Cornell University To Require COVID-19 Vaccine For On-Campus New York Students
"For its students and staff. CBS is least Matteo has the details. Cornell University officials say all students and staff returning to Ithaca, Geneva and Cornell Tech campuses will be required to get a covert shot for the fall semester. Those with religious beliefs or medical conditions that don't allow them to receive the vaccine will be exempt. Officials say. The move will place them in a better position to resume in person classes. The New York College follows other institutions like Rutgers Universe. City who announced a school wide mandate last month.

All You Need To Know About Earthworm Castings
"Are going to talk about earth. worm castings aka earthworm poop. You know it's interesting castings as sort of a It's it's the standard term for the excrement from earthworms. It's what they cast aside. I guess that's where it comes from. It's a very interesting thing. It's like many manures and this is earthworm manure. Basically it was what we're talking about Like many manures. It has fertilizer value for plant. But earthworm castings turn out to have much more value as well. I feel like castings is a euphemism because nobody wants to say poop but there you go. I remember hearing about them. I probably ten or fifteen years ago. They're much more mainstream now. And at the time. I worried about using them in house plants and i realize now that that was an unfounded concern. Using the castings in in moderate amounts as a fertilizer is perfectly good for house. Plants isn't it. I mean this time of year. That's what people are thinking about. It is wonderful for houseplant. Wonderful for for most plant. Its first of all one hundred percent organic humus all right but the basic thing that makes it different from many other Fertilizers i guess. You'd say organic fertilizers is. There's a rich microbiological community going on in earthworm castings. That is good for your plants. Well tell me more about this microbiological community. Do you mean micronutrients or do you mean. Living things in the castings well. I mean Bacteria first of all But good bacteria right. That's number one number two. In terms of fertilizing value they are rich in iron sulfur calcium nitrogen phosphorus and potassium right but they also are believe it or not not all readily available to plant apparently in the process of going through the earthworm the castings get coded with something that makes the ingredients available to plants very slowly. Wait a minute. This is like nature's time release. Fertilizer is what you're telling me exactly. That's exact- that's fascinating. What is it nature this time. Release that is a wonderful thing. The people who have studied this and by the way earthworm castings have been extensively. Studied at ohio state at cornell. University uc davis and one study at cornell demonstrated earthworm castings suppressed damping off disease in seedlings. Wow all right. And they naturally degraded the protective covering of some insect pests so they dissolve the insect pest from the in. Yes so love that yes. At ohio state university they found that earthworm castings enhanced seed germination plant growth flower and fruit production. They curb to certain plant diseases. Including root rod and crown rot and inhibited. Insect pests including mites aphids. And mealy bug. This is like way more than just a fertilizer. Then it's kind of a magic pill a one thing you know. I wondered about is. How do you know how much to apply. And from what i've read. Apparently it's it's difficult to add too much. I mean you don't want you don't want a plant in solid worm castings but but it's something that you can apply regularly without worrying that you're going to burn the fine roots of your plants. Which is concerned with a with a commercial fertilizer. Yeah i think you know for the general rule that i use for house plants and we're thinking now in the middle of winter about plants indoors but the general rule that i use is about a quarter of a cop cop four a container that somewhere between six and ten inches in diameter.
