Sachia Vickery on raising positive awareness
"ALL RIGHT WELCOME TO TENNIS DOT COM podcast I'm one of your host. Nina Pantic joined as always with Reno, Falconi. Hey, guys. How's it going? Our special guests is w pro Sasha Victory Sasha welcome. It's awesome to have you here. You're just twenty five years old. You've been ranked as high as number seventy three currently around one fifty eight winner of three i-if titles, and you know you've been sounding off a lot on twitter. You've been on active on instagram. We have a lot of stuff we want to cover with you, but first of all. Where in the world are you? And how has the shutdown Ben for you? I'm actually at home in Boca. Raton Florida right now. and it's been really nice gone to spend time with my family but I'm kind of at the point where I'm ready to get back out there. Playing at you know practicing normal again. I love being home, which is such a great change, but I've just been trying to train as much as I can. just hit with some girls that are in the area, and that's pretty much it. Do. You have a coach right now that you're kind of working with is one of those things that you're slowly getting back into practice mode, or have you already been practicing a lot? Yeah I have I have a coach I work with. He's He's French and he's come down to work with me all the time. and yeah, just slowly getting back into it I played a couple of exhibitions in Atlanta last month I got to kind of. Play in a feel for where I was and be on court again. Play matches so been doing that. Was it wild without any fans and stuff like that. What's restrictions the same as kind of what we're expecting from upcoming tournaments? Yeah. I think probably exactly the same. It was really weird, and it just felt like I was literally playing a practice match. which is what which is what it was was it was? Very Weird. There was a there was one empire, but he was sitting Super Far Away. We couldn't really come that close futuristic on opposite sides. Side did kind of get a feel like what will be in the tournament coming up in. It was definitely a little strange. So one of the things that I've noticed with a few players and is their motivation. Level can kind of go like this enduring the quarantine. It's just been up and down. You know like we've been told two months two months from now two months from now. Yeah, what's your motivation been like for the last couple of months? Yeah well general motivation it is a little bit up and down with the tactic of the tour just in general, but for the past few months. Yeah I! Think the hardest part. was just you know knowing how much I should train like how much I should do if I should? Maybe less because I'll. Then I'll be more fresh when I start playing again or do more than I'll be. You know in super good shape, so it's just finding the balance between that. With no exact Kinda, start date and no calendar it's. Up in the air, so I'm just doing the best I can just like. Everybody is I'm sure? There's been somebody announcements about the tourist coming back in August and the US. Open has gotten some flak because there's not going to be a qualifying event at least as of now in June. Everything is changing by the day, but the initial initial plan is no qualifying. What was your reaction because it's kind of? A grossly unfair. Yeah no I'll just. I'll just speak really freely. I'll say I think it was the total slap in the face to so many players who depend on playing slam and you know that really depend on that. You know the competition and the prize money and you know everybody's been going through this rough time, but I just feel like. Prioritizing. The top players, which of course they deserve to be there. They deserve to play these tournaments but I just feel it was just really a hard low for the players that worked so hard to be in qualities, and they really depend on that time of the year for a lot in their career so I personally think it's it's a little bit unfair, and I think now. I read something where they're allowed to bring. Two or three people with them, so that potentially could have been an entire qualities drought. You would have just cut back by one person each flare so. I'm not obviously I. Don't really agree with it and I. Think definitely a little bit more could have been done for. The lower ranked players. I've also been hearing A few people talk about how qualifiers are still like. If you would have been in qualities, you're actually going to get a check yet. So what? What is what's the amount? Do you know the amount of that check? So I think like the first round qualifying. It's normally maybe ten thousand, five hundred somewhere around that range. But I've also read stuff wear. Maybe if we don't play, they may Give us some of the prize. Money I'm not really sure how it's to be I've been reading the W. T. updates that they email us every week. so I think that's the amount but I'm not really sure about the specific so what they're planning to do. From a personal level I'm curious. How excited are you to go back on tour? Not knowing that you know there's going to be not only changes Day In and day out, but just having the US Open like actually no qualifiers in the French Open I think there will be qualifiers yet. We still don't know really ITF Calendar. How are you excited to go back or part of us? Just like what the heck is happening. I think yeah, it's a little bit mix of both I. I am excited to get back playing, but you know like I said earlier just we have no direction really I don't know. There's no it calendars I. Don't know if I can start with the lower level tournaments and then play French Open they'll be a warm up or I. Don't know what's going to happen, but I think. I think the WPA T. A.. They have been doing a good job. You know trying their best to manage everything, but I think one thing that they've kind of lacked was update in the players. With things going like there I feel like they've been very favorable to the higher end players and they get information a lot quicker than we do like. I had to read somewhere on somebody's tweet. That wasn't going to be equality's before. We've got emails So you know a lot of people they start planning for that? You know they people need time to plan and prepare to arrange coaches. Book things so I think that's one part where definitely? They should try and do a little bit better.

