"Just turned 13. And, you know, we're mom dot com. So we're all about moms. And certainly we hear a lot about the dangers of teens and social media. And you are right now probably the biggest social media star. And you're using it for your brand and your business in such a positive way. But I'm wondering what what is sort of like the line or the boundary or maybe rules that you have for Brin when she is navigating social media? You know, we see all these teens also like reverting back to flip phones now. So I would just love to hear your take on that. I didn't know about that. The flip phones. But I like that. She basically knows anything that ever goes in writing by text or anywhere photograph photography that it can end up everywhere. And. She consumes content, but she's not making that much content. And she I had her phone for two days this weekend. It was in my room. She didn't look at once like she can go days without the phone. So she's not what I think is a typical tween. And I don't think I can handle that. Sometimes it'll be you know, we're in the car for a long drive and she's just using it to like hang out. But she loves to watch old school movies. She likes to watch inappropriate movies, too. She likes to watch Amy Schumer and is her favorite. And she likes Adam Sandler and she likes The Hangover and Mike and Dave's Wedding. She likes like inappropriate bro content. Like a from movie standpoint. That is actually hilarious. But no, probably not the typical teenager. Right. Like so. Right. That you don't need to like make those, you know, kind of like hard and fast rules about about social media. That's awesome.

"Welcome back to Bloomberg technology. I'm Emily Chang in San Francisco. Tesla shares dropped to start the week after the company's quarterly regulatory filing detailed updated capital spending plans, a new SEC subpoena, and more on its Bitcoin investments who else has more on this story, but our own Ed ludlow with the latest Ed, what do we know? Yeah, I like these ten qs because you get the nitty Gritty, the detail of what was not discussed in the earnings release. We see Tesla down 1.4%. Interesting because it snapped a really hot run. If you look at the stock over the last 9 days, it had risen for 8 straight days, best run since March and then suddenly dropped off to reflect the session on Monday because there was a lot of information in there. In fact, let's bring up some of the key details. CAPEX is going to be between 6 to $8 billion in each of the next two years. That's a slight revision upwards from 5 to 7 billion. Remember, Elon Musk called, Tesla's factories around the world, money furnaces, burning money in order to ramp up production, but then you can also get the disclosures, right? New SEC subpoena relating to that original 2018 arrangement between Elon Musk and the SEC about Twitter cities. Basically the SEC wants more information on what the company is doing to hold him to that original deal. And then there's the impairment on Bitcoin, right? Bitcoin was one of the mainstays of Tesla's balance sheet over the first half of this year, but it's had a really rough start to the year. If we look at the year to date performance of Bitcoin, for example, so Tessa registers a $175 million impairment loss but they also sold Bitcoin in that period, right? In order what they say to preserve cash on the balance sheet for what could be some fallout ongoing basis from the Shanghai plant shutdowns. Meantime Ed Elon Musk and the headlines, again, for some non Tesla news that he, according to The Wall Street Journal, had an affair with Sergey Brin's wife Sergey Brin, of course, is the cofounder of Google, the journal reporting that brynn ended his investments in Musk's companies as a result of this. We know that he filed for divorce earlier this year. Elon Musk denying this. What do we know? Yeah, so The Wall Street Journal reported that this fare took place with the cold shower of hand in December of last year, that the relationship with brin and Musk had broken down, they cited anonymous sources and as you saw on your screen just then maybe we can bring the pictures back up, Musk tweeted response to somebody who had tweeted the article calling it inaccurate for one of a better expression. I won't use the terms that he put on the screen. But he also did a tweet at later during the day saying, it was in response to a photo that had been tweeted. Elon Musk and Sergey Brin and in that tweet must claim that they were at a party together just 24 hours previous. So not only did he deny that the affair took place, but he also kind of denied the idea that they had fallen out and that they'd been partying together as recently as this past weekend. So another Elon Musk story were very littles do with the companies that he leads. All right, and one we will continue to follow. Ed, thank you. Well, I want to turn now to the booming digital health landscape with summer health, the pediatric telehealth startup that's aiming to make responses to very common medical questions more accessible through a telehealth platform. The idea seems to be resonating with investors, the startup just raised a seed round led by Sequoia and Lux capital, Ellen de Silva, CEO and cofounder of summer health, joins us now so Ellen, talk to us about the idea here, the driving premise of summer health. Yeah, thanks for having me, Emily. The idea behind summer health is a very simple one. We believe that all Americans should have a phone number, they can text and get an answer, staffed by a doctor within 15 minutes for any of their medical needs. This started out of my own needs as a mother. So we're very excited to launch summer health today. And your focusing on pediatric care, why is that? I mean, the idea that I could just reach my pediatrician in minutes is totally novel and kind of amazing, but it also seems like a moonshot. Yeah, I mean, it sounds like you as a mother may have also experienced this. We're starting a pediatrics for many reasons. Two of the primary reasons are that parents are thirsty to get more medical attention for their children. There is no shortage of parenting questions that come up around health and wellness that parents wish they could ask a pediatrician, but because pediatrician's offices tend to be overworked and sometimes, unfortunately, understaffed, they have nowhere to turn. The second reason is we want to give more access and resources to pediatricians who want to work more. We have learned through starting summer health that one in 5 medical professionals is planning to leave the industry in the next two years. According to the American medical association and anecdotally in pediatrics, it's far worse. And so we know that pediatricians are looking for alternate ways to practice medicine. We believe that summer health is a great way for them to do so. Why is that that providers are leaving and that it's worse among pediatricians? COVID was tough for everyone. Most notably physicians. Physicians have been overworked, understaffed, put through the ringer because of COVID. They also have not necessarily benefited from the ability to work from home. The way a lot of other professionals have been able to do. And so many of them are now turning to professions that would allow them to work from home. And in fact, summer health, you don't even necessarily need to be face to face with a doctor. Your provider can be at her child soccer game. In particular with pediatrics, pediatricians tend to be disproportionately women who, as we know, have been affected by COVID and lack of child care resources. 25% of them are part time. And so look to fill the rest of their time with other pediatric work. And we believe that summer health is the best platform for them to do so. Amazon acquired one medical last week. There's a lot of stuff going on in the telehealth profession. What do you make of that move? We've been following the news very closely. And we believe it's a boon to the telehealth industry. When a large or incredible player like Amazon comes into the space, it's very legitimizing for the telehealth industry. So we view it as positive, not only for patients, but also for the industry as a whole. So there are a lot of patients who are potentially concerned about Amazon owning this company concerns about how our data, for example, is going to be used. I mean, how can we be sure this is definitely moving the industry in the right direction? Yeah, again, we think about this a lot. There is such a thirst for more medical care. Our health system today is mostly reactive, it's mostly done in person. And it's not necessarily servicing the broader needs of patients. But what we learned through COVID is that 88% of Americans have access to some form of telehealth in the last two years. And 77% of clinicians have expressed that telemedicine can actually drive better outcomes for care. So we know that the industry is poised and right for this kind of modality. I'm fairly certain that Amazon will abide by the regulations around PHI and sharing of information, but broadly speaking when we see larger players coming into the space, I would be not be surprised if Google and Apple and some other companies starts playing this category. We see a net positive for patients who can access doctors faster. Interesting. All right, Ellen de Silva, CEO and cofounder of summer health, really interesting what you are starting and will continue to follow. Meantime, Google has confirmed it fired a software engineer who worked on the company's AI team over his public contention that he had conversations with a bot that had become sentient.

