The facebook and google of this world have many ways sort of tainted it for those smaller players who are doing really cutting edge stuff is really beach designed. It works well and has the potential to integrate. Well into these systems on there is this kind of fear of big tech. Now that i think is become a bit overbearing because of these regular abuses by facebook leaking five hundred thirty three million accounts last week. It does nothing to help these companies who often putting on really interesting products. I think a lot to do in a lot to contribute. I think it will get todd with the private sector brush which is a real shame on maybe setting back to what we said earlier. I think that needs to be a kind of educational public awareness campaign or something to kind of address this balance little bit more positive spin on all of these things and you know showed people how they can be really useful on. Yeah fundamental part of that dish that is it can be delivered effectively securely on an in a way that's really nothing to look out as well and you know so really exciting thing and it's an exciting time to be in this industry.

"Is a protocol and the the various stages of off an open. Id and i. I d conn wasn't mature at that point even sure that in two thousand leaving i. Id connect was a thing. I think it was open. Id to and you know could drive a bulldozer through that front security. A lot of work was done to build to mike. At robust and top of that was you know been. Id connected and so on but a hell of a time to be able to go and to do a government scheme. I you know i was there. They were bright ambitious. Think probably the school of government use case for verify will be an interesting one because it but it does contain some of the plastic all leanings pep should have been applied here that impetus project have an offering and fail quickly and get on with it and i don't think that necessarily was a plan b or somewhere along the way. There was much conviction that plan. I was going to say that the off ramp congo quickly. Forgotten the staff tune. Knowledge drying or whatever. So yeah it's an interesting one but the place. They've found themselves. I is interesting. And i do see that. You're right with that sort of both. The work with trust framework on sawn creating democracy creating conditions for private sick to market so exist and to some extent and how that plays with public sector as well and then the public after the govan houseman. The talk about uk counts doing a little light white identity. I heard that nearly dies. You know it was just going to be a logging indication. Pretty much nothing else which i can understand that new was doing that with the government. Logan service and two dozen saving much later. The us done with logan bulk and each case. They've done lake binding to add identities. So you start off with a very lightweight. Hello you know like a mouse. But i've logged bacon here again and there's no real binding it's sure and no real binding and then you do a light bind when you get up to looking at a higher transaction. It's interesting i do see the development towards what they doing now as interesting and in part. I think the hips is learning. Something from verify is don't be too ambitious. Follow a little bit. What other people are. Of course trust frameworks. The australians with the trust digital identity framework began that work around two thousand sixteen fifteen. Maybe you know finished a two thousand eighteen and started launching albeit bit with philly short consultation periods and everything but they got it done and go out there paying canadian trust much more consultative but you know it has been what i've used six years. I mean they're putting it into alpha now the dot could understand how they could be feeling. Well if other people have done trust frameworks then know we should to. And there's some good things about trust. Mooks can towers operate a trust framework for the dnc shrimps framework for from since two thousand eleven and i started with him The federal identity credential nexus management program the us federal government and. They was actually really one of the first restaurant looks right and they had had pretty complicated process and so on and i started pulling back on it in about two thousand sixteen and today i mean it's we have to wait for the final policy announcement which i think is coming. Maybe this month maybe next month but then not following a trust framework. They've said too complicated too hard for people to understand too difficult and expensive to maintain and yeah so it'll be interesting to see how this plays out there actually going for a sort of a kanerva. My understanding is much like a kind of a lightweight. Conformance to standards. Basically you have credit bodies you take your service through and it must conform to some standards that the government is mandating that you need but of course that's just for federal government and of course steaks and private to do i like but i think the u k i think in the us these folks will look at what they're doing and to some extent the tomb of its works for them or not. I mean i think you're definitely right. There is much more collaborative desire to work with the private sector rather than against them with this new stuff in the uk. That's coming out and become so tation processes Much more inclusive. It seems government. Actually do want to listen a bit more. Which i think agassi was one of the problems with verify. Is that as you said those. This kind of this is how it's gonna work under. We're going to stick with no matter. what and when. That didn't really work out it was. I think there was some confusion government. About why what went wrong. And hopefully they've learned enough now can develop alongside the private sector in in consultation with them that we might end up with something that's workable for both parties and the oatley ends up being whacking physicians as well. Because i think that's kind of will this stuff needs to do is just work for normal people on. Yeah i mean. I suppose if i could be a bit provokes of this moment i would maybe quite some old research. Now i think twenty fourteen something like that. The was carried out sort of around the time when you could very flat. She first came out and they basically found the basically. Whenever you told focus groups that commercial interests were kind of being built into these public identification systems like verify the kind of overwhelming response from east focus. Groups was that people really like thought. They didn't stay and they didn't really get it. Rhonda i wonder if that's a it could be. Uk specific appropriate. But i wonder if it might also be just people don't understand it so until they realized how this technology works and how it pembe privacy sharing and maybe then people would be more into it. But i do think. A lot of people share this kind of general scepticism around companies making profits from these very intimate digital relationships. We have through entities. I'd just when you wince you mentioned that just coming into my mind was with the verify. Adp's i think the most popular one was the post office right putting aside. They might be few quite a number of not particularly satisfied Some push mrs pice masses these from a general population public things. Perhaps they trusted the post office brand more than low never relationship. Yeah exactly you see. The post office will miss every day and people do this. Deep trust of as an institution and i think i think it was really interesting to see that when the alternative was kind of credit agencies and banks which i think people often a little bit more of a nervous relationship with. Yeah it was interesting to see. What would you have done. The would use guy and we'd say what you needed as almost like a national publicity campaign sort of at twenty million pounds. Tv and brisk campaign or something is with ben affleck. Was it just the time. Two thousand fourteen just too early. Yeah i mean. I think it's changed since that people have become used to using detroit. Nc even if may don't realize what it is when they're online and they're logging into side Now the federation will generally is kind of this very normal thing on the incident fight. Sign up through service. Logan with google logan with facebook. Whatever it is. I think possibly now people would understand some of it. Yeah i mean at the time. I think considering verify had this very privacy centric design whether it was basically no data leakage in theory you. It was in some ways to privacy preserving for the government that they can get any useful data of any of these transactions. Because i can see any bet news. We'll double blind to everyone. So maybe people understood that. That's the system greedy was about. Then they'd had less issue trusting some of these.

