She's been the senator for California. She's been attorney general. She's been a D E A. There's no doubt that she's qualified to do this job.

"ashby" Discussed on The Tennis.com Podcast
"Panic joined in the lake known at US. Stayed National Campus Studio with my co host Irena Falconi. Hey guys. How's it going and our guest for this episode? Richard Ashby Richard. Welcome thank you. Thanks for having me. Richard Works here at the. Usda national campus. Richard tells a little brief bio about yourself then working for the for sixteen years before that coached on my own little bit privately with pros and Juniors Worked in some academies before that and so. That's my coaching background played. Junior Tennis Played College University of South Carolina. That's basically playing background played a little bit of pro after college but not that successful so onto coaching. That's relatable So what players. What age group are you targeting right now? Do you work with a specific group. Your work with the fourteen hundred girls. I'm here at the national campus. So we bring kids for camps primarily camps training weeks. We don't do a lot of traveling with kids that age. We don't have them come in. For long periods of time they usually come in for a week or two weeks of training And we work with their coaches. So we get the information back to the coaches things that we worked on here things that we see we go to tournaments have a chance to watch him play there and hopefully see them improving on things have a chance to talk to their coaches about things. We're seeing a lot easier when it's you know live where you're watching something and talking with the coach so the tournaments. It's a great option to do that. With coaches so you've been working with the USA for sixteen years. Have you been with the girls? Fourteen and under age single year no Started two thousand three so that first year and the next year we're primarily with Like junior pros so kids basically seventeen to eighteen sixteen eighteen and did that for a couple of years and then in two thousand and five started with the kids born in Nineteen ninety-one that age group so worked with an age group for few years through Two thousand eight then two thousand nine. I started with twelve and unders Jade Louise and other coach. I used to work with age group and He actually started working with kids older. So I Essentially switch places with him so from two thousand nine assorted with twelve and under and kind of grown to thirteen and then fourteen and fourteen under for last few years. Do some name. What are some players you've worked with? Amanda Anisimov was slow and Stevens. Cannon CICI Bellis Falconi yes all those players So yeah very fortunate. When we moved to we moved to Boca it was a good location. Had A lot of good players in the area so players Would come through in practice. We were able to set up a program where they're younger players. Come out and you know not every day Amanda I came out like once a week when she was younger Always worked with her. Dad was her coach. So work with her Same with Sonya and We did we actually had a pretty good set-up there where they in the morning to drilling and then the afternoons do match play and we'd be able to have kids kind of all levels. Sometimes older kids coming out in the afternoon but Amanda and Sonia. You know where kids at did that from pretty much. The beginning Sloan. I've done very little with her. I mean it's mostly been Camps or a little bit of training and Let's see who else has been out of there You know so. Yeah Irena Hell Coney for sure. Was there So when I worked with a ninety one group Sorry come and play matches Actually tell Ya arena like the first candidate when we were in key Biscayne arena. It's actually in the camp along with Alli Risk. So Mallory burdette there. You go so a bunch of kids That a moved on to play pros which is great. You know so. That's one of the things. I'm fortunate. I got to work with kids. That are the best in the country so you know a lot of them are going to be successful so I was actually mentioning that to see the other day. We were watching you practice with one of the girls. I don't I can't remember her name but she's pretty good. And I made a comment to see see I was like. Did you work with coach? Richard Like Yeah. I did and I was like. That's unbelievable when I was. I believe it was thirteen or something. I was still living in New York and I got this letter from the USDA. Do you WanNa do this. Camp Key Biscayne and sure enough it was with Alison riske Madison Bengal Whom all our top seventy have been top seventy players. It's not very common for a coach to be able to have that much of an impact on so many players that end up being professional. What is it that you have that makes that possible GonNa Know How much it is me. It's definitely good system where you know. We got a chance to see young players at an early age. I remember the first camp she came to. She was not the best. One they're You're maybe in the middle of the pack She had come to the some of the similar things she has. Now you know just the excitement. She always brings the cord and everything. So that hasn't changed. You know she's just gotten better as it's gone along so You know to be to be honest. Yeah I mean I enjoy helping the kids and you know if anything the you know. Try as much as possible for them to enjoy it as well and to try to guide them. I guess for game for the future. Now you know that's up to them to pile of things but You know most of those kids like I say we're good when they got there and you know they've gotten better they've gone long moved on to other coaches and everything so successful pretty popular name is big names that have come through the. Ashby system for all those players though that that you worked with. That didn't make it. Can you tell the difference between someone like an Anisimov an Kenan? Can you see or that early on the? Hey this kid's something different or is it more of quantity and then figuring out one or two that rice the top. There are many kids that I thought were going to be very very good. Maybe even better than those guys and they ended up not being ended up being good tennis players. But not you know making it into the pros. you know so. I've learned as gone along that. I'm not a very good predictor so We try not to pick try to just have lots of players coming through as much as possible and try to treat. Treat them all in a way that this is what you need to do to be great so they have that chance some apply while some were going to be great no matter what we did but Try to treat all the players. A came to come through with the idea that you know. Look at your game now and where do you WanNa go if you want to be a pro these things you to address and unfortunately getting to see them? When they're young twelve thirteen fourteen. They have a chance to you. Know make make those adjustments if they can. So you know the the ones that came in. Maybe I thought were really good and ended up not being so good as far as results. I think. That's just how tough the sport is. You know it's I remember the stout that somebody was saying that basically every year the top one hundred seventy six jobs available something like that. We're on the women's side so you know you have to be that good that you're going to take someone's job who's seventy in the world and that's not easy so many of these guys are good players but you know it's just not that easy to actually be a pro arena. Can you take us back to those days in that camp? Do you have any memories or things remember working on or or how you felt being part of that because you are based in New York right so you wouldn't even Florida girl yet What was that experience? Like as a as a young Irena. It was definitely. I think Not Necessarily Life Changing. But it was shocking. Because I thought I knew what I was doing on the court you know I trained with my dad for a couple of hours a day to know what fitness was and so I came in with coach. Richard and I believe was it coach Elke at the time I think we Katie's looking bear. She is Katie was Pretty much leading the campout was helping her with the camp I remember think. Jd Louis was around a little bit But I think it was mainly Katie. And either the two leaving the camp. I think that the level of competition was so high. It just was a very cool environment to be in and all the girls. Even at that age were very professional like we were there to work. It wasn't like Oh. Let's socialize and have fun it was. Let's get better which I think is one of the biggest differences in some of the camps. You see today like you know some girls. Just go out there whether it's a tennis camp whether whatever sport it is you know some people just see it as a social event and we were there to work. Even though we were very young you know that was our whole motive. There and I think coach Richard had a lot to do with it. You know one thing about that is going to bring the baskets from around the country and they all want to do really well so they all challenge each other in a good way. So everybody's you know. Basically really focused on doing their best and doing the training their best and that environment continues here so we had a camp last week where you know the kids came in and you know they enjoy working hard because that's the standard everybody. That's kind of good peer pressure and I think sometimes no some of the kids in some of their environments