NRA Issues F Rating To Bugs Bunny For Tying Up Guns Into Pretzel Shape
"In the wake of new. York. Attorney, General, Latisha James's lawsuit against their organization. The powerful National Rifle Association is clapping back. I. Think I'm using that right? Anyway. The Guns Rights Organization today issued an F rating to bugs bunny for tying up guns into Pretzel Shapes. For more I'm joined by OPR senior alcohol tobacco firearms and explosive correspondent Marcy Hammond mercy. What was the NRA's thinking here while the NRA reserved. The F. rating figures at deems is particularly harmful to the rights of gun owners and leadership believes that bugs his long history of firearm destruction qualifies him. Here's how NRA deputy spokesperson Rhonda mcdaniel. Explain their decision time and time. Again, we have seen this radical agitators seeking to curtail the Second Amendment Rights of Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam by twisting their lawfully purchased firearms into a big bowl and the NRA has had enough. Now let's be clear. Bugs is a beloved cultural figure with relatively little political sway is it really in line with Americans interest for a gun lobby to be targeting him round the NRA certainly thinks. So while the organization has been weakened over the years due to lawsuits and falling public opinion they signal, they'll be devoting considerable resources to getting what they call a no. Good Rascal Rabbit here's mcdaniel. Again, if these sort of left distant imitation tactics prevail, we're looking at a future where government agents can just come to your home while you're sleeping and bend your gun into a youth shape or jammed the barrels with carrots coastal elites like bugs bunny may be okay with that outcome, but real Americans will never stand for it mercy. Some have accused the gun right's organization of not caring about tune rights they pushed for decades to deregulate bazookas. Dynamite sticks coming from the ACME company. That's true. But the NRA would point you to their a rating for Marvin, the Martian. For providing what they call a sterling example of responsible gun ownership. Sure. But do they have any other tactics to push back against what they see boxes anti-gun stance while the F. reading a tactic in and of itself of course. But beyond that NRA leadership announced, they'll be launching a public pressure campaign encouraging members to email and tweet bugs bunny to tell him actions are harming the American way of life. They're also lobbying Congress to remove him from television claiming that he's been brainwashing our nation's children with anti-gun propaganda, and if those tactics are unsuccessful, they have plans to draw big angle on his head. To, imagine that this separating didn't sit very well with everyone. That's certainly true. Leslie several gun control groups have spoken out against the move with MOMS demand action launching a new ancient stinker ad campaign targeting the NRA. Responded not personally, but a spokesperson reached out to tell reporters quote meet me. Okay. Then Marcie please keep us updated. That's OPR's Marcy
Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam no longer have guns in new 'Looney Tunes Cartoons'
"Fudd okay this is Donna loves Looney Tunes ideal throwback just thinks it's great well Elmer Fudd would routinely chase around bugs bunny with a shot gun **** yeah well you know hunting for weapons hunting through Abbas will now there are new Looney Tunes cartoons on HBO Max in on HBO Max's cartoons no guns are allowed yeah an Elmer Fudd means he has to put down his gun when he shot and Bugs Bunny a producer does though sure everybody there will still be old school cartoony violence kill the rabbit killed away abit now obviously the change was made as a response to gun violence in the U. S. but one of the producers is saying that the also have like T. and T. yes this is still explosives an acme stuff so essentially still pipe bombs but no guns anymore Elmer actually got his gun take away a little while back but no one really noticed there was a loony tune short called dynamite dance that hit you to last year and in its Elmer Fudd goes after Bugs Bunny with and how do we pronounce this word S. C. Y. T. H. E. S. C. life size which I believe that's like a grim reaper kind of it yeah so no gun but but the grim reaper thing is
Live From The HIBT Summit: Stewart Butterfield
"Hey everyone so today. We've got another one of my conversations from the how I built this summit. That happened in San Francisco last October. And you don't in the world of startups. Most difficult moves to pull off is a pivot to maneuver out of your first idea into something that might have more potential and Stewart Butterfield. He pulled this off not once but twice about seventy years ago. Out of the ashes of failed video game. Stewart launched slack an office collaboration tool that now has twelve million daily users but before slack back in two thousand four Stewart was struggling to get traction Shen with another video game called game never ending. He wound up shedding that one down too but out of that failure he was able to launch a photo sharing site called liquor which he sold just a year later for around twenty million dollars so when I sat down with Stewart onstage. I asked him about both of those pivots. Starting starting with the first one from game. Never ending to flicker there was a point and you talked about this in the podcast where you had to decide whether to drop all this work on this computer game like more than a year. I think two years of work on this game and pivot to the photo sharing site and there was a debate in internal debate. I wonder how did you know that that was the right thing to do. Because our instinct would tell us to push forward Gordon to keep going right like. That's what we think we're supposed to do to just carry on and March forward. Yeah there's a lot of advice that's just persevere grit grit resilience gotta keep going in the face of adversity over and over but there is definitely a point where you either you know. It can't work or kind of like the reverse verse manifesting of I don't believe anymore this could work. which makes it very unlikely? If if the person leading the project doesn't believe it can work. It's it will be a weird fluke for it actually to work out but we were just out of money and it would have been much more difficult complex project. Complete Games would have taken us a minimum of another year but probably realistic closer to two more years. And we didn't have that kind of time. Whereas flicker we figured we can get version of this out in A couple of months and it actually was. I don't remember the exact dates anymore but some time in December two thousand and two that we decided to do it and early February two thousand three launched. So you guys ended up selling flicker to Yahoo and you described yourself as briefly Internet famous. You you actually were on the cover of Newsweek magazine with with some of the people at one point which. I'm assuming Gotcha some attention to allow you to kind of think about the next project kicked you decide to go back and start another company. That was going to be a computer game called glitch. What was driving you then I I mean did you think okay? Now I've failed failed the first time now. I know how to do it right. We can talk about the reasons that we used to convince ourselves that it would work this time. There was actually a lot of realistic realistic stuff. There the cost of hardware so servers in the background had fallen by at least ninety percent and bunch of things change by a factor of ten the number of people online line change by a factor of ten the availability of great open source software tools but stepping back when I got in line in Nineteen Ninety two and I grew up in Victoria British Columbia. which is a pretty small town actually provincial? It's on the edge of the continent and then it's on an island so it feels very remote and cut off from the rest of the world world to kind of an an observer and when I got to college I got an account on the school's unique machine and that meant I had access to the Internet and this is maybe six or nine months before the web really started to take off so the Internet at that time was a thing called newsgroup which is hierarchical directory of kind. Hi discussion boards for more or less everything in the world's hugely popular in the scientific community and academic communities but also recreational in fact kind of mind blowing looming but wreck dot music dot g dead. The grateful dead Newsgroup was the most popular thing on the entire Internet is like in terms of traffic it was the net flicks of its day. Just like the text postings going back and forth and I just really remember that as being one of the most revelatory mind-blowing experiences in my life that even though we were on the edge of the world at felt like and kind of really outside of everything that was really happening. I can connect anyone and that kind of the possibilities for computer technology to facilitate human interaction to me are endlessly fascinating and I think when we you look back. Tens of thousands of years to this time it will seem as significant as the development of written language because it just allows this accretive knowledge allows allows the accessibility allows US instant communication coordination between people. And we're still like one percent of the way into exploring the possibilities. So I mean with with glitch right. This is a beautiful game. Raise money around it. You had great developers. You convince people to move across the country work on this what happened. It just didn't so in this case we had the money in fact acme of money leftover when we decided to shut it down but it was apparent that it wouldn't work and I think this is a if there's one thing that's an actual like practical lesson for entrepreneurs in in all of this history besides the sometimes pivots work it's It's hard if it's really really hard to explain your at an enormous disadvantage wjr. And so what does the way games are marketed. Generally as there's kind of two by two Matrix and in one access it's the kind of veneer. Looks like the World War. Two or post apocalyptic sci fi or it looks like Bennigan's and dragons or it looks like Pika chew or something like that like cutesy cartoon. There's that the flavor of it and then there's the the the mechanics of the game first person shooter real time strategy and puzzle games and stuff like that and games are marketed is. It's like their position on this grid so it's a World War Two first person shooter. Game an instantly people can see like at least I understand what that is and maybe I'm interested in. Maybe I'm not. We tried to sell the world a massively multiplayer game with no combat cooperative. It was kind of Monty Python meets Dr Dr seuss surreal absurd literally. This is the game with you. Would milk butterflies collect milk. You would squeeze eggs. Squeezed chickens to get eggs anyway was very How did you raise? Money are around that I think the fact that we had been successful before but is also right at this interesting juncture where it was around round the year that android came out around the year that iphones actually started to take off and suddenly. There's this massive shift in people's discretionary Internet time from desktop and laptop stopping heaters to mobile's we had made a bat on Flash AS TECHNOLOGY FOR DELIVERING The game which wasn't going to work on mobile's and in the end that that really was the nail in the coffin. If it hadn't been for that I think it would have been worth trying a little bit more but I was committed in everyday came in with optimism and that was sure that this next thing that we were going to try it was going to work and then we did it and it didn't work but by the end I think the kind of technological dead end we had find or sounds going down the fact that it was desktop only a world that was going increasingly mobile the fact that it was already so hard to explain made it really tough. Despite the fact that there it was a super committed very enthusiastic audience I just lost faith and I realized then like once I had done that it was now.

