I think maybe it was foreclosed by pretend tire company and he bought it at auction. So let's see doesn't say in gazette remember how much he bought it for. I don't think he fully disclosed it. But i think it became known so this whole process has started back in august. The twenty nine thousand nine the city billions issued a request for proposals.

Market value. that's alabama value. So was was saying is i. He feels like nick. Sabin did that as a recruiting ploy. Right put it out there. Hey our kids are getting these huge deals but also that it's because you know every college athlete and quarterback is not going to get that deal only does that alabama or clemson and places like that. That seems to be what shaw's implying. What's your your feeling on that. It's never going to be fair when you have some of these. Big schools is just not.

"Now to the other side of this peak. Twenty twenty one moment el salvador. Well the initial reaction to the el salvador news was jubilation among bitcoin. There have been some questions for international observers particularly those invested in the current fiat system. The concerns around environment crime that you would expect. We're all aired out. Libertarian minded global audiences. Meanwhile took umbrage with the compulsion inherent in the legal tender law. These folks argued in effect that forcing people to accept. Bitcoin was at odds with bitcoin locally. It seemed some people had the same concerns although it was less from. Some deep seated libertarian principles and more from practical questions about how it would actually work. What sort of additional infrastructure or processes it would take and what if someone didn't wanna deal with bitcoin volatility. I think the best way to give you. The flavor of last night's speech to actually use pull quotes as translated by alejandro machado. A honda is a co founder of the open money initiative and has been working on bitcoin and places like venezuela for years so as a particularly good source he tweets as address to the nation thread quote. Bitcoin will be optional. Nobody will receive bitcoin if they don't want it. There's no obligation to express any price in bitcoin. But it's possible to do so. The state will accept bitcoin for payments. If you don't wanna do this don't because currency so there will now be no capital gains taxes on it same as with dollars euros etc now. Article seven the opposition has demonized so much. Every economic agent must accept bitcoin as a means of payment. We can't take this article out of context. You also have to look at article. Eight and fourteen economic agents are obligated to accept bitcoin but not to accept it when a tourist from europe comes into wipes a card he or she will be spending euros but we are charging him dollars. This is what will happen with bitcoin. A tourist pain. Btc and if the merchant wants dollars it will get dollars. The government wallet will have to account one dollars in another and bitcoin the government while it will not use up any data all you need to use. The government wallet is a mobile internet signal.

"A turnover every now and then a nice throw in the back of the end zone and landry but then as they started winning old browns one again oda prowse one again oda browns pete kansas city. You you see baker mayfield. Your iso telling you. There's something different when in all honesty. It's the same thing all right. Well let's just straight talk straight talk wireless because it's not only baker who's gonna be looking for the contract and the quarterback from that draft class. What other players will be playing now. You say baker's not playing but how about this year in twenty twenty one this coming season what players are playing for contract. Who's playing for his money right now. Well let's stay with his team both guys. Ob j. n. Landry ob j comes back and becomes lbj with the blonde hair and kicking of the net. Which i love then. They've got to think about extending his contract and taking a look at his numbers because he will be heavily under pay compared to other receivers in the league his teammate jarvis. Landry is will what happens with that. Can we keep to receivers it. Twenty five million dollars question right a piece right. 'cause if ob j. gets twenty-five i'll take twenty three and then i'll get the other two from j. Somehow that's that's the way land she's gonna take about in ob j. vice versa. So that's an issue that they've got to figure out how to address in can because you play with the salary cap. He played with numbers. You could pay whoever you wanna pay. Then you think about it. Let's go to saquon barkley at the giants his his opportunity to come back off. Acl at the running. Back spot. the only guy that i can think of off the top of my head that had a career like say quantity beginning and then eventually got hurt. Was adrian peterson. But asia peterson came back in asia. Peterson look like adrian peterson. No problem even better. So he's playing for huge contract and is to not only that if he could help the giants get to the playoffs and help danny jones become the guy that they got when he drafted and he thought that that was guy. It helps his contract situation. Allen robinson from chicago bears is. He's on the franchise tag plan for seventeen million dollars which is below market value for player of his production. You look at what he's capable of doing. No matter who the quarterback he's been consists but how important he will he be especially if just feels as the one that takes over. He can also have more value based on the quarterback extremely important. So he's looking to have a big cash day. Then you think about the kyla. Murray arizona cardinals. What's going to happen. They're they're they're in a tough division. Okay there's a decision not only be made on a long term extension but also on the fifth year option pickup right. That'll need to be made. And if he goes out there and he leads the charge in cliff kingsbury in hold on his job because if they falter abc. Predictive kingsbury gets fired. And if that happens now all of a sudden column he doesn't have the guy that made an offense just for him just for him. It turns different now. Coach comes in and say well i. I don't really want this guy. I don't know if i can remember this guy. He takes him to the playoffs even a wild card berth. Just the last team barely slip in. That's that's more improvement and that's more than what the car does have had in recent years. Now we're talking long term extension. That would say a lot in that division for do that. They'll do that. Not division against those those teams. Especially those i miss it and i know i'm missing some guys robert woods out in. La believe he's up for contract extension and he's terrific in terms of everything that embodies a professional wide receiver people always say. Why are you always putting robert woods list. Because he's a pro man nothing to do with him being usc in la. He's a real pro. Like do do play in when you say. He's a review a real player. But that's what people should listen. If you say you get caught up in hype though. Oh he had one hundred and five catches thirteen. No no no no. I want him to be opposite of me. I wanna play with him. Yeah it's a real pro and that you saying that is highest compliment because you would know number one. Trust your eyes. So i i would definitely do that as something. That definitely a name. You keep on the straight talk brought to you by straight talk wireless no contract no compromise coming up every year. Eight teams are faced with the challenge. Going from worst to first so who is likely to make that leap this year. We'll discuss that after. He has this from hulu still wearing the clothes from last night. Not kidding smell still pounding on that remote control night after night. Hulu has all the shows and movies you love and before you ask..

