‘Recall Newsom’ effort gains more than 1.3 million signatures
"Story. Everyone in California talking about today and now nationwide is the recall movement against Governor Governor Gavin Newsom. Over the weekend. We got word of 1.3 million signatures is the current tally, according to recall organizer's 1.3 million signatures. That means that they're on a pace of about 100,000 week. They need to get to at least 1.5 million quality signatures. But in order to know that they got the signatures, they've got to get two million. Two million signatures. Let's see 100,000 per week and we've got seven weeks left where at one point yet it's very going toe to be very close. But we have to keep the pace we're on. Get to the two million so 1.3 million signatures was the big announcement this weekend. They need two million signatures that would require about 100,000 signatures each and every week through March, 17th. Which is the deadline to submit them, But for you and me to collect them were probably really looking at March. Mm 8/9 or 10th. To submit them to the campaign so they could be properly reviewed, vetted, processed and submitted to each of the county registrars of voters. Now there's also been big developments over the weekend in terms of candidates getting in the race. We had John Cox on this show on Thursday of last week. Well, on Saturday, he announced it's official. He's running for Governor, John Cox ran in 2018. He was the Republican nominee. Um And he said he's running because Newsome is really that bad, and he's learned a lot about how to run races from his last race. Also right wing activist Mike Son of Bitch who has a big following on Twitter announced today that he is also going to file papers to run for governor if the recall qualifies. Kevin Fucker is still saying he's looking at it. But his team said he raised a million dollars $1 million and he put out a tweet saying this is a movement. Really a million dollars. Well, what he doesn't tell you is that the million dollars came from 13 fat cat donors. Kevin That's not a movement. Must you put a word with the letter B at the beginning of it, But anyway, the point being, we now have candidates. They're stepping forward and running on the Republican side. Lots of them. Also a billionaire has put $100,000 into backing the recall effort. Chammah, Polly Tapia. He's a Internet guru big following on social media. He is very, very wealthy. Challenged him last week that if he's going to run for office, he better pony up and give money to the recall. He has done that $100,000 to back signature collection. By the recall committees now In a in a sign that Gavin Newsom is taking this recall threat much more seriously. He's not only beginning to cave on important policies like the State Home Warner, or last week, he was indicating. Very big shift is coming on his decision to back government teachers unions to force kids to stay home and keep the school shut. But now we're seeing actual money being spent against the union. I'm sorry against the recall The National Union of Health Care Workers today rolled out a digital media campaign where it is running ads asking thousands of Californians to sign a petition opposing the ouster effort. Uh, the funding of these ads not only designed to dissuade people from signing, but they're also Reinforcing that If you signed their petition, they can get your name off of the recall paperwork in case you signed as some a mistake in case you were confused. Not a whole lot of people are gonna be confused. But what you're going to find, though, is that the unions and Newsome are now going to start pushing counter signatures. They're called withdrawal forms. Under California state law, someone who signs recall paperwork can take their name off of the recall petition after it's been submitted to the state. By signing a roux withdrawal petition. Why would you sign a petition to recall a state official and then turn around and sign a withdrawal? Well, yeah, you could change your mind. But what Newsom in the government unions and Democrats are banking on Is that people may be confused. They may not know what they're signing. So, for example. The National Union of Health Care Workers Campaign. Is emphasizing not the recall of Newsome. They're saying signed the petition because quote Now is not the time. To move Caliph Now is the time to move California on Medicare for all You see what they're doing? There is they're trying to make Medicare for all the issue, which is among some voters popular, even some Democrats popular They may not know what, exactly what they're

"Is adorned themselves with flowers in. So it has to do with the valor wisdom and faith that led them to the success in their bowel in mistletoe is interesting too. It refers to surrounding all difficulties in that one comes from Northland Balaji belder he was haunted by dreams, his his pending debt in his mother made everything odd to hurt him to try to help them out but she overlooks the mistletoe plants because she thought it was so. Small in. So delicate like how could it ever harm him? So low key he's the god of mischief created an Arrow from the plant and gave it to brother and convinced him to shoot his brother and he did and he killed balder and so frayed in her grief she begged all the other guys to bring him back and so when they did may prove that he could all difficulties even decades south. So it's kind of a real interesting one and. It's very intense like how did mistletoe end up being part of our Christian holidays iconography it happened kind with druids a kind of was a holdover from their time and then Christian sort of latched onto that in celebration of Christmas mistletoe into the home, and so it's a really bright why Barry that you would see during the wintertime in it seems like a symbol of hope like a bright light during one of the door of statistical cold times of the year. And also I think a lot of people don't actually realize that a lot of exactly what you're talking about the Druid Aka Pagan iconography is pulled into the Christmas tradition including the Christmas. Tree because that was a symbol of an celebration of Mus and the decorating of the goddess grammas and Pagan Traditions, and also the decorating of the tree with the balls is all about fertility I think that a lot of people don't actually know that. So again back to the why. Secretly Marketing Christianity druids stimulate. We. Hang. Out. He really similar. So not all occasions that call for flowers are