"lars" Discussed on WDRC
"Lars Larson. Welcome back to the Lars Larson show. It's a pleasure to be with you, and I'm glad to get to your phone calls and emails. I'll get to those in just a moment. I'll tell you about an odd little story in Washington, D C and I'll tell you a little bit of inside baseball. We would occasionally take the show back to Washington. See usually a couple of times a year often times for things like CPAC, which is no longer in Washington, D C or feet to the fire, which is put on by fair, the Federation for American Immigration Reform, and my Wife would tell me I'd say you want to come with me to to to the remote. We'll go back to D. C and she said. I hate DC And D. C is not exactly my favorite place, either. It is the seat of our federal government. And of that I am proud. But other than that there is not allowed to recommended. So consider this story from the Federalist. There's a bar in Washington D C. Lots of bars, but there's one in particular called Nellie's. It happens to be a gay bar, and Doug Schantz is the owner of Nelly's. I haven't talked to Doug Schantz. I don't know the man, but he posted a note last week on Facebook. Apologizing for an incident that happened a month before where one of his security guards who was on duty tried to break up a brawl that was happening on the second floor of that bar. Okay, That's the responsible thing to do. Well, guess what happens. Doug? Shawn's thought I'm going to set things right. In the In the incident, a guard yanked a woman who was involved in the fight by the arm yanked her down some stairs and toward an exit. The woman 22 year old Kesha Young, Hu Shan said was treated inappropriately unsafely and disrespectfully. He said the security contractor had been fired over the incident. We apologize to her for how she was treated, he said. A further committed to mandatory inclusion training re education for all bar staff. This is all from the federalist and said he had named a local Latino transgender person as a brand new manager and director of community engagement. So Here's a business owned by a man who says I'm going to set this right? I'm going to do all the right things, so he reaches out to an organization known as an advocacy group. Lot of these are scams, collective action for safe spaces that Shantz reached out to for bar staff sensitivity courses. You know what they did? They turned around and said no. Because we don't think you're asking for the help in good faith, but you're only trying to do damage control. They said as of July, 16th demands issued by D. C. Organizers have not been met, including an apology to Kesha Young. Nor was Nellie's management, engaging the organization issuing the demands the demands by the way they wanted the bar to give reparations to the black, queer and trans community and that the bar stays shut down until all demands were met. Organizers. Also one of the owner of the bar, Doug shines. To subject themselves to a humiliating public listening session. Where, in no doubt as the federals points out, protesters would take turns screaming at them and demanding they apologize for being white. Now in China. They used to call that a struggle session in America. We call it listening. As the federals points out, it should be noted the entire ordeal traces back to a physical conflict that did not involve a single white person. The security guard to put his hands on young as she was raining blows on top of another man's head is also black. The noisy protests in front of Nelly's continue and now local government body. No doubt responding to the pressure has determined the bar should probably lose its liquor license and his license to operate. Now, this is a bar owner. Had something bad happen within his bar. He fired the person who did the bad thing. He's taking corrective action. He's done all these things. And what do they say? No. We're going to make demands, and you have to meet all the demands and we get to scream and yell at you otherwise. We're going to shut your place down. This is America right now to your calls. Now let's go to Darren and Wyoming. Hey, Darren. Welcome to the Lawrence Larson. Joe, what's on your mind tonight? Oh, hey, I really appreciate you. You're a true patriot. Thank you. I had a comment on the On Biden's gun control. I I hear a lot of conservatives, uh, try to Make some middle ground and say we believe in reasonable regulation for firearms. You know if you have a felony, or if you have a violent crime on your background and yeah, you should not be able to own guns. I actually find this an interesting argument or you know what? My question to you is. Let's pretend we have a man who stole something. And when he was 18 years old, he has a felony. Okay, And now he's 40 years old, and he has three kids, and he's fully rehabilitated. Is that not the definition of what we say in the justice system that they're rehabilitated. They've paid their debt to society. They should be able to own guns. I think, even if they do have a felony record because You know, like, what are we talking about, Like like he's going to be of violent criminal. The rest of his life may be crazy, Everybody. Well, hold on. Can I try a couple of things? I'll try a couple of things because I think this this series issued to deal with One. You can go and seek to have your record expunged depending on what it is. You did. There's some crimes you cannot expunge. And usually it depends on what the state laws say in the state where you live. Since we have 50 laboratories, bureaucracy. You want to get that? So what? So what? Let me okay. Let me try it on you This way. You say he's 40. He's had 20 years. He's been law abiding tax paying well behaved citizens by his account, right? Should we expect him to say I need to go and get this expunge? Yes, there's some work involved. There's work involved in almost every part of life. You get a driver's license. There's work. There's work in a test and qualifications you have to pass. And you say, But it's 20 years later, Darren, Um if somebody was convicted of stealing from a business And you own the business. Would you say Yeah, but that was 10 years ago. I'll hire you to my business. You might be a bit suspicious of that new employee, right? That's okay. That's okay. I totally get your point. And that's really good. Critical thinking large. I'd appreciate trying. I try to do my best on that so much power to bureaucracies were getting so much power. But hold on Darren Darren. It's not a bureaucracy if you want to go to the Wyoming Legislature. Talk to your member of the Legislature, your senator and your two reps and say, I'd like to get the law changed that and you can do it in a number of ways you can say let's make a simple process. For clearing your name, and actually, I've talked to prosecutors about how people go through this. I've never been convicted of a crime never been charged with a crime, So it's never been a personal issue for me, but they actually say it is. It is relatively simple. But if you want to make it more simple, I'd be happy if you could go to the Wyoming Legislature and say when a certain number of years have gone by, If it's not, would we say nonviolent felonies only or would we include violent felonies as well?.

That Time I Realized My Boob Was Out
"That time i realized my boob was out. Let's just say it was awkward for everyone involved. There are specific moments in life. That will regrettably stay with a person forever. Whether or not you'd like to believe that these moments shape you somehow into the person you are meant to be is still up for debate. All i know is that one one finds their boob out in front of a total stranger. They must make the most of the situation. I was frantically cleaning my house back in a time when i still needed to clean my house because i was still allowed to have guests come over for visits. It was a smoldering hot summer day in central alberta which made my house temperature close to thirty above as i did not have an air conditioner at the time full disclosure.

