"Bible dot horde. It's 10 35. The Trump Administration has reportedly refused to allow members of President elect Joe Biden's transition team to meet with officials that U. S intelligence agencies that are controlled by the Pentagon Officials tell The Washington Post The Biden team has not been able to engage with leaders at the N S. A and Defense intelligence agency. That's despite a General Services administration decision last month, clearing the way for federal agencies to meet with representatives of the incoming administration. The delays came. Even his Biden advisers spent much of this week meeting with officials at the office of the director of National Intelligence and the CIA, which are independent of the Defense Department. That all comes as the president elect gets ready to deal with a host of threats. There are urgent international concerns like Iran, which has vowed to get revenge for the assassinations of two of its military leaders. Then there's North Korea's nuclear weapons. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan could reignite with the withdrawal of US troops. But perhaps the number one concern is the large number of American government workers retiring. They're part of the baby boomers. This group, according to the FBI has caught the eye of foreign agents willing to offer them large paydays to sell sensitive information about the U. S. A J. Green W. T O P News. Two bodies have been found in a military training area at the Army's largest base. The bodies were found at Fort Bragg in North Carolina on Wednesday, and officials say their deaths were not related to official unit training.

Epic Games Announces Plans for Fortnite Esports in 2021

"Minute from E Sports Network. The Esports minute is presented by technology game-changers. Check them out at TGC play link below epic released a blog post yesterday talking about their plans for the fortnite Esports ecosystem in 2021. We've come a long way since epic pledged would hundred million dollars towards fortnite Esports events back in 2018. The game has waned in popularity a bit but still commands a massive audience according to Epic 15 million unique players took part in the end of the season event earlier this week. The competitive side was also supposed to have some consistency in 2024 the first time but as everyone knows consistancy and twenty20 just don't belong in the same sentence. So first let's go for the bad news from this blog post epic is not currently planning any in-person events for 2021 including the fortnite World Cup. This is unfortunate, but it off. Safe choice to make if we get a massive roll out of a vaccine in early spring which seems like the most likely possibility at this point that could all change but for now online events just have to be the plan change it on the positive side the Ford I championship series or f n c s we moved to trios as the primary form of competition previously solos and Duo's when the main choice in fortnite Esports in my opinion Iraq is a crucial aspect when it comes to enjoying e sports events and trios adds another level of communication and strategy. The fmcs will be the Bayside competition for fortnite Esports. Basically the closest thing to a regular season with the fmcs will be the Baseline competition for fortnite Esports. Basically the closest thing to a regular season, but epic will also be putting together more weekly tournaments more random unique tournaments and more Creator Cubs 2021 and not all of those will be in trios. So fans of Duos and solos will still have some events to look forward to basically they're mostly missing

Alex Adelman From Lolli: Bitcoin For Everyone

"What would you say to someone near people getting into the space. Just about volume. What you and your team are trying to do two things that you really focused on that you think are going to stay consistent no matter how much bitcoin goes up or how much people use it for. Those of you. Don't know lolly is a rewards company. We give people bitcoin when they shop online We work with just over a thousand different merchants To give people the easiest way to earn bitcoin when they do something that they were already going to do. Which in our case shop so Some things that are consistent. We're always going to be adding new merchants onto the platform giving people a wider range You know things like things are gonna get easier. The more merchants we have to earn more bitcoin In a we some things that i think that people are going to expect in the future more merchants Easier functionality across web and mobile. Not we've been primarily web bogus Because that's where the majority of of online shopping occurs and the biggest purchases biggest. Gmv purchases happen there. So people can earn a far more on web than they can on on mobile in most cases so I think things do expect would be like the mobile app Rollout things like easier. Search easier functionality. That just lets you earn and more places. I'm a big user. Lally myself and what. I was talking to you a little bit about before this. I think that with the incentive like this it really does even change some ecommerce business models because i would you say you're able to talk to some of your retail partners. You know are they. Are they more partnering with you. Because they don't have the knowledge of the actual infrastructure to build that reward system itself or is it more so that you know you all have worked hard to make that User experience so seemless users are consumers are actually motivated to shop at particular place Because of the end reward that they're getting right. It's like if you have to shoe companies per se and one of them doesn't have lawley and the other one uses some other type of merchant you know. Would he be able to tell me anything about that. Like are you able to see that on your platform. Even some data that you can show to people saying that this does actually motivate consumers to to buy this particular product per se a because of bitcoin. Yeah so A little bit of background. But just i you know how we got here and why why this model works so basically the way. The model works is we partner with these merchants. The merchants are giving us they pay us when our user shop their sites so it's like incentive marketing loyalty marketing. They they want to attract new shoppers. So a little bit of backstory like our team had built the company previously called cosmic We built the leading ecommerce gateway a later became known as the buy button That was popularized is like giving people bill by the wear and he gave -mergency ability to sell anywhere so we worked with hundreds of later days thousands of different merchants and ultimately were acquired by our biggest customer which pot sugar to come to power one point two billion retail revenue and we were acquired again by rocketing ten which is the biggest cashback company in the us in many parts of the world so We have really understand like you know what these merchants actually want. What what what this relationship means for them through a cashback model we then after. We parted ways with iraq and we started to look at. What's the bigger problem. What do we want to solve next and we kept looking looking at. Bitcoin is an incredible way for people to have access to their money to truly own their money See bitcoin is being the best money in the world and money really hasn't been invented. Reinvented in a long time. Hasn't been innovated on. It's been sitting on these like archaic so big point just sort of disrupted money overnight and And and yet so few people were able to get it so we wanted to change How people adopted bitcoin and we know that less than one percent of the world would consider themselves investors and currently the only way to for us. The only way to really get into bitcoin was through investing in it or mining it so fewer people are are minors in the heart investors. And and. so what you're left with is like if you're only building a company that or technology that less than one percent of people will ever adopt you have to break through. You have think bigger so we were looking at rocketing. We're looking at rewards. We're seeing hundreds of millions of people all across the world that we're familiar with cashback rewards and we're like everybody shops everybody you know. Sh swipe their card and in earns money They're totally used to that. So how do you make it way easier. And so we're like way bigger market Let's let's create law this lawley. In order to distribute bitcoin to more people way easier and then start to teach about the principles of investing in mining through found money through rewards. so yeah. I you know we. We launched lawley and we'd had success so far in bringing bitcoin to the masses.

