Last november. the ethiopian military has claimed all the victims were combatants. A claim disputed by witnesses on the ground.

The country is still waiting for results which will determine if the ruling coalition led by the ethiopian. Prime minister abi off. Med stays in power.

I via sade was a very short operation to apprehend members or he called the criminal clicks of the tps. Which is the party that are was administering the i region out of state so this operation low enforcement operation as it was called in shelley has more food into a civil war added. Trust gun into now these horrific horrific out come off a war. That displeased as you say. More than two million thousand sunday when we don't know this yet the war is not ending. There is no end in sight for that and three hundred fifty thousand more than standard and fifty thousand civilians in informing zone according to the way so the bombing came on top of that which is onto stick. The military is saying The targets were combatants but all information coming from the region including reports that we have filed. Indicate that this was a market airstrike on the market. And the the the the the victims are civilians including infant tutoring there The army still maintains that the targets were Where where combatants. And there is no expansion us to why civilians are the pictures of civilians are emerging if we go by the army's interpretation of things so this is the the cumulative effect of the war that has been going on for eight minutes. So can you talk about This bombing in particular And the fact that the youth ethiopian military has admitted that engaged in the bombing and a what is the cause of the ethiopian attack on hand. The use of eritrean soldiers sometimes disguised as theo paean. Soldiers in the mass.

There is a renewed conflict so we don't know if this bombing of a marketplace has to do with the lowest Defense forces are facing.

"The median sale price of an existing home rose to a record three hundred fifty thousand three hundred dollars last month. That's the latest from the national association of realtors. Sales fell in may for the fourth straight month as competition for the few homes available continued to push up prices last week. Zillow announced an update to its tool for estimating home values saying the changes allow its algorithm to react more quickly to market trends nor miller is a professor of real estate finance at the university of san diego and a consultant to companies that create these kinds of automated valuation models or atm's for banks and the government. He says a lot of the data comes from the multiple listing services brokers use to share information about homes for sale to used to be that the multiple listing service day that was reported monthly. And then weekly and right now is reported daily so we are getting more towards real time data and and that's probably been the biggest improvement and evaluations on the in the models especially in quickly changing marketplace in terms of the machine learning. We have a long ways to go. It turns out to be labor intensive. It turns out to be hard to do it. Well i don't wanna give the impression that That the research is done yet But the data just keeps improving so a lot of our listeners are probably familiar with the estimate which is zillow's proprietary model. But i understand. It's not just real estate. Companies that use them but banks and regulators who is using these all your banks and thrift institutions that make mortgage loans will use a vm. sometimes the only value estimate the treasury uses them Fannie mae and freddie mac that by most of the mortgages in the country used vm's and mortgage investors security investment bankers use them so they're quite heavily used in the business to business context as well as Business to consumer context. How does the lack of supply and the rapidly increasing prices and in many markets affect the accuracy of these models and the stakes for getting it right when prices change rapidly whether it's up or down appraisal models both manual razor appraisals and abm's tend to be less accurate and it is harder to appraise now having said that abm's do a pretty good job because they can't consider not just past sales but current listing prices and search activity and other factors like that but it is harder in a rapidly changing market. And you're going to have more air in a market like today than you would in a market does sort of steady state clipping along a two percent or three percent appreciation rate which might be historically more more typical than today. There's been a lot of concern recently about racial gaps in appraisals with black owned homes appraising at much lower values than very comparable homes in white neighborhoods and. I'm wondering if that shows up in these automated valuation models as well or is this potentially away that we could address those gaps. Well there's two things to keep in mind one is that. Adm's are agnostic with respect to race. Ethnicity they they don't know what they don't care. It's not in the models at all even unconsciously. They can't consider it. And so you know there's less likely to be any unconscious bias as you might with with an appraiser we can also test for disparate impact on different racial groups. And we have done that. I've been involved in research on that topic and And we can look to see if there is any bias and sometimes there is but again generally the atm's are not biased and It's one of the reasons why some of the regulators of thinking about relying more abm's because of the fact that There racially and ethnically neutral with respect to who's in the household but they can perpetuate bias in terms of the baked in bias. That's in some of the data that goes into these models right comparable sales for example if you're comparing homes in a black disinvested neighborhood It's going to be lower than a white neighborhood. That's more affluent. While you're you're right that if the comparable sales are lower priced And if that was baked in because of past market behavior then the abm will interpret those as comparable properties without regard to why they're lower and so you're right it might be baked in. Do you see a future in which we won't have manual appraisals. Yes i tell my real estate students to go into commercial appraisal if they want to go into appraisal or if they go into residential going t unique properties because the run of the mill. Typical tract. Home or condo can be appraised so well by abm. There's no reason to compete with it. Is this displacing appraisers. Yes it is and we are not seeing a lot of people enter residential appraisal as a result of it or if they do they have to the inter on the technical side and understand statistics avium models as well so yes. It's causing displacement. Just like so. Many other technologies have displaced people nor miller teaches real estate finance of san diego and now for some related links. Speaking of racial disparities. In thome appraisals. Reporter natalie moore did a deep dive for wbz version of her story also aired on marketplace in chicago researchers compared houses with similar features in neighborhoods with similar socioeconomic characteristics. They found that houses in predominantly black and latino areas appraised for three hundred twenty four thousand dollars less on average than those in white neighborhoods that gap had increased more than sixfold since nineteen eighty earlier this month. The biden administration announced the broad strokes of a plan to address inequity in home appraisals through potential enforcement under fair housing laws and regulatory action. And a couple of years ago. I reported on the obsession. Among some homeowners and aspiring homeowners with online home valuation tools. Does prices have marched. Mostly up over the past decade. It's tempting to check your own zest. 401k because a measure of wealth but owner. Beware after its recent. Update zillow says its median error rate for homes that aren't on the market for seven percent meaning half the time. The actual sale price falls within plus or minus seven percent of the zest emmett. The other half. The gap is larger. As i found out. Realtors have sort of a love hate relationship with these online estimates because their clients sometimes end up with unrealistic expectations about what their homes are worth. Just for fun. i checked my house. On red fins zillow chase and realtor dot com and got a wide range of estimates as far as forty thousand dollars apart all the links are at marketplace tech dot org.

