"Colorado over the weekend democratic governor jared polis signed into law three pieces of gun legislation that will expand background checks for purchases and create an office solely aimed at gun. Violence prevention the slightest latest action out of colorado is up against a wave of resolutions in laws throughout the country. That defy federal gun laws. More than four hundred counties in twenty states have signed what is called second amendment sanctuary legislation to counter perceived encroachments on gun rights missouri governor. Mike parson is the latest republican governor to sign this kind of legislation and the governor has already gotten a stiff of justice in the form of a letter warning that missouri does not have the authority to throw out federal law for more. Let's bring an anders walker constitutional law professor at saint louis university anders. Thank you for joining us. Thanks for having me. Thank you for being here. So what exactly is in this missouri law so this law is at the moment a bit of political theater. The law says that if the federal government tries to regulate arms anyone who cooperates with the federal government locally could be fined which is a little outrageous. We should note that this Second amendment sanctuary movement is using language. That was made popular during the trump presidency. Sanctuary cities have said they wouldn't assists the federal government's crackdown on undocumented. Immigration for instance. Our so called got actuaries using that same legal president the difference here is that anyone incorporates. The federal government missouri will be fine if you remember these sanctuary cities for immigration. The threat there was that the president would cut funding to those cities. And so no one was gonna find anybody if they cooperated with the feds. But for the state to then penalize people who do follow federal law that violates the supremacy clause. Okay so i'm gonna use the example of legalizing marijuana even though it remains a controlled substance on a federal level missouri and other states. Say they just won't enforce federal gun laws. Can they get away with that. They can only get away with that so long as the federal government does not require that they enforce federal law. Congress has give. It created an ex exception for medical marijuana but for recreational use. It is a very unstable situation and the federal government could at any point move then and the same. Holds true for guns okay. We'll all of this have any practical effect in missouri. for instance. Could we see more people. Purchase guns who shouldn't be able to well presently. It really has very little effect because the gun. Laws missouri our basically sympathetic to the federal gun laws to the federal government controls automatic weapons explosives military grade weapons if anyone wants one of those they to actually register gained permission from the alcohol tobacco firearms. I mean the fact is nationwide. Gun control efforts have been stalled for decades. Why are states moving on this now. Well i think conservatives are on the back foot. I think they feel like they are soon to be a minority and we're seeing them actively try to shore up gun rights free exercise of religion abortion. I think there's some real concern now on the conservative side that the political winds are shifting against them and they're going to have to double down ironically on civil rights as a political minority right. Do you think that the biden administration will will make more moves to crack down on these sanctuaries. I think joe biden. So far has been very savvy in not pushing issues that are going to generate an explosive backlash. However i think he has made it clear he does want to go after things like they are fifteen high volume magazines and if missouri tries to say oh you can't regulate fully automatic weapons then the federal government's going to show up and they're gonna throughout the law so i think the mid term elections are key. We'll probably see something happened after that. If the democrats can increase their majority just a little bit then they really are going to have quite a bit of momentum to affect some change. And i think maybe re up the assault weapons ban. What message does this bill. Send even if it is almost purely symbolic well. I personally think it sends a a losing message. Which is we're going to double down on opening up gun sales to everybody and anybody. I don't think it's a good look for the nra. I don't think it's even a good look for gun owners. It just makes them look irresponsible. However in the game of cultural politics it is an issue that republicans run on when they are actually relying more and more on working class white voters especially in missouri. Josh hawley roy. Blunt don't have a lot of support among financial elites in this state they're really doubling down on rural white voters and they don't have much to offer the by way of jobs or education or opportunities ultimately. I don't think this is going to be a way forward for that. That's anders walker constitutional law professor at saint louis university. Thank you so much. Thank you local.

