Well, folks, tomorrow's scumbag regulator, Gary Gensler, will be testifying before the House Financial Services Committee at 10 a .m. Eastern. So I definitely will be watching that. I'm hoping that he gets grilled, that he comes down on this clown because he has not been abiding by the law. He has made the SEC political. And there's many different topics that I hope the members of the financial committee go after him on. First, of course, the loss to Ripple in the XRP lawsuit, right where XRP was declared intrinsically not a security. So that is a total contrast to what Gary has been saying, that the rules are clear in 1933 -34 how we test for stocks and bonds. But it's like you buffoon digital assets exist on decentralized blockchains distributed globally. This is not a U .S. market. This thing is global and it's decentralized. So we need updated rules for this. And I'm not saying that every crypto asset is not a security. There are some that are. But how do we differentiate? That's the need for the updated rules. So the other aspect is Gary and the SEC took a big loss in the grayscale lawsuit. And the three judges went against the SEC and they said the denial of the grayscale Bitcoin's bond ETF was arbitrary and capricious. Gary's taking big losses in court here. Right. And obviously, Gary, going after the Coinbase folks is really bad, given that they greenlighted Coinbase to go public. The other aspect is Promethean, because since Gary was before this committee, a lot of stuff came out of a Promethean that they had they got the license, but they weren't even selling crypto and that this guy is clearly a plant by Gary Gensler and Elizabeth Warren. So I'm hoping they bring the heat on this buffoon and expose him. Last time they did a great job, but they got to keep the pressure on and expose him. Now, ahead of the hearing, Gary released his testimony. But it's the same old bullshit. Right. There's nothing new here. I don't even want to read anything. He just brings up the securities laws of 1933 and so on and so forth. Now, what also happened was a bunch of letters were sent to Gary Gensler and some other folks as well. So the first is a bipartisan letter was sent to Gary Gensler by GOP members and Democrats. So this is really great that it's bipartisan and they're urging the SEC to approve a Bitcoin spot ETF. The GOP members included Tom Emmer and Representative Mike Flood. The Democrats included Ritchie Torres and Representative Wiley Nickel. So this is really good. You know, they highlighted the grayscale lawsuit and how the court of appeals sided with grayscale. So I'm hoping that these folks bring the heat on Gary tomorrow. In addition, there was a letter sent to Gary Gensler and FINRA from Congressman Blaine stating his concern over the SEC's insufficient scrutiny of registered broker dealers with ties to the Chinese Communist Party, such as Prometheum, Webull and Moomoo app. Honestly, never heard of Moomoo app, but certainly Prometheum. We know, guys, that is a shady business and we will see what happens tomorrow. So they got to bring the heat and they got to keep putting the pressure. We have to use social media to our advantage. Folks, I want you all to be tweeting, sending emails to your representatives, making phone calls. We got to use the hashtag fire Gary Gensler. That stuff matters because I've said many times, optics play a big part in politics. I know we're not there in the capital, you know, forcing these folks to sign the bill or to fire Gary Gensler, but we can make our voices heard and we can amplify the facts and the truth and expose Gary Gensler for the corrupt scumbag that he is. And here, folks, the SEC has delayed the ARK Invest slash 21 shares Bitcoin spot ETF filing. They also delayed the global ex ETF application, which was due October 7th. So, you know, James Seyford is essentially saying, you know, will this mean that BlackRock, Bitwise, VanEck, all these folks are going to be delayed, too? You know, it wouldn't surprise me, Gary, I don't know what he's up to, but I hope the members call tomorrow him out on this. What are you doing? The courts clearly are saying you're not doing the right thing and they're siding with the crypto industry. So we once again, guys, are dealing with a corrupt scumbag regulator. He's a puppet on strings doing the bidding of his tradfi buddies and trying to slow this industry down, trying to kill crypto startups. So let's see what happens tomorrow. Now, speaking of Gary Gensler's tradfi puppet masters, Chase UK, yes, JP Morgan, Chase in the UK to block crypto payments, citing fraud and scams. Unbelievable, unbelievable, folks. And I'm going to give you the context of this. But let me give you the details of what they're trying to block. Banking giant Chase is banning crypto linked payments via debit card or by outgoing bank transfer for UK clients starting October 16th, according to an email to customers. If we think you're making a payment related to crypto assets will decline it, the email said, adding that the customers are free to use a different bank or provider to invest in crypto. However, finding a crypto friendly bank in the country may not be the easiest thing as UK credit institutions have a history of blocking or limited limiting customer access to crypto. The local financial watchdog, the Financial Conduct Authority, recently said it had facilitated discussions between banks and crypto firms because lenders have shown a reluctance to offer services to that industry. The fact that JP Morgan Chase is doing this is despicable. Why? Just today, just today, folks, JP Morgan agrees to pay seventy five million dollars settlement over ties to who? Jeffrey Epstein. Do I even need to say anything else about that name? Right, folks? These banks themselves are participating in a whole bunch of criminal scumbag activity, right? We've seen over the years. How many fines has JP Morgan gotten here? Kyle Schnapps, he highlighted this. He said JP Morgan Chase has paid nearly 40 billion dollars in fines for financial fraud and predatory practices since 2000.

