When We Pray Together - burst 1
"Welcome to live behind the veil and atmosphere where men and women of God speak his word to this age and bring his kingdom to this earth. Do you have ears to hear and eyes to see what God is doing in this hour? Let us join our host and the family's conversation as the Holy Spirit is unfolding. The word behind the veil. Confess your sins to one another and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. Hi, I'm Ron, your host, and on this podcast, we will talk about what happens when we pray together. Just what does it mean to confess our sins one into another? But there's this battle that's ongoing, right? We have the fiery darts of the enemy that are attacking us and stuff. So we have something that can help us with our with our mind. Where you go, okay, you know, something gets into your mind and you go through it and it becomes an obsession. How can you keep that from happening? You're set your heart set. You're giving Thanksgiving to the lord, boy. But this one thing just comes in like a fiery dart just eats at you and eats at you. And there's this whole thing of the helmet of Salvation, right? Of the hope of Salvation. That the peace of God would surpass all comprehension shall guard your hearts and your minds in the peace of God, hey, Lori, I got a question for you in that because I hear what you're saying. And I'm just throwing this as a question out to the group. When you get in that place like you're talking about whether something, whether it's a problem or it's obsessed. Yes. Where your mind just will not let you sleep, you can't, you can't shrug it. You can't throw it off. It's just there. And bug in the living heck out of you. Because I've tried different things and I can't see I've been very successful with that. That's the point where you call for help for your brothers and sisters. Like I said, I've tried to do it as an individual. You get up at night, your brain just keeps you up in your 3 o'clock in the morning. You finally go, you know what? This is flipping crazy. I can't sleep. My mind won't shut off about whatever problem it is. So I get up, you know, I get in the word, or I go worship, pray and tongs, does it help? Yeah, it helps a little. But it doesn't. It doesn't get that fiery dart or what that thing out of your brain. So it's true. That's true. Do you reach into the relationships your brothers and sisters, those that are close to you and say, hey, look, you know, I'm not trying to lay something on you, but help me with this because this thing is eating my lunch, but for a better word, you know? I totally agree with you, rod. You kiss can't overcome it. And you're not meant to you're meant to draw on that people around you. So all call someone and talk to them about it and say, I can't get over this, then we'll just pray together and then it tends to have left. Right with that, you don't have to be specific. God knows what you're going through. And you just talk to someone and say, man, I've got this thing going on. Can you pray with me about it? Yeah. That is honestly the act of submission because you're opening your heart. Once you give a specific, then that puts a seed in somebody else's brain and then their brain starts running with that seed. And you've just imparted to them your problem. They don't need or their opinion. Now they've got an opinion about it or whatever. Correct. That's true. You just created something that you didn't want. So you just say, please. I've got this issue, pray with me about it. Right. And then let it go because that's where the freedom comes from. God knows everything. Good, bad, ugly, indifferent. Doesn't matter. He knows everything in relation to what you're going through. And the power of prayer is so much more than most people realize, in that because it's the body ministry. It's the body feeding itself. It's the body holding one another up. And like Debbie saying, you can not do it alone. You know, Alan, this fits right in because if you talk to somebody about your problems or what you're going through, it puts in a weight on them. And it's hard for them to get over that without having some sort of an opinion. If you tell somebody, well, I just have this thing going on. I don't want to talk to about it, but I just want you to pray with me. It's kind of again trusting the lord. Again, it's that same spirit of Thanksgiving and trust in going lord, you know what's going on here. I'm not going to lay a burden on my brother or sister about this, but I do need help. We know that God moves through human beings. And so as when you start drawing upon the body of Christ, if they can just pray with you without knowing the problem, it's probably more effective than knowing the problem. Right. Because it gets their minds out of it. Thigh kingdom come, thy will be done, has nothing to do with what I think about whatever it is you're going through. It doesn't matter. In everything by prayer and supplication with Thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God which passeth all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. So what he's saying here is, if we have our minds set on the lord and it tells you in the word to think of these things that are lovely and of good report and a virtue so that you don't get captured by those things that snare you. And then there's a verse in Isaiah as well that says that will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee because he trusted in thee. Many of the times when we reach out to one another, we're asking for intercession to in a few ask for prayer the old terminology while tell me what's bothering you so I know what to pray about. Not the old way of doing things. It doesn't work in this day and age. And when we're in receding for one another, we don't need to know what the problem is. I think it's coming to the point where we have to really recognize what's happening. God is looking to create us. Giving ourselves to, to being created and cutting off the negative, but lord show me who this person is. That's who I'm holding in your up to you, lord, and intercession. This is a son. This is one of your chosen ones. This person trusts you. You become a co creator. Well, everyone. On this podcast we've learned that we are not always able to overcome everything by ourselves. When we have issues of circumstances that we can not overcome, we should call on those who will pray with us to see the victory come forth in our lives.

