Air France, Austrian Flights Canceled as Russia Denies Belarus Bypass

"Air france and austrian airlines have both had to cancel services after their flight plans were rejected by moscow will for more on this. I'm joined by mark audie. Who's the principal director at my intelligence and a senior associate fellow at the royal united services institute in london and i'm also joined by multiple twenty four security correspondent ben. Ben i'll start with you Maybe can you deconstruct this for us. A little just we're supposed to be getting back into the air Airlines are very excited that they can of course be getting passengers and crisscrossing oliver europe We have this Small blockade or certainly some aircraft to have been turned around to entering russian aerospace It's quite unfortunate timing isn't it but it's all part of a wider context so we all remember that sundays saw this shocking version of a ryanair flight to minsk in belarus and the arrest of one passenger in opposition journalists and the us immediate sanctions were banning belarus in alliance from landing in the eu and ordering airlines to avoid belarussian aspects since then bellarusse is a whole on the radar. Almost can make out the the borders of the country on a map. Because there's no flights above it. It also meant that. Some flights between the eu and russia had to change routes and apparently now russian authorities are unwilling to accept that and declined those flights by f. haas genera. It isn't entirely clear. Why it's only those airlines and whether there are technically shoes to blame related to these route changes or if there are mostly political motivations for example signaling that russia standard belarus and that it's flexing its muscles and emphasizing the importance of its aviation market an airspace

How Capital Invents Staffing Crises to Bust Unions and Depress Wages

"Every few weeks it seems we hear about some essential industry suffering from a critical quote unquote labor shortage. Nurses truck drivers software engineer teacher. Construction according to corporate trae groups and their media mouthpieces these industries simply can't find trained workers to fill their ranks but a closer examination of claims of worker shortages reveals that there's very rarely an actual labor shortage at all what there is however time and again is a pay shortage. Industry is not wanting to provide adequate compensation or safe work conditions for the available labor force. That is perfectly willing and ready to work instead of a worker shortage. There's a not hyper liquidity in the labor market problem for capital the perfectly capable and trained workers that industries do have easily replaceable. Potentially or already unionized and making demands of capital that those industries simply don't like in an effort to increase the labor pool and thus give capital more leverage over existing workers corporate lobbying groups constantly whine about labor shortages knowing the media. Will mindlessly repeat. These claims without any skepticism are evidence to increase recruiting of new potential employees promote legislation that loosens licensing or health and safety standards and reinforces media. Ready means that. American workers are lazy and greedy. Pr extra capital routinely evoked the spectacle of worker shortages knowing full weather claims will be unquestionably repeated by american media. Who never bothered. Ask why they're reporting on the same suppose labor shortages every year for the past thirty years later on the episode we'll be joined by kevin cashman senior associate at the center for economic and policy research.

The united states is now said to be considering sending warships into the black sea. This is not necessarily a huge deal the.

Markle start with the big question. Do we know what. Russia's intentions towards ukraine actually are right. Now we certainly don't and to be perfectly honest. That's how moscow wants to keep it whether there's some major military offensive plan his pie unlikely but the key thing is this is very much about bringing pressure to bear on ukraine and in that respect as far as moscow's concerned the more uncertainty the better.

Charles Yu Talks About Interior Chinatown

"Charles. You joins us now from irvine california. His latest novel is interior. Chinatown at just won the national book award for fiction. Charles thanks for being here. Thank you kremlin. I'm excited to be here and let's start with that. Winning the national book award. Your speech was so great. I just loved it because you used seemed genuinely surprised. Don't what was that moment like for you. I was genuinely surprised. I was screaming. As they're reading the citation my family. And i wear all sort of looking at each other and just yelling and we didn't know what to do and my son after while that i think you need to give a speech and so i sort of pulled myself together but i didn't really because then i proceeded to forget to thank my wife my kids and my parents so a half of whom were in the room with me. It was just awful. You know there's a fine tradition. Though i think of of leaving like the most important people out in acceptance speeches hoax out. I don't know. Do you think it would have been different. If it had been in real life. I guess it may must have been nice to even if you forgot to thank them at least have all those people. Those class close family members in the room with you. One of the weird unexpected. I guess benefits of having a virtual ceremony was that we got to hug each other immediately after and then change back into shorts. And why didn't you think you'd win. The chances are pretty good. When they're you know only a certain number of finalists. that's true. I suppose maybe underestimated the chances a little bit but i i don't know it just seems like something that happens to other people. Well it happened to you. I think deservedly. So this is your fourth book affection and they all have really amazing. Titles which i'm gonna read aloud. And then i love you to start. Walk us through them before we talk about this latest novel interior chinatown so the titles are third class superhero. How to live safely in a science fictional universe. And sorry please thank you which is a collection of stories. I mean just those titles thanks. I do enjoy titles. I wish there were a job where you could just title things. Maybe i'm trying to make up that job. I don't know what that would be exactly but yeah it's fun it helps me both. I think sometimes have a handle on what i'm trying to do and also i just imagined when somebody encounters that title. I'm hoping that they get that feeling of. Oh i want to flip to that page and see. What is that you know. It's funny when you say like you wish you could have a job coming up with. Titles i just feel like i have to bring up the fact that writing fiction is not your first job. It's not your only job that you started off as a corporate lawyer. How did you get from that life to this one. Well it took a while. I graduated from law school in two thousand one and as i was supposed to be studying for the bar I found myself in the bookstore instead. Reading george saunders and lorrimore and and people like that and and just kind of diving into the world of i guess contemporary fiction at that time and just getting really excited about it and i think also procrastinating from studying and so then i I started to write these sort of weird. The first thing i wrote was A love story. That is a set of physics problems like that you would find an undergraduate physics textbook Thought i don't know what this is but it's something to do you know on nights and weekends when i'm waiting for waiting for the senior associate to tell me all things did wrong in my merger agreement so severe that it. It'd be it was just this sort of thing. I was doing on the side for many years. And somehow i was creeping towards this. Tv land without even realizing it. Because a few years ago. I i was at work at the time working in house for a tech company as a lawyer and i got a call to come meet for potential spot on the writing staff of this show westworld and i thought well this is. This is not going to happen. And but somehow they hired me so so that was few years ago. And that's what i've been doing since as my day job

