Republican Governors Infuriated by Biden's Vaccine Mandates
"The new vaccine mandates that president biden announced last week will affect about one hundred million americans all told and while it seems that many americans agree with the president. There's also been a significant backlash with some gop. Governors vowing legal action and other top republicans calling for a public uprising. Margaret talev is managing editor for politics. At axios hi margaret hi. How striking is this reaction. We've seen especially over the past few days from republicans. The republican governors in states like florida and states like texas. They're responding to the gop base that is strikingly on the side of the the freedom not to be vaccinated the freedom to work in a place where your boss can't tell you what to do and it is that question. Mark about the most vulnerable districts for democrats that is really driving this push by republican politicians to jump all over joe biden for these mandates. The argument is that it is an issue of personal freedom or of medical choice. Of course americans who aren't comfortable with taking a shot have the right to speak out against it and have the right to resist. The question is what's the breaking point between free speech. You know civil disobedience and a threat to the nation a threat to national security violation of the law right and former president bush compared those threats to national security that you're talking about with the terrorism that took place on nine eleven at an anniversary ceremony and shanksville pennsylvania on saturday little culture overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But then there's disdainful pours in their disregard for human life and their determination to defile national symbols. They are children of the same foul spirit and it is our continuing duty to confront them.

It's a glorious opportunity for the mind to go and get real force team minutes Because you're right. He was in the for steam. And what has happened the amount with a young player when they get the opportunity. They have to take that opportunity. No there are some your whitecaps players that are being sort of almost drip-fed or forced into the Starting lineup contains or getting some minutes here. It's very very important that the those guys take those opportunities because docs unfortunately where the reputation is going to be made if they if they don't make an impact at the team struggles along and all of a sudden those ones who have just played bit parts they're the ones that can be easily discarded so this is a really really important time for theo.

Preventing Burnout in the Daily Podcast Grind With Ashley Hamer, Managing Editor and Host of 'Curiosity Daily'
"Weekly shows. You'll often just there's a. There's a tried and true formula. You record you produce you. Release you record. You produce you release to do that with the daily show you know. Some people can do it. It may be a recipe for burnout. It's that's a lot to do every single day. So there are ways around that you can batch your tasks that is going to be the theme of this day is you can get all of you. Can you can do all of your writing. You can do all of your content planning and record multiple episodes in one. Go so one. One example of that is in the center here batch production. You have maybe two episodes of new content. You have one episode. That's just evergreen that you can run anytime you record all of those together. Do all the production at the same time and then you have three episodes and it's less time planning less time scheduling less time. You know getting out all the equipment. It's a little bit faster but of course not every show can do that. Some shows are more timely. Some shows are new shows so a solution to that might be kind of a blend you could do. The record produce release schedule for those really timely episodes that need to come out tomorrow but in addition to that so that you always have daily content. You could also have some evergreen stories that you you record all together and you have multiple episodes in one recording and production and session the for a science. Show what we'll do is a lot of our content is evergreen but will also cover things like you know the the venus missions that were just announced. You know we will. We can pop in and do a timely story in this process. It's it's very flexible but if you're not a science show like we. Are you know a news. Podcast could possibly run a primer on. How the electoral college works. During every election season or a comedy podcast could re run a segment where like a running joke head originally started so everybody can like here that that little bit of history. There's there's a lot you can do to have content for every day of the week and yet still have time to create the stuff. You really wanna create.

Covering up for Hitler and covering up for Stalin. Covering up for Hitler. And covering up for Stalin. In the Washington Post wasn't much better. You have a reason. The reason to despise these corporations. You would think that a corporation That has as its business journalism. And then uses that under the First Amendment of the Constitution. To not only destroyed journalism. But to in essence, be a propaganda of sorts. Propagandist of sorts. For the Hitler regime by its silence. For the Stalin regime by its cover up.

Being The New York Times and you can't trust that corporation being The New York Times and The Washington Post wasn't much better.

"There's a lot of strange interaction that we've never thought about with With bars about how we order. Now we pay. I mean if you can send me a bill. And i can press a button or if i can order and you're slow. Come to my table last few questions. Or whatever. But i don't have to flag you down or get out of the table more quickly and a lot of these. A lot of places. Iraq had ninety minutes See moments just because they were trying to different socially distanced and things like that and yeah just having out. I mean it's not strange. That apps are going to change everything but between then mo and these touchless payment apps numb just ordering apps. I had a real easy time getting alcohol. Last summer vanderhoek. It stays who thought that you are quote will come back fast. Toronto ten year old technology. And now it's and disappear and donate. What do we do without. You are so as you know. A lot of bars and restaurants and hotels are opening reopening. is happening a lot in new york city but also in many others Cities right now so in coming months what kind of stories are will be focusing on. Well just this was a little more on restaurants but the the article detained for example. I talked to a lot of chefs. About where what they thought was going to be. The biggest problem in the hospitality industry the next few months and every single one of them said understaffing. So i think we're not going to get back to the four. Am bars closing and I think we're still going to be working with restricted hours and in restricted seating and smaller staffs and limited. Many as for i'm thinking through the summer I think in the fall. We're going to start seeing things if virus can be contained in all of those usual caveats I think we've got a few more months kind of this hybrid model As far as what we're focusing on it's kind of navigating the world. Because i think it's gonna be frustrating for consumers and for the bars and everyone's frustrated and i understand it on both sides I also wanna see. We had a lot of important discussions last year. I wanna see where that goes. I wanna see if workers are treated better you know. Wages are increased if there's more voices being heard just You know i get excited. I was a Of it was such a good name. There's a bar that's opening. Emory called think it's called whiskey or whisky in a whisky. And it's a it's women are owns. minority owned. And it's going to be open open this week it's eight. Am to one a. And it's a bakery also serves cocktails. And i might if i can get a muffin. Undecided iraq at nine. Am on a wednesday. I'm like that to me is a fascinating story And it made me really interested as opposed to just be like it's a bar that serves food and drinks and cocktails are sixteen dollars and you know you can get burger Let's let's do the non alcoholic bar. Let's do the meatless barbecue. Let's do only jin let's do the bakery and ceramics at nine am. I'm like that to me is like it's exciting in a way because i think we're going to have to be interesting. Factly agrees we call our podcast hospitality forward because we truly believe in our industry and that it is coming back and he would be back stronger than ever and we already see that happening in new york city in in other cities as well. So can you tell us if there's anyone or any organization that is to inc great work. That is moving has pretty forward somebody we we at inside huckabee. I'm working with has been the us bartenders. Guild and they had their own Charitable initiatives within that So we have directly I i'm not can say directly. We've done fundraisers for them and we created We helped create a product line. T shirt that said you know something some sort of dive bar t some sort of celebration of dive bars where we gave the money to the us bartenders guild and but on their site. They have a ton of resources and one thing. They helped me do is. I didn't article mental health Hospitality industry Early in the air and they have great resources on that site on their charitable arm That was a big help to me. Connected me are tenders connecting with different organizations. So i guess for me that was really important I can't even imagine i cannot. I worked at home. And i wrote things occasionally get on his call. I could not imagine. Not knowing if i could go to work every day or if i did if i was going to get sick or So to me. That's what became important. So i would say if you're looking for something start with the us bartenders guild and then look at through their charitable arm. And then they have mental health. Resources will sit there and through there. You might be able to find something that directly connects with like what you're interested in. I sort of took a broader approach and said here all the resources go forward. There might be something out there that if you look at that list you could narrow down and fine. What you You use listener. Wanted to help out with i have to say. Us bg has done such a great work. The pandemic study for the community. And i remember joining one of the seminar and there was a mental has expert laura and the she said something that stuck with me she said mental health is everything and everything is mental health and i thought it was so meaningful and i think a lot of people talking about the mental wellness. But let's face it. Everyone has gone through such a tough time. During the pandemic at thing is important to our that and was if he can get help get help that. There are some resource out there waiting for you. I don't think everyone knew that and I mean i can't speak for bartenders. Just as a writer. But i was really impressed when i saw their list of resources. I i didn't know this existed until i share. I'm really glad it's there that they're promoting. Hopefully this'll be one of the silver linings of the pandemic that you know would become more open about talking about issues like mental health. Definitely but before we go kirk. What's the best way for our listeners. To contact you pitch their story ideas well right now just because i'm working at home the only to contact me as three male. So you can do that at its kirk k. I r. k. at inside hook dot com and Just cover alcohol technology travel tech and you can pitch style and if you're the things but you know just know that if you have an interesting story and you've kind of read stuff i've written before and you've read inside hooks set of a far better chance of me responding and you can hit you up more than once I have six hundred emails. I have not responded to that. Is what my boxes saying right now. So definitely up more than once that you haven't heard but do not hit me up thirty times. i'd say less than learning burden more than one. That's the sweet spot so it's been so great speaking with you and We see very soon but in the meantime thank you for what you do for our community video. Pichet you and right back out you guys.

