"I watched him. Al Michaels, they had the thing on ABC and they kept showing the Lucas bunch with a 9 columns of the Brady bunch on the what's recall. I went back and watched that on YouTube. He won that Derby. I thought it was the, I don't think it was thunder golf. I could be right. I don't want to say anything. I don't know what Serbia was. But I saw that and I remember they used that thing up when he had the 5. So yes, these guys ran a bunch of horses. Which next question and then I'll get to my Preakness. I saw the good skate sir Barton was entered without a rider. I didn't think on a Triple Crown card you could do that. Any, I mean, I saw that on Brisbane, there was no rider mentioned when the past performances came out. I didn't think you could do that. I read a condition book of freeness and yes father I'd send. I'm a sick person that I reconditioned books all the time while my girlfriend reads Harlow and trashy novels, but long story short, I didn't know you could do that. Any idea who's going to ride that horse or why that was? I know that's the second Rudy Rodriguez force. So I don't know. But I'll give you my thoughts on the race since you asked, Bobby. I'm going to say this. I give her all the media guys talk about the neighborhood heard mention of it. All I hear about thoroughly voting early voting early voting on the front. Guys, I don't see it that way. Send which is going to go in this race, and I think they're going to write fenwick out of the gate like the jockey road Serengeti emperors in the oaks. When she won right in the right in the rains right from the word go and help me on the pronunciation guys are homogeneous. I think it's armagnac. Armagnac, God. That's why you guys are what you are and I'm just a calling guy. Armagnac, he's got to have the lead and the only two races he's done wells when he's at glazing. So I really don't think early voting is going to burn this horse out or are we voting is going to have to stand back and take off the pace. You know, my other story of the race is look at the Yakuza failures. And I don't necessarily mean the two horses in the Derby. But I put doppelganger on the ticket with Jack Christopher in that race. And I don't think that horse ran a yard. Just, you know, and I thought that horse going in the Arkansas Derby was a real good horse. And that horse did that. But I think what's going to happen is I think you're going to have a breakneck pace because I think Johnny V is going to have to go from the one hole and at least do something, but I think fenwick and armagnac, I'm giving my best shot, Bobby. And early voting, I think they're all going to go run themselves. I think at the center is going to try and race. But Kai, I just see him swinging out of the turn and it's either the $150,000 baby who's got to run second food account Jack mount and you just to break even for the weekend and that's more in that horse has ever made. And then I think the Phillies going to run out in the right out in the middle of the racetrack. And I think he's going to put that horse in here. And I'm telling you what, she's got to gear the deep. And I've not been kind of down on the three year old boy all year. That if she runs away like she did in the oaks and I think there's no way she's not going to get the extra 16th of a mile. I really think she's going to get to the front end and I'm going to call it here first. I'm going to go to the wing Lucas like the old days. I'm going to go the wing Lucas pick three. I'm going to single. I'm going to.

"Over other settings. Another related aspect was that in tracing these dynamics, we could also trace what we think of as introductions to the district. So an introduction just means a dog might be wandering over from one village into the next across an invisible village boundary. But those introductions we were able to quantify them. And if we were able to take out those introductions, which of course we can do in a modeling world, then the dog vaccination really rapidly had the desired impacts and would eliminate infection. But once you've got the introductions going on continuously, it means that as you vaccinate, you do suppress infection, but it keeps coming back in from outside. So we actually have to really think about coordinating dog vaccination and delivering dog vaccination over connected populations. Our findings suggested that if you do that coordination, you would have much stronger impact. But if you just do a small vaccination in a town or a district, but don't have any coordinated efforts outside, then you'll have impacts, but they'll be quite short lived very interesting. Can we take a little side trip here into the role of dogs in this? Yes, sure. Our dogs stop primary host for rabies or are they where rabies is most successful or is it the one that we people care about? So in this part of East Africa, it really does seem as if domestic dogs are the key population. So if you're able to vaccinate dogs and basically take them out of the equation, your solve the problem in people getting exposed and wildlife getting exposed and cattle dying of rabies. So you'll kind of solve multiple problems all in one go. It was initially a bit of a surprise because Serengeti district borders Serengeti national park where there's lots of very good wildlife hosts like jackals and hyenas and mongoose sun lions and so on. Getting back to the results, this new understanding of patterns of rabies transmission. What are their diseases might deserve a second look using this scale thinking about it in a different scale to try to better understand its transmission dynamics. The most obvious one to me and the one that I think reminds me quite a lot of rabies is Ebola. There is also close contact transmission and there is potentially some immunity involved, but again, I think whilst the epidemic in West Africa was absolutely horrific. It didn't get as bad as people thought. My suspicion is there was depletion going on at quite a smaller scale in a similar way to rabies and it was something to do with the spatial dynamics that I think played a role and that we haven't fully understood. But to be honest, any infection that is circulating in a spatially structured population, so typically more in wild and domestic animal populations where there isn't quite so much mixing as human populations. I think these processes are likely to be operating..

