Is the Sleeping Conservative Dragon Finally Waking Up?
"A clown world up is down down is up nothing makes anymore Victor Davis Hanson had a great piece in the Daily Caller I've been talking about throughout the show which I think is really and it's called is the sleeping conservative dragon finally waking up before I get into that you know we were asking you guys you know what do you think? Is the sleeping conservative dragon finally waking up? The number is 844 -484 3872 or more simply 844 for the USA I'll take your calls a little bit later on that but what he writes is he said so conservatives often slept through the woke revolution yet suddenly they realized their apathy allowed the country to descend into something the nation's founders never imagined or intended and antithetical to what most knew as America just a couple of decades ago so conservatives are awakening from their slumber and they are discovering that they too can boycott agitate and war you know talking about how conservatives have taken aim at some of these woke companies whether it's Target, Anheuser -Busch, Disney you know the list goes on or even what the LA Dodgers doing are right with with this group it's disgusting what they're trying to do with this sisters are perpetual indulgence a group of men engaging
Josh Hammer: Timeless Principles vs. Ad-Hoc Policies in Conservatism
"Policies that were appropriate given the problems the of country and really kind of the Western world faith at that time and principles as And well you know not conscious refers to national conservatism the Yemen Burke Foundation where I'm a research fellow is kind of the home for that we host these national conservatism conferences really kind of trying to build on the momentum That former President Trump kind of ushered in when he was elected president 2016 trying policies to immigration take certain trade foreign policy and study more kind of nationalist direction I would say trying to kind of take social and economic policy in a direction that really tries to make America a little more whole and communitarian away from the liberalization of prior decades Well I don't disagree with that necessarily but I do have some questions because I looked into some of this which national conservatism honestly I never heard of it before but that's my fault I haven't read about it One of my concerns here and I would like you to try dissuade me from this I'm concerned that that it could push sort of a government centric industrial policy and if not what are the limits on that? In other words I understand we don't have a free market but I also understand that it's the market system that creates all the wealth in this country Government doesn't create it regulations don't create it nothing creates it but we the people so what have do you in mind in that regard because I don't quite understand that? Well first of all I think it's worth pointing
When Bitcoin Meets AI by Aleksander Svetski
"A seemingly unstoppable force meets with an immovable object. I know, I know. Your Twitter feed has probably been drowning in threads and tips from AI bros who've discovered 99 ways for you to save 99 hours every week using chat GPT or some other list of 99 AI apps. I'm sick of it too. Trust me, especially considering most of these AI experts were Web 3 experts last year, NFT experts the year before, and DeFi or crypto experts before that. Trend hopping at its finest. That's not to say there's no value here to be found. Somewhere beneath or behind the almost deafening noise coming from these influencers, there is a possible paradigm shift and a genuine set of use cases. We've seen some already, of course. You can chat with these models to reason out a problem. You can summarize thoughts and ideas, find correlations between ideas, search for some information better than you could with Google, and of course, build more linguistically functional chat bots. Perhaps the best use case thus far is the Dev Assistant tool, but I get the sense that we've not yet seen the Uber moment. There is also, somewhere beneath and behind all the scary talk of AGI and the idiocy being proposed by bureaucrats and would -be regulators, a more human -centric, human -enhancing use for these tools. The idea of a language user interface as the next step from the thumb tapping we've been used to over the past decade is fascinating, and what we should be thinking about is how to make these tools new, quote, bicycles for the mind, as Steve Jobs said about computers. It's very important we push back against doomer narratives that lean the world toward approved AI, quote, unquote, in order to avoid such tools becoming yet another appendage of the state.

Debt limit deal heads to vote in full House while McCarthy scrambles for GOP approval
"The debt ceiling and budget deal worked out between House speaker Kevin McCarthy and President Biden has advanced to the full House, where a vote is expected Wednesday. I'm Ben Thomas with a look at its progress. The House rules committee voted 7 to 6 to advance the bill, chairman Tom Cole, an Oklahoma Republican calling it a product of compromise. And reflects the realities of a divided government. We shouldn't allow that to overshadow what this bill accomplishes. It would restrict spending for the next two years while also suspending the nation's debt limit during that time, and the nonpartisan congressional budget office says it reduces deficits by $1.5 trillion over the decade, but South Carolina Republican Ralph Norman also a member of the freedom caucus was disappointed. We had a real bill that was going to make a difference. We did in the original bill. This being watered down is completely takes the teeth out of it. And I see why the Democrats vote for it. I see it now. He and Texas congressman chip Roy, who earlier in the day, said not one Republican should vote for this deal. Join Democrats in opposing the bill's advance. Ranking Democrat Jim mcgovern of Massachusetts accusing the GOP of weaponizing the debt ceiling, saying it's a precedent that will forever haunt the nation. One party can use the full faith and credit of the United States as a hostage to pass their widely unpopular ideas. Adding, someday, hopefully not in my lifetime, but someday there will be a Republican president. And you will remember this moment because what you are trying to do is get things enacted that you could not get done through regular order. Ben Thomas, Washington
Debt Ceiling News Pumps BTC
"Let's go straight into some market talk. Is it all around what's happened with the debt ceiling, do we think? Or is there a bit more to it? I'm not sure, but that news about the debt ceiling has really pushed up all asset classes, and Bitcoin had a bit of a shakeout last week. Even you had a bit of a panic sell trace, but we're back to the races now. Police. I don't know if I had a panic sell. Come on. We're back to the pre -sell -off levels. I guess it was the debt ceiling, which you can give a bit of an update to. Let's talk about that. Crypto prices had a nice little pump on Sunday night with the news that the US lawmakers had ended their stalemate over the government's debt ceiling debate. As part of the deal agreed between President Joe Biden and Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, the plans are a 30 % tax on crypto mining also has been shelved as part of this deal. So I think what exactly was the deal as well? There's no debt ceiling until January 2025? I mean, that's interesting. It's the kicking the can down the road scenario that every country is doing basically, but particularly America has been leading the way for well over a decade. I'm certainly no financial expert, but what I do know is if you keep printing money, money is going to be useless. Absolutely. We've been on the way there for a long time. I'm sure that's why many people are in crypto. I didn't see this coming. I thought they'd sort of let what needs to happen happen, but how much further can they go? They sort of keep making their own rules and, like I said, keep kicking the can down the road. So the inevitable will happen at one point or another. All they're doing is, in my opinion, making what will inevitably happen

China launches new crew for space station, with eye to putting astronauts on moon before 2030
"China has launched its first civilian astronaut to its space station as part of a new three person crew, the shenzhou 16 spacecraft lifted off from a launch center on the edge of the Gobi desert in northwestern China just after 9 30 a.m. local time. The crew will overlap briefly with three now aboard the tiangong station who will then return to earth after completing their 6 month mission. China built its own space station after it was excluded from the International Space Station with the hope of putting astronauts on the moon before the end of the decade. Their exclusion was largely down to U.S. concerns over the Chinese space programs intimate ties with the People's Liberation Army, the military branch of the ruling Communist Party.