"Speaking of great stories. get yet a wonderful interview with edward slinger lands the author of drunk How we sip danced and stumbled our way to civilization and you know at a time when low a. v. and no. Abc cocktails are very popular. You know he comes across as a real cheerleader for alcohol. You know crediting it with you. Know unleashing creativity and creating social bonds amongst people. But he's also you know very up front about You know the the side effects and the fact that you know. We're not evolutionary evolved enough to really process you know high alcohol spirits ahead of us and they're definitely social costs But you think you know. He was alluding to the fact that you know in traditional societies Drinking is is a communal activity. It's very regulated as a result in a. Do you think there's any way to go back to that kind of relationship towards alcohol or is the genie out of the bottle. And you know it's just the drizzly away and you know we're we're all getting south at home watching netflix right. Yeah well. I think it's going to be a combination but i i think the next few months especially because it's summer that a lot of the bars i walked by and i and i know we haven't listed all the restrictions but it certainly looks like a lot of venues near pretty packed. I think people are craving. I know i am i. I was surprised too. Yeah i would go out last summer a little bit. There was one bar there a couple of places that i felt safe. That had outdoor spaces The ones in the basically in the middle of the street And i would. I would drink a little bit prospect park with friends. I've never liked shrinking allowed. And i think Professors single was absolutely correct. And i like the more camino you can make it So before i guess it was like in a society you'd have a toast master. Who kinda regulated. When you drank you only really drank when you were in communal settings. I don't want to go back to that. I do occasionally a glass of whisky. While i'm watching that slicks but I even if it's with one friend. I liked the idea of people around me and A bartender Occasionally talk to without a mask just the the just the general gentleness people around you and Back to you in a way. You can't sit around while you can. It's not healthy. You can't sit around a bunch of people and sort of get drunk on your own. Unless you're a very bad place. I think and i think you're I think once we get back to the idea of going back to bars i think. It sounds strange counterintuitive. But i think our drinking become healthier. I'm not sure you know. I just think it can't hurt to bring him in interaction. Back into the into the next. Absolutely zine the ultimate social lubricants exactly. Yeah as a fan of mars. I enjoyed your recent story onto singer and his salvadore rotten. I mean i can see why bruno would get your attention but for our listeners. Who range from bartenders. To a shops to somebody to travel agents and travel advisories. How can they get on your raider. Well the interesting thing about solar ray which is bruno mars rum Would like to add a very brief. What i liked about that story was. He wasn't him creating a run from scratch. That story anyway. He's very talented. I just don't think that's in his wheelhouse in he sort of came across. And it's like. I want to be part of this and i i can respect that and if i had talent and fame and money you know a or one of the three i would. I would probably invest in. Spirits ran but Just to get on my radar. Hundreds of literally hundreds of emails a day and eighty percent of them are not targeted towards me so i can sort of ignore them because they're not present me with in a way that i went interact. I would say you know get to know inside hook. Read up on it a little bit You know get to know who were. The editors are when you when i get an email this high and has a blank space next to it mocking answer. I don't pick up the phone. Especially since i'm home We i don't even know how people would find my number so i would never pick it up I knew you were calling So you have to start with email. occasionally gotten pitches through lincoln. I don't love it but it's worked You know get another publication and teach me something interesting. it's hard to write about. I don't know you're releasing a new bourbon and it's for years old and it's you know eighty proof than at At won a silver at Bob's award show in new york. And i know that that's not to say it's not good bourbon and all that and it's only available in one state. I mean there's just a lot of things there. I can't work with In the most. Partly if you can't get it anywhere except say you know one town in texas. I'm gonna have a difficult time writing about now. One hundred thousand dollar whiskey then the only one bottle and it's you know in case in diamonds. Yeah i might write about that because it's really fun just interesting stories Getting knowing the publication and pitching me on the things. I write about an not pitching me on things i don't write about. I don't write a lot about women's products unless it's mother's day or valentine's day or or holidays. So when i get pitched a lounge wear for women in june i might forward it to another editor but probably don't even have the time to do that. But as far as boost goes i. I'll yes if you know me you know you boost or pitchman. Tapper pitching travel. Those kind of things. I write about how about bartenders. What are you looking for in bartenders. I mean this is what i look for in any rider. You know people who will get back to me. If i asked him a question. Hey created and that's not saying that more or less responsible than anyone else in the world But i'm also looking for diversity and that's just that's not even race or gender anything that's just like Maybe sometimes use too many bartenders from new york. i would love to get more from the midwest or from out of the country i would love to us You know. I know it's harder but why can't i talk to more bartenders in scotland or You know i did a story on an israeli Whiskey distillery the first one Emanate i believe it's called honey. We'll kanani yeah and that to me was really interesting because that's voice. I don't know. I mean wow Distiller in israel already. Like i'm intrigued. That's that's really interesting Yeah so i just goes back to interesting stories You know pitching me. And knowing who i am and Ob nice oh and then for bartenders Yeah just having Something to say you know like whether you're making something in a different way or you can explain a process or know. Let's say you use all the parts of the line. You know you don't do anything what you don't have any waste. That's interesting Let's say you only use one type of rumford decorate. That's okay if you can explain. Why awesome i'm up for it. I'm up for fun stories and voices. I hadn't heard before said in addition to drinks and food and travel We know you're also love covering tech. The hospitality industry has gone through a lot of innovation during the pandemic as you now. So what would recent innovations tech or otherwise. Have you noticed in hospitality industry. That can there's a lot of different things. There's things just on the bartender side whether it's a waste to make ice cubes. I forget the name of it. But it's something that the giant machine that makes it perfectly clear cube combined home. And i'm like i'm always fascinated by that Oh and i just reviewed a cocktail smoking. Get the can get it home for seventy bucks. Which is the cheapest. I've ever seen one so. I think things like that i. It's more gear than tech. But i still think there's crossover there. As far as when i go out i loved getting the bill pressing a button and paying it and then just leaving and this last summer and fall and all twenty twenty and i've noticed that have kept this.

