"By Liberty Mutual Insurance. I'm Jennifer Kuiper in Chicago around a dozen people are dead in Ukraine after a barrage of Russian missiles struck in more than a dozen regions. BBC News correspondent Paul Adams is in Kyiv. It's been almost four months since the last attack in Kyiv in three short hours a growing sense of normality was shattered. This is the first time missiles have landed right here in the center of Kyiv. And these were not military targets. The children's playground through the trees, part of the university of Kyiv over there, nearby, a huge crater in a place where children come to play. Florida's governor pledges state support for hurricane Ian damaged businesses and homes as Lee county sheriff carmine marceno says rescue efforts there continue. Detectives are working around the clock to determine what they in this area when the storm hit. And we're working with family members and friends and it's a process. So I appreciate everybody being patient with that process. At least 127 deaths are blamed on hurricane Ian in Florida. Former D.C. police officer Michael fanone, who was injured while responding to the January 6th attack on the U.S. capitol, gave CBS News access to a secretly recorded audiotape of a meeting with House Republican leader, Kevin McCarthy, war from CBS, Scott mcfarlane. 6 months after the attack, for none has heard arguing to top House Republican Kevin McCarthy about the role some political leaders played inciting the riot. I mean, unfortunately, Tim, I agree with you, the problem is it is political because it happened here on Capitol Hill and it involved a political movement. It involved a group of extremist right-wing element of our American society, which was mobilized by politicians. And that's just a fact

"Here are full of patients with dengue fever. It's worth remembering Ariel was speaking before hurricane Ian hit Cuba and the hardships he referred to were only expected to get worse now. Immediately after the storm, government teams in the army were in the streets to clear away the debris and chop up felled trees on the roadside. Yet Cuba's dire energy crisis can't be fixed so easily. With rural areas widely damaged, food production and distribution will be affected too. These have been some of the toughest few weeks many Cubans can remember. For the young, perhaps the hardest they've ever known. However, there will likely be even harder ones ahead. We'll grant with that report from Cuba following the devastation of hurricane Ian there. You're listening to NewsHour from the BBC I'm Rebecca kesby. President Putin has accused the Ukrainian intelligence services of being behind the attack on the kerch bridge between Russia and Crimea yesterday, the huge explosion on the 12 mile crossing damaged the rail line and sent part of the road section plunging into the sea. The bridge was built after Moscow annexed Crimea in 2014 and has been a critical supply route for the Russian army in southern Ukraine, while hours after that attack came a barrage of Russian missiles into a civilian areas of the Ukrainian city of suburbia overnight. The BBC's Paul Adams sent this report from Kyiv. For the second time in four days, emergency services faced a grim task in zapper Asia at one location on the outskirts they found a gaping hole in a 9 story apartment block. It was 2 o'clock in the morning. Katarina ivanova said it was chaos. We ran out into the street, a neighbor ran out with her eldest son, and she screamed at her husband was dead. Their apartment fell into hours. Nearby, volunteers helped to clear the remains of a private house obliterated in another strike. Ukrainian officials said the damage was caused by 12 missiles launched by Russian aircraft. Moscow said the targets were military and included what it called foreign mercenaries. But many of these attacks seem indiscriminate, more than 60 civilians have been killed in and around zapor Asia in the past 9 days. President zelensky called the latest attacks absolute evil, perpetrated by savages and terrorists. They came as Russian investigators examined what caused yesterday's huge explosion on the vital kerch bridge, linking Russia with the occupied and annexed Crimean Peninsula. Repair work goes on and some road and rail traffic has now resumed. The BBC's Paul Adams, while the city of zabara is close to the front line of the fighting in the zaba rich region which is one of the territories Russia has illegally claimed to have annexed and large parts of it are under Ukrainian control. Earlier, we spoke to one resident of the city, we're not naming her to protect her identity, but she told us of the terror last night's attacks caused for people there. The first shell was around 10 o'clock in the evening. It was one successful missile and one was hit by our air defense. And then for our slater at two o'clock, I was not asleep yesterday because you know it was appealing that something was gonna happen. I was awake. And it was 11 missiles all over the city. So there was no district without a shelling. I live next to some critical infrastructure. And that's why the place where I live suffered more. So I heard actually all 11, kids and they were pretty close. And the building that you saw today, I