"Another theory is that this virus got a foothold in the hospital system. Before doctors realized there was a problem and that might have amplified the outbreak. So something like ten percent of medical workers in Lombardy have been infected. There's also speculation about whether covert nineteen has been particularly severe in Italy because they have an aging population and we know that the virus hits elderly people particularly hard. But the bottom line I think is that the government was forced into this catch-up position a reaction mode like as as soon as they found cases so Italy certainly isn't unique in that sense but I think there's sort of representative of what can happen if the virus does get a foothold in a country. How quickly it can spread in how fast things can spiral house. Italy's medical system has been able to cope with the rising numbers so Italy has a system of universal public health care so they're like Canada or the UK but Italy wasn't prepared for the surge in sick people that they've seen and so doctors there have gone public about just how unprepared the health system. Was there not enough hospital beds? Not Enough Space. In intensive care units to treat people in the more severe form of this disease people need ventilators for help with breathing and Italy hasn't had that so The you have these doctors taking to social media and writing about how they've been forced to ration care and choose who treat war now here. Recently a few doctors wrote a letter to the rest of Europe. Saying get ready. You might look like Italy in a few days so so make sure that you are prepared and you. You don't see this complete deluge of your health system what happened. Lamberti is just like a bomb that exploded. You know the problem is that it exploded there and before you career is what's happening. You are like overwhelmed by the masters patients so hopefully in other countries. It's not behaving like this. What's important to know? Is that where this outbreak started in the north? It's one of the richest regions in Europe. So this isn't an Italian backwater. This is an economic powerhouse and they have a very strong health system there but again what seems to have caught them off guard is that the case counters escalated so fast. That's what makes this example particularly frightening because you have a place with a strong health system that in theory should have been able to respond to this kind of crisis but wasn't and so the implications for the US like like. I have spoken to ex director of the CDC OTHER HEALTH EXPERTS. Who say something like this could play out in the US. And so if we haven't had a wakeup call yet about how effectively this virus can spread how it can overwhelm health systems. How it can obviously have massive reverberating effects on the economy? Italy should be that warning. You're saying it's frightening. I mean I hope it's okay to ask. I mean you're about to have a baby and you know you're in Austria which is right next to Italy guessing. This is more than just a story. You're covering so I would. What is amazing to me? Is how quickly This outbreak went from being something that was like a far off problem in China to a worldwide threat and something. That's very personal to my home. My husband was traveling in Asia. I didn't know when he came back if he would have to be quarantined. While I was going into Labor what would happen. Um I've had family have to cancel their trips. Who are coming to see the baby. They were supposed to have soon. One of the obstetrical wards in Vienna shutdown cities have shut down schools universities. My due date is next week and I'm wondering if my hospital will still be open and if my doctor will still be there I've had I've had some of my sources you know. I'm pregnant suggest that I should get induced to avoid the peak transmission here in in Vienna.

