"Chase cipher a little nugget that in the playoff, he was in the playoff. And cold boned his second shot on the playoff. Like, didn't hit a groove, didn't get off the ground. And then he ends up getting in the field like last man in a field somewhere with drew and he was like, in the top ten through a couple rounds, maybe even three rounds. It was pretty funny. He was like, and then he replied to the tweet. And was like, I can confirm that no grooves were harmed in the making of that golf. It's like the one. That's pretty good. The one that Ben posted on our main knowing of Instagram account of Neil. That was a toe shankar. It was a poet. Like 5 times. You don't see that often. It did not hit the heel. That was a special show. Just seeing right off face. He looks down, he looks down and he clubs worldwide. And then looks back up and I was like, wow. Oh, gosh. You guys read Katie, these article this week? He did. I did, he wrote an article about one year since Tiger's accident, which included some stuff I'd never heard about. I'd never heard the nugget of Tiger was a green light for 6 seconds before at certain point before he crashed, which speaks to him. I don't know if he's on his phone. I don't know if it fell asleep. I don't know what, but that obviously something was not right. Before that accent, which we knew, we just don't really have answers to it, even though he claims they're on them. Go ahead and read the article. I felt like the tone was fair. It struck the right notes. It wasn't preachy or know it all or condescending. I felt like it was, you know, legitimate questions still to be asked, right? But I think we can take solace in the fact that Tiger looked good. Yeah. You look great. Last week. In the eyes and everything. I made the kids pipe down and I was like, Sarah, take them. I'm watching this. That's an answer was interrogating. He kept going. I was like not gonna let up. Yeah, like maybe just let him decide? I don't know. I was a little uncomfortable. I kind of want to step in back, dude. Pump the brakes. We got soul home cup. Headed to RT J in Virginia. Which people say it's a good spot. I've never been a friend of the program Steven britton used to be one of the grounds guys there. It looks like a good piece of property, but it doesn't, it doesn't stir anything in my soul. It seems like the players are excited about it. So for that, I get a there's some good R TJ stuff. Yeah. But it's not just like careful. Big and long. Why? No. TC's gonna lay it. There's some stuff that's not just like, yeah, outrageous. The course I played Q school at this year, Magnolia, or whatever. It was a legit cool little golf course. Doglegs wasn't real big trees. It was a bunch of this stuff in Alabama. It's all like roger rule witch, which was his kind of main guy there at the end. But yeah, it just doesn't like after Inverness, I guess. I know. It's just easy to kind of be left. Yeah hanging a little bit. But at the same time, D.C. is a good golf town that's probably under underrepresented as far as far as professional golf goes. I had the Rory Instagram post on a sub tweeted the hell out of Phil out of not wanting more than blah blah blah. That was daily stoic or whatever. That was great. And then do you see what happened out in the desert this week? Oh, the Palm Springs? I've been warning people. I just saw the wind. Ludwig. Ludovico aberg. Swedish guy. Texas tech. He's like the number one amateur in the world. He is, he's coming folks. He's on his way, and he won. He was in the hard wave. I've heard good things. It was blowing like crazy. I talked to Henry ship, he was there with Stanford and was like, dude, we got the worst end of the draw. It was, you know, like, it was the starkest draw you've ever seen in like a non British open. And he said, Ludwig was in the worst of it and still won by a couple shots. It's impressive. I mean, he's a savage. F one testing. I'm way behind on that and you get caught up on that. Terry boas is not looking good in the non Mercedes. I'm shocked to hear that. I took me a minute to figure out who we were talking about. Oh, that's a Spencer hall. I love that. I'm going to refer to him. Neil texted this to us. There's some guys done in saint Clemente. It's Chad goes deep is the handle on Instagram. He's upset about the move of the blue tea boxes on the 16th hole at the saint Clement unit. I saw that clip and it was so have you seen the other one from that guy? That's not the first time that I don't think I'm wrong, but I'm fairly certain that's there's been multiple ones of these this guy goes into the city council and just like has some incredible little RICO from golf blueprint I guess went to high school with one of these guys and was like, he's been just a total character. He's like, I think his opening line in the city council thing was like council members. Normally I come to you with stoke today. I bring you beef. It's so good. And it's all about them moving the tea box on this one hole because you can't see the ocean and they want ocean view. And then I put this on there, it's unclear whether Randy suspended or not. Many people are saying. He hasn't been on the podcast in a while. Without an explanation. Phil blocked him. I can't imagine his conduct on becoming for Randall. I'd be shocked. Delta, no layup does not disclose suspensions. Delta Delta SkyTeam partner, they announced today that aero float Russian national airline that delta is spending the partnership, his guy, what's his name? Deer and fox for the kings. Got caught up. He's been some really shady NFT deal. A lot of things not going Randy's way right now. And then so I had it, are you wearing a tux this week for Neil's wedding? No, it's black tie optional. I'm not wearing a tux. I'm not running a tux. And these guys are bad, bad dudes. Randy and DJ are wearing tuxes, and they're not in the wedding, and they're going to make me be the only one not wearing a tux. How bad a dudes are they? Horrible, but I would never wear one. Exactly. The word optional. This is such a will you back me up on this? It's so icky. I'm on your side. Yeah, this is a bad thing. You don't have to exist. I'm gonna say that. Tux should not exist. Yes. Yeah, I'm wearing navy. Of course. Richie's wedding. I had to go, it was black tie optional. I'm like, oh my gosh. Not only do I not fit any of the suits I own, but I went and I bought a nice navy suit and like the thought of renting a tux and paying a 150 to $200 to rent a tux or two to whatever on a suit to own, why would you ever make anyone buy or run a tux? This is not O'Neal. To be clear, this is on Randy and DJ. Yeah. That are not in the wedding, but are wearing tuxes. They respect the game, I guess. Gonna make me look bad. You work better. We got newsletter coming out this week. Merge sort wanted to say this. Newsletter no laying up dot com slash sign up. It'll be on our Twitter feed. Okay. Yeah. I was gonna be impressed if you remember that when we were walking upstairs..

