TikTok reaches deal that would give Oracle oversight of U.S. operations
"And Tick Tock recently made headlines Everywhere when Resin Donald Trump signed an executive order. That would essentially ban the Chinese owned APP in the US for national security reasons. Unless it sells its operations here to an American company. And of course, if that were to happen. We would have nowhere to go to see a million potatoes singing. To Adele. And that would be a national tragedy. This week deal actually emerged between TIKTOK and American company Oracle but some people like Zachary say trump's tiktok policy effectively changes. Nothing. The argument goes like this. It will do little to protect Americans data from the Chinese government because there are still plenty of other ways China could get that data that this move is just a new kind of security theater basically. The hard work of data security according to this actually lies elsewhere. So, Zachary TIKTOK has been banned in Indiana a few other countries, but it's still pretty popular for now it's the most popular video sharing app i. can see why it seems like fun and there are mental creative. They're short I mean the whole nature of the medium has their time limited. What happened with Tiktok this week what happened this week? Should be clear but isn't. Basically, in August, the trump administration ordered via executive order whose legality remains highly questionable that the Chinese owner of Tiktok, a company called Bite Dance. Divest itself of Owning Tiktok within ninety days or face the prospect that tiktok would be shut down in the United States. I broke the deal I said you can't do business in the United States, which is at least potentially within the power of the US federal government based on national security concerns based on national security and the logistics are complicated that you probably could order apple and other people and servers that are hosting tiktok. that. They couldn't do it and it would defacto make it impossible for Tiktok to function. So that is what began a process where the owner of Tiktok, again, a Chinese company sought an alternative way to their cell, the US portion of Tiktok or what ended up happening major deals Rocking Wall Street this morning pushing futures higher. We find an American technology partner Oracle beat Microsoft and become the technology partner for TIC TACS US operations although will not. receive its coveted algorithm so that all took talks data would be kept in the United States on servers owned by an American company and not by Chinese company because the whole point of this was that all these people using Tiktok, these tens of millions, hundreds of millions that data was potentially vulnerable to being used and therefore misused by the Chinese government. How so So the fear was because technology companies in China by Chinese law are required if. By the Chinese government to turn over data relevant data that the Chinese government could tell the parent company of Tiktok, hand us all of your user data which user data of again tens of millions of Americans. and. Then China would have that data. So that was the concern right and and that's a legitimate fact the Chinese government could order that. The problem is, of course, one via our court system, an American court can order or prosecutor can subpoena data. From our companies. So it's not like what you and I do on Google or what we do on any technology provider is somehow. Unavailable. To government if government decides that it's in its interest to get it not to mention the the various many non-government actors, the vacuum, the stuff up and use it for their own purposes that is even more important I think probably more relevant to the China issue which is. Does it matter whether the data is in this case, potentially house by Oracle massive US hardware and software company versus being housed by servers in China. In terms of the ability of the Chinese government to obtain that data, it wanted to obtain it because not just third parties that hoover up data and use it in the whole buying selling and the data market, but just spying tools. Whether it's the NSA in the National Security Agency in the United States or various Israeli cybersecurity and or cyber spying companies or the Chinese government. Most of this data isn't that secure. Not. Like. Triple encrypted quantum encrypted defense department level communications. So likely true that if the Chinese government really wanted my teens Tiktok data, it doesn't really matter whether that data's House on servers in China owned by Chinese company or whether it was housed on American servers on buying American company. So I guess, then how do we get to this point? How did you know given what you just said why has this become such a big issue? How did it start? Yeah it's a good question I I'm not sure. There's a precise answer. It's part of a whole continuum of the trump administration in particular identifying China as a proximate threat to the United States and a whole series of ways competitively in terms of trade practices hence the hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese imported goods that have been subject to American tariffs. It's part of a multi year campaign against this massive Chinese telecom equipment company called Wa wa, which has been a leader in next generation five G. Telecom equipment in a way that again, some of the same concerns have existed which is. That the Chinese government would would use the production of that equipment as a way to spy on who met from purchase adequate. And Look a few years ago. There was a a forced sale of gay dating APP Grindr, which was also owned by a Chinese company, and so there was an earlier precedent of forcing a Chinese company to sell an American APP Social App. Because, of data concerns and finally, there's the fact that for years long predating the trump administration. China has not allowed American social media companies like facebook. To function in China. So there's the tit for tat. You know you don't let our social media functioning companies function there. Why should we let yours function here? There's Several year campaign against China which the trump administration's pursued but I think has a good deal of democratic support I. Mean if it's close to a bipartisan sentiment that China, China's a threat as anything we have right now. Why Tiktok? Suddenly became a thing I may partly have to do with the fact that it suddenly became a very big deal in the United States. I mean, this was not a company that had any footprint several years ago and suddenly as. The APP does your so it may have had to do with something that got really big and is very noticeable. Salsa not that economically important. So a lot of people would be royally pissed off Tiktok were banned. It's not like tiktok is. An integral component. To the US economy either during covid or without covid. So it's an easier target. We'll be right back. Everyone wants to become a better leader this groundbreaking new book how to lead shows you how David M Rubenstein is one of the visionary founders of the Carlisle Group and host of the David Rubenstein Show where he speaks to leaders from every walk of life about who they are, how they define success and what it means to lead.