It's among most red on the Bloomberg terminal. I open up a Twitter yesterday, and I just say, oh no, here we go. So Elon Musk denying a report of having an affair with Sergey Brin's wife, this allegedly happening last fall slash winter at a time when Elon Musk actually had three new babies. So The Wall Street Journal reported citing anonymous sources that Elon Musk had had an affair with Sergey Brin's wife last December, but they kind of had the crux of the story was that Sergey Brin had asked his financial advisers to divest or sell off investments in Elon Musk related companies. Tesla, Elon Musk tweeted over the weekend. I think I can say this on radio, but one of the things that was that's total BS. And then what's happened in the last 12 hours or so is that a known Tesla fan or Elon Musk fan has tweeted a photo which shows Elon Musk and Sergey Brin partying together and Elon Musk replied to the photo suites and said, yes, this was taken about 24 hours ago. I haven't seen Sergey Brin's wife for a number of years, and he said some other stuff as well. So this is kind of the usual chaos that comes with covering the world's richest man. Are you crazy? Are you working for People magazine now? That's a great question. I've had a crazy reporting week, but I didn't think we'd be discussing this for that way. That's why I'm just saying, this is why we love covering Elon and Ed does it so well. Ed love love, thank you so much. West Coast correspondent at Bloomberg news.

"I'm not going to go that far, but, you know, yeah, and again, I feel weird kind of campaigning for Gordon because I never thought I'd be here at this point. Especially on that contract, but here we are. Yeah, I mean, if it was a late first, okay, I could see that. It's more thinking like an unprotected at some point. That's where we are. That's probably too much. And then if you're giving up and unprotected first, you better be really confident. You're a good team. Absolutely. That's not going to worry about it. You know, we've talked a lot about how the spurs don't do deals, midseason, and now we've got another player brin Forbes, the nuggets are apparently interested in working something out for him. The spurs don't appear to be making a playoff push or anything like that or worrying too much about that. So I might the streak here be broken or the trend break here in the spurs make a movement season. We've already hurt that young, and now brin Forbes, potentially. A guy who's out there. Yeah, and I think the difference with those two guys is two veterans that are on expiring contracts. This person often sitting in that position. They tend to either have young guys or they have veterans who are locked up for multiple years. It's kind of rare for them to be in this spot. So that's I kind of don't, there was a report that the raptors are interested in Jacob pearl. We talked about. I don't know that I'm necessarily dispersal moving out of bertley. I don't think that makes a lot of sense for them. But that young Britain Forbes that does make sense there. And I think this is where you do kind of break your trend of we don't really do in season deals because it's a really hard to see how trading either one of those guys really comes back to bite you. Whereas if you could trade Perl, he could go on to play great. You could be a pretty good team next year. And be sitting there saying, you know what? We really need a defensive anchor in the paint. And now you're like, man, we should have just kept portal. I don't think they're going to be finding themselves pining for that younger burn Forbes.

I'm a mom as well so the last time we talked i was still working at the community college as a program developer and shortly after our interview is when i realized the potential for bands to be able to grow and for me to be able to focus full time on it and i also found out was pregnant so i knew i had nine months to work from home and grow brin bands and then i was gonna figure it out when my son came. It's so crazy to see. Burn band started using crunchies. So now we've added all these product lines as well also have headbands in different styles. There's like a turban nodded in a tied on one We have scratches for little's all these new products so it's just really exciting to see the growth that we've had in different product lines and everything is still with that band name so a headband had is still has it. So that's still my focus. I feel like a lot of times we borrow is like. Can you do t shirts. And i'm like that's just not what brin bands stands for and i feel like just changed the focus of our here sassari can align. We've edit all the new product lines so it's a lot of cannock customer so i'm really proud of that and some other things on se. I just reached my twenty six thousand transaction mark. So i sold. I've had twenty six thousand transactions on esi so that's a lot of products that i've made. I guess one little pass of though i love it seems like at least once a month they will get a message in. Dm's or on esi saying that they heard me some titles and that just makes my day so exciting half pool Still listening to my episode so many years later so that's always really exciting. One girl was actually from the same hometown. As as so. That was kinda fun to

The Pixel 4a is coming
"We just had soon are on the show. Was it two months ago? And we're like what's up pixels and he like we gotta make him. Good. Did he make him good. I mean he made he made one one. Good. So the Pixel for a has been announced and released viewed it bunch of a tear. Actually, the podcast of used one but because the Pixel for is late and we can talk about why it is really close to when we're assuming the pixel five is gonNA come out. So Google is like you know what? Yeah, we're making a pixel five. It'll be out here this fall also there's GonNa be a pixel for a five G. 'cause you know that's what you want. So they just announced all three phones at once just Bam per year of you reviewed the. We've not seen photos of the five. We have seen various and confusing leaks all summer and Chris you might actually have a better handle around this afar but a bunch of the early leaks for like this must be the pixel five. Am It's like well, no, there's actually the probably the pixel for five G. now, and then there's more yet more internal documents, even more pixels at a foldable pixel like later on down the line like it's a fiasco in Pixel rumor land. Super. Confusing I mean they had that league. I think it was last month there was a phone. It looks just like the four day but they said it was the five and people weren't sure. But then it seems like they might get rid of their face ID clone which I really actually liked on the pixel of four like to just walk away from that the thumb reader but I mean, yeah, no one's really quite sure it's going to look like even the four five G. might have new specs or a bigger screen or who knows who knows what the story is I mean it's there's there's just always confusion about what's GonNa Happen is GonNa have brightly colored plastic rectangle smug s Yes The four as a decidedly, not brightly colored plastic rectangle. Four, you reviewed it. So the big big new innovation in the Pixel Foray is they dropped fifty bucks off the price. So it to three hundred, fifty dollars, which is. Pretty big. It's a pretty big deal It's a hundred bucks less than these storage equivalent iphone se. To get one I WANNA see one, hundred, twenty, eight gigs and they just like. Got Everything as good as you can probably get it on a three hundred, fifty dollar phone like I. Wish it had a faster processor but we live in a world of android where qualcomm. If you want to get a good qualcomm processor, you gotta spend way too much money. So I got like, okay one that's got a pretty solid screen. It's it's got a hole punch. It's got the Pixel camera a Becca actually pointed out to me when we were talking to them, she asked if it had was the sensor Becca three sixty three. Yeah. Same Sensor as. The Pixel four and the Pixel three and the Pixel three they've been using literally like the exact same camera stack for like two years now. So it's great. It makes takes rate photos but they haven't pushed it much. I would love it. If you could select your software tuning on the Pixel who right if you buy a pixel for and like make this shit, look like the Pixel two that would make me very happy because I thought the Pixel two looked it was the most contrast in the most dramatic and they have veered towards looking more like the overtime. But I wish. I. Could just be like go back to that look I love that look the best because if they're using the same hardware, they should give you the choices software, right? Everyone is just looking at me like. I mean it's like it's like saying you should just get your choice of. Clutch on