Philip Green's retail empire Arcadia calls in administrators
"The coronavirus pandemic has dealt a potentially fatal blow to british retail giant arcadia. And its owner sir. Philip green within the next few hours the group which owns internationally recognized brand. Top shop is expected to file for administration much bankruptcy protection. The process will shield the business from creditors as it tries to get finances in order while parts or all of the company is sold off. Well that means some of the group's stores could close. The bbc's simon jack says many of the brands under arcadia umbrella are household names here in the uk and they're likely to survive in some form. The june the crown is top shop other brands which people won't be familiar with the us like burton wallis evans. Dorothy perkins some of these brands or seem to be very old school and new internet only brands of come. Along targeting millennials. Much more multan have got a greater connection with the shoppers. They're servicing one affiliate greens big problems as he had this inherent loathing technology. And i'm afraid retail is a technology game these days and that's why he didn't keep pace with it now. The coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc across the retail sector. This year arcadia has collapsed could potentially even worse than that for some retailers. Big department store chains here. That have shops within a shop. That's right so there's another big transaction going on which is a fading and ailing department store called a sportswear company called jetty. Sports is trying to buy that now. Deb enemies inside it as you say has lots of concessions of the brands that philip green and say if this goes bust that other merger is in danger because the income they would get from those concessions is suddenly going to disappear so there is a domino effect. Here if you add it all together. We're looking at thirteen thousand jobs in the katie groups. Greens empire and twelve thousand in the devon's group. So twenty five thousand. I actually spoke to some green over the weekend. I said how much of this is to do with covid. He said last night. And what i'm going to be open identity stock to buy but the cards were dealt on this many years ago because he did not adapt to the changing face of internet retail. And this is also bad for the suppliers who supply these stores. Like top shop yet. They could take a big hit clearly. They're suffering because many of the shops they sell to have been closed over different periods of lockdown. Funny enough the supplies. We spoken to did not feel. They weren't getting paid by philip. Green empire arcadia. A lot of them will have bought insurance. In case the person they sell to goes bust. They won't be able to get that insurance by selling. Philip green's empire anymore so yes you could be looking at big hit in the supply chain. Tv salmon jack. Thanks for breaking this down my pleasure

As is from my scientific point of view that argument that it's manufactured bars has been tightly discredited winsor Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome first appeared in two thousand and two in China human was part of the international team. That did that hard. Detective work the years to trace its origin back to a corona virus in beds and the team's been surveying and identifying Bet Corona viruses across China saints. The size called to virus is ninety. Six percents SIMILAC genetically to about corruption virus working with Salads and with colleagues in China. I had the opportunity to see how intelligent how how technically skilled however principled. My colleagues in China were Humza signatory to erase it later. In The Lancet Medical Journal expressing solidarity with China's scientists and concern that conspiracy theories are threatening the rapid open and transparent sharing of data on the covered nineteen at break on people. Say yes but it's Johnny's system which autocratic I can be my to do it etc I nine principles about fats. Those people in that lab at on. We'll be working flat out around. The clock does manual. It comes with his ours. You know you've got to start from scratch stopped from nearest point of knowledge songs develop diagnostics tried to treatment methodologies. That'll be working flat out getting pulled in every direction. Trying to get on top of this thing. That's ahead stop. But where the virus got. It's real headstart. Perhaps OVER MILLENNIA. Ease in bats and scientists have benches with bats have taken him all over the place. All over Italy David Heymann is professor of Infectious Disease Ecology at Massey University in New Zealand. And Yeah some people selling hundreds of back carcasses who to Yeah people wearing Jin as a libation. A bill offering to the bats in a cave. And there's no doubt about it is that's the galling but what I want to know is why beds in particular how the so many viruses that are so deadly to us and yet not to them and to do that. We need to get denied. That's a bit better which Mike Up About. A fifth of the world's Mammalian species the phenomenal mammals. Actually they're the only mammals that truly fly the evolutionary. Oh they've been around many tens of millions of years from fossil records. Basically they live live everywhere on earth really apartment article so that enthused New Zealand out here Hawaii three to take so they're very well adapted the lots of different spaces and the really good for the environment. So for example predation pests. They prevent crop and forest damage. Because I eating insect predators suck the hugely ecologically important. Certainly the the fruit eating bats are great seat disperses Italy to see elite fruit the C. Pass through the bat schedule intestinal system and then it puts it out in a new location. So that helps maintain I. They also pollinate Important crops because revolved for so long. There are many plants for example rely on best to do the pollination and all the seed dispersal for them. David Hyman Ward. Mike's bats such a distinct. Such prime reservoir for novel viruses that can then subsequently crossover and infect other animals than they known to humans. What is it about the laugh of bets and better species so there are many hypotheses one is just the sheer diversity of bats around the world so therefore they have a diverse range of ours is and we think that they've been around for a long time cheaply long lived species relatively speaking and I will live for years and tens of years. Not like rodents that live within a year. They're gone. They will like humans in cities. I mean they form very dense colonies with thousands in a small space so that's ideal for infection spill to transmit from one individual to another Peter Virus Heaven and what's more abet colony might contain multiple bat species so viruses can adapt and crossover between them. He catching a ride when the bats migrate onwards so then they concede infection into new columnist. These multiple networks and communities about spending vast lots of different viruses between them probably lead to them being great host for these viruses. You look at the things I well I if Laras then this is way are would do well it. All of this going from built the interaction. The numbers I felt the citizens either Tom etc etc and the range of viruses bets carry all that originated in bats is mind blowing. Yeah there's extra diversity and it's not just trying of ours. Is that seems to be the same for paramedics of our season. Rabies probably had bats and even things like measles and canine distemper virus. Which we now and paper will be familiar with. Lissa viruses herpes to ebola influenza. A Hendra Nipah that most viruses. That bets incubate don't seem to make bets seek rabies. Seems to be one of the notable exceptions. Why don't they get seek? You didn't quite a really hard to study some of the hypotheses of that because bats have evolved to repair the muscles for example that the tissues that damage during his flight is really intensive. They vote repair. Mechanisms enable them to repair cells for example and versus damaged cells and. There's lots of consequences to that. That doesn't tell the entire story. They ran the immune system. That means that they. They seem to have constant arts they. Immune system switched on during the dice and also they. They fly everyday that I get the core body. Temperatures are effectively. What we do if we're sick and feverish so if you can imagine that we as mammals we have to similar response when rail one hypothesis is that when we do our normal response to viral infections. Then actually these viruses evolved in that sort of environment. And they don't mind so they carry on replicating the things that we do to suppress viruses don't suppress the bat farces. But that's just one. Hypothyroidism is a few others clever little biological systems in a molecular clock analysis that said that Corona viruses and bats had been coexisting for at least ten thousand news probably hundreds of thousands of years and possibly millions of years so these are very robust and sort of long term. Evolution are of these farces within spats and the issue is not about changing to become infectious. Hatha generate to patriots getting from bad to the purse on Wallis taking him. Bats doing their own thing. There's no pro-woman's each bridge what we call an epidemiological bridge wants that bridges. Creator so the agent can get from the reservoir to the purse. So you pay. That's when the trouble starts and there is a perfect place for that Epidemiological Bridge to be built.
