Bolsonaro Challenges Brazil Election He Lost to Lula
"The United States media and also the western media have kind of gone silent on Brazil following the Brazilian election. So it's almost like the media left heaved a collective sigh of relief. Oh, our man Lula da Silva socialist has beaten Bolsonaro and basically we are now looking forward to all of Latin and South America falling into the hands of the left. Which by the way is a danger as possibility. But in Brazil, the issue is not settled at all, it seems. There have been continuing massive demonstrations. Most recently a demonstration in front of the military headquarters, apparently over 2 million people. Think about that. 2 million people in Brazil make a big country, but nevertheless, this is a this is one of the largest crowds that you'll see anywhere in the world. And what are the people saying they're basically saying that this is an election that demands to be audited. So in other words, this is, in a sense, familiar territory. They're saying that there was a lot of cheating in the election, particularly in the Rio de Janeiro area, spent some discussion of whether there have been there was pre programming of the machines and apparently there's now a divide in Brazil between the Defense Department and the Supreme Court.
One Bright Light in This Midterm Landscape
"There are not a lot of bright lights and this midterm landscape. But one of them, surely, is the steady movement of Latinos toward the GOP. Now, this is not a movement that has been completed. It is a movement that is underway. If you look, for example, at Florida, heavy Latino vote for desantis and interestingly, he seems to have won Latinos kind of across the board. With Greg Abbott in Texas, the results a little bit more mixed, but Abbott got a decent share of the Latino vote. If you look at the Rio Grande valley a special interest of W's and mine because Debbie grew up there, we had three Latina Republicans running Cassie Garcia and Myra Flores, who was in Debbie's own district where her mom lives. And then Monica de la Cruz. So normally one of them, Monica, dela Cruz won. But the other two actually came really close. Cassie Garcia was edged out by the way by a fairly conservative Democrat cuellar. Is that the guy's name Henry, Henry cuellar, and Myra Flores, I mean, this is a district that used to go easily 60 40, 20 point difference or more. Even more. And Myra got what, 43 or 44. And so the other guy, so does that still a ten point gap, but the point is the gap is narrowing.

Latina GOP House Candidate Cassy Garcia Calls Into the Show
"It's a very interesting story unfolding in southern Texas. Rio Grande valley, there are three Latina conservatives that are running for office and one of them joins us right now. It's Cassie Garcia running for Congress in district 28, and she has a very important story to share about how her opponent has accepted cartel money, Cassie joins us right now. Cassie, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Bye Charlie, this is Cassie, I'm so honored to be with you on today as we're 7 days away. From election night. Yes, we are. And I feel like it's going to be a very, very good night. So tell us about your opponent and the story that he's accepting cartel money yeah, so, you know, Henry cuellar, as everyone knows, is a beloved Democrat love by Republicans, but then today he's a Democrat. He's been in office for 18 years, but he's been serving in public services 19 87. Since I've been in kindergarten and now he has accepted he accepted years ago bribes money from a wife of a cartel member. And people should find his I'm deeply disturbed by this. And I think the people of district 28 should be disturbed by this report. And first of all, a congressman should never accept campaign contributions from many from, especially from Rosetta, it's one of the worst deadliest drug cartels on our southwest border. And you know what? It's also shelving powder because right now he's under a criminal investigation for corruption as well.
How Brazil Got California'd
"Is making some international headlines. For now, unfortunately, displacing the great leader hare Bolsonaro, so look, in Brazil, they have an interesting system. They have a straight popular vote system. And if Brazil had an Electoral College Bolsonaro would have won. So I know very little about Brazil politics. I know probably more than an average American, but I'm far from an expert on it. But there's different regions in Bolsonaro one, every single region, except what is in Portuguese called the nordeste region, of which I don't know where that is. I'm guessing that is the most populated area of the country. And so or yeah, if it's northeast, and I don't know what, I guess that would be, I don't know what, I guess that's the population center. I can't imagine Rio de Janeiro's in the northeastern part of the country as per they describe it. Okay, it's not, but he won it in a big way, I guess. So if you look at the percentages, though, if you win 70, 30 in that one portion of the country, then you are able to basically run the table. It's basically like just winning California 75, 25, and then you become president. You

