Cryptocurrency Heist Hacker Returns Stolen Funds

"Hackers pulled off one of the largest crypto highs ever this week and then within hours. They started giving the stolen funds back. The heck happened at a decentralized. Finance platform called pauling network. The cyber thieves stole more than six hundred million dollars worth of digital tokens on tuesday. An anonymous person online took credit for the heist saying they did it for fun and to expose a vulnerability in pauling network system about a third of the stolen crypto currency was returned yesterday and more could still turn up experts. Say it's possible. The hacker decided to return the digital money because cryptocurrency exchanges are easily tracked on the trading platforms. That would have made it much harder for the hacker to actually cash in on the stolen

Funding Is Pouring into Companies Producing Self-Driving Tech

"Self-driving software firm embark trucks said wednesday. It plans to go public in a deal that would raise more than six hundred million dollars and value the company at more than five billion than there's alphabets just raised two and a half billion dollars in fresh funding as it tries to expand. Its self driving taxi. Fleet outside phoenix and general motors has increased. Its planned investment and autonomous vehicles. Chris gerdes is a professor of mechanical engineering and co director of the center for automotive research at stanford. he's also a safety advisor with ford's autonomous vehicle division. I asked him where all this is going. If you think about everything that you do when you drive a car everything from just making sure you can maintain your position in the lane to thinking about how you predict the actions of other road users around you thinking how you slow down automatically if you can't see well because of rain on the windshield all of these things are technical challenges that require different skill sets and require different levels of engineering development. So you're not necessarily going to see a single advanced from a bunch of smart people in a garage. Lead the field forward. It's it's to take a large team of engineers working together and they're going to require a lot of funding. It should be said that a ton of money has already been invested in this. How far has that gotten us. It's a good question. And i think that's one thing that the industry's asking themselves is. How close are we to the finish line. And the reason that's a hard question to answer is that the really is no fixed list of requirements of. What are the things that you need to do to develop a self driving car. Normally engineering works in terms of use at a list of requirements. And then you develop a product to meet those requirements but in fact the requirements are still being discovered as companies field.

"six hundred million dollar" Discussed on The Majority Report with Sam Seder

"I mean it's such an important point so the one hand on focusing very closely on this on this family in the book and their culpability on the other hand this is a story about systemic failure just totally widespread systemic failure instances in which all of the relevant kind of public institutional gatekeepers that are supposed to prevent a public health crisis. Like this from happening. A didn't do their jobs and doj is right at the front of the line there because what happened was in two thousand seven as you said you had a. Us attorney's office in the western district of virginia that had spent five years investigating purdue and indeed investing the sackler lers and wanted to bring a really powerful case against them thought they had a powerful case against the company. What they wanted to do is charge. Three senior executives at the company with felonies and the plan was as often the case. If you did that at least one of them would flip and turn on the sackler would go on. And potentially prosecute the doctors themselves who owned and controlled the company. But what happened was at the eleventh hour. The family and the company sent some of their well-connected fixers from both sides of the aisle. So they have rudy giuliani on the one hand but also mary jo white former. Us attorney for the southern district of new york who would become the head of the sec. Under obama the two of them appealed to the political leadership. The bush that george w bush justice department and essentially defanged. This case what happened was the brass said to the. Us attorney in the western district of. Virginia you can't charge these guys with felonies so at the point where those guys are. Just gonna plead to misdemeanors threat of jail time. There's no way they're going to turn on the sackler. So what you ended up with was a guilty plea by the company and then a six hundred million dollar fine which to one way of looking at things. There's a lot of money. But i can tell you. I interviewed somebody who worked at the company. Who saw the company's cfo say that's nothing new us. We've had that money in the bank for years. This was a speeding ticket. It was it was a fine at a time when the company was making billions of dollars a year. it's functionally like I have a delivery truck. And i get a parking ticket now and then i mean that's part of the cost of doing business totally All right so let's let's go back you the first Third or so. The book is dedicated. To guy wasn't even alive when this happened but he arthur sackler. Whoa was i i you know. I guess innovative. It's hard to use that word Some because it of what he essentially developed it seemed the concept of medicine as an entrepreneurial exercise and tell us about sackler in about that dynamic Where where he basically you know. He turned medicine into really a full on commodity. Yeah this was. This was certainly the biggest creative choice in writing. The book was as you say to a third of the book and a guy who dies before the introduction of oxycontin content. But i think arthur sackler was a a sufficiently important figure that the decision is justified. Know it's not just that he was the wacky uncle Who there are great stories about for me. It was really more that you can see in arthur sackler in embryo. Everything that happens later with oxycontin. So you're originally. There are three sackler brothers. Arthur is the oldest is younger brothers. Or mortimer raymond. They grow up to jewish the children of jewish immigrants in brooklyn. They grew up in the against the backdrop of the great depression and all three of them go on to become doctors but they were also very entrepreneurial. And arthur in particular. Had i think a kind of idealistic sense in the forties and fifties that there were amazing things happening in the pharmaceutical industry. That someday there'd be a pill that could fix every human affliction and he wanted to be there for it and to make money In the process and so he goes into pharmaceutical advertising. Which at the time was kind of a backwater. But arthur had this sort of don draper style intuition about how you things to people and specifically you know how you sell things not just to consumers but to doctors. He realized that what you really need to do is persuade the doctor. Because the doctor has the prescription pad and that's incredibly valuable to a pharma company. And so he he. He employs a whole bunch of tricks. Some of it is just getting an army of pharmaceutical reps to go out and meet with doctors and pharmacists nurses and make the case. They always have this kind of official looking medical literature which has often been underwritten by the pharma companies themselves. Overplaying the therapeutic benefits of the drugs. Underplaying the downsides and in some cases in our when arthur was working just just lying outright about about their products and who it is. That's endorsing them. And arthur really devises this model. There's a guy who was a business partner of his back in the fifties said when it comes to medical advertising arthur sackler invented the wheel that he really was that significant in terms of Changing the way in which medicine and commerce are mingled in this country and so does die in one thousand nine hundred seven but having made a huge fortune marketing valium. This is one of the things. That's so fascinating is the first grade sackler. Fortune came from the marketing. Valium in the nineteen sixties. And i think that arthur really created a playbook that his his family his brothers and particularly his his nephew richard would then employ to devastating effect with oxycontin and and ultimately you.