Right To Repair

"Hey, everyone. Welcome to the gadget lab I'm lowering good I'm a senior writer at wired and I'm joined remotely by my Co host wired's editor Michael Kouri, Hey Mike. and. We're also joined by wired senior associate editor Julian Takata who's dialing in from new. York Hey Julian. All right. Thanks for joining me today. Today, we're talking about the right to repair. So right to repair something that can be pretty personal to people because a lot of us have stories about trying to get our. Ix or appliances fixed in later in the show, we're going to talk about our own repairability gripes and experiences. But first we're GONNA go to Massachusetts virtually because there's a ballot measure there that could have far reaching consequences. So I'm going to give a quick synopsis of what's going on and then I'll ask Mike and Julian for their takes back in two thousand twelve Massachusetts passed a law that would give car owners and independent repair shops access to mechanical information from your Cards on-board-diagnostics Port, you used to have to go to a dealership for a lot of repairs and now anyone could plug it dangle into the OB, deport and diagnose the problems with your car. Now, this was seen as a big win for the Little Guy Consumers and India repair shops, and it was a landmark law the first of its kind in the United States. But a lot has changed technologically since then cars have basically become computers on wheels. So repair coalitions started pushing a new law that would update the existing law, and now this year that is questioned one on the Massachusetts ballot. It expands the kind of data that consumers and repair shops would have access to to include wireless telematics. So telematics, what is that? We'll telematics. Broadly, it can mean mileage entire pressure and things like that. But it can also encompass a pretty significant amount of data can refer to location speed idling time harsh acceleration or braking. It could mean a lot and as the ballot measures written now it's kind of unclear what it's referring to. So we now have right to repair advocates voting pretty much fever of this update to the law to keep up with the times and make sure that consumers have access to or ownership of the data from their car but opponents to this measure. Particularly, this one group that's got a lot of money from the big automakers is saying. nope. They have a lot of concerns with ballot measure. In this summer they unleashed. We'll just call it a fudd campaign, which we're GONNA talk about. Okay. So I want to get your thoughts and Mike I'm going to go to you first because you're from Massachusetts right. Genetically I'm from Massachusetts yes. I was born in Boston. Okay. So what's your take on this? Well I think it is kind of interesting that. The major opponents here for GM and Toyota, they have been citing safety issues as the reason why third parties should not be able to access the data in their car in in a customer's car so like you took it to an independent repair shop, they wouldn't be able to access this data. You'd have to go to the dealership to access this data. And they're citing these. Weird Safety and security issues like they're saying that this could cause increases in cyber stalking or in cyber attacks like you can. You know roll up next to somebody on the freeway and then turn their car off wirelessly using a hacking method and yes, you can do that but the actual. Chance of that happening is really really slim. Same thing with cyber stalking they say that you know if a third party can wirelessly access your your car's data, bake can find out where you live. They can find out where you work they can see. And they can you know follow you around and follow to your home? Some people have. A code to open the gate to their house or a code open their garage door stored in their cars. They don't have to carry a separate clicker for it and you know the the as the argument goes the hacker able to access that, and then they'd be able to break into your home and. This is why they're telling people not to vote for it and those arguments feel pretty flimsy. Yeah we saw that this summer when ads were released by a group called the Coalition for safe and secure data, and this is a coalition that's funded by automakers that you mentioned and they put out a series of ads. By the way those ads are now listed as private on youtube because they were criticized for the ads that showed a woman being stocked in a garage she approached her car or a man. Wirelessly entering someone's home presumably through the. Garage data. And and this is kind of fun that I was getting out before that these are the concerns that are not technically impossible. But. Many on the repair side of the argument saw these concerns as overblown Mike what's the parallel between what we're seeing with this argument over cars and consumer electronics appliances more broadly. Well, the argument that makes a little bit more sense than the. Cyberattack. Is the same argument that the big tech companies make when they argue against right to repair legislation. They say that we can't let you fix your gadget because you might hurt yourself or you'll make it vulnerable to failure vulnerable to hacks. To. A certain extent that is a little bit true like if you I just want to replace the battery in my iphone well I'll. I'll go to the Internet and I'll buy replacement battery I'll crack open my iphone I'll put the new battery in and then that battery is like some you know weird off brandon explodes and then I have an exploding iphone that's harmful to me it's also bad pr for the company that made the phone same thing with like even something simple like a replacement screen you buy replacement screen maybe that's not an official part in you didn't have it officially installed and it doesn't work exactly right your experiences in that gadget goes down and your customer satisfaction goes down it ends up. Leading to this sort of polluted. market devices, and for replacement parts and companies don't like to see that they like to have control over those things. Also, there is a big business in repairs. So repairing things and doing those repairs yourself, you can charge whatever you want because you're locking everybody else out and it sort of those two things that I think are the the sort of the most interesting parallels with the broader consumer technology industry and the most interesting arguments against rights repair.

