"Her hair was still red folks, they said. Our lives together sure was gonna be rowed across America. The Larry Elder show that's fine, Fine Dylan songs that one of the most famous right It's more Upstate heading, then the ones I remember as a kid like rolling stone that the times they're a changing and all that stuff. Yeah, long, long time ago. We'll put the audience to sleep. How much of this country's tangled up in blue too much. It's too I said, I'll take your calls in a second at a 971 sage. Ah, so Lauren Groom and suggest that as I said, have one liberal and one conservative, asked questions of candidates that be interesting and years ago, my friend Bruce Hershenson, you remember, he ran for the Senate against Barbara Boxer and almost one if not for the first Bush. They pulled out all the money when Bush thought he was losing California. He would've been a great senator. But he suggested something similar with the news. How about if you have regular news, and you had a conservative? And a liberal, Each talk aboutthe. Same news stories, huh? Would not be interesting. His point was, we all come with our biases and let the people decide by releasing both sides. What do you think of that idea in the debates in our regular news programs, then people can really see the difference between conservatives and leftist or even liberals. Our side almost always wins. When the people really know the facts, Unlike our young now have been a fed a diet of less leftism during their entire school careers. They don't even know what socialism and communism has done to the people weren't exists or has been tried. Do they really know what makes America so special? I'll talk about some or a lot of stuff on education. I want to say, um, but as a teacher, I know they don't The curtain is becoming more and more anti western and anti us. Many actually come that should come to hate the United States of America. How else can you explain the success of leftist like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren? The students never hear our side. So let me know you're taken 888971 sage and I said I'd get factor calls Jan. In Pennsylvania. Jan. You're on with Marc. Hello. I feel that instead of even having and moderator at the debate After the questions have been established by whatever committee it is. They should just have them digitally posted. On air so that they both candidates can see them and they know who eternity is. That way. There's no interference, such as there's been in every debate where Savannah Guthrie. Just when, after Donald Trump and debated him she would ask a question and she was giving the answer. She wanted to hear the same thing with Chris Wallace would not let Donald Trump interrupt Joe Biden. When he wanted to debate him, So I just don't think the moderation is that all there don't know what you're not saying Anything new. I mean, as I said even Pence should have objected to pages a premises. They weren't true. And new king. Or you may remember this. Newt Gingrich did a great job during the debates when he was running for president, where, he said, I don't accept your premise. That's part of the problem. They come up with these ideas that not everybody agrees with and you're supposed to answer it. How can answer what you don't even believe to be true? Even though you guys believe it's true supposed be moderators not get in the debate. Hi. Well, see, we go to next. Ah. Okay. We got time for another call. Let's go to Greg in Minneapolis, Greg You still living in Minneapolis? After everything? Yeah, Yeah. Hi. Okay, So we all know people get get their jobs through nepotism, you know, say Chris Wallace. Sorry. I like that. Let's say 31 minute Tonner. Biden got its corporate jobs through nepotism, the family name and all that. Joe Biden's been on office and if if we buy the The notion that Hunter Buyten's a great businessman what boards are busy on Nam? Why? What's he? What's he doing right now? I was going to say so bad. I'm not going to say because it's beneath. You know, I try to keep it. I thought the Dodgers, Sean said four boards. Um, I supposed to understand that I was thinking of something worse, but I don't want to say Alcohol control Commission. I don't know whatever wouldn't be suiting. You know, he's a talented guy be in high demand. Yeah, that. Well, because you run in the Dodgers for all you know, then, then I would just like that. Just for another precinct. Just just for moving. He'd be on the board. Yeah, I guess he could be on the board of the Dodgers. Right? Who knows you're doing OK in Minneapolis? That's what I get. Well, who knows? We'll see on November 4. I think I think he could win many apples is that it's not one of those ones. I'm super sure of what it's a chance. It's not impossible. Let me know what you think it will do. The polls Next are 888971 sage 8889717243. I do this well, when the numbers in front of me mark for every old hand call the Larry Elder Show now at 888971 Sage That's 89 7172 for three. Of everything..

"I'm voting for who I think stands for what I believe in you. Many have already voted anyway. Is there anything else left to say? I mean, other than Hunter bind Mr Trump, the goal will be to turn ish Mr Biden's son's reputation. Mr Biden's gold be not to take the bait. In the best of all worlds. He would watch the Pence Harris debate three times and realize this isn't 2016 and Biden. It's not Hillary Clinton. He has to move forward. A calmer, more issue oriented, less personality driven debate. He has the perfect model with the vice president follow his lead. Those are my words. Those are the words and the advice of one Newt Gingrich Trumper through and through. At least that's ah, for his political expediency is a trump or thrown through. And and that's his advice to the president States. Keep it under control. I suspect they'll have a split screen. Obviously tonight, and even when Donald Trump's Mike is muted. They're going have 6 15 minute. Topics. And for the first two minutes um thie opposing politicians. Mike will be Muted, but that doesn't mean we won't be able to see the facial expressions. I I think it's going to be high comedy and high drama as Faras Biden. He'll use the debate Tio making closing argument against Donald Trump his personality and other than that. I think Biden's best policy is simply to run out the clock. No runs, no hits, no errors, sort of performance. And if that happens, he wins. First email of the day comes to us from James Big John had doubled else am dot com. His email address. Topic. John. Let's have some fun tonight, which should be a layup if Donald Trump can just toggle his tongue to sync with his game plan. My debate drinking game. Take a chug each time Trump calls Joe Big guy, then watch Joe Biden redline as he tries to spin a retort. Enjoy signed the old windbreaker and longtime listener, James Last name redacted. I I don't know. I don't. I don't see Donald Trump. He's not real folksy guy. I don't see him referencing Joe. Big guy. Slow guy. What does he call Biden all the time. Sleepy, Sleepy. Joe. I see that happening. But I watch it because it's part of the job, But I'm not expecting the needle to move one iota, even with Whatever undecided voters were still out there, Watch these debates.

That's why three new swing, Okay? Okay, Marcus one. What kind of new Just interrupt the show whenever you want. Just so people know that, okay? Marcus, Go back with you again once again. Fill here for Larry Elder Larisa, Speaking of Florida, as I hear, and liar is one of the most courageous men you will ever meet. He never backs down. And he's never backed down. Even when things have really gotten difficult. I remember years ago, uh, in our former life, former station A lot of people came after him, and he never once back down. Which is what his song by the way back home means to me. He played it every day when we both worked at that former station years ago. As I said, Which explains in part why I have to beg Sean to play it When I fill in, Sean says. I haven't earned it. And besides, it's not my song. Okay, I accept that. But Larry was willing to go to the head of the network at that time to make sure I filled in for him in those days. And it has always been enjoy. You can reach me at Mark Heisler day well dot com m A. R K I s S l E. R and they will dot com. Be patient with me. If you're right, I'll get back to you. I appreciate all the kind notes that I do get the nasty ones from Facebook. But it all there's a group of them. Probably listening to me now always attack me. Whenever I post I'm going to do the show. And I'm still on Facebook so you can know when I do fill in. But like me, you should be done with that left this social media outlet Twitter. I'm done with them. Facebook is, of course, also left this outlet. But as I said, I, I post my appearance is there and I keep in touch with people from years ago. Let's give them credit. That is an amazing feature. That you can keep in touch with people. Students I taught many years ago in New York and so on. So does perform that valuable service. It's too bad that left us to run it. What Facebook's time will come to their moment in the sun will fade as will Twitter's eventually. You can't remain viable for long. If you're so one sided or you censor legitimate opinion, let alone fax. It's well think two cents or even that it is, you know, not with the free media supposed to do. As they, of course have done. You know what I'm discussing with the Biden scandals. Their exemption will eventually be taken away, allowing them to be sued, among other things, it's beyond me why they were ever given exemptions in the first place, But as I said, that'll all come to pass in time. In this first hour. I want to talk about the debate tonight makes sense, right? This might be interesting. The more I hear the more I have my doubts whether the president should even participate. I don't off too many people said that, but I have certainly thought about it. There are no questions about the other corruption of Joe Biden, pus faras, I Comptel or most, I think reasonable people. The revelation by one of the E mail recipients that Joe Biden was in on the take Just the latest bombshell that won't they just won't allow to be covered. I just heard today. NPR doesn't cover. We give them money right that government funded that are going to cover it. What efforts? It's also obvious. That is the biggest issue right now, and they may not ask about tonight's debate. And Trump might look unseemly, interjecting it in the short amount of time. He has And besides, the total buys the moderator, What else is new, right? The idea that they can just sort of shut off his microphone. Is outrageous. Who the heck do they think they are? That is that is unbelievable. So I want you to consider several questions. Should the president even participate. I know it's too late for that, but I mean, it's certainly something to think about. He's surging now, according to the reliable polls, so why take a chance? What should the president do about the bias of the debate? Moderator? How would you handle that? I don't know if you remember this. Should he do what Newt Gingrich did years ago and not accept many of the premises in the first place and say so. Vice President Pax was too nice to object. What's her name's Susan pages by his questions and premises. You should call that said No, No, I don't accept that. Your your question assumes something That's not in fact. Although I must admit I'm not sure the left even realizes how buys they are. They assume. That what they believe is the truth. And they hate President Trump with such a passion. Deservedly. So they think Never having any idea that we disliked Obama and Biden the same way that dislike Trump. They can't imagine that but we as conservatives, I know I did. I would Would honor our role is journalists or moderators. Just as I did when I used. I used to have a local show here on the Salem affiliate here in Los Angeles and every Saturday night. With two Democrats and two Republicans discussing the issues in the news. I mean, it wasn't always perfect sometimes, but we had a free and one if someone could show up or whatever. My Democrats love being on the show, and I thought I thought I was more than fair. In fact, I was so shocked years later, when I did the show and Democrat would hug a Republican and say, You know, they knew each other. Well, so how do you know each other? Because your show, we got to know it shut Sid Caesar. Hate people You don't know, right? Just Would my show be possible today? It'd be harder, Shawn. That's a great question, because even some of the people that were on I remember one guy. That Hey, moved to Tennessee. There's a number of years ago and he posts on Facebook. Anybody who could support Donald Trump I'm done with so that that was one. Now, some of them still like the show, and they write that I could do. What I have to scrounge around would be hard to find, but it wouldn't be as many I don't think because people have become so one side of that way. I think it's their side, not my side. But the leftists and Democrats think they're being fair. If they just asked their bias questions and assume that left this premises. They think they're being fair. Everybody thinks that way in order my Smith as long as you Mr Producer Inside there is long. You've distracted me. Years ago I lived in New York City. And when I can't think it was Nixon or whoever it was, I was a kid, and everybody was shocked that anybody could vote any other way. Then for the Democrats, they live in their own world, and that's come out over and over again. So in the first debate, you get Democrat Chris Wallace's buys. Questions involves premises. By the way. Did you see what's name of that guy? It doesn't matter. Sean, who was supposed to be the moderator of the second debate, he admitted he had lied. And he was I was going to say, Steve Scully, but I don't want to insult Vince Cully..

"So anyway, who of these writers is pro trump oh, there's a lot. There's a lot of I mean I I wanted in this book to range as widely as I could be a very boring book if I'm just writing about writers who are against trump who who are in the tank for trump and it wouldn't be as useful I think to anyone. So I mean there is a sort of Canon of sycophantic writers but there are sort of two kinds of of those writer. Some are just the. you have books by by Corey Lewandowski and and and gene pierrot and and newt. Gingrich has written four trump books in four years. I mean that is some dedication to pc Charles Dickens of our time end and. I I have to pause there and and. But then you also have you know those are just books that really often. Mimic trump's tones and that try to sort of not see in him. What is what is their tried to explain everything away then you have books that are sort of the pro trump intellectuals. Victor Davis Hanson Michael Anton. And I mean intellectuals inelastic term there's there's all sorts of kind of levels of of of thinking going on but. What did you make those because? No Yeah. They rich lowry. Who was the you know who as editor of National Review Oversaw the against trump the the big against trump issue they did before the election but sort of got religion afterwards get interns and those books. Might might my main conclusion with those is that they want to retrofit some kind of ideology onto trump after the fact they want to to say that there is something coherent and noble that is call trumpism as opposed to just something impulsive you know called trump and so they create these whether it's you know a new conservative nationalism theories that purport to explain what trump is really all about. But more often than not they just end up they. They claim to love trump for his beliefs and his principles, but they really are with him for his enemies right? They they they.

