it's called the feeling of freedom and. everyone in the world should experience to lead to leap and you'll get the old. the old according to just. come along for the. global market selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles they don't. produce offspring of tell you that they'll be gossiping probably by file for the most important day. off of advertising telling me you are not cool enough and that's why they're. all the hawks that we along with are worth watching.
lindsay friend the bus broadcasting around the world from washington d.c. tonight a deadly shooting in las vegas leaves at least fifty eight people dead and gun stocks go up we take a look at an all too common trend on wall street also britain's monarch airlines was its fifth largest carrier it's shut down as of today stranding one hundred ten thousand passengers finally my guest tonight take a look at how artificial intelligence may lead the way to stopping cyber attacks room just starts right now. fears of gun manufacturers traded higher today after a mass shooting at
a las vegas concert on sunday left at least fifty eight people dead they often spike following large shootings as investors anticipate the violence will lead to greater gun sales. four percent to fifty three fifty and american outdoor brands the parent company of smith and wesson rose three percent to end at fifteen sixty seven also all and which owns winchester ammunition hit an all time high of six percent to thirty six. and the euro declined and spanish stocks took a slide as investors responded to an independence vote and violent unrest in catalonia let's take a quick look at how the violence unfolded on sunday in spain. officials
in the region which includes barcelona and accounts for a large portion of spain's economy say an overwhelming majority of voters supported independence from spain the central government says the referendum is invalid and illegal just as you saw close to nine hundred people were injured in confrontations with police who were trying to shut down the voting more than thirty place officers were also hurt the spanish i've x. index dropped one point four percent the euro fell from one dollar seventeen cents from one dollar eighteen cents.
the days of fire walls are over in only three years we have seen the largest cyber attacks in history yahoo sony ashley madison now equifax my guest says the only way to stay safe is to develop better artificial intelligence and it's going to be a tough road please welcome todd shipley president and c.e.o. of euro software explain to us why the citadel concept of a firewall is essentially helpless. well we have to look at how it's been built over the past decade in trying to defend what we've been doing against hackers and it's built up a big system of dealing with lists of lists of bad things that are coming into our networks and it's just basically. the decision is made by the system it finds something and compares it to a list and decides whether it's something that's bad or not and then takes an
action and so they're really not very complicated in how they operate and we've got these now these big listen these these listen come down every day from these wires companies that have been trying to figure out how to respond to this so they're not really solving the problem yet right we've got to train artificial intelligence to gather that intelligence and that takes time what's the speed situation for companies to bring ai on board after the major attacks as we've seen. well keep in mind that most of the antivirus companies of using some form of a i for a number of years now this is not something that's just come out this year there are companies that advertise in the do they're doing it solely as their their reaction to any virus but most of the companies have been doing it microsoft announced this year earlier in june that they were going to implement that kind of thing in their windows ten products so that they could respond better to the problems they're having with their products so it's something that is going to take
time to implement over this the magnitude of the numbers of computers around the internet but it's something that eventually we hope will be part of the solution well it's got to go several steps further of the right than just detecting and intrusion it's supposed to keep it out to begin with not just detect an alert so heather adkins has chimed in on this a number of times that she's a founding member of google she said that that ai is good at attacking a system but not as effective at stopping what do you agree that with that statement well i think over time it eventually will be this is still. we're looking at this what we can do now and not the science fiction of what we think it should be doing in the future now it's still just machine learning where they're building listen to understanding what the other side is doing because keep in mind as these products get sold the bad guys are going to buy the product and try to reverse engineer it and try to figure out what the machine learning is doing within the system and be able to try to attack it that way too so it's a cat and mouse game that we're going to be constantly playing with the bad guys
trying to prevent them from getting in the networks we make a good point about they have reverse engineering from a corporate perspective someone said that would help companies fill cybersecurity roles but do you see that as a very likely scenario or would there be some roles that just will never go robot engineers will always need to be filling those roles. i think at least in the near future that's going to be true because people have to look and see what the computers are doing and what action the ai is actually taking is it a false positive is it real are they able to identify things correctly because the theory of the system could crash completely because the ai perceives a threat in reaction to it and shuts things down and it may not be real so at least in the near future humans are still going to have to be there to see what happens with the and be able to respond to the problems that are associated with whatever action the ai takes but what does it take to maintain a completely ai defense system as you point out its early days on this but sort of
