Were We Funding Gain-of-Function Research in Ukraine?
"With us right now is key throws, Keith, I'm gonna ask you very bluntly simply in plainly. Were we engaging or funding in gain of function research in Ukraine? That's a good question, Charlie. I think we were engaged in funding bioweapons labs in Ukraine. What they were doing there, I don't know. But I do believe that it's going to show if we ever get the information out. That the bioweapons labs that are in Ukraine were funded in whole or at least in part by the United States. And so walk us through it. Walk us through how many laboratories there are. How common is this Keith? You know, you're very well educated and well traveled. You've been in lots of different theaters doing lots of different sorts of things. Is it common for us just to stand up kind of funding operations of biochemical research, especially next to foreign adversaries? I'm going to jump into history for a second because it'll explain this to you. And it's something that you and I both have a big concern about. And that's the great reset. The bioweapons labs, you look at them and you think, why is Ukraine important? And I started asking myself this. Friends of mine, one dear friend who passed rich Higgins. We talked about this at great length. Why is Ukraine so important? And if you look back at their history, western Ukraine was an integral part of the Nazis during World War II of the system. The SS had bases there. They had headquarters there. In fact, the hundreds of thousands of Jews killed and Ukraine were killed by western Ukrainians. And the reason I say that is after the war, Alan dulles, former director of the CIA back in the day, helped several German scientists Nazi scientists go to Ukraine to avoid the Nuremberg trials. So let's go fast forward today. Again, I ask you, why is Ukraine important? Well, what we're seeing and there's a lot of information that shows this is we're seeing a lot of certain type of illnesses or diseases, things that we don't normally see have major outbreaks in Ukraine. There's a lot of open-source reporting on this, and I can send you the links to the last 5

"This stardust. That i'll be happening. I have you been able to perform any of these songs with with a live band. I did so. I was I got about a week. And a half of album released touring before the world shutdown. I bet that just took it. Adia ten i mean. It's a terrible way to celebrate under But it was sort of. It is such a different experience. And i can. I'm sure that you'll talk to a lot of song. Writers who are are used to just being alone in their room for the most part with their guitar and then all of a sudden when you have to like flex this bill new muscle of listening to other people and communicating. What you hear in your head elliott assume everybody else does is very different from recording. I think i probably enjoy the process of recording. More than performing. Do you think it is about that. Do you think you're really detail oriented. And that's why i think so. And i like the. There's you know there's something nice about catching lightning jar and then having that forever preserved the out of record and just sorta like listening and It's so different. And it's so much fun just gathering people that can all be on the same stage together so actually. I've started a new record already. We turned hatha my house of do a recording studio in may for a couple of weeks and Some friends came down from nashville and some local people played on it and today there were actually cutting keys. Would ben element out in la Who played on the new mattias album which is also really great. Okay it's all day. I've just been checking. my email. Tally do is check. Email is check my email and listen to the things. Ooh that sounded good. Try this try. That's amazing so just do a little key. Run recorded it off yet. That gets the green light more of that. Do some more. And that's kind of how that process goes. That's such a fascinating thing. It didn't What was that band. That did that every they never got together personally. Postal service postal service. Was that one or the other project yet. And they kind of did it in the my space days when it wasn't as easy. Yeah well we were all all in the room for like the basic tracking. So we're given the ben who's playing keys you know a good feeling to run with when it's your songs. Do you have a You hear the other instruments as well or do you. Just let the people kind of do what they want. And then you're like that's it yet. I think Here based on recording. Playing live i think is totally different. Because you know. I think i perform live. I slowed things down a lot with the vans. You sort of want to get them to rock out a little bit. It's more fun to play with. Whereas when i'm alone on stage by myself i can look people in the eye and you know sorta start building Mood of that's a little bit different either that or may get real awkward just by focusing on the one person my goal typically is to get whoever's talking or not paying attention to really key as a fa most standpoint of someone performing. That's always. I think that's a good place to be all right. Well tim higgins. He's got this album blyth out and it sounds like we've got some more coming i am. I've got one more question and it is. Why can't every day be a party. And what does the message. You're trying to get across in this song. Because i'm a big fan of these lyrics. I listen to this one really closely. But i wanted to hear your kind of idea behind.

Abc taps one of michelle young's bachelorette suitors to be the next bachelor. And here's the crazy thing. Us weekly can confirm now. We're not confirming but us weekly has confirmed while guys. We are not gonna know who we are not going to know anything about this bachelor until he's already filming because if they go according to their regular filming schedule which starts in mid to late september We will not be meeting him until we will be meeting him until michelle season. Premiers on october nineteenth. So this guy is going to be filming for about a month before we get to even get to know anything about him which is interesting So these girls are going to be on his season or going in blind. And wow you have to believe that. Like spoiler is going to get out there. Like we're gonna get spoilers and then we're going to know the guy is. We're going to do a whole bunch of bunk social media research on you and i'll be talking about him but like as far as his presence on the show will know nothing about that. This comes as a result us tyler. Cameron wasn't talks but not not going to be the lead and then from katie season. We had Michael a and justin. And i guess andrew is possibly in the running greg who was like wrongly rumor there to the bachelor for awhile all them not going to be The bachelor either. Well here's my. Here's my thought i think this. I think this is wrong because the girls didn't know what like they were going into. They did not go there for him. They went there to be on. The bachelor is still think. Michael is gonna be the bachelor. I still think. I still think that like the show is gonna find a way to get him to be the bachelor and this is all a rumor. That's my theory because none of this makes sense and they need bachelor season to be very successful like they need it. And i don't think this is the way to make it successful in her unless this guy is so incredible that they know that we're going to be obsessed with him on the batch on on michelle season possibly but i mean. I think everybody was kind of that. Way with michael as so. Let's let's back up the brinks truck to them and figure out a way to bring his son to filming. Let's make this happen anyways.

Let's not really talk about it because there's so much for us to process that it's like not really helpful or let's dive into it and try to work through but it felt like joe's care for brendon is so strong.

Obviously i did say that what we knew was going to happen or maybe this last week actually last day i said they were gonna get more followers than this. I was wrong so wrong. This was shocking to me. That bachelor nation actually did the opposite to them. Like i never saw that coming. I've never seen that happen. Like typically even the biggest villains the ones that shake stuff up the most still get more followers for doing that. I did not expect them to lose followers. I was wrong. And i have to admit that.

Hey let's stop just badmouthing them. Let's actually go to them now. Did it need to be eight. People fellow little aggressive but everybody was interested. Everybody was into it. It got pretty hostile. And i felt like brennan piper. Both immediately.
What Is Going on With OnlyFans?
