Do It yourself or designing and building these standalone getaways themselves others are purchasing stylish prefabricated tiny buildings and that's boosting growth for some existing shed companies and sparking some entrepreneurs to start new companies to fill the sudden demand among them modern shed studio shed, and the one with our favorite name.

The opportunity to build a separate fully electrified heated and air conditioned office in your yard is a privilege that many just don't have for one building an extra room in the yard requires you to have a yard begin with still it's typically far cheaper than adding a room to your house. Those costs can run more than one hundred, thousand dollars at kangaroo. Systems Kangaroo get a prefab builder out of Waco Texas. The cost of their smallest unit called Quick Room starts at five thousand dollars. Modern sheds prices started about ten thousand for a one hundred square foot shed not surprisingly prices begin climbing as customers expand the size and especially the charm of the buildings at a bathroom in your budget expands further that said privacy is obviously valuable these days which accounts for the sales growth prefab shed companies have been experiencing since.

How do you sell 5G in the middle of a pandemic?
"The last five months, the crow virus has shut down. The economy is kept many of us, stuck at home. Adding the fact that millions of people outta jobs disposable income is what it used to be. Years from Verizon's perspective. How do you sell five G. Environment? This is a technology that spoke promises to give you a high speed connection on the go. All of us aren't on the go anymore Where is the benefit of five g? You know it's it's it's an interesting. Question because you know we'd plan plan planned, and then all of a sudden nobody saw this come in and it's different but so there's some downsides to it but then there's also some upsides to it as well. I we have not seen. The demand for a fixed wireless access product like we are right now and you know we've we've been limited in what we can do from a forty perspective. With respect to fixed wireless access just because Waco talking about before Kinda bandwidth limitations. You know now is we put more band without they report millimeter wave out there that'll open up some some potential for more fixed wireless access tied. Products that we can offer to people you know, and that's GonNa come in Handy for for people you know especially in the covid environment if they're working from home, they can't go to get a good broadband connection. You can use wireless for you know underserved underprivileged folks we can use my fi and people can get on the on on websites or do their schoolwork. So we think there's a good opportunity They are some of the sales folks told me if I if I had blanket coverage millimeter wave everywhere they really be crushing it with fixed pilots access. Fisher be able to get gigabits of service on on a on a laptop wirelessly. Would you typically do at home with a normal Internet connection? So so we see we see opportunity there on the other side of it. You know we've put in some. You know in stadiums, we put some five G. millimeter wave deployments around the country We really showed it off at super bowl the capabilities there. But largely the those stadiums they're empty right now. So but we do believe that the people come back there and we're working. We're still working on the use cases in things that can really augment. People's experiences when they do return to stadiums. while. That's a good point I mean there are you have the pieces in place to make this work when society goes back normal? Problem is we don't really know when that will actually happen. And know curious to see what is what demand looks like right now, four five devices I know the element, some folks WanNA feature proof themselves won't be ready five G. What it's. Broadly available go out again but there's also the other element that folks are watching what they're spending a lot more right now there's a lot of uncertainty out there and so what are you seeing in terms of customer demand? You know I think there's maybe a better question at Ronin are are the CEO who runs our or consumer division can answer. But I I know for sure he's he sees good demand for five G.. Devices. I believe there's a staff that we've. We've sold the the most five G. Devices and I do think it's it's people probably early adopters people want to see the first. The first of its kind and. The promise we have to those folks as we continue to grow the network new capabilities will come on and as they do you'll be you'll start avail yourself of those no Serbs this and we're working closely with the application developer ecosystem so that they're developing things that will be able to leverage the what we call the currencies, really the capabilities if you will of what five G. Networks will bank. So we continue on we don't believe cove this last forever. And you know. But there's also other opportunities that we see that could five G. can help move. For example factories you know if you get more automation factories, you get a good millimeter way five G. system in. That is much more robust than safe current system. You may be able to do things more efficiently in in a factory. So those are those are things will work with customs on right now, that's a good segue because I know five G. isn't just about higher speech your phone, there is a lot more to five G.. I'm curious what you think the applications are five that specifically would help alleviate some of the issues we're having right now other telemedicine whether it's remote worker. What are some of the opportunities I know you talked about home broadband as one option but where some of the other opportunities out there? Yeah. I mean there's some the opportu while it's funny. So we you know we both ever landline network in wireless network and Bailey we're talking about wireless ear but on the landline side net to some extent on the wireless side, we've been monitoring every day I look at how what normal was before our networks are being. Utilized in wear geographically spread and looking at applications and so so what's happening gaming is huge game the growth of gaming like skyrocketed. It's actually come down a little bit because I think people figured out how to work from home. Initially, it was probably a little bit of a honeymoon period therapy were probably play more games we seem to come down, but it's still way high video applications now, everybody. Now, if you go back before pandemic, sure I knew how to use a Webex and maybe one other now I know like five different video things and video is going to be I think very important. In the future of five G. Because you're going to bring in things like Ar Vr. And Computer Vision Technology and you know. L. Type scenario so you can use computer vision to do different things. All of these kind of things require really. Snappy fast interfaces and really low latency. Scenarios all of which what five jails are wide brand band can bring people. Specific example you talked about telehealth I think that's we think there's going to be that's going to grow a lot I think just by virtue of people don't WanNa go to a doctor. people volve figure out ways to do things at home working right now with a firm that is using five G. along with our MAC. That we just announced they ws so they're able to really do edge computing and some. Run machine learning models out at the EDGE TO GET REAL TIME results. An an operating room. So with polyps and stuff, it makes it much easier for for these folks to operate 'cause right now, what they do is they have large server farms running these models in their hospitals that's costly. They break maintaining him as tough. If you could take all of that away, you can run these things in the cloud more effectively. That's good for everybody so good for the patients go to the hospital and. Moves things along. So it's it's really things like that. Like you said, if we just make this a snappier phone, that's that's really not what we're going for. We're going for one or new inputs, interfaces new experiences had you make things more efficient and it goes across the whole board of the economy we feel. So I'm really excited to see how this evolves and what. People will use these currencies, capabilities, new and stuff, and I can't wait to.
