"That endorsement comes ahead of a rally in Youngstown, Ohio, next Saturday, where Donald Trump will be appearing. As you know, he's a big supporter. That is the former president is, of JD Vance, the Senate candidate there on the Republican side, running against democratic congressman Tim Ryan. Well, listen to when Ryan was asked by W FMJ. If President Biden, his leader of the party, should run for president again in 2024. My hunch is that we need new leadership across the board, Democrats, Republicans. I think it's time for a generational move for new leaders on both sides. I think the environment politically across the country is poisonous. And people, people, I think, want some change. Well, that made it a bit awkward today as Joe Biden was touching down with Air Force One in Ohio, nonetheless, the president did give a shout out to Tim Ryan and his remarks today. Thanks to the bipartisan group of Ohio congressional delegation here today. Tim Ryan, thank you for your leadership always representing this and working people. And speaking of President Biden, he went to the Democratic National Committee's annual summer meeting near D.C. here in Maryland, and tried to rally the faithful, get the troops pumped up for this midterm season. Here again, you hear Joe Biden making this in his mind a true choice election. Not every Republican is a migrant Republican. Not every Republican embraces the extreme ideology, but the extreme set of Republicans has chosen to go backwards full of anger, violence, hate and division. And that's what their game is. In the days and weeks ahead, we will be paying a ton of attention on this podcast to the money, the messages, the campaign ads, the travel schedules, and of course those very important candidate debates that will be dominating much of the fall.

Brandon hardy was also convicted of felony drug charges for having fentanyl cocaine, marijuana and Suboxone strips on him, along with cash and a digital scale to weigh drugs. Police caught up with hardy at the restaurant after he took off running a red light and hitting two cars along route ten and mountain road. Another person in hardy's car told police his name, and they used a cell phone to find him at the restaurant. When police tried to arrest him, they say that's when he bit one of them.

"Dot com and schedule your free estimate today It's three 11 here on WTO The second round of France's presidential election is set for Sunday and it will be a rematch of centrist incumbent Emmanuel Macron and far right challenger marine le pen Ten other candidates were eliminated in the first round of voting on April 10th The political balance of Europe is on the line here as well as possible unity in the west in the Ukrainian fight against Russia And while Macron easily beat le pen in a runoff 5 years ago Sunday's vote is expected to be much closer And joining us now is Politico's editorial director for global growth Ryan heath Ryan thanks for joining us this afternoon A pleasure So just how close is this race now A little less close looking at it today compared to a week ago So Macron is ahead 55 45 in our polling aggregator And it was 53 47 a week ago So he's in a little bit more of a comfortable position but we learn from Brexit We learn from some of the mistakes people made around the 2016 U.S. election that small chance of winning is a real chance of winning So people should be paying attention to this vote Marine le pen as we mentioned didn't do so well against Macron 5 years ago How did she manage another close the gap this time around Her big success has been in focusing on cost of living issues which French voters say are their most pressing concern And Emmanuel Macron has been involved in some of the high politics around the Russia war He has been having a big focus on climate but made some missteps there that really did hit people in their pockets and marine le pen just had a laser focused thing under the radar focusing on these cost of living issues And that allowed her really to creep up in a way that even Macron didn't expect Right Ryan some Americans might say well what does French politics have to do with me Why should I care But there is the issue of Ukraine and le pen's friendly relationship with Vladimir Putin Exactly And we used to say the same thing about Ukraine and look at the way everyone's awareness changed over the last 8 weeks So Macron made a direct frontal attack on le pen in the presidential debate over in France last night because she took a loan from a Russian bank connected to the Kremlin back in 2015 She still has not finished paying off that loan And he basically accused her of being on Putin's payroll I think she has stepped away a little bit from Putin So that's not a 100% clear picture that Macron paints there but it's very clear She's not as supportive of NATO as the rest of the French political system is If you want to do the sort of sanctions that we see now and keep them rolling or step them up it's going to be very hard to do if marine le pen is president Though it's kind of like death by attrition of a lot of these alliance structures and systems and makes it harder for the European Union to be a union We'll be watching closely over the weekend Ryan thanks for your help You're welcome Ryan heath Politico's editorial director for global growth Get.

"Churches in lviv and western Ukraine At one church there were a couple of big poster boards with photos of Ukrainian soldiers killed fighting Russia's invasion of Crimea and Donetsk back in 2014 And that's a reminder of what you hear a lot from Ukrainians here Which is for them they have been fighting Russia for 8 years The war now is just on a much much larger scale That was NPR's Ryan Lucas in western Ukraine Ryan thanks to you and to your team and we certainly wish you the best and everyone there Thank you Russian president Vladimir Putin has called the economic sanctions imposed by the United States and other Western countries quote akin to a declaration of war But President Biden says Putin chose this war in his country will bear the consequences and a priority among the administration's targets will be those who have built their wealth through close ties to Putin Here's what President Biden said during his State of the Union address I say to the Russian oligarchs and the corrupt leaders who built billions of dollars off this violent regime no more That's where he announced a new task force called klepto capture to enforce sanctions and seize oligarchs assets like luxury real estate yachts and private jets worth hundreds of millions of dollars at least 8 oligarchs have been added to a U.S. sanctions list along with members of their families and travel restrictions were imposed on 19 others and 47 of their associates We wanted to know more about the effect these sanctions could have and how they will be enforced so we call palm asaro He's a congressional foreign policy adviser who specializes in sanctions illicit finance and counter corruption He's with us now Mister Massaro thanks so much for joining us Oh my pleasure Thank you so much for having me Could you just give us a sense of the scope of these sanctions targeting oligarchs I was wondering how they compare to what's been levied in the past And what does that tell you about what the administration's intentions are Oh for sure So this is totally new We are breaking ground here and maybe some of the most important ground we've ever broken We have been calling for many years for sanctioning oligarchs going after the oligarchs who are really the appendages of Putin's regime Putin's now rogue state in the west However there's always been a little bit of hesitancy to do this given how powerful they are their lawyers their lobbyists the billions of dollars that they control But it seems all of that has been kind of wiped off the board and we are going for it now I want to dig into a little bit more about who's been targeted and why but I want to pick up on something you just said which is that people like yourself I know that analysts in the CIA we've talked to a number of people in the last week say they've been calling for these kinds of measures for years so these people their wealth their possible criminal dealings connection to president Putin is not new So why now why did it take Russia invading Ukraine to take these steps Well yeah I mean that's the great question is how we got to here with the attack on Kyiv and this all out war on Ukraine Even the west which had been sort of asleep for so long almost in almost wishful thinking or self imposed denial about who Putin is Has woken up in a massive way and said okay enough is enough We are going to target this state Like we've never targeted before and target this tyrant Like we've never targeted him before Do you have a sense of why specific people were targeted Yeah so I mean these are oligarchs that are very close to Putin I think that right now we're thinking in terms of who do we have the most evidence on Who has the most obvious assets Who would do the most damage to the Putin rogue state It's very important that we do this in coordination with our allies and I think we saw that because so many of these oligarch assets are held in London They're yachts that are held in Europe So I think that we need to emphasize what a difficult task we have before us There's been now 20 years of financial anonymity anonymous trust anonymous shell companies You know it's not like we can magically snap our fingers and get all this stuff We don't really know where a lot of it is either but we're gonna find out Okay can I just ask a question though because one of the New York newspapers has actually printed a map with some of the properties held by some of these figures with names attached some of them have two and three multi-million dollar properties in the same neighborhood So I guess I'm just wondering why I have a New York newspaper has a map with these people's properties listed on it Why doesn't the U.S. government know where they are So the property is the physical property is going to be the easiest stuff to get Some of the stuff that's harder to get and is actually worth a lot more Are the slush funds the anonymous bank accounts and so on and so forth It's not something that you can just do immediately Either very strong protections against the seizure of property by the government in the United States And for good reason you know you have a right to your property in this country and a very important right But I also can see where regular citizens see where somebody is say driving across state lines with a large amount of cash and their vehicle is seized And the attitude by law enforcement is we'll sort it out later Or that people are taken into custody with properties that seem to be suspicious and they are those properties are ceased And the law enforcement says we'll sort it out later And I think a lot of regular people would wonder why it is that some guy driving across state lines with $20,000 in a suitcase can have his property seized and the courts will sort it out later but these multi millionaires in some cases billionaires enjoy this protection you see my question I see your question and I want to tell you this is what makes the oligarchs so dangerous It's not fair I mean these guys have billions of dollars to throw at this stuff The British this was in a parliament intelligence report they lose cases against these individuals because they can't finish cases They literally run out of money before they can finish the case These are state actors you know with multiple billions of their disposal that have been told by Putin and given been empowered by Putin and control state owned and state influenced Russian companies and huge stakes in other sort of investments who are here to subvert our democracy and subvert our ecommerce and the rule of law and so on and so forth So if you screw up a legal process against these guys they'll take it all the way Before you let you go there it just sounds to me as though you're saying this is a very lengthy process And so if that's the case how will this be helpful in the current crisis Yeah so many people are literally being slaughtered So what is the endgame goal which seemed to me to demand accountability in the long term But is there any near term benefit to this Yeah there is And this is where the sanctions piece and the sort of ability to seize and then forfeit down the line right Comes from is you can in the short term we can disable these individuals In the long term we're going to be able to get this money And then I also will say that there is at least one Bill floating through Congress right now that would allow essentially a special authority to confiscate this property given the kind of wartime nature of what's going on It would be a temporary authority to move more quickly on these things so that you can get to go from sanction to seizure to forfeiture more quickly That was a congressional foreign.

