Get to Know Former U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert Wilkie

"For those who are not familiar with your service in the Trump administration, your background. In multiple uniform services, rising to under Secretary of Defense, tell our millions of listers and viewers across the nation a little bit about your background where you came from and how you got to do what you do. Well, it's a very simple. I am the son grandson, great grandson of combat soldiers. I spent my youth at fort sill fort Bragg, and also, as you know, at the royal school of artillery, in lark hill, England. My father was a senior officer in the 82nd airborne division when I was in high school. So my calling was to serve the nation in national defense. My military service has been modest compared to that of my ancestors, but I will say that a formative moment in my life was when the hostages were taken in Tehran. Two things. One, outside of fort Bragg on Bragg boulevard a place you know well, a massive billboard went up that said Iran let our people go. And I had to pass that billboard every day on the way to school and as I got older, I thought, that's what we had become. Under mister Carter, a mendicant, begging the theocratic fanatics and Tehran to let our soldiers and diplomats go. And then the second experience was in my neighborhood. The day the hostage rescue desert one collapsed. And the MPs closed off our neighborhood. They took the name signs off of our homes, and they surrounded colonel Charles beckwith's home. He was the commander on the ground. And president Carter came on that day. And said this was all my fault. I'm the one responsible. That's quite a contrast to what we had in Afghanistan a few months

"mp" Discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence

"First up, though. In parliament yesterday, Britain's prime minister Boris Johnson led tributes to sir David Amos. A man who used his decades of experience to offer friendship and support to new members of all parties. Whose views often confounded expectation and defied easy stereotype. And who believed not just in pointing out what was wrong with society, but in getting on and doing something about it. On Friday, the member of parliament was stabbed to death in a church in the small town of Leon sea in southeast England. As on every Friday, the Conservative Party MP was there to meet local people and hear their concerns. A 25 year old man has been arrested in the attack has been declared a terrorist incident. Many MPs are now calling for greater protections. In the wake of sir David's death, Chris Bryant and MP with the Labor Party called for people to be kinder. He then received a death threat from a man who was later arrested. It's not just name calling, but really, you know, vile threats to people's lives to their families and to those who are around. And we've got to change as a country. We've just got to change. Constituency surgeries where MPs meet voters to discuss local issues are a long-standing quirk of British politics. But not for the first time, there are fears these surgeries may be too dangerous to continue in their current form. So, David Amos was a very long-standing Tory MP. Joe Rogan is a Britain correspondent for The Economist. He was first elected in 1983 is election was seen as a symbol of the coming sort of Thatcher era and the growing Tory party appeal amongst working class voters. And since then, despite being an MP4 decades now, he's never been particularly prominent. He is what is known as a good local MP in British politics, which means that he spent a lot of time listening to his constituents complaints and their worries and their lives. And then he sort of would pick up causes which caught him usually from meeting his constituents. What kinds of causes? For example, I believe one of his early bills was against the cruel tethering of horses, which was something which caused a great deal of agitation in his area. But if we do have a later debate, it does give the house an opportunity to talk about animal welfare generally cruelty to animals and the welfare of farm yard animals figure success was cutting fuel poverty, which was inspired by the rather tragic case of a constituent of his who had died in a cold house and then recently he'd started campaigning on endometriosis because again a constituent had come up to him and said that this disease was very poorly diagnosed and very poorly understood. So he was one of the hundreds of MPs who don't get famous, but nonetheless do quite a lot of good by working on unglamorous causes. And this isn't the first time we've seen it an attack of this sort on an MP speaking to constituents. No, rather depressing ladies and we had in 2016 Joe Cox was murdered by a far right extremist. She was also on the way to what is called an MP's surgery where MPs talk to their constituents here their concerns. It's a pretty idiosyncratic British, political institution, one that many politicians are very attached to. But the meeting with the public element, obviously, it makes them quite vulnerable in some way. So we've had two other attacks of this nature, one was in 2010, which was a Stephen timms, who was an MP for east ham. He got stabbed by another Islamist extremist who attacked him at the time, and then in 2000, we had Nigel Jones who I believe was attacked with a samurai sword and his assistant Andrew Pennington died protecting him. That wasn't any ideological motivation there, I believe it was a constituent who was drowning in debts and mentally unwell and began to blame Nigel Jones for his troubles. So these these surgeries, what are these meetings like? What are they for? Basically, what happens is they're on a regular basis, MPs are expected to go back to the constituencies that they were elected in and hold meetings with their constituents sometimes they will ask for appointments, but sometimes people are allowed to just drop in and MPs almost act as social workers in a way and these things people will come and go. I'm having trouble getting my asylum claims processed. I'm having trouble with antisocial behavior in my area. The road is riddled with potholes where I live. So the very simple things often and I think many of them enjoy involving themselves in the lives of their constituents as feeling like they're making a real difference as a result of become a very central part of their duties. But as much as these surgeries are a British habit, the risk to politicians is certainly not limited to Britain. Yes, to an extent in 2015, we saw Henrietta reka, the mayor of cologne was stabbed in the neck by someone motivated by anti immigrant sentiment. I should add that she survived. We saw the liberal merit. Murdered in 2019 in both of these occasions they were attacked at public events, which aren't quite the same as these one on one meetings that British MPs indulge in. The closest analogy I can actually think of is maybe Gaby Giffords, the U.S. congresswoman who got shot in 2011, she was doing a talk called Congress on your corner, which was sort of informal meetings with voters in her seat. So that's perhaps similar, but that was a bit of an innovation. It's not such an integral part of the political system and political culture in the same way that it is in the UK. So how to maintain that to political culture that quirk and keep MPs safe? There is going to be a review into MP security. The national police, chief council has contacting all MPs to discuss security with them. And some MPs are saying they need to take more precautions. But on the other hand, many MPs are very resistant to this concept, just Phillips, who's a very outspoken, labor MP, so she doesn't want any security measures, which would interfere with her doing her job, similarly, Diane Abbott, who's a black female labor MP and received some of the most vile threats of any MP has said that she wouldn't want any police at her constituency surgeries, because it might put off some of her constituents from coming. She has said that she might adopt a plexiglass screen of some sort, but again, the fact that it's taken frankly two murders for her to begin contemplating this despite the many threats that she receives really does tell you something about how reluctant MPs are to have anything which they feel gets in the way of them interacting freely with their constituents. It sounds as if on balance MPs are more enamored of this kind of face to face contact than they are worried about their safety. Do you think even in the face of this attack that they'll continue to feel that way? Look, I think it's going to be inevitable that there are some changes. Maybe some of them will bring police into the surgeries either standing outside or in the room. There may be an element of MPs becoming a little bit more distant from their constituents because these security measures are a little bit harder to reach, which would be very sad to see because the type of people who come to complain about things to their employees are quite desperate and really are looking for anyone who can offer them some degree of help. So in your view, no chance they'll be abandoned. If I were to inject a slightly hopeful note, I do think the sheer level of attachment that most MPs do have to this surgery will at work means that they are going to try and keep any changes that they feel would interfere with their work to a minimum. We like to criticize MPs a lot in this country and some suggest that the sheer level of vitriol directed at them has contributed to the last two attacks. But most MPs.

