Early Kentucky Derby favorite Forte scratched from race
"The horse that was favored to win today's Kentucky Derby has been scratched from the race. The owner of forte says the cult has a bruised right front foot and the veterinarians with a Kentucky horse racing commission had voiced their concerns, even though forte's trainer had downplayed that injury. This is the 5th horse to be scratched from the Derby. In the days leading up to the $3 million race, 5 horses have died at Churchill downs in recent days, leading to one of the trainers, safi Joseph junior, being suspended. I'm Jackie Quinn
Churchill Downs suspends trainer Joseph after 2 horse deaths
"Churchill downs has suspended trainer safi Joseph junior indefinitely and lord miles trained by Joseph has been scratched from Saturday's 149th Kentucky Derby just days after the sudden death of two of his horses. Joseph said Thursday he was questioned by investigators from the Kentucky horse racing commission and Churchill downs, claiming the investigators found no wrongdoing on their part. His horses four year old parents pride last weekend in 5 year old chasing Artie on Tuesday, collapsed on the track and died after races. I'm geffen cool ball.

"At Churchill downs and we're pleased to be joined now by a gentleman who was very happy with that upset in the wood memorial trainer safi Joseph junior, the conditioner of lord miles, safi that, first of all, thanks for joining us. That had to be a shock even to you. Almost definitely we thought the horse had the ability, but after then it hadn't shown for it to come together, it was a great great feeling basically. What does it mean when you say we thought the horse had ability, but he hadn't shown it. So what is it that you would what did you see? You say, you know what, this horse, we need to give him a shot in the wood memorial, even though he hasn't run a race yet that looks like he'd be a contender. Yeah, he's showing a Billy, but not up to the level that we thought he had. So he trained in his training very good very forward. First time I won well and then second demo, he ran third in a stake. So not to say he hadn't shown ability, but to the standard that we thought and Derby standard. And then we put blinkers on because he was so inconsistent in his two races and the holy bowl and that was a disaster because he ran his worst race of his life. Kind of lost a little bit of confidence there and went through the Tampa Bay Derby and Paco had basically right in the hallway. He got him out at the quarter pole and he stayed on. And they gave you a little hope to try to with one more time and there it was one more chance and it turned out to be the right decision. Well, the three year old's a changed so quickly at this time of year, they can kind of be sluggish or whatever, then all of a sudden the lightbulb goes on and they continue on improving, was he like that? I mean, it was just a situation where he didn't put it all together yet. Yeah, I mean the ability to zero in the wood he was much more handy. He was able to set up a clear trip and I get dirt. That was the closest he wasn't in any race. Of the route races. So he's by curling. It shows stamina and there's also a better age of curling. So hopefully he'll follow suit. You mentioned that Paco Lopez is regular writer, had to ride him from the start at Tampa. Is that a case where he just really didn't like the racetrack there? No, because he had done that in his races. I think maybe just being in the one hole and taking all that dirt, he was never he was always fighting the kickbacks. It was never able to get him on the bridle, as I said, at a quarter pool he was going back under urgent. Looks like he would run last in my opinion. And then at a wire backup guy, I started to watch my other horse in the race and there he was. Staying on past even horses, but something enough to give you a try. Lord miles, first four starts of his career, ran races that wouldn't come close to contending in The Kentucky Derby jumped up with much improved performance in the wood memorial. So improved that it wouldn't take a lot more improvement to make him a contender this Saturday. So the question is, how do we get that little bit more improvement from lord miles from his last race to this time? I mean, you just hope that the extra distance helps him and you hope that he is upswing him. He's going to need to improve that the wooden royal won't get it done. So he needs to improve again and I just said there are three year olds hopefully he is improving and we saw last year the hardest to get to the day. We hope to get to the Derby and then you hope for the best. Have you seen him in the morning? Act more happy than he won or so on the morning. He's always trained well. He's always been a forward train. And that's why he's kind of been a little confusing in his hence why do blinkers went on. Because he wasn't showing in the races what we thought we were seeing in the morning. Since the bully we didn't have to do much, he had to work. So I'm all for it for a while. But it was plenty of fit, so just about maintaining right now. Speaking with trainer safi Joseph, junior, he's been the leading trainer the last two championship meets down at Gulfstream park. He's had grade one winners like white a barrio who by the way is also running this weekend here at Churchill downs math wizard drained the clock, mischievous Alex. Among others sends out wood memorial champ, lord miles flashing back to the wood memorial again, three horses driving down to the line. It looked like bumper cars down the lane that was an inquiry after the race and no change to the order of finish. I thought they made the right call. I did not have a bet in the race. It was not monetarily influenced opinion by me. Were you nervous? I mean, I guess any time there's an inquiry and you win, you have to be a little nervous, but kind of look like everyone bumped everybody else. Yeah, most definitely you're nervous and you dealing with an opinion. And at the end of the day, it's a surge opinion. If they say a change is warranted and you've got to accept the president is not fact, so you never want to be in that position. So it was a long, it felt like two hours, but it was probably like ten minutes. I thought it was the right decision. Obviously, I'm biased, but I try to look at things unbiased. And I thought it was the right decision. I even saw I read an article where Brad Cox was very gracious and he said he thought it was the right decision also. He's a very gracious guy, Brian Cox. So triple crown, you won the Barbados Triple Crown you were 19, I think. 