"Uh, you know, if you're a candidate for a job in one of those locations you've got here. Pick And so the balance of power has shifted over the year or so, from where employers, you know, we're basically dealing the cards to workers. Having more of that power and the challenge, I think for enterprises, businesses, employers and managers. In the future. Let's say the next 12 18 months is really going to be, uh, to hire, uh, to the extent that they need to do that, and to retain the workers that they want a need to retain, But, you know, as I say, with respect to the inflation or wage issue, one person's wage pressures another person's money in the bank, right? And so, you know, when Federal Reserve chairman Your own. Powell is talking about wage pressures. He's looking at that from a vantage point of what will we have to raise interest rates or remove accommodation? But the other part of that is, you know, we've gone through decades here in the United States of a income and wealth inequality. And so you really do want to have that those issues addressed and that's one of the it turns out to be one of the goals of the Federal Reserve as well.

A Big Week for Global Tech Policy
"New chair of the federal trade commission a raft of bipartisan legislation aimed at big tech and an agreement to collaborate with the european union. It's been a pretty eventful week in terms of global tech policy here to break down what all happened and what the landscape looks like going forward is our policy reporter ryan tracy. Hey ryan thanks for coming back on the show things for me okay. So let's start with the f. T. c. biden named the prominent big tech critic. Lena con as fdic chair you know. We talked about this earlier in the week. With our colleague brent kendall but remind us of the significant of khan's appointment. She's been very clear that she has concerns about the behavior of big companies in a lot of sectors tech. It's been a particular focus for her confirmation hearing she basically said everything's on the table in terms of big tech. Senators asked her a number of questions about areas where the ftc could become more aggressive in terms of looking at the marketplace for news or looking at the marketplace for a smartphone apps all these different areas where we've heard some concerns about the impact of big tech and her answer was almost invariably. Yes to those questions now. There are limits to the ftc's power but mistaken has an expansive view of what that power is and so we expect her to push those limits and so does this signal sort of shift from the obama years to the biden administration potentially signals a much more aggressive approach to antitrust policy. And that's obviously a big deal for the largest tech companies. Who are under. A lot of antitrust scrutiny. Right now and it's kind of amazing when you step back you know. They had a lot of power under the obama administration and a lot of influence and had the biden administration asked for who they would have picked to lead the federal trade commission. Liikanen think it's fair to say would not have been near the top of their list. Just given that a lot of things critical of tech companies in the past so the fact that the biden administration chose her clearly shows their influence is more limited than it used to be.

