Errol Morris on Dr. Strangelove
"I am delighted to be rejoined by the great morris. Thank you for being on the show. Thank you for having me on. This film feels of peace with The fog of war and the unknown to me these memory. Pieces with these elusive. Almost mythical characters. Why did you make this movie. One thing what you just said is music to my ears. I've been trying to explain in a number of interviews. I'm not exactly sure why part because it interests me the similarities between my psychedelic love story and the fog of war. So hearing you say it unprompted thank you. You're welcome picked up on that no absolutely The result of making certain oddball choices off of war. Came out of the entira tron my interviewing machine and this idea of first person storytelling. I'm not sure which came first. I think the entire tron came before this obsession with the first person although they kind of happened at the same time By phil mr death about an electric chair man and holocaust denier fred. Luter junior would have been an entire tron film save for the fact that the material became so controversial. It's really interesting. I wanted it to be one character film. But i couldn't because it involved holocaust denial as it turns out. I am a jew and i believe that the holocaust happened. I've never had any reason to doubt that it happened. But i've always. I've always been fascinated by people denying stuff because after all it seems to be a tickly now in our day and age it seems to be the central element of human existence. All you have to do is look at the results from this last presidential election. The understand that denial is sort of what we're all of our. When i made the fog of war it was my opportunity. I saw it as an opportunity. To really indulge in first person storytelling.
How Tall Is Mount Everest REALLY?
"Okay lauren fire. Today we are talking about mount everest. Which is the highest mountain on earth when you measure from sea level and today we're focusing on how that measurement is made weird we start. How about some old timey newsreel resort evidenced bothering his survey of eighteen hundred and forty one estimated his height pinton nine thousand feet back in the nineteenth century. When george everest brit was the surveyor general of india the used trigonometry to measure the height of the mountain like what we learned in middle school points angles and triangles totally. Yeah and incidentally the mountain got its english name from sir george everest but it was actually an indian mathematician. Radin seek dr. Who did most of the work and actually figured out that. This mountain is the highest point on earth. That sounds right for colonialism. Totally yeah okay. So how accurate was this trigonometry. Approach will i put that question to be nagaraj on. He's a geoscientist. One of george everest's successors at the survey of india office which still exists about is now staffed by indians. In fact i was sitting in the same chair. Our team location. Where you're sitting. Because i didn't want to change the room. So he says the trigonometry that his predecessors use throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries was surprisingly accurate. I mean the standard height. Everyone now uses for everest that twenty nine thousand twenty nine feet. It dates back to nineteen fifty five. Wow that's pretty impressive. Okay so how did they actually calculate that measurement for mountain like. Walk me through it. It was not easy. They measured it from eight different points throughout langdon distance and everything and computer and took the mean. It was a very difficult matter very heavy machines. Heavy machines called theod delights instruments used to measure angles between visit points on the horizon and vertical planes like a cross between a telescope and compass. You might have seen municipal surveyors using them sort of on a tripod. Oh ya know. I've seen those folks reflective vests and their little tripods them. Yes yeah okay. So but for measuring mountains. They are these big heavy versions. I don't know how many hundreds of kilograms they carried forward to make this measurement it has slowed colored most of the time we didn't know work so the foot that was put on. Who's very difficult nowadays. Nothing much what the chinese are doing. Our a nepalese are doing their hypic instrumentation with the chinese and the nepalese are doing now involves satellites so instead of measuring everest from afar on the horizon with these theod delight contraptions these send a team up to the top of the mountain with a hand held. Gps receiver hey. That sounds like a little easier to me. Maybe but maybe not. Here is d nash mandar. He's gps expert from nepal. Who teaches now at the university of tokyo. It's a very harsh environment. There that very windy and you have all these battery or power problems and like the people who climbed everest. They come steadier probably more than half an hour. I think that's limit for them because they already exhausted. So they've got thirty minutes to connect to multiple satellites because they are solar flares and interference. at altitude. You can't rely on just one reading and they have to measure the thickness of ice and snow underfoot because you wanna reading from the actual rocky mountain right and not the ice and so for that you need a ground penetrating radar so another piece of equipment to haul up the mountain. Yes oh fumbling. With all of that on top of everest. You've got wind. you've got your oxygen depleting. The clock is ticking and that is still the easy. Part monitor. Says because all of that data from the top of everest. It's only half the story. Yeah so you need to know from his point. And that's the biggest problem then need a reference somewhere but we don't have a seat difference in nepal because nepalis a landlocked country. It's land everywhere. The nearest sea level is in india. Sitting knew how high this mountain is you. I need to know how low sea levels and you need a reference point sea level which it turns out varies depending on where you are. Yeah i mean sea levels tricky right. It's not necessarily constant and climate change is really messing with sea level these days. Yeah and has monitor says there isn't even a cenex to so here's how they do it. They measure sea level in india at the bay of bengal at china's yellow sea at many other points hundreds of them to calculate the mean sea level. And then they figure out where sea level would be. if there were a ac- right