"Enjoy it. Is ian rapoport joins us to talk about things that are happening off the field whether it's Uzis in lambo or guns being shot at players in the nfl which by the way might go hand in hand whenever we decide to talk about that later. Also just read an article. That ian rapoport was once threatened to be killed by aaron hernandez live in front of a crowd. So it'd be cool to talk about. I didn't know that that just popped up with ian reported about one twentieth eastern daylight time to five guess. Who's joining us. All gas up. The jeff passan is coming to town because baseball has started something Brand new their pitchers the greatest one in the game right now. I guess degrom is what everybody says this guy. He's pitched seventy two innings or something like that in his only giving up. Four earned runs batted in more than that. So he's unbelievable. I'd be a big talker. I assume if it wasn't for you know the guy leading bigs in in home runs that he's also a pitcher that's shohei but anyways he was the first one to check last night or yesterday and then a couple of other people were. It was a full pat down situation talking now. Lazy ass fat guy at a soccer game video where he's wearing the yellow. Get yet on your good. no no. We're talking hat off the guy. Fasten that belt a little bit. Let's do i and touch your neck to. Let's see what you got back your house your hair. You gotta spider attacking your god damn hair. It's a fool thing it's a laughing stock. I think by both the empire and the pitcher and everybody that is watching the video because this is the greatest pitcher and again right now right. Yeah maybe ever. I'm being told that. And i'm watching the video from outside baseball in rate after hearing all these people are cheating right right after. You're the first person i see on the internet. Let's let's act like don't stay dialed in with what's going on in baseball and every single day the first thing i see this guy getting a full strip searched before even gets off diamond. I mean he's still on the dining could do thing they could come into the dugout right. Follow him in there and do it in their. This thing is in front of the entire stadium. This thing is he is honest stage. Could you imagine if what graham they took off his hat and they're like well the fuck. Is this seventy two innings four and runs out get that neck and then a magician porn a quarter out of his. Aw you thought you could find it. Then go into the end of the belt. What if they did that to the entire game would have been. I mean he would have been run off the tracks because this is their best guy in a rule that has been around for a long and by the way he did not and they say he does not and he doesn't have to. Everybody is actually trying to catch up to him by using all this shit but this should has been used since the beginning of time. Now they're doing this whole stop and frisk. Lead situation to baseball pitchers i mean. It is a hilarious scene over there and once again the things that happened outside of baseball much better than a sport themselves schmidt massive baseball fan. How do you feel about this. And what are you gonna ask jet about. We were talking earlier before the show started. I wanna know like it. Is this every single game like we were saying you said. Hey now that he. They checked him. He was good. I mean you like his stuff is incredible. It just is. He's very very fucking good like so. Is he good to go now. Does he have to do this again. Or is this going to be every single store a random check. Yeah exactly so. I mean you want you wanna talk about. The games are too long to slow as it is like shit like this if they're doing multiple times a game a couple different innings. I think this winning over anybody. So what are we say we landed upon. We like to think of this as a nice brainstorming show. You know you kinda hear the brain unload into you. Know the might. What did we we say this was. It was an unwritten rule. That was abused. k which is when unwritten rules get exposed then leads to restriction which is normally an overreaction right and then it kind of writes itself for instance it happened with the footballs kicking. Footballs in the nfl. It was an unwritten. Roll balls get beat up then all of a sudden one of those balls abusive those balls. It became too fat. It accidentally got in the hands of brett farve. Far thurs an interception. They change the entire role brand new ball every single time. You kick it then changes that whole thing. This is an overreaction to right the ship of what decades of wrongs is what they're saying for the unwritten rule that everybody seemed to be on board with until they took it a step too far they got too good. They abused it. Even the good pitcher started doing it because they saw everybody else doing it because they saw five hundred. Six hundred million dollar deals being signed by people so you could see how maybe happened with steroids. People abused mark. Maguire kuneva move. Is god damn arms. They had the best ratings of all time. But then that is automatically going to be abused. Everybody started doing it. It became a big story. Then they had to. Overreact corrected this. How long does this last we think makes. There's no way this makes it to the end of the season right. This is just a couple of weeks. I assume and then they're going to be like okay. We all agree to go back down to just the sunscreen and rausing or something like that. Let's get rid of the spider tax the shit that you actually can lift trucks with you think. That's what's going to happen or is this going to be for another year. Do you think is going to be a full time thing. I really don't know. Because i mean especially the way. They're doing it like you said they're not going in the dugout or anything so i if they catch someone they want it to be like a public this cheating but i think the the biggest issue to that a lot of these like star pitcher the guys who are making these rules and never played baseball like they don't they don't throw as hard as we have no idea what this stuff does..

Well anyone who has a middle schooler at home. If kids seem extra attached to their tech devices at the moment. they're not alone.

I don't know what the cases with him by four different women came forth claiming they had children by larry. Hillblom probably had a bunch. Yeah either way. And they were confirmed after testing and because he'll blow had not updated his one thousand nine hundred two will he didn't have a clause including future. Children are addressing any future children in any way and it eventually included over two hundred attorneys on two continents lately. Hillblom's children were awarded sixty percent of his six hundred million dollar state making them among the wealthiest residents of saipan at that point so edible. The people coming forward saying hey listen. I had his kid. You know what i want. My money texted me when i was honestly probably underaged probably thirteen related and also like the upbringing of the child to that point probably was really hard.

Facebook pledges to invest $1 billion in news after Australia standoff ends

"Facebook is defending its stance in australia saying that it has invested six hundred million dollars just since two thousand eighteen to support the news industry globally and it plans to spend at least a billion dollars or more over the next three years going forward quoting facebook's nick clegg the assertions repeated widely in recent days that facebook steals or takes original journalism for its own benefit always were and remain false. We neither take nor ask for the content for which we were being asked to pay a potentially exorbitant price. In fact newslink's are a small part of the experience. Most users have on facebook fewer than one post in every twenty-five five in your news feed will contain a link to a new story and many user say they would like to see even less news and political content. As tim burners lee the inventor of the world wide web warned. The australian law could make the internet as we know it unworkable. Arguing that it quote risks breaching a fundamental principle of the web by requiring payment for linking between certain content online and quote. Facebook is more than willing to partner with news. Publishers absolutely recognized quality. Journalism is at the heart of how open societies function informing and empowering citizens and holding the powerful to account.

