How how should they hear except that'd be appreciate except he be sent how she'll be grounded. If nobody tells me. I need to be right right. Might need to be anchored. Well thank about it. You just said something that i think is so very important that we missed because god all throughout the years old testament times new testament times. God has given us people that have called as his messengers as his servants. To teach us to lead us Through this this journey of life he didn't just put us here and say okay. You're on your own. He gave us his word. He gave us people that have called that he has chosen to be able to minister to us that we may be able to live this journey. And i think as we talk about this in a living out your best life you keep asking god. What are you quickening in means that you want me to give birth to now in earlier. I gave one definition. As i said there are many. But here i'm referring to quickening as when a woman is pregnant with chow. She she reaches the stage of gestation of of which the fetal motion is fell. He's feeling something now. She's feeling that baby on the inside of moving kicking whatever happened. What is it. that's in your life in your spirit that you feel the motion of god moving that he wants you to give birth to. There's something working on the inside of me. That god is working me and wants me to give both to that. It will come out of me for me. It has taken me many many years and seasons of life to begin to understand. It's all about god. And god wants to use me for his glory. He's given me the gifts. He's given me talents. He's giving me assignments he's called me. He's done these things. Now he says. Will you depend on me. Trust me to take you through it. And the bible. The motion honorable thing that woman to do was give birth to a male child but sometimes they by design they were not pregnant with a male chow. But we're female child but that woman was still had the assignment the child nine months and your birth to that child and raise sometimes in life will give an assignments that we didn't necessarily choose because wind chills another time. We wanted to do the honorable..
Growing Up In Style: "Patterns of the Past" by Susan Choi
"I'm here to introduce a series of original essays titled growing up in style writers on discovering fashion in america in this one the novelist susan choi author of the national book award winning novel trust. Exercises writes about her love of fabric patterns as a child in south bend indiana here susan reading her essay patterns of the past. I hope you enjoy. Historians of fashion seem to agree that by the time i was born in nineteen sixty nine. The son was already setting on the golden age of sewing. But there were few signs of this decline where i was growing up in south. Bend indiana my mother like so many mothers owned a sewing machine and knew how to use it how this come to be. I asked her recently. She gave a verbal shots over the phone from houston where she lives. Now if you read the directions and follow the pattern it would come out all right. She recalled she didn't even remember perhaps because they were as ordinary to her as grocery shopping. Our trips to the fabric store. Oh the fabric store. Even now decades later when google those words and look at the photos my heart thumps with desire to be clear. These are not photos. A fabric for sale online but photos of the interiors of actual physical places where one goes to touch bolts of fabric cards of rick rack buttons buttoned to a stiff cardboard backing or tumbling loose in a jar dispenser displays of threat arranged by color the spools curved surfaces gleaming like candy and every kind of beautiful ribbon in every color and texture and pattern the fabric store. Unlike the grocery store made me hungry the for. What exactly wasn't clear at the time. It was something much larger and much less defined than the outfits. My mother would make me from the items. We chose the fabrics and notions and trim but the outfits i loved with my whole heart and remember as clearly as if they still hung in my closet. The ruffled pinafore made from a white on white print of tiny flowers trimmed with red rick rack and finished with the application juicy. Strawberries on the bib. The shirtdress of multicolored cotton printed with patterns resemble embroidery the truly glamorous halter dress with a triple tiered skirt of pastel. Blue pastel pink. Pastel yellow says my mother now in her eighties on the other end of the phone. I lovingly describe her creations. She is impressed. I remember so while she has zero memory of sowing the any of these things though she does remember making herself address with extremely big sleeves. They were in style that year. She says she wore it a few times and decided the sleeves looked so stupid that she tore them off and wore. The dress sleeveless the fact that unlike me my mother is white exceedingly pale small boned blue eyed and with the cheekbones of film star both oppressed me throughout my childhood. And lay somehow outside of thought even to articulate it now feels uncomfortable but the facts were and remain that my pale blue eyed mother never matched my black haired brown eyed dark skinned self always far darker as a child than i ever get now because i was outside all summer. In an era before sunscreen in elementary school in indiana. I was cast as the lone indian in the thanksgiving play more. Generally i was constantly looked at especially or at least so it seemed to me when standing next to my mother. We didn't match. I harbored a fantasy fearful half escapist that i would turn out who've been adopted from some faraway land. Even my father who really was from a faraway land only explained my appearance without removing. My anomalous miss. He was to novelists himself ends that hunger. I felt at the fabric store. Larger than any one outfit could satisfy for the choosing of the fabric and the notions and the trim was always secondary to the choice of the pattern and the choice of the pattern was never i understand. Now about the pattern it south. It was about the girls the winsome the willowy and the overwhelmingly with token exceptions white girls who modeled the pinafores and shirt dresses and halters the tiered skirts and even the full body. Pajama like halloween costumes. On the outside of the rectangle envelopes housing the patterns. Remember those remember how they were often filed in boxes so that your fingers walked through them as they would later walk through. Lp's at the record store. When i think of patterns my mind says butterick. And i bet that the majority of the close my mother made me were from patterns put out not by simplicity or mccall's but by the butterick company which also produced vogue patterns having licensed the name from conde nast bruising those patterns of my past online where especially at sea they abound as if the golden age of sewing never ended. I have to wonder if i always chose butterick patterns on the strength of the package illustrations alone. The simplicity girls are oddly wooden and slightly mis proportioned the mccalls girls look like cartoons but the butterick girls still quicken my heart. I recognize my secret childhood. Self that lanky limb d- flush cheeked auburn-haired spirited white girl. I was deluded enough to imagine. I might be twin sister to anne of green gables. No less than two miniature area clock recognizing that hopeless longing to be entirely unlike myself delicately white as affirmed by one hundred percent of my world is a part of moving past it and perhaps even a part of reclaiming those buttons and bows those bullets at every possible fabric delicious all on their own after concluding online photos that it might well be the store of my childhood. I called stitch in time in south bend but it had only opened in nineteen ninety. Three there was a fabric store back then an ireland road by the old scottsdale mall. The woman who answered stitch in times phone told me. When i explained where i lived fashion fabrics that turned out had opened in nineteen seventy one just in time for my first toddler outfits and closed just under two decades later having withstood. Even the machine made onslaught of gloria vanderbilt. I know about that story. Because i worked there. The stitch in time woman went on. But before i could exclaim that maybe she'd helped me choose buttons or ribbons. She politely ended the call. An actual customer having arrived looking. I imagine for the modest but real transformation that a pattern and some fabric can provide.
Turns out that the universe is growing heaps faster than we expected
"The european space agency is a spacecraft is the gift that keeps on giving telescopes latest is measuring the parallel axes of over a billion stars. Paradoxes are tiny shifts in star's apparent positions which reveal their distances and the ones measured by guy are quoting astrophysicist. Joe bovi by far the most accurate and precise distance determinations and quotes now apart from just being cruel. Why is this important because included in the one point. Three billion star measurements are some special stars whose distances can be used to calculate farther cosmological distances. Meaning some big questions have been thrust into new more accurate lights namely the hubble tension the hubble tension refers to the expansion of the universe and these statistically significant discrepancies between calculations and measurements quoting quantum magazine. The cosmos is known ingredients and governing equations. Predict that it should currently be expanding at a rate of sixty seven kilometers per second per mega carsick meaning that we should see galaxies flying away from us sixty seven kilometers per second faster for each additional mega of distance yet actual measurements consistently overshoot. The mark galaxies receding too quickly. The discrepancy thrillingly suggests that some unknown quickening agent may be a foot in the cosmos and quotes. So what's going on well to make headway on figuring it out. Scientists have needed to reduce potential sources of error in the measurements especially when it comes to the distance to nearby stars. And thanks to guy. Oh we now have a ton of new exceptionally more. Accurate measurements to work with and astrophysicists are stoked papers are being turned out with new calculations at top speed. The how do these calculations work quoting again in broad strokes. The way to gauge cosmic expansion is to figure out how far away distant galaxies are. And how fast they're receding from us. The speed measurements are straightforward. Distances are hard. The most precise measurements rely on intricate cosmic distance ladders. The first wrung consists of standard candle stars in and around our own galaxy. That have well-defined luminosity. He's in which close enough to exhibit para lacks the only sure way to tell how far away things are without traveling there. Astronomers then compare the brightness of these standard candles with that of fainter ones in nearby galaxies to deduce their distances. That's the second rung of the ladder knowing the distances of these galaxies which are chosen because they contain rare bright stellar explosions called type one. A supernova allows cosmologists to gauge the relative distances of farther away galaxies that contain fainter type one a supernova 's the ratio of these far away galaxies speeds to their distances gives the cosmic rate and quote so the precision of the tax being that i rung of the ladder is of utmost importance and can change the whole calculation. If it's off and that is why astronomers are so stoked about this new data it really could hold the key to understanding the question of the hubble attention that they've been trying to crack for years
Google's Opt-in is a sham
"To opt in or not. How real is that opt in offer. You realize what you're opting in four. I'm jefferson graham. I've got some thoughts on this. You're listening to talking tech to plug the new pay app from google. Google is encouraging people to try it out and let google monitor your finances and purchases in exchange for personalize offers that it says you must opt in four so if google knows that you eat at burger king he could hit you up with specific burger king offers as opposed to generic restaurant deals in your neighborhood. But didn't know is that people are wary about giving google yet another license to track our every movement as it already does with maps youtube viewing searches and the like. It knows where you go what you watch who you spend time with what stores you drive to and more now. How do you feel about google tracking your purchases so in announcing the new program. Google said this paper civilization feature was opt in and offered a three month trial to give it a try quote at the end of three months. You can decide if you want to keep it on her off unquote. That's what google says and it sounds great right google's putting the decision in your reality check time. Most people won't even know what they signed up for the lettering as tiny is just another window of user agreements. That people's zip right through the turn on page is just one of many pages. Consumers will see when they download the new app and quickly as they always do to say yes to everything. The first thing. Google s is if could use your phone number as identification to introduce yourself to your friends on the new app which has been registered as part mo part quicken part apple pay of vehicle to tap and pay retail split pizzas with friends and monitor your finances so google needs identification is share with friends.

