The updated draft now calls for two six, hundred, fifty foot, wide surge gates and the army. Corps of Engineers says, the latest changes to the gate system will have less of an impact on water flow between the the Gulf but Bob Stokes with the Galveston Bay Foundation says it would still reduce water flow by ten percent. and. That could affect the ecosystem. We'd have this incredibly healthy bay because it gets a lot of circulation. We have a lot of runoff that comes from the Houston area.

The $20 billion missing from this economy

"Los Angeles I'm Carl Rozelle Thursday I believe the twenty second of October has always to have you along everybody. We're going to start today with a story about something in this economy that is not there that isn't happening and what that means. We're going to set it up by noting that seven hundred, Eighty, seven, thousand people lost their jobs last week and made first time claims for unemployment benefits less than the week. Prior, it should be said, and also that the Labor Department adjusted downward is numbers for the previous couple of weeks. And that's good. It really is but the number of people on government assistance because they have lost their jobs is still stratospheric. Lee High millions of them are running out of benefits and as you know, those extra six, hundred dollars a week went away in August. And that to get back to the thing that's missing is sucking billions of dollars out of this economy compared to earlier in the pandemic how many billions? Marketplace's Mitchell Hartman gets the lead story today. The answer is. Twenty billion dollars a week. That's how much is not getting into out of work Americans, pockets since a bunch of federal assistance programs for the unemployed started running out in midsummer Andrew Statler at the Century Foundation says based on Treasury data, they were getting twenty six, billion a week that as come crashing down to just six billion dollars, it's much less support to. Families and to the economy than we had six hundred a week in federal pandemic payments expired at the end of July the President's partial replacement program ran out of money last month also folks laid off back in March and April are now running out of their twenty six weeks of state jobless benefits some but not all are getting a thirteen week federal extension. Unemployment benefits now average three twenty a week across the country. It's even less for gig workers on pandemic on employment assistance and that has made a huge dent in the purchasing power of households suffering unemployment says Mark Hamrick. Dot Com, they are really having to scrape to get by these days just for basic needs such as pay for shelter, pay the bills to put food on the table and forget about luxuries. That's exactly what Brooke Wetzel has seen play out in her florist business in La when the economy started to open up late spring sales picked up but since August things have gotten pretty slow people might have that you know extra fifty to seventy five dollars per fire arrangement.

