Beg your forgiveness in advance. Thank you without further ado though. Let's jump right into it a thousand years ago this area we're talking about the forest of leon's was a wild in secretive place why it was inhabited by just a handful of hermit.

What am i going to say. Getting actually service roundtable event in sydney dag comeback was years ago. Yeah sorry definitely has changed over the years. So we have about forty five coaches that work with us and we should do training we do. What's really unique with us. Man is of course. Training training is great but we do ongoing accountability coaching though it really starts to help shift the mindset in that really affects the behavior and natural you start to see the real change takes place over time. Yup aleki certainly preaching Here because we put a lot of emphasis in episode type of years into accountability. And you know the difference between a dream and a golf betting a strategy italy's contest sophon. They'd myself over the years since since having accountability partners implies things things might quick show sorrow. Moulik decide this will be extremely well recites and you guys obviously in different locations is that is that because of the recent recent events or is that always been the case. I try to stay as far away as possible to erica. why i'm in texas. He's in utah. She's awesome but man. We actually have an autonomous company in. We don't have a brick and mortar building.

I touched on slave in this series of crowded. Today is the first episode of the creating amazing employee experience. Now we've done the whole customer experience in the past and some it was very well received and think in lots of current global economic situations with the off the back of the pandemic romell your experiences villanova. There's a lot of guys out there. A freaked up to the whole conversation around that staffer attention you know grinding good employees here experience deciding on just funding and i think now more than ever this sort of a situation where the the baby of talent around because for one reason or another people living that guy from the jobs and you know especially after year anyway of the years as miss this constant screen for office off.

So we're gonna first step aside which we're talking about why your employees experience probably socks and nothing that would relate to most listeners Second upside we're talking about what you purpose at. In feticide we talking about what the successful companies to retain the employees are through. That you're gonna come up with those topics and you come up with original. What is that reason. So haven't employee experienced for shore is not just creating an employee experience where you have everyone coming into office. Because that's not normal anymore. You got coming into office than your get sent home against. You gotta figure out how to work from home in the now you gotta come back into the office. Now you're going to have an employee experience at home. How do you take care of your people right now. It's always been important but you definitely have to juggle all these different dynamics and one of the things that we have really seen. Is that your culture either by default or by design and it's really setting your employees up for success and even though you know contractors were not the disneyland's not the amazons the googles in t. mobile's or whatever we're not huge corporations where you hear of all these things or evil get one year off when they have their first kid from work paid like we're we can't do that kind of staff but we still have to nurture and take care of the people that we have and find ways we can help them grow and be successful regardless of the size of our company.

Germany takes hard-line position against Russia amid Navalny fallout

Germany takes hard-line position against Russia amid Navalny fallout

"With the you know what has been in the headlines recently, the the whole navalny tension Germany is clearly taking a harder line position on. Russia, and the first question is does this reflect a consensus in the region that Russia's a growing menace to Europe and then the second? Talk a little bit about the poisoning of Nevada and what kind of pressure Germany is under. We've heard some hard words from Angela Merkel and what would be the real pitfalls of moving forward without sending a clear message of protest. So if we can bundle all those into into kind of a general answer that would be great well, ever since the annexation of Crimea it is very hard to pretend that the previous policy on Russia which consisted and really trying to build a partnership through economic ties with corporation that this actually worked because the annexation of Crimea from from European. But also from your perspective, of course, was a violation of international law the forceful. Changing of orders as something that scene as absolutely illegitimate illegal and also undermining the European security order. And so Gemini has taken a pretty important role. Alongside, Franz in the so called Normandy format. which consisted in building a forum for dialogue with Russia Ukraine. Germany and France. Representatives to discuss how the violent conflict also in eastern Ukraine could be reduced on how Russia could hopefully pro-european perspective withdraw at some point. The other role that Germany constructively played I think is to help create a European consensus on sanctions. This was always over the past years a transatlantic consensus. This is very important to know because of course, if you if you want to sanction and this is a transatlantic approach, this is final impressive. Now with. The Nevada case the interesting question is why why this attempted murder of an opposition politician while they have been other cases before? And and my understanding his two things one this became a German and European issue because of the decision to bring Lebanon lead to Germany into have him treated here this created a huge political and public attention to the case and on the other hand additionally that was really. This feeling of this is just the last straw that that was needed to break camel's back. It was just now of. Russian suppression of opposition of burdens or attempted murders then the. The situation. In Ukraine the feel of a Russian support for the regime and Belarus and the possible violent crackdown on the demonstrations that are going on at the same time. So so suddenly, all this cumulated to a point where not only burden but in other capitals of Europe as well there's a very serious debate ongoing which is basically a review of the previous approach towards Russia and what can be done a which leverage can be used to bring about at least a certain change in Russia's policy. or at least to deter the activities like the ones I just mentioned. One thing is important to notice with all the Europeans, the debate that is a strong coercion on the European side, not to make the conflict that is happening within Belarus geopolitical between Europe and Russia. Because the concern of course is if the Russian narrative which is trying to build up this geopolitical narrative of European intervention and an attempt of Europeans to. Topple the regime and galleries if that was actually nudged the fears that Russia would would basically I'm hit back more forcefully. So it's a very I would say cautious discussion but a very realistic one as to the question what kind of actor we've facing here and there are no illusions whatsoever now about let's say the real face of the planet MIA Putin.