joyous ones. Of course, flowers are part of many many many different cultures, funeral traditions. So what can you tell us about the chrysanthemum and also the miracle because this is really interesting to me yeah. Chrysanthemums mean condolences, and so they are used in funerals lot. You tend to see a lot of MOMS especially in Europe and in the US and so this likely comes from decorating graves on also say which happens in early November and so during. This time period is pretty difficult to find flowers that loan during this time that are you know large in beautiful and so percents amongst do. So it sort of seems like a fitting one on in Maryville another one that they bloom around same time of year and they need in grief and they come from the day of the dead celebrations in Mexico Diaz Marcos, and this is when the spirits of the dead are believed to come back and visit the in sort of a joyous celebration. So. This is rooted originally in Aztec. Festival honoring the goddess of the underworld. And Love, the fact that your book ties in not only European Greek ancient myth. But all these other cultures from like the world because it goes into all of this stuff and it's fascinating and I also like I love the fact that the victorians actually knew this and they were thinking about these other cultures at the same time in the nineteenth century. So I want to move on to love next if we can within flurry graffiti, we see different types of love relationships represented, and before we get to romantic love I was hoping maybe you might tell us a little bit about the meaning of the carnation and also Ivy. Carnations a mother's eternal love and heartache, and so during this time period they were pulling away. From religious meanings and conscious percent to have bloomed where the Virgin Mary's tears fell after Jesus was crucified in. So a lot of these sort of stories like that came about during the medieval time is when I see those things being brought up as SORTA. Seems pretty similar to a lot of how Greek mythology and tradition would be. Oh, someone died in a flower bloomed there in. That's where we get the flower. So it certainly seems like they're similar sort of thing. I E is about fidelity an attachment. So you think about an emmy plant, it winds in climbs in reins attached to trees in it also growing on trees that have long since die in. So that everlasting holes on them that really sort of the meeting instead from mythology or literature folklore from the planet south. Yeah. From its actual physical actions, which has like really interesting. Okay. So that's more kind of like. A familial kind of sense of love. But there's of course, romantic love meanings attached to flowers as well, and I would just say that amazing very intoxicating central sent of Orange Blossoms Lilac honeysuckle these have meanings that are attached to Mantech. Love. So would you tell us a Lua bit about these three blooms? Sure. Orange Blossoms or one of my favorites to talk about because they were still ultimate. Victorian. Way flowered. Yes. Everywhere. This. Acid with Queen Victoria who agency enforcer, and so when g married Prince Albert in eighteen forty, she had a head headdress of Orange Blossom and she wore a white dress it which was adorned with orange blossom flowers in. So when they were first engaged, our had given her a golden or celon route that had an orange loss.

"The brand became very important. Instead sophistication it breaks. The recipe. I knew anything about manufacturing drink switches on. It was definitely a challenge. And I think what? At least what I lent a lot from is having drinks brand before the duchess is that you work. What they call flavoring houses. So it's really interesting ABC they basically these massive companies. That develop all the flavors in the world. And I'd worked with really good beverage technologists and flavoring houses and. Kind of took the concept to them and we started playing around with it and. I think I'd like off of vision number eight I was like, wow, this is something quite special. I feel like this is a gin and tonic and it was very much like. Straight up London dry on Jenin sonic can we will almost ready to launch with that and I was still raising funds also like friends and family and taking this these little samples along and Have the proper branding at trying to raise funds for the project. I actually one evening realized while my aunt Phoebe, she had the previous year for Christmas given me botanical extracts that she makes itself. So that's and ended up having Orange Peel. Cloves. Star in these in in these little bottles of botanical and. That night I actually attitude drops own sample, and then it just came together completely. So that that more cross Jen authentic taste and it was just a little bit more complex. So then the neal you'll mind doesn't even need to be adjusted phonic it's just a good dry and old drink and. That's that's how we developed A. So my aunt actually played an integral part in the thing and we still by now like a lot of botanical extracts from her lovely I like the way he had a Eureka moment when you tested the botanical in Louis. Story. So yeah. It was interesting what you said about it like it was just a dry lovely drink because a loss of people you know the people that are in our community they've just given up drinking they say. We'll try these alcohol-free wines, but that really don't taste like the real thing. So I always say to them you've got some old called free drinks as a completely different category. The wine isn't gonNA. Tell you exactly light. You'll Cabernet Sauvignon Lo whatever you love. Even. You know the Duchess. Beautiful. Though is it doesn't taste exactly like agendas holiday on it's not GonNa give you the boss certainly is. So I think people see these strengths a third category he lied you're all call your canola, sweet drinks, coal free drinks, and I think if people can do that and just try all the different varieties that are more likely to find something they lined I completely agree with you and I, think even the produces need to start seeing it in that way because I think part of the reason why people associates. With all contemplates, is because the producers Andrea pushing it enough life I. Always I actually spoke at the cook soft drink conference loss. my whole talk where a about beyond alcohol and the the key to was basically that the duchess is a bone local free product. So I think what's interesting about being born also product