Because of an unclear statute in Missouri’s law, two PFRs who were eligible to get off the registry are now required to register for life. We explore the case of Brock Smith and Gary Nelson Ford, and why Missouri’s Supreme Court concluded that even though Missouri law was unclear, they would defer to the legislative […]
Elena has been kidnapped by Wes and brought to a new Augustine lab - which also happens to be the former clinic of her own father, Dr. Graysen Gilbert! Wes reveals his own scientific plans. We learn more about Graysen's Augustine research, which seems to keep boiling down to the fact that vampire blood heals humans. So why is he electrocuting people? Unclear. Meanwhile, Stefan and Damon kidnap Aaron who Wes honestly couldn't give a shit about. Wes lets Enzo out to reunite with Damon, and gives him an opportunity to monologue and fight. There seems to be a Delena breakup - but will it stick? Finally, we end with Katherine looking the closest to death she's ever looked - how will she get out of this one?

It's Casual Friday! Sam and Emma host Jamelle Bouie, opinion columnist at the New York Times and co-host of the Unclear and Present Danger podcast, to round up the week in news. Then, they're joined by Hamza Syed, co-host of The Trojan Horse Affair podcast, available from the New York Times and Serial. First, Sam and Emma run through updates on Biden leading the US through another strong quarter for labor, Blinken delaying his trip to China amidst the arrival of a “Spy Weather balloon” in the US, George Santos, the removal of Rep Ilhan Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee, and the Fed continuing their full-on assault on labor, before diving into Fox's juxtaposition of a strong labor market with Ford failing to meet some of their own revenue expectations. Jamelle Bouie then joins as he dives right into the murder of Tyre Nichols at the hands of the Memphis Police Department's Scorpion Squad, and the importance of understanding the impact of the hyper-policing of marginalized communities on their relationship to politics and the state writ large. Bouie walks through the work of Joe Soss and Vesla Weaver that paints police as the most direct relationship that marginalized communities have with the state, understanding that their treatment at the hands of police creates a pessimistic view of the state and encourages a removal from the political system entirely. Capping off that conversation, Jamelle, Emma, and Sam walk through marginalized communities' relationship to crime, understanding their fellow citizens as overpoliced in daily life while under-policed in terms of the actual risks to the community via violent crime, all serving to paint their social role, as understood by the state, as one of developing criminality rather than active citizenship. Next, Jamelle Bouie parses through the nascent stages of the GOP presidential race, why DeSantis and much of the rest of the Right relies on culture war discourse over policy, why the media struggles to handle GOP lies after decades of embracing them, Donald Trump's role as an outside candidate even in 2024, and the constitutional nature of debt ceiling debates. They also talk with Hamza Syed about his work uncovering the Islamophobic response of the UK Government to obviously false papers covering an Islamic coup of Birmingham's education system, and the UK Policy Exchange's and much of the media's attempt to paint his journalism as an extension of this Islamist project of extremism. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma watch Kevin McCarthy try to defend the removal of Ilhan Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee as “precedent” following the removal of Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar for threats against other sitting congresspeople. They also dive into the recent House vote to denounce socialism and what that means for the future of socialist policies like M4A, with 109 Democrats joining the Right on the vote, Ben Shapiro talks girl pants and why they can never be paired with boy legs, and Donald Trump rags on Ron DeSantis' whimpering for help ahead of his 2018 race, plus, your calls and IMs!

In this week's episode, Jamelle and John discuss “Without Warning,” a made-for-television science fiction film from 1994, produced as if it were an actual breaking news event, with “reports” from on-the-ground correspondents from around the world. They discuss the inspiration for this “docudrama” genre as well as the general wave of “asteroid attack” films in the 1990s. They also talk the psychology behind the idea that a global disaster would bring humanity together (under American leadership, of course).Connor Lynch produced this episode.

A week after Auckland's record breaking floods, authorities still have no idea how many people have now been made homeless. Just under 650 have so far asked Auckland Emergency Management for help to find somewhere to live but there will be be many more who have made their own arrangements and are relying on friends and family. Rowan Quinn reports. Morning Report approached the Housing Minister, Social Development Minister, The Auckland Minister and MBIE, who all declined to talk about finding homes for those who have lost everything.

New EpisodeThis week, Jamelle and John are joined by historian Gillet Rosenblith to discuss the 1994 action thriller “Surviving the Game,” a loose adaptation of “The Most Dangerous Game” and a glimpse into anxieties and fears regarding poverty, homelessness and urban decay in the 1990s. They also discuss other, similar films of the era, like John Woo's “Hard Target,” and they discuss further what distinguishes the action movies of the 1990s from their predecessors in the 70s and 80s.Connor Lynch produced this episode.