"I was going to talk about the events situation at the top of this week. Show but the only fan situation seems resolved itself only fans is a platform where people can subscribe to content creators who then share exclusive photos and videos on the side. It's a site worth billions. Thanks to the sex workers and porn performer. The platform marketed itself to recruited when it first launched in two thousand sixteen and then a week ago only fans announced it was banning all sexually explicit content from its site because banks credit card. Companies processors were forcing them to they reversed course in a week. Only fans turned around and said a week later. Basically we hear you and announced that they weren't gonna ban sexually explicit content after all and would no longer be pivoting who. I don't know what what they plan to pivot to the week. Before last based tune teenagers doing lip syncs and cooking tutorials and other shit people can get for free on youtube and dick doc right now. How are you going to make money at that. But that was their plan a week and a half ago. What seems to have made the difference here. And what. I see as a sign of real progress the new york times washington post. Cnn daily papers. Npr mainstream publications went to sex workers and porn stars to get quotes about how only fans was doing to them. What facebook and instagram and craigslist had already done to them and how this being driven off the internet was making their lives harder and sex work more dangerous not a radical sex work not ending it just making it more dangerous. That's new and it made a huge difference. Abigail higgins has a terrific piece at the lily. Sex workers rallied together when only fans band sexually explicit content.

The Epic Court Battle That Could Upend Apple's Future
"Talked on the show before about developer fees. Those are the commission's usually around thirty percent. That app store owners take from purchases made through their marketplaces. Some developers have pushed back against these fees. Saying there too high while store owners like apple and google have argued that the fees are necessary to keep transactions secure. This debate is the subject of a court battle between apple and the creator of fortnight epic games which kicks off today. The outcome of the trial will have ramifications for apple. And the rest of the tech giant's so for more on this. I'm joined by our apple reporter tim higgins. Hey tim thanks for being here. Thank you all right before we get started we should note that the wall street journal's publisher dow jones has a commercial agreement to supply news apple services. Okay so tim can. You remind us how we got to the trial that starts today. There's actually quite a dramatic backstory. Here right now. This is a clash of the titans. If you will it goes back to last august and the creator of fortnight epic games surprised a lot of people with an update to the fort game on the apple app store that aim to create a payment system. That would get around apple's payment system. They'll allow users to go into an epic games created pay system and that was a huge violation of apple's rules and it resulted in fortnight being booted from the app store and what followed was a pretty big legal battle that we now are seeing take place in a courtroom in oakland california and so as the court case. Kicks off today like you said in oakland. What's really the central question of this case. What is this all about. There's a few things going on here. Epic feels that apple is using. Its power anti competitive way specifically. They argue that apple has this delivery device or distribution device for apps on iphones and that it's one hundred percent controlled by them and that that is a monopoly in a bad sense and that they're misusing that power so what this case comes down to a large way is the definition of what a market is in the digital

And it's actually something you yourself have been instrumental in preserving not only with this wonderful retrospective of her work but also as a co director of groundbreaking fashion school which we are going to discuss a little bit later on in this conversation. But i i would just love if you start by introducing us to your mother's early life and formative years perhaps even starting with the very event that earned her her name will curiously enough. My mother was not born in manila. She was she wasn't born in the big city. She was born in one of the provinces in the gospel famous where a douglas mcarthur landed. A returned some. She was born in in the province to very conservative. Pure chinese other very conservative. Good gas victorian catholic milder so how she turned out the way she did. Is anybody's guess. And it was the era because my grandfather was chinese. It was the era of big families. So there were many siblings seven of them altogether but there were two or three other. Babies died of childbirth or soon after an apparently my mother was one of them because her her name when she was born or the name given to her was an amanda jones but then apparently she told me as a baby she got sick and she claims she died and so they were preparing this baby for burial in cleaning the baby and a chinese relative appears knocking on the door with some mysterious madison and ministers to the baby and she started to turn radan started crying so my grandmother being the good catholic named her salvi.

Could We See a New Cold War With China
"It is perhaps difficult to altogether. Suppress an amount of derisive mirth. When the people's republic of china inveighs against the unfairness of a world subject to the whims of omnipotent higgins president xi jinping earlier made a series of statements to this effect also making some pointed remarks about the united states using its mighty commercial power to advance its political interests as such treachery obviously has never even occurred to beijing. G speech wasn't obvious enough. Challenge to the newish administration of president joe biden but what are biden's options for response joined with more on this by isabel hilton. Ceo of china dialogue is a bill. How reassured should we be at this point. The china does not it turns out which to become any kind of global amman. Heavens did really terrible source. china Which is to mark the end of the us reign as the global head. Jamin but isn't quite ready to step up so if you look at cheese speech what he what he made fairly clear was that because of geography china was an important regional power and that was a bit of a shot across the bows of japan and perhaps the philippines who've been making unfriendly noises and japan and the united states said had already just this week Agreed that they would work to counter some of china's behavior in the region but the idea that china is ready to take on the kind of global leadership in the way. The united states is exercised. It is is a little premature. I think so it. This is an exercise in containment. Cise in trying to discredit us. Leadership and to discredit the sort of values norms of a global order which china repeatedly claims were set up by just a few powers and china wasn't one of them at the time
Cuomo refuses to resign despite calls from top New York Democrats
"Unprecedented political isolation, A defiant New York governor Andrew Cuomo insisted today he would not step down in the wake of sexual harassment allegations. And condemned the expensive coalition of Democrats calling for his resignation as reckless and dangerous Politicians who don't know what single fact. But yet form a conclusion and then opinion Are, in my opinion, reckless and dangerous. My days in the three term Democratic governor had lost the support of almost his stake entire congressional delegation. None of the defections hurt more than those of New York's two United States. Senators, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. And Senator Kirsten Gillibrand due to the multiple credible sexual harassment and misconduct allegations. It is clear that Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of his governing partners and the people of New York, the Democratic senators wrote in a joint statement. Governor Cuomo, they said, should resigned. The embattled governor's comments came on the day his party in New York and beyond turned sharply against him following allegations of harassment and sexual misconduct as well as Sweeping criticism of Cuomo for keeping secret how many nursing home residents had died of covert 19 for months. Cuomo's growing list of detractors now covers virtually every region in the state and the political power centers of New York City in Washington. Majority of the Democrats in the state legislature, all but a handful of the state's 29 member congressional delegation of called on him to step down. White House press secretary Jen Psaki today declined to say where they're buying believes Cuomo should resign, she said. Every woman who has come forth about harassment by the New York governor deserves they have her voice heard should be treated with respect and should be able to tell her story. Essence of Democrats had already called on Cuomo to resign this week. But the coalition or critics expanded geographically and politically today to include the likes of New York City progressives, US representative Alexandria of Casio Cortez, leader of the House Democratic Campaign arm, representative Sean Patrick Maloney, Buffalo based U. S. Representative Brian Higgins and a group of Long Island based state lawmakers who had been Cuomo loyalists and New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio joined in that it's not one. It's not too. It's not three. It's not Ford's not fighters. Six women who have come forward is deeply troubling this specific allegation. The governor called an employee it of his someone who he had power over, called them to a private place and then sexually assaulted her. Is absolutely unacceptable. It is disgusting to me, and he can no longer serve as governor. De Blasio and Cuomo have frequently been at odds. Never before has the 63 year old Democratic governor. The son of a New York governor himself been more politically alone. Cuomo today insisted he never touched anyone inappropriately and said again that he's sorry if he ever made anyone uncomfortable. Declined to answer a direct question about whether he's had a consensual romantic relationship with any of the women.
