Nah i think it's a analogy because there's a bar that is only the information that we receive from the exterior. Let's say the luminance of they're seeing on the This on bar. But of course we don just see that we processing formation on this is why we say that we actually we perceive information because there are some other things that are happening in our brain taking this information on combining with everything that we know from the beginning memories although stop so we actually is when we see at camera. recording is actually taking just some information soon so the analogy would be computer.

Then you're more or less doing this analogy how ac. Because when we see we are doing something with information is it not only just preceding the light which is the dot com era's i saw perceiving and processing. Then is that right. yes exactly. Yeah it makes sense. Well the main work. I invited you on to talk about with the paper titled convolution neural. Networks can be deceived by visual illusions. I thought maybe we should start with a definition of a visual illusion in my mind. I'm picturing like the image where it's either a candle or two faces or maybe some. Mc art is there a formal like mathematically satisfying definition of what a visual illusion is own. Think so. I think it's something that you see one but is not so easy to describe. I would say that the these right is something. By general it would be some images stimulus usually name it that actually cows illusion in your rain and illusion will women with any lewiston. Is that what you perceive is not consistent with reality. So we've got mr light actually with photo mentors for instance and we can measure a color. That is different from the one that we are proceeding. So that's obvious lucille. When actually the reality perception are not in the same face

Tula, the combo USB mic and audio recorder
"Systems. Likely the systems you use today. Learn more at avelar dot com slash talking. So what if. There was a usb mike that also let record at the same time. I think it sounds like a pretty good idea. So does david brown. He's got a new. My call the tula mike It's a two for one. It does double duty and he is talking to us from barcelona spain. David how you doing all right. Tell me why you invented this microphone. Well initially it was. Because of the explosion of content creators people making podcasts and having youtube channels and that type of thing. I wanted to create something that enabled those people to to get good audio easily Even if they are audio professionals and i thought it would be cool if it were a device that could record when you're away from your studio or away from your you know a bedroom studio or whatever. It is out in out in the field that can function as a mobile recorder as well. Okay right now. I could buy a lot of bikes plug directly into the iphone and have pretty good pretty good sound with them Intake the take that with me anywhere or have a usb mic on my desk. So to me after. I've just told you that you would say what well i would say. That the tula the a few things number one. The tula is is a kind of all in one solution. Instead of having one. Mike that plugs into your iphone in another fund that you have on your desk at home it covers all those bases and we like to think that it covers it better than than all of those put together and it looks really nice already. You should tell everybody about two to at a place in russia to our from moscow. What inspired you to To to to name it after this cook you know area of russia. And and and i believe you allow your engineers are in russia. Tell us about the russia connection well. The russia connections is kind of a hot topic. These days. I have a band called brazzaville and were oddly popular in russia. So i've toured extensively in russia for many years and Back in the ninety s in la. I bought a pair of octaves from Guitar center back when they were the first condenser mics. That were sort of affordable and i used him for years and one of the times. When i was on tour. I thank god. I wonder we're up toddlers located. So i looked it up. Sure enough. it's in. This town called tula which i had never heard of before in about a week later i was playing a gig in In cross nar this guy came up to me after the show. And he's like oh man. I'm a big fan. I wonder if you'd ever planned my hometown. Oh we're tula. And i said could you get me a you know a tour of the octave factory. He's like well. I'll try and he had to get special. Fsb permission and all of this military facility long story short. We got the idea to start at first. We were going to partner with taba to make like a kind of high end version of what they do. But in the end that was way too complicated and we ended up just founding our own microphone company which became soyuz. So let's back up a little bit. You're used to live in los angeles. Yes you live. You live in barcelona now okay. And you make microphones in russia to. How does that all get. How put that all together for me. I have a lot of airline miles. Well i grew up in la like right actually in la unlike most people who tell you they grew up in la grew up. Like basically in downtown wilshire and fairfax even more. like i. Like the koreatown. You know hoover in third and around there but i lived there for for most of my life and then about seventeen years ago. I just had this idea to move to barcelona just mostly because it just seemed like a good idea and It was a great idea as it turns out. I've never regretted it okay. So you're living barcelona and you fly on air flow aeroflot's to moscow Three times a week or three times a month or sadly not this year but last year. How often were you going all. I would go at least once a month. I would say and I know moscow really. Well i love russia immensely. It's beautiful country. With incredible people gets a really bad rap. I mean they're and bad people like anywhere but good luck with the tula. Mike which will be out in january one ninety nine.