"And tips for gaining the media's attention in this episode. We're delighted to chat with kirk miller managing editor of inside hook where he writes about booze. Culture tech and travel. Kirk is a veteran writer and editor new york with over twenty. Five years of experience is work has also appeared in rolling stone timeout new york and other top media outlets card so great to see you archer joining us. I had a high michael so for our listeners. Can you tell us about inside her. What kinds of topics it covers. I joined inside hook a few months after it started i. They went through a Dishes two thousand twelve. It was a men's lifestyle site they wanted to be. Originally something like daily candy or three-ls Newsletter based and was supposed to be for successful men who didn't have enough time but wanted to quickly read up and become knowledgeable about things wasn't just booze tack style. It was everything but just done in varia quick hits and yes we've been going nine years I think we've expanded a lot. Where a full-fledged website in the last year we've grown our audience is growing five times bigger than it was not two thousand eighteen And we write a lot about hospitality. I would say that's the main focus. What i do but i'll also write about travel and technology. And even how. All those things intersect as well and then other people on the site right about relationships or automobiles or things that i guess you can call men's lifestyle but i think just are broader lifestyle categories kirk. In your opinion what's the difference between inside hook story and a story in any other publication. Will i think we'll get similar. Things are. we'll get the facts right. We'll talk to people You know those general journalistic standards will be there I think we're one of publications that allows a personality and I think and i'm gonna use these other sites as an example and i don't mean this negativity sites us as resources i like. But i don't think he'll get that insider or forbes or or you will but they'll be opinion columns or whatever i think almost everything we write particularly anything i right even if it's a new story about The top five spirits brands in the world. Just as some guy this morning which is pretty dry. I i will try to inject some sort of personality. I'll try to reference other things i've written. I'll try to give context. And i think i'll just try to make a little more personable i I looked to sites like i used to be called grantland vows. Look to the ring are where you start to know the writers and it's not just like. Oh here's the news. Or here's an opinion piece. It's like here's what the this person is thinking and twi. I don't always agree with everything we right but i really appreciate having all those different voices at the publication. You have to title managing editor and nation editor. So you get to ride and assigned articles west process for finding great stories So we've gone through periods where we've had freelancers and we've gone through periods where we've done everything in house and in the last few years we've We were sold in two thousand eighteen and we Since then have been able to bring a lot more freelancers so the process for me is just finding writers. I like usually just through recommendations vast publicists. I'd asked Only massive you know bartenders mixologist Alaska other writer friends. Who maybe can't worked for me but may know somebody in the you know. It's pretty simple process though me. S you ideas Will pay them a. I would say industry standard rate and the usual back and forth. And you know what. I'm looking for for writer. I think i've got kind of most of the spirits angles covered. But i don't know a lot about wine so i've been assigned me a lot of line content recently because there are people out there i would say almost everyone who knows more about lying than i do so i get when i read something and i learned something and i get really excited about earning something. That's good right so do use social media as part of your research to uncover stories sure I would say the main I guess apps that we use. It's an rss reader called Subscribed to about a thousand different publications on. It's it's really a great way in about thirty minutes. Each morning i can get kind of a snapshot of what's going on in the world and i can divide it by category and use keyword searches and things but i'll use twitter. I'll use instagram. I don't like to use facebook. I'm sorry if you guys use that we have to use it i I've written from anti facebook articles in past them as a corporation. But we use everything. I tried us tiktok the people on staff or much much much better at it than i am We did an article about our of that. was fantastic. i never could have written. I just wouldn't even know how to start in the twenty three year old was an editor pitched it and wrote a great article in that tiktok. We found some really good content in obliges flipping through the feed and it's entertaining is educational. I think tiktok comes in handy sometime. So speaking about something more recent You did a great story on uncle nearest Launching a fifty million dollar venture funds. Tell by park and women owned spirits. Brands you know is fascinating that jackie summers Had his company sorrow was one of the recipients and we love shacking is amazing. But you know we had no idea that. He was actually homeless for a period of time while he was pounding. The pavements you know selling it soar also. You can't get more dedicated than that. I know i when i read that. I didn't know that either we we knew about. We knew about that brand. From years ago. I think when it launched and i hadn't heard about it for a little while and then i read that I'm a huge uncle. Nearest fan just The story behind that and That article few years ago. That pretty much launched on weaver launching uncle nearest. I think i called it. The most important story in american whiskey history it just up it just really reshapes the entire conversation and then for that brand to go from they didn't exist. You doesn't sixteen and it's not two thousand twenty one and they're the fastest growing whisky brand over there available in fifty states and they launched last year. Five million dollars from a mentorship program. Which i think is really important. And then a fifty million dollar. I'm hoping getting these figures right but just the amount of money and success that they that they've been able to put back in and Oh it's also good whiskey.

Florida Law May Thwart Effort by Cruise Industry to Set Sail
"A seven night Caribbean cruise from Fort Lauderdale, with all crew and adult passengers vaccinated. Cruise industry has been shut down for the past 15 months by the Corona virus pandemic. The CDC said last month that cruise ships with nearly all passengers and crew vaccinated can resume sailing. But NPR's Greg Allen reports there is a problem it violates a Florida law. This ad by celebrities sums up the relief and excitement among cruise companies. Some day is finally here and we're ready to sail beyond again. Extended shutdown has cost the industry more than $17 billion in direct losses. The celebrity cruise departing June 26 will be the first under new CDC protocols. CBC says ships can resume sailing under two scenarios. The first is after conducting tests cruises with masks and social distancing in place show they can keep passengers and crew safe. The second scenario, when advocated by the industry, allows ships to resume sailing immediately as long as 95% of passengers and crew are vaccinated. Chris Gray Faust is managing editor of the website. Cruise critic. People will not have to wear masks, they will not have to do social distancing and at least in the US, they'll be able to do shore excursions without you're staying in a cruise ship bubble type of situation. The idea of requiring all adult passengers to be vaccinated is popular not just with the companies but also cruise passengers. House says the survey conducted last week found 80% of cruise passengers said they would prefer to sail on a ship with a vaccine requirement. So what we're finding is that Abbott cruisers want to get back to see, but they would overwhelmingly prefer to be on a ship with vaccines. That's what passengers want. It's what cruise lines want. But it's not what Florida Governor Rond de Santis once. He recently signed a bill passed by the Republican Legislature at his request, which bans company from requiring any customer to show proof of vaccination. Under the law, each violation carries a $5000 fine. Asked about it last week, De Santis said, applies to cruise lines and that if they violated, they'll pay. We are going to enforce Florida law. I mean, We have

His which is problematic collecting all making sure having strong dossier to them tool through them out and then and then meet this guy. Because i didn't want to just if given an opportunity to make an impact by not doing something with the impact that that's the failure and in some respects is not the time to do it so i don't mean fat but wherever it's possible we should try and use the thoughtful given us as effective as possible so i didn't said living meet with the just to be clear.

Why TripleLift Went With Vista, And How It Will Crack CTV
"I don't know if you heard this. But vista equity partners has acquired a majority stake in triple f reportedly investing one point.

Hi ryan and of course the aforementioned ariella wine they ryan his there so ari congress on the on the acquisition hasn't closed yet. But i'm kind of curious now that it's been announced like what are the immediate next steps for for you guys so i. The deal has to close. It goes to things like antitrust approval alike and that takes about six to eight weeks but the next phase is sitting down with the partnership at vista and continue to have conversations about where we want to take the growth of triple lift. How do those conversations going to be different from like obviously that you had conversations before when you were talking about the the acquisition. So how'd the conversations like post closing differ. Well now it's real so now we're we're the nature of the discussions are different. Because we're we're on the same side focused on the same goals as a company. We think about things differently now.

Weekly Market Recap
"What moved markets this week the week ending friday march nineteenth twenty twenty one a week that was anchored by the fed interest rate decision and policy statement and ensuing press conference by chairman. Jerome powell the markets did not do very much earlier in the week in anticipation of this and originally greeted powell's statement loose monetary statements. I should say with bullishness with some buying occurring. After the fed meeting on wednesday afternoon that reversed on thursday as yields shot up and stock markets were sold off pretty dramatically in some instances. The nasdaq fell three percent on thursday. And today friday things are kind of shifting around a little bit. We had some selling earlier and they have since come in. Nasdaq is now up for the day. And we're looking at losses but not very big losses for the major indexes for this week so a big week especially when it comes to fed policy. Lot of commentary around that. And i'm looking forward to what my colleagues have to say about it. I will introduce them now. I am joined by sticking alpha editors brad olsen. Vp of news. Kim khanh senior news editor. Stephen alpher managing editor of breaking news. And i'm your host and moderator nathaniel e baker senior editor of strategic contributors kim. Let's start with you. What was your take on. The events of the week ultimate another volatile week and we've had to deal with You know stocks kind of being dragged around by yields again. But i think it's also maybe seemed worse than it was because of thursday's sharp selloff. But now we've got nasdaq. Maybe looking at if it goes down for the week before out of last five that it's been lower but it's got it's started to gain some traction today as we were talking. Could actually you know. Maybe we gained more traction pull out a win just barely for the week. I think inflation has been on. Everyone's mind and not whether or not there is inflation. Think pretty much people are green. But there is if you looked at The philly fed that was out this week The prices paid index jumped to the highest level. It's ever been it's been since march one thousand nine hundred eighty though. There's definitely i mean. The prices received also spike sharply. So there's definitely inflation being seen this inflation in the pipeline data on now. The question is whether it's good or bad inflation and a lot of times you know. Everyone's like okay rates are out in. The market's gonna sell off but you've had good years where rates have been going going up a bit because of growth in. The market's gone along with it so there's been a i think a lot of debate about that and also we're kind of seeing maybe some more evidence of rotation which is not necessarily rate striven just people just still taking are looking at growth and looking for these reopening stocks cyclical stocks and Selling some of the bigger tech names to buy those stocks. And that's going to have an outsized impact on the indexes. Yeah and i guess. The question is also whether the inflation that we're seeing is transitory to bar the feds term which basically apparently means they can just ignore it. Or if it's something a little bit more permanent which might get them to start tapering brad. What's your take. Who are the winners and losers. Definitely this week was a cyclical rally. You saw airlines takeoff literally Partially on the tsa data that we saw travelers start to move around the country. A little bit more aggressively young american airlines alaska air united airlines all up about double digits. Interestingly enough the thing. Sanford bernstein even called out some of the value names or more traditionally cyclical names as screening or momentum. So that's one of the first time i've ever happened or as happens in two thousand sixteen where the value names are now technically momentum names of this upswell of of equity interests that we've seen over the past couple weeks really pick up steam and so that that that involves autos materials energy etc over the past few weeks. Although this week energy was clearly a loser on that steep drop off that we saw an oil the admit marathon oil achy. Wheelock smell the trillium. They took it on the chin Crude i think it had its worst day since september Earlier this week so outside of the energy names. They're the sickles. Were still a big winner. Obviously i think you've powell tried to assuage your concerns about how aggressive the fed was going to be I think just he just issued another editorial earlier today discussing you know trying to reassure the markets. Hey the dove even though quite a few of the members did express an interest in in raising rates before twenty twenty three a still a minority of them obviously
Philadelphia health official addresses fertility questions and concerns with the COVID-19 vaccine
"Despite claims circulating on social media, there's no evidence that approved covert 19 vaccines cause fertility loss. Although clinical trials did not study the issue, loss of fertility has not been reported among thousands of trial participants nor confirmed as an adverse event among millions you have been vaccinated. In fact, some of the vaccine trial participants got pregnant. In early February, Reproductive Medicine groups released a statement assuring patients that there's no evidence that the approved Cove in 19 vaccines can impact the capacity to conceive Children. Quote, loss of fertility is scientifically unlikely. Another document prepared by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine in December said there was no reason to delay pregnancy attempts because of being vaccinated since the vex Scene is not a live virus. Multiple false claims tying the Fizer by on tech and modern vaccines with infertility have been in circulation both in English and Spanish for months. Scientists have already debunked a false rumor that baseless. Lee claimed the vaccines could train the body to attack a protein vital for the formation of the placenta. Dr. Paul, often a pediatrician and vaccine expert at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, said people shouldn't be worried about covert 19 vaccines causing infertility. He said. It is very hard for a vaccine to do something that natural infection doesn't do. And fertility loss has not been reported. Even after roughly 67 million people in the U. S have been infected with SARS cov too. And that's my fact check for this week. I'm Lori Robertson, managing editor of Fact,

