It has enormous influential. Average person stabilized nonetheless the feed flies under the popular radar routinely upstate in the press television at popular literature but news of astrophysical exotica in the quest for new elementary particles I agree with you I used to have a h getting background in that. I think about physics generally just think about desperate physical exotic that you mentioned the politics so says a looked exactly is it. Let's start. Let's go to the physics What exactly is condensed matter physics. Condensed matter physics is what is the modern name for what people call us to call solid state physics but i think they want people wanted to include liquids as well so that's why it's sort of condensed phases distinct from gases and the whole point of condensed matter physics the whole philosophy behind condensed matter physics to use the word in a non professional way is that there are emergent properties. That happen when you bring together large numbers of constituents that may be interact via very simple rules. You can end up with emergent behaviors and emergent properties. That are not at all obvious.
El Salvador Will Use Volcanic Energy to Mine Bitcoin
"El salvador has moved more quickly than anyone thought possible to make. Bitcoin legal tender with more when president naib kelly jumped on nick. Carter's twitter space on tuesday. Someone asked him about bitcoin mining. I think it was actually alex. Gradstein that prompted president kelly to speculate about the potential for bitcoin mining powered by geothermal energy from volcanoes while by the next morning he had initiated a project around exactly that and the ceo of the largest north american minor was up in his comments asking about getting involved. The net of all of this. Was that the possibility of a new mainstream. Narrative of bitcoins capacity for economic empowerment has captured. The imagination of bitcoin is the world over but of course this wouldn't be bitcoin without some controversy and strive to go with it last night. I jokingly said that today's episode is going to have to be called the empire strikes back and this wasn't in reference specifically to the global powers that be getting up el salvador's craw about bitcoin although there is a meeting with the imf today that could provide some insight into their initial reaction to the move in fact as i was prepping. The show preemptive comments from the m. f. came out jerry rice and imf spokesperson said quote adoption of. Bitcoin is legal. Tender raises a number of macroeconomic financial and legal issues. That require careful analysis. Which i mean isn't surprising. Of course they were going to say this. And i'm not overly concerned yet. Instead the empire strikes back comment was about a string of established powers. Ratcheting up their rhetorical and real attacks on bitcoin and crypto at large. Let's head first to china as this is a story that's already started and that has seen some significant developments this week. There was action by two provinces against mining in xinjiang. The local government issued a notice to shutdown crypto mining activities. The shutdown was immediate. Taking place yesterday. On june ninth and the specific focus was on the economic technology development park. This is a fifteen thousand five hundred square kilometer area that houses a number of different coal powered industries

Birth Care for Every Body
"The reality. According to the cdc about seven hundred women die each year in the united states from complications related to their pregnancy. And the thing is is that you know this country says it is the most modern advanced industrialized and so it's seven hundred women. Every year is too many and black and indigenous. People are two to three times more likely to die from pregnancy related issues than their white counterparts. The relationship with the medical field and doctors and whether or not we as people of color can have a say over how we are treated probably is one of the factors here earlier this month representative corey. Bush testified before the house oversight committee about her own experiences during childbirth. Let's take a listen around five months. I went to see my doctor for a routine prenatal visit. As i was sitting in the doctor's office. I noticed a picture on the wall. They said if you feel like something is wrong. Something is wrong. Tell your doctor. I felt like something was wrong. So so that's what i did. I told my doctor. I told her that. I was having severe pains. And she said oh. No you're fine. you're fine. Go home. And i'll see you next time. So that's what i did. I went home one week later. I went into preterm labor. Twenty three weeks. My son was born one pound three ounces. his ears were still in his head. His eyes were still fused shut. His fingers were smaller than rice. And his skin was translucent. A black baby translucence. Can you could see his lungs. He could fit within the palm of my hand. We were told he had zero percent chance of life. The chief of neonatal surgery happened to be in the hospital that morning and saw my case on the surgical board and she decided to try to resuscitate him. It worked for the first month of his life as i was on a ventilator fighting to live for four months he was in the neo. Natal care unit. The doctor who deliver my son apologized. She said you were right. And i didn't listen to you. Give me another chance to us later. I was pregnant again. So i went back to her sixteen weeks. I went for an ultrasound at the clinic and saw different doctor. Who was working that day. I found out again. I was in preterm labor. The doctor told me that the baby was going to abort i said. No you have to do something. But he was adamant he said. Just go home. let it aboard. You can get pregnant again. Because that's what you people do. Mr kelly was with me. We didn't know what to do after the doctor left. So we saw a chair sitting sitting in the hallway. My sister picked up the chair. She threw it down the hallway. Nurses came running from everywhere to see what was wrong. A nurse called my doctor and she put me on a stretcher. The next morning by doctor came in and places arklow on my uterus and i was able to carry my baby my daughter my angel who is now twenty years old. My son who was saved is now twenty one years old. This is what desperation looks like that chair flying down the hallway. This is what being your own advocate. Looks

Cells are in cases whenever most dynamic immune system weapons and our natural killer cells are so effective that very early on in this experience with sars. Cov tune this is back in like april. The fda was fast tracking drug to target our natural killer cells because they were found to be so effective are in case sales at killing. Sars cov two infects. His children tend to have a much higher resilience. For example. is there a very robust production. Immobilization of ourselves. We suppress when we're sleep deprived now. There's this term corona som- neha rice one of the ramification. One of the fallout is where we already have a society that sleep-deprived one hundred and fifty million americans are regularly sleep-deprived. The data exists. And then you throw this on top of it.