So I'm getting the impression from all these stories from Europe flying career and the RIF are W. F.. That there was a little bit of drinking going on well. Yeah Yeah of course. The adult the adult beverage. Well the odd. Yes yes exactly Cyprus. We had An interesting interesting rule because It was renowned for being a place where one might occasionally overindulge We used to be given a joker this. This was a sort of imaginary COBB you could play. And if you're down to fly and you Got Work and realize as you really weren't fit you could play your joker and you would be quietly removed from the flying shedule but you ain't got one joke. A Apollo detachments use it wisely news. It wisely exactly right. Did you use yours. Sorry did you use yours. Of of course I mean it. You didn't hang on 'til next year so yeah exactly right while those store so just a question for you do you have all. This is from your log book Do actually have all this detail written down or is it mostly from from your memory. But I'm using the book as accused of trying to open up those closed doors. Were trying things. Tails may have taken my. My logbook doesn't have any detail on that I am I using the low book I can remember what we did and then of course everything comes flooding back s while good stuff thanks. Thank you very much. Captain Nick for that. And let's four John and try to knock out some more feedback. What do you think? Yeah all right Let's see Oh Christian not too far from where we are right now in Richmond Hill Ontario the Jaramillo it wasn't it was model now He sent in some feedback regarding Airbus demonstrating the first fully automatic vision based takeoff off so he writes so Airbus's really do fly themselves. Here's a link.

"Me. You'll be glad you did incoming message all right. Let's Hit the feedback folder. The mail bag and will start with item. One Texas endless shock greetings capped Jeff the navy crew. Well if you're a fan of the seven forty seven it's a sad day as KLM has scheduled their last flights without equipment. So if you WANNA catch a ride on one we're running out of options and once they're gone we probably won't see anything like it again for a good long while if ever since the eighty three eighty is apparently also now on his way out jumping tracks I just heard a PG four zero seven with plain tales about drag. Actually I'd actually heard about the convair nine ninety previously on a youtube video about how the plane came to be and why it didn't succeed. The thing did present an interesting profile. Not only from those does speed blisters but also that long pointed nose. This comes from channel called mustard which seems to be more of an engineering channel that Than strictly aviation aviation the first video it did was about why there are sometimes bathroom cabinet sealed inside your walls why do you get to them. but over half the videos on there are I think my personal favorite is the one about the t a u one fourteen. The Soviet airliner developed from the bear bomber. He overall it's very well done has a slick professional look and interesting topics very much Different than our show. Glad Captain Jeff like the new airport. Here I did discover one drawback coming back from California after for Christmas and that is that there is little to no seating in the claims area which was a drag since the baggage from our flight took forty five minutes to get out it to us. No check luggage if you can help. It wasn't acne flight. Guarantee it because we really get those they get there do a really good job getting getting their bags out like within twenty minutes or so. I think Mr Goal Anyway keep up the good work looking forward to the next show this is the Texas endless shock signing signing off random aviation quote. I thought Captain Nick and other Airbus folks would appreciate this quote. Yeah this is my job. I watched buttons Flash Rush every now and then I push one flight lieutenant. Geoffrey Joker Moreau on piloting the star. Forget Normandy mass effect two. Oh so that wasn't really an Airbus No it's a great game. Played mass effect and Mass Spec to and thoroughly enjoyed them. Oh I thought it was yeah. It's a really really good sci-fi came cool cool all right. You knew that. Didn't you steph. No Clue Oh you you dine associated associated Hey to Tom says he wanted to say he really enjoyed. Captain Knicks recent technical goal plane tail and particularly the lesson on area rule. It's been said before but you have a real talent for bringing a subject to life and I'm sure sure you could supplement that retirement income by doing an ATP L. Theory podcast just remember. It was my idea. What a great idea? Wouldn't that be fun. I'd rather slip by making it that much more interesting. I prefer folks very casual. I think if I put every ounce of my mega talented that I can drag it up from the most boring subjects in the world. I will say this. This is completely unrelated but there is a guy out there who did a bunch of lectures for Basically weekly for folks looking into In Med school passer board examinations. Lectures were so good like they were kind of pirated and audio recorded and disseminated seminated to the masses but option. You could rival his genius for making a dry subject very interesting While I do my best to cause but I need to find I don't think that's right kind of suggestive Nikon of any money. Captain Nick if you were to do an ATP L. Theory podcast. I definitely wouldn't listen to me. Good Tom continues. News really appreciate what you do. I was sad not to be able to make the P. T. UK three hundred meet up but hoped to be able to meet up with at least some of you in the near future cheers. Here's Tom he must be over that way. I would have been kissed on. Thanks very much feel nice comments. All right Three Ramiro grow another Feedback about area rule While listening to the old pilots plain tales and episode four seven captain. Nick answered a question. I had about the convair nineties. Unusual wing bumps besides being a great storyteller. You can actually learn something from the old curmudgeon once in a while if you're paying attention. Wow that's a kind of a backhanded. I don't even know if you can pick the chaff from the weight. Recently I had to relocate from southern to northern Northern California for work I was driving up and decided to go through the Mojave desert to see if I could get a peek at some of the park. Airliners I know our story out there. I made a small detour onto highway. Fifty eight towards them Hobby Airport while you can't get anywhere near the parked airliners did find the nine ninety on display at the entrance at the airport. It's parked next to one of Nick's favorites. The four Phantom and small.

"Only twenty seconds later the captain issued an expletive and demanded reversers. There are eight thousand eight hundred twenty feet down on the runway. When the reversers were selected the engines had already schooled down to ground idle? The engines began to accelerate but reached maximum reverse thrust only after the aircraft had already already overrun the end of the runway So anyway but it was not a good situation. They Damage to the airplane. I'm not sure if there Ariza any passenger injuries here Had to look at a different point here but the one of the interesting things about the report and I highlighted here and I'm scratching my head about. I'm not sure I understand this one of the well they talk about. You know use of the automatic flight mode autopilot auto throttle in the flight under the winter conditions resulted in the aircraft being unstable And I think that was against their their operator. Her manual requirements Lack of prevention measures taken by the operator. When previous cases poor crew response to winter morning were found and But this one is one that gets me. The crew members high psycho emotional state caused by inconsistency between the actual landing conditions and the received training as well as the psychological limit which was determined by the individual psychological constitution of of each member plans. That mean almost sounds like any being immense mental institution. What I don't get the so because they didn't ever see this exact situation training that it was upsetting to them and they visist frozen? Didn't know what I mean. Almost looks like to me that they just disregarded all the warnings of. What's Kim possibly have be happening? So let's just keep on going. Maybe it's GonNa work out clear and sunny cal. Yeah not not good not good. What do you think nick? How did they get through the simulator training? How did they get through the annual simulated checks if they're behaving like this in the regular airplane? I don't understand. I don't know what they were doing in the real airplane. If they come handle something as black and white as this kind of a situation I I mean you hear winter ahead go around and our go around wins your head before you get to the reactive winter. You're already initiating go around absolutely rights. Nice not knowing what they were thinking and why the hell lay ignored to a full wind. Chill warnings without I mean eventually they initiated around the first one ignored it on the second one they feel state so low. They couldn't go around on the second one. Well you might vaguely understand that but even so When you know you go that huge amount of ground speed and you touchdown reverses in as soon as possible That just sounds like Taos. Captain still added with his Alma. Mater said on standard precious settings hadn't even changes to setting up the previous guy. Really Rayleigh that were they carrying any checkless. Well I have to tell you that I think the psycho emotional state the US. By the inconsistency I dunno psychological limit drunk out there. That's a Volka. That's what the Canadians think anyway. Just a thought there would be No I'm not GonNa say it just not going there. I love the way. The data doesn't just about seven. I know everybody can figure out what he's GonNa say but he doesn't science over just going to say. I plead the fifth. But you know the bottom line is. Is this poor decision. Making poor. For every ship yeah poor Jamaican just go. Leadership toll threaten analysis poll everything. It's just so much you could take so many Fox's the now if this person. These pilots have a psychological issue making a decision like this may not not be fine airplanes that that is true. Maybe they're not maybe okay. Let's move onto item. Jay and I do have to make one comment on the list before I move on down the list of of You know the causes that Kinda identifying here yeah notably league. None of them mentioned the fact of low fuel. Now they don't so that's all we just have to assume from the lack of the mention of it that it it wasn't a factor and if the investigate investigation board didn't find then it must be it must be true true true. AH MIGHT BE I next Jay. Unless you're going to get one the I'm sorry I had already advanced and then I.

