A highlight from Ripple's Fortress Acquisition Shows the Brittleness of Crypto Infrastructure
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Tuesday, September 12th, and today we are talking about all of this dust up with fortress and the Ripple acquisition and what it means and who you should be mad at. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. All right, friends. Well, today we are talking about one of the biggest discussion points for the last week or so on Twitter, which has been the issues surrounding fortress trust. Let's begin our particular slice of the story on Friday when Ripple announced that they had acquired fortress trust. Now, the deal was pitched as an expansion of Ripple's regulated crypto offering as they built out a vertically integrated blockchain services product suite. And Monica Long, the president of Ripple, said in a statement, licenses are a powerful enabler to build and deliver best in class customer experiences for enterprises using Ripple's crypto infrastructure across our payments and liquidity solutions, which she was referring to as the fact that fortress trust holds a Nevada state trust license, which allows it to custody crypto and act as a financial intermediary with the traditional financial system. This would add then to Ripple's existing strategy of accumulating licenses. Between Ripple and its subsidiaries, the corporate group now holds 30 state money transmitter licenses, a New York state bit license and a major payment institution license from the Monetary Authority of Singapore. So commentary over the weekend on this fell into two camps. On the one hand, this could have simply been Ripple buying a company to add a custody service to its one stop shop approach to crypto. On the other hand, many viewed this as a quiet bailout of fortress. And indeed, the Friday acquisition announcement was slightly strange in tone. Executives asserted that fortress could add a key piece to Ripple's vertically integrated crypto offering. However, the deal announcement was a little bit out of sync with previous announcements from Ripple. Specifically, the acquisition valuation was not mentioned, which was out of character for Ripple who had brashly announced a 250 million dollar deal to acquire crypto custodian Medeco in May. And of course, we have to put it in the context into which it happened. Fortress itself was already viewed with skepticism. The licensed crypto custodian had been founded by former prime trust CEO Scott Purcell in December of 2021. Purcell had left prime trust in January of that year. That was around the same time that prime trust mishandled wallet storing customer funds, leading to an 83 million dollar shortfall. Several key executives left prime trust to follow Purcell into his new venture. The firm was also aggressive in hiring former banking regulators to their team. The rift between companies was so acrimonious that there were even allegations of IP theft in taking software systems built at prime trust across to fortress. In June of this year, the shortfall in customer funds at prime trust came to light. Around this, the company was first placed into receivership by the Nevada regulator and later declared bankruptcy. Now prior to prime trust acknowledging their insolvency, numerous high profile customers fled for other custodians. It was already widely suspected that prime trust was insolvent at the time. The most impactful departure from prime trust was swan bitcoin. In June, swan announced that they would be transferring all customer funds held in custody to fortress. The transfer took over a week and involved a shutdown of automated transactions with swan. To many, it felt like an emergency operation more than a normal business decision, although throughout the process, swan executives assured customers that funds were safe. So this is where we were over the weekend. Lots of speculation, lots of questions around fortress, lots of questions around ripple. And on Monday, new information came to light around the circumstances surrounding the fortress acquisition. The day before the acquisition, my birthday, September 7th, fortress had posted a disclosure about a security incident which they tried to make seem relatively innocuous. On that day, they tweeted, Thankfully, there is no breach within fortress technology or systems, impacted accounts were fully restored. And most importantly, of course, there is no loss of funds. We immediately terminated the vendor integration and out of an abundance of caution paused all accounts to assess and ensure system wide security. We are taking all necessary measures to make sure the vendor is held accountable. Although this has been resolved, transparency and security are of the utmost important to us and our customers. We also have some big company news we are excited to share later this week. Now, Ryan Weeks, a reporter at the block received a tip that the incident had been far more impactful than it was made out to be. Indeed, he was told that 450 Bitcoin worth around 11 .3 million had been stolen from fortress trust, although that specific amount has been unable to be verified. What has been verified is that the ripple deal was much more of a bailout of fortress than it initially seemed. A ripple spokesperson said, Conversations accelerated last week following the security incident via a third party analytics vendor, but this opportunity makes sense for Ripple in the long term. Luckily, Ripple was in a position to act quickly to step in and make customers whole, and there have been no breaches to fortress technology or systems. Fortress notified customers immediately of the incident when it happened, as they mentioned in their tweets. Now, for those of you eagle eyed observers out there, or I guess eagle eared as the case may be, owl eared, whatever, you'll notice that fortress's Thursday statement said, This technically is consistent with Ripple swooping in to make customers whole, but also somewhat misleading if in fact Ripple had had to bail fortress out to make those customers whole, but also somewhat misleading if ripple indeed had to come in to make sure that those customers didn't actually lose their funds. Now what was also made clear on Monday is that the ripple deal is still pending regulatory and due diligence approvals. Given that we already saw the Bitco acquisition of prime trust fall apart during the due diligence process earlier this year, there is certainly no guarantee that it actually goes through. Now, of course, as you've already heard, there are numerous other companies tangled up in this mess. Swan Bitcoin is, of course, one of fortress's most well known customers. They have been in an absolute narrative battle and have claimed throughout that they were completely unaffected by the issue and the client funds remain safe. The other companies impacted are the custodian services subcontracted by fortress. Their role in the industry is mainly as the holder of a relevant trust license rather than as a tech provider. We know, for example, that hot wallet services are provided by fire blocks, while cold storage is provided by Bitco. And indeed, with the behind the scenes detail now made public, Bitco CEO Mike Belshi wrote a Twitter thread outlining his disappointment with how the entire debacle was handled. On Monday, Mike wrote, they are still at risk and whether Bitco was somehow involved. Spoiler alert, we were not. When fortress lost funds, they chose to omit facts about what happened, downplay the event and conclude, quote, most importantly, no funds were lost. Obviously, we now know this was not true. I guess what they meant to say is we believe we fixed the problem and we have taken steps to make sure clients are made whole. But those two statements are not even close to being the same. Ripple has done the right thing and disclosed that a breach did occur. But fortress still has not made a real statement about what actually happened. So, summarizing what is publicly known, along with what we know from Bitco, one, fortress suffered a breach through some third party integration, not Bitco, two, via fortress's platform and some third party integration, the attacker was able to drain funds from fortress's hot wallet system, three, fortress used fire blocks for its hot wallet system, four, fortress noticed the failure and says they have fixed the problem with the third party, five, although fortress did use Bitco to custody some of its Bitcoin and digital assets, Bitco was not affected. None of the fortress assets held at Bitco were at risk from this third party integration or taken. After the breach, fortress reached out to Bitco. Bitco strongly advised fortress to disclose what happened immediately. Fortress did not do that. Eventually fortress decided to sell to Ripple. This is a great outcome because Ripple was able to make all clients whole and will hopefully help fortress with resources to correct the security weaknesses which led to this event. Ripple is a good actor here and should be applauded. The real victims here are fortress's clients who deserve enough respect to get the whole truth. They are not to be blamed. The whole situation is exactly why we need decentralization. We can't continue to be dependent on the honesty of custodians, bankers or trusted third parties acting with integrity when bad things happen. Bad things will happen and most humans don't have enough courage to be honest through it. So there are a lot of things that people are upset about here. One of the biggest strands of conversation has been around Swan. On September 11th, the company tweeted, Swan client coins are in insured cold wallets at Bitco and did not move during the reported