"twenty states" Discussed on Gun Talk
"Anti gun. case in point our next guest. David demanded joins us. He's a professor of sociology. At wake forest university in winston salem north carolina and has new book out which is very cool concealed carry revolution expanding the right to bear arms in america. David united joins us right now. David thank you for being here man. Tom it's an honor to be on your show. Well i appreciate it. Been going through your book here and for those who would. It's a very small book for easy to go through kind. Give him the overview. what's it about. I guess the real question is why did you do this. Yeah well i'm. I'm not a historian or legal scholar. But i've been trying to understand the american gun culture for the last decade or so and one of the things i really wanted to do was to have a sort of interesting and reliable history of the development of america's concealed carry laws and and where they stand today and there's just nothing really out there i mean there's a lot of long books. There's a lot of things buried and you know little libraries here and there. And so i thought one thing i could do as a as an appetizer for my bigger book. And i'm working on is to just put out a short Concise reliable overview of america's concealed carry laws and i think The general trend is people know has been towards the liberalization of those laws. So the you know as we sit here today. It's so much easier for an average citizen to legally carry a concealed weapon in public than it was and in the nineteenth century. Inching you say in here said. The nineteenth century was the century of concealed weapons prohibitions. The twentieth century was the century of concealed weapons permits with may issue permits systems dominating early and then giving away to the issue later and then of course i'm looking at it. they can. And so where. The twenty first century be a time of constitutional our permit louis carey but definitely you know we have. I submitted the manuscript for to the publisher in december. And already since that time. I need to put out a second edition. Because five more states have gone permit lists and if we count vermont. We're going to have with texas more states. That are permanent. Carry than are shall issue and taking together. That's forty one forty one out of fifty states so this is the definitely the dominant trend. And i think you know with the corlett case pending in the supreme court We may see those may issue states being forced more into a shall issue position. So the the liberalisation. I think One of the things. And i've been doing this show for twenty six years. Been writing about guns and gun rights fifty years as i reported on and watch the movement and the concealed carry movement when florida being probably the first most recognized state to start with concealed carry permits and moving across the country. It was like the same story the same fight. Same arguments being heard every time with the anti saying well you know this will result in blood in the street. Yada yada yada. And i say no. It won't and even after we had ten states in twenty states and thirty states that have done it without any ill effects. They were still using the same arguments. I think we see that same thing is shall issue states go permit lewis or even states that have gone permit lewis as they scaled back Their training requirements. Ohio did in south carolina. Did you know that. There's this constant fear that the blood will be running in the streets as legal Concealed carriers take advantage of that that right And yet. I know of no data and i tried to keep up with that Research as much as i can. But i i know of no data that shows that states that are permit lewis. Have any more problems with people can carry concealed than states that are shall issue or that showers. You states have more problems than may issue states. you know every once in a while. We'll we'll hear of something knucklehead doing something stupid and they happen to be carrying a concealed weapon but the fact that those things become news or suggestive of how rare they are in fact and you know most people who are legally carrying concealed weapons or doing so perfectly within the bounds of the law. And also of ethics. I think do you have an idea. I don't know. I've lost track of what the number is how many people in the us have permits for concealed carry. Now i think the last report that John la put out which are the best numbers out. There said around twenty million You know the number increases every year but you know at the same time if if it weren't for permanent carry that may increase even more so we you know it's i always say they're at least twenty million people who are legally Carrying concealed weapons. Plus how many people are doing so in the in the permit states. Well not only that. When i think about it if you include the permanent states you could possibly have fifty or one hundred million people who can legally carry a concealed loaded firearm without a permit the number would be total population of all the states or adult population without question. I think that you know i. I use the term that a friend of mine gave me for as alaska carry for for list carried other than vermont because all those states you do have the option to get a concealed carry permit even though not required to have one and i think there's some some good incentives to do so like Reciprocity with other states right As well as some states allow you to carry and more places if you do have a permit and so i think permits may never go away and i don't see permanent kerry sort of removing some of those incentives You know we're a long way from from concealed carry. Reciprocity i'm afraid but That that that would that would certainly make the the permitting system more attractive for people who are interested in this. It's called the concealed. Carry revolution by david yemeni. How can get a copy of this. That's it's on amazon right now. A printed copy. I've been struggling a little with the publisher to get the kindle version out there.

State Trends In Employer Premiums And Deductibles
"Recently. The commonwealth fund examined the extent to which people with moderate incomes in employer health plans face high premium and deductible costs relative to their income to discuss the results of the study and the implications for policy holders going forward. I'm joined by sarah collins vice president of healthcare coverage and access at the commonwealth fund. Sarah welcome to the show. Thank you so much. Mike so sarah watches. Start out by telling us why you initiated this study and what you're looking for well employer health coverage is really the backbone of the us health insurance system more than half the population of the united states about one hundred sixty million people get their coverage through an employer so the purpose of this study was to look at trends over the last decade and the amount that workers and their families are paying for their employer health insurance and the size of their deductibles in all fifty states and the district of columbia and we compare these worker cost to median income in each state in order to get a sense of the economic burden of these costs on middle income families. And how did you go about conducting the research. We've been conducting the study nearly every year since twenty ten Using the latest data From what's known as the insurance components. Federal medical medical expenditure panel survey This survey is the most comprehensive national survey of use employer. health plans In twenty nineteen Which is the latest year of data. That's available This survey interviewed more than forty thousand business. Establishments With an overall response rate of fifty nine percent we computed from the survey reported statewide average premiums so we take the premiums reported by business establishments and average them across the state and we do the same deductibles and then we compared those averages to the median income in each state so this provides a rough measure of the affordability protectiveness of employer coverage and allows us to track changes over time. And what did you find after you conducted this study. We found that premium contributions and deductibles in employer plans took up a growing share of workers incomes over the past decade those costs together so premium contributions and deductibles accounted for eleven point five percent of meeting median household income and twenty nineteen. This is up from about nine point one percent a decade earlier the this cost burden in employer. Health plans has increased over the past decade because cumulative growth in median income has been slower growth in premium contributions deductibles. We also find that these contributions premium contributions deductibles as well as needing income vary considerably across the country the total cost of premiums and deductibles across single and family policies ranged from a low of about fifty. Five hundred dollars in hawaii. Too high of more than eighty five hundred dollars in nine states. Meet an income ranged from a low of about forty nine thousand and mississippi in mexico too highs around ninety thousand or more in massachusetts minnesota new hampshire new jersey what workers pay towards their premiums and deductibles comprised about ten percent or more of median income in thirty seven states in two thousand ten and twenty nineteen. This is up from about ten states Twenty ten in nine states workers combined costs were fourteen percent or more of meeting income workers in new mexico and louisiana face the highest potential cost relative to their income more than seventeen percent and we actually also find that people living in states that have lower meeting incomes like new mexico are doubly burdened on average workers in states where the median income is lower than the national median income face higher premiums and deductibles compared to people in states with higher median incomes. Also find that. Many people employer plans across. The country are insured Because their deductibles are high. Relative to their incomes tacoma fund has found that insured people who have high out of pocket costs and deductibles relative to their income are more likely to face problems accessing care or paying medical bills Than people who are not under insured. We've we've defined someone with insurance as under insert at their health plans. Deductibles deductible equals about five percent or more of income or if they're out of pocket costs reached similar thresholds in this study across the country. Many people employer plans are underinsured by this measure average deductibles relative median income or five percent or more in twenty states and ranged as high as seven percent in mexico.

