"amundsen" Discussed on Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal
"Minnesota public radio's Dan Crocker reports. Outside the little town of renshaw, Minnesota on the locally laid egg farm, it's 5 45 a.m.. Most people on vacation would still be snoozing, but not clay Yeager and his 9 year old son Isaac. For them, it's time to let out the chickens. There's a come on out. For about 50 bucks a night, the jaegers can sleep in a small outbuilding in the chicken yard. It's two thirds bunkhouse one third chicken coop, separated only by a couple panes of glass. These are our roommates for the night. They can actually see the chickens while they're sleeping. And vice versa. It's kind of a PEEP show, says Isaac Jaeger. It's weird having chicken stare at you. But if you get used to it, it's not much different. Lucy and Jason amundsen started their pasture raised egg business ten years ago. They raise 400 chickens themselves. They call this venture an Airbnb. The idea came from an article Lucy amundsen read about a local business in Scotland, where you can volunteer as part of your short term vacation rental. It is a apartment above a bookstore and you run the bookstore and I turn to Jason and I said, we could do this. Along with the bunkhouse, the amundsen is also built what they call the perch, a tiny house on stilts and a patch of Woods. They estimate they'll earn about $13,000 this year renting both out. Lucy amundsen says that would add nearly 20% to the farm's annual profit. That's real money for our farmer, and there is kind of a sad commentary there that raising food with integrity isn't quite enough anymore. And Jason amundsen says costs are up these days. Everything from wages to Ed cartons. It's just endless expenses, right? So this is a nice way to cover that overhead. There's also another benefit to having vacationers on hand. They can help with farm chores. At 8 30 a.m. guests can help gather eggs from the coops. Jason amundsen gives instruction. Put your palm down underneath the bird. And then lift the bird up. Yep, that's the way to go about it. And if they pack at you, just don't peck back. Play Jaeger and his son feed the hens and fill containers with water for them to drink. Take the water right there, lift it up and dump it. They even help scrape out chicken poop from a poop. Jaeger says he's always wanted to take his son to a farm. It's a good experience for him to see where food actually comes from. As the number of Americans who work on farms has dwindled, the number of people seeking out ways to experience agriculture has surged. Don filmy is a professor at Colorado state university who researches agritourism. She grew up on a farm in Iowa. Personally, filmy couldn't wait to escape to the big city. But to anyone who didn't get that or didn't have a grandfather or grandmother, still on the farm, we didn't get to do that. They just want to touch of Americana and to a lot of people, that's a big dose of Americana. The USDA estimates that agritourism, everything from corn mazes to farm grown dinners to dude ranches has grown to nearly a $1 billion industry. For Jason and Lucy amundsen, it's also a reminder of why they farm. Oftentimes we'll be falling asleep and we just hear laughter on the fields. And I did not expect that much joy from this. I just thought like, oh, this will be fun. She says the short term rentals have helped their business, but it's also been surprisingly fun. In renshaw, Minnesota, I'm Dan

Dinesh Speaks With a Real, Live Canadian Trucker
"Guys, I've talked off and on in the podcast about the truckers convoy and the truckers protest both in Canada and in the United States, but I haven't had someone on who actually drives a truck who's been part of all this, and can sort of give a firsthand account of it, so I'm delighted to welcome Gerard de Los Santos, he is a Canadian trucker, although originally from South America. He got his license for trucking 1993, he's been a trucker since 1995, so really over 25 years. Hey Gerard, thanks for joining me. Am I right? It looks to me like you're in your truck. Good morning, thank you for having me. The program. Yes, I am in my truck. Coming back actually from Ottawa. It's going to be it has been quite some time being there and a longer than what we thought. And just halfway back home, I will say. You said you're in Saskatchewan. Where are you making your way toward? Where are you going? I am going to saskatoon. Then amundsen, and then my way down to Calgary. Okay, terrific. Now Gerard looks like you've been in Canada a long time. You've been driving a long time, but you're originally from South America. Say a word about your background. Yes. I am from Uruguay. I came to Canada on the 89 April 89, so it's going to be April now. It's going to be 33 years that I'm here. In 95, I got my license and started driving 93. I actually got my license, started driving 95. And being doing truck you never change. Car hauling, this is my speciality, what I like to do. And do it to those, all this mandate was getting more difficult every day to deal with everything. And we decided to I decided to join the convoy and ask for freedom, basically. The only thing we were asking was freedom of choice. And to open the federal mandate to be able to cross the border to the United States.
