as she waits for an urgent appointment at the local breast clinic in North Wales Yet despite the pandemic 85% of patients in England wait only two weeks for their urgent suspected cancer The prime minister is going to face a series of questions now in parliament Tom and this is going to get pretty heated over what happened in spring of last year And for a lot of people reducing to this as just a drink in the garden with colleagues For a lot of people around that period Tom who lost loved ones couldn't attend funerals Couldn't meet the birth of their grandchildren Their babies This has been a massive massive issue in this country and will continue to be so in the coming weeks and months John is there an American equivalent I just don't see it at the white can't imagine President Biden going through this exercise but do you see an American equivalent No right now No Tom Not right now no The prime minister is going to face some questions for the next 30 minutes or so and tell him if there's any headlines we'll bring them to you The main event stateside 8 30 Eastern Time CPI in America from the pandemic to the inflation pressure we've seen off the back of it Lisa 7% is the estimate Yeah and how much is it actually changed the narrative which already is for a stickier pace of inflation How much is it going to be the 7 hand all the sort of shock factor of seeing inflation at that high of a rate versus the underlying components I keep going back to this How much do we need to see a transmission from the goods inflation to the services inflation in order to give rise to the stickier feel that we keep hearing The fed conversation that makes it a big way as well Let's get to the equity market at 5 40 S&P up a little more than a tenth of 1% on the NASDAQ 132 of two tenths of 1% yields on ten four 28 yield tire by almost a basis point Joining us now Sebastian pays CIO and head of global multi asset at hero price Sebastian let's start with that inflation print a little bit later this morning What are you looking for sir We have a range of view at our firm and pretty much everywhere about inflation 7% looks reasonable That's the consensus When we discuss in our asset allocation committee where are we expect to CPI to print year over year at the end of this year Our base case is 3% but we think risks are skewed to the upside And for that you really have to watch the supply chain factors And they're pretty confusing Jonathan right The Baltic dry index is actually down 60% from its peak the cost of shipping stuff But then you have a hundred ships in the ports of Los Angeles You have only Kron creating more and more issues Jonathan you mentioned people not showing up for work at the airport A third of the workforce for united mentioned this earlier So the supply chain remains a puzzle the New York fed is put out an index of supply chain pressures and their narrative is that it speaking but when you look at the data I don't see it I have it on the Bloomberg It just keeps going up So we think the risks are skewed to the upside and we've positioned our portfolios to be short duration Sebastian page the heritage of tyrol price is absolutely unique You guys invented growth you invented sector analysis on the buy side I go back to roger mcnamee and what you guys did in technology T wrote price right now in honor of roger mcnamee on American technology and American growth stocks Am I long At the moment in our asset allocation portfolios we have tilted towards value and we like being long cyclicality because it's a relative valuation call and also a macro call based on the economy Now Tom I got to be really really clear We still believe in the role of technology We're still diversified between growth and value But as asset allocators we think the cyclicality is so underpriced all time extremes in terms of relative valuations It's already sort of playing out so far this year And you have rising rates which is good for financials or analysts on the platform or upgrading financials So that's our position tactically Sebastian how much is that call for value Hinge on this idea that the fed will not be forced to move too quickly will not necessarily become or move to a restrictive monetary policy and that the data will cooperate and allow them to do so You know it's interesting because over the last few weeks Visa we've priced in quite a bit of additional fed hawkishness right Now we're talking about four rate hikes If I go on wi RP on my Bloomberg I see three and a half rate hikes for 2022 Powell yesterday confirmed or talked about balance sheet runoff and the markets reacted okay to that So the question is is the fed going to be hawkish or not It's more can the feds still surprise on the hawkish side relative to what's priced in at the moment Our views the direction of travel for rates is higher this year and that's why we're short duration But what we really are looking at right now are the long-term dots There are two and a half percent They've been at two and a half percent since 2019 Will the long term dots change And that could be the kind of tailor risk hawkish surprise It's very hard to bring those up because we've piled on so much debt over time We had 10 trillion treasuries outstanding around the global financial crisis We have 30 trillion treasuries outstanding now How have we done that We've done that by lowering rates such that death service If you plotted on the same chart it's almost a flat line So you get trapped every time you add debt and we've added a lot in terms of government debt You handcuff yourself in terms of where the rates can end up So that is where the surprises could come but nonetheless our positioning right now is towards longer rates High rates Sebastian page of T Rowe price Really summarizing the big debate right now in the bond market and on the dot plot Sebastian thank you sir Thank you very much What a bill Dudley called it earlier this week Lisa the long dot the 2024 dart to be precise You think he called it fantasyland Yeah fantastic That basically they thought that it was going to stay so low However on the other side you have Stephen major and going back to that note this morning where he talked about perhaps going along the short end and seeing some value there And seeing a further sell off at the long end that's a tactical trade He still has the same view that we just heard from Sebastian page that long-term rates can not go up that high simply because of the amount of debt and how difficult it is to get to that higher terminal rate no longer term basis This is the.

So than dominic variables being able to use the clone of virus pandemic. I think question about how much time she can. Devote the qualities. Brief is a very interesting one. Because prime ministers often appoint people to the foreign office they want to get out of the country and not be too much doing too much leadership plotting. But i think she has a particular view on qualities and she started off life as a liberal democrat as you mentioned campaigning. Greenham common but now she's libertarian. Conservative very different to say the dean who owns a social conservative list intensely relaxed on social issues. How people want to live their lives. Imagine that as she described an interview she has a very particular view of equality and how to achieve that she sees about empowering individuals not using the state to address some of the long stunning inequality.

Or is it just something. We shouldn't really make note of the retention of critique silence claim second free promotion of mistrust as foreign secretary does play to call them because they're both considered very much stories and it comes at a time when worship criticized for being unconservative because of his health and social candy that many tax rise in that whole wrong more labor lights than play the toy showers.

I thought yesterday as i spy squirmy larva in our oatmeal trash to cocoon infested spaghetti box and swatted at the winged disgustingness. Flying out of my pantry if people knew about this nastiness i thought as i got out my hand held vacuum to clean crumbs from deep dark web corners of our shelves ping just then. I got a text from a new friend thanking me for a thank you card. I sent her. I texted back. You're welcome with a hard emoji. His inner a few times and then typed current situation colon pantry. Moths send my pastor calls that being one hundred percent known. My new friend responded that she was so sorry and shared that she dealt with pantry moths many years ago and then it was no fun. Yep nastiness confirmed whitney one time just one time. This classy ladies dealt with pantry. Moth thought while mrs nasty here has dealt with them. How many times over the last twelve years. But then i received another text from her. This woman that i barely knew this woman who is far as i could tell had it all together shared with me that the night before. She heard a loud kathak on her nightstand and saw brown slash out of the corner of her eye adrenaline pumped through her veins as she spotted the largest roach she had ever seen. It was huge. She texted me. Spelling huge with a y j-. I chuckled to myself. As i pictured her frantically swatting and bravely her adjective but i fully agree with its use in the circumstance bravely. Picking up the four inch roach disposing of it in the toilet. All while her husband her protector slept peacefully in bed. Just a few feet away quite honestly in this pinchers perfect instagram filtered world. I think a lot of women would sooner admit to murder than a roach in her house. But i believe my pantry. Moss confessions shattered the pretense between my new friend and me and why should there be pretense among believers anyway christians pretending that there's something they're not pretending that they're better than they actually are. Only lessons are testimony. As if we don't need jesus as saving power as much as the next guy. Yes confession before. God is what matters most but false fronts. Don't help anyone. Does the person putting on a false front question whether or not the grace of our lord is sufficient to cover. His sin does his fronting benefit his brother in christ alone in his sentence struggle.