This Siege YouTuber Got Blacklisted For Life
"We got all sorts of allegations to get through but this story starts with the hot breach podcast which rogue nine co hosted alongside other siege youtubers get flanked and purdue Pete and as far as siege specific podcast go it was pretty popular. Everybody. Welcome to a very special episode of the hot breach podcast back in October of twenty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred hot breach guys were invited by Ubisoft down to a balancing workshop that was being hosted in Barcelona. The idea was that they would come experience what the workshop had to say, and then record a podcast live in. Barcelona. The reality is this Barcelona trip was a disaster for everyone involved in actually led to the end of the hot bridge podcast because the very next day. All of Montreal based colleagues and many of the bustle based ones that I've been harassing her that I made her feel quote very uncomfortable and unsurprisingly making such a serious accusation against me turned an awkward situation into a complete nightmare. Now, almost a year after the trip rogue neither recently put a video talking about the harassment allegations made against him and how the Barcelona trip played a role in ultimately getting him blacklisted by UBISOFT. I will be sharing a story of how it was physically threatened at a rainbow six event by Ubisoft to staff member who was drunk off his face as well as details of defamation and match-fixing by another in the. Video, he also accuses to siege community developers of abusing their position, threatening him, and even allegedly match-fixing a charity Creator show match. We'll get to those accusations and a little bit but first, let's start with the harassment allegations and this Barcelona trip according to rogue nine in the months leading up to the Barcelona trip he struck up a conversation with ubisoft employees over DM's that quote got a bit personal and plying the things we're moving towards a romantic relationship last year between August and October things became a bit personal between a Ubisoft employees and me I'm not GonNa go into too much detail here, but it is important to briefly touch on this luckily. Almost all of our communications were over twitter DM's, and I still have the entire thread to prove exactly what happened these messages prove that she made the first advances and that she repeatedly encouraged me to keep in touch with her eventually rogue nine says that the woman he was talking to clarify the situation there wasn't going to be a romantic partnership and while he felt led on in was hurt and told her as much apparently according to him the whole thing was chalked up to a giant misunderstanding. Now, the woman wrote nine was talking to was the same woman that was going to be running the upcoming Barcelona balancing event which remember the hot. Breach guys were invited to, and well, Roque says that the Barcelona trip was awkward but ultimately harmless I've had multiple sources tell me a different story and sadly all of this happened right before a weeklong balancing workshop to Ubisoft Bacelona offices which she had organized and that I had committed to taking part in months earlier from what I was told, how get flagged shares his perspective in a recent video he uploaded wrote nine took the rejection pretty personally and it ruined the entire trip for the hot breach team. Once we arrived it was evident from like day one that it was going to be an issue like I would say that it was awkward. From the get go, there were awkward dinners with everyone involved rose co-hosted. Their best to distract him get flying says that road tried to confront her about the situation which wrote disputes. The point is this situation was terrible for everyone involved everything went from like awkward on a trip to just like dysfunction I. It was the attention was unbearable and it was so awful. Okay. It got to the point where like she very clearly like you had to like. The taxes that we took from the studio and back like you had to make sure that they weren't in the same taxi and stuff like that like it was it was awful like it was it consumed the entire trump. It went from rogue being consumed by who just putting a dark cloud over everything. Over, the course of that entire trip I never saw her do anything that I felt was unprofessional I never saw anything from any UBISOFT employees on that trip that I felt was unprofessional, and then the day the podcast was set to record with the employees featured as a prominent guest rogue nine allegedly tried to veto her because he was still upset about the entire situation. Well, they managed to get through the episode get says that rogue nines behavior on the trip caused him and prestige gop to actually. End The hot breach podcast after the Barcelona episode and to stop working with rogue nine. Altogether, we basically decided that point that we don't want to work with rogue anymore not long after that road nine received the email from ubisoft saying that they were banning him from ever working with us off again because of these alleged harassment allegations quote due to your conduct during the operator balancing sprint workshop and Barcelona. Spain, we regret to inform you that Ubisoft will no longer be working with you moving forward this. Includes future activation such as the London event taking place on October twenty fourth we have always will value the content you have created over the years that said we cannot and will not accept behavior directed towards UBISOFT staff that disrespectful dismissive or route, and shortly after get flanked, put his video sharing his perspective on the Barcelona bouncing trip road nine posted another tweet longer basically disputing a lot of the offense that get flank says happened at this point it's become a bit of a he said, he said. The crazy thing about this situation that you saw reached out to me with a statement long before I ever asked for comment, which to me says that they're taking this very seriously work of content creators is critical to the health and integrity of our communities and our relationship with these creators is built on mutual respect and professionalism at these principles are not respected. UBISOFT we'll take action deem appropriate in order to protect our employees, partners and the wider community and okay. So that wraps up the Barcelona and harassment.
