"Putin is looking to raise his military force by 13% next year, boosting to more than 1.1 million troops. News nations Kelly Meyer reports, western nations believe it's an indicator Russia's planning to continue its military operations in Ukraine for the long haul. I asked White House spokesperson John Kirby earlier this week, what Putin was going to do next. When or how is he going to get out of this war? And he said, if anybody tries to tell you what Putin is going to do next, I would be very skeptical, but he has suffered losses throughout this war. He's trying to increase his troops, but the U.S. and allies are going to continue flooding weapons into the country. Kirby also telling me that the uncertainty of this war is the reason why they are continuing to provide this weaponry. There's several people are recovering from minor bumps and bruises after a ride at New Jersey's 6 flags malfunctioned. Please say a high-speed wooden roller coaster called the el toro, was unloading riders when it suddenly lurched forward, witnesses say the ride was out of control and felt like it hit a massive pothole. The White House is requiring all federally funded research to be made available for free to the public by 2026. The move would end the optional yearlong publication embargo, which allows journals to put research behind paywalls. The White House said these changes will help level the playing field across a highly uneven funding landscape and allow others to build upon primary research studies. Star Trek icon Nichelle Nichols decided back to space one last time. Nicholls started as lieutenant uhura in the original series, the Robin's native died last month at the age of 89.

I'll tell you what. So 888-876-5593 is 88 88 Raleigh. And Linda is enriched in park. Hey, Linda, thanks for calling. Oh, thanks for having me. I wait for a while so I got to get in there because you were talking about the truck of their own highway and everything. I thought I got a call in. All right. I have 5. I have my children songs. Our truckers, they drive 18 rules all over the United States. And both of my 25. Okay. And then I have two sons, one 42, and the other one is 40. And they travel all over the United States with those 18 rules after all year. That's a good job. And then I have one son that's local. So altogether, I got quite a few of my children driving those 18 little trucks, I was saying it took a rich, you know, I'd say I like hearing him on the radio, so I said, well, I'm going to say a rally. It is okay with her to dedicate a song to all the guys throughout 18. I can't think of who made it what they sing, keep on trucking. Keep on trucking. Yeah, yeah. Okay. That's a maybe I could get her to play that and then I had a few other things I want to make sure because I know you had other people. But we also, they were talking about Cook County. I believe in Cook County all my life. I'm 70 now. It's a beautiful place. A lot of things happening cookies, but we are proud people, you know, so we've had some good people came out as I've been a little town called Robin. I don't know if you ever heard of it. Sure. But yeah, key key Palmer. Okay. She was from she was from Robin. She played in some of those movies by trying to think of his name. He played as a lady of fit lady. Oh, okay. I can't think of his name right now. Tara Tara Perry. Okay. He was in a lot of his movies. Keke Palmer. She's from Robbins. And then the lady that just passed away, there was on Star Trek. She was she was from Robin. So we have a lot of children people that came out of Robinson. I remember you mentioned that the deals and Johnny functions. They always around the same area where we live this. We have some great people came out of challenging people came out of rock. But I don't want to keep you for a long time.

She did. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah. Bradley. Yeah, she was a Robins girl. Right. And I think it was one other girl her last name she was amazing. I said, I don't know if her name was Barbara mason. I think Barbara mason was from Pennsylvania from Philadelphia. Okay, what if it was the same person? But there was one girl she made one song and her last name was made from because I remember she used to live on Central Park. And so we had some showing that people that came out of Robbins really, you know, and I'm proud to count it. And they were saying about the force reserve. Of course, it's beautiful. My children they work when they graduated out of high school. It was one of their first jobs working at the proxy head. It was called green lakes. It was called green eggs and they worked their good jobs for kids, but they've grown up now, like I say in the all driving of 18, we'll show some I call them every morning. I asked where are you at now? I talked to one today he was in West Virginia. Another one was in Louisiana and another one was an upstairs Pennsylvania. So they all over the place.