All about Section 230: What It Does and Doesn't Say
"Hi everyone welcome to this week's special episode of sixteen minutes on the news, our show where we cover the headlines from our vantage point in tech, and covered tech trends, offering analysis frameworks, explainers and more I'm sewn. All your host and today's episode is special, not just because at three times sixteen minutes long, but this is our very first time on the show now thirty two episodes in bringing on a special outside guest. Our topic is section two thirty of the Communications Decency Act, which makes sure. Sure that interactive websites are not liable for their users content as their distributors, not producers of content, and so we also cover the recent news around twitter and the president's tweets, and the subsequent Executive Order Unquote Preventing Online censorship all from this week, which is also all bang out against the broader, more profound cultural context of George Floyd. Minnesota and way beyond and this episode we do a deeper dive on the technology and Policy Aspects of platforms and content moderation, including an explainer on the evolution. Evolution of section, two thirty, and all the key nuances of the debates around it and content moderation to understand, my special guest is Mike Mas- nick, founder and editor in chief of tech dirt, which is a leading tech news and analysis website and my longtime go to source for these topics he also by the way, recently launched new section, dedicated to tech and covid coverage as well as a new form with different voices, called the greenhouse, which focuses on tricky tech topics and lots of the. The trade offs involved like privacy and so on you can find both of those at Tech. DIRT DOT COM, so that's the INTRO and why? This is a special three x episode of sixteen minutes. Let me now kick things off by asking Mike. Since the premise of the shows, the tease apart. What's hype? What's real and to break down and explain what section to thirty does and doesn't say especially since the Broader Communications Decency Act Mike has been around since one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety six. The laws actually very short and very simple and very straightforward, and I should note that the Communications Decency Act itself did have. Things that I did, but all of that was determined to be unconstitutional. So the only thing that survives is section two thirty. There was a big lawsuit ACLU versus Reno in the late nineties, and that throughout most of the communications, Decency Act is unconstitutional. The thing that remained was to thirty so what section to thirty does it really does two things, and they're somewhat related, and they're both incredibly important to the functioning of the modern Internet the first thing that it does is it puts the liability on the person actually violating the law, so if someone goes onto. Onto a website and says something that is defamatory or otherwise violates the law, the liability for that action belongs on the person who is speaking and not the platform or site that is hosting that content. The second thing that it does is that it says if a website chooses to moderate its content or anything that is put on the site. Then it is not liable for those moderation choices I'm so glad you're bringing that up because this is the number one thing I wanted to start with which is the flip side of it, not just the protection. Protection, but the fact that they can moderate whatever they want, so can you actually break down Mike? What does that mean so where it came from? Which I think is important is to give sort of the history very quickly is that there were series of lawsuits in the early nineties that tried to hold Internet services that had moderated some content, and the were defamation cases effectively brought up the most famous one is stratton oakmont versus prodigy, and as a little fun aside. Stratton oakmont was a financial firm that was immortalized in the movie The wolf of Wall. Wall Street, that's a fun fact. Yes, and Stratton. OAKMONT got upset. Because people in prodigies message boards were accusing the company of being up to no good, and so they sued prodigy, and a court said that prodigy was liable for the libellous statements, because prodigy positioned itself as a family friendly service that would moderate content, and because it moderated some content to try and take down cursing or porn anything that it felt was inappropriate that anything it left up according to the judge, it was now liable for as if it had written that content itself and that. FREAKED OUT! People in Congress namely the time to members of the House Chris Cox. A Republican and Ron Wyden a Democrat, and they put together section to thirty to say wait, that's crazy. If a website wants to moderate content to create for example, a family friendly environment, it shouldn't get sued for the content that chose not to take down. And so that section of CBA two-thirty is designed to make sure that any website can moderate content how it sees fit in good faith to present the content in a way that meets with the goals of the service
Brees says he 'completely missed the mark' in flag comments
"Drew, brees wrote an instagram apology today It's very long a read a little bit. In an attempt to talk about respect, unity and solidarity centered around the American flag in the National Anthem I made comments that were insensitive in completely missed the mark on the issues. We're facing right now. In our country, they lacked awareness and any type of compassion or empathy. Instead those words have become divisive and hurtful. He went on to say. He stands with black community in the fight against systematic systemic racial injustice and police brutality while supporting the creation of real policy change John Your reaction to the apology well. It's not me. That needs to buy his apology. It's black people and tomorrow. I'm doing the morning show tomorrow I'm paying off that Oh. Yeah, Long Game I'm doing this show with key and L Z so. I was listening this morning to those guys and key and l zero done with him. They don't want to hear his apology and I think that's probably a typical reaction. From most black people because I think what drew brees showed was something that you know not that. I wouldn't call drew brees racist. They might I. wouldn't I wouldn't put that label on anybody, but I would say he doesn't get it right and I think that's part of the problem. Is that a lot of white people don't get it. That the protest had nothing to do with the flag may to me. That's not a hard concept to grasp, but apparently for others it is. And so I thought the reaction and I think drew. BREES has a chance here with how he handles himself moving forward. For this to be a teachable moment for white people I think Black People Reno. They know what's up. They know they've been feeling this way for a long time. We haven't been listening I think the events of the past two weeks are GonNa make people listen. They are tired of preaching the same thing over over and having us. Listen to them and I think that if drew brees now makes an example out of himself. If I was if I was in charge of drew brees, this career, I would have them do a media tour and the first thing I would say. Is You know what I screwed this up and I think I'm an example of what a lot of white people think that they don't understand the full plate of this problem