incident at fortress. The coins are protected by video calls and physical access and are not subject to any incidents at fortress. Swan set up this agreement with fortress to use Bitco as a cold storage sub -custodian precisely to prevent such a scenario. Swan has direct on -chain visibility to funds at Bitco. When someone asked what kind of insurance Swan was referring to, Corey Clifton the CEO said, It's $250 million per wallet, with no wallet holding more than $250 million, provided by Lloyd's of London. It's the best setup we've seen. As always, take self -custody if you're willing and able. Now, responding to the critique in general of Swan being associated with these companies, which now have a less -than -stellar record handling customer assets and are now owned by a company that is anathema to many Bitcoiners, Corey wrote, Separation of brokerage and custody is the model for traditional assets for good reason, and there's a good probability it becomes law for digital assets in the U .S. I am not a fan of the trust -me -bro model of brokerage and custody under the same roof, like Mt. Gox and FTX. The goal is to have no single company able to unilaterally move user funds. We very intentionally set up Fortress and BitGo with that model. Now, I understand the narrative frustration here, but at the end of the day, the reason that Swan had to work with these companies is that there just wasn't anyone else. This is why as much as some Bitcoiners are worried about the entrance of traditional financial actors into the space, many others view it as necessary to just have more market options for crypto -native brokerage companies like Swan to actually work with. Anyways, the whole thing is a mess, reflective of how bad the infrastructure is for crypto and Bitcoin right now in the U .S., and a reminder of just how challenging digital assets are, even for companies that have big history in the space. The one other big story from yesterday that I want to cover was the FTX creditor update. The FTX bankruptcy team reports that they have marshaled around $7 billion in assets. Using updated valuations from the end of August, the estate holds $3 .4 billion in major crypto tokens. This includes $560 million in Bitcoin, $192 million in ETH, and $1 .1 billion in Solana. Now, of that, it appears that only $137 million worth of Solana is listed as vesting, meaning a much larger portion of the tokens may be eligible for sale than previously thought. The non -crypto assets include 38 properties in the Bahamas worth around $200 million, as well as $529 million worth of securities primarily made up of grayscale Bitcoin trust shares, $2 .6 billion in cash, and $4 .5 billion in venture investments, although no current valuation of those investments was provided. The firm's liabilities show $65 billion in non -customer claims. That figure is massively inflated by a $43 .5 billion claim from the IRS, which is presumed to be subordinated to customer claims. The IRS generally submits the largest possible tax claim during bankruptcy proceedings, but often negotiates down significantly or differs entirely to a creditor distribution. Of the remaining liabilities, a $9 .2 billion claim from FTX Digital Markets is assumed to be invalid or redundant, which leaves $4 .1 billion claim by Genesis and $2 billion claim by Celsius as the major non -customer claims to deal with. So far, a little over 36 ,000 customers have filed claims totaling $16 billion. Of the claims that have been scheduled so far, around 10 % of customers have agreed to their scheduled claims, while 18 % have disputed their claims and 72 % have yet to respond with either an agreement or a dispute. Now, easily the most discussed part of the news dealt with the firm's clawback strategy. Transactions done within a 90 -day window of the bankruptcy filing can be eligible for a clawback, but in practice, not all claims are pursued. The estate has successfully pursued $588 million in claims so far, and they identify an additional $16 .6 billion in clawbacks that could be pursued. The estate is currently considering how to deal with customer clawbacks where users withdrew from the exchange close to the bankruptcy being filed. Several options being looked at included the full 90 -day window for clawbacks as well as a shorter 15 -day window which captures the major public news surrounding the FTX collapse. Travis Kling tweeted about this saying, This brings up a big question of executability. How feasible is it for the estate to go sue people in every corner of earth? This is a really surprising turn in this deal. Everyone was thinking this outcome was quite unlikely the entire time. If the estate ends up doing what it looks like they want to, it will change the nature of this bankruptcy process. We'll learn more at the 9 -13 hearing. Indeed, the estate is due in court tomorrow Wednesday for an omnibus hearing which will cover numerous aspects of the case including the potential liquidation of crypto holdings as well. You might remember that three weeks ago FTX asked for permission to appoint Galaxy Digital as a selling agent. Selling would initially have a limit of $100 million per week which could increase to $200 million if creditors agree. The market has obviously begun to price in significant fear of this FTX liquidation. Sunday for example saw a liquidity breakdown in Solana as rumors of imminent dumping spread. And yet many think that the market is overreacting. Jeff Dorman, the CIO at ARCA said, The way crypto market makers and traders are front -running the FTX supply shows a complete misunderstanding of how a syndicated sale process works. This isn't an every -man -for -himself VC unlock. This is a court -ordered process that Galaxy will sell very slowly and opportunistically. Lastly, the potential reboot of the exchange remains a possibility. According to the report, 75 bidders have been contacted. The report stated that Proposals are being evaluated. Transaction timing will depend on nature of transactions, readiness of bidder, and other considerations. So, friends, if there are currently two archetypes of breakdown episodes, with one being legal battles that are increasingly poking towards a positive direction for this industry, and the other being cleanup from the excesses of years past, this unfortunately was one of the latter. But, as they say, the only way out is through, and so until next time, be safe and take care of each other. Peace.
"purcell" Discussed on Key Battles of American History
"Have to, as a follow-up question, I'm going to put you on the spot here. This is not in the notes, but yeah, I'm a big movie buff, and I love historical movies. I often do episodes where I discuss movies. And so I have to ask you, what you thought of the recent movie called Marshall, starring the late great Chadwick Boseman as thurgood Marshall. Have you seen it? I have to confess I haven't seen it unfortunately. Oh, okay. Well, okay. Anything to check it out. I won't ask the next question about how accurate is it? Okay. Well, maybe we'll get back to you on that one, but okay, yeah, no problem. So you mentioned the navy. So let's turn toward the navy. Now, about how many African Americans served in the navy during World War II. And as a follow-up question, I'll go ahead and give it an advance where black naval personnel treated any better than black soldiers and are there any stories of black naval personnel that you would like to share. So overall there are about a 160,000 black personality served in the navy almost all of them were men, wasn't until later in the war that you saw a small handful of black women as nurses. And the women's auxiliary with the navy. So about a 160,000 overall. The treatment was bad in different ways and the different branches. I think the navy and the Marine Corps were in the competition for the worst treatment through most of the war. I think the Marine Corps because they explicitly banned black Americans at the outset. I think the navy because they really locked black Americans into this mess attendant role where they essentially were servants for white officers. It wasn't until 1944 that you had the first black officers commissioned. But for the first several years of the war, they weren't allowing black Americans to serve in any capacity, other than mass attendance. And the kind of treatment they described is kind of what you would imagine if you're job on a ship that's meant to be doing the cooking and cleaning for white officers. They were treated in that way. They described just very second class demeaning treatment aboard these ships. And what I think is so interesting about the naval story will come up in some of the examples I mentioned here is that obviously if you're on a ship around a submarine and you're at war, there aren't any roles that aren't in combat. Technically in combat roles, but if a ship started getting hit by torpedoes or started taking fire from planes or from other ships, they were very much in danger and a number of black must tendons lost their lives. Black Americans that they would be assigned some of the lowest roles on these ships, but not given any honors or accolades. It would come with the different combat roles, one might take on a navy ship or submarine. I think the most famous navy Purcell from the war and I think probably the most famous individual black American to serve in World War II was Doris Miller, who was one of the heroes at Pearl Harbor. He was a mess attendant on the USS West Virginia. He was a 23 year old from Waco, Texas, a big guy, a former football player, and he was a boxing champion on the ship. On the morning of the attack of Pearl Harbor, he performed very courageously.