Now, with all these new product announcements, how're you doing? You know I'm hanging in there, You know, keeping the fingernails gripped tight to the pen and making videos and writing a bunch of stuff because, yeah, it's been tech announcement after Tech announcement. It's been a little crazy. It has been wild, so let's take it step by step. First of all the Amazon Echo platform. Just when you think you've seen everything they come out with something new, So tell us about the new Great fruit shaped echoes. Yeah, So the were actually going to be hitting the market very soon, But they reshaped all of the echos instead of the familiar shapes you've come to know. Now they're all spheres. So I don't know. I got a SciFi vibe from all but their their spirit. Kal both the full sized Amazon echo the echo dot the echo dot with clock. Spheres of various shapes and sizes, and they're really good looking. I've got to say I mean, you know, having a nice white or charcoal colored sphere on your bookshelf. That's not bad. Yeah, I do. Sort of like the newest medic. And the other cool thing about the new echo is that they're bringing a lot of the higher end Audio stuff like it has adaptive audio for when you're playing music. And some decent specs in terms of music playback, so they're bringing that all into the new Main echo and it's going to cost 100 bucks, which is pretty reasonable, especially if it sounds as good as they're promising. That is awesome. But I think it's fair to say that the biggest thing Amazon announced it's almost mind blowing and that is having a drone. Inside your own house flying around. Tell us about that. Yeah, the ring always home, Karen. It's ridiculous. It's a drone. It flies. It's a security camera that flies Is unbelievable. And so I don't know. It seems cool, but also a little dystopian. So it's enclosed propellers, and it will on ly go on fixed routes that you've programs and When it's not in use. It's going to rest in the base, which is going to cover the camp itself. And it will make a little humming sound as it's flying, so we'll actually be sneaking up on you, which, I guess is reassuring. But it's still completely crazy. A drone security camera, But you know, I gotta give him credit for innovation. It's exciting. Absolutely. I'm wondering about the usefulness of it, though, Or is it just a case? Of Amazon saying, Hey, look what we can do, Honestly, maybe more the latter. So the idea is that you have this one camera that can cover multiple rooms and multiple pads in your home as opposed to meeting Multiple cameras, right. So one drone Cam can lift off and fly through all those rooms to check them on a patrol. And so if it's integrated with your ring alarm security system If something triggers that system, the cancan take off and go check and see what you know Andrew.

And despite the soaring price of lumber, Wichita area builders say that they see no slowdown in activity anytime soon. Steaming back to you. Thanks, Bill. And now let's continue our look at the latest and greatest smart home devices. In our first hour, we examined the brand new products from Amazon. And now Google and Apple, where again audio quality and prices are better than ever. Joining us now, once again is Andrew Gephardt, senior associate editor at scene Yet so Andrew, let's turn the page now to Google because big announcement for Google Is that up to now, The premium sound was only available on the Google home, Max. But now the nest audio, which is a fraction of the cost is said To have absolutely beautiful audio. Tell us about the nest audio. Yeah, it's really cool. They've taken the tack that they used to make the Google whole Max sound great, and they've compacted it down a little bit into the nest audio. It's not a small device, but it's basically a reshaping of the original Google home similar to what the Amazon Echo is doing with its fears, and it sounds good, so we reviewed it, and it really does sound crisp. It makes the vocals really pop. On lower volumes. It can be just a little bit quiet, which is surprising, but it's still pops, especially at high volume, good audio and really neat, sound quality wrapped up in this pretty affordable package. It's only 100 bucks. And that's even less expensive than the original Google home was when it came out four years ago. Yeah, That was 130. Of course. You know if you wanted that recently, you could almost certainly fine deals. But, yeah, that was originally 130 bucks. So everybody's trying to get the price down of these smart speakers, which makes a lot of sex. The $100 nest audio lines up perfectly with the new Amazon echo, which is also going to be 100 bucks. The idea is to make it affordable and make this tech as accessible as possible effect. That's wonderful. Speaking of Google, let's spend a minute on the nest WiFi system. Which could help a lot of people because we're staying at home so much these days. And if you don't know, a mesh WiFi system allows you to get the same signal strength you would get if you were right next to your router. Anywhere in your house. Can you tell us about that? Yeah, Think of it like a net of signal being cast throughout your place. So you set up sort of your main point that plugs into your modem, and then you take these additional y five points and you set them throughout your house. So mesh is especially good if you have a large place. And a big basement and your WiFi has trouble reaching those corners. That's awesome. And this is sort of unusual because we've talked now for a few minutes about The latest tech and we haven't even mentioned Apple. Yet. As far a smart home tech goes What's happening with Apple? Just a couple of days ago, Apple had their event and they debuted the home pod. Minnie, I was mentioning how smart speakers are getting cheaper and more accessible Apples even jumping in on the game. Now they're coming out with the home, Padmini and its spherical, So I guess spheres are also the wave of the smart computer. It's going to be 100 bucks, so it's going to match the Amazon echo. It's going to match the new nest audio and it looks like they're Lacking in quite a bit of sound quality. It seems like a promising device. And it's neat that even Apple is trying to get in on this smart home Smart speaker game with affordably priced smart speakers and the home pod may well, Andrew. It's always great talking to you and let me be among the first to say Happy holidays 2020. Well, happy holidays and thank you for having me on you are so welcome. Andrew Gephardt, senior associate editor at seen it on what's brand new in Smart Home Tech. Coming up on.