Joshua Philipp From Epoch Times Tells Us About His Background
"We return with Joshua Phillips, who is the senior investigative reporter at the epic times. If you don't read the epic times, your communist. He's the host of crossroads and epic times. And we're here now because Josh Phillips, you've created this documentary called the real story of January 6th. This is as important as it gets. And you know, tell me a little bit about your background because what we're seeing in America, we've not seen in America. We expect this kind of nefarious government action from China. China crushes its opponents at any dissidents, any voices that dare to speak against the communist regime. You expect that from a totalitarian Marxist state. You don't expect that in the United States of America. What do you suppose happened that this kind of thing can happen in America? Well, you know, on your point. So yeah, so my beat at epic times for many years was investigating the Chinese Communist Party. Although my beat was maybe a little different than most China reporters. My focus was on what the Chinese Communist Party is doing in the United States. This goes back to the start of my career with epic times. I've been there since 2006, began investigative reporting in 2008. When I accidentally uncovered one of the largest Chinese spy operations in America, that being the united front work department. And I uncovered how through its consulates, the CCP was running spy networks, approaching what are called tongs, fraternal organizations. You could think about guilds or unions. That exists throughout chinatowns here in New York and in most parts of the world. And how these were working together with the Chinese mafia and doing liaison work approaching government officials inviting them back to China. Academics, journalists, even a lot of them. And business leaders and compromising them. And so my focus since 2008 has been on investigating and exposing communist subversion

"There are reports of some gang violence later on in San Francisco, but they were mostly seen as one offs. They definitely weren't at the same level of notoriety or destruction as some of the tongue fights. The 6 remaining tongs in San Francisco after 1906, the hop sings, sui sings, sui dongs, sensuous, Ying's, jun Ying's, and Bing Kong's eventually formed a peace committee in 1913. The last known Tong related murder in San Francisco happened in 1921. Some hatchet men left for other big cities like Chicago or New York. We won't get into it now, but just know that the migration of hatchet men resulted in Tong wars continuing for another ten to 20 years in New York and Chicago after the violence died down in San Francisco. As always, we like to follow up our main story with short recurring segments. This is a new segment called what's wrong with that. Today's term is oriental. So first of all, the word oriental originates from the term orient or orients in Latin, which is a term for east. It also is related to the word for rising which refers to the sun rising and that's to the east, orient is the antonym of oxidant or oxidants in Latin, which means west, or the western world. The Caucasian world, so what's wrong with oriental? Well, it's tricky, because when it refers to objects or things like a rug or a salad dressing, it's pretty innocuous. But when it refers to people, it's fallen out of favor to other terms, like Asian. One reason is because it's kind of derogatory and colonialist. Why call someone east or eastern in relation to what? This is a term that comes from a colonialist mindset that puts Europeans at the center, really. But we live on a globe. It's round. So east is relative. You go far east enough and you're west of where you started and vice versa..

"Because new tongs that popped up usually appeared due to a bigger tongue splitting or different interests. So smaller tongs would form but members could be part of both tongs. This did result in a few wars because of betrayals. The hip sing Tong and hop sing Tong war was just one example of that occurrence. A hop sing hatchet man killed a member of the hip sings, but the hips sing member was also an important member of the sensui Ying Tong. The sansui Ying Tong joined the war against the hop sings. Later on in that war, a sensu Ying member was killed by a hop sing member, and because the San suoyang member was also part of the QI Kong Tong, the QI Kong Tong became involved in the war to avenge the death of their member. This is crazy. Yeah. And that was very common just because hatchet men, a lot of their hatchet men. They needed soldiers. And because so many tongs needed soldiers, they were totally fine with their soldiers being members of other tongs, especially if tongs were allied with each other. And it was pretty common for the allies to stick with their allies, especially because the major rivalries stayed basically the same. Like the hip sings and the hop sings. And hatchet man, I mean, they're hired muscle. A lot of the time. There's no true allegiance to one Tong or another. Pay me however much, and I will fight for.

"Some of these attempts to break up prostitution in the Chinatown red light district were stopped by American businessmen who had money or other interests in the red light district businesses. The 6 companies largely worked through legal channels and tried to work with local governments and the American government in general, but rumors spread and many California politicians viewed the 6 companies with disdain. Some rumors were that the 6 companies had almost tyrannical levels of power which they didn't, that they held their own trials had control in lesser criminal activities like gambling and would enforce their own punishments against those who were deemed guilty. All of those things were untrue from the 1850s to the 1870s. As crime grew in the 1880s, the 6 companies started to set up rules and regulations for the society they wanted, and the people would pay in exchange for security and protection. The 6 companies grouped together to fight against the bigotry violence and laws infringing on their rights. As the tongs gained power, state legislature, specifically in 1876, placed blame for the increase in crime on the 6 companies, including the beginning fights between tongs. In reality, the 6 companies were trying to stop Tong activity. They often posted information on Tong members and offered rewards for more information on Tong members. The one big power of the 6 companies actually had was the exit Visa tax. Basically, people would pay attacks and receipt was provided to prove the person had paid all their debts so they could go back to China. These receipts were taken as proof by the chief of police Patrick Crowley, who, instead of focusing on the tongs, helped push forward something called the Felton act, which stopped the 6 companies from being able to hold the power of the exit Visa. So, the 6 companies were really the only group that could combat the growing tongs, and with the police and the government placing the blame on the 6 companies. It was only a matter of time before the 6 companies collapsed. The Geary act was passed on May 5th, 1892. It was an extension of the Chinese exclusion act of 1882 that enforced harsher laws on Chinese residents. The main amendments cracked down on illegal entry and residents by requiring documentation at all times. It also renewed the exclusion of Chinese laborers for another ten years. Unsurprisingly, the Geary act was opposed by the 6 companies, and they attempted to fight it and hire lawyers to fight for the rights of Chinese people in America..

