I could see the accident on the right shoulder and the left lane is definitely blocked. This is the injury accident. Westbound. 70 per Muto. Traffic is jammed approaching Lucas Hunt. So that now because that's all jammed up there. It's just a little slow past our city on westbound 70 making way out to the Blanchet Bridge, Westbound 70 at the Highway Z exit on the exit ramp.

Ah, it's actually eastbound, 44. That's just west of 100 Washington and traffics jam back to about 50. Looks like the incident may be cleared because traffic is improving, but it's still a pretty lengthy back up. Like I said, it's a jam is just not quite as bad as it was.

A Look at Police Body Cam Technologies, and Where They Fall Short
"The nationwide protests over the killing of George, Floyd brought many things alight from racial inequality to police brutality. One issue that's come back to the forefront is whether or not police body cams are effective tools to hold officers accountable. I'm Roger Jiang. This is your daily charge with me senior video producer Butch Kerry who was a video out today discussing this various you welcome bridget. Thanks for having me. So body cameras really spiked popularity with the police back between fourteen talk about what really sparked this move answer where we are today yeah. It really began with Michael Brown because when he was shot by a white police officer in two thousand fourteen, there was no video footage to show it happened in the officer didn't face charges. So the family came out and Please request thought you know there's a movement that police can wear body cameras that was pushed even further by President Obama also saying that this should be the change for the future. Then there were federal grant setup to help departments pay for them. So you did have this big increase in police departments trying to help their relationship with the community and saying, Hey, we're going to have body cameras now but I mean that was present fourteen and I feel like we're still at the same place which. Is why I wanted to do this report and look into how do they work and why are we still at the same place and it really comes down to how different departments are using the cameras zero zillion talk a little bit about that and just to give our listeners a sense of how broadly there used. I, know you mentioned those grants to the Justice Department awarded place apartments in thirty states more than twenty three, million dollars for body Cam. So how many police officers actually use them? That the data right now, when you look at the statistics, it's looking like about half of our nation right now has officer some way or another obviously is hard to be exactly of small apartments, large departments but right now the idea looks like about half the country has law enforcement wearing some kind of camera or has tested out cameras some. In some way I, mean issues basic the you have officers wear cameras people will change their behavior when they know they're being recorded right there's more trust now when they're when there's a cameras more accountability these really lofty goals for one piece attack at there have been a few snags along the way. Of them being cost of storage because you have all these officers recording when they come into a situation every day. So figure, every officer has maybe three or four hours of recording everyday they have to store in the cloud. Well, how long are they storing that and how much is needing to be saved It's all different depending on every single up police department. So sometimes, it's months sometimes years and you're looking at costs in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. One department only had five police officers in the little town of Nebraska, and they were looking at something around fifteen grand. A year and this is like not folk is not feasible for every department to pay this because those those grants we talked about they don't cover ongoing storage costs. So some departments have been pulled out of using them because they don't see it's it's useful for them to be paying for it because the storage storage is definitely issued cost is an issue. These unforeseen costs are a real. Red Flag but bring it back to you know the ultimate idea that these cameras were supposed to bring accountability and to prove relations with the community was twenty and we're still protesting about police brutality Take things are worse than they ever are they have been. So what happened how did they fail to accomplish that goal? I wouldn't call them an outright failure, but it certainly is a failure in A. Couple of aspects one It goes back to how these tools are being used for one A officers have the ability for the most part right now to start and stop the recording on their own because they they really feel like you should have that kind of freedom. Do you really want a camera to be always turned on in every instance? No not when you're visiting someone at the hospital Having a private conversation or just you know having your lunch that said, what are the punishments if you don't hit that record button when you were supposed to or finding that there isn't a lot of incentive to do the right thing or I should say you know punishment if you miss a recording when you're supposed to at least that's what a lot of the researchers I talked to were saying that. If if you don't activate your camera, you know what's the consequence for that That's that's one area that's missing. Other area that that's missing is how can the public get access to this footage to be accountable? You countless studies have been done, and most recently they looked at all the studies and said, all right. What's the data we're seeing that there are fewer complaints against police officers. That's a good thing. We're seeing that police officers have footage to say, Hey, look I was justified that this was a false complaint against me. Great cameras are showing the truth in different aspects but a cameras show every angle of the story that happened and the cameras only as good as being able to release the footage. So some researchers I talked to said. We WanNA. See more data on can the public access when they want to receive some change now in New York City the mayor said that anytime now there is an incident where someone killed or seriously injured they will release footage but for a while there was this law that said, they don't have to release anything. We'll as a camera that you know. So so that's really the problem. I it comes down to not having a uniformed a set of rules or standards on win. This footage can be released in how it can be used. To the point of consistency, you mentioned New York City Mayor de Blasio a changes law he's fairly alone. He's he's sort of serve an isolated case right? Because the the rules are very greatly I don't think there's any kind of national mandate to be more transparent about when they released this footage ride, we're starting to see changes win the public points, their camera at a situation and out that officers didn't have their cameras turned on over in. Louisville when there was a shooting at the restaurant owner those officers who did not activate. Their cameras were put on leave a might my questions are okay they're put on leave but they're suspended. Where are you know the the more serious deterrence there? You know what's happening people are losing their jobs over it out win when government realized that the spotlight's on them you know but we have to look at what's going on in terms of using them. There is some technology though that is kind of starting to change that part of it like having a camera automatically turn on when it senses something's happening it could be win a Taser guns pulled out of a holster. It could be also not so serious like when it detects a police vehicle going at a certain speed or detects other kind of check marks author software so that Way If an officer is in the heat of the moment and can't remember to turn on their camera. It does it for them There's also talk about live streaming. So some of the cameras are able to have a superior back at home base tap into what that officer is seen in real time. That is a great advantage. When something serious is going down, they get a real time feedback. But. It's something that they're also can be push back with with police unions going wait a second I don't want someone seeing what I'm doing all times I don't live streaming only a few departments really have started to use livestream I. Think Cincinnati was one of the first that used the teaser brand of version of livestream on their cameras, and that was just February so very early for that technology but there's a lot of talk about that.