The Importance of No by Chris lovett
"No is one of the most important skills you need at work right now. Spoken to lots of people recently and the majority of them are at some extreme level of busy may be so busy that the word busy just doesn't really cut it anymore. Super-busy has become the next stage of normal and the newest superhero. That probably needs killing off stacked up against it. Chaos or more words of her recently describing individuals perceive situation. Sometimes people are so beat down that words no longer come out anymore and just a shake of the head and deep breath is all they can muster as a response to the innocent. How's it all going. What is business and yes. Culture says to me is that a lot of us are really finding it difficult to say no. At the moment we've got accustomed to playing catch up and wrestling with a million and one things to do. Maybe we've programmed ourselves to think that it's how we operate best or because everyone else is so busy it would feel out of place for us not to be in the same boat. It's quickly becoming normal to be overwhelmed with stuff to do and when you stop and think about it. That's not normal of heard of too many people reaching breaking point before their body mind or even partner forces them to stop. Do we find using this tiny two letter word. Such difficult skill to perfect most of the time we feel compulsion to say yes and accommodate wherever we can say no to others makes us feel uncomfortable. It makes us ghetto. Squirmy men awkward. Generally when someone asks us to do something. Our default in instinctive response is to say yes or fit it in saying no stirs up intensely negative emotions. Embarrassment and guilt says vanessa bones professor of organizational behavior at cornell university in one of a recent studies. A group of people reach loaned a book from the library and then instructed to face it half of the subjects recorded the fact that it felt wrong to but they went and did it anyway later. Discover that those who chose to deface. The book found it so difficult to reject the person who had asked. They just couldn't refuse william yuri in his book. The power of positive. No save the deal. Save the relationship and still say no suggests that the dilemma we can face in saying no often originates from quote an internal struggle between reinforcing our own sense of power or knowledge with a simultaneous desire to foster relationship and quote so may look like subconscious self sabotage poor actually hardwired to agree to doing stuff even though we may not want to or believe. It's the right thing to do. Humans found considerable benefits being in groups notably hunting and staying alive being a group increase chances of survival with the ability to share resources so we learnt to adopt a sense that being agreeable to the group dynamic was good for us. Clearly a was. If you are not agreeable to the dynamic of the group you were ostracized and excluded therefore damaging your ability to obtain access to the required resources needed so acceptance is seen as a survival mechanism and therefore saying no to your boss makes us think will be perceived negatively and therefore excluded this inability to say no can also come from our upbringing with parents manned engagement with teachers. I very rarely said no to any of them. But when i did it didn't go down too. Well chase up the stairs with a wind. Spoon given detention or back in the day rarely said no to authorities figure it would just be riddled with negative consequences. Plus as we've grown up. We started to connect no with rejection and disappointment. The fear of getting a no from someone held you back from ever going to talk to them or was that just me. We now swerve projecting that feeling of rejection on the someone else by accommodating all sorts of requests does is true in both our business and personal lives the people pleaser within us likes to create and sustain connections with others and anything that threatens to break that bond will cause us to worry saying no to joining a meeting. Not helping someone asked for it or turning down. That invitation creates a sense of panic. So in the end we take the easy way out the path of least resistance and then before we know it we've become buried under a huge pile of yes saying yes to something immediately removes any risk conflict. Which most of us will tend to do all we can to avoid but the effects of that yes can cause severe long-term damage to us as individuals as well as in relationships and businesses.
Byzantine Fault Tolerant Consensus
"Everyone this is ted. I'm from cornell university. I'm finishing up my phd now my fifth year. I also worked part time at avalanches which is in our startup. i co-founded with adviser. Tell me a little bit about your phd work. What are your specific areas of interest. Yes so i think for the a democ- part you know as a phd. I mostly were distributed systems and that sounds like a very broad topic so more specifically within the systems i'm mostly focused on consensus and within the consensus topic. They are also different kinds of consensus protocol. I mostly focused on so called. Byzantine fault tolerant consensus protocols or t protocols. We are nowadays very hot topics. Pickus people are interested in blockchain technology and walk. Chang's need such kind of consensus in order to work. We'll definitely spend some time. Talking about blockchain byzantine fault. Tolerance is not as newest blockchain. So it's a i guess. An older theory. Could you help some of the listeners with the basics. What is bef t absolutely so. Yeah indeed. I think there has been like misconception. Many people think of b. f. Some kind of new stuff especially in that community even when we're talking about blockchain's but to me when i started my phd at cornell this of t kind of consensus as the coolest consensus at heard of at a time. And before actually dive into that world so what is not so byzantine fault. Tolerance has a weird name. So what is byzantine is. Sounds like the name of the old empire in l. a probably medieval or or some time period and the reason that this kind of protocol got his name as thanks to leslie lamport so may have heard of this research. His very well known ing Systems community clothing his works on taxes all sorts of consensus stuff. The also proposed the name for this new career of consoles protocols to be. Fd consists and beat byzantine just is part of the story if you read his paper about the whole consensus. So let's forget about the name of paying so what this protocol is usually about as maybe you are familiar with the phnom visiting kind of consensus or you know people usually call them crash fault tolerant protocols such as taxes or rafts so those