Radio Host Jennifer Horn on Larry Elder's Chances of Winning Recall
"Where is larry larry's right at the top. But what's even more important because it's all about question number one. Do you want to recall gavin newsom. It's a to question ballot. I one do you want to recall him. And there is such a tightening in the polls. I honestly didn't even expect this but the l. a. times and berkeley got together. They did a pull that found. Forty seven percent of california voters supported recalling gavin. Newsom fifty percent oppose it. But it's a three point margin of error this is this is neck and neck right now. It's split down the middle. And you know these. Pollsters always oversample kratz in the state. So i am very encouraged. And i think a lot of it had to do with the secretary of state trying to keep larry elder off the ballot and we were on the air last week together at this very time when a judge ruled in favor of larry elder he couldn't have purchased better publicity. So larry elder. According to this survey the same survey is ahead of all of the other candidates and he is in. He's got a pretty good commanding lead. Actually he's got sixteen percent of the votes according to this new poll and then he's followed by john cox and kevin faulkner who were tied at six percents. This this is the way thing. And i love it. I mean it's poetic justice for the democrats that you have this system where it's one ballot. That has the recall question. And then all the candidates on the ballot so with a sixteen with a sixteen percent margin or not margin. but we're leading with with twenty other candidates. Larry could win easily. Absolutely all you need is really. I keep going back to about eighteen to twenty percent of the vote.

Jenner came in a distant third with four percent tied with assemblyman. Kevin kiley now. There's a huge percentage of undecided voters. And that's where. I get kind of excited because if larry jumps out of the gate in the lead like this guess there there are people who still don't know much about him. I mean he's very well known in california but as he can get his message out. Wow maybe maybe. Larry elder's the next governor of the state of california.

And I think that can either be a buzz and a great motivator. And you're like, wow, you really wake up or it can terrify to the point where you realize you're not destined to be entrepreneurial. But you you thrived on that presumably. Five on the adrenaline. Nothing comes with it. And. The authority. I don't like I wish I could stop the exile. I still have days when it's there is RT linked to it, and whenever I'm doing a podcast. But if it's something on TV I mean I did about twenty TV shows over my career, and those were always anxious to make sure you're going to get it, right. But in fact, this people controlling they're going to help you get it, right. So it was with the TV show, then it was, I did a couple of the BBC, mainly there with the local Meridian did did a great one, which I loved, and there was there was more money around, and it was called at home with Maggie, and that was Maggie Philbin, that did blue Peter and tomorrow's world and things my went to her house, and I was the chef there'd be it was. Jesse the garden it was in and she'd invited guests of the moment in, and it would be different people that were in the news. So it's what they call a magazine program, but it was you member, one of the people turn onto food in my early days was rod carrier, an Easter this thing with wine food, and friends, and it was almost. A simpler version of that. I really loved in we used to shoot two shows day and house just in boxer was at the time and that was quite buzzed. I will pay well, for that those, those nowadays, you just do it for free to get publicity, Phil Phil Philly restaurant and clearly in that journey. I mean you to cut down to twenty four covers and go for Michelin star from a financial perspective, was that difficult decision because you take in less money by reducing the covers and having that obsession or was that actually a business acumen decision as it was pure business decision because with the Bank race the way they were the wages, we're painting, the number staff to run a bigger restaurant. Equates I paid more to the Bank and paid more to the staff than I paid to myself. And that's not add in the mall together, that's individually and. Interest rates went from eight percent sixteen percent. I mean, the back now imagine if you pay sixty. Yeah, that's yeah. That is. That's that was scary. I'm great the bit the I left with the Indians. He couldn't afford to buy all. And misdemeanor mustn't call them just an Indian, we've gone great. It was very smooth transaction and I left it with him was. Two percent over base rate for six months to pay off not was interest free for six months, then it went up to five percent over base. So I was earning twenty one cent interest on the money. I'll death with him. And I had a charge on the buildings. I was so it worked. It's what's more restaurants. Try and make vibe. Yeah. Now imagine if you were trying to open to twenty four you'd have to be in there doing it. That's why basically that's why park hill came along, because I was thirty eight thirty nine. I could've carried on with