Daughter of Holocaust Survivor Exposes Similarities to Nazi Science
"What? I'm talking to John stranded doctor Simone gold. Remember them? I am so thrilled that I get to continue the conversation with you both. A couple of things I want to cover. First of all, Simone in your talk that you gave at my friend rob McCoy's church in California. You talked about because you're the daughter of someone who survived the Holocaust about how dramatically similar things happened under the Nazis, how they defined science in a very self serving parochial false way. That really happened. And we kind of tend to act like, oh, that's an outlier. That was the Nazis. So talk about that. Right. So you look back in the past and it all just kind of is amorphous and flows together. But then look at the details. If you look at the actual details and you say, are there perilous in the past that you can draw on reference today? So people say, oh, that couldn't happen. Now, but let's see how it all started. The Nazis, of course, we all know they killed Jews, and they killed homosexuals and they killed gypsies. They killed communists. They killed anyone they could, right? Anyone wasn't pure Aryan in there by their definition. But that was the end point. They're starting point. Was a lot of scientists gave them cover to do the violence and the mayhem that they did. There was specifically the Kaiser Wilhelm institute, which was run by a fellow who actually won the Nobel Prize in medicine, a fellow who was not considered anti semitic not considered a particularly political, was just considered to be all about the science. And he came up with all sorts of status documents and data showing what they wanted to show. Jews were a different race, Jews were inferior, the way their skulls and their noses were in the brain, all this stuff, all this they used anthropologists, they used psychologists. They used psychiatrists. They used medical doctors to prove what they wanted to prove, which is that there's a subhuman race and therefore you could kill this race. Okay, so this is based on, I mean, this is the eugenics movement comes out of that. The abortion movement comes out of that. And ultimately, it flows from Darwin, this idea that, you know what? There's no God. And science shows us that some groups are more evolved and superior to others.

Transgender Youth Population Doubles, Radical Agenda Exposed
"Referencing a study from the UCLA school of law's Williams institute, which indicated that the transsexual youth population doubled over a 5 year period, gabbert stated. This didn't just happen, this is very intentional and it's the consequence of this radical agenda that is being pushed on our kids. Their rejecting the existence of objective reality by rejecting this most fundamental truth of the differences between a biological male and female, Gabbard reference recent findings from the fruit and Drug Administration, which link puberty blocker hormones to brain swelling and vision loss. Just another indication of the extent to which so called gender affirming care is both careless and destructive. Doctor christiane nusslein, the Nobel Prize winning director emeritus at the Max Planck institute of developmental biology. Recently stressed that taking hormones is inherently dangerous, despite the horrific debilitating and potentially deadly side effects highlighted by esteemed scientists, gabbert suggested that hasn't stopped President Biden from going and telling parents that quote affirming your child's identity is one of the most powerful things you can do to keep them safe.

Is Belief in God and Christianity Good?
"I've been focusing so far on Christian apologetics and the question of whether or not belief in God is rational and I now want to pivot to almost a new section of this course of this discussion. And that is the question of whether belief in God belief in Christianity is good. I say this because the chapter I'm going to be focusing on for the next few days is called rethinking the inquisition the exaggerated crimes of religion. So in other words, we're dealing with the argument coming from the skeptics and the atheists and, well, leaving aside the question about whether it's true. Is it good or bad? And of course the atheists go on to argue that Christianity and other religions, all of them, all of them have had a really bad influence in the world. Religion is, if not the source of all evil, certainly the source of many great evils. Here in Steven Weinberg the Nobel Prize winning physicist in his book called facing up, good people will do good things. And bad people will do bad things, but for good people to do bad things that takes religion. Now this is a quotation that when I first read it kind of startled me because in some ways, if true, it is quite damning. It's damning because it's essentially saying that it takes a special kind of evil to corrupt a good person. And to steer and inspire and provoke good people to engage in bad deeds, this is the peculiar record of religion. Again, if true would be disconcerting to say the least.

Jim Hanson Fills in for Dr. G With Special Guest Gordon Chang
"In Seb's chair while he's down at fort Bragg talking to our special operators. But I am actually happy and sad to be joined by Gordon Chang because the fact that he's joining us is a sign that once again, China is doing things that we're doing badly to counter. I want to make sure you follow him on Twitter at Gordon G Chang. And his book the coming collapse of China can not come soon enough. Welcome to the show, Gordon. Thank you so much, Jim. Well, look, I think there's plenty. I want to start off in the less obvious of the two really bad things that happened recently, but China managed to get a deal done between our enemy Iran and our somewhat ally, the Saudis for a rejuvenation of diplomatic ties between those two countries. This is barely two years after the Trump administration managed to get a couple of gulf Arab states to sign deals with the Israelis to increase relations. Have we really flipped that far, the U.S. is no longer a power broker in the Middle East and the Chinese are there too? Yes. Actually, America's Middle East policy under the Trump years was like the best since FDR. But Biden's is clearly the worst ever and we're seeing that because as you mentioned, Saudi Arabia was a firm friend of the United States was supporting our efforts. We had the Abraham accords, which president Trump should have won the Nobel Prize for. What Biden has done is he's reversed all that progress in the matter of a couple of months. He did that by trying to isolate the Saudis and this is not a very good story for the United States. No, and

