Stablecoins in the Hot Seat: Powell Calls Bitcoin a Substitute for Gold
"There was an absolute flurry of content and commentary yesterday around the place of bitcoin. Stable coins defy and the digital asset industry as a whole vis-a-vis. Us government regulation as well as how a digital dollar might shake that all up before we get into it. Let's at the terms of the debate. One of the competitors for this cycles top fudd is the government will ban it if it gets sufficiently threatening now to be clear banning depending on your sister could mean anything from an outright ban of use in holding too forceful seizure too limiting access to on and off ramps to the more benign from a commercial standpoint but no less threatening from a privacy standpoint integration of the full crypto infrastructure into the am l. kyc. Money surveillance apparatus. I've spent some time on this show looking into global versions where this fudd seems to be playing out in particular. We've been watching the evolving situation in india and nigeria india which seems gearing up for a bill that would have some sort of outright ban although at least one finance minister says that that's not the case and nigeria. Where the central bank of nigeria. I reiterated that banks should not be working with crypto users which they've then subsequently rolled back just a little bit either way however really what everyone has been focused on is the us particularly in the context of a new administration. The last administration had friends and foes alike when it came to bitcoin and crypto trump. Famously tweeted that he did not like bitcoin or crypto. But we didn't really take that seriously as a threat because it was so clearly about zuckerberg and libra mnuchin was a much bigger enemy. Probably wrote that text for trump's tweet even and clearly wanted to tighten the reins in his final act. He was trying to require exchanges to collect more information. When users transferred crypto to their own wallets on the flip side however there was brian brooks who was absolutely revolutionary at the office of the comptroller of the currency. The changes he oversaw are a huge reason. Why so many big institutions are now playing in this space. Why so many big traditional banks feel like they have to race to catch up to allow people to offer their customers crypto services however as we know from physics every action has a reaction and to some extent one reason why observers are so keenly watching the biden administration is to see how much they're going to respond or try to walk back with brooks in the occ changed on top of that. As the biden administration has come to power the price and volume around bitcoin stable coins and the rest of the digital asset industries have made them much more on ignore -able last time joe biden was in office. Bitcoin is about four hundred and thirty bucks. Now it's been over fifty thousand dollars for sixteen days in a row tether was barely out of diapers now. It has a market supply above forty billion in his doing upwards of one hundred billion dollars in volume per day combined with us dc. And you've got over. Fifty billion dollars of usd approximates there so lot more is at stake with that. People have been watching. Two things has come in and what they're saying on the who has come inside. Janet yellen is back for another round although this time is treasury secretary rather than as he chair gary genzer to is back. Although this time is as he c- chair. Instead of cftc chair of these two there is much more optimism around gessler who has done a pretty fair bit of work to understand where the crypto industry is coming from even teaching a course at mit about bitcoin and blockchain. And of course we have someone who still around in the form. Of jay powell. The federal reserve chairman. His ex factor. And all these discussions is the potential of a central bank digital currency a digital dollar. That could potentially shift the us's relationship with these projects now in terms of what we've seen these actors say so far over the last few months up until now it's been pretty standard fare one part. There's a lot of exciting potential here. One part we have to protect investors though and one part but it's also used by criminals over the last couple of days however we've gotten both comments and news that could shift as into our next phase of understanding what the us is relationship with. Bitcoin stable coins and other digital assets is going to look going forward. So let's talk about powell speaking about cdc's and cryptos at a bank for international settlements panel yesterday. Let's talk about the announcement of digital dollar prototypes coming this summer. And let's talk about new draft fat. If guidelines around cryptocurrencies. I up powell. Did a session yesterday with leaders from the bank for international settlements including augustine carstens. We talked about last week. He was asked about crypto currencies. And whether he saw them as a threat. And here's what he said. We call them crypto assets. You know. they're they're highly volatile. See bitcoin and therefore not real useful as a store of value in there not backed by anything. They're more of an asset for speculation. So they're also not particularly in use as a means of payment. It's more speculative asset. That's it's essentially a substitute for gold rather than for the dollar. And i think with crypto acids the the the public needs to understand the risks. The principle thing is there's the volatility there's also the outsized energy requirements requirement for for mining. And the fact that they're not backed by anything so let's break out these three reasons that he wasn't particularly impressed by cryptos. I this idea of volatility or that. It's just an asset for speculation. Basically he's dismissing bitcoin and any other crypto as something that he does not have to stress about or really factor into his consideration around global monetary competition while many. Bitcoin is grabbed onto the essentially a substitute for gold piece as a great tweet and knocked to the gold bugs. Who they're trying to convert or at least undermined powell was saying this more. Like a giant shooing away. A fly gold is to him clearly. Irrelevant an unimportant antiquated part of the fiat system that he sits at the helm of in that way a substitute for that thing does not present a threat
When Currencies Fail: Bitcoin Google Searches in Turkey Rise 400% as Lira Crashes
"Let's move to our main discussion and there are really two parts of the story that we're going to cover. The first is the devastating crash of the turkish lira. The second is the response of people in that country who found their money worth dramatically less than it was just a few days before first of all what happened between sunday evening and monday. The turkish lira fell as much as seventeen percent against the dollar ultimately landing around ten percent down. Turkish stocks also crashed the benchmark borsa. Istanbul one hundred stock index was down as much as nine point four percent which is the biggest sell-off since june. Two thousand thirteen. The nasdaq listed shares. Msci turkey efl seventeen point five percent pre market in the us. The cause of all this on early saturday morning. Turkish president aragon unexpectedly fired nasi ball. though central. Bank governor who had been appointed in november at the center of their disagreement was how to approach inflation. So let's step back and actually look at the scenario inherited oddball. He was the third central bank governor in two years in november the year that he came to power the annual inflation rate was fourteen point zero three percent. According to the turkish statistical institute by december it was up to fourteen point six percent now these are just official numbers and some argue that it's actually much higher on november twelfth twenty. Twenty johns hopkins. Economists hanky tweeted everyday. I accurately measure inflation in turkey today. Measure it at thirty five point six one percent this year as opposed to the official number of eleven point eight nine percent after that fourteen point six percent number came out in december. He said that it was actually twenty. Five point eight five percent per year even holding that aside if you just take the official number nearly fifteen percent inflation a year a staggering that means a having of your purchasing power every year and this has been going on for a long time sue from three hours capital tweeted last night fun fact. The reason turkish lira is t. r. l. is because they've already redenominated before due to massive hyperinflation. Let's add a little more color than about the previous year and a half. The central bank had been keeping interest rates low or at least below consumer inflation. And as we've discussed before on this show. Negative real rates mean investors are discouraged from holding that sovereign debt as well as from holding lira or lira-denominated assets. These have been the policies for eighteen months or more and by fall. The currency was at all time. Lows added to. This fire was the way the turkish central bank had been trying to prop up the lira. Selling more than one hundred billion dollars in us foreign reserves in order to keep the lira from completely cratering in the process this destroyed and depleted their foreign exchange reserves and lead them to actually owing more dollars to turkish banks than the central bank actually had determined. Opposition leaders ask for judicial probe into the official reserves as of november. The country looked to be heading to a full on balance of payments crisis. And on top of this there have been major questions around the independence