Meet the Brain Behind Facebook's Oversight Board

"I want to tell you a story about a friend and a colleague of mine. His name is noah feldman one afternoon. Back in twenty. Eighteen noah was taking a bike ride in the hills around palo alto california. He was visiting from the east coast. The bike ride was a little break from seeing friends. And doing is meetings. But no is not your average mountain biker. He's a constitutional law professor at harvard and one of the country's best he even helped to draft iraq's interim constitution so as no was cranking around the hills of old honda road he was thinking about a company with its headquarters nearby. Maybe you can guess. He was thinking about facebook. I happen to be staying with my friend. Sheryl sandberg who. I went to college with her. And she's the co or facebook but not for anything to do with facebook. I was just out there and it was nice to see her. No was thinking a lot about the relationship between his field constitutional law and the struggle that platforms have keeping people safe online. Think about the social media companies the more they grow the more content their users post not all the content is going to be so nice and friendly and when you get more content. You're bound to get more hateful speech as well. It's just really hard to keep all the bad stuff off the platforms. It's always an uphill battle for these social media companies and not unlike the uphill battle that noah found himself on during his bike that it was much too hard for me. And i had that you know oxygen deprivation field that you get when you're trying to climb hills too hard for you and i was sort of in my mind and one part of that was trying to figure out how the social media companies were themselves dealing with the challenges. A free speech. It's not the question of how governments were dealing with them and free speech but how they were thinking about it internally no hyperventilating about to give and sure enough it worked and i had an idea and the idea that came into my mind was that facebook content moderation supreme court all day. Oh yea whoa. I wrote it up in a you know twelve or thirteen hundred word document. I thought maybe i can publish. It isn't bad and showed it to charlotte because she was my host and she said to me.

"Workers did not come sir haphazardly. From around the entire country of china they came ninety percent maybe even more from a relatively small area four counties in southern china near hong kong near macau in the early eighteen hundreds. This area was rife with conflict civil wars between different ethnic groups. The opium wars waged by the british. People could even watch the battles on sea. Between the chinese and british forces from the shoreline and in this war-torn region word began to spread about an opportunity in a particular region of the united states notion of california being go mountain became embedded and became legendary. They heard the glorious stories of wealth from just going over there and picking up gold nuggets in the streams of california soon. Many young men from this region set out for california a lot of them intended to one day. Come home sometimes. They were married. Just before say ritz. Leave because their parents wanted to make sure that they return but once they got to california there were some who were very eager and homesick and wanted to return. They had wise or sweethearts back in china and they wanted to be with them or with their parents. Others were much not so philly hill. And i so conventional but liked the money that they got in the united states the latitude or freedom. Young men van -joyed in the wild west there is lots of opium there is prostitution and there was work to be had including prospecting for gold. Which though ching notes it's draped in romanticism. Now was difficult dangerous. Work it involved moving earth using explosives and when the gold rush was winding down. Many chinese immigrants use that experience to find other work opportunities irrigation systems road systems acquiesced systems said a lot of infrastructure work and when it comes to infrastructure work there was no bigger project at the time than the transcontinental railroad.

Last year. broken unfortunate record where during the period of kobe we had three back to back domestic violence homicides in another way i like to bring that to give people an actual picture with that site that means the last year eight. Children went through the holidays without their mother. That would that looks like and globally is what i understand it because of social teen and the inability or survivors to be able to access immediate help.

That's right Jerry lawson who passed away in two thousand eleven was an engineer and designer at fairchild camera and instrument company in silicon valley there. He led a team that created a game system called the fair fairchild video entertainment system now a lot of you may not have heard of that and the reason you may not have heard of this because a year later the atari twenty six hundred came out in nineteen seventy seven but the reason the fairchild consoles important is because that was the first one that could play an unlimited number of games because it was the first us games on cartridges. Obviously that led to eventually an entire video game industry. You know where you could buy whatever game she wanted and put him in play them and take them out and changed another game. A lot of the early game systems had all the games. Hardwired in or they used other more rudimentary types of data. Anyway so now.

