Chicken in a Petri Dish: Singapore First to Allow Lab-Grown Meat Sales
"It may look like chicken and tastes like chicken. But that doesn't mean it's actually chicken. Take eat just for example. The company cell cultured chicken also known as lab grown meat just got approval to be sold in singapore. It's the first time a country is given regulatory approval to sell lab grown meat other companies are working on lab grown beef poultry pork and seafood. What is lab grown meat. You ask good question. Well for starters. It is grown on a farm technologists. Take a sample of muscle tissue from an animal. Then they typically put the cells into a liquid or gelatinous substance housed in a bio reactor one of those sci-fi movie containers that grow organisms. Most of the lab created meet. Looks like ground beef or small nuggets. No one's growing sirloin steaks in a lab just yet scientific american reports that one cow tissue sample can yield enough meat to make eighty thousand quarter pounders without slaughtering a single cow. Singapore's approval may lead to a quote revolution. In-kind kind clean meet one analysis in the guardian claimed. And that's a big part of its appeal. Livestock production is routinely plagued with stories of inhumane treatment of animals. A university of oxford study says the lab grown meat would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by ninety six percent and use just one percent of the land currently used for commercial livestock production would also slash water use and contamination. By bacterial waste. Electricity use would likely be higher to create meet in a lab however while the singapore approval may seem like a sign of things to come the. Us is not anywhere close to approving lab grown meat but would be manufacturers like just eat and competitor mosa meet got one step closer last year the department of agriculture and the food and drug administration formed an agreement to regulate the sector jointly that regulatory framework shows that the us takes innovation seriously and may help us manufacturers attract more funding box.

Takeaways from the NYT report on Trump's tax returns
"Never give a tax return when being audited. They're extremely complex people wouldn't understand him now the house goes and such defending they WANNA know every deal. I've ever done since declaring his candidacy for President Donald? Trump. Has refused to share his tax returns and gone to court to stop them being released. On Sunday The New York Times published an investigation into more than twenty years worth of Mr Trump's taxes, but not the documents behind them to protect its sources. The New York Times an explosive report despite receiving over four hundred, million dollars through two thousand eighteen report showed he paid paltry amounts of federal tax in recent years. The report claims that Mr Trump paid remarkably little tax since the turn of the Millennium. It suggests that many of the president's businesses are chronically loss-making. and it puts numbers to just how deeply personally indebted the president is. The revelations prompted a familiar retorted. News it's totally fake news made up fake. We went through the same store as you could ask me the same questions for years ago had a litigated this and talk about it. They are the same questions questions that arose in the presidential debates between Mr Trump and Hillary Clinton almost exactly for years ago maybe he doesn't want the American people. All of you watching tonight to know that he's paid nothing in federal taxes because trump's rebuttal at the time that makes me smart smart. Tonight another set of presidential debates this time between Mr Trump and Joe Biden. It seems certain that once again, Mr Trump's accounting practices will figure into the discussion. The big headline takeaways on that he paid. No federal income tax whatsoever intended the fifteen years through two, thousand seventeen and in twenty sixteen seventeen the year that he ran for the presidency his first year old in the presidency he paid any seven hundred fifty dollars in federal Income Tax James. Ashville economists, Washington bureau chief. His company's myriad companies were making truly enormous losses over these years. Presidents companies have been losing hundreds of millions of dollars. He's heavily indebted at the same time, and the the record also show us that hundreds of millions of debt. In fact, around four hundred millions of data he's personally on the hook for his liable to fall due mostly within the next couple of years. So it creates a picture of a heavily heavily indebted loss-making businessman on a truly Gargantuan scale who's been paying little or no federal income tax and has serious debt worries ahead of him as he faces a cash crunch meanwhile. But how can it be? He's paid. So little tax over all of that time. I guess two main ways one is that he appears to be setting a large amount of personal family expenditure against his business revenues. For example, he is setting his family home expenses, his plane expenses, even his apparently also colossal head writing expenses against VAT revenue but by far, the biggest means that he's avoiding paying large amounts of tax walls taking in hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue is by setting those revenues against the enormous losses that he's making overall to give you just some taste of the scale of that loss making it. Seems that the president has lost more than three, hundred, million dollars since