"New Michelin ENDURANCE XT Silicone wiper blades on Lee available at WalMart. I can pitch for getting album law was Anthony Ben, thanks for joining us on a Wednesday afternoon with the Steelers. Leading the Ravens 12 7. Just under 4.5 remaining in the second quarter is Boswell kicks it off from right to left. Duvernay will let it go, so the Ravens will start it there 25 yard line. Check the drive summary sponsored by Triple Protection. Old Spice Sweat defense. It's not just strong, it's strong, strong. Steelers go 13 plays 65 yards. 11 passes only one run, and then the field goal from 27 yards out. That's a Ravens win, right? I mean, listen, their offense has been struggling right now for Baltimore were able to stop. Even though they chunk up a bunch of times stealers do they're able to stop him and only force a few goal so again, limiting keeping Baltimore in this football game only down five points. With a depleted roster 1st and 10 from the 25 yard line. The hand off goes to Edwards, and he's bottled up. It is but 23 into the backfield for a loss of the yard. I mean, listen, it is a it's It's beautiful to see T. J. Watt and Dupri off the edge. They just basically sandwiches down no room for the back to get up the football field and just making huge play in the backfield for a top for loss. We're starting to see this now on a regular basis for the Ravens couple penalties on first down a tackle for loss in the last series on first down and now again behind the sticks over 10 yards, Not a good start for Ravens, Second Down and 11 Super Day comes in motion from left to right. Griffin fakes the handoff on al fires, but his intended receiver Fell down. It was Dez Bryant. He lost his footing. So the 3rd 11 coming up Dez Bryant played that last Wednesday game for the Cowboys back in 2012 against the New York Giants, and they had him It would have been a nice completion, but there's Brian's coming out of that, bending it hard on Annan route from the left side Coming, right, just slips If he doesn't slip, it's a nice throw. They moved the change, but Again. Not practicing. Not running Many rounds affects a lot of skill players in this football game. Just being on point when you're not practicing your craft every single day to Wednesday. NFL games Anthony in the last 70 years, Dez Bryant has played in both third down and 11 as Griffin faked the handoff, takes it up the middle and pick up a first down on board. It's out of the 50 and still going as he crossed midfield at is finally taken down after a huge game. Biggest play of the day. For the Ravens. Griffin picks up 39 yards. This is the difference again. Another QB read option. They get heavy pressure up the field by the defensive ends. I don't really.

"P, And it's like All right now you gotta do is take the next step. But the next step doesn't seem to be coming. So it's not as if you're put him on the hot seat. It's just like you're frustrated. You're frustrated because his team should be so good. But it's kind of, you know, turning in place. Um, you know, with Lamar Jackson at the helm, and, um I don't know what the answer is to that. I think Greg Roman's a really good offensive coordinator, but they they're not coming to the solution. Quick enough for a lot of people. Let me ask you this. You say that because they're supposed to be so good, But are they really supposed to be so good? What do you mean? I don't love their receivers. They're offensive. Lines had some serious injuries. The defense is not what it was. I mean, are the Ravens. Are we overstating the talent on the roster of No, We We certainly are because We want it to be. We wanted to be the Kansas City Chiefs like we wanted to be. God, I want to see you guys put up 40 a night, right? I see it because Lamar so good. He's so hard to defend and all he's got to do is be able to throw the football little bit better. And then you guys can thrive. But the reality is who is he throwing the ball to you picked up Dez Bryant bt And you know what I mean is on the active roster, and he's actually playing. That's right. Dez Bryant. I mean, I loved as but Come on, man right until it's Hollywood. Brown, who's already you know, chirp, and he's in his third year. Great title. Great tight and he is not playing with you. He's not playing in general. Yes, but other than that. Who's scared the hell out of you. Nobody. Is it other in Lamar, right? And so you're right. It's part of it is this is personnel, and I think that's maybe a an Ozzie Newsome retirement factor. You know, as he was great at what he did, and we maybe doesn't get enough credit. He should Because I was the museum was great building teams and they're they're dealing with some things. They're they're they're not easy to solve. In the short term. Let me ask you this. You know this is a theoretical but I think it will. It'll take us into your mind, obviously, which would paint a new interesting pictures to how Um, you truly perceive the strengths of John horrible. Let's say, Let's say you're starting a franchise and you have access to every coach. All right, and you can hire any coach you want. Wow! Fumble by the Steelers on the kick to the Ravens. Get that at the 10. They've been dead. This is sloppy. Tell me, the Ravens just had like a 3rd and 20. They ran for five yards. Obviously going nowhere. They punted and you're thinking Here we go. The steel was gonna slice him up. They punted. Steelers fumbled, Ravens recover. Let's see what There's no penalty not to straight up fumble, and the Ravens are knocking on the door. They're writing about the 10, so they score because the steel has missed the extra point. Sloppy is it's been they score Touchdown kick the P A. T. The Ravens are up by a point campaign. Yeah, that's right, and especially on a Wednesday afternoon game, nobody and on this field Um, I would garner to say, has ever played a Wednesday afternoon way. But I've got a challenge on that college bowl game. True a professional, very professional professional Wednesday after that game, and I would bet even if they had, it's probably in college. It Z less than 5%. No, I don't disagree. Maybe the Bahama bold or something else right there watching I got you. So let me just finish my thought about that. Really My question to you if you're starting a franchise, and you honestly had access to every single coach right now in the NFL, or I, even if you want to incorporate a few college, prominent people were like, where would horrible rank on the list of desire? You know the desired list to bring him in to be the front man, and to be the engine behind this, this new franchise? Yeah, he'd be up there, but I don't know if if he's in the top five Um Because I really like John Hall ball, but he's not. He's not innovative. You know what I mean? Like you look at Sean Payton and he has this innovative offensive mind. Bill Belichick is the is the master of the details. We talked about this all the time, right? That's why his team's You're so prepared and Situational football. They're always going to win. Mike Tomlin is it is a great motivator and let's not forget. He also has a bigger hand and defense than people want to give him credit for and look where they are. You know right now and so. He'd be there. Maybe he's top. Maybe he is top five. But there'll be a few others that I'd go before him. Yeah, I would agree. Um, you know, he he might be on the fringe. He might be five or four for me. I mean, I'd probably throw Carol although if you want to throw a joy I know Pete's very youthful but he still you know you are what you are aged wise. No ballistics, the master. I would take a look at McVeigh's Well, look at China Hand with San Francisco. What he what shadow hands done with all those injuries and the cove it and and everything. To still have a representative product is amazing. I think Shanahan's terrific point. He's just got to do it because you had to do it a few more years. You know that. You know what I mean. I agree with you 100% again. We talked about this yesterday. On. Don't even think about him is like a coach of the year candidate, but he kind of is, you know, given where the injuries that they've had, I mean, is it least four stars not just like starters, but stars. They've lost and they still are winning games, including rivalry games against the Rams. We saw last weekend. He s so he's probably not gonna win it, but you gotta at least give him some credit. For how he's held the team together. I'll give you another name. And quite frankly, this is a name that I might even pick ahead of horrible and it's a name that does not get the respect and the mention that it should You want to take a guess Who's this? Grable. Yeah, yeah, fable because he's he's got a resiliency to him. Not only that he knows the rules like Annabella Chicken matter like The guy's like a freak show stuff. Yeah, but it did end of the day. He's like Kyle Shanahan to me. He's got to do it A couple more years like he's gotta have sustained success. He can't have, you know, Two years of Of really good football and get to the postseason and then fall off. And when five games you know what I mean. So it Z all about consistency and the one thing that you got to give John Hardball credit for That the Ravens are consistently viable even even even when you look at the roster you're like like we like we're looking right now and saying, All right, who scares you Well and take. Let's be honest. He want a championship. With your flak. Oh, great point. What a championship with Brady or painting or Russell Wilson or Pat Mahomes trying Flacco, and they had a damn. It offers a coordinator change in the middle of season. Remember that it was Jim Caldwell took over the office coordinator in the middle of the season. That's right. And they it was the right move. You know, it was. It wasn't like We're making the changes to make a change is like we're making a change because we need to make a change. And it changed the way that they finished that season. It empowered. Um Joe Flacco, even though he wasn't it wasn't him. The catalyst was very rice. It wasn't It wasn't Joe Flacco. Um, but it empowered him to bet on himself on Gwen, the Super Bowl and he got a big deal out of it. That's what hamper them for a couple years, But now they're back..

