"again smart technologies" Discussed on CCC Talks
"It's cold the experience deficit I mean it's the term that's behaviorally recognized as as again as it is a downside of bringing so much technology as it turns out as humans for us to process something we do need time we do need reflection. We do need Social Interaction if certain changes need to occur in by Creating shortcuts through immediate delivery through technology which seems to be more efficient on the size of speed and acceleration where actually creating deficits on the behavioral side and psychologically which of the downsides of which we do not yet exactly now but we already seen it in education significantly one we're bringing students in who are digital natives people coming in who've been educated in already digital age and there are some significant again deficits in what we would consider the full human experience so. I think we are learning to be living with technology because it's not an option anymore. And but we're learning also the downsides and we need to be more proactively addressing these types of deficits in understanding the impact. That technology will have long term nauseous short-term efficiencies that the business might be looking at. I think that's very important for listeners. Think about human deficit. It grows mortgage technology to try and solve their stop. Deficit probably grows because you've unequal balance now too much technology not enough of the human the human element and a common theme that relates to this. That we've out on a lot of these These sessions he's talks is no recognition that we've gone from highly manufacturing industries into service industries which are now being or moving into the knowledge industry. That seems to be where we are in a completely different thing to say may moving from manufacturing to services required people to do differently act differently be differently and be educated differently and have different technologies. I think that's happening from the services in the street into this knowledge industry and it's not a direct shift that you immediately stop one on. Start the other one of those questions. I have for you while businesses might be recognizing vest with the work. Say That you do and and what you're teaching is. Do you think the individuals the humans themselves individuals in jobs. You think they recognize any of this. How significant this might be on them or are they unaware of it. I mean it depends you know humans a different right So it really depends. Most most of us are reactive to these types of changes. That's what creates it's creating a lot of stress because people are unprepared. It happens to them only. Then to your point they become aware I think what we need to be doing in this is where I think. A lot of focus in a mine field right. Now is trying to be predictive That area that's growing really fast. And we'll also teach on in. Our Program is workforce planning understanding of the rate of obsolescence of skills in the jobs level. We're not talking about jobs with talking. Where breaking down jobs into skills because every job can there's no I mean the category of jobs is going your way We need to understand what's involved. People a much bigger than jobs right watson all kinds of skills both soft and hard skills are needed in an we in. What's interesting about what's happening now? It's not all skills at once. Go Away we only notice how we talk about. It's kind of mechanically. They were jobs now their jobs but it's much more subtle. These in these changes that occur. Not only at the job level again. That's too that's too big. An happens overnight in nets edits reactive. But it's a gradual transition. Parts of jobs are being automated and so their environment we're going to be living in Is GonNA BE AMENDED? You know? Every job is going to be melted with technology so pretty much no one is going to be immune to these types of transitions and so where we are now because again I like to. I like my role of being on the solution side of these types of issues that are so central to the future of our society is to figure out how we can be more predictive about these types of changes happening And how we could be more proactive in creating educational pathways in learning pathways Have necessarily education with capital E. Win that they're learning in the flow work. Reskilling all of these types of things that it technology again is helping us be more efficient in acquiring a new skills entrance thing but the trick here to what you meet. Just ask is to go from reactive to proactive in. Where in asks where you know Again Smart Technologies I- analytics helping us to to make that shift if we're predict if we have predictive about it in prescriptive around educational pathways in put resources behind it a knowledge. I think we're going to eliminate a lot of pain in a lot of disruption that we're experiencing now because now and now it's happening because again we are kind of waiting until it happens in too late. It's always too late so is too late. You mentioned something that I think He said I saw about it. And we're bigger jobs. We do when I think one of the challenges that has been found. Is that a lot of people self identify with the jobs that they do. They attach a lot of. I think self worth to that job and the job that they do a now that we're in this world of absolute