"Nick. And i'm mary record coming next on the world and everything in it. The old interview. Today conversation with author and educator gene edward christian family is looking for public education. Alternatives have a growing list of options. But how should parents evaluate. Those choices fee offers some helpful advice. Here's editor and chief. Marvin olesky let starwood basics. What should parents look for in christian school. Well two things. Christianity of course. And that's not always something you can take for granted but also it'd be a real school the it's it's actually teaching substance. Teaching content is a place to learn knowledge. So let's say a parent is is aware of the decline of public schools and has decided. I'm going to send my child to a christian school. What are the things apparent. Should particularly be looking for when the reformers started the project of universal education to try to get every christian to be able to read the bible for themselves. The kind of schools say opened were classical christian schools and the result was not only could read the bible well and Education was given to peasants into to women and It was an education flourishing but because it was a classical education. I'm like did. They read the bible. They could do a lot of other things. In that tied into the social mobility the came of the reformation with the economic explosion that came Of following the reformation and it just a very powerful approach to to learn any even some christian schools. That aren't classical hand. Just be centers for indoctrination. Indoctrination comes from a good word doctrine. And it's important to put doctrine in students but some christian schools. That's pretty much all they do for good education. It's good to in addition to the two good solid cata cases to teaching students about the world. God has made the history of the nation history of of the world. it doesn't present. Christianity is just a narrow little thing that we're walling off from the rest of reality rather christianity's the bigger reality that embraces every kind of knowledge every kind of truth and a school that has that perspective. I think it'd be most effective including in preserving and transmitting the faith because when when the student comes from that from that very narrow background and they never been exposed to anything. The challenges that they often are ill-equipped when they are out in the world and they come across these ideas. They come across these other. They don't know how to do them and they come out sometimes with the sense that christianity is just this narrow little ideology that they want to escape as soon as they can and so a good christian education is is bigger than that because christianity is bigger than that so when a parent is is checking out of school. What are say three questions that the parents should be sure to ask. Well i'd like to ask about the the reading lists what the students read at the different levels now. It might be classics of the past classic works. That's a good sign. It doesn't have to be necessarily but are they reading exclusively contemporary works Works with an obvious ideology behind them. That's a good test. Look reading lists so check. The reading list teach history rather than social studies. Well that's a good good sign. Yeah just what they call. Subjects that can be can be telling well. Let me ask about this. One question parents often have you'd expect to see some emphasis on creation rather than evolution. Okay yeah what kinds of questions should parents ask about that. Well right ask about the science curriculum. see what they do with science. See how they handle. Evolution and creation. There are christian schools that Say we teach creation inner theology classes but we teach evolution in our science classes. Here's part of the genius of a classical approach education. It ties knowledge together. Progressive education is highly specialized and and even when it teaches multiple subjects. They're taught in isolation and you study one different area and then you take another class. It teaches another area and they have nothing to do with each other What that does is to sort of fragment to the the mind and a lot of times people come out with knowing a lot about very little and they haven't been exposed to anything else. A part of the classical approach is to tie things together so you have to see. The science course has to accord and relate to the theology course and what we learn about creation in your bible class has to shape how you approach the natural world and it's wonders in the science classes. I think it's helpful for schools again to give a good education to tell make students aware of the the contrary worldviews out there. And that's the way for them not to be influenced by them because a lot of times otherwise. They'll think that's the answer. That's the only truth. Be the my christian. School was shelter me from this They must not have wanted me to know.

"And they're giving out medical exemption sparingly to back its position. The cdc sites study at conducted earlier this summer when the delta variant was not prevalent in the united states it looked at patients in kentucky and found that unvaccinated. People are more than twice as likely to get reinfected with kobe. Nineteen than those who are fully vaccinated now as the delta variance spreads the. Cdc says vaccines are also the best protection against the strain. Even though new data shows pfizer's jab only stopped symptoms in sixty six percent of vaccinated people. That's instead of the previous ninety percent. Dr amy shahala is a senior scholar at the johns hopkins university center for health security. He says despite reduced protection against the delta variant vaccines are still doing their most important job. What we know is that our vaccines are holding up against the delta various when it comes to what matters serious disease hospitalization and death but dr donald believes natural. Immunity is worth something. I'm somebody that advocates people who have had some level of immunity be not considered exactly the same someone who is not vaccinated at all or has no prior immunity and there is data to suggest that maybe a single dose of the two doses pfizer and madonna vaccines may be sufficient for a personal with prior and unity to have as robust immunity as someone that's been vaccinated new research also points to the benefits of natural immunity especially against the delta variant. An oxford university study released this month. Look at how the pfizer and astrazeneca vaccines fared against the strain. The research concluded that people who had been vaccinated and had been previously infected with kovic nineteen had the most protection and a new study in israel. That isn't peer reviewed. Yet looked at seventy thousand cova. Nineteen patients researchers found that patients who just got two doses of the pfizer vaccine. Were six to thirteen times more likely to be reinfected than those with just natural immunity but again the strongest immunity was found in those who had been previously infected and had been given at least one dose of a vaccine still. Dr doll says overall vaccines provide a more standardized immune response against all of the corona by restraints the natural immunity alone. The vaccines contain the genetic material for the spike protein which causes the immune system data very concentrated ineffective immune response against the spike protein. Which seems to be the most important aspect of our immunity and although there's different immunity that's induced when you're naturally infected. It doesn't seem that they're as important as having a really robust response against the spike protein. Which is what the vaccine delivers but some countries are treating natural immunity as equal to vaccines at least for now. Italy requires a digital green pass to enter public places like restaurants museums and gems. Who's eligible for a pass. Doug badger is a public policy analyst at the heritage foundation through groups of people one those who have been vaccinated to those who have no certification that they have recovered from the infection within the past six months after six months the country no longer counts are recovered person as immune right now. Studies disagree over. How long natural immunity lass as they are also questioning how long vaccine immunity lasts. Badger says like italy naturally immune people should also be allowed to function as normal in the united states but officials here haven't made documenting natural immunity priority. Cdc has never encouraged for example. A doctor to give a recovered patient. A note or some certification or a local public health agency to give the certification that john doe recovered from coverted as of june fourth. Twenty twenty one. We have little cdc cards those of us who have been vaccinated but we don't have any thing that we carry around two documents that we recover from infection that makes it more difficult for schools hospitals and businesses to figure out who falls into what categories never infected recovered and vaccinated but recovered in nineteen patients. Like we're chicago. Kemp and experts like dr amadora at johns hopkins. Say it would be a system worth figuring out if the goal is to protect people against cove in nineteen. I think that this should be something.

South Africa suspends use of AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine after it fails to clearly stop virus variant
"South Africa announced it was suspending its rollout of the AstraZeneca Corona virus vaccine. A small clinical trial revealed the shot provided on Lee minimal protection from the virus variant that's widely circulating in the country. Professor Salim Abdul Karim, co chair South Africa's Ministerial Advisory Committee on covert 19. We don't want to end up with a situation where we vaccinated Million people are too many people with a vaccine that may not be effective in preventing hospitalization and severe disease.
South Africa halts AstraZeneca vaccine rollout
"South africa has halted its rollout of the oxford astrazeneca vaccine just a week after the country received. Its first million doses. It seems the vaccine offers limited protection against a new variant of the corona virus. That's now dominant in the country. Salim abdul karim co-chair of south africa's ministerial advisory committee on covid nineteen spoke to a world health organization briefing yesterday. We don't want to end up with a situation where we vaccinated million people too. Many people would have vaccine that may not be effective in preventing hospitalization and severe disease in total more than one point. Two billion corona virus doses have been allocated for the continent. But it's not clear when all those jobs will arrive. The longer any region remains unvaccinated. The greater the chance that more variants arise vaccines though can be tweaked in a formulation of the oxford vaccine targeted at the south african variant could be going into arms by autumn. What scientists cannot address is the long run damage to africa both in human and economic terms so far continent to have been spared from the worst case scenarios predicted early on in the pandemic but the longer term picture remains bleak many ways the impact of the pandemic and africa is worse than it appears on the surface around the official numbers. Kenley salmon is one of our africa correspondent based in dakar. It is the case that having a young population has to some extent protected the continent from the virus africans and died from it that americans europeans but the true scott of infection. Death is really hard to gauge. Studying sudan recently showed the perhaps only two percent of all the covid desk for a quoted in the official tally and the economic impact is worse than it looks last year. The region's economy shrank for the first time. In twenty five years tourism has been badly hit as have commodity exporters things like oil in nigeria and taken together. Gdp per capita fell below twenty ten levels last year so things are perhaps not quite as bad as some other parts the world but certainly still very tough and things may get tougher house. What are the particular challenges to africa. Africa faces quite a number of challenges in the next few years as it tries to recover from the pandemic but the biggest i of the really is vaccines. Some african governments have perhaps failed to grasp the urgency of the situation in tanzania for example the populace president john food even casually cast out with a vaccine work but i do forgive aside claiming the postman precautions such as steaming nation were better than vaccines and even added that if the white man was able to come up with next nations then. Vaccinations for aids. Malaria and cancer would have already been found. So it's not so much a question than of supply. I mean given that quite a few vaccines have been essentially booked at the stage. A number of vaccines have been booked but the big question is when will they arrive because right now there aren't anywhere near the number of axes required forever on in the world and rich countries are of course the front of the queue for those vaccines have been produced africa's going to need perhaps two point six billion doses to vaccinate everyone and those are not being made locally so they have to rely on supplies elsewhere for the moment so that means joining the queue. All this means that whereas rich countries aim to vaccinate most of their people by the middle of this year the african. cdc a public health. Bali in africa's aiming for sixty percent of africans to vaccinated by the end of next year. But even that may be too optimistic. For the poorest countries. The economist intelligence unit sister organization estimates that in most african countries most people will not be inoculated until mid twenty twenty three or even early twenty twenty four and there must be serious consequences of it being that long until the continent is on average vaccinated. Africa is likely. It doesn't get those vaccinations into suffer. Further waves of the infection while after the disease may have amped in the rich world. And that of course will cause more death and more suffering. Doesn't risk that. Having the virus transmitting between people frequently africa could allow new variance to evolve. We've already got the south. African variant and these new variants could endanger people even in rich countries if they prove to be resistant to vaccines and then finally of course not having vaccines could force. African