"amundsen" Discussed on Software Engineering Daily
"Traditional ETL tool like airflow prefect Baxter. It can also include things like DBT. What do you get from this information? It's ETL information. What datasets are being produced from what? Who are the people who get notified when this job fails? What was the status of the last time the job ran, right? The fourth category is collaboration and communication tools. And so an example of this is slack, right? Often in organizations you will find that there is a lot of chatter around data on slack. And you have to understand like what are these conversations about and link these conversations to their data catalog. So they don't get lost. Similar things. You may have Jews. I think it's that are being filed around data, right? But connecting them to a different dashboard or a table that they're linked to is a pretty interesting piece of information. And number 5 is HR system. A pretty important part of the data catalog that often gets forgotten is who are the people and how are they organized, right? The fact that my teammate in the same team uses this particular dashboard every day is a pretty interesting piece of information. And yet we continue to just focus on tables and think of all employees in the company as equals, right? Oftentimes the fact that our data analysts using it versus an operations manager using it can create a very different need or search for the dataset based on who is searching for it. So that's where we can ingest some team information and influence it that way as well. Now, I can go to the various different implementations for amundsen, the open-source data catalog I created, or stem, but I'll just pause here to see whichever direction you want to take it in. I'd love to know a little bit more about that ingestion process and how much work went into being able to consume all those different sources and normalize it or are there off the shelf tools for consuming and normalizing those different sources. Yeah, so a little bit of background here is that I started stem in 2020, part of that I was at Lyft where I created this amundsen project with my team, which was an open-source data catalog. So I'll start by sharing the experience with amundsen. Amundsen was started at lift as an automated data catalog and it's primary goal was to serve data analyst and data scientist audience and it was pretty successful I left 750 users every week, 80% of the data scientists data analysts and data engineers used it every week to search, discover, understand data. In terms of the integration and how much work that was to bring in that data and normalized, there's an ETL framework in amundsen that's written in python called data builder. So essentially, in order to get information from your dashboarding system or your data warehouse, you have to write a new data builder job for a new kind of system. So you bring in snowflake, there needs to be data to build a job for that. You can configure it and then ingest your metadata. And so on and so forth. Writing a data builder job is writing code. It's written in python, but it's also not as simple as punching in your credentials and just having that job run, right? And so one of the things that we've done in stem, for example, is we've taken all that complexity behind the scenes. So in stema, you go to an admin console, you put in your snowflake public key and stem I was able to pull the appropriate metadata from snowflake through a service account that you created. But someone has to do the dirty work, right? In one case, that's you and the other case, that's your provider of the data catalog. And the same story kind of exists for other systems too. There's a data builder job that pulls in team information. There's a data builder job that pulls that information from your BI tools, APIs, to get information about what dashboards exist to commonly use it, so on and so forth. Awesome. So we've given a basic overview of how data gets into amundsen, you touched on a little bit backing database of using neo four J, can you just clarify why a graph database makes sense as the backing storage system for a data catalog? Yeah. And so that is correct for that core centerpiece and the open-source project that we created at lift. Amundsen, it uses neo four J in the back. And it made sense because we thought of all the metadata that we were storing as a graph. And we thought that the traversal of the graph would be one of the key ways in which that metadata gets accessed. That was the primary reason being honest with you what we have learned over time is that it is pretty clear that the data being represented as a graph, but often the traversal patterns of that graph are not most graph like, right? So compare that to a already BMS. We could store that there and we could have a graph stored in an RDBMS, but there are certain styles of traversal patterns which will not perform very well in the relational database. And we found that the patterns, the cost we were paying for storing in this new for geographic, we were not taking advantage of it in the pattern. So one thing that the community has done is it's created different connectors and made this particular back end swappable. So the first backend for the project was new for J and then now it supports a relational backend. It also supports Apache Atlas backend and that way it's compatible with Apache Atlas, which is an older.
Mike and Caller Ron Discuss the Sickening Crime Wave Plaguing American Cities
