Leslie Jamison on Jenny Offill's Book 'Weather'

"Leslie Jamison is here in the studio. Her most recent book is make it screen and make it burn essays which was reviewed in the book review last fall all but she's here now to talk about another book. She reviewed this week on our cover. Jennie O. Foles Weather Leslie. Thanks for being here. It's so wonderful to be here so you. Let's first talk about Jenny full. Who she is? Pearl Siegel staff critic for the Times. Were a profile of Jennie O.. Full in this this week's issue of the New York Times magazine but give us a sense of who this writer is. When I think about Daniel's work and why it matters and why I think it's really created aided the sense of excitement around so many readers I think part of it you know she writes about motherhood and marriage and things that can get lumped under the general neural umbrella term domesticity but she brings them to life in these incredibly razor-sharp ways and there shouldn't even be a but conjunction to that sentence right like wire wire those states of being not razor-sharp somehow but but sometimes they can get seen as softer sentimental and she brings both very different form and a very different tone to how how she writes about them and how she does justice to their emotional extremity? Now I'm thinking that we have to make a challenge to ourselves not to use the word but for the rest of this partnership. I think there we go that we're are GONNA fail so we'll just we'll we'll put that aside. This book weather is her third novel her. I was last things and then it took her fifteen years to write. Her neck spoke department of speculation which came out in two thousand fourteen and was one of our ten best books of the year. And I feel like that book really brought her to you. A wider attention perhaps not bestseller list attention but it was hugely critically acclaimed and beloved by readers. Let's start talk a little a bit about that book and why it struck such a chord and I think it's no accident when you said it was like fifteen years until the next book which actually sort of part of the plot of Department of speculation too. It's like there's a writer who is taking a long time to put her second novel. Part of I think you know my understanding from interviews. She's done. The story of that book has that it started as a much more conventionally structured novel and it sort of took her a long time to whittle it down to its really searing form which is a very a fragmented form where you feel like you're getting these absolutely essential bursts of exerience. I think her agent described at once as more like an x Ray than a body which I thought was such such an amazing evocation of how it works and so part of why it caught. Hold I think is that it wasn't it wasn't just very smart about feeling and it had this strong long hard and it's about a infidelity and marriage sort of preparing itself but it also it seemed to find a new language for feeling a new structure for feeling the guy I want to go back to that the fragments Manson the structure for people who've not Reggiani Oval. We should say this. Her books are really short. They're really really short but they are packed and yet they don't feel dense and part of that is due to structure and you use the word fragments. People use the word fragments or fragmentary or cones. Let's talk about a house. She structures these books because it is especially when department speculation came out in two thousand fourteen. It felt very different from what was being written and it felt very very different from the way in which a domestic novel was being written. You know it makes me think a little bit about the way that like Virginia Woolf would describe moments of being you know that somehow we have these moments where it feels like something about experience is intensified or crystallized on. I think Jenny has a real knack for like putting her finger on the pulse of those moment. So maybe it's just an ordinary moment like in this latest novel. where she comes home from the her narrator comes home from feeling this intense panic about climate aamot change and her sons playing minecraft noon? SORTA get like putty off of his fingers. Like it's not in a dramatic sense like it's that's not a huge plot point happening in that moment but she manages manages to find these ways that seemingly insignificant moments if you if you describe them so precisely and locate some kind of feeling what's happening in them quivering inside them. She does justice to it and the way that her books are structured. I don't think there are like us in this weather. There are parts. I can't remember if in Department of Speculation Stephen divided into chapters but it's these single paragraphs are a few paragraphs spaced apart on the page. So not not only. Is it a small book but it actually. I mean you could theoretically sit down and read it in a couple of hours I did. You did theory. You could sit down down and read it very quickly and one of the things that I think people then mistakenly assume is that. Oh you know sort of hastily written you get the cents though once you are reading it that not at all does feel something. That is very much labored over almost like poetry in terms of the precision of the ways in which the things that she's putting into those little sections as you pointed out it's often about the contrast in a given moment between something very granular and domestic and personal and then some larger thought. That's going on or something happening in the greater world. Do you think that was what was is so striking about department of speculation. The fact that she was doing not that she was taking something like a domestic novel. That was you know. Just as you said kind of a story of a Brooklyn Glenn Mother and infidelity and work life balance and these things that so many books are about but infusing in it these larger the issues. I think that's a really good point that so often. What makes these like short bursts? CLO- fuel incandescent our field. Charged is is that they're very granular. But they're also holding some kind of emotional intensity and I think when you're writing about something like infidelity where there's both the danger of somehow telling a story that people feel like they've heard before story that feels intrinsically melodramatic. It can really bring out the humanity of the story to pay attention to the granularity of of like a one scene. That's rising to mind from that novel is like the narrator after a conflict with her husband going to stay at a hotel overnight and and like preying on the carpet of the hotel floor. But it's like it's like that hotel carpeting that holds so much feeling rather than just like the larger obstruction of of infidelity per se. Or something and so I think it is that scale shifting that can happen in a space of a paragraph. Can that happen across the course the whole book. That's also really operative in this latest book. where the skills or even bigger because among other things about climate change is like one of the biggest skills yes yes yeah? Let's talk about weather and let's start start with what it's about even though you know as we think people are probably sensing when you talk about Jenny ovals work. It really isn't about plot. Yeah but what is whether yeah so the narrator of weather is a mother who years ago dropped out of a PhD program and it's working as university librarian and she takes a job job working for her former mentor. Who does a podcast about climate change? where she's answering all the letters that are coming in response to this podcast so there are a few different? There's the kind of plot of her I went to the overhauls narrator to answer my letters to this cast. I'm just kidding. I love answering your letters I would be. I thought you were GonNa even save answer my letters I was like I have a few letters. Live right Yeah I mean you know you have this narrators mother you have her as a wife wife you have her as a a worker and maybe a worker who feels a bit lost in the world. There's also for me. One of the most compelling plot lines in the book is about the narrators relationship with her brother. WHO's a recovering addict? He gets married and then has a a baby and her role in his life and her sort of desperate hope that he can put his life together. Other was a really moving strand among strands for me as well presumably. That's very deliberate. Bringing new life into a world that is in crisis crisis and feels like it's ending and I think that's one of the abiding emotional. Tensions in the book is like the the world is always beginning and ending at once. And maybe maybe there's something about that truism that has felt universal through time but it has a particular acuity now or the world is is it's ending he's send away by these factors that are at work but that dynamic of like yes the world is ending but also you wake up in the morning and you're touching base with your brother overtaxed to make sure he and the baby are doing okay that both of those are real on. Both of those are happening. I think we're seeing a wave of climate fiction and it's taking all of these different forms. Probably a most noticeably post apocalyptic and dystopia although there are also books like Richard powerhouses over story sometimes metaphorical Oracle sometimes very reality based feels different. Though I mean how does this differ from other fiction looking at climate and climate. Change for starters. You don't have that kind of like emotional. Buffer of the post apocalyptic landscape that emotional buffer mailing a strange way to describe a postal puck landscape. But it's like if the apocalypse is happening thing in Brooklyn Public School like that's the stage set for the book it feels more disquieting in certain ways because it's closer to home. It's not like Cormac McCarthy novel where a father and Zahn are like traveling the chart landscape like it's more immediate in that way and I think one of the challenges of writing about climate change is how to take this thing that is essentially on a larger scale than our minds can hold and how to make it a narrative we can hold. There's this moment early on in weather where the narrator is thinking about her son allies elementary school and she says the problem with the school is that it's not a bill on a human scale feels too large for these little children who are going into it and I I think in a way that lays out one of the aesthetic challenges the book right. It's like climate. Change isn't quite on a human scale but narrative is on a human scale. So how do you translate. How does she do it? Part of it has to do with what we're talking about a little bit earlier these questions of sort of scale shifting and simultaneity where you had these big questions of like the end of the world coming up either through the letters that are coming into this podcast or you know this narrator is doing what I think. We all do obsessive googling about lots of things where she's sort. I'm trying to see like how hot is it going to be in New York City and you know when her son is sixty years old or something like that and getting so freaked out by these numbers so you sort of have those larger questions that are always coming up against the interpersonal. TRAUMAS the books. So either it's like the obstruction of like how hot is the World GonNA get comes up up against the body of her actual son. She's imagining at age. Sixty or thinking about like the horsemen of the apocalypse. Coming in comes up against you know coming home ends ends giving the dog. His Lover Frog Toy. You know so the becomes on a human scale because we see a particular human with a particular life a particular brother who's giving bringing new life into the world that all of those abstract questions are hitting all of those granular