How Does When You Are Born Affect Who You Are?
"Does when you were born affect who you are in my econometrics class or talking about instrumental variables and one thing. That has come up. Is that while you may think that the time of year someone is born is a great random variable that can be used to make more robust estimates. It turns out that when the year you were born is actually correlated with things like parents income or mental health outcomes. Is it true that people born at different times of the year different does this mean. Horoscopes are in fact valid. Thanks alkaline so the way. I would think about this. Is there at least two major dimensions. One is that the time of year born or more broadly. The year you're born in what's going on in the world then may have some natural ish effect but then there's a very different dimension which is how the time you were born again. What's going on in the world where the environment can change your outcome. And that gets even more complicated. Because then we're talking about parental behavior and that parental behavior may be pre or postnatal. And so on. I don't know how much your parents or your family care about. The traditional chinese zodiac. But i am curious. What sign you were born under and how it's influenced your life. I am the year of the dog and everybody has good things to say about their year but the year to be is apparently the year of the dragon. I'm not a dragon so my parents. I'm quite sure did not plan my birth around the lunar calender. That's fairly because i'm told by my sister that i wasn't planned at all boy. Okay i'm not going to get into that but it seems as though there are quite a few chinese and chinese american parents who do delay birth to the year of the dragon. Yes because there's a spike in births. Among certain communities across the globe during that year. I find this research on the year of birth according to lunar calendar in cultures that really respect that mind blowing. I remember when my grandmother passed away. This is my mother's mother. Apparently they had to wait for a lucky day to bury her and that was months away so they they waited. Wow there's also some research suggesting that in addition to the decisions like to have a child or one to have funeral that actually life outcomes can be influence because of parents expectations and amount. They invest in their children's education etcetera. But i do know that. Children born in the year of the dragon to chinese or chinese american families that they do get more education. They have better lifetime outcomes than non dragging your children. We did do an episode about this years ago with freakonomics radio but according to that research it is on the parents guide which is basically once. You've got a dragon in the family. You invest a lot in that kid. Is that your understanding. That is my understanding if you are living in a culture where someone says hey. This is the lucky year. And then you're lucky enough to be having a kid that year. Then maybe when you're making decisions about whether one is gonna get extra tutoring give it to the lucky kid right because you know there are dragon but also would there be a little bit of something like endowment effect there like this. Is the child that we created on our timetable and therefore we feel a little bit more invested in this one not so much because they might be lucky because this is how we planned. Oh absolutely. I don't think it's necessarily that you give the child. The extra tutoring because you think the child is luckier. But because their dragons and they're going to do more with that tutoring the research that it made me think about is in psychology and it was by bob. Rosenthal have you heard of the pygmalion effect. Yes my fair lady. Yeah probably more people have heard of my fair lady than teak malian or the pig melon effect but the original play was called pygmalion and that was of course after the greek myth that pygmalion created a statue. That was so beautiful that he fell in love with it. But the plot of my fair lady. You have elisa doolittle who needs to get rid of one lower class british accent. In order to acquire a higher class british accent. And the reason. I bring this up. And the reason why the psychological research was called the two million. It's just that the expectations. Not only that you have for yourself right. Not only eliza doolittle's expectations for herself. But actually henry higgins her teacher his expectations for her. We're going to put the thumb on the scale of her destiny and if he thought that she was going to do great maybe he would act in ways. That would actually make that prophecy. Come true so. These are behavioral components and belief and preference components. Let's go back for second to the biology question. I don't know much about this. I've done a little reading. I'm curious to know if you know more but in terms of biology the month of year that you're born to the season that you're born. I have seen some arguments that to me. Look between week and mixed that there is a strong effect. I read one piece. For instance argued that babies born in the spring are more prone to optimism but also more prone to depression. And i realize they're not polar opposites necessarily but it does make me feel like some of this thinking may be like i said somewhere between week and mixed but i'm not ready to dismiss it in part because there's been so much interesting science in the last ten twenty years on circadian rhythms and how real they are. According to time of day so month of year might also have similar effects. I'm curious if you know or think anything about that. I know very little but it would be hard for me to believe that the time of year that you're born which of course has its own particular is for how long the days were versus the nights and also by the way other things like the availability of nutrients vegetables being in or out of season of course less relevant these days because we can get our strawberries year round but i wouldn't be surprised if any of these effects were huge. I can maybe imagine a small with tranquilly but nothing large because there's so many other things that would swamp the effect of you know it was a six hour daylight day versus an eight hour daylight
Brittany Higgins Files Police Report on Parliament House Rape Claim
"Almost a not. Australia has been transfixed by the story of brittany hagans. The former political stuff who alleges she was raped in a minister's office inside parliament house more allegations against the same men have followed along with ongoing rounds of recriminations about how badly brittany higgins case was handled all giving rise to the clear impression that something is very wrong in parliament house on stephen smiling. And i'm angie lovelock and today on the signal the case that might just trigger some desperately needed reform women in australian politics. Okay so it's it's been a couple of weeks. Maybe you could take back to the moment when this story broke. Yes so it was the first monday of this sitting fortnight around eight o'clock the morning. This is clear armstrong. She's the national political reporter at the daily telegraph newspaper based in parliament. House in canberra. An article appeared on newstalk today written by a journalist code cement the maiden and she Published the allegations of brittany higgins question of where the parliament housing camera is a safe workplace for women is again in the headlines following allegations that a young government staff member was raped in minister's office in an interview with news dot com dot. Au higgins claimed. She felt forced to choose between reporting the assault to police or keeping her dream job. Britney alleges that she was raped by a maiocco lake in the office of now defense minister linda reynolds and The instant reaction i would say was one of complete and utter shock. This abject failure to provide a safe place of work here in parliament and in politics more. Broadly has got to come to an. I think there is. I called for problem inside this building. I've spoken about it many times. I think for far too long young. Women have copped the brunt of the culture in this place and it's time we cleaned it up often beak political scandal type stories us saved until the monday of a sitting week. Because of course you have all of the politicians in cambra unable to escape the issue which was pretty much exactly why that story was published when it was but then quite quickly became apparent that this was going to be a really huge issue. More than i think what people may be realized at that moment because of course she was also booked. This brittany was also booked to appear on the project that night and give a full kind of unfettered account of what she was alleging. And that's really how it kicked off really starting the week with the most possible drama. I think i've had since. I've been camera eighteen months. Welcome back to this special edition of the project tonight. Claims of ripe roadblocks to a police investigation and a young woman forced to choose between her career and the pursuit of justice. And it all happened right in the heart of our democracy as you said clear. It broke on the monday of the start of this session. But the details of britain higgins allegations relate to twenty nineteen. What does she say happened in. What happened back then when she first talked about it. Yeah absolutely so her. Her allegation dates back to sort of the friday. Saturday of of twenty dead of much in two thousand nineteen And brittany alleges that when she was out at a with colleagues drinking at one point The the man she alleges raped her. She says through the night he'd hurler drink. She realized she was quite drunk. Wanted to home. I notice that he was buying meal out of drinks. And i was just sort of job. Well done kind of broadly being rewarded in a weird way. So would you say you were drunk when you decided to go home obsolete. She says it was suggested that because they lived in the same direction. They should share cab when she was in that cab he said i've got to pick something up from parliament on the way i and she goes along with it ends up being signed dean to parliament. Neither of them have their passes. It's quite light after hours. They have to sign themselves. Will he. signs. Both of the men go into the office. She says she would feel well. She laid down and she alleges that she wake up with with demand on top of that i woke up mid ripe essentially. I don't know why i knew. He was almost finished. But i felt like it had been going on for a while or that. He was done. He was sweaty. I couldn't get him off of me at this point. I started crying fast. Forward to the the the start of the workweek she. She comes to work and immediately. The issue is initially traded as security breach because obviously Linda reynolds was defense industry minister at the time a lot of classified important information potentially in that office so she learns pretty quickly that the male stafa involved in these instant has already been had their employment terminated over these potential security breach and she's brought into a series of formal employment meetings to discuss. What is that time. Believed to be a security breach felt like a disciplinary meeting. It was we've been made aware of the events in that. You guys were here after hours. And you know that's not acceptable She of course then disclosed to her boss when reynolds what she alleged happened to her and that also then led her going to the afp.

