Why Front's Series C matters
"I'm Alex Wilhelm and once again I have have denny Crichton with me Danny how are you doing. I'm doing awesome. That is that's enthusiasm. You are back in New York. I'm in Providence and I have to say I've I've had enough of this shit. I want some summer but the good news is despite the terrible weather and the time of the year. There is a gazillion things to get to. So I'm going to skip the usual faffing about and jump bright in. I'm going to start the show with front which I need you to explain to me why this particular funding round was such a big deal. Right you'RE GONNA kick off the entire show that so start with why. Hi the Health Care Front. Raise fifty nine million dollars in series C and Here's here's the deal. They didn't have a lead. They had no investors. There no lead V. V. C. WE KNOW Vision Fund. No no sequoia. Although Sequeira did the series B. on they actually lead with a couple of really prominent be to be CEO and founder so lasting Cassia and founder Mike Cannon Brookes octa CEO and Co founder Frederick Harassed Multiplex Co founder and CEO. Ryan Smith Zoom CEO. Eric Yuen. What's interesting here here is is? We're getting to these late. Stage growth rounds at a time when there's more growth money than ever and basically said now we're good we're just gonNA take from really prominent angels. Who all of that exited you know? Kind of startups and. So what's interesting here is twofold one is one the dynamic. VC industry which we can talk about more but to actually kind of the strategy here of front is a B. Two B. Product Arctic. Selling to other kind of B2B startups and so by taking this money from other kind of B. Two B. Sales centered Start founders and see IOS. They're really kind of like buying. I'm from their own customers so to speak right synchronicity. That's connecting the two together. So the fifty nine million dollar round had no lead. VC there was no like Kleiner liner coming in here right in the big check. I'm curious do you think that the disease that previously invested got pro rata in this round or do think it was all just money from these I guess executives turned angels. I think they've got Harada me. I don't think it was in the press. Release that they did but I am sure they did. I'm also not entirely clear that these folks took the entire round. I mean there could have been nate. Twenty or twenty five million dollars slug from around that was announced yama funding from a farm that was announced But nonetheless like the fact that it was positioned this way If you imagine in ten years ago this sort of round first of all wouldn't exist but this ground where we would said Oh a bunch of angels came in late stage. It'd be like well. This company must be doing terribly wrong Novi. ABC was willing to lead the round. Things have changed so much. That founder can literally say God. We got a couple of individuals around at the party. At the craps table they put in fifty nine million bucks. We're going wow unbelievable. They said no to everyone. It's amazing change in time. It is but also I'm kind of embarrassed by the number of people I know on this list. Like I know Frederick a little bit I know Ryan a little but I know Eric a little bit. I think I've met J. I mean I think I need to change industry industries because the the same eight people keep coming up. That's embarrassing to me. I need any new friends. Let's talk about what the company does front is be messaging kind of calms thing. It looks like email works for teams. I'm assuming this is kind of product aimed at customer support customer success kind of groups. Yes affront fronts. Innovation was really for a lot of top companies they have an email like support at techcrunch dot com or press at at Google Dot Com. Which is actually how we reach out to right? And so when that goes into Press Google Dot com on that actually gets centered and moved around the the thousands of people who are in Google Google to figure out how to respond to it. So if he's coming from an ad tech crunch email address like from us he goes to our tech crunch contact if it goes to APEC Asia. Pacific it'll go to someone who's live overnight overnight overseas and so basically thousands of people are accessing the same email inbox and so. Have you ever tried to do your own inbox with g million. No it's basically impossible with one goddamn person on the box. Now you had an hundreds of people all of whom are interacting with the same emails etc and suddenly. It's just a complete mess front. Took that and said Hey. What have we built in box from? Scratch zooming that. There are thousands of people or hundreds of people reading the same tickets reading the same emails. And how can we respond to it. Really really effectively. Huge problem tons of companies have it. They've been super successful. It's only a couple years old and what's interesting is actually the the founders are French It actually has a large Parisian office one founder Laurent Had A decade and enterprise. And then WHO's also female be to be founder of rare breed unfortunately in the industry who CEO up and she. She kind of came out of her master's disagree in two thousand twelve and dived into this and front. So it's a five year. Old Company raised one hundred thirty eight almost one hundred forty million bucks. An insane amount of money ended the speed was raise capitals crazy because their series of ten million was back in May of two thousand sixteen. Then Bam sixty six million early eighteen