Brazen Looting Takes Place at NYC Clothing Store -- Are Progressive Policies to Blame?
"Stop. Let me share a personal story about coming to New York City a week or so ago. After I've got rid of COVID and finish through that and a couple of days after Christmas came to New York, a friend of mine was telling me a New York story. He was up by Union Square and witnessed 7 guys running out of a clothing store called Roth's rothman's men's clothing. On Union Square. Big men's clothing store here in New York City. And 7 guys, he counted them, running out of the store, bursting out of the store with their arms loaded with jeans and shirts and coats. They just ransacked the place, broad daylight, middle of the day, probably thousands and thousands of dollars worth of merchandise. And people just look at them. And they ran down the street and got away, presumably. Larry elder. My friend and colleague was talking to Pete hegseth. This past Thursday on Fox News. Because these crimes were seen all over America. Are directly and deliberately a result of progressive policies in cities like New York. Los Angeles, Chicago. Listen to the way Larry laid this out with Pete hegseth on Fox News. And you have laws out here in California like proposition 57 that have reclassified all sorts of groups of crimes as nonviolent and they include but are not limited to serial arson, nonviolent crime, assault on the police officer, nonviolent crime, aggravated assault, nonviolent crime, domestic felony battery, nonviolent crime, rape of an intoxicated victim, nonviolent crime, as a result, people are not being held for the time. They ought to be held and they're out in the streets when they are not be out in the streets. And as usual, the sage is right. He's absolutely right. But that's why people are ransacking stores and committing crimes and not being held accountable.

"Pillows to listeners of my podcast at helixsleep dot com slash bureau. Now let's return to our guest. Let's talk about the field. And the evidence response teams in the field How many evidence teams are there. What does selection and training look. It must have a feel for that across the bureau so one of the beautiful things about the evidence. Response team is the standardization of training. And that's the main goal of the program is to have this this force of people from all across the country every office all fifty. Six field offices has an evidence response team and the size of the evidence. Response team is dictated by the office and the kind of work it does so new york los angeles they have some of the largest teams that we have in the bureau of about forty individuals on each team In in those teams you have smaller eight-man sets and so We everybody on those little eight man. Teams has a role that they're trained and they're they're also trained do differ role so our thought process is. You should know how to do every role on that eight maintain whether it be photographer. Scatter evidence collection team later because sometimes people are going to change the scenes going to change. Who's available that goes going to change So the teams are all consistently trained in how to do everybody else's job and then they all get the same training at quantico at our training facility and then we can mix and match those teams as needed for the scene. So if you have a large scale event say Boston bombing or an airplane crash that we might be supporting the ntsb. We can take a forty man team and we can make him a two or three hundred man team just by bringing in additional surrounding evidence response teams from local field offices. Those teams from the responding offices will be made up of agents professional support from all types of disciplines inside their office. And i think that's what makes the teams stronger because the diversity of the individuals for inside the office so you've got people from violent crime white collar crime. You might have professional support that the does certain things that would lend themselves whether it be electron or Computer specialties. That might lend themselves well to being on evidence. Response team and the makeup of the teams is approximately about fifty percent. Fbi agents and fifty percent professional support. So it's a good blend that we find Across the bureau and right now we have about thirteen hundred people trained to do evidence response team work in and out of and deploy across the country. So that's a good number for us to have an and when you think about it. The thirteen hundred actually gives us a workforce that no police department really can help support. Because when you have something like the dallas police shooting they have large scale scene. It's gonna take anywhere from nine to eleven days on average for a mass shooting. It's hard for police. Department to cease daily operations and go do crime. Scene work for nine to eleven days and for us to be able to dump to three hundred people out to assist state and federal partners is part of the work that we do as far as bringing something to the table for state and local entities. So that's the thing that you'll first responders will be the local field office and then we can. Within an hour's we can bring in more additional support. We can have lab. James fly out the typically. We get flying support to travel to these scenes through our critical incident response group. They made tain all the airplanes. And so that's who takes us to all these locations and relatively quick fashion so when we have like a pulse nightclub shooting we can deploy very quickly the title. Fbi agent comes with reward preceded by immense responsibility agents vital in large scale investigations like the pulse nightclub. Shooting in two thousand fifteen forty nine people were murdered inside the orlando nightclub. It became a massive multi agency investigation including agents from jacksonville. I think most people on my team would say it was one of the worst we've ever encountered just because of the number of people who were killed. I think one of the things. Our listeners might be surprised to learn because of the steady diet of hollywood tv and motion picture drama that two picks crime scene investigators as these kind of full-time.

