MURPHY’S LAW | Draw My Life ‘Anything that can go wrong will go wrong’


You have probably gone through this a thousand
times: the one day you leave your house without an umbrella, it pours with rain – you buy
something in the vending machine and it gets stucked – every time you drop a slice of toast,
it always falls with the butter-side down. You probably think it’s a conspiracy in
the universe against you, but nope, most of these misfortunes can be explained through
the Murphys Law, which says that “anything that can go wrong will go wrong”. We are not the first ones to realize that
these things happen. The famous scottish poet Robert Burns wrote in 1786 that The best laid
schemes o’ mice an’ men often go awry. In 1884 the novelist James Payn presented the
example of the bread and butter for the first time. But it wasnt until 1949 that Murphy’s law
or laws appeared as such thanks to the aerospace engineer Edward Aloýsius Murphy, after whom
they were named. Edward worked for the army in the US in big projects such as the Apolo
or the Apache Helicopter, developing security systems. He carried out a project for the US Air Force
to calculate the g-force (which measures the effect of acceleration due to gravity) a person
can tolerate when stopping abruptly. After several attempts, Edward modified the design
but didnt get any results. He inspected carefully the connections of the cables set by his assistant.
There were two possible ways of establishing the connection between the sensors and it
turned out they were ALL wrong. Not even one was right! So Murphy said: If there is a wrong way to
do something, then someone will do it. Little by little, the expression Murphy’s Law became
famous, and what had been born as a principle of security to take into account in engineering,
turned out to be a famous version of the inevitabílity of disasters. But… how much is it true when we are talking
about the Murphy’s laws? It all sounds like coincidence or superstition, however, tho
it might seem weird, science is behind many of these pessimistic statements. In 1996, the scientist Robery A. J. Matthews,
after several experiments, proved that the Murphy’s Laws are not about bad luck, but
about pure physics. He got an IG Nobel Prize for this. Going back to the famous slice of
toast that always falls with the butter side down, he demonstrated, based on the mechanics
of a rigid solid and the rotation speed, that for a slice of bread to rotate completely
and not end up smashed on the floor, the table should be more than 2’5 meters tall. Unfortunately,
Ikea doesnt sell any tables this high, it wouldnt be practical for human beings. Another Murphy’s Law is related to the negativity
bias and selective memory. We tend to remember bad things that happened to us and consider
them more important. If something goes wrong once, it’s gonna be stuck in our heads,
more than the other thousand times that actually went right. This is something inherent to
our human condition and our survival instinct. Matthews also talked about another foundation,
the illúsory correlation. According to it, when we are in a traffic jam, we always have
the feeling of being in the slowest lane. This happens because we spend more time looking
at other cars going passed us than looking at ourselves going passed others. Another reason he gives is statistics and
logic. If we get to a place where there are two lines, probably the one going slower will
have more people and there are bigger chances that we’ll be in that line. If there are
4 lines and we choose one, there is a 75% probability of one of the other lines being
faster. Also, if we lose a sock it’s more likely that, the next sock we lose is from
a different pair – because other complete pairs are the ones we are gonna be using.
Murphy’s Laws have become famous in order to explain negative incidents in our daily
lives that happen accidentally – to justify how jinxed we are or why the Universe is against
us… But truth is, if we investigate, almost all of these principles have an obvious reason,
as it has been proved throughout the years!!! Tiktakers, leave a comment telling us about
your experiences with the Murphy’s Laws!