COVID-19 is pushing notaries into the digital age
"To create wills online for quite some time but the thing is that after you create a will you probably have to get it. Notarized and that is usually an in-person transaction recent years lots of states have made laws to allow digital motorization and the cove in nineteen outbreak has pushed more states to do the same as more and more people are making wills online one of those people is Meghan Bowen about six weeks ago. She was home in Reno Nevada when she started to feel sick. I started to get a fever and a headache shortness of breath and thought. Oh no what if I have this? She's forty five with two kids. Who are both teenagers? She's divorced and she just never gotten around to creating a will or medical directive is enough to make me go wow. I'm not being very responsible for my kids. Future need to clean this up so and called Nicole. Harvey an attorney. Based in Reno who specializes in estate. Planning Nevada. Had a stay at home order in place and Harvey's office was closed so for the first time in my practice we're doing electronic wills which entails remote notary. Nevada is one of twenty three states that have permanent online motorization laws. In place. Notaries in those states use an online platform validate clients identity by comparing their face on video. Chat to their photo ideas. And asking a series of questions like you'd see a credit check. One question might be zero are five addresses which one of these or you associated with in nineteen sixty eight. That's Bill Anderson Vice President of government affairs at the National Notary Association. A trade group then the lawyer the clients and the notary all meet on video the client signs the documents with mouse clicks. Everything's recorded the online notary platform. Say It's just as secure as an in person transaction so it's easy in those twenty three states. The other states are rushing out solutions. Many of the state executive orders put in place temporary procedures for being able to notarize documents using video conference type solutions like Zoom. Another twenty three states. Now let notaries do their jobs using a combination of video and document sharing Anderson says these emergency versions are a little less secure. But it's still something and the Senate Judiciary Committee is considering a bill that would allow online notification. One downside remote motorization costs more because of platform an extra licensing fees. The National Notary Association says the National Average is twenty five dollars to get something notarized online in person services top out more like fifteen bucks but doing everything on. Line can also make the difficult task of creating a will a lot less intimidating. Here's Megan Bowen again. I Pictured Estate Planning and Trusts in Wales long meetings in back and forth and collecting lots of pieces of paper in reviewing things over and over again and it was so much simpler than that and also on the plus side. Bowen is feeling fine now and hopefully won't need that will anytime soon

Sharpen his wife Patricia. Designed and built the t around his six foot four frame and the rudder. Pedals were not adjustable even with cushions and bolsters. I was barely able to reach the rudder pedals. I was unable to perform a magneto check as the next. He slowly crept forward. During the run-up this of course was unacceptable. So I taxi back and inform sharp and the crew of my predicament hill. I returned to Moriarty to contemplate plan. B The annex t was subsequently flown to Moriarty where rudder pedal extensions were designed and installed on April twenty-seventh. Twenty seventeen I finally had a chance to fly the annex t since the winds were forecast to increase hill and I met at hills hanger early to get a leg up on the day and give me a chance to see how sharp's racer flew. The annex t has no forward visibility when being taxied so a lipstick camera was located on the right main landing gear in conjunction with a small video screen and the cockpit so the pilot could see ahead hill. Followed me out to runway two six to both assist and observe my flight. As soon as I applied power I was able to raise the tail on directional control was never an issue. I remained on the ground. Perhaps a bit longer than needed which may have been a function of the elevator. Trim position on lift off. The tee seemed very well behaved. I climbed out to the South West in order to get a better feel for how it behaved before returning to land. Although the aircraft was not unruly the air certainly was so I decided to cut the flight short and return to terra. Firma and aircraft incident or accident is almost never just one thing. It is a series of connected dots that when added up can lead to an untenable situation or worse the first dot manifested itself. Unbeknownst to me as I enter the downwind leg it had only been a few days before that I had flown the glider clubs Piper pointy tow plane. When doing so I would fly a close tight traffic pattern in hindsight. I should have flown a pattern commensurate with the speeds. I would be flying the Reno. Racer that is a one hundred fifty miles per hour on final and somewhat faster on downwind and base geared down to in the green and I started working to slow the next T- because my proximity to the final approach was far too close. I banked steeper as I watched myself fly through. Final DOT number two. I must have added a touch of bottom rudder dot number three at that point mortality Hubbard a watchful bird of prey. And the next thing I knew the next departed in a snapple. I would like to claim. It was superior airmanship skill and reflexes. That kept me from dying that day but I know better. My Guardian Angel was watching over me and only by the grace of God that I make the control inputs. That allowed me to recover at about two hundred feet or so Steve Hill was privy to all of the above and this is what he observed. The aircraft disappeared from my view and hearing to the West. After a few minutes I heard the aircraft approaching from the West and her bills radio call of left down wind for runway. Two six with gear. The aircraft appeared to me to be at a normal altitude. But maybe a little too close to the runway by this time the winds on the ground had picked up and we're gusting a little bit. The winds were mostly aligned with the runway but may have had a southern component. My perception was such that. I almost called bill on the radio. Remind Him to maintain one hundred and fifty miles per hour pattern speed. But I did not. I watched the aircraft perform a left