Garmin reportedly paid millions to resolve its recent ransomware attack
"Garment Hack. Lawrence Abrams bleeping computer as we know, as always had a strong interest in ransomware. So I'm not surprised that his coverage of the Garmin ransomware attack was the most detailed of any I've seen nor that he's had access to some. Insiders who have reached out to provide him some extra tasty bits. Among. Other things an employee inside Garmon informed him that the initial ransom demand was for ten million dollars. Oh. Yeah. Holy Moly. Dead. Dead million dollars. Okay. We don't know what ransom was finally paid. But it seems more certain than ever. That Garmon did pay up Lawrence wrote. After a four day outage, Garmon suddenly announced that they were starting to restore services and it made us suspect that they paid the ransom to receive a decrypt her. then. Last Saturday. Lawrence posted today bleeping computer gained access to an execute, -able created by the garment it department to Decrypt a workstation and then install a variety of security software on the machine. Since wasted locker. That's the ransomware is an enterprise targeting ransomware with no known weaknesses in their encryption algorithm. Decrypt, her cannot be made for free. And remember that bleeping computer has has been sort of a focal point four. The less than well designed ransom. Where mistakes were found in the encryption which allowed for the creation of a no charge, dijk crypt door and those have been organized and are are and can be found through bleeping computer. So he said to obtain a working decryption key Garmon must have paid the ransom to the attackers and he said this is where he said is not known how much was paid, but as previously stated, an employee told bleeping computer that the original ransom demand was for ten million dollars. When extracted this restoration package? This is the one that they that they received. A copy of that had been prepared by garments it department. This. Restoration package includes various security software installers, a decryption key, a wasted locker decrypt door, and a script to run them all. When executed the restoration package, decrypt the computer and then preps the machine with security software. Garments stripped contains a time stamp of July Twenty Fifth Twenty Twenty, which indicates that the ransom was paid either on the twenty fourth or twenty fifth. Using the sample of wasted locker from the garment attack, that is the actual. The actual ransomware from the garment attack bleeping computer encrypted did a virtual machine. And tested the decrypt her to see if it would decrypt their files. He said in our test, the decrypt. Decrypt files. So Interesting was that the package received by bleeping computer included references to both the cyber security firm Ms Soft E.. M.. S., I S O. F T. R. M, m cysts, soft sorry. Emphasis soft, and the ransomware negotiations service cove wear. When bleeping computer subsequently reached out to cove where they were told that they do not comment on any ransomware incidents reported in the media. And similarly emphasise soft toll bleeping computer that they could not comment on any cases that they create decryption tools and are not involved in ransom payments. Brett callow a threat analyst at. Mc Soft said, I cannot comment on specific cases, but generally speaking emphasis soft has no involvement whatsoever in negotiating or transacting ransom payments. We simply create decryption tools. Okay. Now, that's interesting news. So it might seem odd for a reputable security firms such as m soft to to have anything to do with ransomware, but they have an interesting angle. As we know, the decryption side of the ransomware mess sometimes receives much less attention from the bad guys who need to create the decrypt her Dan, the encryption side. Consequently. The decrypt have tended historically to be buggy to crash or to for some reason, fail to fully undo the damage that they had originally done despite. Having, received a valid key. So that's where M soft comes in. They reverse engineer questionable ransomware decrypt. There's for which the decryption key is known. To create a more robust and reliable decrypt her for a victims systems. Emphasis soft ransomware recovery services, page states if the ransomware. If the ransom has been paid, but the attacker provided decrypt is slow or faulty. We can extract the decryption code and create a custom built solution that decrypt up to fifty percent faster with less risk of data damage or loss. So. This also explains why the decryption package garment finally used also contained legitimate security software. That extra security software along with improved decrypt, her may have been provided by emphasis soft or may have been. Put together by garments it. And of course, as we mentioned last week, now that evil corporate has been attributed as the creator of wasted locker and has been placed on the US sanctions list for using dry decks to cause more than one hundred, million dollars in financial damages. Paying this ransom could lead to hefty fines from the government. So do these sanctions sources familiar with cove where have told bleeping computer that the negotiation company has placed wasted locker on their own restricted list starting in early July and will not be handed handling negotiations for related attacks.
