A highlight from Rudimentos De Este Mundo | Glatas 4 con Flavio Velsquez
"Hello, hello, to all those who do not know, one of the most dangerous, yes, we thank all those who do not know, today is a day of special night, where we are with various people, we are discussing with Andres, which are vacations, and for Andres to talk with us, Danny or Dan, etc. And also, we are discussing with Emmanuel, who is also with us, and we are discussing whether or not he is with us, and whether or not he is with us completely, right? I'm sorry. Hello, hello, hello. Ah, hello, he is with us, he is with us, and as invited of the night, he is with us, and we are also with him, David and Alejandro, and one of our patrons, as always, our new partner, Paul Reyes. Welcome to everything, it's a pleasure to be here, we are discussing Galatas 4, and I would like to tell you that there is a lecture of various versions of Galatas 4, and I would like to start, Adelante. I would like to know if it is a classic version, or a different one? Let's see, we are going to do the classic version, because I'm going to use the differential of the utility, a common version for the album, and what I can do, because I don't think that the production of the song, or the song, or anything like that, I don't have any problems, because it's not easy for Galatas to do it. I understand. I don't think that the version of the song is much better, and there is a version of it that I like. Of course, of course. Of course, because Pablo... Pablo is much better at the normal version, and Galatas, who is Francois in the song, but as always, the song is the version that is best for the album. You are to listen to the podcast. Yes, yes, yes. Let's go to the next live production. Think about it in a different way. If a father and mother, and two children, are their children, those children are not in the best situation that they are in, so they are in the best situation. Because they are the children of all the positions of their father. They have to be the tutors that are assigned to their father. That's why we say it with us, until we find Christ. We are like children. We are the children of the most basic and spiritual principles of the world. If, when it's complete time, the father is dead, he dies of his illness, he dies of a murder, and his son is dead, but his son is dead. He dies on his own, so that when we compare the liberty of what we are of the dead, we find that they can adopt us as their own children. And from the life that we are their children, they die of the spirit of their children, to our own creation, which is what we call the simple -sex -clamor -aba -padre. Now, they are not his children, they are his own children, and as his own children, they are his own children.

Alina Habba: Trump Would Never Admit Guilt, Take a Plea Deal
"On the campaign, which is in itself an exhausting, very consuming process. No, I could never imagine. I know I would never advise that, especially when he's not anything done wrong. You take a plea deal to make something go away. That's an admission of guilt. Make guilt because there was nothing wrong with declassifying documents, taking documents with you negotiating with NARA. The only thing that was wrong was... And by the way, that gets into a whole other issue, which I've discussed the in past, the declassification of documents. Even the American Bar Association in a piece in October 2022, and that is a left -wing so -called professional organization. I resigned from it a long time ago. Even the ABA said, for them, this is an ambiguous area, whether Trump did or did not declassify. You don't indict somebody to test out a legal theory, particularly a former president who's the leading candidate to run against the current thugs in the DOJ and the President of the United States. You don't indict somebody because you think it can transition easily from the Presidential Records Act to the Espionage Act, down square with each other. You don't indict somebody on matter a of first impression, regardless of what says. Trump
Butler, Jokic lead Heat, Nuggets into a NBA Finals after unconventional paths
"This is the first time the nuggets have ever played in the NBA Finals. And the team's first time in a final series since the last year of the ABA in 1976, that means the dearth of experience for nuggets players this deep into a season. One Denver player with finals experience is kentavious Caldwell Pope, who was on the Lakers 2020 title team. Just trying to keep him calm knowing that and the first couple of possessions are going to be a lot even for myself, you know, I'm feeling anxious right now I'd even get out there. The nuggets have rest on their side, having polished off the Lakers last Monday in a four game sweep. The heat will have had two days off since winning game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

"Yeah. So that's cool. We take the we take the wins when we get them, right? Yeah, for sure. Are you doing like ABA therapy or? Yeah. Nothing or other. Today was his actual first day of baby therapy. He decided that he was gonna wake up at three 30 in the morning. He didn't go back to sleep and he stayed away all morning long and had a full day of ABA and did really, really well and came home and passed out at three o'clock, so. Is he normally have a issue sleeping? Oh yeah, a ton. I tried melatonin for a really quite a bit. Sometimes like at the beginning when I first started I would put him to sleep, but he'd wake up and then it's slow and slow and slowly stop working. So I contacted the doctor and the diagonal sim and he put him on some medication. It worked. And now he's back to waking up in the middle of the night. And that's hard. It's very hard. It's really, really hard. Especially when he's sleeping as the only time I'm able to get anything done. And so I'm ready to lay down and go to bed. He's wide eyed mushy town. Yeah. And this show is like for sure is no medical diagnosis, nothing, and we contribute nothing from a medical or educational or whatever disclaimer I have to give before I tell you what we had to do for my son, which is not something that I'm recommending at all and just sharing my experience. For sure. It's melatonin. It's been a drill. It's an ADHD. It's ten X, which is like the prescription. And the combination we've been doing it for years. See, and his doctor put him on clonidine, which is clonidine, yeah. Like blood pressure. And that's what my oldest is on. That's what they started him on with ADHD medication was to bring down his hyperactivity. But now he's on it for sleep. And it works well with him, but with my young ass, it's like he's just eating a candy. Yeah, I wish you to find your solution as soon as possible because that was I can't say exactly what was the if there was a number one reason for the nasty divorce. I eventually went through it might have been the no sleep because we were just crazy. We were just insane. I believe it. So I hope you find your solution sooner than later. How about for you? How are you taking care of yourself? How are you, you know, are you doing anything for you? I do. I'm a firm believer in self care, for sure. No matter what is around you no matter what's going on, shadows take care of yourself because you don't take care of yourself. I mean, you'll never be happy ever. You'll never have that one little even if it's a teeny tiny millimeter.

"You gave sort of two examples that are easily discriminated against. Those people aren't the problem bosses who may or may not want to be helpful telling you to smile could come off as harassment or harass seen in a way that is unintended. But it is important that that we avoid. It's on the part of us as people who have had bad experiences being told the smile to suck it up and know that. That's not what the person meant. I can this point. It's important that managers and supervisors be responsible for what they say in the feedback. They give gotcha so it's not the idea smiling so much as it is the idea of being told this is the way you need to present yourself to the world. That is the part that makes people feel uncomfortable. Am i understanding that parade. Because that's not i. I think. I hear what you're saying. I i'm trying to have a level of understanding. Not because i think i just again. I'm coming from a place of privilege. So it's not something i've had to think about. This book was written for me. You know some people love fruit loops. I love the luke. You're talking about diana. The white male discussion loop. That's my favorite breakfast cereal. I think so easy for me. So i appreciate it and again. I don't expect anyone here to be my. Tell me about the discrimination. Tell me what an interesting story. I don't want your all my my colleagues and friends and family so i don't need you to serve that role but i do appreciate when right. What would i can have these. Discussions guay from the piece is missing is a ham out there. Very often in these types of interactions are gonna be unstated. Power dynamics either between a boston and employee right or there's going to be layered on but again unstated social dynamics at play here as well between groups and maybe underrepresented or groups at more power so if someone who's in that position of power is dictating. How the other person needs to act and is saying that they need to act in a way. That's the way that that person in power acts maiden then. You're the implication. Is that your culture. Your background isn't good enough. And you need to said mimic. What i'm doing in order to get ahead or move up right and it comes into like you were talking about earlier allen with the kind of masking of who you are in order to fit in and then be able to advance excellent. I'm fortunate to have y'all here. Otherwise i just talk about boring historical facts because i i. I love learning these nice. It's great in terms of my big questions. I really wanted to bring to my read of this books. Read it before this the second and a half time. i think i'd read it in the past four or five years really. I'm going to be lavished in my praise to alan. Who gave sent a great link of nice talk. I'll have it in the show notes but dr liz. We've had on the show. Sean capable and helen added deepa about talking about race in diversity and kind of using that as a springboard to think of some critical questions that i probably would not have thought of on my own and appreciated having a different perspective to help me understand what what what in this book might be more complex or have a context that no longer make some of these recommendations urban so smiling was one. We know that you all talked about. I thought that made a very strong point that when we get to that section of the book will mention. It's in the book and then we don't talk about it anymore. People don't wanna talk about it anymore because we don't think it's one that would be relevant future and we discussed why already but what i took from that talk from free talk. We all did as grew really the idea of again. This book being written or white men and a very specific time and as much as it's been updated it was updated by someone who was the wife of you know who has a has an agenda whether again it's a cynical positive agenda forty years ago forty years ago. Yeah exactly that is not going to take into account a lot of lots chain. Call cultural cultural competent theory or thoughts on how to make a diverse workplace. The idea that you get a lot of the thoughts in here are ones. That people of color often been a penalized for doing so again. We can express yourself and historically a lot of people of color are penalized for that or they're punished for doing that. You know sharing their their thoughts or like you know. Try to talk to them about their neat. Legua people like that and so many of these recommendations. It might work for you if you're one of the good old boys in the business but are going to get you fired if you're not one of those people are not in the same homogenize group. That's in charge of of the company or the sales group at whatever it happens to be and really just trying to think about where is my privilege and my historic learning context. Going to make some of these points relevant. When like you said allen. They're not always going to be relevant so while some of these points may be good in certain times with certain people that doesn't make them great supervision practices that makes them supervision party trick or you know pull this out of the bag tricks if need be or if you find yourself in this setting and then also the idea that this is a book. That's old. It's not going to take into account a lot of our modern discussions of what makes a positive working environment. There's nothing here about you. Know how do you avoid. Or how do you reflect microaggressions or how are you culturally competent. Because certainly while some of the points that makes about sharing an actual interest in the other person you may be able to say this is sort of a precursor to some of what we talk about. In our of cultural competence. You're listening to our consumer. It's not quite the same. It's it's not quite the same you know it's sort of a similar but it's not coming from the same place. Therefore that doesn't mean it serves the same function and taking that into amount into account. And like you were saying diana to what our leader power differentials there's nothing in here about power differentials at all the way carnegie makes it sound like is if you're smiling and if you say something positive inter- interested in bosses yacht collection bam. You're in like flynn. You're gonna be the bosses best friend regardless your wage slave and the ceo of a major train company or whatever the heck his anecdotes and again that's not always the case. There is a power differential there and again does that mean that your you are really doing suck up job rather than trying to share a vested interest in the other person in the goal of everyone getting what they want out of the business steal again. That's positive and i'd like to think it's a positive way to do business. Everyone's gonna win you know. That's my idea of customer. Services might have a good business. Everybody wins the consumer wins. The supplier wins. But that's not how everyone does business and do just assume that's the way everyone does. Business is really looking at the world through rose colored glasses and it's not appropriate and it's not taking into account a lot of structures that have led us to many of the conflicts that we are still dealing with in the country so those are kind of the big points. I was really trying to bring into my reading of it. Whether i did a great job of bringing them into my discussions rather i just fell into the shocks manship of learning about how you know billy. The garage salesmen was able to make his quota by getting all the palettes to the doctor. Whatever you know the anecdote was be. I can't say for sure. Why did i did try to put that into my conversation. And i hope it will come through in our conversations as a group all right now before we even talk more about this book. I think we need a little break. And then when we come back we're gonna get into.