"That's not the right word. I felt uncomfortable of sometimes felt despairing of certainly been under the brexit process. The most extreme pressure and it's all been extremely unpleasant but equally. We won a big majority in the twenty nine general election. Despite all the splits that we'd had i think as we move forward people have got to get the head strand. The idea that technology today has completely transformed politics. My first secretary. She became office manager as she was started as a secretary in the typing pool in parliament. She's retired now but she told me that when she first started there were more members of parliament and there were secretaries in the typing pool whereas now to cope with the huge volume of correspondence get through channels. I've got five staff now. And i need them. I could choose more stuff. But the combination in particular of watson on twitter means that fits of temper in particular leaks. These things mean that you can get very public disagreement very fast. So i think anyone's kidding themselves. If they think will ever go back to the politics frankly which i think never existed a politics of older. Everything was done privately. It's not gonna happen because what's happened. Switzerland particular only make it easy to campaign. They also make it easy to make terrible mistakes politically and finding i'm very interested in the way what's up has changed politics because you've always have people organizing as you said. It was often done in private house of common tea rooms. Or in one to one meetings. Weber's when you have walked up groups. Which is i think. A lot of the organizing for the happened during those exit walls. I'm sure it's why your colleagues Surgical operate to that's contributed to make it easier to rebel. But i think it also encourages a particular mentality as well because if you're able to broadcast of us to your colleagues with the knowledge that the mandate getting leaked and ended up in the media. Somehow then it can force people into sort of taking think either increasingly you know aggressive views on things but it can also encourage people to speak out in ways. They might not have done before. I mean if it wasn't whatsapp. Happy signal or something else but yes you're right. The sixers secure group chats is both the blessing and a curse. I'm in so many groups. He's very hard to keep up with them. All but in terms of what does it mean for the public in a sense it. It's been a real benefit to the public. It as we were setting up the bailout schemes. Full the corona virus response to what we would have done without what's up groups of mp's able to feed in particularly to pbs's ideas and demands and needs from businesses and individuals across the country. I mean the system worked absolutely full chat with members of parliament earnestly representing their constituents concerns to ministers coordinated overwhelmingly by pbs's. We were getting people home from overseas. We were designing bailouts. Go helping the government designed bailout schemes. Staring them where they needed to a and actually without the immediacy of being able to give input to ministers. I don't know how we would have served the public in the way that we have obviously been some shortcomings of the corona virus response from any point of view particular. I'm thinking of the excluded. But let's not forget that the government didn't very successfully build a bridge through things like the job retention game the thoroughly so the technology like oh things is for good and good annandale and i think it's the job of responsible politicians to try and make sure it's used for good in ways. Public can be be proud of the that zero in particular on. I'm no. I'm doing is forcing a conversation. Which will have to happen sooner or later. I'm not actually trying to organize defeats the government which steve baker. Thank you very much for joining us. And that's it for this interview. Special pains politics enjoyed the podcast.

So the idea of further lockdowns to me bear in mind. The state the mental health of the nation the huge backcloth the n. eight s which caused both by covert on the response to cove it. It did these things are only incredibly serious. I think we all need to open pray that there are no circumstances where the. Pm is tempted to lock down again. It's horrific and how do you sort of stop. View is one i know. That's quite widely shad among conservative. Mp's and a number of consecutive mp's but when you look at the polling in terms of kobe restrictions. You know the some polling in the economist couple of weeks ago. That said that lots of people who actually wants keeps some form of restrictions including curfew. Forevermore how do you sort of square. How was your message not connected with a wide apart. The public well. it's really challenging phenomenon. Of course people have had legitimate fears of the virus people who have medical conditions that made them vulnerable to the virus or people who are older of course have legitimate fears but this is still a mild to moderate disease for younger people without coma diseases as they say one of the problems. We we've got is some phantom sitting now looking at a book. State of fear by laura dodds worth which quotes some of the people who worked for government on nudge who said that the way that despite psychology had been used was unethical and smacked of totalitarianism. And that's the government's own people who've done it. The government worked extremely hard to get the public to comply. And i think there we've got something of a doom loop. The government promoted tara in the public and they of course the public terrified wish to stay. Look down but it's terminal for our society. I mean whole swathes of our society remained in lockdown will end up trading a life not worth living for many people. If we continue with lockdown. So i suppose i would implore the government to be much more realistic about the risks from this disease and try and get us back into a much more normal approach to life into risk. It's very curious signal because you mentioned is someone who freedom is a big driving ause and you can see that in all of the campaigns and things you've done in parliament steve. But boris johnson sort of is. That has that similar vein is well if you think back to. When he was mayor of london his calms telugu yet he was convinced otherwise and obviously has followed lockdowns three times now in society. Why do you think the prime minister has opted for that towards a different folks. The kind that you'll recovery group is advocated. Well he's not to diversity of opinion. I mean this is something that i've written about with professor roger. Coppell he wrote a book could expert. Failure slightly unfortunate talks eastbound to put people's backs.

