Fresh update on "tsa" discussed on The Lead with Jake Tapper
"But also, in new, Orleans in Denver in San Francisco, the help cannot come soon enough for these employees, the order just place, but the screens will not be installed until the fall. and. What are airlines warning in terms of how long it could take before, air travel fully recovers. Well. Maybe the most dire warning coming out. Of Germany airline Lufthansa says, it will not see a full recovery until twenty, twenty four here. Domestically, the head of Delta. CEO At bastion says it will take two years of choppy recovery in a new memo to employees. He says, the airline will. Start to see its full recovery until there's a widely available vaccine. Interesting here is the band is simply not there for airlines as coronavirus cases started this surge across the country demand for travel, they say started to level off. There is a bit of a glimmer of hope, the number of passengers who pass through TSA security checkpoints across the country reached a new pandemic high on Sunday, nearly eight, hundred thousand. But to put that in perspective, it's only about thirty percent of a year ago Pamela. His quite the perspective. Thanks so much. We'll historic moment expected any day now is Joe Biden as a diverse field. BP contenders with sources are now telling us about Biden's thinking up next. And we're back with twenty twenty, lead any day. Now, Joe Biden will name his running mate. A critical choice that's likely to make history with Senator Harris former national security adviser Susan Rice and congresswoman. Karen Bass believed to be among the more serious contenders out of the eleven women who have been vetted C. N.. N.'s Jeff Zeleny digs into what's driving Biden's decision. Best, BUYS PRESIDENT AMERICA'S EVER HAD MR JOE by. who was a role Joe Biden loved playing is being unafraid to give it to me straight. Even if we disagree. In fact, especially, when we disagree as the former vice president enters the final stages of finding a running mate of his own, it's the relationship with Barack. Obama that's enlightening and complicating his search when they left the White House Obama and Biden were friends entrusted allies, but it didn't start out that way. It was surprisingly easy bond even to them six months in. Prison looked, should you know Joe, no, surprise me. We've come such good friends. I surprised you. Friends Biden. Kelsey en his partnership with Obama offers one of the most instructive guides for how he's making his decisions. It's been very orderly. There's every one of the women I've we've interviewed is qualified and I've narrowed it down. You'll find out shortly five months ago. Biden set the parameters of research during the final primary debate with Bernie, Sanders, I would pick a woman to be my vice. Vice President since then AIDS tells CNN. Eleven women have undergone vetting a financial records. Personal backgrounds, end medical histories, people close to the search believe California Senator Kamala, Harris, and former. Obama. National Security Adviser Susan, Rice are among those. He's most seriously considering with steep challenges from Corona, virus to the economy awaiting the next president friends. Of Biden, tell CNN, he's intent on finding a governing partner. Not simply a campaign one, yet, one moment from the campaign trail still reverberates loudly when Harris questioned his Senate record and fight against federally mandated busing to desegregate schools..
Feds clash with Portland protesters again
"Now we all know that Donald trump has a thing for dictators and each time he praises leaders men who he has called. Good friends trump exposed and apparent autocratic envied that foreshadowed what we are seeing happening right now in Portland, Oregon we're on Friday thousands of protesters, including the wall of MOMS and a wall of. Of veterans standing in solidarity with black lives matter we're met by federal agents who fired pepper balls and deployed tear gas to disperse the crowds for two weeks now federal officers wearing military style, camouflage and helmets have been patrolling Portland with batons and tear-gas, driving around in unmarked vehicles, sweeping up and detaining protesters in a way that Oregon's own attorney general says resembles abductions. This ladies and gentlemen is trump's secret police. Federal agents igniting chaos in the city led by a democratic mayor who was also tear-gas by US agents this week. According to trump, he's simply trying to quell unrest. In other words, he is clinging to the image of the law and order president as his approval ratings continued tank borrowing from the playbook of the dictators. He's so admires. will go into all of the city's Eddie of the cities we're ready will put in fifty thousand and sixty thousand people that really know what they're doing. Then they're strong tough, and we could solve these problems so fast. Joining me now is in Applebaum staff writer