How the Barrel of Monkeys Can Help You Motivated
"Consider what you can learn from the barrel of monkeys. Now this does amy okay. Barrel monkeys was not popular. When i was a kid. It's more my grandparent's generation. But i had a grandparent and they had a set of barrel of monkeys sitting around that i played with when i was a young child. The concept of barrel of monkeys is that you've got all these monkeys with hands like this okay and they all linked together. You make this chain of monkeys now. The reason i like to use that as illustration as i think that's the best way to set up a community and a lifestyle when it comes to real sin investing or other goals so in my world. I always try to have someone above me. That i'm reaching up to and i'm learning from them and their knowledge is pouring down into me. So that i'm improving. That keeps me humble. I never actually think that. I'm too great when i'm looking up to other people and then i like to have somebody below me that i'm pouring down into them often. The information that came from above that came to me. And i could disseminate it so the people that are hanging below me now that keeps me for becoming down myself because i'm always reminded like hey i have something to offer. I just want to encourage all of you guys to think the same way. You gotta have people above you and you've got to have people below you if there's not people above you then you can start to think that you got it all figured out pride sets in you'll make mistakes and there's only below you then you'll start to think like what's my purpose. Why am i even doing this. And you'll lose some of the humility that comes into play so consider how you can be a monkey and develop your own chain in the barrel of monkeys in the same way that bigger offering

I'm it's just the mind for liberating elaborating from the bear elements of our experienced from the building blocks of our experience. We then build hold worlds and then get meshed in one way or another in those worlds and so there are three main tendencies which lead us in that direction. It's very helpful to become aware of them to distinguish between them and to learn how to free from them if not completely at least to have more wisdom in relating to them when we see them rising to let's basically what poncho these proliferating tendencies of mind it expands in quite a powerful way just the complexity of all lives particularly with regard to how sufferings created and how we can Become a little more free. When i've used the word historically. I must be using the sanskrit version. Because i have often said pro-panchayat it sounds like that. Difference between pauline since group which are very close.

The Inspiration Behind the Simbell Wireless Bell Ringing Simulator
"My guest. Today is st farmer. Who designed and bills the wireless church bell simulator. Hardware symbol steve. My first question is how long have you been ringing. I've only actually been ringing well. Four and a half years. I started in two thousand and sixteen run up to christmas. My wife has been reading for twenty years and that is the one thing that she did that. I didn't met. We had a open as part of the heritage days at the church and she was sure that nobody was going to turn open. Beg me to go along with the tower and have a go at ringing just so that if they had somebody go there and basically i got there within fifteen minutes. I was hooked. What was your experience of learning to ring learning was. I was taught me a very traditional way in that we had our tower captain at the time who basically gave me half an hour every now and then when we could fit in before practices and things and i learnt how to ring as you used to probably set you for two years ago and that was one of the things that made me think richie i need more wrote time and that was the basis of it but of course the issue that you have with bells is the fact. They make an awful lot of noise and the fighters somebody learning to ring and the constant banging manda. I thought we had to do something out of the must be a way of doing it. And that's when i started to look into simulators and what people were doing other people were doing. What did you find to be the two options. At the time the was the the wad system that david bagley made. And then there was another wireless system co. Belfry that tony croft made and i decided that i needed something so i thought that want to put wires in and it was quite expensive as a system for what was really just for one person to learn as i thought i was looking from totally selfish point of view so i went to come tevi croft and he didn't respond to my email and that's the basis of how i got into the whole thing of simulators if you'd actually responded to the email symbol probably wouldn't even exist so i just would have bought a belfi system and learn to know four would have gone

I don't want to work time anymore. What were the things that i did in order for me to make that leap. Well the first thing i had to do was plan i had to plan a lot but it was underpinned by my very first tip slash idea and that is be realistic. So it's about setting yourself.

The Difference Between Compassion and Empathy With Emiliana Simon-Thomas
"How do you define compassion. So i had to find compassion. When i was studying in the laboratory laboratory to defined it in an emotional way it was a specific state. It was the experience that you have. When you encounter suffering Can be in person or even in your mind and you think about some suffering and you feel the urge and you have an intention to do something about it to help to alleviate the suffering that you encounter. that's the experience of compassion as an emotion so that separates from empathy. Which is yeah. Misses the action. Yeah i mean empathy. I think of as kind of necessary but not sufficient for compassion. Empathy is really more simple and it is our ability to resonate with each other and our ability to understand the meaning of another person's emotional expressions. But if you only have empathy you have a lot of other paths. You can go down. That are not compassion. Right you can feel distressed yourself. You can feel. Oh i'm overwhelmed. There's i'm upset in in being confronted with the suffering. You can of suppress any emotional experience that you have that is sort of mirrored from another person and sort of look apathetic or you can kind of meander down the road towards compassion and that means you're not really thinking about yourself anymore right. You're not focused on the potential for something to threaten you or the extent to which your physical experience is Recognizable or familiar as your own pain or suffering. But you sort of channel whatever whatever feeling you have into activating your care. Nurturance systems right. You're you're actually orienting yourself as a care provider as a nurture rather than sort of frenetically worried about the possibility that something could go wrong in in your own right.
European Powers Warn Iran Over Enriched Uranium Metal Production
"Iran has begun the process of producing enriched uranium metal. The un atomic watchdog said yesterday.

Us and european officials made it clear that iran's decision would complicates and potentially torpedo indirect us iranian talks seeking to bring both nations back into compliance with the two thousand fifteen deal which was abandoned by the former us. President donald trump the deal imposed curbs on iran's nuclear program to make it harder for tehran develop fissile material for nuclear weapons in return for the lifting of economic sanctions after trump withdrew.

NFL Bans Dwight Schar From Future Ownership Interest in Any NFL Team
"Minority owners coming in at some point, but he is the he is the sole owner after buying back the minority shares from Dwight Schar, Fred Smith and Bob Rothman. And what was a very contentious uh, I think And this is that I don't know if it's been publicly put out like this, But I think it was a takeover attempt by the minority owners who were looking for a greater evaluation on on their sale of their minority piece, and all of this negativity started to pop up. In the Washington Post started to pop up and and social media. These accusations were thrown out there, all of which, incidentally, Dan Snyder has claimed responsibility for even though he was not directly implicated in any of those things. Um, And the news today is twofold. One that Daniel Snyder is it was fined $10 million. At least the Washington football team was fined $10 million. The clarity on that is that $10 million will go to charities, which which Tania, his wife and Dan will choose. So it's a $10 million fine, but it'll all go to an important cause. The other thing. That I think is not insignificant in this is that Dang Dwight Schar, who was one of those minority owners, and a lot of people believed was involved in the smear campaign on on Daniel Snyder has been banned for life. From the NFL. So, uh, while we while we want to vilified, um some of the things that went on inside the Washington organization, the the campaign It was put out to embarrass and try to force. Mr Snyder to Snell also came to light and again, I'll read it, I'll say it again. Dwight Schar, who was a minority owner, has been banned for life from the National Football League. Take that of what you will. Um, but that's not the story. So a lot of people there's some misconceptions out

Therapist Daniel Ellenberg Explains What Prevents Men From Forming Bonds With Other Men
"What do you think it's in the way of men getting close with other men. I think there's three different areas that are all related in some way but there are also separate one of them is competition and it's interesting that the word competition actually comes from the latin commentary which means to strive together and and what said to me is that a lot of competition actually isn't quite like that is actually much more doggy dogg. Beat the other show your strength dominate. And when you think about that paradigm when you bring that paradigm of winning at all costs into friendship. It doesn't go that well now. So i think that the competitive part of it is really enormous thing and guys don't normally talk about their inner world that they feel competitive with friends or they feel jealousies and i know for me. One of the things that i started doing earlier in my life was i started talking with friends about felt jealous of them which was like totally outline irish to do those types of things and i've found that actually brought us closer to talk about the real things and i. I have a fanatic. I used for intimacy. Because i don't associate it with sexuality intimacy. It can be put. It doesn't have to be the phonetic into me see and so allowing others to see into you and including your vulnerabilities is a way of getting closer but paradoxically and a really competitive model. When you're not showing that you don't wanna show that it's really really hard to get close. So that's one of the things. The second is homophobia. We learned that somehow. If you love other guys you're gay and you see one of the things that gets thrown. Oh you're so you're so you're it's an insult at least and it is a threat to the developing male psyche. And certainly all for being gay if they happen to be not a question about that but when you think about the social control of that is quite profound and the third is fear physical violence that when you get close to guys you know you get really close is you know potentially to say the wrong thing and with some guys in the wrong circumstances there can be actual threats that come your way and so. I think that the three of those acting together have a major negative impact in terms of guys developing relationships with other guys and it's also role model and seeing your father's you know other men knocked necessarily getting close with each other. So i think those are all obstacles to it