Latest News - Surveillance Technology Oversight Project

"Monday. This fall we're taking a look at education and technology during the pandemic. We've mostly talked about remote school today we're GonNa talk about how schools and districts are using tech to try to monitor students health in the classroom. Even before the pandemic, some schools had used things like facial recognition to monitor students. Now, they're adding qr codes, thermal cameras, and spending potentially hundreds of millions of dollars in the process Albert Foxconn is the. Executive, Director of the nonprofit surveillance technology oversight project and he is skeptical yet. It's really like a bad episode of Black Mirror. We see students being tracked with everything from Bluetooth proximity technology to WI FI based systems. We see facial recognition being used as a covid response. We also see thermal imaging and these technologies are all invasive their hall expensive. But what they don't have is evidence that they actually work in this sort of categories. Of things that you mentioned, how useful are they I mean basically, most of these technologies have about as much evidence behind them as their nose had. So let's take. For example, the wide area thermal imaging. We all know that holding an infrared thermometer close to someone can give you a fairly accurate temperature reading, but it's completely different when you're trying to use a single camera to take the temperature of everyone in a single room and. You're using facial recognition to try to find where people's faces are because when you're using these sorts of systems you have to use artificial intelligence. So even knows where the person is in the photo, and then to use that to try to identify who has a fever and none of this technology has been approved by the FDA none of it's been overseen by regulators, and all of it is being rolled out without that sort of vision. Do, we also have a sense of how much money schools and by extension tax payers in many cases are spending on. This kind of technology will according to dragonfly a military drone creator turned a covid health detection company. They claim that next year, the thermal imaging marketplace's going to double in size to five point six, billion dollars worldwide, and really we have no idea how much money has already been spent by local school boards and you individual school districts all across the country. I understand a lot of tech companies that are now selling this technology did used to work in security surveillance and just kind of switched over yet. When you sell surveillance hammers, you know every issue you see is a nail that needs even more tracking even more invasive technology. See companies that were marketing their as a way to prevent school shootings. There is no evidence that actually work but they got lots of school districts to buy these tracking systems claiming that it would help first responders deal with these heartbreaking mass shootings but as soon as kofoed was in the news and they saw that school districts were more interested in spending money on public health and on mass shootings, they suddenly started selling the exact same technology to try. To prevent the spread of covid nineteen, they are not looking for a solution I'm building tech in response they have technology and they're trying to find ways to make us believe that it's the solution to our problems, and then how about the data that's being collected by this equipment I mean, we know that kids already have fewer rights probably in school than they would elsewhere are there any laws that keep the data that's collected by this equipment from being shared? Contact tracing privacy is really in a dangerous state today. Currently, there's almost no protection against law enforcement or even ice coming in and getting this sort of contact tracing data federal law doesn't really apply most state laws don't apply, and that's why we've been fighting here in New York to pass legislation that would actually say that police can't weaponize information and make it another part of the school to prison pipeline. But unfortunately, even months after the bills were passed, we're still waiting on governor Andrew Cuomo to actually sign them into law. You know in a weird way it seems like schools are in this position. Obviously, these companies see a business opportunity schools are in this position because of in some ways, a lack of alternative right? Like have they been put in a position where they sort of have to implement some kind of health security theater because otherwise they feel that there's no alternative to make parents feel safe about sending kids back to school. My heart goes out to the school officials who are trying to pick between impossible options you have obviously. Problems with online education and you know with the restart of in person instruction, you have such a potent threat to public health, and so I think they're grasping at anything that will give them. You know some sense of safety in part because they genuinely want to keep their kids safe and in part because the amount of litigation will see after this crisis is over is really going to be unprecedented I. Mean we're going to see so many Americans who get sick some who die who then are you know rightfully enraged that is made by school officials put them at Risk Albert Foxconn is the Executive Director of the nonprofit surveillance technology oversight project.

It's not immediately clear whether the talks will bear fruit or whether Democratic leaders would use the bill to provide. Political cover for moderate. House. Democrats who've grown increasingly anxious over Congress's inaction on pandemic relief MNUCHIN has said his priorities in a new round of spending would be eight for small businesses and children. He's also talked about providing more assistance to the airline industry and approving another round of stimulus checks. There are some overlap in the White House is goals with things Democrats included in their new draft bill. The bill would fund a range of programs including many that Republicans have supported in recent months. For example, it would extend the paycheck protection program and provide one hundred, eighty, two billion dollars for K. The biggest budget item in the new package would be four, hundred, thirty, six, billion dollars in aid to states, cities in territorial and tribal governments that have experienced. Major budget crunches this year. The bill also would support an assortment of other programs including seventy, five billion for coronavirus testing and contact tracing. But my colleague Erika Werner reports that several Senate Republicans oppose spending any more money at all and it's unclear how that dynamic coupled with the Senate's focused on filling the Supreme Court, vacancy could affect the chances for any kind of deal.