know really this place. It's close to the volunteer center, Ryan vault, and this is a huge residential area when the war started. People said that the right bank of the people. So it's supposed to be more safe and actually the most of the missiles that arrived to the city yesterday were at the right bank. So the Russians tried to show us that there is no safe place. They try to do everything that people be afraid of their lives of their children. So this is how it is actually. Now I see there are less people in our city than in March and February. You talk about it being traumatic for the children, but I mean, it must be terrifying for everybody and the strain on people's mental health must be, you know, almost intolerable. I mean, just hearing you there saying that there were 11 missiles all fired at the same time, you must have felt like you were surrounded. You know, we are, we could use to eat. You know, and we have very quick reactions. When I go to sleep when I go to bed in my bathroom, for example, I have a sweater, I have some pants, socks, so in case of shelling, I go to my bathroom, my dress up quickly, and then I'm ready to be at the safe place. So in the shelter, or I don't go to the shelter, I stay in my apartment, just in the safe place. So, but we are always ready. And this is how the life goes. And just before we spoke to you, in fact, you said you could hear the sirens going, and I just want to repeat that if you need to go at any moment, then just do it. No, no, no, that's fine. This fine, I control the situation. I would tell you. I mean, the attack that happened last night, we know that there's been quite a few people killed. And then many, many, many more injuries which I presume a pretty bad injury, some of them will be pretty serious injuries. Do you get a sense? Honestly, I would tell you that 17 people, you know, I don't believe that. I think that it's only 17 bodies that were found under the debris. I'm sure that much more people died unfortunately that night because there are places in the residential area where private houses were, you know, the houses are not exist. So people and all the stuff around, it just disappeared. When you see them 17 or 80 or 80 people, so it's not true. It's much more because they attack residential area at night when people are at home sleeping in their beds. And what they are doing now also, the Russians attack infrastructure, civilian infrastructure, at daytime, for example, regional gas company at time when most of the workers are at their places. And this is actually again the plan. So they want people to leave the city and then just enter as they think that it's supposed to be their territory. But so we are, I don't know, we know sometimes. It's courage or stupidity, but in our city, people are really brave, so we don't we don't

"Also ordered a full investigation. Paul Adams reports. Coming on the back of weeks of mostly good news from the battlefront, the site of the crippled burning kerch bridge is a massive additional boost to morale. How did it happen? This evening a presidential adviser here in Kyiv blamed infighting and rivalry in Moscow as branches of the security establishment seek to blame each other for their failures on the battlefield. But a former senior British Army explosives expert told me it looked more like a highly successful Ukrainian sabotage operation. Russia has a new commander in overall charge of the war in Ukraine. General Sergei sura vikin heads Russia's aerospace forces and has overseen operations in southern Ukraine since the summer. His appointment follows a string of Russian defeats, including in the south, general sura vikin came to prominence 5 years ago when he commanded Russian troops in Syria. There have been reports of at least three more deaths on another day of mass protests against the Iranian authorities that have erupted after the death in custody of a young woman. The peace of the demonstrations appears to have picked up. Here's Castro nagy. In one video posted on social media a young woman is seen losing consciousness on a pavement. Apparently, shot in the neck with other protesters trying to lift her and take her to hospital. In the western city of sanandaj, at least two people have been killed. One was a driver of a car who was shot dead at close range, reports say the army has been brought in to help with other security forces. Shopkeepers in several cities have shot their shots in support of the demonstrators, including significantly in Tehran's bazaar, who are protesters set fire to at least kiosk and chase the security forces away. The South Korean military is described North Korea's latest launch of two ballistic missiles as a serious provocation that hampers prospects for peace on the Peninsula, the short-range missiles, the 7 such launch by Pyongyang in the last fortnight were fired in the direction of the sea of Japan. Japan's defense minister of toshiro ino told reporters that North Korea's actions risked peace and security and were unacceptable. Since the end of September, in this short period of time, they have launched missiles 7 times, escalating their direct provocative actions. These actions by North Korea are a threat to the peace and security