Supercomputers and Severe Weather Modeling with Dr. Leigh Orf
"Lot of the visuals and products that you produce are cutting edge. There are things that i have never seen before until they see what you've done do you ever feel like you're waiting for the technology to catch up so that you can actually make what you wanna make. Yes that's a very interesting point and it was the case for awhile The bluewater supercomputer. That was the recent Recently retired at least for general science supercomputer at ncsa university of illinois. Was the game. Changer for me Through a collaboration with robert wilhelmsen. One of the pioneers of cloud modeling. I gained access to that machine in the two thousand. Ten's and i sort of made it my mission to To run george. Brian and end car has seen him one model on the supercomputer and also to do I've always been interested in high resolution trying to resolve things that i know that A lot of our models aren't doing just because you know it's hard it really is hard you can't just take a code and throw it on a supercomputer and it runs efficiently and creates lots of wonderful stuff so i gained access to the blue lars machine and at that point once i had some really good results. I realized that this is it. This is really an i. Now have the technology. I need but i did need to do a lot of work to manage data and manage the data at the model produced it this day and age right now. I would say that. I'm feeling pretty good. I've got simulation data. I've got tons of data. I just need time to analyze it and you know other people to analyze it with me. And that's the biggest challenge for me right now. I've gotten to the point where i've succeeded in. My goal is stimulating certain storms. And we're gonna continue to try different environments but the technology is is doing all right. I think that it's just a matter of learning how to harness it right and you know. Gps user now very common in programming. Those nine trivial exercise for those of us who used to writing fortran and c code well. C. plus plus. Now khuda all that stuff. I've ever really sharp grad student doing some work with me who's khuda c. Plus plus program who's utilizing. Gps trajectory analysis from my history file data. So we're yeah. We're always trying to push the frontier. There it's not like something we set out to do is just that. Hey i have this problem. I want solve. And we need novel techniques to solve these problems because of the amount of data because of the fidelity because of the high resolution. Because of the fact that i'm saving data as frequently as the model time. Step because i can do that now. Using data compression and other things like that

The passports is the way The Washington Post is reporting that are expected to be free and available through applications for smartphones, which could display a scannable code similar to an airline boarding pass. Americans without smartphone access should be able to print out their passports. Biden's team has apparently committed to the vaccine passports, though they refused to talk to the media on the subject. That shouldn't surprise you. Biden, who promised to be transparent, hasn't been very transparent. It all they apparently do not like branding them as passports, but instead would like to see him cold.

Big Cameras. Big, Big Cameras And more
"Arguable as we've discussed here many in time. If a flagship body is needed anymore in today's world you know the ones. I'm talking about the behemoths. Usually with integrated grabs most of the time often seen in the hands of photo journalists sports photographers and rich guys. Who think it'll somehow make their photos better which it won't crazy expensive bodies that few people can even afford and fewer people really need these bodies used to be aspirational. They are the ones you wish you had. But then you learn that as cool as they are. They're hard to justify it unless you know that you're gonna make that money back or like. I said you're ridiculously rich. You've gotta be able to justify that great expense back in the day. When i dropped sixty five hundred bucks on our brand spanking new nikon d for us. That was an ultra moment. I actually made a face but at the time it made sense to get one now it would just be a luxury a camera. That wouldn't help me do anything better right now. A camera man for somebody knocking around iraq or afghanistan covering crazy wars and stuff. I'm not doing that so i don't need. A body like that. Described by nikon is quote an unprecedented imaging experience and quote the company z. Nine full frame mirrorless beast which is currently under development features. A brand new full frame affects seamus censor a new processor and eight k video video. Not historically being. The company's strong suit might add. We'll see how that all shakes out. This body isn't a reality at just in development but the company wants the world to know right now that it is coming and as you can tell. I'm not terribly excited about it. Sure they're cool but very few people really need this. That and i just don't see it as the best direction for a camera company to go in anymore especially if they're already struggling with sales like nikon is so far all we've seen as a photo. The z nine from the front along on a statement from the company saying that it will bring together. Nikon's quote groundbreaking technologies to deliver the best still and video performance in nikon history. I'm quote the company is also saying that. The z nine. As we can see in the released photo we'll have an integrated grab and this body. Quote embodies ultimate usability as tool offering users and unprecedented imaging experience from capture to workflow exceeding that of previous digital last are and murless cameras and quote. So for those still in denial. The company itself is telling us that they feel this camera. The z nine will bast every body that they've ever made that includes ds lars as well as merely us. You just don't make a statement like that unless it's true or you get completely excoriated by people. So the z nine had better. Live up to the hype. Now nikon rumors reports that this has been tested with both forty five as well as sixty megapixel sensors perhaps in trying to find that sweet spot of resolution versus low light ability and that other features include being able to shoot stills at twenty frames per second with a blackout free. evf also knows electronic viewfinder a sixteen bit robson a brand new menu system. Thank you. It was needed improved noise levels and better dynamic range and you know what all that sounds. Reasonable you know. These bodies are meant primarily for photo journalist. Sports sports shooters and the like and it's a happy balance of speed resolution and functionality. They also say that. The camera will be tested at the tokyo olympics. This summer. which you'll recall was postponed year due to covid nineteen and it's expected to be released sometime in the fall of two thousand twenty. One know people have largely moved on from the thinking that they need the flagship body even knowing they're probably never gonna own it because it's six thousand sixty five hundred bucks or so not to mention that these smaller bodies that have been out for years. Now we're talking. Mirrorless bodies are let's desired so thanks to well that being the only option amir us for so long small bodies that trained us into thinking that bigger is not necessarily better and it's up to these companies to decide whether or not this is where they want to spend their time their money no research and development time and costs and you that this point here in twenty twenty one. It's a luxury that they can no longer afford.