at the Atlantic and author of twilight of Democracy Renee, Graham columnist and associate editor at the Boston Globe. Sarah Kinzir scholar, authoritarian states, and all of hiding in plain sites and Philip he goes of the center for Policing Equity Thank you guys for joining me and I'm going to start with you. We are living in a world where secret police are detaining protesters without probable. So. If you look out on the nation, you will note across the chasm a lot of steering thing we try to tell you and you really touch on some interesting things in your piece in the Atlantic I loved it and you say that Donald Trump's authoritarianism is a form of politics that reached new heights. And you compare this what we're seeing in the landscape to Russia explain that to me. So. Thanks I think the important thing to understand about what trump is doing is that these are not tactics designed to solve the problem? Why is he sending customs and Border Patrol Coastguard Tsa. Officers into American cities these are people who don't have training and riot control who aren't used to dealing with political protests, and whose main goal seems to be to create more chaos. Of course, this isn't full on dictatorship. Resting the mayor or conducting mass arrests are putting thousands of people in jail for what he is doing is creating pictures. That are designed to show other Americans. How tough he is! So the fact that these men are wearing men and women maybe are wearing camouflage. They look heavily armed. They're wearing. Face Masks this is designed to show and kind of act out dominance. Look were pushing back against the liberal America the. Urban America the chaotic in America that. You're all afraid of and this is how we're going to win the argument. This way of using troops and using photographs of violence is something that we have seen in other authoritarian states. particularly in Russia where. Putin in twenty, thousand fourteen. Used pictures of violence to imply that the democracy movement in Ukraine was really some kind of Nazi fascist uprising, and that he was then putting it. Is, this is a tactic. We've seen US in other parts of the world, and we've already seen the photographs and footage of this be used in campaign. So that really punctuates your Article Philip. I want to turn to you because one thing that concerns me about. This is the experience that black and Brown people have when we encounter police so attorney general bill bar has said that in these new cities that the police officers are going to be clearly identifiable. I don't know that that makes it better. Considering that when black people encounter police there three times more likely to be killed in Chicago there six times more likely to be killed whether you make this. Yeah amp put it exactly right. These are not here. These troops are not here to make anything better. They're set up. In camouflage, which by the way they're not blending into any urban environment with those uniforms. To make the folks who are protesting who had been almost entirely peaceful important up until this point. Make them fear that there's going to be some kind of forceful, physical violent, a reaction to their peaceful expression of their rights and the thing I want to understand is this is over the objection, not only of the mayor of the US Attorney Attorney General the governor of local law enforcement as local law enforcement has been trying for the last seven eight to figure out how dare legitimacy at trust of New York, and this is explicitly not helping
Bipartisan bill introduced to require TSA to take temperature checks
"A congressional bill would require the state to take the temperatures of all passengers during security checks. That bipartisan Healthy Skies Act was introduced by Republicans Ted but of North Carolina and Ralph Normal of South Carolina. And Democrat John Larsen of Connecticut, but said the statement that doing the Czechs will help Americans feel safe when they traveled
Atlanta airport closes main security checkpoint after TSA worker tests positive for coronavirus
"Security checkpoint at Atlanta's Hartsfield Jackson International Airport has been reopened as W A. B E's Jim Burrows reports. It was closed for much of Wednesday after a screener tested positive for covert 19. Relatively light passenger volumes weren't enough to prevent long delays up to an hour at its height. This is Cruz did a deep scrub of the main security area. A spokesman says the screener who tested positive for covert 19 most recently worked the 3 a.m. to noon shift on Tuesday. Any screener who also worked that shift must now quarantined for 14 days. Say employees have criticized the agency throughout the pandemic, saying hires up aren't doing enough to protect them. In April screener at Atlanta's airport died after coming down with the Corona virus. Officials say they're trying to limit pat downs and bag searches to minimize contact with passengers.