Kate Murdoch Discusses Her Newest Masterpiece 'The Orange Grove'

"You've traveled through France you probably went to the side live. You could only wonder at the opulence of the King's palace petition. Also wonder how the French court operated will thanks to Cape Murdoch. We get an idea. Welcome back again you descriptions of the palace and what the people were wearing lean and even the food that was served. We're really vivid. There was a lot of research he must have done. Yes and it also comes about because of my because I was an office for so many years. So grading visuals is really important to me. I like to read visuals and I like to write them. So yeah that's part of it. Also but yes I had to get. Did you know there are a number of things like at one stage. I had a carriage clock on a mantle and carriage clocks when invented like that new I was constantly rating like I did a number of proofs just obviously for those types of things and what about the Masa Pancake. Yes I came across that somewhere and I can't remember Web ed but there was something like that Croatia's on point for the coach and Yes it was as realistic as possible. this was all around seventeen fifty seventeen. I five seventeen o five so the louise were in prisons whether the fourteenth But the book is called the Orange Grove. And that's not in beside who owns the Orange Grove and palace the duke and Duchess Stumbles Linage and yes. It's a beautiful chateau. It's an Orange Grove and extensive grounds and manicured gardens will well. He's Juke Hugo let's make it easy and The touches Charlotte now. They have a daughter Amelia. But there's also a number of mistress yes as mistresses and up to this. You know the time. The book said they've all been co-existing quite happily. It hasn't been too many problems uh-huh but all of a sudden that changes with the arrival of the new mistress Latisha. Well what I couldn't believe is the the duchess in the five mistresses. All went out from a picnic and they had a very cordial social time. They even discuss the merits of marriage over missing. That's right I take it with your research. Could that conversation really go on. Yes I believe so because I think that the tension amongst these women would have reached a fever pitch at times and that was the whole the whole idea of that was what got me rushing. This story in the first place is because very early on. I read a In academic paper about Prince of the time who had twelve mistresses and they all followed behind in these carriages and they all had the same You know Equi posh was the word that's used to end the same library and everything was the same and this immediately intrigued me and I thought well how would they get along. Would they be friends with any of them be friends and most importantly how with the wife handle the situation and this is set up so you know the the same that you referred to. I'm usually the mistress's know what to say. And what not to say. And they keep keep the council and they they ruffle her the duchess's feathers but in that particular sane on riot decides to stand up to her a little beach to the shock. Give it all the other women. So what what. Why didn't why didn't the duchess the other mistresses like the newest the fifth mistress? While she's she's very young and beautiful for one and she's also someone who gecas actually fallen in love with so. That hasn't happened before. No what I call her. The child concrete and will of course if the king is falling in love with her. He's not having any relationships with any of the other mistresses press'. Well maybe but you know this elaine who is desperately needs his Not Much affection but his logistics logistics. Shall we say yes. What's her problem? Well she's desperate for love wherever she can find it. She's a very insecure person. She's he's definitely being threatened. Yes and her husband. I'm lates laugh. That costs a lot of money. He's Gambler and She has to continue to fund him. And you know her. His life is dependent on her success within that setting so yes it isn't you've mentioned Henry Henry and Well she is actually had a daughter by the king yes salon challenge Sir There's another child around to the SES. Isabela neither mistresses son. Thomas and I I would win the fifth Mistress the teasha becomes pregnant. Everybody will only everybody else worries if it's Zahn years and that was the other thing that I should've mentioned that the other reason that she's a threat because up to that point the duchess hasn't been able to provide an air and so she realizes houses. This young girl could really position by by doing that so when she asks yes when she becomes pregnant the stakes are raised even higher which leads to some a lot of people having a grudge against Latisha and wanting to do her harm. That's the two children children. Thomasson Solange have the run of the palace the Orange Groves secret. They like to go there to hide and seek they also like to play hide and seek in the palace and to learn a lot of the palace secrets. Yes they learn about law. By what's Li- Li- is a substance that was used for cleaning and I decided to have it be used Chew Harm. I'm someone in the story if I want to go. We knocked telling her LA is placed in undergarments and causes quite a bit image. So yeah it Welson Rashes in hates and faints. Oh well that's not the only damage and here. I'm passing being A. I'm going to get Cape Murdoch to read from page one hundred seventy nine. Because this is all about a black doc mass. Let's say crucifixes must be inscribed on the soles of the fate the celebrant should be cloaked in black back and naked beneath the ideal animal for sacrifice is a girl or a peak the vessel should be placed on the naked body of a woman in place of consecrated bread we must use a decompose turnip and the blood of the slaughtered animal. Replaces the consecrated wine. Madam Fulbright gave a wicked smile. Her eyes glinting. I'll kill the peak having had experienced at the task. Where is the best place for the mass to be performed? Charlotte pondered the question gazing out of the pavilion windows towards the Orange Grove. It's symmetrical rows of trees. Stretching into the distance. The tree canopies with thick and the leaves glossy casting deputy sheriff as long the gravel pathways ace the Orange Grove Child Charlotte replied. No one will see us and made all that foilage. Sorry the reason for this. Who is she doing who she actually getting? The black mess said four. You'll have to read to find out now this isn't the owning mythical magical magical todd Thing in this terret cod readings. Yes so there's a character called remand Davila who comes to the Chateau and he's purposes to entertain attain the women with his he's ratings and the civil Rating Terry waiting saints throughout the novels. So I started to try and write them and it just was not feeling rush. I thought I'm really going to have to learn to read them because otherwise people are going to read it and they'll be able to tell that I have no idea what I'm hoping so I teach you sat up pack of the cards and when I started looking at them and looking at some of the descriptions of of at all I was very skeptical. This is a load of rubbish and then as I kind of didn't more and more I ended up kind of locking them and now I have my pack. It's interesting because you know you do the ratings. And we we hear about king of swords and seven of swords and all these other ones and and of course with the insider of an author you can go back and write whatever you like but as we're reading way building story and I had to laugh about this because because you know they was at. It was really professional. Tear raiders in the courts. At the time I didn't rate of that specifically now that I thought it it was quite possible to have somebody like that. Yeah I mean. There are all kinds of entertainments that they had the time. I'm the opera ballet was featured in the novel is certainly. There's out if it was your written with an artist cy looking at it I look I laughed about this. The Professional Tara Cod Rita. Now I think the best fortune telling was done by his prostitute friend who said you are a bad man with noble intentions. Didn't you will be good. You just don't know it yet but there are forged love letters jewell secret visits to a convent and a priest who is tout told to doll his heart. Blood with frigid air prayer and whip but back to the side with all the court his planning and plotting and scheming. It's the Esto. The Duke and Duchess is twelve year old daughter. WHO's introduced or my case in the hope? He would remember her in years to come but it wasn't her. It was the word games that he played with. LETITIA captivated him yes well. She ended up playing with Madame for Bray and he was watching and he is nine as has being very good at the word Games of course and yeah I think just they conversation they they start to be quite interested in another but it's very forbidden. ooh ooh forbidden stuff. This cade Murdoch. You've given US seventeen o five France Orange Grove.

