You got a sneak peek at one of those big releases right. Yeah that's right. I got a chance to check out. Elden ring which is a video game. Collaboration between george are martin. The author of the game of thrones fantasy series from hbo and from software which is the studio that makes popular role playing games like dark souls and secure. Oh shadows die twice. Wrote a story about this. And everything i saw and you can read that on tech dot. Usa today dot com. So in the game you play as a tarnished and you're roaming the lands between and in this you're battling all forms of enemies they have these giant dragon's giant ogres. And you're doing this on a quest to become the elderly lord some outlets that i wrote about this as well described elderly ringing across between dark souls and the legend of zelda breath of the wild just because you know players can just freely explore the map and go as far as they want and just kind of really roam around You'll collect map fragments to get a better view of the world and you can also place markers so if you want to highlight Where treasurer is or if you know. There's a really difficult monster that you have to conquer but you're not ready yet. You can mark all those you also have what's called a spirit steed which is kind of like this ghostly horse that you can mount and that helps you move to the map. Lot faster The other thing that game has is what from software describes as legacy dungeons which are basically similar to what you might find in dark souls game. So you'll come across during the demo. I saw they had this giant castle and had lots of detail it had all these different pass through the dungeon and of course there's lots of challenging monsters and other enemies so it's it feels like it's just a lot of different layers and a lot of small details that players will be able to find as they make their way through the game.

There was a blog post. You did about social media and it being an extension of white privilege and it was a white privilege in the office. And i specifically wanted to hone in on this one line. Euro is said There's an added layer of complexity. When you add tech and social media to this mix. Now you don't just get to know your colleagues in the workplace but also by their digital presence. What they choose to comment on or void and i particularly ass because a hire people and i wonder because the first time i see a resume go look facebook twitter. I wanna see what you're talking about. Who are you really beyond this resume that you gave and i wonder your thoughts on how this continues to play out in the complexity in tech. I think that the complexity with it as oftentimes you're you know you're working with people who are also building the tools and one thing that they did at facebook is as soon as you accept your offer. I think within forty five minutes of me accepting offer my soon to be colleagues at a sent me facebook requests house. I own On and my husband specifically say why don't you just create the limited profile function. An adam to that and i said honestly that sounds like a lot of work like that's me maintaining essentially to digital presence on one platform. That's too much work. If you get what you get in so if you like. I remember the bet might have been like the second or third week that i was working there and that man who had that really cute mugshot with blue eyes and everyone loved him and i posted something about it. And my general counsel slew his chair. 'cause he sat at the next bangka chairs and he was like so. That's what you like like. Oh you jokes calling okay. And i said look i don't want not necessarily i don't want him like but it's it's a coup pitcher. You was what they call in prison bay or some was but that's the prison bay ended up coming up. You became a model. Marry like a millionaire billionaire so he he won. I guess so but yeah. It was one of those things where you know at any other workplace. Nobody would have seen that. Because i wouldn't if you send me a friend request and you just remain in purgatory. So i think it is the the digital presence of what are the things that you choose to comment on. What are the things that you ignore. And it's not like people don't notice that so whether it is you know you didn't acknowledge that there was a string of people that were killed by. Police or armed vigilantes in the case of aubrey. If there you don't wanna talk about that or you don't speak on that or you don't notice it but you hear us talking about it in the break room or something or you hear us talking about it outside of work and you happen to just you know. Join in with something like that. But you don't say anything doll- think that when you walk away that we weren't talking about the fact that you didn't say anything and you know i've been in other workplaces where something like that will happen. And you know people will just completely tarp pivot and run from the conversation. And but i've also been in a workplace within this. One of the people say was a great great ally when i was at facebook. Is this guy named mark and was after. Mike brown been killed. And i just didn't have open workspace. And i just didn't want everyone to stand there all day and sit there leg where people could come to act like. This didn't happen like you're just coming in. You know talking to me about whatever. And i just. I don't wanna talk about that. So i wind black myself in a empty conference room and he went around floor to all the conference rooms looking for me and then when he did he just knocked on the door and i was actually going in and he was like. I just wanna know if you're okay and i was like how. How long did you go around. Is building like about ten minutes. But i just wanted to know if you were okay because i saw you earlier this morning and i didn't see you again.

"Like if the company is probably sixty percent white males and the other forty percent is a mix of everybody else but also in that forty percent would be predominantly asian. Will that leaves us with ed about probably five percent at best and i know that one thing that i did when i worked at facebook is every single person that i refer was black woman. Even when i left. I still would float their resumes. Give them to people who i knew. Were allies internally and the good news is they all got hired. But it's because i knew who to pick and choose in terms of like advocating for them internally so that's one thing that is hard to is like nine times out of ten if you have an internal advocate that will get you farther down the line but because there are few of us there. It's hard to find an eternal advocate. So usually it's a friend of a friend or somebody from that to your college or your law school or your business school. Or what have you and doesn't always have to be A black internal advocate. But somebody who knows how to navigate that system and will will champion it for you. And i think the other piece to that is also just making sure that you know if if you get inside you have to be to me. I always look at There was a line in my black graduation from berkeley and was michael. Jackson gave the speech and he always said he. At the end of the speech he said be a trojan horse. So that's kind of how i look. Everywhere i go is an ex. Seen two types of black people in these companies one is the type that's a trojan horse and it's going to hold the door. Open an advocate for other people to inside or if they're people already there you advocate for them to get promoted or you advocate for them to get better work assignments and the second type of person. I've seen the type that wants to be the special negro snowflake and they want to make sure the door slammed because they want to be one of a few like that makes you feel special now. That doesn't make me feel special. But ed but for some of those people it's that is their calling card that so the less the less of us that are there the more special day feel and so they want to make sure that the door shut and i have even seen d. I practitioners like that which to me is like how do you have this job. Well i mean. I know how you job because you're going to be a yes person for the majority but it just seems like a cruel bayton switch but i would say it's it's gonna be that twofold you have to have people that are on the inside that are going to be trojan horses and you also have to make sure that you have internal advocates in work your network you know tech is still very new. Industry may remain in the mainstream context. If you think fifteen years ago you just started to get things like facebook and cetera. And then you know so. Let's say let's call it twenty years. That tech has been like in the dominant mainstream conversation there so many attorneys who maybe work in real estate law. Maybe they work in criminal law but they want to be in to this tech thing. How can they find their way into helping startups. Yeah i would say there are lots of startups that can't retain large firms. So like if you think of like a mojo or cooley Know they just can't afford the larger companies and so the answer to that would be. Maybe that person offers them discounted services just to get the experience to say that they've been advising startups or helping start-ups. I think that's one thing that would be great in terms of bolstering your resume and then who knows if that startup actually gets more funding than you'd be the person that they would end up hiring as their first attorney whether that's a general counsel role or some other The other thing you can do. Is i always tell people to make your experience analogous to whatever it is. You're applying for so people tend to look at resumes. And they don't really or they look a job descriptions rather and they don't change their resume to fit the narrative of what the job description is looking for that a huge no so for every bullet point that is on the job description. Your resume needs to detail how you have either done something that is just like that and here. The results that i got from doing that work or needs to be an analogous argument. Meaning i didn't. I didn't necessarily do this way. But this is something that i did. That is very akin to what it is. You're looking for and i won't. Even i would start off with. I haven't done this. I would say you know accordance with you know. Xyz type of experience. I've done something analogous such as blah blah blah blah blah and. Here the results from that so always make sure that you are reading the job description and making sure that your resume lines up with it. A lot of people simply send the same generic resume out over and over oregon and also they need to be mindful that the way the job descriptions are written. It's you know. Sometimes you can't tell what is bucket them in three ways. Some what's a what's a must have. What is a nice to have. And what is the moonshot like. We want you to have these. You know five imperative skills. It'd be great if you had these three. That are nice to have and then like also if you speak arabic and japanese like we love it now you probably are gonna get that but the other things you probably can and Also be mindful that though the words in the phrasing that they're using those job descriptions. Those are the key words that are going to be searching for in their portal when they're looking to advance people to screening interviews and so again if you're just sending out generic resume and it doesn't have any of those buzzwords in it there. You're not going to get past the screen. So let's take the other arguments or other case to this. How does our startup that has potential court and adviser who may be lawyer. I had what gets bari's attention to for you to be an advisor to my thing. A good idea honestly. I'm not someone who focuses solely on. you know. ooh how how fast can go public. Or how much money can they make. Or how much money have they already raised and for me. It's also the journey and like how passionate are these. These people team about what it is that they're doing and.