Joe Bide responds to report Trump called U.S. service members buried in France 'losers', 'suckers'

"We're getting continued reaction tonight to this reporting of the Atlantic tonight from Jeffrey. Goldberg their pieces titled Trump Americans who died in war are losers and suckers Gobert rece-. Citing several anecdotes with multiple sources for each of them which the president is. said to have derided US service members who have died in combat as losers and suckers. And who has expressed who expressed even standing over the grave of John Kelly son who died in Afghanistan at age twenty, nine that he doesn't get why Americans would choose to serve in the military. The Associated Press has just posted James Portas new piece as well confirming. The core reporting Jeffrey Goldberg's piece tonight in the Atlantic Laporta, confirming it again with multiple sources just Goldberg has but I want to tell you we've just had response from Vice President Joe Biden with a statement in response. Quote if the revelations in today's Atlantic article or true there yet another marker of how deeply president trump and I disagree about the role of the president of the United States I've Long said that the nation we have many obligations but we have only one truly sacred obligation to prepare those we send into harm's way and to care for them and their families both while they're deployed and After they return home. That's the foundation of what Jilin I believe. That's why we've always prioritized the health and wellbeing of our service members, veterans, and military families. We have visited troops coming home wounded, and Walter Reed we've hosted wounded veterans in our home to share Thanksgiving meal and it's the proud parents of a son who served in Iraq. We've made supporting military spouses, caregivers and children are focus. Of Our service generations of American troops have shed blood around the world and defensive our freedoms and to protect vital interests from the frontlines of our own revolution to Bellawood to the Normandy beaches to the mountains of Afghanistan, the sacrifice and bravery of our troops and their willingness to serve our nation should be honored duty honor country. Those are the values that drive our servicemembers. Those are the values. That, have formed the core of America's defense for centuries in. If have the honor of serving as the next commander in chief I will ensure that our American heroes know that I will have their back and honor their sacrifices always

DNC Announces Convention Speakers, Speculation On Biden's VP Pick Intensifies

"Of scheduled speakers at next week's Democratic National Convention is out, and it's being parsed for clues as to who's still in the running to be Joe Biden's running mate. He's expected to make that announcement any day now. Meanwhile, President Trump is floating the idea of accepting the Republican nomination later this month on Sacred ground. The Gettysburg Battlefield. NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson is watching it all. And Mara. You know, some names in the running to be Biden's running mate are scheduled to speak, but not in the VP slot, you know, and I'm just wondering if that's a fool's errand to try to make that meaningful, You know? What do you think about that? And who do you think at this point is thumb Where are may be the most likely candidates. I think the most likely candidates are still that same handful of women, you know, Joe Biden said. He's going to take a woman whether it's Kamala Harris, Susan Rice, Gretchen Whitmer, Karen Bass. Those are the people who have been on the list for quite some time. And and, of course, Gretchen Whitmer is the only white female on that short list. But I think the list has remained the same. Sounds like he's about to make his decision because the vetting committee has pretty much disbanded on DH. It could be as early as today that we find out So what do you think for everybody who's sitting home, you know, got all the names and the lists on whiteboards and, you know, trying to, you know, look at those tea leaves. And should we be looking at the List of speakers. Oh, I think that that that is actually fool's errand, but it's fun and it's going to be over very soon. It could be over today, so go ahead. But I still think you know that of all my conversations with Democrats all signs Seemed to point to Kamala Harris. But with the caveat that Joe Biden hasn't decided, and he often takes his time deciding well, 100 prominent black men signed a letter. Hoping they could make him decide that it would be a black woman because they said to him, you will lose the election. If you don't choose a black woman as a running mate, and this was entertainers, pastors, business leaders, athletes. I'm wondering more. If you think that Biden really needed that public pressure, it would seem in this moment in time. That's the choice. He'd want. Make one of these in class. That's what I think. I think that letter was really aimed. And Gretchen Whitmer. She's the only white person on that list. Everyone else is a person of color or black woman. So I don't think he needed that kind of public pressure. But it does show you that of all the people on the list. There is a backlash brewing to at least one of them in that's Gretchen Whitmer. You haven't seen the same kind of opposition public opposition to Kamala Harris, for instance. Oh, by the way, you're saying Elizabeth Warren is not in the running and I don't think so. Yeah, No, I don't think so, although she's a thought leader in the party, and she certainly has influenced a tremendous amount of his agenda. Of the Democratic National Convention will be all online this year. Wouldn't does that mean for the post convention bounce that the candidates look for Hillary Clinton got well, first of all, who knows Because nobody's ever run a presidential campaign in a pandemic. But most people I talked to assume that the post convention bounce will be very small thiss year for both candidates because they're not having the kind of big Excitement filled crowded conventions like we have in the past that being said the Democrats have had a lot longer time to plan for a virtual convention than the Republicans because they've been scaling. There's back for months. And the big question is, are they about to produce the best four night television show ever seen in history? Or will it kind of be ho hum? Well, and they will be competing in that arena with a president who is obviously trying to make the best television show. What do you make of that tweet that he may accept the Republican Nomination for president from the Gettysburg Battlefield or the White House. Both locations likely to violate ethics rules or just some people's moral sense of what's right to politicize. But you know, this is a president that gave an interview to Fox News inside the Lincoln Memorial, gave an interview at Normandy. What do you think happens here? Will certainly Trump isn't worried about offending people sense of what's right or wrong or any kind of norm. Now there are legal questions. Ethical questions about what kind of federal property you can make a convention nominating speech, your acceptance speech on and I'm sure the White House lawyers will be figuring that out. Is there some part of Gettysburg that he could be on? Without violating ethics rules. It's certainly a lot easier for the president to set this up at the White House, but he's clearly looking for the kind of dramatic backdrop not unlike Mount Rushmore that would give his campaign a boost. Quick thought from you, Mara on the fact that it's been primary season. It's primary day today for six states. The focuses on Minnesota, where the Denver Democrat, the representative Ilhan Omar, Is facing a tough challenge. Other progressive candidates have done very well this primary season. What will you be looking for here, right. She's the only member of the squad left with the primary. The four young progressive women of color and she has a really stiff challenge from an attorney named Anton Melton, Mo. He's getting a lot of money. There's been a certain amount of unhappiness with her. They've been attacks on her first for allegedly making anti Semitic statements. We know that the other members of the squad have not had primary challenges. Rashida to leave beat hers back very handily. So that's what we're watching today for the Democrats. Well, how does he do? Right and very briefly. The unemployed have now gone over a week. Without that additional money from the federal government. The president signed those actions and directives to address this. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow says the money will go out in two weeks. But he doesn't have The power of the purse. Congress does and they're gone. They're out of session. I think everyone's taking a big political risk here for the president to sign these executive orders and then have people not get a bigger unemployment check or still face eviction. I think that that he will be responsible for that and then members of Congress, including the Democrats, they are allowing people to go without thes unemployment checks, which, by the way, have kept the economy going in large part On Then they have stopped negotiating. Good. Not good. Not good. Yeah. NPR national political correspond. Mara Liasson. Thank you. Thank you.