30 international peacekeepers injured in fierce clashes with ethnic Serbs in northern Kosovo
"The NATO led peacekeeping force and Kosovo has raised the number of its troops injured in fierce clashes with ethnic Serbs to 30, the Serbs were trying to block newly elected ethnic Albanian officials from entering municipal buildings in northern Kosovo after taking up their posts last week. A statement says 11 Italian and 19 Hungarian soldiers have sustained multiple injuries including fractures and burns from improvised explosive incendiary devices. It adds three Hungarian soldiers were wounded by the use of firearms, but their injuries are not life threatening. Kosovo police fired tear gas to disperse the crowd as they tried to let new officials into the offices. Serbia put the country's military on high alert and sent more troops to the border with Kosovo, the two countries have been foes for decades with Belgrade refusing to recognize Kosovo's 2008 sovereignty.

Brett Tolman: The Real Authority of U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves
"Want you to listen to this We can do it here We have multiple platforms Want you to listen to this This is Brett tolman who was a U.S. attorney in Utah really really top lawyer And he's very soft spoken so check it out Cut 22 go But you make a very good point The us attorneys nominated by the president not the attorney general and confirmed by the Senate They are presidential appointees and they serve at the pleasure of the president So despite what the practices may be the last couple of decades you're making the point It's a very important point that the U.S. attorney in Washington D.C. I believe his name is graves That he has his own authority to act that he doesn't have to sit around and worry about what the criminal division of the public integrity section or the U.S. attorney's office or the attorney general or anybody else has to say to open an investigation at a minimum and to bring an indictment correct That's exactly right He has all that authority and I'll tell you something else that I've learned relative to this The outgoing U.S. attorney at the time of January 6th Had identified a very small number of individuals that should be prosecuted And had indicated to DoJ that that was his intention They forced him out because he did not have the same vision that they did in terms of what they would turn the January 6th prosecution into And so I think about that and who they put in in their place and it is someone that will toe the line and follow what Washington D.C. wants And that is the greatest injustice we have because now we see that they will do make decisions and use their power to based on politics rather than based on the facts and the evidence which would result in a lot of people being prosecuted and put in jail including the Biden family

Thousands evacuated as Philippines warns of flooding, landslides from approaching Typhoon Mawar
"Filipino officials have begun evacuating thousands of villages and shutting down schools and offices as typhoon moire approaches the country's northern provinces. It's already battered the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, packing winds of up to 155 km/h. It's the strongest typhoon to hit the territory in two decades, flipping cars, tearing off roofs and knocking out power. Filipino authorities have warned of dangerous tidal surges flash floods and landslides, gusty winds have already lashed villages in the northeast, causing an old warehouse to collapse and prompting more villages to move to evacuation centers, current projections show that typhoon will veer northeast by midweek toward Taiwan or southern Japan. About 20 typhoons and storms batter the Philippines each year, the Southeast Asian nation lies on seismic faults where volcanic eruptions and earthquakes occur, making it one of the world's most disaster prone countries.

One of the high volume countries, you may never be able to actually get to the front of the line to order your sandwich. So now let's fast forward to 2023. I'm assuming what you're explaining has been how it's supposed to work for the last decades, maybe more than decades, maybe a hundred years. But where are we now? How does it work now? And I'm kind of asking this being sarcastic because it looks like I can see what I think I know, but what is it like now down there? Well, this is by design. I'm convinced that it's by design. So even though it's not working and it's not going the way the orderly immigration process was designed, I believe that the Biden administration has specifically set forth policies to create this. Border crisis. What they did was almost immediately was they stopped enforcing the immigration law inside of the interior of the United States. With the exception of people who have been convicted of crimes that are in custody, there's been an immigration and customs enforcement hold placed upon these individuals. They've been transferred then from either state or federal custody directly into immigration and customs enforcement. Custody for the purpose of instituting removal proceedings. If they're caught, if they're caught, and they're generally only caught, if they've committed a crime, because they're not enforcing the law inside of the United States to any degree.

We make sure that it's possible that the results can be convened promulgated to everybody. How concerned are you all about breach of security or hackers and what kinds of safeguards do you have against that? We have a huge cybersecurity crew. So if you fielded the world's largest computer for at this point more than a decade, we have script kiddies knocking at the door every 5 or 6 seconds. What's a script kitty? Somebody who wants to break into the computer for nefarious purposes. Either either organized nefarious purposes or just, hey, I hacked into the world's largest supercomputer account. Right. Yeah, so we have huge effort and intrusion detection making sure that the edge of our computer is protected from that kind of thing. And just to back up a little bit, why is it called the frontier? Yeah, I think it frontiers an app name for the machine. It's the culmination of a more than decade long project to get us to the exascale. More than a decade ago, the federal government basically made a commitment to getting us to the exascale. As a concrete sort of flag that we could see. When you say the federal government is that Congress was at legislative. It was a whole of government effort, right? And of course it took getting Congress behind it because they control the purse strings and call somebody. And so there's really two major components of getting us here. There's this machine and other machines like it. But this machine first, and then alongside of that, there was something called the exascale computing project, which was really concerned with making sure that we had software and codes that could actually take advantage of the machines. Once they got here, that was a big worry, say 7 years ago that we would build it and nobody would come and nobody could come, right? Because they wouldn't be ready. One problem that requires a lot of flop, so a lot of floating point operations per second is climate modeling, or weather modeling. Now, the thing about weather modeling is you kind of have to get an answer before the weather actually happens, or it's not super useful, right? And so weather codes typically want to be able to get answers within just a few hours or maybe even sub out in some cases. To be able to do that and to have the same physical fidelity, it's going to tell you it's going to rain here and it's not going to rain there or you're going to have a windstorm here. You're not going to have a windstorm there when you're talking about a few miles apart. Only at the exascale where we're going to be able to do that with regularity. Comet models are going to have to be at that level. AI and machine learning might help because, you know, we all have a field for what the weather is like, right? So guess what? You can train machines to sort of have a feel for what it's like as well, but you have to train it. Because you said the machine will have a feel. And this is something that I think we are trying to wrap our heads around. These are human words. They are. So how do we get a feel? When people say, I have a feel of what that is. How do you get a feel? Well, it's through experience. It's through seeing the same thing over and over with slight variations and being able to predict with some amount of fidelity. What's going to happen again? Is it going to happen again exactly like that? Like the sky is gray, it might rain today. Exactly. Or if it's clear blue sky, it's not going to rain today. I have a feel for that. Even something as simple as shooting a basketball, right? If I sort of torque it this way, I'm going to miss it if I don't, if I feel it, go out of my hand the right way. It's probably going to make it in. Feeling like that. That's very much the kind of thing that happens with AI and ML. You basically train ML and AI tools. ML machine learning. Machine learning on lots and lots of data to lots and lots of experiences. And then you use that to anticipate if you see a similar dataset in the future what might happen. Since frontier understand emotion? No, the frontier does not understand emotion. It doesn't understand tone. It's all it knows is sort of what it's been found. It can fake, understanding emotion, right? So a lot of the AI and ML tools feel like human. GPT is a prime example of this. I was going to ask they feel rather human. But they're not. They're not formulating a rigid call. They're using a backlog. They're making new things, right? But out of a limited set of things. And if you steer them right, they'll just copy what they've learned before. Understand. And so does that all get stored that memory learning gets stored and then it can be basically resurfaced as needed. That's right. Basically, there's two sides to the artificial intelligence and machine learning coin. One is training. It turns out that machine big, huge machines like frontier, really good at training. Because you need a lot of memory to store all those data, to be able to train an AI model on, and you need to be able to do it fast. So huge machine on frontiers really good at that. Then you get a model, you get a reduced sort of set of things that you can use. And you want to do inference.

