Until Death: Raynella Leath
"As a child. Rinella grew up in a small community outside Knoxville Tennessee. Rinella was the second child. She had an older sister named flow. Anna and two younger siblings. Marcus and Robin her parents do e Annie met in college. They married after. Dewey had enlisted in the Army Air Corps. Any Finish College. Do we want a purple heart? And after the war he continued his education. So Anne worked as a schoolteacher and do he worked for the US Department of Energy so he made some good use at his time. Back in college had a masters degree in Chemistry and Physics and he was very invested in a safe storage of nuclear waste. Sounds like a smart guy. Yeah absolutely and Rinella grew up in this ideal environment. It was virtually crime free. And this was a town where she and her siblings could. Just hop on their bikes. Anytime go downtown. See a movie or use the Community Swimming Pool. It was kind of one of those pre planned communities for the nuclear power plant scientists. So the kids didn't even know what their parents position was at the company. But that's pretty much what it all revolved around but they were also religious rain. Ls saying in the choir of the Baptist Church and when she was in elementary school her classes were segregated but her high school actually became the first integrated school in the south in nineteen fifty five so at least in part because of the large population of these government scientists. Rinella schools were quite exceptional. The science were excellent of course and the children began learning a second language by the time they were in the second grade so it really gave her a lot of advantages in life her. She was always at the top of her class and was taking all the advanced courses she could. She's also in the marching band spinner weekends at Football Games drive INS and other activities common in the nineteen fifties. Yes he just watch American graffiti. That was kind of what it was like. Right right yeah. Drinking was less of a problem than in most communities because this county they lived in was completely dry. Yeah that's amazing how to combat alcohol. Well I mean if you really want the alcohol you could drive out of the county and get it sure but it's certainly made it harder on the kids in a lot of their parents didn't even have booze in the house which. I don't know about you but the first blues I had I snuck from my parents. Liquor cabinet will. It's where you get it right exactly and there's not just a dry county but a lot of lot of Baptist people and they don't look at alcohol. Is that interesting anyway now? I think it might be a no no for them completely. It certainly not encouraged note therefore remark so after high school. Rinella went to East Tennessee State University as a nursing student while they're Rinella got good grades in competed in rifle shooting. Yeah funny when you think about Ed. Just the way said that. I'm thinking here's a student right getting the grid. So but yeah. He's a marksman let's Tennessee. It's the south right and. I think there's you know more familiarity with guns in the south or is that just a a cliche. No I think that's probably true. Yeah we'll why she was there. This is when she met her. First husband. William Edward Dos it and he went by Ed but young ad had a very different childhood. He had many losses in his life. And I guess the most dramatic I would say was his mom's death. This happened on Easter morning. Nineteen fifty six when Little Edie was just eight years old and he woke up in the morning to find his mother on the floor beside his bed. Dead of a heart attack and just two months later. His Dad died from cancer. So Eddie was an orphan and he ended up moving in with his aunt. And uncle was kind of tough Lou eight-year-old cured get up in the morning and mom's dead on the floor. Can you imagine it's just? It's horrible so he had a much rougher upbringing then ray Nella dead but he was just a real go-getter and as a child. Everyone said he was exceptionally kind in high school. He played some football but he also worked on the school newspaper and he was a member of several clubs. Once he was in his senior year he was given the award for the Best School Spirit. Then he went to college on a football scholarship and he continued to date his high school sweetheart in his freshman year. Everyone thought these two would get married but then he met right now at college in broke up with the girlfriend not an unusual phenomenon. Guess so ED graduated with a business degree. He and Renault got married when she was a senior in college. Now the story I always liked Nell is mom. She didn't approve of that and she apparently knew how to hold a grudge. But she didn't speak to Ed for the first thirteen years of their marriage. Well that's serious grudge holding right. Guess so you really love my mother-in-law. She doesn't talk to me. But when you look at the big picture it kind of makes you think Did Rain Nella get some of that kind of personality from holding grudges or well at decided? He wanted to be a lawyer and he started taking classes at the University of Tennessee Law School in Nineteen Sixty nine ray. Nella began working as a nurse after she graduated in nineteen seventy two at graduated from law school. He had inherited his family's farm. Both of his parents were deceased so he would call himself a farmer and a country lawyer. But it's funny he always said I'm a farmer I and a lawyer second even though he would really end up being very successful as a lawyer did a good job. He had quite a career absolutely really popular as well. It worked in criminal defending people in need. Yeah he liked to help the poor people. Then in nineteen seventy eight. Renaudot gave birth to their first child. Maggie dice it and they then moved to the family farm. Young family lived in a mobile home on the property. As Ed built a new house they worked hard. He built the house entirely from lumber from his own trees. He had an architect who designed the home and he had a contractor friend who advised him on how to do things but basically he built this place. So that's pretty impressive to me. Sure is in nineteen eighty two. When a district attorney general retired decided to run for that job and the funny thing is once. He entered the election. His mother-in-law had a change of heart. Suddenly Ed was an okay guy. Who's now worthy of my attention right? Which really got crate? But she enjoyed this attention and she would be photographed with him at campaign events as much as possible. But Ed took it in stride you now. That's my mother-in-law. Whatever I'm going to be nice to. Everybody and Rinella was a good wife. She was working really hard to help them with this campaign. So it's not like they were on the outsor- anything. The marriage was really good for a long time. And when Ed Din win this election the family celebrated the local. Sheriff gave Ed a five shot. Pistol telling him now. He needed a gun to protect himself. Because he's putting away bad guys and they might come after him but that wasn't a gun guy then the next year at an Rinella had a son William Edward Dawson Junior. So now the family had big Edie and little Edie Ed had a secretary named K and she was married to a guy named Steve Walker and the two couples K. In Stephen Ed. Ray Noah were friendly and they did some socializing from time to time when K had a son who they named Kevin in nineteen eighty four. She left her position and ED's office and Henry now had a third child whose name Katie born in nineteen eighty five so rinella never visited the walkers but ed ended up spending a lot of time there and you might ask why they spent a Lotta time why. He spent a lot of time there because he was screwing k. Well I'm just thinking you know. Things must have been not perfect with he and Rinella by then if he's out having an affair her maybe he was just bored who knows but K. was very fond of him and that's part of the issue. A lot of people think K. Was really in love with Ed. But he wasn't going to leave rain Allah and we don't know if that's because it wouldn't look good if he was afraid of her. Maybe we don't know. But then in nineteen eighty AK had a second son who she and her husband named Kyle and although her husband Steve Did know about it until years later kyle was actually Ed's biological child the product of this affair kind of love child. We didn't know about birth control too. Well I'm sure there was some knowledge of it but who knows. Maybe she wanted to have a baby kinda nasty to pass it off as her husband. Well I don't know Dick. I almost think it's kind. Maybe you don't agree with me but I almost think it's kind of a kind decision. What good is it going to do their family now? They have two sons. What good is it if she tells her husband? The son is not biologically yours and maybe she didn't even know one hundred percent. That's a possibility but I mean I'm just one of these people. I think sometimes not most the time but sometimes holding back. A harsh truth can be an act of love controversial. But it's how I feel I'm GONNA leave it at that okay now. Nineteen Ninety right now retired from nursing and she concentrated on raising her children and managing the family farm. Dave Leaf was a nice man. Who's a friend of ED? And he had a pool. Nello take your children. Today's house to swim in the summer other than that. There was really no connection between Renault and Dave while they were very different people. I mean she really valued education and Dave was a high school dropout. Who worked as a barber? Not that. There's anything wrong with that but it's a much simpler job than ads. Still Dave was very likeable and well known in the community is a good guy. You know that same year ED started to have stomach pains now. He said in a board meeting for local farmers that he had the meanest away from the world. Who's trying to kill him even though he didn't smile and he said everyone's still took it as a joke. They all understood. That Renault is a real force. Probably wasn't the easiest woman to live with. Now I mean what can you say about right Allah from what we know. She was wearing the pants in her home. No matter who she was married to and you didn't want across her she could hold a grudge dislike her mom. I guess but then tragedy struck in October of nineteen ninety one because that was admitted into the hospital he thought it was just for an appendectomy but during that surgery a Denno carcinoma was found on his appendix and too small intestine so they did some further exploratory surgery and they found that he had cancer. That had metastasized to several organs. It was just all over his abdomen so there was no chance of curing him of that
Rush Limbaugh reveals that he has advanced lung cancer
"The news that Rush Limbaugh shared in this program I today and I want to comment on that for those of you who did not hear it he did announce ID's Rogan today that he has like cancer any described as advanced he said that he's going to continue to do the show although he's going to be off from time to time for treatment so forth and so on it he wanted to share with the audience because if he didn't he was gone a lot of people would be one always going on indeed want things to leak out so so forth and so on he's sixty nine years old he's no spring chicken anymore addresses been doing the show for a long time better than thirty years obviously starting way back in nineteen eighty nine right around the time eighty eight actually started right around the time I started my show in Milwaukee and he's with a couple of ups and downs and such an institution and such an important part of talk radio and somebody radio stations around the country that it's hard to minimize the impact that he has on things so without regard to how this plays out and how much time it's going to be off the air and how it all works out for him it's a significant story in and of itself does aside problem the personal situation for Russian I don't know anything more than what he said on the program today other than that he said that add if you know anything about like cancer just about everybody does because who doesn't know somebody who's had lung cancer it's just it's a pervasive awful disease that's very common in the United States but unlike a lot of the other cancers one of the reasons why lung cancer just get somebody people is that office it's not discovered until it's very very advanced because unlike some other cancers there's often very few if any symptoms but you have with one cancer in fact rush said that he's not in any pain is that in any anything he had noticed a few weeks ago that even short of breath and he thought well Gee is this my heart is that this is a bad as of the other things we went in for a check up bad they found that there was a problem with the lugs it but they got in there they followed that there's there's cancer dot in there and that's the problem with so many people who end up with lung cancer it's not only a very difficult cancer to deal with that and also was one that was fat but metastasize is throughout your body at do it you know of the cancers the get it's one of the worst ones that have it's usually never caught early because you don't know you