It's a little extreme. But is there anybody in this radio family right now. Who will admit. Oh yeah. I told a lot to keep him interested to never happened alexis. You've never lied to a guy to keep him interested. Reagan's have you ever been lied to in order for someone just to keep your interest. I'm sure i mean look at you. Wouldn't want to part with this very true. I can't tell. I mean. I think it's a rare situation when you find out the even lied to. Would you stay in the relationship. If he found out found out depends on. How big lie was that situation. Obviously not no you gotta get diabolical. Evil crushed your dreams south in order to keep you what she sporting up top. You know what i'm saying. My wife lied to me about being pregnant. And then we got married and she lied about having the longest pregnancy in the history of the world which was six years okay. Good point though was Do we rule that lie out because it would become so we'll take that out. We'll take taking away pregnancy. What is a lie did you tell him you. You're interested in something and you really weren't maybe a huge baseball fan and you're not think that's how big can it be so whether it's small or large we want the lie that you told to keep them interested. I love hunting. You hate going hunting hunting but you just like to go because you think you'll keep him interested in you because he likes girls that like to hunt. The case may be fishing. I know as a big would that kind of thing. I come from a long line of people. Who are not satanists. When i actually are satan delight about that so one triple eight four one to twenty three thousand five hundred forty one as tj. Also his facebook twitter at the ace. Tj show you can be anonymous. What is and maybe you're in the. You're still living that lie to this day. Maybe it's been five years. You're still doing it whenever that is just you've had to just roll with it forever now.

You told to keep him interested. This is kind of along the lines of what we were talking about. A second ago said. I made him believe that. I am a huge alabama football fan. I even studied up. So i can know some history and current players. You he is such a fan and it was such a big deal and he was really impressed. Actually i could not care less but now we are married with season tickets and we go to all caps every game and this is my life but in her case it work. Yeah what i just tells me.

There's a lady that dm does you dare come in here on them out alabama that. She said he told the lie to her now. And i'm curious how this plays out because she says a guy lied to me about his in other words. He said he was also of urgent and then she found out afterwards he was.

I managed to go an entire summer without ever having to actually swim. But i did jump on a big float a couple of times and flow to the lake and i would just step back onto the ladder float but i was all caps terrified. Now if you're out there how scared would you have to be though you're on the big float first off your jumped on the floor. You realize if. I miss our for tips over and i fall in the water. There's a problem and then stepping back off at thing back onto the boat again here. We go if i screw this up. This is going to be a problem. Because i can't swim. That's your good word.

He flew out from virginia to colorado to see her and he rolls up the brand new snowboard and the gear and they got to the top of the mountain she became it became evident immediately. He had no idea what he was doing but luckily there was a large group of people and sheaves ski patrol helped him get down to the bottom of the mountain and he spent the rest of the weekend in the bar and that's where he admitted. I just really liked you so much. I don't know how to ski patrol now. Are you upset alexis by that. Are you flattered that he like.

