"And then and then who was that? Is that a word? Think all of us? Yeah, we didn't know it was a word. Oh, my guy. Got out of my lane. I was laughing so hard. But anyway, what I wanted to say I'm not going to watch the debate tonight. I am Trumpster, but I get so anxious. That makes me so anxious. So nervous to watch it. I'm just I'm gonna have to hear about. I hope Trump annihilates sleepy Joe. However, I'm worried that if Trump is too mean that Americans don't like that they don't really like that. You know, I mean, like beating up on an old man. I don't know. I think I think Dave kind of reference that A few minutes ago that you thought Trump wouldn't really go hard at him because I think people would feel bad. I think I think he's got to be careful, very careful in that regard. Biden being an older guy. He's the oldest guy that's ever run for president. And then he has seemed to have some cognitive issues a time. I think of Trump really attacked him. I think it might work against him. I really do. Yeah, That's what I'm thinking, too. I agree with Dave, but I just had to call in case you guys just had been going on Bigley. Thanks. Guy appreciates the lorry and we appreciate you Bigly. And we will. If you don't want to watch. We will be covering the debate. Live here on K away. If you just want to listen. Coverage starts at six with Michael Brown. I should've mentioned that you and I think it I might listen, because you get a different, different feel. You know when you're just listening, and you're not seeing him in the car, right? I mean some people. Maybe some people would prefer to listen to it at home. I guess some people listen to the Broncos. Maybe you could turn down how that wouldn't necessarily give you an advantage because it would be the same thing you would be hearing the people turn down the TV feed of a Broncos game listened us, which we really appreciate that. That's because we're a different broadcasting crew than the one Doing the game on TV, the local feed you a lot. A lot of our uncle's fans would want the local flavor. I get that maybe not this year. Not for the debates the same feet. Yeah, right. That's that's true. Speaking of the game on Thursday, if you heard if we're going to have lights on anywhere, so we bring lights like negative ghostwriter. Shall we bring like a miner's helmet with a little light on the front? Might you might want to do that. You might need that. Leaving the facility. Oh, I mean, it could be really dark. I do not believe the lights in the stadium. The field lights are going to be on some head lamps for you guys. It wasn't our heads. Yeah, I bought them for my hike. Like you've got a regular size. I don't think so. Huge. Not very, Alana. Compare your head toe. My hit Rick's head. Not really. But, Rick, save it. We know yours bigger. Gosh, wait a minute. Let on that I take a time out 25 a key away..

Messi Wants Out
"For more reaction than to the breaking news that Messier's pass alone that he wants to leave the clubs, Robson Frank Leboeuf and Craig Burley with me Craig. I. Know you'll say one's not really that much were surprised, but it is a surprise. no, I don't think so. Don't I just think. Boss Alana, how become too blase and their approach to spending to recruitment. To structure. I think the always just fell while you know rule butter the all off from best dot and the next thing and he always saints contract. And he always stays and I think he's both. We talked about extreme after the game that I you know we would not be surprised if he wanted to go to pastures neurons and try some fresh I think this is great. I don't know. But the boys I think this is great. Here we have a guy who has got what I don't know top level maybe another three years depending on injury four producing the kind of. Is because of his age, and here we have them finally say in right who wants to showcase my challenge that is not bus alone ups I. Think this is brilliant unless it a. Huge Huge checkup, the backside full custody, and cloak. It really is thirty three years of eighty is frank. He still got it most definitely. The big question now that everyone is going to be asking is way is he going to go let's focus? Shall we on Manchester City because of the relationship with radio because one of the few teams you imagine who could afford his wages with this work feeding? I I think so yeah, I think as you said, you know he knows July and Gordon knows him. So I think he knows how to handle the the real man and and make the dressing work for works for him and and the Club of course, the financier for that and and I'm not very worried because we know. Marketing Wise Mush indicting wise that the money comes back very easily when you have big stars in those kind of players will create problems in the average for years where too much paid will create problems to a club. So I'm not worried about that. I think it's a very good option to see missy we city in the Premier League but I think he's the City's not the only going to the. We're going to go to to to an offer and make sure they have the the the former baby bustling player in. In the team I think if he's not a surprise is definitely amendment and I'm with Craig with that, I want to see that coming. Of course, bustling funds will be disappointed but I think it's in the world of football. It's a relevent like when we saw Renaldo leaving. Madrid to. Even. Bigger Zing missy living wearing another shirt is going to be huge. Of course, is the only club that he's ever known. Robert. Tactically say to get him how does that work? Well, I think it will. We've PEP Guardiola makes to build the team around when you're going to play like you have to build a team around him and that's what he'll do you probably Plame maybe off the front, you can play a slightly wider area and other players making runs beyond him that midfield would have to be better defensively. Because, he will be asked to track back and do a defensive side of the game. So I think he works at. Man. City you when you look at other clubs, I'm not sure it work other clubs. It certainly work inter because he'd have to out Front Antonio cone site would ask to be chasing around and closing the bow down that were I think the set up with Man City. Searching perfectly, he knows the manager the manager knows how to get the best out of him and I think he would actually improve play over the next two years because he's become a little bit stale as at Barcelona it'd be great. Everybody's the same placement city
Coronavirus: When Will the Vaccine be Ready?
"Cuba seems to have the coronavirus under control, but a lot of the world continues to struggle in the past six weeks. The number of cases worldwide has roughly doubled doubled in six weeks for many of us hope lies in finding a vaccine with me to talk about the latest vaccine research and efforts to ramp up. Production is the world's global health corresponded Alana Gordon along this week phase. Three trials started in the US for one. One of the leading vaccine contenders. What does that mean phase three trials so the biotech? Madeira I'm with the national. Institutes of Health has started this phase three trial, and what that means is thirst killing of testing of the vaccine. People recruiting some like thirty thousand people where some get placebo. Some don't because at this point. You don't really know I. Have The vaccine approach that's been developed in the lab in these smaller scale phases. Whether that actually works. You also have to figure out how the dose works and side effects and this company Moderna it's not the only candidate. No, definitely not. There's an Oxford trial with Astra Zeneca. That's already been in three. That's being tested in the UK south. Africa and Brazil Marco for overall. There's like two dozen vaccines and human trials. At this point, governments are placing their bet than some of these front runners to try to get that vaccine available. Because let's you figure out something works. You don't have the time or space in a pandemic to then be like okay. Let's start figuring out how to scale this up. What does that all mean for access as people are like predicting when vaccines going to be ready, so they can make it. The conversations are on access are happening right now, and they're complicated, and they're full of ethical issues. I talked to Monsef slowly about this. He's the chief advisor for Operation Warp speed. It's this new government program. It's really in the hot seat because it's focused on getting a vaccine for the United States by January hardest step, frankly for access is forever vaccines. And, that's what we're. Aiming to still billions of dollars are going into figuring out these different vaccines. The US has narrowed it down. He says to eight vaccine candidates, and then they've also been agreeing to manufacturing contracts, but in all of this slowly says that the companies have agreed to share data from their research on these trials with the world. For him right now is focused as if you can figure out the right combination of a vaccine approach that is a game changer for all vaccines, Frank H, the the most valuable come. Next to of course, the vaccine noses themselves is. What does it take to be protected? Because then everybody can go and do that. Alone, I understand that, but they're still. The manufacturing part of the vaccine has to get made, and then how does distribution to what countries get prioritized? I mean. If you look at the past, we shouldn't be surprised with what we're seeing. An which is that geopolitics is all over this I mean. There's a global race for a vaccine also for access to it. Countries are trying to do this for their populations, and what that means countries that have more resources wind up getting the contracts I I talked to Raji Than Kaya. He's with the company Takeda about this, but he wears hats because he has worked in the US government on Pandemic Preparedness Nausea, Global Vaccine Access he does worry about this trend with all these countries. Now that we're seeing lineup for contracts I hope is that there will? Will be very little time between when significant numbers of people say in the US, get vaccine, and when the rest of the world gets meaningful volumes of vaccine. Are there efforts being made right now to broaden vaccine access when that vaccines developed? Yeah, absolutely and Sovan Kayak is actually on the board of the Coalition for epidemic. Preparedness Innovations full is called often referred to Steffi and they're working with the world. Health, organization. The idea is to bring in as many countries as possible to lower resource and higher resource countries to come up with these contracts with manufacturers, and the idea is that twenty percent of populations would gain access to vaccine. Not all countries have signed onto this like the United States. It tends to be that the lower resource countries tend to bear the bigger burden of diseases of pandemic for longer. The world's Alana Gordon. Thanks very much. Thanks Markup.

Why Fast Fashion Needs A Makeover
"In the last fifteen years, production of clothing has doubled, and at the same time, the number of times something is worn, has haft now that means that over eleven million garments landfill every week in the UK alone. Ultimately the novelty that fashion promises causing irreversible harm to both planet and people. This week's food for thought sees presenter and climate activist Venetia Amana. Join me to discuss why it's time for the wasteful fashion industry to clean up his act highlight Venetia Halloween. I think today's episode has been so I've Jew and I. Now I've been wanting to record it with you for so long. I think in a way we kickoff by discussing the fact that fashions wastefulness I mean. It's almost on a par with single. Use Plastic really if we're looking at the impact that it has. Yet it is. It's hugely not only wasteful industry, but also polluting industry. It's actually kind of looking to get into sustainability and thinking about the planet. functions of really good way to think about it, because it's very accessible way of thinking how a piece of clothing. Goes from from the US ultimately when you when you grow, grow, crops or something caught in, it comes from the S.. And then it's Picton. Soon and. All of these different things all these different prices which make up the supply chain before it's packed and delivered in lands on your doorstep Orlands in the shop future to buy but yet it. It's a huge. Carbon footprint the fashion industry. It's supposed to be one of the top two or three polluting industries and yeah, in terms of waste it's it's incredibly wasteful. we live in a timely fashion still of as. Something disposable fashion is incredibly cheap now and in other places, and because it's so cheap way often fail like it doesn't hold much significance, so we send a lot of close to landfill and a lot of clothing incinerated. All, at the same time, it's really really important is Barry Mind is that? Someone somewhere is paying. The paper will making a clothes or so, if not paid a living wage and eighty percent of them a female when we think about women's rights and bang feminists, we have to think about that with all cloudy, because we want to support all women right, and we want to support the woman who making all clouds goodness I mean. So many connections to what you've just said that intense of what I've done in my previous life. I'm thinking when I was at university and. I used to shop with these such and websites where claiming was so cheap, and I never made I never made a connection that it came from the earth I would I never even thought to the fact that impact to the environment and I definitely probably what I know I didn't. I didn't think about the chain of people and somebody somewhere that was involved with the price of making his clients and I. Think what you're doing on social media, environment is fabulous. You've recently raised Alana's with charity campaigns. You've been at the forefront to claim suggesting that the bronze behind them greenwashing customers. Could you delve into that I? A little bit? Yeah, absolutely. greenwashing as something that we say a lot in fashion, especially at the moment comes from the time whitewashing, which is basically when white people kind of whitewash industries like film, industry's takeover, different ways and Often, it's symbol creations when we as white people kind of commodified live. By coaches make are I might try and day and don't give credit where credit J. it's also kind of a marketing ploy, and it's the same with greenwashing companies often kind of telling us trying to tell us that during something good when they already notes. See this recently with kind of plastic auto companies telling US everything's okay, because that bottles are made from recycled plastic when Rabi. To bustles if we're in a position to do so like you know hair in. The U. K. is just refill will to right. It's like a much more money during it so with function. We see Fush Bruns. Greenwash. In lots of different ways and I, yeah I I've I've taken to social media to cool when it because. I have a when I want to use it and kind of tired of the nonsense, so bronze like eight am and Zora have a kind of conscious collections, so they'll bring out a small range of clothes that a made from various things like orange juice, pope and unical tears, or whatever is.