"Energy fuels our lives in ways that seem magical energy turns darkness into light cold into warm water into ice but of course. That's all physics. Not magic but energy is kind of like magic if you think about the rules. Magic is all chaos. This is from the netflix series. The witcher conjuring something from nothing. There is a give and a take. The same is true for energy you never create or destroy energy. You only converted for one form to another. That's clifford johnson. He's a professor in the physics and astronomy department at the university of southern california. There's a fundamental law. Perhaps one of the most fundamental laws in physics is what's called conservation of energy which is precisely this idea that it it changes from one form to another but you never really destroy it or created. Let's say you want to make a couple of team you turn on the stove and energy is released. It's either the chemical energy stored in the gas that you're going to then burned or electrical energy coming in through the wires. The energy from the stove converts as the water heats up the temperature of the water represents how much energy every individual water has on. What they're doing is they're really just jiggling around And you're making the jiggle more. Raise the temperature. You pour the water into the t pod. It warms up hot the air around the table.

"That's the stock. After popping up in the pre market from the story this morning did fade throughout the day. Finishing down one point one percent to six hundred and sixty three dollars fifty four cents that compared to the nasdaq which recovered to end the day. Finishing up four tenths of a percent as getting into the electric story. This was published about three hours before market open today. Article headline reads tesla's demand is through the roof already. Sold out this quarter. Electric rates quote tesla's currently seeing exponentially strong demand for its vehicles as it is already sold out for the quarter according to sources familiar with the matter and quote expanding on that they also right that quote sources familiar with the matter told electric that tessa communicated to employees that production capacity for the second quarter is already sold out with still almost two months left in the quarter and quote. This would follow. Elon musk's comment on the qn earnings call at the beginning of last week. Where he said demand is the best they've ever seen now. It's not really unusual for tesla to be quote unquote sold out for a quarter. I would say happens. Most quarters in fact but generally that happens in waves in accordance with how tesla decides to you. Prioritize shipments of vehicle for example were five weeks into the quarter. At this point in time it would be pretty typical for maybe international deliveries to be sold out as tessa would be prioritizing and be production of for overseas markets so they have time to ship it deliver it within the same quarter then a few weeks after that we might predominantly see the east coast being sold out and tesla just prioritizing production for delivery in california where that surround time is the fastest selling out for an individual quarter. Wouldn't be anything new but to do it at this point in the quarter again just five weeks in would seem to be. I don't know probably the earliest. We've seen that happen in the last couple of years. Oftentimes and past quarters. We've also seen tesla offer a small quarter and incentive to make sure that people either take delivery when they're scheduled or as a way of balancing demand in a specific location because tussle authorship vehicles before they actually have orders in anticipation of demand in that location. But of course you can never forecast those things perfectly so some of those quarter and incentives can help bounce those out notably. I didn't see any indication of doing anything like that in key.