"Right? Take the Ravens at 10.5. Same game teaser is my favorite way of playing this game. Take Baltimore up to 16.5. And take the over down to 35 a half and that the over Everyone's expecting this to be a really low scoring game. It could be because RG three It could be. I just think, And I think Tim Ben's made some good points. It might be a tight football game until the fourth quarter, and then we see some last second. You know, some attrition, some injuries. Some guy's getting tired. Big plays late. And we see big plays late and we see opportunities for stealer. Big plays down the field, and maybe they're up by three and they wind up winning by 10, okay? So that to me is how I think it goes. And I think the 10 point win, and I think the hook burns everybody who bet the game late burns them. So I would be very concerned with how much money that has come in here on the Steelers, and yet the books are not going up up up with the number. They have been very hesitant to get off a 10. They've been on 10 for a while now, and they're just now going to 10.5. Because I think that they know what this game's gonna look like. Pittsburgh fans of your really hold their feet to the fire. I think they know what this game's gonna look like. And I think that they know they're going to be in for a dogfight today. I don't care who it is. It's the Ravens. It's John Harbaugh. They find NFL players. They're paying their players. All right. These are not Are they gonna win the game? No, I don't think the Ravens win the game. But I do think there's too much value not to throw something on the plus 4 50. There's just too much value and it could very well become a blowout. Okay, if very could I'm not saying you can't But that's gambling predictions. It's 2020 weird things happen. No crowd and RG three is the same age. As Taysom Hill. Did you know that? I didn't know that until about an hour ago, R G three is the same age as Taysom Hill. So Could he have a big game today? Yeah. Have we seen vintage r g three recently? No. But there was a time when people thought this guy was a franchise quarterback, right? Could he might he? What about Dez Bryant? What if Dez Bryant lights? This deal might think that but whatever happened, it happens. What if Dez lights? The team on fire. What it does Bryant is just outstanding. I mean, just like completely and totally outstanding. Then what? Look, I want to know what dead get over tuna catches whatever it does. It's like five for like a 1 50 just like a monster game today. Could have happened is the Hail Mary? Yeah, kind of But the Ravens Might need that. And they might get that because the Eagles got that. And with my plus 16 I'm also banking on a backdoor possibility. Model banking on the potential you know down by 20 points. It's 42 20. It's the fourth quarter. The game's already decided in our G three just because the Steelers play soft and they don't care. They just allow a backdoor touchdown and they win the game. 40 2 27. Right or 40 40? Yeah, 40 27, right? They get inside that 14. I got 16 16.5 points and playing with I've crossed 10. I've crossed 14 so have cost across two key numbers, which I think are incredibly significant important. To crossing the key numbers, and I mean a real did the same thing I did. I was going back and forth about the same game teaser and I was trying to figure out Do I wanna go up or down Because the original line was 3.5 so If you got it at 10, you're going down to four. Okay? Or you're going down to 3.5. If you got 9.5 you got it earlier. The book was like, not in a half first, but second, you could go ahead and cheese it down to 3.5. Do I like that better? I don't know. Not really. Because this is the exact question I posed to a couple different people. What's more likely okay that it's a 14 point win for the Steelers. Or it's a three point win for the Steelers. And, Ah, lot of you were saying, You know what? You know, It's possible that it could be a three point victory here. It's possible. I mean, aerials prediction is 17 13. That's her prediction, All right. So she thinks low scoring. Four point victory. So if it's a four point victory. Well, now you're talking about your keys. Er, you got a half a point to play with their okay. You've teased it down to 3.5. You got a half a point to cover that So wouldn't you wouldn't feel better. Wouldn't it be easier just to give yourself 16 points? Go the other way and say Look at you could win by four or five or 6789 10 11 12 13 14 15. 16 we get 16.5 You see my point, So that's why I think going the other way on. That is a better bet. Because if you do think it's going to be below the 10. By crossing 10 and crossing 14. I think you're giving herself more of an opportunity to catch the teaser. Then if you're getting down to the point where you need Pittsburgh to win by more than 3.5 Do you think they win by more than 3.5? I think they went by 10. So I think the tent half point line. Give us the Ravens Plus 10.5 Take the Ravens. Plus 10.5. I prefer the teaser, however, and that's where the bed I have made my money. It's on the same game Teaser. I also like RG 3/1 70 now, Fanjuls 1 68. So the numbers going down. I'm going against that trend. I'm going over. I think RG three throws the football. I think he gets to 200 yards passing today. And then on the other side, I think Deante Johnson's gonna have a big game here catching the football. I think a lot of attention is gonna be paid to the two big weapons and Claypool and In Juju Smith, sister and I'm going with the third option with Deonte Johnson over 57 a half yards receiving for him. That number moved up to 16.5, but I got 7.5. The two profits going here today for this game, so I've got a lot to watch. I'm excited to watch. I'm excited to see where this game goes. This game kicks off here in about 10 minutes. It's a really weird day. It's not normal. We're watching NBC in the middle of the afternoon for NFL Football. Ravens.

That's weird, even for 2020. And then like when I say weird is good. This is good. This is definitely good. And what makes you better is we're gonna see Bob Griffin. God said, If you're gonna have a Wednesday game in the middle of the day in the middle of the wake, man, lean into it, lean the hell into it. Let Bob Griffin spin it. And let him throw it to Dez Bryant. Can't wait. And it's a really important game. Ravens have to have it.

"All right, So I'm being told that Ryan Clark is going to be a couple of minutes. We'll have him in just a few, So I think I want to make this point again. The game is being played today. We got confirmation of that in the last half hour. Steelers Ravens 3 45 3 40 Excuse me today and a game that was originally scheduled to be played last Thursday. Then it became Sunday. Now it's going to be this afternoon. And is the situation perfect? Of course not. Of course not. Will it be the most competitive game or the prettiest watch that we've ever seen? Probably not. I don't know what to expect their rivals and the circumstances are ridiculous. In fact, they saw great tweet. I'd love to give credit where it was due was just someone on my timeline. I forget who when I didn't write it down, And then I got sidetracked by the LeBron stuff. So I apologize that I can't give credit words do but someone did Tweet RG three. Throwing a touchdown to Dez Bryant on a Wednesday would be the most 2020 thing that could possibly happen in sports, and I think that's about right. RG three is going to be the quarterback for the Ravens today. There's Bryant is suited up for Baltimore, and they are playing on a window say it's just the second Wednesday game in the Super Bowl era. The first one was scheduled around the Democratic National Convention. This one is being scheduled because of a pandemic, So they're going to play the game today, and I'm becoming a little frustrated again. I consider myself I pride myself, in fact and in industry and an era filled with closed minded people, which is to say people who Just have their own opinions, and they are rigid about them. And they will not listen to any contrary thought. I pride myself on being an open minded person. But for the life of me, I cannot understand the people who were saying, Oh, just cancel it. I think the games they're starting that they're having trouble. Some might get canceled. They won't be able to play everything. This. That and the other. Just cancel it. Just stop playing until we can come out the other side of this and I really don't get it. Look, I tried to view everything through the prism of who is being helped. And who's being harmed. What is the benefit? What is the prophet? What is the loss? What is the benefit? What is that? What is the gain? So I don't see anyone who benefits from them stopping There should be one hard fast rule in this and one only And that is, is anyone's health or safety being jeopardized. And if the answer to that question is no If no one is perceptibly less safe through the pandemic, and again, everyone who wanted to opt out had the right to do so. And I presume did So long as the safety and health of people it up being jeopardized for the life of me. I don't understand the people who seem to have formed a cottage industry out of saying they should just stop playing. I don't get it. And I don't want to cast aspersions, but I think at least part of it comes from just a place of crankiness. I am unhappy, so I want others to be unhappy. I'm gonna voice my unhappiness and in ways that I know we're going to make other people aggravated. Again, and I don't mean to cast with a bad a broad brush here. Maybe you have a completely legitimate reason. I'd love to hear it from you. You can tweet at me Use the hashtag greening with the one If you genuinely believe they should just stop playing, and you have a reason beyond. I'm not happy with it. I'd like to hear what it is. Because otherwise I think what they've done is Herculean. I think what they've done is extraordinary. Putting on a football season in a pandemic. And after today, they will have played every game on the schedule. It's not a single game that was supposed to be played. That will not have been on with three quarters the way to the end. If someone had said at the beginning they would get here. I would have told you you were nuts. They'll never do that. So when you think about the extraordinary sacrifice that has been made by so many people to get us to this place, I sit in all and applaud it. And for the life of me don't understand the people who don't want to see it continue. All right. One of the people who I know is happy to see continuous my friend Ryan Clark, who joins me on the shell. Pennzoil Performance line. Shelvey Power Nitro, plus Premium Gas R C. It is official. The game is on today, Steelers Ravens, and so let's look at it this way. The fact that it's a rivalry game. The fact that there was so much at stake for the Ravens, who are on the outside of the playoff picture looking in The fact that these teams know each other as well as they do, and the fact that the circumstances have been so ridiculous that everyone is thrown completely off their regular routine. Should those give anyone any hope that the undermanned Ravens will be able to make this a competitive game today against on beating Pittsburgh? Yeah, you actually should have have a little hope. When you look at what the Pittsburgh Steelers do Well, it Z move the ball on the outside with the wide receivers. Ostensibly, they're still tighten the secondary. If you're the Baltimore Ravens, If you think about Gus Edwards and his Russian attack against the Steelers last year, in the very last game, he rushed for over 100 Yards, RG three was able to rush Well, that sounds like they could keep the ball away. They can move the ball on the ground and do their best to keep this game tight and hope that you could spring Ah, big play at sometimes, whether defensively or offensively like it's it's still An NFL team, and we've seen very good teams are good teams lose too bad teams before..

