"noel" Discussed on The Odd Couple with Chris Broussard & Rob Parker
"Though. Tj so so neural is the well this fascinating story it. How do you really fired up. Because he played in league for ten eleven years. I'm sure you've heard horror stories in the locker room. Hopefully nothing like this happened to you but narrows the well is with an agent called happy. Walters named happy. Walters has a offer for seventy million dollars on the table and rich. Paul according to new orleans the well this is not you know. This is not out there as fact but this is according to a lawsuit orlands. Noel suing rich. Paul agent of lebron james his former agent because seventy million on the table rich rich paul tells him euro one hundred million dollar man. Come with me. Take a qualifying offer. This year will get you a max deal down the road signs for four point one million for one season leave. Seventy million on the table gets banged up the next year and basically what he's claiming. Is that rich. Paul didn't really do anything to help him. That following offseason according to the report you know basically there was no no presentations of offers. During is what it says during the free agency season and after one year contract with dallas expire. Neither paul nor anyone. At clutch boards presented any real proposals to noel in terms of strategies or ideas on how noel might secure a long term contract or even if a significant contract for the following season was on the table. So i wanna talk to you this ad you fired up. Crazy story nerlens. Noel suing his former agent. Because he believes that he caused him tens of millions of dollars. The thing about this erin is. I'm very interested in. How's this going to play out. Because i'm sure that is not the first time this has happened to a player. The problem is not offered at. You have whether he tells you he doesn't guarantee he can get you a one hundred million dollar contract. He assumes you're worth more we can get you more. What is no guarantee. Does he even assume or is he saying to use the dating analogy saying whatever it takes to get you to come home with them if you know what i mean. I mean because that's what it sounds like a certain degree but everybody knows this not just in basketball football base. You make some calls in you. Say i'm representing aaron torres. Now what do you think he's going to be able to get in free agency because we have some offers and then these general managers and whomever start to tell you. Because you're rich. Paul you have a ton of clients that in the future. These gm's in east teams would like to play for their team in so they're going to tell you these things in its tampering and it's not legal but it happens all the time in so i would hope he did that in with him getting injured that year when he took the qualifying offer. Maybe that played a part in to it. I don't know. But i know the agents job is to get you the most money possible with the best fit but ultimately it's up to the player to sail cal turns down or no i won't. I'm just eager to see how this plays out. Because i'm glad new orleans. No well he signed a three year. I believe it was thirty. Two million dollar deal with the knicks this off season. I is that type of money. He should be good but thirty. Two seventy man you that that's a big difference.
"noel" Discussed on Veteran On the Move
"That's it boom standup. Ask your question opportunity. So that leads into step three. Yeah and that is making decisions like the person you want to become. So when bob proctor said he asked me questions about my military service and what i was doing and he's like wow we have a program that i think he would be really great at Give me your contact information. And we'll connect after this. I didn't know what he was offering. I didn't know what it would cost. I didn't know what this meant. I just said yes. He probably thought i was crazy. He's like. I'm just asking her contact information but i was like i'm all in. I already know it well. Long story short. I had the opportunity to get certified in his curriculum. And then i was asked if i wanted to do one on one coaching with him within three months. This is crazy I was earning six figures in hawaii at that time. I spent that much on my personal development. My training and my one on one coaching with him. Yup and that was freaking scary. Because i've never invested in myself like that but i was making decisions like not the person that was earning the income that i was earning then. Not as chief master sergeant lara noel. But as the e of my company laura noel who invest in herself and her mindset and in her education and her business processes. I did that and within less than a year. I tripled my income as any nine living in hawaii. I got it back. And then some and i was giving in a big way that i crafted who i wanted to be. And even though my physical a bank account and my income didn't support that. I made that decision and then the income followed. Why is it most people look at the income. I instead of acting like making the decisions like the person yo you wanna become. We've been conditioned to do that though. We've been conditioned even as little kids. Like mom i want that. Oh yeah what are you going to get it. We've been conditioned to set goals like that. We we will set a goal only usually if we can see all the steps and how we can get it and then we set it. We've been conditioned to believe that's how you set goals but if we think like that we can only take us as far as our level of awareness will take us and we are made of energy. We are energy and body. So if you are a scientist you would say. There's a power flowing through us. There's enough power in our pinky that could light up a couple of city blocks. You can look at it or a picture is curly in photography the energy. That's a glistening beam of light that we're energy were made up of energy if you're a theologian you would say that spirit flowing for us so we have no idea what we're capable of doing energy in a body and we only use a small amount of our brain power and our energy so we can only go. As far as our level of know-how will take us and we think when we're setting goals were were doing were growing. But we're basing those goals on what we've done in the past but we really have to open ourselves up to a different way of thinking and step into the unknown. Get clear on who we want to be. And then breakthrough that that discomfort and breakthrough that you know that comfort zone and just and have trust and faith so somebody. That's it's going through transition through this three step process. How long would it typically take. We're kind of time. You really get dedicated to this. When i'm working with people..

8 killed in shootings at 3 metro Atlanta spas. Police have 1 suspect in custody
"Area. Many of the victims appear to be women of Asian descent. Police have a suspect in custody and are investigating a motive on morning edition from NPR news jury selection in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derrick Show Vin is now in its second week. I'm Noel King Me Martinez how recent developments have complicated the process of finding impartial jurors. India is the world's largest vaccine producer. This hour, we hear how in his role in producing covert 19 vaccines is getting even bigger. It's Wednesday March 17th are your work from home swept pants green while they better be because it's ST Patrick's Day. The news is next. Live from NPR news in Washington. I'm Dave Mattingly.