change. It is happening quicker faster than change of has ever happened before I think. That's impacting these in the conversations. I've been having with organizations as well. I can see that having an impact on everybody in the organization from decision makers right down to the the the lower levels in an organization that even the people that say empower are actually struggling to get to grips with. What's changing. How's it going to affect me? Never mind the rest of the staff here. So there's a bit of Cell Survival. I think For people because of the way they attach that everybody but some people will attack sell for us to the job that they do based on the role and position that the half. I think that being challenged as well at the moments That's what we might response to. This will be He. Full are attached to work. You know people are the work. Is You know oxygen food for humans. So in that's different from jobs in for as long as we understand that and how new in create opportunities for people to be engaged socially and work. That is going to be you know. That's how we need to be a reframing the whole conversation about jobs because it's not about jobs jobs are gonNA come and go We've seen in the past. Yeah Yeah So. We are hard wired to work just VIP productive to be socially connected with people in achieve outcomes. We we are you know somewhat. You know maybe competitive At some level different degrees of competitive but a lot of the whole range of human emotion is associated with work. And we talk about the dignity he'll work in and I think what's happening is if people have been trained in such a lenient way in their associated with a job that's where the that's where the fragility of this type of concept house. That's where it breaks down. You know if I'm only thinking on myself as a coal mine you know I see. I see the shelf life of that profession as very narrow very shore. Yes so and that's what you know. The politicians obviously take advantage of it. They're gonNA save you know if I want to win this population i. I'm going to put the coal miners back into the coalmine. And that's not how these types of issues need to be resolved. What you need is to give people opportunity to work. You have to find what they would be good at how they the skills this is. Where again the Union of measures skill? What other Equivalent skills that we could be. You know Draining amend of that will be relevant to the next economy and it turns out there are quite a few A few skills out there and again if you develop the ability with helpless technology etc to identify you know the kind of the strengths of people etc in develop those skills in them create work environments for them where they can be deployed. This is why when when people lose jobs we always tell them volunteer. Don't don't just isolate yourself For that job when you volunteer you actually are continuing to develop yourself in in in your participating in the flow or can you participating in society. So that's the way we need to be thinking about it. That's fantastic. That's really good. One of the things. We did a recent survey report from the CCC the Global Digital Skills Survey one of the critical findings that we got from that survey was that today are requiring are acquiring sorry requiring people are looking for people to have the ability to acquire skills acquired him quickly unusual skills as opposed to looking for people who have degrees and other types of You know career spanning knowledge or experience that seems to be moving along this trajectory in the fourth Lucia Revolution. That one of the key things are looking for is an ability for people to learn and relearn. Quickly on reapply regardless of you. You know what they've had in the past always reminds me of this phrase walk got us here will not keep us here and I think that is so relevant. Today that you're not going to get a forty year career from the degree you had twenty years ago in today's you just won't exist because the jobs are changing skill requirement. Everything's changing so fast as you said. We see a lot on these talks. A lot of 'em automation coming. True technology automating half of. Somebody's job so you've got to be able to acquire new skills and transition on change trout your career. What you think is the scale in itself that people need to have some people say it's more difficult for the older cohorts Sunday younger. I'm not convinced out. I think it's probably a human trait. Are you able to learn and relearn as opposed to how old are you on? Should younger people learn better? I don't think that that's how it works. What am I think that's part of a what's happening on that phrase what got us here will not keep us here. I think ever is ever so relevant as part of that on it you talk about this new world of work. Which is what we're in today spoken about. I'll just quote here. What we need most is a practical guide to brave. New World of work. Talent CONNECTS A to employment wherever and whenever it finds the best fit. Can you elaborate? I think that that's a fantastic phrase. We're GONNA write about that in the blog but can you explain that in a little bit more detail where we're coming from You know I. I wanted to respond to your your first question about education in learning race Because I think it's really.
How AI Will Impact the Future of Digital Marketing | Ep.