"It's the choice of the scientists which works to study and there's a bias even in that you know. An organization with funding from one institution could intentionally select works to analyze that. They're pretty sure are authentic already while selecting more dubious ones from a competitor until we get closer to the specter of the singularity algorithms are still made by and deployed by humans. And i think it's important to push back against claims of one hundred percent objectivity especially in the realm of arts glastonbury festival. A massive outdoor music festival in england sort of similar to lollapalooza in the states likes to say that it's the largest greenfield music and performing arts festival in the world but now it might have another claim to fame being the source of so much public urination. That the drugs it's festivalgoers were taking. Were present in a nearby river quoting the guardian researchers measured levels of illegal drugs in the river before during and after the last glastonbury festival in two thousand nineteen comparing levels upstream and downstream of the events after the two thousand nineteen festival drug levels in river. White lake were high enough to harm aquatic wildlife including a rare ill population. According to the report it found that the amount of md a was hundred and four times greater downstream than upstream in the weeks after the festival rising to levels that could harm the life cycle of european eels. A protected species cocaine concentration was forty times higher downstream. Although the levels of cocaine were not considered harmful to aquatic life. Previous research has shown that cocaine traces in rivers can cause eels to become hyperactive and experience muscle wastage impaired gills and hormonal changes and quotes. Study league dan aberg says this kind of drug contamination from public urination happens at every festival but glass breezes particularly concerning environmentally both due to its size and its proximity to a river glastonbury festival for their part have been doing what they can to curb public urination over the years in two thousand nineteen. They had a whole campaign with some pretty nicely designed posters. Called don't pee on the land and they say that they're willing to work with these researchers on recommendations of other tactics they can implement like perhaps the use of constructed treatment wetlands. And this whole story just reminds me. How much event organizers have to deal with like. This is a pretty funny and also damning report but the fact that the festival is just like yes. We know. we're trying. It just makes me think of everyone. I know who works in events and the absolutely wild stories. They have to tell about. Attendees and all kinds of contingency plans. They always have to have in place that like. You would never imagine if you didn't work in that field. People especially when put into groups together are just massive. Agents of chaos. Well that's it for me for today as always the show was produced by ride home media and cocky dot org. I am jackson bird. And we'll talk to you again tomorrow..

"At the mit lab created a darling and say exactly what the robots want us to think about the who is controlling. Okay darlie the other thing. I to point out. Is that kate darling. You have the perfect name for a character in a movie in which the robots become self aware and takeover. You're like you're like the expert in the background. Like i've been warning you guys all along or whatever game and let's go straight to. The question of these are all patriotic members. We change that rule now. In order to ask a question you have to be a member and that just keeps the the wheels turning of our entire operation so just wanted to publicly thank patriot members for for this. And here's your award all right again. Give it to us okay. Here we go. Our first question comes from patron shan grossman who asked could robots bill a habitat for humans on mars could robots build a telescope on the moon. What are the physical challenges of building a robot that can operate in space kind of bridges. The neal kate darling divide right there without question tag team on this one cable to begin it doesn't and what a perfect example for something that we should be using robots for right anything that's difficult for us to do Like head demars and hang out and build habitat. We absolutely machines. That can go to these places where we currently can't and do work for us. So that's a great use case of supplemental technology in line with how we used to use animals to help us do things so But in terms of the difficulty and I'm sure we'll have. Let's say about this as well. It is very very difficult to create robots straight up and then to create robots that can go to space. I am just in our every day of nasa and and you know people who have built robots that can actually not only function in space. But also i i mean they have to get everything so exact and it has to be so precise and it. Nothing can go wrong and You know even working at mit I see many many things. Go wrong all the time with technology. Chin the labs so it's very impressive. What we've been able to do and there are. There are many challenges with it. I don't i don't even know where to begin It's a very challenging job. Thought about a lot is i kept thinking when robots takeover and they will only keep two kinds of humans to stand up comedians. 'cause robots how do that. I think construction workers. Because i i i can't picture construction workers being replaced by robots. Because they're doing such different things carrying things they're they're making decisions on the spot and just curious so i would wonder how soon if ever we're going to send robots tomorrow and other robots build something. I guess that's what i'm trying to think of. Yeah i think that's right. Robots can help build something they can. They're usually good at helping people do their jobs. But they're not great at straight for placing human workers so It'll yeah it'll probably be a while before we can have robots just autonomously. Do something i mean. We don't even have automated car factories yet. Elon musk to automate. Has tesla factory and even in space where everything's very predictable and you would think we have robots just do the assembly line He ended up tweeting. That humans are under rated. Because there's always something that can go wrong. A screw can fall on the floor. Something can happen and robots don't know how to deal with that you need a human and so i think it's more than just construction workers. I think they're going to need quite a few humans around for quite a while. And i don't even think that the robots would want to get rid of us because we again have skill sets. That are so different from their's that they would probably want to keep us all around. I think they want to quickly break. I hope so but the court jester the right exactly. They need to have some form of entertainment. I have a follow up on the robots as construction workers which is that if robots did become construction workers. Would they also still can't call female. Passers-by is built into the job during the lunch break. Yeah that's that's how science fiction movies would like for example in the jetsons the made who's a robot was actually female but it's a but it's a robot that was hard to break out of these gender stereotypes that the maidenhead of any gender at all but it was a female a wheel that it was It was quite the thing so i talked about that. In the book to about how the design of these robots a lot of our own biases flew into that. So you know if if you had construction. Workers build a robot construction working robot and they like to call. They might make the robot cat call as well. I mean we do this constantly like less funny ways because it if we program it. It's got us in it whether we wanted to or not that's a rethink about even when we think doesn't it does. That's the that's the the more pernicious biases filter in to what it is we do. Let's go for another question a game. Okay kerry man aberg asks. We know how to model cognitive intelligence and probably even emotional behavior machines. How close are we to build machines that can find an appropriate and then produce offspring and then teach the offspring behaviors that are not encoded in the algorithms. I love this question. Because i also envision a world where there's like robot. Tinder is happening. let's hold onto that. Let's take a break and when we come back we'll return to.

Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Defends Technology and Free Expression
"CEO Mark Zuckerberg Maiden appearance Thursday at Georgetown University and he spoke about technology and freedom of expression some people believe that giving more people a voice is driving division rather than bringing people together Wall Street Journal Reporter Ryan Tracy attended the speech and he joins us now Ryan what were some key highlights of Zuckerberg's speech on Thursday his tone it was assertive it was a lot different than the tone that facebook has had to take over the last couple years when it's been apologizing for violating its promises to protect users privacy for allowing hate speech and other misinformation and other content to be spread across its platforms and and this was facebook saying we're trying to address your concerns your concerns are legitimate but also we stand for free expression more people across the term believed that achieving political outcomes that they think matter is more important than every person having a voice and being heard I think that that's dangerous and it was a very strong statement from Mr Zuckerberg pushing back against critics and saying hey we can take this too far and and there are places we think facebook shouldn't be going in terms of taking down content how did the Georgetown University Campus React Doug Aberg well talk to a student or two as they were filing out of the room most of them said it didn't really change their impression of him he certainly got a clause in the room room and the students that I talked to said that they would continue to use instagram and whatsapp some of these other popular APPS you know I think this was a forum that facebook sought out because allowed Zuckerberg to appear on his terms to give a speech that he wrote to to speak about the issues that he wanted to talk about and kind of set the agenda as opposed to responded to criticism and to going up on Capitol Hill L. When it's lawmakers who control the conversation and he's kind of you know sitting there being yelled at basically and there's going to be another hearing next week along those lines how does Zuckerberg see his role as it plays in both attack and politics he sees facebook as empowering people to speak and have debates he cast facebook as part of a long history of dating back to the constitution and the first amendment pulling through the civil rights movement of giving people a platform to express themselves and and he says facebook's role is to provide that platform while making sure that people aren't engaging in speech that is over the line that facebook sets for example speaks about you know that might incite violence hate speech things like that and he talked about the difficulties in drawing that line you know he's also responding to criticism awesome here from Democratic presidential candidates who think the company is not doing a good job using the massive power that it has to decide what content stays up and what doesn't and also from the right who feel that facebook has abused power by censoring conservative voices now Ryan next week a different meeting of sorts is October will meet with lawmakers to discuss facebook's efforts to launch an cryptocurrency based payments network that backers have been Georgetown he actually met with the two top lawmakers on that committee one Republican one Democrat

"And Priya Parker a group conflict resolution facilitator are trying to make your meetings less terrible okay so how should you start a meeting the first example how not to start so it starts late a person arrives ten minutes late and then the leader says okay we can start now uh-huh or worse yet it's the leader herself or himself that shows up late and then they start the meeting with a whole bunch of news and announced events things that clearly could have been communicated in other mechanisms then the leader says I have a really important issue to talk about and they start talking about that issue and they dominate the discussion and then another person in the meeting starts to dominate the discussion and next thing you know the leader looks at her or his watch is oh gosh we're out of time but you know what let's run ten minutes after the meeting time just to see if we can close the loop and says okay look I've heard from you all but in an effect they've only heard from one or two people and the other people either didn't have a chance to speak or were completely irrelevant do the discussion so the meeting ends ten minutes later than it should the leader thinks that there was a good decision made but no one else feels that way and go back to work and they go away what just happened it's called meeting Recovery Syndrome and what we find is that when people have bad meetings they don't necessarily just leave it at the door it sticks with them they ruminate they comb nate and the even reported negatively affecting their productivity after the meeting or you could start your meeting like this don't open it with logistics open it's been the first five or ten minutes connecting people in a specific way here's an idea parker got from someone who ran a weekly staff meeting she started her meetings by saying let's do a rose and thorn which is sort of this old exercise of what's the best part of your week was the worst part of your week and it just the first ten minutes the rest of the fifty minutes was used her business quote unquote and she called me up and she said my meetings have transformed and I said why and she will I our team has changed over time because the risks people take very week-to-week some people share silly soft some people shared deep stuff some people share stuff from works some people stare suffering over the weekend it's actually changed what's allowable in the conversation but the second thing that has been most interesting as I didn't realize this but people have started save more real stuff in the context of work because by starting the meeting with including a thorn as the base default I didn't realize I was playing a role as cheerleader and they didn't think that I could handle or want it to have fifty fifty thorns and so it's changed the norms of what's acceptable and what we talk about for the rest of the meeting supreme that businesses tend to quote run on occult of positivity what do you mean by that and how do you counter it whether it is panels that are asking guests to talk about all of their successes or launch a product or whether it is a meeting in which talking about how wonderful or how great things are and so part of the unwinding of the cult of positivity is to go back and ask what is the purpose of this gathering and offend positively prevents progress talk about the Difference Between Generous Society and ungenerous or as you turn imperious authority part of the role of a host is to practice generous authority and I define generous authority to do three things with your guest I is to connect them to each other into the purpose to protect them from each other and to temporarily equalize them because in any type of group people will fall all into the default patterns that they always fall into whether they know people are not and your role as a host is to temporarily allow them to behave in a way that helps you collectively go to that purpose so if I'm a meeting leader I can do different things instead of asking people to prepare in advance you like even if I have a large group of folks I want them to