Jim Hanson and Heritage's Mike Howell Discuss the Oversight Project
"Go ahead and keep kicking the deep state in the teeth because I'm joined now with my cowl who is the director of the oversight project at the heritage foundation. And Mike, I am 100% certain that if anybody needs some oversight, it is those people across the river from where I'm sitting right now in the permanent bureaucracy. So tell me what you guys got Tito. What's the oversight project about, man? Right. So the oversight project is a recognition that in the next two years, when conservative state, the house and probably the Senate, it's going to be all accountability oversight hearings and investigations. And now conservative institutions institutions historic have done a great job of white papers, policy development, but that's not what time it is right now. We know the institutions of the federal government have been captured. We know what's happening. We are already so downstream of all this stuff. We need to start kicking back a little bit. So we created what we call the oversight process. When it basically is, is the investigative arm of the heritage foundation and the conservative movement. We do a lot of foia litigation. I mean, we all know what boy is already sending me. I hope you get some back. None of that matters unless you sue. And so we're taking the big bad heritage foundation. Expertise we have, and turning it into a litigation army, all these foia requests. So every time you see kind of a congressional letter going out asking for information, they're not going to response, you know, the Biden administration is not voluntarily coughing up any information. So what we're doing is we're going to go in. We're suing strategically all over the place. Right now we have about 400 boys outweigh litigation ten different places. And we're already getting quite a bit of stuff. If you saw last week or, you know, I think it was the 12th actually of October. We got an email from mayorkas, the DHS head. The first press secretary told him right before he went up in The White House podium that there's no weapon in Del Rio. You remember when they accused them of work religions of women. And we saw this like this. This is ridiculous. Obviously there's no weapon. There's got to be some gold here. And so we went out and you know we sued him for all the communications. He had before he did that abomination of the press conference, throwing border patrol into the bus. And sure enough, he went up there and we found it. So what did he want to do anyways? And so, you know, we launched that a couple weeks ago. And now what do you have? You have basically the entire conference of Republicans in the House and Senate. Calling for his impeachment. I mean,
Dinesh Unpacks Nancy Pelosi's Comments About Punching Trump
"Debbie and I were on the road, we went together to Michigan for an event, a right to life event, very successful, and then we were home for a day and then off to the Rio Grande valley to visit Debbie's mom. And that was great. Now, while we were gone, a video surfaced, it was played on CNN of Nancy Pelosi, saying the following. This was actually recorded on January 6th. I hope he comes. She's talking about Trump. I want to punch him out. I've been waiting for this. I'm going to punch him out. I'm going to go to jail. I'm going to be happy. Now, this is remarkable for the simple fact that here you have the Speaker of the House talking about. And with evidence sincerity, if she doesn't seem to be kidding, she has no kind of humorous laughter afterward. I'm just obviously just saying, no, she wants Trump to come so she can punch him in the face. Punch the president of the United States in the face. Now, interestingly, the left's reaction to all this, in fact, I saw one guy on TV and he was like, Nancy Pelosi was extremely restrained. I'm thinking restrained. Well, what would an unrestrained Nancy Pelosi be like? I want to do what? Do more? Do what? So this was not restrained. This is actually conduct very unbecoming, and yet here is a Vanity Fair. Nancy Pelosi like millions of Americans wanted to punch Trump in the face. So this is a little way in which you see our rhetoric in this country escalating. And I think reaching a little bit of a dangerous a dangerous level.
Dinesh Calls In From Texas
"I thought you might all be missing dinesh while he was away this week, so I asked him to pop on today's podcast and drop some truth bombs on us. Hello. Hey. I'm checking in from the Rio Grande valley. So hello from the south of Texas. Well, thanks for joining us. How is your week been so far? I know you've been traveling. You've done a lot of speeches and now you're doing some things in South Texas. So what have you been up to? Well, normally, when I take a week off, it might seem like Debbie and I just relaxing and doing nothing. But not this week. So over the weekend, I went to, well, I went to the Appalachian Mountains and I gave a talk in Kentucky because it's called pikeville Kentucky. Not an easy place to get to. I have to drive to flight to Cleveland on a flight of Cincinnati and then drive three hours, then I went from there on me. We went Grand Rapids. Well, you were in Michigan recently. So I spoke at Grand Rapids right to life, their annual fundraising gala went 1300 people was fantastic. Just wonderful audience, lovely people. And then we were home for a day, and now we are visiting David's mom, mitzi, who says hello. And also her sister, Karen. So we are all hanging out and taking it easy. And a little bit later, we're gonna meet with the campaign staff of omayra Flores, who's running in this district, a very important race because it kind of symbolizes the shift of Hispanics towards the GOP.

Justin Bieber Not-So-Shockingly Quits His Tour
"Today Justin Bieber exactly one month after announcing he was taking a break from his justice world tour to focus on his health, he revealed that he really can't see resuming it for at least 6 months. The tour was set to end in late March 2023 in Poland, now it seems that's the earliest it might resume. The announcement posted to social media indicates that the justice world tour ended with rock and Rio, which you know he September was the last time he performed. This tour has been postponed 5 times COVID, then he had the in June of 2022. He was battling Ramsay hunt syndrome, which gave him the facial paralysis. Beaver said, I gave everything I have, but it took a real toll on me. Really? What are you fucking 25, 28? Jesus Christ. You should be doing all night. No sleep. Don't miss out. Just cancel the tour. His career is over. I hinted at this weeks ago. The kid got famous with teeny boppers and shopping malls, then they graduated the teenagers in arenas, and now as I said a month or so ago, do you know a 30 year old woman who wants to see Justin Bieber saying? Of course you don't. Do you think he wants to sink to 16 year olds? No. So he hates singing to young girls in Asia and South America or he's not connecting to whatever crowd he sees staring back at him now. Or really more than likely the ticket sales suck and he's depressed, singing to empty seats.