Just Enough To Be Dangerous

"So let's start out about the Zenko on from last week's podcast episode so this Cohen is called announcement and it goes was like this tons on route. Sixty postal cards on the last day of his life and asks independent to mail them then he passed away. The cards words read. I am departing from this world. This is my last announcement tons on July twenty seventh eighteen ninety two. This is an interesting one. I picked it because it's a little different than than most of the Cohen said. I've shared before and for me. The very first thing to come to mind is what would I be doing with the time I had on my last day. Would I be writing sixty postal cards on the last stay of my life and asked him to be mailed out the other thing that stood out to me was all his says is MD party from this world. And this is my last announcement name Amo date and to magic writing him writing this sixty times. It was comical to me when I read it at an part of why it was comical. Oh because I don't know why someone would do that. I don't know if there are cultural understandings of this. That don't make makes sense to me because of where when I was raised versus you know where where and when the story arose. I don't know but I thought thought it was interesting to share some of the thoughts that came from this in the Patriots Group and the discussion. That was going on in there so I WANNA share a couple of of these because I hadn't really thought about it this way. The first thought comes from Nancy. Who says I'd like to comment about the Zenko on announcement and then she goes on to say? Wow to come to the end of your life like tons on. This Cohen spoke to me about living a life with no regrets in making the preparations for your death. Then she goes on to say took a course a few years ago following Stephen Levine's book a year to live. We met monthly and prepared for our death. As though we were all given the news that we had a year to live. It was a tough journey to go through but helped me to see what I was resisting. In this truth that we all die by the result from this personal study was a greater appreciation for the life. I have now and more at peace with death as I believe tons John was now. That's an aspect of this that I haven't thought about. She was impressed with the preparation that went into Tons Zahn preparing for his death because most of us don't prepare for it right at it comes as a surprise and the only way we would prepare for it as we. We happen to have a terminal illness or something that really gives us an advanced warning. Then it's coming and I think in a way you know if you can prepare for it you're you're one of the lucky ones. Most people don't get to. They don't get to say their final goodbyes. They don't get to make peace with Parents or siblings or loved ones. They don't don't they. Don't get the chance to go. Check off a few things from their bucket. Lists they just live life thinking that They've got plenty of time and then boom boom they're gone and I hadn't thought about this aspect of it with with tons on if he's writing his His announcements here that he's departing. He's obviously done his preparation. I hadn't thought about it from that perspective that It's it's cool that he had the chance to do his last announcement to be prepared repaired for his death so that to me tells me that he had been thinking about it and perhaps thinking about it often to the point where it's not this scary. You think that it's like oh no. When is it coming? So that's that's kind of a fun way to to think about that. And then the other thought comes from Stefan also in the Patriot group and and he says Tanzanian knew his time was due. He mailed the cards at the appropriate time which was acceptance of his immediate fate. My feeling is that he simply felt his life was complete. Wasn't going to deny death or trying to avoid it here. It is why not embrace it by embracing it. He didn't leave his body. Okay with any suffering. At least over his death and one could hope that if he was so in tuned with his end that he didn't have any suffering left in his life either if this is true and he had no suffering left in his life mailing these cards right before his death could have very well been his moment of realizing enlightenment and now that that's a fun thought again. I hadn't really thought about it from that perspective because I was kind of laughing at the whole concept of of writing the departure announcement you know in our day and age. We see this on facebook from time to time rag where someone says. Hey here's this announcement. I'M GONNA BE LEAVING ACE book and I WanNa make sure all of you. Now that I'm leaving and we we almost laugh at that because it's like okay thank you. And so I- correlated those thoughts when I read this co on thought. There's there's tons on. Hey thanks tons on You're leaving but it hadn't crossed mind that we're not talking about just a departure like death for a Lotta people as a very very big deal and for him. It seemed like I was interpreting it. Like maybe it's not a big deal to like. Hey I'm leaving. Just say now. And here's the announcement that says this is the DAMN MD partying. It wasn't even like let me tell you my final thoughts on this or that it was just a very simple thing and the more I think about this the more uh I realize you know I kinda hope that's how it is for me that If I knew today was my last day you know. I don't know that I would have a whole lot left to say because if I did. Why haven't I been been saying that up until now I? I would like to think that I've been living my life in a way if the end came and it was today or tomorrow they wouldn't be a whole lot that's been left unsaid. The people that I love now that I love them them and and my announcement could be as simple as hey. I'm departing from this world. This is my last announcement and then my name and the date so anyway for me. This Cohen gives me a lot to think about In terms of my life and my preparations from debt for death. And how am I living my life life with the knowledge that it could end at any moment so this was a fun one to explore and to discuss after getting some of the insight from the numbers of the group and Just playing