Chlo Valdary on Love & Race
"Today it's so great to have coli Valerie on the podcast after spending a year as a Bartley fellow. At The Wall Street Journal, Thou developed the theory of enchantment, an innovative framework for social emotional learning character development and interpersonal growth that uses pop culture as an educational tool in the classroom and beyond. Khloe trained around the world including in South Africa the Netherlands Germany and Israel her clients have included high school and college students, government agencies, business teams, and many more because also lectured in universities across America including Harvard Georgetown. Work has been covered in psychology today magazine and her writings have appeared in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal coli. So so glad to finally tell you. Likewise, well, where do we begin? There so many so many potential starting points. If it's cool with you, I'd love to start with your theory of enchantment I'm enchanted with it as A. I know. But. I am enchanted with it because I. You know I have a deep interest in education and making sure that no kids fall between the cracks and I just love to hear how your program addresses some of those issues and just. Inspires you most about that work that you do? Sure. So theory of enchantment is a social emotional learning program. I've designed about a year and a half ago. And it comes out of my my desire to construct a framework to teach people how to love using the things that we already love and that we already gravitate towards. So things like pop culture for example, because I believe that there are narrative within our pop culture that teach people how to believe in their own sense of south worthiness believe in their ability to overcome obstacles to endure hardship. Until by blending those elements of pop culture that teach these lessons with ancient wisdom my theory is that you can teach people how to love themselves, and then in long run be able to get along with and love others. I'm really inspired and motivated by especially getting it in as many schools as possible but really. Young people, teenagers, and adults I'm I'm I'm really excited for for the possibility of seeing how many people become. Enamored with this approach. So how many years have you been doing that? When did you create the program? So I created it formerly a year and a half ago. Right on. So, how old are you right now and twenty, six, th moment. Cool. Yeah. So let's back up a little bit about your history. So what was your major in College? My Major was international studies with a concentration in diplomacy. Oh Wow that's gonna come in Handy now. You're applying it well. Applying it on twitter you're applying those people's finale. Try My best. It's much much needed more more people like that on social media and in the world broader. So when did you get interested in education? So what was the point you before you create this program? You're like, wow, they're really this indeed. So, basically, after I graduated graduated in two, thousand fifteen and then I moved to New York in the summer of two thousand fifteen because I got a job at the Wall Street Journal. At The Wall Street Journal for Year working on the desk and Um for nine months while I. was there I worked on a thesis that ended up being the catalyst for theory of enchantment are trying to again figure out how to create a framework for teaching people how to love within the context of conflict in diplomacy because that was my background but there was no framework that specifically explicitly laid this out like how do we get people to learn how to love there were frameworks Potter we get people to stop fighting each other, but not necessarily, you know to start loving each other. So I created a thesis came up with a theory and then lectured on that thesis for two years. And then increasingly when I would lecture get the response from parents in from people from all walks of life. Saying, Hey, this isn't just applicable. Within the context of conflict resolution is also applicable within the context of social emotional learning in the classroom with when talking about high schools we're talking about interpersonal matters when you're talking about just trying to create a society with more human flourishing in general. So you might want to consider taking what you've done and expanding upon it and building upon it and developing it into a full course. So enough people told me that and I decided to run with it.
Assisted Suicide for the Healthy
"Physician assisted suicide is sold to the public as a compassionate measure necessary to spare those who have no reasonable chance of recovery from the unbearable pain and suffering of the last days of their life. But in every context in which it's been made legal, however, what may be called euthanasia by another name has never remained limited to those rare instances on which it was sold. There are reasons that this particular slope has proven. So slippery literally everywhere, it's ever been made legal once it's decided that certain lives are. Not. Worth. Living well the list of people eligible for physician assisted suicide inevitably grows and as a list of people without intrinsic value grows, it becomes impossible to reevaluate lives based on some other criteria perhaps convenience or financial cost. Then it's a small step indeed from eligible to die to expected to die and wherever doctor assisted suicide is legalized and another Bayton switch from what is sold to the public. The category of terminal illness is often expanded to include chronic illnesses and permanent disabilities even mental illness and depression is Now considered sufficient justification for suicide in places such as Belgium and the Netherlands given this trajectory. It's only a matter of time before we dispense altogether with any requirement of any illness and fact that seems to be what's happening in the Netherlands a recently introduced bill. There would allow healthy individuals over the age of seventy five to request assisted suicide. If they had quote a strong death, wish for at least two months, the bill which is expected to be up for votes time in two, thousand, twenty, one would according. To the bill's sponsor, give the elderly the choice at an advanced age if they consider their lives complete to die with dignity with careful health thankfully, the two Christian parties in the governing coalition strongly opposed this measure, but it's GonNa be tough to keep it from becoming law after all bills only the next logical step in the whole Dutch trajectory having a brace what novelist Walker Percy called Sanitize Syndrome. Every promise to limit euthanasia in any way has only been broken everywhere and any so-called safeguards have been swept aside. For example, the people were promised that only those certifiably in their right mind would be euthanized. That was a lie after all anyone who goes into an American emergency room and tells doctors they have a strong death wish are gun with live with they'd be diagnosed with suicidal ideation admitted to the psych ward to not do this would be medical malpractice. Suicidal ideation is rightly regarded as a symptom of an underlying mental disorder and people who have untreated mental illnesses are not allowed to make life and death decisions or. At least they weren't in Oregon's doctor assisted suicide was legalized there over ninety six percent of people given lethal drugs never underwent a psychiatric evaluation to not evaluate at all is neglect. But if this Dutch bill becomes law, any elderly person who admits suicidal wishes won't be helped they'll be referred to those who will help them turn their wishes into reality. All of this is why as our recent what would you say video says? So clearly, there is nothing compassionate about physician assisted suicide nothing in fact, it's the exact. Opposite of compassion it's the abdication of civilized peoples responsibility to offer compassion to those who need it most when they need it most in his book Fanta Syndrome Walker Percy described how a society evolves to the point of thinking that killing patients. Instead of healing them is compassionate a psychiatrist he wrote of well trained in exquisitely credential doctors who quote, turn their backs on the hippocratic oath and kill millions of useless people unborn children born malformed children all for the good of mankind with his literary prophecy that was written. In nineteen eighty seven is becoming reality today. Some form of assisted suicide is legal in nine states and the District of Columbia that number only GonNa grow unless we can somehow convince people what true compassion is and make the idea that assisted suicide is compassionate unthinkable. So come to what would you say dot org for this latest video on assisted suicide in EUBOEA equipped to make the case and also please share it with your pastor community leaders and legislators. It's literally life and death issue
Quantum Machine Learning: The Next Frontier with Iordanis Kerenidis
"All right everyone I am on the line with Max Welling Max is Vice President of technologies. At qualcomm, Technologies Netherlands and a full professor at the University of Amsterdam. Max was a guest of the podcasts just about a little over a year ago in May of last year where we talked about gauge Equa variant CNN's generative models and the future of ai and I am super excited to welcome you back to the show. To catch up on what you've been up to and dig into some really interesting topics. Hi, Sam. Thank you for having me again on the show absolutely I I'm really looking forward to our conversation You may know this, but last year's podcast that that we did was the second most popular show of the year. So does the the second most downloaded show for the the podcasts and I am sure this one will be just as hot So looking forward into it before we jump into our topics which include topics like neuro. Federated Learning graph they're all networks. Give us an update on what you've been up to at qualcomm and the you know the current focus of your research at the university. Yeah. So I think many of the topics that we talked about last year are still You know hotly pursued at the university and at Qualcomm So we're doing a lot of generative modelling. where we look at, you know, how can we build models that can generate high dimensional data like images and audio in a very realistic way trained completely unsupervised from from data we are also looking at still at in variances and said of symmetry in Dade, in how we can embed those into these models. and in particular, also looking at graph neural networks with applications now, also to dry molecules. So we've started the project where we try to predict the properties of molecules