I've got really good quality authoritative of voice of what with the professor paul dolan on cost benefit analysis and rajagopalan expert advice and another dr racket bali. Who's both an acute edson consultant under deputy meteorologists. Advise me with not always great. I've been glad to have his advice. I always try and go out there and get quality advice. One of the problems with expert advice is experts are human too so if you ask them to advise will ought to be done. I think if we go back through the archives. We'd find neil ferguson sort of confirming this. They don't want to be wrong on the optimistic side. they're much be wrong on the pessimistic side. That's fine if nothing else mattered..

But anybody who'd gone to eastern europe Would would acquire afoul and he had gone there with the corporate society and He had arranged the twinning of his constituency of three with the town of platinum.

Ghana airways kinds of people. In fact that's why he was made privy council slip because he sold more experts than anybody else So yes he did. Have meetings with them. But my contention is that I will there no secrets in the file. I mean everybody says that Nobody combined single secret in there. What we're talking about is low. Low lebanon information and Some say it's not even stuff from the times. Newspaper pro hansel. Do you know the the westminster reference library collection of periodical. It's it's more like gossip so we can immediately go from spy to gossip. Let's say agent but my contention with that is that nobody has ever phoned us and said well governor dressed in this file Which is twenty two old. Win road Did you ever lift there on the answer to that is no so they have this system. According him to meetings which involved cutting a piece out of the times with a date showing and then sending it to him and that would be cooling him to a meeting week hints swiss lunchtime by default. It was feels restaurants in holloway road. And if they put a roman numeral two next to the day that indicated the meeting must be held. A black hole seven pumping captured. The problem is You know we never lived at this address. They had for us and yet in the filed they have twenty seven reports being sent back to prague talking about this times method of calling him to meetings. Well we never let yeah.

There's been a report that you father's turned up in australia And the that that would be a press conference in melbourne at four o'clock out time for am so we put the phone down and then the phone just never stopped ringing so we decided to take the phone off the hook. Them wait until four. Am until we got him. You know the press conference news festival. We thought it might be his brother. 'cause he'd he lived in australia. He was a pilot for a stay. And you know we thought that. Got things up so we were kind of elated. Then we would have no mistake and we didn't know what to think And then at four o'clock we got the news and it was so my father on the phone saying to my mother yes. Please come to australia and bring sheila with you. So be let let. Let's explain in this. Oh very complicated story. Let's explain who sheila buckley is. Okay so she was my father's mistress and secretary and she is. She's so maligned really sheila. She's had a really rough deal. She should never have been convicted of two years which she got a two year conditional charge. Everybody thinks she was quote in it from the beginning But basically she led what happened was he called her after he in the period when he was missing he could've from hawaii a couple of times. He met her in copenhagen for dan half and he said would he would write to him and she subsequently wrote him four letters but all of that was after he disappeared. What's really through of fa. Sheila was that there was a newspaper on a call in february. Nine hundred seventy five. That said her close. My father had arranged for her close. We sent out in. Trunk is actually quite complicated story involving tonight suitcase and lumping in another but anyway this was in the newspapers. It was picked up by the other newspapers when we went to commit well in october. Seventy five back in the uk. It was repeated by the newspapers and it will went to trial and on but anyway the point is that the customs officer who opened that trunk ankle robot hill when he opened it. They weren't a women's clothes in that trunk So it was a completely kind of made up story for the the the thing that these ties music she did. She say she didn't know about it before he disappeared he. She had known for some time that he was in australia was voicing letters to him She she she known about sunny youthful. You'll father was dead and she she had about it. Yeah absolutely But you know a credit where it's true. She obviously is annoying when somebody knows your father. Stead new thing has been eaten by shocks you know but some. He was worried about his mental health And he might commit suicide and she was just protecting him and when we realized that he had in fact had this terrible breakdown which my mother realized as soon as she arrived in australia which she she flew to christmas day basically You know his voice was really high. It was pitch to wait. He was just completely not himself So yeah i mean. He was He had a breakdown. No doubt no doubt about it. And probably i say pro very much.

And it goes and buys a the times as everyone should do to find out what's going on back home. But he's explained to the introduction he'd taken the the identities of two constituents joe markham unclogged mill dune. I'm gonna do that is is. I think we're pretty appalling. Things done then set about opening up this sort of incredibly complicated network of bank accounts in the two names so it seems as if even he struggled to keep across what he was doing.

You would want aware that there was anything long before the events of nineteen seventy four. Well i was twenty three when he disappeared and toma eighteen so Also some if you like in the thick of it. I was leading my own life. So let's focus on those events. Then it's november twentieth nineteen seventy four and it's announced by police in miami that the labor mp johnstone he's missing we're trading down every clue every lead that we can get and we're encouraging anyone who has any information that might help with the case to get in contact with us is certainly is a mysterious thing that happened here so This is this is an enormous media story there as it would be if it happens day. Police find his clothes a neat pile on a beach. In miami described. The moment that you were told about this On a what you what you sort of made of it. Well i i was found at work and my my two sisters and i went to my mother's house. Where we we heard about it from a colleague of my father and i thought was that he had Either had a heart attack Or cramp bad cramp while swimming because he was a phenomenal swimmer. I mean he would think nothing of swimming from the shore out. You know three hundred jobs or so floating around a bit and then coming back Obviously shocks came into it. You know we're florida has Has he been eaten by sharks. Yeah so that's what we thought and we thought they were looking in the wrong direction because he's swam so far out from shore. We thought that the tides were you know there was expecting him to have gone down one end of the coast and not the other end which she would have gone had been swimming so far out which he undoubtedly would have been so.

The let's take a listen to your mother speaking at the time and has an extraordinary and that also much out of character with my husband's personality that You're not worth answering with thinking about.

Ball's actually feeling like it was a free full that could void and say what they like to bite him well. You can't sue somebody that you know for for libel and whatnot if If they say something about when you're dead so yes. I'm afraid it was rather from. It was actually horrific every day.