policymakers to continue with these very difficult economic lockdowns curfews even after many other countries around the world set free of those kinds of restrictions and if the public health concern lasts that long then surely the economic concerns will last at least that long. That's right in many african countries facing pretty severe crises at the moment just getting finance to pay their bills. Africa has very limited fiscal space on average countries in sub saharan africa. Spending more than thirty cents on every dollar. They raise and text revenue paying their debts. And that's up from twenty cents on the dollar before the pandemic on the debt side to over half of low income sub saharan african countries are now classed as in distress or at high risk of distress. According to the imf and what about countries with bigger economies the two biggest economies in africa nigeria and south ever both in pretty deep trouble nigeria for example was described by the world. Bank is being an unprecedented crisis. Recently the bank is not normally quite so blunt in nigeria. There has been a legacy of management for a number of years and pandemics really accessible that quite badly. Now focused suggested by twenty twenty three. Gdp per capita may go back as low as it was in one thousand nine hundred eighty time when the oil price was some high on so africa too is in trouble that have been in recession twice in the last three years before the pandemic hit of course now is dribbling itself with a particularly heavy toll from the pandemic so both countries in fact are facing a difficult road out of the crisis. And what about outside help in terms of financing has been quite a bit of outside help although the crisis of course is very big but in twenty twenty the imf for example provided sixteen billion dollars in loans most of that came with relatively few strings attached and this help frigging countries to respond to the pandemic to avoid some of the liquidity crises that were looming the world bank also dispersed another ten billion but many countries got that funding to if the imf under emergency allocations that came quickly and relatively easily and those allocations for many countries will soon be exhausted. The rich world has been trying to help when it comes to debt. They've provided liquidity to countries through some bits of suspension initiative that basically allows poor countries to put off debt repayments until july. Twenty twenty one. This is of course helpful but the trouble is that those payments just suspended and they have to be paid back with interest in about five years time so as the chief economist for africa the world bank put it to us. It may just be kicking the can down the road to. How do you see this playing out. Then how high could the human cost of all this be while the stakes are pretty high. The pandemic has already done lower damage to people's health and africa. it's hitting their economic prospects and they wealth and it's also affecting education of course. Hundreds of millions of students in africa have been affected by school closures. This increases the risk of dropouts and reduces the prospects for africa's largest every generation so overall the costs here really quite significant. There are some reasons for optimism. We may see vaccine rollouts accelerate. There's also hopes that commodity price rises could give africa real boost as the global economy recovers been on balance. The evidence probably points to at pretty difficult road ahead with several more waves of the virus hitting already struggling health systems and perhaps a form of economic long covert in africa. So you know africans have come through this showing remarkable resilience but it may be toughest years are still to come in. Thank you very much for joining us. thank you

"Kfbk now trending high above us this morning, there is a space walk of the way of the international space station. Astronauts are installing a new science platform. It will help with Earth Observation and astrophysics Research. California astronaut Victor Glamour is up there leading the mission this morning. How did I know that you would find a space story for us this morning. I'll sniff it out. With all the talk of recalling governor we wanted to go over just how our recall election would work if this does indeed happen, so you're about to hear from Mary Beth boiling. She's the associate dean of academic affairs and George School of Law, and she outlines right now the process once the signatures meet the threshold, and once those signatures are verified, the secretary of state's office We'll make a notice that the number has been met. Then there is a period of time of 30 days in which a voter can actually withdraw a signature that under the elections code during that time frame. Also, the Department of Finance has to do an estimate of the cost and submit that estimate of how much an election will cost to the chair of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee. Also, they send that to the governor, the lieutenant governor in the secretary of state. Now there is a provision that says when the governor is being Called the Lieutenant governor steps him and is the recipient and does all of the ministerial parts that the governor would otherwise do. Short answer here, Kristina. This is not a cut and paste deal. I mean, there's not a one size fit off system that they're likely in. This case would have to be a special election right because we're not in an election year correct. And so it's basically up to the secretary of state to start the thing in motion within about 60 days, no more than a 80 days to at least to start to set the rules as to win the actual election would take place. But Dean Moylan also warns there are many costs associated with the recall election, most of its state funded Even if the attempt to remove Governor Newsome fails. There's some interesting questions that come up about that, too, because obviously there's not a lot of time for campaigning for the people who are trying to replace the recall Day officer. But Article two section 18 of the California Constitution gives permission to if the officer is not recalled. So if this recall effort got enough signatures, But if the vote was no, we do not want to recall Governor Newsome. He could actually be reimbursed by the state for his election expenses. So in addition to the cost that the state would have for putting together a special election, which again the Department of Finance would come up with an estimate of how much it would cost, and the Legislature has to fund there could also be caused if it is Failed a town Okay. Special election not cheap when it will happen, not defined. The ball gets going within 60 to 80 days from the secretary of state following mid March. If indeed they have enough signature, it could all be over by summer. It could be It depends on when the secretary of state determines when we should be holding the special election. Then you have a whole bunch of people were going to get in. I mean, there were more than 20. I think when one Schwarznegger one. They had a little bit longer time, though. Okay? Yeah, it's it's ambiguous. Okay, It's not clear cut, but that's how it will roll out. That's what we know now. Okay, well, we'll have to see if they achieved those those markers for signatures by march. All right, let's get outside and check traffic. Now, my noble standing by with more This report is right by El Grove Honda. We have a tree down on Pharaoh's Boulevard. Fishies want both ways.

David Price on Colonel John Haslet's World
"David price. Thank you for joining me on the american revolution. Podcast thank you very much. It's a pleasure to be here. you're here today. Because britain a new book. About colonel john hazlet. What prompted you to write a book about john has let at. How important is he to the story of the american revolution. Well the genesis of this book. Mike was my first literary effort rescuing the revolution on sung patriot. Heroes in their ten. Crucial days are america's war for independence. John has was one of several individuals who i profiled in that book in a series of graphical vignettes which focused primarily on the contributions that each of these people need to patriot caused during what was perhaps the ten most inspirational days in american history. And perhaps the most pivotal moment in the war for independence. Now why did i choose hizbullah. Well you know. His name kept popping up in various things that i was reading most especially in a hackett fischer's pulitzer prize winning work. Washington's crossing which is the bible for people like me who are historical interpreters or so case graphs historical interpreters. I washington crossing historic park. That's a joke. By the way you have to read that book and you have to have a decent command. Say the material in order to be able to give a tour there under the auspices of a fringe group. So the more read about him. The more i was impressed by what he did. And and the kind of character he displayed in the course of his revolutionary service. So around the time that. I was reading that book and i guess the germ if you will of the seed when he's right. Metaphor here have been planted. The perhaps do something a little more elaborate on has land. And i came across the book by fred walters. John has led a useful one. Which far as i know. That was the only book that about him. It's a self published work came out. I believe in two thousand and five. Mary engaging read. I enjoyed it immensely. But it's written in the form largely not entirely but largely in the form of a historical novel. There's a good deal of well. Frankly fictional material an air imaginary dialogue scenes useful information to improve to be very helpful to me my initial reaction after reading. That was well. Fred has the subject covered pretty well. And i don't need to pursue curl has let any further the more i thought about it. The more i felt it deserved an effort by someone to craft more conventional kind of a non fiction work about curl and his delaware regiment now. I should add parenthetically that since his first book. Fred walters did polish. What i gather is a more conventional work and non fiction account. Biography of the kernel which i believe is entitled. John has lots eric journey. But it was published exclusively in a kindle edition. I decided to go ahead and pursue this idea of trying to write a book. Hamlet just to see you know when i was starting out i was just with the mindset of well. Let's see how this goes and what looks like and it wasn't challenge to produce something. That is a book length. Because as i pointed out in the preface to the book. There's not a lot known about his pre-revolutionary war life. We don't even know exactly when it was born is a someone about whom an agent is to in the preface or introduction. We don't even know exactly what he looks like. Physical descriptions of him but there's no authentic rep visual representation of inviting eighteen artists. Not by anyone. Who was alive when he was only two images that. I'm aware which i discussed under book. Which is the coverage. The stanley arthurs painting a reversal of the image of has lead in the stanley arthurs painting that hangs in the delaware public archives building. But in any case i could push ahead with the project so ultimately when it became was an effort to inter we three things one is the has the biography. One is the story of his seventeen seventy six regimen the first incarnation of delaware regimen with a little bit about the proposed hasler regimen is the reconstituted regimen in non truncated form that was created in seventeen seventy seven after his death and then a last name of courses or general one. It's quitting this whole context of the seventeen seventy six campaign. washington's army the new york and the campaign. Which of course culminates in what we call the ten crucial days campaign from december twenty fifth. Seventeen seventy six through january. Seventeen seventy seven. When has what has killed about princeton. The other thing. I think that was pushing me to do. This was at some point. When i was writing the second book it occurred needed. It would be a neat idea. If i could do a trilogy on the ten crucial days. I'm not aware that any other offer done. So what distinguishes has led from anyone else in terms of his contribution to the patriot. Cause well he created one of the elite regiments and continental army in seventeen. Seventy six as i believe the largest regiment in the army in the early months of that year they started recruiting january by me erupt. Almost eight hundred men. They were full uniformed. And i think they were. Perhaps the only regimen in the army that could make claimed for uniform to fully armed under has let's to of his agitate thomas holland formerly of his britannic majesty's army day molded these this forced into a efficient elite fighting unit. Bouffe or get too much into the details of the door blues. I wanna ask one thing you said. We don't know much about hamlet's prewar life. We do that. He came from northern ireland right and that he settled in kent county delaware. Do we have any information about why he left ireland and why he settled in delaware. Well he may have had personal indoor political reasons leaving ulster when he did his wife died his first wife got about five years before he came to the colonies which he did in seventeen fifty seven or thereabouts. Minor standing as they may have personal issues between him and members of the congregation. Her guests may have had an emotional toll on him. Such that believe she dialed probably died in childbirth so he was left with a young daughter. This may have taken a toll on him and as such impacted his ability to perform his ministerial duties. And that may lead to some ancient. Shall we say between young minister and members of his parish more generally when he came to the colonies. it was in the context of this larger immigration movement. If you will of the scotch-irish from northern ireland to the new world during the early and mid eighteenth century with was because of the harsh economic into the adverse economic conditions under which many of them live in the restrictions rather onerous restrictions have been imposed on him by british policy towards ireland towards the presbyterian church that was regarded as unwelcome adversary adversaries. You will to the established anglican church. So i think there's a plausible logger be made. That was part of. let's motivation. Maybe dominant part of his motivation.