So if you fielded the world's largest computer for at this point more than a decade, we have script kiddies knocking at the door every 5 or 6 seconds. What's a script kitty? Somebody who wants to break into the computer for nefarious purposes. Either either organized nefarious purposes or just, hey, I hacked into the world's largest supercomputer account. Right. Yeah, so we have huge effort and intrusion detection making sure that the edge of our computer is protected from that kind of thing And just to back up a little bit, why is it called the frontier? Yeah, I think it frontiers an app to name for the machine. It's the culmination of a more than decade long project to get us to the exascale. More than a decade ago, the federal government basically made a commitment to getting us to the exascale. As a concrete sort of flag that we could see. When you say the federal government is that Congress was at legislated. It was a whole of government effort, right? And of course it took getting Congress behind it because they control the purse strings and call somebody. And so there's really two major components of getting us here. There's this machine and other machines like it. But this machine first, and then alongside of that, there was something called the exascale computing project, which was really concerned with making sure that we had software and codes that could actually take advantage of the machines. Once they got here, that was a big worry. Say 7 years ago that we would build it and nobody would come and nobody could come, right? Because they wouldn't be ready. One problem that requires a lot of flops, a lot of floating point operations per second is climate modeling or weather modeling. Now the thing about weather modeling is you kind of have to get an answer before the weather actually happens, or it's not super useful, right? And so weather codes typically want to be able to get answers within just a few hours or maybe even sub out in some cases. To be able to do that and to have the same physical fidelity, it's going to tell you it's going to rain here and it's not going to rain there or you're going to have a windstorm here. You're not going to have a windstorm there when you're talking about a few miles apart. Only at the exascale where we're going to be able to do that with regularity. The comet models are going to have to be at that sort of that level. AI and machine learning might help because, you know, we all have a feel for what the weather is like, right? So guess what, you can train machines to sort of have a feel for what it's like as well. But you have to train it. Because you said the machine will have a feel. And this is something that I think we are trying to wrap our heads around. These are human words. They are. So how do we get a feel? When people say, I have a feel of what that is. How do you get a feel? Well, it's through experience. It's through seeing the same thing over and over was slight variations and being able to predict with some amount of fidelity. What's going to happen again? Is it going to happen again exactly like that? Like the sky is gray, it might rain today. Exactly. Or if it's clear blue sky, it's not going to rain today. I have a feel for that. Even something as simple as shooting a basketball, right? If I sort of torque it this way, I'm going to miss it if I don't, if I feel it go out of my hand the right way, it's probably going to make it in. Feeling like that. That's very much the kind of thing that happens with AI and ML. You basically train ML and AI tools. ML machine learning. Machine learning on lots and lots of data to lots and lots of experiences. And then you use that to anticipate if you see a similar dataset in the future what might happen. Since frontier understand emotion? No, the frontier does not understand emotion. It doesn't understand tone. It's all it knows is sort of what it's been found. It can fake, understanding emotion, right? So a lot of the AI and ML

"Hello everyone, welcome to another episode of the aftershock. Your host here, Richard carthon. And I know we've been on the hiatus, but happy to be back here in 2023. The month of January has definitely flown by and as we go into February, we're starting off pretty bullish. So exciting times in crypto land, a lot of things to be excited. And positive about, but we're going to go ahead and dive right into it and get into it this week's aftershock. The aftershock. So this first week's article is brought to you through FTX lawyers are looking to reap millions from the baker C case. The legal team is from Sullivan and Cromwell and they have about a 150 people on the bankruptcy case. 30 partners are reportedly charging more than $2000 per hour. So needless to say there's a lot that's going into this case, a lot of money is being charged. And they're sparing no expense to hopefully try to, in this case, good luck to them. I don't know how that's going to fair, but clearly they're spending a tremendous amount of money to get this going. So go ahead and dive into the next article which has to do with BlockFi. So BlockFi executive to lead Google Cloud's efforts across Asia Pacific with more than decade of experience Rishi, Richmond, who was with Bank of America, Merrill Lynch before spending the last two years at BlockFi. And as you all know, blog font, unfortunately, filed for bankruptcy. Now taking their efforts over to Google Cloud's web three efforts. So not to surprising that a lot of the unfortunately a lot of the executive team is now going in another direction to find greener pastures and try to get blocks live behind. But people are still looking into the future, which is web three in Google Cloud is looking into that as well. So they got a pretty big person who has experience to help bring that to the next level. So we think that's a pretty interesting piece of news. The next article talks about mango. So mango market sues every M eisenberg for 47 million in damages plus interest. So law student makes the fourth time mango markets exploiter has been hit with charges by lawsuits related to the attack on the DeFi protocol for those who don't know mango markets was built on top of the Solana ecosystem. Unfortunately got hit with quite a few different hacks. So now more and more lawsuits are continuing to come up. So it looks like there will be some justice pie still going to be one of those things that's going to take some more time, but we will continue to look at what happens with this, especially as these lawsuits continue to develop. Next article has to do with uniswap with uniswap holders proposing the ditch Ethereum for binance smart chain chain to deploy B three protocol. So almost 80% of uni holders voted to support the deployment of uniswap's protocols to V three on the B and B chain. Now, binance smart chain, the BNB chain, it's cheaper. When you look at a lot of different protocols out there, there's a lot of programmers building on it. So not a huge shock here, but it was almost like it was even proposed as a temperature check. To see how uniswap can continue to evolve. So we're getting away from a lot of these higher gas fees and slower transactions and try to move to speed and efficiency. So we will see how this continues to progress out, but this is a big move as uniswap started as an EVM chain, Ethereum, and now looking to go to other chains. Our next article brings us to a wormhole hackle who moved a 155 million, which is the biggest shift of stolen funds in months. So blockchain transaction history shows that the hacker transferred funds from a Dex and then went into cycle of funds. It's a different DeFi protocols. So shifting this money and trying to clean it, if you will, within the web three space, because everything's on public blockchain, you can follow all the transactions and people have time, especially people who unfortunately get hacked for substantial amount of money. So this is a wormhole hacker is being tracked monitored pretty closely. And I think as hacking continues into the future, it's going to get harder and harder because more and