The Difference Between Fierce and Tender Self-Compassion With Author Kristin Neff
"Kristin neff. Thanks for coming back on the show. Thanks for having me dallas. Love talking with you. Yes you are. One of my favorite guests in your work has had a significant impact on me. So it's great. Have you back on the show. So let's talk definition for a second. What is the difference in your mind between fierce self compassion and tender self compassion self compassion. Has i call it. A yin a yang aspect right. So there's a way in which self compassion just allows us to accept ourselves with kindness and warmth. It's more of a gentle nurturing energy. The type of energy apparent might have for their child who in the can screaming their head off but apparent loves that child unconditionally. Accept some as they are. and so. that's part of self compassion wheat heavily. Hold ourselves. we hold our pay more nurturing. More warmer understanding but compassion in the broader sense is about alleviating suffering right that really defines what compassion is concerned with alleviating suffering. And although we may need to accept our cells sometimes. We don't want to accept our behaviors or we don't want to accept a situation we're in that's causing harm and that's where fear self compassion comes in fear. Self compassion is the action oriented side of compassion as opposed to just accepting side we ourselves. Hey this this behavior. Doing it's not working for you. You know you need to change it because it's causing you harm or it might be. Hey i want to encourage you to try this new thing or to reach your goals or motivate change. Because i care about you. And i want you to be happy or in terms of situations it might be a kind of like call mama bear self compassion right that protective side of self compassion and says hey you crossing boundaries is not okay. What you're doing. You're treating me unfairly. So for example. I see the black lives matter. Movement served the metoo movement as self compact fear self compassion movements as people. Rise up. Feel empowered to say. Hey that's not okay. You're harming me so a lot of it is where the compassion is aimed and we need both in order to be healthy and whole.

No no your your life is you can listen to tunes but your life is forfeit. They'RE NOT GONNA they're not gonNA retrofitted with a crumple-zones and roll cages airbags. It's thirteen hundred euros on this random site I found on the Internet. That's roughly fifteen hundred dollars. Charge a yearly fee BMW. I mean like a good aftermarket like you know doubled in Carpool. Unit is six hundred dollars. Five hundred dollars. I kind of in that ballpark. When you let the multiplier that's not that bad of price. No it really isn't That's another thing we bring that I forgot to mention. I heard news via twitter today that Marco you and I are not going back to buy your next. Bmw because European delivery has apparently ceased which really really bummed me out. Yeah I thought it was interesting like yes. Be Use European delivery program for North American customers and and I think it was interesting. Basically one of the reasons that the foreign people dug up was basically that like most. Bmw's sold north. American customers are SUV's now and almost all SUV's are made not in Europe. Like at least the one North America are made in North America the various factories somewhere in the US and Canada. I but So like it doesn't really make sense like you know. Those were never getting European delivery. Because I couldn't because they weren't made in Europe and so the percentage of sales has North American customers keeps going more and more towards models weren't made in Europe anyway so they're basically saying like they had very few people still doing European delivery and so they're they're earning it which is unfortunate the kind of the end of an era although BMW north. America has historically represented an average of two thousand European delivers deliveries annually. Such deliveries have declined in recent years to under five hundred based on these trends and long-term evaluation. Bmw Group will end the European Delivery Program in twenty twenty and cease accepting reservations as of this week. Or maybe next week but soon it's kind it's a shame like it's one of those things that it was so. I'm so lucky did it. It was so fun this is you know if you want to hear us. We back when we recorded neutral. We kind of ended with us. Having gone to European delivery for my m-5 five and family. It was great and it was a fantastic trip and was so cool the fact that you could order a car from BMW. In America and then go to Europe they would give you this whole like factory tour. Walk through they would give your car. You could drive it around Europe for like a week and then just drop it off at any of these like five or six places in Europe and then they would ship it to America and you know a couple of months later you could pick up at your dealer. That was incredible. L. End because of some weird like tariff loophole. It was cheaper like you would save a few thousand dollars on the cost of the car kind of pay for the trip and so it. Kinda worked out that lived. The trip was like low to no cost in the grand scheme of things. Because you were saving all this money on the car it was just kind of amazing thing and it always kind of seemed like this shouldn't be possible. How is this? How is this like legal and profitable for anybody at like? How do they work out with tariffs that you're picking up? A new car meant for a different country in this country. That is not certified to run in. And you're allowed to drive it around for a little while and put on a boat somehow like this should never have worked but it did and it was amazing and so we got to do it. It is a shame that it's ending but it is kind of amazing that it ever existed. It was incredibly incredibly fun time. And I'm so glad that that Aaron and I were were able to do it with you guys. It was really preposterous in kind of stupid. A lot of ways like let's fly across the planet to pick up a car and use it for a and in our particular case we like drove arguably more than we actually stayed still but oh my gosh it was such a fun trip and yet the the next last episode of neutral kind of the end of the regular season of neutral if you will which is episode twelve We dragged John. Through all of it in and it was such an incredibly great experience and it made it made me feel like a million bucks being part of this experience and really. I was just a hanger on like I had no reason to be there but the BMW people are still super nice and it was such an it was so so cool and so fun and a once in a lifetime experience for sure even before they shut down and now with it being shut down. It's even more so so I want to call attention to it. It's just kind of bums me out because so cool but you can still do it with Porsche. I think you can still do it with Volvo. Saab I don't even think exists anymore so everyone loves getting. They're getting in their fun. New Volvo and driving around the number ring offers fun. You've you don't have to worry. Gets TESLA LETS YOU DO California? Pick up where you can pick up your Tesla and attend to where it was painted before we leave the car play topic. Can we just laugh? At how amazing this single din unit looks. This is like your car. Stereos have the two different heights they can be and the Double Din is the regular looking one. That has a reasonable size screen. Then they also offer a single one back when cars were only radios or maybe a radio cassette good fit in that size and that's it that size they have a car play screen and it looks like the tiniest it looks almost like it's small smaller than the original iphone to apple washes next to each other. And that's your car place green half inches. Apparently you get you gotTa squinting at the navigation screen. Can you see anything on it? It's too small carplay. You why is not particularly scalable?

"Listening and everything else and then get a beer and your hands are now free because you have a headset so you can use your newly freed hands to have a beer that makes it a little bit more bearable Johnny. Other thoughts Margot so worked up about a conference call and considering I can't even remember the last time he would have had to do one for quote unquote. I have multiple ones per day. So I'm in the thick of it right now. No it's what it is. Is that now? The only way I can hang out with my friends is via conference calls so I went from not having to ever do them to the only way. I can socialize and that sucks. It's way worse than in prison socializations. You can just tell your friends to put on headphones. Though it's hard to tell your co workers that anyway my my advice would be much more pragmatic and lower level. I know the question was. How do I improve the audio quality but practically speaking in all of my various video conferences every single day of the week? I'm just begging. People like not be in the middle of a tunnel tunnel with diesel trucks. When they're like yourself and you're not talking. Everybody knows that but apparently not everybody knows that and like all like I don't care about the audio quality I don't care how far away you sound. I just want to understand your words and sometimes there's just so much noise like a constant static like there's a giant like fan blowing on the microphone like what is that where are you. What is that noise like? It doesn't make any sense and it's not like it annoys you. 'cause you're bothered by noise it annoys you because they speak and you can't understand their words because there's too much noise. I just want to be able to understand. I don't care how good you sound. I don't care how distant you I don't care if you sound like you're in the far corner of a giant public restroom. I just need to understand your words which means everyone else mute and you somehow have enough signal to noise ratio for me to hear the words coming out of your mouth. That's all I want. Yeah because like keep in mind like there's there's going to be a little earlier there's going to be so much processing done by the software to your voice that the difference between higher and Mike are mostly going to be crushed. Most people are not going to really be able to hear those through the terrible protocol at the using so as long as noise ratio is. What's important here as long as people can understand you and your speaking clearly and it's not to echo in the room and you're not riding a motorcycle at the time you're on the conference garage stuff like that like you also want to avoid the problem of like like. I got this because whenever I do a video. Chat which again is not frequent normally but it has occasionally happen for various. Somebody wants to talk and let's talk about podcast standards or whatever it happens. Whatever I do a call I always just use. Podcast microphone because it's configured as like the input to my computer. It's very here. Why wouldn't I use it? I have headphones. It's always ready to go so I swing it over on the big boom arm. I put on my headphones. It has popped in front of Microphone. And every single time every like whoa look at you fancy and it becomes like a thing like it's like a thing that everyone has to mention like the other night. I did hang out with my friends and same thing. It's like. Oh whoa look at better than all of us. And it's like that's the kind of attention that you might not want or it might not be appropriate in certain contexts for you to be like the fancy person with the big set up selling. Maybe you don't want the cowboy hat you. That's another reason why I suggest like a headset is a really good balance because a headset gives you like for the purposes of a video chat program ninety percent of the quality or more as the best. Pakistan if you could possibly have but with a smaller low profile thing that no one's going to notice and call out and draw attention to yourself with so stick with the headset range of things. If you don't want people to be commenting on it constantly and finally I will also say that. This is you know typically these days. We're not just doing audio calls. Video calls and the best thing you can possibly do for video calls is get some light on your face for the love of God. Get some light on your face. Most people doing video calls do it in an UNMODIFIED office UNMODIFIED room. That usually has a big light above and or behind them they get back lit and you can see their face very darkly shadowed and there's bright light shining behind them. That's never good. Do whatever you can to get light hitting your face so get light behind your computer above your computer. Whatever it is. Get light on your face. It doesn't have to be fancy right now if you go out right now and try to buy like studio lights. They're all sold out everywhere of course because everyone's doing this like you don't need that. It can be a lamp. Just move it to you. Know be next to or behind your computer like somehow get more light on your face and get more in front of your face than there is behind your face. So whether that's turning on a light behind him and then turning off the light behind you you know whatever you can do do that because that will also like in addition to sounding reasonable on the video calls you will look better than everyone else in the video you will. You will be clearer to see and cleared understand. You look more professional if you have just some kind of light on your face during video calls all right.