Podcast Advertising and Digital Identity With Rishabh Jain
"In september. Twenty twenty there was a major shakeup in data collection which seemed to market trent alexander article on the subject called does the loss of digital. Id impact podcasts. Advertising that covered the trends and its effect on the podcast advertising industry and it's linked in the episode details to bring down what this means for digital and digital will handle looking more. like podcast. I spoke to reshape. Jane formerly of libraries the people at library experts at data collection and data stewardship and workshop was kind enough to lend his expertise. Rashad thank you so much for joining me here today. On the sound profitable podcasts. It's a pleasure to be your ryan. Thanks for having me. Yeah and so you know you have had a chance to work together for a little while now in different companies i've been at and so you're over at live ramp which is really cool and the reason i wanted to pull you into this conversation today. Is we're going to talk about the loss of digital ide- that everybody's so freaked out about in the whole advertising ecosystem and we're going to talk about how it relates to podcasting so to start things off as you're the expert on the article was really more about what the space is overall in. Not just podcasting. Could you give us a little bit of background on. What's going on with this concept of the loss of digital id and what identity. Which i believe is what's coming next. is is really all about. Yeah for sure. So there have been this slow movement and announced become really big with chrome of losing digital. Id's so actually the very first one was safari. You know it's really hard for advertisers to work with safari and then fire. Fox implemented something similar. So it's really hard. Fratto has toured with fire. Fox that you know people. I think got used to that and so had we. We don't talk about that as much. But then when google chrome announced that they're going to remove third party cookie at the start up. Twenty twenty two is essentially time line that they gave. That became a big deal because was started to happen at chrome is essentially more than half of people's browsing. And so when you remove the third party cookie you basically removed the main identifier that people use today to do advertising. So what i mean by that for those of you listening. Who are you to advertising is. There's this small snippet of code or a basically a small file that gets written onto your browser so literally onto chrome any. No a lot of people know this. Because there's this thing clear. Cookies clear cash so what these companies do is they actually write an identifier so you not something arbitrary. Abc one-two-three and that allows them when you go to different websites to see that. It's the same browser visiting those websites. Enough i'm using my computer and i. I go to a clothing website so clothing dot com and then after that i go to a magazine a magazine dot com than the clothing. Company can advertise to me on the magazine website. Because i have the same cookie right. They can identify that. It's the same browser being used. When i go from one to the other and now that chromos getting rid of net. That's going to be a really big problem for for advertisers. So that's what most people are upset about recently. Very interestingly apple decided that they're going to actually ask a question about whether or not the user wants for the company to track them with with identifiers writes Jail which is also going to throw a similar wrench into the mix
Tips on buying a TV for the Super Bowl
"This is the best time of the year for me. Because it's almost time for the super bowl and my team the kansas city chiefs trying to go back to back and defeat. Tom brady and the tampa bay buccaneers to get their second straight super bowl title as washington. Football team fan. I am in misery right now because we haven't been to a super bowl since i don't know forever but anyway it's also a great time of year to shop for tv. Traditionally the days leading up to the super bowl come just behind black friday and holiday sales of the most tv purchases across the us. That's right it's. It's a good time to upgrade your tv or display and for some more insights. Were lucky enough to have our colleague ryan. Who is the managing editor for electronics. Reviewed. hey ryan thanks for being with us. Thought you might have some advice to share with shoppers. Who might be thinking about getting a new. Tv with the big game coming up this weekend. Hey guys So fun to be here. I am very upset because you're a cheese fan. And i'm a broncos fan and I am now looking down. The spiral of losses for maybe. I don't know the rest of our football lives. Because patrick mahomes is probably gonna pay for twenty years. But that's not what we're here to talk about. I suppose we should talk about it if we might even lose breath you daren't chiefs fans anyway. It is a great time to buy a tv. There are few great times in the year. But why this is such a great time to buy a tv is because there are really good deals as these new. Tv's are coming out. They are trying to get these quote unquote old. Tv's off of shelves or out of their internet stockpiles so they are wheeling and dealing. Somebody's tv's and another good thing about why now is a great time. Particularly after twenty twenty is a lot of the. Tv's in two thousand twenty some of those new features that people look for future-proof tv like two point one hdmi of variable refresh rates for gaming. So you're actually getting a lot of the complete package in a tv. That is you know has an older year date but that really doesn't matter. It's like buying a car at the end of the year. Or you know in january if you can get on the shelves. You're going to get a really good deal on it so one of the biggest questions. It always comes up when you're buying a tv is how big do you go. What advice do you give consumers who are trying to figure out the right size. Tv to buy all the advice. I usually give consumers is if you think it's probably a little too big then you are probably right on the money because i have never talked to somebody who bought you know a fifty five or sixty five inch tv And then we're really upset. About how big. The picture looks and especially now when you can't go to a movie theater. People are loving these bigger screens now. Of course there's an aesthetic. You know thing to balance here whether or not. It's just gonna look too darn big for your living room but other than that again. You're not gonna be upset by having a bigger brighter picture. That's a that's a good answer. That's what i always tell my friends and my wife. Also if you're going to buy a tv don't short out. Can i mean if you can afford. It gets to the point. How much should people spend. I've done a little research on this. And the average person spends under four hundred dollars on the tv. I would like to spend a little bit more when i buy my next one. What would you recommend people. The average person spend ryan. Well you know it really does depend on what you're looking for but again if you're looking for that big punch you don't have to spend a crazy amount of because there are so many new technologies and some really up and coming companies. A lot of people have probably heard about. Tcl's six series tv by now. If you're shopping at all it is sort of the quintessential roku tv that people love to get it. Packs a bunch of performance punch into a very nice price point however if you are looking to get something even bigger and you look into say around that lower price point around four hundred but you know maybe you can go a little bit higher you can get. Tcl's four series which is not quite as good performance wise but it is going to opera four k. It is going to offer hdr which is going to give you that brightness and a wider color gamut and it's going to pop a little bit more and you can get a seventy five inch model of that right now For instance on best buy for six hundred and thirty bucks. Six hundred thirty dollars i mean. Can you imagine we've been around a while. You imagine getting tv that size for like anything less than three grand even five years ago. I'm not. I'm not gonna do the math exactly but it's it's pretty wild. How low it's gotten. It really is incredible And you mentioned best buy. There's an unfortunately in the world. Tv buying we've lost a lot of local tv shops or audio video shops So a lot of people do their buying online. But as we're getting close to the game it seems like you may want to think about going local at this point right. Well you could. I you know i think that is a great point. It'd probably depends on how close you are to a prime shipper if you're going to do it from amazon but one thing to do and i did this recently with a different product purchase. Is you can shop on best buy and then order it to pick up in store. They'll usually do curbside avoids the pandemic issue they can. They will bring it right out to your car and slap it in the back and then you're good to go so i think that's if you're looking to stop right now right before the game. That's probably your best way to go ryan. Thanks again for being with us and for the listeners. Out there working. They find out more info on buying a tv for the super bowl. Yeah we've got Reviews on many of these. Tv's on review dot com. You can also check out our best of tv list and sliver other best of that have Show all the great deals and compare all these. You can kind of you know you. You do your shopping right from home and then hopefully get it right before the
The Big Story
Nielsen Plans Major TV Ratings Revamp By 2024 To Reflect Streaming’s Impact
"So coming in two thousand twenty four a new look nielsen currency. That's right earlier this week. The measurement giant laid out. Its grand plan over the next couple of years to basically overhaul. It's tv currency into one. That is cross media measuring all video platforms. It's called nielsen. One would like to give a lot of crap at tech and media companies calling their consolidated stacks. One but i guess what else are you going to call it right to us or to nielsen anyway. Nielsen one is latest launch q. Four twenty twenty two and if all goes planned fully transition as the industry's cross media currency of choice by fall. Twenty twenty four. I'm ryan joe managing editor of addicts danger and with me is alison shift senior editor of ad exchanger erin and with us as our special guest is scott brown. Gm of audience measurement at nielsen scott. Hey ryan thanks for having me. I'm actually a frequent Listener to cast cool to join joining today so excited to have a discussion here. So things are having a great to have you You guys actually had recent news in november. You guys updated your currency with non panel data from dish direct tv and video. And so. I was just wondering if you can kind of contextualized that within the new announcement that you're overhauling the currency entirely. Sure absolutely so what. We announced earlier this week. Dubbed nielsen one. And you can give me as much crap as you want about that. But i do like the name because it is simple and it does describe what we are doing and what we announced earlier. This week is we are working towards a new product that will ultimately bring together nielsen's linear measurement of television with measurement across streaming and digital services. And what that means is that in the future. The numbers that yeltsin produces that Feeds into industry buying and selling systems that drives about a hundred billion dollars of annual. Advertising transactions will be fully cross platform which means our traditional businesses really coming together with digital offerings. And to your question around what we announced a few weeks ago is really one of the first steps in that transition because what we announce a few weeks ago is that not only are. We bringing in data across video dish and direct. Tv as you had mentioned but the reason we're doing that is we're going to begin enabling measurement of addressable advertising and targeting. That is starting to come to live television. And so those partners we are working closely with They are the ad tech provider than we are. The measurement company obviously To essentially bring compr- -bility with addressable advertising that is growing in television with the linear Traditional mechanism of advertising. And the reason why that is important in why is a strong linked to kind of where we're going for full cross platform. Is that what it means. Is that nielsen. For the first time will have more flexible way for providing reach and frequency across both addressable and linear on the television screen which is a first step towards really opening this opt to bring the world's together across the streaming and mobile platform exposure. So that you know the second step would be as you mentioned what we're launching in two thousand twenty two now. The true number across linear and address will that also includes measurement across the mobile as well.
WSJ Tech News Briefing
3 social media CEOs face grilling by GOP senators on bias
"Today facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and center Chai's CEO of Google and Youtube owner alphabet have been asked to testify before the Senate Commerce. Committee. They've been invited by the Republican led panel to answer questions about how their platforms deal with political content and ads joining me on what to expect is our tech policy reporter Ryan Tracy. Ryan. Thanks so much for being here. Good Morning. Thanks for having me. Okay. So it's just a week before the election and all of A. Sudden, the heads of the top social media platforms are coming to Washington. What was the impetus behind the sudden invite? Well, it was a surprise when we first heard that the committee wanted to see is to testify it was kind of unlike what we saw in the house over the past year and a half where the antitrust subcommittee investigated these companies and went back and forth for a while this came together in less than a week. There was less than a week between when they. Were invited and when the committee threatened to subpoena them to come and it was clear that the committee wanted them to come before the election and so I think it's fair to have read into that. That lawmakers see these companies as playing a really really important role right now and want to sort of oversee that role. Let's talk about what this hearing is going to focus on section two thirty of the Nineteen ninety-six Communications Decency Act. We've talked about this act in the past, but can you just give us a refresher wise it on the line right now. Sure said, the topic of the hearing is section two thirty. That's the law that gives big online platforms and small ones actually as well. Immunity from lawsuits when users post content on their sites, it also gives them immunity when they take down content or when they moderate content, and that's been viewed as a really important law for these companies to be able to develop. And grow their user base without the threat of lawsuits. Around every corner that being said, it's also getting a lot of scrutiny these days both Democrats and Republicans are wondering whether given how powerful these tech companies have become. They still deserve such a broad legal immunity, and so that's going to be a big topic of discussion at this hearing is the fact that this is taking place right before the election important for this conversation. Yeah absolutely I mean first of all, there's going to be a debate about at this hearing about how serious each party is about wanting to reform section to thirty Democrats will surely point out that. Republicans are holding this hearing before the election and that looks like perhaps an effort to influence the way facebook and twitter deal with political content over the next week and and even. After the election as well So you'll have that kind of going on in the background it also really it's kind of amazing to see this happening just six days before. November third because you know if you'd looked back earlier this year, this is exactly where facebook and twitter and Google did not want to be right that they do not want to be the center of conversation. Around this election, they had a really bad experience with that four years ago, and you know despite their efforts to get things under control this time to be more aware of the potential pitfalls around misinformation around you know things that candidates might say or that users might post despite all those efforts here they are again kind of at the center of the conversation and it just shows how central they've become to our discourse. Okay. So let's break it down a little bit. What position do we expect Republicans to take in this hearing? Yes. So Republicans are very likely to bring up they view as a bias on social media by the. Social media platforms, they see that when twitter and facebook, for example, took action against the new. York. Post stories about the Biden family in recent weeks that they were doing that with a liberal bias they think that Silicon Valley operates that way, and so we're starting to hear a lot of those types of accusations. We also expect the CEO's to push back on that as they have in the past and say that you know what they're trying to strike a balance and they're not leaving up content or taking down content with regard to one political party or another, but rather with regard to these sort of nonpartisan policies that they've tried to develop. Now, these companies have actually taken a lot of very different steps ahead of the election. Is it fair to even put all of them in the same category or are they going to be speaking to them individually about the separate efforts that they've taken? Will you're right I mean once again to the details there definitely are differences between these companies certainly, they all generally have gotten more active since twenty six. More willing to kind of step in and put a thumb on the scale when they they think it's necessary. But you know twitter for example, handled the New York Post stories by blocking sharing of a link to the stories facebook didn't do that facebook. said, it wanted its third party fact checkers to look at the stories, and while that was happening, it would slow the spread of those stories on his platforms. So there's a lot of shades of gray certainly with these companies and it'll be interesting to see how lawmakers treat them whether one of them comes out ahead or behind certainly with respect to again what we've seen with. The stories about Joe. Biden in recent days twitter print taking the brunt of that because they have taken the most. Drastic action in response to it. So we've talked a little bit about the questions. Republicans are likely to ask in this hearing. What about the Democrats Will Democrats main concern is the spread of false information on social media and we expect them to ask about that. We expect them to push back against the accusations of anti-conservative by that Republicans are going to make and so in that sense at least the Tuxedos, I'll have a friend in the room because Democrats will certainly back them on their. Their denials of those claims there could be other issues brought up for example, Google was the target of an antitrust lawsuit. Recently, we could see lawmakers ask about that on both sides of the Aisle Senator Maria Cantwell who was the top Democrat on the committee put out a report this week where she criticized these companies specifically facebook and Google for endangering local news organizations given the way that they treat content created by local news

