"And <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Silence> <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> <Speech_Music_Male> <Music> how would <SpeakerChange> you advise <Speech_Male> university to tackle that. <Silence> <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> I hate to say this <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> because it feels slightly disloyal <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> to my profession. But <Speech_Male> i think it comes from <Speech_Male> <Speech_Female> an narrowly <Speech_Female> legal interpretation <Speech_Female> of risk. <Speech_Female> So i think <Speech_Female> that you know if you us to lawyer. <Speech_Male> What's the best <Speech_Male> way of protecting <Speech_Male> the <Speech_Male> confidentiality situation. <Speech_Male> They would obviously <Speech_Male> right. Get somebody <Speech_Male> to sign up to a <Speech_Male> confidentiality agreement. <Speech_Male> Because that's the legal mechanism <Speech_Male> to do it. <Speech_Male> Be question marks bone foreseeability <Speech_Male> ba- <Speech_Male> questions about whether they actually <Speech_Male> changed behavior. <Speech_Female> I think institutions <Speech_Male> need to see <Speech_Male> risk and abroad away <Speech_Male> though because yes. <Speech_Male> There's the <Speech_Male> legal risks that somebody's <Speech_Male> going to <Speech_Female> reveal to the <Speech_Male> world that they've been through a <Speech_Male> difficult case <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Female> they think the universities <Speech_Female> handled it. <Speech_Male> But <Speech_Female> i think that there's the <Speech_Female> wider risk of people <Speech_Male> just seeing as having <Speech_Male> something to hide <Speech_Male> even when you don't <Speech_Male> so. I <Silence> think as i said in <Speech_Male> the blog <Speech_Male> i wrote my feeling. <Speech_Male> Is you need to be <Speech_Male> able to explain to <Speech_Male> people <Speech_Male> what you have done <Speech_Male> to deal with <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> this really really very difficult. <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Scenario <Speech_Male> set of scenarios <Speech_Male> about sexual <Speech_Male> harassment <Speech_Male> rather <Speech_Male> than relying on the ability <Speech_Female> to to hide it. <Speech_Female> I think legally <Speech_Male> that's always going <Speech_Male> to be something that's recommended <Speech_Male> but actually in practice <Speech_Male> it doesn't work. Let's <Speech_Male> find a better way <Speech_Male> of explaining <SpeakerChange> what <Speech_Male> universities are doing <Speech_Male> here. Just want to pick <Speech_Male> up.

"Scooter braun whose justin bieber's manager. You might not know his name. But he's a big big manager in hollywood. He's confused about his feud of taylor swift. That's how you know his name. He bore taylor swift's stors all her recordings. I think it was six of albums. Taylor went absolutely crazy. Some people say rightly so now. Scooter is to say the following quote.

She refused and he offered to sell her her back catalogue. But she's saying not quite so fast so in november when the story broke she said that brown basically did this behind her back and she wasn't allowed to buy her own music. She said the following quote. So i would have to sign a document that would silence me forever before i could even have a chance to beat on my own. Work is crazy that she didn't own her own work. Legal team at the time told her is absolutely not normal to sign an nda like that and nondisclosure agreement and said basically this is the type of document you get someone to sign after sexually assaulting them and paying them off and she said that she would never sign it. These masters were not for sale to me. I think taylor here. I'm not sure. I believe scooter. And even if cutest telling the truth this is not gonna help you. Stop. it's over you did this. You made a lot of money. He's already sold them again so he's made hundreds of millions of dollars taylor swift there sort of winning too. So don't feel batches re recorded all her old albums and she's going to re release those. So i think here we can feel okay for both people but definitely there's something a little

Reduce No-shows, Fill the Schedule, and Improve Patient Experience with Michele Perry
"Back to the outcomes rockets. All marquez here. Today i have the privilege of having michelle. Perry on the podcast. She is. The ceo of relations has sast based patient centered. Engagement company that utilizes a modern and mobile first approach to improve patient and provider communication. Michelle perry has almost thirty years of experience in software and health technology an undergraduate degree from the wharton school at the university of pennsylvania and her nda from harvard business school. Just the the important topic around how we communicate patients effectively. And how do we do that at scale. It's going to be a great talk and michelle super excited to have you join us today. Thanks for having me excited to be here absolutely and and so before we dive into the awesome way. You guys engage patients at relations. Talk to us a little bit more about you. Michelle wu spires your work and healthcare the patient. You know really. This truly has to be about the patience to have been easier way to access healthcare This pandemic has shed light on. The fact that truth helped get a truly is about the patients. And that's why you know. I joined a company named relation relating to the patient and focusing on the patient. How do we make it easier for the patient because anything related to health care is high and so why don't we make it easy. Yeah and i think the nature of kind of how healthcare works and fortunately that it's complex And the need for that expertise of simplifying and getting a message to the right person at the right time is critical so michelle talked to us about how relations is adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. Exactly what you just said you still my words saw. It's all about getting the right Right message to the right person at the right time. And you know the industry's been a little too focused on patient portals and just dumping information they're figuring out the patient would find the information and it's just not working you know we need to make it easier both for the practices and health systems to make it easy for their patients to access healthcare. And we need to do it in a way. That patients are use to communicate. Say and we all carry this phone You know there are a few people in the country maybe not for the most part people have a phone kind. You know in their pants pocket or in the hand of something all day. So how can we make it very easy using that mobile device to get them just that right information and not a data dump just the right information at the right time. Yeah and so there's a flow you know. There's there's a step by step process that kind of we go through when we get care. There's a scheduling. There's there's actually going to see the clinician where you wait. I guess there's a lot of waiting and cars now with with the pandemic reminders etc. So there's a lot of touch points that potentially league we could miss and so talked a little bit about what you feel makes relations special and different than what's there today. Yeah so you know. Unfortunately healthcare has so many rules and regulations Starting with that introducing some of this technology to be patient facing can be really non thing and then you add all all the communications laws which tcp a of the can spam and. This really seems way too. Risky move forward and health care. So that's where many practice of just put it in puerto new best enough but the adoption and usage of portals. It's just really low. So what we focused on is making it just easy to get the critical information at that point in time. Whether it's about an appointment to make sure that you know it and confirm it and we have best practices where we combine own email and chat messages over the course of five three one day to get the best response rate and to get people if they can't make it you know to cancel reschedule and get them back on the calendar that you can get waitlist filled spots that they laughed and moving all of that so really combining all these with one platform that can make this really productive for the practice which would make it productive for the practice can make it easy for their patients totally.

Just What is Going on at the Esports Stadium Arlington?