"California Public employees retirees. In the National Enquirer. We'll talk about that in a few minutes. This is one of these situations where you know, if this is your household. Maybe you need to come down hard on your sons and make some changes apparently a mother up in the Santa Rosa area had to call nine one one because her son's got into a bloody fight over a broken marijuana Bong. The day comes and you have to call nine one one because you sons are cutting each other with the jagged glass, it's too late. After one of them broke, the Bong, and they got into a fight over it. You got you got you already blew it though. You got a couple of near dwells who were just slacking off. This is how old they are nineteen and twenty oh you missed the boat. Yeah. Yep. Yeah. You screwed up Samuel j for row. F A U R O T. You nineteen was on the porch when cops arrived, and he was he was washing away blood. I guess trying to clean up the evidence. He was cutting his brother with the broken glass, the jagged edges the brother had lacerations and wounds. Police detained him and his mother and found the brother who had been stabbed bleeding profusely from his wounds. He was lying across the street where he'd gone to hide from the brother. The brothers been hospitalized for some stab wounds and lacerations, and he is twenty years old. Good work. I'm sure they're going to be useful. Where is this near Santa Rosa, Santa Rosa? I don't know if it was in Santa Rosa was reported by Santa Rosa Lee, probably children of hippies. That's what happens. No disciplined overrules. School. Yeah. No, stab at each other with Bong shards. What are the funnier stories we've seen lately, which brings CalPERS into question as the California Public employees retirement system, it's humongous, of course. Because even though the private sector long ago decided you cannot pay fixed pensions to employees for the rest of their lives. So you'll go bankrupt. We haven't learned that yet in the public sector. We ever will. Because the unions have a stranglehold on the politician it goes bankrupt. That's what they'll learn. Now. I think that I think would eventually she'll just raise tax money. That's okay. Each soaking tax payers to make up the difference. That's where exit you have always the union you have to get out dominance over the politicians. Every state pretty much has this states, give their employees. I think father got to fix pension from New York, California is most generous and has the biggest big one of the biggest deaths. I think Illinois has a slightly larger debt as a percentage of Konami. We're one of the worst states. Well through an investment managed by New Jersey. Hedge fund California's public pension fund CalPERS appears to have owned as much as one third of American media Inc. Which is the national enquirers parent company. Third a third. I mean, that's that's that's really size when I saw the strength of. Well, it's probably just a few thousand shares or something about a third of it. I guess it was working for them. And it's sort of like, well, maybe they didn't know they just hired the hedge fund the hedge fund makes the investments and they picked American media because they thought that the stock. Yeah. Actually, they invested this through a hedge fund run by Chatham asset management and Chatham has only returned two point three percent a year. Since they made the investment in two thousand nine. No, it is low. It's it's bad. If CalPERS just put money into an index fund. They would've made five times as much money. Is there some connection they had to this fund CalPERS? Oh, many years of Calpers's notorious for making bad investments, they have like stupid people running it. And and every few years, there's another story about a bad CalPERS investment. And they never they never seemed to come close to what the market is giving. And by the way was one fund something called the Eureka fund. And apparently ninety nine percent of it is held by CalPERS. Well, that doesn't sound like you're spreading the risk much all the money in one fund. They make they make decisions over the years. A number of articles Chatham asset management snapped up a majority stake in American media in twenty fourteen the publisher was struggling to emerge from twenty ten bankruptcy. And he's a financial lifeline. So it almost looks to me like this company, which is Chatham asset management hedge fund, they they basically we're using the CalPERS money to exact their own gains. That's how it looks to me because they took the money in the they took Alpers money invested in American media of which they own a majority stake. So the so the teachers the. The government workers in California. One of their big investments was in a newspaper that was going out of its way to trash Hillary Clinton and protect Trump. They were the ones paying Trump's girlfriends the berry stories about his indiscretions. Any? That's just that's nice irony. Isn't it is? One of the most anti Trump, public employees. Apparently, there's was one point nine member invest in his propaganda outlet. Because he's such close friends with the with the publisher of the National Enquirer. And they were they were the ones going after Jeff Bezos and his mistress. Now CalPERS wants to make it clear to things that they are winding down their investments in hedge funds over the last five years and the Chatham Chapman. Hedge fund did represent a small percentage of their three hundred and fifty billion dollar pension fund. It shows you just how big this thing is how mantra services and you're responsible for it listeners. Oh, yes. The employee's kick into know a lot of the money comes from the state in from the towns and cities have to kick into the pension fund, which is your tax money, right? Supposedly the pension fund has closed down a majority of its investment in this them Eureka fund, the remaining stake now is supposedly a little more than two hundred million dollars. But you're right. Calpers has seen an unimpressive. Two point three percent rate of annual return out of its regional investment in the Eureka fund in two thousand nine doesn't somebody look at that like a couple of years ago? It's not working for us. Should we look around for? I mean, what does it sit there for nine years serve their lazy? There's there's always a bottom ten percent of investment firms. Bottom ten percent of hedge funds a bottom ten percent of anything in life. Right. You're right. There's a you wonder who they are this is it this is it CalPERS is in the bottom. Ten percent. It's like being the stupidest guy, you know, at at an Ivy league school somebody's graduating last. So, you know, there's only so many smart people in the world. And I think there's a lot better jobs in the investment in the investment profession, then running a government workers fund. I mean, if you're showing up for that job, how many other jobs have you been kicked out of? The other people won't hire you if you're available to run the California government, pension, and the other irony here is that the Cowboys is one of these funds that always claims their pension fund that they tried to be socially responsible and this supposed to just get money for people. So the tax payers don't get hosed a little less enough with their social responsibility, and they're politically correct investments and here they ended up here. They ended up investing in Trump. All right. When we come back. A couple of things to say concerning last week's big stories and the people that went in the dumpster Friday. The Justice small at story is taken a couple of new turns coming up, John and Ken KFI. Debra Mark has.

