Have we solved the black hole information paradox?

Have we solved the black hole information paradox?

"Universe is full of interesting and amazing things and none more mysterious than black holes and try black holes are these weird corners of the universe where we think secrets lie. We suspect that solution to the age. Old conflict between general relativity and quantum mechanics might lie right at the heart of black holes but of course nobody can see inside them. So it's incredibly frustrating to think that the answers to some of our deepest questions exist but are hidden from us. Does that drive physicist bunkers to know that there are out there but maybe they're trapped in a place where they can never get out. That's essentially the project of physics right. The answers are out there. The universe does contain these answers. And if you can come up with the right experiment you can force the universe to reveal those truth. That's basically how we accumulated all the knowledge that we have but yet frustrating to think that there might be places in the universe that nobody could ever look where information could hide forever escaping from even our most clever efforts to reveal them. You make it sound. Like viz are like paparazzi of the universe. You're trying to catch the universe. He no sunbathing and its portrait. Something i used to think of us as more like murder mystery detectives but yeah paparazzi. More positive way because the universe is beautiful. It deserves our attention. Yeah i guess. They're surprised to being the universe. We're just here trying to enjoy the beauty of the universe. You know and get it signature once in a while so we can sell it on ebay to the national enquirer or times magazine. One of those to whoever will take is part of the freebritney movement. I don't think there's a free universe movement where they're like. Hey physicist leave the universe alone. Some of the mystery no.

How Balanced is Your Reading Diet? - Thoughts from Kevin

"Reach your potential as a leader and a human being. Welcome to remarkable TV today. I'm asking a question. How balanced is you're reading diet? Are you ready well? Let's go all right. We all know that we need a balanced diet right. We should have. We should eat the right kinds of stuff to have a balanced diet. Because we know that what you put in impact your health right but but have you ever thought about your reading diet because what you put in impacts your thinking and your skills so let's just think about this for a second like I don't need to go into the whole dietary minimum requirements. And all that stuff you know that what we read and what we put into our brain as like the protein the vitamins and minerals that our brains need so the question is are we putting the right inputs in right so I want to ask you some questions about this and get you thinking about it because just like we know that we should eat right. I think we should read right to okay. So here are some questions about your inputs question. Number one is. What is on your stack like you have a stack of stuff digital stack of audio? Excuse me of the audio things you want to listen to and the podcast and all that stuff but you also have a stack of the blog posts that you need to read or want to read it but you've gotta stack of magazines books to write like first of all if you don't have stack that's a possible problem. Just look at your stack. How much do you have because just like your pantry has a bunch of stuff? You want to have some things so you can pick. Maybe what you want right now. What's GonNa taste good right now? Right second question is do you have a stack and if you don't have a stack. I'm suggesting you OUGHTA start having one now. Yours don't have to be as unruly unnecessarily as large and messy as mine but you need to have a stack now. Once you've got your stack. The question is how balanced is it? Like if everything on your stack is sort of the national enquirer and People magazine and tmz. Type stuff. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that but like that's not a very balanced stack. The question is if you look at that stack. Is it going to be a healthful reading night? That's the question right now. Not just about what's on the stack because you could be saying the reason it's on the Stack Kevin's because I haven't read it right. So the next question is what have you read in the last week? And if you can't answer that question for you for me readily then one of two things is going on. You haven't read much or it didn't have much impact right now. If you read a lot like I do. You might not be able to come up with all of it feels able. I read some things on this and there is some things on this and to read some things on this like I can certainly tell you what I read last night because it was last night right. I shouldn't have too much trouble remembering that right. So what have you read in the last week? And if you can't really answer that question thing about how much you're reading it isn't enough but also WANNA start keeping a bit of a list right last

The Crown Prince May Himself Elf have been hacked either his phone or WHATSAPP account as some have suggested. Well sure maybe. And it does seem odd that a crown prince would directly actually get his digital hands dirty on the other hand who better to hack the richest man in the world's device than a fellow billionaire who's met him at the places where billionaires go to meet in any case buzzfeed notes Saudi aligned. Twitter accounts have been doing a lot of anti bezos wolfing with accusations of insincerity concerning his expressions expressions of mourning for the late Jamal Kashogi a discreditable personal life. As evidenced by the intimate pictures someone provided to the national enquirer and so on buzzfeed thinks the accounts doing the tweeting are a part of a coordinated and inauthentic campaign presumably directed from beyond so does the United Nations in Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial killings. Agnes Alamar told buzzfeed quote the hacking and the campaign are two actions taking place place alongside each other both of which aim in my view at intimidating creating fear and ultimately controlling or silencing the people who are the object of both hacking and the campaign and quote. Mr Bezos has been the target of such campaigns before. NBC News reported that they began shortly after. Jamal Kashogi who had been a columnist columnist for the Bezos owned Washington Post was assassinated inside the Saudi embassy in taboo a murder which occurred on October second of twenty eighteen twitter at that that time took down a large number of the accounts involved. The platform has yet to take large-scale action in this latest round.

