Security operations centers: a first principle idea.

"The idea of operations centers has been around seemingly forever friedrich limb in his a history of western technology suggests that the concept goes back as far as five thousand bc amazing anytime an organization grows big enough either in terms of function or one. Small team can't do everything. Leaders have built these centers to men's the workflow and status of the various groups into coordinate. If you fast forward to the early days of the technological revolution we started seeing organizations. That began looking like a modern day sark. But we're quite there yet. The classic example is how nasa managed space missions starting way back in nineteen fifty eight now for those. Who don't know me. I'ma space geek specifically. I love everything about the space race between the russians and the americans during the nineteen sixties in fact as a side note the washington post lillian cunningham produced a thirteen episode podcasts. About that very thing last year it is called moon rise and i highly recommended. But did you know that when neil armstrong and buzz aldrin landed on the moon in nineteen sixty nine that the russians had a remote controlled spacecraft up there at the same time. I didn't know that. Until i listen to the moon rise podcasts. The russians crashed into a moon mountain as armstrong and aldrin. We're flying back to the lunar module so maybe that is why the russians don't advertise that much. But i digress. One of my favorite space movies is paolo. Thirteen directed by ron howard. And one of the things. I love about that. Movie is how it depicts the energy and sense of purpose of an operation center. Here's the actor. Ed harris in a virtuoso performance playing gene kranz the real life nasa flight director delegating tasks his crew of operational teams on what they need to do to get apollo thirteen at home. And the meantime whenever frozen command module to power it up another but the re entry batteries. We've been tried before we've never even stimulated it before gene. We're going to have to figure it out. i want people in our simulators working reentry scenarios. I want you guys to find. Every engineer designed ever switch every circuit transistor and every lightbulb. It's up there then. I want you to talk to the guy. Knee assembly line actually built the thing. Find out how to squeeze every aunt at both of these goddamn machines. I want this mark all the way back to earth with time to spare never lost an american in space where surest not gonna lose one on my watch. Failure is not an option. If that doesn't bring chills down your spine you might be dead. I'm just saying when telephone network started appearing in the early nineteen twenty s phone companies like eighteen bill traffic control bureaus to handle long distance traffic issues by the early nineteen sixties. At and t. Handled most telephone switching through mechanical devices and build a network control center or noc to manage it. At and t. Historians consider this to be the first knock ever built by nineteen seventy seven bell systems had built the first national knock in bedminster new jersey which looked a lot like modern knocks. Today there wasn't much security yet but if there was any knock operators were doing it in the us intelligence community the nineteen sixties were fraud with international incidents like the cuban missile crisis of nineteen sixty to the arab israeli six day war in nineteen sixty seven the us pueblo capture and nineteen sixty eight the prague spring crisis and czechoslovakia also nineteen sixty eight in the one. Twenty-one shootdown crisis in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the. nsa decided that. They needed an operation center to manage their efforts. Across a wide swatch of international activity. Based on the freedom of information request. The nsa released a document in two thousand seven that described the formation of the first national cigarette operations center or insomniac in one thousand nine hundred seventy three and according to charles berlin. I hit him on lincoln and the answer me. He's a former in sock director. The innocent kept adding more responsibility to over time. He said that it's secret. Sauce was when the nsa decided to pair offense or cigarette defense or comsec in the same place. Eventually they replaced the word singing in the title with security. In other words it became the national security operations center. Berlin said that when cyber came along years later the toll of michigan came too big to keep in the in sock in the. Nsa created the national cyber threat operations center or the in talk to deal with it. But with the addition of the concept mission these operations centers started to lean toward defensive security on the government side and in the aftermath of the morris worm which was the first destructive internet worm