Cracking the Leadership Code with Alain Hunkins
"Hello, hello, welcome to dose of leadership so happy you're tuning in. Man. What a crazy week! It's been for me I feel like I've been out of touch with those of leadership I've been so busy with family one of my daughters. Unexpectedly, move up to Detroit so to deal with that. Then, I started flying again I actually started flying into. Believe this. Flu Can re second at the beginning of twenty twenty. And then I went on my first trip last week mid June. I'm recording this. On June twenty fifth. was a week ago I went to Inchon. China in Beijing or Inchon South Korea, and in Beijing China and then back to Dallas. Do you believe that? An implant again tomorrow ahead in the Paris of the world seemingly is coming back to normal. But it still feels weird out there I tell you it just does not seem the same. Even when I was in John, it seemed like World War Z. almost there was nobody the airport. Didn't have any passengers on the plane we were picking up. Cargo of all. Things didn't stay the night in China. Because we can't I wouldn't want to. Because of the Cova deal. But it was just weird, but it was good on one hand, but still a stark reminder of of how different things are and. It's a little uneasy and I'll be honest with you. Leadership has been attested and challenged. In the. Early. I really do think this is trying times for everybody but This is a great opportunity for leadership, and hopefully this show Dosa leadership is a great resource for you a free resource for you in your leadership journey. Where authentically we deal with leadership topics, and how all how helping you to become a better leader? That's what it's all about and I know I certainly been tested over the last two weeks. And I'm just like you and it's glad to be back in the saddle and giving you a great episode another great conversation. With Alon Hunkin 's Alana's. Spelled L. A. L., A. N., the French pronunciation, but demand. What a great guest! I really connected with him! We've been trying to get him on the show for quite some time. Even looking back to February and March and and we finally got it done. By about three or four weeks ago when I recorded this conversation and I'm excited to bring this to you this week. He's just a one of the great ones I really. Do. You think so? He's a sought after keynote speaker facilitators coach. He is a leadership expert. He's leadership junkie. It's right in. To the dose of leadership tribe. And he wrote a great book in fact, if I could write a book if I can wake up and morning, said Richard You could write any type of book that want. I think I would write. Like he did and cracking the leadership code. It's really good. It's about three secrets to building strong leaders. And he got. He has a lot of science behind e discovering the brain science behind leading people. He's got a lot of great real life leadership stories in the book and at the end of the day. The book is a practical leadership toolkit to become a better leader. That's what it's all about just like. This show is something that you can put in your arsenal in your tool kit and become a better leader. And I like what he uses to. In the tool kit as you know as with me, I got the four CS Alon has the three CS in to him. It's all about connection, communication and collaboration I love that I absolutely love that. So we deep dive into that in this conversation and we we also what I love about him. He's the first guest that I've had a near that. That references Frederick? And I do that a lot in my keynotes, and so I cannot stand Frederick. Winds Will Taylor and The idea of scientific management theory that came about, and they dusted revolution and I. Still reason why I don't like him is because of the way that he viewed people. He viewed workers as cogs in a machine and He's a mechanical engineer by trade. And he looked at these things, and anyway it Frederick was a Taylor in my opinion has created this. Cultural Rift that still is with us today, even though it's been debunked for the past sixty years that the type of scientific management theory doesn't work in the dynamic environments that we're dealing with today, it works in certain situations, but not overall and the mindset and the concepts that were brought forth from Frederick. Wendell Taylor are still we're dealing with them today in all the organizations particularly large organizations. And leadership is the solution the type of ship we talk about here on those leadership and Alon. Gets a one hundred percent, and so we deep dive into that. You're really gonNA. Enjoy that. My highly encourage you to go get his book. Cracking the leadership code again if I. Could write a book. It would be one like this it's it's that good

All you need is one product in something to do really well. Let's get back to the basis in nature business. Let's find a need and let's fill it. All you need is one product. Fifty I wish I only had what that is some site advisory at the? Very, much for sharing that because we often do get caught up in the manucher of what this is all about, and this brings me to my next. Very important point is We. We don't often think about business in terms of the value that we provide and the fact that we are serving others. Is that something that you educate people on? Is that is the core of while you're in business. Absolutely our motto, and we just redid our messaging for our skincare. Businesses is skincare with heart, so the entire idea is. How can you know the the process of self care? Some people usually females, but a lot of males do it, too, is taken care of their skin or getting a facial or a SPA treatment. That's like a really special time moment for now. And we realized that early on, and we decided to make her company all about low, so the idea behind skin care with heart is that we literally hand select ingredients, and we the truly we'll test it on ourselves and Make sure we'd love it before eating release it to clients, and then if you buy any product from our store, you get a bunch of gifts, and we just try to literally start a friendship with you right yet, so for us. It's everything you know. Obviously, it's a lot easier through consulting to love others and to go the extra mile and shorter's care, so you know that was a lot easier, but. I would tell you you know. What would it look like for you? In your kind of been mostly every interaction, you haven't someone. You know ended in a friendship. Right like what if we? If, we viewed our interactions, cyberbullying sat way I think we'd have a lot more people returning. This is one of those codes that I have just taken so much out of You can take that. You're coming from a good place Jarrett and Alana. She's got some amazing things. In her businesses, the fact that you're working with the top of the trade in every. WAY SHAPE informs an absolute credit to you given that we start off with a pamphlet at Costco. Jared now wind. People want to find yourself and Alana. Where's the best place to connect with you?

We're in a good place because we've been doing so well. Kobe, because we're all online and our numbers are the snap. As a male I find that my mental health strongly instead of depending on how businesses are doing financially, right? And you know Alana's obviously. You know her mental help. It's based on a lot of different things you know being a female and so yeah I think I identify an understanding. Those things is the first half of winning the battle. Lena Nights and high on the anxiety scale, and I think a lot of entrepreneurs to that's one thing that sort of fuels the fire right, but yes, we yeah we. We found that if we can communicate properly your. Counseling sometimes maybe even some medication to help us go top seasons. It's manageable process, but what will people get themselves in trouble is they're in denial, either with their spouse or with themselves, and they live this like unhappy unhealthy life where? This is no fun. In their whole life, trying to pile up a big pile of money and I've never seen a hearse pulling a U. Haul, you know. The thing I love about this sort of compensation, jared. Is that we we peel away the mechanics of owning a business and we talk about the human because to me. If you're not happy healthy, you may well as forget about running a business at Oak. Would you agree with that? Oh my gosh one hundred percent I. mean you know. Why are you doing this can not so many entrepreneurs do so much consulting with so many different types of been since book for Neil for my own business. And I talked to so many of these guys. You didn't tell you know. Their mission in life is to make sure that they have been successful business and. Make a lot of money and this and that and I just think it's a pretty shallow goal I mean. Certainly we should have financial objectives actual goals like there's nothing role. But man when it defines who you are as a person. You know for me like I. I asked people all the time will. How do you define being rich? What does that mean to you bike? and I love Guy Robert. Kiyosaki wrote Rich Dad. Poor Dad him as well. He's Richard measured in dollars.

It was I. Wish it would have saved it in company that I built. The website was called Value Web. They're not even around anymore. They got bought by a company pro stores. Her stores got by Ebay. Turned him, they're like big commerce or something i. don't even remember, but it was quite comical I. Wonder Jared is working with Alana. Challenging, or is it just police? Fall Tom. No it's absolutely challenging because. We do everything bootstrapped, and that means to us is we sell on everything? We don't take on any money or any investors so basically what that means! We started in seventy square foot room. And then even now We've been sort of growing and morphing and leasing new space ever since and we've had to move a couple times. But right now we're shared office so. Imagine having two kids with your spouse. And not going away from each other at all at any part of a day. You there for breakfast for work. You're there for you know the only thing you're not there. Maybe if you go to the gym or go surfing or takes carton, go to sleep. Yeah, now you know rarely happens when the kids anyway it's. It's a real credit to you because you know in today's Tumultuous Times the. We are very close to each other, no matter who we are where we are and. This does present some challenges. So what are some of the techniques that you you go through? Personally jared. When you find that, you know you need a little spice because I guess we will do it terms. Absolutely for us for I. It's Buydell that everyday. We have our own time. in Soaker me with that looks like is each morning I wake up early. In. We're fortunate enough to have a hot TUB. On the backyard and I do my. You know routine in the hot tub and have some time to myself before I even start to workday. So that's that's a key component. And also if there's waves, I make sure sir once a day not too long, not too short, and if there's not waves I go to the gym and those are two things that really reset. Reset my entire body mind spirit, and without it in, and Elena has her own to that. She does without those you know.

C manager Jergen KLOPP in a message released yesterday. That will bring a tear, not just the eyes of his supporters. The dare I say anyone who cares about the most popular sports league in the world. That's right folks. After a three-month hiatus. The English Premier League is back today. Roger Bennett from men in blazers fills us in on these frantic few remaining weeks. So grab a pint and US as sub optimal tour of English soccer. I'm sorry, English football. I mean it comes. It's Wednesday. June seventeenth. This is ESPN daily. Presented by marathon. Roger! Kim's. Are you relieved? Your any skin daily and not my NFL pod, talking about your beloved quarterback Mitch Trubisky You Know God Love Mitch. trubisky is an incredible pressure to be knowing that your whole life is just destined to pan out to become the answer to a trivia question in about ten years, who was taken ahead of Deshaun Watson Patrick Mahomes. Roger Bennett is suffering bears fan. He's also the CO host of men in Blazers on the NBC. Sports Network and the men in Blazers podcast by just braced for him to end up with the green. Bay Packers, leading them on a fourth quarter drive two feet, my beloved Chicago Bears, and I can't wait for that movement. They'll probably deserve it. And we're not talking about bears football today. The wait is over the English premier league. The most Popular Sports League in the world is back after a one hundred day hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic Roger I'm sure you've been getting your fix from Bundesliga but I have to imagine the return of English. Soccer is hitting a little different for you. One hundred days feels like one hundred years to be candid. I've been staring at squirrels running up trees in the park, and feeling the adrenaline burst of a run through midfield, watching raindrops charge down my window and feeling just an incredible wing-play into play of missed from the primarily, but yes, it's back today with its global ratings I mean in Britain for much of Europe for much of the rest of the world outside of the United States, it's kind of a seismic as the NFL and the NBA rolled into with the Pantheon of heroes and villains to moments of glorious ecstasy, searing dispath fuse with dodgy haircuts snack tattoos. One hundred days off. When are going to have ninety two games scattered almost daily over the next couple of weeks. It's coming back because we love it because we miss it. It's coming back for. Hard news commercial reasons ultimately to an economic decision. It's going to come back and ghost game situation where it's fabulous. It's going to be different. The lack of an audience will have an impact on the football. We watched, but most importantly it is going to be good enough. It's GonNa. Be Great enough to connect us to a ruling global conversation and that's ultimately I think. Think we will miss about sports as our calling them. Ghost Games I hadn't heard that got left the Germans. They have a name for everything. Lay. They Call Them Guy Bela. And that is what they will be. Sam Darnold knows a thing or two about those back to English premier league, so we hit positive with most of the season done with exception of Liverpool they're. They're still to be decided. The top half of the table. Seven teams vying for five spots determine who will qualify for Champions League and Europa League which for those who don't know are the midseason European tournaments to be held next year. Roger Liverpool have clinched Champions League. Spot Manchester City has of course been banned from Champions League for Breaking Financial Fair play rules so that. That spot remains open despite city being second in the League. Right now. Arsenal wolves Chelsea Menu Lester Tottenham Sheffield all in the mix. What are you expecting to see from the top of the table? When the race for Champions League qualification, which is a bit like football's march madness, it's big tournament in which the best teams in the world. You're rail, Madrid, your boss Alana's. Para Sanjay Man's by Munich's compete all. Big English teams won't be in that for brand reasons for competitive reasons for commercial reasons and is. And completely wide open at the bottom of the table. All say English football has some Incorr- ellegation, which is if you watch game of thrones? It's a bit like the moon door. Teams get flung through that in baseball, the worst teams every year like the Orioles in the mall in which is flung out of the major leagues, the mooted, and in that place. We had the Tulsa drillers around rook. Rook Express and that is, it's a searing. It is a haunting. It is a savage palm of the global football tradition, and you have six teams at the bottom who are fighting to avoid what can be economically devastating their revenue roughly hauls flung out. The Premier League is savage for the fan base. One Minute. You are watching your team. Take to the glamorous fields, Manchester United and Arsenal the next. Round Brentford Luton Barnsley barring a miracle the Jewish using Norwich canaries will disappear, but there's five teams Aston. Villa Bouma th what furred and West Ham amongst them, two of which will go with them for the big story line. Meena is Liverpool Football Club. American owned little football. Club owned by the Boston Red SOx owners, F S J and their yearning. They're dreaming of a return to greatness that was once titletown by when I was a kid growing up in Liverpool. Just six points away from lending the title that they have dreamed of then. That is the great storyline of the season. On that note. This Sunday. The team that you root for I'm sorry. I'm getting a producer this side you support. Everton, we'll be squaring off against Liverpool. They are twenty five points clear off the other teams in the League, and there's possibility they can clinch the title at Goodison Park Against Your beloved Everton on Sunday

