NHL Fines Rangers $250K for Criticizing Player Safety Call
"Completely manhandled and brutalized multiple players for the Rangers. The Rangers put out a statement on Twitter that was very heavy handed in a bunch of different ways. This has come down a short time ago. The NHL has find the New York Rangers. $250,000 further public comments to 50 public comments of the nature issued by the Rangers that were personal in nature into meaning of a league executive will not be tolerated. So it just sort on the same page. Tom Wilson gets $5000 and no games. For almost ending the career of a dude by dragging him by the hair and bouncing him off the ice. But the Rangers make a statement about that and get fined 50 times that amount. Yeah, it seems fair. While we don't expect our clubs to agree with every decision rendered by the Department of Player safety, the extent to which the Rangers expressed their disagreement was unacceptable. It is terribly unfair to question George Parker's professionalism and dedication to his role in the Department of Player safety.

Electric Cargo Cycles Deliver Packages in Miami
"In many cities delivery trucks and vans often end up circling blocks parking illegally or idling in the street while the driver hops out to drop off a package but some companies have found an alternative that takes up less parking space and creates less pollution three wheeled electric cycles that are equipped with cargo containers. You can operate them like a bike but they have power. You can run it on full electric if you need to. It's a good blend between being on a bicycle and being in a car. Greg hewitt is ceo of dhl express us. Last summer the package delivery company began using four of these electric cargo cycles in miami. Each has a container that carries up to four hundred pounds and his reloaded several times. A day hewitt says dhl express aims to get e cycles into more cities soon but i cities and states must approve and regulate their use for example permitting them to ride in bike lanes or creating parking areas for them so change won't happen immediately but he says e bikes can help make cities more sustainable by reducing road traffic and emission pollution while still not sacrificing fast efficient deliveries for our

And when i even coach when i do some individual coaching. I don't do it that much anymore. But when i do i always have them read that before.

But i just couldn't articulate it and your book helped me articulated so great great great. Wow this new book man at arms great job i really. I really enjoyed it. Thank you thanks for reading. Yeah and what. I loved about it. I don't know what your intention was when you wrote it. But it's what. I talked a lot about here on dose of leadership. Was this this idea of love. And i think that's what this book is about. I think it's about love at the end of the day. Yes it is definitely a kind of a passage from from fear to love or from anger to love because everything a serves around that. When i came from the marine corps and it didn't come clear to me until i got out of the marine corps i got laid off from american airlines in two thousand one. I went straight to the marine corps to the airlines. And then i got laid off into the corporate arena. And that's when all the lessons. I took it for granted when i was in it. Because i'm around the same same much knuckleheads all the time and take granted but it was a very loving organization that a lot of your of your writings of course gates of fire was important to me too because it talks about that type of leadership that i was so used to write in. It's very loving organization. What do you think about when you hear me. Say that You know. I had never actually thought about it in those terms. Love using the word love for the marine corps. But you're right it really is. I mean there's a tremendous. it's just a weird sort of kind of male to male love. You know that involves a lot of abuse and things like that but not real abuse now real abuse abuse camaraderie type of use. You away of of for a man to express love to another man as you know. Is it some sort of indirect way

How to Save for Your Retirement
"Every once in a while you may read about or hear about including on this very podcast guidelines. What how much you should have saved for retirement at this point in your life and they're generally expressed as multiple of your household income. But of course is there's just general guidelines right and there are many variables that will determine how much you answer listener needed to be saving to retire. How and when you want so in this. What's up bro or web as we call behind the scenes. I'm going to highlight two of those variables. The age retire and your income. So let's talk about. Perhaps the best known guidelines they came from fidelity you could find them. Just do an online search for a report called. How much do i need to retire. And you'll find them but just so we review them very quickly here. According to fidelity thirty you should have one times your household income already. So if you make fifty thousand dollars you should fifty thousand dollars in your 401k's in iras age. Forty should have three times or household income six times at age fifty eight times at sixty and ten times at age sixty seven so the guidelines that you often read about or hear about from fidelity they assume you're going to retire at age sixty seven however that's higher than the average retirement age these days. These people are still retiring at sixty four sixty five. How much should have saved up before you retire. If you're retiring at age sixty five. According to fidelity it's twelve times your household income because retiring earlier that's too few years of contributing to your accounts and you're claiming social security earlier which results in a smaller benefit. That's a pretty big difference right. Eight retired a sixty five and he twelve times household income. But if you just wait two more years you only need ten times your household income. That shows the power of delaying retirement. Just a couple more years.