It was a master's program where you get a teaching credential with it I spent all of twenty seventeen school year looking for a teaching job. So I taught that whole year applied to thirteen different school districts did not hear a single thing back so kind of a shot to the confidence a little bit. Well, but let's let's dig let's dig into that.

This guy is sharp. He loves teaching. He's ready to go. He's got the master's. He's qualified to teach. He's ready to go. We need to look at him as that happened. I don't think I applied that principle properly even wrote that I I've got a full page of notes here before I called. Let's okay. I don't I don't ask you that to get on you. I just wanna know did you in any of those thirteen job applications were they submitted for you by somebody? Who knows you and could validate, you know. Yeah. That's the problem.

I'm pointing this out because I want your confidence to be back up where supposed to be because you know, that you've got what it takes. And you know that you love teaching. Yes. Yeah. Absolutely.

I think it's like combine now, but, but if I told you that I played the last thirteen today, man, man, I just bought one ticket and our about five minutes. I played all thirteen. And I didn't win. My confidence is shot. What would you say? It was pretty funny. What makes sense, right? You go. You go kin.

"Dealers? Hello, all right. Taking a look here at the bay bridge. Toll plaza the metering lights, of course, are on eighty westbound slow from university on eighty westbound five eighty back to twenty four about a fifteen minute delay at the tolls. Monday morning, ninety nine northbound at one twenty this isn't Mantica we have a multi car crash up to six cars over to the right shoulder. The HP reporting a problem on northbound eighty seven and Winchester boulevard in San Jose, three vehicles involved in Iraq, one of them hit some debris, which they think caused this to begin with. So just keep an eye out in that area and eighty five southbound at Basco, and we have a large coil of wire in the right lane. Your Bart ride is checking in at this time. Problem-free Toyota is operation. Black Friday is still in motion right now get a thousand dollars cashback on Camry or Camry hybrid, look, no further for black Friday deals. Hurry in it all ends on December third Toyota. Let's go places. The case of all morning show continues now with Brian Sussman on talk radio five, sixty cancer. Vo we'll get into the media nightmare involving minority. Pro Trump voters in just a moment. We're talking about the fire. So here's the latest. This is like as of twenty nine minutes ago, seventy seven confirmed deceased nine hundred ninety three still listed as missing nine hundred ninety three. So that's a decrease of two hundred eighty three people since yesterday. Okay. That's that's if we're looking for any good news. So that's it. One hundred fifty thousand acre fire sixty five percent contained the rains that are coming in certainly will help with that. Also evacuation or well, see people forget the fire. If sixty five percent containment that means the fire still burning. And. Evacuation orders for Hamlin canyon and lower Neil have been reduced to warnings. Okay. So that's good. So those areas are being reopened I residence, and then to the general public, although many other evacuation orders are still in place. They also lifted. Evacuation orders for the still send canyon road humble road to lazy lane. According to the sheriff's office. Just trying to give you the latest right now. Dennis fire in one thousand acres. Yeah. Yeah. So deadliest fire in California history. In a wildfire. I should say because the deadliest fire was the city of San Francisco nineteen sixty earthquake three thousand people perished over three thousand. So this has destroyed over ten thousand homes now at three thousand other structures. This is as of last night. So that's the latest there. So we're we're watching PG and E stock just continue to plummet bed. No official cause. But there are certainly some curious things that did happen about the time of that fire going down in so lawsuits are already being filed shot is in Roseville. So Sean, you know, one of the four PG knee workers who have a pension that pension fund is a standalone that'll never be bothered by anything goes down with the company because they headlines this morning are wondering will PG survive. Good morning to you, Sean. Go ahead. Please. Good morning, Brian here, really the little guys your show. Thank you for what you do. And just really appreciate you this this. This thing really bothers me. I'm glad that the pension is a standalone thing, retire me retiree from law enforcement, you know, but I gotta tell