That Time I Broke The Law

"I'm answering my question. I right yeah. Yeah so this. This happened years ago. And i don't know that i even really understand what happened. But i tell this story to my audience in various places on instagram and the podcast. And it's the story of where. I made a mistake on multiple levels. I mean i made a mistake in decision making stake in potentially violating regulations. Which maybe you can help. Straighten me out on a real quickly. The the story was. I was doing a charity flight for my daughter's school in which i had rented a very fancy airplane and a couple that was wealthier than i had been money for me to go. Take them on a sunset flight and run over the san francisco bay and doing my thing and i do it once a year so i have the route pretty much down. I know exactly where i can fly. It'll be one hour on the hobbs. It's not gonna break my wallet and they're all they're going to be very happy and here. I was coming around the east side of the bay. I had to transition the oakland class. Charlie so i arranged flight following with nor cal approach and i had flown through the charlie so i was no longer in the charlie. I'm flying echo. Airspace pointed essentially southeast. And i want. I wanted to turn to the west because that was where i needed to go to get back to the home base and have this be one hour and air traffic control. Says you know turn left which is not the way i want to turn left heading zero zero so i understand why they have arrival traffic. I can see a lot of that traffic. I'm situationally aware. I'm listening to the radio. But i'm headed now in the entirely. You know the opposite i to be going and they're taking me pretty far out and i fly this way just keeping my mouth shut for a little while until finally i say you know what i'm just going to terminate radar service because i know what they need. I'm gonna get low. I'm going to go back in your class. Echo airspace go straight to the delta tower. And i said to him you know. We'd like to request the termination of radar service to which they said unable and i've never heard that before ever and we can come back to it but one question is are they. Are they legally able to say that. I can't terminate radar service which is an optional service. And so i. I fly that way a bit longer. And then here's a probably the first real mistake. I made this hazardous attitude in these sort of flares. Up this anti authority attitude and against what i would say his better judgment. I just said you know what. I'm going to turn off the radio squad. Twelve hundred and go straight to the tower. So i switched the frequency. I squad one zero zero and maneuver at a low altitude back to the class delta tower and on landing i leave the runway taxi clear the runway and the tower says we have a possible pilot. I have a phone number. Advise ready to copy you get that sinking feeling in your stomach at that point right. Yeah i think the sinking feeling started before that. But yeah this was definitely Because flying back. I realized this is not the way to behave and not the way to fly anyway. I i pull off the runway. I write down the phone number and And i tell my students this as story so for anybody is listening. Hasn't heard that story. I use an example of how those hazardous rivoli live inside of us. It's not like you meet somebody who there's the macho guy. Ooh there's the anti-authority guy You know under the right pressure in the right circumstance we all should be aware of these possible hazardous attitudes that have known to show themselves as patterns in the industry and things that can really affect all of us including me. I'm not immune. And i'm thinking this through as i tie up the airplane in the couple goes home and i'm cool myself down. I remember the new compliance philosophy which is another thing that i teach my students that the faa has a has a compliance philosophy. That's no longer a subjective thing. It's written down its policy. They are going to work to offer remediation before they slap a penalty on you in theory. So after i calm down i call the air. Traffic control centre. I dialed the number the The trae kind facility there. And i asked for the control. Hey this is the pilot of whatever my end number was. I'd like to talk to the controller. I got advised of a possible deviation and they said oh yeah oh hang on and this guy you know gets on the phone and just start reading the riot act you know really really cutting loose. Do you know how dangerous that was. And the planes and you could have been all these things. I could've done and i just quietly listened to him and let him get all that stuff out and at the end of it all. I just said you know what you're right. And i'm wrong and i thank you for that remediation and i promise this will never happen again in you know i apologize essentially no. I didn't talk them. I didn't tell them how many years i've been flying in the area and tell them that. I thought i knew what he wanted or any of that. I just took it on the chin and apologized and that diffused the situation and he said okay. You know that's okay. And he hung up the phone. And i suppose you never escalated. Because i never heard from a physio or anything like that and you know i guess my i guess my real question is can he do that. Can you tell me that. I can't terminate radar service. Yeah and there. There's a lot to unpack there. So i'm i'm going to help you peel the onion on it First of all that was a great synopsis of what happened to avoid burying the lead. Yes the short answer is yes. Class echo is controlled. Airspace and a t. Ken give you you know headings instructions and they can tell you what to do and what not to do and of course as pilot in command. You're the ultimate responsible responsible party for the flight and needed to to meet the needs of emergency. You can deviate from any regulation in part ninety one including for atc instruction but again the short answer is yes even though you didn't have to be talking to him at all When you chose to enter the system and beyond flight following in controlled airspace and class echo in this case you are subject to following those instructions and so he was within his rights to do it. He did just as as the bait. That's the starting point the baseline for this analysis all right. I've never was the first time i've ever ever heard a controller. Say that but it's good to know that it wasn't no he wasn't you know he wasn't outside of his lane. I will say it is rare. It is not well known. I mean you've been instructing for a long time. And i think there's a lot of pilots who are very experienced who might not know this in a in a way. It's a bit counter intuitive. Because you could have said. I'm just going to squawk twelve hundred this whole time and be you know cruise fat dumb and happy and get back before that you know hob sticks to the our But you know. And i'm i'm a big proponent of flight following flying afar myself I'm i'm requesting flight following you know if atc you can offer at work load permitting But it can put you in that situation and you could unexpectedly get an atc. Instruction that you didn't you didn't know that they could or or would give you. Yeah it's interesting interesting and sorry. What one quick thing. I don't want to forget. There is actually a legal interpretation about this from. Faa's

What happened during the troubled Big Sur launch, and why

"Apple released mac. Os eleven big sur. On thursday. Anyway it tried to expecting the best macrumors ran a piece. Highlighting of the operating systems planned improvements including the aesthetic redesign. The ios inspired control center a notification center the changes to affari the updates messages and the list goes on. We could spend all day talking about those though. The bigger stories today is the people who spent all day trying to download and install the blessed update seeing that ran peace in the middle of the day. Thursday saying that the downloads for big sur. Were super slow and that people were encountering installation delays of hours or even days in opposed at one forty nine. Pm pacific seeing that said this seemed to be very slow with the update. Failing completely for some customers after saying had about seventeen hours remaining the big sur installation failed five or six times for one scene net reporter and now won't restart now. I pointed out the time on that because just ahead of yesterday's mac. Os ken live. I checked apple system status page. It said that. The mac os software update issue had started around ten am pacific and was resolved by one fifteen pm. That was apparently a bit optimistic at about three thirty pacific cult posted a piece under the headline apple thinks is frustrating delays in macos big sur downloads sometime later. The headline was amended with the words. Update maybe not because yeah not checking apple system status page overnight. Last night apple had updated. Its message saying users may not have been able to download muko software updates on mac computers. The timeframe listed ten am through five fifteen pm pacific. All's well that ends well yeah. I wish i can say for certain that it had in fact ended mac. Os ken listener. Eric sent me an e mail around seven pm. Pacific saying after a forty minute attempted download the update for his twenty eighteen macbook pro just decided to fail. Sad trombone says eric war and that's the one. Apparently the call went on to say thursday wasn't a banner day for several apple services and they were not kidding. Macrumors ran a piece at two in the afternoon. Saying apple is having trouble with a number of services at this time and along with problems that are preventing people from installing mac. Os big sur and slowing down third party apps apple card apple pay maps and message are experiencing issues third party apps. Yeah seem so yet. Another piece from macrumors told the long delays in launching apps or people being unable to open mac apps at all. The problem seems to have been tied to apple's developer. Id notary service as for. Apple's own services seems to have been seriously troublesome macrumors indicates that apple card and apple pay suffered a complete outage with users unable to complete apple pay transactions traffic info and navigation and rounding for maps were also unavailable that outage ran from noon pacific to one forty macrumors updated story at two thirty pacific saying that apple had resolved all of the outstanding issues. Is it possible that apple just trying to do too much in one day. In addition to the big sur release apple also released updates for some of its productivity and creativity applications one piece from apple insider says apple on thursday released updates for i work and garage band while another piece from the same site says apple updated final cut pro and logic pro. The first piece says the i work and garage band. Updates bring their design in line with the big sur aesthetic new icons and a refined design for pages numbers and keynote according to the report that plus the usual stabs and purves as for garage band. There seems to be quite a bit. That's new including customization of region colors and tracks eighteen hundred new apple loops over one hundred ninety new instrument patches and fifty vintage and modern drum kits all of that plus a bit of the big sur design language for everyone then there are tweaks for the computers coming soon. According to apple insider garage band has been tweaked to improve performance and efficiency on mac computers powered by apple silica for apple silicon that final cut pro and logic pro were updated as well and by the way. I'm not being lazy. I'm not saying the x at the end because apple's not lost. I suppose in the move from roman numeral ten to eleven

"New Jersey voters overwhelmingly approved a ballot initiative legalizing recreational marijuana. Mayor de Blasio said New York should be next across the river. We want to thank our neighbors and congratulate our neighbors in New Jersey. They did something really important and some thing New York State needs to do they legalize marijuana. This is something I believe in. That has to be done the right way in New York to be done in a way that's safe and that empowers Communities who often have suffered from the long, wrong kind of laws in the past, But here's an opportunity to do the right thing. A New Jersey voters will have to wait a little while after that initiative was approved, got writer of the advocacy group New Jersey Canna Business Association, says the legal framework for recreational marijuana could come before Thanksgiving. But then the work of regulations will begin marketing strategies, your packaging strategies. Security systems. Things like that. It all needs to be developed, and it needs to be approved in the nearest public hearings for that. Public health experts like Dr Diane Kal El O of the New Jersey Poison Control Center, says they will include regulating potency, making sure packaging is childproof and doesn't look like candy but also setting up a system for data collection to monitor the effects like on traffic accidents or pregnant women and Children.