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm meal and today we're going to talk about how I or artificial intelligence will impact the future of digital marketing. So let's preface this a little bit. A obviously is artificial intelligence. A lot of people are talking about machine learning. If you look at the biggest companies in the world right now you look at the googles the Amazons of the world the facebooks of the world all these companies. They're putting a ton of money into artificial intelligence because it is basically the future I think it is the final frontier of one of the most important. If not the most important invention humankind comes up with a WHO knows what's going to happen afterwards. You look at. We talked about Softbank Their Vision Fund. Masa son the founder of it. His whole thesis was to invest in companies that are centered around a now. I don't know if we work sitting around. Ai He claims it is but that remains to be seen right so if all these big companies all these smart people even the apples of the world are putting money into the question is. How's it going to impact the future of digital marketing? So Neil do you WANNA kick it off. Yes so I think about the world now. You're no longer Brosnan Internet and buying just off of your desktop computer laptop there's ipads now there's tablets there's mobile devices. There's voiced devices. Heck even rages are now starting to have smart technology built in same with Evans and stoves and all these types of things like toasters. You're gonNA start seeing integrated more and more right. Your car's already you're starting to have It's GonNa continue increasing over and over after time. And that's why Eric and I are really big in the Omni channel approach. But what you're gonNA start seeing when it comes to is. Your Fridge will do things I tell you that you're almost out of milk. And you get one brand but if you decide to switch other brand they'll send you a free sample arrive to your house in less than an hour through Amazon. And from there you'll be a happy camper new company would have got you as a customer in the leaving stats on data. Like seventy three percent of the people who switch enjoy drinking this brand and on top of that it is eighty three percent cheaper. You get what I mean like doing things like that. That's where you're going to start seeing artificial intelligence kick in. It's going to be all big data. How can computer it and give you recommendations based on what they know that you would like to simplify. I think some people tend to get scared when it's like artificial intelligence such a big word but at the end of the what's happening is you have computers basically looking at large data sets and they're analyzing it and they're they're giving you insights from it or maybe they're acting on insight sometimes so as an example. Ai Now where it can scan your body and and really detect you know if you might potentially have your risk for cancer and you know what kind in the future and there's also. This really reason actually new antibiotic that was developed from a and they were just looking over a hundred million data points right and they're just like at that point if it's so many data points human beings not really going to be able to get through that so you want to rely on a machine and the easiest way to look at. This is if you look at. This is a very simple way. You look a calculator you as a human being. Maybe you can do. Math decently well but a calculator forced to kind of do like a repetitive task. You know it's going to do it better than you. So that's basically what it is right. We've been seeing a lot of things get improved over time. That don't need that. Frankly use machines and they're better than human being so. How does this apply to digital marketing? What you WANNA look at ads. Smart bidding where a lot of people right in. There's a lot of paid media managers there. They're managing the bid on their own and in some cases are getting assistance from Google or facebook's kind of a and are saying hey maybe should be doing this. And then you know maybe you should be decreasing your bid cost here. You're losing too much money here. So there's a lot of insights that are going on what's going to happen in the future. I believe is that kind of authorization. Work is going to go for the machines and then the humans are going to be left to basically come up with more creative ideas and you know they don't have to do kind of the manual work around that the other thing you'll start seeing who is air will start leveraging database on what you like as well as your friends like to end up coming up with ideas on what you should see products and services because there's so much data that now. These companies have based off of Frederick described facebook. At how much data they know about you based on your friends so these are all things that you're going to start seeing integrated with marketing and a in the future. The real question is one. Is this all GonNa end up happening? I think Neil and we look at both of our. We have multiple products on the on the click flow side. At least you know. We're going to be leveraging. A lot of the data says that we haven't been able to tell people. Hey you should be writing this type of content should be adding these hypoc words. You don't want to do it for you. You should be reading this title tag dispatch description so I think a lot of marketing is going to be done for you by machines in the future because a lot of the people I mean they just need you know. They're they're short on resources that they need things done for you and I think you know you look at Ai. Leveraging data sets and saying hey. You should be doing this and we'll just do it for you. I think that's where you build leverage for the long term and that's why I think you know again. It sounds scary but AI. There's a lot of out of the box solutions. It doesn't mean it's not hard to do but it makes it a lot easier to execute on kind of what your vision might be so I recommend looking at Google's tensor flow and there's other solutions out there.
