Kinda like beeps and makes a sound. they're not that popular. If you look at just go people toy and you can see what they look like again. This is something. I named myself like years ago. Why as. I did not expect to be answering this question. Twenty years later right. Because is an artist. Moment of artistic reverie or what in my more solid like when you cover. It's is it beeps and so it like when you change the light it beeps. And so there's a sort of interplay between light and sound and the i work that i did looks nothing like the work you see. Now and it was really very like abstract audiovisual tightly sinked audio and video. So that's why i did it. So that that interplay between light and south. I say so you happen to like this toy was it who gave it to so our family actually gave it to my grandma and then and this was an toya head like growing up right. We gave it to her. When i was like ten or so and then somehow i just took it back right like five years later or ten years later and that was that it wasn't light bright or something like that. That would have been a different name for you. So mike winkle. But i'm gonna call you thank you very much. I appreciate it so way before this auction. You're creating digital art and showcasing places like instagram and twitter. That's where you started sharing. This is a project you started. I think it was may two thousand seven. Were you created and post new digital art. Work every day Talk about this effort and why you wanted to do this. Yes so when. I started this out The first one was made. I two thousand seven. I wanted to get better at drawing. And i'd sauna an illustrator out of the uk named tom. Judd who did like a sketch -oday in his sketchbook And he did it for about a year in like. I think i thought that was a cool way. To sort of like you know incrementally improved. And so i started doing a drawing every day And like posting it online again this just on my website and literally. Nobody was seeing it besides my mom and light three friends And so. I did that for like a year and If you look at the christie's actually you can see all of those drawings. In the upper left hand corner there are all sort of like they're in the lower right hand corner is the last of the like five thousand day And so after a year. I learned a lot. It had pushed me to sort of like try a of new techniques and so after that i was like well what if i use that same thing to teach myself a three d program which i didn't know and when i say three d program it's similar to what they make like pixar movies. Yes spain the art telling these software so the software basically has it's it's like a three d world where you can place any sort of objects or build any sort of objects and then you have lights virtual lights that you place and and play some around the people and then you have a virtual camera and you basically shoot a picture of the the people. The way i work now is really almost like i have a huge giant collection of three d models. There's marketplaces where you can buy. There's thousands upon thousands you type in bike. Here's know eight hundred bikes which by deal on and so you can just buy these models and then you can use them and stuff and so i can with one. Click pull those into the scene and then i can sort of pose them. Put them wherever i want. Scale the mob scale them down. It's almost like playing with toys. I've got the biggest bass toy collection. I could break them apart and put you know a new head on a new body on new arms on whatever and then sort of set up these scenes and take a picture of it. And you don't want to compare it to clip art but it is doing a collage online corrective some but in a three d format. Yeah it's like that because again. I'm taking these assets that you know. I had not built sort of putting them together in sort of a bunch of different
EU regulator reviews AstraZeneca shot and blood clot links
"Up the astra zeneca ccp virus vaccines. They're investigating the doses as a precaution. After one person died. Another was sickened following inoculation. Basically austria suspended a batch of astrazeneca vaccines after some reports of some unusual blood clotting events and then a few days later we saw denmark. Basically say we're gonna stop vaccinating with astrazeneca completely Toya melanoma some other. Nordic countries made similar announcements and over the following week saw more and more european union countries said. Oh yeah actually. Let's just hit pause. The authorities in the republic of ireland have recommended temporarily suspending. The use of the astra zeneca vaccine. One investigations are carried out into four new reports of blood closing in patients who received the job in norway. Well then on. Monday saw kind of the big powerful you. Countries france germany italy spain also that they were gonna pause vaccination update on some breaking news and france germany and we have now joined the eu countries to suspend the rollout of the oxford astrazeneca covid vaccine and meanwhile it's important to say that regulators weather we're talking about the european medicines agency or the world health organization. They've said look so far. We haven't seen any evidence that these blood clotting events are caused by the vaccine. Just because you get a vaccine doesn't mean that you're protected from every other normal thing that can go wrong. The latest data from the european medicines agency shows that out of five million astra zeneca vaccinations given across the continent. That have been thirty. Reports of people suffering a blood clot soon afterwards but in a population of that size you would expect five thousand people a year to develop blood clots even without vaccination obviously cardiovascular. Problems are are pretty common and the argument from astra zeneca is that. Hey look actually. These aren't happening anymore than than we would predict to happen. And kind of normal circumstances in the general population. And you're also not seeing more issues with these vaccines than with other virus vaccine. So why are you picking on us So like let's say Instead of vaccines we were. We were talking about sports drinks here. it's sort of like a situation where some people who buy gatorade happen to get in car accidents and then everybody decides. You shouldn't buy gatorade because you're gonna get it in a car accident but at the same time like people who get other sports drinks are also still getting in car accidents. So potentially and and probably. That's what happened. But the and other regulators around the world including the world health organization are really looking at this closely and trying