Fresh update on "roger" discussed on All Things Considered
"I'm Stacy Vanek Smith in New York, and I'm Ari Shapiro in Washington. It is still primary season and in yesterday's contests, Progressive Democrats scored two high profile victories. While a conservative aligned with President Trump lost to a more mainstream Republican in Kansas. NPR's Susan Davis is here to sort through results and tell us what this might signal about November Hae Soo Let's start with the Republican contest where former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach lost the GOP Senate primary to Congressman Roger Marshall Today you wrote that this is a win for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. How so? Well. Marshall was McConnell's preferred candidate. The Senate Leadership Fund, which is an outside Superpac align with the leader spent over $2 million to help Marshall win. McConnell, like many Republicans believed that if Kobach had won, he would've tanked the party's chances of holding to the on to that seat in November and very likely could have taken the majority down with it. A word of caution here, though, Marshal is still not a sure bet. There's still interesting things happening in Kansas, and that race looks like it could still be competitive. And I've talked to GOP strategist who say it's gonna You know they're going to keep investing in Kansas to keep it in their column, but ultimately this is a seat that will be harder for Democrats to win and the battle for the Senate carries on. And then let's shift to what happened in the Democratic Party yesterday, which was just remarkable in the primary in the ST Louis area. In Missouri, incumbent Congressman William Lacy Clay lost to progressive black lives matter activists Corey Bush, who ran to his left Incumbents so rarely lose primaries. How did she pull it off? Well, this was first a rematch. She ran and lost against clay and 2018 by 20 points. It wasn't even close to years ago, especially in a year that was really friendly to Democratic women candidates. She ran again Big comeback. Beat him on Tuesday by three points. It is part of a trend that we've seen playing out this year in House Democratic primaries, where progressives, especially black progressives, are getting much more traction among Democratic voters than they had in the past. We saw that happen in New York, where three young black male progressive candidates won and contested primaries and yet another example of where an incumbent was defeated. With Elliot Engel. In this specific case, Clay was not only an incumbent. His family was a black political dynasty in Missouri. His father represented the seat before he did for three decades. Yeah, the clay family is second only to the Dingle family in terms of long legacies in Congress and Beating an incumbent is probably the hardest thing you can do in politics. But this year, Clay is the seventh incumbent TTO lose. There have been four Republicans and now three Democrats, and that doesn't sound like a big number seven when you think there's 435 members of Congress, but it's a ton, Bloomberg analyst Greg Drew calculated that it's the most incumbents TTO lose in a non redistricting year. Since 1974. I've talked to Democrats a lot about this this cycle and they point to a couple of factors. They say the pandemic is just really challenging the way voters think of government and how they want it in their lives. Of course, the racial justice protests that have come from the at following the death of George Floyd have really had a political impact here. Bush in this case, she's a black woman. She's a well known local activists She started in activism during the Ferguson protests back in 2014. And this was just her right moment. She was the right candidate at the right time in the right district. So when you pull back and look at these primary upsets, does it suggest that the Democratic Party as a whole is shifting to the left? You know it's complicated because Democrats have the majority because they were able to win in swing seats with moderate district. That's where the party needs to win Tohave a majority, but The's progressive candidates are winning and very safe Democratic seats. There aren't in contention in November, and it is definitely emboldening the progressive wing of the party that sees itself is the rising force. Where do you see that in action? If you look at another win Tuesday, Michigan congressman receded to leave but better known as one of the members of the so called squad, she had a primary challenge from the center, and she was able to beat that back by 30 points. I think we're just seeing that the people that are losing and primary challenges are being replaced by people in large part who are more ideological than they are. And it's further evidence of something that we know is true about Congress in each passing election. It is getting more and more polarized. That is NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis. Thanks, you The Trump Administration has dubbed it operation warp speed. That is the initiative to develop a Corona virus vaccine. With more than 156,000 Americans dead and a presidential election months away. The president is eager to highlight progress on Fox and friends this morning, President Trump said the development of a vaccine for covert 19 is making good progress. I've streamlined the process, this would have taken 34 years to be where we are right now. And we're gonna have one. I believe long before the end of the year. Our next guest has insight into both the science and the politics behind the race to find a covert vaccine. He is Dr Paul Offit, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, who serves on a panel advising the Food and Drug Administration on whether to recommend if a vaccine is licensed. Dr Offit. Welcome to the program. Thank you. So first off, Let me just ask you to comment on the president's assessment on Fox and friends. What did you think of it? Well, in part, he's right. I mean, the administration basically sped up this process by taking the risk out of making a vaccine for pharmaceutical companies. Typically, pharmaceutical companies go slowly from Pre clinical trials to phase one dose ranging trials to phase two trials, which are involved hundreds of people to face three trials, which involved tens of thousands of people and each step. It cost log..
Google Pixel 4a Has Ushered in a New Era of Excellent Cheap Phones
"Google announced the Pixel for a phone with a blog post with some with superbeets. The Pixel for a has a five point eight, one, inch, twenty, three, forty by ten, eighty, sixty hertz led display snapdragon at seven thirty g system on a chip six gigs of Ram one, hundred, twenty, eight gibbs gigs of S. two point one storage and a thirty one, Forty Mil. Battery a single twelve megapixel camera on the back and an eight megapixel camera on the front and a USB. USB Port and a headphone Jack as well phone. Wow. Know. What about that? He has a bigger battery than the four. A smaller top vessels well, doesn't the depth sensing required for air gestures consensus it's nicer looking than the four. It's not as powerful as the iphone se or one plus words, but it's also about one hundred dollars cheaper the Pixel for as available for preorder. Now, for three, hundred, Fifty Dollars Shipping on August twentieth. One more thing at the end of its post announcing the four, a Google also announced it with Havi Five G. version of the quarry for four, hundred, ninety, nine dollars and a five G. Pixel five coming this autumn. Yes. So the only feature, we didn't know because of the long delay was everybody thought this was going to come out in May and almost every detail about it leaked over the intervening months was the price and the price seems to be everyone's favourite feature at three, hundred, fifty dollars. It's one hundred dollars exactly cheaper than the one plus Nord, it's about fifty to one hundred, fifty dollars cheaper than the iphone e depending on what model you're talking about. It's quite a bit cheaper than other mid range phones as well but then Google goes and undermines or as some call it Osbourne's itself. By announcing, it will have a five G. version of the out in the autumn almost like saying don't buy yet. We're GONNA have a version with five G. also pixel five, which we kind of knew that that one's less than undermining but the version of the four, al cost more cost four, hundred, ninety, nine dollars. So if you're into that three, hundred, fifty dollars price point I guess maybe you don't wait for the. Five G. Because you're like five won't be widespread for a few years anyway. But I don't know that it seems like Google just wanted to get this out there and say look okay, we made it. It was a pain maybe they're not making as many of them as they had wanted in. So they're not pushing it as hard. I don't know but it's an odd launch for something that for for people who want to. Mind their mind. Their pennies is a very attractive phone. It is that said, the timing is curious as you mentioned I mean listen a five hundred dollar phone. A lot of people are like, oh, that sounds great I mean that's not even really expensive based on you know what a flagship phone will run you these days it kind of feels like to me that. There is some supply chain issues going on here Google's leg at just just released. And like sell for real cheap and you know, let's move the merch. and. Then we've got we've got other stuff going on this to push so hard since we didn't make as many of them kind. You're Kinda right it kind of feels like that. Yeah. The one thing and Roger I. Don't know if you want to weigh in on this for people who want the bargain price three, hundred, fifty dollars very attractive it's not very future-proof. That's not dragging seven thirty is not the seven sixty it's not even the best mid level snapdragon processor it obviously doesn't have five G. I mean we you end up spending more because you'll have to replace the sooner. I would say that for a lot of people like, for example, my wife, she wouldn't use a lot of the additional features. She just needs a phone that does all the basic does the context does a photos I can share through instagram or facebook. The only problem with her phone is it's no longer being supported right? It's a, it's a five year old one plus three and so it works great but it just it has no, no longer has any updates for security and all available. APSO having something like this also means that you know you get a new phone that's inexpensive but it's also part of the cold Google we strip it down to the bare essentials. There's no bloat wear that's added and it does what it does like eighty percent of what most people do on the phone. Yeah and if she still rocking a one plus three, this processor will probably be fine for her. She's going to be doing heavily intense things would use the processor. So yeah, that makes sense.

