Why Is the Trans Issue So Critical?
"96. Biden assistant secretary Levine says gender affirming care is here to stay and the Biden regime will use force their popularity how many popularity. Whatever support that they have, but power to make sure that an 8 year old can chemically mutilate themselves, play cut 96. As we look to all the different elections in 2024, I think the next two years are going to be challenging, but I am positive and optimistic and hopeful that the wheel will turn after that. And that this issue won't be as politically and socially such a minefield. In the meantime, I can say that the children that you serve, and the young people that you serve, their families, and you all say providers have supported the highest levels of the federal government. President Biden supports you. And he is articulated that support with the children and families believes it will be normalized. The regime is saying that this type of care, which is medieval at best. Is going to have the top levels of support. This is the new fight, most Republicans don't have the stomach for this. You guys get a better get ready. This is as big as it gets. This is the fight for our kids, the fight for decency, the fight to contain the social contagion. It's a fight for our civilization. And you know, some Republicans say, oh, Charlie, come on, the trans thing is a distraction. No, you're a distraction. The trans thing involves so many fundamental building blocks, language, freedom of discourse, biological reality, commitment to the truth, men and women, distinctions, differences, it all of them kind of find its way into the trans issue. What is a child? Should children's innocence be protected? Sexual predators targeting our young women, the trans thing is not just about live and let live. That is a weak one liner

So what was your position inside the U.S. government, Mike? Sure. So I was the cyber das, which is deputy deputy assistant secretary for international communications and information technology, which is a long way of saying I ran the big tech portfolio. At the end of 2020, during a period of intense consolidation of big tech and big government, we're really the main adversarial party was the free speech rights of U.S. citizens. And so I saw from inside how big government and big tech were really wrapped into one sort of interest group, one sort of lobby group for their own sort of proprietary pecuniary interest where there was really no lobby for the American people, especially to be able to speak freely online.

Monica Crowley Weighs in on the Trump-DeSantis Skirmish
"I'm back with our friend Monica Crowley. She's a prominent media personality former assistant Secretary of the Treasury under Trump, also a host of the Monica Crowley podcast. You can follow her by the way on Twitter at Monica Crowley. Monica, the last segment you were talking about Trump and how he has been the focus of not only the CCP, but also the left. They seem more terrified of him than of anyone else. Now, recently, we're seeing this kind of strange skirmish, a little bit involving Trump, but also between the sort of the trumpsters and the desantis guys and their going after each other, and sometimes it gets a little bit mean spirited. I want to ask you, what do you make of all this? Do you think desantis has already in the ring? Or because I've always taken the view that, look, each of them actually brings a lot to the table. I'm actually disappointed to see this scar missing. It would be better. I think we would be stronger if there would be some kind of an alliance is that a, is that a fanciful expectation? What's your take on what's going on here? It's early I know where a ways from 2024. But what's your take? Well, welcome to politics, dinesh. It is a blood sport and especially if you've got Donald J Trump running for the Republican nomination again. Of course it's going to be a blood sport. Donald Trump basically has one speed dinesh and that's attack. Look, right. We will probably have a pretty wide field of extraordinary Republican candidates who are going to seek the Republican nomination this time. And it's always beneficial when the Republicans have this great embarrassment of riches with really talented, smart, accomplished people running because it just improves the overall dialog and conversation and voters can hear real debates on the issues and see the personalities involved. But I do think when it comes down to it dinesh, there's Donald Trump and then everybody else. And then secondarily, there's Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis and everybody else.

"Guys, I'm really delighted to welcome to the podcast a friend. Monica Crowley. She's a prominent media personality. She was assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Trump administration with Donald Trump, and she is host of the Monica Crowley podcast. Monica, it's a pleasure. We W and I tend to run into you at various events and conferences. I'm really thrilled to have you on the podcast. Let's begin by talking about something that's in just popped into the news coming out of The Wall Street Journal that the U.S. energy department now thinks they're not sure about it, but they think that COVID-19 came out of a lab. In other words, was made in the lab and came out of a lab and I just think to myself, you know, for three years, you people have been demonizing citizens who said this, going after scientists, deplatforming that what do you make of this latest twist? In an ongoing story about this pandemic. First of all, dinesh, thank you so much for having me. You and I are longtime friends, and it's such an honor and a joy to join you today. So thank you so much. Look, to answer your question, it really is the biggest question of them all right now because of what the world was plunged into for three years, starting in late 2019. Anybody with a brain or a common sense knew for the last three years that obviously this virus was a bioweapon. And the questions then emerged about its origins. And we were told nonstop a pack of lies, which continued to this day about the origins of this bioweapon. I think one of the main reasons why we still hear the lies coming from Democrats, the Biden regime, and so on. And the Democrats for the last several years have stopped any investigations into the origins of COVID-19

