Why are health authorities still struggling to communicate?
"I'm helter for teigen. Tayla and opposition journalists daughter. Norman swan tuesday the first of december and this time a year ago there was a virus circulating in hubei province just starting to reported probably sprayed from mid-november and things are just gathering pace under the radar one year ago. We'll have to deep dive into the early days of the virus. But not today norman. Okay hold myself back well. The last couple of days have been a role ride again in adelaide. Norman we've heard about a man who was out and about with covid and there were question marks about whether he should have been an isolation or not and the communication seems a bit messy. And it's been a bit hard to know what he was expected to do. Or whether he understood what he was expected to do. And even now i can't really make sense of what he was expected to do whether he knew it or not. How do we make sense of these sorts of things and if we can't communicate it well then. How do we know that people actually know what to do. Yeah i think what you're seeing here is an early forgetfulness. If you like of the key message from this pandemic throughout deploy doesn't matter really what country you're in is that if you've got consistent messaging from the leadership in other words political leadership and your public health dealership then people trust that and the follow it and hopefully that advice is solid and australia by large. It has been solid. So that from prime minister to brandon murphy and from dana andrews and brett sutton and alan chang and so on so in other words. You've you've had your good synchrony. We've had very policies in australia in terms of lockdown okay. They've been controversial. But communication has been fairly consistent now in toria the data looked they were transparent but the actually weren't that transparent sometimes very hard for us to make sense of what they were actually saying. And i think that reflected robin name being deliberately obscure. It just reflected the fact that they're contact tracing was in a bit of a mess and therefore the really have good data to pass on. So now you've got this situation and it's very important to remember this because support for the next pandemic important if the coronavirus comes back in australia. Such as you've had in south australia is that surfaced jones behaviorally well differently. They've come forward to be tested however a wobble like this does create a problem for community understanding because the temptation here of course is to victim blame. Oh there's this guy and he's out in a boat and probably even imply that yesterday on corona cast. He's been out of the boat. What a decayed during this and so on and so forth it turns out. He's actually behave quite well. And if there was confusion over communication that confusion has been all levels the understanding. We seem to have got yesterday. Was that he in fact was a casual. Contact was told to wait until he was tested. He was tested. And i said we got the result. The result was negative so he wasn't in quarantine and then he was told to get another test at eleven days which apparently was positive and it was while he was positive that he was out in a boat. I'm not sure that the nudity was positive but he was out in about roundabout that period of time. So it's just another example where you're creating danger when you're not sure of your facts and and you jump in people us we jump into and but we are assuming that the information is accurate. Not making any excuses about this is just another lesson that how the authorities communicate is essential to the control of the pandemic and to this one. Because it's not over yet

Matt Nagy: Bears have soul searching to do
"A few too many for bears head coach Man Negative Some point time You just gotta say enough's enough and Um, you know, we now are at that point where enough is enough. And it's time for us to go out on the football field, perform and get a win to get back on track. Snaky here on WBBM earlier this morning with a message that it already hit the years of receiver Alan Robinson, Not long after last night's 41 25 bears lost in Green Bay. There's no motivation guaranteed. We know what's in front of us. So okay. I mean, that's all the motivation. I mean, bears were still in contention for a playoff spot. But the Packer lost showed they have work to do to be contenders for more than that. Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay offense took advantage of an injured Akeem Hicks to throw for four touchdowns, run for 182 yards and total and keep the ball for more than 21 of the 1st 30 minutes and over 37 minutes in all Event. Mr Risky, never developed a rhythm in his return to the starting QB spot. He threw three touchdowns too late, also turned the ball over three times. Five games left his,
SEOs Driving Impact Outside Of SEO
"Tyson allen. Happy friday and welcome to the end of the road here at search insights week on the voice. Search podcast friday feeling. Good thanks for having us then tyson. You look like you're dragging your way of the finish line allen you look like you're just getting started getting warmed up. We're a start with you. Hey look we talked about ways. That organizations can improve their data driven decision making using search data. It's large it's unbiased. Its international and it can be mapped with your other data but look you need an internal sponsor to make sure that people understand the power of this search data. Why aren't there more. Seo's that are standing up. And saying i can answer these high level questions executive team why are they just being pigeonholed to focus on keywords. There's a latin pag in that question. And i think there's multiple that were having going into an organization when we're first establishing a relationship. I think number one. I do think as ios absolutely want to have these conversations. I think from my perspective. This isn't opinion i think. Seo is still a rather till the young industry. I still think there's a lot to learn a lot to educate across not only the marketing space but across the business space. When it comes as he. Oh i would argue that when you