"Dollars more and it's significantly faster at twice the ports You know it has much brighter. Pro Screen the air screen is kind of dim. That's actually better computer for one hundred and fifty bucks with otherwise pretty comparable specs. So we're not talking about like super cheap computers in any case. But they haven't been that. That is not new here so the value argument if you're looking at a thirteen inch macbook pro. It's probably not going to be a good value no matter what you do if you want to evaluate math lineup. It's the air or the Base Model. Sixteen inch otherwise. I think they've done a really good job here. You could argue whether the two port thirty inch models should even still exist and I think they only hit price points otherwise go for the four hundred again. Yeah as you know. The reason people are complaining about the lower end. Which by the way Jason Snell in slack while we were recording. They've amusing about the continued absurdity. That apple sells to computers both called the thirteen inch macbook pro. That aren't really the same computer them more or less being in the same case they've always use like different ships and had different performance trade offs in different prices and one of them to not have a touch barn. It's always been kind of weird and so here. We are again in the same spot where we've got these this bifurcation in the thirteen inch line. That is definitely not obvious from a consumer perspective unless you actually look at the specs and understand more about it. And in this particular case they upgraded the the high end one to be what everybody wanted and they upgrade loan on yesterday fix the keyboard but they didn't really change much else about that is you know. It's it's weird that they didn't upgrade upgrade the the the CPU the internal essentially of the lower end thirteen inch and that's making people scratch their head a little bit about it. You don't WanNa feel like you're getting you know. Apple Apple always does with terminology of Eighth Gen tenth. Jen processor right. It's not a ten meter processor processor. But the the Thames. Gen One is and it's the same one that had before and yes you get double the storage and yes you get the good keyboarding and so on and so forth but it's the one you kind of an ugly duckling arguably the escape was also always kind of an ducking unless you really loved that always in which case and so like the comparison that I've been thinking about a lot of people think about us like and you just used it yourself comparing all right. So how do I choose between an air and the low end thirteen because there are sort of in each other's space right you know? There's the obvious physical differences. You can look at them and see what the physical differences are and Ritchie and his new Youtube Channel. Checkout enumerated I think basically all the changes the significant differences between the macbook air and the low in thirteen. The low end thirteen is point. Three pounds heavier displays twenty percent brighter and it's P. Three. It's got a better speaker and microphone. Setup in the air the macbook air has the tenth jen processor but the thirteen inch does not. It has as Gen The thirteen inch has a worse. Gpu and it can't drive the pro display but the macbook air can which is again something. You wouldn't expect like wait a second. The the cheaper non pro model can drive the protas blacks. The are but the supposed thirty inch. Microprobe can't it's because it's older and older chips. Is Anybody driving approach play? Dr With a Mac Bulgare it. Just it I'm just saying like a difference if it's a SPEC difference the worst. Gpo people do care about because it's not like worse by a little bit like if you do anything involving the which may be you do. You're doing being held but then the next day is just a side effect of having the GPO. Doesn't that display stream compression one hour less battery life on the thirteen inch and of course thirteen inches? It's such bar which again like the escapee is like well. Is that a plus or minus right. So there are differences the differences like aside from the display stuff and the speaker and Mike. Everything really is in favor of the air because there's newer the got the new stuff there has got the new GP and CPU. The air uses less power presumably with the new. The era has displaced during compression. Re All those things makes that low and thirteen kind of ugly but that said there you can look at these differences and make the decision that you want about it. The point is if you look at these trade offs and say actually I do want pro because it has these advantages has better cooling or at the eighth. Gen are runs the APP that I want better than attention. One because of thermal throttling. Whatever you decide you want. It's perfectly good computer because now the keyboard is fine again. It's just you can actually pick products based on the specs and not have to have of these weird conversations about with the exception of maybe having about such bar. There's no more sort of like caveats that you're just desperate for everybody to know but I think the fact that this one hasn't been updated still makes that thirteen inch product the most treacherous for the casual consumer because there are differences legitimate differences. Like you know sensible differences but that are not obvious by looking at them in the store because they all look the same right so hopefully this weird low end. Thirteen inch either goes away entirely which I would love. 'cause I don't want there to be a to poor computer called pro but that's just me or eventually. Gets the internals updated when you know? New Chips are available. That are not the exact same chips that are in high in one so if I were to buy something tomorrow which I'm not but would I buy you'd get the high end one with all the goodies and you'd be happy right because that's what you always wanted. You wanted to thirteen inch size computer. That has all of things and has all the ports and his fast and has a good keyboard and this is it ten nanometer Intel processor like Gpu double the storage. That's nothing across. His whole line is the whole you get twice a storage for the same price against their starch. Licensors a stupid but hey it's good right and improves the value. It's it's everything you said. You wanted ver the past many years when you were. You know waffling over. What the buy me ogling now. Yeah I mean I really want one really badly. I don't WanNA spend the money on at this particular moment but I want one My adorable is just. It's it's it's all I love it. I still love it but it's old and it's slow and I want something faster newer. I still love it except that I've hated every moment of using it but I love it. I love it has all these problems. It's slow at the keyboard breaks all the time. It's horrible and the one part of the Houston in the but I love it. I absolutely have. I told you how much money sitting on the couch reading slack with it. I'm sure it's great since element reading not writing I could type on. It works fine. Maybe not so much so great for X. Code Typing is also difficult getting all over the place you know. I was thinking when Margaret was celebrating. The banishment of butterfly keyboard from Apple's laptop line. I was looking at my laptop off of this. I was thinking you know what I think I'm in a I'm in the butterfly. Second Honeymoon period or the second window the butterfly because remember like this is my work laptop and it was twenty seventeen and had the butterfly keyboard and eventually my space bar stopped working right and then I got it replaced on the repair extension program and of course a small percentage of people. Yeah exactly. I'm one. I'm one of the small percentage and when they replaced it of course because a laptop is designed in a way they also gave me a brand new battery and so after using his laptop for two years at work. And you know really hurting the battery doing webex meetings with video and having a spin up just like I got a brand new battery two years into the life of the laptop for free and I only had to be without it for like a week so and my keyboard works again so I have a working keyboard and the battery. It's like new because it is new like three cycles on. I got it so I'm actually not that. I'm glad that I have a butterfly keyboard. But if the butterfly keyboard didn't break my battery would be terrible so if I were to buy one which one would I get? I would think either the two Giga the two Gigahertz five twelve or the two gigahertz terabyte. 'cause I twelve in my dorm I don't meet it but I want. I don't want to be in a position where I'm like. I made the decision a couple years back to just get one terabyte for laptops because I have a similar situation as you. It's not my primary computer so I don't need the biggest store in the world because I'm not keeping everything on it but it is nice to have a bunch of storage for you know not only development stuff because code stuff is massive. You always need tons of space for the EXCO itself and the Betas and the SDK's and everything else and then also you know when you're going on a trip or something when we convention do that do that again. I know I like to bring a lot of download video files Casey. I can only imagine what you bring with you. I I like having a terabyte and most times. I have approximately three hundred gigs free. So like less than five hundred so I know that was generally the right. Move to go to the terabyte and I think thirty two gigs Ram. That's four hundred bucks. Is it worth the two hundred dollars. For the three hundred megahertz and the now the additional turbo boost. No but I always pay. It's it's it's really not most of the time but I because when the increment is that small even though I know we'll probably heard my battery life. I just I just pay for laptops. It's to a little bit more longevity. Because they're the kind of computer that it feels slow before everybody else so I would. I would do it. There's not probably good reason. You probably shouldn't but that's just me. I usually don't get the high. Ram Up Sean. Laptops Sixteen is my ram number for laptops. Even though I get high ram on desktops because on the desktop I leave this thing you know. The time is very very long and I'm leaving all sorts of huge things. Open all the time like right now I. I have like numbers pages. In addition to you know I have slack dash the documentation viewer. I sometimes podcast with ex code and simulator running an open which. I probably shouldn't that happens. Sometimes forecast itunes like I've so many things open right now because it's my desktop. I do everything here on a laptop that I. I'm using as a secondary slash travel workstation. I'm usually more focused on what I'm doing. I'm not usually running everything all at once. Instead of I'm like I'm just echoed echoed like you know male and safari or whatever as opposed to like all sorts of different logic in photoshop. All being open at the same time like I often do here so on laptops. I've been going sixteen GIG for years and it's been totally so four hundred dollars for thirty two gigs to me is not worth at all.