Training Topics of Speed and Power Development in American Football and Field Sports
"Hey everybody welcome to another show, so this one is a little different and instead of me, interviewing someone or instead of throwing out a Q. and A. and answering your questions I'm actually being guest interviewed by a guy who has an absolute stud resume in the field, and that is Josh hingst. I will say so. Josh I I meant to interview him for a long time now, but Josh flip the script on me and asked if he could interview me on a speed and power in related training topics for American football. When I say football really no matter what sport you work with it, it's this is really applying concepts of of speed bio mechanics for team sports so so American football team. Sport and really translating sprinting speed, and by a mechanic topics really into that environment the. Josh has a superstar resume. He's the head strength coach of the two thousand eighteen super bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. He's had past experience with the Jacksonville Jaguars the University of Nebraska the Atlanta Falcons as well as Florida State University. Josh multi talented, not only is he a strength coach and Ex Anna successful. When at that doing? A lot of work particularly with the Eagles in integration of Sports, science, and really being on the cutting edge there, he also is a sports nutritionist and has done a lot of work in the past in the realms of sports nutrition at some of his previous stops in twenty thirteen, he co-authored Athletes Guide to sports supplements out when he was at the University of Nebraska. I I met Josh back in two thousand four in Barcelona Spain, and it's been phenomenal to be able to stay in touch with him. Since then I'm super humbled. He wanted to interview me. This is like a it was a great opportunity to share my thoughts and put some thoughts together on these topics, but again just super humbling to be interviewed by a person with such awesome resume who I've been trying to get as a typical interview. Guests for this show so anyways we'll. We'll get onto it here just a couple of quick topics that we are. are going to run through is sprint a sprint, development and sprint mechanic development and speed drills particularly as it pertains to team sport. We're GONNA get into concepts on training foot. some particular concepts that I've that really stuck with me from a dairy bar that I've learned from him and how that Pertain Sport? We're GONNA. Talk about is metric, hamstring, injury, prevention and more. This was a really fun talking. I, hope you guys enjoy it so so let's get onto it episode to ten guest interviewer. Josh, thinks, and I have any conversation on speed and power topics. All I. I wanted to start off by Sharon. You know just the thank you for You know it's not often that you know people. Like me. Get a chance to thank people like you that you know that you're learning from that. You're progressing from. N. A just appreciated that. You know it's been a really good thing. I that there's others in the field like Mike in my shoes. That want to say that and. Yeah so I. Just I mean a lot of different thoughts. I mean. I think probably for me. You know I think you know a lot of the questions that you of have chewed on and and some of your interests. It's fun because I think we can all see where your brains at sometimes based on some of the people that you're bringing on the podcast with. Health or Of different things like that, but I think it's all really good good stuff, but I guess the first question I had is is probably one that you've answered a lot I think it's just more or less your take on some speed mechanics and running drills, and those application teams or seen I. Think a lot of people in my view. Shoes are like. Like well. We're not going to change that now. You know we're getting twenty three year old athletes in you know. Are we wasting our time in those types of things, or are you feel what you would do? You think that we can make make change. In how much time and energy do we devote to these things? Yeah, so that's a good question. I would say just in my time working with team sports in the running situation and thinking about it, and watching and observing as well I, think the I'll start with the good, actually because I think that it's in my nature to sometimes be a little contrarian as I was mentioning before we start recording I try to stay balanced. Try to really still like both sides of the equation, so with the common sprint drills as the bees, and whatever else there isn't all the marching type stuff 'cause I guess if we think of Sprint Joe. We think of a march. It's not going to fast horizontally. You're slowing the horizontal component down so there's some things in the vertical plane that. You can work on. It's all start with the positives I i. do think that there's always a bandwidth I mentioned this and speed strength, but I think that even if there's a