"lars" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"So chuck just recap lars mytalk has fled is a good way to put it the airport leaving behind in the doctor's office all of his stuff including his wallet phone in passport now is that verified. I saw that basically everywhere including his own speculating that she saw him checking his. Yeah i get very confusing. But i saw the sun. Which i realize it's not the most credible source but sadly it is one of the most credible sources when it comes to researching this case I saw on a yale article. It's it's basically everywhere that his wallet passport and phone were left behind. I i mean that's a really good point like we're totally were lost in the sunflower field as far as that stuff concerns. We don't know we've got to get our hands on the police report Even that i read when when lars his mom hired bulgarian lawyer as a investigator They got weird conflicting information about you. Know what was found with him or not or what was was left behind by him or not. So even his mom probably couldn't say for certain. What was there. Yeah i get the picture that it was a frustrating experience working with the bulgarian police Seems like germany got involved with interpol But they had some frustrations as well There's there's some speculation that they intentionally kind of Kept this story on the down low. Because they didn't want it to affect tourism. Yeah i can see that other people say that well maybe not that but it just wasn't widely known it was some german kid It wasn't all over the newspapers and so people you know they didn't necessarily even know what was going on if they saw this flyer or they've maybe not maybe they didn't even run it on the evening news. Yeah and so like if it was three weeks four weeks after the disappearance that like news started to really spread or maybe news never really spread if you were a driver and you gave a kid a ride on the a two highway outside of the airport. you might not have ever put two and two together or If you saw some kid running through a field into the woods you might not have ever heard of lars. Talk either so There's it's possible. There's people out there with information who just aren't aren't don't not to cough it up. Although that's probably exceedingly unlikely these days because of the exposure that the stories gotten yet one interesting tidbit is that they did find that those five hundred euros were untouched in his accounting And i don't think we mentioned. I think some people speculate the fact that it was five hundred euros on the nose and that it was western union and he had never used it meant that he was being told by somebody to get five hundred euros wired via this way but again that's just internet speculation. Y also saw that it was his mom's decision just asked her to him some money. He had decided that that That was according to that documentarian. Who knows we really need to get. Sandra montauk on here dude. One of the cool things that happened through this through his mother investigating this is various. Leads came in over the years. Like hey there's this guy that speaks german he could be lars she would go. Check it out. This other guy Over the years she has ended up finding fifteen german ex patriots in bulgaria Somewhere addict somewhere. Mentally ill Some were actually reunited with her family. Some didn't want to be reunited but She found all these people so like every time that happened. It gave her hope that even though the chances you know with a case like this is if you don't find this person within the first few days or the first week it's like very slim no chance all of these. Things gave her hope that she if she just kept at it the she might eventually find her son. Yeah i was really surprised to see that There was a statin here. That said that something like only three percent of missing persons cases aren't resolved within the first year in germany and not even true but among german citizens. Yeah yeah i. I thought it would be a lot higher than that. But that's that's actually not bad. As far as i can tell. Yeah so yeah one of those people by the way Who was found that was thought to be. There's a whole thing where people are following this case at any time Something ends up on the internet Ends up being passed along to sondra mma tunc who will basically post on her instagram. Like hey this was sent from this town. Can somebody go see if they can find this homeless guy and give me more pictures of them so we can figure out if it's lars like she does this kind of frequently. There was one guy turned up in brazil who looks a lot like lars but disheveled with the beard and his hair kind of crazy And that turned out to be a different man Who was missing from british columbia named anton topa who was reunited with his family after five years and they think that he hitchhike hitch hiked and walked from british columbia down to brazil And then kind of lived around Rio rio on his own for a while During a mental break man So some of the theories over the years that have been formed The one that seems the most obvious to me is that along with the ear injury. There was some sort of a head injury. Maybe a concussion left untreated. That led to erratic behavior and paranoia. Maybe and that you know once he had laughed and had no money. No phone no passport. he sort of was just sort of perhaps lost his memory in lost in bulgaria instill lost in bulgaria. Yeah that's entirely possible. Especially if it was a head injury that was getting worse and worse by the hour that could definitely explain the erratic behavior of leaving his stuff in running through the airport in jumping the fence into a sunflower field. Because if you think about it everything up to that point you can explain by him being intimidated in a hotel. He didn't feel comfortable in By some guys who aim to rob him in even if those guys didn't aim to rob him just him thinking that they were going to rob him explains everything else up to that. Point the thing that makes it inexplicable. As far as i'm concerned is him leaving the airport. The way they did in potentially leaving everything behind that throws everything out the window and actually makes the idea of a traumatic brain injury. A lot more Possible in my mind. The problem is that if that's what happened to it's really possible that he's up there you know out in the woods still in just hasn't been found in his is dead probably by now. Yes i suppose he could have just wandered into a town and assimilated while his mom apparently does believe that he's still out there of which is why she tries to shake down every lead. She can but things that he does have memory loss in that. He's still out there just in his never contacted her Another theory is that you know. Maybe everything he said is true. Maybe there were men following him. Maybe it had something to do with that fight in these guys that may or may not have been hired to beat him up Apparently the Human trafficking in bulgaria is a problem. And maybe you know a young handsome fit man mike. Lars could have been a target for human trafficking and that he really like had every right to be anxious and nervous because otherwise he seemed like he was okay It's all very confusing and frustrating. I can't imagine what.