But no we can harness the of of companies with fewer than three thousand people to do amazing great things and look. Your cmo is at the south pole and yes. We absolutely are playing a huge role in ensuring that we do everything we can to leave this world a better place. You can quite literally say the team going to the ends of the world to help you got it now. You also mentioned something. We were talking earlier off air that you had done this amazing thing around this cock cares program you sit up and apparently i'd love to get some insight you said you kept your cafe open to provide meals for like a looking in first responders. Tell us a bit about that. Yes so first of all. It's not my call about cares. I come. I live on the this is this is. I'm taking advantage of giants. Literal giants have been part of this community for twenty years of conflict in blessed to be part of it were historic. it was more of a Tinton falls approach with complex cares and now global and We had employees gent. Actually create digital masks. Like digital digitized masks. Distribute them when masks and on shorts. But you weren't available. And then they're immediately employees to started to send this guy money so he could create these masks for first responders and From from that we when we went to Our people weren't coming into our larger facilities in new jersey for for several months. We actually kept that cafeteria and just redeployed the the great talent and provided food to a local hospital to make sure that the first responders there were being cared for as well as a local domestic violence shelter in in in one area and the reason for domestic violence so important as people are sheltering in place very nervous very concerned and we need to talk about this more especially with children not going to school and and home and staying at home. The increase in domestic violence domestic abuse has is catastrophic. So our importance of supporting. Those shelters are key so we did provide the food and just meals. You know from time to time kept the cafeteria open forbid a time. That is important when there wasn't anybody coming into our large headquarters and did something nice for the community and you know it's a pretty humble culture so it's not a pat ourselves on the back it's the right thing to do and it's what happens when there's a crisis and we're just solving problems in not asking permission. I think it's an amazing initiative. And i'm sure that a number of organizations even now at the stage in the journey going to look to this he this conversation thing.

The best one is college on in the world mount holyoke and then went to graduate school at the university of texas at austin. And you can't have two very very different environments than those to learn a lot on both in both of those environments But the biggest thing that propelled me to go into a point or hr personnel or whatever it was was actually a thought that i wanted to be an art therapist and i went into an internship in art therapy between in undergrad and i absolutely hated it. I hated everything about it. I was at a psychiatric institute. Saint elizabeth psychiatric institute. And there wasn't one thing. I liked about this except that the institute was going through a transition from a federally run institute to run under dc and that now fast forward thirty years is called a restructuring. But i didn't know what that was. But i do know that because there was a huge amount of disruption between the doctors and the therapists. I don't think the the patients were as aware of it. And i was way more interested in that disruption and how that was impacting the operations than i was the actual art therapy scan tastic. It's unbelievable. I just knew i didn't wanna do that And that was a catalyst in. So i think the way i got into. Hr was From the from an internship that i absolutely hated and from there i went in gum nba.

"I think when I look at these things, there's no such thing as free lunch for anybody and if if you're investing your time and effort resources, there's a cost that what you're asking your client to do is make the similar investment on their pot without necessarily putting money on the table, but it's still resource on cost an investment in time. Today pardon and I think that's a very great way to describe it actually because. I think a lot of people as you said, when they see something for free that embassy the value or the investment. But if you give it a decent term and certainly sensible business focused term like window fee that they've got to make a conscious effort in a conscious decision to invest on their part with human beings and from the capital. Cost of the. Our and other things. And be similarly invested in the outcome I think it's a great initiative and I actually, I, wish I had a t shirt with on it because it's one of those things where it's such a catchy phrase that is a great compensation stutter imagined that I can I can visualize you because walking in the room gang give me the Whiteboard Malcolm, GonNa write something out wind no fee. What does that mean in the whole room would sit up and pay attention. So I think it's a great campaign and I thank you for giving site in the background to that because it's often the so much detail in history to these things that help shape them that. It helps us understand better. What? Where's it now? Yes that's what I was getting a let me try and answer the rest of the actual original question is right. So A. Me and might be or my boss. You know we we all have been traveling like crazy for the last couple of years going out meeting customer executives, understanding their paying points understanding. The challenges and what we find when I'm talking to various customer executives what I find is. Almost every CIO are there is trying to do some sort of a rationalization. Trying to manage costs, they're trying to improve on efficiencies They just are unable to do it internally even if they wanted to because their skills are perhaps depleted, right are are stressed, and now it is on the mainframe side as there's a challenge bringing new people into the market, which is another thing working on but customers see that bane. And? Even if they have skills, they are often specialized in certain areas and they are they don't have. the the bandwidth to stretch beyond and help with these types of conversions on their own. So so when we talk to them. Every every one. Almost every CIO is interested in getting. Some sort of assistance specially if there are no strings attached head. Charges, services fees. Incorrect or in areas doesn't matter. Right. So everybody is interested in getting that resource assistance they could. They could. And we come in that's where we come in and how done with that. So the the way it works Dez is just very simple. We sit down with the customers the right people in their side Their objectives and I was at skin striven as A. Australian as just efficiency they're looking for whore maybe they ended up with this whole suite of tools from multiple vendors because they went through a series of acquisitions and mergers or dime, which is actually the most common scenario you find out there. So we sit down and try to figure out well, if he were to do this. What kind of savings would realize from a licensing fee perspective from the skills that they would have to have in house from that perspective And we reap together plan Do Doors. Objectives. We agree. On timelines. We agree on features functionality, we agree on performance expectations. that they're gonNA end up with after the conversions. And then once we have that all laid out that's when. My boss opens his wallet and we lay down. Our resources right I mean I would deem the sources that are constantly out there with customers doing just what I spoke about. we have a suite of automated conversion tools that we have developed. these are trudy advanced. And Pretty, robust tools. That have gone through the engineering rigor. We use these automated conversion tools. And a good number of conversions do. The tools can actually carry about eighty ninety percent of of the way with the conversion and the remaining ten percent is in anything that has been highly customized. Are you do need a pair of? Pants and I`ts to double check the work. So we with the tools, we also many MI's the risk of I, that would. Be introduced should you try and do this whole thing manually? Okay You must have some amazing anecdotes. You could share examples okay. Studies or what we want to phrase it with regard to some of the clients you've probably got name them but. I. Wonder if you could share some examples of some of the the the project is you've done of light to sort of highlight how these run. Absolutely, there's. Of course I'm going to stay away from naming any of these but these are all you know. Real things we we are. We are generating a lot of interest in the field. I can say that lots of customers have taken us taken us up on this and you know, why would you not? So let me take an example of a large. You know banking yet in in the United States I've been visiting their site quite a bit I, and so they are pretty close to me to my heart, their executives so they decided to rationalize. Are Two. broadcom products. We started this journey I'd say about eighteen to twenty months ago with these people. they initially chose to rationalize in the areas of fighting operations and application development. When they saw the way, it was being run the. They were able to see because we were there. We were not just doing the conversion throwing it over the wall took it all the way to get it all in production trained their teams specially on optimization develop inside on how to work with what we have just migrated them over to. The they were pretty happy and they came back It's not us going and selling them. They came back. And they said, well, you know this this is good. Hit are a few additional areas can you guys help us there? So we are in the process of picking up three additional areas. where, we're similar rationalization is in progress. I can run through a number of similar examples Another one I'd like to just touch on briefly is as A. There's a large About one hundred, billion dollar Healthcare Services Company. and they're looking to improve on their application development and life cycle management capabilities as they tried to expand their own business. I mean these days if you look at, you know if since I'm on the example of healthcare much every insurance company what used to be a an insurance healthcare insurance provider..
Lamar Jackson seems to welcome Ravens potentially signing Dez Bryant
"Dez Bryant Free Agent Wide Receiver reportedly in the Baltimore area for a workout with the Ravens Lamar Jackson was asked of a possible playing with three time Pro Bowler we've got a lot of great receivers in the team right now it's up the phenomenon but seeing desperate on instagram stuff like that running his routes competing against quarterback he's looking pretty good on social media if the. Front Office Lights, and we'll have to see when he gets you Brian has made it clear intrigued by the possibility of playing with Lamar Jackson quite the fall from grace from Desmond. What star he was he's thirty one years of age. Where do you think I'm GonNa come back with the Ravens for Dez Bryant I you know I think the issue with Dez has always been. When he goes outside the system, I mean, remember this is a guy that you know the cowboys wanted to take a pay cut to let's go back. Remember I think he was making sixteen million. I could have the numbers com wrong but it's in that area and he was clearly not playing to that level. He didn't have any bursts at the top of the route. He didn't separate his hands where we're really inconsistent, which is an indication of players, loosener legs he. Didn't he's not a guy who's to line up at multiple positions and still function really well because he needs to have a kind of like he needs to be a one place he needs to have his routes. He's not as a thinker of the of the game as he plays. You know he's a slower processing player. So for me learning a new offense with this guy, you know he's worth putting on the team from an executive standpoint if I signed Dez Bryant. And he's not my starting extra my starting see what am I getting out of them so okay, let's go through it. So if I sign them to say a minimum deal, two, million dollars. So I'm on the hook for a million bucks. Okay. If he makes the team on the Saturday of the before the opening game I guarantee salary for a year I got no flexibility there. Right. He can't help me at all in the kicking game. So unless he starting playing in the three receivers set, you know then he's not going to be active. So now I'm paying millions of dollars for a guy that I'm not gonNa have active now if he can. And he's GonNa make a big difference to my team. You know we drafted two receivers one in the third one in the six you know. So those two guys gotta take a back seat. They're cheaper labor force like none of this adds up like if you told me, you want sign Antonio Brown and you WanNa take on the game suspension young. Okay. Because I promise you Antonio Brown walks onto the field. There is nobody on Baltimore steam as good as they think they are at receiver and they have good receivers. There's nobody on that football team as good as Antonio Brown but he's the best player he's the best receiver on the team, but if Dez Bryant walks in. You know is he better than Hollywood? Brown no is see better. The Miles Birkett are Chris more or Willie snead. You know they drafted the dump Rene Texas they drafted the poor kid in the sixth round. So they got two young kids that they drafted like, where does he fit and then I I'm exposed at a million like these are all things like this is called second. Order thinking like it's one thing the media makes this big deal with says, bright. Well, you know does Bryant. Five years ago was a good player does Brian today may not be a good player just because he's a named certainly has from the past that's a different story as to how could translate this season