The Positives and Negatives of Investing Your Money in gold

The Positives and Negatives of Investing Your Money in gold

"The positives and negatives of investing your money in gold by Robert Farrington of the college investor Dot Com. Do you remember all the hype around gold in the not. So distant past from two thousand, seven to two thousand eleven. The value of an ounce of gold went from about five hundred dollars to eighteen hundred dollars. If you would have purchased gold in two, thousand seven, you would have nearly quadrupled your investment in just five years. Now, that is one heck of an investment. Around this time I also pronounced that you shouldn't buy gold and it received a lot of criticism in more recent years. Gold has settled back down to around thirteen hundred dollars and sometimes slightly less than that. So hopefully, you took my advice, but the question still remains in the back of people's minds. Would it be wise to invest in gold right now? At, its current price gold is worth five hundred dollars less than its previous high. So one would think that an increase in value could be on the horizon. Here's what you really need to know about the pros and cons of investing in gold. Pros of investing in gold. In my opinion, there are three major pros when it comes to gold investment one, it's equality hedge against a down market to it will still have value of paper currency inflates and three. There is an apparent upside to its value versus years. One Gold is a quality hedge against a down market. As we all saw in two thousand seven when the stock market took a dive everyone began putting their faith in gold instead with the higher demand in gold and with a limited supply. The price of gold went up massively within the next couple of years we may witness another steep downmarket, which may again increase the value of gold. Two Gold we'll still have. Value Paper currency inflates. Local currencies constantly fluctuate against foreign currencies. It's the way of the world policies are in place to hold currency steady, but they're not always foolproof once a currency begins to make a downward spiral it can be very difficult to stop severe inflation, which of course, decreases our purchasing power. Is often the more solid option for currency since there's a finite amount of this precious metal if you have gold, then you're likely to hold on to more of your overall worth than someone that is put all of their faith in the banks and paper currency. Three, there is an apparent upside to the value of gold. As I stated before gold was once at eighteen hundred dollars but now rests at value of less than thirteen hundred. If there's a slight blip in our economy that sends fear through the nation, then gold could easily spike back to eighteen hundred mark. It no longer seems far fetched because after all the value has already been there before. Cons of investing in gold. I used to be a huge advocate of gold and silver investing but my opinions on this investment technique have changed largely because of these cons. One Gold has a terrible historical return. If you went back two hundred years and put ten thousand dollars in gold ten, thousand in bonds and ten thousand stocks, which of these investments would come out on top. Well, if you're smart, you would probably not choose gold to be the top investment but the astonishing part about this is how poorly it actually performed versus the stocks and bonds. Here are the values of your investments after two hundred. Years. Old Twenty six thousand dollars bonds eight million dollars stocks five point six, billion dollars. Based on the historical returns gold is a lousy investment. To Gold is worthless if things get really bad. As a pro, we stated that gold is a great hedge against the dollar inflating, which causes us to lose our purchasing power. This is true. But what if the currency becomes absolutely worthless and we all have to resort to trading goods to survive what value is gold at that point? Well, let's see me certainly can't eat gold. So it is of little value for that purpose and you really can't make anything easily out of gold either. So there really isn't any value they're pretty much at this point your gold nuggets in bars are only as valuable as Iraq because he might be able to throw it at something and kill it. Three gold only earns you money when you sell it. The biggest con of investing in gold in my opinion. Oh and Warren Buffett's is that it produces you absolutely nothing when you own it. If you want to grow truly wealthy than you want to buy an asset that produces a passive income while you own it so that you can then by other assets that make you even more wealthy. Warren started doing this as a boy. When he bought a hunk of land, he knew the land would increase in value but the truly great part is investment was that he could earn an income each year from the local farmer that wanted to rent his land after a few years of Rental Income Warren Kundun reinvest his money into even more land and do this over and over again, this method allowed him to buy assets that gained in value, but also gave him income while he owned them.

