You wanted to develop his development skills so he began to make websites for himself his friends family members and local churches all for free at that point he says that money was not a motivating factor for him instead. Every new project helped him learn something new. And that was valuable. Sony began to expand out from just building web sites. He learned to make simple web applications. John create these products for one reason to help solve a problem. He was facing himself after he would solve the problem. He publishes work to the chrome app store. Figured if he had a problem that people might have it too and it would help them again. He was doing this for free no charge. John spent much of his free time working on these projects. Never earning a dime from them but again he was learning he identified two very important things he was learning. One was the portfolio of technical skills that still to this day. The other was the notion of what he calls. Putting in the work. Essentially john got used to grinding. He would wake up at five in the morning to work on side on days off drive a few hours to attend community development meet ups to connect with others in his field. One time even left a few hours late for a vacation to finish update after building both his skills and his mindset. John began to venture into paid work. That's right there is a satisfied connection. Every store we have here is all about paid work. John had plenty of pro bono. Work to showcase which helped him land his very first client. Someone had heard about him and told her husband who was looking to hire someone to a site for his small business. John was ecstatic for the first time. He realized that making extra money on the side is possible now while he was getting paid now he still did not value profit the most in terms of his business above all else he wanted clients to want to pay him because he was adding so much guy to their goals. So in the first year. John made a grand total of one thousand two hundred and forty dollars. He found most of his other clients just like he found the first word of mouth. He was constantly telling people in this community about his. After hours work for the next few years he slowly began to increase profits. More people found out about him which caused him to get more referrals. Also purchase google edwards and renamed his business apps by john twenty fifteen. John was making about five thousand dollars a year from his hustle. Then tekere emailed him hoping to recruit him for a project. Ironically they reached out to him because john published one of his failed projects online for all the world to see. This failed app. Used a specific kind of technology called cordova apps although it was his least successful app by continuing to publish work that he knew as imperfect he made this new connection john agreed to work with tech recruiter and successfully help the company. Deliver a mobile app for the client. The company was happy with his work and his work ethic and has kept him on as sub-contractor ever since now this was great for john in more ways than one his profits increased substantially and. Now here's about forty thousand dollars a year just from his side hustle by working with the larger team. He's been able to work with more. Prestigious clients have been able to impact more people. Not only that but working with the larger business has helped polish skills even further now. John doesn't have to find as many personal client. Projects still does every now and then when the work it is consulting contract fluctuates. He says there were many things he did right so he could be ready for this opportunity. This includes not giving up even when the hustle got tough showcasing. His failed app not being afraid to do that and having confidence in his abilities which grew over time at this point john has no idea. What's next enjoys both this side hustle. Ns fulltime job as a transportation engineer. An extra forty thousand dollars. A year on the side isn't bad either.

Providence received approximately $509 million in grants
"Let's talk about hospitals here for a second week we just spend some time with Jim Brunner talking about the the unemployment stamp that has been devastating people in the hundreds of millions of dollars out of the pockets of of folks who desperately need it here in Washington and it I can't help but draw a comparison to what some hospitals are doing in the area and I'm not talking about the the smaller places that have very thin operating budgets that basically the the the money that they bring in can can pay for payroll for the next week or two I'm talking about the big big places one of them being Providence health system it's one of the the largest and richest hospital chains here in the United States now they they've got this spring this is according to New York times they got at least five hundred nine million dollars in government funds smaller pore hospitals are receiving a pittance compared to that in Providence is sitting on about twelve billion dollars in cash which it invests it's got like stock portfolios there's no discernible difference at least to me between what happens on Wall Street and what this supposedly not for profit hospital system is doing yeah I mean this is been the problem with the not for profit hospital system is been in did these complaints are not limited to this I think it was a Providence hospital in a in the one in Everett I think that that fire to the emergency room doctor low right was complaining that they were not following safety procedures with with with new brand new with this the very front end of the the pandemic a brand new coronavirus patients they're testing people in the parking lot or something along those lines yeah it in so you have these not for profit in the whole way you get not for profit status if you are a hoot if your hotel the hospital chain is you traded that to that means you get a tax break a significant one you trade that to the government by providing charity services in other words you do pro bono work on people in the community it's always many of these hospitals fall way short you have the very creative accounting on what actually was charity work or they just don't do it at all with no real teeth behind it and to see a company sitting on billions of dollars collect billions of dollars right in aid is a little bit along the same lines as what we saw with that with the but the bond houses and with the investment firms and with the banks back in the in the in the mortgage crisis collecting people who had caused the problem then collecting on the problem yeah it would seem to a lot of people to be pretty deeply offensive although we didn't care to have the political courage to actually change it in a manner that would help us this is another situation where these for profit or rather non not for profit which is not non profit not for profit hospital right there have a medially put their strong the drink as soon as the government said you know we have eight to provide they lined up even with sitting on significant assets now they'll okay they'll tell you that you know this this money was available we had to get even the people doling out the the relief money that they'll tell you we will priority was getting it out right we didn't want to sit on it and come up with systems and develop a system to take the time to double and triple check things because this was an emergency and people needed that money but I would I would argue that will take your check K. can you look at the balance of the place and know that if somebody is is sitting on you know ten billion dollars whatever it may be that that that supposedly is for emergencies right that's an emergency fund that's that's and that's the savings account that you go into when you need to tap it because something catastrophic has happened yeah what else is out for it was not you would be very very difficult to say this was an oversight I think that the one of the problems that happened with the relief is that it really wasn't earmarked toward small businesses everyone claimed it was it was earmarked toward business and the big businesses were much I mean when you have a team of people including attorneys and accountants that can get your paperwork in very quickly and when you have a lobbyist who actually has the the the call list of local lawmakers run you have those things you're going to get to the front of the line and this is what happened with with companies like Providence another company that we saw from the the paycheck protection program relief aid who lined up immediately to get their snouts in the trough again and then take the bulk of what was supposed to be for companies that were on the brink and it's a shame because I don't actually mind so much on the paycheck protection and if these are if it's actually helping people who are minimum wage people as it was with as much of it was designed to do I think that's great if it's helping people to hire in the scale I hope there is a cut off point for it and I appreciate that as well I don't know that I am worried about as much about somebody making three hundred K. a year when the patient protection thing rolled out and in the end the judge the law didn't worry about the mother which was which was terrific about it but this particular one in Providence and other hospital chains that are the the not for profit hospital chains it it wouldn't bother me if they were at