of our country, region and the international community, an absolutely can not be tolerated. You're listening to the BBC News there on WNYC and I'm Tiffany Hansen in the WNYC newsroom. A Republican lawsuit could upend a New York law that allows anyone afraid of catching an infectious disease to vote by absentee ballot. WNYC's John Campbell says the next hearing is scheduled for this coming Wednesday. The judge Diane freestone, she used to be the vice chair of the Saratoga county Republican Party. So there's some concern on perhaps the democratic side that she could side with Republicans, but that's what appeals courts are for and this certainly will work its way through the appeals courts. If the law is overturned, hundreds of thousands of voters in New York who were planning to vote by absentee ballot could be left in limbo, the New York civil liberties union says it's an attempt by Republicans to sow chaos before the election. Lawyers representing the GOP say they're trying to fight for their candidates rights. And for men who work for law enforcement and military agencies in New York and New Jersey have past affiliations with the anti government extremist oath keepers. And will not be fired. WNYC Matt Katz has more. Last year, WNYC and gothamist investigated local ties to the oath keepers based on membership roles obtained by an anonymous hacker. We identified dozens of police officers and first responders from the two states. At the time, officials vowed investigations, more than a year later, investigations into four people confirmed to have been listed in the logs to NYPD officers, one volunteer with the New York guard, and one Hudson county, New Jersey detective, are complete, and the men have been cleared. One NYPD officer supervisor said the officer actually joined the oath keepers to investigate the group. And the mets face off tonight against the Padres in game two of the wild card series. And you might want to take a jacket if you're headed out to city fields, we're looking for clear skies, a low of 47, it will be chilly after the sun goes down. That's for sure tomorrow. Sunny skies and a high of 62 for another bright fall day. Right now, still holding on at 57 in the city. Picture this, a genetic disease runs in your family. Your doctor warns you that if you try to have a child, that child is likely to inherit the disease, but new gene editing technology could change your child's fate. Critics say this technology will exacerbate inequality, pressure everyone into editing their children to stay competitive and will meddle with the most basic aspect of our humanity. Our DNA, others say with safeguards against abuse, this technology could benefit us in a host of ways. In that context, we debate this question. Should we use gene editing to make better babies? Thanks everybody for joining us, and today we are examining the science and the ethics of a new reality. The fact that we humans now have the capability, and perhaps we should call it the power to change our DNA, all because of stunningly fast developments in the field of gene editing. Yes, there are rules and regulations being written about this all of the time to try to catch up to where the science keeps going and different countries are doing that

"Episode 18. Today we have an interesting topic to discuss. It's all about artificial intelligence and machine learning. I'm joined as ever by intercom chief park officer mister Paul Adams, Paul, how are you? I'm good. Thank you. And today we have a special guest, mister fergal read, who's our director of machine learning, fergal, how's it going? It's good that I'm really delighted to be on this podcast today, looking forward to getting into it. Excellent. You're Hank, you're like our first or second ever guest. So you should feel very, very grateful. It was very special. Okay, well, it's kind of start at the end in a sense. The AI heart machine is once again an overdrive, it would feel. This happens every few years for my vantage point. But there's still I can see genuinely happening is people are creating a lot of art. Like the Dolly sort of generation, how it was kicked off while a truly and it is breathtaking some of the actual creative imagery. And even I saw the other day, there was a marketplace for Dali prompt, where you could literally buy a prompt that create images for you, which is like as met as it gets. And then more practical sense, ghetto co-pilots can all write your code as you're writing, which is pretty incredible. I've played with GPD tree from OpenAI and I've asked the questions and let a craft a little paragraphs and stories for me and it's been pretty impressive. I guess if we just zoom back up a little bit, what's actually going on has something happen in the last while it's just got to do it and in particular chain of events that has unleashed. What's up? Yeah, so a difficult question, a complex thing to unpack. There is just there's a lot going on. There's so much investment into this area of AI and machine learning across a whole ton of companies. So it's almost difficult to unpack exactly what's happening. If you look at archive for people put their machine learning papers, there's like a torrent of new stuff coming up every