think about as the oh when you think about being a business major myself and having gone through the master's program excetera how many experts really out there in the seo space. I think that's a really good question to ask. There's a lot of people that say they know us. He'll how many people actually know. And therefore when you get into that kind of question and you start to think about. What are the challenges that seo's face just in general in their own discipline have they actually just picked up the discipline seo in maybe they're destroy marketers. Maybe they're not as technical or maybe their technical and are not more on digital marketing space. I guess so to answer that question. I do think. Seo's want to have that conversation. I think the leadership from the top is not positioning as ios correctly to have that conversation and that is where the understanding top has to be better to lead their organizations with. Seo or correctly you know. I think that part of the problem is that. Seo's don't have an executive level career path and because they're primarily operators rarely is there a vp of seo unless surreally big organization. And so you're looking at people that don't have executive experience for the most part they're operators and if they become really really successful they become well known in the industry. There isn't really a career path for them to excel in. Seo the have to branch out outside of seo and become more general digital marketers tizen. You've been an seo your whole career. Somehow you've actually grown up in the ranks and found an executive role in the organization and get a seat at the table. And i don't mean that as as a slight. I'm being honest that you know you're a rarity as an executive. Seo you work with lots of seo. Operators is there a problem where seo's aren't trained to think like executives and are just thinking about operations and not strategy meeting. I think kind of time back to some of the stuff that allen said. I don't think it's as much of having the skill said to me. It's more almost like learning a new language and it's taking your same knowledge and understanding and translating that into the terms and language. That's going to resonate with that audience and like for myself even when i'm talking to other. Seo's you have a pretty big divide between your technical more product oriented seo's and then more kind of content digital marketing type seo's and sometimes even depending on where as he sits within an organization or give you clues. I've noticed myself as if i'm talking to someone has more on the product side. My language like how i talk about something will shift and change a little bit and think as seo's for us to grow within the organization and further evangelize the power value. That search has is. We have to learn how to speak that language and we have to learn how to take the findings. The information into something. That's more digestible or relatable to that audience.
Biden can start accessing presidential daily briefing as transition gets underway
"All right, let's talk some election challenges in transition activity. Take it away. Yeah, let's start with the transition activity, which is underway. We know that. As of Monday, the General Services Administration informed President elect Joe Biden at the Trump administration was ready to begin the formal transition process, which in essence is their first step in admitting that President Trump didn't win the Joe Biden did, and we're beginning the process of getting the power and information to the hands of the person that should be taking over come January 20th. So that is, at least to this point in time. We're hearing underway Joe Biden's transition team now talking with all federal agencies. And with that A part of this transition also includes having the ability to access additional office space inside those agencies and the ability to use federal dollars for background checks on Biden's White House staff appointments as well as Cabinet picks, and it also opens the door for Joe Biden. To have the access to the cove in 19 data vaccine vaccine distribution plans and also get the presidential daily briefing. So all of that supposedly began yesterday is going through today here as well. And the interesting part about that is that while that's all underway, President Trump is still saying he is refusing to concede and that he is going to continue to fight. S O yesterday morning. He tweeted that there would be a big lawsuit that would be filed soon. Now we don't know what that lawsuit is. But the president says he's moving full steam ahead still full steam ahead. Now. Today, they're scheduled to be in Pennsylvania Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, meeting that Rudy Giuliani scheduled that is supposed to kind of clarify where things stand in regards to these elections suits that have gone on. We know that when you're just looking at the track record right now, there's only about three active cases remaining right now, out of all of the other cases. They haven't filed a case that the law team for President Trump since November 18th. So all of the lawsuits came between Election Day on November 18th. And since then, the flurry of lawsuits really kind of all concluded bloom. Daddy only three left in one of those, for instance, in Michigan is just all about there being rejected. Defective, improper fire. Wait, That's something that generally you fix real quick. Send it back to the courts and begin the process of hearing that case That hasn't happened with President Trump's legal team. We don't know why was it a mistake? Was it something that planning on doing But we do know that there might be an announcement today after Pennsylvania had their certification of votes yesterday. There might be an announcement today. They're in Gettysburg as to what the next move is going to be for the legal team. In Pennsylvania. I was watching an interview with Alan Dershowitz. And, of course, the Allens Ah, liberal attorney. Very, very bright. He said that the president probably had his best legal footing in Pennsylvania with two or three angles. But so far that really has not come to fruition is you kind of pointed out? Yeah, it's been a situation where you had 19 cases filed by the campaign. 