Fresh update on "epa" discussed on Tesla Daily: Tesla News & Analysis
"Am local time finish at seven pm but it looks like they are our longtime slots within that range. Right next up here will go through this quickly. But we've got a new study published by jd. Power there twenty twenty one at us automotive performance execution and layout study or appeal study sort of a proxy for how much customers are like in their car and for the second year in a row. Tesla has scored at the top of this albeit with a qualifier as usual of j. power not being able to collect data in all states because tesla doesn't provide it to them so i- thousand points scale tesla got on eight hundred ninety three score eight hundred ninety six last year but still higher than any other brand porsche. Coming in at eighty two coming in as the runner up in the premium segment and then for the mass market segment. Dodge leading the pack there at also eight eighty two so nice to see that not a big surprise. Desa customers still liking their cars. I next we've just got a bit of news on other electric vehicles. So i mentioned yesterday that there was the leaked information or broken embargo. I guess about the lucid getting five hundred twenty mile. Epa range rating on the lucid air dream edition. I always today has now posted a press release confirming that as well as the ranges for a few other. Trims remember they split the dream edition into addition range dream addition performance than they've also got the less powerful grand during so with a nineteen inch wheels the ranges year span from four hundred seventy one miles up to five hundred twenty miles and with twenty one inch wheels from four hundred fifty one miles up to four hundred eighty one so it really good ranges than if we look at fueleconomy.gov we can see the actual listings here for the miles per gallon efficiency that can be converted over into watt hours per mile and that gives us a guess at what the battery pack sizes might be here so in a press release last year lucid had claimed to get their epa range of five hundred seventeen miles with a one hundred thirteen kilowatt hour battery pack which obviously would be very impressive. The model s. uses about one hundred kilowatt hour peck. Anyway if we look at the fuel economy page we can see that. The lucid air dream addition range version is getting a hundred and twenty five miles per gallon equivalent or it says there twenty-seven kilowatt hours per one hundred miles just for a little bit more. Specificity will use the hundred twenty five miles per gallon equivalent. We can convert that over two miles per kilowatt hour that ends up being about three point seven miles per kilowatt hour which four or five hundred twenty mile vehicle would mean about one hundred forty kilowatt-hours however the epa states this based on energy drawn from the wall and there are some loss in getting that all the way into the battery so we look at the model s..
Star Gymnasts Open about Their Experience with Nasar
"Simone biles broke down yesterday while testifying about larry nassar in front of a group of senators. On capitol hill saying the us gymnastics and other agencies failed her and other abuse victims. Byles along with fellow former usa gymnastics michaela maroney maggie nicols and alley. Reisman told their stories in front of the senate judiciary committee yesterday. Only some of this audio It's it's very powerful. Yeah over the course of my gymnastics career. I have one twenty five world championship medals in seven olympic medals for team. Usa that record means so much to me. and i am proud of my representation of this nation gymnastics. I am also a survivor of sexual abuse. And i believe without a doubt that the circumstances that led to my abuse and allowed it to continue our directly the result of the fact that the organizations created by congress to oversee and protect me as an athlete. Usa gymnastics in the united states olympic and paralympic committee committee failed to do their jobs. She goes on to talk about sort of elude as to why she had The breakdown during the tokyo olympics and the michaela maroney said the fbi is at fault for much of this as most of you are probably aware i was molested by the us gymnastics national team in olympic team. Dr larry nassar in an actuality turned out to be more of a pedophile than he was a doctor. What i'm trying to bring attention today. It's something incredibly disturbing an illegal after telling my entire story of abuse to the fbi in the summer of two thousand fifteen not only did the fbi not report my abuse but when they eventually documented my report seventeen months later they made entirely false claims. About what i said. Yeah it's bad and it goes on from there The dr larry. Nassar was convicted of sexually abusing hundreds of women and girls at effectively receive life in prison after getting sense to one hundred and seventy five years behind bars. The hearing was held to discuss the epa failures with respect to their investigation into the team. Usa doctor
Fresh update on "epa" discussed on Tesla Daily: Tesla News & Analysis
"Our here and today we're talking a little bit about tesla situation. In china. we have received some more august numbers over the last couple of days and it has created a little bit of confusion. So we'll talk about what's going on there. We've also got an update on tesla's giga berlian. Factory tour event for october some news a little bit of uc around the cyber truck coming from a desolate glass video. Then we've got a few of the things including revisiting those lucid epa numbers. Those have actually now been published in a mike. Give us some insight into where lucid. It ended up in terms of their efficiency and their battery pack size. That's stock on the day to day kind of continuing the trend that we've seen so far this week where i feel like it has slowly risen throughout the day and made its way into the green finishing up today point one five percent to seven hundred fifty six dollars ninety nine cents that compared the nasdaq also read around that level. All right so first up. Let's figure out what's going on here. In china a few days ago we had talked about tussles wholesale sales numbers which remember. That's the term china uses for the sum of domestic retail sales combined with export numbers that was reported to be an all time high forty four thousand two hundred and sixty four vehicles since then we did get the retail sales in the breakdown between model three and mentawai. Same with experts. Think we talked about those as well. Maybe just not the split between model three the model. why but what. We're going to focus in on today. Is that retail sales numbers so that was twelve thousand eight hundred eighty five vehicles most of that being why about eleven thousand six hundred there of the monowai now people care about the retail sales number because that is domestic that china so it gives us an indicator of what demand is there in china and there have been. I believe justifiable concerns about that earlier this year. So i don't generally care too much about things that are primarily demand focused in this case. It is understandable. Anyway we saw this twelve thousand eight hundred eighty five sales reported and then we did get a report from declerk yesterday that there were only twenty eight hundred new tesla's insured in august in china so it is normal for those ensured units to be a little bit different than what gets reported as retail sales but in general they are much closer so this brings up the question of okay. What exactly is retail sales. What's being reported there. We don't have a great answer of that. And because sometimes sales are reported that are from the factory to a dealership in general in the automotive business. That then begs the question of okay. Is the difference here between the retail sales number and the insured vehicle number indicating that there is a lot of inventory that tesla's may be shipped to stores that isn't actually getting sold and shirt so obviously if that were the case that could potentially be representative of poor demand in china and then separately as a potential other reason for why..