Homes have kind of public or semi-public aspect to where you can kind of walk into the courtyard which is really not the same thing as you're trespassing is different feeling. It's it's More welcoming understood that you're sharing that with not to your family but with other people who are visiting visitors and so that was a thing that i also absorbed and change your about. The images of the book are fascinating in the videos. You've put up a kickstarter. It's big it's twenty seven pounds three volumes When you imagine someone using it as sort of a a source book for otherness or you know to prime the innovation of any individual reader. Can you tell me what that looks. Like is seeing a photo of a ceremony. That looks very bizarre and then immediately going to wonder how i could use this at the rotary club or i mean how how are those. How do you imagine those people journaling about the images that they see in the booker. I take i i kind of designer crutch to life others. There's the design approach where you You treat life as a series of design problems and so you're kind of designing your life signing your lifestyle and your divining things in the part of the design approach is to interrupt prototype Brainstorm excetera an icy this book in that kind of a lineage of said you were interested in fashion. Well there's very strongly sensor meet trying to capture of the costuming digits traditional fashion. And i think they all have some ideas for future fashion and not just kind of fire. Early ornate bedecked jewelry but You know future. Futuristic garments can can be inspired by these. Because they're thinking different. I would say the same thing about architecture jury design. I think were you know. We tend to think of things as sleek and bare minimal. But that is just a fashion that that does not necessarily mean that. We're going to be like that in one hundred years right now. We painter cars the most boring color possible. But you look at some of the jeepneys in philippines or the trucks in northern afghanistan. They're just they're all colors will why nights free color color could be free that be covered screens with karst at screens on the outside What would they look like well. Let's look at some of these vehicles. Here they're being an inspiration but what they could be. So it's sort of like that. It's again. It's it's prodding what's possible and recapturing some of the solutions. That people in the past came up with and saying you know they might be useful again. It's a paper book. It seems like it would be cool to be able to browse all of these images on my ipad. I've got a big ipad pro beautiful screen. Are you consciously not expecting it to be viewed that way. What's what's your sense of the the digital rendering of this versus paper. The digital doesn't work right now. It doesn't work the screen big enough if you were to. I have this huge screen right now if you were to go through the pdf on a screen at least as big as could work I'm not really releasing it as a pdf for that reason because most people will attempt to redraw their phone ipad at the best and it just doesn't work would is good for us. A pdf is to search for things. So if i need to find something or a have search term in the caption. I can find things. And so I did have did reward. The twenty patron funders with a pdf. from those. and i'm gonna limit to twenty those twenty because I find that it just needs a lot of real estate to work on your mind also to flip down to read the captions without having to zoom in and I put damages up as individual images on instagram. but they don't have the same effect Something i learned from doing the whole earth catalog. And we'll leader cool tools. Is that the size of the real estate. Makes a difference. And i have nothing against books big kindle reader but this particular thing was envisioned in wants to be on paper in big book form native natural home and so I make no excuses for having only available paper. And it's sort of part of the joy of it is that you get to go on a journey flipping through it and with the thousand eighty pages. It will take a time that it takes several hours. Maybe three hours just to pay through it. Look at each page. Each image on the page. Not even reading any of the captions. So it's it's a it's a journey that that formed forces you to go on and some ways that you don't aren't forced with the digital so the short answer is no there is not going to be a digital version. It's only gonna be available on paper as of today the kickstarter campaign shows pledges of nearly three hundred fifty thousand dollars. Twenty six days to go and i see that you raise the goal of seventy five thousand within the first few hours of the campaign. What do the additional pledges enable you to do this project that you wouldn't have been able to do if you just succeeded in raising seventy five thousand well. The the the the main thing is that the more The economics of printing of the The more you print the more economical it is to print them. And so i had a certain number in mind of several thousand that we need to print the kickstarter goal was set early and low just to ensure that i made it. It was enough.