Effective innovative leaders. Walter Isaacson proclaims reading this invaluable trove of advice from the greatest leaders of our time is like sitting in an armchair and listening to the masters reveal their secrets, pick up a copy of how to lead wisdom from the world's greatest CEOS founders and Game Changers Bhai David Rubenstein available in Hardcover e book or audio, and we're back I get the kind of general personal security aspect of it. Where does the national security aspect of it come in? Is it because there's concern about people who worked at the Defense Department or the military whoever having to talk in in use in their households or people in the Defense Department are not allowed to use tiktok certainly not on their phones. For before this although they may have teenagers who That's vulnerability as well. So it wasn't primarily about like US government employees who might have sensitive data that tiktok would be the back door way that the Chinese government would spy on them but it was generalized sense of any foreign government that is using private American citizen data potentially for nefarious purposes represents a national security threat. Now, it clearly has not represented the kind of national security threat in the estimation of the White House right now when it's Russian. Manipulation of social media accounts the same principle should or would apply right. If you'RE GONNA ban, Tiktok you'd probably want to take action against the a variety of Russian media enterprises that are attempting to manipulate and hoover up American user data. Some of that data's you mentioned earlier in terms of third party is available to anybody for a price just because there's a marketplace for data. Which I think either most of us aren't aware of or frankly most probably don't care if politicos data on this podcast gets sold to fourteen vendors so that it can sell you and me products based on our other computer activity most people. Either like that, or don't care about that. But the national security concern is simply because it's a foreign government that could potentially. Use, our search history or browsing history nefarious. And again a, that might be true but be it's likely that all this kind of data is obtainable irrespective of whether or not a company called TIKTOK. Happens to have access to a lot of it. It's really interesting. So into this whole story comes oracle, you know huge hardware software firm but how did they get involved here? Yes. Oracle is is a multibillion dollar firm that has had the same public profile as Microsoft or Amazon or facebook or apple because most of its business is to other large companies, you know you and I don't tend to go out and buy Oracle piece of hardware because we don't need a hundred and fifty thousand dollars server or. Network system for our employees. They're largely corporate provider throw a huge provider to the Defense Department in terms of cheer equipment and material, and they're huge software company. They're one of the early Silicon Valley success stories and the billionaire founder Larry Ellison has been probably more conservative than not I don't know that I buy into the whole. This is a reward versus. A snub to the other potential main acquirer or partner for Tiktok, which was rumored to be Microsoft but this is an unusual. This doesn't usually fit oracle's business model. Well, that's that's interesting. So what is their interest in getting involved here perceived to be I'm not one hundred percent clear about that I mean look at could allow them to. Have a little bit more of a consumer facing brand. Again, I mean Oracle's. Primarily a software company primarily a database company. Maybe this could help them increase their databases. There's no way that this is a natural fit for goal. But at the same time north this a huge cost for Oracle, maybe it'll produce some American jobs. I mean. They're looking for growth just like everybody's looking for growth, and once you get to be the size of Oracle. Growth gets harder some of they're also looking for a DIFFERENT INDUSTRY TO BE President Chore? So. What exactly did they given? What did they get here that as of this conversation is not one hundred percent clear off so it was presented as or go by tiktok. That is not the case or at least it's not the case now and as possible. The deal will be scuttled or change given that all of this has to be approved by the government has to be approved by committee. Called Syfy S, which is the committee in charge of looking at global deals in terms of US national security, but it would seem that right now. The parent company of Tiktok saw own TIKTOK and get some of the economic benefits of TIKTOK. This Chinese company called by dance and that Oracle in turn will get a massive licensing deal to house Tiktok data and information on its own. Servers and using its own software. So the concern that the Chinese government would have access to that data would be allayed meeting under this agreement arrangement because the data would be managed by and it's housing would be arranged by a US company. The Chinese government could order by dance to turn over but by dance itself wouldn't actually have access to that data. It's interesting I mean based on what you said before it's they're they're they're moving this data from place a, it's not going to be in a different place and I guess the Chinese government will no longer have a key to the door. But as you said before there's many different ways that either the Chinese government or a lot of other. State or private actors can get hold on more or less any data they want to these days right? which kind of raises the question for point of all, this is ENA. It's certainly true. It would make it a little more challenging to get that data under that kind of arrangement. It seems like this a big fight over a big company. That's not actually really about. The literal subject of the conflict here. Yeah. It is totally fair to say that whatever the imbroglio about tiktok has very little to do with tiktok. And everything to do with US policy toward China. And the trump administration looking for some High profile optic to be able to say we're we're being tough on China and protecting American citizens. Again, the oddity of Tiktok is given that so many of its users or young adults. Who Don't vote although who would be? Extremely, Acetate it. If they woke up tomorrow and there's no TIKTOK meeting, it's probably not. The most popular move if what you're trying to do is gain support during a presidential election. So it's not entirely clear what constituency the served there wasn't like a huge congressional clamor for Oh my God. We're all big imperilled by these fifteen second videos. So where do you think things go from here in terms of into in terms of the real story behind all this in terms of the U., S., China relationship and the increasing in. them of that. So I think to some degree regardless of who wins the presidential election. there. Is a train that's left the proverbial station of increasing. Distrust and animosity between the United States and China. But within the context of an incredible amount of economic interdependence that you cannot just snap your fingers and several or at least not without massive massive harm to each part of that equation both the United States and China, and that's that's pretty unprecedented. Right? Right. That's like the Cold War analogy doesn't work because there was no economic relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union nineteen. Fifty S
FBI director says Russia attempting to influence 2020 election
"Hill today, FBI Director Christopher Ray told Congress that proven election meddling is coming from Russia. The Russians aren't targeting election infrastructure, Ray said. But stirring up division. We certainly have seen very active, very active efforts by the Russians to influence our election. In 2020 through what I would call more than malign foreign influence a side of things. Social media use of of proxies, state media online journals. Etcetera, an effort to both so divisiveness and discord on DH and I think the intelligence community has assessed this publicly to primarily to denigrate Vice President Biden Raise testimony comes a week after a Department of Homeland Security whistleblower alleged he was told to tamp down intelligence relating to Russian interference.