Working, Making, Creating in Public and Private
"Hi Everyone. Welcome to the. podcast I'M SUNOL and I'm super excited to do one of our special book launch episodes for the new book coming out just this week working in public the making and maintenance of open source software by Nadia Ball and published by Stripe Press. The topic actually applies to all kinds of communities and groups coming together whether it's an open source project, our initiative of Department in a company, a club or a special interest group even group of friends and family because it's all about how people come. Together to coordinate and collaborate around some shared interest or activity whether participatory or not whether code or content, and so one theme. We also pull the threads on in this episode is about how the learnings of open source communities do and don't apply to the passion economy and create our communities as well. Nadia has long been immersed in studying the health of communities including getting funding from the Ford Foundation to study open source then worked at hub in developer experience then did research at protocol labs. And is now focused on writer experience at sub stack for longtime listeners of the six and Z podcast I've actually had her on the show years ago along with Michael Rogers our protocol labs than of the No jazz foundation where we talked about the changing culture of open source, you can find that episode on our site, but in this wide ranging hallway style episode Nadia, and I cover everything from types of communities, social networks, and the evolution of being online and ironically while the book is. Called working in public we also talk about the emergence of private spaces as well as the tragedy of Big Public Commons and how to counter the tragedy of comments which is why I believe everyone should read this book because it's a dirt of literature out there for the era of President Online collaboration creation and consumption that we're in we end with some practical advice for community managers, platforms and leaders, but we begin by defining open source in this context with a really useful taxonomy for categorizing communities. Earlier early was like I really hate this term and I just wish we gotta have something else like public software whatever. Love that I love it too. Unfortunately, it's pretty hard to change terms that everyone. On so I know this firsthand. Yeah. I mean I personally find the term kind of intimidating and it doesn't sound exciting when I say the term open source but it really does just referred to the distribution side of cook the existence of open source licenses made it very easy for anyone to use and modify and re Polish someone else's coat and put it in their own software but it doesn't really say a whole lot about how it was actually produced and so I made this analogy in the book, which is actually an analogy I borrowed from a friend Devon Devon Zuko, she still apple podcast for me I. Love Her yes, and says something like the term open source doesn't mean anything anymore than the term company does it's like, yes, we kind of get what a company is but there are so many different kinds of business models for different types companies with open source saying something as open source tells you a little bit about how the code might be used. That doesn't really say anything about how they're actually being made someone has to continue taking care of it. One of my favorite parts of the book is you actually outline different types of communities you call it classifying project types, but it's really to me how people are. Essentially social networks. Really. So why don't you break down that taxonomy and by the way the reason I'm asking is because when I think of the ARC in history of open source, the concept that comes to mind for everybody is that classic book by Eric Raymond, which is a cathedral and the bazaar and I think that framing has two long framed our discussion of open source and frankly any online community yet everyone sort of has maybe like General Santa W-what community is like others a bunch of members and their and organized around some common interests or reason for spending time together. In that highest level definition of community, there's an underlying assumption that all members are sort of similar than just the term members washes over the underlying dynamics between those different numbers and so what I started doing was saying, okay. There is a difference between at minimum, an open source people who are contributing to open source and people who are using stars. So I try to sort of separate out users and contributors and say, okay in some open source projects or as you said, really communities and general, some communities have high trigger and some communities have high user growth and then there's sort of like. Different permutations of that it's like federations, clubs, stadiums, and I forgot the fourth but toys in me what are so I think it's really useful to start with your taxonomy, a federations and onward. So federations are like the really big projects we might be thinking of like Lennox or. Where you have a lot of people who are contributing to the project and you have a lot of people that are using their project. But there are enough people that are working on the creation of that project that it does form his own sort of contributor community. By contrast, clubs have a lot of people who are participating in Chretien but they don't have as many people that are using it and said a product that's kind of focused on a niche interest. The example to give his Astro Pie, which is a Python Library for astrophysicists right? It's high contributor incredibly interested in that but very low user growth because how many people in the world are really interested in That intersection exactly and toys I sort of mentioned in passing in their police. Interesting thing to talk about that's where you have both low user and Lok contributor growth. So that might just be like a personal project them thinking around no one else is really looking at it. They're sort of waiting in the wings before they become one of the other types of communities

Miami - Florida Teenager Is Charged as ‘Mastermind’ of Twitter Hack
"Charges charges have have been been filed filed against against the the suspected suspected teenage teenage mastermind mastermind of of a a Twitter Twitter hack, hack, who who prosecutors prosecutors say say helped helped hijack hijack celebrity celebrity accounts accounts to to swindle swindle people people out out of of more more than than $100,000 $100,000 in a crypto currency scheme. See Nets Roger Cheng, the fact that the mastermind behind the massive Twitter hack is a 70 year old kid from Florida. Shows you that cyber attacks could come from anywhere. Give a high profile. The attack was infiltrating everyone from Milan must to Bill Gates and causing a shutdown of all verified accounts. There's likely a lot of pressure to identify who the person behind this was. To do so fast. Hillsboro, Florida Prosecutor Andy Warren. This individual's crimes were perpetrated using the names of famous people in celebrities, but they're not the primary victims.

Reports: Miami Marlins Getting Buses To Drive Infected Players, Personnel Back To Miami From Philadelphia
"This detail from Jesse Rogers quote news out of Philadelphia, where the Marlins have been holed up for over a week. Team is getting sleeper buses to take the infected players and personnel back in Miami. That's a long ride. Rest will stay, then had to Baltimore, New York in Buffalo for what's going to be a really long road trip and quote Sleeper buses. If you heard that phrase before The hell is a sleeper bus. The hell was that? And where are they getting them from their borrowing buses from rock bands that would normally be on tour right now? Are the infected Marlin's going to make that 1200 mile drive from Philadelphia to Miami on deaf leopards, boss Then the other players, the ones who have not tested positive. They're going to stay. Are they going to stay in Philadelphia? They go to Baltimore and New York and Buffalo. Is that the plan? That's how the first week of the NGOs, MLB season's going to end with sleeper buses and cancellations. Again. I'm not even asking this to be funny or clever, smart or wise.
Clean Beauty for the New Mom and Beyond with Gabriela Babila
