"Officials say the 6 men who were killed in a midair collision out of Dallas air show were experienced aviators with years of flight training, CBS's Omar villafranca reports from Dallas. Spectators watched in horror as two vintage planes collided midair in the skies above Dallas before crashing to the ground in a ball of flames. On the airport. Rescue crews rushed to the crash site, but found no survivors. Now, investigators with the national transportation safety board are combing through the wreckage, as well as videos of the incident, trying to figure out what went wrong. A preliminary report from the NTSB is expected to be released in about four to 6 weeks. Well, if you see or hear military aircraft flying above our area overnight, it's nothing to worry about. The North American aerospace defense command or norad says it will be conducting military training flights tonight, starting at midnight and continuing at about until about two 30 in the morning. The aircraft taking part will include air force fighter jets at coast guard helicopter, small general aviation aircraft. Some parts of the exercise could involve flights that are visible from the ground, norad routinely conducts exercises with a variety of scenarios, including airspace restriction violations, hijackings, and responses to unknown aircraft. Metro's silver line extension to dulles airport will finally open up tomorrow afternoon. And while president Jack Potter and metro GM Randy Clark said, you're going to like the easy tunnel from the train platform under a parking lot that you can't

"How many times do you recall people using derogatory terms to describe Donald Trump? Yet these same media outlets excused it. They are promoted it. They celebrated at times. The Washington Post, for example, remember when they defended Kathy Griffin, the comedian? Or at least she thinks she's funny. When she infamously posed with a fake, bloody damage holding Donald Trump's fake, severed head. They thought that was funny. The same year The New York Times published an assassination fantasy account of Trump being killed by a Russian assassin. They thought that was funny. So back to MSNBC. This opinion columnist haze Brown who wants to cancel the North American aerospace defense command 60 year tradition against 60 years we've been doing this. 60 years we've been tracking Santa to the amusement and to the glee of young children, and this clown wants to cancel it. He writes, no, I prefer we end the tradition. We call it just about time that we decoupled saint Nick from the world's most powerful military. American culture is saturated with desire to associate with the military with saccharine rights. We get videos of soldiers returning home to the pets or children but never questions about why they were deployed for so long or what threat they were fighting. And he goes on. Denigrating the military basically and what they do. He explained that he does not consider himself a Scrooge and does acknowledge the joy that the practice brings children, but ultimately ultimately believes the messier business of war that goes on in the background doesn't jibe with the Christmas spirit, he writes. Brown pointed to drone strikes that have called civilian casualties across the world and have developed or have helped military officials avoid the political headaches that come with massive ground deployments. And then he talks about again in amusement. What if norad had mistaken Santa, and what if one of the U.S. Military drones had shot down Santa? What would the media have done then? And would the world have thought it had been funny? One 806 5 5 Mike, one 806 5 5 6 four 5 three..

America and he moves fast stopping at nearly 400,000 homes a minute Stock markets are closed today for Christmas I'm Michael kassner You're listening to Bloomberg business of sports from Bloomberg radio This is the Bloomberg business of sports show where we explore the big money issues in the world of sports I'm Michael Barr I'm scarlet fu And I'm Mike lynch And let's continue our conversation now with Steve Young he's the chairman of the board of integrity marketing group and of course Hall of Fame quarterback and I'm sorry I'm not going to let this one go Mike lynch and Steve Young were talking off air and it was a great story Lentil you gotta tell it again Well I'll make it really quick I played I was a quarterback in the kicker at Harvard and we were the defending Ivy League champions and we played in a rain storm I kicked the field goal to make it three to two in the third quarter Cornell had the ball in their own 15 yard line they snapped it over the kicker's head he retrieved it 9 yards deep in the end zone and just ran a 109 yards for a touchdown It was the only game Cornell one that year And at the end of the day they fired their coach whose name was George seifert And then he went to the coach's convention in St. Louis and Pete Carroll came in and saw him at the bar and he said I just got fired from Cornell I'll never get another coaching job again and he wound up being on the forty-niners staff and when Walsh waltz left that he whisked two world champions ships he coached for he was at redshift He did So and once you build one three and then George one two That's right And you made a trip to Cornell I understand every recruitment One of my pretty trips I took the 5 trips in 1980 was the Cornell and I joke to I've never been cold on palliative there but I was told I've ever been a tutorial valley but bob blackman was a coach and if they would have given scholarships I would have gone to Cornell But the idea didn't give scholarships It was like free versus $10,000 a year I choose free So that was my big chance to be in a Cornell quarterback I would have gone to Ivy League if they but they couldn't compete with the scholarship but Steve you and I could have been alums of the same school I'm so disappointed Well you were recruited to play at UNC but you chose to play for BYU Obviously you were recruited at Cornell as well I'm just curious How do you think BYU student Steve Young would handle name image and likeness It would be complex I mean I'm very early You can imagine you don't have 5 bucks for pizza as a student And all of a sudden you're battling for thousands if not tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars And you're seeing other guys getting it And then when does that age you have no sense of what it's going to be in the future It's just me I got dollars in my pocket today And so and that's super cool And then you guys buying cars You've got guys lots of money And then I just it's very complex situation A lot of colleges are trying to figure out how to make it more egalitarian and kind of take the NIL for the team football is not going to look like that But I think some of the best programs I've seen is when they'll do an NIL for the whole woman's volleyball team Vince golf team Something like that And then kind of share it because I think that's the hard part is that when