"I'm GonNa tell you what the story is about The person writing the article was selling an engine and Gentleman came by to pick it up. He and his wife Put it in the back of the mini van and they started a conversation and then it turns out that This man was about to celebrate. I believe his seventy fifth anniversary bursary of his solo flight and I believe he was seventeen when he's so loud and so you can do the math. The the gentleman is ninety two years old still flying and man really good article the the number airplanes. He's flown are just amazing great airplanes to it's just A. It's a wonderful story photos. Great photos. Yes it's just one of those heart warming things This this guy has amassed about two thousand five hundred hours if I remember correctly over time and these are in general aviation airplanes. He said I remember one of the things thinks he was talking about. He was flying somewhere in the trucks on the on the interstate highway were actually passing moving faster than he was. He was flying a lot lot of the things like the Eric hoops and J three cubs and that kind of thing things that don't really fly that last but anyway great art you want to get somewhere in a hurry unite do that anyway. You get on a he he helps. You just liked being in the. Am I one of these airplanes. That he had God was a it. Looks like I don't know if it's the j three cub or not but It had yeah. It's a cub. has this landing gear on. It called Whitaker. Whitaker tandem gear elected this photo and thinking something doesn't look right about this is cooked. Any wheels was like crazy easy and then he says that I guess the point of it was a you could like go over taxi over any kind of obstacles like a logger Iraq But he didn't WanNa do it because he was pretty pretty. Sure that that wasn't gonNA work out very well but Anyway great great article and should definitely check it out in the the show notes and read it. Thank you Liz. And thank you Mike for Sending that in all right. Gee so hey. If you're running late for a flight seems pretty reasonable to me. Just get on the phone call the airline and say and call in a bomb threat. It's not one not that. Will that will certainly delay the flight right. Well they probably will but it might get you into a little bit of trouble. An airline passenger has has been jailed for causing a bomb scare on his own flight because he was running late and he feared he would miss the flight Russia Dul Islam. Thirty ready to call. Police forty five minutes before easyjet flight to Marrakesh from Gatwick was due to take off. After his train was cancelled in his taxi became stuck in traffic on May fourth breath of last year his hoax call caused the flight to be evacuated and all one hundred forty seven passengers had to be re checked by security The cost the airline estimated thirty thousand pounds and resulted in a three hour delay. The good news is he made the flight. He made the flight unfortunately for him. They figured out that he was the guy that called in the bomb threat the hoax and they arrested him and he was sentenced to sixteen months in jail at Lewes Crown Court after pleading guilty to communicating false information. Aw He has also banned from Gatwick. was that necessarily a bad thing. I don't know mm-hmm anyway didn't we have a story about a gentleman who called in a bomb threat. Because his girlfriend the flight attendant was maybe that Somehow that would make her more attracted to something like that. I just came out seems to be a thing. Yeah it's a thing it's not a good thing that is a thank thank H Accident Ute Air Boeing seven thirty-seven eight hundred at Sochi on September. First Twenty eighteen overran runway on landing. Have we talked about this on our show. It's been a while the M. A. K.. Released their a final report And apparently upset Simon a little bit because they didn't really notify anybody that but there talk yellowstone. Maybe nobody will notice. The aircraft overran the runway destroying destroying and damaged by fire was caused by the following factors. Okay repeated disregarding in the winter warnings which when entered a let me read the actual report here. What happened Well anyway they okay. Let me go down here. The MLK analyze the first approach to runway six stating that. The aircraft descended through one thousand feet in an entirely stabilized approach descending through eight hundred fifty feet feet above ground. The crew received a predictive wind shear oral warning. Go around winter ahead the crew however did not react neither discussed the warning ignore initiated a go around but continued the approach. By the way predictive wind shear as using the raid artists can pretty much directly ahead maybe a little bit to the left and right and what is looking before his radar returns especially like really ugly radar returns like thunderstorms and obviously the radar picked up. The predictive wind shear system picked up a really nasty sell that they were heading toward and so they got the you know go around when she are ahead now most everybody would would go. We should probably go around because his telling us go around. When's your head? They continue They did not react. Neither neither discussed the warning nor initiated a go around but continued the approach descending through the decision height of six hundred twenty seven feet neither pilot flying nor pilot pilot monitoring. There was a first officer flying announced a decision to continue or go around. The aircraft continued the approach. Descending through one hundred seventy seventy feet above ground sort of getting close touchdown about eight hundred fifty meters ahead of the room with threshold. Reactive Wind Shear alert was issued wind. Shear Wind Shear Wind Shear. Here so of course they must have so. That means it's actually.