Explaining the Michael Flynn controversy
"City every thing that we have been saying we're now going on three plus years is now true there is a miscarriage of justice they set up general Flynn we now have hand written notes to prove it where do we stand and your thoughts what we have even more evidence now Sean than we had yesterday we did a new filing at about one o'clock this afternoon with a report from the FBI that completely exonerated planets of January fourth of any sort of Russia problem and repeats in multiple ways that they had checked all the government files on him the FBI files the DA files probably ASCII files all those those two were redacted and found no derogatory information on him whatsoever so then we learned a task a confidential informant against them from the other information I have another that staff and helpers and he's a total slimeball but was running an operation against when I'm probably through the office of net assessment James Baker colonel James Baker in the department of defense with his handler and we think banker that they could not be at the operator but the defense department Baker is the one who had the connection that allowed him to get the transcript of the Kinsley act calls that he then probably leaked to his friend David Ignatius there been recent disclosures of how cozy their relationship was which was inappropriate for more reasons than one and we've just got more and more evidence of the strong page text messages hell struck at the instructions of seven four went back in which means the upper echelon of the FBI Comey and McCabe went back in and kept the following general Flynn from being closed he references their own incompetence and realizing that the file has been closed even though it was supposed to be on so they started all over again and start making up the attempt for the Logan act delegations and set up the interview now as I read these hand written notes and and new information that has come out potential questions for DD's call explain what that is this is from struck that son an email from strong before McCabe is going to place the call to swing on the day of the interview that Comey was talking and bragging about his little speech on national January twenty fourth four days into the trump administration and McCabe now general Flynn it's been widely reported ask or do I need a lawyer anything in Andrew McCabe lied to him did he not and deny him his Miranda rights well actually technically Maranda doesn't apply in the non custodial setting but what they always do is at least mention of one thousand one possibility the false statement possibility and what that means that they have plans and schemes by other information we have not even do that with general Flynn there emails yesterday produced that recommended that they do that and note that they always do that at least mention it in an interview and they decided here because it was planned not to mention it at all they schemes and plans and met at length about it to decide to keep him relaxed and unguarded and then I would not have their and what wouldn't a White House council of as well what is the nature of this then again improper process was and protocol what is the nature of the discussion with general Flynn and if they had the Telemus about an investigation into planned and Russia well that point the White House counsel would say will red flags general Flynn they probably would have told you probably need a lawyer that would have happened now in that and then these other you know hand written notes what is our goal now why would any FBI agent ever have to ask the question because the goal should be truth the goal should be justice they say then it goes on truth admission R. or to get him to lie get him we're trying to get him to do something or and then it's so so we can then prosecute him or get him fired well that sounds like a perjury trap but I'm not the smart lawyer that you are Sydney about one that was obviously written obviously their goal and that's even more apparent in the text messages of Strzok and page and others that came out in the production today where they also talk about using a defensive briefing as a pretext to talk to him they're trying to figure out a way to talk to him in such a way that he doesn't know he's being interviewed so they could try to trap him or make something up against him and they wound up having to just make it up and we learn more in today's production also about how Mr Strzok did massive added to the original agents three oh two and was trying very hard to keep that other agents employees in the report despite his significant changes to it and was talking to Lisa page about that she was fussing with him that helps lobbyists work was on it all right I'm I want to get John Solomon here in here in a second but Sydney what we now knows that this was a set up that they knew ahead of time that they had put this case to rest they resurrected it for political purposes we know even earlier and and the attorney general's confirm this that in fact when we've confirmed it that it was premeditated fraud on the FISA court because they will warn John Solomon will address this in a minute and that is they will warn that the dirty dossier that Hillary paid for should not be trusted it was political in nature it's unverified and my and that Christopher Steele has an agenda numerous times but they took the unverified later we find out unverifiable odd dirty Russian dossier that even apparently the Russians knew was going to Hillary Clinton which brings up a whole new story likely Russian disinformation even The New York toilet paper times got that was used as the foundation for all four FISA warrants totally debunked at this point they never even tried to verify it and then they took away Carter page's civil liberties and constitutional rights they spied on a candidate a transition team and deep into the presidency of Donald Trump those last words are Attorney General bars are and then we have other issues involving helper and Joseph miss foot in Brandon and and clapper which I assume at some point will be addressed to hear Sydney but here's what happened they denied that we now know that general Flynn is even a bigger hero don't week that what we have been saying on this program and thank god for you because you've got the crap beat out of you all a lot you work your your you know what off offered no money for the most part pro bono and donations from generous people thank god because this guy went bankrupt and he fell on the sword to save his son is not true Sidney Powell yes yes the generosity of the American people has kept our litigation going in his defense and we've learned that there was a secret side deal of course but generally they have promised not to indict his son but the judge didn't know it and we found documentary evidence only recently that Covington and Burling as per our lawyers and the prosecutor Mr van crack it made this a secret side deal deliberately to avoid that Mr Bannon cracks obligation to produce that exculpatory or impeachment information to any future defendant that they wanted general Flynn to testify against so it was another example of them cracked deliberately trying to hide the ball of exculpatory evidence and believe that the same time we on at the same time the judge did not note that the plea was coerced at and the plea was course because they said well we didn't think ally but you're going to admit to lying rose we're going after your son which that is prosecutorial abuse to I don't want to keep John Solomon out of this discussion John you've brought amazing work here and you have a lot of updates we have to listen today's documents that should be forced into the public I think really bring to light the deliberate nature of what was going on here the normal process for the F. B. I. was taking its course they looked at general plan they decided he wasn't a Russian asset he posed no threat he should be okay to be the national security adviser and then this is a more right from their notes the seventh floor of the FBI got involved the seven floors James Comey and Andrew McCabe and they stop the closure of the files the they were gonna treats when the right way and just give me a defensive briefing I move on and they put a stop to it and then they can talk this interview and you

Click Silver Ball. Never show up so jin gets involved. She tries to call the company but she can't get anybody on the phone. She's getting the runaround on e mail. Eventually John and Jen do get their money back from pay pal and then Jen decides to leave an online review at a site called ripoff report. Just to warn other people about clear my husband ordered items from clear your dot com for Christmas presents. After several weeks went by with no delivery he attempted to contact 'em pastes in this sort of absurd email exchange had with the company into the review. Then she hits publish it goes up online and that's the end of it. Our response was okay. We've we've put our experience out there for the world to see we're good we're done. We went on with our lives. We want a house to house.