"Are you. Are you. Thank you. Connect it with you For excited and actually ladies. I think we have I'm I'm La Native in I. Know You guys are too I? Think we have a connection. Might know I'm not sure if she's your sister I believe she's your sister, your younger sister to Kelly. Yes I. I graduated in two thousand ten in her out. I think you might know rec- on I'm like how and she's like. Well, you have to know her sister. I'm was like unannounced. Show me pictures she showed me pictures. She looks so familiar and I was like, oh my gosh, she went to college with us in. She's like, yeah, you you have to know that and I was like Oh my God this is a small world. So it's not even GonNa tell you what year I graduated but I graduated before. We are all we are all GOFFIN's here is it's a cool I. Know Love Palestine such. Great. I am an recently went to the beach down the street to the will rogers, and I just made me realize that Kim believe that that was high school I went to I'm like Oh my God how did I just take this betray granted I never even? I never went to the beach either so crazy and it was so close but I just always wanted to get out of Kelly because it was. It was like, yeah, which degree. You're older one. There's a lot of insulin lot village was so small then it wasn't really much to do so it was like. Always trying to. Rely on welcome to the show. So great to have you here. Thank you so much for sending over some of skincare routine some of the oil they add stretch mark oil that I received and the postpartum bath IDs phys called. Back fits bath there it is I can't wait to. Lying the bathtub after baby and just enjoy myself. But let's talk about your skincare line. What is what is Montana skincare? How'd you come up with the name? What products do offer tells about like this whole journey yeah, Abou- in how your mom inspired it. Yeah. So modern organics is basically a simple plan face care line devoted to mothers and just kind of help navigate distress that pregnancy in early maternity kind of brings with say if in fun ways to pamper yourself in your growing belly but just also that self care aspect of creating that moment for yourself, it really comes through in our products and I wanted to really create something that I felt was safe in fun for MOMS to enjoy. During pregnancy and after and when creating the brand in finding the name was actually a really unique coffee for me because I had to really look to motherhood my own mom and my daughter and my daughter's name is Netanyahu, which in Hebrew means God's gift and that really resonated with me really love them meaning so much because I gonNA lose women that at a young age I knew I wanted to be a mom it was just one of those. Things like I always wanted to be a mom you know I I saw myself being this working mother never a soccer mom but I just always Selena most likely Napoli herself with a Mile Yeah. Yeah. So when I became a mom at twenty six seeing age, my mom became a mother not planned at all. It was like just such a miracle for me and so the name really resonated with me and when I was looking to my daughter and my mom. Montana just came in mind because in Hebrew that means gift. So I really loved that it had that cultural background but that me that you know that I really wanted to share the knowledge support in a widely wanted to give mothers that nurturing safe fun way to pamper themselves. So just as the NAIPAUL's that kind of gift remains part of the mothers that we nourish. but yeah, that's that's kind of like a little bit of the background. How I came up with the name in stuff We're you know we're kind of early on you know I, have a stretch mark oil instance bath, and both of them kind of again always keeping in mind how I want to like. Create a skincare. That's really mother's. Centered I couldn't find anything when I was pregnant in terms of oils that was fast absorbing save accessible just easy to put on in a lot of my friends as well. Overall consensus was like, Oh, I am do not use oils I. Typically use creams and lotions because oils are just sticky there messy. They get all over my clothes so I really wanted to create something that was easy to put on, but that would hydrate your skin at all day in. You could just put it on, put your blouse on and get going
Panasonic Talks Energy Density
"Are at with that out of. Of the way, let's get sort of the main news here, and this is on Panasonic batteries. This is per a Reuters report, they spoke with Panasonic's of US v Batteries and they report quote Panasonic corporate plans to boost the energy density of twenty. One, seventy battery cells supplies to test link by twenty percent in five years and commercialize a cobalt free version in two to three years. The head of its US battery business said and quote they also report that Panasonic has already cut the content. Content to less than five percent of Nikko Cobalt, Aluminum Cathode, which by the way I have to apologize about because the other day in an episode, I, was saying nickel manganese cobalt. So embarrassing, but anyway, Rogers also says that Panasonic already with the twenty one, seventy cells has improved energy density by more than five percent, and while they declined to link the further twenty percent increase to Tesla's future vehicles, they did say that in September, they will start converting lions at gigafactory Nevada quote as. As a prepares to further boost the energy density of the cells Takemoto set and quote. So overall I think pretty exciting information here though a bit limited in terms of what we actually can learn from it. We don't know if the energy density here for his two volume metric or gravel metric, and we also don't really know if that increase in energy density will coincide with a reduction in cost as well. Though presumably, it would because if you make more energy dense battery cells you need. Need fewer battery cells to actually power the thing that you were trying to power with those batteries. So I think presumably cost beneficial as well, and unlikely that Panasonic would be pushing for something if there was not eventually going to be a cost benefit from it or at least be affordable enough to have a viable use case at scale I think it's also exciting that they have a cobalt free version in the works for two to three years from now, but the twenty percent energy density. Density improvement is a five year goal. So presumably, that twenty percent increase would be after extracting out all the cobalt from the process thinking about that twenty percent increase in energy density though over five years from compound annual growth rate perspective, that's three point, seven percent per year, which I think does sound about right looking at the historical progress. If we look at the Model S. from two, thousand, twelve to two, thousand, twenty, the range on the Model S. increased from two, hundred, sixty, five miles. Miles EPA all the way up to four hundred and two miles. So that's a five point, three percent compound annual growth rate in the available range. But of course, not all of that is attributable to the energy density of the battery cell. There's a lot of efficiencies within the powertrain and even things like wheels and tires that are contributing to that rate. So the improvement in energy density is likely below that though again, really it's improvement in energy density per cost. That is most important. Important looking forward, if that twenty percent improvement was applied to the range on the model three today and the Monterey today that would put the model three range at about three, hundred, eighty, six miles up from three, hundred, twenty, two miles if it were just a straight twenty percent increase and then similarly for the Mata, why it would go from three, hundred, sixty, miles, two, hundred and seventy nine. But again, that's just the increase from the battery cells that assumes no other progress throughout the rest. Rest of the powertrain or the battery pack or innovations that allow for reduction in weight of the vehicle, things like that. That will also, of course, happen over time. The other option that energy density improvements allow for is obviously to put the same amount of energy in less space or with less weight, which would improve the vehicle's efficiency. So even with the same energy, call it seventy, five kilowatt hours, the vehicle would travel farther because of that increased energy density and may be the range. Range go up to three, thirty or three forty with the same energy capacity. The overall point here is that better improvements are going to keep happening. Those improvements are going to open up a lot of different options for electric vehicle makers and Tesla's best positioned to capitalize on the Trent.
