"Um, you know, we're on Bloomberg, right? Right right now, right? You are. And do you all know, you know this this place that everything is where everything is traded, Right? You know this place Wall Street. Do you know the history of Wall Street? Yes. You're talking about. You do? The first commodity was ever traded on Wall Street slave trading. Is that what you're referencing? I can't. Yes, I can't hear you. So I said, slave treating Right, because that's what they needed to stand against the wall. And there's a lot of people that don't understand that or know that. Um, and there's so much more. I mean, You know, And there's so many, and I don't want us to get off of the beautiful celebration that is known teeth and and and what our president was able to do today. And what by the way, the Senate and the House and we needed them both. Everybody unanimous unanimously voted and and, uh I thought that was a very beautiful thing. It's such a It's a great gesture and such a great step in the right direction. But again, we have a lot more to go. There was there was some delay between Us and I couldn't hear what you always saying. No, it's OK. It's just there's so much, um and arctic. I see critical race there being like, um You know, I see it being question I see it being debated and I see it. See it being vilified. But why would you not want people to know the history of our country? In order for us to move forward like that is the I think the natural thing for us to do. I understand, you know, like, celebrate our difference versus being afraid of them, you know, celebrate our stories. And, um and and and and and try to get to a place of healing. Are you concerned that in terms of as you said this was An important day, but you don't want this to be necessarily a distraction, right? There's still a lot of work to do. Shorty and I were talking before we got going with you. Farrell is that We look around corporate boardrooms, and they're still not really diverse or the C suite isn't still really diverse. So we've had a lot of conversations again in the past year. What do you see from some of the work that you're doing? Are having an understanding of being a black American, that what really needs to be done to make significant change so that they're We're not talking about DNE. We're actually having it done and seeing it done. So firstly, I we have Joe T pledged it would be great to have all of the fortune 500. You know, you know all of the the bigger corporations to signing, um and make sure people have a paid holiday or at least like a skeleton. They go stay where they can figure out what they want to do with the day, But still Mm hmm. Um, paid for their Americans. Right and doing teeth is now an American federal holiday. But what we're what I'm doing specifically as it pertains to like the, um the disparity and the disproportionate access to education, health, uh, health care. Um, and legislation is black ambition and black ambition. Surprise that we put together some five Oh one c three that we work in partnership with the historic black colleges and universities to find more, Um black and Latin Next entrepreneurs. Now. Why did we do that? Because if you look at the American pie chart like we don't own enough Things out there right where you find people in communities that own things. Their Children actually had great active health care, education and legislation. So in order for us to have a voice, we've got to own more things. And it wasn't just Tulsa, Oklahoma that this that this happened to. It's happened many, many, many, many times, right. So what we want to do is Create a level playing field because we think that Hbcu s have the most fertile grounds to launch such a prize in such a search. Um and then, And then once you win the coolest part Is there is mentor ship If you ask the less than 3% of the private equity and bc founders, um you know of color. What was the biggest hurdle? You think it was the capital Capitals hard, But what's even harder is mentor ship. It's like, you know, it's like giving a dirt. You know a motorcycle to, you know, really excited 12 year old without training wheels or any kind of practice or any kind of Schooling or totally. That's what we want to do is make sure that like when these people who have a good idea, um But may not have like the business acumen. This has given them the advice to make sure that like their idea actually can take off. Now, Carol, I know you. That's what we're doing with black ambition. Sorry to interrupt me there. I know that You launched this initiative back in December and you're targeting, you know startups and black and Latin X entrepreneurs within consumer products and services design healthcare in tech. I was on your website, and it said that national demo Day is scheduled for next month. How many of these entrepreneurs will be making presentations? There's a lot that is a whole whole whole lot. I can also tell you, uh, the numbers were crazy. Um, what I've tried to do. Um, is get out of the way. I'm a galvanizing. It's just something I knew needed that But I'm not one of those like you know, celebrity people who are like man I'm like, right in the middle in front of this because one Yes, I'm an entrepreneur. But as it pertains to, like, training these people and mentoring these people for what it is that they need. We wanted to make sure that like, um this was in a true real partner with the BC use There's a lot of talent that come out of there, and they don't really get the love and the light and the shine that they deserve. So this is not like something where like I am like the Griffin on the ship. Um, if anything, it's just the black ambition that is. I don't know if I'm answering your question, but I just wanted to just tell you like It does. Well, I'm a proud graduate, and I don't want to be Second, I said I'm a proud graduate of a historically black college in university. I graduated from Albany State University in Georgia. And one thing I do want to say mentioned about black ambition. I see you partner with some major organizations such as the Rockefeller Foundation, Adidas The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and Ron Conway. SV Angel. Was it a challenge in bringing these big names together for this endeavor? Let me just tell you, Ron Conway, and that's the angel where he was the first one. It was on his birthday last year. I had a conversation with him at a dinner. And he, you know, stop what he was doing. And he got his boat out. He's got a piece of paper and literally. He started working right there at that table, And honestly, the rest has been history. He called. Willis sell them African American partner at Bridge fan, uh, to come on board to help us, Uh, architect this thing and she quit together and one of the most amazing comprehensive Mostly female. Uh, A mostly female team. It's one of the most amazing processes I've ever seen in my life. You realize that these five Oh one C degrees are are just like any other aren't like it is It is..