"Like any INFO Technology Sector security has plenty of indexes flooding around or get. Indexes collided by vendors and people trying to sell things to us I thought this for Senate index was. Useful because it doesn't come from I accompany product. It say independent academic attempt to benchmark Com, sub security capability and intent from nation sites It appealed to make per couple of reasons may not have had A to do with Bill Center in the past spend a little bit of Thanh. Talking to their academics in previous roles and particularly locked the way that This report sets metrics that up designed to objectively major subsidy maturity in nations So it says what are the kind of things that we could judge the intent of a nation in the obscurity spice and one of the kind of things that we could use to objectively major capability. And it tells an interesting story in Australia Australia's categorized in the higher intent, low capability quadrant and the reason for that is because when the the objective metrics this reporter applied to the statements made by by government ministers by government departments, entities about what our intent is. Assab security spice. Where about the most ambitious nation in the world for ask security attend? But. Then when you look at what our actual capabilities against that intent on again measured in a series of objective metrics. We fold anti sixteenth in that space. So, FA May that told a pretty familiar story because this over promising on delivering stories. One that I think is familiar to a lot of. People in the Strand security sector. In the context of these trying government's actions since the twenty six, Day sub, security strategy. A lot of announcement to be my bet when you follow up way those announcements. In the years after that have been made you say less deleted then was announced to the media. Will what's on the industry? Kodak in the two thousand, sixteen strategy that was undefended at least out of the Prime Minister's office. This one is looking out at a ten years. The two thousand twenty strategy is looking at at the ten year timeframe. And proposing one point six, billion, dollar funding. Backdrop, but a lot of that is going into law enforcement and as you say might be into that capability. What's your take on the strategy itself? Overall as you say, it's it's another announcement is on the strategy whether it's not as another thing but certainly yet your thoughts on the strategy itself and where maybe else we could have been in twenty twenty from the twenty six danes strategies. Have you have you seen that the two thousand twenty strategy's building on the twenty, sixteen or? Taking a completely new direction. While the that, you can certainly say the why the two thousand twenty strategy is reaction to experience the twenty six strategy That the twenty sixteen subsequently strategy had a very large number of of objectives and Nisha announced under it. I think the government found the experience of trying to implement those very large number projected initiatives again, adopted under outcome Tambo's prime ministership around the breathing bruising exercise because the twenty twenty strategy dramatically rationalize is temptation I'm say that the broad spread of of initiatives and objectives under the strategy a kind of a toddler. Your decide that the Gospel confessed about ninety percent of the funding. Associated with these twenty twenty strategy he's allocated to security agencies So it goes into building. Capabilities with particularly the is day but also other security agencies on. Enforcement agencies like the the I pay, and that's well and good We have I think outstanding internationally recognized capabilities within is. and this is the conduct that you have to keep investing in order to. Maintain those capabilities in my time that that international ranking. Suppose big Criticism that that libraries had is one that we've been exploring for at the loss twelve months and that's really When you look at security policy to strike the problem is the ability to project those capabilities out of the silos of how defense and security agencies. To the problems in Australia Com in terms of lifting a bench, mock the baseline up security security. Brazil and Sada resilience across the Australian government trying economy You know there's a lot of examples of that. Wall is day is absolutely world standard.

That's the mind numbing minutiae of organizing how things get done keeping track of work communicating about it an answering email about who's doing what when Asana claims that knowledge workers spend a full sixty percent of their time performing work about work rather than actually getting things done. It's an Rosenstein started. Asana. With the intention to fix that nagging problem by the way Rosensteins name sounds familiar. He's known as the guy who invented facebook's like button.

Hey, Remember the Olympics?

"For many sports, the Olympics is the apex of what they can achieve as athletes, and it's a chance for the world to see incredible incredible athletes out there on the world stage. My name is Julius boy, cough and I. Teach Political Science at Pacific University, Oregon. Professor boy cough has written four books about the Olympics and as it turns out. He's also a former member of the US men's Olympic soccer team. and. That is really why the Olympics have stuck around and Ben so successful. Were it not for the athletes? We wouldn't really have the Olympic Games of course the money shuffle has become a big part of that. We can talk about that later, but for athletes in lesser known sports, sake curling in the Winter Olympics or maybe equestrian or something like that in the Summer Olympics, this is their one chance to make big. Now I think we have to remember that. The Olympics the Olympic Games themselves are a value or ideal driven event. I'm Katherine Moon and I am a professor of political. Science at Wellesley College I study issues related to eastasia particularly the Koreas and I love to talk about culture and values in international politics. As much as we say, it is about pure athleticism and fairer competition. It really was an is about ideals, human, being the human spirit to strive for excellence, and to do once best, and to be proud to be wist others who are excellent in their fields. And I think that's what drives people to go to the Olympics and to watch the Olympics. It's changed my life completely. Cultures and values together. Research big. So. It's July and we were supposed to start watching the summer Olympics in about a week, so what the heck happened! Yeah. The Olympics got corona virus and. They had to push back for a year. When you look back at that moment, there were calls to cancel the Olympics. There were calls to postpone the Olympics and the members of the International Olympic Committee seemed determined to press ahead with the games this at a time when other sports were shutting down, world soccer was shutting down various sports leagues around the world, and yet the International Olympic Committee felt like they needed to press ahead and the real reason why the. International Olympic Committee finally acted was because Canada basically said they were going to do a de facto boycott. If the Games were held in twenty twenty, they were soon followed by. The National Olympic Committees from Australia Portugal Germany, and when that all happened the International Olympic Committee had no choice but to postpone, and that's exactly what they did so now. They're slated for July twenty twenty one. To move has finally been confirmed. The signs are all over Tokyo symbols of what was supposed to be the Japanese revival. A comeback crushed at least for now. We're talking about it. Doesn't it seven years in the making millions of dollars. Two hundred countries at eleven thousand athletes. You can't just pick another date on the calendar. The Olympic Games have only been canceled three times. The first time was in nineteen sixteen during World War One. The second and third time we're in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty and nineteen, forty, four, due to World War Two. It's still unclear whether the twenty twenty games will become forth historic cancellation. The current plan is to begin them on July Twenty Fourth Two thousand twenty one. But. Many experts are skeptical of this time line, arguing that there is no guarantee that the corona virus will be fully under control in a year. Still the struggle to preserve the twenty twenty games shows just how invested host countries become an success. What's at stake for Japan as the situation plays out. Well Japan has plunged a lot of money and prestige and human capital into making the Games happen if we think back to when they were originally bidding on the Olympics, they said that the entire escapade would cost seven point three billion dollars, but by the time this summer rolled around, they had spent some twenty eight billion dollars, according to an audit by the Japanese government, and so that's four times what they had originally planned postponing means adding anywhere from two to six billion dollars. Those are the best guesses that we have now. So what's at stake for Japan is they've already spent way more money than they expected and now they might not even get the Olympics to actually