NFL Playoff Futures: Who will make the 2020 post-season?
"Wanted to talk about playoff odds and not not. Just who's gonna make the playoffs but also the nfc the nfc's a really weird place. The saints are plus three fifty to win this to in the nfc. None of us like the saints even are as good as they looked last week against tampa. There's still this unease with because breezes arm strength. It just makes me nervous. I'm starting to talk myself into the saints. Okay yeah okay so a couple of things number one. Smart people in july and august said wait until brady gets half a season under his belt and they're going to get better you know. No one cares. More about the details. And tom brady doesn't have a training. Camp does not as doesn't put pads on till till august fifteenth. He's gonna get better and better and better and so week one when when the bucks and the saints played. I threw that out. I said this this doesn't matter bracing to get better and better better. This was the closing the gap game for me. And then i didn't see that and obviously they were there whipped everywhere you know. Ali maher pet being out was a big thing with with with with people who started the game. But i think that this was bigger than than alley marquette quite frankly okay The the saints were able to get a four man rush the entire game. Are they able to pressure brady on half of his dropbacks when they had a four man rush. That's really good Since marcus davenport's come back in week five had the most pressures in football pressuring and football There's just something there. The problem at the beginning of the year was that lattimore and marcus williams were bad and those are two pretty good players and i think that you know a good pass rush. Ken console that those guys can get better and so with with brees. Listen there are. There are problems with the fact. You can't throw down the field. The offensive line is not as good as it has been in years hospice and matter with brees because he gets rid of the ball and a second. It's like peyton manning he doesn't need you know the the the best offensive line in the world and then lattimore who we were kind of dunking on because at one point he was giving almost a perfect passer rating. He owns mike evans. He own them. He is not given up a reception. Mike evans the last three games. They've played and so when if those guys play in the playoffs again. There's that match up. So i i don't. I'm feeling better about the saints. Now that i was two three weeks ago. Good coaching staff. I gary coaching staff. Yeah so the fear in this isn't just the saints but the fear is all right. What happens at their downtown in a playoff game. It's basically the lamar jackson corollary. How am i feeling down. Thirteen to three in the second quarter and they've just done a three and out. What were my emotions in that moment. That's my the saints because a breeze. I think that because they don't you don't think they're capable of a big play. Is that your fear if teams though like all right. They've got to air this out. They've got to quicken the pace and also it's amazing to me a cameras probably been the. Mvp think it's either him cook mahomes berry some order Okay i'm amazed at teams aren't just like all right. We're taking him out like bell. Check in his prime your. He got added as kids to the coaching staff and decided to throw a fight street. Drafts fail check All he would do me like chimeras not beating me. You can have everyone else on the saints. I'm not getting beat by that guy. I'm falling everywhere he goes. We're hitting him constantly. He's not beating me. Why don't teams do that with them. I don't get it okay. So first of all they have a of weapons. Thanks so she when michael. Thomas is healthy There's a lot they can do their you know. I think peter king early breakdown. His column this week about there was a play where the bucks dropped eight men into coverage and it was a weird play. They had their fullbacks put out wide and brees hit a random tight end. Adam traveling for a touchdown even throwing into eight men like that. There's just something their breezes still really really good so. I think it's a bit simplistic to say. Just take away kamara because they can do other stuff And they can. They can change their game plan so
Pandemic Economy is Making Revenues a Lot Better for Better.com
"Linked in just named better dot com number one on its list of top fifty startups, which means they're hiring like mad. The company is the sleeper success of the mortgage world. Undoubtedly, you've heard of its huge rival quicken loans, the largest mortgage lender in the US, but despite the eight billion dollars in loans, better dot com issued. Since March, you may not be familiar with the four year old company founder and CEO this. Shaw Garg tells a classic origin story in two, thousand, thirteen he and his wife were shopping for an apartment in New York City finding the right place at the right price was hard enough. Then they applied for a mortgage it was so much harder than it should be like horrendously bad guard told linked in writer Devon boundary. Their mortgage processor was so slow that they lost the apartment and get this. They weren't exactly slouches when it came to understanding Finance Guard was professionally managing billions of dollars in mortgage backed securities in his wife was a banker as battery reported guard thought if it's so bad for us, we'll how bad is it for everybody else? That's when he decided to start his own mortgage company one that would do things better. BETTER DOT COM launched publicly in two thousand sixteen like quicken loans better is an online firm that allows customers to apply for a mortgage and complete the entire process without speaking to a human being. Choose for the most part algorithms decide whether you get that loan or not, and what it will cost better. Dot Com sells the loans to institutional lenders a common mortgage industry practice. The big piece that guard changed industry-wide loan officers operate on a commission not. So at better, the company says its model freeze it up to match the right loan with a customer rather than incentivizing staffers to sell you the most expensive they can in addition customers say that commission fees as well as some other fees that guard wrung out of the process once launched better dot com did fairly well given the scads of competition out there, but it's the pandemic economy that. Shot better to prominence not to mention made it profitable as we've reported here before refinancings hit record highs after the federal. Reserve, dropped its interest rate to zero in March in an effort to save the sputtering economy additionally social distancing made online mortgages far more appealing to customers who previously may have walked into a bank or at least met with mortgage broker over coffee. The bottom line revenues were about one hundred, million dollars. Last year this year better expects to take in eight hundred million dollars in revenues. A newsletter called the information reported. The information also reported that better is trying to raise another one hundred million dollars in advance of a possible IPO. If it succeeds, the company will be valued at about four billion dollars. That's an insane amount of money for someone who used his apartment down payment to fund his business launch. That's right and his wife never bought that New York apartment. We're betting that they're glad they didn't, but and there's always a but right as high flying is this startup is it's a mosquito on the back of quicken loans and rocket mortgage both owned by the rocket companies together those two companies earned almost six and a half billion dollars in revenue just in the first half of this year both are household names unlike their smaller rival rocket companies went public in August in what the information says was the second largest IPO of the year, it rocketed to almost two billion dollars. With the economy faltering again though rocket share prices down ten dollars from its high of thirty dollars at the end of last month questions abound about how long the housing boom will last.
Dream Boy And The Poison Fans
"By the time that Emily Fangs reporting this story in March, the controversy around this actor at already gotten so hot that many of his fans refused to talk to a reporter others asked to speak in ways that would not reveal their true identities. NPR, by the way has very strict standard on this, you have to reasonably expect harm to your person or livelihood, and they met the standard there been retributive attacks and death threats. But we're GONNA start our story before all that back when Xiaojun was getting more endorsements than almost any idol in China is twenty eight tall and thin with Pale skin big eyes and understand the role he played in Chinese pop culture. You can look to the TV ads that were scripted with his image in mind. Mike Emily showed me this ad for Esti Lipstick So it starts in this. Hotel lobby most is really warm. Golden Sojourn appears the top of the staircase. He looks down and sees one beautiful woman in the crowd. She looks quite unsure of herself. He, sees this woman. And he can tell you quickens his steps who walks down the staircase briskly and it looks like he's about to approach her. But instead he grabbed golden balloon and he sends it her way with a package attached. The balloon didn't inside is surprise and estee louder lipstick which puts on an all of a sudden. She has confidence she struts out and she takes position on stage in front of a microphone. And you sojourn the crowd, he begins to clap for her and everyone else begins to clap her. As the woman smiles. They're selling the image of him as someone who helps others and to as helper of beauty he's too good to be human. But he's always there helping others be their best selves. Really Shapes. Shenzhen's millions of fans. See Him looks very clean. Looks. Very decent. He looks very gentle. This is an we're calling by her initials is E. IMA passer. Yes life I have never seen someone look at it. Is. E is thirty years old married. and. She was about to become the mother when I talked to her. So she has not the typical style Jonathan? Savage John Fans are usually single women young teenagers, teenagers likely in middle school or high school is e says that. This kind of connector to her friends because they always have something to talk about show. Good looks. And also there is a another reason is because I feel when people are pursuing I'll say when they're Authorian cert- can kind of celebrity they must have fun something in the celebrity that way don't have our self. So is he describes herself as very frank, a very frank and outspoken person maybe even a little harsh and one of the things she ended these most in South Asia is his gentleness so that I feel that is something I want to learn from him because John is portrayed a sweet person. He also needs protection because that gentleness can be taken advantage of in his fans need to. Be the ones who stand up for him here is where China's Fan Culture and actually Asian Fan Culture in general it kind of veers away from even the most intense fan behavior in the West because a lot of fancy it as their job, even their responsibility, not just to admire their idol and to support him but to go so much further. So is he talks about how in these? Media groups, some of which will have hundreds of thousands of followers. Each there are something called a child Wa. So sopra topic, what's called Super Topic or Toha, and which some of the lead fans who devote hours a day to organizing this fans structure, we'll give orders to. Fans beneath them about what they need to achieve for that day. So today, we're all going to click on this one music video and watch it or today we're all going to buy products from this brand because they've signed an endorsement deal with children. Say the broadcaster from the Child Watt who say today when you to do this today when you to do that so you remember that Estee Lauder ad for lipstick according to Chinese media estee Lauder Botox, pitched show in two thousand eighteen sold out not only within the first day of their release but within the first. Hour. Totalling almost six million dollars in sales, and then back on the fan club sites, fans would celebrate what they saw as their success. It's IMMA fine. You want to support your idol by making here she gets the most brand endorsements and makes the most money on behalf of these companies. I get I get what Xiaojun gets out of this he gets. And success money what fans get out of making him. So successful by being particularly influential fan of Superfan you also get a lot of power and influence the majority of his fans are going to be. Young girls in their middle school or high school years. So in real life, they're not going to have a lot of power in Chinese society. But by being a part of this fan group, you become part of this very powerful commercial
Speech Processing for Disease - Dr Ami Moyal, President, Afeka Tel Aviv College of Engineering
"Center for Language Processing Quick Example was founded by eleven years ago after I spent fifteen years in the high tech industry as a research engineer vice-president technology, and CEO. Since then the centre has grown to be the largest research. Sentiment is bound helpless on Applied Research Field With project completed for the defense industry high companies, the medical field and more. Most recently, the language processing has been researching the use of speech processing, not sufficient diligence algorithms for providing a quicken, readily available three diagnostic assessment of Covid, nineteen infection we belden need for human intervention. When it comes to a rapidly spreading virus such as covid nineteen with millions of potential carriers Goud the global population. It is essential die identified like carry-ons virus at the early stages confection in order to private as testing efforts and break the chain of mission while it's great to hear there's just so much going on in Israel in the in the research failed, and specifically around language processing, you guys are really applying it to one of the most worthy and needed causes at the moment, the pre diagnosis of covid nineteen. Completely, understand the need to prioritize testing efforts. Tests are in short supply so you really do have to get to the right people i. I'm rendered. There was some talk around whether it was possible to use voice for the diagnosis of Kavita. This is a couple of months ago. Remember I'm on the on the what's that groups and things? I'm part of people were skeptical that it was actually possible. So tell us. Is it actually possible to use voice files, voice recording speech even coughs and non? Verbal. nonverbal recordings of of a human voice to be able to diagnose covid nineteen. That is precisely what our current research is into. After consulting with physicians specializing oratory disease and ear nose and throat, as well as with doctors conflict within coronavirus patients, we learned that among the earliest symptoms. So covid nineteen. Vocal the. And throat infection. These affect human localization patterns. We are modeling samples of speech coughing and breathing from both symptomatic and Azima the night to carry us to compare with models taken from healthy subjects. AUTOMO-. We are also modeling vocalisations subject the tested negative for covid nineteen yet are exhibiting similar symptoms shot such as those infected by the common flu. DC will a loaded the commodity who differentiate between someone who is likely a carrier and someone? Well. That makes perfect sense I mean obviously someone who is infected and is showing symptoms is going to sound different to someone who is isn't so I completely understand how you can train these machine learning models to recognize the difference I'm fascinated by the ability to be able to distinguish between different diseases though because I would imagine the you know if you have one type of disease or another, the reaction of your body would largely be the same the produce flam in the lungs which would come up in a fatal throw in different ways I'll be really really interested to know what the difference is.