Do Good Deeds Invite More Bad Ones?
"Angela i have a question for you about moral hazard sort of and poop angels. Do you know to poop angeles. I think i know what moral hazard is poop. Angels is a little tougher. So i learned the phrase in a post on next door. Which is this sort of neighborhoody version of facebook. I know next door so one. New york city resident was proposing that others join him in going around their neighborhood and pick up dog poop. That belongs to other people's dogs from those inconsiderate owners who leave it on the street. Even though it's theoretically illegal to leave dog poop on the street many people do it so this guy is saying look. It wasn't our dogs wasn't my dog but we'd all be better off if you will join me and being a poop angel. Walk around picking up the poop. So i wanna know what you think of the overall value of this idea. Would you consider it. An active civic mindedness as disgusting as it may seem with the net gain or do you think it is a sort of case of moral hazard where you not only let the offenders off the hook but you encourage them and potentially others to infect offend more because now they know these poop angels will be taking care of things in no this walk their dogs and not even take a plastic bag with them when they leave the house. Maybe they'll go by dogs for the express purpose of boosting. Because you know that the angels are gonna take care. Well stephen you may or may not know this but now that you define the term. I would say that my husband. Jason is in fact poop. Angel true no true story. Oh worlds colliding in the most disgusting way ever. What you guys don't have a dog. We've never had a

Arborists Urge Congress To Lower The Age Of Consent For Trees
"Trees. They're all around us. But who gives a shit. Well i do for one and you probably should to. We need trees for paper for climbing for pulling a leaf off of something. Living order feel powerful. But who's looking out for the trees survival their quality of life and the reproduction. They reproduce. Maybe i know even less about trees than i thought but never fear because there are some folks out there who do care and this week. A dedicated group of arbor's petitioned congress for a change. They say is long overdue. These restrictions are an outdated relic the past the tree. Then leonard's fiber to write the constitution had no idea what our contemporary society would due to its brothers and sisters join us in liberating these conifers and broad lease we need to stop legislating morality and lower the age of consent for trees. I'm joined by. Opr congressional correspondent. Marcy hammond who has the latest marcy. What should our listeners know about these crusaders for sexual freedom. Well as lead a modern fight against the high age of consent goes back almost half a century to the environmental and sexual revolution of the sixties and seventies contemporary arborists claim that many saplings are fully mature before they even start to flower and more importantly that the government should not be dictating morality or sexual agency. Several of the advocates spoke out this morning on capitol hill. These laws are unnecessary. Government cuddling they impose harsh penalties on anyone who violates their puritanical social forms. Some pine trees are producing cones as early as two years old. There's nothing disgusting about that. These seedlings are beautiful creatures with smooth bark and supple flexible branches there in the prime of their lives and should be allowed to express themselves. Have they see fit. They may only have a few rings on their trump. but that doesn't mean they're naive or immature weird. What's your take on this marcy. Well this arborist movement was on the fringe of environmental policy for years but recently as more and more people flocked to the outdoors it's gained momentum. Now there are dozens of message boards and websites dedicated to celebrating young trees and advocating for their greater reproductive freedom. What do these activist. Groups is the downside with age of consent laws for trees. Can't they just you know. wait a little. I mainly see it as a violation of personal liberty. What an oak birch sprout does in the privacy of its own grove. Shouldn't be within the government's purview. And by sending illegal agent which trees are allowed to reproduce it stigmatizes young trees sexuality in a way that is harmful and repressive interesting. Does this movement have any chance of succeeding right now. It's still very much an uphill battle age of consent. Laws for trees have been around for hundreds of years and have political support from both sides of the aisle conservatives in particular are concerned about the effects of lowering legal age. Like how will these trees care for their four hundred kids scattered around the forest. Will they get enough sunlight
"american express" Discussed on Artificial Intelligence in Industry