Wisconsin warns of potential athletic department loss of $100M even with a football season
"Know berries dire warning. The Wisconsin knuckle athletic budget could face a one hundred million dollar shortfall. To which I immediately said well, that's not bad 'cause. Your budget is three point six billion right? No, the annual budget is one hundred forty. million. So, let's see one forty minus a hundred Josh. Three and a half, not good the
Dallas Cowboys' Dak Prescott will play on franchise tag of $31.4M
"This was the biggest surprise I think I've said on this show. Eighty million times I thought this was going to get done We were recording this thirty seconds before the franchise tag deadline at like three, fifty, nine, twenty, five, as I'm saying this so you know. Knock on wood that it holds true, but Dak Prescott will officially going kirk cousins route as his long term extension with Dallas cowboys was left. negotiated a long term deal reports indicate that the sides broke off talks as early as march in never really hop back on the wagon the cowboys would like you to know and I wrote back in September that they were offering him more than one hundred million dollars in guarantees. Guarantees which depending on if it's a practical guarantees, are actual monetary guarantees would be an NFL record Dak Prescott would like you to know that they also insisted on an extra year of service for that privilege. It looked like he was. He was searching for more something along the lines of the Russell, Wilson, deal where it was more of a four year more compact thing, and then you can dip again, for your thirty Still Shocked I think he's a top five quarterback I thought Seth Wall Dirty Espn made a good point that if you had to round up, Fi, you know. Two or three quarterbacks that you were sure in five years, we're still going to be top five quarterbacks Dak. Prescott would certainly be one of them so I don't understand why this didn't get done I think it's a gigantic financial mistake. for the cowboys of cost themselves now the franchise tag now becomes the floor. The next franchise tag now becomes the floor for the next negotiating period, and so on and so on. We've seen how this works out. But what's the deal I wonder you know he's? He's one of the most efficient players in the league. He fits well in the offense. You kept the coordinator. Is this Mike McCarthy saying? I WANNA. Get a look at the Sky I. Yeah this one is surprising as well to me. Connor I mean it seemed like they were the last couple of weeks headed toward their kirk cousins situation, but it's still kind of stunning that they took care of their running back before their quarterback like this all dates back to that decision to sign Ezekiel Elliott I instead of taking care of the quarterback, and that and they end up here and now they're in this as you referenced this. Three, year kind of tag situation where the numbers go up, which obviously is the base negotiating point for a long term deal, so you know next year would be. This year's tag is about thirty one million next year tag is like thirty seven and a half million or so, and then they have a choice between the transition and a super high franchise tag the year after that as opposed to the long-term deal. Deal
Will Dak Prescott Sign A Long Term Deal With The Dallas Cowboys?
"Prescott. There is two hours and fifty one minutes left until Dak, Prescott, and Dallas Cowboys can work in extension if not he will be under the franchise tag for the next season earning himself thirty one point four million dollars guaranteed. With the potential chance I, guess up after this season or get franchise tag again. He is now the third quarterback in the history of franchise tags and the NFL to play on the franchise tag. If that happens obviously before after four o'clock drew brees that it what the San Diego chargers. He leaves Don Kirk cousins, does it? What The Washington redskins twice? He leaves town, so history says Dak Prescott will play. This franchise tag may be getting again even but not in Dallas Cowboy long-term. If Your Dad, how do you feel? Do you pumped about thirty one point? Four million dollars guaranteed because if I'm looking at that piece of paper I'm like fucking here we go. Yeah. He's got to be torn. I would imagine I'm sure you're excited. Okay? I'm going to be the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys for another year. MC, thirty one million guaranteed, but he doesn't feel like he has that long term security that he wants from the team. McKay. You think I'm your guy. You're willing to pay thirty one MIL for one year. Why doesn't that don't you think you should give me five six year extension and give me big time money for down the road? That's where he's gotTA. Be Thinking, but so if he doesn't do it today though. He will become a free agent. When the League year starts next March right now after the season they can negotiate. There's another window after the season before free agency to work a long term deal. I actually had that happened after I got franchise tag the day before free agency, we worked a five year deal or four year deal, so I never hit the market, but I was franchise tag the year before, so they could still potentially do that, but I guess I five year deal was offered to Prescott. Numerous Times but DAK wants a four year deal. Cowboys won a five year deal and we've been told by everybody around the cowboys and that knows the organization that that is literally. The only holdup is a one year difference so that's very interesting to me because it feels like there's it's much bigger than just a one year difference there. Thirty three to thirty five million dollars offered with over one hundred million dollars guaranteed, so if you look at that, they know that the cowboys won a five year deal that means three years of that deal was guaranteed. The other two were not locked in for five years as opposed to attack once for four, so everybody's assuming he's going to sign that deal. They're not going to get a deal done, but it's interesting because. He could potentially get thirty seven point four or something next year if he gets franchise tag thirty seven point nine if he gets franchise tag again I, don't see them running into the situation next free agency. I don't. There's no way that the franchise tagging him again they would. You would think they get the deal done I think that they're trying to see if he and Mike McCarthy going to work, I honestly believe that I think there's now granted. They made him one hundred million dollar guarantee already, so maybe I'm wrong in thinking
A Tech Cold War Looms