Who Is Being Trafficked at the Southern Border? Mark Lamb Explains
"There any commonality who is being trafficked? Are they all Mexicans where they're coming from? Are they politically persecuted? Do we know? Are they just economic migrants? Can you tell who these people are? And that is a really good question because it varies from where you go on the border. If you go to the Yuma sector, what you get in Yuma is you get Venezuelans and Brazilians and Chinese. Hang on, hang on hang on. We don't have a border with Brazil or China. Exactly. So they shouldn't be able to claim asylum. Right. They're flying into small towns in Mexico. I want to stop that because international law is clear on this. If you're an asylum seeker, which is not an economic immigrant, you are claiming political persecution or religious or whatever from your home state. International law requires just for the record that the first safe country you land in once you leave your own is where you apply for silent. You can't go through ten countries because you want to go to America and then apply for asylum, right? Yeah, and they are going through ten countries. I ran into a Venezuelan family. They told me they flew to one of the Central American countries. From there, they flew to Mexico from there, they had to traverse the dangers of the cartel to get across the border. So they had two or three opportunities to claim asylum before they ever got to the borders of America. So in Yuma county and in Del Rio, you might get Haitians and Brazilians and all sorts of people that have had an opportunity to claim asylum in Mexico or whatever country they got to first, which is the law. Which means they're coming here for economic reasons, right? They're coming here for economic reasons. And when you ask them, they say we're here because Biden said we could come.
LULAC Decries Gov. Greg Abbott's 'Political Stunts'
"Back to lulac. So they are actually suing Abbott because they think that Abbott's tactic of sending the bus loads to D.C. and where else did he send him, not Martha's Vineyard. That was D.C. in New York. Do you see a New York? So he thought, oh, you are just dehumanizing these people. These Latinos, from Central and South America, they deserve human rights. They deserve to have rights. Well, you know, here's the thing. They are breaking the law, right? So really by that logic, that means that if somebody breaks into our House, what we have to feed them, we have to treat them with respect because they broke into our House. Hello? Well, the situation here though is complicated, I think, because even though you're right, that these are people who are not lawfully in the country, in a way they're not like people who broke into your house because you never collaborated with them to get in the house. Think about it. The Biden administration. Yes, but that would be like, say, our community, HOA, collaborating with them without our consent. Without August. Because that's what's happening. Is that the Biden administration is not asking the folks in the Rio Grande. If it's okay for these people to come over or anybody else. Not to mention the Texas as a state doesn't want them. And so governor Abbott in his sense of saying, listen, you guys claim to be sanctuary cities. Yes. You are pushing for. You know, and the brilliant thing about this is that nobody and I mean nobody is down there at the border, filming these people coming in. So what Abbott did, what desantis did is he's making it an issue. He wants the reporters to report about illegals because otherwise nobody else is reporting about a year. No one knows there's illegals in this country,