Government seizing assets, keeping the cash


>>>OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF NIGHTS, WE SHOWED YOU HOW STATE AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES CAN TAKE MONEY FROM YOU WITH ROAD SIDE TRAFFIC STOPS. THE GOAL, POLICE SAY, IS TO SEIZE CASH LINKED TO CRIMES BUT SOMETIMES MONEY IS TAKEN AND NO CRIMES CHARGED. HOW THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CAN DO THE EXACT SAME THING. TAKE YOUR MONEY AND HAVING TO PROVE YOUR MONEY WAS INNOCENT, NOT GOTTEN THROUGH ILL-GOTTEN GAINS. GARY TUCHMAN HAS THE INVESTIGATION. >>Reporter: WHEN BUSINESS WAS HOPPING, THE BUSINESS OF THIS MEXICAN RESTAURANT WAS RATHER LONG, PEOPLE CLAMMING TO GET IN AND CARROLL IN HER ELEMENT. WHY DO YOU LOVE THIS RESTAURANT SO MUCH?>>BECAUSE IT WAS MINE AND I GOT TO MAKE THE DECISIONS, CHOOSE THE FOOD, MAKE THE FOOD. IT’S WHAT I WANTED TO DO.>>Reporter: MRS. LADY’S DID NOT TAKE LOCAL — JUST LOCAL CHECKS AND CASH, BUT IN SPRING OF 2013, TWO IRS AGENTS SHOWED UP AT HER FRONT DOOR. >>I LOOKED AT THEIR BADGES. THEY CAME IN AND PROCEEDED TO TELL ME THAT THEY WERE HERE TO LET ME KNOW THEY HAD CONFISCATED ALL MY MONEY FOR MY BUSINESS BANK ACCOUNT AND CLOSED IT. >>Reporter: HOW MUCH MONEY?>>APPROXIMATELY $33,000.>>Reporter: THAT’S RIGHT. THE IRS TOOK ALL OF HER MONEY. EVERY DIME. BUT DIDN’T CHARGE HER WITH A CRIME. THE GOVERNMENT CLAIMED BECAUSE CAROL ROUTINELY DEPOSITED UNDER $10,000, IT WAS SUSPICIOUS. CLAIMED TO STRUCTURE HER DEPOSITS, TO AVOID THE REQUIREMENT THAT DEPOSITS OVER $10,000 WOULD TRIGGER. THERE’S A FANCY TERM. CIVIL ASSET FORFEITURE. IN THE WORLD OF CIVIL FORFEITURE. THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT NEED YOU TO BE CONVICTED OF A CRIME BEFORE SEIZING YOUR MONEY. YOU DON’T EVEN NEED TO BE CHARGED WITH A CRIME. YOU’RE NOT INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY, YOU’RE GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT. AND TO THIS DAY, CAROL HINDERS HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH NOTHING. IDEA BEHIND CIVIL ASSET FORFEITURE BEGAN IN THE DRUG WARS OF EARLY ’80s. SEIZE THE CASH AND PROPERTY BY BAD GUYS AND THE CRIMINAL NETWORKS WOULD SUFFER GREATLY. FEDERAL AND STATE AUTHORITIES ARE ALLOWED TO USE SEIZED CASH FOR THEMSELVES TO MAKE LEGITIMATE PURCHASES AND EXPENDITURES FOR THEIR OFFICES. >>IT VIOLATES THE DUE PROCESS RIGHTS FOR AMERICANS. IT’S JUST WRONG. THERE’S A SIMPLE PREMISE THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE TAKING MONEY WHO HAVE NOT BEEN CHARGED, LET ALONE CONVICTED OF ANY CRIME. >>Reporter: LARRY SALZMAN WORKS AND REPRESENTING CAROL HINDERS FREE OF CHARGE. WHY ARE THEY PICKING ON CAROL IN.>>┃ SHE’S EASY. MOST PEOPLE LIKE CAROL CAN’T DEFEND THEMSELVES. THE GOVERNMENT TAKES $33,000 FROM YOU, IT WILL COST MOST PEOPLE MORE MONEY TO GET THAT BACK THAN WHAT THEY’VE TAKEN, SO PEOPLE JUST GIVE UP.>>Reporter: THE IRS WOULDN’T TALK ON CAMERA TO CNN, BUT DID ISSUE A STATEMENT TO US. SEEMING TO INDICATE IT WAS BACKING OFF ON AT LEAST SOME CASES LIKE CAROL HINDERS. WE RECOGNIZE OFTEN MAKE DEPOSITS UNDER $10,000 WITHOUT ANY INTENT TO AVOID THE REPORTING REQUIREMENTS THE STATEMENT SAID. AND IT ADDED, AFTER CONDUCTING A REVIEW OF THE STRUCTURING CASES, THE IRS WILL FOCUS LIMITED RESOURCES ON CASES WHERE EVIDENCE INDICATE STRUCTURED FUNDS FROM DERIVED FROM ILLEGAL SOURCES. THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE IS OVERALL CHARGE OF THE PROGRAM AND OFFICIALS WOULDN’T TALK ON CAMERA THERE EITHER BUT SAID THE PROGRAM WAS VITAL AND FULL OF SAFEGUARDS TO PROTECT THOSE ACCUSED SO WHAT HAPPENED NEXT? ONLY HOURS AFTER WE FINISHED OUR INTERVIEW WITH CAROL HINDERS, THE GOVERNMENT WITHDREW ITS COMPLAINT BUT RESERVED THE RIGHT TO FILE IT AGAIN DOWN THE ROAD, AND LOOKED LIKE AT LEAST PARTLY, THE AUTHORITIES TRYING TO SAVE FACE. >>I DON’T FEEL IT’S A FAVOR BUT IT’S A VICTIM RVICTORY. I THINK WE GO ON THE CIVIL FORITURE THING AND DON’T LET IT DROP. >>Reporter: IT’S SOLD TO A NEW OWNER. HER AMERICANS FOND AT LEAST UNTIL THE LAST MONTHS IT WAS OPEN WHEN SHE WAS TORMENTED BY AN AGENCY THAT NEVER CHARGED HER WITH A CRIME.>>GARY TUCHMAN JOINS US NOW. DID ANYONE APOLOGIZE TO HER? WHY IS THIS ALLOWED IN THE FIRST PLACE?>>NO ONE APOLOGIZED TO HER. HERE’S HOW AUTHORITIES GET AROUND, INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. IF YOUR MONEY GETS TAKEN AWAY VIA FORFEITURE, YOU’RE NOT THE ONE THAT GETS SUED. IT’S THE MONEY THAT GETS SUED AND YOUR MONEY DOES NOT HAVE PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE. THIS IS NOT THE UNITED STATES VERSUS CAROL HINDERS, IT’S THE UNITED STATES VERSUS

Clarke and Dawe – The Government You Ordered Has Been Delayed. Should Be Here Tuesday.