The Mind Financing The Future
"When powerful people use their advantage to engage in new involuntary transfers of wealth safety or freedom from those too weak to defend themselves. The winners are almost always forced to create an idealism as a cover for their siphoning in simpler terms. These idealisms are actually cover stories or bespoke fig leaves which almost exactly fit. The extraction are taking that they are tailored mask once. This is understood. We realized that to test this theory. Each wave of idealism would have to be matched to a highly specific effective confession for an injustice that pervaded the era in which it was found. This concept of idealism as disguising theft is of course an upsetting cognitive shift get is therefore naturally initially difficult to come to see the waves of idealism that characterized each era that we have lived through not as the best of our aspirations for a better world but rather as the photographic negative of the greed of our own ruling classes for example. The idealism of United States competitiveness was everywhere in the nineteen eighties and early to mid Nineteen Ninety S. At that time it seemed to be about the need for all Americans to pull together and get back into fighting shape as a country looking below the surface however it was not really about the need of managers owners and workers to pull together through shared austerity to reinvigorate American industry. Rather it was a false idealism. That instructed organized American Labor to give up hard won gains that were then not matched by comparable sacrifices from the other groups. Once the United States Labor had been sufficiently humbled in attenuated in its power by the Mid Nineteen Ninety S. The drumbeat of patriotic competitiveness gave way to the post National Davos idealism of a world without borders singing the praises of Financial Inclusion Trade Immigration and philanthropy with the Maudlin sediments of nine hundred eighty five. We are the world as its anthem. The purpose of the Post National Movement was not to include those overseas but instead to allow the wealthy of the industrialized world to break the bonds with their fellow citizens of the working class and to access cheaper labor. Pools abroad using far-flung supply chance likewise the idealism of so-called constructive engagement with governments like communist China's would be seen through this lens as the rationalization for ignoring issues of human rights and strategic risk in such a way as to benefit economically in the short-term selling out American interests in the long-term meanwhile back home in the states the techno Utopian perspective that arose dominate. The Bay area of California held. That information just wants to be free and that now. Transparency is king because privacy is dead perversely as you would expect in this theory. This hippie dippy sounding digital vision is exactly what ushered in the surveillance economy as the platforms became not windows but half silvered mirror through which the social media barons learned every intimate detail about their users. These startups turn techno behemoths. Turned the most intimate personal details of our private lives into their proprietary business. Data which was as far from free or transparent as one could possibly imagine the idealism of gender and identity to fits the exact pattern second wave feminism seemed to be about recognizing the intrinsic worth of women in the workforce but it may also be seen as an employer dream to push out the labor supply curve in such a way as to make the previous single breadwinner household require a second income just to keep pace the politics of identity which caught fire in the wake of the twenty ten. Colorado Senate upset are explained largely by economists. Pm Alana's theory. That identity is the cheapest substitute for the Labor Voting Block which demanded far more significant economic concessions. More bizarrely the strange media ritual of pointing the finger of Islamaphobia at anyone who dares ask about a mass murderer in which the killer triumphantly shouts of the hawk. Bar Emits. Bloody and sadistic mayhem may well be about protecting transfer. Payments from oil-rich monarchies while the official admonition to see the Niqab hit job burqa and clitoridectomy predominantly ethnic differences or symbols of female. Liberation is so absurd to go along way towards establishing the need for some theory. Is this to fill the space. The left-leaning idealism of making housing affordable for all that too many bad loans inflated the housing bubble while the right-leaning Ayn Rand Ian Idealism of self regulating markets practiced by Alan Greenspan allowed the banks to privatize gains while socializing the risks losses. The giving pledge to May well be an attempt to keep governments from clawing back unpaid taxes from carefully sheltered fortunes or establishing wealth and asset taxes in a period of radical inequality. In this sense it can be seen as something of a bargain if I promise to screw over my own children for charity. I hope that you will leave me alone and unquestioned to enjoy my vast and carefully sheltered wealth while I'm alive and as we have just seen with the Biden endorsements from Speaker Nancy Pelosi Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and former Senator Hillary Clinton. The metoo movement appears to be less about sexual assault and more about adding a tool for extra-judicial vigilantism which can be wielded selectively or kept sheath according to taste suffice it to say that. Hashtag believe all women has now given way to hash tag believe convenient women so you may ask. Why bring this up now? Well in my opinion what we need now is someone who is not part of any of the official idealisms. Of course that would have sounded quite weird in isolation if I had simply said that we need an anti Utopian to lead us. Wouldn't we want someone envision a dreamer doer hybrid two point the way? No we want someone who is not signed on for any of these horrible anti patriotic charades from either party. Someone who never believed in free trade free markets nationalism housing for all deregulation competitiveness etcetera etcetera. We need someone who is not closed with Jeffrey Epstein who does not possess significant financial relationships abroad. Additionally someone alienated by both the hardline pro-life pro-choice perspectives. Would be perfect for where most Americans are today since the time of Nixon. We've been in an era of predatory idealism with our best impulses used against us from both right and left. It is now time to get back to the hard work of cleaning up from two disastrous generations of failed business people politicians reporters in professors and perhaps most importantly we need to flush our dependence on near totalitarian communist China out of our system before it is too late

"You can't judge it. You have to just let the soaring happen on the pages right okay. So I was doing that daily loads of that and I was making sure to spend time outdoors and and like workout and stuff to still continue dancing and all that shit because it keeps me happy and I knew that comes. Those Motor Boys Again. Round around may go this way any people right now. Yeah like I I. You know if you're an essential worker if you're going grocery store these guys are moving the guy on the phone. He's he's been hanging out with somebody. Moving people are moving right now. I think there's just a lot of we really are noticing the people that are moving because moving right now is like a red flag but also I have friends who are moving. Yeah I know but I think. Also there's there's generally the same amount of people moving other times. I don't think the focus has been as their tastes. I don't think you're going to really attention to someone in your friend group like you hear from one of your friends like I'm moving and that's a big deal the colour show where you're moving to but it's like literally right now. I have two friends who are like. Oh I'm moving. Be Right back. And it's like what? I didn't even know you were moving. I didn't even. When was that session made and are you? Okay and why are you doing it right now? And if it's because it's like Shit's getting tougher and got to get out of where we are because we can't afford it anymore than that makes total fucking sense and I get that. I wonder if for that reason because I'm sure there are but I thought there was a legal thing where you can't be a victim so it's more like try to talk to your landlord if that's the case it's true but Even if there is a freeze on like rent and stuff like that in certain areas people still have to like eventually pay that and right now. If people aren't working it's going to be incredibly difficult to eventually pay that so I know people who are like the little details people are like home. I would be able to find. Wasn't here just because I would love to be home anyway wasn't here. I'm sorry for interrupting No problem anyway so doing all that and the reason that I think it's important to talk about. Those practices is because any time. I've ever gotten something I wanted. That's how I got it weird. Sure Magic but So my first job I got was through that process so I was writing out for me when I get really open about what I want. I can start going into more details. And it just naturally flows because this is like weird manifesting talk but if you go into details restricting way. It's not good. It's not helpful but if you go into them in a freeing opening way it is so I'm not going to go into detail on those details but you're talking about your first youtube job. Yes but I was doing that so as I was writing these things out daily I got really got a really clear vision and understanding of what I wanted to be working. And I've always really loved everything that's new media. Because I like feeling at the forefront of the way culture is shifting and how people are consuming in thinking and growing and developing and that really fascinates me and I think you really get to observe that in new media at currently new media is like online content Youtube snapchat. Whatever all that ships new media at the time it was more just like web video so I think it was probably like two thousand twelve ish. I'm talking about no maybe earlier. Two Thousand Ten two thousand eleven yet because Youtube was two thousand seven or something. Youtube itself was started in two thousand six. But it wasn't like a who wasn't a work place in two thousand and six I'm talking about my story. I think we're in two thousand eleven at this point early. Two thousand eleven thousand ten okay so and I was getting little jobs. That weren't really much here and they're doing like photo related stuff assisting whatever but what was your first like legit job so I'm getting to that so what I had so basically I got. I was at the same time. Going on. All the Indy media industry websites for jobs. And just like applying to things left and right every day. I'd spend a good chunk of time. Applying to jobs stuttered edited out like okay. If you lied to twenty five jobs you're as good or whatever So applying to jobs and during that other shit so I was applying to loads of jobs and I heard back from one of them and they were like great. We love to have you come in for an interview and the job description was so fucking vague. But whatever I was applying to shit was just like we need a shooter editor for something I feel like. That's the job posting that ended up going out for decades. Yeah after like starting a couple years after this one vince neal. That's the same what we're looking for editor poster but at the time you gotTa know that was a that was not something you had read too much right right right right I'm just saying it's funny now that that's like an everyday job postings shirt. I mean that's not the part that's vague. I mean that's telling you what you're doing. Sure but the vague part was like for fashion ish content period like fashion content. Okay for what for who for what type of great got it like all right you into fashion and stuff the time yeah. I almost went into fashion instead of films so you were very shis so fashion. I wonder what it is. Why just were I just was follow my feelings and I felt apply to it so I did and I got so. I got this response. That was like great. We love this stuff and I had done some things that were kind of fashiony. So that aligned Come in for an interview dotted Aso. I came in for an interview and it was with Jenny. Fancy worked at maker studios and we. I went really interview and they were like cool. Can you do these things? I don't really remember the interview. It went fine like sure. Cool and she was like great. We'll get back to you. Thanks whatever and I remember thinking when I went in for the interview the job I went to the location. The job was going to be at and it was in Venice beach and it had it was like in this specific area Venice. It was in this specific zip code. Even it was this specific type of content. Had like there were like fifty things on this list that aligned with exactly what was written in my journal and this is the only job that had lined like this. This was the only job that actually gave me an interview at this point. The rest just didn't respond And I was just like okay so I'm getting this job because this is what I have written out and I did not know a job with all these qualifications existed but here I am sitting in one location and realizing everything is this collectively and there are a few things. I didn't quite know that I had journaled out because I didn't know as much about the job yet so I just had this feeling of like I guess I might get this job so I went home and she didn't. I didn't hear back from them for. I think it was like three or four weeks and I was like well. Maybe I didn't get the job then because I don't they normally right you back before that And then three or four weeks later. She's like hey you got the job. Jesus sorry took yet to give to you like I mean what I now know is like it's fucking new media and there were like you know. Oh do even WanNa hire someone yet. Maybe the budget didn't go. Maybe the Youtube grant did come through yet or maybe we're going to completely change everything we're doing because that's how you was at the time like. Oh never mind or maybe what? We need to stay. If someone already working here could do that. Absolute we've asked one of them but they just all those things happened. So that's how I got the job at maker and then knowing I got the job at that was maker maker and so this was so this was was Kassim there at the time. And he's one of the ORIG- he's one of the founders. So did you know who any of these people were no? I didn't know anything about Youtube as far as earning money off of it. I didn't I feel like I had faintly heard that that existed but didn't really believe it or think it worked that way like I was like. Oh sure if it may gets you a different job or something. I didn't really know that world existed at all but I was very aware of the world of digital media like you know magazines. Were doing a lot of leg video content at the time that they would host on v. meal or something and put on their websites So I knew short form media for a company that paid you existed. I didn't know about you know about these youtube celebrities or whatever Came in and had the the job and so were you like once you were in it. Where like Oh this is where I wanna live now like or were you just like visits. Were all the money's coming from so I'm just GonNa stay here I think you and I both know there was no money coming in my view totally but even at the time. I'm sure any money was money right well. In Hindsight this is not a jab against maker. This is this is a realization of myself not understanding how business and jobs work. The title of this episode is going to be a long talk shit about makers well. In in hindsight I was really paid like Shit for longer than I should have been her. You know there's some period for like this is a brand new industry and we are a startup company. And we are kind of figuring out what we're going to do and we're GonNa pay you really little but that's just what we can do right now. I want the job you can take it or not and so at the beginning of things like that's the thing that happens. I think people are pretty used to the startup conversation. These days that it kind of goes like that and you have to just be like all right. I'm investing for the longer term of this job but I kind of allowed that to be consistent for quite a few years for me but did you have other options at the time. Either you like you can make more money and FICO this if I go elsewhere I've never been money minded and I frankly do not have a lot of education when it came to money how to handle money or like even job stuff like what I do all the emotional things about jobs like when you go into an interview. This is how you talk to an a person in an interview. But I didn't know anything about like after six months you should. If you're doing a good job talk about getting a raise or like if you are doing this type of thing. Here's a way to to do more projects for them. Or here's a way you know. I didn't know anything about being in a job so you were being. Were you being helped to live here? Yeah Okay Lot..