protocols they work great and they're widely adopted by the current industry. Google uses passes as a core for cloud service and the reason that we need to another category of consensus protocol is because this kind of protocol a does not assume malicious behavior by the participating machines nose so that means than those can only crash build knows can only like human beings they can always say. Oh i die and then you just shut down or crashed without creating any noise into the channel into the network so then people begin to think about how we should handle the case where there some node. That could go crazy. Say i'm an node than when i don. I don't die peaceful eight. But i crave bunch of noises. The noise could be interfering the entire natural and even worse. I could be you know. Some zombie not controlled by the x. Turno attackers so i could exhibit arbitrary behaviour visit lab. I'm like a you know the insider send on by some other parties. So i'm like spying this system. So how do you handle this kind of situation in a protocol. While at the same time you still want to achieve the same goal as the noun byzantine one usually call them or crush full tolerant protocols we want to achieve the same goal but was different assumption
Coronavirus cases go up, the market goes down
"Yet things up it's pretty simple. Virus cases are way way higher in way more places. There is no relief package coming probably February at the earliest if at all, if everybody is honest with themselves. And that's it that all spills over into the real economy which the stock market is not thank you very much but it does reflect and so you get a cratering day on Wall Street today all three major indices off three three and a half percent all sectors got clobbered including the reason commercial aviation. We mentioned that because Boeing reported a quarterly loss of four hundred and sixty, six, million dollars this morning planes just aren't selling right now company also said it's GonNa lay off and other seven thousand people. So marketplaces and Euler gets his going with a story about a company that is a big factor in that real economy I was talking about. Boeing said today expects to end next year with around one hundred, thirty, thousand employees. It started twenty twenty with a workforce of one, hundred, sixty, thousand. Richard Otto Lafi as an aviation analyst at -Til Group historically, Boeing's been the world single biggest planemaker and the biggest single exporting manufacturer in the US. So it really isn't needle mover in terms of the broader economy and Sorta like Ge. Boeing has worked to diversify Boeing has a lot of commercial military defense software and engineering programs. It's not just building the. Big Seven, forty, seven jets of old. That's Arthur Wheaton at Cornell University. It's a pretty big corporation and has a huge impact on supply chains. He says there's a vast array of subcontractors in the US and worldwide that produce four and with Boeing. So in demand for Boeing products declines, it's felt by many of Boeing seventeen, thousand suppliers like those who make. Jet Engines and parts for wings keeping my you know these are not just people that are turning wrench. Michael Boyd is an aviation industry consultant in Evergreen Colorado. So it's not like just getting rid of couple of mechanics you're getting rid of some highly trained people that you're going to have to get back eventually when people eventually returned to flying but Richard. APPALACHIA te'o groups as his fear is that manufacturing will soon start feeling the pain of the pandemic like retail and hospitality already have and I think unfortunately, we're bound to see additional production cuts in job losses in the commercial aerospace industry along with other similar losses and other parts of the economy because as the biggest companies go so goes the American economy.

"cornell university" Discussed on Scientific Sense
"So anyway that's lots of progress was being made in part because of well two main things one was. Increasing the size of the telescope apertures that was being deployed on the satellite observatories, and the other was improving the sensitivity of the detectors that were being installed on those telescopes like cameras that we have while everywhere in our phones and and on regular optical telescopes. Underground today. So those two. Are, really what this paper was about. Pushing forward from ground based observations and one of the reasons why it's so important to move to the ground while it's many many times cheaper. You know this morning between ten. Times cheaper than flying satellites. And a two, we can build much larger telescopes from the ground. That's why in the title, there is large aperture telescope. So one a scale of telescope that is particularly useful for these measurements. We're not talking about huge telescopes but are five. Six Meters? And the so five to six meter primary mirror apertures so you. Go. Ahead. Get a question so. The. Wind. Turbines. About optical telescopes. In this case. it's just a different kinds of concerns that affect the performance of our measurements. So right with optical telescopes the. What's often what's often limiting the performance of the measurements is Often referred to as the scene which is like the twinkling of stars due to atmospheric fluctuations. In, that twinkling actually DEF- racks, the light because of. Variations in the atmosphere up above the and makes it so that the optical telescopes CanNot. Usually achieve as good optical performance as are designed for. So in the microwave measurements. It's a little bit different. We don't see twinkling. Yet, but we do see actually emission from the the atmosphere and it ridiculous. We see emission from oxygen. And water. Atoms in the atmosphere, and so that's really what drives us to build these telescopes at very remote high elevation and extremely dry sites on earth. So we actually. Build and deploy optical telescopes at different. Where there's the typically aren't as high elevation, but there is extremely uniform atmospheric conditions versus for microwave sites we're building them as high as we can go. So these telescopes in Chile cosmetology telescope that I've been working on for almost two decades is at about seventeen thousand feet elevation and to have the new observatories were working on one. We'll be right next door, the Simon's observatory, and then there's the seacat prime. Project. that. I'm also playing a big role in and led by Cornell University that will be built at around eighteen thousand feet. Eighteen thousand nine hundred four, hundred feet elevation fifty, six, hundred meters also in Chile. And one of the driest telit higher elevation deserts on. Earth. Okay..