"And one of the keys to the success of our work and being able to do contact tracing effectively was basically a key member of the team. He was a gentleman who was a livestock field officer for the Serengeti district livestock office when I started my PhD with him. He'd already been local to the district of the region living there since he was a child. So he had 30 plus years of experience in this community and it meant that basically everywhere we went to trace rabies, people knew him. He knew all the local dialects. He knew what problems they had with their cows, for example. So it just was a real incredible entry point into the community and this map across the district, which meant we could trace what rabid dogs did and also community members who were really open and appreciated these visits. That's great. Now, this study was collecting data over a long period of time. 2002 to 2000 16, you're tracking dogs, your contact tracing, what other kinds of data did you collect over that long period of time? Yeah, it was pretty epic. I admit to that. So we realized from the contact tracing that we could get this incredible data on which dogs were infecting, which other dogs and how they were moving across the landscape. But a crucial part of disease transmission is knowing the susceptibility of the landscape. How many other individuals are there around to infect? To kind of get at that denominator of the population and we did this census where we basically visited every single household in the district. And found out how many people and how many dogs lived in those households and how many of those dogs were vaccinated. So it's meant to be kind of a snapshot that could give us a complete representation of the population at risk across this district, which has got about probably closer to 300,000 people living in it now. So it was quite an undertaking. That's a lot of people. And a lot of dogs then, right? 300,000 people how many dogs? Yeah, it's about 50,000 dogs. Yeah, when we started the dog population was closer to 40,000 dogs, and now it's closer to 80,000 dogs. Wow. Because the population has just really been growing a lot in this particular district in this part of Tanzania and people keep keeping dogs so the population has grown to. I think we should be clear that there are not wild packs of roving feral dogs here. This is people's dogs. They could be vaccinated..

"Back home to save myself chewing time I'm turning raw courgettes into spaghetti although my daughter Elsa didn't like the look of them But here's the important point Richard thinks fire gave us food security Last time chewing meant more time to hunt and forage and as we grew confident that we could always find something to cook and safely eat we took the risk of going out on longer expeditions into the savanna to hunt for even bigger game Until we have homo erectus our ancestors had big brawny arms and shoulders that enabled them to climb well and they would certainly have slept in trees But once you get to homo erectus they slept on the ground And I think that they had some alternative system of being safe on the ground at night And that surely must have been the use of fire In nowadays you'd be crazy to go off to somewhere like the Serengeti and just curl up and lie down on the ground and hope you'd be okay You would definitely have to have a fire Do you think fire had a role to play in the loss of body hair in humans Yeah my feeling about this is that if you can keep warm at night you don't need hair as an insulating lair And this is very significant because humans are relatively active species We have an anatomy that is adapted to running from about 2 million years onwards but they would not have been regular long distance runners if they had had hair When the active during the day the problem tends to be how can you lose heat rather than how can you retain it And we are still running on that for a job right now In fact by pedal running it's such an energy efficient way to get around It's thought humans simply pursued their less efficient quadruped prey Until it collapsed from exhaustion This pursuit eventually led over a rectus out of Africa and into the much colder darker northern latitudes of Eurasia during.