Fresh update on "epa" discussed on Sean Carroll's Mindscape: Science, Society, Philosophy, Culture, Arts, and Ideas
"Theorem says is a cosmic. No hair theorem. It says that it doesn't matter what you started with eventually to empty space with nothing but a cosmological constant for years is made me think of the second law thermodynamics or of the process of equivocation. Right the ice cube melts. It doesn't matter with these started with a glass of cool water or one ice cube or two ice cubes or whatever. Eventually you get to a glass of cool water right. They all go to the same place just like the universe goes to the same place. So there's an equivalent. No hair connection. And i thought we should try to make that rigorous so aden figured out a way to do it and he and i wrote a paper showing that if you have a a system in curved space time with a maximum possible entropy that system goes to empty space expanding exponentially. It has caused multiple constant and we didn't even use einstein's equation or anything like that so you can think of this evolution of the universe in the direction of emptiness as increasing entropy. So that's a proof that the highest state you can be in is completely empty space. I think i've answered anyone. Everyone's questions reiner guga. Said is entropy. just an epa phenomenon and therefore maybe not applying to the early universe. You have to be careful what you mean. By degrees of freedom. The early universe may have been dominated by inflation by an inflight on field with no particles in it but again just like for the expanding universe that is one particular physical configuration. That could have been in a lot of other physical configurations including a whole bunch of gas and dust or a bunch of black holes or empty space. All of these are other possible physical configurations of that early universe. It is not easy to to write down a once and for all formula for what the entropy is in such situation but we know it's very very low and we have pretty good formulas in certain special cases like black holes like space and things like that so it is absolutely okay to apply entropy as a concept to the early universe..
A Space for Mom's to Be More Than 'Just Moms' With Mom Halo Founder, Alana Kayfetz
"Halo which was previously known as moms. Te'o mom's toronto was to me like an act of desperation. When i was looking for my girls crew is looking for moms to like connect with and everywhere i went like people didn't talk to each other. It was really weird dynamic. I come from a twelve year history of a community builder. Fundraiser working nonprofit sector. Have always sort of been a gatherer of people and organizer of stuff so i was looking for my crew and i couldn't really find them so i had just moved into the neighborhood. We live now. I'm a young mom. I have my babies. Maybe five months old and i just like flew out on a local facebook page. I'm okay. I'm looking for some moms. Who wanna come over to my house to just maybe hang out at byu. Ob bring your babies. Your boobs in your bottles and bottles met lake. I was obviously like your your baby bottle. Your wine bottle. Hello whatever that was in two thousand. Sixteen that i thought was really clever. And lo and behold like nineteen random. Women's showed up to my like my matchbook cows. They're like i remember. This french canadian woman was like what's the catch. What are you trying to sell me on. Like absolutely nothing. My husband is a retired shops. Like beautiful feud we had like twelve bottles of wine. And we just. I had this aha moment of like moms. Just want to have their identity. Were their moms and also have a baby on everything. Baby baby baby all the time so. I really leaned in hard to this leg putting mom i like baby on the head wide on the lab. That's how it came. In to be. Rene then i remember that year. That was a really cool event in toronto that i really want to go to. It was like a very busy like food and beverage event. And i want to wear my white dress and i wanted to shut my baby with me and i went to go buy tickets. It was like a three hundred dollars ticket and the like. I'm sorry you can't come into nineteen event. I was like my baby is in a stroller. Like you can't bring the baby after this shit. I'm gonna create an event that looks and feels as beautiful as boozy. That's food and beverage where women can bring their baby. And that's how the first ever very mommy wine festival came to be with this like really leaning hard into finding a place where moms could come be themselves have a glass of wine and hang out with their babies fast forward years later and that's secretion of our community now which is now known as the mom halo. We pivoted hard because we realized we were serving women with our virtual digital content that we're like very much outside of the greater toronto area so very canadian following and we still sort of hit hard with i would say epa content. That's both virtual. We are in person really fun and it's not about why right. It's on about getting drunk and being fraternity girls. It's about permission right. It's about giving moms permission to say it's okay for you to be both. You can love being mom behaving mom. You can exercise five days a week. If that's your thing not my thing but if that's your thing and you wanna drink on the weekends that's your thing like just do you like whatever you is just