where they're the best kids. It's almost like they're going down to the level of somebody else because you know the. The group has a lower standard. But when you get all the best kids together they raise the standard so that definitely helps so we know Irena made the cut but how. How do you select players? How do you know which players you want in these camps and watching as it rankings results? Do you. I don't know asked our coaches their parents. Are you interviewing? Does this come together. Sure I think the main thing I look at his results so again the system we have right now. Kids go when they're say eleven twelve their instructional camps and coaches can wreck recommend them from their meaning. The coaches at work the camps might say. Okay we have these kids that did really well. And so young ones. Maybe that haven't played nationals. We haven't had a chance to see them but You know twelve's nationals. A lot of kids are playing so we a chance to see them there. And you inviting them I the camps that we have here are from basically from thirteen up For the national camps. And when I like results Kinda give you know they are okay. There have been beating these players. That and going far into tournaments. Then you see them play. And you're trying to match those things up Obviously a player. That's winning tournaments. Well it's kind of easy. They deserve to come somebody else. Who's maybe going pretty deep in the tournament but not winning them. You're looking at that and then you're looking at essentially. Do they play good tennis? Do they have good athletic skills? Do they all intangibles? You're kind of looking at with your eyes and matching that up but result is probably the like I said that's the first thing and a distinguished that from ranking because you know sometimes somebody's ranked really high because they do well in smaller tournaments but not so well national so sent you the results at you know the Easter Bowl National Claes Nationals Orange Bowl. Those types of tournaments. Those are the main results. Look at and then. You're looking to see somebody that he's not doing great but they're really fast or they have really good strokes where they play good talents. You have kids that maybe in the twelve. I remember First Time I saw clear Lou play she was ten years old and she was implanted clay courts and she's coming into the net and she comes in and you know she'll miss the volume miss the overhead. Keep coming in and you know. I remember talking to mom. After mom was shaking her head she keeps missing overheads. And Yeah but you know every time. She misses one. She's getting better not getting better and basically a year and a half later. She's winning eleven winning twelve ORANGEVILLE. So you know. And she won that tournament actually coming in and executing so again it's clear was already good but when you see a kid that plays a good sal tennis that also goes a long way and you try to bounce out results and you know up what you think. Maybe they can do. Hey everyone listening to the tennis dot Com podcast with special guest.

The impact of coronavirus across industry and finance
"The news around the world is about the unknowns that we face from their corona virus and something that is one of those things that creates and some people like a visceral fear and others. It's like You know I'm not worried about that. And I wanted to address both angles on that with practical things that I'd like you to be aware of as to whether whether or not this is going to become a threat to life and safety in the United States in fact in the whole Western Hemisphere hard to know. Oh if that's going to happen and odds are that this will be. Even though they're isolated cases that have been found around the world that odds favor that this will not spread heavily in the United States and Canada but but that's just based on historical experience that people work in public health habit. They're always always extra vigilant extra concern. One industry is facing a lot of questions from travelers and end. That's cruise lines airlines anything to do with the travel industry is. It's almost like an hour by hour thing. A bunch cruise lines have cancelled sailings. They were going to sail specifically into China and peripherally to China because if you imagine a cruise ship the close quarters people are in someone comes on as a carrier of the corona virus where it tends tends to be No symptoms for up to two weeks that somebody's contagious. That could be absolutely a hideous situation. So the cruise lines sail in that part of the world which is pretty much. All the major ones are for now canning cruises that would've would've departed from areas close to the affected regions in China. And that is part of what you do anytime anytime. There's a potential for an epidemic is you isolate and I know because we've already had people posting questions Ashton's about what do they do about their travel and a number of airlines have come up with very good policies. He's on how to accommodate people who were flying to China or certain other spots in Asia and are offering people the option of getting a refund so far our our three full fare airlines in the United States that offer service to Asia American united and Delta have not done so their policies are confusing. They are not customer friendly and they are not protective of public health. And I think about how we need because these situations can arise we need some form of system and if necessary law aw that requires during a situation. That's a threat to public health. That people should have the right to cancel travel with a full refund but that is not the deal in the United States now and American united and Delta may come to their senses because think of what happens to them long term if they become a source of what brings corona virus into widespread You know a widespread kinda breakout in the United States. So it's really dumb to tell people they have to fly or they lose their money on that case though. There's something I want you to think about with travel. You may book for Spring Summer. Fall two places far afield because we don't know the extent of this where it may go if it's something that just peters out pretty quickly or becomes a greater global concern. There is an obscure kind of travel insurance. You can buy that you pay more for than traditional travel insurance but it allows house you to cancel for any reason so he doesn't have to be covered reason. Travel Insurance providers aren't gonNA say. Oh well you know you're going to. You're going to Bangkok so we're not concerned about that. Even if you're concerned about going to Bangkok or you're concerned about going to Tokyo or whatever we don't care that's not a covered reason if you buy a policy that says you can cancel for any reason your okay and you don't get back all your money. Typically Ali with cancel for any reason policy. You get back three quarters of your money which would be something that people might be willing to walk away from a quarter. If they're gonNA have no fun or worry on a trip they were planning to take stock market. The stock market here here in the United States and overseas has reacted badly to this. And that's because investors never like uncertainty. Obviously any any travel company or any company that does business heavily in Asia is going to be affected by the market a lot of. US restaurant chains have big presence presence in Asia. They're going to be affected. A lot of manufacturers will be affected and so is unclear what the long term arm implications are for the stock market but stock values in the ice as have been very very hefty and and little high by historical numbers. And this could be a time that people take an excuse to take a breather. And you could see a Little bit of a nick to your values in your 401k or other things but there's nothing about this says run for the hills with your investing and I just want you to know that that we don't know yet how this is all GonNa play obviously but eventually like all the other things we feared like Ebola and SARS and all that eventually public health people get it under control and the tragedy for people who suffer from it and family members who lose loved ones but in terms of the overall economic performance here and overseas. It is a temporary effect Oil prices which you pay to put gasoline in your vehicle lower diesel in your vehicle. You're going to see those prices depressed. At least for a good while by the effects of this on one how much travel people do which reduces the overall demand for fuel and as the demand falls the supply arises and it lowers the price for you and one other thing I want to mention is something that I may sound ridiculous to you. But it's something I believe in so we and our home have as I mentioned before a small amount of cash because of all the methods of payment were be hacked or anything like that having cash ashby valuable. We don't have enough. It's worth anybody trying to break into our house but we have enough cash to cover several days of spending if if we needed it and we also have a good supply of water in the event that we had to stay at home and we also have a good supply of non perishable food and taking precautions like that for so many different reasons could be a storm could be a a terrorist attack. Could be an illness spreading something I that I think you should be prepared. And these are simple simple precautions that I think just make good common sense.