I've chosen our episode from November of 2019 on cockney rhyming slang. This is one of those silly episodes That's also packed with a lot of interesting information and I remember Chuck and I having fun making it So I hope you'll enjoy listening to it, too enjoy Welcome to stuff you should know production of I heart radio And welcome to the podcast I'm Josh Clark and there's Charles W. Chuck Bryant right there. There's Jerry Roland right there So that makes this stuff. You should know right Can't top that I was trying to think a way to say welcome to the podcast in cockney rhyming slang Can you make an attempt my I'm my brain is so broken right now. I can't even try. Okay, good good Well, welcome. It's a good good time to record a show You're gonna do some cockney in here, right? We want to offend as many Londoners as we can I don't know just just channel a little Dick Van Dyke. Oh You know Yeah, the American Doing a bad cockney accent. Well, I did recently rewatch the limey Yes Casey's for benefit. Yeah, the great great movie from Steven Soderbergh. Never seen it. It's awesome. Is it really? Yeah, I mean, I know it's like a classic and everybody loves it. But I mean, it's really that good Yeah, because a lot of people liked I don't know the hangover. I Like the hangover. Well, how would you how would you like the limey and the hangover same level? Yeah, they're the same movie almost. All right, it's weird. Well, then I've seen the hangover so I don't need to see the limey Lemmy's great and Terence stamp is Awesome, and it then uses some cockney rhyming slang and one great scene My big exposure to cockney rhyming slang is lock stock in two smoking barrels Snatch. Yeah, which I think are both directed by Guy Ritchie, right? Wasn't lock stock like his first attempt and snatch was the one that like Got him married to Madonna you a fan of his yeah, I mean as much as I Like his movies, I don't like him personally necessarily cuz he like hunts bore like a jackass does it like yeah No drunk with his friends in the most like disrespectful way of murdering a pig. I admit his movies But yeah, I do like his movie sounds like he's a creep, too I'm not gonna go on record saying that but Yeah, those movies are okay and then I guess what's his name Don Cheadle a little bit in Oceans 11 sure he did a little bit of that right and I mean like It's code to Americans. It's oh, there's like a criminal a British criminal, right? That's all that means these days Yeah, I think so in movies. It's definitely Like all of those are criminal right criminal people in the movies They're like, you know kind of slick cool criminals that wear leather coats and stuff like that Not dumb criminals that wear like football jerseys or anything like that. They're like, you know smooth criminals That's I think what I was looking for. Yeah, but This this idea of associating it with cockney is not necessarily associating it with criminals. It's more associated with like Lower class working class less educated definitely not the aristocracy over in Britain yeah, or the upper class sure and that by by speaking with a cockney accent or More to the point using cockney rhyming slang you could really differentiate yourself To as a point of pride, right? Like you were speaking like your group your in -group which was at the time cockney, right? But the big surprise to all this is it's really possible and even probable that it wasn't the cockney that came up with this Rhyming slang that it was somebody else altogether. Maybe who knows should we say what it is? No Not for the rest of the podcast cockney rhyming slang Wasn't even Very clearly defined in this piece. Okay, did you think it was? It's in there. Okay, you got to just kind of separate the wheat from the chaff So it is a two -word phrase and is a slang phrase Consisting of two words so far so good where the last word of that phrase rhymes with the original word and It can be and I think the best way to do this is just to throw out a few no. No keep describing Well, the two -word phrase it can be it can be a lot of things it can be a person's name It can be just something random can be a place could be a place. It could be a lot of things it can be anything Yeah, sure. I guess it can be But shall we illustrate it through? Well, there's a second part to it. Okay, the second part and this is very important the Two -word phrase that you're using to that where the second one rhymes with the word you're actually saying Yeah, the original word the original word. Thank you Usually has nothing to do with it. There's no metaphor. There's no connection. There's no Nothing, there's no there's no context to it It's supposed to just be random or in most cases. It is just random words right one of which rhymes with the word you're replacing and To further complicate things sure In a lot of cases and no one knows why sometimes this happens and sometimes it doesn't a lot of times that one of the words Of the two -word phrase is dropped. Yeah, and then you're just left with the one word Which doesn't even rhyme with the original word anymore, right? That's I mean, that's probably the best description of cockney rhyming slang anyone's ever given So I think we should illustrate it with a couple of examples. I pulled some from From something called the internet Here here's one the the tip and tete That's how long it took me to come up with that Tip and tete for internet, but in ten years, it'll just be called the tip I'm gonna log on to the tip governor So let's say your word was and this was in oceans 11 specifically trouble is the word that you're trying to say Cockney rhyming slang for trouble is Barney rubble awesome And so you would say you're making a bit of the bonnie rubble again, right when somebody that was kind of Who was that? Making a bit of bonnie rubble not the see I already did it wrong No, but I think you that's not like a real person to an American for sure. Oh, yeah Um, I can't I can't I'll shout it out. Later. Oh, man. I finally did a good one No, but it wasn't a cockney person, okay for Another example Queen They would use the term baked bean Look who's on TV. It's the baked bean And that's the Queen. I like that one or in the case of one that's been dropped What is Ed use here bees and honey? That one is not dropped for money. Okay, but which one was apples and pears right? Right, so you would say I'm gonna go up the apple and stairs Apples and pears. Oh, man Let me retake this everybody You would say I'm going to go up the apples and pears to go get my wallet to pay for this pizza Or something to that effect. Okay, but then over time people drop the pears And so now the word for stairs in cockney rhyming slang is just apples Which if you're just standing there on the outside like a normal American bloke sure, which by the way means person You have no idea why this person just called stairs apples You got what they were saying because the context is there you're going up the apples to get your wallet to pay for the pizza But why would you just say that did you did you hit your head? Is there something wrong with you? What's the problem? Why would you just call that apples? Yeah, that's why it's so confounding But the great thing about cockney rhyming slang and in particular the great thing about researching cockney rhyming slang is you learn How you get from apples to stairs and then it makes sense sometimes Yeah, that's true. It's not always. Yeah, sometimes there's It's not documented which ed points out is one of the problems sometimes you can draw the line the through line But because it's not documented and sometimes these things take years and years to morph into its final version right unless you unless you're you know on the What would you call street on the dole? No on the streets, then I wouldn't know but I don't know what streets is you can't just make stuff up like there's real words I'm the drums and beats So you're on the drums right, but they probably have a word for streets like that's the whole point You can't just make anything up, but the you could if it hasn't been taken yet sure Also, that's the other thing about cockney rhyming slang is it evolves right so old celebrities that that no one even knows about anymore Fall away to new celebrities whose name also rhyme with you know whatever word you're saying right? I thought you meant old celebrities who maybe used to talk this way like Michael Caine no He's never said any rhyming slang in his life. No of course you got to see the movie Alfie Maybe that's who it was it might have been Michael Caine. I'll take that Michael Caine. I think it was as a matter of fact Thank you, I'm glad you did it. Noel always says a good joke is to say Michael Caine in the correct accent say the words my cocaine And it sounds like Michael Caine saying it then it sounds like that the correct accent for Michael Caine all right say it my cocaine Well you just blew that one out of the water You Gotta set me up in the future Okay, well there's I've got it two ways now, man, okay, here's the thing my cocaine That's my cocaine That's pretty good Michael Caine. It is good. You're right. No. You just got to say it the right way and not like a robot Josh So here's that one of the things is sort of confounding if you want to look up a like a glossary and Say well, here's what I'm gonna. Do I'm gonna learn cockney rhyming slang so for my trip to England I'm really you know. I'm really in with everybody First of all bad idea yeah second of all it's it can be very localized Mm -hmm and the accents are all different Yeah, so even people in London sure who both who all use well people in London Do but the people who use cockney rhyming slang in London yeah might not even agree on what word is means What I'm just picturing all the people walking around England laughing their arses off. I can't wait to get to that one As we stumble through this um yeah, it had a really good Example of why there's no codification of the cockney rhyming slang He said that when people are creating a language especially informal ones like slang They don't write it all down quote dear diary referred to my house as a cat and mouse today because it rhymed We all had a good laugh might try. Just calling it cat tomorrow and see how it goes It is it sounds funny, but that's that's how it works stumbling across the diaries And here's the other thing too is there are cases where there is a little bit of a reflection of the original word and the example that it gives here is twist Yeah, like to call a woman a twist mm -hmm Which I don't know if that's derogatory or not or just some weird slang that no one uses anymore I don't think so although I don't know so yeah these are also the people who use the C word like it's nothing Man I can't wait to go back there Which we're gonna do soonish right? I'd love to do in 2020. Maybe yeah, all right So twist came from twist and twirl which meant girl which is They were talking about like dancing with a girl twisting and twirling in a nightclub Let's say so there is some connection in that one. Yeah, so girl and ended up becoming twist So that sort of makes sense there's another one called on your Todd After a guy named Todd Sloan and it means on your own Right and the thing is is like on your Todd it makes sense Sloan rhymes with own It doesn't have to have any connection, but that one actually does yeah Cuz Todd Sloan was a famous jockey in the 19th century like horse jockey. Yes, okay? What other kind is there disc jockeys? Oh, yeah, sure So his book his memoir was called Todd Sloan by himself Which is weird to refer to yourself in third person for your memoir Hmm, but there was a line in it that apparently East End East Enders in London like really picked up I was left alone by those. I never ceased to grieve for It's still like the idea of being alone or on your own Became synonymous with Todd Sloan his name just happened to rhyme with that So it's one of those rare ones where there is a connection to it and also rare Chuck in that This is a 19th century horse jockey and still today on your Todd is recognized as on your own Whereas a lot of people probably have no idea exactly who he is and when that happens That frequently that person gets moved out for potentially another celebrity or another word That's a little more understandable or recognized another new jockey two people today, right? Yeah exactly which can you name one? Nope? Nope Alright, maybe we should take a break and we'll talk about some of the other some other examples after this message In a world where modern technology is rapidly reshaping our day -to -day lives the new podcast Technically speaking an Intel podcast uncovers the remarkable ways tech is improving our livelihood across the globe brought to you by Ruby Studios from I heart media in partnership with Intel technically speaking is your passport to the forefront of AI's marvels in modern technology each episode will Take you on a riveting journey as you discover the awe -inspiring innovations of our modern world from game -changing innovations Revolutionizing early cancer detection to AI software that detects pests on crops that can be detrimental to seasonal yields tune in for Conversations that are shaping tomorrow today.
A highlight from Amadeus
"And welcome back to cinema vino. It's good to have you guys here with us. Ahoy, bitches. Yo, yo, yo, yo, yo. Got Travis Budd. One ones and twos. Sean Jordan. Threes and fours. Then Taylor Owens. Yo. And I'm playing nothing but the kick drum the whole night. Seven Nation whole time. Exactly. I'm Meg White the whole night. She rocked that kick drum. She did. She was four on the floor. One of the first songs I ever learned on drums. Yeah. Super easy. It's very straightforward. That and smoke on the water on bass. Just yeah, it's easy. Bam, bam, bam, bam, bam, bam, bam. Exactly. Summer chaos for us continues this week with my pick Amadeus. And I'm not exactly even sure why I picked this. I think it's something I hadn't seen in a while. Yeah, I think we had talked about wanting to do Amadeus. Yeah. And I think a clip of it probably popped up on YouTube because we talked about it. I was like, man, I don't really want to go back and watch that. It's been a long time. Yeah, I think since I was a kid. So it was interesting now. And then now watching the director's cut. So Travis, did you watch the director's cut? Yeah, I yeah, that was the first thing I saw. I got time. I think I watched the director's cut. Yeah. Not positive. And you did not. I did not. Yeah. I'd be curious to see you right here is talking about it. See what the differences are. Yeah. It was a scene. I was like, what the hell? Yeah. I think I watched it like three or four weeks ago at this point. Yeah. It's been a while. Yeah. It's been a minute. Wow. Bring it back up speed. So with this one, it was actually luck. So I did all regions for this wheel that we the random wheel picker and it came up for the Italian one. So that kind of fits the movie a little bit with Salieri. And so for this one, we have a Rosso de Multipulciano, a Prunello, which is fun to say. Yeah. Prunello is just a Sangiovese. It's another fancy way of saying Sangiovese. I think Sangiovese is a fancy way of saying Sangiovese. Exactly. So this comes from Multipulciano, which is a small town in the Tuscany region of central Italy. Sangiovese from this region get age one to two years in oak barrels or three if they are a reservo. Sangiovese is a classic example of what's called old world wine. So as the name implies, these wines exhibit, they're acidic, they're tannic, they're kind of bold, full bodied. This one has a lot of depth and complexity to it. You could do this with big, heavy Italian dishes, pizza, stuff like pot roast, just big meals in general. I mean, I think I get a lot of fruit on this one, kind of dark like current flavors. It's earthy. It's a little bit like oaky flavored. I mean, it's just a big, full bodied red wine. This is a classic, like heavy European wine. But yeah, I think you could do this with pizzas. I'm told you can do this with lamb. I don't eat a lot of lamb. I don't eat any lamb just because I was raised on the farm with lambs, so I can't eat it. But people have said that this is a good lamb pair. You can see that. But yeah, this is about a $25 bottle of wine. This is the Boscarelli Rosso di Multipulciano, just the region. So basically, this is like a red from Multipulciano. Sangiovese is one of the grapes you'll find in Chianti. So it's one of the components of Chianti, which is also in this region of Italy. So there you go. It's good, tasty. Exactly. A little bit about this movie, a little background. So this was released September 19th, 1984, coming up on 39 years ago. Grossing $90 million against an $18 million budget, nominated for 11 Oscars and won eight, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor. F. Maria Abraham, who won Best Actor. He was competing against Tom Hulce, who was, it's the last time in recent memory that both two actors from the same movie were nominated for Best Actor together. Last time I heard Tom Hulce's name. Or my favorite, Pinto. Yes. Yeah. Only thing I can think of that he turned up in after this was Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Disney. He was the Hunchback. He's typecast. Exactly. So this was written by Peter Schaffer, who adapts his own stage play. He would also win the Academy Award. Mark Hamill was in the front running to play Mozart in this movie. I actually read that. But was not cast because the director felt he would be too recognizable as Luke Skywalker and he would be a distraction. Kenneth Branagh was also in the running for, but the director preferred American actors for the lead roles. He wanted to keep it for an American cast. They were like, you know what this German really needs? An American. Yes. Good, solid Midwestern accents. Let me do this some good. But yeah, this is a, it's a quasi biopic. It has the feel of a biopic, but it is not historically accurate. This is a fictional fictionalized version of Mozart's life. Okay. Basically Mozart's death was so shrouded in mystery that basically people like don't know what happened to him. And so this is like the, the play kind of imagines what might have happened. So it creates a rivalry between Mozart and Salieri. I mean, this is my head cannon though. Yes. This is what happened. Yes. Well, this is the only reason what people know Salieri's name and they, and when you say Salieri, they're like, oh, it's an archenemy or you're jealous. It's now, yeah, it's a trope of like the jealous, treacherous, mediocre person who's jealous of what he can't have. And so, and so basically, you know, Mozart died at 36. He's very young and no, they didn't have a good understanding of medicine. Obviously nobody really knows what happened to him. It's been everything from like some kind of mystery to poisoning like, you know, some kind of virus that, you know, they didn't ever identify it. It just kind of happened quickly and nobody knows. He just kind of ended up dead. That's what we now know is the day the music died. Yeah. That's before even Ritchie Valens was born. Who? Exactly. So basically this movie imagines that Salieri was the jealous, mediocre, you know, very ambitious, but underachieving composer who was, you know, basically killed Mozart by having him compose the Requiem, which he ended up never finishing. So it's almost like an unrequited love for Salieri. Yeah. You know, because he's so passionate about music and he's like, this gripped me from the day that I heard music. It's all I ever wanted to do, but I'm so bad at it. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, he's almost like an Ed Wood. So mid. Yes. Yeah. He's not terrible, but he's passionate and it's like, he loves Mozart's composing. He's just so insanely jealous of it. He could only become the court composer for a court where the King had terrible taste. Yeah. And it's like, to me, it's that thing about how you can only rise as far your ceiling is how far your talent can take you. It's like, you can work hard, but that will only take you to a certain point. It's like Mozart, which is blessed by almost like supernatural talent that came to music. I mean, he was a prodigy. He had just a natural ear, but that was like one, you know, one of the most talented musicians who ever lived. And it's like, you know, he was given, you know, automatically what Salieri prayed for and would never even got close to it. It's like Good Will Hunting. Yeah. Yeah. Oh yeah. You know, anybody else think that Salieri, like after watching it and I watched the director's cut, I'm like, Salieri should have been like a fucking Baker. Cause he's always like offering people food and they're like, Oh my God, what's this? It's cream cheese, cream cheese with spun sugar. And this, once you have these nipples of Venus, you know how they make it, they do this and this and this fucking cheesecake cheesecake. It was like, dude, just pivot. Just be a fucking Baker. Yeah. The Baker. I mean, you got that. He was definitely in the wrong trade. Yeah. You know? Well, not that he sucked at it. He just wasn't as baller. Nipples of Venus would be a great band. Yes. And it's like, he punished himself with chastity and all these other things. I mean, it's like he put himself through punishment to achieve his goal because he just immediately attributed all his success to God. And he was like, this is what you want. You want me to be celibate? I'll do it for you, buddy. And then renounced God. But once he truly saw like Mozart's was the marriage of Figaro, I think is where he chucked his cross into the fire. Now, see, that was cooler when Gary Oldman did it and then became a vampire. Yeah. Salieri does the same thing. He should get some vampire powers. Yeah. Can you imagine like the devil comes and it's just like Salieri. I will make you a great composer. That would have been a great movie. Yeah. That would be a great alternative fiction for this is like the devil comes along and Charlie Daniels style makes a deal with Salieri and says, you know, you can, you can have it all, but played by Nick Cage. Salieri gets to fuck all he wants, you know, would have been a different film. Yeah. Yeah. Could have all the nipples of Venus. Vamp dick. Yeah.
"ritchie" Discussed on Unchained
"Arkham Intel Exchange Awards First Bounty Arkham Intel Exchange, the recently -launched platform, which has drawn criticism for its, quote, Docs to Earn program, awarded its first bounty to two blockchain sleuths who identified wallets connected to Terraform Labs and its founder, DoKwan. The bounty, worth around $5 ,000, was paid out in nearly 9 ,500 ARKM tokens to an anonymous user and a pseudonymous Twitter user known as ergobtc. The bounty was awarded for information that contradicts Terra's public statement of holding only one Luna Foundation Guard wallet. Ergobtc's research suggests that there may be more wallets associated with Terra and Kwan. The information obtained through the bounty will be released to the public 90 days after approval, shedding more light on the operations of Terraform Labs. DOJ Granted Extension in Myshinsky Case This week, the U .S. Department of Justice was granted an extension by Judge John Kultl to produce evidence in its case against Alex Myshinsky, the former CEO of crypto lender Celsius. DOJ now has until October 3 to present initial information and evidence against Myshinsky, who was arrested on July 13 on charges of securities fraud, commodities fraud, wire fraud, and conspiracy to manipulate the price of CEL, Celsius's token. The DOJ attorneys are set to process a wealth of documents, including Celsius's corporate records and communications, which include more than 1 ,000 videos of Myshinsky's hour -long ask -me -anything sessions. Myshinsky, who was pleaded not guilty to all charges, has been released on bail, secured by a $40 million bond. Under the terms of his bail agreement, Myshinsky will be restricted from traveling and will not be able to open any new bank or crypto accounts. Quantstamp Settles with SEC Over $28 Million ICO This week, blockchain security firm Quantstamp agreed to settle charges brought by the U .S. Securities and Exchange Commission over its unregistered initial coin offering that raised $28 million in 2017. The SEC's order stated that Quantstamp led investors to expect that the value of their QSP tokens would increase with the success of the firm, a violation of federal securities laws. Quantstamp, without admitting or denying the SEC's findings, agreed to a cease and desist order and to pay a total settlement amount of approximately $3 .4 million. Crypto Hack Roundup AlphaPo, a crypto payments processor, suffered a significant loss estimated at $60 million. The stolen assets were identified on both the Tron and Bitcoin networks. The on -chain patterns associated with this breach align closely with operations previously linked to Lazarus, a North Korean hacking group. Additional hacks occurred on Conic Finance and EraLend, the largest lending protocol on Ethereum Layer 2 protocol ZKSync. In a daring move, Urine Finance, a decentralized platform that uses automated smart contracts to help investors maximize their yield, invited the crypto community to try and steal the funds inside its V3 vault. Elon Musk is serious about rebranding Twitter. I mean, X. Let's hear Ginny Hogan weigh in on Elon's latest stunt. An extremely manly move, Elon Musk has rebranded Twitter as X. To demonstrate he was serious about the change, he tweeted out this, which I have to imagine is a reference to Deus Ex Machina, something every Twitter investor has been praying for. Elon also claimed that they're cutting Twitter's bird logo from the buildings with blowtorches. This is fair. Birds are way too effeminate. I mean, some of them are literally girls. Allegedly, this move is because Elon wants to declare that Twitter is not the same social network he bought a year ago. Honestly, I got that already from the fact that images no longer load in my feed. Okay, so there is an obscure altcoin, the X coin, that is up 1000 % after the rebrand. Yeah, it's gone from $0 .00002 to $0 .00025. That's like when you think you only have a penny and then you find a dime. So X is way up and Jack Dorsey's very first NFT tweet is worth under $2 ,000. What can you even buy with $2 ,000, like half of all Twitter shares? Thanks so much for joining us today.