"national enquirer" Discussed on Hollywood Unscripted

"Welcome to Hollywood unscripted. I'm your host Scott to Lal from the Malibu Film Society and today we're going to do something something a little different. We're going to talk about. This shockingly true untold story of the national enquirer from its earliest days in an association with the Mafia to present day connections to president trump all exposed in a sensational new documentary scandalous with us to talk about it director. Mark landsman Kamarck. Thank you so much Scott. Glad to be here sorry to be so over the top but kind of in keeping with the whole team here. It's a slightly over the top subject. So ooh why national enquirer you know the sort of earliest inception to this project. So the earliest ideas I came from just being a person in a grocery store or in twenty fifteen being aware of what was in my visual. I line and sort of noticing that things were strange and unbelievably imbalanced. And that was just. The first thing was just sort of discomfort. I was feeling with the racks at the front at the counter. At the time have language for I just knew that it was strange. But you've been on Shopping Ping centers before why two thousand fifteen suddenly. Well I think we probably all many of us regardless of where you are in the political spectrum realized that something was different about our grocery grocery stores in two thousand fifteen leading to the election. There was an increasing amount of political propaganda. You could say in your face on the covers of our supermarket tabloids Loyd's and that was unprecedented certainly for me but then in twenty seventeen around the holidays. My wife's best friend called and said Hey my dad is coming into town. And why don't we all go out for dinner. So we went. And after a couple of rounds of drinks at the cheesecake factory. He starts telling us about his early days. As a reporter and articles editor at a rising publication called the national enquirer and stories. were nuts off the wall. I mean espionage checkbook. Journalism resum bribery disguises bottomless expense accounts global. Glamorous travel all kinds of ethically blurred tactics. It sounded like the Ocean's eleven movies to be honest with you so I thought well this is fantastic and think too much of it. And then in April of Twenty Eighteen Ronan Farrow Story Broken The New Yorker her and about about catching kill and about am is relationship with then candidate. Trump once ronin story broke in the New Yorker which I thought was just first of all just just an astonishing piece of journalism. This idea of catch and kill was sort of top of mind but nobody quite understood it. I called my friend's father again in his name is Malcolm Balfour and he said we'll just so happens. I'M GOING TO BE IN LA next week. Why don't you come have some drinks with me in some of my former inquirer buddies and so I of course said absolutely and I you did and I sat very quietly while they regaled each other with stories they talk the way that war buddies talk from the trenches? You know these these unbelievable stories and and it was at that point that I knew that we have film and I talked to Malcolm a little bit more and I said you know. Would you be interested in being the first domino in this project. And he said yes. Yes and that's how that sparked the project. Did you at that first dinner understand. What the film was going to be from beginning to end? No No. That's the amazing thing about. But a documentary is that it's a wave you catch the wave but you don't quite know where it's going to take you and it was impossible that points to know what would happen in terms of current events. I mean no one had a crystal ball. Nobody knew the degree to which anything was going on. And it's only in retrospect that you really see there are some fundamental questions that we wanted to answer namely how the Hell how did we get here. How do we get to a place? where the very notion of a fact in journalism is a debate that? There's a question about that that the public doc is getting their information from such diverse polemic camps. How did we get to that that we had a reality Star who previously had been tabloid darling sitting in the most powerful in the world? How did that happen? And what role if any did this quote Unquote Sleazy supermarket tabloid have in that process so it was really kind of wanting to understand history and wanting to sort of connect the dots. A lot of us were just baffled by what was going on. And so that was the impetus for the film. You've described the film as the Classic Fifties Horror B movie talked to us about that analogy. I love the US that question. So I loved those movies right the creature from the Black Lagoon. Goon Frankenstein the where wolf the mummy. The blob does a great films. King Kong is my ultimate favorite. So what happens in those movies right. Originally there is this creature that in the beginning is fairly. I'M NOT GONNA say docile but is not the terror that's about to eat Manhattan right and so the enquirer. Choir really felt similar that I sort of mad. Scientists was many Generoso Pope Junior and he was quite a genius savant he gone to Mit. She was all he was the son of the most powerful Italian American in New York City generous senior who owned colonial sand and cement which poured the cement for for the empire state building among other places he also was the publisher of Il Progresso which was the most powerful and influential Italian American weekly in the country so so he was incredibly influential. Desai was genius his son and he was the mad inventor who created the national enquirer back in the early seventies. His idea for what what that paper would be was very very different than what it would become many decades later under the current leadership. So that's why like in this whole thing to a B. movie. Initially Shirley Frankenstein is not out to kill small children and terrorized the village but the monster becomes that largely because he becomes agitated and he transforms so we wanted to look at how this publication started in one iteration morphed over time and became something ultimately that was deleterious. You've you've just touched on four points. I want to follow up on First among these generals of pope senior engineer or the rumors true well you know. I don't think they're really rumors as much as historical fact. I mean you know. Look either one of them was quote unquote in the mob. And I want it very much. Respect Italian Americans. Who are? You're listening to this podcast. Because I think it's easy. It's just kind of lowbrow to be like oh well powerful italian-american must be in the mob. But it's indisputable