Lord Conrad Black Unpacks Jimmy Carter's Presidential Legacy
"Back with our regular guests, one of your favorite lord Conrad black a man who has written a veritable library of books, including works on FDR on Nixon on president Trump. As such, lord black, let me ask you, we have the news of just the last day or so that president Carter, age 98, I believe, has been admitted to hospice. He may not be long for this world as a presidential historian. How will the historians of the future look to his presidency? Look, I would always, I would almost like to be as positive, especially with a man who is now clearly in the extreme December of his days. And I think on the positive side, he did produce the Camp David agreement for which I thought he deserved the Nobel Peace Prize for that. I'm glad he got the Nobel Prize for peace eventually, but I thought he deserved it then. In 1978. But I think he I think he suffered from a form of indecision that compromised his. Effectiveness as a leader of the country. He tended this tendency to change direction. And we were going to deploy the neutron weapon and in Western Europe and then it was all agreed to. And then he changed his mind. And he was sending a strong naval squadron into the Indian Ocean and then it turned a 180°. We had an irrational fear of communism, and then after Afghanistan, he had learned a great deal, but communism. These are quotes. And when the energy crisis came upon us, he spoke of a malaise and appeared wearing a cardigan on television and advising people to turn the thermostats down. And he didn't I think he was a good man and a very intelligent man into this very slight degree I know. I know I'm a very interesting man and of course like all politicians are quite a charming person. But as a leader, I think he was not perceived as a strong leader and he was not particularly imaginative. He was studious and diligent and did his best and had his moments and was a good man. But I'm afraid he will not rank as an outstanding president. But

"The environmental sciences. Oceans and ecology aren't covered. Nor are computing robotics and artificial intelligence. So the nobels by failure adequately to acknowledge collaborative and parallel work. Give a misleading impression of how science is done. And these exclusions distort the public perception of what sciences are important. The public and most journalists perceive Nobel winners as towering intellects. Some are, but others, even among those who have made undeniably apocalypse and prize worthy advances, have done this serendipitously. To such discoveries are neutron stars and the cosmic microwave background, the afterglow of creation. Louis Pasteur famously averred that fortune favors the prepared mind. These scientists may claim for themselves greater luck, but not greater talent than the average professor. The flaws and gaps in the Nobel Prizes have been partially remedied by philanthropists who have established new prizes. Some promoted with a razzmatazz that matches the nobels, and with even bigger jackpots. Among them, for instance, are the breakthrough prizes set up by the U.S. Russian billionaire Yuri Milner, which have been awarded to groups such as the whole experimental team at CERN, who discovered the Higgs particle. And the $1 million berggruen prize for philosophy given to three widely admired public intellectuals. Martha nussbaum, honora O'Neil, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Overall, major awards now offer a better balance across the map of learning, both sciences and the humanities. Some awards offer substantial prestige, but minimal prize money for others the reverse is the case. It's of course arguable that we should welcome the existence of mega awards that elevate a few intellectuals to a transient celebrity status. But there is a downside. Because of their special prominence and prestige, Nobel winners opinions are sought by the press and accorded disproportionate respect. Even the best scientists and artists generally have narrow expertise. Their views on broader topics carry no special weight. Some of the greatest among them become an embarrassment if given a public platform, it's possible to find a laureate to support almost any cause. However, eccentric, and some exploit their status. So more of us are coming to query the societal benefits of singling out via somewhat arbitrary processes and criteria. Awardees who need neither a morale boost, nor the money, and for work that was generally done many years earlier. So we need more and better ways of encouraging discovery and innovation by the world scientific community. One such example is challenge prizes, which don't reward past success, but incentivize future efforts to tackle an important problem. The most prominent present day exemplars of these are the X

"nobel prize" Discussed on TIME's Top Stories
"It's not like sporting contests when the winner is usually clear. Every October sees the awards of scientific Oscars. The Nobel Prizes outsiders might guess that in these cases objectivity should reign and the choice of winners should be as clear cut as in athletics. But that's not the reality. This year, the Nobel Prizes went to a total of 7 scientists. Each rewarded for sustained efforts on a fundamental challenge. But in some years, the awards trigger controversy and resentment. Unlike Oscar winners, however, the Nobel laureates generally aren't well known personalities, and their achievements are often arcane. So debate on their worthiness takes place within the specialist community and only rarely percolates to his wide a public as awards in the arts often do. It's quite easy to agree on what scientific advances in any particular field of science are important, though there may, of course, be dissent about the relative status of different fields. But what's not so easy is to apportion credit for a discovery or invention. An artist's creations may be ephemeral, but their usually individual. If they hadn't created a particular artwork or performance, nobody else would have done so. But in science, if a didn't make a specific advance, then sooner or later, and usually sooner, B would have done so. Moreover, no scientists achievements are really solo any more than a goal scorer's triumph in soccer is independent of the other players on the field. And the manager off the field too. Each advance builds on the work of others and is very often a team effort. The Nobel committee's refusal to make an award to more than three people has led to manifest injustices and given a misleading impression of how science actually advances through the cooperation of a large group.