"Use them as they stood would that result in ineffective superman right. So that's kind of how i imagine. My role in this is is talking about that right and you know one of the main. I think premises of the book. Is you want your employees to perform well right. And when you're talking about the race ineffective supervision you might see. Four klein outcomes for supervise forms for outcomes overall right so i think that's that will tie in establishing clear performance expectations for the supervisor and supervise e i too. I think we'll tie in to some of the principles as well and then indirectly. But i think it's important that we talk about isis three select supervision goals based on an assessment of the supervise e skills and then obviously i seven where we talk about using function based strategies to improve personnel performance. Right that i think we're gonna need to gleam from our own interpretation of the principles because at that time i wasn't talking about function based strategies. I will say though. It's being by seven and function. Based i did find him. I note some of the principles. I said this feels so much like what you might do. When you're doing like an interview to determine function of another person's behaviors speedily related to soft skills. You know like what what are the barriers to this individual. Doing what i want them to do. Which which again is not not quite the same as what we talk about function based treatment because our goal is not. I need this person to do what i want so much as wise as person not able to do the things but they want but but some of those basic ideas i do. I do feel are in this book based insanity and function Heard of the book. Which part of the book is about the women who went insane. 'cause they wanted attention. Oh yeah that's function incorrect. Correct function right. That will talk about the ineffective. Risk of supervision right primary again. I want to defend that statement. However the idea of mental health being based on the principle based on like access to attention or escape from aversive like that was in like mary simmons coercion and its fallout like he had a whole section on on the idea of like irving zayed's but like some mental health is used being related to that does not sound like dell made that that was sort of a prevailing thought for many people. It might still be from people not me diana. You're looking at me. No no no no moving on at h. One state intervention goals in observable and measurable terms. Right i think that will get multiple principles right and then collaborate with others who support or provide services to clients. That's going to be all of these right like principle four principal five actually honestly might be if you just read this book to put one supervision goal that i can just thinking about it. I can just take from the book and use. Ideally practice actually might be the most direct correlation in terms of a lot of times. We work with other people. A lot of what you're trying to do is get them to join you on your using function based treatments using basic behavior analytic principles. So if you need if there's one skill that you don't want to do anything about and just read the book and take face value. That's probably the one. Yeah and then. I added h three recommend intervention goal strategies based on factors as client preferences supporting environments risk strangers. Both ability rate. Don't think that will most book align when you're talking about like principles like seven through. Well yeah if. I could just interject just sort of related to that. My perspective especially personal perspective on this book relates to the new ethics code of like one point. Oh seven cultural. Like response responsibility. And i think it's one point tan awareness of personal biases in challenges. Because as someone who. I'm not on the autism spectrum. I haven't engine deficit disorder but a lot of my criticism of this book comes from the fact that this book feels like masking like Serve teaching people how to mask and to function within one way and it's important that as a field. We make sure that we teach that there are multiple ways to be successful chrysler actions soft skills and to you know even conditional discrimination like you might not be successful with the you know taking that approach elsewhere but we want to make sure that when we're working with behavior analysts that that we don't just expect these types of behaviors which could screw recommending this book as like. This is the right way and they really the only way but good point to point out. I mean to be honest. The cut the title of the book is the only book you need to lean you. Six title part of selling your book is making it clear. Like i know you've been limited funds if you're going to buy one book. This is the book you should buy. And i don't think we would say that about anything. You're only gonna read one journal article this year. This is like we never say. There are so much context that you would gain from multiple sources so no one's ever going to say this is the only other than the title and the p tried to sell you the book. We're never going to say this is. This is the one we found it. The holy grail and supervision books. I'm even. I'm not gonna say that. And i told you i'm the i'm the soft touch. It was the biggest the biggest. Bff of my buddy. Dale here i think all right so now that we've kind of done some nice introduction. I think some nice context of what we're talking about when do two things before we get into the book one like i said i think we need to talk about. The history of this book was written in some of the milestones. Because some people might still be saying this book is all of this book is out of date it is not appropriate to discuss and we kind of want to keep getting at why we think there is still value in having this discussion. Maybe not making people read this book. As part of their coursework but have working knowledge of why why it exists why it might still be relevant in some ways and not relevant and a lot of other ways then also kind of discussing some of the broader topics related to. Why is this not the only book you need to lead you to success i e just because he wrote a book in the thirty s four straight white businessmen to follow. That doesn't mean it's the right book for everybody in every single problem again. In deals defense it would be really hard to dale. How come you didn't use more. You know people from this group and we're exemplars from this group actually in some more discussions. There's more thorough more like female business people and more home skills in this version. The nineteen ninety-one edition and again. I think a lot of that's gonna be really a testament to how hard his wife worked after the publishing of the book and after his passing to continue making it irrelevant book because at the end of the day. This really does feel like your old uncle telling you stories from what he used to sell. Globe store door you know. There is that component of it but anyway let's get into some historical context and a lot of this is. I took some of this from the introduction. Dale carnegie himself talks about his life. Take their with a grain of salt. I also took this from suggest. Mccue book american and unexpected. Us history and thirteen bestselling books. A whole chapter on how to win friends and influence people where she does go into history. So i did look. I did kind of cross site some of the some of dale statements with her own research. The sort of see what. What of these pieces is probably most accurate so again. The book was written in nineteen thirty six and sold about five thousand copies to start since. Then it's gone on to be as mckee writes part of the american canon of nonfiction books. It's still an all time bestseller. It's still a bestseller to this day. Even though it has been written in nineteen thirty six outside of books that i think you're forced to read part of your high school american literature curriculum. There aren't that many books. I think that are this. Old people are still buying on a regular basis. I'm sure there are their bible the bible. Okay the bible's pretty old outlet. That's way more than a hundred years old right so yes there are. There are other books that i think not to make this. You know the the paramount booker anything like that. But i'll try to note. Sort of you know when i'm talking about what dale talks about in the junction where jessica talks about.

"aba" Discussed on ABA Inside Track
"And we are back talking with special guest. Dr jessica slayton all about the history and the evolution of the functional analysis but before we bring our discussion up to the present day. I want to remind our listeners that. Aba inside track is as approved by listening to the show. You're able to earn one learning credits. Just listen to the rest of the episode that go to our website. Aba track dot com slash ghezzi. He used that's g. e. t. hyphen c. e. u. s. And just enter in the two secret code words that we've hidden in the episode. I'm gonna give you the first one now. It is tennis. T. e. n. n. i s. tennis. It's the sports where you have two rackets and the ball also a tennis ball and you bouncing back and forth fun fact. Some people consider the first video game ever created to be tennis for two which was created using an oscilloscope and nineteen fifty five. Yes history. isn't it's always for two. Yes i don't know why he called it tennis to get a branded or something it would later be called. Preferred t for two fifty. That game was not successful. no one has purchased it. It's not real okay. Tennis all right so we teased before the break. But we're coming into not the future the future but it's really just the present day i synthesis era so we're now going to talk all about the current trend in the functional analysis looking at the synthesize functional analysis. Which i know we were sort of joking in the brain. How old is old and you know what we would consider not that old many young people who consider less when we talk about synthesized f. as i think we are talking about something that is not very old will at least in terms of you know most of the research that gets discussed so just want you to talk the rest of the episode because you did an entire review of all of the articles relating cincinnati ever have been okay job but we can talk back and forth. But let's let's do. That was interesting talking about like how. How old is old. How new is is this one of the things that we wanted to do in our review when we looked back at the use of synthesis in the literature was kind of to ask that question. Like is this actually something that is completely new or is this something that people have been doing in different ways and we just never called the same thing and so it sounds like these are all just different unrelated methodologies different unrelated articles but in so when we started looking back and looked at synthesizing antecedents as well as synthesizing consequences. We found a lot of way way earlier stuff. I think the earliest thing. We identified was nineteen ninety-five. We also ended up by some identifying things even in the sixties that didn't quite count based on the criteria. We had set for inclusion. But they were really interesting. Examples of how people have been combining things in functional analyses for for quite a while. We should probably also talk a little bit about what synthesis in an fa with an certainly we have other episodes of our show. Where you know we talked to dr rajaram about the iska itself and some of that research. We're talking about synthesis in an fa a fabulous visual in your article in which you've got the gradations almost like the color spectrum of the functional analysis in terms of going all the way from sort of you know what we consider sort of basic isolated actual analysis which we're looking at one one topography that's going to be reinforced. All the way up to what you see in sort of the full synthesized contingency analysis. Where binding your topography. you're binding the reinforces that are delivered. Would you might sort of describing that visual. Just kind of generally for folks who either are in their car and can't look at it right now or haven't gotten to the printer yet to look at their hoppy article sorry to hold their printed. Their phones look at the article. What the printer zero right. So if you're in your car definitely do not try to look at special right now. But it's really good visual. Everybody should drive first so this displays the continuum of things. That could be synthesized isolated. So we started by thinking about the parts of the contingency that are present and in in an fa so in you know in a test condition. You're presenting some eeo that is going to evoke the target behavior. There's some target behavior that's going to be reinforced. And then you're providing some reinforcer so you've got those components that yo the response and the reinforcer and any of those or all of them could be either isolated or synthesized so at one of the continuum you could have an analysis where in your test condition. There is one single ao being presented like demands. There is one topography that is being reinforced. Maybe say hitting and there is one reinforced with. That's being provided for that one to escape from demands all the way at the other end of the continuum you could set up analysis. Where in your test condition you have. Synthesized dios may be for example. You're withholding tangible items while presenting demands that this is to fees meaning. Maybe there's precursors and dangerous problem behavior that will be reinforced and then also synthesize reinforces in which you're going to provide the reinforcer associated with all of the emails that you've put in place so terminate the demands and return the tangible item men. Then in between you have any combination so you could have synthesized e. o.'s into poppie's but only one reinforcer so for example. Maybe you're that would look like you're withholding tangible items and presenting demands but when the precursor problem behavior occurs you only terminate the demands but don't return the tangible item. So you've provided one of the reinforcer in that you were studying with your ears. But not all of them in terms of the the overall continuum. We're not supposed to be thinking about that as sort of you know. Topography is more isolated than say. Now the the reinforcer being user fuss being being reinforced right. It's more sort of just a matter of all isolated to some isolated to some synthesized to all synthesized correct or were you thinking of it as individual components sort of reflecting a more isolated fa viewpoint. I mean that's a good question. I think that topography are very often combined in functional analyses. So i sometimes. I don't know i don't know that you know if you had an fa where you had one zero one reinforcer but you multi reinforce multiple problem behaviors that that would necessarily be more synthesized than an faa. Where like you synthesized eos. But you know i. I'm not sure if i answered very clearly. It sounds like there could be room for splitting hairs about well. You know this. This component of mfa could be considered more miceli size but perhaps not not really a relevant conversation to have. I just sort of anytime. i see a continuous. I always wonder. Is this sort of other components of it that are sort of.

"Hostess tobias macy into today interviewing julian ladonna about lineage new standard for structuring meta data to enable interoperability across the ecosystem of data management tools.

We work after that. I studied dedicated. Which i'm this show now and so you've actually been on the show. This is your third time now. So you were on to talk about your work with apache parque. And you're on with doug cutting. Who was the creator of astro. So that was a good conversation. And then you're also on talk about your work with marquez. Which is a natural transition to where you are now with. Data can which building on top of that platform so for folks who listened to the marquez episode. I don't know if you want to. Just give a quick recap about where that project has gone. And maybe what you're building on top of it with data again before we dig into open lineage. So you can from. When you build data platform it quickly becomes evident that she need an equivalent of service oriented architecture retro data pipelines like people consume data they produce data and by default israel egypt visibility. Where they did is coming from awards going and so we need to understand. We consume the data that we produce and how they impacted by the changes were may be doing and we understand where they did is coming from that. We're consuming how it's being maintained in deadwood right so that leads us to start the marcus project at we were so you building the data platform at work. That where's the need for. How do we understand in an organization where they are many teams that consumed produce data. How do they understand how they depend on each other. In our things change.