"The reality of the extensive extension. Is still to be determined in whatever or maybe never in human time scales. What do you do? So such a herring after the Serengeti areas were cities are encroaching and important landscapes. The Amazon No. We've already just foiled our North American. Region so fantastically and so it's hard for us to cite. You should do this, but You got. Let's talk about the Amazon. You get had some time on the ground in Brazil. We do have both an arrow to power down, which is changed. Some dynamics is just sort of like saying The Amazons. Not Bernie. As much as it did in 1990 days is not the end point. So what do we do now? What's the role of Trade policy. What's the role of remote sensing? What's the role of empowering the indigenous communities? Right? Yeah, well, I mean, I think the first thing I'm trying to do in both the Amazon and then, of course, the other place That's not a lot of time is the Albertine rift, which is where the mountain gorillas ours. Freebie Homo SAPIENs of evolves both a very special places in the book, and they run through the book. The first thing I'm just trying to do is to show that the degradation, the degradation of natural environments and the killing of species and the rest of extinction are not being carried out by evil people who hate nature. It's often being carried out by people that are desperately poor poor in ways that The young people who are alarmed by polar bears and plastic straws have no understanding of and you I know, understand it cause you go to those places, So the first thing I wanted to apply, this number is to bring My kids and kids. My daughter's age. 14 15 16 wonder, writing really simple stories, characters and show what their struggles are. And so you see in the Amazon chapter. I just object to this kind of elitist, literally looking down, flying over the Amazon condemning the people on the ground. What they're doing these air desperately poor people. I lived in communities of former slaves or I'm sorry. The Children of former slaves the grant of the descendants of former slaves in Brazil. Point out that, Yeah, I mean, there's there's certainly we would all like this all else being equal. We would like the Amazon forest to be intact. You know all those speed equal. I don't want any temperature change on Earth. We've adapted to this temperature but also is not equal. You know, there's still two billion really poor people. So that's the first thing the second thing I think it's so important. Had my my main character on the Amazon who now regrets having spoken to me because he spoke so freely, and I know you know him very well too. Damn, That's sad. He spoke so freely with me because he was upset as I was by the media coverage, saying it's the ones of the world He revealed. This important thing, which is that in demanding small is beautiful conservation measures. Greenpeace forced the fragmentation of parts of the Amazon forest that should never have occurred. So what we know is that if you want if you want to produce more food on less land, you need to concentrate agricultural production. You need to intensify it. Well, that should happen in the Savannah region, which is none of this had had, which is in this southern south of the Amazon forest. It's actually much more productive for agriculture. It's less file diverse, fewer college. Just think that it's the same as the Amazon for us that would then allow you to protect more of the Amazon. But Greenpeace insisted The farmers maintain half of their land in forest isn't creating these forest islands that make it more difficult for apex predators like the cats to move between them. I think that was a very, very important finding. Now, if I could skip if I go over to the Albertine rift in Africa might be some of the heroes of that chapter. We're also conservation scientists who have been working with oil companies. To develop oil safely in national parks, so that could be used as a substitute for would fuel would fuel is the worst fuel. It's the fuel that disrupts for us life. It Z Americans. We tend to pay attention to the millions of you who die from breathing toxic smoke, but the people that used to feel what they complained about the time it takes Of course, the impact on forest is devastating to have hundreds of thousands of people going through the forest, eating wild animals and using the wood Michael Shellenberger Subtitles whose book why environmental alarmism hurts us all. So in both cases, I do think I'm arguing for a moderate view. Which is to intensify our culture in the savannas of the Brazil and Tol allow some some extractive industry, particularly for petroleum in the Albertine rift so that people can be liberated from what his fuel Now I wrote the book, in part because if I just want to say on CNN or MSNBC, I think there should be oil drilling. In for a room. The National park I would be. I mean, I would be crucified for that. But once you read this book, I think it's very hard to read Chapter four, which is the chapter about species extinction and leave that chapter and think. That somehow that it's wrong. How could it be wrong? I mean, I knew that l the Americans and Europeans that are there flew there on jet planes and enjoy a petroleum. Howard lifestyle so and in the idea that petroleum drilling even in the Amazon, or that in these parks is worse than would fuel is also wrong would feel is just massively worse for the natural environment and getting some oil out of the ground. So I think in in in sort of making that moderate case that's what I'm arguing from are arguing that there is a way to balance development and conservation. But we do need to have some appreciation of the importance of moving up the energy ladder and of the importance of growing more food unless lancer concentrated agriculture Yeah, I did a lot of reporting on cooking fuel A couple of years ago when I was at Propublica, and it was there, the issue was antipathy. In a lot of European thunders to supporting projects without being natural gas. Propane LPG, which is a side project after gas production and The is levels of hypocrisy. Here's that are unbelievable, normally has a oil for development programs that they fund to help countries and my Ghana. What about their A levels more practically, and so they won't spend money. You helped bring LPG two communities. They're stuck burning wood, and I said, I'm with you on these levels of democracy. And double speak and clashing agendas. It's around us in many different dimensions. Let's go. I want to talk briefly about population. And growth. No, the white this 10 years ago, I wrote a piece of my daughter's blocked at the times, actually, 12 years ago, drawing on a demographer just if Sami's working on Jesse L. Suppose, work and It's just, he noted that the old model the population bomb is we both know who's total physical. But I called it a population.