Retailers are turning to virtual storefronts this holiday season
"Shopping is big part of the holiday season. We go downtown or to a packed mall browse the store windows smell. The chestnuts roasting in the street. The pandemic has obviously changed all this but some retailers like gap ted baker and ralph. Lauren are trying to deliver that experience to our computers. I just clicked her. A virtual tour of ralph lauren's beverly hills store at the entrance. There's an archway decorated with christmas garlands and a marble fountain with mannequins posed in front of it. I think that that this dude is supposed to be riding a horse or something and there is a saddle next to him. Yeah a saddle. Part of the ranting. I guess. I don't think that it's for sale. And i tried to click on it. But now i ended up in another somewhere else. I don't know where i am. Now let me go back. Oh god okay. I talked about the virtual storefront experience with joe toro a professor at the university of pennsylvania and author of the book. The aisles have is the thing that's weird about it. One is that there's no one else in the store and two. There's no sales people so it's essentially a store after the rest of the world has been destroyed. And when you click on a particular marker next to the goods you see the price of the goods you can actually purchase it. We've seen the companies that make these virtual stores sell themselves during the pandemic as a way to get people in store despite the lockdown Do you think brands are hoping this will drive sales or is it. Just more of a pr move well everything. They're hoping we'll drive sales. I think what it is is an attempt to use the architecture that they have. The stores are brands. The physical architecture says something about store the idea that when you walk into a ralph lauren. Store it's not macy's that's the kind of idea they want to depict find interesting. Is that retailers. Were launching these virtual storefronts even before the pandemic which to me indicates that they think people will want to use them during normal times. Why do you think. Shoppers would go to a virtual store if they could go to one in person because it's easier sometimes because people have gotten used to the idea. The habit of shopping online and because those stores wanna differentiate themselves from amazon. If you can actually walk into ralph lauren. In a way that makes you feel good about what you're doing instead of going on to amazon and just going through a regular kind of standard catalog. Maybe would find more interesting. I mean occurs to me that stores are not always accessible or comfortable for everyone. And don't forget that. If you live in new york los angeles there are stores for just about every brand and so what they're doing is reporting the expensive architecture and branding that they created for these flagship stores in big cities and allowing people all over the country and even the world to go into them. So you've written about. How retailers are remarkably good at tracking us in store figuring out our preferences what we might wanna by using cameras and smartphone apps and gps's how might the data collection process look different in virtual storefront. Well the great thing about that. From the standpoint of the retailer is they can actually follow. Your is particularly if using goggles right. They know what you're looking at. They know where you've gone it has the counterpart of walking through the store. So they can actually see. Have you passed the shoe aisle while maybe if we give you a virtual coupon you'll go back to the shoe while they're that level of lineal activity that they can follow and they can see what you're interested in which is partly possible to do of course on a regular website but in terms of the movement across the store and maybe the the trying on of things and putting them back and all that eventually you'll be able to see in this kind of world That's gonna be useful for Stores to know also where you start when you go to a website you pretty well have search for a particular good and then you put it down or you purchase it when you walk into a store. You may wonder you know. If it's a virtual store the same thing and companies will be really interested in how people wander. That's one of the major issues of creating stores organizing stores figuring out how to get people to buy things. Where do you place your goods based upon how people wonder do you think there's any additional data a retailer might be able to get if you're shopping in its virtual store rather than its in-person store will say say what you look for is one thing if the voice becomes part of it for example if they include a virtual sales people who talk to you the way customers talked to the virtual sales people could become another important piece of data what companies infer from the way you speak and even the literal voice tones that you speak with can tell them things about you.

Economic Pain From Pandemic Is Much Worse Than Expected, Poll Finds
"A new survey measures the financial pain as the pandemic goes on. Almost half of American households have suffered serious financial losses were told in a new poll, by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Harvard t H. Chan School of Public Health in the country's four largest cities. The situation is even worse especially for Latinos and black-americans fifty to eighty percent of those. Households report serious financial problems. They can't pay their rent or their mortgage or their credit cards, and they've depleted what savings they have had. NPR's Yuki. Noguchi reports on the findings. The pandemic is creating serious financial problems, job loss depleted savings or possible eviction. That's despite hundreds of billions in government stimulus and other support. The survey shows economic stress running higher in the. country's four largest cities, New York, Los Angeles Chicago and Houston. Latino and black families were substantially more likely to face serious economic distress compared to white counterparts. Robert Blend in is a professor of health policy and political analysis at Harvard and Co author of the survey. He says the results show the personal financial challenges run deeper and broader than previously understood. I would've. Expected that all the aid that was coming from various sources would have narrowed not eliminated the differences by race ethnicity the survey conducted. This summer also found distress among households making less than a hundred thousand dollars a year. It's a just a lack of funds creating knock on effects trouble paying for food or medical care, which in turn lead to serious health consequences. The surveys implications could mean everything from a bigger drag on the economy to the nation's mental health outlook and blending says, the prognosis is grim at the time of the survey. The federal government was offering six hundred dollars a week in additional benefits for the unemployed. That was not renewed after July it's going to get worse because there is nothing for the people we serve eight who earn thousand. Dollars a year already communities are not working fulltime to fall back