your Mustang like it gets tied. The thing. Okay. Versus automatic. Put Your Ninety seven clutch in Twenty fifteen I mean you don't WanNa do that but you can be retune in anyway. Keep going the pixel for we're not gonNA talk about mustangs fingerprint sensor on the back. It works great. It's got a headphone Jack. because. Apparently low and phones are the only phone's headphone Jacks Anymore Beca you holding one right now you're holding. I'm holding one right now and what I'll have to say about this is that I love this thing like it gave me everything I like about phones in twenty twenty like a big screen and it's slim and the batteries diesen but it kept the things that I also love about previous cones that I love a fingerprint sensor like a one on the back and I love a headphone Jack and I love the Pixel camera in its three hundred and fifty dollars, which is a pretty good pricing twenty twenty for a brand new phone. There's this. There's this meme out there. For him but like there's this idea out there that like Google was bored with android in the pixels reflection of its board on this phone feel like they're bored with it. Now I'm bored with Andrew. Debut. The one new features accessibility feature for software a IT'll do real time captioning phone calls but it doesn't record them and it doesn't put them on the Internet. So don't have your conspiracy theories thrown at me Breitbart. They wrote it up terribly anyway So that's like the one thing but that's coming other pixels. It's just like Google. So committed to keeping the pixel software like really clean and basic relative to the madness that happens on every other android phone that it can feel a little bit boring and their decision to be really like understated with their design. I think it's like they've got they've. got a little bit too far. It's been like, no, no this is this is the the android phone that isn't flashy. It's just like a phone and after a while like that message gets through that like. Made a phone. Okay. Like they want it to be utilitarian to the point where it's like become a little bit boring. Thank you. Go. Has has been so long burned by Sergey Brin. Coming into Google glass event. On a hang glider. That's a real thing that happened they.

How do pirates retire?
"And all next week. I'm investigating the myths and mysteries of the pirates that sailed the seven seas during the golden age of piracy. Yesterday I debunked the idea that pirates never had treasure chests full of gold blooms and pieces of eight and cited the discovery of the pirate ship wide up by BERRY CLIFFORD CHESTER TREASURE. That he hold from the remains of that ship and yeah it was a treasure map that led into that site today. I'll detail how pirates were able to repair their ships despite being unable to pull in any protocol and where they ended up when they go to old from the coast of wealth leak Massachusetts where Clifford found that pirate ship. Wider will travel eight thousand miles across the Atlantic cross the continent of Africa to an island in the Indian Ocean in the seventeenth century. A thirty one mile stretch of land was called Ile Sainte Marie. Just a short sale as the seagull flies. For in the seventeen and eighteenth century was home to more than a thousand pirates but it was no mere coincidence that the colony was set up on seemingly remote island this particular stretch of land in the Indian Ocean was chosen specifically for location from here. The pirates could easily intercept and plunders ships. Traveling from the East indies laden with valuable cargo. So associated was island with piracy that gone to Madagascar for Limes. Was a message often left at pirate meeting places. It is believed that feared Brin Adam Baldrige realized that the bays and inlets of the island would provide safety for ships as well as affording about a full supply of fresh food water and women. It is also thought that the ample supplies of fruit were used for making that infamously favorite drink of these. See Ferry Marauders. Rum was the many inlets. The provided a defensible harbor for careening. This ship was pulled ashore and much of its whole. Planking was either scraped clean or replaced because this process placed ships and their crew in a vulnerable situation change were pulled across the entrance to the inland just below the surface. In the event of the pirate harbour was discovered in an English or Spanish ship attempted to enter the chain would rip out there Keel but more than a pirate harbour. I all Sainte. Marie became last stop for aging pirates. To this day you can go. To The island of find hundreds of stone markers at with names dates and the skull and crossbones on some many times entire crew would end up on the island and bury their treasure often in fear of having it taken by another pirate truth. Tunnels were dug containing all kinds of traps. Should an attempt be made to steal their booty? One of the most notorious Captain Kidd suffered at the hands of his crew burned his ship to the water that was the adventure galley and then sank after the remains of the ship were discovered so many tourists came to what was commonly called. Pirates island. This would be about nineteen eighties. They were injured when they descended into those ancient pirate tunnels so many were injured that the local government had the entrances cemented over. Well Monday. I'll describe what life on a pirate ship was like. And how many pirate cans couldn't fire a cannonball more than one hundred feet and what the battle between ships was really
Tech businesses wary of moves to bar brainy immigrants
"An executive order last month temporarily suspending the approval of some green cards many in the tech industry pushed back hard. The sixty days suspension does not apply to h. One B. B.'s. `As the visas for high skilled workers that tech companies often used to bring in engineers and other employees but this ETA the big lobbying and Trade Association for the Tech Industry says immigrants have founded some of the country's biggest tech companies. They've contributed to the startup innovation economy in the US and said that if these restrictions go on or get expanded it will hurt the country's ability to compete. Michael Patrick own is the senior vice president of government relations for the CPA. It's huge issue for us. Immigrants and their children have founded forty five percent of the US fortune five hundred companies and that includes tech companies like Intel Amazon. Google and Apple Steve Jobs as father came from Syria. Andy Grove of Intel came from Hungary and Sergey Brin came from Russia. Jeff Bezos is father came from Cuba. Imagine how different our country would be. We'd closed our doors to those immigrants the order it doesn't affect workers who enter the US on H. One B. Visa which is used by many tech companies to bring in workers. But you're still worried just across the board. We have heard rumors that the administration is going to be addressing and putting limitations on h. One B. Visas next. That may something they're considering the near future and we think that would be a mistake. Got It and so the concern not is not just about this existing order which is for sixty days but the idea that down the road the tech sector could be actively hurt by ongoing restrictions will. Yeah I mean it is and also bear in mind. This is a competitive marketplace the the marketplace for the world's smartest people as competitive so of. Immigrants. Don't come here. You're going to go someplace else. They're going to go someplace like Canada. I mean for a long time there was a billboard highway one and it said something like immigration problems. Come TO CANADA. We have a new STARTUP VISA. You've got these. Other countries that are embracing skilled emigrants like programmers and engineers entrepreneurs at the same time the US tightening its borders and these countries these workers create businesses and generate jobs for locals. These immigrants that ends up another country is a win for that country at a loss for us. Is there any argument for the restriction? I mean I know that you know there probably will be people who agree with the president and say America should be first in line for jobs if we have thirty percent unemployment. Well the point is that immigrants. Come here and they create jobs right. It's not like there's a fixed number of jobs to be. Had they come here. They create companies. They create jobs and they hire Americans so immigrants are there a crucial part of our nation's economy and the tech industry. And that's especially true today. Right look around. Immigrants are helping respond to the pan-demic in research. It in AI. In Food Supply. And then as as we come out of the pandemic we're going to need to innovate as never before. We need immigrants and the world's best minds to be part of the process.
