Djokovic Has Coronavirus
"We'll fake. He said we might be back with an emergency podcast just amid twenty four hours after according to last one and back, we are because there have been developments in. The covid nineteen crisis that's been developing on the Adra tool. For probably over the course of the past two weeks, but is only presented itself to us over the past few days. We've obviously been following an extremely closely. We're expecting a statement from the world number one and one of the organizers of the Adra Tool. Novak Djokovic today and we have had the statement. In fact, we've had to statements from the world number one. Read you the first one just now. It starts off by confirming that Djokovic has indeed tested positive for Covid nineteen immediately upon his arrival in Belgrade he was tested along with members of his family and his team He wasn't showing any symptoms, and he says that his result is positive as his wife Yelena. Both tested negative. He goes onto. Say Everything we did. In the past month we did with a pure heart and sincere intentions. All Tournament meant to unite and share message of solidarity and compassion throughout the region. The tool has been designed to help both established and up and coming tennis players from Southeastern Europe to gain access to some competitive tennis while the various tools are on hold due to the covid nineteen situation. It was all born with philanthropic idea to direct all raised funds towards people in need, and it warmed my heart to see how everybody strongly responded to this. We organized the tournament at the moment. The crisis has weakened believing that the conditions for hosting the tool had been met. Unfortunately, this virus is still present, and it is a new reality that we are still learning to cope and live with i. am hoping things will ease with time, so we can resume lives the way they were. I am extremely sorry for each individual case of infection. I hope that it will not complicate anyone's health situation, and that everyone will be fine. I will remain in self-isolation for the next fourteen days and repeat the test. In five days now, already going to be a busy day today for we'll certainly for the British tennis media because it was the first day of. If Jamie Murray event the battle of the Brits. But obviously with this huge kind of. Story transcending the sport developing It's an even busier day. So what does I'm? Briggs want to nine PM. He wants a message David Law, saying Don't close your laptop to seen Simon. Join a common. The tennis podcast Hello Simon. We, can he Simon? As a slightly weary voice, but we're. We're very glad to have the house he day been. Well, actually I. Play tennis this morning Mitch was. Day because in. About, one o'clock PM. statement dropped in just actually almost as the first big hit in. What you might describe elite tennis in the UK in Twenty twenty. Almost simultaneously as Jamie Murray went on colts. Who Doubles match? The statement jobs and the news course navy tested positive. I. Mean The I think if you're talking about the address. It wasn't as big a deal today. The positive tests were concerning But the how many do we hereby stay ahead? Five hadn't made by the end of the end of the day and I will on Sunday night. so today it felt like a continuation rather than being quite the bombshell yesterday when. Magi my busiest every day on twitter. What were your initial reactions were? It's joke Richard subsequently released a second statement on instagram tonight, which we will come onto. But what were your reactions when that first statement came out and how? Much, did it. Differ or not from from what you were expecting from him, not in terms of necessarily the results of the test, but As somebody responsible for that tour in that tournament, his sort of degree if the responsibility is prepared to take etc.. Yeah well I mean. There was a sort of Was a source of slight cheesed-off tone to it wasn't at the. He was sort of disappointed that we hadn't seen his pure intentions. For what they were a? and. Almost implication that that should have been enough to satisfy. On, lookers than indeed know the mysterious workings of the virus, and it was a bit of a mystery that has not recognized his pure intentions for the. Positives that they were. So, he kind of sounded a little bit. Petulant in the first statement, and then by the time the second one came out, he was a lot more. Apologetic fellow somebody might have had it worse.
Body Awareness Meditation
"Grenier awareness to any sensation. You have in the body. It doesn't matter if it's uncomfortable or comfortable double but just bring your awareness to any sensation. Be Aware of the sensation now. Take your awareness away from from the sensation into the rest of your body where there are no sensations and they'll bring it back to read erotic sensations alternate between being aware of the sensation and being aware of the rest of the body without sensation. Just go back and forth from sensation to nonsense As you do this you realize that sensations are highlands of experience once again. Sensations are islands of experience in an ocean of awareness.