"Rocks not going the way that the violence for the most part is behind us now of course going to go through this weekend which is my big concern right correct yes and especially if there's there's always potential anymore for something to pop up and then there's the gaskets thrown right back on the fire but god willing at least here things will continue to settle down and you know through all of this I've been reading and I know you have as well about you know all this it supposedly and I'm not talking about president trump's order I'm talking about insurrection from ma various groups whether on the far right far left the white supremacist or trying to set up antifa antifa is trying to set up those guys these guys are trying to set up those guys and I'm wondering how in the world it works by me with social media obviously it's kind of easy to do it either isn't there seemingly three oh groups out there right there is the sincere peaceful people that are out there at everybody recognizes that then there's the you know the folks that are a little bit more in the violent side of that and then there's kind of the anarchist opportunists that are looting the stuff out there but right there's different ebbs and flows in every police officer I talked to's there's you know a lot of this is coordinated right with some of these groups on who they're going to your attack and what business are gonna destroy in all that so it's complicated I know you and I wanted to hopefully help explain who these different groups are and how they communicate with one another and all that well we went to a former FBI agent Brad Garrett from ABC news Brad welcome to the program today to celebrate we figured you know we want to figure stuff like this album would go to the FBI so did you understand why don't you understand though what we're talking about here however these give them people go about communicating this stuff in deflecting blame I mean with the I think what Twitter it's easy that's set up you know bogus handle and operate under that is that what we're doing well maybe only to a certain extent if they're actually going to talk about committing criminal acts whether it's limiting or whatever it might be they're either going to do it in person over there gonna do it through encrypted apps which are much more difficult for law enforcement to intercept thank you know obviously they have to know about them to begin with because of the so many of them going on at the same time but you know when you look at these groups in in you know not to say that some of them don't have a version of a hierarchy you know in in Hey it's it's really hard to picture though that there's any release super organized fashion the any of this now could there be in DC could there be a Cincinnati in inside sales of the group the answer is probably yes to a certain extent but you know to add another category you mentioned three it's just out not criminals I mean who just are you seeing sort of the the the product of demonstrations to go live stores because they note the police are not going to be able to deal with it because they're all dealing with protests I mean we had a number of stores there's a there's a CVS two hundred feet from my front door and I walked out two days ago there were like three hundred scripts all over the ground you know they looted at CVS hi I use as an example of you know you think those people care one way or the other about politics or police reports of course not they're just they they're there to steal like the people who are breaking into high end stores and in New York Los Angeles angels eccentricity it it's it's even though the number of I suppose versions of groups is pretty endless here and that obviously is the frustration to law enforcement Brad explained everyone who or what antifa is because it it's I think it's very confusing because they they claim to be opponents of the bad guys right anti fascists who who isn't against fascism right so it's kind of complicated although again cops I talk to say there's there a lot of the problem in this is because they're about kind of making trouble and and start up a lot of stuff and very very coordination explain who that group is okay so he had to actually give you a definition it just like you mentioned is is sort somewhat difficult but they believe that anything that sort of adds to government control excessive use of the government all of those things are sort of fair game and I think that's why you'll see them get in certain environments aggressive with law enforcement because they I think surely someone picture alon fortunate as the enemy that quote unquote it fall into the for the fascist definition and so you will see that you know throw bottles get into all sorts of skirmishes you would want for someone they will argue that there's you know there's a good reason to do that it's hard to picture that there is a good reason but that's I'm just telling you from their perspective there is there is there is that going on but I will tell you you know is there any like national affiliation it's really hard to say there's no you know there's no like the one person in charge right is it isn't more regional is it more in my in my view local I mean did do they said people from other states to come let's say to where I am in DC I think the answer is yes into you you do have that but you know naturally driven partly by word of mouth either chewing crypto that or some other way they they're able to communicate that's not so blatant like Twitter or Facebook where you know there's a lot of people will be on law enforcement if those two companies that do a lot of monitoring and are looking for red flags and fake accounts because the you know the other components of this is how much the Russians are trying to in the flames to get all of these groups you stop we go at each other because you know they want to destabilize us and you know what a perfect sort of venue to do that in but during protests and riots smell is there an organized situated out in TV as you said is not there it's not really an organization that's just kind of a name for people like that now on the other side is it the KKK the white supremacists who who on the other side is doing that type of thing well I mean you you certainly could have white supremacists who also there's a whole faction of them who A. to police and would like to go after the police because the police are going after them obviously there's a whole group of people called sovereign citizens who believe basically anything but the local government is all illegitimate and so you know and they've committed a number of of murders over recent years of law enforcement and other people so you can see how this sort of takes on it's like in a barrel with like eighteen pieces of paper hitting you of different groups that could have some hand in in what's going on from as you mentioned the everyday citizen right to protest goes down please of the curfew timing goes home to all of these other potential layers of people who have their own agendas from just out and out criminals who have their own sort of philosophical agendas rather anti fascist whether they were sovereign citizens whether they're white supremacists just sort of goes on and on in it got to go back to the antifa folks in as you said that the reason crypto apps in there which makes them harder to track Ameen and get in on the FBI and is is a very powerful organization what I mean it it's just crazy to believe that we can't I mean why can't we hacked the apps why can't we get around use the power of the government to to break through some of that you know firewall that stop in and find out how these folks are communicating what makes it so tough well II I mean it's it's not totally impossible I mean there are ways to get a court order some judges but you you know you then have to get judicial authority to go to what's a what's app that's one of them to to help help decrypt the problem is even the way some of those are set up it's difficult to to decrypt it in a quick fashion what people are saying I mean it's it's really a tough road and I will tell you the more traditional terrorists whether they're domestic or international have gone to these encrypted apps because they no longer force that are going to have much a much bigger problem in intercepting their communications I'm very one thing I've been an advocate for is look everything is on tape two days these days right whether it's a police body cameras a surveillance camera outside of a multitude of buildings everyone has cellphones and I'm saying look let's find the folks that are that are you know shooting at cops the folks are beaten down people folks are you know throwing bricks through stores and stealing stuff in identify them and you know fill the letter Lolol item it mean what kind of things are is is that realistic or does it make it hard because people have mass song what's the level of of the facial recognition software that's out there what is that an option for the FBI well it it certainly is an option a you know a lot of things environmentally of fact that whiting position of the camera extra you know quick example in my P. G. is apparently tracking down a number of bad guys that looted some stores the end is primarily based on witnesses who saw it from their apartments high above down the street and the cameras actually captured the license plates of the people that were dropped off to go live and and you know and I think they're always staying in other states so my sense is based on who I've talked to is that they're actually running down those people as we speak so there yes there are ways to do that but think about it should be like New York Los Angeles even here in Washington DC the police are so overwhelmed in dealing with the sort of the everyday all hands on deck to deal with protests slash riots and then you know working with the military and working with other police department six after that seems a lot like looting and stealing it would become somewhat secondary just because there are people that work on NYPD maybe a little bit different because they got almost forty thousand cops but but it's it's it's really a tough thing and as I mentioned earlier it seems though that and they know that they can take probably as long as they want I mean outside the CVS when I walk down there Monday morning I mean all the scripts that they had taken out of the pharmacy were ripped open and the pill bottles are open numbers they took their time outside this door because he raps well that's a pretty big comfort level in my view he cannot so I wouldn't be on my list of things to do if I were a thief which is a wait and look at what you're stealing but I use that as an example of you know they they they probably at least in the short run are going to get by with what they're doing all right with that Brad Garrett will let you go man thanks so much always a pleasure okay guys take care.

