We Chat With Paul Sztorc of Layer 2 Labs

"We're joined here by our special guest today. Bitcoin independent economists think our programmer developer Paul storz has been on the show a couple of times before. And fresh off some interesting news from his entity layer to labs, raising $3 million very interesting, glad we can catch you. Paul, welcome. Thanks a lot for joining. Hey, thanks for having me. Yeah, so we last spoke and it was good to meet you in person in Riga at honey badger 2022 coming to my neck of the Woods in Eastern Europe. Yeah, it was great. I promise you, we'd spare the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth discussion for later for different pod. But this one I think I want to talk more about, everything that you've been doing for many, many years. And I'm interested in keen to hear some updates. I'm always up to something exactly. So what was the story with layer two labs? Is that a secret project that you had brewing for a while? Well, yeah, I was kind of like, you didn't really know what people would think of it, but yeah, actually a lot of it is sort of still secret, but I have put together some good ideas. We've got some opportunity and we've got an interesting business model, and so basically the other thing is, you know, there are all these people out there, you know, this year, especially last year, but January this year, like those ridiculous projects would raise like $250 million that won, that Facebook project, this name, I can't even I'm happy to say I can't even remember. And then Solana, they would give themselves a huge just racist enormous amount of money. was kind of like, you know, if you can't do it with like a little bit. But this is only the seed round. So I think we'll raise a second round, but that will probably be the only two rounds, but really $3 million is kind of a lot. If you're ready to think about it, I was thinking about how I don't know what you want to call it like just spending a ton of money, these other crypto companies are, it's just a scheme.

"They can think of no better way to explain this except to say that the people that are planning it and plotting it is just simply evil. Diabolical. When you look at what the Russian military has done to the people of Ukraine since this phase of its war started, you don't want to rank the horrific atrocities that they've committed, but if you did, I mean, because thousands of people have died, but if you did, what they may be planning and next could top the list because basically if they blew up this hydroelectric dam, essentially a wall of water, feet high, many feet high could just wash over entire villages, wiping out thousands of homes and people. This is a really serious thing that they're very serious thinking that Russia is planning to do this. So we really need to watch this very carefully. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Russia's equivalent Sergey shoygu spoke on the phone, one imagines that must have been a rather interesting conversation. That's right. Hillary, this was the only the second time they've spoken. In fact, they last spoke in May. So according to The Pentagon, this was an opportunity. I mean, they say this was an opportunity to connect and keep the lines of communication open in light of this ongoing war. So there is some hope there that at least our Pentagon, our military officials, have some contact with the folks in Russia. Maybe in a moment of realization by the Russians that maybe what they're doing is the wrong thing, maybe somebody there can kind of talk some sense into them, but I think this is the reason why these channels are open. And I'm told secretary Austin emphasized the importance of continuing these conversations, considering this war where it's going and the direction it's going in. Well, speaking of the direction of which way the war is going, you are in Riga Latvia with a lot of global security leaders and clearly Ukraine's dominating the conversation. What is their sense of how this might end? Sometimes the more you learn, the more you wish you didn't know. And in this particular situation, I have to say, while there have been some bright spots and some bright lights, it's becoming very clear that people here in this region are expecting this not to end soon. And it might still not end well for Ukraine. That doesn't mean Ukraine will lose this war. But what they're simply saying is they just might not win it either. It might just be a long, really difficult bloody war. And that's what the majority of people are saying. They're also saying this in part because they still have doubts about whether the west is totally committed to a long-term war. After the winter, making it through the winter is just going to be one hurdle. They're going to be others after the winter and then there's this question about who is pulling the strings in Russia and what will happen if that leadership for some reason changes will it get better or would it be worse and what we're hearing is that it wouldn't likely get any better at all.

"Be needed. Ukrainians are being asked to reduce their power usage, there could be rolling blackouts. Now there's growing concern about Ukraine's supply routes. An army general there is warning that Russian forces are likely to launch an attack from neighboring Belarus to cut off weapons and military equipment from the west. That was CBS correspondent Kimmy McCormick. Meantime, Russia's NATO neighbors are carefully watching to avoid being blindsided. Our national security correspondent JJ green reports from Latvia. There is a lot of hand wringing and nail biting across broader Eastern Europe because of what's perceived as Russia's desperation, attacking Ukraine with Iranian drones and missiles have made a bad situation worse. And here, next door in Latvia, which borders both an increasingly aggressive Russia and its silent partner Belarus, they're moving full speed ahead to secure their borders and working with NATO to make sure that if either tries anything, they'll be ready for it. But perhaps the most important thing they are doing is being that voice in western leaders ears, warning that Russia's after a lot more than just Ukraine. In Riga, Latvia, JJ green, WTO news. Police departments around the country are having a tough time hiring and retaining officers, but D.C.'s police department is having some success with its cadet core program.

The cadet corps, future recruits working on their high school diploma or associate's degree used to share space at the MPD training academy in southwest, but it's a popular program and police chief Robert Conti says they were running out of space. What we wanted to do is to mirror the training academy experience that's taking place at the training academy. Now the 99 in future recruits have their own classroom space near the anacostia metro station in southeast.

"A lush pine and birch forest outside the Latvian capital of Riga two dozen men dressed in camouflage cheer each other on is one by one, they sweat through an obstacle course running with 50 pound sandbags on their shoulders. Cheers the mom, stop watching him. He's training these recruits of Latvia's National Guard and he's tweaking his unit's regimen of military exercises based on how Russian troops are fighting in Ukraine. Since the Ukraine, you see the Russians are fighting their tactics. We watch how they fight. And learn from that. Keeping a wary eye in Moscow is almost second nature in Latvia, a country that shares a 180 mile border with Russia and was occupied by both the Russian Empire and more recently the Soviet Union and tele gained independence in 1991, Latvian defense minister artis pabrik says it's clear Russia still has imperial ambitions and the vehicles they use of force in Ukraine is a way how they neglect as a population, basically makes us to think that we need to strengthen our defense. That's why pabriks is leading the charge to reinstate compulsory military service for all latvians. The country had scrapped military conscription 15 years ago after joining NATO and the European Union, but pabrik says Russia's war in Ukraine means that Latvia needs to be prepared to fend an invader off long enough for NATO forces to fully engage. Which means if somebody invades us, we understand that they might overwhelm us with a might. But we want to be like a small hedgehog, which is many needles. So if you touch us, you will bleed a lot as well. Latvia, which has a population of around 2 million, has just 7500 active duty soldiers in its professional military backed by 1500 NATO troops, 20,000 people are in Latvia's military reserves. That's simply not enough when you have not one, but two aggressive neighbors. I mean, Russia and Valdez Mari sans, director of the center for geopolitical studies in Riga says compulsory service will strengthen Latvia's military ready forces to more than 50,000. But doing so has raised concerns about the loyalty of conscripts in the event of a conflict with Russia. A quarter of Latvia's population are ethnic Russians who consider Russian to be their mother tongue, and for some, an identity linked to Russia. There have been no different attempts to foster the integration, but it hasn't been enough. The conscription might be another way on how to foster the integrations. Anzan says young Latvian Russian speakers are less susceptible to Russian propaganda than the older generation and have shown they aren't interested in being part