Is It Time To Stop Counting Calories? Dr Vanita Rahman Weighs In
"The idea of not counting. Calories is a little bit confusing since some plant foods like avocados and nuts. They still have quite a bit of calories. So when should we still be keeping track of calories and can we forget all about it. Yeah so you know. It's a little bit confusing. I know for people Because you hear so. Many different types of dietary advice and what works dozen. When do you cards when you count calories. Let's really simplify this. You know. I tell people if you're looking to lose weight or keep it off or improve your health. Think of this large basket of food on your kitchen table and you're going to select food from there. So when does that basket is the key. A lots of fresh fruits vegetables whole grains like keen wa and oats and millet and brown rice and wheat products and then legalzoom's lentils now if we select from those We don't necessarily have to sit there and count calories and the reason being all of these foods are really high in fiber. There are naturally low in fat so their caloric densities low and that fiber just fills us up. So you know. If you've had an apple you know you can only eat one. Maybe two apples before you're really full. And that's because of the fiber in it so you don't to sit there and count honey apples you're eating Where the confusion does come in. Is some of these higher facts. Foods that are plant based like kat does or nuts and seeds are all as now. If you're looking to lose weight or lower your blood sugar you may want to minimize the use of those foods. So you know depending on where you are in your journey reducing that can be extremely helpful but for the other things that i talked about the nutrition profile so good caloric density solo that we really don't have to worry about counting calories.
Antonio Brown Re-Signing With Buccaneers on One-Year Deal
"Antonio brown is good. The case could be made over a six year period before he left pittsburgh he was the best receiver. Sense jerry. rice and the thing about receivers are randy. Moss might have this amazing year or two and his talent was you know. Maybe the best avenue randy moss. Another guy might have a year or two but these receivers tend to come and go fast. Now they stick around they might be like. Julio jones is he won the top three receivers. now he's not today but he certainly had times. Wise brown was very consistent very consistent and in just eight games. He had forty five catches as the number three option and what really stood out is his yards after catch or the best on the team so this is not a guy going out of bounds. This is a guy taken the ball and head up the field. I agree very productive. And if you think about it then that's awesome great. Why well obviously there's the author field questions but if you look at the time before the off the field were the questions. This was as productive receivers. We've seen since jerry rice and that's saying something that means maybe the second most productive six year period ever ever. Now he's hitting the wall when it comes to his age Four receivers typically again jerry. Rice was the exception to that even if he drops off a little bit a little bit. 'cause age antonio brown i believe will be at least as good if not better this year. Well how could he drop off and be better. The other circumstances remember he joined the team midseason right as much as he is a pro's pro in a way that in browns able to get acclimated and get integrated. He was paying much better coming into the playoffs now. He did get hurt but to me. His last three or four games were better than his first three or four which is a trend line. I think they continues with a more robust offseason into having the whole time with the team. So net net. I think browns more of a factor

We demand the freedom that this land promises President that is activist to Mika Mallory. This was a protest song calling for justice in light of police brutality and systemic racism. So Mallory, showing up might make sense. This is not a train. This is our place until Frieda. But some people were not happy about it, including Sameera Rice, the mother of Tamir race, the unarmed 12 year old boy who was shot and killed by a white police officer in Cleveland. In 2014 Sameera.

Professor King Welcome. Thank you very much. So let's start with the term black pain. How do you define it? What exactly do you mean? I look at it in two different ways.