"Ron and San Diego here in the relief factor dot com studios wants to weigh in on this crime rave, this surge we're seeing throughout the country. 81 year old music executive's wife shot dead in her Beverly's Beverly Hills home last week. Hey Ron, how are you? Hey, Mike. You know, I'll tell you the crime ways that sweep in this country right now and all these cities is just out of control. And the thing that kills me the most. And you know, I'm close to this, George gascon guy up here in LA. And, you know, this guy wasn't appointed, Mike. He was voted in. I know. By the people. And, you know, they reelected that mayor garce city. And you know, I can't help it, you know, think that these people in LA, if you go up there, you know, I went to the amundsen theater the other night to see Christmas Carol and downtown LA. And then I'll tell in LA between the crime and the homeless, it looks like a third world country. It stinks, it's what I'll never go again. Ron, listen, let me take you to the other coast for a minute. I walked through the 42nd street subway station, a week or two ago in New York City. It was like between the angry aggressive, homeless people and creeps. It looked like a movie set from night of the living dead. It was like the zombies. It was unbelievable. It was scary. It was and people are getting assaulted. There were two women beaten, so badly the other day by a guy who had been arrested 14 times and they won't lock him up because of bail reform laws, the one woman is permanently disfigured. Can you imagine a tourist visiting Los Angeles wants to go see the Christmas Carol or go she rock the Christmas tree at Rockefeller center in New York and you get beaten to a pulp and they won't put the perpetrator in jail? Because they were for me. Mike, they have the early release program here in California and it's like these criminals are running the streets. It's just if you defend yourself by God, you're the one that gets thrown in jail. Oh, you pull out a gun and shoot what you blow one of these miscreants or away? You'll wind up in 20 with 20 years behind

"I don't think they're a fifty one team but anywhere from like forty five forty seven. Forty eight wins. I could see the bulls is getting this year. It's sores real interesting. Because i do think the pacers are good litmus test for chicago because I think both the i would personally. I'm higher on chicago this year than than indiana part of that might make bias from from covering the team like a i. I think that you can look at it chicago. And so i think there i mean they have the best player in zach levine. I would say that he's the best player out of both teams personally I think overall you have just the the best collection of high talent and offensive talent Better self creation. I know that there are more questions about the defense. And i'm i. I'm not as questioning with indiana's defense. They're going to revert back to some better base stuff. This year lake just point being like. I think there's there's more there that you feel a little bit more comfortable with in In terms of higher level creation on the bulls. which is you know. That's not what everything deduces down to but to me. I think that matters a little bit more like like i. I would trust the Our trust the bulls if okay. Let's this it's a very herky-jerky wavell blake. If i give the bulls one possession to score in the half court compared to the pacers having a score one possession half court. I probably believe in. Let's say throwing coaches out like if we were playing straight rec league park you know. Ymca ymca i here. I trust in the bulls to throw out something that is going to result in a bucket. More often pacers And that's that might be like the most asinine way possible of looking at whether or not i will even a team. But i just think that the bulls just have a little bit more than i think is compelling to me in terms of higher talent. But i'm definitely changed up throughout the year. But i agree. Like and. That's just my estimation to like. I think this team i would agree. Like probably around sixty like i think my range with them in my preseason preview right now is like i think four to nine. I'd be shocked if they don't make the playing game. But i think it's entirely possible that they do end up in the plane like just given the way like if things really don't hit in some ways and things really hit for other teams or their injuries that you can't really see now that pop up which i hope don't but you know that's always a factor I think you could say that. But i also think if things really do click if the offense is awesome the defenses like seventeenth or eighteenth or something like that and they have a good stretch of health like i could very wealthy than being a top four seed army national. Just say for. I would be kinda surprised muscle behind that but as far as playoffs..

"I wonder if they do a lot of weinstein's done with the jazz in like five minutes. And you just pull out to starters together and run them with the bench unit later on in the first quarter and just doing some things like that instead of you know like more traditional sub patterns but Yeah i'm there's so much there will mark you mentioned. I think i think you're right was dhamar and as a good pairing together because that can pop and because of their both great passers low turnover guys but also if you look at the the rest of the guys are transition game this year and the the personnel we have for is phenomenal. Because if if you have dhamar now on the bench where you take you. Pull them out. Bring out derrick jones junior. Alex crusoe kobe. Why these guys can run transition lawns as phenomenal transition. Passer and creator. Zach levine ozzy. two-time dunk winner. Navy say more Patrick williams dj like these guys can all get out and run on the break. And just there's there aren't a lot of weaknesses in the half court in transition. I think they just have the right horses for this race. And i agree. I mean it's hard to see this offense being less than ten tonight. I really think they're gonna be top five in the nba. I think that's going to help mitigate as mentioned earlier a lot of the defensive owes in if they can be top five offensively in summer in the team's defensively when we're looking at a really quality call seating going into the playoffs and i don't see why they can't use something like that. Yeah so two more things. I wanted to get out of here and that's number one. I want to talk about the very very back into the roster and looking at the way rush can be finalized because we hit it on a little bit earlier in talking about alyce johnson tyler. Cook stanley johnson. Who are you guys. Kind of hoping or looking to to see you know the way the roster mike get rounded out two of the guys that i'm in what will the first guy Is i look at him and watch his game..