with this a little bit more on in my head. So that's the Zenko on announcement so so now. I want to jump into the topic that I wanted to discuss today. which is just enough to be dangerous now? I think I would assume that many of you have heard this expression of knowing knowing something just enough to be dangerous. I've heard this in the context. Probably most often referring to languages in the in the context of learning two languages. There's this expression that I know just enough to be dangerous. which implies that I know enough that I can start talking in? Someone's going to think that I speak speak the language so then they'll start speaking to me then. I might not understand them because I didn't know as much as I thought that I knew so that that's where I think that expression that's where I hear most in that context of language but I I've thought about this recently because this week or over the weekend my youngest daughter gee-gee four started to learn how to ride a bike and I took the training wheels off for her and then my wife would would stand down on one end of the road and I would stand kind of on the other and we would essentially help Digi get going and then kind of fear ear her off in the direction of the other and the one standing on their would catch her turnaround. We'll do it the same. She was learning to ride the bike. And of course at that age agents. It's a very exciting thing. And as soon as she realizes she can do that wants. She's like okay. Now let me do it alone and it reminded me of how we have this tendency that soon as we start to learn something and we did it once or twice in. It's working out. Of course we think okay good I got it and that's that stage of knowing something just enough to be dangerous in this case I was thinking with concern like. Oh let's let's not let her just just go all out because she may have mastered writing from from my wife to me from me to my wife but what happens when she tries to go up the sidewalk sidewalk or when she tries to turn or you introduce some new variable. And that's the moment when she knew just enough to be dangerous and can follow they get hurt. And I've experienced this another aspects of life as well with teaching people to Paraglider Para Motor. Paragliding is is a difficult sport to get into anyone who knows how to do. It will probably tell you that it looks kind of easy and I think think a lot of people who get into the sport. Get into it thinking they're gonNA learn in it's going to be easy but the truth is takes a lot of time in a lot of energy in a lot of effort her and in some ways A lot of patients because people start to learn one aspect of it. Then you start out learning how to had a kite that wing Over your head. It's essentially a giant fabric wing and with the wind if floods overhead. kind of like a kite. Would learn to control

New Federal Overtime Rule Takes Effect Jan. 1

"Which workers should get paid extra for working long hours? That question is at the heart of a new overtime rule. From the trump administration more workers now now qualify for overtime although far fewer workers will qualify under a rule that was proposed under President Obama. NPR's Alina Seljuk reports which the number of workers now eligible for overtime pay is growing by one point three million people that's because the Labor Department is changing the threshold for the kind of salary. Worker has to make qualify. Here's former Labor Department's chief economist. Heidi Sheer Holtz. There's just a broad rule that generally early people who work more than forty hours a week in this country are eligible for overtime pay and this one is about who's exempted from those protections. The people who get paid by the hour already have overtime pay guarantees. So this rule is for salaried workers and the idea behind it was that people who are say bona fide managers managers or supervisors don't need overtime pay protections. Here's Paula Zahn with the worker advocacy group National Employment Law project overtime rules a lot like a minimum wage for the middle class. They make sure workers have time for their personal lives by protecting the forty hour. Work Week and you know there was an exemption for highly paid managers and professionals. Who are you know the assumption was? They had the bargaining power to negotiate their own pay and work schedules. Except the salary level has eroded over the decades so people making as little as twenty four thousand dollars a year until today could have been denied overtime. Pay Think fast food or retail managers. The new trump role gives that threshold a boost up to nearly thirty six thousand dollars which she says mainly affect those lower-paid frontline managers she. He says before today six percent of full time salaried workers were eligible the trump administration's rule raise it to just around fifteen percent sheer sure Holson worked in the Obama administration on another rule that would have by now extended overtime pay to more than twice as many workers she says by today would have guaranteed overtime. Pay Okay for managers making as much as fifty one thousand dollars a year but that rule was challenged by the business community and blocked by a federal judge in Texas the trump administration ernest ration- chose not to defend it but wrote its own version. Here's Mark Friedman Vice President for workplace policy the US Chamber of Commerce. We think that a more narrow a more refined sour special was was in order. And that's what this administration has put in place. Besides Friedman says many businesses did adjust to the Obama era rule for example changing schedules reshuffling duties or raising the salary for lower paid managers to keep them exempt from overtime pay and so he he says a lot of employers are already compliant with the new trump administration rule. A lot of the adjustments. That might have happened with already. Happened back in two thousand sixteen. Meanwhile argue the trump role is a missed opportunity. Well technically it's an increase in reality. It was a rollback a token increase increase that was aimed at blocking something. More significant and San points out. Multiple states have already taken on overtime. Pay going beyond the new federal