Is Tether a Fraud? Its Bank Says It's Not

"Last weekend. A medium post by a pseudonymously former bitcoin investor going. By the name crypto anonymous made the rounds on crypto twitter and elsewhere it was titled the bit short inside cryptos doomsday machine and alleged that the stable coin tether which is supposed to be bagged one to one. Us dollars is a quote highly probable. Fraud there are a lot of different. Strands that crypto anonymous wove together to present his or her hypothesis. But the one. That was people's zoomed in on concerned whether or not tether is fully backed so tether is run by tether limited and limited bank is deltec which is out where you work and that's a bank based in the bahamas and the part of the peace that people are concerned with was a section where curcio anonymous showed some tables of the foreign liabilities of domestic banks. And here she wrote quote from january twenty twenty two september twenty twenty the amount of all foreign currencies had by all the domestic banks in the bahamas increased only by six hundred million dollars going from four point seven billion to five point three billion and so the bahamian dollar is pegged to the us dollar one to one so it's the same in us dollars. Then he or she wrote but during the same period. Total issued tethers increased by almost five point four billion going from four point six billion to ten billion so great. Can you explain why this discrepancy exists. Well i've seen that article. Actually i find it very interesting that there's someone that apparently have time. Perfectly buying and selling crypto actually is often the case those article of so-called experts. They usually have time to market like geniuses and then started claim scenes that are kind of unpacked especially in that case they went to that. I think it's the digest central bank of the bahamas and it became overnight a banker expert which i loved because we always look to recruit but in that case they didn't deal it further about how that works first of all. They should have known that the bahamas is what they call them. Offshore jurisdictions so what it means offered ratings soon as you have domestic bank and international banks into domestic banged there is to type of licensed linked to it. You have what they call the authorized dealer license and you'll try agent license deltec dual own authorize agent license which is a license that allowed him to custody. Bahamian don't have what we call an authorized dealer license so when it comes to cash on deposit we cannot old any in dollars cash deposit and at the same time because we cannot all those dollars. Behave in dollars. We cannot serve local customer so what we have is we have along that authorization license. We have an international bank license. Or i think it's called restricted license as well so in fact for that report and i'm sorry for that person because i guess he thought he was onto something. We are not a domestic bank for a reported deposit and actually if he went and the little effort to go indego bit about the size of the bahamian market of thinking would have found out that the entire massive banks have around two hundred billion dollars in assets. I believe and we are part of that. So we are not a domestic bank aside of authorized agent license but that is irrelevant business for us and maybe be much must be reported. We are an international bank and that is part of the international aspect. That's why i did answer it to some people asking but you are domestic within no because we cannot take domestic customer and we cannot hold domestic him daughters so that report is actually a nut relevant and nothing to be in there

Many In Flint Question Whether They'll Get Justice For Water Crisis

"According to multiple media reports michigan's former governor and other officials will be charged in relation to the flint water crisis seven years ago despite possible criminal charges. A lot of residents still question. Whether those officials will be held accountable. Michigan radio steve carmody reports. Nearly seven years ago government leaders here push the button that switch the city of flint drinking water source from detroit's water system to the flint river flag. The intent was to save money. The result was a complete disaster treated river water damage to pipes which then released lead and other contaminants into the city's drinking water eighteen months later. The water was switched back but the damage was done. Blood lead levels soared in young children. People were forced to use bottled water for drinking and washing clothes. The city was forced to rip out thousands of old pipes while testifying about the flint water crisis before congress. Four years ago former governor. Rick snyder acknowledged mistakes. State and federal officials failed the families of flint. Snyder was not among the fifteen state and local government officials face criminal charges for their handling of the crisis half of them pled guilty to lesser charges in exchange for no jail time and in two thousand nineteen michigan's new attorney general dropped charges against the remaining defendants citing problems with the original investigation. The investigation seemed over until yesterday when the associated press reported that several former government officials including former governor snyder. We'll be facing new charges. If that happens. Legal experts say it would be difficult case for prosecutors. Peter hammer teaches law at wayne state university in detroit. He says despite possible difficulty getting convictions. It's important to bring charges especially in an era where we're living where people are not being held accountable. This could be an important statement about the significance of the rule of law and that not even the highest public official in the state is going to get off. Scot-free a spokeswoman for former governor. Rick snyder calls the reports of impending charges a public relations smear campaign saying that if brought they would be meritless since during eighteen months of foul-smelling dirty tap water that made them sick flint residents have demanded justice and compensation a us district court. Judge is expected to decide in the coming days if she will give preliminary approval to a massive settlement agreement resolving most of the thousands of outstanding lawsuits last year. The state of michigan announced. It struck a deal with attorneys representing flint residents to pay six hundred million dollars into a settlement fund. A few months later the city of fled a local hospital and an engineering firm agreed to chip in another forty one million dollars. Nearly eighty percent of that money would be set aside for plaintiffs. who were young children or minors. During the crisis they are the ones most at risk for suffering long-term lead related health problems. But growing course of critics say it's not enough a group of flint. Civic and religious leaders led by pastor. John maclean gathered monday outside. The city's water plant to express concern about the settlement. We believe that the proposed settlement curly allocated is just as disrespectful as injury-cause by the water crisis tragedy itself in addition to tens of thousands of residents. There aren't the lawyers lots of them. More than one hundred forty took part in a zoom hearing with the judge last month. This is part of the challenge facing the judge how to divide a large pool of money without leaving some feeling victimized again. Flint's mayor says it's important. His residents have a belief in justice and developments. This week may help with that for npr news. I'm steve carmody in flint.