Jesus the Philosopher with Dr. Jonathan Pennington
"Here. We are and we are joined by Dr Jonathan Pinkston. Thank you for coming on the show. We're glad to have you. Hey I am absolutely thrilled. That's excellent so You are just wrapping up Sabbatical. You've just wrapped it up. That's right okay. And you're telling me before we jumped on Mike that Iran a bunch of fiction on Sabbatical. Yep Okay tell me what you were. Because I'm reading a bunch of fiction right now. Yeah well I always do. I often joke that I actually just professor to support my fiction in reading habits. Because I'm and I mostly listen to because that way I can just constantly listen to them when I'm sometimes walking driving doing dishes. London whatever So I listen veraciously. All kinds of things got some favorite authors like Ursula Gwynne and others but I just I just read Willa cather author. You know her. She was a famous nineteen twenty century. Her Book Called death comes for the archbishop. That was really good. I also read the entire David Foster oster wallace reader which is both fiction non fiction any Wallis. Some you know everything. Infinite Jest while infants all the way through that truth be told but all his essays everything it was fast essay that stands out to your hand. Yeah the one about the State Fair Illinois that was and and The one about television is a long essay about television. Its effect on people. Yeah so he wrote an essay on I think it's called collect. They've named a collection of essays this as well but both flash and not where he talks about tennis pros. Oh yeah that's right. That was man. It's incredible it was so he wrote that. I've never watched tennis in my life but after I read the essay I got on a bender with watching professional tennis. Yeah you don't you don't like sports. That actually have is that it is well. He's so ham fisted the rest of the very literally. Exactly I was GONNA say haven't reading David Foster ause because I've been watching football and I didn't you know what big game was on today. JV Edit tell somebody else's like is there a big game and they're like it was like who do you have today in college. Like is this the sports ball. Don't even Yeah Ursula. Gwen are you into science fiction too. I mean good science fiction. Science fiction is created equal. But I'm reading this collection of short stories by Ted. Yes absolute escalation escalation absolutely. No I just know cool. I like old school like okay. We'll Ted Chiang is amazing. I read the earlier collection and that the story and they're called the story of your life the basis for the movie movie arrival which is one of my all time favorite movies. Have we not talked about not using it got so. Hey it wasn't at Brad like several times and he did not get sick. Okay we'll start talking about cross fit or are you still there. Okay listen if you have not read Ted Cheese amazing. He's incredible okay. So that's Dr Pennington Worley. co-signing an endorsement. If you listen to this podcast broadcast hanging in there for you. We love to have you know. We're we're glad to have Dr. Go ahead please. Oh no no no no what is amazing about him and league win is the same way and you should care about this and you should try. Is that a think a lot. About the power of language in shaping our thinking An culture yeah and so both Lin Chang are constantly thinking about how we say things and the way we structure our society and how languages connected that. That's why that that movie arrival. Yeah did you ever see that. Yeah so it's not language it was about how I know amy. Yeah on that one whitaker's in it too right. The Guy Blackhawk as well as listening. I have a big crush on her. She reminds me of my childhood crush. Elizabeth Montgomery say an actual the person's name and that person would be listening going. Oh I never even knew that he was with again where he's an actual person. You might actually be witched. Oh Man who can forget are- even recording. This has been hot. No we are although I could talk to you about Hans Fictional the rest of the time that we have together. Dr Painting is a professor and author posture preacher. He's written a number of books. He has a friend to the TV institute. Big Friend Friend town this week and teaching It's been my favorite time of the year. It's the most wonderful time of the year so even when we started the training program one of the hopes was bringing in outside speakers Experts in their field but are also churchman. Church women people who who want to to do theology or new tests ultimate cities at the highest level in the academy but can also translate to the local church and we didn't know it was gonNA work five years ago But we brought you back five times so it's worked. It's pretty well and you know this. Our students have just really gravitated towards you. And I've also seen you Avenue now for seven eight years or so You've always been a wonderful the teacher and a good friend. But even as you've been preaching more your church just seeing God used that to shape you into a just a beautiful person into theologian into a real. You're a real person. You know what I mean by the air you're dealing with substantive issues but you're also living In a broken world that we're living in and you're able to speak speak in both of those worlds. Yeah so grateful for that well. It's the teaching works because of hungry people could be up there doing my stick and if people were hungry angry it wouldn't be the same. It's an interaction and so you guys have created something so beautiful here of hungry people who are seeking the Lord and trying to figure out their lives and and so it's annoying to come in and it's been fun part of that so you've been in town this weekend speaking about the gospel of Matthew. And would you say that has been where your focus has been the last number of years. It sounds like yeah so I had the great privilege of doing a PhD. In Matthew hasn't stopped since and I always when I think about Matthew I always think what he says in an esoteric way in chapter. Thirteen that The scribe train for the Kingdom of Heaven continues to bring out of his treasure house else. Things old and new and so we've been studying this book of Matthew for two thousand years and they're still. I've been studying for twenty years and every time I read it I see do things. They didn't see it especially everytime I preach from it one of the things that I've been amazed even though not write articles or books teach. It's when I go go to preach a passage that I come to understand it I think in its fullest way. What do you think that is I wanted to ask you about the the process of rediscovery? So somebody's many. Listen to this like okay. I'm on my Bible Reading Plan and I've done it faithfully the last twenty years. I'm coming up on a book of the Bible. I've Read Twenty Times Thirty Times Forty Times. What is some of that process of rediscovery for you as you walk the same path over and over again? How like where does that come from? Does it never feel like it's just old hat like well. Of course you know. This is what what he's doing here in the Greek and this matthew. This is a typical matthew. Move that he's making right here. Like what does rediscovery somebody no no but but what is But what does it look like. What rediscovery look like? Somebody's spending lots of time in one book of the Bible. Yeah I I think it is a it is a literary and theological Michael masterpiece and the reason. We're still reading it. Two thousand years later is obviously. It's in the Bible. We believe it's inspired. But it is a masterpiece. The reason it's still worth worth reading over and over and and a great piece of literature is one that you've reread. I just wanted to read once. And the more so structured and I always remind students that it by the time matthews written this thing down. He's been pondering and praying and preaching teaching and rearranging and editing for like thirty years. Probably by the time. He's this is is his magnum opus. This is as great piece. Just like we would read You know brothers Karamazov for something over and over and you'll see things in it even more. This is a masterpiece. Sure piece and you never get tired of it. I think the other thing and this is why things I so appreciate about all you guys. I'm thinking of Jan.. How much joy her books to her experience? As a teacher feature I think you'd probably affirm this that when you go to teach you go from passive learning to active learning and so that's what I think is amazing that I'm teaching teaching and preaching for Matthew. That's when I come to understand it more. I think you guys build things into the institude. Were there reversing say. Yeah I think so. I think a big part of the reason why I never gets boring is because I'm an active reader passive reader

Some Hope Wildfires Will Change Australia's Relationship With Coal
"Despite some recent rain scores of fires continuing to burn across Australia and there is still a lot of fire season to go millions of Australians. Have already you've been affected by the unprecedented blazes and is NPR's Nathan Rot reports. Some hope this will change. The country's relationship with one of its biggest and most controversial exports Kohl unlike in the. US Cole is still king in Australia. The country generates roughly three quarters of its electricity by burning the carbon heavy fossil also fuel here in the US figures closer to one quarter. But the real place that you'll see Kohl's power in Australia is in the country's list of exports Australia. Australia has the largest share of traded coal market than Saudi Arabia has of the traded oil market Rod. Campbell is with the Australia Institute. A progressive aggressive think tank down under so we are essentially the Saudi Arabia of call and our government is desperately trying to increase Chris Alcohol exploits last June. The government approved the construction of a coal mine in the country's northeast corner that's developers had said would be one of the biggest in the world world a few months later. The bushfires broke out adding heat to an already broiling fight over the project and the bigger debate around climate change. The protests against the country's coal friendly Prime Minister Scott Morrison or SCO as protesters call him have sprung up in cities these around the country with marchers holding signs that read climate emergency and Co Wallis not coal in a recent interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation Morrison said. His government will work to reduce climate warming emissions. But he added it would do so without writing off in seventy billion dollar industries mysteries on which regionalist reidents depend on for their livelihood that figure being roughly how much country makes every year exporting coal mainly to fast growing Asian markets it energy analysts. Say that demand isn't going anywhere at least in the short term but climate experts say as the bushfires make clear action is is needed right now. Here's Rachel cletus. With the Union of concerned scientists. We have a window. That's fast closing in terms of trying to avert some of these very very serious climate impacts grew says a transition away from coal is going to be complicated as we've seen here in the US in a country like Australia whether a lot of jobs orbs that depend on the fossil fuel industry. It's not something that can happen without some careful policy intervention from the government. The question is whether that policy intervention will actually happen. A recent survey shows the bushfires are making Australians more concerned about climate change but a majority thirty of Australians believed global warming was a major threat so environmental groups like the Australian Conservation Foundation are now trying to help people connect. DOT's here's Kevin McFadden the Kasich we've got to make sure that people understand what's causing climate change and the fact that the digging up and burning of call all domestic usual for export eastern.