"But I'm going to have to have to skip that at least for this one time. But anyway, man, I don't know. What do you think? It's been a great discussion. As we close it here, you have any other final thoughts to our listeners regarding some privacy, some base money, Bitcoin, all the rest. Yeah, I mean, again, my base money is just so important. This is the thing to look at in any comparative analysis of Bitcoin versus other shit coins. And yeah, the work you do is so valuable, man. I'm still baffled that you're the only one doing this. Like what the fuck, it's just too important of a dataset that you only want. Massive bus factor, you know? I hope you don't get taken out. And. You might actually be most wanted because you spread very dangerous information that ought to be hidden. Well, apparently, according to you, I have some shadow bands as well, and I need to tweet more about it and become more popular from that side. We'll see. We'll see how important it really is. But I do appreciate the good words at least. You know, and then just because you show how important base money is. And then just the fact that you were full node is defining verifying and enforcing the actual quantity of global based money in the Bitcoin network is just factually like it's insane. It's uncomprehensible of what that actually means. You know, to know exactly how many gold atoms there are. It's like, what? You know that it's just a loan of how that might affect economic calculation. And pricing is a massive evolution in monetary economics, I would say. But and this is where we tied to the earlier part of the conversation. How can you actually verify the total base money supply in Bitcoin? Well, every user has to broadcast every transaction so that every other user can verify every transaction of every other user and that makes it not just extremely inefficient as a database where everyone has to read everything from everyone else. But it also comes with massive privacy downsides. Because now you have to tell someone else about the transaction that you're making so that he can verify it, but that means you're revealing some information about yourself or at least that transaction to the other person. And so yeah. And this is why the economic argument of why base money analysis is so important is why I'm a Bitcoin or not a monero guy. Because monero does make privacy improvements there, but at the massive, massive, like un explanatory, hugely cost of having ambiguity in the money supply. Like cryptographic ambiguity. And that is just that's such a downgrade. Like massive downgrade economically speaking. And that's why I think we ought to stick with Bitcoin, where it's trivial to verify based money supply. And where anyone can do it. But that means that we just have to be a little bit smarter about how we construct our transactions. Because again, these transactions are publicly verified and forever recorded. So you got to be a bit smart of how you present yourself to that network. And this is where wasabi and conjoint come in. Because this is a genius way to get such a substantial amount of privacy. In a sense, like if you pay someone else, he doesn't know where you got the money, or if someone pays you, he doesn't know what you're doing with that money in the future. These broadly speaking privacy guarantees that a coin join can offer you, while still not reducing the verifiability of Bitcoin's network. It's really great. This is kind of the best of both worlds. Now with Bitcoin, we have a system where every transaction is public and can be verified so that we have this incredibly important base money statistic, but then also we can make anonymous transactions within the system if we just get our act together and be a bit smarter. And that's incredibly promising because now we have the best of both worlds perfectly private money that is still publicly auditable and it's total based money supply. And wow. I mean, these two things together, on top of that, private keys and strong encryption or strong signature cryptography rather just work, make Bitcoin unconfident and inflatable and perfectly private. And I mean, this is the Holy Grail. Seriously. I think we figured out how to do the money. So maybe we can move on to some other problems now. I love your views on that max. Very optimistic. Very forward thinking and long-term and I totally agree. I mean, when you can just in a keystroke verify, verify the UTXO set, verify the amount of base money in the Bitcoin system and take steps as well to increase your privacy, you know, obfuscating some of those UTXOs there are. There are major major implications there for money for society for wealth and everything. So that's really in sovereignty, most importantly. So it's really great stuff, really love your views, man. So listen, we're going to have to leave it there. So as we close it, should any links, any places are listeners can work on our listeners go to find out more about what you're doing. Yeah, sure, go to towards liberty dot com for all my contact info and just reach out if you have any questions or want to chat. Twitter at Hildebrand max. And that wasabi wasabi wallet dot IO. Not the other phishing sites. Make sure you're verify your signatures. Absolutely. We'll try to link to the correct ones there. Great, max. Listen, man, thank you very much for coming on so much to talk about. We're going to have to do it again soon. And if not, at least in the meantime, see you very soon in Riga. Yeah, thanks very much, Matthew. And I'm so stoked for Riga. Being back in your backyard is going to be fun, looking forward to the hour long endless conversations to late night. So also for the listeners, get over there, say hi, and we'll talk base money. It'll be fun. Thanks for the invite Matthew. Thanks for coming on, buddy. Talk soon, have a great weekend, max.

"My first book. But I felt like, would you just tell that story because I felt like that also, again, was getting in touch with, you know, this human dimension in this force of friendship. Yeah. Also, it's an ingredient. And it's a joyful thing to remember that that's an ingredient when we change the world. Absolutely. So this is from my first book when one of the episodes I looked at was a in this moment where Jews were not allowed to leave the Soviet Union. Many of them applied to leave and were immediately rejected. And then sort of had to live these pariah existences of you'd lose your job. My kicked out of your apartment, people looked at you as not a good Soviet citizen. And it was in kind of an endless possibly endless limbo where you'd never know if ever you would get permission to leave. So in this context in the early 1970s, a group of Jews in Riga Latvia, part of the Soviet Union at the time, they decided to do something very bombastic and attention getting to kind of make the world aware of their plight, which is they decided they would they saw that there was a plane flying along the border. That the Finnish border that was a small 15 seater plane and they in their group they had a pilot. And what they would do is they'd get on the plane, the plane made one stop, so they would disarm tie up the pilot, leave them on the ground. They wanted to do goodbye. They were even going to leave them with a bottle of vodka. They want to hurt anybody. And then take the plane and fly it to Sweden, not Finland, because there was an extradition treaty with Finland, and get out of the plane and announce the world that they had suffered so much not being able to leave. The Soviet Union that they had had to take this dramatic action, the Soviet Union can have its plane back, but they just wanted to be free. So the Soviets were very much onto them from the first moment, the KGB files. They had tons of informants. They knew exactly what was happening. And at the moment where they stepped onto the tarmac, they arrested them. And there was a very quite a dramatic trial that the Soviets wanted to use as a show trial to make it clear that this whole burgeoning movement was actually a group of what they called hooligans. People who were just looking to cause mischief, hijackers, not actually people with a real cause. But instead, the news that came out of the trial were these courtroom statements that were incredibly moving from the defendants about how the only thing they really wanted was just to live outside of this world where they felt very discriminated against. And so the Soviets sentenced the two leaders of the group to death. And the other ones to very long prison terms. And the outcry from the world was so extreme that they ended up commuting the death sentences and shortening the prison terms, which was pretty unprecedented. For the Soviets to respond in that way. So this was a big crack in the wall when it comes to this movement because it made people aware of the cause. But the story you were asking about is that in order to research this episode, I got to know all of the hijackers who were part of this. And now they're like in their 50s and 60s. Yeah, even a little bit older. And I happen to be I happen to be they mostly live in Israel. And I happen to be there when they had the 35th anniversary of the hijacking, which they get together every year of the big cake with 35 written on it. In a barbecue. And by that point I had done so much research that these were heroes to me and they'd been largely forgotten by Israeli society. And so I got to hang out with them. And there was something so revelatory about that experience because I just saw how this was a group of friends who had kind of, it was very clear that they could have been how they would have egged one another on. And each one of them on their own might not have committed such an act of bravery, really. And almost suicide, because they knew at some point that the KGB was onto them and for sure they might be killed in the process. So they were really sort of committing almost a fatal form of trying to gain awareness for their cause. But I just saw them as a group and I thought, oh, this dynamic. This is what made them actually take this step. It wasn't any one of them individually. It was the fact of them in communion with one another as friends. And it kind of made me understand their story so much differently because it felt like unbelievably courageous to have done this at all. But then seeing how they interacted with one another and the sort of joy they took in being together, it really changed my perception of that whole episode. Yeah, I love that. So I know we're speaking as this book, the quiet before it's just entering the world, but I understand that you met over Zoom with an 8th grade social studies class. I did. Yeah. And they had read, I guess, the introduction. And I'm so curious to hear yeah, these are these are young humans who've grown up with media as we know it now. I remember when I had to teach my son how to how to address an envelope on a letter of that he was like 18 and he didn't know. So I'm just so curious about what their questions and observations were and how they perhaps were different from yours and what you learned from that exchange. They were wonderful, first of all, they were so willing and eager to sort of understand they're studying social movements. So I was sort of coming into talk to them from a place of this expertise gained from the book. And the first thing that was funny was that they, it's very hard for them to imagine doing something in an analog world. They're so part of the fabric of their reality. How could a meme not be involved when you're talking about social movements? Isn't that what a social movement is? But I have to say their questions were kind of more searching than anything else. They wanted to understand sort of how you recreate the thing that I'm talking about. How do you step away? They were looking for prescriptions. Which I found to be hopeful because even if it was difficult for them to sort of imagine what change could mean without this particular tool, they've become very familiar with what they do everything on. They said, well, how do you do it? How do you find the quiet? What's that process like? Each kind of asking it in different ways. But it made me, it did make me think that they had the capacity if they were if they were asking the question. If you look around our world now, where do you I mean, obviously there's an inherent contradiction in this question because part of what you're doing is talking about things that can only be seen decades later. And that's kind of the point of it. But what are you observing now that might be something that someone 30 years from now looks at and says, oh, there's a beginning. There's a quiet beginning. Yeah. I mean, it's not even so quiet, but I have to say, one of the things lately that I've been aware of that I think we've all been aware of to some extent is that the activism around climate change. And particularly young people, and I find it, I find it very hopeful, some of the conversations that I've heard recently are a real rejection of the performative Ness of not just politicians actions. But of anybody who is on social media kind of making a big deal about something they're doing. They're interested in getting back to basics and figuring out alternatives. And there is a sense that the way to do that is on a much smaller scale. And to me, that's to me that's hopeful. I see similar conversations happening around police reform. Particularly among the activists that I spoke to. Those are two areas that are demanding a lot of imagination. If you want to rethink how we're going to approach this crisis of climate change, it seems to me the way that we've been doing things or the way we've imagined we can change things is not working. So. The avenues for picturing what could work have to we have to establish those. We have to create the spaces where that can occur. And I think that I feel like there is the young people are in some ways more conscious of at least the ones that I've heard talk about these issues. They're conscious of the way that something like social media distorts what they do. And they have the awareness to push it away or at least keep it at arm's length. And use it as a tool and see its limitations. The question, just in the light of all these things we've been.