Report: UK Military Failing to Protect Women From Abuse

"In the British armed forces, victims of bullying, harassment, discrimination, serious sexual assault. They're being denied justice by woefully inadequate and military complaints, process and justice system. That's one of the main findings of a report published by the UK Parliamentary Defense Committee. Which had evidence from more than 4000 women, including veterans and those still serving 60% said that experience bullying harassment and discrimination in the British armed forces are defence correspondent Jonathan Bill has the report. What's his life? Been a female soldier and what? And asked, I couldn't know. I answer. Oh, boy, I'm a soldier. This is the Army's latest recruitment campaign. It suggests gender is not an issue in today's armed forces, but a report by MPs paints a very different picture. With women suffering disproportionately from bullying, harassment and discrimination. And even sexual assault and rape. The conservative MP Sarah Atherton led the Commons Defence Committee investigation six out of 10 women in our evidence. Said that they don't make complaints because of their replies ALS and reading questions. Put some pressure on this morning. Hey, there we go. Women make up around 12% of the regular armed forces. The report highlights practical issues that need to be addressed, such as being given uniforms and body armor than actually fit. But MPs say they're also gravely concerned that women in the military a 10 times more likely the men To experience sexual harassment. There's so many more instances like mind that don't get reported, because you're not believed you're asking for it. That's the impression you get the fear not her real name was an officer in the Royal Navy, a woman's place. Decided it was up to me where that was, and it was in the Navy. Like the other services.

Angel Munoz Discusses the Creation of His Communication Platform, Beacon

"In his early career angel news was an investment banker specializing in technology. He was fortunate enough to invest in the development of mp threes in the eighties. In addition to this he's well known for being the spearhead of what is known today as e. sports. He's a father to kids and have been married for thirty six years his passion around interactive entertainment specifically in the world of gaming. He tends to lean towards first person shooters because they have a real sense of immersion. He loves post-apocalyptic gains where you have to survive in a world where systems and infrastructure have been completely removed after launching a successful social media platform around the gaming community called g. tribe. He started to create experiences inside the community so much so keenest team attempted to integrate video game aspects into an audio video experience. This is the creation story of beacon so beacon at its simplest if you wanted to make sure your audience understands it quickly. It's an audio visual communication platform with a whole different perspective on what these interactions should feel and look like we were very much informed by gaming. So as you're a game are you will understand the cruel reality that when you are in a game the environment. If you were to step away from from us for just a second you would realize that it's cartoonish but the job of a great. You know game developer ish to engage the suspension of disbelief. So that you for one second or for the entire period that you're in the game believe that you've entered into a whole different reality so what we noticed on. Let's say video conferencing platforms asked. The opposite was taking place. They you know the movement is to make these calls. You know just transferring information from one point to another with a complete disregard of how we perceive so we were inform. And i'm fortunate enough to have lots of friends that are video game developers and over the years developed a few items that we want to integrate into an experience to make it feel more lifelike. The purpose of beacon is to act like a telemarketer. We want to teleport the person your mind into the person's reality so so in my casey will be in my office. And you feel like you're there

Rss feed is distributed essentially everywhere right more or less prefixes acting as a redirect so what's happening is regardless of device or player when a user clicks player download right however with that analytic prefix ping's that prefix that piece of code and redirects download information.

Playing Combo Draws

"We're going to cover some hands today. Where multi way pots we check raised and they kind of a weird card on the turn both played at one k l. on ignition john. Do you want to lead us into the first hand. So this is a hand. That brad played starts with a middle position. Open a cutoff. Lattes and brad is the big wind with queen ten of spades he decides to flat. I guess we could just start here and talk about whether you three about this. Hand that all our these types of hands multi way. I think it's reasonable to three bad. I'm not opposed to it. I liked the cutoff calling is pretty indicative. That like you're not supposed to have a calling range. There so villain is most likely fish. The original prefab opener. I believe i had tagged fish. This hand went down during a poker coaching. Explain livestream so one thing about the livestreams that you know are the drawbacks for me. Specifically is that attention gets divided. You're trying to describe things trying to figure out where all the buttons are so you can miss some stuff that you otherwise would not have missed. So i'm just gonna pull out all the excuses before we jump into this hand and say like well okay clayton and just like sort of call a call pre instead of squeezing on reflex okay. I'll our come to your defense a little bit. I think just looking at those. Just looking at this without any hud stats. I agree the cutoff. Looks like a fish once he flats the mp open. I can't tell much about the given that he has like a seven hundred dollar stack and open to a reasonable size. I'll just look at this and say like it's sort of a disaster if we three about this hand. Mp calls a fish folds which i think is going to happen quite frequently and we we isolate ourselves versus a reasonably strong empty range and we lose like the person in the hand. That's most likely to donate their stack in some way so that one of the reasons that i might decide to call slightly more often than three about with a fish flooding. Yeah that's fair little backstory. So m p m p is either a week rag or a fish because they called a cold four bet with queen jack suited in a spot. Where i know. You're not supposed to call queen jack suited so anyway That was happening a little earlier on so that was the rationale even other stats like okay. That hand specifically was like. I don't think that's supposed to be a thing so anyway. With that said we go to flop at quainton spades. There's eighty dollars in the pot. The flop is jack of spades eight of hearts for of spades. I start out by checking. And i think that i should not have checked this. This is where the hand kind of got away for me from the jump. I like leading here especially against when. I'm battling against multiple fish with a hand like this because you know some bad things can happen when we check raise or combo draws here just well. The thing that the thing that is going to happen what happens right you check raise a komo draw and then you turn a pair in a pot with an sp are of like two and then you get kind of frozen right where it's hard to construct an ice checking rage. Nice betting rage. You don't necessarily want to bet with your pear. Your combo draw now because you're beating villains worse flush draws so like yeah it's you're being bills whereas flush draws in the hands at villain has that are beating you just jam and kind of make your life miserable so anyway.