The fine print that we all agree to all the time whenever we do anything online specifically it saying there was a clause in the terms that said you cannot leave a nasty review about US online but remember. It's been three years since they posted that review. They don't remember seeing any non-disparagement clause when they bought the Chomsky's so the US this Internet archive site to look at the old terms and conditions from three years earlier and that clause was not there when they tried to buy those Chomsky's but there is still that email from clear gear threatening to find John. Three thousand five hundred dollars. Which of course is a scary warning so John and Jen? Sorta calling lawyers and all the lawyers said basically the same thing. Oh sure you give us a five thousand dollar retainer and we'll see what we can do and I'm like dude if I don't have thirty five hundred dollars to give them. I don't five grand to give you the couldn't pay any of these lawyers so they just went on with their lives. A while later they went to buy a car and we were sitting in the in the dealership and finance manager comes over to US and Kinda loudly says okay. Well we're trying to find you financing but who is clear gear? And why do you owe them thirty five hundred dollars and both of us just face palm? Yeah because of this whole thing with clear gear. John now had this like black mark on his credit report. We fast forward to October of that next year. Our hot water heater died on us. We use our savings to get that repaired. Three days later our furnace goes out. It's going to cost them thousands of dollars to get a new furnace and they just don't have it on hint. We tried get emergency financing every company. I tried to go through turned us down so finally I am at my wit's end it's October in Utah. My House has no furnace. I have a three year old and thinking to myself. Oh my God we're going to end up with a frozen house and CPS is GonNa come and take my child away. Because I can't keep the heat on because of this stupid mark on John Credit and there's nothing we can do so finally I mean I I am almost crying. I'm a I'm at work and have no idea what to do. Their case was too small for the FBI too strange for the local police but luckily there's a certain kind of person who is perfect for helping people just like Gen. My boss comes up to me and says well why don't you give KTV's Matt Gephardt a call. There's one in Utah. Who Arms You with the information? You need to protect yourself. Get help get inches. Get Gephardt five nights a week on two news at ten so I called up get Gephardt and I left them of really long message and explained to them the entire story and the more. I'm speaking the the more I'm just realizing how utterly ridiculous all of this sounds. I mean you cannot make this up. You're leaving a voice mail. Yeah I think I had caught them like off hours or something I think it was the next day I get a call from from Matt. Gephardt of Gephardt. Yes he calls me back and says I believe you and I WANNA help. And all of a sudden I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. It you get horrible. Customer Service MMA company. You will likely tell people about that. I get this company is ordering Elaine coupled obey thousands all because they don't like the review they posted up here on a Tuesday three days later the story has gone viral and by viral. I mean England and France and Australia and China and Canada and in the middle of all this John and Jen get a call from a lawyer named Scott Michelman at a nonprofit called public citizen. He said he wanted to take their case and agreed to do it. Pro Bono. The lawyer Got John's credit report fixed. And he sued clear gear in federal court. We show up to court. And he's got his fancy lawyer formulas that they do to to calculate things like real damages versus pain and suffering and all of that basically how much is he gonNA ask for three hundred seven thousand dollars so we got to court and of course clear doesn't show up and so it's just you guys in the judge hanging out pretty much it's I mean the judge still sat and heard our story. We still gave our testimony laid out. You know all the damages and as the judges hearing all of this he decides. He's like you know what I've heard enough. I don't need to take under advisement. I'm GonNa give you everything you're asking for. And the lawyer's fees on top of it and I remember sitting at the table and kind of like whispering. Did he do what I think he just did? The lawyers just shut up. Shut up shut up and you know. And he went ahead and gave us the judgment right then and there But even with this huge number that neither of US could of ever dreamed of. We knew we were never going to see a dime of it. You couldn't even get him on the phone. How you'RE GONNA get three hundred seven thousand dollars plus lawyer that exact ex exactly but this was a significant enough number to at least deter anybody else from attempting the same thing on somebody
The Bible That Leaks Oil
"Well Dan yes does. Have you ever heard of the Oil Bible Lael by Dan Oil? It feels like I should have. Oh goodness gracious Dan. Can we say with the Texas all the whole Jerry Pierce and John Taylor has been traveling? The Nation Dan with the Oil Bible. Okay now let me tell you this Bible when it sort of magically secretes oil. Oh my God right like Ooh from it is clear this oil just flows so gross and they whenever there so apparently part of the the the trick here is the it doesn't actually seep oil when they're traveling only seeps oil at home but people visit them at home in order to encounter the Seeping Oil Bible and They yeah people have attributed healings of course An any pretty much anything you could imagine has been attributed to The Bible It's performing. Miracles is what it is performing miracles. They give away vials of the oil and they've they're growing famous and making a lot of money off the Oil Bible. Well the good folk good folk at let me see. What is this news organization? That's the little local their local news or the Chattanooga Times free press okay because in I. I assume somewhere there in Tennessee in Dalton. If that's a place in Tennessee the town is called Dalton. Okay then the times free press decided they were going to do some investigative reporting. Oh okay so. As any good organization news organization would do so. They started asking around and they got a source at the Dalton. Tractor supply which says that Pierce Right Would consistently go in and and by gallons of mineral okay And but but company policies prevented prohibited him from telling anything more specific than that. But that's pretty. That's pretty damning right there. Yeah so the Times. Free press paid for a series of chemical analyses of the oil that they were giving out the oil that was available at the Dalton. Tractor supply okay. Sure and they sent these analysis or these tests to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Okay that compared the samples and they said that it was the same thing. Oh shocking oil. Petroleum derived and the results quote strongly suggests that oil sample is mineral oil. Just like the stuff for sale. Right okay And then the second test that compared the chemical composition of Pierce's oil to the product tractor supply found a nearly exact match. They're doing mass spectrometry. Is that what they're doing it? The article doesn't get into such thing and using a gas chromatograph. What are they doing? Frank I don't know all right fine. There Ministry though began in two thousand sixteen in the week after Donald TRUMP'S INAUGURATION. And these these two guys So that they had a powerful religious experience As oil began coming out of the Bible. Now these guys are just clearly. Just fucking liars. It's obvious just charlatan right right. They're just soaking a Bible. They dropped a Bible into a VAT of oil one time and then just made a claim about it and then to realize we'll fuck all just just keep doing this and their followers. The people who've been healed people who've had deep religious experiences Are predictably sticking to their guns drinking with them. Yeah even though clearly. It's a fraud. It's a complete and utter fraught. So the the Oil Bible. Let me tell you something. Bats heads new. Here's the thing about human psychology for most humans. It is more tolerable to to believe some to to deal with the cognitive dissonance of believing something you know has been proven true then to change your mind. It's too painful for most people to change their mind and so they would rather deal with being idiots essentially believing something that has been proven false. Yeah well it's you know it's just it's the it's the media. Yeah it's it's Tanic right the devils newspaper Chattanooga Times free press you know yeah. I'm sure that that's satanist. The Lucien Greaves Editor in chief. The Times free press is it good on this local news. I know a great right again. Well done guys. How do they even have any money to do any testing? Probably all pro bono right probably including the reporting. Yes indeed okay. There's there's no money for independent newspapers anymore. That's what we're getting. That's the