Meeting Near Russian Border, NATO Weighs Response to Moscow

"Meanwhile, other news across the world, the U.S. and allies are weighing a response to the Russian military build up around the world. There's a meeting of NATO foreign minister. You know, Anthony blinken comes in. I have very good friends with very good friends with Tony blanken and they love him. But I do think he's the smallest guy in every room. And I think that matters when you're talking about Putin and Putin is planning to invade the Ukraine. It's not like it's a secret. He got a 100,000 people there. If you wanted to turn, send some NATO trips to Ukraine. That's how you deter it. All right? So they're not doing that because they don't want to have a war with them. And if you don't have a war with them, you're not really deterring them. Unless you send Ukraine, every anti tank weapon there is, and every artillery piece and everything else that can be used to blow up Russian tanks. Because that's what's coming in. Not little green men but Russian tank. So this is not having meetings in Riga Latvia, do not do the trick. That's not going to do it. What's going to do it is serious

The Germans in the northwest still posed a major threat. They had captured Riga at the end of August and forced the Russian army to fall back. Then on September 28th, the Germans launched a naval operation into the gulf of Riga aimed at capturing three strategic islands, which, if captured, would allow the Germans to ferry their armies around behind the newly dug out Russian defensive line..

Covid-19 vaccine supply is running low. Here’s how Biden hopes to fix that

"Vaccine has really hit home, leaving many people around here scrambling to sign up for scarce vaccination appointments and others seeing their appointments canceled. But President Biden tonight announced what he calls aggressive steps that his administration is taking to fight the virus, including ordering more vaccine. This is a war time undertaking. It's not hyperbole. And as such, I directed the team to be ready to exercise all the authorities I have under the Defense Production Act and expedite these vaccine. The administration plans to buy another 100 million doses each from Fizer and Madonna with the goal of having enough vaccine for almost the entire U. S population by the end of the summer. Joining us live to talk about it tonight, CBS NEWS Medical contributor Dr David Vegas. There's been so much ugliness and figure pointing over the past four years, Doctor, I don't mean toe Add to it. But who is responsible for this? Because it seems like this point, we should be in a better position regarding vaccines than we are. Yeah, we're in a great position of the vaccines work, and they're safe. That is a remarkable accomplishment. But the rollouts where the federal government said every state can make their own decisions on how to do it, and the method didn't work well. And so the states were so concerned with testing and other things that they really didn't develop plans that, obviously or efficient where the majority of vaccines there were significant numbers sitting in freezers. Rather than in people's arms. So hopefully that is starting to change and more vaccines. You're getting into arms. You said, sitting in freezers. Does that mean they're around? But just not where they need to be. Oh, yeah. I mean, there's a significant number of vaccines that have not yet been administered. Many are being saved for the second shot, but certainly we need to get vaccines out quick. And you know now that we have a more reliable supply chain, we can give all of the vaccines understanding that more vaccines. They're coming down the road to give that second shot. The more people we vaccinate now. More. We can stop the virus and stop they. You know the ramifications, which is the devastation the virus is causing. So you are sounds like you're very much an advocate of whatever you have in your freezer. Now in your fridge. Whatever the facility is get it out to people now. Don't worry about the second shot because there's more on the way. Yeah, I mean, listen, What President Biden just said, is that World War and we're in a war on our soil, so we need to get those taxiing down. If the second vaccine is a week or two or three late. That doesn't really matter. It won't hurt the efficacy it all. There's some data that may actually be beneficial. But we need to vaccinate as many people as possible with that first shot, and then that second set so they could be protected. We're seeing record numbers of hospitalizations and deaths across the country in many places, and obviously we need to intervene. And then we're starting to see variants which are mutations of the virus happened. The more the virus is spreading, the more it can change and we don't want that. What do you think of a plan, and it may be too late to go back now. But what do you think of a plan where we started out and just said, if you're between 80 and 100 years old Plus you get it first and then 60 to Haiti and then the younger people rather than all of these breakdowns, with first responders and supermarket workers and the complexity of it all. Yeah, I think we have to be very simple here on. Certainly many states have overthought this and you know the details were just too complex. You look at countries like Israel that had a remarkably efficient roll out and it was by decade. We know the greatest risk factor for complication from this virus is a judge. And so certainly doing it by decade makes a lot of sense medically and also, you know, delivery wise would be much easier, and at the same time we need a standard way of doing it across the country. The notion of one state doing it differently is encouraging vaccine tourism people traveling to other places, and then we need a standard registration system so people can pre register. When they get there. They can get the vaccine that could be followed. And they can go home rather than having to fill out paperwork and register. In many cases. What do you think about the plan to get 300 Million people vaccinated by fall? Does it seem reasonable and doable? I think it's doable. I really think it's doable. We have two vaccines. Now that work. We have a second one, a third one that we should hear about shortly, which is Johnson and Johnson. And then we have AstraZeneca, which is the vaccine that we have intensive million's already produced that has been approved elsewhere in the world that will be approved here. So what those four vaccines I really think it's doable. And you know, we are lucky we're seeing, you know, shocked by how well these vaccines work and health safe. They are and you know, every time it kind of brings an emotion to me that science came through. Sure appreciate that. And we could hear that in your voice. Dr Rigas. Thank you very much. Thank you. CBS News Medical contributor Dr David Vegas as we learn about a plan by the president and the new administration tonight to buy a couple 100 more vaccines and to try to have 300 million people vaccinated for covert by the fall, stay with

"Good morning thank you for joining us. Yesterday we completed the first part of shoe soho section in the in the buddha hall and the endo and today it will present the case and mytalk and then open it up for questions and answers so let's begin attention. Were you gate asked shweibi. What's the meaning of the ancestors coming from the west. Shweibi said going at the chin. Rest for me. Were you gave brought the chin. Rest four shweibi sri be then treated him to blow review gay remarked. Hit me if you wish but there is still no meaning in the ancestors coming from the west later. Were you asked i. What's the meaning of the ancestors coming from the west reside said. Go get the cushion for me. You gave brought the cushion to rent. Buy in rings. I treated him to a blow. Were you gave remarked. Hit me if you wish but there's still no meaning to the ancestors coming from the west later. Still when you gave was living in a temple among said osho. In former times you asked shweibi and ren's by about the meaning of the coming of the ancestor. Did they both clarify it or not. Regain replied they clarified it all right but there's still no meaning in the ancestors coming from the west. I appreciate this co on. I appreciate all the masters who have come before and those who will carry on the teachings sitting with his co on for almost three months was a rollercoaster ride. Everything is contained within it. So that when i looked into it or through it i see myself. All my attitudes and behaviors my delusional thinking my twisted karma. My determination revealed in one cohen. That's the power of this practice. Of course it comes across as tears in moods smiles and laughter self-doubt grandiose generosity kindness. It looks like everyday life. Cohen appears as everyday life. Because it is what else is there and it is magnificent and painful joyful. An undressed bubble so much to uncover and so much hiding in plain sight and i have been passed on it. This cohen is still very much a work in progress. For me like riga. I don't find answers very satisfying. It doesn't feel done. It feels like there is still something that needs clarifying. And that's okay. When i started this practice. I wanted answers. Concrete answers even if they were unsettling especially if they were unsettling. I wanted my rattled with new answers. Maybe just like you re you. Gay seems to be persistent in steadfast resolute. He is vexed by a question in seeks to answer those qualities span the centuries you lived in china from early nineteenth century to early tenth century. Apparently he left home when he was fourteen years old became a monk and then traveled a great deal. He studied with many different teachers shweibi. Ren's being two of them before eventually becoming a student of chosen ryoko founder of the soto school in china. In this cohen reggae asks shweibi what was then and still is basic zen question what is the meaning of the ancestors coming from the west the ancestor being bodey dharma. He introduced senator chan buddhism to china travelling west from india. So you gave poses this question to sweetie Be asks regain for the chin rest.

