Oh and but the thing of it was probably what had happened was that they had. They had tuned the piano electric tune the piano to a different key. Or maybe they hadn't and they just switched the key so maybe he could sing a better some high notes so he played what he thought. It was. And it just turned. It just wasn't in the key that they were playing in. That must've been crazy like no one else. By the way that came out the The end of my tenure at Mca slash irs.

"So so here's so yes or no really is. It's not as easy to find the answer as you think in other words. There's a lot of celebrity apprentice episodes. And then when you look up. Arnold schwarzenegger celebrity apprentice. It says two thousand seven to two thousand seventeen which indicates the length of the show exist. Show yeah so so. I'm usually can drill into that. And cd episodes he was on the phone. It's a little hard to do. He was on the episodes. He hosted possibly. He was on another episode. Where my buddy. Arnold is here. The greatest don't go buy a house well but so so. The premise was that if you're honest celebrity apprentice and hung out with trump. That it turned out that you were an asshole So so it's guaranteed words. I really all easing i. It seems like a fair number of people came away from it liking him. Because i think he's personable when he wants to be i think that's that's one of his one of his strength is he's able to talk to linda stuff right and so if you maybe. The gene simmons is of the world or just like people who maybe maybe. That's not a fair example. But you know what i mean. There's certain type of person who might be predisposed to go that direction politically anyway. I like i like that guy. Trust wake guys could easily convinced right so so. While my premise was that he was a contestant i would still say for the original premise if he appeared on the show in two thousand nine as a guest that that would still count as he was hanging out with donald trump and liking him at the time and since he didn't turn into an asshole then that would prove the the the theory right. I think he's a little more strong minded than most people. That's true having been the governor who california yeah. Some people didn't like what arnold schwarzenegger did in california during his and so but but he's the he's the old school i can have dinner with you and disagree with you.

But i want to just because i've heard good things but it seems very like especially initially it seemed like this is a very straightforward and kind of thin premise. Kind of like the emoji movie. Or you know those movies where. It's all kind of stuff that that's what i'm gathering and i'm glad to hear that because i because i kind of i like ryan reynolds and i want to see if we can get a lot of ryan reynolds in this great. I'm it but it's a better movie than what the trailers legitimately funny in my opinion. There's one line. But it which oliver pointed out. Because i said this and he went. Yeah because that's something you would say man. He's not wrong that he does it the same way every time and it's funny every time someone. Maybe it was zoe or somebody who was saying it also just looks exactly like the lego movie like the plot wise. It seems like it's very similar. Maybe i don't know what the league movie plot is.

Ibram X. Kendi And Keisha N. Blain On The 400-year story Of Black people In America
"Professor planes. You've got the top box. I'm going to start with you. This is a different kind of history book right. It's a history book where some of the ninety writers aren't even historians collectively who are the writers. And why are their voices so important so we asked an array of writers to contribute to the volume. And as you point out so many of them are not professional Journalists to contribute we asked philosophers to contribute We asked creative writers to contribute as well as poets end. What we wanted to do was really grapple with four hundred years of history. And not you know. We really didn't want it to feel like a typical a history book. I and of course asking ninety historians Would have i think a taken away from the the sort of you know tone that we were trying to set which was bringing together a diverse community which met people coming to the history writing about the history from their own experiences but also from their unique trainings whether in the field of journalism are in the field of law and so it was important for us to create something new something special something original and that meant bringing in writers from a wide array of backgrounds. Professor professor blaine just talked about the fact that you have poets in the book and you write quote sometimes. History is best captured by poets out. Some more there's anything. I've learned in my time writing history. That is that it's deeply complex. Variegated story that in many ways. We have to imagine things that we don't have a speculate on on on decisions that we don't have a specific for that we have to stretch archive especially when writing on on people's particularly working class. Americans certainly working cost black folks who haven't left an archive who haven't left on speeches and and necessarily written records and so you know. Poets have the capacity to really show the depth and complexity and the imagination and creativity of humanity. And and so when we when that comes to bear on history. And i think they were really able at the end of each section to really flush out and contextualized. You know forty