"This week Britain's minister, Boris Johnson is expected to reverse a decision. He made in January to allow the Chinese telecom giant hallway to build part of the country's five gene at work. The British public deserve to have access to the best possible. Now if people oppose one brand or not. To tell us what's the alternative. Britain has come under enormous pressure from its biggest America which sees while way as a security threat. It's not the only Chinese firm that America views with suspicion. Last week Secretary of State Mike. Pompeo told Fox. News the government was considering banning the social media. APP TIKTOK. Owned by the Chinese firm by dense. We're certainly looking at it I. Don't want to get in front of the president, but it's something we're looking at. What would you recommend that people download that APP on their phones tonight tomorrow anytime. currently Boley if you want your private information in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party. and American firms are caught to the geopolitical tensions between the world's two biggest economies. Google Microsoft and twitter all said they would stop cooperating with Hong Kong's authorities for the time being because of a sweeping new security law there imposed by Beijing. It all adds up to what's being called. A new Cold War fought on a digital battleground. For the last three or four years, people have talked about the tech. Cold War. Patrick Fouls is the economists business affairs editor. This strange thing is it's been hard to see evidence of much damage on the ground, and in fact, the companies like apple and Hallway in China. It's really been a golden era in some ways with record sales and profits over the last couple. Couple of years was become clear however in the last few weeks. Is The tech cold? War is really beginning to bite. And why is that? Why is that split becoming so much more certain now? Well I think what you can do is look at it at two speeds. The world of software and the Internet was never particularly linked up in the first place so. Chinese consumers can't use most American Internet companies and vice versa, and what we're seeing, there is the final tentacles are beginning to unwind really very quickly, and that's that's example. The TIKTOK BAN THE REFUSAL US tech companies to play ball with the new Chinese law in Hong Kong so that. World really splitting quickly. The thing that's taking more time is the heart where supply chains which are much much more rigid structures is many many hundreds of billions of dollars of equipment in the grand huge numbers of people being employed, and it's really very hard to untangle those quickly, but that does not seem to be happening as well partly, because of the American actions against Hallway, but also because China seems to be deciding okay, we're GONNA have to go alone here which means we're going to have to really ramp up investment, and so, how how prepared are the country's respective? Tech Industries to to make that split complete. Will in the wall, the softwares already in effect pretty much happened in the world of hauled where the answer is, people are beginning to get plans up and running so smick this Chinese semiconductor company not take that seriously in the past by its Western and Asian competitors, but now it's really raising very big box the ideas to supersize the production capacity and sophistication of semiconductors in China. That's a process that's underway. Similarly Wall Way in China is scrambling around to find alternative sources for the key components that it purchases from the West particularly American companies and over the next I think eighteen months will see a sense of whether that's possible. The one thing to make clear is there are some companies. Companies here which are just left in very uncomfortable positions. Apple in China makes over one hundred million dollars a day there on the simply no easy way for it to pick sides in. You know it depends on the US Amazon China similarly. TSMC, which is the huge Taiwanese semiconductor company that really dominates the industry to some degree. It depends on Chinese customers and American ones, and for those companies that are caught in the middle. There really is no simple answer to this, but if the big picture here is that each country has to build up its own set of software and hardware champions, that sounds expensive redundant I mean. How easy will it be for these countries to make those parallel systems? Well I think you can look at it in two ways. One is sort of finances of it almost an and just that you're going to have to duplicate. Supply chains to some degree and I think that could easily cost. Hundreds of billions of dollars to do is not impossible, and arguably within the scale of the overall economy is a super tolerable inefficiency. I think the other call St-, which is much harder to get to grips with is just the risk of this process spiraling out of control. And to give you two ways in which could happen, it could easily for example move from the world of tech to the world of finance with western Chinese banks subject to sudden private. BANS FREEZES OF ACTIVITY. A night could be much more destabilizing because the financial system is very sensitive to changes like that the other risk is just that this becomes the thin end of the wedge, and sooner or later we find out that suddenly American calls or Chinese toys, or a growing list of things deem to be of strategic importance I and instead of this really being an argument bat security, it just becomes an indiscriminate path of protectionism, the house, a huge economic cost, but on technology end of things that is inherently a global business. How do you think other countries are going to deal with this split as it happened? Well the assumption I think of many American policy makers is the world's default is to use Silicon Valley and one of the things that will happen is that assumption is tested a pretty painful way? It's clear that some very close American allies. Japan Australia possibly Burton will. Ultimately vast choose go with America, but I think we'll see. First of all. China's tech industry now has a very big sphere of influence that includes a lot of Asia where people will continue to use Chinese tech, and secondly that some big economies India's the obvious one may take a third off, and you know be equally hostile, friendly to America and shine. And really seek to play both sides off while developing their own indigenous capacity, so the end of the day. You're heading towards a world where America. Controls most of the world's technology, and then there's this Galapagos of China with its own systems. I think instead your heading to world, which is very fractured with the bulk of the world's population living in countries that use both systems and probably mistrust both to some degree. So. Is it sensible to ask who's likely to win the technical door? I. Think will see both superpowers do probably just find because they are huge. Sophisticated markets and the real losers will be the node countries that are sort of stuck between the two places like Taiwan Hall Sibley Career, where really it's impossible for them to pick sides, and where the own technology industry as a result is going to face a very difficult Erie. Patrick thank you very much time. Jason thanks for having me.

