Some of his lines he and one line actually says this is in the the stuff for. Imdb i almost wrote it down. But then i saw it was here that judge and the orange skirt because it was a cheerleader camp. They were judging each other. They were trying to you know they were given away trophies and shit will make your pcp harder than a ten pound bag of nickel jaw breakers if you know what i mean. I don't know what that means. Let's just stop the podcast right forever if you wanna look a little deeper okay. Don't know you don't travis mckenna who we just talked about. Because he was jack. And roadhouse as names. Jack they i sure never said his name. He was an ex bodyguard and bouncer. Which makes imperfect for roadhouse but adopted. George buck flower as his uncle. Oh okay wait a minute. Can you do that by the way that makes him on. Google buck flower. If you look at george buck flowers. Imdb it's just bum bum bum wino- bomb homeless man bum. It's
Interview With Norsfell CEO and Creative Director Julian Maroda
"Let me just start. Generally how was three and summer fest and and giving people a bigger look at tribes as a both fantastic events for us In the sense that we had been kind of holding back a bit that showing what was going to be become. And we've been working on this game for so many years almost four years now rides from from the the first pitch indian to now almost releasing on july twenty seven on pcp five and just four and just having that ability and that platform to really showcase the game to all of these newcomers were just. Yeah just great. Fantastic opportunity finally get it out on in the wide and the north side. Finally being able to talk a bit more about it as well. You don't know that always seems like such a unique feeling win. The game was largely secretive or needle holding back details for the full reveal than all of a sudden. These vast amount of people are getting a bigger look at at. What is that. Like as one of the creators to have such a big audience can a feast their eyes upon it. Yeah there were. I mean hundreds of thousands of people. I think we went beyond the million on on the show So it's it's fun but it's also kind of scary of course is like showing your baby that you've been creating for the last four years also You're like my baby like please. Don't be too hard and overall the community has been who has been amazing with us Very or issued toxic comments which is always always repeating to read. People are enthusiastic can see the value of what we're creating and kind of genre we're trying to build and the response has been phenomenal. So we're just a super eager to keep on rolling with marketing campaign and finally released the gaming in less than a month now my god. I'm getting there.
A Positive Attention Economy with Adam Helfgott from MadNetwork
"Adam much joining us. Thank you so much for having me really excited. Approach me too and so for those viewers who might not be familiar with who you are. You want to get a little background of who you are. And how you got into blockchain short You know. I'm a kind of serial entrepreneur. Built the built sold a bunch of companies in the regular internet land I company was a god put summer camps online back in nineteen ninety nine and then you know how to fashion startup thousand six but in in Right around when bitcoin came out i saw early. Read at posts and whatnot and Was fascinated by it and I read all the posted. All this stuff. And i didn't quite running a business at the time and quite have the energy to really put up minor unfortunately back back in the early but You know kind of kept tabs on on the project that was declined back in the day and slowly got more and more into it. Invested saul invested sold but started getting really into technology and seeing what the technology can do right around the time of the cerium. Ico where i started doing some consulting work for other blockchain projects that were commercial. Land trying to do concept's flory be credit card companies and things like that helping. I'm a product guy build technology. I really know how to make products for the enterprise and helping you know various early projects and companies apply. What i know into what they know and make things it might might start in in crypto. Just have a firm belief that you know. Blockchain's are as important as Intervention as like the transistor was And like the same gonna take a long time for that kind of integrated change society but the cooler and more fun stuff that exists after. It'll happen so i find it interesting. Because i speak a lot of people in these conferences and it seems that this is a pretty common background people who are serial entrepreneurs who who were involved in the early adoption of the internet days building things on the internet and it seems a lot of those people people are now also in our building on blockchain and has been endless. Powerless draw between the two in terms of growth in the early days and adoption and the protocol layers. And this and that Do you find you mentioned you compared to two transistors And that's more of a tradition obviously a hardware but that that spawned obviously the computer age. And it's interesting you go back that far. I mean most people. I find compared to the internet. Why why did you feel Why do you view it as transistor and as the comparison for that more so than kind of this connective technology of internet. Yeah a question. So so the way. I look at it is the transistor was like the beginning of no allowing like automation With with basically build like to restart replacing humans with technology. Old computers were like rooms of people that had different that like that. There is like a person that they said caters. The here's the problem. We're trying to solve when break it down and give it to like this department. Solve this equation is that and then the output will come out some consolidation. That was a computer is a bunch of people and the same way. Like what we can do with blockchain's which is automated trust transactions and Whole slew of other types of automation. It's foundational piece in like beasley humans to do more Now that's how. I view it in that way there. So you know. Pcp is a layer on top of what transit software blocked our software. But it's cryptography itself as math and it's kinda you it's it's hardware you mentioned early on in this conversation that you're the product guy and i think that's a very product Answer very product focus. Answer now i think it's very fitting unique perspective on this industry and obvious technology because i mostly You know talking to the dreamers. But it's nice talking to the doer. You know definitely get that. You're the founder of the man network of. You're wearing any matt hive sweating to break down a bit. What is the madden network. Yes so so mad network is kind of like the is like the way i vision products and companies and things like that is like You know if. I'm going to be successful at something i need to kind of hold onto it kinda. Pull myself into it and the team into it. Right and ran network is a envisioning how organizations interact with each other in a in a high speed trusted way so You know the the way My my co-founder. Tom and i look at it. Is that that the advertising industry kind of paid for the internet to be built. You know google and facebook and all that kind of stuff like that like what we have now. The internet was largely the infrastructure built out because it was commercially viable to do that. Other months the government's they only go so far. And we kind of see it the same way for for blockchain right so. The advertising industry is kind of decentralized in the business version right. You're a media channel tons of other media channels. They're not. We're not all own jet by one company off the author interact with each other in pseudo trusted ways or else it all falls apart right and so you come up with all these standards in ways and you know in television sign affidavits and we go to court semi like a testings and so all that can be done with cryptography. We save a lot of times. They a lot of money. Smaller media channels can make more money. Less money goes to the intermediaries all the blockchain promises that we seen over. The past bunch of years is cut out the intermediaries and blah blah blah. We need we need application need actual place. That would actually happen. We saw. I've is a commercial entity that you know builds. Enterprise software for advertising. Mad network is the underpinnings of a new way to transfer to do that. Business and the goal is to kind of like overtime a bridge. Those together you know and and not just build something and hope people adopt it but actually build product enterprises that happens to us. Blockchain's yen this problem with this problem that you're providing solution to isn't at the forefront of most people's minds you know the the the average consumer or consumer of media isn't noticing this issue. This is more if you have a media company this. This is something that having behind the scenes behind the screen even like kind of break it down for viewers people who've never even thought of this issue because you're provided a novel solution to its gonna break a little bit of what was the old way of doing business here and the ad network in house different now because blocked not different yet It's starting to be There's an immense amount of momentum about you know close to like three to four hundred billion dollars of a mental every year that powers the existing wet right and so the existing way is basically people trusting each other and we all here especially the united states with our president. That's very concerned with ratings. Waiting is right and what a rating is is how much viewership a media channel gets right and so who and is this one application but something. I think that the person has not totally indoctrinated in the media. Space with understand that you know who makes the ratings and and so you know in the united states abroad. There's a company called called nielsen in that. Probably a lot of people have heard of that. Creates these These ratings at site. How many people are watching in the way that they do that is that they have panel of fifty thousand people or so states that are nielsen homes. All that data goes to nielsen. They crunch it and they say you know this show and this station had this much viewership and what that really means is that now. what the charge that advertising. That's why like the super bowl is like so expensive. The eighty five percent of watching super bowl and probably globally as well And so but now we're and that was a model built in the nineteen fifties. That worked really really well when there's like six media channels are less four really now that we have like thousands and thousands If there isn't a very simple if there isn't a way to price your media properly you need to like hand over your keys to like the kingdom to accompany that would like one of the major social networks are one of the major search engines companies like that. That can do that for you. And they'll happily do that for you. And taking a thirty to seventy percent of your revenue as well in order to like.

"pcp" Discussed on Jesse, Jordan, GO!