years. When i was in school. Professor blaine We're going way back like the nineteen seventies nineteen eighties black history The way we're talking about today just wasn't taught. Slavery was a chapter and not exactly told honestly the accomplishments of black americans were diminished if they were even acknowledged so has anything changed since the seventies in the eighty s. What needs to change. So i think some things have changed You know when you look at how history textbooks written. We're certainly at a place where the textbooks that are produced today or even in the last ten years i think are better than the ones that were a public. Maybe twenty years ago does not mean that we still don't have work to do. In fact we have a lot of work to do. Especially i think in the last two or three years. We've been talking about textbooks in places states like texas for example where they're still a debate about how you talk about the civil war and how you talk about slavery and like you. I certainly encounter textbooks. That didn't really flesh out are the nuances. You know an even the trauma of of the the experience of slavery in often times a glossed over eight or or perhaps had a little box to focus on martin luther king junior but other than that not really center a historical figures i and so a lot has changed in part of that. Change is directly tied. I think to the work of a professional historians. We've been working very hard odd to excavate the history in in in order to help people better write about the history. I in a way that reflects the richness than the complexity and diversity of the black experience but particularly in a way that centers black agency which is key that black voices appear. That black ideas appear in. These textbooks are still some work to do. But i think we're making progress. I think four hundred souls is certainly the kind of texts that would help us move forward in that direction.
Facial Recognition in Law Enforcement
"One month before the new york times published. The story of robert williamson. Police officers killed. George floyd we all remember the weeks that followed the protests that broke up around. The country garnered tension around the world. It was so engrossing watching those scenes of civil strife that an otherwise remarkable part of the story went almost entirely on the radar in fifteen cities is the department of homeland. Security deployed planes helicopters and drums to watch over the protesters. The aircraft hovered over protesters in new york philadelphia. Detroit feeding customs and border patrol man centers which streamed the intel to police forces and national guard on the ground in minneapolis and the a secret rc. Twenty-six be reconnaissance. Blaine worked with ops on the ground streaming video feeds to an fbi command center in another instance in the top spending in the ficials ordered helicopters to provide quote persistent presence to disperse crowds. He helicopters flew so low to the ground that the sheer downward pressure from their rotor. Blades ripped the signs off of billions. And of course since protesters running this was something out of science fiction full on military intelligence operation on. Us land in later reporting military and government officials insisted that none of the aircraft deployed on protesters were equipped with fisher recognition capabilities in most cases. The aircraft were so high up that facial recognition would be moot. You can't make out face from a blip from nineteen thousand feet but even if some planes flew close enough to capture individual faces be problematic according to the new york times at least two hundred and seventy hours of protests footage was captured by the aircraft and uploaded to big pipe. Dhs network which can be accessed by other law enforcement agencies around the country for future investigations. Video in big pipe can be stored for up to five years. One potential concern then. Is that if a plane recorded. Good enough video. It wouldn't need real time fisher. Recognition on board an agency like the fbi could access that footage weeks or months later to identify individual protesters. It's entirely possible that this hasn't and won't happen but around the country police have already utilized facial recognition to identify and in some cases arrest individual. Blm protesters the extent of it is unknown. Police have no obligation to report on the run. Your face through a machine or concerns me is there's currently no limits at all none at all and so they can also use it to take a look at everybody who is in a peaceful protest of some sort And then take down their names and Hassle him or arrest them or give them trouble in one way or another or simply file them in a database as person of interest. None of which we want to have happen to us. This is ted claypool a lawyer and an author on legal issues surrounding privacy. And a here's one example of what ted means by no limits. Batanes out you can be arrested and not even know that facial recognition played partnered one. Protester less summer oriana albor knows was arrested for throwing rocks at police line. That's definitely a crime but no point in her processing. Did miami police mentioned in documentation to her lawyer or in any other capacity that the used clearview to identify her as the rock thrower. It took an independent investigation by nbc. News to uncover that information and it's important for mission right maybe arena was guilty but he next arena could be a robert williams.