What's happening with minimum wage increases
"The minimum wage is something that i had to walk up to see what the federal minimum wage was. Do you know seven dollars. Twenty five cents an hour. I didn't even know that because it's become increasingly irrelevant as you drive around most urban and suburban areas you'll see signs now hiring and it will say starting at whatever number of dollars per hour and nobody's talking about being at seven dollars twenty five cents an hour the federal minimum wage. The idea of it just see you know was originally about giving people a wage that would keep them out of poverty but in recent years. It has nothing to do with that. It's just a marker that is a minimum theoretical amount per hour was shared with you back in november. You have state after state where citizens given a vote without exception have chosen in states. That allow ballot initiatives to raise the minimum wage and the public consensus is very strongly towards raising the wage and the move is really clear with the whole concept of fifteen dollars. An hour A lot of retailers a lot of grocery sellers going to fifteen an hour as their minimum pay The german fast growing german supermarket chain leader has recently started at fifteen an hour which was a big increase from what they were paying two people and so the marketplace is moving that way state voters are moving that way and do you know that twenty states raise their minimum wages this year and a number of states are doing graduated increases again to that theoretical fifteen dollars an hour. I remember when this all started in my memory. Serves me right. The big push up in the minimum wage started in seatac. If you're familiar with what seatac is Seatac is the name that everybody uses for the airport for seattle. That is mostly towards tacoma but kind of towards seattle and they just call it seatac in the area right there is called seatac and in a move at the time that people said would lead to massive unemployment. there was a big push to a very high minimum wage at seatac and that was really the kick off of what's happened around the country and so it did not lead to any increase in unemployment. The economic theory is it would actually does shift employment of jobs that exist. go away you think about in fast. Food restaurants is shared with you a good ten years ago from traveling overseas in countries that had high their their equivalent of a high minimum wage. You could not order from a human you could only order from a computer screen a touchscreen and as minimum wages go up. You see that happen but even with that fast food outfits are always looking for new workers because of turnover so it shifts the nature of work. And i historically have been opposed to Government impose minimum wages and. I realized a while back that. This was an area that i was wrong on and we were putting people in a position where they could not deal with. Life's daily expenses and having a higher. minimum wage. was something that my classic libertarian. Kind of thinking. I was just wrong and so this is a move that will continue. It puts pressure on employers a lot of job classifications as they see their labor costs rise. No doubt that puts pressure on the profitability of a lot of small businesses. It is something that is clearly going to happen. Is voters in red states and blue states unanimously given a choice a chance vote in increases in their state minimum wages. And i think there's a really good chance in twenty one that will see an increase in the federal minimum. Wage adopted that will phase in over a number of
Why SMS Marketing Works
"Is the founder of converse smart. He is served in the us army. He's a smart guy. He knows more about sms. Marketing than anyone else. I know and so what i did. I posted on my facebook group. And i said hey. What are your questions. And i got a whole list. Great questions here to ask him. But the thing i want to start with ari is the the fudd around. Sms fear uncertainty in doubt. People are well merchants anyway. Seem terrified of s marketing. But like don't think twice about sending an email blast to got an email list right at least based on the sheer number of newsletters. I know i didn't sign up for but still somehow am on but s. They're afraid of it. So someone The question i want to open with you acuna. Hurry is a gentleman who said. I don't do any sms marketing presently because personally hate it as a consumer. But that's really the only research i've done it. I find it incredibly intrusive and kurt. Gosh this poor man. And so what he that was his. That was a setup. He's tortured by sms. text him. he'd like just wants to die and his name is jeff and his question there is are there any stats tracked about loss of customer finicky. Like fewer repeat orders unsubscribe. It seems like the financial is there in the short term. But i worry about the long term loss of goodwill. Please put this to rest. Yes let's do it so first of all. Thank you for having me on your podcast. Super excited to talk about sms out and this is one of the things that i hear all the time so every time i talked to marketers. Either someone is really pro. S other really against sms. That's kind of what we've seen Talking to many direct consumer e commerce marketers or people have received calls from telemarketers. Sean sell them something. So people are very reluctant to give away their phone numbers so a lot of the time as more of like a personal thing where people have had that experience like. We've all experienced. As i remember when i was in new york and got like a puppy like ten different messages from president trump. I never remember ever opting in for any presidential campaigns ever. But i guy like ten for once So this is probably like people who have experienced things like this