Can Christopher Nolan's 'Tenet' Reopen Theaters?
"I'm talking about tenant. The sci-fi Crime Saga directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Robert Pattinson. That is expected to arrive as of this recording in theaters across the country on July seventeenth or is it ten. It has been touted as the movie that will reopen Hollywood that can salvage what has been tremendously difficult period for theatrical Exhibitors Theater. Workers Actors Filmmakers Craftspeople People Studio Employees Journalists essentially every single person who works in or is connected to the film industry television streaming into perpetuity. But movies still need theaters and so there is an extraordinary burden on. This is one of the signature communal events in American life. Gathering in the dark to be excited terrified thrilled. Everything that Chris owns movies do at their very best and yet Amanda. It seems completely impossible. That movie theaters will open two months from today. I've spoken to people in and around the industry over the past week to get a feel for this moment and everyone seems very confused. How are you feeling about the burden that is placed on tenant right now? I do not think that anyone movie can save the movie industry or that. It is fair to expect anyone movie to save industry or ruin the movie industry or reopen theaters. Or give us all our jobs back or that is put on tenant that said. I definitely don't think it's opening a too I. Just what are we doing? What are we doing? I completely agree. This just seems like one of the most obvious and difficult conversations in this into throughout much of cove nineteen and obviously this is very low on the list of important concerns regarding all the ramifications but for the purposes of this podcast. It's a huge deal because everything has really grind ground to a halt with the exception of trolls world tour and a handful of netflix releases. And Scoop He. The the movie industry is just not moving forward. There's no production happening right now. And with the exception of a handful of drive in movie theaters seem to be doing pretty nice business right now movies are at a standstill and you know. We got a report over the weekend from deadline about the stakes involved here with potentially making at the re entry film and the report stated that Warner Brothers needs eighty percent of the world's theaters to be opening to make tenants successful. I suppose that could also be true for just eighty percent of the theaters in the United States. Open to to make the film successful. This is a film with the two hundred million dollar budget and a lot of expectation even before there was a global pandemic and it certainly just doesn't feel like were close to being able to have experiences like going to movie theaters. I agree with that to me. It feels a little bit like a game of you know. I don't want to say chicken because I do think everybody's taking their responsibilities as seriously as they can. There's obviously like a lot of information that no one has but it really seems like on the one. Hand Warner Brothers is waiting for the local and state and regulations to be like okay. No you're movie. Theaters will not be open. That it won't be possible and I think the movie theaters that those local state regulation bodies etc. Like frankly have better things to do on or not worried about when movie theaters are going to be off and it's not the priority so it does just seem like a game of waiting for someone to blink. Finally because we're getting closer and closer to July seventeenth and it just doesn't seem like this systems are in place for this to be possible especially at the scale. That Warner Brothers has indicated that it needs in order to make ten successful. I thought a really interesting thing in that deadline piece that you mentioned was that it said that eighty percent of cedars need to be open including New York Los Angeles and San Francisco which are three of them major movie markets in the United States and three very large cities that have taken different approaches to how to manage this but are not immediately throwing open the doors to every single business establishment. So just from a practical sense. It seems like we're running out of time. I agree I as residents of California. I think it's safe to say that you know I'm grateful for how the the the leadership and the state has handled the pandemic but also they have been operating with an overwhelming sense of caution in all these issues and that has been met with some frustration by business owners by people who just want to go to the beach. But you know it. We're talking about two months. It's not a long period of time and the cases are still obviously piling up in this country. And so you're right that just from a very practical perspective. It seems unlikely at best that the theaters are going to open. And we'll get into this as we get deeper into. This conversation about the expectations are on this film and the expectations around the industry in general but the domino effect on this is is just extraordinary for what we talk about on this show every week and you and I can probably come up with top ten list until the cows come home and have a lot of fun talking about old movies and I cooked up to more ideas for stuff. I talked about last night and I think that'll be great to do. But the lifeblood of a contemporary film podcast Is Contemporary. Films is new films and the conversation that stokes new films and antennas is one of those movies. That if you if you if you dig this show on dig what we're doing and care about movies the way that we do it is. It is one of the key movies. It's one of the five key movies. It was going to come out this year. It is the kind of movie even though I personally am not always the biggest Christopher Nolan Fan. They're fun to talk about. You know they're they`re. They're really a gift and ten is an original film and it's trying to do something that even the movies that we have to drag with us through every conversation or the star wars movies or animated kids films as far as big tent pole stories. Go this is really the biggest and most unique in its way and so there's really there are no good answers. I mean you mentioned New York Los Angeles and San Francisco through the various reporting. We've seen that. There is there are already some guidelines for what a theater could do to open. Texas several weeks ago had the opportunity to reopen. Its movie theaters in some theaters that open. But that didn't mean that. Any of the notable studios. We're going to release their films into those studios. So that's the first thing the studios have to agree to start putting movies out. We saw last week that the forever purge the fifth purge film from Blunt House was taken from off the date of July tenth and is now indefinitely coming out. And that's just GONNA keep happening. You know the movies that are around attendant are also starting to move or starting to see August films move or starting this even September movies. Move into twenty twenty one and so because of that and because of these these guidelines that we're GonNa talk about. I seems unlikely. But I mean you. You cited some checkered seating here in the way that we would live in a movie theater if this were to happen what what has to happen here for this to work. We don't know what has to happen and this is what's interesting. Is that what? I'm in. A site? Checkered seating is a like a phrase that has come up in a lot of the industry reporting as as the trades are speaking with theater owners and trying to put together a Some guidelines but everyone is still figuring this out. Nothing has been officially announced the general understanding of what checkered seating is. And I'm quoting the Hollywood reporter here. Is that cedars could end up leaving every other row empty as well as keeping empty seats between patriots in alternating rows and and I think there would be a reserve seating element there. There is a reserve seating element to a lot of theaters already but enforcing where people can buy tickets and where people can sit and this seems to kind of be the consensus at this moment. In terms of what checkered seating is then there would be like increased sanitary measures throughout the theaters. Though you know. I think that'll be senior by Cedar Standard as to what they're doing and how they're enforcing it because there aren't a major guidelines coming up from above at this point so that to me is such a big question is like if even if the theaters are allowed to open. This is like an extreme amount of legwork. You know this is just a completely new involved. Expensive system that they have to put into place in order to allow a lot fewer theater people into their theaters and that takes time and resources Before you even get into questions of like quote consumer confidence or other issues. It's the same issue that is facing many restaurants around the country. It's the same issue that's facing. Many stores many businesses in terms of when they open. How will they manage the intake? And how will they manage the personal interaction that is necessary when operating a business? I think there's there's anxiety about running your credit card to recruit a card reader right now and concern about being able to sanitize your hands and wash your hands and Where mask and you know. I think there's also obviously an additional layer of liability concern given that if these movie theaters do open in July tenant does play and people go and there's an awareness of the film if someone if one person walks out of a movie theater and contracts the virus from another person who has gone to a movie theater. What does that mean for the movie theater? What does that mean for the filmmakers? What does that mean for the studio? What what level of responsibility and financial and legal liability to they have. I don't know. This is uncharted territory There is a this is a free country to some extent and given that. I think it's probably arguable about whether or not Businesses should should accept blame and responsibility for someone becoming sick in an environment like