Automated Machine Learning with Erez Barak
"All right everyone I am here in Orlando at Microsoft ignite. And I've got the pleasure of sitting with Ariza Barack Ariza's group manager for as you're as welcome to the uh-huh podcast. Thank you thank you great to be here. Great to be with you. Sound super excited about this conversation. We will be diving into a topic that is generating raining a lot of excitement in the industry. And that is Auto Amal and the automation of the data science process But before we dig into to that. I'd love to hear how you got started working in Melanie. I it's a great question because I've been working with data for quite a while and I think roughly about five to ten years ago. It became apparent that the next chapter for anyone working with data has to we've itself so the AI world and the world of opportunity with AI is really really only limited by the amount of data. You have the the uniqueness of the day you have and access you have data And once you're able to connect those two worlds and a lot of things like predictions new insights new directions sort of come out of the woodwork. So seeing that opportunity imagining that potential has naturally led me to work with the. I was lucky. Enough to join the AZURE. Ai Group and does really three focus areas within that group. One of them is machine learning. How do we enable data scientists of those skills to operate through the machine learning life cycle starting from the data to the training registering the mouse to put them in productions in managing them a process? We call Emma Lops so just looking at that end to end and understanding understanding how we enable others to really go through that process in a responsible trusted in known way. There's been a super exciting journey so far and so did you. Do you come at this primarily from a data science perspective or research perspective engineering perspective. I I think one of the above or all of the above. You know I'm actually going to go with all of the above. I think it'd be remiss to think that if you're gonna hit it from a data science perspective live and you're trying to build a product. Yeah really looking to build the right set of products for people to use as they go through their journey. You'd you'd probably miss out on an aspect of it if you think about. The engineering perspective will probably end up with great. Infrared doesn't align with any of the data science. So you really you gotta think between the two worlds and how one empowers the other. You really gotta figure out where most data scientists ovo skills need to help. WanNa help are looking for tools and products and services on Azure to help them out. And I think that's the part I find and most compelling sort of figuring that out and then really going deep where you land right because if we end up a billing sticky. We're going to spend a whole lot of time with our the data signs customers data science internal teams and figure out. Well how should I look like but if you're building something like ultra mel that that's targeted not only at the deeper data scientists but also the deeper rooted data professionals. You WanNA spend some time with them and understand not only what they need but Kahad that applies to the world of data science. And what were you working on before Azzura. So before as R- a Microsoft I worked for a team in culture data retreated created the set of data platforms for our internal teams and prior to joining Microsoft. I worked in the marketing automation. Space Company called op Fai and again the unique assets. We were able to bring to the table as part of op. Find the world of marketing automation were always data-based. We're always sort of looking at the data assets marketers had instead. What else can we get out of it? Machine learning wasn't as prevalent at the time. But you could track back to a lot of what we did at that time. And how machine learning would have helped if it was used on such a general basis. Yeah one of the first Machine learning being use cases that I worked with were With folks that were doing trying to do like lead scoring and likelihood likelihood to buy propensity to buy types of use cases. I mean that's been going on for a really long time. So we're on a podcast so you can see me smiling but we did a lot out of a worker on building glow lead scoring okay and you ristic's and manual realistic sense of general us. Ticks and you're is that the customer could customize and today today you've seen that to really evolved to a place where there's a lot of machine learning behind I mean it's perfect for machine learning right you've got all data it's fresh it's coming. You know does insights sites. That are really hard to find out once you start slicing and dicing it by regions or by size of customers. It gets even more interesting. So the whole the makings for you're adding machine learning really make. You are getting pretty excited about various Nice Nice. You want to dive into talking about auto. I Mel this is probably for the level of excitement that and demand for Ah Auto Amal and enthusiasm That folks have for the topic not to mention the amount of confusion that there is for the topic. I probably not covered it nearly enough on the podcast. You know certainly when I think of when I think of Auto Amal there's a long kind of academic history behind the technical approaches that That drive it it. But it was really popularized For many You know with Google's cloud autumn L. Twenty eighteen and like before that they had this New York Times. Sometimes you know they had this PR win. That was like a New York Times article talking about how you know I was GonNa create itself and I think that contributed a lot to for lack of a better term in the space but then we see it. You know all over the place. There are other approaches. More focused on kind of citizen data data science. I love to just start with how you define Auto Amal and you know is is is your take on it as a space and you know it's role and importance that kind of thing I think I can. I really relate to many of the things things you touched on. So maybe I'll start and this is true for many things. We do Adra but definitely for Auto Mail on your point around academic roots Microsoft Microsoft. Has this division gold. Sr Microsoft Research. And it's really a set of researchers who look into leading edge topics and drive the world of research in different areas and that is when we first got in our team introduced to Oto Mel. So so they've been doing. Research of a subset of that team has been doing research around the ultimate meal area for quite a few years. They've been looking looking at it. There have been thinking. Well you know it started yes. I've heard centers AI. Making A. I don't know when he started getting into it. Like what does it me. And then it means to be honest. It means a lot of things to many people. It's quite normal. Used will be quite frank. There is no one standard industry the standard definition. That says. Here's what I can tell you what it is for us to continue what it is for our customers. I can tell you where we're seeing. It make a ton of impact and it comes to using machine learning capabilities in order to help you being the data scientists create machine capabilities in a more efficient in a more accurate in a more structured fashion.