engage strongly on topic if I have people pair up and work in diatoms even just for a few minutes and then come back together as a group me having folks working diet changes the whole dynamic of the large group discussion the level of community Haitian and passionate will be much higher but what we know from the research is that left to just the standard protocols of people talking that a decision better than what would have just been produced by the best individual in the room only occurs twenty percent of the time so most typically meeting performance is just not optimal off the problem with meetings the proportion of good use of time and bad use of time is out of whack and so I think that's the critical issue is just figuring out how can we increase the proportion of good time over bad time good time is when the attendees of the meeting are interacting in a genuine one way such that the decisions and solutions being generated might surpass what any one individual could have done the by themselves and that time is not necessarily free of conflict in fact we want conflict meetings but we don't want as personal conflict but we the conflict around ideas so if you have a group going to battle with incredible passion around ideas that is a fantastic meeting especially if it's a safe environment and people go wow that was that was amazing that we could have this level of disagreement but in a way that does not castrate everyone in the room or as Priya Parker put it earlier you know unhealthy piece can be as threatening to human connection as unhealthy conflict and most of our gatherings suffer from unhealthy piece not unhealthy conflict so sometimes parker has to invent some healthy conflict I was brought in to a architecture firm the seventy years old architecture firm to figure out their vision for the future and they were debating whether to maintain being an architecture firm which meant in their case whether to continue to be bricks and mortar building buildings or whether to pivot and become a design firm and there was real disagreement and the firm but you wouldn't know it by being in the room and anytime I'm someone would say something even related to one of the possible visions everyone else would shrink back right they weren't willing to go there and it was very polite so during the coffee break my client said to me he literally whispered to me Preah we need more heat and so we pause and thought okay basically the norm of politeness in in this context is too strong for good controversy to happen through the way they normally meet and so we quickly in photos shop took two of the photos of the architects head and slap them on like wrestlers bodies we printed them out and put onto walls one side was the head meaning nine and the other was the body meaning the future would be architecture bricks and mortar and the architects came back and we basically said welcome back to the cage match in one corner I was kind of like the MCAS like in one corner the body and the other you have the head and fortunately for us the two architects were game and so they started like jeering and like you know raising their hands over their shoulders we assigned coaches to each of the is they threw white towels around their neck we played the rock music right we interrupted the scripts and I said each side has two minutes to say the strongest possible argument for the future of the vision the firm whether it's architecture design and then they got two minutes for rebuttal and everybody else this was the key insight everybody else has to physically choose aside no neutrality and no wallflowers and what that did was it broke the norm of implicit consensus which there wasn't and what was the of this architect cage match so at the end the group voted and the the best arguments of the body and was at choice considered binding that choice is considered recommendations but people knew that ahead of time and so the deeper outcome of that meeting that they have a shared memory that they are capable of this have too many meetings that's the nature of the troublemaker. Troublemaker is a really useful role would you think of yourself as a smoother over or a troublemaker who me you haven't figured that out by now I am plainly troublemaker so I think in healthy contexts if you share a common purpose troublemakers quote unquote can actually really helpful and one of the things IT's likely to be part of transformational conversations and that's because as a troublemaker you're willing to poke and prod and you're not afraid of little heat but as a smoother over you're also interested in repair coming to get other and going back to our earlier conversation most human connection and gathering suffer more from unhealthy piece then from unhealthy conflict and in those contexts if you're a group other overs I can diagnose immediately that this is a very unhealthy place I am happy report that our listenership includes plenty of troublemakers as well as smooth as over they've told us about some very successful meetings my name is elise is for scientists to come together and share their latest data and then brainstorm next steps for the project and occasionally we also discussed the recent sometimes controversial journal Article I often come on one of the reasons these meetings are effective in general is that people with distinct skills and perspectives are coming together with the shared goal of helping their colleague improve and we heard about some less successful meetings hey guys my name is al so one of the worst meetings I've attended was when I was working on my up we came together for our weekly team meeting and the goal is to come up with new ideas for our mobile APP and we just ran to a creative block we weren't coming up with any good ideas and I forgot whose idea was but what of my teammates suggested that we go outside and smoke some we we also heard from some listeners who've taken an entirely different path my name is John Cosgrove's I live in Minneapolis Minnesota Martin twenty years ago about seven years ago I started a company ironically in the meetings and Events Industry and the last seven years we have not had a single meeting and our company seems to be running very successfully indeed the reputation of meetings so poor that many people simply void holding them Mark Cuban and Elon Musk for instance some companies have instituted no meeting days to give employees a chance to do that work without being dragged off to the conference room but still fifty five million meetings a day in the US that's the reality.

The research shows that just asking attendees to rate the meeting raises the quality of meetings at that firm what about when people sit through who meeting's staring at their phones one of the counterproductive behaviors we focused on was this idea of multitasking and really trying to understand why people multitask ask despite the fact that clearly it tends to bother others but then the other piece of it is multitasking as a coping mechanism you know when an employee Ed walks into a meeting they were languishing control and so how can you get that control back daydream you can make less or or you can multitask and so that's how you can reclaim your power so one of the techniques is trying to build a break in the middle of a meeting so if I tell them hey I I promise you in thirty minutes. You can check your phone. That's GONNA help put their minds at ease and one final important something end a meeting.