Attempt to make a buck out. I had a paper for rocks herald. That was back in grade six. Which one thousand. Nine hundred eighty. I was fifty one years old. So the summer of the year of eighty slash eighty one. That school year mcglade. Six year. I had a paper route and so thin fax from august until the next september. It was a morning paper and it was too hard There's no other way saying it was because if there is really get a blizzard five in the morning you have to deliver the papers. And i'd walk around with his bag papers so in the summertime when the sun was shining the birds chirping even as ten year old. There's a neat way to start my day. It was very peaceful tranquil. But i remember like literally getting up on school mornings at five in the morning and walking in snow up to my hips and delivering paper. Vapors very unsafe by today's standards. I would never let my ten year. Old son go into a blizzard But i thought. I found it too hard. I just i mean. There's i'd love to tell you that there was a great reason why i didn't do it anymore. But it was just too damn heart. So i stopped doing it. That was my very first job. Will you and i are speaking before we started recording and mentioning sackville drive. I lived on sackville drive. And i did. I delivered the daily news in grade. Six until i got fired because it was too. I was throwing the papers away thinking. Nobody is reading these things. Why my expert small world. My dad was the managing editor of the daily. So i i remember you buy. You can't my house and sat at the kitchen. Table is like okay brian. Maybe this is not for you. Okay sir funny too funny my goodness so you receive in paper routes calm and i think it's good for people to hear people who have children. I mean as you rightly said some jobs are probably not as safe as what we thought they were back then so we may consider something else but having our kids If there's a kid who listens to this is there's nothing wrong with good getting out there and working whether it's a lemonade. Stand or delivering something. Nowadays there might be a new way to deliver or do something with social media or something just as a kid but what. What did you start to do as you got older. Maybe in middle school and high school in terms of work i Good question. I in grade. Eleven job at ben's bakery on pepper street in halifax those another hard job. I was on. So i go to school monday to friday. And then on saturday and sunday. I'd have to get up at seven in the morning. Said no sleeping in during the school year to be at work at eight thirty to work eight thirty to four thirty benz bakery and cleaning the ovens and all the baking equipment. That get just filthy during the week and i did that for most of the great By the grace of god by the grace of god a broken ankle a gym class. Linda playing basketball and so i had to take time off work and again this happened. Today it'd be probably a workplace violation but back then. It was just more sophisticated time when they said they said to be. Okay at louis. You broke your ankle even offer two months. We hired somebody your place. Don't come back. They never stayed. You're fired the job. distortive evaporate. This is thirty five years ago. I hold no no grievance grudge against benz. It was just. It was just the way it was and i was so relieved because they didn't know how to quit the job. It was so hard my parents probably like the fact is working. But i was. I remember in february. I be like oh my god. I've i've been working and going to school for ninety one straight days because you go to school. Monday to friday cited sunday monday to friday i was exhausted and this went on and on and on so that was a tough
This startup is making customized sexual harassment training
"Is raising money. And i think this is a really cool company and i want you to tell us all about it. Athena raised money in june with two million round for anti harassment software that it would send to companies and companies basically. Install it for their employees. You'd get a nudge every month. Five minute training and it'd be kind of this idea of making a more flexible way of learning about how to deal with modern situations that might rise up better than the one hour lecture. This is a shift in its focus. Because before was doing kind of one thing and now it's doing a broader array of things when it raised in june was just doing anti harassment in zoom and slack world and now eight months later. It's another two million co led by the same firm. Gsp that let first round of it's and it's going into anything compliance related whether that's how to make sure you are not doing insider trading by mistake or or other bits like that and it's they leaned on big customers which was the impetus for this round including netflix's doom and send us and so for an early stage startup. Those are big names. They have twenty thousand active employees completing their monthly training which the co founder is a positive signal that it's at least getting engagement in some way. Are you currently caught up on your corporate training for verizon media group as managing editor one of my wonderful tasks at the company is to actually monitor our employees to make sure they follow all of the different trainings that they have to do. Because i am the one who gets. The e mails for a bunch of folks that says so and so is sixty days later on their annual compliance training. We will delete thirty male if they do not respond immediately. Did not know that was a state attorney question again dan. Natasha and i caught up on our vm. I think you're mostly caught up february's if you are not cut up would have been fired because most the recordings are due in december. So if you haven't done them you would be out nailed it tauscher. There's also some grows numbers and our notes here. Something like two hundred and fifty percent growth quarter over quarter. What is that metric tracking in the athena's since it was tracking basically the amount of people who are on the platform amount of learners. That are coming to athena. Obviously those big contracts and mentioned earlier help them be able to prove that like any startup. right now knock sharing revenue profitability et et cetera. They're just hoping to use this money to gain new customers and figure out that stuff. Later is spelled. E. t. h. e. n. a. Not of in ethene like it's like patina but it's not blockchain related. I usually ask founders for the story behind their name but recently i guess i have not been good enough to that curious enough about how that came together. I think the idea of little mini modules. Make sense. I mean some of the things i actually remember. From compliance training are like mini modules for instance detectors by verizon media and reisen media's owned by and say verizon because it has infrastructure works with government a lot and so in our corruption training which had to take. Oh yeah there's this great story of like you're working hard at work in the field and you have a city official with you. Can you offer them a bottle of water on a hot day. And i was like stir and there's like wrong committed bribery and corruption and a dig radiation to american society. You may not offer anything of value. Not even a penny. You can't offer free water bottle or kick cat.
Tips on buying a TV for the Super Bowl
"This is the best time of the year for me. Because it's almost time for the super bowl and my team the kansas city chiefs trying to go back to back and defeat. Tom brady and the tampa bay buccaneers to get their second straight super bowl title as washington. Football team fan. I am in misery right now because we haven't been to a super bowl since i don't know forever but anyway it's also a great time of year to shop for tv. Traditionally the days leading up to the super bowl come just behind black friday and holiday sales of the most tv purchases across the us. That's right it's. It's a good time to upgrade your tv or display and for some more insights. Were lucky enough to have our colleague ryan. Who is the managing editor for electronics. Reviewed. hey ryan thanks for being with us. Thought you might have some advice to share with shoppers. Who might be thinking about getting a new. Tv with the big game coming up this weekend. Hey guys So fun to be here. I am very upset because you're a cheese fan. And i'm a broncos fan and I am now looking down. The spiral of losses for maybe. I don't know the rest of our football lives. Because patrick mahomes is probably gonna pay for twenty years. But that's not what we're here to talk about. I suppose we should talk about it if we might even lose breath you daren't chiefs fans anyway. It is a great time to buy a tv. There are few great times in the year. But why this is such a great time to buy a tv is because there are really good deals as these new. Tv's are coming out. They are trying to get these quote unquote old. Tv's off of shelves or out of their internet stockpiles so they are wheeling and dealing. Somebody's tv's and another good thing about why now is a great time. Particularly after twenty twenty is a lot of the. Tv's in two thousand twenty some of those new features that people look for future-proof tv like two point one hdmi of variable refresh rates for gaming. So you're actually getting a lot of the complete package in a tv. That is you know has an older year date but that really doesn't matter. It's like buying a car at the end of the year. Or you know in january if you can get on the shelves. You're going to get a really good deal on it so one of the biggest questions. It always comes up when you're buying a tv is how big do you go. What advice do you give consumers who are trying to figure out the right size. Tv to buy all the advice. I usually give consumers is if you think it's probably a little too big then you are probably right on the money because i have never talked to somebody who bought you know a fifty five or sixty five inch tv And then we're really upset. About how big. The picture looks and especially now when you can't go to a movie theater. People are loving these bigger screens now. Of course there's an aesthetic. You know thing to balance here whether or not. It's just gonna look too darn big for your living room but other than that again. You're not gonna be upset by having a bigger brighter picture. That's a that's a good answer. That's what i always tell my friends and my wife. Also if you're going to buy a tv don't short out. Can i mean if you can afford. It gets to the point. How much should people spend. I've done a little research on this. And the average person spends under four hundred dollars on the tv. I would like to spend a little bit more when i buy my next one. What would you recommend people. The average person spend ryan. Well you know it really does depend on what you're looking for but again if you're looking for that big punch you don't have to spend a crazy amount of because there are so many new technologies and some really up and coming companies. A lot of people have probably heard about. Tcl's six series tv by now. If you're shopping at all it is sort of the quintessential roku tv that people love to get it. Packs a bunch of performance punch into a very nice price point however if you are looking to get something even bigger and you look into say around that lower price point around four hundred but you know maybe you can go a little bit higher you can get. Tcl's four series which is not quite as good performance wise but it is going to opera four k. It is going to offer hdr which is going to give you that brightness and a wider color gamut and it's going to pop a little bit more and you can get a seventy five inch model of that right now For instance on best buy for six hundred and thirty bucks. Six hundred thirty dollars i mean. Can you imagine we've been around a while. You imagine getting tv that size for like anything less than three grand even five years ago. I'm not. I'm not gonna do the math exactly but it's it's pretty wild. How low it's gotten. It really is incredible And you mentioned best buy. There's an unfortunately in the world. Tv buying we've lost a lot of local tv shops or audio video shops So a lot of people do their buying online. But as we're getting close to the game it seems like you may want to think about going local at this point right. Well you could. I you know i think that is a great point. It'd probably depends on how close you are to a prime shipper if you're going to do it from amazon but one thing to do and i did this recently with a different product purchase. Is you can shop on best buy and then order it to pick up in store. They'll usually do curbside avoids the pandemic issue they can. They will bring it right out to your car and slap it in the back and then you're good to go so i think that's if you're looking to stop right now right before the game. That's probably your best way to go ryan. Thanks again for being with us and for the listeners. Out there working. They find out more info on buying a tv for the super bowl. Yeah we've got Reviews on many of these. Tv's on review dot com. You can also check out our best of tv list and sliver other best of that have Show all the great deals and compare all these. You can kind of you know you. You do your shopping right from home and then hopefully get it right before the