A new month, same ol bad economy
"In Los Angeles, I'm Kai Ryssdal Thursday day the first day of October. Good always to have you along. Let us take stock. Shall we at the beginning of a program on business in the economy of the state of business and this economy because honestly? Could be better here are just a couple of numbers from today's news eight, hundred, thirty, seven, thousand people lost their jobs last week. Personal incomes were down almost three percent in August and related and to be clear time is running out for help from the federal government. There is no deal as of yet which means that all across the country from neighborhoods around Disneyland to the outer boroughs of New, York? City?

The line to get food often wraps around the block. It's a mix of young people, children and elderly the bronx part of the poorest congressional district in the US.

"I'm Derek Limb. Currently, going into my last year of undergraduate study at Cornell University. Very neat to what in particular you studying. Study math and computer science majors and more specifically I do work in the applied mathematics side of things in the machine learning and data science side of things very cool for me I come more from the computer science side. I have a vague sense of what applied maths means, but I will able his vague I'm curious do you have any particular methods or ways in which that blends nicely with the data science that you might WanNa share oh? Yeah. Applied Mathematics is already a vague. Term. So don't worry about that. But yeah, it's very broad term but tools that I like to use, and that are generally very helpful. Are things like numerical computing numerical when your algebra optimization and label a lot of those as applied math but it's definitely a very blurry term. Yeah. Neat areas though a of interesting research going on in that spot, the paper I invited you on to speak about is I, guess related to that but sort of unique and interesting in its own way title. Is. Expertise dynamics within crowd sourced musical knowledge curation, a case study of the Genius Platform. So maybe a good opening question here is, what is the genius platform for anybody who doesn't know? Yeah. So there's a website genius dot com to really great website hosts all sorts of different texts content mostly by it primarily hosts song lyrics, especially, rap lyrics because that's where the origin of the site came from. So what happens is you use crowdsourcing use the power of the crowd to transcribe. Song. Lyrics. Molly's different songs at an after that users also come and annotate the song lyrics. So if there's some lyrics that use some type of terminology that not everybody might know or some lyrics for which is interesting backstory that's what annotations seek to answer an annotation provide all types of very interesting knowledge and information and all types of different media to help explain what lyrics are about could you contrast the content to some of those user contributions to maybe what wikipedia users put into the Kapadia. Yes. Yes. So a lot of the annotations written with I'd like to call it like a view of culture of rap culture and they will use the slang terms and all this that rappers use I mean obviously because you have to explain the lyrics that rappers use but also they include parts of hip hop culture end generally music culture that are prevalent today such as there are a lot of twitter links and links to interviews that artists do in these annotations, and it just provides a lot of really interesting stuff when I think of Wikipedia or if we I guess rewind ten or fifteen years to win, it was getting going it seemed like every stand up comedian. Joke about you know it's going to be accurate because literally anyone can change it. But that did seem to pan out wikipedia startlingly accurate in a lot of situations. But maybe part of the advantage of Wikipedia has is the goal is to publish. You know the sort of unbiased truth that's what an encyclopedia should be. Leaks are I don't know that there is a ground truth in lyrics. Are there issues of pollution in the state of set like people who are into the Polish Dead Beatles conspiracy tagging the lyrics that They think are clues or something like that. How do they keep it clean? Yes. So there are a lot of studies on wikipedia that show in certain fields actually wikipedia quite accurate in covers a lot of information, but there's also a lot of interesting studies unlike edit wars but I have not really found instances of edit wars on genius, which is nice and maybe people don't make Super Controversial annotations but I definitely noticed when analyzing the annotations that a lot of these users are definitely putting a lot of their own. Into, these notations, and actually quite a good amount of speculation and you know, maybe the stakes aren't as high for genius as they are for an encyclopedia that a ton of people as a very important source every day. But it's also something that I think genius Kinda wants to avoid because if you read some of their like frequently asked questions, pages or things like. That they will recommend you to add a lot of factual sources but I'm sure that they definitely like the opinionated takes sometimes also not everything can be factual when you don't have the original artist interpreting your lyrics. But yeah, I don't think it's that problematic and I actually think in fact, it has an interesting twist to all these annotations it allows users to add an. Interesting twist to their own annotations.
What happened to the Postal Service?