next to everest o- okay and then you measure from there up to the peak. Oh no no. No you have to account for the shape of the earth bishop of the art okay. It's a live swyto very much. Swyto right the earth is elipsoid. Soil like a oval-shaped watermelon because of the earth rotation makes it kind of bulge slightly at the equator. Plus you have to account for how gravity effect sea level in different places around the world and mountains themselves affect gravity so the earth at sea level this invisible line along the earth's surface. It's actually like kind of lumpy. So you're telling me that we are standing on a lumpy elipsoid. That's exactly what i'm telling you. So sea level is actually not level at all and the next step. You got map. Those lumps essentially variations in the earth's gravitational force. And then you get the gop lead a. I'm sorry a joy d- yeah so the geo is the shape of the earth at sea level taking into account gravity and the planet's rotation. And now you follow that joy to appoint directly under everest. And that's what you use as a reference point for the mountains height okay so after all that sea levels gravity you finally get a reference point you take that you compare it to your. Gps measurement from the top of the mountain and you get everest height. Well not so fast. Because there's also these pesky plate tectonics oh my lord. This is harder than actually climbing everest. I'll say i'll say right now. Yeah yeah so. The mountains peak is variable to like and i'm not just talking ice and snow like the rock is actually moving. Sri daddy jaw is an engineer and expert on himalayan plate. Tectonics i have been field kinney. My philosophist been between behaviors and then ever asked is on the edge of two plates. The eurasian plate and the indian plate and j has measured how the indian plate is slipping underneath the eurasian plate and how that is pushing everest skyward measurements for last you. One point four million yearning threes in high. Like a few hundred years. We can only do bring Comes johnny has concluded that everest is gaining roughly a centimeter every ten years. So that's about a foot every three hundred years other scientists say that's far too conservative that the growth could be three times even four times that much but i mean however fast everest is rising. Things can happen very quickly to change that like earthquakes hung or at least they have in the past. So professor john day studied a nineteen thirty four quake that calculated took about sixty centimeters off the mountains height. So that's at least six hundred years of growth a raced in an instant and there's been another quake since in two thousand fifteen and we're not sure how that affected the height because there haven't been any definitive measurements since then so i'm guessing you're about to tell me it's time to remeasure mount everest. It is indeed so last year nepal sent up a team of scientists to do just that and this year with the climbing. Season cancelled for kelvin. China did the same and both countries have been analyzing their findings and their due to release the measurements pretty much any day. Now this is very exciting yes especially because most of the surveys of everest has been done by foreigners british colonial rulers. There was an american survey was an italian one and professor monitor. The gps expert from nepal says yes. He's motivated by science and the search for truth and all of this but you know also in part by the previous. Why don't we measure our own mountain and so nepal dead and we are waiting for those findings now. It may turn out to be taller shorter. Whatever the point though is that it's changing and that's what scientists say matters to them. Here's garage on the former survey of india guy again. I feel the joint will here. Shedding the knowledge will use the society beget understanding. What is there a big deal if you come and see okay. I'm announcing mall. Dividends did this much healthy that who cares you know because she missed the learning that teaching how people understand how do people perceive almost put in what model you used. Then be be happy if he's happy about what this tells us about. The earth overall the technology. They're fine tuning on. Everest has all these practical applications from agriculture to defense and scientists say if their research gets more eyeballs because it involves the tallest mountain in the world. Hey that's a great

Hawaii Wants to Lure Visitors---but Keep Out Covid-19
"Hawaii is riding out the covid. Nineteen storm but geographic isolation isn't the blessing it may seem by a. hundred algata when hawaii's corona virus infections were rising in late august. Honolulu mayor kirk caldwell visited doctors in the covid. Nineteen ward of the queen's medical center the state's largest hospital. I could see it in their faces and in their eyes caldwell says the concern and fear. They had that by the following week. If things didn't change they were not going to be able to care for people that they were going to have to put them intense outside. It was a crisis that leaders in the fiftieth state hoped they would never face between march and may when a stay at home order was in place. Hawaii was averaging only a couple of new cases every day but as some restrictions were lifted in june resulting in a patchwork of state and local rules. The numbers soon began inching up by late. July hawaii was metaphorically ablaze with the bulk of cases centered on oahu. Home to two thirds of the state's population. The island lost one hundred and nineteen. New cases underlie thirtieth by mid august. It was averaging over two hundred today four days after his hospital. Visit with more than three hundred and fifty people hospitalized for covid nineteen symptoms on his island issued a second lockdown order with the blessing of hawaii governor. David ige our hospital administrators had informed us. If we didn't do something that they would become overwhelmed says he gay three months later. It seems hawaii's response may have worked as a new deadly wave of coronavirus infections sweeps across the us. Hawaii is one of the only states in the country experiencing relative reprieve. It reported one hundred and thirteen new cases on november twenty third according to data from johns hopkins university slightly more than its weekly average of one hundred six daily new cases. Only vermont reported fewer cases that day hawaii the fortieth most populous state has a low case. Count even when adjusted