Propel your project and community forward by visiting arbitrum .io today. Back to my conversation with Representative Torres. You know, earlier you mentioned that you disputed the notion that crypto was a partisan issue, but I did wonder if you thought that this divide had emerged more after the collapse of FTX, because from my perception as a journalist covering this space, I would have said that it didn't seem like strongly partisan. And then after FTX, to me, it changed. I wondered what you thought of that. I agree in part. I feel like even before FTX, Democrats were more skeptical about crypto than Republicans, or there were more skeptics in the Democratic Party than in the Republican Party. But the skepticism took on a new intensity after FTX. But again, the FTX effect could fade over time. To me, the main issue is not the reaction to... And I would argue that FTX strengthens the argument for a regulatory framework, rather than maintaining a status quo that led to FTX in the first place. But the main stumbling block here are actually the regulators. Like, I'm convinced were it not for Gary Gensler, we would have had a much broader bipartisan market structure bill. Were it not for the Federal Reserve, we would have a much broader bipartisan stablecoin bill. The regulators have been intent on sabotaging bipartisan compromise and cooperation around crypto, and it's been immensely frustrating to see firsthand. You've been very direct about your criticism of Chair Gensler, and as I mentioned earlier, called for an investigation into the SEC and him. And you said, quote, The SEC is acting like an overzealous traffic cop, arbitrarily ticketing drivers while keeping the speed limit a secret. So I just wondered, you know, when you call for this kind of investigation, what are you expecting to find? Like, what do you think his motivation would be or the agency's motivation would be to, you know, basically do something nefarious or to not do their jobs properly? Not clear that I would characterize it as nefarious, but I do view regulation by enforcement as an abuse of power. And the SEC has been rightly compared to a traffic agent that is ticketing people for speeding without telling them the speeding limit. Mr. Gensler has been sending Wells notices and taking arbitrary enforcement actions without issuing a single rule that clearly delineates the application of securities law. Two digital assets. He has not issued a single rule. He has not issued a single piece of written guidance. And we've seen mixed messaging not only between the CFTC and the SEC, but from within the SEC itself. The CFTC tells us that Ether is a commodity. The SEC has said otherwise, contradicting the CFTC. And then Mr. Gensler himself has an ever -evolving position on the status of Ether. First he said, no, it is a commodity. Then he said, yes, it is a security. Then he said, maybe so. You know, the SEC is like an etch -a -sketch, constantly changing. And the law should be different from an etch -a -sketch. Law, by definition, should have stability and continuity and predictability, which is lacking with respect to the SEC. And so I view regulation by enforcement as an abuse of power. And that's why the Ripple decision was so consequential, because it represents a rejection of regulation by enforcement. Mr. Gensler indiscriminately declares that all digital assets are securities, which is the basis for his practice of regulation by enforcement. And Judge Torres said no. The Ripple case establishes what I call the Torres doctrine, which holds that digital assets are not securities in themselves, but can be sold as part of investment contracts, which do qualify as securities under the Howey test. So there's a difference between a security and an asset offered in the manner of a security offer. And if you examine the Supreme Court case that established the Howey test, the court never said that the orange grove was a security. It said that it was offered in the manner of a security offering. And so the decision is significant because it will protect crypto from entrepreneurs arbitrary enforcement action. And it prevents Mr. Gensler from prejudging all digital assets to be securities and engaging in regulation by enforcement on the basis of a prejudgment that all digital assets are securities. And one thing I just wanted to tease out there was when you were talking about the XRP ruling, you basically said that Judge Torres, no relation to you, Judge Annalisa Torres, that she said that XRP and digital assets by extension are not inherently securities or some phrasing like that. I think the crypto market structure bill would kind of make the SEC the initial default regulator. And then when, yeah, the assets are sufficiently decentralized, then they would be overseen by the CFTC. So can you just talk a little bit about your views on what crypto assets are inherently? No, I mean, I agree with the analysis that Judge Torres laid out that the digital assets, crypto assets are not securities in themselves, but can be sold as part of investment contracts, which do qualify as securities. So in order for a digital asset to qualify as a security, it is not enough to state that all digital assets are securities. You have to show that there is an investment contract, right? You have to show that there's an investment of money in a common enterprise with an expectation of profit to be derived from the efforts of others. You have to meet all those criteria of the Howey test as delineated by the Supreme Court. Now, to your question about the market structure bill, the market structure bill, and again, this really reinforces the paradox that Republicans are strangely in favor of regulation, but the market structure bill actually provides much broader protection than the status quo as interpreted in the Ripple case. The challenge of the Ripple case is it exposes the limits of securities law, which protects institutional investors but fails to protect retail customers. And so the market structure bill is going to play a role in filling the gap in investor protection when it comes to everyday Americans who are buying and selling digital assets on exchanges. I wanted to also ask you just one thing that's a little bit related to your call for the investigation into SEC chair Gensler, which was you also wanted to investigate Promethium and called it a Potemkin platform. And again, there is that notion of it being kind of put up as a display or something. And I wondered what your reasons were for calling the investigation or what your thought is about what is going on there. It seems to me that both the timing of the registration of Promethium and the decision to register was politically motivated. I mean, here you have a trading platform that does not trade any assets, not Bitcoin, not Ether. It exists on paper rather

"I have colleagues who believe that securities law as is, is sufficient to regulate digital assets. But a judge in the Southern District of New York, Judge Torres, held that securities law protects institutional investors in an initial point offering, but fails to protect retail customers on an exchange. And so we have a status quo in which institutional investors are protected, but retail customers are left exposed. And the choice before the Financial Services Committee, the choice before Democrats is, do we maintain that status quo or do we change it in order to protect retail customers? And I prefer change. And, you know, the crypto debate has been so unusual because typically in Washington, D .C., Republicans are in favor of deregulation and Democrats are in favor of regulation. In the crypto context, it's the opposite. Republicans are more in favor of regulation, whereas I have colleagues on my side who are in favor of maintaining a dangerously deregulated status quo, which is a position that runs contrary to the normal impulses and intuitions of Democrats, the regulatory impulses of Democrats. Crypto creates odd bedfellows and it creates paradoxes. So there's one more paradox. Typically, Europe is far less efficient at regulating technology than the United States. The opposite is true when it comes to crypto. Europe has been more reasonable on crypto than the U .S. has been. So for whatever reason, politically, crypto has brought out the worst in both Congress and the regulatory state. So, I mean, these are things I've heard time and again on my show. And there's so much more to unpack in that realm, which we will do in a moment. But first, a quick word from the sponsors who make this show possible.

John Zmirak Unpacks Guy Ritchie's Brilliant Movie "The Covenant"
"I'm talking to John's murak hey John, how are you? I'm fine, and I've seen some wonderful movies lately. Now, one movie that I've got a column coming out today at the stream that you haven't heard about is called the covenant. Guy Ritchie's latest movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal and an absolutely amazing Iraqi actor who really steals the show and I'm looking up his name. Wait a minute. Is it Burgess Meredith? No. Mr. T now, his name is darlene, Dar Salim. He lives in Denmark, but he's from Iraq, and he plays an Afghan translator who worked with the Americans and is targeted by the Taliban with his wife and child and has to go into hiding. He was promised a Visa by the U.S. government for his dangerous work, helping American soldiers, and the government doesn't come through. Just wait a minute. A good movie called the covenant made by the Guy Ritchie, who was once married to Madonna. Yeah, I'm telling you, he has made a number of very good movies. I think he's really grown as an artist. Oh, there's no question that if you follow this that he's clearly smart conservative, whatever or something is happening to him. But Madonna will do that to you. The movie, the covenant, it shows really powerfully in a really well made movie, the betrayal of the Afghan people and our allies there by the Biden administration, which cut and run left $90 billion worth of military equipment for the Taliban, giving them the fourth largest military budget on earth. Bigger than Russia's bigger than France is bigger than Germany's.
Wahoo! ‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie’ is No. 1 for third week
"The Super Mario Brothers movie continues its domination at the box office in its third weekend of release. I'm marching a letter with the latest. The Super Mario Brothers movie earned another $58.2 million in ticket sales this weekend, according to industry estimates, it is coming close to hitting the $1 billion mark worldwide. It would be only the fourth movie since the pandemic that hit that milestone after Spider-Man: No Way Home, Top Gun: Maverick and Avatar the way of water. Number two this week is the debut of evil dead rise, Guy Ritchie's the covenant debuts in third place, John Wick chapter four is number four and error is number 5.
Sonny Bunch Discusses Guy Ritchie's "Operation Fortune"
"You got to go to the movies. And the good news is John Wick is back. The bad news is operation fortune has not been much noticed by anyone. Sonny munch is here, the official movie critic of the Hugh Hewitt show. Airline miles rolling downhill towards him faster than boulders in an avalanche. Sunny, I want to talk to you about operation fortune and Guy Ritchie before we go to John Wick. Why didn't no one know that movie was out? It was very entertaining. Well, you know, that movie has had an interesting and kind of cursed release. It was supposed to come out, it was supposed to come out last year. It was supposed to come out more than more than 12 months ago. And it ended up getting kind of caught in the Russia Ukraine news cycle because originally the villain in that movie was a series of Ukrainian gangsters. Oh my gosh. No kidding. Yeah, so it got kind of caught up in that news cycle. The final version, they edited out the Ukrainian gangsters. They changed the villains around a little bit, I think. I don't know if they reshot any of the scenes or if it was just a little bit of sniffing here and there. I mean, I for one really enjoyed operation fortune. Even the fetching misses Hewitt, who generally doesn't, she won't go see John Wick, but because Hugh Grant was it using the Michael Caine access. She wanted to go see it. Yeah, so this is the second movie, I think. That Hugh Grant has done with Guy Ritchie, the first was the gentleman, which came out. A couple of years back. And I feel like Guy Ritchie is kind of unlocked something a little bit different within him. He's not. He's funny and bad. Yeah, no, it's interesting what he's doing. Anyway, I like to operation fortune a lot, but because it got kind of, again, it got wrapped up in all this. And there was also stuff with the distributors so that this movie was financed by a company called STX, which has kind of gone out of business that sold off their interests. So this got bought up by I can't even remember who MGM or somebody.

"Where are we guys? We got a pretty simple website, WWW dot brio benefits dot com. Anybody can email us at info at brio, be our IO benefits dot com. We are pretty active on LinkedIn. Whether it's me or brio benefits, yeah, and so I think those are three pretty simple ways to check us out. Awesome. I'll give you the last word. If you're talking to the military audience out there, someone on their way out of the military, someone in transition, someone looking for a change. What kind of advice comes to mind as far as going into the corporate world, finding working for startups, entrepreneurship, so enjoy, that's the one question I don't think I was really prepared for. Pretty broad. It's pretty broad. Let me narrow it down for you. If you're talking to somebody that's on the way out of the military, not really sure what they're looking for. What kind of advice would you give them? I would the first thing I would tell them is that's okay. It's okay. That's good. That's great. It's okay to not know what you're looking for. That's going to keep your mind open, right? It's going to create some flexibility in your world, right? But have a plan. I think it's at least a second time that we've talked about it because I think both paths are good. If you want to be an entrepreneur, having flexibility, making sure you're tied to a visionary, and having a plan and making sure you're working on the business, just not in the business. I think is a big deal. If you're coming from the military, you're going to be probably a little bit more familiar with corporate America, right? There's ranks. There's an order. There's a process, right? And so sometimes maybe not knowing maybe learning from the inside there before you become an entrepreneur might be your path. Having a plan and talking to a lot of people to figure out what do they do, what would I do, right? That helped me a lot. I went to a number of round Robin type interviews where I learned probably more about some of the organizations I was talking to than maybe they learned about me, right? They saw a resume, they saw my background, but I was there looking for, okay, who's going to fit me? And I think that would be the other piece of advice, right? For any veteran, it's looking to transition, which is culture matters. So benefits are part of culture, but culture matters. If you're transitioning, whether it's off of active duty, active reserves, from some sort of reserving engagement, you're used to a certain culture. You're used to a certain way of doing things, right? Make sure that you're not just excited about whether it's the annual salary, the fancy office, the free lunch, right? Make sure that the culture fits your personal ideals. Absolutely. And this is a place where you can see yourself working. What are their core values? Ask them that during an interview process. Hey, what are the core values? What's our mission? I think a lot of that's lost on veterans. They're just focused on what the salary is going to be or what the pay is. And they walked themselves into a place that they're not going to be happy yet, because they're just not paying attention to that. Culture matters, right? And it's tough, right? But so I'll give one more phrase that I've borrowed from people. So during that time, I was interviewing with somebody. I remember calling my dad and I was all excited. I was like, oh, man. You wouldn't believe it. They had their cafeteria open 24 hours a day, and it's free. I'm like, that is, that is, that is for like a young single guy, getting out of military. I'm like, dad, I'm not, I'm just gonna eat at work. And he took a deep breath, and he was like, okay, why do you think they keep their cafeteria open 24 hours of death? I was like, I have no idea. He's like, maybe because people use it. 24 hours a day. He's like, is that where you want to work? You want to work? Wow, good point. Good point, because it was an investment firm. It wasn't like a shift working type situation. I was like, oh, man, people must be there all the time. There you go. And a lightbulb went off, right? So culture matters. Absolutely. Yeah. Well, all right, Kevin, great interview. Thanks for sharing your veteran success story. Good to see you doing great things. Brio benefit consulting and we look forward to seeing your future success.