somebody in football is making lots of money running around campus And somebody is not It just makes it much more It's just it adds complexity to an already tough situation It can be a locker room divider can it A 100% You've got to be really on top of it as opposed to this got to be something that they spend a lot of time trying to figure out Because it can absolutely break locker rooms Or like anything that's complex it can actually develop some magic and do something really cool So the idea that we're putting money in people's pockets that they're playing the game is I'm not against it But I see it as an opportunity but a complex opportunity You had a lot of pride when we started the show and you were talking about your business and it's something that always kind of warms my heart because I love any entrepreneur who's willing to put it out there whether it's what you're doing or whether it's a guy owning a pizzeria or whatever it's that person that business owners saying this is mine This is what I'm trying to do That spirit of entrepreneurship Can you expand more on that and what we were talking about Yeah and I think that that's what makes America great Innovation and the opportunity to do that You travel around the world there's not a lot of environments where that's encouraged or allowed or embraced And so it's awesome And we need to really guard it entrepreneurial innovative spirit is like very important to and we can go into long as geopolitical conversation around just like what makes what makes America a great country and despite our affordable despite all our mess ups despite all of our flaws there are some things that really make it great And this is one of the main ones So we got a guarded But I guess what we're talking about today is I did this I own it I clotted out of the I tell any Don entrepreneur Any founder anybody that started a business there's nothing harder And when they've done it I think my cap to them And that's my business today is getting to know these folks that are doing this Many women that are clotted out of nothing and there's something amazing about it But I guess what I'm saying is that spirit of its mind and I did it needs to expand and kind of take the approach of Bill Walsh like yes but I can share it I can pay it forward I can figure out ways to embrace it for other people who can create an entrepreneurial spirit in their own way It might not be literally starting a business but starting your own careers and how I can give them this goes back this equity idea and what Brian did a couple of years ago it's really it's a flowering effect that even as I speak about it I know.

"Of the culture war. It's time stars. Welcome back to the time story. Radio programs have been orange in four Todd, our phone number 8 four four 747 88 68 before the break, we talked about that interview for the daily wire podcast Candace Owens and president Trump and did not feel like they were seeing eye to eye very much when it came to vaccines. Frank is in Madison, Alabama listening this afternoon, Frank Merry Christmas. Thank you for joining us on the Todd starnes show. Hey, Merry Christmas to you and God bless America. Yes. I didn't really see the contention exactly Candace and the president. But one thing is that I wanted to say about this whole situation is I think the reason that there hasn't been about the vaccines and what's going on is that we're not hearing both sides of the issue. We're seeing a propaganda campaign by the government pushing the vaccines, but there is a lot of very educated medical and scientists on the other side of the issue that's not being heard. And so like for me in the middle, I realize that they are not telling me the truth. The whole thing. And I think they would be more successful with the vaccines. Otherwise, if they would just go ahead and let both sides be heard. Frank, I agree with you because it feels very un American because one of the great things about the American medical system is I have the freedom to take in as much information as much informed consent and then make the decision based upon what's best for me and now there is an end around with these vaccine mandates and really in the short term a lot of people are hesitant because as you said there's just not a whole lot of information out there just yet, but this is America and if you want to take the vaccine, I believe it is fully you're right. If you are hesitant, I respect your decision as well. Yeah, and there is a lot of negative where something that I hear on the other side that we don't get to hear in the major media about the vaccines that are by we're talking about doctors who graduate from Harvard and Yale. We're talking about some people who know what they're talking about as well. So I really think that if they would just open up and let the American people make a decision, it would be a lot lot better. I think that is a great common sense point of view and we always welcome that here on the Todd star show. Frank Merry Christmas, thank you for listening and Madison, Alabama Dan and Hendersonville, North Carolina wants to talk about Candace Owens and Donald Trump good afternoon Merry Christmas, Dan. Merry Christmas to you. I just wonder who these people like canvas on and all these reporters who are in a world they think they are. Most of them have no idea what they're talking about. Mister Trump was stating his opinion and he is able to do it. The people in the audience booing were probably planned there. In my opinion, it's just as far that's as far as these people will go. So as far as Biden is wife is not a doctor, she's an educator. And why people even listen to her as far as medical advice is just out of my realm of understanding. Dan, I have a feeling that if it were Candace versus Trump that you would be picking Trump Dan, Merry Christmas to you and yours, and thank you for listening and Hendersonville, North Carolina. We go back to the patriot mobile newsmaker line here and we're talking with the folks at norad, not just any folks, it's our friend captain, sable Brown. Captain, thank you for joining me on the Todd starnes show. Merry Christmas. How are you? Doing great and Merry Christmas to you too. I'm a sad Todd's not here. I was wondering if he was still on the navy list. Todd is no longer on the naughty list. He's not only is he on the good list, but he is on the mend he is getting his voice back and he'll be back before you know it. I am looking at the norad Santa dot org website and the countdown is on. I know the folks at norad are working feverishly to prepare to track Santa, what kind of technology are you guys working on and right now what's the environment there? You guys just working like crazy and these final hours? Oh, you betcha. It is very, very festive over here. The call center is decorated and we are calibrating all of our satellites and radars to track Santa's sleigh and his team of reindeer and get ready to see where his journey takes him around the world