House Panel Takes Aim at Big Tech
"House lawmakers have been looking into big technology companies for over a year. Now, a House panel is expected to propose major changes to curtail their dominance. We report that after a fifteen month investigation into Google Apple Amazon and facebook the House antitrust subcommittee is preparing to release a report on its findings and make recommendations. We turn now to our reporter Ryan Tracy for more details Hi Ryan thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. So Ryan start by taking us back about fifteen months when the house began investigating big tech companies what prompted this what was the impetus for this investigation? Well, this is coming at a time when these companies are extremely powerful there for the five most valuable companies in the country that the house is looking at and lawmakers also see them just as all the rest of us do. Impacting so many facets of our lives, apple Amazon, facebook and Google. It's hard to get through a day without interacting with one of them and probably more than one and so I don't know that it was one thing that led to this. But certainly you know this has been building for a while just scrutiny of these companies in Washington and you know feeling among policymakers that that they need to be looked at. So we are anticipating the release of a report from this House subcommittee that has been conducting the investigation over the past fifteen months. What do you think we can expect to see in that report? Sure. So this report is going to have first of all a lot of detail about the behavior of these companies. Lawmakers and their staff in particular have been gathering lots and lots of documents both from the companies themselves and from competitors of the company's sellers on Amazon, dot com or companies that try to get their customers through Google search or other sources like that, and so they've gathered a lot of information. Some of that has come out already, and certainly we probably would already know if there was some major smoking gun in this, but there's going to be a lot of detail in the report about these companies behavior the other. Thing we expect is that the lawmakers are GonNa make some policy recommendations here, and one of those at least that Democrats are considering could be some pretty radical changes to the way these companies are structured, but there'll be other policy options that are floated as well. So let's talk more about the potential implications for big tech companies, which in the past have opposed any platform separation proposals. This is something that we might see among the recommendations. How would it change like that impact, their business and why are they opposed to it? mean. So this idea which again we expect to be in the report at least at least as a suggestion for future consideration, you know it's basically a break-up, right? I would say if you own a large platform that customers or businesses us, you can't also own businesses that sort of compete with other users of the platform and so we don't have a lot. Of detail on what that means because the proposals not actually out yet but you know in general what it could mean is like Google couldn't own Google maps or Amazon might not be able to to sell Amazon, made products on its marketplace and so we'd have to we'd have to see what the details were but certainly the reason these companies opposed is because These kind of add on services are a big way that they make money off of their platforms and so you know they view it as a threat to their business. Now, politically, we've heard concerns from both Democrats and Republicans about the power and dominance of big tech, and of course, there are concerns about misinformation on some platforms. Especially in an election year Brian would you say the pressure on elected officials to do something has changed? Well. There's certainly a lot of concern out there and you do have to remember that this is an issue that plays very well politically. So if a member of Congress or a politician bashes big tech, you know a lot of constituents might like to hear that I think that's particularly true on the Republican side where conservatives are concerned about actions by social media companies to to take down content, and so you know some of that is going on here but there also are you know lasting concerns that go beyond politics with these companies and? The scrutiny is going to continue on them. No matter who wins the election. We've also been reporting that the trump administration is investigating tech companies as well for antitrust violations. What's the latest you can tell us about those efforts sure. So the Department of Justice is close to bringing a lawsuit against Google, sources have told us we expect that lawsuit to come before the election according to those sources although the exact timing is not clear yet, and with respect to facebook the federal trade, commission is taking the lead on an inquiry into facebook that investigation has advanced to the point where the FTC is now preparing a potential antitrust lawsuit against the company that could come by the end of this year although that timeline isn't certain either. Ryan what could potential changes like the is mean for consumers, users of these tech platforms? Well, it's hard to say without knowing the specifics of the proposal but in general, it really depends on who you ask if you're talking to someone who's who's really believes Amazon and Google, and these other platforms are harming competition in the way they act. Then if these proposals were implemented, you'd expect to see a lot more. Diversity in the search results that you would see on those sites. For example, you might see sort of. A different map provider pop up if you search for directions or something of that nature and on the other hand, there's an argument that the tech companies and their supporters make that you know these platforms could become worse if Google makes less money on google search than maybe Google will have less money to invest in making Google search better. So there's a lot of unknown here and that's why lawmakers are. Beginning this process of throwing out a proposal and then the real argument begins. Anything else we should keep in mind here as this continues to play out. One thing to keep in mind is that there are some partisan differences here. So by and large members of both parties are concerned about the power of big tech but they do differ on what they wanNA do about it. Democrats are much more inclined to propose some relatively intrusive regulatory restrictions on these companies to open up competition and achieve other goals Republicans. Are, more, skeptical of that they might be willing to go along with Democrats in kind of off cases, sort of targeting specific problems, but it's going to be harder to get their support for a really sweeping regulatory overhaul, and so the election is really gonNA matter a lot here and and whoever is in power and twenty twenty will have to decide this question. Wall Street Journal reporter Brian Tracy Ryan. Thank you so much for joining me today by slot.
Crazy things people connect to company Wi-Fi networks
"Talking Tech is brought to you by Amazon Alexa turn your home into a smart home in just minutes with an Amazon Smart Lighting Bundle and right now they've got a special offer just for our listeners find out more after the show. So at the office, we connect our laptops and smartphones the company Wi fi network, and that's about it right? Well, not exactly Ryan. Olson. A top security researcher at Palo Alto networks found some pretty strange things in there as well. Ryan you tell everybody what you found. Yeah. Thanks Jeff Percents last week released a report based off of the survey where we reached out to over. A thousand people who are it decision makers all around the world. We were really interested in getting understanding of sort of how they view this Internet of things all these things that are being connected our network, the potential security ramifications of those things that you connected and we did find one of the questions we asked was what strange things are you finding? They're being connected to your. Networks and a couple of them were pretty strange. One was a smart trash can That's a really weird one that we learned about and another one was a smart hand wash to censor, which is also an interesting item to be connected to your network and sort of make sense in the world of Covid nineteen where you want to keep track of people often they're. Washing their hands and you're gathering all that data. But those are just examples of the billions of devices that are being connected, the Internet, which of having advantages for companies and for individuals but also eventually opened up new exposures for their data. Will you also found Tesla's and teddy bears and things like that. Now, what advantage to accompany is it to have a tesla on their network? For a company in particular that Tesla was probably connected by one of their employees they probably drove up, they wanted to connect their car so that somebody could get updates or something else for the car and they just connected to the company's wireless network without really thinking about what the impact of that would be, and that's true for lots and lots of IOT devices. It's very unlikely that a company is going to ask for that Internet connected. Teddy bear to be connected on someone brings it to work. They say, Hey, I wanNA use this here. I want to connect and they don't necessarily get permission or check with it or definitely check what security say is a good idea for me to add this device to our company's network will what's your feeling? Ryan is a good idea to connect tests, teddy bears or should companies be pretty strict and have just a computer and smartphone only policy? I think the the best way forward is to do this with your eyes open I check right before I jumped on the call I got forty seven devices connected to my home network and I'll tell you some of those computers, some of those phones but there's lots of IOT devices my house as well but I know what they are I know why they're here I know what purpose they serve. If you're a company whose allowing people to bring things into their office attached into the network, you should know what they are and why they're there because one of the things we're really refined commonly is. Not Devices. Simply are not well secured. They don't have patches being applied to them to close off security vulnerabilities. They have insecure configurations with these easy to guess passwords on them, and that means that they act sort of like a window into the company's data and window that someone might be able to peer through. But someone might also be able to smash it walk in and start excellent training lots of eight out of the network, and that's really where the danger comes in. You GotTa know what those windows are in know how you're keeping them secure. Ryan thanks so much. So I think the moral of the story is Hey, folks if you're bringing stuff to work in your plugging into the company Wifi Network, you might WanNa. Ask I write. Absolutely