and they never like ogden. So it's like okay like them. Doing it now feels like they're kind of like doing what the spammers are doing. Like you said it's the same people who would go and email a full list That probably opt in. That are still scared of sending those messages out via texts. But the thing is we've done the research we have tons of data on it We've lunch twenty twenty state of text marketing report. Move lot of information and what we found out is that there is no reason for someone to be scared of texts marketing. And here's why. The average consumer spending more and more time on their mobile device over ninety percent of americans can be reached via text and demographic demographics between ages of eighteen and sixty two prefer text over any other communication method. And if you really think about it when we communicate with friends family coworkers. Use messaging apps. Right and sms is probably one of the primary use and it doesn't matter who it is. Everybody opens or text message like obscene. Like people who have never like open their emails but when it comes to tax they always open every single text message. And that's the first thing that we need to know. That consumers are on that channel and the thing about marketing is that like businesses have to go where the consumer is at so. It's the same thing here where personally you might think that may not work or it's invading and no one should ever sign up for it but the data shows otherwise the consumer are signing up to get these text messages. They're receiving text messages. From presidential campaigns two factor authentication order delivery confirmations customer service

Caleb Barlow Discusses Healthcare Industry Ransomware Attacks and Measures to Prevent Cybercrimes
"Welcome to the healthcare policy podcast on the host David Intra Cosso. This podcast discussed cybercrime or ransomware attacks against hospitals and other healthcare providers with Collab- Barlow CEO Synergistic Tech this barlow welcome to the program. Hey pleasure to be here. David. Mr Biles vile is, of course, posted on the podcast website. On background computer or cybercrimes against healthcare providers, more of a hospitals, disabled computer networks holding them for ransom. Frequently for Bitcoin fee, the tax have been prevalent since at least two, thousand and ten. This past month however, universal health services with over four hundred locations. Over in the US suffered a cyber attack disabling it's company wide computer network causing some it's hospitals to revert to pen and paper recordkeeping also last month the first known death. Resulted from a ransomware attack in Germany when a patient did not survive transferred to another hospital. Though a twenty nineteen hhs report found between twenty, twelve and sixteen. Hospital deaths increased after ransomware attacks. Earlier this month covid nineteen VACs. A covid nineteen vaccine trial was delayed by more attack or at least one. Likely. The most costly ransomware attack was to the UK's national health service in seventeen that amounted to an estimated one, hundred, twenty, million in it costs and lost productivity. ransomware attacks are on the increase especially amongst small hospitals, particularly vulnerable to phishing attacks, lasting upwards of tumor weeks because of their lean or inadequate security support. As Josephine Wolf noted in October Seventeen New York Times editorial quote Unquote cybersecurity shortcomings in the healthcare sector needs to be addressed now. More than ever when medical care is increasingly being offered via remote online formats. In twenty twenty states introduced more than two hundred and eighty cybersecurity related bills enacting several related to task forces or commissions training. Cybersecurity insurance in criminal. Penalties. The US Senate and House passed seven cybersecurity bills whoever not specifically addressed the healthcare industry and none became law. With me again and discuss healthcare cybersecurity is synergise texts, CEO. COLLAB- Barlow so club with that. As background LET'S START WITH A. Primer Info. I've read these ransomware products. in part are. Titled or named Wannacry Laki Win Plock encrypt locker. Are some these known ransomware product. So my question is, how do these encrypt clinical data and to what effect? So. So basically, what happening if you look at ransomware incident is a you know a narrow will gets access to a network and that could be as simple as grabbing somebody's credentials. You know maybe you were on a retail site, use the same credentials you used at work that retail site was compromised and There are many locations on the dark web that will. Sell compromised credentials or could have been through a phishing attack once the bad guy is into the network then there's two primary things that they're looking to do first is to move laterally. They WANNA get as much access across the networks they can, and there are a variety of tools that they'll deploy. They will actually help them harvest additional credentials once they've got a beachhead. On, the network in addition to harvesting new credentials and kind of moving lateral or what we call lateral movement. The other thing that are going to do is to try to elevate their privilege. So going from maybe an administrator or you know a nurse and triage and maybe getting access to their credentials, they're going to try to work their way up to a network. Administrator or someone that controls access to the whole domain once they've been able to get in and move their tentacles around the organization, then they're going to deploy their payroll, which is one of several of the tools that you mentioned will allow them to then lock things up effectively what these tools, our cryptographic tools, and they basically