Big tech companies back away from selling facial recognition to police
"Big companies are saying they're not gonNA make facial recognition technology so just the quick rundown IBM announced it's no longer offer, develop or research facial recognition technology. There's some important caveats that Amazon has banned the police from using its. Facial recognition system called recognition for the next year. Which is the other caveat? Internally. Microsoft, which is sort of talked about this? A lot has said we will not sell facial recognition to the police. Insult Congress Passes Privacy Law. Another caveat they're all caveated announcements, but. Just before we started recording, I was saying you do not see a technology at this stage of development. Halted in any way because of social concerns, so walk us through what's happening? Obviously in the context of black lives matter the protests, but walk us through what is going on anouncements and how they work? Yeah, I mean so I. Think something that I definitely want to highlight up. Top is the history of criticism of these systems which goes back years, and there's a few researchers particularly enjoyable Weenie Timmy Gebru who, in two thousand, eighteen published a paper called gender shades. which they really sort of provided the first comprehensive empirical evidence that there are racial and gender bias with these systems, so that's been alone of criticism that's been picked up. Push forward by people like the ACLU. Now obviously with protests across America and greater scrutiny on. Police and law enforcement in January that's now pushed out to the four, but these criticisms go back years, so it's really important that they're now. Being taught about an action is happening as you said, there's been three announcements IBM on Monday Amazon Wednesday, Marcus often Thursday, but each of them deserves different caveats. Amazon Microsoft announcements obviously goes together because they're going for a twelve month. Ban and IBM's goes in a different slot. Because they're saying we're going to stop doing this. Totally however I would say. I've been desperately trying to get IBM to answer some specific questions. About the scope of this band and they have been very unhelpful. You both will have experienced this before when you go. Okay, so I have a little question here, and just like a yes, or no answer. And how do you feel about giving that? Go? James We've written a blog post. Just like to read the blog posts. Donald explain everything and. Post but I had some questions about the blog post and they will not. Have you really read the? Anyway. For a company who who make software that claims to like understand the of human knowledge, and is able to like actually literally debate you. The inability to engage in a discussion about its products is fascinating. Maybe you're actually talking to their debate. Ai and not to real human. Oh, my God yeah, it turns out. Watson sucks. It only generates blog posts with ambiguous claims. And cannot answer a follow up so James Real quick just give us a brief intro. How does facial recognition work so facial recognition is based on machine learning. which is sort of technology that looks for patterns in large data sets, and then tries to predict or find those patterns elsewhere. In this case, the patterns it's looking for our measurements based on your face now there's lots of different ways that these algorithms work, but basically they're looking for say the distances between certain landmark features on your face that could be the distance between your eyes from your nostrils to the tip of your mouth between your eyebrows all. All those sorts of things so they will be scanning faces. They will be measuring those little points, and then they will be comparing them to a database. There's different ways that could happen. You might be doing a one, too many find where you have a face that you've say record on TV and you're looking for it in a big watch list of people, or it might be a one to one thing which is what happens at a passport. Border check where you have one picture one face, and you're just looking to see if there are match or not, those technologies are implemented in very various ways. You know some people use them to pull footage from TV that they analyze later. Some do live TV stuff that's happened in London for example and somewhat to integrate them onto body cameras as well so there's a lot of different ways is coming up, but you're basically getting an algorithm that looks at your face and looks to see if it matches another. Let's start at the top right. There is the gender shades paper. There is this just enormous body of evidence that. Facial recognition systems are biased against gender and race. Just unpack that a little bit, and what does that actually mean in practice for people? What should people understand about that? So that means that the same? System when it's looking at a white face when it's looking in the face of a person of color. It is going to be just less accurate when it comes to matching identities when it comes to just simply saying say what gender, it thinks that person is these algorithms consistently get lowest scores for non white faces. It's really as simple as that. The huge terrifying scary things is when you think about how those judgments then going to be used by people with power over your life, whether that's the law enforcement, or whether that's a private company. Many of whom are buying these systems and integrating them say into a watch list for the shop, and they are going to start going well system says your on our. Nautilus, and you can't come into the shop and you know what recourse you have in a scenario right, so I always think of this in terms of the TSA. A Brown man who regularly travels the bag, full batteries and wires I have many interactions with the TSA, but I'm in the airport.
Are airlines clear for takeoff?