So you can tune out what's happening on the nation and not here okay. Are we ready for number one. So you guys. Trump was doing some impeachment counter programming this week by presenting a totally dead on arrival Middle East peace plan. And it's the it ends all the problems that's done in a he did it. He says quote a prior administrations from President Lyndon in Johnson of tried and bitterly failed. But I was not elected to do small things or shy away from big problems I mean he's right in. That impeachment is a big problem that he can't showing from. Hey the most fun thing about the rollout was that. He didn't even pretend that he actually was creating a plan for both parties. Because the only person that was there during the announcement was bb Netanyahu also under. Maybe the win win thing getting determined. He's in the process. I mean they're going to have another election time. I can't tell awesome so he has like all the other coming up because they wanted this outright before that right we should have more elections a yeah we should disband congress everytime every time feels like we're always having election true. Let's just do more often. I agree with that. Will guys let me tell you some of the main points that were in this Middle East peace. He's plan and I want you to tell me I think so. I of Israel keeps the vast majority of Jerusalem as its sovereign capital Palestinians. Get no right of return. Turn it. Redraws borders mainly between Israel and the West Bank in a dozen allow for Palestine to create a fighting force to defend itself. Alf those are just some of the top line points. What do you say and we should stress? It redraws borders in Israel's favor right all right so the the the plan is largely I in Israel's favor and in the the it basically creates a situation where Palestine is like discontinue tig you and discontinuance archipelagic wait aren't archipelago alcoholic. I already knew what that was pronunciation was bucking need. You guys thank you for letting us feel good God. Yeah they're like it's split and then they're going to have to make a huge tunnel or makes a really doesn't doesn't make any sense but also I don't know if you guys figured this out. They weren't consulted so they weren't consulted but they were also like the US obviously obviously partial to the United States the partial to Israel. So like we don't we don't want to like take on a peace deal being brokered by them in the first place. They're not an impartial. L. Broker also isn't it take like three years that they get to think about it. In which case all the elections have already passed and the fifty billion dollars that trump is promising. The Palestinians Alestinian. They live in these right. He's like you'll make all this money but we don't have to think about it now. I just wanted to ready to know that this is finished. Don't worry about it. It's not happening totally done. I don't think it really worked either even as a counter program. Because everyone's just talking about John Bolton and I don't really know who was like. Oh wait stop everything. The president's the jared Kushner solved the Middle East. We figure it out. It looks like he didn't food..

"Cards Americans who take out loans and Americans who issue the lenders to. Literally said, we're working for the credit card companies and the banks. So under Mick Mulvaney, tenure does does the CF PB lose a lot of staff. Yes. So staff is way down and then you can see the results the actual enforcement actions are down about seventy five percent and the fines are much smaller. So even when they to take an enforcement action. These are tiny fine slaps on the wrist. They've dropped a bunch of lawsuits. There was an office of fair lending that looked at discriminatory practices of loans, an incredibly important mission for this if baby and he took it out of one office and put it under the director, which is seen as a way of cutting. The the mission of that Mulvaney is not in charge anymore, right know, movies non-charged anymore. He went back to being me Ownby director and Trump named this kind of faceless bureaucrat Kathleen Cranach her as as the head of the agency. Cranberry. Incidentally, sort of looked like she might be a breath of fresh air. She restored the original name to the place, which was of quite a savvy political move because nobody thought it was a good idea. And she could it was very easy way to score points. And she had the appearance of being a kind of kinder gentler administrator. And then in her first big action. She reversed this payday lending rule. And they basically rolled back to big provisions. One was the rule said you have to underwrite these borrowers. But that means is you have to know, whether the borrowers can repay you can't give money to people who can't repay because that's that's just predatory. So you need to undertake some effort to understand what their financial situation is in. Whether they have the wherewithal or the future income to pay this loan back. The second thing is they tried to limit these -secutive loans the payday lenders make their money by having these poor borrowers roll over their loans. One after another after another and tacking on fees after each one until they make their money back and more so many times over and so what the payday lending rule was going to do is limit their ability to. Roll those over to and the Trump administration Kranjcar has ruled back those two things and said, you don't have to underwrite and there's no limit on consecutive loans. How much of the original mandate of the organization what was set up under. The Obama administration remains does the organization have have any teeth left's? Well regulation is about the people who are in the regulator personnel matters. And it's something that democratic administrations have not fully understood this. I think they thought the rules kinda take care of themselves and the regulators run on the power of civil servants. And that's not really true. It really matters who the heads of these agencies are what is this particular hollowing out mean for people one when will they see and how might it look. Well, I think it's gonna mean that life is meaner and tougher and more dangerous and people will be more vulnerable in the coming years. I don't know if we could draw line to today, if you went on the street and found people or barely getting by whether that you can blame the Trump administration for that or the C P for that that might be a little bit unfair. But in a few years people are going to be back to being in hock to payday lenders all across the country, and that will be because of the Trump administration and military families will run into problems with loans and be exploited with bad insurance products and things like that. And that will be because the Trump administration. This is going to have a real effect on real people at some point in the near future. Jesse Eisenberg is a senior porter at propublica. We reached out to the consumer financial protection bureau for comment. But no one wrote back. I'm Sean Rotherham this today explained..