"And on the website at Lars Larsen dot com if you want to send me emails talk at Lars Larsen dot com works very well now I always promise you that I'll admit if I have a dog in the fight I've been a gun enthusiast since I was a little kid back when my dad gave me my first guns course these days you can't give kids guns anymore because of the laws but we all know that their fathers and grandfathers and grandmothers and mothers out there who've given a a pistol or a rifle to a son or daughter before the legal age but of course the gun officially belongs to mom dad I do own some cold rifles and I own some cold coastal so I definitely have a dog in the fight and Jim rows and Berger joins me now whose latest book is revolver Sam cold and the six shooter that changed America Mr Osborne welcome to the program great to be here lies thanks ravenous I knew a bit of the history of the cold and the cold revolver especially the you know the original colt revolver I'd love to have the kind of money to own one of the originals that are still out there from the original manufacturing but you wrote this book because this change more than just firearms in the United States it the changes that it wrought in American manufacturing went far beyond that didn't they did I mean the the call revolver changed American to really fundamental ways one was how he impact it had on opening the west which we can talk about the other which referred to is the incredible impact in manufacturing of it had on industrialization Cole was one of the pioneers in uniform interchangeable parts I mean that's something we all take for granted now which is if something breaks in the refrigerator you just remove that piece and put in an identical piece and it looks as good as new you know same thing with your car that wasn't true back in the early nineteenth century everything was singular unique and this is a big problem with guns because if you have to send the whole must get back to get the of the whole thing thanks to something grow so interchangeable parts for a big movement in the arms industry and particularly when it came to Sam call he made some enormously sad and there's an changed not only industrialization in this country but all around the world well since we started with the manufacturing end of it tell me this what background did he have that brought him to this point where he would create this iconic gun and create the idea of interchangeable parts where you could make a thousand of apart and make a thousand guns and you knew that you could you could easily replace those parts what was his background okay what I think about Cole himself that you know is he clearly had a great mechanical gifted ingenuity drive and all these things but I think the simplest explanation one of them is that he grew up in Hartford Connecticut and the you probably know that area up and down the Connecticut River there the Connecticut River valley known as gun valley your gun alley this Springfield armory was in Springfield Massachusetts your heart for New York Middletown Connecticut so he grew up that's where most of the guns in the country were made and going back to the Springfield armory even before Cole came along they were trying to develop interchangeable parts and the U. S. government ordnance department was driving this effort they didn't get too far but so he you know he knew about it and then he goes off at the age of sixteen and Invensys gun and he immediately realizes that can make it to make something of it he needs to machine manufacturing and he starts getting interested in interchangeable parts at a very young age you know touring around New England the Connecticut River valley trying to learn the best cutting H. catch tech leaks you know circa nineteen thirty six eighteen thirty six I'm talking to Jim rows and Berger who's the author of revolver same cold on the six shooter that changed America I guess from today's perspective might be tough for people to imagine why it was hard to to get to interchangeable parts because you'd almost think if I if I make a part a certain way exactly the same today I can knock out thousands in in today's world even millions of something at a very low cost but and in fact it's almost you you'll pay more money if you said I want something handmade you know like I wanted it all right it's crafted by guns Smith and I want him to make it from the word go it may fit a particular cartridge but I want this gun made by hand you're going to pay through the nose for something like that except the back then they found it hard to make parts were they were close enough together in tolerance that that they might be interchangeable what what was the difficulty yeah I mean you could hand naked gun using gauges so that you can get the tolerance is pretty close but he did it a lot better than humans did and also they get a lot more cheaply so the prices of guns could go down that's why you know you say if you get something handcrafted it costs more money it takes a lot more time you know when it went cold first had his guns made by a guy named John Pearson by hand it took two weeks to make them he was making hundreds a day in his armoury you know a few decades later actually seems could do it was called the American system because it developed in America developed in the armories the United States and that and it was really Sam Cole who introduced it to the rest of the world starting with England where he went in the eighteen fifties and said Hey you know this hand making guns I have his ridiculous try machinery it makes things a lot better you know you get to college is closer and you can make them more cheaply well and in fact Mister oz a burger this is in the early eighteen hundreds and we always credit you know but Henry Ford with division of labor in some of those ideas but there must been some of that in make because if the previous system was one man who works on one gun until he's done and then hands it off to be sold to the customer and then starts on the next one under machine manufacture these parts would you have one guy who's making the revolver and somebody else is crafting the barrel and somebody else is crafting the trigger assembly and all that absolutely Henry Ford thought he invented the assembly line but that's probably because you never read any history the assembly line goes way back in fact work begins is he lives with me now we all know you live when you can score on Jan enter the cotton gin thank you why would you spend most of his life trying to make guns for the government and he was the one who first said I'm going to may first make machines to make the guns would need never really got to conduct those machines he but he had the idea to do it and then others followed along again in Simeon north in Connecticut probably was the first to really use assembly line techniques by the time it got to cold you had very good machines used in an assembly like mine like way so they could produce guns very fast I mean this is one reason why you know when it came to the civil war the north perfectly the cold armory could churn out guns really fast they had the machines to do it and they had the techniques to to distribute the parts and then bring them together at the end of the assembly line mistrust burger before we leave that all together that will have time to talk about Samuel cold who's a very colorful figure but when we talk about machines today their CNC machines their computer controlled and all that when we talk about machines in the early eighteen hundreds around eighteen thirty six when the cold was first a patented what kind of machines are we talking about just drill presses and maybe primitive blades yeah exactly it's snowing in Laveen and so used to a lot of hands on operation but what you can do you know using a a template you can recreate exactly the same form again and again and again and again and get it exactly right so that's really the the huge step forward in manufacturing sell it you know it it it was a lot more difficult than it is now a lot of improvements obviously but it all began hi in the eighteen twenties eighteen thirties in the armories the book is called revolver Sam cold and.

"Nine or ten weeks or so of by people who say Lars you're putting out numbers to scare us now I put out numbers because I believe they help describe the world did they actually define the world now I think the world is more than just numbers and I would never say that numbers alone describe everything but they do give you an idea of where things are going right now as of tonight globally nine hundred and thirty two thousand people are infected with the China virus and nearly fifty thousand people have died and that's assuming you believe the numbers that China has given out publicly and I told you earlier tonight there's a brand new report by Bloomberg it says that a confidential secret report that's been presented to the White House suggests that China not only has been lying about the China virus numbers but that they have been doing it intentionally and that they are still lying about it tonight so when you see that number of nine hundred and thirty two thousand people worldwide out of seven and a half billion of us infected I understand it may be much higher depending on how much China lied and how much they're still line here in the United States it is depressing to suggest you but two hundred and eleven thousand four hundred eight Americans have been infected with the China virus and almost five thousand Americans have died and you say that's a lot it's especially a lot if you consider the history and where we have come from with the two hundred thousand people infected China virus cases worldwide and let me just run this down for you draw a picture in your head on the first of March the number of China virus cases eighty nine in the United States eighty nine on the first of March by a week later five sixty four a week after that thirty five hundred and a week after that thirty four thousand and then of course tonight's number in the United States more than two hundred thousand cases in the United States and I've also heard those people have suggested that while the president acted slowly on this or his administration did I don't believe that's true either January sixth the CDC issues a travel notice for Wuhan China January seventh the CDC establishes an incident management system for corona virus that was January seventh January eighth the CDC issued an advisory to every state and local health department in America so those politicians were telling us we didn't know about this until February or March they most certainly did and on January eleventh the CDC issued a level one travel health notice for Wuhan China the earliest interview I can find on this program I was certainly talking about the disease and its outbreak in Wuhan China the first time we talked to Dr Henry Miller about it that was on the fourteenth of January and we're now looking at April fools day and by the way how were the Democrats responding last month in the month sorry too much in February February the twenty fourth Nancy Pelosi went to Chinatown in San Francisco and she encouraged other people just come out and live their lives like nothing else is going on and on March the second less than a month ago mayor bill de Blasio of New York City encouraged new Yorkers to get out and see a Broadway show so I want you to be aware of what was going on that is R.