Martini celebrates the festive season with a limited-edition Negroni chocolate collection created by Paul A. Young
"The beloved Italian Coktail Negroni is one hundred years old this year and the Shuki pull a young has been asked by Martini to concoct brand new chocolate to mark the occasion. Well Uncles Ben. Ryland sat down with Paula. littler Elliot to talk about the creative and practical processes of marrying chocolate with such such a famous drink. Plus they enjoyed a little bit of tasting along the way I have the great privilege of being approached by fantastic brands And a half to love the brand and all I have to love the product that the brand of created and for me it has to be natural. Ashby pure and ask interesting. And I've known the Martini brand for for decades. I remember adverts in the nineteen eighties with a particular on roller skates. trae Martini and the any time any place. Any were to have a Martini so so it was. It was always a happy memory for me. So when they approach and said we've got these new reserve special and brought on Rubino for Moose my East pricked up because I'm not a beer drinker. Call volume alcohol drinker. Let one night champagne and spirits. But I like Negroni old-fashioned says bitter sweet flavors because you can have them over ice on their own stop blending them and for me. Obviously I have to blend into the chocolate. So the challenge for me was taking the two commutes on brought her which is a a number color and the Rabin which is this ruby color from youth and taste them dilute pair them with chocolate. Let's try and find a combination that celebrates negroni because the centenary celebration of Negroni without the chocolate distorting the flavors and characters in the botanical in the two Moose but also the vermouth are very complex. And they've got that distinct bitter sweetness to they can easily distort the chocolate as well so it was actually an opportunity for me to work with them on getting that balance. Absolutely right Let's take quite a long time. We always think about the delicacies Kasese that can go with a glass of wine for example. What it it's fairly common knowledge that certain foods should go with a glass of wine? Don't sit down to a lovely gloss of red wine and then and and then tuck into a box of chips not good idea that we often don't think about that same sort of methodology when it comes to pairing something something we chocolate. How do you know what goes well with chocolate? It's a really good question in two parts to it. When I when I first started in chocolate a quite few years I would be guilty? If you've ever analyzing and I think it it's the way some people take chocolate which is if you're doing it professionally or academically you do have to have a process of pinpointing and finding all of us delicate compounds flavors and tastes to the point where you're deciding whether this chocolate is fine. Quality with beans have been fermented well of picked well or and so on and so you really digging in Bolt for me when it comes down to it. I have to take it back to base level when I smell it smell texture to like the taste from beginning middle and end and Roy after the after taste does it work with ingredients and now you get people who will say what wine and chocolate hard to pair. I find it very easy to pair. That's because I've tasted a lot of chocolate and a lot of wine and I can think about those flavors starting out and you taste piece of chocolate. How would you know which one to pick their hundreds if not thousands of them on the shelf to boy Oy? It's really difficult and all I say is by and tastes and eat what you like. Try It if you think it doesn't work. You're probably right because you own your tongue on your taste spots. And if it pairs well great. An I have always with all my tastings and events set to people if you prefer eating or milk white or dark chocolate with a cup of tea fantastic few think it works for you. It probably does but when it comes down to do you like if you do great no matter what anybody else says because you a half to want to eat again and again and again I'm almost runner of the cadbury cream egg at with the woman dipping hurt chips into a cream egg. Yeah well salty and sweet is massive business. The chocolate industry tree lady is not as crazy as she looked. She has no But I I do have a box of beautiful chocolates in front of me and you just pulled me a gloss of the move which was very kind of you for this time of day. A little SIP exactly Tell me tell me first. What vermouth measuring? This has gone brought us. This is the amber colored very light fresh smell wise. I've got fruit and it has to me sympathy botanical. Medicinal that's not meant to be a negative Tiv- term. I remember as a child having buttercup Syrup as a medicine and Dundee Line serapis kind of things those botanical can pass over very successfully into a Moose yes and drinks and this has that element of bitter sweet to it which if you think about bittersweet flavor dark chocolate is bittersweet already got a really good foundation and having having having a taste It's light on the tongue but the aftertaste is really really long It's beautiful sweet as well. But not over not overpowering only switch cleverly made it very sweet not overly sweet at the beginning and then this kind of botanical bitter dryness comes in the end and the chocolate made with it is the blue and gold marbled finish which represents the best colors on the buttocks. It's a beautiful bottle. Ferry Italian design obviously and sticking with Martini brand absolutely. I think if you are familiar with the Martini a line of Vermouth e you probably would be impressed by this particular RESERVA SPATULA pull. Educate me on how I should be eating the chocolates with the truth. We've had a drink of Mussa. Still got the flavor. There have a bite of one of the chocolates list. It's the blue and gold when it has a very soft center of white chocolate. We've got some Bombay Sapphire Gin. We've the VERMOUTH in there. Got Some Madagascans chocolate. which is thought delicate fruity chocolate? And very little else the predominant ingredient in that is the vermouth because I wanted that flavor to to last on the tongue. And it's it's a gorgeous balance. The dark chocolate is just bitter sweet enough like the vermouth. Once you've had the first bite and it's melted and swallowed. I have a bit more. Vermouth just passed me. A A glass of Rabin now I suppose that means that well to be polite I would have to try some of this. You would have to try that one as well this array of full of flavor for me I get kind of a smell of time leaves and herb Leary is very very very smooth. A little a bit Rich in feeling flavor and that's represented in the chocolate as well. We've got that lovely Madagascar chocolate again. But they could nash the filling inside. I just heavier more full needs a bit more impact. Bit more strength to it. So it doesn't get lost in the Renault so now that we've had some of the redeem we should be tasting some of the chocolate or I'd have made the chocolates a half dome a very smooth surface and a dark chocolate can inside Very very different indeed this one. Yeah very dock inside and a much more pungent hit it take. It took a long time to find the right chocolates to work with the to the most because Kosta so complex for example. If you choose orange which I love chocolate and orange you instantly got. I honestly know which chocolate to put with it to get that nostalgic fail. I love chocolate orange. What this it was? Try again try again try again. It's absolutely fantastic. The opportunity to have something that is quite unusual all to work with both familiar. It's funny how I haven't had either the Vermouth to start with but the familiarity and some of the botanical in. I don't know where that's from. I'm from my many years past of tasting and eating but there is something in them and all my team who tried to. There's something in recognized but I don't know what it is. I think a lot of people might say I've I've never had vermouth on its own. I've had a Martini Shaken oster Martini or I've had it as a mix of had it in an aground. Have I had it with chocolate would would I tried it if it wasn't in the chocolate maybe not so my job and my responsibility is just to inspire people to try something different. Because that's what I've had the opportunity. It's due to create the chocolates. I think you've done very well. Thank you so much. That was really
"ashby" Discussed on Breaking the Glass Slipper: Women in science fiction, fantasy, and horror