is that the on any rules associated to having an alcoholic brand having to? Position of. Having to package it in a certain way and and having basically all these local limitations around around something that's actually got nothing to do with. You're listening to goodbye to alcohol podcasts from well to that one. What we're seeing now is that are more of these alcohol-free brands being developed that don't even have the connotation with alcohol so like like you say. You get. You get all collection but what really interests me is brands that are completely different. So there's a grand that just came in the US, which often very interesting it's called sudden blazer and it's Son chaser actually not son Chaser it's hasn't even launched yet. What they do is they said the buzz with without the alcohol. So they actually have active ingredients in the drink that. A certain buzz. Which is quite interesting and it's also very interesting flavor. Profiles. Another one similar to that is called recess. which is a predominantly CBD infused beverage and Yeah we've actually got assist a brand or brand that I also consult on cold Doug Drinks, which is a CBD infused 'em sparkling drink, and that's where I think people in Nala going and saying it will it doesn't need to be. None. Of An alcoholic products and I find that very interesting having other active ingredients that don't necessarily have the negative. Effects of alcohol and I love for about the born frees. Born free rather than a bottle of wine that is localized exactly exactly and that actually that's exactly the way we saw in the Webinar the other day for your celebration on engine that in July, the duchess is launching a new range called the duchess spreads we haven't seen another one I'm going to it the world's viz alkyl three wine spitzer it sounds like it but actually, it's completely made up thing and we sold as as we saw it as a completely blank canvas and we said, okay, cool. This is not an article for you wine that we're GONNA be putting in a wine lookalike bottle and try and salad and try and trick people into thinking. It's wine it's something that we're. Going to break it apart completely we say, let's disrupt the packaging. We'll put it in the same duchess bottles. Let's use the alkaline but why not add good natural flavor to actually make it taste good. So we add elder flower to the Saban, your blunk and we add a berry to the Raza. So knowledge becomes an alcohol-free drink just uses the outline as a base and why not put a to be refreshing right? So we say why not put a Spritz a bit of carbonation, and now you've got a completely different product that uses the ideas and taste profiles all other drinks, but has a completely new experience for the customer. Yeah. Let's say the elderberry sounds like a winner. That's. Very popular when we give people elderberry cordial tastes news. Barry I like the sound of that. We with right since while I will on July I mean just next month. We're we're quite busy at the moment with getting the packaging ready and. was. Supposed to launch. In April but then with the global pandemic, we put everything on hold and then interestingly enough the restrictions on alcohol led to this massive bumin free drinks sales, and we decided you know what? Actually it's the perfect time to launch launch the free drink.

"Leads to his downfall now back to the story by the beginning of two thousand ten thirty seven year old criminal Mogul Paul. Larue had become completely erratic. He was stocking up on military weapons and telling employees about his visions of taking over an entire country. And then Larue blindsided his Lieutenant Mark Wilson with a plan to turn his fishing business into an illegal drug lab. That was the last Straw for Wilson. He'd only taken the assignment in Somalia because he thought it was a legitimate business enterprise instead larue had made him into an international arms dealer drug trafficker and now the proprietor of a narcotics greenhouse. It was time for an exit strategy near the end of two thousand. Ten Wilson woke up everyone at the Galkayo compound in the middle of the night. He told them his mother was having a medical emergency back in the United States and he was going to take a UN flight out of Somalia in the morning. He was the head Honcho in Somalia so none of them could stop him. As the cargo plane took off. Wilson breathed a sigh of relief. He was finally leaving larue and his shady dealings in the past but complete freedom was still a long way off about a week later. Wilson called Larue to officially resign. He told him it's getting out of hand. It's crossing lines that I don't want to cross. I'm done larue. Uncharacteristically kept his cool. He told Wilson he was fine with the departure but of course larue was known for telling his employees one thing. And then doing the other. Without Wilson the business in Somalia quickly fell apart. Larue decided to put Agent Orange. The valium addicted security officer in charge of things in Galkayo money went missing. Employees weren't being paid on time or at all when the rue questioned agent orange. He blamed the man who suddenly cut and ran. Mark Wilson. So larue did what was now his habit. He ordered Wilson's execution. Wilson had been keeping in touch with a few friends Dylan Somalia but his contacts suddenly went quiet eventually. One of them responded via an anonymous email address they wrote. Hey Buddy sorry but I can't talk to you you gotta understand. I don't want to end up dead. Another friend of Wilson's who was working for Larue and Manila confirmed it. Wilson had a price on his head and one of his old roommates had taken on the hit fittingly. The man coming after him was named hunter. Wilson new hunter was a trained sniper and a proven killer. There was only one thing to do. He called Larue at firs. Larue did his usual song and dance claiming that he didn't know anything about a contract. On Wilson but Wilson wasn't buying it. He told the Rue. GimMe a reason. Tell me why I want to know if I died for an illusion or for a stupid reason or maybe you're mentally ill. I don't know the roof. Finally dropped the facade. He told Wilson about the missing money but Wilson was prepared. He had documents accounting for every penny during his time in Somalia he sent them to Larue along with records of all the serial numbers of every bill. The Rue had ever sent him then. Just to be safe. Wilson navigated to the CIA website. He sent a message to the generic address on