and then two years later fifty nine million so really. It's pretty frontloaded or backloaded. I'm sorry to kind of where we are in time now. I'm curious to see how much more capital they'll need to scale this to IPO. It's already kind of there. But certainly a lot of star power a lot of customers on this new investment and. I'm kind of curious that this is a trend that will see a flex from companies. That were so hot. We don't even need venture capital all the real stars of our industry the money in It's certainly a new way to approach it absolutely. I think one of the key lessons here at least for me was a company that really figured out product market fit super early on You know if you look at it was founded Five years ago it took two years to build out so uncork. Capital is sort of a firm that argues it focuses on product market fit. They raised three point. One million seed in October two thousand fourteen and then once they sort of got this product market fit. And it's sort of obvious today but looking back in time the idea that there d the SASS product to fix this team oriented email. inbox was sort of not a concept of. Now it's just scaling right it's all sales scaling And so we're seeing the rounds. Get faster and faster. Because they're repeated you you know the sales are repeating assuming the growth is repeating internally. The numbers look great. It's sort of classic SAS business I expect us to see as one hundred millionaire our club as you call it hopefully in the next year or two that there hasn't been announcement around the revenues but I expect it to constitute here about their W. two and a half year over year now has a pretty quickly quickly there probably. I Dunno just guessing. You're twenty thirty million era or somewhere in there and they'll be largest soon enough. Let's talk about the couple world through a different Lens. Though you have been looking at Tau really large funds cutting smaller and smaller Jackson. We're talking about funds at have billions in assets under management writing five seven million dollar checks which seems to make no oh sense. According to the old model of larger funds larger textile works otherwise. They can't really disburse the capital. But that's changing and I want you to tell you why because to fascinating fascinating kind of like nuance about today's venture capital market. Absolutely free front is a great example of this right. So here's a fifty nine million dollar check that no growth stage investor mister. WHO has a billion dollars ready to deploy was able to invest it and so we're seeing once again The largest funds billions of dollars. We had we talked about last week. Show I think we had twenty-one fundraisers that were over five hundred million last year. It was ninety one somewhere in that category so a ton of money deployed and so the idea that you would do early. Stage investments is nuts. Because you can't deploy million dollars a thousand times a year and so the challenges is like. Why are people doing this when I started asking if he sees the answer was well once the the cap tables in the series B and D are out there? They're locked it in a sequeira already in the a benchmarks already in the a founders fund the and they have the capital to deploy in the B A C D E F g all the way through the Sesame Street Alphabet All the way through and so by the time you get to the D. you have no access or in the case of front. No one had access suicide. Basically you have to lock in earlier in earlier and so even if you're the Softbank Vision Fund you WanNa throw four hundred million dollars in series d you have to be in the seed or the series. He's A to start to lock in that Barada to start locking in those early ownership rights. It just gives you more ball control later on because other people are going to kind of knock you out of the way to get around in place and so there's sort of this paradox. Where we're seeing? You know the the largest latest stage funds doing the smallest early stage rows and so that that was a really interesting dynamic that we haven't seen before yeah and the one thing to keep in mind that when I was learning about the BBC World you know maybe a decade ago. Now I was always told that if you couldn't find a new lead investor for the proximate round the next one. It was a very bad signal because it would imply that no one else in the market one to lead your Siri seafood areas to be and having Europe preceding investors. That were leads lead. Your next around was a very bad thing. Now it's entirely flipped on its head because capital is sufficiently unscarred so ample so much flowing around the people want to stay in a company. Preempt preempt that next round they want to lead be and then the as much of the capital to work as they can on a winner to ensure that they can return enough capital to make their large fund contractive enough to raise a second one. So it's a facet of there. Being too much money in the market is certainly a change. Compared to how things used to work it's actually an inversion but it just goes to show how in twenty twenty the way the world works certainly is at least in my experience new. I'm maybe it was like this back in the late. Ninety something but certainly it feels like a new chapter and I presume zoom. Welcome back to what used to be normal when there's less capital around but I don't see that happening for the next eighteen twenty four thirty six months so this this is the way it's going to be Danny presented for the next while.