Here's counties to republican. Commissioners are frequently overruled by the majority democratic commissioners on the court when they vote on everything from taxes to county contracts but one option in their back pocket is simply not showing up for major votes. Commissioner jack kay goal is proposing tax cut for harris county homeowners of about a penny less than what democrats in. The court are supporting. Caygill says. that option doesn't keep the tax payer front of mind and he may be willing to block it by breaking quorum. I air coming into a vote. And i feel like the tax payers will not be protected than i would i would exercise. What rules and laws are in place that would allow us to protect the tax hairs versus the tax spenders. A third option would be no new revenue rate the lowest rate of the mall for taxpayers. And that's the county may be forced to fall to if both republican commissioners don't show up on september twenty eighth when the vote is scheduled. I'm sarah will ernst in.

In Epic vs. Apple Court Fight, a Win for App Developers
"Apple can no longer force developers to using that purchasing judge ruling epa. I saw this. I was literally just reading about this breaking news. I love the breaking news. On my i surprise. I don't know what it's uh could have gone either way in this case But i guess would it. Would it means is that the judge has determined. That apple has not sufficiently proven their case that the thirty percent take is justified And then you have all these massive implications because because of this ruling. I presume you would have a peon appeal. What does it say here. In injunction that apple will no longer be allowed to prohibit developers from providing links or other communications that direct us away from apple in that purchase. Like this is exactly what apple. What epic wanted one. It's a big victory. Lebron exactly what epic was going for a case that they were making the judge agreed with that and not apple.

So we're on number three now and you're saying you can achieve a three percent conversion rate over the entire emails or point zero three the average with the really basic emails Point three percent fury molest over the course of the whole thing. If you do this more advanced one then you can get up about one percent confession right if you hold list. If you've got one hundred thousand plus list then you're going to get one thousand people buying but also more work. I love doing that kind of work personally. Like i grab a kitchen napkin and like how much is a writer costs. How much time to take the right these emails and just figure out if it's going to work for you. The crucial thing here and this is where it starts to get You don't have to write these for epa. So let's say you're selling courses my world right so you have twelve courses you do this all twelve and then you just cycle back through to the beginning so six months later you're sending the exact same email. She sent the first time. You could improve them slightly. If you want to. We can just send the same once again. People who were on your email list now wouldn't necessarily on six months ago. The ones who were on six months ago. A lot of them didn't read those emails. They didn't even open them. The ones who did open them. They didn't necessarily read them if they did read them. They weren't paying that much attention a lot with them. If they were paying attention they didn't necessarily click through to the sales page. And go into that if they click through and they didn't buy you know what's right for them to hear this again. Yeah and the other thing is like you have twelve months of data or whatever that any marketer with their salt could use the best practices to like. Just tweak the new ones going forward yeah. We did that recently. We just changed a couple of the emails in the sequence for time apart from that the whole thing went out the same next month and it made way more money than the first one did because those two emails with done better tricks with email stuff besides you just laid out a big framework. But they're small things that are working nicely in email nowadays in the world so the going going gone sequences the last part. It's absolutely crucial. And it's so easy it's like when most of the money actually comes in then it's basically saying this offer is finishing in.

Now there's a lot of military they're they're continuing to build a border fence And media and ngos are no longer allowed to be in that. Three radius of epa parts of the border. Do we know as a result of the fact that we have a media blackout on this but do not see what's happening. It's difficult to tell for that exact reason because there's no longer media on border her.

And they were giving daily reports about the situation and now that stopped so it's much more difficult to tell what's going
How Did Charlie's Parents Instill Conservative Values?
"Was wondering if you and share with your listeners with your parents did to prepare you so brilliantly for your current mission or you're very kind. Thank you for saying that and wonderful battle lake minnesota. My parents are phenomenal. And they were never propagandist and they were never pushing a specific political agenda but they were a couple of things that were always reinforced with how we talked about politics and matters of the eternal which is always questioning but saying that we are thankful to be american one of the first things. My parents taught me was geography understanding our physical place in the world. That's a very important thing. Once you can understand the size and scope of america in relation to the rest of the world. how big are we. How smaller we. How much land do we actually have. What are the other parts of the world. What do they look like. What are the most important rivers. What the capitals across the world. Those things are very important for people to know number two. My parents would always tell me that. America is the greatest nation ever to exist in the history of the world nation that has embraced self-government but understands natural rights that has the independent judiciary and then appreciate the history behind it. But any time. That i would kind of spout out anything that would be conservative. My parents and say well. Why do you believe that. Let's let's talk about that. And then finally i grew up in. I grew up in a culture that embraced and loved entrepreneurship. Starting something from nothing. That knew that risk taking should be rewarded and the creation of new things is what keeps us society vibrant if keeps society ambitious in a good way and keep society full of life with vitality. This is something that we have lost. I think in some some cities across the country in recent years. And so but the thing that i tell parents all the time. And that's why.