Mirati to Rival Amgen in Solid Tumors

"So to start I wanNA talk about exact sciences ticker symbol e x a s, and they are now trading at around twelve billion dollar market cap, and what they announced is liquid biopsy testing data in six different cancer types showing a sensitivity of eighty six percent and a specificity of ninety five percent, and they did kind of a grab bag of cancer types. We have lung ovarian, liver pancreatic, and Alpha Jill. And so I did video on exact sciences quite a while ago I thought their evaluation was a little bit toppy back then and was waiting for dipped to buy, and that's what I did during the Cova crisis I took a small position and then I sold just recently at around ninety four and I think is trading just over one hundred dollars right now but this. Is Nice to see them kind of moving into new areas because I think one of the things that they're struggling with is leaning on their old testing kit the colours guard while all these other companies are trying to get into things like liquid biopsy, which it's going to be a real game changer in the space. Once these treatments get validated and approved by the FDA. Now. They're not alone doing this exact sciences is kind of just finally getting into this because other big players like alumina through grail they just acquired this private company called grail officially officially. We've garden health personalisation of been floating around and invitations. Well, who just acquired archer DSL there's a lot of companies in the space, but exact scientists has shown some pretty good success in their previous testing kits. So it just makes sense them to jump into this new area and be a good competitor. So I think right now probably a little bit toppy with the price around one hundred but I'm pretty pleased with the small profit. I made given the number shares that I have. So that's exact sciences. Want to move now into regeneration ticker symbol. And they're trading at a sixty billion dollar market CAP. I did a video on them also a few months ago, looking at kind of their staples in terms of the different products that they offer and I concluded that they were relatively over-valued back. Then I think now also a little bit overvalued, but it does depend on how well their product. So and the kind of revenue they can bring in obviously but the news that we heard is that they released data on their antibody cocktail for covid nineteen. and. What we saw is that it reduced viral loads and symptoms versus placebo in non. Patients who are infected with SARS co to and what they shared our results from initial cohort of two hundred and seventy five patients, and they also have nine hundred or more patients enrolled. So this is kind of a preliminary analysis that they're showing US and they've called it a phase one, two, three trials. So they're doing the PK the safety along with the efficacy and other sorts of secondary outcomes all at once and when I look through their stuff, they started off by kind of categorizing patients based. On Sarah Negative or zero positive and I, think it's important that they do this because we're looking at a treatment for covid nineteen and if people are already sero-positive in their bodies, already mounted an antibody response in order to bring down viral loads. So what regeneration is trying to pose here is that the negative patients which means they have not mount that antibody response have significantly higher viral load and they make a better target for most treatments probably also their antibody cocktail that they're gonNA share data with. So. Then the data that they show here shows a range of efficacy based off of viral load. So we have tended the power of four copies, parallel all the way to tend to the seven copies personnel. So quite a big range in viral load here and I just blew this up on the screen. What we're seeing is that at the higher viral load, the treatment and there two different doses here in the green and the red line, we see that much more dramatic decrease in the amount of viral load in. These patients and it does kind of make sense because if your body's already mounted an antibody response, the window of efficacy is just going to be a bit smaller than if it's before the at which your body's manning response. So I think for these patients, it's definitely positive data. They also looked at other other metrics as well and I'm not going to get into everything but they did look at a day to alleviation of symptoms and they looked at the overall population of patients. It's the difference of nine with Placebo. To between six and eight, depending on the dose that they gave the antibody cocktail with the negative group alone, the placebo was thirteen days and then the low and high dose was six and eight respectively. So obviously a big difference when it comes to whether or not the patient is zero negative or positive. So that's probably going to inform the FDA when it comes to approving the drug or giving some kind of guidance on which patients should take the drug and who are likely to see more positive outcomes from that. So overall. I think it's good. It gets a step ahead of the Gilead data where I don't think we've even seen a placebo group yet. So it's nice to see regenerate actually do this placebo controlled trial. We can see whether or not there is efficacy and I, look forward to seeing the rest of the data I'm not if this merits taking a position regenerate here given that they're such a large company already and they have so many different assets that are I would say more likely to contribute to their bottom line. This doesn't entice me to take a position, but it's nice to see that we're getting all these therapies are starting to see vaccine data, and this just makes me feel better in general that we're going to move towards being able to treat this disease and hopefully get out from under this and then Kinda recover with the economy. With that, let's talk about the main story for today, and that is morality Therapeutics Ticker Symbol M rt ex, and they're trading at a price of one sixty, two point zero five per share giving them a market cap of seven point two, billion dollars. Their Q. Two, twenty, twenty, net loss was eighty, three, million dollars, and this represents an eighty percent increase year over year there their q two net current cash is six, hundred million dollars giving them a runway of about until twenty twenty two I would say but let's also be careful that if they see positive data. This year or next year is a good chance that they're going to raise again. And what Morad is trying to do is develop targeted cancer treatments and they're specifically looking at solid tumors and even more specific than that are K. Rasa inhibitors, and so they have to compounds Marta six, eight, four, nine, and x, one, three, three. They're also looking at checkpoint inhibitor resistance with their compound sicher Vance it, and I'll talk about that in a bit later. To start though we gotta talk about chaos and the reason why this is so important is that chaos mutations are present in a large population of cancer patients. The first thing it's important to note is that chaos is pretty ubiquitous. It's a critical part of the map kinase signaling pathway, and this is very important in basically every single cell. This pathways involved in Cell Proliferation Cell Survival had differentiation here. There's a whole bunch of other stuff and it makes a little bit confusing because it is involved in. So many different pathways that if you were just to inhibit this molecule non specifically, you're likely to see significant side effects with patients. It's for this reason that it's important that we can come up with a targeted therapy that will only target cells that have a mutation in chaos rather than the healthy normal. KS. To talk a little bit more about its function, it works as a GT as and what this means is that it takes a molecule GDP converts it to GDP using that phosphate group to continue the signaling pathway. The next step is Raff or something like that mutations in. A company twenty, one point, six percent of all human cancers, and then I have here that chaos the predominant or exclusive Rask's mutated in three of the top four neoplasms that account for cancer deaths in the US lung colon and pancreatic.

Finally, Airlines are Dropping Change Fees

"Wars daily on this September fourth. Happy Friday friends and happy. Labor. Day. Weekend. Labor, day, marks the end of summer for many of us an occasion for one last Hurrah barbecues pool parties in one last long weekend vacation perhaps this year well, most of us are staying home and the airlines have absolutely nothing to celebrate. Passenger levels are down seventy percent from a year ago, according to figures from the Transportation Security Administration looking financial disaster in the face, the airlines are trying to woo travelers back given the safety concerns that's proving difficult. So on Monday, United Airline CEO Scott Kirby took a startling and many would say welcome step here he is in a video announcement. Permanently getting rid of change vs on standard economy and premium tickets for travel within the US. Changes inevitable these days, but it's how we respond to change. That matters most. We hear from customers about where we can improve getting rid of this feat is often offered West and for good reason until now it could set you back two hundred to five hundred dollars to change a flight on one of the Big Three Airlines, United Delta or American sometimes that fee was more than the cost the original ticket simply the existence of that fee put all three airlines at a competitive disadvantage. To Southwest Airlines, which proudly boasts that it has never charge change fees or baggage fees, either which is another story well, now, non of the other airlines will either at least for domestic flights about twenty four hours after Kirby went public. American Airlines and Delta followed suit and canceled their domestic change fees as the Wall Street reports American went even further canceling their change fees for international flights to Canada Mexico, and the. Caribbean. Now, the question is, what will it cost them? US carriers earned close to three billion dollars from changing cancellation fees in two thousand, nineteen according to the US Transportation Department. All three major airlines in hefty amounts of money. American was I with more than eight, hundred, million dollars coming from vs Delta was close behind united took in more than six hundred, million dollars one might imagine that it could be hard for. The airlines to give up these fees after all about fifteen percent of their revenues come from the fact did travelers changed their minds united is burning through about forty million dollars a day and could cut up to thirty six thousand jobs by October first that according to CNBC. So you might think that every possible penny counts but if no one traveling anyway, well, it's