Why 'The Irishman' May Not Be Coming to a Theater Near You
"I'm kim masters and this is the hollywood breakdown joining me as melanie of the hollywood reporter and matt net flicks is going for the gold you know they. They got very very close to a best picture. They certainly got the nomination. They didn't get the win last year with roma now. They have a crazy number of movies that they are pushing into the award season. <hes> i think probably the highest profile is martin scorsese's. The irishman an a an outlandishly expensive film about one hundred and sixty million paramount wouldn't do it. <hes> but netflix would now what you're seeing. Is this this drama. Of what kind of release will this movie get and it's almost like the film world is saying hey. This is martin scorsese movie. It has to be in theaters. I accept that's not really an option well. It isn't a small sense. I mean this is becoming an annual debate with netflix where everyone takes note of these high high profile projects that they pick up and then the question becomes well. Wait a second. This is the kind of movie that a lot of people wanna see in theater and the filmmakers certainly wants to see it in a theater later. So what are you gonna do about it and netflix is in this really really tough position. They would love to show these movies for a small amount of time in theaters nationwide worldwide worldwide but they go out and do the road show they try to convince these big theater chains to play the movie and again this year that theater chain said oh. It's going to be out on netflix in a couple of weeks. No we're not gonna play this movie so what you have here is. This is going to release about ten films this fall in theaters but they're forced. I only show them in small independent theater chains new york los angeles some other big cities and for about three four weeks in some cases before they go on the service. We know that steven spielberg for example had some feelings that he sort of expressed last year with roma saying if it's not on screens it's it's a t._v. It's a it's a t._v. Movie it's not a movie movie and then there was a lot of blowback about that and people thought it was exclusionary of young talent. That doesn't necessarily have the power command that kind of release. There was a lot of debate but i imagine if i were steven spielberg i'd be sort of smiling and nodding to myself because i think unless netflix can breakthrough and snag an actual best picture award or some serious batch of major awards at the oscars. I dunno if i'm in a list director to who thinks that i have the power you know to demand a wide release. I'm going to be looking at my options and i'm gonna wanna go to someone who has the ability to say yes. We'll let this play really wide in theaters and because that is the you know it's the holy grail for filmmakers. One thing is clear here and that's that netflix is not going away. I mean they they are coming back. This season even stronger than last season where roma while a great film was a niche play. It was a tough sit as they say you had to really. They get into the the art films of all black and white. It was a period piece. It was different language all of those things yes made it a huge challenge and that's very different from a martin scorsese says he film which has gangsters violence and stylish scenes and everything like that you know they've also got this noah baumbach film with scarlett johansson and adam driver ever to stars of marvel and star wars franchises that are going to be in a film that i think a lot of people are going to want to see and eric story is the name of the film just to fill that in and it's supposed to be getting way out of venice which has just started exactly and i think that the more every season netflix learns a little bit about how to release these films and even if they can't get at that big wide scale theatrical release. They're doing everything else possible to court these filmmakers. They have a sixty person award staff. The people working at netflix dedicated to winning awards. They have no expense spared campaigns. They were they host events. They run <unk> advertising. They pull out all the stops and these are the kinds of things that filmmakers take notice because they say what are you doing for my movie. Well and the other advantage that netflix has of courses at the studios are getting out of this kind of business so we'll see what happens. That's matt bellamy editorial director of the hollywood

"But to enforce the law, he said that to NPR's John Burnett, who sat down with Morgan today, and who is sitting here in the studio with me hit John Lewis. What do we know about this operation? That is about to launch across the country starting Sunday. We know the Justice department has fast track the asylum cases of thousands of recently arrived immigrants, mostly from Central America, and they're in ten major US cities. They include New York, Los Angeles, Houston Chicago, and San Francisco. And we believe that these are the areas were ice agents will be targeting families in the coming days. I spoke with. Acting ice director, Mark Morgan, this afternoon at a conference stable in his office at a ice headquarters got a commanding view, the Washington Monument, the Potomac, and he was saying he wishes agents didn't have to go out and knock on doors to arrest immigrants because it's labor intensive and it's dangerous for the agents but he doesn't expect them to turn themselves in the history has shown they do not. So what, what are options they've had due process? They they've had access to turns that had access to interpreters majority of them don't even show up. We have no choice. It's about the rule of law. If those who have gone through the process and received final orders if we don't enforce that, then that whole process is meaningless, John for those of us who have not covered ice rates for many years as you have what is different about how these appear to be taken for them. It's dramatic. Louise up to now ice ages. Prioritize unauthorized immigrants single adults who have criminal charges, whether they're serious, or minor. Now they're gonna. Roundup recent arrivals, and today, the great majority of them are mothers and fathers with their children who've committed no crime of illegal entry, but I can't help but think of the blistering criticism that the administration came under last year when it was targeting families, and separating parents children at the border. Are they taking steps to avoid the appearance, that they're mistreating parents and children? Again, that's really the question at some people administration are asking now I mean rounding families can be messy what if show up at the apartment and only the mom, is there, her daughter is at the data or church camp or off with her cousins. And so these these beefy armed agents come back and arrest the daughter separately. Here's Morgan again. My duty is not to look at the political optics or the will the American people, that's for the politicians with the American people should want us to do as law enforcement officials is to enforce the rule of law and maintain the integrity of that system. If you here in violation. Federal immigration law. If you've had due process and you have a final order. What are we supposed to do? I have another question. When time hoping you put to mortgage John, which is if this round of families goes ahead where will they all stay where will they be detained because I thought one of the problems was there. They were out of detention beds. I asked the director that Mary Louise, and he basically said, this is our job, and we'll find places for them. The truth is, they're not likely to get more congressional money for detention beds. These families are likely to be deported quickly in terms of long-term detention. I asked him about ice being in hot water with the inspector general of homeland security, a recent report chided ice for systemic problems at its contract immigrant detention centers. It described grievous violations such as overly restrictive segregation inadequate medical care, food, safety issues dilapidated in moldy housing units. Morgan insists ISIS addressing those deficiencies and doing better. I pressed him on it. I just dismissed that outright. That doesn't care. That's absolutely false within abuses continue year after year year. So I take exception with your use of the word abuse. It's not abuse. No system is perfect. But I think what you do you encourage oversight. And then you do your best to continue. Get better. Mark Morgan, the acting director of ice talking there with our John Burnett.