"I said when you saw in the summer league when you get that ball in the mid post like you you you just saw he is something that when you look at and you could tell by language when a guy is in his spot you could just tell and i think that's some something that they stumbled upon in the summer league and they also damian. Qatar had talked about it as well. but yeah that's something there's a couple of things i you can attack to to get packed going but we'll see man Yeah that's what i got. I agree i think. Summer league was instructor for me. Seen how pat was as the main guy and leros right that that mid post area really got him comfortable. But also i was looking at a shooting because i i know the three point shooting larry mentioned the lack of confidence or he would hesitate and often he would he would pump fake take. Take wonder landon pull up mid range. And he's good that mid-range he gets. He gets them height. He's got those big hands he's he's a great shooter there but he needs semantic those three point shots. One thing i really like summer league was his release was a little bit faster and cleaner and he released it with confidence. He didn't hesitate like he would just he'll dribble up he. He pulled up a few times and just took that three without hesitation in his role is going to be. I think offensively his role is going to be a little bit too ministers year because as you mentioned the pecking order mark. He's in fifth out of that out of five in that starting lineup and he's probably going to be third in the bench. Unit for being honest in pecking order. And i really think they're gonna put they're going to. They're going to stagger the three stars. Right if you consider zach dhamar and and Which the stars. They're going to stagger those lineups law. So pats really going to have to make his money on those three point shots and those cuts and that's going to be really important from offensively defensively at has a lot of opportunity to show what he can do as as a front court and help defender but the ad for for the for the offensive capabilities. He's got him. But i think it's going to be a slower process and tours done two or three years down the road when dhamar may not be here anymore. I think he's going to be able to slide into that role pretty effectively. And kinda take over that playmaking an additional duties in that way. Yeah so i. I really like what you guys are saying. I think for me the biggest thing with him and i. I felt pretty good about his decision making last year already especially considering his rookie like he makes quick decisions especially considering what what. The state of the team wasn't where he was I think the biggest thing for him is just being more opportunistic. I think it's going to be taking stuff kind of like. Obviously he fatter different players different athletes. But i think taking as much as possible from what that young did last year would be essential for for what he does this year. Like flashing mid post just making quick touch passes doing things like that too if he does flash mid post in some kind of switch happens if he does get more. Let's say you know the second. He knows that there's somebody four inches shorter him that you can body like okay get the ball spin. Go to the rack. Like that's the stuff that you saw with that all the time last year as soon as there was any kind of mismatch even though you don't think that is a great whore like us..

The chicago bulls made some massive offseason changes. Which we've talked about a lot offline and online as well and i'm very excited to dive into the steam and what we think they're going to look like in in some of these expectations as well. I think the first thing that i want to talk about before we get really nitty gritty is. What do you guys think about the defense. I wanna talk about the defense. I because i think i have gotten to a point where i am sort of just really hearing some of the conversations about the defense because i get it i understand and i'm not trying to sound Dismissive of people's opinions but at the same time. I think everyone's looking at this way too much through a playoff lens instead of saying. Hey this is the regular season. Schemes are different in the regular season. You're not to attack the same way in the regular season and it's just easier to construct a defense that is going to be a plus or at least average in the regular season So i guess alternate over. You guys chris. Let's start with you i mean. What are you guys. go both or something wherever. But where are you at the defense foreign kind of your expectations for this year. I feel similar to you. I'm a little bit perturbed at this point by. I think it's more about the narrative behind the defense. I think there's reasons to be concerned about defense but a lot of national media has been just outright. Dismissive of Has outdated opinion. I think of a few.

So you guys. Like the nets. For example kevin durant kyrie irving and james harden doing supreme efficiency. But they've also got to be a guy next to them doing that help in that out. So what zack has done. I think is vaulted into that. Conversation for sure I mean he'd be well deserving if he got it. I don't know if he will. There's a lot of deserving guards this year he probably doesn't have as much poll as the other guys do. But i think on on flat out does he. Has he deserved it. does he deserve it. This year has ended. I think yes so. I don't think he's gonna get it. But i think he'll be just on the outside looking in I think if the bulls hadn't made any moves at the deadline it would be relatively likely that he keeps up the scoring efficiency and scoring volume. That he's had so far this year But i guess a small kind of consideration with the acquisition as that which is gonna take a lot of shots and zach isn't going to be required to do quite as much and so i think They said on the broadcast last night. And i don't think it's a bad thing at all. I think it's a good thing. Zack is gonna have a lot easier. Just not have to work hard. But i think the volume's going to go down a little bit and really like big claim to fame terms of his all. Nba resume is top. Five scorers in the league if he drops out of that and especially if the bulls like struggle to make the playoffs. I think it would be tough for him to have a case. But i think he's certainly like right up there very very close. And if i'm wrong. And he just like goes nuclear and or the bulls like make up a playoff run..

"I remember where i was. I was quote unquote clocked in at my job. My first out of school job. And i'm sitting there thinking i i read the article and it's one of those moments where you just have to laugh if you don't laugh you're gonna cry because like things were we were pretty down bad And so i'm just sitting there and my job. I'm thinking like boylans. Got these guys working like me. What is he doing. These are professional athletes. Treat them with a little respect and treat them like adults and at this like we were already at the point. I feel like we're both fans had couldn't tell that boylan was not it so it was pretty easy to laugh that one off but yeah glad. He's glad he's gone now. They're just memories. I actually funny enough. I was was an off day. And usually when i'm off if i'm not like hang with my kids or my wife i'm on youtube like looking at Euro basket Euro basketball coaches. Like you know maybe teaching newsreels or teaching how they are coached there player at how to run the press or i play pick and roll and things like that. That's what i'm usually doing. And i actually had just click on a video Of jim boylan teaching. How the spurs run their scheme and how they get everybody to move as one on the defensive end and i'm listening and the guy brings out Rope and literally ties. Everyone like puts a loop on each person. And it's like this is what we do in the nba. This is what how we teach unhelped side. You move as one in hybrid number like what and then literally. A notification comes in about the punch clocks. Oh my god this is. He's our coach. I i can't. I can't believe this man i just for sure man. Yeah not to keep piling. But i was i. Just i'm just remembering you more about the pod now is just like your like our doing shelter like entire practice is doing sorry just money. It's just so wild too. Because i remember at the end of the hoiberg era like when he takes over at the end of the season is like this is great like they actually care. Everybody loves him then. The leadership council. Like all this stuff just good times so. Rei this is. This is the last one How do you feel about the The black and red pinstripe. Jerseys would you wear them again. i was always fond of them. Even though technically chicago's not really a pin city. I was i was a fan of it. I know it's probably gonna come back because nike socks. And they're just like a new jersey every year and see what happens. You'll buy it and we'll get money or mia. I love jersey My son actually has a jimmy butler one But i i. I love it and i love to see a comeback.