Probably one hundred and thirty pounds even though he's still young guy but very energetic and.

And she didn't have any sort of hesitancy with meeting such a large dog first time. No no it was just another dog that she had never seen before. So it all worked out. Fine. So they they wound up living here for about eight months before she wound up getting the House next door. And it went incredibly incredibly well I can remember one day, and this is by this point I'd had any over two years and. I was sitting in my kitchen watching her do something I can't remember but I would i. do remember is just having a thought of like she. She's normal now like she knows how to be like a normal dog and don't get me wrong still a million quirks and a million unique things but it was the first time I ever will debtors like all right. You're doing what needs to be done. You'll have all these undo. Cheers of everything around you like you can actually just relaxing live now it like was the biggest relief and I remember touching base with the rescue group. I got her from sometime around into and tell them this story and. It was it was so cool to say like you know the transformations it'll never be done but like this big first phase is done and it was, it was somewhere between two hundred two and a half years of owning her before we finally hit that point. That is that's excellent. Tari, getting a little moist there. Look at that sunrise to hear. What sort of any sort of like adventures that the the two of them that you can sorta like that come to mind. They had more of a backyard romance I. Guess Errol is good to be doing things in the backyard and run around and a gold backboard between the neighbors houses and such but in terms of getting out into the mountains here the desert mountains and that remained a penny and I only event for I a while to come after that even By background I grew up on a farm I spent every waking hour outside when I was a kid and that's definitely followed me into adulthood and now kind of having done that most of my life I was a lot more comfortable with. Things up some people might considered dangerous or riskier somewhere between So kind of for that reason, we'd all go out on her own a lot I was comfortable with hides comparable cliffs knew how to navigate him with penny at this point, and we just kind of went out and did our thing every weekend and I'd say our average Saturday for for a couple of years was it up around sunrise be at the mountains go go play around for five six hours and make our way back home. And all throughout that process I kept stepping up the difficulty little by little at first I was super super considerate of the fact that she had done a whole lot of that and she quickly me no, she was not going to give me the same consideration. Just you bouncing around like you cannot imagine like a mountain goat for from day one and you know I step of difficulty she'd have no problem, step it up a little more. She'd had no problem and unsure sure my mom saw what we're doing on some of the some of those days you'd have an accident part of that but hey, I'm guessing for both of you. I love it and if for a moment at an any was loving it, I would've stopped. but it was super clear that she was Avin time of her life. I kind of get couple and running with it and.

Familiarized myself and. I remember that First Aid Taken Penny rebelling when? Standing Atop One hundred and twenty foot cliffs and her trying to figure out what in the world is about to happen. So you started small when? I wish I could say yes but. We did a couple of. Couple kissing realize saying this whole time instead of meters. Audience here but. But you know it started in the backyard free and bring her a few meters into the air and made sure she was calm and not not not going to be panicky 'cause I didn't need that at the top of a forty meter cliff myself and I would say that I repel I to this day I. do still feel a little guilty because I knew it scared her she had no idea what to expect but.