Boston Uprising Beat Houston Outlaws in Overwatch Playoffs

"We gotta start at the top but Boston uprising defeating the Houston outlaws it three to one. I, know shrug in chat as has shown up specifically to hear this one's Oh. People will will tune in for this one I mean like I was very vocal about it after the match on twitter. It's it's very easy to deduce what went wrong in this game and that is a woefully under coached and unprepared team tried to do something that's never been viable in the history of overwatch. And they tried to do it at a time when it makes little sense as humanly possible for their strategy to be effective and This was purely a coaching failure to me. There's just no two ways around it. They lost to a team that had previously won two games on the season that we discussed this potentially being actually worsen over watch the the Owen Forty Shanghai dragons from season. One we on ironically had that conversation They tried to run Faira in a hit scan Meta that that's it. They treated it like it was a lock and load must pick day Spanish. How Long Months Months. Training a GPS player to become their main tank and then when they needed their main tank to play a GPS hero like road hog, they swap in different DPS player to. Free up their main tank player to fly around in the sky and play Farah. Now if you'RE WANNA run fair I have no issue with it being hydration right that the man was previously transcendent on the hero like he did things that nobody else was really able to do on a was I'm talking back, season one. Better. Find is a history lesson not not a a me trying like compare people recent times. So I have no issues with with hydration being that guy but. The road hog was perfect for him. What we're seeing throughout this tournament is that Kinda Best Road for the teams that are using it Are the maintain players that adapt into it There's a certain of positioning in coordination in a style to this version of roadlog. If you're running a measure main tank, you still kinda needed to operate as your main tank in needs the control space and hold corners and just absolutely play it much like you would a reinhard in a way. You know you're playing on your corners and you're using your natural cover because you don't have a shield still kind of in the same position and now we have. blase coming in and playing it and I thought he did a pretty good job. I mean people were talking about how great fusions looked kind of thought blase out performed fusions. But he did it in a different style that was kinda worse for the team or he was much more flaky. He was much more Ganji player. South road hogs. So our doom players, the accurate one, right that's what what ways and it just didn't quite have the same level of impact. But I think he kind of outperformed fusions thought he got more value out of the picked infusions dead. This fight was lost in the hero select screen. Apparently, their first scrim because in a game where. And Ash are two of the best DPS selections they decided. We can run fair with a one hundred percent pick right and it's just gonNa work and that's like I said something that's never once been true in the history of overwatch like even when widowmaker and macree and ash suck. It doesn't work because you have diva you have. Anna were both also mainstays in the lineup for the Boston uprising. They never have of a counter area you're doing it. Why would we stop doing? It was just asinine. Eh. Just absolutely ridiculous. There was no backup strategy they going into the last map they played it on everything Lee Jang Tower control, center like literally everywhere. It doesn't matter how bad at historically is it doesn't matter anything. They're just like this was right right it's. Been True. There's no indication indication that this should be true. Every theory craft and you could possibly do tells you fair as this is the same chief, isn't the pack for her next patches live. Server. Patch, I could see that being a viable strategy because they really are doing allowed to the hit scans and they're adding damage fall off to widowmaker and all these things right? Are they doing those things dream? Why are they doing those things harsha because they hit scan heroes are overpowered. So you just literally three headed your way into being beaten by the worst team in the. League You all should be fired literally everybody in the coaching staff should just go and and you've got to rebuild again because they just literally. The worst coaching job I can remember seeing in overwatch leaving I can't even sit there and blame the Oh and forty Shanghai. Dragons. Entirely on their coaching staff a little but good portion of it was just a roster wasn't capable at Sarah there. This roster was absolutely capable of the task at hand. The fact that everybody loves the PICK ON THE HOUSTON outlaws and everybody nobody wants to give him credit nobody picks him in any pickles ever ninety five percent of brackets were busted by this game.

CTA supervisor says she was arrested by Chicago police after trying to file complaint against officer

"A ten year veteran CT a supervisor has filed a federal lawsuit that claim Chicago police violated her first amendment rights and falsely arrested her while she was performing her CTA duties back in February Matisse Elise as a crime had been committed on a CTA platform at the Jackson Van Buren red line stop downtown and that that's when she had an encounter with the C.