15 have already been denied or dismissed by judges or withdrawn from the campaign itself. Most of that is coming from lack of substantial evidence of voter fraud to back up the claim, so what's left is Not a lot, and also not a lot of time Bloom, Daddy because you're going to have come the 14th of December which, as we're just looking at that calendars here, Thanksgiving wraps up and then they come. Everybody comes back to town. November 30th. The next days. December 1st you've got till December 14th to have electors from each state meet to formally nominate the next president. So if you're going to try to get a legal something battle in you start and finish it before December 14th in order to have any effect on it. Have a sign of that is if you're just trying to work the angle of getting electors to make a decision independent of the state. They represent an independent of the votes that were cast in that state that you also have two weeks to try to get that done here. So I don't know what's going to be able to get done. But these next two weeks between now and December, 14th will be interesting to see cause that will kind of finalize any final nails in the confident you will of the 2020 election.

Reasons Everyone Should Visit Houston
"Should someone come to houston. texas acetate. don't really think about houston all about when they hear houston is a space center. Houston actually has i think. It's supposedly had the most restaurants per capita so there's a lot of food here. It has a really good population mix because of his proximity to mexico. You get what's called tex-mex which is a kind of mikla. Mr for mexican in texas food i guess or american footprint is quite good and there's also other large ethnic populations here so you'll find Didn't population here and there is actually some folks from other african dies poorer. That's here as well. There's really lot more to do than people think plus is all the major sports teams are here so there is quite a bit to do that. They just don't think about and all day but think about it's a space center but that's just one thing that you can do houston. I cannot verify the top ten restaurants per capita in the. Us list does not seem to have. Although strangely enough it does hit my hometown of san jose california issue. San francisco is being number one which i believe. 'cause nobody there cooks but guess. What would you recommend that somebody do when they come to houston. I actually have a huge list of things that people can do. I was bored one day and came up with. I think about forty five three things that you can do in houston for different free things. Yes no shortage of things to do in houston itself. Museum district is actually very large. Most people that come to houston they are here for oil because those are the Ahead of his hair they also come down for the medical center and when united was based here it might have been the largest employer at the time but i don't case anymore so there is a slew of museums at least eighteen or sally's eighteen free ones. Anyway we also have a lot of parks like any large city and because there's so much oil. Many in houston is a lot of people giving money to the parks into the parks action. A very well developed than really. Well kept. Well as i told you ahead of time. I'm gonna get you into more specifics. So okay where should we start all right. So can we talk about transportations. Says the airline guy. Alan guy right. He said has to year. Boy says a hobby airport. Which up until a few. I guess last week was dominated by south west but then southwest is now going to have flight sida houston intercontinental airport and in the continent airports named after george bush. Not the son but the father although the bush's actually live here in houston so transportation wise And they are actually connected to the city but by buses. Everybody drives in. Houston if you come the best thing for you to do if you really want to get around the city. I guess efficiently is to rent a car. There is a local bus service that it was like one or two that comes from it takes about him and only cost dollar twenty five cents to get from houston intercontinental downtown houston and then there is the eighty eight. I think it is now that goes from houston hobby into downtown houston and methodology and a quarter. But i would recommend getting a car because it's so easy to city is very large and getting a car is probably the best way to get around and then we're going to start. We can actually start downtown so once you get your car. You're jumping forty five and you head south into into downtown as you're driving into downtown you can see the city if you want. You can stay out by the airports airports Tells around there but if you come into houston you might as well come. Stay in the city center. You can stay downtown. Houston they have all all the major chains they here. There is actually a myriad married which has the pool in the shape of texas. So yeah i haven't gone there yet but it's actually quite cool. I've seen pictures of it and there's also the hilton which is across georgia. Lebron's convention thinkers houston is a big convention city when they have cooled show which these things anymore but when they used to have the show. You could not find a hotel room in houston and the city is about. I think we're up to seven and a half million people in houston. It is the fourth largest city in the union. So i would actually get downtown. i once. you're downtown There is discovery green and discovered green is actually a park. And it's right by the georgia brown Any literally sits between the myra one side and the hilton on the other side and off to the left of that is the minute maid park which is where the baseball team. The houston astros place. Now if one thing about maid park is if you're into trains and says very old city if you go to most of us cities you'll find a union station right right and most of them are still being used as stations while the one in houston is not it is now where when you go to the astros. That is the hall big hall that you normally have for stations. Dave turned that into the entrance to the ballpark.