"For <Speech_Female> <Speech_Music_Female> <SpeakerChange> <Music> <Silence> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> us <Speech_Female> it was really important <Speech_Music_Female> to make sure that these <Speech_Female> organizers <Speech_Female> and these clinics <Speech_Female> were centered <Speech_Female> because <Speech_Female> unfortunately <SpeakerChange> they haven't <Speech_Music_Female> been. <Speech_Music_Female> We're all <Speech_Music_Female> very angry. <Music> <Speech_Music_Female> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Music_Female> Which <Speech_Music_Female> is good because it's anger <Speech_Music_Female> that moves us to tongue <Speech_Music_Female> that gets things <Speech_Music_Female> going and get <Speech_Music_Female> things changing. <Speech_Female> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> After filming <Speech_Female> in this area for <Speech_Female> so long, <Speech_Female> we saw that religion <Speech_Female> was such a <Speech_Female> important <Speech_Female> part of people's lives. <Speech_Female> And so <Speech_Female> many people <Speech_Female> were kind of letting <Speech_Female> religious values <Speech_Female> drive <Speech_Female> the way that they vote, <Speech_Female> but <Speech_Female> it wasn't necessarily <Speech_Female> religion <Speech_Female> that's driving <Speech_Female> people to vote these certain <Speech_Female> ways. It's <Speech_Female> often manipulative <Speech_Female> tactics. <Speech_Female> It's often <Speech_Female> politicians <Speech_Female> that <Speech_Female> might be trying <Speech_Female> to manipulate <Speech_Female> their voter base <Speech_Female> just to vote for them <Speech_Female> and just to gain power. <Speech_Female> So we <Speech_Female> really wanted people <Speech_Female> to understand that, <Speech_Female> you know, it's <Speech_Female> possible to complicate <Speech_Female> these issues and just <Speech_Female> because your religious <Speech_Female> doesn't mean <Speech_Female> you can't <SpeakerChange> be pro <Silence> choice or be pro <Speech_Female> abortion. <Speech_Female> We had a lot <Speech_Female> of difficult moments <Speech_Female> to put it <Speech_Female> lightly. <Speech_Female> And I <Speech_Female> think we both sort of <Speech_Female> helped each <Speech_Female> other get through those moments <Speech_Female> and that was why <Speech_Female> the film <Speech_Female> kept going. When <Speech_Male> one of us was feeling <Speech_Female> dejected <Speech_Female> and frustrated <Speech_Female> from a <Speech_Female> plethora of things, whether it <Speech_Female> be politically <Speech_Female> or lack of <Speech_Female> support <Speech_Female> financially, <Speech_Female> <SpeakerChange> the other <Speech_Female> would step in. <Speech_Female> As <Speech_Female> two young women filmmakers, <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> I will say <Speech_Female> that, yes, it was beneficial <Speech_Female> for us <Speech_Female> to be able to <Speech_Female> film for so long <Speech_Female> in this area <Speech_Female> and to build trust, but at <Speech_Female> the same time, <Speech_Female> it should never have taken <Speech_Female> us 7 years to <Speech_Female> create this film <Speech_Female> and partly that was <Speech_Female> because of lack of <Speech_Female> funding. <Speech_Female> It's hard as women <Speech_Female> directors <Speech_Female> to often <Speech_Female> get that <Speech_Female> same kind of <SpeakerChange> backing <Speech_Music_Female> and financial backing. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> I think <Speech_Female> most documentary filmmakers <Speech_Female> have this <Speech_Female> dilemma of <Speech_Female> one to stop filming, <Speech_Female> especially when <Speech_Female> unfortunately <Speech_Female> politically speaking <Speech_Female> things <SpeakerChange> just <Speech_Male> continue to happen and <Speech_Music_Male> get worse. <Speech_Male> Majority of abortions <Speech_Male> in Texas are now <Speech_Male> banned after the <Speech_Male> Supreme Court did <Speech_Male> not rule on an <Speech_Music_Male> emergency appeal to <Speech_Music_Male> keep a new <SpeakerChange> law from <Speech_Music_Female> taking effect. <Speech_Female> This is one of the strictest <Speech_Female> bans on abortion <Speech_Female> in the country. <Speech_Female> It bans abortions <Speech_Music_Female> as early <Speech_Music_Female> as 6 weeks <Speech_Music_Female> into pregnancy. <Speech_Music_Female> That is before <Speech_Music_Female> most women <SpeakerChange> even <Speech_Music_Female> know that they are <Speech_Female> pregnant.

"Issue by sharing the perspectives of the three people that we chose, we knew that we could open up the conversation and expand where people think when they think about who has a stake in reproductive justice. We really wanted to share stories of everyday people every day, Latina Latinos, LatinX, to have to deal with restricted access in their everyday lives. And also show how religion is a part of this as well. You're in the other way, but nothing enters. You can block the alleyway somewhere else. One of those people was ray, who is a security guard at the clinic. What I see here, sometimes they cross the line. I see it every day. People come here to in southeast girls and make it worse. He was religious his whole life until he started working at the clinic and really started to feel that it was his duty to protect the patients that were coming in. Since I was 7 or 8 years old, I've been going to the church. Now I can't go there. There is a scene in the film where we actually go and film with him outside at a shrine. He has to go to because he's no longer allowed inside of the church in his community. When you come here, at least 5 or ten minutes. You will feel better. And you see him praying for the clinic escorts who he works alongside. Protect my girls. Ask words and patients that go to the clinic, please for me. And my family..