The constitution mercy in candidate really close highway. If you see a lot of debris piling up right next to the highway, that can be blown the highway by strong that constitutes Senator, Steve Hobbs. Spins leading this ever talked to KOMO four news. What do you think's going on? Well, I think some of it is has to do with clean actual cleanup. I think some of it has to do with what is the most visual, what are the most visual encampments that voters driving past every day, and where the complaints coming from? If you drive in on I five into Seattle, this is what you see. And if you are someone who's coming here, say during summer tourism season, and say you're driving from seatac to Seattle or you're driving from. Maybe you've taken Paine field in Everett into Seattle. These are the things that you're going to see on your way in and so and, you know, this from living in DC, I never witnessed this. I never lived there, I spent a lot of time there. But the amount of cleaning, they would do on the motorcade routes was always sort of impressive, it was because they would be pristine, and then to talks off, it would be less than pristine. And so I'm not saying that I don't care, whether it's a political move or not, if they're cleaning it up cleaning it up. And I think that, that is great provided they're not just sweeping people and dumping their possessions in some other place. You said the v word bike, the voters seven hundred people running for office in King County. I think it's fifty seven in Seattle. This has got to have something to do with we can't have this going on during election season. Then we did the math and talking about this earlier, four fulltime washed up workers, a million bucks. Now, by the way, they may. Well, learn a hundred grand to go out and clean up these camps, and I'd say if you're cleaning up the camps, these dangerous places not fun. Places hundred grand that fair candy. Absolutely. I, I would expect them to be trained differently to there's a digital training that goes with cleaning up has meant and how to do it in a safe way to dispose of it and how to do that differently. That's different from their regular job description has been, and we've heard from these transportation workers, that are like y'all. I'm here to make sure the structure of the highway doesn't fall on you. I am not a social worker, not has. As mad person. You know, I cannot be doing sixteen jobs. Every police officer. That's hearing this is like, yeah. You're singing the song my people right now. But you can't expect that without paying them additional, and I hope they get additional training to do this, and hopefully to, and then there's a state patrol that's going to provide protection to go out and do this. And of course they need protection these camps. Then I don't know if you saw this late breaking news, Dan, sat Aberg, who has been in my judgment reluctant to charge people with drug crimes says he really really really wants to go after other people who were dealing drugs in this place. So Mike you'd said you hope they're just not sweeping elsewhere, and I agree sweeps failures because you sweep it it's not like these are not, not dust. They're human beings. They have to place to go. We have to have the political will to say. Yeah, you are going to go to this place, or you're gonna leave can election fever, develop a backbone and people or, or convince people to go about this in a new way. I don't know. I mean some of that's going to have to come from money and what we decide. So I guess we're probably what we're probably going to see the first blush is going to be just the visuals. Right. Yeah. We're not going to see any real policy changes right now. I don't know that anybody wants to hang their hat on this in an election year. But they certainly want to hang their hat on doing something about it in an election year. And if you remove it, as a visual thing, people feel like something's been done, even though, maybe just something's been moved. I would also say, though, that one of the other problems if you talk to the people, and you talk to state highway workers, the people are cleaning this stuff up. They said, one of the big problems here is operatives stick, people dumping stuff in homeless, homeless camps, because the and this is literally a problem even talking about this. Yeah. The folks who were saying, oh, well, we don't we won't get any blame. There's already stuff here. We're just going to dump it there. And we don't care that it ramps up pressure and blame on the homeless, folks. And that is actually happening. All of us right now, videotape of safe sat on Facebook has demonstrated catch people doing this that are. Into the homeless cans, I talked to guy in the construction business today said I would never do that. I get the temptation, because a lot of these camps, they don't get fun. So I'll have to pay this money to take it to the dump I, he would never do that. But yeah, there's a effort to catch the people who are doing this to a lot of neighborhoods to where somebody just assume. So you live in a nicer neighborhood. So I can put my dresser batter car battery. All this stuff on the corner of Bandon street somebody'll take ours. I love the theory of I don't want the cat. I don't want the couch that my cat peed on the main. My neighbors want to look at it. I'll throw that out there on you see that all over town. And then one rainstorm later giant, soaking sponge. Yes. Who's going to claim this thing. Yeah. No kidding. All right. So lection year changes and I agree with Mike, if it leads to them actually doing something. So be this.

I said something last night allow me to say it again, I've I've said this on the show. I don't have the bumper stickers made. I wanna get some made with regard to public education does say I can't get my kid out of school. I just can't I have to keep them there whatever, but what you need. Then if they're in public school is you need a bumper sticker. That says my kid is an honor student at a dumbed down government indoctrination center. Yeah. How about that? Mike is an honor student at a dumbed down government and Dr nation center because that's public school. Whether you like it or not. You know, what the sad factor that is that many teachers would agree with me, even if they weren't admit it, they know they're in the belly of the beast. They know hideous it is they know everything about it. And they know everything about it's wrong. Many are just marching toward retirement. Others are trying to do the best. They can within the system. God bless 'em. God bless them. That are trying to do the best. They can within that system. But I would argue that if you really really really wanna do something good walk away from that system. Start an alternative system. I know. The money the benefits I get I get working toward retirement. I totally understand that by the way, a lot of law enforcement, the same situation with regard to working for a gun grabber sheriff an anti-constitutional gun grabbers sheriff, but they have to go to work every day.

Whether we want to or not a report published in New York Times claims that Baltimore's war on guns almost exclusively conducted on black neighborhoods. Wow. Who would've thought who? Well, I would report written by somebody name, bannered woods and Brandon Saad Aberg says the Warren guns like the war on drugs is primarily waged on poor people by small operations units that drive around. And unmarked cars looking for trouble and poor people being targeted in. Baltimore are black people. What's inside of claim that Baltimore? Police department gun. Traced task force is doing the targeting that. They called jump out boys or knockers. Knockers up rusty warn. I think it's different and they do not respond to citizens cause rather they move undercover in night busting through doors and seizing firearms in black neighborhoods. Really? I wonder if the people that are busting in on her straight of criminals. I don't know let's go forward says right wing fears about people kicking in doors of wealthy white gun owners to take away their arms might seem laughable. But that's precisely the kind of thing task force was doing to mostly black citizens of Baltimore. And when the progressives call for gun control in a city where many of the guns are already illegal. They're calling either for tougher penalties or for squads like task force now. There is a component of truth to the fact that people in the ghetto are totally screwed over on many many fronts with the guard to law enforcement, not because law enforcement gets out of Beverly dances hill. It's going to get on harass people know that ain't happened. That's a one off. That's a one off. It's just that. There's there's just no resource there. There's no money there. There's no infrastructure. There's nothing there. And in in large part, it's very hard for them to afford things because well in many cases made very bad decisions.