and can be very naturally model with graph neural net because you know molecule is a little bit like a graph and we've made these models also symmetric two rotations in in Three D. space if I take a molecule and I rotated around, then sit of the internal representations of that narrow network need to transform in a coherent way under these rotations and since it's the graph near on that, it's also it's also symmetric under permutations of the nose. and so all of these symmetry is are built into the neural network and being trying to predict properties for drugs, for instance, and in that in the context of you know if we can find something that is good against a go of it. but we've also looked at efficient learning Trent training networks. So very limited precision is mostly worked as being done at qualcomm because of crispy wanted to run our phones an innocent of lowest the lowest amount of energy and so to to have the highest accuracy but using the least amount of power possible. and so we've been a lot of research and trying to make these. sort of complex neural network computations, very low precision, and as an additional sit of new tracking their revolt have been looking at quantum computation now, and in multiple ways, the first of all quantum chips might be around a corner can we train get can be designed good neural networks that would. Run on quantum chips but also just look at the mathematics off these of of quantum mechanics and see if that quantum of the mathematics is is sort of a new language even for classical neural networks. So yeah, there's there's a lot of things happening and then and then there's of course it neural augmentation that we will be talking about We have been applying these ideas to different application areas in Martyrs Communication also at the university, but also on. Princeton's to to my Mo- detection and also to era correction decoding and also to to channel estimation. Awesome. Awesome. Interesting to hear you bring up quantum and quantum machine learning You know that's something. We can maybe spend a few minutes on a curious on your your overall take I've been trying to myself to get a sense for whether I. Think it's worthy of all the hype it's getting in how far away it is and how relevant it is machine learning and they I what what's your take on it? Yeah. They could easily spend an hour on this. I'm very, very excited about this stuff. So. So for me at this point it is mostly intellectually interesting and I have a physics background. So my my supervisor of US GARAGE TOFU IS A. Nobel, prize onset sort of standard model quantum, a standard model quantum mechanics, and he has a very particular and interesting view on quantum mechanics, which is very controversial. I would say but and and and if you is that, in fact there is A. World there, which is not logical where the world is just in classical state at the very, very small small was level. We don't know what that state is or what the e even how to describe it, and so the mathematics to describe that sort of. Classical Senator Automata is happens to be quantum mechanics. A quantum mechanics is a mathematical tool like complex analysis is a mathematical to to solve. Partial differential equations, ordinary different differential

"You know. What of all do you know anything about the war? Julia. I know that Britain was involved Yup. Ask you know what that would have been a good guess at the very least. South Africa is. Is Part of it. Yes, you are correct on both counts, so that is pretty. Well. You know what that was more than I knew when I started researching this topic so congratulations. I didn't know about Britain but I did not know about. South Africa and I will not be referred to it as that from for the rest of the I promise so to begin with the conflict is commonly referred to as the second bower war. Since the first war, which was December eight, hundred, eighty, two, Martini one only lasted. A couple of months was smaller. It was just it was really a war. It was kind of a battle. The Word Bower B. O. E. R. means farmer. And it's the common term for Afrikaans speaking white South Africans descended from Dutch east India Company's original settlers at the Cape of Good Hope, so these are white. South Africans who speak Afrikaans which is. Like a sort of a weird hybrid between like Dutch and then. African it's kind of a cool language. In South Africa it is officially called the South African War. And, they also sometimes called the second Anglo Bower War and in fact, according to two thousand eleven BBC report. Most scholars prefer to call the war of eighteen thousand nine tonight to the South African. War, thereby acknowledging that all South Africans White and black were affected by the war, and many were participants all right Yup so. Why, why why did they go to war? So here's the war far away. Though so far away so it as as with many wars, there's a long history to it. So the origins were complex, and they stemmed from more than a century of conflict between the bowers and Britain, so let's with a little background, the first European Settlements Africa was founded at the Cape of Good Hope in sixteen fifty two. And thereafter administered as part of the Dutch Cape Colony. The Cape was governed by the Dutch east India Company until its bankruptcy, the late seventeen hundreds, and thereafter it was directly by the Netherlands. The Netherlands took over when the Dutch east India Company collapsed. The British occupied the Cape three times during the Napoleonic wars as a result of political turmoil in the Netherlands and the occupation became permanent after British forces defeated the Dutch at the battle of Blouberg in eighteen o six. So at the time, the colony was home to about twenty six thousand colonists settled under Dutch rule and a relative majority still represented old. Dutch families brought to the Cape during the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. However close to one fourth of this demographic was of German origin and one sixth of French huguenot descent, so you got a little bit of a mix. It's mostly dislike dissenters like descendants of Dutch people from way back when but also a little bit of German a little bit of French. So divisions amongst these people were likelier to occur along socioeconomic rather than ethnic lines, however, and broadly speaking colonists included a number of distinct subgroups, including the bowers, so the bowers were like the the farmers for all intents
Its Worth a Shot with Principal Scientist Dr. Rinke Bos
"Hi Dr Boss. Welcome to the WO- Med I am so grateful. You're able to take the time to speak with me. I can only imagine how your world is right now and I know you're probably inundated with interview requests and being pulled million directions right now so i. truly appreciate you making the time to speak with me today. Thanks on your. Experience to be here so I like to use the wome med. As a space for women in medicine to kind of come together share their perspective journeys through the field. It's kind of like an educational space where people can come and learn about different careers as well as all the incredible things that women are doing, and you're just one of those women that have truly stood out to me in this time is Cova. Time of all the hard work that you're doing? Your things has been been an extraordinary. Ah, six months I special time. Yes, for sure I'd love to start with. How did you get interested in immunology? I. Don't think it starts in the during my university. Studies funded biomedical, Health Sciences, okay, and even all the tedious yeah. was part of it very small part excavate a lot of different. Things about science Yet. At My my university, but immunology just yes, put my attention. It's so complex that it's. It's. They're older. Time We. We get sick. Everybody gets the once in a while and I just thought it was very interesting. To learn more about this to learn about the interaction of your immune spells, and what the effects are on your on your health. Though was the first time. They really interested in that, and and then I started to follow some additional courses and get even more interested, and then when I was looking for a PhD position I found PD position where. they were looking at the interaction of the immune cells with cancer. And that's really caught my attention. I really wanted to learn more about that. So what I studied you might teach and I concede to study during my post office well. And it was all quite fundamental research. And, then at some points really fell to make. A step. Closer. WHO. More, developments of Office scenes or medicines. To really get closer to using the knowledge we have to help. Increase enhance health. In the world, so to really get more closer to working on on something that really used to in the clinic. And its friends words to into Johnson and Johnson. That's amazing. So how many years school did you have to go to for that? Annetta less university is. Four years. Edited Ph d of about five six years in post broker five six years. Yeah it. It definitely does year specialist. Did you have any role models in the industry that you really looked up to? Now actually. Especially in the Netherlands. The industry is not very common for people to make the transition from. Industry is not really a promoted is seen as a negative thing. Oh. Yeah so people think you? If you want to do good science, you should really stay academics. And it's changing a bit now but I. Did my post DOC in the US? And ask? In the San Diego in La Hoya a description of the research. And there learned it's. It's very different, indeed this. A lot of people. Actually just moved to to industry to be able to contribute even more as science. And Development of medication ethics. So that's. A big change there. I yeah I met more people that worked in industry and I learned is fascinated me and I really wanted to try to work for me fell and I'm very happy. I I made the transition to industry. I didn't frequent I i. read it like Oh. That's wonderful. I'm glad you made the transition. I bet there's going to be a lot of. New Students and you know women. In industry that would that will be looking up to you and I. Mean you've kind of paved this new pathway? Then in the Netherlands. Yeah I hope so I don't think contribute to this in dense them. Yeah, now because we working together winter with academic partners fan I hope that they actually see. Dance we really went to. Use The science for the development of teens, and not just making fixing. To make money so yeah, I think this price is, it's a really terrible of course, but it's also giving yet many opportunities for people to learn more about science and academic and industry, and it's all having the same bull and working very closely together.