Caroline doing what we were doing what we would never going to make any. Real live, just about fund, the pension, and that would be it. And someone approached me to go into partnership park. And I didn't like that someone. So the estate agents said, we'll find a backer. What a new by spoke to Derrick, alum, my Bank manager, and he says, find a backer, none approached three all of which were interested. But Jim Ratcliffe used to stay there when he sets up his first petrol chemical company, so at a soft spot for park hill. The with me full celebrating his flotation of that company when he became. A multimillionaire so to SaaS small for me. And so I put in well, I carry on business in and he puts in junk of money, and we will. And that's when we went to the bigger hotel. I was then forty and felt does now on another journey where now to start saving for something else. Something bigger. Okay. And what was that something bigger? You start doing some work in France around sort of grew with, with Jim and because we took partial from nine thousand nine hundred ninety two thousand and four then in that time I negotiated with new forest. Parts, new forest planning and then it became a national park negotiated a massive refurbishment of park hill, and a lot of new buildings as well. I was backed by and Tony Clemson from the tourist board and things to, to, to achieve this. It was it was monumental to get that much planet mission. In the news when it changes to the belong woulda was this is this was the start of line were. And so I worked with the planners, and then with the architects, along with gingy mother, big saying exists his cash, and it was a phenomenal revenue investment. It was sixty million. Could be seventy but it was and it wasn't planned to me that the regional estimate was sixteen million. Wow. But it snowballed. And then, because in two thousand and four we're been have to close that business in order to do all these alterations. I said to Jim Miller, I can't just be on a payroll and not do anything. Plus, I've got some really good people. And I want to keep plus over the five years. We'd rand Paul kill we refer this book, new beds, and things that we just kept it going, and I said, we could do with finding a simpler hotel, or rundown hotel. So we looked at a rundown hotel, which was near was Bramshaw area, and we didn't buy that. So we went for a slightly, simpler, run by husband wife team in Brooklyn Hurst, and. We bought mouth such a lovely transaction, Jim, when spoke to them, because he had a friend who played golf with them, and they were looking to retire, but needed two more years of revenue, to get the retirement and Jim just said, well. What are you were in? They said figure, and they'll say the ad horrified. Say it and off that it valued at one point six million the hope to another one hundred thousand for the next two years to make at one point eight and Jim said, well, there's one point eight and you go at the end of the summer and they dream scenario. It was just it was so nice. I mean, they still come and see me really regulates not under my restaurant, and we're great friends. And so we moved it was an amazing date. So on the takeover. We agreed stock valuation, and their customers went out for the day and some of them were coming back by evening. And by the time they came back their evening. Everything by Walter from park hill, and the poussant plates and crockery and cutlery with shifted, and the menu came in all ready, designed to people came back to a completely to Rostock complete which was, which was fun, enjoyed it, which was because it was a different star. Because normally they'd be. Some sort of closure, I guess, between the between this closure. Okay. And that was the next five years of Michelin star would be rich.

Involvement there where you helping run the ball says we took them on and run we did. And. Sort of the French arm of our business. And we got planning commission there. Just lots of discussions there with the narrow and the architect, and we permission to completely refurbish and Lapita spa and car park. Two stories underground and Bill to new stories wall and a half stories on top. Converted into the best hotel in sixteen. Fifty. Country. This was restaurants restaurants, will the different because the French have much longer kind of history of proper restaurants, trail-blazing, hugely you back in the nineteen eighties. They weren't many Michelin stars in this country was very different going onto onto the French turf. Yes. And because it was a ski resort, and there was a lot of foreign people go to the ski resort. It wasn't. It wasn't true later, French. Yeah. It was it was ski was food. And I have to say, that's since I've left lap. Protests, gone Ford and four forward. Angela heart, along with Robin Hudson developed. It even more in this. Farber noise outside barbecue buffet type thing on it's brilliant.

It's I mean because I have a relative who never locked their doors at their house had their house robbed and still didn't lock their doors after that didn't put an. A system after that. Which is kind of an incredible thing think if your house is actually rob you probably going to be robbed twice. So anyway, simply that you don't like your doors better.

