And someone else with shoes. That smelled like onions. Just another wonderful boston morning. On the metropolitan transit authority or the mta for short. Charlie lived near kendall square in cambridge. But he worked in downtown boston so the train was every morning he would get up early. Pack himself a sandwich and kiss his son and wife goodbye then it was a short walk to the mta station where he would be swept into his morning train those days. It cost ten cents to ride. That seems pretty cheap. But charlie only earned eighty cents an hour so he had to budget carefully. Of course all the careful planning in the world won't save you when the tax man comes. The wheels of government are slow but heavy when they come rolling and that day they were about to roll right over old charlie as he settled into his ride he noticed new signs hung up all over the train. They read new exit tax five cents an exit tax. He muttered. What's that about. Don't you read. The paper said the man with shoes that smelled like onions. The politicians get ten cents to get on. Now that taken five cents to get off they literally gonna nickel-and-dime us to death. When does it start. Charlie asked he only brought diamond day and he had already spent that to get on the train.

That album was from nineteen sixty nine and the single itself wasn't released until nineteen seventy actually after their second album. Chicago to came out well so then they reached back into the first album and they were like what was hidden treasure. Yeah and it went to number seven on the charts. I mean I have definitely heard that song before. It's wild that that was on. The radio. Songs starts out like the overture from Pippen. I'm mean it's wild that that the beginning of that song the kind of it sounds straight of like the beginning of a music hall. It's interesting we just listened to that deep purple song that was so blues-based Robert Lamm. Who wrote the song and sings it? One of the things he said about when he was coming up with it was that he was trying to come up with something that sounded a little bit different and he specifically was trying to avoid a blues based on. Hey Swan for Broadway honey. And he got it. Obviously you know. That's abandoned has horns in it and I think he was thinking like okay. Let's try to think of US song that we'll have a good trumpet Solo. Well here's the thing you know. I went through a scoff as I am not one to scoff at Horn Horn in song. I like that song. It's it's breezy it's fun. Yeah Very Breezy. It's got to. I mean it's got that kind of like lyrically. The photo deep -Ness of is pretty great. Does anybody really no one asked him what time it is on his watch and he literally has an existential crisis about it. It's also maybe like a little bit of a Dick move of like. Hey I'm in a hurry you know what time it is and the response is like taking a long drag of a cigarette and going. Hey man does anybody really know what time it is? It's like I don't have time for your shit. Please just tell me as well know at the time is I don't know you. I don't WanNa get into it but can you just tell me what time it is? A you know you gotta take if you WanNa know what's on the watch MAG my dude listening to the song I did. Not and I've heard this a million times on the radio. I guess the album cut is a little bit different because I had not heard before that he's talking during some of the verses. Yeah I could hear them in my ear. I didn't realize that either. It kind of weirded me out do you think that's not in the radio. Edit it is him just like people running everywhere yes sir really jazzy. With it I had to check that something else wasn't like playing like an ad or something on another page because it really threw me because I feel like I know this song front and back just because it's such a classic rock staple one of your favorite song. Because I put it on two Freakin groove. Out Dude sometimes. You're just really WANNA get your mind blown by the by the question of time Sometimes it's good to sit and reflect so let's move on with our story here. The store that I'm going through the magic of song and let's go to something where I'm sorry really quickly. I just need. Everyone is listening to know that when he said through the magic of Song he did a little chef's kiss from his lips in to the zoom camera. No one can do that but you can feel it. I think in his delivery. Go back and listen you keep taking me on this journey. Joe. Where are we going now? Does anybody really know? I'm it is so if you do leave your house and drive around.