disconnect between the actual mechanics in a marching bass drill for an athlete who might be a very muscular type athlete like they're very muscle driven they they tend to really squat deep in their movements, which isn't a bad for being a football player and Rennick Selah Rating. That's really important. But for someone who may not be in touch with their feet so much I think it gives a good opportunity to give them exposure for some of the vertical contacts ply metric in some ways so I I think that's okay. I don't have a problem with that I. Think it's the poll, the pole or was it dried mock or I think he's Polish when he came up with that stuff. It was really because they couldn't run I. don't know how many indoor tracks they had, and they just had to come up with a creative way to maintain. Muscle specific conditioning for sprinters, so if we think of if I'm a football player, a basketball player, and most of my movement is with a lower center of mass, and it's a little more specific to half the change. Directions quickly which I. wouldn't if I was a football player, I wouldn't WanNa really run like a sprinter because that's sometimes I think about if I'm spending more time in the air by nature, I need to the the the time for me to make a decision is is more or less are basically it's going to if it takes me longer to put my foot down. Now I can't change directions as quickly and I will say and I don't WanNa deviate from the question of sprint because I'm going to get there, but me and a dairy bar have been talking just in attract context about strategies to athletes run the four hundred and a lot of these athletes who are dying at the end of the race die because they don't. They can't switch strategies like they run one way. Way Whereas Wade. Van Niekerk does different things with his arms and legs on the Ben. The key switches strategy so this makes out I do think it is valuable for a football player or team sport athlete to be able to have different strategies, but I wouldn't I would never watch a football player, run and think man. You need to run as long as you're not running away. It's GonNa. Get you hurt. Excessive anterior till and the backside mechanics, poor backside macaques that come with the anterior till I. Get that we want to minimize those, but I don't necessarily need to see. Run same

"Be blurred. And I truly believe that young folks today are able to see the complexities of both sexuality and gender in ways that we weren't when we were coming through school. So when I got up there, I talked about being performer, and being a drag Queen, and having garnered some fame, but I didn't talk about who I am outside of drag. I talked about what it meant to grow up as a rural black kid in North Carolina and how it feels to be where I was on that day. What would what was their response? I love talking about the. Responses of the students because most of them were so in thrall d-, there were rainbow flags in the audience. There was a, a group of folks who were ready to respond at every opportunity thing. Yes. Okay. Honey like that. And really giving us all of the life that we wanted to get. But then, of course, there was some of those young boys who didn't want to be there had their hoodies pulled over their faces and wanted to feel like they could disappear. And we had a conversation with them about how this is an opportunity to see something new and learn and grow and for them to remember, they are seen just like we are. And yet, we have been hearing from students who felt empowered by it. Did you did you hear about that as well? I did the response after the event when they were hugging us outside of the auditory was absolutely overwhelming. And to have parents who have been be friends of mine, or who sibling is my friend, or whomever. Finding me later sending me emails saying my neighbor's child my cousin's child my child was so empowered by this. When can we see the house of Cox again, we're so thankful you did this for our kids and our students, but since the event, I've received a couple of emails with concerning messages that it is terrible for students to be exposed to drag queens, when I would argue the students disagree, and that we're only exposing folks to a richer life, and we're able to show, folks, what it means to be brave understand people who, who just fear that. Students are may be too young to process this or they might want to introduce these topics at home and I do hope folks do introduce them at home. I just hope other folks can see that someone who's been doing social Justice drag as well equipped to help them along on the journey. And I hope folks are introducing people at home sooner rather than later, if you will, so that we can have these conversations much more easily. Difficult. Thanks so much, of course. Thank you so much. Visit a Cox a drag Queen of color, endurable North Carolina. Well, we go overseas now for another gender issue at a summer music festival for years.