you know the concept is so broad it's going to be expensive even for the little guys right. oh most definitely this is not something that that the average person is going to be able to do they're going have to buy a product you're going to have to get to one of the antivirus companies that are already implementing this technology and use it networks of a large size are going to have to implement large scale systems that are going to employ this kind of technology and it's still going to have to be managed by people this is not something that is going to be let loose and run by itself this is not you know the science fiction that we want to be it's still early on and we have to deal with the fact that humans make this humans attack it and humans are going to have to manage this whole program whose work in this industry do you think has the most chance of being successful because as you said these companies are going to have to buy a product you can't just develop this company by company by company. well as companies that are developing i mean they're all looking at this there isn't one
that's really out there that's in the lead there are some that advertise they are but they've all been doing this you know for some time i talked to an industry insider this weekend about this very product and and he says that you know they've been doing that for some time and that this is nothing new is just getting the technology better to understand what events are taking place within a network and what's normal what's not because if you put the ai on a network that's already been affected if we look at what happened with facts and they decided to implement something themselves you know just a few months ago they had been in there already for some time so the ai may not have recognized that the normal behavior was actually have normal behavior and they you know would not identify what was really going on effectively so we have a lot of work to do in this field yet to figure out how it's going to play and whether the machine learning concepts are going to be the end all for any virus right what were your opinions and feelings about the f.x. hack when you first heard about it because as we've all learned there was
a warning several months ago and there was a flaw in the software it wasn't fix what did you think you think they were just dragging their feet it was inappropriate or do you think there was an actual struggle in there as well as we know the investigation's ongoing. well the investigation's ongoing it's hard to speculate but typically when things like that are known in released that there's a problem somebody on the inside failed to implement the fix and so that's a human error and that's what ai is trying to solve is get rid of the human error and i had potentially they had some form of ai emplace that could have caught that they would have known that there was something going on and potentially prevented it but it didn't and most of this time it is human error and that's been the problem well i hate to be the the constant cynic in this but as we've seen there are some attacks from the inside so do you think that even if a is put into place they're still going to be these loopholes whereby someone even a disgruntled employee can can get in and get in front of it no matter how and how
intelligent we think it is. oh exactly insider threats are huge and we have forget about those as part of the problem because they are there in the network they're working in there they've got authorization to be there so it doesn't matter whether the. basic employee or somebody working the i.t. section gets disgruntled because they get fired or don't get promoted there's a potential threat constantly there and again that's a human threat that we have to look at the outsider threats are real and there are problems but the insider threat or is just as large and something that we have to look at and find out how we can evaluate temperament and other things that people who are are disgruntled and maybe break into the system into something that's adverse to the company's desires but there's also a business side of this for these hackers they get into these big companies are going to brag about it because they get the bragging rights right and then they get to also sell us their services to large companies who are impressed by what they
did and so then they get hired and it just keeps the ball rolling doesn't it. well unfortunately some companies a realized over time that you know some people are smarter than they think and get in their systems and they pay them you know later to help fix or systems one of the things that have come out now is the bounty for bugs that a lot of hackers are now getting paid to go look at systems and break them and they're getting paid for that i think there's some reasonable nisson some of that but the problem is if you just bring in the hackers and are not paying attention these people haven't changed their you know attitude about the company just because you harm doesn't make them a good employee and now you've brought them inside the network and that may not be the best for the company bounty for bugs a good way to put it thank you so much todd shipley president and c.e.o. of your software thank you lindsey. time now for a quick break to stick around because when we return we've got an important update on hurricane battered puerto rico and we also take
i'm a trial lawyer i've spent countless hours went through documents that tell the story about. corporate media real users to talk about the. i'm not a pretty clear picture about how disturbing to work with. these are stories that no one no. holds barred. all the world. and all the news companies merely players but what kind of parties are anti america r.t. america. r.t. america and. many ways the news landscape is just like the real news.