A CAmpaign To End The Celebration Of New Years
"Welcome to the promised by gas. Brought to you on T. l. v. one the voice of the city whose worthies and Burgers in the nineteen thirties launched a campaign against the celebration of New Year's which in mandatory Palestine as in Modern Day Israel was known as Sylvester the name borrowed from Pope Sylvester the first thirty third pope of the Catholic Church who was buried and in the catacombs of Priscilla in Rome on December thirty first and who was beatified on December thirty first date became known as Saint Sylvester's Day or the Feast of Saint Sylvester which feasts came to stand for the reveries of the night dividing the last day of the year from the first day of the New Year in Israel as in Austria Italy Lee Bosnia Germany Slovenia Slovakia Switzerland Luxembourg left in China Poland and the Czech Republic France Croatia and probably elsewhere as well now on December remember twenty seven thousand nine hundred eighty four for instance. The paper hired-in reported that the city had been plastered with posters quote sponsored by the rabbinate and the the Hebrew community calling for residents not to celebrate this holiday Silvester as it is foreign to the spirit of Judaism they ask the owners of houses of pleasure and cafes not to rent their rooms for these purposes and quote Davar reported in the same year that deputy mayor Easter Iraq who fifteen years later would ascend to to mayor addressed the city council about quote the question of the holiday of Sylvester that is setting down roots in Tel Aviv. FEE proposal of Mr Rocca was accepted saying at the city council of Tel Aviv sees in the foreign custom of Sylvester celebrations a definitely unwanted thing which is in opposition to the spirit and traditions of the people title of Israel and asks all cafe owners and owners of large halls in the city not to organize Sylvester parties. A committee was chosen to speak with cafe owners owners etc about this matter and quote a year later in nineteen thirty five the municipality itself published this notice quote the city sees itself as obligated to remind owners of cafes and restaurants this year once again of the need to refrain from having public celebrations in honor of Sylvester Eve. This custom to celebrate the holiday of Sylvester believe in public Jewish circles in the Hebrew city harms the national lifestyle that is taking form in the land of our forefathers. This claim is aimed also at the General Oh public some of whom admittedly only a few make a practice of celebrating this holiday with debauchery and loud social parties obviously the municipality and the the citizens of the city will treat with respect anything undertaken and done in honor of this day by those residents of the city and their guests who are not Jewish for this is their holiday and quote in a year after that in one thousand nine thirty six of our reported after the fact that quote several cafes such as the Lawrence and Savoy had special holiday programs in Tel Aviv. There there were many private Sylvester parties mostly from the circles of immigrants from Germany until morning. There was much car traffic and many walking on foot. One of these people who return to his home home after midnight under the influence of alcohol startled the volunteer firefighters with a false report of a fire end quote in nineteen thirty nine. The paper beaucaire made its feelings things about known with a one line article with a banner headline on page three the article in its entirety. Read quote on Silvester Eve. Eleven people committed suicide in new. You Work and quote in one thousand nine forty. The religious paper hot so fat reported this quote I witnesses say that a man of Israel at midnight in Tel Aviv especially in the North would forget that he lives in his own nation and land semester celebrations were celebrated in several coffee houses Jewish houses in the Hebrew city and whomever was indies coffee houses which elevated the celebration to the top of the top and drinking and debauchery would forget that we live in times of emergency. The New Year by the general accounting is not for us. It's the Jews. But it is a New Year for trade and bills and money's silvester celebrations are not Jewish celebrations in the land of Israel. Especially and only those who became habituated to these celebrations collaborations in foreign lands the lands of assimilation fail to Wean themselves of this habit. Even after they pass through all the circles of hell they returned to their iniquity in the land of Israel Israel. These are just one chapter of the spiritual and moral decline that is evident in our public life especially in the first Hebrew city the glorious tel.. Ah Vive end quote now to celebrate. Silvester Twenty twenty in the glorious Tel Aviv. There were hundreds of events for instance one could welcome the New Year with the Abba Tribute Band Carney or or go to Cooley Alma for their annual gala. Three for one Christmas New Years Novi Bash the bootleg was hosting a centers party quote unquote the hostile hosted hip hop new year's breakfast on Rothschild had funke Meli and these were just a fraction of what was on offer so grand was the celebration that the municipality itself posted this on facebook from the legendary Tel Aviv. EDM Club the block quote mayor e high. I don't feel so good. I won't be coming into work tomorrow and quote quote this post from Iraq Tel Aviv Tel Aviv municipality itself. Yes there was the battery in the city. All right one could pretty much find any form of depravity ones. Momma might have worn one against save perhaps for the badgering bullying browbeating of the burgers. About how you really shouldn't go to a drag show on New Year's in the first Hebrew city in the Jewish state and arguing nothing captures the spirit of the city. Well Tel Aviv. Dafa better than a tradition reaching back. Almost ninety years of offsetting the ideological severity doctrinaire rectitude a to enforce the citizen of the hidden who ain't kidding of joyless Orthodox Zionism and greeting each new year. Hal each new day with playful exuberance heterodox selective Goya's and lots and lots of alcohol and seeing the first Hebrew city is a place not just for spiritual fulfillment but also for fun fun fun and more heretical. Still Bill Finding spiritual fulfillment in fun. Fun Fun with us.