And we're also joined by wired senior associate editor. Julian Chicago to who has like seventeen different phones on him right now. Hey Julie in below my desk has like six phones on right now so. So today we are talking about yet another apple event this week apple announced a new iphone twelve, actually four of them and a tiny smart speaker, and these are the first iphones with five G. which matters doesn't matter doesn't matter yet. We're GONNA talk about five G. later on in the show what you need to know about it the challenges and rolling it out across the US and whether you'll even be able to connect to five G. With the new IPHONE are calling. We'll night is going to join us later on for that but first, let's talk about the phones themselves. Jillian. Phone has championed edges. Let's get that out of the way. That's probably the most important thing here, right? Okay. But obviously, there's more than that what stood out to you most about the new iphones twelve as someone who takes a lot of photos and tests the cameras on phones a lot. A. Lot of their camera upgrades. We're the most exciting thing for me and and I really like how a lot of those camera upgrades are kind of for the most part. All across the entire lineup from the 699 iphone twelve mini, you're getting the same main camera that they improve the aperture on as the iphone twelve pro. But for the most part that iphone twelve pro, you get these new features like pro raw, which gives you the ability to edit. Raw photos and also get the benefits of apples, computational photography, and that is just someone something that's really exciting for someone who takes a lot of raw photos with my camera just gives you more granular control over photo editing and also the other thing is they're bringing night mode to every single lens that's on this phone. So finally, you can take a Selfie, at night and not have to worry about it being too terrible, looking or grainy. So overall I think the entire suite of camera features on the entire range is pretty exciting and pretty dramatically better than what you had last year on the iphone eleven. And tell us about some of the video improvements to yes. For the improvements, they added the ability to shoot HDR with Dolby Vision, which is you know apparently the only phone that can do this and basically lets you get this program cinematic looking effector or look. You could say with all of your videos at ten bits of it's like super high quality. It just looks really good. With the option to edit the colors and have really good cinematic looking video as well with the iphone twelve pro you there have this improved stabilization system that moves the sensor itself. So basically, in fact, you're getting something that feels and looks much more high quality than ever before, and again, this is somewhere where apple leads compared to every other phone manufacturer except maybe Samsung is pretty close. No one else does the ability to shoot video quality this well, and it's just every year. It just seems to be getting further and further away from other companies even like you. Google. Pixel phones that take really great photos Mike what did you make the event? You know my favorite thing that I saw this week was the mini, the small phone small phones in general are exciting to me. Our colleague Brian Barrett wrote this week that the arrival of the iphone twelve mini is a harbinger of good for the small phone community I think you know fabulous when they came out what was it like eight years ago or so we started seeing these gigantic phones and then. People really liked them and they started them in huge numbers. So phones just kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger. We've all been waiting for phones to get small again, phones have gotten smaller, but they haven't really gotten small enough, and now this year I think phones are starting to get just about small enough to satisfy the people who are looking for small phone I was out last week two weeks ago at A. Socially distanced event and I saw a guy with a Sony experience x to compact, which is like a really tiny. It's even smaller than the iphone mini android phone and I asked him about it. I went over to him six feet away and I said, Hey, what is that and he started going on and on about it and the way that he was talking about it was so passionate and I realize that. Like okay. You know what? There is a huge market. People are really really passionate about smartphones and people are GonNa flip when they see the mini I think coming until November So I, think for people who really want it. They're going to have to resist clicking that buy button for a couple of weeks