for population as of november twenty third. It has a weekly average of seven cases per one hundred thousand residents the lowest in the country by comparison. The highest per capita figure is belong to north dakota at one sixty and wyoming at one fifty four infection levels in hawaii have stayed relatively steady since mid-september while nearly every other state has experienced an increase it remains to be seen whether a slight uptick in recent days could be the start of a new upward trend however how has a wii so far avoided another major covid nineteen surge. The clearest reason is apparent on any world map geography. It's so obvious yet. It plays such a big role says thomas lee. An assistant professor of epidemiology at the university of hawaii at manoa and co chair of the hawaii pandemic applied modeling workgroup. He also served as the lead outbreak. Modular and forecaster for the hawaii emergency management agency this spring for hawaii. The pacific ocean has helped serve as the world's biggest moat travelers arriving there by plane. Essentially the only means of reaching the state with cruise lines. Shuttered have since march required to self quarantine for two weeks though since mid-october visitors can avoid isolation if they test negative within seventy two hours of arrival while the rules may have kept visitors from seating new infection clusters. They have also devastated. Hawaii's tourism sector which accounts for nearly a quarter of its economic activity. Some hawaiian leaders. Still don't think they're doing enough to prevent infections part of a broader split among hawaiians over whether and how to welcome visitors back during a pandemic derek kawakami mayor of quite county says new infections on his islands are related to the reopening of travel from the continental us. He's proposed a requirement that travelers get tested a second time after arriving. This virus requires layer upon layer of intervention and mitigating measures. Kawakami says we have to be able to respond quickly and boldly because it can spread like wildfire kawais. Recent uptick is tiny in relative terms on november twentieth. It reported six cases. Its second highest one day count so far but kawakami has good reason to be worried koci home to around. Seventy two thousand people has just nine. Icu beds and fourteen ventilators. Isolated and with limited healthcare capacity and uncontrolled. Outbreak could quickly spell disaster. The holy grail is prevention. So that is what we put our blood sweat and tears into here on kobe. Kawakami says we're almost always on the red line. A similar imperative applies across the entire state of one point. Four million people with nowhere to turn of hawaii's healthcare system is overwhelmed leaders. There have little choice but to be proactive. In preventing covid nineteen outbreaks. We are geographically remote and so our healthcare system is really vulnerable says catherine purple an associate professor of health policy and management at the university of hawaii minoa there really is a strong motivating factor to try to keep those numbers under control. Hawaii's isolation then is a double edged sword. Thousands of miles of ocean are a good tool to stop travelers from seating new corona virus clusters but if infection spin out of control anyway. Assistance could be a long time coming. We have been from the very beginning focused on the science and public health recommendations because we are twenty five hundred miles away from any help. Says the governor. We learned a long time ago. That we have to be self reliant and that we have to act as a community epidemiologists say it's difficult to attribute hawaii's relative covid nineteen success to any one factor isolation included for one thing cold weather which is forcing many americans indoors where the virus can spread. More easily is unheard of in most of hawaii. Honolulu's thanksgiving day forecast is eighty two and sunny. Other government measures may also have played a part unused hotel rooms and a wa who have been repurpose to isolate nineteen patients and restrictions on inter island. Travel have prevented. Local spread mask wearing has helped as well on kauai and a who mask. Mandates were instituted in april while an august survey found that ninety. Six percent of hawaiians are masking up. Unlike for many americans. Wearing masks to prevent illness isn't an entirely foreign concept for hawaiians public health experts. Say that's likely due to the states relative proximity to asia where facial coverings tend to be more prevalent. Many hawaii residents. Who commented for this article also cited the state's heritage and cultural values as a reason for high adherence to public health mandates. We have a culture here that comes from the first people's the native hawaiians called ball says the term juliana means responsibility and it does the people here in hawaii still leaders in hawaii have come under pressure over cove nineteen restrictions caldwell says people sometimes drive down his street to yell outside his house either at him or his wife and daughter. Some people certainly have reason to be upset. Travel restrictions have ravaged the state's tourism dependent economy hawaii's overall unemployment rate was more than fourteen percent in october according to the us department of labor the worst in the country for the second month in a row called bo says he understands people's frustrations but needs to prioritize. Public health. people are impacted. Their businesses are impacted. their life dreams are impacted. He says. I get why they're upset. But i also believe that in order to protect health and safety which is always the most important thing that comes first. And i think it's tied directly to the economy to after months of travel restrictions. Guy says the state's pretrial testing program finally bringing in visitors and helping hawaiians get back to work while keeping cova level stable still. Despite hawaii's current low case counts it remains to be seen if the state's leaders can revive tourism based economy while at the same time staving off a devastating rise in cases which would likely put the tourism business back on ice anyway depend on travel. Uk says but everyday day. I get comments from members in our community that continuing to bring visitors into hawaii during this time is really putting our community at risk. It's something that weighs very heavily on myself. And the mayor's every day as we see the virus counts increasing on the mainland.