But I love the fact that everyone's competing and that this is a race. Now, got to make sure you get security, right? Obviously. This is some new, more complicated technology. So that's something we won't be able to know until after the fact. But yeah, it's exciting to see for sure. I should mention too, both David and I are advisers for matter labs ZK sync and also I'm an adviser for polygon. We love and support the ZK EVM ecosystem for sure. We also own some eth David, disclose that. I don't think we need to disclose that. Tornado cache developer to stay in jail as the Dutch trial continues. This is Alexei Purcell. We talked about him so often when this happened in August earlier this year, this is just a heartbreaking title. For the story. And this guy has been in jail for developing open-source code. As far as we know, more serious charges have not been put forward, he put open he helped develop tornado cash, which is sanctioned, and now he's in jail for it. And there's a trial going on. So hopefully this is not permanent, but the fact that he's been in jail for, I don't know, how long is this David? Like almost a half a year now. What? So I know you said this is a disheartening title. So let me run this by you. Perceives lawyer said that they had a good beginning in educating the court about how decentralized finance works. The lawyer quoted said, we had the opportunity to explain what the basis is for tornado cash and why it is not money laundering. It is our opinion that the lack of knowledge is what's keeping him here. Dutch public prosecutors allege that perceive rather than merely publishing code, said that he accepted accepted piles of suspicious cash without question. So there are two very different realities being talked about here. We'll see. Yeah, we will see. And so is this such a misunderstanding? And we have to just educate that tornado cache is what it is. It's a jail for 6 months because we didn't know about DeFi. Sorry. Or was part of actually helping money laundering. Maybe there's much more to the story that we don't know. We'll find out. Yes, it's true that we don't have all the evidence. But the serious charges haven't been laid. I guess that's what the court case is for. One other thing I'll say is look at the contrast. I like to say pert F is in jail and not able to be released on bail. Who's out on bail, David? Oh, this guy named SPF. Out on bail and something like a quarter $1 billion or something. It's so crazy the contrast here.

