Carfax says odometer fraud is on the rise. Odometer art digital these days, but actually means they're easier to roll back. Well, you know, a lot of people think that the old man should have been easier, but today there are lots of devices that you can find for sale for just a few $100 that can literally matter of just a few seconds, take off ten, 20, a 100,000 miles off a digital odometer. That's Patrick Olson at Carfax. Consumers lose an average of $4000 in value from unknowingly buying a rollback car. It is easier to roll back, odometers today, but it's also easier to spot it. When you get your car registered when you get it serviced in many places, there's notations taken of the mileage at that point. And in a vehicle history report, you can see the progression and all of a sudden there it's 20, 30,000 fewer miles than it had before. That's definitely going to be a big tip off.

"Are people saying? Yes. A lot of the people, a lot of the locals here, they seem to really like SPF and FTX. Obviously, they spend a lot of money on you. Can you, sorry, we're not, there's a lot of wind. I don't know if you're going to cover your microphones. Okay. Is that better? Maybe a little better? Yeah, that's better. I'm not in the best conditions. As I mentioned, but regardless, the locals seem to like them a lot. They didn't seem to cause any trouble when they would go out. It didn't seem like they had drugs in them or were doing any crazy sexual orgies. So for the people that lived here, they seem to like them, and they seem to miss their presence to the lack of cash flowing. I read that they had like a $50,000 tab on faith tab open in one of the cars. And margaritaville did check that out. Yeah, we went to the margaritaville yesterday. We spoke to a few people there. The margaritaville had a deal with FTX where they would give discounts to the employees. So I guess it's a popular spot. We also spoke to the valet person at the margaritaville. And like I said, he really liked the FTX people. He said he even had a few of their phone numbers in his phone. He had a personal, close relationship with them. And again, he said that they never caused any problems. They would always come and have a nice time at dinner, eat a lot, but again, nothing to crazy. It doesn't seem like they were doing lines of cocaine at dinner. Doesn't seem like they were strippers being so pretty low key as far as he was saying. So what's your goal now? What do you expect to get from having traveled there? Want to get some entertaining shit, some funny ass videos. That's the best I can do. I mean, I can get as close to as PF as possible. I don't know exactly where he is, but just getting into the Albany is not that easy. I mean, there is security here, there's security all around, but once you pass the gate, it's not too locked down. But yeah, I want some funny content. That people sent me here for. So like, I mean, have you made contact? Do you think there's a chance of meeting making contact with any former FTX employees? I highly doubt it. I mean, a lot of people, first of all, going record is definitely not, even the people that aren't necessarily directly FTX, employees, they don't want to talk about it on camera as you want to stay as far as possible from this whole situation.

"The New Jersey intelligence unit. And I think it's a good reflection of the kind of threats and scenarios that police and other law enforcement are really considering up and down the east coast. But caught my attention is that it talks to only about domestic extremists, but it also reinforces that foreign terrorist group continue to encourage and try to inspire attacks against civilians and uniform police during this period. And among the tactics that they're advocating are things that really take us back to that post 9 11 period. So vehicle ramming improvised explosive devices or even car bombs, if you will. What else is standing out about the methods? What else stands out is that it talks about more sort of novel methods. It talks about the use of drones, for example. In this case, some that may potentially have explosives and it also talks about physically destroying ballot boxes using improvised explosive devices so an explosion or some kind of fire again, I want to emphasize, there isn't specific credible actionable intelligence, but this is the scope of potential activity and threat that law enforcement is facing. But just the idea of it Catherine is chilling. 15 years ago, we never would have considered being where we are now. Yes, I want to emphasize that it's not something that specific or credible threats, but it's giving you a sense of the range that law enforcement is dealing with. And just to underscore really this final week before election day is always. I mean, even putting this threat environment to one side is always a heightened period because you simply have more people out there more targets of opportunity to use a military term. And so it makes it even more difficult for law enforcement, those people are trying to keep us in the polling station safe. At CBS senior investigative correspondent Catherine herridge on Skype.

"Estimate. It's one 11. 59 years ago today, Martin Luther King delivered his eye have a dream speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. One person in that huge crowd was D.C. resident Dana brockington. She told me that her mother took her there when she was only ten. She had to be there. It was going to be a historic moment and she needed to be there in person. Your mother is no longer with us, but did you ever talk to her in later years about that event? Absolutely, because we went to subsequent. We were at the 25th, I think, anniversary. And my mother was the person who just felt like she, if she could be, she would be always want to be a part of history. And so any major historical occasion in the city, she was there. Has that event had an impact on your life over the years? It has. I have attended follow-up marches. I was there for the I think 25th anniversary and also the 50th anniversary, obviously I continued to follow doctor king, I was in high school when we got the news that he had been assassinated. The turmoil in D.C. happened around me. So it all sort of started for me with having been at that march, just kind of experiencing history as it unfolded. And then understanding that this was a major turning point in our country. Can you ever visit the Lincoln Memorial without thinking of that day? Not ever. I can point out where I think we stood. And I have been there taken friends from out of town there, just having been in the area traveling around the city, and every single time I am in the area, it always comes to mind that I was there in 1963 for the original March on Washington. So you do try to pass on what you experienced that day. I tell my nieces and nephews and godchildren about it all the time. They are all aware that I was there.

"Long fence decks, pavers, and fences go to long fence dot com today and schedule your free in home estimate. Now ten 11, new at the movies this weekend, the much anticipated third film from Jordan Peele. It's called nope, and it defies definition. It's partially a western, a little bit of a horror movie, a little bit of a science, fiction movie. But that's why back at the Haywood ranch is the only black owned horse trainers in Hollywood. We like to say since the moment pictures could move. Yeah, skin of the game. Film critic Christian toto tells us he admires the look of the movie, but he didn't really understand what was going on. We're at the point now after two excellent films that at Jordan Peele movie feels like an event to me like something you look forward to because he is attached. He's such a singular talent. And while I don't think us, the second film was as good as get out, it was certainly a very entertaining showcase for his horror instincts. Now, again, this one does glit around different genres from time to time, but the overall story is about a black owned horse ranch, and they provide horses to different Hollywood productions. And there is a curious cloud formation above their ranch. They don't know if it's something that's unique, or even something more sinister, not to stop it there because I really don't want anyone to see the movie with knowing too much about it. I have to say that while peels instincts are often very sound. There are some wonderful moments in this movie, some are creepy, some are interesting and of course some are funny because he is a comedian at heart. This is a severe letdown, released from me from his last two films. This one is well crafted, but the other elements really just fall, by the wayside, the story doesn't make a lot of sense. The character motivations are muddy at best, and the last 20, 30 minutes, it just felt like a can't we get this over with already, so this is a big disappointment. I imagine that Jordan Peele will make other really good films from here. He's still a young filmmaker, but boy, I thought nope was just a significant downgrade from his last two films. Something else we know about Jordan Peele, he has a lot to say, and whether you're talking about a get out or an us, there are many important messages, social justice messages and others embedded. Any difference here is he's still doing that. You know, I think it's one of his strengths as a storyteller, is even if you disagree with some of his overall philosophies, he weaves these messages so well into the story that it just makes it a richer experience. I think more filmmakers should do that, not as obvious, not like lectures, but hey, the story is all the more interesting because I want you to think about X and Y I didn't find much of that here. I will say some of my critical peers have seen that, but I've been scratching my brain. It's really not very present. I mean, I think with any movie you can interpret it, your own way. So I think he backpedaled a little bit from that kind of storytelling, which is a creative choice and certainly not a problem, but that vacuum needs to be filled by something more substantial and it just doesn't happen here. Could you recommend it on the level of, this is unlike anything else and maybe you want to experience it. It is very original, even though it touches on things we've seen before. And I think when you see any of his films at this point, you know there's a fresh experience going on. And that could be rather rare, so from that perspective alone, perhaps it's worth a try, but I think just given his background given the fact that he's made some really good films. And the fact that the film falls apart so aggressively toward the end, I really want him to recommend it. I think it's a real disappointment. Christian toto with Hollywood in toto dot com on Skype, he says he can't bring himself to recommend nope, despite it being well crafted and having some good parts.