California prosecutors say inmates fraudulently applied for stimulus money and may have cost the state $1 billion
"The morning off. Unbelievable is the word used to describe the staggering unemployment check fraud scheme taking place behind bars all across California. CBS is Tim Ryan explains live help. Prosecutors suspect jailed inmates have fraudulently collected hundreds of millions of dollars in phony claims with the state's employment development Department, Tim Dan from County jails to death row, Tens of thousands of inmates received unemployment checks behind bars. Prosecutors say Ah, fraud totaling hundreds of millions of dollars, if not a billion was so rushed to get the money to people which you can understand, just didn't do the work and provide the security and the identification that's necessary to do it right. And those hundreds of millions of dollars of guns, progeny only tow people in prison. Hopefully they can get that money back. State Senator Jerry Hill of San Matteo is chaired hearings on the E D.

The Molly Bish Case
"Molly bish was born on august. Second nineteen eighty three to parents. John bish senior a probation officer and magi bish an elementary school teacher in her early childhood. Molly her parents and her siblings. Heather and john junior lived in detroit michigan but when a young woman was abducted in their neighborhood while walking home from work and was later found murdered. They decided to move the bish family left detroit and moved to warn massachusetts a small community which they thought would be a much safer place to raise children in the summer of two thousand molly. Bish was a bright and well liked sixteen year old honor student and accomplished athlete and she was about to start her first job. Molly began work as a lifeguard at commons pond. A local man made swimming area surrounded by a forest. Her older brother john junior had been a lifeguard there and molly took over his position on the morning of june twenty seventh two thousand at nine. Am molly woke too bad news. One of her soccer team mates had been hit by a car while biking to work and was in critical condition. Molly was worried and upset but she had only been on the job for eight days and it was the first day of swim lessons at the pond. Somali decided that she go to work. Molly and her mother maggie headed out to commons pond. At nine fifty. Am they stopped by convenience store to pick up some water bottles their next stop. Was the police station where they picked up the required two way radio. This was necessary as there were no telephones at commons pond. The radio was the only way for the lifeguards to contact police or emergency assistance. If someone needed help just before ten. Am they arrived at the pond. Molly told her mother that she loved her left the car and made her way to her lifeguard post. Just before the first swimmers of the day arrived as the first people started to arrive at the pond. A mother noticed that there was no lifeguard on duty. When she approached mali's station she found her backpack a towel draped on the chair her whistle her sandals and the first aid kit which was open assuming that molly had wandered off with her friends and with swimming lessons having started. The mother sat in the lifeguards. Chair and assumed mali's duties for the rest of the lesson. She then informed the parks. Commissioner and mali's boss and that there was no lifeguard on duty at eleven forty four. Am when molly hadn't returned. Ed coke police. It had been just three hours since she dropped off her daughter at work. When molly's mother maggie received the phone call.