Twitter Will Be Fun Today - The College Kids Who Hacked Into Twitter
"Today's guests. His Hip Awan CEO of Afani. Secure and private cell phone service locum his Heeb. Thank you Laura for home. You'll show. You were one of the investigators in touch with the young people who hacked twitter last week and gain control of prominent accounts, including those of Joe. Biden Obama Elon Musk and others as well as those of crypt companies like coin, base and finance, and when they had control those accounts, they were soliciting bitcoin from twitter users. How did you get in touch with the hackers? So Laura be in like. four-time itself, so then after I was so pissed off that angry that I said I need to solve this problem, and so I've entered into a form that relates how they have those accounts holiday getting pretty much all the ring of how they operate so. When you say that they had had your twitter account, nor they have my Sim Sark four times. Okay, and when you say Sim, swaps just described that in case, listeners does up. Does improper pretty much. What happened is like someone will take the form so the underground market like think about Ebay, but like I knew democracy with information. So you said your name, your information social security number your call logs your life, your life, location or anything on you. If I say hey, I need to find out for Laura Shane telephone number, and they'll give me telephone number will give me a call loss to give you. An everything comes through telephone numbers of numbers unique, and then if I say. Say Hey. I need to take the phone number 'cause I need so they will just prophet abuse him that I control, and I need to pay them few hundred dollars now. Your formula not work anymore because I had control of Sim card, so then I use that telephone number to get into a g mail, facebook and twitter, so if you go on twitter, new likely rescinded to email our number. If it's telephone number you've got. Someone's adopted very common technique deployed across US for a long time. So. The twitter hack twitter said that their employees had been socially engineered, and that's how these hackers gained control the systems. Are you saying that? Some twitter employees have their account. Sim swapped like how how does that you or Simspon tried? These people relate to the twitter Hack Greg? You wanted to ask me like how to get in touch with them so I'm trying to understand. You, that of analysis himself, so started going into the industry into this form than trying to see how they operate and to Dodd funny, so which will provide the made acadia that probably that cannot be Simpson's. That's what we did an offer that. VINCI START GETTING customers. Have you would actually getting a lot of attempts to do so? You would getting Dempsey pretty much every week that someone prior to himself or customer, trying to like hack into our system and mend the failed. I got in contact David Mayhew call, they would email method you and they will do all kinds of attacks. You know they'll try to let pen to pen tests. The everything did and obviously in one of the cases restocked immunity stopping messing around it right I know what you're up to. And after I got in touch with him to signal and author that the lake. Not I won't say that become a friend, but I told them why you're doing this. Thank you know you should not do this multiple hackers and they said okay. If you don't have anything to do pretty much, does it okay? Why don't you get a job? He said job, and then they start feeding the all information to proved at. Legit than a lot of information and how I was getting information from a lot of talk of the vote. And when it all this happened that you got in touch with him and had it happened late four five months ago. Okay They were diverging to me not just for this hot, but for other purposes to ride like a kid discount. Lot of databases beach everyday, so they wanted to see that a hey. If I'm interesting in the database, just wanted to work pretty much. is not money. It's also about ego that they wanNA prove something that they would do something so. So Mike Context for not hacking, but they'll be into the songs that they had access to. That follows A. Up I didn't want to. Excessive today were passing me. Hey, today. This is for sale to do sports on tomorrow. This person's so on the deal stood attack. I got a message that will be fun today, and when this message I thought he'd be like a distributor barks. Like scam scams, and but after why? That's all the kind. We got attacked ten. Finance Accounting Noble at depth one time. I taught that it's just a third party API like you know you have like you know where your schedule. The in everything I thought that may be compromised, and that's how they got author. Riley said No. We have everything. A screen chart I tweeted screen shot, and after that is blue. Well and so, who are these people? who were the people involved in the actual twitter hack? The difficult to identity like frankly I don't know I can speculate, but obviously because someone security and privacy I don't want to speculate but I can tell you wanting like college. Kids are maybe like someone between eight, eighty, twenty, one, twenty, two, and they are video gamers. They'd metaphor armed, and they found fascinating for them. Dislike a game like you go into video game on you killing you do stuff for them. It's like that. They, probably living in some way or radio patterns right now in basement. Who does not even know anything? and. They just do it for fun. Obviously, money's there, too, but most of fun for them is just a today. And so originally. The way you got in touch with them was they were targeting these different cell phone accounts, and what does motivation and taking over the different cell phone accounts so for account you can actually to when people take account, they can actually destroy you financially emotionally ended up recently, though by financial I can say they can get into your county bank accounts ticket by Tiptoe through that they can buy a lot of levels of securities financially they can do. obviously going to facebook in an email to, and then they donor all information from your facebook, and then they start blackmailing you that. Hey, likely when a lot you have done this like you know you have this. And you have to pay me this information out there and a lot of people would have to pay them the money because they don't pay the money. They looted operation right so and then third party. They just become Parson Mike is the word processing me. blender used to take my county new. They cannot get anything, but they wanted to talk to me. Just fun for them like people. Some people are sick. Like how did they pick you out of all the different people that they could torture also the league, if not just me like everyday hundreds of people to get them soft, though I'm just one of them on average, every second medical become victim of since up, not himself but cybercrimes so. But I had the impression that this was primarily targeting crypto currency people, but you're saying it's any bundled nor I think eighty percent of people who was himself to an entrepreneur L.! And the new in the cases of those people is it like personal vendettas that they're trying to? You can make more money by a hacking Lord cell than anything else you know. is one thing but Lloyd is like one number one target Loyd and has professionals league doctor medical doctor then. In Lord other number one targets in suffers, and what is the motivation for targeting lawyers Don. Money don't happen. How do they monetize that Yeah, so I tell you doctors, basically busy less tech, savvy and rich. It's that easy to find out any doctor information. You can find out who the best doctor in the city and you consume. Stop Him. And once you get into that account, you can transfer money between accounts who can be that people have been? Going into the count, Simpson calling the bank making via transfer, and then just checking accounts. That's pretty common. For for doctors to clinics have a lot of money. If you'RE GONNA clinic, instead he did even like five hundred hundred million dollar distorted the front because Alaska. Election for them. Okay, so let's go back to the twitter hack. They were some names that were identified of people who are involved these names. In The New York Times article that quoted you as a source one was kirk. There were some other people ll and ever so anxious. Who were these people? And how did they know each other? So they don't. Know the Best Birdie. They just hang out on rooms like chatting channels lake similar people on developed talked with you. The pirates channels. We had people a go if they WANNA have information to the document industry for finding information. If I want someone associated Gordon dissipates on one. Don't get call for these people trade information. And you asked about like a leg. Imagine your lawyer and you are fighting for my open kiss. We begin go to the website by that long since he will. They are who they're talking to the day can. Make some delays on them. That's one thing but other than that. These people are just a game as they would play like you know different video games and kick the die, who was basically a source of the rate industry rock says they'll be extra agents, and they are in room for longtime and David. Obviously you want you want something you don't trust the new guy. The new guy who is basically the main culprit punching the entity because multiple reasons, but the main guidance, the just which had A. Reputation. If you say you want a username of Laura at Laura, Shannon inactive. You may not trust kick, so you can do this. Middle Diane Tell Them Hey, can you hold the money for because you have a good relation? Because like Ebid forums generally have a petition systems. You know so then you ve into this guy like you know every inch it He went to care. Concur depended he the credit employees but I. Don't think he was employees. And, then he gave him the concert start building. So this is just a middleman. He was just broken deals. You tell them what you want. He was just keep his car and transfer the money. The is completed that fall. And so so kirk was was saying that he was a twitter employees, but as you said, you don't think that he was, and he was essentially selling valuable twitter accounts, and if people didn't trust, Kirk, they would use ever so anxious as their middleman to get the different twitter handles that they wanted. Is that what happened? That's correct. Good Gig, only unharmed on in July of. July it was very recently. that. He actually came so obviously not trust someone admit. That soon. July seventh in the New York Times article are. Limited okay, but all right so but ever so anxious. How to longer reputation and. And that was who people are transacting with. And so then. How did BITCOIN come into this? All. On these things happen through Bitcoins, so the way it started was they were selling. This twitter handles four bitcoin and then later. How did the scam change? So I. Personally is what I personally think. That kid was in touch with the employees who was giving these accounts. For a few thousand dollars. And then. Either bribed him. Architects. Social Engineering Him. Legs because like hey can do. This is my. This is purely my speculation that you're working for so long. He warned the trust. Any may have said Hey, can you log in forbid I wanNA see how it looks like something that he made it something so the guy is pasta on. Hey, just do it, but don't do anything crazy. You Know Butt kicked. Decide Okay, man I can just go on or can also go online with I can do it I can. Can also go on like you know. All those accounts crazy. That's what I okay, but you're just speculating. You don't have any proof that or or do you know what? I don't have any proof of that I don't approve. Have critic probably do it? And Kirk? Is probably a guy called coup, which is on a farm for a long time, so he speculated that he someone that was in the industry for wide, but not. Approved that. Kicked it, but from all the action than everything it all points to cook. Irene so in a moment we're gonNA. Talk a little bit more about what happened. Exactly I, in sight, twitter and scam, but First a quick word from the sponsors who make this show possible. How much in fees are you paying?

