Much of drought-plagued West Coast faces salmon fishing ban
"Much of the drought plagued West Coast is facing a salmon fishing ban. The Pacific fishery management council will soon consider three proposals that all call for the closure of the 2023 salmon season from Oregon to California. Probably a third of my income. It won't be available this year. Fisherman bob mahari is in San Francisco. This one ain't on us. This has nothing to do with overfishing. This is poor management. Of water. Experts fear California salmon are in a spiral toward extinction. Buyer Joe Conti says this is going to hurt. There is other seafood out there. Crab, there's different things that we can sell. But nothing matches local king salmon. I mean, that's what everybody wants. That's the big seller. A fisherman's group believes the salmon band may need to be in place for two or three years to bring back sustainable stocks after many fish died in 2020. I'm Ed Donahue

I've just not play the horns at any point. You know, I honestly hadn't thought about it. I noticed that the triumphant theme was not there, but I hadn't thought about it in quite that way until you just said at the top of this conversation that this was an attempt to kind of distance to kind of create the creed universe, as opposed to being reliant on the rocky narrative. I think that's right. I think that's insightful. But they use the rest of the music or it's not the app. But it's inflected, but it's enough of a reference. That I was waiting for it.

And I was like, the tear ducts were open, and I was ready to start absolutely weeping. And then it just didn't happen and I walked out of the theater and texted you angrily. What the fuck? Where's the sock? So that's my note. I had this interesting experience last night of rewatching the end of rocky two and then starting to watch rocky three, forgetting that the beginning of rocky three is literally just the final two minutes of rockies. So I watched that twice, but I bring that up to say that when the Bill Conti theme drops at the end of rocky two and yo Adrian, I did it. First of all, I was just in tears. This is an unbelievable movie moment.

Another major story this afternoon we are learning Washington commander's owner Dan Snyder's future is on the agenda for discussion at upcoming NFL committee meetings in Florida. They come before the annual league meeting in Arizona in late March. And it's all because of news that's been breaking since last night. Did Dan Snyder knowingly keep minority owners out of the loop, a federal investigation into alleged financial misconduct by the owner and the team is honing in on who knew about a disputed $55 million loan. In April 2020, we learned Dan Snyder was parting ways with minority owners of the then Washington football team, three billionaires who carried 40% of the franchise. ESPN reports documents show that breakup may have been over a secret $55 million loan that Snyder took out 16 months earlier without his partner's approval. Multiple sources with knowledge of the federal investigation tell ESPN that a grand jury subpoenaed financial records around the loan, the report says Snyder's former partners demanded the NFL investigate, but that didn't happen. And instead, mediation resulted in the partner selling their shares. Meanwhile, The Washington Post reports Snyder is threatening to sue the league and other NFL owners if they don't agree to shield him from any liability and cost if he sells the team.

"It's about a 20 minute walk from the headquarters of the Federal Reserve, technically the Mariner S eccles Federal Reserve board building on constitution avenue in Washington. Over to The White House. Less probably if you got a White House ID and you don't have to go up to the visitor entrance on Pennsylvania avenue. So L brander is going to have a pretty quick jaunt over to our new office, The White House announced today that the current vice chair of the fed is going to be the next director of the national economic council, which means that she's going to move from helping to set interest rates to helping to set the economic agenda for the Biden administration. In other words, switching from monetary policy to fiscal policy. Marketplace is Stephanie Hughes, is on that one. Monetary and fiscal policy both sound vaguely money ish. To keep them straight, I find. Etymology helps. Fiscal comes from the Latin word viscous, which means basket. Back in Ancient Rome, the government stored taxpayers money in baskets. Peter Conti Brown at the Wharton school, thinks of it this way. When you hear fiscal policy think that tough value laden decisions that are politicians must make about public money. So when to pull money out of the basket and spend it, or put more in there by taxing. Whereas. Monetary policy is about the value of that money. And raising or lowering interest rates to change money's value. That's the job of the Federal Reserve. To have someone move from making monetary to fiscal policy? It's not uncommon, but it's not common. Harvey rosenblum worked for the Federal Reserve for more than four decades. He's an economist and says that the fed, everyone speaks economist. But at The White House or in Congress, you've got hundreds of dialects that you're trying to understand about where people are coming from and they're dripping by ideology. In monetary policy, people are driven by the data. At the Federal Reserve, the main job is to keep the economy steady, so Stanford's John Taylor. And I think the person who moves from the fed to The White House has more information about that than most people. One example, treasury secretary Janet Yellen, who used to be the fed chair. But Peter Conti Brown of Wharton cautions against having too many fed alum in The White House. Will we get a diversified set of views to the president that isn't just reflecting whatever the fed wants to be done? Conti Brown says sometimes central bankers fall into a