the site saying he had information about international criminal named Paul. The Rue ultimately larue called off the hit but Wilson's impulsive email had already set in motion. A chain of events that would take larue off the board. Ever since the raid on his Manila Call Center in the summer of two thousand nine. Larue had been on high alert regarding law enforcement so in October. Two thousand eleven after the fiasco with Wilson was over. He made plans to relocate from the Philippines to Brazil. But like everything Paul did. The strategy behind the move was complicated. Larue made several preliminary trips to Brazil. Through the end of two thousand eleven. The trips had a singular purpose to have sex with as many Brazilian women as possible. Although the Brazilian government held an extradition treaty with the United States they provided special protections to Brazilian and the parents of Brazilian children by the time larue moved to Brazil permanently in May two thousand twelve. He'd already gotten a twenty two year old woman pregnant. He also arrived with his Filipino girlfriend. Who was also pregnant. She gave birth within just a few weeks of their arrival. Making this baby. A Brazilian citizen to what this plan was only useful live. Larue stayed in Brazil and although he was playing it safe he was about to receive an offer. He couldn't refuse just a few months after moving to Brazil. Laura's cell phone rang. He didn't recognize the number. Buddy answered anyway. The voice on the other end surprised him. It was Wilson and he was calling with an opportunity. He'd made some new relationships in the drug world and knew that larue might be interested. He told the Reu they are big. People big deals Colombians hundreds and hundreds of kilos specifically Wilson mentioned. A cocaine dealer named pepper and Pepsi wanted to meet Larue. Larue had been trying to make contact with the South American cartel for years but thus far hadn't been successful though he had already dipped his toes into the drug business with the Somalia grow operation. This was the bigger more lucrative deal he had been looking for. He told Wilson to move forward. When Wilson hung up he breathed a huge sigh of relief. The call had been a step in a DA sting operation. Wilson's fateful email to the CIA had finally found its way to the right inbox and he was working to bring larue down. Wilson wasn't surprised at how quickly Larue took the bait. Even though they hadn't parted on good terms larue had always assumed Wilson would come crawling back to him for money according to Wilson Larue as what people are capable of when they are really in need of money most of his employees are willing to cross the line every time the trap had been set. Now Wilson just had to get larue to walk into it. Wilson arranged a meeting between Larue in pepe. The fictional Colombian cocaine trafficker peppy would be played by a DA informant familiar with the Colombian narcotics world. Wilson set the meeting in Liberia where pepe was supposedly interested in building a meth lab. Liberia also had an extradition agreement with the United States. Well Wilson was confirming the final details. He made sure to remind larue that pepe wanted to meet boss. Boss just the two of them. The appeal to Larousse Ego worked. He booked a flight to Liberia.

"This week will delve into Larus origins and examine what drove him to build an international prescription drug conglomerate. And he did it all from behind his laptop next week will focus on one illegal venture that represents Larousse unwieldy criminal empire a Somalian. Fishing Business. That turned into a drug manufacturing hub. And we'll see how his ambitions led him right into the hands of the. Da in early two thousand and nine thirty six year old Paul. Roux was just beginning to branch out from pharmaceuticals into more ambitious criminal. Ventures larue was high on his own power but he was also getting paranoid. That paranoia was making him distrust even his most seasoned employees. Like Call Center Manager Moran Os- Os- had no idea that he'd somehow run afoul of Larue. In fact all signs pointed to Larue liking him. After ause arrived in Manila Laura drove him out to the coast in his own. Bmw ON THE WAY. They stopped at McDonald's for breakfast. Oz knew that Laura was a rich man but he wasn't surprised by the breakfast choice. In fact ause was more surprised. Larue actually treated him. Usually when Larusso employees met him at restaurants he would only order food for himself. Their next stop was the. Subic Bay Yacht Club where Larue paid in advance for Allah's hotel room as would stay here overnight and then meet the other employees as he headed out to the island of Sibu the next morning. Oz entered his hotel room that afternoon. Feeling buoyant not only was his boss having him oversee and expansion of his company. Rx limited but he was finally treating is like a peer paying for his food and high end lodging of course was wrong. The entire story about building an RX limited call center in. Seibu had been a trap. Now Oz was in the open ocean with a rifle pointed at him. After a few seconds of gunfire took a breath of relief. He wasn't hit a voice from on-deck shouted down at him. That was to frighten off the sharks. Don't think I missed the next time will be for you. Dave Smith the talkative British man finally relaid Larousse orders from the satellite phone. He told is confess and will kill you. Keep denying it and will wound you and leave you to the sharks. Your choice is wracked his brain. What could he possibly need to confess to? He insisted that he'd done nothing wrong. He hadn't stolen from the company. He would never do anything without Larousse permission. Smith said something into the satellite phone Struggled to stay afloat while larue determined his fate after a few more tense moments. One of the muscular men climbed down the yachts ladder. And pulled is back on board is never knew what Laura said on the other end of that phone. Perhaps he only meant to scare him that day or perhaps had managed to talk his way into a stay of execution when Smith wrought is back to. Subic Bay Yacht Club. He left him with one final warning. He said we are like an octopus. We have tentacles all over the world. You need to understand that we can reach you everywhere. Even in Israel you are not safe anywhere. The following day larue picked up is to bring him back to. Manila is got into the car hesitantly. He didn't know what to expect from his volatile