Conrad Truman acquitted in second murder trial
"Conrad Truman had been convicted of murder sentenced to life and had already served more more than three years now. The revelation of those flawed police measurements had led to Conrad. Truman's new trial. That stunned everyone the Utah County. Da's office especially the man responsible for comrades conviction prosecutor. Craig Johnson. This is something that really took us by. Surprise is the defense. Says you know that's their take and they're doing their job to zealously represent their client. I can tell you categorically that. That's not correct. Just as stunned was the man whose team took the measurements lead. Detective Tom Wallace. What went wrong? How did that happen in the process of if Transposing numbers from actual measurements of the same to the crime scene program numbers just transposed wrong wallis admits the error are but says it was minor that Conrad Truman did not deserve a new trial. It's not that significant as they made it out to be. Did those incorrectly entered word measurements. Change your opinion of Conrad Truman's guilt should they change anyone's opinion. They didn't change my opinion. Nor did it change the opinion of the deputy district attorney Tim Taylor who decided to take on the task himself of prosecuting comrade. Once again thank Craig had been into the case for a long time so I wanted to fresh eyes go. I went through all the evidence and even with the medical examiner changing his opinion. I still felt that there was enough to go forward but we knew that going into it was going to be tough at trial. The prosecution's case was familiar. Starting with the officers who testified about Conrad's rambling often incoherent a description of what had happened that night the core of our case or his inconsistent statements. The story was hard to follow. He was jumping around all over It wasn't making sense to me so it was hard to follow. Those officers. Also told the jury about Conrad's threats He. He was telling us that we were going to slow and we need to hurry up where he was going to kill us. I'll kill you if you don't say my wife if you're making these violent threats to people who were there trying to help your wife. How are you treating your wife when it's only you and her long Taylor? Then tackle the theory of suicide by calling like witnesses to testify. Heidi was not suicidal in your experiences. Hide he's mother Was Shia sad or depressed person. No Oh I didn't see her. That way did Heidi's not knowing her father or not really knowing who he was that made her depressed or say no. The prosecutor pointed out comrades story evolved over time immediately following the shooting on the way to the hospital. Conrad insisted Heidi would never ever commit suicide. I think something shot or a casino never suit ourselves. He'd never suit yourself. Taylor argued that it was only later after suspicion against Conrad had mounted that he changed his tune up as for the gunshot residue. On Heidi's right hand Taylor called an. That's birth to say nothing. Nobody can identify shooter based on the results of this test. That is the major limitation of this test. Defense attorney Mark Moffatt answered by telling the jury that before being allowed to wash his hands that night. Conrad had pleaded with police to confirm. He had no residue residue on them cash on the edge has A. Did you wash your hands before saying absolutely not never washed my hands until they said go. Wash your hands. Comrades attorneys were working hard to establish reasonable doubt and the state medical examiner's shifting opinion on Heidi's eighties manner of death. Only help them. That's your case right there. I mean if he has reasonable doubt to argue a jury should exactly the medical examiner told the jury that in the final analysis. He didn't know the manner of Heidi. Truman's death by finalized allies the autopsy report with the cause of death as a gunshot wound and the manner of death could not be determined the emmy also testified how in his his experience a contact wound light. Heidi's is rare in homicide cases With the contact gunshot wound it would be consistent with a wound. That's often after fifteen days of testimony. The jury began deliberations. So you felt pretty good lead up verdict. There is enough there there. You're beyond a reasonable doubt. Conrad was having a much harder time. It was really difficult. Because why would things work out. If it didn't work out the first time you know what I mean. Eight hours later the verdict hole up your hands handcuffs no cuffs. You're not in custody. That's right this time. Conrad Truman got the verdict. He won't it not guilty just kept saying did they say not this. Grab my arm and he goes. Are you sure in the courtroom. Conrad's family shared tears of joy. I was giggling and crying crying at the same time. It was weird on the other side of the courtroom mile. Were tears of a different kind. I don't know my heart sank. Think and I was in shock. I couldn't believe there was a situation situation where that longshot happened. where he would be freed? Juror Brian Christianson said he and his fellow jurors had no choice but but to set. Conrad free believe that. We all pretty much felt that he probably did it. But you voted to quit because uh reasonable doubt. We had reasonable doubt whether you believe Mr. Truman is innocent or not those measurements either. Put an innocent man in prison or let a guilty man go free well. So you're right. The my opinion hasn't changed. Do I think he got away with murder. Yeah I do. What's it like your work? Call it a question like that in a way that ends up freeing the guy that you helped convict it's frustrating to know that a measurement that was inconsequential actually ended ended up Freeing him what's life been like for your family since though we're trying to put the pieces together for hiding righties family that is easier said than done. I miss the things that we had together. I miss the simple conversations. I Miss Surp- Sassine as I miss our wonderful personality she lives on forever in our hearts is left looking both backward and forward. I mean I do anything to take another day another walk with her. I loved her and I do love her. Still still you got a lot of life left a lot how you gonna live to the best of my abilities. There are jurors who think he might have done it but I had reasonable doubt. I couldn't vote to convict. God God bless them but there's a lot of people that do believe in me. He's made his own peace with with a simple truth. The very thing that freedom reasonable doubt could also shadow conrad treatment for the rest of his life.

Philip Green fashion empire crumbles
"The high street fashion. Empire of Philip green is on the rocks. The UK retail I king has secured creditor support for three overhaul that's involve rent reductions store, closures, and to having of the company's pension deficit reduction payments, but will this be enough to save the business? Mafia Vinson discusses this question with Jonathan Ford and Jonathan Ely. Tell us a bit about Philip green and his fashion empire. How many stores all there in which are the best known brands? So the empire was put together from two big acquisitions that have Sears in one thousand nine hundred nine and nuts of Arcadia in two thousand and two Arcadia is, of course, the one that gives its name still to surf Phillips fashion empire four fifths of the revenues a made in the UK and Ireland from about five hundred sixty stores and they're all so concessions in department stores like Dem's and in some branches of Tesco now by far the best known of the Browns is top shop which counts for more than half of the sales, but there are also a series of smaller brands Burton, Wallis Dorothy Perkins, miss Selfridge Evans, being the main ones if my memory of back issues of vogue serves me talk shop was until. Recently regarded as something of a success, celebrities plumber into be associated with it gained to catwalk shows, and green was the person who is credited with getting it. But high profile on that level of success knighted for it. How is this managed to go wrong? So there are many causes a knife fits early into two buckets, if you like one is the sort of external factors over which Philip had relatively little control. And the other is the things that he did have influence and control over now outside his control was quite, simply the competition, much better. So back in two thousand and five when he was knighted, boo. A fashion retailer sells online and we'll turn over over a billion pounds this year did not even exist. And there's a whole series of those types of businesses have emerged who misguided, they sauce, people like that prime has really up to his game, h and. Am has opened hundreds of stores in the UK Zara has expanded quite aggressively in the UK. And also consumes have become much more kind to dispose to ordering clothing online something that seems a long time ago now but if you go back to the early noughties people were saying, oh, people will never order clothing, on my because they'll want to try it on. Well, they do try on. They try on at home and send back the bits they don't want, and then the things that he has done wrong. I think he basically took a lot of money out of Arcadia in the early noughties then famously paid his wife for one point two billion pound dividend didn't really invest enough act into the businesses that week online websites in their whole logistics, regarded as behind competitors and along with many other retailers from the sort of pre incidents era, they're finding now that they've simply got too many shops. So now so Philip finds himself as you say, with shops needing to close some of them leading to. Have the rent reduced on the others. Under the so-called company, voluntary arrangement. Can you just explain exactly what a VA is? And why he needed Sarah CVA is a peculiarly British form of insolvency that basically gives the company a window of opportunity to reach an agreement with its creditors to reduce its payments, and his