this year. And I know that norad the North American aerospace defense command doesn't work alone at this because I know coming up tomorrow night, you'll be working in tandem with the FAA to make sure all of the flight paths are clear to make sure no overnight flights get in the way of all saint Nick doing his job, can you speak to how big of an operation this is? Norad track Santa is one of the largest department of the defense outreach programs in the world and we have a worldwide audience. And we can reach everyone around the world and tell them we're Santa is because of our partners that make everything happen from the website to the app to the call center. And especially those volunteers that come in, they're calling us as early as October, November, asking if they can take calls once again and tell children around the world. Where is Santa Claus? And captain, I'm a big tech nerd, so I'll be watching this as long as I possibly can tomorrow. How long what time Eastern Time do you estimate that the Santa tracker will be up and running basically when does Santa take lift off from the North Pole? Well, based on our intelligence, Santa takes off at about 6 a.m. eastern every year. So be ready. All right, we will have our cup of coffee. I will definitely be up watching that and the website is norad Santa dot org that is norad Santa dot org will have that on our live show blog as well. And Santa Claus, I guess he's getting all fueled up and he's ready to go and the technology at norad is gonna help all of us be able to track Santa and really you really need that evidence to show the kids. Okay, okay kids, it is honestly time to get in bed, get some sleep and thank you for helping parents like me and parents across the country and across the world do that captain sabel Brown. Thank you so much. Please give our best to norad, not just for what you do at Christmas time, but how you protect us 365 days a year. God bless and Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas, and thank you so much. All right, there's captain sable Brown from norad. We've got that link on the live show blog. 6 o'clock eastern tomorrow, folks, Santa takes liftoff from the North Pole. Hopefully he's got maybe a hybrid with it as much as gas prices are this year. I don't know how that dollar is going to be stretching from the North Pole, but be rest assured he is ready. He is loaded and ready to go and norad is going to be tracking him all the.

"And lily drugs, but they're building it back up. Guys, Meg, we were talking a little bit earlier about this idea of whether you could get the defense production act in place, and that could actually create a lot more volume of the Pfizer drug. As you just said, 10 million doses by the summer, 10 million doses by the summer, maybe too late. When we talk to Scott golly about this, he seems to suggest there was still a 6 month lag in terms of even if you started right now. It would take 6 months to really be able to ramp properly. The question is, is if you start now, it may be that by the time of the summer, you could get to a 100 million if you really went to it. Is there a resistance by Pfizer to do that? Well, certainly companies never like when the defense production act is used to force them to do something. Sometimes it could be beneficial to them because it puts them in the front of the line for materials and supplies. We saw that with the vaccines it was helpful to the companies if they were on that end, but it also has knocked down effects. Other drugs get pushed to the side. So it's something that people in the industry hope is used very precisely. In terms of the supply, though, Pfizer did increase its full year forecast for supply for the world to a 120 million courses yesterday up from 80 million. The U.S. is only order 10 million at this point. Could we see them increase that and when could more get delivered is a big question, but Doctor Fauci did talk yesterday about how complicated this drug is to manufacture and that it does have that time of 6 to 8 months for the active ingredient. And then finally there's an incentive question, which you just raised, which is those that are unvaccinated are almost I don't want to say have a greater incentive, but in some ways they will probably have access to this drug before those who are vaccinated. It's sort of the anti incentive to get vaccinated. I don't know if you read yesterday Chapman online, had made this statement that got a lot of people very upset, which was that he said, basically, that unvaccinated people should not be taken care of. I don't think anybody agrees with that, but how do you change that incentive structure in this case? Yeah, it's a real problem. It's an ethical question, but something we saw with the antibody drugs when they were in short supply too. If you got a prioritize the highest risk folks, that's folks who don't have the vaccine, so we'll have to see how that plays out in these treatment guidelines. Complicated stuff. Meg, thank you. Appreciate it. We have something of a holiday tradition on squawk box, checking in annually with the top secret military mission at norad, the North American aerospace defense command. Which fields thousands of tips and questions from the public about a certain flying object every December 24th. Santa was spotted over Petersen Air Force Base, Colorado Springs, Colorado. Let's get back to Becky. The recent boom in space tourism has the skies more crowded than ever, but that isn't deterring our next guest and her team from their mission of tracking Santa's voyage around the world on Christmas Eve. Let's welcome this morning, U.S. Air Force captain, sable Brown, who is a public affairs officer at the North American aerospace defense command, which is otherwise known as norad. She's also a member of the norad track Santa team. This, by the way, is the 66th year that norad is going to be tracking Santa's global journey and captain, thank you for being with us today. I would imagine that this job has gotten a lot more difficult over those 66 years because there's so much more stuff in the air, including all of the stuff that's in space right now. How are you guys doing this? How are you handling it? Well, thank you for having me, Becky, and yes, the job of watching the United States and Canada's skies is a little bit tougher, but we're able to keep up with it by working with our partners and allies around the world and in regards to tracking Santa. It takes a lot of contributors and a lot of volunteers to get that job done and they are happy to do it every year. So how do you guys do this? Let's track through all the technology that you have to actually watch Santa as he goes around the globe because this is something little kids have been so curious about for forever. Right. And when we get children that call in the op center, we give them all the answers about how norad tracks Santa every year. And it starts when he makes his first movements out of the North Pole. The radar in the