boss but his ride with Larue was his only way back home to Israel. Summoned the courage to ask why he'd been taken hostage and tortured larue shrugged. He claimed to know nothing about the incident but he also show no signs of surprise or concern. Instead he told is that he couldn't be held responsible for what is partners might do he said. You. Don't want to deal with these guys. They will find you do whatever they say. This was emblematic of how larue like to handle as business. He rarely solved problems personally. Preferring to issue commands from his phone or laptop he controlled the action from afar like he was playing a video game like he was God larue also like to use mixed signals and subterfuge to keep his employees off balance. No single person ever knew how their role fit into the larger operation and they never knew how larue really felt about them. So the employees were doing a wide variety of work all over the world from fielding customer service calls in Israel to transporting gold in the Congo to scouting real estate in the Philippines to assembling a militia in Somalia but despite their different skill sets they all had similar impressions of their mysterious boss. One of Laura's fixers Tim them vacuous best described. Larue as a constant threatening presence he said it was almost like the guy never slept. And you never knew which personality you'd get on the other end when he called. He never said who he was. But you knew it was him sometimes calm and other times irate and most of the time you never even knew why when Larusso employees finally met him. They didn't know what to expect because there were no photos of him on the Internet but the first thing they noticed was his size he was white about six feet tall with an enormous girth. The source of Larousse Earth was in a mystery. He was known to favour fast. Food like Domino's McDonalds at his desk rather than going out to eat a steak. In most aspects of life he prioritized efficiency over quality. He usually dressed in a T. shirt cargo shorts and flip flops. The effect was disarming. One employee said nobody has ever thought the first time they met him that he runs a global criminal empire accommodations reflected that as well. He owned a series of high. End condos in Manila but all of them were mostly unfurnished aside from a couch bid and television but they ran up. Unusually High Electricity Bills. That's because of course he was constantly running fleets of servers. We're larue was casual about his home and clothing. He was obsessive about his computer setup. He worked off an ancient laptop operating Microsoft software over ten years. Old Sounds counter intuitive but he preferred this setup because he was able to fully encrypt the entire hard drive. The moment he closed the lid of the laptop the contents would be unreachable by any outsider. Programming and encryption had preoccupied larue since his youth in fact computers were his. I love hollow. Who was born on December? Twenty Fourth Nineteen Seventy two in Bulawayo Rhodesia today known as Zimbabwe as a child. A relative said that larue quote was fought over. Everyone wanted him. Our grandparents worship the ground. He walked on when he was a teenager. Larousse family moved to South Africa in search of Better Education. Larue resented having to learn Afrikaans. The local language spoken in school he felt superior to his classmates referring to them as halfwits and Morons. His salvation came in his first computer. As soon as larue realized he could build entire worlds in code worlds were governed by his rules. He was hooked. One of the Roo's cousins remembers teenage Larue as quote completely antisocial. Every time we went there he was always hold up in his room. I remember going in and seeing lines and lines of numbers on the screen and it didn't take him long at all to figure out how coating could start bringing in money illegally of course in nineteen eighty nine. The police showed up at Larousse Johannesburg home and arrested the sixteen year old for selling pornography in these early days before the Internet it appeared. Larue had revolutionized pornography distribution by going digital but the specifics who is operation. Remain Murky to this day. What we do know for sure was that. Paul's parents were appalled but he himself just laughed. When Larue retold this story with a plumbing pride he would recall how silly the entire situation seemed to him. Everyone would have praised him if he'd found a new method of selling books or Lennon's all this fuss just because his commodity was porn as long as Larue was making money. He didn't care what he was selling and even as a teenager he didn't care about breaking the law he didn't care about exploiting others later on that instinct would have disastrous results. Not just for larue himself but also for his employees and the entire country of the United.

"Galkayo Somalia two thousand nine Galkayo like most of Somalia at this time was an unpredictable and lawless plays ruled by warring factions danger and violence were constant especially at night in the middle of the city was a white three story house. It was protected by an eight foot tall cement wall with barbed wire attached. An addition made by the current residents inside. The House was an American. Who Will Call Mark Wilson as the night wore on? He tried not to let the gunshots in the distance rattle. Him Wilson arrived in Somalia only a few months earlier but he'd already taken major steps toward establishing tuna fishing business on behalf of his boss. A criminal overlord name to Paul Larue. Even though Somalia was an unpredictable death trap one of Wilson's biggest obstacles was a fellow co worker. Larue had dispatched a South African man. Who is often drunk and barely left the confines of the compound but Wilson kept his complains to himself. It was easier to just put up with the South African then face telling Larue that one of his employees was incompetent. His bosses temper was on a hair. Trigger Wilson jumped up the distant gunshots. Were now right outside. He dashed up to the roof. What he found was both a relief and a horror show. The gunfire was coming from the drunk south. African Wilson tackled the South African to the ground. They both laid their breathing hard from his first day on the job. Wilson had known that protecting Paul Larousse Criminal Empire wouldn't be easy but the biggest threat facing the company wasn't law enforcement or violent rivals. It was the company itself.

