Fresh update on "alfred" discussed on Fantasy Feast: 'Eatin
"Next One's interesting. I haven't watched too that much haven't noticed that Tyler higby was a guy that that you're down on. So I'm down on him only because of how people are elevating him in draft this year based on how he finished last year. So he had an entirely strange year and you can't really blame a guy for not getting much of a chance to I two thirds of the season. And then finally get it a chance and acting like his stat line was rob Gronkowski when he was by far the top tight end in fantasy in real life in receptions in yards in all of it in like second half November and December he won people a lot of leagues if they kind of latched onto him. So it's been kind of default to say well, that carry over and who the heck is Gerald Everett and tyler hippies the man. and. I I don't think there's anybody who I lowered more in my ranks at least relative to how many people we play at the position than tyler had them in my top ten originally because I was like sure. And then I watched exactly what it looked like on film and I'll tell you what it looked like was. Our offense is broken in L. A. R. Offensive Line's stopping anybody. We can't really throw the ball down the field anymore we better run I don't know veteran too tight end a lot. We better have a lot of extra blockers in there and we better be ready with little safety valve throws to Tyler higby and it worked like a charm and he made a bunch of plays after the catch and it looked like. I don't know like. I'm trying to think like Jordan Cameron it looked like SORTA. Any every man. I don't WanNa say Darren fellows last year because Darren feels a lot bigger and a lot older and a lot slower and you know basically scored touchdown unless you kind of look like any tight end could have done what he did. And so I'll say. It could happen again but do we think that the rams best offense is a too tight end kind like smash them up throw little outlets throw little throwback screen sedans like. What Sean mcvay wants to be to say nothing of the fact that it all happened when Gerald Everett was hurt and he'll be back. So I don't have higby inside my top twelve titans. I'm not drafting on. The last guy we're going to get into a on our draftkings avoid list, for DFS is David Johnson he got traded to the Houston Texans. I'll say this I'm GONNA put this out there challenge Chris. If any listener can find a run I want say the Arizona cardinals replying hat the Tampa Bay? Bucks. And David Johnson had a carry where he almost looked like he was in quicksand leading. He looked like he could not move I. Remember thinking right there. Wow He is done i. mean he can't run it was I can't really exact play but like he wasn't moving, you want the there was a whole he wasn't going remember thinking like that's about as bad of a run as you'll see from an NFL running back. So I'm with you I, know that the Texans are hyping up. I saw even just that one play was highly concerning me last year. Yeah and All, the caveats that seem to always apply to David Johnson still apply got hurt early in the year. So it's hard to know why he was doing an Alfred Morris Tribute Act as he was playing in the in the first part of the year obviously getting hurt missing the second half and getting benched before he got hurt for Kenyan drake..

Twitter Will Be Fun Today - The College Kids Who Hacked Into Twitter
"Today's guests. His Hip Awan CEO of Afani. Secure and private cell phone service locum his Heeb. Thank you Laura for home. You'll show. You were one of the investigators in touch with the young people who hacked twitter last week and gain control of prominent accounts, including those of Joe. Biden Obama Elon Musk and others as well as those of crypt companies like coin, base and finance, and when they had control those accounts, they were soliciting bitcoin from twitter users. How did you get in touch with the hackers? So Laura be in like. four-time itself, so then after I was so pissed off that angry that I said I need to solve this problem, and so I've entered into a form that relates how they have those accounts holiday getting pretty much all the ring of how they operate so. When you say that they had had your twitter account, nor they have my Sim Sark four times. Okay, and when you say Sim, swaps just described that in case, listeners does up. Does improper pretty much. What happened is like someone will take the form so the underground market like think about Ebay, but like I knew democracy with information. So you said your name, your information social security number your call logs your life, your life, location or anything on you. If I say hey, I need to find out for Laura Shane telephone number, and they'll give me telephone number will give me a call loss to give you. An everything comes through telephone numbers of numbers unique, and then if I say. Say Hey. I need to take the phone number 'cause I need so they will just prophet abuse him that I control, and I need to pay them few hundred dollars now. Your formula not work anymore because I had control of Sim card, so then I use that telephone number to get into a g mail, facebook and twitter, so if you go on twitter, new likely rescinded to email our number. If it's telephone number you've got. Someone's adopted very common technique deployed across US for a long time. So. The twitter hack twitter said that their employees had been socially engineered, and that's how these hackers gained control the systems. Are you saying that? Some twitter employees have their account. Sim swapped like how how does that you or Simspon tried? These people relate to the twitter Hack Greg? You wanted to ask me like how to get in touch with them so I'm trying to understand. You, that of analysis himself, so started going into the industry into this form than trying to see how they operate and to Dodd funny, so which will provide the made acadia that probably that cannot be Simpson's. That's what we did an offer that. VINCI START GETTING customers. Have you would actually getting a lot of attempts to do so? You would getting Dempsey pretty much every week that someone prior to himself or customer, trying to like hack into our system and mend the failed. I got in contact David Mayhew call, they would email method you and they will do all kinds of attacks. You know they'll try to let pen to pen tests. The everything did and obviously in one of the cases restocked immunity stopping messing around it right I know what you're up to. And after I got in touch with him to signal and author that the lake. Not I won't say that become a friend, but I told them why you're doing this. Thank you know you should not do this multiple hackers and they said okay. If you don't have anything to do pretty much, does it okay? Why don't you get a job? He said job, and then they start feeding the all information to proved at. Legit than a lot of information and how I was getting information from a lot of talk of the vote. And when it all this happened that you got in touch with him and had it happened late four five months ago. Okay They were diverging to me not just for this hot, but for other purposes to ride like a kid discount. Lot of databases beach everyday, so they wanted to see that a hey. If I'm interesting in the database, just wanted to work pretty much. is not money. It's also about ego that they wanNA prove something that they would do something so. So Mike Context for not hacking, but they'll be into the songs that they had access to. That follows A. Up I didn't want to. Excessive today were passing me. Hey, today. This is for sale to do sports on tomorrow. This person's so on the deal stood attack. I got a message that will be fun today, and when this message I thought he'd be like a distributor barks. Like scam scams, and but after why? That's all the kind. We got attacked ten. Finance Accounting Noble at depth one time. I taught that it's just a third party API like you know you have like you know where your schedule. The in everything I thought that may be compromised, and that's how they got author. Riley said No. We have everything. A screen chart I tweeted screen shot, and after that is blue. Well and so, who are these people? who were the people involved in the actual twitter hack? The difficult to identity like frankly I don't know I can speculate, but obviously because someone security and privacy I don't want to speculate but I can tell you wanting like college. Kids are maybe like someone between eight, eighty, twenty, one, twenty, two, and they are video gamers. They'd metaphor armed, and they found fascinating for them. Dislike a game like you go into video game on you killing you do stuff for them. It's like that. They, probably living in some way or radio patterns right now in basement. Who does not even know anything? and. They just do it for fun. Obviously, money's there, too, but most of fun for them is just a today. And so originally. The way you got in touch with them was they were targeting these different cell phone accounts, and what does motivation and taking over the different cell phone accounts so for account you can actually to when people take account, they can actually destroy you financially emotionally ended up recently, though by financial I can say they can get into your county bank accounts ticket by Tiptoe through that they can buy a lot of levels of securities financially they can do. obviously going to facebook in an email to, and then they donor all information from your facebook, and then they start blackmailing you that. Hey, likely when a lot you have done this like you know you have this. And you have to pay me this information out there and a lot of people would have to pay them the money because they don't pay the money. They looted operation right so and then third party. They just become Parson Mike is the word processing me. blender used to take my county new. They cannot get anything, but they wanted to talk to me. Just fun for them like people. Some people are sick. Like how did they pick you out of all the different people that they could torture also the league, if not just me like everyday hundreds of people to get them soft, though I'm just one of them on average, every second medical become victim of since up, not himself but cybercrimes so. But I had the impression that this was primarily targeting crypto currency people, but you're saying it's any bundled nor I think eighty percent of people who was himself to an entrepreneur L.! And the new in the cases of those people is it like personal vendettas that they're trying to? You can make more money by a hacking Lord cell than anything else you know. is one thing but Lloyd is like one number one target Loyd and has professionals league doctor medical doctor then. In Lord other number one targets in suffers, and what is the motivation for targeting lawyers Don. Money don't happen. How do they monetize that Yeah, so I tell you doctors, basically busy less tech, savvy and rich. It's that easy to find out any doctor information. You can find out who the best doctor in the city and you consume. Stop Him. And once you get into that account, you can transfer money between accounts who can be that people have been? Going into the count, Simpson calling the bank making via transfer, and then just checking accounts. That's pretty common. For for doctors to clinics have a lot of money. If you'RE GONNA clinic, instead he did even like five hundred hundred million dollar distorted the front because Alaska. Election for them. Okay, so let's go back to the twitter hack. They were some names that were identified of people who are involved these names. In The New York Times article that quoted you as a source one was kirk. There were some other people ll and ever so anxious. Who were these people? And how did they know each other? So they don't. Know the Best Birdie. They just hang out on rooms like chatting channels lake similar people on developed talked with you. The pirates channels. We had people a go if they WANNA have information to the document industry for finding information. If I want someone associated Gordon dissipates on one. Don't get call for these people trade information. And you asked about like a leg. Imagine your lawyer and you are fighting for my open kiss. We begin go to the website by that long since he will. They are who they're talking to the day can. Make some delays on them. That's one thing but other than that. These people are just a game as they would play like you know different video games and kick the die, who was basically a source of the rate industry rock says they'll be extra agents, and they are in room for longtime and David. Obviously you want you want something you don't trust the new guy. The new guy who is basically the main culprit punching the entity because multiple reasons, but the main guidance, the just which had A. Reputation. If you say you want a username of Laura at Laura, Shannon inactive. You may not trust kick, so you can do this. Middle Diane Tell Them Hey, can you hold the money for because you have a good relation? Because like Ebid forums generally have a petition systems. You know so then you ve into this guy like you know every inch it He went to care. Concur depended he the credit employees but I. Don't think he was employees. And, then he gave him the concert start building. So this is just a middleman. He was just broken deals. You tell them what you want. He was just keep his car and transfer the money. The is completed that fall. And so so kirk was was saying that he was a twitter employees, but as you said, you don't think that he was, and he was essentially selling valuable twitter accounts, and if people didn't trust, Kirk, they would use ever so anxious as their middleman to get the different twitter handles that they wanted. Is that what happened? That's correct. Good Gig, only unharmed on in July of. July it was very recently. that. He actually came so obviously not trust someone admit. That soon. July seventh in the New York Times article are. Limited okay, but all right so but ever so anxious. How to longer reputation and. And that was who people are transacting with. And so then. How did BITCOIN come into this? All. On these things happen through Bitcoins, so the way it started was they were selling. This twitter handles four bitcoin and then later. How did the scam change? So I. Personally is what I personally think. That kid was in touch with the employees who was giving these accounts. For a few thousand dollars. And then. Either bribed him. Architects. Social Engineering Him. Legs because like hey can do. This is my. This is purely my speculation that you're working for so long. He warned the trust. Any may have said Hey, can you log in forbid I wanNA see how it looks like something that he made it something so the guy is pasta on. Hey, just do it, but don't do anything crazy. You Know Butt kicked. Decide Okay, man I can just go on or can also go online with I can do it I can. Can also go on like you know. All those accounts crazy. That's what I okay, but you're just speculating. You don't have any proof that or or do you know what? I don't have any proof of that I don't approve. Have critic probably do it? And Kirk? Is probably a guy called coup, which is on a farm for a long time, so he speculated that he someone that was in the industry for wide, but not. Approved that. Kicked it, but from all the action than everything it all points to cook. Irene so in a moment we're gonNA. Talk a little bit more about what happened. Exactly I, in sight, twitter and scam, but First a quick word from the sponsors who make this show possible. How much in fees are you paying?