Now in K Next 10 70 salesmen, Shaw, he's in sky free, Chris. It seems like we see fires up here every year. Part of the reason why these fires were so hard to put down even when the winds are light like they are today is because the hills are so steep and fires were so effective at burning uphill, especially whether aided with the really thick brush. Which we see in the Angeles National Forest. That's what we're seeing today. So ah, Lot of spoke with the smokers kind of sitting in San Gabriel Candy, which really shows you just how light the winds are One fortunate thing for firefighters, though, is that the forest damn.

Booth at hymns, and we kind of pitched and Marcus up and Simpson. Again, we've had so many discussions customers they're they're they're volunteering their time, their resources to come in and help us right suspects what are the requirements? What are the work streams? How does the data move? How would I like to see it and then they're they're really chomping at the bit for this kind of transformational solution to be able to within their system. I welcome to conversations with Dez on your host Dad's garage field today I have the privilege of being joined in the studio by crews. Now, Rudd is the general manager of a health care solution that at business roads being on the show before. Thanks for making time to catch up with me and welcome back on the time. It's good to be with you again does. So you have been on the show floor and welcome back and will know you for a number reasons both. You're on the show exactly one year ago, which is uncanny. But also we've caught on camera number of times says great catch up with you and I, really appreciate making time. I wanted to just quickly outline what we're going to cover today and I'd like to dive straight in if that's okay. That'd be perfect. So what are to chat about a couple of key things that we're getting a lot of attention and the health guests by particularly five G. and how that relates to healthcare. So I was GONNA ask it gives us a thirty thousand foot. Foot view of the overall industry and where it's at currently that I wanted to talk about some of the success stories you've had the likes of the Connected Ambulance I'm fascinated by that. For a number of reasons which will get into in particularly the combination of I net and five gene Internet of medical things that goes into that, and then I wanted to talk about the whole topic of digital health technology and broad spectrum. That's they are a couple of key things on a dive into and then wanted to close the whole patient experience because I'm always. Interested. In that sort of you know what's in it for me for the listeners know it's great to hear about the technology they love hearing about what you've brought crews doing your team. They're always fascinated about eight hundred businesses doing but the end of the day it comes down to what's in it for me so I run I wonder if we could kickoff with maybe Firstly just five G. and particularly in the context of healthcare could you maybe give us a brief thirty thousand foot point of view industry update on what's happening the big moving things and what should people know about with regard to what you're doing in healthcare and five G. AT business? Does. Yes. Thank you for the introduction and it's so good to be with you again and yes, there's been it seems like everywhere we turn the media, the industry, the analyst obviously, our customers are very interested in what's going on in the five G. Area, and that's for good reason five G. Will Shift the paradigm for many industries including healthcare and it's really accelerating the experiences into a future today seems a bit like science fiction. we've seen the rise of an ecosystem of services and products aimed to change the customer experience and leveraging the five G. powerful connectivity platform to transform how those services are consumed, and really it's becoming more more about the experience that Fauji can't deliver versus just a speed. So when you love, it's not only the speed, but the latency and jitter and the number of access points that we can connect to the podgy platform they're really does. A really big white space for innovation and transformation healthcare. So some of the work we're doing their last year, we announced our relationship with Russia. As the first five G. Standards, base hospitals, hospital ignited states a few weeks later before Hinz last year, we announced our work with the toss and the work they're doing with hospice as it relates to space a a RV are and really the distractive parity therapy work they've done they've done that and that's that costs firm. But we think about five G. at a higher level. We think about a multiple areas of focus and it starts with things like education and training at moves into three D three deportees, ation collaboration. It moves into cognitive behavioral therapy as I mentioned earlier, the work with toss and then moves into other specific subsets of that such as remote robotic surgeries to name a few and even moving large file images and videos through the hospital wherever, whenever needed, and so a drill deeper into the work and the and the and the work we're doing with rush, and that's one where rush is actually using the foggy connectivity platform to be able to move large images and. Files throughout their system. So think of large M. R. I. Impact Images. If you're a member, does you attended our at and T. Business Summit in our in our Pod, we had a demo of a one GIG file. It was being downloaded on the four G. Network, which took almost five minutes and then compared to the one on the five G. Network, which took about eleven seconds. So you can already is see very quickly with the speed of the of the connectivity, how by moving that file where and when needed, you can begin beginning the diagnosis. You could map that that image to maybe ten thousand other images to compare to highlight different areas of focus for the physician. Before they even scan and look at the file as well as being able to move it to and from where necessary before even the four G. can download. So the the work we're doing there is revolutionary and we're seeing a lot of valiant traction in that particular use case. As, it relates to toss a lot of the work be done with distract therapy and focused on the end of life experience. But this particular use case really does work with pediatrics or even chronic pain management, and the idea here is that you're decoupling.

They rang the next day and said my God I. Just saw it with the Cleveland Button. They had sent their entire workforce home they didn't even leave their techies in the office and then a couple of days later.

It's run at a types and even in two thousand and twenty right. And so he ring says what do we do and said well I can't believe doing anyway, but within twenty four hours they had migrated to you'll platform, and the database was backed up protected, and they had done a full recovery to a training and test site and a full recovery to development and integration site, which was interesting, because he said it was just literally five minute exercise to do that as opposed to die prices getting that grandfather father son, rebuild the archive, and so Naro needed to get them out of trouble of not having to. To send somebody back to the potential to to have slope out tights, which I'm sure it was just a logistic logistical nightmare that some also gave them outcome that they realize it now I've got cloud I. Can you do a cloud to cloud recovery? As it were, and have a copy of my training and a cloud to cloud recovery to then make a copy of able to my integration development team and is like we've never been able to do that before it's just a dream.

One Data Protection Person In the Organization of Twentieth, thirty thousand stuff could never keep up with one hundred thousand hackers, one, hundred, thousand, a ransomware, people in these cybersecurity, and you know hackers and ransomware business. They're people who treat. That as a profession than they are large organizations that officially in the business of. Getting ransomware attacks in place in making millions from it, and I had a great anecdote the other day where someone said I think it was actually at one of live coffee Tolkha livestream with the team that I host where one of the teams said something to the fact that ransomware people now site professional that they actually beat up competing ransomware attack. Saying look. If you get paid, make sure you give them the keys and let them restore the data if you've done. Done then other people realize that if they pay the not gonna the day, Tobacco's like hanging. Let me think this through. You got competing ransomware hackers forcing other rents why people to make sure that if they get paid the rent somewhere money that they do give the keys and let still the data because at trains people that if you pay you, get your data back so that professional criminals at the instagram. This is just the mind boggling thing of the hood. But phenomenal anecdote there someone doing a proof of concept and then also being out to be restored during a ransomware incident. I think that's that's almost the the penultimate example of kind of where we're at. Isn't it and I? Guess that's what I. Come to wrap up on his in the next twelve to eighteen months. The world's going to be going through yet. Another massive transition we were out with the pandemic with covid nineteen, coming at us at a rush without a situation.