Lack of Paid Sick Time Could Be a Barrier to Vaccination
"Of today everyone sixteen and older is now eligible to receive a covid vaccine in every single state more than two hundred million shots have already been given in the us so far about half of all adults have received at least one dose. The vaccine is free whether you have health insurance or not but even minus the massive logistics of distributing the vaccine there are logistics involved in getting it and some workers are having trouble getting paid time off to get their shots or to deal with side effects from the workplace culture desk. Marketplace's megan mccarthy carino has the story when washington dc software engineer lori. Barth got the vaccine last month Kind of kicked her but headache chills. brain fog. I don't think i could have read taxed on screen comfortably. Loan sit up in a chair. Barth didn't have to worry about working through the pain because she got her vaccine on a weekend and she has plenty of paid sick time. She could've used but not all workers do says vicki shavuot a senior fellow with new america. And you could very easily see how it would be financially impossible and potentially job risking for a worker to be able to get a vaccine. There is no national requirement that employers offer any sick leave much less a couple of days to get vaccinated and low wage. Essential workers are among the least likely to have paid time off says elite schools with the economic policy institute. They may not have a lot of power negotiate for when the best time is to have the vaccines that they make sure. They don't have to work the next day. In case there's side effects said that impact them thirteen states and several dozen cities do mandate some form of paid sick leave and many employers like mcdonald's starbucks and wal mart have offered paid time off for employees to get vaccinated doric rice a law professor at uc hastings. Says it's important. That workers have vaccine time off on top of their usual sick leave.
Teen Shot by Maryland State Trooper
"Washington post today filled with all of the abominations. Of the Democrat Party posing as journalism masquerading as journalism. And I got to the last page of the local news section. The Metro section the B section. If you go to the last page below the weather, and I'm not kidding, it's below the weather. Seen fatally shot by state trooper Now this is yesterday in the Washington metropolitan area, which is the You know, the rectal aperture of the news universe I think and a teenager with a replica gun was fatally shot Tuesday in a confrontation with the Maryland state trooper. State police said. The youth, identified by police as Peyton Ham, 16 years old, was shot in the Leonardtown area of ST Mary's County Police said he lived near where the incident occurred. Place that the teenager confronted a trooper with what turned out to be an air soft gun. A toy gun A, which shoots nonmetallic pellets, The Washington Post says the other non metallic because they're foam their little yellow foam balls and therefore should not your brother across the dinner table. Police said it resembled a real gun sound like Tamir Rice when to the riots begin, state police said The trooper was sent to the scene after two calls reported a male who was acting suspiciously and apparently had a gun. That's exactly what happened in the Tamir Rice case, precisely and exactly Police said A witness told them that ham the 16 year old took a shooting stance in quotation marks and was pointing his gun at the trooper before the trooper fight exactly like to memorize. Now. Here's the very important sense that this is the only sentence that matters. The Trooper and ham are both white Police said There was no indication that hands gun was not a real weapon, see how the standard has changed. Now there has to be proof that it's not a real weapon. That's the opposite of the standard that it was applied before after being wounded, and I've got to say I find this part to be a bit difficult to believe. After being wounded him. 16 year old boy with an air soft gun produced a knife, Uh, witness recounted because he's like Rambo on a suicide mission with an air soft gun and after he shot his air, soft gun laying next time he pulled out a white knife because he's with al Qaida is something I got a little trouble believing that part Ham died at the hospital, so
"rice" Discussed on Ideas
"Call the spirits of the west the north or the south or the rocks and the mountains and all that most of these beliefs originated in. What would be considered animism. The belief that plants animals and sometimes even inanimate objects have a spirit and if that's true the rice plant has a spirit but rice has especially important spirit and in many societies the spirit of their ice is said to be the only spirit that is similar to the human spirit or the human soul. And if you have that underlying belief as religious traditions developed that becomes incorporated in them in japan. For example. you have this belief about the reis spirit. that's the mountain spirit in the winter and becomes the spirit of the rice fields in the summer. Well as buddhism and shintoism developed in japan shinto really is just an expression of the animus traditions but even even the buddhist tradition adopted these notions and there is a goddess of rice in japan called. Noddy who has both buddhist and shinto versions and it's clear that buddhism adopted this