Barnaby Joyce thanks for your time Good to see you Bryan An inconclusive election. What are the lessons
that come out of this do you think? I think it’s obvious we need to listen a
great deal more Who do you need to listen to I beg your pardon? Are you negotiating with the independents? We are yes. We do little else How’s that going? Well it’s…… No. It’s going quite well.
No. It’s hope…. You have good days and bad days Good way to think of it. There will be good
days, of course there will. Bound to be. What went wrong, do you think? A lot of people are just grumpy. If the gate’s
open and the weather’s no good, blame the government’s fault. Th internet doesn’t
work properly, blame the government Whose fault is it of the internet doesn’t
work properly? Bad example. If the budget’s a shocker,
your kids can’t afford houses, there’s no
hospital or education funding, blame the government And whose fault is it really? You’re missing the point a wee bit here
Bryan. I think a lot of people don’t understand what you can do in government and what you
can’t do Yes, I suppose your difficulty here is that
you’re leading the junior party in a coalition government Tell me about it. I’ve just spend a fortnight
dodging fruit Tell me, how does the coalition work? This is what I have to keep explaining to
people. The coalition is a natural alliance of
two political groups who have a great deal in common So what aren’t they one political group? They are So why are they two groups? There aren’t. It’s just that there are
two parties in the one group But how does it work in practice. Let’s
say you’re the Deputy Prime Minister. You’re the leader of the National Party. Let’s
say you want to increase the diesel rebate Yes. Good example. IN that case I’d go and
say ‘Malcolm, We want to increase the diesel rebate’ And then what happens? Then I explain to Malcolm what diesel is And what does he say? He says ‘How nice to see you Barnaby. We
must do this more often. Thanks for that. We’ll have a look at it’ And then what happens Then he goes and talks to all these other
plonkers from Woollahra and Scott Harrison and so on Scott Morrison I think Yes. Him. And they have a think about it And then what Good question. We’ve never got up to that
next bit yet. THat’s as far as we’ve ever got Yes. That puts you in a difficult position
I suppose It does How do you get on with Bob Katter? Very well. Bob’s a good bloke. (ring ring)
This’ll be him now Bob. How are they hanging? What are you doing Saturday? Want to run a
country? I’ll talk to him, don’t worry about it. I’ll tell him what diesel is.
Leave him to me.