Despite the fact that i'm never going to own a home here but that's like a conversation. Podcast one hundred percent the coversation for this podcast though is is about reopenings and somewhat of a return to some semblance of normalcy and vaccinations and the planning for what we should say like is like the short to medium term future because there are so many questions in the era that time at this point seventy five percent of eligible canadians have a first dose more than twenty percent of eligible people are fully vaccinated and i have to say with fewer people than that happened. I it was in the us. You and i talked about the cdc decision a few weeks ago to say pave. You're fully vaccinated you. Can you can dance if you want. You can leave your friends behind you. Can you can like do you can do so many different things you can. You can let your mascow and we thought maybe that's too soon but we don't have the equivalent of a guidance kind of here. In this country we have no guidance with the fully vaccinated in this country. And now you know. Cbc ran out what you can do. If fully vaccinated story. I think the globe and a couple of other places did as well and it's all of us in the media trying to fill a gap because because we haven't heard much. We do know that the guidance is coming. We know this because journalists heap asking about it. Doctor theresa tam are public health. Officer got the question a few times so did her. Deputy dr howard new. And here's what he had to say. I think in the coming days and weeks you will see the federal government coming out with different types of risk assessment tools. Because i think the doctor camps pointers. There's no single size fits all. You can't tell everybody yes you could do this. It really depends on your individual context. So you know based on your your own health status. What this vaccination status of maybe the people you want to be a a socialize with All these other factors come into account so fair enough. No single size fits all vaccinated. Prison in toronto may have to be more cautious or just have a different reality than a double vaccinated person in saint john but there is a restlessness to not having the short and medium-term answers. I think and he's starting to settle it. Yeah i think. I think that's fair to say i mean we are not that far along in terms of double vaccination rates you point out like we've got a ways to go but vaccines are coming in really fast and furious So those numbers are going to go up very quickly Probably by the end of this month sort of early july will be in a completely different space. And i think people wanna be able to plan and think about what their lives might be like One of the things. The government you know did do. This week was start to talk about what travel might look like start. Say only start so if you have both vaccines and you travel to the us for instance you can come back and you don't have to do the corinthian hoteling your don't even have to quarantine you just. You're you're fine You have to have a plan in case that doesn't work out but but generally you can just come back and you're okay but there's still lots of questions around you. When is the border going to open more. We're can we travel to. Should we be traveling this much years. A case in point. I booked a plane ticket to home. where i haven't been since december twenty nine eighteen. Yeah i looked at dick at home to manitoba. Not really knowing if that was going to be okay like not really knowing if i was going to have to self isolate when i got there for two weeks or or how it was you know work just on the hopes set by the time the plane ticket comes around that all that stuff will be clear and worked out on that. Someone will tell me whether i'll be able to hug my mom but it is kinda. It's kind of curious that we are now close to the end of june and we are getting those numbers to where people want them to be and still we don't really know what the world looks like first of all. I hope you're able to talk to your mom. That sounds like a really nice time for. I want the movie festival for you. Thank you thank you. Perfect are all of our dreams. But this is a trouble with this idea of. No one single size fits all because it's bearing out in all of the reopening plan so berta is a bird is already in stage two. How do you do. this bird. Has movie theaters indoor dining museums. They're open their opening with reduced capacity. They're open again. Alberta goes to stage three of its reopening on july first bc also in his second stage then contrast with ontario which is only in step one but that story that you mentioned about international travel restrictions changing so yet the idea that you're if you're canadian fully vaccinated you can just come back into quarantine after we're handling that through. The government's arrive can app and that starts july fifth so that's one way that people are able to prove that they're fully vaccinated while navigating borders. There's still the question of will there be similar mechanisms for us to do to do that to do things inside anywhere we don't know and i think like this period of time where everybody's just wondering about. The next step is rife with frustration. Like it is nice. We say it is nice that this is the next thing to worry about. Because we've really made it really firing and short period of time But it feels like maybe the place we've landed is a place filled with questions. And no one willing to commit to answers at least in the short-term yeah and i will say provinces of course i have a big role to play in this that that has been the complicating communications factor throughout right lick. It is one thing for the federal government to give advice for public health agency of candidate to give advice. It's another thing for the provinces decide based on what's happening in their own region. How things are going to unfold. And i i get that you know. Quebec is is also making changes for instance. Starting friday if you've been double axed and you want to gather inside you don't have to wear a mask Now if someone said to me right now you can do that. I still wouldn't do it. I also think there's an interesting sort of You know here are the parameters in which you need to operate public health wise. But i still think we're also going to see people making their own sort of risk assessments. The problem is right now when you don't have clear parameters I don't know does it. Does it result in the opposite thing happening right then. People just started do whatever they want. And i think that's the danger right now because of the delta variant which which spreads very quickly And and not saying there's gonna be a fourth wave touch wood but but there if you don't put the things out there the benchmarks out there. Do you run the risk of having people just doing a little bit. Whatever they.

"mp" Discussed on Party Lines

"Told his caucus on wednesday morning. There isn't a choice between the liberals the mvp the green and the bloc quebecois. They're all the same and they're all part of the problem. He also said there aren't five choices for canadians. There's not five parties to choose from really. There are two there are the conservatives and there's everybody else because they all represent the same thing which is a strong way to position yourself as you say given that you're trying to move the party in a different direction and and trying to win obviously one of the things that we're dealing with also is the story of quebec like how this is going to play out. How a possible election will play out in quebec. Our pal era gronyea wrote that the path to a liberal majority would have to run through a pretty big winning in quebec and the situation there. Are things interesting because you know shantallow. Bear pointed out in the star that this is actually a pretty good stretch for the for example. You know. they're they're polling really well within the normal range of support but the thing that setting them apart right now is drug meet sitting has the highest approval of any federal leader. That's supported i think. By his responses to two big stories discover the remains outside back kamloops residential school and also. His speeches are the attack on the muslim family in london. I think anyone watching the leaders respond to those events would reasonably identify jagmeet as someone may be responding with emotional proportion to the stories instead of a political polish and the flip side of that. Is that the mvp of supporting the liberals plenty of time over the last couple of years and they will need a really good story for why they should be the alternative and so at least from that perspective it's really unclear what becomes of the next election. And what positions. They sort of push forward. Yeah i think that's fair to say and you could say the same about the block because the two of them hold the balance of power right now and have yes on. Different issues supported the government. So it wouldn't be defeated and so the point of tools making you know it is a valid one. I think the liberals also as well as having to make the case about why an election might be needed at a time when you know people are tired and trying to get back to their lives they also obviously are looking at the polls and you mentioned the end ep there but the the polls are probably not as decisive as as the liberals would like them. Obviously if you're going into election you're trying to better the outcome in this case trying to get a majority again but you know on average. They're separated by you. Know five points. Maybe most projections still have the liberals short of majority If the ep is you point out it is successful in some places that could do some damage to the liberals And if they can't pick up more seats again as you point out in quebec then there's problems there too so it's not as though It's not as though this is like sewn up. And i guess that would be sort of my question for why it would be so important for an election right now however i will say that elections Campaigns do change things. We've seen that time and again and they the campaigns themselves matter and people pay attention in a different way. And i know we've talked about this on this podcast before. But i feel like people feel more connected to government than they ever have perhaps in their own lifetimes because of this pandemic you know th they may not be down with that much government in their lives frankly but they they now have an idea of what government can and cannot do and i wonder how that too will factor into you know what canadians want to.