Small business emergency lending program expands fintechs portfolios
"The paycheck protection program is a weekend to its second round of hopefully funding small businesses through the corona virus outbreak. Some financial tech companies also known as Syntax got permission from Congress to offer those loans. They include pay pal into it cabbage and others. The hope is that they can get loans to people and businesses who haven't worked with traditional banks in the past and the Fintech say they're tack is also an advantage but so is that true. Let's dig into it and quality assurance the segment where we take a second look at Big Tech Story Felix. Salmon is chief financial correspondent for the tech site axios. The banks were a bit slow to be able to set up websites that customers found it impossible to get to a to a human being or to find out where they stood whether their applications were going through and there was a general feeling that given that all of this was being done on the Internet the Internet companies might be better doing it than the banks were so relatively quickly. This program was opened up so that the eligible lenders included not only banks but also Internet companies Lake Pay Pal and quicken and square. Gotcha I mean. I feel like one of the questions about these lenders. And FINTECH companies and neo banks in particular is that in some ways they serve. Replace this idea of the Community Bank. Like do we have any evidence that they are or could be more inclusive than established lenders. I think they are in the if you applied for P. P. Loan from pay pal. Then your chances of guessing it. We're probably the same no matter who you were given that many of the people applying if not most of the businesses applying had no particular relationship with these Fintech to begin with now doesn't mean they're going to get that loans. It's far from clear that the ability of pay pal to get loans through the SBA system and get people. Funded is any greater than any other bank. But at least you can feel that you're on a level playing field if that's any. Solis which you probably isn't to be honest. Who is applying through? Let's say pay pal or square or into it. Who are these small businesses to a first Brooks mission? Everyone who didn't get a loan or wasn't able to get through when applying through that bank. Whatever the reason was if you haven't got your money it's not give up on your bank entirely but you say well. Maybe I can't get a loan through my bank. I should try a getting along with someone else and given the it's not difficult to apply through pay pal. Oh quicken intuit it. You May as well try if they come back to you and say hey you've been funded. Brin and you can take the money and if they don't it's no harm no foul and is there any evidence or will there ever be a way to tell you think whether they claim that these kind of like tech driven platforms are more nimble and better able to get your application through than a big bank the banks and the Fintech have all been extremely unhelpful? When people like you and me have been asking them for details about how many people try to apply. How many of those people who try to apply actually got their money those ratios on not public information than the information that the SBA has see you need to get that information directly from each one. And I don't think any of them are going to be releasing that data on the kind of apples to apples basis that we'll be able to make that determination. Is this an opportunity for these companies like if they are able to establish themselves as this type of lender or just do good by some small businesses is an opportunity for them to build a customer base down the road I think for about twenty four rows an opportunity to get some goodwill? I think the small business owners actually went to those places putting their applications and then didn't receive any money that some of that goodwill did evaporate. What's more of these companies? Aunt actually lenders at heart companies like paypal and square a much more based on payments on loans. And so. It's not clear that even if this did give them a foot in the door when it came to small business lending that something that they would really want to be right and it feels like certainly some of them have provided loans like cabbage are into it but the others haven't to think they're likely to discover that in fact. This is a terrible morass that they would like to back out of slowly. Small business loans were horrible thing to be in in general because small businesses so many things can go wrong is so difficult to really get under the hood and find out how credit worthy they are for. P. It's different because it's all guaranteed by the government so you don't need to spend too much time really underwriting the loan and understanding the business before extending the credit but if you want to actually lend money to small businesses as part of your business especially if you're doing unsecured and you're not you don't have access to cash flows which you can just S- ts to pay back the loan. Then yeah it's really Nali business where lots of lenders have become unstuck. And it's not clear that very many investors want these companies to get into that line of
Neural Architecture Search and Googles New AutoML Zero with Quoc Le
"Welcome to the PODCAST. Hi Everyone. It's great to have you on the show I've followed research for Your work for quite some time and I'm looking forward to digging into some of the new things that you're working on but before we do that I'd love to have you share a little bit about your background and how you got started working in machine learning okay so I was born in Vietnam. I did my Undergrad in Australia. And in my second year. My undergrad I started some project doing machine London with Alex. Mola a back in Australia and back. Then I was played with. Kodo methods Then I Did my PhD AT STANFORD. A on a lot of deep learning back in the day when deployed in whispers or very cool. And that's the route two thousand seven and around two thousand eleven I did a summer internship at Google and that was when Google Brin project was founded so when I was there that was a long and Jackie Naan Greco data was there and I. It was the sun so we started out small. That sounds cool. Yeah and then I did some of the Scaling Up Neuro networks with Google Britain folks and then You know at the end Up to two years did some work on machine translation with the media and Oreo VR. He's now did mine. Owner of Ilya is now at opening I and we develop sold end to end. Solution methods and Around two thousand sixteen. I started looking into more like You Know Auto. Mau Architecture search and more recently are looking to Malacca together with Otto may also look into Sent me supervised learning and it's awesome awesome now. You mentioned early on doing work with Alex. Mullah was he was this before he was at Carnegie Mellon was visiting in Australia. He was a professor in Australia. Yeah I I went to a university. In a small air. In the capital city Austrailia go Kendra. He was yeah camera and he was Professor Edward Research. So I thought I had. I have along Very interested in AI and machine learning and took me for that. I took a class data mining and so on and talk a little bit boring but the ability to actually learn. It's actually a super fascinating so I contacted him and he was moonlight co methods machine learning and we worked together for maybe a few years before he went to he went to America then. Cmu and Amazon. Okay okay so a lot of your. Recent work has been focused on this idea of You know automating machine learning and neural architecture surge to allow machines to find the best deep learning architectures in like. It's a little bit about how you arrived at working in that area. What some of the motivations were for getting started digging into that problem so I've been Along interested in this idea of self improvement machine should be self improving itself a machine learning and even and when I started doing co methods with Alex. I always ask him. You know how the Dakota bandwith and so on how some of the HYPOC Ramat does include methods decided and apparently they decided by using things like Cross validation on then where I work on. Koroma two narrow networks. My hope is to make the hype. Affirmative go away. But that's how is the opposite so if you look at the a Kabul Lucien neural networks at has a lot of hype privatised right like how many how many layers you want it to be and how many channels you wanted to be. And what are the some of the high assize apprentice since on a Coulda with all the training parameters? Yeah all learning. Dry and as researcher develop more and more techniques FAW EURONET. There's more decisions that you have to make. That feel like. This is like a problem that can be helped by a little bit of automation so So I I observe a lot of my colleagues who