Seven elevens listen every single one and it has major violations violations and Mina Valley and they have a little code and it's pretty easy to look at what the Coda so. There's you know. Hand washing this temperature. Food the food and then his mom and yes. That was a little boy from the Hermano. I don't know where the personal facebook got. It was fascinating was pretty in depth. Yeah and so. It's a Santa Cruz county things. So I'm sure if you go to the county in put in restaurant health violations so I also put a Lincoln a show. Oh yeah that's a good idea. So I clicked on a couple with being too and then a couple actually clicked on one that I'm like. I'm sure this one has violations but it was clean so it's just like in my mind I just like maybe I didn't like the food. I can't even react when it was but I clicked on some of the ones we've done recently and they were all class I think. Yeah yeah well I think a big thing for me is when I walk into a restaurant as a glass door if there's fingerprints all over it I'm just like okay. Their strike one. I sit down and like the tables are grimy strike too and I rarely get destroyed three if I see grimy door grimy table I'm kind of a Germaphobe that way I I know that if I get a glass or Cup that has lipstick on Oh God not mine because I don't wear it. Oh I'm just like okay. That doesn't work quite quite down. Send me out of yeah. Yeah so there we go so we're going to put in the show notes that dumb health codes listed fascinating issue in the county updates at every I think they continually updated as because some people get violations in and they're able to cure them. Put it that it's been rectified. Or whatever okay so great rape all right and then our next little section we do is called staying in or stepping out Did you step out and go anywhere interesting this week. No whips interesting using but I wanNA talk about what we did when we stayed as dated we stayed in and we did a A taste of Coffee Milk Coca Cola Syrup Syrup Coffee Syrup but you have to put milk so so you don't melt but mel this was your idea. Why do we do this one? Well I grow up on You know in the Midwest and I was born in Massachusetts and when I would go to my grandmother's house in Massachusetts they always had copier for me and it was a bottle. It's dark brown liquid. It's mostly sugar with Probably instant coffee or some coffee thing in it It's just sweet sweet and it's coffee and it's wonderful and you put like a couple spoonfuls and the bottom of a glass of milk and poor has to be full whole milk can skim milk nonsense. What this put it on ice cream ice cream? I've put it in the bottom of cereal bowl before and to the goal they didn't do that. No and it was usually captain crunch that shred the top of your mouth so we didn't do this. What we did is that we know two males and it was like like eight title nine after we'd had a real coffee and she had gone online? And what were the ones that you'd boy. Well there's the main brand that we used to have kids was eclipse but there are also a couple other times arms kinds The second one was copy time and then the second one which I'd seen a lot in the stores when I was back. There was autocrat. Okay so we had three from you and then had gone to trader. Joe's and I bought I like the Coffee Syrup. That is not sweetened right right which is like you mean to just add hot water instead of Instead of it's like sort of an instant coffee the liquid so and then I think I brought the whole milk. Yes so we had. I will head home so the only did little glasses is only on our offer the sponsor there's only so much we can drink sugar immune since two of them were exactly the same. Yeah so the eclipse and coffee time I think eclipses like the main brand and coffee time is probably just a repackaged budget. Okay like Costco Brand Okay. Coffee Syrup so so. Which one did you like the best? I like to win. We did half of the hub of the trader Joe's and half of the eclipse because at trader. Joe's cut all that sugar. But it's still give you the nice coffee taste with some sweetness by themselves with a way too sweet for me. But when I added half half-and-half not half-and-half but when I added the trader Joe's unsweetened than it was this piff. Okay good and for me. Nothing but full on eclipse worked. I just love it. I go into my little glucose shock walking around. I'm probably need an insulin. Shot but do it anyway because it isn't because it Steph. It's emotional nostalgia it's childhood. Yeah so hearing a song along for a certain era. And you're right back. It's like when I taste that. I'm just like back in my grandma's kitchen and crabs coming next and it's going to be stuffed clams and Coa and all that good stop so the coffee and thank God for the Internet because it's the only way I mean years ago we wouldn't have been able to do this. I have a cousin would visit and I built bring me some clips Coffee Syrup from Massachusetts. Come out so this way we were able to order it online and have it delivered and enjoy it in the kitchen so you still have any. I have some of the autocrat left okay. So you've been drinking. I haven't drinking. Have you not noticed known as well so that was out stain and we did it. A little taste fits. We had a lot of fun. And that's what we did. We did Coffee Sarah. Yeah and then for our restaurant review. We went to route at on Monday for lunch. We did Christmastime also exactly so again. That's it's between. You know the two big stroz trader Joe's and and Bid by but there is also also another one downtown Santa but I don't remember what I saw. I think by Abbot Square. Oh I can't get might be either in avid square little hallway. That goes goes over to Pacific Avenue. Yeah Yeah I think you're right. Yes so they actually used to have one of those booths on Pacific Avenue. Oh the little they have one of those little booth. I I WANNA say year or two and I never ate. They're keeping Oh. I should try that. He has so it is Cajun Creole for right. It's New Orleans. Food is how I'd put it so so It so let's talk about what we had and Well it was nice and cold that day so I wanted something nice and thick and hot like a nice soup and I ended up getting the CRAWDADS spicy Jambalaya with brown rice and it hit the spot and it was beautifully presented. So what they did is they put sort of the mound of brown rice in the middle of the skew. If you WANNA call it a so just beautifully presented and you've got the small right. Yeah I got a small and it was plenty the of food. I don't know I definitely would've had to bring home. Okay if I had gotten a large. Yeah that was the smallest plenty and the it was. They said it was spicy. which usually for me is like? Oh Yeah Whatever spicy bad but it was spicy? Oh I think there was movie Seaman Dewey Sausage in there. Yeah Yeah and the little crawdads heads. I think were spicy as well. Also it was good spicy. I mean I was. I warmed up in no time after a couple bike to that so I had I had the fried catfish with fries and then coastal or on the side. I don't like spicy and I don't do poco shrimp so limiting menu mudgee order. Now I know you will never touch cat fetch coach. Not Right Peters Yeah I like catfish. It was a little bland because it wasn't spicy the fries with good coastal came in a little sort of side plastic mystic thing but it was delicious. Oh good was fresh. It was crunchy at had. Just a little zing to it so I really like the coastal mine. was you know okay. So let's talk about the restaurant before we give us you know how style were a ratings rating system so the restaurant is is kind of bland inside a strip molly. Yeah it's very strip molly good way putting it. Yeah so does have some outside seating which is yeah. That'd be lovely but it's you know it is just wooden tables and chairs and nothing particularly interesting. Yeah and I think he used to be like a fro Yo and they kept the same Oh the walk into the cashier there at the front. Oh Yeah Kinda sidewall where they had all the freezers installed explain. I think that's I didn't do much but changed into from the Froyo or whatever. Yeah so this is what you order from the cashier or the person at the front whoever does and then you know they bring it to your table and and then you bust your arm so this is not a fancy schmancy restaurant at all in hardy and did did we have an appetizer orders..