"Today we're talking with the one and only Grace Cordova. No grace helps people. When they are in the most need to navigate the healthcare system her compassion and her empathy sharing through in all of her work? We learned a lot in this conversation. And Hope you will too. So let's get started. I'm great. I'm a board. Certified patient advocate specializing in the oncology space. And one of the main questions that I get is is what on. Earth is a patient advocate. And what is a board certified patient advocate and essentially what that is as I do my advocacy work as a profession. I'm hired by patients to help them navigate their diagnosis and connect them with the information and the tools that they need to meet their healthcare goals wherever they may be and I also do a lot of pro bono work because not everyone can of course afford a patient out of the kids I I have been fortunate to build a wonderful network of resources. I've been doing this personally and professionally for over twenty years and I right. Listen to People's challenges and try to at least point them in the right direction and sometimes that'll that's all it takes is pointing someone to where we need to go and what they need to do in the space of cancer as well as many other chronic illnesses rare diseases or what I call life altering diagnoses. Big Nose is one of the most common questions that people have when they get their diagnosis is what do I do now. Or what do I do next. And that's that's really what my piece of the puzzle is being what I call a healthcare navigating solution s and really being a bridge builder for people when they feel like they're so alone and have no one to turn to so great. Can you give us an example of maybe a patient. You've helped him pass or recently and maybe provide just addition because you called out you know patient specific goals and sometimes when people have a life altering diagnosis especially especially cancer depending on the stage or the type and what's available. I might imagine you help people navigate. You know really wanting to go very ahead on into this looking for experimental treatment. Maybe they're in the prime of their life looking to do anything they can to get better and then you may also meet people that are near to the end. Good life and majors valley quality still need some care efforts in patient navigation. Their goals might be quite different as they are in a different place in their life for or whatever reason can you give us some example. Sure absolutely so. I want to point out that the people that I work with are from point a diagnosis the survivors ship or end of life. Care Planning so I really been humbled to see such a broad spectrum of goals and it it really is personalized medicine. What we're talking about really delivering solutions and of one because no two people are alike Medicine does a great job of managing clinical issues in cancer. But we do an awful job in managing life with a diagnosis. Uh and I try to understand and ask each patient and their loved one. I'm a firm believer in the care partners playing a big role in this healthcare trajectory. Would it be school. Look like some people are laser focused. Connect me with the second and third opinion with experts in my disease with the hospitals. That have the best technologies technology's connect me with the best clinical trials. What are the cutting edge genetic test or up and coming screening opportunities? That may be out. Yeah what should I be considering so that I know what to expect three months six months down the line some people say I wanna do everything thing from a life I could have. My goals are attending my daughter's wedding attending my granddaughter's recital title travelling to a particular location with might family finishing my piano lessons and my recital recital. These are all extremely important pieces of the puzzle that I work on because it helps to guide treatment planning if we only focus on the clinical. We missed out when the person walks out of the clinic or out of the doctor's office on how they're going to survive life with diagnosis. And that's where we see a big disconnect with what we call. Patient being non adherent noncompliant not taking their medication not really taking care of themselves because the treatment plan. We've come up with doesn't work with life with a diagnosis. oftentimes people with cancer diagnosed with cancer because my area of expertise go home and they still have to be apparent. They still have a job they have show up two or two jobs. They're caring for for an aging parent. They have their own career aspirations. Their own needs work. The laundry needs to be done powder. We look at all of the really of the whole person situation and try to come up with something that's called to be reasonable but dynamic as the disease and treatment Progress things change so it can't be something that's set in stone. It's got to be flexible. And that's where I tried to bring the patients and family concerns into into the healthcare medical conversation so that we can sort of meet in the middle and have a crystal clear plan that can be revised as we go along so great when you're unhealthy people outside of the clinical things and you brought something up and you said you know my goals or maybe just to attend to my granddaughter's vital. What look like for a patient? What are you doing for navigation? Perspective solution to help them achieve. What do you go back and do and and how you begin to attack those that individual such as that you know when you have something like cancer? We know that there's a lot of treatment related side effects. There's no surprises there. There are significant advancements happening where certain treatments have lesser side effects. But I liked the focus. The conversation on what life events near-term long-term are important to a patient that might mean reviewing the schedule of chemotherapy that that might mean incorporating palliatives care right off the get go that might mean more touch points with the physician and the nurses and the care team and perhaps maybe a psychiatrist a social worker spiritual advisor that might mean using technology. That chair holy is able to record. Patient reported outcomes to monitor side effects and see that. There's a turn for the worst catching early before there's an eventual admission to the ER and this takes work in partnership with collaboration from both sides from the care team as well as the patients and their loved ones at

But Nick has a very special position as the sole lawyer I am. CF is legal department. Yes yes this is at now center for inquiry. Yeah we talk about CFI every now and then on the show we all talk about the CFI the investigations group wing of that. I've been involved with for many many years and our first episode was recorded at the old. CF I- office and guess what we are now at the new CFI office which is still in La but now on Temple Street yeah come on by visit. There's going to be lectures all kinds of stuff.