the turn of the century on his golf courses alone he's lost more than fifty five, million dollars on his Washington DC hotel, which has become a sort of symbol for trump world of the president's firm hold on the capital, and yet it seems it's losing money hand over fist, and all of that is above board. He may already been some difficulty over the scale of losses that he's claiming to set against his revenues. The long trailed audit that his tax affairs. From the IRS we learn relate to attacks refunded that he received decade or so ago of seventy-three million dollars related, it appears to loss-making casinos in Atlantic city a business that he walked away from though we don't know it appears that there is an least an allegation or suspicion that he may have profited from those casinos even as he walked away from. Them if that is the case, he's not liable that tax refund that tax refund plus subsequent interest would now mean a hundred million dollar bill for the president. From the IRS, are you yourself surprised I mean that the president has been fighting so hard to keep this under wraps I just wonder how much you're surprised by what you see in these files. I don't think we're surprised by any of this. We already knew something of the scale of the president's loss-making. He declared a loss of nearly a billion dollars back in the ninety s sufficient to avoid paying any federal income tax for around a couple of decades that was in the sense is remarkable as anything that we've learned from this latest enormous cache of additional detail. But there are a couple of really significant scoops and then the fact that he could be on the. Hook for so much money from the IRS. If the audit goes against him in the fact that he's personally liable for so many hundreds of millions of dollars of loan that will fall due in the next few years. That also is a very significant detail in for those that worry that the president may be compromised that his indebtedness could lead him to make judgements that the American people might have calls to question for those worries. This is I think sort of additionally inflaming. But I mean the picture that emerges here regardless of the creativity of the accounting is somebody who is not running businesses very well. So. Donald Trump entered politics back in twenty fifteen claiming to things that he would bring his business genius to the Serbs the American people make government work better, and that he would sort of right the wrongs that lofty elite were habitually visiting upon the hardworking vulnerable American people and I think the of broad takeaway from this trove of tax information is either Donald Trump is an absolutely appalling businessman in which case is I claim is hard to support or he's bilking the treasury of millions of dollars of avoided tax that he should be paying in which case his second contention is also rather heart support. And do you think either I if either can be parched or or stood up, we'll have any influence on the election on the debates this week. Let's let's break that down Jason I. Think this is not going to be a sort of major vote moving scandal. We've had equivalent scandals that have that have not moved the president's support up or down much a tool and I. think there's no reason to expect this to do so and yet it's significant significant. Because the president opinion polls consistently tell us is substantially behind Joe Biden in this race with only little more than a month to go before the election. What this does is put yet another hurdle in front of his trying to re come on the news cycle get on the front foot, take the attack to Mr Biden nine. We may see some of that in the first presidential debate tonight where Joe Biden has really been handed the script by the New York Times as it of opening attack on a president who loses so much money in his business of as pays such little taxes and result.

No will this jury award stand or is the judge likely to cut the amount as happened in the first two verdicts. So the biggest part of this award is two billion dollars in punitive damages when those are damages that are awarded essentially to send a message to the defendant to try to correct their behavior than rest of it is fifty five million dollars in compensatory damages which are awarded for things like past economic loss in future economic loss to the couple and so oftentimes juries will award these massive amounts of punitive damages and on appeal or even from the same judge that oversaw the trial. They often get cut down, for example, in the first case that went to trial. There was a pretty large punitive damage award that the jury that the judge rather cut by more than two hundred million even before it. Up on appeal to the next level of court, so often these punitive damages or easy to dole out by Jerry. But they get ratcheted back with zero. What's the big question? Going forward facing these lawsuits. The big question now is whether and win these cases will ever reach a settlement on the company seems to be saying it's still too early. They say this litigation will take a long time. And none of these appeals from the earlier trials have gone through yet. And others. Have also said that the company should probably wait, and is likely to wait until appeals have been processed before they even think about settlement. But as the investor pressure ratchets up, it seems like the company has to either change its Trump strategy or do something to move toward resolution.