more programmers are coming up with these different types of protocols to help pinpoint and get to the core faster. So I'll be interested to see how this one develops. But again, there's a ton of scams that happen last year. I think it was over like $2 billion. Potentially more that ultimately people got scanned out of just from pure hacks. We're not talking about FTX or anything else. We're just talking about from peer hacking standpoint and scamming. So this is something that will continue to unravel through the years, but I think we'll be reduced over time. So as we go into our next article that we're looking at today, FDX says the Wall Street heavyweights are among its creditors. Now, in the outbreak of everything that is happening over at FTX, advisers say that the collapse crypto company a ton of firms, including Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo company, bankruptcy court the bankruptcy court documents were showing and it was a 116 page document that got filed on Wednesday and it's just showing all the creditors with thousands of entries for all the people that FTX. So again, this is going to be something that's going to take a lot of time to fully develop and get to the core of all the mess, but this is unfortunately a gigantic mess. And I know we've been giving you a lot of information on it and we will continue to keep you updated on what the latest is going on in this particular case. And the wrap this one up for aftershock round, we are going to be looking at brave. So brave announced its alliance with animoca brands to boost its web three initiatives, which animal could brands has been really proactive in investing in a lot of web three companies as an investor from NFTs to just regular web three companies. And they're trying to work with animal brands, Japan, specifically, is looking to work with brave and the intention was to help the brand over at brave continue to expand. So for those who are familiar with brave, it's a browser. It's a mint to be a lot more safe and secure. And also reward you and basic attention token. So if you watch specific ads and subscribe to those, you then get rewarded in that native token. So they're trying to continue to expand that brand. Hopefully be household name just like Google Chrome is our safari is. And a mocha does a really good job with its publicity and marketing, helping its brands that invest in a larger. So we think this is a pretty substantial piece of news. So that's going to wrap up this week review of what's happening with three. And now we're going to look at last week in metaverse. So the first article that we are going to examine is Amazon is reportedly launching an NFT initiative this spring. So it is one of the latest Fortune 500 companies to venture into NFTs. And I don't think this is out of nowhere. I think they've been building this for a while. And if Amazon were to come out the gates and launch its own marketplace, Amazon has a huge marketplace, and it knows this game, obviously they usually are selling more physical goods, although again, they started in the digital world, starting with digital books that you could go and buy. So they can come in with their resources and be a pretty substantial player if they're able to go and get buy in from the web three community and do the right types of collaborations with brands and people who are doing big drops, et cetera. Coinbase tried this last year and unfortunately it did not work in their favor. And they put a ton of money

It just gone 8 a.m. across Emirates, I'm used to gaming in Dubai Central Bank officials restated their resolve to stay aggressive and that is weighing on risk appetite across the board. On the S&P 500 mini world called lower, clearly so by about 7 tenths of 1%, more than 50% of the S&P 500 is down over 20% and is firmly in the bear market and in terms of what you're seeing in treasuries. It is a yield that is up to 4% for the first time since 2010. You're a dollar at one O 6 58. We're down 7 tenths of 1%. The greenback at a fresh record, the hawkish fed speak underpinning sentiment, and then Brent crude, a little bit lighter here, just above $85 a barrel Goldman Sachs slashing their oil price forecast, but overall they remain bullish for the moment at least. I want to get to the bottom story in more detail because the withdrawal rates in treasuries have been astounding. This is a chart that goes back all the way to the beginning of the century to the year 2000. We're seeing the fastest withdrawal ever. This is the Bloomberg global aggregate index. It's lost a quarter of its value. It's been a painful period for Bond managers and the 5 year auction we had overnight. We didn't help either in terms of treasury's pricing. Janet Yellen, though, saying that the market is functioning fine even though there are some who say that liquidity rod is exacerbating some of these price moves. Let's talk about Apple on the corporate side of things because news in the last two hours or so that there's some changes that are being made to their production plants. This is something that's not necessarily negative, but it's not as positive as some would have liked to see. Basically they had plans at place to accelerate production if there is a lot of demand. Now those additional increases for supply have been put on hold. The anticipated surge did not materialize. This is according to people familiar with the matter. So suppliers were told to pull back and basically they're going to focus on the base case, which was 6 million units of the second half of the year, and 90 million for the period. It's roughly the same level as the prior year. And if this actually in line with apple's original forecast this summer, the iPhone 14 pro has been doing much better in terms of appetite and it's much stronger than their entry level versions. I checked out the iPhone 14 base model. It's definitely not a lot to talk about there, so you can understand the interest in the iPhone 14 pro. After hours, we're looking at the stock that is just a little bit about the flat line there. But there's plenty to talk about in terms of the ripple effect from the apple story through the markets in Asia. And of course the rates, pain as well. It's really Sally has all the angles from our Singapore studio. Hey Jules. Yeah, hey, so if you've got a wonder, which we've talked about before, if people are facing higher rental prices, are they going to buy a new phone? We've certainly been watching a lot of the Apple suppliers in the region too, which have mostly been coming under pressure. But it is a day of selling so you've got to put that into perspective as well. And in fact, the drawdown that we've seen on the regional benchmark index now surpassing that we saw in 2011 when there were a lot of headwinds as well. You've got the regional benchmark index still at these April 2020 lows. We are seeing significant selling coming through in South Korea's market, which does have a lot of those apple supplies. It's at July 2020 lows. And of course, can't get past the weakness in Hong Kong's end index as well, which is tracking at that more than decade low there too. You can see on high in Taipei of 2.4%, that is apple's main Asian supplier. Let's have a look though in terms of currencies as well. We know king dollar very much in play, the PBOC once again really trying to stem the weakness in this currency with a 25th day of a stronger than expected bias, but you have seen the offshore yuan. I actually hit a record low against the greenback, the sentiment they are damped by the fed's tightening stance. And when it comes to the onshore currency, will the dollar against the onshore topping its 2019 level so a 14 year high there, 14 year low for the onshore currency. So back to those GFC levels, and we were talking to your henio victorino from SEB earlier on Bloomberg markets, Asia, she doesn't see the dollar peaking until November, Yusuf. Jules, thank you very much for the moment. We'll check back in with you later on in the show to see if there are any other moves on the way to Juliet sale there.