"Do you go about figuring that out? Do you ask the boss, the CEO, or do you survey all the employees? So surveying employees is one way to do it. Basically, we have a two step process, Joe, where we go through a discovery that we take that back and we design a blueprint, which is really just I don't want to say just is really a strategy for what we talked about. And so during the discovery, we try to get to key leaders in the room, some folks from human resources, finance, leadership, executive team, and really figure out, okay, what are we trying to accomplish here? And we take them through a set of questions that hit some of those key areas I just talked about, compliance, cost containment, technology, communication, advocacy. And we start to ask them questions around that, what they're trying to do, what they've done, what's working and what's not working. And we take that back and we build them a strategy. We build them a two to 5 year strategy is what I would call it, which is one of the first things that I was amazed at when I first got into the industry, even with Cigna. I knew how much money people were spending on their benefits. And they didn't have a long-term strategy. They had a, hey, this is what I'm going to do next year because this number that they're asking for is bigger than I expected. And you know, from being a pilot, that's not a great strategy. I flew into this area, man. It was a sandstorm. I didn't expect that. Yeah. So thinking farther ahead instead of just within the next year, a three to 5 year strategy really makes a big difference. Yeah. 100%? Yeah. So what kind of numbers can you share with this at brio customer base volume? A few numbers that we're proud of in the last 5 years since I've joined, we've grown by two and a half times. Our goal in the next 5 years is to grow three times. Of a healthy revenue number. We've been Inc 5000 for the last 5 years. We are the fastest growing benefits consulting firm in the country based on the Inc 5000 numbers. One of the things we're most proud of, Joe, frankly, is that the last three years we've been ranked as one of the best companies to work for as a small employer in the state of New York. As you might imagine, there's a few employers that are considered small employers in the state of New York, we've been number 12, number three, and number two is three years. We always joke about it. We ranked out of the girl scouts one year. Who's better than the girl scouts? But yeah, so we're really proud of those things. And now that we're focusing also on retirement plans, being in the top 100 of advisers in the country is a big deal for us. Having a plan adviser of the year running our department is a very big deal. We're super proud of those things. They don't come always with the number behind them, right? But for us, you know, I always say the best company to work for is huge. Because it signifies two things. The first thing is signifies is we're taking care of our employees. They're happy. And we're doing right by them. And as you know, in the military, that's a big deal. Awesome. You got to keep the troops happy. And keep keep them focused and make sure they know that they're appreciated. But number two, it also means we're doing the things, even as a small employer that we're talking about with our clients. And so we're trying and we're implementing some of the strategies that we're sharing with employer groups. So that success is a big deal for us. Absolutely. Talk a little bit about what being in the military, what your military experience and how that's had a positive effect on your success in corporate America and the business world. Sure. I mean, I alluded to it a little bit before, right? The ability to be flexible. I came here to do one thing and now I'm going to do this other thing. But I'm still responsible for thing I came here to do. Because I technically own that maybe. That worked for me at Cigna because at Cigna, I did just about every job starting as a customer service associate until my role. But that was because I recognized, okay, maybe somebody needs help over here. How do I learn that and do that? In a small organization, you have to do that. You have to be able to wear a different hats. You have to be able to pitch in, you have to be able to help each other out because there's just not as many hands. And so that mentality of not in my job description. I'm going to sit at my desk and let somebody else do that. That is not a way to succeed as a small business or as an entrepreneur that's trying to grow their business, right? Absolutely. So that, but I learned that in another. I learned that in the military, you know, you think about that from what is a unit next to me doing and what does that mean I have to do, right? Or do I know the job of everybody in the squad as we go into this in case I have to do one of those jobs, right? And I think they can those factors are huge. The other thing I would tell you, Joe for the military is just planning. People can execute. The thing that I think is paramount, though, is can people plan? And if you have a plan, at least in my history, we generally achieve it. So the question is, do you have a plan? Because otherwise, you're just executing and it happens by accident. Right. Exactly. Yeah. Which could be great. That could be awesome. Sometimes. But I worked for I worked for an individual and I've stolen this phrase from him for about 15 years now. You know, he walked out of his office, he was a two star general. And he looked at me and I told him some great news. And he just looked at me and said, talk about it, I know about that. Is it what? No surprises are good. He's like, you just surprised me with good news, which should be exciting, but I should have known that that was happening because I'm in charge. Good point. Right? Okay, noted. Notice, right? Yeah. And but that's because he might have blessed the plan. But he would have made sure that we had a full plan. That this was happening other than this is the end result. Yeah. Exactly. Absolutely. So how do we find out more about brio?

"Said it before, right? We try to help employers attract and retain the best talent in their marketplace. One of the ways employers can do that, especially in a competitive marketplace, is through their benefit package. That was a very big deal, not so much right now. I think what could potentially be on the tip of a recession, right? People are. The employers starting to be back in the driver's seat, but if you push the clock back, 8 months ago, when people were talking about the great resignation, right? Things of that nature. What are your benefits look like? What are you doing to appreciate your employees to your employees, know that? How are you communicating with them? Because one of the things that we've always recognized is that I don't know a lot of employers that have really poor benefit programs. What we've noticed is they have a very poor way of communicating with their employees, how great their benefit program is. And so, you know, you think about what you said before about leaving a large employer to go to a smaller employer, well, very often, a smaller employer is sitting there going, well, I can't put the same things on the table for you as an employee that this giant employer did. And so one of the things that we try to do because of our extensive industry knowledge is bring some of those conversations that those really large companies are having, down market. Because there's no reason very many of those 200 employee groups, 300 employee firms, can't be doing some of these same things. They just haven't been educated on them. And they haven't been explained exactly what these things are and how to use them to their advantage with their employees. Yeah. Or there's a perception that it might be too costly for the company to provide those? Yeah. Great. And so, I mean, to me, that is the table stakes Joe and what we do, right? It's service and cost containment. If we're not doing those things, it's hard to get strategic on all of the other fun stuff, right? All the stuff that differentiates you. Think about that like anything else. If you're not passing your PT test, nobody's going to think that, oh, man, maybe this person should be the one to go to this next school that's coming up. It's the same concept. Absolutely. So does brio benefit consulting? Do you work across the spectrum of benefits? We mostly talking healthcare or everything in between. So we consider ourselves to be a full service brokerage. We were typically people think of as health and welfare benefits. So it's going to be your healthcare dental life disability, and we also have a rapidly growing retirement services department. That last year was ranked the top 100 adviser in the country and our lead director, one plant adviser of the year. As well. So all of the quote unquote benefits that employers are offering their employees, everything from your medical benefits to pet insurance to retirement plans. Pet insurance, yeah. Head insurance cost anyways. I've been hearing a lot about that lately. Somebody's doing a good job marketing, but that's the type of thing that we talked to employers about. Because you giggle about it, employees spend their money on it, and guess what? They're more excited that you offered them a comprehensive that insurance plan sometimes in the dental program or the medical program that you're giving them. That's that does not surprise me, actually. I mean, that's crazy, but it does not surprise me. We love our pets in America. That's for sure. That is true. Yeah, so what are some of the, what are some of the common roadblocks or issues you see with the smaller sized companies in providing good benefits packages and how do you fill that void? So, you know, one of the things that I think I've already mentioned, right? So I think there's two right. So that they always come to mind. One is knowing what's available to them, right? So very often, and I think entrepreneur entrepreneurs will hear this as well. Because they have to offer their employees benefits for themselves benefits. And they don't know what's out there. More importantly, they don't know what other people are doing. So educating them on what are the best performing groups doing, how is that benchmarked? How do I know what my employees are looking for? That is kind of where it starts, right? So educating folks the availability and where they rank and what other people are doing. The other thing is, frankly, having a consultant that's willing to do the work with you, right? So we're a smaller firm and we don't have a time and expense model, like a couple of the what I would consider to be large national firms that, frankly, like things have to fit into that model. And so if you're educated and you're risk tolerances such as you want to do something in order to try to contain your costs long term, we're going to work with you to try to do that. But the first thing that has to happen is knowing what's available and knowing what the best performing groups are doing, whether it's in a cost containment, a communication strategy, how am I working with compliance and advocacy, all of those things. And so that you know how do I bring these things to my employees because I think very often that's one of the struggles when it comes to, you know, I don't consider a hundred employee firm, a small firm. In the grand scheme of things, some folks look at them that way. But one of the struggles is I've got an idea, how do I bring that to my team? Yeah. And do you find a wide variety of different needs from one company that's got a couple of hundred people to a different company that's got 200 people? Does it vary that much? So again, I would tell you what are they trying to achieve? And so, you know, it's hard to look at and I think this is where we notice that there was a spot in the marketplace where we were like, hey, some of these folks are not being served correctly. Because if somebody looks at every 200 employee firm is the same thing, they're not. So they might be a nonprofit. They might have different desires and their employees might have different needs and wants. Somebody else might be a financial services firm. They might have employees with different needs and wants with a different demographic breakout, a different age group, right? And so how am I servicing those folks? Just because they're the same size employer doesn't mean they've got the same people. And so how do you design a strategy that's going to meet your people's needs and help you get the best people that you can in your marketing in

"Think it will be. Yeah, it was definitely not one weekend a month, right? I came from an 18th airborne corps unit to a reserve unit. And so, you know, let's be honest, there was a bit of a mindset that I had about what the reserves were probably like. And it wasn't like that. And it's not a one weekend a month situation because you're thinking about stuff, you're writing orders, you're doing risk assessments. You're doing all this stuff while you're also working your job. And your unit doesn't care that you were working late on a Friday. They expect you to be there maybe on a Friday night. And just like your employer doesn't care. I mean, they do care, right?