Back to my conversation with his Heeb Awan. So, we don't know exactly how. Kirk got into twitter's internal systems. However Once. He or she did then what'd he do or or she do with their power? So. Kirk than they went to buy I think. Start with by notes I'm coin base. And the see your finance and he made it account Egypt first of all. What did it was did with other? Account. Okay, which means when you log in, it asks you to do a second type of security, which is hopefully. If you're in the crypto space, you have used something like Hugo, authenticate or key, and you're not using text message based second factor authentication. Where they sent a code your phone because otherwise if he gets swaps than than having no. Buyer so. Removed that and then keep going good thing. They added wall a secondary second. You know Autodata so now. I'll give example like you have my username seep, so they moved to a FE, and they're also removed. Jane, Email. And then they. Did possible reset. So the new email guard, the chain deposited garden the account. and. tweeted whatever they wanted. Well, and what were they tweeting? So, they were tweeting that you know. About Co. Ed Nineteen I believe like you know because of Covid, we like helping people. I don't remember the wording. Health Has Something and they said Back. And this is video any comments in YouTube. Actually they were so good that frankly sometime I get like you know Oh my God like the able to make it like a secondary thing. That's real you know and like, but this happens pretty commonly, and and it's happening for almost two years now i. It, really is the kind of thing where people think it's real I honestly. Had created a question for you, which is who are the people who are savvy enough to own bitcoin and know how to send it, but not savvy enough to spot. What to me seems like an obvious scam. Actually went on the Internet and are tweeted out this thing same thing I said like who are those people who can have sophisticated enough to buy Bitcoin, but knowledge to. Send. Bitcoin but I think leap Dick's everything. Like I agree people think okay. Let's give it a chance. You know it's like a lottery ticket. You know people may be, but they think what if this is true and other than that. If you like an must happening there, actually flaunted, be efforts on twitter. All the time with people are donating money on twitter, but they don't ask for anything they say hey, can you give me your Alfred Egland who this every day, so he will dollars to off fifty dollars for every person everyday. You'll say. Retreat this. I'll give you this money. So this happens right now and obviously As hit audible, read like you know when viewed come in people, people forget everything that you know. We have so many Ponzi scheme like so many scattered that happened that exist today could if I come to unity Laura investment scheme, which is a pretty good you know. He hit all the MACHIDA. But it only gives you five percent. You may not listen to that. Say Hey, Lord the Child who may tennis money tomorrow. You may skip everything. Cocaine is thousand and ten dollars tomorrow. Okay I'll take the risk from doing that. Hopefully I'm sure my listeners are savvy enough to know if it sounds too good to be true. But people do that I. Think I have estimated that around like maybe I. Just in this journal given us cam like. He put a lot of tens of millions of dollars and well not last week, but no, not over time overtime. Yeah, yeah, we'll be sending money, so there are enough food. I guess yeah over I mean for last week. The hackers did net about a little over thirteen bitcoin, which was about one hundred twenty thousand dollars, although analysts said that about twenty, thousand of it seems to have come from a suspicious address that they actually think controlled by the hackers to kind of make it look like this was legit and people were actually sending money. But then also by the way they could have netted more. However, Cuevas said that it did prevent more than one thousand customers from sending about two hundred and eighty thousand dollars worth of Bitcoin to the twitter hackers so oriented, so let's talk a little bit also about just what happened in twitter which was? Twitter blog posts. Hackers a targeted. Thirty accounts for forty five of those they reset the password and sent tweets from those accounts for eight of them. They actually downloaded that counts data, and then for thirty sixty legitimate direct message inbox, including one elected official from the Netherlands, and it was who. What do you think they could do with such information? I think it's A. Black, man that I've been talking to you about what happened with sin sopping. Let's think about it if you have first all that fool Phoolan that why didn't put? It wasn't like planned. I don't believe it was just like in the move in the heat of happened. BANDAIDS slaves. They clearly guy who just got drunken pretty might do everything but I think if you have access to like anyone, social media, proper social media like I have been I've received. Messages. And I but I don't believe that I think we have forged around. Believe the electoral, so, but if you have someone should media that maybe confidential information that can be misused by Stacey when leg if you do about it on dedic messages, a you know that's not confident that even with the journalist visceral broads. You know so I. Don't know who the information was. What fast, but that's video very very concerning and I believe this may happen on facebook or other social media from his. Because to same. Attack Factor. Yeah I definitely think that this is. One of those cases where it makes you want to just use encrypted social messaging APPS. Such as like signal or something, maybe what's up? So, let's just also talk a little bit about what we said before about how the hackers were able to remove two factor authentication on these accounts. Well, actually what they did I was. They changed the email address. And then the chain Laras Oh, actually bid on a there was A. There was an email. There was a blog post by somebody who had the at six twitter account, and they said they believed that the hackers change the address, but that when that happened, it did not send a notification to the original email address, but not I don't know if this person was surmising, you know six hundred interest in history, those belong to a hacker. Their the community of Hackers Gobi Twenty six hundred. That's like a court for hackers right. Not a quarterback, just like community for hackers and you were the hacker who ended up homeless anywhere. They will do attack into I think he would to. And he went into multiple you as homeless, but he was a hacker. And oxygen community belong to sixty name. Is this secretly off? I believe his name. And, but yes, but I think the first drift was removed and then. moved. To the letter. Control of it now thought it was the reverse, but either way. In Like for any of us who are in the crypto space who have been? Keeping up with our security and using things like Google. or UB and avoiding. Text message based to a or or any kind of to a based on our phone number. What? Can we take away from this like? Is there any advice that you have for Crypto? People on how they can protect themselves if the services that we use have loopholes like this. Let's not that'll be biased in obviously you know. Will. Finding here, but that's what we do, right. We work, but a lot. Actually I am surprised at how many a compromise them security argue out stocking some customer yesterday and they do You know an extra seat is probably the most I can tell you I know. We are making like a faces, but at same part exit. She's most prominent used offer manager for probably ninety ninety nine percent of the word. What would you recommend instead? Use a password manager, anything manager pretty much everything in the top five six. It stood, you know. Don't cheat on family plan. out on like those like a caveman. This company go with a better company. Even if you don't go the final leg, that's fine at least hell better company like Dourthouse I'm plan because no fan mace. You make you very vulnerable to now you're putting your own life on risk, but everyone who is in the time is. You know and the third party. Don't give out your telephone. Number molasses everywhere. You know like. Don't go to like you. Know have different email address if you want to. And you let you. At Google. Authentic get off your. There's something at one time I have statistics, said ninety five percent of people who are like major changes. Do not have to a fait. Sms I'm talking more to a and I think ninety nine percent of those are what you estimates to say. The people who've been additives Everyday I have started I deal with at least two or three people who get up everyday and came and we had some of the to affair, and I can get into that lot of people into the spark that they were not believe enough not to change it. please. Don't please don't be those people, but I can tell you like I've spent people and I said do this. Man How much time did it like five minutes six league. Logistics you Donald and APP, you know. have to familiar face. You know if you are very cautious, taken for a number, but I can tell you that Khomeini would make this mistake. Ordering will end and it you know, and in the end I did lose industry learn. That's was part. There was still use the same SMS to a fait. The dating did not happen to them. Again happened again. Because if it happens to once, you become more, you know your motorcycle getting out again. If they have found something and something, they just do for fun, and and you know what I because obviously I'm. Biased in a way that the. Customer. Time I've been a victim four times a feed Logar they can. What would you do? Please please please setup. SMS elected more music episodes into gear and please get family plan these I. Know You're saving their ten twenty dollars per months, but in the end you know if you call it a, it's like insurance. You can live without insurance to. But like you know. The one day you need insurance when you need it.
Road-tripping Post COVID-19
"Hi. It's Kim and fill with you a huge thanks for joining into a spatial episode exploring road tripping, and in this episode we discuss specific routes necessarily, but rather tuning to four experts, discussing the rise of road travel as broad as open and travel restrictions begins, as it made covid nineteen, and it is worth. Noting as the US started opening up their economies covid cases began to spike again in some areas by as much as twenty five percent, according to Alfred Christina Tunnel hit of World Medicine for the Americas. Then, Spain the has to be some sort of consideration in how people do a rug trip to minimize further spread. Well, that's what's attractive about Roger Christina's places with campsites and inherits social, distancing like national and state parks will be the preferred destinations. She also says many are allowing people in only by strict daily caps and reservations in some filler, even denying entry to out of state visit you normal, isn't it? Yeah, our first chat is with Joe from harvest hosts which will explain about shortly, but we should put it out there as it pops up during this episode. Commute a huge fan of Roger. I am indeed now we converted, and they'll DVD. G Ten diesel delivery van. And sadly it was just before the pandemic, so emmy use it, but since managed one road trip is restrictions lifted here in New South Wales in Australia. We went to cattle. Farm near applies cold Mudgee, which is nine for its produce in its wine now set up. Is The lady image on the website for these episode by the way, so you can have a look, but they had social distancing rules in place, Ville especially around the drop toilets, where everything had to be wiped down after used it with sanitizer, and if you were lining up for the lose your head to maintain that one point five major distance, but as for the site itself, it's a cattle farm. It was huge. It was so big. It was easy to Cape Away from his. Anyway. That's my story. We kicked up asking Joe. It's not about me if twenty twenty is a banner year for ride travel. Yes hard stop interviews over. Rarely is their question was such an easy answer? I think it was very speculative back in March. It was a lot of up in the air like Whoa. What's going to happen? Never win. Kinda paused. We saw memberships. New memberships really dropped off a cliff. Everyone was kind of nervous about the unknown. What we're seeing now. Is that everything's exploding in the RV world, so our business is up four hundred percent, or versus this time last year we're seeing rental companies like outdoorsy and RV share also up four hundred percent. So I think people are number one. They're ready to get back to traveling and number two. Are Beings a very safe way to do it. Even amidst this Cova crisis. What is safe for them being in your own RV in a spacious area. You know without crowds, so yes, I think this is the year I think this is the year, and I hope it lasts because you and I probably agree are pretty wonderful thing to do. Schori's in fact as offset. Every month during this covered lockdown I want to avoid anything that's hectic and I want to avoid expectation so jumping in the van for me, and just disappearing somewhere is is what I'm GonNa do the racist of the and moving forward. If I can be convinced, my husband to leave, he's job. Man That's so funny. We're about the same I I'm trying to convince my wife to leave her job for the same reasons, unlike this is our opportunity, just like be nomads and and travel right so. I wish you best of luck and. Thanks for that otherwise we could meet halfway. Just travel buddies so. You. You've done it for years just for those that haven't an dabbling NATO's in this world vein.

Like six years ago and the concept when our heads were like well, wouldn't it be nice to a road trip? It seems so freeing and like open an exciting. When we did it, we fell in love with it. I mean it really is like true unbridled freedom. You make a decision every day about whether you want goanywhere or not, where you WanNa go do you WanNa? Go East West North South. It's great right and for people like US I love traveling, but I don't like sticking to strict plans, Riley. I feel like travels most exciting where you let it take you at once and air travel doesn't do that hotel travel doesn't do that. You have to be very structured about where you're going to be in win, and in the RV like you wake up every morning and make your destiny
What does the future of the U.S.-Canada border look like?
"I want to turn. Our attention says that the border where the number of covert cases now tops two million. That's more than double the cases in any other to the latest ANA corona virus, emergency Arizona and Texas setting new records while over the weekend Florida reported is biggest one day increase in cases pandemic started. or That? Why is that? What we have very strong to on the southern border as you know with Mexico and we had some troops in Canada, but I'll find out about that. I guess it's equal justice to a certain extent. To how do you feel? About opening up the US Canada, border right now. I, guess would be not crate. That would put you squarely with a majority of Canadians who tell pollsters their extremely nervous as they watch our friends and neighbors to the south handling this pandemic. But while the corona virus has made the difference between our two countries obvious. Truth is that we've been drifting apart for a while now. And there's no better place to see that then at the border. And in the public sentiment for keeping shot. But what does that mean? As the week, stretch into months with crossings close to all the non essential traffic. For the communities who exist right next to one another, but on opposite sides of a line they used to cross every day barely thinking twice. How has the enforcement of the US Canada border changed over the last two hundred, years. And, what will it look like the future? Because if there's one thing, the history of this border has shown us. That when things changed, they never really go back to normal. They evolve. Just like the Kennedy US relationship, the porter is always changing. Pandemic might spark the most dramatic shift get. Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story.