"Anime and and Cyborg Siri and so I had done in all my reading of Henry Jenkins and Janice radway and and all those theorists about fan culture and so I had really like I came to with with what I think is was a healthy dose of respect for both you know the tradition of fan fiction and the tradition of carrying on carrying on narrative narrative for people and also understanding that in the intervening years like probably people of their own head Canon of what was happening and I would really just be adding like one story story to this that that I had the privilege of working with a a whole lot of other writers on and having the blessing of the of the the creators and having Tatyana on board and and so I I sort of thought of it thought of it that way and and tried to be you know as respectful as as as they could be. The theme of identity is incredibly strong throughout often black. And it's also touched on in your novel company town. What is it about science fiction? The Healy Sifi that expose gender alongside identity as a whole that makes such powerful and compelling explorations of the the subject. Well I think Science fiction going back to the roots of it going back to two Mary. Wollstonecraft shelley is about. You know the the the beginning of all of this. You Know Science Fiction Frankenstein is about who gets to be human being and what gets to be a human mandy and what gets to be a man and now we sort of have questions about what gender actually is and science fiction is I think the one of the ideal genres for for exploring that. I think that most fiction is about you know what it means to be human being but science fiction takes that extra extra leap and says well how what are the borders of humanity and what are the borders of the things that make us. Human gender is one of those things and so that's always been a fascination of mine and So I think that that a story like orphan black was a good way to has always been been good at sort of looking at the limitations of the human especially in a story where WH- where these clones have their you know actually have their their genome patented in-copyright if they don't have they don't actually have rights to their own bodies which is for me such a story about women in general Not Having rights to to WHO and what they are and not necessarily being recognized as as people Depending on where when you are in in history and in space and and and so in company town I I really tried to also explore that from the perspective of somebody who is the only augmented a a person on a on an oil rig. That is that is full of augmented people. She The protagonist of that novel is the only person who who doesn't have really really a whole lot of augmentation and sort of is the last baseline human on on the rig. Is that what you would be the The lost augmented human. It's I mean it's possible I would probably I. I already have certain augmentation. I already wear glasses already. Take Medication Shen there are. There are things that are already sort of you know that I already uses as prostheses right In a certain way from from sort of Donna. Heroin Cyborg Syria perspective. Those are all prosthetic devices that that alter how I behave As human being and who I am in in relationship other people So there's so there's you know. I already use certain things like that. Depending on how you WanNa read post humanity entity or augmented bodies or or what have you I think that I would be deeply skeptical of of augmentation. I mean today It was either today or yesterday. The news came out that alphabet which is Google's Sort of Larger Company the the larger company. That owns Yahoo Google and facets of Google sidewalk in and whatever And WAYMO had acquired fitbit alphabet has acquired fitbit which means that Google has fitbit which means that Google has For for a lot of people are a growing number of people access to the things that determine their access says to health insurance private health insurance within the United States and so google now has access to that data and I've never owned a fitbit for exactly the reason I knew that eventually You know fitbit data was gonNA get fed until health insurance or fed into actuarial science in some way and you know whether it was a google or Microsoft or a or a facebook or whomever One of these big stacks was gonna it Kinda by it and and or gain access to it in some way and that would not be good for the people wearing those things and so I've always steered away from things like that. I don't have a Smart Watch. I don't I don't wear fitness devices. I don't Have I don't have an in home. Personal Assistant Things like that. I've it it took me years to get a mobile phone Took me years to get a smartphone. I was way behind a lot of other people in that and and it was in part because they could kind of see where you know how would be leveraged against people and so yeah I would probably be one of those Qamrun curmudgeonly curmudgeonly People who who just didn't want to participate or who didn't who didn't see everybody else doing it as a reason to do it. I guess US I find that interesting. I mean it is probably a stereotype to assume that people who are interested in science fiction or SCI FI writers is our into tech and like into the new changing world. But said you know it's quite interesting to to hear from someone who writes Sifi but with it might not be the first adopter Mutek well. I think there's actually kind of tradition of that. I think I mean I think famously. Like William Good Sir. Uh William Gibson composed neuromancer on a typewriter He He proposed the idea of cyberspace from a from a paper in ink medium and and what he said in interviews that. He's glad that he did it that way because if he had if he had written it on a word processor it would destroy. Destroy The magic of of Imagining Cyberspace. So he wanted to be separate from the thing that he was creating in a weird way so that he could still imagine the possibilities of it. His his imagining of what was possible was not `curtains curtailed or constrained by his own personal experience of technology. Oh Gee if he had had to deal with like an incredibly clunky word processing format he might not have had the same opinions as he did as as he was writing the book and so I think that there is something to be said for kind of holding back a little bit. But there's also you know as in my other career you know a look at tech trends all the time so I look at people being early adopters and I look at the purchasing habits of early adopters and what they get out of it but what they get out of it and what I get out of of something very different You know I'm I'm not into constant subscription services for example sample like I I don't you know I don't even get my nails done regularly so the idea that I would be subscribing to to to access you you know to attack thing is even like a whole other bridge to to cross nails I. I caught my nations because I played the piano. Yeah so the nail thing was never going to happen. No like the idea like will you can spend X. amount of dollars for this APP that gets you thus insurgents insurgents like well. You know I don't even do. There are so many things that I just opt out of naturally like. I think it's also just introversion right. It's also just as a species of of introversion but also I mean so In terms of like not having certain things like one I think my dad was. We're always sort of held back on things. We had a Betamax. DCR FOR LOW. You know into the time the DVD's were coming out. We didn't get a DVD player until my dad one one at a work party and And even then it was like we sort of had to crossover But the other thing is that he his job job was he was a sales rep for For companies like Sony Panasonic and others that made closer television surveillance equipment so our house was full of dummy surveillance equipment or or surveillance equipment that wasn't in use and so I had a real a close view of how that technology worked and what the trends were in that technology. And what the what the the what what that people were looking for out of it. And so when I hear about stuff like a Google homer or an echo or a an Alexa whatever you know whatever it is this month or whatever it is this season you know my immediate thought is. Oh Okay so so a thing listening device planted and planted squarely in your your home that you rely on increasingly for for your day to day life a thing that can knock on you. What a great idea? So so I call on this podcast to talk a lot about cliches stereotypes about all like most of the trips that we find most annoying. So do you have any. I mean I was going to say like since we're on the subject of identity An APP particularly kind of like talking about surveillance and people's People's Images online do you have any Like really pet peeves about trump's the continually really crop up in sci-fi that you'd like to see retired well one thing that we talked about We had a long conversation about this In the orphan black back sort of pseudo writer's room in our group chat Was the idea that Government surveillance works perfectly and looks it's really shiny and new and smooth and beautiful You know if you watch your average like CBS cop show or your the average Sort of science fiction movie about the NSA or or or you know a thing with the FBI or or whatever or if you look at something like like minority report or or what. Have you the idea you know. Or if you look at like agents of shield or something like there. There's a science fictional idea that that government technology -nology is easy to use worked perfectly and is beautiful and that is not the case The the deep missile scare that happened in Hawaii for example where where the people of Roy thought that they were the victims of a nuclear attack because of a false alarm that went out. That false alarm mhm went out because the interface that was used during the the drill. It is so old and so- Janke so decrepit and so So basic sick that it was an easy mistake to make from the interface design perspective from the from the user interface perspective and that is the case more often often than not with government systems. I think that people don't understand that all of those. You know technologies go out to tender. They go out for PS and and the winning. RFP's the thing that promises the most for the least money you know and and that's what budget cuts do and that's for all governments that's not the US that's not Canada. That's it's not Britain. It's not Australia. It's it's not China it's it's everywhere and and it's the same in corporate life and actually so this idea that lake that that a that a system that you would be working with Would work perfectly one hundred percent of the time and be smooth and easy to use and also also gorgeous is is ally in. It's one of the things that I really wish we'd get retired or I really wish that the opposite would get experimented with as a as as a fictional trope because it so it's the the opposite is so much more the case and has a lot more storytelling potential. As far as I'm concerned one. That always gets me is the whole zooming in on images and you're like Kay zoom in its old pixelated but then somehow yo computer you too magically just makes it super hi