of the central bank from president. Aragon aragon infrequently given the central bank direct monetary policy instructions had dismissed two governors in the previous sixteen months effectively. When we really take a step back. Turkey has been on the see-saw between currency crisis and inflation. On the one hand and massive austerity and growth slowing interest rate hikes. On the other a currency crisis twenty eighteen led to increase interest rates. And by summer of the next year aragona points quote a friend to cut rates by mid-november when oddball came in it was a swing back to the interest rate hikes austerity side of the pendulum. The first act of akbal as he came in was to immediately raise the central banks one week repo rate which is an interbank lending rate from ten point. Two five percent to fifteen percent now. Interestingly this had started to work things were looking more positive from currency perspective at least in early. Twenty twenty one. Daniel call tweeted this morning. The turkey central bank helped make lira one of the best currencies versus the us d- in twenty twenty one curbing money supply growth via rate hikes helping reduce inflation. The turkish lira was up three point zero seven percent from december thirty first twenty twenty two march nineteenth. Twenty twenty one. It had been down twenty percent the year before it also saw something like fourteen to twenty billion of foreign fund inflows into turkish assets over that same period which reversed years of the opposite direction. Basically the interest rate hikes austerity were performing well in the context of global currency markets. But ogbah clearly didn't believe inflation was getting under control to the degree that he wanted to. He raised rates again to seventeen percent and then finally on the thursday before his dismissal raise them much more than expected to full. Nineteen percent and so the pendulum is swinging back again from interest rate hikes and toward at least in the minds of investors runaway inflation. The newly appointed governor saheb cops. Yo glue said that beating. Inflation is the bank's main objective but also said that they're committed to lowering borrowing costs and bolstering growth. Money managers. basically think he's going to be forced to lower interest rates and accept currency depreciation and indeed the other place. This is showing up is in the cost of insuring. Turkey's government debt against default the price of which rose more than fifty percent over the weekend. What's more this move. And the switch. From ball to cops iaglu super reinforces the narrative that central banks lack independence from erdogan. As well casio glue is a party. Loyalist bloomberg's chief emerging markets. Economists said quote the hit to the central bank's credibility and independence can't be overstated to gone has battered the institutions with interventions that have repeatedly financial markets. Were willing to give ball a chance. His successor will find it hard to build that trust again. So let's talk now about the other dimension to this that you might have caught if you were on twitter. Google searches for the term bitcoin in turkey more than quadrupled over the weekend after akbal sacking wise. That happening while one part of it may be the idea that bitcoin provides in inflation hedge and just a different currency to get away from lira volatility. Which by the way all it using bitcoin to get away from volatility where they don't tell you when they're trying to critique bitcoin is that people can stomach more volatility if there's some possibility that those seventeen percents swings or also to the upside as well but the other part of it is that as i mentioned the new governor has said that they are committed to fighting inflation but doesn't want interest rates to be the tool because they messed with growth. What are there other tools then. Bing bing bing capital controls restricting the flows of capital out of lira and lira-denominated assets so one question might be alongside. Google searches is are we. Seeing an increase in exchange activity owner goes pack. A consultant at the bbc turk pro exchange said that there was a spike in volume and that it was four both usd t tether as an alternative to us dollars and bitcoin on btc turk the bitcoin turkish lira pair has the highest volume with the tether turkish lira pair being the second highest now. This situation is going to evolve a lot. And i think on the one hand you have to just heartbroken. For the turkish people who are stuck between the whims and machinations of politicians and global economic flows that they have no control over when it comes to how much this new set of crypto and digital assets can actually help them escape from those pains. I've said numerous times. One of them remarkable things about this moment isn't that bitcoin and digital assets are going to save everyone from the follies of local currency regimes. That's just not realistic yet. What's remarkable is that for the first time ever the entire span of human history. There is a convenient easy permission. 'less ramp from those regimes for those people. Who have the technical know how to do it. The number of people who have that know how is an ever expanding group and that means that bitcoin and digital assets at an x factor to every single currency crisis. From here on

Protesters Rally Across Myanmar, Defying Coup and Risking Crackdown
"We start today's program with the ongoing turbulence in myanmar. Massive crowds of protesters have taken to the streets as demonstrations continue against last week's coup in which the army detained elected leader. Angsana suci over the weekend me and my its largest protests in more than ten years. It's also reported that police in the capital have used water cannon on workers conducting nationwide strikes for more on this. We're joined now by professor penny green. Who's amendment expert and director of the international state crime initiative. A penny. good afternoon to you. Thanks for being with us. Just tell us first of all about your reaction to what we've seen and indeed heard about over the weekend Water cannon deployed these huge protests This is something quite different than we've seen for well more than a decade yes indeed. The last massive set of protest took place in two thousand and seven. And and i think it's. It's really quite remarkable. What's happening inside. Myanmar at the moment and the courage of the demonstrators is is really phenomenal. I think that many of these people especially the young have really effectively only known some kind of democracy albeit very fragile. I mean it was very very weak democracy but the freedom that came with after five decades of military rule is something that the people of do not want to let go of. I'm penny we'll talk. Maybe in a moment about what the military's reaction to this might be sort of medium-term in a second. But i did want to ask you about that point about the this as brickley democracy as you pointed out it is nevertheless it. Is you know thirteen. Fourteen years of that and so many people who are teenagers young people students will only have known that. Do you think that reflects. I don't know if it's a miscalculation by the military but it may be an underestimation of exactly how wedded to those notions. This this younger demographic all is it probably is a miscalculation. I think that the military scared basically very fearful of the power of the people of myanmar. They lost so badly there. They're usd pm. Military party lost extremely badly in the november twenty elections And as a result. I think Recognized in some senses that the writing perhaps was on the wall and the only way that they could shore up. The future of their their authority was to initiate a coup. I mean there are all sorts of other explanations for the kutu loudly relating to the the power and wealth of Commander in chief gentleman lie. But i do think that they have probably miscalculated But it's it's also true to say that the man my people. The burmese historically have risen up against the brutality and repression of military hunters in the past particularly nine hundred ninety eight and again in two thousand and seven even though they hadn't been tasting democracy in the recent past. So i think that there is that that there is that desire for freedom which will emerge. I'm presented itself in. These kinds of situations are well short term than the police have been very clear as as we mentioned you know that's been the deployment of water cannon In napa all ready and you know it's been presented as very much a choice to the protesters leave move on or face force potentially increasing force. Do we have any sense of the lengths to which the military and police authorities will go to in terms of escalating that force in terms of the potential for more violence on the streets. Well we look at history. We know that this military is capable of the most barbarous repression. We only have to look at the genocide hinge which took place in over the last over this infect period of so-called democracy But the worst of it was saying in two thousand seventeen when thousands were killed and eight. Hundred thousand were driven across the border into bangladesh. And if we could look back historically to two thousand to two thousand and seventeen to nineteen ninety eight. The military deployed Brutal force against all forms of demonstrators. So we know that that is on the cards. And they have issued a message via state media to the people of myanmar now to say that unless you abide by the law you have to expect that there will be A reaction and that reaction. The people of myemma know well. We'll be one of violence.