"But there are some ceilings. I would call it in the middle, right? And previously organizations like, for example, my dear, which I worked for. We used to build up our own team. Just from ground up, of course, we're leveraging some libraries, right? Spacey, NLTK, you name it, right? Those were available, but nothing like Raza, right? And we selected a bunch of things. We really want to we really want to use and it's been, I wouldn't say there's a pain, but it's a lot of effort, right? And. We were selective. But nothing were available as ra's, or it was not mature enough. But now, there's a lot of communities growing up on top of that. And we'll be able to quickly, it's a matter of you understand as a developer, right? You understand how to use it, but also you have, you have access to the great community to basically, if you encounter any questions, you're not on your own. And for organizations, that sits in the middle, right? You have, you basically can you can choose whatever you want. And you can use the package as a whole. If you want to have if your users now dictates that you need a great NER on date and time. You can use you want to use duckling. And Raza has support that there. And you're not on your own, bringing the duckling. There's native support, basically. And there's some newer models based on Transformers, for example, there is a diet classifier. You can just use that off the shelf. It's going to be easier. And it's more flexible than local. I'm glad you brought this up too, because I think this is an interesting thing because Ross is obviously very powerful tool, very flexible as you mentioned. But the complaints that I hear about it is that it's too flexible. They need too sophisticated a team to get it implemented or they need too large of a team to implement it. And then you've got other things out there, maybe sound town, which is a little more packaged. That they could utilize, maybe it's not all the way to no code, but it's got flexibility, but you're not on your own as much. And so as we think about all these different use cases, like you have a very novel niche use case, which is process oriented, which I think is really interesting. We have all these others, which are just like company owned assistants that they want for whatever functional solution. As we start to see more of these independent assistants, these custom brand owned assistants, we use all these different terms, are you assuming that.

"Good. So the NLU, if you built that in-house, tell me just a little bit more about that. Yeah. So, especially has the ASR plus and I'll use solution. So initially, we'll be using that. And we are currently building our in-house NLU just to tackle some problems once in some cases, right? When you really want one earns to go into some intent, right? It's possible that from a product perspective from a user experience perspective, you really want some irises to go to some other intent or to match something else. Other than they linguistically should go to. So there are some corner cases, but there are corn cases, but once they're identified, usually and they are gathering some attention within your organization, which means they are no longer chronic. It's very important cases. And we're building we're building that. So it's going to be some iterations for us. And we will be and at that point. I think the strategy has been, at that point, we'll be carrying a lot more data based on the specific user scenarios. And we will have that domain specific data to build a better and house NLU engine at that point. Yeah, fair enough. And are you using speech for dialog management as well? We are we are doing a little of that, but we also have a range specific logic on that would make sense. Yeah. Yeah, that would make sense. You've built a very generous asking or answering all my questions. Tell me what I should have something else that I should have asked you that we should talk about. We'll just close on maybe a few minutes of that. Or probably if you wanted to see our thoughts on some recent trend in the voice space. Yeah, absolutely. I'd love to hear that. Okay, yeah. Yeah, I can share some thoughts about that. So I think it's been it's been some shift from larger players building first party assistant. And then to some smaller players, smaller developers smaller organizations building their own custom assistance for very domain specific users now roles. But then that would be that would require some platforms like local no code platforms provided by bigger players, they are just helping out there. They're helping out. With their in-house technology, they'll open it up, not everything, of course. But they provide the platform and very friendly user interface for smaller organizations to build on. By specifying the use cases in terms of the slots, and they have some building slots. We've all seen that. But there is a shift recently, especially with the communities around Raza. For example, that I would say it's in the middle. So it's in the middle because the organizations that may be in the middle in terms of the size or in the middle in terms of their ambitions. They want to build a voice experience. They want to be able to custom voice assistant. But they want to be more flexible than local no code solutions. Which is quick. We're just quick to bring up..