AI vs. Coronavirus: How artificial intelligence is now helping in the fight against COVID-19
"With you our special guest tonight Cyrus a parcel of the A. I. organization happens to be a security professional which specialties include emerging threats anti terrorism human organ trafficking smart technology bio digital programming artificial intelligence and social media manipulation and there's lots of that he is the author of a number of books including his most recent which is artificial intelligence danger to humanity and he has brought a massive lawsuit to the front steps of the tech giant's Cyrus welcome to the program looking forward to this thank you George thank you for having me on what a time for you to be on all my gosh I mean you've been hearing the stories of these corona virus scares what's your take on this because you some more touch on it in a very interesting way in your book artificial intelligence well I I turn to the bio disease that that potentially hazardous to the entire human race and also connect to the possibility that the Chinese government no labs working with community is in other animals trying to make human stem cells with with animals animation from irises so this is one of the threats I put in initially I investigated over one thousand artificial intelligence biometric by engineering cybernetics and company that relate to robotics and five G. had bought five hundred what Chinese companies station out of time but had that had platforms and and have offices all over the world can US six hundred US or western companies which many concluded of American companies and European companies and some companies that go around Australia New Zealand I concluded my first book published it was called the action China and the weaponization of a box of five G. which is actually in that it was in this book artificial intelligence to Mandy I concluded that the world's citizens are in danger view China's big tech all world citizens and in stages not just in one shot but in stages suits by engineering cybernetics they I. threats and mainly walk away so far away is your gas probably know they have more than three billion people servicing all around one hundred seventy countries there and they were attempting to take over the world and still did a I. systems digital infrastructure quickness five G. system so you have full control over China the Far East you have the Middle East you have Africa and then you know Europe and you would have America's well if we did make some initiatives past two three years so in initial phase it would have been total surveillance and maybe in or million despotic dictatorship but then what all the misuse of Hey I and then this lab experiments they do that by engineering cybernetics that in itself threatens all the world citizens so the guilty parties a train coming through gene that being said there's negligence and and misuse whether big tech companies and one of the founders CEOs so I've been trying to get the word out for six or seven months I got a few networks I really appreciate you having me on and what time yes my gosh absolutely and in China are they is devious has a lot of people think because Cyrus more more so than so I I lived in China for almost a year in the year two thousand I live in the mountains with five remarks and I got to know the Chinese people when I went to the city's not have friends I have to have a network of Chinese coast to coast around the entire world and I I probably have maybe fourteen hundred numbers in my phone and he's a good one and also meet look we grew up in communist China in nineteen forty nine it took over the country the massacre a lot of people intellectuals and scholars detective of the property owners to talk everyone and they put them in camps and during the course of their history of seven years it's been a a process of rape murder conjugation caps and setting up that the pope or the communist regime and the people were deprived of all ethics and morality and there are tough to struggle so we have a system like that is controlled by one dictatorship which the pork barrel and you have one point five billion people fighting for that very limited resources limited jobs you have to dissect a jungle psych wards do you have to basically be a person become a professional liar you have to be good at sections and beans devious and the Chinese government dear dear dear regime and their leaders right shrewdly DDS and shrews screaming clever they can put one past the smartest intelligence agents we have but now they've been catching up the past few years has been a lot of arrests in the U. S. and so we're making a change but unfortunately it was a little bit too late in the summer cars as as everyone has seen the moment it seems iris that their government seems geared to all kinds of technology that would infringe on our rights spy on us and do all kinds of things in the end by reading your book artificial intelligence dangers to humanity I got that in a big way that that's what the Chinese are doing correct so do something so I put in the future that can happen the five G. is not built for human beings people don't know that it's made for
Hack a bulb? Yes!