Stellar Community Fund: Payments and Beyond
"I know there's been an explosion of partnerships you guys have a stellar community fund in in all kind of go down this path throughout the throughout the discussion. But first and foremost like yeah. Give us some updates on what you what you've been working on lately for the last few months sure Over the last few months the stellar ecosystem has really grown up in part of that has to do with just organic growth. More people coming in finding the platform figuring out ways to use it building. Cool things part of it also has to do with partnerships that the stellar development foundation which is really the nonprofit organization at stewart's network. We're also trying to find people and work with people to help them integrate on stellar into us the network to to great effect right so we've also had a lotta great Partnerships that have come together of the past quarter and a lot of those have to do. With anchors anchors on stellar are basically what we call the organizations that accept deposits a fiat currency and issue credits on the network. So they're sort of the on ramp from the network and for the stellar vision of the world. There will be the goal is to get anchors and all these different markets because the network itself is asset agnostic and represent any currency. So the ideas. You get all. These anchors represent different fiat currencies on the network because the network has built an order books. You can easily exchange does makes it really good not just for like currency exchange but also things like cross border payments so we were a lot on getting more anchors onto the network and some of the big ones are sorry. Go ahead no no. Yeah that's interesting like which is one of my questions actually down the road. You're touching on it. It's like what time of what type of assets are you guys focused on there. There's tons of fiat. Are you also looking at like other cryptocurrencies or stocks. You know other types of assets data from from the traditional world you know. Is there any kind of focus or priority from from an acre sam point. Yeah the first priority for the organization. Stf stellar development foundation. I'll just probably call it. Stf from now on foot on the sdf's focus primarily at this point is on the currencies. So you know we have. We work with anchors a lot of them. We have a usd anchor just announced a new partnership with us dc. So you'll see see is going to be issued on stellar. We have a euro anchor and then we have a lot of anchors in africa and latin america in the first priority is to get those fiat currencies a representative on the network because they're good on off-ramps and because they connect people in their real lights right if you have a digital version of a currency that you can spend in your life. It's a lot more useful and we're definitely focused on practical real world use cases however there are also some really cool projects on stellar that deal in other currencies are the issue other currencies. The first i'll mention is d. Stock d. s. t. o. d. stock essentially represents a stocks on on on stellar network. As it's an app that you can use and you can basically accent trade Digital representations of stocks tesla's stock school stocks apple stocks and. It's cool because they also partner with some of these On so that it gives access to those stocks in the ability to train them to people in in markets where it's not necessarily easy to get access to those stocks right so in in nigeria where you can use the nigerian naira anchor that we have to on ramp. That company called khoury. You can then deposit that money into an account with these stock in trade stock so there's also stock trading in. Finally you asked that other cryptos yet. There are Stellar well with any payment rail including other crypto other blockchain's because you can create a digital representation of bitcoin her either just as you can of dollar nigerian naira or apple stock so we have solid that basically you can hold a stellar is version of that asset and you can redeem it by deposit giving it back to the anchor who will give you that value on the other chain so yeah there are also criticized other cryptos represented for sure
New York City to Close Public Schools Again as Virus Cases Rise
"Students in the nation's largest school district will once again be learning from home Today. New York City has closed its schools because the Corona virus has gotten so bad there again. On your Kamenetz from the NPR Ed team is in New York and joins us now. Good morning, Onya High. Rachel. How did this happen? How did New York get to this point? Well, it's been a saga you know. At the opening of schools was delayed twice this fall, There were acrimonious debates between parents, the union educators. The city, the state and most recently, it was hours after sort of the initial announcement that parents actually learned that they wouldn't have any way to send their Children the next day. Huh? So how? How are officials making this decision? What criteria are they basing it on? So Mayor Bill de Blasio had previously set this threshold of 3% positivity rates on tests taken across the city. That's that's very different from what we're seeing inside the schools where there were a few cases and we've been edging closer to that 3% standard over this past weekend. Now, Rachel 3% positivity is a pretty low level. Some critics have called it arbitrary. The mayor has called it, you know, conservative and stringent. How does this decision in New York computer what's happening happening in other places around the country? I mean, I think what we've been seeing obviously, cases air rising around the country and even in places where they'd opened up. Sometimes they have to close down again because there's so many staff in quarantine, but generally across the country, cities are much more likely to either stay remote or go remote. You know, l a USD in Chicago have stayed remote. This whole time. Detroit and Denver just went remote. So to Des Moines, set of Toledo, Oklahoma City and s. So it's it's really It's a tough time for in person school right now. So what are you learning on you about the science disclosing schools actually make a difference in curbing the spread. This is a really tricky point. You know? Most scientists at this point will tell you that schools, especially elementary schools, have not been found to be significant sources of spread. As a reported recently, we're seeing in many places in Europe. They've been dealing with the second wave by closing bars, restaurants, sometimes lots of businesses yet keeping schools open. But there's very few or if any places in the United States that are actually putting the kids first in that way, so Lots of critics who point out here in New York City. Indoor dining is still open at 25% capacity and their many local officials calling on the mayor and the governor to prioritize school's over bars or restaurants. What are parents telling you? I mean, especially parents who can't tell a work right? Who can't stay home with their kids? Right? So, you know, Rachel, this is a big, diverse district, Its majority low income and we should note on Lee about 300,000 of the Million Plus, students have been going to school in person, so there's a lot of variations. The mayor did mention yesterday that the city has space in its learning Bridges program, which is basically free child care, especially for essential workers. About 30,000 spots right now. We also heard yesterday and this is kind of upsetting when it comes to equity. There are about 60,000 students in the city who still don't have devices for learning at home. They're gonna be getting paper packets, and that's eight months in schools closed, but I think you know, I talked to Daniella example. He started a petition to keep schools open. She's a working mother of two and she feels like the city's taking parents like her for granted. I think a lot of it is frankly, you're a parent and you love your Children, so you always figure it out. But there's just no recognition of the insurmountable burden that parents have been under for the last seven or eight months. She added. A specially working moms NPR's Anya Kamenetz. Thank you. Thanks.
Kain Warwick of Synthetix on Where the Company is At
"We're. At and what are your kind of the biggest priority? Yes. I. Published an article today, you know one of the things about device it is so early that it's really hard to predict. You are out what your priorities are going to be right. You can take your best guess but. Startup life and I think you know early stage project is very much about being responsive to the market. You know you just go out there and wish that things were way up to actually deal with the way that they are. and so I think being aware of that we've seen over the last probably two to three months is that the demand for stable allstate acquaintance but decentralized orange as well has skyrocketed, and so we've had the supply imbalance where there's a ton of demand for US USD in up supply. And so we're working on alleviating that by introducing. The latest version of our either collateral, which will allow you to borrow s USD from eight directly. which is not something that's been available before So that's super exciting. And then always the gas prices are are huge issue right now So we've had a number of different optimizations that have been available to us for a long time, which we're just low priority things because you know there's a lot of priorities out there and in a lost. Three to four weeks. We basically just made a call to kind of. Pull some of the documentations out around transaction costs and try not. Muslim but probably, the biggest thing is the transition to. Optimistic. So the L. to solution from optimism team. which is a huge deal desma announcements coming out like really soon, correct me if I'm wrong but you are definitely one of the few projects that is actually working on and kind of you know going live with something that involves a level L. to solution. Right does a lot of solutions out there. Moment but I think this kind of three general categories that that are available right? You've got the hybrid off chain solution. So things like diversified, you wind ex are looking at stock wear. Because you know when you're. Using some state in like an chain solution in a stock wears quite quite a powerful solution APP Ck, your knowledge proofs essentially. Zero roll ups. And then you've got state channels and payment channels and things like that which are not really like generalized computation, but allow for very cheap payments right. So we've got billions of dollars with a stable coins flowing. Around. The theorem these days. And we need ways to kind of optimize that and then I think the the probably the most exciting category are the the actual generalized EDM compatible altitude solution. So optimistic theorem falls into that category where you're literally taking same contracts that you're running on one. And you're deploying them to this other. Chain sexually assaulted chain and so it will be. Other than out demo that we did in the union demo. You know one of the first kind of generalized elsia solutions but I think will will see running on tested initially, and then over sale may not eventually. So super super exotic. Why