Back to my conversation with his Heeb Awan. So, we don't know exactly how. Kirk got into twitter's internal systems. However Once. He or she did then what'd he do or or she do with their power? So. Kirk than they went to buy I think. Start with by notes I'm coin base. And the see your finance and he made it account Egypt first of all. What did it was did with other? Account. Okay, which means when you log in, it asks you to do a second type of security, which is hopefully. If you're in the crypto space, you have used something like Hugo, authenticate or key, and you're not using text message based second factor authentication. Where they sent a code your phone because otherwise if he gets swaps than than having no. Buyer so. Removed that and then keep going good thing. They added wall a secondary second. You know Autodata so now. I'll give example like you have my username seep, so they moved to a FE, and they're also removed. Jane, Email. And then they. Did possible reset. So the new email guard, the chain deposited garden the account. and. tweeted whatever they wanted. Well, and what were they tweeting? So, they were tweeting that you know. About Co. Ed Nineteen I believe like you know because of Covid, we like helping people. I don't remember the wording. Health Has Something and they said Back. And this is video any comments in YouTube. Actually they were so good that frankly sometime I get like you know Oh my God like the able to make it like a secondary thing. That's real you know and like, but this happens pretty commonly, and and it's happening for almost two years now i. It, really is the kind of thing where people think it's real I honestly. Had created a question for you, which is who are the people who are savvy enough to own bitcoin and know how to send it, but not savvy enough to spot. What to me seems like an obvious scam. Actually went on the Internet and are tweeted out this thing same thing I said like who are those people who can have sophisticated enough to buy Bitcoin, but knowledge to. Send. Bitcoin but I think leap Dick's everything. Like I agree people think okay. Let's give it a chance. You know it's like a lottery ticket. You know people may be, but they think what if this is true and other than that. If you like an must happening there, actually flaunted, be efforts on twitter. All the time with people are donating money on twitter, but they don't ask for anything they say hey, can you give me your Alfred Egland who this every day, so he will dollars to off fifty dollars for every person everyday. You'll say. Retreat this. I'll give you this money. So this happens right now and obviously As hit audible, read like you know when viewed come in people, people forget everything that you know. We have so many Ponzi scheme like so many scattered that happened that exist today could if I come to unity Laura investment scheme, which is a pretty good you know. He hit all the MACHIDA. But it only gives you five percent. You may not listen to that. Say Hey, Lord the Child who may tennis money tomorrow. You may skip everything. Cocaine is thousand and ten dollars tomorrow. Okay I'll take the risk from doing that. Hopefully I'm sure my listeners are savvy enough to know if it sounds too good to be true. But people do that I. Think I have estimated that around like maybe I. Just in this journal given us cam like. He put a lot of tens of millions of dollars and well not last week, but no, not over time overtime. Yeah, yeah, we'll be sending money, so there are enough food. I guess yeah over I mean for last week. The hackers did net about a little over thirteen bitcoin, which was about one hundred twenty thousand dollars, although analysts said that about twenty, thousand of it seems to have come from a suspicious address that they actually think controlled by the hackers to kind of make it look like this was legit and people were actually sending money. But then also by the way they could have netted more. However, Cuevas said that it did prevent more than one thousand customers from sending about two hundred and eighty thousand dollars worth of Bitcoin to the twitter hackers so oriented, so let's talk a little bit also about just what happened in twitter which was? Twitter blog posts. Hackers a targeted. Thirty accounts for forty five of those they reset the password and sent tweets from those accounts for eight of them. They actually downloaded that counts data, and then for thirty sixty legitimate direct message inbox, including one elected official from the Netherlands, and it was who. What do you think they could do with such information? I think it's A. Black, man that I've been talking to you about what happened with sin sopping. Let's think about it if you have first all that fool Phoolan that why didn't put? It wasn't like planned. I don't believe it was just like in the move in the heat of happened. BANDAIDS slaves. They clearly guy who just got drunken pretty might do everything but I think if you have access to like anyone, social media, proper social media like I have been I've received. Messages. And I but I don't believe that I think we have forged around. Believe the electoral, so, but if you have someone should media that maybe confidential information that can be misused by Stacey when leg if you do about it on dedic messages, a you know that's not confident that even with the journalist visceral broads. You know so I. Don't know who the information was. What fast, but that's video very very concerning and I believe this may happen on facebook or other social media from his. Because to same. Attack Factor. Yeah I definitely think that this is. One of those cases where it makes you want to just use encrypted social messaging APPS. Such as like signal or something, maybe what's up? So, let's just also talk a little bit about what we said before about how the hackers were able to remove two factor authentication on these accounts. Well, actually what they did I was. They changed the email address. And then the chain Laras Oh, actually bid on a there was A. There was an email. There was a blog post by somebody who had the at six twitter account, and they said they believed that the hackers change the address, but that when that happened, it did not send a notification to the original email address, but not I don't know if this person was surmising, you know six hundred interest in history, those belong to a hacker. Their the community of Hackers Gobi Twenty six hundred. That's like a court for hackers right. Not a quarterback, just like community for hackers and you were the hacker who ended up homeless anywhere. They will do attack into I think he would to. And he went into multiple you as homeless, but he was a hacker. And oxygen community belong to sixty name. Is this secretly off? I believe his name. And, but yes, but I think the first drift was removed and then. moved. To the letter. Control of it now thought it was the reverse, but either way.

Coronavirus: Third day of wrangling over huge EU recovery plan
"Seems to be a good deal of lip, curling, and or person beneath the mosques at a you talks on post. Pandemic Recovery Fund after four days of discussions agreement on the proposed seven hundred fifty billion euro fund appears away off. Some assessments of the general tone of the negotiations have even vote the dreaded, full and frank exchange of views, which in the diplomatic arena is the equivalent of at least one protagonist being flung. Through a window into a horse. Trough I'm joined with more on this point Naomi O'Leary Europe correspondent at the Irish Times. Niamey we'll we'll discuss the detail presently, but broadly. Who's disagreeing with whom about what? The main blockage is that there's a group of wealthy northern state led by the Netherlands that want the overall package. The thunder discussion to because because. They at home have domestic electorate that think the costs too much. And The Netherlands is heading for national election next year in March, and I think it's important for Prime Minister Ruta to be able to show to his electorate that he put up a fight in Brussels though. Is this just a really serving resurfacing rather? What's fairly familiar dynamic within the U you this idea that there is a a frugal nor Sunday profligate south. There's a lot of stereotypes at play. There changes though Britain is part of the discussion. It wouldn't have gotten so far as it has. If Britain had still been in the EU win vetoed dozen stage. I'm what's being forced to happen. Is that the states like the Netherlands and Austria kind of being forced to come with their use in a more direct way, they're not able to hide behind the opposition of Britain anymore as they have in the past, and you have alliances of smaller states rather than big blocking ones. Is it about the amount in total, or is it more about how that amount will be dispersed specifically whether it would be a grant or a loan which would need to be paid back at some future point? Yeah, it's both so there's a few things on the table. There's the common e you budget seven years. The Party Gotten Ryan to discussing then there's the recovery fund. Which is this one saw? A response to the economic damage of the pandemic that same to stimulate you con- economies. It's the new thing that would be funded by joint borrowing by the EU Commission that then be distributed to member states, according to need on some of the the the of that money would be in the form Graham that does need to be paid back by the national capitals, and that's controversial at to the frugal, because they're quite wary of incurring greater liabilities, also giving money with strict conditions. This lot of belief that this could you know? Why should any national governments being sensitized to run sensible budget if they think that they can just get money with consequences? So. They're pushing hard for a reduction. Particularly in the amount of grams. Then there are other questions. ID. Decide who gets and also. What kind of would you have? The money is spent.