"Also got some encouraging new numbers from the TSA the agency, screening more than half a million passengers for the first since the coronavirus pandemic hits and Credit Suisse issuing some calls on the space southwest, the big winner getting upgrade as analysts believe the airline is well positioned for a comeback, but the firm downgrading united and spirit so are the airlines clear for takeoff Jeff Mills Holy. Cow United Airlines up twenty percent today. It's interesting, and I just WanNa make the first point which I think is critical at these levels and in this market when you're buying into the airlines, you have to understand what you're doing. What you're doing is buying into a Beta trade, which is completely linked to the reopening so this afternoon. Just for fun. I looked at American Airlines Delta MGM. Casinos, a couple of the cruise lines, and I looked at the correlations. If you go back to twenty, nine thousand nine as an example, then you average. Average out the correlations. If you just do a little matrix, it was point four three, so not that high from the bottom. Those stocks have been correlated an average of point nine six. You're basically looking at the same chart so when you're buying into an airline I don't know that it's anything idiosyncratic relative to the fundamental, so I want to make that point very clear upfront I've been cautious as it relates to the airlines. I think there are some risks as we move into the fourth quarter. Is Business travel going to come back. Are we going to get a second wave of the virus? I think there's this pent up demand right now, so you're seeing traveler throughput increase, but those TSA numbers we above five hundred thousand for the first time we were at about one hundred thousand per day at the depths of the the economic shutdown. Let's not. Not Forget I mean that's good, but this same day in two thousand, nine, thousand nine. That number was two point six million. We have a lot of ground to cover in terms of getting to where we need to be from demand standpoint. Last thing I will say just in terms of picking names within the space I. Think you WanNa. Look at A. A few things you WANNA look at exposure to business travel you WANNA look evaluation. I, also think you WANNA look at exposure to international travel, because that demand hasn't clearly come back yet. The name I think that might be best positioned for all of that is actually south west in terms of their revenue mix exposure to international travel, and their evaluations actually look a lot better. Some of the names like American spirit jet blue. If you look at them from an IT perspective, even that these depressed price levels given the debt that they've added during the last couple of months, evaluations actually don't look that attractive so in a space I don't like much. I think South West might be the name. Michael What do you make that? Wyndham CEO was Unin closing bell, last. Hourani, said leisure travels picking up, and he seemed bookings increase for eight straight weeks, but jeff makes a good point about the business travel. What do you? What do you think that all adds up for for the airlines? Some opportunity here? Stay away no way yet. Well. I, think it certainly depends. Name by name is picking up off such a low level that you know. Those types of increases in percentage terms are going to see material, but that doesn't necessarily mean that certain players in the space are going to be in good shape, taking a look at American for example. You know this is a company where you're looking. Looking at relatively short data debt that's trading at just over fifty cents on the dollar. And what that tells you is that the bondholders still have significant concerns. The reason the equity does so well is because it is coming off such a low level. It's a speculative by as Jeff was just alluding to on a reopening, but that doesn't necessarily mean that in. In the long term, these companies are going to end up being successful. You know if you're looking at companies that have accumulated a massive amount of debt than the enterprise values was talking about might actually be very little change, you know. It was just over forty billion dollars at the end of twenty, nine, thousand nineteen for American. Airlines around thirty eight billion dollars. Dollars now it's just the equity component that's down, but debt has been added of those big carriers. Maybe Delta Airlines is probably the highest quality, but you're really playing with in a very dangerous space when you're dealing with levered businesses that are so closely tied to a recovery and needing that second wave is going to hit them very hard if it comes. So, what do you think PK? You WanNa play a dangerous game. WanNa wait into the airline's. Name more like Boeing you walking away. No, no I want you know it's going to be hands off for me I. Mean Really What you've got here. Yeah, was the retreat here certainly but any asset that's up twenty percent I don't care if it's an airline Boeing or bitcoin up. Twenty percent takes off the table. People I mean take a little bit of profit. Wait for another day in the long run. I, do think these are challenged. All right so you are sending those warning signs
How the jobs report managed to surprise almost everyone
"I will tell you what you can talk. Black swans until the cows come home. Those completely unexpected events often rationalized after the fact, there was not anybody who saw this morning's May unemployment report. Come and guess is worth for maybe ten million jobs having been disappeared last month. Instead we got two and a half million added back and the unemployment rate went down. Now everything is obviously not labour-market, sunshine and light, but today while surprising was progress. We marketplace's Mitchell Hartman to do some forensics for us. Let's start with this. Guy Adam Russillo. He's thirty four a dental office assistant in Austin, Texas the beginning of the third week of March and they let us know that just did a code. Nineteen would be closed in the office. Russillo got on on employment then in mid-may. When Texas started reopening, he was called back. It's great you know I. Much prefer the work, then you sitting around somewhere, not doing anything. Now multiply Adam ruffalo about two and a half million, and