Okay and the other songs by sally shapiro. If anyone's wondering jackie over to you and they're singing. I even made that hippopotamus you gave me. Yes just gets dressed up or she thinks she sings. Yeah that's but this isn't really a podcast about novel. Smith songs you ask. you're right. i asked. I'm sorry because why would i wanna talk about novelty christmas songs from what we should be talking about is our bread and butter. Which is talking about. Behavior analysis hebrew analytic research. I love bread and butter bread and butter podcast. But he concha me. Where every week. We talk about a topic related to behavior analysis. We get some recent research articles or relevant research articles in some cases and discuss them at length and this week in case. You couldn't tell we're going to be discussing quality of life and you probably couldn't you probably could not. We only said the phrase like ten times in that little opening shebang. So we're going to be specifically talking about quality of life for autistic individuals though as you will find out and we already found out because you know. We read the articles before recording. There aren't a ton of great articles on quality of life for autistic individuals. So we're going to be talking generally about quality of life and they were going to sort of focus in on what there is out there in the research field in relation to autism. But why don't we start by letting everyone know what articles we will be discussing tonight or today or whenever you're listening create yeah thank you so much. We're gonna be talking about a systematic review of quality.

Is that win win. These win these different people that like heather's talking about these online talking about That she accepted not tried to change right. This is a this is the core of who they are This advocates hussein's if you're talking about aba being there to remove stemming behaviors and if that's the purpose of it is to change the way state person behaves in general. That feels kennedy to me. It feels i. I feel like. I look at ace and his stemming behaviors. I can think their magical. He's i love it when he his arms he's sick a little Butterfly i love when he is when he needs to stare at things really closely in them turns them and i he takes everything. Everything is life that looks totally ordinary. A can be beautiful to him. He picks up his four while he's eating any fricks it in front of his eyes up and down up none of announced. You can like watch it in there. You think. that's just amazing. And i think that is. I my sanding okay. When when sell out and kiss are saying autism needs to be accepted not not just become something we're aware of and trying to fix is like don't take that away from us. I live in the world. I need to see these things move in the wind. I need to To fill my arms in this way in not stuff is just away being that we s as monsters people down syndrome understan- to right we. We love those things about our kids. They are different. You're never gonna be normal and it's never gonna these people automatically go. Wow what an interesting way to be but we who see it and love it know that this is a beautiful way the when we're talking about. Aba in terms of ken as learn how to go potty. then. I don't think there's a if. Aba is the way that my son can learn how to be independent on toilet. Then i'm gonna give him. Maybe i'm not. I don't. I'm not interested in you. Know a battle over whether it's right to teach him by giving him mango you know if mingo works to help feel inspired to go to the bathroom. Then i'm down that does that make sense So yeah i think there's so much that were walking. That little lied around. I want is to learn to sit in his chair sue that he can circle words that he can learn how to read now. Sometimes he's autistic. Tendencies keep him from sitting in a chair. And i want him to to overcome the things. That are that that challenge in that. Keep him from threatening And so am. I think it's that. Tricky line of am. I saying that ace is that he needs to be punished for not liking to sit in a chair now and i think that that might be there is kind of an old school. Aba that was much more that is seen in darker late that i don't know a lot about that. She used in the last years. But i think there is. What you're saying. Mercedes about intense is really important. And and i'm and i'm no expert. I'm just trying to find what works for my kid so that he can flourish be independent Yeah it's like the it's at its foundation where we got foundationally. And if we're using. Aba therapy to make ourselves as neuro. Typical able bodied people feel more comfortable around a person with down to earth with autism or down syndrome or anything or are we using it so that they're more like us like more like a typical. Then yeah i think that's problematic. That's what i also hear you saying. Yeah and i and that's what we've talked about on this podcast all the time we talk about that like at its foundation. Why are we doing things for our kids but down syndrome like why do we do. All the therapy is and why did we do all of this different learning and the diets and all of that is it so that they're more like me is it so that they're less less down syndrome. And that's been a the journey. That i went on and had in my aha moment when mason was five of like wait a second. No no no no. I'm not in all this to make macy less more like her typical peers. That's not why i'm doing any of this. And then i think that is. The trick is the as apparent now as a caregiver finding that constantly checking like i'm constantly checking myself you and my when mason is or august is behaving in a way. That makes me uncomfortable or i'm worried how others perceive them then i got put the brakes on. Why and try to really understand why i will do or not do a certain behavioral therapy or food or you know all the things that we have at our disposal to help our kids and i think at the end of the day we we. I and i hope. I hope others do things so that their kid can be the best version of themselves and in my kids case with down syndrome the best version of themselves. They have down syndrome right. Like it's not like i'm therapies away down syndrome and i think that's what i hear autistic adults saying like out my best version out my best i'm thriving i'm autistic and that means that i will stem or that means that i will make you uncomfortable because this is how i am in the world and there needs to be a greater acceptance of dot. Yes he also wanna add one last thing that as we like year as we hear and as like self advocates. Get the opportunity to be heard. Which i think is a really beautiful thing that social media has brought to like the forefront or multiple like a ton of different voices is that they're entitled to their opinion and we as parents can find our way through that to hear it and to honor it and respect it and then like just glean what we can from it like. I just feel the way of so many parents hearing from advocates. That you know. Aba was wrong or such strong feelings on certain things. And we don't know the full capacity that story of like how everything was being approached but we can hear that in gleaned firm that and then like go as parents and be with all the voices in education that we have sought out ourselves about autism about down syndrome and apply it how we want to for our children with their best interest in mind. The guy think sometimes we can be like here too much information especially from a self advocate where we want respect that and do but then also okay like how do i parent within that. You know you can feel.

Hey what if you let your baby watch. Tv you're like look at a screen to an episode one. That's familiar right so you can certainly do that. You can get in front of the baby and hold up a screen and babies will usually lift their heads and look at the screen and then stop crying and enjoy their tummy. Time a little bit more or you could use like auditory. Sensory books is another study with with or even without mother attention though again. When parents are attending their babies babies tend to do a little do better but one of the challenge with infant research is it. It's hard to find a lot of infants to do to be participants in your study. So a lot of the previous studies have only one participant and they also might use items that either families don't have access to or that are actually not recommended for infants invincible. You're staying at ipad screens really so the only way to get tummy time to go well as a screen. Well it sounds like a solution. That's going to lead to another problem.

He's i don't know about you know about you. I know you've been here the whole time that i think a lot of people probably assume that our favorite interest is podcast or talk about behavior analysis. Well those are great interest. I don't they would be our most preferred interests or are unique of all interests. And speaking of unique contrasts we probably could do a whole episode about unique interests in how we use unique interests in our practice and to do. So we're very fortunate to have a special guest. Who is joining us to talk about this topic. When are we not waste any time and introduce that special guest over five years. I think she is one of the first people to email us to say thank for making the show and good job on the show. So we're very excited to get her on herself. And that's to mika meadows from the i love aba blog. Thank you so much for coming on the show tonight. Of course. I am super super excited to be here. Thank you for having. We are very happy as well. And since unique interest was a topic that you are also uniquely interested in or not uniquely because all four of us are talking about on an episode. Why don't we spend a little time saying what our own unique interests are. Maybe you could start by telling us all about yourself for our listeners. Who maybe haven't been to your blog. And then maybe some of your favorite interests. So i am gay living in atlanta. I entered the field when i was in college. I was a psychology major. Who at the time knew nothing about eight. And i started working with one family and then over time started seeing more and more families in my area and kind of started to realize that. Hey i think. I might want to do this. Like permanently as a career and at that point decided to get certified and kinda started on that whole journey. Since i've been a clinician. i've done a little bit of everything. I've done school-based i've done clinic based i've done home. Based at the moment. I'm primarily doing a lot of consulting kind of professional development ce creation kind of work. I mostly work with school aged clients. I'd say twelve and younger and kind of my passions clinically would be new hire training working with brand new clinicians also really really loved family support caregiver training and let's see so special interests they change because i think for most people they would say that what they're super super into is subject to vary so at the moment a lot of marvel a loved one vision i love streaming of variety shows on netflix hulu. I love relaxation days. Which is what. I call by off days where i have nothing to do and i take it very seriously. I do nothing so they vary a lot and if you ask me a month from now or if you had asked me a month ago i probably would have had different answers floyd with interest. Isn't it you know like change.

Gosh that's such a good question. I really think it expands to all other practice areas. I don't think we report sociability enough. I don't think we think about it enough.

I'm from goodson. Twin peaks is megan from your town. Just make a lot of fields and farms. So i ended up going to western michigan for undergrad because i was a music major so i played flute and piccolo and i wanted to be a music teacher to begin with and i got to western and i was super nerdy surprise surprise and i was in the honors college so four the honors college in your first year. You have to take what they call. Cluster classes are clustered horses courses that hang together by topic so i selected psychology and biology able have labs and coming from my village of kansas city. We didn't have anything. Psychology related in highschool no courses whatsoever. I wasn't interested in. It didn't have any kind of background in it and really bought of psychology like another person on the street in psychology of sitting in an armchair for of that wasn't wasn't interested but in week two. I changed my major though. Just like every parent's dream of runaway after buying expensive instrument. This and i did that because the psychology class was just so enthralling. So i was taking in upper level classes. Mike i introduce like and it was insured. Aba with a rat lab so every principal. We are learning in the classroom. I was seeing in real life with my rat who i named mr moustapha lease it was fantastic. I just fell in love with it i. I never thought that was psychology nabet. That had anything to do with psychology. So change my major and at western it. It shouldn't really be considered a bachelor's in psychology bachelor some behavior analysis the classes are all very behaviorally oriented and we have to do a practicum to graduate. I ended up doing five again. Because i'm really nerdy. But it took that line. I know to figure out what i really wanted to do. And where my reinforces were in the feel. The first practicum was the common practicum. It was e i b. i children with autism. And i felt the worst person on this planet. I have to be honest. I would come home and cry. Because i didn't like it. I didn't like working with kids. And i thought who split doesn't like working with kids. I just didn't like it. I thought it was a terrible terrible person in at that time.

I liked about what you were talking about in in in kind of your end piece is that you. We weren't really sure what the teachers were doing in the classroom. And that's kind of how i article starts off as teachers have this monumental task of providing safe educational experience and then they said combating unruly behaviour. That just made me laugh. And i don't know why did but unruly just seems funny to say in an article. I giggled a little bit. And i don't know why and so one thing you said you know like maybe when people were using. The mindfulness strategies potentially a decrease in challenging behaviors and then teachers are more likely to implement those proactive strategies when challenging behaviors. Low because they have the space and time to do so right. The classrooms all crazy. It's really hard to be proactive. Because there isn't a moment to be proactive. it's all reactive in so these authors positive that mindfulness training can help improve potentially classroom behavior in young students and they cited a few research articles. That said that. Mindfulness training can improve attention and self regulation but sample sizes in these studies. Have been really small in not diverse in socio economic status or race so their purpose was to look at. I love this. They used a mindful school's curriculum. And i looked it up mindful schools. It's mindful schools dot org and they have educator training. They have school support. They have resources. They have their own podcast which is crazy beside the research that they used to develop their curriculum. Yes i always. That's my first step. I go to whenever some go. Check out this resource. I go where it. Let me see your citations. They do okay. They have them. They're mindfulness dot org. There's tons of further reading.