"Downloaded now. E never to reform a Minnesota Police department is up for a vote. A change in policing practices is being voted on today in Brooklyn center Minnesota. It was there in that Minneapolis suburb that former police officer Kim Potter fatally shot Dante right, a black man during a traffic stop in April that led to widespread rioting and anti police demonstrations. If passed, the resolution would create new divisions of unarmed civilian employees to handle non moving traffic violations and respond to mental health crises. It would also limit situations in which officers could arrest. The measure has the backing of Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott, and it's got the support of the A C L U Fox, says Karen McCue. Several police organizations are opposed. They believe the measure will endanger the public who knew that hand sanitizer and cigarettes could be a dangerous combination. A man in Maryland learned that lesson after flames reportedly erupted inside his car as a smoked a cigarette while using sanitizer. He suffered burns to his hands and inner thighs. The car was totaled. He was just a child when he scored the interview of a lifetime, But now we won't find out what else he could have accomplished. His family says he's passed away.

Right now A Texas has seemed to be particularly ill prepared for this doctor, Richard Perez is with the University of Albany State University of New York. Senior research associate in there Atmospheric Sciences research center. And let's take a call from Rita in Dallas. Now listening to K L I f radio. Hello, Rita. Oh, yes. Well, I have to tell you here. It's a very miss. We have lucked out. This power, but With my daughter Has some friends. Just North appears Carrollton. It's just above the freeway, and they had powers in their neighbors down the street and no power. So you know, people are inviting their friends in the night. There's a gentleman in Houston. It has a mega furniture stored. Who slept about 300 people there last night? Yes, indeed. We we mentioned that a moment ago. That is, uh Let's see your find that that is the gallery furniture run by mattress. Mack, Jim Mak Mak ng Veil on the north side of Houston. Yes. Yeah, but it's just crazy here, but some people have powers from Don't on they have the Rolling Black house. And, uh, there doesn't seem too busy rhyme or reason who have power who doesn't have no ID like our guest to respond to that. Good luck to you, Rita. Hang in there. Uh, Dr Parents, That's something. I think that's bothered a lot of us. We understand. Okay. Our neighborhoods out of power. Okay, There's no power coming to our neighborhood. I recall one time. And my mother was hit by an ice storm and we actually got power to her from the house right across the street, which had power We ran. A. Ah Ah, an extension cord big chord across the street, and we had several and we put together and it only had to go. I guess about maybe 100 ft. Something like that s so we were glad, but we didn't understand it. How come they had power and my mom did not, Because if they did not seem to be any natural line, they're such that you would say, Well, this house would have power. This one would not Yeah. Generally, uh, they must have been a different power line for sure. Yeah, but I guess I mean so, so the power lines don't tend to follow natural Things that we observe like, let's say, streets or or neighborhoods. No, no, no. Sometimes cross out yonder comes from from another side so you can have laid down the street and not tonight. That, Okay? I mean, fix us down notes and notes of streets without without lights right now. Yeah, okay, because we are short one third. Sure. All right. One good. Dallas called deserves another one. And this one is Ted in Dallas. Hi, Ted. Hey, How are you doing? Just fine. Thank you. Yes, it is. They closed down three or four coal fired power plants to a three him in East Texas run south of Dallas. And that's part of the problem because he's greenies don't have a clue as to what they're doing. You know, it's just a shame that they closed all Empire plants down when they could fire him up and use them. Well, an interesting thought it will. It will address that again. Uh, it does. It does seem rather shortsighted. If in fact, what Ted seems to be describing is is happening, Dr Pairs that they're just shutting down. Power plants willy nilly If you are replacing one source of power with another, that's an entirely different story. But if you are literally just shutting down the power plant with no replacement That doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. Now they reach replacement. Let me qualify that The summer peeking in Texas is.