United scraps ticket change fees

"The most hated of all airline fees. Is the fee your charge to change your ticket? And never more than right now during corona virus where if somebody books a ticket to travel somewhere, they may later say, ooh, I really don't feel comfortable going. And that's why. The nation's airlines have followed the longstanding policy of South West. With. asterisks where you can buy a ticket now. On. Any US, airline and under Their straightjacket conditions. You don't lose the money. If you choose not to take the flight, you just gotTa meet all the rules jump through the right hoops and all that. But the reality is. Bit Airlines have only looked at what they make from change fees rather than how much business they ultimately don't get because they have changed fees in the first place. Let me explain. So I. Fly a lot on south. West Airlines. Until this year when I'm not flying anywhere because I'm in. Quarantine. Because a pre existing anyway. So I would fly typically in a year. I would take somewhere twenty five to thirty trips a year. Right, now I'm taking zero. So. I had a trip that I talked about. On the show last fall that change five times before I took it and I talked about how on the big three full fare airlines American united and Delta. I would have paid a thousand dollars and change fees before I ever left the ground. But because that was a ticket on south, west at paid zero in change fees. And so it's always been competitive market advantage for South West that they don't charge change fees that other airlines do. Well now, United Airlines. Has announced that they are eliminating change fees. Not Related to corona, virus, just eliminating change fees. On. All their airfares for domestic travel except. Basic economy basic economy is the one where we hate you but we'll take your money and let you fly. That has a long list of don'ts. And all that with basic economy, they have basic economy at the airlines so that their fares look lower. Than they really are. But anyway. As on United. Or going to have no change reason that this is something that upfront looks gutsy on United's part. Because according to the fads united collects over six, hundred, million dollars a year that goes straight to profit. From the change fee junk fee because the reality is. The cost for an airline somebody changing a flight. If any is just a couple of pennies. There's really no cost to the airline is just a junk fee. And so United's walking away from fifty million dollars a month. and. What they're not GONNA get in change fees but what they may well find. Is that people are more likely to book a ticket. Knowing that they can change it later without having to pay pay change fee. Now, we'll see over the course of this week. If The. Other two full fare airlines. American Delta. Follow United because often the three full fare airlines pretty much act like tweedle dee tweedle dum on what they do in terms of junk fees and nuisance fees and all that, and so we'll see and this will. Potentially. Erode. A huge market advantage four southwest airlines if airlines just blanket. Eliminate pretty much all the fares that are subject to junk fees united did not do so for international flights, but most people fly only domestic. So it it's not as much an issue for most people but. This is a very positive change. And I think back. That the junk fee for changing a flight for a long time was twenty five dollars. And then over the years the full fare ions got more more greedy kept raising it to the ridiculous two hundred dollar point and as travel writers pointed out repeatedly. Two hundred dollars change fee in most cases is higher than the fair bid a leisure travel or paid for their ticket in the first place.

Other issues at the time local and state officials continued to insist that it was safe. It wasn't until outside researchers tested the water and found elevated levels of lead that residents particularly children were urged not to drink.

Business Is Booming At National Parks

"Standing outside the north entrance to Yellowstone National Park in Gardner Montana you could tick through about two dozen state license plates in the time that it takes you to drink a coffee. That is normal in the summer. What's not normal is the people driving those cars doing stuff like this we rented a van and it has a Florida license sag but I put a sign in the back window that said we are not from Florida. Lynn Hunter and her family are from Kansas, your that Kansas, even grandson, Noah will tell you. Don't want anybody think we are same goes for just about any place that's been in the news recently for having spikes in Cova Cases Families like the hunters are driving national parks like yellowstone in droves right now, king to escape from wherever are trying to salvage a summer of stress and they know that it comes with risks we were scared to come really we've been planning it for a long time. So here they are at one of the country's first national parks and they're happy they did thing is the same is true for about one point five, million other people since mid-may Ricarda, raise, and his family are from North Carolina. Made. It will be a kind of a little bit but a lot of people out there over the last couple of weeks the number of cars entering the Gardner entrance at Yellowstone National Park are higher than they were at the same time. Last year restaurants have long waits rafting companies are struggling to find workers and fly fishing guides. Richard Parkes owner of parks fly shop says too bad anglers. There's just as many people casting for Yellowstone Brown or cutthroat trout as there's ever been before I. Think we're getting some people that are just refugee ing Outta those places that's great for his bottom line park says he makes between eighty and ninety percent of his annual earnings between June and September. But at seventy seven years old, it's also a bit worrisome. I'm official old. Flood. Is. One of the people inherently more vulnerable than others and I get a little nervous when? Some mob of people running in. No Mash, no apparent care of how many people showed in the place but that's the dance he's having to do yellowstone brings in more than six hundred, million dollars to its surrounding communities every year most of that in the summer nationally visitor ship to national parks generates more than forty billion dollars annually, and so even while there are concerns particularly around rural parks like yellowstone that outsiders may be bringing in more than just. Their pocket books during the pandemic it's a risk that many are willing to take and so foreign yellowstone it seems to be paying off definitely get for the business community I think that you know in May they may have thought that they might not make it through the end of the year, and now they're seeing record breaking numbers juries. PETKOFF is the executive director of Garner's Chamber of Commerce so far she says only. Two Park employees and three visitors have tested positive for COVID. She sure some have gone undetected, but the numbers thus far are encouraging. Typically visitation goes way slower October. So we only have more months to make it through. So I think everyone has kind of holding their breath and just hoping the community spread doesn't happen I. Don't think I've ever been in a summer that I wanted to end as quickly as this one. Camp Shali Superintendent of Yellowstone National Park. There's not a day that I come to work where fearful of multiple employees testing positive for having symptoms yellowstone like many national parks around the country is limiting its services this summer to try and protect employees and visitors closing campgrounds in some cases or visitor centers. Social distancing and masks are strongly encouraged outside of the post office yellowstone's headquarters to mask bear statues serve as a reminder. But the National Park. Service overall has not mandated face coverings. Charlie says most visitors are doing a good job of protecting themselves and others, but not always. So He's urging people if you're sick.