Aleksei Navalny, Putin Critic, Was Poisoned at Hotel, His Team Says
"In Germany have already confirmed it. But now there's more evidence that Russia's opposition leader was indeed the victim of Val Val play here's correspondent Patrick Revelli. Alexei Navalny's team said a German military lab found traces of the Nova choc nerve agent used to poison him on a water bottle in his hotel room in the Siberian city of Tom's. It suggests the Russian opposition leader was poisoned before he left the hotel for the flight to Moscow on which she felt critically ill.

Novichok-tinged bottle found in Navalny's room: colleagues
"Now. Supporters of the Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, say traces off the nerve agent Na'vi Chuck have been found in a water bottle retrieved. From his hotel room in Siberia on the line from Moscow, Sergei Gauri Ash from the BBC's Russian service and Saturday. What's the significance of this? Sir James, the first and most Navalny's supporters has actually proven that the most prominent Kremlin critic was likely poison before he headed to the airport in Siberia. And fell violently ill on a flight last month, So at first they thought that he was poisoned in the airport of AA Cup of tea, which he drank in the airport Cafe in Tom's cuts the city in Siberia. But they have actually proven that they found a bottle of water with dresses off this nerve. Asians know the choke on the neck of that motel in Navalny's hotel room, where he stayed in Tomsk. Which is why he was likely already. I think he was poisoned already, and he drank water from that bottle, and he left traces off the nerve agent on the neck of the bottle. Either the bottle was poisoned and which is one of only felt ill already on the plane. So and we I also know how exactly they have a past this very significant. Ah, ah, bottle to the German experts. So Navalny's supporters entered his hotel room just An hour after his press secretary tweeted that Navalny has fallen ill and the plane has landed in the city of Omsk. They have entered this room on DH. They searched for any objects which navalny could could possibly touch. Or he could use to check whether they were poisoned or not, And they've all supposed to Video in their accounts showing how they were searching this room and how they were packing This bottle's in plastic bags, using gloves and transferring them thereafter to building Bond his supporters then I mean, what did they say about this? In terms of what? It changes? Ah, you know for the investigation. Well, in fact, the video surveillance system in the hotel where Navalny has state and the Russian investigative news outfit, Proact has reported that the recordings from this system has been taken off by somebody, apparently from somebody from the security services. And it would be really not difficult to trace who has been entering Navalny's room at that hotel and who has been placed in pockets of water in his hotel room? Because he apparently drank from the bottle, and that both of was poisoned. And it is possible to. Ah, connect those two and to realise how this bottle of water ended in his hotel room and who brought it there. S O. The significant thing is that nobody was poisoned Like, hours before he actually felt ill so that our execute shed some light on the Ah how exactly he was poisoned. Two. Experts say that it couldn't be a poison in the water because in this case he would be Dead if you will be ill, like in minutes, not in ours, but it actually is their part of the investigation on this thing, and they obviously are goingto work in it more and more, But they just told how exactly they have found this bottle and where the crisis of this notion occasions were.