"Understood. Well, now, Kim, you just talked about audio branding with the tones. Obviously one of those would be a voice, right? So probably voices are not unique. If you looked at that, is that on the road map, where do you put that in priorities range? It is. It's something we've explored, and it is something we've talked about on the road map. Again, to Chen's point, though, these technicians, you know, overall using voice in the job site is a new behavior. And in order to really sell it in both to the shop owners as well as the users who are working on the car, it needs to be about speed. And so it's tricky for us in design and product to say we want it to look absolutely beautiful and we want an orb to sort of represent the voice and we want it to have this great unique brand and sound and the way that we want to customize even some of the SSML. At the end of the day, they just want the answers faster than they get them today. So it's on the road map, not a priority right now. Yeah, fair enough. Okay. Jen, just coming back to earlier comment that you made about this idea of data scarcity. One of the things that would occur to me is that you're going to have lots of different accents of people who are speaking to the system. And are you able to just address that because there's this combination of accent plus technical terminology? Are you able to address that with the existing datasets that are out there or is this something that you're building your own dataset on that specific to what you're building? I think so far so far, we haven't been seeing a lot of challenges in our co creating users. I guess it's going to be a challenge if we start to support more languages. So yeah, currently, I think there's our system is pretty robust in terms of having accent. It's basically built in with like the noise, right? Like the denoise question you ask earlier. And neural network based solutions over all over the place, right? So, but that's sad. It's on our road map if someday we will need to tackle some specific accents. We really want a technology to be accessible. But a lot of different types of users. If there is really an accent challenge, that's for one. And also from another language, right? The demographic of this group of workers. They may prefer some other languages. That's also on the road map, but it's not a priority right now. So we will be able to do that once we start tackling that problem. But so far for U.S. English, it's been pretty good, I think. No big problem on that front. And what are you using for your ASR? We partner with speech lead. Okay, I'll use them speechly. Yeah, that's good..