I got to take care of my okay, Great. That's a capitalist answer, not a socialist answer. You doubt me here, Check this out. So a critique, though, from the left, that would say, um, if you are a trained Marxist If we're talking about a certain kind of radical politics, that extravagant homes of any sort or multiple properties of any sort is itself contradictory to the ideology that you hold. And so it's not about having money per se, but that it's about Or about property per se, But it's about there being a potential contradiction between your express politics and your lived practice. Sure, And I think that is a critique. That is, um wanting.

Light 4Bets At $5/$10 Online 6-Max Cash

"Want to start the hand number. One that i played about a month ago and i played it on a poker coaching. Dot com playing explained livestream as well so Brad's hand starts with us at a five hundred table playing five ten. No limit cash on ignition. Brad is under the gun or excuse me. We're finding five handed. So brad is in the middle position with eight seven of spades opens twenty five dollars the player in the cutoff. Who looks like a rag. Three about two seventy dollars. Everybody else folds caught off and brad are. I guess we should finish up. Ashen brad bets to two hundred thirty dollars. Oath brad and the cutoff started about a hundred and forty five big blinds effective on rag but his three about sizing was team very very small even versus a hundred big stack versus two and a half x. Open making it. Seventy is definitely smaller than what i would expect. I'd expect closer to ninety or maybe even one hundred out a huge deal. I think the more interesting. Our pre flop is your decision to four but actually don't actually think that villains throughout sizing somewhat reasonable at this depth and because they're in position. I don't think they necessarily need to go super big because they can. They can go smaller here. Then they can defend very appropriately versus four bat swallow retaining position throughout the rest of the hand. And if i call very often facing the small three bet sizing then basically. I'm gonna be out of position in a deep sack pot throughout the rest of the hand which is going to be pretty annoying to navigate so actually think villains three about sizing here is it's reasonable. I don't think it's it's definitely not a not worth nitpicking over the sizing for sure. Yeah in seventy eight. Suited is gonna be commits close to the bottom of my. Mp opening range. It's a handed. I mean again. I'm probably defending almost everything except for some alike off suit. Ace jack off type hands. I think those hands are going to get folded but pretty much fitting everything versus small three about sizing and need to find some hands to forget with for board coverage and then also bottom of range type for hands that could flop pretty well can give me some equity post flop and like i said can cover some some of the lower middling type boards that we would like to have some good hands on those boards to so because of all of that. I decided to go ahead and four about this hand if it does five bet which i don't know that they're gonna five bet really anything here even aces and kings. I think those hands might just flat but if they do five bed it's obviously pretty easy to fold the seven hundred and eight.