"nobel prize" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Which a Nobel Prize was awarded. So Lisa, thank you so much for being with us. Now, first of all, you gotta be gentle with me here. I read Walter isaacson's book about CRISPR, but that's about all I know about this. But explain why you think there may be a major development right now in CRISPR technology. Right. Well, this week, the first patient was dosed with a drug that's a one time shot that could permanently lower their cholesterol. The person who received this drug has a type of genetic high cholesterol called familial hypercholesterolemia, which actually affects about 31 million people around the world. And really increases their risk for heart attacks. And so what's exciting is that we've thought of CRISPR as being something that we typically are going to try and people with really rare diseases. But this is the first time we're seeing CRISPR being tried for something that's a common disease, eventually maybe one day if everything works out just right, we would all get a shot that would keep our cholesterol permanently low. So they've administered it. When are we going to know whether it works? Right. So the first swath of data that we'll see won't be until next year, this trial is small. It's 40 people. And what we're going to look for with that data is how low the cholesterol was lowered, how long it lasted and how safe it was because, of course, with all of these new gene editing trials, we want to understand if there's any anything happening that we wouldn't expect to happen if we really want to make sure that only the part of the gene that we are targeting with the drug is being edited. Lisa, how do you even know you have the susceptibility? You said there's 31 million people, I think, around the world. How do you know are these people that just have really high cholesterol and then they do genetic tests to figure if they're prone to this? That's right. This is a genetic type of high cholesterol. And you know, I think people start showing high cholesterol really young and having heart attacks younger than others. But we know that that's also something that's reversible. And so, you know, I think the first phase would be if this drug works in the that's a big if. And we've got a few years to get there. But if this drug works, and those people, then that helps bring down rates of heart attack and heart disease for those, but then later, you know, they want to test it in people who might just have kind of your garden variety high cholesterol and prevents heart disease in those folks. What are the risks here? One more risk because it just doesn't work, but are there other risks and things something may go haywire? I mean, I think the thing most people are looking for in data for these new CRISPR drugs is off target. It was called off target editing. So we think of CRISPR as being really precise. It makes a cut in the genome actually. This kind doesn't make a cut in the genome it swaps out letters without doing that. But yeah, somebody should just go read this account because I understand it. This is actually even more precise than the one that snips it out, right? This is actually just replaces a letter. That's right. You're just replacing a letter, but still we want to make sure that it's not replacing letters in places where it shouldn't. And the company did FDA asset company do a lot of background work to show that at least in animals, at least in lab cells that these off target effects weren't happening. But we're going to have to look for that in humans and make sure that's true. And we're going to have to look for that over time in humans because always with CRISPR, there's this risk that if you made a lot of these off target cuts, it could cause things like cancer, long term. We haven't seen that yet, so I just want to be clear about that. But that's something that people are really watching closely. So this is a heart disease issue with high cholesterol. What other diseases in success could this CRISPR technology be used to address? Right now, you know, I still think that it's very much in the realm of rare diseases. The reason this drug can go after heart disease is because cholesterol is made in the liver. And so rate is very easy to deliver these drugs to the liver. It's very hard to get them any place else. And so people will be looking at opportunities and other types of liver diseases. That's what we're already seeing with other CRISPR drugs. We are seeing some people who are taking people's cells outside of their body and editing them. That's a little more intense and makes it hard to give to everybody. But there is an effort that's ongoing using kind of donated cells that are edited outside the body to treat type one diabetes. And so that trial just started this year. I was going to ask about the pancreas and type one diabetes have a daughter who has type one diabetes. Finally, how expensive is this? Is this going to be affordable? Yeah, that's a good question. I mean, that is going to be the challenge, right The way that these CRISPR drugs are delivered, this particular CRISPR drug is the same. These lipid bubbles that we use to deliver our COVID vaccine. So that exists. We know that it can be made at scale cheaply, but still we're looking at a one time treatment that would replace lifetime of statin lowering drugs. I think what I've heard is somewhere between 50,200 thousand for this type of drug is the estimate for other drugs it could be much more expensive for rare diseases like sickle cell where someone has to go through a transplant in order to get their cells CRISPR. Yeah, so how big could this be? Just briefly here at the end, could we have another Tesla Google on our hands with verb technologies? Is this one? But could we have that kind of a size of success commercially? Well, I mean, if it works, it could be big because they're going to need some help probably marketing a drug that for this many people is my guess. But you know, I would just caution that we're still a few years off. Yeah, okay. But it's still pretty exciting. Thank you so much as a great column. Lisa Jarvis has on the Bloomberg, you

We're all the time here talking about different issues on the Doug Collins podcast from politics to life to every day. And this one is one I've been excited about for years and as someone who has looked into it, look at how stem cells, the usage of them and also our in our bodies, how we can help make our bodies better. It's been something that I've always wanted to dive into deeper, but also have somebody that can actually be an expert on it in this today is exciting because we have doctor Vincent GM pop on. One of the leading experts in this field. He's been nominated for a Nobel peace, a Nobel Prize Peace Prize probably if he got this all right. But a Nobel Prize on his work, but also many patents, and just in an exciting kind of comment today, we're going to have a great time discussing this. So doctor Jim papa, welcome to the show. My pleasure, Doug, my pleasure. An amazing topic because the model of medicine today is a model that is antique and really can't handle what's going to happen in the immediate future. That is a growth of the aging population on a global basis. You know, today's model of medicine treats symptoms with medications, but not the origin of the diseases we all suffer as we get older. And stem cell therapies are one of the key ways in order to really make a major difference in people's health as we get older, quality of life. And can dramatically drop the cost of healthcare in the future too.

There's a Reason Daniel Horowitz Uses the 'G Word'
"You used the G word early on. You're Jewish, to say genocide is a big deal. Can you elaborate on that? Some people would disagree. Sure. Well, I mean, how many millions of people died from COVID? COVID is not natural. Everyone knows that. It is not. It came from somewhere. That is a genocide. Denial of treatment. Here's the thing. The juxtaposition of the standard for which they use to not just approve, but market, not just market, but coerce. Upon us, the vaccines that Therapeutics that they're using versus the standard they're using not just to block but to almost criminalize doctors off of using things that have four decade long safety profiles, won the Nobel Prize. It listed as WHO essential medicine. At worst, it's just a placebo. Okay, let's say it doesn't work. It certainly couldn't do any harm. They will literally use Remdesivir, which was pulled from a clinical trial for Ebola because of kidney failure failure. They'll use it on people that have kidney disease. And it doesn't work. It doesn't work. WHO recommended against it because they did a large randomized controlled trial. It doesn't work. There's stuff doesn't work. And they block it. You know, when I talk about genocide, let me say this. There's a man named Ralph. He did all the Ivermectin right to try legal cases in the hospital. And he was up against people in the Rochester house systems in court, where they were blocking Ivermectin. The judge ruled in Ralph's favor. They got Ivermectin into the person. And the guy is home today with his kids this day. Even though he was ready on a ventilator, very, very hard to recover from that. This happens several times. Yet the same lawyer for the hospital systems will go up against him again. Why would you possibly do that? He told me they testified in court that they had advised the patient's family to take them off life support. So it's not just the bottom of the 9th inning, game over. And yet they wouldn't allow them to try something that was regarded as one of the safest medications around when they said it was over with, but they'll have no problem using stuff in the ICU that has FDA black box warnings for blood clotting. It's called lumia. It's one of the few drugs they use and Remdesivir. You can't recover from that observation, Charlie. This stuff I've seen and heard in hospitals. It's