Friendships at Work and Beyond with Shasta Nelson
"I've been studying friendship now for twelve years really specifically, I passionate relationships in general but I found myself looking at US some studies coming out talking about specifically at a time for women, how significant their friendships were to their health into their happiness, and yet I was looking around at all of us being so obsessed with the parent child relationship and the romantic relationships, and like we were buying thousands of books and we were like, who am I if I don't have these relationships and it was like that was just like the we think of them as they the kind of things we need in our lives and yet the research shows that those things. Actually aren't always that great happiness and our health and traditionally haven't always been that way and that our friendships that Matt make such a difference I found myself kind of in that space where I was looking around being like, why aren't people talking about this more? Why aren't people doing research on this? Why are we not finding resources for people and that's really what kind of just put me in that space I wasn't because I knew that much about it was because I was. Asking the questions and just trying to find resources for people people I was working with and stop and ever since then I've been reading and devouring and learning, and listening, and teaching, and writing books, and speaking, and gathering up, you know most of its with women and This book puts me a little bit broader. I'm doing more co ED, which is actually very cool too because I've long felt that men I think this is one of the reasons why they die younger than women. And and I think this is why I think men need. I don't think it's a women's issue. I think it's a human need and so I'm really excited to be talking about it in broad terms to but yeah friendship is like the thing. The thing and you actually have a ministerial decree. Don't you approaching this from a really sort of holistic perspective yet my training as a got a massive divinity and I used to pastor and so it felt like a big veer off the road. But when I, look back on it, I was like that was where I was doing marriage counseling I was training small. Groups here Emmy, as a pastor, you're asking the question, how do I bond community what is community and how do people belong and and really thinking through when somebody walks in the door is visitor what does it mean to actually participate belong and so yeah I've in many ways have always been about community and wanting money all of us to feel that sense of. Your belonging and unfortunately in churches, not all of them but unfortunately, in most churches will you can experience that belonging, but there's a lot of. That, you have to believe a certain thing to belong or you have to behave a certain way to behave behavior. You have to appear a certain way to you know and that kind of never rubbed me right either. So it's really just how do we all as humans get that need to feel connected met and ways where we just feel accepted for who we are. So yeah, that's been a life passion. An and what made you want to tackle the workplace side of it then? Yeah, that's a good question I. so here's the thing. My second book was titled French Missy, and that one was talking about how most of us when we feel lonely and as a word that most of us don't actually even use the name very well. But when we feel like we want something more most of us, it's not we want more interaction or that we need to. Know more people that we need to make new friends. Most of us that we need to, we need to have closer relationships where craving intimacy were craving more meaningful relationships, and so I was noticing that a lot of us when we felt lonely, we were like, Oh, I need to go make friends I need to meet people and I was like, no, you actually know enough people you don't feel known by a few and so you need to let go. And when I teach what deepens relationship one of the three things that deepens relationships is consistent time and shared experiences and repeated interaction and I this won't surprise you at all. The number one thing I heard is I don't have time for that I don't have time to be that consistent I can only meet her for lunch once a month or I can only see them once a year I fly out there or I just don't have time to be on the phone I just over and over and over I don't have time. And I've thought, you know I could do my darndest to like into one more hour week and and that's not going when you see the numbers collectively of sixty one percent of US feeling lonely on a somewhat regular basis I was like I don't think I can talk you into one more hour and that's going to make the biggest difference I. Think we need to tackle. You know work is like two adults. What school is two kids. This is where we're spending time with people where we're interacting. We're making our biggest contribution and I was like, why don't we talk about putting friendship and our whole life as opposed to trying to fit it in his personal life bucket with a thousand other things and to me this is really answering the question of how can we? Get more of our emotional social needs met in the biggest part of our lives in that bucket. So it's answering the question I don't have time. Well you do. Doing. Yes exactly. But but I think a lot of people feel a little weird about that. Right? I mean first, we're accustomed to thinking of life in separate spheres but you one is where we can have this this vulnerability, the intimacy with people in our personal lives. You, know we feel a little bit weird about that in in the workplace is, is it okay to be vulnerable and intimate with people at work? Yeah. Absolutely. It is and it's so interesting because we are uncomfortable with it when I was doing the research about thirty percent of esther like. And yet when asked, how many of us lot a friend almost of us are like Oh. Yes. Please in at work like we're not sure it's appropriate but we want one and also it is it is whether we like it or not. It is the number one place adults are making their friends and so that is happening and the much bigger question is it is happening we need it to happen. What we need to do is talk about it more and teach healthy expectations and set this up so that it's best for the people involved and for the workplace and the research shows it is absolutely. Paramount, not to are not only to our individual health and happiness but to the organizations of who we work, which is really fascinating. I mean there's twenty years of research I mean we're talking. Decades and many many different people studying it in a variety of different ways who say if you have a best friend at work, you are the best employees for the workplace you're more engaged you have better treat the customers better. You're less likely to leave. So we're bringing our turnover costs down. You call in sick last year fewer workplace accidents. I mean, you just look down the list and the people who? Have a best friend at work. Absolutely show up and feel more engaged look forward to Monday morning the Monday morning in air quotes and feel like they wanna feel support it and they feel safer brainstorming they feel safer taking risks they feel safer showing up with the ideas and those last few ideas are examples of vulnerability in the workplace and to your point a lot of us are like. Well, we picture people. Telling personal drama and just being all these heated one last night and we picture `vulnerability and we have like these fears the pop into our head immediately and I do teach incremental slow vulnerability when we're talking about disclosing and I teach how to do that and healthy Safeway But more importantly, vulnerability is what we need in order to brainstorm. It's what we need to say, I, actually don't know the answer to this or I actually need help with this or. Not just diversity inclusion is vulnerability. It's like let me I don't want to just have you be a token different person at the table I. Actually want your differences, the impact art answers here and your story to change what we're trying to do and how you're experiencing this and I'm all. When we actually list everything we want for the workplace and how we will be better together it takes an incredible amount of vulnerability to to do that.
Are Australia's security agencies getting too big?