"One of my favorite people has written on this Alfredo Ortiz, the real race revolutionaries, how minority entrepreneurship can overcome America's racial and economic divide. It doesn't have the last word here. That's my, okay. It's divides, yes. That is a bold statement by a bold man, Alfredo. Congratulations on your book. Thank you very much. Dennis is honored to be on your show as always. Alfredo was the president of a group that I adore. If there was a stronger word in English, I would use it. The job creators network so this is his thesis, minority entrepreneurship. Can overcome America's racial and economic divides. So to whom is your book dedicated?

"Rate? I think into the outlooks of next year, there's a huge mystery to that. Yeah, I mean, I think our rate of 5 25 to 5 50, you know, it's not necessarily the most dire situation. We do have the unemployment rate rising. That is enough of a high enough rate to cause a mild recession. But we're not talking 7, 8% unemployment. We've got it getting too good. Do you see evidence of a labor market troubled? I just don't see the evidence other than the flash of tech and maybe the flash of every financial institution except Citigroup. Yeah. I just don't see the evidence. No, we wouldn't yet either, but I think if you start with the assumption that the fed will do what it takes to control inflation in our view that's getting rates at least to 5 25 to 5 50, potential upside still. That means that they need to see a loosening in the labor market. And we're not seeing it yet, you know, for sure. But as we're getting into the middle of next year, we would expect that you're seeing starting to rise in the off hours. Veronica stay with us radio and television. Good morning to you, an economic set of data at 8 30 here that moved the markets. No question about that. Yes, it's a Thursday before the holiday. Yes, it's boring. No, it's not. Futures, deteriorate negative $20 futures, less or so. I'm going to call it down one 21. NASA, down 7 tenths of a percent. Excuse me there. 20.36 on the vix and Lisa earmark. Now at three basis points, the two year yield higher yield 4.24%. I guess it's a Jerome Powell. He is going to raise rates feel. It's a feel that perhaps we can't be complacent in this bet that we're just going to continue with a disinflationary impulse in Veronica. We start going into the granularity underneath it. It becomes very interesting because we can see that some of the disinflation in goods changes course next year. Are there other areas like that where some of the aspects of the inflation rate that have brought down inflation this year will reverse and go the other way next year I think about oil prices, gasoline costs, I think about what you're talking about with used cars. Are there other components as well to cause more goods inflation next year than people are currently accounting for? Yeah, I think there are definitely are still some underappreciated maybe upside risk to goods prices. I think most people expect that supply chains have been correcting goods demand as much softer. Yes, commodity prices are lower too. And that means, you know, softer core goods prices. But there are some upside risks, you know, if we're getting into a cold winter, you know, higher energy costs. China reopening, you know, if there's a lot of people who are falling ill and not being able to work and that creates new supply issues, that there's definitely some upside risk to goods broadly, not just cars. Veronica, thank you so much. Greatly appreciate it. Veronica Clark, with us a city group is we have a moving market here off buoyant GDP as well. I guess it's claims and fully employed America, at least it gets it going, but I'm sorry a 3.2% statistic on GDP is stunning, ending September 30. And what's it driven by? Personal consumption. I'm 2.3% versus the initial read of 1.7%. But this isn't just initial read. This is the third revisiting of the data. It kind of speaks what we're talking about, how complicated it is right now to get a clean read on what's going on given all of the different inputs that are moving at different paces. Tom Purcell, he publishes moments ago with RBC capital markets along that line to consumer how resilient and I think we heard today that surprised some Peter hooper Deutsche Bank from John Gollum and strategy at Credit Suisse. That's a surprise here into the season and with what I have to cook for Christmas dinner. I'll be adding to the consumption. Oh yeah, I thought you were doing the hand. I think I've got to make like three stops at four grocery stores or something, you know? Can you measure the lines are going to be like at the grocery store? I guess you're going to find out you'll do some front line reporting. Do you read the magazines when you're in line and put them back? Do you do that? I haven't done that since I was about 15. Yeah, exactly. Look, this is going to be an interesting holiday moment because people still have jobs. And the sentiment read that we just got that was higher than expected speaks to that. People are levering up yes, but they're also getting wage gains. How do you parse this into the consensus maybe a month ago that we're going to have a recession next year at the beginning? I'm looking at 7% plus nominal GDP. I'll defer to the experts 3.2% at GDP against all that gloom of last summer as well. And I go back and dare I say it is not too America. It's three Americas. There's an America that all the politicians, everyone has to decide is a lost America. You know, it's always been there. I think it's grown as my op-ed for the day. But then there's an America dealing with their recession, dealing with their inflation in spades without wage growth. I will say that probably the quote of the morning comes from bespoke investment group is market participants try to parse through all of these vagaries, make a game plan and stick to it, unless it's not working.

At the same time, whilst also committed to climate policies. And I think this dilemma is going to provide a bit of interesting sort of dynamics in the sort of green space over the next couple of months, but I think as with anything, I think we're probably going to be muddling through for the next couple of months and the path at least resistance is one where neither gets solved in the best possible way.

I love music and anyhow that was hilarious because we all. we're just so excited about making caramel. That went out there. And we we sent big glass jars.