Rez. Yeah from not having those pixels already it just makes it up like how does that work. Well what's funny. Is that like enhance hance. That sort of like you know. The the the the blade runner enhanced function Is something that you know is something I've I've heard lots of people who work in in audiovisual technology is sort of rail against for a very long time. And what's funny is that there are Developers working hang on in photo enhancing technologies now that want to make that real but they need. They're using machine learning to do it and it's really really about a machine. A machine learning algorithm predicting. What else is in the photo based on other information and and it's not about like what the camera actually saw? It's what is predictable based on the other context clues in the image and and and it's it's almost sort of like looking into the dream of what the image is not necessarily. What's actually there? Yeah so a lot of questions about whether or not that would be admissible evidence reliable reliable in any in any way shape or form. Yeah Yeah I mean the other thing for me is a lot of things about machine learning coming and algorithms and all. This kind of thing is that a lot of sci-fi doesn't look at the fact that your data is only as good as what you put in right and you know a lot of these studies going about how if you put racist information into the Algorithm. What you'RE GONNA get out is like racist behavior of the machines and that's something? I don't really think I've seen much offense I fi- which I think would be a nice thing to explore he. I think that I think Angelov. More people are becoming aware of that fact that sort of garbage in garbage out counts for for these systems as well and we had this sort of vision and I was one of these people. I believe that the technology could in theory be neutral and and and then every study proved me wrong like every study sort of proved that that idea wrong that like the the biases of the Creator are replicated in the creation. And that's something that. Has You know that science fiction. Only we've talked about a lot in terms of a story like Frankenstein story about creating artificial intelligence that what we create you know we..
Large Sums of Money That Maybe Transfered in the Fashion World
"On the line this is news that developed over the weekend. Lvmh if it goes through it'll probably be the biggest purchase ever by Lvmh to meet a total of fourteen point four billion dollars the US companies to get it LVMH has risen forty-nine percent giving it a value `tatoes compared to LVMH with its two hundred fifteen billion dollars I can't even imagine that number the show the brand has been around for one hundred eighty two years and it's not sixty dollars a share in two thousand sixteen it's Ben up at around one hundred dollars for the past biggest place for revenue as a conglomerate the US's second and pals so adding tiffany would give Lvmh more has lvmh had any failures no girl they haven't they can't might be a good move for Tiffany I think it would be a great move for Tiffany I I don't know if the impact is going to be there at such a great level it really stabilizes and helps them grow even more they've been struggling for a number of reasons they can't I'm trying to cater towards a younger audience but they haven't found their stride yet and they when you're trying to catch up with your ideal demographic like that takes some time right so do it on your own and say you did it on your own or do you want like the big brother to come in and like and even like for an art arnall cases full of money for like three other people do it just suitcases full of money they should take the deal they should take the deal we'll see we'll update you potting soil with like some of the Peat Moss in it is that what you mean right Oh yeah absolutely signed forever twenty one and things are starting to come out as more paperwork it's coming John and Jin Suk Chang they have two daughters they emigrated ended up coming back and working for the company there's Linda she was the executive vice president and in annual sales and employed forty three thousand people globally they're like actual old people I don't know elderly I don't know their lives slur management style as a significant reason the entire business collapsed give them a reality check in their headquarters in Los Angeles that top and just to give you an encapsulation of what what the problem could have it's micromanaging not seeing the big picture also it turns they had a lot of power over styles that landed in stores the home and do advising because they knew early on more than they let on that something stuff into consideration and implement it so it was just like their way man come in and be directors who had no retail experience so what they were doing this is very theranos what they were doing was like only giving it sounds awful no one knew the totality of what was going on with the business department stores. I didn't know this took over a lot of space that used to belong to borders he says we're not set to expire until twenty twenty seven and twenty twenty eight understand local labor laws. This is the big like money news that we found out stores per month girl so that's why it collapsed that's what happened expressed this Mr Chang you need to delegate Sir that is a Mr Chang the other thing is that this report any retailer not as the Chang's but it does take a little same time right it's losing steam and is losing popularity outlasting from perfectly one or they've heard about it from a friend and sell it it's very it's not that simple and so it's not just as easy as forever. I don't like you said it's not just about this narrative of fast fashion kind of slowly really implemented it became their scope would have been different their stores would have business what the family says goes and if you are not the top nobody could not sign expense reports fast enough kinds of fast no one's a delegate it so important helps you succeed because you know my one really clunky basketball analogy they voted unanimously on Tuesday the day we are recording this podcast to three separate divisions of the ANC AA and so they've all been tasked with figuring going to be the board is going to vote on those proposed change rules athletes I have a lot of restrictions around what they can and cannot do around the world When it comes to college sports those players who play for those big have a lot of our school expenses paid for by scholarships but they are duties are to time you have schools that are selling merchandise that may have for a t-shirt you might be able to find a college athlete who was here and says that per NCWA rules so this could potentially open Aa like just like snap his fingers and Saddle we're GonNa Change this so that it would no longer be illegal for students to earn money from their appearances punishing their athletes if they get endorsement money in that will start in January twenty sourced NC double a. into letting all student athletes southern names their images and their were passed in early twenty twenty it would go into effect in twenty twenty one and which is his way of saying out trust y'all yeah but how much play that pro athlete? Scott I've been watching the world series and Ashby and what they do on the field it's a lot about personality in this physical and so many pro athletes even after their off the field college sports a lot more sustainable for the student athletes that you have time for it but like the fact that you can't make any income while you're right apply the decision. I mean at the very least I think you should own the rights to your own ms how if people decide to delay going professional so that's really interesting to me Oh delaying going pro is such has a lot of potential to be a good athlete right now like I think a lot in four years or three years and and who knows what's going to happen to my career then to go pro and see what items come out I wanna see that fashion for that Shit I will buy all the stuff from the Maryland basketball team endorsements for whatever other sports news I dig up and shove into this show you inject oh it is your favorite subject within the song girl Yeah Apor so many things just ran through my head in the first thing I thought of was alligator baby alligators Milano orders a lot from Sephora and the past year she spent over five thousand ah find a dollar bill and it's folded really really well and then there's a straw aw there wasn't I will continue of a Sephora worker in the package and originated issued an apology one hundred dollars an online credit and she and and that Sephora has zero tolerance policy around illegal inside that box I can think of is that now former wjr like them having their ide- and that stuff shipped out okay so that was my first thought was that somebody got fed up or drop weekly I think it is a possibility and is a little convenient act also like who drops cocaine that's why I don't buy questions about the the state of the coq sounds like Sephora emailed her back yes if you worked at Sephora not give me an apology that's one thing I actually wish I would have gotten but she was like it's okay comment but like a personal touch would be really nice in this situation but orange objects or just on your teeth to see to see swish wine and then spit it don't you don't spit after you rub the coke on your yeah I've seen on TV up until this point lies Somali Yep one last story Swatch isn't going to renew their license with Calvin Klein so their parent company is called Swatch group they decided not to make watches or jewelry under Kwan's they are going to renew the collaborations because of uncertainty they are ending this program so what I'm interested in the story is not then tell us you know maybe that the deal was just they've just yeah we talked about this probably about six months ago like a lot a lot of turmoil.