"Not there but I'm not staged On the 12th 13th and 14th there were constant air strikes We were all sitting in the cellar Those who could do so left the city But a lot of cars were bombed and they burned out So people couldn't leave There were lots of people dying on the streets There were bodies in the streets Well let's hear now from our correspondent we're at Davis who is in as Aboriginal Now in recent days and weeks those people who've been able to flee from Mario pull have been coming through here Many of them including children being treated at local hospitals But the big fear here now is that this city will become the next target for the Russian offensive Indeed in recent weeks there have been sporadic missile attacks in the area And in the last 24 hours 7 people were reported to have been killed in attacks against a local training base and factories And that's meant a curfew has now been declared a 38 hour curfew in the city declared by the army and by local authorities And that's already led to pretty big cues at checkpoints in the city People fleeing the city much north to the town of dnipro Of course the fear is that this city will soon resemble what has happened in mariupol That was the BBC's wearer Davis reporting from Zappos And within the past hour the BBC has received a message on telegram from the Mario pole mayor who says that Russia is illegally transferred several thousand residents from Maria poll to Russia He says somewhat redirected to remote cities in Russia while the fate of others remains unknown It's not possible to independently verify the allegation Well billions of dollars of humanitarian aid is now flowing into Ukraine but how do you get it into cities like mariupol where it is so desperately needed since the conflict began there had been intermittent ceasefires to allow civilians to leave besieged population centers through humanitarian corridors though though in Mario pole they had been shot at by the Russians So how do you set up proper proper formal corridors to ensure people can get out and humanitarian aid can be delivered what conversations have to be had I'd be speaking to Emma beals who reported on the war in Syria and is now a senior adviser at the European institute for peace Yeah those conversations tend to happen at a range of levels we've seen the negotiations taking place between the Ukrainians and Russians about the larger ceasefire but there has also included the conversation about humanitarian corridors And there's also a conversation going on I think between the United Nations and Russia as well in terms of deconfliction of humanitarian structures and of humanitarian convoys and supplies as well as those access corridors So it's a matter of sort of getting the warring parties or one warring party in particular in this case to agree to that and to agree to it in terms that are operationally viable which means a long enough period with a secure enough route that the humanitarian actors feel is guaranteed enough that they're able to put their staff at risk to be able to take those supplies through into something like a siege And it really does rest on convincing that warring party that they are going to allow their access even though it is obviously part of international humanitarian law and international law They do need to do that But it would seem to be the case with Russia and Ukraine that it doesn't want Humanitarian aid to be delivered to somewhere like Mario pole because it counters its own strategy of trying to well effectively starve the population to death Right This is the problem that we're seeing in the Ukraine and it's one of the problems that we saw over the last more than decade in Syria time and time again in these sieges We did see this position from Russia and allies and other settings where they did not want to allow the humanitarian aid because exactly as you're saying It counted their strategy which was through military aggression through attacks on humanitarian infrastructure on hospitals on the shelters that people are hiding underground and through denial of food and medical assistance to actually force those populations to surrender or capitulate because that obviously happens a lot faster if you are depriving them of those things Despite the fact that it is very much against international law But what we've seen in Syria as well is that we're as a world very poorly equipped to deal with a situation when the primary set is not welling to allow their access or to fall in line with the laws of war And there's nothing that can be done You are suggesting to persuade them otherwise I mean was there in Syria I mean at some point there were they were able to get some of that assistance in but one of the real worries and I think that this is something that we should learn from absolutely going into the Ukrainian context is that escalating that can not take a long time You know we can't ask nicely and ask nicely and ask nicely and wait until people are literally starving which is something that did happen in the sieges in Syria Before it gets escalated to the next level Before it's brought up at the Security Council before it's made into initial big concern that has diplomatic ramifications in accountability attached to it you know in some of these situations we can see the trajectory that's playing out we've seen it before and we don't necessarily need to take the slow road again in terms of taking those next steps of raising those concerns into forums where actually maybe there's an ability to force the hand a little bit more Who reported on the war in Syria and is now a senior adviser at the European institute for peace.
"more than decade" Discussed on The Argument
"Sucks and I felt it was more important to really try to get the U.S. government to pay attention and take early steps to avoid it rather than preserve my credibility, which frankly is why people often head to their analysis because they don't want to be wrong on something like this. And then what they say is question, but it was too big. It was in my face, it was coming. But I'm not, and I have been off on a couple things. But what is amazing what is shocking is the flawed assumptions of the Russian government. The Russian military is not incompetent. They've proven themselves in smaller contingencies, their professional, their exercised, which is different than being well trained, but they're pretty well exercised. But they were operating on this very, very flawed assumption that node faced little resistance. They may be welcomed in, and it looks like they rolled in as if they were going into a peacekeeping operation into a training area instead of rolling into combat. And the resistance that they're faced is fierce. From all across the country, we'll find out eventually how much of this is designed and how much of this is fortune. But I would imagine there's quite a bit of design from the Ukrainian side. They didn't fight every inch. They let the Russian forces funnel in to major cities, many, many miles away from their logistics, many, many miles from safe haven, and then stalled him and started destroying a Russian forces. And then punished the supply lines to maintain those forces in the fight. And that's something that is both the massive misjudgment on the Russian side and the fierce resistance from the Ukrainian side is not something that I think anybody really accounted for. And that includes me because I did actually think about the resolve and willingness of the Ukrainians to fight. And I thought that they would put up a valiant fight, but this is a whole different scale. It's a long way to go, and it's a really, really precarious situation. It is day by day, hour by hour. But you can almost see Ukraine leaving this war with its sovereignty independence intact, which is hard to imagine when facing by all accounts the second most powerful military in the world. And this is all them, by the way, this is not like other allies coming in. This is Ukrainian fighting on their own. They're getting equipment now. Probably later than they should have. They're taking more losses than 82, but they're getting it. And they're going to be able to sustain themselves probably question is what does Russia do? Right. This seems like it has not gone at all the way that Putin may have wanted. You're seeing these tank formations, these long columns of tanks that are breaking down, just lacking fuel. So as you said, it did look like they either expected to be coming in welcomed. They expected to be coming in so quickly that there would be no defense. There have been a lot of people talking about how this is a different Vladimir Putin. Marco Rubio tweeted this weekend. We are not dealing with 2008 Putin. There's been a lot of conversation about that. And I don't like doing remote psychology, but can anyone be confident in our assessments of his decision making? And what's different about the version of Vladimir Putin that invaded Georgia that took the region of the caucuses and this Vladimir Putin in your view? So let me start with talking about some of the military operations because we shouldn't underestimate the Russian military. Absolutely. That's dangerous. Right. We should not underestimate him as a paper Tiger and discount them because they're capabilities are advanced. They're