Interview with Tina Wu Fredericks
"Today is Tina, move. Fredericks and Tina is running for the School Board of Pasadena Unified School district, and I was just excited to meet someone who I think. Tina this is correct. This is your first elected. Effort and would like to introduce you especially to the folks. In the past school district who can vote but also to our national and global audience just to meet. Another Asian American is not going to sit on the sidelines and his decided to really get involved. So welcome to our podcast. Can thank you for having me. So you're second generation chinese-american. You used to teach public school. You've serve multiple terms on your local PTA board you are software engineer which. Blows my mind and you're you're the mom of two kids, two daughters who actually go to the USD schools. So what prompted you to with all the other things that you've done already, you're definitely involved parent why run for the school board. Yeah so I have I guess like you said, I have two daughters once ten wants thirteen and I've been ditching for a year. And one of those parents that are. Very active volunteering fundraising. Helping my daughter's school and you know over the years is been kind of the same thing budget cuts. we don't have a librarian we have to raise money for these basic enough staff and school supplies. Now, just see this repeating year after year that I've been here for eight years. and. That kind of coronated with the. I know this is. was go closures in the past two years in that was what? Was the. Last Straw you know of is like my daughter almost her school was almost closed and that's really really dramatic or. Little kids you know. So when they were closing schools like three three at a time three or four at a time, and that's really traumatic for kids in entire communities. So I want this is because of budget cuts yet due to the budget cuts and. and. There's like a fierce competition with private schools in Pasadena Area I believe we have the most A. Private schools per capita in the country. So that's an additional. Challenge for our district. Yeah, one of our previous guests maybe year and a half ago told me the history of private schools in Pasadena and I didn't realize it was it was an adverse reaction to the civil rights. Passage Act and there was all these parents that said well, even though this federal judges coming down. Out of the deep South, coming to P USDA, and saying, we're going to do bussing because you guys are segregating your schools. Then all of a sudden, all these people these groups got motivated to start these private schools and Christian wants to which you know when I learned that history. I'm I'm sure you're aware of it. I was appalled as like, Oh, I was wondering why there are so many private schools but now it makes sense it's like, oh well, we're not racist not against integration we just want to start her own school. Right yes. That it was a response to the busing in the effort to integrate our schools. Yeah. That's unfortunate. But yeah, that is you know we are feeling the effects of that. Now, there's a there's also learned in researching you. There's an altruistic reasons for you running for the school board and it has to do with continuing the legacy of your late mother. Yes Oh, you've done your research. Yes my mom and Wu is A arts promoter, she was an arts promoter, and for decades she was Camille leader. Back in. In San Jose North in San Jose. And she was quite the political activist i. KNEW GROWING UP I didn't know any. You know she's my mom but. Yes, she was really a activist and she loved A. On. Chinese culture and I grew up. Learning Chinese folk dances we would. Go to San Francisco on rehearse these dances sing songs in Chinese I didn't really understand what I was singing but. I knew it phonetically so I have really. Rich, culture grew up with a very. Deep appreciation for my heritage and I you know I think my my own mother for that and Yes she passed away a few years ago and We recently had A.

Switching Cryptocurrency Markets On Binance
"One of the confusing things about exchanges is the the screen looks exactly the same no matter what market you're looking at. The only clue as to what you're looking at is the asset pair listed at the top. So the order in which the assets appear matters. So when it comes to reading the numbers Ath Batiste. Is Different to BTC e t h is essentially the same market is just looked at it from different points of view and we WanNa know which side where viewing from. So where reading the market correctly. So. The first thing to know is the asset this listed I last cold the base asset and one is listed. Second is called the Tim's asset. So the base and the Thames. When we look at the price, it's a ratio between those two assets. And because markets are constantly moving, we need some kind of anchor something that doesn't change so that we can understand what's happening. And this is accomplished by the based asset always being one unit. So. If we're looking at E. T. H. BTC market well, I'm looking at one. Age and its price in BTC. If I then changed the market. By clicking on the pair. Let's say I change it to exit P. BTC. One Unit X. P. and its price in BTC. So that's one ex-. Priced in Bitcoin. So to be clear. The Thames Asset. Is what the market is priced in. Now switching markets is as simple as just did is simple as clicking on the current trading pack. And then clicking on the market, you want to change it to. Add suggests that it's best to actually just type in the search box because this'll fill to the list and make it much simpler than scrolling. So whatever you type in here. It will filter down to just those assets that have the letters that you typed. This relying you knowing the ticket symbol for the YOU WANNA trade though so If, you know the name of the asset, but you don't know it's ticker symbol has a tip for you. You can go to coin market Cap Dot Com and you just set for it by name. So let me set for truthfully. So it is true flip. And when you go to the page for the asset is says the name of the project that for and there is the ticket symbol right? They're. So the ticket symbol for true it is T.. F.. L.. Now, the next thing you need to know is that assets may be priced in different assets. So let's go back to bite on CNN and when I click on the trading day, you'll know his here the top the rationally four Thames currencies or four Tam's assets to choose from. You can be in be Biden's his own coin Bitcoin Alz, and then USD. For the sake of simplicity, I would stick with Bitcoin, BTC and the US dollar coins. They're also the markets that typically have the most trading activity, which is a good thing because when you play in order to buy or sell a Crypto, you want it to be filled sooner rather than late. You don't want to sit there waiting for someone to come in in a process that order. said to be clear what is listed in this box depends on the Thames you have selected. So here like like BNB. All this stuff is only only coins at trade against being be if I'm on BTC tap, then everything appears is only the stuff that trades against bitcoin and so on. Now, this is important because the set box is also limited to whatever tab you have selected. So if I'm on the US Dullah Tab for example, and then I put in the search box. S. Well, I'm only going to see this edge results for IOS trading Pez against the US dollar coins. The. Good thing about finance and the search feature is that will I can leave the sandwich in there, and then just click across the various tabs and that stays in the second books. So I can see by doing this all the different things that IOS trades against. Now if you enter the ticket symbol in the set box and nothing appears, then that's most likely means that the asset is not even listed for trading on the exchange you're using. So let's search for true flip again. So we did T. F. L.. Was the ticker symbol we just found out about. and. Well. nope. In this case Binz doesn't list true flip anyway. This is also one of the things you can use coin market cap for when we go back to Komaki happy when you sit for an asset. And Scroll Down does these tabs down here you've got charts and then you've got markets if you click a markets. And then we scroll down even further. You can see here true flip is only listed on one exchange, which is q coin, and it trades in two markets once against Bitcoin a once against if theory. So it's a quick way finding out if the asset you actually want to trade is listed on your exchange on not. In this case if I wanted to buy or sell true flip out after go and create an account with the exchange that's my only option. Just to close off this lesson, then drive at home. Let me go back to the trading screen. Unless load OBE. yaas BTC SO CETERA Yeltsin the such books make sure on the Bitcoin Tab. Click on it. Make sure that the symbols at the top his BTC unlike I said Elliot, the whole interface remains the same in it structure but the contents of all these various elements is now filled with information about your speedy see. Now. I'm GONNA break all this down for you and explain it step by step to gauge that point of crypto exchange mastery. This lesson was just focused specifically on switching markets and showing that insight about the base and the Thames currency. That's how we determine what something is priced in.