"No toilet ever got close to that logic. It was like ten to fifteen care something like that. I guess with rick but yes yes yes exactly. It was like maybe got. Maybe like ten gay and see if you rake ten k. Is any so much you can lose etc like. I looked at the top. Forty like forty regular guys who play play bunch in like playing games like plane and the average rake so fall this stall of may so like five minutes into the year was i. Think ninety four thousand dollars so fall so per person unim-. They're raking over to indicate each. So if you just take like a two hundred fields like the highest stakes previously you had like maybe fifty guys rake in ten kia. Now you have like forty is rake in like two hundred k. Yeah so like that's eight. I mean i. I hope i hope. That's that's eight million dollars right. So let's just say daybreak eight million dollars and this is a two hundred r-enfield right so the forty guys. Rake eight million dollars. Let's say the next fifty guys reagan to the full million dollars like hof volume the and whatever. That's twelve million. Then let's say the next hundred guys rake between the next hundred guys. Let's say they rake five million probably reasonable. So you have been seventeen million dollars of rake being taken so before anyone even starts to make money in prophet and you know by lombo's vinyl bitcoin. Whatever it may be the winning plays after you win and seventy million for the whole pool to be even just from the race you know which is which is wild which is really well and he's also conservative numbers because a lot glazer blocked on most sites. You don't actually see say this seventeen million very likely twenty million twenty five million wherever it may be so this pool of players needs to win twenty five million just before the break even then you had forty guys were considered like talk high level leagues entity plays who you would imagine. Would be making like five hundred k. Plus a yeah you know. And you have guys like oxo to tim items. I cock stan jason. Koon like you'd imagine these guys are making like five hundred k.

In brief sprinkler grew from around ninety three million revenue during the april thirty quarter of last year to rent one hundred eleven million in the same period this year and over the same timeframe it became a little bit more unprofitable however if you do used companies preferred adjusted operating income metric actually saw slightly better profitability in.

"A lot. More kids in. It's it's probably a combination of both children obviously lawrence get more education than i would i venture to guess. It's also a bit of a potential childcare issue too right if your kids are in school. And that's cheaper than summer camp and certainly a lot easier to navigate than are difficult and competitive childcare. No situation this ours. Thanks for the update. Marta michael the newly created new orleans tourism and cultural fund set gave their first grant out this week and they're giving it to the super bowl host committee. Tell us the background on this organization. And what was the purpose of the fund in the first place. Yes oh new. Orleans spins a ton of public money on the tourism industry. We're talking about ten over one hundred million dollars. A year in public dollars goes to facilitating marketing encouraging. The tourism and hospitality industry but the majority of those dollars tend to go to large institutions like convention center or the superdome To things like attracting the essence festival so these kind of the money tends to go to kind of bigger institutions now. The ideal on this fund was set. Up was that this was kinda gonna be a different type of tourism and culture spending where instead of paying these bigger institutions in readiness. Money to big events. You would be trying to get the money directly to you. Know quote unquote culture bearers so musicians and artists and mardi gras indians. I'm trying to get out. Smaller amounts of money directly to people who make the culture of new orleans happen and to support them. Now that's not the legal limitations of what this money can be spent on to be clear however you know over the years that this was pitched and and you know the fund was being set up the first set up in two thousand twenty through twenty one thousand nine hundred way that it was pitched was that this was going to be a different type of tourism spending. The money was going to get directly to again contribute directly to that new orleans culture so instead their i grant has gone to the super bowl host committee. How much and why. Yes so the total grant award is one point two million dollars but that's going to be spread out over five years So this year it'll be one hundred and seventy five thousand dollars and then two hundred fifty thousand dollars to four years after that Now the reason. Why gets a little complicated. And i'm gonna do my best to do as briefly as possible but also encourage people to to read the article where mike clear but basically this new fund is the result of emerge between two publicly funded marketing agencies for the tours industry. So we used to have these two agencies. One was new orleans company and one was the new orleans. Tourism marketing corporation in both of them had more or less the same mission which was to generally market. The city's tourism industry to attract out of town visitors so for a long time. People have thought that those two organizations should merge but there were debates over whether they should be consolidated under worley company which is a private nonprofit or new orleans tourism marketing corporation which is a public body with a publicly appointed. Board has public meetings is subject to the public The the open meetings law the public request a public records law so that had been debate for for some years in. then you may remember that The toy mail the toy. Trials fair share deal Now the fair share deal was something that she negotiated in two thousand nineteen between the hospitality industry and the state of louisiana and basically the idea was to funnel more of these torres him in hotel taxes into more municipal services especially infrastructure projects at at the sewage water poured michigan succeeding to a certain extent one of the compromises on of the ways that the hospitality industry kind of one in that situation was that they were able to consolidate those two marketing agencies under the new orleans company banner so basically all almost all of new orleans and tourism marketing corporations funds and mission were transferred to new orleans and company however there was a little bit of money One funding source left behind that originally thought was about was gonna go to infrastructure spending but instead the city took this recurring revenue source. That gives you some someone ballpark of three to five million dollars. Every year and instead of putting that the infrastructure they decided to set up this new fund. Now the new fund not only inherited that new revenue source. They also inherited a few financial obligations at new orleans tourism. Marketing corporation had already agreed to so in order to attract something like essence festival for example. You know marketing agencies in cities will throw in incentives and sometimes just straight up cash so they're cash payments to essence festival that that are still being made every year for example now one of the agreements and that they inherited to pay one point two million dollars to the super bowl host committee. Now what's weird. Is that these other payments for example to the essence festival to jazz fest that they also have inherited they have not gone through grant process. Those payments have not gone through any approval process so it was a little bit strange that the super bowl host committee payment did have to grant process if there was already an agreement in place that would have forced them to pay the mine. So it's not clear why they had to go through the grant process exactly so i asked why would why is the super bowl. Host committee payment kind of separate that being singled out for grant approval and not the essence festival payments. Running the other ones and the answer we got was that the essence festival payments were contractually obligated while there was not official contract for the super bowl host committee payments. Okay i followed up and asked well. Was this fun. Actually legally obligated to make these super bowl host committee payments and response. I got was that they would have to check with gerald counsel so they couldn't tell me whether they actually had to make these payments to the super bowl host committee before approving this. Okay yeah and just just for some context on this. The super bowl host committee being subsidized publicly is not is not a new thing. The the twenty thirteen super bowl. The host committee had a budget around seventeen million dollars. Most of that most. That budget came from public funding in the form of either direct grants or Or text rebates from the city in the state the city every time a super bowl comes around you know offers big packages of income tax or sales tax rebid for hotel rooms and things like that along with pledging in in kind support in the form of public security police and the department of public works. Yeah if i can add to that. I mean i think that folks in the hospitality industry would probably Would probably agree that it is important for the city and for you know these tourism institutions to attract an event like the super bowl That's going to make a lot of people. A lot of money is going to be a lot of you. Know up juries for musicians and chefs. And it's going to be a good thing for the hospitality industry. I mean i think the difference here is that they perceived they've received direct funding. They've received direct funding in a pass from from the.