"That was something. I was kind of curious about the last time we talked to somebody. Who who twitched. Can you like get do people like help. You like beat something. The do when i first started playing. And i've always wondered if this is also like the atmosphere that i put off in the game because making a lot of jokes and i'm not like super skilled or anything but the majority of people that would come in the first time they would be like. I can teach you how to do that. I can help you with this. I can show you where that goes. And sometimes i'm all for it and sometimes i'm like let me figure it out. It may be jawara. And i'm just putting this out there. It may be that you are a woman. It's definitely that. I was dancing around it but you considered it no. It's definitely that i get that a lot. The oh i've had people even say like i didn't know that women played breath of the wild or like. Hey there's people in here you know it's only because you're a girl right. I'm like oh. I didn't know that women played brethren the wild. The most popular video game gets leisure. Suit larry. I don't think there's any element of game that would be alienating. The fairer sex trae. I think people are just a little bit. The internet is full of salty trolls. That just like to be upset that there's a woman on twitch streaming and someone's actually watching several people are watching do rather well for myself. So i quite the number of trolls. It's okay when you guys were talking about Immortal phoenix rising miles. Phoenix rising is the immortals. the series. Do they need the subtitle. It's the first one just going to throw in the subtitle in there for the next one is going to be called immortals. Phoenix rose than i guess falling. I interesting you talking about there. Being goofy zeus in it. Because i got done with this game. Haiti is not too long ago. Did you have played. Haiti's i like haiti. It's fun haiti's this great haiti's haiti's is a game where you are. It's setting the world of greek myth. And you are the child of the god of death and you have to get out of the death dungeon. It's it's kind of one of these things where you do you do runs. And they're kind of like the the. The dungeons are procedurally generated. So you're doing the same run but the dungeons are different each time and a whole jordan. Yeah is there a long part before you even get to play where zeus is just capping on. I know it sounds kinda rad though. But here's the thing. So yes you meet. Zeus you meet you know you. You meet diagnosis. You meet aphrodite. And the whole endeavor. And i'll be the first to say that i mean i think this is a popular take on the game. Quarantine might be be coloring this a little bit but it is a whole endeavor is so horny. It is just so you every time you interact. Interact with one of the gods then. It's not that the the conversation is not explicit. Known saying you know like tech out these checkout these balls or whatever right well. That's what i say. Every time i'm morning check out these vials feeling randy to my beautiful wife theresa i say hey theresa check out these ball really setting the mood. There got us up the mood. You like the senate candle and it's off to the races sweetie jack up these balls. You're just you're talking to them about the mission you're talking to them about powers you're going to get but you know you have to like curry their favor and it might just be a combination of the voice. Acting in the way that they're drawn they're kind of drawn. You know kind of heightened anime style and it it is. It's so horny. It had the fortieth thing. Everybody is just an an aunt and game. You can romance anyone you give them these nectars and then it improves. The rarity of your boons and the whole thing is just so. It's so horny. Yeah it's pretty wild. I feel like the whole time. I was playing it. I just like could escape into this. Like magical world of horny friends you know and it's kind of you know it's kind of beautiful when we're not having that you know that. Irl contact anyway jordan. When i was playing immortals phoenix rising. A big problem. I was having with zeus was capping on me for the commonality of my boons increase. The rarity of the mood. These boons are a dime a dozen you fucking clown under sitting there crying like cicis or something jesse you need to start handing out those nectars. Baby reese the rarity of the boons doing his role in this rock and having this eagle. Eat my kidneys. That happened have is a sissy. I right oh yeah. you're right. You're right roles you roller the. That's as punishment for getting burnt by zeus by sassy zeus. That's pretty sassy do you think. We got mama for mama's family to play. Zeus and immortals phoenix rising. I think it should be the jokes a little bit better. Yeah from what you're saying. Seems like mania nails joke like mama right. If she didn't she did not leave any meat on the bone when it came to chomping down those gags that is another one where like dorf on them. Like was that real. Can i remember one thing from mama's family like if you told me that mama's family was something that i imagined and something that you coincidentally parallel imagined right like the two of us are here. We both remember watching mama's family after school on television. That is not enough corroboration for me. I still think that we both coincidentally probably made it up because it is so bonkers. That this weird cornpone lake. I wasn't ever sure what mama was supposed to be. Was that a dude dressed up as mama or or a lady in a crazy old lady outfit can tell you. Don't remember enough about mama's family. Just i just remember that that it existed. Do you think it might have. Been someone from the carol burnett show. I think it was. I think it was. I feel like i know that about it. Is that was a spin off of the carol burnett show or that it was like wayne and garth got their own show or something. The carol burnett show is. I was listening the to an interview with carol burnett on fresh air and she just seemed like the greatest lady in the history of the and i was thinking about the fact that the carol burnett show is like the absolute most important cultural touchstone that i truly don't know anything about or understand even one percent. Not that i like distant. Don't understand it in the sense. That like i've watched it in thought. This is bad and then judged from the seventies not like that. I just truly know nothing about carol. Burnett at all. I watched it. When i was a kid that was like on. That was another like rerun really. Yeah totally it was like a syndicated thing was on like near. When batman was on adam west batman it was funny. It was really funny. I haven't like revisited as an adult. But i remember loving it as a kid..

"Dodge button. L'ecole time exact. Same experience i was like. Are these really strong. Yeah go try it. I was like all right. It just disappeared into a black hole. And i was like what the hell happened. This is the real question node jara about this so you said something that i found fascinating. Is you decided to become at least a semi professional twitch streamer without really having played video games. So that one. I have i've only been in. Twitch streamers since twenty twenty and. I didn't start out with the expectation of going professional. I started out as someone who liked playing breadth of the wild and saw that my fiance watched people play on twitch. And i was like. Hey if you make an account on there. Do you think someone will tolerate. Listen to me pride along like while. I play this game. 'cause like there's no one else to talk to when i'm playing this game and he was like. Yeah maybe to basically this is your sour dough your pandemic hobby exactly. That's pretty much what happened. I mean i feel like. I wonder jordan because you and i have you. And i have often speculated about whether we and specifically you should be a twitch stream or instead of podcast and it's always in my mind it's always run up against a fundamental problem. Which is. I could never remember to talk while. I'm trying to remember what the dutch button is. yeah. I really like when. I watched someone on twitch. I am like always baffled when they're able to both play the game and then like be entertaining. I feel like. I am just in such a like zoned out. Mind space when. I'm playing video games to put together a thought let alone. Something like funny is i. It's it's it's a kind of multitasking. I feel like i cannot do. Yeah my son oscar. My seven year old. He's the most interested in video games in my family. My my nine year old daughter is not particularly interested in my four year. Old is for your salt. Although he is interested in in zelda. He thinks that's he thinks that's pretty neat. He hates cannon. He thinks he's bad news. Smart kid my seven year old will like he'll be sitting there playing minecraft or he'll be playing deldar something he narrates it like as a matter of course i think in the twenty-first century most people just talk the whole time. They're playing video games. That's just part of it possibly. Yeah maybe that's something we will not recognize in our kids like why are you. Why are you talking while you do this. Why are you asking when our parents generation was like. This isn't music. This is just talking shirt. They're going to be like we're going to be like this isn't video games. This is just talking this entertaining. You're stopping interesting. Yeah i'm asking for subs. When i'm playing video games. Subway sandwiches specifically from subway sandwiches in general. You're specifically looking for that dollar foot law. So do that do jara in addition to streaming you also you do you tick tock so. I think that's how how we became aware of you as you make tiktok of our show. Is that your most popular tiktok to date. It's not my most popular one but it's definitely in one of my most popular went on twitter and it's one of my favorite old. People are the elderly social network complaining about. The president is the halftime show. Bad all right. It was so fun to do because obviously it was so spot on. We were dying because you stay like what do you talk about when you're playing and it literally is just like this guy. Where did he come from. This is a new guy this entire time. You're like what are you talking about. I'm just talking smack the whole time. Just smack that unfounded by skill. There's nothing there truly back it up but that's makes more fun. What is your most popular tiktok. I haven't tick talk. That is a lip with a duet with another block cost player using audio from amadiya movie. And yeah it sounds really weird. Stick with me really drilling down here jar. There's a lot of stuff in that literally is just the two of us standing and again we were in different rooms but the caption says like is in quotation. That says i never see any block cost players and then we are both waving. Somebody walks by and then the idea is like she don't see us like do you see me and it's like yeah i see you like what just happen. And it blew up over a million over a million views. Wow between the two of us kind of amazing yeah. It was really nice to be on was actually quite surprised. The majority of comments on there and there are several thousand or i'll just really really uplifting and positive and you know it's kind of like an avatar moment like knobby. They're like we see you. I see you mike. that's okay. We're all just searching for our avatar moment. Five spots and they find someone who's intertwined with mine. It was twenty years ago that jordan. I plugged our hair into each other. Were you while you were doing this. Were you were you 'cause playing at the time or you like yes. Yes i was cost played as zelda from breath of the wild. actually yeah. yeah it's my most popular cost play. It's my favorite one to do. And i actually started doing that. One because of my twitch channel. And i told my father is that if we hit three hundred people that i would cost plays l. dozens who were playing of the wild and it was so well received that was maybe i should go put on tiktok something. And that's how i started on tiktok. Wow previously you had just been playing as madeira. Maybe we should would like to see a comic con. If jordan if we go back to comic con i want to see some madeup koss play. Yeah do you think we could do a similar thing here. We say you know if this you know if we get one hundred went on..