Parents Sue Los Angeles Unified Over How It’s Handling Distance Learning
"Have filed a class action lawsuit against the L. A Unified school district. Lawsuit claims L. A USDA is remote learning plans fall short of providing students what they need to learn. More specifically says the district's distance learning planned violates the students right toe a basic public education under the California Constitution, and the black and Latino students, English learners and students with disabilities are disproportionately impacted. Dear Elizabeth, his lawyer at Kirkland and Ellis. That's the law agency representing the families, Pro bono. She pointed toe, low online participation rates and shorter workdays for teachers as glaring issues that have not been addressed. Even though L. A USD had 4 to 5 months to rectify the glaring deficiencies from the spring program. They failed. Several parents spoke at a press conference in downtown L a today, including cash, our Russia whose son is in the district. He fills us supporting his education. And I am afraid that my son is not prepared for the sixth grade. The work that my son is receiving is not challenging. His schedule was not consistent.

The LG Wing 5G phone has a swiveling screen, because it's 2020, so why not?
"The LG wing is the leader in the wacky department these days, and we're happy to report that the LG wing is officially a real thing in the world that exists I l L. G announced the device at an event yesterday. And the LG wing is a smartphone with a swivelling display and Guimba camera. It's part of the new LG explorer project. And they said both an initiative and a category and will include devices to deliver distinctive and yet unexplored usability experiences and starting to get real feelings of like el-jisr modular line. That that, you could have used that same sentence for that module aligned with this with with this line. So I like that LG still has a wacky corner in the office works from home but. that is doing this sort of weird stuff and trying to figure out ways that you can. You can explore unexplored usability experiences. It's like the star, Trek Enterprise of. android phones are so. The specs on this is a it's going to six point eight, inch front display it swivels ninety degrees to. Mode revealing a secondary three point nine inch display underneath it. It's really kind of wonderful when you think about it, you can you can run up on both screen simultaneously. it's all based on this hinge mechanism that was tested over two hundred thousand rotations for five years. So basically, that's five years at one hundred swivels a day which I wonder how many times you would actually swivel per day that's interesting question but I guess they assumed one hundred. So there it is has a thirty two megapixel pop, Selfie, Camera And if There's your popup selfie camera. I do love good pop up camera there it is and if you feel like you have to have this. You'd better be verizon customers because it's give me on verizon first and then. Later this fall no US pricing yet. But in Europe the pricing is around one, thousand, nine, hundred, nine euros. So you can do the math and figure out what that would be dollars which we can do right now we want just to give some sort of sense of to USD. Thank you Google that would be about thirteen, hundred USD. So essentially, you could get, you could get the. Microsoft surface duo or the LG. Wing give or take one hundred bucks. That's kind of the world that we're in right now who are going to try and keep it at that price or if it will be will cheaper or maybe it's subsidized through verizon or whatnot but listen no one will have a phone that looks like your phone if you get the. I'll tell you that right now.
Why you should wait to buy an iPhone
"Joan by an IPHONE. Over the next many weeks. Because Apple. In the phones are preparing to launch later this fall in October. Or, going to have. Pretty much a lineup of five g phones. and. They're going to make. Initially. According to Bloomberg seventy, five, million. Five G. IPHONES. and. That means that if you buy a new iphone right now. You're paying top dollar for something that is the three big cell phone carriers migrate their networks to five G.. You're going to be suffering having a very expensive phone that won't operate on the new five G. Networks. Apple users tend to hold their phones for a longer period of time, and it would be a risky venture for you to lay out money. Now, if you live in an area where you don't really care about reception because the reception you have is just fine the speed of the network just fine wait till the new. Five. G. IPHONES come out. And the value of USD iphones will be much much lower because people want the latest greatest when apple has an inflection point. And, the new five G. IPHONES will be an inflection point. In. So you'll be able to find people's US now unloved iphones at a lower price than they would have been before.
Celo: Towards Prosperity for Everyone with Marek Olszewski & Rene Reinsberg:
"You guys. I was reading through the website a little bit before and read somewhere that sells philosophy is based on Charles Eisenstein Sacred Economics cures like we say guy, what's sacred economics? Shots philosopher been very influential on work. We've been doing you know I. Think we can chat about some of the concepts that he introduced that. We think this technology brought to life at a at a big scale. I think one thing maybe for people who are new to settle into the community maybe let me just kind of lay out of the community tenants that we kind of set for the work that everyone is doing and that. kind of in a way make sure people have a sense for what Selah stands for independent new regardless of where the building and what kind of application they building, how looking to kind of use the platform those attendance are designing for all big one loss. You know you brought up finish choosing but think it's less about just puny focusing on tradition inclusion but it's designing a system that is truly accessible to everyone and I think by focusing on communities that are more excluded today, you actually have a shot at having ultimately something that that is accessible to everyone can work for everyone set the first one. The second one is innovating on money, which is kind of. Vein of Prima money and I think this is where you see some of the. Ideas that shots introduced in among other things. Book Cigarette Mixing Charles has been an advisor Selah which has been awesome but I think when you look at the history of money, you see it hasn't really changed the sixteen hundreds, and now we have this opportunity to really kind of actually change what money is that what it can the benefit can bring to communities in. So with that looking at really revisiting the future of money, and of course, we're starting in a much more pragmatic place, stable coins, digital that represent Fiat currencies but you know in the future we see currencies take different shape and you know concepts like natural currencies are things that are really interesting to us. Related to that striving for beauty attendant that is important. You know when you create isn't GonNa make the world in maybe a little bit cheesy. But more beautiful places that actually bringing things that will bring joy in value to communities and just someone who's debating whether they want to be part of community think seeing that and thinking about the things that they. Want to build gifts for more information at the last one. This is maybe one that does feel even more important in today's kind of times. This is about humidity embodying your mentality that has helped us. You know I think we if you talk to us get you know this already I mean we don't pretend we know all the answers have all the answers. Certainly like the undertaking of the mission, for Sallow, to have a better financial system that allows prosperity for everyone, it's not something that smoke with people can just build and roll out and like grow, but it is a team after it's an effort of a growing community, a lot of people being involved over the world to shape that drive that and so the best way to kind of go about it by asking questions by showing vulnerability humility, those are the the broader tenets for several. In addition to those tenants. Have a separate vision statement for the future. Some specific target you're looking to achieve or is it more that you owner achieve something that brings about financial inclusion and like mobile in the world and? So, tell, US, mission at its core is to build a financial system that creates the conditions for prosperity for everyone, and the way that we're doing that is by building a permission lists platform that makes financial tools accessible to anybody with a mobile phone, and maybe those also taking a step back for those who are. What hello can concretely it's a preface state platform that is fully compatible. I would say that there are three key innovations that help us and if achieve this mission, each of which were really specifically chosen to make fellow more usable to someone using it via mobile phone. Has. A CLIENT PLUTO, which leads mobile devices think chain can endure instantly. The current version that we've launched requires certain about seventeen thousand times, less data to sink than a traditional espe- based like client and these soon to launch SNARK based version of this will be one point seven, million times more efficient, and this allows anybody on a mobile phone. To sink in a fully peer manner with the chain in a police censorship assistant manner. There's no need for something like in fuhrer to be able to connect with the chain from your mobile device. Secondly, fellow has a stable coin that's native to the platform called fellow dollars or C. USD Algorithm Mick and Crypto collateralized. been currently, there's about just over six million, US the circulation, the network launched and the number been growing steadily since launch. This is collateralized with around two hundred, twenty million dollars worth of trip to assets which include fellow the native acid on the platform bitcoin and if and then critically even the USDA is implemented. As a token on the platform, you can actually pay for transaction fees with Tokens on the platform. So you can actually pay transaction fees with the US. And then finally stellar has an on chain PKI which maps. Phone numbers or Hashes phone numbers to public keys in Wallet addresses so that people can find each other really easily by phone number, and so this allows people to send payments to anyone in their contact with even if the recipient hasn't even. Create an account on this network, and so these three things can have taken in unison really allow us to build a really great mobile kind of experiences that are
One of the Biggest Tekken Tournaments of All Time Never Paid Anyone