The Biden Administration Can't Comprehend That Putin Doesn't Care to Play by Their Rules
"We're in, let's talk about the 100,000 troops on the Ukraine Russian border. Yes, Vladimir Putin has a 100,000 troops there. Amazing how that happens, right? I don't recall this being such an issue during the Trump presidency, but suddenly now, the Democrats are back in power. The guy whose vice president to the guy who allowed the annexing of Crimea don't forget back in 2014, that was under president Obama's leadership, so if I'm bought and I'm like, well, hey, you know, maybe I take a stab at this again and see what happens with this guy. Joe Biden, who barely seems like he's awake. Look stays. One of the problems here and I'm going to get to this a little bit more in just a bit is that you've got blink in Secretary of State blinken who doesn't have a whole lot of going on upstairs. And others within this administration, that don't get that Vladimir Putin doesn't care about being one in their club, right? They think, wow, if you're going to be an actor on the world stage, if you're going to be part of this great society, if you're going to be part of one of the liberal economies in the world, then you kind of need to act by a certain code. Boom doesn't care about the code. You just get one bit. You know, that was actually something that Donald Trump kind of understood. Innately, he got that that Putin was just playing by a different set of rules. And we, as a nation, needed to adapt to that game of chess in some ways, right? Rather than sitting there and never never land thinking that everybody wants to win a Nobel Prize. Well, maybe some leaders don't actually care about that. Maybe they're just going to do what is in their interest, which in this case, lateral Putin sees as having more control over Ukraine. He doesn't want NATO right there. You know, at his back door on his frontier, it would be like us, you know, having to deal with China. Right there on the Canadian border, we wouldn't like that, right? You understand that so you have to think about it at least from that perspective

"Job for twenty three years. This is according to a new zealand based news outlet called stuff like stuff dot co. The this guy's name is jack back in bury his contract called for him to quote provide acts of wizardry and other wizard like services as part of promotional work for the city of christchurch Wizard jackie and make it a cool sixteen grand a year Which is i. My sources told me. That's a pretty good rate and the wizard in community Fired or not. Jack says he's going to keep showing up at the christ church art center talking with tourists. He sort of a tourist attraction he said quote. They will have to kill me to stop me. I don't like being canceled. Why did they can't chicken the wizard i think. It just didn't seem like the path they wanted to go tourism wise so he's sort of a interesting duck According to this another article stuff from two thousand thirteen this guy. I showed up in christ church and he thinks of himself as living performance art. And so this in the mid seventies he first got attention but he got a wizard school. They're like harry potter or unclear unclear. What his pedigree as he he in the mid seventy he publicly casts a spell to quote vine the bowels of an efficient assistant clerk and the guy had to do a news conference to clarify things. Just kind of move in okay. That he wasn't wasn't bottled up. We could kind of merge these stories because casting a spell on ted cruz. That who lead him to not be able to have a bowel movement could be an interesting He's already given off real constipated. Apparently another city council member had to publicly testified that his head had shrunk after the wizard outs misspelled a shrink. It used to do big public debates with someone just referred to as the bible lady He refused to get a Driver's license passport or social security number and the wizard wrote a manifesto called Mine cop all right now. The the wizards game will problematic. I went to the wizards website. This is it here. it's like a wizard. It's just a fucking weirdo. He's got a bunch of podcast. People can't see but they website has like that. Kind of scroll color to it like a yellowish tint with like the wizard ish handwriting and very good beard. Yeah and you required for wizards so if you wanna listen to his podcast you have to. You have to click on some like weird dropbox. And i just wasn't like don't give the wizard entry point you've got. Some pegasus suddenly won't be have a bowel movement. Wizard if you're listening would be. Could you do a spell and ted cruz. I like re could solve a lot of problems with the good wizard here. I'm just saying so if he has the goods he's at work. There's plenty of spells that we could use over here. I mean i will say like the like. I want to spend more time in new zealand. I was once in. It is the kind of place where you might come upon a wizard you know like. You're you're like rolling green hills and you're like ancient landscapes and keys like a nightmare went out and found those kiwi birds and stuff like i mean they should own it. They should just kind of go with the wizard. They film all those. Like elvin movies there. The lord jackson like all peter jackson. Qe and like he. He built like the all the sets were on his land like he owns like this land. I think where they made all the lord of the rings movies. There's a lot of wizardry. I was taking place on the shores. I wondered if they were tied together. This wizard and the those movies but it sounds like he just came out of some sort of counterculture revolution the sixties in australia. So they yeah. I mean i look. There was like weird stuff. Gone in the sixties here in australia new zealand. Golly knows There is a huge tourism like lord of the rings kind of tourism boom targeted Y when i was there. I was at this dinner with peter jackson. He's talking like that you could. I think you could go and see like where the you know. Some movies were and but pilgrimages were made I mean these were like i like those moves by some once in cable and your watch twenty minutes like deeply important some people. Oh yeah So i i'd say own it to stick with the wizard thing maybe make another lord of the rings movie. Maybe need in the trilogy to bring it back you know. Yeah or just. Switch them into the harry potter mode you know making make them the new Muggle hating that guy. I would say harry potter world once with hannah. My wife And in two friends and took like hours to get there on the lines. Were just ungodly awful. There's one cool ride. We went on it. Everyone by me got super seasick from all the motion and then we had to leave and then we then. We forgot parker. It was a nightmare. Yeah i mean it's funny that you like you can like people can Be condescending about this right when you'd see the people at like the harry potter movie openings. In they're like wearing like you know hats and face paint. I read all his books. Great here's the thing about it like if you think of the more commonly accepted forms of behavior. What's we're right. We're going to like a movie dressed like a character in the movie or like what you and i did in college going to a parking lot like shotgun. Seventeen years vomiting on yourself and then watching a college football game. I mean hey man like its own again. Different people can do whatever the fuck they want totally. This guy wants to be wizard. Like why not. I thought you were gonna say what's weirder Going to carry potter world and dressing up like a wizard or like going to an obama or trump rally and get five hours early and standing in the freezing cold here political speech kinda crazy. What's crazier is like. You know because. I know you've had to do this. I did it once the political something awful. That's never felt worse about myself. Like freaking out because they saw some some pundit like some asshole like us you know like oh my god over there look it's you know howard fine men. you was integrion room in tommy. Laron walked in with a camera crew following her. And i was like i fucking hate. You can't do this Whoa i forgot to mention. Barack obama is going to Glasgow yeah for this time. Because i haven't hitching right. I will be at an international summit. What are you going to do. We're going to hang out like no pressure on us. That's g. twenty with you know. See like lamb. You know. Like i. I i mean i think you'll you know he'll give a speech and he'll meet with young activists and young people working climate and that's the main thing i think he wants to kind of be this person who can both like speak to leaders and speak to like where we are in the climate fight but also try to like you know Be able to speak younger. People encourage them to keep putting pressure on the leader But yeah it'd be very in the trump years. It wasn't really an option. Yeah obama's show up right but this one it's like it's also like it's an all hands on deck thing right every should go with like a platform on this kind of stuff Should go and i think it's you know. This is the first kind of summit like this bomb. Gandhi since us president and i think that's a sign that he feels a lot of pride and paris and this is obviously like the update to that but also like the. This is an issue. He's gonna be involved in going forward. Yes we all should be. He's got kids. We're all pretty nervous about this instrumental. Thanks joe manchin Hopefully they'll get something done. There's all these weird reports and it'll be like not what needs to get done but it'll be much better with more things and you just got to keep pushing keep fighting okay..