Amelia bellefonds found her calling seventeen years ago while she was teaching with head. Start a program that provides early childhood education to low income children and families. She worked with all kinds of kids over the years but one in particular stood out. He was a four year old boy with frequent tantrums and very little verbal communication. Amelia and our fellow teacher wanted to help him so they began researching his behavior and discovered that he might be autistic wanting to learn more. Amelia began studying applied behavior analysis. A scientific approach that can be used to reduce challenging behavior and teach new skills and children with autism. Amelia liked aba strategies because they're easy for non-professionals to learn and can have lasting benefits for the child if they're used consistently not too long after. She started her research. She ended up switching jobs. She wanted to understand more so she decided pursue a master's degree and become a board certified behavior analyst again specializing in working with children with autism. And this is what brings us to the side hustle part of the story. Amelia started a blog called accessible. Aba dot com hoping to share insights to help parents understand more about the field and their child soon. Afterwards around christmas two thousand eighteen. Her twin sister. Diana came for a visit. Diana enjoyed writing so she offered to write some post. The goal of the blog was simply to share information with both sisters working away. They started posting one or two times a week as they built momentum. They increased to two to three times a week. After six months they were posting almost every day looking back. Amelia says she would have started posting daily to the blog right from the beginning. But it's always better to pick up the pace as you go along than lose momentum by slowing down. They started out blogging just for parents but eventually expanded to have a separate log for each of their target audiences parents teachers and professionals altogether these blogs get over forty thousand page views a month they also started offering courses on you to though now they self host courses well sisters celebrated their first sale overtaxed even now more than two years into their business they still celebrate every sale with a text some days. It feels like texting all day long in addition to online courses accessible. Aba also offers three levels of membership per nine dollars a month or ninety five dollars a year members get self paced learning and downloadable content. They can pay a bit more and get all that plus monthly videos and a monthly free product. They can pay a bit more. Still get everything. Plus thirty minute monthly one on one call. Before the pandemic hit the sisters had plans to attend a couple of live events but when everything was cancelled they decided to double their efforts on the website they also put together some of the content they already had and self published a book on amazon called. Aba fundamentals for parents. Finally they're starting to post on youtube as a way to extend their reach ameliorate. Miss that is difficult as the pandemic has been it's also been a catalyst is pushed them to work even harder. They're bringing in around fifteen hundred dollars a month however they've really just started to focus on monetization for most of two thousand twenty. They were focused solely on growing the blog and developing those courses. The pandemic hasn't been the only challenge plus opportunity. They've also had to deal with moving to a new state. Changing jobs illnesses and kits despite the business. Amelia says. they've gained a lot from the experience. There's a feeling of control over the future. they don't get working for someone else. They know that if they want to make more money they have to come up with a better product or offer improve their marketing. Reach a new audience or take some other action one of those things or perhaps all of them is exactly what they plan to do.
President Trump Continues To Deny Election Results And President-Elect Biden Plans for His Presidency
"Briefing on monocle. Twenty four and welcome to today's edition of the briefing with me. Andrew miller the white house continues to echo with the post-election tantrum of us president donald trump who spent the weekend insisting series of the kind of all capital tweets which always indicate an ordered mind at work that november thirds election was rigged which wasn't and he won which he didn't president elect joe biden however seems to have decided that he has greater priorities than worrying about any further legal challenges. Launched by rudy giuliani from garden center. Parking lots and is focusing on plans for reviving a hopefully imminently post pandemic economy on joined by suzanne lynch washington correspondent for the irish times season. Welcome as always to the briefing. We'll look at joe biden's plans shortly but first of all is donald trump's wining actually gaining any traction. Is anybody taking him seriously. And i was there at the march on saturday now wasn't a million maga- march of as he'd predicted but there were tens of thousands of americans. They're waving flags and singing hymns in some cases holding signs saying the steel and alleging that the election has been stolen so he is getting a lot of traction from supporters and on conservative media gems. Here with on fox news for example bush. Look the facts are. The joe biden has won the election and as these various states moved to sir officially certify those election results in each stage. Who's is going to be happening in the next week or so. I think that it's going to become more likely. The deriving will become clear on the wall to donald trump. That it's time to go. And unfortunately though he is digging in as you say at science no sign of him conceding jaw and of course. The question is what's doing to american democracy. We've got a lot of 'small. I want a sizable minority of this country. Who believe the dumb from did not win the election even though he did so. I think it's a sorry state of affairs here. In this country that we now have a president who is refusing to concede does president elect joe biden basically appear to be a policy of ignoring him as far as possible. Yes yes. I think you're right out of there on. It's quite a clever policy. So it's almost like a child in the coroner's having a tantrum don't give them any attention. He just get an expert system toxic of strategy been taken by joe biden. He was at questioned on this last week and he did say it was an embarrassment and it was going to damage ed donald trump legacy but he did step back from launching a full scale attack on trump at particularly there is an issue now that a federal agency here. The gsa is using to at handover resources and information. If you'd like to the incoming president like it should so joe biden would be his rights there to criticize ups in clever to be averse holding back. If you know i put the moment so that strategy described exactly what he's adopting. I think one of the reasons he's doing that is because he knows that a lot of donald trump supporters at be this way and he has said during his campaign he wants to beautify reach out to the other side. If you like so. I think he's trying to tag anais and try not to inflame further tensions at a stage trying to lower the temperature. So that's the strategy. But i do think along with this goes on. It could become more problematic for example if they really are not going to hand over these resources. Gsa people are expecting. Maybe this week they will would. If that doesn't happen with then we really could see things become more tense here and with the biden campaign that i'm saying listen hang on. We need this information on his time feud handed over. We will doubtless cross that bridge when we get to it but for the moment what do we know of what. Joe biden plans to put into action. Once he does become president on january twentieth. Well he has said that in his first few days he's going sign executive orders whereby we expect him to rejoin the paris climate accord for example. Aba expect to happen at more. Also maybe something on immigration we for example. There's been the rumbling row about daca. There are the end. The kids known as dreamers. Young people who came to america brought to america by their parents illegally and they had been given amnesty essentially under the obama administration trump reversed. It got stuck in the courts but we expect maybe by to do something on this however other plans is due to unveil economic plan of some kind or make a speech today at in delaware but a lot of that is gonna be dependent on whether he democrats have controlled and the sanish at that looks unlikely it comes to senate runoff races in georgia in early january democrats have to win vocals raises which i think very tall ask if they don't if the only way one they're not in control of the senate republicans are and that is gonna make difficult for biden to push through some of his his policy issues on tax for example even energy and he's talking about not doing in green you deal but actually quite a progressive platform in terms of energy infrastructure. So that could be stymied by the by sanish. if republicans are in control there. What do we know as well about what. President-elect biden wants to do differently in terms of handling the pandemic obviously. There is good news on the vaccine. And there's been further good news just within the last hour as a. Us vaccine is now claiming to be ninety five percent Effective or thereabouts But that's still going to take weeks and months to implement a new cases are clearing one hundred thousand today. What does he want. America to do differently until that vaccine is ready to roll when it's been quite interesting in the last few days because one of the maggie appointed a new advisory board on corona virus is one of the members of the board has been doing interviews and the words lockdown has entered the lexicon here which on a national level and a lot of people are against us at here in this country. And you know nobody has mentioned the idea that we should have national lockdown and vigers now has netted the biden campaign has pushed back on that day. No no this is. Just one of my advisers is what we're considering so that would be considered very much to nuclear option here. As joe biden has to kind of tread carefully. The issue here is at each stage has a lot of power about how they handle the krona virus. So he's going to have his highness flow trying to add. Push through suggestions to republican control states. You know the governor saif kosher for example you know is a bit in. Denial about corona virus doesn't want many restrictions like high was joe biden going to ensure a national mandate for anything. It's going to be difficult and at the moment he has been talking about mask wearing. Because there's still a lot of resistance to the us in this country. As i saw on saturday after march were few people were wearing masks. That seemed to be what he's focusing on at the moment and the other thing would be my distribution of the vaccine making that more equitable already. The governor of new york has criticized on trump's plans. That saying that you know well off people will end up getting the vaccine not poor people who are more affected by cold so we expect to see him focusing more on that more equitable distribution of acting when we get faxing point suzanne ledge. Thank you as always. That was suzanne lynch with the irish times in washington.