"Their hatchets were also pretty unique because it was common for hatchet men to cut down the handles until they were just long enough to have a good grip. Fun fact, tongs generally had names like the society of pure upright spirits or the peace and benevolent society. By the way, today we're just going to cover the Tong wars in San Francisco. We'll talk about the New York conflicts in another episode. So before the Tong wars of the 1880s, San Francisco's Chinatown was pretty peaceful. I mean, for Chinatown in the 18 hundreds. By the early 1850s, California had a population of about 25,000 Chinese, and it wasn't until 1861 that opium arrived in San Francisco, anti Asian sentiment started to gain movement around the 1860s and with the depression of 1873, Asians were often the scapegoat. To sort of counteract the violence against Asians, merchant companies started to organize in the hopes they could care for and help more disenfranchised immigrants. The first organization appeared in 1850 in San Francisco called the Kong Chao company, in 1851, the Sam yup company was formed and it covered the three districts the Kong Chao company didn't. Later that year, the yup company was formed after splitting off from Kong Chao. By 1854, there were four major companies, also known as the four great houses. In the 1860s, 6 major companies covered or represented all Chinese in California. Known aptly as the 6 companies, the group consisted of the Sam yup company the sea up company, the Nguyen company, the young woe company, the hop wo company and the hip cat company. At first the company's main goal was to help Chinese travel to and from China to care for the sick and the starving and to return corpses to China for burial. But as anti Asian violence rose, the 6 companies started to try to protect the Chinese and San Francisco..

"From NPR and W bur I'm Scott Tong. And I'm Tanya Mosley. This is here and now Secretary of State. Antony Blinken testifies before the Senate today after a test if I've our hearing before House committee yesterday, Republicans and Democrats grilled him on the U. S. Was the U. S withdrawal from Afghanistan and Republicans were unrelenting. Many called for him to resign, while Democrats pointed to a troubled 20 year engagement in Afghanistan, which President George W. Bush started. Let's bring in representative Gerry Connolly of Virginia Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee for more and Congressman Connolly. Thank you for joining us. My pleasure. Thank you, Donna. Representative. Let's cut through the partisan fighting that we saw yesterday and talk about the substance of what Secretary Blinken said. He defended the administration's handling of the crisis in Afghanistan. Talked about airlifting thousands out of the country. And he also turned some heads in the foreign affairs world by saying he'd re evaluate the U. S relationship with Pakistan, especially the role Pakistan has played in Afghanistan over the last 20 years. This could have big ramifications. Your assessment. The relationship with Pakistan has been problematic for a long time their nuclear development program Certainly caused the United States great concern. But also the relationship Pakistan has had not only with the Taliban but with the Haqqani network, which now is included In the new Taliban cabinet. And that is very troubling that Pakistan would have a relationship with known terrorist networks. That were targeting Americans during the Afghan war. Do you feel you got to hear a satisfying explanation for what? The administration Was thinking about is the crisis in Afghanistan unfold it. Frankly, I think there's too much emphasis on The events that started to unfold in the months preceding August. 14th. This didn't just happen on President Biden's watch. The Trump Administration did three things. One was to agree to face to face negotiations with the Taliban. The second was to actually agree not to include the Afghan government in those negotiations and then setting a a one deadline for the full withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan. Those three things Undermined the Afghan government and undermine the ability of the Afghan military to muster any kind of a rale and resisting the Taliban. But even if the bite in administrations hands were tied, so to speak, because of past administrations, what do you say to critics who believe we could have handled the exit? Better? I mean, even some Democrats have said the administration. Shouldn't have left their bases so quickly. I think there's lots of room for Monday morning quarterbacking on what could have should have gone better. I think the administration was saddled with decisions already made by the previous administration. I think it also frankly made the mistake of buying in the conventional wisdom, which was that the Afghan military Would be able to continue to resist, and I think that kind of conventional wisdom coming both from our military and our intelligence communities. Obviously contributed to the chaos. Yesterday. You also criticized your fellow congressman Joe Wilson, Republican of South Carolina, who spent four of his five minutes laying into the secretary. He didn't ask any questions. Here's how he concluded your bizarre abandoning Bagram airfield led directly to 13 more right Marines murdered in Kabul. You should resign Representative Conley, you push back at representative Wilson. You cited his famous breach of decorum when he shouted, you lie at President Obama. During the joint address to Congress. Have you heard from representative Wilson since that exchange? Look I like Yo Wilson, but I felt what he said yesterday was outrageous. To lay the deaths. Uh, brave American marines who are trying to help in the evacuation who died at the hands of a suicide. Bomber, which was a risk We knew under those circumstances, I thought was really a liable that had to be responded to At the root of this hearing. Is this call by Republicans to have Secretary Blinken to resign? The GOP is going to keep pressing the Biden administration on Afghanistan. They're trying to campaign on it. Are you worried about that? What are you and other Democrats trying to do to counter this message? Well, as I said yesterday, I believe the Republicans are guilty of very selective. Fact checking mixed with salad dressing of enormous amnesia. Afghan is a 20 year war. The longest war in American history. Lots of mistakes were made. There's a lot to be learned from These last 20 years and I hope will spend more time trying to understand those lessons rather than engaging in petty partisan blame, laying That conveniently overlooks. The very consequential decisions made by predecessor administrations, especially the Trump Administration. That's representative Jerry Conley, Democrat of Virginia. Thank you so much for talking with us. My pleasure, Tanya. Thank you for doing this. President Biden is taking political heat for his covid vaccine plan. It requires big companies to have workers vaccinated or tested regularly. Congressman Jim Banks Republican of Indiana tweeted that vaccine mandates are American. Other descriptors from critics include authoritarian tyranny, Government power grab, Let's take a long view. Now with Julian Zelizer, he's professor of history and public affairs at Princeton again, Julian Thanks for having me. Nice to be with you. I gather presidential vaccine mandates go back a long, long way to when George Washington. Well, George Washington has been discussed in terms of the period with the Continental Army Forces where he promotes the inoculation of the troops against smallpox. He thinks smallpox is the most dangerous enemy. The troops face in the American revolution. He receives a lot of fallout for doing it. But in the end, uh most people today think that was a good decision so we cannot go all the way back to Washington to see This kind of policy. That was the fallout.