Who killed Mohsen Fakhrizadeh?

"We start with breaking news. And iran's defense ministry has confirmed that one of the country's top nuclear scientists has been assassinated two diff- of muslim fucker. Saudi is very much proving to be one of those stories in which people will see whatever confirmations of their own prejudices and suspicions they wished to it might reasonably be argued that this description applies in the online epoch in particular to pretty much every story but it is especially the case with stories set in the middle east and which may would depending wh one prefers to believe may not involve israel. So it's best to start with what we know for certain. We know that molson fucker. Zodda was a renowned nuclear physicist a senior engineering of iran's nuclear program and a brigadier general in iran's islamic revolution regard core. He is believed to have been deleted of what was known as project amid the program. Iran established in the late nineteen eighty s to explore the prospects of iranian nuclear weapon and closed in two thousand three according to the international atomic energy agency. We know that he was killed. Last friday near absorbed a small town seventy kilometers east of tehran. And that he was buried with full state on. Who's on sunday law. Main hobby lobby. No optic not that big van owen ruling to the questions of precisely how he was killed by whom there is a bewildering smorgasbord of answers. While it seems clear enough that Was shot dead as the car in which he was. Travelling was the object of an ambush. There are conflicting reports of this assassination being conducted by a posse of live operators. Some of whom may or may not have died at the scene and or by some species of remote controlled weapon monotony iran bit who we bid and me. The enemies of iran have to know that the iranian nation and the country's officials a brave and intrepid enough to respond to this criminal action. As on a has dan in dommage in our yet caught on era by-pass off pigs around as to who might have done it. Iranian officialdom and iranian media have been quick to blame either israel or the mujahedeen e. Cock a curious cultish iranian rebel group which has been a persistent irritant to the islamic republic. And who currently appear to be based between iraq. France and albania. The has also been an amount of copy pasted umbrage directed at the united states or as president hassan rohani of iran prefers to address it the global arrogance on record. Israeli sources have feigned bafflement though the new york times has quoted an unnamed senior. Israeli official is suggesting that the world should thank israel. Four reside is demise. The mujahideen have been reticent. As of this broadcast the iran has yet to present any concrete evidence of their assertions. And if and when they do it will likely be impossible for any independent observers to verify them and iran does reflexively blame israel for pretty much anything it is only a couple of years since former head of iran's military major general signed fear is a body accused of running a network of spy lizards. But it's not like there isn't something of a circumstantial case to answer this year. Several sites in iran which might or might not have been related to iran's nuclear program was struck by explosions which did not appear coincidental and at least four other iranian. Nuclear scientists have met violent ends since two thousand ten to killed by car bombs one by a motorcycle. Bomb one shot dead. In most instances iran blamed israel and israel denied involvement while also making it as clear as it could be regarded even the faintest prospect of a nuclear armed iran as intolerable almost ziff inviting tehran to take the hint and a is at least arguable. Most infact saudis college was marked in two thousand eighteen when israeli intelligence highsted from a warehouse in tehran thousands of files pertaining to iran's nuclear program when israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu announced his feet. He mentioned zadeh by name. A key. part of the plan was to form new organizations to continue the work. This is how dr moosa farkas the of project about put remember that name a day so along with the questions of who and how there is another why in particular wine now whoever killed most fuck resolve will have known that iran would feel obliged to retaliate or at least threatened to retaliate. And that this would make any kind of diplomacy with tehran difficult. Whoever killed muslims will also have understood that a window to such engagement might have been about to open interior. Vashon sean medicare dishman salvage assassination shows. The enemies are experiencing anxious weeks feeling. That the pressure's fading away. And the world circumstances a change a heart. The camby share shadow. It's johnny you're gonna with the swearing in of a new american president who has sounded keen on returning the us to the two thousand fifteen nuclear deal with iran out of which the current president flounced of the possible consequences. All fockers ought is death to seem reasonably certain one that iran's nuclear ambitions whatever they may actually be will have been hinted at least some ought to that.