"So okay, so and I'm glad you brought up multi-million because that was my next topic, but before we get to that, just on the microphone side. So you're doing near field on tablets today. I presume that people could actually just use earbuds with that if they wanted because it's already going to connect to the device. Are you doing de noising before you hit the ASR? We are, but I think I wouldn't even call it near field because the way I look at it in your field is within two inches. That is really near field and that's where when I talk about the optional accessories, the microphones, of course, that's near field. It's kind of a but it's not far field course. It's not like 12 feet. And that doesn't make sense, of course. You won't be able to hear it. But yeah, I think we've gathered some of the environmental noise recordings and also some speech recorded on top of the background noises. In some scenarios, it could be very challenging. If there is impact wrenches, that suddenly it's not constant. And the constant background noise, it's more or less a soft problem, even if it's at a higher decibel. I think it's more or less the solve problem. But for sudden noises, you know, that would be a harder problem to solve. But the idea is we have recordings. And we work with our partners to actually to actually train the ASR to be noise robust, at least. In the two inch, of course, that's an easier problem solved. But more of a couple of inches away, where you have your card right next to the bay, you're working with. A couple of inches away. Yeah, the modality in form factor has been interesting because obviously we're wearing both the technical challenges of either being in an open speaker or having a mic attached to you, as well as this new customer behavior where we've seen different behaviors in the garage and different technology setups today where we do think there are tech technicians and use cases where they will ask an open question of the assistant and want to stand there and interact with it from a speaker and screen perspective. And then we also know there's other cases where just certain types of users might be more private and they want to ask their technical question with a microphone right on them. At the same time, there's a very physicality of the work that they're doing. If they're taking off a wheel, having all sorts of equipment on this technician doesn't always make sense either. So this is one of the things that we're really excited to test with our current users is both the auction for a variety of modalities and form factors. What are the osha regs on air protection? Yeah, so from what we've seen, it's not quite as significant as in, say, the construction construction universe. These technicians. And that's part of the reason, as we've talked to them in terms of beta testing, why you've also started with this, they make a lot of technology decisions on their own and the ocean regulation isn't quite as significant there. Got it. Okay. So they typically are not going to have any type of ear worn devices, either for sound protection or for inputs, but that's an option they could use because you're connecting to a tablet and Bluetooth works. Correct. Yes, and some of them we've observed today, you know, it depends on the shop. Some of them do have an ear button, they're listening to music. Others, that's depending on the shop that's actually not allowed. It often depends on the shot. Yeah, fair enough. Okay, from a multimodal standpoint, you allow voice input, I assume you allow touch input as well. Correct. Okay, so you have voice and so you can have voice in, you can have touch in, you can have display out, but you also can have audio out, correct? Response? Yes. Okay, so.

"If you start a project, like how does it work? Yeah, so how we started out the conceptualization of the product today? No, actually, like you signed a new customer and what happens next? Oh, sure. Yeah, so again, I mean, we've spent a lot of time co creating with these garages to begin with. From the very beginning. So we've been in the shops and there's an interesting point about this product that it's not one of those types of things that you can launch behind a desk. Because the value is around the time and efficiency and this idea that the technicians are walking around a vehicle walking around a shop and there's noise and sound constraints as well. We've had to be building with those shops from the initial get go. And so we've had to understand a lot about the user journey, how they're interacting with this technical information and looking it up today. But then the value of building the SaaS product is we believe that with this initial set of features, we can easily turn that on for other garages that want to sign up moving forward. Okay, so the idea here is yes while you're building it, there's a lot of process design, but you're trying to create some sort of abstracted common process that everyone can follow. And so then it just becomes a SaaS product that any that any shop can sign up for, you don't have to do additional process design for them. Correct. Yeah. Again, we've been into many shops across the country. We've seen similar processes that take place technicians are walking to a vehicle looking up in these manuals. Many of them use some of the same pieces of data information today, legacy data. So that's who we're looking to replace in some cases. There is an opportunity for us to be a part of the greater ecosystem. So there are CRM systems, if you will, that are more integrated and to managing those vehicles and shops across the board. There is an opportunity for deeper implementation there as we go forward. Understood. So when you think about this application, then in terms of the onboarding, just to be clear, so people will just be able to sign up. They'll be able to use it in any given time. And then I'm wondering what they need beyond the software. So for example, it's obviously going to be voice interactive. So where's the microphone? Sure. Yeah, we've had actually some very interesting hardware tests. Channel, I'll let you share a little bit about the tests and the modality because yeah, we just got back from a garage in Michigan and it was a really interesting test. Yeah, so it's actually we look at a bunch of options. But we are starting with a pretty common form factor, which is a tablet, right? So previously, the tablets were especially non Apple or Android tablets. They were considered a kind of lower end, but right now, a lot of tablets come up with micro rays, right? At least two microarrays that can actually handle the environment noise pretty well. And we'll be giving the end users some options. So some optional accessories if they want if they really want the mic to be closer to their mouth instead of in a bay or in a card. Just right next to the bay. But we are also trying to come up with some newer some newer hardware that's on the road map. If it has to be far field, then there's going to be the smart display. So really the modality we're thinking about is that we need the voice interactions. We also need a screen because some, in some cases, right, there's the voice feedback, which is great for the end users to consume, but also sometimes there is the diagram, sometimes there's a process, sometimes there's a note, which is very long to read out. It takes to a TTS to read it in a minute. This doesn't make sense. But yeah, so basically the tablet, the tablet is going to work because we've seen a lot in the garages that we visited. And sometimes people carry them and just move around sometimes there are blocked on the card. They are just a great form factor, and they are existing already. Some accessories, right? And on the road map, some smart displays, some smart speakers..