"And better for America let's go first to Sean in Nevada Hey Sean welcome to the Lars Larson show on first amendment Friday night what's on your mind thank you Lars been awhile since I talked to you you have a caller couple go name mark he was talking about the sanctuary city issue and the president bitten the permission of the court to withhold the money yeah I think a little bit of that that was gone wrong there's something in our pop culture that we're not aware of all the anti commandeering doctrine and this was held up by the Supreme Court in nineteen ninety seven in a case called Printz versus United States and it's actually it says that state and municipalities cannot be required to assist the federal government even if funding is provided now I'll tell you I'm against the concept of illegal aliens in sanctuary cities but we also offer a hold the constitution and say that while we want them to help us we want to give them money to help us the people calling these are no longer required to help us but that is different from the fact that they cannot ignore here are you probably remember in February of twenty eighteen Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf announced that there was going to be a raid and that actually did heard it interfered with the federal government action so that can't happen so I think that the president is doing exactly what mark said enforcing the death is duty bound to enforce the constitution and the laws and he's doing that by withholding money and you can see it's going to get a reaction well I I agree with you but remember it actually looked up I had heard of it before but I was fuzzy on it the anti commandeering doctrine says the federal government cannot require states to adopt federal law they cannot require states to enforce federal law but outside of the court rulings the doctrine has no basis in constitutional law it's not in the text of the constitution it's something invented by the courts but be that as it may the federal government is not asking California or or any other state to enforce federal law or to adopt federal law what they're saying is will you just tell us you have somebody in custody who appears to be in the country illegally yeah I guess you could say anything that the state does if they build a road and federal law enforcement agents drive down the road then the state of California has has assisted though that but they're not being asked to enforce law or adopt the law they're just being asked to give information to the federal government and then the federal government at which already has the law on the books and and the federal government which is planned is planning to enforce the law is able to enforce it I mean I I I'm not sure how much the anti commandeering doctrine really applies in this case because if Donald Trump said I want California to adopt a a law on immigration first of all he couldn't do it because the constitution puts all the authority for immigration enforcement in the federal government and not at all in the state governments and there's there's some sound reasoning behind that I mean imagine if California could say we are going to let you emigrate from some other country France to California and once you're here you can go anywhere in America we have fifty different states all enforcing their own immigration laws and that would never work it has to be a federal role for the government so but but if all the government is saying is tell us when you have somebody in custody we will come and enforce the law ourselves if the states are trying to use the anti commandeering doctrine as an excuse for not even giving information to the federal government I mean there's nothing really it says the state of California has to assist any other state and yet let's say somebody wanted for murder in California is arrested in Florida and the Florida police would look on the wants and warrants list and say Hey this guy's wanted in California they sent an email or make a phone call to California say we got your guy in custody here if you want to fly out we can extradite him and there's a process for that I don't think any state or any city would fail to help out another state in catching a wanted fugitive so it's a little weird for cities and states to say we're willing to help every other state in force laws in that state so this is California or Florida helping Californian for so long but then turn around and refused to do it when the federal government is involved that one is never made sense to me but then again you know sanctuary status doesn't make sense to me either coming up in just a moment Robert Muller has been praised as a straight arrow and an honorable attorney by the left but a new accusation from one of the people he interviewed says he may not be as honorable as that's coming up next and you're listening to the Lars Larson show at quicken loans are seventeen thousand team members know that home is so much.

"Lars Larsen sure to be with you on a conspiracy Thursday night and what better night to be talking to the acting deputy secretary of homeland security Ken Cuccinelli I hope we keep your cell phone connection but miss sector it let me ask you about one oddball case and this was the case of this comedian who I guess was on the western dam which finally found a port they could tie up in income to Cambodia and they had taken hundreds of people off the ship and put him in a in a hotel and they said we're gonna test you were gonna quarantine yet and that's that and the guy because literally he said he had a gig in the United States he sneaked away from the hotel bought himself an EMR its air ticket an upgraded one so that he would die guess Ralph suspicion because he said he'd heard about people getting turned away from the bargain basement air carriers from Asia and he flew back it was a three hop flight and there's no indication that he told the airline or anyone else by the way I've been exposed now he doesn't have it as far as we know he hasn't tested positive but he was exposing who's being quarantine for region a reason are we you know what are we going to do with people who decide to take that kind of action and sneak around the quarantines because their life is being interrupted by this and they say I'm not sick I'm just gonna hop on a plane with a bunch of unsuspecting fellow passengers and come back to the United States and when he got to Seattle he said he walked up to customs and customs looked at him and said Mister king and he said yep and they said were you on the western dam and he said yep and he told he told customs those and they said well were you ever in mainland China no do you did did you test positive for corona no and they said okay you're free to go and they let him into the country so I appreciate the quarantining appreciate the screening but it sounds like some of the rules and some of the procedures are allowing people like him who sneaked away from quarantine to just sneak back into the United States and I worry about the disease getting in that way coronavirus well there when we take our containment measures we know that we can't completely contain the virus and nor can we completely keep out what we're doing with our containment efforts is to try to buy time to shrink the number of cases in the country and to be better prepared as we go along when he showed up at Seattle he was probably not only got cornered by customs border protection but there was a secondary medical screening going on there as well and so if he was able to walk away was because he was not symptomatic he wasn't showing symptoms of the virus right it and but there is to your point nothing in his passport you don't get a passport stamp with a cruise ship name on it so if you didn't if you didn't go to China and by the way the state department issued a travel advisory today to people warning them about cruise ships in the Asia area end any cruise ships in the world because people can fly from China to fill in the blank.