"If you put out this type of marketing campaign with these visuals in this narrative you're going to get dragged on twitter. That ad is going to have to come down. You will have lost five hundred thousand dollars in however many man and woman hours creating this ad. So there's that angle or it's you make it a product that is inclusive and has multiple use cases and functions and also maybe has an audio function has a function that you know will allow that to have a blind person use it. You're gonna gain that much more traction because now more people can use your product that's more revenue you know. You testified before congress about ai. Artificial intelligence bias in congressman. Asked you about how that could be developing this this software and i guess some people might imagine that it's not inherently racist. Just code in right. And but can you speak to what's happening with the development of ai that should be potentially a cause of concern for black and brown people as we get more into a world that relies on artificial intelligence. Yeah and when he asked me that question. I kinda just remember sitting in church with my mom and she would just pinch me and say. Fix your face base. Because i was like what do you mean how's it. How could it possibly be inherently by. It's code well. Who makes the coat people unconscious bias like it's not like the code magically came from the sky a lot of things that go into making these algorithms that will tell you your credit score or your availability for certain mortgage amount is based on stale data so the example that i gave was if you are basing this off of data from nine hundred sixty five while they were still lining and black neighborhoods sued saying we couldn't having restrictive covenants indeed said we couldn't buy in certain areas so if you're using that data it's going to be inherently biased because it's based on racist laws in so if you are updating that data we're using additional data it's corroborate what you have already coded then you're doing it wrong and the way that the easy summation of that for me is who fact checks the fact checkers because in this instance the people that are coding algorithms that will determine your credit worthiness will also determine the also use this same kind of functionality in policing algorithms tell police where they should go on certain times of day and it's based off of previous crime data history it's based off of moon phases it's based off temperature records. It's based off of like randomness. So you're just going to say because in one thousand nine hundred five. It was eighty eight degrees in east oakland. So now we need to say twenty cars to patrol there tonight. You like oh. It's also based on sports team records. So i guess. How do you gauge that. Because how many cop cars do you send an order. And when they went a big game and those kids storm field bursts the warriors lose and you have had a jillian cars around coliseum. So like how do you gauge. And a lot of that is going to be unconscious bias. You're going send with twenty cop cars where the majority of the black people are. But you know those wikileaks storm in the field. Other celebrating lighting things on fire. He talked to me like a little bit about. What's what's happening in. The actual technology that allows it to be biased like seeing certain faces versa faces thinking some people look alike versus other people looking like. Oh you're talking about like the unconscious their actual tests for that where you have to decide and that you get like i think three seconds to scroll through And i've taken this course you'd have three seconds to decide if this person is like a good person or bad person and it's interesting because you could see you know seek men with with their hair wrapped or you could see a black woman. With natural hair or your. Who's dark skin or you can see a lighter skin black woman straight hair or you see a white lady or you see a a dark skinned black man and you literally just have to press the button and figure out who this person Masher and even just like not just looking at their face but also the clothing. Some of them had college sweatshirts which is going to give you a whole different skew. That person right like so. Maybe i might be afraid of your face. But if i see the fact that you're wearing a shirt to stanford maybe i'm less afraid am. It's little subtle cues like that too so you you're dealing with people who are taking those tests and to some extent are failing there and those are the people who are actually doing the coding and then understanding that even little things like the hand dispensers in In public bathrooms. Like you go to the airport and i have to stick my hand under that thing three times. Four so come out and it's because it was designed for people with lighter skin hands and little simple things where it's not that you think people are doing it on purpose. It's just that is what they're used to. And so that is how they designed the prophet in the same thing is transferred to code will if this is the data that i've been given an order to base your credit score off of and this is historical data Credit scores in certain based on your zip code based on your age if this is the information that we've had for the last ten years.

"Ventures on the virtual stays talking with isa watson co founder. Ceo squat because it's no surprise that when you're investing early in startup life cycle many will find out what the originally started building has to morph into something new. What does strauss think about. This pivot the secret concern when he invested in one thing and if he comes enough. Yeah the pivoting questions that good one. I do care about the initial idea. I know some preceding seed investors. Who don't care about the initial idea. They're just like this is an amazing person. That's the challenge we have is at the companies. We've acted raising five hundred k. Two dollars it's not a lot of money in the grand scheme of things so if your first original idea is really off base you might not have enough time. Actually it to a new idea. Pivots are pretty common for us to proceed in early because we're backing somebody product hypothesis. And sometimes you roll out the hypothesis in the forum product that turns out that the market response to it in a very different way than you had expected so whenever that happens i try to take founders through a set of questions to figure out. Did we get something wrong about initial hypothesis. And sometimes it happens sometimes. The hypothesis was correct but the market is less interesting than we thought was to begin in just a little. Hey people who wanna buy the products they like it song them this kind of a pain service. The kind of pain. There's a market here but not one that like we as a company are like super excited to tackle and then sometimes you launched the product we launched was okay and it's fine but in launching it we discover something that we think is way more interesting so the way i think about is it's always okay. I think to pivot. If you're doing it from a position that knowledge would i worry about. Sometimes though is people who are flailing. They lost a product. That doesn't work immediately. They launched another product and that doesn't more community. Sometimes you just have to like take a breath and figure out. What did you learn. Sometimes the answer is the product is right. The market's just not ready for it. Do we want to hunker down and be patient and wait for the market to catch up with what we think or do we want to say. Hey you know. We're way too early here. We should probably abandon this. Find something new. So a lot of what i try to get people to think through is what have we actually learned from this launch. What have we actually learned about the customer. And are we doing this from a position of information and knowledge not from the position of fear of. I'm will lucas. Mrs black tech three money. I'm going to answer the some of the biggest names. Some of the brightest minds in brilliant ideas few black and building simply using texas. Back this past. This fee williams's chief operating officer of bandwagon fan club date in identity. Analytics tech company focused on the sports and entertainment space. She's also a diversity. Inclusion corporate social responsibility consulted brian bandwagon. She held executive roles. That comes all turtles. Stub hub in facebook thinker. Not a coder. And i wanted to get her thoughts of why it seems to be hard for black people who are not technical roles that companies have built tech to see themselves as being in tech alternatively if we say we work in hr legal at a healthcare energy company. Were much quicker to say. We work in those sectors is. There's still some demystification that needs to happen about what building tech means. Probably is some level of disconnect. I guess i will call it in terms of are you really. Integ- are utech jason. Am i think. I feel like particularly in my field. Lie being lawyer feel like you're still in tech because there are certain things that you have to do and double check in terms and make sure the product doesn't violating laws That your privacy is kept private that you know something doesn't happen where the company ends up getting sued because of some discriminatory element of what is ju- created or even if it's looking at it from the lens of how inclusive is the product anna. A blind person useless. So if the answer's no you may be opening yourself up not just to lawsuits but people also neglect the fact that you know a tech company and can do something and get horrible. Pr and get dragged and that has absolutely nothing to do with whether the product was good better indifferent it could be. You had a really terrible marketing campaign but if you might have had a black marketer in that room they would have told you that that ancestry. Dna were slave runs away with her masters. Not necessarily the best way to get us for ancestry dna. Kim so you know. Sometimes it's about saving the company from itself. Even if you don't think that is a an adequate tech role and i'd say that because i'm married to a product manager so he is buried in of tech and not take jason so but i still don't think that you know. I don't think that the those roles are tech adjacent. They're just as important to keep the company going as anything else. Do you think there's any level of feeling not included because we may not be able to code if we work at a company and we can't say we work in tech. Young people will look at it that way. There are lots of people who look at it that way in the sense that you're not really. You're not really in the industry because you can't ride a line code. I sure can't. But i could tell you. Show me how what you've written in how it works and i can tell you whether that's legal or not valuable so i that whole idea of the name of jesus but i understand that some people don't but i do think that there's definitely kind of a there's definitely a hierarchy and people look at the people who can code or the people who are product managers or the people who are product designers. Those are the people that are. Really tech. All your your. Gna functions your legal. Your sales you're marketing. Hr deny they look at that as i. It's not really. You're not really moving the product forward. You know you you've done a lot of advocacy for being in the room and trying to hold the door open for other people to be able to get in the room. But how can you. Admonish other folks to both strategically is successfully advocate for having more faces brown faces black faces in the room when everybody don't want us in the room. So how how can we do that and not feel like. We're in a precarious situation..

The decision was designed to give the city a chance to regain order before an international crisis tore the nation. Apart leading up to the death. Iran had been a hotbed of foreign interest. The british had tried and failed to establish a protectorate over the nation. Meanwhile russia had recently vacated its stakes after their defeat in world war one. The newest foreign party to take an interest was the united states and they mainly wanted one thing oil. They pressured the iranian government into allowing oil tycoons to start drilling into the land when robert embryo was killed at the hands of an angry mob. All the foreign actors in the country started pointing fingers at each other. Tehran newspapers and russian authorities blamed the british for inciting muslims into a frenzy. Others blamed the russians who had expelled embry from moscow after he defended his anticommunist beliefs fellow american spy marguerite harrison who recently departed the near east while posing as a filmmaker claimed international intrigue was to blame but above all according to margarite. Embree was to blame for his own death. He had knowingly entered a dangerous situation marguerite also claimed embry made a serious error by fleeing the initial attack at the shrine. According to iranian custom running away proved he was guilty of sabotaging the site. If he had stayed the people would have merely punished him but not killed him.

