How Did the Ancient Land Blob Called Gondwana Become Today's Southern Continents?

"Lauren Bogle bomb here sometimes. Good Science Science can happen just by looking at a map of the world and letting your mind wander for instance observe how Africa and South America seemed to have been very recently cuddled together even though there are currently a couple of thousand miles of ocean between them similarly Madagascar fits perfectly into a little nick in the eastern edge of Africa and the Middle East seems seems to be pulling away from the top of Africa like a corner being pulled off of a hot cookie with a reasonably good representation of the shape and arrangement of the world's continents in front of them. Anyone could easily assess the earth's land masses have definitely been speaking around the name for the southern landmass that once was is Gondwanaland and also known as Gondwana but it wasn't just the shape of the continents that clued researchers into its former existence. They've also looked at similarities. Among plants and animals that live across the modern separate continents from those clues. Gondwana was an idea long before anybody figured out how or why. It worked the secret of course being plate. tectonics and idea that didn't really start gaining steam. Until the mid twentieth century but a nineteenth century Austrian geologist named Edward Seuss put a name to the concept of the supercontinent in his book. The face of the earth the first volume of which was published in eighteen eighty. Three SEUSS didn't come up with many completely novel ideas ideas. But he did a great job of synthesizing. A bunch of the research of the day to conclude that the southern continents and landmasses we now know as South America Africa Arabia India via Sri Lanka and Madagascar had at one point in time been connected because one well just look at them and two. They contained the same rocks and the same fossil's from an extinct feathery leafed tree called gloss of terrace Austria and in Arctic. Oh would be added theory. Thirty years later Gondwana on what was named for a densely forested region of central India where the first fossil evidence of the supercontinent was found in the nineteenth century. WanNa is a word for forest in Sanskrit and the guns are tribe that European explorers. I found living in the region. Even though we now know a lot about the mechanism by which Gondwana China was formed. It's extremely complicated and still being investigated. There's at least one. Peer Reviewed Scientific Journal devoted entirely to the study of the supercontinent. It's it's called appropriately Gondwana research however. There are a few things that we're pretty certain of I got Wada wasn't built in a day. The the making of Gondwana was a long process. Most likely through three major mountain building events driven by the movement of Earth's tectonic plates we spoke spoke via email with Joseph Merit professor in the Department of Geological Sciences. At the University of Florida he explained during the interval from about six hundred fifty to five hundred in fifty million years ago. Various pieces of Africa and South America collided along an ancient mountain chain called the Brazilian belt slightly older but overlapping with the Brazilian. Oh seven seven hundred and fifty to six hundred and fifty million years. AGO is the east African Oregon or Mozambique Belt that resulted from the collision between East Africa and Madagascar India Tree Lanka and parts of East Antarctica. The final collision was along the Kouanga Oregon between all those assembled pieces and the rest of Antarctica and Australia between five five hundred eighty and five hundred and thirty million years ago so it was a couple hundred million years of extremely slow continental car wrecks the created this Beta Ada version of Gondwana. But it wasn't done yet later about three hundred million years ago other landmasses join forces with it to form the giant ball of land. We now no no as Panja. But one continent rule them all couldn't last and sometime between two hundred eighty and two hundred million years ago. Hingis started started disintegrating as magma began pushing up from beneath the mega supercontinent creating rifts in the land that would later become seafloor as Penn.. Jia cracked the top part was pushed to the north creating the continent Laura Asia and Gondwana headed south back when Gondwana was just a baby supercontinent between five hundred and fifty and four hundred eighty five million years ago it hosted some of the very first complex life forms like trial abides bracket pods but since it continued to exist I didn't the drastic period lots of plant and animal. Evolution went down there merit said Gondwana contains evidence for evolutionary changes in the very first complex complex animals. The very first fish amphibians and reptiles the most famous fossils are the gun doina flora such as the loss of terrace fern a freshwater reptile called. Messo Soroush Soroush in a land. Reptile called Lyster Soroush Gondwana existed as a single landmass for more than three hundred million years because of its humongous assize by covered an area of one hundred billion square kilometers or about thirty nine billion square miles and because the continents moved a lot during that time Gondwana experienced many different climates said during the Cambridge. When Gondwana I formed the earth and Gondwana were in a greenhouse state in the late order vision? Four four hundred fifty million years ago gun was moving over. The South Pole and the climate was very cold. Gondwana continued to move through variety of latitudes and depending on where you are located hated. The climate might have been quite warm or more temperate. The continent was so large. That one part of Gondwana might be located at the quarter while another might be located at the poll. It's true it would have been cool to see Gondwana in its prime and although you won't personally get to see its victorious return. That doesn't mean that it's not possible. Possible the continents are always moving and scientists have a lot of ideas about what our next supercontinent is going to look like.