to figure out what's going on and the reality is that there have been instances where vaccines do cause problems in a very rare number of cases. But the other thing. Is you know this could also be caused by the coronavirus itself and the argument that many are making including at the who and at the european medicines agency is corona. Virus is a serious deadly disease. So if you're thinking about risk versus benefit which is the way a lot of drug regulators. Think it's still worth the risk that maybe a tiny number of people will have these blood clots in exchange for the benefit of of so many more people being protected from an even more dangerous. It's fascinating so you have. What could be a small risk. Might not even be a risk associated with vaccine but you still have this huge domino effect of of countries. Pausing the shots. I mean at this point. It sounds like almost most of europe isn't giving astrazeneca at this point. Yeah it's at least seventeen at this point. And that's out of twenty seven countries and perhaps even more importantly that includes some of the biggest most powerful countries ones that have their own regulatory system so a lot of the smaller. Eu countries really rely on the european medicines agency where as countries like france and germany. Kind of have the power to make their own decisions. But we've at the same time we also saw spanish official. The spanish health minister say that spain actually has not even seen very many of these cases at all but sort of because they saw these other countries doing it. They felt pressure to as a precaution. You hear the word precaution a lot. They felt pressure as precaution to hit. Pause wow it just seems

Long-term Unemployment Remains High Despite American Jobs Returning
"Reopen and vaccinations speed up. But there are millions of people who lost their jobs at the beginning of the pandemic and who are still unemployed. NPR's Sam Greenglass reports asked Bud Johnson what he liked about his job driving a transit bus at the University of Delaware, and he uses a single word. Everything. The sights are great. The people I work for the great and it's just a pleasant atmosphere. But he hasn't had that in almost a year. Now. You got laid off from classes, but virtual, I eat two meals a day instead of three. I do go to the pre pantry truth from them. Johnson hasn't been called back yet or been told when, or If that will happen. I am looking forward to coming back. It was a great job in January 4 million people had been unemployed for six months or more. It's what economists call long term unemployment. And we haven't seen levels this high since the great recession that worries economists. Bill Sprigs, he says. Many employers stigmatize people who haven't worked in months. The longer someone's without a job, the harder it is to find a new one. So rather than the typical way you think of a line working you show up at the movie theater. I'm first in line. I've been here I'm next. It works in the opposite. The people who are newly unemployed get the first in line and what's worse, this will likely hit vulnerable workers even harder. Women and people of color have lost the most jobs during the pandemic. They already tend to be paid class and so long term unemployment can scar their earnings permanently. Ah McKenzie study predicted It could also take two years longer for them to recover those jobs. Here's co author Quay Lin Island group, the progress we see on closing the gender gap, even take of it out of the picture. Is so slow. And so then you pause that slow glacial progress and you make negative progress. It was deeply discouraging. There's another worry too. What if certain jobs don't ever come back? How people work and live has been changing dramatically during the pandemic, and that shaken up all kinds of jobs. One of the biggest shifts has been more people working from home. That's had ripple effects for Gloria Espinosa into last April. She cleaned offices in San Francisco. Superbly store. We got a visit from our supervisor, He gathered us all on the parking lot, and he talked to us and tell us that we were gonna be laid off. I was wondering God, why us? It was like receiving a bucket of cold water. That's the way I felt a year later, the employees whose work spaces she wants clean, are still remote. And so Espinosa is still unemployed. She knows there's no guarantee, but she feels confident she will be called back to her old job when offices reopened, be instructed bombs, a necessity to move Chapman on the whole. I think that actually is going to be probably the need of additional workers because we're gonna have to make sure that we can provide that. Extra clean a space that the workers deserve. On the other end of California, Carrie Belisle wonders what her work will look like in the future. She's been a tour guide for 35 years. We are in love, Toya. Has my Minnesota group like he's traveled. Grinding to a halt last spring, Belisle has tried to keep busy, even organizing virtual tours Join me Tuesday at two for my virtual presentation about counselor Deck finally began a new full time job. What's good here at a vaccine? Put it in San Diego. It's just nice to To chat with people and especially people that are getting vaccinated because they're all so happy and excited. While knows this new job won't be permanent, she's hopeful tour Busses will start rolling again. And she can go back to work in the field She's loved for so many years. Sam bring Glass NPR news.

What a cactus taught me about prickly emotions
"So i'm a sports and performance psychologist which means i get to work with a lot of people like athletes military professionals in top government agencies. His career in safety depend on peak performance. And all never forget this one story. A soldier told me about his time serving in iraq. It was around early. Two thousands when the united states had military operations in both iraq and afghanistan. Enduring this time. Many locals were encouraged to come forward and share information about potential threats. So one day. This iraqi man approaches the game of the us outpost to share intelligence about a possible threat but instead of being treated like an ally he was met with hostility by the soldier. Who's debriefing him. But that's likely because just days earlier soldiers from another unit were killed in a surprise attack and so as the interview continued so did the soldiers irritation and as a result. The iraqi became frustrated in the end. Tempers were flaring so high that the interview was cut short in the following day. Two separate units were hit by roadside bombs. we'll never know for sure. The