northern Canadian and northern Alaskan Arctic area track him with those north warning satellites. And then as he moves west across the international date line, are satellites can watch the infrared signature from Rudolph's red nose as he flies around the world. And when he makes it back to Canada and the United States are fighter escort pilots, make sure to give him a wave and safely escorted him through North American airspace and then he heads back home to the North Pole to get ready for next year. I know we can all follow along by watching on the Internet on the website. How many people actually call into the limestone? Back in 2019, we had over a 150,000 calls. The phone never stops ringing. What do kids say when they call in? And how did this whole thing start by the way? Well, it started back in 1955 when there was a misprinted ad for a department store saying that children can call Santa at a certain phone number. But the misprint actually led to the conad back then it was continental air defense command. The call center there, a red phone that colonel Harry shop famously picked up and he went along with the call and so did the rest of his crew all night and that's how the tradition of norad tracks Santa got started. Well, it's a great tradition and we appreciate you all keeping it up this year. We'll be watching and we know you all will too as Santa takes off on Christmas Eve. Captain Brown, thank you so much for joining us. And good luck to you and your staff with handling all these calls this year. Thank you. And happy holidays and hope to see you tracking Santa with us. Merry Christmas, we will be. I haven't seen Christmas vacation, the movie this year. That's an annual app might be my favorite. I think, just because of cousin Eddie because of Randy Quaid, but you remember where they're at the table and Clark griswold says you know sand has been spotted coming across the border there. And he looks at him and just goes, are you serious, Clark? Exactly. But there's about a hundred lines from that movie that I use, I think of some of the other ones I've been using. Oh, yeah. Jelly of the month club. Jelly of the month club, given out, didn't get a bonus, already broke ground. Gift that keeps going giving every year every week, every month. Next, on squawk pod, don't let champagne problems ruin your holiday. Bubbly shortages hitting liquor stores, but food and wine's ray aisle says there are plenty of options if you know where to look.

"And even with young blood. To slow or reverse the effects of aging, there are also startups working on reprogramming cells. One of those initiatives at Harvard actually restored site to blind mice. There's even a startup focused on the longevity of dogs. Because if we live longer, only company. One of these longevity startups is Cambrian BioPharma. It focuses on human aging and fun fact, one of the cofounders has another company, a Thai life sciences, which aims to use psychedelic mushrooms to treat mental disorders and post traumatic stress. Anyway, here's Andrew. Here now is one of the entrepreneurs hoping to get an age related disease on a cellular level joining us right now is James Pierre. He's the cofounder and CEO of Cambrian BioPharma. Good morning to you. Good morning. I don't know. I would like to live for a very, very, very long time, but I'd like to live in a healthy way for a very, very long time. Where do you think we are now and what do you think realistically we've got in the offing in the next say decade? Yeah, I think this whole longevity field is sort of taking the BioTech world by storm right now and a lot of times when I hear people talk about the excitement behind the space. It's like, oh, we're going to make some magic pill that makes us live to 200 or something like that. And that's not really where the science is right now. But what makes longevity so exciting is that it offers the solution to what is currently the biggest problem in all of medicine today. And that is that the drugs that we have to treat the diseases of aging like cancer and Alzheimer's disease, they just kind of suck right now. They all involve waiting for us to get sick, and then they try to untangle that complex disease with one drug. And so in this longevity space, what scientists have done is they've discovered these drivers of aging. Changes to our cells that happen years or decades before we actually get sick. And that's going to give us the opportunity to go after these diseases proactively preventing us from ever getting sick instead of reactively. And I think that's going to be the most important paradigm shift in healthcare that happens this century. James, what's different about now? And the reason I'm asking the question is for years, as you know, there have been folks peddling all sorts of claims about longevity. We are at a moment where there's a lot of liquidity in the market. You can see that liquidity going to all sorts of new spaces. One of those spaces is this area around longevity. But is there something different happening in the world of science? Yeah, I would say that there's a few sort of trends that are kind of converging there. And we probably don't have time to get into all of them. But if I were to punch through the three big ones, is that the BioTech space in general is just going to continue to be a great spot for investment. We're in the world of COVID and we spent all of 2020 reading about clinical trials on the front page of every newspaper and we're learning about new Greek letters like today, but really the BioTech space on a fundamental level is benefiting from the sequencing of the human genome that happened 20 years ago and just now we're able to make drugs smarter and faster than ever before because it takes decades to go from that initial set of discoveries to drugs. The second big trend that I think is really kind of the why now for this space is that a decade ago, we just didn't understand what was changing in ourselves to drive these diseases of aging and because of the step by step progress that's been made across academia, we now have this list. Cambrian studies 13 different drivers of aging. And we've been able to create drugs targeting those drivers, the cellular changes that happen. And this is creating this space as a real thing for the first time. And that's really the paradigm shift that's happening. Hey, James, I'll see you stem cell PhD. So we can talk about this one thing and let me just it's a little in the weeds, but how do we focus on extending the life of the organism rather than extending life of the cell? Because you know what happens when you extend the life of the cell. That's not good for anybody. So there's the telomeres, telomerase. There's those ideas. Then you're just going to breed cancer. So theoretically, if you make a sell immortal, that's like the last thing you want to do. You want it to so how do you focus on the organism itself and extending the life there rather than the individual cell? Yeah, I would love