I hear mixed reviews like about whether or not it holds up better. Somebody who's never watched it. I watched the first couple episodes. And i was like okay. It feels very like time period. Yes he's typing. So i'm not watching being like oh. I can't relate to this because i'm not watching in the nineties. I'm watching it being like. This is a show about something that took place in the nine. There's a lot of themes that i think are ever present. There's a lot of stuff that has aged very poorly already. I'm nearly three hundred. Never even fucking her to gobble. Goule the fuck just goulet. I've sent me down here for the gaba goule looking. He's looking at no please started talking. I wanna see it's for a it'll come up. We'll talk off. I think it does hold up. I think it doesn't i. It's it's weird that those characters are like they're meant to be the people you're enjoying like you're following it for those characters. But they have no redeeming care. They're bad people put there's no redemption either. That's kind of the part. That's the point of it in some ways. The pardon why do i why do i what do i feel. What makes me feel for these characters. That are just shitty people. Well the thing is there's a cold it rise. It's like a gte situations like all these characters are criminals and stuff but like there's just like rule of empathy worried. That's when you're supposed to empathize. You hear the challenge. You bad thing. I was the biggest thing that i disagree with with the entire thing of surprises. Because it's like it's to me. It's like the shining. The shining is one of my favorite movies of all time. But if you have never seen the shining and you watch it now. It's a boring movie. It's a very long movie. That has a build up to what is comparatively to other movies. Now not as exciting and ending as feel about reservoir dogs. It's an integrated on some a couple years ago. For the first time. I still loved it. It's a great. It's a fantastic. Man is like boring movies. Sure i do too. I one of my favorite movies is fucking Brothers don't ever say bory movie. i'll fight you. I love step. I said thank you. I stepbrothers reservoir totally before we go into this. And i just watched in the heights. I don't want. I didn't come in for you. H home that movie. I wasn't crazy about it. Yeah moving on. I to finish my point. Just is the sopranos it now walk. Jesus all right well next. The surprises a very good show for the time. But it's also a show that was made with sustainability in mind without like a real. I don't know how far in advance they had. The ending planned out but a lot of the show feels like they're the endings in say the end it guy just feel like they were making a show And at a certain point they were just making more show yeah whereas other shows that are more modern like breaking bad which i would say is probably on the same level. They knew where they were supposed to end. I think it's because as i understand it not having been a tv viewer back then. This was kind of like a like a like a sea change for for like premium television. I think it would have that procedural style in in spirit because it was made among that but the fact that it reach such narrative like consistency heights. I think had not been seen before. And so like you get like kind of like one off episodes and stuff and like they do this thing where they'll fold in a background character which is just another italian american guy. In the background eventually gets thrust to the forefront for like a very significant pot or even a pot and so like structurally. It's a little dated and there are some. There's like insane like transition wipes there's literally a cube trend like an instagram story. It's insane like there is a lot of that show. her is aged the attitudes. There's things in that show where they do bad things and they say bad things and you're supposed to understand it's bad like things they say about like minorities are like gay people and like in the moment. It's not seen as cooler good but it has gotten age so much worse that what they're saying is not only a little off color and a little out of you know polite conversation but it is like really awful shit so like it's not saying we're supposed to enjoy it but it's like really it's like this is i think damaging the characters more so than it did twenty some years ago for mainstream audiences. It's weird i. I recommend it patrick. Reineck recommended watch through. Please do and that's a part of pop. Culture big bo was that was. My thing is just like it's one of those things where yeah you should definitely watch. It changed the way. The television was made forever but tv has since that point kept. And i feel like has got you know. That's definitely right that that a lot of it has not aged but also as someone who grew up in the northeast. There's a lot that i recognized from growing up in that exact. Same time period. is so funny because like as as an irish catholic family philadelphia there are so many like just similarities and parallels that just like fucking takes me for a ride of mike. Oh i feel like. I've been there like it's bizarre. Anyway that's sopranos cast lucky. Got us here somehow. That's right. Because paulie walnuts is the finale. That's my favorite. Part of the of the is what Lucky turns a quarter and just thought. I was lucky me back in all right. That's enough of that. We have one final segment One that we.

"Ios quick arnold's going to grow up real fast. Well i the one thing. That maybe i shouldn't have focused on so heavily when i heard this story but the thing that i realize that he had he had a two bedroom two bath and now he has a two bedroom one bath. One alligator house relied size. I i asked. I asked if they if they if he still uses that as the bathroom. Door guy goes. Oh no there's no way that it's owned by the alligator alligator owns that room. But i mean patrick's bathroom like that for his cats tastes really like you know is he does. Yeah it's scott litterbox. It's kind of like that. Like in our new place. We have one room that only has a litterbox in it. So it's just like see alligator for all we know it's the same thing that's my litterbox wherever they want taking shit. What george clooney did it. Everybody loves him. Get out of here. Perry it now have some new stories. This week is kind of tied to this. This whole thing Mr peacock a beloved neighborhood bird had died o week. Oh yeah. I don't want to guess. What kind of bird. Los angeles neighborhood bird. He from Community and i think it was mckinley ville in northern california. I our neighborhood. So he's seeing. It is a peak kinds of peacocks around here because i can't even almost At the same time we can't dwell on it. It's impossible mr shot anyways but yeah i mean there's a lot of peacocks around here. That have escaped. But they haven't been they've well presumably died of old age. Well sorry audio throw up. Almost nothing the cfc's oh the peacock died. The peacock died. This beautiful blue boy was a sort of mascot for his northern california community. And that's what makes his death so odd because he didn't die of old age And he wasn't like run over by a car or anything he was shot down in cold blood from a picot. Somebody shot and killed by a up e. kentucky shit. Somebody shot and killed. I actually have omar pull this up. I have a picture of mr peacock. We have bodycam footage shipped mississippi kosh peacock that Essentially the same as we have in los angeles escape like a nature park Here we have the arboretum over there. They have the northern california burrito. Or whatever the fuck and so He he peacock hit. That's that's that's suspicious very suspicious that someone took a out. Yeah like the picture file. Peacock dash hit okay. This is the bird that i need you to a good omar. That's enough visser cut guy. I can't bear it anymore. So full of life just wrecks picot. Well the killer. The shooter may never be found and may never face dresses but the plot just keeps on a thickening because a month before the fatal shooting took place a craigslist ad was put up by a disgruntled neighbor and the ad read a quote. The job is simple. Get rid of the wild peacock. By any i mean my god and it was signed quoth the raven mr raven. Doyle mr didn't like the peacock The animal services like having them take them to agree. I don't think it's about getting rid of the bird. I mean in some sensitive. But i think something cheaper than that. The story essentially goes that you know this. There was a family that found The peacock and then would kipp kept feeding it bread Till i get it to come back and hang out And so it wasn't somebody's pet it wasn't like own. They didn't have like a cage for it. He was a free day exactly. It was a free bird. Exactly charlotte And so that was that was the situation that the peacock hat and there was a neighbor. Who is Kind of a kind of a grumpy puss and didn't want the peacock to hang around and kept asking for to go calling animal control. There wasn't really anything that could be done Apparently everyone knew that this was the guy that called the hit because a week before the craigslist ad went up. He sent out a mass email to all of his neighbors but started with now guys. Look i'm an animal lover and then went on to list. Y peacocks are terrible creatures. Oh man i can just picture this guy like the dean of school in a movie just looking out his window and brooding and going that damn mr peacock gallivanting around this neighborhood like he owns it. Oud that steams me. Ooh that burns my brownies. Mr house have you guys ever heard a peacock before yeah. Nbc service their loud as shit too. The la zoo wander around or was that a different arboretum. So many okay. I remember when i was a kid and they're like walking around kind of terrifying. The story goes essentially that they had them at the arboretum than they escaped from the arboretum and Similar to the parents. I think you've seen the the wild parrots in los angeles specifically pasadena. Where when they got out people were like well they. They're probably not going to survive. I mean this. isn't there like native home. it's going to be fine and then they have become increasingly community. Oh yeah that's like Canadian geese which i think can whisk you know what really sucks aggressive though. Don't they I mean ever gets aggressive if they're pushed far enough. There's not aggressive like pit like magic. Pigeons like just picked. Your eyes outweigh walk down the street. Pretty birds by the way. I think. That's true visionary time birds were mean what. If in hitchcock's birds there was a peacock. It might be the kind of thing like that like any animal. You don't want to provoke it. And if maybe like a precocious little toddler Gets a little too close. Maybe they'll pay for it. Yeah which you know by said learned but Yeah the philadelphia zoo. They just kind of walk around. I think that probably happens at lot is us and but it were there. I think during mating season it must be mating season. They get as high as up as they can so they just stand on the roof of the snack shack and like omar. Just say they just go up screaming odd today. Every time i do that. But i mean but they also just walk across the path that like everyone reveres their royalties so like no one goes near. I don't think they were dangerous. They would be allowed to do that. They almost have like some sense of of awareness of how people see them too. Because i i've i used to live over in pasadena and you'll be driving through a neighborhood and one will walk in the street and you're like come on get the fuck out of the way and it will almost knowingly give you a layers and just be like what are you gonna fucking do doubt it. Yeah i don't think you're a fucking monster him and then he started writing the hit. This head is java impulse description. This is this is a screenshot of the ad. The job is simple. Get rid of a wild peacock that is disrupting our lives. Locating the bird is easy. Has it roots in the trees near my house every evening. around eight. to eight thirty there are no fences. So access the zeke birdcage here about four months ago knows from where and no one no. No one here owns it if.