Oh very boring. I'm not a big New Year's eve person but it always takes me back to.

What was the only Sylvester? I was familiar lady Birds Sylvester the cat. tweet neighbors I was like what are they crazy about the cartoons. I it took me a while to like and still now when I hear about Sylvester immediately that like cat face POPs. What's up in front of me?

"Care stocks just aren't getting enough credit for the incredible fundamentals especially best offers like united health group seventeen she's a big administrative government sponsored health pets sure enough two days ago seventeen reported what I call a Nabokov quarter meaning not is fear while the company delivered a nice top and bottom line they also missing some key line I'm so we can over that medical cost ratio found that little niggling frankly the percent of the premiums they collect it goes to paying for healthcare but because the managed care stocks have and crushed by Elizabeth Warren worries and number was all they knew sock exploded higher than the new surging six point five percents single session teens now rallied nearly fifteen point from its lows getting month although it's still twenty seven points away from its highest stock is picking up some members so let's check in with Michael Mayer is the chairman president CEO of seventeen and my favorite healthy. are executive now that he's finally recovered from the Saint Louis Cardinals stinging defeat at the hands of the shocking Washington nationals but you're not going to make money the driver manager okay let's you so much for coming on this quarter was really what odd I think that you just get better and better when this next he'll closes right doing because you've really got a momentum enough and you also announced the by that which I think was great during sign there's a couple of I this was the ninth clean quarter we've had and the other eight we went down for Novi in my mind volatility with her this this was a very good quarter the buyback we have the optionality now that with the proceeds from the sale the socks the copies were divesting and we now have the option retired that or by backstop if we cannot like to buy back stock as a way to for the investors you do want to do well here's what I'm thinking there was a piece in the New York Times Tober eighteenth twenty nine thousand nine how pending decisional bomb care could up in twenty twenty campaign there's a very big federal appeals court decision coming very shortly could happen to this evening for I know we're going to be a lot of misunderstanding at I'm not sure of US knows which way it's going to come out but there are situations which could be very advantageous for seventeen that people nate misjudge but which is by stock when I we called WHO's our investors today we called when the Fifth District Federal Court was going to rule the way they did right now we think there's a chance that the appeals court could turtle we we know that if they don't it's going to the Supreme Court and we think Supreme Court were overturned not five four you'll be sixty or seventy two so We're hoping that the Federal Appeals Court Fifth District does reverse it they do it will just take an over here out right but you I'm presuming you're saying I'm too would be in favor of the four healthcare which absolutely it is the exchanges are shocking people right they're actually doing we're they're allowed to flourish they're flourishing in caution going down people like him and we'll retaining the individuals longer than we historically have though we're down about one point nine million we were staying longer all the time and we have eighty percent of the people each year renewing from the previous year so it's a product like it's where people want to walk in with an insurance card not for free care don't you think that there's been a miscalculation in the big broad presidential debate and lately just in the polls from CNN the other day it looks like the American people are waking up idea that maybe it will cost too much and maybe the care would be subpar on this single payer I was just looking at every other country you go to England they've had single payer forever and there's a private system equal in size for every time a politician I've said it to you before it's too much politics not policy right I tell them why don't you go practice on the postal system no you've had the postal system the private system they'll this this system is working people care they want a couple of employees in Italy and one of my employees contain costs in a single payer is withhold services I've had people in England Germany France as us to open up medical tourism spots in the former Eastern European bloc so they can go get the knee replacement of what things they can't normally get one more fast sure have to confirm this there I believe there are about ten times as many M is in Canada as find the Mayo clinic in Rochester Minnesota thing about this what that means if this four if there's seventy four in Rochester some of that nature there's only even forty two whole country I mean is there so's dynamics that's great numbers on post road now I go through this gigantic acquisition welfare I don't know how do it for instance I was okay so where are we now it's Illinois in New Jersey I mean every state do you have to make a presentation every state in why can these two states hold you up well they're not they're not going to New Jersey they seem to be last that's okay they they're going to the review right now there are some some things in Illinois it's virtually going to be resolved any time now I it's it's a clean it's very clean acquisition okay now the we're working with justice I any trust any trust is it's hard to see who's the states can decide how many players they want anytime and what the rates are okay what question