overheads, and therefore is obligated, and actually any credits can be compromised under a CVA. But when it comes to retailers, it's almost invariably the landlords. That's are they face cuts to rents of between twenty five and fifty percents on about one hundred ninety four out of the five hundred also stores. They are the very significant aspects of this sceviour is that there is an agreement with a pension regulator Arkadiusz pension fund is about five hundred million pounds in deficit and the company had been making annual payments. To try and close that gap miss reached an agreement with the regulators, where it will reduce the payments, and so Philip, and his family will make good the difference, and that agreement with the pension regulates. The has very important political and legal ramifications should anything wrong with Arcadia further down the line, they still have to close certain outlets which talks about top shop, earlier, which other stores are going to be affected, or the CVA all of them all the chain. So twenty three stores will shots within the next year and that seems like quite low number out of five hundred sixty six but the reality, according to people in the commercial property world is the final number will be many more than not possibly into three figures that's because lots of stores are coming off lease anyway, and because over the three appeared of the CVA, there are lots of opportunities sort of written into the terms for either the landlords author Arcadia to end Elise early enclose a store. And that has raised questions really over the future of some of the other brands, we know already, the Evans miss Selfridge are going to move to a more wholesale type business model. So most of their stores will close one wonders how long things like Dorothy Perkins Wallis and Burson might lust because there's one marketing expert said to me last week if these stores didn't exist, would you go out of your way to invent them to have turn this round, if east Browns are not long for this world, even if he's able to have a little bit more success with top shop is there really a turnaround strategy Novus, while it's fair to say that many people think there isn't that what there is is too, vague into threadbare. So we know that he's basically plan to invest hundred thirty five million pounds over three years, roughly split half and half into improving the stores and improving the website and the online. Logistics the problem with that smaller a to really hundred thirty five million over three years

You're on your think, you're taking any of this serious. All day of cuffs is. Hey nine ninja himself. Ru yori, we asked. So please join us today. Very happy to be here. Tell I know we done a little bit of an introduction. But tell the view is about how you got into American injuria. I always loved obstacles swing around like a monkey just throw them a whole life plan and finding out what's possible. And you know, so in America ninja warrior came on TV. I was like something that I just need to do. And. Unfortunately, it didn't really work out previously like previous years, but just didn't line up. But once did I figured out, you know, here's a chance, but in my kitchen and fortunately got chosen so now, I mean, you got chosen because you're very talented. And but you doing it for good cools tennis. What ten tennis you wearing a t-shirt adopted dog? You've got the picture of one of your full dogs on the T shirt tennis a little bit about how you using this vehicle to kind of create greater awareness. I have been involved with rescue dogs for over ten years. We've rescued a bunch of Wallis was a pit bull who is gonna be euthanized. He became national and world champion frisbee dog Hector who has rescued from. The Michael Vick case he became a certified therapy dog when they passed away recently, unfortunately, but in a kind of left a bit of a gap as far as what? I do now. And so once I got the opportunity to compete on American engine warrior. I was like this is a really great opportunity, and maybe it could fill that gap. As far as reaching outside of the typical dog circles reaching the general public to encourage them. And let them know that there's lots of dogs out there that need adoption. And if people don't adopt them, unfortunately, the sit there or youth Anais, so I was like this is an amazing opportunity. So I wanted to not have to be about. Hey, look at me. On TV and wanna be famous. It's like let's use this platform to do some good put put some good juju back out in the world. Now, we're talking about massive viewership here out here. I think six seven million per episode. So it's fine time primetime footage. I mean, you can't ask I couldn't I couldn't get that anywhere else. And so I was like this once in a lifetime dream come true opportunity. I didn't know if I was going to get featured. But if I do want to count and I wanted to do good. And fortunately, fortunately it did. Yeah. You got feed you. I mean, I'm as ING it's fantastic. Now. I met you doing it's meal the job, and I met you when you were you came and you help defamatory see what that dog might be capable off. Or at least give them some kind of ideas of some activities do their job Tennyson it'll bit about that. What that you did the that? You did an awesome about Hector. Wallace legacy said he was going to use a nice, here's a really extremely driven and energetic dog. I mean, I had never had a dog at that level before. And I didn't I didn't really know how to handle him the best. But fortunately, we've found out that it really liked to frisbee, and that seemed to channel all of that energy and allowed him to focus all of his drive onto that topic rather than causing issues and stealing towels out of the bathroom and ripping up the carpet, and you know, doing all the fun things that energetic driven dogs do. So we started competing either teach myself throw frisbee. But we we both it fit with me because I've been an athlete all my life. You know, coming out of college. We don't really have that opportunity when I went into the real world, quote, unquote. You know, I'd I'd missed out on a lot of that competition. And so this allowed me to kind of get back into that it was helping with Wallis make him into a better dog. And so just really really good fit. They're not just talking about throwing a frisbee here. You're throwing a frisbee. I mean, you truly are doing amazing tricks of it. Is it's definitely a team effort. And I like I said, I've been an athlete my whole life and so Wallace and the dog is busting their rear ends trying to catch it. And I was like, you know, that they're working that hard. I want to work that hard for him as well. And you know, and the more athletic that I could be as a handler intended to increase our scores. You know, what the judge in in that kind of stuff? So if I could bring as much as I could to the table, and let Wallis do his job it worked out really well for us. So, of course, Willis first nine comes sued the year that we won the the credible. Jones was the same year. Michael Vick busted for dogfighting. And I had seen the impact that Wallace had on people changing their minds for the better because they're like all they saw dog playing frisbee. And then when they realize that he was a pit bull. I didn't know they both could play frisbee. Well, he's a pit. Pit bulls are dogs dogs play frisbee. So why not right? So when I saw I knew that Hector in all those dollars are going to be in the media spotlight because of just going to be kind of crazy situation. And I really thought it was important if any of those dogs were okay to be adopted out that they got that chance. So that they can prove that they could overcome something like that as well. And we shouldn't judge them based off of where they were found or what they look like, you know, we need to do valuate them completely agree with that. But you know, let's find out who they are. Fortunately, number of them were okay to be adopted and Hector was one of those in. We're fortunate enough to bring him into our home. And it was it was an experience for us to. I mean, he has scars on his chest. You know, we were even with us who believe in these dogs. It still had that stereotype of man he's coming from the situation. We have dogs in our house is this really going to be okay. And so we are a little hesitant. But. We're just justed it. And fortunately, he was actually he is Boston around by Mindy. Lou who is a little thirteen pound fluff ball just owned Hector from day one. So you're not just going to show. We don't know what we don't know until we actually find out. So so what what is the kind of work? Well, if you could if you could leave people with a message, would it be? I guess, you know, be. Be opened proving yourself wrong because. Not that. Because I mean, even even myself who was advocating for those dogs. I didn't I was hoping that maybe one or two of them would be okay. And it turned out them. More of them would be okay. A lot of them. Unfortunately, we're affected and they needed to go into a sanctuary type of environment. Then you know, they had to do life. You know, maybe under the situation if it wasn't Michael Vick. They might not have been saved. I don't know. But, but it's still there's still more of those that came out of there that were okay to be adopted to the public. Then even I thought and even looking at Hector he proved me wrong, multiple gauges. Somebody like I said it was advocating for him. So I just think it's really important that we all we all have preconceived notions. We all have our judgments that we make and that's fine. But if we're going to act on them, I think it's. It's important for us to make sure that they're true. We're your amazing. And I love the what he do. And that you continue to do and that now using your profile to help people. Learn about adoption and also educating about types, I hope that we can do more work together in the future. And I'm very excited about this takes his. Thank you so much for coming on the pump cost a lot of fun. A lot of.