Trump Welcomes a Senate Impeachment Trial

The Lead with Jake Tapper

Trump Welcomes a Senate Impeachment Trial

"Welcome to the lead on Jake Tapper. We begin today with the politics. Lead president trump practically daring house. Democrats to impeach him and declaring he welcomes a senate trial across process that could theoretically get underway by Christmas. Now we've now heard and seen twelve witnesses testifying publicly seven hearings over five days while everyone sorting through the testimony. We should note that the most damning evidence came. I'm straight from the Horse's mouths fact. President trump asked the Ukrainian president to investigate the bites. We know this not only because the rough transcript of the July twentieth call of the White House released but because president trump admitted it publicly. Yeah well I would think that if they were honest about it that SORTA major investigation into the Bison is very simple very simple answer indeed and what was the trump administration willing to do to secure secure this investigation into the bites. Were they willing to hold off a White House meeting which Presidents Alinsky desperately wanted to show US support to his public look into Putin. Well here's US ambassador to the EU. Gordon Zahn want. I know that members of this committee frequently frame. These complicated issues in the form of a simple question was there a quid pro quo as I testified previously with regard to the requested White House call and the White House meeting. The answer is yes. Yes silent says no question it was a quid pro quo. Hey Ukraine you want the White House meeting you need to announce these investigations. Okay now. What about that four hundred million dollars in USA? That Ukraine crane also desperately wanted well acting White House Chief-of-staff Mick Mulvaney explained why that was held up. He said so on camera now. He said he did so. So the president because the president wanted an investigation into Ukraine's role in the two thousand sixteen election. The look back to what happened happened in two thousand sixteen certainly was part of the thing that he was worried about in corruption with that nation. That is absolutely yup is a quid. Pro for funding will not flow unless the investigation into into Democratic Server. Happened as well. We do that all the time with with foreign policy and I have news for everybody get over it. There's going to be political influence in foreign policy. So yes there was a quid pro quo on the military aid and the other eight four hundred million dollars worth according to Mulvaney now two points on what Mulvaney said there one. He later tried to unseat what he said. And two veins portraying this as trying to get Ukraine to participate in a Justice Department investigation into two thousand sixteen but that is consistently. I'm not what president trump says he wants. President trump wants a look into a debunked conspiracy theory about Ukraine and the DNC server that US intelligence officials say was hacked by Russia not by Ukraine. Now this is just a fraction of the public evidence though these are facts seldom even acknowledged by the president's defenders. Facts are on our side. The facts are not facts are on the side. The truth is on the president's side the truth truth is the president of the United States by his own. Admission asked the foreign power to launch a major investigation into his political rival. Joe Biden his son and into a debunked conspiracy theory. These are investigations. That would help president trump politically and according to the president's own aides. The president used used a White House meeting and four hundred million taxpayer dollars to get Ukraine to do it now. You can debate whether or not it's criminal. You can debate whether or not it's impeachable impeachable. But you cannot debate whether or not those are the facts a CNN. Sara Murray reports Democrats are preparing to move forward with articles of impeachment. The president trump says bring it on. He's ready for an impeachment trial in the Senate Brinkley. I want to try. The Republican Party party has never been more unified Republican. Lawmakers have been working with the White House to prepare for a possible Senate trial coalescing around the notion that a long exhaustive Austin process may be the best course to protect the president. But I the house will have its say the house. Intelligence Committee and two other panels are crafting a report to serve but as the basis for articles of impeachment. Have the house. Judiciary Committee will consider after Thanksgiving. We have to decide. What does it mean and once we conclude our investigation If we decide that it means that the president should be held accountable. Democratic sources say a busy December is a head filled with public hearings and a likely vote in the House Judiciary Committee before before a full vote to impeach on the House floor which could come before Christmas Day. Potentially making trump the third president in history to be impeached. The House Democrats don't plan to wait for firsthand. Witnesses who have resisted testifying like acting chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney Secretary of state. Mike Pompeo and former national national security adviser John Bolton they keep taking it to court and a no. We're not going to wait until the courts decide that might be information. That's available to the Senate. We can't wait for that because again. It's a technique it's obstruction of justice. Then in January. The impeachment battle is expected addition to the Senate where trump's fate will collide with six Democratic senators looking to unseat him in the next presidential election. I will be there for the trial you swear or but after weeks of hearings impassioned arguments from Democrats. This president believes he is above the law beyond accountability. And in in my view there is nothing more dangerous than unethical president. WHO believes there are above the law? Even Republican has been critical of trump. Don't appear convinced impeachment. It is the remedy an impeachable offense should be compelling overwhelmingly clear and unambiguous. I've not heard evidence proving. The President committed bribery or extortion. Now the White House legal team believes that is one hundred percent in the president's interest to have this public trial in the Senate. Jake it seems like we will soon find out if they are right all right Sarah Murray. Let's discuss with our team here today. Let me start with you because we heard from one democratic more credit congressman Brad Sherman today. Who said that in his? You wouldn't hurt to get more information so I guess the question is do you think. Democrats have made sufficient efficient case. Should they. I mean this idea that they're not gonNA wait for the courts they're not gonNA take too long etc those. Those are not arguments about the substance of of the evidence. Those are arguments about timing and politics show. Should they keep going well. I mean first of all timing and politics do matter so I think that that is something they have to take into consideration. I think think they made a case for anybody who wants to actually look at the case honestly and take the information honestly. I think they made an absolutely airtight case. You know the president it has done something. That's impeachable the Republicans don't want to absorb that information and I actually don't think it would make any difference whether it was John. Paul Moulton was up there overdue. Where did you Liana if there was some how able to even get these people to testify? There is nothing I just really can't think of anything that would make the Republicans change their mind because what has been demonstrated over. The last week is so horrifying and so clear and they can still sit there and say well it's inappropriate. It's so far beyond inappropriate. Every argument that they've made has been completely destroyed so they came out and made all these defenses. That one by one were knocked down They're laugh with no defenses. It's up to just say well it's bad but it's not impeachable. So the argument that she's making here is basically the house. Republicans and Senate Republicans are just not good faith. Operators there's there's no evidence it's going to convince them even if president trump literally were to shoot somebody on fifth avenue and everybody saw it. Yeah that may be true. But I think there's a gap that gives Republicans particularly in the Senate the opening if House Democrats want to make the charge of bribery or extortion. However you put it you need to prove that