"Sports stadium in Arlington is the largest Esports arena in North America this week. They laid off almost all their employees including former president. Jonathan Ogden Josh. Whose been at the Helm of the company for the past few years made it clear. There was plenty of discontent behind the scenes. He tweeted quote would love to talk about what's happened a t Sports stadium and my fears what will happen with the new Direction off all the details but need to tread lightly from a legal perspective and quote in other tweets. He makes it even more clear that the exit wasn't pretty and that the new leadership represents a drastic change from the team driving the stage over the last few years. The new president will be luke Bauer Bauer doesn't have much experience in E Sports at all. Jacob Wolfe tweeted yesterday quote Bauer is a 2020 University of North Palm. Just graduate and Linkedin shows experience running a pressure washing company power is a friend of Luke lights means and quote. Luke is the other figure involved with the company and he's a bit controversial Thousand Years. Apparently the grandson of Ray Davis a majority shareholder of the Texas Rangers who helped launch the venue according to Woolf the current CEO of Esports Arena Arlington is Neil Lyman a minority shareholder for the Rangers. And if that name doesn't ring a bell, here's a refresher Infiniti sports and entertainment. That's the company that bought optic gaming back in 2017 and made an absolute mess of it before selling it off to a mortal's about two years later. Now, it seems like Neil is taking another popular is Esports institution run by a gaming veteran and moving it in a direction of wage earner nepotism Bauer didn't interview with Kevin hit at the Esports Observer, which I will link below in it hit questions Bauer about an odd tweet from Luke leitzman lights been again appears to be Bridge between Bauer and the Texas Rangers owners who are making the decisions here lights been tweeted and then deleted e Sports Stadium Arlington will not at any time require requests or inquire about the vaccination record of anyone. I will be buried in the ground before this changes. That's just an odd statement to make from a public health perspective, especially as venues have been one of the hardest-hit industries by the covid-19. Demek Bauer claims lights been does not have the authority to make that call but his entire page was wild with feared claims. And now as I searched for it today does not exist. So weitzman's actual role at the company is not clear whatsoever. Jonathan quotes who did the article and said there is much much more to this and is in no way being transcribed fully booked. It's not a fault of hit. Of course. It's a fault of Bauer who just is not going to provide the full situation. We likely won't know the full story until Jonathan's NDA expires, but for now given meals poor history. Use words to say the least. We certainly aren't going to give him the benefit of the doubt here.

His company is called ethical holdings sold the master rights to taylor's first six albums to an investment fund called rock holdings just seventeen months after scooping up big machine label group and remember that was a saga in itself.

My legal team said that this is absolutely not normal and they've never seen an nda like this presented unless it was to silence an assault accuser
There's no way to move PS5 games off the SSD
"See what we discuss first. Let's just go down the list for ps five. So i do want to say if you are somebody who is easily offended please. Just don't stick around. Because i that's not how i work and i get it that we have people that come into the channel for these guys and who maybe are accustomed to the way i talk which is like a lot of jockstrap humor and shit. But i'm not going to sit here and lie to you about any system or at least what i consider lies just going to tell you exactly what i think of them. And what. I what i like dislike and that doesn't mean you will feel the same way. It's just exactly what i think about these things. So just wanna prepare people. Because i said this in the video my thoughts are very divergent. Compared to a lot of other people and i'm not saying they're wrong and i'm not saying i'm right but i'm almost saying that and i do. I wanna talk about this and see if you guys believe a couple of things that were seen is just what we've seen in the past in reflection of hyperbole or if i'm wrong so we'll begin first thing i'm gonna talk about you. Get this system. Ps five we're going to talk about for secret ps five. I'm going to do a video on this if you don't wanna be spoiled about the ps five. Looks like which would be weird. You can wait for the video but we're going to talk about this. I get this thing home. And first of all i just have to say man. I don't care what anybody says. It's fucking ugly the. Ps five is horrendous. It's like a kid who worth fire. Bridgeton could ruin at a router company and then watch lord of the rings like ten times in a. That's just the way it is. Do i care no. I don't care at all. it's it's funny. We can tease it. But i played the dreamcast played. The game cube game cube was a fucking cube. Like that's all it was. It's not these things for an artistic representation. I don't want it to look like a flower bouquet. So i got this thing at home and i opened up massive. It's ugly as fuck. It's got these huge gulf wing kind of things off the top. And i gotta tell you. It doesn't look good no matter where i put it in my house anywhere i. It was bad enough that my wife was looking at it and just being like damn son that is fucking ugly and my wife is. She married me like she's used. She's accustomed right. You're talking to somebody who wakes up in the morning. Fuck and goes into. My boxer takes his pissed. She's had to see that she's had to see ugly. She seen in probably lived through the sins of man just by knowing for a year and even she looks at this fucking thing. And it's like god damn. Can you hide it so i have hit it. That is not a ding on the. Ps five. i don't care. Because i don't think the. Ps four or the ps three. George foreman grill edition. Looked fucking awesome right and the xbox original with its sort of boxing look wasn't necessarily You know awesome so you get this thing home you look at it. You got usb on the front. You have the on the back usb on the fronts usb see as well as which is nice to have a ac- that's where you plug in your dax which by the way people were wondering if digital audio or digital analog converters work. I've plugged in a couple and the have worked on the. Ps five guess on the ps four Was a little little heggie so those worked so you get this thing home you plug it in transferring your old. Ps four stuff to your. Ps is definitely a little bit more cumbersome than the xbox so i don't know why but they have a lot of and this is something you'll see in the overall they have a lot of nested and bouncing menus where you're like over here then you're all the way over here that kind of stuff but got it set up and i moved my stuff over. And it's like you can take your ps four hard-drive plug it into your ps five. And i'm like that's awesome. I plug it in. My aren't showing games are showing saves. Aren't showing. I realize the only way to transfer it the way i want to is to plug it back into the. Ps four sign into that use gamertag. Then plug it into the ps five then. Transfer the stuff that. Ps five then go back to the ps four then plug it in then reload the other gamertag so some