"Well, you'd have to be living under a rock not to notice that Australia, is radically different security environment than walls just two years ago. The Prime Minister he's locked into the situation to the nineteen thirties, and in the last six months, we've seen a massive increase to the budgets for defense and our intelligence agencies. Now, the external threats are undeniable. You just think of the rising power of China, but are we at risk of undermining our political freedoms by expanding the powers of security agencies too much. Hell big and powerful. Should we let security agencies get? And what kind of oversight exists to ensure that the intelligence is not collected or used for political purposes? What do you think we'll pay the redwoods is the former official historian and the author of several award winning books. He's most recent one is called law politics and intelligence a law of Robert. Hope. Welcome back to the show painter. Thanks very much tom thanks for having me and just into carol she's a visiting fellow and senior research fellow at the national. Security, college it you good to be with you again just enter right to be thanks Tom. Now let's start with the hope commissions in the seventies and eighties Peter. This is your faces take us back to that time. Why are those commissions so important well between the mid seventies in the mid eighties over ten year period three successive Prime Ministers Whitlam Fraser and Hoke commissioned the same man just as good hope to conduct major inquiries into the intelligence agencies What he set up was not just not just any inquiry into a agency in Asia was the declared one and quite controversial that he set up a whole system for the agencies. Sitting out what each what agencies Australia needed, what each one should do, and what should not do how they should interact with each other, how they should interact with departments with individual ministers with the cabinet and cabinet committees and with the international partners Those we now know is five is and he emphasized a number of things. He particularly emphasized the intelligence system should serve the whole of government and not be unduly influenced as it was when he started by one or two very powerful departments, and towards that end, he said that should be a central coordinating agency which would only be invoked with assessment and he allocated collection assessment and dissemination different agencies. this one would be only concerned with assessment on like the American CIA and with its the independence of its. Assessments guaranteed by legislation. To, be independent from ministerial oh departmental. Precious. and. He said a of other things about the relationships between intelligence and lure enforcement agencies. Keeping Intelligence and policy making separate keeping intelligence and law enforcement separate were among the the basic
Addressing Cybersecurity Breaches in a COVID-19 Environment
"Time we were talking in person at the Sava Fusion Center in Sydney and has in the world challenge since we recorded that particular episode and I think it's a really Opportune. Time now, considering accenture has allowed incident response team in various parts of the world but obviously here in the I said Ole side on the tops of attacks the is being used and indeed the motivational the reasons for those attacks I think we might come to you first off the shift in the landscape I've the last few months and particularly since episode one some of the okay from the incident response time. Yes. You'll Chris really really interesting question I'm. I think all follow back to sort of March timeframe when things really starting to get started we saw massive uptake, Immuno covid nineteen themed fishing spear phishing email attacks, which is pretty consistent. With every time we've seen some major political shift or a major incident that gets people's emotions engaged. cybercriminals are pretty quick to the tactics to focus on that to exploit those emotions to get people to. Click on links and install alway but there's absolutely no denying sitting back now in where we end of July and looking back since that time frame it's all about ransomware. It is an absolute epidemic. We are saying certainly strategy. I don't think we've ever seen anything of what we're saying right now but even globally, I, mean there are massive companies just in the last few days Gombe and is all over the price and they've had an unprecedented attack. So I think ransomware is a is a big. Uptick we've seen in terms of changing the threat landscape, but the motivation full that ransomware, and also we've had some federal government, even prime ministerial level announcements in terms of the, but they'd foreign nation state actor motivation, but these ransomware attacks. Ransom crew ransomware crews, running these these campaigns will what what can enterprise be doing? What are you advising your clients in this? And what does what are some of those key controls that enterprise have to stop to get rot? That strike question I think come going back to the whole sort of state basting thread actors in the motivation. What I'm looking at. The question everyone was asking Ileana. These why we sing his uptick you know what's the connection and I've been racking my brain to try to understand what is the connection between the change in circumstances pulse covid nineteen and the increase in ransomware attacks. And what what we've managed to not come off the back of a major incident response way with we're added for sort of full wakes going up against the very threat actor the ICS's sent had only the intelligence reports at-bats June. And what what we sort of fan was during that analysis with different tactics use that I've never seen used before. A lot of the trade crafts very very similar but what we saw will threat actors. The actual attack is doing the attack that to deploy the ransomware with very very unskilled. These were not people who were very sophisticated in terms of their trade craft knowing what they were doing, but they were following a script and they were using automation and so what what I worked at pretty quickly in that sort of analysis was that what we're dealing with the question of why what's the connection but it's how how have threat actors managed to scale operations so quickly and I think it's been a combination of a more automation scripting intend to these attacks in the playbook they using. And possibly more outsourcing in points about the multiple parties they in gold in a ransomware as a service, it's a thing that's used by criminals who break in and gain access to monetize the access that go. So there are different actors during different parts of the service certainly inexperience what's what's been Jimmy leading to this massive uptake is the scale these attackers can now will brian up. So was the to the cut and paste approach, but it wasn't necessarily one act up. More based tools, the automated tools and also some of the services the as you said, the ransomware is a service. Became was it would you? I would the word be unleashed for anyone to use or did you get a sense of was potentially coordination there or was it just? Just. Random tiles in the application of these tools. Now, that's that's a great question. So the ransom web. The to us to make the money to the stuff that actually encrypt dot or an extra traits daughter where you put your, you know your bitcoins into it's an automated platform. There was no human direction. It is literally you get a self service ticket you go up to a you know this this website on the Dogwood you punching you ticket number it tells you how much you need to pay. The whole process is automated, and so that's that's just like A. Sas Platform that the attackers are using to monetize their tax and then the people who do the ransomware extortion they split the proceeds with the attackers had actually broken into the organization and gain the access necessary to deploy the ransomware tools. Now, this first group of people actually breaking, they're the ones where we're seeing a local coordination. So it's not once right active multiple tread actors, but one of the groups that does this figured out how to scale operation that got. Literally play by play. I you run this command then you run that command and they didn't gonNA help this. If you get stuck, there's a website you go to someone can give you help, and so that's that's what I think. The big difference we've seen in the last six months as the scale of people being compromised. Has Gone up substantially.
Supreme Court upholds exemptions to Obamacare contraceptive mandate
"And now as promised, we're going to talk about these two Supreme court decisions that were rendered Earlier this morning and a 7 to 2 vote. The Supreme Court ruled this morning in favor of two California churches, arguing they should not have to face employment discrimination lawsuits brought by former teachers. The ruling makes it so that religious schools are exempt from most employment discrimination claims, expanding religious freedom, and the Supreme Court today also cleared the way for the Trump administration to expand exemptions for employers who have religious or moral objections to Complying with Obama's care, Obamacare's contraceptive mandate and we're going to talk with David Levin, Professor. You see Hastings College of the law about these rulings and other Supreme Court decision is expected to come. Welcome David Levin. Always good to have you with us. Good morning. Good morning to you and well, we got a couple of examples here. The court, citing with religious groups and religious liberty, don't wait. We sure do. I think this is gonna end up being a trilogy with one from a couple weeks ago involving those private schools in Montana, where the Supreme Court said that Montana and many other states could not limit public school funds. That school's off school funds to go to religious schools and in these two as you, said, the one involving two schools down in Southern California, where 11 plaintiff alleged that she was the victim of a discrimination. The other plaintiff alleges that she was Victim of disability discrimination because she had told the school that she had breast cancer in both cases is to teachers were not given new contracts well, the Supreme Court said that under was called the Ministerial Exception. The's teachers who are primarily secular teachers. They teach things like English math spelling to fifth and sixth graders, but they also letter daily prayer. They also at least from a workbook did some religious instruction that that was enough for them to come within the ministerial exception. And basically, it's for this for the institution. In this case, the Catholic schools to say who it is, who is responsible for inculcating students with faith, etcetera, and that the government shouldn't second guess that opinion by seven to to the Supreme Court agreed with that idea, so it blows a huge hole. Ian Discrimination Law your number earlier in the term. That was the case about protection of lesbian and gays in transgender under title seven well in the religious school contacts that's gone this morning. And then if you want to go into the second, we're going to the 2nd 1 I want to. I want to break them down with you. But okay, we'll come back. Alright. The other one's called litter Sisters of the poor, and this has to do with the contraception mandate in the affordable care act and this causes. The statute requires contraception to be included among the health. The kind of Procedures that are available under the affordable health care under Obamacare, and that's caused some consternation. We've had other cases the famous hobby lobby case, saying that well if a privately held corporation and religious scruples they didn't have to offer contraception and then the Supreme Court in the year that Justice Scalia died. I asked the parties, the Obama administration and the parties, including the Little Sisters of the Poor, the lead plaintiff here to try and come up with some accommodation because the little sisters even objected to the idea that they would have to tell their health insurers that they didn't want to give the contraception. Coverage. And so instead, the by this point in the Trump administration was involved because of the change of administration in the Trump administration, came up with a very broad exemption was for religious and moral reasons that you could just as an employer. You could just say we don't want to provide contraceptive. Coverage. And while there's some nuance to it, basically as you stand by 70 to Justice Thomas for the majority said that was okay that we could have this big big exception. In the affordable care act both for religion and for moral
Making the Pivot from Pastor to Web Designer with Chris Misterek
"Manage your time better, but I want to kind of switch gears a tiny bit and talk about your decision to go from doing web design, part time, or on the side to doing it fulltime, because I've. I'm trying to think in my head, but I don't think I've ever met. Anyone interviewed anyone who was working in like a faith related. There's probably a like industry term for that like a faith based profession, or whatever who went from that into tech I. actually do know someone who did the reverse who was intact and then went back to school for Ministerial Studies but I haven't heard someone quite like you, so i WanNa. Know like how you made that decision in what went into that? Yeah, for sure you know it wasn't easy because I had been at my job at the church for thirteen years when I decided like okay I. Think I think this might be the direction that I'm moving in show it was it was a multi tiered decision and I think anybody who goes through a career change, no matter where they're coming from or going to their show, many things that you have to consider and part of it was I was working fulltime for the church. And then you know still another twenty hours on top of my my work for the church show. For the Church was at least fifty hours a week, and so I was point seventy to eighty hours a week depending on the activity that we were doing, and so part of it was like okay like this is, this is to be too much in. So I need to figure out a way to. Scale back a little bit and have some more free time for myself and you know. It wasn't that? It was taking time away from my family. It was more that it was taking more time away from me. Being able to sleep because my girls would go to sleep my family, we've got to sleep. I'd say up until two or three in the morning. Just trying to get things done, so you know there was that aspect of things at NFL goes back to having the time to do things like I think. You can only run the at your pace for so long before you go. Okay, something needs to change or. On a short train to burn out, so so there was that. And I don't sound too overly spiritual or anything, but my my understanding of who got is and how he operates within the world is that he's not confined to a church, and so my thought was I'm not. I'm not necessarily leaving the ministry, but just that ministry is going to be. Looking a little bit differently for me, and how to huge heart and passion to see how God could use me in the tech space in the tech world, and and so it's it's been pretty awesome to connect with people who are of of this infant, but even people who have heard my story and have been encouraged and know that you know God is still using that despite the fact that it's not overtly from. From a church or or from Christian organization, so it's it's been pretty fun, and and it's still like a year and a half inch, so I'm still like figuring it out. You know because I have thought patterns in like beliefs and stuff. That I've been building up for thirteen years, and so the transition. It's not like I'd turn to switch on in my whole thought process in mindset change you know like is a. A gradual process and I think that's true for anybody who's WHO's trying to make a transition even if you haven't been in a job for a short as long a period of time as I was, you know like I've had to be patient with myself. I've had to have people speak into. Have some people to bounce ideas off of like I know you and I have bounced ideas off of one another as like. Like what is this look like for you? And how do you experience this? And but at the end of the day like I love the idea that you can have like a big impact. No matter what space you work in the impact that you have on the world is not dictated by the job that you do, but it's by how you do that job and how you look at it approaches and so. If I were saying Oh. This isn't as significant of a job as my last one. Then I think I'd miss out on a lot of opportunities that I've had just because you know that's such a bad way to look at.