The latest On The Indonesian Plane Crash
"Boxes from a passenger plane that crashed into the sea soon after takeoff in indonesia on saturday have now been located authorities. A confident that they will be able to retrieve the two flight. Recorders the boeing seven three seven was carrying sixty two people when it vanished from radar on its journey borneo. We'll get the latest now with greg. Waldron who is age managing editor a flight global. Greg joins us now on the line from singapore greg. What is the latest information we have about this plane well. Currently sauvage operations are still underway located the wreck of the aircraft and they continue to pull up debris from the aircraft. They put up. A part of an engine has well. I think that happened last night. So they really. The aircraft appears to be fairly shallow water and they know exactly where it is so retrieving the flight data recorder and the cockpit. Voice recorder. Shouldn't be that much of an issue. I would expect that news maybe today or perhaps this week we'll see that'd been reports from fishermen on the ground that they heard a big impact there was a big wave and so on. Do we get the impression that the flights broke up in the sky or on impact wants too early to speculate on. I saw a report quoting an official in indonesia's saying that they believed the aircraft may have been intact when it hit the water. But it's really too soon to say what the condition of the aircraft was when it came down they'll have to be released thorough investigation to determine exactly what happens probably too soon to say exactly what happened. But i'd imagine that if you in the water into the senate he'd certainly here's something because it's quite a big aircraft just to be clear. This was not a mocks. A budding max. Certainly not though. The aircraft that crashed was a seven three seven. Five hundred was about twenty. Three years old formerly served with the united airlines. And it's very different aircraft from the max. Max is a much later updated version of the seven. Three seven two generations later in fact so technologically. It's quite a different aircraft but for boeing. Which of course is suffering all of these problems over the max. It's just not good news. Well certainly not going said a challenging few years with the max. Of course one of the max. Crashes happened in indonesia was a lion that was operating it but you know again Every crash is unique in. Its own way. They'll have to be a detailed investigation into why this specific crash occurred You know these things happen in boeing will be participating in the investigation will be the airline indonesian authorities.

Why is that. What certainly had a challenging twenty years and flight safety you major crisis you have the crash the other day you had a. Qc eighty five one. The asia crashing twenty fourteen. And you've also had of course the liner max crash in twenty eight t know. We talked about earlier on. But i would say that the challenge with no nesia is. They have made some progress in improving safety. But i think there's still some cultural issues. They really need to create a culture of safety within the airlines where you know procedures are followed very closely where you know rules are followed very closely and there's no corners cut. Now it'll be. I think very helpful greg. Thank you very much indeed. That's quick waldron from flight.
Pro-Trump Mob Storms US Capitol
"You've seen the video. You have heard the audio. The united states capitol building has been occupied by supporters of president. Trump's spurred on by months of his lies about election fraud. We're gonna talk about the economics of american politics right now. After last night in georgia democrats control the senate and with it.

Hey wild wild wild today so super quickly since. This is a very gut an emotional day. What's your gut right now. You know it's it's been shocking to to watch all of this but also sadly it's not surprising we've been all wondering for months really for the last four years whether something like this might happen and now. it did. Two weeks before inauguration It's just it's surreal to to be on capitol hill listening to sirens for hours and hours and then to to to just watch the capitol building. I walk those halls many thousands of times and it was always struck by how intense security tends to be And how intense security was the summer when there were other protests around dc so to see this happen.

Your top 2020 questions: "How do I unmute?"
"Our series on the most asked questions of the year. Michelle multi who is the managing editor for consumer tech at usa. Today is here with me and we're going to have some fun with easily hands down. The most asked question the year which is hey. How do i mute myself on zoom right michelle. I think that's the phrase of two thousand twenty year muted. Yes and just give me a second. Give me a second. i'll get there. It's not a hard thing. Why was it so hard for so many people. Do you think you know you forget the conversations that you have. You don't really have a button before you need to speak And i think the flip side is forget to themselves. I was in a meeting recently with a heavy typer. And i believe this heavy type or thought. He was on mute Thank goodness that's all we heard. It could have been so much worse but but it's unnatural for for folks to keep muting themselves when they're when they're typically used to just speaking. The good news is once you figure it out. You're able to do other things while you're in the meeting because they're not hearing you. Yes so it's so it's a very important thing to learn. Jefferson one of the things that i have mastered. Now that i am and i probably shouldn't tell my secrets but now that i'm home schooling my kids and in meetings at the same time i've mastered the art of the mute and hand before your mouth screaming kids and nobody notices but you gotta make sure that mute button is working And for all those people who've had a hard time is all you gotta do bottom of the screen audio. Click the button butte on mute. It's not hard. Just but you know. I would always recommend for anybody who does have trouble with zoom or the other video meetings before you have the meeting like an hour ahead of time two hours the day before. Figure it out play with the program. Click all the buttons figure out where everything is. It'll be much more relaxing for you to go through the process then in the heat of the moment when you know you have this big meeting coming up absolutely absolutely attest run is a key thing and if by chance you're accustomed to one program and you're doing an interview or a program in another again like jefferson said. Give it a test run. Don't assume you know zoom versus google meat versus webex. The most asked question of the year hardaway on mute.