France takes careful vaccine approach to counter skepticism
"Happening. I in britain in america that simply because of the regulatory approval prices european medicals agency hadn't quite finished its testing. It wanted a bit more data onto the study studies little bit longer. And so the vaccination has been approved by the block and will be rolled out by the block in a unified effort. Yes what happened. Is that the eu father. European commission has set up a central purchasing arm which has bought roughly two billion doses. Vaccines from many different manufacturers. Among advantage of this system is that because of the enormous purchasing contracts the prices sometimes been a bit lower than in other places and having bought them as they become delivered they will be handed out to the european member states strictly in accordance with that population. And how about that sort of national level roll out how. How is that progressing. Already how do you see it. Progressing future well. The interesting thing will be with the benefit of hindsight to see what the best way of doing this. Every country is doing it in a slightly different way so for example in bulgaria. Medical workers got it first in germany and learns the very old. I in the czech republic. The prime minister andrei bobby. Scott i now he is himself ferry olden and somewhat overweight and probably did need to have the vaccine but he clearly jumped the here on the other hand. You could argue in countries. there's liable to be a bit suspicious of vaccines. It makes sense to have a high profile vaccination of a public figure because there's a fair bit of vaccines skepticism around this a great deal of vaccine skepticism around france according to the polls is one of the worst offenders here and they routinely i. I've seen number sang as high as forty percent of french. People say that they want to have this vaccine. And so all of this discussion is predicated on the biotech vaccine. But others are in the pipeline. I mean how do you see that playing into the dynamic here. Yes of course. The one that people are most interested in is the oxford astrazeneca. one because it's far cheaper than others typically costs about two two dollars rather than twenty dollars a day. Spur but patsy for more important it can be stored at normal temperatures. The fis vaccine have to be kept very cold temperatures indeed so it means the vaccinations can really only take place in hospitals or well-equipped centers. And it's much harder to get out into communities. There's a french well made by sun. Ofi which i'm sure will be pushing very hard to to get rolled out sued the other ones too including some wants from china and russia which some countries in europe a key to take because they're cheap and because they may be available but i don't think they will be very widely taken up and on that matter of availability. How is that unified distribution effort playing out eu solidarity over the purchase and distribution of vaccines is a bit of an issue. The european commission wanted this to be a great european project with everybody following the rules and the commission doing all the buying and selling the prices and having it out to everyone. And i think they sorts. I'm afraid to say as a great sort of propaganda coup if could pull it off and they more or less have pulled it off. But we've seen impatience in a number of countries germany in particular who say hungary actually one or two others. They're worried that the eu hasn't bought enough of the first one available. That's defies the vaccine said. They have bought their own supplies. That is very bad. In a way the whole reason why the eu went down the suit in the first place. Was i difficult to keep prices life but also to make sure that you didn't get into a situation where every country was bidding against each other by much more than it needed so there has unfortunately been a bit of that but on the whole the system seems to have worked pretty well. I think the biggest problems actually would. These drugs are log to be availability so much as ability to actually get the stuff out that and with that in mind then do you think that. This approach has increased european unity or just given more opportunity for divisions to arise. I think on the whole it's been a plus for the e you sort of as a central organizing principle that that seems to be pretty much the way the singers in brussels they see this as a bit of a triumph that they got everyone more or less to the start line more or less the same time. There's been a bit of teaching but not too much. The interesting thing will now be. Do they use this as a way to build up further. You wide healthcare competences. So will it be more of this coordinated by will be be more of this planning for pandemic preparedness and for instance declaring health emergencies on an e. You roll the leaving it to the national governments spaces. So yes i mean. The bureaucrats in brussels never miss an opportunity to build their empire fair enough. That's the business that they're in. And i think that if this goes well that will have helped that person long a bit and as opposed in in any case getting these things out and to the people throughout europe couldn't have come soon enough we all really at a very very bleak point in the even lucien of the pandemic in the second or even third wave. I've had three hundred fifty thousand people in the eu. Already dad's up. The death rates in germany are close to a thousand today that set the whole phenomenon of creating and manufacturing and distributing vaccine in under a year is pretty remarkable. We lose sight of that. But it's still been an awful awful tragedy.

It was with him. She had her only child Jeremiah Junior. The turning point of UNITA's life came in nineteen, sixty four during the freedom summer. The student nonviolent.