"To you. Get kind of a thing you brought so much like so different is different from the stuff in the marbles edgy done. Frankly fact that. I don't know if you know that about. I've never heard that that's i. I didn't know anyone paid attention to any way that i that's awesome to hear. I know i wasn't grossed. I just read this. And i'm like oh man. How long is he going to make us. Wait to get the origin of this black hole and everything where these powers come from. So i mean yeah. Yeah that's That's part of the fun of it all to be honest because as far as how powers were What the history of them are one of the things that i struggled with unpowered rangers after i let As i was the book you'll notice that the early portions in my run are very high school clique. Drama kind of centric Stuck with cam dad on their stuff with the billion his mom And humor jason's parents really factored into mino ryan stuff with With them but as the as things really ramped up the shattered grid what became shattered grade. It was like all that kinda goes away. And what i realized is i even had thought at the time man if i ever did more power rangers like i don't know how do it because it's really hard to go back to normal small town kind of earth stories. When you just gone done this huge events and you went cosmic. And so i kind of have that mind with radiant black like how do i. How do i avoid that problem in. What i kind of realized is that. Probably no surprise that i made the solicits that the radiant Black hole itself does come from cosmic origins. So the idea that there could perhaps these cosmic threats is probably not all that surprising. Hopefully here otherwise. Sorry spoiler but there's probably gonna be causing breads. However if i'm gonna say i'm gonna i'm gonna say this now in do this and watch like on breaking my own rule but right now my thinking is that We won't know anything about what's out there. Cosmetically beyond what nathan knows stood at means that if and when to cosmic comes into the forefront or comes into the book You nathan will deal with it accordingly. And then you go back to what you know because it's because it's It's it's what you're reality is you know i can do. Some more of those smaller stories interspersed with perhaps some bigger interstellar stories as well did i hear. Are there things to be spinning out of this book. Also eventually like different characters or maybe even the other other folks and stuff i mean. It's it's always possible if plans are announcements yet while not there's nothing i can speak to at the moment Literally this moment But sure i mean there. There's always superfund possibilities there. And you know. I have a lot of experience. Kind of shepherding. Some some stuff like this Thanks to the rangers years So you know. It's something that. I really wants your brand out pass. Just you know like this being more super here. i think that's speculation and beat up. So while i'm i'm i'm very excited about about that. And that the the prospect of that as well so Yeah we'll we'll We'll see what happens. Yeah i would say just keep your eyes on the stands in solicits and announcements and things of that nature in on the radio black side in particularly we in particular we still have Several pretty cool surprises up our sleeves. before he she won't even comes out so we'll We'll we'll see we'll see what happens. In what one of them might be one or two of might be after the issue comes out but but Yeah we're gonna be pushing the envelope and and looking to do some Some some cool things but is it is it just so freeing doing your own like creator owned character like other you know with the power rangers or even dc or marvel stuff. It's just like you know you gotta worry about you. Know fans get die hard like down. There in the corner are they. Gonna you know. Y'all do this on power rangers but now it's like radiant black. You're the you're the word you know. Yeah yeah. I'm literally dealing with some notes on a project today from rights holders and it's like okay i see where they're coming from From a storytelling standpoint. It's a huge bomber But you know you make you figure out ways to make to make things work but it is as you say. Very much is a compromise Some of the time or a lot of time anyway whereas On something like reading black. It's it's it's what i wanted to be. What marcelo and i want it to be. You know we have small little teams marcello myself. It's beco- who's our letter. And then it's michael who's our editor slash. Designer will probably bring a color on at some point just because it's so much labor right now on marcello but but still like it's a tight little group. I little core and that means that were able to really kind of very quickly amongst ourselves in the try different things and it's so much fun it's so liberating your hand pick your crew over there like a list for suggestion. That's the thing about image. It's all on you like. I shouldn't say it's all on you what i mean. Is you call the shots like if you bring in a full team you bring in a full team you need. You need an artist but beyond artist A color artists of color is a letter. Like design and things like that like image will totally do that with you or for you if you don't wanna bring your own designer. I haven't designer that i love Who's also the editor on the book. So and i knew. I wanted to do both Synergy there especially. Because it's it's michael basuto did he's he. Does the ranger danger podcasts. So he already like we. Did we worked together on podcast. And things like a time for several years now and he knows all the touch points that i'm looking at as well influence wise already black because he's also an amazing designers. Just the integration so seemless in an easy but But yeah. I mean if i didn't wanna bring a man i've found image could have helped there for sure but And then on the marketing side. I do a ton so But yeah like there are. There are also things we're like on the marketing side like they have people that we're gonna do like a video and social graphics stock but we kind of wanted to do a marcel just to keep all the same visual design. Aesthetic insistent That's that's just because we're like crazy control freaks and it gets to be you know gets to be absurd hard but i mean i think it's paid off even you're talking about the art. I mean i think you're our team is really done you a favor. Because it's like before they even get to your story. You can see that on the stand and say oh. What's that are going to pick that up. look you know. check this out. Yeah we yeah. We were really. I was really really diligent about covers and about finding and working with quality illustrator in cover artists..