Challenges Await Next Treasury Head
"Former federal reserve chair janet yellen has been at the forefront of us economic policy for decades. If she's confirmed as treasury secretary she'll be taking on a new role during a time of deep political division and significant economic challenges. Joining me now to talk more about yellen's career and the roadblocks she could face going forward his wall street journal senior writer john hills and wrath. Hi john thanks for being here her. They're great to be here. So john janet yellen if confirmed would make history here as the first woman to lead the treasury after also being the first woman to lead the federal reserve. Tell us more about her extensive resume and what's led up to this moment. I don't think that's the big history being made here. The big history is that she's the first human regardless of gender to be treasury secretary chairman of the council of economic advisers and federal reserve chairwoman. So she's had a tri factor. If you add in the fact that she's also a tenured professor from berkeley then. She's hit a grand slam. This is an achievement that no person regardless of gender has achieved and the realm of economic policy. Making you know. I compare her to george shultz the republican. Who served as secretary of state for ronald reagan and also treasury secretary secretary of labor and director of management budget under richard nixon. This is just a person with about as complete resumes. You can get so. Let's talk a little bit about her previous roles as opposed to what treasury secretary rigby much less political role than treasury secretary. What about her past experiences in washington have prepared her for that. And where might we see some challenges if for her taking on a more political role. The fed is a very close in academic place. They kind of pride themselves on not getting into the mix of political debates and being. I wouldn't even say bipartisan. But eighty partisan nonpartisan. Janet yellen did serve as the chair of the council of economic advisers in the clinton administration in the late nineteen ninety s so. She has had exposure to political debates with big personalities. It's interesting though. She's married to george echo off. Who is a nobel prize winning economist in his own right and when he won the nobel prize back in two thousand and one he wrote in his autobiography about the challenges that she faced kind of managing the point ical heat waves of washington the role. He played in supporting her so she's walking in to an environment right now. That is going to be very heated in very point ical. There's gonna be a lot of fights over how much spending the government should do to get the economy out of recession and how much debt it should take on in the process. And she's going to be right in the middle of it. She's a very highly credentialed individual. And i think our challenge is going to be managing the human part of it the political part of it with republicans on capitol hill and the inevitable divisions that are gonna show up inside the biden administration itself. How do you think she will work with congress. She has support among democrats and republicans. Well you know. She knows her way around washington. That's clear and as fed chair. She did have to deal with congress. She had to go up there and testify on a regular basis to give reports on the economy and monetary policy and regulatory policy. So she knows her way around capitol hill one of the reasons that i think that president elect biden chose her is a because it does seem like she's going to have buy in from the progressive wing of the democratic party. She's actually very close to elizabeth warren and also moderates among democrats and then i would say she has a chance with some moderate republicans to try to win them over republicans in the senate in particular to try to win them over on some big debates. And that's where. I think she's going to end up focusing a lot of her attention. You know if she can hold the democratic party if i should say biden can and then win a couple of middle of the road republicans than they might be able to get their way on really big questions about fiscal policy and stimulus and driving this economy out of recession. That was really devastating and twenty twenty and that brings us to some of the key challenges. What do you think some of her first actions will be treasury secretary. And what are those big challenges. She'll be facing from the start. There's so much and this is one of the issues where the job. The treasury is much different than the job at the fed. The job at the fed comes down to two or three things. They gotta make a decision. Every eight weeks about whether interest rates should stay the same or go up a little or go down a little. And then they've got to be they're very involved in the regulation and oversight of banks and then they've got to be ready to deal with crises financial crises at the treasure. You have the tax portfolio you have sanctioned portfolio with international sanctions against countries like north korea and iran. You have the debt portfolio. You have some say in the budget. Portfolio is just a very wide and expansive portfolio. I think the first thing that she's going to confront is a decision that her predecessor will have made. Steven mnuchin called on the fed just a few days ago to end some rescue programs that were aimed at small and medium-sized businesses related to corona virus. The treasury had been designated some money to contribute to the fed program and secretary mnuchin said. The program had expired in the feds gutter return. What's left of the money but you know the new treasury secretary is going to have to decide whether the end that program as mnuchin has set out to do or renew it when that gets to the bigger issue. which is the economy itself. Is it a major crossroads right now. We had a devastating downturn the economy effectively shut in march and april it reopened. We had a very large bounce back in the summer. But it shows signs of slowing. And it's incomplete this recovery at a time when the corona virus is spreading again. Some states are putting in new restrictions on economic activity and there is a race for a vaccine to control the virus. So there's just so much happening right now and it's gonna be yelling role to guide. President elect biden on how hard the government should push to help the economy through a period where it can go one of two directions. It could go back into recession. Or if we get to vaccine quickly enough we could be into. You know a really strong extension of the recovery that we had earlier this summer. So there's just a lot of uncertainty and a lot hard choices to
Biden to pick Janet Yellen for Treasury secretary
"On the economic side. Meanwhile the the big Appointment that has been announced so far is made new. So far is janet yellen for treasury secretary. Yellen goes back away. She was chair of a president. Clinton's council on economic advisers and then did long service at the federal reserve and on one hand. Jason it's not elizabeth warren who reportedly wanted the treasury secretaries job but the issue raised in the journal's editorial today is the question of the fed's independence and i'll just a line here The royal says Museology worked with current fed chairman. Jerome powell during the obama years and they are likely to form a mind meld. Fiscal and monetary policy.