WHO's professor of Law and society at Griffith University in Brisbane Australia. He's also adjunct professor of law at Queensland University of Technology and Research Associated University College Under Center for Blockchain Technologies, he who suggests on the Bloomberg professional globalization of law and the technology in law. But come John. Hello. Thank you. Sure. Yeah. So I want to start with one of your recent people, professions and expertise hog machine learning, and blockchain redesigning the landscape of professional knowledge and organization. In invite you say machine learning has entered the world of the professions. The different impacts automation will have huge impacts on the nature of work and society. Engineering architecture and medicine or early and enthusiastic adopters. Other professions especially law at late you say at in some cases with leptons adopters. could you talk about you know sort of the landscape all? Of Law, profession and. They today in terms of opting these technologies. Certainly Louis interesting because it's a very old profession is. Often considered one of the. Original traditional professions along with medicine and the church. And in a sense law has used different kinds of technology might say I mean does it? Based around writing. And then the printing press and So on yet that. It's always being based on a craft. A skill which the individual person is that enables them to do, whatever is quote if you like and. said, there's never been a lot of room for any kind of automation. Certainly, the has been space for using. A people who are not fully qualified as low as about as paralegals, people like that, who will do a lot of repetitive work document checking and things like that and so on. But what will get into now is the situation where automation through machine learning. There's other kinds of artificial intelligence. is able to start constructing documents example contracts. Check dollop a documents for particular clauses and things like that mature they're up to date and this incense is. Replacing now, the kind of work that noise will do. So I think in some ways more more of of the profession of law is gonNA be subject to automation, but distinction I would many because I think it's quite important here is that A lot of what lawyers do. Is actually quite. Active that that that that the drafting contracts overtime or or they're reviewing documents to some sort or another or they're getting through particular. Negotiation. And so you know a lot of it is the same, but they build up the expertise through doing these same kinds of were over and over again and What we're now finding is that instead of having young lawyers coming in and doing what you might call the grunt work of checking documents and going through discovery applications where he goes through the size boxes of evidence to decide. which are the appropriate documents you want the emails, the invoices order, this sort of stuff that is the kind of work which is lending itself to automation. And, and so that his taking away a lot of the work which is used for trading purposes with young lawyers and is just doing it much quicker. will quickly I mean More efficiently in many ways and probably expensive much much expensive a Lotta. This work is being outsourced to you know legal process outsourcing India or Philippines South Africa places like that. So yeah, that's that's right and so in some ways, the group of lawyers who do the work which requires the skill, the judgment. Is Reducing in some ways. That pool is getting smaller. Yeah Yeah it's it's interesting. The the distinction that you make between automation. And in my job and let's call it decision making right which is you know a lot of work in the business side of this. So for example. in the nineties in large pharmaceutical company So you think about you know rnd. People might think it has really complex selection of programs that design of them, portfolio management, risk management, all those decisions. Genuine companies be say well, senior managers with lots of experience and intuition make those decisions really well right and so that's statement would automatically implied that machines can really do much there. But what we find in the mid nineties says that is systematic analysis of data make those decisions. Don't better. Actually, I've Tom to humans humans. Always seem to make decisions. These are typically bonding the decision. So if you go back and look at it, alternative experiment has not been wrong. So we have no date to say it was a good decision at typically. So human scaffold, fifty percents of making good decisions So do you know just throwing a coin or letting monkey make those decisions so? Yup We found that even complex decision making that humans hold. you know close to their you know kind of domain I'm not necessarily. So we have machines That could do that much better than I. Don't know there's an analog of that in in law I I. Think The may be actually I mean Two three years ago the royal. Society in England decided to arrange a working party on machine learning. One of the things that they put together a a roundtable on machine learning professions resolved to talk about that night and I talked about the history of professions in technology and. and. I think one of the peculiar things that came out to in relation to law is that law. Has always been a sort of on its own. If you think about medicine, for example, medicines always had the teacher hospital institution that sort of straddles the academic quilt and the practice walls and brings those people together and as a result. INCORPORATES loss of, scientific, work. Engineering work as well computing work and things like that. And that's been the first teaching hospital king into existence in in the French revolution in Seventeen eighty-nine. A long history of that. If you look at law, there was nothing equivalent to that whatsoever and there is in fact, actually a big gap between what academy does on what the practitioners in your do so that As a result as before law has come to this a quite late but what we are. Finding I think is that Certainly the management consultancy finding is that because of the nature of a lot of what goes on in legal office a remarkable amount of it can be automated. So what we are getting now is companies setting themselves up to do this automated work. So. We have companies which do nothing but contract our instruction formation sort of company. The typical lawyer would would say to a client Do you WANNA contract classes. Yes I want this for this. And loyal galway draft contract back with it, and then in the con- comes back against as I need another contract, you go through the same process. which is good for the lawyer but not necessarily good kind. What we're finding now is the company's not can think of a few of them that will, in fact, go into the company's show order contracts. Let's see the entire. Corpus of contracts you've got there and they will analyze them. And basically say, all right. We can create a new contract in automated way fairly easily it may need some modification according to special circumstances but on the whole, it's fairly standard and and they can do that INNOVA systematic world meaning the contracts are reviewed that checked. If they're going to expire marketing, you want an unable just the system will cope with that if you're. Yeah. So yeah. No No. No so I was just going to say yes. So that the distinction you make, you know in terms education sort of systematic graduate level education that because as you say, it is low in one sense of soft proficient. You say in called professions like made it to text reengineering this team has a strong concern ensuring that expertise applied in the public interest when as low little bit different from from bad and economics in some sense sort of in the same same vein we have now made economics at really odd. of mathematics you know north of analytics there. Whether they are actually useful from policy making perspective is left to debate but at least it has been an attempt to make this make economic video hard. So so I don't know A. Fascination has been in in law I very much that will happen in law. Oh there things are beginning to happen I mean let me just boob. At. One example I learned in that workshop that I mentioned the Royal Society held. With somebody from the engineering profession talking about. The difference in skills between people who above forty I'm below forty he said. If he he was about Forty Years Austin design an aeroplane, takeout pen and paper Pencil, and paper and. I don't know anyone under forty could do that would know how to do that go onto a computer program undecided there. So you can see that the incorporation of technology into the academy through to the actual. Occupation. Than phones and things is is already a standard and they're in law. It isn't law. As you said, it's still very much a soft skill although I will argue that there is a difference between the way nor is viewed in different parts of the world. So in the United States A law is I think more tilted towards the sciences. So low in economics is one of the big things in the. US. So you got a lot of people working in the of lower economics who might go onto antitrust work no competition work and things like that which across a lot of economics, mathematics and Statistics and so on. In, say a Europe Australia and so on. Law is more allied towards the humanities. And the classics. So it doesn't have that kind of scientific underpinning in that way. So anything that's going to change in these parts if you like is going to be something that's going to be imported from outside. And is going to have a very dramatic impact when whether it does An and I think that's yet to happen. I don't think there's been sort of Cambrian explosion. If you like in in law, the will be one I'm sure but but law has an advantage over engineering economics or the other areas you might. That's With the nature of the rule of law and absent justice is since law as a a way of ordering society is absolutely crucial to everything else. Then, Law and lawyers will say will look you know we have a special status here is different amid leave engineer. We certainly want to make sure bridges stay up. We don't want down but we can design different kinds of bridges. We can design different kinds of legal bills, but they're also the fundamental rules If you want to you know if you're an engineering company and you want to build a bridge in a different country, you're going to have to do it on the basis of the legal rules, which will be just vise by the lawyers according to the country's there in so on. So in in that was what? I might put in a special category if you live. Yea. Yea. Let me let me push NBA John. So. The. The conference that you mentioned you know the Internet is under forty and engineers at. So so one could argue you know from an engineering perspective could argue e- It sexually dangerous. To not use machines to build aircraft the goes you know all the technology that cap today actually help us make the trap lot safer. granted. If you sit down with a blank sheet of paper and Pencil, you might get the principal right. But, but the technology has advanced so much that you really have to use. Technology to do so in some sense, engineering is pushed back. that. I argue this myself then they were naive engineering school. I had a V exposed at my daughter bent to school. She used the same physics book. Twenty, five. meter. I argue that that is sort of backward because data speed no need for an engineer to really learn Newtonian physics anymore because it is prescriptive, it's deterministic can make machines, learn it very quickly and so why spend all? Right. So so then you know if you think about the the law field. I wonder if there is a senior argument that is to say Dan and tape really good lawyer casts lot of intuitions dot expedients to crap something Contract or a discourse, but then maybe the machine scan actually do it even better We haven't really tested that hypothesis yet. Right be almost have this idea that humans are always dominant. Or machines but that the not be true as technology lancers. So what do you think about that in the in the? It's a very important point actually because the. American bosses. being modifying its ethical rules recently to say that lawyers have a duty and obligation to keep up to date with technology. So we already know the technology is now a an important part and I have to say when when I say the word technology, I mean this at all kinds of levels from what you can do with Microsoft word for example, it strays plug ins all the way up to artificial intelligence IBM, Watson, or something like that So that if if lawyers become. A. Uses of technology whether this small firms or big firms or what have you a under the Aba now they they actually have an obligation to make sure that they are up to date. They can't just say we didn't know what we were doing. So I think in that respect, there is a there was a move. The other move that is taking place is actually the push from from the clients. Now, this you have to look into ways one is with corporate clients. The corporation seen US lawyers have to use noise if you'd like want their work done. PHILOS- money on Chiba they wanted to more efficiently They don't want the best piece of work every time they want something that works and they want officiant. UTA A and so on. So it was interesting I think a few years ago. The General Counsel Cisco. Actually made a speech. Saying that he expected his. Lawyers Law firms who worked for the company to be reducing their fees year on year. Now, that's the opposite of what lawyers normally do, which is to raise them year on year. So say that that's one push which is. Very profound push now, coming from the client himselves who are using the beginning to use their procurement departments in in the companies and things like that to help purchase legal services the other aspects which is just as important in this is if you look at the role of lawyers and individuals. So if you is what access to to legal services, it's expensive lawyers are not cheap they charge our money We don't know how to judge the quality of their work and so on. because. There was a credence which we just know that So. On this is where technology can begin to step in and provide services which are. Efficient and often quite. what very well for the individual saying that this. Technology can be seen to be improving access to justice a Lotta people. Yeah. Yeah yes. I want to come back to this. John. I think this is a very important point. So bent on put has a lot of uncertainty. Uncertainty maybe not not the right term, but it's called deterministic. It shows beatty ability and so the determination of quality it's not as easy as hard media India nearing or. Right business economics legal all sorts of well foreign that category and the application of technology sort of a different different meaning there but I want to touch on one of the things that you say in the paper, and that is you mentioned this before and that's about training training the next generation. So you savior regulating bodies professions are involved in the collection and reproduction of knowledge intended to be used by the entire body professionals, and so there was an expectation here that you know seeing it professionals. Is Providing the wisdom that knowledge mission to train the next generation now in a technology driven. regime. discuss vacations right. Our expert is going to be a computer engineer in the future. And so so how does that work from from cleaning and knowledge Asian will I think this is This is a crucial issue in it's one which the profession hasn't. Really. Got To grips with yet I think because you think of technology in terms of Predictive analytics a document review and things like this most law schools are not preparing students for this they may be a a a a causal to on some aspect of technology, but it's not something which lawyers themselves are learning. So I think what is going to happen is we're going to find a blending of skills occurring. So law firms will be sense having to bring in a range of technologists who perhaps have. A scales a straddle, both sides of the lines, the lawyers like this too I think I think we're going to find an avangard Who will begin to develop skills that allow them to talk to both sides of the line, the tech people and? Below people if you likes and there will be people who will acquire develop these skills as well but that's that's still some way down the line I didn't think we're anywhere near there yet, and part of the reason for that I think is that you know law is still a very highly regulated profession and and the regulators themselves are in the same situation they are unsure about what is going to happen and they also feel they have an obligation to. Not only ensure that. Customers clients and consumers are protected but in some ways, the profession is protected to if you like so. You know it's it's a it's a fine balancing. There I. Think. It's a fight balancing act and you'd say if the changing changing things. So going back, you know you care as an individual eighteen status of expert. Some form of encapsulation of knowledge and analysis occurs enabling professional experts, derived diagnoses, decisions, and conclusion wrapped late. and you make some distinctions. Type of learning that. Human? Beings. That the distinction between doing drive and become a gift and laster Yes yes. Yes I think that's important. So the the the the principle behind this is that Individuals can acquire a lot of knowledge in in various areas. So as I say learning how to drive a car, you learn how to change gear you though with the speeds. Braking different rates, conditions, and things like that. So. If you WANNA take that further and become a formula one drive or something like that. Then you have to undergo a very different kind of training and that kind of thing becomes a lot more collective rather than individual because you start to you're you're going to be in a group that is gonna be doing a particular kind of our driving. If you like everybody in the group has to understand what each other is doing that group, you can't have people going right a racetrack at two hundred miles an hour or thinking individually feel like they have to have a collective consciousness. About. How to drive in that situation? That's nothing like how? You and I might drive. I'm not saying we bad drivers just saying spreading very different. So I think professional work is not. That different from this in a way. So once you you can go through school and you can do your law degree and you can learn your low. We can learn you engineering's this applies to or professions really. But in order to become a professional in order to become somebody who can operate function within that. Group if you like you then have yourself have to develop collective consciousness and and one way of thinking about it is that we we can kind of tacit knowledge. This assorted knowledge you learn on the job from people, which is not always articulated in a precise formulate kind way but it's something you pick up from the way. Somebody does something you just recognize aw that that's how they've done that might not be. Written down anywhere or anything like that. But you know that's different from now exiting differently from the way that wise doing I think X.'s doing it better I and you and you just, and you can absorb that. That's what I mean by this kind of tacit knowledge and that comes about from the professional context. As how the professional context develops becomes absolutely crucial to how you introduce new ways of doing things new my daddy's new skills new outlooks if you like and I. Think this is where we're on the cost of of this beginning to develop I mean we we know it's got to be done quite how it's going to be done. is yet to be. So. So let me make a statement John and I want I want your reaction to it so eat in hard sciences eight years against again medicine. Expertise has about a consistent happy of remorse. Whereas enor- economics and business in general, let's say expertise is not about the ability to apply rules but to deal with. and at and if that is true, it has lot of implications rate. It has implications as to how we might divide work. Between. And machine in the future. And the skills that universities need to impart on on on new graduates are also quite different. So I always argued in the business. engineering contexts that universities having changed the dog they get mentioned before they're using the same. Using the same. Out Thirty four years without asking the question are those skills relevant, anymore or more importantly watch. Really relevant for a human being in the future rate. do you agree with that that expertise assert more about dealing exceptions apply? Putting it actually. I. I can see the logic behind what you. Saying I think what distinguishes? A good professional whether it's a good engineer good architect or good lawyer or doctor is is somebody who has a certain? This may sound strange but it's the. Imagination. Creativity. about. Kind of flare that allows them to function on the nausea they they've got and developed over the years and the experience. Gathered from Nova pitching what they'd be doing over the years and so on, and it allows them to see around things in ways which they perhaps would. I can give you an example if you like a law. So I'm in in Germany and some other countries. For example, there's a particular way of bundling together mortgage securities I I won't go to detail about this, but this statute that enables you do it. And then you can sell these securities and get money. In certain countries, the UK, the US, and so on. This, NICI. So in a sense to put this kind of a a deal together it. Couldn't be done if you live. So a bank came to one of the large English law firms and said, look we wanted we want to replicate this in in the UK, want to set a market this we're not the statues off there. What can you do and what was interesting was that the law firm then went back to first principles lawyers who were looking at this went back I suppose they looked at some vape basic areas of law matter your trust. And contract from what have you? I'm from that they constructed elite supplement that looked very much like the one in Germany, but without stat sheet and they tested it and it worked. Out To be credibly successful. So much so that the German government started German legal profession started to complain because they said. You can only do this by statute and these we find a way of doing it three. I suppose using law and there it is an they were vowed shops by but that was a particular example if you like of of what you were talking about, they took the exceptions they went back to first principles and said you know or How would we get? This is where we gotta get to, and this is a way right at the beginning what are the steps we need to take and and? And that's what a good loyal will do if you. Right right? Yeah. So that's very important point. So you in your paper dawn as the DREYFUSS and rice note that the proficient performer immersed in the world of skillful activities sees what needs to be done. But decides how to do it. So as we move into a and other technologies, I think it's important point it is. Right from Dad benefactor culture we have been using humans as you mentioned before in lots of with meted activities big not designed for humans I would I would contend enjoy doing things over and over again, and if you had thought of doing that, yeah, because they have to do it for living right and so so we should be moving to word It would where anything that is with pita on delegated to the machine at automation in the bottom of that and Appealed autonation you can have intelligent automation you can have you know reinforcement learning those types of things you have some aspects of intelligence into the into the two. And deploy humans Don't Miss. They're really good at in some case. I'm. So you know we've been studying the green for ages be our no close. It feels to understand mother. Heck it does You know it's not neat learning it. Oh, BBC of. thirty years ago as see that person again, you could see you could you could have a feeling. Then you've seen that before and and what the brain has done actually not only as he that pattern but also age that matter intuitively for thirty years and say, yes, that face I, guess before. and. So there are some superpowers the brain has reaped have been applying the all all. So for a technology might allow. Look I. Think Technology will allow us to incredibly complex things without having to think about too much I. Mean if you look at the way a port functions, for example, any major port these days they've got millions of containers and ships going through them all the time. So there's a lot of paper going through the you those charter parties, bills of lading guarantees. So the lot of legal work that's being done it, it's all quite standard stuff. I mean everybody. KNOWS, what needs to be done and so on. Now, some people are beginning to think while the best way to handle a port if you like I for everybody should know is to put everything that's going on in the poor into a blockchain so that you can see the whole supply chain. You see when something comes in, you can determine when the goods are being offloaded. When they're being shipped, you can stop making the payments as a result of the. Operation of the smart contracts if you like, and the whole thing would be just one quite seamless. In some ways without that much human intervention really just need oversight Some bits of coordination so on. But at the moment is still a a lot of humans are vote in that shipping people, law people, all sorts of things which is. I think insane. That's a waste of resources. We know that there are people who have all kinds of problems that require that creative flair she like as so why waste money on the routine stuff when you could develop skills to the the real need if you like in that way? Yeah Yeah. So I, want that some that bit that John Blockchain, for example, as you mentioned. So so one reason especially in the professions like law and business humans have an advantage justice dimension of trust. and you know at least our generation we don't really. At eighty level, right. So so having that. Human human touch is still extremely important for us. Now, technologies like Blockchain, for example, actually allows that trust to be tensely decoupled, right? Yeah, and I think I think you're right. Look I. Think I mean one of the reasons we make contracts is because We, don't trust each other. So we we devised these documents with all the conditions in them. Something goes wrong. This is what will happen things like that and so on. What are the interesting things? You know people really rely on contracts are met you. You draw up a contract. And the to business people stick him in the drawer I never look at again less something really really fundamental goes wrong but they know sumit doesn't that never look at that again. So you say value of the contract, what did it actually do if you look at some of the Asian countries say like Taiwan or parts of China, you have a assistant coach Guanxi, which is where people developed effective relationships by knowing each other over a period of time around business that allows them to develop trust it. So You know there are different ways of of handling trust, but we we seem to spend a lot of time on trying to minimize something You know which we don't really do a lot of if you like. So I think one of the advantages of of blockchain is that it just it removes a lot of this from from the equation if there's certain things you know that can happen. as a result off if this thing that systems. Lead happened And you know. As, long as you've got oversight and you can see what's going on than. You don't need to be too concerned about it. It will just do what it needs to do in that way and So. Again. That's still very much in the early stages, but we are seeing situations where supply chains A shipping goods from one country to another can actually be done under smart contracts through a blockchain. Technology if you live. That that is now happening I associate goodful dealing with things like gum counterfeiting if you're. Producing. Particular high-quality could site move our phones or particular pharmaceutical products and so on you know it's one way of guaranteeing the quality of the product is you couldn't I say look you can examine the whole supply chain or the data is there. And you know his Eq- code look at it and you get the whole thing going all the way back The. Again, issues around that if you're dealing with the digital. Is Much easier once you start dealing with physical products then you have. A question of how do you get that first initial digitization of the physical if you'd like to goes on so though some people I know here in Australia who? Run A company called Beef Ledger, which is trying to export beef straight beef to China using the blockchain supply chain, which will. Guarantee the security, and the quality of the goods to the Chinese consumer APP because having problems with this before. But I will tell you now do doing something like that does require that the people you are dealing with. You're going to set this up with You have to have a trusting relationship with you before you can set up a technology that will do away with the So we're still in that. That's really early days. I think another a lot of time way to go right Yeah, but the technology works it. Clean potential one could argue contracts exist because they probably known performance if you have a technology that drives that probably the of non-performance zero, then you can actually get rid of for contract. Yeah limit. It is. Not. Goes back to that earlier point I made that. Most most contracts are fairly standard. You know a routine things they're there to. Record a series of transactions payments that have gone on between people without the to do much. If you like you know once you you're you're doing the business, the contract just kind of records that in perpetuity. So the small contract just takes that into a different area and an an actually does the whole implementation and execution without people to be involved in that too much and there's something goes wrong. But if it if it all goes right then back it is done you need to you don't you think about it Right. Yeah. Hasn't been jumping to another are forthcoming people globalization law at. A time of crisis in the? Global Lawyer and so in the say Nikolai Condom Nieve a Russian economists in the nineteen thirties believed the worst economy operates long sixty year cycles Then he called K. Braves. And you safeguarding coronavirus analysis, the fifth psycho young's from nineteen eighty to twenty thirty. It's you save twenty, nineteen forthcoming John You might have. I think so I think say because I, tell you off the what's happening this year I thought my good I couldn't My God. I was just. Owners because you know a contract device these waves up into into what he calls four seasons spring summer or winter at, and we're in the winter off this fifth cycle if you like this is. All the bad stuff happens and he's news war. Famine Disease I think wait a minute that sounds Yes yes. That's exactly right. A. But one of the interesting things about contractors was that you know he he a because he's A. Solid economists are installing a dip executed. By the way you know he he got fed up ninety that was the end of Nikolai unfortunately but he. He said instead of know if you like the ownership of the means of production are being the determinate for changeover from system system, he said it's it's technology and and that the technology will drive you out of the downswing of the last cycle into the upswing of the new cycle, and and the way that works is the win. You're in this kind of winter period because of the kind of economic. Gloom pervades if you like people tend to hold back in subsurface vestment in terms of technological innovation of what have you and so a lot of energy resources, resources, money capital if you like builds up to a second point when people say we're GONNA go for this is this is it? And that's when if you like technology comes to the fall on, really drives it forward. So from that perspective, what he's saying is that you know come right about twenty thirty. If. Things are going slowly now regarding technology they're going to speed up. In. This period and that's when it will. You know really also take take off and people have looked back over our preceding cycles and they've you know it works if you like not just their. Fantasy theory there are also the people who do Cleo dynamics in history these the quantitative historians and they've done a similar kind of analysis of historical periods and said, yeah, you know there are all these citrical. Processes that take place even revolutions occur and big upset occurs and what have you and and. One of their Perspectives which I find quite interesting is that they say one of the reasons for revolutions come about is caused a lease beginning to compete with each other and and an an I look at say trump in in America and I look at the Democrats and I I I would say Modine, India I look she in China and different groups of elites who are engaged really profound struggle for the future of their countries if you live. Out which again is leading to this kind of potential eruption of activity and a new ways of doing things. Yeah. It makes a lot of intuitive sense gone. So one way to think about this also. There are a lot of excesses. So innovating go good their excesses in the system people to believe that invincible they changed assumptions about. because they don't see any. and. Financial markets to right. So these cycles and real real mass that uniquely talking about you can see the. Happening in the financial markets more clearly. But what he's saying is that he happens mortgage and you ask in this paper in two thousand, nineteen for in many ways go. Crystallization off the settling ketone economic forces lost throat ear Kublai doomed as populous. Separates nationalism and lead clients and I think they have that we have probably the answer to that. But you see I think. One of the points I was trying to make an in in this paper walls that Global Law. If you like is is, is the a kind of synthesis off chaos? How do we bring some kind of order to chaos now once you start seeing the undermining? Of his global institutions, you see trump was withdrawn from the W. H. O.. He's he's are criticized NATO he he won't have the do with the International, Criminal Court and so we've got this kind of real life tension now between a an international legal order that's being built up since the Second World War both Ekit economic and legal order is Global And so we can't just a radical globalization I mean even even with covert, we can't eradicate mobilize ation we've got to. Handle covert the Kobe pandemic on a global basis. Otherwise, we'll. We're lost it retreats to a national. Approach is not gonNA. Work? We'll be defeated in that race is going to be global. Might. Be One of my questions in in paper was will who are the people who are going to be doing this? Kind of bringing the the order to chaos if you like and that made argument that it's got to be the global lawyer. And this is a person who not only understand their national legal system but also able to communicate with lawyers and officials. From around the world if you like. To be able to develop a kind of common. Language common discourse that enables them to stop putting these things together are, and it's not just a simple massa of saying mathematically, it works this way or not. It requires the kind of pulling together of people, but it requires that sort of common understanding which. Comes out of what I was saying about this idea of testing knowledge you know as you got this kind of professional consciousness you know how people ought to behave and how they will interact with you, and then that enables you to be out of bizarre to predict how you can do things and so on and so on. That basis I think we can operate kind of global order. It had a a below the institutional level if you're not kind of private. As opposed to the public according and that will put three. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah you know I the limit John I don't know if you think this way I limit one could as. Want to stay need for. Countries what does the need for legal system differentials? We set this up with the premise that it's easier to manage small chunks. one could also argue with Edmund Affect. -nology that you don't need to segment this debate that we have done. which might make these types of issues you know. See where you're coming from and I'm going to say yes or no? Yes, I think the home range of of questions that can be handled by the technology the ones we got pay I don't chain, etc. I don't I didn't see any issues there but there are a lot of decisions that needs to be made a book in terms of putting things together and resolve disputes that can only function at a human level because it's not. These are not decisions that are simple binary decisions. If you'd like, it's yes or no it's it's often a lot more nuance than complex about I mean, one of the resources in the World Kiva Zero System, the world amendment which is being fought over if you like is water, a water is probably one of the most valuable resources anywhere and it's you often find that rivers and things like that sort of flow between countries, they form borders. And and you are you know people if you look at the Nile, ESL start stopping in Sudan throwaway down to the Mediterranean. So he goes to countries all three countries, east European and then into Egypt's and so unwell well, who has the right to put it dime at a particular place and things like that all of that has to be cooled in act. You see a not going to be done at a human level that that's what caused the skills in negotiation judgment interpretation understanding if you like of the other people, no machine can do that I got. Yes before we conclude, I want to touch on one other thing So in the paper, you say as technology and culture intersect more and more. Ethical conundrums will intensify these raising questions about the rights and obligations of robots. And go beyond as moves. Three laws of robotics in two issues of rights of all moon. Algorithm, stem serves. So this is this is an area that be Kevin babies even even really form some notions allowed rights of all modes at rights of a are. Sai, gets more sophisticated. Yes. Yes. I do. I, mean I think this is one of the issues we already know some of the problems with algorithms and and you know can we can be are they transplanted from you see what's going on the ethical issues around the construction and implementation of algorithms and things like that. But I I I think looking into the future we all going to rely on things like robots. And various kinds of machines so much more so that if you look at a country like Japan, which is a a an aging population such that it doesn't have sufficient younger people to look after the people who need looking often. So machines, I'll be part of that, and that means people will stop forming real relationships with machines and and so that's when I would say. Okay. So let's think about how we View a potential rights of machine that we give. We give rise to humans. Yes. We know that we give rights to animals. Now we've also given rights to viz in forest in some countries as well as so machines I think our. Next logical step you know do we do we treat them with respect Let me give you one. Very classic example yet the production of. Robots for sex if you like is a major industry at the moment, some manufacturers say they want to program them say that people can act out rape fantasies will do we want that I? Mean you know should we be at first of all? You know? We should be having people behave in this particular kind of way, but even an uncertain if you do it against another human being, you'll be punished for it and you say we'll a machine is a piece of property you should be you should be doing that but I'm getting to think that maybe a machines should be treated with dignity say that we are treat ourselves with. Dixie. This a kind of reflexive situation here what we? Do to machines we do to each other, and they may again due to US depending on how they evolve and and move forward in that way is a very contentious issue. A lot of people would reject that right out of hand I agree I think we've got to stop thinking about stop dining forward because I. think we're going to at some point again. I. Don't know when. But at some point we will be having to deal with that. It's a it's a very important point. Joan. So if I understand you correctly, you know that the rights to animals the rights to inanimate. INANIMATE things like Lubers The recent those exist is because of its effects on humans and can see video a clear link in the future we would see a very clear link between a algorithms and robots ended affects on human. So this is not me You know each not fantasy in the sense that yeah, robots should have rights, but rather it's a more conceptual question. Any fraud did not have rights each going to cabin negative I I think that's absolutely true. I mean just to highlight that if you like this firm called Boston Dynamics that produces. Robots and they produced these videos of these. Now, these robots are resistant being pushed over and things like that, and it was quite interesting because a lot of people say all you can't treat them in this way. This is awful and so what I mean that that's the answer for more fighting to to the extreme extent. But it I think you know on the basis what you're saying, you know how we Oakland. Hold human beings accountable to each other in an increasingly complex world machines have become part of that. We can't just have them all sitting on the edge as though they're not part of who we are, what we are and how we do things. Right. So. Incursion Johnny fuel sort of look forward five years. At. The intersection of law and technology. But you think people see sort of the biggest. I. Think you'll see it two wins. On the you know for the individual The individual, you're going to see a lot of them just interacting. With artificial Tennessee, say lost questions about what my rights for this how do I deal with a tendency agreement? How do I complain against a producer company or something like that or that's going to be automated? is fairly straightforward to do and and it will only need A. Minimal. Amount of human inside of. An intervention if you like. At the other end at the. In I think we're GONNA see more and more technology coming in because as those basic functions that are. Being, carried out by junior people or or paralegals or things like that are the ones which are going to be increasing, automating creasing. I'm. We will replace the humans and just let machines do that because there's no point in wasting human resources on that whether that means we need fuel or more lawyers That's an open question I think it will that we need different kinds of lawyers We will need Roy Moore to logically aware much more sophisticated. They don't it's be programmers or odors or anything like that, but they need to have a quite a a a a strong understanding and gross what's going on in technology in that way if you like so. Yeah. We can definitely see an. Yeah, so I, think you mentioned the so from a structure perspective in all forum DC law firm sprucing to word. It a group of equity partners. Around it by machine so to speak well, I. Think. I was in that paper or another one I. I'm S-. Forecast. Law. Firms. Being. Distributed decentralized we'll tournaments organizations running on a blockchain with with the various people. into setting when they will no I. Think the law firm is still a very strong and powerful is Shutian, that's not gonNA disappear straight away. But certainly the numbers of partners who control things will shrink. They'll that will get smarter as proportion and yes, they will be surrounded by machines and they surrounded by people who are servicing those machines. Your excellent. Yeah. Thanks for doing this weekend. John really enjoyed the conversation. Thank you very much. It's been great fun and very
Modern and fast APIs with FastAPI
"There. Obviously, it's all about consuming API's these days API's are everywhere in a Zappia in there like we integrate with you know however many thousand different. Api In points that you might WanNa work with and IT'S It's all pretty crazy but of course, creating API's is super important. So focusing on that side, how have you seen the evolution of API frameworks come not because the early days that I spoke of it was like things were web frameworks, and then if you wanted, you could somehow manage to put a Web Api in it. Yeah. Absolutely. Excited I. think that's the key difference I think that's The difference. Yeah because yeah. So for example, this framework is basically I don't know I would think it was something like Api I mean obviously, it's in the name, but there's a bunch of them like that these days that are coming out words, the building blocks talk in terms of API's not in terms of web templates and whatnot. Yeah, exactly. So like I guess for a very long time, the more established frameworks inviting specifically have been flask and Jangle. For at the is it will be in Jangly will be JANGLED WRIST FRAMEWORK They're bunch of plug. INS that can be combined together to make something that works very well. The same with general framework visiting is, as you were saying, these frameworks were made mainly to handle templates in the back. So they accept the extra functionality was on dope around the ways that the I was able to do things. So as you were saying like the, there was this bunch of extra frameworks that came afterwards like even of the same thing sort of and they know the a sink wave game with a bunch of all their frameworks past the I, ended up later end up last wave I guess but it was mainly from the learnings of all these reviews. Frames I was using a bunch of those fingers for a long time. A bunch of floggings have combinations trying Wednesday in friend dealer. I had like something that was kind of stable, but it's very difficult to maintain quite fragile. Yeah. You said that you didn't really want to build fast. API finally decided alright. Yeah. I. Need the thing I went to exist so here we go. Yeah I, like the Nemov Hey I build another framework is heaven like every Waco's. And I was trying really hard to avoid that and I was like, no I just find the thing that I'm looking forward on finding. That will do that if we should not that I need and at some point when I was like, yeah, I'm not finding the right thing I found it and it was eight. The I star wasn't thing right atheist our framework build by dungarees. The great guy is in creator of the Framework Yeah exactly successor Django risk framework but from scratch exactly exactly and there's Aba Star Nafta Star was trying to be compatible with. An aggregate sold like the Canonical Standard Specification or interface for web frameworks, which is wealth flask untangle air based on and at the same thing with Ascii, which was the new standard that was also born at Jangle for do wet sockets these asynchronous saints right it's probably maybe we're just pointing out to people who are not deep in the web hosting side like Whiskey is this common API that all the different web frameworks, blast gender and? So, on talk to or implement, and then all the web servers like microwave Guizhou Unicorn. So on know how to talk to anything that does whiskey, and that's how you can run other frameworks on these various web servers. But none of those were capable of supporting ase, INC programming, which is super important for scale ability on the server side because the way that thing was written is incompatible with that, and so there's a new standard I think. Maybe Thomas. Even partially involved in like the finding the standard. Sure but. A SGI FOR ASE INC gateway interface and that's the GI that you're talking about right. So Api star is trying to do both of those things. Yeah. Exactly and complementing or were you were saying like these specifications of how to interact with the server on the on the framework I like totally like quite simple is mainly of one page jobs as like there has to be a function that is going to be cold with these armadillos and is basically that, but then they finding what the shape. Of that function, what are the parameters that is going to save old? That is like the main of interaction between a server like UNICORNS and a framework like flask. So these new Disney will these new standard as he is the one that support for acing weight and all these things and I was trying to have support for both things wild being an API, I framework and having like a bunch of extra features. The Dump Christie added on it was great. I was just trying to have some. Indication ideas to able to integrate them with Aba I themes, and at that point. He was also building starlet, which is the microphone more slash toolkit for building a B. is in asking these new feeling like wave applications of doing whip stuff using these new data. So he's like the bare bones thing is kind of in the middle of flask on a lower level. It will kind of the same things and because he was focusing on that, he had to deprecate most of the Aba Star components like the server components and made it just like. Ceased him on a set of tools to validate scheme us for API's right. Now that point I had found the perfect tool and it had to be deprecated. So I guess. Cute. Like okay. Let's try this. At the same you know that is
'Avatar 3' is nearly done filming
"So. You have Avatar here, and if anybody remembers because you're like Oh yeah, he's still making it. Very much. So James, Cameron. Right now he? Says that New Zealand has been able to get a handle. On Kobe nineteen so well that now he's resuming. Finishing Avatar three. Which is ninety five percent done and Avatar to is. One, hundred percent done. And you can read the headliner here from deadline. James Cameron says ever to filming is one hundred percent complete avatar three, ninety, five, percent complete praises New Zealand for Kobe response you probably saying, yeah, whatever man that's what they say. You know they always important as we see in never works out that way I don't believe him. Well, if you don't believe they headline right there maybe not only you'll feel better if you hear from the man himself James Cameron. But also. From the man who made James Cameron the man of versa. Honest wasn't Nigger Aka the terminator. They had a little discussion about this over of zoom call and. James Cameras steams he can't tell you details, but he seems a very confident that New Zealand. They know what they're doing over there, which allows him to finish his movie. Now before I go all the House, go movie question if you don't mind. Okay. All right. Mental. Kind of interview I just is anything I. Know you're in the middle of shooting Aba I know you've to get up to the individual because of the time changing into sealant the NORAD stop. Dummy sanding newsworthy at that you should know from administer movie coming out in the theaters in what's going on. I. Love Kobe, hit us like it hit everybody it is hard. We lost about four and a half months of production as a result of that we've rolled around one more full year for release in December of twenty two that's been that's been announced already. Now that doesn't mean that I have an extra year to finish the film because the day we deliver Avatar to will start working on finishing avatar three. So where we are right now down in New Zealand shooting, we're shooting the remainder of the live action. We've got about ten percent left to go where one hundred percent complete on Avatar to you know just gotTa stop here real quick and just say I'm looking at. autosport house and it looks adorable. Core I'm looking at this big as Mary here in the back. He's got these little teacups look China look you know little plates and little animals back there. He looks like the this House looks like the House of the old woman that Babysat the kids in the neighborhood. Multitudes man you think he's just a strong man he's sophisticated as hook it really see him going to like antique shows and buying China sooner having tea parties with his wife was up and. I. You know I. Mean this funny. He does this big as guy that got this sense of the Shelf Baker. I like the meanwhile we're James Cameron living. That's my question. It seems very desolate like obviously he's on. His home or whatever. But you think you would spruce that thing up. It looks like a fucking like not a motel, but there's nothing on the walls man got the. Flour barely staying alive. Looks like he's at the W.. Two is about underwater and he's not watering those goddamn plants. Not at all, but he loves blue got a big. Blue Door? A Little. That was the way I can actually know if it was at James Cameron Movie, the Terminator Robert Patrick shows up in terminator two and that Shit immediately goes blue true lies shot in that blue tent for the entire movie. He's got a distinct style say that I believe he actually had a cat spray painted blue. Around the house inspiration, it's a genius I can do this. It's inspiration. You'll get it in twelve years whatever want to give me a couple of years actually kept talking. To resume that conversation right here we're short of ninety, five percent complete on on. The painting. That's a door God damnit. We're just we're very lucky in that. We chose this as our production site years ago we made the first film here in New Zealand and it turns out to be one of the its its ranking to the first or second best country in the world for its Kobe. Response. Germany's in the number one spot sometimes New Zealand's in the number one spot. So now all I do is sit back. And wait for the rest of the world to get their shit together. So he can release the
Deep Valley Red Blend 2018
"Day. From. Sheep flying, find it Ascom again. Today we have. Five ninety nine red blend from trader Joe's The teat. Surround Low Sarah. It goes by the name of. Deep Valley Red Wine Blend Mendocino twenty eight teams. Normally Five ninety nine red wine kinda scares me a little bit because. You expect a few things out of red wine some oak aging some. Just some general aging. There is no budget applied ninety wine and a white wine. A little bit different like a Soviet block, a young savvy blockers young. They just make it. Right -Chusetts fresh. Lines good there. It doesn't that doesn't need to cost a lot of money. Learn, you need to do a little bit too and so it's always a little bit scary but I think they spied it's actually a food. Wise. I think it does better. With burgers or like a steak burrito does. On its own and I'm fine with it not the most malicious wine ever taste taste fine. But it's you know it's pretty pretty good. It's made by one of the oldest wineries in Mendocino. If you ever want to know who makes these winds for trader Joe's or any other Any other store where they don't really tell you what's what? Trademark. Registry. Website you get in there within our. Trademark lackadaisical it has come up. But. That doesn't mean that's a one that winery comes up would ever make on their own these custom crush people trader Joe's goes down and says, I want a wine like this at this price. They think, yeah. Okay. We can do that but it might not be a wine that they would ever do on their own. So don't read too much into who makes other than if they make good quality wine. They're probably not skipping on the quality that. They held back. And that's that and this is. It's a good ninety, nine Tuesday night. Pizza, burgers. Fine for them is this really well. You Know Harry. You go in and out Burger, we don't have it ended up Burger Chicago. It picked this would go great with that. There's another thing another observation about trader Joe's wines, and here's a five, ninety, nine wine from a single Aba. Under ten dollars. Californian the label which means that the grapes come from all over. It comes from the North Coast Central. Coast Central Valley. and. That's usually because to make wine cheap you gotta have. A lot of it. You gotTa make. Five hundred thousand bottles. And these big wine corporations do that they'll have holdings everywhere and you know they own vineyards contractors everywhere. So to make the most of their money and utilize scrapes pick from all over but trader, Joe's isn't like. They, go to a single ABA. And you don't know out of this is a single vineyard wine but not that, and there are a lot of vineyards in. In the Mendocino but. You know usually when these cheaper the winds are the simpler things is way to happens. You know they're not be off. You've got to bring in grapes from twenty seven different.