"Also, there is a ballooning of the arteries. One of the major treatment is Is everybody heard the balloon therapy to different arteries to kind of open him up, right? Well, this is a ballooning of all the artists of your entire body. Interesting. So when you actually have that it actually creates where you would have Yes, some movement in the arteries. This one will knowing double that probably triple the amount of movement so there's a collapsing of the arteries. And then there's expanding. Grabs in expanding. We had a patient who was brought to me because he had over 90%. I've had several who had over 90% blockage of their arteries. Mm, and he was scheduled for surgery. His cardiologist came in. Said he will never get up off the table. Even though he has 98% blockage and some of his heart arteries and they said, Well, you know he would die anyway, so they brought him in to me. We started the E C. P And after we had done it, they said that it was less than 10% blockage in his arteries. Wow. I had another patient who had 90% blockage in her arteries. They went in and we're doing the surgery. They did one side she had a stroke. It was. You know, it was some damage that was staying there. They brought her in because they said that they couldn't do the other side because of the stroke condition. We did the PCP on her had it measured afterwards. And hurries were actually clear on the non surgical side than on the surgical side. Wow. So you know, with that ballooning in through there, you can actually open up the arteries. And actually have a substitute for having a heart bypass. Hmm. Right. So it is actually a very, very good substitute for that. It also helps with dimension because you're increasing the oxygenation to the brain. And it's also very good for erectile dysfunction. Because you're opening up the arteries, the Venus supply and as you can get that opened up, then that helps with erections. Mm hmm. Wonderful lot of things that benefits Yeah, there's actually more type two diabetes. We actually get people with reversal of that because it actually will change a lot of the hormones. And it also produces Angio Genesis where you actually have new arteries that actually grow because of the stimulation of the of the arteries. We actually get a change along those lines. And there's actually a stimulation. There's an increase in the hormones that actually stimulate new arterial growth up next..

"Reversing cardiovascular disease, So but the problem is is I have people who I sit there, and I looked at them and I said, Well, you know, you know what do I do about this? This problem that I have, Doc and I said We'll go out and run five miles every day. And of course, they all laughed because you know it took every effort that they had from going to the waiting room into the into the exam room. Right there out of breath. So that that didn't work. So what the what was actually done was developing machine that actually simulates the effects on the body of aerobic exercise. That's where PCP comes in. And what occurs with PCP is that there's actually a second heart. Kind of put into the into the body. It's on the outside, but as the heart goes into relaxation, that's what it actually gets its blood. So what we do is we actually have Ah, blood pressure cuffs around the legs. It presses on on the on the legs and we get a huge amount of blood that goes back up to the heart. The heart is very regenerative and you get about 10 times as much oxygen with this particular type of treatment than what you normally would And you'd get a regeneration of the heart. You also get a cleaning out of the arteries and you actually get a huge amount of changes in the whole physiology of the body. So all the benefits of robotic exercise were actually found an easy P, which are absolutely the number one way that you can be able to reverse cardiovascular disease, diabetes.

HOw The Microsoft And Bethesda deal Works
"Sitting there saying that you know they become part of microsoft wants them to be exclusive to them but they wanna be i well that makes sense and pull up their actual quote now my cut down part of this because what they wrote or what they said doesn't really make sense but they just kinda did some double wording. That really was kind of stupid and doesn't make sense but a long run. This is part of their quote in the long run to be either i or better or best or pick your different differentiated experience on our platforms. So that's what they want for microsoft. They don't want to cut it out at a sony or nintendo or pc or anything else but they want to either be i better or best or pick your differentiated experience. I'm like so you're saying you want exclusive rights to it and how specific content that isn't available on other platforms with specific. Sounds like to me. Is that what is that. What you here. Yeah but that's also not super super uncommon uncommon. This kind of like and it. Also not as greedy. And i i think just like why did you just say that. We want to have it to where we have almost exclusive rights instead of just some vague weird wording because i think with with microsoft's history of running into government bodies. They have to be very careful on how things are worded because it because especially right now with everybody. Worldwide wanting to break up tech companies Ala google facebook etc. They have to be careful. I that was perfectly worded. Basically saying you know and what they said if they want you know because the video games the past of had. Ps five exclusive playstation exclusive. Xbox exclusives and i think they're one hundred percent right saying okay. This is gonna come to the xbox for the first couple of months and then release on the playstation and you can get it on whatever pc you. I'm i'm kind of wondering you know lake so remember with oblivion. There was a lot of stuff that came out for. P. c. exclusively first before it was released to the three sixty mainly like the tower. Sick horse was horse armor on first and then it came over. I think they all were because back then. It was a game that was ported. The oblivion specifically was a pc game ported to the xbox and the controls worked like that because you were in a menu hell for longtime And when they came out with What you call it. The the skyrocket was a pc. It was a console game that was reported to the computer so the controls for the menus for simpler but now i thought the way they did it for. Xbox was pretty good the three sixty when they switched it over from pcp to to consul but there was still like a bunch of stuff. That was kind of like well. I kind of wish i had that. But then you know. I made my own work arounds and i kind of enjoyed that and then when they did mods for sky rim it was like it basically flooded the game and ruined the experience for me like actually literally. I couldn't go into part of my castle. Literally ruined. Because i put him on in there and then i can give the odd because i would have lost. A bunch of shit is really screwing me over. But that's but that's that that has always his original pc gamer. That was always the issue with mods because they were never vetted they were never there. Were always at your own risk. So that was always the thing that that's why when i selected mods and i still do. I'm always looking for stuff that seems to be low rant. Low headroom something. That's not like a giant castle in something that that wits that works within my playing style. But it's also not going to screw me and i've had tremendous luck minus a few things would doing it that way anyway. I had the trial and error that kind of stuff for a while myself. But i played the damn thanks fixed bucket times before before i actually did it and i i like the fact video games have mods now especially on the console's because that was the one thing i think that was the major separator between the two and so i i do i do like that
The Metformin Recall
"With a blood pressure medication. Losartan scientist had an online pharmacy was screening products for potential carcinogens when they saw an alarming pig in a probable carcinogen and Nitro Sada methylamine off India May levels. They'll Sergeant was recalled in July of 2018 and it was followed by the recalls of five other India, May contaminated medications, November 2018 the off-chance and two receptor blockers irbesartan and losartan September 2019 and January 2020 the over-the-counter reflux medicines Ranitidine and not seeing those recalls started hitting closer to home between May and October 2020 when the FDA recalled 179 batches of Metformin ER, So what is India May 1st what it's not ndma is not nmda. Nmda is well known in Psychiatry is the limit ergic receptor involved in the mechanisms of medications that antagonize the nmda receptor things like ketamine and Lamotrigine experimental antidepressants like amantadine resolved. Mantine dextromethorphan and drugs of abuse like PCP alcohol and two that have both therapeutic properties and abuse potential MDMA and ketamine these all have to do with an MDA which has nothing to do with ndma. These drugs reduce the effects of excess baggage automate which is toxic a little bit of glutamate in the brain is good, but too much is toxic. Back to ndma, which is also toxic but in a different way, it's a carcinogen that causes mutations in DNA and it is directly damaging to deliver even small amounts of deadly and there have been several prominent homicides where ndma was used as a poison resulting in death through hepatotoxicity on the other hand and the amazed everywhere. It's a byproduct of wastewater treatment with chlorine and that water flows through our tap into the soil where the ndma collects in the plants and vegetables that we eat. And EMA is also one of the reasons that were warned against eating grilled and charred meets. It's one of those cancer-causing nitrosamine is that forms when meat is grilled or smoked it's particularly high in smoked sausages nitrosamine Czar also found in beers. Cheese's sausages bacon and cheese. Foods that are smoked or pickled in salt. So how much India May these recalled medications producing with Ranitidine ndma levels Rose nine-fold higher than the odd for safety level four medications, but that's safety level which the FDA set for medication seems very conservative 0.096 micrograms per day. The typical diet is about twice as much ndma. And if you're drinking a lot of alcohol or eating Smoked Meats, your typical diet will have a lot more indirme in it part of the reason the safety limit is set. So low is that the FDI assumes that the ndma four medications is on top of the ndma already present in our daily Foods a pound of steak has three times as much ndma as the upper age limit for medications, but what really matters is cancer there the FDA is given us some data on the first recalled medication Valsartan if eight thousand people took those starting at the dog Some dos for four years while the drug was contaminated there would be one additional case of cancer. And remember that's at the max dose which is important because in Psychiatry, we certainly don't use the max dose of Metformin. We don't have numbers like that format form in yet. So that one in 8000 number might be slightly reassuring but when we're talking about things like cancer and lung damage, it's not exactly reassuring and we still don't know the cause of all this ndma contamination. The best guess is that it's a byproduct of the manufacturing process, but the proper points towards a troubling Trend in drug quality as manufacturing has shifted overseas in the past two decades. We are seeing more problems with medications right now about 40% of medication to the US are manufactured overseas and even when they are produced in the US around eighty percent of the ingredients come from abroad So what's wrong with going overseas? Well historically the US has had the tightest regulatory control of manufacturing safety and medications. The FDA has been the gold standard wage, but it's difficult for the FDA to regulate overseas manufacturing because they can't do what they do best surprise visits to get into another country. They have to work through governmental agencies and plan their trips to arrange these inspections and that allows the drug companies precious time to prepare for the inspectors. Most of the problems have come from manufacturers in India and China and if you're interested in this Kathryn even has detailed all the Gory details in a best-selling book bottle of Lies. We're going to be interviewing her sometime next month. The original Valsartan contamination came from a Chinese firm Sweet Pea this firm changed their manufacturing process and 2011 and am supposed to announce that to the FDA because it can create byproducts and things that might be damaging and would require new inspection but against regulations they did not announce the change in manufacturing jobs,