The Migrant Student Club
"Eddie? Lurk Tech's says is a small city just north of the US Mexico border. This CD seats on the outskirts of mcallen, the Rio Grande Valley, and the land of here is wide and flat. Except over and sugarcane season and the fields full of workers. Among the farm fields in new housing developments, seats Edinburgh High School. It's a sprawling campus of two thousand, five, hundred students. A. An inside the. In a conference room with no Windows Group of eight young people gather around folding tables. Everyone here has one thing in common while other kids to spend their summer vacations going to come or at the community pool these students migrated north to working every cultural fields. who wants to go for a few and they are all members or former members of the migrant student club at Edinburgh. High. They gathered today to share their stories. My Name is David and I'm seventeen right now on voter turn eighteen on Sunday. Thank you. David, is a smile young men with shaved hair in the sites and he tells the room his honor working in. Michigan's Blueberry and Strawberry Fields, WACO four, five, six in the morning and okay let's go make yourself a tackle because that's all the time that we have for, and so we would go out and it's long and it's hard I mean to stick your hand inside the bushes you'd have to wear long sleeve. long-sleeve because you rip your shirt, rip your skin. You know he says, he thought he was pretty quick worker until he met other migrant workers I thought I was really fast I was like you know what like I'm a young guy I'm going to be able to be like really really fast this you know like these guys got nothing on me. I'd finish one bucket and the next me finish all six. Right. Next to David is Leslie and she's a former student. My parents have been migrant workers on my life. I was two months old when they first started migrating. Iowa she actually graduated in two thousand and seeks and went on to become a nurse. But she talks about how going to classes a migrant farm worker was a struggle. Especially switching between her school in Texas and her school in Iowa I felt. So out of place because I these weren't my friends, it wasn't the people I was used to. Me and everybody looked at me like what are you doing here? You don't belong with us. It's hard. It's very difficult to go back and forth you can't take the same classes you're never with the same people. That was hard. But I'm on a young men in red t shirt is on the other side of the table he chimes the in. One of. The younger ones there. This is my mother. Many of the students or former students came here today with her mothers. They wanted to give us a full picture of what being in a migrant worker family is like and we've been going to work for a good while like a family tradition. Once you turn thirteen, my grandfather would take you and warm weather will join us and they would take us up and we'd go. Work in Minnesota North Dakota but since I was a little bit on the short side, I had to wait until I was thirteen, and then when I was thirteen, then I was able to join them. He still remembers his bare you first year starting out in Fargo North. Dakota, when he realized the farmer dealing use pesticides and I thought that was cool until I realized that that meant like all the weeds and all the. Everything that didn't belong there. We had to take out by ourselves. So. That was a tough year to have as the first year because that year alone. The farmers like all of the weeds must go and since I was really new either didn't know what was weed or what was
9 Dumb Financial Decisions Most People Make
"Brian, I'm so excited about this show because we're going to basically do a deep dive into behavioral finance into behavioral economics because a lot of what we cover are like it's blocking and tackling it's XS and os when it comes to financial decision making. But a lot of what we do when we make financial decisions has more to do with the behavior than academic nature of and that's kind of what we're going to go through what I'm hoping everybody who watches doesn't treat this as a coping mechanism. Oh, that's why I'm like that is because it's baked into the recipe. No, this is supposed to. Be something where you learn to spot what's going on because this is baked into the recipe, but there is a way for you to kind of master move beyond and figure out how you can harness the power of some of these things that are just influences that can drive your your your actions and your behavior. Absolutely. So there's two books that kind of influence show and and a lot of ways bow claims he has not read this book, but I it because everytime I when I was doing the Chris Voss book, they'll never split the difference. He's an FBI guy who was a negotiator and Use a lot of these tactics. Here's the thing. So back in the day, we'll talk a lot about back in the day you and I shared inaudible account well, frankly tightwad and you had good taste and books. This was in your but I never read this. I'm not I'm not familiar 'cause it always listening to it. I was like. That son of a gun, bow this is I can totally see when he's tried to use this on me but it just to tell you what Chris explains is that the FBI reconized after Waco Texas you know did not go well, they need to throw the book out on how they were handling hostage negotiations and other things like that. He goes into all the different behavioral components and here's what. was. What I am saying is that while our decisions may be largely irrational that doesn't mean there aren't consistent patterns, principles and rules behind how we act and once you know these mental patterns, you start to see ways to influence them. So I think the takeaway there is that human beings always act in a rational manner. We're not completely rational beings that this is a black decision this decision, this is the right decision. This is the wrong decision that's not the way that we always behave even though it seems like perhaps that. Should be the way we behave in. Syria, we should be rational functioning beings, but it just doesn't work that way and that led to you know there's the misbehaving book by Richard Thaler, which is the making of behavioral economics. Now, what's funny is if you go watch any of the interviews, Richards very quick to tell you hey I'm not the first person up with behavioral, economics actually Adam Smith, which anybody who follows me matter of fact we had a content meeting and I was because I had to give. Rabia. Whole educate low. Is huge to me I. Go last year I can remember my daughter. When she's doing her social studies when I found that they were studying. Adam Smith it made me so happy because Russia's the timing of when wealth of nations was published in the seventeen hundreds with the birth of America I don't think it's a coincidence. So there's a lot of things in in Adam Smith when he talks when he in a lot. of his writings including wealth of nations he does talk about overconfidence he does talk about loss aversion self control. So I thought it was cool that Richard gave them a shout out. But if you go deeper, Richard is going to give you examples of things that are happening. Everybody's life that are definitely influenced by behavioral economics and I think it's realistic that. We all think about money irrational even if we can be the most educated most well informed, we all approach it in somewhat of irrational manner. So. Let's jump into this I, want to set the stage for you guys. So you'll know I'm a big Disney Fan. Kind of missing going to the Disney parks because we were supposed to have done that in the spring we're going out to Disneyland and one of my favorite things when you're at Disney well I thought would be one of my favorite things a mirage. Was You get hungry and you're walking through the parking catch a whiff. Oh my gosh. That is the best smelling food that I could put my mouth and it's a Walt Disneyworld. Turkey like now. These things looked glorious. They're huge. They're scrumptious looking, but then you buy these