Back talking with army veteran Kevin Ritchie, chief business officer at Rio benefit consulting. So Kevin, your fat dumb and happy warm and warm and cozy in the corporate life at Cigna for 18 years, lots of success, tearing up the program, what was going through your mind, what triggered you to walk away from that and really go into more of a more of a startup smaller mover shaker entrepreneurial type mentality company like brio benefit. So I think Joe sometimes it's exactly what happens with all entrepreneurs, right? I was happy, right? Cigna is an unbelievable employer. The people there are amazing, I had a bunch of responsibility, right? I helped manage the New York City office. One of their largest offices in the country. And frankly, in the world, it's an international company. I had a relationship with the CEO of a fortune 50 company. That we knew each other by name. We could talk to each other. People. Which is like having a relationship with a four star general. And realistically, what was knowing at me was there's a better way to do this, right? So benefits is a B2C type sale, meaning business to consultant to purchase her. And a couple of folks I had come up with in the business. It Cigna had started brio before. And we are very close and very friendly, and we kept talking about when are we going to do something? But it took the lightbulb for me to go off when I started realizing that there was a better way. I was watching a lot of what I consider to be large national consulting houses, and they were fitting the clients, the employers into their box. Where we had noticed throughout our career, Ben, why doesn't anybody fit themselves into the employer's box to help them do what they think they want to do? Strategically to attract and retain the best talent. In the marketplace, because that's what benefits are all about. And so, you know, I don't want to say life-changing type events, but we had a child. We had another one on the way. And that gets your brain starting to think about like, hey, you know what? Am I doing the things that are going to make my children proud? Changing an industry is something that can make your family proud. My family would have been totally proud of me if I had a 40 year career as most people were expecting it signal. But charting your own way, creating a new way to do things while you're also helping people in their business, be more successful. Just was drawing me like a magnet. Draw me like a magnet. And at brio, I knew the three of us, Jason Pastrana and rich Kaczynski who created the firm, had different angles of the way we looked at things. And it always worked out together, right? So we had different directions to come to sometimes the same answer. That's a great opportunity for entrepreneurs, right? We don't always want somebody to thinking the same exact way you are. But if you get to the same destination, man, that's pretty cool. Oh, yeah. That's hard to find. Yes. So you guys are approaching things from different viewpoints, but all coming to the same conclusion, which that means you've got a really good business idea. Yeah, and also write and having different skill sets. Yeah. Right? Having different opportunities where, you know, you recognize, okay, that might be somebody else's strength and it's not mine. I might have an idea, but I need somebody else to execute it, right? And having the comfort and what I would say, not just the comfort, the full belief, like you would with a teammate in the military, that this person is going to get that done. Yeah. All right, so talk about brio benefit consulting. What are the, what are the nuts and bolts of what you guys do there? Sure, so what we do is, you know, I
"ritchie" Discussed on Veteran on the Move
"You did in the army. Sure, Joe, so I was from an army family, I had left college and I remember going to my local recruiting station. I think I was a little bit of a dream, having a college graduate walk in and say, hey, economy's not great right now. What's there in there for me? And it was interesting. I saw the great bill of goods to become a 52 delta. But what I didn't know was that was one of my first blessings in disguise. When it came to my army career, because what that allowed me to do was learn a very interesting skill as a generator mechanic, but at the same time, you get assigned to different jobs, right? So I got assigned to Vardy and into vardi, you have to learn how to be an artillery event. Whether you are or not. And so that was the first time I started to learn about flexibility. Did a lot of wonderful things. As an enlisted soldier, you know, was on the sergeant's list. All those types of things. And then took the opportunity to go to OCS. At OCS, of course, when they ask you to put down what branches you're hoping to get, I put down all combat arms to find out that I'm going to be a chemical officer. And I would say that was my second blessing in disguise because again, I remember standing there at the de facto fort benning at a little tear in my eye when they told me this. And what I didn't realize was as a chemical officer on battalion staff, I have to learn what that battalion does. And so the flexibility that it offered me to what I was working with military police are working with aviation or working with engineers. I had to learn how they did their job. And so what I didn't realize at the time was it was giving me a real opportunity to learn more than just my skill. And as we get further in this conversation, that to me is part of what being an entrepreneur is about. You can't just stay in one lane and you have to know how to do other skills. And so, you know, my last real role in the army was helping to advise the Iraqi police, specifically some of the regional police departments across MD north and help them stand up about 29,000 new I'm going to call them police officers during the search. Isn't it interesting how we all go into the military sinking? We've got an MOS and that's what we're going to do. And the reality is that it's such a small part of what you spend your time doing in the military. And as it's happening, every time you get farmed out or tasked with something that has nothing to do with your MLS, this is not what I was getting into. You become flexible. You get the job done, and it happens all the time. And after a few years, you come out of the military with such a well rounded experience of, like you said, flexibility, being able to adjust, being able to accomplish things at a 100% completion, things that you don't really like typically doing. Yeah, I wouldn't even say that I didn't like typically doing it. For me, it was more that I had to learn, right? Being an assistant S three in an aviation battalion, I wrote in helicopters. What do I know about that, right? And then we had no S two, and we were getting ready to deploy. And they were like, okay, you need to be the S two. Go figure out military intelligence. Yeah. You know, I think it almost builds this, it builds this tolerance or this comfortableness with being in charge or something, and you have no idea how to operate. Yeah. And how do I sit down and learn it? And if I learned it this way, is this the way everybody else is going to learn it because there's people either beside me underneath me above me that might need to learn these same things. And how do I transition this knowledge? How do I educate the people around me so that we're all on the same page? Absolutely. Talk about your transition out of the army. So I guess I technically had two, right? There was a transition from active duty. Into the national garden reserves. And going back to school, you know, I think that process was a little eye opening for me. I thought that there was, you know, I would say one of my first entrepreneurial ideas was, you know, is there some type of service that could better afford these veterans that are coming out to learn how to whether it's applied to college, how do I get credits for the skills that I learned in the military? What are the resources that I should be building? How do I figure out where to live, those types of things? I was pretty lucky. I had an extended family member's home that I could live at as I went back to get another degree. And then I just so happened taking apart time job at Cigna that ended up becoming about an 18 year career. That I expected to be a part time job. And so that was kind of the first transition, right? Getting all those ducks in a row, those types of things. The second transition was when I fully resigned from the reserves, being that it was in the reserves and that I had resigned. I would tell you that, you know, I just didn't go the next month, right? That was a little bit of a transition that oh man, I've got some time now on my hands that I didn't have previously. But for me, more than the things, Joe, the transition is more mental. Right? What am I responsible for now? And as a leader, you know, you care about the people you used to lead, whether it was active duty. Or reserves. And so, you know, keeping in touch with those folks and keeping a tab on them was a little bit more of my transition out of the reserves. Because I knew that some of these folks had never deployed at the time there was probably going to be a bunch more deployments that were going to be happening. And so, you know, keeping, I would say, an emotional check on some of the folks that you used to lead. I would say was kind of something I did a little bit over time and waned it off, right? But that was more of my transition out of the reserves. Yeah. Leave an active duty going into the reserves is a really good transition to do. I mean, there's a lot of opportunity in the reserves just depends on what your personal goals and life situation is. But sometimes having been active duty, drilling reservist and active reserve, sometimes being a reservist is more difficult than just being on active duty because at least active duty you're just all in and that's what you do and you don't have to think about anything else. But when you're reservist, you're trying to balance a whole bunch of different things and whether it's going to school and having a job and showing up on drew weekends, ready to go. So sometimes being a reserve could be more taxing mentally and emotionally
Daniel Ritchie Credits Youth Pastor for Helping Him Trust God
"You're going, okay, lord, I'm going to give you a chance. Help me to what? Fill in the blank. How many love people more? What was the trigger for you to say, all right, I'm going to trust God. Yeah. Yeah, I think it was so buddy of mine in school. He invites me to a youth group Dodge ball. Oh man, yeah, yeah, and so this is the overnight locking man. Yeah, armless people are garbage at dodgeball. And so it's like, you know, I get beaten to death for the first four hours of the night. And then the youth passion gets up, talks about God's love, quick little devotion, night keeps going, guys, keep playing Dodge while I sit out. I'm done. And this youth pastor comes over and he starts to talk to me, and I think he very quickly picked up, I think, just on my insecurity, my hurt. Oh my goodness. And as he starts to talk to me, I'm sitting here going, you know, man, you just talked to me about the love of God, and I don't see any of that love in grace in my life at all. And then he just very faithfully for probably the next hour like walks me through just the biblical picture of God's grace towards me, not only in that he very purposefully made me and my mother's womb like I am. I was in a mutation. I wasn't an accident. But then for him to walk me through the gospel too that what God does is that even though I question his love for me that he sends his son to live the perfect life I couldn't live to die the death that I should die. God raises into life to show his power over both sin and death. And to those who trust in him, he adopts you into the family of God and he sends you out on a mission of God. And I think for me to at that point to see the gospel in that lens and for me to not keep score of God's grace towards me on my terms, but on his man, that changed everything. That was the night out. Yeah, trusted and rested in Christ as my
Daniel Ritchie: 'I Was Keeping Count of God's Love & Grace Towards Me'
"Sure. that? Again, just the way people treated you. The evil nature of it. I mean, it's really the send nature of our flesh. For people to do that, to be ugly towards you, because you have this handicap. I mean, my goodness, it's totally out of your control. It's not like you choose this. I mean, especially in my teens, early teens, it really. I mean, it was a downward spiral. For sure. I think just insecurity with myself. I started to hate other people. Because meeting new people for me was just, all right, another person who's going to judge me. And then two, it's like, I think very comparatively, even though I was raised in church, I was keeping score of God's love and grace towards me on my terms. And so what I started to do, I think, was, all right, God loves you guys. He gave you ten fingers two arms. You are normal. Right, right. So why doesn't God love me like he loves you. And so even in that, I really started to question the love and grace of God towards me just because of my
How Daniel Ritchie Navigates Every Day With No Arms
"First, I guess, tell us what it's like to navigate every day with no arms. Yeah, I mean, it's certainly complicated. You know, the world we live in is made by people with arms for people with arms and so there's a lot of things. I mean, opening a door is like a multi step process for me using a cell phone. There's ways around it, but it's just, it's a little bit more complicated. Right. But you know what's amazing, just watching you as we started getting going here, you use your feet amazingly well, almost as a person would use their hands. Yeah. Yeah. And that is, I mean, right there is a triumph for you, right? Oh, yeah. I mean, at this point, I mean, literally be second nature, and it's like even for me to get up some mornings and it's like, I'll look in the mirror when I'm waking up and be like, oh yeah. I don't have arms. You know, it's like, I think one of the most apparent things about me sometimes I just forget because this is just, this is all I've ever

The People vs Britney Spears
"Zoe. Thank you so much for being here with us today. There is obviously so much to talk about. Yes great here. Yeah so we've covered brittany's testimony on our daily show rich and daily last week but we really wanted to talk to an expert about the case. Yeah we definitely need someone to break things down for us and our ritchie's okay. Happy to see what i can do. Yeah okay so we're going to just jump right in. So britney said a lot of shocking things in her testimony but for me. At least the biggest bombshell was that she was forced to have an iud inserted even though she wants to get married and have another kid and worse. It turns out that it's completely legal. Can you talk a little bit about how that's even possible. Yes sure When a person is under a conservative ship or guardianship the court has taken away that person's right to make their own decisions about their life and in many cases that includes decisions about reproductive freedom and so it appears that in this case as as in many conservatives ships and guardian ships the court has given the power to make decisions about brittany's reproductive choices to her conservators so there were definitely some other. Jaw droppers. one thing that was crazy to me is that britney said she felt like she was being sex trafficked because she had no control over her life in you know as we all know she'd been forced to work and had no input into how her money was spent she even talked about being forced to take lithium because she objected to something. Her managers requested. Now those seem like very extreme circumstances for someone to live under. What are some of the typical arrangements in conservative ships. Are these things normal. One of the things. That's really difficult about this. Area is that there's so little data and so little oversight so we don't really know what's normal and what's not but we have no idea what's happening because that's sort of built into conservative ships in one of the real problems with them. Is that the control over your life. Your body your choices. How you spend your money how you make your money is given to someone else. And there isn't much or any review of of how the conservatives making those choices or what choices the conservative is making for you and about you

"I thought that was a big sign. Like they didn't immediately say and we're going to double it again in another few years. They just let it go at that point and i thought well maybe they've learned something and they're going to go in and in the face of all of these potential obstacles and ill will. They'll say okay now. You know the app store is performing way beyond our wildest dreams. Steve said he'd been in super happy off. It operated just slightly above break even and now. It's this powerhouse and we're going to return that value to all of you. That helped us build. It would've been a perfect opportunity but same thing. When they saw that value wasn't leaving the app store that some people would pay for convenience. Same thing when once they made those numbers for wall street with the services they did nothing. They left the status quo. Even with that famous. Now phil schiller letter. Just left the status quo. And that i don't understand because that was just such an obvious. Missile rearing straight at them. Yeah the schiller I wrote about that just before. Wwe i think. I literally the morning of wwe see Striking and i'm not surprised that it exists because i i know phil schiller well enough to know that he would think of things like this and i know that he thinks he sees the value in the brand something you can't put a dollar price on And again it's like look at the ipod right. I do think some of the mistakes that apple made in hindsight were coming from the ipod where everything was either a a a song or a tv show or movie that you pay you know a dollar or you pay ten dollars for the movie and apple keeps thirty percent and the producer of the song the artist the publisher of the song or the studio behind the movie gets seventy percent and that's a much better cut than they got in the old days in retail selling disks or tapes and it works out for everybody and you know the rules upfront and its purchasing. There's no there is no concept of subscriptions are in that purchases or something like that and only one middle person. There's no two middle. People often exists in the app store. Now right and i think you know. They looked at the app store. The same way that you know you'd buy these apps for dollar five dollars or ten dollars. I mean it's kind of funny when you look at the first app store. The the announcement of the app store. How how the prices. They were put up in their pathetic you know. Here's an example. Look like you know it was and it was based on their concept of the mac market. Right where that's how. Independent third party. Mac apps were sold. You'd make happen if you wanted it to be paid app. You'd sell it for twenty bucks or thirty bucks forty bucks or you know ridiculous. Prices like fifty dollars for an application. What they cost before the iphone. And i bought a stupid sticky notes out for the palmetto s. It was like fifty bucks. I remember buying apps for the us. They were definitely similarly priced to to the mac. It wasn't just like oh it's a tiny device in your pocket so the price should be tiny to It was no. This is what third party. Independent software costs. Whatever the form. And i think apple based their conception of how it would work on that But the idea of just the basic idea that he tossed out there. Do we think seventy thirty is gonna last forever and if not. why don't we just you know. Why don't we pick a number like a billion dollars a year run rate and you know once we reach it you know. We could lower the rate to keep it at a billion as it grows. Twenty five seventy five. Twenty eighty eighty five fifteen. I think if they had done that dade be it stayed still be so much higher than a billion dollars a year run rate because i think the other funny thing looking at these emails from the epic trial is how much more popular the iphone app. Store both are than even their internal wildest dreams right. It's you know you even just said steve jobs when they announced the original iphone. Who is like. We're shooting for one percent market fair. We think that'd be great. You know we'll take the premium one percent market share. It's ridiculous al successful spin but they don't. The other thing is with ipod. They didn't need the money from itunes. They needed the money from the ipods. Made a primary business of the company with selling ipods in music business was selling ipods and their secondary business was a great music store in a then great desktop music.