Dealing With Pilot Drug Tests
"Professional pilots, we have to deal with drug tests sometimes on a random basis, sometimes on a preemployment basis and you may be wondering how this all got started. Well, we have some. We have some druggies to thank. There was an accident in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, and I have a link to the action report in our show coach. Accident in Durango Colorado Trans Colorado Airlines flight twenty, two, eighty, six, crashed during an approach. Now is the CO pilot who was flying. He was a not very competent co-pilot who had an alcohol problem, but alcohol was not a factor in this crash the captain. had been reportedly using cocaine about ten hours before the flight, his girlfriend related to. Others that they had been doing cocaine together although she refused to speak to the accident board. So as a result of this president, Reagan signed. A bill. That required alcohol and drug testing of people in the transportation business, and that includes of course pilots. So there's going to be background screening and drug testing of all airline employees and what they test for is marijuana cocaine opiates. PCP amphetamines. And you have to take that test prior to getting employed, and then you have to periodically take it on a random basis as a pilot or as as another worker. For example, ground school instructors, air traffic control workers, aircraft dispatchers, a nation mechanics. Flight attendants, flight instructors and ground security people they all have to drug test. So now you've heard me say this before if you are interested in recreational drugs like when you're on vacation or it's a few days off or something like that, you might want to consider getting into a different industry because you need to be drug free the rest of your life while you're an airline worker or airline pilot. So you can decide I know marijuana is legal here in Colorado, for example, and. During during the long shut down for Covid may be some people here in Colorado were tempted to to try it because it'll get out of your system and a few weeks. Not a good idea. You can be tested drug testing on a random basis at anytime. I remember when I was a a simulator instructor. At Boeing I had a call one day said you have to go to such and such an address and be drug tested and you have to show up within I? Think they gave me an hour to get to that location. So, I drove to that location and I already had to I had to pee pretty bad when I got there and wouldn't you know it? There was this one facility and there were a dozen people ahead of me in line it was a very painful weight and then I finally. Got Scene and and gave my specimen. But if I had if I had said, well, just can't go or. I just don't want to do it now or it's not convenient for me that would have been the same as refusing the test, which is basically for all practical purposes the same as failing test. There are lots of things in the regulation that talk about. About how they treat you if you refuse or fail a test, it's not the total end of your career, but there are some it may be or it may not be depending on your circumstances. I suppose if you're driving to the testing facility and you get in the car car accident or something that would be a legitimate reason to not show up other than that, you need to go and be tested when they tell you on a random basis, it's time to take a test. So when I was a united airlines as a as a captain on the triple seven, there were several times when I. was randomly drug tested upon arriving back at Kennedy from a Tokyo flight. And I had no no apprehension about taking drug test what I had an apprehension about was it might delay me and I might miss my commuter flight back to. DENVER. So united, they would send this message prior to our descent telling us that we're going to be drug tested, which is a really neat thing for the company to do because typically at the top of the. Sent. Before you start your descent, everybody goes to the bathroom and then after you land, you might not need to go again for a while. So they gave us a little forewarning and then when you land in a case like that, there's someone from from management who meets the crew and escorts them to the to the drug testing facility, which is at the

While now his bragging has got him in jail has really Ms Fun Trail Baynes he's of Memphis and. He is expected to make his first court appearance in downtown L. A. on Friday. He was arrested in Vegas.

COVID-19 & the Medical Supply Crisis
"Marzan. Juliette. It's so great to have you on the dispatch. Thanks for being with me. We're glad to be here. Thank you so much. So you know in the piece that you guys wrote for the AP, which is just it's phenomenal and very detailed and seven months of reporting and so much work went into that Juliet I was hoping you could. help us understand a little bit of the process of your reporting. How did you begin and and how did you guys go about this massive subject I need. It really was one step at a time I. Mean it started when Martha we're looking around the country and we were seeing Cova. Spreading across the states and we were seeing reports of nurses, wearing garbage bags, and this advice to make your own mask or where abandon a- and we knew. That doctors and nurses didn't have what they need, but we didn't know why exactly and so we decided. Knowing that China had shut down because of Wuhan obviously manufacturing was shut down as well. We decided to look into import data to see. What's actually coming into the country? Because we knew that the majority of our medical supplies are made overseas and we it was stunning to realize that in March there were only a few shipments of medical grade ninety, five masks when we are seeing this demand, just go through the roof and we are seeing nurses and doctors pleading for protection. And so we really went from there and tried to figure out what the issues were far back they went, and so we really went administration by Administration to see who was waving the flag who was talking about supply chains who was warning about might happen in the case of pandemic, and so it brought back to h one n one but also we reviewed the Bulla after action report. You know we went through and tried to understand you know who was talking about this, and what we found was that supply chains are fragile but everyone knows that their fragile. was information that that people had and in order to fortify them, it just takes a lot and in our story. We spoke with former HHS secretary who said when the snake is not nipping at your ankles your focused on other things. And so for a long time, the US was focused on other things and then all of a sudden we found ourselves in a situation where people are dying and mass and the focus has now been shifted back onto this problem. Right I mean I was. You know how vivid it was. You all started our film was Sandy Oldfield. So you know broken supply chains have real life consequences and You know her story is one that will stick with anyone who watches it Martha talked to me about Sandy and that group of nurses that you guys met. Okay I, will start by saying. If I ever was sick. It would be that central Oldfield, who I would want at my side she sounded like an amazing nurse. Everybody Knew Sandy every lab x Ray the respiratory therapist. She always had a smile for them or a kind word for them. So these nurses in Fresno. Um. We're all exposed to Kobe. Positive. Haitian issue would tell us that she was going to go to work with no fear. That she knew that God was with turn he was going to protect her dozens were exposed. It was hard. Our morale was was pretty low We still weren't getting the PCP. On our on our unit, it was tough to feel safe. I. Even had made a commenter. I said just go to work shit like we have to that. We've already I mean, you don't just not show up you know and we're sick three were hospitalized and Sandra. Oldfield died from coded. She told me the dark is GonNa put me on a ventilator. I said we're going to be right here when you open your eyes. told her I loved her and. Got Was. The last spoke to her. None of them had adequate p. p.. They didn't have a ninety five masks because this patient was symptomatic and the hospital was conserving those and ninety five masks people on a Kobe. Ward. And they were demanding change at the time that they were being exposed on. Very. Scary situation for them very upsetting they you know they they were wondering whether it's really worth it to be a nurse. You know there's doctors or nurses who go into medicine and they wanted to like. Humanitarian Work in war zones, and then there's doctors and nurses who go into medicine and they WANNA provide care in their community and they're not looking for a big risky venture and. And yet KOGO pandemic has put them on the frontlines of some of the most dangerous situations. Medical experts ever have to get into.
Daniel Prude's Death Ruled A Homicide. He Was Restrained By Police
"Since the arrest and death of 41 year old Daniel Prude. According to his family, Daniel proved was suffering a mental health episode on March 23rd. When they called police to help prove who was unarmed but agitated and naked in the street. His family members got ahold of the police body Cam video late last month and release it to the public this week, sparking outrage and calls for justice. Body cams, capturing the moment showing police trying to calm them down, then placed him in handcuffs, put a spit hood over his head, kneel on him and reportedly push his face into the ground until he stopped moving. Who died seven days later, though he had traces of PCP in his system. The medical examiner ruled his death a homicide in New York. Laura
Black man dies after cop presses his face into the ground
"So there are big protests in Washington DC last night there was a a black man named Dion who was shot and he was killed in Washington DC? He shot and killed because apparently he was riding around the neighborhood and wielding a gun, and then he brandished a firearm and pointed it at the cops and then he was shot. A so that and then they they they were pictures of the handguns that had been found on the on the people who are running away from the police. That case has prompted a lot of angst in Washington DC. That seems to me a particularly noncontroversial case. But then there are actual controversial cases require serious attention. Getting serious attention because we still live in a country with individual justice in due process of law. So for example, there's a case out of Rochester New York. It looks really ugly on the face of it in which there is a black man Daniel prude who apparently was high on PCP according to the coroner's report and was acting crazy in his brother apparently called the police. He was forty one he was running around Rochester new. York. In the middle of winter completely naked the police arrive and they arrest him and the tape is really disturbing because they arrested him he appears to be basically complained, but he is delusional and he suggested he wants to take their guns, but he's not really making a move toward it. They they spit bag over his head is the middle of the beginning of. The coronavirus pandemic this happened back all the way in March. They put a bag over his head, those breathable apparently and and then he starts to kind of move and they jump on top of him and he stops breathing right so it's a bad situation all around like this is an actual controversial case, but we're not supposed to distinguish between cases or supposed to pretend that all the cases are exactly the same.