‘Richard Jewell’ and Olivia Wilde’s Offensive Portrayal of the Late Journalist Kathy Scruggs
"Brian on your podcast with David Shoemaker. The press box talked a lot about the controversies around Richard Jewel. Let's unpack some of those quickly before we start getting into the nitty gritty of the film Maybe you can help us understand specifically what role. A person named Kathy scruggs plays in this. Yeah she plays a problematic role. I think we should say she was a big figure. In in the coverage of Richard Jewel. She was a co byline on the very first story in this movie she is kind of a suggestion of a character. More than character. Actor probably The big news of courses that they in the movie they suggest or I guess more than just right she sleeps with an FBI agent. Yes after he gives her a tip yes that they are investigating Richard Jewell. Yes it literally say. She does not literally say I will now sleep with you because you have given me this information But that happens in rapid succession in the span of thirty seconds. It's kind of like the trump Ukraine call. Oh it's a quid. Pro Quo don't have to say it. We know what happened. It was a perfect bout of sex for information as trump might say and Olivia Wilde. And I think you're talking about the delivery. Wild has suggested that she was a relationship with this. FBI This is. This is again some reporting that none of us were aware of before this. That's not what's Woodson the movie the movie is high. Sure Gimme some information and I will do you a favor and then the FBI agent played by. Jon Hamm mm says Oh so we are doing this. which would suggest that they were not doing this before the exchange of information? Yeah Yeah So. This controversy has swallowed the movie up in a lot of ways and I did not think that was going to be the case. And over the course of the run up to the release of the Movie Warner Brothers released a statement sort of defying the Atlanta Journal. Constitution's rebuttal of the movie. They were very proactive. In identifying the fact that this is a movie and there is some fictionalization traumatisation happening here. I wanted to talk to you guys especially about what happens when a movie takes liberties like this is generally speaking. For Art's sake. I think we should always be doing doing this. There's the movie should always be stretching and redefining and re imagining and re contextualising these stories to tell better stories that it's not the job of movies to make good journalists. It's the job of journalists to make good journalists but this seems to be a situation where cleese would obviously the director and and grandfather grandfather of this film. hasn't very specific points of view about authority in the media and there is an expectation that he brought a lot of those ideas. Do Do you think that the movie suffered greatly because of this conversation or or is this just something that we talk about on podcast. Because we're all in the media. Dave Weigel political writer had a great tweet where he said all this controversy convinced fenced liberals that they didn't WanNa see Richard Jewel but the controversy wasn't big enough to convince conservatives that they could own the lips by seeing Richard Jewel. So it Kinda put Richard Jewel in this weird have state I'm with you. I'm all for historical fiction and broad license to do it. The exception I would make is in a case like like this because you could have just picked a random person but you picked a real life reporter who's not famous and you're telling the world the one thing you should know about this woman other than that. She broke the story. Initially but Richard Jewel being under investigation by the FBI. She slept with somebody to get the information. So I think if you're going to do that and then take the additional step as wild suggested that this is based in reality this isn't billy ray writing the screenplay allow. Let's make something up you owe it to show your work in some way whether it's an op-ed whether it's an interview or something because this is beyond this is not famous people. Having a conversation in the White House is a real person sue. This is a a very pernicious and well-established trope in movies about female journalists female journalists in movies are always sleeping with the sources which you know I should just go on record in case you you are not as involved in the media as we are. That's not what happens in real life. We're not all sleep with our sources just so you know. That's not allowed. But when I saw this movie. It was a couple days before the the kerfuffle started and I was so shocked. I thought that either I assumed assumed that. This journalist Kathy scruggs portrayed in the movie was not a real person and then when i Google that it was she was I was like okay. Either there is. She wrote a memoir where she literally said. This happened and I did this. And this is how I got the story in my involvement or else she's dead and friends it's option B because otherwise I was like how do you get away away from this with from a liable perspective. It's so blatant. And so and it stands out and the other thing is just it really it. It undermines the movie. I don't understand why you have to do this. Because this is a movie about how the media was responsible will in in and ruining rituals life which is like. That's fact right that is that definitely happened But to put in this seemingly fictionalized or unsubstantiated and like gross comment on a female journalists in the movie undermines all the legitimate if if tricky cases that Clint Eastwood and movie wants to make about the media's role in American politics in life I completely agree with this man was trapped in his home mm-hmm with his mom for eight days while people everyone in America thought he was a terrorist who had set a bomb and blown up people and it wasn't a case of some of these cases of guilt or innocence. Where it's Oh? He was a little bit involved but he wasn't no he was completely innocent. And Somehow you've done this and taking him him he's no longer the sympathetic figure and the journalists who was part of a team with the JC that made mistakes in covering him. And we're not skeptical enough of the government's evidence evidence and case you've turned them into the into the sympathetic figures. I just don't get it at all. It's a bit of a confounding thing I think a lot of journalists are struggling with the movie for the exact reason you mentioned. Amanda which is that I. I think it's actually quite a strong film in one of Clint's best movies and last fifteen years and it's been completely cast aside and a lot of ways not the Clinton needs another successful movie had plenty in his career but it's a movie that metastasized as a lot of ideas that he's fascinated by kind of like libertarianism in the pursuit sort of like a single man's pursuit of success in the face of a lot of people working against him the Atlanta Journal Constitution response to this though. I think has been a little little bit curious. The long piece that they that they published a sort of profile. Kathy's life I think in some ways was very helpful in terms of saving her reputation specifically early about these kinds of allegations but also revealed a person who obviously had a lot of struggles in her life. Who who did some things that are I think just on the page people will look at me like Oh? Maybe she didn't do that but she was that it's Actually like I thought hyper generated new conversation around her life and around the movie Brian. What did you think about? The idea of trying to memorialize is her in. Defend her in the pages of the paper like that. Well I thought one is I think you just want to give her an identity. You know she is she's been. She's not really much character as I said in this movie. Clint Eastwood doesn't really care about the media in this movie. Other than as there's this noise in this thing that's happening Richard. You didn't care about the way that story got written was very interesting actually is a bunch of editors editors and writers kind of putting that together imperfectly as often. Journalism is so they were trying to give her an identity. I think we've Kinda gone now over the falls where we've corrected is using this horrible. Oh stereotype that got into this movie and now we're kind of excusing. What the paper did and all the media did and saying? Oh Her story. I saw held up. No they didn't one guy was innocent and two there were actual mistakes in the peace even in the first piece in the paper together which so. It's totally understandable. Hannibal that the paper wants to do this. But to me at some point it becomes okay. You're giving us one identity. You're telling us the real story behind your life and then there's this conversation about what the media did to Richard Jewell. which is it's actually kind of separate one thing? That's a little lost in the conversation around this. I want to get your perspective on an Amanda is when you're making something let's say you're making a podcast or you're working on a story story or you're making media company every day you're collaborating people. And you're interrogating all of the choices they're making on a regular basis. You have questions about things. The Livia Wild Defense of the character is one of those things where you think that at some point you might ask a question. You might not just presume and I guess that's questioning maybe the integrity of what Olivia while saying the defensive. Her character but movies take a long time even even one day Clinton movies take a long time to make. There's a long time in the making so how. How did how was not not everyone on the same page with this? What am I going to say? Movies do take a long time to make but relatively this was like a very quick movie At least in the filming like this was filmed over the summer of two thousand nineteen and it's December and now we're watching it so that's pretty wild and and it does really seem like Olivia Wilde. Got wanted to takes and it's like go okay. This is the performance going with which is it's it's a caricature I think. It's pretty generous and cruel version of a reporter which is fascinating because Libya while the daughter of journalists so i. I wouldn't say that this is a portrayal of empathy eighty and understanding at least from what I've seen Granted you only get to take her to but she the material is not there on also. Her interpretation of the material is pretty pretty intense but it definitely seems like it wasn't examined at the time and it certainly seems like no one anticipated this and no one got on the same page about their talking points because Libya has been all over the map. And I'm you know what I'm not sympathetic. With the fact that she's answering search for somme choices. I like this movie directed by Clint Eastwood. It's written by Billy Ray. But also she knows what she's doing. She read the
Uganda's Solution For Treating Extreme Pain
"In the US. Drugmakers have flooded the country with these powerful. We're foles sophisticated opioids that are at the center of the OPIOID epidemic. That's the US opioid crisis. Right but in Uganda and in fact in a lot of African countries for years they've been dealing with their own opioid crisis. which is the opposite issue patients? There don't have enough access to major painkillers. Why is is a combination of governments not spending on it not making it a priority which when it comes to an internationally controlled narcotic substance? There's a lot of red tape. So there's not many options beyond simple painkillers. Like ibuprofen seat him in offend a lot of tylenol. That's not usually enough for people in extreme pain like from cancer. It's GonNa feel so so horrible you just sometimes it's kind of been just end up paying undue like please get me through these. Please get me through this. Justin Anga has breast cancer. Hurt then metastasized. I met her at Hospice Center in Kampala. A tumor had reached her spinal cord just thirty years old but she's lost so much weight. She looks like she could be twelve. That's that's rough. Yeah really awful pain. But then a nurse gave Justina dose of Uganda's Goto solution drinkable liquid. Morphine she says the pain was gone in a matter of hours. A wind and the tone may good city game and I just drifted We do morning from Lake. Wow extra slipped to morning okay. So liquid morphine. That's I mean that's an opioid that can be addictive right. Yes but in Uganda. Health officials say they've figured out a system for how to use it effectively cheaply and safely safely to treat pain. So today on shortwave. Managing Pain in Uganda. We hear about this simple solution that they've come up with drinkable liquid morphine. It's been life changing for patients in terrible pain and not just in Uganda. It's a model that a lot of countries throughout Africa are looking to as a way to bring pain relief.