"So those of you that listen to the afternoon program you need stay tuned anyway, because I'm a I'm a Who knows I might contradict myself in then you can send me a master Graham and I can you know we can. You can make fun of me. But we're going to constitutional law class tonight, and I want to do this because on both sides of the aisle, Democrats and Republicans alike everybody is going just Nuts and they're going nuts because nobody's really paying close attention to what the Constitution says. So let's separate. We're gonna approach the whole issue. You can't You don't know what I'm talking about. And if you know what I'm talking about, Well, then, clearly you've been living under a rock since Friday night. Funny night at dinner. My phone starts blowing up because the notorious RBG has passed away. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the senior associate on the You Know, I just ate Supreme Court. Senior Sofia justice. What we're going to do this evening is we're going to divide this story into two parts. The constitutional part which everybody is ignoring. Well, I shouldn't say everybody, but everybody has their hair on fire is ignoring the constitutional part and then we're going to talk about the political part. I'm gonna get the political part. I just want to explain. From Both the Republican Point of view in the Democrat Point of view why people are screaming everything that they're screaming because I know I just know because I've had too many friends and family who have who have Texted, emailed or cold or said to me Hey, Republicans being hypocritical. Can the president really do this? Hey, this is unconstitutional. Let's let's just let's walk through all of it. So let's go to the beginning. In the beginning, Michael said No in the beginning. Just pretty easy. In fact, it's probably one of the most simple things that that you'll hear. All evening. The United States Constitution. Article two Section two The second paragraph, if you want, if you really want to look it up. Article two, Section two Paragraph two. Says the following he now he refers to the president because Article two is that portion of the Constitution, which deals with the presidency, he meaning the president and I just want to read the entire paragraph. Then we'll go back. We'll and we'll dissect it a little bit. He shall have power by and with advice and consent of the Senate to make treaties provided the two thirds of the senators present concur and he shall nominate and buy and with the advice and consent of the Senate. Shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls judges of the Supreme Court and all other officers of the United States whose appointments are not here in otherwise provided for in which shall be established by law. But the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior officers. As they think proper in the president alone in the courts of law or in the heads of departments. What's the pertinent language? The president. Shall have the power. And he shall Not maybe Not, you know if it's within 45 days, or if it's more than 45 days, he shall nominate Judges of the Supreme Court. Bye and with the advice of the consonant Consent of the Senate. So it's it's not even that the Constitution says. As for example, with all due respect, Justice Ginsburg it is her wish it is her dying wish that the next president Appoint a replacement. One look. Be brutally honest. We're not replacing Justice Ginsburg. There is a vacancy on the court as a result of her death. That vacancy shall be filled by the president. With the advice and consent of the Senate. There is not There is not a Ginsburg seat. There is not other than the chief justice and even that That's the chief justice. It is not a justice Roberts seat. There is a Chief justice and eight associate justices and the Constitution plainly says. The president shall nominate with the advice and consent of the Senate judges of the Supreme Court. Here's what it doesn't say. It doesn't say unless there's an election going or less is a tropical store or in Lister's covert 19, or unless there's this or that Donald Trump. Whether you like it or not, Quite frankly, I just don't give a rat's ass but whether you like it or not, Donald Trump is going to be president until noon on January 21. I mean for us until noon on January 20th 2021. And he may still be president at noon when he gets re inaugurated if he gets reelected. Donald Trump right now is the president of the Constitution says that the president shall nominate with the advice and consent of the Senate. Justices of the Supreme Court. There. There are no qualifiers whatsoever. So that's the baseline which we start. And I know a lot of lot of people don't like to think that in fact, you'll hear from some. You'll hear from some Republicans elect Susan Collins or Lisa Murkowski that will leave. We think we really ought to wait until the election. That's not what the Constitution says sisters. It is not what it says. Or you have Democrats. Well, this is unfair. We should let the people vote. People can vote for the president. And then the president to nominate somebody. Guess what you does. We did that. We did that. In November of 2016. And now Donald Trump is the president. There's a vacancy. And he shall nominate So it's a pretty It's a Pretty straightforward. But now it's gotten messed up into all of this stuff that the mainstream media that news organizations that talking heads everybody else they're they're trying to win your hearts and minds. By pleading to fairness pleading to well, the election is going to be here pretty soon and there and one part one side or the other is so confident that we're going to win that. Well, we should wait or we don't need away because we're going to win anyway. None of that makes any difference. From a purely constitutional point of view. So that's the beginning. What I want to do next is I want to go. I want to fast forward. I want to fast forward to sometime just before Thanksgiving 2013. In 2013 Harry Reid, senator from Nevada. Was the Senate majority leader. Democrats controlled the United States Senate in 2013 Barack Obama was in his second term. It was a Democrat president. Democrats controlled the Senate Democrats could have confirmed Tammy. Any nominee they wanted to from Barack Obama because they have the votes to do it. Unless it was just some dumb school like me. Harry Reid had a different idea. Harry Reid wanted to do something else. Well, those chickens have come home to roost. I'll explain that right after Darren explains the traffic.