"mp" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM

"Radio and love all things Tech. We have done it. We have reached the ultimate episode of our relationship with media and its evolution over the years Episode seven of that arc And when I started down this path, I was thinking it might be a three or four part series, And here we are, and Episode seven So let's get right into it Now. In the last episode, I talked about the development of the MP three compression format, which would have an enormous impact on both technology and culture as well as business as it turns out. The MP three format is a Los e format. That means you lose a bit of the information in the original file as you compress it down. And that means when you decompress it when you expand it back to its regular size later on, you actually don't have the full file. Some of that information is just Gone. Now. The goal of the MP three compression format is toe on Lee cut information that doesn't affect the quality of the ultimate sound. But that depends not just on the compression algorithm but also Sample rate in the bit death that you select as you compress stuff as you use the encoders. Typically, you can set these features and you can use, you know Mork compression, which means you're going to have files that are of a smaller size. They're easier to handle. But they also have more likelihood to have some artifacts and distortion in them, or clipping or other elements that indicate that, Yeah, you really compress that file. Now a few things helped make the MP three and other compressed audio file formats and enormous success. They weren't huge successes right out the gate but took a little time And then once it Got to a certain level they really took off. The first thing that helped was that Internet download throughput was slowly on the rise, meaning it wouldn't take a full day to download a song or anything like back In the old days. We were all using dial up and we had very slow modems. It took ages just to download a small file. You wouldn't even dream of trying to tackle something like a raw audio file. Even a compressed one would have taken quite some time. The second element that really helped Was that hard drive storage space was also So you could fit more files onto your hard drive because the hard drives were getting higher and capacity. Some MP three players that came along later on after the MP three format had been settled, actually had physical hard drives in them. They had tiny, hard drive platters that actually moved inside. The the portable player actually had a Creative Zen player that was like that as a bit of a break. It was heavy, and it was a little bulky, largely because it was housing a physical hard drive later on, most of these players would switch over to solid state drives. Those air faster. They're lighter and you don't have to worry about physical moving components with those. The third factor that made a big impact on the MP three success was that the compressed files worked well with both both of those first two factors. The first two things Complimented the MP three. The file size is the MP three's were smaller than the raw audio files so they didn't take us much time to transfer over the Internet. And they took up less hard drive space, which meant that consumers had a chance to carry around an entire music library on a portable device. You might be able to have a few CDs in your car and thus have a selection of maybe a dozen different albums. But on a portable MP three player of a sufficient hard drive size, you could have hundreds of songs on there, so it really changed the game that way. Then there were the sharing services like Napster and cause off and lime wire and numerous others. These were the bane of the recording industry, and they lead to some pretty high profile, draconian lawsuits that I'll talk about a bit later in this episode. The service is enabled users to share copies of files with each other, and they very quickly became the training grounds for copyrighted material, sometimes unreleased, copyrighted material. So Stuff was leaking on the Internet before it could get officially published as CDs. So instead of going out and buying a CD and ripping it on a computer to put songs on the MP three player or buying a song, often online store like iTunes, which came a little bit later. People were instead downloading client software to connect a peer to peer networks and grab that stuff for free. And along the way they risk pulling down some nasty computer viruses and other malware because not everything was what it claimed to be on those services you might think. Oh, there's the new Bruce Springsteen album. I'm just going to download it, and it turns out that it's a Trojan horse for some sort of malware that you're completely unaware of. It was not unusual in those days to download a file and then try to play it so you can listen to the music and nothing seems to happen. And you might think. Oh, it's a corrupted file. The download didn't happen properly. It could also be that it was actually nowhere. So that was a risk you had to take, and hopefully you are at least aware of that risk if you were engaged in that behavior. Some people became obsessed with collecting music files. They established enormous digital music libraries of their own. Sometimes they'd even download stuff. They never really planned to listen to. Just so that they could have it and people were purchasing fewer CDs, and that was a huge blow to the recording industry. There were multiple reasons for that again. I'll talk about that a little bit more in depth later on, but This was this was a scary thing for record labels because the profit margin for CDs was really good. You know, they see these were cheap to manufacture. You could sell them for a really good profit and cos obviously did not want that cash cow to go away. So when they started seeing that trend on the decline Companies really freaked out, and there were a lot of different reasons that contributed to that decline. But the company seemed to really focus on piracy as being the one main reason for that happening. Worse than that company started seeing those albums get leaked. Like I said, before, they could even publish them. And they were wondering, how is this happening? How can these songs that haven't even published? They haven't played on the radio. They shouldn't really be outside the control of the company. How are they getting out to get leaked onto these services? Because people were downloading the latest songs from artists days or sometimes even weeks before the album would actually drop. The New Yorker did a profile on someone responsible for thousands of leaks. He was not the only one but This is a representation of what was going on. There's a guy named Del Glover. He was working at a Polygram CD manufacturing facility in the Carolinas, and Glover claimed he never personally smuggled any of those production CDs out of the facility. But he had a network of employees who would do that for them for him. So he would, you know, rely on these people to smuggle out brand new CDs that were Being produced. But not yet being sold One of the ways they would do this is they would commonly produce more CDs than they actually needed for an order Because sometimes you know you have irregular. CDs that are pressed some there might be some manufacturing error. Something is affecting the quality on sometimes you would just end up with extras anyway, and those extras were always meant to go through a shredder so that the material could be destroyed and then recycled. But you could just secretly, you know, hide one of those CDs on your person while you're taking all the rest of the shutter because no one was keeping track of the shredded Disks. So if you did it and you were careful and you didn't get caught, you could stand to gain from that. So Glover would take the smuggled disks home and then he would rip the music off of them using his computer. And upload the files to a ringleader of a piracy ring who then made them available in various peer to peer networks, well, first on centralized networks and later peer to peer networks. This also helped start the idea that The content on the Internet is free. It's a It's an idea that's got a pretty strong hold on the average Internet users psyche this these days, this concept that if I if I go online, I should be able to get stuff for free. People got used to that idea. I didn't have to walk into a store and lay down cash for purchase. Now, In some cases, artists or companies might allow people to listen to, or even download some content for free. It actually becomes something they're welcoming. They might think of it as a type of marketing. But in other cases, people were just pirating the heck out of stuff. They were just copping it because they could not because it was allowed, and the thought of paying for content was on the decline. The revenue model for the Web Was largely ad based, right if you went to a website, chances are that website was making money by using Web advertising they were.

That's GonNa look like I don't think the district has put out or approved a final plan for the fall yet But we do know you know right now. They are face a hang a their position their balanced so to speak what their their checkbook looks like. They're five hundred fifteen million dollars in the red Yeah that's not including the pension liability. That's not even talking about their operating funds which three years from now is looking at a north of three hundred million dollar deficit as well So this is really significant and and This money is this issue is not going to go away. This is why board in two thousand thirteen use some of those tools that act ten gave it to try and address some of these issues You know so I think this is something that's not going to go away. There's a lot of concern about this. And Wow they were you know paying lip-service I suppose to all of the financial issues. They went ahead and continued rates expanding and ultimately unanimously passed the budget that spends more than it says last year That establishes a fifteen dollars an hour minimum wage starting in January and a whole host of other things including the first of that almost ninety million dollar referenda Voters approved and now as it turns out more than twenty five million dollars of that is going to salary increases. That were approved last year before the referendum was even Kurt. So ninety million dollars I mean honestly Milwaukee you deserve this because you voted in a ninety million dollar referendum for the for the most irresponsible governance of an education system in probably in the country. It least though in Wisconsin for as long as anybody can reasonably remember and they sliced off twenty five million dollars of that for salary increases. And it's not enough. It's not enough Ola. Because we're talking about when you add five hundred and fifteen million with three hundred million dollars. That's three quarters of a billion dollars. That's just going to stuff for right now. Plus on top of that almost two billion dollars unfunded pension liabilities. I mean there isn't a referendum that is going to cover this and yet but hey you guys in Milwaukee you you think eighteen percent proficiency is acceptable. What can we do about that? They're not much we can do about that Ola. There's not much you know I'm kind of it's it's meetings like these and especially after you spend a couple of days I have going through these audit reports and seeing how bad their fiscal picture has gotten especially over the last few years It's astonishing really and let's not forget as well that they increased their their dollar commitment to the black lives matter Political program that has been funded for the past couple of years to believe the amount was a little bit north of six hundred thousand dollars. So there's all kinds of very important things that the Milwaukee School district is prioritizing. That have absolutely nothing to do with improving these pathetic performance scores on standardized testing in the in the school district. Well thanks for coming on the program. I appreciate all you can do is tell people and if they want to go to the polls and approve more dollars and they're comfortable with the idea that their kids are functionally illiterate much. Anybody can do about that. Thanks for coming on the show Ola. Thank you for having me to have you. All I can conclude. Is that the citizens of Milwaukee. Don't give a blink. You don't care that your kids are stupid. You don't care that your kids are basically breathing in and out. And you have paid an enormous amount of money for the teachers and the school staff and the indoctrination to do not to do very little more than make sure your kids are in fact breathing in and out because they're not mastering English not mastering math not mastering science. So yeah and you're rewarding it. You are rewarding. This you love failure. You follow and failure. It's absolutely amazing to me. Why do people stay in cities? I don't know because it seems like once you've been there for a while you get afflicted with the idiocy virus. Yes everything is worse. And we're paying more for it so more of that. It's true in Milwaukee. It's true in Madison. It's true in just about every city that has a significant number of people in it. I'll take a quick break and be right back on the back here. Yeah his was talking about millions of dollars at the Milwaukee. School.