"I mean he was you know he switched on the kimba was not in his lateral. Lateral movement was looking good and then just one of his devastating setbacks in. I just remember at least just falling to his knees in falling all the way down to the floor. I mean that that is i. I know some people have those great offense. I mean great moments in feliciano like that he's either don't gain or as layer or whatever but i to me though to me that was like that. Let me like just in that game itself. That was like the cherry on top. Like okay. I am what i thought about. Felicia probably isn't it And then on a good note there was. I believe were planning in houston and he had a block the way it was on the team. We were playing and he had a nasty. Like i mean he. It was a fast break near net. He's trailing sizing them up and he. I think he sent the ball into like third or fourth row. So i was like you know valeo always cool man but i respect him getting that back man i mean. He's he's chilling. You know you. Can you can hit the man. He's getting a bag. The game of basketball you know he's got he's the best game he's got the best job in the world ler best job in the world. Seriously noah oh i think he's i think he's got some bags laugh bike. I think he's going to go back home or go to a smaller league with a little bit less attention. And he's the kind of guy that like. I hesitate to use the term bump slang what summer league can be for guys with a little bit more experience but like he's a pretty talented offensive center and he can be pretty fluid so in a league with a little bit A little bit lower average level of athleticism and maybe less frequent scouting..

"How how do you see him fitting into what the teams over the next year or so. Yeah i mean as you said. I think people are kinda high alone him right now. He's he's had definitely up and down year. He was placed into a role as a starting point. Guard that i thought was really ambitious for donovan to put him in a special two aspects of the team. He did fairly well as far as he. His assistant number ratio isn't isn't poor and he's making basic reason he's i think he's improving but it it kind of took him away from his strengths. Which is that microwave score. He can get really hot. Immune you see. He exacts at the record for eight made threes each court. He can get hot. He can be really impactful that way. The problem is having him zach next to each other. It was really really struggled. Offensively and the person who took the brunt of that blame was hobbies the center which is cartagena. Daniel gathered the most forest sometimes mobile fad. But kobe has been a really poor defender all year so having him more limited role i think is going to ultimately better for his development. I i still believe he can be a valuable contributor to the team but more than that shooting guard role more than six manual not blaming his his ceiling. He may get there. I mean we saw. zach levine. How many times he he impresses with his jumps. So i'm not writing them off. He's got a lot of talent and he's on a rookie scale contract. There's no reason for us to to give up on him. He definitely has ended up and down year though. And i think his lesser role going forward. I think we'll be ultimately helped him in this development for me i still believe in his scoring ability. I i still believe that He can be ano- everybody says it's like a louisville or jamal crawford but i mean i feel like that's completely year pretty good cop in what he can bring.

"Than a small forward but he's doing pretty well. I think overall maybe our best perimeter defender which is not saying much when he got kobe. White zach levine. Reinhart's jackson's adding those guys out there. But he he doesn't take off table his shot for long. I thought it would be hand. I'm really excited for him. Going forward tell the other day that it. It's a show has decided to remake the denver nuggets in the chicago bulls was actually being taken murray spot patrick billion taking that that That jeremy grant spot you know that kind of do it all forward next to a passer big like yokich that we've got now in buddha that so i'm really excited i mean he's he's definitely the the reason we all hope and i think the front office is really banking on him growing lot in the next few years to take advantage of Anzac beans prime yet. I'm glad that you guys touched on. Obviously all the great Traits that pat already has displayed so far in and like. I don't know if anyone's mentioned it yet for sure not. I might have missed it if we did. But is the second youngest rookie in this class after alexa pocus have ski so You know ages are pretty. Pretty good predictor for higher ceilings. Especially if a guy's already contributing at a low end starter level as a rookie And i think a lot of the fruit in the a lot of the kind of low hanging fruit and pats development is within his reach in the next couple of years and there's a very clear role progression for him in the sense that he starting as a small forward now which is great. He can do combo forward things and fits neck great next to fat as well. The spacing is there so his inconsistent kind of catch and shoot mechanic. Sometimes can can be a little bit forgiven especially when their space like you guys mentioned to cut into attack closeouts from advantages that have been created by either zakar route so that's fantastic Getting minutes for pat right now is really really good and the best possible thing you can hope for and in terms of that role progression like data on the older end of the squad. He's on a partial guarantee next year. Although i do think the team will bring him back and that secondary rim protection means that will can slide up to the the nominal four play next to vote and we can look for another wing potentially in the future. So i think the the front office has done a good job so far building with both the present and the future in mind and pat while he seemed like kind of a future pick at the time has proven that he can play a real role on a team. That wants to win. Now you know maybe we're going to have to do. Go with a matchup specific. Maybe we need to play garrett temple for some specific matchups. Maybe we need to do something like that. Or maybe even troy brown junior. He can kinda ramp up get with the teams trying to do and show a little bit of of ceiling there in something to hope for but yeah. I've been really impressed with pat so far..