"Wane. We hope it stays that way So it's hard to put an exact time on wind will have enough patience in the trial to analyze the data. All right well dot tracy. I appreciate your time. Thank you very much and I wanted to straight to To Dr Sanjay Gupta. So Sanjay what do you make of this new study obviously You know they're putting it through a formal trial. That's what we need to be doing is putting these things through trials. I mean this is an interesting hypothesis. That has some biological sort of rationale and that this this medication interestingly could could help block one of the receptors By which this virus enters the body. It's sounds like but it's interesting. We talk a lot about these these potential therapeutics and you know understandably given that we're in the middle of a pandemic but I have to say that we would never present this on your program at the stage because it's just so early we just don't there's nothing to really know here except an observation out of China. That people who were taking this medication seemed fair. Better than people who are taking. Another sort of heartburn medication You know we'll see. There's a lot of trials going on right now. I'm a little surprised that we don't have more definitive results. On some of the trials given that some of them started in December. We keep pushing on that but hopefully we'll hear about some some more definitive prospective randomized results in and. That's that's the question I have for you. We know there are so many things being tried and look at some point. You know and I know there are points you know people are very ill. They're trying everything they can. So it's not scientific because you're trying three or four or five you know you're just doing whatever you can do so you're not able to tell if anything works or nothing works or but to your point. There are a lot of things now being studied. Are you surprised that we have not yet heard about something? Being you know really effective because everything that there's been an indication of that then we seem to get study after study indicating that perhaps that it's not really the case Hydroxy Clark when being an example. Yeah I'm surprised by that and I know that the for example Hydroxy Clark when there were lots of doses given to the state of New York. Clinical trial was going on in five hospitals over there. governor Cuomo. We we asked him about this at the town hall of this past week and he said that you know basically based on the hundreds of patients that they had seen so far it did not seem to have a benefit but they're still waiting for the FDA to look at this data and have it analyzed independently. So there's lots of steps in. There should be good independent analysis of this for sure but I am surprised that REMM desert is another one that we've been hearing a lot about and they antiviral. The World Health Organization posted some information on their website last week and then immediately took it down. Gilead. The company that makes the drug said That was premature to have started to release any of these results. The study is still underpowered. It's amazing you got. Three million people are so around. The world who've have confirmed infections The fact that you have an underpowered. Study on one of the most Talked about medications is surprising because it seems like a lot of people would want to be in these trials. I'm surprised we don't have data. I'm surprised that we don't have sounds like don't have enough people in some of these trials yet. We need to get this information because that that could be a significant development in terms of how we proceed all the other all the other issues that we talk about could be affected by it by an effective medication. Obviously all right Sanjay. Thank you very much. Thank and next. Tyson foods warning that the food supply chain is quote breaking plants closing to stop spread of Corona virus. So should Americans be concerned plus the president refusing to take a back seat to his medical experts despite growing pressure from AIDS and ally. So what happened to the promise? New Look and focus of the briefs tonight. The food supply chain is breaking. That's it. It's a warning from the chairman of Tyson Foods. One of the world's largest Producers after it and other companies have had to shut down numerous plants because of krona virus outbreaks Among workers also warning from the company quote as pork beef and chicken plants are being forced to close even for short periods of time. Millions of pounds of meat will disappear from the supply chain out front. Now the governor of Arkansas as Hutchinson and governor. I appreciate your time Look at Tyson. Foods is obviously based in your state and you You know more about this in probably any other governor in this country when you hear millions of pounds of meat disappearing from the supply chain. How concerned are you? Well first of all. It's good to be with you Erin. And the fact that the chairman of Tyson's food felt necessary to communicate that to America indicates that they are critical industry and that as plants a different parts of the country have had breakouts of covert nineteen that It is a concern if you have to shut down a plant even for a bit. We'VE BEEN FORTUNATE IN ARKANSAS. That we have over sixty processing plants and They're all operational. They've worked hard to make sure that Safety is Paramount in those plants and the most important ingredient is to give the employs confidence that they will be healthy going into that plant and they don't risk Having an adverse contagion there in the processing plant and so they're taking the necessary steps but illustrates that We have to be prepared in the event. There's a positive case that we've sanitized we clean and we get back to processing because our country cannot do without this supply of food and it starts poultry beef pork. All of that is critical to supply chain. And look you know you talk about you. Haven't had to have. Tyson closed plants in your state. They of course have closed plants and other parts of the country Iowa Indiana Nearly two hundred cases linked to Just that one plant in Iowa which was closed in Waterloo today The chief medical officer in Indiana said Nine hundred sixty three cases in the state a majority of which he says are related to an outbreak EPA Tyson plant. So what does that concern you that this is happening in other places and it is linked to these plants where of course the food processing processes people are very close together but it does indicate some pretty serious breakdowns and in whether it be P P or how it's being managed at the plant level. Well it does concern you of course and it concerns the plant operators and that's why they're investing so much in safety precautions. We have been fortunate. Arkansas we have We've had a breakout in one of our prison facilities in so we can see how that virus Infiltrates and expand so rapidly. You don't want that same thing in close environment of a processing plant. The key thing is once you get a positive case that you go in there do your contract contact tracing very quickly so that you can stop the spread and have that capacity. That's what we're building in Arkansas. Hopefully that will be sufficient But also we're really working to avoid that committee spread we've been somewhat successful here in this state and we WANNA keep Esain path so do the White House official today said the new testing guidelines. They want each state to have the ability to test two percent of their residents per month. We were just talking to one of the most prominent testing experts in the country and he was just pointing out That adds up to taking four years to test everybody in this country and he thinks it's woefully short of what is necessary. Are you comfortable reopening your state if you get anywhere close to that number? Two percent of residents tested per month. Will we set our criteria? And we're looking at it for May fourth. Of course we'd never shut down completely We close restaurants bars. Those type of Personal contact a businesses. But we've been open beyond that. We are looking at what we need to May. Fourth and whether we can reopen some of those contact businesses. We're going to be very careful about that in terms of testing We've had a testing surges last weekend. We're going to continue to build that Base of testing in our state. And so I'm comfortable with where we are. We obviously want to continue to build the testing capability but all of that revolves around the contact tracing so that we can find out where we have an outbreak and nip it and take control it and that takes That investment resources which we are doing. And we're comfortable with that right now. I appreciate your time. Thank you sir. Thank you good to be here all right and next president trump back in front of the cameras today after complaining on twitter that it was a waste of time. So why why come back out. Plus young and middle aged people with corona virus are dying of strokes. Why Dr Studying? That alarming trend is out front..

"So I'm very excited about that. And it's something quite new. But when I Jerry. Griffin who was one of the flight directors on all eleven? I got to know him. And he said, you know, if you're going to Johnson Space Center, there's somebody, you should meet, and that somebody is, Sandra tightly. So I didn't know who Sandra was or what she was working on. And I met her and I told her about this work that I was doing. And she said, oh my goodness. Can you please help with how helping us to make the mocha restoration is historically accurate as we possibly can? And I said, of course, I would that sounds like a dream and tell me tell me about your role in that. What have you been doing? Well, I helped to this again, related to the thirty track I was part of the team that made the recent film called Apollo eleven and that film used this restored thirty track audio a gentleman named Stephen Slater from the UK use this audio to add sound to the previously. Silence. Sixteen millimeter footage reshot in isn't mission control. So we have we'd be able to figure out who somebody was and a roughly when the silent footage was shot mission control, and we could say, hey, wait a minute. That's the flight dynamics officer. And it's about seven hours after launch, and because I had corrected exactly the speed of each of the tapes, and decoded, the time code from the Irish channel here is sort of a way, finding capability to go to give me the flight dynamics channel at this time, and he paints taking lip sync up the audio that was in that thirty track recording with the silent footage. And that, that bring, you know, the movie gophers were basically going, how come I've never seen any of this before. Well. And didn't exist before this. There was no before. That's right. So the so when I told Sandra about that, work, that on the sixteen millimeter film, that now had audio to it in the fact that all the sixteen millimeter footage from Apollo eleven had been rescan for the film, and we were able to then scrub through the sixteen mill film and determine what happened in the mission. What was on the desks, what was on the screens well, for people saying at every step of the mission to try to help, make sure that the mocha was exactly being restored to what it looked like not. You've posted that restored audio out in public website to or anybody can see it without having to come to Houston. Yes. Not quite yet not quite finished this up site, but it's, it's going to be launched in June. And it's essentially the same thing that I did for a policy seventeen a real time recreation of the mission. But it's the real time recreation of all. Apollo eleven and during the Apollo eleven anniversary, the general public will be able to go to this website, open it up and drop in on history and see what was going on in the mission right now. What photos were being taken by the crew where what stage the mission or they in? Are they walking on the surface, or they during the sleep period? It's all gonna be real time, and it's essentially this direct way to experience the mission. And part of that this time, what Apollo seventeen didn't have. I have all the Levin thousand hours of mission control audio now, synchronized to exact mission time that will you'll be able to open up a panel, and click on any position at mission control here with that person was both saying to the people in their support rooms.