The Congolese Doctor Who Discovered Ebola

"At the beginning of an epidemic, it's essential to discover the source of the disease. For scientists who do that work, it's extremely challenging and without risk to their own health. But the scientists who played an essential role in discovering bulla way back in nineteen, seventy six doesn't always get the credit he deserves in today's episode. We explore the history of a bowl and the consequences of scientific exploitation. It's part of our week of episodes here on the show celebrating and recognizing the contributions of black scientists enjoy. You're listening to shortwave. From NPR. Safai here with none other than NPR East Africa correspondent Ater, Peralta Hey there ater. Hey, Mattie, thank you so much for talking to us all the way from Kenya. I know there's like an eight hour time difference. I am thrilled. But I want to open with a quick question. Who discovered Ebola and do not Google it. First of all. How dare you asked me a question? I should definitely know the answer to, and don't and yeah I already, Google Bet. Came up was. A Belgian microbiologist, but I think you're about to tell me. There's more to this there. Absolutely, there always is right so. Cheated. What you probably saw is a bunch of white westerners like. Dr John Jack. Yembeh does not yeah. He was not one of the people that came up. Yes, so, he's Congolese doctor and today he's doing really important work heading up the response to the current Ebola outbreak in Congo, but back in nineteen, seventy six, we embed. First doctor to. COLLECT ANY BOLA sample. His crucial role in discovering Bolla is often just a footnote, a lot of the history of people. Has Been Written? Without your name. Yes but. You know this Yes it. Did Not quite. Today on the show correcting the record on a Bola, the story of Dr, John Jack Mugabe and what he's doing now to ensure African scientists are part of writing it's. To some in the medical community, it's a controversial move. Okay Ater, so we're talking about a Congolese Dr John, Shaq. And his role in discovering a bola. When do we begin? So when I sat down with him at his office in Kinshasa. He said we should start in. Hundred seventy three. We had just gotten his PhD microbiology at the Riga Institute in Belgium, and he could have stayed in Europe, but he decided to come back to Congo, but when I arrive via. The condition of work were not I had no lab have no. Mice for experimentation, so it was very difficult to work here. Yeah, it's tough to do lab work without a lab, you know. Without a library to instead he took a job as a field epidemiologist and just a couple of years later in Nineteen seventy-six. was sent from Kinshasa the capital of Congo to the village of Yambuku to investigate a mysterious outbreak. it's the first recorded outbreak of Ebola, but no one knew that at the time they thought maybe it was typhoid or yellow fever, and he goes to this local hospital, and he says he finds it completely empty. Why was nobody there? Local residents thought the hospital was the source of the infection and people had died there. But in the morning when they heard Giambi was sent from the capital, the thought he had medicine till they started to come back to the hospital, and we started seeing patients. So so, what's he seeing? When the patients come in, he was seeing. People who were very weak fever? They had headaches I started to to make the physical time. But at that time will have no gloves. And, of course he had to draw blood, but when I removed. They're the sit inch. Both continue to spread out. What I am to see these phenomenal. And also my fingers or with a bow. Wow. Yeah, so he says he he would wash his hands a lot, but really he says it was just luck that he didn't catchable. Yeah, definitely I mean. That's amazing that he's in there and there's no gloves and there's patients and they don't really know what's going on, and he was able to not get it in at this point. We MP he was startled. But then three nurses died that night and a Belgian nun who was working in the village, also got sick with fever. All the nuns had been vaccinated against typhoid and yellow fever. So at this point me MBA was like. Oh, it's probably not those things. Yeah! I mean in the severity to the deaths with this outbreak. He started to realize that this was something different, so he. He convinced one none took back to Kinshasa with him. So what happens next? She died at a hospital a couple of days later, but he took blood samples, and he sent them to Belgium for testing and the guy on the other end that was Peter Piot. Who at the time was with the Institute for Tropical Medicine in Belgium, the guy who turned up from Google search. Yeah. That's right, and so he and other scientists start working to identify the culprit. The CDC in the US gets involved and the realize. This is a new virus that caused hemorragic. Call it Ebola. They name it after a river by the village where it was discovered. So, what you saw out in the field, the blood samples guide all of this plays a crucial role in the history of right. It was huge, but it's PR who gets the bulk of the credit for discovering all up and you can tell this bothers John Jock membe. If you don't recognize the work done in the field, I, it is not correct. it is a team. You know it is a team. Pr Actually wrote a memoir no time to lose and he does mention. But just in passing as a bright scientist, whose constantly pestering him for more resources. Has talked about this well. Peter Pyatt, facetime video, so I got on the phone. He's now the director of the prestigious London, School of Hygiene and tropical medicine and I asked him if he felt at all responsible for writing. Out of his history of Ebola I think that's a comment, but my book less not an attempt to write than that's history of Boll and sold more. My personal experience is more biographies that sense. Was this kind of like an awkward conversation to have ater. Yeah I mean especially because he's Belgian and Belgium was the colonial power in Congo. Ultimately, he looks at it with a little bit of distant. That at the time African scientists they were simply excluded and white scientists parachuted in they took samples, wrote papers that were published in the West and they took all the credit he so he actually said he did. In that actually surprised me and I think. Part of the reason. I feel that he so comfortable. Talking about this is because he's in an academic setting. I think in universities across the world. Students are talking about privilege, so he seems like he is very comfortable having this conversation right now. I mean there's there's something very weird kind of about that coming from him right as a person who has admitted to taking part in exploitative science, absolutely and one of the good things is that he says that things are changing. We mbappe for example has received several international awards just recently for pioneering. The first effective treatment for Ebola reflects our stinky you. Say the politicians in global health in science, General. So okay. I want to ask you about the treatment in a minute, but to put it very bluntly. Have there actually been any concrete steps to try to change this power dynamic in the global health field? Because this is certainly not one of you know two stories. This is one of many many stories. There is I mean look. NBA has made a decision that many thought unthinkable leaving just a few years ago, he decided that all of the blood samples collected during this most recent Ebola. Epidemic will stay in Congo, so if anyone wants to study this outbreak, they will have to come to his institute. I bet that has ruffled some feathers though. I have I've heard from some American scientists. Who have privately expressed frustrations in the are really the ones who have led the way in studying Ebola, but peanut understands that decision when you think about how African scientists have been historically treated, and he says that Western scientists should just get over it. We have to wake up key things one. The world is changing too much endless Nah it's so weird to hear him say a matter of fairness, ater matter of fairness. Okay, so before we move on, tell me about the treatment that Mugabe worked on. So this is the thing that makes him smile right. We embiid calls it the most important achievement of his life, and it goes back to one thousand, nine, hundred, five during another equal outbreak in Congo. Eighty one percent of people infected with Ebola in this village were dying, and he wondered if antibodies developed bipolar survivors could be siphoned from their blood and used to treat new cases, so he gave sick patients transfusions of blood from a bowl of survivors. Too He injected Ebola patients with the blood of survivors. It vision. And seven survive, he says the medical establishment brought him off because he didn't have a control group. That's what they told him. But if this idea was accepted by scientists. We see a lot of life. Okay I mean to be fair. That is a really small group with no control among some other stuff. But on the other hand, it doesn't mean that he was wrong. You know that it should be totally dismissed, and maybe if more scientists looked into, it collaborated with him, maybe tried to replicate that data in some way, they could have learned something with him right because we now know that he was in fact correct about the antibodies. Yeah, I mean that's right in the context is important because I think what really eat set him. Is that maybe lots and lots of people could have been saved during the West. West Africa outbreak, which happened from two thousand, thirteen to two, thousand sixteen, and look just this year that science became the foundation of what is now proven to be the first effective treatment against the Bulla that is saving seventy percent of the people who are treated with amazing. Is He getting credit for that? At this point, he is yeah, absolutely okay, so how does look back on all of this week? What's what's his view on this is so he's he seventy seven, so he's obviously thinking about his legacy. One of the things that he told me is that he's always dreamed that big science could come out of Congo, and partly because of him, that's more likely happen. He got a commitment from Japan to build a state of the art research facility in Kinshasa and in the lab, just a few feet from his office where we talked US scientists were using advanced machines to sequence DNA of the Bulla samples that have to stay here in Congo Okay so moon bay, doctor and scientists who started in the Congo with no lab has a lab and is soon getting an even better one to do his work. Yeah, exactly, yeah, now I have my share. In. So I have my I have. A good subculture will bring joy. But he also has vice rate with micro biologist without Nice, I, asked myself that every day. And, so you know what he says, his biggest legacy won't be that. He helped to discovery or cure for it. It'll be if another young Congolese. Scientist finds himself with an interesting blood sample. He'll be able to investigate it