Padma Lakshmi in Search of America

"David Welcome back to. thank you so much. I'm thrilled to be here, so your latest book is about drinking French, and it covers among other things, para teeth. The French have a very different meaning associated with that word. What is para? It's not just the cocktail. Well a para chief. It's the time of day between when you're done working and when you're going to have dinner, it's kind of a transition time you know the word comes from the Latin. You know to open up it sort of mentor. Open up your appetite for dinner, but in France also people eat late the alcohol. These cocktails appear Atif are not supposed to be like a sturdy American cocktail with three ounces of alcohol so. So, just describe what therefore and what they're like well a lot of the Pera tapes that we that we associate with France such as do bony lillay variously were health tonics had quinine in them, which one distiller told me goes it. That was the CBD of the Eighteen Ninety S. it was quite everybody wanted quinine. They used to have much higher alcohol content, and then they lowered the alcohol down, so they were more drinkable. Ice Cubes in them and so forth. And I think some of that might have been modeled after pestis. When that became popular, everyone was sort of leisurely drinking list drank adding to this class over the course of several hours. You talk about cafes a lot and you say I often referred to cafes. Is The living rooms of Paris? Everyone's welcome to gather there whether you're spent the night sweeping. The streets are working the streets. How does that play into this whole story about drinking and apparent teves well people? It's hard to underestimate the importance of a French cafe to a French person. I was I was in Italy a few years ago and I was like where all the cafes and there are cafes, but it not like Paris where there's like five on every block, just wanted every corner, French equal, or so into being convivial with their friends, meeting their friends, and they use cafes, not just somewhere to get a drink, but it's really somewhere to spend time. It's sort of like your home away from home. Well. We spoken about this before. But the you talk a lot about the French are really good at doing nothing in particular, but really enjoying the moment, and that plays into your whole book drinking from Yes. Yes. I I'm somebody that always has to be doing something and I really had to dial down my you know my own expectations of of my ability to just you know, turn off in. Just sit somewhere and be. Newsy and French verb to be. and. You know it's taken me a couple of years actually I can do it. I can go to a cafe and do nothing, but it's hard. I usually have to bring a book with me or I bring my laptop. But the French are very you go to cafes in. Someone's just sitting there for like three hours. And they're thinking about stuff. which is something that I aspire to? Let's talk about specific drinks you right? I marveled at the barrels of wine, left in the open Mediterranean air to intentionally oxidized became vermouth. I didn't know. vermouth is oxidized wine I. I thought it was wine. Our alcohol flavored with herbs and some other things you know all these things were the same to me. There were a lot of discoveries you know I always felt like. Like I know Vermouth, it's a it's a wine fortified aromatized wine with herbs and spices in it, and then I went. I went down to Marcel Annoy Lee Pratt vermouth is made, and they had thousand barrels outside, and they said yes. That's the flavor of our vermouth. The wine used to come from Spain on boats, and it got oxidized, and we wanNA keep that going. So, learning about what makes all these things different and interesting such as oxidizing wine intentionally for a year in the open air, give it a little saltiness and age. Surly the point, my life where I think a little saltiness in which is. Pretty pretty good I'm all for that, I'm making my living being salty in aged. At this point you and me both. You also mention a drink which you like. Call the long hello. Could you talk about that? Because that really appeal to me, but I love the name that was invented by a bar man called Damian Bolt. WHO has a bar? Really Great Bar in Brooklyn called Grand Army, and he came up with this cocktail, which has calvados in Apple Brandy from Normandy and then elder flower liqueur, and then you top the glass office, Champagne and a little nutmeg. And what's interesting about the French is they often say Oh, you should never defile wine or champagne like. Do not put ice in it do not. All these rules, and then there's all these drinks like the Kiro. The basically that you champagne as a base you know and they you add stuff to it. It's interesting because years ago, I went to a champagne dinner. With the owner of the most prestigious Champagne House and he said to me, you're better off putting an ice cube in a glass of champagne than drinking a warm glass of champagne. So. What's the difference between entertaining and France versus entertaining here in the states? Okay well. Actually read an article once for Ex pats about how to get used to going to a fringe party, because Americans are usually boisterous and lively, and are moving around and meeting people and having fun. Where's the French are more into discussions, so it's a different atmosphere. I, often joke like I've never been to an American dinner party. Where English grammar has come up as a point of discussion and debate and I think every French dinner party I've been to. Someone has brought up something about the French language people. Say Oh, you know you use the past participle of at, and it should be the imperfect. But my partners French and he told me he goes. You need to smile more. Oh. Tell! You don't smile and Paris because they'll know. You're American I was like I'm trying to look more friend. She's like you need to smile more. David Lee evinces outdone the French.