"Those words. The president is states assigned moral acquittals between those spreading those the courage to stand against it. That moment I knew the threat to this nation was unlike any I never seen in my lifetime. So he's going to be talking about this idea of America soul. Try to unite Americans. The other big thing he'll be talking about is rebuilding the middle class. But it's got as much as he might wanna sound like it's already general election. He's already made that move the reality is he's in a very crowded primary race with a lot of questions about whether he's the right candidate for this moment. So how how does he fit into this crowded field? Absolutely. I think there's a lot of stuff to talk about and we can walk through at one of them. A key thing that you need to do to run for president Qissan of support is the fundraising question he's way behind on that this is a crowded field. That is collectively raised more than seventy five million dollars at this point. And he's way behind he'll get started today with the big fundraiser and Philadelphia with high profile names from the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. But that kind of gets at one of the ways that that the way that he has run his campaigns over the years. Aren't quite lined up with with modern campaigning. He's planning on doing a lot of these big fundraisers with big donors. The fact is most of the campaigns running right now, we're getting most of their money from small online donations. And there's a question about how Biden can compete in that world when a lot of questions too about his long record, and certainly some specific moments. I mean, he voted for gun legislation that the NRA said in the eighties was critical for protecting gun rights. I mean, he has acknowledged his role in the grilling of Anita hill at those hearings. I mean, aren't these some of the very issues that are so important to progressives right now. And he's that have owner ability for him. Absolutely. I mean, just look at how much comma Harris, California, Senator longtime attorney general California has has had to reframe decisions that she made in the mid to thousands about her stance on crime policy. Joe Biden was writing big tough on crime laws in the eighties in the ninety. He's been around a long time. And a lot of the things that he looked at his big. Parts of his his his career really are out of sorts with the modern Democratic Party. That also goes for the way that that he has campaigned and conducted himself. I mean, we saw even the Biden wasn't in the race. He was dealing with a lot of the negative being a candidate over the last few weeks and months most prominently several women at step forward to say that ways he had touched them in the past of made them uncomfortable. And he didn't seem to really know how to respond to that putting out several different statements. And then when he he held event talking about it making light of making jokes about it to the point where you had to do a follow up press conference kind of cleaning up. That response you mentioned he's behind other candidates on fundraising. I mean, he says that it was his plan all along to wait and jump in after others. Does he regret that? I think one of the key things will look for is how much money he raises in the first twenty four hours that's been a sign of support from candidates and those numbers have gotten bigger and bigger Bernie Sanders, raise something like six million dollars on the first day if Biden's around there, then that shows that maybe there is the. Cousy out there after all he has been leading the polls pretty consistently over the last few months, though, the question is that just because people know Joe Biden is or is it because there's a deep well of support for Joe bot. Okay. Again, the news we're covering this morning. Former vice president Joe Biden has officially launched his launched his twenty twenty presidential campaign. He's the twentieth. Democrat to declare NPR's Scott detro- joining us. It's mornings. God. Thanks. Thank you. Learning. New details about the people who carried out the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka police. They're made several arrests overnight bringing the total number of suspects in custody to more than seventy five one of Lanka's wealthiest men may be among them. He is known as the Colombo spice tycoon, and he is the father of two of the nine bombers who blew themselves up in churches and hotel Sunday. Police say they have identified eight of the nine suicide bombers some of them appear to have been educated and from middle class families Fawad Girgis is with us now from London he's the author of the book, titled ISIS a history. Thank you so much for being with us this morning. My pleasure. Isis claimed responsibility for the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka soon after they happened. But she did not have a history of his lowest extremism Muslims. There are a small minority. There wasn't an Islamist faction. What do you think explains these attacks? Well, I mean, I think even though had no history of any slam incisions. He you'll