some of mine which have nda's on him some of my Games i have to play on a particular gamertag. That's like you know. Just jargon right it's like not me. It's not when i share with these guys because you'll be playing an nba game. That was a little rough. I got it figured out but it was just a little bit weird and just a word of warning man. Don't throw your. Ps four hard drive on your ps five and like reformatted or something because you might reformat another profile that's got some saves on there that you might wanna try transfer over but you get it up and running you look at this and i gotta say man. We've seen this you i. We've seen the videos. It's just a you. I don't care again it's just you i but it's not it's not great it is also missing some things like themes and stuff which i thought was weird because that was a big thing for sony. Those are missing currently But it's it's overall about the same really. I mean like you go up and then it's the same thing you see on the ps four. Your tiles right. The only thing is is they've now got two lines of like they've basically got two lines of tiles. You've got your top tiles and then when you open up game you've got your bottom tiles which includes a thing called a switcher which somebody else's mentioned so i don't want to talk about because i don't there's some stuff we can't cover right now but it allows for you to switch between games not quick resume by the way there's no such thing jumping in there playing it using that. Ui stuff you've seen. It's pretty much what it is if you like that kind of stuff that's great if you don't you're not gonna be able to get away from it but i just don't see a lot of people i don't know about you guys. I don't spend a lot of people in the. Us like a lot of time in the us. It's not something that i'm gonna. I'm gonna fred over so getting this all set up and going i another thing. It's cool to the touch like it's it's pretty much like the ps or like the xbox series. I saw some people say in both were overheating or both were hot and i saw some video. Ps five possibly on a shelf store shelf somewhere where maybe they had sort of contained it on purpose to see what would happen and basically says ups was hot. Turn you know like at adequate ventilation
Dr. Joan Palmiter Bajorek CEO of Women in Voice on Linguistics and its Place in Voice
"Know that's now I. I. Kinda WanNa. Go back a little bit because you're a linguist. And I mean I don't know how you characterize yourself to characterize yourself as a linguist. Yeah. Usually when people ask me say I consider myself primarily a linguist and researcher those are the two core identities that I inhabit most of the time. Okay. Great. So What originally got you interested in linguistics Yeah, I mean I think. I. Consider Myself as being linguist when I was little I like played with code things and you know babbling around I started taking French quote unquote foreign language. In Middle School, I would have been like eleven and. I just thought an unlocked, the coolest world's travel and culture, and you know my parents have always really prioritize travel instead of like buying a big screen TV's let's run off to Thailand So that kind of interesting language culture has always been there for me. Actually, my mom found his old document of mine working career stuff for high schoolers where you like plan out potential career directions. Apparently on this document, I circled linguistics French, and photography as the three things I was interested in which ended up being my undergraduate degrees, my master's degree. Topics right there. In my teenage years, I knew. That's perfect. Yeah. Well, maybe maybe we do. I. Say there's a sense that we ask college students to make decisions about the rest of their lives. You know it's such a young age but maybe we know at least some of us know much younger. I feel like I got really lucky I feel like. I. Don't necessarily know the names of the topics but I feel like there's a light at the end of the horizon that I'm walking towards at all times sometimes running a mostly walking in just knowing that directionality and honestly the privileged to be able to pursue the things that I'm so passionate about. Now given the you've spent so much time. Going into linguistics study research have you had time to keep up with your French photography? My I I taught French previously to pay the bills in my graduate studies and I worked in France between UNDERGRAD and graduate school. So I'm was very proficient I mean, my dad hopes one day become famous photographer. You know as a retirement career but no, I have A. Busy schedule today and those things take away backburner. Got It. Okay. So you started out French in photography you moved into linguistics and why don't you share with listeners? What some of the areas of study you focused initially and then how that evolved. Yes. So I don't masters in linguistics from UC Davis. And they did a really phenomenal job of forcing you to take all the courses. In the range of things I was always really interested in phonetics and sociolinguistics, but taking morphology and Syntax and typology natural language processing was of course it was very new at that time. And really. It's when I started actually studying to a link goes interfaces from a LP phonetics standpoint that I felt like I had a moment of like wait a minute. This is a big data multi-lingual back end. Used by millions of users worldwide. Like who is deciding what good enough means for the Audio You know At that time I focused a lot on ed tech but I think the multi lingual multi modal interfaces that I was looking at Babbel Rosetta. Stone presented at Rosetta Stone really thinking about the research that space blew my mind that was back in two, thousand, fourteen, two, thousand, fifteen. Yeah. So When you think about those systems because they've been around for a while and some of them very good is that a stone has been doing this a pretty high level for a long time before we had cloud computing to new redoing this office CDs. Because I remember. At least one of my daughters maybe both of them took a couple of full programs you know through. through his stump Are there elements of that that of of the language learning process? You think that help move the industry forward or was that always just sort of a fork in on its own I think. Educational Technology has such power especially in twenty twenty. You know anyone who has kids I don't finds this stuff wonderful I think Rosetta stone you're right I think back in the day was really innovative software I haven't seen significant innovation in the last decade I can't I'm under NDA can't tell you what I told her engineering team but my research that is public I mean the. The back end with they're doing the acoustics in the visuals that they show users and most users aren't linguists. An most users aren't fun additions like me. Or mostly incomprehensible. So I felt like there was a huge mismatch between what the back end was doing in the educational pieces of it. Could you actually learn and get better at your pronunciation from these tools? Right. So that's that's a critique on the application of the technology though correct? Yeah. Is opposed to the core technology in terms of being. Listen and. and. That's what I. Mike Critique is the scaffolding or like how it's structured could be significantly rated and their companies like Elsa and blue canoe that are doing the work to make it interpreted. Because we do have back ends that should be able to do this very well.