Why Does Our Desire for Our Partner Wane? With Esther Perel
"Anyone who's been in a long term relationship is gone through a phase where the desire for your partner fades no matter how intense and exciting the honeymoon phase. Was you get used to each other. And the novelty wears off. So why does the desire for our partners wayne in long term relationships notes. Big question for most of history In long term relationships which was primarily marriage was for procreation to that you could have eight children for which you probably needed to have more because a few were not going to survive and sex was primarily a woman's berry to duty. So you did it. 'cause you had to and you had motivation to which was to procreate. We went from the row creative model to the recreativo bottom. We went from duty to desire. We went from sexuality to be a kind of economic asset because children's were economic assets to sexuality to being for pleasure and connection. We take it for granted but it is a massive transformation and then come to sixties and we have a number of mini revolutions it primarily we have the democratization of contraception which means that the generation at that for the first time has premarital sex has the permission to do what they want has contraception in their hand has a security that has been redefined under a completely new organizing principle and they don't feel like it at home and they don't know why can we want what we already have is the fundamental question of desire. What is the difference between love and desire how do they relate. But also how do they conflict. Why is it that the forbidden is so erotic. Why the spirit who deliver such a fatal erotic blow what is at stake with the very thing that people rely on is the very thing that becomes more most fragile because we don't think of desire something that needs to be cultivated sustained actively nourished within that because in the beginning for some of us. Anyway it's it's just going to remain there for epa
Clark Stanley: The Rattlesnake King
"Oil is an actual product that is created from chinese water snakes also known as irabu snakes. It's been used as a traditional chinese remedy for centuries chinese water. Snakes live in ponds and rice paddies. They're slightly venomous snakes under a meter that feed on fish and infineon's the snake oil which is derived from the water. Snakes is very high in the omega. Three fatty acid known as epa snake oil was and is considered by many people to be effective in relieving the pain of ailments such as arthritis bursitis and sore muscles.

The idea of putting rattlesnake oil in the product altogether for twenty four years stanley traveled around the country. Touting the medicinal benefits of his snake oil intimate he created a massive show that he toured with positioning himself Frontiers mun while creating an elaborate backstory. He sold the product at western shows around the country. He claimed that the recipe for his snake oil lyneham. It came from a hoppy medicine. Man the hoppy did not have anything resembling snake oil and at no point. Did he ever mention the chinese origins of the product. Moreover stanley made claims about the product which went far beyond with your original chinese snake. Oil was used for stanley claim that it would cure. Rheumatism sciatica lumbago a sore throat.

The Benefits of Clearing Your Energy and Feelings with Caroline Perez
"Every time you have an emotion or traumatic than our life challenge. Economy creates a stress. Not in deals. Can you imagine like a bunch of stress knots and think of them as almost like a kink in a garden hose. So we're not like you know taking anything or moving all we're doing is on kingking allowing stop flow and we create these things sometimes with our thoughts and feelings so we have three choices when we have a feeling we can get swept away by a we can suppress it. We can let it go and usually what creates the knots. more is when we suppress it. Are we get sucked away by it right. So it's important to start to look feelings. Ask just information. I love to think of it in this way. So like you know if you walk into a room. That's just been painted and you can smell those teams are like ooh. I don't like that doesn't smell good. It's just information it's telling me know someone just painted here okay. It's okay. I'm not gonna freak out similar with a feeling like if we suddenly feel some anger if we just look at information Okay it's interesting really angry right now Because in our bodies really only feel it feeling for ninety seconds it only goes longer because of the stories the things we start an magin just letting it go at acknowledging it or even get curious and just like yeah. This is anger. it's not gonna be forever we'll pass right and just not getting swept away so another way to think about it is if feelings of balloon in it's coming up so it's like oh my god. I'm feeling the anger out. Right a key technology and be like okay. Get curious but not to grab the string in get sucked away away for days other things. Suppressing it in so like holding it down and you can imagine energy to suppress all these balloons. If you have all these balloons like it's you know it's exhausted. Physically feel that but then man just leading a up in letting it rise and let it go. You know it can take practice. We're not all perfect neglect epa thinking. You've a of our feelings. As just information into getting curious without nearly judgment can really help keep us balanced to
Shortest Ever Gamma Ray Burst Discovered
"Astronomers have discovered the shortest epa gamma-ray burst the huge blast identified as gib. Two thousand eight twenty six was coolest by the supernova implosion of a massive star in a distant galaxy. The blast was so powerful. It admitted fourteen million times the energy released by the time. Qa galaxy in the space of just zero point six five seconds most gamma-ray bursts usually more than twice as long producing what are usually described as the brightest most energetic events since the big bang astronomers divide gamma-ray burst into two broad categories based on their duration short period gamma-ray bursts blazing the life in less than two seconds and i thought to be caused by the merging of neutron stars in a binary system neutron stars of the dentist objects in the universe other than black holes. They formed that at the core collapse of massive stars at the end of their lives. Compressing still a comb more. The one point four times the mass of the sun into an object just a dozen or so kilometers wide. The material of neutron stars is as dense as the nucleus of an atom and a single teaspoon of neutron star material would w- as much as mount everest as well as their incredible density. Neutron stars are also intensely hot and possess magnetic fields millions to billions of times stronger than that of the earth long-duration gamma-ray bursts. there's lasting more than two seconds. I thought the because by the implosion of some of the universe's most massive stars at the end of their lives stars. Run out of the hydrogen. That's a stains nuclear reactions in there. 'cause the thing that makes a stash shine without the stabilizing pressure of these reactions starts can't fight gravity they collapse into exotic stellar remnant. The massive start determines its fate star smaller than the one point four times. The mass of the sun will shrink into white dwarves well largest is collapsing the neutron stars and the largest of all collapsed entirely forming black holes an object with such intense gravity.