I have a personal story that i wanted to share with you I got an email from the building that i live at That i wanted to read to you. Dear residents we would like to take this opportunity to remind all residents of our policies regarding animals in our community one. The animal must not disturb neighbors or residents whether inside or outside the dwelling to animals must be a legally allowed to be owned as per local law. Three you are responsible for immediately cleaning up any messages or waste caused by the animal and then it goes on with a bunch more rules and these rules mostly member to seemed very odd to point out that you you have to. Your animal must be allowed to be owned legally ause yeah And i thought that was very strange. Until i found out the reason why is because a resident who owns a penthouse in the building that i live in owns a monkey and an alligator in the same home. Now that's interesting. That is interested in gator. As far as i know it's adolescent. So it's about this big okay. Teenagers as small as the monkey adolescent seven. This guy has a penthouse. Got the monkey by the way. It's one of those very small monkeys. Which by the way. I didn't realize those monkeys are very aggressive. Oh yeah funkier faceoff you. I'll assume that about any monkey. Like probably are what are we but just big a monkey. They found the monkey the monkey while living here. This is while i'm living in. This is the building. I live in right. Now they're still they're still there. Yeah yeah because this is america. I found out about the monkey because the guy brought it to the pool and that was the first straw. Now hold on of the animals to bring to the pool. I think i'm going to have to sell with this person. Want to go on the water. The alligator wants to go in the water. Not suntanning just goes for walks. That's the case. Okay monkey to your pool so many monkey to my pool and that was the first round where the building was in the fool guy. Oh yeah okay. So i fucking underwater and i come up and i. I do the sexy thing. Push my hair bag. And then i look over to the mic over to my sexy left. And i see a monkey and the first thing that pops in your head when you see a monkey in the wild is just like that. That's not a monkey they can't i don't know if someone's very ugly baby. I said hey listen you know. We've all seen a monkey in the pool. You know how. I've never seen a monkey outside of a controlled environment. I've only seen monkeys inside of the houses of drug dealers before this was the first time i've seen a law abiding citizen own a monkey they law-abiding monkey at the pool. Talent pool like you can have that monkey here. Yes yes they did. The building management came up to the pool and escort him outside. And that's the last. I heard last. I heard actually. He still owns the monkey but when they went back to his apartment to reprimand him for the. This is all stuff. I got from the door guy at my building. Yeah apparently you. When they went to when they went to talk to him about the monkey he told them about the other pets that he had because he also he was like well. They're like do you have anything else. You have any other monkey he goes. I just have like a cat i have. I have arnold. This is seed will be alligator. Yeah like normal. Since like wow i used to have probably twelve fifteen cats over the years but i only arnold arnold gets hungry untrained lions though his apartment issues. Are you going to get that. You're not supposed to have that fight his monkey off your monkey. Yeah this is about fighting. Why can't we all just get on. Now they gotta gotta find something to fight his monkey.

The Real Cause of Alzheimers and Dementia
"Wanna jump right in and talk about alzheimer's because you wrote a really interesting instagram post. I think it was a few weeks ago. And you were saying. Alzheimer's reversal is is real. It's not just a theory and you were hinting at a new study. Small one but something exciting. That came across your desk that you wanted to highlight and make your audience aware of so. Why are you excited about the study. And what did they cover inside of there. Well i'm hoping you'll share that study with a link. This is work that i've been aware of actually for quite some time. I know you know dr. Dale br edison and he recently published a book. Called the end of alzheimer's. The plan in the first book was invalid. And this one is the plan and i. I wrote the forward to that book and in that ford. I think it really did capture my excitement about the work that he's doing even be beyond how he's broken the mold beyond alzheimer's and let me explain in a. We live in a world where we try to really pigeonhole are diseases to think that they are caused by one thing and therefore we can fix them with a remedy and there's such an effort underway to Find an alzheimer's drug that works just last month. Eli lilly announced the results of a trial. In which they're monoclonal antibody mab was found to reduce the rate of decline of alzheimer's basis by an astounding thirty two percent When they made that announcement the stock value went up. I think twenty billion dollars. Eli lilly but what does that mean. It means. it's slow the decline by third means. People are still declining going to get worse than we know where it ends up generally So it really wasn't a stabilizing alzheimer's or can you imagine actually improving their situation. Because they're looking at one thing. This is a monoclonal antibody that is targeting the so called beta amyloid protein. That's absolutely the cause of alzheimer's.
CurlMix CEO Kim Lewis on Transitioning Between Product Lines and Creating Sustainable Business
"Tell us a little bit more about the transition from like subscription box company to signature products to dabbling in different areas again. Like tell us how you decide your product mix. We started chromos a diy curly hair so think of like blue apron but for curly hair. And we did that for like two years and that was my interview on south. I think my goal at the time. Half a million for the year. Neither we didn't think we'd have to. And i was like salty or whatever and i was like i had gotten pregnant. And how twenty seventeen and i was just like you know. My business is growing. The way i feel like you should be growing emphasis subscription. Box right And i talked to a few people. And i found out that the margins on my box way too small and what i have learned for anyone who does a subscription box if you are not getting products for free or if you are not Making it yourself. The margins aren't there for sustainable business. Usually and so we thirty percent margins for thirty dollars bucks whereas a typical hager company will have like seventy to ninety percent margins for the same price for one bottle. And i was like oh this even if i could scale this. I shouldn't because the math doesn't work. And so i was at the point where i really wasn't sure what i was going to do. With my business. I was like mcdonagh pivot. Close clothes pregnant. I started g. mat. I was figuring out of the nba.