In the area of the city, where four people were killed, three respond northeast Atlanta and one at a separate spot across the street.

Purdue Pharma proposes $10 billion plan to come out of bankruptcy
"Pharma, The company that makes OxyContin filed its bankruptcy plan last night, And here is the plan, the company itself will be dissolved. A new organization will be created that will direct profits to help people. Hurt by the opioid epidemic. Now, two dozen states immediately rejected this plan to help answer why NPR's addiction correspondent Brian Mann is with us. Hi, Brian. Hey. Good morning, Noel. How did Purdue Pharma described this plan working overtime. Yes. So what the company's president Steve Miller says, is that a new company is going to be created from the ashes of produce farmer that's going to essentially exist to benefit the public. The sack lawyers will have no roller ownership. And over time, this new firm will generate hundreds of millions of dollars, much of it from selling OxyContin, which they say they can do ethically and safely. Will also produce medicines that will go to help people suffering from opioid addiction, and they saved a total value of all that overtime will be roughly $10 billion. Members of the Sackler family also issued a statement late last night, saying, this plan offers and I'm quoting here. An important step toward providing help to those who suffer from addiction. It was clearly thought through. Why did so many states come out and rejected? Offhand? Yeah, there were months of negotiations leading up to this and a big complaint from state attorneys general, most of them Democrats, Noel is that produce farmer and its owners. Seculars. They're gonna only offer of about $500 million, right. At first. The rest of the cash payments, including $4.2 billion promised by the Sackler is themselves. That would be spread out slowly in installments that would be paid over most of the next decade. And that slow pace really angers critics like Maura Healey, she's attorney general in Massachusetts. What the sacristy are offering essentially is a way for the payments to be structured. That makes it convenient for them. They get to keep their billions of bank accounts and make money and use the interest to pay. You know, the state's out over time. Well there OxyContin fortune keeps growing. And there's one other rub here for critics, and that's the fact that a lot of that $10 billion in value that produce farmer talks about it doesn't actually come in the form of cash, which communities really need to pay for addiction programs. And said the plan envisions providing low cost addiction treatment drugs like people, Morphine and the lock zone, which this new spinoff company they hope to create, would make and sell at a discount.
Some Capitol Hill Lawmakers Back Amazon Workers' Attempt To Unionize
"Nearly six thousand amazon employees who work at a warehouse in bessemer alabama are voting by mail on whether to unionize. If they do this will be the first union amazon facility in this country. Here's jennifer bates. Who works there. I keep butterflies and butterflies. Normally come to calm me but hey this is my stomach faithful. It seems like it's getting bigger and bigger full of butterflies. Because there's no break in. Think i don't know how kogo nerve wracking. The election ends later. This month and i should mention. That amazon is a financial supporter of npr. But we cover them like any other company. Some lawmakers support the union. Including senator marco marco rubio or republican and of course president biden also michigan congressman andy levin earlier this month. He and a group of democrats traveled to bessemer. Good morning congressman. Good morning noel. How are you good thanks. What did amazon employees. They're tell you about why they want to unionize. Well you know a union election so often are about basic dignity and that was really true here. I was shocked to learn what it's really like in there They work in a facility. That's like fourteen football fields and it can take ten minutes to walk to a break room. They've to half hour breaks in a ten hour shift so they might get effectively ten hours to eat lunch be by the time they walk there and back lot of them. Don't feel like they can go to the bathroom. Except on their break. And they're watched and quantified every second they're monitored visually a listening geo positioning and every second they're not on task is measured and if they have a certain number of minutes off task in a week they could be fired sometimes might not even be a person involved it was really kind of dehumanizing to me. Here's the argument. That amazon makes amazon. Says look our employees. Earn fifteen dollars an hour which is a good wage in a place like bessemer alabama. Some of them have health benefits. 401k's essentially they have got the benefits that a union would get them. They don't need a union. What do you make of that argument. I'd like to tell that argument to any national football league player and the actor and a movie any presenter on major television or radio networks all of whom have a union every single one. The idea that unions are only for people who are the most poorly paid. It's ridiculous the one person who is unionized. That every airline is the pilot so this argument is ridiculous. These workers deserve a seat at the table to discuss a safe workplace. During a pandemic they deserve a seat at the table to have a workplace. That's human and a real person can go to and great make fifteen dollars. An hour amazon should pay them a lot more the owner of the company. The main owner had his wealth increase. Seventy eight billion dollars during a pandemic and they're about pay jeff bezos in their bag bragging about paying people fifteen dollars an hour there. What's wrong with workers having their own organization just that they can have input in their in in their work lives. And that's all these people are seeking is a seat at the table during this trip to alabama that you went on your colleague congressman jamaal. Bowman said this doesn't stop with amazon. He mentioned lift. Uber tesla and walmart as well. What is the ultimate goal here. The goal is for workers to be able to form a union and bargain collectively. If they darn well please. Noel were down to six percent of private sector workers in this country needing union. We're gonna pass the proactive in the congress and the president is going help. Lead into new era when workers can have a say at the table. It's long pastime in this country. Michigan congressman andy levin. Thank you
How to Use Clubhouse with Monique Howard
"Coward. Welcome to the voice by podcast. Hi thank you brett fridge. Finding me here yeah. I'm excited have you. So i've noticed that you have been very active on clubhouse. I'm looking forward to getting your perspective on it but before we get into that. Why don't you tell the listeners. A little bit about you and your role in the voice industry great so i am the ceo and founder of smart goals. And what we do. Is we create voice apps in the tech space specifically geared toward helping the supporting kids with social emotional learning conversations skills. So we've been doing that. We actually got into it around right before the pandemic on a small team of women got together on very focused. And we're really intentional. When we create those apps because we think about things like fine motor skills. We think about things like reciprocal communication and we think about things like building vocabulary. So it really really intention. We create the apps. That's amazing it's like voice tech- for good yes. Yes yes yes. So we are really excited about it. we partner with schools as well as non profits to kind of get those Apps within the to to the kids who have been need them the most and the one thing that we