Going to be higher that some some companies going to go back into the office, others are going to do a half and half, and then some organizations that just not bothering good back to the office at all working remotely so this must create a whole plethora of of challenging you scenarios a not just meeting human beings that moving infrastructure back creding these hybrid.

"See exactly how much tampering is going on in your environment helped pass the next compliance audit or God, forbid if you're in the middle of an incident response at least able to protect the integrity of the investigation and perhaps. If, you're lucky enough to have chain kit before the incident occurred. You've got some fantastically complete authentic artifacts now to investigate an rapidly accelerate the pace of your investigation response. Wow, I, remember the whole confidentiality integrity availability message in and sort of a member turning up at A. Lecture wants at high school and sitting there going Oh my God. They're going to tell us what the CIA. The Americans do. But as a math professor, who had done a computer science degree and I think he came from A. Background PREMIX and one of the first things he did was beat this into us. Even though we are programming on the likes of Apple Too easel or commodore pet computers, and it was inches I remember getting a first couple jobs, and like I was just. This is one of the first things is to put on the tables I can't how wig I'd apply the people like what and if they hadn't been through that rigor as pummeling in the brain of this is so important. It was so foreign to the Meisters beat my head against the wall going. How do you not know this and they're like? How do you know this right and I'm like well very lucky, a great dude who? Told me this at high school that Tom. I guess one of the things that I would like to give it to. Now. It's kind of be the next because you position this whole concept very clearly as to the risk in the business need business challenge and the technology approach. You've taken to this and there's no secret of the the impact potentially that could happen as as your website says die. Be The next front page headline, but. Where to from here as far as next, and you talked about logs, I think have described since audit trails. And I think you described them sort so the lifeblood of Saban offense that most organizations have logs. And, I think there's been a big change in that space as well right, and when we think about the shift from Monolithic Systems to virtualization to cloud, and then containers with this doctor or others, we've had the jails and virtualization, and certainly L. pause in the mainframe world for decades, but I think that gone to a whole new level now that we had anticipated where Micra service a set of. non-permanent environments that are sort of driven by API. Economies where service requests gets made, something gets. It could be a container business logic. It runs him business logic. Get access to data. It produces some longing somewhere. The day of having a log fall several Sicelo servers kind of. And, in many cases I see, develop as with a re factoring code and. Don't need the legs. I put into a database transaction report. And I said this she going will yeah, but that's okay. But what about your single source of truth on on what actually happened like? What if I changed the database to say? Something else happened like. Where to from here as far as that of the next steps, because one of the things I love people do how to do is. Take away some of these things that you're talking about an almost. Put them into actionable takeaways. Compensation, from boardroom down as to we only have logs. What do we need to do to sort of to change the way we approach us, and if logs of our last line of defense from security risks and side offense, what what does that actually mean, and how do we change the way we behave around this? What are your thoughts on the next east? It's where are we going? And what are some of the big things that are going to be changing this landscape? Say to keep paths or one product roadmap, which could spend endless time on, but I'll just summarize, and then, of course, the ecosystems which are key. On the roadmap front, it's clear that we we have the potential to take for example, the very popular zero trust concept. And extended far beyond that initial use cases today I. Love Trust you know it. Is is the old Reagan Trust, but verify reports it in the proper order, verify before trust, and that's done very very well, clearly for managing devices particularly in the covert era, the variety of unsecured devices using to access regulated information that should be secure. You know always verify the device. Verify the identity. That's consuming the device at any given time and verify or create a customized sort of micro targeted network segment just between the user, the device and the actual back end resources requesting. But Trust version. One of the first generation stops there and again I have an inquisitive mind, so my mind immediately goes to okay. Got To verify tunnel from my device to this back end resource. Let's say it's my email. Let's say it's my payroll database. Let's say it's my marketing data. Why am I trusting that back-end? Has had back in gone through to know that the security certificate that its using is an authentic one that's validating Mir has been spoofed. The host hasn't been compromised by numerous known vulnerabilities that the database itself just databases before the transaction log hasn't been tampered with by DB. The got bribed by organized crime. So these are all sorts of questions that need to continue zero trust conversation that we need to continue to act to ask, there is actually whole categories of forester and John Kinderg- in Dr Chase.

UK abandons contact-tracing app for Apple and Google model
"Got Surprising message on twitter on Thursday. Dez said he had just listened to Thursday's Moco West Ken, the one that had me talking about the tiny number of smallest countries that had gone with the Apple Google Api for contact, tracing APPs as well as the problems. Australia had had going a different way. Dez had just listened to that show when he saw this headline from the BBC. UK virus tracing APP switches to Apple Google model. Again maybe not. I? Mean that is what the headline says. But for lines in the article says the government now intends to launch a nap in the autumn. However, it says the product may not involve contact tracing at that point instead, the software may be limited to enabling users to report their symptoms and order a-tast. Baroness Daito harding who heads up the wider test and tracing program will only give the green light to actually deploying the Apple Google technology if she judges it to be fit for purpose, which he does not believe is the case at present. It is possible. This may never happen. The report says tests run with iphone could not tell the difference between contacts who are three feet away versus contacts who are nine feet away. It also says that the at the U K had been testing was good at that distance thing, but battered iphone since apple won't let them under the hood. and. They're still kind of cross about that. Quoting the beep at a downing, street briefing Health Secretary Matt Hancock suggested the original plan might have worked. Had it not been for Apple's restrictions on Third Party APPS use a bluetooth. Apple? Software prevents iphones being used effectively for contact tracing unless you're using apple's own technology. He said our APP won't work. Because Apple won't change that system and their APP can't measure distance well enough to a standard that we are satisfied with. What matters is what works? What works will save lives? So the UK will use the Apple Google API or it won't. And thanks again. For the head top on that report.

Frustrated with fallout from his weekend gathering, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott clarifies, says fewer than 10 people were at house
"Back to us. Dak Prescott held a social gathering over the weekend. No social gatherings right now. I don't care you know if you it under ten overs over ten just Nixon. Everyone else is eating the poop right now. You do too Mr quarterback anyway. He held a party. And Zeke Elliott was also there and Dacca's upset because he thinks it's been blown out of proportion by the media and by idiots like me saying it wasn't more than ten people it wasn't out of control it wasn't a ranger But Steven Jones says Tuesday in an interview with the fan in Dallas that he talked to both Prescott and Elliott about not conducting gatherings while most of the country remains under quarantine. Here's what Stephen Jones had to say Blah Blah Blah Blah. And then do press got released a statement. Where do you come down on this March attack? Angry with them furious furious. I think two things Jane slater followed up to report that some of the images that showed the swanky bizarre looking party center was actually a a local restaurant called Nick and Sam's that she's been to and they actually took their own photos of the spread. They sent to Jack on with all these things in general. It's like if if someone were to from a PR angle examine what I did from age. Twenty to twenty eight. It would be a horrific story for the nation to follow along in general. Let's try to stay. Let's just like not get in our own way while the entire country is gripped by the biggest Health Related News. Story of our lifetime and your deck. Prescott and Zeke Elliott hanging around eating lamb wings or whatever it is eating. It's just why this wings when they don't know what was on the menu. I might be right. I have to stop. Lamps brings to stop going to my neighbor's front yard every day at five o'clock and sitting eight feet across from each other here. You're sitting across from each other not having a party inside your house with all having dinner at the same table. He said less than fewer than ten people right. I mean it's hard to keep track of the rules and get a handle on severity when the messages so mixed from layers at the national state and Cable News Levels. Dr Ci Telling People that Hate. Take a swing on tinder if you need to. He basically said it on that podcast. We mentioned if you're if you're willing to take the risk. Go down the Tinder Avenue. She said shoot. Your shot is basically what he said. So it's a dangerous time in the Corinthian because this is kind of a screw it time. Meaning some of my like. I'm sick of this screw. It like I am tired of doing this. I'M GONNA have my friends over. I've been doing this for weeks. It's tired and I WANNA see my girlfriend. Whatever IT MAY BE. It's sort of the screw it period and I think maybe that's what that got into my question. Why is Dak hosting anything? He shouldn't be hosting a heap. That means he has to pay for food and drink and everything. There's like six different people on the cowboys. That should be hosting party. Zeke should be hosting the Marcus. Jalen all of those guys who have been paid I picture. Dak and his front door charging twenty dollars a Solo Cup to come in. He's the last guy who should be hosting. They should be hosting him. It's not the end of the world but it's also west like days after he's out working out with Dez Bryant and everyone's got their arms around each other and at some point. Yeah you're young and you make mistakes again. It's not the end of the world. But you're also like an example for everyone tracking Dak Prescott in the state of Texas and like if it's cool that he's just going out like basically living his life as normally does and other people think that they can't do