Cam Gets Signed

"Well there was big news coming last night. Courtesy of our Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen former MVP cam. Newton is a free agent. No more instead Newton is heading to new. England to join forces with bill, Belichick and follow in the footsteps of another MVP Tom Brady. And Cam Newton's cryptic fashion. He had this to say the instagram. I'm excited because I know what right now all praise to God dropping contact tomorrow. I hope you're ready Hashtag. Let's go pat. And so now we know, and we'll start with Adam Schefter, and our health hall of Famer. Steve Young One one. Just tell us how we got here. How did this deal get done? Listen I think it took Cam Newton a little bit of time to recognize that there was not a thirty plus million dollar a year job on the market when you released two weeks into the free agent signing period not only that there's not an obvious starting job that's out there, and so the longer this went on, and the less he heard from teams, and there really was nobody that he heard from the more he recognized that he had to find the right spot. And if you're going to find the right spot, there's nothing wrong with taking new. England Riga tour with Bill Belichick and Josh mcdaniels, and the new quarterbacks coach Jed fish in an offense. That obviously is going. Going to be trying to replace Tom Brady where you're competing with the guy like Jarret, Stidham hasn't proven that he can play yet in the NFL and so cam. Newton goes to New England on a one year deal where he gets to reestablishes value show that he's healthy, and over the shoulder and foot injuries that he has been dealing with the last two years, and this is the the place that he now tries to relaunch his NFL career at the age of thirty one, which should be most quarterbacks, the prime of their career, no question and Adam. How likely is it that this is in effect? A one year auditioned for Cam to be with the Patriots beyond this season. Wendy what I would say is this if Cam Newton plays well, the Patriots obviously would be interested in resigning him, and if not, they have the ability to move on from him. It depends on how the year goes. It's difficult to forecast that right now. All we know is that the Patriots signed a former. Most Valuable Player who won that award in two thousand fifteen, who has tremendous ability who goes into this offense, and now we'll have to learn it, which is not going to be an easy task in a shortened off season for put as the ability to be dominant quarterback. If he can pick up that system if he plays that way, you would think that no one would not let him out. Out, the door, but again there's a whole year. They WANNA see Newton. They WANNA see them. They want to see a year goes to. It's truly to say that just yet well. Yeah, I mean a lot can happen in a year. We've all we've all seen that in Steve. How do you like the fit between cam? Newton and what he brings on the field and the New England patriots. When healthy. Rusted Cam Newton mean it's like. Manna from heaven right I mean in many ways I, think Josh, mcdaniel and Bill Belichick sitting around a lot of times. Saying. Could you imagine what we could do with this guy or that? Guys? They play these players. Run the League, and they see them in places where I'm sure they say because they're supreme of conference. Not Hubris just supreme confidence that if we could get a hold of him what we could do with him, and we can really expend on what you're seeing around the league. What we can do is special, and so I'm sure they're saying this about. If Cam comes in his foot is okay. Because we know the arm is all right, we should. We saw that early last year before. So. We know that he's healthy. If his what is good and he can move, you've got. Hungry. Sophisticated and the type caliber Blair in New England, where you have bill and Josh saying you can't imagine what we're GonNa, do with this kid and so I think that's I. think that's the conversation. That's happening right now. New England, Steve. Look it's anybody's guess at this point, but you. You have an opinion very qualified one. What do you believe the likelihood? Is that Cam Newton? Is the Patriots Starting Quarterback Week One? Again if healthy, if he can move around, I can't imagine them with his talent level, and what they think they can do them again. It becomes a you know it's a proof point for what they're out to show their out to show that we can do special things with special players, and so it's it becomes A. A right of passage to be in New England, and that we can take somebody, and we can show you amazing things that can be done and they've done that with flair after play after player so Cam Newton and healthy can move around. I. It's GonNa be, too. It's like a gravitational force when it's to special to be able to show what they can do with a great Cam Newton. Yeah,

"Fuel thing with me to talk. What was a very busy day indeed? Yeah. Let's start the top and work our way down. Bein ending the season than normal riga ways. On unbelievable season of volume. With thirteen points and it was some time ago. We thought maybe we could have a chance. Then winning signal do not park by an wanted without Kim h goal at the end of the day. They have hundred goals hundred goals directly from seventy one seventy two season. I think was hundred. One and eleven dusky getting thirty four goal. They've had a fantastic season, not only winning two titles so kind of dominant, but also getting a young team out there they have. They have a new generation of young players. There are more to expect to come on so that don't terrifically. I just thinking that the violence wasn't Nolan season that we would have had to Champions League. Finish there would be my great great favorite to win that one as well, but now we have to see how this July month and a half of the August would have to do on their form. If I know the Germans well, they would probably be unbelievable prepared for that, too. Meanwhile! How much do we give Dortmund apart? And then there was nothing state for this game. Or how much do we say come on? You know it's still a match. You still got pride that yeah off nine. Come in and do what they did. It's embarrassing the goalkeeper Burke you said after the game that maybe we attitude of course relaxed winning mentality that they. At by him, that was embarrassing. Rich, the strike of health finance scoring four goals in that game. What a day for them! Hoffman I'm coming into European League on Directorship position in a group stays there, but embarrassing of Dolt within we talked about that game before before the game started, and this was the start of a new season, top got the confirmation that it would be the coach next year by by Director Sore yesterday, but still this is so embarrassing that he was stocked with. With we kind of bad thing going into a new season to the Phantom, they've had a quite okay season. They ought second best in Germany after the team that everybody knows as the best team in the world. Still they have a problem winning the big points on the two last home games is said to against losing to nil against mines, and then no fort mill against a health and I'm on. Thank God for that.