"I want to solve this problem and not think about it again, right? So I'm going to throw some money on it. I piece together the system by looking online marketplace. Are people off? There's a lot of people offloading older equipment. I got great deal on a dream machine. If I dream machine and a guy had like ten of them and he was giving it away for next to nothing and I jumped at it and I lucked out on that. You know, I saw a few other deals grab those things and I ended up just piecing the whole system together. With everything I wanted, but it did cost me a little bit of money still. A little chunk of change to do it. Well, you're in Canada too. So it's always a little more expensive, right? Yeah. Isn't it? Aaron's always saying it's like 20% more or something like that in Canada. Yeah, we always have, you know, we got to pay for the shipping from the states and stuff like that. I thought it was paying for healthcare. I thought that's what it was. I mean, they don't make they don't actually have $500 hammers, right? I mean, something needs to pay for healthcare. Exactly. So I'll run through. So what did you end up with? What's the kind of punch list of equipment it took to replace all that? So I got the unified dream machine, that's the main router and everything like that. And then that goes into a switch, a 24 port switch. It's not a PoE switch. It's just their current, I don't know the exact model numbers off the top of my head. But you'll see it on their website. From the switch I go into, I have two flex HDs. Once in my family room, once in my master bedroom, and then I have a nano that's at the front of the garage. And those are my access points. So I have those access points throughout the house. They're all on different corners of the house. So they cover the edges. And then in the various rooms I also have little four point switches. In each one that, you know, and it's funny 'cause you see all this stuff in their app. They all report to each other. You can manage them, you see what's connected to them. It's amazing the information you get from them. Yeah, it sounds like, and I haven't run a unified system, but it does sound like you get a lot of clarity out of it as far as what things are doing. That was always the PF sense. I always felt like I had to get a PhD to figure out some of the like, oh, I got to write some code to do this. Now, you write code. So that would be pretty easy for you, but I never. I always struggled with that. Is your garage the one that gets to your neighbor's garage? So the garages are pretty close. They're like right next to each other. So, you know, I get my signal over there, which is great, because sometimes I'll go over there and be working on something and I need to have access to my network from there. Yeah. How long do you think you were so, you know, taken down the home Wi-Fi, right? I mean, that's not always the most. You're not always the most popular person in the house. When those kinds of things happen. I mean, I always have to plan. If I'm going to do any major upgrades or anything, I kind of have to do them late at night or wake up early on a Sunday morning. That's a good time to do it. Do you have any problems putting this in? How long did it take you to talk a little bit about that? When you plan something like this, I know you have to go through change management and get approvals, et cetera, et cetera. There's a whole process to it. So when I planned it, you know, luckily it's just me and the wife, so I don't have to deal with kids, you know, complaining that the Wi-Fi is down or anything, but why the TVs all dependent on it and everything like that too, right? So what I did is I planned it so the first thing I had to get back up and running was the unraid box on the TV, right? So I know once I get the switch in and I got this in all that stuff kick back in in the main TV is working and she's happy and now I can work on the rest of it and not only took me a little bit of time. Did you have to change SSIDs? Did you have to go to each of the devices or were you able to put in the same info in password and have it work? Yeah, I kept all the SSIDs the same and the same password. So I configured the unified dream machine actually offline first so that all I had to do was just swap it in for the era at that point, right? And the SSIDs were all the same and everything and the devices just all switched right over. Bob says, I always plan my network maintenance around, honey. Did you see that there's a shoe sale at your favorite place on Saturday? It's a great way. Hey, here's a $100. Go get some lunch somewhere and take your time. Yeah, there's a way to do it. Have you had, when did you put it in, Gavin? I think it was about December or November, December, I put it in. And if you had any dream machine problems, there's a couple couple reports in the chat room of some folks that were that the unified disappointment machine is called by some out there. Have you had any issues or did you listen to every piece of equipment? Every piece of equipment has issues, I'm not a lucky ones. The only issue I had with my whole setup since I put it in was with my printer. It was dropping off. Are you booted up? You would see it, you could print fine and then like an hour later, it's gone, right? And it wouldn't discover. And I don't know what it was, but I went through extensive disable this feature. Let's see what happens. Disable this feature I documented everything so I can try and figure out what exact feature it was. And then one day it all started working. I don't know if I got an update and there was a reboot and it all started working. I don't know what it was. I can't figure out what it was. I went through and started undoing all the things I did. And I can't break it now. So I'm at the point where it's like, you know what? It works. I don't know how it would fix it. Just one day, one day you went down there and it was fine. Yeah, it went to print something. It's like, oh, it showed up, right? And the wife she prints a lot. So she's the first to let me know. So she's my perfect test for that. Yeah. Don't you hate that. You're working and work in a troubleshoot and you reset it and you do it again and set it back up and you give up and you try again a week later and it doesn't work. And then one day I think it may have been an update they released or something, you know? Because there's updates going out like all the time to these things. An update to the to the printer or an update to the network. The update to the networks on the dream machines, even the access points. They all get software updates. Yeah. Yeah. How do you manage those on the dream machine? I almost feel like I want to turn it off, but I have it all automatic. So I almost feel like I want to turn it off because I want to manage it. I haven't got bitten yet by the updates, you know?.

You know i just got married. I didn't have a gig blah blah blah blah blah. So i was doing there right. And so i'm like bad place and they have to work out and i go hop in and i was. There were things i could really do. But there's things just was not in good health. As you point out headsets. And anyway i remember driving back from mashhad like okay so i asked the guy like so. What kind of money would i be making. Nash dot as opposing be and he's like Foods three thousand a month. And i was like are you. Are you fucking kidding. Me i i i guess. My career is over So now you're now you're back with mcabe tel-aviv like now. You're kind of a different person. Who's your coach. When he came back like oceanwide came back was what was he like He's a really good guy liked. I liked him a lot. I thought that some his Like this is no-no it's and it's not exactly know who's like who's making personnel decisions where this fits him or the gm or whatever. Like i thought he just had to do with what he got. And i don't know like it seemed like the team didn't have great like cohesion that year. So i play with him. I played for him my first year. Back and then The current coach got the job halfway through my second year. So i've played for Now for this'll be like my fourth year cling forum no third three and a half so. Yeah i've played for him for a while now and we have a really relationship which is great michelle lifelock easier as a player when you have good really should the coach and you have consistency like you have something that everybody in. Your pam strives for which is like just going to be in the same place a couple of years and rose. I don't have to an all new. My career has like when people ask for the house. You're overseas experience on like you got to ask someone else. Because i've been so. I've been in great locations. I've never played in russia ukraine poland or any of these really cold places with not a lot to do like until this past year in spain. I had always been on the mediterranean which is ridiculous and an even last year in spain. A thirty minute drive from the atlantic ocean. Like i'd always lived in really cool places with great people and great food so i i don't know how a lot of these guys that like you know grind in finland or estonia. I don't know how they do it but you know more power to them they they must. They must really love the game. 'cause you hear these great stories of these guys coming from like bulgaria workday to yearly martinez. Now actually that's exactly historic. He started out in bulgaria making like two thousand dollars a month and now he's with me mcabe making hundreds of thousands of dollars angelo colorado pleaded. Usf it is amazing amazing right. It's just it's just a war of attrition right. It's it's how much work ethic you have war attrition. you gotta keep your confidence up. You got to find the right fit right job. If i go back and did it do it i did. We won the russian league. But i didn't play that much. My first year split time and we get a lead and they play all the russian guys and so i kinda privately wish i would have gone and done the three four grand a month thing and just got my confidence back. The score learned the european game. And i still might be playing hell up until a couple years ago but okay. So why did you go to spain. A will much contract was up with mcabe and that was right. When corona hit was when we working on extension and yes and boom corona coms and. I was playing really well at your house having my best year. Statistically having our best season as a team and then corona so all previous talks get thrown out there. Like jake reed another budget. We don't know what it's gonna do to. You know everything so we can't really. We can't really make you an offer because we don't know what our budget is gonna be like okay. I understand but i'm getting offers from these other teams and i can't pass on everything for you guys so it basically just became added really wanna go but kinda just. I needed a job. So and then I'd always wanted to play in spain and one of my best friends was on the club there. One of my davidson guys actually was on the team there and that was ago krisha votes so we played together last year in spain which was which was really really cool special to be able to play with them again. Kind of kept me sane. Through last year which was a really tough year for me. Yes what was that like. What was 'cause we we had on. Charles jenkins on in greece during both spain will My wife and i had our first daughter in september of twenty twenty. So i came i should i should say israel finished at the end of july. 'cause they postponed the league brought it back to finish so we finish july. I go home. We have a house i go home for like three weeks. I report to training camp practice two weeks. A flat for the birth to our daughter spend like a week at home with them. I go back to spain thinking my wife and daughter will join me like around christmas time. We have for passport and now we get the visas and stuff like that so we be apart for like two two and a half months. No big deal They didn't make it over until march so we regard for six months and that was really really tough. Because i felt like i was being a bad dad. You know i'm not. They're missing all the all the time with her and my wife has to do everything on her own and to compound that in my house alone in staying the city's closed down. There's nothing to do.

What's amazing is here. we are years later. You're still open you know and i don't. I don't think any of those other guys are by the time i graduated. I was like i don't know a hundred and eighty s What website bothers to rank doubt many kids but someone does it and out of those hundred seventy nine ahead of me or something. There were like four guys that i could recognize. Still playing and one of them was was Kawhi leonard at like one hundred forty eight which i felt pretty amazing but yeah just goes to show those rankings You know mean a lot of time and then less and less life goes on. I i think they are. I think. Here's the problem is a lot of times you tell Mice appearances sometimes. The rankings are done by people who don't know what they're talking about sometimes. Oftentimes they're done based upon current day. Right like yeah. If you actually stack neat stack you up against other guys. They would appear to be better. The problem is that like. That's not really how you're supposed to recruit you got to recruit what a guy gonna look like over the next four to five years. He's in your program and you know if you're remained brown. Ronnie fields is the perfect example. I like now ronnie was my year. He was old as well. He had off the court issues that caused him to flame out never really play cleanly professionally but he and kevin garnett. Were the number one players like if you watch g. He wasn't he wasn't as good as you know like step on arbour's probably better at that particular point in time. Well like the new year looking forward. You knew that kevin garnett over the next five to ten years was going to be light years better than everybody else. I just go because he was so skinny. Body was still developing whatever. And it's like for you. I'm sure there were guys that were more productive Kawhi leonard i was younger. He was a senator and you had to. You had to close when i go like. Oh eventually he's going to be a four in college and then maybe a rian rose show. It's a it's a hard to read but it is fascinating. You're the perfect example of when i tell people it's a marathon not a sprint. You're you're that you're that guy who's dow still killing it while everybody else's retired trying to find what's next in my life okay so your Your your suburb kid laying city team. I remember my brother was at cal. Talking about recruiting you right. They recruit you some. What was the process like You It was a lot of the it started with a lot of the high. Academic schools recruiting me in the beginning. The ivy league patriot league stuff like that. 'cause i had good grades and that sort of thing and then my recruiting didn't really take off until i somehow got into the reebok top one fifty camp that was in philadelphia and i think it's only because i was a local kid. Someone else dropped out. And i was at the last second replacement and i ended up playing really well there. And after that was when my recruiting really took off when i got started getting looks from from cal stanford Some other high majors Davidson had been on me for a while and so is scheduled. My my visits for the fall stanford was. I thought that that was where i was going to go. is scheduled david just to do my due diligence. But i was like. I can't see myself not going to stanford Took my stanford visit. I thought it was. It was lovely. Had a nice town. And then i think it was like chocolate. Johnny was john Johnny johnson just taken the job he was it was his. I like summer recruiting and then two weeks later Visited davidson just to be Store and i loved it absolutely fell in love with with everything that they did was just one of those like gut things i just new deep down. It was right for me to go there and despite the Despite the insistence from my my father the to go to stanford i committed dave's davidson's a real unique place. I think most people only know it because of staff i'd like literally. They're only knowledgeable. Definitely know anything about it. I got a chance. His sophomore year right before they went to the elite eight at your employees blew up. I did one of their games. And i fell in love with the place. I was so cool. I thought the coolest thing was they had the same thing is notre dame where they had the on campus laundry service. Have that when you're there. Yeah so okay so to the person who's never only thing they know about. Davidson is a notes in charlotte. And i know steph curry went there. You come from philly. What is paint the picture for me of what davidson in really life. I didn't know anything about it. Besides steph went there when i took my visit. I mean i'm from the east. I'd never been down there before And it's it's like idyllic college town feel beautiful. Georgian brick buildings sprawling. Green spaces is really quaint. Main street with like old-timey shops that sell milkshakes molson and stuff like that and it's a really small school is only like two thousand students. My high school is bigger than my college. Which really appealed to me. Because i don't really like the anonymity of these huge universities where you see someone in. You'll probably never see that person again. I like i like knowing my professors knowing my peers. And that's the thing that really appeal to me. And then amid coach mackillop Was kinda like the the final nail in the cost. 'cause i mean i don't know how it was when you're getting recruited doug but a lot of the coaches just like they they tell you what they think you want hear. You know like you're going to get playing time. We think you're such a great player. And i didn't think i was that good at the time and so i was. I was maybe i was a little too down on myself. So when like the major coaches like we see you playing right away. I was like well. No coach. Michael came in like the first thing he said. I'm gonna kick your ass. That was the first thing he said. And i love that like. I really responded well to that. Because i want to challenge means not just going to be nice to me. I want going to bring out the best of me. And that's what he did.