"But I've talked endlessly about how I started in this fucking thing industry. I don't even know if it's an industry is an industry. Yeah I don't know I've talked about it a million times but Joe had a great point. That's a very interesting topic and I'm very glad you're beard coli. I just like that you use it I do use. It looks cute. We'll my beards getting bigger of. I'm definitely getting a quarantine beard. I'm so sorry to tangent us. No that's your gentle humour to John Joel's But anyway Let's talk about. Yeah so but I've talked endlessly about it so I'm actually pretty fascinated. I know we've talked about it but you probably don't know that but I don't know that much she asked so Alana Fikus you have quite a history in the Youtube space and you've worked with right a few youtube names So why don't you talk about how you started in this industry and then give us maybe like a couple of interesting stories if you would? Oh and we just Kinda do a little history of Alana. I love this. I have an album on. Facebook called history. One Oh wonderful so do I owe. It was before we bet. Oh that's right Okay history of me in the Youtube Space Lab. Did you get started like what how to film school? I warranty for school and after film school I was thinking. Oh Shit now what do I do? How do I get into doing anything? And what did you WANNA do out of school? I used to think this was a flaw. I wanted to do a lot of different things and I couldn't make I didn't have one specific direction. Choice I used to think that was a flaw but then I got older and realize that will never leave me. That is always how I will feel about life and I have just found it to be an asset. Louise it can be helpful for me. Yep so I I was feeling like oh so many things I wanna do and I still don't know all through college and archaeologist has What I did out of college was really great. If anybody's in this position is I had set up like I think it was like six months out of college. I had another little course I was GonNa do that was I picked one that was in Europe. And fortunately mom allowed me to do this because my grandma paid for some of my college. Thank you grandma. Shot TO GRANDMA GRANDMA. She saves money from when I was little and surprise. Showed it to us later and it was like. Oh my God. You're Mama's Yeah. It was so nice. It obviously was a really big deal because it allowed me to not take loans thankfully and what was her name your Mama's Mama Katie Oh Katie Katie. While she was married quite a few times. So okay we'll just call it. Katie need to talk so bad as names So you went to your so. I had set up a little course to do six months after I finished college and I finished in December so six months after for me would I also did a school Went to a school where you could do it all in three years if you did like a year round school basically so. I did that also hopes to save money so I felt like you know you feel like you need to allow yourself to do things that are going to spend money when you don't have a job yet around school like you don't have a summer break. That's the same thing Owen did at Brooks. We went to the same school so he would have done it to unless he took a summer. I guess I wasn't aware that I remember hanging out with all the all the friends and stuff in the summer to they're still in town last summertime. Ange and ticks and yet and again just like you do in the summer. Even when you're in school all right well anyway. Those sweats are driven down my elbow all the way down to my wrist edge of my seat about it all right so so. I set up for myself to do another additional course that was a little bit more specified and direct and really different also really different from the things. I was doing in school which really helped me. I had all the three years.

What Joe just want us to talk about this because it involves his wedding and he wants us to talk through what I doubt.

They're just not distance from their motorbike. Is I mean I get it I respect it? You gotta get outside more often when you can absolutely I agree with you. It would just be responsible. We're not through this thing that it's annoying for us. Who have to hear them more often. No I'm okay with that. I mean it's just it's annoying when you're like doing podcast.

We go and we bake this banana bread. I'm doing the main baking. Steve is my assistant because he's helping with the mixing. If y'all know assistant crunching up bananas et Cetera is not fun for your arms and especially when you're using a spoon well because many tools we don't have cook in tools ordering people so we didn't have so many C. was using a spoon in a mixing bowl. Anyway we we. I crushed like three bananas in a Mixing Bowl with spoon. Yeah and it came out them up for smoking pooffy. Do you know what's harder than that. Crushing up a tomato potatoes to make Mashed potatoes like the literal mashing potatoes even with a really nice tool. It's ten times harder than mashing a banana. I'll tell you who said I'm not a player. I just crush la anyway anyway. We had a great Saturday. We made the banana bread and it was the best I've ever had eight the absolute living fuck out of it with salted butter. It was warm as fuck. It came right out of the oven. And I'll tell you what ladies and gentlemen it was the best either of us has ever had G Freebie B. I ever had in my life and I've never had that many glee freebies.

Everything's off silent scene. I just kept looking at each other just like the magic of moment is my favorite Disneyland Parade. Sure we totally looked at each other. Just believe an absolute surprise off love fulfilled feeling. I have rarely had such as just like lengthy time. Feeling that blissful. It was perfect it was just and then you take another bite. And you're like surely this can't beat the last and it does. It was on how was perfect. There is unstoppable. Smiles was perfect because perfect Anyway we integrate Saturday. And you're the one that told me talk about it. I know you'RE GONNA end. No I'm glad you did. I just wanted to talk about wanted you to talk about something. Went to go. Get Your fucking sunglasses.

Yeah you know that episode of between two ferns when Shirley's thoroughness the gas. Yeah and she's has that sweat drip and she leans in and whispers into Zach alvanos's ear about the sweat dripping between her legs. Yeah Yeah that's happening to me from my armpit down my loose sleeved arm. All the way up out here and I'm like reaching into wipe it right here. It's very hall. The way down to here. Suddenly a became the summer overnight. Yeah and it's not great it's Tamie but The reason why it's not great. It's because the A C's blasted now which I love me some as see. I think it's the greatest. Modern invention of our time truly Beta by Funk. Air Conditioning is the greatest invention of the modern age. Okay fight me. Bro But You know it doesn't it. It Ain't free kids. Yeah all right. Well listen I wanted talk to you a little bit you were GonNa. You're starting out by saying you spoke to Joe and the tars morning and Joe was like. Oh Shit we didn't do the podcast and I was like. Oh it's Sunday and it's supposed to go up tomorrow for patrons and So I was like I can do this time. I knew that time Jones like I knew this time.

Now he's social distancing even on the phone from US. Extra careful is being extra careful. I hope it serve No it was like nine and it's Sunday is probably sleeping or some shit but The point I'm trying to make is hot. We're trying to figure this shit out more likely. Yes but we're trying to figure this shit out and I was like. Oh you know what I'll just record it with Alana and we'll do another like corn team Bay podcast. That's too many high five. I love him. We don't need to keep high fiving on the podcast okay. High fives was just for us. It is just for that. It was a special thing alone. I have gotten into the habit of high fiving during what movie? Honest how this started along with your mom. I know this is an age old tale of when I feel very close to somebody and I'm watching a movie and the moments in the movie excite me. I will make the person next to me that I feel very bonded and close to high. Five me usually. It's my mom and she just looks at me. My favorite part of this process is when the person you're going to high five looks just goes. It's like excited and confused at why your hand expects that many hi fi. You're watching a movie. Nobody's and if they don't want to offer you the five I picked their hand up and I put it up so that I can find it on truly by the end of the movie. That's the only thing you're doing is picking their hand up enforcing a five I. It brings joy it makes you happy makes the other person happy. It makes me so happy. Can I be honest with you? If you don't like it. I know I lying love. Of course I'd love it. Of course I love it all right but I love it for a very specific reason because of my excitement well yeah of course of course but the other the most important reason is is that you're doing it not in a in a very serious way. I'm doing it because I just feel I feel the actual burst of fun going out. Express it through a high five. You also know how ridiculous it is and you're aware of that. Yeah and it's funnier because of that but if we were on date to and you did that and it wasn't because it wasn't like on ironically if it wasn't because if I'm not doing it ironically just I know you're not doing ironically but you're aware of it. You're aware of how ridiculous it is is. Everyone should do things that they feel a ridiculous even if they are loving urge to do it of course and more power to you know God bless you for it but the point. I'm trying to make is there. Are Many people out there who aren't doing that because they know it's also ridiculous. They're doing it because they think it's cool to do that or human to say I don't care if you're doing it for that reason. Every bit of my heart is with you. Go for it. You should too like judge judgmental person because of it if we were all saying. I'm just saying if we were on data to okay and your high five. Was you thought that was cool. And it and not a funny kind of ridiculous and now you're getting to something different things go by if I was doing it out thinking it was cool the entire experience. It'd be different now even next year. Whatever not date. Yeah Yeah I'm not going to be not cool to be doing it because you have to do. That's what I was. You feel the love bursting from your soul needs to express. Yeah like I came over for the first time for us to hang out in person and we were watching a movie and he put his hand out for a high five. I'd be like Oh man is GonNa WanNa High Five. Well I I'd be like okay. I'll high five and why not? I love a high five but if it kept happening I'd be like Oh we're never hanging out again. I have no shame but the fact that first of all your beautiful woman and you're not the reason I didn't I was going did say it wasn't just because you're a beautiful woman you get away with. Had a whole list of interrupted me from because you're a beautiful woman and you're very self aware and you're very funny and you're very silly and very down for so many things. Then it's one hundred percent excusable. I love it. I think it's great. I'm so glad my favorite Hartfield thing is excusable old. That just shut off. Excuse slapping again. Sorry if the video went out. Recently method of recording is not worth is.

Every year might have been early early January or very after right after Christmas or something early January or right after Christmas which would be late. December.

We should make an album together and he was like absolutely down you. Just tell me when and the same way absolutely. I'm down to hear that album. You tell me with Jolie's make it. It's a dream I WANNA HEAR IT I. I used to have a really good relationship with this amazing guitar player Guy. I won't say his name because the how ru able to locate this person in in my and it's not I'm not throwing shade or anything. But we ooh spill the tea and we're very. We had a special dynamic together and we wrote really fun. Improvise songs together. I'm not talking about Oh and doesn't play. The Guitar is a No. He doesn't he certainly does not and So me and this guy were really great Comedy team together and wrote some great improvise songs. Now you had the best times the best musical times of my life just jamming with this guy. But he's now gone off to do his own thing and he's not dead or anything but we can't work together anymore and I get that feeling a little bit from clay. Not that he's GonNa go away. We're not going to work together anymore. Hope not but that we improvise really well together and some magical stuff. And he's so musically talented and he's got his own band music shit going really. Yeah And His music's great and he's a great musical artist and And so I feel very much the same when I play with him like I felt with my old pal who we grew apart from our we grew apart from each other but we made some really fun stuff and I can only imagine what Kibben I could come up with. It's a special unique thing that you have found in each other and I think you should go forth and I think you're album. Art should be a maple leaf and a strawberry. I love that idea because I'm a very yeah. You're an oxidizer strawberry and he's able lease a maple leaf that's Q. is on that's just. I don't know if that'll make a cool album cover but I think it's cool. It's an interesting concept. Yeah I like it good. Call your band. The leaf in the strawberry maple strausbaugh Strawberry Pie. The maple strawberry. That is just fun to put mouth. Were Joe Joe Pool. Strawberry sounds so good. Joe Joe Joe Joe and the maple strawberries. Who's Joe Joe? I don't know who cares. Well you know Gioja the singer you should just get her all the buck. Joe Is to look at me like I know that anyway. Sneeze real but yeah anyway. I'll I'm done sucking off Klay. But he's a great kid and I'll tell you what every once in a while. Some people come along Lake Clay and will and there's a lot of I mean you know there's others but but will comes to mind too but these young talented kids kind of like come into my tractor beam and then we become close friends and then we make cool shit together and I really feel like that with Kip. Which is kind of given a bigger kiss? I know you're talking about exactly. I have unique relationships like that. And that's why I'm saying it is unique when it happens. I grab my Sonny's wow you really going. I'm like sneezing now. There's so much irate and do what you gotta do but tell everybody hotel everybody about our perfect yesterday. Okay okay go ahead. Yesterday was the Saturday. Hello everybody we're getting intimate here because it's just me and you. Yesterday was a perfect Saturday and I'm very excited to report what happened. We WOKE UP. Woke up late slept in. Ooh felt so very good. We'll go pat a lovely day. Guess what the son was in a perfect spot to town on the balcony. Oh don't I love it? I came out to the balcony. I usually am the one cooking in general between US Gourmet this quarantine but Steve got inspired and said. I'm going to cook a great breakfast. So Steve's cooking up the most delicious bacon some Hamson like thick juicy nice quality ham some leftover veggies in a deliciously spiced way. Oh my sonny's and he did the perfect breakfast thing where he cooked for him what he likes and cooked meals. I like which I like a meat protein and veg. That's what I like all the time. Unfortunately I'm not a huge breakfast meats person because I just breakfast food prison. 'cause like that but Steve loves put it on the record.