things. And unfortunately to me, the taste is not match the smell because to me it was a very gristle field. Super Sodium filled I mean it was just not everything I thought the smell would give. But here's the thing when you pay twelve dollars and fifty cents for a Turkey leg. You eat that thing you you. You don't even if you're not enjoying it, you get it down because you got to recoup the cost of what you've dumped into that Turkey legs. So there is a behavioral finance concept that describes and so what we're GonNa do is win some stores reliable. Some examples for you guys today in the Chad if you're handle is live go and start throwing them out there. If you think you can guess watch behavioral finance concepts we're talking about thawed out there. So you just said you go to Disney you smell the Turkey leg us pay at twelve fifty, you start gnawing on it you get like three or four bytes in. Everything you thought it was, but you say, you know what I'm going to finish it. I'm going to keep eating this thing right? Isn't that what you say what I think is interest. If you do research as a whole thing about the disneyworld Turkey legs, there are bloggers who talked about you should share this with somebody. Now we're in a covert air now or that just seems ridiculous but I will tell you even pre covert I would no more wanNA share a Turkey leg. Been married twenty two years still not share. Yeah. Turkey legs. Back, in twenty eleven last time you and I went to Disney together. I don't remember US walking down shared a talked. So what is the personal finance concept that represents? A sunk cost fallacy. Here's the thing is. There's no reason if you've already dumped the money into this and you realize is just not as good as you thought, it was going to be you don't have to justify the action by continuing to consume it but guess what you will because somehow we feel like it's okay. It's the same thing if you went to a horrible concert or it's raining outside, you know in on the night of the concert, you know you, it's an ample theater. You still show up just because you've spent the money on the tickets,

Dayton's Road to Pandemic Recovery
"We've been taking a look around the country at how different cities or dealing with the fallout from the pandemic. Today we head to Dayton Ohio unlike other places Dayton hasn't been a hot spot for the coronavirus and the death toll has been low but the pandemic is just the latest in a series of struggles. The city has faced in the past year our reporter Doug Belkin visited the city recently and joins me now Doug Dayton Ohio has been through a lot in recent years even before the pandemic from natural disasters to rising numbers of deaths the OPIOID crisis. Can you tell us a little? Bit more about the position Dayton was in before the pandemic it. It's a fascinating town. It really punched above. Its weight for a long time. Many years ago it was a home of a lot of innovation. The Wright brothers came from there there are a lot of major manufacturing companies and engineering companies that really employed thousands of people and built a Beautiful City in the early twentieth century. The housing stock is really lovely. But it fell on hard times. A lot of those companies moved south to chase cheaper labor and the revenue into the city declined significantly and then they had really hard shock. The financial crisis in two thousand and seven and eight pulled a lot of jobs out that didn't return and then the opiate crisis that was really ground zero. It's a lot of highways going in and out of Dayton and it made it a kind of a pitstop for these drugs and they were just hundreds and over the years. Thousands of people who overdosed from opioids. So they were very hard and then last summer they had a string of horrible tragedies. They had a tornado that wiped out part of the town and killed people they had A mass shooting in downtown shopping district that killed nine people and injured another twenty people and they had a Klu Klux Klan rally Which really hard for the people there so last year was very difficult moment for them and all of that brings us up now to the pandemic and Ohio responded to the coronavirus pandemic with one of the nation's strictest lockdowns how has the corona virus now impacted Dayton and our elected officials grappling with it so the virus itself has not taken deep root there the shutdown or have been very effective or at least the pandemic did not make huge inroads. There's been about fifteen people who've died in Dayton of a city of one hundred forty thousand six hundred confirmed cases so the sickness has been. You know it's the specter has there but the fear was a major problem in the shutdown and the economic implications of the shutdown have been dramatic. And what we wrote about in the story was a lot of of what that's done to the economy to the people in the town to the churches in the town and even to the revenue of the city. And how they're gonNA deal with it and how they're sort of handcuffed because they will have less revenue to keep their social safety net strong so we spoke to the mayor of the City Nan. Whaley WHO's trying to lead the community through this and this is what she had to say. And when since we all become mayors because you can see directly the impact you make you get to make decisions and you have this control but the more you do it the more you realize the less control you really have. So what she's talking about here is the fact that these these tragedies that happened last summer in the pandemic it's going on now are all national and international issues. The handgun issue is a national problem. The racism issue that the KKK was part of is obviously a national issue tornadoes. That came through As part of the change in climate and this pandemic as part of a global problem and one thing that they all have in common that the mayor belief is that the federal response has not been robust enough to help cities and towns and they are ending up dealing with these problems by themselves with much smaller resources than the federal government. Has IT Doug? You also spoke to members of the Dayton community. What did you hear from them about how they're coping right now? So a lot of folks were really knocked back on their heels by the shutdown A lot of business owners you know. Obviously they shut down their businesses and they were concerned that they wouldn't be able to restart them and a lot of folks were laid off from their jobs. I spoke to one woman named bridget. Hadn't who has had to dig into her children's college savings account to get by these last few months. And here's bridget. I think this is going to Their their futures. They're gonNA come out of this with a lot of debt Things that they shouldn't have to endure at their ages. I planned for this. I planned in plan for this so that they wouldn't have to do this and now I'm giving into their college funds just to be able to survive day to day and we know that the people around the country are digging into their children's college savings account to get through these periods of unemployment. This is a national issue. And it's it's playing out in Dayton along with everyone else and a big question that all of us are grappling with now is what happens next when the pandemic is over and and what does our new normal look like. Here's mayor naturally again in what she had to say about that. I do think during the tragedies of Dayton last year I did feel the region really come together to support the city. The city center which was very special. I worry that that could go away. Because of the WACO vid puts people in their corner really fast both politically and like literally in the corner. You know in their home. Dave chapelle lives in that area. The wonderful comedian and he gave a show after the the mass shooting to help bring the community together and to heal the community and one thing that the mayor said was that that's not possible now. People can't gather here show so she asked. How do you heal a community? That's gone
Has the COVIDSafe app been worth it?