"I'm Scott Tong, and it's here and now Congress is back in session after its traditional August break, and lawmakers are gearing up to grill Antony Blinken, the secretary of state, speaks on Afghanistan and other issues before the House Foreign Affairs Committee today. Blinken is the first administration official to testify after the Taliban takeover and let's bring in Michele Kelemen, NPR diplomatic correspondent. Hi, Michel. Hi. There's got So can we expect the Capitol Hill rarity today for Democrats and Republicans to be roughly in the same page today as far as Afghanistan? Well, it's certainly there's a lot of bipartisan concern about the way this war ended. But Blinken is likely to face kind of a tougher tone from Republicans. The ranking Republican on that committee Michael McCaul. And his colleagues wrote a letter to blink in recently accusing the state Department of a dereliction of duty and criticizing the woefully inadequate contingency planning on Afghanistan. Those from McCall's words, um You know he's been furious with the way the State Department has handled the evacuation. Since the U. S military wrapped up its airlift last month, McCall has been one of those advocating for hundreds of stranded Afghans and some Americans at the airport in Mazar e Sharif in northern Afghanistan. Those charter flights still haven't been able to take off. And Democrats, by the way, have raised alarms about that, too. So tough words on the way for Antony Blinken, and he will take the heat by virtue of being the first official in the Biden administration to testify in this But how much authority did the State Department actually have over this pullout compared to say, the Pentagon or the intelligence community? Well, I mean, obviously, there's a lot of blame to go around. And folks here at the State Department thinks some of the criticism has been unfair. The president set the course ending the US war based on a deal that the Trump administration negotiated with the Taliban. Officials in this administration, including I would say here at the State Department thought they had time. They thought Ashraf Ghani is government would last longer. They thought they could keep an embassy open even after U. S troops left. And in the end, they really had to scramble and you know they did get 124,000 people out of Afghanistan during a very dangerous airlift. They've even gotten some Americans in green card holders out since the airlift ended, But there are many more who still want to leave and are still very fearful. Now this administration Of course, inherited a US Taliban deal from the its predecessor. And, of course the whole world started under President Bush two decades ago. Democratic representative Chrissy Hoolahan spoke on morning edition today and what she wants to hear from Blinken about where responsibility lies for this entire tobacco. Let's take a listen But I think that's one of the things that we need to be careful of is. I think the American people frankly just want to understand what's happening. Why decisions were made. You know what? Where we can trace those decisions to and how we can, frankly continuing out of this 20 year war in a better place. So where we can trace those decisions to Michelle. What do you expect to hear on that question? Well, you know, Blinken has been a key aide to Biden for years when he was in the Senate and the White House and now as secretary of state, so clearly, he would have good insight into how The decisions are made. But whether or not he answers such questions as a very different story, Scott you know, Cabinet secretaries almost always say they keep their advice, Private. Um, And I suspect that's what we're going to hear again from him today. Yeah, well, I guess maybe that's how you keep your job as a Cabinet secretary. Finally. Now the State Department does issue visas and you report been reporting on the special immigration visas for Afghans who have helped Americans. What's the latest there? Well, Blinken is likely to repeat the same argument that he's made that they inherited a huge backlog of requests for these special immigrant visas because the Trump administration had stopped interviews. They did restart them. This year. They tried to streamline the process. But you know the question is, what do you do now? How do you make sure you can continue to help people who, um, could still possibly apply who were want to leave and who are in danger, but also do it in a way that's safe for the U. S. And there are a lot of really tough questions to be asked there. NPR's Michele Kelemen. Thanks as always, Thank you. By now, many of us know someone who has caught covid 19 after being fully vaccinated. But despite what seems like high numbers of those so called breakthrough infections, the numbers are actually pretty low. Several recent studies show that only one in about 5000 vaccinated people are testing positive. That's less than 1%. So why does it feel so scary? Let's bring in Dr Ashish Jha, He's dean of the Brown University School of Public Health. Dr Zhao Welcome back and let's start with those numbers. How likely is a fully vaccinated person to end up testing positive? Yes. So the best estimates right now are as you said about one in 5002. My best guess is probably more like one in 10,000. Now in a large country like ours, with 175 million people vaccinated that's still you know, a good number of people having breakthrough infections. But from a individual risk point of view. It really is very, very tiny. For those vaccinated people who do get infected, though what is their ability to spread this virus and is it different for people who are Symptomatic versus those who are asymptomatic. Yes, that's a great question. So here's what we know. Vaccinated people can spread, but they're far less likely to spread. They have less virus. They're contagious for a much, much shorter period of time. And the second part is almost all the evidence out there says the vaccine in people spread when they have symptoms, so a breakthrough infection..