Why forest fires in Siberia, Russia threaten us all
"In Siberia have been releasing record amounts of greenhouse gases, scientists say contributing to global warming. The fires, fueled by abnormally high temperatures have been burning as far north as the Arctic Circle. Moscow correspondent Steve Rosenberg has travelled to the remote Yakutia region in north eastern Russia to gauge the effects of climate change, both on local communities on on the planet. I've got a helicopter flying across northern Siberia. Not far from the Arctic Circle. Look down below, I could see forest stretching forever. But rising from the trees. Our rooms of thick smoke. Because record high temperatures here. Fueling Suresh spies. And that has implications but only for people who live in Siberia for the global climate. Thiss part of Russia is called. It is a huge region. Five times the size of France. Because of all its forests, people here cool. You could hear the lungs of the planet. Well, Judging by all the smoke, I can see our planet has a big problem. Like on the ground. We switch to an off road Russian bag that feels as tough as a tank. Plough through the thick undergrowth. Suddenly out of the window, I see a charred wasteland. Fire has reduced large and silver birch tow ash. We continue on foot with a group of forest Rangers. The range of Valentin tells me is getting hotter and hotter here every year, he spends nearly all his summers now fighting Forest vice When he's not firefighting. He's out hunting in Yakutia before a hunt, Valentin says. Traditionally, we light a campfire. We put pancakes and fermented horse milk by the flames as sacrifices to the spirit of the tiger to make the hunt go well. So a small fire is a source of good. It's the big ones that are bad for you was all right. That was Well, now we've reached a fire. It is incredibly hot here. Flames are licking the undergrowth and Dancing up the tree trunks. Sending Rooms of thick smoke into the air. This is going on across Siberia, a region which is now trapped in a vicious cycle of climate change, because rising temperatures Mean dr Forests and more forests fires like this one and more fires means more carbon emissions being pumped into the atmosphere. Andme or climate change. Two Rangers try to put out the flames using small water pumps. But as soon as one fire is out another sparks It's not just the visible burning. That's a problem. Underground fire is boring. The permafrost ground, which in places has been frozen for tens of thousands of years. That's releasing even Mohr greenhouse gases. Further north in another Siberian forest, local firefighter Even Zahara is filling his water pump from a lake. He's got a shovel, too, to smother any hint of flame recently even helped put out a big fire here that was threatening his village. They're fashionable. I never saw a summer like it even says we had no rain at all. The dry grass was like gunpowder, but it's permafrost Thaw ring that worries me. Most. Our village could end up underwater.

Oh first stemming off this alien invasion but the game still has a whole lot going for it like plenty of studies of show that playing chess can improve your focus. It can help you. Hone your decision making skills. Then of course it's a great way to strengthen your memory especially if you play it blindfolded I before we get to the mental benefits. Let's talk about some of the more surprising things we found out about the game. And maybe we'd never noticed before you know. One thing that stood out to me is how resilient the game is like it stands up to scrutiny more than just about any other game out there are people over. The years have tried to solve chess for for decades and decades but the game always seems to allude them. I mean there's always another move. You never considered a new way to win or even lose at chess and remember. That's true even after we built computers specifically designed to decode the game and released select the best possible move for millions and millions of different scenarios. Isn't he's not exactly what it means to salt chest like if we're able to compute every possible sequence of moves and counter moves and all these different forms of match can take then. Isn't the game effectively solved. That's actually the thing because even if you had the most powerful computer in the world it still wouldn't be able to calculate all the unique games that could be played late and this just seems unimaginable but the possibilities just scale up way too quickly so for example after both players have moved one time in a game of chess there are four hundred possible board setups but after the second of the turns the number of possible game shoots up to just under two hundred thousand now after three moves there are one hundred. Twenty one million possible outcomes and so on and so on until you get to the current best estimate for the total possible number of chess games which is a staggering ten to the one hundred and twentieth power so to put that number in perspective just a little bit. There was a great breakdown on that I've found from popular science. And here's what it says. There are only ten to the fifteenth. Total hairs on all the human heads in the world tend to the twenty-third grains of sand on earth and about ten to the eighty first atoms in the universe. Typical Chess Games is many times as great as all those numbers multiplied together an impressive feat for thirty two wooden pieces lined up on a board. That is unbelievable. You know when you look back at the kind of like endless complexity of the game you know I. It's really no wonder it gives our brains such a workout and actually read the study from a while back that found that experts who play chess actually used both sides of the brain. Well solving chess problems and not just the analytical right side. Oh well but this only happens in. I'm I'm guessing like really experienced players. That's right it's the researchers gathered eight international chess players and then eight novice players and they took. FM is brain scans while the subjects work their way through two different tasks and I identified geometrical shapes and then they had to determine whether or not the pieces on the chessboard. Were in a check situation. And the result from these tests tests were really unexpected. Because they showed that while the novice players had only used the left side of the brain to process this task the expert players had used both sides of the brain so this the lead researcher explained quote. Once the usual brain structures were engaged the experts utilized additional complementary structures in the other half to execute processes in perilla Carollo. Wow so did this dual processing improve the experts performance at all yet it actually made them much quicker at solving chess problems than novices. Where but it is is worth noting that the parallel processing only occurred during the chest problems and not during that geometry tasks so it really seems like all the extra practice that the experts had given their brains was was this nice boost but only when it came to chess? You know. It's interesting to hear that because I was actually reading about how playing a lot of chess can actually be a detriment to player sometimes sometimes rather than being beneficial to them and has on. What's because of something called the Einstein effect which scientific American describes as the brain's Raines tendency to stick with solutions? It already knows rather than look for potentially superior ones so scientists researching this effect really love using chess. Players says subjects. And that's because they provide a really clear way to see the effect inaction so as an example of this. Some studies present master chess players where the chessboard that has due to possible solutions. You've got this well known maneuver. That can win the game in five moves and a less common but actually much faster three step solution so the players were told to win the match in as few moves as possible but once they had spotted this familiar five step strategy they actually seemed unable to recognize the much quicker solution. And it wasn't that three step move was really obscure or anything like that but because those same players were actually presented with a similar setup for the three step move was the only way to win and then in that scenario the players recognize the strategy right away so in that first experiment it really was the Einstein long effect effect at work. And you know the players weren't able to see any of the other options because they have this cognitive bias for the move. They knew best really fascinating but I also like that even chessmaster can learn something to do better the next time around because like there are that many possibilities like I should think that's why so many schools invest in their own. Chess programs. I it's one of those rare hobbies that I can boost your cognitive ability while also teaching these coping skills like how to win or lose gracefully. Although I do have to say the one time my son got hit at school. It was in his first grade chess club and he came home with dirt on his face. And I was like Henry. How how that happened and he kinda gleefully said Oh? I took the second graders queen so so he kicked me in the face. Seems like he was okay with that he'd rather win. And there are so many places. He says where they're teaching. It really young kids like in Armenia. For instance chess is actually a required subject for every kid who's six years older and that's kind of awesome either even though it probably means the poor math teachers wound up pulling double duty and teaching chess as well right. Yeah but I have a feeling. It's worth it to them anyway. Because Armenian teacher explain chess trains seems logical thinking it teaches how to make decisions. Trains Memories Strengthens Willpower motivates children to win and teaches them how to deal with defeat. It's the only only school subject that can do all of this. I really love that idea. Well how about we knock out this fact off and then get Tristan. Show some of his opening moves. He's been perfecting.