"The room itself, you know, nine hundred sixty nine was different time. I'm imagining you said, ashtrays, in the in the in the viewing room imagining, ashtrays on the console paper, scattered all over are those all coming back to. Oh, that's awesome. I'm collecting the old black Scowcroft binders. I'm collecting those and those will have papers put in them, they're recreating maps that will be put on there. We're getting old coats jackets, that used to hang and the, the, the little coat racks, number of donated items that were making copies of for, you know, to pile on the on the desk. You know, because you look at the photos and videos of the room, and it's just a, it's just a big messy pile of papers for the most part. But interesting in interestingly enough, we know a lot of those papers are, so we're, we're getting those and putting them back and. Yeah. The ashtrays and, and actually were doing some vacuuming under the floor today. And they're like, there's, there's, there's a cigarette butts. And the whole cigarette pack, and, you know, these things that we can use to, to put in place. So it's, it's our contractors using this furnishings, use an EBay a lot. I mean they're being berry successful on EBay as far as cups, and lighters. And they even found the rocket coffee pot. That was new in the box. And so we have that now but so we're getting that's, that's great technology that we're able to utilize and getting all of these, you know, these things that are will be on the consoles. Because, you know, ten fifteen years ago if you were doing this restoration project, he would be a real hassle to try to come up with some of these items, and, and thank goodness for EBay now. And, and you know, things have changed. Yeah. Just easy access to to, you know historic Cup. You know, still in the box, boom there it is. Yeah. Internet is fantastic. You know, this is I just want to take this moment, actually, to thank you for coming on the podcast right now because it sounds like you're right in the middle of ton of work. And yet you have decided that it is worth an hour to spend here talking about it. But I really appreciate a everything you're doing for the for the restoration project, but be your time today. So that's, that's actually I think a perfect place to end. Thank you so much for coming on. Yeah. And describing this project in detail, I think in really captures just the amount of work and effort and research, especially that goes into capturing this moment of history, it's going to be spectacular when its open to the public, and we can't wait. I can't wait for. Are you to say thank, thank you? I'm going to be the first one. They're good. Near the end of Gary's talk with Sandra Tetlin, Adam Graves, they discussed how visitors will be able to go to the viewing room of the restored, Apollo mission control center and go back in time to see and hear what happened out on that main floor during the historic events of Apollo eleven. It's a real, nice immersive experience. They didn't talk much about where that audio came from or how it's been prepared to be part of this show, but I'm going to right now with Ben Feist. He's a web developer by day with his hands in a number of other online and media projects, including cleaning up the quality of the Apollo eleven mission, control center audio Ben how does a a web developer in Canada? Get involved processing audio from space missions from fifty years ago. That's a very good question that I asked myself very often. I think it's, it's really. Because I'm interested in the history of Apollo. And I spent a lot of time from about two thousand nine until now helping to bring the Apollo missions back to life through real time web experiences and I built a website called Apollo seventeen dot org, which replays that mission in real.

"And the Pfister staircase into that alcove that goes into the back of the viewing room. And then when you when you step into their you'll be stepping back into time and then the, the seating will have the best seating because you, you know, we're going to have the clocks working in the summer display screens. We'll be working. So sitting in those seats will give you the best view of everything happening. And when you walk in you'll hear the chatter from the flight controllers and the, the command module, and the astronauts, and you'll, you'll be hearing all that as we begin to count. Down. And then the when the show starts, you know, at some point like a dose in or whatever, or just an employee when the show starts, then we'll begin at the descent and landing, and then we'll we're going to land. And then, you know, you'll, you'll experience all that and and, and a very important part that we're continuing to fight even right now is that during that landing and landing on the moon, there was no video at all the only things apply controllers had to look out was what was on the screens on their screens on their consoles. And then what was being shown through the computer where the, the land command module, the Lander was? So that's a very important historical element that we're trying to show is that these men landed on the moon, just given this data even with the alarms going off. And all that, you know, they were landing that, so you're going to hear that, and you're going to see that. And then from that after they land will go to the first steps walk through the first steps, and then we're going to do where Nixon. Called the moon from the White House, and that's a lot. That's very lot of people don't even know that, that really happened, but he called them after planting the flag. And so they're standing there with the flag. And then we're covered when they're on the, the, the hornet coming back and one of the Colt. Tell the story about the upside down camera. That's a great story. So on the very right, most screen if you're sitting in the visitors viewing room, which is all also restored and restored seating, and yes, and ashtrays, in the front. And, and you know, you'll you'll be in history and there as well. So you'll look and see when the very first video appears in, in Michigan stroll after landing Neil Armstrong is coming down the ladder. And it, it turns out that, that, that video is upside down. So there's a little bit of communication here. A little bit of chatter as you're experiencing this to, to flip the, the, the, the, the, the view the vision. Right, right. The screen upside down, or right side of sorry. So yeah, it's very cool. I mean because you're watching it, and then the flight controllers go on your, your image is upside down. And so then they flip it right side up. We're gonna shut it the hat. And then then you begin to see it clears up a little bit because it goes from one satellite to another and then it clears up, and then you see him step on the moon. So it's, that's those little elements like that, that people may not remember may not have experienced you know, if they were young those are really cool elements because it shows, you know, we're really trying to focus on the flight controllers. And what they did as far as the missions, not just astronauts, which we always, you know, here and so those are really cool elements that will be able to, to show in the experience. So, so it's not only restoring all these elements and making look and feel like it did in the sixties now, you're adding this, this show really you get to sit down and experience is it an ever looping, sort of thing is that is that how it's going to be. Or is it? You sit down and press play. And live this moment through this moment. Right. You sit down and press play. I won't be going all the time it will be your. It'll be set to where if you go in with a group, you can get it to start, and then it goes through the whole thing till recovery, and then the mission accomplished, you know, where they celebrated in, in the motor. And, and then it will reset back to a time that, you know,.