"So it's been just over a month since the federal government released the COVID SAIF APP which is all about digital contact. Tracing at the time it was sold as a vital tool to reopen the Stralia economy to get things moving again. He is the prime minister. Scott Morrison said in early. May there are currently over three and a half million downloads and registrations of the COVID SAFE APP and there needs to be millions more. How has the APP being used since then? Has it been the key to get things moving ours? Has it been forgotten about well today? We got reported aerial. Bogle Vac to help answer those questions and many more. So I t and Hyneman. So what's going on with the APP? These days it was salt is a vital pot to get us out of look down but We haven't really heard much about in the last waco so that's right so back. In late April wind APP launched. The government was using really strong language around it. As you've discussed describing it as sunscreen tying really explicitly to the lifting of lockdown restrictions. It's like not putting on Sunscreen to go out into the blazing Sun. We need that too so we can open up the economy. And that's what's so important. So if you haven't downloaded the APP yet downloaded that rhetoric has kind of died off lightly and in fact we only know of one instant so far with APP has been used as part of the contact tracing process. That's in Victoria. Where it was used to identify one person who contact tracing had not picked up so we don't really know too much yet about the APP. Success do we know much about numbers downloads? But then also there was talk early on especially that perhaps it was hard to use it correctly. Do We know about downloads? Also usage figures. It's a good question so the government said as of this week more than six million. Australians have downloaded the APP. But that's pretty different number to those who are still using it. I mean some of that six million. They may have deleted the APP. What we really want to know is daily active users. How many people have the APP on their phone? Using it correctly with Bluetooth turned on all those things that make it work and those are the kinds of numbers. The government has repeatedly said it caught. Shame doesn't have access to or is really not measuring so we don't really know the exact number of Australians. You have quite a bit safe operating correctly on the fines today. So the digital transformation needed say they're responsible for the APP. There's a whole series of controversies around. Its use on the IPHONE. I've got an IPHONE and I keep on getting messages implying that it's not on when it is on just in the background. What'S THE STORY WITH? Iphones versus androids and the functionality. Well this was an issue early on so when the APP launch the government insisted that it worked perfectly a lot of people who had some technical expertise. This space. Question this from the start so as you might remember. Singapore has its own contact tracing APP and we all knew that Abbott. It had problems with performance on iphone and we were wondering has strategy fixed this problem. How they got around this it turns out they hadn't so it did emerge as weeks passed since the APP launch. The APP had reliability problems on iphone. So if the APP wasn't full grounded a visible on the screen and with the Foreign Arpan. It was not always reliably communicating those in crafted dazed funds with the APP or collecting them. So the government has continually updated the APP and it looks like they may have fixed some of these iphone issues but we still hearing reports of people running into problems when they using other Bluetooth Devices Sabo headphones so we really still need a bit more clarity. I think about just when the is performing as it should and on iphone even if some of those obtaining problems have now been fixed.

"waco" Discussed on American Scandal
"I I'm not aware of a lot of evidence to actually support an FBI tank. Knocked over all enough coleman lanterns to spread enough fuel to you know that that a spark could have lit the compound on fire You know and then there's the third theory which is the one that the FBI has has stuck to You know which is that. The branch Davidians or group within the branch Davidians intentionally Lit The compound on fire There is the the two big pieces of evidence to support that one is the testimony of an F. B. I. Sniper who says he saw someone inside Spreading fuel and you can come take that at what it is you know if the FBI had acted variously certainly a member of the FBI would have a lot of incentive to lie about what he saw but it is something that that agent testified to. I think the harder piece of evidence to refute is the testimony of Graeme Craddock. Who was a member of the branch? Davidians You know who said repeatedly That he sought people spreading fuel inside the compound. So you know exactly what happened how it all went down. I either the people who Who lived the people who left the compound during the fire either? Didn't see it weren't part of a plan. They all except for craddock seemed to have a no knowledge or don't want to discuss What happened with the fire? Critic of does not has not gone out of his way to blame the branch Davidians and Koresh but but he has mentioned the fuel. So I think that's the most likely scenario but I don't think I think the the mistake in saying while the branch Davidians started the fire or you know some groups of the mighty men group within the branch. Davidians started the fire which I think is probably true. I think the mistake with just saying that in stopping there Is that it blames the branch Davidians for everything. That happened And I think there's no doubt that the HR tactics were were wildly. You're responsible That there was no reason that the FBI should've gone in with gas morning. And I think that's been born out because as the future when there were sieges later on The FBI was even more patient. You know it was it was it was a total disaster and a total disaster for the FBI Total tragedy for the French video community. American scandal is sponsored by Madison Reed.

Waco has inspired the government to investigate itself. There are countless books articles movies and now Netflix has re released. Two thousand eighteen miniseries to an even greater audience. Waco is a thing. What do you think the? Cj Waco's lasting influences on the public and the government. Yes so the Waco siege is lasting. Influences is a really interesting question. I when I think about what happened in Waco. It is like a home distillation of all of these trends that have been happening in American society from the very beginning of the nation. You know it's it's this a religious liberty it's private property. It's gun ownership. It's the role of the federal government. It's really dislike quintessentially American event an American tragedy its place in the American popular consciousness. I think has ebbed and flowed since nineteen ninety three. I think it had a pretty quick drop In people paying attention to it at the Oklahoma City bombing kind of brought it back. The Oklahoma City bombing also had had the inverse effect on on militia membership militia memberships spiked after the events at Waco and dropped After the events at Oklahoma City But but it has been through the nineteen ninety s certainly it was the subject that was intensely debated and Kinda culminating in the the second major federal investigation. That the Danforth report. I think it What happened on nine? Eleven and the subsequent wars that You know certain ended the public's fascination for a while with what had happened At the branch Davidian compound. There were several different documentaries You know some of them quite excellent And and the the miniseries You referenced during Taylor Kitsch as David Koresh you. I think definitely represented kind of high point for the The FBI's actions against a militia groups. I think it fundamentally changed the way that the FBI did wake was part of a series of events who is the final In a series of Events Ruby Ridge was a major event that preceded at a were in. Fbi sniper had killed a woman as she went outside compound and was unarmed There had been a few smaller incidents involving militia groups in the nineteen eighties In federal law enforcement you know after Waco ended so disastrously for the FBI I think they decided that they would bend over backwards to avoid What had happened at Waco and you saw that right up until the I think the closest recent analog was the the Eamon Bundy led a standoff in Oregon We're one man was killed But the the federal government. I think we're basically was going to let them be there as long as they were going to be there. There was the the to the point where I don't think anyone looking at that event thought it was. The federal government was about to get tanks and an storm The the Bundy compound where you know where they were holed up in that federal land. The just You know with hopefully not do that today and I think it's just not the way that they operate after Waco it was it was such a black guy For the agency many of these issues. These uniquely American issues that you identify the the Waco distilled are still obviously with us today and And clearly the government's role in protecting its citizens Is is still there as well. What does the frontier for the next Rebellion if anything and what do you think? The government's response will be yeah. That's that's a tough question. I think a lot of the the issues around individual the the balance of individual liberties The the role of the state the role of law enforcement are you know are are all issues that very much. Still face us today. You could imagine I mean just what we've seen over the last month of two months with the federal and state response to the corona virus pandemic and the way that certain people protested that You know people that there has always been always will continue to be a strain of people for it is very very important to assert their independence from the state and law enforcement You know at almost all times You know often often citing people like you know early. Writings have founding fathers. Thomas Jefferson so i. I don't know I'm not smart enough to know what what the next big issue will be. Hopefully it won't be a Waco because the lessons that were learned at Waco But I you know you saw with the Bundys. It was about the federal ownership of of land in the West. You know whether the federal government should be should be holding all of this land and deciding who got to use it you know you. Could you could imaginative in maybe not in this pandemic but of future events where the government curtailed individual rights as they indisputably have done during this pandemic And people decided that the more important thing is the preservation of individual rights as a as a small very small. But but you know pretty vocal group has so I think a lot of a lot of that that just kind of fundamental attention in American society between very strong protection of individual liberty you know and ambit complicated and vast modern state apparatus. You could see that conflict playing out In all sorts of different venues Just hopefully if you know if won't via deadly Conflict Eric Benson thank you so much for coming on American scandal Thanks it was great to be here now as Eric.