"Just wanna. See, thank you for watching the match. From what happened in terms of the way that the players spoke on the podium, great sportsmanship, great leadership, and I think a great job done by both of them to to sort of save the moment. But I would argue also that you know the damage was already done by. Coming up Williams Osaka instantly goes from being a tennis match to a roar Shak test for your attitudes on sports and fairness and gender, and race and tradition. Whatever this is today. Explain. Hey, Jeff. Bird. Hey, it's Sean Rotherham how you doing. Really. You tune? Well, I'm calling you from Washington DC. You're in Toronto, Canada, right? International college? Yeah, that's right. And I'm calling internationally to tell you about transfer wise because you're my friend. You're great friend and one time when I came to visit you in Toronto as a great friend, you just gave me ten bucks. We're like, hey, have one on me, and I just want to let you know that with transfer wise, you could just do that digitally. You could just send me money internationally any time like you could send me ten bucks right now. So if I'm following correctly, the international character of this cau- dovetails quite well. With the nature of the product, nailed it. Yeah, you can try the app for free when you go to transfer wise dot com slash today. Amazing. I think I might do that flash today. Okay, Caitlyn. So we got Serena saying, this is about equality. We've got Osaka saying, I'm just glad to have won. Thanks, please leave me alone. We've got the US Tennis Association saying, we need to figure this out. They slap Serena with the requisite fines. But then something happens, which is, of course the mob reacts and what does the mob to as far as I can tell in the media circles, I inhabit this ignites a firestorm, mostly pro Serena pro women pro empowerment. This can be seen as part of women's fight for quality, working mother. Think pieces hot takes up, ED's television appearances. Everyone's got something to add into this, which I think is great. There is real inequality in the game, right? Just a week earlier. Female player got fine for changing her shirt on court while wearing a sports bra. While you know when there was a break in a match later on in the tournament Novak, Djokovic took his shirt off and like lean back with his hands behind his head and sort of had a big grin on his face and basked in, you know, having a little bit of ventilation. So women are fine for taking their shirts off and not exposing anything. Men take their shirts off and are celebrated for this is a game where there is a fair amount of double standards going on. Right? I mean, Novak. Djokovic who won the men's singles, title has gone on the record talking about whether or not women actually deserved to be paid equally. So like, yeah, this is a pretty certainly misogynous sport. Right before this tournament started this US open the French Open based in Paris, which takes place in late spring, announced a rule change to their clothing policy and the cat suit, and they specifically called out Serena Williams is outfit from this year. Her one z. that was dubbed by a lot of players as the catsuit would be banned next year. Now Serena took this sort of in stride and said, when it comes to fashion, you don't wanna be a repeat offender. So while before this even has to come up and didn't sort of wanna take on the implications of her getting singled out in a French tennis federation announcement from another grand slam basically saying, we didn't like how you looked at this turnament and we're gonna make sure that nobody especially, you feels like they can look that way. Again, especially Serena said that this catsuit was actually meant to prevent these blood clots that she had dealt with post pregnancy. Yeah, exactly. It was made of a material that helped her circle. Nation and in talking about how agreed just this was and how terribly unfair this was and how mill outfits don't get police. I was recalling literally all the ways that Serena Williams has been policed her whole career her whole life. I would imagine, you know, obviously she famously grew up playing on the public tennis courts in Compton after being born in Michigan and was raised by a dad who didn't know anything about tennis, but learned it from books and took her and her sister out to the court and was determined to make them champions. You can see an early interview with Venus, her sister where an interviewer is basically trying to pry from her her confidence. Think. So I can Peter. You know. Very confident. You say it so easily. Why. Because I believe.