Like a theory so nf tease basically act as virtual deeds and they convey ownership of digital asset. Each one gets uploaded to a digital ledger where it tracks information like when it was created when it was sold for how much it was sold and who bought it and how are we seeing the music industry use teas. So we've seen musicians jump and auction off music. Tickets experiences art unreleased music songs. They hadn't put out before didn't think they'd have an audience for but you know have been able to find sort of rabid fans online so blau a dj has sold. I think over eighteen million dollars worth of these things. Seventeen million dollars in the past month. Most of that through a token is release of his three-year-old album. Ultraviolet and that grossed eleven point six million dollars and briefly held the record for the highest price paid for a single. Nfl tea at three point.

Yeah so why is it so interesting to musicians in particular and this year in particular. This is super interesting to musicians because it is potentially a way to really connect with your core avid fans in another way and to make money from them the way that most artists make money as much as eighty percent of their income for a lot of artists is on the road touring. They haven't been able to do that for more than a year at this point with the pandemic so a lot of folks are struggling strapped for cash and they haven't seen their fans in over a year so this is another way to connect and another way to make money

And explains why there's such interest over its future. You may have been on a tour of george. Washington's grand state at mount vernon but the nation's first president also owned four other farms in northern virginia. The one farthest north and closest to dc was called river farm. The land was in the washington family for nearly one hundred years from seventeen sixty to eighteen fifty nine down here. Catherine ward showed me around the place through meadow of tall native grasses and flowers along the river and to see a massive osage orange treat the biggest i've ever seen. This is anthony magnificent. And it's quite old may have been a gift from thomas jefferson a ceiling sent back from the lewis and clark expedition. Ward is a longtime neighbor of river farm. She started spending time here shortly. After moving to the area in nineteen eighty-five she spent countless hours volunteering at river farm planting and weeding the twenty seven acres. It feels like a public park. But it's not. It's the headquarters of the american horticultural society. The group now wants to sell the land in an effort to stay afloat during the pandemic. the property's worth almost seventeen million dollars according to county tax records. Come here it would be devastating if they tried to divide the property up. Multiple homes on it word is president of the local civic association. She says a lot of neighbors were shocked to hear river. Farm was going up for sale. It was like you've gotta be kidding. Me while neighbors were surprised. The idea of selling wasn't new inside the organization. A idea selling river farm goes back Many many many years five brachman is interim executive director of the american horticultural society.

She just said this. We're getting married. You know as the perfect choice serve as the state senator who lives a few minutes away from her farm and who represents the area. He started an online petition to save the property gathering hundreds of signatures. He says one reason people are so worried about the future of river. Farm is because of what happened recently with another historic riverside property the collingwood mansion about a quarter mile to the south. The house was leveled about six months ago and that was also historic property. Actually had my junior high school prom dinner on the back. Lawn served by our parents about thirty years ago and The memories of the loss of that property in our community very fresh. And everybody's minds we're neighbor katherine ward says.

It's not crypto currency like bitcoin. But it's kind of like it. I think my first experience with f. Although i didn't know at the time was a site called crypto kitties. Are you remember that. Still around by the way crypto. Kitties dot co so crypto. Kitty's Was a chance for you to spend some of your hard earned bitcoin or dollars. I guess if you want but pretty much. People used crypto to do it to by cartoon cats. You wouldn't own a cat there'd be no cat involved. You wouldn't even own a picture of a cat. You just own the digital copy of the cat and yet you can make a lot of money on that. 'cause the cat values went up and down depending on who knows what you can breed the cats and create new kinds of cats. That might even be more valuable. It was an investment opportunity and investment opportunity. And i think some people made money on this probably for everybody who made a buck. Somebody lost a buck because that's kind of how it works. That's my first non fungible token lately. It's kind of going crazy. People for instance nba highlights. I don't know how that even makes sense. It's called nba top shot. And you might say. Well that's crazy except that had two hundred seventeen million dollars in sales seventy six thousand buyers and the value in the last thirty days on Nba top shot has gone up.

Don't drown out our favorite little place to play in the river and know what at those hearings.

Annual budget and twenty four percent of that budget is dedicated to try to restore and mitigate wildlife issues including the salmon and they have not one shred of evidence for all that expenditure of any kind of success now. The snake river power system actually generates a surplus of power about forty percent of their generation. And of course that varies depending on the water flow from year to year. But they do present a surplus and back quinn. They could sell power to california for about sixty dollars megawatt hour. It was a nice return today. Retail power sold california is about twenty dollars per megawatt hour which is well below the cost of production for most of the dams in the pacific northwest now. Bpa won't make individual damn economics available to us but we know that the grand cooley is pretty efficient. In terms of how much power generates relative to cost whereas support lower snake river dams are much less efficient in fact the entire production of power from the four lower snake river dams is confined to the spring runoff. Which is actually win. The northwest grid has a surplus of power. Bpa literally has to pay their wind. Power sources and their solar power sources to shut down during these high water flows.