"If you had the United States postal service as a partisan political proxy on your Twenty Twenty Election Bingo card. You. Win. I guess the politics of it we will assume you're mostly familiar with speaker. Nancy Pelosi is calling the house back into session legislation likely postmaster general and CEO Louis Joy has said he will testify. But as all of that plays out a detour here if we might to the postal services business model reality yes. The digital age has brought its challenges to the USPS but as Congress tries to figure out how to repair the damage. Might do well to look in the mirror for a little bit. Here's marketplace's Nancy Marshall Genzer. The Postal Service is supposed to be self funded not getting any government money, but the post office is still tightly regulated by Congress and in two thousand and six Congress passed a law requiring the postal service to prepay health benefits for retirees. Jim Campbell is a lawyer and consultant on the Postal Service resorted the postal service to pay for ten years about five and. A half billion dollars a year into this prepayment fund that thinking was paid forward. Make sure the money is there when retirees need it. But Campbell, says federal agencies don't have to make these prepayments and the post office couldn't do it. Campbell says it missed more than half of the payments to make matters worse congress capped postal office price increases for letters circulars at the rate of inflation. So the postal services kind of caught in this squeeze. Cornell University public. Policy Professor, Getty's says Congress, also still requires the post office to deliver to every mailbox in the country six days a week. So this is a recipe for fiscal problems serious fiscal problems and serious debt frank disco has been tracking that he's chief actuary at the US Government Accountability Office. He says the postal services more than one hundred, sixty, billion dollars in debt over the past decade, the dead and unfunded liabilities like pensions and healthcare have outpaced the revenues the. Postal Service takes in. So it's doubled from a little more than one times annual revenue to over double annual revenue to disco says the Postal Service has been losing money for a decade, not a sustainable business model, but the post office can't change that model without Congressional
The Iroquois Nationals Team | The History of Lacrosse
"Hello welcome to Iroquois history and legends. Today we're GONNA be talking about the history of Lacrosse and current status of the Iroquois national team. Today. We don't have just one guest we have multiple group. I'm just going to let them introduce themselves one by one if you gentlemen could just give me a brief background on who you are just a little synopsis on how you're associated with the Iroquois national team. REX LINES MONOLOGUE NATION I've been a Lacrosse player has this as long as I can remember as I could walk at sticking my hand going up on Doug a nation it's been. A big part of my my life, my lifestyle the and I was on the First Leroy national team in eighty three and. Been in three tournaments and. The program at percents. I'm Leon Nolan multiple on Gatien. My mother's Aquasonichowie Mohawks enroll visit. Mohawk will clan. Lamb. I've been involved with your co-nationals across in about early two thousands and then k back. But you're a half ago and serve as the executive, director and board member. and. Tissue late at SMU and while the across like wreck, all my life and Real honor to be a part of the organization again to help with the many challenges facing us. So, we're very pleased to have this opportunity to give him a good historical perspective in a future perspective on warmer. Had IT. For us. And David Brian from the Seneca nation and the wolf clan I grew up playing cross started off with a new toll across went off to college played at Cornell University on a couple of national championship teams. I was also on the I Iroquois national team. And I've been a lifelong participant with your coin nationals as either as a player. Executive, director or board member and I'm still in like brexit it's kind of A. Lifelong journey to have our people be represented in Lacrosse whether it's at the college level professional level or international level. I'm Randy Scott some from six nations on -Tario A maternal clan. Mohawk like these guys are saying, I've started across when. You know I gotta stick when I was born. I've been playing ever since it's a big part of my life I played professional across for. The Georgia. Swarm. the Boston cannons and at the world stage with Uruguay nationals I've been playing with Uruguay national since. Two Thousand Eight Also. Went to Syracuse University got my degree there and. You know. Like these guys are saying, Lacrosse, has been a big part of my life in it's It's awesome. Thank you very much gentlemen. That's a lot of talent and a lot of experience for me growing up in Western. New York every. Year, has a Lacrosse program. Every College in university has lacrosse program, but there might be some people in the country that really might not know what it is or what the history of it is. So which one of you mind giving me a a synopsis of Old, this game is where it came from what the basic just of the rules are by I'll take that question. Well, it's part of our creation story so. know your guess is good as ours. You know it came from the spire creation story came from the Sky World. So in in our cosmology re talk about. Across in all being played in creators land. And before it came down to Turtle Island here. So it's as old as we are as Randy said, you know your mail you're one of three things you're born. You're you're a a speaker which measure speaker of ceremonies language or a singer, the singer of the ceremony or your across Blair. That's how significant across is to our culture. And you always have the exception to the rule where somebody's all And we have real lot of examples of that but let's how important it is to are. inherently. It's part of four yards culture. It's site in part of that responsibility to share the scheme. With others which we've been very successful at. Now, I believe sixty six countries have. Lacrosse organizations within her order states. Within our borders and it's been really I. Think we've done a great job of showing the green game with the many many around the world and or looking forward to continuing that and. One of the. Mainstays who are Bruh given this responsibility directly by the. Sedition confederacy in one, thousand, nine, hundred, three. And we were given that responsibility to golden compete internationally represent the initially in that regard play fair play hard and spread this game around the world.