"Well over a year ago in March of two, thousand and nineteen, a series of East sports events were held in Khobar Saudi, Arabia including. The True Gaming Tekken invitational this single tournament featured a prize of one hundred, ten thousand dollars USD, which was then the single largest prize pool in taking history for a little context, the two thousand eighteen technical tour finals at a prize pool of Twenty Five K. and Evokes Tekken Prize. Pools are even lower than that and heavy hitters from around the world came to participate. In this thing, I'm talking to likes of Don's knee Chanel. Roma. Are Slash you get the picture from a production standpoint the true gaming tech invitational grave they had an awesome stage set up the stream quality was good. The had commentator and analyst desk great camerawork was clean and in terms of the actual game play competitively, the tournament was great i. mean we saw some of the best players of all time from all around the world give us some unforgettable moments. But after all that confetti was cleaned up after the stage was dismantled in after the community's attention shifted to other events there remained one big problem. Apparently nobody paid. Now this all hit the public's attention in a big way only recently when tech master provident fighting game player and one of the invitees to the gaming tech invitational tweeted about not receiving his prize money from a different event that was organized by the same people. Now, as far as the true gaming tech invitational goes the one with one hundred, Thousand Dollar Prize Pool I talked to tech and master about it, and he said that communication between the players who are owed money in the company who produced the event true gaming hasn't exactly been productive when it comes to when how or infant if they'll get their prize after one month. A number to contact with and every time the new right it's. Like on the process of giving you the process guys. we'd be coming back to you on. Data to and every time like the guy is saying, he did not receive any funding for the first. He's promised to receive it a next month. Don't want everytime delays rate rate until. One year happened instead even. One year under half extra. Here's the thing though true gaming say that they were hired just to produce the event and that the prize money has nothing to do with them at all I managed to get in contact with a guy named a Med almost STAFA. Who is the head of business development at true gaming and he says that the true gaming tech invitatinal took place within a larger event called. Gamers con. He told me that the owner operator of that event, a company called. Tail Events Exhibitions Management Co is responsible for the prize money we correspond over email about it and let me read to you what he told me quote true gaming's role in the event was to operate the competitions and gaming centered activities that have relied on our gaming industry knowledge and know-how. Our team has been contacted by the winners and his forwarded their grievances to k all A and have shared all contact information directly Takeo so that there is a direct. Line of communication and no delay caused by layered communications in the later email he also told me quote we've tried to finalize this matter on numerous occasions. We were even under the impression that it was going to conclude a sooner time and we are completely taken aback by how all have. Let this drag on for so long and quote worth noting here that shortly after I got in contact with gaming, they released a public statement about the matter that was. Very much in line with what they told me privately as far as this K- All events exhibitions management company goes that's where the trail goes a little cold for me I tried calling them with a number on their website and for me it didn't work I tried tweeting out I've emailed them and I tried to use a contact form on their website that is broken apparently so far as of the filming of this video I haven't heard anything back from them. Hubbert. Ladies Tom. Blood I can mean a look at a High Horse Shukran your call cannot be completed as dialed. Please make sure you enter the correct number. It's probably also worth noting here that there were a bunch of other invitational tournaments that took place on the same weekend within this gamers con that we're all organized by true gaming there was rocket league invitational. There was a beep invitation on their Mash Bros invitation and like I said, they were all organized by true gaming who seem to be a company who do everything from eastport centric youtube videos to mainstream game reviews to event production. Now, let's just back up for a quick second. Because there are other entities involved in this issue beyond just the players true gaming and this K- All events and Exhibitions Management Company, and I'm talking about agencies for the Saudi Arabian government see according to Tech and master about six months after the event when it became clear that they weren't going to get their prize money anytime soon, a lot of deep participants in the gaming, Tech. Invitational. Got Together an organized to try to figure out what their next steps they went to a guy who goes by the tag burke came and he contacted to Saudi Arabian government agencies namely, the General Entertainment Authority in Saudi Arabia and more pointedly. The Saudi Arabian Federation for Electric Intellectual Sports see the true gaming invitational had to be sanctioned by these bodies in order to put on their event in the first place and as to who this Berkane guy is. He is a Saudi Arabian eastport seen community leader and individual player manager who has served as a sort of go between between the players, the T os, and the government agencies that oversee East sports in Saudi Arabia and he told me that he's been in contact with those government agencies and they are actively investigating this situation. As we speak I have conducted the federation on behalf of some of the players and they. Did investigate the issue and I believe they have officially contacted all the parties involved in this case on soon, they would return resolve at least from where I'm sitting it's not going to be easy to figure out who's actually on the hook for this money according to Tech Master Burt. CAIN and some other folks I spoke to nobody actually signed any kind of contract or documentation that stipulated how when or I guess technically even if they would get paid out this prize money according to Burke Cain East sports in Saudi Arabia is still very much in a phase where contracts are not the standard sports itself and Saudi is still new. and. It started based on community efforts where almost everything was based on trust. That moved along when he sports stuff to grow on many companies started to throw big huge ovens. Everyone trusts what's being advertised after all the low in Saudi will hold you accountable for what you advertise. Let's say trust is what? being practiced here in Saudi I do believe that should change and perhaps tap. Last year will rise the awareness in the community
Los Angeles and San Diego Schools to Go Online-Only in The Fall
"Very eventful day in Southern California has experience with this pandemic, and it's affecting Ella USD. It's remarkable I I was listening to the mayor's news conference a little bit earlier, and he made in aside essentially saying that the number of cases in L. A county positive cases in L. A county of covert 19 now outstrip all of Canada and that if L a county were its own country, it would rank 20th in the world in terms of infection, And that is a remarkable statistic When you consider also the second largest school district in the country, Of course, Ella ust resides here in L. A county. And the planners and the officials for the school district have been wrestling with what to do when August 18th arrives that, of course, the first day of the new academic year and the speculation had been that perhaps we would see some sort of a blend of online and in person instruction. So you know, maybe you would have half the class show up on Tuesday. Wednesday Thursday and the other half of the class show up on Monday and Friday. And the other half. That's not there maybe is online and you know, you just kind of makes things up to at least get the kids on campus because what we have found is that a staggering number of students when it's online instruction on Lee just do not engage for a lot of reasons out there that we don't have time to get into. So the assumption was, we would see some sort of blend like that. Then. Last week, the California Teachers Association, the United Teachers Los Angeles, the chapter basically of Sita, here and down in Los Angeles, came out. They said. We don't want any in person classes because of what we've seen over the last 4 to 5 weeks. This massive surge again this resumption of cases in L. A county and they made their case for online only instruction and AH, l ust being the second largest and not to mention also San Diego coming out in a joint statement this morning, saying, We're going to start the year with online on Ly instruction, which is Major development when you talk about the number of other districts that were waiting for a big one, like Ella to make a move like that we're going to start to see a lot of dominoes fall not only in California, but I would presume in other states. They're seeing a tick up in cases like Arizona in Texas and Florida, Georgia and all these other places, right for all the reasons you mentioned. And the first that you did mention, which is that we're the second largest school district in America. I think this is exactly right. There were the litmus test and it might be the strategy that a lot of other municipalities through the country imposed, But obviously the problems extend into well OK, so now these kids were home, so they have to have some supervision at home. And you have parents who or other, you know, kind of health care rather a childcare situations that are going to have to evolve TTO handle. These kids were now at home. I mean, there seemed to be complexities here. I'm not suggesting that these policy makers have to address all of them in the moment. I understand that there is trying to handle the classroom problem, but the other problems seem substantial. Yeah, That's the I mean, you hit on the right The complexity off the cova. 19 pandemic is one that a singular entity like Elio Stas. Biggest, it is cannot deal with on its own, because the tentacles off Cove it stretching to every little facet of our lives. Right now, That's what we're discovering Mohr and Mohr. So you know you can't restart the economy until you get kids back in classes, But you can't get kids back in classes until you have the testing in the tracing to understand where this disease is cropping up. And being able to cut off that tentacle so that ah, classroom is safe. Not for a teacher. So that a Boston safe enough for the students and for the driver so that the lunch line is safe enough for the lunch lady, You know, it's not just about the kids. It's about everyone. Those kids come in contact with and for just a singular high school. You're talking about hundreds of thousands of context that permeate from that school. And if you want to do testing if you want to do tracing in every single school, Austin Beauty brought this up the superintendent. Avella USD this morning, he said. If you want to do it in every single school across the country, you're talking about $15 billion in order to set up that program. But the federal government has been absent of leadership in this issue. And because of that, it's made it even more difficult for local school districts to come to a solution come to a decision, which is part of the reason why here we are 56 weeks out from the start of the school year and just now really coming to grips with the fact that the kids are not going to be headed back to school, and Mom and Dad may not be able to go back to work, and that We'll have further repercussions in the economy. As we move forward, Christian Carlo is with us. I want to continue this conversation. But I want to ask you if there was any indication as to what the classroom would look like. I mean, with the virtual classroom would look like I mean how they've shut this shop. Clearly they given it, some thought. So there's so much more to the story if we're going to go to an online experience as soon as August 18th It's going to affect so many kids in so many families. As we said, I mean, the numbers are overwhelming. I mean, there are on top of the Million's just what is the actual number of kids enrolled in L. A is doing Had it here. It's ah, It's a huge, huge number. But there it is. It's 1/2 a 1,000,000 K through 12 students, about 75,000 employees. On DH. So you're dealing with this, these people and as as Christians, saying they interlock in so many different ways, and all those ways exposed these people to some risks, So