that the money that launched what would become the national enquirer came from Frank Costello who was the head of the Gambino crime family and it's undeniable. The general soap senior was the most powerful or false and politically influential Italian American in New York and possibly the United States at that time. So I don't have any other facts beyond that so I can't substantiate journalistically realistically what people say including General Pope's own son was at the paper was mafia related back in the day. So how did that influence surly content if at all well I don't have influenced early content as much as I think that it inspired pope's unbelievable determination and drive if this is a man who truly had an anything for the stories ethos and he didn't take no for an answer and I think that's because he witnessed his father. They're not taking no for an answer. He didn't have to take financer I. It's not an accident that the call him the godfather of tabloids. He's a corleones character. He straight out of the movies and that was another reason why we wanted to make the movie. Because he's a larger than life American character Vito Corleone and he kind of ruled the enquirer like that people were in off him and they were terrified of him. People felt incredibly fortunate to be in his employment and no one bought a car above like a Pacer because it might not have had a parking space on Monday. There was no job job security. He kept you running. He kept you on your toes. He kept you competing with your desk mate. So you're constantly looking over your shoulder. It was not an easy environment to work again and I think a lot of that might have come from some knowledge of how other organizations work. So what are the key turning points in the publication during the Generoso. Also pope years. I think the first key turning point was going to go. We're talking about headless bodies and topless bars that kind of thing that kind of Gore. So when general pope acquired the New York enquirer in the early fifties. It was a racing rag. It had a circulation of under twenty thousand local news news and bats and basically he was really trying to look for a way to boost circulation. How is he going to get eyeballs to this paper? His is father had been ridiculously successful in publishing and he thought okay. I want to step out of my fathers gigantic shoes and I wanted to make a name for myself. And the story goes that he was driving on one of the New York parkways one day in the late fifties and he came across a head on collision and what he noticed was all on the sides of the road. There were hundreds of rubberneckers Angling to look at the carnage and this was a very bloody car crash. And he had an epiphany in that moment and said that's what I WANNA do. That's what I want for my papers. He basically went to crime photographers. He got access to police reports all of this and he began to publish the most graphic the most most violent really the most disgusting photographs. You can possibly imagine man Dr Spike through head. Women's stops child baby burned a lot like horrible all stuff and it was gross but circulation shot through the roof so that was the first big benchmark. Was He understood the American's psyche and at that time the lowest hanging fruit for him was car collisions and murder scene. There's a big transition from that to winding up at the cash register because that's alright grocery stores don't want that at the cash register. That's exactly right well. He wasn't thinking grocery stores at the time that the circulation pop to a million in the fifties it wasn't until the sixties when Americans were sort of going to the suburbs and the classic newsstand when the newsboy extra extra. That was all going away so he was realized. We've a problem on our hands here. Because where are people going to buy our paper and all of our readership is flocking to the suburbs so he and the enquirer leadership at the time identified defied. The one place where they knew that Americans would be several times a week without a doubt and that was the American supermarket and not only did he identify that it was the supermarket where he can get his captive audience but he identified this very interesting untapped piece of real estate which was at the front of every single supermarket checkout counter so he was a bit of a marketing in Kenya so in some ways like a bit of a nostrum we are the magazines typically your grocery store back in the sixties there all the way back by the toothpaste in some weird. I'll that maybe you don't even go to. But he said why would they be there. I wanted to point to purchase and I wanted to be I level in this guy went to mit briefly and was an engineer. So he basically designed the racks the Brexit you see at the front of the supermarkets. That was generous. Oh pokes idea. And you design the racks. So that you would have family circle Reader's Digest. TV Guide but right in the center her front and Center I level in the largest slot that was the national enquirer. And that's win. It just took off but had this bodies and car crashes were not doc GonNa go over well with Mrs Smith in Kansas City. Buying her milk and Cheerios so he had to drastically change his editorial content in order to cater to exactly exactly what she would want. And that's kind of his second big epiphany and his second big genius was who's my reader and he identified her as this woman in Kansas City called her missy Smith and and she was the average American woman he called and he knew everything about her from a marketing research standpoint. He knew we're she shot. He knew how many times a week she she knew what she bought. He knew what she would want to go home and hand her husband to read he called it. Hey Martha the woman would really give it to her husband. He'd be reading it. Would yell across the Room Room. Hey Martha can you believe that they found another UFO in Roswell. He also knew that she went to the beauty parlor x number of times you know a month and at the beauty parlor. She would want to gossip with with her girlfriends about celebrities psychic phenomenon medical cures miracle cures fad diets. So this was kind of a bit of genius because nobody was doing this and so that was the next big movement was getting to the grocery stores and give Missy Smith in Kansas City. Exactly what she's craving and then the next huge moment was the death of Elvis Presley. That's when they realized that they could not only sell a million copies a week. They could sell seven million copies a week and it was said that for every one copy that was bought. Three people read it. So you're talking about you know. Nearly twenty five million Americans.