Apple, Microsoft Become First American Companies Worth $1.5 Trillion... On the Same Day
"Wednesday. Apple became the first publicly traded American company to reach a one and a half trillion dollar valuation. That's right. The Silicon Valley superstar continued at Sky High trajectory despite being close to foot traffic all over the world since March, perhaps even more remarkable than the news of Apples, record-breaking valuation was that the same day Microsoft also crossed the one point five trillion dollar mark share prices of Google and Amazon shot up as well although their market valuations didn't quite achieve such celestial levels. Prior Wednesday the only publicly traded company in the world. Worth that much was oil company Saudi Aramco it went public last December, so why the sudden jump in the market analysts say investors like big tech right now because lockdowns made us more dependent on technology for work and leisure than ever before stuck at home, we all downloaded programs like crazy from apple's for the load jumped by a third in the last couple of months according to Morgan Stanley, we also glommed onto the apple. Watch research firm strategy analytics. Apple sold close to eight million of the smart watches in the first quarter up almost twenty five percent from a year earlier according to Fast Company finally investors are looking ahead hopefully to apple's planned introduction of a five G. capable phone, the IPHONE twelve possibly by next month five G. is the next generation cellular network one that promises greater bandwith with and much higher speeds. And rebels in its financial success, it's also responding to global calls for civil rights on Thursday Apple. CEO Tim Cook announced that the company is investing one hundred million dollars in wide ranging racial equity initiatives from increasing its investments in education and training to better diversifying its workforce in supply chain. If apple is the darling of individual customers. Microsoft remains the choice of corporate America these days, a lot of corporate. America's employees are operating from the dining room table. In order to function companies are scrambling to provide workers with cloud, based productivity and communication software like Microsoft three, sixty five and teams, according to Barron's, but let's not give apple and Microsoft all the credit for their eye-popping valuations. Some of their boost came from. Shall we say irrational exuberance in the market overall now bear with me for a second because we're going to be explaining what happened in the market last week? which is a century in Covid nineteen time. Last Tuesday and Wednesday. Investors seem to want to believe that the pandemic was behind us. That reopening the economy would not only go smoothly, but that millions of unemployed people would get their jobs back fast. With hope, not necessarily evidence says its foundation. The market lifted to new heights. Investors were even gobbling up shares of companies in the hardest hit industries, airlines and hotels, and then evidence that we are not passed. The pandemic surfaced there are now more than two million cases of covid nineteen in America in the US more than one hundred ten thousand people have died according to Johns Hopkins University case counter spiking in several states that reopened around Memorial Day including California Florida, Texas and Arizona. Seeing these numbers investors hopes deflated, and many scrambled to sell on Thursday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average sank more than eighteen hundred points, the biggest single-day drop in the stock market, since March as many already warned, there had been no evidence that the virus was gone and the increase in cases prove those skeptics right now. Investors are worried about a dreaded second wave which could force lockdowns all over again at least regionally added to those worries remarks by Fed Chairman Jerome Powell on Wednesday. He warned that the recovery will take a long time. Time some people may struggle for years to find new jobs in some may never be able to return to their old industries. He said Powell's gloomy outlook, plus the coronavirus counts at up to wall. Street's sharp drop, but there were certain companies that seemed relatively immune. Yep, you got it. Apple and Microsoft, both fell slightly with the rest of the market. Apple ended the day just a wee bit under one point, five trillion and market value. Microsoft fell more, but don't cry any tears for them. They ended at one point four trillion. For Big Tech companies, more lockdowns means many of us will continue living and working in virtual worlds, and that means buying yet more. APPs streaming services cloud based software and the like what this means for the future of these longtime rivals, well those who like watching races or now anticipating who will reach two trillion dollars in valuation I apple or Microsoft? And went even with the economy sputtering when it comes to business wars in big tech. The goalposts just keep moving forward.