to talk for you guys for like half an hour about this, but the short version is that if you target each and any of these drivers of aging and an intelligent way, what you get is not just an extension of the cellular lifespan, which is what you see when you give a cell unlimited telomeres and that causes cancer as you rightly pointed out. But when you target these in a smart way and fix the damage that's building up, you actually can change the what we call health span, the time spent in good health. Of an entire organism. And the field has been able to do that with more than 75 different interventions now. You change one thing, target one of these drivers of aging, and the whole organism lives longer and healthier. And so for each of the interventions that we do, let's take telomeres, for example, we run out of telomeres, little by little, as we get older. Right. But we've figured out a way to extend those telomeres regenerating ourselves on a cellular level without having to increase the risk of cancer. And like solving those problems, which wasn't possible 20 years ago, when telomeres and telomerase were discovered, but is possible now is part of this paradigm shift that's happening. That's exciting. And I would certainly like brain cells that last a lot longer. And then I was singing hair cells, follicles. Is there any way to extend just indefinitely for? It's something that when people think about aging, they think about hair grain and hair loss. It's something very, very popular, but there's probably commercially commercially near term something you can wear. I want to let it get back to ander. You want to be serious things. But send me some info on the hair stuff. Keep going on the hair. So the fascinating thing about hair just really quickly is that hair loss and like age related diseases aren't actually linked. So the things that cause us to age and get more likely to be sick aren't the same things that are kind of the causes of hair loss. So they're very, very different topics. We don't work on awful lot on hair loss for that reason, because we are much more interested in preventing cancer and Alzheimer's disease than the hair loss problem. But if there was a good opportunity that was related to one of these drivers of aging, we'd probably jump on it. So James, as you know, there's a lot of investors who are watching us talking right now. And they're thinking to themselves, I imagine, okay, well, what's the implication of this? Both in the context of investing in the space that you're in itself, but also all of the derivative implications of if people are either living longer in terms of actual years or living better, what does that actually mean? So I don't know how you want to take that, but I think it would be valuable to think about those two issues. Absolutely. So I think the top line here from an investor standpoint is that I watched this field not take off for nearly a decade because investors rightly said, you can't just take a brand new drug and run a trial for aging. It would just be way too expensive and take too long. But the cool thing about Cambrian, for example, is a business, is that we don't actually have a problem around that. Our drugs might eventually be used to slow aging and make people live longer and we're really excited about that. But today we're using them as treatments for existing diseases like muscular dystrophy or cancer. And that's how the $1 trillion pharma industry already works. You take a new drug and you run trials on a specific disease. The cool thing about Cambrian is that these first trials are just a stepping stone for us to build this completely new industry on top of modern pharma, which will be these longevity Therapeutics that can prevent the diseases of aging, make people live longer. And so this longevity part of our business model, it's kind of like a cherry on top of an already delicious BioTech Sunday. Maybe a delicious and investable BioTech Sunday. As far as the social implications and the societal implications for what happens here, I think we could talk about the philosophy of this for a while. But at the end of the day, if we had a pill that we could take, that lowered our risk of cancer, Alzheimer's disease, bone weakness, and getting a heart attack all at the same time. I think most people would do it. And you could even make an argument that as our population gets older and more frail, keeping people in their 60s, 70s and 80s, healthy and productive, it should be one of our greatest societal goals. And that's what I think this field is going to enable. Okay, two more final questions. One's a practical one. David Sinclair, who's been one of the sort of experts in this field for quite a long time, he takes metformin a drug for diabetes to try to lower glucose in his body believes that that's a major trigger and an important thing. He thinks he thinks everybody should be taking that. What do you think? Yeah, so David's a friend and I think really a visionary in this field. I think that the evidence behind using metformin as an early version of a drug to slow aging is pretty damn strong. And we're going to see some clinical results where I think it's going to be one of the first trials that's one of the first drugs that's actually tested in trials to slow aging. I think for people who are not giving medical advice here, but I think a lot of people in this field, especially those above around 45 50, are taking this drug because they see the anecdotal evidence that we think is then going to be played out in clinical trials. And there are a couple of other drugs that are sort of these imperfect drugs for slowing aging, but are happened to already be approved and already be safe. The next generation of drugs that have been specifically designed to slow aging by BioTech companies like Cameron, those are going to blow drugs like metformin and their efficacy out of the water. Great. No sugar. Let's go to the other side. And I have a glass of red wine every night and say, wow, this is for this is for to help with aging. Reservoir, right? Great. So there's this funny thing about rosa troll. The red wine compound, right? That in order to get enough resveratrol to actually get the benefits of flowing aging, you have to drink about a hundred liters of wine a day. All right. So if you're up for it, I would say go for it. Hundred later. Yeah. But interestingly, there are some compounds in particular red wines from southern France and Sardinia, for example. That have these compounds called polyphenols that are really beneficial for longevity. And scientists are going to do it anyway. You know, okay. A hundred liters isn't too much. Yeah. James, we could do this as you can see. We could have this conversation forever, and hopefully we will continue it and do it again soon. We wish you a happy holidays and thanks for joining us today. 6 months. I'm taking Christmas cookies for having me. Take a week off my life. Hair loss. Tied the high testosterone so don't worry.