Nato supreme allied commander retired four-star navy. Admiral james redis. He is chief. International security diplomacy and less for nbc news and msnbc and former treasury official on morning joe economic analyst. Steve rattner joins us as well. Good to have you both admiral. Let's begin with some of president-elect biden's foreign policy selections the wall street journal opinion page said. They were internationalists but also said on the other. Hand talking about blinken and Jake sullivan they were also more hawkish. On some obama era debates. Mr sullivan supported antitank mrs for ukraine which president obama posed. Mr blinken favored the iraq war in two thousand and two intervention in libya. Mr blanket was known for repeating the mantra superpowers. Don't bluff regarding mr obama's red line fiasco about the use of chemical weapons and syria. I would take that like me. You you agree. Superpowers don't bluff. You don't draw red line and then step back from it. And apparently that's what our new secretary of state Believes as well. Well let's start with the team itself kind of step back for a minute show and this is the most experience group coming in That i can remember certain going back to bush lawn and before that maybe to the kennedy administration if you listen to the titles that make it. Just read off deputy to this deputy to that do this. These are now people who are stepping up to cabinet level. They are experienced. They are well prepared boy. How refreshing is that number two and maybe more importantly joe. This is a very collegial team. This he'll give you a sports analogy. This one's for mike barnicle. This is like the one thousand nine hundred eighties celtics basketball team. They don't really care who. The high score is more interested in getting assists that running up the score out there on the field trying to make each other look good. It's that kind of group. And i worked with all of them when i was supreme allied commander in. They were in all their jobs. And then finally. You're absolutely right. This is an internationalist group. A little bit of hawkish edge to it. But i think that's okay one. It's tempered as you see from this group by that that instinctive desire to reach out into the international world. They'll look for allies. They'll look for coalitions. They'll look to work with international organizations. I think this is a a fine selection and will serve the nation. Well
How The Flying Fahans Got Started In Aviation
"I'm joined today by very famous. Couple job the margaret and joe fan who were delta pilots flew together numerous times and they retired together. It is so great having you with us today. Thanks for taking the time. It's nice to be here. thanks for talking with us. You're welcome so so. Who is flying the longest. I'm older by about four years. Okay so we'll start with you joe. How did you get your start in aviation you know. I wanted to be a pilot since i was a little kid. And when i got to be about fifteen. I started getting my parents to drop me off the local airport and eventually got a job as a line boy there and spend all my money taking lessons. There's just that simple so back. Then how much did it cost to take lessons. Well kids today are going to hate me for saying this. I flew a brand new one. Seventy two with an instructor for twenty dollars. An hour into european itself was fourteen dollars an hour. The instructor was six and it was a struggle back. Then because i'm making that dollars seventy five bucks an hour whatever. The minimum wage was then. So you know it's it's increased by about tenfold. Since since i did that but there people people paying over two hundred dollars an hour for a general aviation airplane with instructor. My private pilot licence cost me all eight hundred dollars. Well that's were great. How about you. How did you get your story. Well my mom and dad are from germany and we used to fly to germany every summer to visit family so for me the best part of the vacation was actually the flight and i just know i had to do something with airplanes later on in life and When i was sixteen. I was dating a boy that my dad wasn't particularly fond of so he thought my dad had flown gliders in world war two at the end of the war so he thought if margaret had a hobby maybe she spend less time with boyfriend and more time with the hobbies so he took me to the glider airport in the area and He got reso- load. And i started flying taking lessons and it just took off from there that is very cool so interesting parroting those is really good parent yes. He has a better story than i do off. So so joe. Did you start earning money right away after you got your license. Well private commercial instrument. And then i became a flight instructor and i was teaching for a couple years. I guess that's my first paid flying job and college was in there too taught in college and then got your later. I got hired by a little commuter airline in southern new jersey southern jersey airways honors for five years or so and seven for almost a year and went on with the airlines so that was kind of a straight shot so when you interviewed with delta did they have the shrink with a rocking chair. Well actually we're. We didn't come that way. We were a northwest pilots. Oh okay all right actually. Yeah we required. Margaret margaret was actually a pilot for republic airlines and i was a pilot for northwest so we merged as choir twice. She was margaret. Tell us about how you got Started getting paid to fly well. Once i started taking lessons at all i wanted to do was be at the airport. Talk to people at the airport. You learn all. I could so i started working out there. I worked at the office. And then i worked on the line to Being that it was a glider airport. There were several line called them lined boys but there were lying girls. You had to hook up the toro to the glider and then run the wing as the toll. Plane drag glider off. So i did whatever. I could to You help pay for lessons and back then you got to know the instructors. So you traded washing their cars for instruction you've got a cheaper rate on the glider rental Got a little discount of the toe. So as soon as i could i started flying and earning money to pay for lessons. Surely you a glider rating before you got a power rating. Yes you could back then solo. I think it was fifteen. Get your license at sixteen in glider. So you could get your commercial glider license that eighteen and you could give rides and you know what we call the introductory lessons. I got my flight instructor. Rating is flight instructed in gliders before i got my private airplane well that is very cool and never flown gliders but i understand that that's the best way to learn to fly. Start with gliders. I think so i think so. You're tells me that all the time