Scientists Have Found Some Truly Ancient Ice, But Now They Want Ice That's Even Older
"It's chilly across the country today. Highs of just fifty eight in miami and sixteen in minneapolis which makes minnesota colder than an arctic as mcmurdo station but the cold weather doesn't last forever in the twin cities and in antarctica. It does ice their last hundreds of thousands even millions of years and as npr's nell greenfieldboyce reports that makes an arctic the perfect place to find some of the oldest ice in the world. Just how old is the oldest ice. On earth john higgins says. Nobody really knows you know. Would i be surprised at this point. We had five million-year-old is i mean. I'd be surprised. But not it's not unfathomable i think he and some colleagues recently collected ice samples in antarctica. That were later analyzed and shown to be as old as two point six million years. It's beautiful stuff when you pull out. The is it. Essentially as crystal clear accepted filled with tiny bubbles the bubbles contain air from when the ice formed and this trapped air is what scientists are really after higgins says if you want to understand how gases like carbon dioxide have affected the climate throughout history. You know you can't really do better other than getting a time machine and going back in time and taking an air sample then using these ice cores which physically just trap samples of ancient air to release that ancient air. All you have to do is melt the ice. That's the sound of a research camp manager in antarctica making drinking water by melting scraps of two hundred thousand year old ice in a metal pot to actually collect an analyze the release gases however ancient is has to melt in a lab. Sarah shackleton studies old princeton where she gets to watch the trapped air bubble out and that is something that i don't know if i'll ever get sick of watching. It's actually like pretty mesmerizing and one thing. That's released surprising every time to muse. Just how much gas is actually in the ice. She says it's a lot and samples from time. Periods undergoing past climate changes could be used to help make predictions about the future. One of the biggest questions in terms of kind of the modern warming and look anthropogenic. Climate changes helmich warming. Do should we expect with the amount of co two that we have in the atmosphere now. Antarctica has been covered by an ice sheet for at least thirty million years. But it's actually pretty hard to find really old ice. John gooch is a geologist. At the university of minnesota he says while snowfalls constantly add new layers of ice to the top of the ice sheet the oldest layers at the bottom can disappear. That's because of geothermal heat coming up from the ground so the rocks are giving off heat of slowly over time and so that has the potential to melt ice at the bomb. Still bits of super old ice like that two point six million year old sample can sometimes be preserved at the ice sheets edges the older snippets of ice. That we've been able to find come from places where the ice has flowed up against a mountain range and been exposed at the surface in those spots though. The ice can be all jumbled up and messy. It's not nice layers that have been laid down sequentially over a long continuous stretch of earth's history to get a neatly layered ice sample like that. Scientists need to drill straight down through the thick icesheet so far the oldest ice collected that way goes back eight hundred thousand years. Gooch says the goal now is to drill down a couple of miles to reach ice. That's older a million to two million years old whether or not we'll be able to find it at the bottom of the ice sheet where we can recover a relatively simple continuous record. Is i guess. That's the sixty four thousand dollar question at team from china has drilling underway a group from europe. We'll start in november. What everyone wants is i-i samples that cover a key time period about a million years ago. When there was a dramatic shift in the planet cycle of ice ages. Those had been coming every forty thousand years or so but for some reason that pattern ended and it changed to every one hundred thousand years instead unto us working on climate. That's a really big deal. Eric wolf is a climatologist with the university of cambridge in the united kingdom. It's a really big question as to why that change is fundamental tower climates. Work in a way you could say. We don't really understand today's climate. If we don't understand why we live in one hundred thousand year will draw the forty thousand year world. The coronavirus pandemic basically ruins the arctic research season. That would've been happening now but starting next fall researchers will be backed down there searching for really old ice nell greenfieldboyce npr news.
Miami-Dade Commissioners Will Appoint New Commissioner To Replace Levine Cava
"Miami Dade commissioners continue playing musical chairs is they're set to approve a new commissioner to the District eight seat being vacated by Mayor Daniella Levin. Cava. After divided board vote 75 against hosting a $1 Million special election commissioners are expected to appoint a new commissioner today. But Commissioner Joe Martinez says he'll continue the fight for an election because you can't put a price on democracy. And this gives the incoming commissioner an unfair advantage for the next election because they're gonna be in office for two years without having to be in front of the voters without having to put your name up there. The top contender is fellow Democrat Danielle Cohen Higgins, a lawyer whose campaign manager also ran Cavazos mayoral race. Other candidates include commission Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa and Palmetto Bay Vice Mayor John Du Bois, Wendi Grossman, NewsRadio 16, the B U, Y. O D.
2 Pac-12 football games canceled as virus problems linger
"It's not that much of a surprise, but here we are about halfway through the college football season games are getting called off left and right because of the pandemic. Ain't Higgins to The Wall Street Journal has been following this story all fall and joins us now laying there have been game's canceled before now. But this weekend's L s U Alabama matchup seems to be the most impactful one yet. Yes. Yes, And it's funny because this is a game where last year it was down to the gates of the century between number one Alice, you and number three Alabama and you know you look a little bit different this year. Alabama's number one and L s U is currently not Frank. But the issue is that you know, this is a major rivalry game that was going to be on prime time television and because of an outbreak it Ellis you. They currently don't have any scholarship, tight ends or long staffers available and they're down to just one scholarship quarterback and you know, to be fair to you, Jason leave. The quarterback that's available has played before, and he's great, but It's really hard to say the football game with just one quarterback, because if he goes down, you're kind of out of luck. And I think that this is emblematic of kind of just the trends that are going out of the country and that coronaviruses spiking and a lot of places and Trouble seeing that reflected on cultural bar rafters. Now the S E C was one of the first conference is to dive right back in there. They surprised by what's going on. Well there, commissioner. Great. Thank you said he is shaken but not deterred. And aside from sounding like a martini order, I think he's right in that the Way that the season was designed. They were supposed to be flexibility built in and that most of the schools are planning on playing 10 games over the course of about 12 or 13 weeks and with some flexibility on making up games and you know to this point Yes, you see, has been able to do that without too many disruptions. Previously, when Florida had a big outbreak. I think they moved around six games involving 17 to make sure that every team could put there. Gains in But the problem with L s U Alabama is that Was used already had to move one of its games because the Florida game got postponed. So that's now being played on December. 12 and Ellis You in theory has December 19th open as Saturday, but That's the same Saturday at the S E. C championship. And right now it's looking like Alabama might have a game that day. So in order for L s U and Alabama and meet its Probably gonna have to be some moving around of the schedule. And there's been some talk of playing next week and having ls use game against Arkansas. I believe be pushed around and being a couple games, and I think you know if you're really a puzzle master, there's a way to do it. But it would require moving several games at this point to get L s U and Alabama to play and if they don't play, this would be the first SEC came Steve. No
Brandon Marshall on Browns chemistry now that Odell Beckham Jr is out for season due to ACL tear
"Shifting toward top story this morning news that we did all fear Odell Beckham junior lost for the season with a torn, left ACL. Keep in mind this is the third significant injury in Dell's career. This one has him out the remainder of the season head coach, Kevin Stephens, address the injury, and where the five and to Cleveland browns go from here. And Adele the energy brings the practice energy. He brings the Games you can't you can't No one else can bring that type of juice but. It's it's our job to find the guys that that can go compete that we can go put them in sponsor they can succeed. And I think. We'll be able to do that. That's not easy. Don't WANNA have to And I'm very disappointed for Odell. But that's the nature of this beast at injuries are part of this game and doesn't mean that many of us have to like it, but we do have to deal with it. Brandon. Brandon. How do expectations change now for the browns with Oh bj gone for the rest of the year Yeah I mean. They really don't change much. They should actually be better. Now this is unfortunate. Odell is a great player. It's it's going to be hard to replace his talent. You're going to miss them in moments you're gonNA, miss his playmaking ability. You're GonNa Miss, those times one to one going to miss those times where he breaks three four tackles and he can possibly. Get you back in a game or possibly even win one or two ball games but this team will be better because I believe there's no chemistry and no continuity. Well, we actually we all know that there's no chemistry and continuity. When you're dominant number one wide receiver, you put so much pressure on the play caller. You put so much pressure on the quarterback I experienced this throughout my career and I had. To learn how to communicate with quarterback communicate with the play caller because if you get an play callers, did they get out of rhythm and that's not what you want. You want that play caller to feel good about what he's dowling up. You also want that quarterback to be free think freely when he's dropping back going through the offense going through progressions. If he has one on one, he has landry on this. On this side. Well, people are going to say, well, why don't you throw del well, maybe two quarterback wants to go to Landry. So for that reason I think, Baker, will be better. He has a Guy Higgins that he has great chemistry with going back to his rookie year landry is his guy I think Baker will be better. There's going to be a lot of pressure on him to really work his offense now but now we're going to see if he is the real deal. So. If, if Landry's is guy, he's not, he's not having a bad year but he's on his spectacular year and I've heard you say though a wide receivers best friend is the other wide receiver because it takes them defensive pressure off him. But so far he's got zero touchdowns. He's actually thrown for more touchdowns than he's caught. So why do you expect Jarvis to be better and not worse? Well. It's more so about the offense I'm looking at. Them. Having success as an often when you look at Landry's banged up, he has a broken rib. He's been dealing with that but it could be because they've been they had too much emphasis on other guy on Odell trying to figure out how to get him going. So when that trade deadline come up, they're not trading him they actually find a way to make it work. So there's so many different reasons but I want this play caller to feel free and get into a rhythm I. Want this quarterback to drop back and go to his guys this team. How they win is on the ground and play action, but they're going to need to win throwing a ball like they did this past week sometimes in the national football league.