Crime Boss, James Whitey Bulger
"In the kitchen of seven ninety, nine east. Third Street in Boston Fifty Five Year Old Boston crime boss Whitey Bolger said across from John mcintire he felt nothing but hatred. He knew that McIntyre agreed to talk to the DA and there was nothing that Whitey loathed more than a rat. A cool breeze rattled the window on that day in November nineteen eighty-four McIntyre was handcuffed and chained to a chair. Whitey set his MAC ten machine pistol on the table and told him that they needed to talk. Knew, he was doomed. There was a reason why Whitey had become the kingpin of South Boston. Lording over the neighborhoods loansharking bookmaking truck hijacking and extortion rackets, and it wasn't by showing mercy. He knew that even if he was somehow able to talk his way out of the situation that was nowhere to run. By the end of his career Whitey sanctioned hits as far away as Oklahoma McIntyre. Himself had even been involved in weapons smuggling scheme into Ireland full Whitey. No less. His boss was an international criminal. The great irony of course was Whitey got away with all of his criminal enterprises because he himself was an FBI informant. Whitey had grown up in the projects with an FBI agent named John Connolly. To him. Whitey was more than just a valuable pawn in their war against the Italian mafia, and for Bolger, Connolly became his `get-out-of-jail-free card and it was connelly who gave him the tip that one of his guys McIntyre was talking of course only those in White T.'s inner circle new of his deal between Bolger and connolly besides who would suspect Whitey of talking he was the gentleman gangster who bought Turkeys for poor South Boston families on Thanksgiving, the man who was a fitness. Nut He didn't drink or smoke the same Whitey who for all of his wealth and power still drove a Chevy Malibu and lived with his mother nearly until her death in nineteen eighty. Whitey, was a Southie boy through and through no, one would accuse him of talking to the feds so why he ran southie and that meant he had all the tools in his pocket, the power of the FBI and the power to do whatever needed to be done to anyone who crossed him. In. The kitchen John mcintire shook his head apologizing over and over again he told his boss. I'm sorry. I was week white. He wasn't interested in the apologies he needed information. He turned the conversation to ask him questions about what McIntyre told the FBI. NDA and then oddly his questions shifted back towards business McIntyre was entrenched in Boston's drug trade Whitey. He had been forcing South Boston's drug dealers to pay him rent for working his streets and he wanted to make sure he was still getting his haircut McIntyre spilled everything both what he said to the feds and about the drug industry he held back nothing by the time McIntyre was done talking Whitey was satisfied. He calmed McIntyre down in assured him that they were just going to send him away. Once the heat died down, he could return to Boston somehow whites he managed to convince McIntyre to come down to the basement with him. and. Once they were downstairs white he tried to strangle McIntyre with the rope. But the rope was too thick. All it did was make McIntyre. throw-up frustrated Whitey grabbed a gun and shot him with that bullet. Whitey used his position as an informant for the FBI to kill another enforcement and the FBI had helped him do it. People like John McIntyre. What collateral damage the cost of doing business ultimately McIntyre's death meant nothing to Whitey. In fact, he went upstairs and took a nap a ritual he kept after every kill. Meanwhile, two of his henchmen buried the body
Ex-adviser to first lady: Working for Trumps was a 'mistake'
"This is from page. One eleven of Stephanie. Winston coughs. New Book Melanie and me thirty five days before the inaugural. She says back in New York. I attended a meeting with president-elect trump in his office. The space was packed with. Boxes Trinkets and piles of paper and I thought I was a hoarder his office looked like a garage sale. Stephanie Donald, said tell me, what's going on with the inauguration planning Ivanka joined. Donald than me for the meeting I presented to the two of them. I grabbed my binder over to Donald Side of the desk and sat with my knees on the floor. He sat in his red leather chair leaning back clasping his hands ready for me to proceed Ivanka hovered over me. I. Went through hundreds of pages covering all eighteen events Ivanka made comments and ask questions will there be a red carpet. Where do we walk during the prayed? What about seeding at the swearing in after party? After the parade on Pennsylvania Avenue? Donald said quote I don't want floats. I said, okay. The president continued quote I want tanks and choppers make it look like North Korea There was no way. He really wanted goosestepping troops and armored tanks that would break tradition and terrify half the country. When he vodka North Korea she didn't Bat Ni-. I walked out of the meeting ruffled and worried. I texted close friend and colleague quote. North. Korea style military parade. Bad idea. That's just one of the anecdotes written in the new book by Stephanie Winston walk-off Cough farmer friend an adviser to first lady Melania trump smoke off. Of course, also played a key role in organizing the trump inauguration and twenty seventeen that has led to so much consternation and so much legal trouble ever since she has written the most detailed account of all of this in her new book, New Book called Milania and me the rise and fall of my friendship with the first lady joining us. Now for the interview is Stephanie Winston Will. Cough Miss walk-off I really appreciate the the trust it takes to be here I know you could be anywhere talking about this. Thank you for being here. And thank you for having me so much Rachel really. So that wouldn't rather be anywhere. Else Else I you to say that. Obviously there's a there's a lot here. There's a lot that's very raw here particularly about the distress. About the dissolution of your friendship with the First Lady of circumstances under which he left the white. House. I want to talk first of all though about something what you describe about the inaugural, which is really never been publicly described by anybody involved in it before you're pretty frank about the idea that there's a lot of missing money unaccounted for money in terms of what was raised for the inaugural versus what was spent. Do you feel like you have a general grasp how much money that might be do you have a theory or any knowledge of where it might have gone? Well I do know that at the time that I questioned where the money was going or how much everything costs I was asked to not attending meetings. So. It took me a few years to figure everything out. But it's just you know. People need to just follow the money. In terms of who is following the money it's remarkable that you describe the the difficulty and the decision that you made to cooperate with these multiple ongoing investigations including the Attorney General and. Having received a subpoena from Southern District of New York I know that those are ongoing proceedings and you're limited what you can say but do you feel like the people who are investigating this at various levels? Know what happened to the money? Do you feel like the investigations are on the right track in terms of them, figuring out what happened to these millions of unaccounted for dollars? Unfortunately with our Justice Department right now, I don't really know entirely what's going on, but some of these investigations and that's really sad and challenging place to be especially since this elections right around the corner. I do know that Joan Cari scene is still estimating is still open but as far as the southern district, I don't know where that stands as well as the intelligence May. Have you been has the White House contact you since your book was on track to publish since people started to realize what was going to going to be in this book has the Justice Department or the White House anybody else in the trump administration contacted you. I've actually been contacted by both the White House and the. The Justice Department. Can you tell us anything about either those communications for starting with the White House in terms of what they, what they wanted to communicate to you or what they asked if you? A couple of months I had to cease and desist as well as. Again, the last thing that any of these people want is for the truth to be told. I have lived with this shoulders for the last several years trying to make sense of it all trying to understand what happened. While I was working at the inauguration, but also what happened? While pressure fielding amounting around. Your nine ninety and releasing of where hundreds of million dollars was spent. This is you know it's like Donald Trump is the best game three Card Monte, right? It's like. Everything's a shell and everything's going in different directions chaos is just part of the game. As you said earlier I love it. You know only the best and Quite, a bit quite a bit of the best. You drive in, cow. Sorry didn't mean to interrupt. Please carry on. No No. Politics. This delays very awkward. The satellite delays made all the worse by all. Kofi driven Gremlins in terms of remote studio. So that was my fault. I'm sorry. Let let me just ask you first of all to go back and say whatever you wanted to finish in terms here thought there and I'll just ask another question which is If. The White House was telling the truth when they put out public statements denying that first lady, Melania trump, and the president had no role in planning the inaugural and that the when the White House when the White House said, they didn't know about any concerns about budgeting or how much things would cost or how things would be carried out during the inaugural. Your book would seem to give lie to those statements and make clear that the when the White House said those things that those aren't accurate. The machine of the false narratives that gets created by the White House is so overwhelming and so. Powerful and the fact that people really believed when you look around of the people that were actually involved in planning inaugurations if they're gonNA, pin it on me, is that was Milan. His friend. Works Right. Right in the quarter Malaga's friends the only person willing to help her and. You that's fight light show right on me without in calling me and asking me if it was So my integrity, my reputation everything was destroyed in a matter of seconds and. It was as if no big deal just flip, often move on. And I wasn't prepared to do that have I didn't feel sorry. Having the opportunity to tell your side of the story and to explain what happened during the inaugural to explain even what you could tell was happening with the financials of the inaugural being able to put in this book. Does it make you feel. Not I guess not protected in any way but at least does it make you feel like you're in a stronger position because at least now, you can articulate what you saw where you came from and what your side of it feels like a lot of the frustration that led to this book is feeling that you weren't allowed to defend yourself. And I'm still relying on First Person Council I'm still not allowed to say everything so I'm saying as much as I can within the law I. Think that being muzzled with an NDA for all these years it has been Ostra phobic to say the least I stopped living regular life by a free children a husband I really I sort of locked myself in. And it's amazing to me that I'm part of the three different investigations yet I'm witnessed all of them and it. It really is a raid of Shenanigans and I feel that the trump presidency is just leasing our country and I had no choice to not tell the story. I had to be here. Do I feel protected? I actually do feel more protected because now everyone knows the truth. and. I've been able to share my life story with what happened because it took over my life and. Am I you know. It's complicated.