"Wasn't over. What started as a school project turned into something more. We really wanted to create a film that focused on this community that only had one clinic in McAllen, Texas. We really felt that the stories on the border were not being shared. And the stakes were high. If this clinic permanently shut down, people seeking an abortion would need to travel to San Antonio, more than 200 miles away. If anyone's driven from San Antonio to McAllen or the Rio Grande valley, you know that there's a really long stretch of road that's quite gorgeous, but there's a lot of border checkpoints. So the undocumented population living in the Rio Grande valley is not going to want to risk deportation to go to that nearest clinic. They set out to follow people's lives in McAllen. Over the course of several years, as outsiders, they knew that they first needed to build trust and a relationship with the community, here's Maya again. This film took 7 years to make. It was many different films at one point, but really what drove us to finish the film and to make the film is because of the people that we met along the way on the divide premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in September of 2021. And it's only become more relevant as they've started showing the film across the country. I think that McGowan can really represent the United States in a lot of ways and how people have to contend with restricted access. This episode Leah and Maya talk about the long journey to capturing a community story. And also how making this film changed their lives. Here are filmmakers Leo Glen, and my in their own words. Hi, I'm Leah gallant and I'm one of the co directors of on the divide and I'm a filmmaker right now I'm living in Berlin. My name is Maya quavo. I'm the co director of on the divide. I'm from Berkeley, California, and I'm currently based here. As a Latina filmmaker, I felt really compelled to tell the story of reproductive healthcare and how that intersects with latinidad. I feel that there's a lot of stories about abortion that don't always often center, black or brown voices, and it was really important for me to share the stories of people who, you know, you don't often hear from who are really on the front lines of this movement. We thought, especially on this very divisive issue by sharing the perspectives of the three people that we chose, we knew that we could open up the conversation and expand where people think when they think about who.
"rio" Discussed on The Breakdown with NLW
"Welcome back to the breakdown with me and LW. It's a daily podcast on macro Bitcoin and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. The breakdown is sponsored by nexo dot IO, abra, NFTX, and produced and distributed by coins. What's going on guys, it is Friday January 14th and it has been a very good few days for Bitcoin. Now I'm not talking in terms of the price, although that's why you should care less about the price if you have the emotional capacity to do so. I am talking in terms of adoption and adoption and validation by some unexpected sources. First though, if you are enjoying the breakdown, please go subscribe to the show wherever you listen to podcasts if they have a rating system. I would love 5 stars. Give it a review or if you want to get deeper into the conversation, come on over and join the breakers Discord. You can find the link in the show notes or you can go to bit LY slash breakdown pod. And as always, a quick disclosure, in addition to them being a sponsor of the show, I also work on marketing with FTX. So let's start in Rio de Janeiro. But first, a little bit of background on Bitcoin cities. Over the course of the last year and change, Frances Suarez in Miami has become a model for what it looks like to compete for global talent, particularly tech talent as a mayor of a major city. Suarez is, of course, the mayor of Miami and has been working hard to attract talent companies. You name it to his city. Part of that has been an interest in Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies more broadly. They've launched a Miami coin built on stacks, and they have a lot of ideas and plans around how the city might accept tax payments in Bitcoin might put treasury into Bitcoin. Last February Suarez told coin desk that he plans to place a portion of the Miami treasury into Bitcoin, although those plans have as of yet not come to fruition. Well, this week, mayor Suarez was speaking at the Rio de Janeiro innovation week. And around his conversation, the mayor of Rio Eduardo paez had a pretty big announcement. Paya's announced that they were launching crypto Rio and as part of that they will be allocating 1% of their treasury into cryptocurrencies. Pedro Paolo the finance secretary said as well that they will also be accepting Bitcoin for tax payments and even applying discounts for those that pay with BTC. Paulo said, we are studying the possibility of paying taxes with an additional discount if you pay with bitcoins. You take the discount of the single quota of 7%, it would be 10% if you pay in Bitcoin. Let's study the legal framework so that we can do that. During real innovation week, they also discussed tax exemptions for tech companies and piez said the government has a role to play. And I think that is the operative line here. We live in a world full of easy transport and remote workers. In that world, there is increasingly a battle for geographies terrestrial areas to attract a different type of tax base at different types of business at different types of worker, a different type of citizen. The things that made cities desirable before haven't necessarily gone out the window, but there are a whole new set of tools in the arsenals of interested mayors interested governors, interested regional officers, et cetera, that they can deploy to try to attract more people to their region. COVID-19 shutdowns of course accelerated a huge number of trends that were already on the way, and they freed many, many people up to think differently and more broadly about the role of government in not just serving citizens but attracting citizens in creating the citizen base that you want to see. One of the people who has been most cataloging this trend is, of course, biology, srinivasan. He recently tweeted, it was easier to start Bitcoin than to reform the fed. It is easier to start a new city than to reform San Francisco. Many of these mayors are saying it seems with these sort of inducements and offerings, hey, you don't need to leave San Francisco to start a new city. Leave San Francisco to build a new city on top of the foundation that we already have. That's making a very interesting dynamic and it's frankly decentralizing and distributing the technology industry if nothing else already. Let's stay now in Latin America for just a second. This story isn't about government adoption, but it's still super positive. Strike the lightning company has launched in Argentina. Argentina is a country I know fairly well. My wife and I got married just over the border in Uruguay, and Argentina has a pretty big and thriving crypto community. In March of 2019 in the very, very depths of the bear market, I actually took my father in law to meet with a bunch of the crypto folks there. Back to this year, Argentina is having a rough go of it. And this is nothing new. Inflation could be up to 55% this year, the GDP is set to contract up to 12%, and there have been overall 8 currency crises since the Central Bank was formed. Now, argentines have long been big on the dollar. They're famous for what they call their blue markets. Indeed, in his announcement thread Jack mahler said that, quote, an estimated 10% of the physical stock of dollars in the world is within the Argentine financial system. Of course, that incredible demand for dollars and that lack of demand for Argentine pesos has tended to leave governments in that country to install more not less capital controls. As Muller's puts it, as Argentinians whose confidence and flee their peso for dollars, the country's reserves shrink. This has forced the government to devalue their currency, place restrictions on how much foreign currency citizens can hold and shut down dollar denominated payment networks. He goes on. With strike, the Argentinian people can now hold a stable cash balance that can be spent both instantly and with no fees. Cheap instant cash final global payments of any size for anyone to anywhere, even over Twitter. No inflation, no restrictions, financial freedom. Lynn Alden retweeted Jack's thread and summed it up pretty perfectly.