"waco" Discussed on American Scandal
"Back in two thousand eighteen. You did a retrospective of the events at Waco for Texas monthly on the twenty fifth anniversary in one of those stories You interviewed Byron Sage of former. Fbi agent who was also a lead negotiator with the branch. Davidians when you spoke with him. How did sage respond to the legacy of the Siege? And and how did he tell the? Fbi side of the story. Yes Byron sage is a is a really interesting figure in the WACO story you know. He was the lead. Fbi Agent in Austin during the Waco siege but also had extensive negotiating experience and was called up to be part of this very large team of FBI negotiators. Who were talking with? Koresh and sage took on a leadership role within the the negotiating team. He wasn't in charge of the negotiating team but he was effectively the lead negotiator because the person in charge of the negotiating team was not often on the phone. He was more directing the effort. Since sage was was there for all fifty days of the siege and you know he was the one at the at the end who was telling the branch Davidians to leave their compound when it was on fire he had really extensive conversations with David crush including the only face to face negotiation of the Waco Siege When he and the sheriff of McLennan County Jacquard will Went and met face to face with Steve. Schneider Wayne Martin Actually come in the middle of the Mount Carmel between the F. B. I. Post and the actual compound itself but sage has since really the end of the siege and since it became a real flash point as been a very vocal defender of the FBI. You Know He. He is criticized some of the tactical side of the FBI There was negotiating side and then his tactical side. The negotiators were on the phone. The tactical side of were an armored vehicles and had their guns trained on the branch Davidian compound. He's criticized some of the tactical tactics but his feeling is very strongly that there is nothing that the F. B. I. could've done to To change the ultimate outcome of the siege and he's most people that I've spoken to in the FBI feel the same way. And that's I think that's part of the culture of the FBI in part of him You know having having been there for all of that time and tried to do as much as he did to get people out but you know certainly not. Everyone agrees with and and not even everyone. Involved with law enforcement agree with that in the same series for Texas monthly. You also interviewed Sheila Martin and Clive Doyle both branch Davidians who escaped dying in the fire. Do you get a sense that that the two of them have been able to move on from the tragedy or are they perhaps stuck in it defending their own side of it. He has Dolan Sheila Martin who I spent some time with. I've known climb for a few years and Sheila I just met two years ago But there I believe. The last two Members who are who are alive of branch. Davidian sect who still You know who are still in Waco and still believe that David Koresh was of a God chosen figure they haven't rejected David Koresh And Yeah I don't think that either of them have moved on. And how could they clive? Oil lost his daughter in the wake of fire and Sheila. Martin lost almost her entire family. You know she lost. I believe two sons since she lost her husband so for them. It was a an immense personal tragedy as well as seen their community essentially end. But they you know they still believe in the same things that they believed in then religiously and so. I don't think either certainly Sheila Martin but but really in my conversations with Clive Doyle. They're they're not that concerned with litigating. Exactly what happened at Mount Carmel They're mostly concerned with carrying on and That particular religious tradition which at this point is is very small and without intervention from something that you know that they believe in We'll probably end with them. One of the points. That was probably the most litigated of this. Whole thing is the very end How did the fire start? Can you lay out to us what we know what we suspect? Who thinks what yes. How how the fire started in has been the most litigated point. But but literally litigated and certainly bandied about in the media and by different stakeholders in what happened Waco I'll say because we talked about the media earlier one thing that's really fascinating to me You know someone who. I'm thirty five years old. I was young and not a big news. Consumer with the branch Davidian siege happened So I before I was asked to look into this For movie project actually about five years ago I had kind of only a very hazy view of what the Waco siege was who David Koresh was But when the WACO fire happened the polling after immediately after the fire Ninety three percent of people in this was in a a CNN. Gallup poll thought that David Koresh was responsible for for what happened. You have by nineteen ninety nine after they're been quite a few documentaries congressional hearings Importantly the discovery that there was a pyrotechnic round used at Waco The public opinion had almost completely flipped Sixty one percent of people who were polled in nineteen ninety nine thought the FBI started the fire which was part of the reason why there is another federal investigation after the initial federal investigations and the congressional hearings. A special council investigation that Janet Reno than the attorney. General John Danforth who had been a Republican senator from Missouri to To conduct so with the fire there was a fire that started at around noon on the day that the FBI was injecting. Tear gas into the compound so the FBI on April nineteenth basically decided that the siege was over and that the branch Davidians were coming out and they brought in a army tanks fitted with tear gas injectors and started punching holes into the building and injecting. Tear Gas Trying to enforce the branch Davidians to come out and for the first six hours. None of them came out. And then you have a fire starts in the compound very quickly sweep Through the compound burned to the ground By an hour later there's really not much more of the branch Davidian compound and the fire of course burns for for a while and and and killed seventy six people as far as what we know You know I think I would say that. They're basically the theories of the fire and Frankly you know which I what I think has the most evidence you know. What one theory is that? The government Intentionally started the fire either to drive the branch. Davidians out or to kill all of them. That's theory that started almost immediately after the fire. I believe the first big airing of it was in a documentary called Waco the big lie which is not a very credible documentary It showed Kind of reflections. That were happening of sunlight of off the tear gas injectors and it made it look like the tear. Gas injectors were shooting flames into the compound I not. I don't think that anyone who's looked at the evidence. Thinks that that's credible. I think you the video. Evidence doesn't seem to support that. There were flame. Throwers on tanks shooting Flames into the compound. So there's a separate theory that FBI snipers were shooting at branch either into the compound or overshooting branch. Davidians who leaving the compound That was something that I'm relatively sure that people in the compound were afraid of There was a documentary that was a very widely seen documentary That used confessed footage from a Spy plane that was going overhead to support the idea that there was muzzle fire from FBI snipers The Danforth report refuted that I personally think that it's quite unlikely that the FBI was firing into the compound. There's another theory that the the branch video of course they're electricity was cut off. So there were there. Were they had a coleman lanterns filled filled with oil And that's how they were lighting the inside of the compound and so there's a theory that as the tanks rolled in You know they might have knocked over. These fuel canisters and kind of turned the compound into basically a place that was ready to light on fire and then it took almost nothing. Just a a a spark or something like that to like the whole place up that it almost prepared for fire. Is that theory that I think some people have taken some comforting because it makes the whole thing seemed completely accidental.