The news of Texas covered today includes:Our Lone Star story of the day: Texas House and Senate committee chairmen have released their draft biennial budgets for the 88th Session. What's the press and Democrat reaction? They're bothered that there's no plan to massively grow government and spend all the new money. That shows, again, that they miss the key to the Texas Miracle which is predictability combined with responsible spending.Don't let all the stories about how Abbott and Patrick are mostly in line with one another fool you. It is proven by the draft budgets that, at this point, the House and Senate do not share any vision on how best to bring tax relief and how significant such will be. They could tear each other apart over this issue and such wouldn't be something new.Interestingly, the best write-up on the budget and spending came from a trade group before the budgets were released, read it here.Our Lone Star story of the day is sponsored by Allied Compliance Services providing the best service in DOT, business and personal drug and alcohol testing since 1995.There are legislators not afraid to fight the Left's perverted cultural revolution and they are at work trying to protect children and the family unit.

Activity does not always equate to productivity. Just because you are active doesn't mean you're producing anything, or there's any result coming in. Unfortunately, many switch up activity to productivity. In this masterclass, I'm going to explain why being active only sucked up your time and effort. I will also share what you need to do to make a change from being busy with activities to being productive. Being productive means you prioritize the more important item that needs your attention. Learn more about how you can be efficient and productive. Tune in now! Show notes: [07:25]#1 Unclear and unmeasurable goals lead to unclear processes. [21:21]#2 The motivation is there but if your process is unclear there will be no results. [20:22]#3 Get help and stop trying to do something that you're not an expert at.

Hello listeners! This on the Patreon week we continued our journey into the work of Graham Greene and Carol Reed with the 1949 British noir “The Third Man.” It suffices to say that this is one of the most famous and acclaimed movies of all time, so Jamelle and John had a lot to say about its production, its writing and its themes. They also spoke a great deal about Orson Welles, the politics of postwar Europe, existentialism, and the career of star Joseph Cotten.Connor Lynch produced this episode.

Is this the last podcast before Christmas? Unclear. But on this podcast, Allen lays out the podcast itinerary which Kellie immediately derails because her 16-year-old daughter called her out for her TONE. Have you ever just not wanted to MOM? Even though it's off brand, Kellie tries to inspire other moms who don't necessarily feel like MOMMING today. After going through their holiday wish lists for each other, Allen reaches way back to January of 2022 to read off the bucket lists he and Kellie made for themselves this year. How many things did each of them accomplish from their lists? What grade did they give themselves? Allen has a lot of questions for listeners, but mainly Kellie. Are you happy? Are you grateful? Are you satisfied? Find out where that's coming from. Allen wasn't very optimistic about the Dallas Cowboys chances of making it to the Super Bowl this year, but maybe he's finally changed his tune.

Plus: why is filmmaker David Lowery starstruck by Jamelle, the two faces of Harrison Ford, the days of loafing around watching TBS and TNT, why the world needs more star-driven, character actor-saturated, mid-budget thrillers, why movies with people in meetings shouting at each other is Jamelle's sweet spot, baby's first art film, the many talents of direct-to-video king Michael Jai White, why we need more Blaxploitation spoofs, the intoxication of a dirty city, how it's too easy to do stuff these days, bring back foot-chases, subway tunnel nightmares, will The Rock ever be in a good movie?