Former Levi's Top Executive Jennifer Sey on Her Derailed Career
"Jennifer, welcome to the podcast. Great to have you. Here's an article about you, a prominent article in The New York Times. She was a candidate to lead Levi's. Then she started tweeting. It sounds like tweeting proof to be your downfall. Talk about, well, let's start by talking about your career at Levi's. Was it a happy career? Did it? Did it just sort of take a sharp turn? Talk a little bit about that. Men will come to what happened to you. Yeah, it did take a pretty sharp turn in March 2020. I started at the company in 1999 as an entry level marketing assistant. I worked hard and rose through the ranks and became the chief marketing officer in 2013, held that job for 8 years, which is a really long time to hold that post and be successful in it. Helped lead the brand back from near brink of bankruptcy, honestly in 2011. I loved the company. I loved the brand. I had worn it since I was a small child. You know, I loved it there. I built a strong team and friends and I felt very much a part of the culture. And excelled there. And in 2020, in the fall, I was promoted to brand president. So I oversaw all the product development, all the genes, people wear, the store design, all of it, as well as the marketing at that point. But just a few months before that, in March of 2020, I was very outspoken about school closures and restrictions to children. And so yes, I tweeted about it, but I also wrote op eds and appeared on news shows, and eventually after a two year conflict, I was told I needed to resign because I was a reputational risk to the company that wasn't true. Our brand was doing great recovering from COVID. But essentially, you know, they didn't like what I said. I challenged a deep pillar apparently of the Democratic Party platform, right? Stay closed until zero COVID. And so I was too dangerous to have around.

"Now with Savannah Hernandez, she has the most viral content right now regarding anything political east Palestinian you name it because she decided to go ask Buddha judge questions and the press secretary did not like that at all. Savannah, welcome to the program and Savannah is with our turning point USA frontlines project and you guys can check out Savannah's social media. I'll get all the handles here. Savannah, I never thought it would be so hard to get questions from a press secretary. Tell us about it. Yeah, Charlie. So of course we know that Pete Buttigieg decided to come to east Palestine almost three weeks post train derailment. We had former president Donald Trump here yesterday. We were here talking to him. And a lot of people were already criticizing Buttigieg because they asked the question, why did it take president Trump getting here for you to come? So, you know, there was already a lot of around this trip and I simply asked him as well. What he planned to do to help the residents of east Palestinian. If you had an apology for them because of the fact that they've been left in the dark, the fact that they have had no federal assistance, okay? I mean, actually, I don't want to be fake news here, Charlie. They do have fema teams here, but for the mayor, they just came this past weekend. So again, that federal assistant came very slowly. So I wanted to ask Pete Buttigieg about that. Of course, he walked away, and then his press secretary told me that I was being aggressive for trying to ask questions. Regarding, you know, transparency around this entire crisis that's happened here.

Sebastian Sits Down With Former Elite Gymnast Jennifer Sey
"Say, welcome back to America first. Thanks for having me. Happy to be here. All right, so let's talk a little bit about you first. Because you have this amazing athletic career, but you also have this life in corporate America. So explain to us those two lives, how they melded and how you ended up at the top of one of the most famous companies in the world. Yeah, absolutely. I had an unusual childhood. I was an elite gymnast. As you mentioned, I was I made my first national team at ten years old and was on the national team until I was 18. One, the title of national champion in 1986. I suffered a lot of terrible injuries, a broken femur, femur, too broken ankles. I trained on broken bones. And ultimately, I left the sport despite my successes feeling fairly broken and ashamed. It's a very cruel and abusive coaching culture. And ultimately, 20 years after I left the sport, I continued to suffer from that night. And that's why I wrote the book. It was a memoir and it was really just my personal story, but it was reflective of the broader coaching culture. And I will tell you, it was not well received by the Olympic movement in the gymnastics community at the time. They were not ready for what I had to say, and I was smeared for the first time as a grifter and a liar, but ultimately was redeemed in 20 2018 when Larry Nassar went to prison for life. And for those that don't know, he was the team doctor for Team USA, gymnastics for over 30 years and sexually abused hundreds and hundreds of young athletes. And it was known by the powers that be in the sport, and they brushed it under the rug. They sacrificed children. So ultimately I was redeemed and folks came to my side to say they had agreed with me all along, which was a lie, but you know, I welcome them to the fight. But I started working at Levi's in 1999. I spent most of my professional life there. I was an entry level marketing assistant when I started worked my way up to chief marketing officer and then ultimately brand president. And I loved the company and the culture and the product. I'd worn the product since I was 6 years old. I traveled to Moscow in 1985 for the first ever goodwill games and packed my suitcase with lots of 5 O ones and traded them with Russian athletes. I mean, they were a symbol of freedom the world over.