Women's March in Washington, D.C.
"Are pretty routine in Washington, we're used to them. But today we have two women's marches at opposite ends of the mall. And opposite ends of the spectrum. Let's talk about these two marches. The first one is called the march for all Women. This is going to take place in the steps of the U. S. Supreme Court later on today, and the same is it I'm with her, but the her in this case, Rick is not Hillary Clinton. You recall that you used that phrase in her 2016 campaign. The herd this time is Judge Amy Cockney Barrett as she's waiting out her nomination there to the highest court in the land. This has been organized by the conservative Independent Women's warm and some of the folks that are going to be along. You may notice. No, they are Fox News contributors. Sarah Carter. Teaparty Patriots cofounded Jenny Beth Martin and Jessica Anderson, She's executive director ofthe Heritage Action. That's the activists arm of the Heritage Foundation. Also, Heather Higgins, she's the CEO of the independent woman's voice. And also Tammy Blue. She may know her. She's a columnist. Actually, her work appears in The Washington Times. She's also talk radio host, she says. We should be able to all stand up and say that this accomplished Impressive woman at his Amy Cockney. Barrett deserves to be treated with respect that's coming from Tammy Bruce, she said. Yet the so called women's movement is standing by, while the mainstream media Questions. If Miss Barrett can be a Supreme Court justice and a good mother, in addition to vilifying her for her background and her faith, and that's Tammy Bruce talking, but At the opposite end of the mall. At the exact same time, there's going to be a another women's march. You recall the women's march of years ago where they do a million progressive ladies. Down on the mall that was in 2018. They're also planning an afternoon rally and march down the hall in that area. It's called the count on US events, and they're going to start at Freedom Plaza, not far from the White House and force trumps hotel down there, and after they get down down to the mall, they're going to have a mask. Texting effort about their cause. They expect to send out five million checks, and they also have 400 other marchers that are taking place in 50 other states. That's what they have to say. We need a huge and powerful mobilization to help energize the nation inspire millions to turn out to vote and to cap off Trump's presidency just the way it started with massive women led resistance. You got it. Two marches down there. One conservative one. Definitely progressive feminist. If you're curious about the conservative 1 march for all women simply go to march for all women dot com. If you're curious about the other is women's march dot com So That's what's going on downtown today.
Bengals rookie, Tee Higgins, getting more comfortable in offense
"Lance McAllister. He is Dave Lapham. It's welcome in a special guest. He's the Bengals rookie wide receiver for catches on Sunday. 16 catches on the season. We welcome in tea, Higgins t. How are you? I'm good. You're doing good. He had a 26 yard or yesterday. That was the longest play from scrimmage for the Bengals against that Baltimore Ravens defense If you played against a defense on any level that was more aggressive than what the Ravens took us a posturing yesterday in that football game. Um, I mean, I've been in the league knows. You know me plan against other sue in the national championship there, David, Mrs. Really aggressive. So that's the first time I've seen that since that game. See, I mentioned 16 catches. Now It's 16 times you've hooked up with Joe talk to us about the the comfort level in the chemistry you feel it's developing between you and Joe, Ah, utility and better and better each week. No, you listen to me more and more now, so just go out there and practice catching those, You know balls that he's given me, you know. With this behind me, or in front of me. He knows over the shoulder, so they're out there making those plays. Giving him confidence in me is, you know good so It seems like on a week by week basis you're learning and the one thing you talked about early, and teammates had mentioned it to you don't flash. Don't show your hands earlier. These defensive backs the guys at this level, You know, just kind of feed off of that. That type of thing. What other things have you learned little nuances that you've already applied in the early stages of your NFL career? Yeah. I can't do too much dancing at the London coach when you were going to get Stevie, you know, you gotta get point from point A to point B. And you know a lot of guys. Honestly, they're they're really good for defeat, and they're going to read you. So you just You can't can't do too much Daphne Blonde scrimmage. 85 games into your NFL career, Is it what? You thought it was the game? What you thought it be from a speed and everything you have heard? How was it played out for you? Yeah, that will be a new is gonna be a lot faster, if not more physical, You know that. It has been exactly that. Nah, just really well, and you know, really Now so plated Ellis you like you said, Death Valley. I've been to Death Valley Broadcasting games for that environment. There's nothing like in a night game of Death Valley. You haven't lived until you've experienced something like that. And then in the SEC, all the visiting stadiums that you go to, of all the crowd noise mirroring what's it been like? Plant in the National Football League with covert, You know 19 in the year 2020. That's been so different for everybody. What's that been like a Zen experience. Yeah. You know, having a no fan and stuff like that been really, You know really strange And we're you know, you know, I've been playing football on my whole life. Always have fans, and so is it really just feels like a scream? It's you got. Ah, Brain Accutane. Gotta bring no energy, So I mean, that's what we try to do. You make a play to bring all energy I'm getting so tight, you know, came allowing the crowd when there's no fans in the stadium, so That's really how we go about it. T fans get to see you play on the field, but I don't think they have an appreciation for everything that goes with it in terms of following the protocols in the testing, and that's got away. I would think that's gonna be on your mind. And yet you have toe push it aside to play football. What's it like dealing with everything else beyond just playing the game right now? Yeah. You know, you got to get tested everything the day at a certain time. And, you know, get our math everywhere. So I mean, It's been really, you know, really weird, But everyone's going to just too and you know, just following protocol just so we could go out there and play the game that we both. Yeah, it's an interesting year instead of going on the road and facing these hostile crowds. Your face in a hostile enemy and covert 19, you know, and it's like you never know when it's going to crop up like it did in Tennessee, in Miami and other places, And I guess this This is the year where you have to go from a mental standpoint, be mentally strong and be ready to pivot on a just, I mean the team that pivots and adjust the best, you know, be at the Patriots with what they're going through the Titans and other teams. And teams that really don't get affected by covert. But after almost, you know, work to make sure you don't every single day of the season, the team that handles that type of business best this year. The teams are going to be okay. Right. Just like you know, you just gotta be careful with the alpha people, not people, not always. In the building every single day, you know, just really quarantine yourself for what? You know a few more weeks. The season go through and you know everybody be alright, so To your body's taken hits now for five weeks. How Just how In general, do you feel physically at this stage of the season? I feel really good, You know, just getting treatment. And, you know, getting massages every week, you know, just got to take care of your body. You know, you don't take care of your body. You won't be able to play under sentence on Sunday. So You were exposed to. Ah, tremendous leaders, coaches players at Clemson. I think you thought that Joe borrow fit that category. A za an outstanding leader as he lived up to everything that you thought. My understanding is after the game, he instead to the to the defense. You continue to play like that. We won't lose another game this year. I mean, that's that's what you're