Revisit Andrew Cuomo Mismanging COVID Outbreak in New York
"Again. This is March 26 2020 Go. Elaine, New Rochelle, New York The Great W. ABC go Now That's the EPA of epicenters. Go ahead. Yes. Hello. Thank you very much for taking my call. Um, I wanted to bring to your attention in the listener's attention What It's about to happen in New York with respect to nursing homes. And the governor has ordered that all nursing homes must accept, uh, covid positive patients that are actually potentially still infectious. Into into their facilities, and this will put our residents are long term care population. Yeah, is this Are you pulling my leg seriously? No. Why would you send Somebody who has this virus into a population that can kill people. Thank you. No, No. Are you serious? I am here. Well, why would he order this? It doesn't make any sense Memo. Well, because because the hospitals well, first of all in you know, I will point out that nursing homes are in the habit of accepting patients from hospitals to continue their care after their They may be in the habit, But they must realize now that the most vulnerable people among us our senior citizens And nursing homes. These are people that have issues and so I'm trying to understand. The point of this. What is the point of this? I'm looking at a directive from Andrew Cuomo and Howard Zucker dated March 25th that is ordering Nursing homes. It says nursing homes must comply with the expedited receipt of residents from hospitals. They are deemed appropriate to go into the nursing homes by the hospitals, and we cannot discriminate based on The presence of

It has no category for women's health issues and hundreds of women are reporting Menstrual dysregulation of a severe kind. And i don't mean to like you talk about anything.

I have not heard that. Are you kidding. oh. I wish. I was kidding. Overdose menopausal women menstruating. But isn't this the point. Ao me the fact that we're not hearing about this or not supposed to talk about this. I thought honestly people have to get angry. It's offensive in the united states of america. When people tell you what you can and cannot talk about. It is deeply offensive and epa. Push back. they deserve to be pushed around. Folks you've got to behave like your free because you actually are frequently. So you're telling me something. I'd not heard before well i wanted to reinforce that. Even more the importance of women speaking out about these things when i started reporting on the hundreds of accounts of severe menstrual dysregulation in super weird bleeding Matt gaetz got tasked with going onto twitter.