Drones for helping the COVID fight

"Who would have ever thought that a drone could help in the fight against Kovic? Romeo Derbyshire is out there doing it. He works for. Dj The drone manufacturer. And he's going to tell you all about it today. Romeo Howard using drones to help in this fight Jefferson. It's good to see again. It's been a little while since the last time we talk. A lot has changed since and We're we're seeing this global endemic. That has a huge impact for so many of us. I'm but we're also seeing amazing ways that new technologies being used and integrated to help especially our first responders and we launched our disaster relief program for Colored Nineteen at middle of March to PR- provide fire departments and police departments with not only the hardware but also our suport on utilizing this to help fight covet in various different ways and part of the program was a pay it. Forward component in essence. The departments have to be willing to work with us to capture lessons. Learned we've also seen a department. That was extremely creative with the use of drones one of our smaller platforms. Maverick to enterprise used ability to put a speaker on it so you can do one way communication and after you know the first few weeks of people being at home not being able to go out. They came up with this great idea. If a child in their community has a birthday they can sign up on the on the website and if there is a an available police unit or fire unit. They will go to to the child's home and outside the home run the sirens and waste the kid and and wish you happy birthday but this department also used the drone with the speaker to fly on the front yard and sing happy birthday through the speaker and to me. That's a wonderful us because this is community building. This is something fun and put smiles on. Not only the people fate on the tug faces but also the parents and so that to me was one of the more creative ways now what happened in Tulsa in Tulsa especially in California but Often Tulsa. We'VE DENSITY OF HOMELESS POPULATION. And that's an at risk group of individuals not only uncovered nineteen but also around the entire rest of the year and so- drones are being used to help bring information To those homeless camps that sometimes are in difficult areas to get to. And you don't necessarily WanNa send a nurse or a doctor down the difficult path but if you create Station where they can come to that they know that. Hey we will. We have a nurse. A doctor on standby personal hygiene kits available for you have some sued and water And and Houston drove to to give that message to those homeless population camps. That's just another additional way to be more active and cover a much larger area in shorter periods of time. And when you're not doing public safety what are some of the images that you like to capture on your drum like the two right behind me? Riga Latvia and Coppleson Luca's in Mexico. I love aerial photography The creative aspect of areas to talk because Again you know for for so many years we have been taking pictures from an eye level perspectives. And now just going up a few seat a changes the way we can see our environment and then you can do create if things like in this one. I did the little worm hole where everything looks very different than in real life and you can be creative and can have sun and explore your environment from a different perspective. Just follow the local laws and regulations. And you'll be fine

Whats driving the explosion in Lyme Disease in Canada?

"Today disease a complicated disease that we are having trouble testing for a disease. We never expected to see with any regularity in Canada only to realize perhaps too late. Maybe that was Donald. No this is not a new virus from across the world world. It's not some weird superbug. It's not particularly contagious illness. You probably don't think much about until it makes headlines because somebody famous something was wrong with Justin Bieber last year and we saw him with visas. Arm We we now know what was going on here. Justin Bieber has lime disease but it is a mistake to think of lyme disease as a rare illness because all of the data we have and we still don't have enough shows that it is exploding in Canada with numbers of confirmed cases spiking every year. Get One guess as to why but even that is not the key problem here what we need to figure out and fast is a comprehensive way to test for your dial and treat lyme disease because that's where we lag behind almost everybody else. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Janet sperling is a PhD candidate at the University of Alberta. She is also a board member number on the Canadian lyme Disease Foundation. Hello Janna why. Don't you just start I think all of us the term but maybe just explain what what lime disease is sure. Lime disease is one of the more complicated things you would hope that I should be able to say. Oh lime disease is You know a bacterial curiel owners and it's transmitted by tick but unfortunately when you peek under the covers it gets a little more complicated so if you go to the government of Canada website. And you'll see that lyme disease is Berea Bergdorf Ri- and you say Oh. Okay that's nice and easy I can follow what they're trying to say but now if we just step over the border a little bit to Minnesota and we look up the male clinic they say lyme disease is four main species of bacteria and then they list four types of Berea so now you know your head is spinning you say okay. Well what do they say in Europe so if we go due to Europe and we go for example to Germany we see lyme disease is caused by spy. Rookie Berea Bergdorf. Wry sense allow to which means it's a whole bunch of different Burrito So this is part of the reason that we're ending up with a really complicated answer to what ought not be a very simple question. Why do various countries disagree so much on precisely what it is? That's not the case with most of viruses or diseases. I assume right and I think this is one of the things when I first started like you know back in the nineteen eighties and I took my medical entomology. They said lime disease is a disease it happens in North America. It's transmitted by so I wrote that down on my exam tonight. Got One hundred percent and everybody said great and I said to myself boy. I'm caught. I live in Canada. 'cause I don't need to worry about lyme disease but the more we started to find out notable lime disease and the more we realized it is actually in Europe. It's been in Europe for a very very long time for example You know it sees the iceman man who was found You know he's Bronze Age. I think you know we back in a gleese your those fraud. He had evidence of lime disease. So we know you you know. We've had lyme disease around for a long time. People just didn't recognize it as lime disease so the more you look into it. The more you see that this is something that's called us a Nautica Kasese so it's found circulating in the wildlife and then he kinda jumps over to the people although the disease itself Rigas and aiming for are people so this isn't something like measles measles something that goes from one person to the other person. This is something that's circulating in. It's got Birds is involved in this cycle. It's got animals. You know deer mice all sorts of things so this is why it just becomes more and more complicated. The more you look at it and and of course as a person who's suffering from lung disease you really don't care about all that background just saying I'm sick. Just get better and that advantage of being a bacteria tirrenia is that means we can use antibiotics so I think previously people were being treated for lyme disease without even actually recognizing was lime disease. assise they had antibiotics for some other reasons. They got better. Everybody said okay. I don't know what it was but they're better now. We're very concerned that we want want to make sure that we don't over use the antibiotics so that ends up making it even more complicated so we have the people we know they're sick. We know that got got bit by a tick. We know that something is wrong so some of the doctors are saying okay. We'll give them the antibiotic conceive to get better so those people all say. I think it's lyme disease and other people say I don't think it was on disease at all. It was something else it was transmitted by tick. But it wasn't lime disease so now we've taken a really complicated problem and we've really muddied the waters. We have people who say I have lime disease and other people who say whatever it was. It wasn't lime disease but I'm glad they got better so if the waters are so muddy and to your point the description you gave about learning about lyme disease in the eighties was precisely as much much as I knew about. LYME disease period Why are we discussing it so much more frequently right now? Are we seeing spike. Absolutely and I think it's certainly only with the global climate change we're getting the tick has expanded its range so you know back in the nineteen eighties. Certainly ticks. Albertus stopped about sort of middle. The problems you didn't have to go very far. Well now. They're all the way out into the Yukon. So this is something that's changed. It's it's new. I think we've always had you know a a couple of topics here and there and the other place but now it's much bigger. We know that most Canadians live right along the US border so we know most of our population is sort of super at risk as the ticks start moving north. Do we have a sense of how quickly the problem is getting worse like. Do you guys have have numbers on no matter how quickly the number of cases arising well we don't we don't have numbers because the numbers are set to be very very specific to Berea Maria br door fry and then it's particular string thirty one that somebody described in Boston Massachusetts lyme Connecticut down in that end so for Canada. It's kind of difficult to say can say you know if you're looking very strictly for one type of Lyme disease we know that the numbers have increased hugely sleep but we also know it would be kind of unlikely that we're just Columbia would have exactly the same type of lime disease as Boston Massachusetts. You know there's a latta kilometers in between the two and then also There's huge mountain range and then to make at one stage more complicated the even have different species of tick so this is where people get annoyed because they say I'm sick. I think I have lime disease because you treated me as though I have lime disease but still it's been denied as being lined disease or even anything like lyme disease. Why don't we have a simple test that can categorize it as one of what may be many kinds of lyme disease for instance right? Well we do if your dog so if your dog your jet can in Cohen tests the dog and say okay you have a sick dog. The dog is Being picked up to have this general sense of this says lyme disease lyme Berea of some sort so your vet will probably just treat your dog and say I'm calling lime disease good enough for me taking antibiotics and get better. Okay but humans but humans don't have exactly the same immune response so a dog has a much stronger immune response so it makes it easier when you're a VAT and and also with the humans. People are so readable antibiotics that you have to absolutely meal the diagnosis before they're willing to give you the antibiotics in the first place and that makes sense because we have talked on this podcast in the past about the need to not use antibiotics. Unless it's serious I guess what's flung meal. A little bit is that this can be a disease. That's it's on the rise that's diagnosed in many places around the world and they're still not the same kind of credible test that can determine like okay. You need antibiotics. Let's go right and I think partly it's because it circulates among birds. It circulates among various little mice and small rooms all the way up to deer and that each one of these animals. This part of this really complicated cycle the deer can actually clear the infection so for example if I had a tick and I knew that that had most recently fed on a bird I would be quite worried or if I knew had most recently said on a most but if I knew knew that the last thing that tick fed on was a dear I wouldn't be very worried at all I would say. Oh okay. Fortunately that's very low risk from that particular tech so this is where I think people especially if your doctor and you've got somebody and they have very nonspecific symptoms because that's one of the problems. There's nothing that's really obviously. This is exactly lime disease. You know you can't stand the front of the room and say okay. People have lime disease and these people don't have lime disease so oh you look people. They've got these nonspecific symptoms. And you're saying I know they're sick but I just don't know what it is. We're going to start looking at a lot of different things. So there's this a big list of differential diagnoses. You need to go through. And then when it gets the bottom of the list you always have lime disease. And that's something that was missed for for many many decades and for example I live in Alberta. And we're still told. Oh you can't have lime disease because you live in Berta but the silly thing is to people travel awful and when people are traveling. It doesn't matter where I live. Where my house addresses if I live in Alberta maybe got it in California maybe I got it in Toronto? Well in speaking of California you probably knew at some point in this interview. I was going to mention Justin Bieber. Indeed and it gets back to kind of the problem that you're describing reading because when celebrities like that come out and announced that they've been battling lyme disease it often seems like he has the best medical care in the world right. He compay millions of dollars for the very best doctors and yet still People were worrying about him for months before he came forward. Exactly and that's I think it's actually shiver common story and if you were to take your average Canadian. Generally they're healthy people. They're living their lives eating wells sleeping well plenty of exercise and and then suddenly something happens. They get sick and they don't even necessarily associated with tick bite and especially in a place where you're not expecting to run into ticks like downtown Toronto. You might not think about it and as you get. sicker and sicker and sicker. Lime disease isn't even on the radar so it takes long time to figure out what it is and the problem with lyme disease is if you catch it early. It's very easy to treat. Take your antibiotics into the story. But if you don't catch catch it and it goes on for a long time like weeks or months or sometimes even years. It's really hard to treat people were saying and this is why I wanted to ask you about like how it presents. How the disease presents because people were saying that it looked like Justin had lapsed and that he was an addict and that he was really struggling with substance abuse? Right you and and I think that that's actually remarkably common and a lot of people find that obviously really hurtful and you can certainly understand and why if you've been