You may have heard this before: Venture capital investing is not very diverse
"Earlier in this week we talked about how the tech industry should either hire more people of color or invest in them higher or wire on that ladder idea. The past few days have seen a few commitments from established venture funds. Softbank, launch. Day One hundred million dollar fund support people of Color Andriessen Horowitz launched at two point. Two Million Dollar Fund to support founders from quote underserved communities with a plan to expand it to fifteen million dollars over time, but if we're being honest here. That's not that much syrup. Kunst is the managing director of CLEO capital. They are real amounts of money, but compared to the size of the industry and the amount of underfunding that has happened. Black founders get less than two percent of all venture capital dollars, despite being fifteen percent of the population and starting companies at disproportionately high rates so that historical imbalance is certainly not going to be solved with you know these cumulative called one hundred fifteen million dollars in commitments that one hundred. Hundred fifteen million humility is already small, and then when you realize that it's not particularly earmarked for black or Hispanic, underrepresented minorities, you have to question how much is actually going to get into the hands of the people who you know have historically been underfunded the most right, and also, if we were talking about structural change, white year, mark money at all exactly and I think you know my fund cleo capital. We don't have a mandate around gender diversity that being said you know. Know, my portfolio is incredibly diverse. We have a lot of black founders. We have a lot of Asian and Indian in Hispanic founders. You know we. We have a lot of gay founders like we've. We just find great people and we invest in them, and they make us a lot of money are two best. Performing companies in the portfolio are founded by women of Color, and the other one is founded by a man of color and his business partner in both are immigrants the exact. Exact things that people are saying. How do we do it? How do we find it? We have to have this carve-out or this sort of remedial training or whatever it is, there are funds like mind that have just been able to do it and we're making a lot of money from doing it i. mean there's research that shows trillions of dollars is being left on the table by not investing in more founders of color like why isn't that economic argument working if nothing else? I mean we see the same thing with gender right I have been on NPR I've been on these shows a lot to talk about gender and race over the years, and we saw a lot of these same things after me to where you know, there's massive economic arguments right? There's only really two schools of thought you either fundamentally believe that only white men are capable of greatness, which is a really thought that I hope you're very quiet about or you're leaving money on the table, and there's not really another. There's not really another option, and and so I think. Think when people realize that, and when people except that, they say oh, I'm leaving money on the table. And by the way the job of venture capital is not to invest in a museum founders.

Jeff Passan on MLBPA's Return-To-Play Proposal
"The negotiations between Major League Baseball and the Players Association to start the two thousand twenty season, Continue Jeff Passan reported. Reported last night that the player Ford a counterproposal on Sunday, in which they suggested a one hundred and fourteen game season from June thirtieth to October. Thirty first, which Jeff wrote is expected to be immediately dismissed by the League. The union remained steadfast. The players should receive their full prorated salaries. The Union did suggest possible salary defers than acknowledgment by the players that amid the coronavirus, pandemic and unrest. Flow issues could prove problematic for the owners The players proposal also included the idea of an expand class for two years major league. Baseball's proposal suggests one year postseason that goes from ten teams to fourteen a salary advance of one hundred million dollars split among players during the second spring training, additional commitments to players, wearing microphones in the field and other broadcasts enhancement, and there was an offer to hold events such as an off season, all star game or Homerun Derby to generate additional revenue. This was a hopeful Development Sean doolittle, the nationals. Reliever tweeted out that the Washington major leaguers will provide salary relief to minor leaguers. Who saw their salaries cut last week? Covers baseball for ESPN, and Jeff we just went through the details of your report from last night. I think the most important question this morning is what's next? It's a great question buster because I think what's next is going to be the most important element of this entire thing in that is. What's the reaction of owners after the unions first proposal? And I think you did a great job in your Sunday, notes column of pointing out the fragility of this on account of there, being owners who don't WanNa play in two thousand and twenty. If this proposal angers the the League side owners in particular enough where what is a relatively small block of honors, now suddenly starts to gain a little bit of political traction in trying to convince some of the more moderate owners that this is a lost cause, and it's just not worth playing the two thousand twenty season. Then I think they're actually in trouble, but if if the. door being cracked open for furrows which it was done in this proposal leads to something more substantive and productive. I think something can come together on relative quick order because that's that's how it has to like. If they want to play this year, something needs to get this week and it's on owners right now to come back and really facilitate that after the players offer. Deaf I'm glad that they're talking I. Mean it's a good thing that they're talking because there's been so much time that's passed in the last Three and a half years since the CBA of two thousand sixteen, in which they haven't been talking, but my God they are so far apart. It's incredible to me. The what this is shutdown lake March twelfth thirteenth, and yet it still feels like to use the football comparison. It's like we're at the one yard line. There's about fifty eight seconds to go and there ninety nine yards of field ahead of them when you're talking about the financial issues. Either the safety protocol, and then the challenge of pulling everything together which I'm sure you're hearing the same thing from general managers. That I am like this is not something you can just execute overnight. No in regarding that latter part I assume that that they have known for awhile now. What the expectations are going to be and I I know some general managers that I've talked with said they're. They're trying to get their facilities in order, so you know secondary, club houses and a lot of the things that are in the health and safety protocol. They've at least been trying to start, but let's let's look at the logistics of getting everybody around the country right now. between coded and. And and the civil unrest that's going on travels knock going to be particularly easy and getting people from place to place city city. You don't even know where you're. Joe It half the time when it comes to either get into the city or are you going to be your Spring Training Facility? I mean these these are all open questions right now. but yeah I I would say instead of the one yard line. You've got like both sides in their tunnels right now or in their. I mean that that is how far apart they are, and and the biggest question to me has been.