"Doubled down in nineteen ninety. Holyrood dropped out of high school to dedicate himself fully to coding. He completed the year's worth of coursework at South African college and just eight weeks by nineteen ninety one. He had collected programming certificates from three different training courses. Larue was ready to make moves on his own as he grew older he felt he was outgrowing South Africa. He wanted to live somewhere cosmopolitan where his skills would be recognized in the early nineties when he was eighteen or nineteen. He purchased a one way ticket to London when he arrived at the airport. He was told that his luggage was too heavy. Instead of paying the overweight fee he opened his bags and removed moved his clothes when the luggage went back on the scale there was nothing but coding books inside. He would travel to London with only the clothes on his back. larue quickly secured his first job in England at B. E. I a modest software development company. Right away he prioritized his work above everything else. His early employer described him as having quote very little personality he was is against doing anything social. He had no interest in building relationships with anyone. As far as I could see larue thought he was finally living his best life life completely absorbed in his work but is the nineties progressed and he continued to expand his skills Kotor. He found that his work at B.. I wasn't wasn't enough to satisfy his intellect. He started working on his own project at home in Nineteen ninety-seven twenty-four-year-old or your old larue began developing his own encryption software. In his free time he called it encryption for the masses or e four m Dan for short up until this point encrypted files would still appear during a search of the hard drive in fact encrypting files actually had the unfortunate side effect of showing the authorities exactly which files they should look at but Larousse e forum was different users could encrypt to their entire hard drive or single files and the files would be completely concealed from any invaders. It was Larousse very first stroke stroke of genius. Through the software's Development Larue used coding forums on the Internet to troubleshoot issues and solicit advise when when he was ready to release e four M in nineteen ninety eight. He posted the code online for free in the spirit of the early Internet. He he wanted his community of coating peers to continue working on the project. Improving it for the common good of course as we all know. The Internet Internet is not always a community that works toward the common good. It's often a cesspool for the very worst of human behavior. The Internet chewed up. Laura's Genius Software Code and exploited the hilt roughly two years after he forums free release. Larue found himself working in for a client who was developing software that used elements of the forum code and unlike Larue the client was monetize ing it. Larue had never seen a scent of prophets from the software. larue complained about his situation on the message. Boards he wrote the whole point point in the beginning of e for him was to publish the code to get peer review and help to enhance the product. In the end people climbed onto on my back did not help one bit bitched. All the time stole the code for incorporation into their own products and generally abuse the whole situation. The abuse of Laura's life's work on e four M changed him forever. He'd never trust a stranger again and a year later he learned he could never trust his family either in two thousand to thirty year. Old Larue. Apply to renew his passport. He was finally going into business on his own and wanted to make sure he was. Free to travel is needed but when he received a copy of of his original birth certificate from Zimbabwe he noticed something strange. The name listed under mother wasn't the woman who raised him. And where your Paul Roos name should have been it said unknown when Larue called home a relative was reluctant to discuss the issue. You but finally they admitted that Larue had been adopted. larue was forever haunted by the revelation particularly by the fact that his given birth name was just unknown. larue wanted to be known to be someone influential but at the same time the the incident fueled his mistrust as much as he wanted to be famous and powerful he would always operate in the shadows behind heavy..

This week will delve into Larus Larousse origins and examine what drove him to build an international prescription drug conglomerate and he did it all from behind his laptop.