rice a deity that was basically an expression of animism. I think one of the most striking things to me is seeing a huge range of religious diversity in the region. We're dealing with shinto. In japan india is primarily hindu but with a huge muslim minority. Buddhism is strong in places like thailand and sri lanka vietnam has a very mixed religious history catholicism in the philippines and yet what we're talking about with the rice culture kind of bubbles up from underneath and expresses itself through all of these different contexts. The rice plant has a spirit. I'm watching the video tape. Now with aurora's husband jean huddle. The men of the village are beating their drums. They brought a frightened pig into their midst just the beginning of the rice harvest ceremony. You see the rice wine jars where the the men will be drinking a rice wine throughout the morning. We'll see some of the harvest already shortly. Get killing pig offering not as well but some of the meat will be and some of the rice for the fed to the women who are at this very moment harvesting down in the fields below. Can you just describe this shot. Okay the milwaukee is just Killed the pigs to be sacrificed and shortly they'll cut the pig up and put it with the rice bundles and In front of the budel or the rice gods and ceremony will continue in terms of rice offerings. And that kind of thing. I think it's a wonderful connectedness. Co author with jeffrey alford of seduction rice. Naomi do good. These things are all about connecting. I think temporal power with spiritual power whether you call it a rice god or the power of the earth. You better have respect for the thing you depend on because if you don't it may disappear. I mean we. All placate are gods in various ways. Chinese grandmothers will say to their children. You know if you leave forever every grain of rice you leave. You will have a pockmark. And that's really to get people to realize there's so much labor has gone into it traditionally and certainly still in many places. A lot of labor goes into it. So have some respect. For the people who harvested it for the grain itself for the people who harvested treated well and then it will reward you it will taste good. The fields will be for tyler. I was told in japan. If you leave any single rice on the ball then it will haunt your later because you're not really respecting the farmers hard work. You're not really able to them. It's because we know every day we see these farmers working hard and we participate in that. We know how hard it is to grow rice. I think in north america. We've lost some of that. Elemental sense with wheat. For example in north america where huge producers of weed in canada the wheat farmers know how much work it is and how important is. But we've kind of lost that elemental sense but in old days in europe. You didn't let bread fall on the floor and a crust of bread was valuable and we had all of that language and expression around earning your daily bread. It's just with rice. Are we closer to it is. There's more of rice that's less mechanized. I don't know we're we're just not as far along in the loss of ruggedness with rice. Perhaps for example. If if you're in a japanese household or in many parts of east and southeast asia the racist going to be washed and going to be watched carefully and with respect and without letting any grains go down the drain or anything and and that is a ritual and similarly the rice paddle in japan is not used for anything but rice. You wouldn't sully yet with anything else. Well that's sort of ritual respect and that sort of the place of rice in the household. It's a very practical place. But it's also a ritualistic and indian housewife was trying to show me. How race was important to her family. And she took me to the pooja room where there's an altar in sacred spot in the center of the house and she explained to me that every time. She cooks rice. It's usually cook once a day in the morning. She would bring it into that area and she would say a prayer and she would offer authorized to the deities there and in particular. She had a little brass statue of on porter there. The goddess of rice in india and the is typically depicted with a spoon in her hand and a bowl. Dishing rice to shoe so by offering this food to the deities. The food itself becomes sacred or become sanctified than this bowl of food that she's just offered to the deities. She goes to the table ended. It is offered to her family. This is cohen salary between the deities and the humans. It's the offering of the sacred or blessed rice to become human food and that's why the rice can uniquely sustain them as no other food canned because it's the sacred food and we have dailies three as the provider of rice in java which is very interesting because they re three is actually a hindu goddess of origin. She's acquainted with lakshmi or sri in india but job is muslim today and has been muslim for many hundred years and yet three survive so there are similar ideas running through all of these diverse religious traditions and the ideas where i rice was there first. Eight thousand years old. That's before any of these. Major religions existed and when the religions developed them they incorporated the ideas about rice.

And then you might be extra things alongside but the rice would come to the table not playing with flavorings to add but cooked with flavorings sort of a form of result.