Prophet Mike Thompson: The Cure for the Lawlessness Is the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit
"I want my audience to be as encouraged as have been that in the midst of this darkness. God says hold on. I'm not done with america because many people that seem to think it's over when the end times it's over you know rates to run into the caves but that's not what god has been saying to. You know others evil in the world there always has been always will be until the second coming of the lord. Jesus christ i mean we understand those things but there is victory also in the bible it talks about in the last days their scriptures in the new testament where the apostle paul particularly was talking about in the last days and he explains how that there would be all this kind of evil and lawlessness. Lawlessness is a good word. Apostle paul love to talk about lawlessness. He talked about this present evil age and connected that with lawlessness. How that the entire mass of human thinking devoid of the reality and the truth of god and the revelation of the holy spirit in our life produces a mindset in humanity to where they they don't believe in god and not follow after the morals of god and thereby there's a lawlessness that occurs spiritual lawlessness. We've seen recently. A lot of physical lawlessness legal lawlessness. If you will and But the holy spirit also inspired in the book of acts where on the day of pentecost when the holy spirit came and he moved in any birth the church and then they questioned the people around the heard him speaking tongues. They saw the tong tongues of fire on the people's heads it all that was going. They were praising god they were magnifying. God in people that were watching questioned that and so the first great sherman there where peter said that this is that that joel prophesy and he said in the last day jobs i will pour out of my spirit. So if the bible at the new testament says in the last days there will be lawlessness. It also says in the last days. I will pour out of my spirit. I'm saying that the antidote that you're for the lawlessness is the outpouring of the holy spirit

"Let's talk about the food. Let's start with camping. When the weather cools down this is floridians. Time to get out there. So what would you take on a camping trip today. Not cold cuts and pb and j. I'm guessing no no no like so for me. I beat the go-to as those foil. Packet mills that you can kind of prep beforehand and just keep them in your cooler on ice so you can take stuff like shrimp and potatoes with some veggies and season it and have it and you're full packet in. Just throw that puppy on the grill. And your any eat you can use Baked potatoes and stuff from with whatever it is. You like you can eat regular potatoes. Sweet potatoes you can even do like breakfast type of things like with frozen hash browns and your sausage and cheese and all that stuff and prep it and just have it. Ready to go in a foil packet. That's probably the easiest way if you don't wanna like carry a skillet or something like that even just heat up the foil packet and boom like whatever you could imagine that you could do like in a dish like in a in a casserole dish or something you can do it in the packet. I never really thought about that. My imagination is kind of running wild. Now what if you do want to carry a skillet. What are some tools or utensils that you maybe would bring along you. Did i mean you you wanna use something like a cast iron skillet. You don't wanna go putting your you know the that ceramic type stuff on like an open flame so you wanna use something. That's girl friendly on is the biggest thing you want to make. Sure you had your utensils like your spatula. Your tongs on bring your seasoning things like that. I mean it's is nothing to deep is just you know you have to remember if you're camping where you're just driving and you can keep up in the car. Then that's cool. That's great if it's a situation where you're backpacking and you've got a bit of a hike to get to your site. Then that's a whole other beast and so you have to completely rethink kyler gonna do this because whatever you have you have to carry it
"tong " Discussed on 90.3 KAZU
"Tong for Marketplace. I know Sometimes you wake up, you have to know right then And there What's going on in business and the economy? Check out the marketplace. Morning report. David Brancaccio in the game, getting out of bed figuring out what's going on and telling you about it, Check it out. We are giver take six months into the Biden administration as good a moment as any really to check in on where some of the promises that candidate Biden made. Stand now that he's got the job. What about, say healthcare? As with many other things, it is not just Republicans that Mr Biden has to placate more than 150 House Democrats right with a letter calling on the president. To do more on one part of the health care system in particular expanding access to Medicare. As marketplace accumulate Adams reports in President Biden's budget proposal he calls for lowering the eligibility age for Medicare from 65 to 60. And there's research explaining why many advocates see that as a good idea. Joe Strayger is a professor at Stanford School of Medicine and a surgeon and as a surgeon, I noticed in my practice that there was a there seemed to be a sudden rise in the number of lung cancers. I was treating in patients who had just turned 65. He asked around, and his colleagues saw the same thing. Normal rates at age 64 66, but twice as many lung cancer treatments at 65. There's no biological explanation for why there would be that that kind of jump. But as Schrager found in a research paper he co authored with colleagues There is an economic explanation. People were waiting for treatment until they were eligible for Medicare. Schrager says Lowering the eligibility age could save lives. Because that period of time in your early sixties I think it's a window. Where are sort of work. Associate assurance system tends to fail a lot of people, and it's the same window when illnesses that are life threatening to become more and more common. And conditions that aren't life threatening as well. Judy Stein runs the center for Medicare advocacy. Her group works with clients to ensure they receive Medicare benefits. And they come to Medicare. Uh, sicker, more vulnerable than they might had. The there've been adequate coverage before they came onto Medicare. Lowering the eligibility age may sound simple, but like anything else involving health