BEARS FULL RESPONSIBILITY. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. KHAMENEI AND HIS REGIME MUST GO. THE NATIONAL UNITY FOR DEMOCRACY IN IRAN, THEY WANT FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY FOR FRIENDLINESS WITH THE UNITED STATES AND THE WORLD. THEY DESERVE THE SPORT FROM THE UNITED STATES AND ITS GOVERNMENT IN SENATOR FOR NATIONAL LIBERTY. THE LEADER OF THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF RESISTANCE OF IRAN, ALL IRANIANS, ESPECIALLY THE YOUTH EXPRESS SUPPORT AND SOLIDARITY WITH THE FAMILIES OF VICTIMS OF THIS HORRIFIC CRIME BY THE MULLAHS. PROSECUTE, PUNISH THOSE RESPONSIBLE. ALI KHAMENEI AS COMMANDER IN THE CHIEF OF ARMED FORCES AND HUE SAWN ROUHANI AND IRG COMMANDERS.>>THEY HAVE SEEN MANY SAID DAYS SINCE 2011, BUT THIS DAY IT IS POTENTIALLY ONE OF THE SADDEST BECAUSE IT IS FIRST TIME THAT A SECURITY COUNCILMEMBER HAS CHOSEN TO PLAY POLITICS WITH HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE. ERIC: BRITISH AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED NATIONS CARE REASON PEERS DRESSING DOWN THE RUSSIANS ON SYRIA, HUMANITARIAN CATASTROPHE THAT SO SADLY CONTINUES AT HANDS OF PUTIN, ASSAD, THE IRANIANS AND GENERAL QASSEM SOLEIMANI. THIS AS THE IRANIAN PEOPLE CONTINUE TO TAKE TO THE STREETS IN ANGRY DEFIANCE OF THEIR GOVERNMENT, CALLING FOR THE REGIME TO GO. WHAT COULD HAPPEN? AMBASSADOR PIERCE JOINS US HERE IN THE STUDIO. GOOD TO SEE YOU.>>THANK YOU, ERIC. ERIC: PRETTY SHOCKING TO SEE THE PROTESTS GROWING. WE’RE TOLD THEY ARE CHANTING DEATH TO THE DICTATORS, TEARING DOWN BANNERS OF SOLEIMANI AND OTHERS. WHAT IS YOUR REACTION, YOUR GOVERNMENT’S REACTION TO WHAT SOME OF THE PEOPLE IN IRAN ARE DOING?>>THESE ARE POTENTIALLY INTERESTING DEVELOPMENTS. AS YOU SAY, IRANIAN PROTESTERS TAKING TO THE STREET AFTER THE DOWNING OF THE AIRLINER. I THINK IT IS TOO EARLY TO SAY WHAT IT MEANS BUT I THINK EVERYONE IS WATCHING IRAN VERY CLOSELY A THE MOMENT. I HOPE IT WILL BE ANOTHER SPUR TO THE IRANIAN GOVERNMENT TO DE-ESCALATE TENSIONS, TO STOP PURSUING NUCLEAR WEAPONS AND, AS IT WERE TO COME IN FROM THE COLD. OUR FOREIGN SECRETARY, DOMINIC RAAB MADE THIS CALL TO THEM. THERE IS A WINDOW FOR DIPLOMACY NOW. WHICH HOPE IRAN WILL TAKE IT BUT ONLY IRAN CAN TAKE THAT DECISION. WE CAN’T TAKE IT FOR HER. ERIC: WHAT DO YOU LEADERS DO? DO YOU CALL FOR MEETINGS, CALL FOR DISCUSSIONS ABOUT THIS SPECIFICALLY, WHAT DOES YOUR GOVERNMENT WANT?>>THERE ARE MANY WAYS TOTIC SAL ONE IS READY FOR TALKS. PRESIDENT TRUMP, MR. POMPEO, MY OWN GOVERNMENT, BORIS JOHNSON, DOMINIC RAAB AS WELL AS THE FRENCH, WE ALL MADE OVERTURES TO THE IRANIAN GOVERNMENT SUGGESTING THEY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A DIPLOMATIC WINDOW THAT HAS NOW APPEARED, THAT THEY COME IN FROM THE COLD. I WOULD THINK THAT SORT OF THING IS NORMALLY DONE QUIETLY IN THE FIRST INSTANCE WITH SENIOR OFFICIALS MEETING, PRIVATELY, PERHAPS TO PREPARE A WAY FORWARD SO THAT LEADERS CAN MEET. THERE ARE MANY WAYS OF DOING IT. I THINK THE IMPORTANT THING IS THAT THE IRANIAN GOVERNMENT TAKES A STEP.>>WHAT IS THE IRANIAN GOVERNMENT DOING? ARE THOSE OVERTURES RECIPROCATED?>>THEY HAVE SENT A VARIETY OF MESSAGES BUT THE MESSAGES TEND TO BE VERY IN THE MOMENT, VERY TRANSACTIONAL. THEY HAVE NOT AS FAR AS I KNOW ACCEPTED U.S., FRENCH, OR BRITISH OFFERS. WE REALLY WOULD URGE THEM TO DO SO. WE THINK WHAT THEIR OWN PEOPLE THINK OF THE CURRENT SITUATION. NOW IS A VERY GOOD TIME TO DE-ESCALATE TENSIONS. STATEMENT, OF COURSE, WE MUS’NT TAKE OUR EYE OFF THE NUCLEAR WE. WE REALLY DON’T WANT IRAN TO ACQUIRE A NUCLEAR WEAPON. ERIC: OF COURSE THE PAST FEW MONTHS THEY HAD PROTESTS AND THE IRANIAN REGIME KILLED 1500 OF THE PROTESTERS. DIDN’T ALLOW THE FAMILIES TO MOURN THE YOUNG PEOPLE THAT WERE KILLED. THE PRESIDENT TWEETED OUT ASKING IRANIAN GOVERNMENT NOT TO KILL THE PROTESTERS. DOES YOUR GOVERNMENT AGREE?