America's next top chamber, modelled: the Senate battle
"In, America's elections just six weeks away. The most important thing to be decided is who will win the presidency. Time before. has there been a clear choice between two parties to visions to philosophies and two agendas for the future. There's never been a vision like this. Sleepy. Joe Jeff from. What pundits had been talking a lot less about is which party will end up with control of the Senate, the legislature's upper house. Attention and donations have focused on Senate races. This week is a fierce battle begins over the replacement of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader. GINSBURG. The president plans to use the power the voters gave him to make a nomination. Senators will use the power the vote gave us. Either provide or withhold consent. As we say, fifth. Republican senators are keen to get a nomination through before the elections. Earlier. In the year, the party seemed set to keep its majority but President Donald. Trump's handling the pandemic and racial justice protests have opened the possibility the Democrats could take it. In America's rigid two party system control of the Senate is a big determinant of what any government can actually get done. But forecasting which party will win control is more complex than it might seem. Predicting Races for Congress is a bit more complicated than predicting the race for the presidency. There are thirty five different races fought in different states between different candidates over different issues and often using different rules. Then Rosenheck is the economists data editor. I have spent the past few months building a statistical model that seeks to predict the results of this November's congressional elections for the House of Representatives, and the Senate in the United States and so how. Do you get past those complexities to t to model it then? So our model makes use of a few broad types of information. It first looks at the state of the race nationally using generic ballot polling as well as the president's approval rating, and if you other predictors to say, okay, we think this is going to be a good year for the Democrats a good year for the Republicans overall. Then it drills down to the state level and. says. Okay. What did we know about this Senate race before we saw our first poll of that race? Well, we know how it voted in past elections. We know if there's an incumbent or not. We know the candidates fundraising totals. If there's an incumbent, we know how they voted in Congress. We know how much experience in politics candidates have, and then the final step is to blend those prior expectations with whatever the actual polls of the race. Say, and so it synthesizes all of that information in two and overall prediction by exploring three hundred fifty thousand different scenarios for the Senate and four point thirty, five, million for the house every single day. So it conservative explore every possible universe. We can think of that this election might take and see which scenarios are most probable but the universe that we're having these elections in is one that contains what the historical data don't, which is a pandemic. That is a very good point and it is definitely a weakness. We don't know whether one party or the other will benefit from that. But I think what we can say is that it would needs some pretty large effects that would need to be consistent and systematic across states to drive the results far outside the confidence intervals that we would expect based on decades and decades of data on past elections. With those caveats behind this then what does the model currently predict for? November. The model shows that the Democrats are a clear but narrow favorite to win back the Senate and currently shows that they have a sixty seven percent or two in three chance of winning the upper chamber, and it's kind of an interesting path of how they get there because assuming that they lose Doug Jones seat in Alabama, which is very conservative state they need to flip four Republican held seats and they only lead in four states and they would need to win all four that would be something of a tall order and what are those four states what are the issues there So the Democrats have pretty clear leads in Colorado and in Arizona in Colorado Democrats have nominated John Hickenlooper is a moderate former governor. He is currently leading in the polls against the Republican incumbent Cory Gardner. The picture in Arizona is similar you have a Republican incumbent and is now facing an extremely strong Democratic nominee in Mark Kelly. WHO's an astronaut? He's raised an enormous amount of money are model certainly thinks those two are not short flip the Democrats but eighty ninety percent that range then. There are two more states in North Carolina. You have a rather unloved Republican incumbent clue has been running consistently behind, and then finally there is main where Susan Collins, the most moderate Republican in the Senate. Now faces a very tough challenge from the speaker of the State House of Representatives who is up by maybe five six points on average. So you're got a headline prediction of the Democrat chances. Here is based on those four races being cinched up I mean is that really so certain? So. The reason why the model is so bullish on the Democrats is what we're calling the long tail, the donkey's long tail. There is a surprisingly extensive list of sort of Second Tier Senate races in which Democratic candidates are underdogs, but have a realistic credible shock to come from behind and win. So that's I Alwa- that's Kansas. That's both the seats that are up for election in Georgia, Montana Alaska and South Carolina, and even Texas so in every one. Of these races, Armato thinks it is more likely than not that the Republican will win however the odds of the Republicans win all of them in the Democrats win none are not so great and if Democrats even score one or two upsets from this very wide list of targets states, their position gets a lot