do you think that people are beginning of when it was warn really raises less corn and more hell are people actually starting to get frightened about the the dollars that will cost you think it's starting to sing I hope so because the numbers I've seen that that single payer program Medicare for we'll have somewhere between twenty five and thirty eight trillion dollars over ten years here's the budget for ten years is fifty six trillion dollars they get about what that means there's the whole country would be it's it's it's I've said it many times it's politics not policy and you know it's very easy to have a soundbite medicare for all right it takes a lot of paragraphs explain bad all right that's great because you've been a source of wisdom and also whatever win what we're going to fail you told us to succeed now people want them and my family members included all right that's buckle night on Sherman President the CEO of seventeen

I was afraid that the new authorities in the government of the Ottoman Empire would try to restore Ottoman political power in Bosnia and Herzegovina as a WPRO Russia Serbia for control over the Sandjak of Novi Pazar and Bosnia and Herzegovina Russia itself was stabilized after defeat in the Russo Japanese war foreign minister of Austria Hungary alloys graph flex up on Arendal saw an opportunity for Austria Hungary to assert his dominance in the Balkans Austria Hungary's ambassador to Russia Leopold Graf Ferstl set up a meeting between Aaron Paul and the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Alexander Petrovich. It is both skis in September nineteen eight at Bouchon Arabia. What actually happened at the meeting is up for debate as no minutes of a meeting where release it is both ski. It says that Russia would not object to the annexation and an exchange Austria Hungary would not object to open the Bosphorus and Dardanelles Straits two Russian warships is Boesky insisted on an international conference before the annexation took place but on October six the day after Bulgaria declared its independence from the Ottoman Empire Emperor Franz Joseph. I of Austria announced that it was annexed Bosnia and Herzegovina the withdrawal of the austro-hungarian Armie from a Sandjak of Novi Pazar was also announced but is Boesky was not expecting the annexation to happen so soon he said that Aaron Thaw Paul did not tell him the date of annexation and that he did not know Austria Hungary planned on executing it before the matter was settled with other political power opposition to the annexation erupted in Europe Russia and the Balkans France Britain and Italy protested the annexation Pan Slavic nationalists nationalist throughout Europe. Were unhappy with announcement. Serbia insisted that Austria Hungary seed part of the Jack of Novi Pazar to them and Dan is Volsky supported them but Austria Hungary backed by Germany threatened to invade Serbia at the end of the Bosnian crisis ACIS Austria Hungary seemed to have come out on top after a boycott of austro-hungarian goods caused commercial losses Austria Hungary ended up paying an indemnity to the Ottomans and alienating many from Australian policy but the Ottoman Empire recognized the annexation which Russia and Serbia accepted opted in March of nineteen o nine the next month the treaty Berlin was amended to accept the annexation the nation's managed to avoid the war but tense relations between Austria Hungary Russia and Serbia after the latter two faced such mutilation remained and contributed due to the outbreak of World War One and nineteen fourteen.

US, Iran conflict hardening over attacks on 2 tanker ships
"Tensions between the US and Iran are again, ratcheting up as the US accused Iran of orchestrating an attack Thursday on Japanese and Norwegian oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, Iran, denied any involvement, and accused the Trump administration of trying to sabotage diplomacy secretary of state. Mike Pompeo directly accused Iran attacking the oil, tankers just hours after the incident. It is the assessment of the United States government that the Islamic Republic of Iran, responsible for the attacks that occurred in the Gulf of Amman today, this assessment is based on intelligence. The weapons used the level of expertise needed to execute the operation recent similar rating attacks on shipping and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency jacked with a high degree of sophistication. On Thursday night. The United States also released video of which acclaimed was runs revolutionary guard removing an unexploded mind from the side of the Japanese oil, tanker attacked, however, the president of the Japanese company that owns the ships that it was not attacked by mines, but to flying objects, he also said he does not believe any objects where tach to the side of the ship Iranian ships did approach the oil tankers after the attack. But according to multiple news accounts. The Iranians helped rescue dozens of crew members from the tankers the timing of the incident, also raise many questions as it came as Japanese Prime minister was visiting Iran and an attempt to bring Ron in the United States. The negotiating table. Iranian-american treat a party said, quote sounds like some are afraid Japan may succeed in starting diplomacy. The message of peers to be, don't you dare stand in the way of my war plans? Treat a party said last month, the US blamed, Iran for attacking four other oil tankers in the Persian Gulf, but offered no evidence will. For more, we're joined now by VJ per Shah, director of tri-continental institute for social research, chief editor of leftward books. He's also the chief correspondent of globetrotter he's the author of several books, including the poorer nations possible. History of the global south. Welcome to mockery now