Puncher had stabbed himself to death with two knives not one but two. I'm expert experiment. Director of the Moscow project in this is a special bonus episode of the asset between twenty seventeen in two thousand. Eighteen buzzfeed news posted a series of investigative pieces into suspicious Russian deaths in the United United Kingdom identifying at least fourteen people who us intelligence officials think were assassinated on British soil by Russian operatives. In fact buzzfeed has just released a book on these pieces by investigations editor. Heidi Blake titled Quote from Russia With Blood. The Kremlin's ruthless assassination program and Vladimir Putin secret war on the West with the buzzfeed stories. Highlight is that you. K- has become a focal point for Russian intelligence Agence Russian oligarch money has poured into London. They cool it the laundromats it was eastern Europe's biggest ever money laundering scheme involving fake fake British companies Russian banks and the courts in Moldova.

Bricks and mortar have become the currency of international crime one of UK's most prominent primarily teams Chelsea Football Club was purchased by Roman Abramovich and Russian money and influence has been linked to senior UK political figures ears in as Russian influence grew in the United Kingdom. So did the suspicious deaths in so did the brazenness of Russian intelligence operators. We'll start in two thousand sixteen with the death of Matthew. Puncher puncher was a British scientists and he had been the first to measure the dose of Radioactive Polonium. Used to kill Litvinenko around the time of his death. PUNCHER had been visiting the Mayak nuclear facility. Where the polonium had I been produced in Russia? The the Mayak facility's deep in the Russian Ural Mountains and surrounded by a huge exclusion zone. Because it's a nuclear lab that produces highly radioactive material that can kill people both fee described it as quote one of the most contaminated places on the planet. Puncher was there to study the effects of working with polonium neom on the workers at my ac but while there he was being followed in surveilled by Russian intelligence when he got back from his final trip his wife said he was depressed in soon after he was found stabbed to death when the police got the punters home there was blood everywhere but strangely there was no sign of struggle. The chairs hadn't even been knocked over a coroner ruled that he had been stabbed to death in the arms neck chest and abdomen with two different knives but that punch her himself had done it. Puncher had stabbed himself to death with two knives lives not one but two British. Investigators closed the case but US intelligence sources. Perhaps not quite buying that story. He told buzzfeed they think he was assassinated and that his death was linked to his work in Russia. So we have Alexander Litvinenko poisoned by Radioactive Cup of tea. We have a scientist to examine that poisoning stabbing himself to death a decade later. And now we'll go back a bit further to Alexander pair Piccinini. This is the affluent gated community in southern England which may be the latest Kremlin crime-scene to come to light. It was here that wealthy healthy Russian exile and whistle blower Alexander. Purplish knee dropped dead while jogging. Back in two thousand twelve. He was just forty four at the time. British police ruled thank foul play but now traces of an extremely toxic plant to the stomach appear to have been way back in episode five. We talked about the case of Sergei Magnitsky Back Nikki was a Russian lawyer who uncovered a two hundred thirty million dollar tax fraud. Scheme that benefited Kremlin officials. He he was arrested beaten in tortured and he ultimately died in jail. His death was not suspicious just horribly tragic for his work. Uncovering a huge quarter billion dollar. Russian government embezzlement scheme. Sergei magnitsky was thrown in prison without charges after being beaten and tortured denied medical medical treatment. He died in prison in two thousand nine. It was thirty seven years old but that tax fraud that he discovered was a big deal. Russian government officials and people close most of them were stealing vast sums of money in wandering that money overseas. How were they doing it? Where was it going and as it turns out purple each Ni knew the answers to these questions per pollini got his start writing software code and at one point had considered becoming a scientist but by the time the nineties rolled around and he had instead become a businessman in a financier in he fell in with well to put it lightly the wrong crowd? He began working with people who were allegedly laundering. Money on behalf of the Russian mob in a lot of that money. That magnitsky discovered was being fraudulently stolen in laundered it was being wandered in moved moved eventually to a company that was tied to para-police knee so just to be clear. Russian government officials and Russian organized crime syndicates. Were wandering two hundred and thirty million clean dollars out of the country in para-police knee was quite literally holding all the receipts. We understand Mister Pechiney fled Russia fearing for his life after allegedly falling out with a criminal gang which included corrupt officials. He brought with him here to Britain a stash of highly sensitive tiff documents. These allegedly show how Russian officials transferred millions of euros to Swiss bank accounts the money just part of the proceeds of a huge tax fraud sometime passed in one or both of the following things happened para police. And he had a falling out with those he was working with breath and para-police knee had a change of heart about the deep level of corruption in Russia. Whatever his motives were he fled to Britain and he wanted to handover over all those receipts to the proper authorities and he did? He began talking with Swiss authorities handing over documents and allowing them to freeze accounts with with at least ten million dollars in laundered funds but then no surprise. He began receiving death threats. His name was on a Russian mob. Hitlist he knew oh he