will when designing networks and I asked him about the principles of design. Your neural networks. And you started are having some really solid principles like Skip CONNECTION SO. The gradient can flow through the network concern. But as you tune the network Karen Hata do no longer have the principal is around. You know trial and error right you you try this a little bit and simply with better so you try that more so. I think that that is something that may be ready for automation so even during my Grad School. I already talked about trying this but I thought you know. Maybe we didn't have enough compute because training net already takes took me days so when I saw that new control. Units are are in thirty minutes. Something like that on on safer I thought. Oh maybe this is the right time to try this. So that's when I started doing this. Newer architecture search in two thousand sixteen. It's interesting that you know. Even with all of the compute resources of Google. You had to wait until the time was compressed. Enough in order to be able to tackle the problem. Yeah to get really good results. You want the networks will be really big and that will take a long time to train. Yeah and it's it's It's funny coming from me that we have so much resources that will go train in EURONET still taking a long time And so maybe talk about the the first steps in In that area. Did you jump right into neural architecture? Search or was that the you know a a an end stage or end result of this work where I I on some of the related ideas on and off since two thousand twelve like playing around with how to do. Better hyper profitable tuning and none of that. It's really published. Because I didn't have good results have pugh and so on so so I tried it on and off over the time you know every year I would set out some time to try this idea for a few months and you know and it didn't work very well because like a procurement song and then Two Thousand Sixteen. I met Barrett's off would as my colleague now at Google and he's very talented. So we say oh. Let's let's try at the idea of Jews in like a reinforcement learning to generate and network like a little layer in an network for for a ceasefire model. Seafoam motto. Is already at the time you could say that you know enough of you depends on how where you want to be but you from thirty minutes to a few hours and the seems like about the right amount of time to get this going and my prediction is that you have to train. Maybe either between from one thousand to ten thousand bottles and I did a backup our calculation and thought. Oh this might be the right time to do it but you know I have tried this some of these related ideas in much before
Hollywood Studios Halt Film And TV Production
"All production shutdown in Hollywood so for the people who are supposed to be working including those with contracts. The question now is will they get paid agents? Managers and lawyers are trying to figure that out but as the global pandemic continues to take us into uncharted territory. Answers might be difficult brin. Sandberg is a senior writer at the Hollywood reporter and she's been looking into what the covert nineteen shutdown means for people who work in the entertainment Industry Bryn. Welcome back to the show. Hi John Thanks for having me so. Let's first talk about a legal term. It's called force majeure and as I understand it. It essentially relates to unforeseeable circumstances that prevent a contract from being enforced. How might it apply here? Well John that definitely applies here when we typically see force majeure events. It's it's in relation to Labor strikes. Which is what happened in the two thousand seven to two thousand eight writers strike or is related to a natural disaster like a wild fire or an earthquake but those are usually local so the fact that this is a a global pandemic. It means that it's triggering simultaneous industry-wide shutdowns that kind of force majeure event is sort of without precedent in Hollywood. So a couple of weeks ago. Was that something that companies were really thinking about that. It gave them the option of shutting down a production and not having to worry about being on the hook to pay people. Yeah I think these studios of course know that they have this power if you will In in an event like this and there was a period of time where You know I think people didn't know was it? Was it safe to be around people? Could we stay in production and so and then when it became increasingly clear that that wasn't going to be safe that's of course when when the studios started taking these steps to suspend and again they? A lot of them will reassess. I know Netflix. For example there shutdowns where they said for two weeks before though you know reconsider and so when that when that two week. Marquette's will we'll start to see what some of these two years are going to do with their major projects. How long they can keep them on. Hold and how we all move forward. Does that mean that for some companies. During that two week window they are continuing to pay their cast and crew. And then they'll reassess that decision right so this is this is the interesting question. And this is what of course many actors writers directors producers. You know they all want to know. Okay what about my pay? My still going to get paid during this time. And that's really a big question mark. I spoke with a lot of these. These wraps managers agents lawyers and it seems like in a force majeure event like this. The studio's really like I said they have a tremendous amount of latitude and they do not necessarily have to fulfil contracts but that being said it doesn't mean that That certain companies are not still paying people. So you know. Nbc suspended SNL for the next three shows but they've still committed to paying their employees for those three weeks as though they were working Netflix as well on NBC Universal. You know I heard where we're continuing to pay some of their crew that we're going to be working on those shows for these two weeks during the shutdown so once that period of time is up and these companies do reassess And should they hold these productions indefinitely then it becomes much less likely that they will continue pay people and hold people in their contracts. We're talking with Brin Sandberg a senior writer at the Hollywood reporter about pay during production shutdowns. One of the things that's critical. I think to a lot of people. In the business they are essentially freelancers. Their GIG WORKERS. They have sporadic work. And if they're laid off for a long period of time they might not qualify for unemployment or health insurance. Have there been conversations about how those people might be protected. Even on a federal level there have been calls for you know the government to step in and help given how unprecedented this you know. The situation is I do not know that there's been any resolution yet or any consensus about what is going to happen. I think we're in this murky period of time where we're waiting to see what does happen on top of all of this. There are labor negotiations and contracts. That were happening before. The Corona Virus Pandemic the alliance of Motion Picture and television producers was starting talks with the Writers Guild of America. How might collective bargaining be affected by all of this and might actually benefit one side on the bargaining table? That's a great question. This is a this is a subject that came up a lot when I was talking to these wraps because you know this has been their life for really the past year because the writers have fired their their agents. And then we're about to enter these contract negotiations with the studios. One lawyer told me that you know it now feels like all the time that we spent talking about the wgn in the in the potential strike issues was just rearranging deckchairs on the titanic. You know it's now put into this This whole other perspective and and really it's depending on who you talk to. You will hear different things about who might benefit from this. The most in terms of those those negotiations some managers lawyers and agents will say you know. The writers have less leverage now. Because what are they gonNA go on on strike about and then you have talked to writers you said? I think this helps us. Because any plans that studios had to rush development script production you know before the May deadline which is what they were doing to prepare themselves. If a writer strike were to happen you know those. Those plans have been shattered and now they need writers. You know working more than ever to to create content and so In terms of you know win the actual contract negotiations will happen now That's another big question mark because they were supposed to kick off those talks officially on March twenty third Which is Monday and it seems unlikely that that's going to to move forward on that date now.