These CS:GO Coaches Just Got Banned For Cheating
"The go seen just got by gigantic cheating scandal and no I'm not talking about a bunch of nobody's getting caught hacking and the F. L. This happened at the highest level of competitive counter strike and three coaches were banned and on top of that, there's been a second investigation with up to potentially fifteen different cases of match-fixing happening at the semi pro level. It's been a rough month for couch. All right. So for a while now we've been streaming over a twitch dot TV slash the score, east sports with our talk show clouded, and if you love the stories that we cover here on donut mean well, you're GonNa love some of the conversations that we have over on twitch. We break down some of the biggest stories from East sports in streaming and we talk a little ship while we're at. So make sure you follow the channel and hit that notification button. So you know exactly when we go live and you can watch me get roasted for two hours straight the news. Of this cheating scandal broke day after esl one Cologne finished is published an investigation and they say quote we were made aware that by taking a combination of different steps of Bogin Cisco allows the coach of a team to become a spectator anywhere on the map unbeknownst to anyone else and so yeah, this coaching exploit as it's being called basically allows a coach to place themselves anywhere on the map and then swivel their camera from side to side and theoretically take any info that they gather from that and give it to their players. It's basically one giant broken cypher cam like in foward. Check this ship. Now, the bombshell at the heart of ESL's investigation is the fact that they've proved coaches from heroic MIB are and hardly talk use this exploit at multiple different ESL events leading up to esl one Cologne. Three teams competing at the highest level of counterstrike cheated in the investigation is said that the exploit violated quote section six point ten, five use of glitches and quote of esl's Rupel to be very clear is says that all of this happened prior to the start of esl one Cologne and that in fact, the exploit was actually patched out prior to the tournament started, and so these rulings are the result of a long investigation that just happened to be published at the same time that he also Cologne was finishing. The investigation also says at what tournament the coaches abused the exploit hardly coach Makino gun use the exploit at esl one road to Rio on six maps in three matches Perot's coach. Used the exploit at Dream Hack master spring in ten rounds on one map and Coach dead used the exploit at ESL one road to Rio in one round on one map on Thursday September fourth former NRP IP coach Pita admitted to abusing the coaching exploits during an EP L. Match Against Mel Sports back in two thousand eighteen and like I mentioned off the top these aren't just some punk teams cheating their way through F pl or some shit. This is the highest level of competitive counterstrike, its coaches and players competing amongst the best of the best and being found guilty of cheating in an online tournament with a prize pool of three hundred, fifty, thousand dollars on top of. That her minutes to win the European portion of one Cologne and they look fucking doing dominating some of the best teams in the world magic going from heroes to cheaters in the span of twenty four hours and the way we know about this exploit and the fact that coaches have been abusing it over the last few months is thanks to freelance East Sports, referees, me Kaos Lewinsky and Steve Dudin off they spent dozens of hours poring over thousands of different demos and meticulously documenting any time they thought the export was being used a big props goes out to those guys now unfortunately, coaches abusing this. Is, not limited to esl vets beyond the summit recently put out a statement that says basically that dead the coach for Mbr was found guilty of using this exploit and beyond the summit six in the most damaging part of the statement is where they said that dead explicitly knew how to fix the exploit and continue to abuse it anyway quote de demonstrated he knew how to fix the glitch while maintaining competitive integrity prior to see US summit six online by requesting technical timeout disconnecting and reconnecting which happened in the May first of match versus Mb. At, ESL. One Road to Rio and then from there, they go on to say that quote dead knowingly abused the coach spectator glitch to obtain an unfair competitive advantage and ours lower bracket round three match versus triumph at summit, six online on June. Twenty third and quote yeah. That whole give him the benefit of the doubt type thing goes out the window on this. Now, as you can imagine, the punishments handed down in the response online was both fast and fierce. Here's ESL's punishments. All three coaches rox hunting is banned from competing and coaching an ESL events for a year. Dead is banned for six months and hard legions. Makino gun is banned for wapping twenty four months or a full two years on top of that all three teams will retroactively be disqualified from the tournament in question while also forfeiting both their esl pro tour points and the prize money earned from those tournaments man you sell is not fucking around and. Beyond the summit band dead from the next to be Vance while also retroactively disqualifying maybe from beyond the summit six and they basically have to forfeit their prize money as well. Now, at the time of recording this, hardly June is the only team that's released a public statement on the matter and they basically said that they've dropped mechanica quote yesterday we received. A letter from ESL announcing the decision to ban or coach for two years. It was difficult for us to believe in Alexander's guilt but we had to conduct a personal investigation of this situation based on the results of internal discussions. We decided that the punishment from ESL was fair. We refuse to make any appeal and we are staying in the side of. The tournament organizers and and predictably lot of the responses from the scene on online. A whole bunch of you gotta be fucking kidding from pros to analysts to popular content creators. Of course, Brazilian fans everybody is thoroughly pissed off, and honestly people should be pissed off because while this exploit doesn't involve all hacks or a mocks or some other stereotypical idea of. It still seriously undermines the competitive integrity of CS go

Africa now free of wild poliovirus, but polio threat remains
"The World Health Organization declares Africa polio-free. By Jeffrey Kluger. Nobody will ever know the identity of the thousands of African children who were not killed or paralyzed by polio this year, they would have been hard to keep track of no matter what because in ordinary times they would've followed thousands last year and thousands the year before and on back in a generations long trail of suffering and death instead, no African children were claimed by polio. This year or last year or the year before it was in two thousand sixteen that the last case of wild circulating polio was reported in Nigeria the final country on the fifty four nation African continent where the disease was endemic and with the required multi year waiting period. Now, having passed with no more cases, the World Health Organization today officially declared the entirety of, Africa polio-free. A disease that as recently as the late nineteen eighties was endemic in one hundred, twenty, five countries claiming three hundred, fifty, thousand children per year has now been run to ground in just two remaining places, Pakistan and Afghanistan where there have been a collective one, hundred, two cases so far twenty twenty that's one hundred to too many. But there's no denying the scope of the whol announcement today's victory over the wild poliovirus in the. African region is a testament to what can happen when partners from a variety of sectors join forces to accomplish a major global health goal says John Hueco, general, secretary, and CEO of Rotary International. It is something the world can and should aspire to during these turbulent times. It was Rotary and International Nonprofit Service Organization that kicked off the polio endgame in Nineteen Eighty eight with the launch of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative the GPA. That program aimed to leverage the power of rotaries thirty, five, thousand clubs and one point twenty, two, million members in two hundred countries and territories worldwide to make polio only the second human disease after smallpox to be pushed over the brink of extinction.