>>WE ABSOLUTELY AGREE WITH THAT. PEOPLE HAVE A FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF ASSEMBLY, FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION. THAT INCLUDES THE RIGHT TO PEACEFUL PROTEST. SOMETIMES THOSE RESULTS HAVE A VARIETY OF MOTIVATIONS BUT I THINK THE IMPORTANT THING IS THAT THE IRANIAN GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO LISTEN TO ITS PEOPLE. IT NEEDS TO DE-ESCALATE THE CURRENT SITUATION. THAT IS IN THEIR HANDS. WE MADE OUR OFFER. ERIC: ONE OF YOUR COLLEAGUES, THE BRITISH AMBASSADOR TO IRAN, ROBERT KERRY, HE GOES TO THE VIGIL, GOES TO THE VIGIL FOR 15 MINUTES, HE LEAVES AND THEY ARREST HIM.>>AS WE SAID, AS DOMINIC RAAB SAID THAT IS A FLAGRANT VIOLATION OF INTERNATIONAL LAW. THERE IS THE A CONVENTION, VIENNA CONVENTION ON DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS. IT GOVERNS WHAT HAPPENS TO DIPLOMATS ABROAD IN COUNTRIES SO THEY CAN GO ABOUT THEIR DUTIES IN SAFETY AND SECURITY. REPRESENTING THEIR GOVERNMENT. THAT IS WHAT AMBASSADOR McNAIR WAS DOING. HE WENT TO PAY HIS RESPECTS AT THE VIGIL. IT WAS IN HONOR OF THE IRANIAN STUDENTS WHO LOST THEIR LIVES ON THE AIRLINER. QUITE NATURAL HE SHOULD GO ESPECIALLY SINCE BRITISH PEOPLE WERE KILLED AS WELL. HE THEN LEFT THAT GATHERING, WHEN IT STARTED TO TURN INTO MORE OF A PROTEST. HE WENT INNOCENTLY OFF TO HAVE HIS HER CUT. THEN THE IRANIANS ARRESTED HIM, BUT HE IS OKAY.>>HE IS NOW OKAY, EVENTUALLY AND RELEASED AND WE TALKED TO THE IRANIANS ABOUT THIS BREACH OF INTERNATIONAL LAW. ERIC: QASSEM SOLEIMANI WAS SO-CALLED TERRORIST MASTERMIND OF THE HORRENDOUS CATASTROPHE THAT IS THERE. YOU DEALT WITH IT IN THE SECURITY COUNCIL AND IT STILL HASN’T ENDED RUSSIANS BLOCKED HUMANITARIAN AID.>>WHAT HAPPENED ON FRIDAY THE RUSSIANS HELD SECURITY COUNCIL TO RANSOM AND PEOPLE OF NORTHEAST SYRIA TO RAN SOME THEY REFUSED TO ALLOW U.N. TO SEND AID THROUGH WHAT ARE CALLED CROSS-BORDER CROSSINGS, GO INTO SYRIA FROM TURKEY, SYRIA, AND OTHER COUNTRIES WITHOUT THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT PERMISSION AND THE REASON THAT IS NEEDED BECAUSE THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT WILL NOT ALLOW ASSISTANCE TO REACH ALL THE COMMUNITIES MOST IN NEED. IT WASN’T JUST GENERAL SOLEIMANI WHO WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN SYRIA. I DO WANT AGAIN TO CALL OUT THE RUSSIANS BUT ALSO THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT THEMSELVES. GOVERNMENTS ARE SUPPOSED TO LOOK AFTER THEIR PEOPLE AND YET THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT WON’T ISSUE PERMITS FOR AID. THEY WON’T HELP GET THE AID TO PEOPLE MOST IN NEED. ERIC: FINALLY DO YOU FEEL WITH THE DYNAMICS PERHAPS CHANGING THAT THE SYRIA ISSUE AND THE TURMOIL WILL BE REDUCED?>>OH, THAT IS, THAT IS AN INTERESTING QUESTION. I MEAN, WE HAD SOME FOOTAGE EARLIER OF THE SAD DEATH OF SULTAN KABUTZ. HE HAD BEEN A STRONG MODERATING FORCE IN THE GULF. HE HAS WIDE ADVICE FOR LEADERS. HE TRIED TO KEEP A PRODUCTIVE WORKING RELATIONSHIP WITH ALL SIDES. I THINK IT IS GOOD NEWS HIS SUCCESS ARE SORE PLEDGED TO CONTINUE HIS FOREIGN POLICY WE IN BRITAIN HAD A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE OMAN FOR 200 YEARS. WE’LL BE IN CLOSE TOUCH WITH THEM, HELPING THEM KEEP REGIONAL STABILITY GOING. ERIC: I KNOW BOTH SIDES, BOTH GOVERNMENTS WILL LOOK AND WATCHING OUT, TO MAKE SURE PROTESTS ARE PROTECTED.>>ABSOLUTELY. ERIC: AND THE REGIME DOES NOT RESORT WHAT THEY HAVE DONE IN