"AP sport time Josh Brown tree. We started college basketball where there were four top 25 matchups throughout the country Tuesday. In Manhattan, Kansas K state dropped 9th ranked Baylor more from correspondent Greg eklund. First year head coach Jerome Tang and assistant coach at Baylor for 19 years, savored Kansas state's 75 65 win over the bears. It's not the who we played or winning that, but the environment tonight and just to turn out the crowd, the energy, I mean, every coach's dream K state trailed by three at halftime but came out firing in the second half behind chianti Johnson, who scored a game high 25 points, 16 of the second half. While Kant's point guard marquise Noel chipped in with 1410 from the free throw line, but he also had ten assists and no turnovers. Elsewhere 8th ranked Texas roughed up Iowa state 72 54, wade Taylor the fourth scored 25 points as 25th ranked Texas a and M, dropped 11th ranked Tennessee 68, 63, tenth ranked marquette got by 19th ranked creighton 73 71, and in their first home game since an on campus mass shooting 8 days prior, Michigan state knocked off 17th ranked Indiana 80 to 65. On the ice Carolina took down St. Louis Tuesday, four to one, a goal in two assists from Andrei svechnikov. There's been a while for me, like I said, and whatever is called a score and gives you a little bit conference and you just tried to boss out there and knowing the creative and more chances. That's what I was doing today. The red wings dropped the capitals three one as suitor scored twice for Detroit. Well, I mean, every point mathers ever get matters and you think it's just also building something how we play how we win games and just trying to continue that. And in the NBA, the Atlanta Hawks fired head coach Nate McMillan on Tuesday, less than two years after he guided the team to the Eastern Conference Finals. I'm Josh rowntree, AP sports.

What Should Reviewers Be Looking for in 41,000 Hours of J6 Footage?
"Gonna leave Tucker's team to do the heavy lifting over the next few days to sift through the 44,000 hours of footage. But given that two years has elapsed since January the 6th, given the charade the farrago, the clown show that was the January 6th committee that didn't answer any real questions. What should those people be looking for? There's obvious questions like where was ray Epps, who was the tower commander with the bullhorn. But what other things if you were guiding those teams of videographers? Well, let me give you a legal issue and that is the issue of entrapment. Because I was a drug prosecutor when I was an assistant U.S. attorney. And you always had to be careful that the undercover agent wasn't enticing, getting someone to do something, that that person would ordinarily do. So that's the issue of entrapment. So in this case, it would be what? It would be how many undercover ATF, FBI, whatever, whoever, or even people being paid by those government agencies. Yes. Assets. How many of them were present and for some reason the federal judiciary in D.C. hasn't thought that that was a defense. And so they haven't allowed that