Abdullah spoken and Kara, where he saw it. Turkey's support for negotiations between the Afghan government and the Taliban that are taking place in cutter to find an end to decades of war. The talks have made little progress so far. Abdullah said of the US's decision to reduce troop levels in Afghanistan from over 4.5 1000 to 2.5 1000 quote. This is the decision of the U. S administration and we respect it. And quote, acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller announced that we would reduce troop levels in Iraq and Afghanistan by mid January, in line with President Trump's pledge to bring our forces home. Afghan officials have expressed concerns that a rapid reduction in American troops could strengthen the negotiating hand of the Taliban, while the militants are still waging a full fledged insurgency against government forces. Abdullah said it's not like things will go a zwei wish, adding however, that he welcomed to the fact that 2500 troops will remain and NATO will also retain its presence. Abdullah said, quote what form or what shape it will take. That remains to be seen, but they will certainly push for a peaceful settlement and quote Washington signed a deal with the Taliban in February to pave the way for the dough, hot talks and American forces eventual withdrawal.

Regardless of what the Taliban agreed to, and negotiations they can and have broken agreements before.

Iran's top nuclear scientist killed

"April 2018, the Israeli Prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, made a dramatic presentation in English of what he said was a huge Israeli intelligence hall. He said it proved that Iran had pursued a nuclear weapons program. On the stage. Behind him were shelves full of ring binders and dozens of CDs. Microphone in hand. He gave a lengthy power point presentation. At one point. He emphasized that one off the main Iranian nuclear scientists was a man called Mohsen Factory today. Key part of the plan was to form new organizations to continue the work. This is how Dr Muslim Fuck is a dead head of project about put it, remember that name Fuck is a day. So here's his director. That's right here. And he says the general aim is to announce the closure of project Ahmad. But then he adds special activities. You know what that is? Special activities will be carried out under the title of Scientific Know how developments. Remember that name, said Mr Netanyahu will on Friday. Most in factories today was killed by a gunman just outside Tehran. Iran has accused Israel of the assassination on the president has sent. Rouhani said that the killing of their top nuclear scientists will not slow down Iran's nuclear program. This is what Iran's foreign minister Javad Zarif, tweeted on Friday. Terrorists murdered an eminent Iranian scientist today, this cowardice with serious indications of an Israeli roll shows desperate warmongering of the perpetrators. Iran calls in the international community and especially the European Union. And their shameful double standards and condemn this act of state terror. Well, there's been no response so far from Israel. Let's speak to the BBC's chief International correspondent Lease Do Set, whose lives on the line from Saudi Arabia is Capital, Riyadh and in the region as a whole lease. Presumably people are still digesting this news and the significance of it. Adjusting and worrying about the news. I have to say, because the region divides along those who would firmly back this Alliance, If you like between Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu, the Saudi leadership on by the team of President Trump in regarding Iran is the main enemy in the region, and that would include the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, who recently signed Theo peace deals as they were called with the state of Israel, But countries like Iraq Lebanon. Syria, which have very close ties to Iran, one way or the other will be worried because what we've seen in the past when retaliation comes and it is certain to calm in some form at some time. It is often executed in the region through proxies. So I think the region as a whole is nervous. But they were nervous already because there is a growing sense in the region that this is being regarded but particularly by Israel and Saudi Arabia as a last moment to try to inflict crippling blows on Iran's nuclear program before the new team of President Biden enters the White House, talking about Joining the 2000 and 15 nuclear deal that President Trump pulled out of and has been trying to destroy ever since. If that retaliation is, as you say, certain to common, it will probably happen. In the region. When you look back at what Iran has done in the past, when faced with similar situations, what has it tended to do by way of retaliation? This is a very sensitive moment fraught with risk and Iran. Knows that everyone knows that and not not just in the region, but in many Western capitals as well. The If Iran retaliates now there is a risk and it knows it that there will be another retaliation and that the region could again be plunged into even greater attention. Just as a new administration takes takes pop power in Washington, and this will jeopardize what is already going to be a very, very difficult effort. Try to get a negotiating track underway between the United States and Iran and the other big powers who were involved in the 2000 and 15 nuclear deal. So it Zaveri dangerous because Iran summon Iran maybe thinking we must retaliate because many will remember that after the assassination of Awesome Sulamani almost a year ago. The remained scene is the main architect of of Iran's policies across the region. There was a retaliation but a limited one. It wasn't a to use a word that's often used a spectacular one. But Iran must be wondering now. Well, what will we do This time? Our honor is at stake. Our strategic interests are at stake, but they may also fear that they're being Baited If you like that, if they attack that will be a signal for an even greater escalation by its enemies in the region. It's very, very, very difficult balance now. And everyone knows that If the Israelis are behind this, what are they? What are they thinking about the possible consequences of it? Do you believe Benjamin Netanyahu has had one driving ambition. You heard him in 2000 and 18. I wasn't the only time he brought a big power point presentation to the world stage to warn the world about the evils of Iran but the evils of there not just a nuclear program but of weaponized dead nuclear program. It has to be said that Yah yah! YAH also investigated and believe that that program was shelved in 2000 and three. They also talked to the report about most in factories a day. But since then, Israel, Israeli and American intelligence have believed despite Iran's denials that that program is continuing, so I think I mean, I can't put myself in the shoes of Israeli intelligence, the Saudi leadership, but Regard the greatest danger as Iran. Anything else pales in comparison least Thank you very much. Indeed. At least two set in Riyadh some thoughts from my guests and Holly Dagres. I mentioned at the start of the program that you're Appearance today is timely. What's your take on this? Well, I think we need to look for a moment at that Power Point presentation and April 2018 after Netanyahu gave his power point to an audience of one that being President Donald Trump. Weeks later, he withdrew unilaterally from the Iran nuclear agreement and reimpose sanctions as part of his maximum pressure policy. We're now a little over two years into that maximum pressure policy, and it has proved to be a failure. It has neither changed the country's behavior nor trigger the regime's collapse in Iran. And so what's been happening here is that in the past couple of weeks U S President Donald Trump actually asked his national security team, at least after reports tell us and sought options to strike Iran over its nuclear program. And so while it was, he was dissuaded from a military strike. This possibly could have been one of the options that was floated to respond to the latest nuclear build up, which is that as part of The sanctions. Iran has decided for the past year it is going to it's going tol continue aspects or breach aspects of the nuclear court until these sanctions are removed. So essentially, this could very much be a last ditch effort by the Trump administration to tempt her on to retaliate. And scuttle any future diplomacy.