These really people you know. When i went back to the jeff schwartz interview. I wanted to make sure that it was ritchie torres. He was talking about. I was like this was an amazing interview again. Not because of a jeff schwartz shared tremendous wisdom so if you rate in review and it climbs the ladder more people learn about it. Find out about it. Listen to it more. People are inspired by anything else. You want to close with going on in your lives going on in the community as we continue to grow very excited to announce that are schule is really back. Our community is back. We talked about that last week. In terms of shoes We consulted today and we hope within the next couple of weeks. We're going to be able to move to a mask optional. For all vaccinated unvaccinated children. Not nothing yet but when we hit the date after which anyone who wants to be fully vaccinated meeting two weeks after the second vaccine could be then at that point the burden shifts. So we're looking forward to be able to be a community that embraces all in that way and nothing definitive nothing conclusive hopefully. I won't regret even saying that right now but we are looking towards that and grateful for that opportunity..
"ritchie" Discussed on Behind the Bima
"Because i'm sure he gets back lashing and for all the nice text messages he gets. I'm sure social media's media's has pretty and Takes a lot to put yourself as the face of that. Yeah yeah and. I don't want to jump on the bandwagon terms of the pushback on his elected leaders. Who feels are failing him. But i do think it leads to important conversation. I wanted to have tonight. I want to bring on the congressman. So maybe we'll have an afterwards but if you're following the story about mark ruffalo who's a thing is his name who's an actor who horrific things about israel. While rockets raining down on describing israel is committing genocide and only afterwards now apologizing. And you know what's what's the value of an apology. Should we run to accept it. Is it deserved as it warranted when the damage done from kind of rhetoric is is the experience that that joseph hat in the streets of manhattan so the notion of kind of the on. Line the offline we had matthew hilts have gone a few weeks ago. Who represents a lot of high profile people in the going through crisis and he represented meyers leonard. Who had his incident and he talked to us about how he navigated that incident. I actually spoke to meyers today. And i'll to this moment myers is still not. He'd come up behind the you just want to do an interview. He's not writing tweet. he's not putting out. A statement of an his goal is not to convince anyone that has remorse regret. His goal is to prove that was matthews guidance. And i i took a lot from that that night that wisdom. That said. Don't tell people what you're going to do do it. And then you can tell them what you've done right. That alone was was really really a lot of wisdom. When you've made a mistake don't come out. Don't come out blazing with everything you're going to do. Just just do what you should be doing and then you can talk about. Look i made a mistake in. Here's what i've done since. I do think there's a difference though. In the the meyers leonard case it was kind of in a vacuum. He made a comment. he shouldn't have made an clearly. He's been remorseful. And i know you're in touch with him all the time and been mentoring him along. Its you've developed a nice friendship with him but in the context of a war where rockets are being fired in israel in the rhetoric online is so heated and so inflammatory. I do believe words. They're carrying extra level of significance in view. Say a comment of anti israel anti zionism and you further stoke the coles certainly in the heat environment in which we live. There's an added level of responsibility for those words. Well let's come back. I want to continue this conversation after. We have the congressman. Because i think it's an important one to have and there's certainly different a legitimate positions on it. I'd love to continue to have it It's really an honor to have Representative ritchie torres. Who is a first term congressman from the bronx. The bronx i think..
Indoor Dining Returns in New York
"Right a big day for pandemic street stricken restaurants in New York because a ban on indoor dining is being partially lifted. Hundreds of restaurants have gone out of business in the past year. Others Barely afloat. But as Tom Brooke reports the move to bring back indoor dining or being on a limited basis, it's not being welcomed by everyone. Chicken sizzles on a grill at Friedman's restaurant on New York's Upper West Side, the establishment is alive. But much of the restaurant industry in the city is moribund from Grand Eater is like the Gotham Bar and Grill, which may reopen to the more ordinary nearby Good stuff, Diner. More than 1000 restaurants have closed fallen victim to covert 19 so start indoor dining on Friday. 25% Governor Cuomo's decision this week to lift the ban on indoor dining up to 25% of capacity is seen as a bit of a lifesaver. Jonah Phillips is the owner of Friedman's restaurant group. We're excited, too. Get our guests back in the restaurant. I think something that we've lost. Is that excitement and energy that you felt when you walked to a restaurant that had guests, innit, eating and drinking and dining. It's fun without indoor dining restaurants in the city have relied on take out and delivery service to stay in business. They've also resorted to extraordinary steps to make outdoor dining and freezing temperatures feasible in some instances, creating huge bubble light structures protecting diners, AFIS it outdoors and eat. Some won't be eating indoors anytime soon, Even though Governor Cuomo has decreed they now can, among them. New Yorker Claire Wachtel, who were sipping tea is an outdoor space belonging to Friedman's on 72nd Street. I won't go into an indoor dining Until this is all over because I think you're relatively safe if you're outside, But if you're in the dining area, it's I'd be too scared to do it. Even the rescue workers are now eligible to get vaccinated and restaurants have implemented numerous safety measures. Some health experts caution that the return to indoor dining is premature. Go out to dinner. CASS is from Columbia University Medical Center opening Internet now, at least to me, while we're just first getting to the point of controlling the spread of this virus Does not seem like the right next step. While mindful off health concerns getting restaurants to flourish economically. It's what Andrew Ritchie from the New York City hospitality alliance really wants to him. That's the priority over the past year. We've lost more than 140,000 jobs in New York City's restaurant industry and indoor dining has been opened up throughout the rest of New York state at 50% indoor occupancy since June. Partial lifting of the indoor dining band is precarious. With infection rates increased. Governor Cuomo has stated it may be reimposed those still working in the hospitality business. No, it's going to be a long, hard slog before the restaurant industry in New York returns to anything like normal. Nikki Joyce is a waitress at tea and sympathy. A much loved British comfort food eatery in the city. Will it get back to where it wasp where you have people, you know, shoulder to shoulder for deeper bars. I just can't see. Unfortunately and sad, but I don't see that happening any time soon. Fervent hope is that Governor Cuomo's partial lifting of the indoor dining band this week will mark the start of the long road back. Away in New York once again boast, but it's home to one of the most lively on fairy restaurant scenes in the world. There you

G and he is the founder and principal of rich g high performance coaching in his role rich supports a broad range of people who seek to improve their on the job. Results and career outcomes. After nearly a year of workplace disruption from covid professionals are seeking ways to get unstuck to find and adopt new strategies. That will make them effective leaders in their field support. And that's where riches involvements with them truly payoff we cover a lot of ground in this episode including how rich engages with professionals to help them succeed but we also venture into other areas of discussion including how changes in the workplace affect worker performance and richest thoughts on how the gig economy will help us to find into meaningful work. I spoke with rich g in december. Twenty twenty over zoom ritchie. Welcome to the podcast dan. It's a pleasure to be here on a cold december morning. No it's raining outside so before we get started. I was wondering if you could tell us about your company. G high performance coaching. What is that exactly. And how do you provide value to your clients. That's a question. I get a lot because a lot of people don't know what coaching inns. So i usually start out whenever. I do a workshop or all webinar presentation of product group. I always start with this quote by buzz aldrin. There are people who make things happen and there are people who watch things happen and there are people who wonder what happened. Who are you going to be. Twenty twenty one. And that's really what encapsulates. Mike coaching is that i get you to make things happen. A lot of people sit by the sidelines ago. How did he do that. How did she do that. Oh my goodness. I get you there so i help people step back and look at their career or their business from the long perspective. What's working what isn't working. Is it time for a change. And that's a critical juncture. A lot of people are afraid of changing something that they think has worked for years in isn't working right now but they're afraid to change it to get them out of that comfort zone into an area that might scare them a little bit and most importantly how do i make that change. So let's talk about the high performers. You coach how would you describe them. And the work that they do high performers is kind of like a misnomer but those are the people out there. And you're probably wanna you are one but a lot of your listeners. Are high performers. There are people out there crushing it every day. But they feel that they might have hit a ceiling crest in their career or their business and they need someone to help them break through to the next level or they're stuck or have been blindsided in their career and have to get back up in start crushing again. So that's why. I'm not near life forever like cable tv. I'm there for about a months or a year or two to help you get back into crushing it. So what motivates someone to pick up the phone and call you rich well. They want to accelerate their success. That doesn't just mean money. It's increasing the challenges. The interactions the fund of business. We all look for and they pick up the phone because they realize they can't do it alone. They hear from a colleague or trusted friend that they should maybe hire a coach. It's very common for who's successful executives in business owners to have a coach. They don't advertise it. And i'm one of the best kept secrets in. Since
A Special Conversation with Congressman Ritchie Torres
"Representative ritchie. Torres is a freshman member of congress. From new york's fifteenth congressional district. He is proudly progressive and proudly pro israel and we had hoped to have him on to talk about how important it is to make that progressive case for israel the riot at the capitol changed our plans unfortunately and he joins us now to talk about what comes next representative torres so much for joining us and honor for me to be here. Last wednesday was extremely scary for all of us. But i can't even imagine what it would have been like to be in the capital for it and we're also not entirely out of the woods yet with possible. Threats still brewing. Think so let me start here and just ask this. How are you holding up. It has been the most draining and disorienting week of my life. If a year ago you had said that. I would become a member of congress during infectious disease outbreak and that i would witness of violent insurrection against the us capital during the electoral college. Vote count and that i would then impeach donald trump. Not only once but twice. I would have said that has the feel of movie. I'm still in a state of shock. And i'm in a state of shock that a sitting president would instigate a violent mob to storm the us capital in an attempt to overturn the results of a presidential election. You are among the members of congress calling for the house to impeach president trump again. Although i suppose this is your first time impeaching him and that's a process that looks set to move forward this week. People are also talking about a resolution censuring ham or demanding resigned or using the twenty fifth or the fourteenth amendment's to remove him from office. What would satisfy you hear. What kind of action do you think that this moment calls for will. The best outcome is removal. And we've presented the vice president would alternate him. Is you invoke the twenty fifth amendment or else. We have no choice but to move forward with impeachment. It is clear that the vice president refuses to invoke the twenty fifth amendment in conjunction with a majority of the cabinet so we have no choice but to impeach donald trump the violent mob. He unleashed on the. Us capital represents unprecedented assault on the separation of powers between the congress and the president. A represents an unprecedented assault on the peaceful transfer of power from one president to the next if striking at the core of our constitutional republic is not an impeachable offense. Then what is impeachment for no choice just moments before you and i connected. The new york times reported that senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell is actually pleased with the impending impeachment. do you think with mcconnell. 's implicit blessing. There's actually a chance that the senate might remove president trump from office so there are three outcomes spouse majority is required for impeachment a senate super majority is required for conviction and then once impeach convicted a senate majority is required for disqualification so the ultimate goal is not simply removed donald trump from office but to disqualify him from ever pursuing federal office again because he has shown himself to be a lethal threat to the republic is clear and present danger to the constitutional republic and what about aside from president. Trump are their members of congress. Either with you in the house or in the senate who you think crossed the line in what took place last week. There were several enablers of donald trump in the united states congress and elsewhere who spent months inflaming the disaffected supporters of donald trump. One example is congressman. Mel brooks went to the march and instigated an armed angry mob to vote. Take names and kick ass. He should be held out. We as elected officials have to be mindful of the words believes. What does it mean to be held accountable in this instance though. What does that look like expulsion at the conduct of for me. The attempt to overturn the results of an election the attempt to instigate a violent mob to take over the us capitol if that is not grounds for expulsion. That i honestly don't know what it's these members of congress and donald trump inspired a violent mob that led to the murder of police office was bludgeoned to death by a fire. Extinguisher are their image. Is of a rioter in the senate chamber wearing tactical gear with plastic handcuffs. As though he were planning to take hostages right. I'm convinced that there were rioters. Who were intent on apprehending and assassinating members of congress. The majority leader the speaker and even the vice president is a video of rieter screaming. The vice president should be hanged a news and a gala were erected outside the capitol and the president was tweeting out against his own vice-president in real time while the capitol was under siege was pouring more gasoline on the fire above violence. He put not only congress at rescue. Put the life of his own vice president. Aris one of your fellow freshman members Also said something to the effect of when speaking to people who are concerned about the outcome of the election He said it's okay to threaten them a little right. It's okay to to threaten members of congress a little. This was madison cawthorn from north carolina in addition to representative brooks. Are there other people who you think you know. Their actions kind of rise to a certain level needs to be a conference investigation to determine which members of congress had a role in inciting insurrection. Against the us congress which is disqualifying which should disqualify you from holding office and it's worth pointing out that. There was a deep strain not only racism antisemitism among the elements of the violent bomb. If i recall correctly one or several of the writers had a shirt that read kim auschwitz. You had confederate flags who had symbols of racism and antisemitism white supremacy for aiding the violent mob. That attempted to take over the capital. It should be cause for concern and you know trumpism is going to have more staying power than trump. I worry that violent white nationalism. Violent antisemitism and racism is going to be a fact of life that will continue to haunt us. Now i think of politics as an alternative to violence. Politics is about the resolution of conflict by means other than violence and if there is a set of the population that loses confidence in politics that sees it as illegitimate and trump has convinced them. That it's illegitimate then. That segment is going to resort to violence. The d. legitimation politics is an open invitation to violence. And i think the jewish community in particular has the most state because history has taught us that paranoid. Conspiratorial politics is often a breeding ground fantasy sentences. I know if we have the most at stake or among the most at stake but certainly everything that we saw last week out of that riot was vile but certainly the racism. The anti semitism really terrible to our listeners. Who don't yet follow. Ajc dot global on instagram. I would encourage you to check out the instagram slider that our team put together detailing some of the anti semitism that the congressman talks

Good day internet at patriotair dot com slash dpd s. Let's start with a few things you should know. Amazon has discontinued its prime pantry. Grocery and household item service products previously available in pantry will now be available like any other products on amazon. So it's not going away to gather but the service itself prime pantry launched in twenty fourteen offering reduced shipping on up to forty five pounds of household goods for a monthly fee. Amazon node vied prime pant pantry subscribers about the closure in december and then issued refunds the. Uk's competition and markets authority launched an investigation into google's privacy sandbox. That would block third party. Cookies in chrome regulator received complaints from the marketers for an open web coalition saying the plan would abuse google's dominant position in online advertising. So the investigations going to evaluate. If the privacy sandbox changes would concentrate advertising spending market share with google samsung launched the galaxy chromebook to a cheaper version of the galaxy chromebook at launched last year so instead of four k it has a ten eighty p lcd screen with less storage fewer cameras less ram.