"Let's just look at the situation on Capitol Hill. This was a catastrophic failure of security by the capitol police. Totally. And the police in the District of Columbia who were responsible for the security of the capitol, but it's the capitol police are responsible for the security of that building. The Speaker of the House, the sergeant at arms in both chambers and the architect of the capitol. I used to run this when I was the chief counsel and staff director of the Senate rules committee. I had jurisdiction over the capitol police and all the security. The fact that they were unprepared knowing that there were going to be a half a million people who were going to be asked to march to the capitol in peaceably demonstrate shows that they were woefully unprepared. Now, when you're unprepared and you lose the advantage as a law enforcement organization, the one thing that you do not do is you do not become bull Connor and you do not start brandishing weapons on people who are unarmed. This is a big mistake. It is a catastrophic security failure on Capitol Hill, which never should have occurred. They were totally unprepared. That's called making the news as it's happening. That's a throwback to our former studio two years ago as the events of January 6th were unfolding. We had the perfect guests in studio, people who understand what was happening even as it was happening. And we're back because of the breaking news of January 6th and all that footage that's been released to a certain individual at Fox News and your favorites are back in studio. Jojoba, Victoria tansen, do you remember that interview? Do you remember what that day was like? Never forget it. That was something else. Because you had just gotten in from hearing the speech. I'd been right there in front of the ellipse with the president listening to the speech, couldn't make it to Congress. My speech in front of the Supreme Court later that afternoon had been canceled, although that Nancy Pelosi subpoenaing my text messages because I was giving a speech at the Supreme Court. But let's go back in time because we have to talk about these latest developments. We have to talk about what's happening in the last two years. But Joe, why were you why were you uniquely qualified to talk about security on capital hill as those events were occurring? Please remind our listeners. Well, I had been the united states attorney for the District of Columbia under Ronald Reagan from 1983 to 1988. How old were you? I'm going to have something very rude. How old are you? I was 36. That's crazy. The youngest U.S. attorney attorney for district. He was great. I believe he was great, but that's so young. Yeah, but I had also been an assistant U.S. attorney in that office years before. And one of my assignments was to monitor the demonstrations in front of the then Soviet embassy. And all of those demonstrations over the years had been monitored, controlled with the Metropolitan Police department, demonstrations on Capitol Hill, tremendous amount of planning, scripting, talking with the Defense Department, the State Department, everybody. There was no way that you have something like January 6th, and you don't plan that out in every single step of the way every detail fine tuned with the police, the National Guard, and everything. And it didn't happen. But you also, in that position, as U.S. attorney, you were in those meetings back then with the house. Yes, absolutely. We conducted those meetings. We were in charge of making sure that the FBI, that the Metropolitan Police that everybody coordinated the activities that we had prosecutors ready to go to do arraignments in court if large numbers of people were going to be arrested. And so this was routine. We had been doing this for 40 years and then this happens on January 6th and you look at it and all you can say as a professional is these people did absolutely nothing to prepare for this major event. They were so prepared. I think it was interesting that Joe has told me that they would say, okay, you're all going to be arrested. And then we're going to go down to the station. And then we're going to let you go. And everyone agreed, okay, we'll do it that

Prosecutors Deny DOJ Planted Evidence on Enrique Tarrio
"Something very revealing and also disturbing has surfaced in the trial of the Proud Boys and specifically of Enrique tarrio, who is the leader of the Proud Boys. By the way, they are standing trial in D.C. under charges of seditious conspiracy. Now during the government's case, this was an assistant attorney general Conor McGregor. And he's interviewing he's not interviewing he is he is he has special agent Peter dubrovsky of the FBI on the stand. And they're talking about a document that is called the 1776 returns. So in other words, 1776 returns alluding to the fact that we're back at the moment of the American Revolution. And this is a document that supposedly lays out a plan for the takeover of the capital. If you look at this document 1776 returns, it talks about occupying 8 key buildings in D.C. on January 6th, 2021. And this document, according to the government, is a document that somehow is associated with the Proud Boys. It was a document that was retrieved from Enrique tarrio and the government goes, hey, look, clear. These guys were specifically plotting to seize 8 buildings and take them over so if you're looking for evidence that there was a seditious conspiracy to take over the government, here it is. Now, here's the problem. This document appears to be a planted document. And this has been now discovered by the defense and the defense has put a motion before the judge. And the motion is a kind of a bombshell, because here's what here's what the defense is saying. The defense is saying, first of all, that this document was not composed by tarrio. It was sent to him on telegram, the social media platform by his girlfriend. Or a girl that he knew, a woman named Erica Flores, but guess who composed the document. Somebody associated with the U.S. government. In other words, the plot did not come from the Proud Boys. It came from a plant or agent or somebody with deep government connections.

China says more than 10 US balloons flew in its airspace
"The U.S. is now shot down four objects in the sky over the last 8 days.

If it isn't, right? I'll shoot it down. As follows the shooting down of a big balloon from China off the South Carolina coast, objects were also shot down over Canada and Alaska. Why all this activity? Melissa Dalton is assistant defense secretary for homeland defense. We have been more closely scrutinizing our airspace at these altitudes, enhancing our radar, which may at least partly explain the increase in the objects detected. China now says more than ten U.S. high altitude balloons have flown in its airspace during the past year without its permission. Ed Donahue, Washington.