"Ready obviously got fall a you high school season. We're getting ready for the nba. There's a ton of tugboat with the nets and the lakers. If you've been an all star in the last twenty years and you're willing to work for little those are two teams you're gonna play for. I mean the the litany of Of of guys that are. i mean. It's crazy what what they're adding in terms of names whether they comply or not. That's a completely different story. We'll see with rondo now being a laker Lamarcus aldridge being a net. There's they there's some. There's names that you remember in the question is can they still play. I don't know the answers. That on the benches of the lakers and the brooklyn nets. But i wanted to get you this story. it's a really good one. J cohen's a guy who i i know. His uncle and i got to meet his father. And i remember when he was coming up and he ultimately signed a davidson and then was the two time so calm player of the year He went from a guy who was lightly recruited at first too heavy recruited by by high level academic schools goes davidson becomes a hell of college player and then goes maccabi tel aviv but Losses contract you know. They cut him. He circled back and now he's in his third stint this year with maccabi tel aviv. Or in the great teams in all of the world but how he got there fascinating. Let's take a listen to my discussion about his life and career. Here's jay cohen. I jake before we get onto your legendary status currently in israel lend to wear it all start light so your first memories of basketball are wearing went howled what rec center. Gimme that gimme the rundown. My first marina basketball is probably in our basement on the fisher price hoop with my dad and older brother and i remember we would play like one on wanner one onto and if you didn't use your left hand doing a left handed layup block it and if you did use your left hand he would let you score thousand. That's probably my first memory in the basement with fisher price i love. It is a great way to teach. Ambidextrous is is. I'm only going to only gonna throw your shit stands you if you come with the the The wrong hand reinforcing. Good habits how. How much older than us. Your big brother. He's he's about three and a half years older but four grades apart so we actually never were in in school together. Show he with that was he. Was he where you big when you're young. Was he big. When you're young like what was what were you guys like going up He was much bigger than me growing up like being forty years older. That's a big difference. And he was a really good athlete to he played a. He played quarterback darkness in college. So he was a good athlete and he bullied me quite a bit. Grown up both on and off the athletic fields but is good for me. Go like my brother. So my brother's four years older than me and he used to you know and i guess four five by the end of being five grades. Because i stayed back and Used to the same thing. Do all kinds of shitty things like. Hey we're gonna play ball at the elementary school. After you know like four o'clock need is there. And like i'd be there. I go get my good outdoor shoes by ball on. I'd be warmed up. No-one would show up just all kinds of or come home and just locked me out of the house appearance both slack near the house just to just to just now. Did you ever play on his gene growing up. Where you're the little guy with younger guy. Just trying to try to fit it. No no i mean. He wouldn't even let me play with his friends i was. I was always the outcast on big brother. Funny way of teaching essence. As i'm sure you can relate to But yeah it was. It wasn't until he went away to college. And i started high school that we started being friendly to each other. I don't know if he missed me. Or what but or if it was. Because i went on my growth spurt melissa mouse taller than he was. So it's a could have been a bunch of different reasons for that but now we're best friends but looking back on our relationship like when i was in middle school and stuff it was it was rocky. So that's very interesting so you grew owlry when you grow a. I went from my freshman year when i was like what. That's when you're fourteen or fifteen. I guess yeah so. He went away to college like in august. I was like six one. And then he went. He came back for thanksgiving. And i was six six. And he's six five so like i've got those five inches on like four months on three months on my. Gosh you must have been terrible basketball. During that time. I wasn't on any Early you know rankings. Lists was not good. That is very true. Shell was was he goes dark was he. Like a high school. Football star was like fee non. Everybody in the area talked about Guy yes he was. He was like a three sports star. He was the quarterback on the basketball team. Starting small forward on a sorry quarterback on the football team. Small florida the vessel team in. You know like the ace on the mound for the baseball team. So i had some big shoes to follow. And i wasn't nearly the athlete. He was in those other sports. I just was a good basketball player. So i kind of specialized as opposed to him being the jack-of-all-trades trades. So you're in high school your first year girl crazy have good. Nobody's good that you're right you they grow. I stayed back that. I was five. I was yeah. I was like which saw the us five but my finish eighth grade fourteen hundred in three pounds and then in fifteen months right from like 'cause i stayed back when i enrolled in high school i was like five nine five ten nights i went through that and i and i played with a team in la called ball. And i just remember like. I was so bad because my body just would not cooperate with be admi- achilles. Tendons always hurt heels. Always hurt but obviously you know that your growth was important. So you're so your software. Your how good your school i was. I was okay. I had absolutely no muscle on me. I was probably six eight or six. Nine hundred seventy five pounds hundred eighty pounds. I was really thin. And but i had like good touching stuff like that i think i scored eight points a game on the varsity myself year and then the the summer but that was when i first got my like big a you like interest like the big philly teams wanted me to play for them after my sophomore year. So that's kinda got exposed to what real you basketball is like. I played with a team philly. Which is now kahlo. Elite which is was still is as calories team. So that's why. I started playing with that. That was really good for me because that puts you through the ringer. The was the suburban kid plan with. You know the guys from north philly and that was there was absolutely what i needed also. Now who is who is gene played with Maleek wings nerdy. Lindsey tony shaw who else Parish granite denzel.

Theres Always Room For More Than One Leader In A Market
"Interview last night with a guy called peter. Murray who is the ceo of the pf l. the professional fighters league now the pf l. claims to be the number two mixed martial arts business after the ufc and the comment that he made. When asked about you know considering even taking on the ufc because the ufc really owns the market. They are the number one player he said. Yeah but there's always room for more than one leader in the market. Sure they can only be one number one but how many markets do you really know where there's only one brand that represents that market. Not many you know. I mean the only one i can probably think of is maybe google i guess. Even something like amazon is amazon a giant. Yes do they rule the markets. I go to usually but are they multiple online shopping platforms. That brands. that succeed. Yeah there are so. I think the lesson for anyone who's thinking about taking on an industry incumbent which is the gorilla in the in the room is the big company it is possible to take on that guerrilla possible to go into that market because they can be multiple leaders in a market. Might not be easy to take on google. It might not be easy to take on amazon for example but certainly in most markets. I think there is always room for more than one leader.