Coronavirus Impact on the Food Industry: Cameron Mitchell Restaurants CEO
"Joining us right now on the topic of small business and what he's seeing is Cameron Mitchell. He's the founder and CEO of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, which owns nearly sixty establishments across the United States and Cameron. It's great to see you. It's been a while since we've spoken good morning break plagiary back with you today. So. The first time we talked to you was in the midst of the shutdown when all of your restaurants had been closed down and you laid out a plan for what you were hoping to see. Two weeks ago on March third, I was in Washington DC to meet with my bankers and I expressed them what a great start year we had were up seven percent same store sales record profitability for the first two months of the year. This was March third tomorrow I believe March Eighteenth we will be completely shut down I laid off forty, two hundred people on Monday. The last time we talked to you things we're looking pretty good business was was back and was booming. I think we're going to survive, but it's going to be a while before we get to the hospital we expect to be open in hopefully back to full employment by the end of June or into or end of July somewhere in that neighborhood. So what's happening right now? The best way equate it to is we're in a hurricane in the first. Landfall, the hurricane was back in March fifteenth and. It was is detrimental as it was terrible. It's was We end up getting the money and we're able to get out and get open and it was a lifeline. We would not be here today if it wasn't for the original P P P loan and June came and sales, we're doing pretty good. We're about seventy five percent of last year sales were feeling very optimistic and and when I came to realize is we are really just in the eye of the storm and then July the beginning July head and and the case counts rising. Across the country and met, metropolitan. Areas Rolling back opening guidelines and in further restrictions on our business and sales fell down to now fifty percent of last year and that is just not sustainable. So here we are today you know August second and I feel just as nervous about the future as I did back in the beginning of March when Corona virus was coming over the horizon. So we're looking for a second round of P P P to help us get through the other side and and help us sustain for the future so. And the thing that we're hearing mostly Congress is about the stimulus checks, the unemployment but there are thousands and thousands of businesses like ours out there in the country they're hurting terribly at fifty percent decline a forty percent decline sales we cannot survive. We're losing between five, hundred thousand and a million dollars a month, and we need the additional P P P dolorous in a in a terrible way and you know the the curb puzzle is for a two million dollar cap on that which. last time was ten million dollars and so for a company like ours and many others that reduction of eight million dollars just when we need it, the most is is very difficult for us. Camera now is the decline in your business coming mostly because states or local municipalities have have forced you to not open as much into close things down or much of the decline is coming from people who Are, afraid to go out what and how would you measure that a difference while it's both clearly when you have a reduction in capacity from use spell. Example Beverly Hills we were closed all restaurants California closed for indoor. New York City we were not allowed to open our whole restaurant that was just for the Patio Philadelphia. We're not allowed to open that was got rolled back from August I now to September first. So some of our businesses are not even open yet So but the main driver of that reduction of sales is the increase case cow corona virus around the country and people becoming more and more nervous about going to restaurants even though there's no science dates that that says inherently restaurants, Kobe case outbreaks, her Dr Been Driven by restaurants seating. Indoor and outdoor see. Cameron. What? What are you doing in terms of your relationship with your landlords? particularly in some of those places, the restaurants haven't even reopened yet. Are you getting any forgiveness or any easing of things from them? Well, that's the thing becky you know we had almost all of our landlords help out in some way or another not all but some or most they should say, but that money is just a simple deferral that's So we have an additional three, million dollars we got deferred in. April May and June but that money has to be paid back over various schedules over the next two years. That's just additional debt on the balance sheet, and we come out of this without P P p. one of the things cameras restaurants we built three or four restaurants a year, and if we're saddled with millions of dollars debt if and when we get out of this I don't see a building an aiding the economic rebound in the country in Twenty One and twenty two point further were saddled with all this debt. What have you heard from the the senators you've spoken with on this? I've spoken. Personally to both are centers in the state of Ohio and. They understand our plate and and but I, think they're. All. The negotiation right now over the six hundred, a week stimulus for unemployment benefits. So I don't think it's getting much attention that it needs right now and I hope by the time we get this bill and some sort of agreement between both parties on this bill that we can get this P P P round two stimulus, which has one hundred and ninety billion dollars earmarked for it, which should be more than enough for these companies passed the stress test that show they actually needed. To keep with the original PCP levels P P one camera I want to thank you for the update We we have to check in with you again soon, but we appreciate your time and wish you good
Banks Under Fire for Alleged Unequal Lending Practices

The Pandemic Cut Down Car Traffic. Why Not Air Pollution?
"So there was definitely one picture but I remember seeing a freeway in Los Angeles arguably the traffic capital of the United States and there were no cars. It was like empty for your way clear blue sky and now you came here on this podcast and you're taking that all away from me. Well actually the air was cleaner in Los Angeles in March. It was the longest stretch of cleaner that had been recorded in decades. And you know that's a big deal for la because there is not great. Sometimes there's high levels of ozone Which is a pollutant that sworn by all the that comes out of tail pipes and smokestacks and power plants? What it does is it. It mixes in the air ground level. You add some sunlight and you've got ozone and it's not good stuff it exacerbates respiratory and cardiovascular illness so it makes sense that everybody would be pretty psyched about cleaner air. Yeah and it seemed like that made sense right with all the lockdown and people staying at home. I mean they started asking the air regulators about that like Philip fine of the South Coast Air Quality Management district through a lot of pressure on us to come up with the answer that everyone wanted to hear which the is that the covid nineteen measures have cleaned the air and southern California. But here's the thing it was also really Ramey in. La During the same time and rain helps clear out the air so as the weather is dried out. Recently air quality has gotten worse again. I mean went back to the unhealthy. Category actually yeah. Okay so I guess when you think about. There was this forty percent reduction in traffic and only a fifteen or so decrease in ozone in lots of parts of the country. It's not nothing right like not much. Not A ain't nothin' yeah. It certainly helped some but you know believe it or not sound kind of strange cars are not. La's biggest source of pollution comes to the pollutants that make ozone And that's actually true in a lot of places in the US Which is fine told me that means what's happening. Now with reducing car traffic just enough read a lot of newspaper articles over the past couple weeks decided if only we can have people telecommute one day a week across the entire base in our air quality problems will be solved and unfortunately it's not that simple. That's because the big source in La is trucks A reason is because there's just a lot of shipping that comes through the ports of L. A. and Long Beach and they handle about thirty percent of the country's shipping container traffic and that gets moved around on trucks after it comes in so traffic. It didn't decrease as much as the car. Traffic did so that pollution was still being omitted. Okay so trucks are the problem in La. Becky would about places yet so other places have other pollution sources like Pittsburgh. We looked at Pittsburgh and ozone only felt by nine percent about between mid-march and the end of April and when I asked atmospheric chemists about this they were like the reason is coal. Oh the Col- cold. It's burned to make electricity primarily but also call. It's used to make steel right. The history of Pittsburgh is all about steel scar. Have some very active industrial sources near the city in this kind of at the University of Pittsburgh? Emily Elliott says Cole is really dirty work in closer proximity to the places that are generating power coal fired power plants in the Ohio River valley that contribute quite a bit to pollution. Okay Sup- Pittsburgh has coal. La Trucks anything else. I should know about. Yeah Houston has this thing with factories. Oh Right Rebecca Hersher. We've talked about that on the show before indeed. We have and for those who might not remember Houston has one of the largest concentrations of petrochemical facilities in the country so to see how ozone levels have changed their versus other places. That was an interesting question for us. And what we found. Is that those facilities. They mostly kept operating during the pandemic actually in fact a lot of them they make the raw materials for masks and gloves the PCP hospitals need so desperately right now. So I'm guessing that ozone levels decrease a lot in Houston exactly ozone decrease less in Houston than did in La okay so it sounds like industrial pollution versus pollution from our like. Private cars is a big deal. Are Scientists looking into that? Becky like how much industry plays into this. Yeah they are. And it's possible that the overall air chemistry has also changed when we remove cars from the picture which is kind of an intriguing idea like air pollution is kind of a soup of different chemicals and bits and that soup is different now. And there's something even more confusing that happens with that soup that Air Chemistry and this is really strange to stay with me. This is really strange. So say with me as actually sure. We've tagline so go ahead you're at home. Will we mention that stuff coming out of tail? Pipes and other sources is what makes ozone rates that stuff is nitrogen oxide so nitrogen. Oxides helped form ozone. But here's where it gets weird under some conditions you know. In the short term nitrogen oxides can break down ozone molecules
Making music in isolation: Indigenous artist creates new work during pandemic