"Drops at five hundred feet out of match up but I ain't feel does similar sort of thing. It varies quite quickly. So the amount that would have reached ground level would have been pretty small but still enough to cause irritation upset. I have absolutely no doubt but it's not like they would jetissoning something really talk sake all poisonous. That aviation fuel is basically paraffin You know it's It's it's not nice. If you get on you in large quantities but the sort of level it was coming down at it would would not have been a huge problem in my mind The captain always has the authority to go against anything. The written is manual Danielsen. If he decided he absolutely needed to jettison feel below five thousand eight he would be legally allowed to do it but afterwards then you have to sit down with everyone everyone and decide whether that was a safe action on of recline action on I guess we could find out in the future. Now I've mentioned his Youtube channel all the time. One Brown Block elyria channel. He is actually a qualified Triple seven first officer for Major legacy carrier and he has a wonderful video talking about goes into a lot of detail. Just as Miami Rick did on the mechanics of fuel dumping and everything but but John Excuse me one goes into even more detail about what may have been happening what they may have been thinking about out etc So I I'll put a link to his youtube channel on the specific youtube video regarding this this incident here. If air traffic control Israel had known that they were actually going to dump fuel it would have just been a matter of veteran them over the water and nobody would have gotten any of the residual effect of the fuel dumping. Yes yes. This is my thought process. I I'm not going to saint in legal side of things because I have reserved my rights on on my thoughts here in the United States with that so I'm not going to incriminate anybody anything However as far as You know persecution the media. Yeah as we know Get Unsan these guys just taken off. They've got a fully loaded. Triple seven with a engine aging issue. I'm not sure if that as a captain I mean where Mandy quarterb Monday morning quarterbacking quarterbacking it's beyond belief In the media and everybody has their comments on it but the bottom line. Is this gentleman in or you know female L. Whoever's in the cockpit I don't know it was They did a job Net Job was to get the aircraft safely back on the ground with two hundred plus people on the aircraft. So it's almost like you damned if you're doing damned if you don't. I don't know that they even thought about going out holding over the ocean but I don't know Oh that I personally would do that Knowing that I only have one engine left I think bring airplane background Input the aircraft on the ground procedurally. You know they'll probably very busy and they probably going through checklists in as assembly line that we fly for as we are. We're we're taught the you know. We got one guy finding a plane. That's always focusing on the other person's wearing the Qr h well. When you're that time progress will you know how long was fifteen minutes? Let's see the the point might be made that they weren't really. It wasn't a time. Compressed situation because this airplane this triple seven is a he atop airplane. It's certified to fly on one engine for over five hours. It's like one of the highest tops ratings out there so I'm not sure that you could really argue that it was a time sensitive situation Now you maybe you could. I'm just saying I I would. Because now you've seen your seal engine close land Low altitude doesn't take it doesn't take a whole lot to think about the fact that what happened at the Hudson to think about right now. We have a completely new situation near and we don't eat in that situation you don't know what caused it causing the compressor stall it could have been an intake. Averts you know you don't know but I'm thinking I'm close to the airport I don't want to necessarily take the chance of flying around sky burn off in and dumped me fuel for thirty minutes. Forty minutes on a single engineer all the other point that Wan makes in his Video is the fact that that airplane is fully certified to land at its at the take off weight so On that runway. That's one of the things that they briefed before anyway. Please watch that video. It's A. It's very enlightening in my mind You know for for that particular airplane at that Particular Airport Fuel dumping is not necessarily Sir can land at the full weight And that's why I kind of think that Whoever was talking on the radio was thinking? WE'RE NOT GONNA DUMP FUEL WE'RE GONNA come back. And then somebody changed their mind at some point and started the dumping procedure and forgot to let air traffic control. No and then. They forgot that they were still dumping fuel at a point way too. Hello so we'll wait chance me jeff that what was the time was compressed. Not they were. There was probably self-induced. Yeah that's one of those things in training that that's why we spent so much time on threat era management in the bucket of time bucket. A no time and making sure that we don't inappropriate league put a situation into the. We don't have any time like we were on fire kind of bucket and in this case. They're not on fire. You know I I know. We're we're really analyzing the same. We're in the situation. But I'm saying I. I'm not so sure that it was a a an issue of time compression but maybe just miscommunication in the cockpit in somebody may have started feel feel dumping procedure and maybe not everybody knew and not everybody was on the same page there in the cockpit. I'm guessing I don't know my point isn't that they were time compressing themselves. Mike Mike Mike thing is is that just like when I just had that recent issue. That happened time time in we built in time but it was no no nonsense. Get the airplane on the ground type deal. Is that even though there. Is this time. The perception of the person of the people in the flight deck at that time the perception is that time is going by quicker so yes it is good to build in time however as you Ryan through a procedure you can have that feeling of being a compressed time because he relative position to the airport. That's all I'm saying right but again I don't know if that's actually the issue here. The issue is not whether it was time compression or not it was why they dumped dump the fuel when at when they told air traffic control. They weren't going to because what my point is. Is that when you're running the procedure you can have that misperception of time when running procedure. So that's it could lead to error. It could lead to not thinking things through completely in what you're doing. That's the only thing I'm I'm really getting at what he that's all I said. What do you think nick what I'm thinking is I'm a believer that it was the situation. The media situation has been resolve to the point where you've dealt with that particular engine full an identity. Shut it down to do we because I had to to do is pull it back door idle so they're not actually on one engine got older systems going. Everything's running the powered by one. Engine one engine to idle And they bring it round for a an immediate recovery the amount of fuel that game to successfully jettison in that show Hatton is actually GonNa be pretty small because it takes quite a considerable time. If you're on a big long whole leg to throw enough fuel over board to get back down to your landing white so you know it's still going to be overweight when you land certainly in my aircraft you would have been having had a similar problem coming or having had a problem. Coming out of Shanghai by a London We had dumped for forty five fifty minutes to get back to lending weight So I didn't think they gonNA make a significant difference to their weight in the ten minutes outside of that they have to dump feel so I if I've been in the cockpit identity out of made the dumping decision on say if we want to get to the aircraft on the ground. Let's do it. We haven't got time to dump. It's not GonNa make a big difference and and it just going to add another proced- release checklist. We're trying to do now. I have no idea what happened on the COP it. Yeah but my feeling is if you've got the situation -Tuation under control and you have time to dump in the yard over the ocean. You Fly ash dumping pattern. You get rid of the field. You bring it back if you don't really have I've got time to dump 'cause you WanNa get airplane on the ground you're dumb. You bring the era pint strike by throw it on the ground right. I agree all right. We'll hopefully we'll learn more information about this. Yeah let's dump this okay. Item item to or be in the news here You know what you know. We don't hear enough about the Boeing seven. Three seven Max dome. It's Max match one thing. It's maxed out. And we have really has been and Boeing Boeing. This is a big surprise. Had its worst year in three three decades and lost. The title of world's biggest plane maker Boeing recorded a negative number of commercial airplane sales for Twenty nineteen its worst sales performance. In at least thirty years more orders were cancelled and replaced bringing the planemaker down. Eighty seven orders compared to the start of the year Boeing's deliveries. Were also down significantly. The ongoing Boeing seven thirty-seven MAC scandal was a major factor in the fallen orders and week. Delivery totals sign up for business insider siders transportation newsletter. Sorry a nice ad for business insider. That's by by the way where we're reading this news. Article Boeing's Commercial Airplane Division lost orders. We can talk about the negative orders. Starkly demonstrated the damage inflicted by knowing by the ongoing seven seven. Thirty seven Max crisis along with trade wars So you know you get the idea. has not been as bad a bad year for the Boeing Wing Company. For sure well not only that but all of its suppliers that also. Yeah you're right. They're the ones domino vectra down through. He can't in the rights to the economy. Yeah the One of the big ones Dana is the I think it's called spirit not spirit airlines but Another company that makes the fuselage's for the seven thirty seven and and They've been extremely hardly hit hard. Hit VIRGA Yeah so I don't know. And the word is on the straight trait that it might not be the summa until they across certified or beyond war beyond go on beyond then you. You wonder what the Hell's going to happen. Yeah I think a lot of people are saying they're going to have to rebrand thing not call it Max anymore. I don't know what they're gonNA call it but any who Seven hundred eighty seven their ago. I don't know if you can make it a completely new. I don't know we'll see might be interesting marketing stuff Moving on a C.. Here's an interesting one Back in October This is from your mileage. May Vary Dot net. It's a blog back over. We wrote about a woman who managed to.

"Taking the time to join us. Really Cool Dude I could talk about anything honestly Talking about the. NFL is great. And I really. I appreciate his attention to detail as to things like you know what Mike McCarthy does press conferences. I love talking about tiny things like that and so his insight was very much appreciated. Appreciated you can and you absolutely should follow him on twitter at Zach Rapport. That's Z.. A. C. H.. Zack Morris writes about it that way I think maybe not But a CHR. Apo Rt Zack's a good dude. And I thought that was really great invaluable insight in terms of what the cowboys and all of us should be expecting from Mike Mike McCarthy but going to be fine going to be very fun and very interesting to see how the next next days unfold. We'll see at the time of this recording. I'm recording this about nine pm on Monday night. The Dallas cowboys themselves have not confirmed the hiring of Mike McCarthy. They're the only people in the world that haven't confirm that in fact if you watch the big podcast that the Dallas cowboys dot com team did on Monday. They had to be very careful and say Fox is reported. Whatever so we'll see you know when the cowboys themselves ultimately confirmed the news and then they'll obviously be a press conference coming at some point later in the week as the cowboys announced their new head coach but It's GonNa be fun I'm pumped. I'm excited I'm intrigued. And we have a lot more questions to ask on a lot more insight to glean where you have some more guests coming up. We should have the two episodes dropping tomorrow throughout the day. We'll have one probably about three thirty four. PM Central Time going to be talking to Kevin Coal from PF. Kevin is great. wrote an awesome awesome article kind of getting really in depth into Mike McCarthy and his time in Green Bay and so we're going to talk to him about it over pro football focus. And then we're supposed to were said to have have y'all who's Charles Robinson on the pod. Probably I know. I said that we'll have two episodes drop on Tuesday. I don't know I said that the Kevin cold episode will drop on in the middle or in the middle of Tuesday and we'll drop the Charles Robinson episode on Wednesday morning. Maybe you know maybe twenty four hours from one. We're dropping this when so late Tuesday night you you know early Wednesday kind of like we're doing against a very busy time and got a lot of requests. A lot of tweets lot of messages. Lots of Instagram deums wondering you know saying. Hey we're gonNA keep this schedule going and we'll be talking every day throughout the off season. Hey we're not going anywhere. I am blogging. The Boys Dot Com. SP nations home for the Dallas Cowboys. We are not going anywhere It's the season what offseason the Dallas cowboys must be talked about and you and I were best friends baby. And that's what we're going to do all right and you know what you're gonNA GONNA do. You're going to have the absolute best Tuesday of all time. I could have the best Tuesday ever and frankly you know I just gotTa say God ed I do it the best Tuesday of all time you know why because you deserve it so that being said it was my friends as always go cowboys out it out.