day. So it's difficult to kind of tread a narrative through that. My own personal opinion, I would say that for past, maybe 5 years, we've seen sort of sustained progress of something new and something exciting, which is really like neural network driven technology and really starting to come into its own and starting to be useful. And so you mentioned GPT-3 OpenAI. That's a couple of years ago now. That was what we call a large language model. So just a big neural network that's trying to predict and the next word in a sequence of words that it's seen. And they were just scaling that up. They just added more and more compute to and it started to do amazing things. So maybe just this is very well done. But a couple of additional definitions. So you're adding more computers out more CPU power like trail more. Yeah, yeah, exactly. So people are using GPUs. The problem is for the last ten years. I remember when I was in college being the graphics version of CPU. Exactly. Okay, okay. Bring it down a bit. I'm trying to include everyone here. Okay, all right. That's fair. So yeah, so I guess to go back a long way, we had CPUs in our computers, the brain of our computer, really, really fast at doing general purpose things. And maybe in the late 90s, primarily driven by video games and stuff, we had this mass market of adoption of these like GPUs or graphics processing units. Like a video cards and shit like that. They like Nvidia cards and your treaty FX card and everything. And they were really good at making graphics for a computer games. And then inserted the early 2000s and people were kind of like, oh, you know, they started operations we do for video games. They're really good for like matrix multiplication and it turns out that the dots are the stuff is really useful also for sort of operations you need to do when you're training a neural network. And so a long time later, Nvidia's stock value goes like trigger roof because there's an AI revolution and a crypto money replication as well. First and period of time you same current through both. You referenced a new uptick, I guess, in work on neural networks. I feel like I heard about them when I was in college back in the day. There has been more work put into them, has emerged as the primary way to do machine learning through an alternative that we've moved away from. What's going on there? Yeah, I would say that there is an alternative we moved away from. Now, I don't want to oversell neural networks. Neural networks are like the new hotness and like all the break trees you're seeing in the last 5 years are almost all the breakthroughs are sort of like neural networks. GPT tree is like a huge big neural network. Everything you've referenced earlier. However, that's a subsection of machine learning that the work to machine learning team here though is an intro. Neural networks is maybe like 30% of what we do. We're using the same logistic regression stuff for predicting what someone's going to do next. Okay. So the mix out there in production. But the newest of the stuff for particularly writers unstructured data, stuff like text, masses of text are like images or sounds. And neural networks of they're definitely now the best way to deal with data like that. And so the breakthroughs and the stuff you're seeing, the visual stuff, the sound, stuff that the text synthesis. You need a massive model that can really capture a whole lot of dependencies in that data and neural networks are the main way to do that. People have invested a lot in making them scale and run them much bigger. And some of these models that you're reading about are seen about like my class $10 million worth of compute just like a train that model. And so there's number things going on. We're getting better at training them. We're getting better at expressing the problem in a way that we can make progress on and it makes sense. But then also training them at scale, and then also Nvidia and so on are continuing to improve performance. So like a lot of technological revolutions, it's like it's a confluence of a whole lot of different trends. To transition into the product aspects, is there

"Is definitely innovation in that space to Tesla comes to mind, for example. But if you were taking on something that has significant infrastructural costs, you obviously need to start big. There's no version. There's no reversion of a road infrastructure. It doesn't mean building loads of roads. And so if you're like Apple, apparently you're building a car, designing a building car. It's not the kind of shape of the wheel. So there is a start big. And then depending on how much innovation it matters, you can think small. It's so like the latter. So it's like tink big and it starts small. That's small as a proportionate to that big. So it might be feasible to say think small, start big, which is actually saying is find a small next step, ship all of us, and you're done. Well, we're saying envision the whole system. Find the first valuable piece shipped out. But you definitely have one eye on the rest. Yeah. Yeah, it's like the smallest coherent sedation. Actually, let me do this in practices. We build a little table and the table has in it. All the kind of components