turn from down wind base and the bank angle seemed a little steep to me. The aircraft continued at northerly heading with left-wing down at less than five hundred feet. Ag L. suddenly it appeared to snapple. All the way around and recover right I was looking into the morning sun and did not have an ideal view but I believe that the aircraft continued in a roll to the left. The maneuver happened extremely quickly. Literally in the blink of an eye. It happened so quickly that I was at that point. Not sure of what to make of it. All only that I was in a descending attitude on northbound heading and then if I did not initiate a pull up I would be making ground contact with ample speed in hand about one hundred and seventy or so. I started climbing westbound. Turn for an upwind leg while I contemplated my course of action. I reentered the down wind with substantially more distance from the runway. This time the pattern reflected the speed at which I was flying. The Annex T and the turn from base to final was made at a comfortable bank angle and speed once properly stabilized. The T flu like it was on rails. There was a bit of a southwind so I touched down left wing low as I wield the little racer onto the ground. Shortly after securing the aircraft we were in contact with sharp who was gracious enough to forgive me my transgressions and the fact that almost destroyed his wonderful creation. Sharp offer a five page explanation. Absolving me of blame but I knew better. The fault was entirely mine. The takeaways from this incident are many but mostly the recognition of how easily one can allow the deck to be against oneself. It's important to reflect on the various types of risks identifiable acceptable unacceptable and most important on identified remembering that uncertainty is always there hovering over the horizon awaiting the arrival of the unsuspecting pilot. Who has allowed his or her situation awareness to go by the wayside and for identified risk to enter the equation. I've found the episode humbling. A stark reminder of what a lack of attention to detail can lead to reality had returned with soul searing clarity. I had violated a number of tenants. Those irrefutable physics of flight and aerodynamics that cannot be violated and yet I lived to tell the tale
Supporting Women Leaders
"The share of women in the House and Senate has increased over time. But it's still well below the share of women in the US population. And if you dig deeper. Congress looks even less representatives women of color make up eighteen percent of the US population but before the two thousand eighteen midterms the accounted for just seven percent of Congress and LGBT women. Make up about two point five percent of the US population but there are only two openly lgbt women in Congress that's less than one percent even with the recent wins by women candidates in the two thousand eighteen midterms. There's still a long way to go before. They're fully represented. I look at someone like just send our during the prime minister in New Zealand. I the way that she dealt with the terrorist attack on her country. Yeah the way that she wouldn't name the terrorists that was you know. She's amazing. Amazing. We will not talk about their names and then also the way that she's dealing with this crisis she is incredibly humble and that and just real like you really feel like she's telling you the truth this authenticity. Just I think is is one of her great strengths and I think just very clear. Nobody panicked. This is what we're going to do and we're going to do better for. I think she's really good also at hope and inspiration which people need people made in times like best. They need to know. We're all in this together and we're going to get back and we can do this and done things like this before we've done things that have been harder than before. Did you see that? The princess in Sweden actually took an online nursing class and entered into the frontline fighting this pandemic. It's the most amazing thing I was like. This is brilliant. She's a princess and she was like Nope. I'm going to take an online class and I'm going to really make a difference and it's just spectacular. The majority of frontline healthcare workers around the world. Are Women. Yeah actually in China. I think the numbers like ninety percent methods. And then there's also that stat that the country is that have been least hit as far as numbers go with Kobe. Nineteen have women leadership. Yeah so I'm wondering if you could shed a little light on how the challenges women face around the globe are maybe similar or different. Well certainly you've been a huge champion around Combating Violence Against Women and sexual assault and harassment. And that is in my mind. The biggest challenge women face I. Yeah globally there is no country no community no religion no social economic background of women anywhere on Earth who are not affected by gender based violence. That's just full stop. That is the only issue that seems to get worse. Not Better over time right. We're going to get more. Women elected to political office. More women are going to start and grow business. People are going to see. Oh Wow this is great for the economy okay. Yes let's keep funding. You can see steps forward on many of these issues but on violence against women. I mean the harder hit. Humanity is the deeper violence against women growth. Right now with this crisis in China triple. They had triple the cases really at the epicenter of Code. They had triple A. Cases of domestic violence in the height. They're of the virus and that is not a winston. It is a fact that when people lose their jobs and anxiety and stress is running high. That will be my own skin for that. There will be domestic violence. Bounce GonNa Children as well and then of course you add to that. Being locked down with an abuser or higher. Yeah it's horrifying. Yeah so to me. I mean that's that is the biggest issue and of course it takes different forms in different places you know in the DRC have rape as a weapon of war and other countries ravaged by war like Syria or Iraq in places like Afghanistan. You have girls being hung just because they're girls girls being burned with acid late certainly by strangers by partners by boyfriends acquaintances college. Campus Violence Sexual violence child marriage. Honor Crimes Cream genital mutilation. It takes on a different look in different places but we run. Something called an emergency assistance. Fund FOR EXTREME FORMS OF GENDER based violence is called Voices Against Violence Fund. And we will open up the fund and literally the cases that it's small bits of money that we can get out the door within twenty four to forty eight hours to quickly help a woman get back on her feet. Nadia Murad. Who is the is eating woman who escaped Isis in Iraq? Acting twenty fourteen. She was actually one of the first people to receive one of these. Just very quick fusions of financial support to help her family and she get healthcare relocation. You