Three inch nineteen twenty by ten eight hundred sixteen nine. Lcd touchscreen with the dual core intel seller on five twenty five you upgradable to an intel core. I three ten ten eleven ten one. one zero. You eight gigs. Ram and one hundred twenty five gigs of storage for six hundred ninety nine dollars a shortage of semiconductors affecting automakers. Volkswagen said last month that they needed to adjust first-quarter manufacturing plans around the globe because of the shortage. Now honda says it will cut domestic output by about four thousand cars this month at one of its factories in japan nissan is adjusting production numbers for its note hatchback model and ford has moved up previously planned downtime at a kentucky plant for its sport utility vehicle factory to the jin chips all right. Well we're talking about cars. Let's talk about the the apple car. Yeah a lot of rumors as of late will really over the last few years. But but but the rumors had resurfaced recently and hyundais. Now talking to apple about kerr's so says the company hyundai representative told cnbc quotes. We understand that apple isn't discussion with a variety of global automakers including hyundai motor as the discussion is at its early stage. Nothing has been decided. Korean economic daily said that apple suggested the arrangements and hundred was reviewing the terms that involved e production and also battery development hyundai has had his own battery platform called e. g. m. p. going into production later this year. So might be saying what you're doing. Reuters sources say that apple would like to produce a passenger vehicle by twenty twenty four however might not be that date bloomberg's mark gurman reports in thomas e. v. from apple is five to seven years away and michio recently said he wouldn't be surprised if it takes until twenty twenty eight. Yes what's probably going on. Here is apple and i think this significant part has decided to start investigating how they would build. Whatever it is. They're going to build whether it's a whole car or an integrated platform and they're going to different manufacturers and parts suppliers and folks like magna including hyundai. And saying what are you got. How can you help us with this. And is a great company for this because they make parts they make systems. They make full cars. There's all kinds of services in the conday company that could play a part with apple so it may not be. That apple knows what they want from hyundai. It may just be that they're going and saying hey let's talk. You do a lot of the kinds of things that we think we're going to need. I'm pretty excited about this. I just got my first hyundai ever this year and my perception of this story was weight but hyundai currently uses android auto and a lot of their their cars. So i would love to see. How apple would integrate Hyundai's current technologies into something that is very useful for that apple ecosystem not just looking at e itself but also the The the systems inside of it the controls in how they would manage that four a driver and a passenger in the car. Yeah i mean. I think that's one of the big questions that i have is okay. Let's say let's say it's hyundai that that applet ended up working with with clearly not set in stone at least from what we know at this point. But let's say it's the companies for kicks. Let's imagine that that's what it is. Yeah it is. It is an apple car that hyundai produces a lot of parts for the way that works with lots of other companies to produce other hardware for apple. I mean that that's the loftiest kind of goal that we're looking at and maybe that would take till twenty twenty eight at you know if if apple was lucky. I think it probably has more to do with like you said shannon not that you know android auto wouldn't still be prevalent in a lot of passenger vehicles but maybe at some sort of it's a special relationship. It's it's a special kind of os inside a car that is supposed to you. Know i don't know move some merch because What apple is providing on the software side is is. Is that much more interesting. I really don't know if you look at that. Bloomberg article mark gurman sources are saying that Tesla people that apple has hired are working on things like interior exterior. Drive train stereo. Desist the kinds of things. You need when you're building a car not carting a software platform so then the question becomes is it the apple car period. Maybe hendaye makes it. Maybe somebody else makes it. And you know they'll figure out how to distribute it or is it the apple car by sunday and you go to hyundai dealership to buy it the way you went to an. At and t. store to an apple iphone but it's really apples car in cooperation with sunday. Are there multiple partners. I mean that's all the kind of stuff we're waiting to see but it really does feel like we have gotten to the point where this is no longer just yeah. They're working on project titan. They don't know what they're gonna do to. They have an idea. It's more than just software and they're working out the details. Maybe they don't even know that yet. Well i'm interested to see what happens but we also have some other news. Security among the systems impacted by the solar winds attack is the electron filing system. Used by the us federal courts at investigation is underway to determine if confidentiality of documents filed with the courts was breached and as a result starting wednesday confidential documents filed with the courts will be stored on standalone systems. Not uploaded big difference so these are documents sealed from public access because they contain sensitive information like investigative techniques identities of informants and a lot more other. Us federal agencies affected included the justice department the state treasury and energy departments as well solar winds has engaged. The krebs stay most security consulting group to help deal with this attack. That firm was formed by alex. Stamos the former chief security officer at yahoo and facebook and chris krebs the former director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency or sisa. So krebs was fired last month. By the president after finding no evidence of with voting systems in the twenty twenty election. Yeah stamos first of all brilliant for those two to team up and smart for solar winds to engage them for what they say is Helping with transparency with companies that are affected But this we we are not done finding out how bad this is. There are reports that there may have been other ways that this whoever is behind this intruded beyond just solar winds. They're finding evidence of that. They have not been able to root out the people that got into this vulnerability from all systems yet. They're still in there in a lot of cases. And you know this. This kind of confidential information is exactly the kind of thing you fear that someone would get intruding into a government system informants investigative techniques that you can now learn from to evade being prosecuted or caught yourself. That's that's crown jewel type stuff it's it's very interesting. In fact krebs spoke on record saying that it could potentially take years to figure out how deep the solar winds attack actually went and how many different kinds of infrastructure. You know brands and everything that it might have affected so this is not something. That's going to die anytime soon. I'm glad that they are reaching out. Craig's and stay most though because that i agree with you tom. It's excellent. excellent team roku made a few interesting announcements roku says. Npd data shows that the roku s was the top selling smarter operating system in the us and canada in two thousand twenty thirty one percent market share in canada. Thirty eight percent in the united states That's pushed the samsung's tizen number two. At least we don't actually know samsung's ties and was number. One in two thousand nineteen also announced a wireless soundbar reference design that uses wifi for its roku. Tv ready program remember. Last year roku announced the program which had a designed for wired. Sound bars. The program includes tcl. Pokemon on an element has just announced. They'll join as well with two point. Two point one ready sound bars roku tv ready to expand internationally later this year as well. But here's the big roku news roku has agreed to acquire exclusive global distribution rights to more than seventy five Shows documentaries some of which had not been released before qube shutdown. So there'll be some new stuff that nobody's ever seen after their exclusivity deal expires. That'll happen in a bit more than a year. Depending on the show roku will still have the rights to show the content just not exclusively until thousand twenty seven the content will have to be presented in original increments of ten minutes or less. The deal doesn't let them stitch it altogether. The content will be added to the more than forty thousand movies and tv shows already available. In the roku channel shows include from Be anyway punked. Murder house. Flip and dummy which stars anna kendrick. I never watched the new punk. I heard had its moments. The whole qube thing. It's really interesting to me because it was sort of like. It crashed and burned so quickly. And there's a lotta shot and friday around folks in the industry about it. And i think that's not because qube was doing things wrong. It was because the company had raised so much money time. Because you know. They had meg whitman. Jeffrey katzenberg who are you know. Heavy hitters and there was a little bit of like you are being to embassies and therefore you shall fail. The company did fail and the idea that some creators will have a new life on another platform shows. That just don't even saw but people still worked on. And maybe you're really good. I think this this makes a lotta sense and good for roku to get exclusivity for at least a few years so does roku have to wait at all in order to start showing this content or can happen immediately. I don't know when the start date. Whenever the deal is you know goes into effect. Then they'll immediately be able to to show it so you know within a month or so it would be my guess anyway but no they. They don't have once. The deal is actually in effect. They don't have to wait. What's going on here. is that the baby. Production companies own the rights to their own stuff but they have a two year exclusive for each one of their shows with qube and those two year exclusives are now being transferred to roku so roka will be able to have the exclusive for the remainder of whatever. The period was with quick. That's why it's more a year. Exclusively goes away then they still have the right to show it until twenty twenty seven but the production companies that made it can now start shopping at around to other places as well so the production companies do hold the content and remember this is just the content. Qube is still in a over. Its turnstile technology which is holding it up from selling its technology and i would expect once it resolves that lawsuit should resolve it in a way that they still hold their technology. They'll sell that to so this isn't the last you're going to hear could be selling off a part of it. I would imagine. Gotcha yeah that whole. The whole technology part of qube was again was an ambitious thing that was released at a very inopportune time in twenty twenty when everyone was like. We're just sitting at home like we don't need this like mobile phone technology. It's like cool that you can shifted around but you can't even cast thing. I mean the company did fix that pretty soon after allow about she was just. I mean it's just did. The timing couldn't be worse but that technology when you think of it in a variety of other form factors such as monitors that swivel talked about some of those yesterday. I don't know that qube or tiktok or snapchat or all of the stuff where we're like. Oh yeah that's the. That's the portrait view. Rather than landscape view. That works for certain apps is is is all that this is four. I think there's more to it So we'll see what happens and there's patents and things that are always valuable because you can use those to extract some concessions and money and stuff. So yeah expect that all to come join the conversation in our discord which you can join by linking to a patriotic. Can't get in there and talk about your favourite qube shows with all the other discord folks. Just lincoln to your patriotic out at patriotair dot com slash. Dpd s all right shannon. How do you clone a security key. Well i i will say please do not stop using your security keys because of this story i will explain it. Researchers from ninja lab published a paper on thursday showing how you could clone a google tightened security gate this is a two factor authentication key which is very similar to a you. Be key that you have to plug in or tap in order to access an account after putting in your username or your password credentials. Were both so in order to pull off the clone. You would need physical access to the key for about ten hours. Sometimes a minimum of ten hours just kind of depends on how good you are at this. About twelve thousand dollars worth of equipment physical equipment and custom software and some advanced skills in electrical engineering and cryptography as well. So you have to remove the chip and then take measurements of it at a being registered on each account that you went to attack the measurements observe electro magnetic radiation as the chip generates digital signatures that let the attacker slowly deduced the private key so measurements take about six hours per account. That's not including taking apart. The original tighten security key putting it back together. Then you need to seal the chip back into its case. You also need the targets password in order for this to work. So the reason it works is because of vulnerability in the security hardware chip residing within the google titan key and that is called an eighty seven hundred x by this company called. Xp if it's exploited in attacker could grab the elliptic curve cryptographic private key for the account and the same chip is actually found in other two factor. Authentication physical tokens as well like There's a ubiquity that it's found in but chances of attack or very very minimal given the scope of the attack so if you do all of this without the target ever noticing then they would never duplicated key but again given the scope given how much it costs and everything behind the scenes probably when it happened to normal user. The point of these security keys being the best way to use For two factor. Is that you can't even get at your private key right you. Nobody has to be able to get in there like the chip. Just doesn't make it available so the fact that they were able to get in there and get it is huge. You know the fact that they were able to do this is significant. But i mean if you're not a target of an advanced persistent threat. You don't need to worry about this. No one's going to go to the trouble to do this. And even if you're a target. I would guess shannon that most of them probably would be able to notice if someone took their key for ten hours or more you. You likely likely would especially since a lot of people with hardware tokens like google titan will stick them on a on their keychain for example like with their house keys or whatever wherever they keep all those personal physical devices that they don't want lost or stolen they keep them all on engaging so if somebody was to take one of these out of your purse out of your gym locker wherever it might be and remove it for like ten hour street minimum. You would likely know that this would have happened. the neat thing about these chips inside of these. Google tightened security keys. And any other cryptographic hardware tokens like these is that. Even the manufacturer doesn't know the private key so the fact that they were able to find vulnerability on these specific chipsets is really interesting. And i think that's the important bit of that. Is is even though the google titan like the end all be all of really excellent. Two factor authentication. There's always. The potential that vulnerabilities can be found. So i'm happy that this research came out. It's so fascinating and it's so interesting in this means that an x. p. and other security chipset manufacturers that sell these teeny tiny chips to google or whoever the company might be They can build on this. They can research and figure out what the next version of their chipset needs to entail in order to not be vulnerable to this again in the future. Yeah i mean this is really a good security story right. We finally figured out because there's always a way right. We finally figured out the way you get the private key out of a security key and guess what it's really hard takes a long time and now that we know it we can make it even harder and hopefully you know push that barrier out even further and even if somebody did have time to do this and you didn't notice i was reading the paper because i'm a huge nerd and they go as far as using fuming fuming nitric acid in order to get like melt the epoxy off of the original google titan. How are you going to put that back together. In order for somebody to not notice like there's a lot of intricacies with this attack in order for it to actually be pulled off so chances are very very slim that somebody would be able to pull off so again as i said at the very beginning. Don't stop using your google tightened security key if you have one keep using it because chances are you would never be attacked with this. Just just know if you haven't seen it in ten hours look together strange. This is going to be in a movie though. I'm calling that shot right now. We're gonna we're gonna see this movie. Where like i hope so. Somebody goes into surgery and they take his key and they go out and do all this and they slip it back in because ten hours later. He wakes up from anesthesia on something like that. I just hope they talked to the researchers so they actually show it off right. Yeah Sony tv and audio announcements Starting with details for its own tv lineup. Sticking with lead ravi x four k and k. Tv's will support four k at one hundred twenty hertz variable refresh rate vr as well as a l l m low latency mode and e arc. These are all things that are important. If you've got a ps five now you've got sony. Tv they can go. That sony also has an improved a chip that is going to improve the picture and sound positioning. So it aligns with what you see on the screen. Sony's master series. Tv's will come with a sensor that adjusts white balanced immense. Your ambiente color temp. You don't have to do anything they'll just do it. Also an aluminum heat shield. That will make for brighter. All the sets will support. Hdmi two point one. Another big one for ps five dolby vision hdr angle tv. Sony also announced. It's three hundred sixty reality audio platform if you're not familiar with three hundred sixty degree audio places instruments and vocals in a virtual sound field around your head but using just the one speaker so you can do this in an amazon echo or google. Home sony will start streaming video with three sixty audio later this year. Starting with concert from zara larsson on january eleventh. And somebody's gonna make speakers that support this. It'll be may supported by other speakers as well. But sony is going to put out the are five thousand and three thousand They've got that dark cloth. Surface that all these speakers seem to have these days with either bronze or silver accents. Work with google and amazon assistance and can connect to select sony abroad via. Tv's as well as supporting wi fi bluetooth. Spotify connect in google cast. The speakers do automated calibration to the room. They're in donut. The press a button for that. Either and we'll simulate three hundred sixty degree audio for stereo tracks as well. The five thousand cost five hundred pounds or five hundred ninety nine euros no. Us price yet on the three thousand two hundred eighty pounds. Three hundred fifty nine euros. This seems this. Seems like it's shaping up to be one of the trends. Is this the sort of three hundred sixty degree audio while you're listening to your black bank and it's just one speaker or potentially a couple of speakers ativan. Maybe yeah yeah already supported. Yeah there's less of kind of like What do i have to do. Five point one surround or at least get a couple of speakers and make them a stereo pair type thing. I really haven't heard this in. I don't know. I used to hang out at magnolia at best. Buy all the time. And just like geek out on stuff like this. of course. this technology wasn't around at the time. But it's really come on. Let's turn on some stuff and see the speakers. Do it works well. Then that's awesome my first reaction because i got rid of my kind of pants speakers some years ago because friend of mine needed them more than i did and i didn't have room in my apartment but i miss that i'm also an a. A permanent now that's smaller and kind of has a lot of weird angles and i find audio bounces off walls in wiz. That wouldn't if it was more of a square box broom So i'm not sure that i'm the perfect target market for this. You're the you're the one puts this through its paces and sees if it really works. Yeah if i could actually work as advertised again with some funny angles in a big old frame. Then i'm i'm really into this and i've always been. I don't have a sony. Tv currently sorry zony. But i was abroad. Bravi a person for years. Nears i think what the new bravi line is coming out with. Looks really nice. And i mean not totally in the market for a new tv. But i like the fact that i might get a new sony again paired up with a sony speaker. You got three six. Yeah already got all this stuff. It's going to be a messed anyway. You slice it. But i like. I like this to be sixty reality audio platform. What would you have set up in your house. I was straight up going to mention sonos because if if it doesn't have the connectability to be able to work with all of my other platforms that currently have invested in. Then chances are i wouldn't buy it. So i do have sono says in my house and i do have some issues connecting those with other speakers in the household to like like my google hub for example so the fact that this works with google and amazon assistant the speaker specifically The audio speakers. I think that's pretty cool. I like that. They are bringing that in and i am interested because i do live in a household. That has very high ceilings. How this would work in that kind of environment. So yeah. I'm very interested in the audio aspect. Well you might also be interested in what colour has come out. Oh yes the folks who make things like toilets and and sinks and lots of appliances however. Been a real. Cas mainstay for the last few years for some cool innovations and this year is no different. Even though we're not in vegas koehler has a new smart bathtub called the stillness bath. That lets you use an app or use your voice using google or amazon's assistance to fill up the water or perhaps set the mood by changing the color of the lights around the tab or even add some fog. You know you wanna kind of pretend like you're in the then present routines also turn on features in a certain orders if you wanna get kind of creative. that's cool. Yeah the certain amount of limitations with the base model and the base model is not cheap so temperature and depth control models alone will cost around eight thousand six hundred ninety eight dollars. That's right it's almost nine thousand dollar bathtub. If you want the experience tower that lets you activate fog and aromatherapy. That will run you just over ten thousand dollars. Both models are available in july. There are real things and if you want the version with lights and floor grades for overflow fifteen thousand nine hundred ninety eight dollars available. This october signed me off. I won't be buying those. Nope not even a little bit but we could have taken a bath at s in the new in the pre show roger was like. Why would you want fog. It's like this. Why does anyone want to be on. Yeah racist luxury suites in hotels for sure as well as apple's houses sure yeah something well. Yeah it's it's that like hey look at what my bath can do people go. Wow very fancy and then you know ten years from now will be like remember when we thought it was fancied to talk to your bathtub so that it would start filling up without touching it but Yeah it's it's somewhat silly because of the price. But i'm not really much of a bath person but they do look very nice all right. Let's check out the mail bag but ads do it. Nick wrote in with a pronunciation. Ramps own neck. You are not alone he says. Ac's rog is an initial list. Because it's our og like fbi or cia. People say ron yet. They're lower end gaming brand tough not initially them. It's an acronym like scuba or produce you f but pronounced off. It's like ace's can't make up their name minds. Then there's strict which is our subbrand strikes as a word it's a completely nonsensical made up word. But it's a word and you pronounce it as such nick as honestly as somebody. That buys a lot of hardware. Because i've rarely had a bad experience with them over the past twenty years. I am baffled by some branding decisions. The one the bugs me. The most is the strict subbrand. Sometimes acis makes the tricks products. The high end product in the product stock yet other times. It's a mid range product. Would it be too much to ask for consistency and product. Branding twenty twenty one. Yes apparently apparently we feel your pain. Nick i love the dichter's just like i just need to vent you guys. Let me let me let me get this up. Just we appreciate that. Yeah i mean i. i'm with you nick.