That m- that must have been a really late breaking development because it seems more often than not when these things have been in the works for a long time. They've already lined up who they're going to leak the information to to make sure that the background information about this and other details that they don't actually have to support in public get out there. The fact that there is a one paragraph some Asian, plus the end the only I've been ever since the break I've enough doing nothing but looking at new sources, and no and every single news item is is entirely about what other how this is affecting Intel stock Qualcomm stock. Apple stock Qualcomm is up sixteen percent, sixteen points, rather. Intel took a big dip. It seems to have recovered. Apple is up just a little bit. But yeah, it looks like there are a lot of the basically that Qualcomm made nine point seven billion dollars just on the base. Basis of people knowing that they've settled their lot their their disagreements with apple that shows you Hoover. Here's the thing. It the offer to help. Here's the here's the Qualcomm chart for inter this is today. I think you can see exactly when the announcement was made the market is not closed. Right. It's got another hour to go. So this kind of surprising. They would make this announcement before the market close. And also, we don't know the details in it's amazing the market reacted strongly. Without at least some some form of details. Here. Then based on the way, the market is going as that call come look continue to be able to charge the prices that it charges, which is a huge benefit to Qualcomm in not it's not necessarily any kind of benefits who phone makers like like apples. So I think yeah, I think Silliman is a big deal for Qualcomm because they can they can continue sort of business as usual in into the future. Based on the fact that apple that the two of them came to a settlement. Obviously, we don't know. It was in the settlement. If the settlement was something along the lines of Qualcomm will now reduce the prices at charges for its chips, or it will no longer required. Her a license for for the for the chipsets. I don't know. But it I think the implication is that Qualcomm doesn't have to reduce its prices, which is a big boom. That's the case. I'm sure that you remember apple stock prices is conditioned by a lot of stuff comes a little simpler. And honestly, I think just the removal of this hanging over Qualcomm head no matter what the deal is. And the fact that apple will continue to buy. Qualcomm chips is enough to say for the markets. Does that mean apples to put their modem in the door?.

Let's get to the Muller reported attorney general bar testified before congress this week. And he made quite a stir talking about the investigation of the Trump campaign here he is. I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal to big deal. Yes, I think spying did occur. I am not saying that improper surveillance occurred. I'm saying that I am concerned about it and looking into it. Senator. Do you agree that there should be a full investigation of how the FBI and other intelligence agencies acted in looking into the Trump campaign in two thousand sixteen and then on into two thousand seventeen. Chris what I think the American people want to see I is the release of the malware report. So that we can draw our own conclusions. Do not have to rely on the conclusions of attorney general bar whether relates to the president's involvement what Russia did in our election or have the FBI handled. The investigation we need to see the full report. Yesterday needs to be reductions as it relates to source information or sensitive information that has nothing to do with the president or these issues, but we need to see the report you need to report and the American people need their own conclusions. So we're getting dribs and drabs from the attorney general is two parts of the report. Let us take a look at the full report. Then that's a fair question. They ask. Well. Okay. But you're going to get the report apparently unless the attorney general is delayed by Tuesday. So in the next forty eight hours at the, you know, a lot of people say there are legitimate questions here about how the whole investigation started into. President Trump was their bias on the part of the agents. All kinds of stuff, isn't that a legitimate issue to be brought up as well? You say we're going to get the report and forty-eight hours. I'll wait to see if we get the full report and forty eight hours. I hope that we do we then need to read the report, and the a to understand that then I hope he tells us information more than we have today about Russia's tactics of trying to influence our election. So that we can protect ourselves against future attacks from Russia tells us exactly how the president and his campaign were involved in this. So we can draw our own conclusions. And have the investigation was done. Let let me ask about this. Let's assume and I think it's fair to assume that that attorney general bar is not lying to the American people. He says that according to the report that special counsel said he found no collusion by the president with Russia, and nobody was indicted for that including any of the people around him that a lot of people had talked about and he clearly didn't find overwhelming evidence or preponderance of evidence of obstruction. So is that the best use of Congress's time to continue to argue about. Something that the special counsel investigative for two years. So should you be trying to solve the country's problems? I think Mr. Mueller was looking at a criminal Stanford standard beyond reasonable doubt. So let's again, take a look at the source documents. He did say that there was clear evidence in regards to obstruction of Justice. Whether it reached the standard that it could be proved beyond reasonable doubt is is an issue that he Mr. Mueller did not draw a conclusion, Mr. bar digital conclusion. The American people need now to draw a conclusion remember the principal reason for this investigation is that Russia attacked our democratic system in the two thousand sixteen elections, we need to take steps to prevent us prevent this country from being attacked again and compromise by Russia. This report is going to be very valuable. So that we can take the appropriate steps. Congress pass legislation to deal with this bipartisan legislation. I was involved in crafting that legislation. I would hope that this report will give us additional blueprint. A what we need to do the shore up our protections in America. But also understand how the Trump campaign and Mr. Trump interacted with the Russians Senator carton. Thank you. Thanks for sharing your weekend. Please come back, sir. Thanks,.