"More of a forum on WTMJ. We are joined by just David route ski, and Rick Esa Berkeley -sconsin institute for law and liberty were talking. We were talking about the supreme court racing Wisconsin shifts in national politics. The Muller investigation mother scandal collusion, obstruction of Justice. I was I was talking to the break with these two gentlemen about you know, it was it was all about Muller's gonna nail it down. We'll I'll find out what the facts are. While we find out we have four page summary of that investigation. And now we're waiting for the full report at least, whatever's not redacted or removed. And now the spin is well somehow the AG is misleading America about what the mother report actually said. I don't buy it. Yeah. I don't either. I mean, as I was saying, you know, the the attorney general is almost seven years old. He's had a long career the notion that he would throw it away to protect Donald Trump is preposterous. You know, he may have reached some conclusions that people can disagree with. Although it's important to note that he made clear summary that he was not basing his judgment that. There was no crime to indict on the longstanding department of Justice practice that a sitting president cannot be indicted. So he was affirmatively saying I looked at this. And I don't think there's evidence of obstruction of Justice. He also said that most of the things that could possibly be looked at as basis for an obstruction charge are things that have already been made public and the argument about whether or not the president, you know. Can be guilty of obstruction of Justice because he's criticized Miller or he fired Komi that's an argument that we've already had. I think that if bars concluded if those are the kind of things that we're talking about I think bars. Absolutely, right. I don't think any of that monster obstruction of Justice. But you know, it's going to come out, and they'll be a battle of reductions. But you know, I mean, we're going to we're going to know more than we know today. Everything is spun, and regardless of what we see of the mother investigation this four hundred page summary with reductions or things that are removed from it. I don't know that anyone is going to be satisfied. Anyway. And I said I've been critical national media, and I'm not a media basher by any stretch of the imagination. But they've been consumed by the story to the point where they fill their nightly broadcasts with ninety percent this and ten percent everything else. And I would argue the other ten percent is probably in some ways more important judge is this going to San. Spy anybody. No. Of course, it won't. And and as part of the findings, of course, there's the issue of obstruction. But before that there was the issue of collusion. And I never believed really that there was collusion between President Trump and his campaign and the Russians from the standpoint of I don't think President Trump at the time who was running a haphazard sort of fly by the CD your pants on organized campaign. Not to mention the fact he's very erratic would be the kind of person who could collude with if you were the Russian. So I never saw that. As viable, and that's now, the conclusion the other part of it is when you see the reports, and I agree that bar would not cut a throw away his career by inaccurately summarizing, the findings for two reasons a the findings are gonna come out eventually, and you're going to see most of if not all the four hundred pages at some point whether it's tomorrow where you're from now. And so I just didn't see it as something that will satisfy anyone you're going to have an this continues. I think to get a ton of media attention, but it gets attention on really the far side. It's the people that are watching Shawn Hannity at night, and the people that are watching Rachel meadow at night, the large seventy eighty percent of the country in the middle. I think sort of had enough of this issue and are ready to move forward. You've got an election in two years and Trump stays or goes. But let's move forward. I think to that point. I think most of us out here have kind of said, we believe what we believe. I don't think the Muller investigation or a report is going to change our minds. So really at that stays what's the point of all of this? I think we're gonna make our decisions and we'll move forward and so much more of the run up to twenty twenty. We're going to get to that. After the break is what the candidates Donald Trump on one side and one of what twenty two on the other side, potentially are going to say about what rish issues really matter to American people to the American people. I don't know that the story of collusion story of obstruction Justice isn't anything more than a sexy store, you can sell an on your nightly TV cable cable news is about entertainment, and so one of the. One of the things I often do is I sit and I work, and I have cable news on in the background, and I'll switch back and forth between Fox News and MSNBC, and they can be talking about the same things. But it's it is in parallel universes. Things happen in the reason is because the the kind of folks who for the most part turn into that. They they they want to have their assumptions validated in elaborated upon. And so on Fox News. What we hear about? Now is the Russian hoax and on MSNBC. What you hear about is the Russian cover up, and I don't know that either of those views quite capture what actually has been going on. Let's take a quick break. Rick Esab Aberg judge David rescue.

"Welcome back to town hall, Ohio. I anti Higgins this week. We're showcasing a new partnership that be beneficial to farmers and consumers and all points in between recently at the two thousand nineteen mid American restaurant expo in Columbus. Specialty growers got some booth space along farmers crossing a section highlighting agriculture and building relationships between those farmers and stores, restaurants and other entities that may want to distribute their products to farms one free booth space through a contest with Ohio farm bureau. Lisa. Rowe Taylor is with Bloomfield meadows. A you pick blueberry, strawberry and raspberry farm in center Berg, that's in Morrow county. She told me what being at a trade show of this magnitude means for her farm. It means getting out to local people what we had to offer. And how we grow our berries. And how great our product is. I know you're located in Morrow county and soon Aberg tell me about the farm in. What are you grow? We grow all kinds of. Mostly blueberries in red raspberries, but we have elderberry excuse, berries, strawberries, we also have some fruit trees. I noticed dandy lion jam. I grew up on a farm. I've had a lot of my fair share of different kinds of jams never heard of that one. Well, I looked at one day and saw a lot of dandelions in five. What can I do with those? So I put them into our jam jam packed in free. So a lot of people like that, especially some people that are glucose intolerant have found that they could eat it is an all-natural concept. Yes. It's all natural. We grow some herbs that we put in and but yes, all natural. So when you have people at the trade show her you look into connect with what kind of relationships are you looking to start here today. Well, I'd like to get our products out into the restaurants. If they're looking for fresh, berries, we have those to offer if they wanna use our jams into we put them on meats, and pastries, we don't use them on toast, usually. So there's lots of other things you can do with your jams. So I'm hoping to get to restaurants, and then small stores, I would love to be in some small. OT's you're a farm.