Body cameras were supposed to make police accountable. Its backfired
"Protesters are demonstrating in hundreds of Cities Dominion interracial injustice and police brutality, but one of the things I was opposed to rain in the police. Cameras might actually end up encroaching on protesters privacy's. I'm Roger Chang and this is your daily charge. With me is seen at privacy expert, daily charge regular offloading. Alfred thanks for joining me. Hey, thanks for having me, Alfred. You've got a piece of looking at police. Body cameras in the concerns are now raising during these protests, but before we get to that. Let's back things up a bit. You talk about how body cameras with the police took off. So Body Cams really came into the police terminology around two, thousand, fourteen, twenty, fifteen, when there were protests over the police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, where people were asking for the same things that they're asking for now six years ago when they were saying that we want more police accountability, we want more police transparency and they believe that body cameras would be technology to help solve that if we have a camera on police officers at all times, then there's more evidence when police are doing anything that they're not supposed to be doing more evidence of police misconduct no five years down the line. We've really seen that that hasn't really been the case. There's been studies that have shown that. There isn't really more police accountability just because technology is there and we're seeing now that you know. These protests are evidence of that that even though you know about half the police departments in the country have body cameras equipped, but they are not making the major changes that they were supposed to be doing. Let's dig into that on paper. You've got a video recording police are doing so theoretically. That's supposed to create some accountability. Why hasn't that happened I? Think a big problem is that the body cameras were? And people assumed automatically that they would only be used in a certain way, and from what we've seen you know the transparency side of it is not there so even though these body cameras are equipped. You know it doesn't really mean that they're always recording. We've seen that in Kentucky during the protests when police shot and killed David Makati during a protest in Louisville Kentucky This was the protests over the death of George Floyd according to reports, there were no police body cam footage of that and the police chief was actually fired over the body. Cam's not being turned on at this. This incident and we take it a step further down. And we and we take it a step further down, and we check and see okay. What what about the incidents? Where Body Cams are turned on while in those incidents, police will do almost everything they can to prevent this footage from getting released an you know there's been cases where people who have been shot by police officers have had to sue the Police Department of get that their own footage released to the public, and you know we see from the case of McDonald in Chicago where it took more than a year for police. Police to release footage of the seventeen year old, getting shot sixteen times by Chicago police officers, and that put it wasn't even released to the public until a journalist sued for it, and it took you more than a year after he was killed by police for that footage to even get out there. That's an interesting point you raise. The footage is meant to hold police accountable. So how are the police justifying not releasing the videos? The reason want so difficult for this footage to be released because police are the ones controlling it. It's these videos are ending up in their database as these videos. Videos are ending up at their whim and again it's also they're ones who control whether or not. The cameras turned on and that that's part of the big issue of it. So in one case the NYPD had sued not release any footage that it would violate state laws against releasing police records without a court order, so it's it's a lot of things I I've seen in other cases before where they've just argued. We don't have the bandwidth to release all this footage. Public records request because they have to comb through all this footage and then put it on a flash, drive or A. DVD or something like that to release to the public and I've seen police departments argue that you know we don't have the ability to do that right now. With all these requests that are coming in, let's talk about these protests. You make a point. That's a bit counterintuitive. The footage is post. Keep listening check, but they may actually be used against the protesters. Talk a little bit about that. So several cities like Baltimore New York and Seattle actually have policies against using body cameras at First Amendment events like protests. The reason why is because you don't want to be potentially identified or tracked after the fact and these body cameras can do a really good job of doing that, and that is now the privacy concern that comes with body cameras is that they're more being used. Used as tools of surveillance, and they are tools of accountability, so the argument right now is that we should have these body cameras turned on at protests, because of all these incidents of police brutality that we've seen against protestors, but it kind of hangs in the balance with this debate of while we also don't want these cameras to be used against us later down the line. Some cities like Seattle. I've actually turned around on their policy against no body cameras at protests and said if you are out of protest, you should turn it on. The mayor issued an emergency order on Monday about it, but privacy advocates are kind of pointing out that that might not be the way that you want to
The Prestige Nolan
"From Chicago. This is film spotting. I'm Adam are and I'm Josh Larsen. Every magic trick consists of three parts first. Paul is cool. The pledge magician shows you sound olery columns bird or May that was Michael Cain right. We're done with the trip. That was Michael. Cain with some of the opening narration from Christopher Nolan's The prestige we revisit the directors fifth feature as part of our Nolan who've review this week in addition to that we're going to recommend to new films that recently came to the od the vast of night and the painter and the thief that more. Are you watching closely ahead on film spotting? Welcome to film spotting. Josh in an alternate timeline. We'd be spending this post Memorial Day weekend show singing the praises most likely of fast and furious nine. Oh Yeah I'm sure I'm sure we'd both be huge fans I haven't been keeping up with. What would have been released because it mostly depresses me. So this is to me after nine atom as the as the real fans would call it. Don't let Debbie here that that was supposed to come out because she'd probably forced me into a fast and furious marathon at home in memory of it instead. Of course we are talking about films new. Vod We're going to do a little golden brick spotting in this episode. Indeed there are two new films that meet the criteria for our golden brick or D- that's are overlooked or under unforeseen film of the year. Honor that we give to a mostly newer at least new to US filmmaker. We've both seen the new documentary the painter and the thief and I'm also going to recommend the vast of night that's a low budget sci-fi thriller that comes to Amazon Prime this weekend. Of course we're also pinning all our hopes of summer movie season on the theoretically opening tenant the latest from Christopher Nolan. Somehow the word theoretically there just seems so appropriate when talking about Christopher Nolan Anyway. That is still scheduled as of this recording anyway to come to theaters on July seventeenth seven. Seventeen chosen for being a gallon. Drome like the title of the film. Josh I'm sure that you knew that and we can trust. Christopher Nolan is GonNa try to be Oh so clever. Right yes now. A surprise. Our Own Nolan who've review which has revisiting all of Nolan's films is currently scheduled to wrap up in time for that July seventeen release otherwise all of this preparations going to be for naught. Joshua we need ten to get to the big screen in the meantime. We're going to get to his two thousand six film. The Prestige perform this feat in a manner and never before seen by yourselves or any other audience anywhere in the world. Odeon SELECTA is trees topnotch. You'd celebrate a real magician. Tries to weaver something you got something other. Magicians will scratch their heads over spoke. You have such a tweet as you're gonNA remember me for what happened. Just mentioned triggered overseen. I need to know how he does it. He has no. It's real every great. Magic trick consists of three acts. The first act is called the pledge every Great Christopher Nolan movie consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called the pledge. The filmmaker shows you something ordinary with his fifth feature set in late nineteenth century London. It's two rival. Magicians Hugh Jackman sophisticated. Showman. Robert in Jira and Christian Bale's committed professional Alfred. Borden the filmmaker shows you these characters. Perhaps he asks you to watch them to see if they are indeed real on altered normal but of course they probably aren't. The second is called the turn. The filmmaker takes these characters and makes them part of something. Extraordinary are period piece becomes gothic science fiction a meditation on the moral limits of science in pursuit of knowledge the consequences of obsession. Now you're looking for the secret but you won't find it because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You WANNA BE FOOLED. But you wouldn't clap yet because one of our magicians finally winning isn't enough. Our minds have to be blown. That's why every magic trick has a third act. The hardest part the part we call the prestige fairly early. In the film. Bordon's life Sarah played by Rebecca Hall reveals. He's going to be a father. He shows her the trick. That's going to put food on their table. A bullet catch which he performs for her to prove. It's safe like any of us. Observing great trick. She wants to know the secret and insist. She can't comfortably allow him to do it unless she understands the mechanics of it he relents she replies disappointedly once. You know it's so obvious Josh. Any rewatch of the prestige requires that you know the twist and equipped with that knowledge. It does all seem well pretty obvious like Sarah did that Lee disappointed or even more impressed with Nolan sleight of hand. I am really glad you asked this question because it helped me clarify a little bit. It helped me locate one of the reasons. Why and I'll stay at say at the front here. This is still topped here. Nolan for me really love this film. I think it's incredibly strong. But your question. Help me locate one of the reasons why. I might have liked it a little bit less this time around. And it's not so simple as knowing the twists or knowing the surprises because confession. I don't think I watched the prestigious since two thousand six and I had mostly forgotten how everything unfolded now. Yeah the hints and clues pieced together in advance in a way that I did not in. Oh six but it's different from not knowing anything so I was still pretty much in the dark as this movie began. So it's not just that I knew the answers. It's and I'm not sure it disappoints even in terms of its reveals but in comparison is something like as before we started recording. You had mentioned the six cents so comparison to something like that which we did revisit just last year And is another case where it it hugely depends on its reveals. Its twists turns. It surprises
Stratton brothers trial began - May 5, 1905
"Nineteen O five the stratton brothers trial for the murder of Thomas Farrow began. The straightens case marked the first time anyone was convicted for murder and Britain based on fingerprint evidence the study of fingerprints and their use in identification picked up considerably in nineteenth century Europe. That said the history of fingerprinting is inextricably linked with colonialism and racism in Eighteen fifty-eight William James Herschel. An Englishman became an officer in the Indian Civil Service. He was posted to Present Day. Junkie POOR IN INDIA THAT YEAR. He had a local man. Place his handprint on a contract. In lieu of signature personal goal was to keep the man from being able to deny his signature at a later. Time Herschel continue to require handprints from locals on contracts eventually realizing that he only needed prints from the index and Middle Finger. He was convinced that fingerprints were unique and permanent and believe they could be used to prove someone's identity other. Europeans also focused on the potential for fingerprints use and identifying suspects in solving crimes building on others work eugenicist and polymath Sir Francis Golden identified patterns in fingerprints and published a classification system for them the use of fingerprints and forensics didn't really take off until the turn of the twentieth century as he's a little hot in. Tundra both are credited with creating the Henry classification system for fingerprinting by nineteen one. Scotland Yard also known as the London Metropolitan Police established a new fingerprint bureau. The next year the first recorded trial in England that relied on fingerprint evidence took place in the trial. Harry Jackson was sentenced to several years in prison for burglary in London. After his fingerprint was presented as evidence in court just two years later the first murder trial in England in which fingerprints were used as evidence began Thomas. Farrell was found dead after a robbery and his wife and died a few days later. An empty cashbox was found in the apartment. As well as two black mass a fingerprint was found on the cashbox and inspector Charles Collins from Scotland. Yard's fingerprinting bureau examined it but the print didn't match the Faroes the officers or anybody in the bureau's file but witnesses reported seeing two men in the area on the morning of the crime and police track down and arrested Albert and Alfred Stratton. Their prints were taken an Alfred. Right thumbprint mashed the print on the cashbox. The brothers trial began on May fifth. Nineteen O Five. The fingerprint was the strongest evidence linking them to the crime scene and using fingerprints. Evidence was still a relatively new technique but collins explained the classification of fingerprints to the jury. And how he had never found two prints that had more than three characteristic in common in this case. Alfred Sprint and the cashbox print had multiple similarities. The Stratton brothers were found guilty of murder. And sentenced to death by hanging fingerprint. Evidence has been used in criminal investigations in cases ever since though techniques and technology in the field have changed significantly.

Dynamite: Audrey Kurth Cronin on New Technology and Terrorism
"Nobel envisioned dynamite transforming cityscapes and blasting railways buildings and tunnels into existence. And when he finally got dynamite right it did just that power the industrial age and made the modern day metropolis possible but it also led to new forms of terrorism. Anarchists used dynamite to assassinate political leaders including the Russians are Alexander. The second that fearful blast in eighteen eighty. One was in fact the very first suicide bombing on this episode. I talked to security expert. Audrey Kurth Cronin to argue Nobel story is also the story of our current times once again backyard inventors spearheading new technology. But that technology is being used in lethal ways that we've never seen before. Cronin is the director of the Center for Security Innovation and new technology at American University in Washington. Dc. She also wrote the book power to the people of open. Technological innovation is arming tomorrow's terrorists. She believes that new technologies like Cyber Weapons Three D. printing artificial intelligence are this century's version of dynamite. So how do we encourage people to keep innovative while making sure those groundbreaking inventions? Don't open the door to new forms of violence. Audrey Kurth Cronin. Thank you so much for joining us on American innovations. Thanks for having me so I WANNA start talking a little bit about your book which is power to the people how open technological. Innovation is arming. Tomorrow's terrorists how did you get into this project in the first place? Well I was looking at the relationship between the late nineteenth century and the current day and seeing a lot of parallels between the incredibly fast innovations that were occurring with technology. Then and also today so I wanted to write about a breakthrough technology. I wanted to write about game. Changers that surprise people especially technologies with great potential for good that can also be lethal and then there were two specific. Things that happened. I was reading a book that quoted Nobel Alfred Nobel arguing that is explosives would make war so terrible that it could never occur and then of course we went straight into world war one and the irony of that the horror of that really struck me and then on the same day. I just happened to be watching a youtube video of Mark Zuckerberg defending facebook. You know wish along with Youtube and twitter and other things like what's up has been used by terrorist groups like Isis in ways that are horrifying and just like Alfred Nobel Zuckerberg was struggling with the unintended consequences. So I saw kind of a direct line between the nineteenth century. Innovators and today's technology giants both of them created brilliant world inventions but they also sometimes fell short in thinking about how their creations could be misused. That's why I think you're just a perfect guest for us not only because we've just had this whole sequence about Nobel's life which we're going to get to but you know it's a big theme of this show that connecting past stories to the present day. That's a lot of what we do with these kind of interview segments. I think that's a really important property of your work. I mean how much given the technology does change so much. I mean it's almost the definition of technologies. It's constantly changing. How much can we draw on the lessons of the past to make sense of the present or near future innovations? That are coming. Well I would say a lot. More than we do not to say that there are exact parallels between the two eras in the eighteen hundreds and in the present but there are a lot of things that echo or that are common between them and we have a tendency to believe that everything we're experiencing today is completely unprecedented and that's not true so finding the balance between understanding the history and seeing how people dealt with new technologies in the past and then the things that we're facing today that's very important to me and frankly stephen that's one of the things. I love about your show because it does put things in context. Thank you very much. That's very nice. You say but there is so much news in the technology space and by definition is you know innovation is just constantly driving us to new places But you know there's a lot from the past where we have gone through similar patterns in a way right where we see for instance. In this case we see technologies designed for one purpose at ended up getting utilized in all these kinda surprising ways. Some of them not particularly positive ways That that's an endless pattern. The history of technology that people invent something for one reason and then other people use her for entirely different reasons so trying to be able to project forward in thinking about how these tools will get exploited. I think is a really important skill to have. And that's why your work. I think so valuable as

He said talk to me and tell me that you can't get out of this trouble. It's there's a way what what Jesus Christ he died on the Cross. Portia he went to the Cross and suffered and whatever is bothering you. Give it to him and he can go down tonight at that. Go down to your feelings and and hug you and bring you up hot at their. He understands you. Imagine a my son for five years will say that to me. I don't know where he got that wisdom from but he seems to me that he knew exactly what was wrong with me. Maybe Jesus is talking through him but he he said those saying semi and of course. I didn't listen. Sometimes I think if a man don't listen to wisdom to people telling you things the way to cries I think you're gonNA have to fall a little further down in your life fall way down deep down into the pit until you get rid of your pride and start looking for help. That's the only way you will. We as native men can understand are looking that Christ. Jesus so I think that that's what happened to me. I didn't understand. I didn't want to come to Kreis and I needed to fall. Further down emotionally economically losing my respect. Losing my character losing everything to allow astounded pit. Only WE I. I could learn anything and My son Jr he. He used to say things like that and he hugged me. And Tell me that I love you and of course that would say son. Don't talk to me light that I fe- too close to I care for you. I do all these things for you. Don't talk to me that way. I know my way my ways right. You chose away that your mom sway that that's how my way. My ways following the traditional ways but later on I learned that Jesus Crisis Way Truth and the life. That's the way I learn in in my experience What the background I I. One day was going to flag south and I used to work over there and I walked away from my family and I thought I was okay. I had heard trump made money. I had a job our stress. Okay I live okay. I Ate Okayo hungry. I was starving. I wasn't in the heat burning flames or any of those things I just described but I was in the pit one day. I was striving and all of a sudden I started to cry. I didn't know why and I got out of my vehicle on eighty nine. It's very busy highway. Pull off way to decide no was crying and I didn't know why was crying. Got Back in a vehicle and I left again. Went to work a couple of weeks later. Same thing happened to me. I crying and I started feeling this awfulness of what I was. Storing the awful feeling of my sense what I did to my wife for. It to my my children. What I did to people that I hurt ally the cheating and all these things that I have done and avoiding things and and I had this awful feeling silent and I was went to some people I really love and respect. They told me they said Lawrence here. You're Navajo your traditional novel. You go see a medicine man. I will pay for everything and I noticed person. Let's go see him. He'll help so I agreed with it and I said okay so we went and we went to the person and at night he was sitting there with his sons and they were eating with down by him and we told them why we came in and he says let's finish eating first. And how tell you a story so we finish eating and he told me after we ate here? We without around. He told me he says you know. Oh about a week ago. A strange she says about a week ago. It was a man that came from loop loop Perez on. He came to me with the same thing that you were saying. They started crying and he didn't know what what's wrong with him. I do star gazing. I look into the crystal and I sing my song and never has at Lou misled me. I always know what the Great Spirit tells me

Well I always take the bisexual box literally but the small size ends than that isn't the I like. The word Queer is on fire with an lots waves produced Survive Queen just meaning like fucking things off like an assault of of quite like you know doing it wrong for any sort of purposeful goods.