Biden's lead over Trump is the steadiest on record
"Day Day in in the the rear rear view view mirror. mirror. Now Now the the presidential presidential campaign campaign will will be be heating heating up up for for sure sure we we go go deeper deeper now. now. With With CNN, CNN, Washington Washington correspondent correspondent Ryan Ryan Nobles Nobles joining joining us us from from the the White White House House this morning on Skype. Ryan Poles have been fairly consistent over the past few months. Joe Biden holding about a 10 point lead over Donald Trump nationally. How's the Trump campaign hoping to close that captain? How's the Biden campaign, hoping to hold him off? Yeah, well, first things Bruce, the Trump campaign would refute public polling. They would tell you that the race is a lot closer than what the public polling is telling us much like we saw in 2016. But what you see from the Trump campaign right now is a coordinated effort. To try and really take advantage of the violence and unrest that we're seeing in some American cities As the result of these protests that took place because of shootings by police with unarmed African Americans and You know, the Trump campaign sees this as a wedge issue for them, particularly in some of these key swing states where they won four years ago where Republicans don't traditionally when that's in the upper Midwest places like Michigan and Wisconsin, and they're going to continue to beat that drum. On the other side of the coin. You see the Biden campaign slowly starting to actually get back to physical campaigning. Joe Biden travelling a lot more than he was during the summer because of the Corona virus pandemic and for the Biden campaign. It's just about not screwing things up. They feel like they've got a comfortable lead their head in the places they need to be ahead off. So it's really about the Trump campaign, putting the pressure on them and Biden trying to resist making a big mistake and interesting that potential Corona virus vaccine that so many people have been hoping for, has now become a point of contention in the campaign. It's kind of a weird thing, right, Bruce? I mean, everybody's been begging and hoping that Ah, vaccine would come sooner rather than later. But now that the Trump administration has seemed to indicate that they're going to attempt to push the vaccine, maybe even before Election Day that has Democrats raising questions as to whether or not they're doing it safely and you even saw you know, Vice President Biden and and Kamala Harris was running mate split on whether or not they would take a vaccine if it were rushed to market before the election. Certainly raising some questions, and the other part of this, too, is that it You know, there's a lot of the Trump base a lot of Trump supporters that are skeptical about vaccines in general. So the idea that they would be you know, anxious to take a vaccine like this that comes on the market so soon is really an interesting dynamic in this entire race, and you're headed to North Carolina tonight. That's right. The president, I got a very busy campaign schedule. He's gonna be in to swing states today is gonna spend the morning in Jupiter, Florida and then had to Winston Salem, North Carolina tonight. Later in the week, he'll be in Pennsylvania this weekend heading to the West Coast going to make a stop in Nevada. The president is in full campaign mode right now, and I could tell you I've covered about a half a dozen of these rallies. They're taking very few, if any. Corona virus precautions. Very few masks, People shoulder to shoulder. The president's basically put the pandemic in the rear view mirror and is focusing completely on, you know, firing his campaign up just like it was in March. All right, Ryan, thanks Appreciate the update, CNN, Washington correspondent Ryan Nobles joining us on Skype this morning.