Anti-Kremlin protests continue in Russia's far eastern city of Khabarovsk

Anti-Kremlin protests continue in Russia's far eastern city of Khabarovsk

"Thousands of people took to the streets again in Russia's. Russia's far, east and city of Khobar of yesterday protests against Moscow, and the Kremlin have now been going on for over three weeks. Joining me for more to mark. Gherman Russia analyst stunt senior associate fellow at the Royal United Services Institute Good Morning and welcome to the program Mark. Could we first recap what exactly has happened so far? The first protests were sparked by the arrest off a local politician weren't they? They were the local governor elected local governor Sergei for Guile, and this was on fifteen year old charges of involvement with some contract killing, which may or may not be true. He was set me involved in some questionable business. But the widespread assumption amongst the locals was that it was simply because the Kremlin was was peeved at him at the fact that he had stood against their candidate and then just simply rummaged around looking for suitable charges, and since then these protests have continued for, as you said, now, almost a month and it's really. So transmogrify from being about four, how to actually being about Moscow. About Putin and about the sense that in a way, the government in Moscow cares about the rest of Russia outside. It's ring road when it comes to taxing them rather than looking after them. Have those protests course most grow by surprise? Absolutely, an indeed one of the interesting signs of that is precisely that there has been such a clampdown on any references to the protests. In the official TV media, we've seen accounts in the newspapers and online sites, but very much from the televisions point of view, it's nothing and that's a classic sign off what what Moscow does when it doesn't know what to do. It basically tries to by itself, some breathing space, but the trouble is cost nowadays. Russians. Are Very Internet savvy and. And the news has gone out anyway, and at the moment I, think the Russians Russian government is essentially playing a waiting game. They don't really want to try and take on these thousand strong protests especially because the local law enforcement and security agencies frankly don't particularly infused to do so and therefore ain't now waiting hoping that it'll die down to the point when they can actually begin to crack down. Do you think that's going to to the protests? We'll just eventually die down. Well I think the honest answer is, yes. We saw the most recent protests are actually smaller than in previous ones and impact that was because it was rainy rainy day in such like. But because it's not as though, these can can go anywhere what the what, what are the real significance not that somehow this protest will, it will explode and expand. It's precisely what it shows about incipient protests potential within Russia because there's nothing particularly special about kebabs. He's not like he was unusually poor or badly hit by corona virus or whatever, and I think. Right. This is so worrying for the Kremlin, is that sense of fine we can ride out this one protest in this one city. But what does it say about the potential for more protests all across the country exactly disease dimension that. Putin rather strong grip on power buddies this. Really, the case everywhere in Russia also in more distant places such as city in the Far East? Well. This is interesting thing. It's that you might have protests the loyalty to the center. Until. Push comes to shove. We've seen as particularly in Russia east of the Urals for which there is classic. Russian proverb God is in Heaven Bizarre is far away where absolutely Moscow is a very distant force and we've seen it in the past where actually local authorities. Are often in cahoots with local security operators in their own corrupt deals and so forth. But also they feel the same kind of pressures and resentment as ordinary Russians. So I think one of the strengths of Putin's regime has always been that he's understood when not to push when to make concessions. But at the moment in a corona virus has eroded his personal support, the money is tight it's that much harder to make the kind of. Deals Shantou involve splashing the money around that. He has in the past. So it's an interesting question. I mean, yes, he's not gonNA be swept away by this. He's not disappear anytime soon, but the slow corrosion, the legitimacy of his regime is becoming all the more visible exactly, and let's remember this beauty can did now stay in power until two thousand and thirty six thanks to changes to Russia's constitution. Do you think he actually has to address this issue of erosion and do you think people are going to appreciate him for years to come? Well I mean who knows quite how history is going to take him. Frankly, I think probably quite harshly. He will have to address the question of legitimacy, but again I think the thing is that. Putting has been around longtime. He's been power twenty, two years I. Think if trump has exhausted his capacities to reinvent himself he's got these grand national projects that you meant to be about totally reconfiguring national interest structure and health and such like, and it's really quite telling that he's recently pushed back the timeframe for their accomplishment. He clearly has a very ambitious agenda. Agenda, but he doesn't seem to know either how to really accomplish it, and secondly how to afford it. So I think he's he's hoping at the moment that things just get better that do course the virus abates. The economy stabilizes and things will work out not sure how far holding your fingers. A crossing your fingers is really going to be a proper answer. The most go the Kremlin on Moscow seemed to be waiting that these protests were seeing in Cabbarov Squirrel, just gradually die away. But what if they doesn't what kind of a warning example this? Of Four four Moscow and UNFOR, Vladimir? Putin. We we have reached elections coming up rather soon. How can make sure that something like that doesn't happen in those cities in those regions as well? Well, here's the problem he can't because it's really about is going to catch nation of random factory in football was not particularly personally popular. It was more the just his arrest, which under other circumstances might well have. Have passed pretty much unnoticed. Just somehow catalyzed. They just general sense of being fed up. There was a coastal city. Now. Elsewhere, we have certain places I. Mean, for example, in in Novosibirsk in Siberia, there's sort of contested elections coming up where we actually have real opposition politics emerging. The government is going to hope that it considered squelch Shalit's, but didn't that it has to have these parliamentary elections however. Much the parliament itself is just a rubber stamp. Nonetheless, it has to have these elections and elections. Inevitably case it paces when situations are that, there will be discussions disagreements, it will generate or kind of precious. Again, what we're seeing something that means it's highly difficult to predict. That's irritating for an analyst like myself. You difficult to predict exactly what and where it's going to happen, but there is a prevailing sense in Moscow that. The country is entering some bumpy. Times? Would it be easier for peace in to lead his country. If it was simply smaller, it is understandable that Russians thousands of miles away from Moscow? Mayfield. They don't wants to be controlled by the capital, isn't it? Exactly. Eleven time zones away or whatever I mean the actually that sense that Moscow doesn't really care is really quite pervasive, but to be perfectly honest look I've traveled outside Moscow itself. Even within the Moscow region, you find these pockets of ticky rural poverty, where actually all the shiny new infrastructure, the bright lights, the hipster bars and things of Moscow seem alone wrong where way. So size does matter, but I think it's really not the key issue. It's about the extent to which this is a regime which is focused on Moscow and Petersburg, a handful of other major cities and really has developed them at the expense of the rest of the country. And just finally, Mark Looking at these protests and fierce Moscow and beauty may have. How can President Putin bring the nation together? Again is widely assumed that looking for enemies from the West has been one way for into boost his own popularity domestically. Do you expect that we may see some kind of new maneuvers from the president in the future if things get worse domestically. Well, there's this overwhelming assumption in the West that, yes, that he tries to distract attention this way we have to realize that with the exception of the two, thousand, fourteen annexation of Crimea. which was very, very unusual case. None of the various overseas adventures that Putin has engaged in Syria and so forth have been either driven by domestic considerations or frankly popular i. mean half the time. Actually the Russian regime lies to its own people to claim that it's at interventions abroad are much less than they really are. So I think what we're going to say is not some kind of adventure abroad, but we will. Will see a rising tone to this propaganda about the world is a hostile place and the Russia is beleaguered fortress. He doesn't make Putin popula. What it does do is it legitimises his Moose clamped down on the opposition because he can say, this is not a time to be divided because Russia's very future is at threat

He holds a degree in biochemistry and public health from UC Berkeley and works out of Los Angeles.