Basically yeah yes. That's what it's called like. Calm Yourself Queer. Because that's what I'm about ways so alike but then when you say queer people like what does she really mean. What's the real sexuality as if it's an umbrella term that means nothing? I don't think that I love it so then you like you're right. Yeah you just want to know. What jets wholesome into his own? Yeah so I mean some yeah. Yeah so all of them all of them and then as problem as advice actual isn't words now. It's the the problem of sexual I mean. A lot of people now are saying Pan Sexual as opposed to vice may be in the past. Marta said bisexual this big shift. Isn't that the problem with bisexual? So people again and a couple of ood might people's on from scam in Wigan listen cone means like he got he got gangrene loving bisexual because of buy into so people like that means that you only like men and women. I'm by taming. You hate transpeople. Or You are an unseen. Non Binary so. That's absolute bollocks. You know historically bisexual people of been translated some advice on use of limited space. It's not like Oh you're bisexual you've got twice. The amount of exceptions gay people hate you straight people here generally people just keep the fucking down which at some yes so historically. It's like being bisexual rights. I don't care about being accepted by any of the group of people Which is true as well of being non binary and Trans and you know occupying all. I'm spices song. Yes was bullshit just because just because the prefix by means ten means that people can really like so fixate on the Ron and going Oh do you know what this represents people and people more complicated than that? By definition you probably would identify as being panned. But you'll just quite happy using by sexual stuff is just like the underdog. I just wanted to defend the word bisexual. Rarely saw stay with it and also I just saw a fought for inside and outside to me. That's because it's you're yourself as well an fought for it for so long about. Just give it all you know so. We'll just fight the case for because there's a lot of sex was out there but the core find not enough people put their head over the parapet and go. Yes me. I'm bisexual. Well exactly. Yeah and especially when you've got a platform if you perform in some sense because you don't know that she giovanna you're gonNA pay the rent Matassa if you like. Oh Yeah Bisexual and the streets you folks on what Stacey Wipe People's so it was sort of come to the conclusion that you were by social what was like my first crush was multiple. Was on tremendously Sasi. Yeah like h three with multiple. I was very very politically correct when it was on the way. Multiple glomma model lovable and Rambo. Rambos Rob Rumba Joe Jr so take like Kinsey. You know it was the people you love some crushing Mongo. I'm moms what you call this. Big Massive St that Intel from the way of Santana big massive tape Zack. Were get so plus plus two. What about the guests that was in there with the group? I was as a Christian Catholic blaster as well. Okay well. This is moving into a whole news. Fair inanimate objects as well well you'll stay. There was just so didn't have any I mean. I think I haven't changed that much since I've lived like quite hard life but in another way quite charmed life because of never rarely socialized. I've never had an office job. I add my parents who great I was never really told off. Fancying ghetto blaster. So we're never stops at quick fair enough check. And you're the first person that's come out. Mister trump's object today like you. I didn't know that you sexually with age child. You wouldn't really so. When was the first time you sort of articulated that and said maybe to your family or someone that union Joran advance and Brooke signs and at been getting the balls up phrases. Well I should suppose that was some some of whom Ananta parents and it didn't say to them moms odds I'm bisexual because it sounds to sexual you know like even just saying the words something sexual Siemens feels embarrassing society as well. He's just embarrassed. The rivalry so aside at the the girl saying I'm not my friends. That's my girlfriends. Go thirteen year. But she wasn't she didn't really like me. That's why USC skips over at nine nine thousand virus so you were having a relationship with not just it was you liked to. I live in a world of delusion. It's like even citizens vets-go angle most the most the reality of this because one year reis from performing you re rice life the narratives in your own life because you use it using the angle. What really happened so at thirteen? There was a girl at school. Presumably that you liked. Did you tell her that you know I was studying like everyone I think is? Is that my sexuality? Always been like a won't the elicit thing on the saying I'm not meant today once a Catholic school. So maybe that's so you're not meant to go out with women but then once so as like very established in the lesbian community. It's like Oh you're allowed to go out with women now. So that's not fun anymore for how Lesbians Hate is shackled men. Let's go to that and then once it was like Oh Giannis just bisexual or okay. So now I'm allowed to Shag out everyone on so where to go. Now so did you. Really get flack from les pins than for food. Let me yeah. Yeah Yeah I was angry. Sort of twenty something. You get more people on the late. I didn't see you face. Those quad knock ECOWAS land. I wasn't this wonderful chairman. Of course you got loads of like bi phobia. I go threatened and stuff life performance pride and do stuff about bisexuality and go like threatens and the Beer Garden say threatens me and you know when you think Oh my God. I'm going to get my kicks usually annoyance and like some people get an annoys for being in Chris Vices or existence in general and then you got like straight people alike. Think just think that it means the Kinky and you WanNa go fronts while I watch so. Why is it so difficult for people to comprehend? I've never really understood. It's just proud. People love binary is learning. People are obsessed with like extremes. The idea that the world's and people are just very gray area and everything's fluid scares the shit our people because humans needs the categorize things like pick a solid any side. Exactly you feel miserable. Yeah it's just don't give a Shit. Choose one very very similar to the football analogy. Yeah it's interesting. I know why phobia exists. I've certainly dated a lot bisexual. Men over the years and a half off lesbian friends. Turn around and go Emma. Why are you bothering? Yeah and the assumption is. They'll never commit to you. Because in the end of the day they will go up and find him on these sump. Shen and then I guess in straight world. The assumption is for men that you're going to go off and leave them for women so you can just want you have kinky sacks. Yeah yeah difficult so you haven't told me yet. The conversation over brookside. What happened to be here for us? So let's go back in time and they were just like okay. It wasn't a difficult kid but I was fucking whimsical. You know thought could fly. It was a more lowest much so they were just like okay okay. I think they saw us. It was a phase but because it was a faizy kid not because they were pricks. And you said you couldn't say reverse bisexual. So how did he phrase it? What did he say? I sat this girl. I such as my girlfriend but then you start talking about what she really Alfred portion on you have to keep coming out so it was. It was years I was being bisexual. I would say it was bisexual swell the people and then Owens University and I was so excited about joining and it was just the algae bay then feel old. I was so excited about being around people and then I got there and it was like Oh okay. You know survival instincts that sends us and you like folk. I should say. Espn so then. There was a lesbian to try. And Fa these people are whenever fest with anyway so it was more of a class thing than a sexual thing but anyway he didn't think that except you. You said that you were born. Not Definitely