22, I think. 22. Old guy. So talking about that triple chrome compared to this one is the same level of nerves and anticipation or is it just another race day? No, I think any horse. Any horse race you're always nervous, just you want to win and you hope a horse comes back safe and healthy and that's the important thing so I think every race you get the same kind of nerves barbecue grandma. More to me than anything. That's where it was my home and that's where it is. Now you get to this level and obviously the American ship was more recognized. It's on a worldwide stage. So it's a big difference in the aspect, but the key is always have to the right horse. It doesn't matter where you are at the horses, the important factor. Safi looking for his first Kentucky Derby win Paco Lopez looking for his first Kentucky Derby win. Post position 19 is this something where you and Paco come up with a plan or is he experienced enough that he just has to figure it out and find the best trip hopefully not get caught a thousand miles wide in the first turn and getting too many too many bumping situations. Yeah, I mean, he has to work out a jet pack up from there that's his job. 19 I actually don't mind it because I wouldn't even want to be 6, 7, 8, 5, four, three, nothing in them because as I said, he has to face all that kick back. He's going to get kicked back in the Derby as obvious, but hopefully he could get into a nice spot whether it be 56, 7 for on there. If the pace is slow, we could be closer. That would be ideal. I think if you get a good trip, I'll give him his best chance to see hopefully run as well as he can. You're based in South Florida. I'm based in South Florida. This is a little bit of different weather than what we normally see in South Florida. How does lord miles take to what seems like about a 40° lower temperature here than what he is at his home base? Yeah, I think when he comes to cooler weather, there's always helps now versus more than anything. I don't think this temperature, I don't think it has a lot of detriment to them. I think if anything, it'll help them. So far he's been good, isn't it? Yeah, they seem to really blossom when it gets a little cooler. They get a kick in their step and enjoy. You see the horses training. I mean, every Derby horse is trained super. As far as we can see, we go out there every morning and watch them go and everybody's really in a good mood. It seems like. No, most definitely, you got top class trainers for all these horses. And

"Again, only start number four coming up later today, but that's one thing that I think sometimes gets overlooked. People get so caught up in the numbers now that they don't go back through and look at the horses that any particular horse you're looking to bet was facing in their previous starts and certainly talk to the nation has kept good company. He rarely has kept terrific company in those last two starts. It's a situation where you get a horse like him who's a two year old three year old and it looks like it's probably always thought well of them. You've got to give him a shot on the dirt. You always have to give these sources a shot at the Derby. But when he gets on the turf and runs big like he did last time, you pretty much know his future is going to be on the grass. I was fully expecting you to select the Tampa Bay Derby as your third race in this week's to inspire triple play, but you have not. You're going to go with race number 8 at Tampa Bay downs, which is the grade three challenger, $100,000 purse, mile and a 16th on the main track. This is for the older horses. How did you see this one? Tampa Bay downs since February 1st. There's been no horses win a dirt route rallying from four lens or more off of the pace. So I think all the jockeys there, all the people betting the track are well aware of how speed favoring that main track can play. And this challenger stake is a race where I just think there's a ton of speed signed on between trademark, mighty heart, classic causeway, thoroughly furious and tax. I think we have a real chance of a real contested pace. Obviously, skipping long stockings or worse to be, but to me, you have a horse like him who wins the Harlan's holiday and then runs in the Pegasus World Cup. And I don't think that this race was initially part of their plans with him. I think they had a little bit bigger goals and he ran so poorly last time that they're sending them back here. I always get a little bit uneasy when I see these horses that are opting for another star because all of a sudden their connections might not be so sure about them. I landed on the reds. Number 6, and there's a horse that he's sappy, Joseph's other horse in this race because you'll be long stock is going to be the big favor for him. And it's a little bit of against the grain pick where he's going to be running late. But I loved his effort to starts back at Churchill downs off the layoff. In fact, I look at the reds last at last race with one turn mile. I'm not counting that against him. And he went ridiculously wide that day. And three starts back that race was a mile and a half, which was too far for him. His other races at a mile 16th are mile and 8 are he's got to win. He's got a second, these are coming at Saratoga. And then he gets beat less than a lint in an allowance race. The stakes quality allowance and mid November Churchill runs behind run classic and happy American beats and by like a head and that horse comes back and wins back to back fairgrounds. So I thought that was a really big effort. I think this horse is going to have more to offer moving forward for safi just got him last summer and I think he's going to get the right setup. So the reds at 12 to one on the morning line. I'm going