definitely underperforming, but I think a lot of that has to do with the political leadership. This is just my analysis. What will likely find out is that Putin gave explicit guidance on doing at least a light touch on the cities. So initially, the aerial bombardments and the cruise missile strikes were on military targets and not on populated areas. That's now shifting. So that's the political leadership's fault. On the military side, they've clearly been way too rigid. So those airborne operations were intended to go in uncontested. In fact, that was clear almost immediately that the Ukrainians were going to resist. And those forces were annihilated. But we also see that the Russian military operates in a consistent way where they seem to realize that there is no appetite from the Russian population for anything more than a peacekeeping operation or at least there wasn't before. They did not want to communicate to their soldiers that they were going into a hostile environment in Ukraine. And the POWs that are being captured consistently say we were on a field exercise then we were pushed across the border as peacekeepers and they were not expecting a fight. A lot of them didn't even know that they were going to Ukraine until they arrived in Ukraine, which is shocking. From a western military perspective to not share that kind of stuff to not prepare your force for combat would be the highest form of negligence. So that's on the military front. But for Putin, I'll tell you that Marco Rubio, frankly, doesn't know what he's talking about. It's kind of frustrating to watch him spout off what we would call is like, you know, secret squirrel. He's got some secret information that he's like, you know, sharing the most watered down version to indicate that he's in the know as some sort of political tool. But it's kind of meaningless, except for the fact that it could be significantly misinterpreted. For Vladimir Putin over the course of his tenure, he's becoming increasingly belligerent. He thought he had Russian power on his side to achieve influence in his region. He tried to muck around and Ukraine's elections resulting in the orange revolution in 2004. Then he started to use his military force because economic coercion wasn't working. Political coercion wasn't working to retain a sphere of influence. So he went to war in Georgia to substantiate that Russia deserves a sphere of influence. And over the course of the next, you're more than decade, he's been increasingly increasingly aggressive with little response. And the reason he did that is because he just wasn't facing significant opposition. He basically believed that there was a lacquer resolve to face up to him. And really what we see unfolding today is a combination of both a deep misconception of the west to defend its interests because it was inconsistent to say the least in the past. And then a deep misunderstanding of Ukraine's independence and willingness to resist and all of these things coming together into a huge, huge trap for Vladimir Putin. He's consolidated the entire free world against him in condemnation and in action, so that's the sanctions that are unfolding. And these weapons provisions that are unfolding and that's something that ultimately he might be remembered for both this horrendous war, but also for bringing the democratic world together in defense of our values. And you're seeing it from unexpected places. A colleague of mine Peter baker tweeted that in almost every way Putin seems to have achieved the opposite of whatever he ostensibly wanted. There are more American troops back on the continent, the west is more united. You're seeing Luxembourg and Switzerland getting involved, which if anyone's paid attention to World War, Switzerland getting involved is a pretty big deal. So what should the United States be doing now? We see broad support for sanctions. We see broad support for the types of economic means that are taking place right now. What should happen now? So first we should probably understand that this is still early days. And Russia is getting deeply frustrated. And all of that seeming restraint is going to evaporate. We see that today already unfolding with bombardment against Ukraine's second largest city harkey with a population of almost 1.5 million beautiful city that's just minutes away from Russia's border and the Russians have been attacking it for 5 days with little success and now they're starting to press with multiple launch rocket systems and stuff like that and aerial bombardments. And they're going to start using things like thermal barracks, which are like firebombs and Firebase kind of artillery to put it in layman's terms. And these are going to inflict significant casualties in collateral damage. And of course, they're also doing this nuclear saber atom, which we need to keep in mind. The nuclear saber rattling shouldn't be completely discounted. Of course, we need to be mindful of it. Mindful of what it means for the regime that Putin feels like he's getting backed into a corner and that he needs to make these kind of warnings. But we should also be mindful of the fact that there is deep precedence for this kind of behavior. There is deep presidents for the Soviet Union and Russia and for Vladimir Putin, who's a cold warrior with a deep memory of the Soviet Union and the Cold War, the use of this kind of nuclear saber rattling, it's a deterrent. It's meant to signal both a seriousness, but it's also meant to achieve an outcome. It's supposed to make our minds in the west race to the worst case scenario. And self deter. So the things that they can accomplish through force, they could accomplish through coercion. We need to be mindful of it. We need to take the proper posture, we need to make sure that we're serious, but we also can't simply buckle on the things that are so dear to us because now this is not just a fight between Ukraine and Russia. And this is a fight between good and evil. This is a fight between democracy and authoritarianism and right now the ability to kind of roll back sanctions is going to be contingent on Russian actions. It's not going to be contingent on Russian threats. You ask what we should be doing now, we should be locking down the sanctions where basically almost at the limits of sanctions. We've gone a long way, but there are still able to accumulate resources through the trade of oil. But if we develop alternatives, we could probably sanction that and really crater the entire Russian economy. It's really devastating, and that's why the markets have an open. That's why the ruble is at an all time low by a wide margin. And then on the military side, I think it's important to point out the kinds of things that are critical and deep need by the Ukrainians. So they actually need something as basic as helmets and body armor. They've had tens of thousands of people volunteer. And they're not equipped to provide body armor and helmets to these new civilians that are now going to take up arms. So they need that kind of stuff. They need more anti tank capabilities because the Russians still have more resources. They need more air defense capabilities. So they stingers, the U.S. is now providing them directly, which behind the scenes I'll tell you, this is something that I thought we should have done a long time ago. I was advocating for it in government. And again, I was getting those quizzical looks. Why? And my response is because the Ukrainians are going to need them. But we're past that now. We need to drop these incremental approaches that are intended for kind of peacetime environment where new Cold War, and we need to flip the switch if the Ukrainians are asking for resources, we give them these resources. We're not parochial about, oh, we don't know if you could use this capability. If they say they want it and they're fighting and we're not, they're the ones that are bleeding, we give them what they want. That's where we need to provide some additional help. I wanted to ask about the economic question here because we've seen Russia's economy go into freefall before in the late 1990s. And as the ruble destabilizes, my concern here is that putting the Russian economy into freefall makes Putin all the more powerful in some ways. If everything is going wrong for Putin, doesn't the nuclear option become more attractive. When you have him trapped in a corner, so to speak. Does that make him more of a risk? The answer is yes. The answer is absolutely yes. But that's because Putin started a war. This is why I was jumping up and down about doing more to avert this. Not waiting till after the war started to start sanctioning, but doing some graduated options along the way to signal a seriousness. In hindsight, when the history books are written, we'll have discovered that we fell well short of what we could have done to avoid this. We're now in it, and because there's a war, the risks of increased, but what are our options? Think about from the U.S. perspective, are we on the ground? No. Are we providing substantial material support? No. We have no place to go. Our alternative is to apply pressure on Europe, and of course we played a significant role in the sanctions front. Not to be negated. But there is not much room for us to kind of backpedal. We don't have