"What's first, Josh? Only hours after the bodies of 13 fallen American heroes were transferred to Dover Air Force Base and what the military calls a dignified transfer. Our nation's vice president suggested to the State Department that America hold a candlelight vigil to memorialize valiant Taliban and Isis freedom fighters. Who had sacrificed their lives defending their homeland. I don't know where to start with This is totally insulting to all our military personnel who fought the terrorists. These terrorists weren't fighting for anyone's freedom, including their own. Their culture is Islamist dictatorship. That statement is beyond stupid. She needs to be impeached. U. S. MILITARY BASES HOUSING Afghanistan evacuees are building their own city type leadership organizations to deal with sanitation, food and other challenges as the numbers of Afghans coming into the US grows. Air Force General Glenn Van Herck, who heads U. S Northern Command, said there were over 25,000 Afghan evacuees being housed at the bases. He acknowledged there have been problems at the bases as they grapple with language, cultural and other issues. He said that he's building eight small cities. We're going to have challenges, he said, the basis of designated in military officer as a mayor to be in charge of a couple dorms or housing units. And an Afghan counterpart who can communicate about any ongoing issues, he said. Northern Command has asked the D O D for additional linguists who are fluent and can speak with the Afghans. Our military will eventually be able to house as many as 50,000 Afghanistan. Evacuees at the eight bases around the country and it won't likely need to tap additional facilities, said General Van Herck, who is also the head of the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD. Afghans at the bases are divided with single males and single females in separate housing and families walled off in their own sections, where possible to provide privacy. This seems to be a very valid way to treat these people since we don't seem to be doing a very good job in ensuring that these Afghans are really in the group that we promised to bring here. There are likely some active terrorists in the group. Dealing with them will be a challenge. In the final days of the withdrawal, the US balanced loading or destroying equipment with the need to evacuate people out of Afghanistan. Some of the equipment was taken out on flights demilitarized at the airport or destroyed in controlled blasts. A U. S official confirmed to CBS News last week that our military was conducting controlled explosions of ammunition at the airport to lighten the airlift load before departing. The pieces that were left behind at the airport and demilitarized were either too big, like the M raps, which can weigh 14 tons or were old pieces of equipment belonging to the now toppled Afghan air force that were largely defunct, anyway. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said. Quote they can't operate them. We made sure to demilitarize to make unusable all the gear that is at the airport. The only thing we left operable are a couple of fire trucks and forklifts so that the airport can remain more operational going forward, end quote. There is still equipment outside the airport that the Taliban took control of when it overran the Afghan forces in the lead up to the fall of Kabul on August 15th. Kirby said. Our military does not have an exact inventory of the equipment. The Taliban now has Our military and coalition partners evacuated over 123,000 civilians and what was the largest non combatant evacuation in our military's history? The operation ended one minute before the deadline of August 31st on the East Coast. The mission ended without completing the evacuation of U. S citizens and many vulnerable Afghans. There's a lot of heartbreak associated with this departure. We did not get everybody out that we wanted to get out. All told the Pentagon left behind tens of billions of dollars worth of equipment given to Afghan security forces, the U. S government spent $83 billion to train and equip the Afghan army, according to the special inspector general for Afghanistan, reconstruction. The Pentagon and White House had maintained that Afghan army ranks totaled 300,000 soldiers, but in reality, there were far fewer. So our government decided to abandon all this equipment and many Americans in Afghan allies just to run away by a fixed date. Why didn't we have changed the date? Why didn't we start taking things out? Months or years ago? You know, like the Russians did when they pulled out a couple of decades ago, We left a lot of working equipment. There we look like and are total losers. This is a total disaster by every standard. Oh, and I've spoken to some of the people still actually getting our people out their biggest problem. Our State Department. And that's the news. As Americans is our responsibility to ensure that our nation is well run and on the right path. Politics and politicians are confusing, but we can work together. Concerned Veterans for America can assist you in getting involved and getting our nation back on track.