Conversation With Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson

"Delighted to welcome. To our program, a very important guests at this unbelievably strange time from the Mountain West Conference Commissioner Craig Thompson Commissioner thank you very very much for making the time I I, I can only imagine what your schedule is like. These days especially Zoom Bill Assuming there is one good afternoon. Paul good to be with you. You know I hope to mode no more about The next ninety minutes to two hours I have a four o'clock board calling five o'clock standing Monday de call, so we all compare notes and Kinda live by that old adage. God gave us two ears and one off for a reason, right? We're trying to learn from each other. Well we appreciate you making time I'm curious before we get down to some of the obvious questions Since, this occurred you. You've been very obviously active in in the NCAA, basketball tournament, having chaired the the men's basketball committee, and it all started there, and and I know in in your many many years is as commissioner. You've experienced so much but How do you? How do you prepare yourself for something like this? which is literally off the charts. Really is and you know again you don't because. no-one there might have been a few people worldwide They'd be well into their hundreds that were around nineteen eighteen. Spanish flu days, but For the most part, nobody's dealt with any of this Paul. So it's all new, and and it's It's disconcerting. It's hard. It's sad, but it's It's life and it's something we. We have to adjust to and and moved from. In as you get closer to what are really critical decisions, other conferences have made these choices many have not What what do you weigh as you're about to go onto? Another call here how how do you determine these things? Well, it's really got to beat a the safety and the health soccer you I think it's simply going to come down to what is the risk tolerance for for all the various groups just within our FBI subdivision and certainly there's. A rank and file and differences between the autonomous five leaks and a group of five leaks, but You've got you've got. A ton of governors. There's fifty state governors in that up BS group, one hundred thirty board of trustees, regions, one hundred thirty university presidents and Chancellors hundred thirty athletic directors under thirty head, football coaches, and I guarantee it dollar on the same page, and so you know we're. We're just trying to adjust on what makes the most sense for my university and ultimately our conferences. And everyone has a different set of circumstances as you said Commissioner Thompson but. It is late I think you know that we all we all know that. As you are about to go on these calls here in the next hour or two How do you start narrowing the window and coming to? Conclusions! Well we all kind of went into that false pretense and hope that fans should be better in July and August and we had time right back in March. We had four months to figure this out when we've got probably less than four weeks. A couple of weeks a big date coming up on Friday with you know the the six week period starting extended team practices, and then most camps opening somewhat in that August seventh time friend I! I had a good exchange with one of our head. Football coaches today saying you know I don't even know what to do. Because of campus regulations and concerns, we have one institution that's had nearly one hundred football players for little over a month. Now Paul and we have another institution that literally has no football players, conditioning of or working out degree, and so you know we're all over the map based on a local and university, muncipality rules and regulations and. I said this for months gone on standby. One of one of the big concerns and focal points for us is the state of California They just announced today that they're going to delay. The start of their prep season suggested until December or January didn't give an exacting, and they join a couple of states that the prep seasons have been canceled altogether one of our states New Mexico, so just just trying to deal with all the nuances and differences in rules, policies and allowances. As you as you try to deal with with some some issues before that certainly, the non-conference issues a lot of non conference. Games have been scrubbed. I. Has that been a major issue for you or Were you in reasonably good shape. Well it is a big issue, and of course years of all years. This is our twenty seven season A. We had more home games against PAC twelve than any time in our previous 21-year-history, we lost home games. Ucla at both. San Diego State ally. Utah, Colorado Washington state calendars on a state. They were GONNA play at the new two billion dollar NFL stadium in Las Vegas against UNLV so a lot of people like to point to that financial loss of losing the the six road at twelve games and a and a guarantee. Those seven home games from from both of financial interest level, and then ultimately you know television perspective CBS. Fox Aren't real thrilled. You know that we lost those seven home games. Talking to the Commissioner of the Mountain West Craig Thompson discussing all the variables. Commissioner. We. We've talked to so many different commissioners over these past few months, and as you as you so eloquently pointed out a minute ago. Everyone has a different set of circumstances and challenges you maybe more than than most because of the geographical aspect. But how do you think and it shouldn't be that hard to think about it since it's not far off? How how do you ultimately come up with what you would say? Good solution, not only for your member institutions, but for the safety of the athletes. Well again. You not to lean on your medical people and that's one of the. Major aspects of this board call coming up in an hour, so Paul because It's the first time that they in a while. They've heard directly from the the medical advisory group and you know they don't depend on them. You know they. They are the experts, will we? The board are economists and Then different walks of life. They're not medical people, per se, and so you know you really have to lean heavily on what makes sense I. I said four months ago and I I contend today. A lot of this is going to be perhaps probably triggered by what happens on our campuses. What they look like in the next month or so you know everybody's either hybrid mostly online You know there's GonNa. Be Certainly people walking around campus, but you know you. You really can't expect to have a college athletics if you don't have a fairly open in some degree. Campus. Commissioner I, it's no secret Wherever conferences are located and and and spread that football pays the majority of the bills there. There's some outliers of course but What's at stake you just from a revenue standpoint? Well you know. Let's all kinds of figures in I I know that A couple of our department said have lost Well in excess of ten million dollars now, and then could jump into without football alum Paul you know double and triple, and you know those are not insignificant numbers. They're smaller than the world. You live in I lived in Atlanta. For four years. New Orleans for twelve years both children born in New Orleans and well versed in an SEC football, and what it means in a walk of life, and so it's different, no question it's different I live in Colorado and and what it's like in Western states, but but none the less. You, do not escape whatever love your Ad. That football is probably that you know eighty eighty five percent of of an athletic budget, and and so it's so very important, but you know as harmful as painful rather as it is from the financial perspective now that cannot be the driving force won't be the driving force. It will be that the health and safety it'll be university decisions. You know I've always. Always felt. The presidents of universities and chances have an extremely difficult position now more so than ever because they're pushed him pulled in and all these different directions and you know I. Don't know how the decision will. Ultimately made would fall looks like from terms of football. I don't know who makes that decision, but Hopefully they'll be some clobbering collective. Let's let's go right to the College Football playoff. Can you even imagine a world where pick a number? Three conferences can play in the fall and seven up to play in the spring. What happens to see a p.? Is there a CFP? Does that make sense to have a CFP? I guess it might depend on those three conferences are and I use. You know you, you're GONNA have to look at this for for the good of everybody, and and you know the collaboration and collective exchange and we've seen conferences. Do things unilaterally I mean as a commissioner. You Work for twelve schools. You don't work for honored thirty FBI schools, and so you're doing what's right, and what's your membership is is directing and advise you to do, but we do have to get together and get the same page in some regards spor for the sake of the CFD for instance and the bowl system. I know at least I'm told in talking to your colleagues commissioners. We wind down. I know you've got a lot of meetings to that. You are a collaborative group. I mean that's a fact. I mean we see that all the time but it but I wonder though. Because we've already seen some some. Some schisms as we had the big ten, and then everyone else said something else I mean the PAC twelve and the big ten, and do you. Are you concerned about the stability of of what you do every day and try to work with everyone else within the framework of college athletics. I am and I'm not I mean again. We try to work together, but at the end of the day our plan for fourteen or ten members, order media have will dictate. What direction are leagues go and I know the NCAA takes a ton of shots, but the NCAA is membership driven.