Sen. Bernie Sanders calls for tax on billionaires' gains during the pandemic
"A major milestone for the Nasdaq on Thursday the index briefly crossed eleven thousand for the first time ever the Nasdaq them closed out the day a hair below that eleven km milestone, a record high that's the indexes six record close in. So. Far, the Nasdaq is clocked a record close thirty one times in twenty twenty. It's remarkable run for the and exit especially considering what a hit like the rest of the stock packet back in. March. Clearly, the Nasdaq is come back with ferocity it's gained about twenty three percents alone the S. and P. Five hundred and the Dow Jones indices have each clocked day winning streak and the S&P is now near percentage points away from his own twenty twenty. Of course, record highs in the marketplace seem at odds with the troubles were seeing a real economy small and medium businesses are shuttered big retailers bankrupt individuals and entrepreneurs are anxiously awaiting more government relief according to some as you'll hear, the disconnect is in part due to the Federal Reserve's unprecedented actions throughout the pandemic. And investor competent that the Fed will continue to support the markets. One former presidential candidate is calling for billionaires to step up to the real economy. Here's duckie quick Senator Bernie Sanders he is now. Calling for a crackdown on billionaires, this is what he tweeted last night. I will be introducing legislation tomorrow meaning today to tax the obscene wealth gains billionaires have made during the public health crisis. The senator tweeted a thread explaining his proposal saying while over thirty million. Americans. Have seen their six hundred dollars a week and unemployment benefits. Expire emergency actions taken by the Federal Reserve to prop up the stock market have meant that four hundred, sixty, seven billionaires saw their wealth go up by over seven hundred and thirty billion dollars since the pandemic began while Amazon is denying paid sick leave hazard pay personal protective equipment to four, hundred, fifty, thousand of its Workers Jeff Bezos has increased his wealth by over seventy billion dollars. Amazon shares are up more than seventy percent year to date. You can see this morning down by about twelve dollars. Senator Sanders also calls out Walmart's Walton family. Tesla's Elon Musk and facebook's mark Zuckerberg for making billions of dollars during the pandemic, and then trying to juxtapose that with what they've done for some of the workers along the way he then said by taxing sixty percent of the wealth gains made by just four, hundred, sixty, seven billionaires. During this pandemic, we could guarantee has a right for an entire year and billionaires would still be able to pocket over three hundred, ten billion dollars gains during the worst downturn since the Great Depression.