find that they're fun right. They don't really know that they're learning. So i was really really fun and then it also gives something different from just looking at a screen all day of pink playing a computer game so the people that we partner with a really excited about goes apps created. Yeah what time to launch it is. Everyone is remote learning from home. Now they're looking for tools precisely like what you're offering exactly in the big thing about it. Is that his exposure for us. We understand that yes. Most people have a device on. But they're only using it the weather or directions or to order something and so this exposes the kids to something different especially for those in underserved community who may not have a device at home it gives them extra exposure to understand it. Hey this is something that i can do. Which has led us to start creating courses or classes for young kids so that not only they're exposed to it but also learn how to create apps of their own great all right so i'm really glad to have that background. I'm sure there's you've piqued the interest of a lot of listeners. Who are probably going to check out some articles which will get into it at the end. We'll give give everybody to see. Ta that they can go and check it out today. We're talking about clubhouse. I would say we're clubhouse friends. We've been at a lot of room together. We spoke together on which has been great because we didn't really have any interaction before that maybe a couple of times twitter or something like that but We hadn't had a chance to formally so this is extending it further. We're at the podcast together. I would say someone in the voice industry. Why don't you start out by telling us a little bit about when you joined and what your first experiences were on the on the network so i joined in november. Maybe kind of late november noel. Silver is actually invited me so she myself and another friend of ours. We actually met at the conference in new jersey. The first voice conference there. So that's where we met and we kept in touch on Motive exactly And so that's where we met. She invited myself. And another lady denise to the platform my initial experience was that it was a great place for really rich conversation. So i can just bounce from room to room here with people are saying and joining i likes. I really really enjoy the fact that i can either be just a listener and just soak all the information or i can actually be involved in the conversation and i think that's the point that we miss a lot in that when we're listening you we love podcast but we would love to acts that person who's leading the podcasts or the host to just ask one question so that was the big thing for me and besides not having to get on video all the time so it's always a great bonus but my first day was like a twenty four hour marathon twenty four hours twelve or twelve hour marathon just really feeling the full of a voice what clubhouse actually causes people to feel and But then i kind of sell the into. Where the niche did i wanted to actually start participating in which was tech. I'm still around businesses startups. And so those were the main room said i really gravitated to so it. Sounds like you started out mostly as a listener but you've become increasingly more active. And i think you're you're hosting rooms now. So what did you talk about what your evolution was like. Why you sort of moved to where you are today and how you're using it today. Yes so that was one of our goals would know out in these night got onto. The platform is to educate bis small businesses about voice So obviously we had to get acclimated to the environment. What was going on. But we quickly schedule rome every friday at two central to just have it introduction to 'em where we saw amazon alexa right just as most people know about that missile. We hosted those roads every friday little small sided with a small group than it grew a little bit larger. We don't have large I would say has gotten large over time. But it's not like hundreds and hundreds of people but we often get a lot of people who kinda combat time after time

NASA’s Perseverance rover lands on Mars
"Good morning, Scientists from Planet Earth will land another mission on Mars today. NASA calls the rover perseverance. NPR's science correspondent Joe Palka has been following this one. Good morning, Joe. Morning, Noel, Can we talk about the logistics of this? They have to get a hurtling projectile toe land safely on Mars. How is this done? Yeah. What's the big trick? It's going 12,000 MPH, and they have two landed it two MPH. No problem. Well, what happens is they're overs packed up into something called the Aero Shell, which hits the top of the atmosphere on Mars and Atmosphere slows the craft down and it's friction heats up. That's why there's a heat shield, but that does slow it down quite a bit. But then there's a giant. Parachute that slows it down further and then finally, there's something called the Sky Crane, which is a jet pack that flies over the landing site to the landing site, then lowers the rover down on a tether and then cuts the cord and flies away. But the interesting thing is, this is the same landing system that the last rover used called curiosity. But it's been made more up to date by the fact that it's got this smart landing system so that you can actually look for Ah, good place to land. If it doesn't like the first place it picks the confide to the next one. What is modern is all the computers and navigation systems are on this new rover. The design of the rocket engines on the sky Crane is actually 50 years old. Believe it or not, those engines all trace their way back to the Viking Landers. That's Joe Cassidy, He's executive director for space at Arrow Jet Rocket die in the company that makes the rocket engine. The Viking missions landed on Mars in the mid seventies, and Cassidy says the rocket designed depended on a special valve that made it possible to vary the Rockets thrust. Funny part is back in the seventies, We had a supplier that actually developed that forest with J. P L came back to us in the latter part of the first decade of the 21st century and said, We want you to do that again. That supplier was no longer in business. But luckily they were able to find an alternate supplier who would make the valve for them. Very luckily, what is perseverance looking for on Mars? Well, it's landing in a place called Jez zero Crater, which was they think a lake bed 3.5 or Lake 3.5 billion years ago, And the idea is there might might might have been microbes in the lake. So there'll be cameras on the rover that will study the appearance of rocks looking for things like stromatolites, which are structures left behind by mats of bacteria. They're also instruments on the rover that will measure the chemical and mineral composition of the rocks at the landing site, and Nina Lanza is a geologist at Los Alamos National Lab and the scientists on one of those instruments called super Camp. See, this is the kind of thing that a geologist needs right. We need both chemistry. What's in Iraq and mineralogy how it's arranged. So knowing those things tells a lot about the conditions under which the rock form then whether or not those conditions were conducive to life. I asked this excitedly. Could we be getting news soon, saying that there was life on Mars? Well, it's one of those news stories where people get very excited, but they will also say I'm from Missouri proof show me so that's actually the idea of this. They may see things that look like there might have been life there. But they say to confirm that they have to bring the rocks back to Earth. And in fact, that's what this mission is going to do. It's going to collect samples that a future mission will return to Earth. Okay. NPR Mars correspondent Joe Palka.