Renault looks for new partners, third-quarter revenue falls

"From the Nasdaq market site overlooking New York City's Times Square this is fast money I'm Melissa leak are traders on the Tim Seymour Karen Finer than guys johnny we're also joined against night by Markelle presidents have strategic wealth partners the busiest day of the earning season is officially in the books and there are a ton of after movers these in tally at all on our radar tonight while the very latest from each on their quarters but we begin with these stock to walk from the after hours that would be Amazon the tech giant falling hard after forty earnings miss we've got fourteen covered standing by to break down the results fast hunting gene monsters getting ready to fire up the old red phone in Minneapolis we kick things off with Warren Amazon's big conflict in his life for us in San Francisco Josh so Melissa besides the bottom top I've seen investors going to concentrate on this Q. Four guidance it is light calm between eighty six point five billion this shoot was eighty seven point four billion obviously for investors that's critical right cue for holiday quarter I did just have a call with Amazon let's see if O'Brien immediate call there are some one time items he did mention what you're going to weigh on on Q. Four just for example he mentioned a consumption tax kicking in Japan went from eight to ten percent that created some pre buying in his words in September that will have a net negative impact in Q. Four but the central question for investors is going to be the bottom line guys that was well below with the street was looking for on that call field a lot of questions about that is it all one shipping and he made it clear they are investment mode they do believe that's where they need to be there's a lot of cost in the short run he clearly believes that's where Emma Zahn needs to be and he says there's the evidence that it's paying off very good increase he said and purchase behavior from prime members thereby more products more often but obviously weighing on the bottom line. Aws I talked about that too with Mr softy listen it came in growth rate thirty five percent that was a sequential tick down nine billion that's a lighter than what the it was looking for guys at Baird I know we're looking around nine point one billion I did question about those some growth rates he says bottom line they're happy with the progress it's on a thirty six billion dollar run rate up nine billion year over year aws's says leads the industry and features in products not worried he seemed to indicate about these fluctuations quarter quarter Melissa back to you all right josh thank you we'll check back in with you with any other developments here let's try Amazon urine obviously going into this quarter expenses were the primary concern as always Amazon operating expenses grew faster than sales growth which I think people anticipated obviously not as much because the stock is down significantly in the after hours but if you look at it it's not it's not disaster that I think people want to portray yes I mean the growth rate in aws slowdown sodas or yesterday it's still pretty significant thirty six percent growth rate revenue guide absolutely disappointing but now you have to ask yourself everybody's dying to get in this thing a few months ago one of the levels tell you well I'll tell you exactly what to tell you. The recently was about thirteen sixty five give or take we made a recent high of twenty thirty five hundred a month and a half two months ago the level that we're at basically right now in the after ours is a fifty percent retracement of that entire move those double tops we've talked about forever have held up but now you're looking to play offense and Amazon instead the defense in my opinion if you're selling here you're trading wrong if you're dying to get into the stock a month ago would you have been dying to get into it knowing that the holiday quarter would have fallen short short of forecasts. Here's I'll take a different spin on what guy says but my glasses have full to Amazon historically the implied volume this thing we'd had it down mm percent I actually think this is a victory I actually think they've they've begun to smooth out their business aws while not growing where it is is clearly along with Microsoft these guys are head and shoulders google a distant third in my view are taking cloud of which we're less than ten percent of enterprise conversion onto the cloud I think it's very good news for them yeah I know that Prime Shipping Q. Four costs are going to be double what we're in the second quarter and if you look at fulfillment costs overall that's really hurting the margin so Amazon which meant a lot of money three four eight years ago into their logistics AARP warehousing and suddenly one day gave them the ability to turn it up a notch is doing the same thing that doesn't concern me as shameful and I have to tell you I do think this is an environment where you wanna be looking for opportunities to add Amazon because there's nothing about what they've told me today that signals is a structural problem with the company. Yeah I agree with that I mean obviously spend spend spend right they can afford to do it so you

White House 'will not co-operate with impeachment inquiry'