For Sir Dale now hard not to love we can't really get a line on her I don't know what John Shearson thinking but clearly Giving away. To be kind of a late running sprinter miler type. I I think she would be wanted to consider. She also happens to on this race when we take the pre entries on Monday. What just looking? At a couple of other. You know interesting possibilities. In addition to hard, not to love anything on into chocolate Sally's that you mentioned Sally's Carlin the. Curling, for Dale Yeah You know she was an okay third in the. Behind Serengeti empress in belts one in Derby City distaff she'd she'd be a longer shot I would think it's Kinda hard for her style might be better going a mile I think in the seventy s they might get a little too far ahead of her. What about into chocolate or sneaking out? thinking. Adamant Hurt Yeah for holiday then. Okay. The beaten favourite. Finite who I have listed as another They David Feel for the wind chill group said, no, he said very, very doubtful. So I took off live. She was second as you know in the. Just. Got Be neck by the nation harbor and the Raven. What about victim of love? Become von about crop drop and I don't know why I think doesn't have any work for quite a while. All right that's as good. A reason as. As you'RE GONNA get. All right. So hard not to love remains kind of the the IFFY. Does that what does that give us sat eleven twelve Dozen depending on who else goes So Yeah. You don't give me the main thing I heard I came on heard you talking about her and it's just kind of. You know how often does that kind of situation happens but clearly paint. you know the top end of this race with with her being the most likely favorites she was. bread free is listed her eight to five. I'm sure the Bob Baffert, his After he after she didn't run all that well here at Churchill in the. Oh. So. Let's let's completely regroup and and and look back the seven eight. You know was similar the way she just absolutely dazzled everybody in the acorn which courses a mile, and then at seven eighths. So. Sure. He's wanted. Wanted to have her go back to that for. Smell. So one of the key one of the really key decisions here is what's going to happen with with Franks rocket and it just looking. Just. Looking down. She has yeah I mean you know the thing about vert Probably does be WHO's Bill Macho runner in the three cores but. Whether or not she's entered or not I don't know how demeaning could get away from certain get empress down the backside. Two them? Yeah. Yeah. You know there's GonNa be a ton of gas in their if You. Know Winter Without Frank's arquette and forgive me eight to five and be challenged from the word. Go by certain getty efforts I. Don't I don't really think I would like to mean chances. Well and then you start folding in if we're not done fold in Venetian harbour is is going to be interested in pressing in the midst of. Biz. Can Go sub forty-five. Out of out of the three quarterbacks. Yeah. So there. Yeah. This is this feels like that you're looking for. For somebody see this is where Dale shows up with with. Sally's Carlin from down and boy how about Greg Foley with the opportunity and you know -Sconsin is run well at keeneland. Yes yes. and you know they're hoping. For a forty three and four opening hats got darn. And see the and you know It's funny because I in the PP's that I've got speech is. Is Not in the set cc is but you gotTa, you gotTa adjust I'm going to reach for my I want to reach for the The PP's where where speeches listed and. She. Is She giving her style which is Sort of. just off. Stalking type. The turn back I think makes her really live given the pace scenario speech becomes very interesting. In there so you would imagine given the top end. Yeah. Nice it it. It's shaping up. You know. The philly mayor. Sprint is one of the races. Marty that historically. When they introduced it. And it first appeared at at Monmouth. And Mary O.`Neil Mary field. It was three quarters and I think it's been running at seven eighths ever since. Well and At at first, it felt like. Something that was really unnecessary. Given a very subtle by the way is who is who we were trying to come up with. Thank you very subtle. And correct. Thank you. And when you think when you think about the history of the sprint. And asking and I were talking yesterday and it came up. Between you know extra the extra heats and the honest ladies and and and the actual philly winners. It. There's a great. There was a great history of phillies running in the race and so. Then having a separate event for them. He just felt like it was it was deluding then then you start with the dirt mile and and you know all of a sudden the sprint. Has, seemingly suffered. But you know maybe not you know. Franks rocket runs in the sprint and runs well, it maybe it's a, you know a flare a shot across the bow. For the Division Yeah, I. Yeah. Turn attention to closing weekend closing couple of days at keeneland. For a decision that. Think People Understood Mardi there. There was some real consternation overcame Lynn's move to. Reduce the turf. Calendar these last four days and you know. So people were seemingly pretty miffed about this decision I. Mean I think they should get over it makes all the sense in the world to me I mean, why would you? We had some real heavy rainier Monday and Tuesday? And You know they the. You're talking about six turf races, which can be one card like at some places where you wiped out the. The turf racing for that Particular Day you know and it's just let's move on I mean it's just I don't know why they would've carded them to begin with that that that's what they were kind of. Miffed about because we had three scheduled for Wednesday three for Thursday three off off four days. And after they understandably. Canceled turf racing Wednesday in the aftermath of the Monday Tuesday rain. they already had three carded for Thursday Friday Saturday and they went down to one. Seventy. Doesn't ran again but I mean it would seem like your priority would be to preserve that. Courses especially can I mean I know you could run with the rails way out one of the jockeys suggested me why don't they? Run A up to eight on on the way way wide out rails And obviously preserved the inner part of the grass but they didn't and you know it's to me it's kind of so what? Now and the. Meat or the season for now closes out and Churchill takes over on Sunday and any anything from these last couple live last couple of cards that. The caught your eye. Not Really. Kind of I've been writing on morning about the Sunday opener Churchill some kind of. Out of mine only overnight here in front of me but Yeah I mean I I thought they were some pretty racist last two days it came in and Happy my brother WanNA race on. Yes. Stay with passed the plate.