General now has about a month to decide whether to pursue charges. It'll go into the congress if he does all. This seems highly unlikely but tough. Tough news day for bolsonaro. I mean here's the thing like brazil's back and forth where you basically like you end up fighting your political opponents you know Usually through corruption charges now Bolsonaro is like a big enough astle. That i wouldn't be shocked if he literally like set out loud or like even even wrote an email like let's let people die community economy going herd immunity like. That's there's a party new. It's kind of like trump flirted with it well and there's a part of me that's kind of like you know what people on the left should be trying different shit like like dan. Ilic like taking out billboards with kangaroos or there are some fires one way of doing it and charging bulletin murders another way and maybe the that kangaroo billboards is like a better more sustainable preference strokes different folks. While you're saying yeah. I mean so i i you know the particularities of the case against two and i. It's probably not the most stabilizing way out the best ways to just beat him at the polls and hold the center when he tries to over the election But people out there thinking you know got our differences different saharan gerald primary.

Establish rebel ivermectin on it. Be better All right enough of the serious stuff. And i need you to put on your politics world. Royal correspondent hat for just a moment. Please because there was a report in vanity fair. Let it be known the bennis switching hats there. We go This report in vanity fair said the queen of england has been advised to give up her evening. Martini issue prepares for her busy fall schedule. She reportedly enjoys a drink. Most evenings her go to as a dry martini at dinner. She likes sweet wine The piece quotes her late cousin. Saying that the queen had been known to drink a glass of champagne before bed Apparently who wants reported that she drank four alcohol beverages per day. Here's my question then. Did you know that the queen went this heart. No way i could. Four drinks ninety-five completely aware that the queen went this hard. That's an actual bomb. Used to say like the the lunches with them like you have to launch with them at one of their you know. I think it was windsor. Palace and philps just crushing beers at the lunch.

Men's queen like why mess with the now. You know like. I just like a dry martini. Feels like what the queen should be having every afternoon. doctor. I mean watching from afar. It seems like that's worked for her. No don't live to ninety five so she's already it's like gravy. She's been playing with house money for a while. Like give the woman her corgis and her martinez and her movies as we talked about. You think that if you're slamming drinks with the queen at buckingham palace that they just like run down to the basement and dust off like a nineteen sixty two like chateau nifty pop the rothschild to some other fancy thing. So that's why. Obama told me the story because you so impressive phillips. Jim crack a beer. You know sky's get out of the shutdown to bob psych. Pop you know. I think they had like sherry to which is so british sherri sherri but But yeah the queen should be able to have a martini. Come on yeah. Look if you're listening your majesty.

He's talking too far right nationalist spain this week. He is pissed off. Good people of australia So here's the backstory. Ben crews went on twitter to declare that australia's northern territory That they're covert vaccine mandate was tyranny and disgraceful and sat those other word to use the region's chief minister. Michael gunner responded with a barrage of statistics about how much better his territory fared from covert in texas. The one staff that tells the entire story is seventy thousand. Kobe deaths in texas zero in the northern territory. There you go Gunner said quote. We don't need your lectures. Thanks mate you know nothing about us and if you stand against lifesaving vaccine the new shares don't stand with australia i love texas. Go longhorns but when it comes to kobe. I'm glad we're nothing like you so bad. It's been a tough couple years. You know. I think like. I've never felt quite as isolated as i do from the rest of the world. But it's just so nice to know the ted cruz can bring us together to call him. A douche back is house. My reaction i mean for for governor points out by the way that they also their kids are in school like they. The they're returning one lockdown. They're not locking down because they've looked fucking handle their business. Ted cruz in texas. It's a tough time that we lived through. And you know. A lot of the political news can be upsetting every day. It can be difficult open. Twitter you look around the world so much division and divisiveness look a new cold war brewing china and the fact that there's this thing where billions of people around the world one ted cruz to go fuck off. It's a hopeful thing. It's really something that makes me feel me. Strength makes me feel seeing And present as a human makes me feel dignity every time someone around the world is able to throw ferocious dunk on ted cruz Like i'm i just feel a little less alone and an egg.