to bet him, but I'm going to bet him across the board Mike and I'm going to try to catch him at a decent price. If not first, at least second. Yeah, it should be a really solid price as they lead the gate. So the reds number 6, the selection race 8 and the challenger stakes for James Scully. So James, let's just recap the twins fires triple play for this week. You're going to kick things off at Oakland, race 7. You'll go with number four back ring luck at ten to one. The 7th race at Tampa Bay downs will go in number ten, talk of the nation, four to one on the morning line, and in the 8th race at Tampa will go in number 6, the reds, who is 12 to one. So I always love when you and Vance and Joe and Scott all come on the show here and you pick horses that are value place because really you connect with one, it makes the twin spires triple play profitable. Hopefully we went with two or maybe even all three. Yeah, no doubt about it. And, you know, that gives you options. You're playing a 7 to two shot and you're spreading your money out, place it show. I mean, there's nothing more bitter than getting beat like a head with a 20 to one shot, but it's a nice consolation prize if you bet 20 to win a place on it and it pays 13, 20 to place Mike. So there's nothing wrong with running seconds of tops. If you've got money on it to run second. I remember you can

"I'm Denise Pellegrini in the Bloomberg newsroom. Crude oil futures are trading higher this hour. OPEC plus is just agreed to cut output by a 100,000 barrels a day that starts in October, according to delegates. And we're also keeping track on political developments in the UK, whereas we've been reporting Liz truss, is on track to become Britain's next prime minister, the Conservative Party is just declared her their party leader. I campaigned as a conservative and I will govern as a conservative James safi of Aberdeen though says he's concerned about the direction of the UK economy. Bank of England is really risking conjuring up the sort of balance of payments forces that led to a very, very disastrous situation in the mid to late 70s. Ultimately, we have a huge current account deficit in the UK, economic capital is weak, inflation is high. It doesn't look like a great destination for foreign investors and therefore if nobody's prepared to fund that current account deficit of a 9% of GDP at the prevailing price. And if he says this negative cycle could feed on itself and get worse. Stocks in Europe are under pressure as Russia and Gazprom as we've been reporting keep that key gas pipeline to Germany close and Bloomberg energy reporters Stephen stepinski says this is driving LNG prices higher across the globe. There's a dwindling amount of fuel available that can be encouraged for the winter. And so that's what some in direct competition. And that's also kind of helping to drive up prices, not just in Europe, but also in Asia as well. Bloomberg Stephen stepinski there. In Germany, the decks about two and a half percent lower in France, the cac about one and a half percent lower and in London the FTSE down about a half a percent.

Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake, powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than a 120 countries. In the news among Denise Pellegrini, this is Bloomberg. This is Bloomberg businessweek inside from the reporters and editors who bring you America's most trusted business magazine plus global business finance and tech news as it happens. Bloomberg businessweek with Carol messer and Bloomberg quick takes Tim steno on Bloomberg radio. Plenty ahead in our second hour of the weekend edition of Bloomberg businessweek, including the CFO of flex, it's a global manufacturing company working a defense health energy housing in more man. They have a cross section of the global economy. We're going to get his take on macro conditions. I love talking to this guy. Yeah, it's not just the cross section of the global economy. It's, you know, different types of industries. And then also just different regions of the world, really incredible company to come. And play into the supply chains, right? So so much. Yeah, really good conversation coming up. Another good conversation with historian Betsy Griffith, she discusses her new book, described by her former classmate Hillary Clinton as, quote, an essential history of the struggle by both black and white women to achieve their equal rights. First up, this hour, as the world reopens an individual shift from buying stuff to doing things such as eating out or travel, that too can create another supply demand imbalance. For clarity on that, we checked in with Debbie Sue, the CEO of the online restaurant reservation company, OpenTable, also subsidiary of the publicly traded Booking Holdings. She's got great insight into what's going on in the restaurant industry because her company gathers lots of data on whose booking what and when. She spoke with me and Bloomberg senior markets reporter, Katie greifelt. The restaurant industry has definitely seen a pickup in demand and we're still seeing that kind of post pandemic pent up demand where a lot of us have been cooped up in our houses or our apartments. And there's this need to engage and meet with people and oftentimes over a meal. And so I think we're still seeing pent up demand and people going out so that demand is really helped study even in places in New York where Goldman has requested everyone come back into the office. So New York is one of those cities where versus city like San Francisco, for example, people are coming back. You're seeing those lunchtime shifts starting to fill up. And so the city is definitely feeling more alive and certainly it is very difficult to get a reservation on a Friday night. You're also seeing in New York tourist activity and travel activity really coming back in a way that we haven't seen in the last two years. So all really encouraging signs for Manhattan. I swear, I actually got an IV during this program asking me to grab lunch in the fall from a listener and a source. So I guess are you going to go? Yeah, I'm going to go. Of course I'm going to go. That's what you call a flex, you know? Making a reservation. I mean, I'm not making the reservation. Someone else can. But in any case, W I am interested to situate this conversation in the broader economic landscape that we're living in because all we talk about all day. And of course, this is on Bloomberg, so of course we would be talking about it, but we talk about inflation. We talk about recession fears. And you are seeing this pent up demand like you say, but how resilient do you think that is in the face of some of those big issues that we talk about? As you mentioned, we're certainly in a challenging macro environment. And I think we're in unprecedented times here because we've not had a recession that's followed with a two year essential pandemic. And so we're seeing that demand continue to hold. And I think even once people stop revenge eating is what we like to call it here at open table. With the shape of work and return