The question i'm going to ask you then. So i i read a bit that there were to kinda hardships within the production To total loss floods right. So that's it's to hear that you're still like rocking and rolling and doing the thing it's it's a testament to just hard-working getting things done. How do you keep going. You get past those types of things. You know it's something. I'm not quite sure. What the characteristic is that. I have but i don't even entertain the thought of not continuing. I came close denied that the second flood i sat down. We used to be in hamden at the bottom of union street and i sat there. You know at the yellow caution tape. Watching the jones falls you know. Destroy the space and that was one moment very briefly when i thought i don't know if i have the energy to do it again but you don't think the truth is i get my strength for perseverance through knowing that we really do have a family here. I'm i feel responsible for not just investors that i have in the business to do what i candidate have the company's succeed but for these people to continue to have a job that they care about. And that's you know can pay the bills and that they feel so..

You need another piece of equipment or another body or another so but at the same time have loved that journey because it's a challenge. I think part of being an entrepreneur. Is i think if you weren't interested in challenging yourself or taking a risk it wouldn't gravitate to you the way that it has. Yes so i think i think the growth adoption of a new product line with the saas. The reach were now at the holidays. We we ship all over the world which is kind of fun we have stores. I think we have over eight hundred accounts now. And we're in every state you know. We're starting to kind of get a little bit of a footprint outside of the mid atlantic To it's been that growth has just been really interesting and fun at that's good to hear and it's like it's like yeah like the the thing that really stuck out to me was it just keeps you interested a whatever. The thing is that you're doing once you have that down in a. I know what. I'm doing an over. This is maybe there's room to expand in this way. I'm not gonna. I'm gonna go from eight to eight h or whatever and just kinda was still. Make it exciting that you wanna keep coming back and feel like okay. How can i do the slightly different but still get to that same result. How can i optimize this. And things like that Soon as you said it applied to to. Just what i do the steph will have you. It's like all right. This is just looking at numbers all day is. Can i come up with a tool to automate this somewhere. How can i make this. I can i make this a game or something.

You know the people that work here really loved to do their part really well. They know that directly affects the next person being able to do their job and likewise they expect a lot of the person. Come in for them. So there's a real process flow here but it karma lista. Yeah somebody that has pride in their work that loves our products loves the aspect of what we are as a small business trying to grow and we do a lot of Community giving and interaction. I'm loving our social media. We have a fantastic director of marketing.

I think there's room to have multiple carmel maker here and the beauty of baltimore. Is there still support between one another which is really interesting. I've lived a bunch of other places. And i think that's unique to baltimore the support of one another. And that's the thing that i've been hearing in various communities whether it'd be within the artists that i speak to. The entrepreneurs is kind of unique. Cool people have one. I believe that broad space pacemakers and always that community that that's a thing that's out there and for people who aren't in the know who are outside of baltimore. Oh you guys are jerks. You guys are that it's like the people that are here seem to be really supportive of each other and very like very like an a family kind of way. What have you know not stepping on anyone's toes and trying to make sure everyone prosper is because as you put it there is room for more than one. Yeah so you so. We talked a little bit before That you're transplanted area right. Yep i am from seattle. Well originally from boston. I've zigzagged around the country. But i spent twenty nine years in seattle.

We're very small. It was literally myself and maybe two or three other people. The two people that i join me are still with me here today. There now young moms and you know. It's it's hilarious. They've sort of we really. We really are a family here. We're sort of growing together. But i think part of the one of the changes is just the growth.

"The recipe was handed down right and it's generations because i wasn't sure between four four to five generations. All is there much room for deviation and is there any plan to extend those those current offerings. I think i read their five. Is that true or not a bit. Yeah so the first point about deviation from the recipe. So i really did commit myself early on to not deviating from the standard recipe. You know carmel. In of itself is has base ingredients that that really anybody can make a car off. They set out to do it. I think what makes us different is the process and the types of material ingredients that we use and so i didn't wanna deviate from that. In fact i tried years back. I used to be in whole foods for a long period of time and then they adopted no high fructose corn syrup policy and i was told my products had to either adapt or not be on the shelf so i toyed around with using gavi service tapioca syrup. You name it. I tried it and it just changed the fundamental texture of my product. And i had to say. Well i can't. I can't deviate that way. Because it's not the same. But i will say. The original recipe was for disturbed vanilla caramel and so we have developed flavors off of that we do have the five flavors. We've got original salt a dark chocolate salt one covered in milk chocolate. And as you say this the chesapeake which had old bay Couple times a year we do these limited batches. What will do really fun. Flavors of we've done lemon rosemary. We do cappuccino. We've done s'mores you know what we'll do these other variants and sell them in batches. We my a few years back. We incorporated caramel sauce. So we do a couple of different flavors of caramel sauce. And the next the next i wanna do is a candy bar. So that's going to be the third outlet for for where we go so i'm honestly to keep our head down and just do what we do right now. Well and grow that and then have a little bit more up the variety of flavors and stuff a candy bar and you took back that. I can't believe i said that atlanta. I'm supposed to keep it. Hush hush so break. It's like breaking news. Just hit the cappuccino one great. I love cappuccino. I actually had one later in the day that i normally would so hearing something like that. It's just like why are you teasing. Bg yeah like. I think that that's always look for. What's you think in an effort to try to get baltimore out there in a position that there are things part of the landscape. The the iconography. As far as baltimore's concerned i start thinking of like what's the candy here. What's the food here. And things like that and you know not for nothing.

