We take a look at Please Stop Helping Us by Jason L. Riley. In Please Stop Helping Us, Jason L. Riley examines how well-intentioned welfare programs are in fact holding Black Americans back. Minimum-wage laws may lift earnings for people who are already employed, but they price a disproportionate number of Blacks out of the labor force. Affirmative action in higher education is intended to address past discrimination, but the result is fewer Black college graduates than would otherwise exist. And so it goes with everything from soft-on-crime laws, which make Black neighborhoods more dangerous, to policies that limit school choice out of a mistaken belief that charter schools and voucher programs harm the traditional public schools that most low-income students attend.  Once Upon a Vampire Read with me: Aspiring Authors kawfeehaus@protonmail.com Finally on Twitter @KawFee_Haus Read new articles at KawFee Haus Korner on Substack Consider supporting the show on Patreon See what I'm reading on Goodreads

Since 1960 affirmative action has been used as a 'tool' to increase diversity in schools. It began as a noble policy written during civil rights to give blacks a fighting chance of going to colleges that traditionally discriminated against them. As it should, the supreme court is reviewing the facts of affirmative action 60 years later and is expected to rule soon. The issue is that most people do not understand the true nature of affirmative action and how it hurts the recipients of race-based acceptance. Affirmative action has also negatively impacted other minorities and impoverished "non-minorities."  In this episode, Chad breaks down affirmative action, why there are almost no benefits to a program that was created with positive intentions, and why it needs to be reformed and eventually eliminated.

Excited to be here today with somebody else that has a cool mic. Also does a podcast and can talk cloud. This is, this might be like a trifecta here. So Aaron, Aaron Bock of Upcall. Thanks for coming on, man. Aaron Bock (00:33): Yeah, thanks for having me, Josh. Really excited for this one. That's a sweet intro that you do. Josh Lupresto (00:39): Hey, I, I, I gotta try to keep up with the It Matters podcast, man. So I'm doing the best I can over here. Aaron Bock (00:45): We cheat. We we outsource the intro so it's not my voice. Josh Lupresto (00:49): Oh, secrets. People are learning. They're getting secrets. Fair enough. Right? We're adding value. Aaron Bock (00:54): Well, I think they'd figure it out real quick. It's a, it's a, it's a female's voice right off the bat, so I'm not that good. Fair, Josh Lupresto (01:01): Fair, fair enough. All right, so today we're talking about Azure. We're talking about cloud. I, if you tuned into the first episode of this track, we got Kobe Phillips, who leads out the Telarus Cloud practice talking about what we're doing you know, and, and what our purview on, on this is. And then we heard from one of our providers of, of their play and Azure, their modernization strategy, the different things that they can do. And now we get to the good part here where we get to hear from Aaron and, and his purview on cloud and how he approaches this. And so, Aaron, maybe if you can kick us off a little bit. I always love to hear how everybody got started in this space. Were you always destined to do this? Did you, did you stumble into this? What's your path? Aaron Bock (01:42): Yeah, no, definitely not destined to do this. And it's, it's, it's funny, I love to hear the story of people's paths, how they got there. But for me personally, I went to college as a finance major. I took a job at a big four accounting for firm thinking I was doing, kind of auditing for financials. And it ended up being, it auditing, they called it risk risk assurance, which there's no way I would've known that was it unless they told me. And I maybe didn't listen . So I ended, I ended up auditing kinda IT systems access change management like monitoring controls. And after a while realized I didn't really like, I liked the tech, I liked what the IT stuff was, and kind of listening to the customer's problems, I didn't like just the endless amounts of documentation testing. Aaron Bock (02:32): And so at that point in my career, I switched into a sales and I was selling for a data center maintenance third party data center, maintenance company. Very small niche in a market that exists in a lot of companies back, you know, before cloud was a thing. So everyone had on-prem data centers, servers would get older, we would support them. And I think along the way, what I realized was typically tech trends, the ones that catch on, they take a little while and you hear about them for a long time. Mm-Hmm. . And I kept hearing like every place I was at, like, no, you know, cloud's not gonna totally disrupt us. Like it's actually helping us, blah. And when you hear people try to spin something like that, you kind of know it's coming. Mm-Hmm. . And so I remember at the company I was at, they would stand up on stage and say, no, everyone moving to AWS is great for us.