of the solution. And then it has effectively two columns. So three columns, essentials, then differentiators, and then not now. And this idea of not now is really powerful because saying no is really critical to any kind of product strategy in product execution. And so if you have a column that says no, that's really hard for people to actually be comfortable with. Not now. Oh, yeah. No, okay. Later, maybe. And the thing I care about most is on the note and I was on the notice. I don't have a no list. So it's essential to kind of almost start by putting every single thing into the not now. Every single part of the audiobook. And then painfully dry them over. And that's another kind of key component of this principle, think big start, small, is it should be excruciatingly painful to pull things into essentials or then differentiators, which is then about the thing we go and build. And I think to try this back to the whereas a valuable, the biggest value you get as an organization, but having stated principles. And for us that means that they're printed on the walls, they're referred to in every sort of document defining a product scope. Is predictability. It's predictability of the leadership team. It's predictably a view of me. Great leadership hinges on some sense of predictability, which is like, if you're consistent in how you apply your logic, it makes it so much easier to work alongside you, because you know, if you walk into a product, people can probably guess what the first words out of your mouth will be. That was Dez trainer and Paul Adams. You can catch them on their very own podcast intercom on product.

"Going back to the Dropbox example, where you look at slack, you look at a bunch of these, you know, the thing that's really nice is that you have a natural network formation that sort of happens. And then every user has the opportunity to then acquire one of their coworkers, and you can analyze it even more. The products that, for example, are like DocuSign, where folks that are collaborating within a workflow, you involve people from across companies. That's going to be naturally even more viral than something that just exists within a company. How many folks have discovered intercom because they see the little thing on the bottom right and have a conversation with someone and they happen to have a business that encounters a lot of this stuff. Exactly. And they're like, oh, I want that too, right? And so you get all this free, really interesting acquisition that comes from that. I think when I look at some of the high profile cases, that didn't work, there's a couple things that I think work in concert to make them more difficult. The first is you have an acquisition model that is kind of a single channel, right? Maybe that's Facebook ads, maybe that's the Google ads, maybe it's SEO, maybe it's one of these things. But you especially don't have any natural virality, natural kind of network, kind of thing in there. So I think that's one thing. The second is that, especially when we're talking about keep beating up on ecommerce, I think one of the things that ecommerce is that oftentimes if you're buying something like a mattress or you're buying something that's like a car, this is something that only happens. If it's a one decade purchase, exactly. And so because of that, you end up in this whole acquisition treadmill where you got to run really, really, really fast. While this whole thing is going, and then by the way, if you're on a single point of failure on your acquisition channel, then a lot of times these acquisition channels are a little bit like this arbitrage that kind of exists for a period of time. And if you hit it at exactly the right period of time, you can build a pretty decent company, but then eventually you should just plan on losing it. This whole thing is also another reason why a lot of games companies are hard to fund from a venture perspective because there's built in natural churn, right? Dating apps are also like this built in natural turn. If you do. Then you don't like your user. Exactly. That's right. So you have that combined with, again, this desire that you have to actually buy the traffic because it's very hard in a dating app to be like, oh, you should download this too, like that kind of doesn't make sense. So I think this is the kind of thing to watch out for, especially if you're building something that is in FinTech, in particular, like personal finance, right? Things like healthcare, right? These are all things that you have to be very careful about and make sure that you understand how those dynamics are going to play out long term. Andrew Chan there. Andrew has been on the show twice, so you can continue listening to that conversation or a more recent chat he had with Dez trainer last year. Both episodes are linked in the show notes. So now we come to our final part of today's special 3 million downloads episode. We end with the voice the show started with all those years ago, intercom cofounder Dez trainer. He was joined now by chief product officer, Paul Adams, to talk about our product principles. We use product principles a lot in intercom to guide us in terms of how we build what we build and how we make