Facebook Users Value the Service More Than Investors Do
"This is science Americans. Sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd Yata. Facebook is currently worth some four hundred billion dollars to its shareholders, which might seem like a lot. But a recent study suggests the company's worth many times more than that to its users. Basically are punchline is that Facebook does seem to bring value with users, and maybe the nicest thing anybody said about Mark Zuckerberg all year, you know, but it does seem to bring joy or utility the people shown be caches economist at Tufts University in Boston he and his team asked some thirteen hundred Facebook users from colleges community online samples to put a dollar figure on the value. The social network brings to their lives specifically, they asked users how much they need to be paid to deactivate their accounts in the stakes were real if a user's offer was accepted she'd have to deactivate or account for up to a year and cash remember that's the actual name of the economist cash would have to pony up the money. We did have some budget breaking surprises. But just how big of. A surprise cash and his team found that on average users ask for more than a thousand dollars in exchange for shutting down their accounts for a year. They reported the results in the journal plus one if you divide Facebook's market capitalization by its number of users more than two point two billion, you'd find that each user is worth about one hundred seventy five bucks to investors. But actual users seem to prize access to the platform more than five times that not the cash and his team are suggesting CEO, Mark Zuckerberg should actually charge that much for access. But what they're measuring. Instead is what's called consumer surplus or more simply put the additional perceived value that users get from using the service, if you think about the history of innovation in general, it's often the case, even when we see somebody like at us and making a lot of money off of the light bulb. The value toll the users of the light bulb since then has been much higher than whatever fortunate. He made Facebook's never ending string of privacy. Missteps though might affect whether we'll say the same. The social network in the future whether Aberg likes it or not. Thanks for listening for scientific American sixty seconds science.

When it comes to fixing Facebook, were on Mark Zuckerbergs timetable
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. When it comes to fixing Facebook. We are on Mark zuckerberg's timetable by Owen Thomas from business. Welcome back to tech chronicle. If you don't really subscribe to the newsletter move fast and sign up move, slowly and fix things. Whatever happened to move fast and break things in Facebook's third quarter earnings call with analysts, Tuesday, Mark Zuckerberg made one thing. Clear fixing Facebook is going to take time q. George Harrison singing, I've got my mind set on you and the chorus it's gonna take time to do it. Right. As the earnings revealed suckered has money a whole lot of spending money to fight fake news, spam and election interference. He has said Facebook will hire twenty thousand workers to review posts the goal though. He told analysts is to have Facebook artificial intelligence spot. Pablo medic posts before anyone has to flag or review them. He indicated that it. Might have this figured out by the end of next year for the citizens of Brazil that's a bit late vaunted war room set up to monitor elections. With a Brazilian flag posted on the wall, signaling the country's importance shutdown some fake accounts used to send spam. But the end result the election of far-right candidate jar Bolsonaro in campaign fueled by conspiracy theories sent on the Facebook owned what's app messaging service suggests that it has made less progress than it claims sucker. Berg has a polished talking point for this. It's an arms race and the company has to keep up with evolving behavior, if it's an arms race, what about this idea, why doesn't Facebook unilaterally disarm Facebook could shut down at service outside the US, Canada and Europe and save it self a lot of headaches. The worst social media fueled disaster seemed to happen in places like man, mar Sri Lanka, India, and Brazil that would slash base books. Vaunted user numbers. From two point two seven billion to six hundred seventeen million, but it would cost only twenty seven percent of its revenue if anything Facebook's profit margins who would probably increase contending with lies deception and state-sponsored manipulation and a smaller part of the globe. But presumably cost less and work better than trying to do it for the entire world sucker. Berg has suggested that if western governments were to reign in Facebook Chinese social media giants would move in to fill the void. And so what Facebook may twenty seven dollars sixty one cents per user in the US and Canada in the third quarter in its emerging markets, where advertisers are far scarcer it only made a dollar eighty two per user or about sixty cents a month as a business. Facebook would be better off figuring out how to squeeze more dollars out of the data. It's American users surrender with shrug it with baseless flack too, but suck Aberg has his mind set on connecting the world, even if that means leaking up all of its unruly. Contentious bad actors, good luck with that quote of the week. We have willingly now for more than a decade given up our most personal data that is the real guts the bloodstream for AI. You know, our personal data is the most valuable commodity in the world right now. I mean, it's far more valuable than any energy source or any other commodity, you can think about and we have given it over we've given it over to companies by and large.

Silicon Valley to Washington: Why Don't You Get Us?