"assistant" Discussed on Innovation Now
"16 cameras on Orion capture critical mission components, as well as dazzling views of earthrise, and new high resolution images of the moon. But some of the cameras are recording an industry funded payload on Artemis one. This is innovation now. In a unique technology demonstration, Lockheed Martin has partnered with Amazon and Cisco to bring the Alexa digital assistant and WebEx video collaboration aboard Orion's first flight test. Named for Callisto, one of Artemis hunting attendants in Greek mythology, the payload will show how astronauts and flight controllers can use human machine interface technology to make their jobs simpler, safer, and more efficient. Unlike on earth, where Alexa uses the cloud to function, this modified Alexa uses NASA's deep space network and a local database aboard Orion to communicate. Onboard cameras record interactions between Callisto and operators on earth, where participants can see and hear each session to evaluate success. If the system works, future astronauts could ask Alexa to talk them through new procedures. Or use voice commands to do simple tasks like dimming the lights. For innovation now, I'm Jennifer pulley. Innovation now is produced by the National Institute of aerospace. Through collaboration with NASA and is distributed by W HRV.

"Are people talking about accessibility more than ever? I feel like it's just an insane. Absolutely. I remember when I was first doing talks, nobody knew what I was talking about. I have to define accessibility, I remember giving a keynote maybe 5 years in and I did a whole slide explaining accessibility and then I was like, nobody seemed that interested. So I said, raise your hand if you've heard of accessibility and pretty much the whole room did. So that was already some time ago. And now, maybe non technical people, but most technical people, they don't need the definition. They know what it is. They're aware of it, and often they've been working on it. I've been disappointed sometimes though with people that are that know about it, they understand it, and they're like, I could care less, just, yeah. I'm trying to look at the positive, right? Which is, which is more and more people are talking about it. So does more and more people talking about accessibility. Does that help obviously your mission of gad? Absolutely. And the mission of the foundation is really to change the culture of digital product development. We absolutely need the culture to change because you can say you don't have budget for accessibility, but if your programmer understands accessibility and knows how to code better, they don't need to ask for permission to do it right. And that's really the key. It's going to be hard, but I think it's getting better. It'll improve. There's certainly a lot of important people in the right places that are working on it. So I'm hopeful. May 20th of ASA global accessibility awareness day, what kind of things do we have to look forward to this year? So it's actually this year to May 18. It's the third Thursday every year. So we just try to make it easy for people to do planning, so they know they just need to look at that third Thursday.

"Asking you a question, you can answer me a question that there was a blog post by Stephen Wolfram that pointed out if you ask chat GPT the distance between two cities that'll give you the wrong answer. It'll come close, just like if I ask you between any two cities, you probably won't get that decimal point, right? But if you're going to a search engine, you want it right. And it's the same with a coding assistant. You have an average coder, not an excellent coder. And they'll need to change that and get it to be high quality code or that pushes out accessible code, then it will have a massive impact. But until we reach that stage, at least for that product, it'll make it worse. I don't want to ramble too much, but I can keep going on some other AI, how it will help. Yeah, by all means. All right, so there's these avatars that you can create where it'll take your voice, for example, it'll take samples and then it will now allow you to type words out, type out sentences, type out a script, and it will speak the script in your voice. There are some that will one that I saw at CES will translate it to 40 different languages in your voice. And now you have video that's going to do the same thing. And if you pair the video with the audio and it'll even make your mouth move the same way. So if you have, if you're let's say Stephen Hawking and you want to do a video, this enables your whole team assuming that you've got a team to build out a much better workflow for your videos. So you can Steven could tell the team what is it that he wants the video to be about. The team can write a script, can have him actually speak out that script. And take a look. If he likes it or not, and then make the adjustments as needed, and maybe he'll even film parts of it, but it allows a whole other experience and really improves that workflow. At the same time, you have people that may struggle with their speech or others that struggle to understand them, and there are projects out there that are creating synthetic voices to make it easier to understand. There's also the other side of it where it's listening and understanding different kind of speech patterns for people with disabilities. So that's just a couple. There's more, but I'll let you prompt me if you want more. Steven Scott, he's big, he's excited about driverless cars. Because of the prospect that he, as someone with even diminishing vision every day, could potentially own a vehicle that actually have it taken somewhere. Are there areas like that that you can see AI benefiting people with disabilities and aspect? Absolutely. And there were quite a few at CES. That one is a great one.