Episode 11 Laying Out For CRISPR
"Well and Michael Are you a person who always on sunscreen when you go outside no no no I got I don't get it I you know this summer I got out within in a while now that are a little older I feel like between becoming an adult did you know working nine to five with the sun's out of them young kids but now nowadays if you know we got it we went to the pool we do all that stuff I- I tand pretty well so I'm not going to be outside for twenty minutes I don't worry about it I did get one sunburn this year so maybe I should have done it more yeah well people used to go to the beach and just cover themselves in baby oil so they could be getting good hand but I feel like those days are mostly gone more likely at the beach juicy people ladies in huge hats China protect themselves from the sun from all the damage that it causes but I don't know think about what would you do Oh my goal if you if you were had some sort of issue where every time you went in the sun you would take the risks up developing cancer I mean isn't that what we're replying with sun damage this bill basically that a any any real sun exposure gives you cancer I mean that's that's you got burned that summer did you kanter no but did I raise my chance of getting cancer you're talking about like I would have burst into like cancerous immediately it's GonNa be rain down on me it's GonNa be the big chip on my in my arm is going to pop up cancer all of a sudden because I walked out in the sun for five minutes yeah yeah I mean you you go outside you get a Thun Bern and within a few days you develop them and malignant melanoma developing on your skin the I I would start sleeping during the day working tonight yeah that's exactly what this man in California has done. He suffers from an extremely rare disease he's where he has extreme sunlight sensitivity so that anytime he goes out in the sun he he developed mold on his body that can eventually become cancerous and so yes he definitely has had a job where he works at night and he is now petitioning in offering his ready to be Chris Byrd the name of science oh he's he's doing what now exactly so he's offering himself up to be Chris Byrd by way we so this isn't this isn't a seventy he's not going out in Suntan in you know baby oil and going out in the sun and getting crisper that that's not what you're talking about no no he is an in he he experiences malignant melanoma basically every time he goes out in the nine anytime he had some exposure so what client what classifies it as malignant. I'm not I mean I have all sorts of freckly type moles that you certainly not malignant but what makes them what makes them malignant versus just hey this is something that happens to my skin in the sun right so if you're the malignant melanoma then the problem is that it can eventually miss metastasized and spread to the rest of the body and so every day he basically has to look at his entire body and check himself l. for mold that could develop because of any sort of UV exposure and as soon as he notices them to go and get them removed now okay so you've been dealing with it since he was nine years old and he started developing all of these moles off his body and when he came of age of nineteen he eventually got graveyard shift as a waiter denny's just so that you wouldn't have to expose themselves to any any sunlight is this has he got cancer no he hasn't I don't think so but he feels like at some point at he's getting older I think I think he's thirty now in key fields like it's getting worse and worse than he feels like eventually he's going to miss something and that he will get cancer yes so he has in genetic disease it's something that he inherited it inherited it is not really a name for this disease it's so rare and there's no no cure for eight besides just avoiding the sun at all costs and so so he has started petitioning scientists to ask him to see if they they can Christopher his buddy if they can care it retroactively remove via yes but that's not really how it works right I mean he is however millions of cells with carry this thing so how can you give them all that now that's a really great question because that is not how Chris Bury were crisper is an amazing technology it can be a US to alter it can be used to take out small amounts of of DNA sequences to basically turn off a gene which we talked a few weeks ago about the scientists in Russia who is trying to crisper the the babies who are likely to be born death right and so in McKay The scientist is actually just deleting the this sequence that has the mutation so that the gene that causes that the problem is is basically turned off which by the way I update you days ago that that scientists is going ahead with the plan he's actually started editing the genes in human eggs yeah sure let's let's be exciting yeah so he doesn't necessarily have approval to you start to to start the experiment to actually implant thanks but he's going ahead and editing them in just in case he does get all right and this is what was basically the same thing as he needs to have a willing he's going to have to have a willing participant though in this case I guess it'll be a parental we'll participant the volunteer child and here's this guy this guy wants to be like hey let's let's push this forward throughout all this approval just hey come on come do what you want to me I'll be getting big well the guy in Russia here already has parental approval you're talking about the the guy that wants that his moles that Christopher guy that that's what worries about getting Chris Byrd he wants to be Chris Byrd because he's worried about getting Chris Byrd in exactly to get two crispy in the sun so he's going to get Chris Byrd well yes so the guy in California he read in two thousand seventeen about the bio hacker designer he failed in genetic engineering kit and is that the guy that just like just randomly starts putting stuff in his arm because when he was at a biotechnology conference and just injected a crisper cocktail in to his body supposedly it was a muscle boosting crisper cocktail Yep not quite sure how that works or if it's legit but it's definitely something that that he was interested in display hang so yeah so the California he saw that that happened he said Hey I wanna be Chris Byrd so he started he took it upon himself to try and find a gene and that could save him and he found a gene that he would like to have Chris Byrd into his body right so so the house aside where he founded Jean that he doesn't have or well gee what does he turn on two hundred one off I I don't this is getting media leaves a bit gene his diseases he's missing gene or what they don't know exactly what conduct his his I guess his acidic genetic mutation he doesn't know exactly which mutation he has I'm sure some scientists could eventually find that out but I guess the route that he's going to do if he found a gene in the water bear the okay a bear correct have you ever seen these little little tiny indestructible things yeah yes so he found something and and one of those eight legged water-bearers that it's a gene that protects them from the damaging effects of radiation which is one of the reasons why they have such a long little life fan so he is trying to find someone who will basically crisper that gene into his body okay good plan right war yeah the show this is great I love this plan this is a great plan is well thought out for sure he hasn't although he has all the information and he knows what the Da- I I mean I I get I get the desire and shore you WanNa be the Guinea pig but this just seemed like snake oil on this thing wearing red shirts and he had he makes great he's always got these redshirts is regulated color red well that guy that guy's really good at basketball uh-huh maybe I'll be really good at basketball and that's what the skills like