have obviously members of the small Muslim community who subsequent to the ideology of ISIS. I think what we need to keep in mind. It takes one individual few individuals to basically do a great deal of harm. And this tells you a great deal about the potency of the ideology, the Islamic state, even though these them estate, the aesthetic Khalifa, the physical Khalifa is no longer in Iraq and Syria, the organization still that the ideologies potent, it has sounds of follows worldwide, it has basically been able to structure its forces, and it has the ability it has the capacity to motivate member. There's in a faraway country like zero Lenka and carry out devastating packs and the pasta, you know, few days is there something particular about Sri Lanka, the society, cultural or or politics that made it vulnerable to two of attack like this or having sort of homegrown insurgents in this way, you know, hardly the Muslim community. Sarah lying is tiny. The has been no major tensions between the tiny was some community and the cushion community. In fact, the tensions that have existed between Muslim community center. Lenka I would the majority Buddhist community, but that game to come back to the idea we really live an age of extremism. You have extremist ideologies of the Muslim far-right and the crucial fire right where they new-zealand or whether relying who subsidi- to the clash of civilizations. Who's violent actions trying to retrigger a clash of religions, and he the two major points. We really need to tell our listeners today. I that the killers in new-zealand and Atlanta, do not speak for the religious communities and politicians and commentators must really avoid the tendency to invest these bloody and terrible and hideous facts was any religious and civilizational. Vetos? Indeed, you mentioned New Zealand tree Lanka's state defense minister claims that the attacks. We saw on Easter Sunday were revenge for the attacks on the mosques in Christchurch New Zealand. Do you think that's plausible? I don't buy it. I don't buy any direct link between the attacks and the killings in using. I you have nine suicide bombers who carried out attacks in three major cities. Imagine imagine the logistical. I mean infrastructure it takes months if not as to plan for such major attacks. And remember the statement put out by is claiming responsibility for these at did not really mention basically new-zealand. Of course, similarities they awesome analogies between the two attacks both attacks target religious minorities, both Muslims in New Zealand and the Christians. In Sierra Langkah and both unnaturally motivate by local consents, the I they have blowback audience in mind, they really would like to trigger a clash of civilization. And you're saying even just the planning to undertake these these kinds of attacks that that preceded the Christ Church bombings. I want to ask you, the what this means for for ICES strength or the organizations ambitions going forward because as you noted they have lost physical ground and a rock in Syria. Is this the first sign that they are reconstituting? Elsewhere. Isis. The aesthetic state has already reconstituted itself. It has basically returned to its insurgent roots. It has ping sales. It has sows into follows. Well wide might take on it. Sad. The end tragically the attacks in New Zealand answer Langkah, basically might become the norm. Not the exception. We really live an.

"But I. There has been a horrific series of attacks in Sri Lanka on Sunday. That the island nation off the coast of India twenty two million people. Eight bomb blast hit churches and luxury hotels. Two hundred ninety people are estimated dead the count may rise. And this was a tack on an attack on Christians. And I just noticed the different reaction between this terror attack, and the one that took place if you weeks ago in New Zealand, for example. Regarding the New Zealand terror attack in which the victims were Muslim and the attacker was the. White extremist. Here's what Hillary tweeted, my heart breaks for New Zealand and the global Muslim community. White supremacy terrorists must be condemned by leaders everywhere. Regarding Lanka on Sunday on this. Holy weekend. For many faiths. We must stand United against hatred violence. I'm praying for everyone affected by today's horrific attacks on Easter worshippers and travelers entry Lanka Easter worshippers also known as Christians, and she didn't mention the suspected attackers. Muslim famous, but in the case of the terror attack Zealand she promptly talked about white supremacy terrace, but nothing in here about Islamic terrorists. That's hillary. Here's Obama New Zealand a few weeks ago, Michelle Knight, sending condolences to the people of New Zealand agree with you and the Muslim community and all of us stand. It gets hatred all of its forms. Specifically identifying the Muslim community is having been targeted. Here's what he said on Sunday. The attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in tree Lanka are an attack on humanity. On a day devoted to love redemption. And renewal we pray for the victims and stand with