"Is Bloomberg surveillance with Tom Keene, Jonathan farrow, and Lisa Abramovich. As a cheery opening, wasn't it from New York City this morning? Good morning, good morning. For our audience worldwide on safi and radio alongside Tom keen and Lisa grabbed Sam Jonathan farrow, this is Bloomberg surveillance futures. Negative a quarter of 1% on the S&P TK Home Depot earnings of about an hour ago, Walmart numbers, any minute from now. Yeah, we're looking for them to come out right now. Let's see if they're rural and out. No, they're not. We'll have to see them. They're delaying. They're like the big banks now, John, they're delaying. They say they come out at 7, but. The line to us, miss Lee. What did you make at Home Depot? 60 minutes back. I wanted me to Home Depot, as they're doing at Home Depot's done forever. I'm sure Ken langone would come out and pound the table, but we do it right. There we go with Walmart coming out right now, revenues a little bit better than the estimate, comp sales 9 and a half percent. Again, that's within a huge inflation. There's comp sales John. I love this ex gas up 7%. So the first look there in an outlook for the back half of next year, they maintain their outlook. I don't know what the outlook is. But it's the outlook. Because these retailers Walmart target, Lisa, they've had to cut their outlook a million times. They come out with their outlook, then a few weeks later they cut it and Walmart coming out this morning and maintained their outlook for the back half of full year 23. You are seeing a pop in the shares ahead of the market open up about nearly 2% after reporting better than expected earnings. How much are we seeing companies across the board, lower expectations and getting again as they revise lower before they put their earnings out and then they cross that very low bar in order to give a better sense. I mean, honestly, if they affirm their projections going back to 2023, how solid is that? I mean, what's going to change between now and next month that could potentially affect that? What did you make of that over the last couple of months later, so the fact that they come out with an outlook and then a few weeks later, similarly they cut it. I view this as trying to hedge against the liability of being accused of a lack of transparency. They're going to be over transparent. They're going to say things are looking okay. But when they don't, we will let you know. And that's basically how I view it. I wonder if investors basically take the forward guidance as less solid than they have in the past. That was diplomatic. You tried. The stocks sent by a little more than 2% in the pre market. We'll bring them a breakdown of that in just a moment. Futures look like this. Down a quarter of 1% on the S&P 500 on the NASDAQ with down a quarter of 1%. Also yields unchanged. Two 79 32 in Europe, you're looking at really, really soft invest the confidence out of Germany. Euro dollar negative a third of 1%, one O one 32 in Europe, gas prices are higher, but crude is lower and crude lower over the last couple of days to kick off this trade in weekly. So $89 a barrel on WTI, that about a half of 1% this morning. How much is that support retail sales that we get tomorrow? How much is that supporting? Some of the momentum that we get from the projections from a whole host of retailers, including target, which reports tomorrow. Today we did get Home Depot at around 6. Walmart just crossing, you can see gear to date the performance is pretty dire, Home Depot shares down 24%. And Walmart shares down a little more than 8%. What we see in Home Depot is you do see an increase in revenues a beat across the board. However, you are not seeing an increase in traffic. In other words, the actual individual sales are not increasing how much is this an inflation story. Walmart coming out, they actually saw a lesser loss in terms of earnings per share gains or earnings per share. Year over year performance. So this is better than expected. However, they are dealing with a very difficult moment, especially with the types of things that people are buying, which are shifting very quickly. At 8 30 a.m., we get July housing starts and building permits. This falls, we saw yesterday. A massive plunge in the whole builder sentiment on the heels of where we're seeing a mortgage costs, the fact that rates have gone up so much. Do we see housing starts slowed down as a result? This is really the push pull in the housing industry. How much does the lack of supply end up propping up prices for longer than people can stand it in a 9 15 a.m. we eat the latest read on auto manufacturing July industrial production and John, I'm looking for a sense to confirm what we saw in the empire manufacturing survey. Was that a one off? The second biggest plunge in terms of empire manufacturing sentiment going back and data to 2001, do we get a re confirmation of that in the auto sectors and other manufacturers, especially ahead of the next ISM read? You're not just on the pandemic broke the chart. It always does every single chat we have the pandemic just breaks the chart. Yeah, and right now we're seeing some volatility. It starts getting close in certain metrics. And that I think is fascinating. Raymond, thank you. Decent day ahead. I'm not going to say big day ahead, Tom, I don't even want to say big week ahead. We're light on economic data. We've got retail sales. Got a bit of fed speak here and there, some fed minutes Tom. Coming up tomorrow. I think a lot of it is the earnings story and what the stock market's doing, John. Again, as they say, I think yesterday was crucially important for the stock market. Everybody's gonna readjust to that buried in the Walmart release John and it's not a clumsy release, but there's not a lot of percent clarity in it, but two inside baseball things are Walmart. They're gross profit rate. The margin I believe was down a 132 basis points. 