hashtag tag lemonade a black feminist online resource lists with jessica marie johnson so as we say a couple of weeks ago we talk with these ladies and they share some pretty interesting insights with us so we would like to ask our audience to just listening to this conversation we have let's spill the teeth go some spilling petit all of course the booties sexualize right but i think there's that question of that notion of what actual versus what's hyper sexual and i think for black women there is always push to think of us as hyper it's not just so much of that has to do with how we and not even just internsive terrible but it is a tricky thing because people want to talk about her aid agencies important always in the context of you know what are your choices right and i think we're going to talk about how black women can claim their own sexuality what what is that we think we're doing when we put out certain images i'm thinking of i'm feeling myself there is that between the popstars beyond saying in nicki menaj there's sneaky manashe token all i would say at some of the stereotypes around black women's booty lists ways right in in anaheim honda but there's always that question of what is a reinforced stereotype like did on a do we noticed unpacked our ideas about black female sexuality we could go back and forth with that or even i could just give wien example of how my students responded to her video computer jennifer lopez booty which was you know har- pairing herself with iggy azalea offs and there's a way in which jennifer lopez at iggy azalea they don't get last at you know for a highlight in their sexy acce- booties but nicki menaj does you know how much of that is about size how much of that is about race how much of that is about you know a. j. lo and iggy they're the right size in terms of their booties because j. lo and iggy azalea they don't get compared to sarah apartment in a way that nicki menaj i saw the commentaries i this is the hot tub penis all over again ranks so what do we mean when we say that and i think there's so much that caller is the way we look at black women's bodies and i think it's that term hyper sexual at immediately gets labeled you we know for our bodies in particular and i just thought that was really interesting just in terms of my students reactions to i have a question about how that how that plays out with like other other ethnic groups and cultures like won't particularly why people so we have this ethics is very interesting line between you know a black woman's body the way that she naturally just shows up in the world this is the but we were born with right versus you we know the black woman who tries to enhance it you know over over enhance it through you know different means whether it's injections or or what have have you and to me that feels like a little bit of resistance like you're not gonna tell me what's beautiful but then it goes to me i don't know it feels like you know where's the line there but then i think about how you know we have people who are in quote unquote mainstream america's berkeley in like media and music industry in mtv reality tv that do the same thing and there is some ridicule but i don't know how i guess listen trying to have had like how is that how is it different i mean are they also when i say they i mean are white women also kind of taking this this hot and top venus you know imagery to the next level looked at differently because they do it or is there still a level ridicule our question about like the authenticity of it like have you have you can manage that with the two different us like the the woman's body the connector i know you want to jump in here i just don't think you can have this conversation without a but shots right sir and you know it is ask spain in nikki nikki manaka's arches ash is also the treatment of all these different assets kim kardashians as is faith tally allies whole friggin body is being so well we offer to talk about this idea and this desire for black women's features but not black women that win renaming ma and win and we also think we have to talk about nikki AM beyond stays their careers have had different stages i would say a nikki may be in the late capitalism phase of her when really my came at nikki she talked about her athlete right which was came back from rumors from when she was dating meat meal in a way that he was denigrating her talking about her for wind she dumped him right so i think we have to talk about not just it's not just a black woman's real butts but what the implications of other people can now get what are considered black women's acids but not on black women there there's there's a huge complexity of what's going on here and out people expanding getting shots to what can be considered growth are hyper sexual stages particularly louis i think trying to reach this sort of idea this false construct of of bartman that we have in that natasha and to now have talked about right this is what black womanhood should look like even though it's a false construct of itself in trace down through history and how are both black and non black women trying to feed into that but feeding into it in a sense of we have talk about capitalism sex work exchange being the marriage market all of these things have to go in because i don't want us to only blamed women without naming women within the marketplace that they are being socialized to become beautiful within we cannot only talk about iggy azalea big but without also talking about her changing her accent to sound just like gangsta boo we can't talk about iggy azalea in her fake but without also talking about TI bringing her to the forefront and i think we also have to talk about how so much of this is structured by a black man's desire scalia and you know are we faulting a lot of this some there's really comes from stripper culture right having the assets going to make you the most money in the strip club and these things trickling out natasha sean i wanted to ask you and thank you for that can each because you're reminding me of i think there's a chapter in bell hooks his book yearning where where she does have this nice conversation by pointing out the dichotomy between having like a genuine aesthetic value right as release a black beauty and then capitalism capitalism and what's interesting is that it begs