ask red state citizens to pay for it but their dream wishlist everything's free what's redo log Guardia airport authority is always under construction is the worst airport pretty much in the entire country and it's always under construction if I can't remember a time it has been under construction I mean and you get nothing in terms of of anything from the state of New York well maybe they

New York City they have their own set of taxes you know now you got dot com read the Blasi once what not the once a nine billion dollar check it ain't happening says in corona virus related and on top of it all nobody in New York can't even think of a way to open up new York safely I have no plan it's just a hodgepodge mix of everything you know thrown up against the wall and you see this all over the place all these democratic governors the Commonwealth governor of north of member him well deliver the baby and then there will make sure the baby is comfortable that will let the mother decide in consultation with our doctor what we're gonna let the baby live or die I mean that lunatic he's not wearing a mask telling everybody in the Commonwealth of Virginia to wear a mask you got the democratic New Mexico governor violating the corona virus order kept the business open why so she could buy jewelry the Michigan governor now we know our husband it was only a joke makes a phone call because he wants to get his boat in the water people in Michigan they can't even cut their lawn and then we find out that the governor governor shut down Whitmer said about her husband that he went to their second home to rake leaves in the northern part of the state and he came back right after he raked the leaves but when she ordered the the opening in some of these more rural areas in Michigan she said the people not don't rush up there and overwhelm the area well why did husband go up there yeah it's it's insane yeah it is unbelievable I've never seen anything like this you know and well and another thing to be angry about CDC suggesting coronavirus fatality rate higher than the flu but eight times lower than the models and the estimates from the experts that you know originally were projecting two and a half million dead Americans you know you have the great doctor Fauci I respect for Dr Fauci he's dedicated his life to saving lives but he's he has a minute anywhere close to perfect in this you know early or mid mid March saying you don't need to wear masks now you say you have to wear a mask that he changed his tune now he's back to you know well the second wave now of cold it may never happen and mask wearing is symbolic respectful okay I would be my termite but you do what you want but they don't know what the hell they're talking about now a lot of it is because China lied a lot of it is if people made you know with the best gas they have this you know this is this is art is much is science sometimes when you're in the early stages of this you gotta go with your gut here they're the best person with the best got ended up being Donald Trump travel ban quarantines subsequent travel bans they were impeaching him at the time you know the media sensationalism what they told the public that would happen it didn't happen and reality now look I've I'm pro life I believe every life is a gift from god and I want everybody healthy and and hopefully we're gonna learn the lessons that I outlined yesterday on the show because of we look at the states that were successful we can learn from governor Disentis we can learn from governor abit and even governor camp I was critical of early on I thought the tattoo parlor idea opening up and the nail salon was little not so I was wrong on the nail salon I still don't know about the tattoo thing what do I know maybe they maybe they can cut out of an area where the guys just reaching under the plexiglass and do that I've I have no idea I would recommend getting a tattoo now wait and I don't want to put people out of work if you can figure out how to do it safely are you well I was gonna say we'll send Linda she'll go get a tattoo for everybody all my god never never now you know you don't do you want to hear the mean side of me is that my dad would kill me if I did that no I just told my kids I just burn it off yeah I'm like no that's not happening all right let's get tore it and by the way that the Bakul New York New Jersey Pennsylvania Michigan literally the single dumbest decisions in this entire pandemic and then in New York it gets worse because the governor sneaks into a budget bill legal protections so that hospitals and nursing homes a donated a million Bucks to him in twenty eighteen they can't get sued as a result of what happened here well putting Colbert nineteen patients in a nursing home was a bad idea from the get go all right let's go to the gym is in Illinois Jim hi how are you glad you called Sir John I'm just so upset this governor called Cuomo's absolutely call for the death of those people that he sent to these the nursing homes and the nursing home people the innocent citizens that were living there thinking that there are guys in your head some of normal life in their final days and then this guy so this is the all the days of he's just so any money so full of it is full of crap trying to blame the president who's who's done everything bent over backwards to enable these to give both of these governors including him every tool kit available and he bypasses that system incentives instead of sending him to the facilities provided by our president he sent them to these nursing homes by the by his mandate it was not yet no no first is blaming the nursing homes that is all pattern of excuses here he lashed out at the nursing homes it's all about money on my watch and then he said you are responsible for your own PP I'm Mike house I took my breath away because this is a guy that demanded everything from the federal government because he didn't listen it was own health task force and they had no ventilators in the city or in the state and they had two separate studies saying you're gonna need them and they didn't get them but trump made it work he got it done for them man the facilities built the hospitals it gave all the PP equipment I mean the biggest largest fastest medical mobilization in the history of mankind and thank god these manufacturers didn't shut down in the food supply chains that shut down a New York completely would have died it's unbelievable I'm so angry about it I thank you words can't describe it and it is it is beyond any comprehension I have that was the one constant that always made sense the elderly those with underlying conditions those with compromised immune systems are going to be the most vulnerable they were last word Jim yeah I know and then the and I'm right there with your shot and I I don't know who's going to hold him accountable he needs to be held accountable these people cannot keep sliding and getting them just by passing the Buck off those somebody in somebody else for political gain and and not having any consequences for their for murder it's a socially murder you know what he did unbelievable it's it's unreal then you got the situation a bit I can't even watch this video anymore it it upsets me so much that this was the I I cannot believe that this went on for between six and eight minutes it is full force knee head to the pavement no resisting handcuffed it's all over it was over when it started put him in the back of the car somebody stand up and say stop unbelievable I don't get it it drives me nuts all of the you know how frustrating all right let's go to Jim in Utah Jim how are you on veterans of ham radio greetings and so right now you're you're great the president's great Kaley is amazing so highlights wise there's a there's a way you know that your grade the president's Kaley is amazing okay keep going so if you want to hear a little stack going about Kayleigh McEnany led army rather she wants in turn on my TV show your amazing how that will that work for you a little later you should have no recovery Saudi Arabia is a real quick so