"Were kind of first gathering and getting things going, and then also, you'll have to tell them your story. But so we selected them because they have expertise, they have actual Apollo era consoles from mocha one. This is the Kansas cosmos, fear that, okay? Kansas cost here. Okay. And so they are very familiar with it, and they know their familiar with the details in the design, and they have the expertise to restore those so they were chosen to restore all of the consoles, and so they've taken them up to Kansas to, to their shop and they've been working on them for over a year now. And so they're expected to come back, but tell you can tell me start. Head down the Right Math of, you know, how, how do we move from this research, and get more research and get the right people involved. You know, we, we had to put a team together. Not one person is big enough or smart enough to figure. This is monster out, so, you know, so yes, she had heard of the cosmos, fear, but I hadn't and I had some ideas of, of some of the experts that, that might be, you know, we might reach out to for this project. And but, you know, I got to thinking one day, I think I just woke up with this idea. Like, okay. I'm I I've seen the Apollo thirteen movie, and I know I've seen in that movie emission control room. So how did they build this? And so I went to the movie, and I looked through all the credits and I find the, the art design ended production designer and I, I contact I start looking on the internet. I'm like, okay how, how am I going to get in touch with us? Michael corn black guy. And so I look for, you know, a pound agent page, and, you know, that came up with nothing and I was like, okay, maybe he's on Facebook. I went on Facebook, and he was I found found the guy and I send them a Facebook message. And, and the next day he responded, and he's like this is great that you're doing this. And, you know, I'd be you know, I'd be happy to help if I can, but I can't, I can't believe that it's been twenty years since the Apollo thirteen movie, but this is amazing. And but he indicated that he had used the cosmos feared of to build some of those consoles. So I was like, all right, great. No. Now I can go on this out. So that was that was one part of the team, the for the consoles. And then, you know, we have this big amazing room full of full of other things that aren't console. So I just knew, you know, putting this team together that it was, it was important to us. People in Texas to get this work done local people that, you know, everyone has a story of you know, from Houston that involves Johnson Space Center. So I reached out to the historic societies in Dallas and Austin and San Antonio, and Houston and had conversations. With a lot of these folks, that have done, you know, the historic courthouses in Texas. And which was, you know, in a way with the materials, the carpets wallpapers, things like that things that I knew kind of similar just started vetting through those list of people. And finally found starting to Buick team here in Houston that, that, that has done a lot of that work. So, so we got with them, and they have a number of subcontractors, as well that, that kind of rounded out the rest of the team. Okay. Wow. All right. So that's, that's a ton of research, because I think I'm trying to get my mind around all of the different elements that need to come together. Just causes here, you said was the consoles then got all these other components. You've got the rooms, you've got the you're talking window ceilings floors carpets talking carpenters, and painters, and all sorts of things that have experienced doing historic preservation work. Yes. Even trickier in Texas, right? Yeah. You got all these different like requirements and things you want to do so, so when did this. Process start, you know, you're, you're, you're searching for all the right people to do it now. Now, you're in the middle of let's go and actually restored some of these elements wanted to start. Well, the actual work didn't even really start until what Tober of twenty eighteen. Oh, wow. Very recently. Oh, yeah. I mean because of the funding and because of all the politics involved, we took an eighteen month project. We'd estimated eighteen to twenty four months and we've were cramming it into that nine months, and we are really literally cramming. But, like Adams said it's been real interesting. We can tell you the story of the carpet in the wallpaper, which would probably in the ceiling tiles, probably the most interesting stories that we have, please. When we were doing research on the carpet, we, we didn't know it had already been recarpeted and reward paper. So we didn't have any records of what it was or, or any of that we could go back and we could look at some of the original designs but. You know it's difficult to tell what exactly it was. But we were looking under p tube station, and the PD stations are the ones that have the pipes under the floor, and they had not been moved when they recarpeted. And so the original carpet was under that while under the P tube station. So they were able to cut a piece out, and it was what's called woven carpet, which they don't do anymore, but they took it to the carpet people, not mohawk Shaw carpet was shot carpet, and they took their current tufted way that they do carpet and analyze colors and analyze the pattern and by adding an additional yarn into their current method of weaving of, of creating carpet, they were able to recreate the carpet, and they went through about fifteen to twenty different ways that they did it in order to get it with the pattern and the, the texture that we wanted. And so that was really cool to do that. And when you look at them it's, it's just remarkable. They've done until the same thing with the wallpaper. We're in there one day, and the finish is guy noticed that they had removed a far extinguisher off the wall and behind that far extinguisher was original wallpaper. So by going back to the original plans, they found the original manufacturer of wallpaper, they went back to that company, which had been purchased. They went back to the purchase company. They actually found the roller in their warehouse and they were able to use that roller. It had been retooled. So our current recreated wallpapers a little bit has a greater definition than, than what was on the walls, but it's just remarkable. And so they were able to recreate it after about fifteen twenty talk tries of getting the color and the pattern because it's a two colored method, and that wallpapers been recreated in the motor. So it's, it's really cool and the and the ceiling tall, same thing they found a piece of ceiling tile in one of the old phone booths in the lobby thirty. And so they were able to go back and get a piece of. Armstrong tile, but they had to hand stamp, the whole pattern on each of those tiles took four different stamps, for different ways, tan stem. So that's a level of detail that they're going to. I mean it will be remarkably. It looked just like it did in nineteen sixty nine and the places you're finding these elements are astounding. It's your you don't just go to the floor and look at the carpet and be like, all right. Let's was matched this. You're finding it in the weirdest place. It's just yeah. It's really a little bit of, you know, the handed Lord in it. Find these little details. But, but that really will make great because whereas before we were just going to use the same wallpaper and then recreate the carpet from the what the flight controllers were telling us, and so this now, we'd have no doubt. I mean it's, it's going to be just a recreation of the original so a lot of it seems like the restoration pro project really is getting everything with the original carpeting, you know, the this is what the carpeting was is what the wallpaper was. You know the. Council's are a little bit different Apollo fifteen era, but it's really getting all these different elements together to make sure that history is captured. But you also talked about another, another part, which was you want the screens to show Apollo eleven what, what they look like with Apollo eleven so not only are you talking about getting no materials, but you're talking about getting information now from Apollo eleven. So where did you go to find that? So that's Adams forte. It's been a difficult process was, you know, we're really trying to hone in on, on, on a few different events during descent, and landing on the moon during the day during recovery. You know, those sorts of things are, you know, the video and camera work that was done in the mocha was, was interested in the people that were in mission control, which ultimately, that's what we're trying to get through our project as well as is highlight the, the men, and that worked in this room. And so there's, there's so much that were missing from those time because there's not just a camera locked.