"Hopefully he can take advantage of kind of easier mismatches and a little bit more Offense of responsibility with that bench unit and find himself a nice contract with another team. Where maybe he fits a little bit better with their timeline and their roster as it's currently constructed. Yeah yeah definitely. I mean i i felt very similarly to just again as an outsider. It's very apparent like he just doesn't fit And now that we have that out of the way. Unless you guys have anything else you want to add. I wanna talk about patrick williams. Because i continue just be so impressed with him and love his game. Like defensively I think that's what stuck out the most music washing. The starting lineup fully actualized in what they can do together the synergy already is looking great like just the passing between dad pat. Pat is like your worst passer out. There is like kind of ridiculous like that. I'm really excited for what that group has moving forward. What have you guys thought about him. And i don't. I don't love like saying what if somebody ceiling because we just have no idea sometimes but from gauging perspectives. I think a lot of people view him as really like the best young prospect on the team. Because i mean accent prospect anymore but he's fantastic i just. I can't get enough of his game so for me. patrick okay. Before we get to the good. I just wanna save. I feel like him being the starting lineup early on it was great for him. Because like arturo said in the draft. Like you go. You're drafting at high. You're you're drafting. hit home runs. You're not really taking the safe pick. So obviously they think so highly of this guy. They think that he can be something you know who knows. Maybe all star level whatever but The things that he brings to the floor already at a young age i mean for this team.

"Well it's tough you know we've given lower a lot of rope. We had before this year. We had you know a lot of data that said. He's an average three point shooter now. He's still seven vitale tall rights so that was always the thing that kinda kept up which he says he's gonna come around these other things. He can develop other parts of game he just needs to people in the post mortem needs to get better passing. He needs to be more aggressive to create his own shot. None of those things have really come to pass in any of the four years now. He's been here. And i think it really solidified. It was coming in because of each is basically the supercharged version of what we hope. Lowry marketing would end up being right stable. Shoot the threes blog post without the high post. You know a passing game. He's at least competent. On defence larry. Mark just really. Hasn't taken a leaps forward and so now as of the last game he's been benched onto the bench because as you mentioned sad. Young has been incredible this year. And he fits really well alongside rich and Better with daniel thais on the bench. And i think that's a fine role for him going forward for the season but ultimately we need to use our cat's face this summer to sign perimeter defenders and maybe a point guard. We really lacked in that for years. Since basically derrick rose went down and so the money doesn't seem to fit lower barking and going forward anywhere. He's gonna wanna get paid in fifteen twenty whatever plus million dollars. I just don't see the bulls having kind of capital to put towards the player. Who's ultimately going to be on. Benches will now go off of that. lowry is. He's frustrating in. I'm pretty sure a lot of people. There's going to listen to his arm. Gas and therefore watching bulls games. The longest can also agree with me on this but like for so many since he's been in the league it's always been about his potential link. Oh if things start to click you know he can be this he can be that. And it's we're at the end of the rope. At least i i. i'm..

I was in the basement of my college apartment. I had buddies over to watch the game and when he called the timeout and like we all knew he didn't have it. I was freaking out.