How We Study Alzheimer's and Potential Treatments
"We have two guests today. the first is alan pal quits. He is the senior research professor of medicine and president and ceo of the indiana biosciences research institute. Also joining us is bruce lamb. He is director of stark neuroscience institute. Welcome both of you. Thank you so we usually like to start off by asking people how they got to the position that they're in like how does one become a senior research professor of medicine allen and what is president and ceo of the indiana biosciences research institute. So if you could tell us a bit about what you do and how you got here so thank you very much earned so I think my experience has been somewhat atypical. In terms of coming into academia. I spent twenty eight years at the leeann. Company started off as a bench level. Scientists of medicinal chemist and eventually in my last eleven years woods the vice president discovery chemistry research and technologies where oversaw small molecule drug discovery across all the areas of therapeutic interests that lily so this was a very rich experience and and after being there for quite some time. I had the opportunity to make an early retirement at the end of two thousand seventeen. And i was thinking about my next steps and i had developed long relationship with a not shaker. Who the rhinos. The key leader here at a school of medicine and asked me to come over and help with the position. Health initiative than any perspective that i could provide in and input in you know things kind of transpired in i came over as a professor of medicine and eventually met bruce and you know a lot about our work together here in the past year and really create some great synergies and then as i spent some time that you another opportunity came up in in the community and this lousy indiana bioscience research institute which is an organization that really had a ton of blossomed out of a vision to really create additional note of innovative research and capabilities. That would draw the community together and diorite been around for about five or six years. And now i'm there to really help create additional bridges and create new scientific directions that really elevate The the sciences here in the mid west. And hopefully beyond great and bruce sort of what what has been your experience. How did you get to hear. Thanks a lot erin. So i'm a phd level basic scientist by training. I was at johns hopkins At case western. Reserve university. In cleveland clinic in doing science research into alzheimer's disease actually for my entire career and then I saw this unity to come to indiana in early. Two thousand sixteen to lead out this translational neuroscience research institute Stark neurosciences research institute. And it's a really unique Place that brings together. Clinicians basic scientists translational People now drug discovery as well sort of brings everybody together into one location to really do innovative and interdisciplinary research. So we wanted to talk today about alzheimer's disease. So i'd really like to start by just for our listeners. What is alzheimer's disease. Yeah so alzheimer's. Disease is obviously a brain disease And it was first described. And i think the history is important because it sort of still sort of how we've sort of you. The disease was described by a bavarian neuropathologist us alzheimer in early nineteen hundreds And he had a patient who had dementia sort of loss of memory She had paranoia clinical features that she had and then when she died Being a neuro pathologist he looked in her brain did standard stains at the time and described this unique brain pathology which still even today sort of defines the disease and that was primarily that there were two primary major neuro-pathological hallmarks that he observed in the brain tissue one where these amyloid Sort of the sticky substances which were aggregating in the brain and the other words what we currently today called neurofibrillary tangles which is another Brain pathology and even today it still sort of those two primary brain pathologies that are pathan demonic for alzheimer's disease. However i will say that as we've gotten into the modern age and in our began to understand the complexities reprieve that alzheimer's disease is a is a complex set of probably multiple disorders which are very related to one. Another but actually. There's probably not one set of alzheimer's disease out there. So is it. Is it just sort of like a neuro degenerative. Cognitive decline is we just believe is because of a few specific reasons so there's clearly a lot of neurodegenerative cognitive decline syndromes but alzheimer's is just a group where