It seems like it's called the new era of cyber war. It seems like there's been a huge turn in sort of state-sponsored. Particularly Russians sponsored cyber attacks. How did you come onto that notion? How did you begin reading this book I'm I'm very curious how you see. See that turn happening well. In late twenty sixteen, my former colleague Kim Zetter she had been the one who really covered state sponsored hacking in cyber war stuff, but she left wired, and this was also at the time. When you know Russian hackers were meddling in the US election, they'd hacked the democratic. National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Clinton Campaign, so my editors were really primes on face, mantra hacking all of a sudden, but what they? They really what they told me they wanted was a actually like a big takeover of the whole magazine. All about cyber war, but cyber war to me is different than those kinds of espionage election, meddling tactics so I went looking for no real cyber war story, which means to me like a actual disruptive cyber attacks, and as I looked around. It seemed like the place where that was really happening was in Ukraine not really in the US in fact maybe. Maybe what was happening in? Ukraine seemed to me like it was in some ways, the only real full blown cyber war that was actually occurring where Russian hackers were not just attacking the election which they had done, they tried this spoof the results of a presidential election, but they had also attacks media and destroyed their computers. They had attacked government agencies and tried to like destroy entire networks, and then they had turned off the power for the first time. In December of two thousand, fifteen, the the first actual blackout triggered by hackers, and just as I was look into this happened again the the effect, the seem hacker group caused a blackout this time in the capital of Kiev so I wince looking in Ukraine for this cyber war story that. Turned into a cover story for wired that kind of gave editors what they wanted, but then also kept unfolding This cyber war kept growing in scope and scale and. The original story written for wired was kind of about the fact that you could look to Ukraine to see the future of cyber war that will what was happening. There might soon spread to the rest of the world. And that is actually what happens to like just after we publish that cover story to same hackers released this climactic terrible cyber attack in Ukraine. Called Not Petiot that spread beyond Ukrainians became the worst cyberattack history cost ten billion dollars, so when that happened, that was when I saw that there was potential to do a book about this that it was not just a kind of case study about Ukraine or even kind of predictive story, but a an actual full story arc about this one group that had carried out the what I would say was not only the first. First Real Cyber War, but the worst cyberattack in history and the you know I wanted to capture the the Ark of that story in the effects, the real experience of cyber war. Yeah, so the group is called sand worm in this is just one of the the sort of opening arcs of the book is how they've come. They come to be named this because references and code walk people through just like it's so. relatable that like even these hackers are using using this language that leads them recalled Sandwich Tell people about it. So when I started to look into the origins of this group after that second blackout attack I I found that this this company called eyesight partners which have been acquired by fire I I, said partners was the first to find these hackers in twenty, fourteen, basically using fishing in kind of typical espionage tactics, plant malware in the networks of typical Russian hacking targets like groups across Eastern, Europe and NATO in a look like what they were doing was just kind of typical espionage. They were planning. This by wear calls lack energy buds will first of all they could see that they were rushing, because they had this server that they were using to administer some of these attacks and they. They left the server, so anybody could look at it in. There was a kind of Russian language to file for how to use black energy on the service, so these guys seem like they were rushing, but even more interesting in some ways. was that they to track each victim each instance of black energy? This malware has little campaign code in each campaign was a reference to the science fiction novel Dune and you know so like one of them was something about Iraq is, and then one of them is about the sutter cars, these like imperial soldiers in in that SCI FI universe so I said partners named this group sand worm, because well just because it's a cool. Name associated with doing, but it turned out to me. It became this very powerful because a sandwich miss this monster that lies beneath the surface, and occasionally arises from underground to do terribly destructive things. partners didn't know that at the time, they they soon afterward realized what sand. was doing was not just espionage, but they were actually doing reconnaissance for disruptive cyberattacks. They were also hacking power grids. They were planning black energy, not only in the European Eastern European targets in the US power grid networks as well. The Ultimately Syndrome was the first twenty fifteen to cross that line in use black energy as the first step in a multi step attack that led to a blackout. So this was not just espionage really was kind of like you know this monster that rises from under the ground to do terrible acts of mass destruction that came to pass so one of the things that comes up over in the book. Is this growing sense of dread from security researchers and analysts? Oh this is an imminent threat to the united. States just Ukraine, but like this is happening here and then there's a sense that the United States actually open the door to this kind of warfare with stuxnet. which was an attack on Iran? How how did those connect for you that it seemed like there's a new rule of engagement new set of rules of engagement for cyber warfare that actually the United States implicitly created with with stuxnet by attacking Iran. Yeah, I mean I tried to highlight. Clearly sand worm are the real bad guys in the story, they are the actual hacker group that did these terribly reckless destructive attacks that actually in some cases put people's lives at risk, the kind of in some parts of the story they actually shutdown medical record systems and I. Think may have cost people's lives with cyber attacks today they are the actual antagonist here, but I also want to highlight the ways that the US government is is partially responsible for the state of Cyber War, and there are a few ways that that's true. I The US! Open the Pandora's box of cyber war with stuxnet. This piece of now where that. That was used to destroy Iranian nuclear enrichment centrifuges that was the first piece of our that actually have caused that physical disruption destruction, and we now see Sandra doing the same thing in Ukraine. In in fact, in some ways around the world, also the the US hordes, these kind of zero day, secret hacking techniques, some of which were stolen and leaked and used by sand worm, but then I think the in fact, the biggest way that I tried to highlight that the US is responsible or complicit or negligent. Here is that we did not call allows what Santorum was doing in Ukraine and say to Russia. We know what you're doing. This is unacceptable. Nobody should be turning out the lights. Two civilians with cyber attacks. There wasn't a message like that I. mean the Obama White House sent a message to Russia over this kind of cyber hotline to say your election hacking is not okay. We see what you're doing and we want you to stop, but they said nothing about a tube blackout attacks in Ukraine, and that was kind of implicit signal to Russia. They could keep. Keep escalating, and even as all the cyber security, researchers and Ukrainians were warning that what was happening to Ukraine, would soon spread to the rest of the world, the US government ignore this both Obama, and then the trump administration until that prediction came to pass and a sand worm cyberattack did spread to the rest of the world, and it was too late, and we all suffered globally as a result, so let's talk about patch it. WAS CATASTROPHIC IN SCOPE, right? It took out the mayor shipping line, which is a massive business. It took out some hospitals in UK like it was huge in scope. I don't think people really put it all together. Talk about how it started and how big it grew. Yeah, so not too was kind of like big apotheosis sandwich, where all of these predictions of the terribly destructive things they were doing to the rest of the world came to pass but it did it started in Ukraine. They hijacked this. The the software updates of this accounting software called me doc that is basically used by everybody in Ukraine. The quicken turbo tax of Ukraine. If you do business in Ukraine, you have to have this installed, so sanborn hijack the updates of that news to push out this worm to thousands of victims mostly in Ukraine, but it was a worm, so it's spread the mmediately end quickly kind of carpet bombs. The entire Ukrainian Internet's every computer at spread to would encrypt permanently. You could not recover the computer, so it very quickly took down pretty much every. Every Ukrainian government agency twenty two banks multiple airports for hospitals in Ukraine that I. could count and in each of these cases. What is eight took them down. I mean it destroyed essentially all of their computers, which requires sometimes weeks or months to recover from, but then as you know, this is a worm that does not respect national borders. So even though it was, it seemed to be an attack intended to disrupt Ukraine. It immediately spread beyond Ukraine's borders. Borders to everybody who had this accounting software installed? That was doing business in Ukraine and some people who didn't so that includes Maersk. The world's largest shipping firm and Fedex and Mondelez, which owns cadbury, NABISCO and ranking manufacturing firm that makes tylenol in Merck. The Pharmaceutical Company in New Jersey on each of these companies lost hundreds of millions of dollars. The scale of this is kind of difficult to capture but I in the book I tried to. To I focused in part Maersk because it is just a good company to look at because you can. They had this gigantic global physical machine that is they have seventy six ports around the world that they own as well as these massive ships that have tens of thousands of shipping containers on them. And I told the story of how on this day seventeen of their terminals of were entirely paralyzed by this attack with ships arriving with just. Piles of containers on them. Nobody could unload. Nobody knew what was inside of nobody knew how to load or unload them with around the world of seventeen terminals, thousands of trucks, Semitrailers, carrying containers were lining up in Lyons miles long because the gates that were kind of checkpoints to check in the these trucks to drop something off or pick it up. They were paralyzed as well. This was a fiasco on a global scale is responsible for a fifth of the world's lable shipping capacity. They were truly just a rendered brain dead by this attack, but yeah displayed out at all of these different victims MERC had to borrow their own each vaccine from the Center for Disease Control because they're manufacturing. Manufacturing was disrupted by this, and it ultimately spread to a company called nuance, nate speech to text software. They have a service that does this for hospitals across the US to dozens of our possibly hundreds of American hospitals at this backlog of transcriptions to medical records that were lost because of this, and that resulted in patients, being do for surgeries or transfers, other hospitals in nobody knew their medical records were updated. I mean this was scale where hundreds of hospitals each of which has thousands of patients missing changes the medical records. We don't know what the effects of that work, but very well could've actually harmed people's health. Our lives I mean the scale of not petty is very difficult to. Get your mind around, but we do know that you know monetarily cost ten billion dollars, which is by far the biggest number we've ever seen, but it also had this this kind of harder to quantify toll on people's lives, so it it you know you read about it at length and wired. Obviously these companies go down of ripples in mainstream sort of general press, but I don't feel like people really not like Oh. This Russian group called San Worms sponsored by the Russian government. Unleash this attack in it caused this cascading effect of failure and disaster cost in that because we know what we can attribute it to the government, our government. I don't feel like that connection got made for people. What is the gap between other as a hack and Oh, this is actually a type of warfare engagement, because that that connection seems very tenuous. I think for a lot of people. Even as sort of the more general mainstream press covers this stuff. Yeah, you know. I don't think that that's is just like the nature of. Of Cyber War I think that was a failing that that lack of connection is a failing on our government's parts, and on you could say even on the part of some of these victims like these large companies I mean I at the time did not pitch it happened. I was fully on the trail of standard within days. I was talking to cyber security researchers who? Who had piece together? Some of the forensics to show the not petiot was Sandra that it was a Russian state-sponsored attack in yet none of those companies that I mentioned mercker Mondelez or Maersk or Fedex, or any of them wanted to say the Russia had done this to them and know governments were talking about either like the Ukrainian government was. They're always willing to point. Point the finger at Russia, but the US government was not, and you know that to me seemed to be just kind of I mean I felt like I was being gas. Let's at that point. I had watched Russia due to Ukraine for a long time at that point tonight. I sort of understood that NATO in the West. We had this kind of cruel logic that. Ukraine is not us. Russia can do what it likes to Ukraine because they're not NATO not e you. They are Russia's sphere of influence or something I think that that's very wrongheaded, but at least it made sense. You know to have that that viewpoints, but now this attack had spread from Ukraine to hit American soil American companies in many cases and yet still the US government was saying nothing I just thought this was bizarre and you know so i. For months I was like. Trying to get any of these companies to tell the story of of their experiences, not Peta I was trying to figure out why the US government wasn't talking about the fact that this was a Russian cyberattack and ultimately I. Think it was I. think it was kind of I know partly disorganization negligence. I think it may have something to do with the fact that the. The? Trump administration doesn't like talking about Russian hackers for obvious reasons, but eight months after it took eight months ultimately for the US government to finally say not that it was a was Russia it was the worst cyberattack in history, and then a month later. The White House impose consequences in put new sanctions on Russia and response, but it took nine months and more importantly it took. Multiple years this without was the first time this was twenty eighteen, and the Russian cyber war in Ukraine had started around the fall of Twenty fifteen, so that's just incredible span of negligence when the US government said nothing about these escalating unfolding. Acts, of Cyber Award that there should have been unacceptable from the very beginning I mean these are the kind of quintessential acts of state sponsored cyber attacks on civilians, trying out the lights. You know that's the kind of thing that I believe that the US government should have called out and drawn a red line across at the very beginning took ears, so I do think it was a big failing. Of of diplomacy, it just seemed like that part of the problem, and this is kind of an expression is it's so hard to describe like if the Russian government sent fighter jets to America and live their support. Okay, like everyone understood, you can see it. You can understand what happened there. In the you know, there's like a however many decades of movies about how to fight that war. This is a bunch of people in a room typing. Like it there's just an element of this where the dangerous Oh federal where the attack is invisible, and while the effects might be very very tangible, the causes are still sort of mysterious people so. My question is who is sandwich. What what do we know about them? Where do they work? What are they like? Do we have a sense of how this operation actually operates? In some ways the the biggest challenge of reporting this book, and I spent essentially the third act of the book, the last third of the reporting of the book, trying to answer the question of who is in worm, who are these people? Where are they located? What motivates them and I guess to partially spoil the ending here. They are a unit of the year you. They are a part of Russia's military intelligence agency, which is responsible for you know, this is not a coincidence. They are responsible for election meddling responsible for the attempted assassination of You. chemical weapons in the United Kingdom they're responsible for the downing of a seventeen as commercial passenger jet over Ukraine were three hundred innocent people died on the G. R.. You are this incredibly reckless callous out military intelligence agency, but they act like kind of almost just cut through mercenaries around the world. Doing Russia's bidding in ways that are very scary, so I threw essentially like a combination of excellent work of a bunch of security researchers who I was speaking to combined with some confirmation from US intelligence agencies, and then ultimately some other clues from the investigation of Robert Muller into meddling all these things combined created the trail that led to one group within the JERE. You that were you know I? Eventually had some names and faces even address of this this group, and all that was actually only finally fully confirms After the book came out Justin in recent months when the White House finally actually was the State Department's. End as well as the UK on Australian and other governments together finally said yes, sand worm is in fact that this unit of the year you so this theory that I developed in positive near the end of the book was finally basically confirmed by governments just in recent months. So one thing that strikes me at that is I, think of the Russian military things. Gru is being foreboding being obviously, they're very very good at this other a buttoned up in then they have like a incredible social media presence that kind of POPs up throughout the book that distracts from what doing. They set up Gucci for two point Oh when they were doing the DNC hacks that fed to wikileaks in the. That account insisted it was just guy. They set up the shadow brokers which was. I read. It is just like your some goof-balls like they wanted to seem a lot dumber and a lot smaller than they were. They were very effective at it to people I. Talk About those that strategy, and then I guess my question have is like a re better at seeing that strategy for what it is well. You make a really interesting point. The uses these false flags like throughout their recent history that we I should say we don't know that they were responsible for shadow brokers. In fact, nobody knows who shot a brokers. The shadow brokers truly are, and they are in some ways the biggest mystery in this whole story, this one group that hacked the NSA apparently and leaked a bunch of their zero day hacking techniques, or maybe they were even say insiders. We still don't know the answer to that question, but the other other incidents you mentioned. That are you are responsible for this Guja for two point zero fake hacktivists leaked a bunch of the Clinton documents. They're responsible for other false flags like they at one point to call themselves the Cyber Caliphate pretended to be Isis. They've a pretended to be like patriotic pro. Russian Ukrainians at some point they they're always like wearing different masks ends. They're very deceptive. in the a later chapter of the book, some of the biggest one of the biggest attacks they. They did was this attack on the twenty thousand Olympics where they not only wore a false mask, but they actually had layers of false flags where as cyber security researchers W. This melwert was used to destroy the entire back end of the two thousand eighteen winter Olympics. Just as the opening ceremony began, this was a catastrophic events. The aware had all of these fake clues made look like it was Chinese or North Korean or maybe Russian. Nobody could tell it was like. It was this kind of confusion bomb almost designed to to just make researchers throw up their hands. Give up on attributing mallards. Any particular actor was only through some amazing detective work by some of the analysts that I spoke to the able to cut through those false flags identify that sand was behind this essentially, but yeah, it's it is a one very real characteristic of the jury you that they are almost they seem to almost take pleasure or like be showing off their deception capabilities to and their evolving those capabilities they are getting more deceptive over time as fake gets more, destructive aggressive. Advertising content when I say Utopia what comes to mind? Birds Chirping lush natural beauty dialed up and vibrant technicolor. Is it within reach. Your world. World. explained. You are an essential part of the Pathak social body. Everybody in that place. Everybody happy now. While the peacock original series brave new world takes place in a scientific futuristic utopia. The concept is nothing new Sir Thomas more. I introduced the theory five hundred years ago, but we keep looking for that community identity stability of aldous. Huxley's Utopia and not finding it. Americans are the unhappiest they've been in decades and we're increasingly lonely. whereas in a utopia, everyone belongs to everyone else. In nineteen, forty-three, the psychologist Abraham Maslov developed a theory of Yoga. One that allows total self determination in basic terms. maslow's theory says that in a utopia we decide for ourselves what we need and how we're going to get it in Huxley's Utopia. Citizens always get what they want and don't want what they can't get. Sounds pretty good right then. Why can't we make it happen?