"So dmitry. I wanna kick this episode off talking first about just the difference between i guess the research side of the production side of machine learning. You're on the research side. Obviously you're very familiar with the business problems at american express but i think a lot of folks listening aren't really aware that there's different strata of what different kinds of emo teams do within a mature. Enterprise what are those groups you always is it research and deployment is there. Are there three of them. Were these core clusters. And how do they work at it. Yeah that's very interesting question. A little bit of background. How different companies surprise that. In fact i know several companies called in a way that okay you build a model you build this model and after that you should implement it in production by yourself and you should try that though by yourself and you should make sure that this model works and at the american express. We have a different approach in my opinion. That approach is much more efficient. So basically within american express we have several levels before we have model in production and of course the stage is when we start in a work in some business problem in trying to understand how we can improve existed mobile. Or how we can build new modal. The benefits our customers and create them more though because we do a lot of analysis date on some data some we do some across nation and after that we start working with the capability and infrastructure team. And actually this is the second another layer where they take our model. Nba implemented production. And there's very close collaboration between different flavors and one thing which is very important and in fact this is on his story i have. I didn't mention that because before. Job before joining american express. Actually i was at university and i participated in chicago competition. Ohio about cowgill and in fact just as a side note this great community and more important than alone the law. What's happening in fact. There was one competition that me and my partner one in twenty thirteen battles competition organized by by american express. But the reason why. I stopped talking about. That is that in competitions. Actually people use very interesting technique that called in sambol and symbol means that you train many different models like model and after that build another model on the talk and obtained prediction model so just combined several moguls to get and in fact that does work in production because if you try to you know iran one thousand models in production simultaneously so you will never be able to get the prediction with unlimited number time. I can tell you that. For our use case we have to make decisions within two three milliseconds to seconds to take all day to prepare features and obtained the yeah. You can't do that yes. So that's why when you do research you have to be very careful. What approach to us. Yeah okay it's not disconnected from production. Because if you just went with your capital strategies on historical sandbox data. You're never going to build something. Amex is gonna use is what you're saying. That's that's what. I learned that the american express when i joined gus when i joined. Americans press look hundred models and improved performance now. Unfortunately you cannot do that. So that's why. Might you should find mike smart the way where you can reach the performance of this and sambaing bought the gather with that defense. Yeah this is. This is a really big challenge. Dmitri is that the world you know. I think about it. Broadly could be much more granular. But i think about it. Broadly there's two sides of the talent scale that make. Hey i in the enterprise really hard to do one is that you know the vp's directors heads of were not technical. They don't really understand. Conceptually what i do. They don't really understand the representative use cases. They don't really understand strategically how it could be relevant. And so we're gonna make little toy projects. We're going to have really poor assumptions about the results. We can get within. What kinds of time and just all sorts of bad decisions from the top. We're gonna happen. Similarly people like you come in from university you know all smart and fancy but whatever you did to get an a. on your paper and whatever you did hits a winnebago competition just so different than what you need to do with limited compute in real time with actual customer money on the line integrated with real. It systems not some. You know your own little laptop with python running or something. It's so different than it. feels like. You've had to osmosis the business into you and probably a lot of the other side of amex has had to osmosis technical understanding of yes together so okay so these are hard lessons learned. Yes that's completely correct. And in fact i can tell her that. For example people who worked for on. I can tell that we have the best island because when people come to american express even people with let's say condemning experience or some research experience the learn a lot of new things than the standard exit though the things that are not like you know the similar demand if you do some package. It's very different. You know when you're working in industry especially in the

And obviously if it's difficult for you to get to the national museum of computing which it might be then virtual tories just as good because the way they've done it in such a way that you could virtually walk around the museum and zoom in on their exhibits and look at the posters on the wall and move from room to room and it was just so beautifully done that you could just meander around museum like he would in real life but there was nobody to bump into and nobody getting your way. Nobody standing in front of the exhibits. You could just meander around your leisure and revisit anytime so you can go back to that website now and have another look around the museum.