that's how you get a massive job increase in May with the pandemic still raging University of Michigan Economist. Betsey Stevenson says dentistry is actually a perfect microcosm of how service jobs are returning. It's business where people have to be face to face or mouth to sharp shiny dental instrument. The economy started open up. People went. Went Back to the dentist, so dense offices accounted for a full ten percent of the jobs gained last month, but still about thirty percent of people who worked at dentists offices before the pandemic so far haven't been called Back Stevenson says consumers are still afraid of getting sick and spending their money so dentists they are still not needing all their workers because fear and loss. Loss of income is holding back. Demand More than half the jobs that returned in May were at bars, restaurants casinos in the like jober swell us at our consulting saw the turnaround in real time, consumer activity stores opening TSA data and Road Congestion Control of which employs nearly implied the worst was behind us, and very modest recovery had started, but he says it could be. Be Years before people go back to eating out and traveling like they used to. And all those workers have jobs again. I'm Mitchell Hartman for marketplace one more thing coming out of Mitchell story for all the good there was in this report. It has to be pointed out that the black unemployment rate actually went up in May sixteen point seven percent to sixteen point eight. For a little context on why that is the reality in this economy, historically and present day I refer you once again. Mitchell Hartman, he has been burning the candle at both ends his
Big changes to airport security after coronavirus lockdowns lifted
"In the corona virus and when we really get back to normal as far as being able hop on an airplane and took off across the skies it's as part of the American DNA isn't as are what some of the changes that are made because of the pandemic with Lester sola is director of C. and the CEO of the Miami Dade aviation department which oversees a my you control the airport entre by the way at hi fly in my good fortune list thanks for joining us good morning Jamie thank you for having me yeah are what changes do we have because the pandemic I would imagine the traffic is going to pick up somewhat the airport well yes I do they will indulge traffic really really the one away I would hope that deck so as a result of that endemic were using the same approach that the everyone else is using to log not just the county but in the country you gotta maintain social distance you got to wear a mask when you're at the airport and you got to make sure that you're using the hand sanitizers and all the other supplies to be deployed throughout Europe would make sure that we keep people's hands clean and I think you've got social distance after going through the process of checking in and going to the security protocol how are they going to do the TSA checkpoint I mean is what's changed in that you know it's interesting you know that this industry teams are having to reinvent itself it happened once before September eleventh and it's gonna happen now with with the spend down so right now what's happening is is that what we're using the mask and the social distancing the FAA is the is the federal agency that will have to determine what kind of checks that pain will be instituted in the U. S. internationally when you're coming from abroad there are dark halls green that's being done to all the passengers depending on weather coming from but domestically it's it's a regulation that's going to be established by the FAA support now social distancing making sure that we provide sanitizes the Welsh you will notice throughout the airports that we laid out six foot markings every every time there's a queuing for passengers as well as the plexi glass screening that we've deployed not just through TSA checkpoints but also in the ticket counters as well right the airlines so what are your plans differently because of this I would imagine that go back to front and maybe just a wonderful time how they doing it is changing their entire operation in fact every airplane in a speaker with regards to American Airlines every airplane after it finishes its basically duties for the day either at night or in the morning they will sanitize the entire the entire airplane with a fog now the in addition to that we've we've been accustomed throughout the years when an airplane lands at a location that would be our line while cleaning crews that will go and pick up the garbage and do some cleaning nowadays there's significant sanitized that taking place between flights so that's why you're seeing a significant hold time for some of these for the airlines because the amount of cleaning and sanitizing all the touch points of the of the airplane before it loads up new passengers before they fly so it'll change the industry but it is something that the public is going to be comfortable with and they're going to demand that their their safety before they jump on a plane again right and we haven't seen any reports of outbreaks because their flight to it over the past month or so I mean that I don't know a lot of people are flying these days but but it seems like it's gone well thus far when you think what will really get back to fine you know it's it's interesting that you say that because of the one of the biggest fears are one of the biggest subject do you hear people talking about when they're flying airplanes at the year that the year is being recirculated being re used in airplane cabins those are the those were really the old fashioned airplanes nowadays at seventy to eighty percent of the error that you're reading as a passenger in an airplane is fresh air from the outside in the thirty to twenty percent this miracle is going to help us soldiers in fact it's not even happening in your home that are happening in your place of business right where else is the air being filtered or refresh the if you will as much as the odds on airplanes so I think the trouble in itself has has suffered a has gone down but I will tell you that it's increasing week over week so it it's going to be a slow start but we do see the upward curve are already take place

Wheres the stop button??