"adra" Discussed on Stories Podcast
"Once upon a time in India on the dusty fringe of a bustling city five old men sat arguing they were friends had been for all their lives and arguing was their favorite pastime. It didn't much matter what they argued about. As long as there were two sides to take they'd split up and fight over them. If one old man said it was going to rain another would call him an old fool and say the sun would never be warmer. If one old man said Red Curry was best another another would call him an old fool and claim that green curry was tastier they had names but they never use them. They just call each other old man or old fool depending on if they were on the same side of the argument or not in. Truth they were all about the same age but that was just another thing. They fought over your sold that your bones are basically dust. How do you not fall over one old man would say to another but you're so old? You're blind line as a stone. You can't see your own nose in front of your face and so on it would go of course there was some truth to it. They were all blind their vision failing them one by one over the years. It wasn't usually a hindrance for them. It didn't get in the way of their arguing for instance but on this one particular day being blind caused a fight big as well big as an elephant make way they make way called a booming female voice. I must see the grain merchant. Adra is a hungry lady. The old men heard a thunderous stomping and a strange wet trumpeting. No Adra said the voice again you stay here. Elephants don't belong in the city. I'll be back soon. The old men heard the creek of a rope being tied off and then the footsteps of the elephants owner heading into the city eighty one she was gone. They began to speak to each other again. None of them had ever seen an elephant before they had heard of them of course but only in recent years had they been brought this far north they we were all incredibly curious and agreed. They'd like to know more of course being blind. They couldn't see Adra no matter how big she was no they had to rely on touch to understand how something looked when they traced the shape of something with their hands it was nearly as good as seeing and they wanted desperately to know what an elephant looked like all five got up and shuffled over to the elephant reaching out with careful hands. She stood happily in the sun content to let them pet her gently interesting said the first old man an elephant is like a snake long and thick and hard to shake. I bet it wants to coil and squeeze me like a boil.

Even if you don't say the wake word it notes. What we watch on television, it notes for how long we watch on TV. And then there's all those smart devices, the doorbell the security, camera and on and on it goes, but what I like is that Amazon is more up front about how it tracks. You and why? So you've all heard this term, cookie cookie is the little piece that attaches to your computer phone that will then track your performance whenever you go to their website. A lot of people get asked if they will accept the cookie, and they go, yes. Automatically Amazon tells you, if you don't accept the cookie, you can't use Amazon, because you need to let it remember what items you've shopped for in how to know the kind of products that you like, and it basically says, Amazon will not work, unless you give us your cookie. What you don't need to do is to allow Amazon to hit you with personalized ads b on selling merchandise. Apple has also forged a lucrative sideline in selling adds to manufacturers, who want to reach you all shopping.

Nobel economist Paul Romer says the path to tech privacy may be taxes
"Week. Google showed off lots of new privacy oriented, tools, and products and user agreements at its big developer conference Google. I o apple is marketing privacy Facebook as promising privacy. Eventually federal regulators are still trying to figure out privacy laws and regulations, but Nobel prize winning economist, Paul Romer says company promises and even regulations won't actually change anything because the ad supported business model is what's broken? He argued in the New York Times this week that the US should tax revenue from targeted advertising, we called Paul rumoured to talk more about this idea in quality assurance the segment where we take a deeper look at big tech story. He says companies need to creatively. Evolve their businesses boo ad model was very important it made possible. The emergence of Google and Facebook and supported open source software. So it was very valuable it a crucial point in time. But we've outlived the usefulness of this model we need to move. On what we're stuck in right now is a bad equilibrium. And we got us think creatively about how are we going to get back to the vision? And the optimism that many of us had when we first saw the potential of digital. Well, then tell me more about the creative solutions that they might come up with to change the business model one of the models. That works is a subscription model. People pay to have access to a music service to game supplier of this lots of workable subscription models. If you tax Adra eventually it'll be in the interest of these firms to develop subscription models. The other thing that is if you make that tax on the ad revenue. Progressive what happens is you're gonna end up with a version of the remember the marriage penalty onto p with income get married and their total tax Bill goes up with progressive taxation. We want a marriage penalty in the market because if two firms joined together, we want their total tax Bill to go up because we don't want more big firms would actually. Like to have lots more small ones. So really creative innovative firm that keeps you know, developing new products, it can just off independent firms get the value when it when it's been those off and keep the total tax Bill though by not letting any one of them get too big. There is I wonder what you there is. Also, an argument though, that subscription models are themselves kind of inherently regressive, and that increasingly actually we're finding that access to good information is almost based on your income level. And I wonder what what your responses to that? If this would put information services out of reach. I'm sorry. I just have trouble with this idea that these firms her in jeopardy tens of billion dollars for a relatively small number of people were doing this as a an effective policy for redistribution. Just I just don't think that that argument you passes the left. That's not what I'm arguing. I'm