"It all around the world. Don't think anybody was eating bags. Did you have a bad? Oh, no, I don't think even if you either bad with me, OK, I will wait about the whole scene is kind of flirty. It's kind of creepy and you have Rudy Giuliani, saying that China manufactured the virus to release it on people. Back to Glenn Thrush is piece in The New York Times Soon after the actress who speaks with a heavy East European accent, asked the former mayor, if they can continue their discussion in the bedroom. Thank you again for giving me this time. Shall we have a drink in the bedroom? Mr Giuliani agrees and is then shown sitting on a bed as she appears to take his microphone off and he appears to pat her. So I watched the movie last night, Glen. Thanks for joining us, and he certainly does pat her. Was that just sort of paternalistic, or was he having other motives? I guess that's up to the viewer to decide, right? Well, I think it's emblematic of this line of questioning that my dog has started to exist. Noticed that I think you look at that dog out, sir. Maybe I think maybe you can In terms of Giuliani's intent. I think you'll get just as much out of talking to my dog is you will have a baby. Well, he responded. Yeah. Go ahead. No, I think Look, I think a couple of things the reason why this Is popping out right now, Apart from sort of the timing of the film, which I suppose Sasha Baron Cohen people should understand that special barrack Baron Cohen is a very political filmmaker. And and he has been particularly, I think active in terms of when he sort of drops his various persona and I grew up, not grow up, but I remember when he did the show where he started these kind of ambush interviews, right? With American politicians. He the one that I remember it was Giuliani's friend Newt Gingrich, when he really got Gingrich so I think part of what he's obviously trying to here is very much in the context of the election looking to humiliate Donald Trump's allies. And what we really have. Here is this convergence of two different reality shows, you know Donald Trump, Obama said This President Obama went back on the campaign trail yesterday and actually set this Of referring to the presidency in terms of a reality show. Mr Trump's own advisers have done so well l e G and the Blur character our reality show characters who are sort of making a foray. Into really politics and you have under Trump. A really, really politician who is making a foray into reality. Sort of reality television. I mean, I don't know if your listeners have been watching this very closely this morning, but, for instance, the president posted his entire interview with lovely stall. Of 60 minutes online this morning. In which he very dramatically gets up in storms storms away. I mean, that was calculated, you know, I think in terms of imputing motive, we compute motive on that. So I think what this really represents in Giuliani is kind of the fulcrum of this. Is this collision of these two reality TV shows 11, which is the Trump presidency and one which is an actual reality. TV show and movie producer. In the That is my cultural political announcement. Well, I'll take that. Giuliani said that he was only trying to take his microphone off when he laid back on the bed. And reached into his trousers to tuck his shirt in that that's all that Waas So I guess you can watch the movie and try and figure it out yourself. The editing is so fine and quick. That I suppose it's plausible, but it also looks very much for sometimes three or four unedited seconds, right, five or six unedited seconds like he's doing more than trying to get the microphone cable off and his shirt back in. Maybe that's beside the point here. But do you suggest then that Sasha Baron Cohen, anticipating this election started this film when he did. I mean, he didn't just throw it together last week. Oh, absolutely, absolutely. I think there's no question that such a barren Colin Is highly political actor. I mean, you know, I don't know. You know, one of his really interesting performances SA recently and I think it might have been that's like certain Amazon produced serious was about him playing. An Israeli spy. I believe it was in in Syria. During? No, I'm sorry. It was in Iran during the 19 sixties and 19 seventies. He has. And if you listen to the interviews with Sasha Baron Cohen really going all the way back to bore out to some of the other films, he is an elegy. An overtly political and a present is looking to sort of gotcha people. He makes no bones about what was interesting that had a brief text exchange with Giuliani yesterday after this went down And he said he called the police. Lon Cohen and he said immediately after He called the police. Sasha Baron Cohen's lawyer, showed up and began litigating so begin became actually kind of a lawyer to lawyer conversation between Giuliani and Starship Aaron Collins, attorney In the past, I've heard interviews with Sasha Baron Cohen, saying that he literally has that attorney or a team of attorneys. At the ready, So I'm sure the eventuality that well, how is it that a Rudy Giuliani with this fumbling, you know, sound crew? I mean, the whole thing looks ridiculous. How is it that a Rudy Giuliani or any of these Ordinary Americans sit down with Borat and say the things that because we have seen Over and over and over that Americans in this particular moment in our history will never walk away from a camera. And particularly, and Julian. He is a man, so I covered I covered Rudolph Giuliani during the 9 11 attacks. Obviously a very different character at that moment in America's rare Right. But Giuliani prior to that had a reputation for being you know, one of the big issues in this, you know, And this very much resonates with today is Giuliani had a number of very serious, insignificant incidents of police silence again acting against African American men during his tenure as mayor. And dismiss them and insulting terms. So Giuliani Before the Trump presidency was somebody who was very much on the back nine of his career. He has 76 years old, after all, hey, had failed well from Hey, he had adventure in the petroleum business. Uh, Bracewell Giuliani in Texas that did not pan out Well is security business, which I don't know if you recall he was in business with Bernard Kerik, the former police chief of New York, but on the way in practice, what's the point of all of this, though? The point of all this is Rudy Giuliani likes the attention, usually on very well not have been would not have thrust himself in the center of an impeachment controversy. Or the Hunter Biden issue if he did not want to be in the center of the action? Yes, I guess I think one has to assume that so when you're asking yourself, why wouldn't sit down with an interviewer? Well that we used to have a term for Ed Touch in New York City. That was US reporters He was unavoidable for comments. Ah, characters and they do sign. They don't read it, but they do sign a waiver saying, Yeah, you can use my image. You can use the city of video or audio and then when it turns out to be a sham They're stuck on DH. So there is Glenn Thrush writing about it in the New York Times today? I just saw it last night. Everybody gets a chance to see it on Amazon Prime on Friday. And you all can make your judgments then. All right, I'm out of time. I just wanted to touch base with you, Glenn..
What You Need to Know About the iPhone 12
"Apple held its second big virtual event of fall yesterday word announced an updated home pod smart speaker, and of course, the headliner its first five G. capable iphone. We originally expected this phone in September but production was delayed due to supply chain issues from the pandemic. Now that it's here, we turn to senior personal tech columnist Joanna Stern to tell us what we ought to know join us. Thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me. Joanne on tell us about this new iphone twelve. I think you mean four new iphone twelve's because in making things much easier for us all to understand apple released four new iphones. But they also have these slight differences. There's the new iphone twelve mini with is actually not that many but does look a lot smaller than the last few iphones we've seen. Then there's the iphone twelve and then there's the iphone twelve pro and the iphone. Pro Max you got that all. Only. Just. So what new features did we see I think that's what makes this year's upgrade pretty great is that there are lots of new features across the entire lineup and the big ones include five G. Five G. is an all of these new phones. There are new designs of all of the new phones more square edges looks a lot like the iphone five or the iphone four was very nice beautiful design some. Really happy to see that you've got camera tricks and you've got all new screens, new Oleg screens across the entire lineup plus your favorite anew charging configuration. Right? I am very excited. The design has a new magnet in the back. This is not visible, but it's below the surface and there's a magnetic coil and apple is now rolling out a new accessory line called MAG safe. You might remember the name from those old macbook. And these magnetic accessories will clip to the back of the phone and one of them is a new wireless charger. That apple says will be a lot faster than usual wireless charging, and of course, the big update here is five G. capability. Five networks are supposed to be the next generation networks and bring faster download speeds better connectivity. And we know investor sentiment has really reached a fever pitch in anticipation of this new phone, what are they and apple hoping this new phone can do for the company I think they are all thinking back to other quote unquote super cycles, and these were big leaps in iphone technologies whether it was big leaps in screen size or big leaps from three G.. To Four G. and there was a lot of excitement around these almost a decade ago and that really got people to upgrade in by new phones because the technological leaps were significant here we're seeing a little bit of that, but it's certainly not the leap I. think that investors or even apple thinks it is especially in five G. I've tested a lot of. Five g phones and they can be very fast but they can be pretty fast when you're in specific areas and when you're on your phone, you don't really feel those speeds. Of course, what the investors and apple are hoping is that the speeds unlock newt sorts of innovations, new types of APPs new types of technologies that run on top of it we saw. This with four G. Four G. unlocked a whole new generation of APPs things from Uber to instagram our phones could load these things faster. Now, our phones are pretty much fast enough. What are we going to do with this faster speed? That's the big question yeah, and we heard over and over again during yesterday's presentation that quote five G. Just got real you've quite. A bit of reporting on five G. Networks I wonder what's your take is five really real now for smartphone users five G. Israel and you can get it but you have to be in a very specific set of circumstances to get it. You need to have the right carrier you need to be in the right location in verizon sense you actually need to. Be Outside standing near a opole. So it is real but is not going to be very real for most users right now. So it sounds like there's a bit of a disconnect between proponents of five G. and consumers. How are we expecting to see apple and their carrier partners trying to close that gap? A Lotta this is about future proofing you have A. Five G. Phone now, and these networks start to get better and they start to get better pretty rapidly. I have to say I have seen a substantial increase in the last year last summer I had to journey to different parts of the US to get five G.. Now, I can just go to a different section of the city or a different section of. My neighborhood to try to test out five G.. So it is getting better the speeds are getting better but there are a lot of technical hurdles and there are a lot of glitches frankly, I mean, there are times when I testify g and the same exact spot and I could get blazing fast speeds, one minute, and then another minute just sort of four speeds. Are Joining as our senior personal columnist. The big question is, should people upgrade to this phone or should they wait my advice is to wait for my review but if you're looking preorder, my first piece of advice is do not upgrade just for five G. that's not a reason to upgrade. But what's really nice about what apple was there was a whole other big feature set that you get here that isn't just tied to five. G. You get those nicer designs you get that nicer screen you get that more compact form factor. If you want to get that many device loads of new camera tricks many that I don't frankly understand and need to even dig into because the presentation was so packed with all that information. So don't just go by for five G. go by for the big package and what it all means together. All right anything else that jumped out. At you about yesterday's event. Yes. Interestingly, they started the event talking about the product that we never remember that apple makes, which is the home pod, a new home pod mini, and this is a really compelling little product. It is a smart speaker from Apple Ninety nine dollars. Obviously, they're to compete against the Amazon and the Google Minis of the world lots of features that others have had before it's lagging in music support. No. spotify and Pandora's not going to be there for a couple of months but seemed like a compelling holiday gift by

I have to say I have seen a substantial increase in the last year last summer I had to journey to different parts of the US to get five G.. Now, I can just go to a different section of the city or a different section of. My neighborhood to try to test out five G.. So it is getting better the speeds are getting better but there are a lot of technical hurdles and there are a lot of glitches frankly, I mean, there are times when I testify g and the same exact spot and I could get blazing fast speeds, one minute, and then another minute just sort of four speeds.