"Good guys into the valley cast This one is a special one. We're back to kind of like our quarantine cuties episodes and today is Lana and I and were on the balcony of my palatial estate apartment in the San Fernando Valley so if you hear car noises or birds or honking horns or screaming. Kovic nineteen maniacs. It's because we're out on my balcony but it's such a beautiful day and also the apartment is shit. It's garbage shit. Oh thank you for doing that. Yeah that's probably nicer anyway. Welcome to the valley cast me. Oh thank you. We're joined again by Alana. Fix My beautiful wonderful girlfriend. Thank you and Joe and I were talking this morning. A little bit about Well first of all. It's Saturday Sunday. It's Sunday God. It was already hard for me to remember what day it was. And now that I that I am in a quarantine. It's ten times worse. Yes aim anyway. So it's Sunday and usually we record. The valley cast on like Wednesday or Trumpets Day crump. It's Day which is Thursday for you non octogenarians but a beard procreates day. Nothing beats it. Be a thrill. Oh Yeah we got to talk about beard slowly going insane together quarantine but we're having a great time and the other day we were talking about. God knows what but it led us to beard pill which is well it right. Yeah but we don't like what the fuck are they saying? I gotTA say right. 'cause it's April beard you explain it. Oh this April is the month of beer pill because we are in our homes of growing Baird Brill's Alana Beard. Looks Great. Thank you? You can't see it because the shot is west up.

Animal Slander! Debunking 'Birdbrained' And 'Eat Like A Bird'
"All right first up bird brained again. People say this when they're implying somebody needs to get it together or they're scattered. Yeah clearly not a compliment right so for more on this you talked to Corinna newsom. Hello Hi Emily. Yeah Hey how are you? I'm good how are you good? Good my name's emily. Corinne is a Grad student at Georgia Southern University studying birds and before that she was zookeeper she's got a deep well of experience to draw upon for today's episode. What's your relationship with that phrase bird brained? I usually get a little bit offended when I hear the word bird brained as a person who spent a lot of time training birds For the purpose of education and showing off natural behaviors. I've gotten a chance to look very closely. At how birds think and understanding the way that they think and being very impressed with their cognition and so when I hear people use bird brained as an insult. I am. Dan Personally insulted. You gotta stand by Your burs. Starting off strong. I mean you gotta set the tone. Okay trusted expert. Witness Carina newsom approaching the bench. Hit us with that sweet sweet evidence. Carina SAYS BIRDS ARE OVERALL PRETTY SMART. Cognition depends on the species of course but birds in the Corbett family like crows and Ravens are wicked smart. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah. They can memorize faces. They were Super Cool. Experiments on that in some crows can make tools which is usually associated with primates. Correct and you know what other birds are. Smart Parrots. They are incredibly social animals. They are also very skilled at mimicry. At recognizing even memorizing patterns At picking up on behavioral cues from humans. Corinna says that parents are tough pets precisely because they're so smart you have to give them mental stimulation and if you don't they're going to occupy themselves which oftentimes may end up looking like biting your furniture tearing apart your shoes wreaking havoc on your home here. It's need constant mental stimulation or else. It's just havoc and all of this has to do with connections inside their brains. Do I smell little data? Kwon Oh you. Do you better believe you do so a couple of years ago. This study came out that looked at brains across different types of birds songbirds parrots various birds of prey and the study looked closely at this part of the brain called the medial spira form nucleus which helps connect the Sara Bellum to the Tel and south one. Zero Bhalla is at the back of the brain deals with muscle movements balance. That kind of stuff. Do you know what that is yet? Yeah I know stuff kwong. Okay fine well do you know at the Telegraph. Alana's I yes. Go read do go right ahead. What is it okay. All right Gimme second. There's a lot of stuff in the brain Yeah it's this really intricate set up structures in the brain that are required for some of the most complex and evolved functions. Yeah you clearly. Google that With I can't you're breaking up on going through a tunnel. Ma'am you're in a closet? You can't be gone through the same time all right anyway. Moving on the key here. Is that the bridge connecting these two parts. The medial spire form. Nucleus and birds is a mark of strong cognitive abilities and parrots have an unusually large medial spiral form nucleus for their size so the birds have small low noggins but really advanced Lil Naga. Oh yeah good point. That was my follow up question to this research. Carino was talking about two and so despite the fact that birds have like very very small brains Usually like the size of a walnut forest and even larger Brain Bird. Those brains are the most effective at packing neurons compared to any other brains including Mammalian brains. So you hear that birds punching above their weight when it comes to neural density honestly. I'm not surprised. So some birds have about as many neurons in therefore brain than like a primate so because their brain has some complex folding and the the neurons are closer physically closer together inside of the brain. They can have a large number of neurons accomplishing a lot of the same goals that animals with bigger brains and their but fewer neurons have. Okay Kwong the verdict on bird brained. Oh you know what it is Mattie. Do I even need to say it slander? Getting so good that you taught me how could Lord okay? Okay my turn so I looked into the phrase eat like a bird. Oh yeah very curious about this. People will say that it suggests. Someone doesn't eat very much that they're like peckish right. Which you know the official. Npr shortly position is that just. Don't comment on how much or how little somebody eats you know what I mean. Generally speaking yeah mine. You're on food business. Yes so okay. Let us start our examination of eat like a bird by considering the simple hummingbird. Do you know how they eat. Deer Kwan no no I do not dear Mattie but I fear but I fear you are about to tell me in excruciating detail first of all let me start off by saying you're welcome second introduce you to Alejandro Trico. He is an assistant professor of biology at the University of Washington on curator of birds at the Burke Museum of the University of Washington. But before that when he was a graduate student at the University of Connecticut he was part of one of my favorite bird. Eating related experiments ever so humming. Birds have really long tongues that dart out to get nectar and for a long time scientists. Thought that the tongue worked like a tiny tiny little tube so small the nectar. Kinda just shoots up the tongue on its own by what's called capillary action Ali in his boss Margaret Ruby. The did not by this capillary action. Theory Oh We were discussing. How the equations and the predictions from those capillaries don really made sense in terms of what the actual the hummingbirds in nature look like. But here's the thing on one does not simply eyeball a hummingbird tongue. These little are as thin as a fishing line and they dart in and out of the beak at like fifteen to twenty times per second. Whoa so to solve these problems. What we devise were tiny transparent flowers with flat sides so we could film through it and see the action happening on. We needed high speed video because it's happening so fast so we were filming between a thousand and two thousand frames per second just to see how long would interact with the nectar. So cool all right so. They made little glass flowers so they could film through them. That's that's pretty genius. Yeah and what they saw kwong. It changed the Hummingbird game. What we saw is that the Humbert on when he touches the nectar. I the portion that is inside the liquid on falls on it has little fringes on those tubes on those open up. Oh so it definitely isn't just a static little tube no not even close as the tongue is shooting out of the beak. It's compressed by the beak but when the tip of tongue hits the nectar it splits into two like a little snake tongue and those tips. They have these little flaps that hoping an those flaps fill up with nectar. That is so amazing.

"Itself an act of being like I'm invading your space now and I'm letting you know that I think this about you sexually which is a smaller version of having it's the mini microscopically smaller version of having sexually before that reason. I don't think we're ever going to come to a Utopia. Were all of these. Things aren't happening and that everyone is sort of enlightened perfectly. Yeah But I do think that you can separate the impulse from the action and in a way that you don't feel like you're going to have your entire life cancelled as a result of it. Yeah well said Elliot's yeah no applause for that. Nope but I do want to say or great episode. This was we jumped around too many different serious and not so serious topics and I think it was a wonderful and Alana thank you for bringing your beautiful brain so thank you so much bad. And I'd love. We'd love to have you back to talk more about it because obviously we have a lot more to say. We should have a girl here because I bet she she'd have interesting things to Greece. Greece's stomach was hurt but otherwise another time she would have all sorts of really. I'm sure she does many stories. You'd have shut down. It would be cool to just maybe get like an all girl. Version of the valley cast at some point. Where you know you could just talk about whatever only girls. Yeah One guy wouldn't be there why not. We'll have meeting about. Why the fuck not sounds like a different on figuring very articulate and I love your thoughts and do you want to plug anything my dearest nevertheless but it's not out anywhere documentary and the empowerment project.

Tons of cool stuff coming and Elliott Grace's episode of tales from the Internet is coming and it's GonNa be so great guys. It's just exciting. We're working really hard. We're we're making sure we can handle it. Were like gonNA bring in like new. People TO HELP US. And we're really those part of the big risks are. Are you know jumping headfirst into this new era of the valley folk and really just putting all on the table and and doing everything we can to to build this thing back up there? We had a very big blessing. Happen in Halloween around Halloween where we went from being so comfortable that we were good. If we just kept going right then what happened? Put us in a place of discomfort that I think is bringing the best out. We were just taking a little bit of time. We were too comfortable relied too heavily on nostalgia. Yeah and now. We're just like well you know we're new now and it's different now and But we're GONNA make it even better. Yeah it's gambling is that it's going. Oh we may not get to have this job forever. So we're going to do everything we WANNA do right. Absolutely very not yet.