"Same. This is fresh air. If you're just joining us, we're talking with filmmaker Craig Foster about his movie, My Octopus teacher which you can find on that Flix. So you know, the common Octopus has a pretty short life span of about a year. And you would you know, you've figured out he'd been spending a lot of time with this octopus and and clearly her lifespan was was coming to an end. Did you start to feel ambivalent about your trips to the ocean during those last days like Were you looking forward to seeing her, but also dreading the end? Yeah, it was obviously difficult. You know, you get close to an animal like this on DH. Um I wass Ah, I wass certainly dreading that. But at the same time, I mean, I guess in some ways, it's better than ah. A human death because it's quite merciful. It's quite it's quite short. Um, and also what happens when she gets to the end of her life. She becomes sin isn't see now, so her brain starts Tio not work so well, so she's not fully aware of what's going on in that brought some comfort. So we see the octopus mate. A male octopus comes along and It's at first just sitting near her, and then it looks like one of his arms is extending out to her. What's mating like for an octopus looked pretty transactional. Yes. I mean, it can be very dangerous as sometimes the in, especially if the female is bigger. She can even kill the male after Mating. So sometime he's sometimes he's very cautious, and that's why I like extending the arm. Right arm tackles this tiny little Penis on the end of the arm. And so it's It's Ah, yeah, they're very anti social animals. It's not. It's not some great love affair, that's for sure. And does this process signal the end of the life cycle for both of male and the female? Correct. So the male, um also started to Terry it quite quickly after after the mating Called. I think the word is similar operas and many animals, especially insects have the same process. So the octopus Hatches her babies and at this point She's sort of been holding on to her life energy to sort of get to that point, and then she's sort of the end of her life and Her energy is gone and her body washes out of her den. And there's this incredibly beautiful but but sad image that you have of her laying on the sea floor. And her eyes were closed. And she's gotten really pale say she can no longer sort of change the color of her skin and Like her body swing. A little bit with the movement of the water. It's It's a It's an incredibly moving shot. I was just wondering what you felt like taking that job. Yeah. I mean, it's ah.

Thank you for this incredible teaching that she's given me. Um And what's so interesting is that and No. I've seen there was there was nothing. What happens is once she moves out of the den. It soon fills up completely with sand say it's basically just a rock edge. That's what's so interesting is that, um Other octopuses seem to be able to some a sense exactly where she stands, and they have made a den and exactly that same place and I've seen this at other dance sites as well. So there's something Maybe they can smell. There's some incredible ability to smell because then they have to, of course, excavate and dig the whole day. Now there's no sign of it having bean And say, I'm sure ah few weeks or a month. I'll find another octopus in that same exactly that same place and it's not Ah ah! 20 or 30, centimeters away.