"Mean like these are the most difficult issues because whenever you're dealing with people have been taken prisoner hostage like you. There's so little you control you know like it's usually in a place where you don't have a governmental partner in this case it's not 'cause it's an adversary's 'cause there's not really government And you just have to explore every option and what you used at test as do who do we know who may know someone who knows these gangs like you try to find any line in To someone who might have influence over the people holding those people and to leverage that and that you know that can lead you down roads to people that are like fixers and you know not the most pleasant character real criminals i think and then the brig of stepping back the bigger. She's like that. The gangs control pawprints. There needs to be some wholesale look at like the haitian security and policing circumstance that is not the us military going down there but is is rather like how in the past. We've we've tried to help them build up police capacity and then what it builds up and then it always collapses and you know but i you just need some policy informed by haitian voices to look at. What are the policing needs here. That allow you to tip the balance because what ends up happening is like if you're a policeman in haiti and you're making x. Amount of money and then. The gangs are paying y. Amount of money like it becomes a symbol math equation cases. Yeah it is a really really really difficult situation. So we're hope for everyone's sake that yeah get it back Bent so jeff feldman someone we know well worked with Back in the days. Us envoy for the horn of africa is visiting cartoon this week is heading the sudan because the prime minister called the situation there currently the worst most dangerous crisis The country is seen for its nascent. Fragile transition to democracy axios had a good piece on the broader political situation so listeners might remember that omar bashir who's the war criminal slash former president of sudan. He was deposing a coup in two thousand nineteen. A joint military civilian counsel has been in power percents. They have been given the task of leading a transition to democracy in free elections by the end of two thousand twenty three but that transition has been complicated by more democracy by major protests Some protesters are calling for the return to military rule others. Want the transitional government to just fully hand things over to civilians right. Now there's fear that this civilian-military lions at led to beshir's ouster will kind of crumble and unravel. There was a failed coup attempt in late september so the biden administration Tony blinken specifically spoken out in support of the civilian leadership and the democratic transition. But there's this geopolitical wrestling happening where countries like egypt saudi arabia and you a closer ties with the military and there's a question of whether they're gonna throw their support towards the guy we don't like so i'm positive i oversimplified this But it sounds like an incredibly tense moment for sudan in their in their democratic transition. Yeah look i. I think this was always. It was a long transition plan. We talked about this way back when it was agreed to We've been doing this for. Yeah yeah but the the you gotta stick to the plan like i'm you know. I think they're like once you start deviating from like an agreed upon meticulously negotiated civilian-military transition leading to an election. Once you're off the course like then all bets are off and everybody's dried grabs from power you know and in terms of like what we can do beyond like diplomacy in our voice and the rest of it is the saudis emirati. Egyptians like don't wanna see democratic transition succeed. The same thing happened in egypt right where you at street. Protests removed a dictator. That had been there too long and you going to have a transition elections that time. The transition to the elections happen fast and sit and the saudis emirati is just funded coup including paying for people to protest in the streets by the way And so the idea that they would run. The exact same play in sudan was always looking in the backdrop that they might just tell the military at some point. Wait for the right moment at where you can put yourself forward as representative of bull and take back power. That's what's the name of stability or and so if biden team like that's where i'm focusing some efforts like just get in line here like don't at least don't be a spoiler Try to support the program here that results in an election by the way that you have to accept the results of and look. If we're gonna continue. I mean the amount of love showered on the emirati like I just foreign policy now. Us foreign policy twitter. Like you would think we have no closer partner in the world today than the uae. Jimmy blunt about it. Like i i know some. Because of the evacuations from afghanistan they helped with the like maybe they could not like support military takeover in the country. That doesn't want to have that. You know like we gotta be getting something like the weatherwise. Why are we constantly lauding. these the the autocratic junior partner of the saudi saudis. Like i just don't Yeah i noticed that too. Yeah there's a lot of saying a lot of a lot of fancy dinners and georgetown dinners. Here's a story that broke just before we started recording About another shitty autocrat. So this is the new york times They reported that.

"From impending climate disaster like are spending parties are nuts in the fact that this is clearly going to be demagogue. Didn't used to justify. God knows how much money expanded into a missile defense system. That won't even work in stopping chinese and russian nuclear missiles but is just part of like some washington flex for right wing and hawkish politicians and a boondoggle for bunch defense contractors and is stealing from the money we need to pay for things like child tax credits and climate action. The problem you know. I'm with you it. Just it's it's going to be exhausted. It's gonna be exhausting. Let's talk about the real threat so unfortunately you flag some bad news on climate change in in your answer there so joe manchin as apparently told the white house that he does not support the clean electricity payment program. That's the part of the biden economic. Build back better agenda mega bill that would incentivize power companies to switch to clean energy sources and then penalize the utilities that do not so. That really sucks then. We learned that chinese president. Xi jinping is too busy launching not missiles spaceships because he can't come to the cop twenty six climate summit in glasgow scotland so as we talked about briefly last week. She hasn't left china since early. Twenty twenty huge bummer. That he's not gonna show up at this thing in person. Yeah one silver lining here. Ben is that australian prime minister scott morrison is going to attend the climate summit. He made that announcement shortly after friend of the pod. Dan ilic His crowd funded poster in times square went live included kangaroo hopping around while it's ass was burning the shadow the dan. Patrolling your prime minister into going. So i guess been hope springs eternal right like i guess. Congress could get together in the next couple of weeks. Pass them sort of bill she could have a change of heart and decided to go like do you think is worse for the future. The planet biden showing up empty-handed or she not showing up at all. Both of them are not good signals And look at you cover this well on. Psa but it reminded me of in two thousand nine. We went to copenhagen empty-handed because the house has passed a good cap and trade energy. Bill died in the senate because a bunch of like retrograde. Like you know. Joe manchin types. At the time is ben nelson. Wouldn't pass that bill. And that made it ten times harder for us to get other countries in twister arms and get them to make amendments etc etc. So this is a problem. I think it is worth like from the international piece of what you said. Very well on positive america What's always been missing from from american climate action as you know which is generally limited Is often the the piece of the the toolbox it that compels people to stop doing bad things. You know the civic yeah the stick so we do the like clean energy credits and investments in catalyzing industry but when you try to regulate the hell out of these industries like the right wing courts you know could ultimately strike down your comment regulations and so obama basically went as far as you could regulatory wise butting up against the right wing courts and then when you try to pass anything through congress that has a stick you know and this is thrown back in our face. International climate negotiations because the europeans are using some sticks. The idea of taxing carbon is mainstreamed over there and so there's just a limit in terms of how serious america can be seen even if we can cobbled together a bunch of stuff the in say in and rightly say that it adds up to this emissions reduction because it's gonna turbo charge transition to clean energy. There's something missing when you're not willing to show that you're going to punish industries that don't make this move terrified. The coke brothers are gonna pump. You know a couple of hundred billion dollars into some super pac to destroy all efforts to regulate their industries. Yeah and so. I think this could be. I mean and it's not joe biden's fault like but this'll be rough man like he's going to go if he hasn't passed this bill to that that press will be there'll be just terrible. They want to write the story that like his agendas dying at home and you know. He has no juice on the world stage because he can't even get joe mansion. Spend this money and and none of that is joe. Biden's fault but it is going to be like what shapes us g jinping's not even there and then you know then everything. Look in the modi's what's he gonna put on the table and the the risk that this climate summit just Undershoots the runway like from a narrative perspective and a substantive perspective in your continues to build. I think they'll you know there's been a lot of good commitments including china's In terms of not financing coal. so i- people shouldn't lose sight of the forest for the trees year like we're making progress with the commitments that are being made garments in by companies and by philanthropies But yeah there is a problem when you don't have the leader of the world's largest admitted infusion paying and you're not sending the president had states with a A strong climate bills. You should up so frustrating. It's so frustrating so from this is not none of this is the biden team's fault. Because they wanna be doing they wanna have the right ambition here joe mansion being like a stubborn. Whatever thanks joe. Today's positive world is brought to you by dem's spell the dmz if you have investments chances are your.