"I'm Steven Seagraves. Joined by Seth Miller and foss mood. Hey guys hey so. It's a lovely Tuesday afternoon. We're recording this earlier than normal. Actually know what day of the week it is. I keep track an end. You know we have to record the show earlier. Because Seth is turning into a GRANDPA and Sunday starting to starting to do woodworking and go to bed early trump would it becomes a teacher just random side story about shop teachers I actually didn't get take shop class in high school. We sort of had one. But I I did a drafting course. Instead which turned out to be very valuable and useful to me later in life and so I'm happy I did it We I was like the last year they did paper drafting with the square and know the arm moving around and doing all by answers really cool on and then learned cad later but separate from that My wife was telling a story last night as we were talking about some of these things and I bought more tools or power tools on having the crap turns out matters a lot but she's timing the story about how she did something in shop class when she was like in middle school and hers wasn't very good but her sister who's a year younger than her came back and it was really good in much straighter lines and this and that and I'm like oh she probably is that the right the right the fence and had it all working correctly. I don't think we had that was like how could you do that? You use a table. Solid data blade without a French. So now you just held it carefully. This that's Super Dangerous. Did have missing finger cystic wait. Why get another kids ever lost fingers in Class? And maybe maybe the shop teacher lost in a different way. I don't know but just from a visual perspective in the image. You're trying to project. I don't see how that's a good idea. Not One of my which teachers told us to tell us how he'd come in on weekends with dead dear to cut them up on the we're GonNa be completely topic here for the first couple of is a friend of mine who lives in the catskills apparently China some stories about their neighbor once the stupid APP Arnold next next next door next door chats or this or that in something. Apparently someone hit a deer inside. Hey you know. Put a message on the side of the road around here. Be careful driving over there and one of the responses was like you just left it there. You didn't do anything else. Which okay fine notified the authorities like you have to tell us family? Apparently like a serious response was like wait. What family someone has to go find the family of the dead deer and let it know that mom dad is dead. I thought I thought I thought you were going to say that. They had told him to go pick it up in. Us The media. It's actually. It's actually a thing you know. I was surprised that they didn't give in where they are and whatnot. But maybe it was. Hey here's where it is if anyone wants to go picking up and eat it. It's only been a couple of hours. Probably Maga's haven't gotten to it yet. I Dunno next door is an entertaining beast. I have not far in my life avoided getting into it and I'd like to keep about if you like to read just just completely nonsense cyncical stuff and crazy neighbors. It is definitely for you. I spent a decent amount of time in my life on twitter quotient. I need man all right. So let's dive into some stories here. the first one is a propublica a article about the. Tsa over a million in ninety five masks even the airports are basically emt and TSA staffing levels down And it really doesn't need one point. Three million in ninety five masks and so this was concerns were raised back in April and You know they were saying we should donate these and people said No. We're not GONNA donate them. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA keep them Very interesting are the. Tsa agents working at the customer facing roles wearing masks at all I think they are right at the PX. They are okay but like started masks. Not An five sir. I'm pretty sure they're surgical haven't seen in ninety five used as sort of a weird thing with just the whole and ninety five situation at those are the ones that are going to see. A product guarantee knows transmission By what you know when you ask the question like one is the goal of wearing the mask and how much of it are you trying to control? Obviously one hundred percent time for. Everyone doesn't work right because we don't have the supplies and so someone someone wanted. Today is gonNA open up a warehouse in fine wherever the government put like all the ones they hijacked from the states and from everybody else they're going to be stored somewhere but it is kind of weird and it's instead the says that CSS quietly stored many of them in a warehouse near DFW. We're paying for the warehouse space. Yeah so anyway. It's it's it was expected that this would this would last thirty days. That surplus would last thirty days for all of their security officers but did did not account for the decline in the number of officers needed lately so with air down like ninety five percent in the US. I would suspect it would last a lot longer. I would pose the question. They asked you change their staffing levels knowing them. Let's that's a good question I don't know here's the thing though forty days. That's only if you take. What are one point? Three million two hundred forty only thirty two thousand five hundred so that really don't have there's only thirty thousand thirty thousand. Tsa agents working working per day on for some number's higher. I don't know it seems low for sure and also only one master person per day. The lunch break. You gotta put it back on. The in theory is a really bad idea. Of course I've been wearing the same one for three months now so nothing. Maybe maybe some people out there who were flown have seen what the what the. Tsa agents are wearing. Just let us know. Because I mean I've only been once during all this and other than that have been getting updates on their twitter so next up so Cessna has a new plane.