A Shortwave Christmas Carol
"Hello anybody there so matty. Yes ma'am last week Brit and I connected to a radio station she's visa. I am radio in Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania have a conversation with space physicist and electrical engineer Nathaniel result. Thank you very much. It's a pleasure to be here and in two two thousand fourteen. His research took him to Antarctica cool. Yeah home to the South Pole and hub of scientific activity with research stations and field camps spread across the continent. New Zealand has a station down there. Several European countries due to scientists are asking questions. You can only answer in Arca and the Southern Ocean this time of year about wildlife wildlife like penguins. Yeah sure like penguins microbiology. tectonics the northern lights. Daniel was down there to look at the earth's magnetic field and polar regions. I picture this whole space. Mattie like science summer camp but spread across a desolate icebound landscape. What a dream? Yeah you're kind kind of summer camp and these people. They're far from home. which can be really tough? During the holidays so nathaniel when he was down there took part in a musical tradition tradition. That cues up every year on this day December. Twenty four South Pole station. We're ready and standing by thinks the Antarctic a Christmas carol basically the different stations in Antarctica. Sing to each other over shortwave radio. Oh my God this is legitimately the cutest thing you're seeing over the radio Transmission was from the Amundsen Scott South Pole station ahmanson shadow yacht ought. Here's a Christmas Carol from the Italian station. Mario's a Kelly singing an Italian Christmas Carol. I really liked service. I firmly believe this cute Nathaniel would have to agree with you and it's a beautiful thing and you know the different stations and people they have to have to watch out for each other because it's it's difficult environment down there and annual listening at McMurdo Station in a Blue Penguin Hoodie. Sure I'll add wondered if this caroline could be heard beyond Antarctica by shortwave listeners. And other parts of the world he wanted to know how far can these transmissions Israeli travel so how far away were people able to listen well. Before the Caroline Begin thin you'll put out an alert to shortwave radio listener saying hey if you I can hear this email us a lot of snow and people did. They were able to tune in. He got emails from the Netherlands. South America places far away from Antarctica. Some people were able to catch snippets of this singing at the bottom of the world so today. On the show shortwave. podcasts looks at shortwave radio how it works how it travels. And how anything of result is leveraging. A community of shortwave radio listeners for science. Emily Kwong are short. We've expert is nathaniel. Yes he's an assistant professor of physics and Engineering at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania. Okay so obviously I know shortwave the charming daily science podcast. But tell me about shortwave. As in shortwave radio so since since the nineteen hundreds we've been using radio waves to communicate. The waves are all different sizes the lower the wave's frequency the longer the wavelength one. Of the unique characteristics. Of shortwave shortwave. Radio is that it can travel. The radio. Waves can travel long distances very long distances around the world because there are three to thirty megahertz hurts in frequency they travel through space to this electrically charged part of our atmosphere called the ionosphere and are reflected or refracted back down to Earth. If we didn't did not have the atmosphere these shortwave signals would travel off into space and not be able to travel around the globe but luckily for us. They can travel around the globe. They they propagate far distances and those with receivers on earth are able to listen. Nathaniel loves shortwave. Because you don't need a lot of equipment to send and capture one of these transmissions oh it can be incredibly simple. You need a transmitter on one side and a receiver on the other and a decent antenna and when I say A transmitter there. There are some people who they make their goal to talk as far around the world is possible with that as little as equipment as possible as low power as possible so maybe using a quarter of a awas and ten dollars worth of parts people are able to send signals that. Get the go all the way around the globe. This is the ultimate Lo fi form of communication gathering. Yeah and that communication could be anything broadcast propaganda spice stations emergency information weather reports rag chewing which is a term mm to describe people just talking about their daily life so radio twitter. Yeah the transmission just has to fall within the right frequency range to count ashore wave and there's an international community of hobby radio operators who seek out a special license from their respective governments to do this. That's called Ham Radio Ham. Yeah that's the hobby Of using this radio so nathaniel discovered that community on a boy Scout Jamboree Ham radio operator had set up a station in the middle of the woods and just turned all his crackling and buzzing sounds coming out of a radio and I heard him talking to these faraway places and and that was just really fascinating fascinating to me and he was hooked got his license in Nineteen Ninety Eight. Just a teenager transmitting to whoever's listening in the northern New Jersey New York metropolitan area area so just pure bruce springsteen propaganda it was mostly just his call son and seventy three. This is W. Two and AF whiskey to November Alpha Foxtrot threaten seventy-three means best regards. It's a pretty common ham. Radio sign off eventually he upgraded to a better transmitter through a wire out the window of his bedroom and attached hatched tree in his front yard and he managed to get a hold of a station in Hungary and it was just a very short contact. But you know that was pretty neat you just throw a wire out your window. And you're able to talk to guy in Hungary and and it worked in these moments stayed with him propelling his scientific methodology and his his career cool. Okay so tell me a little bit about that. How his nathaniel used shortwave for science in a lot of interesting ways because disturbances happening in the ionosphere on a sphere space weather solar wind conditions? All of that would affect radio waves so in Grad school he was able to show how a solar flare caused aradio blackout so cool. Yeah and during the big two thousand seventeen solar eclipse which I missed because it was cloudy. Tragedy so sad but Nathaniel hosted a community science experiment through his group Ham side. The group measured how the eclipse affected the transmission of medium and high frequency radio waves. And the way he's using radio for scientific inquiry is so innovative that this year the National Science Foundation awarded him a one point. Three million dollar grant deign to do what well he wants to bring. Universities and this network of Ham radio operators together to track. What's going on in the ionosphere where short waves propagate in a more day to day way which we we don't really do right now? No not really. We don't really understand what happens on short timescales like why is the fear doing this in New York City but doing doing something else in Pennsylvania overhead and Pennsylvania and. Why is that important to understand the ionosphere to that level of detail? Well we as a planet Senate are really dependent on things happening in space and disturbances in the ionosphere do affect communication satellites global positioning systems. which are used to land planes all these tools? We rely on to keep us safe and connected and so it's very important to try to understand how everything is is is connected together in order to make this systems more robust and and in order to make them work. And in order to you know transmit Christmas carols around the world essential I think a lot of Ham radio for me has always been about connecting people from different parts of the world together. And and you know if you if you even look at like why Ham radio exists if you actually look in the the laws I believe. It says that it's for international goodwill and It's important to try and promote this international goodwill kwon. Do you think our podcast connects people all around the world. I mean we don't have three million listeners. That's how how many people listen to him radio now yet. Not with that attitude okay. I know world domination is your project but I will say I got into radio because I enjoyed tuning in and not knowing what I was going to hear our podcast definitely. Does that help so I think so so from our team to whoever is out there listening in in the world happy holidays. Happy Holidays
Is Amazon Profitable?