The politics of chess
"Selection. New president of tresses governing body fee day was the Bishop in the organization's history with accusations flung from all sides of bribery, electoral fraud, embezzlement and a vast diplomatic influence campaign waged by the Russian state. Some Jane's has been investigating. What's happened? And he space John Thornhill about what he discovered. Sam you've written a wonderful Osco for the F T magazine about the geopolitics of chess and the fist fight to run its governing body feed given that a computer or a ten million dollar alarm clock has Gary Kasparov called it beat the best human player back in one thousand nine hundred seven why does chess matter anymore. I suppose you could ask a similar question about any kind of game playing in a way that obviously from sort of human point of view, something attracts us to the competition. The display of skilled because I suppose we could have designed perfect football playing machine. Had we have wanted to or a perfect bridge playing sheen, but it would be no fun to watch two machines play against each other would it. So we don't do that. And the only reason we're interested in watching deep blue play Kasporov is because Kasporov is there. We want to see him pit his human wits against machine. So I think regardless of the abilities of computers to handle chess. And by the way, they still on not perfect chess players. There will always be a space and a need for people to watch that kind of competition. And I think the interesting thing insofar as this article goes is that that's the heart of the issue. Really? It's about what games humanity plays with each other and the significance those games have. And chess is one of the oldest, isn't it? It goes back hundreds thousands even of years if you want to go deeper into history right back to India was of significance to rulers. It was a political significance hugely throughout history. Right back to the sort of wig chessmen on Lewis. You know, they were symbols of something that politically culturally connected a world, and for many, it still has that cultural and political relevance is still enormously popular as a game, isn't it? Yeah. Absolutely. It's something perhaps that in the UK, and certainly in some parts of Europe and the US as well, it might not immediately obvious because it's not a sort of mainstream sport. You don't see it on TV for various reasons that can't be much more boring than watching chess on TV, but it is hugely popular. And there was a yougov survey. I think in twenty twelve so even that a little bit out of date now, which suggested that there's more than six hundred million regular chess players in the world. And the interesting thing about it as well is that even if you're not a regular player. It's a sport or skill game. That has touched a lot of people. And a lot of people have played it on certainly know how to play I think in some places seventy percent. The statistics said from that you surveyed in Europe of people have played it at some point, and therefore know the rules of it. So it's got this sort of huge cultural resonance, even if we don't see it all the time on our screens for a supposedly cerebral game. The fight to win control of feeder his involved in extraordinary amount of low down politics involving as you put it small-time oligarchs and corrupt officials broking deals in Siberian mining towns and Islam theocracies. Why has this battle become quite so heated? I don't know. It's sort of an interesting one to explore. I'm not sure there's a clear on, sir. There's a degree to which it's that sort of old adage, which is often attributed to Kissinger, but is actually Wallis sad about student politics that the processes so vicious precisely because the stakes oh small, and you could probably say something of that about fee day because the amounts of money to run feeder on not huge by any means. Although the we're talk millions, but we. Sort of in fever levels of wealth. But at the same time, it's a universe of people who are competing with each other. You have a very particular kind of people that end up in chess obsessional, very intelligent people that quite literally spend their lives playing games. So why don't they do that politically as well? But also, you know, since the end of the Cold War chess has been in search of a meaning really because it had such relevance political relevance during the Cold War missile post, Cold War, period. It's still got a lot of cultural cachet and people obviously trying to latch onto that. And to use that for various purposes, but at the same time it's been a little bit rudderless until recently and a little bit forgotten. No, it hasn't had the direct attention of the Kremlin. Or certainly not in Washington. Anyone in power there? You know, we're not the sort of Fischer Spassky kind of matching Reckitt level of international awareness. Now, you say that there has been a revival of interest in chess, and blah, Dima Putin. Russia's president is clearly someone who is taking an increasing interest in chess. And he said once. Chess makes men Ysern clear-sighted. Does he see chess as a means of reasserting? Russia's soft power. I think increasingly yes, I mean feta is been run for the past twenty years by very colorful Russian national cooled kiss on allusion of. And he hasn't exactly been the best Representative of Russian influence around the world euphemism. Yes. Well, quite he's sort of said that he was met by alliens on his balcony at one stage. He's said that chess was gifted to the world by aliens. But he's also had some sort of quite shady dealings with unsavory characters like the Assad family in Syria for which he was recently sanctioned by the US treasury, but the new head of feet are Cardi volka vich is much higher caliber Russian recently deputy prime minister and the organizer of the World Cup in Russia last summer and clearly whilst restoring fee day to some degree of kind of international prominence and credibility will also be doing a lot to champion Russian soft. Power interests by saying here is an organization a sporting organization that Russia is not only in charge of cleaning up which obviously is going to have a particular importance in the wake of the doping scandal, which continues to dog Russian athletics. I think the other point to make is that Putin and his method of power his conception of power draws so very heavily on the Soviet passed in the Soviet experience of Russian greatness. And so the significance of chess is that it was such an important part of the Soviet conception of soft power and Soviet influence that even if ideologically Russia is moved on by years. It still has this important culturally that Putin wants to tap into. Now there were three contenders to succeed Ilyumzhinov for newest pushed out why did Volkova twin? Well, I mean, I don't think there was a clear choice. So it wasn't a simple case of the Russian candidate versus the reform candidate versus fee day has had these issues under Yoshino for longtime around mismanage. -ment around corruption allegations of bribery in the organization, and the problem was that you previously had a Russian Illumjinov who was very fake in his financial affairs running it. And then in the elections, you had three candidates as you say, you had a Russian who was promising reform, and it obviously delivered a very successful World Cup and had credentials for that. And then you had an insider Kyo Macropoulos who is also a longtime Lieutenant of Ilyumzhinov and therefore tainted by that. But similar Tena sleep. Also, promising reform rather unconvincingly, but similar tenuously also saying that he's not the Russian and he's not bribing anyone in the elections. And then you had a third candidate the Briton Nigel short who I think was always a very much an outside candidate and divided people on a personal level in feed because of his quite spiky comments previously and his long history of antagonizing people in your organization, he fell behind four kovic even though he'd been quite critical of him at the start ends. Then he did. So I mean. Nigel's point was very much that it was better to have a competent pair of hands running fee day, regardless of whether they were rushing or not than it was somebody who he felt was incompetent. And it'd been running it for the past twenty years in the form of Macropoulos, and there's definitely a personal animus between Macropoulos and Nigel Short as well that sort of flavored their relationship and at the last minute, he declared his votes Ford. Walk vich, and rather stinging Lii in very characteristic fashion posted on Twitter a picture of himself shaking hands with dwarf Vichit Simpson's in the strand in London, which is this story chess restaurant, and he captured it underneath how'd you say check Maton Greek clearly aimed at his opposition. How does Volkova which intend to promote chess? Well, I mean, if his last few months of being anything to go by then money is going to be a key element of it. So he's delivered on the promises. He made in the election by putting three million euro into fee day to fund development. He's also promised a much more rigorous oversight regime of. Chess. So he's mentioned that you know, every penny spent will be judged by performance indicators is no longer going to be sort of pushing money into regional federations with no sense of what it's being spent on. And he's definitely I think hoping to build on the relationships he has in the football world and elsewhere in the sporting and political world to sort of revive the prominence of feed in Europe, and the US the west in particular because I think they're really has fallen into disrepute, and there was a real danger for quite a long time in the US in particular federation, their supporters people at Kasporov in fact would split away from fee day altogether. So when I met tool kovic, he'd come straight from Davos, where he was sort of pressing the flesh with CEOs and politicians many of whom he knows, and I think one of the other things he's done is already tried to build relationships with fee for directly. He's actually friends with Infantino at fee for an invited Infantino to give a little sort of a speech for him at his election at feed, and they have already I think. Announced some sort of chess football events that are going to be held together in the future. So more of that kind of thing think to imagine