This is bowes I'm a podcast or By, I, a Gamer Five G. is changing the gaming world in really unexpected exciting ways with the help of Samsung Five G. I'm getting a peek at how gaming is getting faster smoother and can even improve our lives well. Let's dish some secrets about the future gaming. Dr Jean Mechanical Direct Route Game Research and development at the Institute of the future. She's also a bestselling author game inventor. She's optimistic about gaming impact on us and our minds. The biggest thing that we've seen in research is that. We need to be able to game in the moment wherever we are. So, what happens when when you're playing when your favorite games is that it fires up than her logical pathways, it's kind of like having a of caffeine and a pet dog from your favorite coach, and you've just meditated for an hour. This emotional neurological power up is called the game transfer effect, and that effect is heightened when using five. Five G. The game transfer fact requires you to be totally immersed in the game, so you want to have the most amazing graphics and the most immersive audio and with five G. to do that anywhere anytime, be one of the first to harness the game transfer effect with Samsung Galaxy Five G. now available on Galaxy, S Twenty-five g and a seventy one five G. feels good to be I with Samsung. I love to play the game of like. Imagine the meeting and imagine that the one set of meeting which is like the actual hackers finding the vulnerabilities figuring out how to jump from Windows, eight computer to some sort of physical hardware controller that actually runs like that. That's a very hard problem in and of itself, and then the other meeting. They're like what we're GONNA do is claim to be a guy called Gucci for two point, Oh and like those are. Not Connected Right, but the way they throughout the book the way they execute East campaigns they're deeply connected, and that seems like not only just a new kind of warfare, and you kind of craft, but some just consistently seems to work in surprising ways like the tech press is GonNa. Be Like Gucci. I says this and we're. There's never that next step of also we think it's Russian government, and that seems like first of all I'm dying. I imagine the meeting right. I would love to be a fly on the wall of the meeting where they decide what their twitter name is going to be today. I'm very curious how they evolve those attacks in such a way that it just seems to be more and more effective time. Yeah, I mean. I also love to have been those meetings in. It's my one kind of regret in this book that I never actually got. Interviews, it's almost an impossible thing to do. They liked find defectors from the R., you or something. He will tell those stories at a knock it murdered I mean. It's kind of a possible, but but. In some cases? I think your earlier points. They almost seem kind of bumbling in these things they do them in a very improvisational way. for two point Oh seemed almost like it was a justice thing they invented on the spot, tried to cover up some of the the accidental ups like they had left russian-language formatting errors in the documents that they had leaked from the DNC, so they admitted this guy who appeared the next day and started. Talking about being a Romanian. Friends as motherboard Lorenza, Franceschi decry he started this conversation. Align with with Guja for two point, oh basically proved at the guy could not actually properly speak Romanian. BE Russian speaker. In fact, it was. It was almost comical at the same time. They're using very sophisticated hacking techniques doing destructive attacks on a massive scale, but they're also. They seem like they're kind of making it up as they go along. They do things that don't actually seem very kind of strategically smart. They kind of seem like they're trying to impress their boss for the day. Sometimes with just like some sometimes, it's just seems like the Jere. You wakes up in asks themselves. Like what can we blow up today? Rather than thinking like? How can we accomplish the greater strategic objectives of the Russian Federation? So they are fascinating in that way and very stringent colorful group. That's I think one of the biggest questions I have here is. We spend a lot of time trying to imagine what flat and Mirror Putin wants. You know when he grows up, but it. None of this seems targeted like what is the goal for Russia to disrupt the Winter Olympics right like. Is there a purpose to that? Is that just a strike fear? Is it just to? EXPAND THAT SUV influenced. Is it just to say we have the capability furious is there? has there ever really been the stated goal for this kind of cyber warfare? That one is particularly mystifying. I mean you can imagine why Russia would want to attack the Olympics. They were banned from the two thousand Eighteen Olympics doping, but then you would think that they might want to attack the Olympics and send a message maybe like eight deniable message a message that you know if you continue to ban us. We're GONNA. Continue to attack you like like any terrorists would do, but instead they attacked the winter. Olympics in this way, that really seemed like they were trying not to get caught, and instead like make it look like the was Russia North Korea? And then you have to like what is the point of that was? The could kind of. Sit there in Moscow and kind of like rub their hands together in gleefully. Watch this chaos unfolds. It almost really does seem like it was petty vindictive thing that they just for their own emotional needs wanted to make sure that nobody could enjoy the Olympics if they were not going to enjoy them I that was, but that one is i. think outlier in some ways for the most part you can kind of see. The Russia is advancing. The G. R. You that sand worm is advancing something that does generally make sense which is that. In Ukraine for instance, they're trying to make Ukraine look like a failed state. They're trying to make Ukrainians. Lose faith in their security. Services are trying to prevent investors globally from funneling money into Ukraine trying to create a kind of frozen conflict, as we say in Ukraine where there's this constant perpetual state of degradation. They're not trying to conquer the country, but they're trying to create a kind of permanent war in Ukraine and would cyber war. You can do that beyond the traditional front end. It is in some ways the same kind of tactic that they used in other places like the US which. which here we saw more than influence operation that they were hacking leaking organizations like democratic campaign organizations and anti doping organizations to kind of so confusion to embarrass on their targets. They're trying to influence like the international audiences opinion these people, but in Ukraine, it is in some ways, just a different kind of influence operation where they're trying to influence the world's view of Ukraine. Influence Ukrainians view of their themselves under government to make them feel like they are in a war zone even when their kid hundreds of miles from the actual fighting. That's happening on the eastern fronts in the eastern region of. Of Ukraine so in a book you you you go to Kiev. You spent time in Ukraine. Is there a sense in that country that while sometimes light goes out sometimes our TV stations. Their computers don't boot anymore. Because they got rewritten, the Hydros got Zeros like. Is there a sense that this is happening? Is there a sense the defy back is there does Microsoft deploy you know dozens of engineers to to help fight back. How does that play out on the ground there? Yeah, I mean to be fair. Ukrainians are very stoic about these things and regular. Ukrainian citizens were not bothered by you know. Know a short blackout. They didn't particularly care you know. This blackout was the first ever. Hacker induced blackout in history but Ukrainian cyber security. People were very unnerved by this end, people in these actual utilities were traumatized I mean these attacks were truly like relentless sins very kind of scary for the actual operators at the controls I mean in the first blackout attack. These poor operators Ukrainian control room in western Ukraine they were locked out of their computers, and they had to watch their own mouse cursor. Click through circuit breakers, turning off the power in front of them I. Mean They watched it happen? At these kind of Phantom hands to control of their mouse movements, so they took this very very seriously, but yet Ukrainians as a whole I mean they have seen a lot. They are going through an actual physical war. They've seen the seizure of Crimea and the invasion of the east of the country. You know the the date hits. A Ukrainian general was assassinated with a car bomb in the middle of Kiev, so they have a lot of problems, and I'm not sure that cyber war is one of the top of their minds, but not patio I. Did, actually reach Ukrainians normal. Ukrainian civilians to it. It shook them as well. I talked to two regular Ukrainians. who found that they couldn't swipe into the Kiev Metro. They couldn't use their credit card at the grocery store. All the ATM's were down The Postal Service was taken out for every computer that the postal service had was taken out for more than a month. I mean these things really did affect people's lives, but it kind of. A until that kind of climactic worm. Not Patio for I think for this to really reach home for Ukrainians. who have kind of seen so much. How do you fight back? I, mean I one of things that struck me as I was reading. The book is so many of the people you talked to people who are identifying the threat. They're actually private companies. Eyesight was the first even detect it. they are contractors to intelligence agencies the military in some cases, but they're not necessarily the government right like it's not necessarily Microsoft. Who has to issue the patches from the software not necessarily GE which makes simplicity, which is the big industrial controls talk about a lot. How does all that come together into a defense because that seems like harder problem of coordination? Yeah, I mean defense in Cyber. Security is in an eternal problem. It's incredibly complicated, and when you have a really sophisticated determined adversary, it know they will win eventually ends I. think that they're absolutely lessons for defense in this book about you know. Maybe you need to really really think about software updates for instance like the kind that were hijacked to a with this medoc accounting software. As a vector for terrible cyber-attacks. Imagine that like. Any of your insecure apps that have kind of updates can be become a a piece of Malware, really unique to signature networks need to think about patching on. There are just an endless kind of checklist of things to every organization needs to do to protect themselves so. In some ways that just like a Sisyphean task and I don't. I don't try to answer that question in the book because it's too big, and it's kind of boring as well, but what I do really hammer on is the thing that the government's really could've done here. which is to try to establish norms tried to control attackers through diplomacy through kind of disciplinary action through things like kind of Geneva Convention for Cyber War if. If you think about a kind of analogy to say like chemical weapons, we could just try to give everyone in the world a gas mask that they have to carry around with them at all times, or we could create a Geneva. Convention norm that chemical weapons should not be used in if they are than crime, and you get pulled in front of the Hague. Hague and we've done the ladder and I think that in some ways should be part of the the answer to cyber war as well we need to establish norms and make countries like Russia or like organizations like the G. Are you understand that there will be consequences for these kinds of attacks, even when the victim is not the US or NATO or the? The EU and I think we're only just starting to think about that. One of the questions I had as reading is it seems like a very clear red line for almost everyone you talk to is attacks on the power grid right? That is just unacceptable. You should not do it if you do it. You've crossed a line and there should be some consequence. Is, that clear to governments. Is that something that our government says? It's something that the says it has been established. It seems like it's it's the conventional wisdom wants to salvage, but I'm not unclear whether that is actually the line that exists. It definitely has not been established, and when I kind of did these I managed to get sort of interviews with the top cyber security officials in the Obama ends trump administration Jay Michael Daniel was the cyber. Cyber Coordinator for the administration was the kind of cyber coordinator boss in the The Homeland Security Adviser for trump and both of them when I asked him about like wiped. Why didn't you know to put it bluntly like? Why didn't you respond? When Russia caused blackouts in Ukraine? Both of them essentially said well. You know that's not actually the rule that we want to set. We want to be able to cause blackouts in our adversaries networks. In their power grids when we are in a war situation or when we believe it's in our national interest, so you know that's the thing about these cyber war capabilities. This is part of the problem that every country. Absolutely the US among them isn't really interested in controlling these weapons, because we in this kind of Lord of the rings fashion, we are drawn to them to like we want to maintain the ability to use those weapons ourselves and nobody wants to throw this ring in the fires, of Mount Doom. We all wanted maintain the ring and imagine that we can use it for good in out. So that's why neither administration called that Russia for doing this because they want that power to. Make the comparison to to nuclear weapons but Negotiated drawdown and treaties with Russia in the past we count warheads where aware that the United States stockpiles can destroy the world. Fifty Times over today maybe tomorrow one hundred hundred like what we have a sense of the the measure of force that we can. Put on the world when it comes to nuclear weapons, there's a sense that Oh, we should never use these right like we have them as a deterrent, but we've gained out that actually leads to his mutually assured destruction like there's an entire body of academics. There's entire body of researchers. Entire body is got scenario planning with that kind of weapon. Does that same thing exist for for cyber weapons. There are absolutely. Know community is of academics. Policymakers who are thinking about this stuff now, but I don't think it's kind of gotten through to actual government decision. that. There needs to be kind of cyber deterrence in how that would work. In in the comparison to nuclear weapons is like instructive, but not exactly helpful. In fact, it's kind of counter-productive because we cannot deter cyber-attacks with other cyber-attacks i. don't think that's GonNa work in part because we haven't even tried to establish it yet. There are no kind of rules or read lines, but then I think more importantly. Everybody thinks that they can get away with cyberattacks that they can. They're going to create a false flag. That's clever enough that that when they blow up a power grid, they can blame their neighbor instead, so they think they're. They're gonNA. Get Away with it, and that causes them to do it anyway. A not fear the kind of assured destruction so I think that the the right response, the way to to deter cyber attacks is not with the promise of a cyber attack in return. It's with all the other kind of tools we have, and they've been used sometimes, but but they were not in the case of Sand Werman. Those tools include like sanctions which came far too late in the story indictments of hackers. In some cases, we still haven't really seen syndrome. Hackers indicted for the things that they did in Ukraine or or even not petty. And then ultimately just kind of messaging like calling out naming and shaming bad actors, and that has happened to some degree with Sandra, but in some cases there have still been massive failures there there has still been no public attribution of the Sandwich attack on the twenty eighteen Olympics I mean. My Book has been out for months. I think show pretty clear evidence that syndrome is responsible for this attack. The very least it was Russia and yet the US and Korean War, These Olympics took place at UK, none of these governments have named Russia as having done that. That attack which almost just invites them to do it again whenever our next Olympics are going to be, I guess maybe not this year, but if you don't send that message than you're just essentially inviting Russia to try again so I think might my big question is what happens now? I mean right we you write about. The NSA has tailored access operations, which is their elite hacking group. We are obviously interested in maintaining some of these capabilities. We've come to a place where people are writing books about how it works. What is the next step? What is the next? does it just keep getting worse or does this kind of diplomacy you're talking about? Is that beginning to happen I? Think there is some little glimmers of hope about the diplomacy beginning to happen I mean this year in February I think it was the State Department's called out a sand worm attack on Georgia, where a worms hackers basically took down a ton of Georgian websites by attacking the hosting providers as well as a couple of TV's broadcasters in the US. State Department with a few other governments not. said this was sand. Worm named the unit of the GRU. That's is that was confirmation that I've been looking for for a long time, but they also made a point of saying that we're calling this out is unacceptable, even though Georgia. Georgia is not part of NATO or the U. so that's that's progress. That's essentially creating a new kind of rule. That's state-sponsored. Hackers can't do certain things, no matter who the victims and that's really important. Also, it was kind of interesting because federal officials like gave me a heads up about that announcement before happened, which they have very very rarely do and I think they were trying. To say was in we. We read your book and we. Got The message okay like Stop attacking us about this like we're trying. We're doing something different here I. Don't want flatter myself that I actually changed their policy, but it did seem interesting that they wanted to tell me personally about this so i. I think that like maybe our stance on this kind of diplomacy is evolving, and we're learning lessons, but at the same time we also see the attacks evolving to. To and their new innovations in these kinds of disruption happening, we've seen since some of these terrible Sandra attacks. You know other very scary things like this piece of our called Triton or crisis that was used to disabled safety systems in a oil refinery in Saudi Arabia on that was you know that could have caused an actual physical explosion of petrochemical facility? The the attacks are evolving to okay final last real question. Tell people where they can get your book. You can find all kinds of places by on indie Greenberg Dot net. Written another book as well previously, yes. That's right. I wrote a book about wikileaks. Cypher punks and things like that. That's right well. I'm a huge fan. It was an honor to talk to you. Thank you so much for coming on I know it's. It's a weird time to be talking about anything, but the coronavirus I was very happy to talk about something else, which is that it seems a little bit more in control Even if it is quite dangerous, a thank you for the time.