good actors bad actors and in the end you could never. so the parking. world of the world all the world's a stage we are. eleven companies are now approved as operators of crypto currency exchanges in japan's financial services agency japan recognized as a legal method of payment months earlier and this is said to make the protection of consumer assets a priority as well as the prevention of security breaches and money laundering it's something proponents of initial coin offerings in the united states are hard pressed to make the case for to the securities and exchange commission that coin responded by moving close to forty five hundred dollar levels according to coin market cap then settled right at forty four hundred other cryptocurrency such as
inferior ripple and light coin are all seeing an uptick with the cryptocurrency market capitalization hitting now at one hundred fifty billion dollars. it was a woeful time for airlines around the world over the weekend and into monday in the u.k. british authorities are scrambling to bring home one hundred ten thousand travelers after monarch airlines collapsed canceling all flights transport secretary chris grayling immediately ordered the country's biggest ever peacetime repatriation to fly home the stranded passengers at no additional cost mark was britain's fifth largest carrier with twenty one hundred employees monarch ceased operations after failing to reach a deal with regulators to extend the company's license to sell package holidays to overseas destinations the airline says trouble stemmed from recent terror attacks in egypt and tunisia and the decimation of the tourist trade in turkey meanwhile over the weekend in eastern canada an air france flight from paris to los angeles
made an emergency landing after one of its four engines broke apart over the atlantic ocean none of the sixty six people on board were hurt and then delta airlines a flight from new york landed safely in detroit after engine trouble on flight nine sixty four today again no injuries among the one hundred fifty four passengers on that flight. weeks after hurricanes and maria battered puerto rico victims of the storms remain without basic resources in fact we don't even know when the island will return back to full electric power for me is here to get us up to speed on this beyond we've heard a lot from national leaders in the u.s. but one of the local leaders in puerto rico saying about the response most local leaders are saying that the response has been pretty minimal because not only are people there without power a lot of people don't have access to clean drinking water in fact as of today only
forty five percent of the population has access to clean water after dealing with two storms in a span. a couple weeks puerto rico has been left reeling once hurricane irma hit early one million puerto ricans were out of power and sixty thousand of them were still in the dark by the time hurricane maria arrived made the aftermath even more difficult to cope with considering the other limited resources according to governor recorder of seo just fourteen percent of cell towers are currently operating and fifty percent of the streets have been cleared food and fuel have been hard to come by too considering a lot of supermarkets and gas stations are still closed and some of that that are open have to ration however high priority buildings like hospitals have been able to rely on generators but for residents using them in their homes fuel is running out on monday the governor said at a press conference that more gas is on its way. we expect. we
will get. two hundred three hundred thousand barrels of diesel by two the hundred thousand of gasoline. close to close to half a million barrels of be. close to a million of gasoline so the flows coming. that would certainly help the current situation but another major problem is water access and many are afraid of the waste water pumping systems failing as they did in texas and florida after hurricane harvey what makes matters worse from puerto rico is the economic crisis that's been dragging on for years and how that may impact the recovery beyond the damage to critical infrastructure a lack of access to clean water could for a health crisis. water fuel to basics very base and people who watch puerto rico's
economy are gobsmacked at how this place is going to recover how else could puerto rico's economic crisis make the aftermath long term especially great so the current economic crisis in puerto rico could pose a lot of problems in the short term and the long term in terms of recovery first of all could easily encourage more people to leave in a mass exodus from puerto rico but when that happens in a back in ten years to happen that's going to hurt the working age population it's going to keep going going down and that as a result creates that so-called brain drain and that affects industries across the board so it won't be enough doctors won't be enough teachers or won't be enough police officers firefighters and so on and it could also actually worsen the high cost of living there in puerto rico it's generally more expensive to live and then in the average u.s. city really and food is more expensive too because of the jones act which we've seen a lot in the news and we'll get to in a little bit but it's only been temporarily waived so you know if it's that if there are changes made to that it could. change but it's expensive there on top of
the fact that there are very little economic opportunities for people that have remained there and then of course obviously the bond and pension drama i mean it's billions of dollars of debt and that's really crushed the economy in fact the porter goes economy in by the end of two thousand and seventeen it's expected to shrink down to the size it was in two thousand so for comparison the u.s. economy has grown about thirty five percent since two thousand and puerto rico has done the exact opposite. lots more about this nine hundred twenty jones act well it's temporary waiver on it actually helped the recovery efforts it's unclear right now and it's kind of honestly a little too early to tell but has been issued in the past like during hurricane sandy in two thousand and twelve president obama waved a temporary waiver of it to help. make it easier for them to go down and bring food and supplies. but some officials are saying it has helped by. they've been able to receive more aid but it's piling up very quickly at the
ports because a lot of the roads are closed so all of these different elements that have been damaged really affect each other and that's why some local officials are saying we kind of need more help and we need more people on the ground or we just need to quicken up getting our driver back and running water and and it's not just the lack of roads but getting the fuel there slows trucks can even get that hospital over them even if the road were open they still can't get from point a to point b. out of there you know a lot of managerial problems there thank you very much. a trade dispute between canada and the u.s. aerospace giant boeing is causing waves across the pond united kingdom seems to be stuck right in the middle of the battle between the two and the government is speaking out about it our tease out somehow of edges and toronto with more lots about this alex what is this fight about because it's getting big it is getting big