Startup community. Over the last few years blades encountered has struggled. It's all too common. Among high achievers figuring out how to achieve big things despite the fact that you may not have all the skills and resources required to achieve them through firsthand experience and continued education. Blaine lanes gained real insight on how to overcome this dilemma. And that's exactly what he's here to share with you today. So let's get after it here to share his perspective on how to connect your capabilities to your aspirations. This is Blaine Light. oftentimes in start ups. We have this big vision in this grand thing that we want to do and the question is how do we get there. I'm reading this really good book. It's called on Grand Strategy and this is where I'm borrowing this main concept from for example applying it to quick the company that we're at now it's food and beverage staffing for bartenders. Servers dishwashers and cooks and our aspiration is to change the future of work so that every professional professional that comes on our platform has the ability to earn when they want. They can pick up extra shifts in their downtime and they had that total freedom and flexibility to ply their skills and so our aspiration could be changing the future of work. We want to empower these people with the skills and if we were totally aspiration we'd say we are going to change the future of work for for every one that's aspirated. We're changing the future of work. The capability is. Let's stay focused here. Let's change the future of work For Food and beverage staffing to start. And let's do it in the United States to start. And how do we build this amazing team in each market that gets to grow. How do we support those people centrally? Well let's build it watch matrix. And let's rank the risk and the reward and we decide from there and so yes. We are changing the future of work. That's that's the aspiration or simultaneously holding all of our capabilities. And saying where do we start. What do we do next? What's our path to success and if companies just have the capabilities and say we're capable of launching this one market? That's not very exciting. If we're just focused on capabilities we don't have a lot of creativity to innovate and pivot and try different things. And if you're only in a capability mindset. You're only doing it. How it's done anybody can come up with? Let's go this way. That's aspirational if everybody is saying let's go this way now. You've got a total mess and no one's rowing in the same direction. So for the people that are listening. It's it's really important to remember. Let's have erection. Let's be in line with the capabilities so when we match respiration capabilities were all rowing in the same direction. Marrone really fast. My First Roy added a big Tech Company. I quickly found out that big corporations weren't for me. But why is that. When I went there I'd show up and I do the same thing? Every day the ability to innovate and change and put my handprint on things and grow something from the ground up was non existent. The number of meetings exceeded the amount of working time and overall it just felt like I couldn't control the work that I wanted to do. The other side of it coming out of that experience I went up to Silicon Valley and did my own startup up or had total freedom. It was a ton of fun. I went to parties where they were. Acrobats were falling from the ceiling because these entrepreneurs VC's were trying to get people to come to events that we're really exciting and it was an awesome atmosphere but in all that freedom came the question. What do we do? And so I'm able to contrast the experience of working at this big corporation to this total freedom of a start up and to be candid. I failed at both from that. I said I want to be part of something that is succeeding. Eating an uber at the time was one of the top hottest startups coming out of Silicon Valley and they needed someone to help launch and Phoenix. And in that experience it was absolutely amazing amazing I got to both innovate and grow and bring my ideas but did so. Within a structure there were goals. There are expectations. There was is a place that we were going to. You want to be able to match your capabilities with your aspirations. Where do we want to go? What do we want to do the startup the capabilities is how do we do it? What is the day to day the corporation and by combining aspirations and the capabilities? You get this amazing experience that I had uber. I noticed that as we were heading towards. IPO profitability was a very important thing to have and the really fun part of being. Such an innovative company was that they empowered individuals to come up with ideas and then Uber gave capabilities to achieve those aspirations. I got to lead up. This large team called spot special projects operations team so both teams seventy people and we aggregate tasks across all of the United States bringing bringing all of these things together into one shop whereas before it was done in different cities so l. a.. was doing it one way. New York was doing another one. They were all these local teams. That were doing it by bringing it it all into one place. We saved tens of millions of dollars. If Uber hadn't been a company like then had been more like the previous company I was it would have been more stifling and would have been more difficult and so I think for me. I found a lot of joy in being able to apply. Exactly what I wanted to do where I wanted to go the expirations with having the resources and the capabilities to do it some whether you're at a corporation or whether you're a startup or you're looking for a startup or doing small business for yourself and the people on your team team always ask yourself one am I am powering. These people by giving them the resources they need while to putting boundaries on so they know what is acceptable acceptable or non-acceptable. For