Whatsapp new features are awesome, Windows completes 35 Years

"Is something that is every day. Hello everybody my name is of needs. I'm your host for the show. Dirt tax view vision initiative to hear views on all the topics around tech v focused on the left cautions as well as ideas knowledge inquiries and ll bean hall unfiltered around deck so today in the third episode we are going to discuss about the windows. Completing twenty five years followed by the views on brought many new features india banding for three more apps basically around china and also few of the things that were left from the last episode saw in the last episode. We discussed the apple amazon. Chipset max and it's bracing and stuff. So now i think it is time that we start evaluating that. What we did was right or not to start. The things of the reviews. Were not out yet. And most of the apps that required to be updated so now i think is not the right time that yes and now i think it is the right time to make a comment about chipset and the max that it. So if you're a mac to the es ast and want to switch to the chipset's you can go ahead. I can't stop you. But what i'm gonna tell you. Is that as of now. Don do back if you're more than productivity field. You want doing be doing that as of now. So most of the apps that we have on the windows machines are based on the intel versions of the mac west but x eighty six compatible and the runs on different platforms that's air so for the apps get migrated to the it. It is the position of the developers of those apps. Not happen so it will take not a long. I would say around grew two three months more. At least it might take six months for media apps that being used like all be creative cloud the complete cloud would be upgraded with an chipsets by the end of first water offering green declined so in short it is just the first chipset from apple and it requires a huge of the back and sources and bell pink. So might've been future very soon. It would be a complete dedicated one but as of now. I won't give you an advice to go ahead if you're more into more of paid apps like the finally got through and other apps that code apple products and you believe in your security you can go ahead. I am no one to stop you guys. Because finally got runs the best on them jobs doug lord the storage options what. I don't feel good about the apple amazon. Tip search is that it has them embedded on it so being down weathered you can't upgrade your app in near future. If you want to operate you need to buy a new one. I said that in the last as well. But we know that if it's been for the extract eight gigs going from index. To sixteen weeks. You need to pay twenty thousand more in india. That's roughly around two hundred fifty dollars so by such a huge prize when you get better than this. And it's only eight gigs more so earlier. What it used to be there. Were some ready. Rams that used to work with the mac. Like the macro iraq pro. I would say and then it would work fine and everything was great but now you can't do that will have to buy an entire new laptop. Be more in the starting. Apple's programs compatibility is not that much that someone from creative field with do that initially. But if you're from a person who just do office work might which your very soon so that was all that we had from the last episode can now for this episode lex started windows windows von has company did cady five years just threw three days back and it is very great news because as much as those old it gets back he s. You hear everything right. The first windows was some something that no one elected and now windows is the main desktop software or i would say a breeding system. That's being used. Windows has got convenience words as many depend on plugs up like the windows. Ninety eight was an okay. Xp game that was a breakthrough most of the systems. What any and got the windows.