"What's news from the Wall Street Journal, top stories and timely insights. I'm Charlie Turner in New York. Congressional lawmakers have grilled Facebook CEO. Mark Zuckerberg over the past two days about the company's management of its users data. But the questions revealed that many of the lawmakers have little understanding about how internet based products work. We'll talk with Doug McMillan of the Wall Street Journal in a moment. I hear some top stories, the fed released minutes from last month's policy meeting Wednesday, all of the Federal Reserve policymakers felt that the US economy would firm further and that inflation would rise in coming months according to the minutes, policymakers signalled greater confidence in reaching their two percent inflation target over the coming year and affirmed plans to continue raising short-term interest rates. Gradually, inflation is continuing to creep higher. The Labor Department's March consumer price index fell point, one percent, but that was only because the cost of gasoline fell. Americans paid more for almost everything else. The core CPI. Leaving food and energy rose point, two percent house speaker. Paul Ryan announced that he will retire when his term ends in January. The timing of the announcement was a surprise to lawmakers who had expected. Mr Ryan might leave congress. If Republicans were to lose control of the house in November, at a press conference with camera shutters clicking Ryan reflected on some of the houses accomplishments during his time speaker. For me or I the major form of our tax code for the first time in thirty six years, which is already do successful this country. That's something I've been working on my entire adult life. Second, something I got much much more invested on since becoming speaker is to rebuild our nation's military. Ryan Republican from Wisconsin has served in the house of representatives since nineteen ninety eight. He became speaker in two thousand fifteen. He said he's retiring to spend more time with his family President. Donald Trump on Wednesday said that US missiles will be coming to Syria and warned. He was willing to challenge Russia directly and launching a military strike against Syrian President, Bashar al-assad over an alleged chemical weapons attack on Twitter, Wednesday morning, Mr. Trump wrote, quote, Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria, get ready Russia because they will becoming nice new and smart Trump warned Russia. It shouldn't be partners with Mr. Assad whom he termed a gas, killing animal who kills his. People and enjoys it coming up the Washington Silicon Valley divide. This is what's news from the Wall Street Journal. Welcome back everyone. Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg testified for two days in front of the Senate and house committees about how the company managed its users data. It followed the revelation that Cambridge Analytica used the data of eighty seven million Facebook members for political purposes without user's knowledge or consent. Zuckerberg's testimony was generally received positively Facebook stock rally, Tuesday while he was speaking. But the hearing, if nothing else revealed a rather big divide between Washington lawmakers who are questioning Zuckerberg and the tech culture of Silicon Valley. Let's explore this with Wall Street Journal, San Francisco based reporter, Doug MacMillan Doug. The title of your article. A wsj.com is Silicon Valley to Washington. Why don't you get us? Have the questions delivered by lawmakers at the hearings revealed a general ignorance of tech firms and their products? Yeah. As you mentioned, they were generally positive reviews for sucker bergh's responses to questions in. Testimony yesterday, but the people I've been talking to in Silicon Valley offices and and Twitter and across kind of the tech world, those people focus more on kind of what senators were asking. And you know, specifically, were cringing at a lot of the ignorance or lack of, you know, deep understanding about how some of this works. Now, you know, I think that this is not easy stuff to know. And I think probably generally, most Americans have a hard time wrapping their head around some of these issues. These are complicated issues. We're talking about with regards to data sharing and scraping information at targeting ads to users. These these are not simple concepts, but the way in which you know senators are kinda stumbling over some basic concepts is giving some people in Silicon Valley, some some cause for concern and some reason to say, hey, wait a second. If these people are going to regulate us, we better make sure that they are a little bit smarter about. Jack. I mean, for instance, you write that Brian Schatz senator from Hawaii. He missed took what's app. Facebook's popular text messaging tool for an email service. Texting is not the same as email, but I think there was a general misunderstanding about whether or not Facebook sells its users data and a dozen. Yeah. An interesting kind of point to make it I think is what is the definition of data? It sounds like in some ways, Facebook is using it sort of narrow definition of data in at least for the purposes of this hearing, whereas many of the senators. And I think most users in Americans would take kind of a broader view of what is the word data. I mean for Facebook in for Mark Zuckerberg, he's stressing that data is the information that Facebook has about users, including their likes, their interests, their their their by graphical information that they have within Facebook, that that it helps advertisers match to those kinds of pieces information rather than giving them the. Actual pieces of information. However, I think that's a very narrow definition of the word data. And I think many senators are stumbling in their talks with Zuckerberg because they are taking a broader view of the data is any any piece of information that advertisers are collecting and using and gain from Facebook? Well, I gather that a big problem here is at Washington might decide to regulate high tech companies in their products without much understanding of or any understanding really of how the products work. So is it up to Silicon Valley to do a better job in educating Washington about the tech industry? I think it's probably up to both. This is not a new concept that Silicon Valley in Washington don't speak the same language. There has been a long lack of understanding and failure to come together and have a discussion. But I think what we've seen over the past couple of years is at least a an awakening to this problem and an internist. Interest in trying to come up with a common language. You're seeing things like more senators. Congressmen politicians come out to Silicon Valley and make a pilgrimage to meet with people in tech to kind of gain some more understanding of how this works. And I think what we will be seen as more people in technology go to Washington or go to lawmakers throughout the country and try to understand you know how the world works because it's important that I think both sides come together and and learn more about each other. You know before some kind of heavy handed regulation comes down that seeks to rein in technology in a way that maybe fundamentally misses how that technology is developing and growing and perhaps could curtail innovation down the road. You talk to some techies out in Silicon Valley. Do they think Doug Aberg generally did a good job? Yeah. A lot of people I talked to were excited about zuckerberg's. Performance because a lot of them own Facebook stock in Boston. Yeah, bought Facebook's stock last couple of weeks when they when they saw there's a downturn in the stock, but but I think generally, you know, he has. He has developed a very strong reputation until it can validly perhaps that is out of alignment with the way that the rest of the country. You know, starting to view him more as someone who runs a large kind of advertising data collection company, Facebook and Zuckerberg here in Silicon Valley still very much regarded as a hero, and it's kind of a role model for an engineer and founder driven company that can really revolutionize an entire world and really up in the industry. He's still somebody that you know, young founders engineers and entrepreneurs out here look up to. And I, I don't think that anything, you know any appearance in Capitol Hill is going to change that. Well, he seemed to be rather shrewd as regard to, you know how he dealt with. Lawmakers, you know, he didn't promise any basic changes to the design of Facebook's platform or advertising business. I guess though at the same time he did acknowledge that some regulation would be in the offing somewhere down the line yet it's kind of a delicate balance because you don't want to sound too defensive and you at this point, there's so much momentum behind the idea that there's going to be regulation that it would probably be counterproductive and to kind of antagonistic to try to stop that momentum. So I think it's, it probably isn't as interest to say, you know, I think he said today, regulation is inevitable, but the devil's in the details. And we've heard a lot of congress people in congress, proposing specific bills and measures, and trying to get him to support and endorse those measures. And for the most part, he is backing away from committing to anyone measure. So wash, Lee see over the neck. A few months. If Facebook will be willing to come to the table and support specific regulation legislation versus, you know, have this kind of broad public relations statement. That sounds nice that you know. Okay. Yeah, re regulations inevitable, and we're going to help you work towards that Wall Street Journal reporter, Doug MacMillan joining us from San Francisco. Thanks, Doug.