know her brothers had been killed. Most of her family was killed. The bill back something and I'm allowed to tell her story because she tells her story and obviously winning a Nobel peace prize a number of years later for suing Isis. But the fun that we continue to run at a number of cases is just through the roof and we you know quite frankly. We need more money to fund. Yeah believe me I would rather be preventing these Reno. And why should we were throwing money at a problem rather than trying to get it a solution but we're doing both let me ask you this. The numbers are just staggering. But do the numbers go down when women have power. I'm thinking about just even in the United States and domestic violence and violence against women and we have some really incredible women that are fighting in Congress and Senate and yet these numbers are still mind blowing. You know we fight so hard to get a seat at the table and then I'm wondering. Do you see changes within the community. Do you see that numbers go down. What is the tangible evidence of that? This is this is shifting or changing. Well certainly I think when the economy is strong right when other things are stable. That is certainly better. But that shouldn't have to be the case. Things be better never should be that humanity. I think we're not challenges. Honestly with violence against women is what I would call. One of the women leaders will work with called the silent. Majority silent majority is the majority of men who are good and who believed that bounced. Women should never stand but they don't do anything about it I well. I don't know anybody. You know one that. Maybe they don't know enough about it. They don't think there's a place for them to be part of the fight or minimal. And I think it's about. How do we engage those men to recognize that? This is a human problem and that they're part of the solution they have to be part of citation otherwise things will never change. Yeah so I think you see grace forward when Powerful men or influential men get it and they don't just get it and like a check the box way but they they really get it on a fundamental level and every decision that they make it somewhere in the calculus of how they're making those decisions and that's a big piece queer on an awards program here called the voices of solidarity and it's really about honoring those great guys who are in the fight. I love that and often risking their livelihood. We all met all around the world. There's some great. Ceo's and leaders that we've honored but there are also different young guys. I don't know if you're familiar with the Nail Polish undercover Keller's. No that into drank and it will turn a color. If you drink has been Mufi right yes and so these guys came up with this formula basically so that the nail Polish we turn a color if it was and now there's you just young college guys that they had a personal experience with a friend who had been drugged and raped in college and they decided to do something about it. It's kind of engaging men at different levels in doing good. I think that can make a huge difference.

R. T. expansion project which means extending up public transit services upgrading infrastructure vital to midtown before our show today I signed up for a lot of the bands the biggest gripe was congestion but the biggest hopes in the survey were light rail the widening of I. fifteen between Las Vegas and Los Angeles and the completion of ira Levin's so I was wondering what your own congressional priorities are as well through this year and obviously we're fully supportive of what the folks in southern Nevada want to do because quite frankly we want need their support for what's going on in the north I eleven is not something that's going to be built day after tomorrow even next fiscal year something like that but the planning intervals the setting that now that that route is phenomenal because usually in about a we don't have that luxury okay here's where it's coming so when county commissions or city councils are doing their planning and zoning staff they can keep that in in mind to do it intelligently M. as far as the other part we kind of touched on it a minute ago which was listen you you want to keep growing in a responsible way and so people five from time to time over growing or what response all means but what that means is what comes with that is there's been things that come with that but one of the challenges that comes with that is you have to plan for ten percent more vehicles been on your own you have to plan for ten percent more people wanting to use your public transportation system you have to plan for ten percent more people wanting to come and go through your airport all those things so that's why it's one of those deals where we've had some great news lately you can never say mission accomplished I don't know and because you always have to think the word growth and then everything you're planning here right I can tell you that most local and state government people said okay that's what we're going to be and we're going to grow up and there's going to be no more growth that would be a phenomenally impactful thing for budgets at the city county and state level no I do want to say a little trivia regarding interstate eleven little trivia for any audience member who doesn't know this the eightieth session of the Nevada legislature passed a bill designating the entire I live in round of that as the Purple Heart I way and that took effect July first little trivia they are you know regarding those four components in the US news and World Report study commute time road quality bridge quality public transit no one put you on the spot what what which of these is the biggest concern of your district constituents well I think probably that the commute time is is the one that everybody experiences every darn day of what we're probably going to cheat a little bit of bridge on bridge but it's like that's because we don't know how much water to stay but what the heck what they can do any advantage we can get a quite frankly if people are commuting to and from work we were there just driving around town to refer to run errands it takes forever and you feel like you got to fight your way from one side of town to the other back and forth to work every day that's a phenomenal indicator in terms of quality what can be done legislatively well quite frankly when when you talk about a lot of its local and that's why you're you're RTC folks are we're gonna encouraged we're gonna encourage you to use public transit you say what's that mean that does it what it does is you find ways to make it easier and more economical for people to use public transit then it is forever to get their car and drive down there and go find a parking space and all that other sort of thing and and you know what I mean we're not done but you know what that they're doing a good job with what we've experienced so far and what they've got to work and when we return the road ahead what.