Boston - Stephon Gilmore Tests Positive For COVID; Patriots Cancel Practice
"Is falling we had what everyone probably could have expected was going to happen, which is a positive test involving a member of the New England Patriots following up the two positive tests. They had late last week or earlier a few days ago with Cam Newton and and and after that Bill Murray practice squad d e l it's Stephon Gilmore who tests positive on a well actually tested positive on Tuesday. Everyone found out about it on Wednesday when you received a second test and now we have a full-blown cold crisis on our hands involving the Patriots and possibly the rest of the NFL in addition to this you had two more positive test with the Titans who are complete mess right now and at risk of missing their second straight game And you have a positive test with the Raiders. So this is starting to fall apart Dragon. It's not really a surprise to you or to anyone know, you know, look John we talked about before and and going into the Patriots game. I thought it was I thought it was completely stupid that they played the game against the Chiefs that they force-fed it down everyone's throats because we just I didn't know what could happen. I mean we knew that if people were contagious but asymptomatic like, you know, you you are at risk for something like this. So now not only do you have the Patriots dealing with something but something could happen with the Chiefs. I mean everybody's putting out there on Twitter, you know, Stephon Gilmore shaking hands getting real close with Patrick Mahomes after the game. I mean, that's just great. I mean, let's just let's just like the whole season on fire. I mean this is this is what we talked about. This is why I thought it was completely stupid that they ran that game down everyone's throat, which if they just said, you know, what wage We don't know what's going on. We we don't we don't know how this is going to spread. Let's just be careful for now. And let's just add a week 18 on and move Chiefs Patriots. Then give them a whole two weeks. Keep people quarantine all that stuff just to be safe because what we really don't want to have happen is two of our Marquee franchises to call become, you know, just on fire with this stuff and that's what we're getting right now. And it's just it was totally avoidable. It's it's a shame and now now we don't know what's going to happen because really we are now getting to a Tipping Point in the NFL that this could spiral out of control and could cost the season and what's amazing is again. It's a surprise to no-one but A way to have saved this off was to do the obvious thing and cancel this game and what we know as as far as the facts are concerned sure. You can't necessarily tie Gilmore directly to Newton wage, but the fact remains that he was reportedly one of the 20 players who had close contact with Newton as late as Friday and therefore placed on a separate plane flew off Kansas City with twenty other players in a plane. That's not great. Okay, and then they played a game and he's all up in Mahomes Grill after shaking his hands and then they fly home on a plane where the air circulation is, not terrific here. So that's what you've created. It would be stunning right now. If there weren't several other cases that pop up in a few days again, you cross your fingers after Newt and hoping all right, maybe it's isolated. But then you just invited this. So now we're looking at Practice canceled Wednesday. It looks like it's probably cancel dead. Tomorrow, I don't see any way they returned to the facilities here and this game is in Jeopardy as well as several others on the NFL slate here Greg and we throw up our hands and say what do they do now dead?
"newt" Discussed on CATS Roundtable
"The morning America this is the cats roundtable trunk, Katzman TD's here. Sunday morning. Well, what the heck is going on with the election. Well, one of the most knowledgeable guys I know and calling in from the Vatican off definitely need a prayer. Is Newt Gingrich a historian speaker of the House presidential candidate and We'll commonsense Guy Good Morning Newt Gingrich. How are you? I'm doing well and it's always fun. Chance to travel you. Is More than enough stuff out there to talk about. I know I mean it's just I can't believe it's fifty yard games to go to the actual election I. Think One of the biggest dangers we have India election is seventy states mailing out. Hundred million mail ballots unsolicited. I mean one could understand people requesting A. Ballot. You're in the military you're traveling etc. But unsolicited a hundred, million ballots I mean, it's crazy. Isn't it? What is it is crazy and I did a podcast awhile go by two of them about Nancy Pelosi trying to class. How bill called HR Sixteen, eight hundred, which has page after page basically to change the election law to make it easy to steal. The. The Democrats ideal model you wouldn't have to do you are you wouldn't have to prove where you lived. You could go ahead and both by mail or nobody else verifying that it was good it was you doing it. And of course, you look at a place like. Nevada where the state legislature and the governor changed the rules but three weeks ago to send out a ballots to everybody who exists and the post office sent them a letter saying. You know because there's such a huge turnover in Nevada there are two hundred, thousand names. Who they know have left the state. And so. I think what the Matt at all Democrats and I think what they hope is it will be know mounds of valid city apartment houses and at nursing homes, and the Culinary Union is the strongest Democrat goes musician Nevada and my guess is they'd be thrilled to go out and pick up these ballots and both of To be a real helpers and I think that gives you a flavor of Just what's coming my view is that trump has to win by a big enough margin that they can't feel who says. Speaker Gingrich is not enough of citizens in the election process to crosscheck who has voted and who has. Centered in by by mail I mean there's no crush check. What's right and and I think the states that do that in most states are not going to do that and most of the key swing states that trump has to carry out and do that you go to a place like New York, you know how what a disaster the primary was in man. Whose truck I think nine weeks to count and the losers now suing on the grounds. was still wrong..
Jay Beever, Embraer, and Designing Luxury
"Jay. You're an interesting guy because your proof that talent and innovation can cross pollinate different professional fields. But let's start at the beginning talk about cars. Where'd you start such a fun story? I. Think there is something that can benefit a lot of people because sometimes we have a mentality that we can't do something if we're not trained or degreed in a certain skill set in that regard I always had a dream of being a car designer automotive designer it started because of my own Ed Richter and his wife k they own studebaker. Rare student bakers like the Rock, any Newt Rodney the famous Nordic football coach and that particular studebaker in thirty two and thirty three head a version with a rumble seat. The back of the seat would open up and you can sit back there. Well, he owns one original condition. They still drive it to this day and I remember as a child going to their home and peaking in the garage and not only was the rock. Ni there. But hiding around the corner three cars wide a commander in another student bigger from thirty three in disheveled but yet al capone gangster looking. Need to be restored in the Shadows Bee's, and it was inspiring and he has since restored that commanders well, beautiful cars that led to a journey of understanding Raymond lowy and his influence with the star liner and and everything else that he did outside of automotive everything from the coke bottle two steamships, the example of cross industry designed capability, and how they can learn from each other. So those automobiles and being so enthralled with the shapes and forms and the mysterious nature of them. Of course, because they are stuck in a garage was always a thrill being in the big three capital. Detroit suburbs knowing some ankles at work for the car companies and my mother worked for crain communications and she was a key line artists which was related graphic design page layout for making magazines back before digital publishing back when we had use razor blades and wax I've got some razor blades stories she would come home that's the articles in the early days of graphic storytelling, pie charts, and that stuff before the Mac really did it well, for us I got to watch all that and it was all related automotive interesting thing was like billing model airplanes World War Two model airplanes. Give me a B seventeen, b twenty, nine, b twenty, four I would recommend them get another kit and build it again, sometimes melt holes in the side of the single to a bottom of. So aerospace was like the carnal thing inside waiting to come out, but it was going to be cars. So I did I ended up in the car business I used to take my mom's take from those key lining page layout days with exacto blades in Pinstripe, my nine hundred and fifty seven Chevy matchbox car, and that was six years old playing with exacto blades if you can imagine that. Better than matches I guess. But maybe not much. Those, always stayed with me. So from graphics, you can make something look different to designing a car. All of this is really about transportation design being thrilled with things that move. So that was kind of the start of it, but I couldn't afford Zion College I would have loved to have gone to CCS, I spent a couple of summer classes in graphic in other types of designs like pottery, Constanza, pottery as. A kid but it's learning POW powdery Auto Detroit on the why am I being exposed to this? But then there's incredible community college in mccomb county they're outside Detroit and they had a great drafting program. My opportunity to get into the big three was through drafting go. This is great. Fell in love with in high school, and now I can have a career doing this. So went into drafting CAD design hired. At Ford, Motor Company in Nineteen ninety-three as an intern doing cad purity aided design drafting and three D. modelling, and that's when that stuff was really just coming on board it used to be guys had to draw. So you were at the forefront of that new technology in many ways going back to the drawing real quick I think the thing that helps the most even to this day is understanding what A. French curve can do and a large spine. One of my projects at the college was to create an body car, GM car body side, and three different views, projecting the points in three different orthographic views and make the arc continuously perfectly smooth accelerated curves were necessary in all of us so that you could inevitably put that on aluminum plates that was a hard way to go but it was fun. So then. We get into Ford and they had their own homegrown computer system called the PG S and that was done on these lundy tubes that were tube TV's really with light pens and we stroke the light pens on the screen and rotate things around, and there's a little keyboard tracking our time talk about ours disappear quickly when you're building things I couldn't have thought I could of ended in a better career exam. Making something from nothing into three D. and having it show up on the road someday. So I really liked that approach to design design engineering though I hadn't had the opportunity to actual industrial designer transportation design school like you'd find in Pasadena Arts Center or
Everyone is Cheating in Counter Strike
"Let's go over here to the scandal and drama going on here because it is not your typical cs topic a nude I feel like normally when we talk about Cs, it's happy thoughts. It's our feel-good place. We're talking tournaments we're talking big roster moves I thought this was behind us in the tier one scene. And it has been broken out like wildfire and it's definitely not the last of it where we are seeing coaches. Being banned left and right now with the scene. So to fill everyone in, the might not know there's a bug where there was a bug in the game that would allow a coach and correct me if I'm wrong here, newt, essentially the coach would sometimes like spawn in certain parts of the map and then could look around like three sixty see everything that's going on so that obviously the disadvantage or the advantage of this as you could see where the other team might be going and things like that. Correct. Basically. A Cypher Kim. Yeah right or South for ten. It's exactly like a cipher came from Valerie and yet it would spun you in a random spot. Sometimes, we saw happened in spawn so you can see what the opposing team was buying know which way they were splitting in how that would work. Sometimes, it was literally in the middle of the bombsite right and it just froze you overhead in gave you kind of full three, sixty view if you move your mouse around, you can see everything. Yeah and so it's been recently busted that a number of coaches have been taking advantage of this bug and now it's a hot topic. So let's just kind of. A go through this. So I guess the whole reason the started is zoo said peacemaker were the first to report the bug which has since been patched right. But then esl kind of started going back and like reviewing the tapes and films and things like that to see if anyone is taking advantage of this and now I will say this and I will give you credit specifically because you've said it multiple times on. The show if you don't think people have been and are still going to cheat in the online era of of e sports, you are ridiculously naive and I know a new you have said that in different words on the show before but now I I'm a believer I'm buying into your belief that of course, in one way or another, all these guys are going to find an edge whether that be cheating or not. Cheating is not only like aim hacking or wall hacking, right? Like that's speed hacking whatever the hacks that you see it's not just that that could easily pop up a twitch stream in have that on the monitor where they could be relayed information of economy. Right? You would know the economy, you will get a general idea of. You get a little bit more information than you obviously normally could. I'm. Not Saying it's. Everybody. Tries to find didn't edge. That's just the world of competitive sports whether it's traditional sport or needs for people try to find an edge in this seemed like one of the obvious ways it could be done now didn't help that counterstrike had a bug in the game that also allowed this to happen. Right. But at the end the day people knew it was their coach news, their players knew it was there and they allowed. It Tappan and they took advantage of it in man did we get a ton of evidence like on people take really I think we're just getting to the typically icebreaker I. think There is so much more floating down beneath that. We will get not even talking about tier two or tier three S. this was probably in occurrence in in most matches would be my guest but I think from even tier one we're really just. Starting to scope it out and find out what's happening. Stuff's even coming out today. Yeah. So some of the big ones here I think. From just a more recent standpoint, heroic the coach for heroic hundred. ENDED UP, getting busted for using it during the dream. Hack Masters Spring in ten rounds on one map. and. That's just what they've reported so far I can only imagine. He's done it then more reports on him now that also come out, it's happened more than as they're watching more film and again, these were just for esl sanctioned. Right so now you're having other organizations or other attorney or got. Going back and watching and reviewing their tapes right. So this is all just I mean it's just a giant web that's getting cast it out there now, people watching the film. So I just want to throw out this gentleman's name because he's really the one that kind of helped break everything by doing the legwork and that's meet you from ESL. Lewinsky might be pronouncing that right him in Steve doned went through fifteen hundred demos. It took them three weeks of basically each doing at twelve hours a day to go through all these demos to find stuff in I mean, look they. Not, only catching the ones that have just gotten band, but they're pushing more information out now for other demos at they're finding letting other event organizers know that, Hey, this was a bug. This is a timeframe has been going on in now we're seeing it from like what beyond the summit just came out and released their sanctions today. This is affecting road to Rio. Now because points situations have been messed up in. Teams have been eliminated that we'll talk about in a second but for heroic, it's a really big stain because they just came off of the win of Cologne people were looking at them and really a positive light right like that. Feel good time. Do you want to? Sets you WANNA know how fast life can come at you and edge if you go hundreds twitter account. His one, he has his two recent tweets. Heroic, second, best in the world two hundred has been suspected. He tweeted. Just like instantly he goes UA were second best in the world to I am now suspended like that's how fast life can hit you in this. In this world you've got a one year suspension right for for what he's done in. Again, there could be more coming down right like we haven't heard official rulings from valve yet on if they're going to take action on this or if they're just gonNa let the to's handle it. But yeah, the definitely be more I mean he he's getting a twelve month ban.