"Can you have a light bulb. Well yeah if it's smart. I'm Jefferson Graham. This is talking tech and let me tell you all about it. Researchers for a security firm named checkpoint decided to have some fun and see how easy it would be to hack into one of the Philips Hue Smart Bulbs. The answer really easy. The Hue lights are very popular popular with folks who like to ask Alexa. Turn their lights on and off requests the Google assistant or Siri to change the color of the lights. Hence Hugh the the researchers hacked right into the bulb and thus got control of someone's Internet network. Checkpoint went to Phillips and told him other findings and Phillips responded ended by closing up the whole but as checkpoint told me what other less well-financed bulb manufacturers. How easy would it be to hack into them. Probably really simple so how to protect yourself. The sad news is that if you want smart technology you open yourself up to a hat because anything that's connected can be tapped into just ask owners of ring doorbells but there is a complicated way to protect yourself. You'll need to go nerdy on your Internet. Router many many newer models let you break the network up into separate entities. So have the computer network on one side and the smart products another that way. A bulb doorbell could hack hypothetically without anyone tapping into your computer. And that's living there.
North ending production of current Focals smart glasses to focus on Focals 2.0
"Okay. So if few are really big into wearables and you might know about smart glasses there are a few iterations out there Ones that are not out yet and one in particular that we're going to talk about in a second doc in that is pre prevalent the focus by north Just recently I just a few people in New York hanging out with hallway and talking about the hallway gentle monster glasses So that's another form of wearables that we're starting to see more and more often but focuses by north seems to be one of the most storied products in this category. And for good reason it's one of the only ones that actually does a visual based wearable smart technology so David of Andhra Authority and myself we actually got fitted focus four focus by north and we both are still trying to get our four reviews out on them It's just been a really busy time But we went through the whole experience of actually going to one of their stores getting fitted for getting that three D. scan done And then we got our actual focus by north and we've been using them for the last couple of months on and off But this past week focus by north are actually out of production the first at least because north is going to start making version that is actually slimmer smaller sleeker and probably more accessible to a a lot of people so I brought David a melon and we talked about focus by north as we are to people who've actually used these glasses on the regular so it seems the hype train is is officially rolling again now only because this past week we saw that the findings on the way but apparently there's finally going to be not finally but there's going to be a oh no A. V. Two of these here thanks to extend all right so you're wearing yours I'm opting for my usual glasses just for it just for the sake of illustrating what these vocals look like in the box so yeah they're kind of big but I think the reason why we're so excited for them is because we're GonNa get a slimmer version. What has your experience been like what you're wanting them right now? They look good on you. I mean honestly we got them fitted at the dam so like number number one. This fulfilled a fantasy. I had where I've always wanted to wear glasses and I actually went to get my eyes checked a couple weeks ago just because I was like I haven't done this fifteen years and maybe I'll get to wear glasses. I have perfect vision. These are awesome for me because like they give me an excuse fused to her glasses fair and there's nice accessory overall. I think my least favorite thing with them is that they they have to be pretty specifically position on your face now. Luckily in a more recent immigration the version we got because they change these constantly making them they made these back parts bendable. Apparently these didn't used to be malleable. It's it's really funny that you mention that because I still use my little glasses last act. See this is the thing I'm the. I'm the one who actually needs glass. So that's why I was excited to get these because not only am I going to be using an item that literally benefits me every single day but but now they're smart so you can see these prescription glasses. So I have a few different pairs of glasses including the focus by north. I also have the boasts frames which which I do want to do a video to. Yeah I want to video on them on my channel as well And then I also have another one that has like bone conduction. But they're definitely not that great to be honest But yes the little hack that I do now see. Unlike new ones are actually in fold like traditional glasses really the photos. I saw a graphic but it was open. There's two photos. There's one where it's closed and thin enough for they actually can do this okay. That's dope that's useful. I'm so excited. This is my a little