Flight Attendants Speak out About Unruly Passengers
"Passengers to long delays. Getting passports. ABC s Alex Stone looks the trouble. With the travel industry. Yeah, you know, Flight crusades is totally out of control right now, Kitty that in the last week there have been 150 new reports to the FAA of unruly passengers most ever in a one week period. Most of them involve people refusing to wear a mask on board and This woman on a Delta flight, saying she wouldn't wear one as police came on Brazil. I think my semen right not respecting her human rights, she said. And this woman on a Southwest flight they landed in San Diego a couple weeks back, knocking out of flight attendants tooth gonna brawl on board there. So most of the battles have been over masks and the EPA, saying it's gotten over 3400 unruly passenger reports this year. 2600 of those have been passengers refusing to wear masks and flight attendants today are saying they've had enough. This is a federal mandate, whether you agree with it or not, and whether they agree with it or not. It's got to be in force, and they say, give them a break. This is way higher than any number of incidents that we've ever seen that Sarah Nelson, head of the flight attendants union, they're going to the FAA today and saying help us out here. What else can you do? Because it's not getting any better. Flight attendants are experiencing a job that they just are not familiar with. It all every day. When they go to work, there's conflict, and there are is disrespect towards them and an incredibly difficult job. The NSA is restarting self defense courses for flight attendants to teach them how to to fight back. It can mean big fines. People are being fined 52,000 bucks up to it. For fighting back against flight attendants. You can get 20 years in prison.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich Previews Pending Lawsuits Against Biden Administration
"You know what you have done. And what you're doing is crucially important, because I think challenges By Republican attorneys general What Joe Biden is doing across the border wherever there can be some kind of standing and you know, given Massachusetts versus EPA, you guys have a lot of standing and Attacks on what he is doing from a state perspective. Is one of the most important ways to at least try to slow down or stop what they're doing to this country. Don't you agree? Absolutely. And, you know, mark. We have actually three lawsuits related to immigration right now, and we actually just did get an adverse ruling. You know, we sued the Biden administration saying that you know his failure to file follow title eight and deport the 1.2 million people with deportation orders who in the statute, federal statute requires it. The federal judge said that we did have standing and she said that there is a harm to Arizona from the bite administration failure to follow the law. But she said she couldn't grab the remedy because of the discretion. So we're obviously appealing that case. And I wouldn't be surprised if that doesn't go to the U. S. Supreme Court based on be some recent case law, and so we're we're trying to preserve our borders and protect the integrity of our country. We've also were involved in a lawsuit. So my colleagues and I are challenging the Biden administration's new carbon tax rules, which is once again all about empowering, you know, the far left and you know, green energy folks, so Washington can give favors to all their favorite left to cause us. We have a lawsuit about that. We actually have a lawsuit. We just argued Why sued Yellen and Divide administration over the Covid relief bill. That will restrict or prohibit states from cutting state taxes if they get any Copan money, and I've asked this question rhetorically to people. Why is it that the Biden administration wants to send $14 million checks out to people, But the state of Arizona can't cut state taxes by $1400.
Powering the Age of Connected Insurance with Shannon Goggin, CEO at Noyo
"Shannon really really fascinating talk to us about how exactly you guys are are adding value to the ecosystem to know you'll is the api layer for insurance distribution. What that means is we build all the infrastructure all the that make it possible under the hood for soft eric companies to connect with insurance companies and specifically software companies that are helping people understand their benefits coverage. Maybe they're helping them. Shop for benefits get different quotes about what plan options are available to them and then get enrolled in those plants and importantly make sure that they know the status of their fridge and the reason that this is important for healthcare is health insurance is really the gateway for people to use healthcare in this country. There are very expensive. If you don't have health insurance to go to the doctor get the care that you need and everybody needs really great insurance coverage but many people don't have it not everybody has access to it in this country and so the work we do is really. Let's focus on making it possible for people to take any fetching out of that process as possible to get access to health insurance that they need which ultimately. Let's get the health care that they need. Yeah interesting so there's basically that point in time where people are deciding what insurance to get how specifically to use their insurance coverage they have. It's really that whole process right so you guys are are helping aggregate data for other software companies helping people to do what they do. That's right. We really facilitate the secure data exchange between health insurance companies and any software that their customers might want to use. So you know if you think about this. In a financial services comparison and the in a sort of banking world people can use then mo right to send money to their friends after the go to meal together and then mo had next to all the different banks and all the different financial institutions to make it possible for people to have that access But there's another company between ben mo and most of those banks which facilitates the actual connections the actual sort of infrastructure under the hood that takes of the security of saying who can have access to what account and make sure that it's properly encrypted and protected and epa data is structured appropriately. We play a similar role in the health insurance
Republican Attorney Generals Should Care About What's Happening in Georgia
"Now there's several ways to look at this. First of all new folks can do this yourself. You can look at Massachusetts versus the Environmental Protection Agency. It was a bogus decision of 54 decision. John Paul Stevens wrote the majority decision. It was an outrageous decision. But it gave standing to the state of Massachusetts to sue the EPA. Because Massachusetts basically argued, Look, Pollution doesn't know state lines across the state lines. So what happens in New Hampshire or somewhere else affects us in Massachusetts? So of course we have standing to sue the EPA. And so they said, You know what you do? Which was a Monumentally buffoonish decision, but nonetheless, it's not been overturned. It was done in order to advance the radical agenda. The D growth. And that is something that the Republican legislatures and state attorneys general can now rely on. In joining Georgia, and here's my point. Georgia has made reforms to its voting system actually liberalized that prior to the virus system that was in place. And that what happens in Georgia does affect other states. First of all, they're overlapping provisions. A lot of states that have passed laws or passing laws are doing something similar to what Georgia has like a voting. ID requirement or something of that sort.
Finding the Fish Players
"Imagine you're playing six handed right and you know the rags all have an edge against you right say a one big blind per hundred edge or something like that right so basically four other eggs or at the table. Then there's you and so you're losing four minus four babies per hundred playing against these guys and then a fish sits down in the fishes losing twenty bbc per hundred right now if everybody gets an equal share all five of you didn that takes you from losing for big blinds to breaking even right so that one fish means that you're not breaking even fishes losing twenty are now winning like five. Bb's per hundred assuming that everybody gets an equal share of the fishes loss rate. Right so everything. That i make is to make sure you get more than your fair. Share the fishes law rate which dramatically impacts your bottom line. Because that's where most of your winning comes from most of your winnings not gonna come from battling the other rags And quite frankly the more that dive into it. It's actually turned into this little thing where i just went to solve how to optimally. Beat the fish. So that i can then focus on the rags in the pool and construct strong strategies against them and then basically at that point then the game of poker is just fun times all around when you have a strategy in place that you just know you can execute and you know what it is and it's automatic and then you get to focus and free a bandwith to battling the rigs in your pool which i mean. I love the money that i make from the fish but it is fun. Battling greg's and getting into intricate spots and like the challenge aspect of that. I do enjoy that. I mean i'm not gonna. I'm the type of poker player that will fire up the one k. L. at two. Pm eastern standard time and just battle with two or three rags until you know waiting for somebody to sit l. Sit at the table I don't really mind. I accept that challenge against fun but ultimately like for being honest with ourselves. The money comes from within the weaker players. Sit down at the table. That's where the win rate is derived from. And so it's the only intelligent way i imagine tackling is to focus on the people that you win the most money from first and then focus on the stronger players secondly one hundred percent. Yeah one of my big goals is when. I sit down at a table. The first thing as i tried to find who the fish are and i try to figure out ways that i can isolate them to myself whether they're in the blinds so i'm going to raise three three and a half big minds. Whatever gets the ranks told the the fishy player out of the blinds. Just a call. They limp in iso raise they raise. I three bet. I do what i can to get those fish. Heads up. Because that's how you have the strategy against the weakest players but you're only going to get to use your strategy if you get into the hands with them you know so for me. That's always my first epa table. Find the fish figure out how to isolate them. And then of course employees those flop strategies that you're talking about and occasionally you can't help those rags fight back or you're dealt the right hand at the right time and you're you know you go up against the reds but that is those aren't situations to shy away from not that i mean. Obviously you tackle those situations right. You don't shy away from them. But that's where growth comes from tackling those strongest players the other strong players at the