Cast get some tickets. Excuse me it's going to be one of those days solo show. Yeah going to be one of those days. What's new all sorts of things? I was supposed to be going to Geneva next week. I had to put actually pull out a couple of weeks ago for a little while ago for for for different reasons but as I sit here. Everybody's wondering what's going to happen because these corona I mean for those who don't know Geneva historically was always one of the the biggest auto shows of the year it was kind of premier one in Europe Attended by all the kind of literati globally as an in neutral Switzerland. Yeah I need supposed to happen. The press days next Tuesday and we're all waiting for messages to listings happening on now. I mean it's A. It's a huge deal about the millions literally tens of millions of hundreds of millions that are spent on this and is it. Is it kind of late in the game to cancel it? Yeah I mean I. I was telling you it's going to happen. It's just going to be kind of flop. I I mean we had. We had Alfred Mayo. His happens from time to time manufacturers. Come in and show ladies. 'cause we have a chat meet we we talk about life and what role doing and I am a global head of. Pr was saying. You know we've been told not to travel. So it's it's a big deal. Yeah I wonder how they do that. Do they try to find local representation? The have a team there that they have like a local. Pr Team A little bit smaller team yet. But I guess I don't know I mean he's going to be an interesting show. How much money and how much he's committed. But also if if people on traveling and I think the other concern is people are worried that you're GONNA get quarantined. So you end up in Geneva. I'm going to keep talking. You end up in Geneva and if you imagine all the the world the company execs from all over the world traveling into Geneva and then just ending up being Maroon there. I read that that later this year. We have twenty twenty Olympics in Tokyo. They're saying hey we. We need a contingency plan. We may cancel the Olympics and they said but they need you know. They need minimum three months. They can probably do two months lead way to to cancel it but they can't do four days like like what you're talking about. They can't do five days. Well also big Formula Warm Fun. I used to working for him in the world in days. Gone by and there's a little conversation about which pre happen which wouldn't yeah it's It's interesting times. We're also seeing in terms of vehicle production as well because a lot of parts is not just 'cause made in China but he's also parts supply parts moving around the world so this there's a big impact going on and what's going to be the effect of cancelling Geneva. Is it really gonNA manner not matter? Everyone's going to release their cars. And they're gonNA send out the press kits and and and try to find some other place two like they're still going to announce the cars digital digitally. I mean I I was invited to a bunch of events down the I was going to sit down with the Mercedes. Co The global CEO on the boss of AM G. And we're GONNA have half an hour with with those guys and that's always great for me because she always learned so much a fascinating fascinating individuals as well to be running something that big. You know things like that obviously won't happen but I know a of things that Mercedes showing off and yet I'll do it digital release. You'll you'll be they'll send the images alison press releases and away you go. I think the tough thing I Geneva and also shows generally. New York's beginning of April. Is these things you know. There's a lot of pressure on these shows. Little people pulling out anyway if it doesn't happen than we'll ever happen again and Gordon is. What happens to the you know the credits into the billions? Almost what's actually spent in in in some things well? In all of these companies so many companies are taking a financial hit already. Everybody asks to prepare for factories being shut down obviously in the automotive space but products all around the world that so much is is manufactured in China and now that that Krona viruses is spreading. Everything in automotive is expensive and global. Yeah so anything. That's hit Soglo on a global level like this is going to be a big deal. Yeah I roll up in the accurate annex. I WANNA say new but it. It got sort of a revision this past year a little bit different ero and I think they did. Some adjustments on the suspension and stuff. Have you driven the sex yet? So this is I drove the original Essex. The you know the sort of iconic mateen nine. I think it was many years ago but the latest wanted always passing by always being doing doing something else when everyone was around so I finally got into it the last couple of days. It's a it's a fascinating thing I kind of. I really wouldn't like it. I really want to love it because I like the idea of buying an accuracy because I think it feels. Yeah it's almost like I'm coming out and skiing I don't need. I don't need a fraud. Whatever I'm going to buy an ACURA sex because I know what I like. I don't need to everything else so I rely. I like similar technology but I kind of feel it's almost too clever by half in that Scott the three and a half six two but then on top of that these three electric motors. And there's a lot of really clever tech going on but what actually delivers is is questionable and increasing the. I'm unless no less of a fan of potato well. This isn't the plug in or hybrids. Generally I think these days you you either go all in on the electric light the ticon all stick with a stick with a gas engine light the new cove at something and its own to me. It feels like that choice now and carrying around all this complexity and all this weight and everything else for hybrid just just almost feels like old tech even though it's cutting edge on one level
Schools are tracking kids and that raises all kinds of questions
"These ten schools across the US have ruled out a system that tracks and potentially survey students using the signals from their phones. Albert. How does this work all right so you ever been to a mall and and you know they? All's no no okay so you've never been no more so there are things called radio frequency scanners that pick up signals on your phones that are things like your Bluetooth Signal. Your WIFI signal Some in some cases like your cell frequency signal and it uses that as a location tracker instead right so so the idea that these phones are constantly paying the network for connection it's at Ping they're tracking using to locate you. So they're going to do that. And say like okay. There's a phone here. There's a phone here or not. Must these phones have some somehow gained sentence and are walking on their own? They're most likely attached with the person so they're using that to Tr they use that to track people in malls to say like Oh. There's this many people at this store today You know we know. Like how traffic does that's kind of. What like marketers. Use that shirt right. They also use US imprisons to basically detect any kind of contraband. Because you know. Inmates aren't allowed to have cell phones or anything like that right so they are now bringing this into schools where they're using that to track students throughout the day And it's not just their phones right like if it has any kind of signal so like your kid has like a new pair of air pods or anything like that. That's being tracked and you know. Obviously there are some kids that are too young to have phones right. Those company in fiction decides. Hey we are going to introduce a respond trackers for them where basically kind of works like a fitbit where they use that to also track like their staffs and their calorie counts and their heartbeat which This is pitched as something to you know. Be a school safety thing I think. That's why law schools might be inclined to look at this right the idea that the promise here that it's supposed to be a safety issue it's supposed to prevent school shootings but we talked about this. You've talked about this before. Like that's not necessarily the case right. No absolutely not. I mean so the way that it's supposed to work as a school safety tools to say you know they have kids like phone registered already so if a new device comes on campus and is like. Hey we don't know who's phone is what's going on here. They sent a security guard to go. Check it out The problem with an idea like that is you know kids got new devices all the time. And it's not like what are they gonNa do headphones that are not registered. Then then it becomes like sending a security guard every day for something like that also. I mean for a lot of school shootings. They're often they're done by students. Who would be registered and actually be flagged? Yeah exactly so I mean that's the problem. A lot of the technology Being proposed a school shooting prevention. Where there's absolutely no proof that this technology works. But I've obviously said Oh I get that it's a very specious argument preventing school shootings but In terms of preventing I guess unwanted people strangers like adults to mean to do Har- like this is some would actually trigger like the would alert security that like these I mean. Yeah but why would you okay? So try convincing a school board to spend one point four million dollars on something like this to prevent just a guy that you don't want on campus like an annoying person or or try convince Sam saying you can use one point. Four million dollars to stop shooting stopped shootings. They use that logic a lot because like fear is what sells so I mean. That's a really good point. Our schools really doing this. Are they using the school shooting? As as the the impetus to actually get the money and the but the rarely actually use it to track. I don't see schools making this pitch that much so much as I see these companies making this pitch to get schools to spend money on them and I think the onus is really on them right to prove that this technology works because like ultimately schools are spending this money. And and you know I don't know how well funded. The school districts are in your area but across the country really is like there kind of starved for resources and you could be using that money to pay teachers more. You could be using that money to pay for more guidance counselors or after school programs that would you know actually help out the kids at rather than the security systems that you know might be helpful one day but like the rest of the time is there is fascinating debate because I look I'm not. I have two kids. I'm not averse to Putting trackers on my kids frankly which I know you think is is You know a privacy issue but the key difference here between what this is. What I'm thinking about is like this'll be a tracker that I would put on that. I would have control over right. That would be. You can sell that data on your kids exactly exactly Google wanted. I'll give me enough money. I'll do it but the fact that it's a school doing it and it's only limited. The school is it's an opt out programme. You have to tell them. Please don't track my kids. Also parents who opt out doesn't make the system kind of the relevant While not only that. But it's also like even if you opt out you're still being tracked in away right like if if I'm not in school one day because I opted out of being in class and they have the tendency and they say oh. Alfred wasn't here. I mean like they have that data still omission of data is still like data that's collected. That is their point But yeah it's IT'S A it's a fascinating thing because I think there is a line like parents you know from our perspective. It's we are definitely willing to bend privacy rules. Yeah comes to keep our kids safe right. That's all priorities so but how it's done is the execution is really the key and like. I don't know like I said I mean like the school handle. It is the best thing I think. A lot of it comes down to like a heat of the moment kind of thing where it's like if there's a fire in the building like you wouldn't care about like privacy issues like I. The question is like how often is a building on fire and like. Would you want to have your privacy? Invaded the rest of the time. So that it would save you in that situation. It's an interesting to bake with school shootings in the frequency of school shootings and we can take off the table. The fact that maybe this thing doesn't even isn't but in terms of the argument like if you made the argument that this prevents one school shooting. I think for most parents that would be enough. I mean obviously once that's harder than yeah and I think that's why the argument is so compelling even though it may not be as effective as these companies claim. I mean. Yeah that's the idea right. They say you know you're trading off your privacy for safety but if you're not actually getting the safety that they're promising are you actually creating anything off right
Hellboy talk with Tim
"Are seeing more of change. I think in response to books like Hell Boyer Black Hammer. Where because there is a firm time line and things are happening characters have to react to the things that are happening even if they don't have full context for what's happening so that's what you like about hell boy be. Pr General. Think helpful like you said Houston's Gone Yeah Houston's gone what are you GonNa do hell boy died? What are we going to do? And that's another thing stopped me please. If I'm going off the rails in the world of hell boy. Bpd WHAT HAVE YOU? Death is final unless it isn't and what I mean by that is when like okay but speculate for just a second over. I'm going to spoil recent events in Batman that's okay. I'll put spoiler at the beginning. The Alfred was killed by Bain in Batman a couple months ago Alfred. Dying is a huge deal. It's a very good story. I'll be really hard pressed to say in five years. We're not going to have comics with Alfred. M I think we'll see Alfred Comeback in the hell boy world if there was a a character analogous to Alfred. If he died he'd be dead. There's only been three characters I can think of who haven't stayed dead One of them is Huma Hunky list which is hard work as say I can read it forever. A monkey lists named Roger. Who's liveability is questionable? At best the other two and I could be wrong as well like I'm not concrete giving you information but This based off the best of my recollection the the other two characters would be Rasputin. Who is the main villain and Hell boy himself and when hell boy is brought back it's not his choice. There was There was a thing that I want to say. Scott Allie who was an editor and a writer on BP said is If he said death is final and things will break and if things are repaired they will still remain broken. So if you like break glass table you can put that glass table back together. It's not going to be as strong as it was. And that's kind of a tenant and B P R D if we're gonNA break it we can put it back together but it's not gonna be the same as a storyteller in a fan of of character the way hell boy and it's related books handle stakes is so it's so unlike anything else you're gonNA find in modern pop culture and he loves. Mike loves the supernatural world. Because I hadn't read hell boy before but I read Joe Gholam which is one of my aches works and it has a very supernatural tinder taste to it for lack of a better word but he really loves that supernatural world when I was reading up about how he came up with hell boy and the Supernatural. In general he started. Reading Brahms stroker's Dracula and just got sucked into the all. The supernatural world and missed. Go along with that and even see that. In Gotham by gaslight. Yeah I think that's where he got a lot of this inspiration because like you said. Eprdf just kind of a supernatural monster story arc on each in how he tries to solve this mystery so to speak. But I really like those like you said the BP because they're short. In general. At least the ones I read are fairly short. They're kind of wins a call because they take place in the past share. Well it's it's interesting because Mike men ULA has trusted so many people with his world. Geoff Johns has written for PR. D- we've got Chris. Roberson does a lot of stuff Scott. Allie Gabriel Bah and Fabio Moon. Who ARE TWINS? They've done some work on a book called. B P R D vampire. Let's just phenomenal. It's so good Abe Sapien had his own series for awhile and there were another set of twins that were working on the art in that and their names escape me off hand but pitch perfect. They're wonderful the those twin they're now working on Lucifer for DC like the the Black Label Sandman books but It's just so good There's a horror comic called Herro county that's written by. Cullen Bunn the art and that is done by Tyler Crook and there was a tiny little bit of animosity because Tyler Crook was the second main artists on E. P. R. D. And when he went over to do Harrow County kind of left He left the crew in a bit of a bind and everybody was a little upset but also he's doing the work of his career on. Harrow. County That's how we got Lawrence Campbell as the main artist on be prd through throughout the run of like hell boy traditionally the art in that is either Mike Minneola or Mike. Minneola esque yes. There's a there's a very good so pretty still pretty rough so to speak but it I think it fits in his universe. Yeah it absolutely does. If we're not getting Mike Manolo. We're getting somebody like Dunkin for Griego who has a very manolas style over. Mvp what we got was a completely different visual. Take and we had guy. Davis was the main artist for play frogs. Hell on earth. We saw Tyler Crook and then going into the devil you know we had Lawrence Campbell. And they bright. They brought a very interesting like real world. Visual take on what Mike Minneola drew as more than esoteric stylized monster world and just like injected it with like this fierce ground level realistic take in it so to to see how Lake Dunkin for draws Abe sapien versus how Mike Minneola draws EP and versus. How Tyler Crook Draws Abe sapien versus? It's so it should not narrative Lee speaking work. It shouldn't do it Michael did a whole issue of of that. We have a painted issues that are done by just masters of their art. And it's it's so wonderful and and just the fact that you can have these visual styles who divorced from divorce from the words divorce from the writing you would never know that just because this character looks a little more cheesy in. This character. Looks a little more realistic. There is no. There's no what if in the hell boy universe whenever you read a story As far as the comics the short stories are a little different. There's pros and all that but we're talking about the comics there's not Lak- what if Abe Sapien was fighting in World War. Two like it's there's none of that every everything you read actually happens To those characters in the world of hell boy and having such unique creative voices all working in tandem to tell this one epic it should not by any right work and if it does work it should not work nearly as well as this does and it is so much fun it does. It's a fun a fun book. Speaking of you talked about Abe Sapien. What is your favorite character from hell boy? Do you bomb or is it a cop out answer cop out answer and then maybe might cop out. Answer is Every every major comic book company I believe has a trinity of some kind so. Dc Has Batman. Wonder Woman Superman Marvel's got Captain America. Thor and iron man You could argue. That image has spawned in which blade and someone else that I can't think of offhand For Hell boy it's definitely you've got an expansive universe of characters but it comes down to Abe Liz in hell boy and if I get one of those three I'm going to have a good time and be in for completely different reasons there so three very different characters In the in the Gemmell del Toro movies. They had a romance between. Liz and hell boy does not exist in the comics. That's not a thing If anything Liz and Abe kind of have an unspoken thing that nobody ever acts on and that's kind of cool because you've got fire and water and that's like a neat neat thing like that. Yeah it's really fun. But if you were like gun to my head me pick a character man. It's GonNa be a tie between it's GonNa be a tie between Captain Daimyo from be PRD. Who is in the newest? Hell boy movie. He's the the wear Jaguar. I love him or Johann Johann Krauss whose an echo plasma ghost in a in a sealed suit don't make can't choose between those two a close honorable mention would be roger but I can live without roger it's fine but But no I love and that goes to the military guy in me I love. Diageo is a traditional military guy and he is just he's hired basically to militarize the PRD and get them to work as a cohesive unit and he just comes in and he's like all right. Look I'm done I'm done like I cannot handle. Whatever it is you guys are doing. I need you all. Just cut your drama. And let's do this. And he just has no time for any of the. He's he's not ignorant to the fact that he's working with monsters he's he gets to the point where he's like. I don't care that you're monsters. We have work to do. And I absolutely love that. And then Johann who was voiced by Seth McFarland and the second held boy movie the The Golden Army In the comics he is so flawed that he is. He's the most fun to read. Because you you just like him you just like him and he makes some really dumb stupid mistakes but they're mistakes that you could see yourself making and you see some emphasis me speaking of myself when I say you but I see so much of myself in him that when he makes a mistake. I'm like own own. No real world content is one hundred percent what I would do and we would all be in so much trouble So I absolutely adore the dichotomy of those two and they don't get a wall but No it's my it's A. It's a complete cop-out I answered it twice with no actual answer. That's okay. I like the fact that like you said it is kind of whimsical. Boys Got A. Would you say it dry sense of humor? I would say Ri- I think is is not so much dry it's like. He knows he knows what he's just so he's just kind of he's perpetually forty and he could you imagine being being against. I'm in my late thirties. Man If you just I would be unstoppable if I had energy and I see hell boy as just perpetually old enough to know better young enough to not care and he kind of can get away with
Robbie Robertson remembers
"We're going to start today with singer and Songwriter Robbie Robertson the story of his legendary group. The band is told in a new documentary. It's called once we're brothers. Here's a cut from the trailer. There's any American musicians dour comparable to what the Beatles were when they came together. Something miraculous occurred. We wanted to create something. You have nothing to compare the film features interviews with Bruce Springsteen and Eric Clapton as well as archival footage from the band's history you even get a peek of their iconic pink house in upstate New York where they made a lot of music last fall. When Robertson released a new album I went to see him as West L. A. Studio and we were surrounded by a dozen guitars hanging on the walls. I WANNA play bid of a song. Beautiful Madness
Don't Make the Problem Fit the Model
"One of the most critical and fundamental skills any developer must cultivate is the ability to map. Mapping is the concept of taking some information and relating it to some other information the seems overly simplified but if we apply this to actual maps we can see the direct correlation for example when we take a picture with a satellite. We have pixels and we can map those pixels to actual latitude and longitude points in our physical world. What's interesting is that? Latitude and longitude is in of itself. A mapping exercise in so it stands to reason that we can stack maps on top of each other. We can add new information using old maps. That's exactly what we're doing when we're creating routes on these existing maps were taking the many different layers and compressing them together. Creating multiple maps that are abstracted from underlying maps. In fact almost all of the information that we operate on a day-to-day basis relies. Some kind of mapping but it stands to reason that as with most things that humans try to do very often. We get our mapping wrong in today's episode. We're going to talk about how forcing a concept into the wrong model can cause major problems in software and your career as a whole my name. Is Jonathan. Cottrell you're listening to develop my goal on. This show is to help. Drew Developers like you find clarity perspective and purpose in their careers as with all models. A model is not a pure picture of the truth. Alfred Decor Ziblonki. I said that a map is not the territory it represents but if it's correct it has a similar structure to the territory which accounts for its usefulness once again if we think about actual maps that we use the Google maps for example satellite imagery on Google. Maps often is out of date. In fact it's always out of date to some degree therefore it cannot ever be exactly the territory however models are useful just because a maps satellite imagery is not perfectly up-to-date. Doesn't mean that those images don't represent some picture of today's current reality in most cases. Those images are up to date enough to be useful and it's important to recognize as with so many topics on this show the necessity of context. In what way can a map be useful? In what way can a model be useful? We talked about models in the last episode of develop not specifically. We talked about the idea of having implicit and explicit models that inform our various processes. And it's important to think about your models but it's also necessary to think about how models can steer US wrong models can and often do give us a false sense of confidence. It's not just because we picked the wrong model to represent a particular idea. We shouldn't always blame the
Making voting machines safer from hackers
"What exactly is Homo Morphou conscription? And what's wrong with good old fashioned paper and pen ballots? All right first and foremost thanks. Everybody Hope Y'all had a nice weekend. We're glad to be back after a little Monday American holiday President's Day break And it's also great to have Roger Bag. Hey thanks how was dad? The sequel daddy was it was good. It was taxing. It's someone asked me like how was my vacation. I'm like definitely wasn't that a vacation. Not a vacation at all so I'm very happy to be back good to have you back. We definitely need your expertise. We got some good questions and comments. Alfred the way you phrased it. You have to account for human error. I was Kinda curious and how that perspective shifts in the this system prevent human tampering. Well yeah that's that's the whole point like it's supposed to okay okay. Actually it doesn't prevent it can't let it can't prevent tampering. It basically makes it so that if you do like hack a vote. It's very obvious right. If the person checks yes voter check. Yeah I mean like the voter. The election board can also check themselves. That's okay because it's all open source. Once all the votes are supposed closed. Anyone can download all the votes all the encrypted votes and check it to see if it matches up with what's being reported out there Gotcha. Yeah like disinformation like happens very frequently with stuff like that. Where if I were an attacker I I would say I would pretend to say like. Oh I downloaded the votes. Here's what they are and look like this person like one even and it's just it's if that's the loudest voice on social media. Everyone will believe that even if it's not necessarily true yeah Just because I've seen disinformation campaigns and that seems to be the ongoing trend so it does not prevent tampering but it prevents very effective tools to catch it and try to stop like disinformation campaigns. Which is a very difficult task On that no. If we're going to continue dumbing things down so that I can understand them homo more. Fic- what is it more? You started to explain that you did a good job. I'm still stupid. What what the Layman's terms for. What IS HOMO MORPHING? Mean when it comes to the elections. It's like a math thing. I was speaking with Josh Bonilla hit this Microsoft's like senior cryptographer Microsoft Research Department And he gave a very good quote for it. That I'm looking up right now and this is this is basically the the easiest way to explain it? it's it's sort of structured gibberish. Like you can't tell what it is. It's like one it's encrypted at his gibberish but it keeps enough structure to it that you can actually work with the gibberish rather than like making it not gibberish. I don't know if that's the easier way to explain it. But I mean the system recognizes the GIBBERISH. Yeah and can manip- manipulate on top of it. That's the basic part right there. It's Gibberish to the point where the system won't be able to identify the person who put that down in right. Yeah only what the what the value the vote is suppose yes casted or like who they cast it for got it. Yeah it's just an interesting thought to try to grasp because historically there was some form of algorithm or some way to crack a direct translation by the sounds of this that takes that completely out of the equation if its pseudo randomize that kind of how the away to visualize encryption is light and decrypt. Something is imagine you put like a banana in a blender at announce all mush right. That's being encrypted and decrypted. It would be somehow returning it back to regular state of being a banana. Which physically is impossible but like encode like that's kind of what it does Very basic understanding of it. It's and there's a lot of ways that like that analogy is wrong but for the average person. That's Kinda how I describe it like. Obviously you can't get banana back from that but like decryption would do something like that sure and the idea being annoymous encryption for a vote. You can't do that right like you can't decrypt it because then you know like this person voted for this person and that you're not allowed to do that so home. Amorphous would basically like. Oh we don't need to turn it back into the normal banana. We can use this mush than at each other and say oh. They're like if you just see the most you don't know it's a banana right but home amorphous encryption would basically. Oh there's ten bananas here like they can tell from parts of it. That like what? It was originally a really bizarre effective way to explain. That was actually pretty good. Timothy says I'm all for new technology but voting needs to stay old school paper and pen or is that just me. Matthew Dacha says I love the potential voting technology but if it can't be explained to lay people it'll never get traction paper for the win. How do you guys feel as registered voters are? We excited to see. Just personally go ahead and editorialize are excited to see this technology. Come to play Do we think is actually going to be helpful in our experience and going to the polls and engaging with modern politics or it's kind of like blown smoke I mean. Yeah that's that's a big problem with election guard. Is that you know I spoke with another cryptographer. Who who had mentioned to me like there's only about three thousand people on the planet that like fully understand home working corruption and with election counties and like with Voting Technology. The idea in the. Us is that like you have to be able to properly explain this to everyone working on it because part of like of election and part of democracy is not only like counting like who won but being able to show a paper trail for it to show the person who lost so they can like openly. Admit like yes. I lost this election when you have something this complicated. It raises up some issues of like while. I don't know how this encryption works. How do I know that I lost this? Vote is a sham. The Outer Yada Yada so like adding more. Technology will always like create Complications again not because of the technology itself. Sometimes more so like people don't understand it except the vote for what? It is the lack of transparency. At the thing of it is I. Think to your point that it's simple say just. Let's go back to paper ballots but there are a lot of places that don't use ballot or prefer to use voting machines and that sort of the reality that we with a work with that reality. It'd be great if we all just went back to paper ballots. But that's not where we're at. Also the accessibility issue to like. Microsoft was bringing this up like if you notice in one of the photos. They were using the xbox adaptive controller. Oh yeah right and then like you know just using the touchscreen part of that being like well you know there are people that might not be able to use a pen pencil. That and this is kind of a way for them to do that. So that that is also like one of the reasons why voting machines may be used more than like pen pen and paper gotcha. Adaptive Controller continues to be one of my favorite stories of the last several years. Good things just keep coming from it in a world with crabby news Okay we got a few minutes left. Let's take one from Brian. He says Not How to phrase this many attempts to digitize voting stress paper backups? If we become confident in the system because of the backup how do we stop them from becoming complacent? We're going deep on that one so in this situation with Microsoft. They're not saying. The papers are the backups. A paper the electronic system is the backup like they're still using paper as the main way to vote and then they're using the electronic systems verify that and actually at this practice relic. This system actually requires that voters not be complacent. They actually go and actively check. Yeah the verified cop or their their their second copy so like you can't be complacent or else assistant breakdown. Yeah and the other thing is in Wisconsin. They have a law that like the poll workers have to initial every vote. Cast in the ballot. So what they're doing at this election today is that they are When they initially they're also going to ask the people like did you check your vote to make sure everything's like right So and they the same study that was talking about. We're only six percent will had only like actually check their votes. If something was wrong and reported they did a counter. Study on it or like the control for it where it was basically. Let's see how many people report if we tell them like? You need to check this and it was like eighty percent so it does go up when okay. They're told like you need to. You need to do this. Gotcha now will that happen in every election across the country definitely. Not because the way that. Us elections work is that it's up to every single county to decide how to it and there's no standard for security or technology Guidelines that we go before moving forward shouted to my mom who's watching the show after coming in from shoveling the driveway hello commodities SCHRAMM. What's your son's amazing. You did a great job. Thanks guys all right. Next question is coming in from commander trim up in the great white north are. They're not encryption technologies that don't rely on particular identity cannot these be coupled with tracking vote has been cast by an individual on vote acceptance separately. There are but you can't count on. You can't do math on those I that's like that's the whole point of home. Amorphous encryption is that you can encrypt vote. All you want. But like if you can't count the vote which encryption like makes it difficult to count like it's you can't do anything with it That's why they needed this like this other concept rather than just encrypting itself because they would have to be decrypted for them to count the voter right. That would be. Ucs unless he's talking about like the chain of command stuff where it's like encrypting like Oh. This vote was counted. That kind of stuff but I mean home amorphous encryption. Kinda already does that and then is still able to count the vote after this is dense stuff out. Thanks for making time to explain this because I think this is extremely helpful We got a couple of really really good questions coming up next from our old timothy on Youtube does the federal or state set the standards for encryption Well no one sets the standard for encryption The state though like sets the standards for Election like technology guidelines so. This is a problem that Microsoft has encountered for awhile. To where like there's there's the election assistance commission where that start around two thousand two and they like set guideline and that's federal and they set guidelines for like what you should do for security on your machines that kind of stuff but the thing is that those are just guidelines not requirements. There are no federal requirements for election security. So it's up to the county and they do that because it's like every county has different needs right if one county if there's a federal guideline that says you need to spend at least you need to buy these machines only these machines then like a county. That doesn't have that much money like they're just not gonna be able to vote millions different for every like area So like counties like set their own guidelines for this kind of stuff but like I said it's extremely different and there are no There's no like standard of encryption per se but there are there they do have security standards but it might be different from like one to the other and sometimes those standards will go against their own technology so like I said some counties only only some counties adhere to the Election Assistance Commission And some others don't but the their guidelines like even if you do something as simple as like updating the security on it like getting a security patch like you don't get a new machine you don't like whatever you just updated so you're not vulnerable to an attack you have to get the entire machine recertified again which takes awhile. Which does that. That's an interesting point like would incorporating this election guard system into your your overall only system if you have machines with that require. Yeah that's the other. That's the other is a lot of red tape for that. Yeah Yeah Okay.
"alfred" Discussed on Stuff You Missed in History Class
"The PODCAST. I'm Tracy Wilson and I'm holly. I really love historical disputes. Especially especially when it's some kind of scientific or technical discovery or advancement or some kind of medical something that people were arguing over like when I've been trying to the figure out what to talk about next. Nothing on my list is really grabbing me at the moment. Sometimes they'll be googling lake scientific disputes in history. This is one that I've been hanging onto for a while and it's Alfred Wegener and the dispute over his theory of continental drift. And I really expected this episode to sound a lot. Like our previous one on ignites semel vice and handwashing except geology. Because that's how the story gets told a lot of the time especially to general audience. kind of gets summed up as Alfred Wagner introduced his theory of continental drift and and was basically laughed out of the academy and then after his tragic and untimely death he he was proved to be more or less right and for a discovery that was As important to the field of geology as the discovery of DNA is to biology but that is really not how the story goes at all. Alfred Wagner had a huge career outside of his ideas around what we understand today as plate. tectonics he did important and respected work that touched on a lot of different disciplines. There were definitely people who were very critical and even hostile when it came to what he called continental drift he did have his supporters. Orders are at least people who are like willing to entertain the idea that he could potentially be right. Alfred was born Alfred. Lothar Wagner on November first eighteen eighty in Berlin Germany. His parents were Richard in Vegas and they had five children. Three of whom survived infancy. Alfred was the youngest his older brother and sister who survived were named Kurt. Antoni the men in the Vega family typically went into the clergy and that was also. They're true for Alfred's father. He was at the Lojane and a classicist and a pastor and an orphanage director he also taught at the local gymnasium but it was against the rules for Kurt and Alfred to attend the same school where he was working because he was their father so they attended a different school and both wound up pursuing an education and science science rather than following that family tradition into the church. Kurt studied geophysics and Alfred studied at universities in Heidelberg Innsbruck and Berlin before getting eating a doctorate in astronomy in nineteen o five even before finishing that doctorate veganism interests. Went outside of what you might think of. When we say astronomy he had studied Max? Planks Work Thermo Chemistry and thermodynamics. And some of the people. He studied under four his doctorate. We're using planetary astronomy. As a way to study the earth Earth rather than focusing on other planetary objects he was also interested in weather and meteorology and after finishing his degree he started working at the German. Aeronautical Nautical Observatory in Lindenberg. His brother worked there as well and they used kites and balloons to study the Earth's atmosphere and atmospheric phenomena at one point during this work the Vega brothers spent fifty two hours aloft in a balloon which set a world record. Alfred Wagner was also also part of the team that confirmed the existence of the stratosphere wasn't a team he was running but he was involved in it had been interested in greenland since he was young and in nineteen eighteen o six. He got the opportunity to go there as part of the Danish. danmark expedition which intended to map. Greenland's Northeast Coast Vegas was the expedition's physicist physicist and meteorologist and his research involved more work with kites and balloons to collect atmospheric data using a lot of practical experience in polar exploration. Jim this expedition made its way through extremely inhospitable territory. So Vegas learned things like Arctic survival skills and how to handle a team of sled dogs On July tenth of nineteen seven while they were on Cape Bismarck Wagner and the team observed several waterspouts. They took a lot of pictures documented. What they saw and this experience may have inspired interest in tornadoes and waterspouts which will come up again later in his career? Vegas kept journals during us. Expedition documenting his experiments and their results as well as the ordinary work that was associated with it like setting up the equipment and keeping it maintained and repaired and he also wrote about his own challenges as a member of the team he had no experience in polar environments before this and his knowledge of Danish was limited unlike many of the other scientists involved he was also very early in his career and he hadn't really established a name for himself yet. This expedition achieved its objectives of mapping the northeast coast of Greenland but it was also tragic several of its primary members including leader Ludvig. Majlis Erikson died after being being stranded when the ice broke up around them even so before it was even over Wagner was talking about where he might go in the future even considering an expedition expedition to Antarctica as future project for himself in one thousand nine hundred eight after he returned from Greenland Vega moved to Marburg where he started working at the physical institute to toot in Marburg in nineteen. Oh nine he also lectured on meteorology and astronomy at the university. There and Vega became particularly interested in atmospheric discontinuities Thanou it-it's which are sudden sharp changes in temperature or pressure. For example there are discontinuity services around the boundaries of weather fronts and at the borders of atmospheric layers. Vagner wrote prolifically over the next three years publishing. More than forty scientific papers and then editing. The ones on the subject into a book called thermodynamics of the atmosphere. This was a widely respected in reference text on atmospheric thermodynamics for years until it was ultimately committee replaced by a later book on the subject of that begging her also wrote in nineteen. Ten colleagues brought an atlas into their office. That was Richard Andres alumini on my neon dot Lewis. This is one of the first atlases in Germany that included both the coastlines of South America and Africa and the bathymetric data or information about the ocean's depths that had been gathered by the expedition aboard the HMS Challenger in the late nineteenth century so vague or noticed something in this combination of data. That intrigued him. He noticed that the eastern coast of South America looked like it would fit exactly against the western coast of Africa and this wasn't just that the coastline at at sea level. It was also part of the underwater topography off of the visible coast. He wrote a letter to open daughter of climatologist Vladimir Coppin Vladimir Coppin had advised advised Vegas in advance of the mark expedition and Alfred and had started corresponding vaguely. wrote quote. Doesn't the east coast of South America. Fit exactly exactly against the west coast of Africa as if they had once been joined. This is an idea I'll have to pursue. He didn't pursue it right away there. It seems to have slipped his mind until about a year later when he read a newly published paper on Paleo geography that documented fossils that had been found on both sides of the Atlantic Alantic that combined with earlier study of that Atlas to put him on the path of formulating a theory of continental drift. And we'll get to that after sponsor break this episode of stuffiness. History class is brought to you by Peleton this holiday season you can give your loved one. Something they really we want with the gift of Peleton. Now I know that might be a little intimidating. You're going to give somebody a piece of exercise equipment. What if they don't like it? Peleton has a new thirty day home trial so they can try the bike. Worry free for thirty days and then if they decide it is not for them they can return it for a full refund. Pelivan will even come pick it up at no cost cost. Plus it is a gift. People will keep on using with a huge variety of entertaining and on-demand classes. This honestly is my favorite thing about this bike. It is so easy for me to walk away from doing any kind of cardio for any possible..
"alfred" Discussed on Mac Power Users
"Honestly i'll just tell the truth here when and i was in my week and a half of launch bar testing as an alfred user i didn't come across its actions directory for the first several days. I was like i can't do workforce off and then i did some googling and realize that oh it can alfred. I think there's a better job at if you're you're an alfred settings showing all that stuff giving you actions and and workflows and all the things that can do snippets which we haven't really touched on yet. It makes all that much more easily discoverable than launch as bar. I feel like some of that stuff sort of hidden away yeah. If you're using one of these are going to try one of these as a result of this episode one of the tricks six is you activate the app command or control space whatever triggers and then command comma to open the preferences because because aziz apps are just a text box. Sometimes it's hard to figure out how to get to the preferences but command commerce gets you in and take a good look of the preferences for both of them because there's a ton of customization customisation and they're like one of the things i do is they. They both have a search index. You know what are they searching. I go in and tweak that so it just searches the places i want to i add if you take a few away and and you want to get in there and kind of make it work for you better and that's where you turn on things like search documents folders as well as you know things like that. It's all stashed away in there to definitely take some time. Exploring <hes> what's in the settings. What's it's in these these forms and stuff online because these apps are really in a way pallets to become whenever you need them to be. I think if you sat down five alfred users i five launch party users the way they had it set up the way they would be using it would be different and part of that is these apps learn over time what you want. The part of it is this extensive angle where you can bolt on things to their core functionality as you need them and it makes them really sticky. I like alfred this episode. It was very interesting and i'm glad that i explore launch bar because i haven't looked at it in years but i'm not going to change because alfred is so ingrained in the way that i work yeah yeah. No i get it and like at one point you had texted me and i knew exactly what was making crazy was delay because if you start typing and you stop to think about it and the delay the trigger hits then you continue typing dot continue typing starting over again and i know that the something for a lot of people that just just turn off once you figure it out it's okay but it is a different way. It's that input is a huge difference between the two yeah. You're going to think that two apps apps that are just text boxes can be so different but <hes> but they can be. I wanna round out talking about a couple of features. We haven't touched on yet. One is snippets. There are a text expanded vendor like features in alford and again. It is tied to the third party deal so you can load in snippet libraries. Yes i don't really use this because expand has been part of my mac setup way longer than alfred has by but it is here so if you're looking to have an app that does sort of <hes> lots of things for you. Alfred can take over those responsibilities and like i said there are third party libraries. You can install and have a <hes> custom snippets of things i've seen <hes> like <hes> an emoji replacement deal so you can you can type in emoji and it will put the emoji on your pace board mac symbols. If you find yourself typing a command like keyboard shortcuts like if.