looking for. From your guy at quarterback in it. Oh, yeah. 100% You know you want to go out like that is going to take Take ownership of you know how we play it off. As you know, we gotta compliment our defense when they go out there and get stuff. You know, we gotta go out There is four points where they'd be a field, road or touch now. And him. Coming up in, you know, speaking on it in a zoo, the game is really big, and that's what you're going to. God has run the offense see one. Ah, when all hick has been breaking, lose either good or bad. What has he been? What's job in like in the huddle? What kind of influence in leader has he been? From that standpoint? Got encouraging. You know he's gonna pick it up for my job. Go get a false start. You know he's going to talk to you encouraging you have that play behind, you know, And you know, we have a good place He's gonna you know. Giggle and laugh about it. Sometimes in the dependable know what the situation is. You know the guy that is the guy that you really want, you know, in the huddle. See how much carry over from Clemson in in your routes. The actual routes themselves are there to the to this offense here with the Bangles and National Football League? I know them different terminology, all those kind of things, but there are only certain number routes in a row tree, right? I mean, is it just me or is it just applying? You know things that you already know that you've done a million times? Make sure mentally you know, with the with the language and everything involved. You're on the same page as the quarterback. Yeah. Yeah, it comes and he basically ran everything. So I mean, you know you just from Beit was just you know, the different, you know, Route names and what? What The plate concept is So that was the biggest thing for me. But other than that, you know all the routes of the same You have two NFL touchdown catches. Do you have either football? Go out first. I have to keep down.
Chad Ochocinco, Carson Palmer meet in Idaho
"What's the story of chaired junk Ken Johnson and, of course in Palma, reuniting What a great sight to see. With Chad heading up the Idaho visit with Carson for awhile, just Oh, my goodness. The amount of content that they were putting out was just so entertaining, but I mean, obviously, we got to start with the fact that they had a video chatted with Joe Burrow and tea. Higgins congratulating them. I'm getting their first win in the N F l. I just thought that was absolutely phenomenal on their part. You want to go to those lengths to show to give them their congratulations and kind of like welcoming them into the league and and really highlighting their first W together, right? That's

"t higgins" Discussed on Newsradio 700 WLW
"To be with you yeah I I you know it's always good to be with you I don't you know burl was every everybody knew borough was going to be the number one overall everybody do the Bengals were not going to trade that pick how surprised were you with some some tackles and some tackles of note still available at the start of round two how surprised were you that the Bengals went with T. Higgins I would mildly surprised because I thought the Bengals are going to be a position where the the the run on off the capital's gonna happen around one and they'd be with us about options but there are some good ones there as our Cleveland from Boise state and John both of dive I had heard had a chance to go there early the top twenty overall ed Jones maybe there are some medical concerns if you continue to slide but yeah I mean not that that would be my lan criticism of the Bengals draft to that maybe they could tell a little more to address the office wide but hard to argue with what they did I think they did a good job and you know it's always hard to judge draft right after little sleep for weeks or years whatever but the way I judge dresses to correct your your basically one is getting fired next to the take the players around where they were supposed to come off the board and secondly to the address he and I think the Bengals did pretty well on both accounts yeah my workers would be the office line although they did draft Joakim identity cancel so they got the six round which is a really good value I thought he had a chance to go maybe even in the third round but worst case I thought he was going for a fifth round and he's athletic kid really versatile I can play inside or outside worst case you know you're going to swing back up with them so that was a good picture but the Bengals it's all but yeah I agree with you that would be about one third of the baby off line and is there a better value overall and you know value is an off thrown around word and and for a second round draft pick it it probably makes no sense so let me let me extract that but it was Higgins a better choice just on talent then Josh Jones for example yeah I think of course I had them really close to my rankings also I think that the coin flip in terms of of the talent in the value which can depend on what you're looking for an I don't think the AJ green isn't getting any younger so I think they want to think long term there as well and and he was actually compared to AJ green at one point no I think that's overzealous that you've got nearly as fast or athletic it is AJ green but similar type of thing where he can really stretch the field that's where he excelled going up in within those fifty fifty jump balls on the outside so it makes sense that a lot of levels in anything we do to support your world from here on out I'm not going to argue with the weather Walker I always say the there's three ways to really young quarterback one don't protect them don't give a weapon to throw two and three I have a lot of turbulence with the coaching staff in the system so anything I can do to avoid going to trial for that's when we've talked a lot about Logan Wilson from Wyoming on the show I want to touch on the other line backer that they took in in round four Akeem Davis Gaither now before they took him to outside linebackers went off the board in the compensatory picks Alex Highsmith from Charlotte went to the Steelers and right before him or right after mom sorry David Taylor from Colorado went to the eagles how does Akeem Davis Gaither stack up against both of those guys and do you think you either Smith or Taylor were available to the Bengals would that would either one of those to have been a better choice than Davis Gaither no I don't necessarily think so and outside with a very different type of player he's more of a defense and edge pass rusher but I can't believe they're engaging tale Colorado are very similar type players the underside really staff athletic but but didn't the biggest star of another thing looking Joe Berlet how they remade their linebacking corps five you know I think back to you even when things were going well into that yet they had declined backers they work fast they weren't athletic I mean you think back to Vontaze Burfict in in re malu you guys were more shoppers in the box thank you so it is so it could be quite a change to see them have guys like Akeem Davis Gaither who I think you've got a poor man's version of like their students what the top ten year me chapter seven of the one point five the second round and he's got even more because it gives other guys that love that one but he played similar type role where you can wind up in a secondary problem playing linebacker I remembered all the snorkel washing him run stride for stride with some really good wide receivers downfield vertically so you exactly the type of player you need in this day and age it will not pass happy NFL guy to be a force of coverage for Logan Wilson right but you guys were playmakers in coverage yeah that Wilson is a playmaker for I I said this yesterday for some reason I I saw a lot of Wyoming games this year it probably for lack of sleep I can't remember why but I was watching a lot of the Wyoming game software about four five of them and he's a playmaker he's a difference maker in the problem with the linebackers they've had here is and all extract Berkeley from the conversation because she was never healthy and that he was suspended all that time they really haven't had linebackers that make plays they have linebackers that could tackle but they couldn't take the ball away or they couldn't enter Seattle intercept forced fumble fumble recovery big plays the change the the length of the field for the offense I think Wilson can do that from what I've seen even though Wyoming was not a power five conference