"Completely. So Kim, you've been spearheading, I think, the, what I would call shift from rain from being more of a services business agency business to a product business. And I think it would be really helpful for the listeners to understand a little bit more about what it is you're building and the custom assistance base. Sure, sure. And just to clarify there. So the agency business and our product business are both in existence now and we've had a lot of great traction on the agency side. Building custom assistance as well as our own in-house custom assistant. My primary focus is over the custom assistant that ran Malone and it's still in stealth mode so I'll share as much as I can today. To clarify there, though. So that is targeted to technicians in the automotive space. And we're really excited about bringing this technology to those technicians as a workforce in general. We've observed them looking up quite a bit of information on the job site and needing to access that information better than they ever have before and faster. So that is where our product focuses right now. Right, I think the term that you came up with is the deskless worker was your focus. That's correct. And so the first implementation of that from an application standpoint in the automotive sector. Yes. Yep. Yes. And we've been building for the desk list workforce on the agency side of our business as well. So there are certain climate segments that we're working with across construction and other deskless industries as well. And then also build our own product for the automotive industry. Right. You know, I heard something yesterday in a conversation I had, which I thought was interesting. I don't have any verification, but I'll just ask you, the suggestion was that there's actually a higher level of dyslexia among many technicians who are essentially deskless workers. And they found that in a lot of the reports that they were writing. And so that was like an unexpected benefit of moving to a voice interactive solution for them because it was recording for them and obviously it was going to record them sort of proper grammar and spelling. Yeah, that's really interesting. I haven't heard that particular insight, but in general, we believe there's lots of benefits to bringing this technology to the garage. And if we think about what the product is doing, it's really two things at once, and I'm sure Chen can speak to this as well. But we are thinking about how we better normalize legacy data. There's a lot of information that these technicians and, frankly, the deskless workforce in general need to access. To get their job done and they need to sift through manuals and training guides, materials, oftentimes to get a single answer or value to continue on doing their work. So we have to build the data platform. And that's where we think we're adding a tremendous amount of value compared to current products that are out there today to help those technicians when they're looking up information. They're still thumbing through lots and lots of information. At the same time, when you add the voice layer on top of that, obviously we know that there is efficiency there. It's allowing those workers to be hands free to keep moving on the job at the same time. So I think in that case, we believe there's benefits to the speed in which they get information and then how they'll take that information and maintain that efficiency throughout the job..

"Which is, I think, what you were talking about. What are your thoughts on that? From a technical standpoint, are you thinking a 100% connectionist? Some hybrid model, I'm pretty sure you're not using symbolic entirely right now. Maybe not at all. But what are your thoughts on how those are coming together and whether there's whether there is a good option to do some sort of hybrid approach? Yeah, that's a great question. So from a technical perspective, I think. The short answer is we should all try to move towards machine learning and deep learning based as much as possible, right? I mean, it's been cheaper than ever to do it. Cheaper, not only not only by the training cost of the hardware, of course. But also the development time. For products, it's always true that you don't want to spend multiple years on one thing, just bring your stuff to the market. Because you really want to initiate the first few versions. And you want to iterate on that. It's cheaper. And it's quicker. So previously, only larger companies would be able to afford that. I mean, just looking at the price of the hardware of the GPUs. But still, GPUs, price are still very high today. But there are a lot of platforms that can enable enabled smaller developers, smaller organizations. To train, to train on your custom training set. That's for one. And the other is rule based, they used to be a quick way, especially for code start. Because there's always been a code star problem, right? You don't have any data, right? Then people will argue, I'm going to just put a rule base there. And we gradually move towards machine learning based. But then, you know, what if there is a lot of resistance within your organization within your engineering organization? Because you know, it's a lot of change, right? It's architectural change. So people would probably be reluctant to do that. Once we've had a lot of things in place already in terms of rule based engine, but now you can start off. You can start off right on ML based. And there are a lot of pre trained models you can leverage. There is, for example, part. Where there's a grade is a great achievement. It's a great breakthrough. So even without any fine tuning, you can just use it off the shelf. And it comes up with a lot of languages too. So previously, the one resistance, yeah, we have great tools for English for American anguish. But are the system has to be multi link wall, then the argument becomes we can build a rule based on gen. For some other languages. A lot of reason, a lot of good reasons that we have the right tools, we have the right technologies ready for a year to start to start with ML based approaches. When you have to do some rule based, I mean, yeah, if there's a good reason from a feature perspective, you can do that. But again, I would try to avoid it. You will be seeing a lot of corner cases.