And wants to come talk about. Books is trying to get people to your book. I am absolutely the more the Mary Nick. How long have you been working with just over six years? I think it was six years in September that I started. And how did they lure you in. I'd like to give this sort of great story about how you know. I was led by the heart and emotion to the nonprofit world but I'll to law school I worked for a a big law. Firm represented fortune five hundred companies and received obscene paychecks. So doing and probably would of ended up doing that for the rest of my life because the paychecks are really compelling sure I'm syncing regretted and my phone went bankrupt really ooh God which which kind of happens to law firms occasionally and just imploded and through a combination of very weird circumstances and says I was offered another couple of jobs and failed the conflict check because I've done and then I was offered a job and it turned out that it was the law firm that my brother works for in the London office. And they have anti nepotism world. But he's not your nephew. Indeed you know I got. I need a job. I saw advertised that which was an organization. Confess I had never heard of. I was looking for somebody to though I amendment law which was kind of a passion of mine and so I applied without thinking a lot about that and then the more all right look at the organization I was like this is great. And if I don't get out of the big low world now I am never going to do it right. I'm so I took the plunge and I went off from work and I always say that I much prefer my job now to my old job two days a month when eh the first one came into nightly took it back to run Lensey at the time. I think there's a misprint. No zero somewhere. Oh my goodness misplaced. We should probably describe. CFI A little more. The center for inquiry was founded in nineteen seventy six thereabouts By Paul Kurtz and other leading lights of the critical thinking skeptical humanist Atheist Movement you had Isaac Asimov Carl Sagan. I'm James Randi Lot of those types involved early on in it's kind of existed for many years in two parts. You have your council for secular humanism which is all about sort of that humanist side more the philosophy side and then what was originally the committee for skeptical inquiry of claims of the paranormal S. I I just notice I cop yes okay. Not sure I had ever known instead I I may have messed up the CSI part of it because now it's just CSI it's not to be confused with CSI Miami or the other TV shows but it's the committee for skeptical inquiry. I think the original psycho had a different acronym boot good. Yeah so you came in six years ago now. We really brushed past what sounded like a very juicy. You See story what the Hell happened with your firm and what what were your conflicts of interest. This is the real juicy stuff neck. I wish I mean I wish the the foam went bankrupt Tom if they even have. La Office okay and a fell into the problem of expanding too quickly. Okay and have have a Salt Lake City office. I think which never made any money. Okay Mormons elements and they don't do anything wrong. Yeah and what happened with me on conflicts. lex They totally bizarre was had done seven hours work on a huge class action lawsuit that was representing. I can't even remember if we were representing or defending against the dairy farmers of microbes. Like milk price fixing literally did seven billable hours on this house else. Just something I filled in when I had some slow time And we would have to have got a signature to waive the conflict from every single angled member of the plaintiff's class that was like every thousand dairy amazing. CIC probably wasn't going to happen so net could go off from what for another. Solis got it. Wow a milky or story than I thought but not that. Jessie yes. Okay so then you came here. Also Solis but in a good way. Yes yes good solace and you were drawn to the First Amendment side of things so why would cfi what. Why would they be interested in First Amendment Law? Well they advertised the position in this was I was a little concerned about it I they described himself as a secular organization tonight. The first time I read it I thought it said sectarian organizations convinced applying to sort of a Catholic human human rights so tons out so get it did was talking about work and international human rights work and charged site separation law. And if you look at law school everyone takes criminal law classes in everyone takes the constitutional law classes because that Pham on and it's Great. It provides you conversation to talk about in bars some when you walk in lower northern things and then you end up working proofreading some four hundred page contracts for an oil company. Nobody practices what they want to. And everybody goes to law school saying I'm going to be a public defender or I'm going going to be a prosecutor on the. I'm going to work for a nonprofit and no one ever done you end up doing the drywall in the the lawyer industry. Yes and you get rewarded awarded very very nicely for but every lawyer I know they live for that. Pro Bono cases. Yeah I had some great ones arm and gives you a chance to you feel I making the world a better place. Exactly one person at the time you get the cool stories out of at night so many thought. Maybe I will get to do this like all the time. We're on the five percent of the time that my law firm would allow me to work not paid.