She goes to orientation today and she says tweet who is taking bets on how long it would take for someone can before someone confused me. For a staffer. If you pick the very first moment of orientation, Congratulations, you win. I responded to I said, I want to know every detail of the moment Somebody went up to a member of Congress is like Hey, who do you work for? I felt that deep in my bones like the time at pull it infest When somebody asked me if I was one of the high school volunteers like you're very, very close. I'm the editor of this organization. Yeah, well, I'd like thing, though, is as demeaning is that might have been too Sarah. She got to respond by telling them that she, in fact, was a member of Congress. So it As it's a bad thing, But then she gets to the joy I imagine off of making somebody shrivel into a That's why in real life detail. That's the moment I want. I don't want to hear the initial confusion. I want the deep awkwardness of the moment. Alex. I guess what I should say it's somewhere else.

"And managing editor Sarah Livvie hello how are you Sarah also doing fine I'm coming at you from ocean beach which has been a little bit stinky recently I was trying to get my kids to help me come up with descriptors of what it smells like for use on the television and my son came up with bat barf which I think is probably the winner so far that's good yeah I never got the coronavirus tie in yeah exactly that was one of your first big stories as an editor had voices and it really well yeah that's right the lawyer stench yeah yeah so does our our mackenzie Elmer environment pushy when it found out that the algal bloom which creates the beautiful bioluminescence at night that that have died often is decomposing and that is what's causing the smell so it smells great in golden hill it's not a problem I haven't haven't haven't caught up with a great show this week we've got councilman Chris Cate coming in to sit to talk about how the city is grappling with the money they got for Kobe to relief and what they can and cannot spend it on and remember SDSU west two years ago Senegal voters said the city should sell that'll mission valley stadium land to SDSU there at the beginning of the end of that entire redevelopment I think we will explain exactly where that deal stands and speaking of money smaller cities really wanted some of them don't qualify for federal money so they're looking to the county for help and we're talking about re opening so in my opinion we have to talk about schools we're gonna banter about that a little bit so first up this SDSU west issue let's just explain they they have to actually make this deal and the city is really interested at this moment in getting that deal done for two reasons one they want the money and to they want to not lose money and that that all comes because they have to spend about a million dollars a month to maintain and operate Qualcomm or the former Qualcomm stadium as the S. SDCCU stadium and they have to and and they don't want to do that and that budget for next year has to be finalized for in July and they want the money from the actual sale of the land to come in and so when you do the the scheduling backwards from July they come to may nineteenth is the day that the city council needs to go ahead and give final approval to the purchase and sale agreement which means right now there's some fighting going on about the terms of that gigantic purchase and sale agreement which is finally made public this week yeah I think it was kind of steadily marching in the background towards this point and from what I could tell there wasn't a lot of outward appearances that things were going wrong I admit I haven't been following this too closely so maybe it was already clear behind the scenes that things were ugly but it really erupted last week first win Mar Elliott issued a memo outlining considerable problems she saw in the purchase and sale agreement that the university had put together and it was it was very her memo didn't just highlight problems with that purchase and sale agreement but pretty specifically described the university itself as not negotiating in good faith and not holding to certain time lines and being needing to be dragged kicking and screaming to the point that they were at it's important to clarify there's actually like three or maybe even for parties to this situation there is now that the university which is pretty United with the CSU system then there's the city which is led by Christmas sell the chief operating officer on behalf of mayor Kevin Faulconer and then there's the city attorney which is as we all know independent office and that's who brought up these concerns you're talking about city attorney Mara Elliott and then there's the fourth party which is the city council so the city has three four or three different major entities discussing this and the university has one and is kind of playing them off each other yeah that was my take was soaked so after Marley it's memo last last week really disrupted things I spoke to Jack McGrory for the politics report who had some very explosive quotes about the process with the city and specifically by three thirty Mar Elliott's disposition towards getting the deal done let's explain who he is real quick yes a gun zero he's a former city manager of the city of San Diego went on to become a developer and and successful business guy and now is a member of the CSU board of trustees and was obviously one of the architects behind this entire initiative to to get it passed so you know a big player on SDSU's team and he was yeah he basically said you know she hated this deal for a long time she's just trying to scuttle it yeah and I think to your point about playing entities off each other really decided rather than respond point by point to the issues that L. it raised in the memo he was just going to get out of that ball game and instead put the issue into the laps of the city council and say Hey city council this is ultimately your decision you get to vote to approve this deal or not and it's time for you to decide whether you want to deal or you because we're done going point by point with with mark Elliott for all this time I don't know what you think about that Sir I don't know I have a hard time kinda wrapping my mind around this because I think we would be talking about it a lot differently if we weren't talking about a public university and that you know given the bad deals that the city has been locked into surrounding the stadium in the past you know a city attorney kind of going through with a fine tooth comb and flagging things would be seen as you know not just normal but like commendable so it just kind of underscores the strangeness of the situation we're in we're we're locked into selling to a a public university you know like Kevin Faulkner went to SDSU this isn't a party that's a private business and we'd be looking at it a lot differently I think if it were but that said I mean it is true that she's raised flags from the beginning with the entire scenario and I don't have a clear sense of you know how deep or new wants the point she's raising our well this is Graham for six so one of them you know that you met since he's been again Sir had trouble with the for us yet fully admits she still thinks measure G. was illegal that it it was forced the city to sell the land in a way that was illegal she's she tried to push that case to city council didn't go with her fine so now she's on to this discussion about the actual deal points there I do have an update they are actually point by point responding to her so what happened is after your story rand they went and met with the mayor and they said no attorneys allowed no city attorneys nor SDSU attorneys went there and they said here's our answer and let's figure some of these points out as he made and then she came out with these fourteen points most of her points are some version of we're selling the stadium to you we want to sell it as is and we don't want to you know get some lawsuit from you in the future or this says you're gonna have to pay prevailing wages we don't want them to ever sue the city if you don't and if you only let university groups use the river park you know in a priority for us and we don't wanna get sued if somebody says that's illegal for city property those kinds of things are buried into these fourteen points and my understanding is that the the university is now going to respond in a written sort of memo not change their PSA but a memo sort of put in context on all those points there's another interesting point that she brought up she said that you know normally for affordable housing sis the S. issues agreed to put ten percent of the four thousand six hundred housing units aside as affordable housing units and not pay the a movie they were gonna actually build them but they want to manage them through the CSU system as they do for other affordable housing units across the state and L. it made the point that maybe that housing commission should do that for the city instead as as all the things done here are so there's little things like that that are actually a big deal to those agencies but you know are they gonna hold up the entire sale I don't know yeah they're all they're all fine points right like like like I don't mean fine as in there perfectly acceptable I mean they're fine Lee grained deal points they're probably not overwhelmingly points that will sway you from one side or the other to thinking this is a good or bad deal or good or bad use of that land I think for most people I don't know if that's fair yeah and I think this is where the the sides being played out themselves really comes in the city led by the city staff as opposed to the city attorney really wants this deal done like they do and they want the money in the bank and they want to not pay for the stadium anymore in fact one of the deal points it's kind of concerning for the city attorney is that they want if this can't get close by July they want city or state to renegotiate a better lease for the city where they pay more for the city to operate that stadium and so it you know that the basically I think that somebody does does transition to like okay is this a political risk and with we're taking is this a deal I'm I want to do with all these things that my lawyer has told me I may need to worry about and and you know to this extent like everybody's kind of playing their role at that point then the mayor is trying to negotiate a good deal the city attorney bringing up things to worry about in the city council's then gonna decide ultimately you know whether it's something to sign off on yeah I think that's a good way to put it is that like what more Elliott is doing in that respect is is totally appropriate but also it would be totally appropriate for the city council to say we hear you thank you for being a good lawyer you've informed us and now it's our time turn to make a decision so speaking of of the crisis that this S. yes you in the CSU system gonna smoke good deal it seems like on financing because of what's happening they were able to borrow a lot of money at about at two point nine percent interest here's the deal they they also revealed a lot of how the economics are going to work for this initial effort to prepare the land and to build the stadium so there's going to be two giant of like financing efforts one is three hundred and fifty million dollars and that is to prepare the land to buy the land from the city to prepare the.