care in this country, it isn't for example, providers generally get paid less under Medicare than they would from an employer plan or private insurance plan. Tricia Neuman is a senior vice president at the Kaiser Family Foundation. And so I think if this proposal were to move forward in game steam It would not be a surprise to see serious opposition from the hospital industry and other health care providers. Having more people on Medicare would also shift the cost burden of ensuring them from employers to the government. Mirian logos in teaches health policy at Columbia University. Employers, depending on the generosity of the benefits package may see their employees choosing to ensure themselves through the public system that would be a real win for small businesses. Of course, all this depends on the details of any eventual plan, which would still need congressional approval. I think that there's there's a degree of pessimism around whether this will go forward, and that's up to the political process. And the Biden administration is already in a lot of tough political negotiations at the moment in Washington. I'm Kimberly Adams for Marketplace. Coming up. A real good week can clean out.
Pipeline Companies Try to Avoid Regulation, Despite Major Hack
"More than eleven thousand gas stations across the southeast. Remain out of gas panic. Buying has drained over half the stations in north carolina and nearly seventy percent of the pumps in washington. Dc this comes. Five days after the colonial pipeline resumed operations after a ransomware hack forced shutdown tomorrow congress will launch a pipeline security bill to prevent future outages. But critics say. It's still missing. Some major safeguards marketplace's scott. Tong kicks us off when something goes wrong with the pipeline like the colonial pipeline hack companies. Do not have to tell the government electricity companies to and if there's a plane incident airlines have to open up the government. Investigators says rob kentucky is a former top cybersecurity as to president obama. They will be doing everything they could to understand what happened. And then they would rapidly sharing that information with other airlines so those airlines could prevent the same thing from happening to that. That's not at all what's happening with this pipeline incident instead. It's a volunteer system of protecting data and sharing information. There are no government mandates or fines just recommendations in the bill in congress would keep it that way thing is a recent survey of pipeline companies. Found that just eight percent actively share information with the rest of the industry and the government that's a woefully low number indie lee at the law firm jones walker. Did this survey. There's not enough charity. And there are too few sticks to ensure that our pipeline industry stakeholders are actively engaging in the budget fan to make sure that they are say. This isn't a new fight nine years ago. Oil and gas lobbyists fought off mandatory rules and now energy trade groups are again. Seeing the industry should oversee itself mark weatherford is dubious strategy head at the national cyber security center which advises government officials. I am not a fan of regulation. And i hate to say this. But you know it's been proven over and over again. That companies are simply not going to self regulate when the public safety is at stake.

How Fashion Can Leverage the Audio Appeal of Clubhouse
"Earlier this year. Silicon valley became obsessed with a new app called clubhouse and audio bay social network where people can spontaneously jump into different chat rooms to together launched amid the pandemic since day one. The app has attracted the kind of funding controversy and hype that's ruffled feathers and made headlines. The social audio space is booming. Investors are piling in and recently twitter revealed that it's launching. Its own take on social audio space. That's currently being dominated by clubhouse one of is super users is none other than virgil abloh. Louis vuitton men's artistic director and creative director of off. White virgil joins us at voices twenty today from chicago alongside clubhouse founder paul davidson who is in san francisco. Welcome to you both. Thank you so much. Glad to be here liquors lurk whereas going and run. Get to see you again. Virgil i'm gonna. I'm gonna start with paul. Because i think everyone in the silicon valley world has heard of clubhouse but you know there are people watching who may not yet have understood what this is. So in the first instance. I'm gonna ask you the question you know. Why do we need another social media. What is it that clubhouse offers to the world. That isn't already out there. Yeah happy but that one slight correction the clubhouse house with my friend row on Clubhouse it's a new type of social network. That's based on voice where people around the world come together to talk. Listen and learn from each other about topics ranging from fashion to retail music and sports and social justice. It's sort of like hallways of this conference anywhere where it's all on your phone. There's no video but you can. You can reconnect with people you can learn or you can just be applying the wall and i think that connection is an inherently human thing. We're wired to connect invoice is a very different medium. We've seen it grow recently because of things like airpods and smart speakers an in-car integrations of this technology. But but it's it's in some ways the oldest medium in the world right. We were talking long before we were writing or taking photos or shooting videos but in the world of social media. It's a new thing and we find that allows people to connect in a different way you have all of the fidelity and authenticity and bids an asks an emotion. But you don't have any of things zaidi of video worrying about what you look like. Or how messy your houses and so it creates a different type of experience that is more about connecting with people in and having conversations than about getting likes or follows or projecting a certain view of yourself to the world. So we think it's a pretty different experience in what's out there right now. Burs let me let me turn to you. Because as i mentioned in the intro you've become a clubhouse super user and they might conversations of the. I know you're a busy guy. We were talking michael wolff earlier today. Who says like the average person is spending thirteen hours a day on their technology devices. You know why are you carving out