Cheriss May & Idris T Solomon

"Thanks for doing this guys for the last couple of weeks I have been thinking about what role I. wanted the show to play in terms of the dialogue that's happening. With this and I thought it was better than me. Sort of giving voice to it myself that it be a much better to have a dialogue with people is one of the things. I was realizing over the last two weeks outside of my own house. Old I really haven't discussed this stuff in. You know my wife and I have talked about how `bout it, but I really hadn't. Beyond that really. Considered? What kind of conversations I? I would want to have with people outside of my own home. My own faith and I think it is important dialogue to have especially. Amongst photographers photography are actually documenting. What's happening right now, but it will also lived the experience of being. Covering this. Just, just briefly I I experienced the LA riots back in I think it was ninety to ninety one. And one of the things and I grew up in that neighborhood I grow near arts in Normandy probably about two miles. My family's home is is there. And one of the things that I remember very vividly. Besides all the cast that was happening is the presence of a lot of photographers in those communities. Not just the photo journalist, but a lot of people who were just photographing independently. One of the things that really bothered me about that. Is that a lot of those people had never come to the community photographic before. That, many of them would not come back afterwards. And then later on when I would look at portfolios. like six months to a year later I would see images. That were made during the riot. But they were without any sort of context or any sort of greater egg relation of what had happened what led to those events happening? Changing and that's spurred me to work on a project. That I've been working on now for thirty years on downtown Los Angeles largely because I felt like at the time. This is years before it became what it is now in terms of gentrification, but it was a part of Los Angeles I had grown up in and I felt that had been dismissed to a great degree and I just wanted to. Use My camera to sort of illustrate. What I felt was beautiful, interesting about a part of Los Angeles that was fiving and important to a minority community here in Los Angeles now it's become gentrified in now. It's completely at very very different thing, but as I see the events of the last couple of weeks, I have thought very much the same thing. You're saying all these people going out and making photographs. And I just felt like you know us as photographers regardless of race. We have to think about. Not just the kinds of pictures that we make, but those pictures are intended for. And the impact it can have especially if those of us who are out there. Making photographs are not working journalists and I just wanted to have a dialogue with both of you. Because you guys are both working photographers on the east, coast. Photographing these events and Photographing. Events. Not only American society with Black Cultural Society before going to continue doing this. And I just to hear I your own personal. How you are both Alliott. Both are personally experiencing these events. And then we can get into much greater conversation in terms of the role of photography now and going forward, cherise, I think you can take since you've actually been out in a failed. Covering summit is now well I have to say first and foremost as a black woman have a personal stake in experience with what's going on. I have my personal stories of you know experiencing racism. I can remember as far back as I was in third grade. The was third grade when I I was called a nigger. From there I became more aware of that in. It has carried through to the woman. I am today. I've had experiences of being stopped. While driving my car in questioned, whose car is this where you going? Where do you live, you know? At broke. No Laws I've had experiences of male male family members and friends who have had violent interactions so having that personal story it gives me a perspective when I go in and I'm actually covering the current the current things that are going on now with the protest in the demonstrations that are happening all over. ME. What I will say is this time it feels different of cupboard, protests and things before, but this time it feels like the youth are really what what I've seen. What I've noticed is the youth are more engaged in their on fire in their serious You can see that there are so many young people out there. In their organized they have an agenda. They have action items. And they're calling for certain things to be done or they will continue. With the protests with the work that feels very different, because it's a stronger a stronger voice now the other thing I'm seeing that's different out there are. There are more white people out there this time. Whereas before it was mostly black, people who were calling you know saying. Stop doing this to me. And calling for change now you have white youth who were out there as well as I saw other people, too, but like I said it's been mostly like a younger movement in terms of who are really out there in the numbers with them. Having what experience yesterday was. They have printed out their agenda and these action items in. They've given it to their legislative representatives. They're calling them. They're following up, so that's been probably like the biggest thing I've seen. Is that the youth are more engaged which. May Have Time In. They're not giving up in there, not scared That's the other thing you know. They're not scared to voice the problems that they see. They're not. To demand for these changes. This time around of being closer to home and I've been watching. Some of my friends out. There believe covering this protest top to bottom in light was such a high level of qualities amazing. Is One of those things where. Fast, forward, twenty thirty forty years and twenty twenty is in the history books. Would be proud to say that I know a lot of top officials. Who when documenting this time in history? So I've been close to home, you know I have a five year old son, and for me. The question of should I be out there? Covering this or should I be here covering my son? and. That's been a big question mark throughout the last week and a half when. The protests began and last night was the first night that. You know told my wife I'm going to go out there. It will fuel events happening in picked when I was close to home in. Backed up mcgeer? Wait now and by the time I got is the crowd had already dispersed. I was online trying to figure out if there was something else happening now close enough that I can get to. And the social media feeds had updated at that time so I, just said all right. Let me just go home. When I got home I started. Seeing all feeds, update and I just. decided to stay home, but you know my wife was. Worried rightfully so I would have been choosing to go out after the curfew. Dowse set in New York, which means that. Just, walk into my car I. could have just been arrested. Just welcome to the car or driving Cardin I'm seeing footage of police officers. Yanking people out of the car the after curfew, so those are the things that you ought. To Take into consideration and you know I. didn't grow was father's radio home so the last thing I wanna do is put myself in this situation where I'm not at home for my son so. I do know that they are the ways that we can be protesting that we can't be revolutionizing. You know it's not just a one-size-fits-all type of situation you know on. We can revolutionize by reading informing ourselves equipment ourselves with enough knowledge and information today. The was not pulled over is anymore. Re can right you know contribute with words you know. I'm seeing a lot of photographers being jerked around with the licensing so so so bringing awareness to how can properly get business stuff to together Sodano? Getting jerked and we get the proper value for all photos does a lot of different ways that we can contribute to this protest without being in front