She realized they were gunshots when she saw other students running still carrying carrying a backpack laden with books. She ran across the street to a house. Where a person she did not know gave shelter to her and around ten other students? I just heard lots of kids crying. We were scared. Rodriguez said on a normal day.

At the Races With Nick Tammaro

"Churchill getting started would bind with they're the first really too big weekends they also course got the international later in the meet later in the fall and and that brings in some international shippers this woodbine mile just the mile either northern dancer the more you look at it. I thought was was was intriguing and there's plenty of other a lot of stars on the card including Holy Khaleda and pink Loyd. WHO's I I for a horse? That's one like twenty seven in a row. Nobody seems the talk about him or pay much attention to him. Bob Tillers streaking sprinter and here's a streaking sprinter victim Rio depends on where the sprint destination is. I think might Tapei at times but shop racing form a yes to the windows. Definitely Pink Floyd is is really sort of a marvel in terms of how he's performed well routinely I of course needed him to at least be third in this race last year in the contest and finished fifth so the pink floyd stop it will be nowhere near Wreck Stale Ontario and so his chances tomorrow we'll probably increase exponentially. He's in the early. They put the bold venture early on the card actually in fact when I went to the stakes together and put them up Derby Trail Oh. I didn't even look that that early on the card so I didn't even have to go back in fact I don't know if I did go back and put it up but there are a couple couple of very nice horses here including Carlin's honor the Jack Oxley Breezy York good old Yordan approaching half a million dollars for a chiefs would and Stewart Simon you know a lot of your a lot of your local players in the sprint scene but pink Cloyd is now twenty one twenty six and it really was late last year September October that he started to show some some frings signs of tiring and Kinda sputtered out at the end of the year could. Could he be beaten in here. I don't think so no it looks like he's he's back where he needs to be and I don't really know I guess other than Caroline's honor who's supposed to be particularly big threat to him in the spot so he he should get the job done. I mean it's always nice to see good. Horses do Well York than obviously was in much better form coming into this last year having run a good second pink Floyd Royd individual and and that was also during a period of time where pink floyd was having a really hard time getting out of the gate so he's a little ornery for a seven year old gelding and he had a little bit gate trouble really about four or five races in a row going into last year's bold venture he he's not he still not they really particularly the obedient or when it comes to getting out of the gate or being trained for it but he's definitely a little bit better spot with that right now so I think given that he's he's inform and should be sitting right off of the of the pace. If you worked in may be line to the front end. I think he should be okay before we talk about the Canadian the end the grade to which does start the cross country and will incorporate the pebbles and the nightcap at Belmont Nixon thoughts about last week at Belmont. We talked about this Jockey Club Derby and oaks and the Grand Prix. I talked to Andy on Tuesday. The Grand Prix was oddly contest than I thought but some some quick hits on opening the opening salvos at Belmont. I guess guess I'll try and keep it as charitable as possible. Given I took my shots at it last week but I think they played out largely. How we expected decide thought was a pretty impressive winner of the Jockey Club oaks overcoming? I think by all counsel was a pretty negative pace setup and winning is much the best running down Wonderman who I thought probably got a little bit more the run of the race and the American contingent as we expected in that race as well as the Jockey Club Derby were pretty much no shows and it could also be that the American continuing is pretty thin out by now. We'll talk about the pebbles and a little bit but the pebbles is going to be the ninth race for one hundred thousand dollars or more for three year olds fillies on turf going back to June sixth six and that's insane so the ranks of American horses that are ready to go a mile and three eighths early in September. We're really not very not very robust and and that proved out on the lady side and I thought Spanish mission I I actually thought he was totally out of position and thought that he was about to have a Jamie Spencer Special before he was able to overcome it and get the job done so a little bit. I know that the horse was capable of overcoming his writer. I I would imagine he he should be one of the better distant sources that we could potentially see over here next year given that he's going to be off now until the spring and there's just obviously connections that have problems shipping over the Grand Prix North American Jockey Club invitational brought to you by whatever most pretentious name of all time that was one of the most oddly run races I've ever seen first of all. I don't know how the hell everybody knew. Marconi was winning that race for fun and then to watch the riders of both realm and roaming union gather a hold of their horses so strongly almost as if they were waiting for Marconi to catch up and take the lead after he blew the break so that he could go one sixteen flat it was basically sort of the epitome of what we complain about left and right about American American dirt racing right now and you know in this day and age of sort of turf occasion of American racing where everybody points to turf races races are run like turf races. It's almost as if one horse makes the lead all the other guys say okay well. They're the pacesetter we're just GONNA go ahead and sit back and wait for them to come back to us and the majority of the time on the dirt that just doesn't happen even so shockingly Marconi was able to set a pedestrian pace and and went on with it and I I obviously would not have been a big fan of his at the price he went off often. We talked about how it looked like a bit more competitive race on paper the other todd pletcher trainee your to blame. I thought ran pretty well. He was able to stop the pace on the inside but you know I don't y horse like roaming union was in there if he wasn't GonNa GonNa contest the pace especially given that he's from connections like Michelle Navin who generally have a pretty decent idea how to win dirt racist so that was is a little bit of a head scratcher. you know look my personal opinion is that if there's any thought given to this turf triple. I really hope that same amount of money is committed to a dirt program and trying trying to incentivize horsemen to get there and run on dirt more frequently really try and build up the claiming ranks again because it's kind of embarrassing through the first three days of racing. I'm I'm sorry through the first three days of Racing Belmont there were seventy eight horses total entered to run on dirt and there are over seventy eight horses enter to run dirt in the first day at Churchill so I if the same number number of races and and that's that's not good. That's a big big problem that creates a big problem in the winter so that's my hope for it as it is. I guess we'll see probably a little bit better from Spanish mission in the Diese Lisa next year well we turn to Belmont today and into the weekend a couple of very good maiden races actually as part of that card and maybe we'll touch on them but let's let's look at the cross country pick five and it is comprised of of the three three of the stakes would bind the Canadian the mile and the northern dancer that you know you the top of your head. You wouldn't have thought it the three of them were as complex as actually I think they are and then the pebbles and the turf sprint claiming nightcap the eleventh at Belmont so let's start with the Canadian you know this is an interesting field the and really they'll competition. Idea should probably go off a pretty solid favorite. I don't really see how tactically you could make a real stand with her and she's a horseshoe. Obviously needs to lay back and make one run and you know those types generally at the mercy of the pace and this race does not look like it's going to have really any pace speak of so so she's going to have to overcome that now. I will say that you'll Rosario getting back on board to me feels like a very good thing. It does seem like she's just a little bit better horse when he's John Her but now the flip side of that is that we know Joel style. He's GonNa take her back and let her make one run so I mean they're they're going to. There's going to have to be some pace in here that you can't really foresee and I guess the hope is that Dixie moon and or starship do believe maybe show a little bit more speed than they have before. That's if you're back competition of ideas with any great fervor because obviously what this is shaping up as a situation where Holy Helena has a big tactical advantage on the other favorite and and she's been effective at Woodbine in the past. You look good winning the dance smartly last time Jimmy was giving a little bit of time since and I think she's a horse that that will really get the run of the race and and that's GonNa make her toffee. This could be a situation where on your your pick five. You're really leaning on those two pretty heavily and maybe you could give a little bit of a nod holy Helena on one one more additional ticket. I did want to try and make a case for to Riga and my hope is the Tyler Galileo. Maybe a little bit more aggressive with her than Johnny. Velazquez was was last time he finished just length and a half behind the competition of ideas did get into a little bit of trouble amazingly. She got into trouble in the three-horse rates which it happens of course and with a little bit cleaner run maybe second off the off the layoff off the ship in we can see some improvement grim oceans been a little the little laid back with her she she ran on July twentieth didn't work until August thirty first but might be one of those horses that can stay fit without doing that. I I'm always very very in tune and was looking at his horses in these kind of scenarios as they they generally overperform relative to their odds so I'm GonNa go ahead and include Theresa's well the and will include could starship jubilee more than likely those two has backups because I think they each offers some appeal at what should be better prices than the two chalks should note that ah Jimmy Jerkins after sending Holy Elena opt for the dance smartly basically is as left her there and oh my Gosh the stronach trainer but my Woodbine what is yes thank you Mike Doyle. Mike Doyle has been handling and Jimmy is on TV with seth deny after after precision is one and he told the story about Jimmy said he got the notification is it is stable mail all that Holy Helena had worked Labor Day weekend and so gets the notice he opens it up and Airy Jerry Sees Holy Elena six longs one eleven and three Jimmy said got on the phone to this is Mike what's going on up there and he said I really don't worry though or she did it easy. Did it easy the track was the polly was slick. It was cold or whatever yeah what eleven at three and you know what I did. I brought up with Jimmy that great story that is his father told about Bo purple and going out to Hawthorn for the Hawthorne Gold Cup on Tuesday the race as was Saturday and on Tuesday he gets a call from a Chicago sportswriter and said Jerkins. I wanted to ask you for comment about outvote purples work and said what about it. He says well he he he went a mile in one thirty. Two and three Korea broke the track record or mile. I think he went to violent at eight and broke the track record. What what forty seven forty six shades or something and and and Jerkin said you know? I'm sure he'll be fine and sure enough. He went out and won the Gold Cup but that was funny. One one eleven and three