"I honestly don't know. I think this is the year where we'll see how serious folks are. I want to go back to when you founded global accessibility awareness day. And you're saying, close to a decade later, obviously things obviously people are releasing things on the day. People are actually embracing it. Did you ever expect that? Could you have ever expected that to happen that people actually follow it to that extent? Was that the intention from day one? I don't know about them releasing products, but it was the intention for it to turn into this. And I kind of have this crazy thing that while I go through these, I have all day long inspiration and vision and I just go through this creative points where I come up with these ideas and that day I wrote it down and while I was thinking of it, I was like, oh yeah, this can be a huge success, but we'll have to work really hard and really do the grassroots work. And then as soon as I hit send, I was like, this is never going to happen. There's no way. Not seen it, then I would never have done this. It was just luck to some degree, or as I put it, I've often thought about writing a book on how to make a difference. And it's combining vision with community. If you don't have the community, you'll get nowhere, but I had started tech tech communities or tech meetups in Los Angeles when there was none. And that really helped empower reaching an audience.

"But overall, I think that the message I think is a positive one. And it's just interesting to hear historian to hear his perspective on where accessibility stands right now. And also, more importantly, how AI is going to play a role in this because it's an exciting part, and I bring up in the conversation what you're going to hear, I bring up the fact you and I talk about accessibility in terms of mobility, like a driverless car. And how it could enable people and how that's something that you dream of. And we talk about that. And I bring up that story and a pretty good response to it. It was a good conversation. And we're going to have them on TV as well. I'm talking about a lot of these same things in two, three weeks from now. Stick around today to hear it and definitely tune it into the TV show because we get into some other interesting topics as well. Oh yeah, I can't wait for that TV show to hear. I am so looking forward to that one imputing people's reactions to it. It's going to be brilliant. That's going to be a fun one. Just to give you a specific that's going to be air on February the 21st. Oh, cool. Right. Okay, so the other thing, it's interesting because this has been another week where we've heard the news. And I don't know if you caught yesterday sure, but we were talking about envision the company behind the infamous envisioned glasses, and they've announced a new subscription model. So it's now going to be from January 2024, people will be asked to pay $200 a year to essentially get latest feature updates on the envisioned glass. It's now just on the envision glasses. Did you pay the thing before? So you didn't pan any subscription, but the glasses themselves cost between two and a half and three and a half $1000. Okay, so you paid out your two and a half thousand or you paid out your three and a half thousand, or maybe you paid a bit less when you got the deal or whatever it was. And you paid for it. And some people are saying, well, I paid for it in good faith. I paid for it that I was getting a device that I was going to pay the money for. A lot of money. I'll pay it. It gives me what I want. Now you're asking me to pay $200 a year extra. In order to keep up with feature updates. Now, again, and into all the detail in this yesterday, there are lots of caveats here first off, it's an optional thing. You don't have to subscribe. Everything that is on the device that you've paid for already will work and continue to work and you'll still get the maintenance updates. I've outlined all this on yesterday's show. But I think that for a lot of people they're seeing this as just another cost. And of course, we've seen the cost of Ira increase considerably massively actually this year. And it feels like I know overall costs go up. But there is a reality and a hidden cost of disability people don't talk about. And they certainly don't talk about enough if at all. You know, it is more expensive to be disabled. There's no way around it. It just is. There are so many costs and considerations. And depending on the disability, those costs can increase wildly.

That's why we have the effective vaccines that we have, and it's working for this from all the studies that we see So I would say Go to those certifiable sites. Um, perhaps, you know, b b Larry, uh, of, um, any information that you get over the Web. So you need to ask someone who may be a health professional. Someone in your family who you think, um, is aware of health information, and it's connected to Those reliable sources. Dr Madison were fighting against a lot of different information that's out.

I feel like You know, folks are on vaccinated that were being shamed a lot, he said. And I'll be honest with you by man said that ain't helping me change my mind. Right. It's the choices that Choi and we definitely don't approach it in that manner, And I think everybody has a right and just because you don't get vaccinated. That means you're not a good person, but you should be shamed. Um, we just continue to try to present the evidence of why you should be fascinated. I told one person who was a friend of mine. Um They didn't want to get vaccinated, but I had to remind them that well, they are protected because everybody else is vaccinated Your child. It was about the child. Your child is protected because the other Children I vaccinated so not to shame, and we shouldn't do that. But we should continue to try to give the evidence. Um, because it is what we believe to be the truth. And it is for those who have helped protect and save it is the truth and we just want to pass that truth on others.