the question can our analysis around a reclamation of beauty and black doc beauty really be devoid of capitalism and to your point it can't right so natasha i know that you wanted to jump in there as well like where does this sit with you in in two yeah absolutely and i you know what i just completely affirmed what can interesting specifically around the idea of the gays and capitalism rates so why do we even know the name well we sarah baartman has sort of emerged foot believe the hot puffiness friends this this persona rage and in many ways she was taken sort of a sample of what african african women look like monstrosity rains in comparison which was to what was perceived at that time as the norm what was natural meaning the the white woman's body right and so asa curvaceous southern african woman who looked like the the rest of her society meeting with not an anomaly in that space when he's taken out of that stage she is like all these ideas about the monstrous chris black body that needs to be captured that needs to be tamed all these things that needs to be conquered and enslaved sort of get applied upon her and so oh it is in our contemporaries on thinking about genetics earlier hops journals earlier mentioned to kim kardashian and sort of the moment where she breaking the internet ranked redo is very old european photographers image of i did it in the seventies of a black woman with yes the champagne glass on her on her behind and show so we have started this recreation of kim kardashian in side profile with her yulia fired gear with champagne like checking glasses perched on her rear essentially internet owes to break no actually what she did was essentially she capitalized on a historical cash cow situation where we there's already knowledge that this particular giller gaze at this interest or this idea this consumptive idea of the black woman's behind at all it hyper sexuality rates in the depths of the the perversity that we understand really underscores a lot of interactions in the slave experience rate with european amp black women all those things sort sort of come out in how capitalize it to focus on her rear she is not new to the game she has taken something that had already been long established undocumented and the and that gays have been not only given permission but sort of said this is the only way to access black women through their bodies do your rear entry manipulate manipulated it in order to make a mark for herself rage and so she has the design budi goudie rate in so in many ways it is desired but historically that goudie on black women simply men monstrous i'd like to add to that you know can eat your brought up the issue but shots and whatnot in his like and this is not new either i'm actually thinking in the nineteenth century of the bustle particular design the victorian era that gave the impression specifically take for white elite women to look like actually having rear and i do believe that that came out of the emergency sarah baartman and the hotline lena shows absolutely so i think we've always been dealing with that so called appropriation that idea as you you know my fellow scholars are saying that people want to get the the black woman's booty or the black woman slipped without actually scene on black women and what does that mean i'm also thinking because getting back to the issue of sexuality one of the things that while we're talking and i actually was thinking back to this atrocious movie called venus noir is a french film i now you're mentioning can you know well let me just this is why natasha's work is so important here about what it needs to bartman at the center of her own story of it was just the absolute worse of a completely completely silenced sarah baartman is what we got in that film i also thought it was very interesting and maybe maybe this is just you know you we know what we think about booty because the actress they actually had no offence to her didn't really have a buddy i like what was the catholic about unto itself what we consider to now could you tell the audience what that what that film was supposed to was at a documentary or what was that film it was a french language the feature film by filmmaker who did the movie blue is it's the warmest color did that controversial film about lesbian love he actually did an actual film about sarah baartman was called venus venus noir and it came out in two thousand eleven and actually either two thousand ten two thousand eleven i've always found on a very interesting that it came out during the bicentennial art when i arrive in europe there's some she said about that and it it it was supposed to tell her story except i think it really highlighted how didn't because the actress her name is yerma galkina tara she was at the africa cuban she was a cast to play a sarah baartman and she hardly you had any any any words in the snow completely silent it's also interesting that there was is this idea that somehow sarah baartman descended into prostitution i think there are still questions about bad but it's interesting how we're willing to believe that about her we're also willing into believe that she died of some kind of sexually transmitted disease there's that rumor that's out there there's no there's no proof of that either but it's just the way we have received you bet story where we do hyper sexualize her and that was just a movie that of the age of mine it was recent i'm glad most people didn't see it because it's only a french language films i do not recommend it whatsoever mer but it is out there and i just wanted to to to mention in that we we still have some real issues in the way we actually tell her story which is to say somebody else other than in a european man actually he's middle eastern but that's whatever out somebody else i'll be bad you know certain men should be able to ital- lesson or or even women in a conversation i had been asha i understand there is a movie coming out about sarah partnered man i'm just like ooh i'm very i'm very superstitious maybe i'm just very cautious that that story story can be told well i am actually really worried about that story is well because it it's being adapted take from a book called exile child written by white south african woman and it has gotten the stamp of the topple mbeki foundation i have what state i know my blood.