Don’t fall for the antifa trap


I’m going to botch how it’s pronounced:
antifa? Antfee? Antifa? Antifa? Yeah, antifa. Antifa, short for anti-fascist. It’s an umbrella term for a group that shows
up at protests to confront neo-Nazis and white supremacists. They dress in all black, they wear masks,
and they occasionally engage in violence. Once again, antifa members attack peaceful
demonstrators. The group’s tactics and appearance have
garnered them a lot of media attention over the past few months. America is waking up to the menace of antifa. They’re known as antifa, and they’re also
known for being violent. But for a group that’s getting so much airtime
for being violent and dangerous, they’re not causing that much havoc. In Berkeley, where about 4,000 people showed
up to protest a white supremacist rally, there were 100 antifa, nine injuries, and a total
of 13 arrests. In Boston, where 40,000 protesters showed
up, no major injuries, 33 arrests. In Portland, thousands of protesters at opposing
rallies, no major injuries, 14 arrests. That might sound like a lot, but it’s about
the number of arrests you’d expect at a rowdy NFL game. Antifa look scary, but they make up a tiny
part of the protests they show up at. So why have they become such a powerful boogeyman
in protest coverage? What is antifa? What is antifa? What is antifa? To understand why the media focuses on outliers
like antifa, I talked to Doug McLeod. He’s been studying the way the media covers
protest movements for… Basically 30 years. Anti-war movements, anti-pornography movements,
various civil rights movements, anarchist protests, abortion protests. Okay, don’t brag. You’re already in the video The specific panic about antifa might seem
new, but McLeod says it’s part of a much older media problem. You can see the media’s fixation on radical
protesters in coverage of a lot of big protests. During the 1999 WTO protests in Seattle, cameras
focused on anarchists destroying property. A group we now know as anarchists called the
black bloc began terrorizing the city. With Black Lives Matter in Baltimore, peaceful
protests against police brutality were overshadowed by images of violence and property damage. Rioting has broken out in the street. During Occupy Wall Street, reporters focused
on protesters who looked weird or destroyed property. Anarchists sprang out of the crowd and launched
this full-on assault. You cannot cede public space to thugs and
lawbreakers. Lawlessness, violence, filth. Now, it’s antifa. The peaceful counterprotest against racism
turned violent. The result is a type of outlier bias, where
a small group of violent protesters ends up dominating news coverage. You saw it in Berkeley. By any measurement, nine injuries in a protest
of 4,000 people is an outlier. But headlines fixated on antifa violence instead
of the vast majority of protesters. Berkeley’s mayor says it is time to confront
the violent extremism on the left. In other cities, images of clergy and peaceful
protesters are overshadowed by images of isolated violence played on a loop. I would compel you to air the three hours
of footage where we marched through the streets with literally no violence. A lot of this is about ratings. Images of violence and property damage create
a spectacle, which makes them really hard to look away from. What’s more interesting to watch: a bunch
of smiling protesters banging on drums, or antifa fighting Nazis? Yeah, agreed. But for a lot of reporters, it’s also about
convenience. Protests are kind of a nightmare to cover. They’re leaderless, disorganized, and often
focus on big issues that are hard to reduce to quick soundbites. A lot of journalists are really trying to
get a story straight and they’re trying to get it out there. But they’re operating under a lot of constraints. You’ve gotta find something, you’ve gotta
get back, and you’ve gotta tell it quickly. Those time constraints mean a lot of journalists
rely on official sources for quick summaries of what happened. Gotta get a quote from the police chief. Which means that a lot of protest coverage
gets told from the perspective of law enforcement. Who broke the law, who was arrested, who are
police worried about? The police chief is concerned about today’s
influx of anarchist protesters. That outlier bias has a big effect on how
viewers at home think of protesters. As audience members, we make inferences based
on that small appropriate sample. And it really creates this sort of false sample
of who those protesters really are. That false sample creates an unwinnable situation
for protest movements. In the age of Fox News, images of violence
and property damage get played on a loop to demonize protesters as dangerous and illegitimate. Left-wing thugs have been smashing windows,
burning buildings, beating people up who disagree with them. It’s the normalization really by the left
of police hatred, and there is a war on cops. But this happens even without Fox News’s
help. Media fixation on the most extreme members
of a protest can make the public turn on protesters as a whole. This is not populism, this is maybe anarchism. So that can turn off viewers where people
become angry and hostile and kind of averse to protest. That kind of coverage can also build public
support for aggressive police crackdowns, like the ones we saw in Ferguson and Baltimore. What is stopping Michael Bloomberg from enforcing
the law and cleaning up this health hazard called Occupy Wall Street. If they’re going to assault cops and try
to kill them, the cops will use deadly physical force and do what they have to do to bring
peace back to that community. We have police who are not doing their job. They’re allowing antifa to enter this park. Oppositions will start calling for the police
to take some action. “It’s time to start restoring order to
our communities and stop this lawlessness.” That can kind of embolden the police who were
initially passive into being more active combatants in the conflict. But the most frustrating thing about this
kind of coverage is that it shifts focus away from what protesters are actually organizing
about. It forces us into an endless debate about
tactics over substance. What does that get you? Smashing the windows of a Starbucks, of a
Nike store. What’s the point? Aren’t you becoming a public nuisance? There’s no excuse for that kind of violence,
right? Are you at all concerned, though, about the
rise in violence? That violence begets violence begets violence? And it tends to shut us down to ideas. So instead of confronting big issues like
globalization or police brutality or white supremacy. We get think piece after think piece about
whether protesters are going too far. When you think you’re punching Nazis, you
don’t realize that you’re also punching your cause. Groundbreaking. This isn’t to say you shouldn’t care about
violence or property damage. But you should be wary of how you’re reacting
to a biased sample. News cameras are always looking for the worst,
most radical people who decide to show up to a protest. But those outliers don’t offer you meaningful
information about who most protesters are, what they’re protesting about, or whether
they’re right. Those are the questions that actually matter. And they’re the ones that get lost in endless
debates about fringe groups like antifa.

How Zac Efron Charms as Ted Bundy in ‘Extremely Wicked’ | Anatomy of a Scene


“Hey there. I’m Joe Berlinger
and I’m the director of “Extremely Wicked,
Shockingly Evil and Vile.” In this scene, Zac Efron
is playing Ted Bundy. Lily Collins plays his
longtime girlfriend who thought he was innocent,
Elizabeth Kloepfer. And they are about
to adopt a dog.” “Hi, hello.” “They accidentally bump into
Carole Anne Boone, somebody who Bundy had interacted with
at a job a few years back, played brilliantly
by Kaya Scodelario.” “Hi. I’m Liz.” “Yes, this is my girlfriend. We just got engaged, so — “ “This movie is a portrait
of betrayal and deception. And I think there’s a lot
of narrative work going on in a very short scene. Each person in this scene
has their own agenda and perceives Bundy
in a different way.” “Whoever this woman
is who’s accusing you, I’m sure she’s just
gotten you mixed up with another
handsome stranger.” “Right.” “And so we use a
hallway that has two intersecting corridors
to make the characters feel a little tense
with each other. And as Liz pulls
Ted away, we see in the deep background
Carole Ann turn and look and just stare as Ted
and Liz continue to walk towards the dog pound.” “Aww. Check this guy out. He looks like he’d
be a good roommate.” “Ann Rule, who wrote “The
Stranger Beside Me,” another well-known book
about the Bundy saga, had a dog who loved everybody,
but reacted quite negatively to Ted. And that’s a detail that
I remembered and wanted to inject into this film. The fact that dogs, who are
highly emotionally evolved, saw the reality of who Ted
was while, in this scene, we see that each of the
characters in some ways are deceiving one another
about their true intentions.” [dog barking] [dog growling] [music]