with the uterine lining the child moves his fingers over the uterine lining and that causes changes well that or to produce it in coherence much it does what we end up with is a perfectly coherent different set of fingerprints unique and different from anyone else in the whole world hello well it's a P. genetics epigenetic sees a word that is created to explain something that at the moment is still inexplicable epigenetics is a theory that says certain genes get turned on and off in certain inexplicable ways okay we're dealing with the world today where it is an absolutely fundamental obsession that there needs to be a materialistic explanation for every life process and they are desperate to find a materialistic explanation for this one the fact remains that up I have an explanation of my world view is that not that through a lengthy process of an aid it I'm AT that materialistic evolution that primitive protoplasm transformed into climbers and propped Allah just I don't think that what happened the other view points is that the good lord created us and put us here created us in his image and put us here I can prove that of course right but the point is neither can the other side prove they have you on these are decisions each and every person has to make for themselves based on their own evidence and when you said on aided you mean that it made might have banned that we crawled out of the swamp but there was a design there was a creation there was like a ruling that out right yeah the the the the left the logic of the theological narrative on the left is an aid to hear this again therefore how do twins have identical twins have the well there's gotta be some ex right well actually is the explanation is that we were created in the image of a god and the whole reason we call it monotheism is because god is unique there's not a whole new kind of plea of them this isn't Greek mythology and so you've got is unique then if he created us in his image will and obviously we're unique as well and how unique we are unique in our faces and our fingerprints that's how we are unique our fingers all of the the metaphor for our creativity yeah people speak to will have your hands at and for us to be unique of a makes absolutely no sense to me a fingerprint should better be cold a sole print not a finger prints and so will will it be possible to create some humanoid monster I don't know the answer to that I have absolutely no idea about what we were talking about the lawn mask off the air yeah and you said if the lan musk says it even less it refers to batteries I say no I go the other way right and that brought me to a I which is around the corner now whether we get there or not people's speculate but we are getting to a place to where artificial intelligence will become general intelligence and then super intelligent and we will not be able to keep up with it and they are already started and we re we already called right now it is impossible to fly an F. eighteen fighter jet without a computer in other words a pilot nor any human being lacks the speed correct answer and I think the same is true for most passenger jets today I think if there's a computer failure yeah basically you just need to get it done as quickly as possible because you called fly it entirely manually without the electronics so we we have a level of intelligence if you like a electronical digital intelligence that as far as the humans but what I don't see is the and here's where I would differ from from Ilan mosque he's obviously smarter than me but I don't know that he has more wisdom than me wisdom isn't intelligence he is super intelligent but I don't think he is a wise person and what what wisdom and again wisdom for as far as I'm concerned didn't come from me it's just came from from my knowledge of the Bible but part of what the what wisdom would dictate Hey is that up it's not a case of intelligence it's also a case of will and consciousness and I see zero evidence of any machine developing the capacity of consciousness and will and without the hat so what is consciousness and consciousness is awareness of self in other words human beings writes poetry about their feelings dolphins for all their intelligence do not at all well Sir not the computers can write music it won't be long I mean it's already past the Turing test computers of already that is the term that's a very low bar to know I know it is it is but what is the bar of conscious as proof that your conscious I know your conscience your conscious you know I am but how do we prove that how do I proved to myself I am or to others I I II I define myself I I couldn't describe my innermost feelings an end as far as composing music which I absolutely cannot do I wish I could but I'm converting a human emotions into sounds I don't know that intelligence that machinery will ever be able to do that now the words I can say to a song writer the genius this I mean you know whether it's Paul McCartney all composers of the pasta write a piece of music that'll make men be willing to March off to war a human being can do that right music that'll bring a lump to my throat I'm a hardened guy and I'm not a very emotional sentimental guy write music that and somebody will do that I believe but I don't think a machine hello I believe we are either there or very close up all right at you I'll bet you in our life we are in the in the next five years I'll be able to prove that wrong what we shall see right now I will travel anywhere in the world to see a machine that can compose music on the Mont I don't believe it well they can compose music in the same way by the way that we don't know yet so you might call the the fever about koko the gorilla that was talking yeah yeah yeah right end of them again not you know I I I was not the only one obviously but but plenty people understood these things was saying this complete nonsense there's a woman who's investor in tile life on making this guerrilla talk I think we can assume she's projecting low but then we actually got down to it we took a look at that we saw that not only couldn't guerrilla talk but she would be really cool animals cannot pull speech is part of human conscious all right so now let me switch Thomas I mean take a quick break and come back and I want you to tell we only got about seven minutes or so they gonna tell the the the story can you tell at that time absolute okay we'll do that and the second on on socialism it's in it's in the Bible the first the first example

"White House, you want to make sure that you are providing a good sort of four looking face and giving people of all the backgrounds people across all of America, good motivation and a good role model to be able to aspire to and work tour. Words and show that it is possible to be able to provide valuable services to people, particularly when you have this diverse background and these diverse groups of people contributing to a a worthwhile goal that helps everybody in America agreed on that is one big thing because we can't take especially all one Pacific group that we can't figure out some problems affect other groups of people. So when things I'm super proud about and UCS how diverse we are. And I know that another group that came about in somewhat similar timeframe as eighteen f and I know that they've gone through a recent name change. I'm wondering if you can just talk a bit about what the overall operating model is for USD s and maybe some compare and contrast with how eighteen f works is eighteen was one of ours. This series, CS and good partners and the difference between eighteen for the most part is enough probable, and we're not and that makes a little bit of a difference. Women have a problem happen. So a couple months ago. There was a problem in easy museum. Go into next fix and eighteen that because of course, recoverable they had to do contracts in the us, and they can't get as they need a lot of time for the going into something. But one of the things that we do out UCS is we have these things called discovery sprints give recommendations out of in. Sometimes it's just like, hey, you know, be known the easy that could fix problems that maybe Shahar eighteen up, and that's kind of how we work together to solve some of these technical challenges. The government has and can you give a bit of a flavor for some of the types of products that you work on and how the overall project management and project discovery process happens and what's involved in actually getting the US involved in different agencies in different projects. Sure. So some of the products, you weren't as anything from helping immigration and getting people green cards to one of our projects hacking, the Pentagon, which was crazy and scary thing present to the Pentagon into dean saying, hey, look in privacy. We have bug bounties. And we have people who get paid to hack systems in that way, you could finals abilities faster and someone else's and find them and use them for bad reasons, how do product selection, and this is this is one of our greatest factor. When we pick projects is what is the greatest good for the greatest for the most amount of people. And that's usually how we pick out projects impart sizing be base it off of that. And so does the. Selection process happen within USD s or is it something where different agencies will come to you with project proposal. And then it's up to somebody some other agency to figure out what gets worked on. Or is it largely within the control of USDA to figure out where you're spending your time and resources on so mostly within the control of us agencies. Come to us in and say la- caving to help something and will evaluated will do discovery sprints. We'll see sometimes it's just them recommendations after this. And sometimes it's a full owning gauge -ment depending on the project, but for the most part we have full control over what projects that we choose pick. And. Like, I said the criteria is mostly the greatest good for most amount of people. And so can you talk a bit about some of the overall technology choices, the generally make some of the standard tooling that you use particularly how on might fit into the various projects and also how that decision making process of tooling factors in based on what agency you're working with and what systems are already in place. So yeah, when we go to agencies retry, so we work closely with contractors and vendors further employees, typically pick the tool kits that work for them. Some of the main things that we definitely going to make sure that we have in places things like version control, maybe moving and migrate into the cloud. And for the moral decision making based upon what works for that particular agency. And do you ever a lot of different python tooling as part of your overall toolkit for building.