There's a larger story that you want to tell with this book but let's begin with piracy because that's a fun word. What happened on September Eleventh? Sixteen Ninety Five. There's a kind of interesting bleak poetry to the fact that this happened on September eleventh. Basically the events that are at the center of the book is a clash at sea in the Indian Ocean between pilot. Ship led by a very mysterious figure who would become the most notorious criminal in the world. A guy named Henry Avery and a much larger Indian treasure ship whose name was anglicized as the gun sway and the translation of that into English is excessive treasurer or exceeding treasure. So they were being pretty conspicuous with maiming. This vessel in terms of the of treasurer on board and effectively. These two ships confront each other on September eleven sixty ninety five by all rights. The pirate ship should have been easily overpowered but to incredibly unlikely things happen a cannon onboard board that Indian ship explodes because of some kind of malfunctioning design which basically turns cannon into a bomb when it explodes in so instantly. There's this you know. Many people on Indian ship killed the deck catches on fire. And at the same time. The first cannon fire from the pirate ship manages to have this incredibly lucky shot where they split the main mast of the Indian chip in two which effectively disables at in in the water and so the pirates are able to board the ship they pull off this heist that in today's currency we be would be worth as much as one hundred million dollars so it makes one of the most lucrative crime some in the history of crime and triggers a global crisis that reverberates around the world. Okay before we get to that crisis because you would wonder why one active piracy would do that. Just general picture of the piracy problem at that time. I'm always taken aback by the way that pirates are these cute Nara dwells in children's picture books or like Johnny Depp for many people. But that's not what piracy was back. Then what did it looked like? And was this unusual. Well actually one of the origin points to this project for me was years and years ago. I mean something like fifteen years ago. When my kids were very young we went to Disneyworld and we went on the pirates of the Caribbean ride and it was right after nine eleven and I had this on. I was floating down this little canals. That ride songs are being song and everything. That's very Kelly. The that the pirates were the terrorists of the seventeen hundreds and sixteen hundreds right. They were these terrifying figures would show up out of nowhere and burn your village down and attack. The women and people lived in fear of them. Here was three hundred years later. And it's just a kind of a children's story so they'll link between pirates and terrorism. Which is something that runs kind of subtly through enemy of all mankind actually began on that. Disneyworld ride in some ways. But what's historically really important about pirates at this point in history and one of the reasons why this particular story has so much significance. I think is up until this point. There was a very blurry line in terms of the legitimacy of piracy so there was this other class of occupation. That was called being a a private here. And if you were a privateer from all outside appearances you're a pirate attacking other ships and stealing their treasure and doing all these atrocious things that seat. But as long as you weren't attacking if you were a British privateer as long as you weren't attacking British ships. You're within the zone of and people like Francis. Drake a couple of generations before Henry Avery. When often basically we live the life of piracy but then came back to England and was knighted and bought a giant estate and lived a completely legitimate lifestyle. And so in a sense what happens to this period because of crime for reasons we can get into. It's a turning point where the British crown finally has to take a stand against piracy. They have to basically announced to the world that they're not a nation of pirates the way they've been accused to be. Let's talk about what made this pirate attack so noteworthy. Obviously there was the hall but were there other things that made this a big deal at the time. There are a couple of big ones. I is the other element of the crime. This ship that they attacked was a ship that had been doing business and ports of call like Mocha in the red seat but it was also filled with religious pilgrims coming back from Mecca on a whole other level was kind of a Muslim like religious transport vessel as well and among those pilgrims were a significant number of women women in the Royal Court of Aranda. Who was the great grand mogul of India? The last of the moguls and this was an unusual thing. At the time right you would not see a lot of big vessels in sixteen ninety five. That had a significant number of women on board but there are all these female pilgrims on board and so when the pirates attack the guns way they find these women there and number of the pirates rape the women on board. Some of the women commit suicide jumping overboard to avoid being attacked. And so there's this kind of outbreak of the atrocious sexual violence that happens as part of the crime and of course WORD GETS BACK TO WRONGS. Zab that not only has a hundred million dollars of his assets been stolen but members of his extended royal family have been sexually attacked and violated and this all is crucial in terms of geopolitics. Because it's right at a moment in a time where there's a major economic transition happening in the world. There's a chapter in the book called two kinds of treasure and is basically. There are two different ways of making a fortune that are in conflict with each other here. There's a very old way which is represented by Aurangzeb which is have an autocratic dynasty tax year citizens. Sit On that wealth and pass it onto your descendants. That's what every most of the rich people in the world at this point where people who were members of some kind of royal family that