1.32 percentage points as well. And I love this language, John, just one expense idea. This is a new phrase I've never seen this John wage investments. Could you one day Tom write an article on the press releases that you do like and the press releases you don't like? What I like is based on the fun style, the graphics. Well, no, usually if the form and the style isn't there, it's because they're trying to hide something. That's usually the case. What I want to see, John, is a trend towards clarity and particularly the big banks. They're dramatically clearer than they were 5 or 6 or 7 years ago and I'll be honest folks with the power of Bloomberg, we talked to these people and they really want to know John how to make it clear. Mostly speak English. Well, I speak English right now. We can do that with Anastasia Romero so the chief investment strategist that I capital Anastasia, the S&P up 17% from the June low, then ask that 100 up close to 23% from the June low. When do we stop calling this a bear market rally? Well, maybe you're right about now, John. And I think the market probably does not move materially higher from here. I think 4300 will likely continue to be a resistance. But probably the biggest takeaway

And now i see women lining the streets of kabul hitter protesting the same way and yet the situation that they will face what they will endure. Fear is far more horrific and gruesome times.

Hundreds Missing After Deadly Flooding in Germany
"And victims of the deadly flooding there earlier this week. More than 160. People are confirmed dead and hundreds more are unaccounted for. Several countries were affected, but by far the hardest hit has been Germany. A number of communities there have been devastated with roads washed out and hundreds of homes and businesses destroyed. Many residents whose homes are still standing can't get into them now as authorities keep people away for fear of mudslides, Spink are Safi had that happened to him today. He is a resident of ER stat, a town near Cologne that suffered severe damage I tried today. To go there and check if I can collect some documents, an important things I have there, but the police told us that there is no water right now. But because of the heavy flooding, there is the danger of land sliding that houses may Slide down. Safi and his three Children were forced to evacuate their home on Thursday afternoon. As the floodwaters rose. His wife was away at the time and wasn't allowed back into town by police. Have since been reunited, and the family is safe now, but the town is in ruins, Saffi says. Police and firefighters continue to comb through what's left looking for survivors, the fear that there are more than 30 cars, which Were stuck under flooding, and they fear that they will find more bodies as they search the cars There were above I think

"The stages of like creating like i had no idea again like no clue how this work And they were very patient in lovely a major that the book like looks great but yeah i think from the very beginning. It was like. I knew. I wanted every chapter to start with a comic and then eileen on matins safi. It'd be like peaches. Like going to be doable for artists but also enticing and feel like enough pages to really get into it right because like we could have done and some of the people we talked to some of the publishers wanted like a two page comic and then mostly the essay and i really wanted it to be able to get into the characters not that you can't do that in two pages but to give them a little more breathing room and so we give every artisan option for like a page range right like they didn't have to do like sixteen or whatever most of them actually ended up opting to like go almost the full length if not the full length of the sixteen to kind of get into it but once sophie pitched it and i got it in my head i was like i was pretty clear on what i wanted. Well it's it's a feet. The book feels like a feet to me. I'm interested in how you make choices with the work too because the the bucket you have set up for yourself which feels to me like one of the more sort of like brilliant conceits for show that exists out there. 'cause you you could make the show for the rest of time right. There are infinite futures. Is that dante to you. The fact that like this can conceivably never end or or is that exciting neither. It's like i think about this a lot. Actually because there was a period of time about two and a half years ago when things were not going for the show listeners. Were way down my ads. Sales company like sold zero ads on the entire year of the show. And i was like okay. Is this the end of the road for flat for right like and i do believe that like not everything needs to go on forever. Not every project has to be like an infinity project until like i was trying to think through like how will i know when flash forward is done like how will i know to end something. It's hard right. Like i think a lot of shows go through this right where they like changed hosts. I you know. Don't have the same kind of golden handcuffs. Some of the like have to kind of keep going because they whole staffs to like keep employed and whatever. But i wanted to think through like how will. I know that it's time to be like that was a good run move onto other projects an a really great answer for that still but the thing i was thinking about i feel like i'm still learning things not just like content wise but also learning about what i'm interested in how to make the show and sort of about