"Which applied to mafia members. And those who dealt with them. The fact that george never talked about his past suggests he might have been bound by a similar restriction. The mafia were very active in sicily in the late eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds. And it's possible that george ran across them when he was a boy. If so that in encounter might have led him to fleeing to the united states. It could also have been why rafael felt like he had to return to their home country. Whatever secrets is childhood held. George spent the nineteen twenties thirties and forties raising his family in fayetteville west virginia but apparently he couldn't escape his past. George frequently argued with the other members of the towns italian-american community usually about a benito mussolini george despise the man and this put him in conflict with other immigrants who supported the fascist prime minister. It's possible that one of georgia's friends or neighbors belong to the american mafia after all by the nineteen twenty s. Many italian mobsters had immigrated to the united states so when george debated italian politics with the locals he could have made a very dangerous enemy without realizing it in nineteen forty-five five maybe the organization felt like they'd had enough of georgia's anti mussalini statements and retaliated by taking his children. Well it's true that the mafia didn't usually perform kidnappings it wasn't totally unheard of one of the most famous examples was the nineteen seventy-three abduction of oil fortune heir. John paul getty the third in the nineteen seventies. The getty family was as famous for their oil well as they were for their infighting. The patriarch j paul. Getty was a notoriously. Difficult man frugal. To the point of pathology. He had payphones installed in his english manor home. So his staff wouldn't add to his phone bill understandably. He didn't get along very well with his grandson john. Paul getty the third who went by paul. Abo- hime ian teenager who being kicked out of his italian prep school for clarity. From huron will refer to j paul getty as getty and his grandson will be paul. Paul kept a low profile to avoid his grandfather's vitriol but that all changed when he suddenly disappeared in rome soon after his worried family received a series of letters and a phone call from the kidnappers. They said they were members of the mafia and they demanded a ransom of seventeen million dollars for polls safe return but getty said that he had fourteen grandchildren besides john and if he gave them a sent it would only encourage similar opportunists to go after them for that reason. Getty refused to pay in response. The mafia cutoff polls ear and mailed it to a newspaper with their demands. Eventually the family paid the mafia three million dollars though getty himself only paid two point two million the maximum amount that he could write off as a loss for tax purposes. And by the end of nineteen seventy-three. Paul was back within the family. Fold though much the worse for wear. This wasn't the only time. The mafia used kidnapping as tactic in rome. In nineteen seventy five. The criminal organization kidnapped gianni bulgari a famous italian. Who was forty years old at the time. His affluent family quickly paid two million dollars for his return and he emerged relatively unscathed by the ordeal. However the solders were decidedly not wealthy. So it seems unlikely that the mob would have kidnapped their children for money. What's more george and jenny never received a ransom note. That said it is possible that the criminal society could have murdered the solder children in retaliation for something. George did the mafia's. Arcane codes supposedly protect women and young children but they don't always abide by these values take for example the case of giuseppe di matteo in one thousand nine hundred ninety three santino di matteo a former member of the sicilian. Mafia was preparing to testify against them in court in a bid to silence him. The mob kidnapped his twelve year. Old son giuseppi.

Iota still a threat after killing dozens in Central America

"A set of devastating hurricanes have pummeled central america on november third hurricane bertha. I struck nicaragua and then made its way through honduras in guatemala. According to the red cross more than two million people in the region were affected by floods and landslides caused by the hurricane and then this week another hurricane hurricane iota made landfall in central america delivering yet another blow to the region. The two storms back to back aren't only devastating to communities in central america but are also complicating efforts to mitigate covid nineteen joining us. Now to talk about what's happening on the ground is jeff ernst a freelance journalists base in honduras. Jeff thanks for being with us after having me. So what are conditions on the ground in honduras right now right now. Much of honduras is is underwater Particularly in the northwest soula valley region which is home to about two million people and putting the second largest in honduras and pedro soula as really the motor of of the country. So the fact that so much of this area in particular is underwater is really indicative of how damaging is given that roughly forty percent of the gdp or more is produced in this region but really After i iota we have much of a widespread damage Across the whole country was a much larger storm so just particularly crest the north coast and the west. They're still a rising waters. Some parts We've last a lot of bridges and roads and other infrastructure and as many people are currently displaced by the flooding. The storm's first struck nicaragua before going through honduras and guatemala. What were the effects in those two countries with evita it. It was damaging but it went through a pretty lowly populated area of nicaragua but iota so much larger that it really hit harder in nicaragua. And even the wins were harder to so nicaragua. We're seeing pretty widespread damage flooding even in the capital of managua and south of it so nicaragua's pretty devastated this point. You you've been reporting on This region in honduras for awhile have. How have the government's responded to effort on the ground. The the government's response has been heavily criticised ahead of eight to actually scheduled the special holiday for that week. In order to try to promote domestic tourism and and stimulate the economy which has been really hit hard by the covid nineteen pandemic and there was a clear reticence by the government to cancel that vacation and so they did not emit alerts or or evacuation orders which led to tens of thousands of people completely caught off guard been and then ended up getting trapped on the roads some for as many as five days and of course that led to more deaths which we really don't know how much yet because the water was never even able to fully recede from eight to before we got hit by iota So there's really some clear negligence by the government here and then with in terms of responding. They're they're completely overwhelmed By it and a complete clearly unprepared and missouri question of how they're spending the resources government just a year ago or just from israel this for war that really has has seen of her for country like and yet they're emergency response. Units doesn't have the votes necessary to be able to deal with the strong currents that we're seen from the flooding in order to rescue people in until the water gets down. Do people are very upset. Definitely more than ever with the government and and this could definitely to even more political instability than we've seen down here in the past and that political instability could also spur more Migration out of the region is that right coming towards A whether that's the united states are moving towards mexico or other places as people try to survive absolutely. There's already people organizing on social media caravans That looks like they're planning for january most of them Whether or not that materializes There's just no doubt. We're going to see an uptick in migration over the next year particularly as covy nineteen travel restrictions are eased You know. I talked to so many people already particularly the young people Who just see no opportunity They have no work and now they've lost everything so they really have nothing to lose And they see migrating as the quickest way to be able to help to their families to rebuild and recoup everything. They've lost the united states government. has limited at least under the trump administration migration from many of these countries at the same time it's ass many central american countries to help it with its asylum policies Has the us. Government sent any aid to these countries as they struggle to deal with the blows from these hurricanes the lack of leadership from the us Following these crisis is really shocking. There's been no word from the state department or from the white house other than us aid which is down here. Most recently after i iota they designated seventeen million dollars through the region half of which is going to honduras and then also the. Us military base. Don't here has been a source of of rescue missions which has definitely been very helpful but seventeen million dollars when we're talking about billions and billions dollars damage and really in nine hundred ninety eight when hurricane mitch hit which was the worst natural disaster in central america to date it was. Us leadership that mobilized support from the global community and that is completely lacking at this point. president-elect biden has expressed is concerned and support for the region. So there's hope that when he takes office he will take that traditional leadership role of the. Us to help one of its neighbors. I'll be watching to see how this pans out.