them to do. If you don't do either of those you end up with people that are misguided or they're not self driven but the other side if you don't empower them with the resources and the capability ability to do it now they've got all this ambition nowhere to put it and for you as an individual you have to ask yourself. How do I maintain this freedom and creativity tippety automobile to leave somewhere in order to make something really great? I Co founder Danny Baxter spent eighteen years at HR technology firm and in that time he was what's known as an entrepreneur so he was able to innovate team after team after team. No one gave him permission per se to do do that. He sought his own way within the company and being able to do that was able to add the most value. And if you had that aspirations the way to do it will come forward. You gotta be able to know where you WANNA go said a vision and then get other people around you to do it when I was at Uber. There's a lot of people with really good ideas. And because of the company culture we were able to then implement the things that we were thinking about for example in Phoenix. I wanted to try out. This incentive have for all of the drivers that were out there on the road for Halloween. We ended up spending more money than any other city in the entire United States and and it was a total flop. Did I lose my job. No did I get reprimanded. Not exactly now. I've been in a typical company. Maybe I would have been fired or maybe I would have been on a performance improvement plan. Let's be clear. The goal of a startup company is to succeed. If we make mistakes the goal is to learn from those mistakes and apply them. Learning by doing is one of the best ways to learn but we also learn from others for example if there were other teams that had already done this incentive experiment failed. We could've learned faster. So actively seeking out the knowledge that's there but not using that to limit you from going to making a decision and trying something so for the people that had the privilege of leading a team. Remember you are first and foremost there to protect your team if they make a mistake and I don't want to label it as good or better do something really really well either way. If there's any heat you take it as the leader and if there's any praise you give it to the team and empower those people to match their capabilities and aspirations rations. Being able to blend those two ground ourselves in or building something amazing. And here's how we do it. That's what gets me fired up. Every single day start. UPS are super were exciting by nature and there's days where things go wrong there's updates and their down days. It's important to remember every day that we show up and we believe in what we're building confident and where we're going and we also are watching to make sure that every step that we're taking his in the right direction. I like to take risks. I'm a super extrovert. What's my risk profile? If I'm more of an aspirational type of person. I'm more. Let's go do it. I think it's good for me to lean into that. And if I'm more of the person that's risk-averse kind of stuck in the capabilities here's what we've gotta do and here's how we do it. It's okay for me to start thinking outside the box a little bit and taking a little bit more risk. I've done both. I was totally in the corporate side. And just feeling that stifling environment and then going out to San Francisco and say I'm GonNa go one hundred and eighty degrees as I'm GONNA go out to Silicon Valley I'm GonNa do a startup. Eight Rahman and going to these lavish parties and seeing the the contrast kind of made me realize maybe there's a middle ground here. Maybe it doesn't have to be all structure. Maybe there's something in the middle. I think of a lot of success if you lean in know who you are what you provide know what your weaknesses. Czar know what you need to learn recognize where you are on the risk aversion scale and you're grounded between your.
"blaine" Discussed on Ravens at the Crossroads
"I am Tyler Matthews so brandon yesterday surprising or maybe not surprising my other people were on it. You stood up and decided that you would take on the position for National Board position. Can you tell us a little bit about that. Yes you know. In the beginning it was hesitantly But with the backing of my coven because my cousin is a very outreach Kevin so this was for the new outreach position for Cog Doug and the whole goal of to get more people to join get the word out there about what paganism is to get get more people join and so so immediately we started thinking of ideas like that we already do. Sometimes so I've I have some experience doing outreach for a lot of other different kinds of groups some some groups pagan some. LGBT groups doing all kinds of research really get people involved. Somehow so I mean it was it. It was exciting and I and knowing that I have a coven that is there with me and then my my mother is also on the board now as well and so. I'll be assisting her as well as the public outreach information officer in the membership and so it's GonNa be exciting because I had a vision of of really going out there to those dry areas where you know. They're cog is not on the map in hiding out. What's going on there? You know and Pagan Pride Days Happen All across across the United States so that is one avenue all year. So that's one avenue to go college. Campuses exists in in. These are the the kinds of ideas that were already thinking of and so I just have to while I got to do some reading I wrote then of course start brainstorming some ideas and so that's it was is exciting. I think it was an emotional time for for cog and so I think that when I went up there everybody was just excited that this young person was taking on the position and so it was a moment for for me and it was. It was a surprise for I think most people they're definitely not for