"They understand and know when these events are happening we also have a broadcom dot com calendar events calendar where we do host these as well so if you go on broadcom dot com there is an actual event calendar that we have with all of our events that take place And we can definitely make sure if you want to participate on an actual session with you know co hosting with our folks were more than happy to bring you on board. The other thing with the Mainframe Strategic Advisory Council. That's that's something that if anybody is interested especially It is an invitation only type of event however you know again we don't especially if it's a customer of ours. We will definitely make sure that we look into you. Know making sure that we work with you and and including them into that that as well. I'm a big Fan. I I've actually got bookmarked by the Mainframe Academy page. Because the the such a an amazing amount of information that just to get started but I also recently saw a number of great updates coming through the vitality program and one of the things I really loved was right out. Front is a question that just says what's in it me always like it when people realized. I want to know what what I'm going to get out of this and so I did like that. That was a great addition above and beyond outlining the fact that as you said through all the sections is I know this one. That's saying now that this session's coming up for the Winter Spring Period for two thousand twenty and then write this outline what the vitality program is but right in the middle of the page. What's in it for me and I think that's probably speaks volumes to I. Guess the the approach. You're taking that. Is it you you know why people are coming to? You know what they're looking for so yeah absolutely I. I think you're banging on the money there that people should just jump on the broadcom dot com website. And just go through both the Well the two ones we've been talking about specifically the Mainframe Academy and the vitality and then from that does a whole bunch of the material. I wonder if I could ask you one last question before we wrap up there. I mean if you brought I really love what you doing around the advocacy piece That's just a fantastic. Just get so excited about the fact that someone in the organization within broad come in the world who who has this whole customer focus not just from the basic customer service and support and so forth but really understanding what makes a customer tick and a dust. Love the fact you you. You've answered all the questions and challenges around the community and the businesses from on boarding new people or refreshing skill sets and retraining skill.

"Much more fun with a group of who can help each other when. I'm looking for new jobs as it were in my youth I was always. I always found it easy to go for a network of people other than just feeling like an island and So I imagine there's a number of those things I just said just naturally lent lend themselves to making the Jimmy Fund a lot more engaging but also a lot more successful from from a customer point of view What sort of feedback? You're getting with the success stories you've had because I know you've had a number of great success stories. What some of the compensations you having with customs Sound like that when when they go through this program with you either. Putting their hands down through the mainframe academy all finding new people with refresh skills through the vitality residency program. How they adapting to it? What some of the feedback. You're getting from them. The actual customers themselves that are putting people through the program so I mean they are there. They love it. They love the programs they see the value and You know it's it's definitely something and again. It's about that unity in that family that network that they're building the community they will always have with the associate engineer program. They're starting with our own new. Hires that we're bringing on so again having that network in that community that they can always rely back to if they have any questions about mainframe in general or if they have questions about our broadcom products it it's been it's been good. The outcome especially with the Mainframe Academy has been doing very well. We've been getting very good feedback. And if anything they keep sending so. If it wasn't that good they wouldn't be sending more custody our own people through it again. So it's a good thing so far so good success with it more obvious. Success factor than having more bodies into the other side of your challenge around customer advocacy This is something that I've had a lifetime passion for myself and I love the fact that you heading this up. It struck me very early on in my career when I was inside large organizations where there was a bank or whatever and I was the one having to keep the lights on with the tin in the data centers that the type of relationship I had with vendors was often either account management role or support role or maintenance role even a business development type role and I found that you know there was always angle of of you know what do I need to do to keep the account happy and then get out of the way because of the last questions. It seems to me. Now that you've been out of developed amazing new approach to sort of. Have yourself in your team around you inside the organization with finger on the pulse of their their organization and their call business and the technology and systems that that actually support that and then act as an advocate within your organization to ensure that? You're doing everything you possibly can. Whether it's the education piece or I imagine just that whole relationship side with the Organization the Customs. I wonder if you could maybe just give us a little insight into kind of how that came about and how that function works and some of the successes you've had so far around just that driving greater advocacy of the customs cells inside your organization. So I mean the whole Customer Advocacy Organization the you know how it formed and what the main objective of what we were trying to really do is we wanted to bring these programs together to ensure that our customers are getting what they need. Not just when it's time to renew right because you know you hear that time and over and over again You just come to visit when we renew but we want to make sure that we are with them throughout their journey with us so the main objective here is really to build that deeper relationship and provide more value right to our customers as again. They're critical to us. So we're investing morbid in relationships by sharing knowledge through these events right so we don't have seaworld anymore but what we're doing is is the innovation world tours right. We're going straight to our custom. Burs in the regions the mainframe technical exchanges is what I'm responsible for so we're trying to go areas. We we looked at the map where we saw where our customers I mean. This is really thought out. We're really going. You know pretty much where our customers are. But we're bringing our customers to our own development centers development labs so that they can hear more from own Subject matter experts the development engineers themselves and provide input into our products And as well as requirements anything that they to see more of and learn more at especially about roadmaps as to where we're going and then with the global mainframe user groups you know we have more of a pulse on that even more so globally right you know we have about twenty seven plus in a mea and we're building up a little bit further within the US where we have a little bit about ten or so which we're starting to build up even more. So and then the Mainframe Strategic Advisory Council where we're really trying to happen to and build further relationships with their own the the actual senior management You know of our customer base because we want to make sure that they get that input into our strategic direction. It's so important for us to get this feedback. From a practitioner standpoint at the mainframe technical exchanges are global user groups. And letting them hear about what we're trying to do with our products and the road maps and then then you've got the senior management and really working with them and making sure they understand. They have input into our direction in where we're going but again it's pretty much we want to make it easier for customers to get the full value right of these programs. So we're just trying to push and make sure I mean we're hearing Even are the executives from our customer base that when it comes to the Mainframe Strategic Advisory Council we actually unfortunately due to the virus. I don't mean to bring it up but due to the virus we actually were supposed to meet in Prague about a week and a half ago but however it got cancelled right to meet with and we were supposed to meet at least seventeen customers and unfortunately we couldn't so we did it. Virtually you know because we believe that it's so important and we we really want to hear about their challenges and their needs and to ensure that they we- they know that we're hearing them and that they were going to work towards it and then the following year when we do see them again. Mainframes mainframes. Don't stop running right now and needed away. So that's something that we need to continue to make sure that we're moving forward with absolutely and I. I guess it's March Twenty Twenty and as you mentioned the world's being challenged with yet another novel Derivative of the Corona Virus Code Nineteen and so travel is is restricted and people are working from home. But I think this is one of the exciting things from everything that I've seen myself. I had the privilege of being somebody user groups particularly the share events and just something community catch shops and so we had the opportunity to be part of some of the technical exchanges is that it seems to me love that can all be done online and a lot of your training education social service online as well so in twenty twenty it does behoove us to kind of reduce some of that physical travel on and use technology for what it is but the thing that strikes me across all this is just the general sense of thought leadership. I think when I look at other spaces outside the mainframe world when I think about different cloud platforms open source groups whether it's open stack. Oh how do cassandra sparkle just the linings programs? A lot of those are often projects that are run by the actual people themselves so we set them up ourselves. They may have some sort of sponsorship from vendors. What seems to be the case with me watching these come through that you've as an organization seeing this need seeing this gap provided the capability of the platform and obviously the sponsorship funding support. It and put these sites so that you've used the capability in the strength and the depth of knowledge and experience that you have to put these programs in place whether it's the mainframe user groups or the community mentioned or the even the vertical more focused areas around the technical exchanges in the Strategic Advisory Council. Cbo that thought leadership experience in place but then my experience once you get the thing going you step back and let it build a life of its own and help just student and I think the share experience for me more than anything. Recently in Pittsburgh showed me that you were there. You're part of it. You're there as equals and peers all the other folk as opposed to just standing up doing sales pitch and I think that thought leadership has been such a success factor folders. I guess one of the things that I love saying was a mix of everything from developers and designers and hardware-software world through a number of customers who came from a business decision making point of view who had gotten that message. Realize we're coming here to be part of the community we need to be sold to and then they bought it. They bought a big hard curly questions to the table. And and you know whether it's the broadcom's mainframe people whether it's the developers news themselves it was this open periods and I imagine that must have been a Eureka moment when you saw that happening and realized that this thing had not just developed a life but it was really getting some momentum. Exactly what about so I mean. Some of these are being around for a little while made. I know you've had Particularly Technical Exchanges in the Advisory Council When you get something like these going up I mean you must get the number of of these people take some of these things back in board this probably you know. I imagine you've got a high level of demand from organizations asking for how they now participate in that. What sort of reach out? What's the Jenny? Life or an organization saying hey look we despite in in the likes to say the technical exchanges or be part of the Strategic Advisory Council. What sense of the compensation like when when a customer or partner reaches out says. How do we get on board with this? How do we started? Where do we get started so so we do? Have you know again?