"Injustice on campus all inclusive hosts honest discussions. That will lead to a more innovative future. Which is i think what we're all looking for greater creativity and more problem solving so keep learning and keep contributing listen and subscribe to all inclusive wherever you're listening now. At each american airlines flight seventy seven took off from dulles international airport outside of washington. Dc the boeing. Seven fifty seven was headed to los angeles like the other two flights. Sarah just talked about with sixty four people on board to pilots four flight attendants fifty eight passengers including three elementary school. Children selected for a trip hosted by national geographic. All five of these hijackers were flagged by security for extra scrutiny for one reason or another including that one of them didn't have a photo. Id and agents found them to be suspicious. The only consequence of being flagged for this extra scrutiny ended up being that they're checked bags were held off the plane until it was confirmed that they had boarded three of the hijackers set off metal detectors and had extra screening before boarding the plane. The screeners didn't resolve. What set off the alarms and allowed the hijackers to board the plane anyway and this seems unthinkable today and the reason that it seems unthinkable today is because we have all been flying in recent years in a post nine eleven world and i think this is one moment to kind of flag as a way in which our our everyday lives substantially changed after nine eleven when you read about the way security was conducted. Then it's just unimaginable compared to what we do now. The five hijackers boarded the plane at seven. Fifty a m two of them set in coach in three and first class. The plane was scheduled to depart at eight ten took off at eight twenty and reached its cruising altitude at eight forty six. Okay so this plane takes off at eight twenty at eight twenty four. The lead hijacker on flight. Eleven makes the first of two accidental transmissions. Now i also read that. There is some theory that the pilot before. I'm assuming they either attacked him or killed him. Press a button so that the transmissions would go to ground control before he was forced from the cockpit or there's some understanding that maybe he was trying to communicate to the plane's cabin but either way the made the first of two accidental transmissions. Now what is insane to me that i learned about it this time. Is that the pilot of flight. One seventy five heard these accidental transmissions. I think tried to communicate air control that there was a plane. Being hijacked minutes before his own plane was hijacked eight thirty seven. Boston air traffic control based on the calls from the flight attendants alerts the north american aerospace defense command norad northeast air defense sector. So that's just the sector that defends the northeast about the suspected hijacking flight. Eleven in response needs scrambles to fighter planes located at cape cod oldest air national guard base to locate entail flight eleven. They are not yet in the air when flight eleven crashes into north tower and there is some really intense audio of people thinking. Is this a test. No it's not a test. It's not a drill. This is real and the problem was that once. They said tail flight eleven. The hijackers had turned off the transponder. And that was a really easy thing to do is still assuming i'm assuming an easy thing to do from a cockpit because they have to turn them off when they're landed or else they wouldn't it would be a chaos of trainspotting with all the planes landed at especially big airports so he turned off the transponder so they couldn't find couldn't tell the fighter planes where to go to jail flight eleven also as you go through all of the agencies responses to this the idea of commercial flight being weaponized in this way was just new. They just weren't prepared for this at all so a few minutes after that alert to norad. United airlines flight. Ninety three a boeing. Seven fifty seven with forty four people including the hijackers on board took off from newark international airport in new jersey and route to san francisco. This flight was supposed to have departed at eight o'clock about the same time as the other three planes. It had forty eight thousand seven hundred pounds of fuel onboard so much more jet fuel than the other three planes. I think it's i think it's so important emphasized that because this plane being late being the one carrying the most jet fuel and being the one in theory headed for washington. Dc had thanks played out differently. The events of nine eleven. I it would have been. I think almost incomprehensibly more tragic four hijackers boarded this flight. There was likely supposed to be a fifth hijacker. The three other planes had teams of five but one individual in august had been prevented from emigrating to the united states by an agent in florida. Who the nine eleven commission believes was supposed to be the fifth team member for this flight so only four hijackers on this plane. One of them had been selected for extra scrutiny. By the computerized system that flagged passengers. At the time the security area lacked closed circuit television monitoring. So we don't know exactly what happened in their screening process and no one was interviewed remembered. Anything suspicious so at this time each individual airline was responsible for security screening and united had contracted that out. And i'm sure lots of other airlines did as well and so there were vastly different procedures in place in monitoring of those procedures. The four hijackers all set in first class one right by the cockpit to together in row three and one in rose six. The flight didn't actually depart until eight. Forty two so forty two minutes late to pilot's five flight attendants and thirty seven passengers were on this plane. That was well below the normal passenger count for a flight like this at the time. There has not been any evidence that the hijackers deliberately sought out smaller flights or bought extra seats to facilitate their plans. And sarah. And i were talking before you can imagine so many different scenarios at every turn. is you. Examine these facts so think as we talk about united flight ninety three about what the ramifications could have been if the flight had been full when the plane took off the crew was unaware that american eleven had been hijacked just before eight twenty five boston or realized that a hijacker on american eleven had used the phrase quote. We have some planes but no one at the faa or the airlines had ever dealt with multiple hijackings and people were just struggling to get their heads around what was happening. It doesn't seem to immediately occurred to anyone that they needed to alert other.