"But it's a very busy week. Obviously there's a lot going on with regards the Dallas cowboys. We're going to have a lot of podcast this week. We're GONNA have a lot articles. We already have a lot of articles. We got a lot of guests coming on. We've got a guest on this episode. We'll get to that in a second so make sure you are buckled in. You are ready because these are fun. Times the Dallas cowboys have a new head coach. You obviously heard our emergency episode of the Ocho that we released About Monday before. newish Dallas cowboys not officially in terms of the team announcing anything but officially at least in terms of literally every outlet in the world noting that Mike McCarthy is set to become the new New Dallas cowboys head coach newest styles compensated coach. And Mike McCarthy Making Moves Mike Nolan the New Orleans Saints linebackers coach said to be his defensive coordinator. As you're likely aware if not don't worry that's what we're here for Mike. Nolan was the head coach of the San Francisco. Forty niners that hired Michael McCarthy to be his offensive coordinator long ago that that was the group if you don't know your NFL history as well. Maybe you're new to the game. That was the group that drafted Alex Smith number. One overall in two thousand and five over Aaron Rodgers the the same Aaron Rodgers that McCarthy would go on to work with and when a super bowl with the Green Bay packers. So there's a lot happening I mean it's it's exciting changes exciting. I think it goes without saying we wish all the best of Jason Garrett It'll be interesting to see if we hear anything this week from him in terms of interviews or whatever may it'd be the case but for now Dallas cowboys are headed in a new direction. And that's week. Is My puppy bear. He's obviously very excited. He wants to hear his toy And you know it's it's again. There's there's a lot going on. We need to get information from people. This is a very busy week in terms of guests and on this episode so we have none other than a great friend of Mine Zach. Rapport Zach covers the Green Bay packers for academic packing company espy nations. Home for the Green Bay packers the best green NBA packers website in the world. Zach also the CO host and producer for the podcast. which is their podcast? I was a guest on their show. When the cowboys hosted the packers way back back in the season you know anymore? Everything's in the rear view mirror. Man Anzac we talked about Mike McCarthy and kind of what to expect and it was a really great conversation that I think you're very much going to enjoy so without further ado. Let's get right to it. Zach report from ACME PACKING JOINS US next right here on the pleased to be joined by a very special guest very good friend of the show and of me and I'm sure of all of the one and only Zach rap or Rapport four he. He goes by really he's jack-of-all-trades he's Co host producer for the ABC Pot Acme Packing Company espy nations home for Green Bay the packers coverage the best green bay packers website throughout the entire Internet. And Beyond Zach. How goes it thank you for taking the time to join US my pleasure? RJ It goes pretty. Yeah well and I would say greetings from the frozen Tundra. But as you know. I'm actually located in Albuquerque New Mexico so I'm not too distant a neighbor from you over there right When you guys had me on the Pied Few months ago before you know it doesn't really matter what it was for. I joked about breaking bad and we had a good Chad and life is just very different forever. One since then what was it for. There was a game right. You know it doesn't matter you know and and you know it truly doesn't matter And I think that this is the way I want segue into this. Obviously Zach knows the Green Bay packers but the better than anybody And I don't know if you know this or if you've seen it throughout the day Zach did you know that Mike McCarthy New Dallas Cowboys head coach has as many wins in eighteen stadium in the postseason is Jason Garrett while I did not know that at all officer the packers won Super Bowl. Forty five but was then cowboys stadium so forgetting technical here. He's only got one at age ent stadium when the packers won in the divisional around in two thousand sixteen. Two Thousand Twenty game and Jason Garrett only his cowboys ever only beat the lions and that Wa per game of sugar member fourteen and then last season the Seattle seahawks You've got your hands full with that this weekend in the divisional round as well isn't isn't that crazy. I mean you know the cowboys. Now have a head coach and running. Running back Zeke Elliot who both have won championships in their stadium and neither of which will what the cowboys. Yeah that's a bit of Trivia that I did not know but really sort of Looking back it it shouldn't be that surprising Given given that he is no longer the coach of the team for a reason. Let me ask you before we get started The this whole week has been like this weird drawn out process of will will they are. Won't they keep Keep Garrett on on or let him go were you surprised at all that they let him go the way that it went down. and Are you happy to be moving on Why I wasn't surprised that it happened? I think I think you know I certainly get the sense that maybe thirty one other fan base is thought that it was a will they. Won't they always felt like a win wheelbay and so turned turned into A. Why are they doing this way? and I'm sure you saw the report on Sunday from Jay Glazer ultimately broke the news about McCarthy and everything I think the the Jason Garrett was literally still lobbing for his job and I don't know if you've seen this take take kind of became. Oh the cowboys you know. They're I just they're they're doing this to respect you know they're they're really just trying to honor him. You know in trying to give him all every opportunity to say his last goodbyes and everything and and you can kinda buy that for a second however I mean to to kind of have him look like this. Putz I mean a little bit. You know with all this I mean there. There's really no validity. You did that in my mind. So I've been fortunate enough to task are actually and I think anybody you run across will say the same. He's an incredible person and he's a really really charming guy and a really stand up citizen type of guy you know you'd want your daughter to marry sort of thing but ultimately it didn't get done I mean you know the a little bit of Trivia. We started off this episode. I think is part of why it's time to go. Because you know data points like that exist you know what I mean. Yeah the Kinda guy that you want your daughter harder to marry but not the kind of guy you want to be the head coach of your football team. I also want to just Go back to a second two pots which I think is a really underused Insult these days. Yeah so Kudos to you for for that. I actually heard a little bit of. It wasn't a theory so much as an observation from the The around the NFL guys talking about how there was this sort of Drawn out will there. Won't they and kind of toying with the media. And then of course Jerry. Jones does the Jerry Jerry Jones. Es thing he can possibly do which is to announce the news during the Eagle's playoff game. Yeah I mean you cannot find a person on on earth convince me that that wasn't the case had to be well not only you know to announce the parting of Garrett through in the middle of that game but then to announce the McCarthy News News on on the Monday morning following an incredible wild card weekend in. Nobody talked about the Tennessee. Titans on Monday. You know there was definitely top doc but not to the same degree that should have been I think about Tom Brady and his his career with New England. All those story lines just got buried by this And I think because because this is a really I don't know the word associated with it but it's a really sort of narrative juic- higher You know I mentioned that. McCarthy's guys many playoff wins in the building. air air but I don't know how much you've realized this. I'm sure that you realize the success that your team has had against the cowboys but McCarthy sort of mystically tied to them in that You know it was McCarthy's packers in two thousand ten. That beat the tar out of the cowboys that led to Wade Phillips getting fired which ultimately opened the door for Jason Garrett promoted take the full time head coach and then you know it was McCarthy's packers that challenge the day's catch and it was McCarthy's packers that you know I'm not sure how well you remember with a twenty sixteen regular season game. The cowboys played at Lambeau. But that was the first sort of. WHOA DAKYNS Zeke? This team is really good because they beat the packers without Dez Bryant. I remember and off. I bet you remember because the packers were those God awful throwbacks but Talk about those it's good and then inherited twenty and you know Mason Crosby in you know all these things and then devante adams in two thousand seventeen and I didn't even mention Matt. Flynn in two thousand thirteen. You know all these just gut wrenching cowboys. Moments came with Mike McCarthy on the other side so is it weird to Kinda see materialize like the the team that he's sort of had his way with. It's a new kind of owns him to go coach them. I I imagine that would be weird for you. It's actually not that. It's not that weird for me but I'm and maybe I'm just kind of a weird weird example of a of a football fan. 'cause I really get into the And and I'm sure we'll talk about this a little bit later but I I really get into not just the football side of things but I like the Meta the media coverage people's Mannerisms uh-huh and social media and I just eat that stuff up and so from that perspective. I mean McCarthy was always a guy who when he talked about the packers as an organization he his bosom swelled with pride he was so proud to be part of such a storied storied franchise and one one of the originals. And and. I'm sure he just feel similarly about the cowboys another very historic franchise and for him. I mean you know. It's Y- he he's got a feel good going from you. Know the the the most venerable franchise in my mind to the second most venerable franchise. You know he's he's he's like covering all the bases so but no it doesn't it. I think a lot of people are weirded out and it will it will look weird to see him in a different color windbreaker windbreaker on the sidelines. Especially because there's no wind inside that stadium but no personally. I don't think it's weird but.