take the entire hard drive at the device. Scramble it and lock it up with a cryptographic key. What we've seen of late is the bad guys oftentimes insert a new step just before scrambling data, locking it all up in that the exfiltrated lot of it, and they're using that to increase their chances of getting paid by potentially threatening to. The organization by releasing that data if they don't pay ransom. Okay. Thank you so. I in my reading. It's uncertain Saul. Asked you this question? What's your understanding? How frequently? Is this occurring in the healthcare sector? Oh, it's every day I mean literally every single day because you got to remember what you read about in the news is only a very small fraction of what's actually going on even though technically speaking ransomware incident is as far as I'm concerned reportable incident because you gotta remember if the bad guy had enough access to walk up your data, they had the same level of access needed to read the data and they actually in many cases had the same level access needed to change the data. So the problem is you've actually lost control of that system when you've had a ransomware incident. I. So that was that was a question I did have. Other than. Possibly, making this data public and you know healthcare data's is is is confidential proprietary, of course. What do they typically do this data other than hold it hostage? Well remember, this is a organized crime. It is a volume organization you're dealing with a human on the other end and that human is organized right. You're not the only target, their targeting dozens of organizations at the same time in many cases are teams of thirty individuals and you know there's a breakdown on that team there's a project manager of a boss. There's people that are responsible for getting access. There's people that are responsible for moving laterally people responsible for elevating credentials and people are responsible for negotiating. Once walked up system

Over in the US suffered a cyber attack disabling it's company wide computer network causing some it's hospitals to revert to pen and paper recordkeeping also last month the first known death. Resulted from a ransomware attack in Germany when a patient did not survive transferred to another hospital. Though a twenty nineteen hhs report found between twenty, twelve and sixteen. Hospital deaths increased after ransomware attacks. Earlier this month covid nineteen VACs. A covid nineteen vaccine trial was delayed by more attack or at least one. Likely. The most costly ransomware attack was to the UK's national health service in seventeen that amounted to an estimated one, hundred, twenty, million in it costs and lost productivity. ransomware attacks are on the increase especially amongst small hospitals, particularly vulnerable to phishing attacks, lasting upwards of tumor weeks because of their lean or inadequate security support. As Josephine Wolf noted in October Seventeen New York Times editorial quote Unquote cybersecurity shortcomings in the healthcare sector needs to be addressed now. More than ever when medical care is increasingly being offered via remote online formats. In twenty twenty states introduced more than two hundred and eighty cybersecurity related bills enacting several related to task forces or commissions training. Cybersecurity insurance in criminal. Penalties. The US Senate and House passed seven cybersecurity bills whoever not specifically addressed the healthcare industry and none became law. With me again and discuss healthcare cybersecurity is synergise texts, CEO. COLLAB- Barlow so club with that. As background LET'S START WITH A. Primer Info. I've read these ransomware products. in part are. Titled or named Wannacry Laki Win Plock encrypt locker. Are some these known ransomware product. So my question is, how do these encrypt clinical data and to what effect? So. So basically, what happening if you look at ransomware incident is a you know a narrow will gets access to a network and that could be as simple as grabbing somebody's credentials. You know maybe you were on a retail site, use the same credentials you used at work that retail site was compromised and There are many locations on the dark web that will. Sell compromised credentials or could have been through a phishing attack once the bad guy is into the network then there's two primary things that they're looking to do first is to move laterally. They WANNA get as much access across the networks they can, and there are a variety of tools that they'll deploy. They will actually help them harvest additional credentials once they've got a beachhead. On, the network in addition to harvesting new credentials and kind of moving lateral or what we call lateral movement. The other thing that are going to do is to try to elevate their privilege. So going from maybe an administrator or you know a nurse and triage and maybe getting access to their credentials, they're going to try to work their way up to a network. Administrator or someone that controls access to the whole domain once they've been able to get in and move their tentacles around the organization, then they're going to deploy their payroll, which is one of several of the tools that you mentioned will allow them to then lock things up effectively what these tools, our cryptographic tools, and they basically take the entire hard drive at the device. Scramble it and lock it up with a cryptographic key. What we've seen of late is the bad guys oftentimes insert a new step just before scrambling data, locking it all up in that the exfiltrated lot of it, and they're using that to increase their chances of getting paid by potentially threatening to. The organization by releasing that data if they don't pay ransom.
What is online service provider?