"Your BMW Mercedes is in your driveway. Thie criminals can actually using a laptop in something that sort of looks like a big antenna about two or three feet long. That antenna is plugged in, and what they can do is send a signal. They know the model of your car and they can look for a key fob. With that information and through the laptop, they will send a signal through this amplified antenna, which will bounce off the key. A fop. That's either in your pants or on your dining room table. And they can amplify the signal and get your key fob to activate with the right crypto call Ode to unlock and start your car. Wow. And so you're kidding. I kid you not and you know it. Actually, police they're recommending now. Um, when you go to sleep at night, put your key fob in the freezer. In the free They're telling you to put your key fob in the freezer. Because that way the signals can't get to it at night. You are listening to Champions of justice with Tom Girardi, ing Thomas Layton and our guest today. He has been the FBI's futurist in residence. A senior advisor to Inter Pol He is the founder of Future Crimes Institute. He is also the author of Future Crimes. Mark Goodman. I have a quote from the director of the FBI, James Comey. We face cyber threats from state sponsored hackers, hackers for hire. Global cyber syndicates and terrorist They seek our state secrets, our trade secrets, our technology and our ideas, things of incredible value to all of us. They seek to strike our critical infrastructure. And to harm our economy. So it seems to me that what we're talking about his cyber crime. That's to prompt One is for financial gain. The other is for destruction on my right and there are many different reasons for cyber threats today, so there are certainly those that are motivated by financial gain, and we've talked about some of those. There are those that are motivated for personal gain. You may have heard of revenge porn a Zen example where two people are together in the living partnership. It goes bad and one or the other releases nude photos that were taken in the privacy of people's home. There's all different types of overlay of these. The technology's into things, such as domestic violence right where people can now track on stock. Their spouse is as an example. So there's the personal gain. There's something called hacktivism, where people will hack for a cause their organizations like the Syrian electronic Army, You may have heard of anonymous or little sect these air people with perceived grievances and will use their power as a distributed sort of crowd sourced group of technologically sophisticated people. Go after a particular target. And yes, of course, there are a state sponsored attacks that come into this country from our enemies and even people that would be qualified as our allies and I itch people here at the radio station. Tell me that we are under almost constant. Attack here at the radio station. Yes, and often these attacks are automated. And that's something that people in the general public don't understand broadly is the refrain When I talk about these issues so often that I hear is well, I've got nothing to hide, or I've got nothing to worry about. Or who cares of my credit card is hacked. And there are many ways to think about this issue. It's kind of like peeling an onion. There's the personal issue that you might deal with. Because it's your credit card. There's thie. Physical issue of your personal safety. If somebody were to hack your car or hack your pacemaker, or be able to use the fob technique that I just mentioned. Wait a minute you said hack my pacemaker. I will come back to that in a minute. I promise. So there's that and then what you might care about as a U. S citizen or a subject of the United Kingdom or somebody who lives in France, right? Throw these national issues, and then there's critical infrastructures. So if you look at what runs a modern society, right, we are not living on the plains of the Serengeti anymore and every critical function of our society. Electricity, bridges, tunnels, air traffic control, water, sewage. All of that is controlled by computer. There's not a single one of those that can run today without a computer and a CZ you quoted James Comey earlier, he said something are few years ago, which was there's never been built a computer that could not be hacked right or there's only two types of people out there. Those who know that they're victims of cyber crime, and those were victims of cybercrime and don't know and so we face them. Very significant challenges and the future and building out the infrastructure of this country when all our infrastructure is hackable because our enemies foreign and domestic and turn those off and caused some pretty serious problems. We saw what happened with Hurricane Katrina or Sandy in New York. Right mean these critical infrastructures are vital to the survival of our country of our nation of our economic superiority, and they can all be attacked. Mark. I don't want the whole hour to be doom and gloom. You give a wonderful Ted talk few years ago, and in the end of the Ted talk you show to slides. The second Last slide was your traditional police tape. Yellow black writing. Police, you know, do not cross and then you ended with the slide that said. Basically police cross and inviting that a solution involves crowdsourcing or using our our knowledge to solve the problem. Shed some light on that and where you see the answer's being so that we don't all fall victim and there are solutions in the future? Sure, Well, there definitely solutions out there. But future crimes and my Ted talk with Silver Clarion call to say, Hey, we need to pay attention to these issues now because the more we keep on adding to the Internet, think of the Internet of things. The more challenges we're gonna have. So before we add There was a quote Francisco that said by 2020. We're gonna add 50 billion new devices to the Internet. And that's everything from pacemakers to baby monitors to, you