Reopening schools during the COVID-19 pandemic
"Now we have contributing correspondent. Gretchen Vogel she in two other science news staff Jennifer Cousin Franklin Megan. whalen worked on comprehensive story on reopening schools during the coronavirus pandemic. Hi, Gretchen Hi, this is a very complicated story and tell you the truth. I'm a little frustrated because I. Just WanNa answers, but there are so many unanswered questions out there about current Ivars in children for example, how likely are kids to get an infection if they're exposed to an infected person? Do we have any numbers on that? The story was was fascinating, but also really frustrating to work on because we kept saying. Why are these answers so? There are no hard and fast answers, but there is accumulating evidence that kids newborns up to for purposes, eighteen are less likely to be It's not clear why that is, but it does seem likely that children are about one half to one third as likely as adults to catch the virus in the first place. That's not one hundred percent clear, but let's consistently showing. Showing up in a lot of data then once we get past that question of how likely is a kit? Get infected. We ask the next question. It's still open, which is if they do get exposed to infection and they acquire it. Do they actually get sick? That is also not a number that we know in part because there's so little testing of people who don't. Don't show any symptoms and to find out if somebody is infected, but not showing any symptoms, you have to test a whole lot of people for the trifecta of unknown. How likely is a kid to transmit this infection? So there is some evidence out there saying that even if they do get infected, they are somewhat less likely to share it to other people. That's correct. Correct. There were a couple of intriguing case studies early on I was a kid. In France, who was infected, a family friend was in a ski chalet with his family, and t caught the virus. He tested positive, but didn't yet. No, that between the time he was infected, and and the time he was tested. He attended ski school and Language School in his regular school. Officials, tracked down more than seventy of his contacts and none of them ended up being infected. Even two of his siblings were uninfected. All three siblings shared other viruses, some minor cold viruses. They all had it was that they had contact with each other, but the coronavirus did not pass from this child to anyone else. They could find so that's really intriguing, but it's only one case right right, so it's hard to extrapolate from that. What our story talks about are some newer data from France that are also intriguing in a little town north of Paris. There was pretty large outbreak in high school early February. Teachers happened to get infected way before anybody knew that the coronavirus was circulated in France and so two weeks between the second of February and the fourteenth February when the school went on winter break, the virus had a chance to spread a few weeks later, when researchers looked at how many people had antibodies to the virus, they found that thirty eight percent of pupils, forty-three percent of teachers and fifty nine percent of non teaching staff had been infected, the also looked however at elementary schools in the town and there they found three kids who based on when symptoms had started, and the fact that they also had antibodies to the coronavirus. They figured these three. Three kids probably had been infected by their family members, and then attended school, because they weren't very sick, but they were infected, and they checked with all of their close contacts, and it did not look like they had passed it on to anyone. So this is getting at the idea that there is a sliding scale that younger students might be less likely to carry INS spread versus older students in the high school years. Certainly babies seem to be least impacted and toddlers, and then elementary school kids, and then as you get past the age of ten or eleven, the risk of both acquiring and passing on the virus does seem to increase and high school. School kids seem to be fairly good at both acquiring and passing on the virus be not quite as good as adults, but there does seem to be an increasing risk of both catching and passing on the virus as you age, but that's great news right if that's true, that is really good news for safety of babies for the safety of preschools, and for the safety of elementary schools we have now are setup. We have the limited knowledge we have about their risks of getting sick or infecting others, and then we are talking about reopening schools as the end of summer approaches. What parents would administrators governments are trying to do is balance the risks to. To the health of children and staff against the risk of not having their kids in school, what kinds of things that have taken consideration on that other side of the equation? What our kids missing out on besides actual learning? If they don't go to school in the fall, such a balancing act, because schools are really really important for kids and for society as a whole right, they go to school first contacts, and for their emotional and social development, and then lots and lots of kids and the world get a fair amount of their food at school. Especially, the most vulnerable kids are really dependent on some of the food programs that are at schools. Also sadly, schools are place where some of the most vulnerable kids who might be subject to abuse at home where some of those signs are picked up, and where other adults in their lives can raise red flags and say hey. Maybe something's not right here, so there have been signs that child abuse cases have also been going up as kids have been staying away from school. There's a lot of pressure to reopen schools, but there's. There's not a lot of information about how to do that safely. But as part of your reporting on this year team did some pretty extensive research into how all these different programs that have reopened have fared he. You talk a little bit about what you looked at and what you're looking for. We did to a lot of research. We're intrigued because I live in Berlin and Jennifer lives in Philadelphia and Megan lives in Washington DC. DC Jennifer and I, both have elementary and middle school aged kids Jennifer's were at home. Mine started to go back to school with other kids in Germany at the beginning of May. This part time just a couple of days a week. My fifth grader for example went four days the whole week part time, and then was two weeks off, and then again went four days, and then was two weeks off. They were trying to keep. Keep class sizes super small so that if somebody did happen to be infected and attend school, they would only infect portion of their class. Not Everybody and they tried to keep the desks spaced far apart, so they were trying to keep as few in the classroom as possible so that they can keep a distance from each other. That was my experience in Germany and we wanted to know how other countries had approached the question. We looked at everywhere from South Africa to Benin to South Korea and Japan and Taiwan and lots of countries across Europe. Canada had opened some schools. Most schools in the US had stayed closed in part because summer vacation tends to happen a little earlier in the US, so we took a look at what had happened in those countries that had opened up to different degrees, for example the Netherlands started back with their elementary schools I and small classes, and only part time, but then they gradually as. As things went well, and they saw very few outbreaks in schools gradually opened more and more than we at the same time checked to see if overall rates of infection in the country had changed and in many places we found they hadn't. There's a big caveat there. Though most of these countries had fairly low rates at the time that they open schools, and they had the system place when an outbreak maybe happened to detected and to identify context and isolate them for the two weeks that you. You need to isolate people to make sure they're not going to pass that on. So what is a common practice? When a student has positive for coronavirus, some places would close the whole school. If one student was infected, other places would only isolate the people who had been in direct contact with the student, so their classmates with a subset of classmates that they had been attending within their small reduced size classes, and then that teacher, or any other teachers. We didn't see a big difference in. In end outcome race between those approaches. What did seem to make a big difference when you looked at all these different schools what seemed to make the most difference was close a small, so the kids could stay separate and wearing masks. Now there were different approaches in different places for example, most places in Germany made them optional, although some in some schools, everybody had masks on it and others only when you came in or were in the bathroom or in the hallways. Did you wear your mask? Israel was one interesting example where they did not try and reduce class sizes, so they went back to their fairly large classes thirty to forty kids. But they really did mandate masks for everybody, and that seemed to go k, until it got super, Super Hot, and then it was just impossible to ask people to wear masks all day, and so the health department and the Education Department said Okay Fine. Let's leave the masks away, but then about two weeks later they had a humongous outbreak in one high school, and some other smaller outbreaks in other places as well so it it. It suggestive that asks. There were making a difference when they couldn't do. The distancing that were happening in other places like Denmark where they they went to great lengths, and even held classes, churches, or outside, or whatever to keep kids as far apart as possible and as much fresh air between them as possible I'm in Indiana and I actually have my daughter in daycare right now because I'm in a county with st low levels. I am very nervous about it, and we keep our eye on the numbers. Because that's what I see as really important gauge for whether or not, it's safe to have my kid go to a situation with six other kids. Do you feel like that background level what your community spread like is important for what's happening at your school. Absolutely, Yes, that is a huge caveat that cannot emphasize enough that the background level of community spread needs to be at A. A low enough place that you can identify outbreaks when they happened in noticed them, and that you