"But this is there are several options on the table right now. Okay. Let's say, congratulations on that. It's really cool. And that you say that's going to go on and likely 2025. Is that right? That's what we're aiming for. Yeah. And just for re listening, that's part of Rio tinto $7.5 billion announcement they made last week to reduce scope one and two emissions by 16.3 million tons per year by 2030. So clearly they had this in mind with there they made that announcement. That's an oddly specific number 16.3 million tons per year. Do you know what proportion or how much they plan to inject or how much the smelter emits? Well, this smelter emits a little over 300,000 tons per year. So it's a small portion of the 16.3 million. You've got the .3. That's right, yeah, yeah. So when we're done, it will be 16. Well, hopefully more. Yeah, I mean, we'll see how far we can go. I mean, usually, in most industries, these are demonstrated technologies. You can just go and choose a company, choose a service provider, and you can just start doing it. With an element melted like I mentioned, there is R and D involved. So we don't know exactly if they will be ready in 2025 when we will start operating the total terminal. But at least we will be there and the storage side will be operational. And we are ready when they are ready. Okay, I was going to use a hypothetical company as an example, but I'm going to use Rio tinto. I've enveloped CEO in a story read from Bloomberg about this, said, quote, beyond this, this project, we will look for opportunities to apply car fix as technology for decarbonization across Rio tinto's operations. All right, so let's say they come to you with a project in Australia. You know, a plant in Australia they want to decarbonize or smelter or something like that in Australia. Do you say great? Let's do the storage here. Or do you say, okay, let me find you a ship, and we'll take it to a hub at the coda terminal. First, we'll see if we can inject it on site. It's always the cheapest way to go. And the most economical way to go. So if, for some reason, that turns out to be not favorable. And it's not only about the chemistry of the rocks. It's also about the permeability. Can you get all this fluid into the underground? Is there a space for it? I mean, this is also a big concern. I mean, Australia has a hot dry rock.

"I'm standing. In the middle of the rio grande perplex somewhat stupefied by the image in front of me. You're hearing are least hernandez who covers border immigration for the post and she's physically standing right between the us and mexico hundreds if not thousands of people are moving in front of me. Sort of trudging through a swift but low current carrying things on their head. Like boxes of food or in some cases mattresses. Today we're going to take you to the southwestern border where thousands of mostly he should migrants have crossed the grand into texas. They've made camp under an international bridge even as the us tries to deport them by the planeload from the newsroom of the washington post this is post reports. I'm emma chalk off. It's wednesday. September twenty second in del rio texas on the us border. Thousands of people have crossed over for mexico after surrendering themselves to border patrol. They're just waiting while their papers are being processed. But it's an amazing image of just thousands of people in these makeshift shelters underneath the bridge surrounded by federal and state law enforcement. That encampment is already shrinking. Immigration officials are starting to clear the area and state and federal officials are trying to keep people out. we put Hundreds of texas department of public safety cars then created a steel wall. Texas governor greg. Abbott has ordered miles of cars to try to physically block people from entering the country. A steel wall of dps vehicles. That prevented anybody from crossing. That damn seen people walk across. Walking into the state of texas there have been some surreal photos. Circulating images of border patrol agents on horseback reaching out to grab migrants slopping. The most brains driving them back into the river. The biden administration has been airlifting planeloads of people back to their countries of origin. Mostly haiti places in south america. That number is expected to double today now. There had been three or four flights that we're going out each day now. We're up to seven flights a day full of people hundreds of people on these airplanes to a country that really is in no position to be able to assist and receive these people after a series of crises had walloped the island nation in recent months. This was pretty unprecedented. The context is that camps like this exist in mexico right now with thousands of people. There's one in tijuana. There is one in three nossa and there was one until february in matamoros mexico. These are all cities that are on the other side of us cities and this is just the first time that we've seen this number this magnitude of people on the us side but this has been happening in mexico for a long time you know. Because of the various policies at the united states has employed under trump under biden. It's created sort of these like corking the bottle if you will. And how many migrants are we talking about. You know waiting there. As especially i guess. A few days ago when it was at the peak at its peak. I heard numbers as high as eighteen. Thousand is probably somewhere between fourteen thousand and eighteen thousand with more on the way that little asterisk. 'cause there again there had been dozens of reports from from mexico. That more buses were on their way right now. It seems to have been reduced to under ten thousand and like where are all these folks coming from. Why are they leaving. Why are they making this journey. Well they're coming from a variety of places but primarily at least in my experience in talking to migrants. Many of them are coming from south america. These are folks who had migrated years ago after the twenty ten earthquake. In haiti that devastated the island nation. They sought other opportunities in south. America and countries like chile and brazil. Were at first receiving these migrants and giving them identification papers they were able to work in some cases but the pandemic and the devastation. It has wreaked on some of those economies certainly pushed down pressure on these immigrants who are at the bottom rung of society in these places and it was enough the racism discrimination The joblessness to push these folks to continue northward to the united states where they have family. Can you describe a little more with. The scene is like on the ground there. Right at the border. I have not put is on the camp itself but what i can tell you and what you can see from. Various vantage points is just this. It's this huge pasture dirt. You know this is. This is brush country. This is the middle of the chihuahua. Desert the river runs through it. But this is You know high desert country essentially and so it's a patch dirt where folks are using correo. Cain which is like bamboo like sexually invasive plant. It's pretty tall. And what they're doing is taking those. The the canes stripping off like the leaves and making almost like teepee structures with them to to create shelters or to create huts. I understand from several migrants that the children are suffering. the most. there just isn't much space there it's dirty it's dusty earlier in the week when i was in the rio grande. Folks are using the river as a place to clean themselves. People were actually bathing in the river with soap. They had bought from mexico. Because this place was just so dirty hygiene is not great. You know the government has brought him portable toilets. But you know one of the migrants told me that. I mean it's just foul. I imagine thousands of people using maybe a dozen to two dozen portable toilets. I'm sure there's more than that but you know it's just not not a great place to have thousands of people and yet this was the choice that they were making. They'd rather be you know in the united states trying to go through this process. So who've you've been talking to what. What kind of stories have you heard. I heard from several folks. The i was a guy named wendy. We jam it today and wendy had traveled from from chile. He's thirty one. He's a father of a of a young daughter three-year-old. i encountered him on the spillway. In two other kunia in mexico he'd been in the camp his wife and child were still in the camp but he was there because he needed a second to just collect himself and to cry and he didn't want to cry in front of his daughter and wife. But you know it was sort of a moment of release for him because he had made this incredible journey from chile where he tried to make it work for him and his family. He's an information systems like computer engineer and had been studying law in in haiti before they were forced to leave as a family and he was just telling you know if the united states just just gave us a chance rate i would pay taxes. You know i would be buying goods and services in the united states you know our presence would be a boon. I mean he's literally going through all of this and its head trying to figure out what the best argument that can be made in order to stay and.