know, putting WiFi chips in your car and the light before we add those 50 billion things now is the time to lock them down. The reason why I said that the old mantra of policing the police line do not cross don't work anymore is because law enforcement is struggling mightily. To keep up with these challenges, and the reasons are multi fault. One is an issue of resource is another is an issue of training. But it's actually the biggest challenge is the fundamental way Law is written on his attorneys. You and Tom would know that international law moves very, very slowly and throughout history. Almost all crime was local. So if there were a bank robbery in times Square, what do we know? Based upon that crime we know that occurred Let's say in midtown South Precinct of the NYPD. We know they would call the FBI that they would either be the Manhattan district attorney or an assistant U. S attorney for the Southern District of New York that would handle the case. We know what judge would handle it and you would have co location of criminal victim evidence law enforcement in jurisdiction. Those were the good old days today. That's just a quaint idea for the good old critic. Pitiful crime so simple because back today, The thing that we need to deal with is the person who hacks into that same bank in Manhattan, maybe coming from Moscow in Russia, but they don't of course come directly from Moscow. They will go ahead and hack first a computer system in Brazil and then one in Singapore, and then they'll hit the bank in New York as a means of trying to off you skate their tracks. On what That means from the law enforcement perspective is the first place that you may see. Hitting your computer is that last stop in Singapore, so NYPD DEA or FBI might go to the Singaporeans and say, Hey, we need evidence, and they say Okay, we researched it, not us. It's actually coming from Brazil and they go to the Brazilians. We don't have it. And they say go to Moscow, and that's where the case ends. So the inability of law enforcement to work overseas Is incredibly hampered and incredibly slow. And if you compare that to international organized crime, they don't need to ask permission so it might take two years to get evidence from a foreign server working through A variety of mutual legal assistance treaties, and I like to get that data. Criminals can change I P addresses in a matter of seconds, So we have to fundamentally mismatch systems. And that's why I suggested crowdsourcing that we need to get the public involved in these cases..

baller look like Landeskog was going very very well the king Jack took his measure ran by him readily and this is a cold there's a lot of options I think that he's certainly attended if not for the breeders Cup and you know hopefully maybe so three year old races down the road sprint and all right so allow under for wins the king Jack and and despite his troubles he's still active. he was at the sale of the Cayman sale where there were concerned about some high numbers they had a yearling go for eight million plus and they took in around three hundred million in sales so there were some big numbers at the Keeneland sale there was some tremendous numbers of the king on sale the market I guess is very very healthy right now boy you to buy some exciting first club size that we've seen this

American pharaoh we know all of American Pharoah's progeny we're going to do well if the sale so it's nice to see that the market is doing well and then force racing this will breeding stamp wins healthy yeah except there we are down on foals so there if they're gonna try to have all this racing they have about the country the fall crops gonna have to increase that's why the September yearling sale is kind of important it's one of those marathon sales where you know the the big ticket items like these these is you know five five six five seven seven figure horses they're going to get all of the press but this is a sale business log and it goes on for weeks and weeks and you're going to get the horses that eventually going to fill out these cards at the end of this sale so again the full crop is down yes that could hurt field size yes hopefully we'll see horses race a little bit longer I think that's always been the goal you know with courses to sing to retire a little bit too early

winning the grade one to tell you now we're not familiar with the jockey selfie Doyle who sounds like she's a female she is and she's based in Kentucky she wrote she writes also in the Midwest in the summers at Arlington park to Larry Jones has trusted us so few Doyle to rights retention writings repair all long and very very well I might add to read sticks with the fair grounds in the last couple of races that she's written sweeping I know she's giving great trips to the horse well one in one of the minor races for Phillies in the Midwest where she just sat white inside didn't worry about any kind of traffic always was traveling well always need to which she had the holes opened up at the right time it was almost as if she had a sixth sense and in the Alabama the race with the specs for the two mile a quarter this signature race for three year old without at least she gave this. a great trip as well that was a race war the race was delayed for a half hour because of the tremendous rain storm she sat inside again came out to Denver to leave perfect trip and I think she is from a distance a little bit too long but she fix this horse like the gloves and perhaps as a writer will hear more off down the road. then we end up with the E. N.. Amanda is finished in the derby and the winner was by an act at thirty one to one math wizard. boy a sailor telly I I'm I don't know what to say about these three year olds because this is just that no pun intended this is improbable result math wizard is thirty one dessert to thirty one this was claimed for twenty five thousand dollars earlier this year and while he's run well into grade stakes races he was never able to get over the hump and he's been beaten by horses