"Go right those are all You know those are all things that can be sorted out the board room. I wouldn't claim to have the answers to those questions. Some knows figure that out. The point obviously tongue in cheek being like yeah. It's hard to differentiate these things and I think. That's I don't know if it's the biproduct necessarily like the Fedex Cup stuff where like every event feels like you know has to have equal weight in every event needs to be treated the same but it's it's tough when in there so obviously not from an entertainment standpoint. You know what I mean like when when the interest level is so much less and maybe it's I don't know I mean we. We haven't seen ratings. I can't imagine they're great but we'll hold off maybe until we do but You know what I mean like I. It's just it's a predicament that seems like it has to we solved but then now with like the reports on TV contract like maybe it does kind of like the way the World Yeah Randy. I was surprised that this was one of the weeks you've You volunteered to come. Do a weekly wrap podcasts. Well you know what this this week. Always held Certain regard for me because it's traditionally been Mickelson's season debut Byu each year on The PGA tour As it was once again yeah exactly so in my earlier years and still this year that was was always a reason to tune in. Obviously he didn't play well this week. But how many times have we seen fill you know not play well at this event and just go on a tear in Saudi Arabia for sure for sure which he did claim. He's about to do which I would've probably use a different word for getting ready to go to the Arabia than than tear but the You're a big month for death-squad leaders. That's God I didn't. They all kind of put their hair up real tough decision I I feel like thank you. I know I know I feel like he's got a face heat. I WANNA I WANNA. I'm curious areas how he would really respond to some tough questioning Well his tweets about it were concerning. I think that was. You'll be you'll be okay. Okay Oh God. I forgot all about that. He was going back and it must have been like ripped on red wine or something. Who's going back and forth With a bunch of people who were criticizing or editor twitter journalists and just basically like patting them on the head. Like you need to stop worrying about this. This little old thing like this is going to be totally. Fine fills fills go. Ah like which works when it's like. Hey Phil you shouldn't have to drivers in the bag. It's Kinda cheeky. When he's like? Oh come on relax everybody chill. Hey you shouldn't be sporting like that you know regime that killed a quote record number of dissidents last year. His quote was after turning on opportunities to go to the Middle East for many years. I'm excited to go to go play and see a place in the world. I've never been which listen if you break that down. That's better that's better than grow the game in the kingdom which assured. Yeah I never a golf in the kingdom about. It's exactly it's exactly what I understand. Those who are upset or disappointed. You'll be okay. I'm excited experiences. For the first first time. And then he told to pair to respond to European Golf writer you and Murray. He said he said quote Kevin. Hart you do I'm going to do me which listen I. That's his prerogatives I. It's not good. It's just not a good look. It's all about the money I mean. I think we can probably agree on that. So it's yeah it's disappointing. He's also moving to joop which also to pierce probably all about the money. Yeah Yeah Yeah that that's A. I wouldn't think that I would have any semblance of caring where these guys live. but there's something like he's only appeal to the the whole Phil Ethos. Yeah Man. Yeah it doesn't make any sense for him to still live in California and he doesn't does it anyways because he loves it there apparently and to like hang that up sucks. I don't know what it feels like. It feels like taking l.. Does he is are all of his kids not to being called. How how old's youngest kid is that? Why why he would seem so? Yeah that was part of the House and that front. I guess it's cool that they waited 'til like kids high school and didn't move them and stuff but I I think though we can say the at least from some things we've heard like the the money situation for Tiger and Phil you would think would be just like everything is they've so much don't not even know to do with but they both have expensive habits so I think that there is still a lot of incentive for them appetite appetites A lot of incentive for them to make a lot of money I think is the most Safeway I can phrase any of that. I think that's right. I mean it's like why wouldn't you. I think I think Phil's going through kind of feels like he's been in this prolonged almost midlife crisis adjacent. Yeah stage at Diet. I'm I'm not sure if it's like that or you know if he's just kind of bored with like he's been golfing and kind of doing the same thing for our our many years now and this isn't saying it but like also might be gone it might be the game might be gone like if you look at his game. Yeah you're like yeah he's fifty right now and it's he might. He might not be adjusting. Well to that reality of thrums. I like it might make it. Okay Well Game Kinda gone. I might go take whatever two million bucks to go play in Saudi Arabia like. WHY WOULDN'T I? He's going to be here forever so I I would. Circle is all back though I would respect him