You're going to buy or have you already bought. No I'm not by anything right now. Not because I don't want but because I shouldn't go anywhere you're not going anywhere. I actually said to Erin earlier today or yesterday. I said you are You know I really want to buy a two thousand and three thousand dollar laptop to go to the grocery store. I'm not going to and do work that I'm doing their right but before we talk about. Wbz There's been date announced it is selfishly inconvenient because I'm supposed to hypothetically be on vacation that week as it turns out. I'm sure I won't be on vacation that week. Because of Corona virus but nevertheless apple is hosting their worldwide developer conference beginning June twenty second so it stands to reason that on the twenty second will be the keynotes And then the rest of it will be all virtual including apparently labs which. I'm really really curious how that's GONNA work but We have a date and it's June twenty second. Yeah of the information in the announcement is not especially new With the exception of a whole bunch of stuff about how to student things will work. There's a whole bunch of new student things they're doing and apparently the only way you can get a WDC. Twenty twenty jacket is by winning one of the student things that you can do but for for non students for kind of the rest of us. The only real news here that we didn't already know is the dates and they did mention labs existing and they said that it was free. We still don't know. I think the big question is like. How are the labs going to work exactly? That's a pretty big question But ultimately this is good. I'm glad to see them. You know laying out a little bit more trickling information as they are ready to. You know this is good for now. This is kind of all we need to know. Anyway I mean. No one needs to make travel plans. All we know now is like all right set aside some time during the week of June twenty second. Because you're gonNA PROBABLY WANNA do some of the sessions or if however the lab's work it's probably GonNa be time based Somehow get some of those labs who knows But you know again. Glad to see we're making progress. We're getting towards this thing. And it seemed at their heads on right and they like it. I think it would have been weird. If they were like all right online reduc- five hundred dollars in like that. That would been strange. So you know. The pricing seems right of being free The focus on a lot of students stuff is fairly typical like they seem to be amping it up a little bit every year. And that's that's a very good And yeah otherwise. It looks good We'll see we'll see how it goes just to not give an end date or I'll just assuming it's a week as normal but they didn't say that anywhere do they. I don't think so and that's WH- keep in mind like this is so new. There are so many assumptions that we have and they might have based on how. It's always been done that we can break. You know and one of the assumptions like does it. Why does it have to be a week? It can be three days or it can be all summer. Who CARES I it? It doesn't really need to have a certain ending date. The only thing that really needs to end is like at some point. The people doing it at apple have to get back to the rest of their jobs. But that doesn't mean it can't be like nine days or four days like you know it could be anything within a certain reasonable range and it would be fine. And of course the sessions air at certain times or on. At certain times they'll get released a certain times but the sessions are available forever. Like you can go on go online now and look back up to like probably at least three or four years ago and they started putting them online you can. You can go back and get previous year session videos. You can search the transcript. You can look at sample code from previous years so like these things have long lifetimes so the only question is like when are these sessions released and because they no longer have this like travel oriented in-person event if they can't release everything they want to release in five days they don't have to? They can take a little bit longer. They can release it over a few weeks if they want to if some. Api is not ready yet. They can wait till it is ready. You know they've been doing that. They would make these little mini presentations and they haven't technology announcements. Were like miniature. Wdc sessions for the past. Several years of those those tend to be shorter but still. That's that's a format to like the marketing for this. One is a bunch of emojis sense behind laptops inside.

I guess I could have put the card in the raspberry Pi four kind of like followed along. You know what I mean just gas. Just watch a youtube video or what he lets drew. I didn't think about that. That's actually a pretty good answer. I'm annoyed because that's a pretty good answer marco. Do you know what the what I feel. Like is the correct answer. Like how would you have handled this because I think you might now? I think there's probably some like configure file you can edit or some like file you create like touch a filed a certain path on the card you can tell it like just automatically figure what this or enable ssh or something like that. That's that's the solution I would look for is something I can modify on this. Sd Card to make it automatically configure enough to the point where I can in his AAC slogan I will award you full credit. Even the you're missing a step but I still award you full credit. Hold hold down a key on the keyboard that you just connected. No no no no. So what I ended up doing was I used an APP called on my Mac to basically reset in reformat the St Card to actually have the OS already on it so not have noobs on it but instead have the full installation on it at that point. This is where Marco you're exactly right you can put a file or touch file called SSh into the root of that file system and it will automatically enable h when it boots however this thing does not have an Ethernet port on it. How do I connect to my Wifi? Which is not exactly open. Open up for two seconds. No one's GONNA attack you.