VJ per shod respond to it's happening right now in the Gulf of phone line. Hello, amy. It's I think important to bench into the woods you just used. You said that only hours after the attack, or the bombings in the Norwegian and Japanese thank the US secretary of state went out there and blamed, Iran hours of to, you know, it's very interesting. There's a kind of rush to blame Iran for anything that's been happening around the go. Full moves people who look closely at the oil business understand that fifty percent of the world's oil goes through the Gulf of law, Moos, the understand that, you know, getting oil is a dangerous activity, all kinds of things happen are accidents this by the see there, a series of it'll quite a common risks faced by all tankers. Iran is not one of those high on the list of Sparta's risk assessors are concerned. And the of course, this is the first thing, the United States government has said, as you said, without the evidence. So within a few is and without any evidence, the United States government wants more provoking, some sort of response from Iran, perhaps, or at least to try to galvanize public opinion to believe that Iran is a threat to the would what's really important here is yes. The fact that Shinzo Ave, the first Japanese Prime minister to visit Iran in forty one years. He goes to Iran ah shortly after the Iranian Foreign Minister visited him in Japan. In fact, Mr. Zarif visited Shinzo abbey in his home. They had a very important conversation with Shinzo obvious said that the Iranian nuclear deal is a factor of stability for West Asia. This goes directly opposed to the Trump adminis-. Stations view and what's very important here is we're not talking about a country, that's far from American the American audit. This is Japan, a reliable ally of the United States, which is not only reliant upon Iranian oil, but understands that, the warmongering in West Asia is going to be very bad, not only for Eurasia, but for the would and I think we need to understand that as Shinzo Ave is in Japan, this attack this several Taj. Whatever it is, is an rallies on the Novi jn Japanese tankers. And again as Shinzo Ave is in Iran. That's right. He wasn't there on the first time in forty one years, and he has been saying, actually interesting. This is a right-wing prime minister. This is not a person of the left he's been saying that there needs to be a return to the table. It's not only Japan saying this Amy. It's also the Europeans, the Europeans of very keen that the US not break fully from this Iran deal. The Germans in fact have been looking for noted mechanism for payments India, which is one of the largest budgets, Iranian oil had to back off because of these new very tight sanctions put in place by the US government. But the Indians are also not that interested in this new approach by the Trump administration. They would like to continue to buy oil. In fact, it's kind of 'isolation that the United States is facing its is related alongside the Israelis the Saudis and the United Arab. Emirates nobody else wants war. Nobody else wants this deal to end. And so I think it's really out of frustration that you see the United States jumped the gun come in very quickly and say that Iran is, is doing this, Ronn is doing that. And therefore, we have to retaliate. It's important to remember that in two thousand seventeen the CIA created a special unit. Call the Iran mission center run by Michael d Andry, and this is an important outfit because its entire mandate has been to ratchet up pressure on Iran. I don't know what happened to the Norwegian or thank. Oh, the Japanese thank good. But I'd be very interested to hear what the Iran mission center at the has been up to since twenty seventeen and runs. Foreign minister mohammad-javad reef tweeted Thursday, reported attacks on Japan related tankers occurred while PM obey Shinzo. Was meeting with our toll hominy for extensive and friendly. Talks suspicious doesn't begin to describe what likely transpired this morning, Iran's proposed regional dialogue forum is imperative. He said, VJ per shot. Mr. Zarif is a very capable diplomatic very reasonable person. He has been leading Iranian diplomacy, and has opened many doors to a diplomatic solution for the standoff around Iran. And I think we need to take seriously what Mr. the saying here when he uses the woods suspicious, I think we should underline that would again. I'm not saying what happened in, in the Gulf of our Moose's very clear that there are alternative explanations. We don't know what happened. We should be suspicious of the negative would forward by the US department, but we should also be suspicious about what happened, we need to ask questions, considered this form a regional standpoint, the United States, the Russians and others are in the middle of very serious diplomatic effort in Ghana stone. There are meetings of the US held in cutter, there are meetings that the. Russians of held in Moscow to dial down the almost nineteen year war that has been taking place in Afghanistan. Imagine if the United States strikes against Iran right now, it would bring catastrophe further to Ghana stone, it would open up the wounds in Iraq, and in Syria, Mr. Zuma's made it very clear that in a tack on Iran is not merely an attack on Iran. It's going to create even more catastrophe in that region. That's one of the main reasons why the Chinese are very interested in not allowing any kind of warn that region. They ever lauded stick, especially in terms of their belt and road initiative, which cuts right through this region goes three run. Nobody wants a war here. It's important for Americans to stand that the US government is deeply isolated on this issue of Iran. And on the way that the US government portrays, Iran in the rest of the would Iran is