Researchers Use Artificial Intelligence To Study Elephant Calls
"Which is a problem If you study them, we basically have no idea what they're doing, how they're using the landscape all of those kinds of things. Peter Rag is the behavioral Ecologist at Cornell University. And he says one way to solve the problem is to eavesdrop on the elephants instead. Leads Cornell's elephants were listening project, which uses an array of microphones in the rainforests of Central Africa to record the rumbling and trumpeting of elephants. They pick up other sounds too, like the chest beats of guerillas. By now, he estimates they have gathered a 1,000,000 hours of tape. And he says, analyzing that much tape is a beast. Very, very slow, very tedious. Jonathan Jones, Selman agrees. He volunteered on the project as a teenager, hand picking elephant calls. He thought there had to be a better way.

A very open conversation with you and let me just frame it up right now for people because obviously right now in America we have. All these conversations that are going on around racism and Antiracism and I think it's really important bit you and I can have a conversation that will bring value. To this current narratives? and specifically, I'd like to have this conversation be more around kind of nutrition and health or lack thereof. Going on in this in this country at let let me also say Jerick that I know that you you are so well educated you're a intercultural sensitivity expert and I want to say up front that if I'd say anything that is inappropriate or you know like, Hey, dude, that was not cool I. Hope you'll call me on it and then and then helped me figure out the best way to say it or phrase it because I'm I don't even want to pretend like a nuanced or or or very good at this. Let me let me let you in on a little secret as we get more. Make these words expert. You gotta take that kind of stuff with a grain of salt you know. I am studying this stuff a talk a lot about it but you know all of us are still trying to learn as much as we can about human behavior. What makes us tick and why and so same here if I never abs you the wrong way I. Hope you say what's Eric? Louis. Feels like this what are you me? Because, we don't have these open conversations than We can't move anywhere and anytime you engage in some discussions when you start talking about things like race for instance a, it can get dicey for people but but I'm always willing to take that risk because I'm looking at toward the other side of it where we can all learn and grow together. So so don't be don't be worried about that. Good. So it's okay if we get a little uncomfortable, it just allows us to get more comfortable on the road ness, right? Absolutely. All right. Good. So I I WANNA just start out by. Just a little bit about you, and then I want you to correct me or go back if anything you know. I missed something to add something. So I and I think it's important that we say it is you're a black man right and start out and to start out. And to start out. Because a lot of people are just going to be hearing this on audio and not right. is that the correct way to refer to yourself when I referenced you? So I'm fine with African American with black I I'm I've I've really been trying to think about these labels and I'm really urging people to use you know American from. Descent. Something like that because I am in some ways, I think when you put something before American is serves as a little bit of an asteroid. And it almost subconsciously makes people think that that's a different kind of American. Of American not full American so I would prefer even though I'm the only person probably saying this right now I prefer that we move away from the Asian American or African American are you know Latin x American I prefer that we say you know American of African descent I want to emphasize the fact that we have that shared experience as Americans. But on a personal note, you know black whatever. Best. That's fine. Okay. Okay. You you grew up in east Saint Louis in what's what's considered probably the most distressed I think part of town in America. Probably said yeah, right. This had some challenges. Yeah and and I want you to talk about that You are like I said, you're incredibly well educated. You've got a bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois. You have two masters degrees from Cornell University and you've got a doctor of education degree from the University of North Florida. Okay and I know you've got a lot more degrees that maybe you can tell us about but I'm GonNa stop there for now. You your family. Eat a whole food plant based diet absolutely and. We're going to dive dive into that. Is it fair to say that today are you the CEO and President of Conrad Consultant Group? Yes I am I am. So I still have I have the kind of consulting group also work a fulltime with an HR software company OATEN software that soon to Change Our Name, we've just merged with the KRONOS. So I'm the quote unquote thought leader I run the thought leadership group of for ultimate software where I get to delve into some of these issues around of nutrition. And Wellness and all of that as well. I spent twenty years as an HR practitioner So so this really gives me a chance to to go back to my roots and little bit with still think about these ideas and try to solve these. Really. Complex problems that we're we're still struggling with.