Trump faces criticism from former and current defense secretaries

"General James Mattis the former secretary of defense under president trump was blunt to say the least when he released his rebuke of the president yesterday evening he noted the similarities in **** tactics in Normandy to what he believes the president is trying to do nationwide during these George Floyd protest reporting on this in the Washington post is down the month who joins us on the commode whose identity afternoon good afternoon secretary Mattis had been pretty quiet about the president ever since he resigned in twenty eighteen was this an unexpected rebuke from him or had even hinting at something coming out against the president in an election year R. I think Mattis really did want to go away and and remain quiet as relates to this and any taken a beating I'm kind of in the political sphere in Washington for it I think would really change change the dynamics here was Maddox's believes that the military was being used as something of a political club partly with threats and partly with what we saw play out in the square just outside the White House on Monday where protesters were pushed away with non lethal weapons for the president's photo opportunity at the church and as a part of that group you have the chairman of the joint chiefs general not only in the current secretary of defense making that walk from the White House over so you've got this dynamic in this be topics where the military looks like it's okay with the way that played out the from the fallout standpoint yeah politically it it might not be an easy go for him but what about from current and former military leaders are they coming out with their own criticisms as well it's certainly not universal but but yes we that there've been quite a few others who have spoken up by general Tony Thomas come to mind thank you in special operations before retiring former chairman of the joint chiefs Mike Mullen with a four star navy admiral he spoke up and and since then you know what we're starting to hear more I I think one thing that that matter speaking up sensually yields that others who have been holding their tongue also start speaking up