John McNamara, manager of ill-fated '86 Red Sox, dies at 88
"Linked with the 1980 16 has died with a story. McNamara was 88 years old. He died with his family by his side in Tennessee. He was at the helm for the Red Sox in one of the most infamous moments in baseball history, Dan Shaughnessy in today's Boston Globe, saying He has already heard from John McNamara's wife, Ellen, who told him Game six is always going to be hanging over him. Game six of the 1986 World Series where the Red Sox spiraled and lost. Many believe it all started when Roger Clemens was pulled from the game when the Red Sox were leading in the eighth. McNamara claiming Clemens wanted to be taken out. Clemens to this day denies it. Ellen McNamara going on to tell Dan Shaughnessy I just want to say one thing. My husband did not take Roger Clemens out of that game. John McNamara dead at the age of 88. Jim McKay W B Z Boston's NewsRadio
NASA to launch mission to Mars
"NASA spacecraft bound for Mars launches from Florida Today. It's one of three missions taking off this summer. While Mars and the Earth are in a favorable orbit. The new U. S mission is carrying something unusual for a spacecraft a microphone. From member station W O M F E Brendan Byrne tells you about it from Hiss. When the perseverance Rover lands on Mars in February, it will unpack a suite of scientific experiments to help uncover ancient signs of life on the red Planet. High tech cameras, spectrometers sensors, and this is the voice of Roger. Weeks speaking to you through the bars microphone on super Camp. Roger Weans is the principal investigator of the rover super Camp, a slew of instruments, including a camera, laser and spectrometer that will examine the rocks and soil of Mars for organic compounds, a hint that there might be further evidence of past life. Tucked away inside the super cam is the Mars microphone. And so what is there to listen to anything interesting? First of all on Mars, and so we should hear wind sounds. We should hear sounds of the rover. We might hear things that we never expected to hear. And so that's going to be interesting to find out. The Mike will also listen as perseverance is on board laser blasts nearby rocks, you might think we're going to hear like you. But you probably won't University of Central Florida Planetary scientists Addie Dove says the sounds of Martian rock blast will help scientists determined if they might contain organic material evidence of life on Mars. But it will actually sound more like this. Microphones on spacecraft are quite rare, really, because there's not much to here in space for sound waves to travel. You need an atmosphere sort of like a slinky, right compressed the sound waves in between the source and your ear drums. And then they make your ear drums reverberate. That's how we hear sound. Still, spacecraft microphones have been used before. NASA's insight. Mars Lander caught a snippet of sound capturing wind vibrations from two of its sensors, not exactly microphones. The observation was a surprise to mission managers. Engineers converted the vibrations into sound, speeding it up and shifting the frequency up by 100 times for our ears to hearing planetary society, says hearing things from another world would help build public support for space missions. For decades, The organization has lobbied for microphones on spacecraft, but those efforts have fallen short for technical reasons or lack of funding. So what will Mars actually sound like? That's still a mystery. The atmosphere of Mars is far less dense than Earth's and made up of mostly carbon dioxide. That's going to change the way sound works on Mars, says Weans. You could not hear somebody scream from a block away on Mars. On DSO. That's just that's life on Mars. But what we what we will be able to hear is our things that are close up, and it's going to still give us just a whole new world of information from this new sense that we will have on Mars. The Mike can also listen for mechanical issues as the rover moves across its landing site, Jezreel Crater. It's like when you're driving your car, and here a strange rattling sound. You know, it's time to take it to a mechanic. For NPR
The Big Tech Hearing Proved Congress Isn't Messing Around
"The purpose of today's hearing is to examine the dominance of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google. Roger the covert 19 pandemic. These corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. As American families shift more of their work, shopping and communications online, These Giants stand to profit. Locally owned businesses. Meanwhile, Mom and pop stores on Main Street facing economic price is unlike any in recent history. Rhode Island Democrat David Cellini, opening today's House hearing with the heads of the world's big tech companies. Amazon's Jeff Bezos out of Apple's Tim Cook, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google Sunder Pitch I. The foremen faced hours of questions from House lawmakers over whether they've used their superpower status to crowd out competition. And enrich themselves. The House Judiciaries Antitrust committee, which Cellini chairs has been looking into that question for the last year. Joining us to talk about the hearing today is tech expert Tim Woo. He teaches at Columbia Law School and is the author of the book The Curse of Bigness, Anti Trust in the New Gilded Age. Him welcome back to press play. Thanks for having me here. Well, you've argued for a very long time that the's tech giants have gotten too big. What do you think today's hearing accomplished in terms of getting more support to break them up? Well, they I think there are you know, for the first time, putting the most intense documents right in front of them and seeing how they react, and I think what we've gotten out of them, especially on Facebook. Is already some admissions of anti competitive intent that to my mind, make the case for filing a complaint even stronger. And what were some of those admissions that you heard today. Well, Ah. Mark Zuckerberg was questioned about by Jerry Nadler about the his. Ah, why he bought Instagram and pretty much Zuckerberg admitted they were ah, dangerous competitors. We sought to eliminate them at Natalie reminded him that it's illegal to buy off competitors because I don't want to compete with them, and they left it there. But, yeah, that was, I think a big admission and the main thing I've taken from the hearing so far. But isn't that part of business of hostile takeovers and trying to squeeze out the competition isn't part of the American way of doing business, so there's a difference between beating out your competitors and buying them. And since about 18 90. It's been illegal to buy a company just because you're sick of competing with him. You know, you could imagine. Let's take Coke was tired of Pepsi People's Children, Coke and Pepsi, you know and said, All right, forget it. We'll just buy each other and, you know, settle the so so Now it's been illegal since 18 90 or so. Right. So when it comes to Facebook, what about the issues of how it Spreads misinformation, especially campaign misinformation, and, you know, fake news for lack of a better term. Yeah, I know. It hasn't so far. Um, it has a little bit sorry, especially hate speech. I think the big issue there that they're focusing on and Is this idea that that Facebook has an impunity because they have such a secure market position that they're not really afraid of advertising boycotts. They're not really afraid of people leaving That's the least a point that the House representatives were trying to make, and so therefore they don't really have an incentive to clean up their act. What about the other companies? Amazon that also has incredible market share. Can you first catalogue just how big Amazon is and how much bigger it's gotten since the current virus epidemic? Yeah, you know, the Amazon has closed in on the market cap of 1.5 trillion They have 280 billion in revenue. They have increased dramatically. Actually, stock prices increased since the beginning of the Corona virus by I don't know the exact percentage don't want to get it wrong, but by a tremendous amount, in fact, And there was one day in which Jeff Bezos gained $13 billion personally, so they are the biggest of big attack for the first part of hearing they didn't get any questions, but representative Dia Paul brought it in accusing them. Of lying in front of Congress about how they treat third party sellers and pressing bass. Those hard on how he runs his marketplace. So they they, they've got some of they've got some fire. Coming in. Yeah, I guess the problem. There is not only well they sell, you know products from third parties always there slow selling their own products, and so they are. I guess in competition with 1/3 party supplies on their own platform. How does that work? I mean, that's I think the acquisition or the problem is that people worry that Amazon has become more or less the dominant online retailer. They have some competition Homer, but you know, more or less dominant. So you make it on Amazon are Or you don't make it at all. And if that's the marketplace, the prospect of You come up with successful thing? I don't know Better mousetrap, and then Amazon makes their own copy of it. So the Amazon version of it and then sells it for less. You know, that turns into a sucker's game, and I think that's been the main complaint about Amazon is ah, less that they You know about their competitors or something but more that they have turned the marketplace into something of a rigged game for their own products. Right and a sweet noted Jeff Bezos is the world's richest man. Right now, the company is you outline is just so big. It's hard to even wrap your mind around it. Is there any way you could break up Amazon or hasn't just become too big to break up? That's a good question. You know, it hasn't been subject to a lot of discussion, probably for the reasons you suggest. Most of scrutiny of Amazon is how they treat the marketplace. I think for a true old school antitrust type who just believes that too much power to concentrated should always be broken. Would want to switch, you know, break Amazon into some kind of pieces. One way might be to break off their Web services division, which is a dominant in its space. You could also imagine, as with it and t breaking it into baby Amazons. I guess that are supposed to compete with each other. But I know it hasn't been unlike Facebook and even Google. Has been talks about how would you break them up? Think Amazon. It's been more about can they? Can you get them to run their at their market place better? And then Google. Obviously a search giant and it's become a verb. It's such an intimate part of who we are at this point again. How would you break up Google if you could It's a good question. Let me let me say that Google has come under fire this hearing both from Sicily knee on the idea that they are essentially eating their ecosystem That is to say. You know if you if you like like with Amazon actually similar that if You know, you could come up with a really successful Web service of some kind in your sort of small enough that Google will make a version of it and then send all the traffic to it so that that's the accusation against them. As for you know, what would you do to Google one You could say, don't do that. That's what the Europeans are trying to dio. Another would be to say, Well, listen, it Google, you run the search part and just leave it there. Don't do everything else. Okay. Maybe run Gmail, maybe right maps. But all these other little things that are just clones of other companies. Stay out of that, or make them be independent companies. I should add. By the way, there's you know, I'm maybe we get to this, but there's been AH, Google face us a lot of Republicans during the hearing, talking about different issues. Trying to get Google to admit that it Ah Is too friendly to China. Eyes too unfriendly to the US Pentagon. That's been another theme of this hearing is that I think should be mentioned. Well, you bring up China, and I guess the argument against breaking up these companies is that they're competing against Chinese companies, which In many cases have the backing of the state and there's there's no limit to their monopolistic practices. And so if these are global companies, should there be different rules when it comes to monopoly now than there were, you know, back in the 19th century. Yeah. Or the 20th? Yeah, that is the argument. So you know, kind of goes like this. If you break up Facebook or make fix books, life difficulty the Chinese will take over. It's kind of a national champion like argument. So we have to have our guys. Um I don't find it convincing at all. Last time we heard that kind of argument was when Japan was the all great mighty power that was going to take over everything in America. And they said it so you can't break up the tea and you can't break up IBM. I think we've had a better track record. Forcing American companies to be competitive. It's not breaking them up, at least putting him under heavy scrutiny like Microsoft and hoping a new generation arises. So yeah, I think that's a pretty lame excuse not to enforce the law that put it that way. So what do you think is going to come out of this? You know, I think from what I've heard there was some documents that were coming out of this that nobody has seen. And I think they put more pressure on the administration and also the states to file complaints. I would not be surprised if Google ends up on the receiving end of an antitrust complaint before November. And after this hearing, I wonder of Facebook's gonna get 12 or whether that's going to be something that the election decides. But, yes, I think it adds to the pressure to file actual cases as opposed to talking about it.

"Weekend. Start of summer right now today. I know it's Kinda strange. Isn't it's very. This is the end of week. Nine of lockdown here in New York lockdown began The twenty second of March on now the twenty second of May Two months it's actually the ninth week. We've just completed the ninth week. And it's I noticed. It really started to get the people of this week. I've talked a lot of people were starting to really Either get depressed or they were crying or the were Starting to really feel it but you got through it. You got through the nine weeks. You've done nine weeks you've got about two weeks left if you're in New York and then it's going to open up is going to start June fifteenth. That's what they're looking for opening up phase one but I get the impression from some people they might go earlier. Might start to open up some stuff. June I don't pick up and then maybe in the fifteenth you'll lie in the stores and you're GONNA see start opening up so you got through it. You're probably and then if you want to get done during this period you'll better get it done this coming weekend the week after because that might be it and then you'll be a back out there so don't get depressed now some stores we're GONNA lose a pure one just announced the closing Lord and Taylor announced going out of business. They'll reopen when they can liquidate pure. One is going the you had problems though. It was a great story. That's day but it kind of lost its way and whatever you never feel what they sell in there. It's like a little of everything and whatever thing you WanNa do another chain that does it better so you won't see pure one anymore A hurts is in trouble. Like hurts may go out of business. And everybody's doing Uber's and all that other stuff so and that'll kill us car market because when they go out of business they'll dump like a million used cars on the market at once so We'll be back after the news.