Assault excited to be here. Yeah, for sure so before we dive into Desi Bio. What you guys are doing there and and your experiences in in healthcare that me a little bit about what inspires your work in healthcare. Yeah, my work in healthcare is really inspired by a number of people that continue to show me the importance of advancing technologies that that not only improve outcomes provide more equitable access to care and I grew up with immigrant grandparents who distrusted Western medicine, and and didn't really have the means or privilege of accessing care in the way that I do now all. All four of them with chronic diseases that back then I considered to be a normal part of life, and my grandma in particular was one of my biggest inspirations, and although she was uneducated, she was by far one of the brightest people I've known. She was incredibly stubborn. The living for years with diabetes and chronic kidney disease when she was diagnosed with cancer, and she said she loved life, so we respected her wishes to stay close to home and received minimal treatment I stopped pushing for genomic profiling and immunotherapy, and and let her go peacefully, but it's really always stuck with me. Me As a reminder that even the best technologies don't change outcomes when barriers to access stand in the way, and those can be a number of things besides pure financial means and I think any discussion about proving outcomes and overall quality of care really needs to be framed in the context of access so coup benefits from a technology. How can technology become more approachable intangible for patients that are on the fringes of the.

Coronavirus crisis tests Putin's grip on power in Russia

"Sad global race to the bottom China is coming second only the. Us has a higher daily Corona virus infection rate. This is having a negative effect on Vladimir Putin's approval rating well joining me is Mark Galliotti Russia analyst and senior associate fellow at the Royal United Services Institute mark. Thanks for coming on. The show has Putin handled this badly. Is it his fault? Well it's hard to say that his fault but he certainly isn't handling it well from the first he. In fact light trump has been something of naysayer saying it wasn't going to be a problem and now he essentially has abdicated responsibility dumping it on local governors and so forth and this looks frankly like application more than anything else he's appearing. It would seem only on video link. We haven't seen him in person. How's he coming across on the screen? Well it's fascinating I mean. Let's be honest. We all get very tired of Azoun conversations and suchlike but he has been been seen Serena playing with his pencil while he's getting reports and so forth. I'm pushing. It was has a bit of a problem in terms of projecting charisma and I think actually this particular situation in which the medium as well as the message. Don't really work for him. This is not his kind of crisis. I mean on the global stage Russia's infection rates look terrible but the actual numbers of deaths from covert nineteen that are being reported relatively low. Why why is this still reasons? One of them is just probably under reporting. Not because of some Grand Kremlin conspiracy but because anyway there is a a habit within the system from the bottom that you don't report bad news up the chain of command and there's a suggestion that in fact the current death-ray could will be a significant understatement. In Fatty should be seventy percent higher. But even so I mean that just puts it about three thousand deaths and impart the reason for that is firstly that it still hasn't spread as widely. They're they're much an earlier stage of the curve and secondly because in its own rough and ready way the Russian health system. It's not well geared for a lot of things but actually it can deal with an epidemic like this a bit better than shiny modern systems such as we have A. Why is that though simply? Because the Russian system hasn't moved into kind of accumulating it's medical facilities into relative handful of exceedingly shiny. Exceedingly HIGH TECH HUBS. The way we basically having the West instead. You got a lot of often quite shabby but little hospitals in little towns so people are actually much closer to medical facilities. That can deal with this one so it would appear that. It hasn't yet peaked in the country but Putin's announcing measures to ease the look down. I mean with these polling figures. This would seem like a very odd time. So why do it now? Essentially this is political sleight of hand. Because the one hand he's saying the federally mandated lockdown is now over but he's saying individual governors have the power to maintain them in their own regions. And of course no one is insane enough to think that Russia does not need to have some kind of lockdown. So what having is? It's the governors who are now basically saying no we keep me having Moscow for example lockdown. Continue very stringent lockdown continues. Until the end of this month this is essentially his way of saying to the Russian people you know. Are you miserable in lockdown? Are you losing money? Are you out to work will? Don't blame me blame. Your local governor is really about putting the blame on them. Yeah now this pandemic needs that the vote on constitutional reform which would have ushered in measures meaning that Putin could stay in power until twenty. Thirty six has had to be postponed. Who Do you think it will go ahead at all? They desperate for it to go ahead. Always Putin is I mean. There's even know sort of talk that they're going to try and schedule it. For the middle of July in the sense that Ping that will be sort of allow period between the first and second peaks. Of course it would be disastrous to actually have a physical vote at that time. But it's a measure of just how concerned one of the reasons why Putin was so slow to announce lock down in the first place because he was hoping he just get his vote over the line. He will get vote eventually. We'll have to save in July. Do you think that Putin could be killed off? If not physically by the virus and politically by the fallout from it. I mean could this actually dismantled two decades of political architecture? I think it's unlikely. Because although there are a few grumbles within the ranks essentially putting still has the security apparatus onside and there isn't really any one at the moment to replace him however this absolutely is eating away at his legitimacy as it is not his kind of crisis he didn't get a chance to sort of be the the match commander in chief. He's not responded to it. Well people immortal grumbling. They're saying first of all that way. The Putin we've gotten now is not the Putin we had twenty years ago but also that Putin perhaps is no longer the man for these times so we a slow erosion of legitimacy robin anything is likely to lead to some cataclysmic