"It's the evening March. Twenty Fifth Nineteen ninety-three day. Twenty six of the at Mount Carmel at the FBI. Command Post eight miles northeast of Mount Carmel. Gary Messner packs his suitcase. He rubs his tired eyes and steps out of the command post which hums with activity day and night. It's been another grueling day in central Texas. Nestor is the FBI chief negotiator and in the days. Since he arrived he spent. Nearly every waking minute consumed with ending the standoff. There's never been a break. Not even tonight as he drives down a dark highway headed back to his hotel as he glides down the dark road. He spots a car with a bumper sticker. That says Waco Proud. Nestor nods his head. The locals are sick of being known for this craze cult. Seems like everyone on the planet wants the standoff to end everyone except David Koresh necessary grips the steering wheel tightly. He still fuming about an earlier meeting with Jeff Jomar Tomorrow's ATOP FBI commander at Waco but a Nassar's opinion. He's too quick to use force just days ago. Necessarily team got seven adults at Mount Carmel. Including Sheila Martin. The Wifa crushes close legal adviser Wayne Martin but Jomar failed to recognize achievement which was thanks to the negotiators and their diplomacy even worse to mar later. Sent in more tanks to harass Mel Karnal Nelson arrives at the hotel and heads up to his room allies down on the bed and flips on the TV. There's Mount Carmel yet. Again the compound is flooded with stadium lights surrounded by tanks loudspeakers blaring the camera then cuts to a TV. Pundit who says the FBI is failing and it's incapable of winning the standoff. Just then the phone rings necessarily exhausted but he knows he can't ignore the call. Yeah hello this is necessarily a cheery voice comes over the line. Gary throbbed race race boss back at the FBI office in Virginia. Hello Sir what can I do for you so I know it's late but I wanted to tell you? I think you and your team are doing a great job down there in Waco. I mean getting twenty. One kids out of the compound. That's a real accomplishment will thank you Sir bye but listen. Grace Pauses measuring his words and immediately. Nestor feels himself tense up. Something bad is coming. Yeah so the. The reason I'm calling is look Gary. It's time for you to step down as chief negotiator. You've been going nonstop for coming up on. What would five weeks now? It's time for you to get a little Dr. Nestor knows exactly what this means the. Fbi BRASS him out. Sir I feel. I feel that I'm really needed down. Here let me and my team see this through. I feel the negotiating team will be all right but Sir Gary. It's done you fly out tomorrow morning. Ness nervous is stares at the TV at Mount Carmel at the tanks and the wreckage that lies in their wake. He wants to protest but he stops himself. It's IT'S NO USE. Yes Sir understood. Nestor hangs up the phone. He's tired numb. He turns off the TV and stares at the ceiling. Nascar set out to get every man woman and child out of Mount Carmel. We've fallen far short of that. And he has a terrible feeling that he'll always have unfinished business in Waco. It's early April week. Five of the standoff at the F. B. I. Command Post Byron. Sage sits at a desk waiting for an important meeting a meeting. That could set the standoff on a new course after Gary National was removed as chief negotiator. Sage stepped in has the de facto leader of the negotiating team. He was sorry to see. Messner go but he's continued to push hard for a peaceful solution even if progress has been slow coming. Sage has spoken on the phone with David. Koresh and Steve Schneider almost every day for five weeks straight. But it's been two weeks since any adult is walk through the doors of Mount Carmel. Crash hasn't released any children more than a month. Sage STANDS UP. It's time for his meeting with the FBI's Commander Jeff Jamar sage walks past rows of agents all huddled over computer monitors. They have dark rings under their eyes and they look worn thin. Just like sage. Everyone is sick of living off cold pizza and they're tired of David. Koresh having to organize their lives around the whims of a madman. Say Jenner's to Mars Office. The commander is hunched over his desk. His Expression Stern. He gestures for sage to sit and asks. If there's been any progress in getting people out of Mount Carmel sage size and shakes his head to Marlene's in. He wants to know the truth. Can THEY GET DAVID? Koresh to surrender. Sage takes a moment swallows hard. It's difficult to admit after weeks of effort. But he tells Jomar what he believes. The negotiator seemed to have exhausted their options. At this point sages convinced that David. Koresh doesn't care about anyone inside. All He sees are ways to fulfil his own. Grandiose Vision Sage prices lip before offering his final assessment. He's not sure what correct will do if they don't act. Soon Jomar nods. He says he's glad. Sage has come around on the point because the agency has a new solution in mind. It's a plan code-named Jericho. Sage recognizes the name. Jericho from the famous siege. In the Bible Jomar picks up an aerial photograph of Mount Carmel. He points to the compound explains that according to the plan tanks will approach Mount Carmel with specialized equipment outfitted with thirty foot arms. These arms will act like pipes that can penetrate the compound through these pipes. The tanks will then injected tear-gas going room by room. They'll release the gas over a forty eight hour period. They're not looking to force the Davidians out immediately instead. They'll gradually shrank the living space inside the compound until the entire building is saturated with tear gas. At that point the divisions will have no choice but to come out tomorrow looks up from the aerial photograph. He says that once they put Jericho into action. They'll need someone to tell the Davidians about the teargas and to help talk them out of the building. He wants sage to fill that role. Jomar also explains that the highest levels of the FBI are on board soon the FBI director will help. Present the plan to Janet Reno President Clinton's new attorney general and Reno gives the okay. The tactical team will immediately put the plan into action. But right now Jomar wants to know if sage on board with the plan say just lets his mind. Imagine what will surely be a frightening scene inside Mount Carmel. He can picture the thundering tanks. The white clouds of tear-gas filling room after room. Too RISKY PLAN KEEPING KARESH. In-place feels even riskier. This has to end on the FBI's terms so Byron. Sage tells Jomar he's in its April fourteenth. Nine thousand nine hundred ninety three now day forty six of the standoff David Tobacco smiles as he bounds up the stairs to the second floor of Mount Carmel. He feels light on his feet. His former balk wasted after six weeks of combat rations and the hardships of the long siege purged. His last spiritual doubts for the first time in his life timid. Oh feels like he understands what faith truly means at the top of the stairs to stops and grins here. David Koresh sits up against the wall surrounded by large group of followers timid. Oh sees his own hope reflected on their faces earlier today Karesh announced that he will end the standoff once and for all God spoke to the Prophet at the end of Passover. He instructed Karesh to write down. His interpretation of the seven seals. Karesh said it will take two weeks three tops so he called the FBI and said as soon as he finishes writing the seals you'll surrender. There will be no change of plans. Scans the crowd and spots his wife. Michelle she sits with serenity. Her four year old daughter who she had with Karesh Tibidot goes and sits down beside them and serenity crawls into his lap he smiles at her and she settles in Settling on. Karesh is a look of calm and clarity and then he begins to speak exalted and proud as if God is flowing through him he begins dictating the first of the seven seals next to him.