18 Years After 9/11, Is Peace Approaching?
"Listening to the panel discussion of wrote today. I'M GONNA in Beijing eighteen years after nine. Eleven attacks is peace approaching refusing to hand over Osama bin Laden al Qaeda who was quickly identified as a man responsible the US invaded Afghanistan marking the start of Afghanistan war against the Taliban eighteen years of war and talks president trump declared a recently the peace talk was the a wisdom holly. Ali Ben were dead after the Council Secreta meeting with a group in the United States to continue our panel discussion. We have Zun can research fellow with coaching while university and Joe Hi Research Fellow at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and Max Abrahams in the United States Assistant Professor of political legal science at northeastern university so max first of all what do you make of the very idea of inviting the Taliban to Washington for the first time especially at a time time closed due commemoration of nine eleven attack. I'm very surprised from I think that that at the invitation that should never have actually really hard to believe that trump invited the how to all right around the anniversary of nine eleven. I mean trump used to criticize Obama for negotiating with the Taliban remotely never mind from nine eleven never buy we. Are you know with the idea that I would lead to keep with the Taliban. The negotiations previously were over and so I. I don't grudge The recinding Oh that invitation he almost didn't make expense. I mean the story was at the invitation was presented because an American was killed in the violence well. That's it's really not very surprising at all to call them remains very violent group and if anything seems escalated to violence during these you so called negotiation that Ted I don't WanNa leave you were with the impression that some Hawk on. I'm actually not in favor of the United States withdrawing from but I don't believe you that negotiation are a requirement to do what the United States should do in Afghanistan. It's simple we appeal to the VM Dope in France I don't think that the United States should lecture the Taliban on how it needs to you know with the Afghan government or how needs to reduce militancy locally or how it needs to respect human rights the Taliban isn't going to do any of these things you need to do. Simply state is its power and we we don't want to be in your country and you don't Wanna in your country and so we are going to withdraw however if circuit it is another nine eleven attack if the if the NPS is used again as a launchpad for Bass casualty the terrorist attack against the United States then the American public phobe strongly in favor of returning Tennessee on essentially giving you the ice discretely so it's really up to you the Tobin he want to remain a local group because if you start acting like a transnational terrorist group and if you don't police the area if you allow your country to be used by groups like the al-Qaeda Akagi network two large international well then we may come back in the gloves come off and so I do not believe that negotiations with the Taliban or advisable and I don't think that they're a requirement for us to get out of that John would trump hope to accomplish with a meeting with with the Taliban in the United States in the first place. I want to go back into history just a little bit in two thousand nine. When Obama first entered into office he started the so-called search Afghanistan adding more than thirty thousand troops in Afghanistan. Try to stabilize the country and try to protect the communities immunities on the ground so that's the Karzai government can stand on its food now. Ten years later is not successful in in terms of protecting and also continue to help the current. Afghan government to sustain yourself and on the other side. I Taliban expanding territory and now occupy more than two thirds of the country particularly in the rural area so I think it's not that at the US wanted to do this or that is that they cannot achieve the original goal of eradicating terrorism and also establishing a government pretty much finished the task of nation-building so at this point they were forced to negotiate with the Taliban if they want to withdraw troops according to some time lie and there's a very strong support in the United States for us to withdraw from that country because some people think staying that catch far too long and they are now in less risk from terrorism from that country so trump is actually representing a lot of people. The majority of Americans will to withdraw from that country is just way too through what approach that you can withdraw with confidence that Taliban will no longer support terrorism continue to be a launchpad for terrorism but negotiations didn't go well because again trump trump just won't theatrics. He wanted to have a big deal to show to American. People that he got things done however when you go to the real real problem and trying to solve that problem there are a lot of mistrust between the Taliban the US government so on the one hand Taliban don't think that the US will completely withdraw from Afghanistan and on the other side of the US still wanted to stay there and monitor situation people in the trump administration creation particularly recent fired national security advisor Baltim- probably still want to maintain a number of military force and the basis in Afghanistan still operating so when you still have this mistrust. It's very difficult to get the grand deal Dan overnight. That's why inviting Taliban into the United States probably for a signing ceremony is a very bad idea from the very beginning now it fells part so zone withdraw from Tom. Ghanistan Dow was the key two thousand sixteen trump campaign promise so hall political of Trump's a decision of on Afghanistan immediately twenty twenty onto your reelection pressure. I mean I agree I agree with what the judges said that it it a lot of the negotiation a lot of this this process was about the trump campaign achieving this big promise on their mandate and with the twenty twenty election coming up a grand and victory in Afghanistan would have meant this big deal that was signed between the Taliban and the US government but you know let's again go back in history in two thousand and eleven and twelve there was a big call by the Obama Administration for the Karzai government assigned the BSE and within the Afghan government there were two different parties one that wanted the US troops to leave withdrawal instant withdrawal so that the Taliban would come to the negotiation table and which turned out to be the assure of any government. They were not in favor of immediate withdrawal. Now we see that for the US list for the American people withdrawal from Afghanistan is important. It's a war that has cost almost nine hundred and eighty billion. US dollars over the years. It's been eighteen eighteen years and we don't know what what what the war is for Osama bin. Laden was found killed in two thousand eleven he initially not handing over was the reason to going to have gone is Stan then the question of nation building the trump administration has clearly said that we're not here to build anything and of course as was mentioned by I earlier panelists the gone Taliban have two thirds more more of the Afghan territory under them than before so clearly it seems to be at that the presence in Afghanistan isn't achieving anything concrete but it's not about the presence in Afghanistan of the war in Afghanistan. It is about what are the consequences quences off an exit that is premature and the consequences can be dire. we know what happened in the nineteen ninety s Pakistan Afghanistan the region at on as a whole suffered because of an abrupt ending to aboard that wasn't well planned and right now of course for from the American perspective if nine eleven and God forbid is to happen again then we can go back and treat them the way isis has been treated but that is not the real question you have China you have Pakistan. You'll save India the government government which has been supported by the Americans to abandon them of ruthlessly can have consequences fall was and what happened was nine eleven post nineteen eighty s war in Afghanistan and I think the these are important questions for us to address. The Quadrilateral Coordination Group was one initiative right now. How only last weekend Beijing Islamabad and representatives from a Samba and Kabul were together and these are small efforts to new negotiate and to understand what the government is willing to accept so a withdrawal is important? How long it's going to take is one question but but what the consequences of a withdrawal that only looks at American interests are is an important one to to address Max anything to add. We've seen wiz North Korea. That's trump cam blown up a process and then try and restarted a couple weeks later a will that be the case with Afghanistan as well well. I think that the biggest problem with put the US can sell an in Afghanistan is that fails to to limit what our objectives are in that country of course the reason why they are is because of nine eleven when we went there to kill the perpetrators and of course bin Laden and actually to a large extent people forget that been Nishel school. was what successful well not entirely but certainly partially takes us. We killed off a large portion. the computer chip that of course we didn't get all of them. We didn't even get bin Laden. 'til your later the threat when metastasized but other media respond. I would do that. You know maybe apiece score or V clock but the the problem is then you had mission creek and we added on all sorts of theory objected so you know making peace now in the country more broad try to hammer out negotiations between the Taliban and the Afghan uncover concerns about human rights stuff. He's all important goals as in in terms of normative attractive they're very important no doubt but the US military doesn't have the capacity to ameliorate I these other goal and so the United States particularly the military needs to understand mimic caisson nations of US power around the world. I I think from the very start or goals in Afghanistan should have been limited took counterterrorism in very soon after arriving theon team and so we continue to have you know these goals also which are unrealistic and so I think that we need to keep counter terrorism at the forefront of our objective and we should have left very soon after arriving upon accomplishing our objective our counterterrorism effective to the extent that we were able to joey in August talking about the limitation of the US force in August trump said he's
U.S. Plans to Open Direct Talks with Houthis in Yemen
"A wall street journal exclusive. We report that the u._s. Is planning to open direct talks with hutu forces in yemen in an attempt to end the country's four year war joining me now from washington with more details is wall street. Journal national security reporter warren strobel warren. This is a conflict between iran backed who the rebels on the one side and a saudi arabian coalition backed by the u._s. on the other that began as a civil war in yemen before years ago. Yes the current violence began as a civil war between the hutus and the internationally recognized government of yemen but it quickly metastasized ostracized into sort of a larger regional conflict with the saudis and the united arab emirates coming in on this basically against the who these was some backing from the united estates in on on the other side iran came in with what officials charges financial aid training and weapons for the huskies so it's sort of become a microcosm because of the larger regional conflict in the gulf and the u._s. Backing of the saudi coalition that you mentioned has drawn bipartisan opposition here in congress it it has indeed it's actually one of the very few issues that you can find people on both the democratic and republican side the island congress <hes> agreeing on they feel that the u._s. is supplied weapons to the saudis in particular and the saudis have used them in a non responsible way causing literally thousands of civilian casualties. There was a move to cut off support for the saudis <hes> cut cut off arms transfers basically and that was passed but vetoed by president trump over time the u._s. Actually has sort of slowly reduced its support for the saudi led coalition that is doing these airstrikes <hes> stopped <hes> late last year stopped refueling planes but still provides intelligence and some other support and as you mentioned this the effort to open direct talks with who these comes as there are heightened tensions between the u._s. and iran and the surrounding region as well so what is prompting plans to open a direct dialogue now yeah i think there are concerns that <hes> yemen which although it's become part of this larger conflict is is obviously is it's one of the worst humanitarian it is the worst humanitarian crisis in the world according to the u._n. And there's concern that if you get further dragged into the into the sort of regional conflict making making the war there the conflict they're harder to solve so that that is certainly one issue that that people are looking at. I think the other issue is that from sources tell tell us this effort to open a channel with who these by the u._s. sort of a recognition or acknowledgment that there's no military solution to the conflict the saudi emirati intervention engine there has has not worked. There's not a winnable way winnable war here for the saudis and it's time to try a different tack warren as you just said the war in yemen has devastated the country the u._n. Saying the yemen is home to the world's worst humanitarian crisis and that's just one of the considerable challenges ahead here. Yes s. u. Of you have widespread cholera epidemic in yemen you have millions of people who <hes> have been forced from their homes millions who are at risk for starvation and <hes> the u._n.