He joins us on the line now from Prague, Mark. How genuine is this event? Are they real questions with unrehearsed onces Ono? This is a monstrously stage-managed prevention is, how Putin manages to always appear -absolutely on top of all the latest facts and figures. So it stage-manage but on the other hand, they know they have to keep it honest if. If they're going to keep their in psalm side. So what sort of questions is he asked? Well, it varies some ways, it's actually quite useful moment of national therapy, because it does give a sense of what the country's talking about this time. It's interesting because time and time, again, people came back to one central theme, which is essentially why our lives quite miserable. Winter things gonna get better this, no way that Putin could escape having to respond to that, question what he did assure Russians there that the economy's improving. Is it? Well, not really. I mean, this is interesting thing if you look at the actual quality of life on the ground think things have at best stagnated, and the problem is time and time, again, he was having to go back to the nineteen nineties, trying to say, oh, but things are so much better than the nineteen ninety s now this thing well in the north, but increasing nowadays, he's talking to people whom this is actually agent history. So he didn't have a good answer. Just trying to tell people no. Actually, you may think you'll. Life is not any better. But it is really doesn't work now. Just the day before Russia was accused.

The game is really determined the outcome is really determined earlier. It's all about who. In my opinion is standing at the door when the door opens magin this. You're a spirit of five person venture firm, which is probably a medium sized firm. It's not huge. It's not a lot of people. You don't have a lot of resources. Suddenly you wanna bring on associated or senior associate and you have five people in. Everyone's busy deal, sir meeting with LP's writing memos, whatever they're doing and they're busy during their day. And they're going to never have. But sitting on panels the whole gamut. Right. So when we would use our at one of those firms, and you suddenly want to hire somebody. You don't always run this massive process where you get thousands of resumes. Are thrown you interviewed fifty people. That's how tremendous time suck. If you have a back office staff who does recruiting right, but most firms don't so what they do is built relationships with folks over time and very often those people in terming another venture firms of their venture firm. It's people who have been entrepreneurs or working in the portfolio are people just made the effort to reach out and be helpful. You know, maybe they've sent the BBC some deals and just being useful in a good resource. And we're friendly made some good introductions. And so I like to think of it this way, these are just going to walk to the door and open the door, and they may not announce you know, that they're looking for someone in seven everyone may not know the lineup at the right time. Whoever standing there actively waiting is gonna be in consideration both most of these roles. So if you're interested in. Venture the game doesn't start when a job. Posting goes up any of these jobs will post the game is about getting coffee networking building relationships, adding value to the firms along long way and becoming friendly with people. And so that means in the deals go out of your way to when you go to networking events. And you're looking for your own jobs. Find interesting companies float them over to the venture venture firm. Help them out the useful be friendly. And then when they opened the door you'll be on your your good odds, you'll be on the shortlist of opportunities that you should tell them. Hey, I love the considered for a role if you guys ever higher, but beyond that it's just about trying to stand in front of a little way. That's not annoying. You're not wanna be they're asking for the role. You wanna be there, adding value, right? Make intros bushy companies. I really liked the idea of you don't have to have the job to provide value to the people at the job. You can just like you're saying you can send them deals. You can show them. Interesting companies you can. Send them an article or something. I mean, you can ping them in and provide value without having a job or getting paid by them. That's perfectly normal with that. You said it's five hundred thousand people applied for that job. So differentiating yourself is providing value. Absolutely. I come here. Yes. Come when you get to come bearing gifts..

"I and that is the last anyone has heard of him. This is somebody who is. Described as a cybersecurity expert. Also a senior associate of WikiLeaks, and the story is getting quite a lot of attention for that along which I guess is a good thing. But unfortunately, whenever there's a Wiki leaks story, it just turns into just about Julian Assange. In fact, if you see stories about this guy being missing, you see Julian's picture and not his which makes no sense whatsoever. We need to focus on this guy and make sure that he has found that he is safe and nothing. Nothing bad has happened to him all kinds of suspicions because, well, this is the kind of thing we're talking about. People who know how things work. People who reveal information, people who know how to do that, securely they can be threatened. They can be people who are of great interest to others anyway, the. Basically all over the the internet, but I'll spell his name case. People prefer to look it up themselves. Arjun a r. j. e. n. and his last name campus k. m. p. h. u. IS. And he wrote a book called information security for journalists, which offers advice on investigative reporters, working on national security and intelligence matters. See this all ties together in a really. Really interesting, but also scary way sometimes now he has Dutch citizenship and he likes to travel, but the fact that he's disappeared and has not made any of his appointments in the last week or two is very, very disturbing. So we are keeping a close eye on that particular story as well. And again, front of with three, four, seven, three, five, zero, eight one, and we had a couple of calls come in. They timed out. So if you got time out on, please call that we have a couple of minutes left. I hadn't realized that he wrote that compendium information security for journalists..