Police departments reminding officers of their social media policies after the publication of thousands of -fensive posts by cops on website earlier this month, as NPR's Martin Kosti reports the scandal is testing the boundaries between free speech and police credibility.

There are some that or catcher that we quite don't understand why they own their, you know that some of them were.

Yes, he says some of the posts in the database are gallows humor. Cops blowing off steam but others cross align posts are so racist there, so bigoted. That is difficult to imagine how a person who would think it was okay to say even with their friends should be having a badge in a gun. To take away like liberty in the name of the state.

A woman who has spent her life being mocked and teased for an unusual name has now used that experience to earn a PHD marijuana Pepsi Van Dyke has become Dr marijuana Pepsi Van Dyke, the title of her dissertation black names in white classrooms, teacher behaviors and student perceptions. Dr Van Dyke sees her name as something to be proud of and not just an obstacle to overcome marijuana. Pepsi Van Dyke, welcome to all things considered. Thank you for having me, now, you have two sisters named Kimberly and Robyn. So how did you end up with this more usual? That is a great question one. I've asked several times. My mom just shared that she felt a kinship with me. And she felt like this name would take me around the world. Have you always been proud of your name, or was that a journey for you journey when I was very young up till about nine years of age? Marijuana was just a beautiful name. I received accolades holiday, your name is so pretty. But then I moved to a new city and all of a sudden I was made very aware that marijuana Pepsi was actually very unusual. And so I just had to accept it and go forth with it. I understand teachers insisted on calling you Mary, even though that wasn't the nickname you preferred, I wouldn't say that they insisted I have had some amazing teachers educators over the years. And I think they wanted to make me feel more comfortable. They could see what was happening and see what the other children were doing. And they were trying to smooth the way and make things easier for me. Do you think it shaped your character dealing with that kind of pushback? Oh, most definitely growing up with a name like that. I'm an introvert, and I don't like a great deal of attention. I was lonely isolated. I just wanted to be anywhere, but somewhere meeting someone new and hearing all the questions when you were a student did both black and white teachers react strongly to your name, or was, it was, it only white teachers at the time it was only white teachers and I believe it's because in the black community, we're used to having names that are more cultural put it this way. One of my research. Participants said it why people like things standardize and that includes names, we are all human. We all here, things that make us look twice. But it's what you do after you wreck. Recognizable that you have this feeling about it. And it's what you act on from that point on. That's the most important part. So what's your advice, to a teacher, who might be listening for when they have a kid in their class, who has an unusual name, and that teacher might have an implicit negative reaction? Well, my advice is simply acceptance, I don't want to come off a saying that teachers are doing something wrong. I understand the name marijuana is unusual. It's not everyday you give it and then you have a student in class called marijuana Pepsi or maybe drew Sheikha. And if you're curious about it feel free to ask perhaps, not in front of the other twenty five students don't ask who name them in a condescending manner, and say, I never would have named my child that what kind of parents, do you have. It's those types of things. Dr Van Dyke, thank you for speaking with us today, and congratulations. On your PHD. I really appreciate it. Thank you so much.

Annual bonfire ritual that started in the nineteen eighties has steadily built a following that currently draws thousands of people to a middle of the nowhere desert location in Nevada. Every year burning man, calls itself, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community art, self expression and self reliance. It also means a lot of people with a lot of nuts, a legal drugs in a single space and now new federal regulations could put a wrench in the tradition. The bureau of land. Management says attendance can't go above eighty thousand people this year as the events seeks to expand and the fed says attendees could face drug screenings before entering the festival on that news burning men released a statement saying the event is still on this year and say they hope Awad of the new regulations won't apply until twenty twenty or maybe ever. Brian Doherty is the senior editor at reason magazine and author of the book called this is burning man. Hey, brian. How are you? Thanks for coming on a so a run us through, if you could what these new regulations look like and how they could affect the festival. Yeah. You mentioned the event has a reputation or wild partying doesn't seem like it's actually a problem that should demand what the government wants to essentially mass searches of American citizens without a warrant, and without probable cause problem. All right. So if this does happen, how could this affect the festival if it's allowed if if this does happen? People will have a great time the art, but the setting the people, you know, the, the events going to be great. But what America think can't tolerate is the government sort of declaring that just because gathering has a reputation that we find questionable. We're just going to put the fourth amendment into all right? So these regulations that are being talked about, which is capping attendance, and the searching for drugs, and so on, and so forth when will we know for sure if that's going to happen this year or in any year in the future. The capping attendance. They've been capping attendance for very long time that that's sort of issue again this year. The notion that maybe you'll radar. And let's figure out how that would work and the be Olympic. No. Where we're not gonna be raising on this thing. Got them communication about this writing about this, and the best I can say is they do not want to say absolutely we're not going to be doing it this year, but not saying they will be doing this year and they, they seem to be trying to indicate that they probably won't without stating. They won't. You're just talking about this. Now, obviously one of the big arguments against these drug screenings is that they could count as unreasonable search and seizure organizers of the event of claimed that it would raise fourth amendment concerns. Why is that? I mean, this is on government land, right? That you should not be able to search an American today without a warrant or probable cause on its face. It absolutely unconstitutional. You can't. People unfortunately in practice. They've created a lot of little fourth amendment free spaces like the TSA, right? Getting on an airplane security reasons. Dan, I am a hundred percent confident. To do this. Does you will be considered by a court. Let me ask you this. I mean are people a little bit unnecessarily up in arms about this? I mean look, if you go to a concert, as you've mentioned before, right? You know, there's bag checks before you enter stadiums or venues and things like that. When it comes onto how reasonable burden is it? It's one thing you as a human being with your pockets and maybe your backpack or going into a stadium or something that you drove twenty minutes to do. Right. We're not talking about a truck trailer filled with everything you need to live for week necessarily going to you're gonna have tons of bags. Absolutely qualitatively different padding, a human being thirty minutes to walk into a football game and someone who was packed up their entire life for a week spent five hundred dollars driven for twenty four hours, is absolutely more significant and it should have legal significance than someone who's fanny pack cocaine walking into a football game.