attacks could have been stopped. Heavy interview gone differently. But the reason why. I'm telling you this story is because it's an excellent example of a super common problem that keeps so many of us from performing at our best. It's how wilbur regulate emotions which is one of the most common drivers of a good and bad performance and it turns out how well you're able to regulate your emotions depends on how susceptible you are to a principle called emotional contagion. It's just like it sounds. It's how quickly you can catch the emotions of other people and then take them on your own. The problem is though most of us are highly susceptible to other people's emotions which means even the smallest factor can impact how we perform at work on the field and even at home but lucky for us. We can learn how to avoid other people's emotions by becoming better at regulating our own. So here's how i like to think about this. I remember seeing a giant teddy bear looking trump for the very first time hiking in arizona in because it looks soft i reached out to touch it but by the time my hand was close. Enough the spines on the branches jumped in print me literally. My hand was covered in every time. I tried to remove one little sucker would break off in a burrow deeper into my skin in this plant. It has the perfect name. It's called the jumping choya and it left a lasting impression figuratively literally so much so that when i teach people how to regulate their emotions and avoid cashing the emotions of other people i refer to the jumping choi effect and over the years. I have concluded that the jumping toya's are just like people they can be pricks in. If you're not careful they can deepen to your skin so to understand how this happens in real life. I think it's helpful to know what emotions actually are. And there's two popular theories about where emotions come from. The first theory is called cognitive appraisal which basically says that the experience of emotion is actually you evaluating if your current situation aligns with your goals are expectations. So let's say you're on your way home to share some exciting news with your significant other. You walk through the door you find them sitting on the couch but instead of a hello or how was your day. They leave the room without saying a word now. That's not how you expected your to go. Which could lead to the emotion of feeling annoyed. Does that make sense. The other series called physiological perception. Which is all about the emotions be subconsciously. Assigned to the physical changes in our body. Public speaking is a great way to understand this. How perfect right. Usually right. Before i speak. I get butterflies in my stomach now. If i had seen physical feeling. The last time. I spoke in public in a speech went well. I may interpret that situation or that sensation as the emotion of excitement. But let's just say. I bombed my last speech. I may now interpret that butterfly feeling as nervousness or fear basically we overlay our physiological perception from our past experiences onto our current situation. And what's interesting. Is that both of these. Theories also play into how we assess the emotions of other people because the part of the brain processes emotion and memory. The limbic system is considered to be an open loop system. It influenced by any external factor. Think about it. Have you ever passed by someone and without saying a word you can feel how annoyed how excited they are and then maybe you felt annoyed or excited to. It's an interesting concept to think about because our brains are hard-wired to pick up. These settled jews in our environment. Which makes it possible for the other person's emotions to jump in attached to you but what many people don't realize is that every human being is affected by our open loop system. Many people at work or many people on the same team inevitably catch feelings for one another sharing everything from jealousy to envy and worry to joy.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap
"Atlanta atlanta. Okay so we have two new faces. Who grace us in this episode. We have looked toya who is a friend of and we have drew sonora. Who has the fast housewife of the season. Well and we have a third person. If you count drew's husband ralph. who is. He is hot but he is also a little too much unpacked there. So i can't wait till we get to that final scene but yes. He is at first glance a very attractive man and we know how we all feel about getting a new hothouse husband. But there's much to do. There are a Twa comes into our lives very an interesting fashion because kenya usually does not warm up to new people. But she's all about the toyota innocent even her friends. Candy's friend right. Her lower third is candy's friend. That kenya stole link is not very common for kenya. Take to a newbie like this. I'm getting crushed vibes and there was a hint of that in the super team for the season where kenya says something about. I've got a crush on her or something along those lines. So we're definitely seeing the beginning of this girl crush that may ultimately become something else. I don't know but it is not characteristic of kenya to be taking to somebody like this right. I kind of hope that marriage has put kenya off so much that she's just like you know what women women now i mean. It wouldn't surprise me also does drew starting the show in a boot make you think of brandy from beverly hills. That is such a great point. I didn't make the connection before. But yes so really. She has the makings of becoming a great housewife late. There's something about the lucky boot and let us not forget. Porsche was in a boot at bravo con. So there's a lot of good luck there. Yes yes yes yes. We found out a lot about drew's marriage. Can we just get to that part. Yeah definitely there's yeah for sure okay. Because drew and her husband. Ralph are living with drew's mom. Yeah we'll technically. She's living with them. Well the mcdan- right. Yes that sounds like a recipe for divorce. That's i don't know how else to say especially in quarantine like it's it's just not setting yourself up for success. Definitely not i mean pastor. Jeanette seems like quite a character. And i also love when we get a new housewife. We get potentially a hot house husband and we got a mom who's going to be a big character and we got that in her. But i feel like quarantine or not. I'd be like after a certain amount of time. Mom you gotta go back home because we got got a situation going on here with my family that needs to be worked on and clearly. There's a lot of work to be done Andrew and ralph's relationship.