had some kind of dynastic wealth. But there's this new way of making money that has just appearing in it comes in the form of this interesting embryonic. New Organization called the multinational publicly traded corporation and that was the east India company. The east India Company was the first company that actually had publicly traded shares. So that people could. Outsiders could invest in the company in those shares could go up or down in value and for the first time people were making money not just through the prophets of the business but through the increase in value of these publicly traded shares and that turned out to be the future. Right dot is how if you look at the one hundred richest people in the world today. The vast majority of them were people who made money because they had traded shares in a company. They found that their parents found it. So in a sense clash between these two massive economic forces and Henry. Avery in his little pirate ship gets right in the middle of it because once. Iran's UB here's that his money has been stolen in women have been raped he threatened to eject the east India company from India which is the main source of their income. They've been trading CALICO and chinse fabrics and so on and if that had happened if they've been thrown out of India the whole course of the British Empire would have been transformed. It's entirely likely that the British Empire would not have formed in in India in the subsequent decades. If the east India company had been injected. So why wasn't it? Attracted rings up puts a number of the employees of the east India Company under house arrest and threatens to execute them and they began a furious letter writing campaign back to London. Saying we have to find the pirate we have to bring him to justice and we have to announce to the world that we are not going to tolerate piracy anymore or else this whole incredibly lucrative business that the country is increasingly dependent on is just going to disappear and so. That's what triggers this global manhunt really the first one in

Waterloo New York Seneca county eighteen sixty six President Johnson declared Waterloo New York the birthplace of the Memorial Day parade and as you are a press corps from the state of New York I would hope that you said you remember this going forward and there's the sign just in case you forget Waterloo New York birthplace of Memorial Day today's the day eighty three of the covert nineteen crisis some of my young guns saying US eighty three days we haven't had a day off its Memorial Day weekend life is about stamina stamina it's Memorial Day weekend major imagine if you were in a real war overseas war World War one World War two rien war Vietnam War day eighty three it's nothing short of duty news is good today hospitalizations are down net change in hospitalizations is down the number of new cases per day is down this is low level now that is lower than when we first began so that's good number of deaths painfully hi at any number right and you see that this number has been stubborn on its way down but it's one hundred and nine yesterday they're all in our thoughts and prayers again you see how quick that spike one up and you see how slow it is to come down so we want to make sure we don't go back there ever ever again we're talking about re opening question is not whether or not to re open the question is how you reopen smart how fast and safe can you reopen re open as fast as you can as long as it is safe and your safe if you're acting smart what a smart mean phasing it in by metrics just study what's happening continue to test so you can you have an idea of the growth of the virus trace those cases isolate those positives watch your hospital capacity and monitor what's going on so all your actions are based on data we post all the data anyone can in the state can go online and see where they are by their region Long Island the mid Hudson region if the number of deaths continues to decline the way it has and they get their tracing online every region has a certain number of tracers that they need to re open because we want to make sure when they re open they have the testing and tracing operation working but if the number of deaths continues to decline they get their tracing up and online both Regis could reopen this week in anticipation of that we're going to allow construction staging phase one construction begins before you can begin construction you have to have stage the construction the materials have to be on site at cetera safety precautions have to be on site so we're going to allow that construction staging now for the Long Island in the mid Hudson we're hopeful that the number of deaths continues to decline and then they would be re opening this week testing is big component of all of this New York state tests more than any other state per capita we test more than any other country per capita so we are far ahead in terms of getting this operation online and this is the first case nobody's ever done this before putting together this tracing and testing capacity but we've signed up another fifty two independent pharmacies that brings the total number of sites in the state of New York to seven hundred and fifty and our message is very simple get a test we have a state run sites where we have more capacity than when now performing tests we have some drive ins where we can do fifteen thousand tests were only doing five thousand per day get a test if you have any symptoms of covert which are basically the same symptoms as the flow if you have any symptoms get a test if you were exposed to a person who you find that was positive get a test get a test and you can go to this website you know tell you exactly the side closest to you in terms of tracing all the reasons that I've come on line had to have the right number of tracers so we're talking about mid Hudson in Long Island has to get their tracing numbers up but every region has the tracing functioning Mike Bloomberg former mayor of New York City volunteered to have his Bloomberg philanthropies put together any tracing program because there is no