"My useful on Reno what's your overview Linda about twenty twelve you happy about it one twenty twenty rather twenty twelve is sometime ago I'm all right we're December that by which they did it's the year of the come up that are revelation my big issue starts with the economy because last year we had an unprecedented propping up the stock market that should have at least one if not two correction near zero interest rates that the fed is and they so that that they were forced to buy back their own treasury because otherwise no one would be buying them at the zero interest rate the corporations use their giant tax breaks given to them back in twenty seventeen to buy back their own stock and then more recently because interest rates were near zero they have borrowed money to buy back more of their own stock so what we've accumulated is massive debt corporate debt tried that debt big government that day has it been possibly seen since since World War two well my feeling is this is this coming year with the Pluto Saturn conjunction in January following a lunar eclipse and the Jupiter Saturn didn't junction in the query is for the first time in an air sign in hundreds of years that this is going to be at the old year which is going to cause us to say that music out there the wealthy and the powerful the government in bed with the giant corporations it'd manipulated a comma me sit in their favor and left over after this population you commented earlier on homelessness we've seen this level since the depression of the nineteen thirties so we have a bifurcated economy mainly prosperous for the super rich all these people that are homeless or destitute or as I say living in their sister's basement are not in any of this survey Sir not told they don't vote because they often do not have a home or a location which to be registered I am saying to people on the air this year make sure you vote this year make sure that they are not urging you from the voter rolls which is but disaster is the current it's going on nationally recently two hundred and fifty thousand people were purged from the Wisconsin voter roll these legitimate voters yeah one of my friends who work which established there had lived there for three years and found that she was hurt GM's to be a college professor the HTC what he created an evil there in her town she went down and found that she was heard to say she'd notified everybody else to go down there and make sure they weren't heard that there is Dan this is the end cycle but like all of the mass manipulation by the giant banks the giant corporations it's been going on for a long time the ills of the crash in two thousand and eight were not corrected we haven't been allowed to have a healthy correction it in these markets and I think that we're gonna have extreme the extremes going back and forth up and down and up and down and everything by the end of the year will now we're entering a recessionary economy more important is that we have to create a whole new economic paradigm because the I think of my prediction is in the twenty twenty not necessarily in this year but the decade coming out we will have to reform the international monetary system by creating an international reserve currency no longer the dollar yeah and it may be an all digital currency pay technology I don't like all digital and that's dangerous isn't it I don't like it either George I am a get the blockchain is the lead pack up all of that in the pay as you know that was behind bit coin as tell they've been hacked state tax their last taxable than other things I am deeply disturbed by this but I think that's the direction that things are going to go away and because fifty Jupiter Saturn junction goes forward in a query as an all digital society I mean most people are charging on their cell phones already yeah I mean the fact that that we're going digital with this is really did already started to happen and will at some point in the next several years probably become policy now however in nations I don't like the idea of a one currency but the dollars you know it's it's nineteen forty four has been the global currency sovereign nation so probably to fight them on themselves about having a global currency but I think eventually in the twenty twenty six and a half back now and I also feel that we're going to get that comment once it goes into recession into real trouble and get back dept dancing as I call it I think we're good at many people think we're going to be replaced by robots and computers and of course already that is taking place that will take place that human beings have imagination creativity and they have soul and we had capabilities that simply go beyond the machines that we create they're here to help that's not replace the and I feel that we're going to create new economic models and a lot of it is going to be bass is one of your previous guest at about rebuilding infrastructure and heavy and environmental rescue a consummate across the world and thinking about that okay on coast to coast the forty nine newsletters about something that is not broadly discussed in its hydrogen bore on nuclear fusion which I believe will have an infrastructure and be on line by twenty twenty six this is for in the age of the fossil fuel thank Christ all of the oil economies which are central and South America all the nations of the Middle East and Russia Russia don't doesn't have any economy other other didn't call out so this is going to be a big problem for nations that do not transform their economies into more equal opportunity entrepreneurial environmental restoration economies that I see in the future which I think is going to be a part of our saving life on the planet and also it's going to take the money out of it that he did concentration of wealth and power it creates the condom be of more equal opportunity for people balance between doctor primary capitalism and chill

"Bring forward this council did not ask for it we did not initiate it so I just WanNa get four years ago where we started from and where we appear to be today for those that are wondering how we got to this very complex somewhat convoluted spot it so I just felt madame mayor that I needed to get that on? The record jar doesn't WANNA kick existing in Strip clubs out of downtown to her using government power to shut down. Private businesses is a really big deal in any context. But she doesn't WanNa leave the clubs alone either remember. It's not just relocating the club. That's on the agenda here. The council also must decide whether to put more restrictions restrictions on how they operate. And that's just what it does one after another the council votes to ban dancers younger than twenty won all those in favor. Say Aye. Aye Band. Private back rooms Motion passes back at you. Madam clerk require brighter lighting and more video surveillance all those in favor say I am require background checks on all employees at the club's not just the dancers all those in favor. Say Aye with that. The council has just imposed a bunch of new restrictions on the Strip clubs. Now it's time for the council to decide whether to kick the clubs out of downtown. This is the moment that will decide whether Velma and John will have to leave their homes. Whether Stephanie will lose her job whether Cami will have to leave the corner he's been on for decades whether new Renault. Oh will leave room for old Renault as the city continues to Change Mayor Hillary. She makes it clear where she stands on the issue. Okay so one of the things I would say about location and I have not wavered on. This position has been very very very clear. I want them in places where they don't become outta sight outta mind. I want them in places where there. Well I want them in places where they're very well regulated related. The mayor wants those Bright Godley Strip clubs smack in the middle of downtown where it's easier to keep an eye on them and I'm not hearing a lot of dissent from the rest of the council. The mayor calls for a final vote on whether to let the Strip clubs. Stay downtown. All right thank you okay. So I'm emotion from from Caldera Vice Mayor Doer and a second from counseling Weber. All those in favor say I I. I'm a post motion carries and with that Cammie gets to keep his club's right. Where they Dr Jenny? BRECCA's is the only Navo the wild orcas in her ward and she still doesn't think it's a good fit for the neighborhood this about face by the council this seemingly sharp pivot away from its. Crackdown might be stunning. If it weren't so while ordinary sorry this kind of thing happens all the time and local government. There's a groundswell of energy to enact some grand sweeping change then bureaucracy Chrissy of actually creating that change collapses under its own weight or even its own ineptitude here. It's been four years since the Strip club. Moratorium was first floated and council since then to lawmakers have been replaced. A key staff member who worked on this project has actually died. The air air has gone out of this balloon so the wild. Orchids isn't going anywhere. It will remain a bulwark against gentrification a a monolith against Sushi burrito joints a glittering beacon of vice that built Renault in the first place or it won't maybe one day Cami will succumb to developers dangling big checks in front of his eyes and give up his coroner to New Reno. This is a living breathing. City undergoing going up period of tremendous change and change doesn't necessarily discriminate. Maybe we'll get bought out. Or maybe the Grand Tesla experiment in the desert will go bust regardless people living in the Ponderosa Hotel. People like the Tesla workers making a go of it in the new factory. Three the women earning a living in the strip clubs. They'll have to continue navigating Reno's reinvention the council vote didn't change that. Uh after the break engine checks in Cami and Velma and Stephanie. See how they're faring in the new Reno.