The Knicks or the Lakers will to me the obvious answer is the Lakers as presently constituted. Because they've got LeBron. They've got you know, they will be able to track for agents. Now, the Knicks that math could change. Let's see if the if the if the pelicans wait till the summer because what happens before the summer couple of things one is that draft lottery happens. The Knicks are going to have a sixteen percent chance of getting Zion. Williamson sixteen percent chance new draft odds. This year worth four records all get the same or worse. Three records all get the same odds. Knicks be one of those worst records. And so a sixteen percent chance. The number one overall pick and getting Zion. Also might find out Kevin Durant going there. Then all of a sudden, you have a real discussion about which team is in the best position, given the strength of these conference giving Kevin Durant age given hell those two seven foot super freaks would match up playing alongside each other all that changes, the Matt, but as presently constituted, it's the Lakers, and it's not to me even close you talked about Durant being one of the options as far as being here in New York in for people who because that's been out there business partners associated there with the Knicks. This is a market potentially. He would want to visit with free agency. What if they don't get Kevin Durant? What are other options might the Knicks? Have to pair with eighty. So the problem for me is if they don't let us soon, they don't get Durant. And there's an eighty four percent chance. They don't get Zion. So let's assume they don't get Williamson as well. Right. Because the odds are they won't if you only sixteen percent chance, then what type of trade can the Knicks make that is attracted to the pelicans. That doesn't leave the Knicks as the pelicans in New York City meaning team with Anthony Davis and nothing like. The Knicks could include Kristaps. Okay. But then what are they have left? If they don't have Kevin Durant. They get the second or third pick of the draft. Like, why would Anthony Davis wanna go from New Orleans to New York to once again being a rebuild? Nell could the Knicks. He could be there were kyri if they add another free agent. So so there's the other interesting piece is Anthony Davis making this request because he wants to go to the Lakers or is he making this request because he wants to go to the Lakers or anywhere. They can have another star with him because he listened with Kevin Garnett told him, which is Amen. The whole thing change when I went to Boston and one that ring that it's about the way you're going to be looked at is what you were able to do in big moments because Kevin Garnett was in a very similar situation. Generational talent toiling in obscurity. They would get to the playoffs..
"sixteen percent" Discussed on Point of Inquiry
"Thirteen to sixteen percent thirteen to sixteen percents. I'm gonna let that number Singin of high school biology teachers in the United States openly espouse the idea that life was created as it is right now on this planet six thousand years ago. Seven or fewer. Yeah. It's insane. The state for today's interview as birth set. In the teaser thirteen to sixteen percent of the science teachers in America, the high school science teachers in America are teaching creationism the unscientific belief that the earth began six thousand years ago and all the life forms on earth. Today were also created six thousand years ago, two hundred sixty two three hundred and twenty thousand teachers are openly espousing creationism at our public schools. That is scary. The unscientific belief in creationism goals high into the ranks of our government officials here as vice President Mike Pence addressing congress in two thousand and two when he was still a Representative from the state of Indiana the bible. Tells us that God created man in his own image, male and female, he created it. And I believe that Mr Speaker, I believe that God created the known university earth and everything in an including man. And I also believe that someday scientists will come to see that only the theory of intelligent design provides even remotely rational explanation for the known universe. But until that day comes and I have no fear of science. I believe that the more. We study the science the more. The truths of faith will become a parent. I would humbly ask as new theories of evolution find their ways into the newspapers and into the textbooks. Let us demand that educators around America, teach evolution not as fact, but it's theory an interesting theory to boot, but let's also bring into the minds of all of our children all of the theories about the unknowable that some bright. Day in the future through science and perhaps three face. We will find the truth of from whence. We come and I yield back. I would homely point out to the vice president that science has it been verifying religious beliefs for the last five hundred years, it's been rendering them unnecessary. So this is we're at we have elected officials pushing for nonscientific ideas to be taught right alongside of established verifiable science. So what do we do about this whole today? We're gonna talk to someone who is doing something about it Bertha Vasquez was with me in October during psychotic and we had a chat about what the center for inquiry is doing about creationism being taught in the public schools. All right. We are here with Bertha. Vazquez? Did I say your name, right? He You did. did. I love the Tuesay's. Yes. Most people don't people. It's S Z. I've had diploma spelled wrong credit cards. You name it. Would be it would be a huge score a scrabble game. Proper game. It's true. But we are here in Las Vegas, Nevada. At sei con, and what is your topic gonna be at it's about tying up creationism in the classroom. It's about the teacher institute revolutionary science. And that's what we're going to talk to you today about the teacher institute for science. But so do you have a title regarding that will what is your end, the director of the teacher institute from luminary science for the Richard Dawkins foundation for reason in science, which is part of the center for inquiry, but you're also a regular teacher school. I am a fulltime class from teacher in south Florida. And I've been at it for twenty eight years. How old are the kids that I teach middle schoolers twelve thirteen fourteen years old as it a particular subject or do take show right now, I teach honors physical science, which is a ninth grade course to really awesome, seventh graders. And I teach honors biology which is a tenth grade course who those same seventh graders when they get to eighth grade. So they kids are two years ahead in Florida curriculum. Never experienced that myself. Don't believe you. I don't even think they had they call him, AP, classes and natto come. That's later. These kids will be those types of students that are taking a AP and things like that. No, I was there. Our Pete regular placement basis. Well, you're late bloomer their gym, maybe. Okay. Cool. Will you ever regular full-time job? And then you do this ties job. Tell me the story about how ties got started. I love this story. I'm going to ask me that question. So. In two thousand thirteen I I'm a lifelong fan of Richard dockets..