was in danger and he began behaving strangely in November. Twenty twelve. He took a mysterious trip to Paris leaving his wife and child at home. Hang out for a few you days with the Ukrainian fashion designer writes in Paris just two days before he collapse. Stay in this five star hotel around lunchtime. That day he was joined joined by twenty two year olds. Ukrainian design a book to hotel rooms but only stayed in one of them. According to the woman he was with. There wasn't anything super suspicious. The the trip. He took her shopping and she said he seemed stressed. She said during his time in Paris he will with it. He was worried he was. He seemed off. She later said they spent their last evening together at this Sushi restaurant. He told her the food tasted strange and sent the dish back when they return to that hotel. He was sick three times in the bathroom. He got back to London on the morning of November tenth. Twenty twelve. He went for a jog earlier that year. As part of a life insurance policy he had been checked out by a doctor in received a clean bill of health so this healthy forty four year old man. Dan went for a run and then all of a sudden he collapsed on the side of the road. He was throwing up in passed out and bystanders tried to give him CPR but he died and police said he died of natural causes. They said it was. I'm sure you guessed it by now. A heart heart attack but because they didn't know Alexander purplish knees background. The British police didn't immediately treat this case as suspicious that meant key. He evidence including his entire stomach contents were flushed away before they could be fully tested. Whatever the cause of death critics point to other mistakes stikes made in this case phone messages? Were not checked. CCTV was deleted before it could be. Viewed police lost all the data. They copied from a family laptop over two years later though his life. Insurance Company dropped a bombshell. They had hired an outside expert. who had found evidence of traces of a deadly toxin emperor? Police knees stomach what they found. Traces of Gel semion plant which produces a poison which is extremely really rare and very hard to trace. The toxin was apparently from a rare. Chinese plant nicknamed heartbreak grass. Because if if you eat it you go into cardiac arrest a lawyer for the life. Insurance Company said that it is quote unknown weapon of assassination by Chinese in Russian contract killers. Now everyone involved in this case is at odds with each other the British authorities say there was no foul play the French authorities who are involved.

The shirt the shrift of what I'm trying to say is that we get far we Cognitive distance podcast is also You know they are not you know under the umbrella of puzzle thunderstorms I just want to give them a special shout Too because they are part of the vulgarity for charity and they do it along with the puzzle guys and see so call you and tell you I got. I got yelled at for a long time. Now I'm just just get no it's important. You know they. They are every bit as much a part of raising money for charity. And this is a great show. Great Show great sorry. Sorry that I said it's me this. I said puzzled thunderstorm. And that's that's on me. That's all right. Just WanNa give those guys tune into an upcoming cardis not true. It's coming but I'll be on and it was a lot of fun it'll be really funny. So Yeah Charlotte to those guys. We love him. Okay okay You have a quick Andrew was wrong I do have an injury was wrong. Only about eighty seven thousand people pointed out On the basis of last last Thursday and Fridays episodes that I called Gordon. Sandline the ambassador to Ukraine and he was of course the ambassador to the EU. Which makes it and I knew that? And Look. You know there's a lot of stuff going on But mea culpa on that and as you eighty seven thousand people have helpfully pointed out all right like Ukraine is not in the e U so it you know it just adds to the the the overall you know why. Why is Rick Perry here? Why is Rudy Giuliani here? And you could add that. You know why Gordon Somboon there so I was like the EU wants them right. I mean I think there. That's part of the like pro. Political process has been are they going is. UK Crane going to be cozier to Russia or kind of go along the EU route. So I mean yeah kind of makes sense as in the mix but yeah it is. It is weird. Yeah but he shouldn't be directing policy. Absolutely yeah we we can have some important things going on in the EU right now. So you know you'd think that would yeah. He doesn't have enough to do. You're saying with Brexit. Yeah so anyway I was definitely wrong on that. Sorry Breaking News. I literally as we recording this thirty seconds ago. I will not out the person but I got a A really really important text message that said while not confirmed it has been reported that Motley crue will be teaming up with DEF LEPPARD and poison for a monster concert toward next year. All right I thank you dog about my sharks then like I talk about your shirt off the worst team in hockey for no reason in and now they're on a nice five game win streak almost back to five hundred so there you go there. We've updated everybody on the important things. So let's say let's talk law here. We go what are we. What are we talking about today? We've got Some some more info and stuff to talk about regarding embryos and freezing stuff all that good stuff we got some actual scientists who wrote US in other people wrote us in who've gone through the process we got some stuff there and then our main segment we're going to be talking about something called lie heap. Keep that I've never heard of that Andrew's going to explain to us was In overton window shift of extraordinary proportions because this I I here was a was a Reagan initiative but now all of a sudden is probably being labeled as comedy liberal territory. I'm guessing that Yup okay cool so so that'll be fun nice uplifting and then the c segment is a wildcard. We'll see if we get to it. I don't know Andrew depends on how many Bullet Points Indra has and if he gets through the types. I'll be a wildcard segment. We'll