But I certainly couldn't see you in red leather pants, and no I would never know did you ever wear leather pants worn black leather pants absolutely could on my motorcycle, number one and number two a couple of band gigs. But then they are so freaking hot when you're playing drums in leather pants. Yeah, we're a lot alike in in many areas. But not that. Well, did you wear leather pants? No. I can't see you another day. I can't see you either. I would have been how can you see you see me? I would have been disappointed if you said, you were leather pants should be disappointed in you. He is you could see look at look at the look on his face. No, I'm not I'm not disappointed. I mean, that's the term that the dad they had used to your child makes them feel. You can be mad at them. They don't care. But if you're disappointed. Yeah. Anyway, let's go bring our guest on her name is Wendy courtesies the owner of comedy works. And she made some news today that she decided not to book comedian, Louis CK, and he's been at the comedy works before. I remember we had him on our morning show. A few years ago had him on here, and we may have been up here. Hey, Wendy heireann on with Rick Lewis, Dave Logan, Kathy Lee. How you doing? I'm good. How are you guys? Good. Wendy good. Thanks for coming on. And and man, congratulations on all your success with both of these comedy clubs, as you know, Wendy. We have comedians from your clubs on the morning show every week and every one of them. Thank you. I appreciate that. Thank you so much. We appreciate you. Every one of them says these are the best clubs in the country. Well, they speak the truth. They do. Say that I really don't because we've talked off the air with these guys and girls, and no it's it's a it's legit. I wanna ask because we we've had comedians up here as well. The three of this. And they have said exactly that's a Wendy. What what makes an I have not been to another comedy club outside this market. What makes comedy works such a special place for these people? Well, lots of things downtown room is just first of all at it's very at the very organic beginnings, literally the physical space that was built in that basement is really amazing magical, and and there's much in there like sardines, and that's really amazing laughter. I was hanging on green room Saturday night with Pete Davidson and some of his entourage and opening accent buddies, and they're just you know, to hear them say like I've heard about this room. But it's it's it's real it's real and it's much better than I ever imagined. They all say those kinds of things, and there is a magic thing about that. But then there's the crowds. You know, we've been there for thirty seven years and just like we condition our children, we you know, that they that they like to read or something we condition these crowds with good comedy. And so they're well educated, you know, as far as being a comedy audience, and then we treat our comics. Right. I say off into other club owners got one particularly who used to be a broker he's very numbers oriented. I'm just drop a point at the end of the column and do the right thing pay somebody a little bit more. I try to pay people fairly and treat people fairly and not cheat them, and you know, what I mean. All of those things. It's not very hard. Honestly, it's hard. But some people make a lot harder than it needs. Stop -solutely. And then you know, my mom's from the south. So I grew up with southern mom and grandmothers where there was ice tea at everybody was you're invited your neighbors over, and you always had bundt cake or something. And I say that respectfully in that. You know, I guess you have guests coming in every week. And you treat them like, they're your guests. We're talking to Wendy courtesy is the owner of the the comedy works. And the story about Louis CK. Everybody knows I think those the story he admitted last year or two thousand seventeen that he masturbated in front of women who didn't want to and I guess some women were okay with it. But others weren't and just about destroyed his career. Well, he's trying to make a comeback now. And there's a lot of people say too soon. And it it's not going. Well, his comeback apparently isn't going well in apparently you guys had an opportunity to book him at your clubs, and you said, no. I did I did. And this was probably I don't know. In the fifteen I was in the middle of last month or something, and it was on a Friday, and I got an Email from his personal assistant. Saying, hey, Louise gonna do a couple of days. Here's can you shoot me back your male, and I was going into a log meeting with accounts. And I knew I was going to be tied up for like three or four hours. So I shot back what I had available right away. Because I would do that with any big ass. I'd want to get that out of the way. So I'm not losing out on anything mmediately new obviously the big act, but it was a big act with a serious path. Right. And it was like weird because that meeting took a lot longer than it needed to because I could not keep my mind on what I was supposed to be doing because I'm like what? Yeah. I got home about seven o'clock at night. And I'm sitting in the dark at the dining table on you know, unpacked, everything I have not talked to one person except for those accountants about those stupid numbers all day. And and I haven't had time to look at Email or anything and one of my buddies in the business, text me, and I said, hey, can you talk, and I told them this. And he said, hey, have you seen? Did you see what came out in? I think it was the times maybe with the New York Post last month. And I said, no, I have it. He shot it to me. And I started googling because I want you to do my homework. I knew we had come back and we're doing stuff the seller. I've heard this from comics from New York comics, and I've heard about some of the stuff he was doing at the cellar, and I'd love nothing more than to have Louis C K in my room. Because that's what we do the biggest and the best that we can get our hands on for the marquee value for the you know, that the number of bodies that brings in for the revenue creates that's all really great. But. I knew I couldn't. I couldn't. And I knew I couldn't all day. And that's what bugged me I think because I had shot back. My stuff. And now, I'm literally on the phone with him. And or we may be texting at that point. And may be assistant send an Email saying, hey, we'll take that April date. Said to her I responded to her and said can I talk to Louis and she said, yeah, what's your cell phone number? And when would you like to set this up, I'm not this weekend? I need I've got some stuff to do. And I made some sort of a stupid excuse like, I've got some stuff to do was bake. I didn't say I want to think about this. But I did want to think about it. I wanted to talk to him. And I wanted to say, hey, we can do a date. Let's do a date. But let's do something that makes a difference. We've got to do something that makes a difference. When did can you hang on one second where we're going to get a quick traffic? Check. We want to hear more about this Wendy Curtis, owner of the comedy works. We'll get more with her coming up on the other side. John morrissey. Traffic. Guys, second out a problem downtown looks like we've got a couple of construction trucks on southbound.