"Ages ago Chris and I did an episode about online service providers. But this time we want to specifically look at prodigy partly because it was one of the earliest in fact, depending upon whom you ask the earliest online service provider. Now, online service providers are different from Internet service providers, right? So I'M GONNA. Blow your minds out their kids. So you youngins out there there was a time when we did not all have access to the Internet. It was a terrifying time dinosaurs roamed the earth. Occasionally, you would go camping and an enormous guy in a hockey mask would chase you around the eighties tough y'all I actually do remember that time dimly I mean I I was you know not necessarily eating all food yet and I could barely read but I do in fact, recall a time before the Internet I grew up in that time and I bear the scars to this day. Also I don't read that much currently. But at any rate nowhere, we're talking about a time where. The computer revolution had really taken hold of personal computers had already become a a rising trend it still was. Kind of a rarity to find someone who owned a personal computer it wasn't like Pc's everywhere certainly not now but they were certainly getting very popular in the mid eighty s and more and more people were adopting them as the price was becoming more affordable for the average household rather than for hobbyists only right. Right. So those those bleeding edge technology adopters who somehow have the jobs that allow them to to adult their obsession with technology they had already gone through the first wave, and now it was trickling down to everybody else arrayed. We're we're talking about the kind of the two eighty, six sort of days prodigy started. Up So. During those times your computers. Early computers were really especially for personal computers were just self contained devices right? It was whatever you software you had to run on that machine and that was pretty much it. which would put on the machine with fancy fancy, a five and a quarter inch floppy desk. Wouldn't necessarily even have a hard drive you might just run it directly from the disks. So in other words, disc was popped out that was it. You didn't have an program anymore Yay. Operating system although you might not even call it that anyway. Eventually. you start seeing things like modems where you can do things like connect to a local bulletin board system or B s this was usually something that was hyper local as something that would be running the same city that you live in because in order to connect to most BBS, as you had to dial a specific number and usually it was a, it was a local number, a local number you could dial into a bbs that's run in a state. You know twenty states away long distance charges at the time were also such that that that it would have been incredibly cost prohibitive. Yeah. Anyone any kid. Who experimented with connected to BBS is might find out rapidly from his parents or her parents that. It was not the best idea to do that without parental. Agreement beforehand because you can rack up huge bills I, mean this is the era where long distance charges were a real thing I know that a lot of people today aren't even they don't. That's not something they even think about because. In most cases, you don't have a long distance charge anymore about once a month I marvel at the incredible present, and the fact that I can call people all over the country without having any without worrying about Oh. We talked for five minutes. This is going to cost me twenty bucks or whatever and they have not said anything value. So so at any rate at this time, that was pretty much it, and then there became this idea of the online service provider away for companies to create services that would open up brand new opportunities for consumers, and it was before the Internet had rolled out to being something that the general public could access. So be sure but people were looking for a way to provide service to to consumers who wanted to communicate and be to companies who wanted to sell more stuff give give companies an outlet to sell more stuff. Right. So this was a this was. The idea like instead of instead of the Internet the Internet, it's the network of networks right? It's all these different computers that are connected together and lots of different types of communication goes across the Internet from email to file transfers to web traffic. All of that stuff is going on across the Internet an online service provider is more like a very small network. It's not a network of networks is a network in which you use your computer to dial into a host computer and the host computer serves up all the information on it that it has. So in other words, instead of having access to everything in the world, you just have access to whatever the host computer has on it. And online service providers did this in different ways.

Dr. Charles Binkley Discusses Medical Ethics in the Time of COVID-19
"Welcome to the healthcare policy podcast on the host. David Intra. Cosso with me today discussed the nation's response, the ongoing Kobe nineteen, pandemic and context of healthcare ethics. Is Dr. Charles, Brinkley the director of bioethics at the Santa Clara University's or coolest center for Applied Ethics. Dr Bank welcome to the program. Thank you, David. It's really good to be with you today I have to say dark billy Bigley I particularly appreciate time since of course, California's once again. Experiencing another unprecedented wildfire season. So thank you. For making. Absolutely it's a real privilege to be on the show Dr. Bentley's vile is, of course, posted on the podcast website. On background, our nation's response to the ongoing covid nineteen pandemic has been I would characterize as disastrous. For example, as has been widely reported approximately one third of all Kobe. Nineteen related deaths have been among Nursing Home Facility residents. African Americans have been more than twice as likely as non Hispanic whites to die of covid nineteen complications. Inadequately protected healthcare providers. Now conveniently turned heroes in a war against Covid as if the virus will one day surrender. Defeated, have been required to work in lethal environments as for Service Workers Moreover, minorities instead of recognizing their do a livable wage. Health Insurance and or sick leave. We term essential workers and give them a hand. Clap. Has for the federal government's response to the president's sensitivity apparently goes so far as his stating, it is what it is. That the dictionary defines a business phrase that can be literally translated as and pardon my French fuck it. As for the Congress's response seventy, five percent of direct and indirect cares act money's went to corporations any forthcoming or additional federal response must include for the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's prerequisite covid related legal immunity protection, or legislation consistent with what over twenty states have adopted to date. Are Spas the pandemic in some brings to light the chasm that continues to exist between medical ethics. Requires provider to support the betterment of public health and a responsibility to seek positive forms that are in the best injures of patience. And how we deliver health care that is substantially profit motive dominated. I'll add in my nearly twenty five years doing healthcare policy work in DC. I never wants to tenor meeting or participated in a conversation with the speaker disgust or made reference to, for example, John Rawls veil of big nurturance or tick him Olam. With Megan discuss the woeful state of healthcare ethics in the time of Covid is again Dr Charles Bentley. So with that as a somewhat lengthy introduction Dr Brinkley. Limb in assuming, you'd largely agree federal policymakers have to understated done a poor job