decisions. And this conversation really struck a chord with listeners. Here's Dez. Paul, let's start at the top. What the hell do we mean when we say principal? Yep, that's a good place to start. So a principle is a fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for behavior that gets you the results you want. That's red straight out of websites I guess. Can you give me some to the dictionary definition? Give me a bit more grounded there. So what that means is it's about predictable behavior and future basically. So we're big into principles as you know. And the reason we got big and principles is because they're a way of encoding your mistakes and successes. Right. So any business anywhere obviously wants to repeat their successes and avoid repeating their mistakes, which is easy to say and hard to do. But how to do institutionally and organizationally for sure. So principles is our way or the best way we've found in which to hold file the mistakes. Codifying what's next sounds like we're going to guarantee that we locked him in. Can you explain a bit on so let's say we found, hey, tree project all went off course because of blah. Do we then is there a principle to be found enough or is it like, hey, if this is a consistent pattern that we need to make sure no one ever repeats would have a principle about the positive behavior that we want. Is that what you mean? Basically, there's lots of maybe it's useful to actually share some examples of talking about this in the abstract, but it's basically about having a predictable system. Obviously our goal, like any product team, any product engineering team is ship great software that customers love, value use,

"Could be headed for a second. Lockdown induced recession live from london. This is the marketplace morning report from the bbc world service. I'm victoria craig. Good morning in about ten minutes. The australian state of victoria will enter. Its sixth cove in nineteen lockdown affecting more than six million people. The lockdown will last for about a week in an area that's experienced the nation's most severe corona virus outbreak though just eight new cases were identified vaccination rates in australia are among the lowest in the developed world and concerns about the delta variant arising. The bbc's phil mercer explains that as efforts to vaccinate the population continue officials are now bracing for the economic impact of restrictions on its biggest cities little stralia when three decades without a recession. It's now looking quite likely according to forecasters that it could have two recessions in just over a year. The forecast is for this. September quarter for the australian economy be extremely grim and said which is one of australia's main banks it's forecasting. The economy will shrink in this quarter by one point three percent the commonwealth bank is even more gloomy. It's forecasting a fall of two point seven percent and what that of course translates into some businesses collapsing. Jobs lost and incomes lost as well has the government talked about any potential support measures that it will introduce to try and stave off some of this economic impact from these lockdowns. We've already seen some input. From the new south wales government. For example here in sydney and state authorities are offering some financial assistance to businesses but with lockdowns in other parts of the country. There will be very loud calls for the federal government to step in with the sort of mammoth financial. Assistance brought in last year. That did protect many hundreds of thousands of jobs and these lockdowns come as australia faces growing numbers of cases obviously although the country has avoided the kinds of huge case numbers and death tolls that we've seen in other countries though just twenty percent of the population is fully vaccinated. Is the government working to secure more doses in what has happened to put the country so far behind other nations briefly. I think those lot of complacency. This was a country that had comparatively low rates of corona virus infections and low rates of fatalities. The government earlier. This year was saying that there was no great rush to get everybody vaccinated. There's been a problem with supply there has been vaccine hesitancy to but it does seem that the road back to freedom freedom for people to go out and spend money to travel to reinvigorate.

Mr racy promised to improve living conditions and restore what he called tarnished public trust. He has an enormous challenge on his hands. Iran has been rocked by yet another way of street protests triggered in part by severe water shortages. This rice has promised to get crippling international sanctions. Lifted but knows. This can't happen without some kind of modified nuclear agreement like the one reached in two thousand fifteen negotiations in vienna about. This have been on hold for the past six weeks.

The commission says A PD will be short 156 officers by the end of this month on top of the 150 positions cut last year by the City Council. And millions of dollars likely will be earmarked in Austin's new budget for resiliency plan. City manager Spencer Kronk says The proposal includes four high priority projects.