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” season 13 episode 2 recap: Drew Sidora and LaToya Ali debut
"Housewives of atlanta okay. We got caught up with candy. Who are actually. This wasn't the season premiere this episode to forgive me of real housewives of atlanta season thirteen episode two but we were introduced to the new cast members in this episode juicer door and the toya ali of the toyota immediately set the screen on fire. And every time you see her and what she's doing and saying she's incredibly beautiful. I love her accent. I love hearing her speak Her in kenya have great chemistry off one another mind not afraid of you know. She doesn't shy away from conversations that feel a little bit uncomfortable. She makes point She had a great debate withdrew dora. Who is the new peach holding cast member Actress juicer door. I'm sure many people are familiar with her from the game From movies she played. T buys she's been in a lot of things But druce doors on the show personally I liked the fact. She has a beautiful family. Beautiful children husband is attractive They are they've been married for six years And she is present in the that she's in. There was a great scene of kitchen with cynthia who adore. Who looked beautiful. This whole episode. cynthia. You live my god but yeah exactly but Her said you had a great scene shooting together. I will say that. I felt like some of jean. Some of drew scenes were affected. I'll just put it like that. Some of her scenes were affected. There's a conversation that took place between her and her husband where it was revealed that when he gets upset he basically goes missing He had gotten upset. He got upset and he was gone for three days. She didn't know where he was. He was responding to her text and her communication but he never said where he was and he was gone for three days. People showed up on being a black man and put it off on a lot of different things. But i put the whole conversation off. His bad acting is it was very unrealistic. Things things that they were saying. Especially in a black household and druze pacing and cadence. And just the things that she the dramatic moments in the conversation. It just failed affected. And so i. I just felt so you think this is just another tv role for her. 'cause 'cause you know on the game. She played usa doors. Are you saying. She's on housewives playing again her seen i dunno Because it was could be yourself or google. Play your so. She's got a peach and letoya doesn't have a peach cuss a very good question after allegedly his lee alleged the exactly asante an the toyota is heavily Shown in heavily involved in a lot of the Major plotlines of the season And allegedly the word on the street. Is that la toya was all set to be a fool. Peach holding housewife and her estranged husband at the last minute pulled out in wanting his children to be a part of the So the totality of her life and they made the decision to have her cast as a friend of the show. But i think she's one of those friends She's one of those friends that has a lot of involvement in the season in the way that marlo hampton does so the toy presence will definitely be failed in after when episode. It already is Drew seen affected

"The president, the Illinois restaurant Association. Sam Toya. Good morning, Sam. Good morning, Bob. Let's start with what I hope is good news. Grubhub with $10,000 grants for some restaurants tell us about this. Yes. Oh, every little bit helps on grow. Pub is reaching out to our local restaurants throughout our 77 communities here in the city of Chicago to help them, you know, prepare for the winter season as we move forward here so again. Is this the distance stimulus package We're looking for? No, but every little bit helps, And we're grateful for grub. Love this stuff up and help our Restaurants throughout our you know, throughout our great neighborhoods. I've been talking about this for a couple of days. Is there any chance restaurants, the restaurants that have spent thousands and thousands of dollars to upgrade their filtration systems? Their air systems could get a Some kind of a break some kind of special dispensation right now. I know that the small mom and pop restaurants can't afford to do that. But A to least it would be a start in some of the bigger places, wouldn't it? It would be. I mean, you know, that's why we really, you know, feel the federal government ages. Stuff up. A Z government is the one that has shut us down on indoor dining. And in there are Heroes Act, which which, within that bill that passed on the house there was the restaurant asked for $120 billion in grants and within those grants. You could do exactly what you're talking about. That's so Yes, there is. There is something out there. We just need the federal government to stop up. We need the United States Senate to, you know, past the restaurant asked and then have the president sign it so we can help our restaurants throughout the country and 25,000 restaurants here in the state of Illinois. What about putting a little pressure on our local of politicians for some sort of a tax break for anomaly restaurants, but other businesses right now. Yes. You know, we've we've talked, Tonto. You know, we have worked with the, uh, you know, Governor he has the big grants s O. The state still has about $170 million left the business interruption Grant. If you have less than $20 million in revenues in 2019 and meet other conditions, you can apply for these grants. So there are stuff out there. We're still talking with the governor's peep on other things that the government can cuts the state government can step up and help us with. Also, the city just stopped up with Chicago hospitality Grant. These are new grant programs for independent restaurants with under $3 million in revenue, and you know, we're encouraging restaurant owners operators to apply for the big grants on the state level and the Chicago hospitality grant. On the city level again. Every little bit helps. But the real money is in the federal government. And we need the federal government stuff off for the stimulus Bill the restaurant act or give us a second round on P P p loans that turned into grants. I know there's a lot of controversy about the numbers, and a group of business owners say they have some data to prove. That restaurants are not the prime cause of these Corona virus outbreaks in the city of Chicago. I've talked about this, and I know restaurants and bars are lumped together. It seems like bars are more of a problem where you would have people sitting shoulder to shoulder without masks. What what's the position of the Illinois Restaurant Association on all this? Again Restaurant we were you know all restaurant owners operatives. The only restaurant association always cares about the health and safety off their guests. And your team members who always want to hear what the doctors and scientists had to say. But we don't understand is why are we the on Lee Industry? You know, we see you know it's spiking. His bad is we see it's spiking. Why are we doing on Lee industry? It is entirely closed down indoors.

"New Orleans. There's finger pointing over the lack of electrical power at some polling sites after it was knocked out by Hurricane Zeta.

"toya" Discussed on That’s Strange
"Mere days after moving into the house, the family complained of swarms of flies that covered the porch of their new home and this is November right. And if anybody has ever read about demonic things of any kind or that that kind of like infestation or presents, this is a common like calling card of that. So this should be like an immediate flag. If you see a bunch of flies around your house at a time, they should be there that might mean something bad. Right right and I wonder what? The wonder why I wonder what that's high to that is you know what the tide is. Yes. Because I read too much. So yeah I do it's the putrid smell that is often associated.