CDC sets out new guidelines for reopening US schools
"The school calendar is not the end encounter. A new front in the back to school debate, every school district has to make these decisions. These are complex decisions. The CD's out with long-awaited guidelines making the case, schools should reopen in some cases arguing children suffer in a remote learning environment there really are have been substantial public health, negative consequences for children, not being at school and stressing, they appear to be at lower risk for serious complications. Complications from covid nineteen and are less likely to spread the virus than adults with the science on. That still isn't settled. What I can't tell you for sure. Despite the South Korea study is whether children under ten in the United. States don't spread the virus is the same as children over ten I, think that is still an open question that needs to be studied in the United States. One reason there's so much concern particularly in hot spots like Florida Miami Dade County. You're talking about three hundred fifty thousand students plus another forty thousand teachers, so you're putting tremendous amount of people back into the economy in a way that could could end up being super spreader event. Exactly. What doctors and overwhelmed hospitals? There are worried about. Is Way too dangerous here right now to have face to face schools and we're drowning. We're absolutely drowning here. This E also advising local authorities to take into account, the level of virus transmission in the community before resuming in person classes. When you look at the hot spots, I think most of us all right now. Looking where the percents positivity rate within the community is greater than five percent, many of the nation school districts pressure to make a decision before the CDC guidance came down some deciding to hold online only classes in the fall others postponing the start of the school year. Despite, positivity rate above twelve percent. Arizona's Governor Doug Ducey asking schools to open on time this fall while leaving the decision to local leaders
President Trump Brings Big Fireworks Displays Back To Mt. Rushmore
"To South Dakota and Mount Rushmore now that is where president trump will celebrate independence day this evening. He along with seventy five hundred other people will be treated to a three hundred fifty thousand dollar fireworks display. That is courtesy of south. Dakota taxpayers trump takes credit for reviving the big displays after environmental concerns, stop them in two thousand nine, South Dakota public broadcasting's Seth tupper reports on why the fireworks were banned, and how the president brought them back. Big expensive firework shows like this one erupted in color over the carped heads of Rushmore. Every July for about a decade. But the National Park Service put a stop to it after two thousand nine because of pollution and the wildfire risk to the surrounding black hills national forest. In January president, trump said those aren't good reasons to cancel a fireworks display. They say what can burn stone stone. So, nobody knew why they just set environmental reasons, so I called up our people, and within about fifteen minutes we got it approved, and you're going to have your first. Big Fireworks Display at Mount, Rushmore and I'll try get out there if I can. Right I would say that those comments are not informed comments, and that information is out there what the impacts were Cheryl. Schreier was superintendent of Mount, Rushmore National, Memorial from twenty ten until last year. When the big displays started in nineteen, ninety eight dozens of firefighters had to be stationed in the forest nearby to put out fires started by falling embers debris from the exploded fireworks. Shells delivers the forest in two thousand sixteen, a chemical link to fireworks called perchlorate was found in drinking water wells at Mount, Rushmore levels are not regulated in South Dakota or really, but they remain higher than standard set by Massachusetts and California. Schreier, said it all added up to a consensus when she was in charge, fireworks were not going to be a part of Mount Rushmore any further, but shortly after taking office in two thousand eighteen Republican governor Christie Gnome says she asked. President trump to bring the fireworks back. Footage of them aired all over the world, boosting South Dakota's tourism industry and he ever since then has kind of I. Don't know taking the bull by the horns you know been. Passionate about it a park service environmental review concluded in April found. The fireworks will not have a significant impact on the environment. Seventy five hundred people won tickets to the event in an online lottery signs, encouraging social distancing will be posted and masks will be made available, but GNOME says nothing will be required. We did have a plan originally of social distancing. We do not anticipate any social distancing activities during the celebration protesters pushing for the removal of statues say Mount Rushmore honors to slave owners, Washington and Jefferson calls to face. The memorial are circulating on the Internet. And Native American groups plan to protest, they say the mountain carving and the fireworks desecrate land they, lost broken treaties. Whether could add a final wrinkle. Authorities have set of go no go criteria that could cancel the show if fire conditions are too dangerous.

Sure so there's a bit less than seven million people that have just become unemployed and for the rest of the April by the time you listen to. This'll be towards the end of April. It looks like the unemployment rates are just going to get much much worse than this summer saying that in the United States alone there'll be more than ten percent unemployment rate which is thirty to forty percent. I heard Goldman Sachs a ten percent. I've heard some people say fifteen twenty percent I see the numbers ranging the problem with how they calculate unemployment is. It's not as simple as oh. You don't have a job like if you've been unemployed for over six months. They considered you not unemployed. They considered you. You Stop Looking. Which isn't accurate. Either right so it depends how they wanNA end counting you as unemployed or employed so actionable things in terms of what you can do during hard times right now. So what now better than ever like? I actually spoke to someone. That's that's freelancing right. Now it just depends on what you're doing maybe doing advertising. It's hard to say. Oh I'M GONNA go get clients right now but if you do want to get a job right now. They're a lot of people are still hiring and I will say that there's actually a in Silicon Valley.