the people that she Lanka Easter worshipers. Are he and Hillary communicating before they sent out their respective tweets? Also known as Christians. So in the case of New Zealand attack on Muslim community in the case of tree Lanka. Attack on tourists and Easter worshippers and the attacker or religion of the tax not mentioned. I continue to be stunned at the refusal of the media to be fair to President Trump and the mullahs report. I mean, I know whenever expect fairness, but when it's so blatant. Coined the mother report when the president we've talked about this a few days ago found out about the appointment of a special counsel. He quote slump back in his chair and said, oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I'm eft. But the president didn't in the quote there. He said, quote, everyone tells me if you get one of these independent counsels it ruins your presidency. It takes years and years, and I won't be able to do anything. This is the worst thing that has ever happened to me into quote. The president was clearly concerned not about his guilt in collusion. He knew he didn't do anything. He was concerned that this was going to de-legitimize his presidency and be a drag on his agenda for the next. Rest of his term. Now, here's what Lawrence O'Donnell did with that quote. He's the host on MSNBC one sessions told the president that a special counsel had been appointed the president slumped back in his chair and said, oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I'm eft. And that is who Donald Trump really is. Everyone tells me if you get one of these independent counsels. It ruins your presidency. It takes years and years, and I won't be able to do anything. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me and of quote, and that tells you everything you need to know about Lawrence O'Donnell as a man now as you well know young people get a lot of their news from these late night comics, here's John Oliver. Obviously there was one of the major story this week concerning delays and the ongoing solve that. We've been calling stupid Watergate's. Basically Knicks have been kicked in the head by bunny goes on. Also, Billy goes, a White House chief of staff on the reason we're talking about this on Thursday, the Miller appointments release the four hundred pages long and many in the media chose to feature of processing implying sites.

But once the Miller report, actually being ready became clear that that was a lot in its confirmed that Russia interfered in our election. They repeated context Trump associates, but did not conclude that the Trump team engaging for conspiracy with Russia, but the reports that several actions by the president were investigated as potentially nodding to obstruction of Justice Muller's team says if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit obstruction of Justice. We would so state on that lost one is a pretty conspicuous known exoneration. If interview with Joel apposite is this a late night comedy show? Or is this first year lost all what is this late told you just so, you know, a wasn't found guilty of one night as mailbox is also. Specifically wasn't found innocent. Mrs -sarily rule them. But you definitely think twice about hiring them to here comes on some of the details in this report were incredible. When Trump learned the special counsel, Robert Muller was appointed. He slumped back in his chair and said, oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I'm eft. He said, I'm. We obviously don't know whether Trump will face any repercussions from this report just live for little see the point. These young people only think about reading the report little on both sections of the report. And here they are being educated in quotes by a late night. Comic. John Oliver who obviously feels he can make a better living over here. Then overseas. Says that the president said, I'm eft implying. Oh my God. I'm caught red-handed. I've done all these various things nor to conspire with the Russians to get elected legally. And now I'm going to be found out when the rest of the has one more time. Everyone tells me if you get one of the independent counsel's it ruins your presidency. It takes years and years, and I won't be able to do anything. This is the worst thing that has ever happened to me into quote, he was concerned that it was going to derail his agenda. He was concerned about fulfilling his campaign promises. As president of the United States. That's the full quote, and yet on MSN Bohol, the people that watch that heard that truncated part and heard O'Donnell's interpretation at that is who President Trump is. And these people young people fifteen ten percent of ten to fifteen percent of whom I understand your primary news from the late night comic comedy monologues. Also assume that he was Beth because oh my God, I've been caught red-handed as opposed to I'm f-. Now, I won't be able to do my agenda. I know I haven't done anything wrong. I know there's no collusion conspiracy. No corruption. It's gonna drag me down. Everybody keeps telling me, and I won't be able to do anything. That's the correct quote.