Well sometimes a source of tension between father and son slash president and vice president of Malardier was generally a pretty sweet deal for Delon until any contracts were finalized. It was essentially a place for Dell in the store. His hot rods jeeps and jet skis. It also gave access to mechanics and engineers who would gladly tinker away at whatever projects Dylan through their way. All you had to do was keep the place clean and organized. But he couldn't care less about that. More toys were stored at the sprawling. Millar to state. Police I arrived the night of Wayne. Millar it's death.

Yet depression him. He carried some pretty sadness within throughout life. I never really never really wanted to share it with me. The death of Wayne Millar is eventually ruled a suicide albeit a strange one as the coroner suggests he's never seen someone kill themselves with a shot through the eye as the interview with Dell includes. It's clear they've taken. Everything is told them as absolute truth but for grieving son gives the impression of a tired traveller being mildly inconvenienced by the TSA. Of course looking back on it now knowing the full story at all makes sense because Dell and Millar is a master manipulator the new CEO of Millar who will quickly closed the book on his family's legacy and throw it into the fireplace one year later it's February twenty eleven and twenty six year.

He looked over at me and he said Daddy. Can we go home. I am bored. I go yes yes we can.

There is now becoming Johnny Depp. Where you get a taste of you do these gritty independence and people love it but nobody really really sees it right? Nobody's seen that movie. And I know this when you ever you tell somebody same with you. Tell somebody I am acted as much movies which ones and I haven't seen that one that one never heard of that. I've never seen that one.

The only thing that's GonNa get you off anymore is is being in these two hundred million dollar movies doc. Look like a fucking idiot. That is sad because he is in my opinion. One of the greatest actors of two girls and guys one time China's master class from from day. One Johnny be good. He was the best actor of all time and nothing could fuck and take that away from him. Even sleeping in a child's bed high on coke. I mean nothing except for a bunch of money over. Oh the only thing that can mess with him is a shit ton of money and a lot of fucking time man.

"Is causal. What that simply means is we tend to apply causation to whatever we can see. It's one of the most one of the reasons economics is so difficult to get across the people because oftentimes what is visual is not causal. So what we see as the problem isn't really the problem. The problem is something that you can't see or that isn't readily identifiable. And so when we look at these long lines and we look at all the screening and taking off your shoes and your belt and putting your stuff through the screening deal, we believe that is where the security comes from when in reality, there's almost no security taking place there at all. All it does is make you feel better. Doesn't actually increase your security one iota at least not markedly. So as evidenced by how much contraband you can actually get through TSA screening, what does create real security is exactly what the TSA is doing here, the profiling. Now the question becomes, are the are the air marshals qualified to be doing this type of work and that's a legitimate concern. So if you've got a guy who comes out of the academy and all he's learned how to do is protective an airplane and shoot bag is on plane. He is not qualified to be profiling people walking through an airport. He doesn't. He doesn't know what he's doing, which is probably why this guy, this whistle blower, they called him was complaining about it. He's probably like, this isn't our job. This isn't what we do. And if he doesn't believe it's his job, if he hasn't been properly trained to do it, if he hasn't been told, this is an expectation of you now, and we're gonna make sure you have the training and the expertise to do it. Well, then he probably is frustrated with and rightly so, but the actual profiling itself doesn't interfere with anybody's life. If you're if you are not in engaged in taking down a plane, then you likely will never see them, and it is what. Will add real security to airports across the country. It's like I said, it's what I've been calling for. You don't have a right to fly on a plane. You don't. And while I don't agree with the government being in charge of the security at airports, I don't think that's necessary. I think private companies can hire people to do that just as well or better than the government definitely better than the TSA does it. You don't have a right to get on a plane, which means whatever sort of profiling, whatever security screening that the airline wants you to go through before you get on their plane is something that you don't have a choice about you wanna get on their playing. This is what you gotta do, and if it requires that you go through some sort of like secret profiling. And before you get on the plane, you just accept it or you walk or you buy your own plane fly private. You should. I'm saying, this is the type of screening that will actually bring real security as long as the people doing it or well trained, and there's the rub because there's no, there's no telling whether or not they are my guess is probably not. This is probably some add on or like, what? Why are we? We really wanna start this profiling program, but this is going to require a massive amount of money to hire and train a bunch of people. What else could we do? Well, we've got a bunch of these. You know, these air marshals are sitting around and airports waiting to get on planes. Maybe we could just task them with it. Well, it sounds like a pretty good idea up. That's that's what we'll do. Save a bunch of money. Get these guys work during their time off..