I'm willing to do some stuff and Neil talk about this. All the time is working for free for a small period of time building up that report quickly and then you know getting into some type of pave engagement. Now's the easiest way because people aren't making that much right now but they could use to help the easiest way to try to find a job right now is looking at skill sets. You have go find any venture funded company that's been funded recently. Because I mean they're flush with cash crunch base has a big list of them and go email the CEO the founder and the investors. What they're doing wrong and how they can fix it and lay it out in step by step instructions at the end just being like look best selecting this if you need help and you're looking for to hire someone. I'm open for a job. This is exactly tied to your point. Neil so sorry. Sorry for interrupting but go to candor dot co slash. Hiring Dash freezes. These are all the silicon valley companies. And there's a lot of green in here. You can sort by hiring hiring freeze and layoffs but yet in go hit up those companies that Eric just mentioned on that you are all candor dot co slash hiring freezes and go hit a ball those companies. Tell them what they can do to improve. And I bet you you'll find people willing to hire you. That's what I used to back in the day even during the last recession. And if you do that you can do quite well. You may not get the prime job that you want but hey something's better than nothing right. We can't be to choose at this point. So this is actually.

Small Business Rescue Earned Banks $10 Billion In Fees
"Right now small businesses are desperate for loans. Congress allocated three hundred and forty nine billion dollars for small businesses. That money was gone in less than two weeks but not all of it went to small businesses around. Ten billion dollars went to banks to cover processing fees. Npr's Laura Sullivan has been looking into financial records. Good Morning Laura. Good morning at ten billion dollars is a lot of money. What are banks doing to to earn that money? So banks like J. P. Morgan Chase Bank of America. Pnc and dozens of others are processing the loans. They're essentially the middlemen. They take the applications from their small business clients and they funnel those requests up to the Small Business Administration which approves the loan and what's important to note here. Is that the money the banks are getting for? Their clients isn't their money. I mean this isn't bank money. This is taxpayer money. Taxpayers are funding loans for small businesses to cover things like payroll rent and utilities during the crisis. Okay something for taxpayers to think about. Let me ask you. What's the incentives for the banks to process all these small business loans so fees? We took a deep dive into the public financial records of companies and banks and we found the banks are making billions of dollars in fees. According to the programs rules banks can take anywhere from one to five percent of the entire loan and keep it as a fee depending on how much the loan is worth so any loan up to three hundred fifty thousand dollars. The banks get five percent of that money alone between two million ten million dollars. The banks get one percent of that money so for example the parent company of. Ruth's Chris Steak House. Got A ten million dollar loan from the program J. P. Morgan Chase which according to financial records process that loan thought one hundred thousand dollar fee for this one time transaction and remember these loans. Carry no risk for J. P. Morgan or the other banks. It's taxpayer. Money guaranteed by the small business administration and the loans require less work. The government is required unless vetting compared to WANNA bank lending its own money now banks do normally get fees for processing. Sba loans but not in this volume with these dollar amounts were over a two week period. And you've been looking into it in the dollar amount that you've found as I said is a ten billion dollars have gone to bank so far. Yes bring you break down. The value of the loans and use the formula government established is adds up to more than ten billion dollars in fees that went to the banks just in the past two weeks. So what are the banks saying banks saying? Well look. We're doing our job. We're supposed to get paid. So we reached out to some of the biggest banks involved in the program including PNC JP P. Morgan Bank of America. Some said they have to pay for thousands of employees that are working twelve eighteen hour days to get the loans push through and are now preparing or hoping for Congress to authorize another round. They said while betting might not be as thorough as it would be a regular bank loan. There is still significant document take like document. Collection Review Wells. Fargo says it's going to donate its money to charity but it was required to do that. As part of a government agreement falling problems bank had in two thousand eighteen. None of the other banks have said they intend to follow suit. So there's a really interesting question here. Which is that you know. Thousands of small businesses said. They were shut out. They couldn't get loans. Is there a reason to think that they didn't get loans? Because the banks knew they could make more in fees if they just worked with clients with really really large loans there are currently five class action lawsuits in California and New York alleging. Just that and the data does suggest more large loans were process before smaller loans but bank say that is simply not true. J. P. Morgan for one says they had different offices handling different loan sizes and there were simply fewer large loans so they were able to get through more them.