"With a lot of these folks, that have done, you know, the historic courthouses in Texas. And which was, you know, in a way with the materials, the carpets wallpapers, things like that things that I knew kind of similar just started vetting through those list of people. And finally found starting to Buick team here in Houston that, that, that has done a lot of that work. So, so we got with them, and they have a number of subcontractors, as well that, that kind of rounded out the rest of the team. Okay. Wow. All right. So that's, that's a ton of research, because I think I'm trying to get my mind around all of the different elements that need to come together. Just causes here, you said was the consoles then got all these other components. You've got the rooms, you've got the you're talking window ceilings floors carpets talking carpenters, and painters, and all sorts of things that have experienced doing historic preservation work. Yes. Even trickier in Texas, right? Yeah. You got all these different like requirements and things you want to do so, so when did this. Process start, you know, you're, you're, you're searching for all the right people to do it now. Now, you're in the middle of let's go and actually restored some of these elements wanted to start. Well, the actual work didn't even really start until what Tober of twenty eighteen. Oh, wow. Very recently. Oh, yeah. I mean because of the funding and because of all the politics involved, we took an eighteen month project. We'd estimated eighteen to twenty four months and we've were cramming it into that nine months, and we are really literally cramming. But, like Adams said it's been real interesting. We can tell you the story of the carpet in the wallpaper, which would probably in the ceiling tiles, probably the most interesting stories that we have, please. When we were doing research on the carpet, we, we didn't know it had already been recarpeted and reward paper. So we didn't have any records of what it was or, or any of that we could go back and we could look at some of the original designs but. You know it's difficult to tell what exactly it was. But we were looking under p tube station, and the PD stations are the ones that have the pipes under the floor, and they had not been moved when they recarpeted..

"And so they are very familiar with it, and they know their familiar with the details in the design, and they have the expertise to restore those so they were chosen to restore all of the consoles, and so they've taken them up to Kansas to, to their shop and they've been working on them for over a year now. And so they're expected to come back, but tell you can tell me start. Head down the Right Math of, you know, how, how do we move from this research, and get more research and get the right people involved. You know, we, we had to put a team together. Not one person is big enough or smart enough to figure. This is monster out, so, you know, so yes, she had heard of the cosmos, fear, but I hadn't and I had some ideas of, of some of the experts that, that might be, you know, we might reach out to for this project. And but, you know, I got to thinking one day, I think I just woke up with this idea. Like, okay. I'm I I've seen the Apollo thirteen movie, and I know I've seen in that movie emission control room. So how did they build this? And so I went to the movie, and I looked through all the credits and I find the, the art design ended production designer and I, I contact I start looking on the internet. I'm like, okay how, how am I going to get in touch with us? Michael corn black guy. And so I look for, you know, a pound agent page, and, you know, that came up with nothing and I was like, okay, maybe he's on Facebook. I went on Facebook, and he was I found found the guy and I send them a Facebook message. And, and the next day he responded, and he's like this is great that you're doing this. And, you know, I'd be you know, I'd be happy to help if I can, but I can't, I can't believe that it's been twenty years since the Apollo thirteen movie, but this is amazing. And but he indicated that he had used the cosmos feared of to build some of those consoles. So I was like, all right, great. No. Now I can go on this out. So that was that was one part of the team, the for the consoles. And then, you know, we have this big amazing room full of full of other things that aren't console. So I just knew, you know, putting this team together that it was, it was important to us. People in Texas to get this work done local people that, you know, everyone has a story of you know, from Houston that involves Johnson Space Center. So I reached out to the historic societies in Dallas and Austin and San Antonio, and Houston and had conversations..

"What do we need to fix to? Let's start restoring this Apollo control center. Yeah. Didn't work quite that easily. Yeah. So we there was a lot of stakeholders that wanted to control the project and from flight operations external relations space center, Houston, and the, so as a national landmark in order to restore a national, the national historic landmark it needs to be done under the secretary of the interior standards for restoration. And so, of course, none of those people have those qualifications. So I push to make sure it got under my contract. And that's where Adam comes in. And so we, we did a lot of work on the historic furnishings, report gave us the basis, and from that we, they did the in depth research that they needed to do, and you want to go into that until the moment. So the you're right. The historic furnishings report really laid that foundation for, you know, just kind of initial assessment, you know, I know and I went in the very first time you know, you get goosebumps on their they're on a job. So, okay. I got to get over all of this and start looking around and, and, you know, look at the condition, and, and it was pretty rough. And so thank goodness. We had the, the furnishings report to, to start from. But then, you know then you start identifying some of the holes in that furnishings report looking around it, you know, some of the materials that has been replaced over time, and we didn't we hit the libraries and the archives and the photographs and the video and get all of this information. And then we, we did interviews with how many how many about twenty five twenty five flight controllers. We did interviews with in the room and and learn, you know what they did. And you know what? Buttons on the consoles. Were lit most or the interacted with most and you know, then we take what they say, even about lighting in the room. You know what was the overall since of lighting is darker was at lighter, you know, all these specific details so that we can reconstruct that when we get, when we get to that point, when we, you know, at that point, we weren't sure, you know, are we even going to be funded to do this, this work? We just know there's a lot of work that needs to be done. And there's a lot of details that have to go back to the, the original because, you know, that room was used after Apollo. And, and you, you know, through shuttle and, or for a few missions and shuttle, and, and like that, so we had to kind of go backwards in time..