Facial recognition, society, and the law
"Have you seen this article That Microsoft posted on facial show recognition. I did because I sent it to you but for the sake of stagecraft no tell me more. Oh okay well Yeah let's talk about it in just a moment. You're listening to the near Digression. You're not a very good actor Katie. It's I'm really not not very convincing. Yes this is a pretty cool article that you sent me that Microsoft put out and would it seems to be He's saying is that the technology has Has Gotten to a point where we need to stop talking about what can be done and with the technology and start actually putting Similar mutations on the way that facial recognition can be used With the argument being that if we don't own then it will be used for nefarious purposes and a famous purposes or just even even with good intentions can be used used in overreaching ways. And it's a lot harder to pull that behavior back than it is to Set limitations up before before we get to that point Yeah no I think so. This is an article that was published under with the nominal author being the president of of Microsoft Guests is that yeah there were there were more than just him that was involved in drafting rafting it but it was or the legal department or something but of yeah. It's it's an interesting article. It's not a particularly technical one. But rather it's more of a sociological one or even a legal one more of illegal one than anything else and the premise of the argument is. I'm paraphrasing heavily here but regulate us which you don't hear coming out of tech companies very often which is a little interesting. You know if I hadn't noticed notice that this was written by people at Microsoft I could have imagined this is This could be a New York Times. Think peace or this could be a you know A lot of different agencies the FDA Electric Frontier Finish and could have written this. But but yeah it's it's tech companies saying. Hey we we need regulation there needs to be regulation in the space and I think one of the incentives For a tech company who is playing in the space Microsoft Microsoft to say something like that is that regulation so self regulation comes to some degree at the expense of of your ability to compete in a free market but if you have governmental regulation Or some sort of regulation that applies to everyone one within a space then your incentives become a little bit Simpler and cleaner. You don't have companies with perhaps a a worse moral compass ending up with a competitive advantage. Yeah I mean I think the incentives questions such an interesting one. I think we should summarize article quickly before we got started to speculate as to how it surfaced reasons and if we think that there's anything else that's worth considering here. Yeah let's say Ivan. Yeah so Microsoft is talking about facial recognition software in particular so this is a very very fairly specific slice of technology that of course Microsoft being a big tech company has products that use facial recognition or that have components of that that capability in them COM potentially would be building out many more in the years to come so as they're talking about restrictions that should be placed on this type hype technology or or limits on its use their effectively asking for regulation of themselves as well as their colleagues league's competitor's and whatnot the other people who are participating in the space so as I said that's a little bit interesting. That's not something that you typically see. Yeah I also want to say that. It's it's nice to see kind of a sober account of a technology like usually you see much more idealistic approaches that are Being written about like actually one of the things in the articles that talks about some of the benefits of using facial recognition. So some of the positive ways that it's it's been rolled out like for example. One of the sentences is police in New Delhi. Recently child facial recognition technology and identify almost three thousand missing children four days like. That's what's an incredible success story and there are a number of them here in the article but it's also nice to see that good news being taken with a grain of salt by talking about The ways that this could be misused right so we should talk about what those are fairly high level and in particular as I was is reading this you know. I think there's kind of two premises here. That are worth detangling. A little bit one is. Are we generally sitting here thinking. They're making a good case that this technology is could be a little bit dangerous or not always excellent if it's deployed with ill intent or just sometimes not carefully so there's the issue of the technology itself just like do we think that this stuff his unequivocally always good or always bad and that. That's that's one set of maybe decisions that you have to make and I think in general will you know we can discuss it a little bit more. In general. I think most people would agree. That there's good parts and bad parts of it and that you you know. Ideally we get more the good and less of the bad but the second part of that the more controversial part I think is okay. We'll so how if we want to have more of the good and less of the bad. The premise of this article is that Microsoft is specifically advocating for a legislative approach screen to be taken by presumably primarily the government of the United States. But you know it could happen more on international air at the state level as well And that is a more more I think that is a more provocative claim that as a more controversial claim Lake Shore. We all want to have the good stuff not the bad stuff but should that be done via legislation. Is something that you know. Many more people might have questions about so. I thought those two things I think are worth considering separately in certain cases So I they talk about Several different like you said Several different positive use cases says of facial recognition technology. You know this is not something. That's unequivocally bad. Of course. Microsoft probably makes a lot of money from this is do their Competitors but then they go into three specific types of problematic use cases or situations that they think should be addressed with legislation relation and make the case for legislation. And in each of those circumstances so just to go through those real quickly we can dig into them a little more if you'd like The the first case is around bias and discrimination that sometimes this technology can cause or exacerbate. Or you're certainly not ameliorate biases that exist in society and that that can be in general something that we we don't want Our computer vision programs to be racist. I'm paraphrasing heavily young. And so if they are that's not ideal. The second one is around privacy and that if computer vision programs are being used to recognize individuals as they're out and about in ways especially ways that they don't know about or that they haven't approved that that is problematic and then the third one is around democracy and human rights. They kind of privacy argument taken to a very large scale and or being done systematically by government entities is particularly problematic attic for stuff like democracy in the ability to freely discuss and freely assemble and that that should be taken seriously as well so should we dive into those three Before we kind of take a as zoom back. Yeah that's great so first step is biased discrimination right and we're going to kind of zoom through all of this is actually quite a lengthy article and it's a very good read. It's very accessible. So if you want to if you want to zoom into any of these pieces a bit more at least I would say I highly recommend reading it. I don't know we'll have a kid. I thought it was really good We'll have a link on LINEAR NEGRA DOT COM as as always yeah so The the I guess summary There of what they suggest suggest for By discrimination are kind of two things one is requiring transparency. So if you have Acme the company which is implemented facial recognition services then acme companies should be required by law to say. Hey we have we have shown that are we have tested that. Our facial recognition services Have these capabilities and these limitations and this it should all be in terms that the consumers and customers can understand So no legalese. No not much technical jargon basically Li like our facial recognition service works in these ways has these limitations and were aware of these things and then The second piece is enabling third party already testing. So you know. Acme company says the our facial recognition systems work but they also be required by Some Law to have independent third parties be able to be able to test their services independently. verifiably without bias. In say like hey you know these. This implementation is actually really good in terms of accuracy. Or doesn't have much unfair bias. Sir are any of these various things. Yeah and so. The thing that I thought was kind of interesting about these arguments is not exactly that they're going to solve every problem But instead if you're you know a person who thinks a lot about what should be legislated versus stuff like we'll shouldn't this be taken can care of by the free market so if there's a a company that's putting out some kind of facial recognition technology that has a discrimination problem like shouldn't people eventually that product won't work as well as its competitors and then it you know people will use the competitor's instead and the free market will take care of that and to a certain extent I think that that's that's a reasonable counter argument to make but the specific argument here. Is that the free market is is not quite functioning as smoothly as it needs to for that kind of mechanism