"Washington Post. He owns a lot of things while she poses even his top ten things he owns, but it's you know, it's got a name. So people realize it, so he is a billionaire times one hundred and recently his marriage fell apart. Is that a nice way to put it when it turned out that he was having an affair with a L A broadcaster. And I remember the story couple of weeks ago was how this is going to be the richest divorce settlement this that and the other. Well, it turns out that even after all that the National Enquirer tabloid newspaper magazine, National Enquirer was trying to extort him was trying to get not money, but preferable. Treatment in return for not publishing damaging photos. Jeff Bezos said the National Enquirer threatened to publish suggestive photos of him unless he publicly affirmed the tabloids exposure of his affair was not motivated by politics basis owns the Washington Post. Its coverage of the White House has angered President Trump a longtime associate of the Enquirer's David pecker federal prosecutors here in New York, the company immunity as part of the investigation into Trump's former attorney, Michael Cullen, but Basil's letter could prompt them to review whether it violated an agreement to commit no crimes whatsoever. I just see the National Enquirer as one of the most sleazy of sleazy tad tabloid. Actually, I wonder if they've they've actually like with your grading on a curve. Now, there's a lot worse these days. Yeah. I don't I still go from like, the when I was, you know, growing up John in the National Enquirer, and I think it's so fitting that the last name Packer. So we go on with the story. And we find out that basis called the bluff basis as you. Going to blackmail me. You're not going to extort me. I'm going to come out. And I'm going to tell everybody exactly what they have. And what they threatened to do to me. Now. Nobody else in America is as rich as Jeff Bezos. No one. But I know that there are a lot of people listening right now. That had inappropriate pictures sure of themselves out there of other individuals, and if somebody wanted to blackmail, you or extort money from you. Trade for not having these embarrassing shameful photos released. Be in the same position as Jeff Bezos to call that bluff is his money issue. You could also argue because he's so much more popular as a CEO. Does he have more to lose by these no money? No. No, no. I think the money is important here because the two most stupid business decisions that have been made over the last twelve months the second. Most stupid business decision was Jeff basis having these photos taken the first most stupid business decision was am I going after the richest man in America because he's going to destroy them? Like, am I the nationalincome fire from choir is dead? They may not know it yet. But they're dead. You've just taken the richest man in America's focus off of books. Whatever it was the Washington Post and has set his eyes are now set on you there double he's hired like investigative investigator. He's got some money. Does matter. I wish he could could've acquiesced for the for the sake of his business. Instead, he I think he sitting a playbook. I think he's here's the thing. If these pictures come out. Yeah. And they would have come out in the inquirer. Right and everybody would have giggled and go look with Anthony Weiner, pardon the pun. But these other ones that have come out with a pictures of celebrities politicians, whatever in compromising positions, and we all gig.