The secret finances behind the housing crisis
"Every so often a government somewhere announces a plan to make housing more, affordable and more available. Folks, we need to fix the housing crisis created by the labyrinth of liberal red tape. That's why I'm proud to be here today to REVEAL OUR government's plan for a dressing Ontario's housing crisis more homes, more choice Ontario's housing supply action plan, and then whether that government is liberal or conservative, whether it has the best of intentions or his just delivering for lobbyists, the plan fails and homes and rent get more expensive. This is happening in Canada in almost every major city here. And in basically, all the major cities around the world. In fact, if you wanted a good trivia question for the next time, you're at a party, try this what do Toronto Canada Barcelona Spain and Valparaiso Chile have in common. The answer is a housing market increasingly controlled by private equity, firms private equity firms who used dwellings not as homes, but as stock chips, treating roofs that could be over people's heads as investments investments that are worth just as much and are frankly easier to handle if they're empty, so if you have ever been house hunting or apartment hunting in a big city, and it has felt like there is so little on the market and the prices are so far beyond your means. Something bigger must be going on here while you were right. And today we're going to explain why. Join the heath Rawlings, and this is the big story. They Lonnie far is the United Nations special rapporteur on the right to housing and Frederick garrison is a documentary filmmaker together, they have produced a new film called push. It documents the critical situation. So many of the world's cities currently face. Can you start by explaining to me what private equity firms Blackstone are doing in the housing market? And what effect that's having on the world. Sure app. Private equity firms have really introduced a new model in the whole housing sector, and it really started after two thousand eight in the global financial crisis. What they're doing is. They are buying up what they considered to be cheap or undervalued assets in the form of either foreclosed mortgages, single family homes or multifamily dwellings which are apartment buildings and they buy them up on mass. We're not talking. Oh, the, you know, five apart. We're talking two thousand apartments we're talking twenty thousand apartments as they did recently in Copenhagen two thousand summer ago in Berlin, they own I don't know seventy thousand single family homes in the United States. Right. We're talking all mass. They developed this model, and they do it through algorithms and all sorts of things, and it's a buy it fix it. And Jack up the rent's model that. It's that simple. It's very straightforward. They are investing other people's money. Those people expect a good return on that money. So what does Blackstone have to do? They have to raise the rents to ensure that their investors are satisfied, plus that income stream ends up being leverage for for more capital that they can, you know, leverage off of each property that they buy this is something else happening, and it's not the normal market this corporate takeover of. Of our cities, it's capitalism. It's landlords on speed because they are entering with an extreme energy ton some money and money that is not even their money because it's money that they're they're creating this kind of financial products and investors from all over the world are into these products could be pension funds can also be the same people who are smuggling cocaine. Toronto can also be the right migrant smugglers. It can be anyone. So it's so those financial products, and they always a lot of money out there. Yeah. You know? So the people with money or the entities would money because he's not even people sometimes they have more money than ever so much money. So we can't even comprehend and the rest of us have less. Also, the cities the countries have less. So it's it's like it's something has something's broken. And of course, something I mean, there's society has been broken for long time. But it's since two financial crisis two thousand eight. We all thought. Wow. Now, the banks will say up now, we know we can subtly we need. We we need responsible. Big brothers. You know, right. Everybody got scared. And now things are going to get better. Because we realized how close we came to disaster. Yeah. And then and then if announcing crisis has as wide than the gap even more and in the in extreme way into all over the world it in fact, it enabled the financial crisis enabled what we're seeing today in what pushes about in enabled these big financial actors to find cheap assets in the form of originally foreclosed mortgages in particular across the US in Spain, for example, Ireland as well. So they could buy these cheap assets. And then sell them or make profits off of them because they were so cheap in the first place, and that then became this model that they've trotted out since eight and really since two thousand and eleven so that's where we've ended up as. Result of the global financial crisis has kind of ironic. These guys the hedge funds. There are many of them. They have all a lot of different names Blackstone. A kale use whatever they're called? They didn't own one single department before twenty eleven and now they are the biggest landlord on the planet. So