UK government drops Claire O’Neill as president of Cop26 summit
"Cup Twenty Six is the next United Nations Conference on climate change which will take place in. Glasgow in November is being called the most important cop yet. Justice Com Twenty five twenty four twenty three and all the rest who described but to be fair. That's an oversimplification because cop. Twenty six is the event five years after the Paris Agreement where the one hundred ninety plus countries signed the agreement pledged their future actions to control emissions Paris. The target was to hold global temperature increases to two degrees centigrade although it was estimated the Pledges made at the time would only hold them back to about three point. Five degree Centigrade since then scientists have decided that the increase should be able to one point five degrees Centigrade on since then. President trump has withdrawn the US from the Paris Agreement. Claiming acts against American interests coincidentally summations fell by about two percent twenty nineteen but this is largely due to the replacement of coal by frank gas for Trinity Generation. It's unlikely that this will be enough to meet the Paris targets over the long term given the importance of twenty six eighty s concerning to find the prime minister has dismissed conference President Claro Neil prior to the December election.

The Secret Societies of Yale
"Today there are several secret societies at Yale though skull and bones is the oldest and arguably the most storied all of these societies emerged out of the schools long history of organized elitism and rigid culture. Sure of classism in seventeen o one Yale. College was the Third University established in the United States. It was initially founded as a ministerial l.. School tasked with training ministers for the state of Connecticut who would then serve as the moral leaders of their communities at the time. The only other ministerial Ariel School in New England was Harvard. But a group of Puritan leaders felt that the education style there was becoming too modern and straying too far from the Orthodoxy oxy so they founded Yale as more traditional conservative institution. Yale men were there for expected to follow strict guidelines of Conduct Act. They were forbidden from leaving their dorm rooms. Without proper attire from speaking to a superior without first being spoken to from running in the quad the list goes on and on. The students are also bound by a rigid social hierarchy as Alexandra Robbins. Detailed in her book on the skull and bones secrets of the tomb. Students were ranked by their social cash. Not Their academic performance. She explained students at the top of the class. Had Fathers who held high civil office at the bottom were sons of farmers merchants mariners in artisans. This ranking determined every aspect of a student's life at Yale from where they sat in class to where they were housed and what order they were announced at graduation it was predetermined mend before a student's stepped foot on campus and was nearly impossible to improve beyond that all freshmen were seen as the lowest of the alot with the most rules to follow. They couldn't wear hats or carry canes both status symbols at the time they couldn't address senior students by any kind of familiar familiar name only as sir. This rigid caste system encouraged rampant hazing on campus referred to as trimming the upperclassmen believed. It was their duty to improve the lowly freshman and mold them into proper Yale men any freshman found in violation. Shen of any rule could be trimmed by an upperclassman in any manner that they deemed fit the university approved a trimming until the mid eighteen eighteen. Hundreds seeing it as an effective method of enforcing their strict code of conduct one administrator said that if trimming was abolished the new freshmen. c'mon would subject the higher classes to constant guerrilla city. Lessen their manhood and dignity reduce all to an equal rudeness and Render Yale. Amir are common school of course as with any hazing practice. This power was often abused in one story. A freshman was reportedly dragged ragged from his dorm and out into the woods stripped naked covered in paint and forced to have his head shaved. In this culture of fear systemic oppression low ranking. Students looked for opportunities to distinguish themselves academically thereby engendering some loyalty respect and ideally ideally protection from the upperclassmen. In the late seventeen hundreds students found these opportunities. And literary societies these open groups held weekly weekly meetings students gave speeches recited poems performed plays and debated topics of the day. But over time the campus was overrun. By these societies. Nearly every student was a member of at least one. They lost any feeling of specialness. If anyone could join what was the point so oh. Some of the groups went underground forming the first secret societies at Yale by limiting the membership it gave students a place to establish establish themselves as even farther above Yale's elite students the elite of the elite. These secret clubs were undoubtedly utterly inspired by other real secret societies of the era groups like the luminosity and freemasons were well known in the United States but as we said earlier the secret nature of these groups was born into Cecil to their cause. This wasn't the case at all at Yale. Their secrecy was motivated by elitism sociologist. George Simil- wrote extensively about secret keeping and secret societies. He found that secrets. TAP into a primal human the need for information if something is being kept a secret. It's subconsciously indicates to us that the information is valuable therefore the secret keepers keepers are in possession of something worthy of coveting Yale secret societies which were really no more than study groups with a secret handshake manufactured factored value by operating secret. The secret societies quickly overtook all other groups in prestige simply by closing their doors and shuttering blinds. Being in the secret became the new indicator of social status
Justices could limit job bias lawsuits against churches
"The US Supreme Court says it will consider expanding protections for churches against job discrimination claims at issue are two cases where a federal appeals court allowed lawsuits to go ahead by teachers against to Catholic schools in California the Supreme Court has previously ruled that religious employees of a church cannot sue for employment discrimination but the court hasn't made clear exactly who could see was a secular employee and who could not as a religious employee the question for the justices in the new cases is how broadly religious institutions can invoke a ministerial exception to anti discrimination laws I'm Walter Ratliff
Why has Pakistan sentenced a former president to death?