How Canadas Anti-Abortion Movement Recruits Young People
"There are lots of myths, and lies and assumptions at their regarding abortions, especially these days, especially in the United States, where things are not going great right now for those who believe and a woman's right to choose what she does with her own body. The dominoes keep falling in the Bush to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Ohio governor signing today would critics condemn as the most restrictive abortion law in the country today. Missouri became the latest state to pass one of the order now becomes the third state since March to sign your loan, thirteen other states have introduced or advanced similar legislation to Alabama the lead. Est battleground in the newly energized abortion. But there is one myth in particular, that we need to talk about. And it's not about the medical procedure or who gets them or when or why it's about the people who oppose access to abortion. And this myth concerns, Canadians to it's very easy to look at the old white faces of the men in power in America who are imposing restrictive state laws and viewed them as the face of the anti-abortion movement. And that's fair. But it is not the whole story. And what you think you know about who exactly is out there in front of clinics or at their marches for life is probably wrong. So if you're a person who believes in the right to choose. And in the progress that has been made on that front over the decades, then it's important for you to take a really hard look at who is pushing the anti-choice agenda, and where they're doing their recruiting. I'm Jordan Rawlings. And this is the big story, Sydney Loni is a freelance journalist, she investigated the anti-abortion movement in Canada for flare dot com. Hi, said, hi, let's start with general question, how supportive are we of rate to choice in Canada? I always thought we were very supportive in this sort of non-issue. There was a poll in two thousand seventeen that found seventy seven percent of Canadians support pro choice, and that's a pretty good number. I thought it was on a low side. And if you compared to other countries like, France, it's actually eighty six in Sweden's eighty seven percent and support. So we're, we're still and we have a little ways to go. What is the typical image of the pro-life abortion activists anti-abortion activists in Canada? Gentleness conception out there that sort of, you know, angry white men yelling at side, abortion clinics. And when I did this piece, and I spoke to many anti-abortion. Vists. That's what they said that they wanted to sort of dispel, that myth at. That's what they are. And but I think that it's sort of persistent. We think that sort of a small fringe group. I know you know, when I was in university. It'd be the handful of people walk by maybe five or six people with signs you kinda give them wide berth, because there is sort of seen as these kind of weird outliers. And I don't think that that's the case anymore. What's changing, I think the biggest thing surprised me the most too, is just sort of the, the size of the movement now and the youth of the movement. It's, it's not it's, it's young educated women women university. Many of them when Wednesday spoke to many of the women, I spoke to are pursuing careers in healthcare, and that also surprised me, but these are sort of young articulate s- university, educated women. How do they come by these views because that does seem really in congress to me? Yeah. And that's a good question. I think one of the women, I spoke to some of it is based on religion. They've been brought up with these views and they say that their family is also PR. Prolife, but many, you know, in highschool, they've sort of set of tapped into this, and it sort of resonated with them. Many women, I spoke to said that they saw as being cool movement whereas really years ago. Yeah. Years ago, you know, the said that being pro pro choice was sort of the default everyone, you know, their grandparents are now pro-choice, and they see this sort of rebellious the new rebellion movement and whereas before it was cool to be pro choice. Now, they say it's cool to be pro life that seems so strange to, to be honest. Handle telegraphing my head around that one as well. But yeah, I think a lot of us who are pro choice or just in general progressive people. They see you, as the future of their movement. Right. Outta your member after the shooting and park land, Florida last year. There was this whole movement from these teens and the, the message around them from adults was youth. They're going to save us. Right. And, and it seems like you know, we see young kids fighting climate change and speaking out against racism, and I feel like abortion, just gets lumped in there, too. And maybe it shouldn't. Yeah, I, I think maybe I think maybe we've become complacent about it. I mean I certainly had no idea how big this movement was earlier in may that the March for life, which I'd never actually even wasn't really on my radar took place. And that sort of where I interviewed on these women who are preparing to go the March, and they're excited about the March when young woman, I interviewed was hosting a gala at in Victoria, the university after the March. So it's like a big it's a big cool party and the March started in nineteen ninety eight and were. Seven hundred participants in this last year, they were fifteen thousand and that's only an Ottawa. So the marches all over your city across the country, and it just shows the size of the growing Amenam of this movement. Tell me about a couple of the young women, you've met, if there are any who stand, particularly to you, and what they're like. Yeah. I think one woman in particular, she's she's eighteen eighteen and she was her first March. And she was just like a kid going on a trip. She was really excited about it. It was her first she's, she just graduated from high school. Her family is she told me was also antiabortion, but she was excited to be other people, our age who share those views, and she wanted to be part of the movement, and wanted to possibly in the future, maybe intern at some of these organizations. And that's the other thing is a lot of these groups have interns, who start very young and use of Ashby, where these people are coming from. They start out, you know, they were being recruited in high school to, to come into the offices and work there. And then they end up also out on the streets holding the signs. And the things that we do. See that was actually my next question is, is this, a conscious effort by anti-abortion organizations to get younger? I would say so definitely and even the place to everyone, who I talked to said that they had I'm been exposed to these ideas in high school and in some schools, one of the women, I didn't end up talking to her article, had followed her, and we had talked a little bit, but she actually goes into high schools and does talks about, you know, the antiabortion movement. And so there's that aspect as well. What are pro choice organizations doing to try to? They must see the tide turning than I, I don't know, if the thought that the right metaphor being possibly one woman, I spoke to was very concerned in and she had no when she found out, she wasn't an activist didn't think of his office when before the March for life. But then this was the first year that there was one in Toronto as well. And that kind of freaked her out a bit. And so she organized a counter protest in got on Facebook and got all these people involved to come out of warn people was happening part of it, and also to sort of. Have a have a voice for the other side for the pro choice side, and another woman in Berta longtime activists said that. Yes, there is momentum and that the people who are active in the movement are doing whatever they can about it. But the society is a whole has become a little bit on the complacence. I we don't really haven't really isn't on our radar, and we look so th and think, oh, that could never happen here. And I think the concern is, you know, if it can happen there, I can happen anywhere and you we have some very vocal pro-life politicians who've been elected, and people are electing them despite having them holding these views. So that is an issue. We did a podcast last week about Sam who Stor off who's, obviously interesting not female, but very young. And very vocally anti-abortion, and when we talk about this stuff, even people who are critics of him say, they would never actually change the law. Stephen Harper didn't change the laws. Andrew Scheer has no plans to change the laws. Right. So there is. It's not necessarily complacency. But there just seems to be a thought that this is a done deal. Right. I think that's maybe dangerous thought I think that the anti-abortion people spoke to said that their goal was to, to support pro life politicians into get into show them that they have a huge movement behind them, but there's also this sort of more insidious things terms of, you know, our, our side in tarot back to the nineties, and we're taking steps back everywhere else in related ways. And just how hard it is for women to access abortion in Canada. I think people don't necessarily realize that I mean, you've only been only got one MP is nineteen thousand seventeen and in other provinces. Well, it's not it's not easy there. It's hard to find clinics to find train doctors long wait times. So it's a lot of barriers that,
Bill Hader on Barry | Interview