140 million obese Americans x $15,000/year for obesity drugs = . . . uh oh, that can't be right. https://astralcodexten.substack.com/p/semaglutidonomics Semaglutide started off as a diabetes medication. Pharma company Novo Nordisk developed it in the early 2010s, and the FDA approved it under the brand names Ozempic® (for the injectable) and Rybelsus® (for the pill). I think “Ozempic” sounds like one of those unsinkable ocean liners, and “Rybelsus” sounds like a benevolent mythological blacksmith. Patients reported significant weight loss as a side effect. Semaglutide was a GLP-1 agonist, a type of drug that has good theoretical reasons to affect weight, so Novo Nordisk studied this and found that yes, it definitely caused people to lose a lot of weight. More weight than any safe drug had ever caused people to lose before. In 2021, the FDA approved semaglutide for weight loss under the brand name Wegovy®. “Wegovy” sounds like either a cooperative governance platform, or some kind of obscure medieval sin. Weight loss pills have a bad reputation. But Wegovy is a big step up. It doesn't work for everybody. But it works for 66-84% of people, depending on your threshold. (Source) Of six major weight loss drugs, only two - Wegovy and Qsymia - have a better than 50-50 chance of helping you lose 10% of your weight. Qsymia works partly by making food taste terrible; it can also cause cognitive issues. Wegovy feels more natural; patients just feel full and satisfied after they've eaten a healthy amount of food. You can read the gushing anecdotes here (plus some extra anecdotes in the comments). Wegovy patients also lose more weight on average than Qsymia patients - 15% compared to 10%. It's just a really impressive drug. Until now, doctors didn't really use medication to treat obesity; the drugs either didn't work or had too many side effects. They recommended either diet and exercise (for easier cases) or bariatric surgery (for harder ones). Semaglutide marks the start of a new generation of weight loss drugs that are more clearly worthwhile. Modeling Semaglutide Accessibility 40% of Americans are obese - that's 140 million people. Most of them would prefer to be less obese. Suppose that a quarter of them want semaglutide. That's 35 million prescriptions. Semaglutide costs about $15,000 per year, multiply it out, that's about $500 billion. Americans currently spend $300 billion per year total on prescription drugs. So if a quarter of the obese population got semaglutide, that would cost almost twice as much as all other drug spending combined. It would probably bankrupt half the health care industry. So . . . most people who want semaglutide won't get it? Unclear. America's current policy for controlling medical costs is to buy random things at random prices, then send all the bills to an illiterate reindeer-herder named Yagmuk, who burns them for warmth. Anything could happen! Right now, only about 50,000 Americans take semaglutide for obesity. I'm basing this off this report claiming “20,000 weekly US prescriptions” of Wegovy; since it's taken once per week, maybe this means there are 20,000 users? Or maybe each prescription contains enough Wegovy to last a month and there are 80,000 users? I'm not sure, but it's somewhere in the mid five digits, which I'm rounding to 50,000. That's only 0.1% of the potential 35 million. The next few sections of this post are about why so few people are on semaglutide, and whether we should expect that to change. I'll start by going over my model of what determines semaglutide use, then look at a Morgan Stanley projection of what will happen over the next decade. Step 1: Awareness I model semaglutide use as interest * awareness * prescription accessibility * affordability. I already randomly guessed interest at 25%, so the next step is awareness. How many people are aware of semaglutide? The answer is: a lot more now than when I first started writing this article! Novo Nordisk's Wegovy Gets Surprise Endorsement From Elon Musk, says the headline. And here's Google Trends:

Rep. David Joyce is the Chair of the Republican Governance Group. He joins to discuss how GOP defections are complicating Kevin McCarthy's path to the House speakership, and the multiple investigations House Republicans plan to launch into the Biden administration. The panel discusses the power plays of the five Congressmen signaling “no” votes to Kevin McCarthy's speakership, McCarthy demanding DHS Secretary Mayorkas' resignation over border issues, the Supreme Court clearing the way for the House to get Trump's tax returns and why Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has called the Teachers Union Head, “the most dangerous person in the world”.Ahead of the Club Q shooting suspect appearing in court tomorrow, Colorado Springs council member Nancy Henjum tells Kasie Hunt her community has been racked with “great fear and devastation”, but believes Colorado Springs is “much greater than hate”.

CLL #2154 (feat. Best Of) 12/31/2003 – Wednesday Night Show Source – Fan Stream Recording (2003) This episode is 99.9% complete with a medium audio upgrade, it opens with the old intro but features clips with music singles not released until 2003. Unclear what is going on with this recording, most of the affiliates broadcast music in place of the show, in particular the main streaming station out of SFO. This could be a misdated show, used as a filler by fans wanting a “complete” 2003 that doesn’t exist or it could be Anderson running out of Best Of and using his leftover emergency episode as the final bit of 2003.

A potential client comes to you with a project, and the scope (a.k.a objectives, requirements and outcomes) is unclear. It happens to all service providers, and it can drain time, money, and your team It can distract you from scaling what works well in your business. The challenge is that unclear scopes can come disguised as opportunities, especially if you're unclear about your business vision and where you want to spend time and resources.Listen to this episode of the Small But Mighty Agency, where we look at how to handle unclear scopes and the power of the discovery process.

I can 100% relate to where you are now. You feel like you're wearing too many hats and can't do it all… I know that if you create a complex business that makes you feel trapped, you will never want to grow your business. You'll do little (or big!) things to self-sabotage growth because you don't want to scale overwhelm; nobody does. I've been there.I learned this lesson as the second in command of an agency. I could not turn off my brain and relax because I would worry about what was and wasn't being done. It wasn't until I looked at the business from a productized service perspective. It gave us more bandwidth to double the revenue and sell and exit the business. Since then, I've been behind the scenes of six and seven-figure service-based businesses, helping agency owners who are at capacity get out of being stuck in service delivery to scale. It all starts by looking through the lens of a productized service.