Why Nursing Homes' COVID-19 Legal Shields May Interfere With Other Cases
"You listen to podcasts. In twenty seven states nursing homes have gotten special legal protections during the covid nineteen pandemic that means in most cases families can't sue if someone they love got sick or died at one the nursing home say they're doing the best they can and they need those legal shields but that also may stop people whose injuries have nothing to do with covid from seeking justice in the courts. Noel talked with. Npr's jaffe been looking into this. Why were these laws passed in the first place. You remember that. The corona virus outbreak started as far as most people were aware in a nursing home and currently long term care facilities account for more than a third of all deaths from covid nineteen nursing homes were caught scrambling for personal protective equipment. They were shifting recommendations of how contagious disease was and the industry made a case that they shouldn't be held responsible for dealing with this moving target. Are there any lawsuits pending against nursing homes relating to covid or did these immunity laws. Basically finish them off. While there is one in durham north carolina. It's questioned whether it's related to covid. Possibly it's the first of its kind involves the death of a woman named palestine house. Her daughter lisa set her. Mother's death had nothing to do with corona virus. Her mother had a pressure ulcer or bedsores there commonly known she'd had it since december of twenty eighteen and it just got worse. It became infected. Lisa how said she begged traber and rehabilitation center. Send her mother to the emergency room but they assured us that they could handle it. Lisa house and her three sisters had their doubts and their experience traber and rehabilitation center. Didn't seem to be able to handle much on a scale of one to five stars. The federal government gives traber and just one it also gets below average ratings on the ratio of nurses to residence. The government has find traber. Almost one hundred ninety thousand dollars in the past three years. We were there a lot and we found ourselves having to bathe her just general things they were supposed to do. We'd come in several times when she hadn't been fed her just sitting there. The house sisters hadn't had a lot of luck with nursing homes. In general trae burn was the third one they tried. It was close to where they live so the sisters could visit often but it hardly mattered. One families were locked out of nursing homes in march. Everything got harder and took longer. Palestine house needed specialists in wound care and iv antibiotics. Lisa house had her mother's power of attorney again. She begged trae burn rehabilitation to send her mother to the emergency room where they could find the specialists. She needed again. She was turned down their excuses. Were well the hospitals not taking new patients because of covert and she would be safer she stayed here and the facility is equipped to take care of your mother and none of those things turned out to be true. Palestine house died a train rehabilitation center on april fourteenth. Twenty twenty one month later. North carolina passed a sweeping liability shield for long term care facilities. The nursing homes with rare exceptions were immune from lawsuits. The measure was made retroactive to march tenth. Lisa house and her sisters decided to suit rayburn. Anyway elizabeth todd is their attorney. Palestine house did not have to die in that way or at that time and for the legislature to say that the nursing homes need protection in the middle of a pandemic not the nursing. Home patients is outrageous and it's unjust north carolina's immunity law lasts until the pandemic is over. Todd is especially worried that the law gives the free past nursing homes with low staffing trayvon and so literally the nursing homes can take their own understaffing their chronic understaffing and use it as a shield to prevent any liability at all during the covid pandemic through their attorneys train. Rehabilitation center declined comment but for many in the long term care industry. These immunity measures are welcome. Relief says dave voelpel. Ceo of the zona healthcare association. Arizona governor doug ducey was among the first to sign an executive order granting nursing homes and assisted living facilities legal immunity and for that we apart him. Because that just takes a little bit of pressure off. Though paul says it allows facilities to focus on what's most important we need to worry about. Keeping covert out of the building that sometimes that cuts into the bottom line says bubble take for instance one hundred bed building and they really have fifty rooms two beds per room that to keep infection from spreading those double rooms may have to be converted to private rooms. So revenue is cut in half. It really takes its toll on the business side of the ledger. Long term care facilities face a crisis if existential proportions says mark reagan the attorney for the california association of health facilities that's because liability insurance are excluding things covert when they renew policies which would mean that any claims made regarding covert infection would be subject to exclusion and no insurance coverage congressional. Republicans wanted a national immunity law but dropped as part of the deal for the latest coronavirus. Relief package reagan. Still has hopes what we're merely asking for is stats caregivers. And their employers. Don't get punished for doing the best that they could. Under the circumstances. I imagine that the family of palestine house doesn't in fact the nursing home was doing the best it could for their mother. Well right there attorney. Elizabeth todd points out that one of north carolina's immunity criteria is that facility must be acting in good faith and she doesn't see how can argue that they did that. So where does
Biden administration gets to work on reversing Trump-era immigration policies