We mourn the loved ones of the victims some of them, we can confirm were indeed US citizens. This is America's fight to I spoke with the prime minister Sri Lanka this morning. And our embassy and other parts of government are offering all possible assistance to Americans in the Sri Lankan government alike. Any he will doors? Be brought to Justice expeditiously in America's prepared to support that. We also stand with a million so Sri Lanka NHS who. Support the freedom of their fellow citizens to worship as they please. We take confidence and knowing that not even atrocities like this one will deter them from respecting religious freedom today, our nation grieves with the people Lanka, and we stand committed resolve to confront terrorism together. All right. That's secretary of state. Mike Pompeo news roundup information overload hour nearly three hundred people killed in the tree Lanka attacks over the weekend. And we know it started at eight forty five AM. This is Easter Sunday morning bombs tearing apart three separate churches three separate hotels. It was another explosion at a housing complex US embassy confirmed at least four US citizens killed out of the nearly three hundred Sri Lankan police now have twenty four suspects in custody appears that they have carried out suicide bombs, but on top of that and the twenty four people in custody police said they discovered eighty-seven detonators apparently abandoned at a private bus stand in the capital, and the government has ordered round the clock security at all churches, we know no claim of responsibility, Wall Street Journal points out and by the way, whenever you see multiple attack. It has the fingerprint of Islamic militants. They point to Sri Lanka points to Islamic militants in this Easter bombing attack themselves, and we do have apparently some information that would support or suggest an international network is involved in this and officials suggesting that there was some advanced knowledge of terror plot in Sri Lanka that intelligence may have ignored. Why I don't know. Anyway, it is just devastating. And yeah, this is our fight. It's always going to be our fight. Unfortunately for the entire world. That's the US that beats back fascism and communism and Nazism and imperial Japan. And now radical Islamist that want to kill innocent people. We've seen it happen in this country too often three thousand people nine eleven we had many attacks warning us beforehand and the embassy bombings in Kenya. Tanzania people forget about it the USS Cole. The first Trade Center bombing all is the lead up to nine eleven two thousand and one. And remember the nine eleven reports said they were at war with us. We were not at war with them. We didn't take it seriously enough. Anyway, joining us Patrick pool, he is the national security correspondent for PJ media. Matthew Hyman is with us senior fellow associate director for global studies at the national Security Institute at George George Mason university's Anthony Scalia law school. Thank you both Patrick. Let's start with the latest and what we know as we're pretty convinced of who's responsible for this. But the number of church bombings around the globe. Especially Christian churches, we had the mosque incident new New Zealand, but the number of Christian churches astronomical at this point. Yes. Sean, and in fact, synagogues then you might add to. Yeah. Because we have Easter coming up this coming weekend. They follow a week behind this year and the complex docs in Egypt, which is the largest population of Christians in the Middle East half, the Christians live in Egypt's and just two years ago. They suffered a two suicide bombings churches, including one pardoning of pope Todd rose, the head of the Coptic church on Sunday. So there's a lot of concern about something happened in Egypt were, you know, in Syria. Where's the the eastern orthodox churches are coming up on Easter, and Sean it's remarkable. How Riddick this bombing was, but it could have been worse because we found out that a six foot height bomb. Had been discovered unexploded at the airport. And then the swooning they were defusing a bomb inside a van parked outside a church in Colombo and the bomb exploded say diffusion, no one was injured. But this could have been even worse than what it is. Well, that's even more chilling. Yeah. I mean, the bus stop and in particular, Matthew, let's get your take on it. Well, I think this also points out as you noted in your lead up to the story on the dysfunction that may well exist in the rely on government in terms of sharing intelligence and information between intelligence organizations police organizations and other security groups because as you noted the news reports discuss this intelligence being available to those folks over a week ago two weeks ago, and it doesn't look like much action was taken. And so, you know, obviously, a very unfortunate circumstance, especially when you have this, many deaths and. As many injuries as a result. I think the other thing that comes out of story is there given that they are pointing to this organization which is called national throw each of which is apparently a local radical Islamist organization in Sri Lanka. There's a strong sense that either Al Qaeda or Islamic state must be connected to because the scale and sophistication of these attacks is quite remarkable to pull off, you know, multiple sites coordinated tax. You know, it takes a certain amount of organization and logistics. And I know you've been monitoring the attacks on on churches and synagogues around the world, and that seems like exponentially now in the last year and a half or so these attacks have gone way up. Yeah. I think, unfortunately, we're in the cycle where houses of worship, whether you're talking about the horrible attacks against the mosques in Christ's church Zealand or the attacks against Christian and Catholic churches around the world that seems to be the method. Of attack right now. And it's a it's a horrific circumstance. And I know Patrick you was well, you this is what you do you've been following it. How how much is grown? Well. Yeah. I mean, we've seen these attacks during Christian holidays going back to twenty twelve and Boko haram in year ya when when the Obama administration told congress that, you know, this this isn't a religious inspired violence when they're bombing churches