Comments have been so energizing soul. You have no idea how. Nice Yeah. It's so insane wonderful. Everyone's been so wonderful. Yeah it I think we finally come through the like the worst of it as far as like shitty comments and backlash negatively and anger and and And all that and now we're just kind of in the Shit happened. But we're looking into the future because it's all we can do area and everyone's been so sweet and wonderful and supportive and the comments section and all the New York shows have just been making me so happy and shed little tears of happiness. Because everybody's just been so supportive and I just WanNa thank you guys so anyway that was kind of like housekeeping and my topic so I'll just shut up and sit back now and Let's just get into this coast to coast the coast on through baby. Let's just get comfy. And listen to some wonderful vocal stylings from Alana ficus or Elliott Morgan. Sa- guys let's Brendan. Who's got a topic? Well thank you Alana unless you go first okay. This is about Becca. And the fact that she's always in the Trivia thing and she always knows all the answers conspiracy behind that. I think that she's actually either part of the deep state or she's a `institution Trivia. Russia is a Russian bought yet and which makes sense. Because it's kind of a weird screen. Name Becca yes. Yeah yeah it doesn't make sense in Russian did Goo means I am Russian is what it says. I am rush it up. You don't believe me. Look it up I got my haircut yesterday. And the hairstylist is that. I go to hit my hair guy. I love dearly. He it's excuse me head better salon in Studio City I guess or Sherman Oaks. But he's a shadow great guy. Yeah I do want plug in because I've seen it so low interest. Good Harry hard to find good hair with guy guy good hair. It's True Good Guy. Good hair doing good hair on guy de doing good hair for guy on grey when you find the guy that's good air with guy good guy who go you stick with that so. We started talking about conspiracy theories yesterday. That was the only link by the way to the back of the thing. That was thanks. That's our own Anderson State of trusting nothing but I I went down a rabbit. Hole of some conspiracy theories a little bit and It's always fun and I want to know what y'all's thoughts are on conspiracy theory which ones you like which ones you don't which ones you think. True which ones you think you're nuts Some of the ones that I always am perpetually fascinated by are right now. The Big One is the Jeffrey Epstein One which is seen it and kill himself. Yeah and then The other one I always really like is the The PIZZA THE PIZZA GATE CONSPIRACY. Pan really good stuff there. Which Pizza Gate is from Chuckie CHEESE ARE KNOWN WAY. Less Fun again. It all comes down to pet a file a lot. I was so I was getting my hair and I was like getting something happens. We can just get so much power and so much money that you just become a pedophile. And then we're talking about like because it seems like a lot of these people weirdly. That's like their goto vice and it's very strange and then he was like well. If you have that much money in that much power you have access everything and then you run out of things and so obviously the thing. That's the most forbidden is the thing that you're GonNa want because it's the only thing that you can't have So it's like the law. Prohibition what are you got along? I feel a little differently because although there are it seems like every rich white male ends up being a pedophile or every pedophile ring. Exposed ends up being filled with rich white males also. How many people were molested as a child by just a relative of average means? Yeah and so. I think there's actually a larger amount. Were head of FIA Layer. That are not only rich. White is a the power money just gives you access to the stuff everybody else can. Those are the ones who are perpetuating. The like industry of pedophile 's instead of just terrible thing in person to some don't the infrastructure of infrastructure is certainly good businessmen or creating a good infrastructure for their terrible thing as far as like when you when you think about yes Like because even in the priesthood. There's like a lot of Brian to yeah. I don't think it's just Dell relegated to the upper people not at all. It's so weird. How it does end up being them. It's such a strange. It's such a foreign idea to me. The thank God. He's right. Yeah and IT'S A it's a fascinating but anyway so the conspiracy theory thing. I'm incredibly skeptical of all of them. Because I don't I think you can go down a wormhole with it and I think I don't think people should trust their brains to be able to decipher most things just based on. I think we want to believe certain things and we want to believe that. There's the moon landing didn't happen or that. All these things were staged or crisis actors and I think it gives people a sense of security. You know to satiate the chaos. But there's some weird conspiracy theories that have turned out to be yell at the the Epstein. One is interesting. Because it's like it's the most current created conspiracy rediscovered. This is the guy who's Epstein was. He had this place called pedophile island. Which is which was. I don't think it was all that ever story from the Internet named that right Internet Alita Express was the other thing right right but yeah but he'll supposedly he he had a he he he had this private island that His him in his elite friends could play on essentially play off and stay away from prying eyes and could do literally whatever they wanted to and unfortunately that involves children and terrible things and he's also not the kind of person that seems like he would kill himself which I feel like is always kind of a bad argument because we don't seem like they would kill themselves often do and so I don't think it's but soundly seemed like the crazy thing you ate fish. He's the one who was house arrested at an office or something. And then you know I just want the story of him themself. Because Yeah how? He killed himself in prison a prison. That hadn't had a suicide and over ten years and he was supposedly. I could be completely wrong here so I don't take me whatever. I'm just piecing stuff together right as saying but then they were like something with the guards. I think there were two guards. And both of them fell asleep at the same time rabbit or were they had supposedly would have had to have done that for him to kill himself Just like incredibly unlike the conspiracy is that did he did he. Did he kill himself or did he get murdered in prison? And he's a pedophile a rich white pedophile who has dirt on all most powerful Kiddos. Yes and was about to be on trial and that trial or that whole case would have led to the reveal of all of these like names of yeah potentially including like Bill Clinton and and to me I. I can't remember who else Harvey Weinstein might have been in there. Trump trump a lot of like super high level. Political trump wasn't Bloomberg was Your name it's not believe that anybody in the book was associated but it was definitely like this guy is incredibly well connected and so the idea is that somebody came in turn stadium and believe it. I believe it too. I believe it's. It's it's difficult to be like like skepticism. Skepticism doesn't hold up as well as being like no out. I mean it's just like it's there's so many factors that that are just like they have to be incredibly It like basically everybody would have to be doing their job wrong for just that one day for that him to actually have been able to kill himself in that cell. But that's also how how these how the description of these things are set up as they talk whoever's writing these articles are perpetuating the myth not myth said sets everything up in a way where it seems like absolutely. This has to be what happened. It's look at all these reasons that it must have been this way but if you hear someone who's argument is on the opposite side. They can interject things that you didn't even know were Things that existed in that space switch so like surely we don't know the whole story and we probably never will and frankly our opinions on this don't matter that's why it's fun to play with conspiracy theories like who cares your thoughts on aren't going to change it. I my fun thing is he. Got Murdered exactly. And it's fun and we're not. It's not saying that we're not trying to prove anything doesn't matter what you said about the Someone can say something else that totally changes. Everything reminds me of the analogy of like the elephant and the The wise men or blind man elephant the blonde one. One Guy Touches the the tail. And it's like Oh an elephant looks like a snake touches or The trunk in when Lincoln. The only thing says it looks like a trunk and they're all touching different parts of the elephant. They all think they know what the element looks like. But then you realize that they're just touching certain part of it so it's like great then. You see all the evidence about Jeffrey up senior like we'll all of this thing is things that we know. Looks like X Y and Z until we might just exactly. Yeah and we don't know Yup so it's it's a fascinating a fascinating yet. All the conspiracy. Theories are very fun and very crazy and we had a few more. Yeah I li- We're all GonNa talk about our favorite right okay. I like area fifty one sure. Yeah I think that's really fun conspiracy theory like they're aliens there. There's a spaceship their staelens crash land in area fifty one. Yes or no well yes or no. Oh I think so. I'd like to think so I think so too. Yeah I think. Just there's been so much hype about covering it up and so much military interaction again. My opinion doesn't matter but I'm going to go. Yes it was like. Oh no I really I keep I want I want to believe. I've mentioned this book while ago and there was like I can't remember the name of it. Someone in the comments. Please help me here but there was like this general this Army or navy general. I must have been army but military some kind of military general who retired.

Beca to and I think we're we're running a little low on Intros so if you listening are so inclined and trust me. You don't need very many musical skills. There's a lot of very there's A. There's a spectrum of skills showcased with these user. Submitted Valley cast intros. Yes and no one is expected to be any kind of modern Mozarts or anything like that. It's it's even better when it is terrorists so much but also it's really good when it's really good. That's great And if we don't have interest we can't do the podcast anymore. Yeah so as soon as we're out of Intros this show is over dot com slash the valley those of you. That are listening to this before we get in I'd like to do a little housekeeping if that is okay with you Elliott. I love that first of all. I wish you had me further away from the sound of someone knocking on the door. Going ask you play. That should go into the soundboard. We don't do it very often but that could be very fun to do great But I actually before housekeeping even. LemMe not be rude We have special guest today. Is My girlfriend is.

Thank you got a hood and I came. Okay Oh it's it's it's annoying when people complain about the weather. I think it's annoying most of the time but the rain in L. A. Does MAKE PEOPLE INCREDIBLY STUPID. And so there's an added level of danger called being in. La where you're just surrounded by bad drivers all the time drivers in this morning. Yeah they're already pretty hard to maintain good driving in L. A. And then when it rains it just goes all in with the rain combined with people staying home because of the corona and then also light so that makes light traffic. Which makes everybody extra crazy. Yeah but but we're always safe but before we start getting to ten gentle. I just wanted to say. Cut me off now before we go. No that's okay. We can talk about whatever after we do this. But I just want to say a couple of announcements first thing is your show is back for those of you that don't know and for some reason only listen to this or you know maybe this is your only valley folk fix that you get so just in case.

That are a good friend Taylor Put Up and made amazing and those of you who follow us on our Youtube Channel YouTube dot com slash. The valley folk. You've seen a video where we Basically did a sketch slash chronicling of the building process. And that's sketches on the Channel. Now and it's very fun. Elliott Joe and I got to play. Some new characters is Weiner's yes the diz Weiner's and It's so bizarre so weird and I love it so much and I you know I really had a feeling you guys all made me feel like I was.