Keith Recker on Color as Narrative
"Guest in the studio is Keith. wrecker who is the author of a new book true colors world masters of natural dyes and Pigments Heike. Hey how are you both pretty good Keith how did you get into color. I have to say it's been a long and winding road I come come from a background of poetry and literature and of course you know when you have that background you have to do something and I ended up having to separate careers. Maybe three three one and big retail as director of home furnishings at Saks fifth avenue gump San Francisco and Bloomingdales Direct Response and another career nonprofit as head of aid artisans As founder of the hand Eye Fund and hand eye magazine and currently as pro bono creative director of the international folk art market based Down Santa Fe and my third career has been in Trenton color forecasting with Panton. WGN A little bit with Stylus of really trying to inject a sense of adventure creativity relevance to their client base. Now when we did our episode where we interviewed Donna. Karen that was was She had part of the international folk art market in the urban store and and we were surrounded by products from that market But she didn't really talk about the interview. Can you tell us a little bit about the international folk art market. Yeah absolutely you were surrounded In the urban zone holiday market by I think it was twenty nine different artists from all over the world mostly textiles in that In that collection and the things ranged from the most amazing handspun Kunia hand-knit by artisans in Argentina And the group. That does these. Things is part of have a biosphere management program in the high dry plains of Argentina where Kunia are an essential part and the Kunas harvested the incan way where the village surrounds the Vicuna. So that there's no sense of panic. They slowly move in until the animals can be sheared It's a really touching story so you have. You were surrounded founded by twenty-five stories with that kind of depth and historic resonance And the folk art market is an annual event in Santa Fe. Happens every July. We bring together between one hundred sixty and one hundred eighty artists from all over the world fifty plus countries and they're bringing the best of what they make from a traditional point of view view sometimes from a personally adventuresome creative point of view sometimes from recycled and cutting edge social point of view. It's a real mix of creativity city that from our us-based experiences seems very out of the mainstream and therefore terribly exciting and motivating they must get a lot of just going to that and and meeting each other and seeing what they all do all around the world you that that must be just such experienced for an artisan who works in the community services that do the same thing and then meeting artisans who do wildly different things from other parts of the global. You've already understood the thing that the artists themselves I liked the best about it. They love exchanging topics with each other. Whether it's how to whether it's Oh my God you should try this. Sometimes they get together and collaborate after the market so somebody shares of an all white Chikan embroidery piece from Lucknow and they send handed off to one of their new friends to be dipped in indigo to be Bandini tie-dyed to to be transformed into something subtly and beautifully different so the exchanges which is really the magic plus the sales a lot of folks walk away from the market with a years worth of income in their pockets based on a twenty two hour event. We sell a around three three point. One two three point. Four million dollars worth of product in twenty one hours and all. The skit paid out Two days later so in five days you go from setup to pay out and reviewed archie. It's an amazing operation. It sounds like a really tight knit community than really so. Is it hard hard to join that community or WHO's finding new artisans for that. It's a very tightly jury. Joe Artists from all around the world apply online pictures and text and their two juries. There's a group of academics from museums around the world. Mostly around the. US who look at it from the point of view is of is this this really rooted in a cultural assets right that we recognize that there's techniques color languages languages motif. Is it routed somehow in community entity heritage and then the second group answers the question. Is this gonNA connect with the market. Does it represent a product. Does it represent a look. Does it represent a price is point and of course is it super beautiful. I mean that's that's the first question that we have to answer before we even proceed to the further analysis so those two groups are responsible. Secure eating something. That really is unique in the world. There's nothing like in the entire world so between that and what you're describing in your the book about being in touch with all these natural colors ways of getting color from the earth from plants a lot of this is about being in touch with what what you're making an and how it's being made and we talk about the supply chain a lot but most people aren't really at the root of their supply. I Chan they don't they don't go back to you. Know Not alive designer. Spent much time in cottonfields looking at different types of cotton as they're growing what the fibers look like in different fields. They get finished product. Kind of textiles What does it do for the world? If if people are more in touch with this I would love to answer your question in a complicated way. Cleans that's what the show is more. I think we need to look at the heritage Jane even as we look at the supply chain If you look back at how how we got where we are today in terms of what we make and how we make it into textiles especially The eighteen fifty six invention of the first synthetic dye. Mo- Oh Wien right by a teenage English chemists Perkins totally by accident. He was working with coal tar to try to find a synthetic Quinine quinine substitute right to treat malaria and the colonial era of of the British empire and he discovered that something that he was making Would dissolve Alvin Water and color rags in really very attractive sharp Purple Reddish purple. That unleashed the willful exploration exploration of using a lot of petrochemicals to substitute what were centuries thousands and thousands of years of heritage so for example the company that became. BASF right the maker of the cassette tapes that some of us are old enough to have fetish started off by making making synthetic indigo and interestingly the synthetic indigo they made did not appeal because they had not really captured that the full charm of indigo go went beyond just the indigo molecule. They had to go backward and realized that. Indie Ruben. A red molecule that would form in the process of indigo dyeing was needed to give the color depth so they had to go back and explore. Why Nature was so much more beautiful than what they were at first capable of making in any case since eighteen fifty six we have lost so much knowledge? If you and I walked down the street today and Looked at what people are wearing down the street and we asked ourselves well. How would you ever get that color? Are we using anything other than a chemical would have zero insight. Chances are right. We've left all that behind so the heritage chain I think has impoverished the richness understanding That we used to have about what comes from our world and how it's made and how valuable it is. We've gotten to a point where we're so distant from our heritage chain that things have the virtue of plastic bags of disposable valueless product after they've faded in the washed twice were done. There's a statistic out there that eighty percent of the clothing we buy ends up in a landfill within one year. And it's because we're so oh distant from people culture heritage skill invention and talent that the things we buy are not worth holding onto so then we go to the supply chain right and there really is in as an extension of this heritage chain a set of material knowledge judge that is still relevant in making textiles. It still relevant in making clothing and it's waiting for us to study at more and to really really incorporated into responsible valuable fashion creation.