Voice Is the Next Form of a Company with Project Voice Founder Bradley Metrock
"What's up everybody? I'm Paul Hickey here. With Bradley met rock he is the CEO of score publishing but he is also many many other things Bradley. Thanks for joining us today. Why don't you give everybody kind of an overview In a little bit of a bio of yourself. I think you're probably going to do yourself justice here. Paul I appreciate it. I appreciate You give me some of your time this morning in Jumping on with the yeah. My name is Bradley. Met Rackham CEO Score publishing which is based in Nashville Tennessee. We are not a normal publisher. So we We do a lot of things that have caused us to be around the center of the conversation on voice technology in the underlying a machine learning that supports it Two and a half three years ago we started a podcast network of voice first. Fm Which is now listened to across fifty six countries by hundreds of thousands of people predominantly technology professionals One of the flat. You know the flagship show voice. I at them has called this weekend voice. I host that myself That show concluded last year with mark. Cuban is the season. Finale guest were in the middle of season. Four right now We produce the voice. I events series which is a well known and enjoyed a series of events leading the discourse on voice technology in a culminating project voice which is number one dead for voice technology in a in America in the week after. Cas So yeah we do. A number of things and We enjoy shining a light on interesting people doing interesting work in the space. And all of the pioneering that's going on and so here we are and thank you fanatic and you and I have Have become really good friends through the work that that we both done in. I'm just kind of educating people and particularly businesses about how they can use a Alexa and Google assistant and the other the other voice assistance in smart speakers out there and I WanNa thank you for all the work that you've done with myself with data driven design team at Jumping a little more of that but I One area that I'm really passionate about is really explaining in. Educating how businesses can benefit from Voice Technology. How many businesses? How familiar do you believe? Businesses currently are with voice APPs Alexa skills and Google actions. Yeah I mean I think it varies but in general it's pretty low and I don't necessarily view it as I view it as defense of in nature rather than offensive in nature. I think a business Really almost any size Almost including mom and pop gas stations. You know but certainly on up from there As you get into the enterprise needs to be working with voice or working with groups like data driven design who are working with voice on their behalf so that they are accumulating knowledge and they're getting acclimated to the space There's plenty you can do with Alexa. Twenty new with Google assistant some of these other voice assistants have interesting functionalities company law like Samsung Bixby. And things like that. But The bottom line is that if you're not Delving into those waters that you're falling behind. You're not understanding You have no hope of understanding how voice search is working now. It will work in the future. You have no hope of understanding sonic branding and how you need to be thinking about that with regards to voice experience You have no hope of understanding. Accessibility related issues. That currently keep a lot of your customers from interacting with you like they might want to and voice would open those doors so I don't view it anymore. I think the time has gone where it's offensive you know. Hey let's get out in front of this thing now. I do it as its defensive. And you're you're behind and you need to get caught up I think business owners and marketers have a tendency to think of voice as just one more thing that they have to learn how to do and one more thing to their long to do list but a good friend of Mine Brin Plumber. Who's over at the National Entrepreneur Center? And she's involved with the national voice. Conference said to me that she was surprised. Coming out of last year's national voice conference at what a low lift boys can be for businesses and how turnkey it can be to actually pluguin to help them be more efficient effective and not be just one more thing to add to their list of things to do. Do you think businesses know that they can build custom applications for Alexa? Google assistant disliked. They can with websites or mobile absent. And how those can actually help them be more efficient and effective. I think some of that knowledge is there. I think They probably don't know you know the reason that it's not that hard to do They just Like a lot of other things they They WANNA turn to professionals. You know and and really You know 'cause there representing their company I I I don't think it's part of the the mental calculus for a lot of companies like do the tools exist. I think it's I think it really boils down to Understanding what the use cases are and understanding what the capabilities are and You know and and for many I just gave a talk last week in San Francisco And to to a room. That should have been on the cutting edge of all this and and Crazy enough. It was a former Amazon employee. Telling him coming up at the end of the show. The talk telling me My God I had no idea about any of that and so you know. It's there's a what you and I have seen. Paul is that The velocity of change with voice technology is so high that there's so many features being added on a weekly basis Because it's all in the cloud to ship anything. All you're doing is changing stuff on the back end and all the user ever noses there's still interacting with Alexa. I don't know about that. New Feature quietly rolled out two days ago. This velocity of change has caused the whole business world to have a lot of catching up to do. I mean it's only the first step to understand. Okay there's people interacting with the LEXIN. Google assistant like these smart speakers are the next form of a once. You realize that you got a long. You're not even close to done. You got a long way to go into in terms of understanding the full scope of what's going on so you know we're all behind in a way because even with a show called this week in voice I constantly joke that You know when I came out with a show I didn't think we would ever have enough lose to fill a week like I thought we would just end up talking about the same stories week after week after week for a while. Now we can't possibly cover everything It it's a joke like we either so much going out and we can't. We have to really be selective so Yeah I mean. It's easy to get overwhelmed. And that's why you have groups like data driven design. That can help you. You need to start getting in there and and learning a thing or two and making mistakes. And and sort of accumulating experience. Because if you don't your competitor is yeah. I think that's well put You're absolutely right about use cases. I I totally agree with you. I think that that's where businesses have gotten hung up recently in my experience investing invoices. They don't totally understand yet. What the use cases potentially be for their audiences whether internal or external how It doesn't necessarily have to be a marketing or a content. Based of boys APP. It can be something internal it can be Alexa for business. Private skill for example. That can just Kinda help. Help me get things done and I think another thing you hit on a really resonates with me that I've tried to talk to business owners marketers recently about that. I'm working with is the concept of a minimum viable product and just getting started and to your point whether we're all behind or whether we're all head You know it. Kinda doesn't matter. It's all about getting started trying something and then building on top of that because you're right. Things are changing so constantly. I sent a proposal out to client To do an Alexa skill for them and then literally like two months later. I had emailed the client and say look. I found much faster ways doing this. That are now available and you know I I can get you this or like you know one tenth of the price now because we had the custom code three months ago now. There's a tool for that. Now you know for example Alexa presentation language. Allow us to do this thing that it didn't allow us to do before and so now we can. We can make these things happen and so I have the same business owners. They kind of get. It are now wanting to wait to see like well. What's going to change next? Maybe something will be a little bit lower