The ground and really focused into keeping 'em it on point so they can build this amazing business together. So I think it was a great transition into go from working with great creators like Courtney Kemp and fifty to now be on the Lena and her crew has been just an incredible transition and so there and you've been acting in so many different types of roles for over ten years I'm curious like what type of role do you hope comes next I'm always looking for relieve rooted and grounded stories just stories that matter to us. Our culture stories that we can relate to stories that people aren't telling I'm attracted to that kind of material, which is why I'm also producing house well, because the great thing about producing, find your own material and bring it to life you're working on a new project that gives a behind the scenes. Look at the NFL. Tell us a bit about this new series and why you wanted to be involved. So fifty were executive producing together the book that we read that we love and it's more about like what goes on behind The scenes with sports, but it's mostly about the women. So many women just give up their own lives just to be there for their partner, who's an athlete losing sports, and what happens when you like I have my own life and I want to do my own thing and what effect does that have, but it gets really grimy and gritty in real and obviously you know sports and athletics or something you know I know a lot about so I was able to really give some of my stories and really gives some real. Really exciting content to the show. So we're excited we're excited to hopefully be in production really soon and get that oven going you're also working on. Producing Story About Sin Toya Brown long you know young woman who killed a man in self defense sixteen was tried as an adult given a life sentence was then finally offered clemency last year. Why was it so important to you to make sure that this story was told that just such a powerful story and I had been tracking it for a while and watching toys interviews and just what happened to her from young growth? Donau. Moe's fascinated at like what? Was Your Life like that. took you down these paths and then her completely changing her life and finding God and becoming the spokesperson for young girls and sex trafficking. I thought it was amazing. So that's something we're so excited about and wanted to be so careful with because now we're telling someone's life story. You don't WanNa, take it lightly or take that for granted art. So power was truly one of my favorite shows I've talked to breathe way too much. I still found myself wondering what carers from the show would do if they existed in the real world. So We'd love it if you could just indulge us in a little bit of a game. Okay. We're GONNA throw out a scenario and you tell us which character from power best fits the situation. All right. Okay. So we all know that Joe Biden made good on his promise to choose a woman to be his running mate. On the democratic. Ticket but we want to know which female character on power would have made a better choice as a running mate. Okay. So You already know off the top of the dump quick witted she's smart. She knows the system how to get through the system I. think he'd be a great running Angelo for sure I mean she kinda got caught up by the system that numerous through it and she knows the law whether she was part of breaking the law or not. She knows the law. So I think she would have been great. All, right. Second Question. So none of the men on power were necessarily winning awards in the a good boyfriend healthy relationships department lynch two men from power. Do you think could go head to head in a horrible boyfriends verses? Who would you like to see? I think draze caring. There was a horrible boyfriend who said the daughter the always mentioned that he didn't care what happened. Durham mom probably ghost I don't love how he handled the situation between you know Tasha Angela and how he did that I wouldn't say Tommy 'cause. You did kill Holly. You're right. Maybe that's what I was gonNA. Relationship you've really love Kisha and things that he would have never heard. Anything to protector. So he might not have been the ideal boyfriend, but I think he was getting to a place where he was really trying to eat. Better. But he did last gopher. No

You've been there 10 years and you've been paying rent every month. And the on ly reason you're leaving is why did this manager all of a sudden? Not like you. What happened that she all she started coming after you. What happened? What changed? Not on some day one when I matters. We didn't have managers before. So from day one when she can. She is by China. Only at this time She came in with a man for possession then because everything in our house was broke. We had a had a landlord for two years, trying to cover her own butt. And when she did the inspection, she's only been in my house one time and they did inspection. They haven't fixed anything. So these these damages came up after I said I didn't want to move over addition because I don't know that I would never let nobody she gone from my also. I'm not going for that. So then a cheat, but I'm trying to pay my rent. It was fine on late name is trying to put me out before because of that. And then they shot Give me another letter and in a way that they do the agreement and then agreement was for them not to bother me anymore and take my my mom. Brent tell July and Toya Toya Toya, do you have Do you have that agreement you side? No, no. Can you send us a copy of Daphne? I want you to get Toya's information. So if we can get back in touch with her, and I want to call the landlord I'm gonna have deputy Doc called the landlord. I just want to know the status right now and how long we have to help her. Toya. Um, you were not shooting a gun. They just made that up. Yeah, I made it up, and she said that there was a gun sound barrier on my roof. I got up on the roof, take pitches and saw the lawyers they are seeing now. Do you have any criminal record whatsoever? No, I don't. Okay. And where does your girl go to school? All right. Hang on, Daphne, get her information. Okay? I want I want to see what we can do about it. I don't know. He's a single mom. Listen, people might be thinking of being snowed. I don't know. We'll check it out. That's what we'll do. Mike, You have a comment on diesel. He said. All of a sudden is diesel started smoking. Mike, Go ahead. What do you have to say about that? He has a 2008 s 3 50 Super duty, Dodge. Go ahead, Mike. I believe that Mike fell of Tom. Sorry about that. Mike Mike fell off. Let's go to Jeff. Kimber Transmission. Jeff. Um, What's the biggest reason why I would. Ah, why would it start smoking all of a sudden? Hey, Jason, is it white smoker? Black smoke? It's white smoke. What is that? Usually What's ad with white smoke? Typically with white smoke, you alert your either over Aird under fueled or you could potentially be burning water coolant er, those of your three most common that'll cause white smoke. And what would be the quickest way to diagnose