I haven't even attempted to mount these little sensors so to speak on the garage door or anywhere near it but my hope is that it will at least be able to get close enough. Maybe I mean like what kind of tolerance is. We HAVE APPLE STYLE. Iphone tolerances adverts sub millimeter precision with comes to rest and exactly the same spot every time. I guess we'll find out we will find out that that's part of tomorrow's mission as well if I if I'm procrastinating on doing them yet Image Related Work and memory related. Work than. I'll be trying to mount all this and see if I get that. We have some other followup from Colin mckellar who wrote in with regard to arm predictions. So we had said last episode that we couldn't remember when each of us had wagered the arm transition. If it happens would happen. And Colin wrote that an episode two hundred eighty five starting at about three minutes and forty eight seconds into the episode and this was from the thirtieth of July twenty teen We had meets predictions and according to Colin and I didn't verify if this was exactly right but I take I take them at their word I had said some time in five to ten years from two thousand eighteen which puts that at twenty three twenty twenty three twenty eight with the first Mac definitely by two thousand twenty three. I think the context was when with the transition start. When would it be done? John said you said it would be done in ten years which is twenty twenty eight with a fast transition once it starts however an episode three hundred six at about nine thirty six minutes. Apparently you had said you'd be surprised if there were no Max. By Twenty Twenty. One Mark was the most Aggressive and bold. You had said the first one within two years which would put that at about mid mid this year and the last Intel MACs sold within five years. Which would be about twenty twenty three and then finally calling also noted that on the talk show Gruber Upset Two hundred twenty seven. Gruber had noted that he think it'll be announced last year with a transition this year. So we'll see what happens. I feel pretty good about that. I I I think this summer is probably too soon as I said. At the beginning of my range at But that's not by that much I'm guessing it's probably going to be at the earliest. Possibly this fall at the latest probably next fall problem with all these predictions as they were like in two thousand eighteen ish and that's a little bit too close because by then we had like rumors and we all. We were all informed by the same stories. Coming out of leaks type stuff gang at Apple. It's difficult. The predictions that are that are close to the event we start getting. Some real information is not just hunches. That's why we're that's why we're all clustered around this kind of thing. It's just a question of. How long do we expand? I remember this conversation but I imagine my ten year thing was like well like one mackinaw hold on for a long time presumably Mac pro. Who knows like so? Could you know what I'm saying like by ten years? It's got to be done but I was basically probably railing against there was the idea that they're going to permanently. Keep like the Mac pro eighty six or something and I just don't see that happening so the other thing we had talked about at some point in the past and I. We didn't talk about this last week. Did we what is going to be the first to go arm. We've talked about it before you know we've absolutely talked about it before I'm saying what do you think? Now I mean before I think we I think we said the twelve inch which no longer exists and it could come back exist again right like I could come back as that. I think if I had to guess I'M GONNA get the map book air now. I don't know if it's going to be a single like you say is going to be one. Mac I mean I suppose it could. There's no reason but like obviously we're thinking laptop because that makes the most sense and then it's just a question of which laptop could it be? Laptops I still kind of rooting for that thing. They have apple. Hasn't that in a while? They've been much more conservative. Where you pick a guinea pig machine you do. It eventually rolls out to the other products right but I kind of miss the days when they were. Just guess what. Here's our new line of arm-powered laptops and it's all of them or it's the air that their macro and then we'll talk about later and sixteen inch. It's just three computers. Apple could do it. So that's not my prediction. But that's what I'm rooting for my prediction. There in the current line of its own assay. You know I would say the same but mark was really messed with my mind by saying it's something new I I wonder if it would be something new. It could be the I said the twelve inch said that we just mentioned the twelve inch could come back in the form of a new Fan Lewis. Right th. That's what I'm talking about like. I don't know if he would necessarily be the twelve inch but it wouldn't surprise me if there's some sort of new thing. I la the air when it was brand new or perhaps the adorable when it was brand new something. Ios Laptop and is laptop. You never know things could get crazy. I mean could also argue though that like the eleven inch ipad with various keyboard options that are now available satisfies a lot of that need for a super tiny laptop with like that was previously saw twelve inch but ultimately like this is the reason. I guess the Medicare is that it's just such a massive hit. It hit such a sweet spot of needs for most people pretty well satisfied the really the one area that the map air really is not so great at is CPU performance. And so that's the area. Where arm could really help. They're like it's not so great and see performance because they need a super low wattage part from Intel to fit that chassis and thermal design and until like the best until can do with that wattage. I bet apple could do better. And no one's going to argue against the getting more battery life as well right so it's a crowd pleaser. That computer put an arm in that thing. And no one's going to question why this computer exists in what the benefits might be. Yeah I immediately like day one. An arm macbook air. I would buy it immediately. Like 'cause the car Medicare again. It's it's wonderful in many ways. It really is an amazing size. Like even even the previous one with the butterfly keeps. I never bought one but I handled one a few times like in a store and like people would pick it up and play with it and it felt great. It's a great feeling. Form factor that just the size and the wedge shape really feels good and they've done a good job with the other like physical stuff like the hinge and everything too but like. I love my sixteen inch and I'm glad I have it most of them using it but I can't deny there is a very strong appeal of like a super small laptop that can still somehow make a good balance of screen size and power and everything else and the current air is a little bit too slow. We'll get to this later. We're talk about Jiang's current air is a little bit too slow for me like I. I would feel that pretty frequently but an arm. Version could plausibly. Be Faster enough to really close that gap between it and the current pros or even surpass them the other angle and this is the the other like the second most likely or maybe maybe the tide as if you think about you know we're keeping like which computer would benefit most from our and where does it make sense to have arm. Yada Yada Yada all factors but the other factor is like okay but this will be the first one so I was going to have the most growing pains. You Really Wanna put those growing pains and those compromises and explain it to buyers are most popular product or. I think this is what they do with or do you want to instead. Put it in the sixteen inch just because so few people by that and the people who buy what they're getting into in terms of whatever ambulation there might be your compatibility concerns. You know what I mean to let the the more expensive lower volume computer be the first one just to shake out all the kinks get it settled because by putting it in the macbook air. There's probably bestselling Mac than now. You have this thing that you have to explain to people especially if you don't sell the x eighty six one anymore. It's like oh I was gonna get a Mac but here the software right anymore. Something or other. That's the risk with doing it on your most popular to begin with doesn't mean they're not GonNa do it just the opposite argument and the way that you could end up having it in the top End Laptop. I right put it in the Mac pro I if the first one they make a sixty four but I'm not holding my breath for that you know if you'll permit me to go back a step. I forgot to mention a small tail of low..
"$10" Discussed on Accidental Tech Podcast
"I have some bad news. I've just been notified. The email from apple subjects lined your apple news channel. No it hasn't been updated in this. Is Marco Dot Org? We noticed that you have not published Marcus at Org channel in three months or more your channel be removed in one week period. Oh well good. Cre- regards the Apple News team. Oh well. It doesn't say that if I publish now it'll get me out of this. It just says you're moving a week period like there's no if you don't publish got the same notice but the but they're notice said if you call there's something in a reactivated maybe I'm wrong. I think that was Dana Jacket. But I don't know anyway. It's the market in channel. I don't care I like I. I don't know how many first of all I published. My channel just doesn't RSS Feeds submitted to them and my regular ours is feed. I don't have any special apple news tags. So I I think they were deprecating s base channels anyway aren't they deprecating them or something anyway kept up that. I tried to do the same thing and something must be wrong about my rss feed because they always refused it for reasons. I never quite understood and I didn't care enough to fix it and nobody has ever ever ever asked me about it now. To be fair I probably have one tenth of your readership but nevertheless I can't remember a time that anyone was came in. Can you put that National News? I honestly would be surprised if my readership could be divided evenly into tents like I might have eight people reading it in Apple News. I think it's going to be a very small number. Never liked that apple news APP when I never tried to get. My annually updated blog into it for multiple reasons. Well DARN GONNA lose all those eight page. I don't even measure pages anymore. How did they even show up? Like how would you tell someone can travel news? Have Their user agent. I assume there. There's probably at least like a crawler user agent and I would assume that every time they view the page. Maybe if we're going to report after sign up for like I because I don't think it's actually making a web request to you weeks time right. You have to go to the Special Apple Webpage with no API and you have to look at. You have look at a graph where they round things. Yeah right I have to go to like apple web connect or something and and look at only opt in stats for people who viewed my content. And Yeah I don't even I don't even look like I don't have logs enabled. I don't even have google analytics enabled anymore haven't for years. I had like when I publish something on my site. I have absolutely no idea how many pages gets and it's incredibly liberating like. I highly recommend anybody out there who like has stuff online remove the counters. You will be shocked how great it feels or just have no make you. Don't worry about speaking of apples like websites where you supposedly can go to see some kind of number. You would think that the one web system they would have that would be accurate thorough fairly. Well vetted would be stuff related to the APP store because that's real money If you don't have a free APP it's real money traveling back and forth and real money. Usually people are accounting for the real money but boy they you know they not make it easy to figure out what's going. I mean maybe this is just not understanding money. Granted I'm not. I'm not an accountant. I don't understand. The world of finance is very confusing. But I have to APPs the the second most simple thing I can imagine doing during any a given pay period. I'M NOT GONNA say month because I know finances too complicated for pedestrian concepts like months any given pay period. How much money did I make off of one of my aps? But there's no tell that I mean they have a report that supposedly gives you an answer but the answer is wrong and I know that because for one pay period I only had one month one APP and so I could say now. Run the report and tell me. How much did that one APP make during that period and it's different than the amount they paid me? This is their system. I'm never going to know how this works. It's close it's like within two percent like maybe refunds or something. You're kidding so I run the reports and I download them and I keep them. But it's just like I don't understand why these numbers not match up in the end. The money they give me the money they give me and I trust the dust the money. They're supposed to be giving me but you know. Try running those reports doesn't make any sense. Yeah it's so two things number one I recommend using figures is a paid service is not an ad but yeah I have found is the best way to kind of make sense of apples weirdo reporting and provide useful graphs and everything. I've been using them for a long time. But the F. is also does not match the amount actually received from apple against US sales they also have the payments area. The payments usually car able to derive what it actually means right but I I get one. I don't do what you do which I should've which is like one apple. Id APP right. So I have my two APPS under one appleaday so they pay me some amount and some of that is attributable to last and some of it's attributable different center. How much free chap I mean again. You can run the report like pass filter by parent. Apps that it's in their software and then they give you a graph that's rounded and then you can download accelerator has exact number five hundred decimal places but it's off. It's so hard to just try to solve them. Figure IT OUT. Sometimes it's a few cents or whatever just annoys me. Yeah that's why like back forever. When I had that stupid idea to have some kind of like pay overcast dollars a month and then all split it up between the podcast you listen to and distribute it to them like. I was thinking about doing that kind of scheme before. Podcasters told me they don't want that a surprise nobody wants to be getting in the way of them and their money. I should know that before because I'm the same way but I for some reason I didn't think about that anyway. So one of the problems with that plan is assuming had to take at purchase because otherwise apple would never allow it not only thirty percent But also I would have no good way to to account for like how much money that I actually receive from user. Id One two three four this month. 'cause you get that lump sum payment and you can't actually know like you can't you? There's no way to correlate a user. Id to an amount of money you definitely received because there's so many different exceptions and there's things like refunds cancellations there's foreign currency exchange messes everything up the exchange. The exchange stuff is like all those things that are often could entirely different exchange rates because the reporting that what you got paid what the exchange rate was at the moment of the Blah Blah Blah. Theory the big finance agreement but then the reporting could be different. It's very confusing. Yeah and like the whole reason. Why early the whole the whole basis of a system like that would be like? I need to know when you know for your seven dollars. You know how to split it up between the PODCAST. You listen to the whole this actually plays into the whole world of big services like youtube premium or read. Whatever it's called this month Or spotify or apple music anything where like the customers pay a flat rate and that gets distributed based on whatever they listen to like to artists or whatever the way those work is incredibly scam prone because they can't do it either they also don't track. Your five dollars does not get split between the five artists. You listen to this month. Everyone's five dollars a month goes into a giant pool and they just track number of listens so it doesn't matter if you listen to five artists this month and bought somewhere in Russia to one hundred thousand artists this month. Your money's pulled together first and then it's divided up by views so you might think that you are helping like the three bands you listen to a lot. You only listener three and spotify this month or whatever but no. You're not helping them at all like you'd be a lot more if you left everything streaming all day twenty four seven like and there's this whole ecosystem of scams and click farms and all this other crap like increase view counts and time spent listening stuff like that to skim off more of the pool than what they actually have earned. It's a whole thing and of course I didn't want to deal with any of that and my stupid plan wouldn't have wouldn't have really worked that way anyway but the reason why no one does that is because it's too hard to track how much money you actually got from each individual person each month and in the end you're trusting the same company to do accounting on itself right. It's all sort of like an honor system right so I mean they have no particular reason until they start getting pay off the record. Companies to use them lingo from the seventies or whatever but like apple doesn't have any particular reason to lie to you about how much money you're making right but it's also just well you know like that's my like my instinctual. I A feeling when the APP store was announced that people are going to stop receiving checks from customers and start. Receiving checks signed by Apple. It seems like it's the same thing but it's not. It's way that used to though it used to be for the first two or three years of the APP store you would get paid in wire transfers from I think seven or so different places around the world from various apple subsidiaries for different regions. So every month you would get seven wire. Transfers six of which were foreign wire transfers so depending on your bank account you might be paying like hundreds of dollars a month and wire fees and then you have to resolve all right. Y- like seven different deposits and it was crazy setup and unfortunately a couple of years and they fixed it to just have one direct deposit and that I got to. I got to this last pay period. I got to apple. Deposits L. Really I don't understand the other APP actually. Yeah it's one per apple. Id because you you'll have the one. I'm selling both roosting. I I have have received payments months when both were for sale and I got one payment Right this time. I got to payments which signed like they want to send me three payments for payments money. Just mysterious I just noticed them as separate line items in my bank account. I'm like That's funny where they send the. It's the right amount. If you add them together you know there it is. That's all weird. I'm still angry about the fact that I couldn't change my company named I complain about that. On the show at some point now was so angry about it when it happened but by the time we recorded. I chilled out and realize it doesn't actually matter but boy in the moment I was angry I actually sent the closest ever gotten to send during an angry email was replied to some helpful. Person was trying to tell me what I wanted to do. Was NOT POSSIBLE THOUGH. Those like this is dumb so angry. I got an email literally for. This is dumb spitting fire there. John Thumbs down. I just like I was angry but but I didn't WANNA say something. That was angry but like what can I say? That's not based on emotion but his true. I'm like you know what this is. Actually it is truthful statement. I'm talking about is since I had just freshly signed up for you know my developer coundon all that stuff remember it at some point during the process. The something you guys might not remember this because know that you signed up Margaret. This didn't even exist. It was like Oh and by the way as you're clicking through these things type and stuff in boxes if you'd like your practice show up on the store like with a different name that's visible to customers. Type that name here and at the time I signed up I was doing just me like my name right and so now I don't want that right. Just Johnson Accuses. Find Chopin the developer in the store and I did that for a while and eventually amend myself company and switch it over to that and that took like a month and a half to get through all that red tape. And I'm like and then I went to the APP store and I realized that my name was no longer visible..