Japan's Prime Minister resigns for health reasons
"It is a week or so since Japan's longest-serving, Prime Minister Shinzo are announced that he would be standing down for health reasons that discreet interval having elapsed those who fancy succeeding him as leader of the Liberal Democratic Party and therefore Prime Minister of beginning to make themselves known among the first out of the traps is Yoshi suger currently chief cabinet secretary already seen as the favorite the former foreign, Minister Fumio Kishida and former. Defense. Minister Shapiro she but also like their chances, the decision is due on. September. Fourteenth joining me with more is molecules Tokyo bureau chief. Your New Wilson. Fiona is this the one horse race that some are already calling it? Yes, I'm afraid I think it is amazing. Things have happening over the last couple of days in Japan you're right there are three key people standing but really the LDP party, the party executives have swung into action and pretty much. So not the race for Soga to win it's going to be very difficult for him to lose the L. TPS. Famously, it's got these factions seven factions and it seems that saga although he only just a matter of hours go announced. His candidacy seems he's already secured. Five of the seven factions. Votes can be quite hard to beat him and yesterday that was an amazing meeting of the Executive Council of the Party and they decided not to bother with the votes from the rank and file, which really sent a clear signal because among the rank and file issue the former defense minister, he's the top choice. He's also the top choice with the public. He pulls much higher than Sukkur and clearly the party Did Not want him to win. So the in a way it's been rigged actually the vote and it's very good news for Soga and not for anyone else standing on that point though if Ishiba is the more popular candidate among the actual Japanese Public Roy is he not seen as more of a contender by the Party grandees? It's interesting. He's been relentless critic of Shinzo Bay and that's one him. No friends he he just does not have enough support within the party and it's a sort of a grudge I suppose you could say he stood against. A couple of times in two, thousand and twelve he stood against obey. He actually won the first round when it was, you know down to the rank and file he won. He lost in the second round when it came down to the the members of the politicians. So he's he's seen as trouble he's criticized throughout he you know I in a natural way he's got plenty to say about what's going on within his own party. He's he's being critical of our based diplomacy. He thinks it's to US centric he he feels that the stimulus packages that she has set the ABA. Policies that he's feels not sustainable in the long term and he's voiced very openly. So he's one no friends within the policy leaders and I think now it's unfortunately for him. It's coming home to roost. So if we are going to have to get used to the idea of your Shahida, suge as the next prime minister of Japan, do we understand yet what sort of prime minister he intends to be? Basically, who is he? Yeah, it's an interesting one I mean. People outside Japan wet name much about him although he's been obeys right hand man throughout since two thousand twelve he's he's the public face of the government. He's the top spokesperson. He's there every day at the press conferences batting off critism of Shinto. Ebbe. There are questions about unfortunate scandals, how how Abbas dealing with the pandemic. It's been super who's dealt with all that. So he is a very, very well known face here. He's. He's sometimes referred to his uncle ray were not not particularly affectionately, but he was the man who revealed the name of the new Japanese era when there's new. The new era begins and we are now in the era of war and he was the man who revealed that on television. So he's sort of got this nickname, but there's not a lot. He's revealed about himself personally in seventy one. Well, when when he came on today his press conference, he pretty much announced exactly what kind of prime minster he'll be, which is continuity Abba he said he'll be dealing with coronavirus. He'll continue with up a NOMEX and he'll continue Abbas diplomatic policy which is based on the US Japan. Alliance and I think that's where he differed from issue who was trying to do the exact opposite really saying. Issue has been saying we need more friends in south. East Asia not so US centric, he doesn't fancy what they call the golf diplomacy the great bromance between trump and pay, which is much spoken of. Not. Sure. How much trump considered it although he did he did tweets that he considered to be Japan's greatest prime minister which prompted much hilarity on twitter to see if anyone could ask trump who was his second greatest pick suspecting that he probably couldn't name and other Japanese prime minister so that that really he's continuity and for some people about important but it seems the public were they wanted a bit of change maybe not a complete revolution. They've maybe would have liked to fresh face, but it looks like it's going to be so good and it's a very short election campaign really starts in the seventh ends on the fourteenth with the Prime Minister being appointed on the sixteenth seventeenth in a special session just finally, and briefly owner is it politically viable for the Liberal Democratic Party just to install him as prime minister and let him crack on there won't be any talk of early general election or anything. There isn't at the moment, but there has to be a general election by next Autumn Anyway twenty, twenty one. This is so. It would be pretty remarkable if he were to come in and immediately call a general election. So I think not. But there are some very dissenting voices I notice the Asahi Shimbun, huge center-left newspaper second-biggest paper. In Japan, remember the circulations are enormous and described this whole process of how suit of being shoehorned into the role as bleak and pathetic. So it's not like There is across the board support for is going to have a bit of a battle with the public. He hasn't actually put a foot wrong so far he said very little. He only announced his candidacy tonight so. We'll see how it turns out but at the moment, it looks like it's going to be business as usual. If, you're on a Wilson in Tokyo Bureau. Thank you for joining