it For Jason. He doesn't have a lot of money. What's the quickest way to the diesel? You should usually still be able to smell something slightly sweet. If it's burning the antifreeze is not always a good 1% indicator. But most of time you can actually smell it. Burning off inside the exhaust wouldn't draw any codes. The 2008 Well, potentially depending on what the issue is where, if you start to obviously experienced some sort of overheat in or knocking or whatever. Jason Jason Yeah, I'm not experiencing any overheating, No knocking. Um, I did recently changed the air filter and my check air filled her lights on. And you also hold on baby. Do something else. Didn't you also change something else? Tell me what else you did everything you've done since you had it. The members So the number seven glow plug. We did an oil change. We change the air filter. We changed the Phil filter, both of them. There's one on top and one underneath, okay, and that is all I all I all I have done. What any of that can changing the injector can changing the filter and doing all the oil change and oil filters. Can any of that trigger that, Jeff? Yeah, he's drawn in too much air. No with a diesel. They don't call it richer, lean. They called over fueled or under fueled Overheard under end, So if if you know well, that's nothing to disturb, go into their air cleaner system going through old plugs if he's drawn in air where he shouldn't He's not gonna have sufficient sufficient fuel to mask the air intake. He's gotta knock that down or to get better right next to you Now. Is that an adjustment? Or is that a leak? Somewhere? There's probably at least somewhere. He's probably got something loose for cocked or something. That if if, if he drove by, I mean, is it something you could look at and give a quick hunch? Or is it something that will take a lot of shop time? Probably take a little bit of time for us to run it out. Saying, Okay, we're just trying to figure out how much time it would take to diagnosis for him because he as he said he just bought it, Jason, you know, I'm not sure anybody can just do it by looking at it. But You need, uh, you need to dedicate. What do you thinking, Jeff? I don't know. And I'm just thinking for a diagnosis, But this is I'm just gonna be upfront with you, Jeff. And it might be better maybe to call up Maybe automotive. Ah, Andy's or s O s inspections. He needs a diagnosis because he may be inclined to do it himself. And I know you know, just like any other time we talked about it. You used the term kiss before you know, Keep it simple, stupid changed after he tampered with the vehicle. Go back to the last point of repair, but 99% of times. You're gonna find your issue there. That you did something wrong on that, Uh, maybe something's loose or something's leaking. But give me a rough idea. I don't have to take a break and one sec here. Give me a rough idea, And I know this is hard to do. But you give me the the the best case scenario and the worst case scenario for diagnosing this. For a time wise asses farce cost as faras cost and I would have three. OK, so 123 hours. Worst to best and her best. Where's what is an hour of shop time at your place? We're 1 10 50 an hour. Okay, So listen, Jason, we can still keep looking. Or we can ask. Maybe I don't know a vest West inspections does a diagnosis of one problem? Maybe they do. Let's find out and so we'll check with him next. Uh, by the way, Jeff pick a skimmer transmission and gear at Jordan and a rap. Oh, good people, good people, 303. 693 1400 well, there's a lot of confusion when.

Twitter shares stumble after high-profile, unprecedented hack
"Welcome back to pass twitter trading lower today as a company deals with the fallout from the hack of several high profile accounts the FBI. Incident and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle or calling for more information for more on this, let's bring time I, or the chief security officer insights tie welcome great to see you again. You said that that basically the hackers got their hands on the crown jewels twitter. Meaning the administrative access, how should there be more security surrounding the person in the people who have this administrator access privilege? Well twitter does have a great security team. You Know Hindsight is always twenty twenty, but I think there are things that could have been done in order to secure that type of account, but we have to keep in mind you know. We love talking about technology and security, but the attackers the attackers attack people, and so in this case, if somebody was social engineered, it's it's a little bit harder to actually be able to stop the attack. Is this a bigger problem for twitter than than say an attack on the individual accounts? Toya because we have seen attacks on individual accounts, but now we actually have access to all the account, so you can run a coordinated tackling the one we've seen now and gain access to very high profile counts. I spoke to you last two on in doing research and doing the interview for the Bitcoin Documentary, and we talked a lot about the dark web, so you know this. CD Corner of the Internet quite well What's your take on on what the hacker could have gotten and what it could be worth? On the dark web. So, the attacker in this case beyond access to a lot of different accounts right so. The fact that he made off with one hundred and twenty thousand dollars on, consider that pretty lucky in the sense of if it ended with that because we have to keep in mind, it's not just the molly loss other went to these bitcoin accounts. If the attacker really wanted, he could sell this to another player who could do a lot of other things with it, and in addition think about it if they would have taken this to political figure and tweeted something now that could cause diplomatic issues as well. What's your sense as to whether or not? We've seen the full fall out of this hack attack. I mean. These hackers could've ETA have had access for very long time sort of trolling or or or getting harvesting data in direct messages, etc, for purposes of maybe blackmail later down the line. It seems to me that. Maybe we don't know what the full impact of this is. Not Twitter are still investigating this, but judging by the actions, the attacker took i. it seems like they were actually under some time constraints because they did try to sell access to some of these accounts on an external an underground forum. And later pretty quickly moved onto actually sending out this. BITCOIN SCAM so since we're actually under some time. Pressure otherwise. I would expect them to do exactly as you said. Hang around a little bit planned and coordinated this attack. Keep in mind that when you have access to something as important as an admin panel. You know that at some point somebody will detected on. Somebody will put the brakes on that so I think that he had to engage pretty fast. You think it's a one off a tie. For this specific case, yes, will attackers stopped looking for these type of? No way that's that's what they're looking for all right. Thanks for your time.