just saying that a lot of information is now stored within these platforms that people may no longer be able to access if they have to pay for it. But but look I mean who who really provided the world's information to everybody on earth Wikipedia. Right. And if you're asking what could we do to make the digital world work for people? You know, the Wikipedia model is great. It's a donation model a subscription model would work a combination of subscriptions and donations on all of those things are possible. This ad model is not helping the users and or they wouldn't be called users. And it's not helping the most vulnerable users. Either is the business model the problem here. Or is it the scale is that the size of these companies always both, but the point of progressive revenue tax is that you create incentives both for breakup, you can allies. The acquisitions and you encourage the development of models where the customers are customers. And they know what they're giving up and they can compare that with the services they get back. I'd rather live in a world where firms don't have these enormous incentives to spy on individuals. So if we had that at advertising model that didn't involve all of this, you know, deep surveillance of individuals. I'd be more comfortable with that. I still think a firm that's collecting revenue on that scale is probably not a healthy thing for a society where we want to have competition and free discourse. And you know, freedom to take unpopular

"It. Right in the center, and then maybe another quarter spoonful. We're going to create a little did it right in the center. Okay. Not a whole all the way to the bottom. Just the smallest little divaesque. Yeah. Just gently pushing the center out. Exactly. Right. And then from there, we're going to do because we're gonna take or chicken or ground chicken. We're gonna put. Yes, right in the center there like that. And then right after we're gonna take another smaller spoonful. And put it right on. So you're covering up that little chicken chicken Patty with with more this potato better. Yeah. Exactly. Right. So if you notice you're getting like this beautiful kind of. Crispy Brown Adra on the side. So this to me the smell that you're smelling right now. That's my childhood bike everything about that as much, you know, ground onion ground potato ground chicken, like chicken, fat unions and garlic and this would be like a holiday fluids. This would be like a Hannukah food. Yeah. Totally one hundred percent. And if you wanted to do it without meat, by the way, you can totally do this very same recipe without me. And and it would be just as good you just wouldn't have the and sometimes you'll run out of me. And basically what my mom's husband will do is. He just keeps cooking with a potato. And then he'll have some with meeting some without at this point. We're going to do a kind of move here where I'm going to turn the fire off the oil still hot. And we're gonna go to flip this. And what I do is. I take the pan and tilt the pan away from his and then what I'll do is. I'll flip it towards the part of the pen that has less oil. And it doesn't splash all over the place..

"Versus the laugh factory is like the comedy store is like a cool CD strip club where you can do lap dances on the customers where the security guard isn't hovering over your head. It's more rock and roll. Like the laugh factory is like your stripper. But you're like doing the lap dances on like a platform kind of clubs. Security guard like kind of hanging around like watching everything there's no touching. That's the laugh actor. I mean, I explain those places in like two music bands comedy stores like Motorhead, it's CD and gritty and Alan. Yes. And the laugh like the backstreet, boys. He's a nice club. Yeah. Improv is a little more rock and roll. Yeah. The laugh actor it's more like I was just attracted to it. I also lived right by it was just like the place. I saw every day. It's kind of it's does have an energy. It really does. Yeah. I've always wanted to be in there for the lap. Adra improv. Great. But just send about the names on the wall. You want your name to be on that wall? I want my name on that wall pay there some time. I mean, you know. Wait, so long actually worked out that it's on the front of the wall. Yeah. And you know, they need more chicks. Yeah. I know funny chicks. So you know, you're in a good spot people. You people have Stephen. So what's next for Chelsea? I've been writing ally. Just I'm trying to sell a show. So that's what I'm working on. And. And I also want to write on shows. I really love writing the most. That's like the number one thing that like speaks truest to me. So that and, you know, stand up at the store, and, you know, fucking Stephen like for a second time sometime this week, you know, all the same shit. I, you know, acting I. Wanna be in some shit and just acting stand upright and continuing that well before we leave. I wanna do a public service announcement for my fans who go to strip clubs or gentlemen's clubs, or you know, massage parlors, you know, there's there's because you see it on. What are the do's and don'ts of men when they're trying to work the stripper because I don't think most men realize strippers work in. Okay. If you're not if you don't have any money on you, if you don't want to spend money, if you're not gonna get the dance shut the fuck up. Okay. Because I can't tell you. How many times you'll waste time with someone trying to convince them to get a dance? And then they're like, they don't wanna do it. So don't even go. If you're like, it's so fucking knowing those guys who just waste time. They just sit there drinking. They don't wanna spend money. You know, you have to know when to walk away from the customer to. But that's like what? Because you don't know who has money who doesn't like what I mean. What does I to tell sale signs of this money? I just got to work for it a little bit. Or if a guy's there with a group is friends, and he's like he's paying he's paying. You know what I mean? Like, he he's not he's like laughing like like putting it on someone else. If he is like, I don't wanna dance right now. I'm just watching. People. You know, don't it's like when you're dating someone, and they're like, I don't wanna girlfriend and you're like, but maybe and then like five songs later five years later, you're single. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know what what are the things guys can like. You know, do that might make go in by themselves. Usually also you can count on dealing something the lone wolves.