It was the global chairman director for indirect procurement and one of the first negotiation or was involved was the renewal of an outsource indian in a bit above ground. This outsourcing deal was done a few years before by the a kid without procurement involvement from the main. They had some problems to handle says. Okay let's give it to a supplier and they will deal with it so you know we didn't have good processes in the supplier. Was doing everything. So in this kind of pressure. The supply lou that david we will say we will still continue to buy from them. Because we didn't have a decapa ability to do it internally. We didn't have the specs even to extend. I still try to procurement job by the benchmarking understand what was happening etcetera etcetera and came to the conclusion that the rates that we had was substantially higher than a competitive market. So i went in and ask the supplier for a sharp reduction of the price. I guess what they do. Is this new key. In town just arrived the the good relations with the they said you know we don't believe it so they defended price and the only give me some very minor type of degrees but then okay. They went for short term benefits as opposed to long-term kind of perspective. So what we did is. We gave them a two years. Contract are fairly short contract. In meantime we develop the specs the process etcetera and two years later we ended up getting substantial part of the business away to somebody else. I love a love that and you know. Do your point. I one of the things that i always tell. People is if you're if you're dealing with a professional and they don't have any stories of failures than your professional isn't very good. You have to have some laws if you don't have losses you're not trying and that's the thing though because that's what makes you better you. I'm sure at the time it didn't feel great but now you can look back on that as a fond memory book because you can say. Look at the lessons. That i've learned and the negotiation successes that i've had as a result of that failure to well. This has been great. I really appreciate you coming on the show and sharing your wisdom.