Interview With Karen O'Mahoney

"Marketing world increasingly dominated by data brandon still matters. Karen manny the ceo and founder of brand. Loosen montreal heads up a strategic branding agency that works with tech companies to harness the power of their brand welcome to marketing spark iraq. Thanks for having me as i said off the top in a bb world dominated by data. I'm curious about your thoughts on the state of branding. How much of a focus. Our bb companies putting on branding. These days given the fact that there's so much noise there's so much content. There's so much social media out there. And what i actually find that a lot of people really have honed in on their brand and because of that because there's because of all the noise reading and what we want probably see a lot in large companies that they're really starting to focus in a back to the core back to already makes them different when you think about brand it's companies. Dna is impacting sales and marketing but also obviously has pace in leadership and decision making direction so for a lot of people. It's coming back to. What do i want my company to be whereas my company direction taking me. And how does that affect all of our teams so everything from product development to hate your operations the whole company and so from that point of view we find that a lot of these companies are coming back to their brand and really start to think about it a lot more to say okay. Well we have the power in our hands to reading wheeled this company and adopt whatever landscape comes up but now we wanna see where we want to take this on where our vision is gonna go so before we move forward. Let's take a step back to wire brands coming back to the brand. I mean it strikes me as as a brand person myself as that. Brandon is always important branch. Always be part of what you do and how you position yourself. Why are they coming back. What does that mean does that mean. They they didn't pay attention to brand. They were focused on other things. Maybe provide a little bit of context. Fisher so i think what. It is a lot of the time. It's people are thinking about their brand. Does one done right. So it's like a lot of the time they will think about doing lebron's strategy for example. Say oh you know. We've done like a while back and they're like that's been fine. It's kept us going so far. It's kept us going for the last years. And they take that you can bring out loud. These brown strategies messages through marketing through content. Through all of the ways that you're engaging but the thing is there. They have been noticing over time as as the company as a changes. If now time to refocus on say okay. Well we've changed we've role we've Started to open to new markets. We've started to look different directions. And that's where it's coming back to the bronze strategy. I would say not. Maybe i should say it's coming back to a brand strategy to see where next right so it's it's keeping that focus on on a appointed the future the minute. The point in the future is suddenly behind you. You should have done your broaden strategy again it sounds like that idea of like keeping it ahead of us that you can continue to have it as your north star. So how do brands not adopt the one and done or our brand is written in stone approach. Because you know as you know well. I'm being immersed in this. It's brand very fluid. It's very dynamic it evolves over time and and it and it can evolve very quickly so you you always have to be on top of the to make sure that your brand is relevant it resonates and it's aligned with the way that people are thinking and talking and acting from your perspective header brands. Make sure that they're they're always being brand focused. Always making sure that their brand is refreshing date. Yeah so. I mean from our point of view. It's coming from that central core rights coming from that central leadership team and moving out from there so the first thing is commitment. It's really say okay. Well are we committing to for our brand is gonna take us. And if that's the case nets keep it relevant. Let's keep on top of a. Let's build into our company. Values is built it into our company goals and start to actually reflect that in all of our department. So this is that idea of having your brand with something. That's actually adopted and taken to actually run your company and i think a lot of people see brand a lot of the time in terms of marketing only and they don't see it in terms of the full patch of your company so when you know the marketing the messages around marketing can adopt as long as they're still on brown right. The you know you can have campaigns that are about different things as long as they are within the bronze dna itself right so they don't go against the brand values they don't who have company mission they don't against the company purpose however while we don't see a lot of time is maybe people adopting the brand across their companies. And that's something that we tried to help people to do which is to build in those company goals For each department around the actual brand itself so see adoption on the actual usage of the broad in an everyday sense. And that's how you keep it relevant one to the employees but also to every new work with because again if your employees understand the broad. They're living as well right. So if you imagine you're an operations person you understand the brand you lived around you talk about the brown. Do you work with your teams anew operate within the bronze structure now whenever you ever time you work with clients for example you're going to bring that same dynamic you're going to bring that same elemental the with you so that experience translate across how we work every day as well one other question. Why the ask you in terms of making sure