"Okay. So so many of us have 4._0._1._K plans an IRA plans in the last ten years have been nothing short of phenomenal. Remember when you go back you've got to go back to the nineteen thirties to see the kind of bull run that we've had. Of course, we had a tremendous one in the nineteen nineties after the eighty seven crash, and so we baby boomers have done pretty well, our kids and our grandkids not so much now millennials now, some of us waited to have kids I shouldn't say some of us because we went being some of you out there use some of us. So so you have millennial children and what we're learning about millennial children as they are not. Homeowners and this and and Nova wrote about this. Here's what an had to say about it. There's a whole lot of reasons including personal preferences and economic disadvantages. That explain why the homeownership rate for the largest generation in US history is lower than that of their parents and grandparents those okay like Lance down the hall. You know, sure, I know he's he's a great young man land, man. Yeah. Twenty four years old never stops talking full of pepin vinegar and the world is his own. So delayed marriage has one of the biggest impacts on their low home ownership rate. Marriage increases one's likelihood of owning a home by eighteen percentage points, according to the research now, we know that millennials are postponing getting married if at all if at all many of them will be eighty years old and still unmarried. Yeah. Their wedding later and less as you say nineteen sixty the average age women and men I married was in their early twenties. Yep. That's we seem young to you. I was twenty three. Jio at twenty three. I knew nothing. But look, you're still married Wallis. Yeah. Yeah. Thirty whatever years, I'll be forty six. That must've worked when you. Is it didn't work for many people at half the population right today. The median age for first marriages closer to age thirty and millennials are three times as likely to have never married as members of the so-called silent generation similar today. She goes on today's young people are not in a rush to reproduce. This is a problem, by the way, nationwide worldwide, we need to have more peeps. That are out there making money and paying taxes to support the all the cost of infrastructure and so forth. I read were like seventy five percent of our bridges need work. And we need more Pete's because sooner or later guys like me are going to hang it up. I don't think we need more people. I think we've got enough. Well, you can discuss that with the demographers and so forth, but that's not the point of this article. They share the share of married households with children aged eighteen to thirty four dropped to twenty five percent in two thousand fifteen and thirty seven percent in one thousand nine hundred ninety and having a child increases a person's chance of owning a house by six points. So there you go. Well, what happens is you have a kid. You say I gotta buy. I credit my expensive with my kids were I credit them for pushing me to buy the house. I couldn't afford I figured out a way to afford it. And to buy the next house. They couldn't afford if it weren't for them. I probably would've just coasted in my little condo. Well, I think that's exactly right. I think it's exactly right. So I agree. So let's let's talk about all the statistics. Let's talk about real live financial planning for parents and grandparents who have kids and you'd like to incentivize them. Maybe maybe they they're postponing mayors. They're postponing a family, and they're postponing getting house, but you know, if in fact, there's going to be a housing shortage because this generation is enormous, and we're not going to have enough houses that June drive housing prices up which could be good. If you're an investor and you buy a home as an investment, but what about the kids and the grandkids? So there are several things we can talk about you've made a lot of money in the market. 4._0._1._K's probably doubled in the last few years, your IRA's of probably doubled in the last few years. You're probably okay financially. If you're in that middle to upper middle class, and you're putting your you put your kids through college. So how do you help them? So many people John have a nice, you know, several hundred thousand dollars in their IRA few hundred thousand three four or five hundred thousand bucks in their IRA. They're in their fifties. And they say I don't want to touch that money because I can't touch on fifty nine and a half that is not necessarily true. A lot of millennials have not buying houses. I can't afford the downpayment that's bunk because we now have the same kind of programs. We had ten years ago. Three percent down programs. They can get the down payment money and ain't that hard. And if you want them to earn it just say earn it yourself you buy a three four hundred thousand dollar house. All you need by ten grand. Really? Yeah. Jay programs have five percent down. But there was a way back in the day. It was like a hundred thousand dollar limit or something like that. Or you can buy under the four seventy two or whatever the four seven four hundred seventeen a little bit higher. Depending on where you are. Right. Yeah. You can buy a home with like three percent. I didn't know that. Yes. So so now, you can get into the home. They think it's twenty percent because that's the standard, right? But you can get in with three percent down. Now, granted if your parents can give you the twenty percent that would help because you get a better interest rate, and you wanna PM I and all that stuff. But let's just go back your mom and dad can act they have a five hundred thousand dollar IRA. All right. You know, they do or four hundred thousand they can help you. They can help you by taking some money out of that IRA and making annual gifts to help support you until you get married until you have when you get married. There's usually two incomes and the house becomes way more affordable. Right. Of course. So so now, they have this four hundred thousand five hundred thousand dollars. We've talked about. Seventy two t elections a lot on this program. Why not if you have put my calculator up if you have a four hundred thousand dollar IRA, and let's say you're fifty years old, right? It probably have a life expectancy of another thirty eight years or so and they have ours come up a little bit. You can probably take. Fifteen hundred bucks a month. I'm making that number up. But it's close enough for our purposes here, you can probably take fifteen hundred dollars a month out of that IRA. If you will it won't stunt, the growth that much of the IRA it'll stunned by eighteen thousand bucks a year. You got a half million? You got four hundred thousand if you earned three or four percent. You can make that up. And if you earn five or ten percent, it's significantly more. So so now, you've got eighteen thousand bucks a year in one year, you could make a gift to your kid or grandkid, and they could use that money as a down payment on all over the next several.

"February thirty four minutes past the hour and house speaker Nancy Pelosi declaring Thursday that there will be no wall money in any compromise border security deal as she and President Trump signaled congressional negotiators may Ness by demands for a border proposal that prompted President Trump to say he's more than likely not waiting for congressional approval. There's no wall. It doesn't work. She's just playing games. So if there's no wall, it doesn't work, and we're building the wall right now been a lot of people don't know that. But we have a lot of wall under construction we've given out a lot of contracts over the last three or four good contracts. A lot of Wallis soon going to be under construction. We will be finishing up designed on certain areas. The most important areas waiting for this committee. And I've told a lot of people I don't expect much coming out of the committee because I keep hearing the words that will give you what you want. But we're not going to give you. Well, the problem is if they don't give us a while, it doesn't work without a wall. It doesn't work. We have caravans right now coming up from Honduras. We give a lot of money to which is stopping by the way. But we pay hundreds of millions of dollars to Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and then they have caravans leaving their country coming up here. And by the way, if you go to Tijuana, and you take down that wall. You'll have so many people coming into our country that dancy Pelosi won't be begging for a wall. She'll be begging for all she will say, Mr President, please, please.

I think it's about the people that you see right here. It's also working with these people have been incredible. We have had some incredible reporting and we've had incredible Republican support. The problem is the Democrats, you know, when they say, we don't want to build as an example. We don't want to build the wall because it doesn't work visits. Immoral. Well, it's also more on the people that come into our country that shouldn't be there and kill people. That's immoral to. That's a lot more. So, but I really think it's going to be a speech is going to cover a lot of territory, but part of it's going to be entity. Yuck. There's gonna be a wall. Physical barriers. No. Because if there's no wallet doesn't work. She's just playing games. So if there's no wall get doesn't work, and we're building the wall right now. There's a lot of people don't know that.