"That's crazy dude, but I've never had it. I've never had it. I can go out. Do five thousand six hundred. I just never thank talked to one person. I talked to anybody. Well doing a show for five thousands a lot easier than doing a show for one. Yes, it is. You know, you try to go out and do comedy for eight people. Oh my God, brutal on. And I don't think the people even get like how terrible does sound like I say this from time to time to people who we talk about comedy clubs and I don't do that many comedy. Clubs, but there's a psychology to good comedy clubs, and you see the ones you're improv funding. There's there's a psychology to how those rooms are set up, kind of semi circle around the stage. It's a shorter room. It's not very deep as they want people to be first of all close to the stage, but they want you to see other patrons right in there. Because if you see other people laughing, then you're tempted to laugh too, and you feel like it's okay to so k. you have permission. So there's a whole thing that, but what you, you know, going out onto and theaters, or stadiums, or arenas or baseball fields. And I've done those. It's a holiday fields are really hard because you I've been on the stage. I did one last month. I think it wasn't Idaho. I'm standing on a stage at home plate, and these people have their folding chairs at a county fair. They brought in eight hundred people out there in the deal fares, and it was like, you know, and there's not. There's no one within thirty yards of you. They're all way back there because nobody wants to sit right by the stage. It was a good show. I did a show two thousand last year bozeman Montana at a state. Fair deal. Bill and the closest there were people milling about down here in the rodeo pin, right? And then they were everybody else's one hundred yards away in a grandstand and I'm on a screen. Second. Imagine doing giant stadium like that control the room. Now I always wonder like in those bigger arenas, people go see ventriloquists I know dude anybody's again ventriloquist.

So I'd have to go and pick the piece of paper up, but I wouldn't get there like eleven, but they've been out there all night comics. So they think I'm doing a show. Well, I have a few drinks before the show, so their trunks are open in the parking lot. There tailgate and basically drinking at nine o'clock in the morning. So they all go to thing and everybody's in line, they wait and they go to one minute, and then they decide whether or not you get invited back to, I mean, horrific. So this one guy I know him, but the guy Brad Greenberg and his brother who used to own the comedy zones had one nighters all over. They'd have a one night or in a seafood restaurant, they'd have a one nighter in a hotel lobby and they'd have a one, you know, anywhere they could open a play. So this guy's stand in line stands lie. Lied. I kid you not for an hour and a half. Right? Finally, it's his time to get up and the and the greenberg's are judging who's going to go move on guy, walks up on, say you had real long hair kind of flips it out of the white stand in line for an hour and a half flips his hair back and goes two Jews walk into a bar the next day. It's an f. in comedy zone. Any walks off. And apparently they had owed him money or something. He waited an hour and a half to tell that joke in front of him. He left went to the party got in his car left. Wanted to keep the money boys now. Oh my gosh. That's too much. I mean, obviously it worked out for you. I'm so glad I didn't take that route. I didn't have to take that because I would have never done comedy. I, I'm a speaker, I'm a storyteller. I'm not a humorous more than anything else. And so I'm not a traditional quote unquote comic in people who know me know that I am student of it and I love it. People have heard me say that at nauseam, but if I had to go through all that stuff. Is used to all the time. Say, I'm going, go do an open mic. Thank God. I just never did it because I've been open mics now I've done shows and then they have an open mic after right in the other theater, whatever in the club or or you know, you got to clear out and then you go into watch those people us brutal. Brewed I literally lived out of my car for four years. Yeah, like I got three weeks booked in Augusta, savannah and Birmingham name that club in a gusting comedy house. The comedy house grew up there. Oh, yeah. Yeah, that that place ran a lot of comics through the did man. Yeah, but they were paying me one hundred twenty dollars a week. I three weeks booked in a row, making hundred twenty dollars a week, and I quit my teaching job. Ditched my apartment, moved into my car and never went back. Yeah, like I would take..