"epa" Discussed on The Topical
"The EPA took a stand today in the ongoing debate around carbon but emissions and their effect on global warming. The scientific community has long been consensus that our carbon footprint does have a negative effect on climate change but some like EPA ahead Andrew Wheeler claimed carbon emissions are not as dangerous as we think and today he attempted to prove that assertion by inhaling directly from the tailpipe of a truck carbon emissions simply really are not as dangerous as you all think they are. Fired up Rodney and approve it once and for all I personally will be sucking in some of this american-made exhaust joining us now in the studio as our senior environmental correspondent Rebecca Neal Higher Rebecca Beca. Hello so the. EPA seems pretty adamant on their stance. Here no question wheeler was steadfast today as he conducted the demonstration and put his mouth over the exhaust pipe of an idling titling jeep grand Cherokee and he insisted the carbon siphoning down his throat was doing him no harm. I breathe in from a trip to take Copa many many jobs in my life and we'll get me down smooth. What are America doesn't love the taste of well? He certainly seems to be enjoying it. But what about recent studies that say otherwise wise that carbon is warming the planet and it's very damaging to a man's respiratory system. Yeah Wheeler addressed to that calling the science quote incomplete as thick tear drops of blood began to run from the corners of his eyes and down his face and he stated unequivocally that he believes the benefits of carbon greatly outweigh any potential risks. Bryce I'm fine ribbit again rivet again. I'm loving. They got the throw up and vomit. He did mostly blood and bile shortly shortly after Mr Wheeler was taken by the EMT's to a nearby hospital as he was wheeled into the e R he was heard saying quote. Oh God I'm going to die. This is the worst pain I've ever felt. Okay I'm going to die. I'm going to die cautionary tale for all of US Rebecca. Thank you wait. Don't you want to know if he died. I said thank you Rebecca. Thank you leslie well. The news can feel pretty bleak in chaotic these days so it's always helpful to step back and remember that there are people and organizations organizations out there that are consistently trying to do good one of those organizations. Make a reasonable request foundation. OPR's Jenner resnick. Went to their offices to learn. Learn more about the people who helped sick children's most feasible wishes come true. I want to now capture. Wow that's amazing but what about riding in a car. I don't know he really loves helicopters. Okay amazing but is there anything anything else you WANNA ride in Jaden. That was a staffer from the maker. Reasonable Requests Foundation meeting with a boy named Jaden in his hospital room. There's no doubt you're familiar with them from from getting a terminally ill ten-year-old decent tickets to a Minnesota Timberwolves game to making it possible for a little girl with leukemia to go to a moderately priced Italian restaurant the organization. Asian has been turning the practical hopes of sick children into reality since one thousand nine hundred five our motto here is. We'll see what we can do. And those are words we really live by as long as is there pretty easily doable and won't break the bank. We try to help those dreams. Come true that is make a reasonable request. CEO Tom Jameson. I'm here at the company's headquarters in Frederick Maryland Roland. It's the children that make the request memorable. I mean just last year we had this little girl Emma and she loved Captain America. He's our favorite and her excitement was was infectious so we really wanted to go all out and after spending. I don't know maybe a day and a half looking into it. We found this guy who went to high school with Chris Evans and it was a bit much to fly him out but we were able to get them to face time with her for a couple of minutes and he was able to tell her about how he in crews were sort of Friends of friends and even even had a couple of classes together. You could tell it really meant a lot to her. The Emma Thomas Talking about here is an eight year old with a rare blood disorder. Living in Florida I was able to connect with her mom over the phone. I'm still talks about it. I think his name was mark. He seemed Nice. So how does it all work. During my time at their offices I. I met a number of staffers or feasibility coordinators. As they're called. Tom Walked me through their process. So it's always best when the kid comes in with a reasonable request like if they tell us in their. I meeting that. They want to see a movie this currently playing at a theater near the hospital or they've always dreamed of meeting a lawyer. Those the best my name is Eva and I just wanted a dog. My name is Leeann and my dream is I want to go bowling for a whole hour but it doesn't always happen that way. It doesn't sometimes. It's a little bit lofty and we need to scale things back like recently. I worked with this little boy. David Tragic case leukemia. He has three tickets backstage to an Elton John Concert for him and his parents. We couldn't do that but we could get him to tickets on a bus from Houston to Dallas. I think he really liked that. That sounds reasonable. It was he went with his mom. It was one way so they had to pay their way back but still the foundation has twenty five local chapters around the country and get thousands of referrals year round if the child in question is close enough to one of their offices so that it won't be a huge hassle or travel thing. They'll arrange a meeting to determine if the request is a good fit. While I was in town a feasibility coordinator named emily was scheduled Israel to have one of those meetings with their permission. I typed along. Okay amazing but is there anything else you WANNA ride in Juden. Aw Hot air balloon okay. Now let's Kinda scale things back a little and start from scratch. Maybe you could go for a nice walk. After a little more back and forth family agreed to buy Jaden two different books about helicopters. Both paperback in keeping with the foundations. Noble mission it was a workable compromise for onion public radio. I'm Jenna resnick. Thanks for the Jenner. They do great work over there.