like Mister money and when Dale and some other nice three year olds but not the maxim securities of the world and in the big names and it was a lot of pace going on in this race and Mr was a math wizard came from next to last in with white is tearing into the stretch so he was best on this day didn't go all credit to him his connections but it's just disappointing performance for the three big names in the race of course maximum security was scratched earlier in the week it looks like he will run this year. Mister money who is stepping up in class for the first time he was sort of a reluctant pacesetter when improbable didn't break use a kind of course the likes of secular third when he when improbable didn't break she ended up on the lead I don't think you really love dipping eventually settled was going very easy on the lead it had everything is away and so that the war of wills the Preakness winner will he was sitting right off the hip of Mister money and yet every chance string of the stretcher was just not there for him improbable probably had those trouble in the race because he didn't break and indeed down inside but you know you can put a blanket over five forces begin to exit the wire will race won by thirty to one shot and you have to wonder are these really top class forces are going to contend in major races like the breeders Cup down the road and again this is a moral division it has been modeled since day one and we are hoping and maybe it'll happen on this Saturday the seventy three year old going to step up and grab the brass ring. all right speaking about this Saturday at Santa Anita will open on Friday and Belmont already open but they will both have a big weekend of races and give us an indication of who's going to and who might win the breeders Cup tell us first about what's going to be on the tab at Belmont and then we'll switch to stand unaided download the big big race of course is the Jockey Club gold Cup breeders Cup classic indications couple of three year olds couple in nice forces on tap for the Jockey Club gold Cup let's start with the three year olds you've got to traverse winner code of honor for should make a he is a horse that went very well the Kentucky Derby you and welded to wire to win that race with the slow pace and rally them down and of course then he won the Travers maybe he is bringing our three year old in the second half of the year we know that that you can get the distance who won the the Travers and of course he's trained by McGee he who sources seem to get better with maturity and distance the will look traveled and will troubled passages and he will try again to get some good luck in the Jockey Club gold Cup Tacitus of course went in the Belmont Stakes he was against the bias that day did not run very well in the Jim dandy he broke terribly ended up down on the bed rail in the traverse somehow we made to leave on a bad rail he is a little bit to read up an form he is very talented he has also been very unlucky as for the older horses will eat at you Shia who is coming out of a runner up effort to in V. would work behind preservationist was also running the Jockey Club gold Cup these are two rock solid older horses preservationist likes Belmont did well he is one of the mile a quarter there this year in the suburban vino Rosso for Todd Pletcher who's been very carefully handled cut kind of skip the race in Saratoga he's been pointing for this all along which. optical gold Cup a very very big race a very competitive field and maybe we'll get some clarity in the three year old division has or some of the other races I mean midnight bees who is going to be a big big favorite in the Belle Dame you're going to get a horse is like imperial him to is going to be a big favorite in the vase Berg stakes and then of course you've got a couple of two year old races the mist Rio and the pilgrim watch out for crystal in the mist Rio she looks like a pretty talented runner all right then we move to the west coast. in V. on Friday on opening day at Santa Anita a we have a really nice cards to be graded stakes races and it's kind of a case with the two year olds we're going to take a look at the American pharaoh stakes involved ever since I get eight rings back on Capitol member of back on track this was for his debut AS was so so impressively one battling for the stretch and everyone was talking this was baptised Nexstar and the winner was the big favorite in the del Mar futurity and dump the job coming out of the gate so we still don't know how good it rings is split after his motor along these restrictions were sent me American fare in the American pharaoh is going to run against the son of American pharaoh named American funeral who is a very impressive debut winter as well stepping up in class and distance you've got the upset winner of the del Mar futurity gnocchi who has to prove that race is not a fluke as well in the chandelier for two year old fillies will Baffert's got that one it looks like over a barrel bass to the winner of the del Mar debutante going to be a big favor in that race the eighty D. stakes is for turf sprinters I believe that wrist moved back to five furlongs this year should be a good race Eddie Haskell Mr Vargas fast forces pee wee Reese returning opal layoff classy horse and of course stormy liberal two time defending the breeders Cup turf sprint winner trying to get back to the winner's circle on a Saturday is the awesome again in the big name in that race is McKenzie for Baffert if he wins this race is going to going to the breeders Cup classic barring some surprising effort or gigantic performance in the race at the Jockey Club gold Cup as a big favor for the breeders Cup classic maybe draft because of course you can watch out for as a long shot second in the Pacific classic looks to be coming back into his best form the John Henry is coming up we've got United in their against Grecian fire this and yada on Sunday looks like a really interesting race all these candy in secret spice to very underrated.