"From coming in and blowing the you know what out of you i can tell you the tsa is an abject waste of space there's no if it wasn't necessary before it shouldn't be necessary now so why are you changing it up and do you ever notice that there's again i know i know i know i'm just ranting here but it's driving me crazy for those of you who travel a lot you ever notice that it's never the same from one airport to another like there is no standardized procedure on what needs to come out on what doesn't on who takes off their shoes on what you can keep there's none of that it's nothing standardized now some of that is lot it makes a little bit of sense in terms of a you don't want people knowing from airport to airport some things will be a little bit different but that's a super easy thing to overcome if i'm actually trying to get in i just know what airport allows what and it makes it easy it makes it complicated when you don't travel through that airport very often and now oh laptops come out and oh i pads come out this time and they don't come out next time i've had tsa officers yell at me for taking my ipad out right after i came from a from an airport where they made me take my ipad out it's it's utterly ridiculous this is this is what kills me this is what really got my irish up today johnson remember head of tsa security said travelers should consider the tsa checkpoints eight partnership between passengers and the tsa to ensure their flights are safe johnson said thanking and acknowledging the tough job the tsa officers have goes a long way to bring down the stress level so does getting to the airport early since travelers will be less stressed and more likely to listen to instructions and remember to take out documents if they are not worried about the time oh thanks johnson slow me get this straight you are eight up from the ground up your entire organization is an absolute abject abortion and what i ought to do when you come in screwing up my day and my entire life is thank you and the people who are screwing it up so that they're less stressed and if i just arrived now too or three hours early to burn standing in a line because you run the most efficient operation on earth inefficient operation on earth i oughta just be grateful for arriving early because i'll be less stressed how about screw you how about screw the entire tsa i realize now i'm yelling and wanna yell but he i'm saying i mean can you imagine can you patents just like when i go to the dmv everytime i drive by the dmv on the back and forth from the studio i see the dmv and all the poor schmucks standing in line for four hours trying to get in there to get their driver's license renewed and i'm just like did you lost a whole day bro you lost all hold beya work standing in a line because there's no other option other than the dmv i mean i mean can you imagine being in the grocery store because we've all been in the grocery store right and they got to check out lines open there's ten checkout lines but they got two of them open and there's just mass there's just they're just backed up lines are just backed up and you're like cats going gonna take me take me twenty minutes to get in this line what is what is the supermarket do if they're good if if the manager knows what he's doing he pulls somebody from stocking he pulls somebody from the back and he puts them on as a teller or he hops in their himself and he starts running people through as a last resort why because he knows he knows if he makes you stand in that line and that happens more than once or twice when you come to the supermarket you're going to somebody else's there other places that you can shop for groceries and if they're they're not going to respect your time you'll take your money somewhere else can you imagine the supermarket manager coming out to you after you've been standing in the line for twenty minutes pissed off because you got dinner you gotta get on the table and a family that's hungry coming out and saying to.

"To just the rigmarole s involved with just getting to an airplane we decided all that convenience that we we'd enjoyed prior to that not necessarily worth it in the face of of terrorist attacks like we saw on on september eleven so we would deal with extensive security procedures and over time as tsa's got more efficient is narrowed narrow narrow narrow down the time descend to which you have to take certain things off everything's gotten better than things got a little worse when you had to deal with trying to get liquids out of your your luggage so as terrorists change their game we keep changing hours to adapt to it to all those threats but now and there's there's inch the tsa is continuing to test new things end and one of them is facial scanning i remember a you know if you're if you're tsa preject you've already sort of gotten your your fingerprints scan you did then the tsa in the project application process so they've got your fingerprints on file the biometrics right as the beginning of that as the gateway drug of biometrics giving the fingerprints but now i'm reading an access report on the fact that they're they're tried tsa looking to make things more efficient again be able to use scanners or testing scanners um that are going to be able to keep your liquids in your bags potentially your laptops in your bags potentially and the machines will start using machine learning to identify things that are exceptions to the rule and verify things that have been good in the past but the very last line of this piece says the tsa is also experimenting with using facial recognition to get passengers boarded on their plans flick an asterisk at the end by the way by the way the tsa also using facial recognition to get passengers boarded on their points and that to me seems like maybe we should pause for a moment and have a conversation about whether or not that's a good idea before we just sort of leap into our brave new future where everyone's faces are scanned walking through tsa maybe we consider water the downstream ramifications of that we're getting the you know give the federal government a copy of your face and have them scana as.