we think we know where the pathologies right sort of defines. You know one particular type and again. There's there's many different types that this is probably the most common one and it's also very much age related so you really see sort of a doubling after about the age seventy seventy five doubling every five years of of the incident so with sort if the baby boomers reaching the age of sixty five at ten thousand. A day right. Now that's why there's the big increase in number of cases is there a typical course. Does it usually hit a certain age. And last a certain amount of time. It's pretty variable You know there is a sort of a prototypical alzheimer's disease. But if you talked to the clinicians. And i'm not a clinician. But if you talked conditions they say if you've seen one case of alzheimer's disease you've seen one case of alzheimer's disease You know that really. There's so much variation in how how people present their how it progresses within those people So it's it's pretty variable. Obviously the common underlying features certainly memory loss at least at a general level but within that you have other changes sometimes with personality disorders of all variety of other things that can come along with alzheimer's

"This ability you have to communicate with animals. Sounds extraordinary. The picture of the bear in your waiting room in the office is so interesting because I've seen a another shot of you. Right hugging the bear right next to bear hugging here and the bears head is almost larger than your entire body. And you do this thing with a marshmallow with the bear. What what tell me what what you do. I prefer marsh now on my mouth and the bear takes it out between my lips and tastes it are they. I can't explain it all. And they they they just read your luck a book and they know they spot fear if they if they sense fair then you you have to be very careful but if they sense there's no fear there then it just sit back like you and I are doing and we just have a little go out. Did you develop a way to deal with animals? Or do you think you'll always had. Oh I think in the womb. I had my folks love Al's deeply. Just Kinda my life. Somebody told me that you were at a zoo. And they said don't be don't be were. Don't be offended the animals. This animal never comes out. I think it was a giraffe. Oh it was. It was in DA at Columbus Zoo. Big Huge territory for this giraffe and he was an farthest corner. Wahab way way back there and he said don't he he won't come over even for food. Evil come over. Don't do well. I can't help but I have to talk to the animals so I should come on. Come on sweetie come on over come over. And he just looked Kamala. He came from that corner all the way across and put his head over the fence and let me pet. I was just mind boggled. I want to get back in there with I. Stay with you. What are you supposed is? How do you do it? I I think they sense a lack of fear my primary thing but also tremendous love German. I love animals more than most of the thoughtless over exception of a couple. That's another story. You're good relator to people as well. Have you learned anything about relating to animals that you apply to relating to people? Do you think I mean with the hub? Realize if you meet somebody for the first time like I've been the whole time we've been sitting here this nice engineer. I've been hitting on him while I'm talking just that same basic joke. About how many times do you get with a class? I see it coming.

"I guess it was natural for a person with so many interests to go from loving with an old typewriter does to the fibers of paper to creating an APP that mimics very sound of a typewriter.

It doesn't have to so. I help run. Allen's communication company all the communication training and we use linked in jobs all the time in fact recently we just hired a wonderful woman named Kendall lovelace who is our global events manager and I could not have found her any other way but through Lincoln jobs and it was easy to use. It was searchable and we found a list of candidates and we brought in five or six of them Automatically for an interview and I cannot say enough good things about linked in jobs. Because it's just an easy service to us and I love it and for somebody who runs a business on a daily basis. It's a lifesaver and a time saver but I like about linked in jobs. Is it screens candidates with hard and soft skills and these are something that all business people are looking for and it so you can hire the right person really fast and they searched for things like collaboration creativity adaptability and the depending on what you're looking for you can self select whatever they have experienced for.