The Bare Bones HUD for Tourneys and Anonymous Sites
"So the barebones hud has seven elements to it. I'm gonna hit them each one at a time right now but i forgot to mention this earlier before the combat if you go to the show notes page for today smart booker said dot com slash bare bones hud. You can see a youtube video. That i posted there showing exactly how to create the seven element hood for yourself already. So the first element is the note editor now. This is in poker tracker for the no editor is super important because it's necessary for color coating your opponents by player type once you make some kind of read on them also in case you want to put a player note for when you're reviewing hands later on that note editor is important and lastly within the note editor if you've never actually opened up and take a look or taken a look. There is an auto notes feature that list. The hands that your opponent has shown down and how they played them pre flop did they three bit with pocket kings did they call with pocket kings. Whatever might be now. The second element is the player name now of course this is especially useful for tournaments when players. Come and go right as you're playing. You're paying attention to the action or paying attention to another table. Maybe and you might miss that. Bob one-two-three he left the table and is replaced by susan. Seven eight nine but that hud sometimes doesn't catch up for one or two hands so it's a really good idea to see that name. Make sure they correspond when they do. You know those hud stats belong to that player and now you can make some reads based on the base on the percentages to exploit them all right. The third element is the number of hands. Of course the more hands you have on a player just the more reliable. The numbers are in general. I think that reliability kind of begins at eighteen hands. If you're playing six. Max that's three orbits or flooring to orbits right so everybody has seen every position at least twice or three times. You start to develop reads right there. I'm not saying it's one hundred percent reliable. But that's where it begins. Eighteen hands two. Or three rounds. However you can start to understand your opponent after just four hands. Truly if they're v. Pippen forehands is one hundred percent. You're likely against a lose player right likely. Not one hundred percent sure but it's pretty close loose play right. There played for hands out of the four that you've seen them and being dealt if there is zero percent in twelve hands very likely a tight player now. Let's couple this with some other stuff right. If they're veep hip in four hands is one hundred percent. And you're thinking to yourself sky. That's not good enough to know that he's a loose player. Well what if you've been paying attention and you've seen those forehands where he v pipped two times. He called a to bet the two other times he limped and called a raise. Yeah now that you couple the actual actions. They've made with that one. Hundred percent v pip. You are up against super loose and passive fish and it's only been four hands but here's one of the critical things you've got to be willing to change any early. Read that you make. Because as you play more hands their stats are gonna converge to their actual tendencies. And maybe that's around fifty sixty hands or so and anything beyond that one hundred two hundred and you get yet. You're pretty darn certain that those numbers are they're tendencies and you can really start to exploit it then all right. So those first three things were elements not statistical elements but just useful parts of the hud. These next two right here are where the stats start in. These two are the most critical stats to have v. pip and pf are now these an initial read on their player type over time. Like i said everyone's tendencies play out and the numbers converge and you can be pretty confident that that forty slash five player. Yeah super loos fish right the other eighteen slash six team player totally tied aggressive. That's probably what your stats end up in the long run and that other guy thirty three slash twenty-seven yeah super loose aggressive player. Right and that other player even the maniac fifty slash forty two you have super maniacal player now by knowing their player type and just using. Epfr to get you that you can better play the player with your list of general exploits that you know work against each player type

Templates web core vitals become very different. But if you can't change one page without changing a hundred thousand pages. Every decision has a lot more impact. Every vix is a lot harder and you have to sell individual changes in a very different. So there's a couple of things that i wanted to bring up. That will help people of these bigger issues. All right so basically. Life isn't always as simple as i have to go onto one page and make a change. There's the enterprise level websites which you know one page template changes tons of pages. What are some things you can do to avoid making big mistakes. That are going to impact your core web. Buydell metrics one of the things that i created with the help us on the developers at search metrics is something called the consistency school so we had started large-scale scraping websites and running them through the lighthouse tools and tackling for seattle less. How consistent are the elements across pages right so if we look at all your product pages and the elements are different for every single page but you can only make page template changes. You're gonna have a huge problem because if you make one change but likelihood is it's not going to affect or fix all the problems you have with your product ages so it's really important to think about. How consistent are my pages and think about that for every single page type so that you know which pages are easy to sex and which ones are harder defects. I just wanna jump in here. It's my understanding that core web vitals and the page experience ranking factor is not likely to be at the page level. I think and this is a little bit of speculation on my part. But google is giving nuts field data in google search console so i think google might be looking at a particular directory which may have a a page template assigned to it in the aggregate so if you fix one page in its rate. I'm not sure that's going to solve your problem. If the rest of the pages for that page template do not perform as well as you like exactly. I think what you guys are talking about like ants on a bit website just like when you find an aunt in your home if there's one aunt it's problem and squishing that one aunt doesn't solve the problem you need to get to the underlying issue now. If you have one aunt in every room you probably have an infestation and you probably have some really big problems so the more that you can be consistent with your templates and when you make a change. It basically sweeps the entire house. The better off. You're gonna be so look. We have templates. Hopefully when we implement a change that change rose out across all the pages and solves the issues that were having as opposed to solving an issue on one page creating an issue on another. What are some of the other advanced core web vital features. You can think of one of the ones that i have used for. One client where we couldn't figure out which pages were causing the f. I d. issues because it's only field data in. We're getting some data back from search console but not enough to clearly identify. The issue is that you can use the event timing. Api to actually log the f. I d i'm not gonna go into too much detail for how to implement that if you go to bed that dev slash f. i d. there's a rate guide for how to implement that event timing tracking and that will give you all the data you made in order to capture your actually that makes troubleshooting so much easier. That seems like a big deal. When you're trying to figure out what is causing the first input delay the have to understand the sequence of what is being loaded on the page in. That may not always be clear. Read there is timing exercise. There's a little bit of a dance with either you and your developer your developer in your website or whoever. You're working with to try to figure out what is loading when you're having an f. I d. problem. I would say for these large websites. If you're kind of in the enterprise level you really need to look at stuff like real user monitoring you really need to instrument some year code so that you have these metrics to help you diagnose these problems because otherwise you're relying on field data which is not always specific as you would like or you're relying on lab data which is also perhaps not representative of the experience. It's happening out in the field so core web. Idols is not going away. Google is going to periodically reassess the core web vitals and perhaps tweak them a little bit maybe tweak the thresholds so just setting yourself up for success by having in house instrumentation of your site so that you can really see what's happening on your side. I think is a win for enterprise sites so carl. We talked about an advanced topic for co less for f. I d. keeps up for l. c. p. And we talked about this on monday. What are some of the advanced techniques that you're using the solve for largest contemptible pain issues so most of the problems have been between field lap data. And how'd you get lab data closer to feel data because without those to be in close. Elsie p problem diagnosis is almost impossible. Right if you don't know what the elsie p is than. It's really hard to diagnose so what i have started doing is trying a multiple of things trying to get lab field data closer by there have been three or four things that we've been doing. We've been turning off elements so turning off drop downs turning off pop ups and ben running lighthouse reports on that. Sometimes you can't do that on production pages and so that you can do things like you are out parameters where you say. Keep me a off parameter that makes me seeing like i'm a logged in person and then run back through the house tools. That in my experience has been the most successful way of getting lab and field data closer together and that you can actually start the diagnosis. What is causing your lcd issues. And then the third thing is if neither of those to work you could go east if basically custom bigger a logged in user cookie unload the elements that way you get as close as possible to feel beta. That is the hardest one but it's also the one that leaves the facts everyone else. That should be your option of last resort. If you're trying to get that yielded lab closer together. It seems like the issue with l. c. p. is understanding what the element is first. And then there's all sorts of different user states that can affect how that's being loaded you know at the end of the day core web. Vitals is a big harry topic. Google gave us a year's advance notice to try to figure out how we're performing and how to evaluate these metrics. But when you're working on a large site this can be really

Wall Street steadies itself after 4-day losing streak
"And after a miserable day on Wall Street yesterday, let's check in on the markets. They're about to open this morning and we check in with W. B. C's Dave Caruso. What are we in for today, Dave?