"Of all what happened to you back in February so I ended up having a stress. Inducing takes a lot of work to be an independent artists to be an independent artists in the US. You know doing the level of visibility and lack of opportunities so you know I manage myself. I produce an engineer my own music so it just takes a lot of work to do what I do and for the first time in my life I hit a limit physically and ended up having a I ever stress induced seizure of my life and I. I got taken by ambulance to a hospital on the side of Chicago. Close to where. I'm based and ended up having one of the worst experiences of medical racism I've ever faced in my life as a native person so The hospital had assumed I was. I was on hard drugs. Pcp in that's what had caused the seizure and caused my state Even though relatives were there telling them otherwise you know they just assume the worst. They saw my Ceremony Scars Khotan do some piercing ceremonies. They saw some some of the ceremony scars on my body and had assumed it was self mutilation and then I had come to in the hospital and I was intimated in. I wasn't supposed to be conscious but I ended up coming to out of the sedatives and I panicked and freaked out. I felt like I was suffocating. And they mark me with combative disorder strapped me into bed with locked restraints for a couple of days and so I went in for a seizure and when I came to a couple of days later and came out of it I actually ended up having to stay in the hospital for a whole week to undo the damage that they had done to my muscles in my body from shooting with so many sedatives and from strapping the into a bed. Like I felt like in look like I got ran over by truck so so yeah it was just. It was a really Violent experience for me. I came out of that. Just just a couple of weeks before the pandemic kit. So you know I was kind of kind of a sense of recovery already. And then we all got thrown into a tailspin after that And how did you process that that you put that into your music? Yeah you know. It's it was the only thing I knew how to do so. My music journey started when I was a very young boy and I started playing music and writing songs to heal and process my world and process my experiences. And and so you know to this day. I'm still doing that so I came out of that We're just a lot of trauma even spiritual emotional physical. I'd never really suffered before all at once and it was a little overwhelming and so I did what I what I knew how to do and I turned to my music. I'm working on a project right now album that I'm dedicating to my mother. It's called INA. Which is the LAKOTA word for mother? a lot of songs were were born out of that experience but also what was born out of that. Experience is my first ever flute album. I'm also going to release this month. It's called the along wet too. Which is the Makoto phrasing for Spring Song so I composed four songs after that experience? Because you know I'm not fluent in my language Khotan learning and so I really only speak English and English. Just doesn't capture. Sometimes what I fail and on I found when I just put it all into on native flute. Which is one of the instruments. I play because I also produced music. I but I've never really put out an an album as just a musician purely music. And so I. I kind of turned to that because it was the only thing I could do to express you know a lot of what I was experiencing so I went outside and recorded these songs outside just before the pandemic and just before we went into lockdown and recorded a liar. The songs on my home reservation outside of the House that I grew up in so I'm looking forward to release in those two project soon here and like I said they were born out of that experience. Music has always been a tool for me to heal tool for me to process and very fortunate to be able to share that process and that healing with people through music. So when you say that you used music to process the experience what kinds of And the flute which is really beautiful. How what kinds of lyrics did you find yourself writing in? What kind of You know genre. Did you play in for this album? Yes so So the the album that I'm dedicating my mother. Ina is going to be everything from hip pop to some acoustic hip hop because I also play. You know several acoustic instruments but the the food album along wet to is. Actually the music is just purely native flu. And I'll give you an example. One of the songs on there is a call calling your spirit back song and that was rooted out of a a Just A LAKOTA. Teaching we have of calling your spirit back. You know. It's a daily practice but especially if you go through something traumatic. We're taught to call your spirit back because your spirit can leave you. Even infraction are pieces and so when I came out of the hospital I really felt like my spirit left me and so I felt like I needed to do more than just call my spare back in the traditional sense. I felt like I needed to write a song to do that. And never have I ever had a song just being my head and it was in its entirety. And that's how this song came to me. I picked up my foot as soon as I got home. I stepped outside and What you hear on the album is what came out the first time I it and that's never happened before you know usually have to work on songs. Sometimes I'll tweak songs for months sometimes years but this song was already there You know and that will give you an example of the type of songs that are on this album but I also am recording the stories of how the songs were born in English. So sort of what I'm doing here. I kind of shared the experience that that that birthday song so with each song. I'm going to also show the story of where it came from and doing that I. It's kind of a LAKOTA thing too. In a lot of indigenous cultures. They kind of share the story where the song came from before they share it so I hope to do that with some of my upcoming project says well because I think the stories I also just as important as the music so really you haven't slowed down at all since recovery. It's like no no not at all. I think I just had to get creative. And how how I kept going you know. Fortunately I am doing my passion. I'm doing what I love. And I'm very blessed to do what I love. Even if it is stressful and a lot of work but every day I wake up and get to play music and make a living off of music. I feel like I'm living my gene. You know And you're not just working on on your own music. You're also sort of rippling out this. This idea of community many others and Indian countries while as yourself are feeling these These effects. What specifically are you doing to help communities through this pandemic Definitely so I'm a part of this Collective this this artists collective of Young indigenous artists around my age We're called the dream warriors and we actually formed just out of necessity in need We were looking for management for young indigenous artists. Just like a you know some sort of network support system for us to find gigs and kind of create a support system for each other and we. We couldn't really find one that already existed so we just banded together as as peers as relatives and and and created a artists collective. So we really use this collective as A vehicle to create support systems for native artists. That weren't there for us and one of the ways. We've been able to do that in this. Pandemic is a webinars. So we we we so far have done to webinars where we ended up raising over several thousand dollars in these webinars to disperse to native families in need and we put out a call and we had over hundreds of native families across the reservations. We come from and also communities beyond the communities we come from requesting assistance financial need and. I don't know if y'all are paying attention to the news and stats coming out of the states but native communities are being left out of a lot of the statistics and the numbers being recorded about. How this pandemic affecting community so we're left out of a lot of funding as well so it was really great to be able to use our collective energy and our art to to to do these webinars to generate thousands of dollars worth of funding to disperse to hundreds of families in need and we also had Donors match some of the funding. So this was. This is only the beginning for in this sort of This new creative way of of helping communities and using what we love to do that. That's amazing thank you for being such a wonderful bright light in your community. Thank you Rosanne. I appreciate it frank. Wall is Chang who Lakota rapper from the Rosebud. Indian RESERVATION IN SOUTH DAKOTA IS. New Album will be out later this summer.
Struggling United States Purchased By Private Equity Firm
"Some big news for the US today. The small private equity firm prospect capital partners has officially closed the deal and purchasing the United States of America. Which as we've reported has been struggling financially in the last few months the private equity firm purchased all fifty states Washington DC five major territories and various minor islands in the acquisition for an undisclosed sum. But what does this mean for? Americans like you and me for more. I'm joined by. Opr financial correspondent. Marcy Hammond Good Morning. Marcy High Leslie. Can you tell us about the country's new owners and what we can expect from them? Prospect capital partners has investments in a broad array of industries. Their portfolio includes everything from discount. Furniture stores to niche lifestyle magazines even funeral home chains and designer dog breeding services. Oh yes. I've gotten several of my teacup Pomeranian from their property. Puppy lucks but why. The United States of America to their portfolio. Well since it was already swamped in twenty three dollars worth of debt. Experts say that. Pcp was able to pay pennies on the dollar for the nation which has been renamed the United Fifty Corporation. Here's what the new. Ceo of the country. Herbert Lindgren had to say about the acquisition. We see a lot of great potential in the country in its assets water real estate energy agriculture etc as the biggest player in our portfolio united fifty is in an ideal position to capitalize on this dynamic. And I'm really excited to expand its reach. There'll be some small changes and focusing country reorganization but for the most part. We're just going to let the brand continued to create great products while supporting it. Well that sounds promising. What small changes have been implemented so far several? Lindemann is made swift moves to eliminate many inefficiencies for instance congressional representatives per state or teams as they're now called Heaven pared-down according to stay. Gdp luster running the numbers. We just move as a necessary step. Texas by itself had thirty six house representatives and dozens upon dozens of mayors but streamline the corporate structure and now the half to supervisors and a nature representatives will be based out of United Fifties. La Office and it wasn't just Texas that had inefficiencies in fact the United Fifty C. Suite identified positions states all over the country. That were found to be redundant. People in such positions were immediately removed from the country and escorted into the ocean by security. Well I guess no one ever really needed to senators anyway but martial arts some of these government positions essential to functioning United States. I mean United Fifty yes and departments are scrambling to adjust. Fill the holes while some citizens are saying that quality is definitely gone down due to the chaos however Lindemann says these stumbling blocks are nothing more than growing pains for the country. Contrary to what you've heard local officials were not laid off offered transfers to existing openings and other cities that were contract-based without benefits. We don't plan to cut our way to growth but life is about constant change. The good news is already seeing signs that we're well on our way to hitting our Q. Revenue Goals. I WANNA thank those. We've sadly seemly for their service. United Fifty and the Management Team. Here promises that we will do everything. We can to make the transition into their next chapter as easy as possible juice. These are a lot of changes. Did they know it's a Friday? Pull this shit right before the weekend. That's unfortunate I wonder. What's the new leadership goal and all this? I was wondering that myself to figure that out. I spoke to John pfeiffer professor of economics at Harvard University and an expert on private equity firms who gave me some insight into United Fifties Possible Future. Private equity was to see quick return on investment to do that. You cut costs and exploit resources to shore up earnings then. The company either sells it at a profit or if it fails to be competitive in its newly diminished form. They squeeze it into bankruptcy. I THE INVESTORS. Keep THE CASH. No matter what though. Personally I wouldn't be surprised if they offloaded the entire underperforming Midwest division to be honest now when asked to comment on the possibility of that Lindemann denied any such sale was an option. The midwest a strong acid with many natural resources and agricultural and manufacturing properties and we definitely don't see ourselves letting go of such a commodity anytime soon but we're also happy to hear out any bids that may come our way in the near future but according to a source. I spoke with inside the company country. United Fifty might already be in talks to break up the Midwest and sell it Shari Marci. I'm going to have to stop you right there. We've just received a memo from up top saying that we should stick to reporting on. What does it say here Anything else okay. Great back with something completely different right after.