"newt" Discussed on Intelligence Squared U.S. Debates
"Which have no commercials which have no audience interruptions. which are serious and substantive run by moderators like Jim Lehrer will draw the the. Out The. Candidate's views. They are in my view substantive and important and I don't think we should be confused with some primary debates. I'm thinking. Of. A as an ABC News correspondent for many years every four years or so some correspondent in a few times it was me prior to the first debate would be asked pleased to a new story about the history of the debates Oh and please include quote the great debate moments. And I know what moments they were talking about they were talking about. One that you mentioned already where Jimmy Carter said that he was consulting his daughter Nuclear Policy One where Gerald Ford Mistakenly said that Poland, was no longer under Soviet. Domination one where President Reagan. Quipped in response to Jimmy. Carter's a hitting him on a well cared position. Well, there you go again in the audience clapped loved it one some from the primary debates where you know Rick Perry, saying oops and another where well I I could go on and on I there was no greatness. There's no greatness in any of these and most of them are mistakes. and. And they're memorable and they're entertaining and they may actually tell you something about the candidate but they weren't great debate moments and I'm not sure that we've ever seen. Great debate and I'm wondering do you disagree with that and I'm also wondering do you think it's a prerequisite that a president be a great debater period? When you said, the ABC, asked you to write the article and look at ask you to look further great moments. That's the trouble with journalism today. They're not interested in this substance there now. I. I have a cousin who wasn't Assessment Press Secretary for the vice presidential candidate Dan Quayle was a deputy presser for Dan Quayle. And Dan. Quayle would go around the country and he would compare themselves to. Jack Kennedy. So the staff kept saying to Dan don't do that. Don't do that because Republicans the Democrats will take you apart. So. Dan Quayle gets to his vice presidential debate opposite Lloyd Bentson. And Dan Quayle gets up and he says I am was older than Jack Kennedy and keep comparing Helter Jack Carey and. Benson who had known. Dan Quayle had been comparing themselves to carry on the troll was ready for him and he said. I knew Jack Kennedy Jack Kennedy was a friend of Mine and you. Mr Quayle are no Jack Kennedy well, that became the big thing of the debate. Well. It was a good response, but it shouldn't have been the. The main thing should have been are you for the war against the war you want to raise taxes early want to do this you WanNa have a better healthcare system that. ABC. Didn't ask you to look for asked you to look for the moments. You're right. You're right. So do you think it's a journalists filtering problem that the debates are remembered through these gaffes basically and one liners as opposed to wait on have time to talk that much about journalists today but it seems to me That what Watergate and Vietnam did. was charged a lot of journalists into instead of being skeptics which they should be tournament a Sonex. And that's the price we pay for what happened our country I wanNA bring in another. Much more personal connection to the journalists. Journalists as moderators. So as I mentioned, I worked for ABC News for than thirty years. I began moderating the intelligence squared debates towards the end of my ABC career. And for folks who may not know intelligence squared debates are structured in the classic style Oxford Style where there's a single resolution and there's one side. Sometimes it's one person or two people and another side one side is trying to prove the truth of the statement and the other side is trying to disprove it. So it's very very focused. It's got rules of civility it's got timekeeping etc, and it was a transition for me to realize that moderating a debate had almost nothing to do with having been a journalist and my I turn off my journalism side primarily when I moderated a debate, it's a whole different skill set. and. What I see my role being is to preserve the integrity of the debate, not just to keep it on time but to keep it on point to you know if a if a if somebody asks very telling question and the question in my judgment is dodged I will stop the debate and ask the debater to address the question or acknowledged that he's not going to answer it but but to not allow the dancing around. What I see, my colleagues doing who are moderating the presidential debates and the primary debates who are journalists. is they're trying to have their moment they're trying to they're trying to make news. They're trying to create the GAFF. They're trying to create the one liner, and I'm you know my colleagues would kill me for asking this question, but it's one I'm asking actually sincerely. Isn't necessarily the right move to have journalists being the moderators of the presidential debates. The fact that the journalists are is the result of history. It's a result of. The candidates managers telling their candidates. Mister Fordham wister Carter that you want to pay you want A. Journalist journalist be the asking the question. That's why I would say that the best thing would be to have thoughtful citizens who know the issues as moderators. There was a really interesting incident where again, my colleague somebody, I'm quite fond of Candy Crowley of CNN was moderating a debate between President Obama and and Governor Governor Romney. Two Thousand and twelve and She she stepped into the debate when she felt I believe it was Romney said something that she felt was an error and the journalist instinct in her came out right then and she she fact checked him in the moment she corrected him she did not do so in my view aggressively or rudely but but it took people's breath away that she. Did that she got a lot of criticism for it. I actually don't think she should have done that I think that the person who should have challenged Romney was Obama not the moderator. But. Again. I'm wondering do you think that the moderators should ever play that role of fact, checking since no journalist worth her salt wants to have incorrect information going over the airwaves the instinct is strong but do you think that the moderator journalists should suppress that? It's a very difficult hard question I have heard from a lot of people saying that. We should have fact checkers in the debates and then the argument of course, there's going to be the fact checkers and I think there's an existential problem of our time and that is what is fact and what is true. It's hard to believe, but that's a true statement. Yes. Tired of labor. That's what's happened in our current society and I believe it's the job of the opponent. That that's why you have debate. It's it's so the other side will correct it..
"newt" Discussed on Intelligence Squared U.S. Debates
"Was that the main? You got it exactly right and. I say the book I then had a very unpleasant meeting whistle broadcasters to invite them to cover the debates. And told them what the rules were including no reaction shots. And they were screaming at me saying you're telling us how to cover the debate. And I said this is not your debate. This is not the broadcasters debate this Lee Women voters debate we are inviting you to cover an event which is not yours. And dixieland who is a friend of mine was ahead of CBS. News got so mad at me got up and walked out. And he later came back and Dave. Has He, left I said Dick. If you leave, I said NBC an ABC will be very happy love and Then he came back and everybody. They had to adjust to the fact that this does not belong to them. It belonged to an independent sponsor. And that was to meet the requirement. That if the networks did it as organizations who stations were licensed by the FCC. The federal law. fulltime to everybody. So this was a this was a workaround. It's. Equal. Another couple of things that you brought up the negotiations so It's still the case. Why don't we get audience faces in the in the debate and why? Why journalists the question and why? I know that the lead one to just have the the two candidates. Debate with each other and talk to each other and question each other and challenge each other. But they've always refused. It's always I will answer a question from a journalist and I'm not going to even acknowledge that the other person is over there which which is one of my criticisms of the debate has a intelligence squared debate moderator where we try to encourage interaction between our debaters. One of my criticisms is that this is more like A. Parallel press conferences in a certain sense where journalists are asking questions to a candidate who answers him the next thing that happens maybe a completely different question to the candidate not always I know that over time that's involved but why? Why were the candidates so adverse to the idea of just having head on head? No intermediary kind of debate from the beginning as an excellent question the answer is that the candidates, managers and advisers. Tell them. You don't want to be looking like the bad tough guy asking tough questions are criticizing your opponent. You want somebody else to do it. You want to journalists do it. You ought to be responding to a journalist's question rather than you being the nasty guy that's a public will not like. Young well, how do you feel about it? I think it's wrong. I would I would like to see the candidates question each other but I can tell you that their candidate manager will say over my dead body. So things began to change. between eighty, four and eighty eight. So you are you're a CO chairman of the debates sponsored by the League of Women Voters I think through three to four cycles seventy Cincinnati so many six. And then the league ends up. Dropping out the league became very upset. At their perception that the parties were I would say colluding on what the terms were and telling the League have they were going to do it and the and the League took great umbrage at that and simultaneously. A, number of organizations had. Proposed that there be instead of the League. A kind of organization devoted to to launching these debates these presidential debates, every four years. You are part of that. Effort to to to found organization and to to compress a lot of history. An organization eventually emerged in. That's the commission on presidential debates. The League dropped out that was that was a bad period though it was not very bad. I concluded and others that the only way this could get down as if the parties the two major parties Republican Party's number. If they rather than the candidate. Would institutionalize the idea of debates. And that's the way it started. Later it had become non-partisan but without the two parties and we're fortunately that time we had leaders of both the Republican Party and the Democratic Party who realize the value of debates so they organized the what. Evolved to become the current commission on presidential debates. The The person who led the League of women voters at the time that the league dropped out said this the league has no intention of becoming an accessory to the hoodwinking of the American public. Is hoodwinking a fair. A fair word you think well, I was no longer co chairing it or negotiating. So I was on the negotiations, but I do think there were legitimate complaints by the league. And that the parties.
Newt Minow on the Presidential Debates
"Hi everybody I'm John Donvan and this is intelligence squared US part of our discourse disruptor series and what we're going to be focusing on. Our the coming presidential debates they are coming sort of starting September twenty-ninth, the first of three. And of course, because everything's different this year, the debates are going to feel different almost certainly going to be. In some fashion remote, maybe the debaters, the candidates won't even be in the same place. There's only going to be one moderator. We're not gonNA live audience because you can't have that many people in one space in this dangerous time. Also what we have going on as a conversation simultaneously with which is focused on, maybe we shouldn't have debates maybe it's time to wrap up that whole institution and go back to a time of no debates. And when I say go back did you know that for most of American history this institution that we know is the debates did not exist that for most of our history, there were no debates and did you know that once we started having debates that in the first series, there was a remote debate the candidates were not in the same place and there was no live audience. And there was only one moderator. So maybe things are circling back. There's a lot of history here and we are interested in that because. At intelligence squared, we are very interested in history and we are also very very interested in debates. So that's what we want to focus on and we want to focus. In this case of discourse disrupters with an excellent source of information about the past and the present and potentially the future, and that is a gentleman named Newton Minot and Newton Minnow is an old friend of intelligence squared us and he's also known as the father of American presidential debates and we'll talk a little bit about why that is. But first, let's bring Newt Minnow into the conversation newt. Thank you so much for for joining us. It's really a pleasure to be back in communication with you. John I. LOOK FORWARD TO I. Admire your work or the intelligence squared very very much. Well, thank you. Can I ask before we start everything else I find it interesting that for folks who don't know you have lived through some very, very disruptive times and this one in your nineties a comes at the after a long series of other adventures. I mean, you have lived through I, think twenty three presidential elections. At this point, you have seen twelve cycles of the debates that we're GONNA be talking about. You lived through the major disruption called World War to. Use served overseas you went into politics You're an aide to ally Stevenson who ran for president does the Democratic nominee twice in the nineteen fifties. So you saw two elections then you joined John Kennedy's administration and you saw the trauma of his assassination and then you were very close friends with Robert Kennedy and you saw his assassination and lived through that and and now this. Just just to take a moment is, is this disruption different in dramatically in kind from all of the others you've seen so far? Well, I lived through all that, but then I had another. Exposure to politics with Obama, the because Michelle worked for our firm and and Barack came to be a summer associate and they fell in love and so we got. So we had another round politics with with with the OBAMAS. About that but all throughout, I would say the last fifty years of this you have been intersecting with this institution that we call the presidential debates take us back to nineteen, fifty, nine, nineteen, sixty, where as an aide to at least Stevenson. You actually were involved in the idea of pushing forward the idea that there there. He did not get to take part in that kind of debate but was interested in enemies interested because you are suggesting it. You have a very strong faith in the idea of technology. To be a force for good and for communication and you saw television as this, you're right as this big thing happening in the sixties. Well, it actually was in the fifties in when. In in the fifty six. Presidential, election. The incumbent President President Eisenhower. Having a heart attack. And there was a big question whether he would be able to run again. And I suggested to adly that instead of the candidates. Rushing. All over the country and speaking crowds that that. Now, we have television which reached every home. And that instead of traditional debate that. There'd be a series of joint appearances or debates between the presidential candidates. As they considered that his advisors thought it was a gimmick and it was he never suggested it. The Federal Communications Act when it was originally passed during the new deal. Required equal time for political candidates. The law said section three fifteen FA broadcaster gives or sells time to one candidate. At must give ourselves time to the opponent on the same basis. As a result that was interpreted by the Federal Communications Commission to mean any use of the air by a candidate including being in a news program. So the broadcasters were pressing to get news programs exempt. From the equal time requirement and they finally succeeded in the late fifties. But debates were not regarded as a news program.