The Finer Points - Aviation Podcast
Flying Into a DITCH
"Somebody wrote in saying that flying over water was a hole in their training, and is there anything they can do? Of course they can take anything they can do to prepare for flying over water. In this case in the Caribbean on it brings up a great point because the entire reason we. We created the airplane camp trip. islands of the Pacific northwest was to cover this particular. Particular hole in training. There's just not a lot out there about what it might be like to ditch an airplane or how to prepare, you know we've all read opened the doors before impact and you know, wear your your life jacket, but be beyond that. Will you know what is there so so I will say I off in this sounds like an unashamed sales pitch, but Maybe it is. On the island trip covers all that we get a life raft from winslow, one of these five thousand dollar liferafts that you're supposed to pack on board when you fly over water, we give everybody time in a sea plane, so you can kind of. Impact on the water is like we have ferry pilots on staff. People like Peter Lert who have crossed the north, Atlantic, more than fifty times, and we, we really try to cover this knowledge but I'll do the best I can here in the podcast to tell you some of the major points, and some of the stories that I conveyed those pilots that come to the airplane camp. We kind of a campfire evening talks, and some of those stories. Some of the kind of knowledge we can pass down is is really powerful. so first of all. Let's just cover the basics I mean. If you're not within power off gliding distance from shore, you should be wearing a life jacket and you should probably wear the kind that sailors us that aren't inflated. Of just their little tubes like snakes that go around your neck. and you should take out. The automatic inflates co two cartridge so that if the aircraft fills up with water, the life jacket doesn't deploy in the aircraft right, but that you can easily deployed once. You're clear the airplane. and you should investigate if you're going for long over water flights a liferaft like the one I described from winslow. One of the we do tell people in the ferry. Pilots convey for to us. Is that the Life Jack? The life raft really has to be readily accessible I mean in a perfect world on your lap. Really so you have to have it in a location in the airplane where you can just grab it. It's pretty common knowledge in any survival situation. Ditching included that what you're only gonNA. Have the things that you're wearing. So you know putting that whole picture together. If you're by yourself, you'd probably want to be wearing survival vast full of gear. Maybe dye markers signal mirrors on first aid kits, things like that on and also a lot, a personal afo tation device a PF de around your neck with the. Automatic inflate inflation cartridge out and a life. Raft if need be just. Maybe arm's distance in between the front seat in the seats on the just easily grab. now having said all that I'm GONNA. Tell you a story. The most enlightening story that I've ever heard because there's not a lot of information out there about what it's like to actually hit the water outside of the advanced pilot flight manual where Bill Kirschner talks a little bit about you know ditching in a in a fixed gear airplane which? is most likely. GonNa Flip GonNa hit once, and then Kirschner describes the second hit as a flip, sometimes the first hit the flip. so it's a pretty violent impact outside of that book. I haven't encountered a lot of information but I did see a lecture at Oshkosh. One year, probably the most valuable lecture at ever seen at Oshkosh gentlemen and a two ten who ditched in Lake Erie near put in Bay outside of Cleveland in a to ten, so he had gear, the gear was up, and he ditched. Everybody survived the ditching, and he ditched next to a ferryboat, which is a wise idea. If you're an open water, next to any boat. Really and somebody onboard. The ferry boat captured video, so you were able to listen to this lecture while watching video of the actual event. And he described the landing itself as very very smooth in a retractable gear airplane. He described like someone grabbing the tail and pulling to a hard stop, and he said that immediately after the airplane came to a stop, the water level was pretty much at the Lindbergh. Reference right there at the window. You know the forward window just on the pilot side. And he had forgotten to do two things he'd forgotten to open the doors and he'd forgotten to lock the baggage compartment so because the doors weren't open. The airplane floated there for a second, and he had a chance to turn to everybody and say hey, is everybody okay on? Everyone said yes, under your seat belts, and which point. He opened the door, I think he had to open the window I. The airplane flooded. Now, he was a very big guy, so he was able to lean into the door and get it open. One risk of not opening the door ahead of time would be that you couldn't get it open. Due to the pressure. Until you flooded the airplane but he did say it was valuable to have that moment. You know floating for everybody. Because the minute the door opened the airplane nosedive to the bottom of the lake about fifteen feet down. Everybody Swam Free Except the woman in the very back seat, so in the to ten is a six seater. She panicked and tried swimming up through the window, the plastic window in the baggage compartment so he dove down once he realized someone was missing open to the baggage door because it wasn't locked, forgotten to lock it and pulled her out by her feet. All of this is on video from the ferry boat. It's a it's an interesting story. Because of you know the how it played out for him to have. The doors closed versus open was interesting. And thinking through locking the baggage compartment. If anyone does need to get in there and rescue, you They're going to be able to do that if it's locked so. Anyway I hope that sort of helps, organize thoughts on just flying over water in
Around the NFL
Would Tom Brady to the 49ers make any sense?
"NBC. Sports Boston's Tom. Curran told our old friend Chris Mad Dog Russo on his radio. Show that the chatter chatter connecting. Tom Brady to the forty niners as quote real now again. I heard that in India by the way before went on the air and said it. I had heard that Which I dismissed it as A. That's ridiculous and then I would assume the heard it as well and because he's a master at disseminating information played it. As you know I got an idea. This is crazy but out here you know but that that was as early as Friday Thursday. That was kicking around here. Jimmy Garoppolo the details of it are pretty fascinating the time that current said it was from both sides. Oh of course. Tom Brady wants to play for the forty niners. He's looking around the league possible teams to play for that. I can't come up with a better pick. Not just because he is his favourite teammate. And I mean that's the starting point. The next would be how how good they are and how Santa me everything's raincoat. And the fact that the forty niners have some mutual interest. According to this report is what and put yourself Garoppolo shoes. You have a really. You got traded from Tom. Brady's team across the country. You have this great ending to the season with the niners. Then you play your Tom Brady in two thousand nineteen you blow out your knee. Very frustrating comeback. You improve as a player. Maybe you're not all the way there where you're superstar. Maybe you'll never be that guy but you have a better season than Tom Brady. Your team goes to the Super Bowl and has a double digit lead in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl. And now you're hearing that the guy that you had go three thousand miles across the country to get out from under Mike. Come back to you. That's a tough situation stinks. But I would say that you look back when the trade happened. There were whispers that the forty niners had inquired about Tom. Brady not even whispered. I mean that was out there. And secondly if you're Tom Brady and you you're gonNA leave Josh mcdaniels in this embedded patriots environment for team x and you have no idea what really is happening to the one team. I could trust if I'm Tom Brady going teaming with Kyle Shanahan and seen how that two year process will play out the first one where I thought this is the first brady remember. It makes sense on his side. I don't know how it makes sense for the forty niners but it does make sense for Tom. Brady well there. There is thought that Jimmy G. Kyle Shanahan you know aren't a perfect match where he's not doing what? Kyle wants reading answers on every play and that maybe Jimmy G. doesn't always have the answers wash the fourth super bowl. Look if you're trying to compare the ability to win before the snap or the mental ability of quarterback comparing someone at Tom Brady. You're not going to end up looking great but I think that's some one where Kyle Shanahan would look. That's the advantage that Tom Brady would give to them that he would. He would know all the answers and and as crazy as it is. I mean I'm not putting this as like it's the answer but pf for instance. Had Tom Brady as a much higher rated quarterback last year and. I don't think that's crazy. I think Tom Brady led similar or better level. Brady's entire two thousand nine hundred thousand season under the microscope that Jimmy. Jeez fourth quarter was has been under. And you're going to see a guy who failed over and over again with the New England. Patriots feels tremendously shortsighted. If the niners went this route I mean Brady is going to be what forty three and August. He's showing signs of slippage. Garoppolo is a guy that still in his twenties. What is take? That doesn't make sense right. What what do you do in two thousand? Twenty three cents. I think if you have to think long you don't because if you're Kyle Shanahan you're up twenty eight to three in the Super Bowl you'll lose. And now what are the Falcons? They've never been back. They're not the same your window. That's the thing that's you know. I experienced it from two years ago with the chargers. At twelve and four beating the ravens going New England. It's tied at seven. You feel like okay this is great than Brady gets the best of you. You come back following year and people are picking win the Super Bowl to win the division. You've already be Patrick mahomes once maybe you figured it out with Derwyn Jones and it falls apart. You can't like there is no law window in the NFL FAST. But the so just go get it. Go Win the one championship and worry about one mile scenario to also just indicate that they don't that Jimmy Garoppolo is someone that they're invalid about long-term because I think there is a. There are a number of quarterbacks are there are situations where of course they would not want to jump off a guy in his twenties but if they considered a move. Like saying this one specific. Don't feel great about Jimmy D but I'll tell ya I'll tell you who is excited about this. I mean If there is a perfect situation or to get patriots this is it. I mean this is this is this is. This is what I as a selfish fan would have wanted. I I've said on this podcast. I don't WanNa see. Tom Brady played poorly in any uniform. But I'd rather have played poorly in another uniform and the Patriots and this this story here at least I would think we talk about Patriots fans all the time. It's all you ever bring up. I wish I could jump off of it but this would bring me back in. I mean I think it comes down to this. This cow Shanahan Jimmy. Garoppolo holds them back right now and if he does then sense to look into it. I guess if you're interested US coachspeak but they absolutely believe it is is a better than guy be do. I think my team has a better chance on a super bowl with Tom. Brady or Jimmy Garoppolo next year. Because if I believe. It's Tom Brady. Guess WHO's coming to play quarterback Tom Brady. This is too good having that some pink upright there Jimmy G. wants back with the Patriots as starter. I'm I mean you can't just sell that down the river as an organic happening that feels to me like a prepackaged preplanned plot hatched years