"To the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen before we get into this week's episode. I do want to say something about the corona virus epidemic. Which is what's going on as I record this. I also put this in the amateur traveler facebook group but I know that. Not all of your in there. I want you to know what my plan is. So many of you I am sheltering in place and I am not traveling because it's the right thing to do these days but I won't be blogging and podcasting about coveted Nineteen Ama- traveler. I'm not a medical expert. You don't need my opinion. We did do one episode of this week and travel. Because it's news but that's really all I'm going to do about this and I'm really of the opinion that this will get better. I don't know how long but sometime we will get back to work. And things will return to normal and travel will return to normal whatever normal looks like and so. I'm going to be looking ahead. I'm going to be helping you dream of better days. I know for some of you. That's not what you're looking for now. If you unsubscribe because this isn't the right time for you to be thinking about travel no problem. I understand but that's what we're going to be doing here and I just didn't want to catch you by surprise it's not that I'm totally clueless about what's going on that being said. Let's talk about Costa Rica. I'd like to welcome the show. Sam and Jason. From my ten feet dot com who've come talk to us about Costa Rica Salmon and Jason. Welcome to the show. Hello Chris Thank you for having us and Salmon Jason our friends. I think we met in Philippines on a press trip. I WANNA say ten years ago so I don't remember exactly when we met the first time but someone actually pitched me doing Costa Rica but two of the bloggers that I know. Who are the experts on? Costa Rica Are Salmon? Jason and they make a living basically from this and from helping people figure out what to do in Costa Rica's so let's start with the obvious. Why should someone go to Costa Rica? Costa Rica offers a lot of things to do for people who want to experience nature because Costa Rica's known as a very ECO friendly sustainable destination. It's very green country in every sense of that word yes exactly. They protect over twenty five percent of their land actually in so for anyone who wants to experience nature whether they love I watching or hiking or even a beach vacation to see a volcano experienced rainforest particularly has got it all in that sense and when it comes to countries in Central America Latin America is very safe. It's very popular for travelers in the US in now more in Europe and they're very friendly people in they're very welcoming so Costa Rica's even a destination for people who have never been outside traveled internationally because of the excellent. And what kind of are you going to recommend for someone who let's say it's their first time in Costa Rica? I most people they land in San Jose. International Airport in this is because this is the biggest international airport so they have more flights schedules. And then for the first time itinerary something I would really recommend is and then you go to Fortuna I in La. Fortuna is a city what they call northern lowlands and it is home to the. Arina volcano very close to lake are now which is the biggest man-made Lake in Costa Rica and also a lot of rainforest around and so a lot for tonight is known as the adventure capital of Costa. And you can do pretty much all the adventures you could once. They're so whitewater rafting canyoning zip-lining very popular hiking because of the rainforest is nature. There's a lot of wildlife can see a lot of birds monkeys and floss and it's a very good destination for families or for Solo travelers. Because you find everything from ten dollars. Abed a night till eight hundred dollars a night so you have super budget to the super luxury. We'll I in. This is what we did when we were in Costa Rica. The first time you didn't stop us in San Jose to do anything and that is pretty typical for Costa Rican itineraries. Well craze the reason why well Waco streak is. We don't do that well. Actually the government is trying to make the capital Prettier Bad the truth is that the traffic is terrible. Whenever you work the tourism industry you don't one on a generic going through San Jose because traffic jams are getting very bad. I believe that every single city on the world is having this problem so ideas or packages that you find like San Jose jewel probably stay one or two nights and then you might see one or two activities on the whole day and I will say the main reason is the traffic well and I was not surprised that you did not suggest that but I did want to point it out because somebody may be looking at an itinerary that somebody else creates for them and I wanted them to know the difference. Well now that you mentioned that this is actually something that I have noticed. Recently especially with people from Mexico. We got a lot of direct flights from Mexico in a notice that a lot of Mexicans in some sense they liked to stay in San Jose and they do a lot of one day. Trips is a lot of time on the buzz things that I don't actually recommend by opinion is a waste of time. I mean if you WANNA go to a game is not fun to spend four hours in the boss three hours and then go back for our sped. Believe it or not. This is a new thing we saw last year so meant that I was with a lot of people asking in. Actually we work with companies that do one day tours and many people they liked to be in bosses nowadays. I don't know whoever's listening to this podcast if you love to stay in a positive things house in one day trips but we don't recommend you to do that. The only things that I can think of that are close enough that I would do that. As there's a couple of the coffee plantations that I think are close and the river rafting in that area is fairly close to center. Say but I can't think of anything else that I really would want to see in Costa Rica. That San Jose would be where I would base myself. I think it's a lot of people they come to Experienced two major because it doesn't really sell itself it city city life economic in the city. They do have some nice cultural sites. They have a national theatre. They have a few really nice museums. But it's so small. It's not a big city so honestly see the city in a day and you can go to the neighborhood. That has a lot of good restaurants. You can get really good feel for in just one day and you don't need more than that really as if you were in New York City Madrid or not as much to do which I think is part of the reason why a lot of Timorese. Un in San Jose many sleeve. Right away yeah. I don't think I've been in San Jose. Costa Rica twice. So yeah so unless if you are dying like really really keen on experiencing city life you really don't have much time and something to mention Kristie. You mentioned the Quad River. Which is the most popular Whitewater rafting? The we have here in Costa Rica. A lot of people what they do is they take that tour as a way of transportation so for example. If you're planning to go to La Fortuna or you're planning to three Korean site so he's very very very common people book the Touri- Apple say but they ask to be drop off either for tuna or decree inside or they can bring you back to say but that will save you now your dad with many other attractions if you go to well. In this case the EPA quad as is closer Korean site. So from that location you can go through two different locations so the Costa Rican tourism industry. They know that so. What they do is is that it's transferred tour with four or five hours activities. Very bubbler any works very well here. Sure can do. The two are from laugher tuna or the Caribbean works. Both ways so very much like you can take a whole day for instead of traveling traveling in rafting