You'll also earn two percent cashback at grocery stores and one percent on all other purchases. Now when you go out you cash in what's in your wallet? Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain, Steph, Lauryn balk here. Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night keeps your loyal mailman for making their daily rounds in their powder. Blue shirt, grey shorts and occasionally awesome safari hat. But how exactly did your trustee mail carrier get signed the specific route, and how long are they stuck with it? The US postal service was established by the constitution. And the first postmaster general was named by George Washington in seventeen eighty nine. The new country was served by seventy five post offices, delivering to four million people. According to sue Brennan at the United States postal service your mail carriers. Current route is one of more than seventy four thousand world postal routes and nearly one hundred forty five thousand city routes across the nation, the longest single root in America is magnum Oklahoma where a well traveled world carrier drives a hundred and eighty three miles. That's two hundred ninety four kilometers every day to serve two hundred and forty eight customers the shortest route is an Athens, Georgia where a city. Carrier walks nine hundred fifty feet that's two hundred eighty nine meters to make two hundred and Eighty-one deliveries. We spoke with Brian Renfro. He's a second-generation letter carrier from Hattiesburg Mississippi currently serving as the executive vice president of the national association of letter carriers, a labor union, representing America's two hundred thousand city postal workers Renfro explained to us the process by which an individual postal route is designed and assigned for starters, Redford says rural carriers and city carriers have different systems for determining the size of a route a rural carriers route is much more consistent, and they are paid for the amount of time. It takes them to complete the root for city carriers. The guiding principle of design is for carrier to complete the route in his close to eight hours as possible. As you can imagine. And it our route looks a lot different depending on your location in a dense urban center full of highrise apartments. It might take a postal worker. Eight hours to service a couple of blocks out in the suburbs. Another postal worker might walk and Dr miles delivering to single family homes. The size and dimensions of each route are calculated using a combination of computer based mapping software and old fashioned on the ground experience. Renfer said the postal service has a computer program that maps the exact location of every delivery point not just this houses here, but we're the mailbox is in this program uses a number of algorithms to try to generate the most efficient way to travel the route based on the time value that's assigned to each street the computers timing of the root is just a starting point though. After that, it's the postal manager's job to account for reality. Which includes all the variables that can impact the time. It takes to complete a route. There are seasonal fluctuations and mail volume. There's inclement weather there's road construction and new home construction and the very human differences between one carrier and the next Renfrewshire said some letter carriers are tall some are short. Some are young some are older. Some are fasters are slower. There are all sorts of variables that play into it. There's no set time to deliver mail at a particular house the post. Oh carrier has to spend a few hours sorting the mail into trays before heading out on their route the trays correspond to the order of the root. If the house is head of you on the route happened to be heavier on male than usual on any given day. The letters may get to your box later then on another day. Even if the weather is good, and there's no road construction or other delays keeping the roots as close to eight hours as possible requires regular adjustments postal managers will conduct six day route inspections to accurately time each part of the letter carriers day from the daily morning sorting to the on the street delivery to hanging up their bag at night. If carriers day is stretching closer to eight and a half hours. The postal manager will slice off a portion of that route and divvied up among nearby carriers with lighter loads that explains why you might see a new face on your route every couple of years. Otherwise, these ending roots at any given post office is done by seniority when route is vacated the carrier quits or retires. Or a new one is created all the carriers office. Get to bid on the roots the carrier with the most seniority wins. If you've had the same letter carrier for a long time that probably means you're part of a desirable route or those cookies, you gave them on national postal worker day, July first are really paying off. In addition to the long-term route adjustments that are made every few months or years. The postal service also makes short-term route fixes when letter carriers show up to work every morning. They look at the day's mail volume and make an estimate of how long it will take complete their assigned route. Maybe it's a snow day or a day after a government holiday. So the delivery volume is doubled. If they know it's going to take more than eight hours. They can either volunteer for overtime overtime sign ups are every three months or the supervisor can assign a portion of the route to other carriers for the day Renfro notes that though this may sound simple in practice. It can get complicated. Fast individual post offices in big cities, like New York, Los Angeles. Boston might have two hundred three hundred letter carriers to manage each with hundreds of changing customers to deliver to.

And a lot of the states have the inside of their constitution say, hey, the person who's a part of the elector here. They have to vote this way based on the will of the people of the state. In getting rid of this. What you're gonna do. And this is where rural America and urban metro America will clash back in the day you at Hamilton Jackson, and they fought it out. Right. Hamilton modern dude, right. The godfather of capitalism says hey, we we we're going to be about big cities. This is what we're going to be about big cities. We hear about all of this. Awesome stuff. We're going to we're going to outperform everybody. We're going to be bigger bolder. Just it's gonna be. It's gotta be amazing. Jackson says look I'm a little bit for that. But we gotta have representation everywhere because we just can't have everybody here deciding the way everybody else lives, right? And you're gonna lessen the states. And so we can't do that. So they fought they fought a lot about it. And they found out with a compromise. And it's it's it's worked out pretty well. If we were to get rid of it. New York, Los Angeles. Chicago. Dallas maybe Houston Miami Seattle. Pretty much. That's what you're going to get everybody else. Nobody cares. They're gonna stop going anywhere else. But big places, that's it. And you've already know where a few of those places are going to go, right? If you're a Republican, you have no chance in California or New York. Whatsoever. Probably not up in Seattle and Washington either. Right. San Francisco, there's no reason for you to be there you've no chance, so you take all your money, and the reason to stop at any of these places and go elsewhere. And the fear is the coastal communities. We'll control. So you'll have two or three big cities that for all intents and purposes will control all of politics across the board. And that's not always a good thing. I think right. I'm all for modern technology. I'm all for living in big cities. I got prompt. But I'm also fine living in a rural area. I got no problem with that. But there's a push to eliminate it. Now, some people say the push to eliminate it is because you know, you gore won the popular lost the electoral college, Trump lost the popular, but won the electoral college. There you go. So if we just get around this, boom. There you go you feel like you've one. Here's the other thing though. And people need to understand this is when you're changing the electorate across the board. It's so much easier to get people in mass the haves and the have nots. And the people that you go out there and say, I'm gonna give everybody free ice cream. No work free money. Everything just vote for me in mass comparatively everywhere else, you could literally change everything and have a one party country. It's.