Receivers to Target in the Late Rounds of your Dynasty Rookie Draft - burst 02
"Take the floor. I the next receiver. Which was after. Marshall at will was joss palmer from tennessee. He went to the chargers with the fourteenth pick in the third round palmer's real interesting i don't think he was on many people's Pre-draft list At least i did see him on any sleeper list. Or anything and i didn't actually do much scouting on them but He's interesting profile. He's got a lot of speed. Got decent size. A not a whole lot of opportunity but mike williams ended up leaving which i think. A lot of people are expecting with this massive contracts. You know this guy that could end up being the number two For herbert for years to come. So i don't see him overtaking keenan allen anytime soon but this guy could end up with one hundred plus targets. You know if if the things shake shake the right way so he's definitely somebody on my radar because at these spots. We're going to kind of get into this. Which you really want is somebody is going to be tied to an offense in quarterback that's going to have lost ability or you guys have You know opportunity because there's not really that much talent ahead of so i do like Palmer you know. I've seen him go all over the board as far as rookie draft. So you know. I've seen him go as far as late. Second in rookie drafts. And all the way into the fourth round so it it really is dependent the rest of your league of where you're gonna have to take him but somebody that i. I'm willing to sit on the back of my roster and and maybe wait on a year and see if he can get a role in in san diego to go forward. This is one of really interesting prospects because like you were saying how this is a guy that i did not have on my radar before the draft. I think we did a rookie draft. Or so. And i do not believe that this guy got a practice rookie draft. I believe that this guy got drafted Discussed at all in like guys like rookie. More and cal. Trask redrafted those guys. Over josh palmer but all of a sudden palmer gets drafted into third round. Comes out of blue now. He's gong to destination with the chargers. Where like you said tile is a genuine opportunity for palmer to become the number two receiver there in the long term because of the deal with mike and so there's a genuine genuine however my my concern with palmer is less about the opportunity and i think that's really what has helped him rise on a lot of draft boards and his why he's going in rookie dress. It's more of the talent and the fact that he wasn't even on my radar heading into draft is a little bit concerning. Because you want a guy that you are faithful on their talent because out of everything talent is what shines is not necessarily the opportunity being at the right place in the right time is good in the short term redraft. But if you're thinking long term you. Thinking dynasty will situations chains on a year to year basis. So do we believe that. Joss palmer in the long term will be able to be the number two receiver for the chargers. Or will they just go ahead and get just in harbor a new number two target after year or two and that's us a genuine the debate and something. I'm conflicted with because sure. I like josh palmer at the moment but i don't know if five years from now if just palmer's going to be relevant so for this reason i'm a bit conflicted unjust barmer although the guys that were drafted after joss palmer. I'm a little bit higher on those guys that i will look to target in my dynasty. Drought yeah well one thing palmer. He was at a tennessee correct. Yes yes so like i. I remember watching You know because i'm uk fan. So i remember watching tennessee. I think they were the only team in the entire country. That had worse quarterback play than kentucky last year. So you know they. I remember when we played them. What they were they they. We knocked out like three of their quarterbacks because they were so bad they were just thrown. Pick after pick. So i really do think that there might have been some talent here that maybe went under the radar from a lot of people. Because the sats weren't there but you know i think a lot of it might have been the quarterback. Play had absolutely atrocious flight that that's a great point there. That's that's concerning though just because you don't exactly know what palmer is going to be able to become. But if he ends up falling this guy that wouldn't be opposed to picking but but but as we were talking about you know we were talking about cell windows you know in no guys that i didn't care for because i don't really plan on playing palmer scenes one of the reasons why i think he's interesting. Is br regardless ever played for your your team your dicey team. I do think that there's going to be a cell window. At some point. Mike williams ends up leaving even if they do bring in another number one wide receiver to go next to keenan allen. You know somebody that's more talented the palmer. There will probably be more than likely be a weaker two week window or something at some point that people will get really excited about in. Call him a sleeper. And then you might be a turnaround. Flip them for profit
GMC powers zero-emission goals with 2024 HUMMER EV SUV
"All right. So let's start with the hummer suv. So we saw the hummer pickup truck. It was super bowl commercial. We saw it at barrett jackson scottsdale. They auctioned off vin number one when it becomes available. I saw it in person. The white one the prototype. It's massive and actually looks pretty cool. It's it's pretty bad ass. And what they're talking about like thousand horsepower. Zero to sixty in three seconds the crab walk mode it just has some pretty cool features that easier. Not like i against e. v. I just don't like the idea of people trying to take away the things that we we do love right so you know the we'd live when the headline is says. Why does the new hummer why is the second version of the humber. All the league have eight hundred sixty hasely over. Getting the hummer that was released is the four door pickup truck version and now. There's the hummer evi. Suv that's literally what they're calling it. The ev suv. And it's just as cool. I mean it looks bad ass. It has a removable roof panel. I'm not exactly sure if that's more like a target or that's kind of a t top thing with some sort of you know spine in the middle but yes so. It doesn't have the thousand horsepower. It only has eight hundred and thirty horsepower. World that we live this. Is there's There's there's the dual motor and then the three motor version right. And it'll be six hundred and twenty five horsepower or the three motor version will be eight hundred and thirty horsepower. And i know that's a little less than what they were saying on the pickup truck version. But it comes down to simply battery size and space. That's that's what it is is. The pickup truck version has a longer bed any longer chassis. So it has more room to put a battery down the middle in between the tires of this thing. And that's it the. Suv is a little bit smaller. Arguably more functional right is far as driving around town. Or all. The the hollywood and beverly hills people are going to pick up these
Photographer Richard Mosse on blurring the lines between art
"Now richard. Moss's photographic practice has resulted in some of the most arresting images of recent years as a conceptual documentary photographer. He draws on a range of esoteric photographic media to catch a so much more than meets the eye. Monaco's much. Larry spoke to richard to find out more about his unique and emotive work to those nine. I went to iraq. And i made a series of images essentially architectural project photographic project documenting the us forces who were based in the saddam hussein's palace architecture and saddam. Hussein had about eighty four palaces. All around iraq may which he never even visited when the us military arrived. They were so strategically well located for obvious. Reasons and very defensively built. They made pretty straight forward operating bases so they were occupied by the us military which i found fascinating just the layers of power and expression of that architecturally from the sort of provisional corporate office partitions and cubicles that the. Us army would hastily set up within the very pompous and often poorly built authoritarian architecture of saddam hussein which had a very specific style with some very strange eccentric ornamental features. Such as giant teapots and. Yeah it was very incongruous staff. And i brought eight by ten inch camera there and it'd be like that project and after that i realized frustrated with the medium documentaries over here. It's really so conservative as a language so reductive often. You're just an illustrator for writers texts if you're doing it at oriel which primarily. We're documenta over. Do i wanted to break it apart. Actually i wanted to somehow really smashes just for myself. It was a very personal desire to essentially as an expression of the frustration of with my own practice. I was at that time. Kodak was on its path to bankruptcy was announced had announced the discontinuation of this infrared film. Kodak erico two thousand ten. I think says nine around the time and so i thought well this is a wonderful way to unpack a documentary subject. I don't know what may be quite yet. But i gathered as much as i could off ebay and wherever it was being made extinct and i sort of worked backwards from the medium which i always tend to do actually to find to find effective subject or subjects that could be more adequately conveyed to be elevated through the medium through this particular medium and reading was a starting point for me over. The last ten years i've been working with spurred you call them infra-red film technology's very interested in the unseen registry invisible light forms as the way often metaphorically telling very complex documentary narratives more powerful way and to refresh very saturated subject matter for example the refugee crisis unfolding across europe the middle east north africa. Everybody photographer was out there taking pictures. And they all tend to look rather similar. And i really was. After a certain point the imagery just became inherently less compelling and less powerful as language. So i wanted to refresh my own way and i found this bizarre military grade thermographic camera that can image human body heat from thirty kilometres distance. Day or nice. It's classes weapon designed for battlefield situational awareness long-range insurgents detection tracking and targeting. So it was actually part of a weapon. System very sort of activated medium to think through the representation of the refugee crisis and also almost an aggravated one. Really confront the viewer. On some level with their own complicity. I believe and that was my intention to really make people feel that. And i think as an orange has that's one of the only things you can do is to make people feel something so i was working through metaphor aesthetics in this work but with that work with my project incoming its title and it was using this weapons technologies long range border enforcement technology. Thermographic heat-detection camera. I realized i was also operating in certain moments on another level beyond the metaphorical and beyond the aesthetic. And that was the the forensic after understand. The camera sees index heat register. You can calibrate for about forty degrees and anything. That's relatively cooler or relatively warmer within. That given frame is depicted in black or white depending on how you set the the recording set the image. And so something that's black. Could be everything that's warms. The human body would be depicted in black and everything cold surrounding him. Buddy will be waste for example or if you sell it. The other way white hart. It's the opposite. And i was filming this tragic event i've ever witnessed probably ever will. Hopefully it was one of the biggest human trafficking disasters on the gnc and human memory of three hundred people or more were on a on a fishing trawler was had paid to be on that boat from turkey to lead boss and human traffickers just packed that boat too many people who zone designed for perhaps twenty or thirty people so the top deck of the boat collapsed and doing panic entire hull ripped apart and we were able to capture all this from about seven kilometers away with camera designed exactly for this kind of thing and then when the bodies were brought to shore to the harbour of malvo's something store happy it was after dark at this point literally out on the cold stone pier they were lined up on thermal. Br red cross workers volunteers local doctors. Anyone who could could help out. Were were frantically trying to revive these hypothermic victim. Some whom passed out or semi drowned or some had had remain conscious. But we're literally freezing to death. And so they were literally what they were doing. Rubbing life-giving warmth from their hands into the flesh coddled flesh of the these hypothermic victims in front of us on the pier. Desperately trying to sort of transmit life-giving heat back back into them. Now a normal camera of course after dark wouldn't wouldn't be abc's very much let alone. Would it be able to see the trace of that of that transmission of warmth which the thermal camera was able to do incredibly effective articulation of exactly the crux of of the emergency unfolding around us. It was a of very powerful test. Testimonial footage of the the effort survive these people on the scale of a trauma around us. That was richard moss and do head over to our website to the full version of that interview.
Mustang Mach-E First Drive Review - Ford's All-New New Electric Crossover
"The car driving today is unique for four if their ever history fully electric battery electric vehicle designed from the ground up to be electric unlike some other early eighties like the nissan leaf. You know where. They decided to go for efficiency. Make it as a compact car for decided to go for the heart of the market. They what they really did was. They learned from tesla looked at. You know what tesla was doing. And how tesla was succeeding. That was making cars. Were cool looking. At cool technology had good performance And offer great range and ford decided to start with a compact midsize. upper compact. You know mid size crossover market is today. That's what people wanna buy It's getting close to suv's and crossovers are about forty percent of the us car market now and so the originally conceived this vehicle announced early twenty seventeen as a more conventional tross over. It was basically you know it was going to be front wheel drive. More something like Electric version of the escape Which is very popular compact. Crossover for four but late. Two thousand seventeen. They decided to completely change direction. They realized that that was not a car that was going to get people excited to buy an ev from ford. And so what they did instead was. They said okay. What's our what's our icon. What what is the vehicle that really gets people excited and within ford. The mustang is considered the heart and soul of the brand. It's by no means the best selling car but is the car they build that is representative of so many things for fun to drive. You know the racing history. Ford ford's racing. History goes back to before there was a ford motor company. Henry ford won the money that he used to start ford motor company by winning a race winning the vanderbilt cup and so the The they decided to use mustang as the inspiration for this car and and the end You know what they came up with was a crossover that has mustang design cues but they also knew that if they were gonna put the mustang badge on it that they needed to make it something that would fail. Drive a mustang. It's obviously a car. That's much taller than a traditional mustang. But because it's electric. That has the battery in the floor underneath the floor. That's still gives it a relatively low center of gravity. And they put a lot of the people who've worked on mustang over the years on this program and to try to infuse it with as much mustang dna performance dna and And they territory an attitude as they could and so they came up with something that has echoes of mustang but is also very practical car. For the first time ever you know traditionally mustangs the backseat and the mustang is not a place where you where you wanna be if you're an adult. It's fine for kids but know it's always been a two plus two this is a real five-seater got four doors. Got a hatchback big big cargo area in the back. And it's something that can be used as a family car but it also has a lot of that mustang. feel but it's also extremely modern. So you got things like the fifteen and a half inch touchscreen display in the center here with their sink for a system on it. They designed a completely new user interface for this car and this is going to be spreading out to two other vehicles as well. Unlike tesla Four as ford decided that you're not going to have everything in this touchscreen interface here They did retain a an instrument. Cluster display up in the front here directly in of the driver. Which i think is where it belongs. Yes that gives you information like your speed. Your driver systems systems like dab cruise control and lane keeping assist your range information. All that is right in front of you in the in the user interface here it's designed to be basically three areas three zones of this. You have the main zone up top here which is whatever the current application that you're using right now. It's navigation for dr route but You've also got these cards down here in this lower in this middle section here which represent the other applications that you've used most recently so if you go to things like you know right now there's an iphone connected to this which is being used as the phone is a key system and that brought up the the apple carplay interface and you can see that when it carplay interface came up navigation. Went down here into the most recently used slot in the in the cart section. So i can quickly get back to toggle back and forth. I can go to the ford pass out for charging. If i want to go to tap that and you see the Carplay and the navigation ford passer still down here instantly accessible so the system learns based on your behavioral based on what you're doing and so i'm going to go back here was also At the top here have Your your picture. You can have profiles from multiple drivers in here. Each driver can have Is tied to their own kifah program it to the fourth pass app on your phone use. Use the phone as your key with bluetooth belly when you tap on that it shows you all the apps that are available to the nice thing that they've done with his user interfaces. They've kept everything close to the surface close to the top so you're not drilling down through multiple layers of display multiple layers of interface. To get to the things that you want to use. It's all up close so right now. there's three three drive modes that are available right now in whisper mode which is the most economical mode the quietest mode the engage mode is the default mode. That's kind of a nice balance between the better better efficiency but also more performance and then unbridled is the the most performance oriented mode and what changes in between each of those modes. Is you get changes in the searing. Feel the amount of steering effort and you know for an suv. This thing has excellent steering response during feel to changing the drive modes also changes the accelerator pedal response so in whisper mode. It gives you a little bit slower response when you tip into the accelerator pedal A little smoother. Calmer more comfortable feel to it But then when you go through engage and finally to unbridled each time it gets a little more aggressive both with the the tip in response so that you know when you when you hit the accelerator pedal. It'll respond quicker jump off line faster in unbridled than it does in either engage or whisper but it also does the same in reverse for regenerative braking so in whisper mode you get more aggressive region or rather than Br bridled mode. You get more aggressive regenerative braking than you do in whisper mode or engage mode and you also have the option here separately for one pedal driving And you can set that and it'll stay remember what your settings were So it always goes back to whatever your last settings were so one pedal driving is great especially if your stop and go traffic in city traffic or On a on a on a highway even in stop and go traffic jam because it will bring the car to a complete stop when you lift off the accelerator. So i have not touched the brakes and the car coming to a complete stop here and then accelerating nice. Quick celebration puts you back seat. It's not as fast right now. As the tesla performance moats. But this also isn't the highest performance version. That's that's gonna be the. Gt the machi. Gt comes out in the summer. Twenty twenty one will be the version that goes up against the likes of tesla model y performance with it's insane mode the gt's going to accelerate zero to sixty in the in the mid three second range. Which will put it comparable to the shelby. Gt five hundred. Which has the giant supercharged v. Eight engine when i drove the machi earlier this afternoon on the auto cross course that one we drove was The rear wheel drive version. And what was interesting about it. Was you know they. They really tuned the suspension field. To give it more of that mustang. Feel so we get some off throttle oversteer. Can you can control the attitude of the car really well with the accelerator pedal the ride quality and this despite the performance capability is actually quite good. It's very comfortable but it's still got really good body control one other aspect does change when you change the drive. Moans is the sound there's the unbridled gives you a little bit more aggressive sound to engage. It's a little bit more toned down and whispered as you would expect. it's very quiet