Um and I would say by this time next year hope is We've been a much better place. Um, well, we don't return doing every holiday, etcetera. Um, so that's the hope will be.

But a washing machine nine times out of ten is a washing machine. A car nine times out of ten fundamentally is a car so the kind of brand that just provides not utility and you don't have deep kind of emotional relationships with customers.

Also just stunning player and sit this one out. This is what we're going to look today before we answer that question. We need to really think about the history of google. And what google is trying to accomplish with google assistant if you think about when the internet was first gaining popularity when google was first founded in ninety six ninety seven ninety eight whenever it was the primary access point to the internet at that stage was through a web browser through a computer and a web browser google managed to get itself into a position where it became the default access point to the internet because if the only way that people are accessing the internet is on a computer through a web browser and a vast majority of people increasingly over time at their internet journey on google. Google became the gatekeeper to all of the world's online information and knowledge and over over the years. What's ended up happening is the internet is obviously gotten bigger and bigger and bigger more devices again connected now. The access point for the internet comes in a whole different variety of where you can access the internet from absolutely anywhere. Yes still from a web browser but also through applications running on computers on smartphones. You can access it from your smart speakers and smart displays you can access it from your watch from your car from all of your home. Appliances toilets showers. There's even bathtubs with access to the internet. And so as the access points to the internet increase. Google is in a position where it's going from being the default front door to the hall of the internet now being the default front door in some situations when some people try to access a part of the internet and so with google assistant. What really going on a more interesting to look at is how google is jostling to get google assistant to be the access point for the internet. It's trying to get itself into a situation where google becomes the default front door to the internet again as it was when the primary access point was a web browser and so just look at the sheer number of integrations. Google assistant has its integrated into lords of cars. Volvo ford nissan reynaud mitsubishi union volkswagen. Now an increase in number of all auto manufacturers and integrate and google assistant into their set top boxes into their head unit infotainment systems.

Maybe not saying saying as much right. No so you always want to do that. So if the guy's killing you instead of you know take some time and think about what coverage you want to change to make him. You know to deal with that rather than just hit the head coach with some some obvious low hanging fruit. I mean believe me a head coach might be nice guy and not say anything to you because of that. But if you just say that. He's thinking should i want head coaches want solutions. They don't want what they already know. As if you have two assistant coaches three assistant coaches in one guy's given a bunch of advice the other two if you're their inexperience probably thinking shipment in this coaching his ass up. I need to get in there throw might basically. Don't worry about what anyone else is doing. Just think of ways. Well we need to trap him because pick and roll. He's turned the corner. Every time i would trap him coach of we get the ball out of his hand. That's something productive if a guy's just super hot let's just play like full. Denial on him but with no help responsibilities.

I say all that to say first year as assistant with a blue was pretty much hands on all the responsibilities that everybody else on the staff had their four assistant coaches in. He was the head coach so we all worked players right. Watch them with players before and after games were responsible for their player development. We all did scouts right. I have in my hand in some of those as well your first year. You don't have as many scouts. Maybe some of the other guys discounts right. Just everything within player development right and everything within scouting and then along with that right as a first year coach in organization like that.