you. My wife told me over the weekend. Jerry Brown syrup typically signed a Bill with allows PG need to raise their rage to cover their the impending lawsuits, which you know, while I don't like the idea of them going bankrupt. They have mismanaged their company to this point and caused these problems, and they couldn't get things squared away. And and there's been loss of life and loss of property. Maybe someone else that's more prepared and better equipped should come in and be offer offer something better than what genie is offering. And if Jerry Brown did this, and I wouldn't be surprised if he did. That's shady. Well, let's, you know, showing first of all thanks for all your wonderful Koplowitz. And this is a great point. Let's dive into it here on k supposedly will cut you off. Let you hang up on yourself at seven forty nine. The best. I can tell is. I believe he's correct. I think the California legislature did actually. Decide the private utilities should be allowed to raise customers electricity rates to help cover wildfire liabilities. If that was necessary to. Fend off forestall bankruptcy. I'm pretty sure that that's something that went down. I'm racking my brains here. I think it was earlier this year. I. Well, we'll look it up. I'm pretty sure that that was the deal. So in other words. The California Public utilities commission would be the. I mean, they'd have to sell it to the California Public utilities commission. California Public utilities would have to approve it. But I believe the legislature did say to forestall bankruptcy p genie could raise its rates in the event of a lawsuit from a wildfire. I'm pretty sure was earlier this year. You're right. Okay. So that's something that the legislature did pass Brown signed. Yes. The legislature passed a Bill in September. Okay. There you go. Yeah. So the legislature has allowed for this kind of like they're too big to fail and then because okay on the one hand. What if you don't have a PG and help? Now, what do you do? They do supply us with their power. So that seems like a mess in itself. They would have to raise their rates to cover for the lawsuits, but think about this. So then it's the people of California. The the users the utility users that are punished. For the screw ups by exactly so we ended up actually having to pay a we foot the Bill, exactly. So when they say that they can't afford that lawsuit. It's just that. They don't have enough of our money on hand to pay for said lawsuits. So we end up. Our utility bills are already the highest in the country. So now, they will rise further. If lawsuits are successful against them. Used to be this fire at its cause. Okay. For one five eight zero eight fifty six hundred on case. Interesting full circle, isn't it? Yeah. It is. You don't really think about that way? I hadn't thought. Well, I forgot about that piece of legislation. I did too. Bullets relatively new. I mean, it just got signed over in September. So. So now, we have Donald Trump. We don't have time to develop this right now. Because we've got a little Rush Limbaugh update for you coming up in just a moment. But I know people say it's one hundred percent false. But actually, it's one hundred percent true. And it's from Rasmussen a great pollster saying that forty percent of blacks in this country support Donald Trump is okay. So what's going on with that? What does that mean going forward? Did you hear about Trump's tweet all full of chef? Losing their over his tweet this morning. We'll talk about that as well. You've come to the right place. But you already know it. That's why you're here. Chaos. Afo morning show. There is a new survey by the Pew Research Center, says most Americans still believe in God. But not as many millennials do only forty-three percent of millennials say, they believe in the God of the bible only seventeen percent of them regularly attend church almost two thirds of Americans over fifty believe in the biblical God fifty two percent of them attend church services regularly. Now in addition to this age divide when it comes to belief in God, there's also a political and racial divide, white Republicans and non white Democrats are far more likely to believe in God. Then the white Liberal Democrats who run the democrat party, I should say who are running the democrat party into the ground. The bottom line is that an overwhelming number of young adults in America have been raised to be godless and white Liberal Democrats for the most part are still godless ninety. If you've tried to figure out the root causes. Of hopelessness, and despair, and anger and intolerance coming from Molyneaux, top Democrats. You might have just found the answer absence of God in their lives. Don't doubt me..