Exposing a War Crime with Justin Watt
"On March. Twelve two thousand six during the height of the Iraq. War full members of the Janabi Family forty-five-year-old forty-five-year-old Qasim. He's thirty four year old wife Factoria and two daughters six year old at deal and fourteen year old. A B were murdered in their home in the Iraqi village. Village of USA fail south of Baghdad. Be had also been right and her remains set a lot. It was widely accepted. The attack had been carried out by local insurgents as such violence was common in the area that was referred to by occupying. Foreign Military is the triangle of death. The American soldier Private First Class Justin. What was stationed in Iraq? At the Thanh months off that Janabi family slaying. Ajayi sajjan confided that one of their fellow soldiers was responsible for the brutal crime. Justin pussies friendships Corre- and David. He's lot but risk but conducting talking. He's uncovered investigation into the matter. He discovered several of the soldiers were involved to varying degrees and made the difficult decision to expose posed them for the American soldiers. Sergeant Paul Cortez Specialist James Baca Private First Class Jesse spillman private first this class Brian Howard and Private First Class Steven Green with band to of planned carried out and covered up the ripened murder of be as well as the massacre of her family. Ole Five individuals faced charges by their involvement and received varying convictions. Green had been discharged from the US army mental instability prior to the crime's coming to lot and was consequently trod in civilian court while the other four perpetrators is faced the US army general courts Martial Green. Who was responsible for carrying out? The Med is sentenced to life imprisonment with no possibility. PF parole he took his life shortly after the remaining perpetrators was sent to military prison to serve a varying sentences. You just what's actions led to mixed opinions from the American public some viewed as a hero while others accused him of being a traitor data and sent him death threats. His decision also impacted the Iraqi paypal creating hostilities. Between the locals insurgents and touring military three Justin has since been medically discharged from the army and has spoken with US candidly about military experience including the Janabi family family murders adding additional context to our episode on the crime. Justin started by telling us how he came to join the military before nine. Eleven by buddy names all and we're GONNA do the steel challenge together. They had a program in the navy. That dead allowed you to join with a friend. She going at the same time in guaranteed you a selection slot to go to buds went through got qualified for that. What I was seventeen at the time and I showed up to maps like the process for joining the military? Here in America's like you'll go through talk to a recruiter you'll do. There's some preliminary testing then you have to go up to maps for you know. Some physical batteries stuff apt to batteries. Stuff like that on the day that I was supposed go to maps. And that's where you sign your contract. My buddy bailed on me completely so I went up there on my own and as it turns out the job it was like a crypto does slash networking like computer type position. That wasn't available anymore and so I was like okay. I'm not going to do this because I was seventeen. you can't join into your eighteen hours in what was called the delayed entry program so you get all your stuff done when you're seventeen and then basically as soon as you're eighteen you ship out. I basically dumpstered the idea. Nine nine eleven happened and like in a serious relationship. You know I had a pretty decent job I was a blackjack dealer. Casino pit boss. The relationship ended and I remember just being in a position where I was just Kinda like okay. Like what am I gonNa do now because like all of my plans kind of like based around future with that person listen and you know. I had no idea what I was going to be doing. And I was like cleaning out my room and I found my body and my original ship date was supposed to be on September eleven and at that point I was just like while somebody else's probably like in my place. I just watched band of brothers. Zoom may be sound like the biggest cliche ever. But you literally after watching that I was like you know I want the hundred and first airborne infantry and if you're not going to give him I'm not going and at at that time the Iraq war kicked off this is like two thousand four. I want to say so it. It just really kicked off in Iraq. Ans- dance they couldn't find people join just as Iraq was a lot bloodier then Afghanistan. And so I got like a twenty thousand dollar bonus for joining the infantry which is unheard of because it's a it's a low like agr- apartment job. Yeah twelve days later from that data I found that I D I was on a plane for Benning to get into training so went through that then Amelie after that the air assault school school has learned a robot of the jobbers which is a big part of the hundred and first does and then got on my unit you know and it was. It was a very different thing to go through all the training knowing that. You're going to war like everybody. They're sergeants that were teaching. Just got back. It was their first combat deployment. mm-hmm there's people that were in the logistical infrastructure of basic training. They were headed down to the hundred. I with me so I know there was a lot of camaraderie. I I think apprehension everyone. Everyone knew with certainty that they were going. Everyone knew that it was popping off over there. So yeah yeah I mean it was. It was a crazy time for sure when we sent in Iraq so the way it worked out is I got down to one hundred I I I. And that's where I linked up with my unit and you get assigned to accompany and everything and that's how I ended up in First Striker Bravo Company the unit that the book was based not got down there on the mmu pre-deployment spin ups. you go out and do more training. You know out in the field and like these stimulated urban combat villages at the National Training C. C. Out in Louisiana we see Anna and you do training pull unit and then as smaller elements. Then you go. I mean usually get stood down a couple of times just because they don't like people knowing exactly when you're going to be leaving with how many people you're going and everything like that just operational security stuff so I wanna say so. From the day that we're seagoing. There is like a couple of week variation we went and we stopped in Germany on the way there and then landed in Saudi Arabia. You did our last combat zero before getting down into into theater which is like make. Sure Weapons Still dialed in. And then yeah. We're down to Iraq doc. We landed in Baghdad. It just a different world. I mean you land there and the war machine is is pretty pretty sophisticated so like by the time we got down there. We'd only been in Iraq in that kicked off two thousand. Three's basically the end of two thousand and four early two thousand and five. They already had this. Main kind of super base built up in in Baghdad. was called striker at the time and there was like a Pizza Hut and green bean copy. It's just weird but then you're like walking around in this area. That feels kind of like you know a military base and then you'll be talking with your friend and then all of a sudden you hear like a a huge explosion. A few hundred meters outside the perimeter. Then you'll hear a bunch of machine gun fire and from a couple of different areas and then you it'll just go silent right and you're like somebody has died at their like. That's crazy I it was just a a weird transition.
Science Magazine Podcast
Getting bisphenol A out of food containers
"I up in our Green Chemistry special edition of the podcast. We have contributing correspondent. Warren Cornwall here with the story about finding a replacement for the common can lining chemical this funeral a or commonly known as EPA these days high. Warren you start with this fulcrum this point where the tab of a can of soda attached to the body of the Cana Soda. Why is that a good place to start the story? I never knew how amazing the science and engineering around making I can was started reporting this story in this particular case. Ace this point where the pull tab is. Attached to the top of an aluminum drink can is subject to these huge stresses. You have to imagine that the inside of this whole can is covered in this. Thin layer of plastic can't break in order to attach this poll tab to the top of the can Dan basically after pound with a machine on the can top to create this little bump and then the pull tab sits on the bump and then you mash that bump flat because the what is saying. It's the most difficult fabrication in the whole universe. But I think he says in their whole universe okay that makes you and the whole universe the people at Sern would appreciate that but in the universe can fabrication for linings. That's their crux. We're GONNA talk about the lighting's the special liner inside of these cans usually contains. BPA OR A. What exactly is the purpose can't ends contained all kinds of material that can potentially be corrosive all kinds of acidic drinks? I don't know if you remember from elementary school. Well experiment where one of your teachers would put a nail inside of a jar with coq a few days later. It'll be gone so yeah stuff is corrosive And apparently the kinds of stuff that we're putting into cans now is even more corrosive than it used to be. All of these kinds of fancy craft beverages energy. He drinks so they don't want to eat holes in the cans and then the flip side of that. Is that if you've ever put a piece of aluminum in your mouth. It tastes weird and you don't I don't want that flavor to go into the food or drinks so the properties a can lining material have our resists corrosion. Obviously obviously what other things are important. Doesn't create any weird flavors of its own. Ideally it's inert so it doesn't react with anything It's inside the can in a perfect doc world. It's not at all toxic. It's still a benign. It has to be as cheap as possible and it has to go on the cans really easily really quickly quickly because they're cranking out cans at a rate of two thousand a minute so BPA. Which I think most people have heard of at this point because of concerns about its effect on health? Health checks these boxes except for the health one. What are the health concerns when it comes to? BPA well the main concern is that it can mimic estrogen when the body encounters BPA it can bind with estrogen receptors. Enough that the body. Can I think that it's binding with estrogen. There's a lot of debate going on about how much of a health risk is really posed by. EPA in the levels that it's founded pardon people's bodies the FDA still allows it to be used in most food related containers with the exception of baby bottles and sippy cups so the is said that the science suggests that it's not really a problem in other settings said the chemical industry and other industry groups have taken that got same message but you have consumer groups environmental groups and some university researchers that have done work suggesting that it can be problematic one of the stats. You mentioned in your story. About how more than ninety percent of people who live in the US have EPA in their urine. We pretty much that'd be a and US And some governments non. US governments have also decided to ban PBA right. You know the only one that I know of its flea abandoned his France right and you know one of the thing. I should know just going back to a comment that you made earlier about. BPA and cans. I've been told that for food cans in the United States about ninety percent of it is non. BPA At this point so food cans like peas and corn drink cans to or know for aluminum. EMINEM drink cans. It's about fifty fifty. Okay they've cut way down on this but about how much. BPA is still out there. Do you know how many cans with US liner are made. Every year they are every month. Yeah estimates are worldwide that we crank out about four hundred fifty billion with a B. Tans every year yeah three hundred hundred and fifty billion of those are aluminum drink cans the other one. Hundred billion are food cans some not small percentage are lied with. That's right you talked to. Scientists at a company called Thou spar that came up with a a new alternative a few years ago and a very unusual way. How did they get involved? Vow Spar in two thousand seventeen was purchased by Sherwin Williams. Okay this company had a business. Making chemical can linings and and one of the significant parts of that business for them was making BP based linings but they and other manufacturers were seeing the pushback from consumers and some governments guest EPA and so they were looking for alternatives. What they were finding is that? The alternatives had drawbacks right. Some of them were for more expensive or didn't hold up as well or did perform in some way that Kanye manufacturers wanted or for if they were trying to find a replacement in the same family of chemicals as BPA that family abyss females. There was concern sern that those chemicals were going to have some of the same health related concerns that beep at everybody was pushing to find a replacement because the biggest fear fear is that governments are going to step in and say no more. BPA Right. I mean the thing that's interesting to me is that they decided to go for it. Because you can imagine a company saying Oh man that could be a really expensive yet and there's a guy in the story who kind of figures in the Tom Tom Mallon and he's interesting because he's very much industry insider he's worked at. This company is whole life but he from the outset said look. We're going to have to go about this a different way. We're GONNA have to reach out to people outside the industry people outside. The industry don't necessarily trust US anymore when it comes to things like BPA safety so we're going to have to think about this a different way. People tell me that this is really unusual. This is a real culture shift. So what did they do to narrow the pool of chemicals out there to replace. VP aligning so they bring in a chemist from the outside who has experience in the pharmaceutical industry and the pesticide industry. So basically he had this long list of bisque dolls. That might work as can liners and the first green that he did was running them through a computer program that would see whether they were likely to fit in the estrogen receptor or not and then the ones that came out as potentially a non estrogens they then sent off for a series of slab screenings. The basic one was a yeast screening where these yeast cells have been engineered to glow when they're exposed to estrogen compound. At that point they have to do more tests to find out if these chemicals are also going to work well as a can liner they finally narrow it down to one candidate. Wow it's called Tetra. Methyl BIS Funeral F or T. Mbps they narrowed it down to this one mechanical and it had passed them basic tests when it came to its ability to affect estrogen receptors. And it was able to stand up to The harsh environment of inside a can. This is where they turn to. Basically they turned to their critics and said you tell us that this isn't safe to wasn't said they were challenging them the way they described it to me as they were coming to scientists and saying we want to build a better molecule for this. What should we do to make sure that it's actually going to be safer? Yeah they posed this question to environmental and public health advocacy groups and they impose that same question to researchers who have done a lot of science studying BPA and they actually took the chemical to their labs and tested faceted out and a bunch of different ways. That's right they set up the payment in a way that the scientists said they kept their independence so so the best example is a endocrinologist at Tufts. Anna Soto has done a lot of work on. EPA and its effect on in breast tissue the company made a contribution to tufts with no strings attached so it was not hurt to her lab specifically and then she came to tufts and said give me money for my research search and she found that there weren't Astra genetic effects from this alternative to be. Yes right she didn't find any evidence that was stragetic And then the secondary element that that was interesting is that she didn't find evidence that the can lining was leaching any of its T. M. B. PF contents into into the liquids. This letting him ICAL has been approved by the FDA for use in food product container. So it's already on the market. It's already something that people have probably encountered in their day to day life. The company has their chemical has been used to line twenty two billion cans since twenty seventeen nine. Wow so a lot of cans but a small fraction of the overall universal cans right going back to the safety testing that we talked about. I think it sounds is wise to approach people who have built up the skills to test for Indian disruption in their labs but is there ever a way to know if something is safe. It's kind of like the bigger question if the FDA's testing aren't necessarily rigorous enough. What should be happening to show that a chemical a safe to go sit next to food that might absorb it? That's an open question. Part of what was interesting to me about. This story. Is that when val spar went looking for an alternative Bernard route for testing their product. There was no road map for them to follow And that's still the case. They can't point to a battery battery of tests and say look. We have jumped through these hoops that everybody has agreed are the hoops that we should jump through did it successfully and therefore we can declare our chemical to be a gold star. Green label chemical. Is there a movement to codify. Something is an endocrine disruptor if it does this and if it doesn't do these things these five things or these ten things and it's not an endocrine disruptor. There are various efforts to come up with better more more rigorous more detailed ways of screening chemicals for possible construction. Regulators would argue that they currently have tools for declaring declaring whether a chemical is an endocrine disruptor or not and they're working on improving them so it's not like they're saying that their ways the the only way and there's no improvement to be done right our other companies going to follow this model of looking for chemicals to replace something that people have a lot of questions sweat and then turning to people outside industry to test it for health concerns. I don't know I mean I've talked to some people who've said that they think it it's a promising model. They think that the experience of Alice bars had suggested a company can do it successfully. But you know I've talked to other people who've said that there are companies who are working to develop greener safer chemicals but have really chosen to do it internally and keep it to themselves salves partly because there is a concern that if you say that you're trying to replace one of your chemicals with something safer you're bringing attention into concerns about safety of the clear curly us. Well thank you so much more and I sure thank you Sarah. Warren Cornwall is a contributing correspondent piece in Washington State.