hack for anybody out there. That wants to make sure that the glasses don't move at all and this is really useful for heavy glasses like these smart glasses. These are called coupons. Yeah they're really hooks. Take Me Yeah I highly recommend them honestly. Yeah all right so I guess my question here is in your experience and I'll share mine and a little bit did did did focus or rather north. Prove that smart. I wear because we're starting to see more. I think some of our friends were actually taking a look at hallways Gentle Monster Glasses cool. Look look so cool. It's not anyway Yeah you know I have to give them a ton of credit Because I was so sad when Google glass didn't work out because the future smart I wear was so exciting for me. I remember almost spending literally more money that had at the time in college to buy a pair of of Goo glass
Microsoft's Win, Facebook's New News, SALTy About Taxes
"There may very well be lawsuits about this there may be depositions about this there may be all sorts of litigation so we're going to see what happens they can do it you can say whatever you want on your facebook posting and they can't police that but if they're accepting money for it they should probably be held to stand for that it's it's advertised it's an advertisement are knocked does that change anything meaning if I if I was running for for mayor of New York and I started just posting things that were blatantly look I think I think that's a tougher situation to try and assess that's where you can make the claim that you are simply posting board in the things get up but for anything you're accepting ads for why aren't you held the same standard as other broadcasters would would would naturally be for that you're accepting advertising so there is some interaction accepting money whether you laugh at about over the big bad wolf lung capacity legend and Bacon and easiest at six there's some that you really can't repeat on here I just saw one for for Ted Bundy but they're they how many are there are literally thousands of these people went on surprised on twitter tie I missed it I'm on a different version twitter than you are and the New York Times reports that Boeing help to craft the law late last year that undercuts the government's role in approving the design of new airplanes report says that the company and its allies shaped the language of the legislation to their liking overcoming criticism from regulators including the FAA mummers is going to be testifying this week so so he's going to be having to to answer a lot of these it is well the whole idea of self regulation which is a huge part of what's happened in the airline industry is fascinating and by the way not just happening I discovered because look into this weekend that's happening the United States a lot of this is because Airbus and what's happening in Europe is following the same similar similar approach understand the argument that there may not be qualified people in the government to sign off on some of these things but it it argues for changes structure I if Boeing or Airbus is going to pay for it they should ultimately answer to the laters not and you also had members of the writing letters saying this is not the way to do it right right well I think the biggest question this is even if the government has issues what safety this gives the manufacturers upper hand and this particular legislation and the weekend at the box office joker reclaim the one spot eighteen point nine million North American ticket sales it had been pushed out of the top spot last week by Disney's malefic mistress of evil jokers now the most successful R. rated movie ever with the global take eight hundred forty nine million dollars you from Manhattan into the stairs in Brooklyn that everyone is going and take them Celsius where he does some kind of weird scary I've not seen George people that are yeah exactly yes I can imagine how many people taking taking shots so so far so good with this scary sick movie right I mean he's very talented that that guys are wiped out but he's right but he's very very very tone eh wacked up about the talent part but the stairs are in the Wadden Brooklyn let's go next unsquashed Odd Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson has new hope for low income homebuyers we're back after this what kind of Tech Company does the world needs today one that applies smart technologies at scale with purpose and expertise not just for some but for all with a I blockchain and quantum technology IBM IS PARTNERING WITH CLIENTS TO DEVELOP SMART scalable technologies that help businesses worked better together. let's expect more from technology let's put smart to work visit.

We're getting a glimpse into ikea's ever-broadening future. The mammoth retailers diving deeply into the internet of things it had already launched smart lights twenty twelve last year it began offering sonos speakers designed to look like bookshelves lamp basis now a new digital technology analogy division called home smart will sell those products and more with about a billion shoppers roaming. It's maze like hallways. Every year i ki- is well positioned to capitalize capitalize on our growing fascination with smart home technology market researcher i._d.