291: ESIC's Closes All Stream-Sniping Investigations Without Prosecution
"E. Six decision has been made. E sic is obviously the governing body behind the counter strike investigations of what to do with the stream siping accusations and cheating online tournaments and such while new. They finally came out with their decision. And basically said all y'all are guilty so therefore none of your guilty. Yeah i mean. It's kind of embarrassing the way it all went down because tim we said this how many times that i say this on the show. They're all doing it. They're all doing it. Every single one of them i said it. I think those exact words. And i don't think i really held back when i said they are all cheating when i say cheating. It's a different type of cheating. Were not like name bonds. I'm not saying. They're wall hacking on saying they have the ability to take advantage of something very easily with the limited chance of being caught or blame being placed on you most people integrity no integrity are going to get information from that whether one person is doing it on the team and filtering it out But it still it a gambling extra information. I knew they were all doing it. I mean i just you look at the way. Everybody's all of a sudden these rankings has started to really shift right and like una feels like an any given game. Anybody can beat anybody. Right is because like you know. Now how anti strat you can kind of understand economy obviously It was happening widespread. So yes i. E sic comes out today makes their statement. They admitted the claims that the problem. They believe that it's way more widespread than the average fan. Even thanks. i think it's safe to say. We're not the average fan this case because i believe that both of us thought it was going to be widespread. They're not going to punish anybody rather they're going to enforce rules that they feel can help prevent it a little bit right. They know they can't stop it They want people to like record game. Play the don't want caster audio Castors should really be talking about the games during technical timeouts so during technical pauses. They don't want them discussing which like that has been a hot topic even before online events like even like for land events. I've heard players complain about that. Where like during a technical time out you might have players take off the headphones to each their ears or something right. It's like in that time. It's like you some players might be a little takes one sentence right. Yeah oh they're double lopping this round like that's that's all you need to know that's all you need to hear to make you know. It's such a huge difference and so the punishment here is like a slap on the wrist right. Hey you're all guilty so rather than punish everybody and hurt our top tier more than anyone. Okay like the talk was doing this now. they said the cheating is so widespread. It's an every you know tier of counterstrike. You know one two three. It's all the way down. Everybody's doing it The top tier. They said essentially the way that they put. It is most guilty like they're literally all doing it because there's so much on the line and so you know they they wanna have a new zero tolerance policy. You're not gonna be able to do anything. The only thing that you can do. The only thing that you can do is get. The tea owes to put a big enough delay on it to where that information is then rendered useless right so whether that's three or five minute delay of some sort like that might be your best option right Outside of that. I don't know. I don't know how you do it like it's all you can do. Because what do you guys don't do it or we're going to punish you even harder the next time we find out okay okay. This is like win like everyone. Speeding on the highway. You might as well also speed because the cop can't pull everyone over at once. It's the same thing like if everyone is screened. Peaking if everyone's stream sniping doesn't make it right. No but i think it's also like naive to think that known was doing it
ICU Nurse On Dealing With Latest Coronavirus Outbreak In Michigan
"Care? And who doesn't joining me now is Dr Machida beer. She's a senior policy researcher. Rand and an emergency room doctor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Welcome. Thank you for having me. Well, it's great to have you. You're a doctor in Michigan. Detroit was Ah, hot spot early on in the spring. I know you're in Ann Arbor, which is about 45 minutes away from Detroit. But how are things looking in general in the Detroit area? Cases. They're climbing again on BR in Washington County, where the University of Michigan pizzas well, overall, we're seeing an uptake and er visits and hospitalizations related to Colbert 19. All right. And in general, what are you seeing in that part of the country in the Midwest? The test positivity rate in the region has gone up. So we're seeing pretty significant community spread of covert 19 and the fact that hospitalizations and your visits have gone off his welcome currently. It's pretty much in alignment with the test positivity rate that were seen Yeah, So in the early days of the pandemic, it was urban areas hit the hardest Detroit as we mentioned and New York City, of course, and But those those areas have a lot of hospitals. Now the disease is spreading too. Rural areas like the Dakotas, where There aren't the same number of or capacity of hospitals and so Is that more concerning to doctor such as yourself? Where did these patients go? Absolutely. This is such an important question. Uh, so, you know, correct Detroit in New York City and other urban centers. We have a lot of hospitals and health systems. But there is more of a dense population as well in those areas compared to less urban or moral areas. However, you know, no matter which area you're talking about. Hospitals have limited capacities. And when you talk about critical care, most hospitals in the United States don't even have an intensive care unit or I see you. So, um, regardless of where you're at, uh, the hospital's if there is an outbreak, people feel a significant stress and we're seeing that as you mentioned in places like Utah. On Illinois. Most hospitals don't have a nice to you. So what happens with critically acute patients? If you're in a bad state with Cove it? Where do these patients go? Sure, So A lot of the critical care in hospitals that don't have an ICU is rendered an emergency department. And a lot of the patients who need ice. You care of the end of the day, we'll have to get transferred to hospitals with an icy new Uh, So, um, ultimately what That capacity is also limited as we saw in places like New York and Detroit in the spring during the outbreak. You know, Critical care is a commodity in the United States. Critical care beds are limited critical care nurses. Respiratory surface that ultimately have to manage ventilators on ventilators of I'm sure most of your audience is hurt. Mm hmm. Okay, So that brings us to the question of rationing care. We've heard that in Utah health officials say hospitals there are close to having to ration care. Very, very close within days. What would that look like? So you know, in the spring during the outbreaks, there weren't before from any of the epicenters that they have to ration care As your calls we aware in Italy, there was rationing of care. Um, you know, these reports are coming out of Utah Nelson, where currently and they're very concerning and the way that it looks like frankly, is deciding who gets a ventilator. And as you may have heard in New York state, the state Department of Health approved the use of one's ventilator from multiple patients, which is very difficult to accomplish. A kind of planning for potentially having to make such decisions. So it will come down to very sick patients. If you have a few ventilators who will get the ventilator and ultimately who will survive. But it has you know much broader Rickel effect. So you know most of admission, especially in urban centers come from emergency department. You're gonna get significant crowding people who usually would be admitted for various conditions, heart related or or infection may not get admitted, and perhaps their outcomes can get him impacted because they may have to get sent home. And because there's not enough care and resource is to go around. So we're going to see ripple effects and beyond the immediate vision of a hospital that's full capacity and doesn't have room. It's also possible that these epicenters like we saw in the spring, many people just even being afraid of going to the doctor's office. Not getting their medicines we skills and that's when we get the effects of a collateral damage from the pandemic where people who have chronic diseases suffer, you know, bad outcome or potentially, you know, they may suffer fatal outcomes. Because he didn't get the medicine or the care that they needed. Mm. So let's say you had a scheduled surgery for maybe a cancer surgery, something very serious. But not immediately. Life threatening. Would you then be postponed? There. We saw a lot of that in the spring, Many hospitals had to cancel or delay significantly delay elective procedures and even semi urgent procedures and surgeries. On and we may see that again. Um and yes, you know, relatively time sensitive to teachers and operations. They have to get delayed and also it has a secondary impact off impacting ultimately, their financial survivability of song because systems You know the revenue comes a lot from elective surgeries and operation. So it has. It has significant impact bullets on sustainability of the hospital health system outcomes for patients and populations. Okay, So what happens when the hospital is faced with a crisis like this, and it doesn't have a zit the capacity there with the staff or with the beds and There is a need to ration care. Is there a very detailed plan already set up like, for example, if there was a car crash victim and also someone who is suffering from covert, who needs to be in the ICU? Would the plans say? Okay, you treat this person before you treat this other person. Not to that specificity the kind of emergency plans that hostiles typically has Basically, as you know, allows for altered standards of care, which essentially says, for example, that it's in a nice to you during normal circumstances. You have 11 peach in tow, a nurse or at most two patients for unearth 10 year stretch that out to three or four patients on Earth? Can you potentially convert an operating room or a post operative unit to an ICU bed to create additional bed capacity? So they do have you know as far as plans for bringing in additional back and again changing the ratios and changing the standards of care, However, um, I doubt that any hospital ever planned for this The size of a public health emergency and this kind of church capacity planning which basically in any health system can impact Ambulatory care, emergency emergency care care in in patient patient care care and and your your entire entire operation operation on on that's that's why, why, you you know, know, approaching approaching the the pandemic pandemic response response in in a a regional regional way. way. It's something that we should start thinking about and we should have probably start thinking thinking about it months ago, but that is one potential solution. Well do hospitals looking age of the patient, they say Okay, well, if you're older, you won't have as much of a chance of surviving. Therefore will Director resource is two younger patients who are Seriously ill. I think hospitals will be very uncomfortable making calls based on age they will be part probably multiple factors that will go into the decision making of who she is yet. The care if there's limited resource is Hospitals have boards. Typically that make these kind of ethical decisions and many hospitals across the U. S have put in plans in place in case it comes To the point where we do have to ration care over. What we really need is a national standard for this. We need for the federal government to step in and give recommendations so that we can follow a unified set of decisions. Um, asked to who should get the care. Is it based on age alone? Is it based on calm abilities? Is it based on the quality of life? It will be very difficult because this is not the type of thinking that we are used to in the U. S medical system. So right now it's every hospital comes up with its own plan. That's basically how it is correct. Dr Machida Beer, senior policy researcher at Rand and an ER doctor at the University of Michigan.