“We have this victimhood metastasis where everyone wants to think of themselves as a victim,” says entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy. “We have to recognize there is no winner in America's oppression Olympics.”Ramaswamy is the author of the 2021 bestselling book, “Woke, Inc.: Inside Corporate America's Social Justice Scam.”“Affirmative action is the systemic racism that's still here in America today,” he says. “And I'm sorry to say, it will then create the new kind of anti-black racism that we had spent so many decades moving on from.”Ramaswamy's new book, “Nation of Victims,” looks at America's culture of grievance—on both the left and the right—and how Americans have lost a sense of purpose and identity. This, he says, has paved the way for the politicization of business and the rise of woke capitalism.“I think a culture committed to excellence demands inequality of results—demands inequity of results. I'll say the quiet part out loud,” says Ramaswamy.

Koby Phillips (00:52): Yes so VP of cloud now, right? So super, super straightforward path to get here. Started off in Telco worked at Telarus, and then a data center, and then now VP at Cloud. So, totally makes sense, but no, in all reality, what, what's happened is I started off at a little clec Integra left there, went to TW, got gobbled at by level three moved over started as an spdm here at Telarus a few years back. Moved into an RVP role for exiting the company for a bit and went to work at Equinex data center provider. That really opened in my eyes to a lot of things. It set at a lot of the center of a lot of technology. You see a lot of you know, the on ramps to get to Azure, to get to aws, all reside within there. Koby Phillips (01:41): And so there's a lot of communication, a lot of ecosystem discussions, and it made a lot of sense to come back knowing the channel community and then knowing, you know, where we wanted to go to come back and really help build out this cloud practice. It was real interesting when we started it, right? 2020 January. So that was a really good time to build something out. Why not? The, the original strategy was really to go out and meet with a bunch of partners, do a bunch of, you know, academies and shows, and we all know how that turned out. Mm-Hmm. . So we, we pivoted, we did a lot of digital education and have we worked through it. What we really started to build is an impressive entire practice, right? It was kind of, you know, utilizing a couple of the engineers at, at the beginning going out and doing a bunch of deals. Then we have architects, we have engineers that are certified across the board. I would, you know, put up that team against anybody in the industry. And what we've been able to focus on is extending out, you know, where we're going, what products are available, and really start to work on the business, not just in the business as much. And we've seen a tremendous growth in partner participation as well as the RC component, which are both, you know, tremendous successes so far. Josh Lupresto (03:02): All important for sure. Give us maybe an example. Hit us with something here. I mean, you see a lot of things. We see a lot of deals, we have a lot of conversations. I'd like to hear something from you. I mean, we're talking about Azure people that have already made a little bit of a move, but gimme something that you've seen a mistake that people have made something out there where, you know, whether that was a business decision, a technical decision, just what are you seeing?