"Launch bar and you re size it has built in features church to re size images. I can say re size fifty resized thirty three and it'll recite the image right from launch bar. It's like in a lot of ways launched part has pre installed old many of the things that people are creating custom workflows for alfred <hes> but there is something to be said i i'm on both sides of the pants on this because when you create customers you can make them custom. You can make them fit. You like i did with that folder search but i also found some of the alfred stuff. I've been downloading. Just doesn't work they for what changes in the application one of them didn't have the necessary python library installed. It's like you know suddenly when you start installing things from third parties. It's just a little more hectic in terms of does it actually work or not. Yeah i think that's fair and there's definitely some experimentation again. We might be in a weird spot right now. Because it was just it was just updated but it is something to do do that. Even if something doesn't work kinda like with keyboard meister like with your examples in your field guide you can see how it's built and then kind of figure it out like how to adapt it on your own that might not work if it if it re realizing some sort of system integration that doesn't work in your version of mac o._s. But if it's a web search you can kind of figure it out so for instance the ones that i've built. I found an example then. I sort of plugged in my own you who else that i wanted and figured out how to make it work so it's it's a nice way to learn simple <hes> simple. It's not it made us programming to a degree but simple workflow creation to <hes> build something that you know that custom to what you need not something that someone on the internet wanted for themselves yeah i i keep talking about keyword maestro because it does kind of come into play with these discussions. Both of them have actions or workflows flows. <hes> the the alfred one is from a third party and i will. I'll put a lincoln. They shut us but you can download integrations with keyboard maestro where you just type k._m. K._m. and then you can type the name of your script and runs which is awesome. You know i don't know that i really like this is a new turn for both of these apps the idea the <hes> adding additional power through third parties and i really like it and and honestly like i said i think alfred kind of pulls ahead in this regard it because of the user out much easier it is for a user to customise <hes>. I'm really i mean it scillies. It sounds a problem i had was i want to just search my client folders you know and with launch bar traditionally i would type of client name i if i had been in the folder before would always service because that's usually where i go but with keyboard maestro. I'm sorry with alfred. I'm sorry anyway with with alfred you by creating that custom search you know requires me to type in additional two letters blah blah but it gets me so much closer to my implant than that's that's really a benefit fit and the way they're built in alfred is not dissimilar from keyboard my shirt or a other automation tools you have triggers like hot keys or snippets you have an input you've actions and then you have utilities and outputs and so we're talking really in the connex search but you can have workflows that reach out to the web. If you have somebody that has an a._p._i. Because you can you can execute scripts within this. I've got one when i was using remember the milk. I know that i didn't say i know that <hes> you remember. The milk has a an a._p._i. That uses ruby and so. I have a disabled abled workflow into my alfred library that let let me basically input something to remember the milk via a._p._i. Via ruby script and so if you want to go deeper just like you can text expand or or keyboard maestro or any of these other.