time and you're very busy schedule to use clubhouse what do you get out of clubhouse. That's different from what you can get elsewhere. It's one of those things where i rationalize it like this. I'm in the design community. Which basically means that. I'm a part of the uber. Small percentage of people that get to dictate web pants. You wear next year. Look like you know like. I have an opinion. I'm in a part of a collective that decides. What the in like a trend for your car or your your interior of your home. They look like you know that's to me. Take that as a huge responsibility. This is like shelving away all the things like the fun side of the job or something like that. So i think it's a part of my responsibility of my craft to be knowledgeable to know what's going on in the world like if i locked myself in my studio and i sit in a place where i think from my sort of like shielded view of the world. This is what i think. The impact the lives of others. I think that's the wrong path. So when clubhouse comes around which i believe is a is a forward thinking concept from amazing people with great hearts and good vision. Like it's a no brainer. You know. And i project that out and so my friend told me adjust carballo from heist. Nobody was early user of clubhouse and he was like. Hey this is something i know you'd be into. You should try it out. And that's how. I became a user. An i've been a fan of the operation ever since two other quick. Things said that. I might add one. That because it's audio you can multitask and so it takes advantage of a lot of found time. it's not something where you're staring at a screen and just scrolling for hours and doing nothing else. People are using it while. They're walking while they're driving while they're in bed at night while they're folding laundry while they're doing all sorts of other things and the second thing i'd say is a big goal for us is to ensure that when people spend time on clubhouse it is time well-spent where were they can spend spend time on it enclosed the app at the end of the session feeling better than they did when they opened it because they deepen friendships. They've met new people they've learnt. It's a participatory different experience than than sort of scrolling screen purely consuming got it so virgil let me take it back to you for a minute. Your as you said your top designer in the industry now you can dictate what pants or as we'd call trousers in. Hey what you'd wear. Trousers wear next season. But what do you think. Fashion brand louis. Re tong could use or learn from clubhouse. How could fashion brands make use of this tool. They've found different ways to use instagram other other social media apps. But you know what could a fashion brand us clubhouse for you know. This is just something that i was just like reflecting on an essence. Obviously there's this in the fashion industry. There's hyper sort of like attention. Paid towards digital space. You know e commerce web impressions content photos videos data when at the end of the day. You know it's an extreme metric and tool to engage. And i think with the with the advent of clubhouse sort of refocusing on audio. It's it's an interesting case. Study and seeing like making sure that brands have something to say. You know you when you can't escape to creating an image that looks like fashion so then people consume it as fashion or a video. That looks glossy looks like moving. Image of fashion ambience. Like i for one. Think it's a like a new landscape to hear what brand about you know without the use of image or without that the the adjacency to say a product within that image. Like what do you have to say. And that becomes compelling as a fashion industry when we can use our voice to create engagement. Yeah that's that's really interesting because of course it's like second nature for the fashion industry to communicate through imagery. But how does how does a fashion company communicate through sound. I don't know paul if you have anything to add their think it's such an interesting contrast when you're talking about the fashion industry right. I mean extensively. Fashion is visual. It is curated. this is literally the opposite. You can't fake. You can't have a social media manager post the clubhouse right you're talking and the community aspect is a really big part of it. Because it's so participatory in your calling people from the audience here engaging with the people that care about your brand you have people in the industry sourcing creatives for shoots and and and talking about trends in what's happening in the news it's just a. It's a very different experience. So i love the fact that virgil has it enjoyed using the product because on its surface that contrast is just so fascinating to me like the division curated versus the the raw and intimate. Yeah all all the conversations that i have hosted or been part of on clubhouse related to fashion imron in a weird way. Have been more in depth than than interviews or sort of regular format sort of media. You know because the audience is getting to hear what they can't see on instagram too. Many characters to type. Obviously none of us are person like me. I'm not media trained to be able to like sound by. Have my ideas go through instagram. So that people exactly get the nuance and a medium like like clubhouse is where as a designer i can talk about the inspiration that i only usually talk about press
Trump administration to auction oil drilling rights in all federal lands of ANWR coastal plain
"After decades of debate the trump administration next week is planning to auction off drilling rights in alaska. More specifically alaska's national wildlife refuge those against drilling say they want to protect the land which is home to some two hundred and fifty animal species including caribous and wolverines. But here's what you may find surprising. And this long-awaited bidding process turns out. There's not a lot of interest. Here's marketplace's scott tong. A lot of things were in fashion in the mid eighties. Big hair fanny packs and oil giants wanting to drill in alaska. National wildlife refuge an. I'll have mostly gone out of style. Tim brasher co publishes the alaska economic report. One thing that is really interesting. A lot of us in alaska who follow these things is how embitterment the major oil companies have been an war for years. That could be because they sense. The toxic politics decades of environmental opposition media risk of lawsuits against oil companies. Considering in war plus