"Double sized episode of the big picture. This is a conversation show with filmmakers, and we're talking to a few of them today. The first of which you may have heard of his name is Bill hater he is. Of course, the creator the writer producer, and sometime director of a little show called Barry show on HBO that we love here at the wringer. I talked to Bill about making Barry, but more specifically just about movies because men this guy knows a lot about film, and he's really fun to talk to you. He put me on to a bunch of movies. I think if you're interested in the wider world of movies in the history of the medium, you'll enjoy this chat. And then right after that, we're going to have another interview with two people. I really admire the actress Mary Kay place who you may recall from things like the big chill. She was an EMMY winner in the seventies. She's been steadily working as an actress for the last forty years and the critic turned filmmaker and documentarian Ken Jones. Kent's first film as a narrative film maker is called Diane and Mary Kay. The star of that movie, and it's a really beautiful intimate complex portrait of a person nearing the end of their life. And how things change around them as they approach that stage. So please stick around after Bill to listen to that one. But before that, let's go right to Bill Hader. Joined by actor writer, director producer all kinds of stuff ill hater, hey, buddy. How are you? I'm doing good. So bill. This is a show where we talk about movies, and you made a TV show, but you are like the all-time movie buff. Yeah. And so I wanna talk about berry as kind of a filmmaking property. What do you think? Yeah. It'd be great now. Most people kind of friends who were like, it's kinda just, you know, a four hour movie that we've broken up into eight is that how you can send it as like. Well, the way we write it. I had never written in a in a traditional TD writing room writer's room before the only one had really been in outside of Santa live of south park. And finally kind of knew what those guys did. And it was kind of like their their shows have, you know, a three acts, and so you were kind kinda just it was never really written in order. It was kind of. We know this needs to happen. Then at some point this happens, and then towards the end, maybe this happens, and then you're kind of finding scenes at connect these things, and then it all starts changing. So I kind of did that. But with with eight episodes, I would just put one two to four one through eight up on the bore whiteboard. I would just start plotting, and you know, season one it was like, okay. So, you know, end of episode to be really good. If you know, they had this thing for rhyme Addison embarrassed starting to realize, you know, e- seizes father speak in rhyme. Adam's, father speaking, he realizes. Oh, gosh. You know, he didn't you've never seen that side of it before, you know. And then maybe it's good if you know Vaujour's following them that'd be good. You know in the in the, you know, the the way call it his his friends from Chris in those guys military guys they come in around episode. Owed four or five. So question Mark, you know, more friends years, your puzzle PC, and you're just kind of laying it out, but you laid out as a full things. So, you know, by eight it's like, I just know eight forever just had moss versus berry at the end. And we had no idea where that took place or what happened. But I I've felt and we all kind of felt like they should have she should figure it out. You know? So we knew that was at the end of eight at the end of the last episode, but we didn't know how that would happen is that more similar to the way you'd read a movie, I mean, I don't know. I I mean, I everyone has a different way of doing it some people the idea out of outlining is for bowdoin in people. I think because screen play unlike a novel novel can be as long as you want screenplay should be about under twenty pages. And when you're structuring a story for film or. Television. There has to be like structure to it. You know, now that doesn't mean in asked to be kind of like what we do or you know, that kind of Billy wilder thing. Or I, you know, where it was every everything is set a payoff, everything is super clean, and you know, that what by I love that. It's really hard to pull off in. That's why I enjoy that kind of writing. But you know, I mean, I mean, some of the best movies of Hollywood specially in the seventies were really during didn't know where it was going, but they have a structure there. You know, be too great how Ashby movies being there and last detail fron tense purposely last details just kind of a a road movie quest movie quest movie in about these two guys finding their humanity in in and trying to show this guy a good time before he goes to jail in. Kind of forgetting their jobs is in what they've learned military men and all this and an in kind of shedding their the humanity that they have to repress when I put the uniform on and all that, and it's all very emotional. But when you look at it, it's got a really great structure, you know, has a really tight structure now, I don't know if Robert towne took that book, and you know, outlined it in figured it out. But if feels that way, and so sometimes the first draft is like an outline you're kinda like you're writing I've done it both ways we write a draft to something with no outline in it. It's got a lot inspired stuff in it. But it's kind of cranky, you know. Yeah. So then you kind of go over it you show it to a friend in the gonna will head of it there. You know, this would go here what you know in the new you'd try to because you want it to feel kinda we're Ganic. But when you're doing TD showing you got thirty minutes. It's it's kinda hard to do that. Because you have to keep a tight inside frame. It really tight. Yeah. And I'm also just someone I don't like wasting people's time. And so when we got the TV show actually went back and watch TV. But I would I would read short stories was really good. I would want.

"That is one of the the most, the strongest in like most distinctive debut features from from that period. You mentioned that he was an editor for a lot of years really could have made that his his bread and butter heavy, not gun into directing. And I'm curious, you mentioned Bob Jones. What was it like to be an editor for Hal Ashby? Bob was his own. Like as an editor was a was a diff-. I mean, you know, Ashby had worked with other people previously as editors Jones cut the last detail he took over from somebody else. On that film where. Which had been going that well in post and and the, the cruelty that Bob has has was he was just he was really fast, but also just brilliant. And I think that he was the first person that that Ashby truly trusted as an editor so that he could kinda step back. But because if you look at both the landlord and a how to Maud, those are two films that that Ashby was very, very involved as director editor. He's credited on either film, you know, but they're both very consciously edited films there. There's there's a lot of cuts. They're the editing you might say is stylized. Whereas in the last detail, it's it doesn't sort of telegraph it. So it's not so consciously edited at, I think it was something where he could relax a little bit on the phone feels more relaxed. Bob Jones Cutler filming, kind of intuitively, whereas through, it's a ton of very conscious that is in. In the landlord and and held a Morton in terms of the way that scenes are intercut, where they go from one to another. There's those jokes, there's interplay between this scenes and sequences in the last detail, it's just is a sort of flows a lot more and feels like more of a natural narrative progression end that was the star of Ashby being able to be a less physical presence in in be in the editing room. He would go off and do other things and in a way his, some of the difficulties that he had in in the eighties was when Jones woods had had become a writer and and he had edges, he could depend on less in the editing room and he, he had to become more involved in that and and you know he was trying to at that time he was trying to give. Sorry, he's trying to give young editors a break and was sort of handing over the reins to people who had a lot of potential, but not necessarily a lot of experience and. His films suffered as a result of that, he would try always take things on himself, but he was dealing with the law projects, and you know, sometimes the material was with this note that great to start with, you know, the, you have a foam way look into get out, which I, I'm, I'm a big champion of the ritual released version of that foam is was kinda compromise. It was they had fifteen minutes chopped out of it against Ashby's wishes, but the the, the, the Ashby of that which which released on DVD like nine years ago, I think that really is as a special film, but his films, you know, when when people weren't cutting them appropriately in evidently did suffer. Great. A great deal. I was also curious about eight million ways to die. Did that ever get a release where it was more close to his vision? It didn't, unfortunately for the reason the that it was taken away from him before he, he caught a frame of it. He had a very clear sense of what he was going to do. But as soon as production. Ended on that. That film he was he was relieved of his duties, and so you know, it's, I think it's a film where you see flashes here and there of his work, but it's it. It's so integral to turn Ashby film that he is in some way, a presence in the editing room, but that his intentions are are manifest onscreen. Whereas, you know, the, the music was different..