Is the Microsoft Surface Duo worth the hype
"I. I want to jump off today because I'm just really excited about the surface duo and I want to brag about the fact that I have one you guys don't. But more more than that I want to talk about how this phone is. Finally here, I can't talk about the actual software yet because that's being held under NDA for future time however, I can talk about the hardware didn't on boxing on the site it's you. Saved this video from complete failure. Thank you for that but it's a it's a really interesting product and opening it. I kind of get the impression that. Microsoft. Is They're really trying to accomplish something very different with the duo than they than say Samsung is with its Z. folders e flip series. And I wanted to get your guys impression especially Jerry like from productivity perspective when you see the. When you see this duo in action and you've seen people's in my in boxing and a bunch of other people's what are what are your first impressions of it now that it's sort of out of the realm of marketing materials. It's it's hard to. Figure out. An exact, use case. To me but I know I would I don't. I. Don't see the value in having a big single screen that six and a half inches wide or you know something crazy like the fold I know a lot of people do. But the way I use a phone I would rather have. Like a split window at all times, I could have. You. Know maybe a phone call open and. You know the other side maybe I'm looking in my car insurance or Something else you need a password manager on one side and a browser on the other I find myself switching applications a lot more than I would. You. Know. Then I WANNA have one big huge application. And I I mean I'm not. I'm not really. I haven't made up my mind about the hardware yet I think there's a lot to like here. It is so wide though just from like a put it in your pocket and just confuse your phone perspective like out. Oh, you're over the next six. This is about it's thicker. It's wider than the next six to Lord and. Yeah. It's. It's definitely something that you have to get used to. And I just wonder like what are what are your? What are the sacrifices that you are willing to make in order to? I guess play with the latest and greatest try to to see what's on the vanguard of of mobile technology. Like would this be something that you could deal with? Do you think? I mean I I, really enjoy a small phone and I say that somebody who's been using the note twenty zero for the last couple of weeks. So guess you know I I'm getting used to it but The width more than anything really gives me some pause when I think about like could I actually use this my life? I really like a narrow phone that I can just. One Hand and still scroll with my thumb or whatever I need to do. Really the something like the. Z. Fold to give me a lot more excited I do think the surface duo looks just super super nice. It looks beautiful But yeah, that size is really an issue for me and I'm I'm Kinda with Jerry like the the whole to gigantic screens being they're unhinged. It I'm sure it will work really well for some people. It's just not really from the adult think but I also haven't gone hands on with it. So who knows I mean? Maybe maybe having one at hand change my mind. Jerry when you think about the next generation of smartphones, right? You know we're we're constantly talking about how? One one paradigm has ended and you know there's all this grandiose. Language around like you know the regular smartphone, the the Candy Bar, the Glass and metal. Is is dead and how we have to look forward to what's coming next and what's coming next folds in half and it it flips around than it does all this all these things on hinges. It acts more like laptops and and. And sort of like books to some extent, and I wonder when you think about that and you think about how the human mind performs tasks do you think that that this change is conducive inherently to making us more productive or is it just encouraging multitasking? And the kind of multitasking that we all do on our computers every day, which is we have three or four windows open and we frantically switch between them because I know for me that's exactly what I do on my laptop.
NBA mock draft: Anthony Edwards or LaMelo Ball as top pick?
"Minnesota Timberwolves had these third worst record this season but won the lottery last night and we'll select first overall in the upcoming NDA draft. lamelo ball has been consistently ranked in the top three prospects. This year's draft and is now projected to go number one overall in this warnings latest mock draft. So Shannon showed the wolf take. That's the question. SKIP. They moved heaven and earth to get the annual Russell. They have Kat Karl Anthony towns they have Andrew. Wiggins. Mellow. Foot. Compatible with very creative thing is that shot is on off the dogs like his brother Lonzo. Beating, people out the dribbling what's the unknowns they've only seen him for twelve games. Now, he's relatively nineteen years of age I. Think Turns Nineteen Couple Days Tomorrow Okay, yeah? But if you look at it all the top picks, you look Anthony Edwards, he's a guard top top in the when he was player of the year this year I think he's I think he's a three and then James Wiseman. semple. Put One. Nineteen and ten before he was A. Re declared ineligible Yup. Could Lamelo in the Angelo play together? Bass. The question skill that really that's what it comes down to. It's not about Oh, man, he was good. He can do that Kenny play together because you gave up and you have this guy he on Amax Contract Dry d? Rosana mags contract Anthony towns. contract. So Somebody willing to move is somebody will wars the Melo over that? No more big deal with me. So buddy I I would I would move. But if I if I gotta stay there probably I probably would take. I'm taking him I. Don't know what it is about me and these bonkers.