little piggy okay so you're saying something he wouldn't do just by happenstance link link all right a also today representative from michigan founding member of the freedom caucus and frequent trump critic justin a mash announced his independence on july fourth that is he wrote an op ed in the washington post the he's leaving the republican party to become an independent citing partisan politics as they quote existential threat to american principles and institutions so we're gonna discuss whether his defections says anything about the broader political climate end will evaluate the state of the never trump movement in general will get to all of that later in the show but let's begin with joe biden so first off i want everyone to kind of lay out their positions before we delve deeper into the debate so clear what start with you is biden still the front runner i would say yes biden is still the front runner but it's a soft bleed the polls don't tell us anything other than that but i'd say the races there's a lot more fluid alright mica i'm gonna say no not no real meaningful way ooh okay end in like two sentences why is he not the front runner i think we learned that one much much of his support what sort of salt support an to his level of support in the polls has gone down hasn't gone down a huge amount but he has kind of cross the a critical threshold at least historically from a polling support where you sort of have at least about a fifty fifty shot to win the nomination to there's an inflection point where you become an underdog a relative to the field and i think now he's clearly an underdog relative to the field so historically somebody with an eleven point we'd over the next person in the pack for example doesn't go on to win the nomination the majority of the time or even half the time so like historically this is all based on some analysis nate has done but like historically a wellknown canada polling in let's say the mid thirties high thirties has anywhere from fifty to seventy five percent chance of winning the nomination okay that canada polling in the let's say twenty thirties has anywhere from like at ten percent chance to a forty five percent you man my short answer is pretty yeah the follow up question yeah although i mean he came out with a pretty bold position so i couldn't let him get away with calling biden not the phone i thought we were gonna go around and come back all right perry what do you have for us is joe biden still the front runner i think unequivocal yes and others harry lake shore exactly why one is just be obvious he leaves the national polls also he leaves the polls and early states iowa new hampshire it's not gonna be leads all the early he pulled in the early stay poll do matter in second if you look at the polls even the pull the show a closer race and when you ask democrats who do you view is most likely to be trump biden is like gets half fifty percent or something like that he's like electability she is a big issue in this primary maybe people forgot about it for a minute but i think it's gonna come back and be a huge threat i think he's got a big advantage electability i think that's an during factor in this primary what we're saying is that you're you're being seduced boost by the crusting waves in the news cycle i think that there's certainly a danger in that and i do think it's good news for biden that he seems to have dropped so i saw one average edge that had him basically going from thirty percent in an average of polls twentyfive percent in an average of polls that's a five point drop at certainly better than a ten point drop or or fifteen point drop which which some polls hat but look it's not just that his polling has dropped i think it's why it's dropped in it how it's dropped you know i think we saw in those debates abide in that didn't seem all that electable yeah so what i'll say since i didn't get to give my long answer is that i think the worst seat like my constant refrain which i should probably get printed on a t shirt is it's probably too early the debate obviously had in effect for biden and i think that his campaign has been doing some cleanup work afterwards you saw him over the weekend basically apologize for the segregation is comments what two weeks after the fact i think that had a lot to do with the fact that he got pummeled in the debate and it didn't it didn't go well but i think that we've you've seen okay since january which is basically when this presidential campaign kicked off over seven months into this we've seen so many like story flavors of the month and i'm not saying that this is a flavor of the month thing i think this is like a fundamental thing about biden campaign they that is a weakness but i'm not prepared to say that he's not the front runner because i think it has to play out in real life for a few weeks just see what that's like so i'm interested in the end of august when that second debate rolls around and he gets stage likely more prepared than he was the first debate i'm kind of curious to see what the polling on biden is who's may be cornering black support if it's if it's sort fledged away from from by more and more but i just i just feel like it's it's too early to say i think again to go back to lease often but i think he's still the leader so make a trigger point about him appearing on stage as not necessarily electable that polling that perry referred to as half of democratic primary voters saying that they saw him as the most electable i think it was from nbc washington post poll that showed that forty five percent of democratic primary voters after the debate so after all of that went down still thought of him as v most likely to win in a general election the next person in line was bernie sanders with only eighteen percent saying he was the most likely that forty five percent of democrats say biden is the most electable even post debate i just think those are soft numbers i think that people think of white men as more electable i think once hey people see and you're already start to see some of this once eight people see harris and warren these other canada it looking better then biden onstage into like once actually some of these other can win some states i think those electability numbers will book chasing here's the question do you think biden warren harris and sanders you're all in the same stage how that affects biden i don't think that biden presentation of voters is actually all that dependent on who's on stage with him i mean i'm to me i'm i'm really interested to see biden in warren onstage together given their history war and sort of now famously or only famously in if you like called biden out for his you know she she wanted a certain kind of bankruptcy bill way back in the early two thousands and biden was against it and she said you know joe biden says he's pro woman but he's you know he's really screwing women over so she's been pretty harsh for a long time about joe biden in particular and i'm kind of curious to see whether or not she goes after i'm like that on stage and that has an effect or if again to go back to be the double bind the women find the in the presidential race if that comes off as to a tacky well let me let me sort of why am i going samantha i biden i went into this campaign thinking that biden's rickard would be out of step with the energy and the democratic party forty but that biden himself in his campaign wouldn't feel that out of step this kind of what happened with clinton in twenty sixteen where sure there is a lot of energy on the left but clinton was briley liberal herself ran a liberal you know on a liberal platform i've been really surprised by one the extent to which by then even contemporary comments like biden on the trail has felt out of step with not only where the energy is in democratic party but the democratic party writ large like i i mean i know i guess i know what you're saying but it's also like not all voters are into the new ideas they're being put forth in the democratic party a lot of them are but biden is you know he's carving out his own moderate lane in that and he figures he's got like an unobstructed view that yeah perry do you see him as out of step with voters are maybe just out of step with the people who are running for president in twenty twenty m first of all i think he used the phrase gangbangers either day they're just moments where he's out of step with how everyone talks he was not particularly good in the debate he doesn't have a lot of interesting policy ideas either but i don't see this is about joe biden i don't see us candidacies joe biden was not known is a particularly centrist person before this campaign i think he's his campaign is just been like older the opening in the center let's take it and that makes sense but i don't think he's i'd allegedly set in the center in that way but i think he's began is is not the debate and anything else with joe biden is a man who is not a socialist and that is all the that's what his campaign is about he can't say every day i'm a man who's not a socialist socialist but that is what his voters are looking for i think his entire tennessee is about only i can win i don't agree with this view the women can't win but enough democratic voters i talked to believe it to where i'm sure joe biden staff is fully aware of this so i think he's kind of running out the clock i'm not surprised he's doing poorly things did anybody watch the campaign he was good at the i think he's gonna debates in the beginning of this process i'm not surprised harris in warren are better than him a debate that's not that's what i expected on some level am but i still think as long as his main competition is to women in a socialist he's going to get a lot of electability because harry see i'm not surprised by that either but i am surprised by that first point you made which is biden bite in this kind of run out the clock strategy the bind campaign has mostly been kind of reactive so far that is surprising to me is all well and good if you're pulling at you know thirty five percent or forty or forty five percent but not if you're pulling out like twentyfive percent twenty percent i don't think that works 'em i think in i just make the make a counterpoint of sorts the coalition biden has even if it's like not strong it's moderates it's white people college degrees it's african americans is people over forty five i liked that coalition if i'm biden in part because of the other candidates except for the.