India records world's highest increase in new COVID-19 cases

"Now, where another record rise in daily Corona virus infections has brought the country's total case count to above five million it's adding more new cases a day than any other country in the world fueling concerns about how the economy will continue to cope with the pandemic official forecasts predict a ten percent contraction this year the government has allocated tens of billions of dollars to help battle the economic crisis but there's some head-scratching today over a new multi million dollar contract that's been awarded to Indian conglomerate Totta the BBC's around Mukherjee. What we're looking at is one hundred, seventeen million dollars to refurbish the existing parliament complex. But this is part of a larger two point seven billion dollar government project to give a face lift and modernized old colonial era government buildings in the heart of Delhi even when this plan was initially announced, which was in October last year many questioned the need to spend so much at a time when India is just coming out of its lockdown batting, a rising number of one thousand cases growing at an alarming rate, the economy has contracted by the worst in decades. Where does the government going to get this money from as you say why? Hasn't the government put this plan on ice of the government says that look this parliament complex dates way back to the nineteen twenties now since then various parliament constituencies have increased and therefore so have the number of parliamentarians and the staff there simple argument is this complex isn't big enough. The also interestingly want to build despite twenty, twenty two so that it can coincide with India celebrating seventy five years of its independence, and where's the government GonNa get the money to fund this project that is million dollar question in the same week on Monday. The government asked for parliamentary approval of to infuse nearly two point seven, two, billion dollars to. Help the ailing banking sector here in India deal with the prospects of bad loans which are likely to rise. So the message that the government has given is that we are cash strapped, but the question is, where are you going to get this money from for this kind of luxurious project at a time when India is battling a national crisis, more questions than answers then the BBC's democracy in new. Delhi. Thank you. Thank you.

Coronavirus Helps Tuna Titans Overcome Their Seafood Scandal

"From wondering. I'm David Brown. And this is business. Wars daily on this Wednesday march twenty fifth. We're shaking things up a little bit this week which feels Well pretty fitting these days in the two and a half months since China reported the first death from the Corona virus the world is transformed. So we're taking a look back at some of our previous episodes just to get a sense of how dramatically this pandemic has changed our lives and the way businesses are operating in such an incredibly short time. The viruses devastating some industries in. Its giving new opportunities to others. Of course this month it could be giving new life to an industry rife with environmental problems and scandal. That industry would be the tuna business early. This month Americans began stockpiling. Someone say hoarding items ranging from Toilet Paper to nonperishable foods? Those foods included canned soup rice dry beans and a lot of cans of tuna fish. It's a boon for the tune of business. Of course which has recently been pushed to the brink by its own shady dealings. Check out this story about the seafood scandal which I ran on December third twenty nineteen. It's either no surprise. Or it's Karma Bumblebee. Foods is gone bankrupt. One reason sometimes crime really doesn't pay it. Twenty seventeen. The ICONIC TUNA processor pleaded guilty for its role in a massive price fixing scheme that kept canned tuna prices artificially high between twenty eleven in two thousand thirteen. The company was handed. Fine of twenty five million smackers bumblebee still owes the US seventeen million dollars and IT spending tens of millions of dollars defending itself against civil lawsuits filed by Walmart Kroger and other buyers who say they paid too much for Tuna Company leaders say their legal challenges force them to file for chapter eleven protection. Fcf fishery a Taiwanese fish supplier and bumblebees largest creditor is buying BUMBLEBEES ASSETS. For about nine hundred. Twenty five million dollars. The case has all the elements of suspense novel back in Twenty Eighteen former. Bumblebees CEO Chris. Laszewski was indicted for his role in forming the cartel. His trial in a California federal court began in early November and stretched on throughout the month. The Chew SQI DENIES THE ALLEGATIONS BUT WITNESSES. Some of whom turned against him to protect themselves from prison. Time testified that lets choose approached him aggressively about fixing prices one witness admitted to lying to the FBI. Another testified that he feigned a car accident to avoid meeting with Laszewski. If convicted the chew ski could face a prison term of up to ten years. Chicken of the sea which assisted in the government investigation was not charged. Starkest was fined one hundred million dollars in September. The maximum penalty allowed by law in August star. Kist warned that it could face bankruptcy if the full amount is enforced according to the Wall Street Journal. But let's roll back the clock at twenty eleven here shall we or why would any large company let alone all three of the biggest sellers of processed tuna in America but themselves and this kind of jeopardy to begin with one reason are changing tastes? Sales of canned tuna dropped forty percent over the three decades ending in two thousand sixteen as they turn to healthier and more convenient meals. Millennials have been blamed possibly unfairly you decide for killing the tuna sandwich and decimating mayonnaise sales as we noted here in an earlier story about the tuna troubles. At least one tuna executive complained that a lot of millennials. Don't even own can openers. But could the lowly can opener really be to blame for such a big decline in appetites for the iconic seafood? Oh come on. Look also to federal warnings. Starting in two thousand and four those warnings included eating too much canned tuna that could cause mercury poisoning. Cnn reported VAT was more than enough to further displays the tuna sandwiches a staple of the American lunch bag. Thank you very much. But culture shifts plague all industries today and many large companies managed to pivot and survive not so much bumblebee analysts. Say

TEMPO Home Weightlifting Solution Launches

"Tempo has just announced that. They're open for preorder. I think as of yesterday and what tempo ease is another one of these. Essentially in-home virtual training fitness type devices. Which has got a mirror built into it with Other official intelligence and three body mapping for feedback and the difference with this particular one is that it comes with dumbbells barbells. So the idea is that you can do your weight training whilst getting all of your movements tracked by the Mirror with that. Three D body mapping and the artificial intelligence will help tell you all the things that you're doing wrong and presumably to make sure you're doing everything right and of course you'll be able to tap into the virtual fittler fitness classes and presumably virtual personal instruction as well price point is about two thousand dollars. Us and thirty nine dollars subscription model. They've got some big. Vc backing not necessarily big in terms of dollars. I think they've raised seventeen million dollars to date. But there's some big companies behind them which mean this pretty deep pockets. So they've got a chance and look interested to hear from those people in the fitness game in the personal training game particularly about how all these at home devices and these virtual mirror type devices is impacting the industry. You're always going to impact the industry. I wonder because you know why. They really directly competing with the personal training classes in a gym. Of course it opens up more options potentially for personal trainers to be part of the platform. But again I'd be really curious to hear from those people in the industry. Is this actually a a plus or in terms of the personal trainers themselves? The personal training industry in person may be threatened by it. What the actual personal trainers real interested to hear

Will treating poverty reshape a childs brain?