The Zimbabwean Mastermind: Paul Le Roux
"In early two thousand nine thirty. Six Year Old Paul Roux was just beginning to branch out from pharmaceuticals into into more ambitious criminal. Ventures larue was high on his own power but he was also getting paranoid. That paranoia was making him distrust. Trust even is most seasoned employees like Call Center Manager Moran Oz as had no idea that he'd somehow run afoul of Larue. In fact all signs pointed to Larue liking him after ause arrived in Manila larue drove him out to the coast in his own. BMW AM W on the way they stopped at McDonald's for breakfast. Oz knew that larue was a rich man but he wasn't surprised by the breakfast choice. In in fact is was more surprised that larue actually treated him usually win. Larousse employees met him at restaurants he would only order food for himself so their next stop was the Subic Bay Yacht Club where larue paid in advance for houses hotel room. Oz would stay here overnight tonight and then meet the other employees as he headed out to the island of Seibu. The next morning is entered his hotel room that afternoon feeling buoyant. Not only was his boss having him oversee and expansion of his company are limited but he was finally treating is like a peer paying for his food in high end lodging of course as was wrong the entire story about building an Rx limited call center in Sibu had been in a trap now as was in the open ocean with a rifle pointed at him. After a few seconds of gunfire fire. Oz took a breath of relief. He wasn't hit a voice from ondeck shouted down at him. That was to frighten off the sharks. Don't think think I missed the next time will be for you. Dave Smith the talkative British man finally relaid Larousse orders from the satellite phone. When he told is confess and will kill you? Keep denying it and will wound you and leave you to the sharks. Your choice is wracked his brain. What could he possibly need to confess to? He insisted that he done nothing wrong. He hadn't stolen Dolan from the company he would never do anything without Larousse permission. Smith said something into the satellite phone Struggled to stay afloat while larue rude determined his fate after a few more tense moments. One of the muscular men climbed down the yachts ladder. And pulled is back on board is never knew what Larue said on the other end of that phone. Perhaps he only meant to scare him that day or perhaps as had managed managed to talk his way into a stay of execution when Smith brought is back to Subic Bay Yacht club he left him with one final warning. He said we are like an octopus. We have tentacles all over the world. You need to understand that we can reach you everywhere aware. Even in Israel you are not safe anywhere. The following day larue picked up is to bring him back to Manila as got into the car hesitantly. He didn't know what to expect from his volatile boss but his ride with Larue was his only way back home to Israel Summoned the courage to ask why he'd been taken hostage and tortured larue shrugged. He claimed to know nothing about the incident but he also showed no signs of surprise or concern. Instead he told is that he couldn't be held responsible for what is partners might do he said you. Don't want to deal with these guys. They will find you do whatever they say this. This was emblematic of how larue like to handle as business. He rarely solved problems personally. Preferring to issue commands from his phone or laptop up he controlled the action from afar like he was playing a video game like he was God larue also like to use mixed signals and subterfuge fused to keep his employees off balance. No single person ever knew how their role fit into the larger operation and they never knew how larue through really felt about them lose. Employees were doing a wide variety of work all over the world from fielding customer service calls in Israel L. Transporting gold in the Congo to scouting real estate in the Philippines to assembling a militia in Somalia but despite their different skill assets. They all had similar impressions of their mysterious boss. One of Larousse. fixers tim them back as best described Larue as a constant threatening threatening presence he said it was almost like the guy never slept and you never knew which personality you get on the other end when he called he never said who he was but you knew it was him sometimes calm and other times irate and most of the time you never even knew why when Larousse employees finally met him. They didn't know what to expect because there were no photos of him on the Internet but the first thing they noticed was his size is he was white about six feet tall with an enormous girth. The source of Laura's girth wasn't a mystery. He was known to favour fast. Food food like Domino's McDonalds at his desk rather than going out to eat a steak in most aspects of life he prioritized efficiency over quality. He usually dressed in a T.. Shirt cargo shorts and flip flops. The effect was disarming. One employee said nobody has ever thought the the first time they met him that he runs global criminal Empire Larousse accommodation's reflected that as well. He owned a series of high. End condos in Manila Hilla. But all of them were mostly unfurnished aside from couch bid and television but they ran up unusually high electricity bills. That's that's because of course he was constantly running fleets of servers. We're larue was casual about his home and clothing he. He was obsessive about his computer setup. He worked off an ancient laptop operating Microsoft software over ten years. Old sounds announce counter intuitive but he preferred this setup because he was able to fully encrypt the entire hard drive the moment he closed the lid of the laptop laptop the contents would be unreachable by any outsider. Programming and encryption had preoccupied larue since his youth in fact act computers were his. I love Paul was born on December. Twenty Fourth Nineteen Seventy two in Bulawayo Rhodesia Asia today known as Zimbabwe as a child a relative said that larue quote was fought over. Everyone wanted him. Our grandparents grandparents worship the ground. He walked on when he was a teenager. Larousse family moved to South Africa in search of better education larue resented and having to learn Afrikaans. The local language spoken in school. He felt superior to his classmates referring to them as halfwits and and morons his elevation came in his first computer. As soon as Laura realized he could build entire worlds in code worlds were governed by his rules he was hooked. One of Larousse Cousins Remembers Teenage Larue as quote completely antisocial Dole. Every time we went there he was always hold up in his room. I remember going in and seeing lines and lines of numbers on the screen and it didn't take Kim long at all to figure out how coating could start bringing in money illegally of course in nineteen eighty nine. The police leased showed up at Laura's Johannesburg home and arrested the sixteen year old for selling pornography in these early days before the Internet it appeared heared larue had revolutionized pornography distribution by going digital but the specifics to his operation. Remain Murky to this day. What we do know for sure was that Paul's parents were appalled but he himself just laughed? When Larue retold this story with with a plumbing pride he would recall how silly the entire situation seemed to him? Everyone would have praised him if he'd found a new method of selling books or Lennon's all this fuss just because his commodity was porn chip as long as Larue was making money. He didn't care what he was selling and even as a teenager he didn't care about breaking the law he didn't care about exploiting others later on that instinct would have disastrous stress results. Not just for larue himself. But also for his employees and the entire country of the United States