"So Amy, Scott talked about how much it helped hap to have editing experience. If you're going to be directing a film that's largely made of archival material like this one, which totally makes sense at any rate, if you're fan of Ashby or curious about the social and political climate around filmmaking in the seventies America, definitely check it out.

"What I would have liked to see is some additional thoughtfulness around what are the implications if we proceed with this policy, the idea that you wanna have a policy that respects, the sanctity of our border, I think is important, but that has implications. And one of those implications is what you do when people come across as an entire family had additional. Thought and effort been put into this question of how do we deal with the children, vis-a-vis the parents and look. Maybe there was thought given to this. I'm not on the inside on this issue, so I don't know. But my sense is that there was a little bit of catch-up going on, and that's unfortunate because it did tarnish the policy and it made it much more difficult to make articulate argument for why one might wanna zero tolerance policy might be important to say, look, our border is our border and we're going to enforce it regardless of of the circumstance. So I do think that this is one area where the administration probably could have used a little bit more time and energy on the thought about what the second and third order consequences worth of policy. And I think sometimes focusing on the policy forget just the impact on the people. I mean, it's been a humanitarian problem for thousands of people and the trauma that might follow these kids for years, and let's not forget that the notion of there being difficulty around separations at the border. This predates this administration. There have been other administered. Nations where there have been crises of the border. Now they've handled it differently. It's been for different reasons that the crisis was created, but the border and immigration issues continued to perplex policymakers. We cannot seem to arrive at a permanent good fix for immigration system. I think it's a shame we spoke recently for my story on h. successes policy shop known as Ashby. The assistant secretary for planning and evaluation on the story was about some reports that have come out recently from the Trump administration Ashby that have been questionable projecting positive benefits from rolling back the reports that got killed because they would have been undermining the Trump administration policies in different way. You gave me some context on on Espy is a former person saying, quote, I don't believe the Trump administration Espy has put out reports that are a less analytically or methodologically rigorous than those of the Obama administration Ashby. And you also clarified that you don't look to ask me as an. Independent source for analysis, saying, quote, that's why we have studies from academics and analysts outside of government. So looking at your HHS, should we have trusted the reports that the George W Bush administration Ashby published? I think you have to put all of these reports in context, whether it's reports from Ashby from within government reports from the outside. Frankly, the role of Ashby is to promote the administration's health policy agenda. Now, obviously, you want it done in a sincere and thoughtful and yes, analytically accurate way. I don't believe that there has been anything. This administration has put out that does not meet those criteria that having been said, I think they've got an agenda. Absolutely. I think the Obama administration asked me had an agenda. The Bush administration asked me had an agenda and anybody who sees Ashby for anything more than that. A little naive because the role of that office is fundamentally to promote the president's policies. And I think if you see it as a neutral arbiter of whether a policy is good or bad, you're probably looking to the wrong place. So I think there is a role for people on the outside to be critical of what the administration is saying. And so far I think there has been criticism in spades of this administration. So I don't think there's a lack of perspective. I just think that people who say that they disagree with the methodology or disagree with the framing of reports coming out this administration, probably more disagree with the findings then with anything else. So I, I would just be realistic about what to expect from offices like Ashby about a year ago. Abbe put out analysis of the consumer freedom amendment, the Ted Cruz back rule that was going to create to risk pools and it was very positive on the impact of that on the market..

"Top priority in HHS is certainly feeling pressure to show that they're making progress. It's hard to think of President Trump being fixated. I've never heard him be fixated on shoe before and bring it up over in this states back to even before as our was confirmed as even before you know, in those meetings, he would say, you know, I, I think you're great. These the issues we're talking about and it would always go back to, well, what can we do on pricing and how fast I, I went back and watched the swearing in it came up than than to that was one of the first things Trump said beyond the policies as are also has continued to remake the personnel had success. Sure. And there are a couple kind of overarching ideas that he's he's had in putting people. Onto place. One is you want private sector people. He doesn't want people from the hill. He wants people who have experienced in a real world who have the knowledge in the context to when they come into the agency. Really the way he puts his know where the money is to really be able to go after the parts of the industries that that can change in that can you know, kind of effect, structural change. And I think by and large, he's got everybody in place on, you know, on top upper levels, but there's still parts of the agencies where there are a lot of holes and you wrote you wrote a story about essentially HHS policy shop, and it's been a little chaotic in part because they don't have a permanent leader. And in fact that permanently I remember has been out there for, you know, waiting on his confirmation for more than a year. At this point you're you're talking about Ashby. The story that I had this week. So Abby, the assistant secretary for planning and evaluation. That's the brain Bank for itchy Chester. One hundred twenty people in this shop. When Alex azar says, I want to do something big on drug pricing. There are teams in Ashby who then try and substantiate that and come up with the policies that as our could then roll out and their other teams around the agency to, but Ashby's sort of the central brain nervous system for HHS what my story got into with some of the political meddling in Ashby over the past year where Trump. Administration politically appointed. People were either killing reports that were critical of of Trump priorities, like allowing refugees to come in to shifting the findings to make them more palatable to the Trump administration's goals like rolling back the now. Every Ashby has been politically influenced in some way. Obama has to be was the Jewish W Bush one was, but the bigger question is, has the Trump administration gone farther in shaping the evidence and data coming out of divisions like the policy shelter and this gets out a attention. I think that is going to be something to watch the next six months is you have an HHS with Alex as are very structured, very into planning, very into keeping everybody on message doing things the right way. And then you have a White House that often does not do those things. They have a very different philosophy. That's a lot more chaotic a lot more ad hoc. Yeah, the president wakes up. He says, he says, I want this done. And and everybody else is off just working on that. And so I think the SP SP is great example where there's a tension between doing things right, doing you know the research doing the policy and this urge to show results to get things done no matter what. And that is that tension between, you know, a more traditional HHS leadership and a definitively nontraditional. White House leadership is something that's, that's definitely out there watch and something that we've seen come up at times when HHS pursues one policy that might seem at odds with the White House.