And i don't think if he hadn't written into me she probably would have completely surpassed me and i'm so. I'm really grateful first and foremost that. You've brought this incredible women to my attention. But can i ask. Where did you come across. Ana oh gosh and quite a number of years back now. I'm my background is working in and talk. Raphy lots of different certify options medical photographer But in the past ten fifteen years. And i really went back to my first love of traditional doc processes an alternative photographic processes so those tend to be processes that might be made without a camera. Even so. that's where. I really found out about anorak kuenz because my passion for one of those processes which is the science type and what is the tape for anyone. That's perhaps never heard that term before. Well hopefully there's a slightly in the name in the sense that it process that produces blue and white images at the end of it and it's a sort of photograph process of contact. Printing was invented back in eighteen forty. Two an anna was one of the m well. In fact she's noted as being the first person to create a photographic book and it was with that process that she created that book. So yes it's really fascinating process for me. It's really important because he's probably one of the the least impact on on the environment as in you can wash and they make out in the ocean. If for instance. So that sort of my my interesting is while it speaks to so took trying to lessen my photographic footprint as well so yet to really beautiful process. It's one the can be ease ready simply you can. But it's not Pony different things that you can. You can do within wasif using it. It's been really fascinating. Actually because although it was never going to be because of the just the two tones it was never going to be taken on into the history of photography when when it was being invented and developed it really is such a beautiful process that in the lawsuit of since i've ready been working with it again. I've really known in the last few years that white people getting ready entrusted in it. You can use it with chiltern new. You know you can. So it's got so much scope really as a as a netflix process that you can do at home and it's such a simple process in its in. Its by be basic forms. While i think. That's what's really intriguing for me. A about the process of of of purchasing these and the first thing i came across it actually by the i work in a sculpture gallery and it was one of our artis that has created a couple of prince using the process and i had never heritage before it's so so fascinated by thank first and foremost really kind of talk about ana yet and who who was anna can on why she important while the me back in the in the anna lindh. She was born in seventeen at nine thousand nine and she died in eighteen. Seventy one victorian period and it was obviously a period when there was an awful lot of invention and discovery recent Across numerous scientific fields happening photography itself was invented and developed during that period photography as we know it now was invented at that time by i. Think for me with anna. It was because women in particular that time when not necessarily considered sort of science wasn't considered to suitable pastime for them to to take part in so for me having women in a position where they could actually push the boundaries and rock the boat to everyday life then obviously. She came from a wealthy a privileged background to although women as a whole had less opportunities. She did obviously have a slightly better opportunity than other women. In the sense that have farther was a scientist and he really encouraged her her education and shared his knowledge with when she was a child. Mother died not long after she was born so i think that they became quite a strong partnership as it were and she grew up with a passion the science and a passion for botany in particular So she was actually a botanist and also an artist as wow one of the things she did for her father. He translated a polk and she illustrated it which was all about shelves so she was very good drawing beautiful illustrations as well so she had all of those interests and passion. It wasn't intellectual when she was a little bit older that she discovered the type process and the had the opportunity to actually share a collection. She'd been collecting numerous earned plants. Flowers see like in a herbarium over the years and it wasn't until she. She made this discovery with family friends around the science type process that she she was able to then shed on a bigger
Researchers recover 1-million-year-old mammoth DNA
"You would think after being extinct for thousands of years, mammoths would have no more surprises. Well, the world's oldest DNA's samples say otherwise, to mammoth molars pulled from the permafrost in north eastern Siberia contained didna dating back to more than a million years ago. It's a big leap backwards in time that that's which was Luca Dillon is at the center for Paleo Genetics in Stockholm. And he says this mammoth DNI is twice as old as the previous record holder, which came from an ancient horse Now sequencing million year old knee like this was impossible. Just a few years ago samples that old were just too small to work with. Now researchers can see incredibly small samples, but it's challenging to put them together. Tom Vander Vault also works with the center for Paleo Genetics. Imagine if you're Edna is fragment that into literally millions of tiny pieces. It is a painstaking puzzle. Well, it's not only one parcel, it's actually multiple. Purcell's so imagine. You know, you have one parcel for the malice genome. But then you have another passage for the whole bacterial content of the examples. You have another possible for the human Dina for the paleontologists and us in the lab. Once they had finished sorting out the mammoth bits. The DNI gave the scientists a unique window into mammoth evolution. Delenn says the standard view holds there was only one mammoth species in Siberia a couple million years ago. What we find now is that actually we found two different lineages. We can't really say they're different species, but they're clearly two different genetic types of malice so that that came as a complete surprise to us. The ancient DNI. A also gives clues the origins of the Columbian mammoth, which lived in North and Central America. Here's Tom Vander Volk again Good kind of show that this Colombian moment is a hybrid species between two off the genetic lineages. So one is the new general image that we found in this paper. And the other is the willing mama genetic limits, So to say their work appears today in the journal Nature. Alfred Rocca of the University of Illinois at Urbana Champagne wasn't involved in the work, but wrote on accompanying editorial. It's an absolutely amazing discovery. It takes back field of ancient DNAs to Twice is far in geological time as before, and that genetic puzzling unlocks the possibility.