"When our customers need us we've also stood up Six command centers as we call them across eighteen business and they are focused on specific areas of what our customers may need. One as an example is focused on delivery to expedite really critical customer. Customer needs. Another one is focused on delivery around in infrastructure capacity and resiliency additions. If you will right we've got a command center. That's focused on Incidents right so as you would imagine there is some business out there that maybe quote unquote running more. Predictably but Most businesses are not running in a predictable way and so the criticality of outages or issues. That are that are happening. Right are to varying degrees of priority so we also have an incident command center as relates to service assurance. And how do we ensure that the most critical services you know stay up and you know the the hottest most most priority issues are being addressed and so we've taken this Triage approach if you will. It is seven by twenty four. I think one of the one of the things I'm experiencing does I don't know if you're experiencing is that the workday never never ends actually right and it is literally did is Every day you know twelve fourteen hours of of of calls how it's done now right And so you know teams are triage around the globe Eighteen businesses so fortunate to serve customers around the globe and we're also fortunate to have associates who live all around the globe right and that adds that adds a level of of complexity quite frankly of global society global unity to what we do and You know we are helping customers not just here in the US helping Employees not just here in the US. But I'm all around the globe and that is that is what we are known for. And so those are some of the examples of Of the things that That we're doing In a in a tireless manner. But what I what I am going to do. A little I'm going to do a little commercial here does for For everyone out there who is experiencing long workdays which I know is the majority of us is You gotta remember to take care of yourself. You know I think the Does you mentioned it earlier about About You know the the exercise things like that. I think this is one area where I will admit to you and our audience that I'm failing if I had a step counter. since Since Mika Struck I would be failing all threshold of of of.

"The number one focused especially in the early days the first week focus on their employees to focus on their safety and a healthier. It's about how do I focus on them? How do I get them the information they need? And how do I enable them to be able to do their job? And this has been a bit of a rolling thunder kind of approach. Every day is different in terms of what is needed and as more countries hit the different phases of where they are with the Pantai back as more states. You know here in the. Us declare different states of emergency. You know go from a shelter in place to stay at home to the various degrees. Hi and welcome to come stations with Dez on your host does Blanchfield net. Today I have the pleasure being joined by an chow now and as the chief executive officer at. At business and welcome to the show. Thanks for taking time to catch up with me. My pleasure happy to be here so no strangers. We've caught up a number of times over the last few years particularly on camera number circumstances at the eighteen business summit. And it's been fantastic to see you in person there and I really appreciate you making to catch up today because I wanted to have a conversation around some of the amazing work you doing. Their business as chief executive officer writing business. You've got such a broad remit but in particular right now with what the world's facing with this whole pandemic and code nineteen. I thought it was a timely of changes to highlight some of the things you're doing within your own organization even some of the challenges you're facing personally and your own need to work from home and then some of the things you're doing with regard to addressing some of the challenges that the customers are facing in the industry as a whole. But how you doing? How's work from home turning up for you? I mean you personally obviously have to go through this journey yourself as well as lead the the the business in the team around you. How's this whole shift of working from home and safe with going to use I fall? Yeah yes it has. It's it's It's it's kind of interesting isn't it? I mean we as a society we as humanity of never found ourselves in this position. And you know from from business perspective. I almost feel like you. My multi decade career which has spanned three decades. Now has almost prepared me personally for this moment as well as As well as my team you know I've spent the last Last three decades Serving customers of different sizes and shapes and in different industries in various roles. And so now at this point of let's face it. We're in a crisis you know this is really all about. How do we ensure that businesses and organizations humanity consumers people you get through this and that we not just survive but we get to a point where we can at one? Point thrive again in terms of work from home. I will have to say that I'm not that great at it. You know I I am not one who is typical to work from home. And so this adjustment for me even on a personal level is Is stretching my Flexibility and my agility in the that. I'm big on relationships as I think you know And so the challenge and the opportunity of figuring out how to build and grow relationship in a mode of crisis Where things are ever dynamic ever. Changing is a challenge that that face especially in the early couple of days we got used to. How does one communicate collaborate effectively? I would say on a very personal level. I think the dynamics even just of all of us being in our home more virtual environments. Or if you're in the office rent a center without all of your resources that you're used to being they're coming upon us to learn what this next normal is day to day. I mean literally every day is different and I think that is something that also drives stress and pressures in today but you know ours is a mission where we are a people business. You know we are all about our employees and our teams and we're all about serving our customers and so This is This is what we were made for us. We were made for the business of communication and connection covert nineteen instead of one of those things where it's once a lifetime for for all of us. I think there was an ancient comment ahead from wool to vet in Britain. And he's come. It was a his generation went to war for us. And all they're asking is that we sit on the couch for few weeks which I thought was interesting. A really did bring home. That whole challenge of won't do we need to do as individuals to change behavior around society and cultural you know mixed to to ensure that yes we asked home and we are social distancing and doing that sort of thing but the flow on challenge of business continuity around keeping the lights on from a technology perspective from a telecommunications perspective from keeping staff morale this really big challenges that organizations are facing now and the interesting thing. In this case. I guess For Chinese that eight hundred thousand nine hundred business sells having to go through it for the very same reasons that every other organization is. I mean you've got a number of different types of business continuity plans in place from just you know scenarios like a fire in the building to these sorts of health crises. What are some of the key things you being through of light yourselves just to go from moving? Humans out of the buildings to putting safeguards in place just to get to the point where you can keep your own lights on. Yeah so as Roy. Our business I'm in. Yeah let me START WITH WITH OUR EMPLOYEES. You know you eighteen business networking of communications and you know the. Us Department of Homeland. Security is being our roles as essential. Because when we think now about the role of connectivity does you know and the role of networking no no longer is this technology. Are these solutions disservices? Nice to have they are they are a must have and if I would even ask our listeners here to pause for a moment and think about what this situation would be like if we didn't have connections if we didn't have continuity if we did not have a communications What would this crisis be like if we were not enabled by technologies to work through it? And so for us. It's really been about our employees for us to make sure that they. Are you know in a in a safe environment? We've had to pivot heavily as many many many many of my customers have had two very heavily virtual environment and that requires that you. We set the right tools we said at the right processes. We've also had to make sure that we're focused on our employees safety and our employees health. Right person foremost we have done various things around the organization in terms of what we provided to our employees around that and so of course we've we've also put in place so you know you call it. And then I think a world calls it social distancing. I don't like social distancing does because I feel that What is it really is? It's physical distancing. I I actually feel that now more than ever. We need social connection In this current environment is making it More difficult but we. At and T. Our role is to make that a social connection that relationship connection business connection even more viable even more critical even more reliable even more scalable. And as I think about the network. You know the network most Most of our listeners. At and T. As a as a networking company. And you know. I I can readily say in fact the very first job that I had thirty years ago working for the company was as a network architect so I can say here now. Almost thirty years later that Our network was built for this And it is operating quite well. I do like the the highlighted that the term social distancing probably doesn't do a very good job of describing what we'd really do which is as you said physical distancing. I wholeheartedly agree with the whole social connectivity thing. I mean I was watching something last night online and and there was a commentator who was saying that one of the biggest fallouts from this is going to be psychological issues because people aren't used to being landlocked in their homes all the way through to the health issues because people are normally get out governor. Walker governor job and Iran and now having to work out in the backyard or in their apartment so some of the the the social and economic flow on this a still to be realized one of the biggest things that keep coming up. The is the general challenge of connective incapacity. And I'm really keen to get your insights on what you could share around when customers. Think about just keeping that connectivity going in the quality of it particularly just around capacity and the ties capacity the organizations need. I guess firstly from eighteen point of view. What sort of measures are put in place to ensure that the network itself has the appropriate capacity and then what sort of things should organizations and particularly accustoms be thinking about with regard to? Do I have the appropriate capacity on on my network connectivity. And this'll services. I have so our network as it's evolved over the years our network is software. Define which means that you know. Our our network is very much suffering able which means that we see surges and that were traffic. We anticipate them. We model them so our core network is under what we would call software defined control as many other areas of the network and what this really enables us to do is rapidly respond to surge as anticipate any security concerns and we can flex to our customers needs wherever we wherever we see them. You know the network is is really purpose built for this and You know when I think about the network and the services and support that we provided is the connectivity. But it's also the the people around that connectivity. We have in my view. The world's best engineers and network architects. Who tirelessly stay ahead of the technology curve here to make sure that our network is scalable reliable Secure Right that. Our customers are connected protected at all times. You know as a society when I think about where we are right now at this point in time with nineteen we have never had this many people working remotely. You know We've never had this kind of broad scale around the globe. A need for additional Dan with We've never had this. Many hospitals preparing for growing needs or school systems right in mass Moving to remote learning it does if I could give you a couple of stats here of some dimensionality to what we're seeing. So if I if I look back at this Monday this Monday for us March twenty third are wireless of voice minutes of use. Were up thirty nine percent compared to an average Monday Our WIFI calling minutes of us were seventy eight percent higher than average Monday if I look at our consumer home business are consumer voice calling up forty five percent and our core network which includes.