B. on again the title I love you know die now this next story is gonna be very tricky for me here is why I watch the view almost every day I love the view I know I'm not supposed to but I've watched it from the very beginning and I enjoy it but there's an entanglement with honor that I I cannot say are you allowed to tell Alexander what the entanglements they'll brings up that I was at the view once auditioning right when awful yeah and I am a little touchy about it yeah and he insists on trying to change knowing about it many wants to know why he thought I didn't do I did and I thought he did a great job I thought I did a great job I didn't and he insists on bringing it up I've known this man how long ago there go the view five years ago six years ago actually five and a half years ago in the summer right and you still I just want to make me smile yeah I know all right so we have I I bring that up because there's addition again there's a chance it may be brought back in the re thinking their moves because one of the members of the view may be leaving soon what can you tell us now there's a lot of back and forth with this as there always is on these sort of things because of course from the daily beast earlier on this week that apparently reportedly making McCain is tired of being on the view she's feeling like a quote and this wasn't what she said is what somebody one of their sourcing said feeling like a caged animal you and wants to leave she wants to get out of there it's just not working for any more now our reporter clear so weird actually contacted the view and got our own quote on it that ABC said no we fully expect everybody will be back for the next season of the year but as you guys probably know what these things any of these things could be true could be salary negotiations on making the cans card it could be sources you don't like or making things out of the daily beast is usually very trustworthy with these sort of things I don't have to see what happens on this one but certainly bigger McCain is in quiet for viewership on the view right now as well as just people writing and talking about her so I would expect if they can get her back will want to get her back I say it's very hard to be the voice of the right wing on the view because they they they can't it in such a way that it's usually it's three on one or four on one and it's it's not the easiest job in the world has to be exhausting it must be right she I would say on the flip side of things he is doing this for an hour an hour and a half weeks however long with you is yeah there is for a lot of money and that's what your job as a and I do you think about to pull back the curtain too much but it certainly right about that you almost every day your current decider I've got used to the idea that I think there's a little bit of acting going on there right you know they do you there okay with each other behind the scenes and put up a little bit for an hour you put on your stage voice you get angry about things yell back for instance you know what that's what it is but on the flip side like you were saying it's hard not to internalize these things sometimes and if the entire world is right around you and saying how could you be so stupid to say acts why did you say yes and just picking out constantly that becomes a chore as well as a taste of that once and once was enough for me were you one of you want to know that sun gonna did you just sort of fingered that's not a bad once because it was I what is she saying children in the United States will suffer and what I thought impossible now I let one of the things I like most about the show is the fact that they put people on a different opinions and many times they are duking it out I know you said she and some of the others most notably Troy bay are in sunny hasta and are okay off the air Alex but I don't think they like each other I get no feeling at all that they like or respect the children whatsoever and I'm okay with that I mean you don't listen so does I love all of my coworkers here they're also tastic but sometimes you don't like your co workers but you go with your job anyway right okay very very true right help us with something we discussed before you had on we lost already Johnson over the last couple days already a mainstay on the old rona Martin's laugh and I was trying to get for the point that is cutting edges that show was in the nineteen sixties when you watch clips of it now and there's a retrospect running right now on Netflix it just doesn't hold up do you agree with that or disagree with that yeah you just one of those things was very much of its time and certainly you can look at it in the span of comedy history and say well here's what was placed here's how large these careers here is how it further develop their careers but jokes aren't necessarily at the forefront of comedy right now yeah if anything we have anti humor we have things are working against jokes or it's more situational or more character based so that's something where people just come out and say jokes and that's it is not necessarily to return but it has its place and it was very important for the history of companies like I said I don't think you have certain at live if you don't have rona Martin's laugh in and and Lorne Michaels got his starters American start anyway I'm laughing as a writer so the the roots are pretty obvious maybe you just dislike documentary maybe although I've watch other episodes standalone episodes in the past and they just leave me so cold

"Sam confederate statue at North Carolina's flagship public university UNC Chapel Hill is still unfolding overnight. The pedestal that used to hold the statue was removed from campus and UNC chancellor Carol fulled announced her retirement this coming spring moves which caught the university board of governors by surprise. Dave duet, managing editor at WNYC enduro, Dave nice to speak with you. Hi, robyn. And remember that silence him who replaces you know, who represents all confederate soldiers had been in place in nineteen thirteen when the United daughters of the confederacy put the statue up in the gym CRA. It was toppled by protesters last August its base and some plaques were there. So just talk about why this removal was so sudden one in the morning. Yeah. Caught everybody by surprise about five o'clock last night. Carol Foltz out a message saying that she was going to resign chancellor at the end of the academic year. And then also that silence, SAM's, pedestal and the other plaques where they're going to be removed at that time. She didn't say when that was going to happen. There is a bit of a celebrate celebration. Then at say seven o'clock last night. There are some people around there about a couple dozen students and activists and then at one o'clock or so in the morning came the big trucks and the crane and they picked up the pedestal the monuments or what was left of the monument and took it away. Some nobody knows really where went and nobody knows really where silence is at this point. But it was a quick end to that. And it had been going on for as, you know, several months interesting because she maybe the school was concerned that there would be some sort of violent reaction to this. But it also could have been an opportunity some sort of a ritualistic opportunity to have people involved in the removal, but as to her announcing her retirement, she said that. Statue removal had nothing to do with each other. Let's listen, I really have not wanted my job status to be part of my decision making about the monument, and it has not been I have not used it in that way. That's not how I thought about it. I try to do the right thing regardless of that affect on my job situation. But the chair of the board of governors said the remove electrons Parenti than meeting to talk about this do people think that the two had nothing to do with each other. Yes. Even careful at the in that same press conference said I know that might be hard to believe that they're not linked, and it really is hard to believe. Because in the notice she sent out she linked them together in the same announcement. She said that she was leaving. And then the next thing she said is the silent Sam pedestal being removed, and because of how quickly it happened last night, the board of governors met, and she sent out her notice while that meeting was still taking place. So they were not only caught off guard, but they're a little bit angry today. So there's a lot of speculation about what comes next. With her retirement. Maybe the next chancellor route should have made the decision about the the base there. But there's been a strict law and play since two thousand fifteen the prohibits the alteration or removal of objects of remembrance except in narrow circumstances. So that has to be considered also silent Sam he's in pieces somewhere. She had originally wanted to build an astore structure museum around the smashed portion that was vetoed. Just in the thirty seconds. We have what happens now to these pieces. Well, these pieces that you said if you think of sort of the raiders of the lost ark that last scene where they're just taking away to some sort of deep cavern somewhere. Nobody knows where they are. They are somewhere on campus. That's all she said, what could happen is this law could get challenged and it could get put right back up. Dave DeWitt, managing editor WNYC. And we'll talk to you. If that happens. Thank you..

How did you end up as as the Washington Post first black female reporter? Well, I was interviewed at Columbia upon. Time for graduation. And the person who interviewed me been Gilbert told me that he was interested in me. But I just did not have any daily newspaper experience. So I should go out to some smaller newspapers. And but keep in touch and then in the letter he wrote he said if you happen to be in Washington, just stop buying meat are managing editor. And I said, okay. And it was kind of letter that was not a turnoff that it was a clearly recognized that I needed some, you know, daily experience it turned out that I was going to Africa for the summer as part of a program called operation, crossroads Africa. And this was the summer after my graduation and all things we were having our orientation before our trip to Africa in Washington DC. So I call Mr.. Gilbert and said told him I was in town.

"At two Anthony mcculskey are managing editor put out on this. He notes that the secretary state democrat secretary state, Steve Simon estimates that there are roughly sixty thousand Minnesotans right now who have been released from prison, but are still ineligible develop because they are on probation or parole. So apparently there's a process in Minnesota where you eat after you get off probation parole. Maybe you could get your vote voting rights back, but he wants to give immediately get out of prison. You can vote on their some counties where they're trying to say you ought to be able to vote while you're in prison in some of the counties, the rural counties across the country where you've located a prison the prisoners in. That county would have the ability to vote on who gets to be the sheriff in that county, and might overwhelm the regular law abiding citizens who are outside the prison walls, told me totally crazy. But again, that's the modern Democratic Party. And what I find interesting about that back to the importance of all of these electioneering tactics by the Democrats, you may recall that in two thousand sixteen President Trump lost Minnesota, one of our seventeen battleground states to Hillary Clinton by forty four thousand votes, so fifty eight thousand more felons. Voting would swing Minnesota. If if just everything else stays the same. Everything else stays the same. And if if President Trump got forty five thousand more votes and was ahead by a thousand there'd be sixty thousand felons under this law who in Minnesota who could vote and they what. Almost all of them would vote democrat. Right. That's what the evidence is. And again, it is part of a of a scheme. It's not by accident. They're looking for ways to to improve the electoral process, again, the same folks that are opposing voter ID, for example, showing a photo ID when you go cast your vote to eliminate or to reduce voter fraud are the same ones coming up at these new ways to commit fraud with absentee ballots were nobody shows a photo ID of any kind. They send a ballot to your home and somebody fills it out in many cases, sometimes after the person who got the ballot is actually dead. So somebody fills it out fraudulently, and nobody gets prosecuted for these things if they would start prosecuting and putting people in jail for this kind of voter fraud, the actual provable voter fraud. Then you'd see it. Reduced people aren't willing to go to jail to cast an extra vote for Hillary Clinton or or for some other democrat. I think you would reduce it if you'd start putting people in jail for committing voter fraud. So what's interesting? There are two. States in the union where if you're convicted of a felony. You never lose your right to vote. I.