see so that's our agenda for today. Why don't we get going? Yeah let's do it okay. Okay so where do you WANNA start on the human embryo stuff. Yeah a couple so this was really really happy about our discussion in an episode three thirty on the Connecticut decision regarding embryos I do want to bracket we occasionally Fell into some gendered language in that that episode and And I we both apologized for that. And we'll try and do better going forward. But as as part of the legal discussion we had a bunch of people right in in including a couple of scientists who work with early human embryonic development and a really great Letter that we got from a among that that underwent. IVF sent us a copy of her blank contract so she has some insight into the whole you know was this. Was this real consideration. When was it something that you bargained for? With respect to the check boxes and everything so I thought we would We take a look at some listener feedback for the a segment. I right yeah well when you have the smartest listeners in the world like we do that's good feedback all right and we're going to start with listener. Jonathan Golob who says yes good morning. IVF and pre embryos came up in three thirty. I may publish scientific authors specifically on early human embryonic development and I figured I could point you to some resources the define some of the basic biology Gilbert's developmental biology is the dominant text on early Mammalian development. IVF The F. generally saves fertilized embryos at the blastocyst stage. Although with advancing ivy tech is now possible to freeze back unfertilised eggs and sometimes sometimes freezing can occur. It's at a slightly earlier stage. A blast assist is like a beach ball with a teeny beanbag or inner cell mass inside at the bottom autom. The outer encasement of cells can become all of the supporting structure of a pregnancy the amniotic sac placenta etc.. The inner cell mass can go on to to make all of the tissues of a human being the blastocyst stage is where the pre embryo waits until implantation occurs at sometimes does not before proceeding hence a good time to try to freeze now and then thought later just before implant. The blasts stage has a few interesting attributes. A last assist is not an individual so if the blast assist is a whole splits or the inner cell mass splits into two two beanbags instead of one identical twins result this is more likely likely to happen in. IVF compared to natural pregnancies in quotes many perhaps most blasted failed to develop into a live birth in both IVF or natural natural pregnancy and the inner cell mass cells from discarded embryos can be turned into embryonic stem cells. These cells can be expanded and retain change the ability to become any cell type in the body this allows for experimental therapy such as repairing hearts after heart attacks thus this is a possible disposition of leftover frozen embryos no longer needed for reproduction. Hope this is useful Jonathan. Yeah well that's a nice biology lesson there for sure. A lot OUGHTA stuff. I didn't know there actually just being bags didn't know well ended and it Answers starts starts to answer the the pre-embryo question right that I asked as to as to why the court seized on that. And again if you're thinking about this in the context of off the abortion discussion learning that the IVF blastocyst contain both sort of the material. That could make one or more human beings as well as the material. That makes the amniotic sac the placenta. Everything else all early in one mass right like I. I thought that the you know the mean bag with the beach ball around it. I thought that was that was super helpful in understanding the science as that sort of plays in with the The law and the politics of this and and it totally makes sense as to why the court used that phrase pre embryo at at At this point even though and and let her. I'm GonNa read from Valerie. Smith I think speaks to why it it sort of stuck out at me and that is that in. Ivf and I told you. I had some firsthand experience with this. The terminology that's generally used is embryo. Right Pre embryo and and Valerie speaks to that so so let me So let me go to to to Valerie's email So she like I said she attached a blank version of for contract which we're going to attach in the show notes and this really speaks to the question that the Connecticut Supreme Court you know overruled overruled the trial court on and said No. This is the fact that they're check boxes does not mean that. It's not a valid contract not valid consideration and and And that's that's really where we're Valerie comes out in her discussion of this. So she says regarding the contract for IVF patients attached to blank. I my contract that my husband and I had to fill out and have notarized before we could start the process Our clinic offered more options than the four listed in today's episode such as donate to scientific research and donate donate towards clinical quality control and training. I personally appreciated the simplicity of the check box system and found that in no way did it made make the contract less official official so that was interesting and say I'm an IVF regarding the process of IVF and how we get from the initial fertilized IVF to a frozen embryo. There are several things that extreme pro-lifers might take issue with I a little bit of nomenclature. What's frozen isn't an embryo blastocyst and we just heard the science on and A blastocyst only becomes an embryo wants the amniotic sac develops at approximately week five of pregnancy. I don't know why in the I've contract world blast assists called embryos the procedure to transfer a blast assists into a woman's uterus is even called an embryo transfer which makes no sense. Aw also a frozen blastocyst definitely contains more than one cell. I do understand the point. Andrew was making this so that's another injury was wrong makeup on that one Secondly not all fertilized eggs. Make it to freeze the day following my egg retrieval procedure. I got a call from a fertility clinic telling me that I it was one of the lucky ones and that all eighteen of.