"S. based pressure group that's been putting pressure on ought musician museums and galleries not to accept money from the secular family it was founded by the renowned American photographer and artist nan Goldin who herself suffered from opioid addiction not been speaking to two of its representatives making Kaplan and Harrison calling about why the group focuses its protest on the sectors support for the arts Harrison calling first Purdue farmer was sued by the U. S. and a huge lawsuit came out of that which resulted in a six hundred million dollars settlement that all of the kind of proceedings of the core and all of the wrong doing that the company did was penned on like three executives from the company even though the Sackler's were the primary kind controllers of the company they ran the majority of the board and sort of called all the shots and since that two thousand seven proceeding they've really been successful at keeping themselves out of the public eye and that is sort of been there for ten all of this is to maintain a low profile where it's best to do so the one place they don't do that as museums the one place that they actually want their name to be up is on museum wings and the one place they want to be recognized is for their philanthropy and so it seems like the smartest place to try to tackle them to take them on where they live his hand and usually puts it she survived an overdose and then was reading these through kind of landmark pieces about the Sackler family and then was realizing well I've seen the Sackler name at the mat and that all these institutions and all of us to join the group kind of have the sense of wow their name is everywhere and we know what they do and we would go to museums and say don't you know what they do you must because it's really hard I think you know some people have equated it to having like an el Chapo waiting you know it's if you know what they do you would certainly not want to have their name and your me Sam but it's it's not the case because we've confronted a lot of museums who have either not commented or say Hey this contract is in perpetuity and there's nothing we can do our hands are tied and we always question you know what would be the limit for you to get their name off because now we know everything everything is appeared in court in with amazing journalism about the family so it just seems like confronting the museums to say like you're signing off and allowing this family to kind of just live comfortably and we want that to end you both use the word philanthropy and in that is the implication that that you acknowledge that they have in the past done good in the field of museums and the arts which the wider public of benefited from does that raise any questions in your minds about what you're doing I think we're often asked that question and it is really it's it's a hard one to unpack their museum wings calories with their names attached to them and clearly money has gone into those as a result right a big thing you know and we've confronted this kind of a little lesser than museums is that they also have money in medical institutions and what we found is that they also tried to influence how people practice medicine and prescribing of opioids so far with the benefit of their money comes some serious harm they've made their money off the bodies of people literally it doesn't seem worth it I suppose the ought to put on raising is that you know there are people who would have visited those kinds of institutions who would have seen things that they perhaps otherwise would not have seen because that money would not have been there and they're full that particular wing all that particular gallery would not have been as lavishes it now weeds and that's affecting every potential member of the public to an extent I think to go back to what Megan was saying though I think the trade off there is a really really important thing to zero in on the amounts they've given to museums which I think amounts to like in the U. K. for example about eighty million pounds is a paltry sum compared to what they've taken I think that it's a very difficult conversation to have to say where is this money going to come from but I know for sure that it's not right that it comes from drug death how do you judge the success or or otherwise of what you're doing at the moment I think that we've certainly had success in the museum world specifically what you point to for instance the national portrait gallery wanted to do a retrospective with man and she said I won't do it unless you refuse you know a pending donation from the Sackler families in London yes in London and they turned it down and then after that then the Tate decided to stop taking future initials on the sock layers and then the Guggenheim who would we just we had just previously done an action at in February about a month and a half before that followed suit and then set it sort of started the avalanche of institutions refusing future funding from the soccer is that was a huge sea change for us there've been a couple of holdouts still and there is of course the issue of the naming rights which as he spoke to before in perpetuity is so often the issue so what's the name is in place it stays yes it's very difficult to change but naming rights have to break at some point yeah I think it's actually also like lead to an interesting conversation of you need to look at actually like the by laws of your institution and for instance aloof they were able to take it down because they had the freedom to do so where it's like you shouldn't have these iron clad agreements with families the Sackler's name you know they're broiled in over a thousand lawsuits in the United States their name should be posted up on all these institutions Megan capital of the U. S. based groups act of pain we also heard from Harrison Cullen you'll both involved in the arts how do you decide where to say no one way to say yes in terms of funding Helen well that's exactly what I hope the society and I've when progress this issue with the caution because of them what's leads next I'm Michelle also had fined heavily into the art and it's based on all you and the next another company will be dismissed from the ought to donate because each use the plastic I mean companies all there to make a profit they are not charities and it's not for example even for the KKK donation money with all say no because we noticed in legal is a bite when the institution which is a right and what's wrong and they see this is still a legitimate business and like you said it the ticket I think both of the Middle Ages the church is the biggest the hiring of all artist to for the campaign over their crusade chopping Evelyn has handled because they have different leaving difficult does that mean with the value there are now with the motion of the palace under the R. consoles and all the hot I mean look at Rembrandts he has to repaint on top of his own painting because the commission was this the like the reality how they looked so he repainted on top there's a long history of this as you indicate what about the difficult judgment Justin that you've gotta make when you're looking at this and thinking look this money is making a huge difference to what we can display and therefore how much the public can appreciate the will of often that's difficult isn't it it is it is the very fact question and as Alwyn says it it's not a new problem right and also I I don't to sit out and I'm not going back to things like I mean in the in the eighties as a lot of issues around pharmaceutical companies and giving money to HIV and aids charities and there's a lot of push back at the time and it came back to the century moral question about is there any such thing as bad money or is it just the the outputs from what you do with it at the other end but I mean if the thing already took for that piece was wall astonishingly effective advocacy group they pay nothing because I mentioned the live frothing when the most recent to cut ties but this is also again swallowing point a broader trend was saying it out to the mind inside I'm boring Candice was vice chair of the board of the Whitney I'm he quit recently are you that his business interests in the company that manufactures tear gas is used on the southern border in America a lot of artists were pulling out of the Whitney ban Ali or otherwise registering process through the work so it's a very hot topic at the moment and I think more more people is that these things slide for a long time is starting to look at where the money's coming from and he's name is on it but I think it will be with us for as long as there is all the needs thankful you're listening to the BBC world service I'm Judy market with weekend see my drumming.