She got a triple degree where she will drive 18 little trucks because of their drivers. Oh, wow. I'm just kidding. I'm just praying for her, because she's no bigger than Athena. She'll be fine. And these days you're tracked with an inch of your DNA. So she'll never be alone, even when it seems like she is. They will always have someone riding along with her. One of her brothers cousin is something. And I wanted to mention one other thing about our good old Cook County. You know that $1 billion lottery? Yes. There was one. Yes, in Kelly. Yes. The young man was from county. And my sons know him personally, because he went to school with them, and he's only 23 years old. Oh man, boy does he have a future?

And they went to the same school that my twins went to. And they know him well, he was nice clean cut guy and he said what he did was he was out and displaying by the airport.

"Biden says the U.S. has killed, I'm in Al zawahiri the leader of Al-Qaeda. Speaking tonight from The White House Biden said the drone strike against Al zawahiri took place in Kabul. He added that no one else died in the strike. None of his family members were hurt and there were no civilian casualties. The president remains in isolation after testing positive for COVID once again. At least 37 people are dead and hundreds more unaccounted for in Kentucky following catastrophic flooding throughout the state, governor Andy beshear said the eastern part of the state is slated to get hit with more storms between tonight and Tuesday morning in light of Kentucky's unprecedented weather Bashir said he's canceling his trip to Israel as he deals with the deadly flooding at home. Flowers now adorn the star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame belonging to the late actress Nichelle Nichols. The groundbreaking African American actress played lieutenant uhura on Star Trek in the 1960s. I'm Brian shook. And I Brian Curtis in Hong Kong. Let's check this hour's top business stories and the markets. Rising U.S. China tensions over Taiwan have cast a pall over Asian markets. House speaker Nancy Pelosi is expected to land in Taiwan later today. The Thai X in Taipei is down almost 2%. The White House has sought to lower the temperature to a degree. The Biden administration has insisted that the trip does not signal a change in U.S. policy. China regards Taiwan as a part of its territory and has promised grave consequences for the visit. I'll get to the markets in detail later. The Hangzhou index is down 2.6%. Apple tap the high grade bond market today. The sale will total 5 and a half $1 billion in coming four parts. We're told the longest portion of the offering is a 40 year security. It could yield around 150 basis points over U.S. treasuries. Apple has some $60 billion in net cash on its balance sheet. But Bloomberg's anurag Rana says Apple still needs to sell bonds to buy back shares. The cost of money is so cheap, it does make sense to moderate and keep it because their net cash is about 60 billion. And they spend about 85 to 90 billion in buying back stock, so they do have to borrow that money. Earlier in the U.S. session, Apple traded down 6 tenths of 1%.