Russia's undaunted voice of dissent
"The Russian activists Alexei Navalny has been a thorn in the side of President Vladimir Putin for a decade now. He's brave persecution. He's been imprisoned and yet he seems don't Klis correspondent Max. Seddon met him for lunch in a food court in Moscow recently league. Max is on the line now with me to discuss his impressions but first I'd like to open with a clip from the meeting. which gives a flavour of the character of the man? Another big Mac this my Russians rather rudimentary. What what he's saying here so we were wandering around the food court where he took me for lunch which is just across the street from his office in slightly out out of the way but rapidly gentrifying art a southeastern Moscow and this is the sort of place that even if it didn't exist in Russia they've had food around the world from your burgers ears Pasta Sushi to dahgestani dumplings and who's back Pilaf and other things and saying is a place like this that shows you in his mind that Russia As a whole could the really made it economically if it weren't for Putin and he described nisus glass ceiling that's more like a hideous moldy Soviet ceiling the Stop Russia from economically developing. Stick Landy Patillo. Then is a mere ski navy of the numbers suggest that he thinks that despite the huge spike in wealth in the first two years of Putin's rule which was mostly due to rising oil prices. He views the last two decades lost decades because he Says that so much has been stolen. That could have gone towards economic development and there are so many repressive rules and regulations that are holding it back. You've covered Russia for quite a while. Now these are quite strong and outspoken. Remarks how rat is it for a Russian activist to speak out like this. How brave is it to speak out like this I? I interviewed Navan nebout seven years ago in the thing. That is really remarkable about him when you speak to him as I've done many times sense. Sense is just how much breath of fresh air he is. Compared to your official Russian politicians who come from the Soviet bureaucratic addict tradition. They are very bad at talking to normal people in on manage settings you almost never see them give interviews to the independent media where they might says difficult questions. The volney grew up completely outside the system. He someone who was formed by the Internet and by the street and even compared to other people in the opposition and he's a very charismatic person. And this is what is really set them apart even amongst all the pressure that he faces to become the undisputed most popular challenger the Putin in the last few years ears. You say you've known him for a while you've covered rushing for awhile. Tell us how he entered politics. I mean what made him take on this role not only art Ukrainian on his father's side and he has relatives who live near Chernobyl outside Kiev in Ukraine for the first ten years his life up until the blast itself itself in Nineteen eighty-six. He will go and stay with his grandmother. Who lived in this village right near the nuclear power station and the aftermath of fat that we know so well the incompetent Soviet attempts to cover that were very big part of what shaped him because he doesn't have any of this nostalgia for the Soviet Union that Putin has been very big on a lot of people older than the volume has just forty three share? He was very much convinced by this early childhood experience that the system was wrong in the future. Russia's move away from it as far as possible more towards a European liberal democracy as he sees it the other thing. He told me that really shaped him was when he was already in his late twenties he he was working pro. Bono was a lawyer for an opposition party but it was official opposition party in Russia. There are the official parties. who were there to create a semblance of a real political system? They're really they facto controlled by the Kremlin the end. The parties themselves are run like Chiefdoms. Just like Putin's own party and the leaders are these many Putin's and he was working on Moscow City Council elections thousand five and ran against Russia's incredibly corrupt court system. Any said gradually just made him so furious that he became even activist. It's quite a story. I mean you say. He's not nostalgic for the Soviet Union. Interestingly he is though it seems something of a Russian nationalist. Can you talk us through who they send what influence it has on him. And how nationalist is he. Welna volley was actually kicked out of the Liberal Party that he was a member of in two thousand seven for his nationalist nationalist views. Of the sort that you would never hear discussed in polite company among liberals in Moscow and the US the express were very different from from the nationalism that you might think of associated with Putin which is more of the Soviet imperial stout in the Valdez was much more. Russian ethnic Chauvinism Virjee into race says. I'm against people. From the periphery of the Soviet Empire. So the caucasus-chechen Augustan and places in Central Asia Pakistan Cure Augustan Tajikistan stamp who provide millions of laborers who come and do construction jobs. And other things like that in Moscow the center of the Empire and he filmed in some pretty startling videos including one which showed him comparing people from the Caucasus. The cockroaches and mocking shooting them with a gun. He spent several years organizing organizing this annual nationals rally which was attended by all sorts of Neo Nazis and skinheads as well as other people at one of these rallies he used an anti Semitic blood libel trope to talk about Jewish guards. Did you talk about this of your lunch. Does he apologize for any of this. We did. This is something that the money is criticized for quite a lot even though no it's not really very big part of this program anymore. E only really says he wants if these regime for guests laborers from Central Asia but he has no regrets his explanation was that in two two thousand seven. There was this enormous gap between living standards in Russia's back Stan and millions of people were coming from Central Asia to work in Russia and it was a big political issue so the message disorder by rhetoric was a way of trying to get people interested. Max The interview you did with Nevada was for a weekly lunch with the F. T. Slot which normally unfolds in fanny a predictable lines could a swanky restaurant. Just two people the F. T. journalists and the interviewee this was rather different. You joined by someone feel interview view. Can you tell us about this weirdly enough. This is my third lunch with the F. T. that I've done in every single time I've been joined by someone who I don't expect to be there. And this time we were followed by the troll who apparently works for one of the fake news farms run by a Guinea per goes in the Kremlin caterer who runs the infamous Saint Petersburg troll factory. So you walked out of the office building. This guy yelled Alexei. Can you tell us where do you buy your okay involved. He told him to get lost. And the guy follow this rounds we wandered around the food court court and then when we bought our food then sat at the table across from us and watched us through the entirety. The two hour interview and you know all the said for the last six nine months or so ever since his foundation started investigating promotions catering contracts needs people who've been following him and his family around everywhere they go was he listening to you or oh just sitting there to be kind of threatening ish. It was more intimidation. I mean this was someone who was twenty five at most maybe younger and it's not being paid a lot of money to do this but the point is clearly just to harass him the entire time. He is trying to laugh about it he said. It's a good way the practice Zen but he came pretty close snapping a few times and it was obviously of your family's being harassed like that. He's accused promotion of being behind a physical assault assault with arm bar on husband one of his top aides. I mean the impression you get from this story and from other accounts in the valleys life is is that the pressure he faces is utterly relentless and he's been facing this for a long time how does he keep going one of the questions. I've asked many many times over the years. He always finds himself. Trying to explain is your. Why aren't you in jail? Why aren't you dead? And the answer is best as anyone until seem speed. The he's almost almost become too big to jail because when they tried to do it in twenty thirteen he was sentenced to
Mulvaney brashly admits quid pro quo over Ukraine aid as key details emerge... and then denies doing so