"The pandemic is his top priority than immigration appears to be bite. And second, he signed several executive actions on immigration yesterday and assault on President Trump's most controversial policies and by then sent a bill to Congress that offers a pathway to citizenship for more than 10 million immigrants who are in this country illegally. NPR's John Burnett covers immigration and is on the line with us from Austin. Good morning, John. Morning, Noel so many new White House initiatives on immigration in less than 24 hours. Yeah, it's mammoth. It's a complete repudiation of Donald Trump's crackdown on immigration. Biden signed executive actions to throw out the so called Muslim travel ban to Temple to temporarily halt construction of the border wall for the next 100 days to rein in ice agents and stop certain deportations and to strengthen Dhaka. That's the Obama era program that shields the dreamers from deportation. These air immigrants who were brought here illegally as Children, and many have now become essential workers. Trump tried to cancel doctor but the Supreme Court kept the program alive. Okay, So those are the executive actions. And then there's the Biden Bill. How ambitious is it? Uh, well. In the most dramatic step, Biden was to create a roadmap to citizenship for more than 10 million undocumented immigrants. This is the big immigration reform that some people have been clamoring for for decades. Guidance bill says an undocumented immigrant could become an American in eight years if they pass background checks, pay their taxes and complete a citizenship test. Also, Biden wants to allow Maura refugees into the US who are fleeing war and natural disasters. Lawmakers, as you point out, have been fighting over immigration reform for decades. So what kind of chance does this have of passing in Congress? Yeah, it's going to be a tough sell Noel among the immigration hawks in this tightly divided Congress. They're leery that Biden wants to dismantle all those tough border controls that Trump imposed. There's not much in here about border security. Biden wants his Homeland Security Department to expand surveillance technology as an alternative to those steel and concrete barriers. Here's Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies. They favor less immigration to the U. S. It's a radical departure from all previous amnesty plants because it has no enforcement in it, You know, so I actually think realistically. There's no way to send it could ever pass this. Okay? He wants less immigration. How are immigrant rights advocates responding to this? Well, they're downright giddy. I mean, yesterday they came in from the cold for four years. They bemoaned one trump anti immigrant policy after the next There were more than 400 of them and all, but it's a new day. Here's Grayson Martinez process. She's an undocumented dreamer herself and head of the group United We dream. This is the most progressive legalization bill in history. We made it we made this day happen on we are resolute in our commitment to bring peace stability enjoyed to our people as we turn the new chapter in our country.

Proud Boys Brawl With D.C. Cops Ahead of Pro-Trump March
"It's a tense day in Washington, D. C. Congress is meeting to certify the election results and thousands of President Trump's supporters are gathering in the city to reject those results. This is the third time they've rallied in D. C since the November vote, But this time the language they're using is more violent. NPR's Hannon Lamb has been watching this one. Good morning, Hannah. Good morning, You were at the first two rallies. What's different this time around? Well, no. Well, it's been kind of like watching a play and fold in three acts. You know, at the time of the first rally right after the vote November, there were still open legal challenges. So Trump supporters were hopeful celebrating at the second last month, it was clear Joe Biden had one That reality hadn't really sunken in, so there was still defiance but also growing anger. Now today at three, there are no more cards to play within the system. So now it's more than anger was seeing rage. Threats of violence on this one feels less like a protest and more like a last stand. And you know, we've seen the president really leading the pack embracing this delusion of a stolen election and promoting conspiracies and disinformation really nonstop and even urging his followers to rise up fight like hell is he put it? Stopping just short of endorsing violence. So, yeah, The steaks do seem higher this time around or two weeks away from Inauguration day, and we've got a president who's saying quote. They're not taking this White House. You are going to be out on the streets today covering this rally. Who do you expect to see Who's going to be there? We expect kind of the same crowd that we've seen a previous rallies. There's always a main show some of the big names on the right wing speakers circuit, usually delivering a mix of sort of conspiracy and fearmongering about the election. Second Amendment. Socialism vaccines now and then there's always the sideshow. You know, extremist pop up with big social media, following Zor podcasts, Cuban on figures, white supremacist militia style groups, and then you know violent gangs like the proud boys, and in the past, the daytime's been relatively calm. The Knights have turned violent. As you know, Proud boys and others go out hunting anyone They perceive it's empty fa and you know, because of that violence this time, the local police will have support from the D. C National Guard. I went out last night. Briefly. It was quite a the time, but fights did break out later is Trump supporters were trying toe push past the cops to get to black lives matter Plaza right there outside the White House. Who are bracing for more of that today and then Noel on top of the risk of physical violence. So there's a heavy dose of coronavirus denial or at least minimizing, you know, we know mass aren't popular with this crowd and That's a whole different kind of danger associated with a big event like this in a raging pandemic. Of course. I mean, look, the fact is Joe Biden won the election, He's going to be inaugurated. But there are some people who will not accept that fact. What do you think you've been covering these folks for a while? What do you think happens next for them? What's their next move? Yeah, And we're talking about a significant chunk of the population. You millions of Americans who embraced these false embrace these false claims who still see Trump is their rightful leader. And no, that doesn't vanish overnight. When Biden takes office where they take this depends on a number of factors, including what happens within the Republican Party once Trump is out of power. And you know what Trump himself goes on to do whether he stays on the sidelines or keeps inserting himself into politics. And, you know, there's also concerned that some of this anger and conspiracy is going to bubble into acts of violence. We've already seen some instances of that, including this plot to kidnap the governor of Michigan. So, yes, domestic terrorism analyst worry that will see continued unrest and they fear arise and political violence. We're not even through today. Yet Some are already organizing for yet another rally this one scheduled for January 20th
How A Cybersecurity Firm Uncovered The Massive Computer Hack