She's now free and starting over and she's the author of an incredible memoir called freese into area. It's the incredible sin Toy Brown long on. Toray show you have been through an unbelievable journey in your life to get to this point how are you? I'm good. I'm blessed. I mean you must feel the most amazing weight off of your shoulders in your heart. And just how is it? I mean it's good and it you know. Of course there is a weight like it's been lifted but to be honest with you until I can see like the other women that I left behind so I could see some change happening for them to. I won't really feel like that. You Know Big Sigh of relief But it was definitely like you know I have my own finally Though I mean just even the pictures in the book the the end photos and the sense of relief that we can see is like wow like. She's so lifted. How did you make it through all of this? This this hell that you've lived through. It was literally nobody but God that got me through. It was rough and you know there was times it should. I shouldn't even have survived and I didn't realize the time just how close I was. But you know he was watching out for me. He definitely had angels around me protecting me. I mean this story. The hell of your life starts from early teenage years. And there's really there's really nobody around who's good to you everybody's trying to take from you and us you and I mean I wonder you know just at a young age when you start seeing that happening all the time you lose faith in humanity. Do you not. Yeah so that started you know. Once I left home the little cocoon and my mother's house it was like that it was always someone that wanted something. Always you know some kind of drama happening and just a lot of trauma that I was taking in and for a while you know I did struggle with you. Know filling certain ways about men in general just about people you kinda come to expect the worst from people But you have to realize that just because you experience that with one person to person a few people that doesn't mean it's reflective of everyone and so that several years for me to to get to that place for understood that but before you even meet cutthroat. Who's this sort of central figure in the story? What did you think of yourself? Because there's just not much no no not much you know. I had come to a place where I really didn't feel like I belonged anywhere. I really didn't feel like I was accepted for who I was didn't really know who I was. You know I was just so desperate to to be accepted like the people around me anything that they said that I needed to be how I needed to be behaving. What was acceptable. I was just taking it all in like a pay this is. This is how I'm supposed to be and you know I was just lost like way before I even met him. I mean your I mean your child you were child but you were being treated like an adult quite often and you're dealing with rape dealing with crack using WANNA All see mean just I. I can't imagine what it needs. You think of yourself nathen. I've been much myself at all and I really didn't think much of the things that I was involved with. Either colleges blindly walking into situations and just figuring out how to survive from there. And when you I mean when you meet a man. They've cut throat. One would think one thing that would mean your Davis Right. Yeah Yeah you'd think so but I guess you just you're not really process and what's going on you put in an adult position but you don't have the capacity of adult you're not really thinking and so yeah that was Read right away your leg. He was cute. I wanted to get his number wanted him to have my number. I mean what was that immediate whole that La- because that's would start to lead you down the real hell you went into. I think like he was just really good about and now I can see it like you know we would have conversations. It was about me like up until that point I had learned how to present myself to men in order to get what I wanted from them. So you know I would usually just listen to them. Listen to certain key words and then just say every now and then something but with him. It was me being able to talk about you. Know my innermost desires my thoughts and and things like that and I was like oh well. He's interested in me and you know that that's all I had been looking for someone who saw me someone who was interested in me. Someone who accepted me and all he really did was just sit there and be quiet and let me talk but get the first man who's listening to me and it's so powerful and you feel like affirmed in seen right for the first time right. Yeah that kind of starts to suck you in. Oh yeah quickly. Like very quickly within his face days like all of a sudden it was like you know. I didn't want to see him for an hour. It was like on the second day. Let's spend the whole day together you now but it quickly becomes very treacherous. Because he's you know his friend is using you and then he doesn't believe you. He believes his friend is almost rapidly. He starts sort of pimping you you sleep with him. You say I mean why did you? I mean I guess you accept that because you don't think anything of yourself and like the crazy thing is like you know he was saying all these things and I'm like well no I'm not I'm not a sled like whatever saw really didn't like constantly like accepted as truth and whenever you know it would be like. I was doing what I was doing. It was like a whore. I'm not I'm not doing this. I'm prostituting like this is not what I'm doing. I'm just you know going out and getting some money from a guy like you just kinda rationalize things in a way were like later. You're looking back and it's like what was what was that. And Yeah like that was definitely the turning point. The I can't remember what I call them in the book but I'll just say with his friend Yeah that was definitely the turning point when things just turned ugly and I almost think like now like you know they plan that or something like was that just the excuse.

"That's in Toya and me facing life's in Toya's story, which aired on PBS independent lens take it from there, man. So she ends up going to trial on two years after her arrest in two thousand and four and they decide that they're going to try her. She was juvenile at the time that this happened and that they would try her as an adult. Why? I think some things that people probably know intuitively is that black children. Don't get to be children. There's a kind of adopt affiliation of children, particularly black children children of color. So sin Toya at sixteen wasn't seen as a young person. She was seen as an adult already, basically. And they put her on trial as an adult. She ended up getting convicted. And she ended up getting convicted her sentence was life in prison. So you can imagine the shock to the system of somebody who has basically been sexually course, turn tire life who was a run away. So she was already precarious. Defended herself against somebody. Who basically it's nothing else was doing statutory rape. He was forty three. She was sixteen years old. And she ends up in a situation where she has got to figure out if she's going to take potentially put herself at risk of dying or if she's going to take action she chooses to take action he's punished for it. So she's punished basically for survival. Yeah. Do you think our case would have ended up differently? If she was white and her rapist was block. I mean, it's hard to know about these things I will say this black people in this country. Have traditionally historically been punished for any perceived transcript transgression, and so and punish more excessively than white people. But I do wanna make a point that I think is important, which is that we have a mass incarceration problem in this country that whole that basically also sweeps in bunch of poor white people so while while black people are disproportionately targeted by this as some white people are pulled into the system as well. So what we have is a mass criminalization and mass incarceration problem. I think we're going to have to do some work to dismantle the Toyota Brown was sentenced