Chicago - Are Travel Restrictions Coming Or Going To COVID-19 Hot Spots Effective?
"The summer travel season should be humming along right now before the pandemic hit the travel and hospitality industry expecting strong earnings since at the time, unemployment was so low and wages were so high a perfect scenario for vacationers to explore the country. But now as we hear from ABC is Ryan Burrow, the entire city of Chicago is off limits to many travelers, and Ryan joins us on the coma News line. Ryan How does the Chicago travel restriction working? Will people from Washington State be impacted? You know, it's interesting. We got this note of the emergency travel ordered issued by the city of Chicago late afternoon yesterday after the mayor had already spoken about Fourth of July plans encouraging people not to gather encouraging bars and restaurants to remain at their capacity restrictions and not Get loose with things because trouble's been doing very well in recent months as Faras keeping the numbers down, the state of Illinois has as a whole, but we got this notice. 15 states are on this list, and what the order calls for is a 14 day quarantine if any Chicago resident were to go to one of these 15 states. They include Florida, Georgia, Arizona, California, Texas all of these hot spots if they're to come back to Chicago. They need to quarantine for 14 days before they could go back out into the general publican. Likewise, if someone from one of these states comes to Chicago, they don't want to walk in the streets. They want him to quarantine, which obviously doesn't make for a very fun vacation. If that's why you're in Chicago, you know. Is there something unique, at least from my perspective about Chicago compared to other, you know, really big cities across the nation and its the giant, huh? Before air travel. Are people gonna have to quarantine before they can make connecting flights or or does that even matter? At this point, that's a great question. We don't exactly know how this will be enforced in one form or another. Is this going to be checked when someone arrives at the airport doesn't go into effect until Monday. My belief is this is probably going to be on the honor system encouraging people look, especially if you're Traveling from one of these states. We need you to stay put because we don't want to spread this virus any further. But if you are caught, and it turns out that you were in Texas, or you were in Florida or Utah, and you've come back to Chicago within two weeks, and perhaps you come down with cold, Maggie. Well, maybe there will be a fine levied against you. It's a really high stakes weekend for infection trends is, you know what has Chicago done well to be in such a good situation where At least locals are relatively safe. It's been a very slow, gradual opening bunch to the frustration of a lot of businesses, especially restaurants, who had struggled just last week earlier this week. This month, I should say, um, well, I guess we're in July now. But just a few weeks ago, the city finally opened up. Restaurants to outdoor eating, and then finally loosen some restrictions. Very limited, indoor eating. It's been very frustrating, and people have wanted to move quicker, but in the numbers, we've seen a significant decrease in the number of cases and whereas all of these other states seem to be flaring up, Chicago and Illinois seem to be pretty well. A disease Ryan Burrow with us on Coma News, Ryan thank you very much and have a good Fourth of July

Floyd, Brianna, Taylor Ahmad Aubrey Tamir, Rice Rees Gordon, Sandra Blan- and unfortunately the list can keep going and going and going, but we want to keep those names out. There want to keep this conversation going so people stay informed. And we don't want this to be got to be forgotten, so we're back in the situation again so Yes, like I said blogger owners committed to doing that and I am not just here by myself. I have a contassot. Guests with me here today to keep this conversation going. I am talking about. Pull a surprise and Emmy Award winning journalist. Tremaine, Lee. He is also MB. Correspondent in host of the into America podcast, so I am so glad to have him here with me today. They Ryan thank you so much revenue neutral appreciative. I WANNA. Start off this. This question was kinda going throughout. My might assume I knew I was GONNA. I was excited about this because I wanna Kinda. Give the listeners a different perspective that we don't get all the time with all this coverage of the protests and everything that's going on and not to say that you speak for all of news broadcasting. and I'm in production that worlds often find myself in this conversation as well. This is why this question is so important to me. But how do you deal with the idea of people asking why the media is covering the protests way their covenant, or you know certain situations. You find yourself in a maybe you don't have a choice of what the story is recovering that day. What's it? It depends I think the one thing that we do have choice over one one space did I control is how I centered the narrative. That I'm speaking to reporting on recovering so sometimes. The critique of the media is absolutely correct, because the media is not like any other institution. America, that's been a touched in racism, touched in bias touching all those things, so it's incumbent upon us working inside media. To make sure flicking the truest narrative possible, and sometimes that begins with our own experience in our own. To understand the language that's being spoken these communities right so so we're not relying on trucks and stereotypes ideally. We're we're connecting to the people in a different way and so I don't pay much mind to the critiques necessarily except for some of correct That's when we have to make sure that we are redoubling our efforts but I know from from. You know I don't I. Don't get many of those critiques because you know. I try to keep it as as true as possible I. Mean That's what I've done my entire career. So you know sometimes they're correct. Sometimes, they're not sometimes people. Are just shouting into the ether, your social media just right the shouting right, but I think the good thing is that the proof is always in the so that people can consume the information. The best dress with their concerns are. Right and speaking of getting out there and speaking the truth into America a fairly new podcast. She started up. Can you tell me about how that started and wise that important to you? Into America at this point I think we're on episode Twenty Six maybe twenty seven in the the whole idea behind into Americans really get outside of our bubbles in really go out into America. In an approach politics policy in a different conway. Along and I worked for MSNBC PROUDLY SO but you know the twenty four hour news cycle. It's kind of like a horse. Race Times. If you're not careful the way we. The Lens from which review politics? It's also who's up now. WHO's fallen behind? You know it's daily drama as opposed to the way politics policy actually impact the lives of everyday people, and so the goal of into America was to do just that. Go out into America. And speak directly to people about their concerns, their needs but also how the backdrop of policy is really impacting them. You know and I really do believe that is the kind of thing. I worked my entire life trying to trying to do right always out there with the people and trying to tell the people's story. Our care deeply about the most vulnerable among US marginalized community, most certainly a black folks in this country, but also the poor any race the marginalized anyways so into America. We've been trying to. Obviously it's shifted a bit through. I Kobe nineteen right so now we're. Quest heard in with the engaged with how people are You know the fallout from Kobe nineteen whether it's the the emotional stuff with his health, related impact was the economic impact and now in. This Arab uprising rebellion in protests. We've shifted again to to address in all of the concerns around systemic racism the the the initial ideals of white supremacy that in so many ways to guide this country. The protests respect all of those things, so that's a long answer, but that is into America.

well interesting enough I can't stop singing yesterday records and it's interesting as I got older also rainy night yesterday one of the things I've been concerned about the crowds have been getting rather large outside and the corner where they hang out is on Broadway show and I've been a little concerned looking down because I see sometimes people aren't paying attention at the crossing the street sometimes the people that are driving the cars are looking up at the window or not paying attention is there as the driving down the road either so I actually talk to the NYPD about it yesterday and and ask them you know what they thought as well and they were getting concerned as well and I said what do you think we should do here they said the best thing to do is to stop singing