"David Greene in Los Angeles. And I'm Noel King in Washington, D C. Good morning. How should the U. S government respond to a computer hack that breached both government networks and private companies? Most cyber security experts think Russia is responsible for the Hack and NPR's national security correspondent Craig Marie has been talking to some of them. Good morning, Greg. Good morning. No. Well, perhaps most importantly, is the half over. Absolutely not. It's still ongoing and we're continuing to learn details. We've heard now that the Treasury Department hack occurred in July, and like other government departments, this was just uncovered in recent days. Email of top officials was hacked, though apparently not. The account of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, also no evidence that classified systems were breached. This information has come from Democratic Senator Ron Wyden, who was briefed on the matter and we can expect this kind of information to sort of dribble out in the weeks and months ahead. As government agencies and private companies go through their computer networks. But clearly much of this is going to fall on the Biden administration to make sure the hack inside government computer networks is over that there's clear attribution on who did it and then to decide how to respond. These major breaches have happened before. Does the government have a strategy to deal with them? No, absolutely not. Again. There are no rules or red lines are clear consequences for adversaries who get caught Now, today what we end up seeing is lots of hand wringing and ultimately some sort of limited responses. Right now, With this current hack. We're seeing wrestling over the definition. Some members of Congress called this an act of war. Now, cyber experts and the intelligence community do see it is a big deal but more along the lines of traditional espionage, albeit on a massive scale. I spoke about this with P. W singer cyber expert at the New America think tank. This was not an act of war. This is more cold War style back and forth espionage stealing of secrets. That's why you've seen the reaction from the intelligence community to be a mix of Oh, my God. What just happened? And Gosh, we got a tip the hat to them. What a coup for them. So if there is no clear way to respond, Greg what of the range of options here? Traditional spying might generate public criticism, kicking out suspected spies, perhaps, um, sanctions, But when this has happened, it really hasn't changed the behavior of Russia. Any other adversaries they still seek. Hacking is a low cost high return proposition. Singer says the U. S can and needs to do much more and should create deterrence in two ways gave a boxing analogy, saying US needs to punch back harder and also develop more resiliency to absorb the growing number of cyber blows. Make the parallel to Mike Tyson. You don't hit him because he'll punch you back in the face vs Mohammad Ali rope a dope right through resilience where you don't hit me because it just won't work out for you. What else do we know? So we know that the government and private companies were both hacked. What do we know about the private companies? We haven't heard that much from them. Have we? No, that's right. But we are hearing more of the hackers clearly targeted. Many tech companies in this makes a lot of sense. They hackers Coley want these cutting edge cyber tools that these companies have, so presumably the hackers can use them themselves. And the first organization to detect this hack two weeks ago was fire I, a prominent cyber security firm, Fireeye CEO Kevin Mandia spoke with NPR's all things considered yesterday. And he said, these hackers were extremely sophisticated, and once they got into the system, they carried out an operation that was specifically designed to attack fire. I he realized very early on as they launch their own investigation that this was a level of tradecraft he'd never seen before. And he said the scale of this hack really drives home the need for a strong national cyber policy. It's time this nation comes up with some doctrine on what we expect Nations rules of engagement to be And what will our policy or proportional response beat of folks who violate that doctrine Because Right now. There's absolutely in escalation in cyberspace. It just seems astonishing that we don't yet have the doctrine in the year. 2020. The US, however, does have a lot of cybersecurity might what is preventing us from using it more effectively? No. Well, you're still seeing a lot of things that are in the works. Homeland Security Cyber Agency was just launched in 2018 and focused on the elections this year. And and by all accounts, did I did I did a good job. Right now, There's the military authorization bill on the president's desk waiting to be signed. It has money for additional cyber upgrades, and by all accounts, you're seeing a lot more cooperation between the government and private tech companies. But this country is losing huge sums of money due to the cyber attacks. And a couple years ago, the N S a director Paul Marcus, Sony was at his confirmation hearing. And he was asked if adversaries fear the U. S and cyberspace, he said the answer is absolutely not. MPR's Greg Marie, Thanks so much, Greg. My pleasure. America's hospitals are really

You know saying that will nation was perfect. It was so good you know really works. Supports the story. yeah.

I think that's probably like the only place i've fully know the story from address book but the first time i witnessed the story and get. This was christmas carol story. Yeah like i watched that.

Murray amen. no wrong answer there but yeah. So joker drags batmans lifeless body in throws him in empty grave And then buries them. Batman is unconscious surely slowly suffocating to death. He has this horrific vision of what he thinks could potentially happen In his absence so like it if and when he dies with the current state that he's leaving things and he has a vision of what he thinks. Coughing could look like and this is where things i. I think it really clever here because we see here is. There's people who are being tried for aiding and abetting criminals such as jim gordon and alfred who had been tried in a court of law for for helping the batman Commit his vigilante crimes. Or what have you but we also see in. The aftermath of that is a version of the sons of batman Take on essentially people who have the more joker approach to live more. Chaos is the only constant gap of people gang war of the pro bats and the pro jokers. Yes you really love about. This is The sense of batman. I kind of a deep cut because like if you guys remember. That was the group of young who arrived in the dark knight story. The dark knight returns story. That is Frank miller's classic We see those group of young misguided magellan's rise up. And then bruce wayne the eventually takes the money was wing he kind of show them the ropes in how to go about doing this business the right way well in this vision that bruce has here He's not there so he's not a guy. The sons of batman and they kind of go often they commit these atrocities in the name of the bad thing and they were doing is right and just and of course also have the people who are representing the side of anarchy and chaos thing invest.