And the answer is depends on where you by. The. Angels. Petite Surat twenty seventeen, which I picked up at Costco. For Nine Ninety nine. You go elsewhere. Check the Internet out and it's selling for twenty, three, twenty, four, twenty, five. So it's like this is a ten dollar wine or is this the upscale wide? It's a petite derived from the Red Hills Aba in lake. County Lake County is due north of Napa Valley. And it's On the end of clear lake up there up about two thousand feet or more. From The Becker Mecca. Famous. Mountains I'm not quite sure where. But. It's high elevation, which is interesting. It's got You know the lakes helping things spot canucks soils. Really Cool. Groin area. It's one hundred percents. nine months in French Oh, twenty percent new. Is this deep dark rich bulbs, Bisi. Why it's kind of funny I'm drinking on a hot and sticky. August nights in the mood. A bit out of place but in about three weeks when it cools down at night. It's going to be just the wine you're looking for. And it's big bold. It's both silky smooth events ICS got tons of spies. Yeah And like I said, is this a one? There's this twenty, four dollar one. It's it's rich extracted. It's got a lot of flavors. Usually like the Tannin's and the acidity talk about that. But there's so much flavor they take back sheets everything that's going on. Off The teeth Sarah's kind of a weird grip kind of explain that a little bit. Back in the eighteen hundreds late eighteen hundreds, France at all sorts of problems with Pest and disease in vineyards, and when you're having problems with wine and France, it's a big problem. And the Sarah Grapes? Enron valley we're having some problems. So man named Europe. But Together With I think person? I'm it's a great that I think might be extinct nowadays or just almost never planet. To kind of create this hardy. Healthy. Sarai substitute. And by the time he did. The problems in the vineyard solved the no one wanted the. Ceron. Somehow showed up in Australia where it's called the roof. And California, and it wasn't a big wine from California until lately. It's everywhere. If you grab the Zinfandels, probably got some Petite Saran there and In other if you grab a red wine, it's the hidden member the. Used to. Flavor you. Come to expect. It always gives the wine a little bit of a boost unexpected boost. The teat psoriasis come into his own. This is a really, really nice petite up. that. If you feel like going upscale spend some money, well, you can go to any other store you want to. But if you want to spend ten bucks, go to COSCO and if you don't have a membership card, you talk to your neighbor does. Toss him twenty bucks or so and promise to share it with them. Drum breakdown. And you're in luck in I don't know what to say about this wine then it tastes great. Spice it's a big red wine. You like big boy red wines a big girl red I don't want to be. I don't WANNA be.