CBS News poll reveals what viewers want to hear at State of the Union
"I want to talk about the state of the union. But apparently that that's too much for somebody of your delegates years so tonight. Yes, the state of the union trivia question is this the president's third or second state of the union must be a third trick question. The first one was given when he was giving a joint speech to the joint session of congress. In other words, when you're in office for nine days, they don't you do a state of the union yet because you're just kind of find in the bathroom. So this is the second which is hard around here. On the way here. It's amaz- W O R in this. I heart media. No question about it. But I mean, obviously, these things they get a lot of hype. All right there. They're carried by something like thirteen or fourteen stations networks, right? Probably will get anywhere between. I think forty five million watched last year probably a trickle down a little bit. I don't think by much though, it usually does year after year after the first one, but still forty million people much less. Probably everything's much less suitable had ninety eight million viewers. Oh, that's horrible. And then you realize it's nine. Absolutely. And and the number one thing, I think is a that people will be watching lease is will Democrats behave themselves, and by that, you know, obviously, they don't like this president very much polls show that they that that their constituents want President Trump impeached. Not after the mullahs report. Right. Not after anything like that. They want him impeach now by seventy eight percent margin. This according to Gallup, all right. So by booing him or by not exactly showing any sort of respect. I think they think that will play well with their base. But I think what we got to start doing. Maybe you'll agree with me it stopped thinking to the base so much right and start thinking of in other words, forty percent of people in this country will will vote for Donald Trump. No matter what forty will vote against him. No better much that twenty in the middle. You've got to be thinking. Talk. Baby that forty percent could be away by whatever's in that Muller report, if the mullahs report is so bad. Stinky cheese that it could chip away at that forty percent. But I agree that that that forty percent Israel is there it would be have to be absolute collusion between literally a phone call between Trump and Putin saying, hey, give me the WikiLeaks WikiLeaks, and I don't think we're going to see that can you fix ethic. Yeah. We would have already had that everything weeks. And we would have heard something by now. So I think it'll be something. That's. We'll have some guilty pleas from Manafort, obviously, but they do Flynn, right? And it'll be stuff that sketchy, but nothing to do with collusion. And I think it'll be we we move on. Apparently that that reports coming out less than a month, according to we'll talk some more about X. I have some thoughts on that as well. But anyway, so let's let's say so we start with that. Where you've got you've got the hardcore base, and then you've looked at. And then you've got the dams on the other side, but they're there. This is feeling so much anger between both sides listening now to you know, this state of the union, it's gonna be Maxine Waters, for example. She's telling people, you know, turn off your TV's watch. Yeah. Boycott, and I'm thinking, wow. You know, we want to be educated. Right. We want to know what our president is saying to us whether we agree or disagree because I might really disagree with a lot of points that our president is going to make to us tonight. But I want to be educated about what he says. So then I can go out, and I can say, you know, have a conversation with you konczal. I could say, you know, I disagree with you or Trump on this point and go Mark down with you. And have a have an intellectual discussion with you about them. If if I tune something out, how am I ever going to have that? Discussion with you. How am I ever going to discuss the facts if I just tune you out, it's childish, right? And and child is like anything else in life. You just tuned that person out Chuck Schumer already spoke, basically, saying, we're not we shouldn't listen to this president there because what they're what the White House is trying to say, look, we're going to try to strike a tone of bipartisanship that that you know, that we look we had this government shutdown. The both sides were heard, and now, let's let's work at healing and find places we can work together like infrastructure, for instance. Right. Which always seems like a pretty easy place to talk. That's really a democratic idea. That's government spending. That's been a Trump thing in his support. And and and and you know, and I agree with this, by the way, that's the unifying message just things are crumbling, and we're going to invest somewhere. Let's hear. Just look around the indeed and Schumer's already rejecting it saying, we shouldn't listen to this president just just like Maxine Waters, and then you have Kamala Harris, the Senator who's running for president at a California. She's doing what's called a pre Buttle. Right. And that sounds like a bad movie skinny max at three o'clock in the morning, but she's doing the pre Buttle, and that's at seven forty five before the state of the union before she knows what the president's going to say. And then of course, you have Stacey Abrams doing the pulse rebuttal, which which is fine. But it just seems like everybody's going into this just like they have with everything else over the last two years in their safe spaces tribalism rules, and we're not gonna listener budget anyway because we're already in a presidential election season. We are. But I don't like I don't like