question of that notion of what actual versus what's hyper sexual and i think for black women there is always push to think of us as hyper it's not just so much of that has to do with how we and not even just internsive terrible but it is a tricky thing because people want to talk about her aid agencies important always in the context of you know what are your choices right and i think we're going to talk about how black women can claim their own sexuality what what is that we think we're doing when we put out certain images i'm thinking of i'm feeling myself there is that between the popstars beyond saying in nicki menaj there's sneaky manashe token all i would say at some of the stereotypes around black women's booty lists ways right in in anaheim honda but there's always that question of what is a reinforced stereotype like did on a do we noticed unpacked our ideas about black female sexuality we could go back and forth with that or even i could just give wien example of how my students responded to her video computer jennifer lopez booty which was you know har- pairing herself with iggy azalea offs and there's a way in which jennifer lopez at iggy azalea they don't get last at you know for a highlight in their sexy xc booties but nicki menaj does you know how much of that is about size how much of that is about race how much of that is about you know a. j. lo and iggy they're the right size in terms of their booties because j. lo and iggy azalea they don't get compared to sarah apartment in a way that nicki menaj i saw the commentaries i this is the hot tub penis all over again ranks so what do we mean when we say that and i think there's so much that caller is the way we look at black women's bodies and i think it's that term hyper sexual at immediately gets labeled you we know for our bodies in particular and i just thought that was really interesting just in terms of my students reactions to i have a question about how that how that plays out with like other other ethnic groups and cultures like won't particularly why people so we have this ethics is very interesting line between you know a black woman's body the way that she naturally just shows up in the world this is the but we were born with right versus you we know the black woman who tries to enhance it you know over over enhance it through you know different means whether it's injections or or what have have you and to me that feels like a little bit of resistance like you're not gonna tell me what's beautiful but then it goes to me i don't know it feels like you know where's the line there but then i think about how you know we have people who are in quote unquote mainstream america's berkeley in like media and music industry in mtv reality tv that do the same thing and there is some ridicule but i don't know how i guess listen trying to have had like how is that how is it different i mean are they also when i say they i mean are white women also kind of taking this this hot and top venus you know imagery to the next level looked at differently because they do it or is there still a level ridicule our question about like the authenticity of it like have you have you can manage that with the two different us like the the woman's body the connector i know you want to jump in here i just don't think you can have this conversation without a but shots right sir and you know it is ask spain in nikki nikki manaka's arches ash is also the treatment of all these different assets kim kardashians as is faith tally allies whole friggin body is being so well we offer to talk about this idea and this desire for black women's features but not black women that win redeeming ma and win and we also think we have to talk about nikki AM beyond stays their careers have had different stages i would say a nikki may be in the late capitalism phase of her when really my came at nikki she talked about her athlete right which was came back from rumors from when she was dating meat meal in a way that he was denigrating her talking about her for wind she dumped him right so i think we have to talk about not just it's not just a black woman's real butts but what the implications of other people can now get what are considered black women's acids but not on black women there there's there's a huge complexity of what's going on here and out people expanding getting shots to what can be considered growth are hyper sexual stages particularly louis i think trying to reach this sort of idea this false construct of of bartman that we have in that natasha and to now have talked about right this is what black womanhood should look like even though it's a false construct of itself in trace down through history and how are both black and non black women trying to feed into that but feeding into it in a sense of we have talk about capitalism sex work exchange being the marriage market all of these things have to go in because i don't want us to only blamed women without naming women within the marketplace that they are being socialized to become beautiful within we cannot only talk about iggy azalea big but without also talking about her changing her accent to sound just like gangsta boo we can't talk about iggy azalea in her fake but without also talking about TI bringing her to the forefront and i think we also have to talk about how so much of this is structured by a black man's desire scalia and you know are we faulting a lot of this some there's really comes from stripper culture right having the assets going to make