The Big Story

13:41 min | 3 years ago

Will treating poverty reshape a childs brain?

"What does it mean to grow up for that sounded like a philosophical question? I didn't mean it that way. It's a real. How does a child's life change when they spend their formative years never having enough money living below the poverty line in some cases their family barely making it paycheck to paycheck? What don't those kids do because of that? What hurdles as a place in their path? How does it affect them? Down the road does the impact of poverty literally alter their brains. And if that's the case how can we change that a simple yep. Profound experiment aims to answer that question and perhaps even offer a controversial but effective cure for the damage. That poverty does to a child. What is that cure? While what do you think the cure for poverty is MHM Jordan Heath. Rawlings this is the big story. Shannon proud foot is a writer at Maclean's one of our favorite guests. Hope Shanna I don't either. Why don't you start by kind of level setting for us and in terms of research that has been done? What do we know about children who grow up in poverty? Okay okay so what has been known for years in all kinds of dimensions. Is that kids who grew up in poverty struggle across sort of staunching array of things. You know they tend to be physically smaller smaller. They tend to get sick more often. But for the purposes of this study the ones were most interested in are there's all kinds of of cognitive academic disadvantages. They have so that we know. Oh in very broad global ways. That kids who grew up in poverty tend to do worse in school than kids. Who Grow up more well off They have lower graduation rates. Their grades aren't as good. They have have less likelihood of going on to post secondary. But what was not known until sort of astonishingly recently is why I kinda Kinda came to think of the analogy as as you. You know we knew that that kids who grew up poor would kind of emerge from the woods when they finished childhood different point than richer kids but nobody had thought to look at the path of how they got there. Because there's different ways to have poor academic outcomes right which of their skills were lagging. What was what was going on there? And so one of the principal investigators on this new new study that I've written about Kimberly Noble who works at Columbia University. Her huge splash. She made early in her career. She's a neuroscientist was looking added. Exactly why it is. That kids who grow up poor tend to do more poorly in school and and and cognitively I'm so sh- she sort of unpacked the specific skills the specific regions of the brain the the wise in house of how poverty affects how kids process information and achieve academically later in their lives. And what does she learn so the big takeaway is that Kids who grew up poor tend to lag in language skills like reading and vocabulary and also in sort of what we might think of self restraint skill so the ability to ignore distractions to concentrate working memory that kind of stuff and then subsequently Noble Co authored authored. A big paper in two thousand fifteen. That made a huge splash again. In this area of academic research where they scan the brains of just over a thousand kids and teens and the average sort of the size of their brains they were looking at primarily. What's called the corneal surface area? So this is the the outer wrinkly part of the brain. It does a lot of the heavy lifting cognitively early and when they sort of correlated different different aspects of these kids profiles the one thing they found that was consistently associated with the size as of the coral surface area on the brain was family income so that raises all kinds of interesting questions about what's going on there and not immediately makes the leap to me. It's so compelling because it makes the leap from okay. There are different skills or different strengths. That kids were better off. You know have that kids who are poor. Don't but it's physically. We possibly reshaping their brains or at least associated with a different shape and size to their brains which is quite profound. It's something that you would just never expect to see proven. You might see the results of it but to prove that correlation is quite startling right and so using the word correlation Asian here is important because what Nobles Research and other people who've been working in this area consistently over the last couple of decades has shown is that we know that poverty is associated with all all these negative outcomes. That's correlation what nobody has been able to show is causation. Has What you could do is pull that apart and say okay but is it really. The fact that these kids are poorer that their brains are smaller. They have a harder time with these skills or is it that poor families are more likely to be in a single parent situation or have substance abuse or live in neighborhoods. That are kind of scary very like you just can't and scientifically say that it's the poverty that's causing this. You can only say that the poverty sort of shows us that this is occurring. So that's where this is new unbelievably ambitious but also incredibly simple and elegant study comes in that started about a year ago it will be ongoing for the next several years before we talk about that. Study because we're GONNA spend a lot of time on that. You mentioned that we tend to think and think of and treat the various disadvantageous effects of poverty offers. You know the the school skills that these kids can struggle within. What have we traditionally done to help them? When when those difficulties manifest yes there's sort of different steps along on the way where you could intervene if you start to notice that a child in grade one is struggling in school? And you know. They come from a disadvantaged family background where there's all kinds of ways you can kick in tutoring. You can have them go to special classes for extra support. You can make sure that there's an individual learning plan in place but those things tend to be a really ambitious that costs a lot of money either very time intensive and they happen quite late in the process because research shows that kids you know from from the age of two or even earlier you can already see the effects of poverty so if you're not able to identify the kind of downstream effects the symptoms if you will until they're in school and then try to sort of intervene and turn back the clock. Obviously that's a much much more difficult proposition. If you think about kids growing up in poverty have certain life experiences that appear to affect their brains in certain ways that then affects their learning potential potential. Well depending on where you intervene in that sort of stream of cascading effects it might be a bit easier. What if you could inoculate the kids against that whole all domino effect starting in the first place? It's almost like rather than intervening after someone has fallen ill with the disease in his experiencing symptoms. Would if you gave them a vaccine that prevented I'm from ever getting the disease in the first place. Now I'm certainly. This is just a creative analogy. I'm using calling poverty or its effects a disease but it sort of suggests that if the study study is born out there may be a more elegant more efficient possibly even simpler more effective way to kind of intervene earlier in the process before or the negative effects of already kicked in. And then you're trying to undo them so explain the study now and what it does. What is I guess it's called babies first