Bruce Rasa - AgVoice: Voice Tech for the Farm
"Fascinating space because it seems, everyone is interested in voice. Everyone's willing to try and trial. It but we. We really here's got sparked. So about five years ago many people might remember that. Google did a public competition. For. Smart Glasses and they primarily aimed at you. Know vast majority that at the consumer market. But when I saw the device first floor in about it as a possible successor, initially compliment, but possible successor to the smartphone itself. I was really intrigued. At could be A. Very useful very practical everyday hands on tool to help people collect a saying for example in any industrial use case. And I just knew that intuitively because of Mine Akron grown up on the farm, families still farms in total like my a father brother GonNA cousins farm about ten thousand acres in western Missouri. uncles Nance also have an portrait of a forty thousand apple trees. Really Groping really neat, fascinating, rich diverse environment for for agricultural. work in the short versions observe was her hands on intense job, so when hands free tool came along I was interested tried out, so the specific origin story was. Through my name in the ring. In a you know Google did a public competition said. What would you do if you had this device? And I said well, if I had glass I would help. Farmers Growers Connect with consumers and show how their food is grown in a safe and environmentally responsible way so effectively the type of communications platform. To allow the world of agriculture to connect with the world of consumers, which usually has a lot of. Differences are GonNa Misunderstandings and the simple version is I was I was fortunate I was selected. and went through the list of the eight thousand people selected, and only five even mentioned the word agriculture. Got, this, device that has intriguing possibility, it's tested and so I actually I got the device in Los, Angeles I fully can say Missouri, and I went and test it with farmers the next day, so the first place in the world, smart glasses retested in the in the food production sector, anyway at least to general purpose, you know mass device. On Google's device was in western cooler bar. That's so cool, yeah! I think that's super interesting and you mentioned something there. You know hands busy labor intensive like that's where I think that. This is where it really caught. My attention is this. Is this notion that you know you think about that type of job? If you're a grower, you're a farmer more times than not I would imagine that you are doing things that are really. Really preoccupying yourself, but I think that as I've learned a little bit about your product, it really allows for them to continue to do the job that they're doing, but also sort of take care of a lot of different like almost like clerical work right like this is what I did today. These were the amount of bushels of apples that I picked. The right s you know kind of going like one by one and you can do this all on the go and and I. Just think that's so interesting, because clearly as you know, I would imagine that would the type of feedback that you've gotten is like this is a really positive thing because it allows me to do my job just way more efficiently than I had been doing it can. Can you speak a little bit to that idea of like how this tool serves that type of professional? Assure so a couple of examples quicken in that you know toying with the device on my whole goal was to put that. SMART glasses in a lot of people's hands, which I I got to meet with about eight hundred people over the course of a year people were from. Slightly more than twenty different countries got very diverse input and Dave. Two things came out loud and clear was. Screaming need for hands free device. NC exactly what you said was people already with a hands on job, sometimes a full professional job, not just if you will caller, but all of them have an escalating need to capture information as they're doing their job and they don't WanNa stop work doesn't sound like a big deal. Many people saying office, but this this stops ten twenty or thirty percent of their day by today's recordkeeping, which is really not frankly they're usually. They're talented their passion. But the the second thing that came out in their search was the voice recognition absolutely sucked. So these people have specialized dedicated jobs there. People could veterinarians a plant scientists agronomist. Machinery inspectors repair support in a very specific jobs. Basically, they have a very specific vocabulary or dictionary or lexicon. If you will a things they need to do the reports and pretty simple. If you if anyone listening this is tried anything with a general purpose, surface optimize for consumers be Siri. It could be google. Times Alexa Cortana. Usually those things really. Are Not optimized all for specific industrial use case yen. Okay, the second thing is. I'd observe what has happened. Ed Buried very successfully in the healthcare sector. So the quick kind of analogy there is whistling somewhat. Similar idea, but again the healthcare sector just one company alone called nuance. Brilliant job kind of from a distance think last I understood they've about five hundred thousand. Users that are doctors, nurses, health practitioners doing this thing you're talking about to invoice capture against healthcare records, so the big benefit to them is a reduction in this this overwhelming painful. recordkeeping piece so critical mandatory yet 'cause it's a major. Of Major source of overwhelming and burn out for physicians and other people in health care. And the second thing is frankly they're taking their eyes off the patient.