seen. As a stabilizing force in that region for some strange reason. The US government believes that Iran is an interloper. In other words, there almost eighty million Iranians who live in West Asia, and this seemed to be out of place, whereas the United States, which is, you know, thousands of miles away a portrays itself as a regional active. This is very bizarre for people around the world, and I think Americans need to understand it on Thursday, members of the House Armed Services committee from both parties said Pompeo told them in a classified briefing that the United States could use the two thousand one authorization for these military force or a you enough to attack Iran without congressional approval. This is Michigan democrat Elissa slot. Can we were absolutely presented with a full formal presentation on how the two thousand and one A M F might authorize war on Iran? Yes, I'm sir. I'm sorry, sir. Secretary Pompeo set it with his own words. The af was passed in the wake of the nine eleven attacks authorizes, the president take military action against those responsible along with any quote associated forces, your response to that VJ per shot. And what role do you think Saudi Arabia is playing in all of this? I mean look, this is very chilling. Very disturbing marching us into a war. In other words, they're marching the world into war. They're pushing Iran, the sanctions of attic, catastrophic impact on Iran's external revenues its ability to earn money. There is serious medical crisis inside the country, I think focus should be on that. We've already seen how sanctions destroyed countries how they put a lot of stress on the country, but that's not the focus of anybody's attention. In allowing people like Mr. Pompeo John Bolton. Another set the agenda here, you know, they're being allowed to say that Iran is the criminal country. Must be there for tact. I think this is very disturbing. Saudi Arabia of forces playing a lead role in this. I mentioned the Iran mission center, Mr Michael Andreas is very close to the Saudis. In fact, has. Played an important role in the drone program, and it's likely to have had some role in Saudi warned Yemen. So I mean, this is something people to consider this very quick, March to war must be stopped. The reason saying this is not just about Iran. It's about the region. It's about Eurasia and the Trump administration, I think is playing fast and loose with the facts and is being very reckless with world affairs on this in a we see the Trump administration behaving recklessly mercurially, perhaps in other parts of the world. That's true, but with Iran, I think the finger is right on the trigger and the very fact that bumpier gave this briefing should suggest to people that this is not the time to be cynical. Sick sit back and say, I don't think they're going to do it. It's very likely that the United States is going to make some strike on Iran, and that strike is going to open further the.

Trump eyes big trade pact with Britain
"One item on the docket for Trump's visit this week, negotiating a potential trade deal between the US and the UK to go into effect after the UK's expected departure from the European Union. The negotiations come as trade tensions arising around the world, the US and China have imposed steep tariffs on each other's goods last week, Trump announced new tariffs that would apply across the board to imports from Mexico doubt. The sort out the prospects of a bilateral trade deal between the US and the UK and to look at the historical context, we're joined by professor Dennis Novi. He's an economist at the university of Warwick. Welcome to the program. Thank you, before we dig into the history. I wanna find out from you. If you think there's a chance that the US and the UK will come to an agreement on bilateral trade deal that chance in my view is close to zero and the reasons are quite simple festival. Any such trade agreement would take many, many as to negotiate, probably at least four or five years. And who knows what happens by the end of that. Second reason is that there are some fundamental difficulties. For example, the US wants to open up the UK healthcare market, the national house service, which is a delicate issue politically, they also want to Oakland up the UK market for agriculture exports. That includes lots of regulation issue, foodsafety, chlorinated chicken as the big issue of contention, these very difficult issues. They've proven very difficult before. So I don't expect any slips resolution that because these issues go back a long time. So you recently published a paper looking at trade disputes in the nineteen thirties, specifically that countries began striking bilateral trading agreements like the ones being negotiated. Now why did you look back at that period? And what did you find? We looked back at that period, because people have been discussing this notion of trait wall as recently says quite natural. It's a look back in history and asking well what happened in previous. Times when we had trait was in the nineteen seventies is probably obvious point to luck. And it's quite interesting that during that time periods. What the trait was really did is they cement, it pre existing trading blocks in particular, the British Commonwealth. So you had the UK negotiating bilateral agreements, with, like, Australia, and Canada, and India. Right. And then I, I read you also a Germany forming its own block with, with members countries that it had relationships with, and the US did something similar. That's right. The origins of the British trading block really go back to what while one and a lot of the considerations are of a military nature, geostrategic nature. They were bottlenecks in some supplies, especially for the military. And that's why the British government was thinking more about