of living up to their obligations and responding to the pandemic. So my question is in your view what generally accounts for this. David I. Think from a public policy perspective. Many of the issues have become overly politicized. So for instance, things like mask wearing school reopenings, how to reopen the economy have not always been based solely on the best medical or scientific principles but they've been put us is to take, for instance, the initial recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about school reopening those were revised based on the administration's desire to somehow make them more applicable or to open up things more aggressively. So science hasn't always. been the most respected voice in the pandemic Dr. Falcone has emerged as really a hero for what is truth, and so you have to consider the perspective of physicians in making recommendations in a physician or a scientist in general is going to base recommendations on doing good and avoiding harm. That's really the ethical principle of medicine, and so for instance, plan the American Academy of Pediatrics Recommendations for. School reopening is a very child centric perspective as well. You would expect the group of pediatricians to speak from the perspective of children and when you take the balance of school opening on the whole, it's far more advantageous to children for schools to be reopened not only because of the intellectual benefit schools provide but all the other resources of schools provide for children besides the traditional reading writing and arithmetic. Takes Her instance the number of hungry children who rely on schools for nourishment, the number of children but medical problems who rely on schools For their care asthma screening vision dental care. You look at children with disabilities who really are dependent on their schools, not only for learning but also for occupational therapy physical therapy and those students not only are not progressing in minsters they're regressing during the pandemic when they're not in schools, you can't substitute the services that they were offered in person with remote learning and must be heartbreaking to those parents to see their children regress in this time. So really the perspective of the most vulnerable and some ways has come to light. During the pandemic when I think globally about how ethics the affected the pandemic
Virginia Becomes First State to Try Covidwise Pandemic App From Apple, Google
"The first Bluetooth exposure notification APP has launched in Virginia and it's called covert. Wise. The APP uses Bluetooth chirps to detect if you've been in close contact with someone who has tested positive while it's very easy to use or to really be effective in needs widespread adoption. Jeffrey Fowler Tech Columnist at The Washington Post joins us for this useful APP with very little privacy risk. Thanks for joining US Jeffrey. Wanted to talk about this APP out of Virginia, it's called COVID. Wise. It's an exposure notification APP using Bluetooth on your phone. So you might have some other contact tracing APPs with regards to corona virus. One is a Little Different Your Bluetooth sends out pins basically, and if you've come into contact with somebody for more than fifteen minutes and you're within six feet distance, the APP might tell you you've been exposed then you can go get a test all that. Usually we bring you on on the PODCAST Jeff, we're talking about privacy with apps and things like that, and in this case you've kind. Of, run. This thing through many tests and you've kind of come to the conclusion that your privacy really is an at risk and it would actually be a benefit if people were a lot of people downloaded this thing so we can try to keep this thing under control. So Jeff, tell us a little bit about covert wise and the tests you ran through it and what your conclusions were. Nobody was more surprised than me. The big problems that a lot of these APPs and the idea of using our phones to help track exposure to the coronavirus has had is that people frankly just don't trust tech companies and they just don't trust the government and I can't blame you companies have done very little to earn that trust and Edward Snowden taught us all that the government really can't be trusted either. But that said when Google and apple this. Spring got together and said, Hey, they thought that they had figured out a way to make our phones useful for figuring out if we were exposed to some of krona virus I was intrigued because they said they were going to build it from the ground up with privacy in mind. So we finally got the first of these in the US in the state of Virginia Colbert wise and it came out earlier in August and it was there I was like. We gotTA test. We got to see if they really live up to the promises and from everything we've been able to tell so far from our testing I've had thirty five colleagues at the post to live in Virginia and they're all testing for me. We learn two things. First thing we learned is that that doesn't seem to be really much of a privacy risk here these APPs Bluetooth to communicate to phones nearby they don't collect your location they don't. Send information about where you've been a her you've been in contact with to the government. It's actually a pretty clever system looked under the hood as well. Just just to double check they weren't sending out more information than than they claim and they work. That was the first thing. The second thing we learned is we still don't know actually this idea is going to work very well, those thirty five Washington Post colleagues who were testing them none of them got. -cation from this APP over a ten day period. Now, that could be for many reasons. It could be like they were just being really good at social distancing. It means that not many people around them. We're using it or it could mean that there's some problems with the idea that the phones can do this. But only way we're going to really figure that out is if a lot more people try it and that's one of the interesting parts experts estimate that up to sixty percent of the population needs to be using these exposure apps for them to. Be. Effective. So in Virginia that means they need about five million people to download it. But in its first weeks, covert wise got three hundred and eighty thousand downloads so very far short of that number needed. But there's other things that are kind of become a problem with this is in Virginia just by itself, but there's no big national system. So say you travel between states just whatever you come into contact with somebody else maybe using a different APP it's not this cold wise one. You know it's not all going to work. So seamlessly America's APP expeditionary. Strategy suffers from. Some of the same problems as the rest of our coronavirus strategy and that it's very local based very steep based. So as it set up right now in the United States, every state health department would have to make their own version of one of these APPs fads expressed any interest even though in other countries, it is kind of national government that's been working on these kinds of APPs. The good news is that about twenty states? Now have said that they're working on these kinds of Virginia three more joint it. So we already four out there in the wild and has been announced and effort that would make these absolute communicate with each other a little bit so that you could cross state borders with it. So that's a work in progress but not there yet,
Florida man accused of using coronavirus relief funds to buy Lamborghini
"Florida man receives three point nine million dollars in Covid nineteen relief funds Biza Lamborghini and gets arrested for fraud by just SI- abates a Florida man has been charged with fraud and other criminal offenses after receiving three point nine million dollars in covid.