and we're talking about a two hundred twenty percent duty on bomb bargee planes the c. series when it comes to the u.s. so that's what the american government said basically was shut down. because boeing is complaining but there's a little bit of history by two hundred twenty percent let's break it down for you here for a moment just so you know exactly how this all started her back in april two thousand and sixteen with a what a major contract to solve two hundred twenty five of these c. series airplanes to delta airline. the deal was a major one i really put on the map when it came to selling to the states two months later and get this the start of before even this deal took place. back injected one billion u.s. dollars into the company in exchange for forty nine point five percent equity stake in that c. series program so that the government now getting involved the promise was made before the deal and then the government fulfilled its promise in february two thousand and seventeen then ottawa the canadian government pledged another about
three hundred million us that works out to about three hundred seventy two point five million canadians to help bombard ga ad with their c. series program and finally may two thousand and seventeen boeing they filed a trade complaint with the us government against canada's aircraft maker work whereas we know it's bombard j. saying that they had an unfair advantage and what is boeing saying what do you mean by unfair advantage simply the money that bombard you received that is government helping out it's comes down to subsidies and that's against world trade organization rules as well as the fact that they're saying that that was dumping by lowering the prices of the c. series jets when they were selling to the states now bombard is not a company without controversy here in canada as well we know that these bailouts people are we've been highly against them they have a history of bailouts history of loans with governments and as we remember probably as you probably remember also at the beginning of this year talking about their exacts getting huge bonuses while they're getting all these hundreds of millions of
dollars from the government so they're not loved in canada either but when it comes to this it looks like you know what the united states might have a reason to be taken off ok well how is the u.k. being affected by this to get that. well it's a huge company it's an international company and that builds parts around the world one of the places that the c. series jet its wings actually are built in northern ireland by belfast so that's a huge thing for northern ireland they're a massive employer there are forty two hundred people employed by bombards which means you know for a city like belfast a city that's gone through a lot of problems in the past decades and it's now economically starting to really see its legs this is a huge part of their economy when you're talking about for four thousand two hundred people the brits have already said you know what we have to stand our ground we have to back on this because this means jobs in this country theresa may have spoken out against boeing's actions as well saying that you know there has to
be a way that we can do this without protectionism there has to be a way to resolve this issue and really the bottom line is that nothing is really written in stone yet in two thousand and eighteen we will know the results from when the u.s. international trade commission either says yes to these two hundred and twenty percent tariffs that we're talking about or duties against bombards when we're talking about dealings between canada and the states when you heard about obviously theresa may believe was last week backpedaling a little bit on the fact that taksin had to come out a bit softer because she's talking about these bombard da contracts trying to keep you know business over northern ireland and trying to keep the jobs talk up because she cannot afford any negative talk about that i'm sure you heard about that what not only the eyes i mean that's a massive part of it but it's going to come to the point where she's saying well you know what boeing we won't be able to do business with you in the future if this is what you're doing to bombard who employs people in our country so i mean yes
she's backed into a corner this is a lot bigger than just the two aerospace companies fighting each other this really does come down to international trade at the highest levels that's right thank you very much. alex and hyla vets coming out us from toronto. if you. work in mortar retail stores are slumping but some are finding unique ways of fighting back former retail giant toys r us may have filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy protection is worth five billion dollars in long term that. but it's got a plan of action with augmented reality good old jeffrey the friendly giraffe mascot will virtually greet customers as they enter the store and then allow them to go fish for sharks take a wildlife safari race a truck in the cars section or head over to the baby doll aisle and adopt one give it a name and take care of it all through a phone or other smartphone device it's building on the go phenomenon we saw last
year only in this case you probably won't be accidentally crossing highways or getting into car wrecks. thanks for watching be sure to catch a boom on direct t.v. we're on channel three two one the r t channel and if you miss us on directv catch us on youtube youtube dot com slash. thanks for watching next time. there's a real irony going. to bring out a responsible voice in the people and there is always well that's what the terms of it's always but it's not something you already know it's still surveillance you feel you have all read well as you and he shows us and trump has used the social you don't really follow the story goes it's garbage it's real genuine it's.
know if the russian state hacked into john podesta emails and gave them to wiki leaks but i do know barack obama's director of national intelligence has not provided credible to support his claims of russia i also know he perjured himself in a senate hearing planned three months before the revelations provided by edward snowden he denied that the n.s.a. was carrying out wholesale surveillance of the us. the hyperventilating corporate media has once again proved to be an echo chamber for government claims that cannot be verified you would have thought they would have learned something after serving as george w. bush's useful idiots in the lead up to the invasion of iraq. it is vitally important that the press remains rooted in a fact based universe especially when we enter an era when truth and fiction are becoming indistinguishable.
is. of success for me i want to. live a fully charged and connected and contributing life for that means charge i want to have energy you know i want to have your energy. and i want to be connected with the people i love my family my friends my team people we serve and i want to make i want to go on making a difference there's this myth that you know if you're really achieving a lot in life you must be miserable you know you must feel like you're scared all the time and work twenty four seventh's that's not true high performers to be able to maintain.