"I'm a musician and actor storyteller, essentially, I was just like, okay. Clearly, I'm interested in creativity. And what I see I think creativity is almost like a FINA type of consciousness. It's what you actually see what you can actually look at the processes of it doesn't like it's an expression of an expression of exactly the features of consciousness, and I think you're utilizing all of your brain. And all of your different aspects of what you are in order to be creative. I was drawing heavily on people who done more qualitative. Studies of the creative processes notably. Gyco Wallis, for example, who went and interviewed like hundreds of eminent creatives, and that doesn't just mean fine artists and musicians also means chemists architects, and he was like, well, what's the commonality between all of your processes? And it's it's nice to think about as problem solving, right and creativity is problem solving innovation. And so I kind of used those sort of frameworks and and for this. This really helped me know where to look as far as EEG or physiology is concerned and also can't say things like computational creativity and bringing in psychology models like flow. And so I find a signature brain pattern for when people were like performing at their peak, creative it when they're in flow that is too long winded. -ly answer your okay? So we know what is this brain signature for creativity. And yeah, it's actually a complex one, right? And so flow, by my definition, nor by definition is a complex cognitive behavior. I it's it goes beyond focus and goes beyond like relaxation. It seems to be in a sweet spot between the two places, and my hypothesis was that it wouldn't come from one particular part of the brain. It's not much. From that perspective. And I went into this idea of connections theories, which is the whole of the brain is required in order to create higher cognitive behavior such as that. So there are multiple regions of the brain involved, and there's different activation patterns that are involved when you look at it through time, and I looked at it, obviously. Yeah. EEG musicians and other people looked at using Mre studies, and they looked at rappers and lyricists and poets and similar areas are coming out similar activation patterns are coming out. And what it says to me is really good news because it means that it's domain specific. It doesn't matter if you're talking or or making music or whatever it is. So it's like what is showing to me is that there's a common neural network the same way you, and I share the same memory systems. But you know, we access those memories differently memories are different. Right. So that's that's I think flow means different things to different people's. If you are creative flow means being really, creative for an athlete means higher performance. You know It it. could mean employee engagement wellbeing and other areas, right? Let's dig into that for a minute. And then we'll get back to what this common brain network apps. So when you look at flow, you're quite correct and saying it is different things to different people. So when I think about when I'm most inflow, it's various points. Yeah. One is sweet like ten pm and one AM. That's what I've always done my best work. Yeah. It wouldn't. Nobody bothers you. You're not hungry. There's nothing to distract you. And so you're just in this own. I've been extraordinarily creative ideas. Feel like they're coming out of nowhere. And you just wanna keep making and I could be doing something boring computational based boring stuff. Yeah. Or I could be doing something that's really engaged making clothing or making art, you know, creating new ideas or programs or protocols, and they all contain the same sensation of being simply me and the content and nothing else matters of that want. So it doesn't matter if it's boring work either. You can feel a distinct difference. Yes. I don't perceive it as boring it something that I would normally see his boring that might be wrote. But you do it with the sort of inspired sense sense of sort of inspiration. The sent for me sense of inspiration sense of, you know, excitement about at a sense of anything's possible, and your sort of swimming with the content. So that's one flow..
Minnesota Timberwolves teammates caught off guard by Jimmy Butler trade demand
"Coa Leonard is you know, he's an MVP level player in the NBA. Jimmy Butler is an outstanding player, but he's. Level below that, and he's older. And I think the question too is this isn't breaking up in Minnesota because he doesn't like Tom tiptoe. He's always had a good relationship with Tibbett. Oh, now it's strained as this process plays out and he doesn't get the trade and you'll see become probably more at odds. I think that's starting to happen. But the fact is he credits Tom thibodeau a great deal with his development of player. Last pick of the first round out of Marquette, who went to Portsmouth and the pre-draft process was fighting to just be a first round pick and becomes an all star max player in Chicago, and the fact that if you're another team and you're saying he's walking away from Tibbs, he's walking away from this team. Could he do that to us after seven months? And I think that factors into your thinking too, about what you give up for him? One hundred percent, right? I mean, he that extension that. Minnesota offered him would be available six months after your quired him, and he's not going to accept, you know, four years, one hundred million dollars. He is certainly renegotiate renegotiate his contract. But as Minnesota learned this summer, when you're over the cap, you can't go about doing it and it would take gutting, you're going your roster to do it. And you know what I've learned is that when you go out and make these type of trades, you're always chasing that trade and you're trying to acquire other pieces to make that player happy. And you're really, you're really hurting your roster to do. So. I mean, I mean the the Darren Williams trade back in two thousand eleven in the year later to follow up with Jerry Wallis because you're trying to convince Williams to stay or your trading multiple draft picks because you're trying to convince that player to stay in free agency. And I think that's where. That's where the situation in Toronto with Colli that Masais got a good comfort level with that roster there with Kyle Lowry surge Bach, and some of the younger players Dhillon. Right. And then Lee Valance Eunice that he doesn't have to go out there and go out and get it Jimmy Butler PO. Possibly that he says, I can go to, you know, I can go to battle with these guys that when fifty nine games with Colli Leonard. And that's a lot different than maybe the team like Brooklyn who acquires Butler and then says, what other pieces can I go out and get to try to piece his player to make us competitive? And I think that's really where teams really get themselves in
Identity: Who Am I Anyway?
"Else. Hi, welcome to the road to you. I'm Brad to Gable joined by my husband. We'd like to invite you to join us is we have real conversations about truth, grace and living out our Christian faith.

So grab a drink buckle up, and let's head on down that long road home. Good morning. Brandy. Good morning, Matt. And how are you doing this morning? I'm over. Right. I didn't sleep. Great. Yeah, me neither. And as a result, I'm maybe doing less than great. You know, I dreamt about skunks. Oh, that's nice. It wasn't because I could actually smell them. Oh, well, it was weird. I don't know that I've ever had a drain where I could actually smell something in it. Right, but I was smelling skunks. Yes, I was talking to my brother awhile back and talking about how well now that marijuana is legal, it's hard to know if you're smelling a skunk or you're smelling somebody's recreational marijuana. It's possible that it was there was a little bit of real life intruding upon your dream. They hurt you. Wanna come on in and smelling like skunk it was. It was. It was a weird dream. Yeah, very gunky things to consider. Anyway, not why we're here. Right? So this morning we're gonna. We're gonna talk about identity, but I, I wanted to share some stuff with you because I mean, the name of our show kind of suggests that we dig road trips. We'd need a whole summer series on road trips from the bible. Right? I took a road trip this summer. Yeah, which we've already talked about, but we didn't talk about one of my favorite places that we stopped on this road trip. You hear about it, it's a place you've been to. Actually I haven't. We have driven past driven past it. I've gone. Wow. I'd like to stop their aunt, but I'd like to when we drop our daughter off, I've already decided this when we draw our Nodar off to watch him in a couple of years. That's a soothing. She wants to go to the base in Montana SME that right. We on our way back. We are going to stop and we're going to linger in Wallace, Idaho. That sounds good because this is a funny little town and I love it so so much. Okay. Well, as Idaho, that's we're gonna talk about really, really quick. We'll get onto a real subject. Okay. Wallace was founded in eighteen eighty four. It is according to Wikipedia, they principal town of the quarterlane silver mining district it produced more silver than any other mining district in the US. Wow, that's all it does. Is they mind for silver and there's. A lot of shops that would let you know that they mine for silver. Every single building in Wallis is on the national register, historic places. You're kidding? No, because it's I ninety kind of passes right? Right? And the way that they wanted to make the highway go. It was going to essentially decimate all of Wallace back in the seventies, they were able to get it on the national historic register, and so every building must be preserved, it's fabulous. I'm thinking what better way to salvage your town then? Say it's a historical place which it is. I mean, it's an all of these buildings are pretty much from the turn of the century in two thousand and four on September twenty. Fifth, there Mayor, Ron, Garrett, tone proclaimed Wallace to be the center of the universe. Precisely it is a sewer access cover on one of their streets that is the exact okay center of the universe. They've got like a manhole cover that says center of the universe