"And the key reason for them to do it other than satisfying commitment that that was made to the coal industry is to make this policy shift where EPA cannot consider health benefits not just of co benefits, which are are important, very important on themselves. But what this proposal says is that e can only consider health benefits that that can be monetize d- and the the challenge with public health protection, and recognized by congress under the Clean Air Act is that it can be really difficult to know and quantify the impacts of toxics in our environment on public health. And so over the decades EPA has has not always been able to quantify every last benefit that doesn't preclude them under the law from going forward with important. It's like this. Well, so we've just got thirty seconds before a break. But I want to give you the first shot at the next question that told my mind here. Okay. Isn't that a fundamental problem though, that if we're couching quantifiable costs against difficult to quantify benefits that you can skew the numbers, in whatever way you want to justify whatever regulation you want? Well, I it communists can argue until the cows come home about everything this EPA, the the the the Matt's EPA, the Obama EPA followed Owen be guidance on how to quantify these benefits, and we can talk about that more after the break.

"That was ten years in the making and it went through a number of scientific reviews and staffers at epa meticulously worked on that to make sure that it was sound can you talk about the process and then how that process led up to a meeting with pruitt who ultimately didn't seem to agree with the tech the decade of science sure on suggests time to can walk back a little bit i'll start with just what affluent is because i had to start their to effluent is i the wastewater that's a lot to be discharged into rivers and lakes and it comes from fifty nine different industries i produce effluent i'm anything from commercial animals arms to landfills too so companies and dental offices to coalfired power plants this waste water is often added contains dangerous toxins like mercury for example so it's it's not necessarily you know benign stuff i'm the f it guidelines for coalfired power plants hadn't actually been updated since the 1980's and that's when epa said that settling ponds literally allowing coal ash wastewater to settle and then siphoning the clean water from the top the pond was the latest in cutting edge technology and could be dumped into rivers and lakes in that worked for years and but a round uh i think it was two thousand the 2000s they noticed that they saw a really high concentration of toxins coming from wastewater that the hadn't seen before and they try to figure out how best to address it they started by creating a four hundred page survey mason it to seven hundred thirty three different facilities to understand how they of how they handle their wastewater currently scientists epa visited 73 facilities in eighteen states and flew to southern italy to check out technology that was in place at a facility there by the time the agency put forward its role governor.

"Americans for prosperity had sought a commitment from candidates new yorker writer jane mayer they had pushed a pledge for candidates who were running to get their money these candidates had to pledge to do nothing about global warming that would cost the sent some like one hundred fifty six members of congress signed this pledged jerry taylor every republican who had talked about the need to address climate action found something else to talk about there was no little chance obama could get congress throughout gone climate change we were on our heels politically and in a situation where it was difficult to drive a proactive agenda of climate change obama adviser brian dis and i think that was a source of constant frustration for the press but obama's epa didn't let aarp it continued to pressure the fossil fuel industry with antipollution regulations in oklahoma scott pruitt was keeping tabs thailand laughlin we had an hour and a half each and every day to and from the office where he's reading rules that are being issued by the federal agencies and it just pain brute wasted no time delivering on his campaign promise to fight washington the established what he called of federalism unit a special team that would fight federal rules imposed on oklahoma at the same time he dismantled an environmental protection unit his democratic predecessor had created for me it was a sad thing to watch the the dissolving of these units drew edmonson my successor spent his time in his federalism unit attacking rules and regulations instead of enforcing them.

"He promised to roll back and yesterday just yesterday uh epa administrator scott pruitt uh filed uh a proposal to basically roll back to repeal or rescind that exist e r that new obama regulation uh roll back the protections so the protection is would still be there on large bodies of water like the chesapeake bay but what was rolled back was the protections on the smaller tributaries that flow into the sea ah and that's not good news for the to speak bay or to sell endure any of the other buddies boarders themselves now the other thing that apparently the trump administration wants to do is to reduce funding for the eta by a huge chunk of money and d is already trying to prepare the way to eliminate some twelve 100 employees from the epa so that is he in an avid sell going to reduce the role the federal government plays in overseeing every aspect of the environment well except day in it is important to recognize the difference um in all things between what that president trump and the trump administration say they're going to do and and what is likely to actually happen uh in this case you're absolutely right the trump white house put forth a budget that would cut the epa by epa is budget by thirty one percent more than any other federal agency it's also clear that that proposal is dead on arrival in congress um epa administrator scott pruitt has gone to the house and the senate to talk about that budget and even congressional republicans who you know strongly oppose a lot of these environmental regulations looked at that and basically said there's no way that's going to happen on a lot of the epa is budget actually goes directly to state um a lot of the environmental protection work a regulatory work um but at the epa does happen on the state and local levels.