you the most money in the strip club and these things trickling out natasha sean i wanted to ask you and thank you for that can each because you're reminding me of i think there's a chapter in bell hooks his book yearning where where she does have this nice conversation by pointing out the dichotomy between having like a genuine aesthetic value right as release a black beauty and then capitalism capitalism and what's interesting is that it begs the question can our analysis around a reclamation of beauty and black doc beauty really be devoid of capitalism and to your point it can't right so natasha i know that you wanted to jump in there as well like where does this sit with you in the two yeah absolutely and i you know what i just completely affirmed what can interesting specifically around the idea of the gays and capitalism rates so why do we even know the name well we sarah baartman has sort of emerged foot believe the hot puffiness friends this this persona rage and in many ways she was taken sort of a sample of what african african women look like monstrosity rains in comparison which was to what was perceived at that time as the norm what was natural meaning the the white woman's body right and so asa curvaceous southern african woman who looked like the the rest of her society meeting with not an anomaly in that space when he's taken out of that stage she is like all these ideas about the monstrous chris black body that needs to be captured that needs to be tamed all these things that needs to be conquered and enslaved sort of get applied upon her and so oh it is in our contemporaries on thinking about genetics earlier hops journals earlier mentioned to kim kardashian and sort of the moment where she breaking the internet ranked redo is very old european photographers image of i did it in the seventies of a black woman with yes the champagne glass on her on her behind and show so we have started this recreation of kim kardashian in side profile with her yulia fired gear with champagne like checking glasses perched on her rear essentially internet owes to break no actually what she did was essentially she capitalized on a historical cash cow situation where we there's already knowledge that this particular giller gaze at this interest or this idea this consumptive idea of the black woman's behind at all it hyper sexuality rates in the depths of the the perversity that we understand really underscores a lot of interactions in the slave experience rate with european amp black women all those things sort sort of come out in how capitalize it to focus on her rear she is not new to the game she has taken something that had already been long established undocumented and the and that gays have been not only given permission but sort of said this is the only way to access black women through their bodies do your rear entry manipulate manipulated it in order to make a mark for herself rage and so she has the design budi goudie rate in so in many ways it is desired but historically that goudie on black women simply men monstrous i'd like to add to that you know can eat your brought up the issue but shots and whatnot in his like and this is not new either i'm actually thinking in the nineteenth century of the bustle particular design the victorian era that gave the impression specifically take for white elite women to look like actually having rear and i do believe that that came out of the emergency sarah baartman and the hotline lena shows absolutely so i think we've always been dealing with that so called appropriation that idea as you you know my fellow scholars are saying that people want to get the the black woman's booty or the black woman slipped without actually scene on black women and what does that mean i'm also thinking because getting back to the issue of sexuality one of the things that while we're talking and i actually was thinking back to this atrocious movie called venus noir is a french film i now you're mentioning can you know well let me just this is why natasha's work is so important here about what it needs to bartman at the center of her own story of it was just the absolute worse of a completely completely silenced sarah baartman is what we got in that film i also thought it was very interesting and maybe maybe this is just you know you we know what we think about booty because the actress they actually had no offence to her didn't really have a buddy i like what was the catholic about unto itself what we consider to now could you tell the audience what that what that film was supposed to was at a documentary or what was that statue of film it was a french language the feature film by filmmaker who did the movie blue is it's the warmest color did that controversial film about lesbian love he actually did an actual film about sarah baartman was called venus venus noir and it came out in two thousand eleven and actually either two thousand ten two thousand eleven i've always found on a very interesting that it came out during the bicentennial art when i arrive in europe there's some she said about that and it it it was supposed to tell her story except i think it really highlighted how didn't because the actress her name is yerma galkina tara she was at the africa cuban she was a cast to play a sarah baartman and she hardly you had any any any words in the.

You can't always be positive absolutely. It's always good to keep a positive mindset. you're. GonNa stay in. That dark spot very long time it's me. I know I've been there.