my covenant but a lot of people really excited to C. N. he's under fifty a quite a bit younger than fifty younger than thirty. Yeah Yeah Yeah at least for another year but Just for some clarification for people who might be listening cog stands for coming of the goddess and it is is an organization that Supports Pagan Rites assuring thing and right since nineteen seventy five there. We go so I just wanted to clarify that for our listeners. And for a clarification purposes as well Blaine and Brennan are brothers. They're actually a family family of Pagan. So both your parents and you to plus your other brother or all on the path. Well yes yes in different forms in different wavelengths I would say on the path together and that's that's also some of. It's really awesome to hear family doing it together. Because it's I don't think you hear much of that Not as much yeah. You don't hear it out in the general populace so it's Kinda cool to hear of a family that does and you guys are only same. Coven are you. We are a you are I thought. Okay thinking of forming my own coven okay. Because I'm further away from them but you know definitely at this moment we are the same cover. That's something else but it's very rare. See Big family support system like that. And that's awesome. I applaud your family for are being all interconnected in support of. I think that's amazing So also I think we're what there's maybe five six of us are under the age of forty will be nice and say look at me like wait a minute. I'm like I'm trying to think of how many other people because I'm a little bit older than you guys on five usually guys so great. Yeah it's not much I'm also a member of cog so there are some times in Mrs Prime was sitting there like don't do it. Don't you do it because there were things that are being said Technical Colin. Like really help on this but as I'm not a member. Yeah I really didn't have that Gets complicated. Yeah Yeah Yeah so As mostly trying to save him from over extending himself with volunteering to do things too much Because we're we're both responsible to each other for that so I was like we'll do it. Just chill we'll figure a way out but you don't have to be the person listen to use it so and my husband is appreciative. That she kept me from doing in. Her husband has appreciated that. I kept her on. We're kinda watching the heath kit probably rent for this position again. Like it's okay I have. I have a lot of other things on my plate. Right was being this podcast. So I'm curious to hear you guys started down your path in each of him. Yeah because I understand. It's a different story three. Well we can try and ongoing order so like I was probably the first Son So it started with my mom and so she became wiccan. I and and so she started out. There was a small group that met on the base. The military base and it was a small little group. We'll have about twelve fifteen people usually and they would have salads on Bass and and everything was very great and seemed pretty put together and so she had been going to that for for several years. There's and I think that I noticed when I was around thirteen. She had her alternate. We all noticed the altar we would play with the rocks on alternatives pool of Trinkets Trinkets and stuff. And so maybe that was when we were younger but then like she's told me one time you know we would like to come to a class and so I went to class. And then we began the class with a meditation. TATION elemental Earth Air. Fire water meditation and I was probably about thirteen. Okay yeah so and I went through that and I was hooked ever since it all just made sense to me and the something clicked and stuck with me and so I had been going back consistently started experiencing rituals in and it hooked and then I think that was went on for a bit and then you found that a little later muster is a little bit different on throughout high school. I've always atheist agnostic. I didn't know what I believed what I needed to do. But I knew I I was aware of course that my mom was a witch. What was going on in the house any that she went to rituals and I was of course I was a part of those rituals because a lot of times we would hold the rituals at our home and I was back from when we were thirteen? Fourteen years old back at the old house the really old one the Big Blue House we would call it so yeah we would hold rituals out there. I would the tim them. But I would say that I was like a witch or at that time. It wasn't until I started going to the UNITARIAN universalist fellowship or when our family was actually involved in that organization. When I really started to pay attention to what I wanted what my path was what I wanted to do with my life and so that was when we started getting volved in the uterine universalist fellowship of Otero County around two thousand seven to say so? I was about seventeen years old. So that's why I started to like really do things are massive scale. I would attend Sunday services there I would put on some of the classes. I taking the with a one hundred one. I think the year after that and so because it was just it just made more sense and the and the UNITARIAN universalist fellowship a lot of the beliefs parallel with what I felt was my role view. You know as far as like connecting different people together connecting faiths together and so. That's that's kind of how I kind of fell into a craft was definitely how my parents were organizing everything a little bit better and and really falling into different. I guess I'll reach will be the word I would use for. It was kind of just not just singling out one organization like on the the base or Hammond Circle. That's what it was called called Holland Circle. That was that was the first circle that we went to. And then and then we kind of just gravitated downtown because because the leaders of that group went away they moved to Albuquerque and so my mom took over the group so she became.