Apps like Robinhood make investing easier. Maybe too easy.
"APPs like Robin Hood of Made Stock Market, investing easier, but at what cost from American public media this is Marketplace Tech Jack Stewart in Hollywood. Maybe. You're one of the ten million plus people who've set up an account on the trading APP. Robin Hood the company's been in the news recently as people start to take a critical look at its business model. Robin hoods the highest profile example of APPs that say they're increasing access to the stock market by making trades free. Critics say their game `fine trading with psychological nudges and push notifications, which encouraged frequent and potentially risky trades. There are few controls or limits for what could be inexperienced users in June. Twenty year old Alex, Kerns killed himself after he logged onto Robin Hood and saw what he thought was a negative seven hundred thirty thousand dollar balance Professor Vicki Bogan founder of Cornell University's Institute for Behavioral and household. Finance researches the psychology of investing. Being able to trade online is nothing new, but beyond just the. Marginal incremental convenience of having on your phone versus on your laptop. Something about some of these, APPS is that they're designed to encourage people to trade and to trade more. because. It's part of their business model. They make more money when people make more trades, and so you know when you make a trade, there's confetti in congratulations that are encouraging people to trade more, so it's beyond just the reduction in transaction 'cause it's also the way the APPS are structured to nudge people to participate more and to trade more. So I suspect what these platforms would argue is that they're just making it easier for people to access the stock market and build wealth in the way. The wealthy people have always been able to do. Is that a fair argument? Yeah, I'm very sympathetic to that argument. I actually on some level. I agree that it's always a good thing to give. Households have access to financial markets. You're exactly right in that. Participating in the stock market is. With a long term investment horizon is a way that people. Can and have been able to build wealth. But these ads cannot exist in an unregulated unchecked environment. What sort of protections would you like to see? There are a lot of things. But. The person that can Pinatubo aside as a result of seeing this negative balance was only twenty years old. And so this is a person that can't. Buy Alcohol and can trade options in a way that could get him in very serious financial leverage. And so in the same way there were some guidelines protections with the credit card act in two thousand nine limiting access for young adults with credit card to credit cards. I think we need to think about some of those types of protections as well. That's freaky Bogan. Cornell University after Alex Kuhn's death Robin Hood released a statement saying it might restrict more complicated trades from some customers with checks to make sure they know what they're risking with options trading in particular.

Hotels Clean Up Their Acts to Win Guests' Confidence
"If we needed another reminder of how hard the hotel industry has been hit by Covid nineteen on Tuesday, Hilton Worldwide Holdings announced that it would cut two thousand one hundred corporate jobs across the US, roughly sixty percent of hotel rooms are empty, according to research firm SDR and that doesn't include the thousands of hotels it of closed for good since the beginning of the pandemic. But summer vacation season is upon us, and Hilton is trying to convince customers. It's safe to check in again to do so. They're coming clean about their virus. Safety measures and launching a new campaign called the clean stay program to WANNA. Be Vacationers out of their homes. Hilton has assembled a virus fighting a team that includes the maker of Lysol and the Mayo. Clinic's infection prevention and control team.