Peaks and Tides Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2018
"Stay home. Cheap wine fighter dot com summit again with another. Why Review. In kind of a companion podcast for wine picked up all. All he's been. Doing well lately and this one's called. Let me grab the bottle so I don't screw it up. Peaks in tied. Sonoma's coach Chardonnay Twenty, eight, eighteen. And peaks and tides kind of. Describes the SONOMA's coast. Ava that's. mainly. A Boutique area that specializes in Chardonnay and new are. It's up along the coast. It's In between coastal mountains it's cold. There's not a lot of huge vineyards in there. It's more boats tiki their commercial vineyards within a big. But it's. Really good growing area. And I want to a snow coast trade event a few years back. and kind of picked up gossip I. Think I would call it because it'd be wine reps and then there would be winemakers and they were kind of upset. That when the SONOMA's coast Aba was set, their boundaries are set up. Some of the bigger. Huge actually. Well established. Literally connected wineries and Wine Corpse. Kinda got the the boundaries moved to cover the Russian river eastward just to cover some of the bigger properties. And the guys kind of upset and I just noticed that Petitioned to have a western SONOMA'S COAST AV A. Now I don't know what the problem is because even the Russian river ones those are really high on liner isn't really good wines. I. Don't get what the problem is. You know maybe it's a small guy versus little guy I don't know. But, that's what they were doing and they were seemed to be all upset about it. So you know that's just gossip me sitting here with a glass by hand listening to winemaker stock. So this is a SONOMA's coast Chardonnay. If you check out your Google look. The the town in the back they said peaks and tides made it. I don't know if there is a pig's entites company, but you can figure out who the winemaker might or the liner or one of their entities might be. It's not a foolproof method of who the biggest Winery in town is, but it usually gives you a good clue. GonNa take a sip of this one. This is a really good nine, ninety, nine Chardonnay. It's got some oaken full Benatti huge amount. Let's got this kind of honey rounded thing going on it's got all sorts of flavors. I mean I got banana and pineapple. Meyer. Lemon and NAPA grapefruit and you've got on least salty thing. It's got some lemon. Vanilla cream. It tastes good. It smells great. It's got a great enrollment to I was Kinda digging that. So for ninety nine in any don't expect all these displays, these wines. So haphazardly that you you know. You don't have an expectation just by looking though this label and this line they also have a pretty good Cabernet. Sauvignon thing that I thought it's up. You know I'm not sure about that one. The packaging looks like it could be any kind of retail brand in back of genes fine. And it tastes good really good at for ten bucks and can delivers maybe over delivers. Ten Bucks will buy you a good Chardonnay out as ten twelve dollars you can you really, really good. But this is to in itself storebrand again, all these been kind of kick in some but I kind of liken it.