"Welcome back to Lars Larsen show it's a pleasure to be with you I kind of ask you the question a little bit earlier today about whether or not people who are incapacitated by mental illness should have treatment forced on them in some ways it's very similar to the question about drug abuse and drug addicts and whether or not there should be a way to press them into treatment when they don't go on their own well one of the other problems of people living on the streets is people who are simply incapaz by bank capacity by mental illness if you walk down the street to most of the bigger cities in America you will encounter people who are talking to the air they're talking to themselves at their behaving in an abhorrent way and they live on the streets and day in many cases they are addicted to drugs they're using drugs both booze and illegal drugs and so the question's been what we do about it well the country is kind of approach the problem the same way everywhere with the same results that is it doesn't work well there's a bill in the state of Washington that's before their legislature which is in session right now and it proposes something very simple it says if you are incapacitated by mental illness and you have had at least five D. tensions that is you been picked up by the cops and either taken to a hospital taken to a mental hospital for a temporary hold or you've been held in jail five detentions in twelve months that the option would be opened up by this new law to let a judge put you into what's called a conservatorship a guardianship so that they watch out for your rights now it's funny the people who are opposing this some of them the National Alliance on mental illness Naomi is testifying in opposition to the bill because of civil rights the fact is some of the people in favor of this bill our people have lost family members to suicide to drug addiction to living on the street and they've said these people are family members in some cases it's a son or a daughter will end up going through the system they'll be picked up by the police because their behavior gets to a certain obnoxious level they may actually try to hurt somebody or try to hurt themselves and then they will be into the system for a day or two or three in California I think they can actually hold you for up to ten days and then they'll simply be cut loose again to go right back to the streets knowing to a fairly certain extent that the person put back on the streets is just as mentally ill and they really aren't capable of caring for themselves and that seems crazy so if they allowed a judge to say we've investigated this person is mentally ill they're incapacitated by their mental illness they cannot care for themselves and they keep getting process through the system if you started with the cases where there are five detentions in a twelve month period you're getting picked up by the cops every couple of months and then temporarily held somewhere but no real fixed your problem they get appointed conservator and say you have to go into mental health care the idea seems attractive to me not because I want to take away people's civil rights but if you say if we leave them on the streets what's the most likely result one is they're gonna hurt somebody maybe kill somebody and then they'll go to prison and their mental illness will hobby address there very well or two they're gonna hurt or killed himself and that's a bad result as well would it be and and this is where you have to carefully thread that needle of saying how far would do are we willing to go to take somebody's civil rights if the consequence of not temporarily interrupting their civil rights saves their life or save somebody else's life is that a reasonable proposition I think it is it's been introduced by states senator I think is the kind of thing that could work almost anywhere in America I think it's S. as sensible idea unfortunately I have a feeling that they're gonna be forces out there they're going to fight the idea they'll say why you're interrupting somebody's civil right well as far as I'm concerned the most single is set to sing at the most important single civil right did you have is the right to be alive end of leaving you on the streets leaving you without any mental health treatment even if they have to be treated against their will is going to save your life I think it's worth interrupting somebody's civil rights temporarily to be able to get them back to a point where they're not going to end up dead and they're not going to.

"Well versed in in the Friday on the Lars Larsen show Lars pushing the driver's seat you talk about what you want to talk about government is the problem is off limits we American call eight six six eight eight six six no first amendment Friday with Lars Larsen welcome back to Lars Larsen show it's a pleasure to be with you I'm glad to get to your phone calls and emails a bit later and I always tell you that I will disclose if I have a dog in the fight if I'm involved in particular company I'm not involved in this company that I'm about to talk to the CEO of but I am I I I feel as though I had a disclosed to you I have no problem with the video cameras in public and if you want to put video cameras in your own inside your own home that's up to you but out in public doorbell cameras cameras on the outside of your house cameras in neighborhoods as the bridge called CCTV I'm a fan of all that because I think it forces the criminals to go and do their crimes elsewhere and it helps to catch them as well so I'm when I read about this story called flock safety that's the name of the company flock safety out of Georgia that I thought this is a great idea and it's exactly where I thought the technology might take us but I think it's a matter of amazing that flock safety has formed as a company in the the general idea I'm gonna get it from your Langley was CEO and he joins me now but the first thing I saw was a daily dead fish wrapper in this case the Seattle times doing a story in which they said all these private security cameras and of course they're going to be used in a way that discriminates against the poor and against people of color and I thought I knew just like I can predict that the technology might have gone to this place I can also predict that most of the daily dead fish trappers would have that take not that it would catch criminals on make people safer not just an expensive neighborhoods but poor neighborhoods as well but that it would work especially against certain groups well Garrett Langley joins you now C. E. O. of flocks safety welcome to the program thank you for having me so tell me this I want you to describe what your company does and then let's talk about the some of the specific places this is getting is because people might be surprised when they think well of course he's cameras and all this technology they'll be the in the high dollar neighborhoods but what about the poor neighborhoods we're going to get to that you might just be surprised bye bye what what you hear from this interview Mister Langly what does flock safety due for a neighborhood and how yeah so I started the company just about to have years ago and I'm just a regular guy the difference is I have another degree in.