That's right. I remember that I remember that very that was big news at the time wild. That's amazing so you guys really have a lot of expertise coming from different backgrounds but all very relevant to what you do in very interesting so how. How long ago was this that you all met like? How how? How does this company? Yeah so minimum. Method Cornell Tech and I know for the fifteen years but the company fall immediately after graduation so incorporated in June twenty eighth Dean so Less than two years ago. Talk about what we do but basically on on the concept had that accepted to news roundtable accelerator local leading accelerator in New York City And who went from there by developing the MVP getting our first big pilot We have something that we can actually converted to annual contract. Raised are around in a four million dollars the less July and today we're at the end of seventeen people in New York City California and Delaware. Wow that's great. Congratulations on that. So far that's amazing so to tell us more about the company for so what what is it. What do you guys do absolutely so I wrote? One sentence is a black play conversation. I blog form four healthcare providers. So let me break down. Abates conventionally I as I mentioned we're trying to focus on but also the so as long as it's natural language that we don't care about the medium actually understanding natural language in healthcare providers wanted to start with and enterprises organizations Massive amounts of data and That this data is heart navigating and maybe patients or general users. Find it hard to find. Whatever they're looking for or complete the tasks in the transaction did they want to complete and finally in that's the most important aspect of our solution is the blogging play. So why research assistant markets and the generals market. We've learned a lot of a lot of the existing solutions are based on a creation platform so Us As a company gives innovation the creation platform where they can define their intense and build workflows or conversation flows officials says X. replied with fly with another Blind we maybe Detroit Branch Users set and found it to be Embargoes There's friction at both the deployment and maintenance organization so we said we try to look for a completely blogging play approach. So what we do. Is We actually up into the existing data sources of the organization scrape them and we basically translating the the date now? Two different data structure which is a knowledge graph which is composed out of the main entities Andrew attributes and disconnections when this ended his attributes and this is our own representations of the Beta and which we can query natural language sessions. Really give them an embedded that piece of code they just copying base to their Website Call Center. Alexa Google and they have their voice assistant or Well basically the content. Yes so I'm not a computer scientist. That seems like maybe you can just explain that a little bit. How are you able to go? And when you're working with different organizations which which presumably have different ways of organizing their data take one piece of code and yet make it applicable to all these different organizations. Yeah absolutely so. I'll explain a one of the main use cases we've found valuable for healthcare provider is is helping their patients. The physician find the physician based on various attributes of this position when talked about their constructing. This nottage raffle and is a natural In this case the entity is a physician. And I can you might be a geology locations that the accepting insurance length that they accept and so on and so what we do. Is We actually go on by this website? And as all of their physicians went Beijing has been so we scrape them. And we don't care whether it's under the physicians or tens of thousands of physicians with scrape them build this knowledge graph and then on every attribute that the wasn't the data we can basically retrieve the relevant dancer. And I'll give you an interesting example show when we first deployed and we thought about you know people can ask seems like looking for cardiologists to speak Spanish. And ethnic cleansing the upper east side right location language specialities insurance men and so on so we destiny the beat and we actually gave to the first female user to death and she asked for an and that's just the use case that we didn't we didn't think of why a person would fit there by gender. Maybe you think it makes a little sense liquid even think about it was amen to recline with the relevant results. Just because the data was there it was a gender female man for each physician. And I think that's the barrel of actually being based on the data says trying to imagine a pretty finding dates. That's very interesting hot. So was essentially intelligent enough to just use the data. That was there but but bring that back so. Wow very

Others describe it as disgrace, an abrupt fall from a position of great prestige. The tests shadow on a highly consequential, but already widely distrusted area of science. How food affects our health when sink has been the director of cornell's food and brand lab for a decade where he studied, how our environment's determine what and how we eat. He was integral in leading the narrative that obesity and diabetes have less to do with individual willpower or flawed person hood than with psychological manip-. Relation by food industry that wants to sell as many cheap calories as possible. He published hundreds of studies that were aimed from conception through execution at changing the food environment to help make the more healthful decision easier in painting the picture of people as highly vulnerable to environmental cues. He famously demonstrated how when eating from bottomless bowls secretly replenished with soup from the inside, people tend to eat more. The active eating was apparently less about sating hunger than about completing the task of emptying bowl. And so the takeaway was that people should use smaller bowls and take smaller portions. Similarly, he reported that enormous buckets of popcorn at movie theaters can make us eat more even when the popcorn is not palatable. He also popularized the concept of health halos that certain foods carry to make them seem healthy even when they aren't. Because for example, they are marketed as gluten free. Even when they are simply brownies the popularity and apparent practicality of his work translated into implementation. His lab informed food companies implementing the one hundred calorie snack packs. You see in stores, for example, under the idea that these smaller portions would get people to eat less, he led the national committee on dietary guidelines and worked to improve the food ecosystems in public schools, the US army and Google among others on Thursday, cornell's provost, Michael Cutler cov issued a statement touted by a university press release that said, a faculty committee had investigated once think and found that he had committed academic misconduct in his research and scholarship, including misreporting of research data problematic, statistical techniques, failure to properly document and preserve research results and inappropriate authorship. The investigation is the culmination of a wide ranging inquisition into. To answer by journalists and academics. That appears to date back to a post on his blog, two years ago that many readers took as encouraging his graduate students to engage in a pervasive and dishonest practice of p. hacking manipulating data to find positive results that will be more interesting and amenable to publication. Then the results that came the hypotheses, the experiment actually set out to test this lead other researchers to ask one sink for his data, and that led to apologies and promises to redo his statistical analyses.