The state of California has indecent exposure laws, but those only apply if someone is being sexual like masturbating in public or intentionally offensive flashing someone.

For the first half of the Twentieth Century San Francisco didn't have public nudity laws. FRISKIN S- just didn't go nude much but then the sixties arrived and with it naked people. Some saw disrobing as a form of political artistic or personal expression college students got a taste for streaking and then there were the hippies. It's just delightful to be in I'll be in and that's what this is another exotic prank to add to a growing list of student oriented rites of Spring. It's sort of a happy happening for hippies in San Francisco hippies wanted to get closer to nature and they got naked a lot in golden gate park. Here's a quote from police chief. Thomas Hill it wasn't uncommon for a Gal that come out of the bushes there in the. Panhandle. Without a damn stitch and stand right in front of you with our hands up. I was out in the park in two started going to it on the lawn beside me just to remind you sex is sexual and as such already illegal according to the state. But still conservatives wanted tougher local laws to prevent this kind of behavior and they eventually got nudity banned in the parks. However, the rest of San Francisco was still fair game. As time passed other cities made public nudity illegal among them, San Jose, and Berkeley Berkeley's interesting because it's been mostly due to one naked Guy Andrew Martinez a student at the University of California Berkeley. Decided that American society is sexually repressed and in an effort to write things he began attending classes and going everywhere else in the nude save for a pair of sandals backpack people theorized that Martinez was able to go nude without major complaint for so long because he was easy on the is Martinez attempted shock tactic soon, became old news among his fellow students to me was simply the naked guy. Administrators however sent Martinez home to stay warm until his case can be considered by a student conduct board in Nineteen ninety-two Martinez was expelled showed up naked to his disciplinary hearing at UC. Then in one, thousand, nine, hundred, three here arrived naked to a Berkeley city council meeting members were offended and voted to make public nudity a misdemeanor crime.

Hong Kong Police Take Steps To Enforce Controversial National Security Law
"Now to what appears to be new steps by Hong Kong police who are enforcing a controversial national security law. They have arrested four people for statements posted online police Said they were promoting independence from China as NPR's John rule, which reports these arrests raise fresh concerns about freedom of speech in the former British colony. The four suspects range from 16 to 21 years old. Police didn't identify them. But a pro independence group called student localism that disbanded at the end of June when the national security law was enacted, said on Facebook. All four were former members. Elise. Senior Superintendent Steve Lee said the suspects posted their desire online to promote Hong Kong has its own country and to unite pro independence groups in Hong Kong Thiss organization prose. In the social media's about the establishment off of a Newt parties. That way you could promote the independence of the Hong Kong Chinese Parliament imposed the National security Law in Hong Kong at the end of June. It was drafted past and enacted largely in secret and with little consultation from Hong Kong itself. Law banned subversion, secession, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces. Hong Kong's Beijing back leaders and China's ruling Communist parties say it was necessary after months of anti government protests in the city. Critics of the law is sweeping in vague, They say it threatens many of the freedoms that have said Hong Kong apart from the mainland since China regained control over the territory in 1997. Joshua Rosenzweig is head of the China team at Amnesty International in Hong Kong, he says this is a disturbing example of how the authorities air using the national security law to restrict freedom of expression. What we're seeing here is for young people who are potentially facing quite serious Jail time simply for expressing their political views online, you know, under international human rights law, blanket prohibitions of peaceful expression or just not not allowed. Several people have been arrested this month under the National Security Law for shouting band slogans or waving independence or liberation banners.

"Back on July, Twelfth Chuck woolery was trending, which always gets our attention. When we mentioned this name, Chris made the other day we gotTA. What is wordperfect style reaction? So just? In case you don't know. Chuck woolery was the host of the eighties nineties game show love connection. which was sort of scrolling through tinder in a doctor's waiting room? Am I getting? Am I? Get any ambience of that show right? Here's the opening theme of loving. Welcome to world connections. Where old fashioned romance meets, modern technologies taste. Where you hear all the intimate details of a first date. Our parents generation can hear a Beatles song and flash back to their childhood. You and I are Kirsty heard the love. Connection, team. At flashback to. Our Childhood Anyway Chuck woolery has refashioned himself as a rabid right winger on twitter. And this was the tweet to get everybody's attention. The most outrageous lies are the ones about covid nineteen. Everyone is lying the CDC media. Democrats are doctors, not all, but most like you built that in there that we are told to trust I. Think it's all about the election and keeping the economy from coming back, which is about the election? I'm sick of it. It was so conspiratorial David that he got a re tweet from president trump. And then four days later will re tweeted. My son tested positive for the virus and I feel for those suffering, especially for those who have lost loved ones. He then deactivated his Account News as he had tells CNN Chuck Son Fine and a symptomatic. I mean. Does it help the argument that there's no place for right wing voices in Hollywood?

"newt" Discussed on The Book Review
"That's very important. Important as well. This new smashmouth approach to partisanship more pronounced in the Republican Party than the Democratic Party in my opinion I think Gingrich is a much more important player than some of the others. You just mentioned all right well. Let's talk about the politics right now since you brought them up. I mean Newt Gingrich is still with us. What does he stand for these days? It feels like he's fully aligned with trump. Is that the case and is that consistent with as you see it with where he's coming from very much I start the book with the story that he was one of the finalists to be. Donald trump before he was president, his vice presidential nominee, he loses out in the end to Mike Pence and Gingrich's even sympathetic to why he lost. He says that he and Donald Trump or both pirates and having to pirates on the same ticket might be too much, but since trump was elected, newt gingrich has been very vocally supportive of the president on Fox. News. News and other conservative outlets he's written a series of books about president trump really presenting him as a new Ronald Reagan, a transformative leader and has a book out right now about the importance of of trump getting re elected to the country's future and I think he has donald trump's ear. To some extent, this is not surprising. I think their approaches to politics. Politics are very similar. A DONALD TRUMP also is willing to do whatever is necessary and break. governing institutions to achieve power and even Donald Trump's language the blistering language. He's willing to use against opponents. Relate resonates with what Newt Gingrich used to do in the nineteen eighties, and then the nineteen nineties when he said things that even made some Republicans uncomfortable about. About his opponents. What do you think newt? Gingrich wants now I. Don't know what he wants now I I I believe he does want to be remembered as relevant and important figure in the evolution of the Republican Party I think he sees an arc between Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump, and he wants to be seen as part of that part of the reason. Reason this all took place on Capitol, Hill and I still think he wants to be a presence of public presence. This is something he always craves that limelight. He craves the television cameras so that his opinions are out front and I think he wants to be the senior statesman of one of the senior statesman of the party You know in two thousand. Thousand, sixteen everyone talked about will the Party the senior Party leaders restrain trump, or what do they think of trump and and people refer to the Bush family, but I thought really newt. Gingrich is the person they should be talking about and I think Gingrich is more than comfortable with the current administration. Did you talk to Newt Gingrich for this book, not I. I met him before the book while I wrote the book. I tried several times, but he was unable to keep the meetings that said he did Brandt me. Access to his congressional papers, which are the bread and butter of how historians do their research there in West Georgia College, and they're really a phenomenal collection, a remarkable look into what he was doing at..

He's elected in Nineteen, seventy eight, and any comes to Washington ready to just tear everything down to shake things up to do whatever necessary to help.

Really taking on the Democrats in ways that they had not been comfortable with, and so he makes a name for himself very quickly, even though he's not part of the leadership in the early eighties. Okay, so you're a history. Professor Newt Gingrich Thought of himself as a history professor and was a history professor, but what exactly did he teach? How did his academic career? Career fit in with his political career well, he received his PhD until Lane. After attending undergraduate school in Emory and Gingrich wrote his dissertation on Belgian colonialism, and he wrote about how and why colonial government had failed to modernize local education and nurture an elite that was capable of sustaining economic growth, and what was remarkable about the dissertation in retrospect, which is what he spent. Spent his academic time on was that he was critical of the design of Belgian policies, rather than on the merits of colonialism, which were much less interest to him, but but that wasn't really his his main focus. I mean as soon as he gets to West Georgia College. That's his first job as a professor. He's deeply uninterested in the academic life I think in. In his first year as a professor, he applies to be the president of the university. He then wants to be share the department and he's impatient with the slowness of academia <hes>. He quickly gains a thirst for the life of politics, and that's really what engages him, and in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy four. He decides to run against the incumbent in his district. District John Flint who's an old southern Democrat. What are nudes politics like growing up? Because he conservative early on, and did his conservative ideology remained consistent throughout his life. Yeah, he comes from a working class family. The family's originally from Harrisburg. His father left his mother while she was pregnant with him, so he didn't have much of a relationship with him. He is raised. primarily by his stepfather, who's in the military, so <hes> Gingrich spends a lot of his youth travelling around. He's what we call an Army Brat, and lives in different places in Europe before the family finally settles in Georgia, which is the final stop? He's a Rockefeller Republican during the nineteen sixties. He he is conservative, but he is interested in Republicans like Nelson Rockefeller and then Richard Nixon who had ambitions of building a big Republican coalition as FDR had done for Democrats in the Nineteen Thirties. He doesn't really make a hard right. Right, turn until about nineteen seventy five I'm what prompts that well. He ran for the first time unsuccessfully in nineteen, seventy, four against flint. Then he's getting ready to run against Flint again in nineteen seventy six, and he meets some people associated with the conservative movement like Paul Way Rick. Who's running these camps for up and coming Republicans and he like many young Republicans starts to become enamored with what's this conservative movement that's bubbling up in America and talking about the need to dismantle government to be much more aggressive on national. National Security and this is when he starts to shift to what will eventually be the Reagan Revolution? Would you say that his guiding principles were firmly aligned with Reagan conservatism, or were there differences there? There were differences. <hes> Gingrich for example is much more concerned about environmental issues <hes> even in the early nineteen eighties than a lot of Reagan Nights, are he? He actually takes those kinds of policies much more seriously, but generally he lines up by the time he's in the house. He believes in tax cuts. He believes in deregulation.

"That planet some time indoors in hopes of getting some good leads for cooking right now though it has blossoms all over it Do I cut those offer. Just wait for the plant to mature assuming as stated there that she's going to use them for cooking and leaves are the principal thing to us. I think where. It's at least practical a pair of tweezers a little eyebrows as or whatever it might be to clip those flowers off. Because when you want the leaf four. It's well medicinal and other uses Cooking and so on you you you WANNA leave the plant. Have as much energy as it can. We're not breeders. We don't necessarily care what the next generation is going to look like so I believe where it's at least practical To go in and cut the flowers off now I understand. I've never done it but I understand that you can actually dry the floor. Cluster then and make tea out of it but I. I've never gone that route but my brother is a well retired chef and into all kinds of spices Including eye of Newt and other things keeps his keeps in his spice covered but not cauldron.