fiction or reporting or whatever it is and do i feel like the show is providing something to the audience that like has a function. That other isn't being filled elsewhere and when those two things no longer are true. When i feel like i'm just sort of going through the motions and doing the same thing and not learning anything and also that like maybe they can get the same kind of stuff elsewhere. That will probably be when. I decided it's time to be done. But the actual number of like possible episodes is very freeing. Because i don't feel like. Oh god i mean i do. Sometimes you're like. Oh god what are we going. Do like what the next set of episodes like it never feels like that wherever run into some sort of like natural limit that like you've interviewed all the people you can interview. You know about this thing right interesting that you're gonna win gonna stop learning because i feel like it is so broad in a way like it's it's essentially like a blank canvas for your own curiosity. Yeah yeah and it can go anywhere. I can be like. I wanna make a mini season about this topic in the future right like literally. There's a episode recently which is also in the book about smart cities which feels to me like a super straightforward version of the show. It has this amazing thing at the top about like you know sentient park benches and like i listened to it. Walking through the park was looking at a bench was just like holy shit. That is actually like that could happen. That could happen to kind of part of what i'm interested in is like how much of this is driven by things. You're trying to figure out in twenty twenty one rather than helping other people figure out the future. I think the secret to any and all science fiction is that it's always about the president right like that's sort of true of any sifi that you ever read is that that's like people trying to figure out how to live now versus you. Know moon colonies right like ours. Look-a-like winds books are not about going to the mood. There about a lot of them are not all of them. I think some of them. Are i think about the episodes in two big buckets. One of them is like weird shit. I'm interested in where i'm like. I wanna learn about like like we didn't episode recently. About what would it be like if you could be like immune to all poison vetoed everything and that just literally came out of because i got a press release about like snakes that use magnetic techniques to like attract and repel others venom inside their bodies and i was like. That's fucking awesome. Like that's really cool and interesting and then i kind fell down a rabbit hole of like yeah like how does venom work and learned a ton of stuff about it. And it's like things that. I just find like cool and weird and interesting. That's like one bucket and the other one is like things. I'm trying to figure out like. How do you make a better future. How should we be. How are we supposed to think about these things like. Should i care about blank or do. I not actually need to care about that. Because there's so many things to get freaked out about. I think in the news and stuff and so like part of it is me being like okay on a scale of one to ten. Like how much. Should i worry about starlink right like is that like i think i should be thinking about all the time or i should be thinking about like once a month or whatever. It is them to or not. Yeah exactly and so some of it is that and also just like trying to think through. What is a good solution. I don't put a lot of stock in the idea that like you can't critique things if you don't have a solution because like i think it's bullshit but like some of what i think about is if i know that i don't want that future like what would it actually look like to not have like how. How do you avoid it sort of questions of what could i do now. That might help our things. I think a lot about sort of use the show in some ways to like work through are there. Examples of data are the things that you can draw a direct line between work. You've done on the show and something that's changed whether it's about you or the way you live or in your life. One of the things you learn doing the interviews for years and years and years is that people are like always writing about themselves and some level even like war. Correspondents you know. They're trying to figure something out themselves and listening to the show. I have wandered over the years. Whether like this stuff that you're really working out and why and whether it's impacting your life. Now yeah the most obvious example. I think is i am sort of like obsessed with the way that humans and animals interact and like why we think the things we do about animals. It's it's sort of a running joke among flash listeners. Now because they know that like there's always to be some weird. Because i'm like why is it that we think about facial recognition in people a lot but then we just use it on animals like that's no problem. Is that a thing we should be worried about. People are like why like. That's a ridiculous question. But i don't think it's a ridiculous question so i think probably the most most obvious example is i didn't episode about animal testing sort of the future of animal testing. Because i was like. I don't actually totally understand this and like i don't understand what is necessary. What is not necessarily like. How should i be thinking about this. You know all of that. But we do a lot of animal related episodes. Because i am just like i have a pet dog and i think a lot about like how weird it is that cubans have domesticated animal like. Just weird start thinking about like there's this creature that i like has has some sort of internal life right like whatever it is and i like put a leash and i walk around. It's just like weird you know just thinking through like how much do they understand about the world and if we if we really knew how animals think would we do the things that we do to the i dunno just like. That's a big one. That i am like constantly trying to figure out in my own life. And then therefore amish. Oh it's like animals category. Is that curiosity that you're talking about. Is that.