"He rose to the highest ranks of military in the us government. He broke countless racial barriers. He was someone who is widely respected by his colleagues across political parties. And at one point he was the most popular public figure in america like the early nineties but that reputation and the respect he had or people had for him ultimately kind of cut both ways because powell and his credibility to make the case for the war in iraq and i think many people would argue that his speech the united nations in two thousand three where he walked through the bush administration's deeply flawed or basically entirely wrong case that iraqi weapons of mass destruction was one of the most important moments when it came to selling the invasion to the country to the congress to the world. Powell was republican for for most of his career But in two thousand eight he decided to endorse then. Senator obama over senator mccain during interview on meet the press and in that speech he expressed really prescient concern about the direction. The republican party was headed in especially the selection of sarah palin. Vp in the racist islamophobic birther movement that had already popped up and we were working for obama that i remember that being just an incredibly powerful moment in the campaign. It was a huge boost to us. You know. i think we're on a glide path winning at that point but it was really meaningful He later back to clinton later back. Joe biden he an email that pow elite where he wrote We called trump a quote national disgrace. International pariah was leaked so no confusion about where he stood there. So then what do you think about pals legacy like or what it should be in. How prominent do you think the iraq war is in that epitaph in that conversation. Yeah i mean. Look colin powell. Many ways to me. Like embodies exemplifies like a certain period at the end of the cold war when america was like on top. You know like he's there. He's a pat breakers of the joint chiefs. He's there at the gulf war. Which is kind of the height of america flexing its muscle international. Whatever think about the gulf war like colin powell kind of stood for competence in you know stewardship of like some international Because he he was reliable and credible and had integrity and and look he was a person of character. Like you mentioned the the endorsement like he. He centered the endorsement very interesting way around the the accusations. It'll you know accusations in know in air quotes here. That obama was muslim. And he's like he's not but like the the real answer should be like. Why does it matter if he is so what is so what. And if i want a seven year old kid in this country whose muslim to think they could become president and he talked about a photo of of a gold star. Mother who lost her son At arlington with the grave. So so this is a man of integrity who carried out his jobs very ably and had a moral compass that obviously republican party lacks full. Stop then i think of two moments for me though That are tied to rock and the first is when he made that case before the war you have to keep in mind that that what pal used to be known for something called the powell doctrine which was essentially america should use all the lessons from vietnam informed it and it was that america should only go to war when there's a very clear objective and you go in with overwhelming force and very clear exit strategy you know and so like a rock was none of those things they end after you've exhausted all diplomatic visas. Iraq was none of the things literally that colin powell's four. And you know what he did. Essentially is you know he. He convinced bush to go to the united nations security council resolution which they did to have inspections and then when those inspections weren't finding who happens a mass destruction they call them pals to make the closing argument at the u. n. Right and i'll never forget that. I was working at the woodrow wilson center. At the time. I was twenty four. i think. Very nudity see Maybe twenty five. And i remember watching it and like colin powell was like a an un- allured hero. I mean it's almost hard for younger listeners. Appreciate like this man you know like he had the credibility of patriotism and national security and winning the cold war in the gulf war. I i read it somewhere. He was described as the most distinguished american to never serve as president of the united states. And that was an interesting Description given how many of the former presidents are now. But i thought also kind of apt. Yeah no that's exactly what he was. And and and so when he laid this out and in and holding up like vials of fake anthrax. And like i totally believed you know and sometimes people have asked me. You know people might have noticed every little bit chip on my shoulder the establishment foreign policy. It all started there because to me was like though. They're all lying to me even colin powell. You know And what was kind tragic about. It is i. The second thing i thought about is the most time ever spent in room with colin powell's staffer on single the iraq study group james baker and lee hamilton. Were doing this big. Look at the iraq war and make recommendations about is two thousand six and pal came in to meet with the for over an hour and baker. I remember knew exactly what pal thought was like. So why did you tell your story calling. And he laid out the most withering take down of the run up to the war the decisions around the war the all the mismanagement of the occupation he and it was clearly not revisionist history. These clearly things that he had thought at the time right. So how do you think about that. I mean i. I stopped a bit short of the you know reading some of this. You'd think that colin powell took worn rocky. Didn't and like the realities itself. Only george bush's decision and and we shouldn't lose sight of that. I think it's kind of wrong to say that. Like if look colin powell was the president we wouldn't have done that but you know like it's also reminder that everybody who goes into government. I younger people. I i talked to are going government. One of the questions asked me is like hey..