"Lars Larsen show welcome back to Lars Larsen Joe pleasure to be with you on a first amendment Friday night before I go to your calls let me mention something we mention illegal aliens and the criminal activities they're involved in this country especially when they're involved in violent incidents like this a couple of weeks ago a man was taking his son to a basketball game this was a university of Washington Huskies game he was stabbed in the back at a light rail station there but a bunch of incidents involving public transportation in the city of Seattle this one Mary Giovanni Acevedo Sanchez an illegal alien who could have been deported numerous times because he has a criminal record he is in fact a Mexican citizen he's in the United States illegally he has an extensive criminal history according to ice and yet Seattle's sanctuary city policies mean that he has not been removed from the country when he could have been removed from the country I want you to consider what you would think if one night god forbid you found that a family member of yours had been stabbed in the back at a public place by a person who could have been removed from your community by ice and wasn't because the folks who run your city any of the sanctuary cities in America simply say well we have to protect our illegal alien friends and not remove them as the law specifies here calls on this first amendment Friday drinks on the line a Drake welcome to the Lars Larsen show what's on your mind tonight. well are there is one area that it's refreshing hi I usually don't listen to the news but every not from work I was in tears Jill thank you it's great to have somebody who just tells it like it is. the reason I called in is other listening for last week about this whole job thing and. trump to me is but let me ask you a question you're the one that you see out the questions it's front on Friday. a white. it is the closest thing to an independent president we've ever had true eight. how do we go about our understood normal everyday taxpayer I barely make fifty thousand dollars a year I go to work every day how do we go about ever getting somebody like trump I mean because it does that they'll probably never be another one like in the Democrats and the Republicans probably will make sure that does not happen how do we ever get somebody who can run for president that actually cares about the people somebody who will put alligators in the pit at the wall here's what so all of that I'll bet your work would you would you mind telling me what you do for a living. I work for mandir construction I swing a hammer for live and I. once you either the time I get it but Drake tell me this do you ever have a young guy or gal on the work site whose job is clean up you know when you're in their swing a hammer doing framing work but that you hire a young guy are young gal you say you want to learn to be a carpenter your first job is clean up you clean up the work site you know to keep it you know safe and also to make it look good for the client and that young man or woman says I'm gonna learn this trade but I'm gonna start from the bottom up I think we have to do the same thing if we want politicians we if we want and we really don't want politicians we want people who actually accomplish something in their life and then they decided some point I want to be a member of Congress I want to be at the state legislature I want to be a governor I might run for president some day you have to start by developing a whole good a core of of young men and women who go out and they accomplish something going started business go out and work at a trade or profession and accomplish something and then run for office what America's been gravitating toward we used to have people in public office Herbert Hoover was president he won out he was a mining engineer he worked all over the world he did make a lot of money eventually because he came up with some new ways of of of extracting valuable stuff for mill from mine tailings and and he had some patents and he'd actually done something when he then ran for president today most of the people that might be a candidate for office Kamal Harris has been in politics basically her whole life she had a you know a a romance with a married man Willie brown in California jumpstart her career but almost everybody else bento a roar Peter to judge all these jokers haven't done anything in the private sector and and then they go all right and no so if you said we would prefer to have a president who's actually done something if we used. it asking as voters when you go to a town hall for somebody running for Congress and you say what have you done with your life before now and they say well I've been a lawyer but I've been involved in politics since I was eighteen years old that's probably not the person you want if if they say instead well I went out I I I I left school I started a business I employed people I signed the front of a paycheck Barack Obama had never done that still hasn't done that night ology Hillary Clinton had never actually me she was a lawyer but you learn how to cheat the commodities market early on and she was basically the governor's wife in Arkansas on the attorney general's wife so I want people who've actually gone out and done something and accomplish something doesn't have to be like trump doesn't have be hotels and casinos and all that and I also want somebody who's had failure a lot of the media hated trump because and they want and they will be out there this large go ahead should I go to the border of Paul and I agree that use lame or lamer yeah that makes sense what Uncle Sam yes yes and you know I mean I I don't get the choice because the Democrats and the Republicans double the money like a look at Ross Perot yet no can't even have money because he didn't use Democrat or Republican he had no chance well but he he made a difference unfortunately if it got Bill Clinton but at least you had people and it would be nice to get people of substance to accomplish something in their life and then you don't George Washington wanted to be a farmer you know he was involved in the government he fought for his country he served as president but he really wanted to be back at his regular day job I would like you didn't even want to be the president no he he and he certainly did want to be king. no. but but if you said when you've gone out and actually done something with your life and then you run for the legislature new satellite to go serve but you won't even need term limits if you have people who look forward to leaving the public service because they don't view it as a career we need fewer career politicians and and unfortunately they are few and far between right now and usually by the time somebody has accomplished a lot in their life they built a business up at all they say I don't want to you know leave what I'm doing here and maybe have it fall apart while I'm gone so I can run for Congress to run for governor but I think in a lot of ways Drake those are exactly the people that we need to have as governors as mayors and the bit about failure that I think is important is if you've gone out and started a business and it succeeded and then you start another one and it failed you for you learn from failure you think about some of the biggest success stories teve job the late Steve Jobs well I didn't like his politics was a huge success but he also had huge failures he failed with a computer company called next he failed with a number of things but he also succeeded I gotta tell you something every time you fail you'll learn something and then then what you take what you learn and you go off and you figure out what you're going to do next I would like to have more of those people in office I think there's a way to make that happen and I don't think we have to be saddled with just people who are professional politicians Drake it's a pleasure thanks for the call if you've been thinking about buying a DNA kit now is the perfect time because twenty three in me that's the best DNA kit on the market and I know I've used them it just got better.