'Toy Story 4' is a Masterpiece. Is It in Pixar's Top 5?
"You. I'm Shawn fantasy editor in chief of the ringer. And this is the big Pixar podcast. They conversation show about Toy Story, four and all sorts of childish things. I'm joined today by apparent at the ringer rob heart villa. Hello rub. Hello. How's it going? It's going very well. And I appreciate you being here. You know, some of my frequent co host on the show among them, amended Dobbins, and Chris Ryan are, just straight up assholes about animated movies, and I noticed that I need to have people on to talk about important animated films. And I think even before you were a parent, you would have been a thoughtful and sophisticated guest for this episode, but you are a father and so you are happenings moves to Pixar in, in deep way in recent years. Is that fair to say that's very fair to say very complicated relationship with these movies at this point? But yes, yes, so we'll talk about that a bit on this show. I think we'll start the show though by talking about the new Pixar movie, which is, of course, Toy Story four, I think, when Pixar I started about twenty or so years ago, I never would have guessed that. That there would have been a fourth installment of any of these movies, in fact when they started. They seemed like a new version of a kind of storytelling that didn't necessitate sequels if you look on the ring dot com right now you can read a really interesting column by miles Surrey about the state of Pixar and their decision to make a series of sequels over the last ten years, and what that means for their, their brand, and what it means for their business and what it means for their creativity. And in some ways, I think it's been really threatened over the last few years, you know, we were just talking before we started recording about the infamous cars, three, which I would say is not one of the more legendary. In the Pixar verse. But Toy Story four, I thought was quite wonderful. And I thought it hearkens back to what makes a lot of these films. Great and also push them forward a little bit, rob. How did you receive toys story for what did you make in the movie, I saw last night with my sons who are eight and five and sort of Iraq is sort of preview screening. And I my kids laughed more laughed, louder just more obnoxiously than at any movie. I think that I've ever taken them to know. So I by by that measure, I mean it was a huge success. And I thought it was wonderful, and I thought it push things forward, but also sort of hold back on that sort of classic Pixar idea that like the kids are delighted, and the parents are total emotional wrecks. You know what I'm saying? Like I it's sort of an impressive mass magic trick that these movies can do. And I think especially of inside out, you know, which was, my, I think I've written about this on the side a couple times now. But like my son walk. Out of inside out. He was five at the time and he thought anger was funny, and I was just crying mess, you know, because I just watched I just watch goofball island, which is like the visual manifestation of like a joyful kid becoming a sullen teenager, like depicted, on, like a giant theater screen, and it was just the most crushing experience like the way those movies these movies are designed to work on those two levels, and they sort of drive, the parents to the toy store, but also to therapy, like, I, I feel like this one was sort of uncomplicated, Katie just funny and delightful and I had it seriousness and had like themes that parents, especially it would pick up on. But like it wasn't working that dichotomy where it was sort of, like designed to upset me personally, you know what I'm saying? Like I feel like they can play with that a little bit. But they don't have to hammer at it all the time in every movie that they put out, you know, I could just enjoy my kids, enjoying this one, a lot more than I feel like the last. Several Pixar movies. Yeah. I agree with that. I do think though, there is this entire school of almost academic sought around Pixar movies. And if you want to, if you want to experience Toy Story four as an exegesis on creationism and identity and a cartesian analysis of society, you probably could do that. I absolutely. Yeah. And I think that is that, that whole divide is fascinating to me the way that you've underlying basically the pure kid enjoyment of something, and the way that adults are entertained, and even moved by some of their films. I feel like can you give me a little bit of a sense of as a parent? What it's like to see a lot of movies like this, not just Pixar movies, but animated movies or what's on TV or what streaming for your kids and what the balance is between this is secretly for parents. And this is actually just dumb entertainment for kids, so that they don't like break things in the kitchen. Yeah. I mean, I feel like I've seen every type of movie along that spectrum, you know, and I haven't hated any. Movie that I think I've taken my kids to even like down to, like rock dog or whatever, you know, like I it's the LEGO movies are trying to be adult and trying to be knowing and it feels like they are specifically pitched for the adults in a way that, like a lot of the jokes are going right over the kids heads, like I don't dislike those movies, but I think that the LEGO movies are a little too cute about that. You know, I've seen plenty of things like, you know, the emoji movie or the trolls movie or whatever. Which are, you know, have theoretically adult jokes, but aren't trying to work that duality certainly the way that Pixar movies. Are you think about four key who like the new protagonist are like the new cool character here in Toy Story, four four key spends the movie like having an identity crisis like ease? He's a new toy but he thinks he's trash. And like he wants to be trash like he's literally, a spark with pipe cleaner arms, and he spends the whole first thirty minutes of the movie is going trash trash. And like I think that's really profound. And my son just really loves the way that four key keep saying, trash trash, like he did it. My son did it all the way home whole drive home like. And it's that's a cool. Little thing, that's you know, the different levels, and you can appreciate it on without it having to be this comedy versus tragedy divide. You know, it's sort of typifies, you know, again, like inside out, or even like the last toys story movie, Toy Story, three ends, of course, with, like, the scene, where they're all heading down into the incinerator, and they all sort of somberly, join hands and they're sort of resigned to the fact that they're all gonna die like all these little toys, and it's you know, I'm sort of a crying rack, and like my sons are sort of mildly disturbed, but they figure everything is going to be okay. And it is, but, like there's a moment of like pure pesos on that level in this movie, and I was, frankly, kind of relieves like the idea that I have to walk into every Pixar movie like braced dad, this huge sort of existential breakdown, you know, as my kids, just enjoy themselves like at felt like we pulled back on that. A little bit. And I was grateful for that. I agree with you. It's it did feel bit like an episodic adventure, which wasn't a bad Yang. I think sometimes you can get a movie like that, where the stakes have been lowered from the previous film, and you're like, well nigh. You're just wasting my time. But inevitably when it's a movie about anthropomorphized toys, somehow, it's nice to just have something that is a little bit more fun. I mean you mentioned Toy Story three which, you know, sort of ends with that transition from Andy to Bonnie, and then inevitably Bonnie becomes the, the young child, who is the owner of all these toys. And so were reintroduced to a world that features some of Bonnie's toys, and then the toys from the classical Toy Story story, and then four he comes along on the first day school. I, I did feel in that sort of first day of school moment that I was getting some of those inside out vibes that you're talking about where it's sort of, like they have managed to metastasized the most vulnerable feeling that you can have in your life. That that's scary trust. They of school where like I don't know anybody and everybody hates me. And I'm afraid and I miss everything. Is comfortable around me and they zero in on it, and they show it to you through the eyes of a little kid. And you immediately feel a recognition. That is a storytelling power. That is often overstated about Pixar allow me to overstate at wants more like it's amazing how they manage to locate and isolate those feelings and show them to you on screen, and make you relate to them like I am consistently blown away by that. There's another one at the end, when there's the kid lost at the fair, you know, she's just sort of there's a little girl, and she's crammed between, you know, to food carts or whatever, and she's crying and like, yeah, it's the exact same feeling and I yeah, there's a conversation also I think it's between Woody and four key. And like I think what he says, like, you know, these kids like you watch them grow up and become a person. And then they leave, you know, they'll do things you'll never see like the whole point of these movies is that the toys realized that one day, they'll be abandoned. You know, one day, they'll fall out a favor and one day, the kids will run off without them and won't need them anymore. That's, that's not even subtexts. Like that's just that's exa-. Exactly how parents feel watching these movies, you know, I think that's always there. And it is really striking. You know, I mean, this is possibly the best movie I've ever seen with the numeral four in it. You know what I'm saying? As you as you said, like I understand sort of the dismay, or at least a concern that Pixar has become by and large, like a sequel factory, you know, but I I I didn't dislike incredible to at all. But like I felt like certainly this was a better sequel than any of the other sequels that we've had this year. Obviously, you've been talking about how terrible and how sort of lifeless, they are like this is just a one eighty from that. Yeah. They staved it off. It's, it's a pretty impressive single-handed job in a in a friend summer from hell for this movie to come along and, and gay ever. So briefly, I think I think pause things one thing, that's notable too, is, you know, we're talking about the human emotion that they're able to imbue into these films and into these characters in the movies directed by Josh Cooley, who is. Essentially a first time Pixar director, though. He's worked for the company for a while and the screenplay has two people credited, but the story has two four six eight people credited and it's a complicated list of people. I'm going to read it to you really quickly story by John Lasseter Rashida Jones will McCormack Josh Cooley. Valerie LaPointe, Martin Hines, Stephanie, fulsome, and Andrew Stanton. Now, the last two people are the official authors of the screenplay famously when this movie came together, Rashida Jones and will McCormack her writing partner were brought on board to write it, and they eventually left the project because they felt like they were not as open minded about new voices, particularly a woman of color talking about the way to tell these stories for Pixar Pixar, very famously has had some fraught history with, with John Lasseter, one of its co founders chief imagine ear for a number of years due to sexual misconduct allegations. And the company has I, I would say affectively weathered the. Storm, whatever that can mean an has moved on from Lassiter, who I believe is most recently appointed to a position on inside of sky dance, and they're animated division of paramount, but it's so strange to have an event like that happening