can take measures to try and slow them down I. Think if that situation then the harm to kids. Keeping schools close vastly outweighs the potential risk of opening schools right now. Schools are closed colleges or closed, but once the university kids come back, and all the schools are open. We might see a very different background that we need to take into consideration. And Be Flexible. If school need to close again, absolutely universities are such a different situation than high schools elementary schools I mean as we talked about the risk increasing with age, so I think that's going to be a real issue in the fall as universities try to open back up. What do you think are the main takeaways from your review of all these different openings in different countries and in different schools? It's still a little unsatisfying, yeah. Is operatives data are really of still released sparse and it super frustrating, because it's such an important question. It feels like we should have better answers, but we simply don't yet. I do think the main takeaway is is you have to be flexible if to recognize that you can't go back to pretending that the viruses and there or if you do you're GONNA end up with big outbreaks and you're. GonNa have to shut everything down again. Like happened in Israel. One other interesting takeaway that I found was that when we looked at the outbreaks that had been identified, it was frequently teachers who were more affected than kids often. Often it was hard to tell because there were very very few cases where people had really carefully done the tracing that they did in that town in France, but it looked at first glances, or maybe the teachers were spreading it to each other more than to and from the kids. I think that's something that's important to keep in mind as we move toward reopening, because teachers are better able. I think than kids to do the physical distancing. I think it's it's helpful to realize that. Maybe adults are the bigger risk factor than the kids I know. A lot of teachers are super worried about going back for good reason we know as parents and teachers. The kids are generally really good at spreading germs. Happens every single winter exactly and so when the middle of pandemic where people are dying, and then somebody says well. You have to go back and stand in a classroom with even half of the normal kids. In contact with these lovely little people who you really enjoy being with, but you also see his German accelerators All, day long is definitely giving a lot of teachers. Pause for good reason, but I think one of the things that we did see emerging as a pattern was the teachers maybe should be wary of each other more than they need to be wary of their of their students I do think also that reducing class sizes and finding some sort of creative hybrid solution where kids. Kids are in school part of the time, but then doing the distance learning also part of the time. I think that's GonNa to be unfortunately the way forward for now until we get things a little bit more under control. We've talked mostly about anecdotal findings, so far are their studies in schools that are taking a look at this and going to give us some good. Good answers. That's another thing that the story mentions. There are a couple of real studies that are starting in the UK there researchers who have started projects at several schools where anybody who wants can be tested both for antibodies and active virus, and so they're hoping to get a better picture of when somebody's infected. How far it spreads in a school and in Berlin and in. In the state, German state of Bavaria also very projects have started all right. Thank you so much, Gretchen thank you Gretchen.

Animal Migrations Track Climate Change
"Change is altering the migration routes of animals worldwide. Here's a look at new research on how to species have been affected first mule deer. Every spring in Wyoming vegetation I appears at lower altitudes before progressing up the mountainside, migrating mule deer, follow and forage on this Green Bay, but as a changing climate leads to more frequent and more severe droughts. The Greenery is not as bountiful as it used to be. For Her PhD research at the University of Wyoming Ellen Atkins tracked mule deer as they to the green wave, the green up lasted across the landscape for about half as long in drought years in comparison to wet years, and also the order of green up along these routes were less sequential, so an ascents drought compresses at reshuffles the green wave, and just makes it so that this forging bonanza that dear depend on in their spring migration is really compressed in time, and although the deer were able to keep up with the faster green wave, the nutritional value is lower leaving the animals less prepared for the challenges of the year ahead. Meanwhile in Europe. The population of swans that spend the winter in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands is declining. But when researchers looked at the data more closely, they found an increase in the wintering population of swans in Germany. It turns out that since the nineteen seventies, the swans wintering habitat has shifted an average of thirteen kilometers to the east each year. What we think is that the swans like do spent time in areas where it's five degrees Celsius, and this item has shifted in the same rate as the swans shifted eastward sets a strong indications for us that and actually move with this temperature line. Russia announced of the Netherlands Institute of Ecology. Her team also found that the swans. We're spending less time in their winter homes before flying back to the Russian. Tundra to breed. Neither the mule deer, nor the Buick Swan is endangered, but the findings have broader importance for our understanding the conservation of migratory animals because If you stop thinking of protecting certain plot of land, it's not just the current situation that is their nature is dynamic, and the species that are present now might not be present in ten years time, and not because we didn't protect, but maybe because these species are actually dynamic in ways. We need to include this resilience and the dynamics of nature into our legislation and management.

Netherlands has been what they call an intelligent lockdown since March twenty third. Allow it up to three visitors into people's homes on the strict condition that they keep to that one point five meter distance, but this policy was met with a surprising amount of criticism. In, an opinion piece written for the Heads Parole Newspaper Journalists Linda Deutz who specializes in gender issues criticize. Are I've em because she argued that sex is a human right and that fee.

For example, meet with the same person do have physical or sexual contact for example, a cuddle, buddy or six Budi provided. You are free of illness. Make good arrangements with this person about how many other people you both see, the more people you see, the greater the chance of spreading the corona virus. That seems pretty reasonable so far, right? Let's continue because you see. Our VM also has advice for people in a relationship with someone infected by krona virus, or in quarantine with suspected symptoms. They say quote.

Should they have any fear. I don't I wouldn't. I don't want to speculate of anything like that but no I I. I don't think that it's just it's a tragedy. I mean that's all you can say about it. I mean having three open cases on our part the the reason I ask is you know obviously there's been a lot of coverage of these cases. Do you think it's unusual to have so many in high profile cases in such a small area I don't really want to I don't really want to go on that lamb and say that it's disheartening and it's in our post district in so we want to we wanna solve them and concerning. I mean I it is concerning that. That's it's happened in one community and you have three the SP alone is marquis. It is concerning but people don't need to be scared. there's good people and they want it solved in any of these cases or four in all of them. Do you think it's someone local. That's living within the community. We're not ready that we one thing hanging in investigations. You don't WanNa pigeonhole yourself in trying to focus on one area in lose sight of the bigger picture he wanted to thank thank outside the box so we don't like to say that want to pigeonhole ourselves and just focus. Maybe this is the one area. We want to keep wide. I guess a wide angle that look at all possible options when it comes specs. Where are you at each case. Would you say well. I've been asked that before and and really the the only answer in the most refined answer I can give you is one step closer from yesterday. I mean we're just one one step closer. I do step in there and talk to these guys. He's detectives every so often and there's ever day they're just sitting back there and doing they are working on this case and that makes me feel good because it makes me feel like well. You know what one step closer or better off today than we were yesterday just as Jason Allison Ellis's case rumors swirl around the small town but who would kill a mother and daughter who were such pillars of their community and the way in which they were killed. Was it a personal national attack a cousin who lived maybe about fifty yards from their house about six weeks after it happened. There was a knock on the door and officers wanted to know if this vehicle had been there. They knocked on the door of the House across the street and ask asked why. There's a young man living in this house. Do you think he might be selling drugs or you think he might be responsible and illegal activities. It was like they were trying to look for a suspect ex- bright there I think if they were pudding suggestions you know in into the ears of the neighbors it's like they didn't have any evidence these three murders and no suspects but the deadly crimewave was far from over in Bardstown fifteen months after Kathy and Samantha Netherland were found found murdered inside their home and two years after Jason Ellis was ambushed on his way home a new tragedy would strike another Bardstown family this time unfortunate July weekend. If you have any information in the murders of Kathy Samantha Netherland call the Kentucky State Police at two seven. Oh seven six six five oh seventy next time on Bardstown. I know my daughter and yeah I know. She would never just up and left her family. She would or not left me and her daddy either say type of everything but unless what happened to you you know you get up with the morning goes with it. It's never never off your mind..