"Historically an army could have days weeks or even months to prepare for a war however with the development of intercontinental missiles and nuclear weapons. The time for preparation was reduced hours or even minutes in light of those changes. It was necessary to develop a system that allowed for rapid mobilization readiness learn more about the defcon system and the history of its level changes on this episode of everything everywhere daily. This episode is sponsored by scotty best. I recently purchased a new m one macbook air laptop. It's a wonderful laptop which is incredibly thin and light. it doesn't even require a heavy power brick charge. I can just use a usb cable. I say this not to tell it the device but the fact that it's the size of a tablet means that instead of needing backpack from my laptop. I can now carry everything with me that i need to work away from home in the pockets of my scotty. Vest jacket as technology gets later and center. scotty jackets. Just keep working better and better. You can get fifteen percent off your next order by going to us dot com and using coupon code everything everywhere all one word at checkout in nineteen fifty seven the united states and canada announced the creation of the north american aerospace defense command or norad. Their mission was to monitor the skies above north america primarily to detect incoming soviet missiles as part of the development of the command. They created a warning system so they could mobilize defense forces at a moment's notice cover. The first system they put in place was very confusing and complicated. It consists of three readiness level subdivided into eight conditions. This was quickly replaced in nineteen fifty-nine with a simplified alert system of five different levels of readiness. This was known as the defense readiness condition or defcon. The defcon system allowed for military units around the world to quickly adopt a state of readiness regardless of what conditions might develop on the world. Stage the con- levels are numbered from one through five country to popular belief. The lowest state of readiness is defcon. Five if someone says are going to defcon five on someone. What they are really saying is that they're going to stand down and become very peaceful. So what does each defcon level represent. Defcon five is the lowest state of readiness. As i write this. That is the current defcon level. Hopefully when you listen to this it will also be defcon. Five defcon five has been the default state of radio since the end of the cold war when drills are conducted their exercise names used in the place of defcon level. So there's no confusion as to the orders executed during the exercise versus actual operation orders. The exercise name for defcon five is fade out. Defcon four was a common level of readiness for icbm sites during the cold war. It's defined as having a increased intelligence watch and strengthened security measures defcon for might be announced if there's an airstrike and there's concerns about possible retaliation at a military base. Things might go on higher alert but most people would have no clue that anything was any different. The exercise term for defcon four is double take defcon. three is a much higher state of readiness. This is something that very rarely happens at defcon three. For example pilots might be in flight suits on standby next to their planes soldiers and missile silos might close their blast doors whereas most people even military forces might not notice defcon four. Almost everyone in uniform will probably be aware of defcon three. The exercise term for defcon. Three is roundhouse if things get to defcon two. It's pretty bad defcon. Two is the next step to war at defcon. To in the air the president is probably an air force one or is on their way to a safe location. Everyone in the world with access to electric media will probably be aware of whatever is happening if things get to defcon to the exercise name for defcon to fast pace defcon. One is basically a nuclear war at defcon one. There would probably be air raid sirens going off. The emergency broadcast system is probably blaring and everyone would be asked to go to a shelter. Any and all contingency plans for any level of government would be implemented at defcon one. The exercise name for defcon one is cockpit oil. I should know that the defcon levels only apply to nuclear war and not normal conventional military conflicts also defcon levels are not necessarily global specific regions or just branches of the military can be placed different defcon levels in the sixty years that the defcon system has been in place. There have only been a handful of times when the defcon level has been placed at three or higher defcon. Three was declared on october. Twenty fifth nineteen seventy-three during the yom kippur war between israel and several arab countries united states was concerned about soviet involvement in the war on the side of their arab allies. They wanted to make a sudden and dramatic to indicate to the soviets that they were serious and they would prevent such an action. They did this by putting all us forces around the world at defcon. Three reports from soldiers serving at the time indicate that most of them assumed it was a drill at first but when there were no officers around to observe they knew something was up. Us forces gradually stood down over the next few days and weeks with the last forces. Going off defcon. Three unav- number seventeen the next use of defcon three was in one thousand nine hundred seventy six but it was limited to forces in south korea. This was in response to the demilitarized zone. Axe murder incident which was a thing and is going to be the subject of a future episode. Few people outside of south korea even knew what was happening and defcon three status was only for a single day. The third and most recent time defcon three was reached was on september eleventh two thousand one after the terrorist attacks on new york and washington all us forces worldwide placed at defcon three while. The defcon system wasn't developed for terrorist threats. It was the only tool available to put global forces especially military bases on alert and to get them to secure the perimeters in the first few hours. After the attack there was a great deal of confusion so raising the defcon level was the easiest way to put everyone in a state of readiness. The word also went out. The defcon was a possibility but that never happened. Have things ever escalated to defcon. To the answer is yes and it's happened twice but in either case however it was a global defcon two level established. The first time was during the cuban missile crisis on october sixteenth nineteen sixty two norad and the strategic air command replaced at defcon two and all their forces worldwide replaced at defcon three. All the forces stayed at this level until november fifteenth when they stood down in the crisis was over. The only other time forces were put at defcon to was nineteen ninety one at the start of operation desert storm and this only applied to forces in the middle east who are in the theater of combat as for defcon. One that thankfully has never happened and hopefully it never will if it ever does. I'm sure you won't need a podcast or to tell you what was going on. Associate producer of everything everywhere.