Do you see any big risks for bedrock? The risks when you go public is the litigation risk when you're a private company, your own by very small group of people, not only a few people who get angry and you typically work it out. When you go public, any of your thousands or tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of shareholders can sue you, and in fact, there's a whole group of lawyers. The Plaintiff Securities Law Bar, cruising around, and if you have a disappointing quarter, they can't get. Anybody fired but what they can do. is file lawsuits claiming some kind of securities fraud so public company spend just even the best up and up. Public companies just regularly.

Small business emergency lending program expands fintechs portfolios
"The paycheck protection program is a weekend to its second round of hopefully funding small businesses through the corona virus outbreak. Some financial tech companies also known as Syntax got permission from Congress to offer those loans. They include pay pal into it cabbage and others. The hope is that they can get loans to people and businesses who haven't worked with traditional banks in the past and the Fintech say they're tack is also an advantage but so is that true. Let's dig into it and quality assurance the segment where we take a second look at Big Tech Story Felix. Salmon is chief financial correspondent for the tech site axios. The banks were a bit slow to be able to set up websites that customers found it impossible to get to a to a human being or to find out where they stood whether their applications were going through and there was a general feeling that given that all of this was being done on the Internet the Internet companies might be better doing it than the banks were so relatively quickly. This program was opened up so that the eligible lenders included not only banks but also Internet companies Lake Pay Pal and quicken and square. Gotcha I mean. I feel like one of the questions about these lenders. And FINTECH companies and neo banks in particular is that in some ways they serve. Replace this idea of the Community Bank. Like do we have any evidence that they are or could be more inclusive than established lenders. I think they are in the if you applied for P. P. Loan from pay pal. Then your chances of guessing it. We're probably the same no matter who you were given that many of the people applying if not most of the businesses applying had no particular relationship with these Fintech to begin with now doesn't mean they're going to get that loans. It's far from clear that the ability of pay pal to get loans through the SBA system and get people. Funded is any greater than any other bank. But at least you can feel that you're on a level playing field if that's any. Solis which you probably isn't to be honest. Who is applying through? Let's say pay pal or square or into it. Who are these small businesses to a first Brooks mission? Everyone who didn't get a loan or wasn't able to get through when applying through that bank. Whatever the reason was if you haven't got your money it's not give up on your bank entirely but you say well. Maybe I can't get a loan through my bank. I should try a getting along with someone else and given the it's not difficult to apply through pay pal. Oh quicken intuit it. You May as well try if they come back to you and say hey you've been funded. Brin and you can take the money and if they don't it's no harm no foul and is there any evidence or will there ever be a way to tell you think whether they claim that these kind of like tech driven platforms are more nimble and better able to get your application through than a big bank the banks and the Fintech have all been extremely unhelpful? When people like you and me have been asking them for details about how many people try to apply. How many of those people who try to apply actually got their money those ratios on not public information than the information that the SBA has see you need to get that information directly from each one. And I don't think any of them are going to be releasing that data on the kind of apples to apples basis that we'll be able to make that determination. Is this an opportunity for these companies like if they are able to establish themselves as this type of lender or just do good by some small businesses is an opportunity for them to build a customer base down the road I think for about twenty four rows an opportunity to get some goodwill? I think the small business owners actually went to those places putting their applications and then didn't receive any money that some of that goodwill did evaporate. What's more of these companies? Aunt actually lenders at heart companies like paypal and square a much more based on payments on loans. And so. It's not clear that even if this did give them a foot in the door when it came to small business lending that something that they would really want to be right and it feels like certainly some of them have provided loans like cabbage are into it but the others haven't to think they're likely to discover that in fact. This is a terrible morass that they would like to back out of slowly. Small business loans were horrible thing to be in in general because small businesses so many things can go wrong is so difficult to really get under the hood and find out how credit worthy they are for. P. It's different because it's all guaranteed by the government so you don't need to spend too much time really underwriting the loan and understanding the business before extending the credit but if you want to actually lend money to small businesses as part of your business especially if you're doing unsecured and you're not you don't have access to cash flows which you can just S- ts to pay back the loan. Then yeah it's really Nali business where lots of lenders have become unstuck. And it's not clear that very many investors want these companies to get into that line of

"To your previous episodes on folklore, particularly Jenny green teeth in the willow, the wisp. I believe your team could do an amazing job of dealing with the many facets of these creatures and beliefs. Why do some cultures have them in some not? Why do they what do they say about us? How did some of these pagan concepts vibe Christianity, formalized religion and modernisation while others were lost though? Not as immediate as other folkloric entities where wolves vampires etcetera there is something so Matic and disturbing about the idea of creatures lurking in the peripheries of our homes. Best regards from snowy Sweden, and thanks again for the wonderful podcast. Thank you, Simon. I think that's a great idea for an episode to explore. Yeah. Totally. And you know, I'm a meeting reminded that there there are variations of this that you see in in Chinese mythology. I mean, the most obvious being like that of like of certain Lee of of a household spirit or God, you know, the the kitchen God. But I do see this kind of thing code. I think a lot of different mythologies and folklore the idea that there are there are not only the strange entities, and then spirits of the woods in the waste. But also of the immediate domicile. I can absolutely see how beliefs like this. Or a specially likely to survive the sort of devastating sweep of an organized religion conquers. So you yeah. You might see like Christianity conquers Europe, and it largely gets rid of organized pagan religion. And yet pagan beliefs that are sort of private and concerned with with the secret. Of life remain does that make sense? Absolutely. And especially if there's not something in the new religion that really scratches the same issue. It's not going to it's not going to satisfy the, you know, the this particular, you know, dark or just unstated corner of everyday experience. In fact, I remember reading stories when I visited Iceland a few years ago, we were learning about the history of Iceland. And they're they're like national museum in Reykjavik, and one of the one of the things I remember reading about there, and some of their exhibits was the Christianisation of Iceland. So they I think I don't remember which they were under different like imperial powers from northern Europe at different times under like Denmark or Norway or Sweden. I guess, but at some point the the Christian is Asian impulse came from abroad, and they were like, okay, Iceland, you gotta become Christians now. So the leaders of their clans got together, and they intially negotiated a compromise and the negotiated compromise. Was that they would be Christians do Christian worship in public as long as they could still keep doing their pagan practices in private at home. Interesting. Well, that's a great way for the you're you're more minor household spirits to survive the change. All right. So we've got another message here. This comes to us in response to our episode about tunneling underground this from our listener Li Li writes, greetings from Australia. I'm guessing you're going to get a lot of these because we're taught this in school just following up regarding your episode about tunnel ours in coober pedy. I don't know if I'm saying that right, but C O R P E D Y, South Australia about eight hundred kilometers north of the state's capital Adelaide people live underground, but it is a fairly recent development. The community did begin as one of the largest Opal mining communities in the world. However, people began living underground in dugouts because the heat in the painted desert can be extreme over thirty degrees celsius and dry for six months of the year. And in winter, it will usually be in. The twenties. They also didn't have to pay or seek permission to extend their houses, and it's relatively cheap and quick to get materials when you are an independent minor to build a house underground underground in Cooper petty. The temperature is a constant twenty six I guess that's also celsius, which is quite nice and cool. However, they are not necessarily caves or underground they also build mounds and live within them.

"All right. We're back. I to make take a quick moment here to talk a little bit about another sword wielding warrior, and that being the legendary Irish hero coup Holon or coup Cullen, orca Kellen, we had a lot of Irish listeners right in about this and correct on the pronunciation or give their two cents on the pronunciation. So first of all I want to mention that. I reached out to my friend Linus online who is not a listener to the show because he sucks, but he, but he is Irish. And so he I asked him what you're how would you say this? And he says he told me that it would be a colon. Granted this wasn't much help as it occurred. After we recorded the episode. We also heard from listener been in the discussion module. That's our Facebook discussion group stuff to discussion module, and he said quote there three dialects in Irish, Don. Legal Connemara and Munster, and they all vary. I've heard the second see pronounced as a hard. See and your pronunciation is. Well, I received people always disagree on pronunciation, depending on where they're from. You guys did a great job. And I loved the episode. And then it was also pointed out that the Pogues have a song on their nineteen eighty five album rum sodomy and the lash which I listen to a lot years back. Just wasn't in my my head to go back into you know, I didn't remember that. There was a Polk song that mentioned him. But in that song here. Shane macgowan saying more like coup. Kellen colon colon KU Kellen. So if we were to go with shame gallon then. Yeah, we were incorrect in our episode for sure. Well, sounds like they can't even make up their own minds. Well, my interpretation is that we were probably wrong of we really wanted to dig our heels in and say, no, we know what we're talking about with see. Okay, foolishly than we would be able to perhaps back up our case by pointing to a particular dialect, but I'm happy to say we've probably messed up the pronunciation a little bit there. But it seems like everybody really enjoyed the episode regardless. So our apologies. Well, I'll try to do colon from now on, but man, those Irish ones are they're harder than most languages. They're mouthful. All right, continuing on the subject of pronunciation, we also got quite a few communications about the product pronunciation of Uranus. Aka urine us a perfectly. We're going from colon to Uranus right since that's exactly where the guy Bogo went exactly straight into war uh knows. Apparently, that's another way to do it. So listener Nile rights says sorry. When you went off on your pronunciation of Uranus. It reminded me of one of my favorite jokes, which you're welcome to use. I'm sure I heard it from someone somewhere, you know, how jokes goes. So anyway was the starship enterprise like a roll of toilet paper because they both circle Uranus. Looking for klingons? A that is that's one of the worst jokes ever worse off for having heard that joke. Should we cut it out? Now, we gotta keep it. No, sadly, okay, Albert gets in touch and says, hey, guys on the topic of pronunciation, I had an observation. I speak Japanese which uses a phonetic alphabet in Japanese Uranus. Or you're in us is in the uses some Japanese characters which you would right as you run new sue which is pronounced with all short vowels..