"Well. We could not get a hold of Kathy Sister Stacy Herbert. She did speak at a press conference when you pray for them him. Please pray and say a prayer that dumb one. We'll have the courage to come forward and shed light on on this terrible crime. Whoever killed Samantha was only slightly less cruel to her mother Kathy as parents. We pray the Kathy happy. Do I dodge quickly so she didn't have to witness. The vicious death her child suffer. It's obviously incredibly difficult halt when you somebody like can't get Samantha. It's the worst thing is the last thing you're thinking where you Gomez. They're always always on our thoughts in mind. This time of year particularly is really difficult because you think bounded beauty of spraying in the in the refers of nature in just knowing that that that's when they left Earth it really shatters chatters word of the piece of spraying. I don't really explain it other than to say that. There's just a part of its and you never get back back in you are to in life differently because of that until you experience at this type of loss. It's so hard to put it into meeting for for people that may be haven't in you know it really is the loss of part of who you are. It's still so hard to this day to just accept the fact that they're not here in that that they left the earth under bad circumstances the misery that the killer or killers 'cause is profound dione and if someone could understand that coming forward would would just give so much relief as well as justify. Caffeine Samantha's passing to some degree you know it. There's nothing we wouldn't do. There's nothing we wouldn't give You know to to know what happened to have answers. No matter what happens no matter what the answer is a resolution. This is never going to explain or justify or or make their deaths. Make sense so you yeah I know for for me. I try not to focus on why it happened because there's nothing that Kathy or Samantha did in wife that would explain the violence that that was brought to.

"Like it's. It's sad you know it kind of gets lost in a lot of the coverage. I think a lot of that is because of the way the family has handled it in the family. You just wants to keep it private. I spoke to Kathy's sisters on the fifth anniversary history of it and they said that they grieve just as much as anyone else and they understand the way that other people these other families have handled their cases but in their situation and their situation is very different they they've handled it their way and that's kind of Trau- closer together an inward word rather than outward Scotty sharp members responding to the Netherland home that Spring Day just one month before the one year Iran Averse Serie of officer Jason Ellis murder just a few miles off the bluegrass parkway. He makes his way down. Stephen Foster Boulevard passing the church where Jason's Jason Funeral was held and layers upon layers of cornfields before arriving at the Netherlands home just across the street from beverage carry out did go to the scene but I mainly went and did interviews around the community I'm trying to the information is a detective on that particular. The case of course had the interviews some of the family members you know and I and during that time with those family members yes I got to learn a lot about Taffy and Samantha. You know what kind of people they were and they were good people and they highly of the community and so you know that was in my heart broke for for for their family was extremely difficult. Cathy was a teacher. They're in in Bardstown. That's actually how they got reported the someone to go check on. She didn't show up to work then that next morning warning and she's highly thought of the Henry she had recently lost her husband to fight with cancer and so they were still creating over that and it had been tough on a two girls and Kathy as well. you know fan during during that process of those interviews. Samantha was highly intelligent young lady. She was getting ready to go to prom I'm looking forward that she got her prom dress and everybody was her family was excited for four. Har- and so he was again at heartbreaking absolutely heartbreaking. The family has been pretty private over the years. We reached out to Holly Netherland Millions Cathy's older daughter but she declined to be interviewed but she did speak to the media briefly right after they were killed and now what to know why why would somebody go and attack my system. Why would somebody shoot my mother. They'd like to stay low key and and we were we respect that they were always in constant communication with him. Our detectives are so and they it's been really really supportive. KS Fee in this process and they are good people I can't sing much praised about him as much supported that they are. You know sometimes families in it's understandable well sometime if the case goes along and it's not solved you know they get their doubts. There's there's concerns some criticism awesome sometimes and they never been like that and they're just really nice good people of course are opposed to this is a tough time in. I mean they're still dealing with it. Every day. We kind of hit roadblocks with their case alive just because because family doesn't WanNa talk but also because not a lot of people seem to know much about the case. Is there anything more that you can kind of. Tell us you you know one of the toxin. The town that we've heard is it seemed really personal against Samantha. Is that something that you the foul again. It's still an ongoing this station in in when I say that it's done. I'm trying to throw roadblocks to you. It's there's there's things things that in all of these cases that we want to as we say keep close to the chest the reason why we do that is because we we get tips and leads every day and we had to follow up so we have to find out which ones are are legitimate tips and which ones are way out in left field if you know what I mean I think it's it's out there. It was brutal. You know the the he was a a bad scene. I I don't know how much other way I can say that I it was but I I'm not. We're not ready to say that you know it was a a personal or anything like that. You know that sometimes you hear that in cases. I don't think we want to go there yet. but it was bad you know it was a very gruesome saying oh there's been very little evidence made public public but the scene did hold one clue that police followed up on we were looking for a new model around twelve to thirteen fourteen eighteen model and power at the time black and pal and that was the reason why is because we had saw some some footage on some security cameras in the area and we felt like that car potentially heads someone that knew maybe it might seen something. Nyan area or mud actually been participated in the crown. We don't know but we were looking for employees compound. We look for long term but but they've never located that car or it's driver the police ask them that for. They told me that the police asked him night and they said they couldn't. They couldn't think of anything and it just vanished managed. I mean they had it from what I understand. They had images from different as you travel along Springfield road different businesses that have these yeah they have surveillance cameras as you head toward the Bluegrass Parkway but somewhere bluegrass parkway cards disappears and they're we're not able to find any evidence where it went. They just know it was headed towards Bluegrass Parkway mother daughter. I mean they weren't caught up in anything bad. They were you know actually do gooders in the community farce yes during the course of our investigation we have seen they're just upstanding citizens a student and a teacher just like your neighbor. Nothing would would pop out stand down now. was there anything taken from the home. I can't go into them in December two thousand thirteen less than six months before she and her daughter are brutally murdered inside their home. Kathy writes a peculiar post host on her facebook page per eldest daughter. Holly is home for winter break from moorhead State University. The Post reads earlier earlier this afternoon. We heard a noise. I thought one of our two cats had knocked over something. We didn't find anything disturbed so he thought it was nothing boy. Were we wrong a little while ago. Holly opens our front door to go outside to pick up the mail and finds both glass panels in our screen endorsed shattered. We have taken picks and have carefully removed loose pieces of glass and the glass frames. All of the shattered glass pieces have been and swept up off the front porch. Guess I'll be heading to. Lowe's tomorrow to find replacements crazy. Hell unexpected events happen and there's been speculation that it's possible that the other daughter had some involve men will again. That's something I couldn't talk about unfortunately in every type of investigation like this we look at everybody's a suspect to certain extent. I don't we don't name suspects aches to we actually have one but you know we don't rule anything out but I can say that the the older daughter has been co-operatively positively an investigation and has talked to us in spoken to US and keeps in touch with us at all times.