"You know we gotta go do a little bit more intelligence gathering and you know determining kind of what attacks could we throw at this thing than we were staying in. The on prem would imagine that open source intelligence or oh since i think it's typically called right is something that is of great value when you're trying to approach something where you don't have really a good knowledge of how something works It sounds like that's that's the way i'm thinking. Yeah yeah no is exactly right Osen one of. I think the most interesting parts of pen testing to learning what is out there publicly available We also have Access to a dark web provider and so part of reconnaissance that we're doing you know in line with oshima's were searching dark web for information. What kind of credentials compromise credentials out there that we might be able to leverage problems. Ever gonna go away with people reusing passwords. But when you have that. This is why it's so important to not reuse passwords is. Because you know it's it's possible that that username password combination has already been compromised is available on the dark web and then we can simply lift sat out of there and use the same information to gain access to the corporate network s seen a lot of products recently tout their ability to have access to compromise passwords right. In as part of the products they can either flagged user or prompted the change of password or whatever may be which to be irritating for the end user. I'm sorry your email address and password apparently already out for sale and it's probably dirt cheap. That's right. I have to imagine that the entire pen testing community has some level of competition around it. How competitive is it. Maybe even internally but compared with other organizations where you is there a a cool factor for being able to break something or to discover something How is your team approach. That totally so..

What Really interesting and the client was like can't fix stupid. I don't know But then you have on principles of least privilege so we see where companies are. Not you know auditing or revalidated ing that need of that particular account. Maybe somebody moves onto a different position within the company but privileges that they had in the previous role are never revoked. So they have more access than they should have or people leave the organization and that access isn't revoke so some of some of the most basic things were still seeing on and you know we're we're encouraging as part of our recommendations or remediation results Look back at that. am strategy you know. Adopting not mindset of zero trust and and things like that nevada darker chase cunningham on a couple of episodes ago and one of the key points us mayton was that the attacks are moving downstream. So maybe they were. The kind of the high value targets like government organizations utilities financial institutions. They've been investing so heavily in security that it takes a phd in hacking to these so a lot of the happens moving downstream donald level to other organizations. Who you know there still value for jimmy stolen from these organizations but maybe they don't have all these things in place and if you go further down. The chain companies are more underinvested. I'll in insecurity. Msa comes on the basic blocking and tackling in this. Get easier while you might not be pulling thousands of credit card. Numbers are millions of credit card numbers.

"Help clients to figure out how to prioritize the abilities. There's a lot of commercial off the shelf products out there To do scanning we'll just we'll just leave it scanning right now But how do you. How do you prioritize those so some of the things that we integrate into our clients scanning results are there asset information. So do they have a cmv. Can we help them. Make sure that they're seeing db there. Acid database is robust with information. On you know all of their assets what credited lives on them will kind of criticality. Are they Things like that. That would be part of the if you will for figuring out how to prioritize fixing our abilities. The next most important part is weaponization of owner abilities. So when you run that scan and you get that big list which ones are actually being targeted by criminals. That's very important. And they're being targeted am. Those should probably be moved up on the list. So it's a combination of prioritization or starts a combination of the weaponization of the vulnerabilities out there by the criminals and the asset criticality than we re rank. How those things should be addressed now. Getting to kind of win and win. Would you do pen testing. What are kind of the best practices out there. Things like that. So i mean generally on you know when you're talking about the upset world you know you'll hear buzzwords like dev ops and shift left and things like that and you know it is important that there is a security vulnerability testing cross us throughout the upset life cycle on and getting those abilities remediated during development. It's a lot less expensive to get owner. Abilities remediated the development of an application than after it's been released into production so we do a lot of work in helping clients to set up those kinds of programs And they're continuous Can continuous You know development to newest remediation of things like that from a pen testing perspective.

I'm just interested in getting started really. It's about that passion. That's what i look for. And those are some of the resources they can start to use to you. Know get get up to speed and really learn and see if this is something that might be interesting to them and then the technical stuff can come later. it's definitely important But if you don't have the right mindset and the right passion and that curiosity going into it. I don't think you can be as successful. Natural probably lends itself well to this type of role. You mentioned a few different resources. That that's You're familiar with one of mine. Is i like reddit. Sub reddit called how to hack. I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about. Sometimes but i find it extremely valuable to peruse through the Top ix and educate myself as much. As i want to be i guess at this point on some of the difference. Pass that people are taking. So that's probably another resource. If folks interesting on there is check out the the how to hack a sub reddit I like that one. There's there's a lot of good stuff energy materials right on howard to certain things that obviously should be done where you have permission to do so so we don't get into trouble But that is definitely something. Because i find it it can be difficult to keep up with the space and all the different things that are you know at risk or could be at risk from different systems in seems like there is some zero day exploit happening on a weekly if not daily basis and you're probably closer to then but i would be but what are some of the techniques that you use to kind of stay. Sharpen this base to be able to apply what you know with that. Curiosity mindset of how to break it cherry out so it is. It is challenging to stay ahead of things in this space. So actually what. I've done with my organization is i have leaders in the different areas and their job is to stay focused on you know what are the latest greatest thing so for example have person who is our head of application security. A person who's head of network pen testing someone who's the head of red teaming someone who's the head of social engineering. That's their job to really stay informed. You know what's going on. What's the latest. are their owner abilities out. There is a tools team. That weaponized vulnerabilities that we use on our engagements and We are starting to put out more thought leadership. So you know when. I started here particularly Really solid business. A great business. Fifteen plus years of doing pen testing But i wanted to take it to the next level. And so you know i came in and and my focus is a really on one of the focused. I should say israeli on that external promotion and getting making sure people know what it is that we are doing out there. that they've heard of productivity in our thought leadership and so again. I focused people in these key areas. So they can stay up on the latest ingredients in that particular area and then we have a lot of internal like sharing of information. We do a law of lunch.