the idea boycotting. I don't like doing that. But let's talk about what he's where's he going to go? He's going to go. The big the wall is the big thing. Do you think do you think he's gonna drop this whole big thing about nationally emergency I- Bloomberg? Is reporting that he will not well, he'll probably broach it he's not going to declare it. Right. Yeah. Can't do it before the negotiations are over. But that that will not be said tonight. You got some in the presence party, like Mitch McConnell, for instance, are saying, you know, that this probably is not a good idea. Exactly. So I mean, we talked to know are often last night from MSNBC a political commentator conservative. And he says just take everything that the that the Democrats are offering right now, and that that would be the better way to go. Yeah. Yeah. Actually said that that Trump would come out ahead. If he did that right? Embrace him more, the smart technology, even President Trump said today hedge a little bit. You said, you know, what we'll build a human wall. In other words, maybe troops to the border. So look as long as it works as long as you can deter people coming into this country illegally. My position is I know it's a semantic thing with the wall and the symbolism of it. But as long as it's works. Yeah. But the problem is though, he President Trump still has to be able to go and say to his the people that voted for him. Look, I I gave you what I promised you. I built you the wall. And as a little aside, I was reminding you this yesterday. Hey. We're going to have Mexico pay for it. We have to Mexico pay for it. Remember, it's not supposed to be us paying for member. I mean, I'm going to keep coming back on that. Because I don't forget that his e promised that the president has said because of the better deal that was struck with with Mexico and Canada, the new NAFTA deal that therefore the money from that helps supply it's not the money. All right. We have a four trillion dollar budget. It's five billion gazillion and have lots of deficits to sell please. But the five billion in all that much. Wouldn't you guys? It's not the money. It's not it's like a lot of billion out of four trillion. In a contextual matter is not all that much as one tenth of one percent less than one percent. Anyway. What some people will be watching tonight. They'll people like the political theory as well lis. Right. Maybe they're not there to listen to the policy or the speech or the see the reaction of Democrats. But you know, there are bet you can place now because you can place bets everywhere. Yeah. You could actually wager on what's going to happen at the state of the union, for instance, what do you think the president will mention I in his remarks is according to bet DS IRA, it's called prop pets. Okay. Yes. Well, he mentioned I all right. The vice president the Senate majority leader members of congress, my fellow Americans first lady or speaker of the house those words have to come out of his word now. Yeah. Well, if he mentioned his his my fellow Americans, he should convention. I I would think so. Right. If you wanna strike bipartisanship. Okay. That one hundred dollars on that you'd win three hundred. So. Lampley, you gotta get like, you gotta go to jersey apparently jersey, you can't bet New York. You have to literally take the path over hold your phone in the air show. You're in New Jersey by your locator. And then you could put that in from there. Sounds hard. Yeah. It's it's not convenient for New Yorkers. But there's another story for another time. All right. Another question. Another bet you push. President trump. Yeah. The interrupted by something other than applause. Other than applaud that a plot. Can that be what? Yeah. Exactly. Applause screaming hawk. No, I'm thinking. Flying paper paper like little like throw the paper. Make a sound though. I think they're talking about booze. Oh, I would I would think like rolled up paper like, you know, when you in in your grade school, and you had the little paper wads them, you know. Yes. That gets you four fifty back in two hundred dollar bet. No, however, saying he won't be interrupted by anything other than applause is at minus eight hundred. No. I think he'll be booed. It happened. It happened with President Obama with Joe Wilson. Call calling him a liar. Yes. That's right. Remember that that kind of behavior while the partisans would love it, right? Like, you showed them so poorly. And it's time when mcchord was just talking about this. You know interview that he did yesterday. I think it was with CBS early show. It's it's just like you don't it's time about civility. We've really I mean. I know it sounds cliche. Did I know it sounds so close? So sounds phony coming from him considering the way he treated Br Cavanaugh during those hearings civility, really all right? Okay. So I'm just taking the latest example, but come on we really are trying to be more civil now. So the the party. I mean, even if you guys don't believe it. Okay. Be it. I mean fake it till you make it right? Was was my saying got me through college. How many standing ovations or something? President Trump received the over under sixty nine and a half meaning received more than sixty nine and a half or less than sixty nine and a half standing ovation. It's exactly even. So what what the heck does. That mean? It's it's can't decide it's one number. It goes over that number or under sixteen. That's what he'll get. No. Yeah. You understand that? That's the bar sixty nine gymnastics. All right there. He gets more than sixty nine and a half or less than sixty nine and a half. What do you got half? The it's impossible because there isn't a half of was registering is. You never played high low with cards. No, no, that's not registered. You think? He'll get seventy. Oh. I