No it's not true back in the end of the Cold Award Dan back it moved back like twenty seconds. Wow it was like back to like the the past the eight on the face of those twenty minutes seconds tick. It's not a second hand. It's a minute hand. It's a minute hand. Yeah they moved seconds this time. But it's a minute hand. Don't worry about it. We'll get to at the end of the show. Are you sure not the only people who have been confused by this. I don't think Jerry Brown governor former California governor. Jerry Brown was very competed. They moved it minutes. Yeah they used to move at minutes. They just can't move any closer. The problem is they've got no more minutes to move it. That's the problem they have to move. Its second month. Well that's just stupid. Of course it's you even tell that it's the whole concept stupid. Oh my God. Why are we going to talk about stick around guys? You'll find out. We got things to say all right. Well Dan I'm sure you're going to be very very excited to hear I already am That the LDS Church church the church. Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints as they want to be known right as They have issued a statement about the fact that they are going to be changing their temple. We'll clothing their ceremonial clothing. Oh Yeah I if if you're a mormon it's important for the rest of us it's it's just it's one of those big. What the fuck well here okay? So here's what people need to know talking about the magic underwear. No which is which which is what they call the temple garment so one could be forgiven for being confused. And that's the stuff that Mormons walk around and every day. It's under their clothes. Yeah if they've been through the temple they're wearing these tremendously stupid underwear. It's also not the clothing building that you change into when you first go into the temple when you walk into the temple and you show your your card and your yes right you gotTa have your membership card. Yeah it's gotta be up to date and you go in go into a locker room and you have costco basically and you have. You can either their rent your sermon clothing right or actually can rent all of it. You can rent you can also rent your your temple clothing And but you get that you go you. May maybe you you brought your own in so you have a little suitcase backpack. That's got got it all in there. And he in change into all white like white pants and White Little Little Booty Shoe thing gentlemen have a suit usually. It's a it's a well. No no no if you're well to do or like high up in the Church leadership then you'd have a white soon otherwise I'll it has to be as white pants in a white shirt. You don't have to have like a suit coat. I'm not saying you have to thank you. It's a whole Colonel Sanders. Look it's true but it's literally white on white on white it's everything your socks Shoes White nightime bought white. o- could one go with the White House. Scott Scott I don't Know Oh cheerio gentlemen anyway. So there's that and then that's what you just sort of walk around the temple right right. Everybody's in all white ladies in white draft but in the ceremony in the endowment ceremony. Right right there. You have this little pouch of the ceremonial clothes and you put them on at certain points. You're instructed put this on put bad on. There's like a little apron thing to call. I think they call them apron. It's Kinda like a Toga over your clothes right Over your shirt and tie the rope. I'm sorry that's what they call that apron actually is like this little green. The only splash of color right green and have that. There's a hat for the men little veil for the ladies right anyway. It's all very fiddly right right. There's there's like there's a point the ceremony where there's a string that's hanging off of your and it looks like a Baker's hat maybe And there's like a little loop on your shoulder and you're supposed to tie that little string onto your shoulder as just such. Oh my God. It's just such it's A. It's all just a mess. It's the weirdest looking thing you can google. It and their image. Yeah and it's it's not very becoming. I will not unless they have decided to change To simplify and make more comfortable. Oh the clothing. How bad it's GONNA be easier to put on care for and apparently to afford making it cheaper for the masses? Okay good you. Don't I have to be a a well-to-do Mormon no anymore to to to not have some shabby old Temple clothing Let's let's see they are so the they're getting rid of the dangling. String from the hat the hat had. How will the hat be tethered to one's body? Not sure how that's GONNA work. Also the men's hat. I mentioned that kind of looks like a Baker's hat or something it looks is like a goofy chef's hat from some yeah strange cartoons like this plastic disk in it. Oh really that sort of gives it its shape shape and four all right That's going away. Oh I'm not sure I think it's more of a beret. Oh a little jonty beret. Hey John and Let's see more durable fabric. I think I mentioned that And says sash will be easier to care for the apron will not change okay right highly symbolic the pro very important. Everything is simple cannot mess with the Apron Brin and this this came out and as always with all these because the LDS church. They've been working rickman the temple ceremony for time. Yeah it's not something. That's that static. The brethren make every so often make little changes and and because it's like behind closed doors and it's all a big secret and memories last only so long the People I think just kind of end up forgetting what it used to be yeah right And one would surprise out. It's not important it's because again. It's all symbolism. Yeah right but Yeah the never ending you know never changing changing and Omni whatever God. Yeah exactly as has yesterday's again David and other administrative change and the clothing this guy this the current president has been shaking things up ever since he took over. Oh I mean I thought nothing could happen happened. The Dude was like ninety three when he took over. I thought you know from now on you. Know little changes in nothing important because they're all just waiting to die. This guy changed. Change the flavor of the Mints Right and Bowl you know. Are there minutes now.

They don't have like food services and they they don't have laundries in the small ones but the big ones have laundries and and cafeterias and so. Yeah like between sessions. I could be doing two sessions. You can just go slip into the cafeteria. Some really bad like mashed potatoes and gravy and all right
How To Talk To Children About Sex
"In this episode the birds and the bees for a new decade. And we should say we're going to deal here with the younger guys say for to the doorstep of puberty because once the pubic hair and the body odor start to kick in. You're GonNa need a whole nother light ship it heading your way. Thank you for that Mental Image Corey So without further ado are I take away of the day take away number one up. Aquinas is not who yeah and a Volva is not a front. We're just GONNA go out on a limb here and say that most of you listening like us might struggle a bit finding and using the accurate words for our private parts. Because it's not what you got when you were a kid inequality. I grew up in the deep South House and my mom would definitely consider as a feminist but she was also a southerner and she used to tell me things like that's dirty or that's your PCP and and so when I had my own daughters and they started asking me questions about their bodies. I thought it'd be a good idea to make up a word. So here's my daughter. Lv She's three three. What do we call the thing that you have in your underwear? What part of your body is that? What's his Nudie Do Boys snooty. No fee has Palma Madera series. I love you taught her the proper term for penis. You're halfway there halfway there that's true. And here's the present. Here's the thing. We don't want anyone to feel badly. I I don't want you to feel badly because the fact is you're not alone so Bonnie rough is the author of the book beyond birds and bees. One thing I never thought I would do is write a book about Sex let alone kids insects but that changed for Bonnie when she moved with her two young daughters from Minneapolis to a place where things pretty differently Amsterdam in the Netherlands so she says it was pretty shocking at first for example at her daughter's Dutch preschool. Teachers were using accurate terms for body body parts and body functions. The children were being helped with their toilet eating in a little bathroom were. They were parties in a row and Children of different genders were really just kind of Able to see and experience the presence of one another's bodies and their body differences as something that is a normal part of everyday the daily life. Wow what a concept and a related idea that struck her about life in Amsterdam was the total nigger kids. Teachers used when they talked about bodies. Instead of a diaper. APOR being Yucky or dirty or stinky it might just be full or empty or wet or dry so giving those body body functions at kind of normalcy. It's so much bigger than just sex. Bonnie saw how all of this openness about bodies lead to happier more or confident kids especially girls yeah and partly as a result. The Netherlands has lower teen pregnancy and abortion rates fewer. She is more gender equal society. The the more we know about our bodies the healthy and happier we are so Dr Core Brunner says the data in the US backs Bonnie refs point up more and better and more pensive. Sex Sex Ed leads to better outcomes kits. Dr Brunner is a pediatrician. And she actually wrote the American Academy of Pediatrics Sex ED guidelines in my poor kids they hung condoms on Christmas trees as ornaments. I mean they have been exposed to all of this for a long time happy holidays. He's with little children. Dr Brin suggests they learn the correct names for penis and Vulva just like you would any other part of the body. You just say it in a way. That's the way you would say. Brush your teeth as opposed to saying that you're female parts or that's down there. You don't say that or Schutte you don't say that and luckily luckily for me and for you if you haven't done this yet it's never too late to start using the right words. My older daughter Lewis eight a promise. She knows the word I get it but I still