"Lars Larsen show welcome back to the Lars Larsen show last night I was at dinner celebrating a friend's birthday and I had to admit when I was a kid I was a nerd and I have to admit that today as an adult I'm still a nerd I love technology and I especially love the stories that go into technology I remember when I was a little kid I was about nine years old and I stayed home from playing in the summertime with my buddies to watch men walk on the moon for the very first time in nineteen sixty nine while we're in that summer of celebration marking the landing of Neil Armstrong and buzz Aldrin Collins had to stay up in the in the command module in orbit Bozo he drew the short straw but they did something when they landed on the moon that is still paying benefits today including perhaps all of G. P. S. technology doctor Todd Jagr joins me now who's global commercial director of objects for her radius and a former laser range finding research scientist for NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center doctor Yeager it's good to have you on the program well thank you Lars I'm also a self professed nerd so I could do about the air we nerds have to hang together but I didn't know this little piece of history that they actually put a reflector on the moon so that it could be shot from a laser on earth am I right about that and and that the they measure the time interval it took for the laser to travel it's hundred eighty six thousand miles per second speed allied I'm sure the atmosphere make some difference but by being able to do this they determined things that eventually led to GPS that's correct so you can think of the experiments similar to sonar technology where you just send a signal out bounces off something comes back and helps you determine the distance away from that now the laser ranging had occurred before the reflector went up there but as the moon is not a perfectly smooth spherical object when the light would hit inside of a crevice or a crater versus having on top of a mountain you get a different time signals it came back to earth so this laser Rexburg factor reflector was put on there and has a a flat object so that you always had the same sort of reflection coming off and how this helps out with GPS is it helped us to understand better how gravity between the earth and the moon work where we couldn't verify are you sorry area of relativity now how does that affect you yeah and and why is that important what was very relativity told us that hello I'm where you are in space where space and time this fabric has been curves by gravity of large mass of objects think about like a bowling ball but on a trampoline and how that would dragnet trampling down but permanent ending on where you're at how fast you're travelling around you're going to experience time differently and make the already long story that I'm telling a bit shorter and ends up that if you're on earth persist in one of these satellite that's orbiting very fast at twelve thousand miles above the earth you've got a a time dilation of about thirty eight microseconds so thirty eight millions of a second doesn't sound like much but when you when you know that the satellites have to have an accuracy of billions of a second you can see how they could come out a track pretty quickly each other so the process is inside of the GPS satellites actually have an algorithm that correct for this time dilation caused by relativistic effects okay so so find Einstein came up with the three relatively and and and what if I may get way past my my depth on this but it means that if if you were if you were riding on one of these satellites into earth orbit you're actually experiencing time differently than if you're standing on on planet earth watching the satellite go by absolutely that's that's particles state wow I mean an end in by being able to figure out the differences that made it possible otherwise you do put up all these GPS satellites and they would have experience time differently even if they each had what independent the Tomic clocks on them which I think someone dude on day all right so they have these atomic clocks on I mean you can think of these things as as taking a long and you have these clocks on the earth that are doing the communication with it at the clock this on the satellite will actually be about thirty eight microseconds the clock that's on the earth and this relates to GPS such as you know let's say that you had a gas station on there that's a half mile away well if you try to look at that same measurement one day later if they have mile away plus or minus five miles so you lose all of the accuracy and precision that the satellites are are known for no one went Horatius put it up there and and they made it out of high tech fused silica which sounds like a fancy scientific way of saying glass isn't that what high tech fusil Acadia's is glass or or glassy substance it is class but unlike your traditional glass melting we think of you know stand being melted with some other chemicals with that the fuselage is actually created from a a reaction where you burn a silicon containing gas and hydrogen oxygen quite you actually make your silicon dioxide which is the basis of glass the reason why it has done so well is space and as high radiation environment is because of just that it's one of the purest substances ever synthesized by man regular glass is going to have transition metals and other impurities in act where into Celica you're talking parts per billion or parts per trillion levels of these injuries because it does have the impurities it doesn't do what we call solar station which means that over time the class would turn yellow and then around and then eventually black it's already a tough enough experiment as it is we really don't wanna lose signal over time how big is this reflector physically it's about a foot square elements are getting individual elements are about thirty nine millimeters or so across our and and are there still experiments that scientists are doing whether shooting this this same reflector from fifty years ago today yes actually it says the only continuously functioning left from Apollo eleven NASA needed it to work for ten years so being the head of the global sales team at so it's nice when we can under comments and over deliver well no kidding and what is her radius do these days weren't you all sorts of trouble are when we actually are applying plants for the laser rex reflectors the new GPS block three satellites will which will improve the precision of our current GPS systems using laser communications between the satellite and the ground it's also used in these high energy laser directed energy weapons of the things that you see it in down rounds and hopefully if there ever is god forbid an ICBM you know large that these would be able to take that out in the first phase and the like wise we have a commercial optics it's and bio medical devices of course high quality cues so what is used as well in the telecommute you have telecommunications industry as a strong in the fiber optics so five G. for instance will always use a high purity cues silica fiber to send this data all around the planet and what you're telling me is or the newer generation of satellites will not only be checking with their own internal atomic clock comparing notes with the ground but comparing notes with each other in orbit at the same time alright you getting with each other as well as laser ranging from each other so measuring the distance in real time from one satellite to another and also from ground stations now doctor where were you when when men for stepped on the moon remember I was negative nine years maybe a former life I can just tell you I told my mom my mom was a nurse and and I said I'm gonna stay home today and she said why is that I said I want to watch this and I watch it on a little black and white TV but it was it was one of the thrills of my young life I loved science fiction I love the space program and and I still love it today and in fact is one of the few things I would vote to spend more federal money on rather than less doctor Yeager thanks so much for taking the time and thanks for the work you do it did both harassed and at NASA's Goddard flight center my pleasure large you take care is a pleasure to have you on as doctor Todd Yeager global commuter commercial director of optics for her radius that reflector is still sitting there on the moon where.

"Larson. Welcome back to LARs Larson show pleasure to be with you on a first amendment Friday night tonight live from the Reagan Presidential library down here to attend attended dinner tonight of the national right to work legal foundation. And I've been getting my share phone calls about unions. Just you all understand. I've had some bad experiences with unions throughout my life. I didn't ask for him. They were forced on me. I'd get a job at show up. They'd say you're going to be joining the union, and I'd say what if I don't want to what if I want to make a choice about whether or not I joined the union, and they say, no, you don't have that choice. You have to join or you will be fired. And that is the rule in twenty three states twenty-seven states have right to work where if you go to work in a union shop, and you say I'd like to join the union or I don't want to join the union twenty-seven states. The majority of American states represent actually reflect your right to make that choice and the case of. Made while I'm not thrilled. With unions. The case I've always made for the unions being forced to work for your membership. Is that if you're in a state where they say you have to join you don't have any choice that union does not have to work very hard for you at all on the other hand, if the union has to work for you to join because you're in a right to work state, and it's up to you to decide whether you want to or not then they're gonna come to you. And they're going to say, we're going to do all kinds of things for you. Look at all the wonderful things we do for you. In other words, they have to sell you on the idea the same way any other group, and I use the NRA because it's handy. But there are meme there are groups that I'm a member of. And if I find some day that I say, this really isn't doing much for me right now, I'm paying these guys a certain amount of money every year, they send me a lot of advertising, but it really doesn't do something for me. I quit my membership in that group if the group wants to keep me as a member. They have to convince me that what they're doing. For me is worth the dollars that I pay to them that's a healthy relationship. Most of us have those kind of relationships with all kinds of people.