Malaysia gets new PM, Muhyiddin Yassin, after week of turmoil
"To Malaysia which has a new prime minister seventy two year old my eden. Yesen it's less than a week after the abrupt resignation of the world's most national later. This is the ninety four year old Muhammad Muhammad that plunged Malaysian politics into turmoil. So how has this South East Asia nation about thirty one to thirty two million people? How has it gone from an inclusive? And reformist government to a nationalist conservative law. Within days. Bridget Welch is an honorary research associate at the University of Nottingham. That's at Malaysia's Asia Research Institute bridget. Welcome back to between the lines. Great to be here now. Mahadi rule Malaysia for more than two decades until a two thousand and three in my twenty. It mighty gripe political comeback. Those last time we had you on the program bridge. What did he suddenly resign? Listen to us into his tenure. Well I it's reasonably clear that had he had very serious tensions between himself and anwer Abraham and the coalition that he led the pocket harp on coalition was divided and ultimately it split And as a consequence of that The the coalition collapsed and part of the collapsed however in the ball to move to a new coalition government and mightier himself was not willing to accept what other other parties in the coalition were doing montier resented working with. I'm no particularly the former leaders of the former government who were Who are tainted by corruption allegations? So what we see is a situation where Montier many politicking dividing rule many of the trying to split the pot the coalition itself his his reluctance to to leave Turn power over to Anwar set the conditions for the power. Grab that took place but at the same time Montier was not willing to go full. Go through with it. Because he wasn't willing to to allow the new new coalition to include the members of who he stood against when he came back into power. I'm into thousand. Mahalia and You mentioned ny Abraham now. Let's be clear. He's the protege turned. Raul turned ally although they fill out about a waco so ago they have reunited though having I think they have reunited from a perspective of They're now forming the opposition. But they have not yet completely resolved their differences. The fact of the matter is is that if Montier had supported Anwar clearly laid out a time line and stopped the politicking within the coalition then the government would not have collapsed. So I think for now. They are working together against a now common enemy. Who was someone who took the took took over the government in a in a power grab but at the same time that doesn't necessarily mean that they are fully resolved the question of the Lisa Session? If alcohol everyone was to come back to government says he feels but tried he success that. Yes in his malign nationalist. He's backed by this corruption tarnished former governing party. You mentioned the Mama tells more about yes so mine didn't yes and has been in politics for over forty years He joined politics in nineteen. Seventy eight He came into. I'm no He was the Chief Minister of the the very important state of Jehovah on the southern part of Malaysia and he has served in different capacities as different ministries that has held six different ministries In I'm no I'm he has not necessarily Had A clear Persona that That an extensive grassroots but he's been a very effective tactician and capable administrator And as a consequence he rose through the ranks through I'm no And he became deputy prime minister under the previous government From two thousand nine to two thousand fifteen We didn't ask known predominantly for three things He's I known for defining himself I as a Malay- as opposed to a Malaysian which is of course part of the reason. There's the brand that he is. Emily nationalist government and this new coalition that exists combines is predominantly Malays based parties And so this is something. It seems to have been Quite defining of who he is. The second thing is is that he's also known for standing up for against Najib on they won. Mvp scandal He he was sacked and after putting pressure On on Najeib to on these issues of corruption and he after in this happened in two thousand fifteen when the scandal is revealed so he stood up for On this important issue. And he's also known now for The effective maneuvering up becoming the winner in the power. Grab Which of course they're very different views and Malaysia about this Those looking at this recognized that that there are real serious. Ethical concerns about Whether or not amyloid and Yeltsin actually had the numbers which really did not seem to be the case in terms of A majority government When he was positioning himself for taking over power And others feel that that there's a there's an that he had. He had more than most numbers at that time and that he should that He was effective and moving and getting the position of power. There people in Malaysia are divided right now. Some people are are willing to give mood in a chance Wanting the situation to be more stable is and others very very angry that they feel that their sister the government has been stolen from them their dreams of different Malaysia of stolen for them. And there's a bit of considerable fear among people that this that lead in Yassin were lot real will be an old Malaysia. Politician Aka using the levers of power using issues of race using of issues of of of exclusion as a way to build up his powerbase so to the extent that this new Malaysian pm a struggles to govern and of course we have to remember elected public. Mandates does this mean this unprecedented instabilities. Luckily to continue the fact of the matter is is that Malaysia is a coalition government And is dealing with the situation of coalition governments in coalition governments across the world. You have one type of party set. A parties emerged. And then you can have a very unstable situation that a new set of parties emerged from Malaysia. This is a very new dynamic and of course it played out in the uniquely Malaysian Way with with intense amount of personal drama and Intrigue Enemies and betrayals Because the politics of Malaysia or highly personalized Right now mood in is Has Very is behold into the parties that he that he is that a put him into office and and the questions of Prot. Who is he's going to prosecute or maintain the prosecution's how much Islam governance he's GonNa put in whether he's actually GonNa try to seem to have any reform without his gonNA use race relations and of course importantly now lead in. Essen is is somebody who's just recently had a very serious bout of pancreatic cancer so the issue of the leadership succession is is equally important for this new government so there are very important points of instability and and as a result of that This is something that the people are watching very carefully. The instability is also facilitated by the fact that the opposition the new opposition bucket on Harapan. Now is that is actually quite emboldened by how this power crap has taken place.