Who really killed Blockbuster Video?

"I'm Peter Kafka and I'm Ronnie. Mola and this is landed the giants. The net flicks effect a podcast on Netflix's disrupted. Hollywood change the way we watch TV and movies. And how it should have been squashed by giant competitor, but ended up turning the tables and killing the video store. Okay Peter. Let's go back in time long. Before we had netflixing chill, we had blockbuster nights. Remember this tonight. Make a blockbuster. In the nineties and early outs, blockbuster was the world's largest video rental chain. It was a huge part of American culture at its peak, it was bringing in six billion dollars a year in revenue and had more than nine thousand stores around the globe. It was the place to rent movies it was. Social place like teens would meet their. You know people you know because that was one of the few things that you could always do as a high school student. Was You know you could get together with your friends and rent a movie and go to the cool, parents, house, and watch it where there's a copy of the wiz that I would like hide in a corner at blockbuster because I always wanted to be there when I come back for, and we would go in there her car then go into blockbuster and pick out a movie, and then we get a little treat you know I don't know. We pick two to three movies scary WanNa funny one and then in action. Nobody has the movie I want I. Even Video Blockbuster probably hasn't I mean? We have over ten thousand videos? Five six o'clock on a Friday night. Phones are ringing off the hook. It's never what do you have? That's good. It's always what you have. That's new that last voices Jason Bailey nowadays. He writes about movies for places like vulture in the New York Times, but years ago, he used to work at a bunch of video stores, including blockbuster, which he says wasn't as great as we might remember. I have much more nostalgic for the video store. Then I do for blockbuster in particular which really in a lot of ways. Ways killed the video store, flattening it into the sort of McDonald's version of the video store, right? That's what I remember about. Blockbuster killed my local video store replaced with blockbuster, which I did not like blockbusters were everywhere, and everyone rented from there, but that didn't mean it was a great customer experience, one of the big things that you always hear people who who don't remember blockbuster through a Golden Glove nostalgia talk about where the late fees or as they tried to rebrand them additional day fees or additional rental fees. They were outrageous. Boxer made a ton of money on late visas or additional day fees running. At one point late fees made up seventy percent of blockbuster prophet, and along with this highly fees, there are a long list of other problems limited new releases, long lines, shitty customer service all which is lousy for customers, which also made it lousy for employees. I got cursed out a fair amount. Again for you know just doing what I was told to do by corporate, but yes I would, I would be told that you know that. We were monsters that we were bloodsuckers. I had that thing back on time I saw you. You take it out of the box I was like I got called out like that I had people tell me I saw you in here when I dropped it off. You tell me you didn't check it in on time. I'm not paying that if it got heated, but this is all factored into blockbusters business model. The company even had a term for it managed. Dissatisfaction managed to satisfaction is a term that John Antioch. Oh the CEO Blockbuster explained to me, and that is is long as you give a consumer and. And of what they want. They will ignore the fact that they're not always getting what they want. This is unique heating. She's a journalist who covered enough for Reuters she also wrote a book and made a documentary about Netflix's history blockbuster understood that only twenty percent of customers who came in would get the movie that they wanted, and they would have to get something else the other eighty percent of the time. They weren't happy, but they weren't horribly angry. Managed dissatisfaction is one of the great corporate euphemisms for screw you give. Give us your money. You are ever going to hear and if you can't remember what it was like to go to. Blockbuster occurred analogy. Be Like an airplane. You WanNa. Airplanes are like it sucks every way, and if you want to improve it in any way, you have to pay additional fees for everything that is blockbuster in a nutshell in the nineties, yeah, customers felt trapped, and with all the smaller mom and pop stores being squeezed out. They didn't really have a better alternative, and then all of a sudden they did. Again you've gotta remember. That netflix emerged in the late nineties when the Internet still felt pretty new. Amazon was just becoming release accessible selling books online. They're doing it cheaper than the competition and they didn't have to operate stores, so Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph to tech guys in the bay area are surveying the landscape and they thought hey, we could be the Amazon of something else. There's a better way to rent movies as many as you want. Go to Netflix DOT COM. COM Bake a list of the movies you want to see and about one business day you'll get three. DVD's kept him as long as you want. Without late fees DVD's had just come out. And suddenly there was this new way to watch movies that didn't involve these bulky VHS tapes. DVD's were smaller, more durable, and you could ship them for price of a postage stamp. So? Hastings Randolph thought. Hey, we could be them on of movies. This may seem obvious now, but at the time this was a big deal. Suddenly instead of having to go to the store and deal the crummy customer experience, he could stay home. You can hit a button and someone somewhere sent you the dvd you wanted instead of the one you had to settle. for which Netflix customers loved by the way they tended to order? The kind of movies at blockbuster didn't feature or even carry it all they had all the indie movies and older movies and blockbuster was focused on what was new.