school I think this guy can come in here and immediately have an impact what about you yeah I think so I a I think it's a really good point I'm say what is your talking outside of restless brain drain go back well the last time the Bengals had a play maker at the linebacker position and nothing's coming to mind so you know question not only did they remake their linebacker corps stylistically but but they're bringing a new dimension and I think we'd be remiss not to mention to Marcus Bailey for produce well you would have got a day to head even healthy you've got the major durability concerns are coming off another issue injury shortened human but with healthy that skill so yeah I mean the bangles Michael got a brand new privilege seven seven linebackers Mostra US ski here right I mean it's a it's the the whole team is just looks different than last year except for some and we've talked about him some spots and I'll tell you on that offense if you've got four guys that can burn and they do right now and can contest for catches like green and what Higgins can do it you mix in Jonesborough if they can just keep burl upright and not have an inordinate mata sacks not going into the ridiculous numbers they had a few years ago or I think it was in excess of forty sacks if they can keep the dude up right this team is going to score a lot of points I mean not eighteen twenty I mean this team is capable with the talent they have at the skill positions Scott this team could score twenty eight thirty points consistently I really think the Bengals fans should have more optimism now than at any time since when maybe they expect when they took Carson Palmer first overall and since then concerning the anti don't narrow it was adequate but yeah I mean you were never going to win a Super Bowl Dante don't worry it's not gonna happen this year but there's reason to be optimistic that things are on the right track it I think at the very least the Bengals have much higher ceilings and outside they haven't brought you Becky yeah no I I agree Scott right draft countdown dot com all of the other AFC north teams which team had the best draft was it Cleveland was a Baltimore or even Pittsburgh which you know if they didn't have a first round pick but they got their first round pick last year and make of fits Patrick I'm I'm just wondering of those three teams which of those three upgraded themselves the most I will like with the Baltimore Ravens dead hand and traditionally I've been doing this for over twenty years and and I think the store clean the ravens have consistently done the best year to year evil god with all his retiring Eric because he's just picked up right where he left off drafting extremely well and that the team that always gets good value for their picks and also I really like with the Baltimore Ravens did a couple picks it can stand out certainly there for Celtic Patrick queen compels you you can be that replacement for for CJ Moseley that they've been looking for JK Dobbins running back from Ohio state I think you can be the answer to mark Ingram but I think I would probably because I'd really like a wide receivers they brought in seventy remain protected I think you can be a great fit that passing a tax for March accident it really complement the guys they have now marquise brown in then in the seventh round they stole James poche accents from Jasper shape from I thank you I'm a big fan of the cell because of medical concerns but I thank you with a middle round picks up I really like with the read instead but but I I thought possible every draft I think Cleveland did a really good job well it's a good first another team that that year in and year out they do a really good job and it's not a coincidence that I talk while the ravens Steelers do a good job you're in you're out then and there to organizations that consistently perform well on the field as well they don't really have balance even close because you so while replenishing of the draft Scott I got about thirty seconds when opening day comes in twenty twenty and we hope on time where is Andy Dalton is he on this roster is he on another team's roster and if he is on another team's roster where is the most likely place yeah I have a hard time seeing that the Bengals when the season starts well I think everybody's ready for lunch from noon correct musical chairs a lot of the chairs were filled out the team that would seemingly on the surface make the most sense patriots but I mean I've heard that he he's not quite tall enough for for double check so we'll see I guess if I'm going to put money into that let's say the patriots but I don't have any degree topics that you know I don't think you're the starting job out there for him I think you have to settle for a backup gig in any place where maybe he's got

"Higgins. Thank you, sir. Mr. Cohen, you quoting you close. I can't early said I spent last week looking through boxes to find documents. Our support your accusations where those boxes good, sir. Where are the boxers are in your garage or storage, and these boxes that should have been turned over to investigative authorities during the mainly criminal investigations even subject to serve. These are the boxes that were returned to me. Include data pertinent to crimes that you've committed. Should they not have been turned over to Amanda to investigative authority did Mr. Lanny Davis? No of these boxes. Don, gentlemen. You may answer the question. I don't understand his questions. Very well. Morning. Thank you, chairman Cummings for convening this hearing and thank you MS Cohen for voluntarily testifying this morning. Mr. Cohen, you were the executive vice president and special counsel for the Trump organization. Correct. I was the executive vice president special counsel to Donald J Trump. And special counsel means you're the attorney for him. Is that right? Just means. I was there in order to handle matters that he felt were significant and important to him individually, and those included legal matters, your, sir, sir. As a former attorney, you're familiar with legal documents known as nondisclosure agreements or NDA's is that right? Yes. Sir. I'm sure you know, that NDA's properly written in scope can be reasonable in certain business context, but they can also be abused to create a chilling effect to silence people as we've seen in the metoo movement, and and other places isn't that? Right. Mr cohen. Yes. Mr. Cohen, the Trump organization used NDA's extensively isn't that? Right. That's correct. Mitch cohen. I'm reading from a recent Washington Post article regarding the language one of these types of NDA's, where the terms were described as very broad, for instance. The terms confidential information was defined to be anything that quote. Mr. Trump insists remain private or confidential including but not limited to any information with respect to the personal life, political affairs, and or business affairs of Mr. Trump or any family member close quote to those terms sound familiar to you I've seen that document. In fact, there's a class action lawsuit filed this month by former Trump campaign worker, Jessica Denson that this NDA language is illegal because it is too broad too vague and would be used to retaliate against employees who complain of illegality or wrongdoing. Would you agree? Agree that in the use of the end of these types of NDA's with this type of language and later when Donald Trump sought to enforce them that he intended to prevent people from coming forward with claims of wrongdoing. Yes. Would you agree that the effect of the use of these NDA's and their enforcement was to have a chilling effect on people or silence them from coming forward? I apologize. I wanted to find chilling. I'm not sure that he would and using these NDA's or trying to enforce them would basically try to keep people silent that was the goal and nothing at the Trump organization was ever done unless it was run through President Donald Trump. Correct. That's one hundred percent certain okay. Mr cohen. Do you believe that there are people out there today? Either from the president's business or personal life who are not coming forward to tell their stories of wrongdoing because of the president's use of NDA's against them. I'm sorry, sir. I don't know the answer to that question. Okay. Cert? I have a couple of other questions for you. When was the last communication with President Trump or someone acting on his behalf? I don't have the specific date, but it was a while ago. Okay. Do you do you have a general timeframe?.