corporate reputational risk readdress and drilling in remote alaska is not cheap. Warns energy and lawyer. David hayes a former top official at the interior department. The price of oil is not high. The expense of drilling at alaska is high. Meanwhile there are many places in the world that are much cheaper to drill for oil than the alaskan arctic. So most if not all oil giants are expected to sit out the bidding which would mean lowest prices in measly royalties for the government. Now at exactly what. Congress predicted three years ago. When an authorized leasing assumed a billion dollars in royalties the bids that are put in are going to be nowhere near what congress said would occur. Low bids mean drilling rights could go for bargain. Prices though and radner at the alaska economic report predicts some interest perhaps among state and local players. The geology does look very good and even given all the bad pr and the politics. I just can't imagine that somebody maybe just individuals aren't going to submit bids perhaps anticipating lukewarm interest alaska state development commission. Just got the okay to itself to make a grab for potentially valuable land and eventually flip it or partner with oil. Companies deadline for bids came yesterday and wednesday. They'll be unsealed

AGs' Lawsuit Accuses Facebook Of Gobbling Up Competitive Threats
"Facebook crushes the competition. That's one of those cliches. We used to talk about. Big successful. Companies is facebook crushing the competition. Legally or illegally. That's something the courts will decide. The federal trade commission and attorneys general from across the country are suing facebook. They say the company eliminated competition by either buying other companies or making it impossible for them to succeed connecticut. Attorney general william. Tong is one of the forty eight eight involved in the suit. Thank you sir for being here. Good morning oil. Facebook has been a dominant company. Four years now. Why filing this lawsuit right now. you don't facebook has expensive and power and what is done without our and its market dominance is. It's it's engaged in a program of what we call by in berry where they either by their competitors or if they don't play ball and sell they crushed their competitors and what they've done is they've crushed any threat to their business and their market domination. They've eliminated choice for consumers and they beat third party app developers and software developers into submission. And your argument is that's illegal. That's not just being smart competitive business. No it's not just being smart when you're a business like facebook and you essentially dominate an entire field that means so much to people today particularly in a global pandemic in public health when we rely so much on technology to stay in touch with our friends. Our family to do business to sell products to advertise Social media's become central really in our lives and when you're the dominant market player You have an obligation not to abuse that power and what a facebook has done. It's it has abused. Its market power to keep competitors out of the marketplace and the leverage that market power to prejudice. Anybody who doesn't play by facebook's rules okay but how have users been hurt by what you're alleging. Facebook has done the ordinary people of connecticut. How are they getting hurt here. So they really don't have any choice. They because facebook not only is the dominant player in its own right through facebook but because they bought instagram Which targets a younger generation including my kids and whatsapp. Widely globally used social messaging And also a direct peer to peer messaging app. Because they've done that. You really have very limited options and so you don't have a choice on where you go to For social media number one or two by products for example on on facebook facebook marketplace. And if you're a small business in connecticut Or even a bigger business and you want advertisers sell products. You really have to use facebook or one of its companion products so you don't have any choice because of their facebook argues that there is competition and i will tell you the young people in my life that the teens the tweens. They don't care about facebook at all. They're all on tiktok. Is it possible that in five ten years facebook will be kind of irrelevant or at least not the behemoth is now and that this is just sort of panicking over something that companies become dominant for a few years and they tend to fade know. Our view is Unless we do something. That won't be the case because facebook has frankly so much money and so much market power and that's why they're buyer berry strategy so successful because they can go and pay outside prices for instagram and whatsapp and essentially stifled competition. That way so no. We think that Unless the court takes action and unless the forty eight states plus the ftc are successful. Facebook will continue to dominate. The space facebook's general counsel makes an interesting argument noting that facebook bought instagram in two thousand and twelve and bought whatsapp a few years later and federal regulators said that was fine and now basically. They're going back on what they said. What do you think about that argument. Well we certainly weren't part of that determination and we look forward over the next two years to more robust antitrust enforcement enforcement of our nations and our states antitrust laws and the states the forty eight of us have done our own investigation and now in concert with the federal trade commission have determined that facebook is acting illegally. Okay connecticut attorney general william tom. Thanks so much for your time today. We appreciate it. Thank you well.

And then there's another one to Kinda Rome inside the network to see what's there and another tool to lock up the data and then you can notify the people at the company the Organization to say well you know it. You don't have access to your data anymore at now you have to pay. Do we have any sense of of weather like these organizations are more or less secure? Are they in any way equipped to sort of hand deal with this at the same time that they're dealing with a massive public health crisis well people who have watched this and spoken to one person who actually negotiates on behalf of healthcare organizations and hospitals When they get hacked in this way and in what they described as many hospitals in general they don't have the latest version of software.