The Anthony Fauci controversy

The Anthony Fauci controversy

"But we begin with doctor Anthony Fauci before the Senate and this cause all sorts of controversy not frankly I'm sort of perturbed at the controversy the reason being I don't think that she's a bad guy I don't think that algae is out to ruin the American economy I don't think they think that he's a malign influence on president trump I think the doctor felt she is up in the mail just and his job is the epidemiologist his job is to be a doctor of public health when it comes to pandemics his job is not to balance all of the risks and rewards when you go to a doctor you look for diagnosis usually the doctor puts before you a fair number of choices and it is now your determination as to which choice you seek right the doctor puts before you have cancer god forbid and the doctor says to you okay so you're the choices you could have a surgery here the rest and then the possibilities you have to know therapy here the rest of the possibilities are depending on your age maybe the best thing is to sort of let it take its course you're eighty five years old in your prostate cancer maybe the treatment is actually worse than the disease and I have a bunch of choices in front of you does not the doctor's job to make the final determination when it comes to public policy making our elected officials are reluctant to make exactly these determinations why well because they're answerable two weeks they are answerable to us there as we the people the fact that we are now looking to sort of delegate all decision making authority to the experts is V. is the tail end of the progress of the year a stupidity that suggested that if we just gave all power to the quote unquote experts in government and everything would magically we solved the experts are good for experts are good for exports are good for knowing a lot of things that one particular subject but they're not famous for knowing lots of things that lots of particular subject if you ask doctor about you about Keynesian verses Milton Friedman ask economics my guess is that he wouldn't know much more than the average guy but if you ask me about disease vectors and probably knows a lot more than the average guy asking him to be the sole policy maker is really foolhardy and even doctor felt she knows this and so we sort of moved from the left to appoint Dr founded in government when he's not head of government what to use him as a club to wield against elected officials again are answerable all of whom are answerable tossed right the fact that people must want to do that and the fact that the people on the right are responding to that by blending felt use the voucher is to blame for lawmakers abdicating their duty and just pointing to vouching on what he's going to solve all our problems it's stupidity frankly I think the doctor felt she would be the first person to say that it's stupidity he is there to provide medical knowledge and guidance and then it is up to us to determine what risks we're willing to undertake as a society what this means that when people I talk about you in public health experts testify publicly they're always going to testify on behalf of caution because their job is first do no harm on the public health level not an economic level not on the freedom level not a constitutional level not a governmental level the first job is to say how do we save the most lives well into middle of pandemic the easy answer if you're not looking at any of the other factors is stay home until we have some sort of therapeutic or until we have some sort of acting but of course there are other factors to take into account when it comes to public policy making such as the fact that we may never have that team or therapeutic may not be all that effective and the fact that thirty million people lost their jobs in the last six weeks and there are countervailing cost to people losing their jobs losing their livelihood a hundred thousand small businesses shutting out this is where it's at for public of our public officials the people who actually elect elected officials to weigh the evidence the doctor vouchers providing his advice but the evidence provided by economist with the values that we hold dear as a nation I mean it just takes a second for example for a second in a wartime what if you were to ask a public health expert in war time what is the best policy public health experts job is to save as many lives as possible so the public health experts say best strategy here is probably not to do the war right no war is good because that means few people are gonna get shot and killed but if you are not an official in his World War two you know that they're gonna be a certain number of people we're gonna have to risk their lives on the beaches of Normandy it is not to suggest that the public health experts are wrong about everything this is to suggest that everybody has their own specific area of expertise and we're this means a broad area of expertise is really foolish in a Republic we rely on the notion that a diffuse level a value judgment among the American population is gonna be better than any one individual's values the American people overall are going to be wiser about weighing all these factors in balance when they elect people then just one guy who's part of the bureaucracy we'll get to a doctor found had to say is it in that light I don't think what you had to say was all that controversial but I think they're politicians were completely looking to abdicate responsibility for their actual decision making role in American politics right now and simply shouting data and science and public health officials without you saying look what will brexit saying look at all the scientists are saying Hey that's not your only job is supposed to take all that into consideration and then you are supposed to wear all of the values that are currently under consideration plus you're supposed to determine the the level of certainty that public health officials are expressing about the view in the future about the future generally because experts maybe more expert than you but that does not mean that one hundred percent certain knowledge of the

"The bell rose Normandy off ramp were they bailed for the freeway. So expect a parameter to be set up. Up here with the the police as they look for the suspects four of the bail for this small SUV and the Hollywood area. But again, a lot of activity now up to Hollywood free. A lot of looks like a lot of these officers are exiting the freeway right now at Melrose Normandy. But again a lot of police activity. They're going to be looking for the suspects throughout surface streets and the Hollywood area does back. Yeah. Yeah. And we can see the one of the authorities. Choppers overhead. They have a visual on several of the suspects. We hit thought that there was four. I think I actually saw five people inside that car. So yeah, we thought so too for a second. And then now we only see the over another fence now four of them. They've all got black guys on bell right now. Just fell down. But the the it looks like the authorities in their chopper do have a visual on they were trying to hide in a garage. They're they're hopping over walls right now. So hopefully, at this point, it should just be a matter of time for LAPD to coordinate their location from the air to units on the ground, and hopefully, they can get units in place very quickly but going between people's backyards, maybe they're trying to get into one of the homes there for a second there when they were that a duplex with the garage, and then they opened it up, and there was a car inside. We all oh, they're going to maybe they'd have the keys to this. Right. But no now they're back underneath looks like kind of a carport area. Right. And maybe an apartment building says it looks like off of Kingsley drive from what what we're looking like here in the Hollywood area. So just at least we can breathe a sigh of relief that we don't have a car flying eighty miles an hour the wrong direction on violent anymore in north Hollywood. That being said, what do you advise people in the area? I'm guessing the, you know, shelter in place policy would apply here. But then who's who may be in this neighborhood and people hopping? Fences, maybe coming towards you. What should they do? I'll definitely lock your doors, and you know, keep an eye out. And if you have, you know, a visual of some suspicious activity definitely wanna give the Hollywood division of LAPD called because they could certainly use some assistance, but definitely stay inside and lock your doors. Obviously, the the the safest thing at this point. Yeah. Going through the backyard just kind of walking around and interesting in the sense that they all stuck together. Because usually when we see, you know, the car goes up onto the dirt and everybody bails out a different direction, and you try and follow one of them. But all these four guys maybe the fifth got away, but all these four sticking together and going through these kind of tiny slim backyard. So we lost sight for right now. The other hand they're all pretty fleet of foot to they're they're getting over these fences with relative ease. So I've is is could be a tricky task especially if they split up how the police are gonna handle a corralling all them. Yeah. I'm seeing that this is the seven hundred block of Kingsley. Drive near seven thirteen. Kingsley drive. So this is just south of the one freeway off of Melrose as well. So if you're around Melrose Kingsley or a Normandy boulevard, you're probably going to see a lot of LAPD flashing lights coming up behind right now as they get ready to set up a perimeter in China Napa guy, and this is the area where it looks like it will be because we have lost. I mean, they were on the move yards yard to yard and a couple of streets over from where they all ran off. But this looks to be when we get our perimeter. We're probably going to get it right here. Because and here comes the one of the cruisers right now because once they dipped behind this I dunno tenth twelfth house. So they behind we have not seen them come out the other side now, and it's starting to get dark, and they're wearing dark clothing is. Well, but we do see now some LAPD units. Scrambling off of Melrose and Kingsley and beginning to set up that perimeter, and they are actually pretty close to the last location where we saw that group of suspects San now, they have the spotlight on the area as well. So they're beginning to get the area surrounded, and hopefully, we can bring this to a safe conclusion shore one two three four cruisers. There goes the helicopter with the lights. Okay. So that's the story with this one eight is now turning off or turning into a perimeter kind of standoff situation as they go in and try and find these guys we're going to figure out what they do. Maybe they're trying to lay low in one of these garages if they were able to get into another one, but again four in this area. Melrose into Kingsley drive. So we'll keep you. Updated of exactly what happens with this situation here as we learned it from the police say it is five oh six here on k and access in order of business is this Kagan ex-king annex HD K R T H HD, two, Los Angeles. More news on the way. And it does also busy traffic day. Does do we have some other trouble spots? You wanna to talk about out there? We want to stick with this. You know, we we definitely have a lot of trouble spots out there. And I just want to say it looks like there was indeed five suspects in one of them took off. I'm wondering if that was the driver, and then maybe we got the replay. Yeah. The other group of four of them are all sticking together. Let's go up to the air and Elliot car guy sky five Scott and see if he could see if this has had any effects on the freeway or maybe a perimeter being shut down along a narrows avenue, Scott. Yeah. It looks like they are shutting out.