years. Yeah babies first year so it's hugely ambitious. Seventeen million dollars in public and private funding very heavy hitting academic experts from across the US primarily so they're six principal investigators instigators who are sort of the top in their field at different institutions in different areas of expertise you have neuroscience economics sociology education. Things like that at what they did is they went to Maternity wards in four cities so they picked out New Orleans. Minneapolis Saint Paul New York City and Omaha and they deliberately picked cities cities where they would get kind of a nice cross range of rural versus urban different demographic make-up's and they recruited one thousand mothers within days of having their babies so they recruited created the right from the hospital to enroll in this study and there is effectively again because they're trying to establish causation. There's effectively a placebo group or control group and a treatment group and so all of the MOMS who are enrolled in the study will receive a debit card and every month money will be loaded onto that debit card. So sixty percent of the MOMS will receive. What's called a nominal amount of money? Twenty bucks so enough to be worth their while to stay in the study but not enough to really make a huge difference and that's essentially the placebo where you're giving them money. You're giving giving them a debit card. You're keeping them in the study and keep tabs on them and their kids but the amount of money is not really a difference making amount and forty percent of the MOMS in the study those in the quote unquote treatment in group are going to receive three hundred thirty three dollars a month. So that adds up to four thousand dollars a year which depending on your income bracket may or may not seem like a lot of money but all of the MOMS in this study are at or below the poverty line and so the idea is that because the families the MOMS and kids in this study are randomized into one group or the other? They're it just kinda drawn by a computer. If at the end of the study there are differences between the group that got more money in the group that got less then you can scientifically solidly say that. It's because of the money honey. That is the difference between the two and that would finally allow them to establish causation as opposed to just correlation in terms of poverty and all these negative in outcomes for kids. Well how will the study proceed. And how will they attempt to kind of measure this along the way. They've already started with what they call through to the year. One so what. The idea is that they will check in with the the kids and MOMS around the kids first birthday second birthday. Third Birthday the study is funded up to that point so far but they're now applying for continuous funding and there is is a pretty good precedent of really ambitious. Recall Longitudinal Studies that follow people over time being extended so you can easily imagine that maybe the study won't end when these kids are three. It might follow them until they're five until ten until they're twenty. There's fascinating possibilities there. But they will bring them into the lab and obviously the kids would be turning one to three on a rolling basis because the mom's been recruited all year. They'll do some brain scans of the kids. They'll talk to the moms about sort of how things are for them. On a day to day basis it will take a hair sample of the MOMS which allows them to measure stress through cortisol levels built a video of the moms playing with their kids so that allows them to kind of code for look at the quality of interaction between the parents and the kids and sort of how they're how they're mood is with each other and eventually down the road as the kids get a little older closer to three they will do more. Ambitious brain scans functional. MRI To show them better sort of specifically how the different areas of the brain are working size of the different areas and to really unpack sort of the differences that may emerge because they they don't know the end the research researchers very open about that. We can talk about what they think might happen. But they really don't know and either way the study should come out with a pretty fascinating fascinating robust answer about would if the real problem with an he's problem in quotes but if the real problem with poor families or four families is chess money and what if you just give the money like what if you don't worry about stuff like do. They have enough books in their house. Other kids enrolled in good preschool programs. You know do. The parents have a harmonious oneal relationship. Would have you just give them a chunk of money. Does that change everything a little bit. It's it's kind of has amazing possible implications or the answer might aby. No you know what it doesn't change that much. There is too much stress in the lives of these families. There are too many factors going on that money. Just can't cancel out so either wait you sort of end up with a really interesting answer will not put too fine a point on it but I can imagine that if this study did prove causation. Shen and did prove that look. It's not any of these other things it's just money that would really blow up some of the stigmas that are attached to kids in poverty. Yeah I mean there. There are obvious quite deep political implications here existential implications. You Know People's ideas about why some people have more. Some people have lost their ideas about how we as a society should help people or how much people should bootstrap themselves up. Those are pretty deeply held things right. Those are sort of the maybe the most hot metrics of by which we sort of see political divisiveness right now. So yeah I mean you're not going to convert vert everyone but it's always an interesting thing to have a solid scientific answer. You can point to know. The researchers are very careful to say they're not suggesting this panacea. They're not saying we should get rid of of all these ambitious. You know preschool improvement programs or parenting classes or anything like that and just give us families envelopes of cash. It's more that this is an interesting idea. That's worth testing. That hasn't been tested because there have been decades of testing that have gone on around. You know preschool programs parenting all that other stuff so we should road test this one too and no. It is a useful tool to have in the toolbox but absolutely if the answer comes back that guess what if you give poor families four thousand bucks a year. It improves a bunch which of things by enough to matter. Then that might suggest that maybe the only problem with those Pam families was that they were poor and if you give them a little leg up on the poverty already they can sort of solve all the other stuff themselves. There's also all kinds of other expectations baked into this about how poor people spend money and musicians about finances. And I when I asked I asked Kimberly Noble. Do you get us by people. Like what if the mom spend the money on crappy stuff like what if they make poor decisions in there you know buying liquor Acre cigarettes or whatever and she laughed and said we get that question all the time. It's one of the first things they get us because there's no strings attached to this money but the answer is that that just it doesn't really happen. They did a small pilot. Study to sort of test the feasibility of the debit card thing and out of I think it was eleven hundred transactions. Exactly three occurred at stores that could be considered liquor stores.