UN health agency leads collaborative bid to get 135 countries ready for COVID-19
"This is Matt Wells at US News. Well if you're an avid follower of curve in nineteen developments you may have wondered what the phrase PCR equipment means. Well it stands for polymerase chain reaction which is the process that labs use to check with someone with cub in nineteen symptoms has the new current a virus after taking a medical swap usually from both nostrils in line with World Health Organization voice to countries to test as many cases of suspected. Infection is possible the race is on to find enough. Pc MACHINES FOR EVERYBODY. And that's where poll molinaro comes in. He's the cool calm collected head of the -gistically the WHO which with other EU partners is part of a major new initiative to help kit out one hundred and thirty five countries trying to see off the pandemic. He's been talking to you and uses Daniel Johnson. So right now. It's trying to get US access to products that are in extremely short supply because of very high demand and be able to get access to those markets collectively on behalf of lowering committing come countries a quiet financed by and move those things to a platform from which we can deliver via aircraft managed by. W and others to the countries where those things are needed. How many countries are we talking about so it depends on the type of on what product I think unless count where anywhere between one hundred twenty one hundred thirty five. We all know that. There's massive demand and not enough supply for face masks gloves. But what's the other equipment that you really trying to get hold of in? Massive numbers diagnostic tests different types of high throughput automated or manual. Pr Systems is critical then in biomedical. It's mainly around provisions of oxygen so oxygen concentrator 's oxygen manufacturing machines ventilators CPAP machines oxygen giving set any sort of mass. That go with it. So it's the PCP around the protection for the health workers lab workers. It's the diagnostics to be able to identify intest who is infected and then for those unfortunate enough to hit the clinical frontline. Is the equipment needed to treat them? And where exactly is it going to go first? How do you prioritize need well? It's difficult so we have developed a model based on epidemiology based on a number of inputs that we make for each country on the attack rate that they're currently facing how many cases they have and then from that we get an estimation of how many bed spaces they would need if they were moving to a clinical environment and that also putting in terms of what other percentages of mild severe severe critical cases that we're experiencing averaged out so it is a little bit of a and had to be done with modeling at the same time. We have a matrix. Who is issued an updates regularly on the various risks and vulnerabilities of countries? Of course we also compare that to current case count and the rate of spread in each country to try and get a sense of where we should be going. I and with numbers. And let's just talk about demand for second you were saying in an earlier press conference that demand is one hundred to two times above normal totally unprecedented stuff. So is this a significant enough measure bringing together enough you and agencies and Non Union partners to make a real difference. Well it's what we can do. So certainly we start off with bringing our partners into the shop and coordinating and working with them in terms of trying to bring together the volumes and the financing that we can collectively get hold off and then approach markets which we have. I mean different. Entities have different experience in different markets. So we try and use what we're strong collectively at. And that I think just gives us a more coordinated approach again beginning off on those elements we work closely with so assist the UN agencies and then some of our larger NGO partners which have long term standing relationship and organizations like the Global Fund and financing institutions like the World Bank like Bill Melinda Gates Foundation to be able to frontload or bridge financing for us to acquire some of these quantities. But with the best will in the world when border start closing and country start hanging onto the food end-equipment that they need to withstand this cove in nineteen new corona virus pandemic. How do you overcome those barriers? And the concern I have is that the World Food Program said that does delays at the borders yourself mentioned that to UNICEF macy's some difficulties in distributing vital vaccines so. What's the prognosis. Wants the outlet? It's difficult and it is a big challenge. Now what we do is we do have a long track. Record of being able to circumvent some of these bottlenecks where humanitarian and disaster. The districts professionals. It's not new to us. It's something we do as bread and butter and we'll continue to do so now with the infrastructure and assets we put in place managed by WFP. That's another partner that we've worked with a lot in the past to to reach areas that are difficult to reach and then around the difficulties with I mean. Who has country representation across the globe so does UNICEF so does the U N D peace within entire UNC system? There are ways that we can advocate within certain governments. And if you see some of these export restrictions doing clued generally provision for exemption for humanitarian and medical movement. It's not always easy to navigate the exemption and it takes persistence and you do have to jump through hoops but again. Persistence is something where we do. Where you sit and so we push forward that way now where we get availability we will. We'll address any issues we we don't face it in all the old country. We do get specific exemptions that negotiated and we do see movements it could be more and certainly will continue pushing for that again with access to a schedule sort of cargo facility provided by WIP and with the know how that collectively we have as you and agencies and NGOs. We can circumvent this. And I guess very last question to you. There's reports that air travel is going to cost fifty percent more now presumably. That will have the same sort of knock on impact on your work. So how will you manage to keep the show going if you like? Well I think when it comes to putting back the passenger networks online. Obviously they're not gonNA be able to fill their planes with people so certain even when we're planning for the WFP passenger service you know. They're not going to be able to have a complete fool plane. I mean especially not at the beginning that going to need to be distant so any airline company is going to have to factor that in now will that same price go onto the freight animal of that that goes underneath the plane. Maybe it will be cheaper. You're not actually loading many twenty or thirty kilos sets of luggage into the hold. Maybe frees up some capacity full cargo on some of these things. One never knows certainly when we were trying to find. F. Rate from China when Chinese manufacturing was down it was very cheap when Chinese manufacturing came back online. It becomes more expensive. It's just the nature of supply and demand over capacity and under-capacity so as these airlines come online maybe a freight we'll get cheaper on certain routes certain segments. Maybe it's going to get more expensive. So sometimes these things can be a bit hard to predict certainly living in a topsy turvy world at the beginning. When a lot of countries were sending support to China every into China was expensive. Now it's the other way round coming back gone up.
Small business loan funds are tapped out
"Marriage. It's complicated to be amazing. The the upshot is it is complicated and some unknown percentage of Americans wound up getting stimulus checks this week at the same time as some unknown percentage of small business owners wound up getting the PC checks this week. Paycheck protection plan Not all of them have gone out yet. But I'm I'm assuming that within the week nearly all of that initial three hundred and forty nine billion will go out to small business owners. It is clearly not enough and while the people who didn't get stimulus checks on mostly super annoyed about I've seen some people saying like I got some weird windfall income in twenty. At and then. That means I'm not eligible but I should be eligible any any money like there are definitely people who should be getting stimulus checks in on the real anger. I'm seeing is from small business owners who just didn't have the right banking relationships and didn't manage to get their PCP applications in and they are just furious that money has run out and they aware they can end up with nothing. Fox is that thirteen point seven percent of the P P P loans went to the construction industry versus nine point one percent of the P P P loans which one small business owner told. My colleague stands for WHO Poop Poop then to the restaurant industry? Now the construction industry so far in March Last twenty nine thousand jobs and the restaurant industry march las four hundred seventeen thousand jobs yet. The construction industry was the F. top industry beneficiary ficiary of the PP loans. Which kind of I think is a very telling way of talking about how the program was poorly structured and like Felix was saying benefited those who had the good relationships with their banks over those who probably needed the money even more. But just don't have that kind of relationship aren't as savvy about applying through the money like there are some law firms that were out there. Like drumming up interest in getting these loans and Like a franchise restaurants like. Ruth's Chris. Steak House got Twenty million dollars. Pp loans also. It's just I think was a poorly show was definitely this weird carve out so to to be eligible for the people you need to be a small businesses with fewer than five hundred employees asterisk. And then this Astra's all you can be a restaurant with any number of employees so we screw steakhouse as five thousand employees and they managed to muscle up to different subsidiaries which they decided eligible for Ppo so they got twice the maximum and people are looking at them going look. You're a publicly traded company. This money was not designed for you and that twenty million dollars could have gone to a genuine small business which really needed the cash right now. But I think that there's a little bit of a false scarcity issue is not real scarcity issue. No it's a real scarcity that's been created but doesn't need to be. I don't think the issue here is companies getting too much money. I think the issue here is that it was too small to begin with. It shouldn't have been designed in such a way to go through the banking system. It should have. I think a lot of just been very similar to how we did the personal payments. I realize it's going to be harder if it was simply done. From the IRS sending out based on like corporate taxes but at the end of the day we need firms to get money. We can allocate so much more money to this than we already are so I think arguing between firms is less the issue the issue that we just need more money to go out and I think if they haven't at three hundred forty nine billion a lot of the anger an avatar would not be that like they're talking about another two hundred and fifty which I suspect also won't be enough but I also suspect that if they add another three hundred fifty or so then it probably will be enough so I don't understand why they're trying to sort of minimize the amount of money that they're spending on this when it's obvious that it's the outcome right now is deeply unfair and you need to allow the small businesses who didn't have the right kind of banking relationships to be able to compete on an equal playing field with the ones who did. And so why a eking out these trenches why they think well we'll give you three fifty and then if that turns out to be not enough we'll give you another two fifty and if that turns out to be not enough maybe we'll give you a little bit more just allocate like a trillion dollars or something and then any money left over you can back and use for something else. I mean it seems like there's a real prejudice against there's no other way to look at it and say oh the the federal government sees small businesses completely differently than the large businesses. That are able to tap into this all this this river of bed money and be okay and then making these small businesses kind of lake. Go begging for money. The there is a big family. Which is the big river of fed money for big businesses which is a big river of money and is actually working pretty well is loans all of it needs to be paid back every penny. The small businesses are not lunged at basically grunts dressed up as loans. And