"Contains graphic subject matter and has meant for mature listeners. Only you can see why someone might have some sort of to go after a police officer but who goes after a a high performing student less than a year after thirty-three-year-old Jason Ellis's gunned down in the early morning hours just off the bluegrass parkway a brutal the violent crime rocks the community again just outside of the Bardstown city limits forty eight year old. Kathy Netherland doesn't show up for work. She's a special education teacher at Bardstown elementary and the mother of two daughters. Her teenage daughter is also absent from school. Neither mother other or daughter could be painted as you know doing sketchy things in hanging out with the wrong people the mother was very respected very very well liked by her students. Kathy's father goes to check on her. What he discovers is a scene of horror. I think I read in the report says Oh the daughter Skull was smashed in. Maybe there was something emotional in there that would cause a person to be more violent more brutal but I think it was sending some sort of a statement and the fact that they died so gruesomely the fact that that kind of thing could happen right here in this area. It shocked a lot of people I hope no other family ever has to stand outside their loved ones how knowing that their sister fister and their needs are lying dead inside just steps away but completely unreachable. I'm Shay mcallister allaster this his bardstown not a lot of details have been given out about the Netherlands murder case over the years and no one seems to know a law so shea were and Bardstown and I covered the Jason Ellis KS this pretty extensively back in two thousand thirteen. Can you kind of catch me up like where things have gone and what's happened. Since since Jason was ambushed yeah definitely so of course the Netherlands family was murdered violently eighty one year later April two thousand fourteen and that was a mother daughter mother and daughter and mother was so well known she was a widow she had another daughter she lost her husband years earlier and she was a teacher at a local school and everybody just loved her so that was devastating into the community and the death was so violent it was. I mean stabbed multiple times. There's a lot of parts of that there. They were hard for people to listen to an in their home own home in their own home and it was there there is it wasn't burglarize. There's nothing missing. If I understand yeah I mean it's been tricky because it is one of so many unsolved cases of course they can't point the finger at exactly actly. Who did it but there are strange things about it like that that they didn't think it was a robbery? They thought it would be personal someone new on which was hard to hear to two. Why would someone go in there and kill this woman who was so loved in this community and her daughter so that one was it was hard. One Year Rafter Jason Alice Blogger Richard Caldwell lives in the next town over and thinks whoever killed the mother and daughter didn't know them but it was someone one sending a message these are his personal theories and not from the official investigation but as with all of the cases in Bardstown Richards theories series paint a bigger picture town looking for answers where there are none. The official story was that it was a random act that someone just burst burst into their home and murdered this woman and her daughter while not stealing anything their purses were still there untouched no valuables. The money was still there. Nothing was taken from the scene. I think that either the mother or the daughter just happened to be at the wrong wrong place at the wrong time and it followed them home. There's no way to prove that though and even with all the official investigations into what happens happens you know no motives established because there's never been any actual suspects charged in their murders. I think it was someone maybe miss misusing or abusing whatever power they had in the moment to guarantee that you know whatever they saw or a her wouldn't be shared with others. What we do know is that forty eight year old Kathy Netherland and her sixteen year old daughter Samantha were tortured and murdered inside their modest home on April twenty first two thousand fourteen Cathy was shot several times and Samantha was stabbed opt unbeaten on her head. Both of their necks were slashed. early on police say they aren't ruling this out as a personal attack doc and the Kentucky Standard reported that much of the killers attention seemed to be aimed towards Samantha Trooper Scott Sharp with the Kentucky State Police interviewed neighbors. Where's that day and learn who Kathy and Samantha were but not much else that spring morning he drives highway one fifty to their White House topped with the the metal roof just outside the Bardstown city limits in Butlin with The Netherlands. You said you did a lot of interviews in the neighborhood. What was the consensus of of some of those folks everybody we talked to in in those areas this if they didn't if they did know Kathy and Somme that they you know just talk so holly. How good a people they are? it goes back to your earlier question and just what kind of people that were. They were good people very good people. No one saw anything not knowing that would still be part of the miss gave him Kathy was a special education teacher at Bardstown town elementary a photo of her on facebook with another teacher. At school shows the light-hearted side of the mother of two the Brunette holds up a peace sign with her fingers nails painted bright green while wearing a green shirt adorned with shamrock pens a green sequined bow tie several layers of colorful beads around her neck and a tiny green feathered cap on her head. It's Saint Patrick's Day. Samantha was a sophomore at Bardstown high school. In fact she had just about her prom dress. It's strapless in navy blue with sequence wrapped around the waist and ruffles strip just across her knees. The strawberry blonde eighteen smiles posing snapshot in her new dress she was in the school choir on the academic team and the High Schools Young Leaders Program mm-hmm she had also just been accepted into the Garden Academy Program with Western Kentucky University. Those were members of Parkway Baptist Church and just a year earlier. Kathy lost her husband to a battle with cancer. I don't see how it could have been anyone. They knew because they were typical. Good people small town full go to church every Sunday I can't imagine either of them a sorting with with the the sort of people all who would be capable of that kind of thing but the detail about their cases out to me was the fact that that nothing from their home was taken that there was no evidence of breaking and whoever it was was allowed into the home newspaper editor Forest Berkshire Remembers Covering Their Your Story for the Kentucky Standard Forest takes us pass the newsroom and a squawking dispatch alerting reporters crimes happening in real time he walks us back to it was office. I was out in Bodoland which is just right outside of Bardstown there. The call came in the morning. We heard it over the scanner and it was a little details. We're a little foggy at that time. We run out there. and by the time we got there. Kentucky State Police were there and we started hearing the the name Netherland Orland and then one of my reporters at the time calls me and it's like hey yeah we're hearing that Samantha Netherland. I just did a story on her a week earlier about her being accepted to get an academy. The GATT academy is a very prestigious school stem school on the campus of Western Kentucky University very selective selective all and sure enough it was her Samantha and Kathy everyone who said that they had no enemies that there's no idea how something like this would happen is a very violent very brutal murder. Specially against the daughter Samantha from experts that we've talked to and that others have talked to have said that you know the majority of the violence was directed toward Samantha as if it was someone who's angry and by all everyone said Cathy was a very warm and engaging special education teacher who could have that bottle and have almost feel.

"So I it's funny a lot of folks in the United States, very fond of the European way of morality, all those sophisticated Europeans. Well, here's a story that should horrify you. According to euro news. A teenager said she was raped by two men died by legal youth. Asia in the Netherlands, it has now, emerged no pot. Hogan made a sad last post to social media last week in which she announced she would die within ten days, the seventeen year olds details. Her struggles with sexual assault, depression, and anorexia in her award winning biography winning or learning. She wrote in her book that use I assaulted at the age of eleven raped by two men when she was just fourteen years old. Fact, she hid from parents, because she was ashamed in her last post on Instagram, the young girl wrote the Chit stopped eating and drinking, and that her suffering was unbearable short, that her decision was final, and that she had not been alive for a while. I breathe, but I no longer live. She wrote a patient in the Netherlands, may readily receive physician assisted suicide if they're quote, enduring unbearable and uninsurable suffering, according to the Dutch life ending clinic, the seventeen year old consulted originally the clinic, she was too young legally minors, are eligible under certain circumstances. In two thousand seventeen almost sixty six hundred people died of euthanasia in the Netherlands, most of those people had untreatable cancer, but the Netherlands Luxembourg and Belgium are the only countries in the EU that allow voluntary euthanasia physician assisted suicide is also allowed in Switzerland Finland. There's no penalty for for physician assisted suicide such MP. Lisa westervelt visited pot HOGAN before her death and said she was impressed by the teenagers strength. I will never forget her. We'll continue her struggle westervelt told Dutch media de Golder Lander. The team was described as a mental illness warrior. It's hard to something much more evil in the media. Celebrating the suicide of a seventeen year old girl who was suffering from depression. In that is that is evil stuff, then it's truly evil stuff. Seventeen year old kids. Just horrifying. She she, she must have been suffering tremendously. The idea that the that the solution to that is suicide approved by the state and celebrated by the media is so sick. It's hard to know where to begin there's a person who presumably had several decades of life in front of her. One of the things depression, does it makes you feel like you're stuck in the moment. There's nothing happening beyond that moment the time slows to almost crawl being out of depression allows you to see beyond that, but the fact that a society then freeze that allow people to get the help of, of physician make it easy and available to kill yourself at seventeen years old when you suffer from anorexia. How this is the idea that suicides solution, and that you're helping this person is so perverse. But I guess when you think the light has no inherent value as a science. When you decided that life has no inherent value. There's nothing special about human life. Then this is just another decision. I suppose. What, what horrifying horrifying stuff was. Speaking of horrifying stuff, New York now has a new law, very humane law. They're banning the clawing of cats in the state advocates say the declawing is a cruel inhumane practice because the cats toes amputated. Well, I agree that declawing is bad from the little that I know about it. I'm not an animal owner. But question didn't they pass a law saying, even kill a full born baby? The same lawmakers who support the Bill and saying, it's cruel inhumane declaw, a cat believe that it is totally fine for eight abortion. Doctor to kill a baby at full term with the baby's head in the mother's birth canal. So yeah, they may have some skewed priorities. A post biblical world has some problems terms of its views of the value of life. I think that is fair to say, all right. Coming up, we're gonna talk about AO. See some weird ideas about economics of her own, but first, I'd like to take a moment..