In law, an answer was originally a solemn assertion in opposition to someone or something, and thus generally any counter-statement or defense, a reply to a question or response, or objection, or a correct solution of a problem. In the common law, an answer is the first pleading by a defendant, usually filed and served upon the plaintiff within a certain strict time limit after a civil complaint or criminal information or indictment has been served upon the defendant. It may have been preceded by an optional "pre-answer" motion to dismiss or demurrer; if such a motion is unsuccessful, the defendant must file an answer to the complaint or risk an adverse default judgment. In a criminal case, there is usually an arraignment or some other kind of appearance before the defendant comes to court. The pleading in the criminal case, which is entered on the record in open court, is usually either guilty or not guilty. Generally speaking in private, civil cases there is no plea entered of guilt or innocence. There is only a judgment that grants money damages or some other kind of equitable remedy such as restitution or a permanent injunction. Criminal cases may lead to fines or other punishment, such as imprisonment. The famous Latin Responsa Prudentium ("answers of the learned ones") were the accumulated views of many successive generations of Roman lawyers, a body of legal opinion which gradually became authoritative. During debates of a contentious nature, deflection, colloquially known as 'changing the topic', has been widely observed, and is often seen as a failure to answer a question. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/law-school/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/law-school/support

In this episode, we present the “Affirmative Action and the Supreme Court: What's at Stake?” panel that took place Oct. 13, during the 48th American Association for Access, Equity and Diversity (AAAED) National Conference & Annual Meeting — themed Building an Infrastructure for Equitable and Sustainable Change.   Moderated by your host Dr. Jamal Watson, the panel discusses the latest challenge before the U.S. Supreme Court against race-conscious admission policies at the University of North Carolina and Harvard University. Could the rulings in these cases effectively lead to the end of affirmative action in higher education as we know it? And what would that mean for other racial equity work being done?   PANELISTS:  David Hinojosa, Director of Education Opportunities Project Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Theodore M. Shaw, Julius L. Chambers Distinguished Professor of Law & Director of the UNC Center for Civil Rights, UNC School of Law Carol R. Ashley, Of Counsel, Jackson Lewis PC   KEY POINTS: - What is threatened by the potential decision to end affirmative action? - Are DEI and affirmative action the same? - Can you separate race from a student? - How to support race-conscious admissions in higher education - Should the focus be on socioeconomic status rather than race?   QUOTABLES: “The notion of no longer needing to include race-conscious measures or pursue them is really a remedial notion.” “Affirmative action is not the silver bullet. It's not going to resolve all the inequities. But it's incredibly important, given the history and legacy of this country's own denial of opportunity equal opportunity for all.”   OTHER RESOURCES: AAAED 48th Annual Conference  The Debate About Critical Race Theory - Implications for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Workplace, sponsored by the Fund for Leadership, Equity, Access and Diversity (LEAD Fund) | (diverseeducation.com)   PRODUCTS / RESOURCES: Watch this video and others on our YouTube channel: youtube.com/user/Diversediversedivers Visit the Diverse: Issues In Higher Education website: diverseeducation.com Or follow us on social media: Twitter: twitter.com/diverseissues Instagram: instagram.com/diverseissuesinhighereducation Facebook: facebook.com/DiverseIssuesInHigherEducation/ Linkedin: linkedin.com/company/diverse-issues-in-higher-education Transcription services are available upon request.

It is my hope this inspires you to accomplish your goals with your art and if you would like to share what you are doing email me at timothy@createartpodcast.com History of NaNoWriMo and NaPodPoMo NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month began in 1999 as a daunting but straightforward challenge: to write 50,000 words of a novel in thirty days. Now, each year on November 1, hundreds of thousands of people around the world begin to write, determined to end the month with 50,000 words of a brand-new novel. They enter the month as elementary school teachers, mechanics, or stay-at-home parents. They leave novelists. NaPodPoMo: NaPodPoMo* is a month-long event similar to National Novel Writing Month aka NaNoWriMo. The difference? Well, instead of writing a 50,000-word novel, you post a podcast episode every day for 30 days from November 1st-30th. Use any platform you desire. From full production studio to iPhone app and just about anything in between. The goal is to use the challenge of podcasting daily as a form of podcasting boot camp. The Writing So Far 8 Nov 2022 words today  1837   words total 12219  There was a tap on Detective Courtney's door. He stood up immediately and went over to open it.   “We are done with the phones Detective Courtney,” said the officer who knocked on the door.   “Thanks, let me know the findings as soon as you can,” replied Detective Courtney. He handed back the phone to the Bale's. The detective received a notification on his phone from the burglar team that they needed another 30 minutes to finish their work. He didn't need to acknowledge it because they would see that he had read the message.   “Bale's are back up and running at the police station,” reported Username 87 to Username 1.   “Okay, so any other mobile phones in their general vicinity, “asked Username 1.   “Just the detectives and he received a text message just a few moments ago,” replied Username 87.   “Get us information on that number and let us know who is texting him in the middle of the interview,” replied Username 1.   “Affirmative, may I interject something,” asked Username 87.  “Sure, “replied Username 1.  “Do you think it is time to deploy the tool,” asked Username 87.   “I think we are about at that time, get the info on that number and we will convene a meeting with all the players in this,” replied Username 1.   Cody was sitting at his desk reviewing the information that was being sent to him from the burglars and the police station. There was a lot of minutiae to go through and he wasn't exactly sure what he could use from what was being collected. The burglars had videotaped every room in the house including all drawers and closets. The next update would provide a detailed video inventory of the Bale's garage and then they would leave the residence. The phone records and data provided more data that they could use to discredit the Bales. Mark's phone had detailed messages about projects he was working on for his day job and on Tinley's phone, he found apps that could be linked to opposition political groups. This was a treasure trove that they had willingly handed over and it would make their job easier. He mentally patted himself on the back for recruiting Detective Courtney and his team. Their contributions in the past and on this incident were exactly what he wished they had two years ago for the high school shooting.   He sent a meeting request to Wolfgang who had just gotten home from his uncle's house. He was playing video games when the request came in. Immediately he turned down the volume on the game and pulled out his mini laptop and turned it on.  “We are sanitized, so Wolfgang, I see you are not at work today,” asked Cody.  “The boss told me to take off early since we had been working so hard the past few weeks. Do we have the script in yet,” asked Wolfgang?   “Not yet, we are still getting details from a few sources. I wanted to talk with you about your job. How closely do you work with Mark Bale,” asked Cody.  “We are on the same team, he reads the stoics while eating lunch, he is probably the best performer on the team,” replied Wolfgang.   “Well no, what I want to know is how well do you know him and how closely do you work with him,” asked Cody a bit annoyed.   “We have worked on some projects together; he is a real go-getter and not a brown noser. He is a very independent worker, and the boss seems to really like his work and reports. He is just a few cubicles down from me, so I have access to his computer,” replied Wolfgang.   “That is what I am looking for. Does he always lock down his computer when he is away from his desk,” asked Cody.   “Not always, I think I get where you are going with this,” replied Wolfgang.   “Don't get ahead of me, but yes, we will need just a few minutes of access to his computer. We can load some things in a thumb drive that we would need you to deploy, think you are up for the task and a promotion at work” asked Cody.   “Well since he won't be back at work for a few days at least, I should have unfettered access to his computer, the only problem is I am certain that he locked it down before he left and I don't know the passcode to get in,” replied Wolfgang.   “No worries, give me the specs on what your IT uses for passcodes, and we will get it to you tomorrow morning. You will have to do this quickly because we will be broadcasting full force tomorrow, we are just sending out feelers tonight,” replied Cody.   “I can get that for you right now,” replied Wolfgang.   “No, give it to Adrian or Dillon. They are working on the script now and will be able to sift through the information we have on Mark and grab that passcode. Like most people, I am sure he has it stored somewhere where we can retrieve it. Cody Out,” said Cody. The screen went blank, and Wolfgang shut down the mini laptop and smiled. Not only was he the triggering action to move the followers of Zeno to action, but he was playing an integral part and is relied on to do important work.   Username 1 notified all individuals working on the Alewell school shooting to provide an update and status report. “Thank you all for joining on such short notice. As you know, we have this incident on our hands with the followers of Zeno already making chatter online. I fully expect them to start attacking the character of the Bales. It would appear that they have contacts in the police department and the Bale's phones we can only assume have been compromised. Just a little while ago their residence was broken into by two unknown assailants, however, a text message did get out and we were able to trace the number. It belongs to one of the lower echelon members of the followers of Zeno, which could be our inject point if we decide to deploy the tool. Do we have an estimate of how long it would take for the tool to worm its way into their network,” asked Username 1.    “Depending on that user's access, we should expect to see results within 12 hours and have access to their network,” said Username 42. “I do want to stress, we haven't deployed anything like this in the past, so we don't have accurate benchmarks to compare. The Followers of Zeno have a lower-level network with many users who are not as savvy as they should be. I don't think the inject point you were speaking of will be difficult to deploy the tool, my main concern is the parameters once it gets inside the network. It will be on its own trying to find a way to reach back to us and report in. Once that happens what do we do if we cannot convince it to stand down? We can't just shut it off and poof it goes away,” replied Username 42.   “Username 72 we haven't heard from you at all during this incident. Since you originated the idea of the tool we would appreciate your insights,” asked Username 1.   “We are using the wrong tool, this is a hammer when we need a scalpel. This tool is designed to go in and sniff out cyberbullying and end it. What you all have proposed is to use it as a weapon to take down the followers of Zeno essentially because you disagree with the way they portray their views. I am not a fan of them either but unleashing this tool will bring their network down as well as everyone associated with their network. So, we get a little fish off the networks, what happens when someone else bigger than the followers of Zeno notices the tool, and how we took the followers of Zeno down? Will they come to us to use our tool for their own purposes, will they retaliate, or will they study it and make their own? They are not the only group out there that have similar viewpoints and some of the big fish in that pond could take us out just as easily,” replied Username 72.  “These are valid points, but we are in a time crunch here and need to act. Does anyone not want to deploy the tool,” asked Username 1. No one objected, even Username 72 was silent. “I'll take your silence for an ascent. Username 72 inject the tool in the cell phone we have identified, and we will keep watch over their network to see when and where it surfaces. My colleagues, we are going into unexplored territory. If there is a team that can pull it off, this is the team to do it. Username 87, please keep us informed of any chatter coming from Zeno and the Bale's. I would expect a news conference soon about the shooting and I am sure not long after we will hear from the Zeno folks. Stay sharp everyone and pull us into a meeting if anything develops,” said Username 1.   Mark had just returned from the morgue where he identified his daughter's body. Tinley immediately held him as he entered Detective Courtney's office.   “I am sorry you had to do that Mr. Bale, but we did need to get a positive ID on your daughter. Again, I can't express how sorry I am for your loss. I have given your wife some literature on grief counselors and legal aid for when that time comes. Just know that we will do everything in our power to get this guy and make sure he never sees daylight again, you have my word, "said Detective Courtney trying to comfort the couple.   “Detective Courtney, I think we would like to go home now and start to make arraignments, this has been too much to handle. I need to call work and let them know I will be out for a while. Can you take us to the garage,” asked Mark.   “Not a problem, just so you know we will be doing a press conference on this later this afternoon. You may get people calling you like the press and other types of people, don't feel that you have to talk to them. In fact, I would recommend you don't talk with them at this time. Just give yourselves time to heal as best you can,” said Detective Courtney. He radioed the officer at the secured covered entrance. “Any activity outside?”  “That is a negative Detective Courtney, all clear,” came the response.   “Okay, I will take you back to your car now. Here is my personal cell phone number, let me know if anyone contacts you about this, and let me know how I can help,” said Detective Courtney.   Reaching Out To reach out to me, email timothy@createartpodcast.com I would love to hear about your journey and what you are working on.

The Writing So Far 7 Nov 2022 words today 1667    words total 10382  Mark and Tinley gathered themselves and got into her car. Mark noticed a call coming in but the caller ID displayed all zeros, so he declined the call. He set the GPS up for the Police Station and turned off the radio. A text message came in with the same phone number of all zeros and he deleted it before looking at it.   “What's going on, who is trying to call you at this time,” asked Tinley.  “Probably telemarketers or a scam. They just tried to text me too, I can't block the number because there is no number,” replied Mark.   Mark started the car and began driving to the station. According to his GPS, it would take about twenty minutes and they both sat there in silence. Tinley turned off her phone in case she got the same call.   Username 87 hit their desk and the coffee mug and notebooks shook. They were visibly upset, and they altered Username 1 about the declined call and text.   “Reporting in username 1, target 1 declined the call and text. Probably spooked at getting an unknown caller and target 2 has shut off her phone. Permission to use one of their known contacts,” asked Username 87?  “Permission denied, they have already been through a lot right now and there is no guarantee we know which contact they would actually pick up for. Just monitor their location and let me know when they get back to their residence. I don't want to make physical contact, but we may need to do that in the near future. Are you also monitoring their home alarm system,” asked Username1.  “Affirmative, they set the alarm and we have visuals, I will alert if there are any issues. I might suggest a blunt force entry into their phones, Username 42 could accomplish that easily without giving away their location,” said Username 87.   “Taken under advisement. I just want to see what happens at the police station. Put Username 42 on alert for possible blunt force entry,” replied Username 1.  “Doing that now, out until I have an alert for you, "replied Username 87.   The traffic was light that day. Mark and Tinley received no more phone calls or text messages and arrived at the police station parking lot sooner than expected. They were waved through by the officer standing at the gate and followed the signs to the covered garage. As they passed the front gate officer radioed Detective Courtney that the Bale had arrived and were en route to the covered parking garage. Detective Courtney acknowledged the message and headed to the secured entrance where he would meet the Bales. When the couple approached the door, Detective Courtney approached them and brought them inside the building. He flashed his badge at the officer behind the desk.  “Thank you both for coming this afternoon, have you had lunch or anything to eat,” Detective Courtney asked.  “No, we had breakfast this morning but nothing since then except coffee,” replied Mark.   “I took the liberty of grabbing some stuff from our breakroom, we are just going to head to my office. Your car will be fine here, we use this entrance to avoid the press or the public for special cases like yours,” said Detective Courtney as he ushered them past the security checkpoint. He took them through a maze of corridors and offices until they reached his. Mark and Tinley both sat down as Detective Courtney sat behind his desk.   “I don't know if this is important, but I got a call and a text from an unknown number on the way over here. The caller ID listed it as all zeros so I thought it may have been a telemarketer or something,” started Mark.   “That is the reason I wanted to make sure you both had your cell phones on you. Listen I am a blunt guy and there is no easy way to ask this, has your daughter ever said anything about bullying at school or older kids hanging out in the schoolyard,” asked Detective Courtney.  “No, we just moved to the neighborhood two years ago so she hasn't been there that long, she hasn't made a lot of friends yet,” replied Mark.   “Detective Courtney, I appreciate the position you are in right now, and I thank you for trying to be delicate, this is about the school shooting, it's about Winnona. She's...” Tinley tried to complete her thought but started sobbing. Mark reached over and held her tightly as tears rolled down his face.   Detective Courtney sat back and let the couple have their moment. “I am so very sorry for your loss, and I promise you we will find the person responsible and make sure they never see daylight again,” said Detective Courtney. Tinley took a handful of tissues and blew her nose and wiped her eyes as she tried to talk.  “Where is she right now,” Tinley asked.   “She is at the hospital right now and will be transported to the morgue in a little while. We will need one of you to identify her. I am so very sorry about this,” said Detective Courtney.   “Did she suffer,” asked Mark?  “The office staff found her in the vestibule with three gunshot wounds to her chest. My guess is that she was probably gone before she hit the floor. I know that is not much comfort, but I am sure she didn't feel anything and went quickly,” replied Detective Courtney. “You mentioned that someone tried to call you and then text you, can you say how long ago that was?”  “It happened just as we were leaving to come here, maybe 15 minutes ago, maybe 20 tops,” Mark replied.   “I'd like to get my team to take a look at your phones as soon as possible, they will basically just download everything onto their secured server, and we can have those phones back to you in 15 minutes. We just want to see if there was any attempt to contact you by the person responsible. It will only take a few minutes and we are just looking for any clues that may show up, your privacy will be protected,” said Detective Courtney.   Mark handed over his phone to the detective and Tinley went through her purse and powered on her phone. A notification popped up that the same all-zero numbers had attempted a call.  “Oh god,” said Tinley.  “What is it Mrs. Bale,” asked Detective Courtney.  “That number must have tried to call me when I turned off my phone,” said Tinley.   “That could be something we can use, may I have your phone please,” Detective Courtney asked with his hand already outstretched. Tinley handed him the phone and he stepped out of the office and waved over another officer. “Get these downloaded right away and back to me in 10 minutes,” he said under his breath to the other officer.   Username 87 got the notification that Tinley Bales's phone had been turned on and was currently in the police station, however, the signal for both Mark and Tinley's phones dropped out for about 10 minutes before coming back online. They noted this disruption and altered Username 1.   “We have confirmation that both are in the police station but there must be a shielded room where their phones were taken because we lost signal for about ten minutes,” said Username 87.   “I would guess that their data was dumped and maybe even a tracker was placed in the phones. We will need to ditch the brute force call to protect ourselves. We aren't sure how many Zeno followers are in the police force, but whoever took their phones probably is one of them. Do we know who they went to talk with,” asked Username 1?  “A Detective Maurice Courtney. From the chatter inside looks like he will be the lead investigator for the school shooting. Makes sense since he reached out to them before we could get to them, but how did he get to them so fast. The victim's name or description hasn't been released internally yet,” wondered Username 87?  Username 42 sent an alert to Username 1 about Bale's residence. They had viewed two individuals approach the door and the camera suffered from being jammed as it only showed static. Username 42 reviewed the video to just before the interference and was unable to get a clear view of the individual's faces due to their wearing of masks. Username 42 was able to estimate the build of these individuals and forwarded the information to Username 1. Once Username 1 viewed the message they brought Username 42 and 87 onscreen.   “The situation right now is that there are two individuals inside the Bale's house and the Bales are at the police station. We don't have facial recognition on the intruders as they were able to interfere with the camera and work masks upon entry. We cannot brute call them because their phones may be tapped at this time thereby giving us away. Do we have solutions,” asked Username 1?  “Before we experienced interference with the camera I could tell that the intruders came on foot at least from the end of the driveway to the front door. I would assume that they are not neighbors and came by vehicle. I'd like to tap into the neighborhood app and see if we can get some neighbors to survey the scene for us,” replied Username 42.  “That sounds like a good plan, Username 42, go ahead and make that happen and report back when you have something. Username 87 is there a way we could get the car to call the Bale's cell phone after they leave the police station and utilize the car as a block to tracking,” asked Username 1?  “The communications computer on that model of car isn't new enough, we would have to physically put a device in line with the communications computer for that model,” replied username 87.

On today's show ... Affirmative action mocks ethnic diversity as the Supreme Court takes up preferences at Harvard, legal scholar David Bernstein argues that labels like ‘Hispanic' and ‘Asian' are completely arbitrary. GUEST OVERVIEW: Known as a fearless contrarian, Professor Bernstein often challenges the conventional wisdom with prodigious research and sharp, original analysis. His book Rehabilitating Lochner was praised across the political spectrum as “intellectual history in its highest form,” a “fresh perspective and a cogent analysis,” “delightful and informative,” “sharp and iconoclastic,” “well-written and destined to be influential,” and “a terrific work of historical revisionism.” Professor Bernstein blogs at the Volokh Conspiracy (the leading law professor blog) and at Instapundit.com.

LGBTQIA+ Affirmative Therapy & ParentingWhat does it actually mean to be an LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist or parent? It may not be what you think. Today we're honored to welcome Dr. Rebeks Clark Mane and Aba Horthy, highly trained therapists who specialize in this field as well as having their own lived experience as members of the community. The four of us explore this critically important topic with more depth and detail than we've ever gotten into before. What if we lived in a world where the model of responding to coming out (from parents, therapists, and others) was not about how hard life would be as an LGBTQIA+ person, but rather normalized and celebrated the experience and the uniqueness of the individual? This is what Rebeks and Aba teach us about in new, eye-opening ways. We know that outcomes are significantly more positive when LGBTQIA+ youth and adults are affirmed, encouraged, heard, seen, and believed. But what specifically does that look like? And, what might we be doing unknowingly that's causing harm, even if we think we're trying to be supportive? Rebeks is a transmasculine nonbinary therapist who loves working with folx in the "gray spaces" of identity. Aba is a queer mixed nonbinary therapist passionate about helping clients find and express their authentic selves. Both are Associate Marriage and Family Therapists and LGBTQIA+ affirmative therapists.Throughout our conversation, Rebeks, Aba, and Jackie share parts of their story, their relationship with their families before and after coming out, and the role affirmative therapy (and non-affirmative therapy) played in their journey. They also provide tips and advice for therapists and parents dealing with their kids' transition, how to support queer, nonbinary, and trans kids, and how to avoid disconfirming words and actions that can cause deep trauma.We also discuss the BIPOC queer, trans, and nonbinary experience, the white supremacist roots of the binary approach to queer representation, the informed consent model for gender affirming surgery, letters needed for surgery and their purpose, the need for cisgender folks to listen and learn with an open mind, gender policing, gender gatekeeping, media representation, the recent episode of The Problem with Jon Stewart called The War Over Gender, and much more.