A Panel on Parcel JS
"Who would like to describe what parcel is can take that one so. Is. A bundler cheers cheers. Suppose cheers, anyway. So, parcel takes in. All your code and kind of walks through it and builds up a whole graph of dependencies, and then spits out a set of smaller files or larger files, containing more more more files More original files and and then you ship that to an end user so you start out with modules. That's your source code, and in the end you end up with kind of an optimized. Bundle for production that you can ship to end users that's kind of going to load faster than done the original source code, so that's kind of the overall picture of what like bundling as feel like. You've described purcell before. Yeah a couple of times. What are some examples of web applications that are bundling? And why would they want to bundle? I think you alluded a little bit to making smaller packages, cheers! But y else you might have source code that might not directly in the browser might use things like type script or Kind of future Java script that isn't quite implemented across all the browsers yet. So that's another reason why a lot of build tooling exists out there in general. So I don't know kind of parcel. Parcel is a bit more opinionated. I suppose than some other tools out there and not it gives you more more of this out of the box. and so it kind of ties together a lot of those tools that you'd normally use. To build things into kind of more unified experience. And so so that's kind of another reason why it use it to elect is just to help you build applications quicker. Any examples of web applications that you are all aware of maybe it's not even parcel but. I mean a lot of the. That we're all working on, are using some form of online I almost one say the keyword there, but chose not I mean these days. It's kind of hard to find application that isn't bundled I guess In, the beginning there were no modules in in Java script at all, so you just had kind of scripts and everything was running in the global scope, so was kind of chaos. Right and I. Don't know if you all remember things like require s or amd or these kind of early types of. Module systems that people people built and or or just like kind of cat or just carefully arranging your script tags together to to build buildings together so. kind of. came out of that to try to make things both faster and an easier to use so the first kind of module system that was really widely used in terms of bundling was kind of common j, s which was. Created in the node ecosystem, so on the server side almost but people brought this to the browser through things like browser. So Browser Fi was kind of a very early bundler that it took this this common Jaaz syntax that people were using to create modules that were kind of well scoped to file boundaries, so variables weren't leaking outside of the scope and all that stuff. So you could, you could build more modular. I mean module applications so. so browser Fi-. was one of these early bundlers that put put these things together for the browser, so it emulated the. Module System but but bundled everything up into a single file that ran in the web browser. And these days we have like a native module system built into web browsers. It's the US module system that came out in twenty fifteen. Yes, Twenty fifteen SPEC. And like people were finally able to start Mike writing modules in a way that's actually specified as part of the language, and this gives us kind of lots of different benefits including you know better. Since, it's built into the language. It's easier to analyze. Ahead of time at bill time and all that so I think we'll probably get into some benefits that later on, but. Kind of just an overview of kind of history of. Module Systems

Trump's push to reduce drug prices in State of the Union boosts hope for action this year
"We might see some bipartisan action coming out of Washington when it comes to drug prices so if you remember during trump so to speak as say the union speech he actually got Democrats to stand and applaud when it came to Loren drug prices yes I'm calling for bipartisan legislation to achieve the goal of dramatically lower prescription drug prices get a bill to my desk and I will sign it into law without delay so fairly there's been movement on that front but there was one of partisan disagreements who would take more credit for its also will range of competing bills you know how people throw other crap into the lawyer like why are we funding paper airplanes what I don't know some VS whatever that happened with other bills in the past but Laurie drug prices is something where both sides really agree on and the Republicans in the unit because they have promised to help fix healthcare after Obama's mess and they didn't do it things might be a little better some of the deductibles may be a little better some of the insurance our premiums might be down a bit but it wasn't the relief we saw before you know two thousand eight two thousand nine so if they can at least lower prescription drug prices they could say they have a win in the health care category Democrats are going to campaign on the Medicare for all or public option so it is speech did not actually endorse a specific approach so you know we don't know if this has to do with him you know negotiated with China has been able to get drugs from China figure out an FTA use speedy approval for certain drugs are Nancy Pelosi and house Democrats are pushing for a bolder action to lower drug prices they have a bill that was passed in December to allow the government to negotiate lower prices the bill is called H. R. three and so when trump made his remarks some house Democrats were chanting HR three that's what they were chanting because it was like one of our what are the same so trump supporter governor bush Asian during the two thousand sixteen campaign he said he would go she like crazy but he backed off of it why well if the government convenes private health care we start to go towards socialism and the reason why prices are up is it because you know everybody says why can't we get the same price as Mexico has Canada has our center up the well it's tricky you know I would love to be able to get an antibiotic for a dollar and the way the generic companies make these drugs yeah absolutely you can mean I mean you know you would think that they would still make some sort of a profit but they don't want to squeak by these companies need to because I mean look at what's happening with all that and D. M. A. N. N. D. E. A. in though that cancer causing contaminants and when I went one should ever company okay generic companies still need a a buffer because of the FDA comes in gone what will global level we need to take a look at this so everybody's halls we need to we need to you know I recall you can't just barely you know squeak by on a Buck a prescription so they rely on Americans to give them that clutch now why US one on another country will because their drug what is still that serve their drugs are going to sell then they you know they go where they can get away with it and right now insurance companies allow them to get away with it so there is room to negotiate there is room to go down on the flip side though you have some companies going I we can make this drug cheaper now with all the rules and regulations and everything we have to go through you know in other countries you don't of estrogen process you come up with the drug in America you need to make sure it gets approved because two years of our anti and then it makes us the market sometimes only a few years left on patent so this idea of we have so much regulation as it is that's why the prices are up because we only have a few years to make our money back or to make a profit that ends up forcing you know prices to go up so the Republicans have to be very very delicate when it comes to we're going to you know lamb bass the companies and you know we're going to force them to pay less because then it could also cause a big change in the in the system so Grassley white unveiled does limit some drug price increases in Medicare right now trump doesn't mention any executive action on drug prices again it's a district trump has proposed Lawrence a Medicare drug prices by linking prices to those in other countries not sure what is going to do is again the say the union is very general they don't go into specific plans it's for this what we're gonna do this year so we'll see what happens personally I love it the federal pharmacy and I could get a medication for two three Bucks I love it the thing is is usually generic sell us going generic and make intergeneric prices don't rice would be the key to keeping drug prices low the problem is is then are we going to have any new drugs coming down the pipeline if they don't think they could sell and we need new trucks with the medication that a fight the crime virus we need a good anti flu medication we need you know and so I you know what companies are going to step up and do that so it's tricky now certain states are trying to you know take measures take you know things into their own hands when it comes to drug prices they say six in ten Americans are Tate were taken at least one prescription drug court to the Kaiser family foundation seventy nine percent of those surveyed survey to the cost of medications was unreasonable the report also found that three out of ten Americans do not see the medications as prescribed because a worry about cost yeah they spread it out so you tell program was created two thousand eighteen it's a state law dubbed right to shop by Republican representative norm Thurston public employees health program offered if only to people using a drug on a list of about a dozen medications where the state could have significant state of the one hundred sixty thousand state and local public employees cover biting sure fewer than four hundred were eligible according to managing director Purcell officials of track the medications for the manufacturer to the pharmacy to the patient make sure people were given the same drugs and what home did work with a specialty pharmacy working it with one of the largest private hospital systems so they're working they're moving there's a represented from a company provide are ex that is escorted escorted patients of San Diego to Tijuana back across the border and so you know again I don't know if I could trust the medication Mexico but certain you know people are taking certain actions to get cheaper drugs ten state workers and participate in the program they believe the state a state over toward the twenty five thousand dollars California governor some is going to have a plan that will increase competition the generic drug marketplace having a a brands of prescription drugs that's California branded so now they're gonna compete with private enterprise and hopefully lower drug costs that way get not sure what that would do with the private market again they got to play this regatta tread very carefully the of the governors and no state has more at stake on the issue of healthcare we will use our market power and a moral power to demand fair prices for prescription drugs I will continue to move closer to ensuring healthcare for California the California law has required drug companies to report any price increases of the state generic drugs saw three your medium price increase of thirty seven point six percent and that was based on list drugs of drugs most prices present an article just council rebates so you know why are these crazy these prices skyrocketing so I I do like there is some transparency I don't like the idea of government control and I'm a little cautious and I'm a little nervous about how the states are pursuing Louisiana did something interesting they have the state to go she to deal to pay a flat fee for prescriptions for hepatitis C. drugs beginning last July the state began a quote subscription model treatment that officials say could cure tens of thousands who had hepatitis C. napa see drugs expensive it costs a few thousand a month for that one so they're starting to work on a program where they can get this high price medication thanks for others which could stop