Meet Russian Composer Sergei Prokofiev
"Russian composer. Sergei PROKOFIEV wasn't born in Russia. He was born in the country of Ukraine in eighteen. Ninety one on an estate called. Son Sova PROKOFIEV's father had moved from Russia to manage the estate. His mother was a pianist. She gave him his first lessons. prokofiev started writing piano music when he was five and when when he was nine his parents took him to Moscow to see his first opera. The moment he got home he started writing operas himself. But it wasn't until years later that PROKOFIEV. PF got an opera performed professionally in Chicago. Prokofiev was accepted at the famous Saint Petersburg Conservatory of Music at the age of thirteen. which meant he was much younger than everyone else in his class? He also also went around letting everyone know how good he was so he didn't make many friends and he gave his teachers a hard time to in fact his piano professor nearly threw him out for improving on other composers music by adding bits of his own but when he graduated from the Conservatory Prokofiev showed them all by winning the top prize and he did it by performing a concerto. He wrote Few years later after the Russian revolution came along per copy of headed for the United States. That trip took four months all the way across Russia by train then by ship to Japan in San Francisco and after that he took another train to New York one copy of got there. He was a hit as the analyst and the composer and after a few years is in America Prokofiev moved to France. He gave concerts all over Europe and made trips back to his country where he started getting some interesting work. Russia was now part of the Soviet Union where there was a brand new movie industry. Some of PROKOFIEV's best music went into film. Scores Prokofiev also got work writing ballets. A Valet Company asked Prokofiev for Romeo and Juliet but they wanted to change the plot. They didn't like how the lovers died at the end of Shakespeare's play so in the first version of PROKOFIEV's ballet they lived happily ever after but by the time. Romeo me when Juliet finally made it to the stage. The ending was back to the way Shakespeare Road at work in the longer he stayed away. The more prokofiev realized how Russian he was even in France all his friends were Russian and he liked to do Russian things. One of his favorites was chess for coffee. If even played chess matches by mail and by telephone so he went to live in Moscow which made him the only composer to move back to the Soviet Union

Zimbabwe Continues Its Economic Downward Spiral
"Support for this podcast and the following message come from cohnresnick whose business of baseball and original MLB video series shares key insights on the business side of America's America's pastime for a game changing strategies to help your business visit cohnresnick dot com slash MLB. The family of Zimbabwe's former leader Robert Mugabe burried him this weekend he was in power there for almost forty years and after he died people hoped for a new start but life subway hasn't gotten any better last last week city officials cutoff tap water in the capital city. Harare Andrew Meldrum is Africa editor for the Associated Press Sixteen years ago. He was expelled from Zimbabwe Walkway recently. He went back to look around at the country that he'd covered for decades. Meldrum told me the Water Shutoff in Harari is the result of both drought end economic economic crisis. There's no water going through the pipes. People were lining up to pump water from wells to wash their clothes in brackish streams or ponds so were seeing a city and a country that is really suffering from huge problems from an economic downturn as as I say you know no electricity in the capital for as much as nineteen hours a day no water. This is is something that was just unthinkable people. When I was living there I would imagine having spent so many years in Zimbabwe. You have lots of friends there. What are the differences in their lives since you've been. La well those of my friends who are still in Zimbabwe. They have experienced a roller coaster. Since I was expelled they they have experienced hyperinflation of more than a billion percent inflation Yaha and also they experienced something surprises in political situation they saw Robert Mugabe fall from power and there was a tremendous amount of optimism and excitement to think that that things were going to get better and now two years later at the death of Robert Mugabe. They're saying will actually things aren't better at all and the government under Emerson Mnangagwa's has has not achieved economic growth or an improvement in things so they're they're disappointed so the the question is why not I mean I remember the optimism awesome. People saying the country will be more free. The country will develop economically. It's Mugabe essentially. Many people said that's been holding us back and then you're saying but in two years nothing's happened why not well. Robert Mugabe left but the same party ZANU. PF and the same military military are running the show and they are not making the kind of substantial fundamental changes in the way the country is run that will will improve things for the average. Bob weigh-in one thing that was interesting that I'd like to highlight was a doctor who was calling for a strike to get higher wages. He was abducted he was tortured and he has now been released because there was an outcry amongst the medical community and throughout Zimbabwean of course it's great that he has been released but it it was one of a series of abductions of government critics in in recent months so it shows that there is a level of political repression still in Zimbabwe. What do you think happens next in in symbolic way. Is there some political leader political party waiting in the wings that has the potential to turn things around I don't see that political leader waiting waiting in the wings and it might be further in the wings than I can see at this point you know things are going to come together so that the country returns to the kind of prosperity that I saw it but I think it's going to take quite some time Andrew Meldrum. Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you Noel Andrew Meldrum the A._P.'s Africa editor joined us on Skype from Johannesburg.
Science Magazine Podcast
Nonstick chemicals that stick around and detecting ear infections with smartphones
"Hello. This Welcomes the science podcast for may seventeenth two thousand nineteen. I'm Sarah Crespi this week show Meghan. Cantwell talks with science writer Saratova's about a nonstick chemical that sticks around in groundwater, and I talk with sham. Ota about his science translational medicine paper on using a smartphone. So listen for ear infections. I'm here with Sarah helps who wrote this week's feature to talk about how a small group of citizens in Rockford Michigan uncovered groundwater contamination in their town. And with the greater implications of this discovery are thinks much joining me. Sarah, thanks for having me, Meghan, of course. So could you talk about what prompted these citizens to investigate whether the shoe company factory in their town? Wolverine worldwide had contaminated their water in two thousand and nine wolverine worldwide announced that they would be closing their tannery, which had been inoperational for over a century. And the citizens were requesting the company I do a comprehensive environmental assessment of the property before the demolition. They knew from other tannery closures that Henry's often use hazardous substances when they're transforming rawhide. Hides into leather. And so they wanted to be sure that those same substances had not been sort of left behind on the tannery grounds. They were told that because there was no evidence of contamination on the property, that there was really essentially, no way require that testing be done. Meanwhile, will Verena had said there was no known contamination on the property. They asked the city to assess the site, but they did not want to instead they went and got the help of a scientist and launched their own investigation. What did they find from this, they uncovered helped uncover some of the highest levels of Pecos contamination in drinking water wells anywhere in the country and after many years of trying to get the company to test, the tannery grounds discovered that the tannery grounds are also contaminated with pitas, what exactly is p fasten? How long is this chemical been in production p bosses are a class of chemical? Nls known as per in Pali fluoro- alkyl substances. They were first synthesized by American chemists in the nineteen thirties and forties and their salient chemical feature is that they have a carbon fluorine bond, and that's among the strongest of all chemical bonds. It doesn't degrade naturally an environment that can be very useful for some products at lens durability. And also, these compounds can repel water and oil and stains, and so they're widely used in products, such as firefighting foams, nonstick, coatings, carpets, food, packaging, even dental floss some dental floss, it was discovered recently, there are over four thousand of these compounds. But the two most widely studied are called PF OA sometimes referred to as PICO and PFOS those two are no longer in production in the US. What are the impacts of these? Goes on human health were still looking into that. There was a massive epidemiological study called the seat health project, fat looked at people exposed in West Virginia and Ohio, they were exposed to fella, and their drinking water. And in that project what they found was a probable link to six conditions that included high cholesterol, all sort of colitis by ROY disease, stickler cancer, kidney, cancer, and pregnancy induced, hypertension initially, a lot of the Pecos research, focused on these communities, where there had been this high level of exposure, more recent studies, have started looking at the general population, and I think that that's where this gets really interesting because what they're starting to find is that studies are suggesting that even people exposed to what might be referred to his background levels of p fusses show, negative health effects, most interestingly and may be most concerning laid. Some of these negative effects are on the developing fetus babies. So researchers are saying that it can affect, for example, the immune system and these populations. Is there a standard level for what's considered a dangerous p fast level or is that something that's still also being determined? That is very much being determined and a believe it was two thousand and nine the EPA established a health advisory level of six hundred parts per trillion of PF. Oh. A and PFOS combined drinking water. And then in twenty sixteen. They dropped that level significantly to seventy parts per trillion and that in twenty eighteen a branch of the CDC came out with a new study suggesting Twenty-one parts per trillion for PF away and fourteen parts per trillion for PFOS, and then you have some researchers one at Harvard saying one part petroleum is where that level should be. So there's a lad of conversation around. What is a protective level in drinking water, this investigation in the small town has also prompted other areas to look into what their p Fasces levels are, and what has this unveiled one of the interesting consequences of the concerned, citizens work is that shortly after the state of Michigan launched what I believe is the most comprehensive statewide survey searching for pizzas, and they found is that here in Michigan. Nearly one point four million residents are drinking water from orces, contaminated with pitas. It's also showing up and things like foam, that's on our rivers. And so there have been a number of advisories. Do not eat befo. Don't touch the phone fish advisories, dear advisories. It's really extensive ubiquitous exposure to these compounds. And then other states also. Oh, are just starting to look, but nobody has looked quite as comprehensively as the state of Michigan has right. It interesting that all these investigations are being prompted but this also isn't the first time that p asses have been under investigation happened several decades ago as well. Right. Are you referring to the DuPont trial? Yeah. Sometime around nineteen ninety nine early two thousands a cattle farmer in West Virginia suspected that something was going on. Some of his farm land had been purchased by DuPont and not long after that his cattle died, and he wasn't able to get much help locally. And so he ended up going to a Cincinnati-based Turney who sued the company and in the process of that he was able to obtain a lot of internal documents from DuPont. And what he found in those documents was that both DuPont, and three who. Had been making pieces as well. Head Ben documenting negative health effects from exposure, experienced by humans and animals, and that they hadn't done enough to make this available to the PA, for example. And so the attorneys sent these documents to the EPA, and subsequently DuPont, was fined, and three m was fined believe a year later, was around that time that both companies agreed to voluntarily phase out PF away and PFOS. So when they phased them out, they replace them with a different chemical is this one actually safer persists lessen the environment. Well, that is a matter of conversation. They replaced PF away and PFOS those two compounds are known as long chain pieces. They replace them with shorter chain passes. So molecules with fewer carbons and. What we do know is that those carbons don't bio accumulate the same way as the longer chain compounds. And for that reason, there's an assumption out there that these are safer, but there are studies, just starting this is just starting to be studied suggesting that this might not be the case and the national toxicology program. For example, is in the process of starting study of believe it's one hundred twenty five of these lesser known. Short chain compounds to see if they really are safer than the longer chain compounds after this, this fine that they received were their cleanup efforts, or is there, a way to clean up these P asses from water supplies. What we know is that you can use something called granular activated carbon to filter out in particular longer chain passes, so PF away, and PFOS from drinking water, however. That approach. It has variable success with the shorter chain passes which can sometimes break through the filter and they can break through more quickly. So one of the things that water systems are starting to look at is using perhaps a combination of granular activated. Carbon with reverse osmosis, which is a little bit more effective at filtering out short chain passes. All of this though is very expensive. And so that has really put especially some of these smaller municipalities in a tough spot, and others Superfund cleanup sites that kind of thing is there any sort of fund that these local communities can tap into that ole pay for this remediation, one of the things is that because pizza's is not as needed as a hazardous substance. It doesn't qualify as far as I know for cleanup funds through Superfund now, some states are starting to pass their own legislation. In New York, for example, does designate FOSS as a hazardous substance so you can get funding through there. And then the other thing that states are starting to do is actually sue the manufacturers to try and recuperate some of the costs of updating their drinking water systems. Would you say this whole investigation all across the country is still kind of the first step of finding where these sites are? And then the next step of cleanup is still a little bit murkier. Yes. That's very true. Historically are understanding of pizzas and exposure has really been concentrated in these areas around particular very few limited number of military, bases, and also communities that are near manufacturing facilities, and what we're starting to find now is, especially as we have the tools to detect passes at lower levels were finding that these are in drinking water supplies and places, people would never have suspected. But not everybody is looking. And so that's one of the things that I think different states, and different municipalities will be grappling with for years to come. Thank you so much. Sarah. Yes, thank you. Sarah helps is a freelance, writer and senior editor at undock. You can find a link to her story at signs MAG dot org slash podcasts.