"Right boy. Do we need this good news today? I need this good news today. First of all there has been such a rush to buy stamps from the post office. That it's taken them awhile. It's going to take a few days longer and I I like. I clicked to go buy stamps. And it's like hey thanks for supporting the post office because of a huge rush on stamps. It's GonNa take an extra day or two to get your stamps to you. And I'm like that is fucking okay. Post Office I love your face so go and buy stamps. Don't mail them yet just for the future or you know right some cards to your friends. I wrote a bunch of postcards. Saying congratulations to The judge Jill one in Wisconsin. You can get hurt. You can get her office address on the Internet. I sent her a congratulatory postcards. Just different ones But yeah go buy stamps. Support the post office. Trump's shut it down and we needed open so we can vote by mail or anything else. We could use some work the post office. Well we can't go there because Oh yeah that's right St at home order so I think buying stamps online is like the best thing you can do right now. Yep and maybe just if you're sending packages to make sure you send them posted you send it through the postal service. Let's let's keep that should alive also. It's not a bailout of the post office. It's just properly funding it. Well it hasn't been funded since the eighties or something like that. They fund themselves out really. Yeah yeah they. They find themselves through their services. But they they need they were gonNA be insolvent in two thousand twenty one corona virus. Put that up. Push that up to like next week so we need some help so buy some stamps. Yeah do that. And there's some really great grenfell stamps. She's one of my heroes. So those those An incredible And sadly passed away Reporter for PBS. A gynecologist absolutely incredible reporter. They have stamps for her. They have muppets. Commemorative Stamps Jim Henson Vodka do that. Muppets and Grenada. To my heroes and Let's see oh so. The Supreme Court has scheduled now the mazurkas trump versus Mazaar trump versus Deutsche Bank or the the house versus does end the Vance the CY Vance trump czars case all these tax return cases where trump that are supposed to be heard in the Supreme Court. they were supposed to be heard on. March thirty first that got postponed due to Kovic. But they're rescheduling it for May twelfth and I think they're doing it video conferencing and it's going to be recorded So Hey cool lot of people I put I. I put a tweet out like you can run. But you can't hide right. I got so many responses like you really think the Supreme Court is GonNa come down against trump. I still do I still do. Maybe I'm maybe I'm nuts but I still do think that these laws are so straight-forward they'll have to find in favor of house. Yeah I'm probably wrong. Okay and the National Institute of Health has developed a vaccine. That is now in human trials and is being worked on at emory university. There in Stage one trial that tests the vaccine's safety after that comes face to Which is the efficacy tests? That's where you study how effective it is at preventing people from getting Corona virus curb in nineteen. Th The the virus causes cover nineteen what you do is you give like In the safety trials tests like twenty forty sixty people in phase two they get like five hundred people and they give a bunch of people a placebo and they give a bunch of people not a placebo and the doctor who is administering. The vaccine doesn't know whether he's giving or she is giving the placebo or not. That's called a double blind study so that they can't be like Good luck with this vaccine. You know they can't like influence. How the person feels Double-blind study way more More valid and then they they see if the people who took a placebo got sick less often or more often or the same basically just to see how effective it is. There's actually over seventy vaccines in the works right now. Three or already in human trials. That is the fastest ever that could like a couple of doctors at emory university. Are like this is so fast. But it's still. It's still twelve to eighteen months away. So yeah. I know it's still a long time away but looking into what's happening with vaccines and being hopeful about that is is really helpful. Especially if someone who is high risk for this being you know lethal everyone it can be lethal to anyone regardless of age or or pre existing condition. Obviously we know that but Yeah definitely more susceptible for me because of my expensive lung damage and so it is amazing. I mean it is amazing that we have this is been less than six months and we already have vaccines in human trials. I mean certainly not in my lifetime. Have we all the medical community around the world? Come together to work on a problem like this with such speed verve. Yeah it's really amazing. Yeah Yeah it's it's it's fucking rat now to see how long it takes to get it. Yeah well that's the other thing that the doctor brought up from From do WHO's working on the trials at emory university. Says you don't just once it's passed phase one phase two and you found out it works and you got good. Efficacy has good result. It helps prevent Corona virus. Then you have to develop billions of doses and inoculate the globe. So it's not exactly as easy as it seems. That's another six months of you know that's why it takes twelve to eighteen months because you have to put that time in there to to give everybody the frigging vaccine and then you know and then you still have to see what happens so because we don't know if this thing is going to be seasonal we don't know if it's GonNa Mutate although it seems pretty stable right now but there's also studies coming out seeing that one in three people aren't even developing antibodies and that people. Who are the most contagious? Are The non the symptomatic carriers and the asymmetric carriers. Don't develop antibodies to to as much as the older folks who actually see symptoms so we are still a very long way from understanding any of this and we will likely according to a Harvard study. That came out yesterday. I talked about going to be in some sort of quarantine or intermittent social distancing until twenty twenty two. We are and I think that's been part of what I've been circling with is like Shh is really understanding how long I mean not not how long just because it's even beyond that. I'm sure things will have changed forever. But yeah settling at first. It was like this is just very few weeks in the MRS just for a few months and then realizing that like the could be Somewhat abnormal or we'll have some form of social and physical distancing for quite a while so yeah radical acceptance is a theory. That helped me with that to be like. I cannot change this. This is what's happening but it's definitely really. It's it's longer than than everybody thought a few weeks ago. That's for damn sure I mean it it. It could look like this too and McNeil went over this month. like a preceding decades ago last month on motto. When his look? Here's how it works. You flatten the curve. And then everybody's slowly goes out again. And then the curve goes up and everyone goes in and you flatten the curve. And you just keep that curve sort of at bay by doing that. Sort of intermittent staggered. Maybe by certain cities You know you could have some sort of a plan that way Of where you know. Okay this week. San Diego is out and about New York is at home. And then you know and you ban travel between states based on. Who's trying to flatten the curve at that specific time? And you just keep that shit up for fucking eighteen months until everyone's got a vaccine that works and even then you want to be very cautious because we still don't know I you know because we're coming out with these vaccines so quickly. Yesterday will fully test them. But we still don't know the response to how people are going to deal with. The antibodies and different age groups are going to do it in a different genders etc. So I shouldn't say genders sexes. What's the correct? Yeah different different. Texas Engenders Yeah. Yeah different. Biological sexes. Right how they respond to it. I should say and then of course different races to we know that African Americans are dying at a clip. Six Times faster than anybody else of this stuff and I think that that's I don't think that that's because they're more susceptible to it just because they're African Americans but you know in a roundabout way. Yes because they you know. They have been systematically left behind out of the system without access to healthcare for decades. And so you know it's there are all sorts of different factors to be very careful when we're quick story. I just want to get in before we get to the good news from from our listeners. In one here about the story that you were about to talk about but a Travis County judge in Travis County is in Texas has decided that they are going to allow this county to vote by mail. Because right as an absentee because right now the only reason you could vote. Absentee is if you're in jail yet but not convicted. Or if you're out of the country like in the military or you're completely disabled or over sixty five and so they're adding now and A provision that says you don't want to risk your life from cove in nineteen so that's good high five Travis County. This will probably be appealed. Hopefully not in time for the election. Yeah I was one of our listeners of that too as well A tweet from Texas civil project. So yeah that's that's fucking awesome. Hopefully it doesn't get repealed before when when is there. Oh they're primary is in July. Obviously November is the election. I think. Yeah Yeah I mean I was like for the primary and then I was like wait already. Chosen yeah. That's that's fucking Rod. I I love that. They did have they did have their primary. I'm sorry Oh that's right. Yeah hopefully as many people as possible are able to vote by mail in November And that we keep the post office economically healthy enough to help us with that. Yeah what it was going to say ways when you're referencing. The fact that African Americans are being impacted at a higher rate. I was I was watching a little bit about that. And something like almost seventy percent of the deaths in Louisiana and a similar percentage in Chicago. The desert were all African Americans and and I think this is something that like. Oprah's been talking about to win her like new Kobe series. Choose been producing How you know. It's like the areas in which they live in have higher rates of air pollution or the types of jobs. They work at are more hazardous. Or what have you which all like the way that poverty has intersected with this pandemic and the way the people's lifestyles or lack of access to the things that people have a higher economic class or are privy to has really made a hit much harder for a lot of these communities and it's just it's A. It was really shocking to me when I saw that was like set whereas like seventy percent of the deaths in Chicago. I think we're african-americans. Meanwhile they're only thirty percent of the population there. I covered this all on Sunday. Show yeah I did a whole big piece on it 'cause you know weeks ago. I tweeted there was a harvard doctor. Who's coming out with a point system On how to decide who got a ventilator and who didn't they were like we're going to sign points based on how many viable happy healthy years of life you have left and I said Whoa that is really going to disenfranchise people of Color. People who have People low socioeconomic means people who don't have access to healthcare people who have been racially discriminated against medically by doctors people who have been discriminated against jobs don't have healthcare because the healthcare is tied to employment people who can't get a job because they went to prison unfairly. Because you know the people who carry we'd around if you're black you'RE GONNA go to jail if you're white. You're not that Kinda shit all of it. All that intersection Definitely negatively impact that. And so it's just another reason we have to be. You know exceedingly careful as to when we all just go back out into the world again and you have to think about the more vulnerable communities not just yourself absolutely. Yeah have to go back and listen to your Sunday show Usually might listing bet the last few days I have not so I will. I will catch up on that segment. Would you like a little bit of good news from our listeners? Yes please. We have a few a few minutes left. So let's get. Let's hear those all right. This is from Jesse McKenna. Jesse says my wife and I have manufactured donated one hundred three D. printed facial tore local hospital so love that we get we get emails everyday from listener saying they're making base maps on.