"Conti Show on 7 20, WGN. Welcome and everyone I love to hear that 80 degrees Steve Ruxton. When you said 80 degrees I wanted you to say it over and over and over again just so I could sink in there. It's a nice, beautiful summer ish day and we've got a great show. We're going to be talking today is that 87th anniversary of the body and Clyde shootout that happened down in Louise. Louisiana, Bonnie and Clyde. Two of the, uh, kind of fun criminals if you will, back in the day, and a couple movies were made about, uh, the issue and we're gonna be talking to the owner of the Ambush Museum down in Gibson, Louisiana. Ah, place. It's a little town. I've been there, been there for the festivities, and we're going to talk about the bonding, Clyde crimes and some little known facts. About that situation, and then we're going to talk about $43 million verdict that came down this week when the court's open in Cook County. The first civil jury trial happened and it was a $43 million verdict and with us to talk about that is Tom Paris, one of the city's best attorney of personal injury. Attorneys were going to talk a little bit about malpractice. How to avoid malpractice. Here's a lawyer who's sue doctors and hospitals. And just wanting to understand, Like, what are the things that we should do to avoid malpractice, among other things, talking about car accidents in the more mundane types of injuries and accidents that happen and how these cases are handled. But first, we're talking about a new story that happened this week. I'm sure you all heard it. Mayor Lori Lightfoot made news this week when she announced that going forward, she's going to grant one on one interviews on Lee with media people of color. There was a lot of criticism. But does she have a point? Our women, people of color underrepresented in the press. Why does this happen? How does this affect the news coverage? And was Lori Lightfoot's method off helping the situation really the right way to do it with us to step to discuss. This is one of my favorite journalist of all time. Darlene Hill. She worked at Fox 32. Here in Chicago for 23 years. She's a Peabody and Emmy Award winning journalist, and she's now anchoring the Evening news in Columbus, Ohio. But as she says, her heart will always be in Chicago. Hi, Darlene. How are you? Hey, Karen, How are you? Happy Sunday to you and your viewers. It's so nice to hear your voice. I miss you And I miss you here in Chicago. But the make you two There's no city like Chicago. Let me just say that I know that And I appreciate a little bit more since I'm a waste. I mean, you know smaller towns. I like Columbus is a nice town. I think love ST Louis and Grand Rapids and Memphis and all those towns air Nice recount business. Great now, Yeah, but like we dont Oh, there's something else s o that. Let's let's talk about this, uh, this this new story, So, darling, you're an African American woman. You've been in the field from for a quarter of a century. And what? When you first heard this story? What did you What was your initial reaction? You know what Sitting in Columbus? I got to tell you. We ran the story in Columbus, Ohio, because it was you know, the mayor of the third largest city in the in the nation making a decision like this. I think most journalists of color Applaud her decision. Whether you like it or review love it. It was a decision. I think that needed to be made in the time where we are on Lee because as the nation deals with this reckoning of the racial issues going on I think she had to make the call like that. She just said I'm a black woman. I'm a lesbian. If I'm not all about diversity, what am I doing? And let's be clear what she said, because I I saw all kinds of reiterations and it orations of what she said. And it was like I'm not gonna talkto anyone who's not a person of color. That's not what she said She from what I understand, and darling, if you have a different understanding, let me know, but As far as press conferences. Obviously, she's going to give press conferences to everybody, no matter who's there. But when you know it's her option to grant one on one interviews with various journalists, and that's the option of any politician or anyone in the news. And she's saying on Lee as to those one on one interviews. Will she say no, We're only going to give them to people of color. Is that your understanding? And that's my understanding. She's only doing it now. Person are journalists of color for these one on one interviews for her second anniversary, where we we sit around and talk about the good or the bad. I'm on Lee going to do this for now, on this interview on this particular topic with Journalists of color. And that's all she said. Not now. I mean not going forward. Not all all the time. No, just on this topic, and I think that that was brave of her. It was brave of her and And it's just interesting. The reaction that that it's happening and you know, I have to say if if it were Rahm Emanuel, who said Listen and Rob Emanuel is no conservative. He very liberal, and he if he had come out, said You know what? I noticed that when I'm looking around here, even though I'm a white male, I look around and I don't see people of color. I don't see women. I don't see Asians. You know what I'm going to just do this? I don't know that it would have gotten such Aziz Big a deal as when she did it all go here..