I heard two Big Arjun there restful and relaxing yet today I know that doesn't happen much, but I would definitely encourage you to try it if you have it in a while. How were the flights? You've been flying the entire time off and on during the pandemic. How do you compare what you saw out there? Now? What? Some of the earlier periods in all of this, Uh, compared to the earlier periods it I mean, it's back to normal, but we've been slowly moving to that. So I wouldn't say it was a huge increase over the last time I flew, but it definitely is every seat taken. Um And it's It's interesting at the different airports that you go to because in California, the San Diego airport they still have and it just makes me laugh they still have at the airport. This seat reserved no one Sit here and then you can sit in the next one. But yet you're getting on a plane where you're sitting side by side by people, But at the airport, you can sit side by side so they still have some things to work out. But I saw The least amount of mask in California than I have seen this whole entire time. Now. Had they been big mask wearers prior to this trip. Oh, yeah, even when you were outdoors, and you know all by yourself, and you saw someone, maybe walking or jogging, Um, they would have mask on And it was less this time. There weren't um, a lot of signs on the doors about mask, which I was surprised by. I figured they would be the ones that still had the sign seen. If you're not vaccinated, you need to wear this and I saw a few of those. But for the most part, there wasn't much wording or wearing of masks. Which was surprising to me in California, so, but I was in San Diego was in the Southern part. I wasn't in l A. Well, it sounds like good news to me.

Gun crime is he likes to call it. He's invited the Democratic nominee for mayor of New York City and others to come in and talk about this issue, Axios Has obtained some of the memos that the White House team is sending out about the rising tide of violent crime in America. And it says that Democrats, including the president, are very concerned. All of this violence could affect Biden's presidency and the political fortunes of Democrats in the midterms. Yeah, um, you've seen. I mean, you just turn on the news. And any time you turn on the news, you're hearing about the horrible weekend that Chicago had her New York had. I even I stepped away from the news a bit this past week. But the time that I caught I heard about shootings here in Austin, so it doesn't matter where you are. You're seeing that uptick in the crime and I don't They're going to have to do more than just come around, come together and say We've got to do something to come to combat guns and guns alone because that's not The huge thing when it comes to the crime up tickets again what we talk about all the time. It's not the guns fault. It is the people behind the guns that people pulling the triggers. It's the judges prosecutors. It's so much more than the gun. It's not surprising that this memo at the White House says they're worried about their own political backsides rather than all of the American citizens that are losing their lives being hurt, being injured. Devastated. Yeah, the top priority is, Oh, we better put together a meeting and get media coverage and make people think we're doing something about it. And they say the president is giving cities the latitude to use some of the covid relief money to hire more police. Melinda and I talked about that back in June when he made that announcement and several big cities say they're doing so we haven't heard anything from Austin along those lines..

The report, combining data from dozens of agencies shows the damage climate change is already caused and says Americans are feeling its impact with greater frequency..

Iran rejects Trump's claim U.S. destroyed an Iranian drone

"The government in Tehran has denied the white house's claim that the US downed an Iranian drone aircraft president trump said a US naval vessel brought down the drone because it threatened to ship in the strait of full movies between Iran and the United Arab Emirates pull Adams is on diplomatic correspondent he's with me in the studio Paul what do we know about the Iranian drone the US says it brought down I think the first thing to point out is that you don't forget what the White House says forget what the Iranians a site there was a report on board from the Wall Street journal and we have quite a detailed account of what happened so essentially what happened was that at the USS boxer an amphibious ship was it was accompanying a number of other US vessels through the straits of whole moves a routine deployment but at that point typically the Iranians tend to come and have a pretty close look they send boats nearby to sort of harassing keep an eye on on the traffic what we're told from the reporter for the Wall Street journal is that at one point a helicopter on man's Iranian helicopter flew litri yards from the deck of the USS boxer that was warned off there was a an Iranian vessel nearby either came within five hundred yards of the of the boxer that was also warned off but then you helicopters on board the vessel when top and they spotted this drug and that that drone was then brought down not by being shot down but they are through the use of some kind of electronic jamming I suspect it wasn't a very sophisticated driving and it was very easy for the Americans to intercept