Bobby and Billy Dukes from Taste of Country

"Welcome to episode two forty nine, where at the end of this? Eddie Mighty and I will review the movie wall card. The Dewey Cox Story. It's an old movie, but it's a music movie. I never thought it'd be funny, so if you haven't seen the movie, you still might light. Listen to the review. Is We're we're kind of down? But if you haven't seen it and you WANNA watch, maybe go watch it. Then come back to the end of this podcast, but we're GONNA put it at the end. In case, there are spoilers to right Mike. Yeah a little bit. But that's not a movie doesn't matter if it's spoiled, it's not like some crazy indy. There's nothing you can really spoil it. Yeah, so check that out. CHECK THE MOVIE I! Also talked to Billy Dukes, coming out from taste of country on the top ten hottest artist, a twenty twenty kind of go through that bill, smart guy like him had a Montauk about that music headlines of the week. Live nation is trying to get artists to take pay cuts for concerts and festivals next year in a memo obtained by rolling stone live, nation sites, unprecedented times and quote the exponential release. Excuse me the exponential rise of certain costs as reasons for adjusting payment policies. That's interesting because they're going to have to pay a lot more. To make the make, sure things are safe and clean, yeah. Then they thought they would. Let me read more about this. Most of the new policies shift to financial burdens to the artist's. For example, the company wants to decrease the monetary guarantees promised to artists before and a bit twenty percent across the board. Live nation also says that if a concert is canceled due to poor ticket sales, it will give the artist twenty five percent of the guarantee. Well that's interesting. And I think I'll speak on this as also a performer I work with these promotion companies promoters all different ones I. think as long as books are shown. People can make wise decisions about business are doing together, and it's not that I don't trust live nation or an artist, but I would like to see if I'm someone that's has agreed to a tour or agreed to three or four shows even show I wanna see those costs, and why am I? GonNa take. Mine Down Twenty percent. The twenty five percent on the on the cancellation is great for an artist. Also, there's still get paid even if they don't sell tickets because people don't WanNa come. Twenty. They're guaranteed twenty bucks. They, probably a lower act would be guaranteed about ten to fifteen thousand. Unless it's a baby act on big tour there about five, five, thousand, seventy, five hundred. Lower. Ten to big acts are. Hundreds of thousands of dollars a night. So you're talking about. That's a nice little little. Give there. But that's interesting I never thought about the fact that it's going to cost more to put on shows. So I think as long as they show their books a little bit I don't know why artist would say no to that true. because. Everybody's GonNa lose some money here. Everybody, and no party, promoter or artist. Should benefit, and the other should suffer. You should kind of all being this together in a way. Interesting I didn't think about that some more. Maybe do a whole podcast on that that'd be the most boring podcasts ever open a book. Now the whole country is protesting. Rage against the machine is actually back on the charts. The band's self titled Debut. Album landed back on the billboard. It reached number eight on the I tunes top album charts as well. Yeah, do we have any rage I both them up? This is right in my gut from back in. High. School more so than college. I guess it was like ninth and tenth grade. I would have. Someone sent me a tape of the edge in Dallas. They'd hit record play and take an hour and the. An hour and I get a lot of rage and that. Was a big rage guy, but I didn't really know why I. Just like the sound I didn't really know. What they were protesting at the time by the time I started to know I started to get older and getting college, and they started to fall off a little bit. Do their own things. But now look back. Pretty cool. This is one of my favorites. What else do you have all right, so? We're limited in the range music. A CON has secured a six billion dollar contract to build a con city. A futuristic cryptocurrency theme city in Senegal. Along with having homes, malls and a power plant, a city all amenities. The city needs including schools in a police station pretty baller. Some people have buildings. Here's a whole city. Alex Super Futuristic. Does this ever actually happen. Though I don't know the guy who did smack that now has a city and see the king because he just. There's King Oh. Yeah, what because if he's not? He's still. The city is named after. And then if he does something really bad and his older life like commits a bad crime. That's a change the name of it because they don't want the name the city after so like you're not seeing any bill. cosby elementary schools still remaining in play. Now that he would do that, but I'm saying. You know. Commits. Fraud. Martha Stewart style. Do. You have to change the name of the city. Finally Dashboard confessional singer Chris. CARRABBA suffered severe injuries in a motorcycle accident. Luckily they weren't life threatening, and he expects to make a full recovery as watching the video of him in the hospital bed. You see it yet. Sad lookin'. Yeah, it looks pretty terrible. Motorcycles. Just never had the need to Yana on motorcycle. He's motorcycle guy though he looks cool riding motorcycle.