"metastasized" Discussed on KLBJ 590AM
"Good for you. While you're still our world explore when anything happens around this planet, we want you to jump on it and the so much going on these days right now, the you get the feeling Robert things are under control or out of control worldwide. Well, we had eight years under President Obama in which we took sort of conciliatory steps towards some of the players in the Middle East. So, you know, we deals with Iran to sort of tone things down and we had Arab spring, and then we had a series of semi democratic. Leaderships in the Middle East Mediterranean area. So we had a bunch of crises that they didn't pop or explode. And when President Trump came into office, we then reversed course, now in any any political situation when you reverse course, sort of period of nothing happening, and all of a sudden things started to speed up and this summer what we're going to see is the Neta fact of reversing our foreign policy, and we're already seeing military offenses and places like Libya and Yemen, another countries and also Afghantistan, so this is going to be very busy with violence. I think so too. And we, of course, seen so much of it over the last couple of months that doesn't seem to go away wanted to ask you a question about ISIS because the president did say that ISIS had been defeated. But today video pops up of a guy that everybody thought was dead Baghdadi who heads up ISIS. I mean where is this guy? Well, okay. So ISIS ISIS is metastasized. And you know, that means when you have a medical condition that you think you have control, and you, you know, ply some kind of medication or chemotherapies it accidentally spread the disease gets worse Hoti. So what most people don't realize is that ever since Baghdadi made that famous speech in the eight hundred year old mosque in Mosul. There have been a hundred and forty three attacks over thirty countries. And what that means is we've been focused on Syria because that was sort of a geographical battle to get rid of ISIS, but we haven't been paying attention to the spread or the franchising of ISIS from everywhere to the Philippines to sort of call them copycat or inspired attacks in places like France. And even America who's financing these people were they getting their weapons. So it started in Iraq. Remember, we had a huge reconstruction budget. A friend of mine was doing secret mission over there, and they were dropping bombs on banks. And I said, oh, he's getting rid of the ISIS. Money's reconstruction money. And the reality is that we pumped billions of dollars into Iraq, which was in shaved off in used by ISIS or in people in the end bar problems to fund is once ISIS gets its tentacles into a town or region that begin taxation so everybody has to pay a certain percentage of taxes from their businesses their income like a mob shakedown exactly then there's funding. So when I was in Libya watching our forces kill ISIS each business had a logo spray painted on it to show that it was paying taxes to ISIS. And of course, they didn't. They dragged him out in chapter heads offered something terrible to them. So it's self-funding insurgency group, and it can go anywhere. There's any kind of infection any small dispute that one group might have another. Other. They literally send trainers. Propagandists. 'financiers and trainers to within sort of ninety days have them up and running his ISIS and they're up at running into doing. It the roll over the place, aren't they? Well, the goal now is not so much to have real estate. So college was supposed to be, you know, huge spread of geographical control. They know that's not gonna work. So what they're doing? Now is they're saying, for example, three Lanka, you know, who the heck would predict ISIS attack in Sri Lanka. So they provide the expertise they provide the explosives training. And then when they say you're linked to ISIS you get global publicity for this violent event. So it's it's a it's a it's the Colonel Sanders of terrorism, you know, it has much more impact now anywhere in the world. You think the burning of Notre Dame cathedral had anything to do with terrorism? Or do you think it was indeed restoration problems that happen? Well, so I believe that they're done a study. And they said it was caused by fire. But before that there had been multiple attacks on churches in they're actually been. That's right. I sys inspired plot to light a fire. Now that tells you all you need. To know about terrorism because the symbolism of terrorism is more frightening than the actual act of terrorism. So all ISIS would have to do is claim that event, and then you have to spend millions of dollars in publicity trying to compete with that. And this is the danger of asymmetrical warfare throw some countries your way Roberts, and tell us your views on how we're handling things with them. Let's start of course with with Russia. The, you know, the attack on the president and the talk of Russian collusion apparently hasn't filtered out at all and Philip petered away actually in this particular case what's going on with Russia. What did they what did they what do you think? They actually did. Well, Russia's a very tiny country, and it has much more impact than than the economics military. What really happened is that during the lead up to the transition of power between President Obama and. President Trump a number of people were performing diplomacy essentially trying to unwind Obama's sanctions on Putin. And Putin supports Olea guards. You know, the wealthy who who also support him. And this is a very comfortable relationship for a guy that's been running that country since nineteen ninety nine. And so the idea was let's be friendly with Russia, and let's try to get them away from supporting Ron, and this is an agenda that they have. So the collusion was was almost farcical. You know, it was like dancing at the high school prom where people were putting out feelers and people were trying to chase those down. But there never was any Clinton dirt never was any real collusion. But the Mueller report was triggered by sense of espionage that there must be some Russian and going on. And there was some meat or some fire was smoke. I didn't help the President Trump can get. Romancing with Vladimir Putin and asking him to hack look for emails and things like that. But at the end of the day was an investigation Miller did a good job. He found many other things he has fourteen other cases that has to be resolved, but Trump fields vindicated. But it should be a warning to us that Russia is actively involved in influencing elections. What about our relationship with Iran? Why can't we get a better relationship with them? Are they that bad? No. But, you know, this starts in nineteen seventy nine, you know, two things started nineteen seventy nine which was the Soviets invading Afghanistan when we began to create essentially jihadis funding extremists. And also when you had the revolution in Iran in which they threw out the man that we had installed shop. So we have a long history of antagonist with the current mullah's because of obviously the embassy kidnapping and a history of supporting terrorist groups and violent acts against the US. It's changed dramatically in the last few years because if you look at a map, and you look at where Saudi Arabia is oil is it's right on the coast across Meron and the biggest threat to Saudi Arabia would be the complete elimination of their dictatorship by Ron by taking over their oil. So we have a thing called Neo cons. You know, these are people that believe in the sort of Choi of of Israel. Real Arab nations and sort of fundamental union between Christians and Jews and Muslims. And we have created this new axis of I don't know what the call it. But we are working actively with Saudi Arabia in the UAE to support Israel's goals which essentially to push back on round because that's Israel's biggest fear now has around declared war on us. Have we come to blows with Iran? Yes. We've pushed our luck. And they've pushed their luck. And we're literally bookending them in Iraq and Afghanistan, so they feel threatened and that is going to be a flashpoint so ever since sure isn't sixteen they have been working with a number of groups to come up with some kind of false flag operation, which I would be in Lebanon or Syria. It would be started by somebody or Runyan's attacking some western elements, and then Israel would begin than we would time in. And then that that's our war. Most arrangements. I am told love the western way of living. Do you agree with that? Yeah. Because that's where culture comes from. But don't forget there at the crossroads right? They're literally in the middle of Asia and the west, and they are more than able to appreciate not only their own culture. But obviously, you know, things that come from Asian the thing that comes from America right now, they live in a repressive somewhat restrictive environment. 'cause we keep turning the screws on them, and the Mola's want to have sort of this throwback environment in which yes, you can be educated, and you shouldn't get married, but you can't sort of be your own person. So anybody that travels to Iran, we'll tell you that they had a great time. And the people are wonderful and isn't sad that they are so poor that they're so repressed if the mullah's disappear Iran would just be a modern Middle Eastern nation. Yeah. No. I think you're absolutely right. Robert stay with us. We're gonna take a quick break. We'll come back and talk about China, North Korea and some other hot points all around this planet, Robert young. Pelton with us on coast to coast AM next hour will flip the switch and take phone calls for him. Those of you who are into worldly events while you'll be able to chat with him about some of those.

We'll never really had the idea that people would manage keep their money in separate accounts or hidden from each other. Joining counts was the way that my parents manage the household finances that was real skittish about that. I guess because my parents went through a a not very pretty divorced, but these differences they negotiated. Eventually they got around to saying, okay, let's do this. So like all of our counts were mutual and shared that sharing. Extended to an combs is dental practice. Ed comb stayed home with their boys while his wife supported them later, he returned to school to become a therapist, but his counseling practice was slow to take off.

And I think when he's been so we got share everything we got to do this for your business, and my business together all the time when that happened. The trust part was the hardest thing to get back getting it back required couples counseling. Apologies transparency time even forgiveness. She admits she resented repaying his debts like I don't wanna do that. I feel like you should bail yourself out for what you because it's been over two years since he came clean.