it and that's what they did what's interesting about that is that this is a piece of equipment that the Americans have just brought in on the USS boxer I suspect precisely to interfere with Iranian drone operations of the Gulf the Rainey's use them a lot for surveillance to coordinate their activities of the Gulf nifty Americans now have a piece of equipment on board that can enter intercept and bring those down that's going to be possibly a bit of a game changer analyst comes after U. S. drone presumably more expensive more sophisticated than the one you just talked about just a bit was shot down by Iran yes so I think what's interesting about both of these is in if you want to see the the upside is that at a time of heightened tension at a time of extremely inflammatory rhetoric with the two sides locked in this bitter dispute over the future of the Iran nuclear deal at a time when they could have lashed out each side has chosen to hit on on manta drug yesterday the USS boxer was surrounded by Iranian foss boats a larger warship nearby this helicopter that flew close by at but he chose to hit anon man Dr and I think that tells you that the two sides have not yet reached the point where either of them is prepared to take that step not really in a potentially catastrophic step off of firing on a some kind of manned aircraft or will ship despite all talk more less weekly of heightened tension how militarized is this straight to full movies this crucial narrow stretch of water getting a day it is becoming moment tries the Americans have been sending more equipment and men into the region the British of it increase that that may be present a tiny bit in the area India has sent a couple of warships there is a an American effort underway to try and organize some kind of new operation that would escort shipping in and out of the Gulf the impression is that the Americans having a slightly hard time mustering allies for this operation because no one Frank you want to be associated with Donald trump's hardline policy towards Iran Paul Adams many thanks well within concentrating a lot on incidents between the US and Iran in the straits of full movies what about the impact that the increased tension between the US and Iran is having any rack Michael nights is a senior fellow at the Washington institute for Near East policy who travels regularly to Iraq and joins me now live welcome Mr nights that's been a spate of attacks has known U. S. related targets in Iraq over the past couple of months maybe you could run us through what's been going on absolutely there's now been ten rocket attacks on US facilities this year a plus the number lost year with about twenty so rocket munitions followed at a US military training sought some US embassy in Baghdad we'll have drugs the violence of the US embassy we also I just lost not seem to have had some gonna mystery drawn attacking Iraq on an Iranian facility in northern Iraq and nobody knows if that's the US is rightly or some other calling dole's attack so there's a tremendous amount of this you know what she will say going on between the US and Iran and there's also quite a lot of drug related activities you said we will send the right knee and produce strong boats which was killed I think by U. K. naval forces with electronic more say in the Red Sea a few days ago we've had the US and Saudis working together to kill one drones coming from Yemen into Saudi rice kill you mean without loss of life but bring down right yeah correct blood deactivate using electronic Wilson means okay the malicious behind the attacks inside Iraq on sheer militias known as the popular mobilization forces to what degree of a controlled by Iran so small subset old the popular mobilization forces which is like a reserve all me all being controlled by the Iranians these all forces like a toddler and a sizeable hack who'd been working with the Iranians for many types use over twenty years so you could say perhaps twenty percent of the popular mobilization forces have a very taut come on control relationship with the Iranian intelligence services I can fire rockets at U. S. facilities you know with the writing in orders and support the US is getting increasingly controlled by this isn't it to Mike Pompeii owed the secretary of state made a surprise visit to Baghdad Justin may yeah that's correct and what compiles message when he went was very clear that if any US persons were killed or wounded that retaliation with full directly on it wrong and indeed only right knee and militias in Iraq and as a result you know we seem to sing this on my end warfare that you've been talking about web ball idea right now actually killing Americans but they all knocking American drugs out of the air and they also the intimidation rocket attacks that are in the sense to me Iraqis must be concerned that that country could be the scenario for the US and Iran to to have the kind of conflict many think that heading full yeah and that you know we've always been on the spectrum of conflict between the US and Iran within Iraq you know just nearly six hundred Americans were killed by writing weapons into rock up till two thousand eleven so you you know what we're seeing right now is us that is that proxy warfare accelerating and intensifying again but at the moment it's at the non lethal level no Americans of being kidnapped killed or wounded and you know we hope it stays there Michael nights in Washington many