"They just. They just ran over a new that they don't. I don't think they hit it right here. Oh yeah this car. I think South did. Don't stop on. We'll get in trouble. This is a bit of a hair-raising moment. Sally stooped over in the middle of the road. And there's a car coming fast straight toward her. She will let me signal to the car because she doesn't want to antagonize someone on their way home. Luckily they slow a little bit and swerve around her. Thank you big black. Pickup truck passing We just save that newt from getting run over you probably think of crazy. It's like Letterman over me. I don't care about yeah. You don't want me to stop it but moving out of the road. That is the only part that's okay. Here's a dead one we're GONNA get this one three yes I don't blame you you just We just we should have been out here earlier. Awesome this is how you learn. You know there's one Oh instead of these are all just killed just tonight tomorrow night out here earlier time for sure say about the population. You know you save two. You've got eight. Our Dad was that say. That's pretty depressing. The Sun is almost below the horizon and we keep going back and forth over this half mile. Stretch of road is focused on the pavement straining to make sure we don't miss anyone we drive thirty feet. Stop Get out yet in Dr. It's getting harder to see the news. Cows don't seem like they understand what's happening. No they're pretty cute. They're heifers and if the calcium they'll step out of the way but if they're running across the field you know just GonNa go pell mell and you're not gonNA look where they're walking so it's just kind of bad luck for the newt's but yeah. If they were eating grass and they saw they went back up. Really sure at least scared of them. I you'd have to ask the cow. I don't know it feels. It feels wrong. You know to have so many of 'em killed on this road. It's not natural. It's not natural selection as some people say. Oh it'll just breed for faster. Newt's one of my neighbors said that that was pretty ridiculous. Neuter not getting any faster. I guess your neighbors probably wouldn't like the idea of putting up like new crossing signs We're afraid if we put them up that they'll get stolen when we first put out our cones and are signs. Somebody threw them into a pasture. So and you know we did get threatened. One spy somebody. He just stopped and told a volunteer to get the heck out of here and he wasn't wanted here and to leave right now known he was very nasty wasn't very polite. It wasn't a neighborly gesture. Shall we say it's after twenty five years of being here? Are you considered local or some people still see you as an outsider? Well I have kind of funny status where you know. I'm related to half the county you know. In the agricultural area my relatives are all out here on the ranches. But I didn't grow up here and have only been here for twenty five years so some people think of me as a new person and some people think of me as an old person. I talked to one neighbor. He had never seen newt. He never knew that they were here. And he's lived here all his life very hard to believe you know. Some people just don't notice. The Sun has completely sat. And it's got a really hard to see the new on the road. Were creeping along and the only light is from the full moon above and the car's headlights. This half Mile Strip feels like the center of the universe. It's really quiet but really loud with a car. Engine crickets and frogs very dark. The Sky is beautiful. You know. We're just kinda crawling along looking at the road. The road is real dark because it's wet does look like a full moon very pretty okay. I'M GONNA make at least one more pass. If we see a newt we stop most of the newts have made it where they're going tonight or else they didn't there may be a few stragglers but we haven't seen one for a while. It's been over an hour and we found fourteen newt's seven were alive and seven more dead. This was a good night. It's not always an even tally. Last night. I did really well. Nine live. Want to dead ones that if I could get up to an equal number of live ones done once I feel okay. We're done for the night. Everything looks and feels different to me than it did at the start of the evening. Not just because it's cold the frog sound louder than a jet plane and the moonlight is transformed the hills and the lake into a nighttime fairytale. It's that the news loom huge in my mind. I can feel their presence now everywhere. This is how sally must feel. And it's why she'll be back here tomorrow night and the night after that and every night until the new tsar done traveling across the road..
"newt" Discussed on Nocturne
"Honestly I think what made the difference was. I picked them up. I touch them. I saw their little mangled bodies and I felt how wonderful it was to find one. That didn't get run over and to carry it across the road. Sally didn't just carry the live. Newt's across the road to safety. She also moved the dead ones. I just put them outside off the road. I thought it was disrespectful to lead these poor dead bodies in the road. I just think when you touch something. You can't ignore it. I mean if you touch something you you're relating to it you have a connection or relationship with whatever it is that you're touching and there's no denying when you when you pick up their twisted little bodies you know they might even still be moving and you see what they were and you see what they've become and you just don't want that to happen you don't want you don't want that live. Newt that's walking so slowly across the road so innocently it is so small and the cars and trucks are so big and their bodies are so soft. You just don't want that soft little beautiful creature with its five little fingers. I don't know if they have five. But they had these really cute little fingers with these little suckers on the ends. You don't want that beautiful little creature to be run over by some stupid car or truck. You don't want that to happen. So that tactile in the moment experience woke sally up to the horrendous slaughter that was occurring on a regular basis right under her nose and then the other thing was I had this history behind me that I had I had seen them before getting run over and I felt that I had seen more before and I'm worried that their numbers were being reduced that the population was being decimated because honestly there are more cars. Come out here. Because I think they're avoiding the freeway and they're commuters and they come roaring through here and that's about the time that most of them want across the road at dusk and that's about the time people are driving home so they just have very bad luck as little notes. They're really really slow. A frog tiny little frog can make it across the road much faster than these little notes. They're just not very fast. And they do freeze they freeze when they see light they freeze and they raise up on their front legs. And the reason they're doing this is. They're showing the yellow on their underside. There yellow chest and underneath their Chen. And and this yellow orange color signifies poison they are poisonous. And they're just saying you know if you eat me you're going to die but you know the car is not going to eat them. It's just gonNA roll over them. The newts are very small and at night. When you're driving fast in the dark. They're not easy to see at the time. Sally thought they only want to cross the road once after the first rainstorm she didn't realize that from December to March they go back and forth between the lake where they breed and the hillside which is their home. She couldn't stand by night after night and do nothing knowing that these tiny animals just going about their business were in mortal danger and so the first thing I did was. I called my friend Gayle Seymour. Gayle is a retired environmental scientist for the California Department of fish and wildlife and then she introduced me to tod. Steiner who is with spawn spawn is the salmon protection and watershed network and the three of. Us became convinced that we could do something about this. I just called everybody. I knew and had a big meeting. This meeting was the birth of the brigade of volunteer organization. Dedicated to carrying these vulnerable. A determined little creatures from one side of the road to the other and from there. We developed a plan to not only you know. Pick up the newt's when they started crossing the road but also to collect information where most of them cross what time of day or night they cross what date cross they use an APP called naturalist that keeps track of all the data and we try to match that up with the weather so that in the future. We won't need to depend on volunteers. Maybe we can build kind of culverts or little fences to guide them to the culverts or maybe we can do some kind of intervention. It's a little easier to maintain. We're saving the Newt's but we want this population to survive over time. It's not like okay we're doing. This saved the NEWTS. And now we're going to go back to our old lives. It's a commitment. It's like you started working with the news. You'RE GONNA do it forever because they're going to need something forever..

He was excited about getting into cows. Something he'd never done so the ranch means a lot to us and we spend all of our time and all of our money on this ranch. We don't have regular help but we do. Hire people for instance. We have a neighbor who comes and helps Mike when he needs to move the cows and then I have two guys that helped me for half a day once a week on the garden so we hire people were able to keep up. You know work as hard if you love it so I really don't look at it and think of it as hard work and if if you love to be active and you love to be healthy. It's kind of a perfect fit. We enjoy physical labor and we did a lot more of it when we were younger. I'm not young anymore. I'm seventy seven also for us. We enjoy the animals all of them the sheep. The cows chickens dogs cats. And it's a pretty pretty wild area. We have weasels and foxes and coyotes and mountain lions and deer lots of deer raccoons for sure gophers for sure we have skunks and lots of birds. We have a great variety of neo. Tropical songbirds come in spring hawks. Owls living in the barn bats and very close by right down the road is Laguna Lake. A breeding ground for Newt's neutral are fairly common or they used to be fairly common. They're just little like salamanders type of Salamander and the kinds of newts that we have found on the road are rough skinned newts California. Newts and slender salamanders not long ago. Sally started realizing something was going on with the news. You know I hate to say it. But I've been noticing for some time that in the fall During the first really warm rainy evening they come out and across the road from the hillside to go into the late. Basically debris that's why they're going to the lake and I noticed that they were getting run over. I've known this for you. Know Fifteen twenty years. Maybe not much but last year when Mike and I were coming home from dinner at another ranch from Martian. Corey's it was late. It was about ten o'clock. We came to this area that we're going to visit later and we saw that they were crossing the road. I got out of the car. Mike was driving slowly illuminating the road and I was walking in front of the car and if a car came along he just you know motion them to pass us. He followed behind me with his lights on and I walked the half mile of that stretch of road near the lake and I picked up. Forty five dead. Newts and five live newts and when I got back in the car I said to Mike. I am going to do something about this. I can't stand this anymore. I'm going to do something about.

"Department high inclined to report a bunch of people out on the side of the road in the dark. What road please there until Lena Valley Road Right beside the lake? They're walking back and forth in the road with flashlights. Were aware of that. Issue there with the new brigade to what the new per game. Cheap cheap Barucha. Totten's there are about twenty five and they're all bread. Yeah Yeah I'll have seventy five sheep in the spring branch of babies fifty babies a lot of fun before you saw him along time. I keep them a year at least a year. You get attached to it I do. Yeah well you know. Some of them are are pets. They become pets because we have to raise them in the house if if Their moms are not good moms for example if they are rejected then we take them on and we bottle feed them and so they become attached to us and they're they're tame for the rest of their lives. They come right up to us. They like to be scratched. They like to be petted. They'll lean against your leg. They're kind of like dogs. That's really kind of cute. And so do you still let them go at some point or do you know no no. You can't let those sheep go. How could you you know I think most ranchers take pretty good care of their land? And you know. This community is characterized by pretty dramatic restoration efforts to try and improve the creeks and the water quality and that sort of thing through the resource conservation district. I've helped to do the same thing on other branches. We'VE GOTTEN FEDERAL GRANTS STATE GRANTS TO RESTORE CREEKS plant native plants improve habitats. You know that sort of thing. It's sort of my like my hobby. You know you wouldn't see. Passion Yeah Passion. I don't like the word. Hobby doesn't seem. It's not like a hobby. People wouldn't be out here every single night in the cold. The dark their life in the middle of the road for you okay. I'M GONNA make at least one more pass. If we see a newt we stop.