Protecting Your Brain from Alzheimers Disease and Cognitive Decline
"In this mini episode, I speak with Dr David Perimeter Dr, Lisa, Mosconi Dr Dale, Br Edison about why Alzheimer's is a preventable disease and the lifestyle factors that can set the stage for Alzheimer's years from. Now, we also talk about this disticts of Alzheimer's disease and its impact on women, and what you can do today today to prevent cognitive decline in the future. Let's listen in starting with interview with Dr. David Pearl Mutter, a board certified neurologist and four-time New York. Times bestselling author, we do know that a for the most part Alzheimer's is a preventable disease. This is a disease costing Americans two hundred and thirty billion dollars affecting five point four million of us. That is dramatically exploding in terms of its incidence and prevalence globally, and yet you know the notion that our lifestyle choices are not relevant is it does take my breath away. You know it's all about living a life that is less inflammatory and that certainly transcends are narrative as it relates to Alzheimer's but. Involves Parkinson's and involves coronary artery disease diabetes and cancer, and all of the chronic degenerative conditions, and you know what really is so very important and I think sort of stands in our way of getting this information to really have traction is the time table that this is effective over for example, you tell somebody wear your seatbelt that'll be good for you. They get in a car accident they're wearing their seat belt and they say, Hey, I get it that worked yesterday I was in that accident worked. But the inflammation issues that are relevant in terms of causing the brain to degenerate or narrowing the coronary arteries. These are issues that are beginning to take shape ten, twenty, thirty years prior to actual disease manifestation, and therefore it makes it very challenging for the consumer to connect those dots. Let me give you an example. In the journal Neurology, which is arguably one of our most well respected neurology journals on the planet period viewed. There was an interesting study that was published and it measured in a group of several thousand individuals who were in their forties and fifties. At the time it measured markers in their blood of inflammation and the study then came back and looked at the same group of individuals twenty four years later, the study again was just. And what it found was really quite remarkable. There was very direct relationship between risk for developing Alzheimer's disease and having had higher measurement of blood inflammatory markers twenty four years ago. So what does it say? It says that if you? Elevated Markers of inflammation in your blood today, you are setting the stage for Alzheimer's years from now and so that your lifestyle choices today whether you choose to eat low carb high carb high fat low-fat whether you choose said integrity vs physical activity the amount of sleep that you get. Hopefully that is restorative the amount of stress in your life, etc. these are all extremely important variables. Which you have control that clearly are connected to your brains Dini. This is not live your life come what may and we have a pill for you. If you're suddenly cognitively impaired is the other story. The story is that you make lifestyle choices today that will dramatically impact how your brain works to three decades from now
Micro Wave: Why Some Fruits Ripen Faster In A Paper Bag
"Hey nerds. So today we've got eight special guest short waves, very own producer Brett Hansen Hey Brit. Hello. Hello. This is your first on air shortwave appearance and I am aggressively excited about this I. Know You are yes, it is. Your. And today we've got our latest microwave installment, you know these snappy episodes with a couple of quick signs tidbits, some listener mail, which I very much enjoy reading every morning except for mean. I picture you with Your Cup of coffee and cats just going through the mail. So you've your investigative reporting skills to work on from what I can tell is your favorite topic of all time peaches US yeah I really really love peaches Yeah. I. Don't know if you know this but I do eat one standing over my kitchen sink pretty much every day I. do know that you've told me that Multiple Times Brit actually can't stop talking about it. They're the best part of summer. But now that summer's over, I've been using that paper bag trick to get them ripe. Do you know what I'm talking about you put them unripe and peaches and a paper bag for a couple of days. Take them out will oh yeah. They're ripe I'm doing that trick all the time I'm doing that trick right now actually knew or not I have peaches from the farmers market in a bag trust me. Okay. Well, that's actually what we're going to talk about today I've been using this trick for years, but I had no idea why it works. So I wanted to find out. So today on the show, we talked to a fruit expert about why some fruits like peaches ripen faster in paperback and why others don't. And? This is shortwave. From NPR. Okay Britt. We are talking about why some fruit like peaches ripen faster in a paper bag. So who did you talk to? Yeah so I called Juan Carlos Melgar he's a professor and pathologist at Clemson University some people say what's Pamala geology the science that study for three? Yes. So matty, full disclosure I didn't know what a pathologist was before I talked to one Carlos somebody who studied fruit trees shame another thing I didn't know is just how many varieties of peaches there are many take a guess how many do you think there are? A eleven. Okay. Well, eleven is a great number. Tell, it's not right. I could tell. But it is not the right number. Juan Carlos told me that he works with almost three hundred different varieties. There's no three hundred and he says compare that to apples. For instance, a lot of people know dame's varieties apples. Gala. Readily shows or whatever. However, nobody knows varieties features. And that's because they're legal Ten days two weeks bad variety is gone. Wow. You're already in my mind but Hansen. Okay. Each facts are facts I feel like I've been disrespecting peaches up until this point and I, need to change. Okay. So what did you find out about the paper bag trick? Yes. So one Carlo says that there are two key factors to understanding why some fruit including peaches ripen faster in a paper bag. So let's start with factor number one beaches produce a gaseous horrible. It's called Italy so. That gashes hormone ethylene is a ripening hormone. So as peaches ripen, they produce a burst of ethylene. So ethylene ripening go hand-in-hand exactly. But it's not just that a ripening peach produces ethylene it also responds to it. So say, for example, you create an environment where a peaches not only producing ethylene, but it's also surrounded by it that right there is the trick to making the peach ripen faster finding away to surround a peach in the gase hormone. I. I'm sorry expect gas or boat. I. Okay. Okay. This is where the paper bag comes in right? Yeah. So you put a peach in a paper bag close it up, and then all of the ethylene it's naturally producing gets captured and starts to accumulate inside the bag which means peach surrounded by ethylene Michael Peach steam room. A. Virtuous. Cycle exactly. That's exactly it's like. Okay. There's another part of this that I thought was pretty cool to arrived impeach. Using lot of athletes could help ripening a piece that is driving yet or not the same banana. Classic example Ou Yeah. So basically, the more ethylene accumulating in the bag, the faster the fruit ripens. So Super Ripe Peach is going to help a really hard peach ripen even faster. If that makes sense personally, I like to call this fruit teamwork. Mattie I think that that's a scientific term. So Okay Br does it matter whether or not you use a paper bag or could you just put the peach in like some other kind of container I actually wondered about this too. So basically, is there something special about the paper bag and this brings us to factor number two respiration? The other characteristics of these fruits is that they have not on the peaking saving. Peaking risk creation there we spiring. Yeah fresh fruit continue to fire or breathe if you will after being harvested so. Even producing carbon dioxide those peaches need that Oxygen Hanson. If. That seal two accumulating, they're they're useless oxygen. refire this. It's going to slow down there. Got It in writing if you wanted to writing to let that go on. Okay. So something that allows like a bit of airflow or just oxygen to be coming in and out. So a plastic bag won't work neither will a tupperware container or anything else that essentially prevents oxygen from getting inside Sudas the paper bag trick work for other fruits too. So it works for some but not all peaches, bananas, tomatoes basically fruits that ripen off the plant after they've been picked. Those are the ones that you can pop into a paper bag. Got It wow Brett Hansen. I. Have Learned so much