Security had to close the port of entry in del rio because thousands of people are living under the bridge as you saw and the only reason is a big story is because they got those photographs so the network did cover the del rio story the three of them last night but i wanted independent person on the ground and anna gear.

So my guess about this book being published right at the end of when it was possible to publish this book. Looks like it was correct because the year after it came out when people had lots of suspicions about these sorts of studies. Being replicable conman wrote an open email to his colleagues. Who had done a bunch of this work. And i think this quote from this e mail is astounding so just going to read this. This is from common in an open email as all of you know of course questions have been raised about the robustness of priming results. Your field is now. The poster child for doubts about the integrity of psychological research. People have now attached to question mark to the field and it is your responsibility to remove it. All i have personally at stake is that i recently wrote a book that emphasizes priming research as a new approach to the study of associative memory. Count me as a general believer. My reason for writing this letter is that i see a train wreck looming. So that's where the title of this article comes from. Do you think it might have been your fault.

This episode will be released either auto or during those things and it would make sense that we will talk about them on the show but we con because we needed to record this one couple of weeks earlier than usual episode out of time to me is defined by the future past tense of speaking yup. Right we will have right. That's what that's what an episode out of time. We will have had done this thing here. We go then. If you wanna get into this. We will have had an incredible poster made for this episode or yeah well maybe so. It's actually the imperfect future past tense. Maybe we will have had an incredible poster made. We don't know because the poster will have to relate to the contents of the show which as we're recording. We have no idea what that's going to be. And if the poster will come out well incredible artists siege roland. Who i've used before for my putt composters. Yeah he's walking will be working have worked on this up for us but cannot stop for another three days from today So we have no idea what it's going to be like bought. I expect it's going to be great. The poster is going to be an awesome rio heist. I'm looking forward to seeing it and it is one of these funny things of like. Oh yes we will be trying this out and seeing if we could make a fun poster for the episode and we don't know although of course if you hearing this now future us has decided to keep this part in so there definitely is a link but if you're hearing this it has happened. We'll have or will happen if it doesn't happen. This won't be in the show and if you are still hearing this because you're spying on us in some creepy way. That's episode out of time realized i said why are we doing this. Why have we created this terrible time paradox for ourselves. I think it's mostly my fault but also you were very willing to go along with the and this is one of those classic gray has a problem. Mike is very happy with the solution. Yeah so you. You are in the world of podcast thon planning.

Bright which looks most likely to me right now to be occurring in the week of the puck pastathon. Perfect timing is it feels like a tough time rough tough time for me.