"Shot. It's almost a little uncomfortably long. Like in the way that we're sort of primed in modern audiences to think about like, this is a setup or it's building anticipation, there's an anxiousness to a really long slow kind of pan in on someone's face, like something's about to happen. Nothing happens. And there's a quiet brilliance in that being one of the first shots of one of the first episodes, not the pilot, one of the first episodes of this new science fiction series, and here's an African American woman in 1966 at the controls of the enterprise. She's driving the ship. And nothing like immediately goes wrong. It's such a quiet settled, so self assured moment of television. This is what our show's going to do. Our show is going to present to you a future society where all of the people on this bridge are working together to solve problems and here is a young African American officer who is now driving the enterprise. The flagship of the federation. I don't even think it was at the time. We hadn't really sort of settled all of that science fiction lore at the time. So to me, again, I was watching the original series and even Marie commented like what, why did they linger on that shot for so long? That was sort of an awkward shot. And you're like, would it kind of wasn't for 1966? Or 1966, that was revolutionary. So throughout decades of television and film, Nichelle Nichols has just been a part of my science fiction upbringing. And it's sad to see her pass, but we're left with a canon of a history of footage and storytelling that will far surpass her actual corporeal form on this planet. From snorkel, I remember going to lectures by Gene Roddenberry, those pioneering scenes with the non homogenous cast were fully planned and meant to send a message. Thanks also to Lucille Ball, who underwrote the original series via desilu studios. Again, wagon train on space, but with a multicultural cast, never would have gotten off the ground without some heavy hitters backing it up. Oh, fat produce. We're not gonna comment on the fan dance from Star Trek 5. I'm putting that one on Shatner, 'cause even Shatner is now like, little glimpses of like, I don't know when Star Trek got so political. You were at the beginning of, but that's Shatner. We're not letting Shatner ham up and steal the limelight from remembering an impressive figure in the civil rights movement and in science fiction storytelling. So I would highly recommend everybody watch some early Star Trek. It's cornball, it's amazing and it still holds up today as little sort of bubbles, time capsules of storytelling, and we also get a glimpse of how far we've come, but then how we really haven't strived as far as we probably should have over the 60 years between that show and today. Yeah, gorm lord. Again, we don't realize the gorm lord writes watching the original series for the first time in 2021. It took me several episodes to realize what a big deal she would have been, but it's pretty awesome. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, I feel like that's the right note to go out on. Let's knock out a little housekeeping. We can jump into some of the news block. I really want to save some time at the end. I've really been enjoying having a little bit more sort of questions and people have been asking some great questions, especially with pixel 6 a on the docket today. That kind of conversation as we get into the end. Yeah, let me screen share over, I just want to knock out housekeeping real quick because we had a couple of fun videos last week was a pajama podcast where I didn't really do the whole rundown of like, here are all the videos I made. Still really made a lot of videos. So let me get this up here to screen share it out. We covered the easy, easy quest, triple monitor hub. There was the innocent, 15.6 inch portable oled, this screen is flippin gorgeous. I really enjoyed reviewing this portable monitor. TK and I did a co stream unboxing the pixel 6 a, which was a lot of fun. We streamed the same. So if you caught it on TK's channel, it's the same video. We streamed the same video to both his channel and my channel, but it was also really fun. Getting to do an unboxing and set up with a pal. Normally, I don't love doing unboxing videos because I think they're kind of dull. I also covered just something kind of wacky. This is the jisoo life FA 35 pro neck fan.