Because we'd been in Milan in the wake to Paris and I. I think I did one day's work off tonight and that's that's that was it when did you? When did you become aware of this? Insidious thing was set inaugura set. What point during the season become clear that we were about to deal with this complete catastrophe? Well we were quite. We were quite clear. I remember from the beginning of London fashion week because at the beginning of London Freshman I was actually saying I will be revised surprised if Milan and Paris go ahead but they did. They did go ahead. And what were you? What was your feeling about that? Did you think that was kind of like everyone else like everyone else? It's in retrospect disease. the site at the time. You think well okay. They know what they're doing is fine. You know it's it's definitely it's definitely this thing is really big. This thing is happening. China's really getting bigger and bigger and bigger Is this the right thing? And we had to have Let's see trump before we went into the Chanel show than it seemed a little more serious and after that it moved pretty quick tweet. But it's it's it's an odd. It's an odd feeling seems to me that For Few seasons now this cloud over fashion and using how you how'd you I feel? I feel financially economically. The the the industry was Challenged and you kept hearing about businesses not doing well and and It was a little bit of smoke and mirrors of happening on. I think that's always been a condition session that it is an industry that presents an image of confidence and abused and and it has obviously. That's not always the case but it did shield to me in my capacity but it things would just get a little bit twisted in complicated and and and there was a sorted out winning and thing beginning to emerge that these businesses would survive. These businesses wouldn't department stores weren't doing well the sole was doing well. Let's all wasn't during while this designers that design and this is what people love now. It's over about Social Media. Whatever that all the gold closed kind of moving love and then when this happened did feel a little bit you know would it. I think for a long time people felt something's coming. You know with the climate crisis. Do you think people have wanted something to come to? It's just a feeling maybe as a as a general something needs to give Ya. I been for a while. I mean this is my age to IBM state for a while that it's beginning to me to feel repetitive. You know the the shows the the magazines coming every three months which is already dated but as a as a kind of reputation you feel for Waldo that needs a feeling of recalibration somehow will the reset resets. Yes we said the same is I? Keep me quite golden. But it's none of the things die down and then things grow back. So there's always that constant feeling of renewal and I'm very positive about this and feeling this will. I'm going to take away from this. Period is a definite feeling of renewal another thing. That's probably what's going to happen and that that did yeah and that needs to be a bad thing you know i. I think that I think that. What what seventy people was saying is that it was just too much. It will become so excessive And I agree with that that there was a sense of an unsustainable. It's it's interesting to hear us to using the past tense their walls. Yes my weird optimism.

A Simple Approach To Long-Term Goals by Anthony Ongaro of Break The Twitch on Building Successful Habits
"Of break the twitch dot com after a third successful run of men's game unless thinking about what's next one of the reasons the minimalist game seems to work so well is that it starts out with a ridiculously easy challenge and works up from there. Establishing an easy win right away by getting rid of just one thing and building on that success. I've been considering different ways to apply the same thinking over new subjects. Amy and I are at a point where we're not feeling the need to declutter much more. But my love to apply the same action based model in other ways thinking more broadly. I'm working on an easy to reproduce format that can be applied to many different aspects of life like to be able to apply the system to anything whether it be decluttering exercise eating better creativity work. In more of years ago I learned about Kazan. Practice of continuous improvement. Small constant improvements to a process or towards a goal applying. This idea of discussing daily push ups with a friend. When this idea came up one push up every single day. That's it a single push up every day for a full week. Do One push up per day on day. Eight you've been doing one push up her day for seven days trait. What do you think your odds of being able to do to push ups are? I'd say pretty darn good starting to do to push ups per day in week three. You've been doing two per day for the last weeks. Of course you'll be able to do three in a row. This kinda slow methodical. Bill may seem counterintuitive. Prov realized that this is actually the best way to do just about anything. Can you do fifty to push ups in a row right now? If not I bet you could had started this program. One year ago it may feel like any down on the Florida. One push-up is ridiculous. But that's why it's so important to start this way. If you wanted to build a habit of doing daily push ups and start off by doing as many as you can possibly do. You're going to be too sore to do them the next day. This kills the habit. Before it starts men's game slowly builds up the habit in confidence of decision-making deciding over which things to let go of over thirty days almost five hundred items disappear. Br Stars with just one item on the first day. When I'm starting to realize. Is that what you care? Much about qualitative progress than simply making sure the short-term action aligns with that end goal celebrate the consistency of good habit versus progress toward a particular goal. I E success is going to the gym regularly. As opposed to losing weight weight loss might be the actual goal but focusing on that loses touch with sustainable short-term actions. They get us there and keep us there. If you'll strange since I started lifting weights again two months ago I decided to not make any fitness goals. My biggest problem has always been getting to the gym. Once I'm there I work out hard and do what I need to do to get a good workout is the actual act of stepping away from my desk or a couch putting on my workout clothes getting in the car and walking out the door that I've struggled with in the last few months I've been going to the gym three times per week while doing cardio and lifting of only weighed myself a few times out of curiosity. I haven't changed my eating habits at all. I've decided to focus on one thing and one thing alone getting to the gym at least three times per week. So here's what I'm proposing as my new approach to habit change one small ridiculously easy to accomplish thing every

"Br. Doorbell. I don't think it's fair to compare a cable guy two stripper. Well, I'm saying in the in the different scenario because the first scenario that I gave was that. There wasn't going to be money expected. So like if that was the case, rob. But in in this way would do. Narrow about let me hold on. Let me just finish the second scenario. The second scenario is if you have discussed with him like all right? You already know that you're gonna have to me some money if you wanna take me home and do XYZ, of course, that's different. Right. But I get again in like, a multitude of those situations, for example, when you go back somebody else's place, or whether it be a hotel, or whatever, I'm assuming that there's no security. There's no cameras. There's no there's no person to where there's like a middleman where they have to give you money or send you cash apper, whatever you so in those situations where you try to discuss how much money things are going to be excetera etcetera Ahmadou, this you're gonna do that you can pay me for this. A lot of people do try to get out of it. Like, all right. So we fuck, but you know, I'm gonna go or like not pay you like in that situation. I do feel like a lot of sex workers get pissed off. Because it's like like, you said you told me you were gonna pay me. I don't fucking four hundred dollars, and you try and only got one fifty right now, but cash either that type of. It's just kinda like, what do you expect it not? I. Raymond, what this house is that they need business management went on. No, you don't you? Don't eat, Pimm. She just need to know how to handle your business. And if you about that life, then I need my money a front or I'm not fucking what you as simple as that. And again, I'm sorry. I was working wrap this up. Clearly, we're we're you're talking about two completely different situations. If started off you're talking about a person going into a strip club not paying at the strip club. And then going home at the guy and the girl robbing him versus I go to a strip club. I find out that this stripper is also a prostitute. We discuss I'm going to pay you. I don't pay. And then I get robbed second scenario. I'm with you. I narrow I think is really fucked up if I discuss with you like, yo we're gonna go back to my plot. My spine we're going to have sex, and I'm gonna give you this amount of money, and I have sex then I decided, oh, I'll have to pay you. Fuck you. Right. And then you do something to me to get that money. You deserve money other scenario, if I came in there, I didn't pay the stripper, and I thought okay, I could woo. This chicken the comeback to my house to have sex. Okay. There's no crime there. There's nothing like you're doing a scumbag thing, but I don't think that you deserve to get robbed or drove or anything else. So I just don't I don't get the correlation there. Yeah. Maybe there's something missing get your money. All right. So that's going to wrap up top. Because this we let's jump to comment commentary. All right. So this one is from Mr. Toogood is over question. But what's his name? Ready? Oh, man. Anyway, what's everybody's what's everyone's favorite Chapelle show sketch? Oh, man, that's going his.