"newt" Discussed on CATS Roundtable
"Good Morning America. This is the cats round table. John Cats Matiz here. What's going on in the world? Well as a lot going on in the world and We're calling upon one of the smartest guys I know former speaker at House. An author a Just knows about a little bit about everything we have with us this morning. Newt Gingrich Give Mornings Mr Gingrich. How are you? I'm doing great and it's always fun to talk with you? Well we we missed you. Talked in a while and the world has changed in the last couple of weeks in this virus. Is it being played up by the cable? Companies and the networks or is it real quick. What's how do you see it from the forty-one thousand foot level? Well I think first of all the way that Chinese dictatorship handled it maximize people's fears because nobody trusted their information and apparently for the first three or four weeks they were actually punishing the people in Wuhan. Who were telling them that. This is a real problem so I think that created sense of suspicion as a historian. I think this is a very manageable problem in my mind. It is not dramatically more dangerous than the flu. If you're healthy It'll be like catching a cold For older people already have some other condition. I think that's where the biggest fatality rate is occurring and it looks like for example The people who are nursing homes had a very high mortality rate but overall worldwide. We're on a very small numbers ninety. Eight percent of the deaths have been in China. We have legitimate concerns of any time you get a brand new virus. You have to pay attention because you don't know what it's GonNa Mutate into. You don't know how much it could spread. But I thought the Center for Disease Control. This week was way too strong and what they said in the way they said it. I. I don't think at this moment that it's a crisis. I actually think the economic repercussions of the way. The Chinese government has reacted where they've quarantined entire cities and think about five ten fifteen million people Being told you can't leave your town Factories have closed down. Production is dramatically. Cut The reason that affects us is fair number of spare parts and other things come from China and right now auto companies for example Even even coca-cola which one of its major sweetness from China maybe face with a supply chain problem and I think that's going to lead people to scratch their head and begin to think about maybe moving a lot of their supply chain back home. You may see in sourcing. Replace outsourcing is the the big topic the next couple of years you gotta pay attention to it. It's significant but it's a long way right now from the crisis. Now I agree with you. One hundred percent because if I was a CEO of a worldwide company. I certainly have multiple sources. Not just one country. And you don't want to be put out of business by just one country. Washington why are the Democrats Republicans arguing trump put out two and a half billion dollars immediate money off towards the virus and Chuck? Schumer says we should be eight billion. These guys can argue forever but everything yes I think. Democrats wake up every morning and they know two things the hey donald trump and they wanna give away as much as they can. Those are the only two things they know and so whatever. Trump does trumpet trumpet. Set up eight billion Schumer. Be saying you know. It should have been sixteen. It's just it's amazing to watch it but it is where we are and anybody who watched the South Carolina. Primary debate knows that these people are are almost melting down and I I wrote a newsletter this week that through the contrast between trump in India with one hundred and twenty thousand people filling the largest stadium in the country And these people behaving like seventh graders yelling at each other breaking in each other. I thought that was a big hit to the Democratic Party Childish and how bad their candidates who are in Charleston at the debate so huge contrast between the president and the first lady who are doing wonderful job Malania were a Liberal Democrat. Right now she would be rivaling. Jackie Kennedy in the magazine covers etc. But because she's you know Mrs Donald Trump All of the the women's publications are afraid to give her the kind of credit. She's worth but she's does. I think an amazing job overseas. We've got Super Tuesday coming up in a few days any Any gut feeling well. I think what people don't realize yet and frankly. I can't do the smarter than me about math so you may be able to do this. The way the Democratic Party rules are there very different than the Republicans the Republicans had a deal. Where after a certain date in March everything winter take off. See if you got thirty five percent that you came in first you get all the delegates. The Democrats have a proportional representation. So Yeah Thirty. Five percent of the vote. Theoretically you should get thirty five percent of delegates but they have a twist to it that makes it really complicated and that is if you get less than fifteen percent your votes disappear so you can have Bernie Sanders in theory at say thirty five percent and everybody else at fourteen and he would get one hundred percent of the delegates. I don't know if that makes sense it. It's IT'S A it's a weird twist and so my my hunch is that the sanders is going to end up on Super Tuesday with a lot more delegates than people expect. Hillary looks like he's going out and attacking set a sanders and Does that go back to that original meeting that Bloomberg had would hillary you pick no I. I think that Hillary and bill who's also been saying things I think what's happening is. Democrats are beginning to wake up and realize they could actually have sanders as the nominee and if they have an avowed democratic socialist as the nominee they could easily lose the house of Blues. Three or four seats in the Senate. There may be a nightmare. And I think that it's only now beginning to sink in. How real this is. There is a report which may or may not be accurate things. I've been looking at carefully. That Biden soon as a little better. The debate given I may have heard Sanders a little bit but if sanders continues momentum you're GONNA see every traditional Democrat assault him because they're not only worried about him losing. They're worried about him. Losing in a way which finds the Democratic Party And and cost them the house and the idea Kevin McCarthy. The Republican leader replacing Pelosi just terrifies Democrats. They ended up next year with trump elected And with Speaker McCarthy in with majority leader Mitch McConnell in the Senate I think the Democrats just don't well know what to do with themselves. President trump made a visit last week to India in the overall sense things worldwide. How SIGNIFICANT IS INDIA TO The world economy or to the United States economy. Well India is actually passing China as the largest country in the world so it's by definition a big player it has a As a country that huge extremes between very poor people who live on fun on small plots out in rural India and very very wealthy Indians They have One of the things that made Prime Minister Mody so successful was that when he was the governor of the state of Asia out he really built a very powerful entrepreneurial high tech society and that part of India now is very competitive and very modern. Because they're so big in terms of population They're they're a player. We hear a lot about because they frankly are the counterbalance to China in the Indian Ocean. we think it's very important for us to be their ally and I think it was very interesting. Very typical trump is a businessman that he comes back home with a three billion dollar contract for helicopters And every time he goes somewhere he's picking up another con another contractor to so he's he's sort of becoming America's best salesman in terms of job creation. And that's good years where you we do need a salesman once in a while. Speaking Gingrich. I understand another book about a month. Yeah we burnside March show. In fact I'll be in New York and hope to see you and be with you It's called shake down It is about a a Russian Iranian plots to use a submarine to set off a nuclear weapon underwater near Washington and Baltimore to create as soon. Nami is actually based on studies that both the US and the Russians did during the cold or to see whether it was feasible. And I think people will find fascinating read of just got a great review from Qurqus which is a big Book Review magazine and they. They loved it. They said it's a it's a great read. It's very exciting. Very dynamic so shakedown is the name of it so you can pre-order it at places like Barnes and noble and Amazon and. I'm very proud of it. Is I think people are gonNA think it's really a fun and interesting. Read hand has a lot of insights about both technology and about the Iranians and the Russians. While I look I look forward to you a Speaker Gingrich. Thank you so much for coming on and thank you take care when go back to Italy. I understand that Italy is as a little bit of scares going around. Well they do but my wife's Basset of the Vatican and we owe it to the folks on the embassy team to to be with them and I think everything will work out alright but you know I think. People sobered by and Being Italy They tend to get pretty pretty emotional. Absolutely Speaker Gingrich. Thank you so much for coming on catch roundtable and let's catch up again real soon. All look forward to this round table will be right back..

Payments & Voice with Peter van der Does of Adyen
"Let's move onto the topic of voice payments then I know the idea doesn't handle voice. Payments directly rightly by. Did want to ask you because you're an expert in the whole payments industry. What your thoughts around voice payments are you excited about it in any way? Do you think it helps the potential due to offer some kind of benefit to the ecosystem at the moment. So let's go one step back wide. Do people talk suddenly about a second factor authentication. It's because calls. There's a new European regulation PhD to Behmen Service Directive and that the second version And it says you need to do strong a small education and that means that you cannot just fill out your credit card details and you're done that needs to be a second factor and the second factor or whatever payment method. You use credit cards. What what could he? Second factor be in good B.. A Pin Code. Nick could be your thumb and being recognized by biometrics it could also be a voice right and As it turns out voice is a very exact way to detect. If you really are who you say you are Niger level but also by Interpol by the accent and it's really accurate and it's fight easy because everybody is interested in. How do we make sure to second factories and done in such a way that it doesn't impact version that people don't stop because you need a car reader? Enter cottages. More friction generates code to enter the code. That's way too much. Friction sure voice could be low friction but we wouldn't develop it. We make sure for merchants that if a bank has for example homemaking so you you want to pay with home-banking then it says identify yourself you too high. Despite her sees it's me and then it's authenticated that would be the bank who have the has developed the voice recognition system implemented something and we would make sure for our merchant run smoothly and the interrupt with attraction is is you provide the infrastructure that would pass with indication's arm and will too big theme. There is when is it needed unless mold ask for third authentication engage needed for that transaction. Newt selectively where needed right. I mean in the case of the delivery drivers the example you gave us before you're issuing them with a mobile APP with the virtual card installed on at do they also have to have a pin for the second second factor in that case because they've got the phone always the phone itself. The second factor phone itsel deregulation or not really standard usually. It's the phone is the second factor because you can unlock the phone. And then you can play with it okay. So in that case voice wouldn't necessarily add anything new but that's a user case where you are physically present and online where you have to pay into. Yes it's me. That's a typical user case. Brian Okay have any customers been asking about voice payments on their radar in order to issue a huge theme and we solved for a framework. That is very easy to heartiest do anything And and then there too complained so it gators for all of those ways of second factor. But I haven't seen a bank yet mid it could be there but I myself have never seen a a payment methods which did moment requires voice