"On tonight major developments on many fronts in the impeachment inquiry we begin tonight with the one that eclipses them all and could fundamentally changed the course of this entire affair today one of the president's top advisers openly admitted what he the president and all the president's people have been denying for weeks now now he's trying to back wave from what he said what he said in great detail several times and not by accident right now acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney is furiously backpedalling from at all which only underscores the gravity of what he said today presumably with the president's approval he told the public told lawmakers pursuing impeachment told the world that yes the straighten withheld military aid from an ally under Russian attack to get that country to take action to help the president politically Mick Mulvaney admitted was a quid pro quo with Ukraine he didn't use those words quid pro quo but what he describes was just that and then he said this suggesting that we're all just a little naive for somehow being surprised equating what happened with the normal diplomatic give and take between countries which this is not it appears to be for personal game after all if this were normal it's hard to see what the White House has been trying fruitlessly now to stop all the participants in the scheme from testifying thing about it too congress another key player by the way ambassador Gordon Sunland went before lawmakers today but even as he was talking so it was Mick Mulvaney now here's the first moment from Malvinas press conference so the demand for an investigation into the Democrats was part of the reason that he was on the to with funding to you look back to what happened in two thousand sixteen certainly was was part of the things that he was worried about in corruption with that nation then that is absolutely on two thousand sixteen refers to that conspiracy theory the president's latch onto which blames Ukraine and the Democrats Not Russia for interference in the last presidential election now what Mulvaney just spilled out there is the exchange of something for something or the now familiar Ladan equivalent clear you just described is a quid pro quo it is funding will not flow unless the investigation into the democratic server happened as we do we do that all the time with Foreign Policy Oh okay well there was the president's acting chief-of-staff speaking for the president talking about the very first thing that president brought up on that July twenty fifth phone call with Ukrainian President Zelinski immediately after Lewinsky asked about the military aid we needed that was being held up Mick Mulvaney agreeing that what transpired on that call what he rudy Giuliani vice-president pence Mike pompeo and a cast of recently indicted accused felons were involved with for months was the very thing in the very words that the president others said it was not you take a look at the it caller was perfect I didn't do there was no quid pro quo just turned into a full blown threat a full-blown quid pro and I just don't see it this phone call all is a nothing burger in terms of a quid pro quo there was never any quid pro quo there's no quid pro quo would pro quo quid pro quo no quid pro hello there is no pro wealth or no pro quo today Mick Mulvaney admitted well yeah there was again didn't use those words a situation he described which he said get over it is a quid pro quo any tried to suggest that there was nothing wrong with it admitting it nothing wrong with emitting it because it just happens all the time and keeping them honest it's hard to see anything but bs because tonight as we said he is now furiously backpedalling away from what he said earlier recognition that speaking what appears to be the truth is terrible for this president so having made those disastrous remark he is now trying to say what he said he released a statement reading in part let me be clear there was absolutely no quid pro quo between Ukrainian military aid in any investigation into the two thousand sixteen election the latest word from it any in hopes perhaps of erasing the previous latest word which will play again for you now you just described is a quid pro it is this funding will not flow in less investigation into the democratic server happened as well we do we do that all the time with foreign policy and again he said we should get over it and perhaps he already has there's more breaking news on all of this including from the Wall Street Journal reporting that the president agreed on the need for Mister Mulvaney to walk back his comments yeah you think and personally approved his chiefs statement the paper citing a White House official more now from C. N. N.'s Jim asta who joins us from the White House I can only imagine what the response was when Mick Mulvaney finished that press conference and went back to whatever room he went to have gone well for him what's the reaction been inside the White House to all of this Anderson I mean I think Mick Mulvaney has gone from quid pro Oh to quit pro bono essentially what's happening tonight but basically you know when the president's legal team is putting out statements saying that they will we're not involved in Mick Mulvaney as briefing in the White House briefing room I mean that is pretty clear that they were not on board with this I'm told by sources familiar with these discussions go on inside the president's legal team that they were essentially blindsided and did not feel that what Mick Mulvaney had say help their cause very much having that all of that I just spoke with a White House official in the last several minutes who said that the president was involved somewhat in the statement that was put out by the White House the president according to this official felt that the media were intentionally misinterpreting what Mick Mulvaney said but of course Anderson that is more clean up on sixteen hundred As we as you just pointed out just a few moments ago not only was Mick Mulvaney saying there was a quid pro quo he almost seemed proud of it right Dan was a he sounded a pro. You know professorial during this briefing teaching all of us you know school kids this is how things work in the big leagues we do this all the time and then of course he had come out later on and released that statement one interesting thing to note if you go through that statement line by line Anderson the one that was issued by the acting chief of staff Z. evening it featured some of the same talking points that the president has been using over the last several weeks and saying that there was no quid pro quo that this was about rooting out corruption and so on sounds like they had to go back and rework that statement well I don't understand how Mulvaney could also in that same press conference stand there and say that the dirt on the Biden's that had nothing to do that that was not part of the quid pro quo even though we've all now seen the rough transcript in which that is item number two after the conspiracy theory about the server being in the Ukraine that's right and and keep in mind the president and his defenders for weeks I've been saying that there was no quid pro quo but in the rough call transcript the president admits he says in that rough call transcript that he wanted to get dirt on Joe Biden that he wanted to get dirt on Joe Biden's family what do we know by just looking at federal election law in this country it is a violation of law to seek foreign help in an election so the president is always is always trying to spin things obviously but clearly there is a violation of the law baked into that rough call transcript the thing that they were clinging to over these last couple of weeks anderson was that there was no quid pro quo and I think there's just no way around it the acting chief of staff blew that up today inside that briefing Krizner was on camera with George Stephanopoulos while saying Oh yeah it would be no probably if a foreign country had information I would totally take it and and you know who knows what he would get four well yes right he has spoken in this fashion time and again appreciate things just a few moments before suddenly reversed himself in the White House damage control when I spoke with the House Majority Leader Democrat Steny Hoyer leader Hoyer how damaging were Mick mulvaney remarks for the president in this impeachment inquiry will essentially really what I understand I didn't hear Mulvaney say but what I understand he says yes there was a quid pro quo and a in effect daring people to get over it because that's foreign policy now it's not what the Congress the United States appropriated money for an ally a war with and losing losing people a- and what the president decided to do is withhold that money which Mulvaney says was quid pro quo he doesn't say that Break Wilco but of good pro quo of for them doing something that he wanted done and then the conversation he said look by the way I need a favor favor was it to look into a political opponent not in two thousand sixteen but in twenty twenty And so I think it cannot help the case and will be part of the testimony and evidence that the committees are gathering Mulvaney is claiming that the president pursuing this conspiracy theory which flies facing the intelligence community says was Russian involvement in the DNC hack Levinas claiming that that was that was a concern about corruption in Ukraine just logically that also doesn't make sense I mean there's plenty of actual Ukrainian corruption but the president didn't raise any that all he talks about was this conspiracy theory about crowd strike and the Biden's it's there for everybody to read the conversation the president told the speaker of the house he the conversation was perfect which is why I presume he released it because he thought it was fine it wasn't fun it clearly was a quid pro quo it did I need to be stated this is the quit and that's the pro clearly the president of Ukraine knew what was going on clearly he knew that the president was saying I need his favor and by the way I've got your money and also I know that you want to visit the White House and obviously the contingency between the two was was really clear and I think mulvaney comments as I said shortly went out helpful to the president's