"Eight eight Morongo eight eight eight Morongo. All right now. Jeff Bezos is getting divorced, and it's probably a low. We don't know specifically, but probably because of his extramarital affair with Lauren Sanchez, former host of the FOX show. So you think you can dance? And we know that they had a steaming affair because a National Enquirer released techs and all kinds of I don't think it released pictures yet. But certainly texts of the two steam really texting each other. For example. I'm crazy about you. He wrote all of you. And so I got pretty personal for sure. And this is the National Enquirer that is owned by a very pro Trump. Businessman, David pecker. And he is he's pro-trump beezus owns the Washington Post that of course, has been going after Donald Trump. So you can see the connection of Trump's matter. Fact pecker was I think was he. Convicted or at least he was accused of actually paying the money to stormy Daniels act Trump's insistence or Michael Collins. So the money didn't trace directly, so it's it's all convoluted. But the point here is that they released these tax and then B's those came back and attack them for a political attack and went crazy. And went I got more and more information. I mean, he's fighting with them, then they come back and say we have a we have photos. That explicit ones of the two of you. But I'll tell you what we won't release them. If you just send out a text saying that you agree that we didn't go after you for political purposes. So it's it's extortion, but fairly mild, extortion, they're asking for money. They just want him to say, hey, justed bit that this was not for political purposes. Well, you don't threaten Jeff Bezos under any circumstances. So you know, what he did he released the photos? And he's suing them for extortion. And he found out who and how they got all this information. He hired a team of investigators headed by his chief of security, and they I mean, the photos are and some of them they got from him. Well, in his private server, or somehow, they got through it, they hacked whatever device that he had him on a server, but also they had 'paparazzi photos tracking the couple across five states forty thousand miles boarding private jets writing and limousine going to five star hotel hideaways as a describe it. And also described their arriving together at their beachfront love nest in Santa Monica. I would like to know where the I've been to Santa Monica bunch of times. I don't know where a beach front. Love nest is now American media has issued a statement. He's are the people that own the wire now Justice morning, they say American media believes fervently that it acted lawfully in the reporting of the story of Mr. basis. Listen to this part, though further at the time of the recent allegations made by Mr. basis, it was in good faith negotiations to resolve all matters with him. Nonetheless in the light of the nature of the allegations published by mister big those the company board has convened and determined that it should properly and thoroughly investigate the claims upon completion of the investigation. The board will take whatever appropriate action is necessary. Don't you feel like he scared them? Oh, he, and I don't it doesn't matter. I think he's going to go balls of the wall. Anyway, he has the memo. An attorney that is representing them is the one that extorted him or at least through his attorney and said outright, or I think through a security guy said outright, we will not publish your photos. If you said, if you agree to publish on your blog that you don't think that we did this for political purposes if that's not extortion? I don't know what is. So the takeaway here don't get into it with Jeff Bezos. Although you have to admit that had he had they just released this stuff. Is first amendment, although breaking in hacking into private servers that sort of thing. I think there's an issue there. And I think he's arguing there's criminality here. So and just don't take naked cell fees are. Yeah. That's the other thing. What are you doing sending naked selfish? Come on Marjorie. Does all the time. Okay. I'm sorry. I certainly won't for a whole bunch of reasons. I I don't wanna be extorted. Now, let's just let's just move on. Okay. We're gonna take a break come back the border deal actually coming closer together. This thing they actually may actually happen at least by next week.

The suggestion was that they were supposed to call Trump and apologize for being tough on him and go easy on him on TV or else. The Enquirer published nasty things about their personal lives.