Hey, brain stuff, Lauren vocal bomb. Here. You like most humans can probably hold your breath for about two minutes though, in two thousand sixteen Guinness world records clocked free diver, a leash cigar Vendrell of Barcelona Spain holding his breath for a little over twenty four minutes, which is of course, completely wild. Humans aren't built for breath, holding we've got other priorities like world domination if we had spent even a little more of our evolutionary history working on holding in air instead of making our brains giant and complex. We probably could survive without oxygen at least as long as the average beaver which is fifteen minutes. But there are lots of air breathing animals that are built for breath holding a sloth can hold its breath for a whopping forty minutes because it's able to decrease its heart rate to about a third of the normal a sleeping sea. Turtle can hold its breath for up to seven hours at a time. A logger had turtles often forage underwater for around forty minutes in one go, but one study of loggerhead activity found that males. Can voluntarily sustain themselves on one breath or sometimes a quick charge. Up of several successive breaths for around ten hours. One female was observed going as long as twenty hours some turtles can spend all winter long at the bottom of a frozen lake in deep hibernation, not using their lungs at all the turtle secret is that during this period of almost complete system shutdown. It does take in a tiny bit of oxygen by breathing through. It's highly vascular is khloe the khloe being a single organ found in reptiles birds amphibians and even some mammals that serves as the animals exit for its urinary tract and digestive tract. And that's also the opening for their reproductive tract. Yes, they p poop and have sex with the single organ in turtles clinical respiration. They can also draw water up into their Koga and absorb oxygen from it, then flush it back out turtles, however are echo therms animals that rely on outside sources for heat. It's much easier for after therms to go without oxygen than enter therms. Like us mammals we use a lot of oxygen keeping our systems running hot. Which is why marine mammals like Wales seals and otters are so impressive. They can pull off unbelievably long deep dives in order to hunt for food. Tae-koo beaked whale, the deepest diving of all marine mammals and the one scientists think holds the record for the endothermic achieved the longest breath holding session these mid sized whales can dive around ten thousand feet that's about three thousand meters hunting four squid and other deep sea goodies, and they can hold their breath for an average of sixty seven minutes with one record dive that lasted one hundred thirty eight minutes before a coup. Beaked whale broke the previous record in northern elephants. Seal was the gold medallist caught holding its breath at one hundred nineteen minutes a sperm whale. Now comes in third place at ninety minutes. That's a long time to go without oxygen. When you've got an expensive mammalian metabolism to keep up, but lots of marine and aquatic mammals. Make it work by slowing their heart rates and redirecting blood away from their extremities into their brains, hearts and muscles. They even have special oxygen binding proteins in their muscles that allow them to store more oxygen than us land landlubbers.

"Always nice to take a break from work if you can and visit other countries or why not make another country your place of work as part of our series, how to be a blank. We hear more about life as a city tour guide in Barcelona. Spain is Jonathon Lerner, and I'm the founder of territories Barcelona and I live in Barcelona spin. Basically, I became a tour guide when I realized that I was in the country that I wanted to be in, which was Spain, but I wasn't doing what I wanted to be doing. I was working in real estate and had enough one day and return to what my passion was, which is art and culture, and history, and people and stories. When I started guiding and kind of learning the ropes. I was working with different friends and colleagues and kind of just learning as much as I can about the city as possible. And that was a great experience filler in the ropes because it really turned out to be. Kind of deflect theater. You had twenty people just kind of staring at you in the beginning. There was skepticism. They look at you, you know some levels of of the stress or what's going to what's going to happen on this tour. And after about ten or fifteen minutes really clockwork, you could see by using humor and history and connecting with the people there connecting within themselves. I think it's a first of all a lot of knowledge. So really understanding the pulse of the city, understanding what people would love to see to learn about into the here when they're in town, and then there's the human aspect. And that's what I love so much. Definitely is one of the most saturated tourism markets in Europe. It's not the world, and so I started small and launch territories Barcelona really just by word of mouth. And from there it was growing growing until a travel agent reached out and little by little. I was able to carve space out in the city. We have tons of tours. A wonderful experience is kind of an introduction to the city. We call it the the golden age of by slow, go through the gothic quarter, the historic center of the city, and we're gonna. We're gonna talk about two thousand years of history from the Roman times up through the gothic period and see some wonderful churches and squares, and actually try to make a child or an adult. Even at the end of this time together fall in love with gothic architecture. I know maybe that doesn't sound like the sexiest thing, but it's possible. Giving tours museums familiar every time. I'm still humbled by the absolute beauty of the city of the architecture and of the cultural heritage that I'm able to to share. So for me at the end of those two hours or three hours or whatever it was to see those people connecting when really the magic happens. That was Jonathan learner, founder of tailored tours Barcelona.