Okay what does that mean. It's the latin word that needs cultivated. O yeah so It's just a species name okay. Whatever or reason a sativa is agent rice or what. We are more familiar with as rice. There's also a reside glad berina. Which is african. rice is less common but it was also independently domesticated. But it's been partly replaced by the higher yielding sediba so race can be white brown black purple and red. This is separate from the variety of rice. Which are the like. Actual like species subspecies think like matia rice which is long grain and it originated in the foothills of the himalayas. That is usually what we as. Americans are more familiar with than theirs. Glutinous or sticky rice. Which is used in southeast asia. Yeah which is why if you've ever tried to use chopsticks on rice in the united states there's a good chance that didn't work very well and you got very committee sound why yes one game. At a time. I had no i had thought about that. Oh my god. Great glutinous rice from the latin gluten. Noces manning glue or sticky. It doesn't contain gluten good so the can have both variety and color so you can have both monty brown rice or glutinous white rice or the other way around because the color is often due to how it's processed how is it grown in. What is a rice patty. So it's grown in fields or on like hill steps which is like a practice that's been happening for thousands of years so the the rice. Patty is a Small level feel like it's flooded and the rice is able to withstand that flooding while a lot of weeds and pests are not so it protects the rights as well and these patties have soil. That really won't absorb water so it just kind of holds the standing water and then they're they're held in by like earth borders so they can hold a four to six inches of water for most of the growing season. When you're growing rice you mentioned the I forget the word. You used the husks the shell. What's it called the huskies Do people the farmers like manually take that off themselves or is that a processing thing and also do they have to like individually. Pick up a green of rice. Surely they have some sort of technology that makes it easier but nope nope. There's a machine called rice color or rice. Husker which automatically like runs through and us steel rollers to remove the husk or like a rotating disk that uses abrasion to remove it before that they would often use a mortar pestle. You wouldn't individually off of each grain of rice. Peel the husk okay. Fair so with the rice paddies oftentimes they're harvested manually though. There is some mechanical harvesting. And then they do a process of threshing where they loosen the edible grain from the straw. That's attached to a lot of the plant is edible until they try to take the seed part of that when you talk about a planet you're talking about what then becomes one grain of rice. No okay each rice plant has more than once he cool. What is rice. Look like when it's plant. I going to send you a picture of. I'm not sure how describe this to it. Looks like we so like yeah. It's a grass. Yes i jordan. I've literally never seen races a plant before. I thought you were an individual. And i was so confused. Yeah okay what i'm looking at is like it. Has a green bay like like wheat does and then it. Has you know the yellow part where the actual rice is and it looks like we in that like it is a bunch of rice connected to each other kind of like the way that a wheat stalk looks like one of these things is one rice when rice plant or is it multiple stocks or whatever. You would call those things. I think multiple are connected. Yeah okay so when when they're in standing water the actual rice part is out of the water. It's the routes and stuff that's in standing water the whole time right. Yes yeah okay. There is still standing water. But they're not entirely submerged. Yeah i was definitely picturing grains of rice underway A couple of inches of water. They can that way. Why is that a face hold on during his just sent us a picture of two faces made out of rice patties. Just the first result. Oh my goodness like part. Part of the plant is submerged. But it's not an entirely aquatic plant. It's like right a couple inches. And they're pretty tall. Yeah imagine like the next time you drive through weet field imagining that. They were all standing in like a good. You know four inches of water in a slightly what. We're playing so that the area around it like kept the water in. That's kind of what race patio looks like okay that i'm glad i had that misconception. Why thought that. I just literally is a plant. Take one race thing and you planted in the ground and it goes and entire and you get one more rice grave. There are finite number of rice. Cake bartender eating all of them. They're not gonna be any rice left next year. It's a good point. That's why i was so confused when you said that it was like corn and wheat now is like that doesn't make sense to me but biology strange so okay okay. I'm very glad we cleared that up. Gosh how long have we been farming rice this way. So we've been cultivating rice for about five thousand years cool yup It's a very old and various central plants. Of course our methods have changed because they've become more mechanical. We've done selective breeding for higher yields and the plants themselves have changed with. That's more recently. There's been genetic modification to give rice more nutrients and to make like resistant to pesticides and general pasts but we've been farming rest for a very long time. Yeah well as doing research. I saw a fun little quiz fact. I want to fact check with you. okay my my japanese knowing friend. Oh gosh okay. Vaguely japanese knowing yes so. Apparently honda means japanese. The main rice field is this correct based on it. Yes that sounds correct. But i need to see what the characters look like when it be this. Okay so the the i. I just caught his first things.

In fact, by the time you're listening to this, my guest may be the next Democratic nominee for vice president of the United States. Susan Rice was United Nations Ambassador, and then national security adviser for the Obama White. House. She spent all eight years in the administration working on global insecurity issues. You probably heard about the pandemic response office the Trump White House closed two years ago or the pandemic playbook. They Shalt Rice was the adviser in charge of both those efforts. She's the rare government official to have weathered intense national political exposure without ever running for office most people I became aware of her after the tragedy in Benghazi and the political circus that followed before Hillary Clinton was beat up over it. Susan Rice was the main target of congressional Republicans. She wrote about her experiences last year in an autobiography call tough love. It's back in paperback this week and it's incredible. How much has changed in the air and yet how weirdly relevant a lot of what you wrote about has become and asked her about some of those stories from the book in our interview we talked about statehood for Washington DC, racism and sexism and American politics, and the formative experience that made her who she is today a person who may soon be our first woman of color on national ticket.