"So the richest person in the world just made a big commitment in the name of the Environment Amazon. Ceo Jeff Bezos has announced. He's giving away ten billion dollars to fight climate change in a post on instagram. Today he unveiled the Basil's Earth Fund. He says the project will fund scientists activists in and any other effort that will help preserve our warming world. Jeff bezos Amazon's founder and CEO person whose empire includes everything from whole foods and the Washington. Post to a rocket company has announced that he's putting a historic amount of money. Ten billion dollars into a new Earth Fund. The money will be geared toward helping humanity tackle one of the biggest challenges we've ever faced climate change. So should we be excited about this? I'm Jim Ross. This is reset Teddy Schlieffer. Senior report. Recode helped me out here. How much is ten billion dollars to? Bezos depends on the Matthew I mean. Jeff Bezos with a net worth of one hundred thirty billion dollars is making one of the largest charitable gifts ever ten billion dollars to combat climate. Change SOUNDS PRETTY GOOD. But it's about eight percent of his net worth which obviously raises the possibility that he could be doing a lot more. Okay so why is this news? So it's news because it's GonNa make tremendous impact in the world of climate change for good or for evil you know suddenly Jeff Bezos. Who is an unelected for? Largely unaccountable to the public person with a ton of money is giving the world is money and also means. He's giving the rolled his thoughts on how to address climate. Change that the scientists and activists that Jeff bezos decides to fund will have enormous influence on the countries in the world response to climate change. Maybe that's good. Maybe that's bad but ultimately be living in the world that Jeff bezos wants to design. If we aren't already that's a really interesting idea which kind of makes me wonder. Do we actually know to what kind of projects this money is going. Is he going to have an active hand? In deciding what science experiment gets funded. And what doesn't I think it's a great question. Details are still pretty scarce. He said he's funding scientists activists. And NGOs this was basically a two paragraph post on instagram. So that should give you a sense of the amount of detail that we've had Listener Shannon O. S. Amazon for more information and they've been very stingy about giving more information at this time. Is there anything in his donation? History that can help us digest. This money will be used. So Jeff bezos has done this before about two years ago year and a half ago. He said he was a bunch of money. Tech anti-homelessness initiatives and he set up a board of experts. People were pretty well regarded in the homelessness work. And bezos basically took the recommendations and actually we recorded story about visas unusual approach to grant making where rather than putting strict rules on how the money's spent and requiring applicants to jump through tons of hoops. Jeff bezos basically gave the money instead do want with it and was pretty extraordinary no-strings-attached approach to philanthropy and if passes prologue. That should be here. That's interesting because when it comes to science grants there are huge amounts of restrictions. Right they also tend to have to release plan out exactly how they're going to use the money and I could imagine that being quite liberating for some scientists and some NGOs to not have those kinds of restrictions then again I can also imagine that money being misused in a number of ways without those kinds of restrictions. It's certainly a risk in the philanthropy world. There's been this trend toward more strings. Attached which probably is exemplified by DIFFERENT SEATTLE BILLIONAIRE BILL GATES. And there's been a backlash brewing in the big world for a couple years about. Why are these donors making us fill? All these forms and these different quarterly reports in one donor wants this metric and other donor wants that metric. I talked with a lot of these non-profit heads that received money from basis late last year and they describe it as liberating but you're right. The risk is if there is massive abuse. Which does happen in some isolated instances lampy world will? Jeff bezos. Notice that the other. Nice thing about this. Is that often times smaller? Ngos or smaller labs. Don't really have the resources to provide the kind of information that these larger grants need even though they might be doing amazing science or amazing work in climate change world. If that kind of information is no longer required I could also imagine a world where different groups are getting the money instead of having the same groups. Get the money over and over and over again because they have the ability to provide this information exactly but again we have details on. Who's on this advisory board? If one leaving exist I've asked Amazon. Who's head of the program? They say we have no details to share at this current time details here are very scarce and it makes you kind of question. If the details aren't ready to be announced why even announced that commitment in the first place right which brings me to my next big question which is why is he making this announcement now doing no. We don't I mean basis has been under significant pressure from Amazon employees to do more about the climate crisis and more broadly basis personally is under significant pressure to be a bigger philanthropist. Someone who is the world's wealthiest person he's not signed the giving pledge which is a popular promise by many of the world's wealthiest people to give away half their money before they die and basis for a long time as made very very small charitable gifts. You sort of described. Blue origin is space program as tropic legacy which is a questionable thing to say it is a for profit initiative so that is not certainly the traditional view charity and also not exactly initiative that is geared towards saving the planet from climate change correct. So I think more broadly I think the question of why Jeff bezos announcing this now is is a is a great totally for a question. But I think we've seen a couple instances over the last year or two. Jeff bezos sort of getting more comfortable an struggling and wrestling with his new fame. Right everything from the sort of Tawdry tabloid scandal With his new girlfriend who has ties to Hollywood? He's buying expensive houses in Los Angeles. They're setting California real estate records. Jeff bezos is becoming much more comfortable and much more realistic about the fact that as the world's wealthiest person she's going to draw scrutiny in a way that he never would have even five years ago so now with philanthropic commitment you know. Jeff bezos has been scrutinized and criticized for basically his lack of serious heavyweight charitable giving. And this seems an answer to say. I'm not gonNA take it anymore and I'm GONNA be out there and I'm going to have a pledge details. Tvd But I'm doing something. What exactly is businesses actual philanthropic track record basis for a long time? Basically give very very little. You really had to scrutinize and look for a few Zeros to find the Jeff bezos charity efforts you know he had a family foundation which was mostly one by parents who have gotten pretty wealthy from some early bets on their sons company back in the Nineteen Ninety S and. He didn't really do anything until a couple years ago when he announced the day one fund which was a two billion dollar commitment to homelessness work and to Early Childhood Education. And that's about it until now. It sounds like what businesses doing is on the one hand extremely altruistic on the other hand it gives him a ton of power should billionaires. Have this much power when it comes to global crises like climate change right. There's certainly an argument to be made that. Jeff Bezos who is just one guy in Seattle that nobody who's elected Who had a great idea for an e? Commerce company should have more power over the countries in the world response to climate change. The new Russian have is voters so there certainly some on the left who are glad to see him spending money on issues they care about but they would argue that the ten billion dollars would be better serviced by federal tax payers and spent by the Federal Government and Jeff Bezos might have good ideas on climate change. He might have bad ideas. But ultimately he's going to become one of the most powerful people in determining the world's response to this and there are people who say that billionaires are just regular people and it should be one person one vote and they should not be having so much influence over our response to a critical problem right. If bezos decides that what he wants to fund is new battery technologies as opposed to wind energy. Or or what have you then then? That's the direction that the science will will go in. Because that's the question is would you rather have Jeff Bezos opinion or to have the world not do enough? Which is sort of the track. We're on right now. So take your pick your poison here whether you want the slow bureaucracy of federal international government or you want the fast decisive but ultimately biased decision-making of billionaire. Do we know anything about how Amazon employees feel about this donation recently? They've been protesting Amazon's environmental track record. So what's going on with that Amazon? employees came out with a statement. Saying we applaud. Jeff bezos philanthropy. One Hand cannot give what the other is taking away essentially saying good job and now what I mean. Jeff bezos basically is making a personal commitment but there are a lot of climate activists who think that what he's doing with one of the largest companies in the world.