G7 leaders vow to help Brazil fight fires, repair damage
"You forest fires continue to burn in the Amazon rainforest in other regions of Brazil while the international unity is calling on Brazil's government to do more to battle the fires Brazil's president says the spread of misinformation has turned this into a political issue more now from correspondent Steve constable Chris as expected the fires in the Amazon rainforest became a priority topic at the G. seven meeting France's president Emmanuel macron make sure it was part of the agenda what do you estimate to that because there was a true convergence today we all agreed to help as quickly as possible the countries that were affected by the fire he suggested that France might pull out of an international trade agreement between Europe and Brazil because of the belief that Purcell's conservative president jive also narrow wasn't meeting his nation's obligation to protect the Amazon the European Union president Donald tusk said the E. U. was not considering such a measure at the same time the issue is so ready to offer financial hope to fight the fire Brazil has received offers of help in battling the fires from several nations president Wilson are awarded in the military to help with fire fighting operations over the weekend he released a video message to the world in response to the criticism he and his government have been receiving yes that was the list also so that's the only two kids Paulson are said his nation is in a traditionally hot dry and high winds season where unfortunately burns occur every year in the Amazon region he said in the ring is here's the fires are less intense than in warmer drier years such as this one they occur more often regardless both in

But are we too late to the party from American public media? This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Kimberly Adams in four Molly would. If you're shopping for holiday tech, you'll probably see a bunch of devices being marketed as five G ready five G is the next generation of super fast internet, but it needs infrastructure. More bandwidth for streaming videos games and connecting the ever-growing internet of things. The Federal Communications Commission is trying to open up that bandwith by auctioning off little used parts of publicly owned airwaves portions that may not have been useful for three or four G, but are now in high demand FCC Commissioner, Jessica Rosenthal explains. Why well what's really cool about these airwaves and this spectrum is it's high band spectrum? And that means it has a lot of capacity for broadband, though, that capacity is limited because the propagation characteristics of this spectrum are not that great. And what that means is. Is that we can pump lots of video on lots of activity over it. It's just the signal won't carry very far. But that's a new mix of technologies that were exploring with five G, and I'm excited to see it in market and at use in any kind of transition to a new technology. There are winners and losers as you're watching the results of this auction come in are you seeing kind of who's coming out on top. And and who may be losing out. Well, we don't have the results all in yet. But one of the things that I think we have to be mindful of is that we can't just sat aside. Our wireless airwaves for licensed uses sold at auction. We also have to keep some airwaves unlicensed and most people don't know what unlicensed airwaves are they might sound illicit or legal. But in fact, those are the airwaves were WI fi takes place. So we all use them every day kind of public property in the skies. And we gotta make sure that as we push more of our wireless airwaves to market. We keep some for unlicensed in WI fi as well. Some other countries have already done this are we behind where we should be in picking up this technology and rolling it out. I think we're at risk of falling behind, you know, the United States lead in the last generation of wireless technology known as four g we have about five percent of the world's population. But there was a point at which we had half the world's for G deployment. And what happened with that? Leadership role is amazing because the applications economy grew up here on our shores, the operating systems for smartphones all came from here, and you know, what other nations saw that leadership, and they're chomping at the bit to get ahead of us in this next generation. What's the consequence of that for us? Well, we'll have to see we are rounding the bend now about to hold many more auctions, which is a good thing. But we're going to be mindful of the fact that other nations watched our leadership in four G and are quite interested in making sure they're at the front of the pack for five G that was Jessica Rosenthal. Purcell one of four commissioners at the FCC and worth noting. Currently the only democrat the other recently retired. This is the first five G auction. There are more coming. But the FCC hasn't announced all the details yet, I'm Kimberly Adams. And that's marketplace tech. This is APN on Sherpur from Lincoln, Nebraska.