"sixteen percent" Discussed on Ben Greenfield Fitness
"Okay. What they do is slow the rate of that tug of war down. Okay. So so so let's say seal shortens hundred bases. That's lamas will lengthen it twenty basis than shrines another hundred bases than plumbers Langston twenty and another twenty to clarify for folks, you're still on decreasing the rate at which the telomere shortening its shortening lengthening shortening lengthening. Yes. So in fact, you are just really decrease in the rate of shorten, but you're doing it by lengthening, you're not doing it via the method that sale like some of those other things that you alluded to earlier such as meditation or yoga or low stress or sleep might be doing it. Instead, you're directly lengthening it. But then it's it's shortening. And so it's a different way to decrease the rate of shortening really and using the tug of war analogy again, not meditation healthy, diet stuff. Like that is is decrease in the number of people that are pulling on that tug-of-war war rope to shorten. Yep. Okay, decrease. Where's the other lengthened in his adding people to the other side too lengthy? Yes. That makes perfect sense. Okay. So so we we've been actually on a pretty good drector of finding hits our strongest one. So far produces sixteen percent of the amount of two lamas instead of a cell that would be needed to tie. Why have tug of war be a tie? So it's it's sixteen percent is actually pretty good. I mean, I highly recommend people do anything they can to get that much to lamas produce. But it's not enough to actually reverse aging or it could slow it down, the it'd be hard to measure that. But it it definitely won't reverse ageing. And we think that were about maybe one to three years away from finding something that actually will lengthen. And when I say finding we're not just randomly screening where we did maybe for the first two hundred thousand different chemicals, we tested that was random because we we had no idea what to expect. But after finding, you know thirty I guess. I guess we found like nine hundred but we could classify him into thirty seven different families of by looking at their structures. We classify them in three seven different families. And from that information we were able to now start designing new chemicals and that that caused our success rate to increase because now we we weren't just doing random. We were actually designing new chemical data that made it even better when you when you say new chemicals. What are you talking about? Well, every pharmaceutical you've ever heard of is been tested, but also just random chemicals. There's actually companies out there that actually all they do is produce design chemicals, and they they produce novel ones all the time. Just so that companies like us can test them in our high throughput robotic screening lets you pretty much thrown a bunch of stuff at two To Lama Lama race race in. in a cell medium. And seeing what works and what doesn't. That was the original place. Now, we're we're we're not just throwing anything that we're designing things and testing them. And we're finding that our ability to design better things is actually far more productive than just randomly screening. But we're we're about one to three years away from having something that would be potent enough to cause at tug of war to be a tie. And then I think the exciting things happens when we get something even more potent than that and Steelers actually start getting longer then we can start asking question will Betty white become a twenty four year old again, you know, in every way imaginable. That's that's the thing. Now when you do this once you find a chemical is this a chemical than that, a pharmaceutical company would have hired you. And then the pharmaceutical company will purchase that from your role Sierra sciences, simply create this and sell it. I mean, this seems like something that'd be highly profitable for whoever gets their hands on it. If we've found something that can actually induce a an increased activity of telomerase. My policy is that we only do research. And and so even after we do discover something that's a potent enough to win that tug of war. I still want to license it to some other company, and let them do all the marketing and stuff like that. We still want. I still wanna find even stronger things or do testing..
