    DuckDuckGo Antitrust Case & US Obesity Deaths | Friday Afternoon | 9.22.23

    enSeptember 22, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Google's Dominance in Search Under ScrutinyGoogle's deals with phone manufacturers and equipment providers grant them an unfair advantage as default search engine, raising antitrust concerns.

      The ongoing antitrust trial against Google raises concerns about the company's business practices, with DuckDuckGo's founder testifying that Google's deals with phone companies and equipment manufacturers give them an unfair advantage as the default search engine on many devices. Meanwhile, New York Republicans are suing Governor Kathy Hochul over a new law expanding mail-in voting, arguing it removes safeguards and violates the state constitution. Elsewhere, Disney announced a massive investment in parks and cruise lines following financial losses in their entertainment and streaming services. Lastly, Texas Governor Greg Abbott accused the Biden administration of cutting razor wire installed by Texas at the southern border. These stories highlight ongoing debates around competition, democracy, and border security.

    • Border security and wildlife safety issues in Texas and ColoradoGovernor Abbott's Operation Lone Star addresses border security in Texas, but faces legal challenges. In Colorado, hikers need to be aware of moose encounters, while obesity-related heart disease is a growing health concern nationwide.

      There are two significant issues currently impacting communities in Texas and Colorado: border security and wildlife safety. In Texas, Governor Greg Abbott has taken measures to secure the border through Operation Lone Star, which includes deploying more National Guard and installing barriers, but the DOJ has sued the state over a buoy barrier on the Rio Grande. Simultaneously, in Colorado, residents need to be cautious while hiking due to encounters with moose, which have resulted in three incidents this year, including one that hospitalized a woman. Meanwhile, obesity-related heart disease has tripled in the US, killing over 6.6 people per 100,000 annually by 2020. With more than 115 Americans being obese, including 42% of adults and 20% of children, it's a pressing health concern. These issues underscore the importance of addressing various challenges in our communities, whether it's securing borders, ensuring public safety, or promoting healthy lifestyles.