such thing as a tracing program how do you train tracers how do you recruit tracers how do you what software do the tracers use they've been doing that with Johns Hopkins they've been fantastic we have that in place now and we're going to share that with other states online and we're going to do that with the national governors association because New York is I had and we do have more advanced curriculum and training and protocols so we're going to work with the NGA and make that available to any state that wants to use it small business is a priority federal government attached to small business assistance program that is run out of money and small businesses are taking a real beating in this situation they are ninety percent of new York's business and they're facing the toughest challenges the economic projections vis a vis small business are actually frightening more than one hundred thousand have shut permanently since the pandemic hit many small businesses just don't have the staying power to continue to pay all the fixed cost at least at cetera when they have no income whatsoever minority owned businesses face a far greater risk and have received less in federal relief so New York state is starting its own small business relief program working with private banks we have over one hundred million dollars available to make loans to small businesses we're going to focus on M. W. B. ease that did not receive federal assistance and focus on really small business you know the federal definition of small business has what many would consider large businesses but we're going to focus on troops small businesses twenty or fewer fewer employees less than three million dollars in gross revenues people who are interested in participating in this program can go to the website that is on the screen this Memorial Day weekend we expect people to be getting out going to parks beaches it cetera we understand that but we have to remain vigilant at the same time I know the weather is warmer I know people been cooped up I know this tremendous energy to get out you have to remain village vigilant you read in the papers that they're talking now about a possible second wave are hot spots for places that have opened too fast or opened without testing and tracing or opened without doing monitoring I would be the worst situation is if we went through everything we went through you start to re open you're not doing the monitoring in the vigilance and it actually winds up with another hot spot or cluster or worse frankly and remember we are still learning about the scope of nineteen virus and one of the things I find most infuriating is the facts continue to change with this virus nobody's fault but since we didn't know about the virus we had certain assumptions that quote unquote experts may and those facts change from day one from day one it started that this virus was coming from China so everybody's looking to the west coast from the west and it turns out the virus came from the east came from Europe and walked right through our airports and nobody was screening and know what no one was doing anything I'm not it was not in March was coming here January February and March virus was here much before it much sooner than anybody knows fact was if you will have the virus and you have the antibodies in your immune so we can put together a work force they can go back to work people who have the virus and now have the antibodies now they're not so sure if you're immune if you have the antibodies started children were not going to be affected by the coronavirus now we're not so sure the children are not affected and we're watching carefully this inflammatory syndrome that is starting to hit children for covert positive or have the antibodies for positive most recently C. D. C. says infected surfaces are not a major source of transmission when we started it was about infected surfaces and you could get it from infected surfaces and that was a major problem we have a very aggressive disinfecting campaign going on across the state public transit it's at right now the CDC says yeah that's not a major source it's airborne it's droplets that's a major source if the major source if they're right and the major transmission source is airborne it takes you back to where a mass where a mass and you know this reminds me in some ways of the education we campaign we went through after we learned about the HIV virus and transmission of the HIV I remember how many times and how long we have to talk to people about wearing a prophylactic and how he could make the difference between life and death the mask can make the difference between life and death I know it's a small thing it's de minimus it doesn't look like much but if it's now primarily airborne you know the mask works how do you know the mask works first responders have a lower infection rate than the general population nurses doctors in emergency rooms have a lower infection rate than the general population how can that possibly be because they wear the mask and they do the hand sanitizer you feel out of control you can't protect yourself you can protect your family yes you can that's what the mass does you want to be in control of yourself you want to greatly increase your odds where the mass by the way not just asking you the mask is

And worth of salary and not a small salary that remember will you and I talked two years back about you know, when Phil Mickelson was criticized Seyni might wanna move from California when they started increasing the taxes, and he got blasted by it, then you and I actually did the figures over a ten year period with what he makes.

But I had a bit of issue with the only because I did love wrinkle in time as a book. But I also realized that it is a very whimsical book. It is you know, it is it is about other dimensions and things like that. And it leaves a lot of room for interpretation and also for creativity in developing a film. And so it was already huge that black women was able to adapt it into a film. You know what I'm saying? And I thought they did a really good job of it doesn't follow the book. Exactly.