"News comments and insights from epinions worldwide team of editors and columnists I'm Jim also coming up on the show white anti trust problems are just the start for big ten plus how taxing robots is a great way to make people for but first the defense department recently sent lawmakers a list of about three point six billion dollars in military construction projects that would be deferred to pay for president trump's wall Bloomberg opinions editorial board writes that quote the diversion of Pentagon construction money defies Congress and hurts military readiness while accomplishing nothing opinion editor James give the is here to tell us why so we've learned that part of the money for the president's wall is coming from the military what projects is it coming from well coming from about one billion dollars worth of different projects there's three point six billion dollars military construction projects that comes on top of about six hundred million the ministration is taken from the treasury department's forfeiture funds and another two point five billion dollars in Pentagon funding from other areas and it's coming from everything from you know rebuilding storage bunkers for ammunition and extending runways and updating the infrastructure for the militia minute man three ballistic missile in a training and equipping the Afghan security forces dismantling chemical weapons there's a whole range of things and it's got a lot of people up in arms reason James who decided where the money would come from specifically I think the Pentagon put together a list based on what he had planned and what he thought it could do for her or not two they are asking Congress to back fill and we fund these things and Congress is unlikely to do that in fact some of the Democrats in Congress have already said that they're going to fight this tooth and nail both because they think it's bad for the nation's defense and also because it takes power away from Congress that was granted to it by the constitution isn't this battle already in the courts it has been in the courts and at what happened is that the courts have said that trump has a right to reprogram money but it's not clear whether or not to the ministration can be able to do what it wants with all the money that it's trying to take because here you have a situation where the president went to Congress for the wall and Congress said no except for this amount and so he's going around them so the argument is being made that he is going around Congress is specific powers right and. and and what could be done is is the waves abled and run this was by declaring a national emergency in February that the situation the borders natural national emergency and and that's the rationalization for his ability redirect fun. so Congress is going to have to Congress can step in and say look we're gonna pass a law that says you cannot use any of the funds that we want to prepare for the Pentagon. these purposes and that could be have a kind of close the door on this thing happen in the future in the future but there's nothing to to have that retroactive right well it may be that the Pentagon starts singing a different tune when they realize that Congress is not going to back fill a lot of these requests that they're going to have to be deferred I think the important thing to remember is that. what trump is building a is not going to solve the problems that he wants to solve it for example you look at what's happened to border with the asylum seekers the sound figures are trying to sneak in there try to present themselves. be considered for silent hill walls not gonna do anything there. with the effort to stop drugs from poor infinite stakes Sentinel is not being modeled over the walls being smuggled. the postal system into ports of entry is any part of this. a danger to military readiness or national security or is it just up keep that we're talking about that's being diverted. well I think it is a danger that if you're doing things like. you know diminishing the reading is of of the Minuteman three ballistic missile system if you were you discomfiting allies because basically what you're doing is you're taking money that that they were counting on to build their deterrence. in Europe for example. resident is going to take away about seven million dollars in money that was allocated to upgrade US and NATO bases in Europe in part to deter Russia after takeover of Crimea so you know there's both the immediate impact on the ability of US forces to do their job and then there's the impact on relations with allies and elsewhere I think in both cases it's it's not good for the nation's defense he wants to have a physical barrier he wants a Berrier covering as much as two thousand mile border. he can and you know when all is said and done I think that's just going to be an expensive monument to yell intolerance and not effective in protecting the border from the country challenges the border faces thanks James that's James give me an editor.