"Pakistan was founded in nineteen forty seven. It has not proved an easy country to lead indeed indeed. It's something of a Wanda anyone tries. In those seven. Short decades of its existence Pakistan has seen two presidents or the equivalent overthrown in coups. WHO's to forced into resignation to quitting to avoid impeachment one hanged one killed in an arguably suspicious plane crash one chased into exile one one dying from illness in office of Pakistan's prime ministers four have being sacked three unloaded by their own parties. One chased into exile one on assassinated one chased into exile and then assassinated upon their return and these are an incomplete assessment of the hazards attendant upon high office in Pakistan. We've only got about five minutes and at any rate to say. Nothing of uncountable. Attempted assassinations failed. Coups d'etat and sundry abortive altuve plots any occupant of Pakistan's presidential palace or prime ministerial residence nose to sleep with one eye open and a pistol beneath a pillow pillow so it is possible that Pervez Musharraf who was president of Pakistan between two thousand and one and two thousand eight has responded philosophically to the death sentence passed upon him this week by a court in Islamabad which convicted him of high treason. Musharraf cannot claim that he didn't know what he was getting himself into to inaction at. This moment is suicide for Pakistan and I cannot allow this country to commit suicide. I had to take this action in order to preserve the democratic transition then rick I initiated Massara also enjoys the constellation that the sentence is unlikely ever to be enacted he received news of the verdict in Dubai. Are you where he has lived since two thousand sixteen having prudently contracted around then a mysterious ailment. That could not possibly have been treated. In any of Pakistan's many perfectly serviceable hospitals certain reprehensible cynics have further suggested that the United Arab Emirates lack of an extradition treaty with Pakistan may have been as much a factor in sheriff's choice of destination as the healthcare in assessing the reasons for what has befallen Musharraf. It is worth recapping how he gained power in Pakistan and how he lost it. Musharraf was a career army officer and by one thousand nine hundred nine join held the rank of general and the title of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Pakistan's senior most military role that year tensions between Musharaff Graf and then Prime Minister Sharif climaxed in a coup d'etat in which Musharaff seized power. I would like to please do not expect your level of democracy which you learned over a number of centuries all trying to learn and we are doing well the last time Musharraf held office surviving at least a two assassination attempts until two thousand eight when he resigned amid chaos and turbulence encroaching from a number of fronts. He left for London and returned to Pakistan in two thousand thirteen hoping to campaign for office again but found himself under house arrest. Prominent among a lengthy list of accusations against him was involvement in the assassination of former prime minister and former Philo exile Benazir Bhutto. who was murdered shortly after her return to Pakistan in two thousand and seven tourist allies and we are prepared to risk the liberty but we are not prepared to surrender our great nation the militants? This is not what Musharraf has been convicted of however however the high treason charge relates to his unsuccessful last-ditch attempt to prolong his presidency in two thousand and seven. He declared a state of emergency see and suspended. The constitution pulled the plugs on TV. Channels sacked the chief justice of the Supreme Court and had several opposition figures placed under house. Arrest I including current Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan Musharraf may be reflecting that some of his former foes have long memories but so Doodoo who do some of his former comrades Pakistan's military has always taken a flexible view of the convention of submission to Civilian Command and one of the more more brow arching responses to the death sentence against Musharraf has come from the Pakistani military's media department which said that the sentence had been received and with a lot of pain and anguish by the rank and file of Pakistan's armed forces. It also suggested in an unmistakable tone of airy menace that June legal. Google process seems to have been ignored and that an officer of Musharraf's statue could surely never be a traitor. Nice little independent judiciary dish area. You have here wouldn't want anything to happen to. If one sets aside any squeamishness about capital punishment with the conviction of Michelle off is arguably a step forward for Pakistan's always fraught and fragile constitutional democracy a robust assertion of the rule of law against a rogue officer who took power by force and tried to keep it by the same means however nobody in Pakistan needs reminding of the tendency of Pakistan's military to assert itself right back Woah never done in China because children deal outside Pete as we go to Air Musharaff's legal team claimed their client intends to challenge the guilty verdict and the death sentence in Pakistan's Supreme Court. It would be better for his country and himself if he did so from a distance

Heavyweight wait champion is now regulated to the pre show. Yes stand why people want to see all eat wrestling. The fuck isn't this is what it is man and does that make any sense. Why would a raw team? Get the opportunity wind smackdown tag team championships. It's because they're going to be an X._F._l.. N._F._l.. Team that plays in the Super Bowl there might be no. There's there maybe this I'm GonNa put my eyes out. How stupid is this imagine? If what if I if in the N._F._l..

Oh Wow I didn't realize it was that bad for shameless famous <hes> yeah that's why he's out right now because of spinal stenosis and the prognosis is that's fun word to say the prognosis is that he may not be able to return and I thought okay you know rumors because Daniel Bryan was going to be so hurt after after wrestlemainia than as back right but the thing that made me perk up is when sorrows walking out to shame Mrs Music Yeah and they didn't say anything about the bar. The insane thing about shame is what he has that little bit like it starts off Cesar. It's it was their bar music. It's branded the entrance was different. I liked the entrance of the flashing pictures of him in the different poses of that was cool. I like that <hes>. The music still seems to fit him if they're gonNA go that way. That is really shitty for shameless although I mean like we. I don't think she was ever going to get back to the level that he was at you know world title unless he pulled a major switch up and it sounds like that may not be in the cards now that Kinda sucks for this match. I'M GONNA go. I'm GONNA go some. Oh Judge Joe and I'm going to go unintentional but then later down the road shenanigans yeah dominic does something well no I think maybe you have some oh Joe. Retain and Dominic was going to help ray but ended up costing raid the match and then some o- Jogos someone else ray in Dominic Stiller like trying to be a team kind of thing and I'm going to cost them another match then we get a he'll turn when ray ministerials going up against andrade or something and well. Let's go to the men's money in the bank ladder match so this one I mean by the looks of it should be a spectacle right. We've got andrade got ricochet drew McIntyre Tire Ben Maller Sammy's Ain Barron Corbin Ali and rainy Orton. I mean this is gonna be brutal and some spots is going to be high. Flying and others like this is going to be what a ladder match money in the bank was made for yeah and you're going to also get it probably to really cool Arcos out of nowhere that we'd never thought could be a combination it so that's going to happen. ricochets GONNA probably do a ten fifty back splash on Ali kick out to you or whatever so many kick out too well. It's ladder match but you know I hate that stuff. It's getting annoying but <hes> he got man. This is rough one for me. Because I feel like any one of these guys could carry that and use it. Well you know it could it could do well for them. I I would eliminate Ballard because you need it right the right booking and can put autumn in anything. I feel like Barron Corbin's heat. You shouldn't need to use it on him same thing with a wharton I mean <hes> I'd almost go with same Zane and try to ride the thing he's on right now if I'm booking it but I don't think they're going to go that way. I think it's GonNa be I think they're gonNA go drew McIntyre. I just feel like that's how W._W._e.. is going to go. I'M GONNA give I'M GONNA go McIntyre. I wouldn't book it that way and you know like that but I think that's how they're gonNA go. That's a safe bet that's a good. That's a good safe pick. I think they're gonNA go a little outside the box just to keep them relevant and have them hold onto something to say hey. This guy is important and I'm going to go with Ricochet Ricochet. That was that's why the my dark horse out the darker. Some kind of the runner up was go with <hes> yeah yeah on driving darkhorse with him in Zelina Vega I mean they. Could you know they could run with that. Oh Yeah xylene Avai can put over the money in the bank. <hes> you know manager of the money in the bank winner she it always say that would be great to that would be a good pick manager in the bow or something like that yeah. I'm just saying she can always put that in the promo like you don't realize how important this person is. It's this and then she distraction when the cash incomes in she could walk to the ring smack the guy he's distracted grabs. Her Andrade comes in one two three yeah but I think Makati I think the same reason he moved for the same reason as ricochet right. It's this guy's important see what's in his hand exactly I mean if they're not putting the strap on them here. <hes> we always giggled it. It's <hes> we're not putting the title on <hes> you know he's in in risk of that whole like okay but what why like yeah great. He's being bad but he loses everything. What does it matter becoming the Modern Day without a Gimmick Bray Wyatt Wyatt where it's like? Oh it's a bad guy who loses right yeah so <hes> all right so you're saying ricochet. I'm saying Drew Laura. We'll move onto the women's money in them paying a ladder match for the latest one time in back for the ladies all right <hes> with running down. We've got the she NAM Amber Moon Right. We've got who's your Mandy rose. We've got Dana Brooke Alexa Bliss Bali in Italia Naomi and two-time money in the bank winner Carmella could she be a three-time three-time three-time money the bank winner Tom. What's he you know? I think they're going give it to Bailey. I think she's lost in the shuffle. She needs to be doing something. We need to have her relevant for some reason and I can see I could see them kissing and making up with Sasha banks a barely becomes the money in the bank champion in her Cassian on filling the blank person Sasha banks makes her return and cost Bailey that her opportunity to cash in on money in the bank and then there we go I would do it. God Dan that fucking cool. Let's just think about that. Let's just think becky to belts defense. You know both for belts. Bailey's says I'm cashing in and out of nowhere. Sasha goes in cost Bailey the magic bitch. What do you think you can leave me and then there's your food right <hes> yeah that would be cool because we're all expecting that right like I said that when it came Beca to built a win both and then the money in the bank cash in will take one? That's how they get her away without making their look like she lost and she was becky to belts and she could say I do too big to belts right now if they'd let me and she tried to get a wildcard spot once in a while and trying to get in fail <hes> but the swerve there is we see that coming out here it is Bailey and then Sasha's like be it sh- yeah yeah that would be cool <hes> but you know we're in the land of the not cool I so here's what I'm gonNA run down right. I've got I'm going to eliminate Carmelo because yeah we've been there done it. I don't see any reason why they're like. We should do it again. Naomi he is just you know. They're like. We've got Naomi. She's married to one of those those. She's not going anywhere. We're GONNA worry about pissing RAF. She's you know what I mean. She's the go she's the Bret Hart of of what we'll talk about later right <hes> <hes> Moon Ni- happening and so I'm left with manny rose. Dana Brooke Baleen Italia an Italian. We're just GONNA cross off because they know it's never going to happen from the Talia. <hes> Dana Brooke Right now. The rumor is like her pushes because they like they like she's been working her ass off the hardest artists right there like she also stop down in Florida and takes extra classes at the performance center on her own like she's in. She sets up the fuck and ring like that. They're like girls trying to fuck it right so that's why we're seeing a right so there's right you could see where they're like the because W._w._e.. So don't discount that but I'm GonNa Cross off and I'm really left with Mandy rose and Bailey and that's where my dilemma is right because for what we're saying right Bailey's a kind of character we haven't seen I feel like with the money in the bank right yeah.