Seven summit hosting at his doral resort and mind it's do you think it's a game piss off the media to Piss off Democrats or does he genuinely see anything better to do isn't there stump we needed listen you are you and I have known each other long time and win a giant six white guy says I'm being lynched here understand why it's a little it's a little bit like listen you're not be lynched here you are being held to the standard that we hold every we were supposed to be it I I don't understand like does it not bother you when he says the was that the fake constitution what do you call these phony emoluments clause phony among I mean that we can disagree I've never questioned your commitment to America whether I agreed with it or not but you've never pooped on the constitution as far as I can recall is very important but okay again you won't agree but you have Steve Shariff as chairman of a committee where we're still out this when you go much blame trump is not you don't have to explain him to me I think you're asking for together you have a white man using the term Ching you mentioned Clarence Thomas by last count he's a black man using I think he should have used it ah very politically incorrect most of the early American movies on lynching were about lynching white people the one of the largest lynchings the nineteenth century Italians yes so there is a tradition here is not an automatically ninety percent of the people sitting here you know it may not be a totally black experience but we are kind of the only folks that didn't come out from under the experience that was put on us as you well know Italian folks have you know were allowed in welcome I'm to work in ways that we were not but my point is unique in sacks interest in this country it's not a good those are talent and experience for black folks my point is it wasn't necessary for him to say I was so would you say that his choice of words it's not smart I think he often uses words more clumsily than he should not the question I answered you pretty good now you did a good spirit but what what do you think do you think that's that's the language he should abused look I I I've been comfortable calling it a witch hunt and a kangaroo court and things like that I haven't gone up to that next level oh you're talking about impeachment this is so the thing that is frustrated me the most about the impeachment conversation has been the hypocrisy that you see often times on both sides but in this case I think about you speaker specifically because you were in Nancy's seat you did go down the impeachment road if you were Nancy today and you had a president that did exactly what trump did that was a democrat what would you do first of all I'm sitting here trying to joy and now you want me to be Nancy can tell you this is getting to be a pretty heavy load logically the big differences the first is we had a report from an independent council that said on eleven counts bill was used to work guilty including perjury which was a felony so we're facing the report I think had had speaker Pelosi referred the Ukrainian phone call to a special the council they could do a lot of things second we actually sent Congressman Jim Rogan to New Jersey to interview chairman Peter Odierno who had on the Watergate investigation and Rudeina had a set of rules that were very bipartisan and we brought him back and we implemented exactly what Rosanna did so for example today the White House doesn't it doesn't have a lawyer in these hearings Secretary Pompeo has staff going to a hearing has no lawyer there has no idea what settings I don't think he would do similar to what Nancy's do because what she's doing hey she has she has no referral that says he's guilty of anything be she's not allowed she's not falling news her she has no rules here which are fair which allow the person being accused to to face Q. U. Power though right that talk on the phone call you you would actually go back and read because they knew this is GonNa come up I reread the exact transcript yeah those punishment and I don't think it's an abuse of power then what is because if when I think about the president's role if you all born president you ask them to investigate your opponent and the President rate and look into the DNC surface. No I'm actually curious power than what is what is is exactly what Hillary campaign quick quick quick notice the difference the Clinton campaign paid to create a dossier can hillary did Y'all I've tried her beat her she's not the president the manning's president broke the law circle back to hold on I'm sorry did you hold on right back with more Cameron Douglas his father a star his grandfather a legend but his life so much pain and suffering now tomorrow on the view Cameron Douglas shares his emotional journey then Thursday mike cool douglas his reality of almost losing a sun eater view you just can't miss this week still ahead Norton on writing directing producing and starring in his new movie motherless Brooklyn swagger that from a number of people so explain where you're coming from and not argument I went back before the show and reread the actual conversation he's asking the brand new reform president to find out what is the truth cannot be a crime to try to find the truth sure you didn't ask how can we crime to find the Italian there are certain tribunals that you can go to their investigators that you can go to you can go to your FBI but you really can't go to a foreign government as the president to seek the truth because they are not your investigative tool and speaker you know that in the in the conversation he said I'm going to have the attorney general call you and work with you yes the attorney general should also not be working with a foreign government to invest gate a political opponent it's not invested a political opponent investigating an allegation of corruption he would no no there's no guarantee news we'll spend announce your candidate and then say therefore it can't be investigated well he did get it anyway but I might get in this country by the right officials the right way and crystals in this country and by British secret agent and by a whole series of people in Europe I mean the whole effort to smear him was a multinational delivered less okay so joyous during a cabinet meeting yesterday you know who's he's not happy about having to pull out of hosting the g seven at his Miami resort even if it does violate the constitution here's why many other president there weren't too many really rich presidents but there were few they ran their business hey Obama omitted for a book is at running a business I'm sure he didn't even discuss while he was President George Washington was actually considered a very very rich man at the time but they ran their businesses. George Washington they say and to desks had a presidential desk going to business I don't think you people with this phony emoluments laws and by the way I would say that it's cost be anywhere from two to five billion dollars to be president you know why put you know that's why they say when you take this job you kind else loose until you leave the job that's the everyone has done this now I don't know about Obama's book but I know that made the deal after he left the White House so stop bringing up Obama and you're saying it's true George one two desks I don't know I it Washington run Mount Vernon while he was commanding general what year well from seventeen seventy five was the emoluments clause but he also when you don't understand about the president this was just a dumb idea I mean don't try to the idea the idea that you could say oh hi we're going to have a meeting of seven major countries on my golf course yes and not have everybody else in the country.
"newt" Discussed on Newt's World
"One of the films which was absolutely vital to weigh rowing up in my childhood was main efficency seven which was a film based on the Great Japanese Film Seven Samurai by Cara Cortisol and seven samurais based on the Japanese legend and then translated into the modern American West as a morality tale a tale about a little village which is being preyed upon by bad guys and these guys were sort of amoral don't they don't think of themselves as out their moral crusade but they do what they do because because of who they are and watching the way that foam comes together it is truly a remarkable film and I think that it showed when you have a great director and you have great right cashed like a your Brenner Steve McQueen then you have Elmer Bernstein's remarkable score and you had a remarkably good script. The first scene is the bad guys is in the Mexican village proving really bad they are in the Mexican villagers deciding. They have to go in and buy guns and try to defend themselves. Second Atkinson is in this border town and the corset salesman is traveling through offered to put up some money to bury a guy who is laying on the sidewalk and the opening part of that is the undertaker explaining. You can't bury them because there's an element in town that doesn't believe that you should have an Indian up in boot. Hill Oh and that whole conversation which first of all at the time that the magnificent seven came out was a very interesting step towards breaking down the assumptions about being prejudiced if you watch it and think of in the context of that era it's really making an interesting statement. The guy says look I. I want help because the great line which I've never forgotten where he says you know he's not turning into any knows gay. I mean the guys laying there dead and the guy says well. I want to be choice on my driver's laughed at which point Yul Brunner one at one best single scenes he overshot just says Oh hell that's all you need and the scene a Brenner with the music in the background walking across this dirt street to get up in the hearse. Steve McQueen returns to the stage coach. Guy Says can I borrow your shotgun and he says yes. I want to see this so queen goes over the first year. You're not quite sure and you can tell the Brenner is not quite shares. He coming over to stop him or helping and he gets up there. Brenner turns and says who Rode Shotgun and hearst before and and he said no he said you know I don't mind going up. I just put a make sure come back down and horace that seem as marvelous four or five five minutes of capturing a whole range of attitudes ideas stories language all in this one little segment as the sort of the thing that just makes me love movies make me want to be able to see them to think about the to encourage my friends to watch them and sometimes the movie works even when you know the doesn't work and then if you watch one of the most famous and revered movies of all. Time Casablanca the fact is Casa Blanca shouldn't work. There are scenes in there that are so hokey. I'm sure at the time they were shooting. They were thinking themselves. This is really Elian. Are we really going to get away with us. Who what you had was early in World War. Two a movie set and by the way a substantial number of the people in Casablanca Ronca are themselves refugees from Nazi Germany so the roles. They're playing a refugees in Casablanca trying to get to America. You're they're playing with an intensity in a sense of reality which is astonishing totally believable but the script talk on some occasions is a little the on goofy including at the very end when Humphrey bogart announces that they're gonNA walk across the desert from Casablanca Salunke to the car which would be crossing the entire Sahara. He turns any says Louis. This is the beginning of a great friendship well. It's hokey line. It's a line that shouldn't work work but in the context of the total impact of that movie it works amazingly well and that's why Casa Blanca I suspect is one of the five or six most frequently revived movies in terms of people just randomly watching it and I noticed that for example airplanes when you have a section called classics it almost almost always is in that section now for totally different standpoint you almost always having the same section breakfast at Tiffany's which is one of my favorite movies partly Harley because Audrey Hepburn is just so astonishing she's beautiful. She's you had actress clustered. I recently we were flying home together and we decided that we would watch Roman holiday which I had seen many years ago but I basically I really had forgotten much of it. I recommended very highly. It's the movie which introduces and really makes her a star and you're looking at this very young very new actress with Gregory Peck and interestingly she gets equal billing with with pack and the reason is he's. He turned away and Wyler who was the producer director and he said look she's going to be such a big star that I will look stupid if I take top billing and we don't have equal billing which is both generous and pecks side and also accurate because she he won on our very first big movie. She won an Academy Award for best actress. See what I can part about movies is the director has the option of telling you the Director Story Story and when you watch Roman holiday it's an unfolding of an interesting story that all is about to human beings and a concept coming out of world war which was very big in that and that is the concept of duty and Audrey Hepburn is a princess. She's tired of being a princess. She has one Hyundai where she hides and she's in Rome and she is wandering around with pack. Pack is actually a little bit of a scoundrel. He is a reporter and he is kind of courting her because he wants the a big story about the princess and of course he falls in love with her so he can't do the story so it's a little bit of hockey stick if you will but it works and you watch this listen you ask the two of them play off each other and you watching great actors of their generation and with William Wyler you're watching one of the great directors and Producers Lead Generation. There's there's a certain travelogue quality to it as they wander around on a VESPA and ride around the city together and so I just recommended commended you both because it's a great introduction to Audrey Hepburn Sa- great introduction to Rome in one of its more interesting ways and it's a significant part of movie history and I think movie history really matters when we come back how discuss what the movies teach us about good and evil.

"The way you think you see it. It's what we put on the screen. The stuntman is a marvellous small film that really opens up aspects of movie making that I think are just absolutely terrific and give you a slightly better feeling for how the movies worked now. I'm also I think because I'm a historian by we're training so all the way back to Thomas Edison invention to the modern motion picture the early years when they're silent films than their talkies but they're still black and white and then suddenly they have technicolor in the modern era and you watch this evolution of capabilities and you watch the different kinds of people learn how to do different kinds shots different kinds of editing and then you begin to get into the period where you have remarkable composers. It strikes me when when we think about great eight composers and we often think about historically great composers well I would argue the John Williams certainly fits in the League of great composers that his music is astonishingly powerful as somebody who loves westerns. I can tell you that Elmer Bernstein to me that whether it's in the magnificent seven or anyone anyone of twenty five films that he scored how do these guys who are writing the music figure out just as the scene shifts how they're going to make it look different different and how they're gonNa make it somehow make the music fit exactly what's happening. I was very struck years ago reading that that in making high noun one of the things they did ed is they put four beach before they would cut the scene so you began the back of your head. When you heard the beach you knew something was going to happen and they were conditioning you with audio to anticipate what was going to happen in the movie itself high noon which has certain and it's time. I'm one of the great films of that generation. Jim Built this suspense and built this kind of haunting feeling there was Gary Cooper at his very best. There's really quite a remarkable film and of of course you go from very small movies which could be made for almost nothing with a very tiny cast shot in a very specific location sometimes shot on one or two rooms comes to giant films. Ben Hur for example. It's fascinating. I actually saw the nineteen fifties version of Ben Hur at the theater in Washington which was a huge screen with huge sound projection and it was a remarkable experience to see the totality. I Nicholas Rosa's remarkable music but then the way in which Charlton Heston played the lead role the totality of the script then herself course had been an extraordinarily successful national book in the late nineteenth century and had a huge impact as a huge underlying emotional and religious component to Ben Hur that made it one one of the most remarkable films of the nineteen fifties when I go no movie theater or nowadays when I'm on an airplane and I turn on a movie I start with the idea that I don't know what's going to happen and leaning forward and I'm curious and I let the movie teach me so I never have expectations. I never never measure the movie against something but I wanNa know where's the movie going just recently watched Tarantino's film once upon a time in Hollywood which is a remarkable marketable film and frankly carried me to spaces that would never have imagined and both captured the Hollywood of that era and I thought with the Caprio did just an amazing job of really acting a unique role and not a particularly positive role for him and I admired the way in which he did that because I thought that it was very compelling and very powerful Brad pet occupies a space as a charismatic figure. Capita is a great act enormously admire his work but pit has kind of charisma that is Sean. Connery has the kind of charisma that a Clark Gable would've had two generations ago. When you watch the movie it's fascinating to watch just how the interplay and how they occupy hi the Space Tarantino's one of the great modern directors always slightly wacked always doing things that are slightly different but worth watching just because you don't quite know where he's going take you coming up out discuss my five top movies of all time.

"The US must be smuggled out under the nose of a kleptocratic Russian president and a ruthless general of former navy seal and an F B I counterintelligence expert or thrown together to exfiltrated him in preempt a deadly poisonous strike. That's the plot of a new political thriller by former speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich and former Washington Post reporter Peter early with the incredibly timely title, collusion, a novel, and although it's fiction collusion. Raises? Many of the most significant issues facing America in real life. Today is Russia our ally or enemy our American activists susceptible to influence from abroad. And how far will our enemies go to disrupt our politics and weaken the nation today. I dig into those and other pressing questions. With the former speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich discusses why he wanted to include a scene in the book about free speech on college campuses. And how he hopes his book will also serve as a warning to those Americans who suddenly think it's cool to embrace socialism. He explains why it's almost impossible to make up a super villain like Vladimir Putin, his fascination with Putin's deadly penchant for high profile, poisonings and wide. Newt believes Putin doesn't mind taking the blame for them. We talk about his successful for a into fiction writing. And how it's given him a chance to let his imagination run wild about the darker side of Washington terrorist plots and yes collusion, plus he weighs in on President Trump's Russia policy. The mullahs report, which issues will drive the next presidential election. And which democrat could conceivably beat don't Trump in twenty twenty coming up with Newt Gingrich in just a moment. Today. I'm joined by former speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich who with his co author Pete early has written a new political thriller that seems ripped from the headlines, it's titled collusion, a novel, new Gingrich, welcome to the podcast while it's great to be with you. And it is sort of pretty close to the headlines. Even though it's also very different from the headlines will Newt I have to say the title of the book, surely can't be incidence. Were you writing this novel with the Trump Russia investigation in mind, we were although I must confess it. None of us had any idea that we'd be releasing the book almost exactly when the Muller report came out? And of course, the novel is very different the novel involves a Russian effort to poison the US Senate, and is really focused on the reality that there is collusion. There have been the Russians have consistently tried to find Moore. Reckons who would betray their country, and in this particular novel in collusion. We have a an aide in the US Senate who is prepared to help the Russian succeed. So I think it's historically pretty realistic sense of things that could happen in the Russians..