"We're heading down the home stretch of the baseball season at least September France for crying out loud. We have several questions. We wanna put to MLB network analyst at lider had Alan like fourteen years. It was time and he's everywhere that we got him back. Alice start when Red Sox Yankees, which obviously game two is tonight. Aaron judge is back in that lineup is the pitcher of many years. You look at that lineup with judge back in it, how dramatically does it change your job. I think it changes a lot. Listen, you, first of all, he's very imposing. Right? And every pitcher pitching coach and baseball that has faced the Yankees, no knows what he's capable of. So I think more than anything else guys with Aaron judge back and it will probably take a few games for the timing and the rhythm and all that. I thought the one check swing in his last about ended up striking out was test for that wrist. He looked good. I think it takes the load off of the younger guys, especially to Harwich been unbelievable. Maybe Stanton will start getting comfortable. So there's plenty there. And Aaron judge is definitely not only lineup change, but he's a game changer guy. All right, is natural album. All the talk of the American League all summer has been about writ SOX Yankees and Astros, but is there anything you see in the Indians that makes you say hold on? Hold on this. Let's not count these guys out. Absolutely. I think if you look at what the Indians under the raider we look across baseball and you say, okay, where where's the competitive interesting stories? We'll the central has not been competitive or interesting. Only. Because the Indians of ran away with it since April. So I think as a result of that Terry Francona, here's a team a couple of years ago, the World Series, almost one it, you know, the cubs historically got their world championship. I think this is a dangerous team. I do. I like what they did, especially bringing in Brad hand. I think you know, there was an issue with their bullpen. These guys can hit. There's no doubt about it. My mind. We'll see what Josh Donaldson if he does have an impact or a factor, Corey kluber is a beast. If you look at, you know what? Trevor Bauer, they, they gave him a little time off. You got hit in the shin. There's some interesting move there if the Indians want actually put him in the bullpen, especially that first series, we really only need three guys maximum four if necessary. So I think you're right on it. I think the Indians are not getting talked about enough and they're really dangerous team. You know the dodgers they're saying that they're the best team or they're playing the best in baseball right now. That's what their manager, Dave Roberts said, do you? Are you starting to believe in them a little bit. I am. I am listen for me. Dave Roberts to be able to handle all of the personalities. Right. I mean, there's a lot of accumulation of very good players. Certainly they're experiencing the World Series last year. Manny. Machado coming over is huge. Got guys that even a Brian dosier coming in at second base. There's enough there. I think it's just been inconsistent and when you're not consistently doing the job and I think there was an assumption that they were gonna roll because of the depth of their roster. I think they're also coming together the nationally to me heads out. If you look at the American lakes to me, you know, talking about the Indians. Yankees would be interesting, especially if judge gets right Severino tonight. Certainly the Red Sox and the Astros, but the National League, it's kind of all over the place when you really see about who actually is the number one team, if you will come out of it. I'd say reluctantly, probably the cubs, but I think the dodgers if they peak right now, they've got way too much talent to not be able to run the table. We're gonna let you go after this question, this has nothing to do with any of the contenders, but I keep making the case, whatever it comes up that wins, old-fashioned winds should matter when it comes to sei-yung voting. What are you think when it comes to Jake, your..

But again, there's something there and the only thing is going to get the Steelers pass that other than a house cleaning, and I don't believe they're quite ready to this year.

They didn't have to fill in for him I, but what do you think is going to be or should be? It'll be some type of monetary monetary? Yes.

Sixers finally have hired a GM Frank Elton brand who retired from playing in the NBA less than two years ago is now running the day to day for team expected to be in the top four in the east. This season brand ran the Sixers g. league team this summer, but this will be his first time running an NBA outfit. So Franken wise fourteen with great expectations in that market. Coming off the Bryan Colangelo drama to hand the job to a guy with zero experience. Well, you can't say that it's not a risk, but that doesn't mean that he's not going to do a good job l. andbranch a pretty smart guy. We know in the NBA it's the San Antonio Spurs Duke basketball in USA basketball. Those are the three things that basically run basketball in this country. So he knows a lot of other GM's from other teams he's well connected. He's going to have smart people around him. The Sixers made the mistake. They should have hired somebody whether or not it was early for the summer star because their organization looked, it's functional. So whether or not LeBron was ever going to even consider Philadelphia. We don't know you struck out on him. You struck out. On letter, then you lost Ersan Ilyasova end Bella Nellie who were pretty decent role player. So they have a good summer so l. andbranch got his work cut out. Yeah. I mean, they put they put Elton brand and the catch up position. Yeah, we'll just as bad. This is the dumbest AAC by ownership, and I don't know if it's hubris or indecision. I'm not sure where it is, but whatever it is you put a guy with no experience in this position having to play catch up. So I think that if I'm looking at it already, maybe I'm going to head of myself. I didn't the seventy Sixers because of what you said are the team that could have a little backslide. Yes, in the Eastern Conference and sort of watch out some of the teams that were behind them. So I, I like Elton brand is a choice here. I think he's one of those guys. We all know who they cerebral guy who when he was hurt all those years after very terrific beginning to his career had to stay in the league on guile and just hard work and intellect, and all that's going to serve him with it's amazing, ten years ago, he got that big contract from Philadelphia. Then a few years ago. They essentially hired him to be the babysitter to do. And he only retired officially retired in two thousand sixteen, and now he's running the show in Philadelphia and he's got his workout cut up to get better this year do and it's going to be horrible..

"They would've finished further threat in the playoff picture in the seedings had he not been hurt for that last three weeks, three or four weeks? It seems to me my take away as that Wiggins and Karl Anthony towns, a too young guys who don't want another guy as old school. Tough as coach timid. Oh, and Jimmy Butler is that try on their rear ends too bad. The Minnesota Timberwolves had a culture of something else in the time that Kevin Garnett was gone all those years and when they couldn't make the playoffs. And I think Jimmy Butler is good for that. And if I'm Tibbs as far as I know those two still get along, I say, Jimmy Butler. We'll get rid of some other people, but you're staying, but it doesn't seem like the way they're going Frank. How about Karl Anthony towns, Andrew, Wiggins, too high picks. They come to a team like Minnesota. They trade for Jimmy Butler. The first time you're hearing chance of MVP since Kevin Garnett left.

I do think that's part of it, but I also think Jimmy Butler might be using the younger guys as an excuse to get out of there because I do believe he wants to play in a bigger market. I had heard this for we who big is now looking at York LA and a lot like LeBron you know, he likes being in movies and don't forget Kyrie Irving in some way is connected to this. Yes.