forget the number of churches opencast ever heard of facing the giants fireproof sheer whip Baptist church behind the S. here serving the Community Zion combine the other two megachurches in town also seek out to serve the lease these see Albany has a growing population the relocates here from surrounding Communities Suggests America's Bacon yes that's a real name and Sasser also a real name but the people that come here often find themselves relocating to the west part of town or north of it where businesses have grown the country club is located in crime rates are not three times the national average us in the east and south side but that's why today on disruptive advocate we talk with Joshua Nelson pastoring ministering on the east side of the city on to rebuild and revive a community through church programs in collaboration with city officials when I asked him what he thought when he relocated to Albany this is what he had to say arb- lived here for two years and you know Albany's very historic city you know especially with civil rights is a place known for Dr King Coming here ear being arrested learning from Albany from Albany Movement and actually having quote unquote failed here actually forced him to learn what he did wrong and it turned him into the man that we know today so Albany has a stigma of like kind of being a vacuum for just I don't know just this kind of mediocrity in a way you know and it's kind of the stigma of the city and thus stigma can be seen by the type of questions people ask or the Google rhythm on the web if you search for Albany Georgia Google the number one question asked is what is the crime rate in Albany when he first moved to Albany just told me that he was battling with Russians from people such as why are you here or are you military there are two naval bases close to Albany one in the outskirts of the city and another one in Columbus about seventy miles away people didn't like saying they were from Albany their pride in the city had vanished he told me some of it's coming back says Josh since is tried to come rebuild and restore historic community but people are not looking for public officials only to rebuild the city they're looking at their ministers to having a couple of months churches in the area Albany residents look intently at those who proclaim to follow Jesus and see how they decide to help but it's hard to do so says Josh when your job is not require any of that you're not getting paid to do anything extra you know what I'm saying I mean you know the conference is expecting you to do they're going to church to preach to do permeating visit members I mean it's not really in your job description for a half to go into community so you can get caught up and just doing you know the normal on paper job description that's been given to you churches without community though die yeah I mean you have to have a vision for the place I mean you can't do evangelism without knowing your community right so I think to me it just was a natural step to really be ingrained in deeply involved with what was happening in my city for as the city grows on my church would grow how was your experience than waiting to a city that you kind of have weariness your being here two years while have you discover since done a lot of myself you know just battling with Whoa I should stay or should I go you know I've dealt with just the the sadness of leaving where I was before wondering probably want to stay kind of taking about a year to release say okay fine I'm going to actually you know say this is my home and get it get in in in the in the muck and begin to do something so you kind of deal with that but it's just been a lot of trying to understand the people understand where I fit in you know a lot of that takes time and oftentimes you get frustrated because you know as you're at yet to do these things or have been studying the same what you've been studying and I'll see the importance of being the committee don't see the importance of you know mainly with people or whatever else you have to kind of like up in bring people along said just push forward by yourself and that's the hardest thing right now says that was one of the hardest things right now dealing with people and members that may not be want to participate I decided to ask Josh what was one of his hardest experiences dealing with church members well I mean you know I've had some tough experiences with the storm we definitely goes I forgot to mention that Albany is also prone to tornadoes and hurricanes time means so there you go but I think a storm that Bruce and the church is probably even more taxing for me when I had a situation where you know one the members just didn't see eye to eye he was you know being very disruptive but in the negative sense I would say and just would not you know vol protocol and ended up getting so upset he couldn't take it got up and just he just was talking to my attorney to me you know you're the reason the church is not growing or the reason churches failing you know and Tim his wife got up and they just they left hadn't seen it never seen him since you know you're dealing with the pushing these ideas as them seem pushing against their tradition of but actually for us move moving from the call of God and people resisting it you just see the devil's at work and it really is discouraging and if you're not close to God it can really break you you know I've had depression uses really sad but you have to get through those cop tapa experiences in that heart thing dealing with people that don't want to work in the committee thirty people from his own church pushing to go work with the public sector and find some partners there after the break we find out who josh is working with right now and I started a fruitful relationship that led to the garden.