Native America Calling
NEPA changes looming
"This is native America Calling Monica Brain sitting in for tear gatewood. It started in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine with a massive oil spill about three million gallons of crude oil spilled into the Pacific Ocean by Santa Barbara California the environmental damage outrage the public and elected officials and it was the impetus for the federal legislation named the National Environmental Policy. Act OR NIBA. The act formalized the practice of environmental impact assessments. That explore how big projects might harm the environment or wildlife as dry as that might sound. Such a review was at the heart of the decision to locate the Dakota access pipeline near standing rock so now the trump administration says Nipah needs to be modernized. They would like to expedite environmental reviews. The proposed changes could also limit the public's ability to weigh in the proposal calls for tribal consultation but many tribal environmental watchers say that the trade offs are severe. That's our show today. Are you interested in streamlining environmental assessments? Will your try benefit from the proposed changes? Maybe they'll get projects done faster. Phone lines are open. Everyone's welcome give us a call. The number is one eight hundred nine nine. Six two eight four eight. That's eight hundred nine. Nine native joining us. Now is Dr Ryan Emmanuel. He's an associate professor and university faculty scholar in the Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources at North Carolina State University and Ryan is an enrolled member of the Lombi tribe. Welcome back to native America Calling Ryan. Thanks for having me Monica. Yeah it's great to have you also on the line. We have Lisa developed. She is the vice chair of the Fort Birth hold protectors of water and earthrights and she is an enrolled enrolled in the man. Dan Haddatha recrimination. Welcome Lisa thanks for joining us Ryan let's start with you okay. So what purpose does Nipah serve? So one of the the key purposes of Nita's to ensure that we accurately document The environmental and tax Of a proposed project that is either going to be carried out by the government Carried out on federal lands or carried out with Some kind of federal funding Or or or permitting approval in order to make informed decisions about The types of actions or projects. that that we undertake in the US Nita says that You you must go into that with your eyes. Wide Open regarding environmental impact so at a very basic level it's a it's a documentation of the The environmental trade-offs and effects of undertaking a certain activity or development or project. Okay so let me simplify this a little bit to see if I understand this There's a project and it's either on federal land or it has federal funding and let's say that The environmental reviews is required. It's done and then it says something like this fish farm could end up Killing thirty percent of the sea turtles in the area. The that's all that happens with that. There's public comment but the company ultimately or whoever's doing the project ultimately decides whether or not to move forward is that right well the the agency that's responsible for conducting the review under Nipah is the one We'll make a decision based on whatever those numbers particulars are whether it's endangered species Or hunting or fishing areas or any other kind of resource areas. The Federal Agency has to take responsibility for the impacts. And say say yes you know despite those impacts. We're we're going to permit this activity anyway or no those impacts are too severe and we're GonNa make a judgment call and say we won't issue you this particular permit okay and so Let's talk about some of the proposed changes that are recommended To start off at one of the big things that I read was the creating deadlines for projects and so when president trump announced this he. He made a mention that you know. Sometimes projects take decades to finish and it's really slowing down progress and things like that and so this the the proposed changes would require that projects need to be finished from start to end The the permitting process anyway in two years is that right. That's right and it's important. I think to define what that window of time is that is from. The announcement of the agency is going to undertake An environmental review Through the the research in preparation of the document the public comment process finalization of the report. And then the agency's decision are supposed to take place within that proposed two year window. I mean do you think that's unreasonable? To try and get stuff done in two years. Well if you look at the the underlying data that the proposal sites you know it looks like it would be difficult. So the council environmental quality studied a length of time that it takes reviews to work their way to the systems and it really varies from one agency to another but a lot of these reviews take much longer than two years and so you know there are a couple of explanations for that one could be inefficiencies in the system but the other explanation could be that environmental issues are just so complex and we now have such a richer understanding of these issues and we did Fifty years ago that it warrants More time and more effort To to study documents impacts underneath a are Is THE AGENCY REQUIRED TO CONSULT WITH TRIBES? If it's on their tribal land or near in ancestral land. They so there's a federal executive order that Nipah is is Well the agencies are required to abide by Federal Executive Order Requires them to consult with drives whether it's on tribally controlled territory or or traditional lands Of that particular tribe so that that would still be in effect under the proposed rule changes as far as I understand. There's some language in the proposed rule about actually strengthening Provision for tribal consultation But at the same time there's concern about shortening the time window that you have to engage with tribes. Yeah that's another proposed. Change is well of course if it's two years than that automatically shortens the time window but also you know there's a public comment period Which we're in right now for these proposed changes to NAPA. But you know for these projects and there's a some efforts or the proposed changes are to shorten those public comment periods as well. What do you think about that? Well so I'll give you an example from the tribes that I work with here in North Carolina I I actually work with predominantly non federally recognized rides and there. There are a couple of important things about that but For this conversation you know. It's important to note that these trials are resourced when it comes to Staff who can deal with these kinds of requests for public comments or preparing the kinds of rich responses that are needed to articulate tribal concerns. You may have one person in tribal government. Who's responsible for environment Energy on and maybe a few other roles as well so when they're already Under under pressure to respond to these kinds of deadlines it will probably reduce their ability to participate in decision-making if you shorten the window even further

Former NFL Patriot Ryan O'Callaghan talks LGBTQ struggles
"My next guest had a six year. NFL Career his book my life on the line and how the NFL damn near killed me. It ended up saving my life. He is one of the I would say one of the most influential people. Certainly for me that I've known of in the last ten years. His his name is Ryan O'Callaghan Ryan. Thanks for. Give me some at least a moment of your time today. I can't thank you enough for that. Absolutely thanks Yeah Mansell. There's so much I I wanNA talk to you about but for your sanity I'll try to keep it. Keep it short so I feel like your life is and there's many monumental moments in your life so i Kinda Wanna put everything together other for people who live in New England. You know people that are a fan of yours for what you've done on the field what you've done off the field so I'm going to try to paint a complete fleet picture and I know for your saying they try to keep it in a minimal amount of time So you're boarding redding California and I thought I read a quote Ryan where you said at times it might be more conservative places in Alabama's that growing up at least anyway. It was that something. He's still feel today that that's the absolute truth growing up and even today I mean I think it's safe to say it might even be more conservative than it was when I was growing up. Just there's a lot of I'll reply Jusuf Sir religious influence in town that that moved into town and it's really been driving the politics and there's just not a big city city nearby so it's kind of a bubble in a lot of people. Don't get out sell it targeted open. Mind when when you Kinda stuck somewhere case for a lot of people here yeah and that makes so much sense and I guess that's a conversation at a time because I feel very strongly it from what you're saying because I feel like people talk religious and religion I and it's supposed to be preaching tolerance. oftentimes I feel. Religion is is more judgmental than anything else Ryan but I guess that's a that's a conversation will table for another time. You know I just just. I'm for people. Can they can believe in what they want. Right it's got it's gotTa Stop Short of hating judgment and the group. DOC ID. That's yeah and that's my point like it's believing who you want. But it's I even think with any religion Ryan wherever you live. The more important horn thing is how do you treat people on a day to day basis. Not what you believe what you think will get you into heaven like what are you. How are you treating your everyday man even even if you might not disagree even if you don't agree with what this person does or doesn't do I don't know that's you've ignited something merely on and I totally agree with you? Yeah we're on the same case we are so you're you're a conservative Irish Catholic family. I'm Irish get it.