"Steer headed by the Sacramento. District attorney's office began to use ancestry websites that have compiled public DNA profiles based on people who've submitted their own DNA samples to the websites. The began looking at one website in particular called GED match to see if they could pair the east area rapist and a DNA sample that they had from one of the original night soccer cases to an existing DNA profile on one of these websites. And they looked and they looked and they looked. And then on Thursday, April nineteenth eighteen faith out. They found a guy. His name is Joseph James Giancarlo, and he'd been living in citrus heights, which is one of the areas where multiple attacks of the eastern Arabia's took place in the seventies even living there. The entire time police immediately put him under surveillance and by Friday they had obtained a discarded DNA sample. Judger tans. Angelo had probably thrown something out in the trash could've been a straw, drink cotton swab. Anything. And law enforcement surveilling the house collected it and they had a match. James Dangelo and lived in Sacramento for most of his life. He had gone to school in the area between nineteen seventy three and nineteen seventy nine. When the most active period of his crimes took place Jesse, James Angelo worked as a police officer in nineteen seventy nine. He was in fact fired from his police officer position because he was caught shoplifting dog repellent and a hammer you might ask, why would anyone wanna shoplift something like a hammer dog repellent? Well, if you're gonna use it for something very specific, you don't want that receipt to be in your record when he was arrested for shoplifting in nineteen seventy nine. He faced trial, but immediately pled no contest. You might say that he was eager to let that incident die quickly before thirties could look further Jesuit. Jen's Angelo also served in the navy in Vietnam, which added fuel. To the longstanding belief that he had had some sort of military training and that he had had some sort of marine training to type intricate nonce. The tied recently, one of his daughters moved into the house along with a granddaughter, authorities have said that family members are cooperating with police and that family members had no idea. Their father and grandfather was the Golden State killer. DNA evidence isn't a thousand percent accurate, but in this case, we had very specific reasons for believing that all of these cases are connected. We have DNA matches in several of the original nights soccer cases. We also have DNA evidence in multiple instances of Easter rapist cases. Those DNA samples have been matched together and because they have multiple DNA samples obtained from multiple cases. It's very, very, very unlikely that police have targeted the wrong person. Cops and California would have never caught the Golden State killer without DNA evidence, but the way the us DNA might set this really problematic precedent. That's an a beat. This today explained. This right? You've been to a mattress firm and actually bought a mattress ter-. Yes, you are. Rare breed might parents did to be fair as I was twelve. You're twelve years old. If you remember the experience. I do remember it really distinctly because we bought a new house. I was sleeping on twin mattress for twelve years. We went to the mattress firm which was Jain Ormuz. It was in Texas. It was extra big, and my expectation was getting a full bed. Then my dad took me over to the queens area and I lost my mind and the mattress firm guy in huge like talk to me directly. Did you see my expert? Definitely. I thought some like foamy crap was what I wanted. You know, some like weird soft stuff and go water. What a twelve year old Vaughn. Exactly. Like we don't have those here. They deal in the real over there, and he knew that's why I've had the same for sixteen years and it's still comfortable. Wait. This does a Celica backers probably. Anymore. I'm Sean Rotherham. This is today explained. We can easily be happy that a serial crime has been solved. But the way the Golden State killer was caught has been keeping Steve Mercer up at night. It is alarming for many people who find out that DNA that they have shared for one purpose is being used for an entirely different purpose. The cops started with some Golden State killer DNA, and then they tested that DNA to develop this much larger profile. This ancestry profile that looks at about seven hundred thousand places on the human genome has a lot more information in it. They ran this DNA through a genealogy site and open source genealogy site. Paul GED so long Forsman had to create some user account. They got this way distant relative. Then they created this massive family tree. And one branch leads to Joseph. James, the Angelo in citrus heights, right outside Sacramento got some notification of a potential relative went, and, but this person under surveillance and then collected what's called abandoned DNA. And evidently it was a perfect match and on the strength of that match has charged him. It all sounds like really good detective work, but ownership of DNA is a tricky thing. If you submit a sample to ancestry dot com because you want to investigate your family, ancestry few look through their terms and conditions. They will tell you, you own your DNA. Well, that sounds very reassuring. Steve Mercer has been litigating at the intersection of DNA and civil liberties for twenty years. He teaches law at the university of the district of Columbia, and he says, we're all at risk of another Facebook, Cambridge, Analytica type situation where your data. Gets shared without your approval except this time it's the most personal data.