Anjelika Washington And Toya Turner
"I know right now. I gotta I gotTA. Take a little pause in between because I know right now. There's a lot going on. especially when it comes to the black community and we have the protests were also hit with the pandemic, but for me it's very important to have those little moments where you can take a little bit of escape and you know just the mental health. Check a little break, so this has been my new obsession and I love this, and in particularly because of my guest, because from what may reason I can't figure out how she makes a two piece protective suit with Vibrant Green Goggles Lecue. I can't I'm still trying to figure that one out, but she plays if you don't know. She plays Ben's chapel and also doctor midnight. Spill more secrets as we get into a little bit of the season is out, but I'm Steve. I can get her to give us some more secrets. You also may know from tall girl. I am talking abou the wonderfully talented actress. Anjelica Washington hand how you doing. Yes Can you hear me? You cut out? Yeah. I can hear you. Can you see this this? Guy's ACKNOWLEDGEE. Now. Here work this L. Agai. Perfect right. So I WANNA start off by the top first of all. How you doing just case surviving kitchen technology. We got to repeat it I'm great. No, you're fine, thank you. That was so sweet I just caught you right at the tail end when you're talking about tall girl and I was like Oh my gosh. Yes, I love that Thank you so much. That was so sweet and thank you for somehow thinking I may make my super suit. Suit look cute I mean I'm just grateful I. Have a Su so when the poster came out, I was like I. Don't know how she's making this little cute, but I need retail the to go out retail therapy right now. Try to get this like it was so cute and you don't get to see that all the time like we'll. We'll get into a little bit later. I know, but it's. It was just so cutaway came together I. Oh. My Gosh, thank you I, so appreciate that and yeah skin, too. But I want to start with because you know I always want to start with this question because you never know who's listening who it may help in everybody's stories different, but if you don't mind, just give us a little bit of how you got into acting. How you knew you wanted to add. How did you know how the opportunity of star girl come up where you? Yeah I. Well I got into theater as a little kid, I did my first play when I was eight years old. My mom put me in it as an outlet because I was such a talkative child Going into. Class no that always be looking Joel she's a great student. She just talk so much, so my mom got me. Into! My first play so I could talk more and do that outside of school. And then I got really really obsessed with ulcer chilli-eating, and then when I got into high school. Actually got a D. in drawing and painting. First quarter of my freshman year. Because I feel like he was judging real harsh on my stick figures, but it is only not to stick figures. Come on. No I'm like I'm such a backdrop for it really terrible, but with that being said there like you have do. Something else is another thing you WanNa do and I was like well I daring play eight and I love theater, so I joined the theater program at my high school, and I literally became obsessed with it was like what I eat sleep and breathe and Yeah than the rest is history. And then I begged my parents to you know. Let me start getting into acting and. Eventually they did and I moved to La Right when I turned eighteen. And here we are, the rest is history and as far as the role for star girl goes It was a very normal experience for the most part except for the fact that I had no idea who I was playing, but like I just got. From my agents and It is what it was. I was confused a little bit at the time because at the time. Star Girl Rip the Disney movie was auditioning. He just auditioned for that so. What what's going on and then I? Saw alyx Geoff Johns. I was like. Oh, my gosh, it's it's. It's the comics I had to look up the comment and all that I could not be out who I was because when auditioned the characters name was Rachel and there's no rain anywhere in the car, and there's no Rachel in the show, so I was so confused like who is Rachel Girl and then it's a code name. It's what they do when you like auditioning for. Like Superhero staff like DC and marvel, because you don't want anything to get out, they don't want anything to be leaked. Always WanNa did that well okay? Exactly into and also like onset anyone who came set like my mom came to set my Auntie came to set. They all had to sign NDA's. Like the moment they step foot, not even is a full set just like in the parking lot. You have to India immediately. Everything is like really under wraps really top secret and. Yeah I found out I was GONNA be better chapel, and as really excited. I was so amazed that she has like forcing natural hair. Just like me and I was going to ask you about the, but I'll let you go ahead I. I got a question about that. We what about it, but yeah, it was so exciting for me and so yeah, here we are. The rest is
Vocalis Health CEO Tal Wenderow
"County. Health is actually an Israeli. Start up with our in the clinical de Science in Israel headquarters out of the Boston area. High actually leaving Newton outside of Boston and what we're doing can think you know that vocal by Maka right so we analyzing the voice and we collate that to disease symptoms and conditions and what happened is Which not only we walk in disruptive area by trying to learn and teach democracy new vocal about a mock we kind of disruptive ways so two point two full months ago a we merged two Israeli startups beyond verbal. Health is for both do in the vocal biomarker space to foam vocalists company which is not a trivial thing to do to get to startups together. That each one they can change the world. Come to the realization. I cannot do it by myself right with. Find the right partner to do that right. But it's all about people so Mike Mike Partner in crimes shoddy facilities actually physician that he was the CEO of Elsa mice and we're both raising money and we met not together but we met in Israeli one of the leading Israeli. He'll stick fun named Aimal Alot. Nda distractedly decided to enter voice face in healthcare but there are looking for the right company. And the Roy. Who's chairman of the board right now? Said we don't know which one to pick if you merge invest in both of you. Yeah sure that's not a big deal. So so so. That's why he's sounds like it's not a big deal but it's usually. It is a big deal. It is a big real so that was probably June shoddy and I. We met two days later on a good cup of Espresso couple of Russell. In four weeks later we presented to investment committee and then a fortune lawyers to cover. It took US another three months to close but we were done after. One are right because it makes sense. It's not just because we got the money. We can do to realization one. If we don't match we'RE GONNA compete with it right so you know it's it's
What We Learned from the Harvey Weinstein Verdict
"Women who came out with allegations of sexual assault against Harvey Weinstein were some of the biggest voices in the metoo movement. But even some of them were worried that he would be hard to convict this week. A jury found Mr Weinstein guilty of First Degree Criminal Sexual Act and third degree rape counts joining us. With more is Wall Street Journal Legal Affairs reporter Laura Cousteau Laura is this a watershed moment for these kinds of cases. It really is. I think as you said Culturally this was already a really central sort of touchstone over the last couple of years. He was one of the most high profile people to be accused of Sexual assault by dozens of women but it wasn't clear that that would really translate very well legally and it wasn't really clear how much had resonated with people And so what this case which had some very complicated. Very difficult facts. Facts that would have probably precluded a conviction say five years ago This really kind of showed that it has actually really kind of changed the culture and Change. The legal system with the idea of the casting. Couch has been around for decades and in many cases. Weinstein claim that many of these were consensual encounters. How is his case shifted? How Society thinks about what constitutes assault or even rape. Yeah this is what made these cases one of the things that made these cases so difficult. A lot of these women had long term relationships with him long term romantic relationships. They needed him professionally. They continued to talk to him. After the