"Is whether it's plain text or rich tax you can do more with the keyboard maestro clipboard manager so i- longtime ago. I realize no for clipboard steph. I'm gonna just use keyboard contro- but but they do have one and it's cool and i used to use it until i found the light with keyboard maestro but it's been years since i used it a fair enough. I do use keyboard or clipboard history. I do use it in alfred again. It's behind a keyword sort of c._b. For clipboard and you hit enter and then it gives you in the end the u._i. Basically have mindset to the last twenty things thanks and i have mindset to be accessible via plain text images and violence. You could say don't include images in the clipboard history. Basically you select when the when you want and you hit enter an and that is on your clipboard replacing. What's there now so it's not a multi clipboard. Deal is not having a clipboard for this clipboard for that a single clipboard and rotates things in and out. I use this all the time time it very often compiling show notes i've links or text and various places and i can copy them all and then go back into the clipboard history and paste them and alfred has the thing that is really nice. It's a check box that says ignore data from other apple devices so if you have i cloud signed in has the universal clipboards clipboard. If you copy something on your phone and pasted on your mac you can turn that on or off based on your preference with <hes> with alfred and so if i i copy something on my iphone and ends up on the clipboard of my mac then that's gets added history and you can disable that if you want and you can also clear your clipboard history he says that you you pasted someone's social security number or credit card number and you wanna clear that you can use the clear keyword and it gives you options declared history from the last five minutes or the last fifteen minutes and kind of go about scrubbing your keep your report history that way so it is something that i use all the time and i do use it through alford yeah they. They have a cool feature on the clipboard launch bar. I think they have it on alfred tour. You can get a workflow for it. It's called clip merge whereas you clip things that combines them softened like you're taking a bunch of pieces of text and you want them to spit out his one piece of text you can do that. I have not found much use for that. A couple times. I accidentally triggered it ended that was hilarious because then i'd paste and get a bunch more than i expected expected. I think there's some people for which that's a that's a cool feature. I it's just not for me and they're even whole like minibar apps on the mac that are just clipboard history and is not baked into something bigger so a lot of ways to do this and you can find the way that works for you but i know for me. Clipboard history has become like just ingrained in the way that i work and i really rely on it several times a week. If not several times a day when i publishing things like load up a bunch of stuff in the clipboard and then go back and fetch it in another application real quickly is a real life saver for me. I mean it's a game changer if you don't have if you don't have some mm sort of clipboard history system and you find yourself going to document copy then go to different paced and go to different document copy i mean rather than just like collect all all that stuff once and then go put it in with clipboard history up. It really improves your speed and just sanity frankly. We're going to take take a quick break to talk about hover one of the shows longest running sponsors. We know you love learning about tech and hovers a great tech company to talk about.

I don't have the app installed. I installed it for this episode but it's not something that i that i rely on on any sort of regular basis. It hasn't been updated in a long time and it seems like it's kind of an afterthought at this point yeah in fact when i you know went all in with alfred this past week and a half. I looked at the app. I'm mike. I can't think of a single reason why would want it so i didn't even install it but it's out there but it's not something that i think is particularly missile. You wanna talk about clipboard management <hes> yeah yeah because these apps both replaced the clipboard in interesting ways. How do you use is it and how does it. How's it working bar to be honest. I don't use it. It's got a cool clipboard thing so you can save save clipboard injuries. I can say the last thirty or save the ones over the last week and it shows you. The app sources where the clipboard injuries came from which makes it easy but i think keyboard maestros clipboard is so much superior you know because with keyboard maestro you can select on a you can select on a as needed basis.

I don't know i mean they. They both do i like we're seeing the beginning of the show. Both of these this kind of speak a little bit of a different language and you gotta learn the language of the launcher <hes> the good the good thing is they both have free trials and i think ultimately what you do. Is you download the both it try it. I mean one of them. They're so different that one will work in one will not for you and i actually found while you were talking is maybe renew now from version four which has just been out a few weeks. There actually is a setting now to put bookmarks and the default results. You don't have to do a keyword so that may be new do or maybe that might have been behind keyword for years and i have never looked. I don't mind the keyword system and alfred says a hit command space at the window and you give it a letter to tell it what you're doing so bb as my bookmarks. I have the same thing for clipboard history. Which we want to talk about and mine is is c._b. So in that gives me my clipboard history. It kinda gives alfred direction on where you wanna go. Because when you're only interface is a text box you either have to be really smart about what the user is doing or you have to have flags at these are can set to do certain things and al qaeda's both and launched part does both but i think more on on the smart side of it and you kind of have to get used to the way that it that it works but for me command space b._b. So fast and i chose b because it's right above the space bar so have to be my thumb very far. It's fast enough where i don't mind the extra key strokes but you kinda gotta live with it for a while and it gets burned into your muscle. Memory will like when we talk later about workflows. I made an alfred workflow that kind of duplicated other features but it limited the results to just one thing i wanted to. That's what you've done with this b._b. It's like you you are only searching bookmarks so the problem with launch bar searching bookmarks with everything else you see your bookmarks but you see other stuff to document titles and rather things get a mixed in there. I think there's an advantage and if it only requires typing additional keys to say i just want to search through bookmarks. It gets you tighter her better results so i think that's a good thing really in the end. Yeah it definitely we definitely worked for me and it's all customizable sodas. It doesn't have to be be be. It doesn't have to be two letters to set that because it was quick and i wasn't going to accidentally you know it's it's kinda like next expand triggers mine.

Yes yes and yes. I mean launch just finds them. You just type in the name of the book market finds i wish alfred had it sort of baked in with and not being behind the keyword but it's a a bit of a bummer and that's one of the things that vexed me with alfred this week as i was having trouble accessing bookmarks and i felt like it was probably operator error and i now that you've explained needed. I'm gonna have to go after the show and figure it out to make it work better for me because i do like searching bookmarks recent history. All that stuff is really useful. Oh and i know both of these apps access it but i feel like for lunch bar. At least it was easier for me to get to a couple of other cool.

It's also helpful for addresses. If you're labeling and address you can just have the text of their address really big and write the address label. There are some workflows that mimic what launch bar does. I've had really mixed lucked with them. Working in alfred part of that may be the time of recording alfred was just revised version three to version four and it seems like some workflows third-party workflows like by the community needs to be updated to fully take advantage. I don't know if that's a temporary issue or if that workflow just doesn't work so i'm not going to link that one because it doesn't actually work cause a little bit different than launch bar but for me. I'm not a <hes> as regiment emma email us as you are. Males basically always open so it's not a big deal for me the way that works but <hes> shiver sorry but but either way definitely better than like dealing with the mouse spotlight result window a really cool trick figured out with alfred and my last week and a half that that launch bar doesn't really do i can just open up alfred and say email hackett and then return and it it starts in email to you. It just opens up the composed she in apple mail with an email address to you and i that's even better in some ways it's less fiddly you know just type e mail hack it and then it opens it up and i am a big fan of the idea of getting e mails written without looking at the inbox it it does i know myself essay but both of them like the other things like i often have a need to copy and address and just like seems that was the big texting. That's super useful. Oh i use that as well wants to. Let's talk a little bit about how these apps integrate with the internet and with browser so both have bookmark mark search. I use this all the time. I'm a pretty big bookmark user actually just because of alfred so the way have mind set up. I have the key word being <hes> <hes> b b alfred doesn't put bookmark search results in line with the rest of thing so like for instance. I have a folder card n._p._r. Outlines and if i type m._p. Outlines it doesn't find it. You have to give it the key word to say hey. I'm searching my bookmarks and mine is beebee typing m._p. You and i get impune show outlines n._p._r.

He was using the launch bar and that that's the day i bought a launch bar license so i've just been using it so i just know it's under my fingers that makes sense and and and switching over to alfred for me was a bit of a learning curve to because it's just kind of a different i mean i've worked in it before. I've always tried to keep kind of keep up with different apps but i hadn't really used it as my only thing for a week and a half until until you and i agreed to do this and it is a little different but you know i kind of like well for does it too in some ways alfred. I think is more forgiving. I think so. I think you're right about launch bar really being opinionated in the way that it it is faster but it wants you to be more accurate with your input and not change thoughts. Midstream and alfred is pretty forgiving. You said to the delete key and go back and and it'll just restart from where it is which is <hes> really handy for someone like me where sometimes sometimes i'm a couple of key strokes into an alfred search and then i think what am i actually looking for and so i just sit there and think for a second and in that reset timer would get me and launch bar without adjusting that setting in terms of look look i think they're both pretty i mean as much as you can make a boxy type text into pretty they are alfred was the first to this game. I remember i. I was jealous of alfred for a while because i was so into launch bar when i first used it. It was just a box drop down from the top of the screen. It was not a free floating window and two or three releases ago. I think it was version five. Maybe they added you know the thing just like every every other keyboard launcher where it's a box that floats in the center you can re replace it. If you want. <hes> you have dark themes themes. Whatever so they're. They're both pretty doesn't really. They're the same in that regard. I think yeah thanks for the they. Both look like mac apps not some sort of weird. You know four an invader in into your mac o._s. Workspace they feel and work like gaps which is which is great and they're both say they're both menu bar apps. They both have settings.