"Wow We got a lot to get to Connecticut is open. New York. City should be opening about June fifteenth. We'll give you all the details about the judges phase one opening everything's GonNa start to open Even a mayor de Blasio always try to see if the slowest kid in the class gets it. Then you know you got through some even. He is starting to get it It's Memorial Day weekend it's Joe Bartlett when the when the New Year started it was twenty twenty mm. We're looking forward to the summer like I was. This is going to be a great year. The summer at twenty twenty was going to be a great summer. Who kind of imagined All of this but Summer begins officially. Today it's Memorial Day weekend. The weather's not that great but shouldn't Memorial Day. We can actually been next weekend. The twenty nine. This is a little early. Yeah so I remember the earlier in the year. So that's great. They may have an extra week summer. Who knew there'd be nothing but Connecticut is doing pretty well They've opened stores restaurants. I've been calling people in the big big stores up there and the malls and I said how's it going? These people are coming in people you know. They're anxious to get out there people coming. We're only at the thirty forty percent capacity though ahead to remind him you know you're only at five percent capacity before this began. They forget retail already died so But if you were driving around Stanford last night Bedford shoot. Where all those outdoor restaurant? There were people outdoors spread out if you were in Greenwich There was prime crab. Shell the Scowl J. House all the outdoor places and then on Greenwich Avenue Let the places put some tables outside They got a smart mayor. There's Fred Kamilo new mayor. This guy will figure this out the now. Here's what's going to happen there's The town was pushing for it. He's figuring out how do it? They'll close off parts of the avenue and let the restaurants put the tables out into the street and all over once that works. People are all watching Connecticut To weeks from now. This has worked. Everybody will do that even in New York. That's what we'll do it here. We'll close off some streets You know you go to Third Avenue on the east side Madison Avenue in the Seventies. We got a lot of restaurants in a row. They'll close off the streets and let them spread out into the street. Joe Bartlett doesn't know what we're talking about. 'cause he's in South Carolina where they went back to normal. What three weeks ago? I went to a restaurant last night. It was very nice restaurant but you could eat inside if you wanted to write the worst seats in. I'm not ready for that yet. Okay you don't feel well. You don't have many cases down there but if you were in New York City right now would you go to a restaurant if it opened. Would you feel little outside outside? I think you're fine. The service keep their masks Don They maintain their distance. No tables next to you. It's fine I I think I feel very safe eating out so listen to talk to every expert you can talk to every expert agrees on one thing. It cannot transmit in food. There's no way it's in your food that you're not possible now. What about the plate? What about the containers? The take out. It's possible but you know if you touch those just wash your hands afterwards and you find but all the experts now even that stupid. Cdc which is the other slow kid in the class. They're always way behind even there now. Changing their guidelines to say it's most likely never transmitted by a surface. They think it's always droplets person to person touch your droplets in the air. Very very rarely. Is it going to transmit on the surface so it's pretty safe to eat outside You know some people are afraid to go back to Sushi Sushi but again I've been huddling with a lot of restaurants with Sushi. Might be the safest thing you can eat. Because you know you've got that one Sushi chef there. He does everything. He cuts up. Everything does everything. It's not like a regular kitchen where there's a prep kitchen where like eighteen guys. Eighteen illegal aliens prep everything and then it goes to another station another station so forty hands of the time it gets like but again it should be pretty safe in a restaurant. I mean the all again now the only when you go to restaurant. We don't wear masks down there to you when you go to the store grocery store go into any sort of retail store you. Most people have mask on The only problem the restaurant when everybody's you have to wear the mask but when you sit down to eat you take it off. So now. Suddenly raises the tables with the masks of It's GONNA be alright. Everything's so even. I mean again. A lot of teachers told me this always look at the dumbest kid in the class. If he's getting it then you've explained it. Well then you've done your job if it's getting through to him so even mayor de Blasio says it's time to reopen He's watched Connecticut have done a pretty good job now. Of course you gotta wait and see if there's any spike in a couple of weeks but Florida Georgia Texas all the places that reopened despite we hear on fake news. There's no spikes anywhere. Everything's fine numbers are dramatically down in New York so the mayor is talking about June fifteenth for phase one reopening now phase one B Stores do all stores can open a new curbside Phase to should follow very fast. Maybe a week or so and then They'll allow you to go into the stores and I they're talking about. Possibly moving phase went up to June first and face to June fifteenth. So this could happen very fast if the numbers keep dropping so even even mayor de Blasios gets it so now you notice governor Cuomo. There's no hope of ever everything will be reopened. Even if he doesn't reopen we're reopening without you. We don't need you know. This is the mayor to block roads. Leading to the first half of June the city indicators the state indicators. We're seeing very clear progress. We have to sustain the progress. Now Joe Bartlett. What is wrong with him? You normally especially in real life. He's of He's kind of a fun jovial guy with a good personality. Yeah semen real life. He's a nice guy. He jokes around kids around with you. he's got a very easy going way about him he used to be not it wasn't Churchill but he was a pretty good speaker. You had a nice personality. Why does he say he sounds so frightened all the time? Now listen to this. He's giving good news and he sounds terrified. This is like a hostage video. All roads. Leading to the first half of June the city indicators state indicator what does it sounded. Oh well gotta think he's worried about what's going to be left of this city when he does decide to reopen it it's going to be it's a shambles. Yeah it's a disaster. Now he can put together all these commissions of how to reopen any through on the commissions a lot of Richard Ravitch type guys. You know very experienced Serious business people and I I'm sure these guys have been telling them you've destroyed everything that you totally destroyed the city. You GotTa stop this start reopening so You know you all these stores that are open. All the supermarkets are open. Hundreds of people only supermarkets every day. Nobody's getting sick in there. So why can't you open all the stores? Even the mom and pop stores clothing stores of you know whatever kind of stores I mean. Understand no makeup counter where they're GONNA put their hands on your face but start opening up So June fifteenth is The date the looking at figure June I. I think this is going to go faster than you think and again. They may try that thing when they do. The restaurants closed some of the streets and spread the tables out. You know when you're into like these Connecticut Restaurant. Some of them are real hot spots. So they've spread. The tables outs is a few feet between you and every table and when you go in and look at them you helping you do this before. This is the way you're supposed to. You know when you go to New York City restaurant you're on top of everybody Katie idea eating a meal in the middle of third avenues. It's just not appealing to me. Well but They do have outdoor tables illegals and all those places have outdoor tables in the Middle Street. well street all right now. Here's the other problem Even if you've ever sat I listen if you're at the Americana and you're eating cipollini outside it's beautiful. It's the grass. But whenever you eat outside mellows or anyone those places Madison Avenue. All that happens is four homeless guys. Come right up to your table and those is tripping all of your food buses. The exhaust fumes are going all over your system. It's not the greatest experience so well we'll we'll we'll Keep an eye on this situation. I think you're GonNa have some good news when we come back on Tuesday after Memorial Day weekend about New York City reopening. You see a big drop this weekend in numbers. Hey the president went to the Ford Motor Company. He had them convert the factory. To turn out ventilators they have been turning out tens of thousands of ventilators. I know what you're saying. You're saying how do we need these ventilators for we don't but this This cuomo this crazy Cuomo remember. He was yelling. Forty thousand ventilators. It was yelling this so much that he turned the president went nuts turning these factories into ventilator producers we now have hundreds of thousands of ventilators were stockpiling. I guess the what we'll do we'll just stockpile them if there's ever another Situation like this. We'll have them in a warehouse somewhere for years. But they're totally unnecessary so the president went to thank them. inspect factory. The subject was ventilators. And of course when he got there every question from the press wearing a mask. Where's your mask? How come you're not wearing a mask? I'm watching this you ever watch his dopey Lori stokes. She's on in the morning on TV. She show and she's so disgusted by him and she said he's not wearing a mask not wearing a mask. She's sitting in the studio with a lot of people not wearing a mask showing a clip of call wearing a mask showing clips of the Blasios. Not Worrying about never says a word about them so it's just a game. It's just a stupid game. They did ask him Why he didn't wear a mask what he did. Say something about ready to the choice.

"I think that because I play characters as an entertainer separates the artist or the art from the artist. And I feel like people can can can I don't know they don't get hung up on my beliefs they don't get hung up on my personal. They just see the characters and I I kinda like that they. Yeah I think a lot of other entertainers detainers. Not that. It's better or worse but most other entertainers are themselves on the Internet. And so if they say something the audience doesn't like then there's a legitimate person to be upset about now you know as whereas if a character does something terrible it's all that's a character And I don't think I'm a bad person I think I'm trying I'm not trying to hide who I am or anything but I love just kind kind of being a mystery to you know to most people I like when someone comes up to me. They don't know if I'm going to be nicer. They're kind of a little bit scared to talk to me because I don't know if I'm crazy and I kind of like having that are around me. I'm always curious because there are so many people who are trying to get where you are Mar.. If you run across in your dating lighter even just in your social life people who are sort of you know getting close to you you and you can kind of sniff that they have ulterior motive. I think it's pretty obvious. I mean it smells pretty punch out. There's never been anyone rambling Um they might have ulterior. It's definitely cut off. It's definitely toyed with my trust But I've I've made a lot of friends who are around. My you know following of our size of creator and I talk with you. Know we go to each other's houses and we smoke weed and we kick back and shoot the shit and we talk about this kind of and it's like I i. I'm not the only one who's going through it. I'm not the only one who like a lot of other. People are even possibly have had it worse than me or more defensive about rightfully. So you know. I've heard a lot of horror stories from other creators about like being tricked by someone that they were on a date with or being tricked by whatever someone they were hanging out with. Well I think just I just go with my gut with everyone I meet and I don't really an inch I I really am introverted with like I rarely ever bring anyone you know. have anyone over on this. I know them I rarely ever like hang out one on one with someone they really know them I so so for someone to be able to take advantage of. It hasn't happened yet that I know of on knock on wood. But I don't know I think I have a pretty good grasp on who's good and WHO's bad. Most people are good. I've found out like most people I've met in the last three years. I can't knock on wood. I've just been angels so especially if people outside of California picture. What do you look for dating? Weiss honored anyways tight. Oh let me tell you the faces a very important thing I think like a face. Well I I like the face but also like well when it comes to personality. I think they have to be very smart. Because I like someone who understands re or who can pick up on really subtle sarcasm or really dry humor and I think that the ability to do that I think I think a sense of humor is a brilliant test of intelligence or at least their social intelligence and and just their appreciation for word play. I think someone who can appreciate good. A good conversation likes to laugh and likes to poke fun a Yeah like if they're not making me laugh what the why. They must have sweet ass. Because if I'm not laughing there's gotta be some other redeeming quality and most the people of data just don't make me laugh but Yeah I look for. I am just a face because I think more that is I'm I'm not talking about physically when I'm when I'm on a date with someone you could tell a lot by there is what they're saying there is and You know some people I just had dead is and I just get real limb when I see that I'm just like Oh like are you even and then some people have crazy is and they're you know they're so yeah. I think the is not so so much the face but the eyes and just funny can't or can they at least appreciate humor. Yeah but really. What I'm saying is laugh at my jokes? Very important Shaw no I I. I'm pretty open. Even when I was in India I was flirting. Yeah I was and I did meet a guy. And here's some tea and I've only I've only never told anyone yet but I sneezed in front of.