Post terms and conditions apply. This is clear embiid and now back to my conversation with Tom. Hanks Alright listen to this. Oh that's That's the typewriter APP. That's hanks writer produced an Abbey. Yeah that does typing thing and as you type you hear the sound of ood seductive about the sound of the typing. Thank you thanks writer. That's available on the on the APP store. Ha W rit. I knowing that so many people can pose on a laptop opera It really a a pattern iphone. What's missing there is the per customer service the sound? It's not tap tap tap so you have. I think there's a choice now at five or six typewriters each one a different typeface as though you have a collection of six typewriters you can you type with all ten fingers. Oh yeah yes like without looking. Oh Yeah it's it's sometimes you have to make sure not looking at it so it comes out you know of course if you if you're not above the home keys then you're then you're screwed. Do you remember taking typing class? I never took it. I wish I did. I written all my life with two fingers. Oh that's the worst way to type that there is a number one. It's slow down your estimation. Yeah Sorry Kid. Can we wrap this up? I need to go major. Have to look at the keys as you're doing it and you're going back and forth between what you're typing when you can touch type Which I learned how to do in high school to music to records to make you go more rhythmic. Yeah Because you weren't you only supposed to look at the the the paper not the keys. Ed The records got faster and faster every week. Oh that music would say okay and ready. Dent bump bump bump bump on a space S S S space D D D Spy. You know I'm beginning to understand why I never took that drive you nuts but you in it for five or six weeks and next thing you know you haven't done that and go a. w. k. 's space W K space l. m. e. space. You had to go like the problem is when they put on a Spike Jones record. Then then you got like an acid trip you know. It was like gibberish down with. This is so interesting I mean you. You must have some. When people collect things they get an intimate relationship with the things they collect. Now for instance when you if people have a collection of Stradivarius violins have to play them. Every once in a while to keep them in shape you have to type. When you do what happens with you. I have some typewriters. That are simply objects of art. They sit on a shelf and they're never use but the vast majority of my collection are working manual. Typewriters that I rotate into use so that they all get They all get used in the course of course special typewriters on nothing special about first edition kind of thing my got. I think the most valuable typewriter I have is an oddly enough and IBM selectric. That Leo DiCaprio used in the movie. Catch me if you and it's funny. I went I went to the I went to the prop master after we were done shooting the scene and I said I will give you twenty five dollars for that. Ibm selectric they said. Okay and he took twenty five dollars. We said you know you gotTa have it for free. I'M GONNA give this guy But it's not about who who typed. I have one typewriter. I think that was owned by Mickey Spelane. I can't prove that he wrote anything on it. But I there's a providence says Maki spelane on the typewriter but mama typewriters worth about sixty bucks you know tops and if I sign them they're worth about sixty two bucks tops fascinating obsession to me when you talk about the keys getting into the texture of the paper. There's something about that. That's not mechanical. There's a there's a human element to these machines that I think you see now. Think faster on a typewriter than I did with a pen in my hand or even on even on my lap. That's interesting you're nervous is on the keyboard helping you. I'd rather get going and stick with it then pause and go back and edit and delete. I show you saying in an interview villas movie. That's coming out now that I'm so interested in seeing I haven't had a chance to see it yet. Mister Rogers Beautiful Day in the neighborhood right so I show you say. Is this true that you felt you learn to listen. Better playing Fred Rogers Mariella. Who is the director? Yeah wonderful direct. He's the boss. We were talking about this very thing about Fred's the great power he had and also a defense mechanism to was to listen and not talk. Let the other person let who? You're talking to reveal themselves in the silence as well as from a single question because they have a tendency like for example for kids to meet a kid for the person and say how. How old are you? Do you go to school with Great Hugh in? What's your favorite subject? Do you have a lot of friends at school? Do you like baseball. We don't even give them a chance to answer the question. We just ask them and and Fred particularly with children would. He did this thing and it's kind like he wouldn't even ask them a question he would say.