"The president United States sees it as a real possibility that he could be peach after Democrats take control of the house of the word tonight from a source close to him. The source also saying the president isn't certain it will happen. But he's expressed concern that Jeff Toobin carry Cordeiro, Steve Cortez and Robby Robby at the same time. We're hearing the president thinks there's a possibility could be impeached. It's also reporting that the White House's adopting a kind of shrug shoulder strategy for the molar findings. They believed that that most of the GOP base voters will believe whatever the president tells them to believe there. Right. I worry that the right to be honest with you because I just want to pick up on a point that Kerry made just before the break that if we focus on all these details, sometimes we lose the bigger picture. I think that the scope of what's going on here. Both the degree to which the Trump campaign was committing crimes the degree to which the president himself was part of those crimes, but also the degree to which the Russians were infiltrating the Trump campaign, the NRA other Republican. Groups I think that's going to continue to expand. And if we if we get bogged down in all the individual constituent pieces, we're gonna lose sight here that we had a major national security incident. These these these influence are these these influences may still be embedded in our in our our political fabric here in our country, and that should be really disturbing to anybody. So I think everybody needs to wake up pullback look at the big picture. And then obviously, we need to wait and see what sort of details are in Muller's report, and we need to track. These other indictments and investigations that are going on through the US attorneys office. Steve to that point. Does it make? I mean, does it raise any concerns with you that I think by C N N's cow now sixteen people in Trump world had contacts with Russians by there during the decision, right? My my answer is yes. And no. So you go to we need more. Light shine upon that. Yes, I believe we do. And so yes, there's some worry there. Some of it. Did it did not work at all? Because for instance, it was during the transition when it's incredibly normal to have those kind of conversations with foreign powers once you already elected. But look, I think we need to we need to learn more. And I would say to those of us who support the president. We can't be complacent. Clearly, it's not time to have an exoneration party. But then I would also caution. Those who can't stand the president, including a lot of people on the congress people like congressman Schiff who are ready right now to to put him in jail suit and put him in a cell. I would caution that we haven't seen anything even close to criminality. But look, I do think to your opening point. I think at this point impeachment is a given. I really I believe that before the election if the Democrats took control now, they've taken control, I think that's a fate accompli. It is happening..

"Second rate burglary this is an ongoing attack by america's number one adversary on our democracy dan coats he referenced earlier has been saying this attack is continuing right now so this is a major national security issue and i think in fact one of the reasons that this indictment came out today was that rosenstein and muller wanted to send the message to the russian the russians that coates was talking about because they knew trump wooden send it in other words they are saying look this is serious we know it is serious we are treating it like the national security threat that it is and even if the president doesn't mention it rest assured we are going to follow up on it and we're going to press forward i think a lot of the republicans that you talked about are afraid of how that story plays out because unlike robert muller they have lost the plot here they think it's political it's not political this is about america's national security and an ongoing threat that has not being addressed by this administration david from one of the great overlooked questions for which we don't actually have an answer is a two to president trump why are you meeting with latimer there has never been a white house rationale for the meeting there's never been an agenda identified for this meeting of it we understand we are accustomed to heads of state meeting with heads of state but we don't actually know why this meeting is taking place and we especially do not know why donald trump doesn't want anyone else in the room we don't know and we do know align i've been using for two years now is this the trump russia stories the story of many secrets but no mysteries there are a lot of details we don't know but the central core of the story we've known that since the summer of two thousand sixteen we're going to have to take a break here david rothkopf thank you for joining our discussion really appreciate it up next john podesta the former chairman of the hillary clinton presidential campaign will join us we will ask him what it felt like today when he read the indictments precise description of how the russians stole his email defendants access to email accounts of volunteers and employees ease of a us presidential campaign including the campaign chairman starting in march of two thousand sixteen that campaign chairman was john podesta the chairman of hillary clinton's campaign for president and john podesta joins our discussion now from california and a jump at us the first of all thank you very much for joining us on this really important night and i just want to read for the audience to do the portion of the indictment that describes how the russians attack you and how they got to you the indictment says that on march nineteenth two thousand sixteen a russian military officer in his co conspirators created and sent a spear phishing email to the chairman of the clinton campaign they used the account john three five six g h at an online service that abbreviated lengthy website addresses referred to as a shortening service they used the aqap to mask a link contained in the spear phishing email which directed the recipients to a gru created website the military officer altered the appearance of the sender email address in order to make it look like the email was a security notification from google a technique known as spoofing instructing the user to change his password by clicking the embedded link those instructions were followed on or about march twenty first twenty sixteen the officers and their coconspirators stole the contents of the chairman's email account which consisted of over fifty thousand emails and john podesta i can't help but wondering a wonder what it felt like today when you read that portion of the email with that line that says the those instructions were followed do you remember that moment where you clicked on john three five six g h well lawrence there's a little bit more of a backstory to that but i think the the general observations of this have been well known that there was a spear phishing attempt it evolved my assistant in in my office but at any rate what's important is at the heart of this was a conspiracy which is laid out in this edite ment crimes were committed by officers of russian intelligence that was done at the direction of ladder putin as our intelligence community has discerned there were allegations of money laundering of.