"Big news today is that the White House has taken its fight with Congress to the next level initially sending word that it will not participate in any aspect of the impeachment prob- yeah which is crazy like trump card just declined to participate like this is not the Vietnam War and this new tactic this new tactic through everything for a loop because you see today was meant to be the big day when Congress would testimony from Gordon Sunland Ambassador to the U. and Jeff stunt double but just before the C. Span cameras started rolling the White House pulled the doc we're following breaking news this morning it's moving quickly the White House blocking e you embassador Gordon Sunland from testifying to Congress just minutes before he was supposed to appear on Capitol Hill who sets five behind closed doors as part of an ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Trump specifically about his interactions with Ukraine Democratic House intelligence chairman calling the move to keep Sunlen from speaking to lawmakers quote strong evidence of obstruction wow donald trump's white house blocked an ambassador from testifying to Congress what a completely innocent thing to do trump was probably just scared that that ambassador would exonerate him too much now I gotta maintain my bad boy image run these streets so at the president's behest sunland pulled out of this impeachment hearing which is a big deal because although many people haven't heard of Gordon Sandon it appears that everything trump wants it from Ukraine went through him there's almost no one who was more involved in pushing the president's priorities in Ukraine then Gordon Sunland even before president trump spoke to the president of Ukraine in Sunland the US ambassador to the EU had been pushing the Ukrainians to commit to investigations Mr Trump wanted the ambassador to the EU. Gordon Zahn land worked behind the scenes to help carry out trump's wishes in Ukraine a country that isn't even in the EU okay that's your first red flag right there trump's ambassador to the E U was getting involved with the country that isn't in the EU that's not his jurisdiction that would be like Santa doing truth varies job that's not cool yeah because then it's just a creepy old man standing over your kids bed yeah it'd be like what are you doing we'll hold nothing word I'm just I'm just in your kids to eat okay now that I say loud sounds weird the tooth fairy as God data got killed me and the reason congress is so intense on having sonnen testify isn't just because he was at the center of Ukraine's scandal right it's also because he has text messages that show what was going on behind the scenes text messages given to Congress show Sunday at another diplomat discussing a possible link between investigations and aid to Ukraine on September nine bill alert the top US diplomat to Ukraine texts I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign sunland response I believe you were in correct about President trump's intentions the president has been crystal clear no quid pro quos of any kind adding I suggest we stopped the back and forth by text Taylor text Gordon Sunland are we now saying that security assistance and White House meeting are conditioned on investigations someone response call me I don't know if these guys are guilty or not but you have to admit those texts look suspicious because the only time when you say stop texting let's talk on the phone is when something shady is going down it's twenty one thousand nine hundred no one talks on the phone the only reason to talk on the phone at all is to wish mother happy birthday or to commit crimes or to commit crimes with your grandmother on her birthday just like all right and then you tell me who wins at Bingo and I'll take the rest at the same time I don't blame for wanting to shut down those texts because you see what's happening there the guy he's texting is being so explicit about everything is like I don't think it's a good idea to commit this crime it's like Yo yo Yo yo you know who he reminds me of reminds me of that one guy on every bachelor party group chat who has no chill runoffs is playing it cool and he's like I am excited to cocaine tomorrow guys see you at the cocaine and hookers delete delete delete now in response to the stonewalling the Democrats have issued a subpoena to embassador sunland but may take months or longer to wind its way through the courts in the mean time Congress is also hoping to hear testimony from the whistle blowers and remember there are now two whistleblowers aren't there's the first whistle blower who has secondhand information and secondhand and the second whistle blower who has firsthand information and then of course you've got the confessions from trump which I guess is small hand information I don't know how this works normally normally getting testimony from a whistle blower might not be such a big deal but this time they're talking about taking extra precautions to conceal this person's identity and it could be because the whistle blowers are shy maybe it's because the president has implied they should be executed I don't know either way Democrats are looking at some novel ways to ensure whistle lowest safety the House intelligence committee is taking extreme measures to protect the whistleblower from a president itching to learn his identity this country has to find out who that I was because that person's a spy in my opinion there are growing concerns about the whistle blowers safety it's still unclear when the whistle blower might talk to lawmakers but he is considering using an offsite location limiting staff and members who could be present possible steps include a remote location for testimony and perhaps masking the person's face or voice wow musk's and fake voices just to make sure that trump doesn't know who this person is seems a bit extreme I mean all they really need to do is disguise the whistle blow as trump's daughter tiffany and he'd be like who is this person I've never seen her before in my life I understand why Congress is being so careful here I mean this is serious

They were planning a visit ah very soon but following donald trump's tweet benjamin netanyahu made the announcement just shortly after now would it trump's tweets say <hes> he said quote it would show great weakness if israel allowed representative omar and representative to lead to visit they hate israel and all jewish the people and there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are disgrace so i just want to quickly focus on the first i line that tweet where he mentioned that this would show great weakness. This guy you're about to watch is trying to give advice on weakness hall up carrier are your president. I guess i have to do it myself. I know it's not so let's get back to the heart of the story of these two women <hes> our first of all they're free speech is being punished by the leader of this government right and so the the big issue that israel has and this. This is what they said in their statement was that <hes> the congresswoman are in support of the b._b._s. movement the boycott divestment <hes> searches. Yes sanctions <hes> sanctions movement against israel. Okay two things about trump. I <hes> so number one. <hes> you call somebody anti semitic. Are you kidding me. A you went to the republican and business leaders and told them no no room leisa renegotiate more than this from. What does that mean. What does it mean can. There's a report ever wanna ask him. What does that mean. What do you mean the jewish. Jewish business leaders like the renegotiate. I'm curious. What does that mean because you're an anti semite and you have these thoughts on the back of your head and i don't care who your daughter married. You still believe them. They're stuck tuck there from decades of being an anti semite and then he went and told them oh you like to buy off your politicians that you probably aren't going to vote for support me. This was in the primaries now in the last election cycle. You're probably not going to support me because you can't buy me off. What does that mean. What does that mean. I like somebody to get trump to answer that. It's because he's an anti semite he believes jews are all they like to renegotiate deals because they are cheaters <hes> it's all about money for them and their corrupt center in reality as always with donald trump brits projection as everything he does he bought a politicians.

Because even one single case of Ebola disease. So now we have new hotspot in rural at a mobile co whereas started before, and we need to break this, virtuous cycle to make sure that we're not got have cases. But of course you're talking about my black amandime a- and other places. Even small villages now haven't seen ever before. What's your access like given the security is still a big problem? You've said it before attacks on health workers, March, April, may continuing now secured cessation, is very volatile because you have, you know, dozens of arms group saw every day, we have to assess the situation before moving to the ground so you can have days where you don't have access to some vunerable population.