CEO of Israeli spyware-maker NSO on fighting terror, Khashoggi Murder, and Saudi Arabia
"We look specifically at a controversial Isreaeli company called the NS. Oh group valued at nearly a billion dollars. That says it developed a hacking tool that can break into just about any smartphone on earth. NS oh licenses. This software called Pegasus to intelligence and law enforcement agencies worldwide. So they can infiltrate the encrypted phones and apps of criminals and terrorists problem is this same tool can also be deployed by government to crush dissent. And so it is the Pegasus has been linked to human rights, abuses, unethical surveillance, and even to the notoriously brutal murder of the Saudi Arabian critic, Jamal kashogi. Headquartered in the Israeli city of hurts. Leah NS oh group operates in strict secrecy, and I said to them but co founder and CEO Shalev Julio has been forced out of the shadows. And not into a good light accused of selling Pegasus to Saudi Arabia despite its abysmal record on human rights and the word is that useful Pegasus to them. And then they turned it around to get kashogi how she'll get murder is horrible, really horrible. And therefore when? I I heard they're accused nations that our technology been used on Jamaica Shuki or on his relatives. I started an immediate check about it. And I can tell you very clear we had nothing to do with this horrible murder. It's been reported that you yourself went to Riyadh and Saudi Arabia. You yourself sold Pegasus to the Saudis fifty five million dollars. Don't believe newspapers. It's that a denial. No Pegasus is so expensive because it lets thirties do what they long couldn't break into smartphones remotely making everything in them completely visible all emails contacts and texts new old encrypted or not Pegasus allows detectives and agents to track locations, listen into an record conversations, basically turning the phone against its user in the company's eight year history. They have never let cameras in. But they wanted to show us. They're like any high tech company. Playstations and Polat. But there was a lot. We couldn't show notice. No faces the work is top secret. And some employees are ex military intelligence and Mossad Pegasus is such a sensitive spy tool. NS oh has to get approval before it can be licensed to any client. Let alone Saudi Arabia from the Rayleigh defense ministry as though it's an arms deal. Why would the government of Israel want? You know, what seems to be an enemy to have this technology a mobile talk about specific customer. But I can can you say that you won't and haven't sold Pegasus to a country that is known to violate human rights and imprisoned journalists and go after activists, I only say that we are sending Vegas in order to prevent crime until.

Why did Manafort judge throw guidelines out the window?
"We'll pull Manafort have more time tacked onto the forty seven months that he got in the northern Virginia case. Yes, he will the DC case is very different case. And here's why the sentencing guidelines for Manafort in DC are way above even the statutory maximum. And when that happens, the sentencing guidelines automatically become the statutory maximum in DC, that's two counts. Five years each you, add those up you get ten years. So that's the recommended guidelines right out of the gate for the judge is that ten year maximum that doesn't mean that she'll sentenced him to the full ten years. She might still go below the guidelines based on aggravating or mitigate or really mitigating factors not aggravating factors. So she she. Could go below those guidelines, but she will certainly be thinking about the sentence that Paul Manafort received whether she speaks about it or so so Danny let me ask you given the length of time that Paul Manafort created are engaged in these crimes and given the fact that he did it at the highest levels of government, and given that actually could be argued that it damaged American democracy of how in the world could this judge go so far below guidelines. The simple answer is because he can the sentencing guidelines for well. Over a decade now have been advisory only. And that means that judges can go below the sentencing guidelines as long as they shocked that he did. Yes, I was. And in fact, it's on the record. I did believe the judge would go below the sentencing guidelines, but I was thinking more on the order of ten. In years to fifteen years not for the not in the five year range. But if you look at the statistics, if you look at all defendants are almost all defendants sixty nine years of age or older who are sentenced in the federal system. Most of them get in about the five year range and most fraud and similar cases get much lower sentences. Remember, the guidelines are not a representation or an empirical study of how recent sentences have gone, they are prominently gated by the sentencing commission, and in fact, often you see that courts, go below and they can go above the guidelines because they legally can do so and have been able to do. So for many years now, Barbara mcquade, I would ask you how you feel about the sense given. But I know how you feel because you're on the top of the fold here in the New York Times a quote from you calling the sentence atrociously low and absurd. I'll ask you to explain that. There's also another element of this prosecutor said in coach. It yesterday effectively. Yes, we talked about Paul Manafort for fifty hours. We got nothing value for him. In fact, we know now that he lied to us. Yeah. I think that this sentence is atrocious. Low forty seven months out of a range of nineteen to twenty four years. And actually, this is something you see quite a bit in white collar cases as Danny said even out of the gate. He was expecting a sentence of ten to fifteen years. And I think it is Joe described the evidence of two America's we see this very frequently in white collar crime cases, where defendants get a huge break on their sentencing guidelines. They say things just like Paul Manafort said that I feel shame. I feel like I've already been punished because of the embarrassment. I feel among my peers, well, tell that to the indigent defendant who doesn't have prominent people to write letters for them to vote for them all of their good works to say that he has led and otherwise blameless life is like the old joke about other than that. How was the play MRs Lincoln he committed fifty five million dollars in infra? God over an extensive period of time failed to pay six million dollars in taxes. It's a serious crime. And you got a slap on the wrist. And I think for that people should be outraged.