on Easter and we've seen it in my geria-, Kenya, Pakistan, Egypt Philippines, a whole series of these bombings and one of the important things. And I'm sure that investigators internationally not just in Sri Lanka are looking at is that this group this national he'd Jim odds also included as we you. And I've talked about previously this group included. Isis dies would return from Syria. And and in fact, one of the guys was all on scene. Who's been identified? He had a active for the book account where he was hosting pro ISIS literature, literally for years, which goes to the whole intelligence failure question, which they're going to have to answer. Well, we we all get that. And I guess, you know, we've had this happen before. But from my understanding is you know, we we have intelligence sharing again, even with countries, maybe we weren't as closely aligned with over the years. Like we've never had before the sharing of intelligence supposedly we were to fix the intelligence in our country. I still can't for the life of me Patrick understand thirty years of the ability of hackers to get into our government business, and it still happens. We haven't built a defense strong enough yet to prevent it that to me is a huge national security risk. But I it's just sounds too much like nine eleven it's like they're at war with us. They're doing all these things, and we're not or maybe it says that we have to get it. Right. Every time and it's hard. Well, one one other thing that we've talked about previously are these long series of known wolf attacks. I mean in virtually all these international terrorism incidents, you see that long had most of these individuals on their radar beforehand. And and no one's really really do address that issue even here in the United States that law enforcement gets this information and the ability to to process, it's individual to accurately gauge the level. Slits? He's just been consistently bad across the board. Well, I mean, I guess Matthew. You would think like, for example, we talk about the ISIS caliphate. I mean all of that land that they had taken in serious gone. It's they have been literally shoved into the ground and a lot of it took a lot of a lot of intelligence and a lot of bombs to take out those people that were responsible. We went right back to the first town that they had captured, and we we moved them out. They're gone or dead. And it seems worldwide these networks still keep popping up, and or you have the lone wolf syndrome. But in this case, it seems like a lot of sophisticated plotting, scheming and planning went on here. Well, it certainly appears that way. And and I think that the way you just articulated what happened with the geography in Syria, and in western Iran is right in the sense of Islamic state doesn't control that geography and the people that control that are either gone or they're dead. Now, the people that are gone have either returned home, or they're still, you know, in spider hole, hanging out inspiring others to gauge acts and creating networks that allow these acts to come to fruition. And so that's the problem is the ideology is still around. There are people that still adhere to this view of the world and willing to support local organizations like the one in Sri Lanka in terms of pulling out these attacks, which means our intelligence functions have to be as as you noted almost perfect in terms of stopping every one of these and that's a tough task. Oh, listen. It's like, you know, after nine eleven we have to be right. Every time. They obviously, you know, they just have to, you know, get that one chance, you know, Patrick, go back to nine eleven and go back to post nine eleven go back to I know we had a big debate in the country over of enhanced interrogation techniques. People think everybody was waterboarded. In fact, there are only three people one of them was Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and one of the great discoveries was that even though bin Laden is evil as he was wasn't stupid. And by that we learned about the courier that he didn't use any internet. He didn't use any computers of any kind. He he communicated only through that Currier, we got to the courier we found bin Laden. Well, Sean going back even further to the Afghan. She hod where you had the so called air but asking showing up in. After the conflict is they ended up basically, creating the international network. We now known knows al-qaeda. Well, I think we're going to see the same function now with the demise of of ISIS in Syria in a wack is a lot of these guys have just kind of right out. All we have ISIS guys that the FBI knows about already back in the United States. Same thing in Canada, you know, and and a lot of western countries are grappling with how do we handle these guys? Because in a lot of cases, you don't have the evidence to be able to convict him. In course, what do you do? And you know, there's in fact, there was a report in the Sunday Times yesterday in the UK where they've discovered information about guys who are ISIS dice removing people in and out of Europe. So this is going to be an ongoing pun, and these places of worship are going to continue. To be perceived by ISIS targets of opportunity, and you know, I it's it's going to be as serious ongoing problem, then I agree with stay right there. And we'll wrap things up and what the what we think are likely outcome is in all this, and whether we're going to get to the bottom of this coordination terrible tax nearly three hundred killed over the weekend church bombings, hotel bombings in Sri Lanka, more, Patrick pool. And Matthew Hyman as we continue on the other side. Then we'll get your calls in at the bottom of the half hour. Hey, listen, I've known these folks at SimpliSafe a longtime. They only had six employees. Now, they have over a thousand there. They have taken the home security business and turned it upside down everything that was done wrong. They now have a complete system that does it right. In other words, you don't pay for installation your walls are in chipped apart. Everything that they have done, technology wise. That's why they're now. Number one. In the industry. They're seen it editor's choice wire cutters. Top pick the people that know, and you don't have to sign a contract with big monthly fees that you can never get out of you don't pay for installation.