Midterm elections are a week and a half away, which could alter the balance of power in the nation's capital. Millions of people have already cast their ballots, and overall voter turnout is projected to be one of the highest ever for a midterm.  The Senate race in Pennsylvania could be crucial for Democrats to pick up and hang onto control. The fight between Democrat John Fetterman and Republican Mehmet Oz is narrowing, and the candidates debated for the first and only time this week. Oz attempted to appease both sides on the abortion debate, but did he alienate everyone instead? And how will Fetterman's ongoing recovery from a stroke this summer sit with voters?  Plus, President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump are holding events throughout the country to advocate for their parties. Both are using scare tactics — just in time for Halloween — to persuade voters the other party has become too extreme. Is this argument more effective for Republicans or Democrats? And, is this actually a country full of political extremists?  Host David Greene discusses with Mo Elleithee, executive director of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service, on the left; and Sarah Isgur, staff writer at The Dispatch, on the right.  And, special guest Kimberly Atkins Stohr, senior opinion writer at the Boston Globe, weighs in on the future of affirmative action in higher education. Atkins Stohr discusses how universities could uphold diversity if the Supreme Court strikes affirmative action down, and her recent column “Affirmative action in college admissions is at risk.”  And finally, a Halloween treat of Sarah Isgur's secret skill.

As always, context matters in the preseason. The Lakers lost again Thursday, but played without LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, Kendrick Nunn, Patrick Beverley, Dennis Schröder and Troy Brown Jr.. Doesn't matter if you think this season won't be that good, if you remove those seven dudes from any game the results will be ugly. Particularly since the Wolves used their regular rotation. Still, there were highlights, including the season debut of Lonnie Walker IV and a bust out game for Thomas Bryant. Walker was given a lot of responsibility, running the offense in addition to trying to spark it, and broadly the results were positive. A couple highlight reel plays mixed in with some surprisingly good passing. He finished with three assists, but it rightly should have been much higher. This was not a Lakers squad that capitalized on every opportunity to give a teammate a dime. Moreover, Walker was praised by Darvin Ham for his effort and intensity on defense. His give-a-bleep factor (especially regarding attention-to-detail stuff like off ball positioning, etc.) on that side of the ball hasn't been high enough to this point in his career, by his own admission. If he's gonna play this year, he's gonna have to at least TRY to defend. That's the minimum. Bryant, meanwhile, hasn't had a ton of steady playing time, but nonetheless this was his best game of the three. 10 trips to the free throw line - making eight, which already makes Bryant an outlier relative to last year - plus seven rebounds in 26 minutes of play. More games like this can help make Ham's rotation choices difficult, and the more hard choices Ham has to make the better. (Affirmative choices, obviously. "I don't want to play any of these clowns" isn't what anyone wants.) HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: AD doesn't play, again. Any concern? Walker makes his debut. SEGMENT 2: The good and bad of Walker, focusing on the better-than-expected passing. SEGMENT 3: A good game for Bryant, helping bolster a center rotation that hasn't quite hit expectations to this point. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

In this episode of the SALT Shaker Podcast, Eversheds Sutherland Associate Jeremy Gove breaks down the ‘affirmative' Commerce Clause with Partner Eric Tresh. Eric recently authored an article in Tax Notes State on the topic with Partner Maria Todorova and Associate Fahad Mithavayani, which you can read here. Eric speaks to tax discrimination, especially its effect on specific industries, and how states' efforts to provide additional revenue raisers are problematic. One avenue of curtailing that behavior is Congress' affirmative grant of legislative authority to regulate interstate commerce under the Commerce Clause of the US Constitution. Jeremy's overrated/underrated question deals with dubbing someone the GOAT, or Greatest of All Time. Should this term still be used, especially for athletes? Questions or comments?