Be uncomfortable at least once a day

"Our guest is a us marine. Who is helped entrepreneurs develop their businesses after being medically retired because of his service in the middle east. He became a certified dog trainer. He started a full service dog facility and continues to support Support the pet care industry to this day. His an interesting one with great lessons for all leaders. Please join me in welcoming dan splendor to the program. Welcome to the program daniel Appreciate you joining us today. Well certainly thank you for having me. Excellent i i i love your background so i'm really interested in hearing more about it and i was hoping you could maybe a a walk through your lures. Your leadership journey. I guess if you will Just kind. Tell us a little bit about About your background and how you've gotten to the point where you are today. Okay well. I i guess i'll just start off. I don't wanna make it long but to start off the entire life. I've always been a leader. And so one of the things that i realized very young when i was probably middle school in going into high school is that while i may not be the captain of every team that i've played sports on or anything like that Many my friends usually looked up to me for answers in directions and things like that and support germ and that actually slowly grew more as i left. Highschool enjoy the military I joined the marine corps. Right out of high school went to paris. Island and became a satellite in channel satellite technician. And so in the military. Obviously there's a there's a heart rank structure and everybody understands that so we are quickly thrown into the low man on the totem pole. When i joined the military but quickly it shows that shows up. Who's the leader news non. And who's going to be moving forward and heading up things and stuff like that. And that's fortunately one of the things i did. When i was in the military's i quickly moved up in taking leadership roles there. Unfortunately my military career was cut short due to getting injured in iraq in two thousand and three medically retired in two thousand four from ring core. And after that. I went back and actually finished up. Schooling in did some other basic work with the intention of starting my own company working with animals and so two thousand ten came around and i finally opened my business. And that's my one of my companies. I open it still in business today. I have four other companies. That i run a nonprofit and Taking over that leadership role if it slowly grown from small things into actually running companies and stuff like that. So i've gone through the entire gamut of things it sounds like it. Yeah i mean and by the way. I mean it's makes these days. It may sound cliche. But i've sincerely mean this. Thank you thank you for your service. I really sincerely mean that my father was a career navy officer so i I have a real appreciation for people like yourself. That have served the country. So i i do sincerely mean that now it you know for people that are outside of that environment. Maybe haven't been part of the military record. They they i know their idea. Their idea of what may be leadership is like in in the military is really different than what it truly is. I dunno fi comment makes sense but help me understand a little bit about what you learned about leadership as a result of having served in the in the marines for the time that you dan i think one of the biggest things nowadays unfortunately the current state of the world many people whoever they whatever generation you wanna call it. Don't see that they need to work for being leader. They just wanna come out in the current situations as having a twenty year old life coach at twenty years old. I don't think anybody has any experience. Be talking about how to be a life coach then again. That's one of the things at the military really gave you an experience because short of having a college degree in going in the officer program. Right out of college you came in as the low man on the totem pole. No matter what and you had to work your way up from the very bottom no matter. What and that again for becoming a leader. That's one of the best things you could ever do is start at the bottom. Work your way up because you how it works for everyone. And when you're put in that position as a leader now can relate to your junior marines at junior military members because you know what you went through back in that day in dealt with and that's the same thing for any other leadership position we hold unfortunately today side. A lot of people think they can just jump right into the general manager. They've no management experience. But they wanna go from basic employees. Do general manager just as they've been in business for a year or two and they don't understand that there's a lot of quality you have learned throughout that and again in the military is a perfect example. The first day in the military you were taught how to tie your shoes That sounds insane but not everybody knew how to do that. You started at the very basics. You're gonna put your leftover. You're right and tie your shoes. And from there forward you started learning more and more and they built you up from the ground up so that you knew everything you needed to notice a rod. And that's i think one of the best things about the military environment that helps rogue great leaders.