"Coen tape which says that there are more instances that they wanna buy an own themselves and has always struck me as a bizarre way to deal with this because what it does is it identifies for certain that they were doing this for right Trump, whereas otherwise they might have this journalistic nonsense covering it up, but they don't have that. So one of the things I want to talk about his on the campaign trail, President Trump. He talked about a lot of things. One of them, he pushed the conspiracy theory about tech cruises, dad being involved in in the political assassination of John F Kennedy. To what extent do you think Donald Trump had any influence or control over the National Enquirer? Not. Direct control, but how much do you think there was some kind of dance there between the National Enquirer and the Trump campaign? No one has control over the car, but David pecker. Right. So anything they did was with his knowledge with his permission and with a lot of this help. So during the campaign glue Lewis covers that you showed you have to remember the inquirer is really the father of fake news. There's no rule that says, what you put on that cover has to be true or what you put inside yet, the value of that cover is immeasurable. In the matter what goes on, if you see that cover your make your, that's making recognition your brain, and whether you believe that image or not, it's affecting how people think do you think David Packer being honest. Now, do you think he's being truthful or he will be truthful. David peck will be as truthful as it needs to be to be able to survive this, which is. No way to quantify near. Let me ask you really quickly. Would you trust a tabloid during a presidential campaign. What I trust at tabloid now I wouldn't, but I would note the National Enquirer is in in in grocery stores across the country. Millions of people saw those covers the fact that they kind of either they made up excuses about Hillary's health and lied about Hillary's health that became a major issue in the campaign that Trump attacked over and over and over again. And I think honestly, the national choir had millions of dollars in essentially free media attacks on Hillary Clinton. And I think what we're going to find out is how what level of coordination there was between David pecker and Donald Trump himself. I do not think Muller would bring in and media person unless this went to beyond Michael Cohen. There's also a tragic sadness and all this sort of president who is constantly used the term fake news in dealing with mainstream national media relied on fake news like the National Enquirer Stu Zaka near at hand in John flannel. Thank you so much. Fascinating story ahead, a developing story. Roger stone is ready to quote, go to war with Bob Muller and expect to be charged Ken alien joins us with that very latest on his reporting. Also, Florida's Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron descente says his controversial comment was not about race, Michael, Eric, Dyson joins us straight ahead and Kenya. West is defending President Trump, but he's also making big apology. We'll tell you about that. Stay with us..

"McDougal may represent a campaign finance violation. Thanks for your time. Love the podcast, extra question. Look, I think it depends on what the facts are. So one way for there to be a campaign finance violation is if you don't report in expenditure the Tim connection with your campaign, that's how there's transparency in our election process. So if you spend a lot of money on advertisements, that's supposed to be reported. So ordinarily a payment like the one that has been reported here between the owner of the National Enquirer and MS McDougal to buy her story about an alleged affair with Donald Trump and then kill it, what's known as catch and kill ordinarily with no further evidence or connection to the campaign or to President Trump wouldn't be much of anything. As a legal matter, at least on the other hand, as this now newly released tape suggests it's a tape, the Michael Cohen who probably didn't trust Donald Trump and trust. Trump's version of events, surreptitiously secretly recorded his client, which is a bizarre thing and who wouldn't council it, and I've never done it. And I would be very angry if someone did it to me, but he did it that tape seems to suggest that there was some conversation between among people representing Trump and the people who are responsible for the payment to MS McDougal at the National Enquirer. I don't think there's enough information yet in the tape cuts off and some of it is unclear, but regardless I think there's now the beginnings of some evidence to suggest that the Trump campaign itself felt the need for purposes of enhancing his election prospects to coordinate reimburse or pay the one hundred fifty thousand dollars McDougal. So that's an example of what a campaign finance. Violation allegation would look like. Now on the other hand, if it was not the Trump folks who made the payment and it really was made by the folks at the National Enquirer by David pecker on behalf of Donald Trump because it was going to help him in the campaign and is reasonable reason to think that because it came in the weeks before the election will the NATs, an illegal campaign contribution that both exceeds the limit and also wasn't disclosed. So kind of either way you slice it, there's a possibility of a campaign violation depending on what the motivations were, depending what people's knowledge was, and if it is a campaign finance violation than presumably some office will think about whether or not they should prosecute whether or not make sense, and is in the interests of Justice. In that office at the moment appears to be the southern district of New York. Before we get to the interview, I just wanted to share some news on a couple of fronts. I, some of you may know I've been writing a book. It's really, really hard. It's very, very slowly. But this past Monday, I finally. Delivered a draft of the book to my editor have off. He seemed very happy and I am very happy, but I've been mostly keeping my head down basically just doing this podcast and reading that book. And I've been thinking as I mentioned some weeks ago about the possibility of running for the open seat of attorney general of the state of New York, and I mentioned that I was likely to do it. Politics is not my Cup of tea, but I went to finish writing the book in sleep on it. I think it's an.