"Is Amazon profitable and the really short answer is yes it is actually it's quite profiled profitable stuffing two thousand fifteen going forward. Amazon is being consistently a profitable throughout history. If you've been following damn business model one of the critique that the company head head over the years is that it was striving always at very high valuation nickel bed to each earnings but the problem is if you're looking at Thomason just from the earning owning standpoint. Probably this was the wrong perspective. Because of course the company has been using a strategy combined operational and financial strategy that we can catch machine and really this is about the generating operating cash flows for for for the business even though running at very low net margins so so it means that you're running with very low net profits now betty few highlights from from from singer so yes. Amazon is definitely Prov flu profitable as being so consistently starting from two thousand fifteen and if you look at the numbers from two thousand Eighteen Amazon actually passed for the first time at ten million in profits which is a lot whoever when we look at the Amundsen we need to understand the Amazon business model. It's very diversified. Rennell company an and you know when when we talk about the debt company that comes in with talking about the bunny which has many business models we dean so we know we are not just simply if fighting saying Amazon is an ECOMMERCE is way more than the Tomlinson is an e commerce is a lot from business model it has within Amazon days another platform which is called. Aws this which as we would see as being the main contributor or the province because eight rance with different economics compared to traditional Amazon business model and then he does other you you know Cam prime and you know the other cities like Protesting services offered the bathroom which are tied together in a way Batuta also running. They'll Saran separately because again. Amazon is a huge company so if we look at the the profits from the province simbone it's very important that we don't get just too much focus on buffy salon. I mean it's very important that we look at the bottom line. Any business model is to be able to be viable back at the same time we want to look at another viable which is Betty Betty Betty important for any business. It's cash it's actually not not even catch the the bank is actually the cash that you can generate for the abbreviation means. Do you have available cash at the end in the short term that you can reuse it to grow the business and you can reuse in the short term to make sure that you have contraction for the business and Amazon is being a going. It's cash consistently and actually a successfully throughout the years so it has always been able to to actually ensure as at a certain amount of short-term cash through tweets ovation stance also to the fulfillment centers the original deficiency through through the fact that in any case Amazon gets money from customers right away and then he pays you know the the the senators in in let's say thirty or sixty days so they kief chiefs said that the gifts that the company advancement advancement in in dental financial resources which Dan the company has to get back to those sailors but yet it had this timeframe keeps Amazon the ability to to invest the money and then make mining them pay back to you know those those practices I mean we we cannot get the the Amazon uses each celebrity du Du actually sort of expand the timing takes to pay back to its supplier something that's that's a legitimate concern weekdays at Amazon each company that takes advantage over other that source of concern. I mean it's it's I used platform mm-hmm and I think when when you're in business fitting Boston to highlight that you need to options for your business even when you are actually building up as more companies more more business unique understand the logic of this platforms because a when you're a drone within those platforms than chances are is that you donate options and then you need to follow what Thomasson thus which is not the best scenario. If you have a business you following the lead Obama Zone and you don't have options you are in bed sedation. You better understand how you create you don't distribution platform to enable an an answer your own distribution of products and then of course use other platforms like Amazon as noxious and not a as a primary option in my thinking in terms of business but having said that if we look at the reasons for two thousand seventeen eighteen the the major contributor has been Amazon. Aws that I covered a pre-match from any perspective on for week embiid come. I'm GONNA leave awesome references at some links on these notes and really Dave look recent celebrating income out for two thousand eighteen free since did did contributed to over seven billion overeating king in operating income considering over two billion overeating reading income in two thousand eighteen so it's a it's a UJA teach contribution but as I said since two thousand fifteen going forward Amazon has been consistently a profitable when for the first time the company posted in two thousand fifteen number six million Improv is actually there was really. I think two thousand thousand nine two thousand ten when the company posted this province but you know I'm seeing these this was the year that they were posted consistently growing growing very fast. We defend different economics thanks to Amazon. Aws because many say that Amazon has been running always with negative province in reality he look at years from two thousand three two thousand eleven actually the company was running with Posey Ovitz and then you know there were a couple of deep in two thousand twelve and then doesn't fourteen and then again posting a