"ministerials" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Delegation, potentially at the ministerial level, which would be at the lighthizer Mnuchin level than taking place in Washington over the course of the next few weeks. President Trump has given US Trade Representative Robert lighthizer until March first to negotiate an accord with the with the Chinese on. Structural changes to Beijing's economic model. Softbank is said to be dramatically scaling back its investment in we work. Let's get details from Bloomberg's Denise pelligrini. Japan's Softbank is said to have ruled out taking a controlling stake in the US space office space company, and it now plans to invest only about two billion dollars more in we work instead of the sixteen billion. It was looking at another change is said to be a foot as well originally. Softbank's vision fund backed by the Saudi government was considering buying that controlling stake. Now, SoftBank the company is said to be planning on making that investment directly. Denise pellegrini. Bloomberg daybreak Asia. All right. The time is five and a half minutes past the hour. Well, China's foreign currency holdings rose for a second month reserves, increasing to three point zero seven trillion, and that's up from three point zero six trillion. Gold futures now trading at twelve hundred eighty nine dollars and ninety cents and China is building up its gold reserves. Again, we'll get to this story in just a moment with Rashad India forecasting, the fastest growth in some three years. Seven point two percent for the twelve month period through March. In the meantime, India's newest Bank is now planning a nearly twelve billion dollar merger. As Bloomberg's rainy Inocencio reports. It's an attempt to comply with demands from regulators abundant Bank hopes to combine with mortgage financier. Grow finance if approved by shareholders and regulators the deal would reduce bon-bons founder stake to sixty one percent from eighty to India central Bank imposed penalties on bond on after it missed a September. Deadline to bring the founders take down to forty percent. The merged Bank would have more than four thousand outlets and more than thirty one thousand employees Ramey. Incensio Bloomberg daybreak Asia. South Korean media is reporting that Kim Jong UN may be on his way to Beijing. Ed Baxter has global news in Leib, Linda nine sixty San Francisco newsroom. Ed. Yeah. Rish. Thank you. And it looks to be more and more the case in was now reporting that Cam will be visiting beginning today through the tenth. Here's how it's unwound now in the early warning Asia hours. This will be the fourth summit with president Xi Jinping four Cam a train like the one often used by Cam crossed into China with heavy security in the night. Yonhap is reporting the train is due to arrive in Beijing this morning Shinwa. I say says that it will visit beginning Kimmel visit today through the tenth today, by the way, a footnote to is also Kim's birthday. So we'll unpack this and sort this for you as a day goes US, President Donald Trump has tweeted he'll deliver a time televised address tomorrow, he says that the address will nation on humanitarian and national. Security crisis at the southern border. It is unclear whether any or all of the networks will cover the speech. He's still saying he may declare a humanitarian crisis and a warning today from former secretary of homeland security secretary Jay Johnson about that says the president does not have the authority to use national emergency unless it's for things like wartime building additional barracks that type of authority was not intended for something domestically concerning our southern border. Atop legislative leaders aren't even in Washington DC. So the partial government shutdown continues on the wall has played into the swearing in speech of California's new governor Gavin Newsom holding his youngest son all kids, not just the children of the governor. And a filmmaker should have a good life in California. Should be ripped away from their parents at the border. Today be left, Hungary when politicians seek to pour billions into a wall. That should never be built Newsome says California's fought will continue to fight Washington DC and lead the way for the globe. And for America UK, Prime Minister Theresa may considering whether to accept a draft plan from pro e u politicians who wanna make it harder to leave the block with no divorce agreement. It's an amendment to the finance Bill. That would limit the treasury tax-raising powers. If there is a no deal split in San Francisco. I'm Ed Baxter. This is Bloomberg Brian and thanks very much nine minutes here past the hour. Let's welcome our guest Chuck camello president and CEO of X Essex financial services. Chuck, do you do you worry at all that the script is already written here on the US China deal. I mean, it feels like we're sliding toward China buys a lot more beans and gas and promises structural reform to the way that it does business, but perhaps. You know, it's it's a papering over do you? Are you concerned about that possibility? Well, you know, I I think there certainly is that possibility, but I don't think that's going to be the reality at the end of the day. What President Trump and has been pretty consistent about it as well. As other western nations is more around China's subsidization of their industry force technology transfer and then just outright intellectual property theft. And I really think unless some of that is addressed in some way, shape or form, you know, that's gonna be the crux of the matter. So I don't think it's been papered over. And again, just you know, an agreement that they're going to buy more. Soybeans is I don't think it's going to get it done. The thing is perhaps Washington perhaps Donald Trump administration that tide of so good, I suppose pledges that they might have pledged fatigue implementation, which is going to be the case here is going to be monitored. Absolutely. And you know, I think you know. Although obviously, Donald Trump is the most vocal and flamboyant in terms of trying to get this deal done. I mean, it is important to note that you know, how China China has been behaving regarding, you know, the technology, the intellectual property, etc. Is a concern just about every developed country, and including western Europe. So yes, definitely. Something in place. Yeah. The problem is is that lighthizer is a hawk and he really wants a structural change. The President Trump's politician. Well, listen crew, right? I mean, it's the art of the deal. And I think that's what you know. I think at the end of the day. That's what President Trump wants to get done. There's some sort of deal and some sort of agreement, but I do think very strongly that part of that deal has to resolve the technology side of it. Because that really is the biggest crux of it. Yeah. That's certainly the hope and we'll see we've just got another day of talks today. And I guess.
"ministerials" Discussed on AM 1590 WCGO
"With whatever she gets. And we have a question since he could qualify as a minister. Would it be a good idea for him to opt out of paying social security and invest that money somewhere else? Yes. Okay. Now, let's flush walk through it though. Okay. It's only on his ministerial income and. He has to be ordained as he. No, he's not an actually he doesn't have a steady income because he's well, he's down in Guatemala at an orphanage. And so he just raises his own support through donations from people. I'm not. Qualifies. You'll have to check have you checked with a tax professional about that. Because there's very specific guidelines on the IRS. And I was under the impression you had to be ordained. It might be. And we're going to meet with a financial advisor next week when he's back here in the country. So yes, we should ask him about that. If you if he is or if he does not have to be ordained, then that's a different thing. But I think he does I think it's four ordained ministers and our pastors, and you have to basically, you are claiming conscientious objector status. Under matters of conscious due to religious reasons you object to the social security system, and therefore you opt out for income that is related to the ministry. If he does other work it doesn't affect that. That's not opted out. Okay. But just income related to the ministry now, can you in good conscience object to the social security system as a Christian or I our deigned as a minister, I could because I in good conscious can say God tells me to manage money, well, and sending money the social security system is by definition, not managing it. Well, and so I could opt out as a matter of conscience in a heartbeat. And I would now if you do that if he can qualify, and if he chooses to opt out as a conscientious objector, there's a form to be filled out, and he has to do that. And again, it's only for the ministerial income. Now what you lose is three things one. Is you lose SSI, which is disability that comes from the government? If you become permanently disabled. You won't get that. So you always have to have long-term disability insurance. But you should anyway. What you lose is. If he dies with minor children, the minor children would have gotten payments from the government under the social security system. They will not. And so he has to keep long life insurance in place, buddy. Should anyway. What you lose is the third thing you'd losers obviously, you will not receive he will not receive income at retirement through the social security system because he's paid nothing into it. If he has no other jobs other than ministerial past Oriel jobs. Okay. Most pastors end up doing something else in their life and have some level of social security. That's mandatory anyway. Okay. But not all do. So let's say stays on the mission field his whole life, and he qualifies and never pays a dime. He will not get a dime out. So he needs to save for retirement, but he needs to anyway. Yes. You need to carry long-term disability insurance you need to carry life insurance. And you need those save for retirement anyway. And if you use the money, you would have paid these dufuses in Washington DC to waste, and you use that for your own family, and you properly do financial planning, you will come out all light years ahead with that money because they are so stupid up there in the way, they handle money, and it's just such a horrid system. It's a disaster. And so. Yeah. Yeah. But you gotta make sure you cover those three things, and that's assuming he does qualify. Yes. Okay. Well, that's good to know. Yeah. Thanks.