Transmission in Uganda, but remember to identify the contracts and contests of contact to monitor them unvaccinated them, but I was saying during market day, you have over twenty thousand people, causing only one point of entry.

They pay a leasing fee, you can even sell the car. It's also part of like a specific organization or union. So you have to take out this loan that is usually high interest, or is completely unrealistic for what you actually need. And of course, the whole thing is that you then use what the loan paid for to payback the loan. Which in itself, doesn't make any sense. It's like a give and take system. It's like they're taking the paycheck out or ready. What's even worse is Amazon is seeking to basically cut all prophets of human labor because that is what humans are under capitalism prophets. We are loss or gain probably the same as the machinery, there's an upkeep costs. That's what I'm saying. And so Amazon was like, well, we're basically going to recover our costs in under two years.

New Amazon Software Analyzes Patient Medical Records

"Technology companies have been expanding into the healthcare industry and one of the ways they're doing. This is by selling software that analyzes medical information. The Wall Street Journal says Amazon is starting to sell software that minds patient medical records for information, the doctors and hospitals could use to improve treatment and cut costs. It's the latest move by big tech to tap, the healthcare market and hair to tell us about it is Wall Street Journal health reporter, Melanie Evans, Melanie, specifically, how would this data mining software work? This is an interesting type of software in that. It pulls information out of text like an article or in this case, the doctor's notes that go into the medical record. This is a thorny issue because there's no structure to how a doctor writes, the note, they can use abbreviations they misspell something and could this software sort of? Divine whatever the doctors are writing is that good is that intuitive. So that is the goal. This software can go in and through lots and lots of training using sort of type of artificial intelligence known as deep learning. This software has gotten better and better at as you said divining bits of information and pulling it out so that it can be kind of used now. Amazon has said that doctors and hospitals that use this will not only get the information back that they're looking for. But they'll also get something like what they've described as a confidence score, which is a score that goes along side that says, you know, here's how confidence the algorithm is that that the information that it's providing is accurate. So there is some guidance there to kind of like discern just how reliably this offer has found what it's looking for. And it's being offered as mentioned doctors and hospitals through Amazon. Zahn web services. Is there a specific way for the users to upload this information? So what the users do actually is upload their information to Amazon's cloud, and that's where they can access this algorithm. So this is a cloud based service is Amazon the I do this. There are other companies that are developing the same technology. This is a really big problem. Pulling information out of these typewritten notes really big problem in health care because there's growing amounts of data that hospitals wanna be able to use. They can use it to try to figure out like who needs. What kind of care what type of medicine might be working best for which type of patient? And so there are other big tech companies in this space, one of them being IBM another being United health group, which has a sort of a division called Optum that is working on this as well now Amazon has sold similar software to companies outside the health industry. This is the first time that it's selling this particular type of saw. Were two doctors. Correct. This is the entry of Amazon web services into sort of a healthcare specific space, and the reason that they had to develop something specifically for healthcare is because you know, the medical language is so specific and the stakes are really high for getting it, right? And this seems like it's a good time to do it. You know, the healthcare market seems to be a natural target for tech companies health records have been on hard copy for so long. But I guess in recent years they've started making them electron ick yet there has been a really rapid shift in hospitals to move from paper records to computerized digital records. You've probably seen it in your doctor's office, the doctor the nurse. It's typing away in a computer part of that was facilitated by congress, which as part of the, you know, after the last recession, they passed this big stimulus Bill, and they include some incentives in there for the adoption of these records, and it just took off. Was there any testing done for this software? How did it perform? So. Yes, the. Way that this software was developed was actually through kind of like repeated testing they worked with public data sets. They worked with for example. Fred hutchinson. Cancer center out in Seattle with their data, and they kind of ran it again. And again, this is how machine learning works. So what they've said is that it performs at or above sort of previously published results. Now, this is an Amazon's first foray by any means into the healthcare center. I think they've bought an online pharmacy and they've done a couple of other things as well. Yeah. Amazon is coming at healthcare from a couple of different directions. They purchased for about a billion dollars. They purchased pill pack, which is this pharmacy business, which is a kind of a pretty significant move into a four billion dollar sector. It is a kind of a competitor to the brick and mortar retailers you see CVS WalMart. They've also partnered with Berkshire Hathaway and J P Morgan to kind of come up with a healthcare. Care solution for their employees, which is in development,

"The interface makes it more protocal and eliminates friction and increases adoption. So that's the way we see it is that it allows people who are totally non technical feel like this is as natural as interfacing with a human or pet or a computer today. I feel like the idea of adding emotions to decrease friction. I feel like a lot of people can take exception to write like a lot of emotional interactions are actually quite confusing. Like, do you worry that you need to constrain sort of the boundaries of how emotions are communicated or what emotions are possible in order to actually reduce friction instead of increasing friction for sure. And in part of what we've done is like we try to simplify to kind of. The normal extremes that you would think about an modulated for the circumstance? Right. So a lot of it comes down to, you know, the social cues when you see somebody recognize right something that's simple. You imagine not having that, like how much that would kind of throw you off in your day. If like there was no like visual or kind of physical response to somebody that sees you, you know, when you think about the way you move, if a robot is meant for entertainment, it moves in a certain way and it has a certain personality. If it's meant for like, let's say, security and monitoring, but it's still has to coexist among people for an extended period of time, you're going to have a much more serious personality where you would think of it almost like a dog in the home that can be imposing, but he's super friendly to everybody that's around him. And so I think for us, we acknowledge that humans can have very confusing emotions, and a lot of those become distracting. We have the ability to structure this and create the kind of probabilistic mapping Zahn what you do in wine and why to where these characters feel alive. But they don't feel comp-. Fusing or distracting where truly becomes additive and then you can really appreciate the what they were meant to be. I wanna I wanna stay in philosophy for a few more minutes with you, and then I'll actually.