FDA finds breast implants cause rare form of cancer
"FDA meeting for the second day to address the populace possible risk of breast implants. The agency reported last fall that four hundred fifty seven cases of cancer detected and women with breast implants, some women with textured implants or developing a type of cancer called lymphoma. CBS's Anna Werner has more. Sandra, raw, she's a grandmother who'd had breast implants for more than two decades with no issues until April of twenty seventeen my left breast began to. Swell. And there was a hardness in what her doctor at. I thought was a common infection turned out to be cancer. I was in shock, really. I couldn't I couldn't believe it. It's called breast implant associated anaplastic large cell foam. A rare cancer the FDA says can develop following breast implants most women who get that cancer. Like rush have what are called textured breast implants. These shaped implants have a rougher surface. That's designed to limit the movement of implant. But may also initiate the cancer breast surgeon, Elizabeth Potter is Russia's doctor is one of the theories that this just kind of irritates and inflames the surrounding tissues just one of the theories because of the surface. That's right reports to the FDA show of four hundred fifty seven cancer cases, at least three hundred ten occurred with textured implants, most women are cured. After doctors, take the implants. Out. But in Sandra Russia's case after her implants were removed and she'd had breast reconstruction. She developed an odd pain in her jaw. So doctors did another test. It showed that it had metastasized all through my body. I can't imagine what that feeling is. Like, I was complete utter shock as incomplete. Utter shock. She wasn't the only one when I got the pathology report. I was astonished I I actually thought it was incorrect really, I read it and reread at the cancer had moved beyond the area the implant into her tissues and bones. And this was not something that you expected to see I've never heard of that. And did not expect. It was not taught that that could happen. Not only was Russia's cancer not easily curable it could kill her. Potter says it took five rounds of chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant to put her into remission. We have seen something. New and breast implant associated cancer. And I just want us to pay attention to that. It was just an awful experience really the country's three largest breast implant manufacturers told us textured implants have been extensively tested for safety and comply with FDA monitoring. And that patient safety is their top priority. Mentor says the cancer risk is rare with its implants. But that's not good enough for Dr Potter. She won't use them anymore. I won't place them. Actually my practice. We often say at this doesn't pass the sister test doesn't pass the sister test. I e let's give it to your sister. You're not going to give it to your

Yes. I mean, I don't catch the way that it metastasized into a kind of deranged wing of the alright, right? Like a decade later. But like, I I look at what it is. Right. And it's like, yes, we're going to take a kind of data driven approach we're gonna approach human interactions the way. We do video games. And we're going to discover the algorithms that underlie sort of human, motivation, behavior and psychology. Yeah. And and sort of we're going to use a kind of Milan, Chicago, very clever and medically is very intelligent Milan. Just sort of evolutionary psychology and the various ideas about how human behavior that are floating around in the author of the culture of that time, right and fairly described as a misogynistic sure movement. I mean, just kind of women want a strong evolutionary won a strong alpha male. Come and tell them what to do want. They want a male of higher status Rame selves. Right. And I mean that that this characterizes the the beginnings of this pick, right? And so it was all about like demonstrating your higher value and doing that through the nag and nag for the audience is like, basically sort of a disk dislike underhanded. Yeah. It's an a backhanded compliment. That's actually a bit of a dish purposes to lower the self esteem of the prisoners speaking with. The woman. And of course, it makes them come to regard you as in relative terms to have higher status than themselves. And you know, this kind of this kind of entered. I think this is the thing that enter the culture at large as you know, if you read stunned doll reading, the red in the back whack like, you know, he had an understanding of the heck, right? And they sort of like reverse engineered and created in their own kind of like nerd ish autistic way, and what is interesting is a group of computer, scientists and engineers who sort of like approached the human human social interaction as a kind of big data problem. They kinda sorta solve it. It kind of kinda sorta works. I is just a hack, right? Yeah. You have the mentality. I'm playing a game in my social relations. You know, you sort of like inoculate yourself against the fear of rejection because people who play games are used to to losing. Right. And then and then you get better and you develop your skill. So it takes this kind of like very masculine kinda Like like. skill building. Like nerd ish. Like sort of Aspar burger, Ian approach to and whether or not there's a way that you can sort of because we all have this idea that like human relations are about spontaneity and about like real connection and emotions and is there a way to like hack that. And so they figured out a way that sort of like got them. What begins as kind of like contrived and sort of like based upon bits and routines. A person starts to sense the like the flow of human interaction and like human like real connection can emerge from that. But because it's occurring within this context of like you and your broS playing a game where you're all keeping score. Like, that's that becomes this kind of like homo heraldic competition. Women are only counters. You know in the game like t-, then takes over and I'm going to have real human contact emerges like real connection emerges. Then it introduces a kind of cognitive dissonance that might send you spinning off run the game. And of course, that typically happens most people who play, but there's this notion in the game of one Itis, right, which is like, you know, the the air of thinking that any particular person or any real connection is meaningful. And that's why of course, it is like openly at explicitly. But also the deeply sociopathic. It's crazy. It was it was a kind of. I'm not saying it was inevitable. But like it was an emergence of the internet of its time. And it was an emergence of the kind of sexual dynamics of its time which have since like iterative, and and degraded and generated into a kind of like warfare between the genders, and the the metoo movement is a kind of registration of a general culture wide rejection of those kinds of..

I mean, it's things like a aids cancer, very serious conditions that that are getting reversed and removed, and you know, one thing we talk about so much at live happy's things like mindfulness and compassion gratitude and how they can help you live a richer life and have better wellbeing, but you really dig into it and explain how our thoughts affect us physically. So how will practicing things like mindfulness or gratitude effect as in our physical space? It will affect us dramatically and it shows up in terms of disease by penalty and lone Javed.

Worn turkeys and Basseterre to Washington Use has nothing to negotiate until a detained American passer is free that adds fuel to the fire with Turkey's financial meltdown deepening here's how, one of our guest described the situation early on bloomber whatever. Way we look at it now Tokyo's fried roasted stuff there in huge huge difficulty. Because. There's no easy path in front of them. They're going to have. To raise rates at some point is absolutely going to collapse Metastasized into a financial crisis if they do raise rates they. Have an economic crisis and that's also going to put downward pressure on the currency Let's get some additional inside with our. Emerging markets liter leader 'Boudzhi she joins us around the Dubai set Donna. We had some commentary from an executive board member of the Bundesbank. Verbally he saying what the Turkish government needs to do as initiate bold, action and that's pretty much. Consensus for the most part of this market you look at the lira it stabilizes stabilized for quite? A while now but the, next eighteen hours what comes, next in this process from from the feedback you've been getting Bloomberg reported yesterday that apparently the economies are. Is going to be on a call with investors on August sixteenth. Now this is an important development because even though he's been speaking publicly, the assumption is that he's. Going to give investors some sort of reason to calm down now he As I said he has in fact spoken before but what people wanna see our specifics people want to know what the plan is they don't, want to hear big words about how the economy is gonna grow and how they're going to fight this economic war against. Turkey, they want to know exactly what Turkey is going to do in, order to maintain independence with the central Bank and in order to win back investor confidence. I suppose Last. Night I? Mean they've taken shock tactics new Hyde another five percent on rates. Nothing yet of, that magnitude from Turkey one talk, about contagion this is in the library. For our viewers FX ball is at the. Highest is when he's seventeen this is the correlation between the lira and the rest of the markets my question to you is this I. Know that you probably have a bit of a laugh with me is the Turkey crisis getting old is this one at moment spike and it's going, to, dissipate aggressively You know I think I think. A lot of people were worried that maybe, the might be some contagion across emerging markets, but as the crisis in Turkey unfold more and more people are starting to realize, that this is really a Turkey problem the issues and, Turkey, aren't really prevalent across emerging markets and as as we have seen with. Argentina central. Banks across, emerging markets are in, fact willing, to act in order to, ensure that investors do have confidence in. Their ability to not. Just deal with immediate problems but also to. Stay ahead of the curve and that's the point us. If we had we had Oppenheimer away into this as well and they. Would agree with you that this is a crisis that's specific to Turkey and there's not necessarily that risk of a wider contagion Dan in? Terms of resilience who is better off than others at the moment Well I mean it's much easier Kosei who is not better off I mean what you're really, what you're really looking for is runaway inflation and whether or not the central banks are willing to deal with them for. Instance the two highest inflation's that we have in emerging. Markets are in Turkey and Argentina of the, to Argentina has been willing to act quickly Turkey however investors aren't sure how they're going to deal with that and just bear in mind even though I mean well, Turkey's inflation is near sixteen percent the emerging. Market averages about two point eight percent so, you know what we're what we're looking at, here is you know you've got some very interesting real rates across emerging markets but, not in those areas where inflation is high Donna thank, you, so much for being with us a myself this morning that is done About two g. or measuring markets, team leader resident in to buy one invest Bloomberg, spoke. To you this morning says that there's even bigger threats to the. Markets been tacky As things stand I don't think Turkey they have the potential At the. Moment I think I can titrate impacts at its every. Limited I'm concerned about other things going on in the world Donald. Trump does next with. Respect to the parish Let's bring in Andrew Jackson. Head of Asia ex Japan equities and fund manager Janice. Henderson investors he joins us from saying the poor Great to have. You with us this morning Andrew so what? About gas a little bit early say Turkey, is fried it is roasted it, is stuffed, how. Contained is the Turkey in the oven Good morning to you Look I think broadly in agreement with Donna's comments that we're not really seeing a contagion broader markets in terms of the economic fundamentals of what we are. Seeing contagion to send and that's why we've seen a flight. To US dollar asset so we've seen some short-term selling off in emerging markets where there could be some contagion Knows you're not markets. Where they have large current account deficits and large levels of the US dollar. Borrowings the good news for me is an x Japan investors we don't have the same issues within Asia. We do have, some economies like Indonesia, we've seen the currency under pressure this year is a. Result, because their current account deficit has been widening and I think that has breach two percent also in the most recent data so I believe that Turkey's relatively contained we're not. Gonna see a huge impact to the fundamentals wean Asia but. Of course in the short term the markets are more worried about sentiment rather than fundamentals When you look at the trade. Relationship Andrew talking about one percent of exports Turkey and China so that puts it all a little bit. Into perspective Turkey, in broader Asia still, though let's assume that this scenario deteriorates and Turkey and Scares quite a few investors around the world. How do you play anxiety and ripple effect through the m from Asia equities, perspective, there, has to be a way to capitalize on this Sure Clearly within is your extra. Parent you could decide to allocate an active. Managers we're looking to outperform l. benchmark attention is going to focus on those economies that have much stronger fiscal positions that we're going to talk about the Chinese economy. Later clearly the issues in in, China more, inward looking and more domestic focused on on de. Leveraging if you look at their current account position and the fiscal, position generally they look very. Attractive, similarly markets like Thailand within a southeast Asia. Context they accounted account position and surplus looks very. Attractive so there's definitely opportunities for stock pickers in this environment because you're seeing broad-based sell-off eight equities and all of the companies are going to suffer as a.