"Episode, two hundred thirty three. Welcome to data skeptic podcast about data science and fake news from an algorithm respect. Years, your host high polish coming to you from Grand Rapids, Michigan. The first show entirely hosted by text to speech algorithm. This is data skeptic today we're going to be discussing a piece of software called deep fakes. The deep of course alludes to deep learning in the fixed part, describes the function of the software, it maps, one person's face onto another person's body. Now, I've put a few links in the show notes. You might wanna check out. They're all safe for work, and they demonstrate this in as you will see, and as we'll discuss in the interview, a human inspector can pretty quickly tell these your fix, that's by today's technology anyway. But if you'll indulge me, I'd like to speculate a few years down the road. Maybe a decade could be more. But at some point in this battle of generator versus discriminator, the generator will win with certainty. There will come a day when algorithms generate videos that are indistinguishable from real videos right now instead of. Recording his introduction. I could go out to the Grand Rapids nightlife and do something deeply responsible that could be videotaped and uploaded to YouTube or maybe wouldn't be on YouTube. Now that's not gonna happen, but it could the laws of physics, don't prevent it. And if it were videotaped that videotape would exist, there's some configuration of bits on disk that when decoded and turned into video would produce a convincing in that scenario real video, and we have no reason to suspect that there won't be an algorithm that can one day compute exactly that ordering of bits or at least you know, one close enough within the manifold of videos that seemed consistent with reality. We're not there yet. Of course, I mean, did you see what they did? Carrie Fisher? That was a little creepy, right? And there's going to be a lot more creepy stuff in the future, but I'm putting you guys on notice, okay, you're my data skeptics. Get out there and spread the word, let people know these are coming. And when they start appearing start helping people under. Stand the technology. There's going to be a lot of fake news based on fake videos. It's just a question of win. One last thing before we start as I announced last week on the show, we're looking for an intern. I've put up a few details at the data skeptic dot com blog. So check that out. We received a couple entries this week. I have not yet. Thank us for plying. Everyone's going to get a confirmation and we're going to make a decision probably roundup Tober I or so at least that's when we'll start reviewing things. So you've got till the end of the month to get that in. My first name is sway. Last name is Lou. I'm an associate professor at the computer science department college of engineering and applied science university at Albany state university of New York. I was very eager to talk with you on the show. Once I discovered your research, undetected fake videos specifically these deep fakes. But before we get into detection, would you mind giving us a definition? What are deep fakes, deep fate is a family of. Recently waza based technology to synthesize. We'd ills in particular, seems the size of wheels in wish the faces in those wheels are replaced with some synthesized phases of NADA person. You can sink about the hours of the vague as a translation system, automatic translation system. If we have a translation software or like Google translate, we import a sentence English and on the other side of the algorithm, it will put a sentence in, for instance, Chinese and who centers Sara same underlying message defer in the representation..

"Welcome back to chips with everything i'm jordan erika weber if you're like me and my producer you've heard the phrase fake news bandied about so much by politicians and media outlets that's begun to lose its meaning some argue that the public has become apathetic to the problem of fake news a kind of learned helplessness where we feel like we can't do anything about it so we just don't try but researchers want to help in whatever way they can is sway lou on social professor at concise department at the college of engineering and the plies at university at albany state university of new york my see way and his colleagues ming ching chang unusually recently developed a method of detecting fake videos well early this year the emergence of this deep fake called my attention actually had called a lot of attention from the media part of the because does the way this can fake wheels can be generated so easily with this software you know people have seen some malicious use of this software for generating pornographic videos or actually making potentially making videos will altering people's view certain events i'm sort of foreseeing a large social impact of this line of technology so as always we do as a researchers in digital media friends where we want to do is warm of first line of defense here so dow's when i started thinking about if there is i need tactics that we can use to tact of your husband generated using this software so these scientists have begun to notice fake videos popping up on youtube but how exactly did they go about figuring out how to expose them so what we do is after you know only we collected a lot of the defame generates the wheels on youtube will also generate we don't we got a copy of the software ourselves with play was the software we also augmented a little bit so we have ability of generating fake deep fate wheels ourselves one day after also looking at video i always get a feeding that some part of the wheel is not right and then at that moment i revise all faces synthesized by the software they simply do not blink and that's not moral and then we realized that there is a fundamental reason that is because all this fake wheels are generally by a deeply learning hours them so the beat the deep learning hours using similar things so what they did is they actually find faces say your target faces person hey you give this autism many many images person a possibly you know meetings of and then the hours will starting to learn what looks like person now typically we got images from internet and we got the image of person a on internet and possibly this person or somebody posing his images on internet only say lack those good images and the images typically ms images with no is close so we will have an algorithm that can keep tacking up linking i in the video and then whenever we see a wheel that is do not blink as much as we expected then w maybe a fake one.