"When I I read your writing I wish prize at how much I admired it because I didn't know of you as a writer and the new book of short stories is amazingly good. Oh you read that. Thanks my God. It's so good. The usual you used language to get inside my head and surprise me and keep me amused and interested to get me deeper into the people and you don't use language to show off which I really admire. You could be poetic if you wanted to. But you you you're more plainspoken and and I really loved that. That's the stuff that I just naturally ended up gravitating to you know. I remember We were asked to buy books at a quote Unquote Book Fair and I looked at these titles that they had on car table after card table in high school or junior high school and I had never heard of any of these books. There were by writers. Never heard of the head titles. I'd never heard it and I finally said what is this. A scam you guys. Who Know We'd like we'd like to read we promote reading and it turned out that these books were specifically written for high schoolers. Why you'd never heard so the stories were simplistic. They weren't very so instead. I read in cold blood by Truman capote. That's a book. I got and it scared the living daylights out of me and from from a very early age on I wanted to read about the way things actually worked. And perhaps the way things actually. That's exactly the way I approach to reading. As a kid I was eleven years old and a friend of the family said to. Do you like to read and I said Yeah I really enjoyed you. Know what are you what did you would it be read lately? I said I just read. What MAKES SAMMY RUN? All my law at eleven even read it now. She's she had this stunned look on her face and then she said well. Of course that's over your head and I thought no. It is not shows you how people really behave. It's not the granddaddy of them. All that experience. When somebody has read enough of a book there was a book that was going around and the first line used the word crap in it all that David Copperfield. Kinda crap and none of us had ever seen a book in our library. Dead anything remotely like a swear word and so all of a sudden everybody wants to know what was catcher in the Rye reading catcher in the Ryan at red to lead to nine stories and and also to to be empowered but to discover it yourself I would say that to discover it yourself with the help of a good librarian. Who realizes you're hanging around you might WanNa you might want to like be if they'd like if you if you enjoyed reading airport by Leah by Arthur Hailey you might enjoy reading Armageddon by Leon Yours and so off begins kind of like guide to think when you were young. Would I'd give up on thirty or forty pages if I wasn't really into it. I still have a tendency to I when I was young. I loved reading anything that seems like it came from real life because I really wanted to understand how things got the way they were so we had a living room. That had been decorated. I guess by somebody who bought books by the yard as opposed to the color. They were red leather bound. Haw But they happen to be the congressional record so I opened up a book and lay on the floor and read the congressional record from the. I guess it was from the nineteen forties. And I couldn't get over it. These people would say the distinguished member from Idaho and and they'd insult each other in the most elite classical terms and I thought well this is fascist like a play dialogue and I loved it. There was that there were those type of books that I pretend to have read for a long time. You know when I finally read Moby Dick. Oh I loved Moby Dick. I pretended to have read moby. Dick for an awful long time like that with the Russians off the Hijaz I read. I read worn piece. I pretend to have read Rascal Mikhalkov Book. I would always get up to the reverend's sermon in moby. Dick and I couldn't get this like goes on for seventy pages. I couldn't get past that I couldn't get pass it and I was out Was out with some some friends at whatnot and a friend of one of the guys to sit I'm reading moby Dick You could never read Moby Dick. No you can and he said if you could just get past that reverend servants really does take. Everybody had that I'd pass it. I understand why it's now one of the greatest books now. Here's the thing when I read book of Short Stories. I think you're one of your obsessions crept out without typewriters typewriter. Yeah I mean the the chapters begin with the picture of a different typewriter. What how did you develop this obsession with? How how do you? How many times? How many typewriters you have at home in at home? I'll probably have fifteen scattered about the house but down at the office. I have like a hundred and twenty or something like that. I rest my case. I WHAT IS THE GOTTA? I gotTA start getting rid of them because my kids have said. We're not going to bury you with these things that you'd better start getting them away There is a story that is in that collection that is literally how I got my first typewriter. A friend of mine was a year ahead of me in school and when he went off to college he gave me his high school typewriter. Which was a piece of junk? It was like a knockoff. Nineteen seventies version of a very very very cheaply made horribly constructed typewriter. You could type on and I had it for a couple of years when I was in a I was working in. Cleveland is an actor and I needed to get it fixed and clear was at the Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival I was at the Cleveland. Play or no legendarily. So at the Cleveland