Top 5 Films For Law Students


the top five films all law students
should watch my name’s Joshua remember to comment below if you want me to cover
a different subject but we’re starting right now
number five in justice this is a true story of a drug addicted lawyer taken
on a health supply corporation while spattering his own demons this is a
story that actually shocked me as we learn an after a nurse was infected with AIDS
by using a contaminated needle there is actually a much safer plastic needle out
there this prevents the reliance on the need to reuse glass needles which of
course if they are not sterlised after each use it runs that risk of passing on
diseases so why are these much safer needles available it’s because a big
health Supply Corporation providing these less safe needles want to keep
their dominance and profits in the market and bully anyone else trying to
come in Chris Evans plays the lawyer trying to put an end to this and it’s a
film well worth watching for any law students number four sleepers it is
more the second half of this film that has the law drama but it’s well worth to
watch if you can stomach the first half we see four boys all friends living in
Hell’s Kitchen New York where a terrible decision leads them to a young offenders
prison where they suffer at the hands of Kevin Bacon now the second half of this
film sees two of the boys on trial for seeking revenge and the prosecutor tasked
were put on them away behind bars is actually their friend who shared the
painful prison experience but instead of doing his lawful duty he instead used
the fourth friend as a go-between to not only get them off the hook with clever
courtroom tactics but also put a spotlight on the abuse at the boys
prison all without crimanting himself for deliberately losing the case number
three The Insider The Insider shows the legal challenges of taken on a big
corporation such as one in a tobacco industry after russell crowe discovered
with the companies not only knew about the dangers of their product but also
the lengths they were taking to avoid the public knowledge to keep their profits
growing we see how the tension of taking on such a big company with millions at
stake boils over and outside of the courtroom
and into the life of russell crows character as he carries the weight
of the world on his shoulders to make a difference this film also benefits from
Al Pacino playing a journalist supporting the reveal of the company’s
ill morals and unethical practices making this a fantastic film to watch not just
for law students but anyone who loves a well acted drama number two the judge
when a brilliant puts shady lawyer with issues with his father finds out his
mother has passed away not only does it bring him back to his father but also
his father’s legal issues after being arrested for a hit-and-run death what
makes it interesting is that his father is a judge with a 40-year long career
and he makes no secret that he doesn’t agree with his son’s questionable uses
of the law despite this his son does his best to aid in his father’s defense
despite his father’s objections with the son being played by Robert Downey
jr. and his father being played by Robert Duvall you’re in not just for a
fantastic legal drama but some fantastic scenes making this a must watch before
going into my final film for law students here are some honorable
mentions suits ok it’s not a film but I still think every law student needs a
series to get them through the year and this is just what you need
we follow mike who knows everything about the law but it didn’t go to law
school this is a result of his amazing memory teamed up with the number one
closer in New York Harvey Specter this series is full of wits cultural
references and it’s just simply cool this series will keep any law student
inspired rules of engagements one of Sam Jackson’s less known films where he is a
fairly remote Marine veteran decorated officer with combat experience but now
he stands trial and held responsible for a rescue mission gone terribly wrong the
social network a film more known for being a biopic of the origins of
Facebook however this film is ultimately controlled by the deposition held by a
lawyers of Facebook and nose who are claiming to have been the original
founders well wherefore watch to see firsthand the complications of corporate
law now on to my top film for law students number one Erin Brockovich Erin
like many is a woman in tough spot who begs herself into her job
at a law firm this is where she stumbles across a medical file placed in real
estate files and decides to investigate and discovers contaminated water in a
local community causing devastating illnesses among its residents and to a
how’re those responsible know and they’re doing their best to cover it all we see
a law drama at its finest as the companies look to bury the case in
paperwork cover the tracks at every turn and avoid taking any responsibility
which a course would be a costly affair I might be a little biased because Julia
Roberts can never do wrong in my eyes but I really do think this is the best

If Bloomberg is Nominee, Do Dems Stay Home?