That's now ourselves REM SO after. Var? And this week. We've got a pretty interesting episode. I mean every episode is, but we're going to be jumping on lot of the government shutdown craziness that we've been covering on the show recently on Monday. Yeah. I think it was Monday. We covered the fake BuzzFeed article talking about the deaths at national parks that were not result of the government shutdown and just yesterday. What we did was we talked a little bit about say a worker sewer just deciding not to show up to work. So we'll cover a little bit of that. And so much more this week. We have our awesome guests friend of about three years now, Mr. Alex Mercedes, Alex what's going on, man. The show man how the bins been good. It's it's been real as real as life gets folks. Those vita don't know Alex is. He he's ran for so many public offices. I tend to lose track base currently the vice chair of the libertarian party and not to play identity politics. But he's probably the most influential let's libertarian and the country because of this, and that's right for like, no one who really gives a crap about Marco Rubio. Who really gives a crap about Marco Rubio? He hasn't done anything since he's walked in the Senate. So you could take his spot and Ted Cruz Canadian. So I guess you. I guess you're Alex, I guess those are the that's quite via role. I gotta play. But what I do. So each just recently came out with a book profits or generosity. What what why do you think? This was something you had to come out with now because with the title that it seems like, you know, everyone's jumping on the whole socialism train evil profits are what caused everything bad in the world to happen. What's what's going on? Why? Now, why this book? It's something that I think about for a while like the term profits generosity was something. I coined about a little bit over a year ago when the whole rent, this theft thing was come around, and I did this whole video, but how rent is not. And I thought about how profits generosity onto preneurs ship is philanthropy and kind of laboratory on that. But I felt that seeing that was such important point that I wanted to make sure I got it down. But also one of the kind of put it in a very condensed format that, you know, someone who made honestly be warm to libertarian ideas or fee market, ideas may not necessarily spend time reading eighty pages hundred pages two hundred I wanted something that was really conduct that you can read like them. It's really breaks all the ideas doesn't necessarily kind tell you what your conclusion should be.

"And Furthermore, you look like you're twelve why would anyone ever higher twelve year old to cover the news? So basically beat it get lost. You have no shot. And he just ranted at me. And it was at that moment. I was like petrified. I'm sure I didn't say anything. I was just too shocked, but I hung up the phone, and I don't know if it was immediately. But soon thereafter is like, well, wait a minute. This guy doesn't know me. He doesn't know what I made of. And it kinda brought out resiliency in me, and frankly, maybe a resilient sated, no hack. I called him every day. And I'm I'm especially that I was really shy person. But there was just something like you. I wanna have a hearing. I want you to acknowledge I exist. So one of the things that I'm fascinated by is you just said, you're shy person. And you've talked a lot about being an introverted leader. And that's been a big inspiration to Danielle. And I because our team never believes this, but we're actually both really shy people. And I think the heart one of the hardest things in doing our jobs is. Being kind of putting yourself out there to constantly meet new people to be the face of your brand or be the leader that that rallies people. And what I'm asking to by as you know, we always say we were producers for reason like it was hard for us. We didn't want to be on camera. But like you actually wanted you were trying to get a reporter job. So how do you reconcile the shyness in you to kind of aggressively pursuing role? It's a great question. I had no idea that I'd actually have to perform do that in front of the camera. Honestly back then I think I thought there were only two jobs in television, you either in front of the camera or the camera person. I had no idea until I ended up getting to NBC seeing just the range of things. So I don't think I thought that far ahead to be honest. You are no longer the the novice wannabe reporter it worked out for you little bit so Lakas through how you when you got your first leadership position when you got to NBC like how did that happen? Yeah. Well, I my first leadership position came when I actually I left NBC because I had a really. Jerk for a boss, and he was what I call a classic gatekeeper. And after trying a lot of different things to say can we work differently? Basically, it was like what are you know? And I left and went to C N N Turner. That was my first leadership job where I got to oversee a team. I think there were eight of us, and I didn't know what I was doing. It was you know, it was daunting that was my first leadership job. And there was no training manual. I none of the media companies. I work for frankly, in retrospect, did anything really to train you as a manager of people. You just kinda had to figure it out. I think that's so interesting. Your path is you've done you've had so many different roles who started off as like wanting to be a reporter than you went into comes role than obviously g into marketing marketing, and then as vice chair, I actually don't really know what that means. Let's start what is vice chair yet? Well, I it it g vice show was as much a recognition of a career path every vice chair has a different portfolio. Mine was business innovation which meant I was. I was there to lead. New new new businesses so businesses either we invested in seeded or turned around so looking for new revenue from new sources and marketing was my path to get there. So from communications really became promotion, especially in the news world, you're promoting people to watch your news. And from there got into advertising and marketing, and that that became a path to innovation it may sound strange because most people think of marketing is just what you do at the end. It's the ad. It's the trade show when in fact for us the opportunity was to bring marketing to the beginning. It was about the insights in the market. Where's the market going? So became a trend job. It became a innovation job pretty quickly. Because hey, we have existing things. We can just target them to new customers. We can drive revenue anew way. So it was pretty it. Sounds like it would be weird..