"The past six to twelve months kind of prior to that we were still the community was still trying to understand how to issue new cryptos and what the process looks like but there's been over six billion dollars worth of ico activity today so there's significant of a new capital being raised through this process some of that super exciting really interesting there's a lot of very innovative creative companies in new projects that have come into existence by leveraging blockchain for capital formation but there's also some not so great stuff out out there there there's there's certainly bad actors and criminals that are using this technology and who have hijacked blockchain to use it for nefarious purposes in who are leading people astray so for us that makes our job a lot harder room we're talking to different regulators like the securities and exchange commission when there's examples of criminals using the technology and we responsibly need to be able to address that so we just saw this as a huge priority and it's it's really just taken so much time and energy out of the the crypto ecosystem that we formed a new initiative called the token alliance that were sponsoring at the chamber and we watched it last year with one hundred eighty contributors we've grown that into today we have three hundred and fifty two contributors and we are writing best practices for tokens so the big question is is is a token of security or not or what kind of token is a security or not i wanted the securities lies come in when you're doing a new crypto currency or a new togan and those are really big questions are very complicated questions to answer that also vary by jurisdiction and because of the technology is so young and so nascent we really don't want to see as public policy being made in response to elicit activity that's done hastily are without new sophisticated conversations and dialogue should really put together the best policy for this technology so we think the best way to really address the regulation of blockchain enough tokens would be to i let the industry do that through through selfregulation or through voluntary voluntarily voluntary best practices so that's what.

"The latest version gifts families earning less than thirty thousand dollars a year a tax increase altogether six billion dollars spread out among taxpayers while millionaires and billionaires get a twenty eight billion dollar tax time that's what the joint committee on taxation has given us in terms of numbers so every day this bill gets work time it gets worse and worse for middle income and working class people so let me just ask a question regarding the uh the child tax credit and by the way hey i should say that the personal exemption is eliminated in this bill so that our if you have more than one child you're going to be penalized if you are a family of our two children three children for children that person exemption is gone which means you start in a whole but the trial test cut it to me is another example of how this is skewed to the top in trickle down economics the current tax child tax credit mr barr holed is a thousand dollars cracked or that's correction and the new version is 2000 correct correct which sounds good how much of that is refundable uh under the chairman's modified mark one thousand dollars are rains refundable and that's index which is a jal change an increase but if you're a working family the mom that was just talked about you won't benefit from that increase but you know who benefits from that increase fake they raise the cap on the income of the households that can benefit from the child tax credit five times higher fivetimes five times on five hundred thousand dollars so the working mom who now under this analysis i earning less than thirty thousand dollars may see a tax increase may have more difficulty the getting health insurance but she's not going to benefit from this child tax credit any more than she does not maybe a tiny bit because of the indexing but the folks that will benefit is somebody making a half a million dollars so every piece of this bill unfortunately in the fine print goes back to the same thing it is skewed to the wealthy and the wellconnected and its trickledown economics which has never worked just ask the folks in the state.