I don't I don't have a lot of bad things to say about my childhood. Like my family. My Daddy always provided everything everything I ever needed You know we -cations all all that was was great him. I think the things that in my childhood that affected me down the road were the different things that would here. Come out of the mouths of my loved ones and that that was really that the lasting effective of is my childhood. And that's why I'd speak to adults and parents these days. I really try to stress You know watching what you say is at all sticks and stones wake posit. Words will never hurt you but that that's that's not the trip especially as a kid you you hear those words and they stick with you for your life and you know it has a way else. That's different things and they come from people that you admire him before we get to some of that Ryan Ryan. How many siblings do you have? I have one sister WHO's sixteen months older My Dad when he was eighteen he got married and had two kids. I do have two half sisters who are quite a bit older. I got you and you know just fast forwarding you know in highschool. We'll probably kind of work our way back on occasion. You end up at CAL. Berkeley your top offensive line prospect. I mean I. I think you're before we get to what you've done off the field. Your ability on on the field for those listening people New England know it for sure was remarkable and when I find most remarkable about it was you know how you felt emotionally which she was all I get it. I took completely get it but do you think you would have. You are amazing as it is. If you love football in things in society was different different. Do you think you could have been that much better or do you think your ability was. What was the question what you're saying? Yeah I was in college especially those. That was pretty good. I won the best offense Lineman award in the conference and I did a lot of great things but I let you know my my game is if you WANNA call him. Just my secrets that were driving my life affect too many things I myself I made myself get too big just just just basically to hide my sexuality appear not attractive and that affected my play on the
Los Angeles's Lucas Museum acquires major archive of African American cinema
"The Lucas Museum. Am hasn't yet opened. Its doors but the narrative art space just announced a major acquisition an extensive archive of Black American cinema movie. Posters and film stills stills called separate cinema. The Lucas Museum is currently under construction at Exposition Park near downtown. La It's scheduled to open in late twenty twenty anyone. The museum's film curator is Ryan Linkov Ryan. Welcome to the frame. Thank you for having me. The collection is called separate cinema. Can you explain lane. What's behind the name and how it defines what is included in the archive? We're actually just having this conversation with the founder of the Archive John. Kish the name. It comes out of a specific historical moment specifically the first half of the twentieth century. The Twenties Thirties and forties in particular which saw the proliferation of a film industry really defined around African American filmmakers producers directors actors really kind of films made four and by an African American audience and in a way those existed outside of the mainstream methods of making movies and the distribution channels. So they really were in some weighs a separate track Film production distribution and consumption. For that reason I think it's a way of kind of identifying the ways in which a film home industry kind of developed for particular market that is in some ways obviously always entwined in broader mainstream history but also has its own kind of internal integrity that said the materials in the collection are both made by black filmmakers for black audiences and obviously films produced by the mainstream mainstream majority white film. Production Industry for broader. Is this as well. I WANNA play a clip from a film from nineteen. Forty three is called a cabinet in the sky. As it's hard. Lena Horne Ethel waters and Eddie Anderson. Interestingly it was directed by Vincente Minnelli who did G G in American in Paris. But listen to this good example of what you're talking about in terms MM separate cinema. It's a scene from a cabin in the sky. Nail Right Reverend. When you call on the Senate confessed he better sign me the rest of the evening or oh? You're not that bad Joseph so when you think about this period in film history why is this period so important and understanding how we got where we are. Today I would say it's really in some ways. Essential to understand understand the ways in which especially the Hollywood studio system both developed a culture of representing African Americans that was on the one hand quite pernicious in the way that it represented very entrenched Stereotypes of the African American experience and on the other there were attempts such as cabin in the sky to produce films homes that were at least making an attempt to speak and more sensitive and thoughtful ways to African American audience by featuring major iconic figures within the African American community and also figures who had a broader kind of popular appeal. And this kind of push pull this tension between trying to both represent the African American experience and also kind of in some ways exploiting a capitalizing on particular stereotypes. I think are really kind of something that will continue tend to live with and continues to play itself out in certain ways and I think understanding this broader history especially that kind of early days the first half of the twentieth century when the entire film industry in some ways was most thoroughly coming into shape. I think really helps us understand and explain where we are at the present moment. We're talking with Ryan Linkov Film Curator Raider for the Lucas Museum. To ask you about the collection itself. There are thousands of items in it. What was John Kish up to? And how did he. He assembled all of these things. Well so he's been collecting release since I believe the nineteen seventies and acquiring this collection piece by piece through a variety of different outlets through auctions. Private collections need did develop. What is by most measures the most impressive and comprehensive archive of material related to African American cinema Really with the intent of creating an archive that was available for both scholarly early research and also public programming and exhibitions to really highlight celebrate explore and examine the broader history of African American cinema across the twentieth century. And into the twenty I and he continues to be in conversations with us as new things come auction and that kind of thing so we really want to continue that legacy and also make it in the same ways as accessible for the research and for their conceptualization of the history of African American cinema. I WANNA play a clip from another movie. That is a seminal example of black black cinema. This is one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. Do the right thing in this scene. We're going to hear from a character named Radio Raheem who played by. Bill is always always fighting. The other hand you left hand is kicking much. I mean it looks like the right hand. Love is finished but hold on stop depressed. Rest of the writing is coming back. He's got the best roads now. Strike the devastating right. Oh Hey Kale. I love the scene and it made me wonder about how much film presentation and screenings will. We'll be part of what this collection is going to be about. Are People going to be able to see movies. Are you do screenings and conversations around those films so some programming will be he and major part of the museum's mission going forward. We will have to state of the art theater for film programming and It's great that you played a clip from do the right thing because we are actually organizing a film program. In February February eighth that will feature do the right thing As well as the Whiz we actually the collaboration aberration with Los Angeles County Museum of art and this is really our first attempt at putting together a film program. I think you're scheduled to open in late. Twenty twenty one. We know uh-huh maybe the Academy Museum hasn't quite met its deadlines. Are you pretty hopeful that we will have a museum by the end of next year. We are on schedule to to be substantially complete with construction by the end of twenty twenty. One we haven't announced an actual opening day for the public But everything's moving ahead Ryan Linkov is filmed curator.

All Things Considered
Russia's 2016 Election Meddling More Comprehensive Than Realized
"Focused on developing an audience and even recruiting asset so people to act in the real world to say stage rallies. Now, one of the report says that a main message that was pushed to African American voters was that it was best to sit out the election to boycott the election. The press turn out, right? And then one example of a fake persona. That was created by the IRA that got a lot of traction is an Instagram account set up with the username of that blacks to Graham, and it had more than three hundred thousand followers. It is worth pointing out that much of the focus up until now has been on Facebook and Twitter. But these researchers are saying that the Russians also use Instagram and other social media platforms. Right, right. One of the things that these reports made clear is that the Russians leveraged every major social media platform Instagram had largely stayed under the radar. That's no longer. The case. These reports say that Instagram was actually a huge part of Russia's efforts online. For example, one of the report says that fake Russian content on Facebook received seventy six point five million engagements on Instagram fake, Russian content earned more than two times as many engagements is that researchers say importantly, looking ahead that the Russians have shifted a lot of their activity to Instagram since the election, which is an important point the Russians are still using social media. Try to influence Americans. That's absolutely, right. And it's a really important point to make that Russians continue to use fake accounts on these platforms for nefarious purposes. So you mentioned that the Senate supplied the data. These researchers used is congress planning to do anything more to stop Russia or any other country from using social media to influence US voters. Well, there's certainly been chatter from lawmakers about possible legislation social media companies would prefer to deal with this without any sort of legislation regulation, of course, one of the reasons that we are talking about this. And this report is out is it puts the public's attention on material online, and with the hope that Americans will be more judicious about what they're engaging with online. That's NPR's. Ryan lucas. Thanks, ryan. Thank you. Thirty one years ago this month. Ronald Reagan turned to Mikhail Gorbachev and spoke these words dove, no provi trust. But verify the occasion was the White House signing of the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty. The I n f as it's known the treaty bans. Both the US and Russia from having land launched missiles that can fly from three hundred to thirty four hundred miles. Washington says Russia has been cheating on the treaty. And now the US is threatening to pull out that could spell the end of what has been considered one of the most successful, Cold War era, arms, control, treaties, more. We're going to take a few minutes here to lay out what is going on. And why it matters here in the studio to help with that our national security correspondent, David welna? Hi there, Mary Louise and our in house nuclear expert. Jeff Brumfield, welcome to you. Hi, David you start. What is the US beef here? What why does the US wanna pull out? Well, the US says that since the end of the last Bush admin. Station. Russia has been out of compliance with the treaty that Russia has been not only developing but also fielding cruise missiles that are in violation of the treaty and the Obama administration this publicly for the first time four years ago. So this isn't just the Trump administration. Leveling these complaints. This goes back, but President Trump in October said that the US was going to pull out of the treaty. And then earlier this month secretary of state, Mike Pompeo went to Brussels, and he said Russia would have sixty days to come back into compliance with the treaty or the US would begin the formal six-month notification process for pulling out of the treaty. Here's what Tom PEO said Russia admits it's violations and fully and verifiably comes back into compliance. We will of course, welcome. That course of action and just to keep the clock straight here. David Pompeo was talking you said earlier this month he gives Russia sixty days to come back into compliance. So that means the US is looking for something by what February by February for them to come back into compliance. And if they don't by early August, the US would no longer be a party to the treaty and just briefly what does Moscow say today acknowledged that they're cheating on the treaty Moscow. At first denied that they even had