"Were doing this with many many bands to be fifty. Two's as well they had. Ap's if you wanna take a chance on a band can pay a little bit less money and that kinda helped. So they got the carnival ep out there and then people started plated so it was such a long process but date david really was instrumental in saying. Hey you know. He didn't do much to it but i interviewed him. He was like we didn't do a terrible amount to it. You know we rebalanced it because he was really good at keeping the essence of made the song great and just kind of bringing out different elements of it is like. I don't recall anything very difficult about it. It was just one of those things where we worked with very straightforward and simple because it was not that the song is simple but he was like it was a really good experience basically. I definitely hear it. One of my complaints and i said this to john early when we were talking to durant durant i said what am i issues with. That i record is the thinness of the mix. I said john taylor such a great bass player. But i can barely hear his base work. But this remix stuff. That david kirshenbaum did. He clearly brought all of that to the front. Same with andy. Taylor's guitar work so it was much more upfront. A grooved an rocked and the same time. And obviously i heard these songs billion over. So i can kind of ab test them in my mind. And no and herald subtleties that. Come out but for rock radio at the time bringing that guitar a little farther up in the mix may have sealed the deal for at least rock radio and say okay there the guitars now. We can play it. That's exactly it. What did rock radio. what could they relate to. They could relate to louder guitars. They could relate to grooves keyboards still a little bit. Still benefit you know in. Nick rhodes influences. I mean he loved work. He loved brian eno and so he has. He's really amazing. Groundbreaking cool sounding keyboard parts which radio again. It was like but you know but they understood. Guitarist named understood baselines and so yet making them kind of full like that and just just sort of kind of tricking people into this is bad. All right that helps so much. Because i mean andy's influences he loved you know everything. Radio play you sell the van halen black sabbath the infamous seventy eight uk to he liked jeff back you like youth richards jimi hendrix. I believe so. He liked all of those influences. That people in america liked definitely shows on their on their records. Insurance it's a subtle thing but for those whose ears tuned to that lane. The upcoming rocker. So i hear it very much. I'm like yeah i can. I can hear this guy. His influences as refuge. And all that stuff so we go to john for his last question. Oh john and he. Can you talk a bit about the iconic rio album cover by patrick nagel now when i bought the record back in one thousand nine hundred eighty two when it came out. You couldn't escape patrick. Nagel prints they were everywhere in southern california. One of my college roommates at san diego state even drew the rio album. Cover for me as a birthday present. It was everywhere now. That's a brilliant package for a sophomore album..

"Some people who realize i mentioned specifically W msn cleveland aor powerhouse and their uh john gorman and tiddly who were there john gorman especially he checked out mtv in he. He saw the potential for he was like. I see what this is showing the other aspect of radio. I don't think i was able to get deeply into the book about this was. Mtv was getting preferential treatment and mtv was getting videos before radio. Radio did not like that. They viewed it as competition. And that's so funny in hindsight because it will fees into each other. You know people are discovering new music on mtv than they wanna hear it on the radio exemplary. It should work together but at the time there was that little bit of divisiveness and everyone was kind of at odds because as we know what the music industry in general changes hard and very looked on with skepticism. Or another question for john. So he's a question about duran duran's videos. Every mtv sensor literally considered videos for rio and hungry like the wolf softcore porn that did the band pander to this notion on purpose or were the offended to some degree by that inference and again. I'll take my answer off the air. Thank you john any you know. I think he might be mixing that up with girls on film. So girls on film was from the band's debut and it was like fall of eighty one not far before rio came out girls on phil. That's how d- rand got a lot of attention in america got i. That's the video where there was nudity. There were some kind of suggestive situations. Go at on and that little bit even even now when you watch it. You're like this is pretty steamy. This is a little too people kind of remember that it had to be edited. And i don't think there's ever been a definitive answer about exactly who edited. What's at how much to be edited out. I think there's a bunch of things floating around but the whole thing about music video at that time. Is that people were just trying. Think people were just sort of mississippi. What would sticks. Let's just try this idea because it wasn't really established. The uk use music videos dating back to the mid seventies with queen. And you had kate bush doing some really groundbreaking things but there wasn't really a culture of music video In america yet..

"Engagement with a context. Probably the agent knows about this and probably then information is stored somewhere on crm as well but the decision maker being sealed general manager. Whoever that is probably not bad at and he's probably so disconnected from the reality of customers at doesn't even noticing the the most terrible thing about it is most brands. Now take a voc approach voice of consumer right. They will send surveys. But i guarantee that most of the time to serve as just to get some nps score or set score and just tell we've improved against last month's or compared to last year and that's about it but there's so much more to that so that's where it's the cx leader comes in the picture because he's role more than actually giving the direction and division of you see that's part of it but is i is to connect the different teams and get the bigger picture because everyone works in silos once again. Everyone i'm into contact center. I'm in marketing. I'm in south. And then many companies many employees. Have this This terrible habit of saying not my job. S no my job. I'm not gonna fix it because stomach problem So this ex-leader leader has this role of connecting people in making sure everything is is a line. Do you think that's the magic bullet. That's coming that as businesses start to engage with cx experts within their own organization. Chief customer officer. And i sorta titles that they are really going to take the reins and laid the transformation. Because i think you're not different. Departments as silos aren't really achieve anything. Someone needs to unify. yes and no. I don't think this is silver bullet. A great start You need more than that. You need the right person. Obviously on top of that unique to give them the right authority. Because there's just not enough to please your investors in the market to say. Hey we have a c. officer graham what.