a lot of room to reverse course. And we can't do it under our fear of Russian provocation. What we need is some clarity and some signaling from Russia, they're prepared for off ramps. Because we could start getting into our own heads and start offering things that may be meaningless. We will be negotiating ourselves, which is everybody knows is the worst thing to do. Now, what we need to do is we need to keep signaling the fact that we're open to a conversations, we're open to some different discussions that is a door that Putin could choose to walk through, but we can absolutely can not negotiate against ourselves because we don't know what's going to be effective. As soon as Putin indicates that he's realized that he's not going to be able to achieve his military objectives, that the base of his support within his population is crumbling, which is not clear yet, there are protests, but we're not there yet. But he's ruled for this long on really the basis of two promises. One is no war and other stability with some economic prosperity. Now, he's failed to deliver on both. He's basically brought around the worst thing that Russia's experienced in many decades. It may very well end up being worse than the troubled 90s as they're known. So it is a very, very difficult situation that Putin's putting himself in. He's definitely getting backed into a corner and our job as a U.S. government is to indicate that there are ways out of this thing. It's not going to be what he wanted. It's going to be far from his maximalist solution. He may even have significant reversals, even those Russian controlled territories of Lagrange and Donetsk might very well have to revert back. So it's going to be something that's much, much less. But I guess I'm giving you a bit of an optimistic view that we're past this. Russia has a enormous amount of combat power. And it's going to get brutal and this fight is going to get real ugly. Ukraine is still outmatched in terms of capability. They have much, much greater morale, which accounts for a huge amount of the success on the battlefield, but it's not a done deal. And Ukraine needs all the support we can get. I'm curious, how is Twitter and social media changing the conflict? We're seeing videos and comments being taken out of context. But it almost feels like Russia's losing control of the misinformation disinformation war. On the Internet. That's another really interesting question I've been thinking about for a long time. So what was interesting that we saw unfold over the weeks preceding Russia's war is every time Russia was preparing to conduct a information operation or a some sort of attack or a provocation, the U.S. very, very quickly, declassified the information and allowed the media to kind of magnify it. It's been highly effective. You have the U.S. closing off options for Vladimir Putin. Undermining his ability to indicate that Russia is fighting a just war, which is required for his own population. And undermining the pretext for warm. And that is going to be something that we learned from and carry forward. On the information disinformation stuff, we're in the fog of war, I've been victim to a couple of these types of things. I pick up on something and I do what I guess I've always done. I take some personal risk and don't look to protect myself to the maximum extent I just try to get information out and that's going to result in some mistakes, but we're in the fog of war and I'll take the hits. So let's talk a little bit about the domestic implications of the invasion. Most people know you from your testimony and president Trump's first impeachment trial, which was, of course, about Ukraine. Thinking back on that phone call you observed between Trump and president zelensky in 2019, how do you think back on that call now knowing what's happened? It really does put everything a whole new light. So it was always about national security. For me, there was no political angle whatsoever. It was always about national security. It was always about the inevitable conflict of Russia against Ukraine, Russia seeking to retain control of Ukraine to pull Ukraine back into the sphere of influence and Donald Trump undermining U.S. foreign policy. He was national security because I understood that this would be really dangerous for the U.S. for Russia to conduct a large war against Ukraine and that the Ukrainians needed to be armed to defend themselves to deter Russian aggression. And when Donald Trump basically froze, I mean, not basically when he froze the security assistance, he was sending a signal to Vladimir Putin that it's okay to attack Ukraine that the U.S. isn't resolved to protect Ukrainians interests that Ukraine is isolated, that Ukraine is vulnerable. That sent the signal to Vladimir Putin, kind of incrementally adjusting his calculus. Is this opportunity real? Because the needs have always been there, right? He started this war in 2014. The need to fold Ukraine back in was there. It's the opportunity that was unclear. And initially, he started to take the temperature checks certainly under the Trump administration with the Ukraine scandal and the president's corruption and abuse of power when the Senate failed to hold Donald Trump accountable that opened the aperture for opportunity. By the time you get to the insurrection, that's it. That was probably right about the decision point. He knew that he wouldn't have Donald Trump as president. He knew that he wouldn't have Donald Trump willing to break NATO does wide reporting now that Donald Trump was keen on pulling us out of NATO. So that's what Putin was looking for. And in the absence of that, the insurrection was probably, I mean, we'll see, you know, these things will have to get declassified eventually. But I think that was a big tipping point because he saw an immense vulnerability in the United States. He assessed that the U.S. was distracted enfeebled, paralyzed. That the U.S. wanted to focus on long-term confrontation with China and was looking to normalize a relationship with Russia. And that's when he started to build up. That's clear. He started to build up in the spring of 2021, and that this operation has been planned for more than a year. And he was taking the temperature of the Biden administration. Are you seeing if you could extract concessions from the Biden administration? There was a summit in December 2021. He started ratcheting up the pressure and last thing to mention on this domestic politics. We are a superpower. What we say matters, what we say is meaningful, not just domestically, but around the world. And when Fox News, when Donald Trump, when Mike Pompeo, when Tucker Carlson encouraged Vladimir Putin encouraged Russia, that's meaningful. That's meaningful because it, again, opens the aperture of opportunity. It's what drives Putin's calculus to conduct this operation. And it's what undermines the turns. So when President Biden talks about powerful sanctions coming when we start providing assistance to Ukraine in the December January time frame, counterbalancing that are these anti Americans because they're fighting against American national interests. That is what ultimately takes us to the point where Putin is already thinking in that direction. He sees the opportunity to his undermined and I imagine that somewhere will learn that he gave a good maybe even weeks ago and we're putting the last pieces together. I'm curious this to your thoughts on that because we have seen this seemingly rapid change of opinion from a large swath of the what I would call kind of the anti anti Putin right where it's so much so anti Biden and so much anti this administration that it becomes supportive of Putin. This idea that he is secretly very strong and secretly very wise, which goes back to Trump and goes back to this idea about strongmen. But I do want to note what influence do you think that those viewpoints will have, they're not the majority to be clear among Republicans. But what influence do you think they will have on American interventions? And how does anti war sentiment play into what America does next? So let me start with saying that this is a moment for unity. This is a moment where we need to invite the Republicans even the ones that were denouncing Ukraine, days or weeks ago. It's the time to invite them to redeem themselves and to provide support to defend U.S. national security interests. This is the moment. But I could also tell you that there'll be a reckoning. It's like these folks, for some reason, missed all the telltale signs of the fact that they're walking into an ambush. And that's what they did. They walked into an ambush. They were touting an elevating and idolizing Vladimir Putin days, hours before their attack. And they'll pay. They will pay for that at the election boots absolutely because they own it. I explained that library Putin was taking the temperature check. To figure out if this is something you could do. And they gave all the signals. So they have blood on their hands. This war is on Putin, but they are in part responsible. And they will be held accountable. I think it's hard to not see every channel, including Fox News, cover this, and this may be a way that it starts to lift the fog of Trump and trumpism, at least I hope that it's the case. I think this.