Latest airport ransomware attack highlights how cybercriminals hold data hostage

"This past week Cleveland's airport began to recover from a computer attack that took down its flight information, baggage displays and it's Email. The FBI says it was another ransomware attack on a sensitive government network, ransomware locks up victims files until ransom is paid more. And more critical public service networks are the targets before Cleveland. The city governments of Newark, Atlanta, and Sarasota were hit and San Francisco's transit authority. The Colorado department of transportation and the port of San Diego today. Twenty six percent of cities and counties say they fend off an attack on their networks every hour, perhaps even worse. Dozens of hospitals have been held hostage across the country. In January twenty eight teen the night shift at Hancock regional hospital watched its computers crash with deepest apologies. The one hundred bed facility in the suburbs. Of indianapolis. Got it CEO Steve long out of bed. We had never been through this before. And it's something that I read in the journals. And I say, oh, those poor folks. I'm glad that's never going to happen to us. But when you come in, and you see that the files on your computer have been renamed in all of the files were renamed either. We apologize for files or were sorry. And there was a moment when I thought, well, maybe they're not so bad. They said they were sorry. But in fact, they had encrypted every file that we had on our computers and on the network. Well, the as we've said still had long told nine one one to divert emergency patients to a hospital twenty miles away. His staff turned to pen and paper. Nothing electron. It could be trusted. This is a ransomware. So this is a virus that has gotten. To the computer system. Would it have the ability to jump to a piece of clinical equipment could have jumped to an IV pump could have jumped to a ventilator we needed a little time just to make sure about that time was a luxury not offered in the ransom demand. Your network has been encrypted if you would like to purchase the decryption keys you have seven days to do. So or your network vials? We'll be permanently deleted. And then it gave us the the amount that we would need to pay to get that back and that came to about fifty five thousand dollars that was the same price demanded of the city of Leeds Alabama three weeks after Hancock hospital near David Miller was surprised his town of twelve thousand would be a target not much to notice in. It's at least not since Charles Barkley graduated from the high school. I didn't know that this Mauer attack was actually a ransomware attack soon as we've found that out that took it to the different level. How do you make? Well, it was. Going to cost us money white the hospital. The city of Leeds was cast back into the age of paper. No, Email, no access to its personnel files or financial systems can all companies and local governments expect to be attacked. I think everyone should expect to be attacked the FBI's might Chris man says cyber-crooks, no governments in hospitals are likely to pay because they can't afford not to until his recent promotion Christmas was in charge of the FBI's cybercrime unit. You're waiting for the day that somebody says we have the nine one one system held hostage in a major city, and we need ten million dollars today. I hope that day never comes. But I think we should prepare for that possibility. Crispin says in twenty seventeen seventeen hundred six cesspool rent somewhere attacks were reported. But he figures that's less than half more. Most businesses. He says would rather pay in admit they were hacked on the wear of one ransomware variant that affected all fifty states that had some thirty million dollars in losses and over six million dollars in ransom payments. I would tell you that the losses are very significant and easily approach one hundred million dollars or more just in the United States that ransomware variant. He's talking about is the one that held handcock hospital hostage. It's cold Samson. After one of its file names experts told Steve long Sam Sam is unbreakable. There was nothing that we could do to unlock those files are only choice was to wipe the system and hope that we had backups or to purchase the decryption keys to pay the rent. Indeed. That is exactly what that means. But Sam Sam had infected the hospitals back-up files, the FBI adv-. Vise long not to pay. But after two days after his staff filled out ten thousand pieces of paper, he paid the ransom. The crooks demanded digital money known as bitcoin ransomware is possible only because bitcoin is so difficult to trace mayor Miller held out two weeks before he paid his bitcoin ranson after a little bargaining at the said to grit my teeth and realized that this was a business decision. And that was the way to do it. So they asked for sixty and you paid eight how did you get there? Well, I agree and

And the is it the New York, metropolitan, whatever transit authority, whatever they call. It has. If you see something say, something, that's smart. So like every popular popular phrase is trademarked this one, you know, somebody can be making a lot of money. I could respect to these protesters that they put a little effort into it. They get paid they show up because they're getting paid. We all know that. Right. They're getting paid. So they show up. They get everyone is. I mean, there's some willing dupes are showing up. Right. But they're usually the ones that the trumps the Trump hats on and other ones you hear whispering. You're like we could have gotten paid for this. What? But the vast majority of these people are getting paid they show up. They get a premade sign. It's not even it's there's no thought put into the sign all the signs of the same. They hand him out. They stand there and one person leaves the chant and they're not even creative with the chance. I could respect them so much more creative with the chance. Yeah. I in that guy's getting paid. I mean, the the idea here is that there are a bunch of tour's who are taking advantage of political movements in order to enrich themselves. And that is this is no exception.

And then they get a bunch of people who are like are maybe well, meaning or whatever and they whipped people up into a frenzy and they storm the storm office buildings, and they don't at work, and because the capitol police torch over three hundred people with unlawfully demonstrating in Senate office buildings in Senate office building. Yes. The and this goes back to my the access to the Senate office buildings has to change. I understand. That we're supposed to be able to have access to our our representatives. And I get that. But it has gotten to the point where they're they can't even go to the bathroom. These people are following them. Everywhere. They go. That can't be anymore. So something has to change. You can't have three hundred people in the Senate office building when people are trying to do their jobs, just untenable. It can't be in here were far beyond three hundred people who were in those buildings protesting. The people who end up being arrested were the ones who vocally agreed to the cops. Yes, I'm willing to be arrested because there's videos yesterday of these cops walking around and basically saying you want to be arrested. And if the answer is yes, then arrest them, if the answer's no the cops is I think get out of the building. And if they don't leave than they arrest them. So the end result is that the three hundred and two people were all the ones who were like. Yep. I know what I'm in for arrest me. So we're going to go into you know, because there are the usual suspects. There were there were some politicians Elizabeth Warren was there, we've got some from her coming up, we had Emily Radic hausky model, supermodel. Amy schumer.

But he was here in Washington, and he got arrested, and then they all see it as a badge of honor. And by the way, the arrest is it's a quick detainment. I mean, they detain them for a second. And then they pay some they pay quick fine. They get back. Right. And it doesn't go on your permanent record. Does it? What does that mean? Well, defined permanent. No. My mother told me there was a permanent record like every high schooler everywhere is like I still have not seen this record. Where did they keep the great?