Cryptocurrency investors locked out of $190m after exchange founder dies

"Investors in a Canadian crypto currency exchange. Eat a bit of a bind because the person with the password to accounts value to one hundred ninety million dollars in the US. He died in India in December. The problem is he's the only person that has access to the password. These accounts. It's Quadri gut squad. Riga Quadri get the name of the company. He died of complications of Crohn's disease in December nights, traveling in India to set up an offered on orphanage orphanage, I know how to speak anyway, apparently, he's the only person who has access to the bulk of the crypto currency funds, which means that one hundred fifteen thousand investors could be out there money. Well, that's interesting. Like, there's gotta be a way though, like where where does not well, where's the site that he needs to where does that live like the whoever owns that Citre? Why can't they just like cracking for for the supreme court says that this guy had the only password to the so-called cold-storage accounts a form of savings containing Bitcoin's deposited by one hundred fifteen thousand investors, he left no record of the password security experts consulted by the company have been unable to crack the accounts, according to the publication the filing seeks legal protection from investors while tries to rich. Retrieve the bitcoins. Crypto currency form of digital currency. Overseen by a decentralized network of computers around the world. They must be stored on servers and can be kept in hot wallets for media transactions or cold storage as part of a digital savings account to protect them from hackers. So this guy's got the only password so they can unlock them. Then I guess they just sit there one hundred and ninety million dollars one hundred fifteen thousand people like yo I want my mind, there's got to be a hacker somewhere. Like if you can get into here, you get a million of it. Yeah. How about that? So far. Password. One. Hilarious. Four three. You know, that that's probably the only guy in earth that takes accepted that option on your phone word makes it like super hard like, you know, one capital. A you know what I'm saying? You know, how you can do that? Sometimes we're like it'll automatically set the password, and it's all like, I don't know. He's the guy that did that. Go get his phone.

A New Law In Latvia Aims To Preserve National Language By Limiting Russian In Schools

"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from internet essentials from Comcast. Connecting more than six million low income people to low cost high speed internet at home. So students are ready for homework class graduation and more. Now, they're ready for anything this year. Lot is celebrating the one hundredth anniversary of its founding as an independent country, even though for half that time it was as an unwilling member of the Soviet Union now to strengthen its national identity. Lot government has decided to cut down on the use of the Russian language in schools, but that is causing an outcry from some Russian speaking residents. NPR's Lucian Kim reports from the Latvian capital Riga. In Riga's historic old town, you can hear a cacophony of languages as foreign tourists pack, the cobblestone streets. If you over here locals, there's likely to be speaking Russian as they are Latvian. That's one reason. Let us government has passed a law that starting next year will limit Russian has a language of instruction in the country, schools out constitution stays the state languages Latvian. Whereas at home, you can speak your mother tongue freely. Non Jackson whatsoever. Ricard's Kohl's is a lawmaker from the nationalist party that pushed for the law Latvia's, a tiny nation of less than two million people and many Latvians feel the need to protect themselves from cultural and political assimilation by their giant neighbour. Russia, basically, we are nation state. So we're founded on the basis of language tradition and culture, we Hainault independence in very troubled times. But about a quarter of Latvia's population. Don't share those traditions their ethnic Russians, many of whom moved here during Soviet times to find out what ordinary citizens think. I leave the quaint steeples of the old town and head for Riga's central station. Whose money these jump on a commuter train going to the edge of the city. Monta neighborhood was built during Soviet times row after row of concrete, apartment blocks. You're I run into Eric Garner's a driver who's out for a walk with his wife. He thinks the law is really about October's parliamentary election chew step only sokaia. Needs to use it when you're pure politics. If there weren't such bands like the language law. There would be a lot fewer problems in our society, Dr snicks ethnic Latvian, but says he feels more comfortable speaking Russian. He says language isn't an issue in daily life, Dr snicks laughs when I mentioned that opponents of the law are accused of being puppets of the Russian president. Dr Nick says he's never considered himself when of lady Amir, Putin's helpers, but Russia's annexation of Crimea for years ago is still on the minds of many Latvians putting justified his military intervention in Ukraine by claiming to defend the rights of Russian-speakers there. Elisabetta christova says a similar scenario could happen in Latvia. If our addition will increase ethnic tension, then online point it would be possible christova as an ethnic Russian activist who is suing the Latvian government over the language law to Latvian security services suspect, her of working for the Kremlin. She says she's acting on her own convictions. I hopefully, they'll find a good way in our state without violence and his out needs to us help to any foreign country, Latvia sovereignty is supported by its membership in NATO and the European Union Carlos shut door skips. The education minister says the new law is intended to defuse ethnic tension. If we are not. Learning together, we are not able normally to live together.