"I am Gay was still part of me still I still Kinda like women is still do. I would say that I'm definitely more intimate but I still like women and there was a time in my life. I did only like women like when I was a kid. I remember like I would only checkout girls and then eventually it through puberty maybe it was. I signed one developing I was like oh I like like guys more. I don't I don't know what switched for me. But it was around puberty and so the first person actually confirmed it to my fruit fly. Is that offensive fag. I don't know what they say now but she was my best friend and I told her and that was the first time I ever felt because I lived in livermore which is very small. It's a very at the time. At least it was very a income. Pretty Conservative and there weren't a lot of people who are out yet and so she was the first person that I openly said it to and to not get the sort of backlash that I very much X.. or or or judgement or disappoint disappointment I think is the right word. I was afraid of. Disappointing her And I didn't in that felt really good and then I started being more open about it with my friends and that felt really good and then I started getting what people talk about movies like a weight off your shoulders because it is when you're when you're pretending to be straight it's a little a little bit of a lie you're telling every single time you pretend the checkout girl or every single time someone says oh you need a girlfriend and you don't you don't negate them you know it's like it's like it's a little little bit of stress that kind of flickers through your brain. It's just like a and it's one less thing I I don't have to lie about anywhere but I never really came out to my family because after I moved move to. La Youtube Channel took off. It's like there's no way they don't know that I'm gay and there's no way that like now at this point it's like a talk would be kind of awkward uh-huh brought a guy home. No because every time I dated a guy either it wasn't during the holidays or I was at their family for Thanksgiving. Actually no one one year idea bringing home a one year And that was like it was it was weird. 'cause I knew that my family and never seen that before like I'm the only person that I know of my family who is queer and so I knew they weren't used to seeing some like part of me was like all right. Just look as much like if you're just my guy friend coming over as we can but then I'm like like do I care that much about these people's opinions that like let's just suck each other's dicks. I don't know I I honestly I just want. I didn't know how to touted. I mean it wasn't super awkward. It just felt weird with see like my grandparents looking over Makram who has dementia Manchester just like having to be reminded. Oh He's gay. Oh that's Oh but a I don't know but I see my family pretty much like once a year now at same about I think in during the Thanksgiving Christmas this year is probably Thanksgiving. You know I don't know if I'll be there for Christmas but but yeah so and I'm not with anyone else so this is another year. I'm not bringing someone someone over but It is cool though it is cool visiting family you know now. Even though I don't I I visit them with the career that they all follow that that's diff- you know. Even though I'm not with anyone they still have a bucket of questions every time I visit home because they watch all my videos they follow my instagram. I mean they're very in touch with what I'm doing and that's why that's why it's like. I almost don't want to have the conversation. I know if this cool with what I'm doing and then following me this closely. They clearly know that I'm gay. And they clearly are still accepting so he was like no conversation needed to be had and I feel like it's almost less awkward to just. Okay let's move on you know so I didn't really have a coming out. That story just stopped and then I just stopped denying you know at least to my family and everyone else. It's like if you can't tell you know some people I have. I just I cannot tell and and I have to say it but I think most people know. I think I don't know maybe earlier this and maybe they'll hear this. I think he might be but Yeah do they all understand your career. I mean especially like the old older members of your family people who are sort of cree Internet they they do because a lot of them have kids a lot of them have kids now. The it's weird because I in my family. There's no one really my age. There's people who are a generation above me me in a generation who and then who had generation below me so that generation below me which Z.. Right yes he And then generation X. who's them above above me They know about the kids and the kids It's weird 'cause they only know me as as who I am on Youtube. They really don't know who I am in real life because I've lived in La for about seven years and a lot of them are around seven or older. But not old enough to remember genuinely who I was as a human being when I lived there so when I visit home I'll see in my cousins. Is there a little shy. Or they're a little bit. It's the same. Look I see when I when I have a meet and greet and people okay. Oh Hey you're next you know for the picture an autograph you know. It's like right when they're kind of during the headline that's sort of how my cousins look at me and it's weird because it's a weird way of spending time with his family and I it's it's It's like this. Is My family like chill out. I'm just here to eat but There yeah none of my family. Has There's been a dick about what I do. Thank God they're pretty comical people on both sides there. There are a lot of comedians that I grew up with so thank God. What are your dealings with like commenters and and fans like they can be vicious? Actually they've been ver- I've been really lucky If there's any criticism and I really I very rarely troll criticism which is at fake and gay dumb fucking fuck. This guy is very rarely. Do I see that Mo- if there's any criticism constructive like I could tell you use this ending before or I can tell you and that kind of Shit I live for because it's like you know you're right you're smart audience like you know but they don't it's not mean it's people if they're if they're criticizing it's because they were disappointed because they expected something that they didn't get or that or they. They were rooting for the video and some part of it. Let them down. And and that's the kind of criticism I get for the most part Ev. You know the Internet just like I said with the Youtube community. The Internet is been much more welcome and I work with kind kind of a freak show of people. My cast is very They're interesting each of them are interesting in appearance and in in how they conduct doc themselves and I feel like I run this little circus of interesting actors and every time I introduce a new person sometimes they might be heavy or trans or you. You know what a you know. They're they're you know I'm always a little afraid of what the comments are going to say. The first time I work with an actor I add them to my cast. And I'm like what are people going to think of him him or her or them and they've all been welcoming you know they've all been really really accepting and I. I'm very touched by how the Internet you know. It's like one of one of the actors I work with the most. She's a seventy something year old trans woman and she is in my opinion. One of the greatest actors I've ever worked with And she's one of the most brilliant people but when I when I had her in the videos for the first time I didn't know how the end that was gonNA reactor and she's reading my comments you know. And so it's like part of me feels it's like a you know a little bit like these are my kids in a way and I'm very protective of what people say about them. Because I know they're reading the comments and I didn't have to delete anything with her like I'm looking at the comments and like who is this interesting woman. And where did she come from. And why nothing was negative and to this day. They adore her and the other people I work with. I work with in all kinds of you know. Ages shapes genders cast is a very very colorful group of people and no one has ever picked on anyone one for any kind of so. I think the Internet at least the people who watch my videos. They're not the Internet that I thought I would encounter when I would blow up you. You know like why always thought. Oh thank God. I'm still a small youtuber because if I was big I don't know if I could take the criticism on the new. I Made Weird content. I'm like I don't know how the world would react. I've been surprised at how the world's reacted to it and so Negative comments yeah. They just don't wouldn't you attribute that to because it seems like that's the only place on the Internet. Well uh-huh doing something right. I think that the content doesn't take itself seriously at all it's very self deprecating. It's very like it's it's self-aware trash and and it's it's not. There's there's zero pride with it. It's all just like just utter. It's like like like going to the circus. You go to kind kind of be a little bit disgusted or scared or you know when you see people swallowing swords and I think that people go to my channel at this point. People know what they're into and they when they usually really when they click on a video of mine or and I I don't know I think that with content as vulgar as it's almost how do you call trash disgusting. You know like how do do you call. I don't know I I've just been very very very fortunate. I also enjoy like I rarely. I rarely come out as a human being out of character actor. You know other than time like this. You know a podcast interview or an appearance cameo in something but very rarely in my ever expressing my own on opinions beliefs and.