Your changed about shit me attract together and that's what the spirit's war essentially to be. The the warnings were damn poor evans man. He wasn't able to let them chains. You can break him either can break them chains so moving on we have now is. He won't ever love them again. We've already moved on but at through more in there you have missed the bus. There's a lot of home user. Just like that's a really obscure reference guys has not a great one. I give three out of five But no sir. Bruce does miss or he does fall off the rooftop because the the the edging gives way as he tries to chase the lena and he falls to the alley below and now whether this is actually crime alley or were they just falls in an alley. That reminds me of crime. Elliot's is kind of irrelevant because he has you know those those flashbacks of that fateful night on car on crime alley and you know that. This is not a well batman because my first question here when reading this was like dude. You're batman where should would you grappling gun. Come on yeah yeah like you me both know that you would have pulled that thing out the second. You saw gargle head start to crack. You know look with the distraction of the flashbacks to crime molly and of course his traumatic Experience as a young man. It's it's yeah and also the fact that like mentioned earlier. He's he's unwell sick as dog. You know six bat. Get out okay. I deserve that see. This was a sickness start. Going back really happened last year. We should've covered joking in a now. I do have to point this out because this is something that apple was kinda worried about two which is up. I wanna selena. Never came back now. I get in terms of the overarching story. Yeah but she was angry at batman he he was not. He was not persuaded by her advances. He didn't want to play the game so she'll come with them later. Assuming that he survived. Fall is showing. She's like he'll be fine good point so it's one of those like a narrative perspective. I get it because of this point you understand lease doing here with the story and with the ghost of christmas past and all that you can have the ghost come back and like hey man you are so if i do get it but i guess it's just like from the story that's being told in the yard work here it's like surely selena would have been like you know checking on bruce to make sure that you know he didn't die or get broken now. It'd be nice. Yeah and but then we're immediately reduced to The second ghost ghost of christmas present. Your which is superman. yes and I loaded with a lead draws npr and also the way that superman is colored because like. He's he's glowing is definitely our city in frigging dismal night. Superman is always given that lighthouse affect your yeah.

"So if you could Go and put a stop to this day. Great in batman. Kinda you know lays the jim like. You can't handle the yourselves in. The boys can't do this. Like i have to go out there and find the joker you guys should be worrying about selena And so once again. Batman very foul mood and i get it. You're sick and a dangerous lunatic is out there. Who's probably killing people as you talk to commissioner gordon but come on man have a bad heart And so he he does decide to go out there and look for selena and he finds her and now this is Would stand in place of as being like the ghost of christmas past. Yes and this is very cool way because we really see here is Really wanting to remind bruce of Of what she calls the good old days Like the cat and mouse chase which is ironic actually because in the collection of the christmas. Carol won't recall that. Chris past actually highlighted for evans earlier. That hey life used to be pretty good view to bra. You know remember you had a young romance. You had this romantic fling with this young woman and there were gerald good times and they had like depending on the depiction you watch or read or whatever have you. You'll see them like playing in snow and having a great all fun just romantic data time just like nothing that reflects on the current ebony scrooge when we were introduced earlier kind of the same thing here where we like batman chasing down selena having their flirtatious like balanced back and forth. Like you're a criminal anita put you in versus over like flirting dance. You know zepa meho dances between super. Well better mayo. Excuse me whatever last. Americanized it. And i try to put an accent somewhere between All right hey. If you like it. I love it but now what also is really cool about this too. Was that Swims approach. Here's that she she legitimately wants to just kinda have fun and in her mind like vid vessels. It's always been a gauge. She doesn't care about the jaws in this particular instance. Hey bats come on which doing tonight in a sexual way. Just more come on. Let's play our game. Yeah i mean because there's a game that she can't play with anyone else and it's one of those things where you know we see like i said kind of those flashbacks here of Those two kind of going at it with the whole chase sequence throughout history that also even gave us a his interpretation of like the old cat woman get up mistaken like what is your age. Yeah like the old thing that makes her look like a dagger was.

"And as bright eyed and optimistic and bushy tailed. There's one would imagine. A young spirited young led to be. Yeah and man like this is true. You can help it. Kinda feel bad for little timmy ear. Because he doesn't have shit his dad really isn't shit there. It's not a bad guy but his dad has clearly made some bad decisions in life and they also have a pretty ambiguous picture in the background. That shows bob timmy. And what we consume as bob's wife mother. Of course timmy's mom is is nowhere in the story She's just kind of hit in the picture in the background But timmy here has built a a tree. And i used to determine sri very loosely. It looks like ours always Descriptors time so our tree. I i think i talked about this. On a podcast of like many moons months ago but forever ago homes. I planted a couple of avocado pits. In the they've grown quite nicely into decent little like two foot saplings and they got decent good sized dark green leafy age in growing will. It's my little green thumb plant experiment. Here it's going awesomely. It is our christmas tree because q. And i didn't want to go out and buy one in the one that we had last year. Unfortunately my sister. She's using this. She had set it up for herself. And that's where our christmas lights are by the way a confirmed that got to get those later but anyways so our christmas decorations are around this two foot. Tall sapling of an avocado tree tree is a polite generous term. The way it is it is not very tall home. It's got some christmas decor in bets. That's her a christmas. There you have any have and it's kind of like what are to me. Here's rock and he's got like a coffee tin can dry dirt a a leafless dry. Twig of a tree stabbed into it with a cut up a beer can. Yeah there's a toy soldier. Yeah like a broken beer bottle. Yeah just like very junkie looking stuff hanging off of this tree like you wouldn't want to touch the tree because you're afraid you get like some type of infection. Yeah that's how bad this tree books that are as at least have lease that is true is true christmas.