So there's a a very big component air and you know since that is where most breaches are starting from our. that's how they occur. It is naturally one of the first things. Pentastar seek out. Because that's what criminals would do so by kinda dive into that a little bit more You know it's easier to go. Undetected as a hacker if you can use a legitimate username and password to gain access right so you might ask. How does one go about even getting access to a legitimate username and password. If we're not talking about some kind of insider threat situation we're really talking about outside criminal so there's a few different ways that that can be accomplished in. I'm gonna. I'm gonna keep it simple because we get down too much of a technical rabbit hole. Probably get tripped up here too. But some of the most basic raise are through brute force password guessing and what's really freeze e that this is still an issue is that we do a lot of what we call open source intelligence gathering so we look at publicly available information about people and we try to guess their password because people are still using passwords like summer twenty twenty or one of the one of the most common password right now is corona virus twenty twenty one or virus twenty twenty or you know something with them kind of what's happening in our world. Even you know election related words things like that so we're able to often root force people's passwords just by understanding the person you know. What are they posting.

The COVID-19 vaccine is nothing short of a technology miracle
"Vaccines are being administered. This week in the uk less than a year after covid nineteen became a devastating pandemic and the vaccines from pfizer in partnership with biontech and the one from maduna use a new type of vaccine technology. That's sort of like engineering. Traditional vaccines introduced fragments of virus protein into the body for its learn to recognize an attack. These vaccine use something. Called messenger are a or m are in a to give the body a blueprint to manufacture its own virus fragments to attack safi because the biotech investor and author of loon shots how to nurture the crazy ideas that win wars cure diseases and transform industries few weeks ago my wife and i bought one of these vaccines cleaning robots. That goes around your room. Now you can think of your body is full of these. Little robots and those robots are the proteins inside your body that. Get the job done. They do all sorts of tasks about twenty years ago. Twenty five years ago a group of scientists asked a question where do those robots inside. Our body come from turns out our body. Has these little three d. printers churning out those robots. they're call bribes zones but you can think of them just as three d. printer and you feed and instruction sheet into that printer and it spits out a robot so the scientists had this really crazy idea and they said what about if instead of like growing the drug outside in a lab in manufacturing it and injecting it. We just slip them a little piece of paper with the software code. So that the three d. printers inside our body generate their own vaccines and that's what the m. are a drug is an example of you know i mean this is vaccine development at a speed that no one's ever seen before combined with of course ongoing medical breakthroughs that keep happening. What is all of this suggests for the next pandemic. i think it's incredibly encouraging amarna fragile. So you need to code it and something that will protect. And that's actually why it took so many years to develop because just getting that protective coating right. It's very
The tech behind the search for a COVID-19 vaccine
"This week on marketplace tech, we're reporting on the innovations that will help us transition to a post pandemic feature, a lot of hopes are pinned on a vaccine for covid nineteen, and there are in fact, a lot of efforts on that front. Some combined the old ways of making vaccines with new techniques, suppose instead of manufacturing all these viruses are protein, fragments or dead viruses and using that as a vaccine. Suppose we skip that step. Safi call is a biotech investor and author. He's describing technique for vaccine development that was invented a decade ago and just take the code for making that fragment. And give it to the body's cells. So instead of having a giant lab and a warehouse, cranking out these proteins that we then put into lots of vials and deliver billions of doses around the world. Your own cells will be the manufacturing plant while this technique is super promising, it hasn't yet lead to a successful vaccine any disease mainly because there's a huge shortage of funding, the problem is there hasn't been enough incentive to work in infectious disease. SARS cove one which came out eighteen years ago. The first sort of version of the SARS virus, eighty percent genetically identical to the current SARS Cov virus. We had started some promising work in promising drugs and promising vaccines against that first SARS. Virus. Some of which may have been enormously helpful these days there is plenty of incentive to both cure and treat covid nineteen, because says even by the time we get a vaccine, we might have much better success at preventing deaths from the virus like HIV. There's no vaccine, but drug development has turned the virus from a fatal condition to a chronic one. Every month we get more data wet drug works, and it's not just the exciting stuff of Heya scientists in the lab came up with this awesome new molecule that nobody ever saw before and radicals the virus on first contact. That's not how it works. Sometimes it's like well a pretty boring old drug. That none of us thought mattered very much. Actually works or the right combination by itself. It's okay, but if you combine a and B, it's really amazing. Those are kind of the they. They don't make sexy headlines. But they're really important.