Serverless Properties with Johann Schleier-Smith
"Welcome to the show. Jeff super excited to be here. You've been looking at service computing from the vantage point of berkeley and talked to a number of other people from berkeley about service. Talk to john. Stoica and vikram. She conti from your point of view. Why has berkeley taken an interest. In service computing. Berkeley has a long history of prominent Research in computer science and systems in particular. Lots of really cutting edge work was done here and think the faculty are always looking for that next thing. That's coming down the pipe and can we be on top of an and ideally ahead of that trend and in the context of service computing. This is something that we latched onto people at berkeley. I wasn't actually the first one myself. Yaas okay eric. Jonas published pirate work back in so john's dog. Eric jonas. They published a pirate work back in two thousand sixteen. Two thousand seventeen were were really saying. Wow service allows us this access to supercomputer scale resources for basically anyone. So i think that people kind of latched onto. Hey there's something new. There's something really different that's happening in the cloud and we should really pay attention that we should try to understand what the implications of this new technology are what to service make easier. What does it make more complicated. What are the trade offs in using services from our perspective services computing is really about making life easier for programmers. That's the big change. Now it makes a number of changes so it certainly makes life easier for operators as well in some cases even completely removing the need for certain system administration responsibilities so everything that's complicated about servers and by that we mean things like setting them up making sure that they are patched for security Making sure that when they fail application is responding in the correct way so that continue to deliver service all of these concerns. Go away the handed to the cloud provider. Cloud provider has ways of automating them away. So that for them. It's also much much easier to manage. So they can imagine for many many companies at scale so the program are also has this ability to basically write code and their favorite programming language upload loaded to the cloud and then it just runs not have to worry about it anymore. And that is i. Think in many ways fulfilling kind of this promise of the cloud to give you that effortless access to scale so the downside of that is that you do have to change how you program a little bit so i think that lambda was successful because it allowed you to bring along your existing libraries logic bring along your existing languages so there's a fair degree of continuity on the other hand if you really are going to make programming simpler you're going to be writing simple programs and that means that you're probably going to be rewriting your programs at the same time so you do have to learn to think a little bit

What will the Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation mean for the 2020 election?
"We can talk about murder boards. Because Amy Cockney Barrett has just being doing them. I've never heard of murder balls before One of our guests was saying it's the American phrase for a Nintendo practice interrogations where you get people to take you through what you're about to go through. If you're about to go through, for example, the confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court because she is President Trump's pick to fill the vacancy of Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Her appointment would cement Conservative majority on the Supreme Court with enormous political implications. Eyes like nothing seen in U. S history, so close to a presidential election, his Barbara Plata Amy Cockney. Barrett is a dream nominee for those on the right, but it is my honor to nominate One of our nation's most brilliant And gifted legal minds to the Supreme Court Appeals court judge is a formidable intellect, a devout Catholic, a supermom with seven Children. While I am a judge, I'm better known back home as a room, parent, carpool driver and staunchly conservative, although at this White House ceremony, she distanced herself from partisan divides. If confirmed, I would not assume that role for the sake of those in my own circle. And certainly not for my own sake. I would assume this role to serve you. It's just weeks from the election, but nothing is getting in the way of the rush to confirm the new Supreme Court Justice, the third nominated by President Trump, the stakes are just too high. Processes nomination consistent with rules. And I look forward to coming days will be a lot of fun. It will be fun for them. See Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and other Republicans because it's an unprecedented chance to secure a conservative majority on the court for a generation. And also to recharge the election campaign by energizing the base help Amy Barrett and President Trump Fight back stand up for conservative values Republicans But also Democrats have adjusted their campaign adverts to address the unexpected vacancy on the Supreme Court is rushing through a Supreme Court nominee to do just that step away care from millions of Americans and pre existing condition protections for Democrats. This is a nightmare, a job for life. A court that sets the nation's social and cultural direction on issues like gay rights, gun control, abortion and Obama care. Judge Barrett is very fair, but fans of Judge Conti Barrett are convinced she's the best candidate for the job. She's a popular law professor and Laura Walk was one of her students. Judge Barrett is not swayed by any type of personal preferences or things like that again. Witness that in the classroom no one ever knew what Judge Barrett thought about an issue. She never let her students he never Pressured them to think a certain way. Everything was hyper focused on the law. Democrats don't have the votes to stop this, and they're furious about the politics. Today I am nominating Chief Judge Merrick Brian Garland to join the Supreme Court. In 2016, Republicans blocked President Obama from filling a Supreme Court seat because it was an election year. But now that they're in power, they've changed their tune. And the conservative media is almost giddy with excitement. This is going to have a massive impact on the American judiciary, thus gonna have a massive impact. On American culture and society. If Donald Trump secures the Supreme Court seat, even if he doesn't win the election, his presidency will be deemed a success by the ideological right and by evangelical Christians. That's why they voted for him, and it will be remembered as a turning point for the nation on some of the issues that matter the most to Americans.