or anybody else being like. Yeah it's about money it's grow the game. Yeah they're doing some awesome things over there era like the roster people like the roster people who are going to play Saudi Arabia like Americans anyways kind of speaks louder than anything thing. I think we're going to say right right. It's like who Phil Brooks Bryson. Read like who else is. Is there anybody else on the list. I tre coutries going over. I tried to get super work out. I don't think it's just like it. Yeah it is what makes it. I think some people come kind of Passover it pretty easily as like okay like what are we supposed to do like other countries are bad like like literally the country like the regime that puts the tournament on. So it's different than just like going to. I don't know what the compares like the Turkish Airlines Open I think is different than like the Saudi event in that Turkish Airlines is sponsoring sponsoring the event. The act like Softbank is now sponsoring. But it's weird event is actually funded. I believe out into your your point. It's like these guys the fills in the brooks who maybe don't need that paycheck and I get it. There are other countries that have have their own problems. But it's like yeah. Where's the line for these guys like like we're would they draw the line It's not here which is a little concerning couple people. I don't WanNa leave about who are choosing to go play this Brooks Dustin Johnson. Patrick read Tony Pheno Kinda surprising but maybe money on Shane. Lowery Henrik Stinson. Sergio Garcia Honest Abe. Sergio going back as an upset. Honestly after what happened is quote this week about about how you know. That wasn't a true reflection of him and he's willing to to. He's ready to show the true Sergio how he's what returns the Gulf in Saudi Arabia. which is like if you break that assets down into two parts like I'm ready to show that the true Sergio sick when I returned to Saudi Arabia? All right well. Yeah No. Maybe you are showing the the true guy like Martin Primer Lee Westwood. That's what I've talked to a couple of European tour players disappointing names. But it's like. Hey if gave you got into like Saudi Arabia. Would you go yeah I it doesn't even register for more and I think that's different than well. That's what I was GONNA say. I don't want to give top American. Can someone like an easy out. But if yeah if you're a European tour player who's like looking for you know you need race to Dubai points and you're trying to keep your card. You're trying to do all these things like that. Makes it a little bit more of a conversation than like no. I don't even fucking play on this tour man scum in for some cash like that not hashtag knock it no anything else from From American Express we got a lot of other events to to touch on. I don't watch a ton of other. The only other thing I we kind of alluded to it. We didn't really dig deeper into it but like so if this event is not good What needs to change? Does anything need to change. Delete says is. Do you have any ideas and I say that I say that not having any idea. Why have ideas but like everyone would be a caveat of like well? They wouldn't do that they wouldn't do that. Wouldn't do that They wouldn't do that. Well I mean how many great golf courses are there on the west coast. Yeah I mean like keeping an impulse brings you have any Not really because I the I think our default answer for awhile was like Oh it should be a team. Event should be whatever I'm like. Yeah I haven't candidly having watched the last two years right So so I don't really think it's that and the pro-am stuff like I. I don't really have a good feel for what this tournament was like. I mean I'm sure when it was the Bob Hope back a million years ago probably had raised the Diet Diet Diet Bob. Hope exactly so whatever feels outdated right like because I think he used to have I mean. I don't know all the cool celebrities used to golf connotes death-squad not even have it. It's just like like you'll see it. A pebble in a couple a couple of weeks when they trot out like for every Justin timberlake that plays once every three years which was forty two now like for every one of him. There's don't don't you dare dip thirty five or era Gary Mule deer and like the plenty melding from saved by the bell or something. And it's just all these like Chris. Berman Yeah Yeah. It's all these all these celebrities that just it snow fall to their own. Like I would play for sure if I was but you know what makes aches. That format cool is when you WANNA watch the people rather than came in. You're just really just getting in the way and Yeah I don't know the pro-am format is not really trending at him no positive or it doesn't suit the TV audience. which unless they did this earlier in the week which they've Kinda like super gone away from that at this tournament at least the last few years I mean lead into it? But maybe that's where they make all the money for I'd have to look at the receipts on that for how why. That's I'm sure there's a very good reason why they do it. It just is not great for fans but last thing I will say American Express in Randy goaded me into it by like we got tagged by a bunch of people with the Cavenaugh Russell Knox Bunker shot on the sixteenth hole Now Leaves Ball right next to the whole Russell. Knox hits a shot. I didn't even in here the audio. I'M NOT GONNA say anything I'm not I'm not doing backstopping in I'm not going to do it.