"I think is interesting. But again, it feels very under underdeveloped under like under under appreciated aspect of this film that they could have gone into. But they didn't. Because again, it's not it's not really a film for adults. Like that's just a long in the short of it. This film's not for adults. I think that we need to talk about the rabbit in the room because we've gotten this far into the podcast, and we have essentially not mentioned Roger rabbit ethic. There's a reason for that. Because he's annoying. And I think that's what. What I appreciate about him. Most watching it older is that he is what it would be like if Mickey Mouse or Daffy duck. We're in your house. You would just driven nuts by him. If you had to be around him all the time. And so I appreciate that. He's not really the star. He's he's awful. He is very awful. And the voice is just so annoying. You know, what it might be annoying? But Charles Fleischer kills it. Oh, Charles Fleischer is a gift mankind. He is in one of my favorite films of all times dilating, and yeah, he can do no wrong in my book. He absolutely carries the having to be the voice of Roger rabbit. So well in this movie, I love him. And I love his performance. I mean, he's he's amazing and everything that I've ever seen him in. And he really has that knack. And that talent for doing these voices that like you can't even tell that it's him like if you heard his voice, and then you hear Roger rabbit, you're like there's no way. Right. And then he does like multiple voices in here that he does the cab voice. It's like really exactly exactly he is like his voice. He is able to do things with his voice that a a very talented voice actor could do. But he's never in the conversation for like most like up there with talented voice actors like last his contemporaries because I mean, he's not really a contemporary of like Mel block. He's more of a contemporary of like more of a Mark Hamill almost or like, Dan Castellaneta or the guy who does Jim Cummings the guy who does like all the Disney stuff. Now, it is like when the poo and stuff like that. Because like when I hear Jim Cummings doing when the poo or goofy. I'm like, okay, that's Cummings. But when you hear Charles flashing Roger rabbit, and then Benny the cab in the same move, your that's the same guy. And then the weasels is well at least two of the weasels. Yeah.

Thanks so much for taking time. I appreciate it. My pleasure. Next. Roger stone's dirty tricks catch up with him, again, the amazing scene that unfolded in court between the president's former political visor and a federal judge right after this. Roger stone is officially gagged that's pursuant to an order from judge. Amy Berman Jackson today in federal court a hearing called by the judge herself after notoriously publicity hungry. Trump advisor posted a picture of judge Jackson next to what appeared to be crosshairs dome. Was apologetic quite apologetic today in court, but the judge was not buying it. She alluded to the coast guard member who officials say compiled hitlist public officials and stockpile weapons saying you don't even have to look at the papers beyond today to know that inciting extremist violent action is a possibility. Judge Jackson also warned stone. This is his last chance before she revokes his bail sending him to jail quote today. I gave you a second chance. This is not baseball. You do not get a third chance discuss the judge's action today and what they might pretend. Roger stone wanna bring in to MSNBC legal analyst Paul Butler, prosecute worked in the department of Justice's public integrity unit on cases of public corruption, and Maya Wiley, the senior vice president. A social Justice at the new school. My the you don't see this often. But I guess you don't see people who are like Roger stone that often is very rare to have someone particularly someone who should be as knowledgeable, and who is well represented as Roger stone, literally threaten a federal judge. And that is what happened here and one of the things that we must focus in on his one. The judge was restrained. She clearly was concerned. But also really gave him the opportunity. She remember that prosecutors wanted him more gagged than she. Agreed the gag him. He can still talk about his innocence. He can still ask for donations for his legal defense. But it can't talk about the case. And what he posted, by the way. It wasn't just the crosshairs. I think it's really important to elevate that he talked about the Muller probe as the d. State and the reason that lends itself to being threatening particularly where he has named a federal judge as if she is not an unbiased and impartial. Jurist is that the deep state reference has caused people to go out and threaten the lives of others in the past particularly using the info wars platform, which Roger stone himself has used. So just go back to pizza gate and the guy who showed up with an assault rifle after pizza gate that he saw so it's not their radical. And she was both restrained. But also trying to protect both the integrity of the process. And he I think it was really interesting is he finally got that, you know, his dirty tricks as in I himself as a trickster his dirty tricks here, which he may not intend. We don't know what is intentional in terms of promotion of violence. Maybe it was just a better way to fundraise doesn't really matter. When people go. Out and actually commit violent acts because of what you said, you know, Paul I've seen a lot of I've seen immigration lawyers and public defenders defense attorneys weighing in today saying if my client was out on bail and then posted an image of the judge in the case with crosshairs, they're not getting a second chance. What do you think? Absolutely. I think the judge went to easy or verger stone. So Chris remember the FBI Ray with twenty nine armed agents this watt team, the assault rifle they justified that by saying this is a dangerous guy nontheless he got released on bail..

"Every Thursday and a subscription allows us to keep doing what we're doing. And now here's a portion of our conversation on cafe insider from cafe welcome to cafe insider. I'm pre- Berrara. And I'm an milk. I n how are you the Daikin morning so Thursday, we might have been wondering what exactly we would be talking about about mode doesn't disappoint on Friday. We were sure we had something to discuss. Roger stone's before we get to the substance of Roger stone. Can we discuss some one of the more interesting aspects of his person his personal tax on you? Well know that okay. I'm definitely going to get. I was gonna talk about his personal to oh. The Richard Nixon tattoo on his back. Do you have one of those? I do not you. I don't have any tattoos. I actually actually since this is the insider. Yes, I can confess that. I actually have a Millard Fillmore tat. That sounds great. I mean, it's not quite as large. Well, you just don't picture on cafe inside. I might. It's I haven't asked you where it is. Even upcoming to keep it up coming up the Padres. Luckily uses audio so he was indicted on seven counts. Yes. One count of obstruction? Viscounts of lying to congress the house intelligence committee and one count of witness tampering. So before we get to what some of the interesting aspects, are let's talk about what we think of the strength of the case. I think it's very strong. I it's unbelievably strong. And I mean, we we should talk about this. But if you look at the other charges that have been brought by the special counsel, for example, you know, the thousand one case that's brought against say popadopoulos or Michael Flynn. You sort of see there's often an allegation that someone said something untruthful at its it's one time, even when you say one thousand and one just to you know, this is a statute we talked about all the time eighteen USC thousand one making a false statement to law enforcement. Yes. And is one of the things that that that has been charged repeatedly in the Muller investigation. And we've seen multiple instances in some cases. But it's often someone lied about something very specific take Michael Cohen recently. For example, he pleaded guilty to lying to congress about the timing of the conversations about Trump Tower Moscow. The allegation there was he told congress that it ended in January twenty twenty sixteen when he later admitted that it went through at least June of two thousand sixteen that's one very, discreet thing. One of the things that is stunning about this indictment is that you have pages upon pages of lies and basic instances in which stone said that he either had no conversations with WikiLeaks or minimized his conversations with WikiLeaks and others related to the democratic hacks of the emails, and then you go through and sort of methodically. The special counsel's office saying that's not true, and here are and they're quoting, and I think that this is really important. They're quoting because it's not just that they have a witness on the other side who saying that's not true. They have actual they have a what's after they transfer. Exactly. They have they have a transcript from the house. They've got. And then they've got emails from stone. Text messages, what's apps, and basically is don't can say whatever he wants. But you know, the record doesn't lie right? And I should make clear for folk. That when I mentioned this down two thousand and one you can allege that when there's ally to along official and also as here, there's another aspect of it lying to congress. So he's actually charged with house and one multiple times in this indictment, and my my favorite, which I don't know how you escape this because one of the defenses to a false statement is that it was unintentional that you made a mistake or you forgot very hard to prove that sometimes because a busy CEO maybe testifies in a proceeding or makes his statements to along Forstmann agent. And maybe didn't remember particular Email that was from a year earlier a meeting that was two years earlier. And some of that was at issue when Jeff Sessions testified in connection with his confirmation hearing, what meetings did he have and also with respect to that Trump Tower famous meeting from the summer of two thousand sixteen but here in my favorite example, may I release. So this is paragraph thirty three on page sixteen of the indictment. We have the documents right here in front of us..

"Personally, a politically. What is today mean? From your perspective today means that for the first time Robert Muller is pointing to probably the president as colluding with Russia in releasing those stolen documents. Roger stone is clearly named as the intermediary the conduit between Russia WikiLeaks and the Trump campaign, and it casts in very dangerous context the president. But also his son Donald Trump junior who came before a committee where I served judiciary committee and made some statements that are very very seriously in doubt as to their fullness. Now after some of what is in this indict, you think that the president's son John junior because of his testimony before the. History committee, then chaired at the time by cheer Grassley that that he made false statements. So that committee he has some explaining to do, and I think is truthfully. Very seriously in doubt as to some of the statements that he made about the Trump Tower meeting his father's knowledge of it. And about the statements also involving the WikiLeaks release of these documents and some of them are in this Roger stone indictment, but he needs to be called back to the judiciary committee. I've asked the new chairman Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina to do. So if necessary by subpoena, I think it should be done. Alright Senator Richard Blumenthal.