Play House. Yeah that was. The Cleveland. Play House was the bitter rival of the best and vice versa. Thing and it was falling apart and the carriage would slide. In when I returned it would not line up properly. There was all sorts of problems with it so I took it to this old German guide. Detroit Avenue Business Machines on the west side of Cleveland. And he was at a shop that was just jammed with every kind of like thousand key adding machines and what have you and he was also servicing by that time printers copy machines or whatnot and he said what can I do for your young man. I said I need to have this typewriter service so let me see the machine. It had leather at case and I opened it up and threw his hands up and says I will not touch this machine album not I will not touch it. He said well I said why is your job to repair business. He says yes. I re- I work on machines. Not On toys. And this is a toy. And he lectured me for the better part in twenty minutes. About what a true typewriter isn't I walked out of there with a Hermes two thousand typewriter that he gave me five dollars off For Trade and for my junk type or any told. I'm just going to throw this away said okay. Fine but that Hermes two thousand typewriter which that particular typewriter got lost over the course about ten years and ten moves as since been replaced by. Well you know one hundred nineteen machines how I understand the story leading to own. You're asking why Y- probing deeper Allen. I mean I understand owning a typewriter because the guy gets turned onto it. But how did you wind up with? You have an obsession with typewriter. I do how did you get that? You can change the world with a typewriter now. You can't change our world two of the pen and paper. If your handwriting is legible enough mine is not. There is something about the order that a a good typewriter puts the words in the the. The margins are equal typefaces crisp. You can make mistakes but go back over it and what you come out of at. The end of a piece of paper is as unique. A creation as any oil painting watercolor photograph negative. Did you write your your book of Short Stories? On a typewriter I began. I wrote about first five pages of one draft of the story on a typewriter because I didn't have my laptop with me at the tunnel. It'd be mad. Dissed in order to do it on a typer but I type every day. I sent a letter to somebody. Leave a memo. Put out notes. I I I send a lot of letters on typewriters because there is something about the purity of the words in your head and the sound of the percussion of the of the keys hitting the paper. And I can't go back enough again to say the uniqueness of let me tell you story I was at nor ephrons house. We were good friends. We work together and nor was one of the Great. Inspirations and She had up on the wall of just in the in the hallway. She had a letter and I leaned in. It was a framed letter so did not get a letter from the letterhead was No Coward and it was a typewritten letter from a Goldeneye his place down in Down Jamaica Right. His his his winter home in Jamaica and it said An all it was whereas a letter to somebody thanking them for a very witty lunch. A lovely a lovely afternoon at their house and there was a little kind of joke at it was obviously shared between Dole cowered in the end a hostess and it was assigned Knoll and I looked at that and I thought no coward type that at his house in Jamaica named Golden Eye. And now it's sixty years later it's hanging on a friend of mine's wall. Nobody throws away a typewritten. So type or a typewritten letter kind of has its own signature and you can picture that person's hands hitting the keys is at the end the force of your finger on the keys impacts the depth of. Here's here's the thing when you type with a typewriter. You are not applying ink onto paper. You're stamping into the fiber of the papers. If I always type out dear Alan alda which by the way I will send you a letter. I can't wait that those are the. Da Our space a. l. a. and Space A. L. A. Space are not on the surface of the paper. They are inside the fabric of the paper and that alone to me. It turns it into a form of a graphic art. It's not just an never mind. What idea might be communicated in their physically if you put it in a drawer? It'll last two thousand years..

"It is who makes it ultimately. Let me me by it right now. They won't let the by it and thereby buttons Google's going to have their buy buttons so I think that's the future of search. It'll be much much more intelligent but also more useful we're going we see more. No click results Google. But that's a good thing when you have a no quick results like what's the weather today three years ago. You want to know what the weather was you google. What's the weather Raleigh? And then you had to click into like CBS News and you had to click today only and then it would tell you after you wash the video. Now you Google just tells you so. I think we're going to see more and more of that because it's useful and then from from there you'll do more searches because that's ultimately what we want so future of search. They'll just be more waste search. I don't think we've always putting devices in our houses route for us to search not to. They're putting devices sir houses not because they just want to give us another way to play music they want us to do more searches so landscape. A search will change the way we're going to do search change and things will get from search will change. You may be able to say okay. Google what's What's the price of laundry detergent and Google?