Four days week Monday through Thursday and then Friday is a specialty video like a sketch or some kind of bts type thing and it's so exciting because we're working our asses off and this has really been a collection of every single person here at this office working their asses off to bring really cool shit to you guys yet. It's it's GonNa be real good. We also are moving. As a result of the new schedule. A lot of the other titles are moving to behind the Patriot which will make them better in my opinion And that'll be on video by video basis. But one of the hot takes just went up there and We're going to be a bunch of other stuff so we're also while doing this As a result of it it's GonNa be a pumping new life into the Patriots. Which will be very nice. Yeah and I think we're there's some special stuff coming to the Patriots soon to like. I think a COMECON blog that I shot venture with me and Brett Register. is will be up on patriotic at some point that'll be patriot exclusive. Yeah enter we We are on. We're in the midst right now. In I think in my opinion of the riskiest. We're making the riskiest. Decisions are made. Which really is if you know anything about our journey pretty impressive though we were already topping the risks that we've done in the past and we're doing multiple at a time. Someone programming some on the back end. And you'll hear about them as they're more official role out. Yeah it's good stuff. It's very exciting. Which one are we? Are we shifting or getting off the pot in that in that anals shitting? Yeah so right now. We are shitting. We are shifting our brains out on the toilet and we're not getting up and it's it's plenty of new stuff coming. It's so exciting. And totally risks are being made this year valley. Xxx Felt Valley Valley. What does it lack? What does the accent for Valle laxative vow LAX vowel? Let's take valley lack but Yeah it's so exciting and and we don't WanNa keep talking shop because we won't get into the fun stuff but this is fun stuff and we're very excited and we've been streaming like sometimes three times a week to on On the Youtube Channel. If you guys are like I don't like video games. Well guess what even though we are playing video games. Sometimes we're still having so much fun. And the audience has been awesome and people have been joining us. And we're really building this fun little community in the live streaming Dishes so much stuff. There's like more fireside chats coming where we just talked to the camera and we talked to the patrons and we we opened up a rare a really like intimate dialogue with everybody and just kind of ask them how they think we're doing and what we could do differently or what you love or what you don't love and then we vice versa. We ask them how they're doing and what they live in and it's really fun and intimate and it's something that we we like to do and we're going to try to do that a lot more and again that is just for patrons we did. We did a public one recently to kind of re re start the Patriot and restart this kind of new era of the valley folk just to kind of give you guys a taste of what that is but Yeah there's just so much stuff it's really hard. Keep it all together but We're doing great. It's great. I feel great. I feel invigorated. Feel excited it's freeing us up to do bigger things which is nice. Yeah Yeah and we won't have to shut down our office due to the corona virus because we have such a small team. We're not too worried as long as we're all keeping hygiene proper hygiene habits But I think we're all going to be okay here for now where we're staying safe. Thank you for asking but But yeah so that anyway. That's that's all the housekeeping just beater sighted and oh and please please please please please If you're listening to this I guess you're either on the valley cast channel already or you're hearing this through some other means but But a lot of you know about the valley cast channel but we have valley cast channel where we'll be posting full versions of all the PODCASTS. Now and the valley folk channel have highlight videos featuring small highlights from those podcasts. As well as brand new podcasts. Yeah that will be rolling out one by one this year. Who Will Right now. We can say the first time show is coming back And you're on it. You're in the leftovers but We'RE WE'VE GOT TO GET. That watchmen episode read out and then read all the watched out. And that's going up on the videoing. Yeah Well No. I don't think we're going to do video. That's just too much okay. And it's like getting Ryan at it more videos and it's like more highlights getting getting rain. Ryan names yeah. I don't think we're going to be doing that. But maybe in the future we will if we find a more streamlined. Way To get the video down because it's just you know again. We are a small team and all this. New output is A lot of people were concerned that we're GONNA get burned out really quickly with all this new content. But we've really really really found a way to do all of this. I mean there's a reason it's taken you this long until you're launching it. You weren't just sitting around and then decided to do it today. No we shot of massive backlog of stuff and we have we all the first four episodes of of your show were done like a month ago or something and some. We just wanted to make sure everything was good. So there's a lot of stuff in the can still we say that a lot but Yeah we'RE NOT WE'RE NOT GONNA burn ourselves out. I don't think because really truly this year is the year where we're just kind of like taking big risks like Elliot said. Were shitting on the Papa. We're also throwing all that shit at the wall we are and we're seeing what sticks and there's a bunch of cool new shows coming in there's more tales from the Internet coming and Should I tease the next one is Elliott or he's away? I'm always reteaching the next episode of from the Internet features our very own Elliott Morgan. And Grace Helbig. Oh that's so cool. Yeah Andy called me this morning about editing. The video and I'm going to give you a call and we talked for a little bit very sweet. I love him so he's an angel..
Racism at the school gate and education reclaimed (Part 2)
"Aikido got You Butterfly Net Enhancement. Gravity Heaven and what she step. We're right next to the Bank of Torrens River on Ghani country in the heart of Adelaide plays. Don't fall in the torrents. Those of you that are not South. Straighten off a good ribbon polling today on the white out feeling very sorry. Try and start wipers water Do into the podcast of last week. Show if you've arrived at the dorms late because we're on camp here on science friction and it's going well. Everyone's getting on. This is the C. Syros Aboriginal Summa School for Excellence in technology and science and I'm living in with the nearly forty indigenous students from across the strategy here from Perth to the Torres Strait. They've come from far and wide and it's great to have you with us to on the Tesha Mitchell. You've caught an enormous something or dragonfly. It's huge thing. It was just innocent. Thought Maybe we could Kate Me Swan and then if we get any more or less just Alana line Patched candidate the University of Adelaide so working on parasitic wasps. My mission is to teach a bit more of an appreciation awareness of what's around which these kids have embraced wholeheartedly fishnet Connor Looking. It's camouflaged really. Yeah so as part of ABC's walking together. I'm bringing you powerful personal stories from three generations of indigenous. Australians today on racism in classrooms on triumphantly pushing past the low expectations others can have foyer and are knowing who you Would Hi this is a Science Camp Theresa? Let's get some of that good stuff at by the reba without insect. Nate's I love it because when I was little I used to do this in the backyard. I'll just for the fun of it. Like we did. Ones and lacked playful the bugs and stuff and Done things we went touches. The real big because that's scary. This is year eleven student Catherine. She's from Queensland. I've always had a interest in biodiversity because when I was lying about it in school I just found it fascinating the way things like adapted to the surroundings and how strong Some animals off. But do you think you might study in Uni? I definitely want medicine like the medicine. Science and even in science medicine side of it because on surf fascinated about the way humans like animals too but mostly humans alphabrain the actual workings about nerves and our nervous system and everything. I just find it so fascinating to fix people with your knowledge of that. It's just it's mind blowing to me. If you're ever original or Torres Strait islander you make up about three percent over strides population but just under two percent of all students enrolled at university are indigenous. That's growing by around half of a said over the last decade or side when it comes to Unical says in the natural and physical sciences. It and engineering. Less than one percent of students are indigenous for first year medicine. That's around two point. Four percent and of course completion rights alarm but this camp is about helping to change that. It's about road tasting university. Simon names macaroni. I'm an epidemiologist with. Csiro food and nutrition and things are about to get very real for the students right now. We're talking about their activities for the rest of the week and in particular their inquiry which is quite a lot of pressure for them. They'll need to spend a lot of their time thinking about the question that they want to investigate for the next few days and then they'll have to be ready to present it by next week. You asking them to do scientific experiment in two days scientific inquiry. That might be an experiment but it might be some other activities but yet in today's Yep they'll spend a lot of the allison a day. Doing it will be under a lot of pressure but based on previous years they do a great job so they've got to collect data definitely have to collect data they'd go to interpret data and they'll go to present it all of the precious situations for them so the pressure is on from pretty much all mice now not quite a couple of days. I think they'll feel it from tomorrow morning. Hitler research can be conceded. A A dirty word Saith West head is a young research scientist irregular mentor on these caves. He comes from Alaba Coal. And we're edgy. Country in these half miles research was something that was done on. Aboriginal people not with Aboriginal people and certainly not let by aboriginal people but as we get more aboriginal academics in high positions within the academy. This is where we can start to see a change of the culture so we need young people. All of the students present curious and inquisitive mind and from my perspective. That's all you need to be a scientist. The rest is just learning the specific language to answer the specific questions that you come up with and that's just a process. Anybody can do that. We really made more indigenous people in science. We've got so much work today. But we need more indigenous people everywhere. It's hard to access education for aboriginal people and are stolen papal. It's hard to walk to welds of wanting to preserve your own culture and sense of identity. Sometimes studying integrate main sacrificing culture identity and sometimes staying strong culture means sacrificing education. Perhaps no one knows these more than an ano education later. I made it a gathering by the five page of the Wheelchair Boarding House. Where all staying at Miami's Ruben and direct for education does P. Y. Yeah we didn't on almost for you know all the people it's our language and then another language as we had last week students from the remote traditional lands of the unindo people in South Australia. Come stay here. We'll check to go to high school in Adelaide. Now looking at you know dairies. To Wolves do peak will come together. You know the wisden world is really important that are now people need to get educated through sure school to get a job and money travel around you know speak language English and understand where there was an will come from and why why we see really important pulled in you know kids to university by his crowd. I need to build than me on the stand with coming from and you're not educated to vision. It's a big thing you know for
Which Liverpool Will Show Up Against Chelsea?
"Chelsea Segment Liverpool tomorrow in the FA Cup Chelsea favorites actually To make it through to the quarter-finals proteins of wobbles of late. Which point of view is interesting? Because you'd imagine that they'll both go strong for this. Well I'm not sure I'm not sure. I actually think that someone digital in this area I think Chelsea my ever sneaky Johnson not because Liverpool were very weekend against wofford which to wear but one hole and two. And I'm only surmising here. You might be thinking about putting all these eggs and not jumping sleep boskin. But that's next week. You know that you know you try. And things like that we can mic on. You seem in. This man are vaccinated. I'm not talking about a player but I'm tired. I'm talking key. Players getting injured rights right. So it don't matter if the game is next week or ten days right not the full to lose money for. Minot already lost had this same delusion. Dale Van Dyke so I wonder whether or not he will make some not wholesale. Make quite a few changes for this game thinkin right. Bremer leaked pretty much the bike. Yes he's leak. You need to get you play a shop playing properly. I'm with Craig. I fully understand of you club. Mix Mix mix change it just because I just explained to me what will intend result against Wofford but even though Liverpool have been winning some of their performances have been great as you spoken about over the last couple of weeks or so of hood that you spoke about the last couple of weeks. So you understand if he wants to change things and maybe give some of keeps the rest at the same time Chelsea. I expect them to go strong. They have been all over the last few weeks really cover year on. Does he give give kept our roads and maybe figure things out with John so I I think this is a big game for Chelsea on you. See that brutally lineups probably result don. I totally agree with shocker. I cannot see Liverpool plains. Strong team looked at a team. They played against shoes being the last round and it was full of teenagers. Harvey Elliott played at Sixteen Chiro. Vela eighteen the oldest player was twenty one. So I can't imagine many of you have big hitters planning this because it's Craig said before you pick up an injury now and even though the chums league is approximately ten days away. You got no chance recovering so you don't play them now you don't play them against former Earth truly you need. I don't think sharpness I think played enough. Games is enough games in their legs to suggest that they are shot. I mean if anything I feel a little bit jaded. I thought you saw that in the performance against Wofford so I think you'll go pretty strong against Balmer. But even then he can rescue strong against former which is closest to the Atlanta game and getting doesn't matter at all I don't of the Premier League's the holy grail formulaic. It's funneling well. We we know the one the primly but young couple still want to get back on the horse of lost one game against Wofford and eastward in the press today saying good teams. Don't lose to the spin so that suggests to me that you know will will play people Adam Alana if he's in one or two others but it I guarantee you it'll be a very very young side against Chelsea then it'll be semi strong against Bournemouth and then he's full-strength side again southbound after the hostages. He can't take any chances. If if Monay for me no you know Van Dyke Allison if any of those pickup injuries in the next couple of games. I mean you'd have to say. The chances of them go through would be slim as the explanation. Divide combine any of them three three x pros plausible explanations of how the changes against Chelsea and make more changes against Baltimore in the League and then he hoped he put his strongest against us led to Madrid. Right that's not rocket science right just because you go there and play all his best players. Don't think Liverpool team right. We'll look at it and go while I think we'll look at it and it will be very much a hybrid. I'll be surprised if not rutland on prediction. I think Chelsea win because I said before the two sides the team in the manager that needs the result. Moawad it's frankly been on a desperate Ron. I come and tight on their game in the beginning against Balmer. They were lucky to get a draw. Fill scored a very company. Easy Chances. Zeljan would've got beaten the game so then not in great form so I would imagine frank logo really really strong and I think young young. Nothing the home side win for the reasons I mentioned. We'll have with changes which I think will come and Chelsea being at home and played some good stuff at home. I'm going to go for that reason. Jesse thanks very much
Voice Development and the Creative Process with Ilarna Nche
"Today I have the honour talking to Alana Chad who's a voice developer. Whose boiled many many different experiences for Alexa. Google and bixby. And what really impressed me about Lorna is her creativity and all the things that she's done with voice. Some really really excited to talk to her alarm. Why don't you introduce yourself? Hi everyone my name is Alana. I am twenty four years old. I am working on voice. Assistance will be free is now and I recently graduated from the University of Kent For Year pursued. Waste Industry Kind of Siebel where it was all about added Paid off and I've recently been announced Alexa champion and will serve Recently announced as bixby develop theories. Well said a very pleased with how guarding. I'm glad I took the the junk ready grades. And congratulations on being the bixby developer. The air at project voice and Being Alexa champion. That's quite an accomplishment of I have to ask you. What did you get your degree in technology degree or completely different? Yes so I was down that route of going into university in thinking what do I actually want to do and I never I? I was at the point where we have to decide what route you wanted to go down. I'd never really done any of computer science or anything up until hours around sixteen years old because they didn't ready introduce that into into schools much so it wasn't until I was sixteen. Monday introduced Him It's like a high school the high school side at. That's what I saw and I was like. Wow I wanna try it and I kind of not with the whole computer science as and I knew then I wanted to do something in that field but did I want to do it as a job. So that's why I chose. Degree weather is very broad so it. It kind of varies from Web Design to games designed to photography reading modeling like any module any cool secret drink. It was very very broad. Silos able to be like take if I liked it will hide the just will not go down that route because I actually did want to do reading log lane. I thought was really cool. What I saw the course at Casino Harry possible violence the Pixar than when I came to ours like actually this is quite hard and also quite you have to patients because you'll be making a ten second clip in the whole time. I literally I. I have the patience with that. So I did like the whole mobile application development and everything else that came with the coolest so I tied down the the programming side. That's how I kind of figured out went to be in fields. Great you know I encourage people to go explore different things and try things out right because who knows I think should reinvent yourself every end years and figure out what really excites you and go pursue it and even if that means a big change so good for you to try a bunch of things and and you landed on something you enjoy for right now and Yeah go pursue it so learn by my count you created twelve different Vicky capsules and they arrange everything. There's some educational capsules was capsules. Fitness. There's an. As Amara capsule yes in Quiz Games. Can you describe a couple of those big speak capsule in experiences? Yes with with big beat being so new and that the market is well. I I wanted to basically kind of see which type of capsule John kind of like making the Live at the mall one. It was simply something. I bake these experiences to me some cause before I related to other people by decided. Let's take an approach. Like make them for myself. I would you so I'm a big fan of they. Samah I love going to sleep to the mall and I noticed that there are no asleep. Sound experiences out that the A very big market. When look on Youtube for example a lot of people do love a law on it so different to ambient noises because of the whole experience is supposed to deliver this brain light tingle to grain and relax your brain so I wanted to make one and the best thing about putting it on bixby. Robin like Youtube is that we've topped the screen on and you're trying to get to bed the light shining in the room at least if you put it on a voice platform than kind of eliminate the whole having to have screen on and you can just listen away and go to sleep at sun baths with the small one with education. I've kind of always with me being in education for so long you kind of It's kind of a nice way to just keep shop and keep lining whether is learning a language learning maximum stuff stuff that you kind of need to keep learning with at and also fitness. I never really did many experiences and I wanted to see especially when it comes to the end of Christmas. Everyone's not fitness mentality. And you always WANNA keep so i. I've never tried one of my capsules. I made my yoga. I never done yoga before. But I forbid good. experienced Yoga positions as well as make something. I could use to win. You know I love it when people say they built something for themselves she we're talking about. Am tomorrow the Yoga Capsule Education Capsules Unit? You sound found personal benefit to these any wanted to share it and always find that when you build from the heart something you just do your much more motivated and it really really shows in the quality of what you build so great great job you touch them. This a little bit alarmed. But how did you first get involved with building for voice? What what motivated you to to build for this new medium. The main difference the main encouragement life for me to get into voice was honestly. I did that Michael sweaters on full of different modules. And I I knew that where I struggled was with visual graphic design and I love my lapse. I really did want from that. Was My design Like designing the the APP so visuals so when we Amazon dot came out. I notice that you could speak to it. And it will these skills and I didn't realize it was a third party developer. Who'd made these this experience so i. I love learning skills. I'm always up for landing anything so when I when I saw you could make one yourself. I jumped at the opportunity and I started building. It was really simple experience. It was gang could odds on why you would not match the same number of Alexia so that was by really enjoyed Also collected have to think about the design side of things so fast already love love voice. Yeah that's great so it sounds like followed your strengths so I was gonna ask you. What your first voice experience was. But you said it was the odds-on is that still out on the skill store. I had I had no idea still lacking yeah. I think we all have our first things that we built. They think the first thing ever built is a jokes scale. I don't know if you're not have to go check. But when and how did I get started developing bixby itself? Yeah so I was invited to be developer partner program and yet I was told you want to start developing on BEC- speak I had heard expe- before the the the sound on Samson Introduced to the essay the Galaxy S. nine and I was like of course anew scaled the I'd just I just love learning anytime some of that. Something I'm like. Yes for and then the Simpson team. What me on. Everything the ide- e the Bixby Studio hand it kind of was very very intimidating fast. Because I was like a new platform is different syntax using bid. I'd never hundred full but I think it made it easier once I once I kind of just in that whole Amazon Mine Alexa. Mind watching the fall but once I remember that was we did not. You did a tutorial that Webinar with the horoscopes. A yeah actually. I think it might have been atom uncharted the Horoscope to Joyal few. It was about horoscopes. But yeah coding without him. Yeah yeah it was yeah Lebanon end it was like Every helped so I always say like a lot to learn. Visually visual linings. Always our big eight for me. I I kind of documentation is good with support. The I thought visual AIDS so when there's a lot of videos stuff out there examples not the example is really helpful. It really helped kind of move my Experience with big speak