Why never had the pleasure of seeing the quickening? I was tickled to hear you mentioned among highlanders various spin off series, the two animated films. Now, I don't claim to be a Highlander connoisseur is I've only seen the original nineteen six film and one of these animated features namely Highlander quest for vengeance. But although objectively terrible Highlander quest for vengeance. Was my initial introduction to the series, and remains my most supreme guilty pleasure.

I may have seen that I do watch some sort of empire hunter animate back in the day, and the animatrix it's also written by David Abramowitz who gave us Highlander the series and Highlander the raven is one of those the cop show, the raven is the cop. So we may have another listener mail by this. But I think she was technically thief, and she like works with cop. It's still it's still a cop show. But anyway, she continues I won't spoil too much in case other listeners check it out, but we'll say this edition to the Highlander series is absolutely worthwhile for the Celtic and Roman history. Buffs like myself. It's epic scope definitely plunges into the ridiculous, and like many of Jerry's films, the animation alone makes it worth a watch it functions. Well, as a standalone film, so even if you haven't seen other Highlander related material, it's very accessible I recommend it to anyone who's a fan of the original. Well, now, I wanna see that too. Because you know, I definitely have nostalgia for for the Highlander series. And I have a. Little bit of I think, I'm almost to the point my life where it can be nostalgic about watching some of these anime films in college. Now, you know, what I think I didn't realize this until just now I think this is not the first time Amelia has gotten in touch with us about Highland. I think she might be a listener who's written to multiple times whenever we mentioned Highlander on the show..

I'm so glad you finally made good on your promise lash threat to do this episode as it was well worth the wait. We're glad you're glad while I've never seen any of the Highlander movies. I've al- I'd always seem to be part of the pop culture in media landscape during my teen years in the late nineties and indeed while it was it was always on either the movies, especially the, you know, the first the first one especially to get on TV constantly on USA all the time. Probably I know I was on USA all the time. So that's probably where watch that or TBS TNT. Those were MMA hangouts. He continues growing up. I watched a lot of USA Highlander TV series both live action. And animated always seemed to be on. No matter what day or time. It was even today I can still seeing slash home the opening of princes of the universe. That's just how ingrained it is. In me. I guess you could call it. The let it go. The late nineties cult cinema slash TV for me. I think that's a song from frozen. I know this from my friends who have little kid. That's definitely from frozen. And yeah, Princess of the universe is kind of our our frozen, even though for the TV show the movies. They never use the full version, you know, because it gets a little weird later in the song.

"Mindlessly clicking around the internet and run into a quick news. Blurb that someone found a copy of the patriot tucked away in a weather just in an old producers addict or something like that one of the majority of readers would skim right over that news for me. It would be like locating the holy grail. Thanks for your continued offering which offerings which enlighten and entertain us. All Tony in Chicago. Of course, this the bears that makes sense. Well, thank you. Tony. Yeah. Sounds like unless somebody finds a copy of the patriot your life is a lie. I I I can understand what he means about like the desire to find something that you are into. And then you set the goal of completing it. Yeah. I fall into this trap. Sometimes they discover a new author that I really did. Or filmmaker an artist even wanna be a completion est or I've also done this with discover a new in the past of I discovered like a new professional wrestler, like some new Japanese professional wrestler that I had never heard of before. And then like, I've gotta see all their matches now. And then of course, you always run into the same problem like either it's an actual incompleteness situation. Where okay this film is not available or this book is is is as hasn't been published in ages. And now it's too expensive to buy used copy up or you just run into the fact that if you become a complete on something like sometimes, you're means consuming stuff. That's maybe not the Primo mature. Cereal. You know, like sometimes it's best just to stick to the top five. Hits from this particular artist rather than dive into their full discography, but still seventy percent completion rate on on nominees. That's pretty good. Well, I know I also see the appeal of just going down the list, even when there their other things you could be doing right. I was thinking about when we were getting really into the nineteen eighty nine underwater payroll movies. And it's like, even though you know that like lords of the deep is is not gonna be good. Maybe not even good bad. You're just you've just gotta go down there because you've already started. And I did that. Luckily, there was a mystery science theater. Three thousand episode of lords the date came out this year or the tail into last year. But I also tried to watch. I forget the name of it lose like a German nineteen Eighty-nine underwater film. Not one of the top tier either. It was it was really bad. It was it was unwatchable head nothing of I that's why I have nothing to even say about it other than it was just complete boredom, but you got to cross it off. That's true. I did it to cross it off. Okay. Carney's going gone into kurkin mode. Oh, no. I think he has a correction we have wrath coming our way. Well, okay. So this is from Dunkin so don't can begins by saying. Hi, guys, a couple of minor corrections. If you will forgive my OCD, I think this might be a little more of a clarification, but we'll take it. Yeah. We're in favor of clarity. Yeah. So Duncan says about gravitational physics in our thought experiment episode. You know, we talked about the idea of of the the Aristoteles in view of gravity versus the Galileo view of gravity. And so what Duncan says is most people get a couple of simple semantic distinctions wrong..

I've made dozens of lists a variety of topics from my fifty favourite REM songs to the most heartbreaking losses in Chicago Bears history that I have seen as an avid movie fan. I have always loved the Academy Awards and found my viewing of the ceremony was more enjoyable when I had seen all the best picture nominees beforehand. This triggered deny DEA that would become my greatest undertaking yet watching all of the movies that had ever been nominated for best picture. Whoa. As of this writing. I have seen three hundred and eighty eight of five hundred fifty four for a list of glitz completion of. Seventy percent, which I think is pretty impressive. That's a lot of movies. Tony alas. It was only after I was well into this project that I discovered there is no known surviving copy of the patriot one of the nominees from nineteen twenty eight this, of course, means that no matter what effort I give..

My biggest question, which is what were you doing with the headlamp out in the backyard? Dominique where you burying a body. What's happening here? A lot of reasons to go into your backyard with the headlamp mining for lead, selfies maybe searching for the source of the Nile. I mean, there are a number of reasons to go back there. Anyways, thanks to the podcast guys. I love every minute of it. And oh, by the way, he is. He is from Florida can be quite buggy. So that also explains it now, Robert you mentioned in that episode that you once when you were a kid had a bug fly into your ear in that it was very loud. So does this match your experience Lutely newspaper. Absolutely as he described it brought back the sense memory of that that time. All right. We got another one about the bugs under the skin episode. This one is from our listener Ming Ming says, hey, Robert, Joe, just listen to your episode on bugs under the skin and I loved it, really gross. And fascinating at the same time. The copious mentions of sin appears in orifices. And bugs in ears reminded me of the doin. Woo festival. So I thought I'd ride in about it. I grew up in central China and every Duanmu festival. My grandfather would crush up reality, which is a arsenic sulfide mineral actually had to look it up. I didn't know what that was. But so he would crush up reality to make gene Hong zoo. Hope I said that right? It's a type of yellow wine people drink toward away evil as well as poisonous creatures as a child at the time, I was only allowed a tiny bit of the wine to drink. But my grandfather would pour drops of inside. Both my ears when I would ask why he would explain that. It was to keep Cinta Pedes from crawling into my ears because reality was a powerful deterrent to the creepy. Crawlies this featured heavily in mythology to where sin pede monsters or snake monsters, two of the five poisons in Chinese myth would be undone by reality. It was only with research. Just now brought on by the episode that I found out that reality is an arson. Nick, selfies mineral, I guess what keeps people away keeps bugs away to. Thanks as always for the show, my favorite in the stuff network Ming. Well, thank you so much. We're glad you like it. Yes. Indeed. I always love to hear from listeners who have spent time in China. I wanna know a little more about this though, what did that feel like in the ear, the arsenic sulfide? Does that burn? What does that do? And is it indeed preferable to an actual centipede in the ear? I suspect that it probably is probably probably Brandis emerged. Somebody got a centipede in the ear. And then they said, well, this this kind of sucks, but it's still far better than worrying about centipedes in the air. Okay. This next Email concerns, both dangerous foods and idiot phones. So this is from our listener, Joe she lives in Malaysia. And Joe rights. I discovered your podcast and have been slowly working my way through all of the episodes..

I just finished a running the diagnosis software on our good male body here. And it turns out he is suffering from symptoms of multiple Highlander personality disorder. Oh, no. He was apparently infected by that recent Highlander to the sciences episode that we did. And so he keeps altering his ego.

Now as always we don't have time to respond to every bit of listener, mail or social media interaction that comes in. And we don't have time in this episode to read all of the great listener males have come in over the past month, or so, but we're going to try and touch some some of the high points and respond to some of the more conversational bits that have come in. But just as we always say if we didn't have time to respond to you. And you're not featured on the episode. Don't worry it's not because we didn't like your Email. We just don't have have. We don't have all the time in the world here. Be it known that we do appreciate all the correspondence we get. So thank you so much, and please keep it coming.

So this one is from Dominic. Writes in says, hey, guys, I was listening to the bugs under the skin episode and thought an experience I had would be worth sharing one night a few months ago, I was walking around our backyard with a headlamp on and as sometimes happens with lights at night, it attracted a few different insects that preceded to fly around my head. It was a little annoying. But no big deal until one of them flew directly into my ear. It didn't hurt or anything. But it was the prising loud like someone aggressively rubbing newspaper together right by my ear. And by the feel of it. I thought it was a small Mark or something maybe a half inch show long or so I went inside and had my wife peak in there with an audit scope, we have for our kids, and my surprise, even as I was feeling and hearing this thing she said, she couldn't see anything at all annoyed and somewhat in disbelief, I proceeded of a flush my flesh the year out with some warm water and was surprised when out wash a tiny little white fly.

Oh, the prostate honest will cast a key or because prostate honest is Latin for God. They'll just order the door to be opened. And then finally the oral surgeon will just knock the damn door down.

There's a Mexican place there's a El Salvadorian place. So I decided it'd be a great idea to get some raw oysters from there from from that place from a street vendor. Basically raw oysters from a street vendor. And then we walked to the venue from there, which is like right up Broadway Annella in LA, and we ran into a madman shop, which is a shop that sells legal cannabis in California purchase some Gumy's. So can you imagine? What happens when you mix a few beers with raw oysters from a street vendor? And. A couple of Gumy's, and I will tell you this story next week. All right.