"Back in the seventies. For the end of the week. Palm beach. Independent in thoughts and punk rock in life. It's the Benson show. We have national voting, and that means get rid of the electoral college. Yeah. Get rid of the electoral college, and I'll tell you why. Because they're buying their way into these rich people are buying into the electoral college because their parents are famous, and it's not a college. It's not what exactly is I'm a chats plan. You guys some of what this is and the kind of movement that's going on for a lot of people who just want to get rid of the electoral college, right? Trump won the votes, the electoral college votes, the votes that matter. You need to get to seventy five hundred thirty eight of these electors five hundred thirty eight to seventy get your presidency to seventy two hundred seventy gets you that right there. Two hundred seventy right. That's pretty cool. Right. So twenty-third amendment constitution Dixie Columbia's allocated three so they got three and the rest of it's all out of, you know, taken from each state. So he states worth something a little bit different. People. Well, we the positive about why don't we more popular? But the reality is you're not actually voting for president in a weird way, which you're voting for is the person who's gonna vote for president. And a lot of the states have the inside of their constitutions to. Hey, the person who's a part of the elector here. They have to vote this way based on the will of the people of the state. In getting rid of this. What you're gonna do. And this is where rural America and urban metro America will clash back in the day you at Hamilton and Jackson, and they fought it out. Right. Hamilton. Modern dude, right. The godfather of capitalism says hey, we we we're going to be about big cities. This is what we're going to be about that big cities. We about all of this. Awesome stuff. We're gonna we're going to outperform everybody. We're going to be bigger bolder. Just it's gonna be awesome. It's going to be amazing. Jackson says look I'm a little bit for that. But we gotta have representation everywhere. Because we just can't have everybody here deciding the way everybody else lives, right? And you're going to lessen the states. And so we can't do that. So they thought they didn't really they fought a lot about it. And they found up with a compromise. And it's it's it's worked out pretty well. If we were to get rid of it. New York, Los Angeles. Chicago. Dallas maybe Houston Miami Seattle. Pretty much. That's what you're going to get everybody else. Nobody cares. They're gonna stop going anywhere else. But big places, that's it. And. You've already know where a few of those places are going to go, right? If you're a Republican, you have no chance in California or New York. Whatsoever. Probably not up in Seattle in Washington either. Right. San Francisco, don't you see there's no reason for you to be there. Right. You've no chance. So you take all your money, and the reason stop at any of these places and go elsewhere. And the fear is the coastal communities. Will control. So you'll have two or three big cities that for all intensive purposes will control all of politics across the board. And that's not always a good thing. I think right. I'm all for modern technology for living in big cities. I got prompt. But I'm also fine living in a rural area. I got no problem with that. But there's a push to eliminate it. Now, some people say the push to eliminate it is because you know, you gore won the popular lost the electoral college, Trump lost the popular, but won the electoral college. There you go. So if we just get around this, boom. There you go you feel like you've one. Here's the other thing though. And people need to understand this is when you're changing the electorate across the board. It's so much easier to get people in mass the haves and the have nots. And the people that you go out there and say, I'm gonna give everybody free ice cream. No work free money. Everything just vote for me in mass comparatively everywhere else, you could literally change everything and have a one party country. It's not hard. It's not. And that's the fear. Of what you don't want something like that little bit of Bob rule. Do I think it's going to happen? I don't think it's going to happen. As soon as people think not in two thousand twenty but by two thousand twenty four what you're finding now is several states are getting together. And they're putting together a centrally a compact where they're gonna go out there. And constitutionally they have every right to do it. So the states are gonna come together. And they're going to say, look, we're r we're gonna take our votes and give it to the popular. Candidate whoever got the most votes. They get it right now. I think they have a one hundred and Eighty-one, right? It can't go into effect until you have two hundred seventy. But here's the question. I asked let's just say for the sake of argument, you get the this compact in Colorado just joined yesterday. Most of the states have been all democrat leaning, the sake for the sake of argument, though, that they get to two seventy and they want to put this compact in which means through over the popular voter Jeter is the rest of the country. They will get their votes the electoral votes, California. This is saying two thousand twenty so next year. Let's say Trump has the popular vote. Do you think California's not going to be pressured to get out of that not give him that? Of course. It's a tough thing. What fair representation the vote for the person in a rural areas you count as much as the person in. L A New York, Chicago, Miami, Dallas. And I my fear is if you think that they only come to the states when it's election time, which is true. Or if there's a natural disaster, which is true. They'll never come to these states probably ever because they literally won't care. They won't you got a place like L A. Right with eighteen thousand eighteen million people in the metro alone. Why would you go anywhere else? That's what matters the most. And that's the issue that you have with something like this. As for me. I like the way it is. If we if there's a happy medium, and we find it and constitutionally it stands the sniff test. Then there it is. But my fear like a lot of people's fear is it's a complete grab of let's get this. And it's easy to have this populism and will continue to bring more and more voters into that are going to be disadvantaged. Love our message, and we'll get to the point where we can have a one all election every single year knowing exactly what it's going to be over and over again, and we'll have one party rule, and that's not what our founding fathers wanted three two three five three eight twenty four twenty three. At Chad Benson show is your Twitter. You could tweet at us love hearing from every single one of you. This is. I even know what to say, Ted Koppel. Who is an interesting character to say, I think the least Ted Koppel here. And he was yesterday giving a talk and he's talking about journalism, and he really hammered down. And he was talking with a journalist who by the way was not happy in the video to see the way that Ted kind of talked about the fact that hey, you know, what New York Times Washington Post, you guys have issues I'm terribly concerned. The when you talk. Where.