how to secure its supplies and that happened on the German side as well. Germany was preparing for law. They were gearing up for wall, so they needed to make sure the half the right supplies, especially for the mentoring now. You. You write that if similar patterns play out today, we could see a quote reorientation of world, trade around China in US, Centric, trade blocs. How likely do you think that is? Well, it depends on the politics, the White House wants to have a mall bilateral approach where the US deals with one individual country as opposed to a group and China now wants to create a system of its own, so that does include establishing sphere of influence in Asia, and each of them will want to build up their own realm, where they have the power in the region. What do you think is at stake here? If this approach continues, what are your main concerns? The main concern is retaliation. We go back to periods where countries didn't coordinate that was very much the case in one thousand nine cents us, if I slap a tariff on new you don't like that. And you slap a tariff on me and whip both. Off. That's why after what, what to we had multilateral organizations to get rid of the problem, and now at risk of going back to the previous periods during the great depression, when people didn't call it, and it's trade policy, and everyone ended up being worse off. And I think that's the concern the international architecture, the institutional framework, foot doing trae policy might just break down, and it might become much more national bilateral, professor, Dennis, Novi of the university of Warwick. Thank you so much for
2 convicted of bribery conspiracy in college basketball corruption trial
"Are now joined by Don Jackson. He's an attorney now a very familiar with NCAA enforcement issues. Donna, how are you doing my friend just by our unit? They met doing good. So we saw some news come down here. Right. When it started that in the FBI trial for college basketball couple of guilty counts on bribery. But also, some not guilty counts, which I think are also interesting so explain to people what we should make the verdict and how to fix the college basketball scene. Well, I. The T as concerned this is step number one the guilty pleas from the southern district of New York case. And and also the current case, we're really third party that made payments to coaches allegedly Baid payments to bribe coaches to steer players to agents, financial planners, and and and in the case of Christian dolphins and a new a new agent, and ultimately, I guess with with a shoe companies with the goal of those players going back to the shoe companies at some point. But the interesting thing about about this case about the fact that that the Arizona head coach and also we'll wait we're not forced to testify. The fact that the issue of of direct payments to players or are you gonna end direct payments to players for the purpose to influence than the go to particular MTA members to she's really wasn't address in this case that was addressed along. Time ago in the northern Baltic. Boy bloom case in a Kelly court says the co pay with like that weren't illegal. They weren't trying. So the next step here will be the NCAA enforcement staff coming in to make the determination about whether or not these coaches or the university had energy grid of culpability for us the payments to to the to the players concern whether or not they'll be any kinds of sanctions imposed against the university. Standing approved in the committee on infractions case significantly, lower standard, proofing federal criminal trial. So we'll just have to see what happens with their own with LSU and the other schools that that ramp located through these through our taps. Well, you know, the thing is at the centerpiece of the reason all of this stuff ended up with the FBI with apartment Justice was this idea that the victims of these crimes supposedly where the universities that they were being sort of. Defraud it by by by these coaches in age, it's it looks to me with the fact that those earlier charges some of them were dismissed with the fact that Christian dockings was found guilty not guilty of some of these today that that whole rationale for this stuff all being in court anyway has kind of broken down would you agree with that? But that issue was addressed years ago when in the Novi waltzes Lloyd balloon case when when Nori Walters was was convicted twice on both in both instances and appellate court overturns conviction. And the judge the vote the opinion at the level of second time after you enter enter the plea said, essentially that the payments direct payments, like those that you were that he was accused of any made would not crimes they it without that without that, Don like Why's this even in federal court like that's the only way this is even in federal. To begin with it is. I mean, the underlying issue here is whether or not whether or not pay let's to student athletes, any type of pay any type of financial benefit afforded to student athlete.

You had to make sure that there was no other casualties in the house. It was vital for us to find out. What actually happened to them? Detective sergeant Nick Bailey was the first person to go to the scribbles home that night. He was wearing a full forensic suit. When he entered the house and everything appeared normal wants to come back from the house. The script was house. My my eyes pink Cuba's like pinpricks, and I was quite sweaty. And hot time, I put that down to being tired and stressed Nick Bailey to had come into contact with the Novacek, it's like oil sinking into porous surfaces and it spread by touch. Just a few milligrams can kill it only took a day for Nick to realize something was badly wrong. Everything was shuttering a very very unsteady of my fate.