North man told me has business time building destroyed toys for children Anyways bob. He'd he he performs to drop off. And i love the way that the league draws is art once again Lease our is fantastic and his colorist is equally as talented Forget her name after. Look her name up here But her coloring work is fantastic But also will be here is that bob looks very distraught about the job. Like even before spoiler alert even before batman shows up. Bob looks very distraught about performing this task. Because he doesn't we don't even know what he's dropping off to send location. Bob doesn't know what he's picking up. We can all kind of assume at this point We we will find out shortly though where he retrieves the package From drop off at the he jumps off the package and at this point. Now he's going to go take this thing to the Disclosed location in which case a giant goddamn batman drops from the sky and At this point. Hopefully as you're like he he's he's understanding very quickly shit. Didn't want to be here that want to do this. You know steve rogers in the background. It's like being chased by the batman. You made some questionable decisions and now you being chased by the batman. Well be prepared for what's gonna happen. There's no there's no better get kicked so the first thing you need to understand the first thing you need ask yourself is. How good is your health insurance. Plan the second thing you need to ask is are you a frank miller story. If so your health insurance doesn't matter it won't get But batman does come from the sky 'cause he's been telling bob from the rooftops this whole time and he very easily apprehended. Bob and batman is extremely aggressive in the story. I mean batman is He's angry. Yeah i mean like he's he's dark place yeah Yeah they'll go not just as bad cave but yes also mentally. He's in a space is not the best. Like this is a very nationalistic batman. This is a bad man who i'm not gonna say. He's lost faith in gotham but he has seemingly lost faith in the citizens of gotham their capacity for change. That's what put them because you correct. He is super nihilistic you to he's just kind of like nine apathetic really because.

"Yeah overall like it's. It's really really well done. I have very few bad notes if any on it Yes i'm digging it. You yeah and you know. Batman no will Fun fact about this book This idea was originally pitched last year but because of We are already had our our schedule plan for the month of december last year until we didn't have the room to the story in the here we are later and damaged. It made the cut hell So once again libra him. Oh is both the and the writer for this now for those you who may think. They named samir which quite recall his work He he normally works a lot with Brian nazarenko Brian is role as the writer. Who has penned book such as batman damned The joker he's done luthor Those are the books that are primarily. No brian as a low in libra him. Oh to work together on a lot As a matter of fact. I think that joker This is what we cover it Before the movie came out actually But that was the first book that The lieber him over drew at least for dc comics so that was very early in his career. And i believe the second thing that he did was what we are covering tonight. Which is batman noel. Yeah so when it comes to like recommendations. I gotta be honest. I'll i'll never not recommend the lieber him. Oh book because his artwork is so fantastic is really really awesome. Dude home. Look look how he delicately chose. Everything was super good like you can see like what influences he likes because the book is as much as the present story as it is of revisitation and homage. Really to the the chosen. Art styles and like khoram's of yesteryears. You know and it pays tribute really well. Wow doing its own thing completely different. I love that dude. Yeah yeah. I mean i guess like really. What's not to love about that right. That's a winning. It is don't complicate it. Don't don't make this anymore complicated. The needs to be and I think that with this book. Lee wasn't trying to reinvent the wheel I mean clearly. He's taking you know the christmas carol christmas store. There's no christmas carol christmas carol written by charles dickens. Yeah yeah that story by that guy and You know so. He tastes a christmas. Carol and he just kind of oposite toback man and now just to kind of give you guys a a brief overview of what the story is by the way they will be Some some spoilers moving forward here But you know once again. If you're familiar with christmas carol even as loosely as i am. Then you know this not a whole terrible lot. Despoil you in the story. But this here is primarily taken from appeal. V of a character batman Smart fagged to an extent Batman is more of a antagonistic figure in the story. agreed to say Yeah absolutely so In the stories told from the perspective of a mr bob What was the name of the guy in the christmas. Carol who represents this name was also. Bob one bob Credit.

Would there being so many other christmas movies. That may or may not be directly tied to christmas yet are exhibited as christmas movies right definitely batman returns deserves a spot on that list. Amen do also guys. we're actually. Yeah we're trying to do a patriot. On this Christmas specials have changed like the definition of a christmas. Special is more free form than it used to be. You know a lot of more like latter-day more recent christmas specials at least or not as heavily laced with christmas spirit in the christmas vibe and like consumerism. exactly it's not so much like like dipped into the deep end of ho ho. Merry christmas we have to like. Have this many christmas drops and this mini like santa references and shit like that. Like for instance something like bo jack horsemen technically at christmas special and also very free form christmas special. If that is a christmas thing then why not things like. This is just a newer age retelling of a christmas special. They haven't yeah. And i guess also depends on would what does it take to really be classified as a christmas special much anymore season. This is our christmas special episode. Made fucking christmas to me because as west your santa hat wearing it actually wait. No i think we do have one somewhere.