"Ahead. For those of you joining me after the three o'clock hour. In. Madison We'll talk about the assault on the churches by Dane County. We'll talk about what's going on in Minneapolis and how that has apparently just organically spread across the Midwest, but I. Ski macgyver Institute is on the program with me to talk about the Milwaukee School. System Milwaukee School, system. Is broke the Milwaukee. School system is operating in a deficit I'm looking at the numbers that you have posted in your latest piece, so. This current fiscal year sees the district's total balance sheet, a five hundred fifteen million dollar half a billion dollar loss. When you project it out to twenty twenty four, you can add another three hundred four million dollars, and then if you take a look at the unfunded pension liabilities, you're talking about a billion dollars, so that's a lot of money to be in the whole and yet. Apparently, it's just a whole. The Milwaukee Public School system would like to continue to dig. That is absolutely true. Vicki Yup, what we're seeing here yet again as the NPS sport just refusing to face any sort of fiscal realities. So. What's going on here? I mean they're piling more dollars on two on the pensions. They want to make easier to retire younger. And they want greater contributions to the pensions. Act Ten says that we're going to go back to the old Wisconsin State Law that never changed by the way this is just saying we're going to follow the law. You employees have to make a fifty percent contribution for your pension. That's not the fifty percent of the album fifty percent of the investment we, the government will make the other fifty percent, and that seems rational because it was taking away the employees contribution that got pension so far out of whack so. Is this like some kind of screed kind of fiscal screed against at ten? You know I don't know specifically how it interacts with Han, just knowing how how expansive that law was. What I do know was that when Acton was put into place one of the things that really saved a lot of districts including of Yes for a time was it gave districts the ability to? Change up their contracts and their plans for retirement pension, all of these sorts of benefits in ways that they didn't have the freedom to do book for because everything was put at the collective bargaining table, and so, what was forwarded by one of the Committees for the full board to vote on last night was the plan That was let NPS empl employees who are hired before June thirtieth of two thousand thirteen. It would let them retire h fifty five. Five if they have worked at the district for fifteen years, and they have saved at least seventy percent of their sick leave balance so ultimately what? The board actually approved very late last night, they we just published a story on this I believe in the last fifteen minutes actually The district went a slightly cheaper route, not by much because this will feel at about eight million dollars overall bringing the unfunded pension liability to close to a billion dollars. the one thing, but the board changed from the original recommendations that I had my story yesterday was that they are requiring employees serve at the district for at least twenty years in order to get this kind of benefit. So twenty years full pension. and. You can retire I. Mean You have to be fifty five, or can you work years and be and be forty five? It's it. You need to have all three of those things, so it'll be eight at age fifty five. If you have worked there for at least twenty years and banked at least seventy percent of your sick leave ten months old, I wanNA. What's the return on investment for the Milwaukee Pensions Right now? Not to cover billion dollars. So so that is important to the educational outcome Y. Well you know what we are told apparently is, but this is a promise that needs to fulfilled not only to the NPS, teachers the NPS employees as a whole You know they're still pushing this idea that if we focused on retention focus on upping those benefits for every employee that somehow magically that will improve our academic capabilities for students, as as you know as we were just talking about NPS has long struggled with their chief met right now. They're sitting sixteen percent proficiency for math. In the last year, about eighteen and a half proficiency percents proficiency for English Language Arts with extraordinary discrepancies between racial ethnic groups. So yet again, what we're seeing is NPS is choosing to. Prioritize really it's it's unions and those bargaining groups over the types of academic. Focus that we really in right right right? That's exactly the problem. So for sixteen percent proficiency math, eighteen percent proficiency in English for about ten percent proficiency for black kids in English about eight eight and a half percent proficiency for black kids in math. The city of Milwaukee taxpayers ought to be footing the bill to the tune of a greater than one billion dollar deficit for a school system. That wasn't even an operation for the last three months of the school year. Yeah. You know news really. No savings from that from from kids, not being in the schools. Sure sure, of course not, and you know one of the things we've been talking about. And this was a heated topic of discussion. Last night was how much money the district is going to have to spend in terms of preparation. Four going back to the fall weather, we're GONNA need to still be social distancing very very contentious issue. They're thinking. They're going to have to spend. You know somewhere in the millions of dollars on things like peaky e. No honestly so they need to spend more money. Because they they didn't have school for three months, so they need to spend more money. They can't save any money for not having school for three months. That is my understanding. I think you know this is something. They were debating back and forth for for a very long time. about what exactly that's GonNa look like. The district has put out or approved a final plan for the fall yet but we do know you know right now. They are face a hang a their position. Their balanced so to speak what their their checkbook looks like. They're five hundred fifteen million dollars in the red Yeah, that's not including the pension liability. That's not even talking about their operating funds, which three years from now is looking at a north of three hundred million dollar deficit as well so this is really significant and and This money is this issue is not going to go away. This is why board in two thousand thirteen use. Some of those tools that act ten gave it to try and address. Some of these issues You know so I think this is something that's not going.