If you don't want to plug in the usb don't wanna do any of that you just one less clutter you want it to be convenient to on it to like you know via must experience get in the car start driving and then you know you have something that you can rely on there and in the future you can add personalization the stuff like that which to some extent we provide today and we do have profiles that learned based on the things you do today. But it's i think we're gonna go definitely gonna go away from you know having to set up all these things in always relying on our phones. It's a phones. I think it's going to be something that's gonna be integrated in every single device that you're interacting with because eventually you don't necessarily want to carry a device with you you want the world around his without to to you and if you think about the future than a song because the phone is everywhere. It's just need yourself. Yeah i can see the likes of apple of on the road to do not like breaking out away from the iphone into a watch that's kind of self sufficient but it's still tied to your apple. Profiles is still kind of has that personalization and the the homepod speaker kind of requires your phone. Probably if you don't have an iphone and you had to watch maybe sync with that. I'm not sure an copley kind of uses the same saw things can see where you kinda getting out there. I remember before we did before we kind of put this together. You distinctly asked to challenge you recall. You said i want you to challenge me. And so there's this trend is a thread running through this. The is interested. Nothing because you you started talking about the the old if you like. Before natural language the oldest. The old voice control was very much turn on the heat antonia conditioning while meanwhile musyoka kinds of stuff then we get natural language understanding. You're able to do a bit more things with able to provide mall kinds of services and you said that you integrate with yelp and you can do better directions and those kind of things all of those things kind of fit naturally within the perfect use cases for the car controlling the vehicle. Probably some questions of whether you can control safety features so the spoke to someone to charge you a landrover. That's kind of a no-go area. If voice control is the only way of getting into car for example So you've you've you've got those use cases that would be a natural perfect fit your drive in play music you drive in. You want to know where you're going you drive in you. Want to put the air conditioning. On those things are absolutely make perfect sense. You mentioned the then that personalization one of the things that apple google alexa either have are on the real road to having is an intense understanding of the customer apple knows everything i do on this device. It knows all the services. I use the app us. How often i use them. How often i pick up my phone. Hold on i spend on it. You know where. I shop who i call. Who has been knows absolutely everything about me and so siri could be the most helpful assistant on the planet because could get an education on monday morning says. Hey it's monday morning usually call your dad. You wanna call now not to be proactive as really super personalized. Google assistant the same. You know if you're in android world or even you know we use g. suite seven also. Google understands behaviors and my my productivity tools. I use so they can start to get a real thorough understanding of me and the us i imagine the m. The long term of google apple amazon is to stock and uses embedded into these ecosystems. It's not using these assistance more often so the assistant is the assistant days with you wherever you go. Yeah doesn't matter if you're at work doesn't matter if you're at home doesn't matter if you've got your phone does murphy you wash murphy reports or your apple headphones doesn't matter where you are your assisted the understand you is the and whatever you ask for it. Can it can solve that kind of problem. One of the areas that needs to be is obviously in the cow because some people spend a large amount of time in the car and therefore if If apple understands the. I'm listening to one. Podcast on. Homepod mixed moss. It makes sense to continue planner podcasting complex. It makes sense for apple to give me that notification monday morning. Tacoma dot through my dashboard while driving. Because if i happen to be in the car at the time that i usually do that my assistance. Kind of let me know so. It's i'm interested in in on the stand the way you wear. Your feelings are around the long-term off voice assistance in general on if apple and siri and google assistant on alexa is going to be this thread. That joins together the moments in people's day..
"assistant" Discussed on VUX World
"Where did where did the mercedes journey into. Voice come from then. You said you've been there five years five years ago where things up how how things being started with things. Moving was alexa. This sparked everything like how was things when you first i from the from the voice perspective. You know a lot of people don't know this but voice has been with mercedes for quite some time now actually more than twenty twenty years. I think twenty four to be specific back in the days. Cars used to be the platform to showcase new technologies and innovation from all around the world and <hes>. In nineteen ninety six at the paris show mercedes fielded car called the f two hundred imagination and it was a concept car. had no steering <unk>. Just a couple of joy sticks and that was kinda like a huge innovation in had the aromatic suspension and the first voice control system in a car. And that was the first time ever that this was featured in the car <hes>. And since then we introduced it in our collection cars and it has gradually developed an evolved throughout the years. But i think the big breakthrough came when we launched the latest nba system and two dozen eighteen at c. s. Because for the first time we only have you know voice recognition in the car. So it's kind of when we moved from voice control to voice assistant design. We had you know a connected car we interface with cloud and d assistant capabilities just exploded than we became so much more flexible in what we can do. And what is hey mercedes the nba do and and how do you. How do you pay the difference between using voice control versus voice assistance. We see things that the difference how we define internally is voice control is supposed to be more command based so there's specific commands and you have to learn and they have to remember when you talk to the car you have to like tell specifically those things otherwise that i will not understand you <hes>. When we think about more of a voice assistant we think about natural language processing and also system that constantly evolves where we can add <hes>. You know we can extend the language model to now understand more <hes>. Where this was quite hard to do in the past but now is something that we do on a regular basis so the mercedes then in some way shape or form has hired voice recognition with your. Call it with us. Some people might have called it an assistant. I dunno it's had some form of the mercedes of some former voice interaction in the vehicles for for quite some time all right