"And so when I applied for was five thousand dollars to do I'm a some sort of video or something for the visitors to kind of experience the moon landing, and the regional director of the park service called me and was very interested in the project. And so they came down and talk to me. And we showed them the mission control and it's state of disrepair. And so they offered us offered me twenty thousand dollars to do a historic furnishings report. And then they would put in the other twenty thousand dollars. And so they had it commissioned, and what that is a historic furnishings report is a very indepth the detailed analysis of the mission control center, and from what it should have been or what it was to how would everything we would need to do to restore it. And so from there, we held a workshop with the park service to kind of bring in the. Holders and that was the the beginning of it. They felt very strongly that it is of such world important as a historical site that they felt very strongly that we needed to restore it. So that's how it started and it definitely is. Because let's go right into that. You know what was the condition? What were we looking at what were the rooms and the elements that we were looking at, you know, before we even started restoring it, so the room about in the mid nineties, after they moved to building thirty south, the, the room was just unoccupied? It was the, the consoles were not lit up or anything. There was nothing on the consoles, you know, no documents or anything and it was open to whoever could get into thirty could go and sit at the consoles and a doll. The phones press the buttons do whatever they wanted to visitors from space center Houston win in the viewing room and then level nine tours and VIP tours would go on the fl. Floor. And so it was not really ever maintained as far as upkeep. They did do some maintenance when chairs would break or something like that. But it was really not kept in any sort of fashion that it should have been. Yeah, it was kind of just people can go in and do whatever they want it, but it wasn't really treated as a important place in history. Right. And that's where this kind of came in, as we want this to look and feel and be treated as an important place in history. So when you're talking about this room people coming in and touching what is the room? So the room, it's the, the we call it the Apollo mission control center. There's actually to mission control centers, mocha one, which is on the second floor and then motor to was on the third floor and the so the mission control center is includes the, the motor, which is the mission operations control room. That's the room with the console's, then the vistors viewing room r v. VP room which was the seeding that was behind the room and had the big glass window, so you so the family members and dignitaries would sit in there and watch what was going on in the motor than the simulation control room, which is where the simulators would be. And they're the ones that when they would test and do simulations. They were the ones that, would, you know, send them all the air messages and all the problems, and so that was the simulation room. And then the bat cave is actually the room behind the large summary display screens that included all of the projectors, and the timing systems and the clocks at the very top. And so that called the bat cave because it's all black and so those, those four rooms our what were we we turn the mission control center. Okay. But at least attractive room visually is cool. Sounding one the back cave. It is cool. All right. So those are all the elements to, to really capture this part of history. And these were all the things that you were looking at now obviously, we're, we're years into the project, all of the, you know, the proposals the written with the things you wrote down of, here's what we want to adjust those. Are those started to happen? You know, talk about that process where where we went from a proposal..

"This includes the mission operations control room to more commonly known here as mocha to the visiting or sorry, the visitors viewing room and the simulation control room and a room called the bat cave, super cool. And we'll get into what that is many human spaceflight missions were. Strolled out of this center, most of the Gemini and Apollo missions, including Apollo eleven the first landing of humans on the moon, the building where all of these live are within the within the Johnson Space Center is called building thirty, which was given national historic landmark status in nineteen eighty five it's been toward over the years, hundreds of people walking in and out and through that came more wear, and tear on this national icon soon. It just wasn't the same as it used to be. Now, we're nearing the end of project, spanning six years to restore this historic landmark to look exactly as it did in July nineteen sixty-nine, capturing the essence of what it was like five decades ago during some of the greatest moments in human space. Exploration today. We'll be talking more in depth about the journey thus far to restore this stork landmark with Sandra Tetley and Adam Graves. Sandra is a historic preservation, officer and real property officer here at the Johnson Space Center, and Adam is the lead for the project base with the company gravitate. These folks are at the forefront of this, monumental project set to be comp-. Fleet later this month, a big part of this project is allowing visitors to experience a moment in Apollo history. Not only by being able to see this restored setting, but by playing audio from Apollo eleven that had been re recently digitized Houston. We have a podcast host, Pat Ryan takes over towards the end of this episode to chat with Ben Feist a web developer among other things who helped process, this recently recovered, audio from Apollo mission control, and bring it to life as part of this experience. And this is a very exciting topic. So let's jump right into it with MRs Sandra Tetley, and Dr Adam Graves first, and then wrap up with pats conversation with Ben Feist enjoy. County. Mark. We have. Sandra. And Adam, thank you so much for coming on to talk about this great project. That's happening with the Apollo mission control center. Right. Thank you for having us. We're excited. So we're in the final stretch of this ambitious project, you know, being set to complete later this month were aiming for June, hopefully that sticks. How are you guys feeling right now in the home stretch pretty good? We're on schedule. There's a few things that have come up just little, you know, little things coordination, mainly, but we're we're feeling good. We're excited starting to come together and with a project this long. You know, we're talking six years. You know, this is very exciting for this to all come together. Of course, there's going to be things along the way that changed. But this is this is very cool. I wanted to start by taking it all the way back, really, but six years ago, you know, how did this how did this all start? When did we start really considering you know, let's, let's restore this historic landmark so back in March of two thousand and thirteen I applied for a grant. With the, the National Park Service heritage program, and that's because building thirties and national historic landmark..

The next thing is in control center the. What started out as an optional tile for the apple TV remote as like an extension of the apple TV remote app in Iowa's adding it automatically. If you have an apple TV on the network believe. And now it's been redesigned. And it will also not only control apple TV's but home kit TV's, and it's got a new look and so on the iphones like a full screen thing on the ipad. It's just a very large remote. But not quite full screen. The. Do you know it's different about it for the apple TV? Besides kind of the way, it looks like functionally or anything change there. I think site. Yeah. I think I think is now a button on the now playing control like if you're playing video on the apple TV, and your iphone knows that you can tap it and then launch their mode from the lock screen, which is need without even doing control center. And then there is the behavior where now if you turn you phone off in the control center was open, you turn your screen back on, and it's still launched even over the lock screen, which is nice because like the that was one of the advantages of the apple TV remote app is that like you lock your screen cl-, you know, trying to back on the remote episode there. But in control center that would before this beta version that would dismiss that could be a bug. But if not it is a nice feature. Right. And I think he's actually meant to be intentional even if right now, it's a glitch e because when you launch the full screen it puts the home indicator by come to the screen to kind of signal to you that it's a new motor. She that you can dismiss. Whereas normally if you're just opened in a control center widget indicators isn't displayed it's a positive change because. Yeah. Yeah.