Good Times for Planned Parenthood, So It Says

"America's largest purveyor of abortion claims. It had a banner year if that's the case why our tax dollars still flowing planned parenthood the Colson Center. I'm John Stonestreet. This is breakpoint. Few weeks ago planned. Parenthood released an upbeat even triumphant sounding annual report for the two thousand eighteen nineteen fiscal fiscal year. Despite the increase legal and political challenges they face the organization claims to have met those challenges with resolve this kind of spin and his pretty standard fare for annual report. So it should be taken with a large grain of salt. Still prompts and obvious question if planned parenthood's going from strength to strength as it says that is why does it still need our tax payer support. According to the report planned parenthood performed a record three hundred and forty five thousand abortions during the two thousand eighteen nineteen fiscal year. That's approximately forty percent of the approximately eight hundred sixty two thousand abortions performed in the United States in other words the planned parenthood performed a record number of abortions at a time when the overall number of abortions is declining put differently. We might say that planned planned. Parenthood is cornering the abortion market. The report sounds upbeat because business is good in fact it so good that planned. Parenthood could turn down millions of dollars and federal grants rather than comply with new trump administration rules that bar recipients from referring clients to abortion providers with that kind of financial flexibility. Why are American taxpayers still forced to fund the organization to the tune of six hundred seventeen million dollars a year? More to the point. Why was the most recent funding being approved without the slightest consideration? That things could even be different at least part of the answer to those questions. Lie in the pages of the annual report planned. Parenthood claims that it provided nine point eight million services in the last fiscal year. Half of those were what it called Sti Services and treatment the rest birth control information services and breast exams and PAP test. Now this is of course planned parenthood's continual instill bogus that abortions less than four percent of what the organization does on several occasions. Why that number just isn't true? Apparently there's enough elected officials congressional Republicans included that either belief planned parenthood. Don't care enough to learn. The facts. Were just unwilling to risk their political careers to do anything about it. And so the on the spending bill passed and signed into law late last year directed directed five hundred and fifty million dollars in federal funding for planned parenthood in this fiscal year. That's an increase of twenty million over last fiscal year. Her that of course means the impact of the millions of dollars in grants at planned. Parenthood turned down was limited rather than comply with the new rules or employ their famously justly creative accounting. They instead chose to fight the rules in court. They recently lost that fight. And then I circuit the continued federal funding of planned. Parenthood matters for reasons that that transcend just the symbolic or the moral. Nearly forty percent of planned parenthood's revenue that six hundred seventeen million dollars in the last fiscal year comes from government sources. Nearly ninety percent of that amount comes from the federal government alone which means planned parenthood's quite vulnerable despite the upbeat annual report if that Federal Spigot of funds were just turned off or even just turned down. He'd be in big trouble in fact we should be asking why it hasn't been already. We can't blame what's happened or more accurately what hasn't happened just on those in the courts and legislatures without also pointing to what's happened or more accurately what hasn't happened in the Public Square. See legislatures were only de-fund abortion providers like planned parenthood. If Americans make it clear lear. They view abortion something that they absolutely will not pay for and that will only happen if we can continue and compellingly make the case for for life. If we fail to do that then we can only expect more upbeat annual reports from planned parenthood. Which is America's unquestioned leader of abortion

The new Staples delivers solutions to help your team be more connected productive, and inspired. Learn more at Staples dot com slash change. From wondering, I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily on this Thursday, June thirteenth, it's a question. We've been asking for years. What does it take for a bookseller to survive in the age of Amazon, and we may soon have an answer Barnes and noble? The beleaguered bookstore chain is up for sale last Friday at announced that it had struck a deal to be acquired by the owner of the UK bookstore chain Waterstones for about six hundred eighty three million dollars more than two hundred million dollars of that value is the assumption of Barnes and noble debt. It turns out, though, that the brick and mortar book business may be more desirable than most investors assumed on Tuesday. The Wall Street Journal reported that Barnes, and noble may have another suitor a book distributor called reader link, the journal reported that reader link may bid higher than its rival Waterstones owner, Elliott management corporation, a hedge fund, reader link could. That bid as early as today or tomorrow because Barnes and noble would face a penalty for ditching its deal with Elliot, it would have to pay the hedge fund four million dollars. If it pulls out by Friday after June thirteenth, however, that break-up penalty would climb to more than seventeen million dollars though, not a household name almost every book lover in the country has been touched by Chicago based reader link. It is the nation's biggest distributor of books to mass market change like target, WalMart and Costco, since its beginning with a single bookstore in New York in nineteen seventy-one Barnes and noble grew by offering a high volume of books and undercutting the prices independent stores could offer Amazon's growth made that strategy, largely obsolete and the company faced many management challenges as well today, it is squeezed on one side by Amazon, which reportedly sells fifty percent of all new books and independent bookstores which are growing after closing many stores. Recent years at now has just six hundred twenty seven locations nationwide publishers, and literary agents which still rely heavily on the existence of Barnes and noble appeared to breathe a sigh of relief. At the news of the Elliott sale last year. The hedge fund bought Waterstones the UK's biggest bookseller Waterstones had been losing money for years under new ownership. It's now turning a profit if the Elliott deal goes through Waterstone's, CEO, James daunt would also run Barnes and noble. The hedge fund announced the Daunte would plan to turn the American chain around by allowing individual bookstores more autonomy to serve their communities. Making Barnes and noble run more like a large collection of independent bookstores, no word on what reader links strategy would be yet. But already this story's turning into a real page Turner.

Braves, Atlanta And Kuna discussed on The MLB Show

"The kunia, obviously, wonderful young Braves player. He's just won the rookie of the year award. He's going to be a cornerstone of the Braves franchise for years to come in today. It came out that he's going to be a cornerstone for even longer than that because he signed well, I guess a seven year extension. It's being reported as eight years, even though the first is the twenty nine thousand nine season with two club options on the end. And even if both of those club options are exercised this will amount to just one hundred twenty. Four million dollars for almost the next decade of a kunia, which seems like the biggest swindle steal, whatever. Synonym? You wanna use to show that basically kunia is going to be incredibly underpaid for the next decade Ivan seat like you, usually don't see people get absolutely destroyed in Atlanta like this and less the federal grand armies involved. I was I went into this with an open mind because so far from free agencies. I mean, he's frankly, so far from arbitration that you wouldn't you can't like look at the I mean, it's essentially seven year one hundred million dollar deal. You can't look at that. And think, wow, you know, he's only making what is at thirteen million dollars a year fourteen million. And and judge that against free agent salaries. But then you look at the like the two extension deal or to extension years or or seventeen million dollars each like what like if he's going to be worth going to be worth exercising? Those options. In his thirties. Like one old be the going rate for a superstar by that point. I can't I dunno. It's it just seems. I you call it a swindle. I think that's that's not a bad way to describe it. I mean, the Braves just completely put one over on him and Kuna, I think it's important to note is in this position because he was not a super highly touted prospect when he signed at Venezuela with Atlanta as a youngster he wasn't one of those guys who made, you know, five million dollars on the free agent market. I think it was watch us one hundred thousand hundred thousand he made and he was held down by Atlanta for the first month last year. So he's going to hit free agency a year later than he otherwise would have he's making the league minimum this year next year. So he's not really going to have the chance at getting paid for a few years anyway. So you can sort of understand why he would want to lock up the security because if he suffers a career threatening injury tomorrow, then he's. Not going to have the sort of financial security to fall back on that players who came from more means will have.