Plastic pollution peril, symptom of worlds out-of-control chemistry experiment: top explorer
"Explorer poll rose is usually found in the world's wildest places where he works with scientists to find solutions to climate change. But for the last two weeks, though, he's been in downtown Geneva in Switzerland at a major u n conference to encourage countries to ban widely used toxic substances and plastic pollutants. He's been talking to Daniel Johnson from you and news about what the average person can do to make a difference. So I'm here at the conference apart is here in Geneva for basil Rotterdam, Stockholm Convention because of my interest in discovering pollutants in the wall places. There's something about it. You're in these places. Imagine the beautiful monochrome polar life is not many colors. It's restful, and peaceful and exciting at the same time or being at CEO being on beaches wherever we are in. We're in the world's most pristine places, and yet you turned the corner. And we discover pollution either. What is invisible such? As all of our water samples, we take on all of our experts all over the world contain nanoparticles plastic. We can't see it. But we know it's in that water sample or just a few weeks ago. I came out from the jungle in Costa Rica, the Corcovado why it's an amazing place four different kinds of monkeys and sloths and birds of all kinds come out from that were everything was pristine, and as soon as we hit the beach. What did we see plastic is a disaster? So I'm here to help understand and communicate what is going on with persistent organic pollutant. You've talked about persistent organic pollutants or pops. There are a few of them that are going to be or hopefully going to be listed as a banned substances. Let's talk about if you them one of them is he f- a do you notice as well as penta deca fluoro-organic acid apparently easy for you and dictaphone which is an easy one. That's a pesticide. That's used in farming fatigue, vegetables and cotton, so widely used highly toxic. What are you hoping to get from this conference of? Parties meeting here in Geneva meets every two years while I'm really hoping that we get these chemicals listed and indeed band. I mean who would wanna live in a sort of giant global out of control chemistry experiment, and but for the good work being done here the counselor parties, that's exactly how we would be living. So I'm hoping that they get listed properly and then managed properly in the thing with the thing with the conventions is they provide a sort of comedy nominators shared platform for leaders and decision makers and industry to make smart informed decisions. Right. So how many leaders are we talking about? I mean, how many people have signed up to the Basel Rotterdam stock bottles lives. One hundred ninety six Rotterdam is one hundred and fifty nine and Stockholm is one hundred eighty one. So it's a force to be reckoned with. It's a global network of smart people really making a difference keeping us safe that brings me to another thing that I remember you saying while ago, how are there parallels with aspects doses? And today's unseen threats with this part of the. We do here is to make the invisible visible. You see something like PF away. And this unfortunately falls into this soup of acronyms one. Immediately turns off one of the good bits of work. They do here the council. Parties is trying to decode all that. So that we can understand it properly as everywhere it's in cookware. It's in sofas. It's in foam for firefighting and all the rest of it. And this kind of thing is out there. But we don't know it. But for the work of the firefighters, it was the firefighters let the PF L LA campaign because they were using it regularly. Of course in their firefighting foam, it's usually -ffective and their colleagues. We're getting sick too, many of them getting sick, and it became blindingly obvious. There was something wrong with this. So that's what's driven the point to come on. Let's get this stuff listed, and then banned simply with a specialist. It's in buildings. It's in our brake drums on cars. It said some of our pot work and all the rest of it. And I have a little bit of a history with a specialist because I was an apprentice for Motor Company in nineteen sixty. As in England. And we used a specis to insulate the tools from the big machines. And I remember then we would drilling machine and then we'll take an air hose and blow it I'm believable. Then a few years later still in apprenticeship it was replaced by something else. I forget the name of and we were still blowing around June that period. I suddenly learned that in the nineteen thirties as best as was a regulated substance because of the healthy facts were documented so as taken all of these years for people to say come on. We've got to do something about it. And I met some people outside who actually victims of aspects doses. And it was quite moving to meet them and realize they're here petitioning for smart decisions to be made in that illustrates one of the many challenges that counselor parties face one of the things that we've learned from this conference of parties is that plastics can absorb these persistent organic pollutants such as DD dog sins that frequently found in marine litter. So how is that initiative coming along here at the conference of parties to clean up marine? Plastics. It's interesting, isn't it that now the plastics awareness has reached such a high point? I've never seen anything like it with the global environmental issue. I mean, everybody go to any school in industry, anywhere. People are talking about plastic tickly, marine, plastics. And I'm delighted they're focused on the way that plastics can become sort of super polluters. You see the big things at know. I've been in remote places with the most perfect tuna blue water, we call it look at that. And the reefs of I live sharks everywhere, you know, top predators amazing life, and all of a sudden a whole bunch of plastic will come floating by raft of it. But we should know we must let people know is that as well as the big lumps plastic drifting by wants to have been seen long enough and begin to breakdown they become like, magnets and become pockets of super pollution. Some absolutely delighted that the council parties are focusing on marine, plastic and the first thing we can do is stop pudding as much plastic in the series. We do is no excuse for it. And I've seen that change in behavior. Now, we will. Wouldn't think of putting an empty water bottle on the beach and leaving? It would we we wouldn't think of putting a plastic box or food container somewhere in over full litter-bin and let it blow into the sea. There is a change in our human behavior, an industrial behaviors changing, we're looking all of the world's rivers and with the benefit of remote. Sensing we can now watch this material coming out of certain rivers. So that means we know where to go and stop it and start finding sensible alternatives law sensible alternative, I'm just back from Lubiana where I was in a plant where they take hundreds of thousands of abandoned fishing nets and turn them by great chemistry, turn them into nylon. Which is exactly the same as oil on. And I make luxury goods from it says leading through example and profit making people love it. I was going to ask you about what we could actually do normal people in the street people who haven't been taps inspired as you have by the natural wonders of the world, and maybe the solutions. You've seen here and there and the ones that you've just talked about what can people in the street do every day? Well, it is worth looking at the sustainable development goals. Look at target twelve point five which is all about substantially reducing the amount of waste, we produce and use more recycling and the way to do that. I mean, we all get frustrated don't me go out of your house. And you you go to put your plastic there, and you can there, and you you traveling on the or do these things and there's nowhere obvious to recycle them.