assault they continued to correspond with him safe for new affection of things to him. And that's a very difficult set of facts and I think what the me to me too. Movement really opened up. Was this idea. That complicated facts are life complicated. Facts are part of sexual assault. They don't necessarily mean that it didn't happen and certainly experts. I talked to said they. Just don't think that that idea had as much currency a few years ago as it does today have we seen sort of a ripple effect and how businesses deal with these problems. Yeah so absolutely. We've seen changes in industries everywhere from Hollywood to the fast food industry and some of these changes have not been necessarily voluntary states have changed rules including New York which now requires sexual harassment training There's also been an uptick. Empl in in cases in employment discrimination cases being brought Which is of course also led to changes in behavior you know. Hollywood is a great example of this where it's a lot of it is also just changing the culture. Where in Hollywood? They no longer have meetings in hotel rooms which seems pretty intuitive but was pretty much the norm for a long time so yeah we've seen pretty widespread cultural cultural changes. One of the big hurdles the accusers had was that many of their claims were from incidents that happened years ago. What impact has this case head? And do you think will have on the Statute of Limitation Laws? So we don't know I mean. Of course it's it's just a you know twenty four hours later but there is a sense that this is going to prompt states to look at some of the things that made this case so difficult to bring forward so one of those was the statute of limitations another was nondisclosure agreements. Many of these women had signed and D. A.'S. Which precluded them from coming forward speaking to the media bring civil cases and so there is some hope from experts that. I talked to who would like to see these kinds of changes This will also be something that they can highlight and say These are changes. We need to make to make these kinds of cases easier to bring. That's right just last week in the Nevada debates we saw Michael Bloomberg get called out over these as I guess. The question still has has the metoo movement changed how lawyers and businesses use or will use. Nda's it's very tricky. So New York state changed the law and said you can no longer require employees to sign. Nda's around sexual assault but they said unless unless the employee wants to and that creates a sort of tricky situation where employers may just not agree to a settlement at all if an employer doesn't sign an NDA according to lawyers. I talked to so it's very still very tricky to get this right but certainly experts that I talked to are hopeful that if we make it much more difficult or impossible for employers to require NDA's when their Employees are alleging sexual assault That could also be Something that helps protect people in the workplace if people know they can't hide behind these kinds of NDA's you've spoken to a number of experts. This field is there a sense that this conviction will have ripple effects and prompt more women to come forward both for criminal and civil filings. So there definitely is a sense of this that that you know. I think women often saw these kinds of cases as hopeless. You didn't see. It was very hard to get a successful conviction. These kinds of cases they they were kind of notoriously the he said she said cases. There wasn't physical evidence if there was if there was a complicated set of facts women would often just feel. There's no point in coming forward or a lawyer. I talked to said women would off to come forward. Make that first phone call to her and then change their minds and not want to deal with the repercussions But there are certainly others who I who. I talked to. Who disagreed with that? Who Said you still saw? These women get really eviscerated on the stand. Have Their sexual histories uncovered? Have there have being serve accused of selling sex? And so you know that that may still give some women. Pause Wall Street Journal legal reporter Laura Consist. Oh thanks a lot. Laura thanks very much.

"WNYC studios. It's Thursday February twentieth. There wasn't moment in last night's debate that Harken back to a famous exchange between Megan Kelly of Fox and Donald Trump. About the way he talked about women that was way back in the first debate in the twenty sixteen election cycle but this one was between. Msnbc's how Jackson and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Several former employees have claimed that your company was a hostile workplace for women when you were confronted about it you admitted making sexually suggestive remarks saying quote. That's the way I grew up in a lawsuit in the nineteen ninety S A quarter to the Washington Post one former female employees alleged that you said quote. I would do in a second. So Democrats expect better from their nominee. Let me say a couple of things and I can have my full minute quarter. Thank you I have no tolerance for the kind of behavior that the metoo movement movement has exposed and anybody that does anything wrong and our company. We investigate it and if it's appropriate. They're gone that day now. Maybe it's a testament to the Democratic Party that he couldn't shrug off the question by insulting Rosie O'Donnell like trump did for years ago but let's zoom in on this exchange from last night after. Halley Jackson asked that question between Warren and Bloomberg concerning his treatment of women employs who have filed suits against his company specifically on his company's use of nondisclosure agreements. Bloomberg responded I by describing A lot of hiring and a lot of promoting of women at his companies and Warren followed up and. I hope you heard what his defense was. Women.

"You mentioned before that there was this moment in the cab or they realized that they couldn't speak anymore. What why would they weren't supposed to talk about it ever again even with each other? That's the impression they were left with. Whether that's what it said in the in the docket we don't know but the impression they were left with is that the the cloak of secrecy was like a heavy heavy-weighted blanket and that they couldn't they were terrified terrified to break it down. What convinced them to speak out? Now you mentioned Jodi Kantor of the New York Times well it. I mean it is interesting to be talking with people about why they can't talk. Yeah no you at some point you say but but aren't you breaking breaking it right now So you've got two very different people so Zelda Perkins very spirited she. She decided at some point enough time had the past and she and she needed to speak out she'd she'd reached a point where she wanted it out And she wanted to change to happen. She was aware we're that reporters weren't we're trying to tell the story And so she took. She just took a risk. She thought was important. I did it because I thought that public opinion would protect me and and I hope that if I stepped forward any other women had signed agreements with Weinstein would would feel safe enough to step forward to Jody canter founder asked to see her. They met in London. And it's in London Moore's L. The says okay and then she opens her purse and pulls out these five crumpled pages and says says this is all I have have a look That was a huge moment. Ruina in the early days. She was not going to go on the record really wasn't until Jodi Kantor and Megan twohey of New York Times after they had broken the story through some of the most meticulous investigative reporting I mean really like pounding the pavement really meticulous reporting. It's not until they were putting their book together. When Ruina decided she had to talk and she'd sort of been inching your way towards doing it She was and continues to be fearful of repercussions to speak today. It's another breaking of my day keeping a secret for twenty years in that way makes it very difficult to wake up one morning and come out and speak to a reporter She has a lot got more. Potentially on the lines says her parents are very traditional She says that comes with more of a sense of shame. So I should say we we of course have reached out Harvey Weinstein in a number of ways for his lawyers and then eventually people from his Public Relations representing terms of public relations relations. Got Back with a statement. Kind of interesting It says quote neither Mr Weinstein nor his representatives will be making any comments on these matters. I hope you can remain objective..