"Why you should care if someone new joins the Federal Reserve Board? I'm David Brancaccio in New York. I like to point out that the policy decision, the single policy decision that affects every woman man and child in America is when the fed changes the cost of borrowing by fiddling with interest rates. So it's relevant. I think to all of us when the Federal Reserve gets not just a new board member, but a new vice chair. Richard Clarita is was confirmed by the Senate yesterday he's an academic unlike fed chair. Jerome Powell marketplace's, Nancy. Marshall. Genzer has more Richard Clarita is managing director at depan firm pimco. He's also an economics professor at Columbia University. Clarita was an assistant Treasury Secretary during the administration of George W Bush. He's researched monetary policy, interest rates and exchange rates as fed vice chair. He'll be second in command to fed chair. Jerome Powell who has extensive experience in the financial markets, but not academe like pow Clarita is expected to support. It more interest rate hikes, which President Trump has said. He's not thrilled with chirp. Powell has said repeatedly that the fed makes interest rate decisions based on what's right for the economy, not politics, but President Trump will leave his Mark on the fed board. He'll appoint six out of seven members in his first term. Three of his nominees have been confirmed. Two more are waiting, and there's still one more open seat. Marketplace's, Nancy, Marshall genzer on the fed beat out of our Washington bureau. Now, let's do the gross domestic product. Yeah, there's news. The US economy grew at a four point, two percent annualized growth rates spring into summer. That's a slight upward revision of what was already a strong quarter. David, Kelly is chief global strategist at j. p. Morgan funds. He says, fine, but has his sights firmly on the current quarter is great to see a quarter of four point, two percent growth. I mean, basically the American economy's a tortoise. Now you had, you know, got this burst of sugar and did a bit of sprinting in the second quarter. We've got this four point, two percent growth, but when we look at what's going on in the third quarter, you know, housing starts is so down. Auto sales basically stole dad. So I think rose going to return to about two percent for the third quarter. So you know a little bit of a sprint out of the economy here, but I don't think it's gonna last since you stay. So essentially we should perhaps for guard the spring into summer quarter second quarter as kind of a fluke. Yes, I think so. I mean, we had some very weird trade numbers which which contributed a lot to this. Now we actually think the trades going to be a drag on the economy going forward. As as our imports go up more than our exports. So I think the economy is so down again, but that's okay. You know, this is an old expansion two. We're in its tenth year, so I really don't want the economy to run to house right now. If it did, we'd have more problems. All right. And we're in that second half David Kelly at j.p Morgan funds.

"Well as a major nfl fan i think that the anniversary i if you can't guess from the accident you take your achievement ready for there is a particular team rooting for and it is the new england patriots so i happen to be with the right team at the right time but i should say i've had season tickets since 1980's six so i've been through the tough years but i i think that the it got confusing for the consumer with the nfl last year i think they were on too many networks they started to commoditisation experience and not really keep it you know is something that was really special on sundays on thursday's you didn't know what network it was found on i think they had a lot of social issues that they were dealing with whether it was the concussion issue a domestic violence made a big mistake taking tom brady out of the four games at the beginning of the year is out there who weren't playing and i think that you know for the league that wasn't necessarily a good decision cbs by the way is one of the companies pushing thursday night football is good but you have told me play isn't it they if you really want from me if i wanna watch the patriots i will always find where they are if it's thursday night and there's not a particular game i'm watching the first thing i'm gonna do is say hey let me watch thursday night football but if i see something on my way to the football game i might not watch that so i think for it just got too much too many stations too many networks and i do believe that some of the stars weren't there in the beginning of the year but i think it's a great franchise it's going to get stronger i heard that the games are longer that taking a look at that that taking a look at the refereeing process that taking a look at making some more changes in the game to speed it up.