for that reason. You need to. You need to raise the money from Congress. You can just magic the money out of thin from the FAD and so congress is going to be sitting there going. Who Second Nettie is going. Oh this is you know fiscal blah blah blah. And so it becomes harder. One of the things I wrote about in my news out of this week was the way that the Federal Reserve and the Treasury been working together to really maximize the amount of money that is going into the economy but the P. Program is somewhere that really the Federal Reserve. Come help much. They they have said they're going to start buying up these. Pp Lennon's banks like Wells Fargo. Who really need to get mafia balance-sheets but that super marginal really you need Congress to allocate capital in Congress is about as functional as you'd expect it to be right now. Yeah so now. We're what's emerging is really this like to tear response to this crisis where small businesses and individuals are kind of left twiddling their thumbs. Not they're not getting the money they need right away. Small businesses are GONNA go under and businesses. Thanks to the Fed even notes loans are GonNa probably be okay are going to swoop in and take over there. They're going to be the ones popping up in where the small businesses kind of failed and at the end of the day. If we ever get out of this we're just GONNA see more inequality in the US. I mean the one thing I will say though is that like this has been there is so much more aid and so much more aid more quickly this time around than we've ever seen before in it is far from perfect. And I think we're all in agreement that this should have been structured differently in should've been structured better but I like I guess I would say that. Yes you know. It is probably likely that a lot of small businesses are going to fail and that is horrible. That shouldn't be happening. And that is going to be a fault of poor response a response but like I the one thing I will say. Is You know we are just really starting to see this money coming out now so we still don't totally know what the effect is going to be one thing. The one thing that we do know is the. I've been hearing from small business on this. Who Literally said I needed that? Pp money in the first trunch. If I didn't infest ranch I have to shut down. This is the big businesses in the S. and P. Five hundred. The biggest businesses in America is basically what the S. and P. Five hundred bouncing back up thanks to all of the liquidity that the Fed is providing. I think emily is absolutely right. That it is. This is one of those periods where inequality between businesses has been massively exacerbated in the big your balance sheet the more access to capital markets and generally the Ludger. You are the better off. You are with very few exceptions and there's no question that's going to be bad for everyone right. You have more of these big businesses taking over. It means more monopolies cornering different industries. It means lower pay for people at Wieden pay disparity. I mean it's really although if you look at men here like that the companies the I mean I look. I don't disagree with you in the sense that like. I don't think it's a good thing. If we have a bunch of small businesses going under I don't think it's a good thing if we have like greater monopoly power. I completely agree with you on that. Although the one thing I will say. Is that working for a larger company. You tend to be paid better that so the idea that if you tend to be the worst if it working for smaller companies and you have a large companies. This is one of the long term trends which is absolutely clear. Is that the total employment in the S&P. Five hundred has been trending downwards for decades. And you have you know. Large company says suddenly the trillion dollar companies out. There like Microsoft have a lot of employees. But they don't have nearly as many employees as like you know. Hundred Billion dollar companies did twenty years ago. And so. Yeah if you're lucky enough to work for Microsoft that's great but that's not the source of employment. Small Business is the real place where you tens of millions of Americans need to find employment and if small business fails on mass that's going to just completely decimate the employment situation in

"pcp" Discussed on Dopey: On the Dark Comedy of Drug Addiction
"To every episode. I've listened to enough to know that subject line would likely catch your attention. Dave Dave Dobie is in fact the best podcast. I've come across and I love you. Dude anyhow with the pleasantries out of the way just wanted to say hi and pick your brain a bit I I I learned about. dopey several months ago while listening to another pretty good drug podcasts psychotropic and have been avidly working my way through all of your content right from episode one want today. I just finished episode one eleven. Initially your podcast was a simple activity. That kept me entertained on my commute but over time it has transformed into a ritual ritual that I genuinely look forward to every day more importantly it has me reflecting on my recovery and considering how to move forward with the most success us as a nearly thirty one year old who picked up a taste for intoxication in my mid teens. I've spent half of my life hobbling around on the crutch known as addiction. My progression from recreational use to fall on afflicted status was slow but thorough spamming across every drug. Most people can name and a few most people oh haven't even heard of the only exceptions being PCP and acid. Once I picked up. Opiates things got ugly shortly after meeting. My wife I made a concerted effort to try and quit. I struggled for a couple of years and eventually found myself using nothing but create them for a long time. I considered myself clean and doing well but I can tell you firsthand that create them is not the innocent plant. A lot of people make it out to be frankly it's availability and the consistently perpetuated misinformation information in regard to its effects both positive and negative. Make it a downright dangerous drug that many people fall victim to people. Call it opiate light which which does accurately reflect the high but not the addiction. Let me tell you a short story. As an example around this time last year I decided to quit once and for for all again I started a taper schedule in booked some time off work at which point I plan on going cold Turkey although it was tough I did manage to reduce my dose Over the course of several weeks with careful yet still incredibly uncomfortable taper and when my time off arrived dumped all of my remaining stash in the garbage bin outside inside over the next seven days or so I weight knuckled it through the inevitable withdrawals things we're looking at but despite the suffering endured one one of those visceral nothing GonNa stop me. Cravings hit without hesitation. I went outside. Started pulling the entire week's worth of garbage out of the can diapers cat litter excetera until I got to the pile of green powder at the bottom. I Shit you not. An entire colony of maggots took took residents in the pile of them. But I didn't give a fuck. I took my spoon scooped up a dose. Pick the maggots out and ate the Shit Sorry within days I was shooting dope and coke again anyhow. I was lucky enough to have one of those dude. What have you become moments and decided decided to take a different approach to recovery? I came clean with my wife and family called my doctor and began my first foray into recovery with the help of actual professionals. Since that day I began to work on my actual issues and I can proudly say I'm doing better than I have in decades. It's not all sunshine and roses. Though I've been on suboxone Laaksonen just under a year now patiently tapering down with an end goal of zero. I also smoke weed most evenings after the kids and wife go to bed and taken the S.. Sri Daily the first few months of this new plan of this new path record covering yielded great results. But I feel as if I reached a plateau. Something is still not right in my life and I am not sure what it is or where to find it. I kept myself isolated for years and have very few social interactions outside of my family. And what's necessary at work. I feel lost. I'm not sure this sense of drive I used to have is missing and I want to have it back. I've always poked fun at twelve step meetings and such but listening to your podcast has seriously ask me seriously considering trying my hand with the fellowship. I am scared though I am not a spiritual religious person and the whole suboxone. We'd things has me a feeling ashamed. To go feeling my plan at the moment is to finish this suboxone taper at which point want to try putting aside the weed for a few months and diving headfirst into AA or NA. Just to see where it takes me. I'd also like to come off the. Sri Do you think and guide benefit or welcome. Be Welcome to popping into some meetings before I can actually claim sobriety. I don't know what I'm looking for but I need to find it and I figure this should be a great place to start. I was also curious how the rooms view drugs like vivid troll.

Here's implanted policies actually favoring we menaced in the workforce or access in different types of jobs for this just run counter to his policy. So I think there has been criticism. Towards it because they had changed coming from the top, but semi students are not willing to change like this one. Okay. Let's move on. Shall we to to China PCP data the China, Daily forest as Shanghai, imposing heavy fines for mixing source of garbage. So basically and make sure your recyclables or in the right bin. This on this London, a very issue, very global issue, but the pollen in China, listen and high is that those have to the competence have to sort garbage than do it properly. So even if people try to sort of their own garbage than the other, they doesn't really matter. And the way to deal with this in Shanghai at least is through fines. So this is actually, this is not a consumer behavior. This is about the company's actually dealing with our with rubbish in Shanghai, and they were not at preserving, shall we say, the separation, the good work that consumers had gone to the ordinary people are going to two separate their rubbish. And I mean. Why was it a kind of a case of laziness or incompetence or seems. Away of a case of cutting costs, the fighter much perfume have to work right, or you pretend you do it or even with properly. So it was more about cost-cutting more than a laziness or any other thing.

I think many major centers in in China given the intense air pollution that they've been suffering. This for years are very quickly coming to grips and hopping on, shall we say when it comes to treating the environment with with respect and well, let's talk about something that's not being treated respect. We're going to to to Taiwan next where this picture that you've picked for from the or the the PC paycheck from the South China Morning, post features a very dramatic picture of a bulldozer, climbing up steps towards a Buddhist temple. What's going on in the store. Well has been kind of in Taiwan. Actually, the fact that this is a Buddhist temple incited citizen actually that owns the temple. He opened a Chinese, communist shrine. So it is not about the fact that the Chinese communism it's been supported by. I want to see this because that's allow this Chrissy, but it's more about the the fact that they've this was then subversively and the building wasn't being used for s- purpose, which is as we set up with Stemple. So this was an official effort as it were to remove this communist shrine within the borough samples, I rice, yes. And so kind of sanction by the government or by the local authorities and tear we see, like you say, a big turquoise bulldozer, a rather, you know, incredibly am mounting, a big Fleischer steps. I've never seen a bulldozer at that angle before tearing into this Buddhist temple. I mean, you mentioned there. Taiwan is a democracy, but it has it said territorial spews with with China, which likes to think of it as as as part of China, and but there is a respect you're saying for. Those with with communist sympathies in in Taiwan because because it is democracy, it's not the case that this wasn't akeso of supporting communists in this case of how you stability maturity, many Taiwanese, especially younger Taiwanese. They're afraid that China actually wants to take over the country even by force if necessary. So there has been now, why did they betting society where this should be allowed with your speech should include the the right? For example, to rise Chinese, communist flack, for example, funny a bit like communism in its purest form, and this is a government which doesn't seem to be showing much respect for private property.