"Is an economist at Princeton University. And he's been there for a long time. There, he supervised, you guessed it, two of the 2021 Nobel Prize winners. David card and Joshua anger. My first question is, is there like a secret to your supervision? Are you doing something special? That's a very good question. Or the secret is, okay, he has no secret, but with his guidance his students did end up winning the Nobel Prize, which comes with some serious perks. I mean, the three winners are splitting over a $1 million. Plus, they also get to call themselves noble laureates, and, you know, milked that for the rest of their careers, but that's just the cake. For David card at UC Berkeley, there's also the icing. Apparently, you see Berkeley gives free parking to normal laureates. Do you know how they do? Yeah. There's the parking sign, say NL on them. I just learned this. But I also heard this and I like to verify with you, whether it's true or not. Apparently, David Carr does not drive to work. He bikes to work. So yeah, I think he does normally. So the pre parking might not actually be much of a better start doing it. The big problem is I think one of the reasons he writes a bike is because it's so damn hard to park. So what did David actually do to deserve that coveted free parking at Berkeley? The Nobel Prize committee said it gave him the award for, quote, his empirical contributions to labor economics end quote. And in making the announcement, the committee members specifically talked about his pioneering work during natural experiments. Natural experiments, one of the most prominent examples of this is a study David co authored with the late economist Alan Krueger. The paper was written in the early 1990s, and it was called minimum wages and employment a case study of the fast food industry in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Up until then, economists thought about the effects of the minimum wage in the same way they thought about a lot of other subjects, which is mostly in theoretical terms, and standard economic theory said a higher minimum wage kills jobs. David and Ellen wanted to move beyond that standard one O one theory and see how the minimum wage affects jobs in the real world. Now, inspired by the way that researchers in the medical field had credibly shown their cause and effect using randomized experiments. You know, I like randomly dividing people into two groups that are statistically identical. Researchers offer one group, the actual treatment, and the other group gets the placebo. They then compare the outcomes of both groups and there we have it. We have credible evidence about the effects of that treatment. David and Alan dreamed of being able to do this kind of research themselves. But the problem for them and all social scientists really is it's a logistical nightmare if not impossible to divide up large groups of people and conduct social experiments on them. At least for many kinds of policy questions. So when the state of New Jersey raised the minimum wage, David and Allen saw the opportunity for a natural experiment. They were going to approach it as if it were a randomized trial. Fast food restaurants in New Jersey were the treatment group and fast food restaurants just across the state border in eastern Pennsylvania where the control group. What happened was they knew that there was going to be an increase the minimum wage in New Jersey. And before the minimum wage took place, they went out in the field to collect data. So they designed a study of what the effect would be without knowing what the effect would be. Like, that's exactly the way science should operate. You shouldn't look at it exposed and then turn rationalize what you saw..

"So durian, we're talking because a little committee in Sweden made a little announcement yesterday. A little announcement, or the most hotly anticipated date on the economics calendar. Welcome to the royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. And today's press conference about the pricing economic sciences in memory of Nobel. The Nobel committee announced three winners of the prize this year. Joshua ingress Guido embeds and David card. Shortly after the announcement, you see Berkeley hosted an online talk with David card and David thanked a special someone. Or Ashton filter, who was my thesis adviser and early was really instrumental in setting up kind of a revolutionary change in the way economists do research and I've really benefited from the inspiration that he provided. So when we were thinking about who to talk to about the 2021 Nobel Prize in economics, we thought who better than the revolutionary change instigator himself all the ashen felter. So from what I understand you were the supervisor of not one but two of today's winners of the Nobel Prize. Is that true? That is true. There are great students, by the way. The other great students, not hard to believe there. This is the indicator from planet money. I'm Greg ruski and I'm Darren Woods. Today on the show,.

The worst misogyny you've had to deal with a new career. Maybe devi action to that to the paper. On females policymakers. So i was not the subject of mizzou geneva. This woman wear which is whenever. I presented this paper particularly in india but also in other places someone always said aft- iot presented the result. It can't be too because i've sinned this woman. They are just figure head down not really doing the work. And i'm like dude. I just showed you just showed you that. They do different things and that people take notice q. Like listen but the tanks of the misogyny is so strong that people will take their tear e against the the fact that is being presented to them so that that might be the example. That just that.

"In a previous episode. I went over the number of nobel prizes then. Einstein could've one or should have one assuming they gave out posthumous awards. This was a relatively easy exercise. In so far as einstein actually did win a nobel prize and i was able to limit the discussion. Mostly things that did win a nobel prize but einstein. Just get credit for this. Exercise is much more difficult. Isaac newton died in seventeen twenty seven and the first nobel prizes weren't given out till nineteen o one. Moreover the world of science was really different in the seventeenth century compared to what it was in the early twentieth century. Newton was making discoveries in very basic things compared to later discoveries. You wasn't fact picking the low hanging fruit in the world of physics nonetheless. It was newton. That did it. He laid the foundation. Would scientists still being taught today so because this is such a theoretical exercise. I'll define something as nobel prize worthy if it's a discovery that was a significant advance in science. Or if it allowed for significant advancements in science. Because i'm doing this almost three hundred years afternoon staff. I have the benefit of hindsight to see which of his advancements have stood the test of time. Let's start with one of newton's biggest accomplishments in the one which might cause the most controversy in this discussion calculus as i noted in my previous episode on who invented calculus newton certainly invented calculus independently. But he never publicized. The controversy lies in the fact that there is no nobel prize for mathematics. However there have been prizes given out for the development of techniques that allowed science to advance for example the nineteen ninety-three prize in chemistry was given to carry mullah's for development of the pali.