don't know if I can say the word penis in front of my kit. That is from a series of educational cartoon videos called Amazed Junior here in their intended especially for parents like us who want help talking to our kids about these issues. Yes in this one. A counselor is trying to reassure parents. You're clearly feeling a little awkward. Embarrassment is one of those catchy feelings and most of us caught embarrassment about sexual things from people around us when we were very young long so we never get to find out that these words are just words and that it's really healthy and okay to say them out loud cure right. Why should I be embarrassed to say testicles or erections nipples masturbation Vova Clitoris ejaculation? Screwed up Jonah. Being and if you need them they're two more reasons to get over this embarrassment. Experts say number one the doctor. Yeah if your child is is in pain they can tell the pediatrician or you might testicle. Hurts or my Labia itches. Clear baletic invasion also. Dr Brunner says it's possible that a child who lives in a house house where they feel comfortable and open discussing their private parts will be less vulnerable to sexual predators. And if you're up for it. Bonnie rough has one more concrete suggestion suggestion around normalizing bodies yet. Let your kid be naked when they wanna be even if grandma's visiting if we stay child centered. This isn't about about grandma. Thinks before we move on up. We need a quick acknowledgment. Here we know for some of you may be many of you. This is GonNa be challenging where we're headed and in some cases are guidance may actually conflict with your family's beliefs. We put this kit together based on the best research we could find but but this isn't all an exact science and so what we're really asking you to do is listen and think about what is going to be best for your family So take away number to answer your kids questions. What we've learned is the kids are never too young for you to tell them about their bodies ladies and sex clearly simply honestly and let's not forget briefly or as Dr Brenner puts it? It's important to be factual and concise Jason Loving now. If that's hard for you because you're not yet comfortable. Here's some advice to get their practice in the mirror. got a monitor your facial expressions and your tone own practice before you do it. That's Britney McBride. She's a sex educator with advocates for youth and she's one of the people behind that amazed junior video we heard earlier yeah and Brittany says she benefited from her own family's determination to get this stuff rate. My parents were actually teenagers when they had me and went the complete eight opposite from what they received from their parents. So we started talking about sacs from as early as I can remember. So Britney is based in New Orleans and she has worked with forty of the largest school district in the country to improve sex ED and she says keeping our cool makes us more approachable as parents. And that's really important. Do it in a way that makes them feel safe in that. You are a trusted person to come and talk to about those things. Britney gives the pros approach to the classic classic question. Where did I come from which her own daughter asked when she was maybe five or six years old really? When kid is that young the question is not so much about about sex but instead of space and time? And where was I before I got here. And how did I get here as opposed to the actual act of sex in in how they were created so for young children and this may be familiar from our episodes on race and on death. Find out why they're asking and then answer exactly what they're asking. No more no less so in other words keep things very simple very quick talking about the facts around like anatomy explaining that he grew in in your mom's uterus and that's where a baby lives and grows until they are born and then you were born and you joined family and we've loved you you can cover the rest next time. And that's part of the big point here. The birds and the bees should not be one talk. Your kids need to feel comfortable coming to you with their questions. Time and time again Dan so there is a next time and especially when their questions start getting

She is at being added to the board. I should add. Add the board of directors. So she staying sort of within the trump which which I guess would be. Well I don't know I guess you can speculate one way or the other but at the very least it wasn't any sort of falling out that precluded certainly not release certainly not a falling out between her and Brian Jet Ski. I think he would sort of burn the place down before getting rid of her. It's that tight of a bond however I will say that. It's very clear if you just look at what we've reported sort of around around the sort of a large number of losses. The company has been taking on in the first half of this year. It went from a company in the first half of last year. Where was losing about one hundred hundred and fifty million to now losing about four hundred million in the first half of this year some of that is planned losses asses but I think it's also becoming clearer that the companies getting bigger more complicated and will need to sort of really figure out how to get? Its spending Dang under control if it's going to go into public offering with the story of you know we are a rare example of a money-making he making we. We've seen the markets react unfavourably to companies like we work and others that are just losing massive amounts of cash. I'll be Uber Brin lift. Haven't had a great time in the market so airbnb struck me as the one that could tell a slightly different narrative if you want to back a tech company. That isn't just an money. Inferno were were your guys girls totally and I think it's what investors I think will be trying to understand is will airbnb will be able to level up and be a company that was more than just one that had a great business model great you know sort of customer demand and you know in the first decade of its life and be able to sort of add to that efficiently and add more business lines execute dude on sort of policy goals execute on experiences and China and all the other kind of things they wanna add onto the core business. That just means that this is getting more complicated. And there's just going to continue to be I think Sort of a question of of the right leadership going forward right so so. You mentioned a couple of initiatives and I do want to circle back to that at the end of of this chat because firstly you did mention policy stuff so that's been like you know Ongoing Stumbling Block AIRBNB. It seems to flare up every every couple of months when when certain politicians and cities yeah work to regulate them ban and whatever it is. What's what's the latest on the AIRBNB Policy Front? Yeah you're right. This is something they've they've been you know. Number one or number two risk for AIRBNB for years is nothing new I think what investors and other folks are getting antsy about as airbnb gets closer to going the public is where is it. How's IT faring? In New York. That's one of the biggest tourist destinations in the world can make their if you can make get in New York Concrete really made it. That's how they say it you make it here. You've done it boy. Yeah and I think one worrying sign was the fact that it lost the AIRBNB spent big to try to win sort of ballot referendum in Jersey City earlier this month and lost in a pretty significant landslide slide and and that loss essentially restricts their business in a key market you know adjacent to New York and New York itself is long been in sort word of this regulatory gray area in Airbnb hasn't been able to win over hotel unions and other sort of sort of opponents in New York so you know it's all it's going to be an issue for AIRBNB. They have wins. They have losses. I think right now what I think people are going to want to understand is are they winning more than they're losing or are they losing more than they're winning and that was a blend of Johnson Sort of place you oversaw. She oversaw the policy team. I haven't I've been able to independently. Say that. You know if she sort of any kind of policy related losses. Wait her way in her. Her but I think the question we we should raise the question and we should be watching this going forward and I imagine it'll be interesting to see the effect that the presidential title campaign has next year and the kind of rhetoric coming out of I would imagine mostly the democratic side depending on who the nominee is about the relationship between government and tech. And if we're seeing being what we've seen in the past couple of months which is a lot of people kind of on the left taking a very adversarial approach tech companies. You know taking pride. In the fact that Amazon John pulled out of going to New York and You know the fact that Amazon loss to kind of embarrassing battle in in Seattle for a town council position or city council position You know that could affect airbnb to write. You know like if we're seeing a climate that's very pro regulation and an anti tack than Airbnb is kind of line to the street that they've got this regulation poses a figure it out just seems kind of weak it could you know they benefit from the fact that their relationship with the labor force if you will is not as contested as like an uber you know they the people that they rely on to has sort of put their homes on AIRBNB are like a little bit more middle