"Thousand nineteen dot com, and any type of donation is obviously appreciated, but we're all looking for that as well. Not just you know, the documentary that you know, might might part, but we support d day dog getting her there as well. We, you know, it's an it's an F a group effort amongst all of us were all very supportive of each other. Thank god. And even with Donny Edwards his group who's taking the veterans there. I mean, I give that foundation a lot of respect because that's what it's about is getting these veterans there to honor them. And thank them and letting them experience what they might not be able to. So I think it's great that everyone's come together, it is really remarkable. And certainly event that's worthy of you know, this punch as much work to commemorate into celebrate because the historical significance, of course, is awfully meaningful. And like you mentioned earlier about some, you know, younger folks, not really. You being knowledgeable or appreciating the meaning of just you know, what happened in those days at at that time, so helping to pass along the the knowledge to the next generations is I mean that's a worthy cause for sure. So, you know, say thank you for for doing that. Do you have an idea on how long it will take the post production to put the the DVD together? And and make it available to folks. Yes, we are going fall of two thousand nineteen. However, there's talk it could be Christmas two thousand nineteen. We will be submitting a short version to the GI film festival next year. And the reason for that is we're there's a lot of females that are being highlighted as well. And so I I don't want to give too much information. But I'm gonna give you an example, this gal, she's great. She is the first female to have jumped out of that's all brother ever. And she did that at the World War Two airborne demonstration team out for Recco. Oklahoma. Wow. Yes. It's pretty often. We've gotten already some great amazing unique footage that hasn't been done before. Now, speaking of hasn't been done before have you produced a film before. Or is this your your first foray into that activity? No, we've we've we have a thud pilots. I don't know if you've heard of pilots, you wanna watch great, doc. That's great damn dock, and I'll tell you why that is about you know, what it's about. No. It's about the F one. Oh, five on highlights during Vietnam. You know what I'm talking about? Oh, absolutely. If one of five which was the premier fighter bomber until you have four came into place, but it was also probably the highest risk thing because they were flying downtown and being shot up by SAM's in the air force. It was a single seat single seat originally it was a nuclear bomber. But in Vietnam, it was tactical bomber. And it suffered probably the highest losses of any aircraft in the air force. Yes, sir in most of our POW's. And you correct me were you know, f one five pilots, and this doc, basically, the gentleman that the pilots aviators had actually survived. It. It's told by their their own mouths. I mean, they it's a great document. You're gonna have to watch it it. It does scare director for scare with speed angels productions he's the one who actually it was a, you know, it's about as father Victor. Scare initially wrote pilot, and then they decided to make this documentary on his friends that also survived and their unique stories involved with being pilot. Hm? Yeah. I'm just looking at this. This seems indicate that this is a fairly recent documentary out in January perhaps this year, right? We'll yeah. Looks like Sud pilot dot com might be the the homepage fed dot com. I believe is Victor scares book that being distributed. Yes. But the pilot that is under speeding angels productions, and you can actually he's self distributing it now, but we're in communication with to distribution companies that have an interest. So hopefully that'll help with Normandy jumped thousand nineteen as well getting some funding. They're great. All right. Well, go ahead. Now, it just gonna mention the forgotten heroes who thought I met max through. But maybe it was Brian, and that's about captain ROY Williams, but that was a short film.