"Can you tell me what Ruina told you about what happened to her in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight at the Venice film. Mm Festival sure she. She says it was the second night That she was in the suite with Harvey Weinstein going over the scripts again. This is the night shift from ten PM to two am and she maintains it he. He started the way he did the night before. Sort of making inappropriate conversations. He asked me about my boyfriend. We we had been working mostly on the bed in half sitting on the bed and the scripts were spread out on the bad. He had taken his clothes off so he was naked so he requested a massage from me which I was reluctant to give him. I'm here asked me to take off Some of my laser clothing saying that it was war in the hotel room or that. I'd feel more comfortable apple if I took off more close and eventually She said you know I. I'm going to have to take off a pair of nylons and and I say it like that. because she had worn two pairs of tights that had been room as of course to where more close around Harvey Weinstein. And it's unclear when you're in the film industry. How much of that is a job? And I thought well weren't doing home if I would actually as a clothing on and if something terrible were to happen It made by me time. There were these little wisdoms. It sounds like that the women and were passing amongst themselves. Don't sit on the same side of the couches him where puffy jacket where you can know this. They maintain This is how they sort of managed to get along so he he got. She took off one pair of tights. She says to appease him more I you know the way she described grabbed it. Was You know if I do this. And then we just keep working. Maybe I can. I can distract that and this this will be enough and it will quiet him and one thing that I think was important for. My personal safety is not outrightly. enrage him but I think that Harvey light to think of himself as seducer. So I think if you keep manage to keep things calm and keep things pleasant you can try and talk your way out of the situation. At least that's what I thought he then took off. She maintains her second pair of of tights and she told us she was terrified. that he that her underwear would be next at night to him. Pending against the bad and and asking for just one thrust and saying just one thrusted over and she said no The didn't happen. She managed to get off the bed And she managed at some point to get out of there but said it was completely terrifying. And and a key point about this is when you hear about Harvey Weinstein and the the actresses who have accused him. The situation is different. You you have actors offers Who are with him for? Perhaps brief meetings with the young assistance went through. They tell us is that this was their employer who who they saw all the time. It wasn't taking meeting. That becomes a a horror. It's it's someone you you kind of have to see the next day And so there was they they described this over and over again. This sort of balancing act. I try to make sure that he didn't get outright angry And he thought it might be in future opportunities for that night. At least you can escape right. That is an extraordinary detail. But she wore two pairs of tights. I can't can't imagine feeling like that was something that I needed to do to protect myself on a daily basis are often from my employer. The terrible situation I understand. He also remarked on her necessity. Yeah I thought I found it interesting. She said that he eluded several times. Terrific he mentioned how he liked Chinese goals because they were discreet. Um He would say that in public but then in private you know that would be twisted around to be You know the he'd never had a Chinese go and that he wants to try.

"Adrian thank you so much for not at all on the PODCASTS. Always a pleasure to have you here I WANNA start with Rena. Choose Story. Who who is she? Why if we go back to the time we're talking about? which is the late nineties? She's twenty four years old She was a graduate from Oxford and English literature. This is a young young woman who got you know really a dream job. which was the second European Assistant to Harvey Weinstein at Miramax? In those days Miramax films. uh-huh was a company that everybody wants to work for bringing art house films into the Commercial Space. So that meant Being in a tag team situation with the first assistant and I was a woman named Zelda Perkins also very young and it really. It sounded incredibly glamorous. Traveling with heavy to various European film festivals. Sometimes is visiting film. Sets from Miramax Films will being filmed in Europe and at night. The sort of the routine was the first assistant. Zelda would would go to fancy events with him while the Second Assistant stayed back and reviewed the scripts. I felt like at a young age. We would have a say we would You know be influencing the next film that Miramax tax-funded so we could be big job. And then when Harvey Weinstein would come back from these events. There'd be a switch over in the second assistant would work with him directly Ackley from about ten pm to move to a going over those scripts. Okay so that's who she was it was. She was a young woman with a fabulous education and a agree. Joe It does sound like a dream job when did she. I realized that something wasn't quite right though. Well working with Harvey Weinstein. She told us is that that she had heard rumours. We knew that he had a legendary temper. I did Understand that there will be no element of my job that would be about managing harvey POPs. Managing has inappropriate comments but she was also told that you know if she handled him the word she used was robustly. She'd be fine but you know her very first the meaning of him she says kind of off the rails. I mean the first time they met she What happened? She went to see a screening of Shakespeare in love. Hey essentially ignored us until we sat down and then he ordered me to sit in front of him and she sort of the screening room. Wasn't that busy. There are lots of empty seats so she sat down and then yeah. I thought that I was in his way. And so I try to preempt the need for clarity on the screen and I moved across one and he allegedly screamed ringed her to to stay exactly where she was not move. You know that was really a sense of the the kind of power play that goes on when you're working.

"Seventh of September twenty eighteen and it shows that there was a NDA signed, and now that this was signed, technically neither party can talk about this. So I think the next steps that we're going to see in the coming days coming weeks however long this takes to be resolved. And the truth to be found out is the NBA's going to have to be design. Solved. That's no easy. But I mean, that's the that's the biggest point of the complaints that and that the plate of side, miss my organs team are claiming that the NDA is known void because in the because during the time of the mediation, she was not well, she was very vulnerable and that she was of not right of mine to be signing or dealing in that she had also at the time they're claiming the lawyer was an inexperienced lawyer who didn't know how to handle the case and that she was not in the right mind. Oh yeah. And. Allegedly the lawyer that handle the original NDA was a traffic violations lawyer, so that that kind of tells you there are some questions. However, notice camp is going to tell you that she went to work right afterwards. She went out with friends. She went out with family right afterwards. So if she was in if she was not in the right mind to sign a NDA, how could she be in the right mind to go to work to socialize to see their family and for them to have no idea. And I think that's, that's another argument that the CR seven camp is going to use to keep the NDA in place. So after all this, I don't think we're going to find out the truth if that NDA is not dissolved and discredited. No, I completely agree, but I'm gonna jump to the footy leaks, which release a bunch of emails from the attorneys during this mediation. One of them is another claim. NDA should be dissolved. It was a letter that missing my org. Wanted read to Mr. Renault of to Cristiano Renaldo that offend in this case and was told that this Email was read to Rinaldo, but by the defense attorney by renowned attorneys and the foot leaks revealed that there was forwarded to other attorneys. And he had said Pinocchio, which I intern imply that it was not. I don't know you can. You can interpret that as well as you want. But the one that the most damning document that was released was a set of I want to call them interrogatory because that's why I'm like familiar with it is the questionnaire Marnie know what I'm referring to actually looking at it right now. So in this case, they did not. What's it called? They referred to her as MS see in the questionnaire. There was no names like I believe. In the mediation Christine autos furred to as Tofa. His name is never ever mentioned in this, but in the questionnaire which is supposed to be from Rinaldo says, did MRI ever razor voice, Creamer, yo? And the reply is she said, no, stop several times. So that's the that is the big piece because up to that point almost seems like he said she said case, but that seems to be the damning for those. Who believe they'll to bleed the alleged claim seem to be the most damning evidence. Yeah, and it's it's very, I mean, that answer to the interrogatory is very dangerous for Rinaldo and his cat because it it truly does cast any doubt on his denial that it was was not consensual because if the plaintiff did say no installed several times Rinaldo admitted that she didn't say that, how can you call this fake news? How can you say it was consensual? So once again that that shows that there is reason to look more into it. So my organs lawyer actually filed a civil complaint that challenges the settlement and the NBA itself. So that's going to be the next step that we're going to see in the coming days. Yeah. So. With that claim despite their Spiegel I don't know pronouncing right. Try to follow up with miss my orga. She ran away the try to follow up with Rinaldo. They denied it. They said that this is all fictional that they would sued the newspaper for trying to defame..