"iraq" Discussed on Today, Explained

"Ah We come on the air tonight. We have breaking news. Iran's Revolutionary Guard says that it has launched ballistic missiles in the direction of American air bases in Iraq where troops are stationed Iranian state. Television says the attack was launched in revenge for the assassination of the Iranian General Gossip Austin Sulejmani missiles fired tonight. Part of what. Iran is now calling Operation Martyr Salah Body. McDonald's loans for inside Iran struck to at base. Isn't that bill and I'll assads just west of Baghdad. We have learned what are the basis targeted. Asad airbase in western Iraq and on BAR president trump and the first lady visited a little more than a year ago December. Two Thousand Eighteen Jin Williams. Vox How much damage to these missiles. Do last night so we don't yet know the damage to the facilities as themselves the US military in the Iraqis are still kind of figuring that out and they haven't really made anything clear on that but we do know about casualties and according to NATO forces who you're part of the coalition that's involved there with the US according to the US and according to the Iraqi prime minister there were no casualties among any of the US troops any of the Iraqi forces who were there or any of the international forces. Is it still a big deal. That Iran chose to launch these ballistic missiles the fact that they decided to fire ballistic. Dick Missiles from Iran is a very important point as opposed to as opposed to using their proxy groups these Shia militia groups that are backed by Iran inside Iraq. They typically do that way. They will have these groups fire rockets toward facilities or rocky facilities and that kind of creates a level of plausible muscle. Deniability right we didn't do it. It was just groups over there. We have nothing to do with them but this was a very clear message it was. We are sending these from Iran they are directly targeting orbiting. US facilities and. We're very clear that we are very angry about the killing of costumes for the money and we're making no bones about it and the Iranian government has issued statements about this attack. What are they explicitly saying? They are saying that. This is a proportionate response for the killing of Money the Iranian military commander that the the US assassinated. They are saying that this is a concluded response so Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif. Said you know we executed this attack but we have concluded included it so they are very strongly signaling that this was our response. We had to respond and they they did. The Iranians basically had no choice but to respond to the killing feeling of such a high level military commander. But they're also saying look. We are doing this big show of force but we are stopping the light of actually killing the Americans or any Iraqis for for that matter. The United States killed Iran's like foremost military leader and their revenge was peppering some bombs with mixed results that killed nobody not that this is like death toll for death toll. Was this sort of a more hesitant response from Iran. Iran definitely could have done a lot more and they chose not to. They have a lot of ways that they can strike against Americans and American allies in the region including Israel and they threatened to do so last night. We were watching this unfold. They were issuing all kinds of threats saying if the US responds again then we could potentially launch a terrorist attack inside the the United States which they could theoretically do they were saying you know. We could attack targets in Israel they specifically named the city of Haifa. They also said they could attack Dubai but but they chose not to. How did president trump react so somewhat? Surprisingly last night he reacted fairly positively. Lots of exclamation points right. Yeah he he tweeted quote all is well. Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. And you wouldn't think those statements would really go together all is well Iran just fired missiles missiles that US but he said later in the tweets so far so good and bragged about having the most powerful military but in that tweet last night he also said I will be making a statement tomorrow morning and he did today a little bit after eleven o'clock from the White House so you walked out to the podium. He's he's flanked. By all of his top generals military brass and Mike Pence looking very somber and he walked right out to the microphone and said as long as I'm president of the United States. It's Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon. Good morning isn't it. I quite a preface. It is very odd. It was kind of important to what he was going to get into later on but there were three main points that really stood out to me from trump's speech. The first is that he made it very clear. Clear that big. US military response to Iran's attacks last night. Iran appears to be standing down which is a good thing for for all parties concerned at a very good thing for the world. He was very clear in saying this ends here in terms of the big military fight however he he did say some other things that could be taken as escalation and a little bit lower level. The United States will immediately impose additional punishing economic economic sanctions on the Iranian regime. These powerful sanctions will remain until Iran. Changes its behavior that that is not de escalation that is escalation. He is putting even more sanctions on Iran and then he addressed the nuclear deal. It's called the that joint comprehensive plan of Action Shen the US withdrew from that deal already but other countries still remain in it including the UK. Germany France Russia China and they must now break away from the remnants of the Iran deal or JCP away and that's really important because under that deal those countries plus the United States when we were still in the deal basically basically agreed to lift economic sanctions and give Iran economic benefits in exchange for them putting curbs on their nuclear program so essentially calling on those countries to reimpose sanctions. Nations stopped doing business any business with Iran and go back to much more hardcore like economic pressure against Iran. So again in that case not deescalatory it quite the opposite. You've been waiting for twelve hours for the president's remarks here what was your major takeaway from what he said so the big takeaway is that everyone can breathe a sigh of relief for now that the big scary bombing each other conflict between us and Iran is probably dying down for now however one thing you need to understand about Iran. Is that when they do responses like this they will tend to do a big response like we saw last night something showy right but then they will do things things that are a lot lower level kind of over the course of time so we could see things like cyber attack other kind of lower level fighting or attacks from those those proxies that we're used to seeing those kinds of things rocket attacks from proxy groups in Iraq and other places potentially targeting of US troops or US allies and other places like Syria Yemen and other other places like that so while I think there could be a second wave of attacks. They definitely threatened that so far they seem to be signaling very clearly that none of that will happen and unless the US escalates in return but we could continue to see the kind of low level Tit for tat kind of violence and can a shadow war between the US and Iran likely continue for a long time to come so if trump strategy here was to take out a major opposition figure to the United States and face. No real consequences Did he just win. Is Too soon to tell. Honestly if this is where it ends then you could probably say that. Yeah that you know. We took out this very dangerous figure Gary who is responsible for the deaths of a lot of Americans and Iraqis by the way with few consequences with no American casualties with no Iraqi casualties. But this this isn't over yet and at the bare minimum. This certainly escalated things to a very dangerous level so there was no death toll in these missile attacks attack that Iran launched last night but overnight something like one hundred and seventy people did die in Iran in this plane crash in Tehran. Did that have anything to do with this. So this Boeing flight headed from Tehran to Kiev Ukraine crash pre shortly after takeoff inside Iran. So far it doesn't look like it had anything to do with the US Iran eight. It's still too early to tell. They're still investigating the Ukrainian government. Initially she came out and said there was no sign of terrorism or any other like missiles or anything like that but they then took that statement down and are now saying it's under investigation. It looks like there was probably some kind of maybe a fire. Engine failure had happened shortly after takeoff so in other words like a mechanical failure. But it's too soon to talent L. and obviously just given the timing. There's a lot of speculation that this has something to do with it certainly possible but as of right now it doesn't seem like that's probably the case apart from this plane crash. All these incidents have taken place in Iraq the killing of Sulejmani these missile attacks last night. How does Iraq feel about this beef between Iran and the United States playing out on its soil? Not Great Iraq is coming up on two decades of war being fought on its soil from the Iraq. War are to the fight against Isis. And they're really caught in a tough place. Between two allies the Americans.