We were talking about before I started recording. I'm really excited to do interviews with people that are. They're doing real work in photography and using their cameras to not just for the sake of you know taking pretty pictures but to actually tell stories. And that's what this interview is all about so I'm excited to be doing this part of the Fuji Series with you. You're right now. You're based currently right now. You're in Colombia. And you know you're you're like we said in the intro your photographer based in Columbia. Let's start with the beginning so before we dive into the piece that you did around their wrinkle. Let's talk about the. What led you to be a photographer. Why why is when Nita photographer right now I started. I got in love Kelly I started to work seating months since when I was seventeen you I quit school and a have degradable to to join Both Sima and I continue the whole movie like to mom so I discover like this fashion two stories to the come around basically due to give storm so after these movie I joined on these people I learnt with them for the years of my career then I decided to do stories just with a comment about the beginning was and we'd seen him on really well so why why why the transition to still photos from cinema. Why not continue with with motion for me? I wanted to be defeat lightly and cinematographer actor and I was doing like these to training myself and so from the beginning of the camera. Mice field bad to just Like a few department but also I was very touched by documentary and I wanted to do mentoring but then I realized I was very young but I was seventeen and then I realized that being among all these speed bull and moving with the such amount of people who was not that E. C. N. Not that easy for me to to find a quick Dissatisfaction we did with the stories. I wanted to start from each year to go to travel out of the descend and start with my oncoming So and I had the opportunity to to go and travel with a friend photographer to award team the planes so so I was able to sign my sales. Y'All sweet the commerce and I preferred These these non leanness and these T. Messy saw as soon as I say what was like the first assignment just would become. I decided that I prepared these instead of being Group of people photography depending on the genre photography. It's it could be very solitary and therapeutic for a lot of people where you just Kinda go out by yourself and capture these stories but like we read in the story that you you published on full blog. Refer DOT COM. The the solitariness is an aspect that you have to be aware of especially when you're doing stories like you did around the rink. Oh River right. It's not necessarily the safest environment can you? Can you tell us about just how that particular story came to be? And what drove you to create? Yes when I told you that I started very young here we do and I can that links the audio so huge region one of the Sikhs Reunion Columbia and it's almost like easily so all the rivers goals to the walker reader which is because Sweden region as I arrived in two thousand seven and two one bar the region but not not not so I started this erste eight years and say to to become a photographer and true telling the stories of the genitals. Char the cowboys in America or the team so I was working like a we. Don unto policies going with them. By course we'd all descended notable Alana's and living with them by Morrison's many use and by reading so all the time they'll be norcal I never. I was never been nobody all the time. Whilst Reference Geographic referencing quitter restaurants. As well time I want to go there. We was nightclub. Oh one once. Arriving was like Connecticut Journey for me. I tried to borrow once but by course. It was very complicated. We just need like one or two and we go look. We went back and so he was until two thousand fifty. That for the time I arrive by won't likely now the Twin Towers to buy By DMITAR even and I are rightful decision sciences building so it was not the something new because I was never been there but was like my goal always to arrive. There was. What was it like when you when you got up? So a twelve hour journey on the boat. And then you arrive there. What was that like having that? Been Your that being your goal for such a long time like a like a result like a all. These previous years was was there at same time and and get like empowering these moments of being facing an enormous river and Oldham needs that I caught before the previous idea. There was like more money. She sank and season Thursday. Sixers contact I I will. I knew that I had to stay there and leave their and explored sweeter. So how long did you did you say there and explore the river and I have been. I came back Team days ago. And it's just now okay. It's new and senior working. There are now here young means you bud is a small town. A declaims is like the department is the next department next to the visa which is worth noting local east so I am in the same region and I see leaving here
Hans van Dam, Co-Founder of Robocopy.io, discusses building trust between humans and AI
"Your specialty is in conversational design and when it comes to doing that for voice what would you say creates trust and better communication in between humans in a when it comes to the conversational design and General Electric to see obviously a lot of these projects. Starters engineering projects right. So there's some smart guys in the companies they figure out you know. We can use conversationalist technology and build a choice application and then they often just end up writing the the dialogue is right so what we sort of been able to put together with the help of you know the brand stuff we work with and somebody university is really a design process step by step process that just creates very human centric designs There's much more natural helpful persuasive and on so having to natural conversation already helps with us but if we look at you know certain trust markers to create trust between personalities obviously a big warm. You know you bought personality. How do you design the? What's the word that you use when you're trying to achieve and make people feel comfortable around that consistency NC the relate registering way but also think about you know the people that you trust most that you're most comfortable around often people people that you get hats shared experiences with right and is often times of stress? That's when you set a create deep meaningful relationship with people so if you design particularly works in customer service or even some big purchases on the sales end if you can figure out how to navigate in in our to manage the oceans of customers understand that sometimes there's stress Alana you know it's a very important big deal was going on there. You really understand the mindset setups designed for that. That's when you start. Developing deep meaningful relationships. Customer said Advanced Trust also you know explain ability in a hey I is becoming more and more important. It's does to our designers but I'll start explaining to people like how does he. I come to a certain decision or survey results. You know having an explain ability narrative around debt on creating frameworks for that helps also obviously certification. I think one of the bigger things now now is that there's two trends in the walls right. Companies want more and more data than at the same time. People are starting to wonder what's happening to data right definitely losing trust these teach Richmond's cannot coexist and you can sort of feel it everywhere that it's going to be a bigger issue the trust making it a five ulcer people that that you're not misuse the The should not do it any cigarettes.

"We are here to talk about Social Media News and and the first thing we're going to talk about is star wars because the trailer was on tonight during the halftime show of the Monday night football game to which I said to Monday night football games normally have a halftime show is not more of a super bowl thing and my husband who's a football fan said he didn't think it normal we happened but ESPN is owned by Disney who also now owned star wars so they have you know they they have the means to play the new star wars trailer as part of the halftime show which may or may not be a normal part of Monday night football it doesn't matter if it is or not that's when it was and we happen to be watching the game let me rephrase my husband happened to be watching the game I happen to be reading a book that's that's often how we watch football together uh together I glanced up every once in a while and we we know we have conversations I read a book or snuggle with puppies or whatever it happens to be so the new trailer the rise star wars the rise of skywalker premiered tonight and of course it is now trending on Social Media so there's a lot of scenes of ray running running and jumping into generally being the athletic bad ass that she tends to be you know it it tells you both a lot and not much at all gives you just enough to speculate of course because that is what a good trailer does and of course people are speculating the trailer is two minutes and thirty eight seconds long so of course there's plenty to speculate about and of course fans are already commenting on social media creating youtube videos et CETERA and there's already than articles parsing the social media news and the the all of these all the speculation this article is from movie Web Dot COM and they say they have I know they don't say that that was my word they say we have compiled some of the best still images to make section process that much easier for everybody Some fans got an early start this afternoon when the studio released a teaser trailer which featured the Ice Planet of Jimmy and possibly the ghost chip from the Star Wars rebels animated series so Lucasville announced over the weekend that the final rise of skywalker trailer was going to drop during tonight's Monday night football game which follows the promotional campaign for the previous in this stall moment of latest trilogy j.j Abrams has spoken about his fear of putting endings two things but he seems pretty confident that what he pulled off here and the rise of Skywalker The new trailer teases something star wars fans are going to be talking about for months couple of months at least because it comes out on December twentieth so we have we have just under two months to speculate before we can go see it the rise of Walker footage released so far has had a darker tone to it which seems forboding return of Emperor Palestine who get to hear once again and his presence is felt all over this preview. There's teasers of the dark side taking over but we always but we know that George Lucas always intended on bringing balance to the story so we will more than likely end up seeing that representative as well even though he with the latest trailer and footage we still have no idea what J.j Abrams and Chris Stereo have really cooked up for us that does not stop us from speculating things that I saw on social media people already combining Kylo and raise name like a rail oh I think I saw some referred to him Kylo refer Dumas's Bennett depending on how you think of him but there's all sorts of speculation on what Ben and Kylo and Ray are going to be up to the palpitation also trending of course Hashtag Palestine people are having a field day speculating my favorite my favorite tweets were those talking about Ray Ray low rain kylo being on some kind of grand scavenger hunt to find the Hor- cruxes of the emperor because that just combines all of my dorky passions of both Star Wars and star wars and Harry Potter. I can't help it I'm a Dork Internet skype the let me start that over in addition to the final trailer trailer hitting the Internet the rise of skywalker tickets are early on sale well have you ever I know people do it but I have never bought a ticket a movie to two months out I remember when they re released the star I trilogy the original Star Wars Trilogy I was in college and I waited long lines for those but I've never bought a ticket that far out it'll be interesting so well we are about to see the Skywalker saga come to an end that doesn't mean star wars is coming to an end because there's a million different storylines they can pursue it's been forty two years I sense George Lucas introduced the world to the story to these characters wow I mean star wars has been around for four decades which I know because it's been around my whole life but now it's time though to close the book on nine installed events and leave room for new stories to told well it's bittersweet this article says we still have we at least have the rise of Skywalker to look forward to with all of its ties to the past and the future I'm just wondering really is it going to tie things up is it not going you know how satisfied am I going to be about this supposedly conclusion to nine movie story arc and nine movies that are some are better than others let's just put it out there of course some are better than others it's it's going to be that so the the trailer features kind of gives you glimpses of everyone C. Three Po not sure what's going on with C. Three Po little concerned about him from the trailer You Get a brief glimpse of R two D two's chew he's in there a very brief glimpse of Princess Leia hugging ray brief glimpse of Landau flying possibly the Millennium Falcon Falcon. I don't know I didn't pay enough attention but you know and then all the new characters of course ray and Kylo in Poland people whose names I'm not thinking of off the top ahead is clearly I am not that big of a fan no I am a fan I just don't always I just don't have names off the top of my head there's Dumb you get a PLO and podium Ron and Oh what is the guy's name the African American man can't think of his name that's so terrible but that's just weird that that is that it should be Lucan lay back there maybe three Po it it's like weird collisions of my life together and so I don't know what's going on with three P. Oh I don't know what's going on there's lots and lots of drama for me the the trailer was fine it's the music that gets me they do that they do that on purpose of course but the music kind of amps me up less the story Alana law I'm excited about it but it's the music like yes this is this is my childhood this is coming and I get to see it at Christmas time