"A roast. I'm too fragile. I'm too sensitive to do a roast and they were roasting them as he's saying. I will say his performance was transformative. He really became Elvis. I couldn't personally. Could you do it? I would definitely, first of all, bass knows what he's doing. Sometimes the director, they see something in you that you don't see. So I don't think bass did this just to be a mean person. I think he did it to make his performance better. And when I watched, you know, August, that actual scene, it was great. It was heckled. Oh, I'm a commie. Of course. It makes you feel very vulnerable. It makes you feel, you know, like, for me, if I get heckled, I want to show them. I'm like, I'm cussing everybody out, 'cause I'm like, I'm gonna show you. And it makes you want it, but you know, that's method acting. And method acting, he was trying to put him in a place where he would feel vulnerable. So it wouldn't just be like, oh, we're just acting. And you can see it. So I think he's, he's gonna get an Oscar nomination. I think he does it. There's something wrong because Austin, he really did a great job of Elvis. And we keep showing that pelvis. That part. We'll say there were some iconic things I was looking for in the movie, and if nothing alone, he should just get it for the pelvis shake. Yeah. I'm just gonna give that pelvis a nice Oscar now. Do what you need. Sometimes, you know, especially when you have to carry a whole movie, you know this Rachel, you have to, the director has to do certain things that seem a little extreme, but if it's worth it for the picture and it doesn't really hurt. Do it, okay? Yeah. You know, before we go, I want to give a shout out to an acting legend, Nichelle Nichols. She was a trailblazing actress from the original Star Trek series and movies, and she passed away yesterday at the age of 98. 89, sorry. She was actually her and William Shatner, their characters. He gave the first interracial kiss on television like back in the 60s. And I don't, I think she knew how pivotal hero was, but as a young girl watching her, it was just awesome to see. And I love Star Trek because it was so many different cultures. Yeah. And then they put it together and they show that we as a country could get along and can work together with different cultures and respect. You know, even though we had aliens, you know, you had Scotty, you had her. She's just a phenomenal person. Are you a trekkie? Yes. Clearly. Let me find out. Can we get Lonnie love on Star Trek? Producers are watching. I love it. Stay here with us. Rest in peace. Still ahead, normani puts her foot down. Who she says she needs to read the room. Plus, Priyanka Chopra tells us about her sexy new project and what's it like working with her husband, Nick Jonas. Oh, I want to find out. We'll be right back. You know, have you ever been in an Uber lift and thought, how did I tell my driver to stop talking? Well, normani clearly has, she tweeted, please tell this man, I'm antisocial and don't want to talk the whole damn car ride. Read the room, sir. Read the rooms. Can you relate? Yes. I feel so inclined to engage if someone engages me, but there's often times where I've had Uber drivers give me their business. What do you do for a living and then I share and I try to withhold it and then they give me their business card or they want to connect outside and I'm like, I just wanted to ride down the block. Well you know for it. In the app, you can put, you know, I want silence. And I put it. You know, I put that. Is that an Uber or just left? It's an Uber. I think I've seen it and I haven't. I haven't thought to do it. But it's also feel so, I feel like I have to. And I have a good Uber rating and I'm super proud of it. Thank you. Oh, that's why, you know, but I'm super nice and then I just find myself like, if I'm supposed to be working on an audition or like doing something else in the car, I'd using that time wisely, I will just spend it talking to you. Yeah, you don't want to, you don't want to do that because you want a good Uber rating, but you know, my whole thing is that I think sometimes if you get in a car and they recognize you, then they start talking. It's done. It's like, I don't care if it's in there to stop talking. They see you and they recognize you. I've gotten so many cards. Have you had a selfie request? 'cause I have. All kinds of stuff. Yep. Gotta be something in there like screening about that. That can't be it. Yeah. They don't care. But you select no talking. No, I say no preference. No preference. Sometimes I have a preference for what I don't share it. I'd say no talking and they still talk to me. So do we think that they were suffering? They should not do that. I follow up questions going. What's your follow-up? Do you give a bad rating? Because I'm scared to give a bad rating. You know where we live. Oh. Oh, see, then we could clap back and be like, no, Pete, chatted the whole time.

That's how you got the reins he was able to show the elation -cerned the determination the grit all in ten minutes. I learned everything. I needed to learn about his character in ten minutes.

What i wanted to to to wide so star trek the first one starch again darkness. I can't think what they're starts drinks. Was it star starched thirsty. That's the problem though the problem. They've never been able to hit on the theaters to of what their star wars movies. Even though chris task decade or in the past fifteen years. Who has the better movies. Who has the better quality movies and the problem is you'd have to say star trek but who star trek comes to star trek star trek into darkness star trek beyond which came out in two thousand sixteen. That's the one i mean. If you're able to match us up against the rebooted trilogy for star wars you clearly say it was star trek on a quality basis. But who ends up with dollars. Who ends up little popularity. The thing is there's been no star trek movie. I ever gained over five hundred million dollars worldwide. And that's a problem. I have that they're not able to connect with a large enough audience. So want to hear your thoughts with this and that's the star trek. Ip as a whole grain on television you see that broad base of shows that actually they got the jump on ahead of star wars amanda lawrence because discovery was been a good hit for them. Even though it's never translated on broadcast television it's been a huge hit for it was. Cbs all access and then it is now migrate into paramount. Plus and you see they now added picard and strange new worlds and all these other shows in the star trek universe. It still has a place in our society and in our pop culture. But how big can it actually be. The truth is it has a place. I think it's that they're getting a show on nickelodeon. That's going to be huge. Because what i really feel in my heart hearts that it doesn't resonate with the younger audience again. It doesn't have light. Sabers doesn't have a mystical force. It doesn't have any of that that other shakespearean theater if you will that star wars does possess wars has drama. You know i am your father. You know there's there's drama with star wars.