to take place so if you think about other types of products. So if I were to say buy a new washing machine. This was something that I did about a year ago. I spent or not me more than the point. My husband Kasese better at this stuff than I am. There's been a bunch of time on consumer reports reading about all the different kinds of washing machines so yeah learning learning about the things that make a washing machine good or bad which you are qualified to review washing machines. And you'll need to do this once once every twenty years ten years. I hope twenty years but I'm not. I'm not banking on my washing machine lasting for thirty years but anyway the point is that there's A. There's a very specific service that consumer reports place here which is that. They sort of define testing testing protocol for washing machines. They helped me understand. What are the things that are that I might care about in a washing machine? These are some of these are things that I never even. I really thought about like there are certain types of washing machines that are more or less likely to kind of rip up your clothes after a while or some of them are really loud or some of them. Don't get your clothes as clean as I don't really understand These are all things that they can test for and that I had never would have even thought to in some cases ask right and so what what they do there. Is there defining of those standards. They can go out and buy one one of each of these washing machines. They wash hundred loads of closing it. It's a pretty intensive process but I am the beneficiary then of this Nice write-up that they produce at the end of it and I can take that information and I can go vote with my wallet and so that last piece that's the market piece. The only reason that that works works and that I'm not spending my money on a bad washing machine is because there's all of this stuff that happened upfront. That got me the information that I needed to make an informed decision session. And so I'm paraphrasing in some cases interpreting the argument a little bit here for Microsoft. But what they're saying. Is that the reason that you need legislation in this particular case is not because it's going to make all of these programs work better. That's not something that legislation can do but one thing that can do is require you to report in a standardized way how you are algorithm compares against everybody else's in these agreed upon ways and that that allows the those market forces to sort out the winners from the losers
Everything You Need to Know About the TWA Hotel at JFK
"Our way to the U K I stopped over in New York City spent a night at the JFK airport not in the airport but as you'll recall they have this new swanky hotel which is all aircraft airports themed the Twa Hotel and that was really really really cool will definitely have to figure out how to plan a meet up there. At some point did it was kind of last minute thing so he did have a couple of our friends of the program program join me for for drinks Dave Ambien tiny woman and that was very nice of them to come out and spend a little bit of time. It wasn't a big formal meet up but we'll have to do that added at some point because join poolside on the top of the hotel so the pool is an interesting thing. It's if you're not a hotel guest. There's quite a steep charge to use the pool guest guest so you can. I believe he can actually bring one guest but then there's a charge for your second-guessed. Oh okay so sir. That's when you said to Dave sorry Dave Tanya. Actually I did not realize this until the next day because otherwise it would have probably been worth the effort to try and out there but no we had a good time in the There's a couple of different places where you can enjoy a beverage. The Sunken Lounges Fun Retro E and they've got the old flight boards all set up to to change do different things and then you can go out on the constellation the Connie and it's all set up as a bar on the inside I'm so we had a couple of drinks out there actually just just a champagne toast I think and a lot of other interesting things just you can walk around the debt little bits and pieces set up where you can see some of the history of Twa the you know old uniform Slayton stuff and just bought the payback not the fabrics they printed it but never actually turned it down uniform but there is actually a blurb about it in the Little Museum area. It's definitely there so highly recommended if you're spending the night if you need to spend the night near the airport at JFK it's a great location if you're an Aggie if you need a room that overlooks the ramp and the runway that's awesome. I'm when you're there you can go up to the pool and the bar of their and overlooks most of terminal five and three three four me right our planes out. It was like a three forty six hundred convention will have like three of them parked ma'am. I didn't know they were really super long international terminal four. That's four yeah four okay yeah I was trying to think I know there's one number. That's kind of that. I think five is no longer. They're the no five is jet blue. Oh well. They reunited yeah. That's why I wasn't sure on numbering I should know because I flew into the one terminal on acme cme actually are beautiful pan. AM terminal was torn down a couple of years off. I don't know all I know is that I came in on an acme regional flight actually actually and we parked all the way the very end of the terminal. My bags arrived at the baggage claim well before I actually got there and I was the second person off the plane before yeah they really did. You just don't get enough exercise really run for those bags so speaking of that how so how was the run in Erie so it was just really a training run for me. It was actually a full on marathon that was happening. I did not run the full marathon 'cause I've been dealing with some combine our injuries so discussing with the the coach that I work with decided just to do one lap of the two lap course and run it out at goal pace and more or less was able to do that through about ten miles of the thirteen miles but pretty happy with that for for what I've been dealing with and trying to do recently that was okay so oh now you've got us up you were in New York and then you now is the reason why you stayed there is because you originally had planned to be there a little bit earlier in the UK but there some kind of an issue that prevented that not entirely so we plan to when we bought these trips so justice is not great. He's he has really hard time sleeping on airplanes especially for overnight flights or long distances. I don't personally don't really have that problem. I can sleep pretty much anywhere but I thought well. This'll be really nice. It's vacation. I'm going to book us a nice flight in business class with lie flat seats and just as one request was can we be on the airplane with the the fewest number of people and I was like we're talking like triple sevens and seven forty sevens here so we actually decide to fly out of New York before I actually looked at at all of the details of different plates just because there's a lot more options so I was like look we could do a daytime flight if you wanted to. We could do and evening play like let's I'm going to be in Pennsylvania anyway. It's a nice place to meet up. We'll collect ourselves there over the UK and then I went oh I know what we could do. Let me look into this so British. Airways has a flight on an eight three eighteen. There's all business class. It's only thirty two seats and if you book it for an advance it's usually not any more expensive than regular business. The Replacement Cosign for Dr Cohn Concord. I know which is very similar. We've given it the same call sign and now we have a eighteen as opposed to the conchords lying goes goes right into London said London City doesn't city and that's like you know we'll get to London city and then we have a few days before the goodwood revival starts so we could basically either stay in London name. We can go someplace else in Europe we could do anything from there is really easy to catch another flight somewhere well about two weeks before our plan travel. is when British Airways decided there was going on strike so yeah that unfortunately affected our outbound plate late was right in the middle of the street days so had to scramble a little bit so it didn't quite work out the way I planned we did end up down the back of a triple seven but okay Britt with a lot of other full flight yes and then we we ended up going to number for a few days to sightsee eighteen or excuse me what's Jesus did well dumb was is it wrapped in the sheep stomach now. This was fried fried. Hanging is actually really good. It was actually very tags on we had like a pulled pork sandwich and you could have a haggis spread one of the lake condiments on it. It was lovely beautiful city had had never been before it was nice to walk around for a few days and taking some of the sites but pretty much covers almost every I mean. Did you ever go back to work after we did the last uh. When did we do the last show? I don't know I dated Thursday last Thursday I did. I went to work on Friday. Okay okay there you the next week okay cool excellent any more I did also go to Niagara Falls. We Oh they really need to be doing is looking through all my photos that I've taken from the past now I had so I got to Erie Pennsylvania on Saturday afternoon and and had a few hours to kill like six or seven and I really didn't see any reason to stay in Erie since I wasn't really resting and preparing for a race per se they said you know I've never been to Niagara Falls. It's two hours away. I can get there before it's dark.
How Did Clickers Save Lives on D-Day?
"Today's episode is brought to you by Oregon.