"Welcome to the Schmidt list. The podcast for people dedicated to managing successful projects, developing impactful products and building engage teams. And now here's your host, Kirch mitt. Hello, everyone and welcome to episode forty, four. Well, technically, forty, four, forty, four episodes of the show. This is the one year anniversary of launching the show, and I wanted to take a moment to answer a lot of questions that people have asked me over the past year about how I do this show where the idea came from and what's next cell kind of split this up in three parts. So I'm gonna talk a little bit about the technical side of doing the show about creating content, and then I wanna talk about the things that I've learned and I have some special audio. I want to share with you later in the show. So I'll jump right into the technical side. One of the first mistakes I made it was a completely rookie move, which was. Was getting too much. I went overboard and got crazy mixer and microphones and all these different things. One of the main reasons why don't get me wrong if you want to start a podcast, all you need is a decent microphone computer to record on some headphones, but I specifically wanted my show to be an interview style show for reasons that that audio we'll talk about later. So the microphones I use are just regular old condenser microphones there. Yaar one Twenty-one hundreds. And then I use a ten mixer which allows me to do multi track recording. And that means basically, each microphone goes in its own track. So I can edit out weird stuff that happens in between from separate audio sources, which is nice for majority of the show of all recorded in one track, and it just took a lot longer to make some edits and believe me. I need to add it because. I say quite a bit, especially when I'm interviewing somebody and I know you guys don't wanna hear all that. The other thing is software garage band is what it use. I try to ton of different software by graduate was just super easy. I know it sounds basic, but it works great and does everything I needed to do. So moving off of the technical stuff for a minnow. One last thing I'll talk about is hosting I use hosting service called speaker speaker with an r. spreaker. They're pretty good hosting service. One of the reasons I like is because they have a really good in bed -able player, which works on the website and number of places, and that's been pretty good service. Overall, let's talk about creating content. If you're interested in starting your own show. The first thing you need to figure out who's your target audience, who are the people that are going to listen. And then I would also ask them talk to some of those people and ask them, what shows do they listen to? What shows do they like the point of doing this is just to start, don't wait around for somebody to give you permission. I in the beginning, I kind of went around. And told people I was doing a podcast and everybody's like that's great. But for some reason I was looking for somebody say, you totally do that. And nobody was saying that. And Finally, I got to the point where I just kind of had to force it and make it happen and have it start happening, and I'm super glad I did. I wish I would have started a long long time ago. So how do I get listeners? How do I get people to listen to the show? Honestly, it's one person at a time every time, networking or meeting with people. I always mentioned that I have a podcast. I share links social media to get the word out. But honestly, for the past year, it's been doing speaking events and talking about it. And then just when I'm networking and talking with people mentioning that, that's what I do, and I do this show. So if you start a show and you have twenty listeners out the gate, you're pretty lucky. So it takes a while to build an audience. So do not despair. I'm honestly telling you just get started and try it from the beginning. So thanks to this show. I've had a lot of amazing opportunities over the last year and one of them. That I'm super proud of is the key note that I did at the Adra conference for general mills back at the beginning of August at the event. I talked about why I started the show, so I have that audio. Thanks to the great people over a general mills shared the videos with me, and I took a clip of the audio out that I wanna play for you. Now this talks a little bit about where the Genesis and everything was for the show. So take a listen to that. And then I will see in the other side of that. But I want to share one other quick personal story with you. So I used to read a metric ton of leadership self help personal hacking and management books, but I wasn't growing in the way that I thought I would read these books, and then we try to apply these things and these things I learned and they wouldn't work. They wouldn't stick. Nothing would stick. Why wasn't it sticking? I felt like I was on the right road. I knew what the what the I wanted to be a leader, but it just wasn't getting me anywhere. But over time I realized that these books just