"L A USD and one of the biggest stories that we're covering now. Jamie Kloss and coming up at eight o'clock out of Barron county. Police officials are holding a press conference. And we are going to carry it live. So talking about this story. Ryan burrow, ABC news. Correspondent is covering it. And Ryan, this is an extraordinary story of which is we don't get really good news stories too often under these circumstances. I saw good morning. Thanks for joining us. And let's go right into it. What is happening in this on this story here? Let's wash back to yesterday nine one one call place Romeo woman inside of a home in Gordon, Wisconsin, not a very big Douglas county Jiang that they have Jamie. She is there, and it all started. When Jerry apparently walked up to a woman in the neighborhood walking her dog. Instantly recognize? Grab JV and they went into this home and called nine one one Jamie sat on the couch. Twenty minutes for police to arrive. They say she had met at hair that she looks about durhush that she was a thinner than she had previously been in her photo what she was alive. And she was there a team healthy enough. They did ask her a few questions while they waited for police. She said she had no idea that she was imported Wisconsin. Gorka. Wisconsin was told them that she was being held by a person that you know. And that that same person kills her parents. So that's all the information. We're getting from the witnesses police themselves. So we haven't given up. Juliette found Eddie Douglas county. They said that they had found duty while I called in. So got where we stand right now. All right. No indication or identity of the suspect at this point. Correct. Now, there are some local reports and early twenties, but we'll probably gotta get confirmation about all of that information. Whether or not this man, then with the whole time, or when they had gotten to Gordon, Wisconsin. All right now. Now, it's being reported that from the time she was discovered to the time that the suspect was picked up arrested was about ten minutes is can you go into that? And explain how that works because I'm a little confused as to how this happened so quickly. Well, I think what they're talking about eight the official that police finally late. There is John J to the time when they they picked up this person who apparently was in a whole just a couple doors down Joe. You know, that that's probably why they arrived JD you wear person just down the street at that. They went bait that made that apprehension so that that's that's all understated right now. But we'll we'll have to see what thirty say. All right. As far as the murderer of her parents, do we know under what circumstances? The obviously he broke in. Where was she was she in a bedroom where she there that had happened in front of her? Do we have any information at all? But we have indicated that they believe Jamie was there at the time of Jilin, which by the way, happened late one night the door to the home had been broken in up. Both of her parents were found shock adapted. Of course, one point two by Jimmy was nowhere to be found out immediately following the burgers, at least said the finding of the body. They look at surveillance video and who had initial descriptions of two vehicles. They thought may have been in the area at the time. But we don't know if that handout and former keep it by two that it's been three months. And it wasn't until I die with one call. But they really got the break. How were the parents murdered? What was? Yeah. They were shot to death without exactly no. It's not what what type of gun used. This was a robbery this person. Do the family Jamie difficult that she didn't know I was witnesses. But maybe we'll find out a little bit more about that today. Yeah. This is when this happens, it affects us very differently than you have a family situation where you have people that know, the family, this is simply out of the blue like Polly class just someone comes in. And it's the ultimate nightmare for parents with their children to be kidnapped. And this is even worse because you have the parents murdered. And then you have Jamie picked up and without trying to sound. Well, I think the question that should be asked was she there any evidence of her being sexually assaulted being hurt in any way tied up. That's that's something that will be asked. Yeah. We don't know that points to family the remaining family members there. They're dead self. She will probably adopt eventually custody of a close family members like aunts and uncles and said that they're just glad she's alive. And obviously all this stuff to be sorted out in the future by dot. They're just happy that that she is alive is I think most of us didn't think would end this way. Right. All right. Thanks, Ryan, greatly appreciated. Ryan burrow, ABC news. Correspondent is covering this story nationally and for us, and no one ever thought that you'd see little thirteen year old girl, again, how many stories do we have where you have the Elizabeth smart. So this world where you have kids that survive this. Because of course, whenever anybody's reported missing. It's what what are the police say after twenty four forty eight hours the chances of finding someone alive under these circumstances are virtually nonexistent. So all of a sudden out of the blue is this extraordinary story, and it's very. Good news. Now, we'll see how how how banged up. She is. Because obviously the trauma is extraordinarily here. Especially for parents were killed in front of her as opposed she hears gunshots, and the intruder just takes her away. And she doesn't see, and it may be even isn't aware that her parents were killed. Although I think she did say to the police to that stranger that picture up that that neighbor saying that he killed by parents. Yeah. The trauma not just the physical trauma. Absolutely. But the emotional. I mean, he absolutely horrible horrible. Okay. Coming back, the California. Police unions are preparing for the new transparently laws that just kicked in for the police. You know, we have to know any police officer who is in involved in a shooting or has been found to be a liar and a previous case. Well, yeah, they're not very happy for sure and California's very strange when it comes to this issue. Unlike any other state L explain that and eight o'clock the press conference from Barron county regarding up Jamie, close we're going to cover that live.

It wasn't like ninety million dollars or anything like that. It was enough that they could actually cobbling together and get the site unlocked and many many experts at seen at wired and the rest are saying that was probably a big mistake to do that that that effectively what that was was the equivalent of having your kid kidnapped and the kidnapper saying, we can do this real quick for five thousand bucks, but you can never ever report me to anyone. And so you go do it you get the kid back, and you don't warn the FBI or anyone that there's a guy out there kidnapping kids that this is settled very quickly, it'd probably shouldn't have been.