"Report in a moment. But there was a terrible series of terror attacks and tree Lanka on this Easter morning. The coordinated attacks across the country, targeted Christian worshippers, celebrating Easter and churches and high end hotels that are frequented by foreign tourists. The death toll is going to number into the hundreds the attacks a long period of peace in Sri Lanka, which has a dirt decades of civil war which had come to an end or supposedly turning now to the Miller report. And so many ways the rollout reflected the divisions in this country. It was a tale of two reports or more accurately to tales of report with a divided public free to choose its version of the truth on one hand. There was President Trump and his supporters high fiving celebrating with the help of the president's new attorney general who framed the report before its release as an exoneration of frustrated and angry president on the other hand. There was the report itself which had a four hundred and forty eight pages, including many reductions. Is a far cry from the president's favourite misleading. No collusion. No, obstruction soundbite. It describes the campaign eager to accept the help of a hostile foreign power Russia and a president who later worked furiously to obstruct the investigation. In fact, Mr. Trump may have been saved from my formal obstruction charge by aides who saved him from himself. The Muller team writes the president's efforts to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful. But that is largely because the persons who surrounded the president declined to carry out orders or seem to his request. Then there is this now I comic closing sentence. Well, this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime it also does not exonorated them. It's a line the kids immunization to both sides of the Trump divide, but one that is likely to cloud the president's reputation whether or not he is reelected. We need the whole report, including the underlying documents unredacted the four hundred and forty eight page report. Details aggressive and ultimately successful attempt by Vladimir Putin to interfere in the two thousand sixteen election and destabilize the United States. I have nothing to do with Russia. I know from having been on the campaign. There was no contact with Russians no discussion with Russian, but the report lays out scores of links between the Russian government and the Trump campaign among them campaign chairman Paul Manafort regularly shared polling data over the Russian intelligence agent and received a peace plan for Ukraine that Manafort acknowledge to the special counsel's office was a backdoor way for Russia to control part of eastern, Ukraine. Then there are the ties between the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks WikiLeaks I love WikiLeaks. The report details advance knowledge of WikiLeaks releases by members of the campaign, including the president who is described as taking a phone call and then telling deputy campaign. Rick gates that more releases of damaging information would becoming there was the June twenty sixteen Trump Tower meeting when Donald Trump junior, Jared, Kushner and Paul Manafort met with Russians to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. And remember this. It'd be clear Mr. Trump has no financial.

"Going forward thera a few things. Facebook can do better to serve its users in countries like Sri Lanka face knows that it needs to dedicate more resources to local language operations. Sri Lanka has two main languages Sinhala and Tamil and until recently, Facebook had very few people working in these languages. So the company couldn't tell if a post was full of hate speech. For example, moving in most people communicate in living Mitch, and I won't. If a language and Facebook has a huge game, they don't. They can't understand the content even though this feature whatever. Shallow says that it's easy to create fake counts. That's because people in Sri Lanka often have multiple names. So a Facebook asks for verification. One ID could cover several accounts. He also explained how easy it was to buy popular pages from others. He showed me a couple marketplaces that were active, but faced with executives are investing in learning more about Sri Lanka goes the first country in the woods in all its markets that he does owns that it's going to proactively takedown misinformed that isolation. China's now available for civil society to report content. Fake news isn't against the rules on Facebook, but the company recently made a policy banning fake news that incites violence. So it took down those pages. We talked about that were related to the sterilization pills in food could. So if I think has undertaken views orbits content, curation motivation, oversight capabilities and Capella.

He did say that he's been in contact with the company about related masses in recent months.

I mean, one of the things that really struck me as we were working on this episode together is Facebook wasn't better prepared for the fact that politicians might try to use the platform to spread propaganda. One thing that's been clear overall about Facebook in the past years is that they kind of just focused on growth. They just wanted to get bigger and do whatever it took to get people connected to Facebook. Their mission is connecting the world and didn't quite think at all about the consequences of that connection or really the strategy to achieve it.