to life in prison. She was she has served what she will have, sir. Fifteen years for her release in August. That's right. And you've talked about the support. She's had this all the time. She's been in prison. But what forced the Republican Tennessee governor Haslam to grant clemency? And were you surprised when he did? I wasn't surprised that he no because I'm an organizer and when people mobilize in put pressure on targets we can win. And I think what happened was that the supreme court in Tennessee in early December came back in of helds decision to say that. In fact, he wasn't going to ever be able to be paroled before serving fifty one years in prison. So that she would have gotten out of prison had a chance to get out of prison. Go in front of a parole board at the age of sixty seven and that particular supreme court's decision in Tennessee is what galvanize this latest version of a mobilization on her behalf. So people were like, wait a minute. First of all, this is unjust that she spent one day in prison. Secondly, they're going to have her spend fifty one years in prison before she even gets a chance for. A second chance this is unacceptable. And I thought point a group of different groups all around the country came together with a targeted effort to go. After that that included groups like Nashville colored change the highlanders center that some of those three two of those three are based in Tennessee. So it makes sense that they would kind of push. I want to bring up the fact that, you know, a lot of people on social media got involved and started making phone calls at one point. My understanding was that the governor's office was getting six thousand calls in a day. That's unprecedented on hurt us. They had to like switch over their lines to another line holds together in order to keep up with amount of people that were pushing for her to get out. So. Reaction. Well, my understanding was that she put out a statement at the end of that she was really thankful for people's support. I think she's I'm sure she's absolutely thrilled to be able to be released from prison you've called her act a radical act of self love, explain well, I think that in this culture where black lives are incredibly devalued where we are in a position of always having to defend our very existence that to insist that you deserve to live by any means necessary is inactive radical self love side absolutely believes that that's the case. I want to say something though that I think is very important right now for people who are really in the moment very excited about this. It is very good that she's out of prison. I think people should know that she's being released into supervised parole was she's going to be on for ten years. That's a decade, which means he's going to have spent twenty five years of her. Very young life in under state supervision for those people who don't know parole is extremely extremely restrictive. They're going to give a whole set of conditions, which mostly be arbitrary. If she violates any of those conditions. They could violate her right back to prison. She's going to be spending ten years, basically on pins and needles making sure that nothing goes wrong missing missing any sort of parole meetings ending up going somewhere that she wasn't supposed to go by accident those things convey late you, and so she's going to have to be very careful for the next ten years that she doesn't get violated back. So she's not one hundred percent free. And I think that's something people should pay attention to you. You have trace the treatment of black woman who dared to fend themselves back to slavery by at least. Yeah, I mean in this country. Coming to this country as chattel so property, not person, we as black women in particular were conceivably subjected to sexual violence was no recourse, absolute impunity wrote a piece for the guardian last week that talked about the story of enslaved young woman named Celia who fought back against her master who was also her rapist killing him, and she went to trial. She had very vigorous defences is eighteen fifty-five in Missouri. And the court found that she was property not person therefore could not be raped, and they ended up executing her in in December of eighteen eighteen fifty five, and I think a lot about that. Because it shows something about black women having no selves worth defending having no selves worth being seen as valuable enough that you can have bodily autonomy. Really important. How many central Browns are embarrassed? There are thousands of Santo Browns in prison. I think I want to also make the point that overwhelmingly, especially when you look at women's prisons, the overwhelming majority up to ninety percent of the people in there have had histories of sexual and physical violence prior to ending up in prison. What there's a wonderful activists, formerly incarcerated survivor herself named Susan Burton who talks about the fact that what we do is incarcerate trauma. When we incarcerate women, and when we incarcerate gender, non conforming people. So there are thousands of scenarios, and I think we should really pay attention to the fact that we should be fighting for all of those to be free. And that this example of a governor doing commutations shows how much power the executive has to actually free people, and we are in a state in New York where we have a governor who's probably one of the most merciless governors. We have who almost never commute anybody's sentence. And we have close to fifty thousand people locked up in our state here in New York, supposedly progressive haven, right? And he has commuted nineteenth sentences in eight years nineteen and one of those was a domestic violence criminalized survivor. That's unacceptable. So if people have energy as a result of since ways case, I'm excited about that. But I want people to channel that energy into fighting in your own state and figuring out how we're going to free all criminalized survivors of sarum. I wanna thank you so much for being with us organizer. Her education who's worked an anti-democratic violence programs as well as anti incarceration, racial Justice program.

Now. Thanks for having me talk about what has taken place in this case and the significance of the Republican governor of Tennessee granting her clemency. How did this happen? Well, I think it's important to note that Sinn Toya has been surrounded by a support team of people for at least the past decade in the beginning. She had a very kind of proactive lawyer who was very supportive of her. And has become a lifelong friend and continues to support her her subsequent lawyers where people also who really fought for her. To try to make sure that she wouldn't end up with a life sentence. She has had community members family people who've kept her story and her name alive. For all of these years. I think I want to make sure people understand that this didn't come out of nowhere. And that people have been fighting on her behalf for almost as long as he's been incarcerated. It was recently with in two thousand seventeen of last year, you mentioned riana and Kim Kardashian posting some stuff on Instagram, which got more people to know her case in the modern era. Most people actually still thought she was sixteen and most people also thought he'd just happened. Well, let's step back for a moment. Yeah. What did happen? Well, happen to Santo. You Walston Toyota in two thousand and four scenario was sixteen years old. She was picked up four sacks by a forty three year old man named Johnny Allen who took her to his house and sin Toya's says that when she got there first he was haggling her for money about the money. Secondly, he showed her a bunch of guns that he had in his possession Thirdly as you heard in the tape before she was worried because he was. Asking what she felt Louis strange. And when he leaned over on his bed. She he she he had showed her some guns under his bed. She thought that he was going for a gun. He was going to harm her. She had a gun that had been given to her by her pimp a guy named cutthroat who she'd been living without a motel from the time.