"Ballistic missiles perhaps seeing tonight that have maneuverable reentry vehicles so they can get control them after they fly so they could be very precise as to the tens of meters and that's new Iran that gives them all kinds of new cards to play. They didn't even a year. You know five years ago. It's quite dangerous Dichter. What is the power that Iran obviously there is you know there was an Iran Iraq war which a million people were killed on either side? I mean horrific war involving children in minefields how is Iran viewed now. And how does that play into. You know it's an attack on Iraqi soil. Well good question. I think in Iraq Iran is seen as this kind of the big the big neighbour who's never go away. He's always gonNA live next door and around has obviously been putting a lot of money. On these proxy forces there is political forces as well. Yeah they're they're deeply embedded in the Iraqi establishment and the Iraqi government every way and they live right next door and they make that very clear and if they need to exert leverage or pressure in all the way up to assassination. They can do it. And so when the Iraqis try to talk to the United States they have they say you know we gotta we gotta live with these guys next stories. Don't forget that they're right in the Middle Jobe. We're talking with Dexter before you joined us about the weak now. Have the Iraqi parliament saying that the wants wants to expel the. US forces Iraqi cabinet has to take that up. I it the leadership as well and how if the US actually you know a sick irony would be if the US did actually withdraw forces from Iraq under pressure. That's exactly what Iran has wanted in terms of Isis though What is the potential for Isis to come back as they did the last time? US forces pulled out. Well if you think about why we have troops groups in Iraq to begin with. It's right now. It's mostly because we want to control isis to go after the remaining pockets vices that still exists.

"Eighties under the mattresses on the floor tiles, all Iraq casualties from these remaining homemade mines arriving Iraq has seen wave after wave of violence since the US led invasion in two thousand and three and the remnants of war according fair and disquiet the world needs not take its I off the ball. You can argue to the cows come home about about the legitimacy of the invasion, but was absolutely clear. Is it the consequences of a still a mess from the guardian? I'm in direction today in focus after years of conflict. What does liberation really mean in Iraq? I mean, you're very conscious of continuing security threat. I mean, you still sense that it's a it's a divided and trouble place is just wondering whether it can be optimistic again. Peter bay Mont is a senior reporter at the guardian and has covered the conflict in Iraq since the beginning, and he was back in the country this week. So the last few days, I I've been reversing Faluji for the first time world since two thousand and four. Faluji is a city about an hour drive west of the capital back that. News from typically rookie city. I mean, it's very flat. It kind of runs into the desert. It's kind of a rundown place with this sort of industrial area of of little metal workshops and things like that new flows of mosques nitsa very religious place. It's sort of prides itself in its hospitality. But also says good reputations. Having been one of those places that quite a long time. It's been dangerous before on this. Visit what was the situation like when you were last there? The last time I was which was at the beginning of two thousand and four I think situation was guessing worse and worse. It was getting to be a place that was very difficult to visit. I mean, we run into some people who didn't wish us very well. So we left in in quite a hurry. And wish you L in what way? Oh, there were men with guns who wants to come and talk to us. And I mean, we were fortunate we we were able to leave. But it was it was quite a quite a frightening experience. It was just over ninety minutes. Gone. President Bush's deadline for Saddam Hussein to leave Iraq that US warships and planes launched. The opening salvo of operation Iraqi freedom special the headlines, the attack on Iraq has begun US forces fired cruise missiles at Baghdad just before door heated take us back two thousand three after US forces entered back that what happened in the period of followed the US led invasion. Faluji became more and more restive those an incident in which some demonstrators were shot by US forces. Iraqi blood spilt time in days, flew to dead and fourteen injured after US troops opened fire on anti-american demonstrators. Ironically, the shooting happened at a much protesting gates to the deaths of thirty rock is killed on Monday. It became one of those places. You know, the the insurgency initially started and took off from. I mean, I think I lost visited trip. Probably around a week. After the American contracts have been killed in the city and bodies hung from one of the bridges over the river. There. We're going to begin with Iraq this evening, four American civilians were killed there today, and sometimes happens the cameras were there for the gruesome aftermath, the four men were from that period.

"I did a lot of polls about religion i felt that the conflict had some side of it that was really connected to religion and sick terrorism it was just my general view how people thought about it they were just raised that way and it was really hard for them to to give it up and that's what we seeing right now in iraq people are forgotten the worst years of two thousand and six thousand seven and there's a return of sectarian killings and assassinations but do you believe that you can reason people out of it well we try all the time it's just at some point you really give up say thanks a lot no problem at all say i'd qasim blogs still at healing iraq when lee fadhel the doctor turned rockstar fixer finished his studies at nyu he had the very american experience of not finding job partly because of the economic crash and partly because his usual clients had less interest in the war so he applied for political asylum in the us anyway he says journalism died in iraq after the american forces left the thirties bared down hard on reporters there could be scurity to police the army friends of mine who still there quick journals because it's becoming really dangerous and not only dangerous it's useless because you can't really move around and do what you want to do as we're used to before when the streets where you know not controlled by anybody what you're saying is that you preferred as journalists the the chaos in the street.