"On Facebook as well where you'll find links to some of the stories that we talk about each weekend. And a lot of stuff, of course, happens in between our radio show. So you can find all those details and stories linked up there, and and stay up to date as we continue to focus on the twenty twenty election. That's already underway and the states that will determine who wins and who loses. Yeah. And really twenty states are going to be read. No matter who the candidates are thirteen states are going to be blue no matter who the candidates are. So they're already you can only already count their lettera college votes for the respective candidates. It's these seventeen states I'm gonna tell you right now are the ones that are in play that could go either way in the mid west. We're talking about Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri. Wisconsin. Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania. In the west is Nevada. Arizona New Mexico and Colorado in the south Florida, North Carolina Virginia. And in the in New England. It's Maine New Hampshire, though, seventeen states are where the twenty twenty presidential election will be determined. And each of those states have unique local issues that are going to influence the presidential vote. And it's those local issues that will be talking about on this program as you look at some of the issues just this last week that will impact particularly in those battleground states, you've got the Democrats pushing killing babies raising taxes to seventy to ninety percent rates, not securing our borders, wiping out the private insurance industry with a Medicare for all plan. That would as as Kamala Harris says would eliminate private health insurance for a hundred and fifty million Americans, Doug, the they're laying out a groundswell of issues that Republicans ought to be applauding in terms of what is going to do to move voters away from them. You mean that was only in the last week? They've been Varinder busy, you know, one of the things too. I mean, you mentioned Michael did about, you know, the the Vaga local issues that are involved in this one of the stories that really shocked me in bothering me this week. And we don't have that included in our battleground states and everything is Texas because the the GOP there said that you know, that the Texas is in danger of turning blue, and if Republicans lose taxes, what does that mean for the future here? So I mean, it certainly be concerned about I think, particularly when they found ninety eight thousand illegals registered to vote in Texas again, that's enough to swing election certainly was enough to make perhaps the Bego versus crews race closer Pennsylvania found over eleven thousand on the voter rolls that are illegally on the roles that was the state that was barely won by President Trump. So when you look at the at not just the shenanigans of how they count the votes are harvest the votes after election day, you look at the people who are going in and voting illegally and. And the refusal of the the Democrats to to deal with making sure our elections are fair and accurate by requiring things like bell a photo ID the same sort of photo ID that you're required to show to get on an airplane to buy cold medicine at a drug store to buy beer or a glass of wine at a restaurant that they want it to be easier to vote illegally than it is to go. Order a glass of wine at a restaurant. Yeah. That's amazing. When you think about it? Right. I mean, it's a I mean, the opposition that has occurred in United talked about this for years be the idea that somehow you can't or shouldn't have to prove who you are before you vote. I mean, something is important is voting after all it's supposed to be the prime responsibility of a US citizen is is the idea of casting a ballot in election. And you don't have to prove who you are before you do. It doesn't make any sense to me. And you never hear anybody screaming from the left. Oh, it's racism. If I have to show my photo ID to by glass of wine at a restaurant to get cold medicine at a drugstore to get on an airplane. I gotta tell you I fly a lot. And I have noticed that there are African Americans and Hispanics and people of other races on airplanes. So apparently, this idea that only white people are allowed to fly because only white people can get a photo ID, Doug. You know, you mentioned a Texas as as an it's not on our list of seventeen battleground states yet, I think it it won't be there. But. You raise a very good point. If you looked at Colorado, which is one of our seventeen battleground states, if you looked at Colorado twelve years ago, you'd have said that's a solid red state. Well, the progressive liberals big-money groups put together what's called the blueprint to turn Colorado, blue, frankly, Colorado right now, you know, it's not really purple. It's sort of purple blue. There's been a long term plan to try and make that change in Texas. It hasn't quite hit the the the statewide level. You have a, you know, a Republican governor you have two Republican senators now Beethoven Iraq, the democrat. With the Irish heritage. Francis.

Now, I've never heard anybody called Beethoven work force Spanich still hasn't gotten over the fact that the beta was streaming his his dental work live on the internet. That would that's one of those images you can never removed from your your mind there. Well, and and again, this is this is becoming a trend because the the new president ball scenario of of Brazil had to go in for surgery this week. He he got attacked in the last days before the presidential campaign in Brazil and was stabbed multiple times. He success successfully one successfully got inaugurated has has begun his administration, but did take a little bit of time off to go in and get surgery to repair all the stab wounds. He had and he did a video hit before he went in. Oh, he's in the hospital gown while he's in the hospital bed before he went in for surgery. So I don't wanna see where the rest of this thing going. We've already talked about the the surgeries and medical procedures of political candidates. We don't want to ever see alive on Facebook. And you can imagine which ones are at the top of the list. We don't want to say Bernie Sanders is already getting ready to trim.