Let’s go next to our caller from the two six,
seven area code. Who’s calling today from two six seven uh, David? Yes. Hello. Hi, my name is Greg. I’m calling from
bucks County in Pennsylvania. I’m a big fan of your show. Uh, 11, my friend, a lot of
my friends on the left on are Bernie supporters as I am. And uh, but I’m getting very concerned,
uh, about the idea of a Bloomberg candidacy and I’m concerned that it will depress, um,
it will depress votes and that we will end up with Trump. Again. I understand the arguments
that he’s kind of, he’s a version of Trump, but I also lived in New York for most of my
life and I lived through Bloomberg, the Bloomberg, uh, ownership. And I’m interested in what
you have to say, um, to Bernie supporters and people on the left who are getting, um,
disappointed about the idea of a Bloomberg possibility of Bloomberg candidacy and the
idea that they might not vote. They might sit this out and I’d love to hear what you
say. Let’s say about all that. I think it’s D I actually, I posted to my Twitter
page a few days ago, something like a, I’m getting emails from some Democrats saying,
if Bloomberg’s the nominee, they won’t vote. Where are you guys on this? And I got like
6,000 replies from a lot of Democrats saying I won’t vote if it’s Bloomberg. And I totally
understand that. I mean in Bloomberg, um, you have a guy who represents a lot of different
things. You have a guy who represents a possible sort of bailout for the of possible bailout
for the establishment that may be seeing Joe Biden tank and are unclear about Buddha judge
and Amy Klobuchar doesn’t really have support if Bloomberg’s really polling 15 nationally,
maybe he’s the guy to get behind. But then you have a voter turnout question which you’re
bringing up. And the question is, if Bloomberg is the democratic nominee, given that Bloomberg
was a Republican for so long, given that Bloomberg’s politics on a lot of social issues based on
videos that have come out recently seem to not be particularly enlightened and progressive
to put it lightly, what is it going to do to turn out and how will he fare against Donald
Trump? My answer is I don’t know. And the reason
I say that is I get emails about polling that says, Hey, you know what? In face to face
match-ups, Bloomberg does really well against Trump. And then I get other polling that says,
Hey, you know, what if Bloomberg’s the nominee that we’ll keep the largest number of democratic
voters home. So I understand the idea that Bloomberg as the nominee might depress turnout.
There are so many conflicting data points that I just don’t have an answer about that
right now. And all I can really say is if you support the policies of Bernie instead
of Bloomberg, just go out and support Bernie now and then if there’s a different nominee,
evaluate it and make a decision as to what’s best at that point. Yeah, absolutely. I think it’s incredibly
difficult. There’s not even enough information yet tonight it’s going to be a whole different
spin on this. Um, because of the debates and of course the mentioning media, MSNBC in particular
has been, uh, ridiculous. This is, this is in their anti, uh, in their anti Bernie, uh,
screeds. So, uh, yeah, it’s going to be real. And one last question. Uh, if you had to vote
right now and you had to choose between Trump and Bloomberg, how would you vote? Yeah, I, I would vote for Bloomberg over Trump.
And I know there’s a lot of people saying there’s no difference. It’s just a richer
version of Trump with a lot of the same ideas that the reasons why I would vote for Bloomberg
over Trump are number one, the Supreme court choices Bloomberg would make would not be
as bad as the ones Trump would make. Number two, Bloomberg actually has both sort of diplomatic
and, uh, political experience that Trump lacks, which is the source of a lot of Donald Trump’s
missteps. That would be number two. And then number three, although it would be no great
party if Bloomberg were president, Bloomberg would restore some of the respect from world
leaders that we have lost under Trump, although certainly, certainly not all. So for me, I
wouldn’t be cheering about voting for Bloomberg over Trump, but I would definitely vote Bloomberg
over Trump. Yeah. Thank David. I really appreciate your opinion and I’m a great fan of the show. Thanks so much.

Golden Globes 2020: Everything You Need to See From the Big Show | THR News


– You’ll be pleased to
know this is the last time I’m hosting these awards, so. I don’t care anymore. I’m joking, I never did. – Host Ricky Gervais calls
out Hollywood’s top stars, Tom Hanks makes us cry, Fleabag
and Succession went big, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” dominates and “1917” shocks us all. Right now we’re breaking down every moment you need to see from
the 2020 Golden Globes. Host Ricky Gervais kicked off the show by taking Hollywood to task
in his opening monologue, not shying away from
any hot button topics. He even told the winners
not to use their stage time as a political platform because well. – You’re in no position
to lecture the public about anything, you know
nothing about the real world, most of you spent less time
in school than Greta Thunberg. – [Tiffany] No scandal was
off limits for Gervais, including that of Jeffrey Epstein. – I know he’s your
friend, but I don’t care. – [Tiffany] The host also
wasn’t afraid to make jokes at any star’s expense,
including Leonardo DiCaprio. With this reference to his film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”. – Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere and by the end, his date
was too old for him. (audience laughing) – Tom Hanks summed up our
reaction to the whole thing and became our new favorite meme. On the TV side, the night’s
big winners included Fleabag, which took home the
trophy for Best TV Comedy, as well as Best Actress in a TV Comedy for Phoebe Waller-Bridge. – Personally, I’d like to also thank Obama for putting us on his list. As some of you may know, he’s always been on mine. – [Tiffany] Meanwhile,
Succession won Best TV Drama and Best Actor in a TV
Drama for Brian Cox. And Michelle Williams
who took home the trophy for Best Actress in a Limited Series for Fosse/Verdon gave a
headline-making speech that championed women’s rights. – So women 18 to 118,
when it is time to vote, please do so in your own self-interest. It’s what men have been doing for years. – [Tiffany] As for
movies, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” took home several awards including one of the night’s top honors, Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The film also won Best
Screenplay for Quentin Tarantino and Best Supporting
Actor in a Motion Picture for Brad Pitt. – I wouldn’t be here without
you, man, I thank you. (audience applauding) Still, I would’ve shared the raft. (audience laughing) – [Tiffany] Plus, Taron
Egerton won Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical
or Comedy for “Rocketman”, and Awkwafina won Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical
or Comedy for “The Farewell”. Both first-time nominees and winners. And in the drama movie categories, Joaquin Phoenix took home
Best Actor for “Joker”, while Renee Zellweger won Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for “Judy”. And “1917” surprised many
when it took home the awards for Best Director for Sam Mendes and Best Motion Picture – Drama. The ceremony also
recognized Ellen DeGeneres with the Carol Burnett Award and Tom Hanks with the
Cecil B. DeMille Award, where he got emotional during his speech and reminded us all why we love him. – I, a man is. Sorry. A man is blessed, a man is
blessed with a family sitting down the front like that. – For much, much more from
the 2020 Golden Globes and the complete list of
winners, head to THR.com. Until next time, for The
Hollywood Reporter news, I’m Tiffany Taylor. (upbeat music) (whooshing)