"All right so the big to we're going to talk about today are alfred launch bar and i'm going to spoil the ending. I think they're both great apps and i don't think either one is the one you must get but i think either one is the one you must try. If that makes sense i agree. They're both really good. Their feature sets overlap very heavily <hes> but they do do things differently and they are designed differently so it may be that they both meet your knees but one sort of fits the way you think better which i think is the case exact for me with alfred is sort of work the way it works a little bit more than launch bar. I think they both are opinionated in the way they work and they're different which super interesting to me and so i guess we should why don't we do just a little summary of each one in terms of how it works and then we can get into the individual features yeah so i'll start with alfred it on the surface of it is just <hes> just like spy right so you're searching files local files network files so you can search the web really easily probably does that to we mentioned that spotlight will fall back to web results if it doesn't know what you're trying to do <hes> an alfred has a ah feature that entrepreneurs as well it will learn what you mean so again like in in my example today of searching the letters m._p._u. It's a bunch of files. I was on my on my system but i always pick the same folder or the same photoshop document after a few times. It will learn what i mean. I mean what i want when i type m._p. And it will bubble that to the top which again is designed to save time alfred is much more than that though a lot of that <hes> there's additional features which will get into expand alfred out from there and it has an extensive workflow platform really where you can write right your own workflows or import those made by the community to further extended. We'll get into how some of those work but it is. A is a apple launcher and a foul searcher but it's really extensible and smart in the way that it works past that i mean one of the fundamental difference in my head is just the input engine so they both work the same you trigger trigger command and just like spotlighted opens a box on your screen that you type into sadly. None of them involve rotating cubes but i guess i'll just have to let that go but either way. There's a box type into but they look at this very differently with alfred. It's an edible box you type in it. You can backspace you. You can fix what you're typing <hes> with with launch bar. It's just you type and it gets a result. There's no like fixing anything but but it has a timer resets the typing. It's kind of hard to explain it. I think in some ways the launch bar one might be faster if you we know what you're doing but if you change your mind halfway through it'll make you crazy because yes type and i bet that's probably one of the reasons why you had troubled rebel launch bar. That's exactly that's exactly why would launch so if you go in the settings for for for lunch. You can set that reset timer how long before you reset reset but i've always used launch bar. I mean the thing with launch it was their first and i was super into these keyboard the idea of a keyboard control role from the very beginning and as i've said before i was using quicksilver in fact the quicksilver author wrote an article where he said that you know quicksilver was really broken..

You know i it solid it does the things it does well but it's just not quite a power user thing i mean somebody asked me when i told them i've been you know working with alfred. They said well why to use any of that stuff anymore. I don't you just you spotlight for everything and these the you know went. Spotlight does is good and it's getting better. Although i'll note that in catalina there was no mention mentioned of spotlight and i don't think they've done much on spotlight with with catalina but there's just so much more as we get through the show. You're going to hear why i really believe. I don't care whether you go for launch bar alfred. I think you should really try one of these if you're not using them because they go so much further spa spotlight is customizable though so does does lack some of the features we're gonna talk about. You can't control what it does pretty well. It has its own system preference pane and has two sections and so you can enable or disable different types of search results to say you know that you want to exclude maybe all p._d._f.'s or all music files for some reason you can go in there and simply unchecked the box and it will leave those results out of your out of out of the system if you won't they won't search those anymore but you can also set folders or even drives as private which prevents spotlight from searching these locations so basically what you do is you can drag in a folder or a disc from finder so i have this setup actually in spotlight beat because alfred used this database but i have a folder that is generated. It's dropbox and basically it is a copy of all the show of notes of every show ever published to relay f._m. And it's updated any time someone posts a new episode. It's actually based on the iowa sap that relay f._m.

"Com. Now back to the story. Alfred Nobel was twenty two years old and working in his father's munitions factory. When the Crimean war ended in February of eighteen fifty six the resulting treaty did not favor Russia and Emmanuel was left with outstanding bills from wartime production that Russia refused to pay. Alfred was sent to Paris and London to secure funding for the family business. But no one was interested in investing in a Russian business after the Crimean war. So in eighteen fifty nine Emanuel had no choice, but to shut down his business and return to Sweden with Andrea and a meal the youngest of the Nobel sons Alfred now twenty-six remained in Saint Petersburg with his older brothers where he continued his experiments he filed patents for gas meter and a new way to prepare gunpowder. But his main focus was on finding a way to make nitroglycerine usable. Meanwhile, back in Stockholm, Emmanuel also conducted experiments. With nitroglycerine, but Alfred was a trained chemist and began to outperform his father who was only a skilled amateur. It was in eighteen sixty two while living in Saint Petersburg that Alfred I got nitroglycerine to detonate in a controlled explosion by mixing it with gunpowder letters between. Alfred and Emmanuel showed tension between them at this time with Emmanuel accusing Alfred of stealing his ideas, but they quickly settled things an Alfred moved back to Stockholm in eighteen sixty three at the age of thirty the family rented home on a rundown estate in the manual set up a laboratory in an old carriage house on the property where he Alfred in a meal, experimented neighbors complained to the landlord about the explosive noises. They heard coming from the carriage house, but Emmanuel assured everyone these controlled experiments were safe safe or not they were successful. In late eighteen sixty three Alford succeeded in detonating a combination of nitroglycerin and gunpowder consistently. He began to sell the mixture as blasting agent for industrial use in the laboratory in the carriage house turned into a factory then on September third eighteen sixty four the fears of the neighbors were realized the old carriage house exploded. Five people were killed, including twenty one year old Emile Nobel because there were no survivors. It was unclear what caused the explosion. Based on a manual statement, it likely happened when a meal tried to find a simpler method to produce nitroglycerin as for Alfred feelings on the loss of his younger brother or the destruction of his factory. The record is silent. He made no mention of it publicly, and it's not mentioned in any of his private letters that have survived on nitroglycerine production was banned within the city limits of Stockholm after this explosion. So Alfred setup his lab on a barge anchored in lake Polen almost a month to the day after the accident. Emmanuel suffered a major stroke it took four months before he regained mobility. And during this time Alfred began supporting his parents financially. Fortunately. He was selling more and more nitroglycerine, and he was becoming quite wealthy in the process. Alfred left Stockholm in eighteen sixty five when he was thirty one years old and made Hamburg Germany, his new headquarters, but he wasn't there often Alfred spent most of his thirties traveling around Europe and to the United States seeing after his business ventures the power of nitroglycerine, and it's low cost made it a desirable product and mineral mining railroad construction tunnel digging and even oil exploration, and it didn't have the same limits as black powder since it was already a liquid rain and dampness didn't cause problems. The nitro-glycerine also made quick work of dense rocks. Relative to the black powder that is companies quickly switched to nitro-glycerine. However in eighteen sixty six California banned liquid nitroglycerin transport after multiple accidents on one occasion, an unlabeled crate end. Ded up in downtown. San Francisco the crate exploded killing fifteen people and destroying nearby buildings. These accidents were widely reported in the media and public opinion soon turned against the product in any form after California made the transport of nitroglycerin illegal in the state, the United States federal government looked to do likewise for the entire country. The legislation also would have allowed for individuals involved in nitroglycerine related death to be charged with first degree murder with capital punishment as the penalty. Alfred now thirty to travel to the United States to lobby against the anti nitroglycerine law in may he performed a demonstration in New York to show how safe nitroglycerine was he attempted to explode the nitroglycerine in multiple ways, none of the methods including fire and dropping a canister from great height succeeded in. Creating an explosion, and this proved in Alfred's mind, at least what he said all along if the nitroglycerin was transported in safe canisters and properly handled it could not accidentally detonate. But even though his demonstration made it into the media. This was only one demonstration against a number of worksite accidents letters to the editors of newspapers across the country showed the public still feared nitroglycerine a month later while Alfred was still in the United States. He received word his German factory in Kruemmel was leveled in an explosion this further over shattered. His New York demonstration and seem to seal the fate of nitroglycerine in the United States. However, Alfred had a business partner lobbying congress on his behalf. Thanks to this the anti nitroglycerine law that passed just weeks after the Kruemmel explosion was a weakened version of what was initially proposed. Alfred's ability to sell in the United States was not impacted as greatly as he intimidated, but it did renew his energies to find a safer way to manufacture transport and use nitroglycerine looking back on some of his earlier experiments. He knew he must find a solid he could mix the nitroglycerin with that made it more stable, but not less effective with the clay. He gathered from along the Elbe river in Germany. He found the perfect substance in English we call the substance diatomaceous earth. This is a fine powder. Made naturally from the fossilized remains of algae mixing the nitroglycerin with the powder formed a paste that could be molded into sticks matching the size and shape of drilling holes. The sticks could be detonated using a blasting cap. Also, invented by Alfred in eighteen sixty seven at the age of thirty four Alfred patented this new product he called dynamite. From the Greek word dynamites, meaning power with the safer product available orders increased and Alfred continued building

Critics have said the establishment of the Nobel peace prize was largely a public relations move on Alfred's part.

Alfred Bernhardt hard Nobel was born in a drafty apartment in Stockholm Sweden on October twenty first eighteen thirty three. His parents were Emmanuel and Andrea Nobel Emanuel was an inventor engineer and businessman, but a series of bad business deals left the family bankrupt in the year before Alfred was born Alfred reported that he almost died at birth and was a week infant hardly able to feed the building his family lived in was barely insulated in baby. Alfred was sick during most of the cold Swedish winter as though ripped from Hans Christian Andersen tale Alfred's, older brothers, Robert and Ludvig sold matchsticks on street corners to help the family put food on the table, both manual and Andrea believed education was important. However, they could not afford the fees for even the least expensive state school. So Andrea opted to homeschool the chill. Alfred was a quiet and curious child. He showed a keen interest in how everyday items worked and he liked to take things apart, but financial stress and emanuel's short temper made home life to mulch office in eighteen thirty seven the family's fortunes began to turn. When Emanuel met the governor of Turku Finland LARs von Hartmann, Emmanuel in Bonn Hartman, discussed Emmanuel's ideas for land mines always the inventor Immanuel had developed a way that these minds could be used in water to protect countries from attacks by sea. Von Hartmann was impressed with Emmanuel and offered to introduce him to people in tour coup who may be interested in implying his inventive mind as a manual had failed at selling his ideas in Sweden. This move seemed to be his only option except the Nobel family could not afford for all five of them to go. So Emmanuel set sail for Turku on December fourth. Eighteen thirty seven alone with plans to bring the family to Finland as soon as he could afford to Emmanuel lived as frugally as he could and Turku sending money home to Andrea in the children, including for your old Alfred, but it simply was not enough borrowing money. The industrious Andrea opened a small shop selling fresh foods by working the store day and night herself. She was able to make a small profit. She was even able to send their eldest child Robert to the least expensive school in Stockholm in December of eighteen thirty eight after a year in Finland Emmanuel moved to Saint Petersburg where the Russian government had a keen interest in his military products increased the family's income and Alfred was finally able to enroll in school in eighteen forty at the age of seven Alfred was avoided reader before even began school. He impressed his teachers parents and even his older brothers with his capacity to learn quickly. And his dedication to his studies. Even at a young age. It was obvious that academia was where this small frail child stood out from the crowd in October of eighteen forty two Emmanuel had enough money to reunite the family in Saint Petersburg, Alfred now nine years old never entered a formal school again not that he wouldn't become well educated. Emmanuel's business was doing well enough that he hired private tutors to teach his sons in their new home rather than sending them to the local school that taught only in Russian they studied science languages and literature just like at the state school in Sweden Alfred established himself as a diligent student. He took on tasks beyond his assigned work, for example, as a young teenager. He translated Voltaire from the original French into Swedish and then back into French. Then compared his translation to the original to see where he could improve. But there was another very important. Thing to come out of Alfred's teenage education when he was fourteen he was introduced to the compound that would become his life's work Alfred's chemistry. Tutor told Alfred and Emmanuel about a new substance created by Italian chemist, a Scanio, so bro. This Obrero called the colorless oily substance pyro glycerin, but it is now known as nitroglycerine Alfred tutor had a small amount of nitroglycerin, which he poured on an anvil and hit with a hammer. The nature Lucerne exploded Emmanuel as a manufacturer of military weapons was immediately interested in the powers of this substance and Alfred's fascination with chemistry made him wonder about this new creation. Alfred continued his studies at the age of sixteen. He showed a strong interest in literature and poetry Emanuel was concerned. Alfred saw this as a possible career path while Emmanuel supported writing as an adequate hobby. He expected his hard working intelligent son to go into a science related field. Emmanuel offer descend Alfred abroad to study with scientists if he gave up writing as a possible career option at seventeen Alfred. Agreed. And he was sent to Paris to work in a laboratory while in Paris. He met a Scotto Subroto the inventor of nitroglycerine in learning. More about the substance. Alfred became interested in finding a way to control. Roll it. Alfred saw the practical uses of powerful explosive in the construction of railways and roads at the time black powder was the most powerful tool they had to cut through rocks and mountains, but black powder also had its drawbacks. I the blasting holes had to be dug deep and close together to get enough blasting power second black powder didn't work when wet and demolition halted if it was raining or if the supply of powder got damp and third. It wasn't always up for the job. For example, black powder was no match for the thick granite of the rocky mountains. Nitroglycerine held the promise of tunnelling through the continental divide in Colorado. Paving the way for the future. Transcontinental railroad. Alfred could already imagine the possibilities of properly harnessed nitro-glycerine, but Subroto who was permanently scarred by shattered test tube during his experiments disagreed with Alfred theory that nitroglycerin could. He made stable enough to us after a year in Paris. Alfred travel to the United States to spend a year studying with John Ericsson an engineer who Emmanuel knew when they both lived in Sweden Alfred returned to Saint Petersburg in eighteen fifty two at the age of nineteen to work with his father. He continued experimenting with nitroglycerine using a manuals factory to manufacture the substance, but he didn't have time to solely devote himself to these experiments. There was a lot of work to be done for his father, czar, nNcholas the I wanted to expand Russia's influence and borders to this end he began modernizing the Russian army Emmanuel's company provided guns. Steam, engines and land and sea mines in October of eighteen fifty three the Crimean war broke out the primary issues behind the war were control of certain areas of the holy land and Russia's desire to expand into the. Weakening autumn an empire. Russia was facing war against an alliance of European powers and emanuel's munitions business had almost more work than he could handle he continually ordered more supplies and installed new equipment to keep up with demand. Alfred however could not keep up with the work physically. He grew from a sickly boy to a man who has played with severe digestive issues and migraine headaches after falling ill. He was sent to a health spot recover when he was twenty years old, but Alfred found the health spa difficult because he was ordered to rest and Alfred did not like to rest he was always moving both physically and mentally as soon as he returned home. He got back to work helping his father's company create weapons for the Crimean war. But an industry built on war. Does not always last up next the family's fortunes, again, take a turn.