"Struggle to have enough electric available. You. Struggle to keep your climate in check, which just leads to a kind of a lower end crop. We all of the control factors in in a greenhouse are highly highly controlled and they're Thomas Lee controlled and and you're not relying on people to keep those controls in line. It's all programmed and laid out. So I think that the conception are misconception rather had to do a lot with the culture. You know whether it's your own experience or you know hip hop songs or just in any kind of factor in general, had just kind of taught people that that was the way to go. But I also think that comes from not being able to do this. You were never really able to grow in a greenhouse. You know, it's, it's obvious if you start to think about, you know how, how you would try to approach this and not have people know that you're growing marijuana, that all limits itself to basements enclosed rooms and dark spaces and far out of the middle of nowhere. Tell me weren't going to build a hundred fifty thousand square greenhouse in the middle of major metropolitan probably not. That probably wouldn't fly, you know? And if you did, people would certainly notice. I think that hope perception just is is culturally based really. And probably because when people grew out doors, they were kind of not like outdoor stuff was not great. It was sort of, let's right. Yeah, you gotta think also. I mean, I see people every day who walk into our stores in heaven, seen marijuana and thirty years. And so they start thinking back thirty years ago to what their personal experience with marijuana is. And you know, I saw a page out of nineteen seventy high times the other day it was head of picture ties stick on the front page. There were seeds blowing out of every crevice of this bud, you know, I couldn't give that we'd away in this in this town and and that that probably was six, seven, maybe eight percents.

And the thing about that show is it takes so many people to make it and throughout the entire day were always calling various people who thank goodness have our backs and help us make this show because we could not do it on our own. It's so true. We call people at the studio. We call people in the production design department. We call directors, it's an endless endless reaching out to say, hey, do you have our back and people saying, we've got you. Thank goodness. Remember in Hollywood or even real life things go better with someone behind you and with American Express, you don't have to go it alone. Because they have your back, don't live life without it, and now it's time for this week's Hollywood hat get your co workers to do a plank with you every hour and Sarah who we got this idea from our actual co work. A lot of the assistance especially have been doing playing squats, and I mean, I don't even know what else throughout the day in a group, like in a circle in the office. It's incredible to see. We'll be like working away, then walk out and everyone will be like mid one. Yeah, I walked into Brooks office the other day and she and marry her in there like at least a minute into a plank. It was very intense. So you and I have not joined in on this house, but we should, and we find it very inspiring and being obliges. The way we are, we would be much more likely to exercise during the day. You know if we were in this group of people saying, hey, it's four o'clock time to plank. Yes. Now, if we had like an alarm on our phones and every hour on the hour, it went off. This just sounds awful as I'm saying it, but I'm just going to say it if we did that, we would be doing like eight to ten planks day, right know that would be ten minutes of planking. A lot of planking are apps would be amazing. Yeah. Well, we should do this. That's why it's our Hollywood hack this, right? And people in our office are doing it. It's not like it's beyond our Reno.