"A virtual reality service for collaborating together and doing work. It basically gives you the opportunity to sit around a table with people at work and brainstorm and whiteboard ideas the apps puts users in a virtual conference room complete with whiteboards at avatars whose mouths move when they speak mark zuckerberg told reporters that facebook has been using the tool internally for six months the program is currently in invite only beta. Facebook is not giving time line when it might be released to the public. This one's interesting. Because i actually had a discussion with mark zuckerberg one hundred fifty years ago saying. Why isn't there facebook work. Why and they didn't want to do it. They were busy busy doing regular facebook. And i'm like well. Aol did the same thing. Aol at work that fell apart because they had a big outage the day like the week. They unveiled it. But i was like. Shouldn't you have a work version of it. And then there were a lot of companies that were like facebook there were. I can't remember all their names that were and you could say slack is that to or hammer was another one. So what do you think about these. And of course. There's the michael douglas movie software luger disclosure and it was about that they had a workplace kind of thing and that was the big software around it so one reporter who tried this said he felt more president horizon workrooms than zoom. What do you think about this. And why have they moved into this space. Well there's a lot of money in the enterprise but it's also like the enterprise could be the killer for vr. So right now. Facebook is actually selling more oculus headsets. The most people understand like giving them sold about eight million of the things which is not bad for a product that i think if you stop most people on the street have never heard of it. So that's actually going pretty well for them but right now the main use cases are like right. So it's a little business right. It's not it's not. Yeah it's a little. It's like the fastest growing business. They have maybe. I don't know what probably one of their rat. Businesses growing faster. Oculus is growing really fast. So they're investing a lot in it but what is another reason why people would buy a headset while if it helps you get your work done and maybe your work buys you a headset. And now you're having all your meetings in it know. You could see why they would want to do it. But you know i mean. I've talked to zuckerberg about this. And he believes that in the future just more people are going to host their meetings. This way has said. Facebook is going to be a remote. I company and that means designing better experience than the ones we have today. Like zoom is fine but zuma's limited and he wants to push against those limits. Why does he just by zoom. I can't buy anything kenny. He tried to buy a dying gift. Search engine and the uk for eight months and was like no. You're destroying the markets. You how anyone to compete in a world where facebook owns. A gift would agree. I agree i agree. It's they can't. Yeah right so and obviously microsoft has its work areas and stuff like that but they do have oculus which is the idea. This is how work stuff it's not going to be zoom or you're staring at like a brady bunch level of little square you're going to have you're gonna be as if you're in the workplace in you'll be wearing some sort of glasses that makes perfect sense and it's been talked about in sifi for decades like more than decades and so are they the ones to do it. I remember him very resistant to the idea. And he's like that's not what we do. Where consumer product. I'm like i know but like you could do like eight. Aol tried it and it was actually great idea. They just had a bad execution owen. Van is the one that was like laughed at me and laughed at me and so did mark so it was interesting. I mean i don't know. I i mean i would be interested in. What year was this because he probably did have four hundred things you need to before. He built an enterprise social network but then he built all those things. What's next thousands in the early. Whenever i met him. But one thing that is brings up a lot in these interviews. Is that before. He started having meetings in vr. He just couldn't remember anything that happened in a meeting because he was always physically in the same place and he's just staring at zoom screen. But you get into this. Vr world on. You have spatial audience. If somebody who's sitting to your left you hear them more on your left ear visiting right. you hear. you're right here. And all of a sudden he felt like he was a real meeting and he tried. I have so. I have a question. I have played around with a bunch literally while i was asleep so i've not tried it yet when you try i want. They're not gonna let me try it. That's why i need only talk to you casey. Do they know you live in my house. Do they know that. I some of them. Do i mean. I tell i tell a lot of people because it's a great conversation starter. People are like what is she really liked. It is as much meaner in person. You're lucky she only says what she says about you in pre. But here's the deal. I think this is a big deal. Who else should i mean. Obviously you microsoft microsoft you know they had holiday. They had the whole hololens. Whatever the heck the holiday should have though from star trek the next to the office they do. They know that they have ends. There's apple's got to be in here with. They're more interested in a are and things like that but a lot of these companies to kika an amazon. I can't imagine they wouldn't dabble around in this stuff. Or is it just because they have oculus. The smartest richest companies believed that. This is the next hardware platform right. Desktop pc's mobile phones. And then it's going to be mixed reality. So some combination of the headset goes over your eyes and glasses. Everyone's building all of these things. Some companies like facebook and snap are working in public data releasing. Snap these iterative things that they're not very functional now but at least you can hope to build some early momentum and get developers excited so that's kind of how snap picker playing it and then you have apple running traditional playbook of we've built a layer four hundred feet underground and we bring you know rotating groups of employers. Who don't know what they're working on. And somehow together. They will build the heads of the future. So we'll we'll see what happens but yeah. This is the hardware thing to watch snap and apple or more in a our side of it..

They did nothing wrong into them. I feel special and loved by god when they struggle hard to even see it for themselves on top of that. I used to think that women need to be modest when they dress up. I stop thinking like that when i hear a woman. Say you know. Men can't help but lost girl needs to cover up because the men in church gonna go after. I have to admit that. I make assumptions like that about her husband. Stay with me here. This might get a bit bumpy. I'm seeing what i'm saying because i'm worried about so many women right now. The church you see. Some women can't believe that all men lost if the men they know the closest either don't lust or they have control over their desires. Women who are in marriages two good men who do not struggle with lusting after young girls usually don't see things like that girl needs to put on more layers. She is tempting me out of my marriage. I know a lot of good husbands in single guys and i can vouch for their character. Because i know that they want to protect a thirteen year old girl in youth group who may be dressed and reviewing a little too much stressed scandalously and you know refused to get new shorts and yet when some people post about men fraying on young girls pure many women blame a girl because the cleavages showing the skirt is too short or that she eats too much and the curves and the stumbling blocks are two round snout raymond. I remember one of my good guy friends. He wants posted yet. Hashtag me to all the half naked girls in the super bowl commercials. Well done. y'all done to you too. Man you've just gas. Let all the women in one of the biggest human trafficking industries ever. You essentially told every girl didn't want to dance in the super bowl. That is their fault. They didn't cover themselves up. You said it's their fault Horny you said it's their fault. Mint tricked and kidnapped them. You said it's their fall that they're just half naked in the first place. Screw you seriously ladies. If you're part of a group thirteen year old girls are super bowl. Girls are taken advantage of by men who prey on them. You need to leave and fight to get the victimized women. They're friends of yours out of that situation. In fact all the woman out of that situation. That's not a safe place if you have a daughter a sister or friend in those kinds of situations. There's something really wrong if you believe that. Men can't control their urges and it's a woman's fault for their irresponsibility. There are good men who can control themselves. I'm a sexual if the menu no have mentioned your whole life. That boys will be boys if they tell you that all men are visual and automatically lost and women have to do it. It takes not to be stumbling blocks ladies. The problem in the issue is not you. It's us the men men in this situation. Get away with lusting in sleep with whoever they want. Even if the girl is years old saw patriarch in politics and many many churches pushed this idea over and over. They saved women. All men lust. They blame you ladies for sinning just because of what you look like. This is why rachel held evidence. Keeps calling her curves stumbling blocks. Were supposed to believe not like me at all. So if i keep seeing men can't help it or boys will be boys to beautiful ladies will be inclined to believe what i believe in live in fear and guess what evangelical books pushed the lies while in these books. Captivating walden hard there are no men in control or a sexual or even. Lgbt men who remains celebrate trying to see god the truth is all men. don't lust is not inevitable. Less does not every man's battle stop saying that if a man knows a girl is thirteen it is actually very easy for most men not to go after her or even touch her because they know what happens when they do i know is easier to make a teenage girl escape than to admit to men in churches that there's a problem whereas jesus in all this. What would jesus be saying. Ladies if you're married to someone. Ms uncomfortable flirting or sleeping around is being excused. Get help call the police talk to your friend. Is the men constantly make a woman or little girl uncomfortable or let other kinds of lusts slide or try to ski Women because of how they dress or look around men. That's a red flag that no one is safe. No one is secure in that spirit filled community. No one's even accepted there truly. We all need to know the truth. Jesus values in loves women.