"Now I have a great affinity A great affinity for products like SuperBeets. And also certain medical advances That use products that use advances to create a healthy body Now what am I talking about Well. I'll tell you over the weekend I learned about some incredible. Advances, we've made in fighting cancer And particularly renal cancer are e. NFL cancer And, I know our food pharmaceutical companies come under. Vicious attack that they're, making too much money it's the same media the same politicians, who destroy everything wanted destroy them drug companies Many. Of you feel that, are drugs are too expensive but let me tell, you something The vast majority of research that's done by, these companies winds up with nothing But when they come up. With something it is a big deal for the quality of life and longevity And they've done this, when it comes to renal cancer that metastasized is in somebody's body And they have developed an infusion And, I think you've. Seen these commercials they're very quick they're not very detailed on TV that shows a healthy human, cell devouring killing a cancer cell And. They've come up with this infusion there was just approved by the FDA not too long ago Of two drugs Because the, cancer cell tricks. They healthy cell I'm doing this, as a pedestrian but I'm just making a point The, cancer cell tricks they healthy cells And, how does it do it it tricks the healthy cells, by presenting itself as, a healthy cell Presenting itself, as a healthy cell so your immune system and the healthy cells do? Not attack, the cancer cell and he keeps spreading growing and killing So they had to figure out How to expose the. Cancer cell to the healthy cell so the healthy cells would see it. As a danger and attack it That's what they've invented In addition they've invented Another drug That jacks up. Your system That strengthens your immune system particularly when your elderly and your immune system isn't. What it used to be it's more and more difficult to fight, various illnesses and so forth And so they've created Suchitra and now they combine these drugs In an infusion that goes directly into your system To kill. These, cancer cells that have metastasized in the body again a certain type of cancer But it is the cutting edge it's brand, new it's now on the market it's something they've. Been developing for years and years and, years and, it's cost them an enormous amount of money and now they will be. Saving, lives improving lives lengthening lives It, really works It really works So I'm probably one of the lone voices in defending. Our pharmaceutical companies And I would ask Bernie Sanders Where do these drugs come from Scandinavia. No they don't come from Scandinavia They, come from large pharmaceutical companies Not a socialist paradise All they know how to do is, redistribute regulate and tax In this country we invent we create We save lives That's what. These companies do. They save lives This is. A miracle drug And there. Will be more many more As they Develop a better and better understanding of the human body The the, good aspects work, in the hell the other ones work it's absolutely incredible It gives a. Lot of people a. Lot of hope This was not available a short time ago Seven or eight years ago they would have hit you with chemo and radiation rack your body and maybe would help a little bit maybe wouldn't they just weren't sure And so before we destroy another magnificent private sector institution let's think about it okay That's think.

Drugs are really going to cure a, lot of, patients you're, you're an oncologist. Correct yes yes This is a. Brand new I mean I'm not. Overstating that my doctor no you're not, you're not in fact not only for kidney cancer bladder cancer for a number of other cancers when these drugs were they worked dramatically well they don't work everybody. And I don't want to give people false hope works about, really in about one in four patients but what it does it's well this latest combination works in about eighty five percent. Of, the cases they, believe? Yep, Yep The interesting, thing is is that this combination of the I sick you're talking about you're just turn. It, down That is the, one I'm talking about yeah Europe just started die for it just shows you the differences in the systems. And There was a lot of. Disappointment in the oncology community did not get accepted And they even, have some some really unbelievable pills that. People take, if the infusion, isn't they've. They don't react well to, the infusion I mean oral pills again nothing's perfect, they have some side effects but who would have thought that ten years ago Well. It just shows you what, team vestment and research does and what the head force and it's an enormous expense people just, need to understand in most of the. Time they, come up empty, I look. At look at the amount, of investment in research they're doing now in Alzheimer's Absolutely and and for the most part but not not. Exclusively they're coming up empty empty but they're making progress a little bit here. And there I study a lot of this just because that's. What I do and yeah A lot. Of it's learning how to use, the drugs had elite use them properly, if you look back, into the nineteen sixties, about some. Of the drugs we use them we really. Didn't. Know the right dosage in the, right schedules and as, as the research developed we, were able to cure for example to stick.

"Now I have a great affinity A great affinity For products like SuperBeets and also, certain medical advances That use products they use advances to create a healthy body I want my talking about Well I'll. Tell you over the weekend I. Learned about some incredible advances. We've made in fighting cancer And particularly renal cancer r.. E. n. e. l. cancer And I know our food pharmaceutical companies. Come under vicious attack, that they're making too much money it's the same media the, same politicians who destroy everything wanted destroy them drug companies And I know many. Of you feel that, are drugs are too expensive but let me tell, you something The vast majority of research that's done by, these companies winds up with nothing But when they come. Up with something it is a big deal for quality of life and longevity And they've done this, when it comes to renal cancer that metastasized in somebody's body And, they have developed an infusion And, I think you've. Seen these commercials they're very quick they're not very detailed on TV that shows a healthy human, cell devouring killing a cancer cell And. They've come up with this infusion there was just approved by the FDA not too long ago Of two drugs Because the cancer cell. Tricks they healthy so I'm doing this, as a pedestrian but I'm just making a point The, cancer cell tricks they healthy cells And, how does it do it it tricks the healthy cells. By presenting itself has. A healthy cell Presenting itself as healthy so so your immune system and the healthy cells do? Not attack, the cancer cell and it keeps spreading growing and killing So they had to figure out How to expose the. Cancer cell to the healthy cells so the healthy cells would see it. As a danger and attack it That's what they've invented In addition they've invented Another drug That Jack's up. Your system That strengthens your immune system particularly when your elderly and your immune system isn't. What it used to be it's more and more difficult to fight various illnesses and so forth And. So they've created such a trap and now they've combine these drugs In an infusion that goes directly into your system To. Kill, these cancer cells had metastasized in the body again a certain type of cancer But it is. The, cutting edge it's brand new It's now. On the market It's something they have been developing for, years and years and years and it's cost them. An enormous amount of money and now, they will, be saving. Lives improving lives lengthening lives It, really works It really works So I'm probably one of the lone voices in defending. Our pharmaceutical companies And I would ask Bernie Sanders Where do these drugs come from Scandanavia no They don't come from Scandinavia They. Come from large pharmaceutical companies Not a socialist paradise All they know how to do is, redistribute regulate and tax In this country we invent we create We save lives That's what. These companies do. They save lives This is. A miracle drug And there. Will be more many more As they Develop a better and better understanding of the human body The the. Good aspects work, in the how the other ones work it's absolutely incredible It gives a lotta people. Out of hope This was not available a short time ago Seven or eight years ago they would have hit you with chemo and radiation rack your body. And maybe it.