Fifty that's peo- d five zero Oregon home is where the bugs aren't. Welcome to brain stuff. A production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff. Lauren Vogel bomb here shortly after midnight in the early hours of June sixth, nineteen forty four nearly twenty thousand allied paratroopers dropped behind enemy lines to be the first soldiers on the ground on d day conditions were terrible that cloud, cover, and fog made it nearly impossible to spot their landing targets and the night sky was pierced with Nazi heavy anti aircraft rounds and Steiber fire for those paratroopers, who made it to the ground, many were separated from their units and unsure of their locations alone in enemy-held territory. They had to find their comrades in the fog, blanketed dark without tipping off the enemy good thing. They had their clicker. Hours earlier when boarding the transport aircraft back in England. Members of the United States one hundred and first division were each handed a small metal box that would serve as a low tech emergency communication device by pushing down on the list of the box with the thumb and releasing it made a sharp clicking sound their instructions were simple. If you're on the ground, and here's someone approaching click once two clicks reply means a friend. No, click could be in trouble. Twenty four hours after landing. The paratroopers were told to ditch or hide their clippers allied commanders were worried that the devices would fall into Nazi hands and be used trick allied soldiers into thinking that an approaching fo was friendly, the day clippers were only an action for twenty four hours, but who knows how many lives were saved by the simple, ingenuity. Inspired by the seventy fifth anniversary of the day invasion. This year, the British company that made those original day clicker is on a search and rescue mission of its own of the seven thousand clicker is manufactured by acme whistles during World War, Two less than a dozen have been recovered. Now. The company has launched a worldwide campaign to find the loss. Deta- clicker and learn the stories behind the brave troops, who carried them we spoke with Ben McFarland, the head of sales, and marketing at acme whistles, which still manufactures whistles in the same Birmingham England factory that took a direct hit from Nazi bombers during the war. He says that the few confirmed clippers in circulation are all held by museums and private collectors, acme whistles itself doesn't possess even one of the original clippers, although it sells an exact replica made with the original machine presses just because there have been so few recovered DJ clippers it doesn't mean that there are not more out there. Mcfarland, said it just means that people don't know that they've got them acme was those has been businesses. Eighteen seventy and is responsible for a number of important whistle. Firsts. It's founder Joseph Hudson. Invent? The first police whistle used by the London. Metropolitan police prior to that the Bobby on the beat used a wooden rattle. Hudson. Also invented the very first sports, whistle the original acme thunder before that football referees. That's soccer to Americans in the UK waved, a white handkerchief to get the players. Attention, not quite as effective. But back to the clippers since the clippers were exclusively supplied to the US, one hundred first airborne McFarland, expects that many reside in America either handed down as heirlooms from generation to generation, or in the hands of antiques collectors, who may not know the Geraldo providence of these humble looking boxes, the day, clicker, also known as the acne cricket was originally used by marching band leaders to click out the tempo of piece of music. They're made of brass and are half open rectangular boxes about the size of the top joint of thumb by half open. I mean that one short end in parts of two walls, are busy from the design the remaining short end is labeled with the acme made an England if you think you're in possession of an original day, clicker MacFarlane wants you to. Email him personally at Ben dot McFarland at acme whistles dot CO dot UK. He's already heard from at least one American woman who appears to have the real deal acne was those plans to invite all clicker owners to England take a tour of the factory receiving engraved, commemorative whistle and share the story of the brave paratrooper who carry the clicker into combat on the day.

I'll be at the miracle theatre in Washington DC, if you've heard the end of the world ten times already, or if you've never heard a second of it, it matters, not because this show, explores themes, covered in the end of the world and also chases down, new avenues, like, how good could things be if we managed to survive the next century or two. So come see me this June nineteenth and twentieth in Minneapolis in DC.
Do this to connect better with your podcast audience
"Today, we're talking about editing. So you're in the process, you're following the acme 'em method. You've assessed your audio. You've cleaned it up. You've conditioned it, you've got everything ready. And you've now mixed it and started, assembling it to make it sound great. But that's not always enough as you probably know you can have something that sounds great that just isn't really engaging. And so you also need to edit, and I'm gonna tell you right now, if you are out on the internet, if you're on Facebook or Twitter or wherever you hanging out talking to people who do audio production for podcasts, you are going to get a wide range. Of what people think about editing. Everything from people who say I never at it. I hit record. I've hit stop twenty minutes later. The thing is published ninety minutes long or whatever it is never edit. You'll also find people who literally try and go through and fix every single piece of it. And I say that to say that there's more than one style. And so you have to kind of understand what your goals are for your show for, for the engaging missions show. I want to highlight the stories of the guests, what they've shared and not do anything to distract from that. So I tend to go for a conversational feel so that I'm removing distractions or whatever, interrupts the flow of the conversation, and restarts and long pauses, but I also want it to sound natural. And I realized that some of those are part of the conversation. So what I'm trying to do is remove disfluencies to help the, the message come through with more clarity without making it sound unnatural. And believe me, that's a bit of an art. And I'm I continue to work on that every time I ended a show sometimes I'll just tell you this is well, sometimes at least for my own show. I'll even remove entire sections like when I interviewed a guy of a few months ago who had trouble translating, what he did to the audience to match their experience their interests. And so the conversation was kind of it was all over the place when we recorded, but when I got done with all the editing. And yes, I did cut some significant parts of it in order to make the conversation work it sounded like it was meant to be that way. And that was the goal. Here's the challenge for you. And for me as a podcast host, though, good, editing takes time and experience. It takes time to gain the experience and then it takes time to actually do it even if you know exactly what you're doing. It's going to take you some time when it's done right though. Your audience is going to appreciate it. Even if they don't know that you've done it, they'll appreciate it because. Because there's nothing there for them to not appreciate this just put it that way. It's kind of a negative non-appreciation your guests are going to appreciate it as well, because they'll come off sounding like a million bucks. And again, I'm not talking about the kind of editing where you remove every single thing, I'm talking about the kind of editing. That provides a single cohesive conversation that makes sense, without a lot of disfluencies, because that's what helps the message and the personality and everything to come through loud and clear. And you'll know on a personal level, you'll know that you've done a great job. Now you might be listening to yourself right now in thinking, but I, I don't have time to do all that. Yeah, it takes some time to do that. And my current to you would be to think about first off what constraints and assets do you have what do you have in terms of time, expertise money in gear when software and hardware, that kind of thing, what do you have to start with? And what's your end goal your end goal might be different than mine, and I. Want to suppose that your goals are exactly the same as mine, but consider your starting point with, with your editing what you want the final product to be like, and then what you have in the

Thing that's actually gonna make it less risky is time. I e another thirty years really to wash through the system we can't do anything about that. It is what it is. I want to talk about some of the breaches that weren't so much consumer focused, but that really could kinda hit us at a nation state level. I'm thinking about the OPM breach. I'm thinking about the Sony hack and even things like Ashley Madison friend finder where you're getting personal information that could be used to extort someone when you take a look at those tools that are useful for intelligence purposes, but also for ransom or extortion or reputational issues. I mean, it doesn't get any better than opium office personnel management has the SF eighty six standard forms that are the entry point to apply for classifications are clearances within the United States government. Whether it be confidential a secret or top secret, and above, you know, this is the one form one. Lies fits all. And India formation on that form is incredibly incredibly sensitive incredibly personal in. It's not just on the individual. It's on them. The spouse significant other that kids their parents, the significant other's parents and relatives any foreign contacts. I mean, it goes on and on and on will that information in one easy to find document that can be indexed OCR d- stolen, in even if it's the old fashioned written forms stolen in OCR later on main is a treasure trove for any intelligence agency anywhere in the world, period. Not only does it tell who someone is, you know, give potentially weaknesses about them because it's illegal to lie on that form, and it potentially toes others who to get to get to that person all of that taken together as a perfect roadmap. Really a perfect roadmap. The same thing. Terms of like from flip side, Ashley, Madison. Finder. These are two thousand fifteen sixteen. I mean, if intelligence agency is able to get active knowledge of active users on those types of sites perhaps put people in place, exploit them, exploit the individual embarrassed individual. I mean, you know, kind of treasure trove there once again and same thing. Terms of the IP breaches in Sony, just a little bit different the embarrassment or the extortion factor of Sony, but Rossi going to steal your intellectual property. I think you know, one of the JAMES BOND movies, the script was stolen a few other things were stolen there. But then that dot the extra add on is. Oh, and by the way, since you're Shane servers next door to all this fun. Coast off we're gonna look through all of your emails and find the most embarrassing emails that we can about the best stars that are out there, the ones that make you the most modern money, and we're gonna expose those emails of you complaining about Brad, Pitt are complaining about whatever store start was and. Right. I mean that goes straight to the bottom line. Yeah. Absolutely. And I wonder you know, when you look back, but when you look back at some of these big breaches is there any is there any thread that goes through them where if only we had done this. If only we'd thought about this, then maybe this wouldn't have happened. But I think there's a technical piece of that that needs to be there, but at a at a higher strategic level, I think most certainly it is absolutely a mess in terms of each one of these companies not putting enough value on the data that they have.