"Three thousand eight hundred sixty seven British in this recruit reenactment there max, there's your. Totals? Okay. Thank you for saying that we'd like to but realistically, probably not. But yes, that's that's we'd like it. I'll be at least they believed per one point four million spectators. There's an estimated twenty five countries involved and vintage aircraft. I believe dozens of those as of now they're still working on rallying up the other aircraft across the world as well. And working forward to it's going to be great now CJ, you're going to producer. You're planning to produce a documentary film of this and what what were your objectives in doing that? So thank you for asking with the documentary, it we are also going to not only talk about how important d day was for the world. But in bring in, you know, footage from the national archives. We're also going to be interviewing the act. Actual remaining glider pilots that we can find that participated in d day. We'll be also interviewing it remaining screaming eagles that we can find offensive brand is one of them. So that's important. And then we also wanted to let people know being most people, or at least my kids don't really understand World War cue because of the way that the schools are being taught. So our goal is to hopefully, educate our kids on how important d day was for the world. And why we need honor demeaning veterans that are still alive and still remember how important that was. And then part of the documentary was to also film what it takes to prepare for such a huge event in all that it takes to organize an event like this for next year. So part of that was to actually film, the Gump's gold that trains the World War. To participants the parrot. I don't compare it to you for some of them are paratroopers. Some of them are just a billion parachute. It's your World War enthusiasts that attend to school are different schools here in the United States. One of them is in Frederick, Oklahoma. It's the airborne demonstration team jump school and Colonel Steele. He's in charge of that school with the P weather's. But they actually they trained myself leave it or not could jump and be prepared to jump Normandy. And the same way you call reenactment some people get funny about that term. But that's what I call it to Kevin reenact what others did somebody five years ago. So was you attending this jump school a condition of you being able to produce this documentary, or is this something that you just thought was a good idea or something that you thought would give you an idea of what this was really like your idea or or was the requirement idea. What Colonel Steele? He is he's prior special forces with the United States army paratrooper as well. And he is quite the army recruiter in order for them to allow me to film, and document. They basically requested that I participate in the jumps go. So I get a better idea of what it's like to actually jump with the around shoot at a low at Dicky hundred feet, which is higher than what the hundred and first airborne had to do back in the day. And just so that I could document it best that way. And so that was part of the requirement. Now had you jumped before or was this the first time ever now. It's the most terrifying experience, I would never recommend for you folks to do it. Not willing. No, not willingly. You know? You're number one your solo. It's a static line. Fifteen hundred feet, you're screaming all the way down. You don't know whether to pull your Europe or not. But it was an amazing experience. How about the others had? Did you find that? They had some experience jumping before. Or were they all first timers, you know, most of the people there max wanted to be there and answer your question. We did have a wide variety a mix of paratroopers that were just qualifying for Normandy..

"Now CJ this event this reenactment of the d day jump over Normandy as we said commemorates seventy five year anniversary, maybe just a baseline everybody. Tell us a little bit about sort of the the historical aspect of this. I think a lot of people are kind of loosely familiar with d day. But the the folks who came in by air played an important role in that. Change it turn of events for World War Q, and you know, about all the bones. And and and all of that. And now that changed our life our world for the better. Right, right. David weren't there. Some I don't know twenty four thousand airborne troops involved in the in the Normandy, invasion, sir. Put me on the spot. There was a lot. Let's just say that. And let's put this in perspective. It was a early morning daylight jump, and it was a perilous endeavour they took off at night and in order to provide surprise they were landed in Normandy. But not on the beaches. But beyond where the beaches were where the main assaults were they were landing behind enemy lines with the amount of aircraft, and such it was it was a not necessarily a best attempt. We scattered troops all over northern France in that area. In fact, if you watch things like the longest day, there were parachutists that ended up in steeples churches, and in various far, and it took a long time that we gather all of the troops. So it was lots. Of c- forty-sevens between between gliders and paratroopers the eighty second airborne, primarily in one hundred and I both dropped for the United States over Normandy. He, and I think wasn't the idea David that these airborne troops were to secure things like bridges and road crossings rail lines things like that. So that the the forces that were to be coming up through the beach with have this stuff kind of cleared ahead of them as they has they advanced. That's correct. I mean like I said they were down behind enemy lines. They were also hooking up with the French who were rebelling and their job was secure to provide. Once the beachhead was secure to have a the link up with the troops to do a pincher movement to the Germans ever trapped between the captured beaches and inland to prevent. The German troop from getting back towards Germany now CJ to commemorate this event what we're going to be witnessing next year. Twenty nine thousand nine is is the reenactment of that to the extent that we're going to see a lot of historic aircraft, a c forty forty-sevens and others fly over to Normandy with actual parachute jumps from the aircraft. Yes. It'll be hundreds of paratroopers civilian parachuted. Well, members of the eighty second airborne and other paratrooper teens at from different FM allied forces and across the English channel and jump in the stork drop zone of Normandy as they did seventy five years ago. So CJ are you gonna get up to fifteen thousand five hundred Americans and.