"When it comes to computers the actual hardware and software only account for part of the full story. Now don't get me wrong here. Hardware is a really interesting and important. Part of what i cover. The same thing goes for software. As i always say harbor is actually pretty useless without some kind of code to run on it. But you can't fully explain the history of computing with just blinking lights and stacks of code. That would turn to a pretty dry story pretty quickly. You need to also look the messy part. That's the human element and for me. This is problems usually crop up. You see there's a certain kind of person that's drawn to computers enthusiasts programmers engineers and researchers all seem to have at least somewhat similar motivations. Why do they work with computers. Well computers are just neat by us. Solve problems is fun and finding inventive solutions is rewarding in itself. And how this kind of drive is really great for the discipline at large. It can also make researching the development of technologies. A little bit annoying. Why did can thomas. And dennis ritchie developed a unix. Why did text based adventure game start to show up all over the place sure. They're really good technical reasons but partly it was just for the fun of the project. Once mass produced computers introduced more people into the fold these kinds of traits and motivations they kind of become omnipresent at least to appoint those working on large shared mainframes quickly turned from teams of researchers into groups of friends and once networking starts to link of computers. These groups of friends form into a larger community. So we start to see a large group of people with shared ideals practices beliefs and a common cause at their core. Now that sounds an awful lot like a culture. This is usually called hacker culture and like any other culture. It has its own folklore. Welcome back to advocate of computing. I'm your host sean. Hannity and this is episode forty-six hacker folklore now. This is a project that i've actually had in the works for a while. So i'm especially excited to get to share it with you. All today's episode is going to be a little bit different from my normal fair. I'm not going to be talking a specific computer technology or even really a series of events. Instead we're taking a detour through some fun. And i think pretty funny territory. We're going to be looking at a section of the jargon file in the print edition. It's appendix a hacker folklore. Hopefully you'll excuse me but you're in for a bit of a long preamble here. I put together a mini episode on the jargon file way back in the archive mainly talking about the files origins and its history in short. It's a dictionary of terms used by the more computer savvy folk. The file began in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy s at mit artificial intelligence lab and it spread pretty quickly from their versions moved from coast to coast over the arpanet and nine hundred eighty three. The first print edition was published as the hacker's dictionary. This isn't really a dry treaties. On terms and technical language jar file is a lot closer to really humor. The files mixture of some pretty low brow jokes jabs at corporate employees and actually useful definitions for its creators. The jargon file was fun pastime with an actual purpose it captures a slightly filtered view of the culture around computers in the seventies eighties and the latest version. V four point four point seven up on cat be dot. Org was last updated in two thousand and three. Well it makes the jargon file so important is that it preserves something normally hard to come by. There's been endless. Amounts of ink spilled over big events in the history of computing figures. Like bill gates. Steve jobs have multiple biographies covering their life. Stories to that all the actual hardware and software lying around and it's actually somewhat easy to chronicle all the big events all these things are essentially preserved. So you don't really have to go hunting for that. One scrap of a note. The bill gates wrote in the mid eighties. Instead you can just go grab both the focuses on microsoft in that era when we get below that high level of visibility. We can run into some serious issues sourcing. Computer science as a field wasn't developed by a handful of people it took masses but those masses aren't usually chronicled in the same way as high profile figures. Most researchers donate their notebooks to university. Archives user group minutes were usually just thrown in the recycling bin and online forums and messages. Don't really start being relevant until much more recently. This means that trying to put together less well known stories can get kind of difficult and a lotta. The culture around these stories is either lost or really really difficult to find information on. That's where the jargon file sweeps into saved the day well at least somewhat. It gives a picture of the hacker subculture during a pretty wide span of time. I guess this may be a good time to actually address the terminology here. Hacker didn't originally mean some malicious actor that broke into computers although breaking and entering was sometimes part of it. The jar file has a few different definitions for the term. I think the most relevant here is quote a person who enjoys exploring the details of programmable systems and how to stretch their capabilities as opposed to most users who prefer to learn only the minimum necessary r f c one three nine to the internet users. Glossary usefully amplifies this as a person who delights in having an intimate understanding of the internal workings of a system
Apple WWDC 2021: Will It Be Virtual & Free?
"I would have to guess that w. wdc twenty twenty. one is almost certainly going to be a virtual event like last year's and will but let's flash forward another year like blood. And i think it's very realistic to think that. By june twenty twenty two cova is past tense and we remember that is w. w. permanently a virtual event. I don't know how to predict on that. Because i could see it both ways. I think there's aspects of the in person experience that are irreplaceable from my personal perspective in the media and getting to talk to people In person i mean. I'll still talk to apple people in person. they'll still have press events. The keynote may well involve be more like a traditional in a virtual post covid world might be exactly like the iphone events where the only people who attend in person are the media right. And it's at the steve jobs theater in you know with three or four hundred people. Instead of five thousand people so that aspect of it. I'm sure we'll still be you know. Replicated post covid. There's so many people in the developer community who i know and it both at a personal level but at a professional level where i i hear things i learned things you know it. There's certain aspects of real world interaction and trust that. Don't happen without being real. And i would miss that. I still remember when i seven was announced. Me you guy. English lorne brickner and a couple you know. Gpu savvy friends. Standing in a bar trying to figure out how they were injecting all the transparency and calcium blur into the system. You just can't do that. Virtually i do remember that. My guess is pretty bad but yes guy trying to figure that out pretty good. Yeah yeah and watching. Learn like move his thumb down to. Yes yeah i don't know what do you think what's your gut feeling on long you know. What would apple's thinking about this. I think and i say. I think but i also hope because you know someone newly indy. The idea of having you know. I still have no idea how to save. Spent any of this travel stuff myself. They don't have a giant media company. Pain for everything anymore but i think a hybrid model just given how good the production value was like. I went back and looked at some previous events and the stage. Experience is great but it doesn't look as visually stunning as what they did this year. And i'm sure we'll get into how they progressed and got better and better at the events over time but they really started upping the ante on how you could do these sorts of things as stream only events but i think for the consumer stuff it still makes a lot of sense to present that and for developers because five thousand isn't out of the millions of apple developers. The amount they can reach. A virtual event is significantly higher. That i wouldn't be surprised if they have a hybrid model where people do come gather for things that they really need to like for brand new products that require hands on where they want to give you a tour of the audio facility or eventually maybe a our facility or something. I think that'll make sense to do in person. But i think as much as possible if they can project this sort of stuff to the world. It's it just invites everyone into like a really first class experience.
An African-Centred Approach To Mental Health
"One and welcomes mentally os fat and stay on chatting to dr erica mcginnis she's a chartered clinical psychologist and the director of nubia wellness and healing. We're going to be talking about. An african centered approach mental health. So can you tell us a bit about your work festival. And what is an african sentence approach to mental health mcnicoll psychologists and i trained in two thousand one environment. You're centric approaches. But as i continued with monterrey realized that a lot of the things i was experiencing some of the clients who have african ancestry back brown's exposing the m. The approaches that was about wasn't really helping to understand their problems and to find ways of engaging them so i got involved in african psychology. Jay With the best of african culture and in conjunction with a modern day culture and to kind of find ways to improve wellbeing. So how does that does that. Work in practice will for example. I calls sofas in the presence but lockdown One of the things. We use things of african culture intensive using music as a wave engaging people using african cultural principles like libations pouring libations. I'm bringing your ancestors into your everyday space calling out their names thanking them for the gifts that even heritage from them and understanding of south in the concept of trying to continue the genius that on incessant so my parents came from jamaica and the came to england with a particular purpose in mind and afternoon. See myself how can i continue that peppis. I'm actuate an interpreter in a modern day. Context is african psychologists you've experienced as patients as well or it's purely as a psychologist. I received some supervision from an african sunset responsive and that was really helpful at a time. Mark career intensive helping develop my own sense of well being connected to find the best african culture and because at the time i was very much denying my african ancestry and i really thought that appreciating that helped me to be able to cut up like developer confidence in myself. But i haven't actually eight spending stem thelma pay. I'm from that perspective myself. Now can you tell me a bit. More about spam. How different to the european approach and also how the difference So even yes. Civic until an african centered. Perspective is famous spiritually based. So you're looking at your relationship with south relationship with your ancestors your relationship with the creator. All universal got whatever concept that you have. Spiritually based is strength space in terms of seeing that the environment that women can often contribute to the difficult we find ourselves in as opposed to it being inherent in oils. So we look at things. Such is the influence of the transatlantic slave trade and shuttle enslavement. And how got can cause trauma and which is passed down through. The generations even gets into generational trauma additive that everyday form of living wild black shopping bar black seeing black people being mistreated such as a flight. George when you look at the newspapers on the over television which can reach formalizes the game and it kind of like m. involves some of those aspects of our being and the lived experiences of black people particular mental health issues that you think is particularly people with whether exhaust repression anything in particular or is it across the board. I think it's puck across the board really because it really talks about a mind. Temptation of as it talks about self knowledge knowledge of south being really fundamental to wellness.