They were accustomed to covering their tracks. They even kept three sets of accounting counting books to hide their real profits but a federal investigation was likely to dig deeper. Rice visited Washington and to see what other news he could sniff out. He got in touch with all his contacts. But no one could corroborates the raid reports. In fact people were amused that he had gone to all the trouble. From that perspective. Rice was an important wealthy businessman who was running scared from a stray Ruma Ruma. It was enough to make them wonder why his reaction was so extreme but soon enough they discover why in August of nineteen ten banks started to refuse be h schefters checks. All of a sudden rice was forced to deal with angry crowds of customers on the daily so on September twenty ninth nineteen ten. Rice wasn't surprised to see the B. H. Schefters Office Lounge full of people after weeks of fielding furious clients. He'd gotten used to at the site but had he looked closer. He might have noticed that. Fifteen of these so-called customers were wearing heavy coats despite the warm weather the undercover cops pretended to watch the stockbrokerage action following along. As prices of HSIEH's changed changed and customers reacted biding their time. At twelve o'clock sharp rice stepped outside to smoke a cigar. Has He surveyed the area. He noticed a police wagon pulling up to the curb in front of his building but before he could process the significance hence a shout from inside the office grabbed his attention. All the undercover cops had drawn their guns from within the trench coats and was staging Ching arrayed their objective to find George. Graham Rice Rice was public enemy number one on as far as the cops were concerned but in the commotion they confused one of the couriers for the mastermind behind the whole operation. As the man's man pleaded his innocence. Rice made his escape as more police officers. Swarmed Rice walked calmly through the length of the building careful not to draw any attention to himself and exited through the back door from from there. He made his way to his mistress's apartment on Central Park West and plotted his next move but rice realized he couldn't keep slipping out back. Does ause soon enough. The feds would find him so he decided to beat them to the punch. He immediately hired a team of six attorneys and turned himself into the authorities. The next day Rice had a contingency plan. He believed that his best chance of avoiding winning a conviction was to delay the trial or to get acquitted on the charges so the conman got to work for the next year a year. Reis kept a low profile and plotted his defense then on October. Ninth Nineteen Eleven. The trial finally finally commenced rice. Did everything in his power to draw out the proceedings and to sway the jury in his favor his defense called witnesses who spent hours on the stand detailing the mundane details of B H shefty's business and with every statement made by the prosecution no matter how insignificant Rice's lawyer launched into a heated argument in defense of rice and his cronies but eventually rises underhanded. Tactics did him in. When he attempted to bribe one of the jurors he was found owned out and reported ultimately he lost his bail and was sent to tunes prison? The same prison where he spent his very. I prison sentence as a young man. Almost twenty years had passed since rice at first entered tombs. In that time he'd made a name mm for himself started multiple businesses and scams and made millions of dollars in the process. He lost all of it but as he was escorted into his new cell rice. Felt a bitter sort of irony. After all lows years he he was back way he began but his fight wasn't over yet vice knew that his stole tactics would antagonize jury and risk him an even more severe severe sentence but he forged on with each passing day. The federal government's grew more impatient. His last hope was that they would give up and make a deal but it was all for naught after five months of proceedings. Forty one year-old rice completed guilty on March seventh nineteen twelve in exchange. He was sent to jail for a year but his time in prison wasn't wasted. Rice used that year to write an autobiography of his life and schemes and gave it a title that was as irreverent as rice himself. My Adventures with your money in the book rice detailed the many cons. He'd run in his lifetime and even went as far as to teach the average reader how to replicate his successful swindles. The book didn't sell exceptionally well but it ensured sort of legacy for rice as a forefather for the modern con artist but rice is adventures. Want over though. His prison sentence could have spelled the end of his career. In crime after a lifetime of borrowed luxury and criminal habits he was too entrenched to give up now more importantly he didn't want to living on the edge of a borrowed time proved more interesting to Rice than a regular job and he was especially good at evading trouble for all his crimes games. A year in jail was next to nothing after his release rice jumped right back into the action and he continued running sketchy brokerage businesses on Wall Street for another fifteen years until he was arrested once again in one thousand nine hundred twenty ninety eight at age fifty eight once again. He employed the same stalling tactics at trial but they were less effective. This time around. He was sentenced to four years and a five thousand dollar fine when he was released.