Sticking out so that type of trend is continuing to sort of provide more high value type of insights. that sticks out from day to day. Tap operations to read understand okay. How can we help them? Build the right type of Netra calvary showroom will do what type of device more than they should Beth on in the marketing campaigns on these topics inside. So I think it's more going towards automate all this other basic type. Walberg steps you can. So what made the whatever we can So be taught skills to make sure that you have expertise teams in bright decided to focus on the tricky parts. And that's where I think out of solutions here coming in that we bring them type of insights that they should don't spend the focus on whether Oba's cannot fix it maybe future that's the The town we're seeing that they don't have moral basic stuff or getting automated torture different notes or upgrades and all the basics. Things are getting more. And more automated. Which freeze up time for their no smart guys to really think over ninety one loss on a bulky? I wonder if you could just quickly wrap up for us with regard to the whole topic of partnerships. I know there's a lot of focus on enterprise offerings. And and certainly what comes beyond Mobile Brandon as the final question to? You is wonderful if you could maybe just give us a quick summary uncountable position around partnerships. And what's happening in the enterprise space and we see that going in the next year so if I look at what we do in Ericsson is on the we are working through our our customers and they then sell to to the enterprise our go to market modem however in order for us to understand how anti I think we have a lot of partnership with enterprises and we may be for instance. How you run in mind. How you're on your manufacturing plants and coal industry and so forth to understand okay. How can five technologies help this kind of industries in order to be more productive and how they can automate further they are sort of saying activities and I believe that's important for us because in the past we have been so focused on? Let's say consumers right and the normal using a bunch of they every monster extremely made you know wanted to have this kind of capability in. We need to understand. Exactly what are the requirements from this kind of industries in order for them to more? From instance maybe a wide. Line connection to a wireless connection and I believe that has been very useful for us in order to understand how we are. We this lead to sign our products that we make them very secure in order to really take these kind of critical at tasks and where failure is not an option. And it's been a good exit. Feeds GONNA make citing spices because I imagine you're things like autonomous cars and drawings and other things I imagine the enterprises and out looking at things in such different way that they're coming at you with innovations. We haven't even imagined that as that of George jetsons type era stuff that we thought was never gonNA happen like flying cars and now people seeming. Things can be done for five G. that that we probably didn't imagine and I'm sure that can be the case right. Yeah I also saw that. We need to help pay. The price said be successful to make it easier for them. They don't know Mobile Technology. Really Rights as we need to have different kinds of support systems. That seem to understand what's going on and really guide them what actions to take in case something doesn't work properly right so it's the it's also shift. I believe from an operative perspective moving into this kind of technology. I see it's a to Dork even more with okay. How do we prepare our? That's the infrastructure to deploy cloud native and etta questions. How do we prepare our staff? In order to have more quick turnaround on software upgrades doing more continuous integration continuous deployment though software really here operators also have an exciting journey ahead in order to be really prepared for the five core and indeed my mind moguls and as as you say we could do a whole show on each of these topics too. I know we're coming up the but Fulke and Thomas. Thank you so much for making time available to catch up when they congratulations on some of the amazing innovations that you're cheating now and I'm always breathlessly excited about what's coming at us of the next year or so just out of Ericsson line and and what you're making possible with some of the new and innovative ways that carries an operators can offer services that It's kind of like. I almost got wait for the next year. But I don't WanNa do that because it'll h me quickly but fogy Thomas.

"Had some help from from from computers and technology and everything to help them make an informed decision or the right decision or or or better decision? And that's where I think again. This digitalization is really going to help them there. And then I think you know the point is that it's really it's really heterogeneous. I think there's there's going to be data and information coming from all sorts of areas here and you've got to have kind of this ubiquitous this platform this ecosystem to be able to consume all these different different a data repositories these different sources of data. So they can feed that feedback clinician with the right information and this is where again we need to have. Great Technology partners that are connecting facilitate that. They're flexible enough to be able to pull that information from the different areas. And then you have these great clinical algorithms that CNN actually leverage all that data and then and then make the right decision for for for the patient. Indeed Industry you here. We have a thing called the flying Doctor Service because the sixth largest piece of dirt on the planet. Twenty five million people where we're quite well spread out and so often. People live on farms remote areas or country towns. Where there just isn't a doctor and we have to fly the pick them up and bring him back to the city's imagine this is now going to kind of shrink the world and create the small village mentality that whole world is connected and digital anyway can bring these skills one of the things. I was fascinated about with and I thought about the relationship. You've you've formed now where you're working so closely with Intel is. Is it fair to say that? Now you've got the to kind of open the door in the same well. Siemens and Siemens health and he has had a whole range of challenges that you've put interests it help us solve these. Imagine now you kind of ask them well. What else haven't we thought token sort of Wilkins they will. Have you considered this? So have you seen this technology just built this? Imagine now you can flip the coin in that you've gone to challenges and they've helped you solve them and you've got democracy early probably done it at a fraction of the cost if you had to build yourself self but now. I imagine you'll kind of asking them. What other things can you do to help us differentiate? Yeah absolutely I mean. It really is here as as we talked about earlier. Health healthcare is playing a little bit of catch-up relates to technology here. So we're we're now kind of embracing and trying to figure out how we can leverage all these technological advances topic click ai and whatnot but again from from Intel's perspective and in other in other disciplines you know. Technology has been used quite prevalent through throughout other industries here. So we're we're we're turning to our partners in Intel and saying you know. Hey where where? Some other places that we can apply. Apply your great technology towards in the healthcare space. And you talked about earlier. Does you know about about reaching remote patients and cannot remote areas of the country. Or How do you get? How do you get clinical specialty? Special specialist to those areas. I mean with with the help it Intel. We're now we're now actually putting together solutions where we can. We can remotely operate some of our imaging equipment or some of our. You know therapy procedure equipment off from a remote location so being able to kind of say you know. That patient doesn't have to be flown into the big city to have that procedure of that exam done. Let's let's let them go to this the community hospital and then we'll have our specialist doctor who's who. Who is you know? Who's the expert there being able to remotely controlled control the The scanner or remotely troll the therapy device there and again this is. He's our visa great concepts that that I think Siemens when necessarily thought on their own. And you know what the Hell intone insult? Kind of saying look in in other industries you know kind of remote access. Computing Industries is norm. You know you can actually apply that into the healthcare space and we've got the technology that enables that you know it's it's fun. Great conversations happier that actually turned into something You know again beneficial for the patient. Indeed I mean I'm studying thinking about what we've been doing. Vpn technology forever email web browsing? Why could we use that With with Intel's VPN secure encrypted technology just to get data across from from remote site to special still multiples. But also what doing chip level around things like mobile devices an in Car Technology. Now make it health related. I wonder if we could maybe wrap up with one last thing. I liked to US my guests to do and that is that when we think about all the things you've done here and congratulations on an amazing success stories. They found with seem as healthy as I think. It's an exciting concept to my mind is kind of like a stop legacy in many ways and that we still fintech within banks. We saw all these other spaces Piven applies digital thinking to legacy environments. I think it's an a phenomenal success. Story the the pot and got into bed with Intel and and looked at leveraging strings particularly leveraging. What until does the so broadened deepen every space. If I was to ask you one last question. I'd love to hand Your Crystal Ball. A virtual crystal say could you guys into this and just for a moment ponder where we are now twenty twenty if we wouldn't look at an x three to five years. I mean it's a very big fundamental shifts around mobility and enterprise mobility something in traditional enterprise. Space I can see this coming into health. I can see all the things. You're working around with remote imaging an onsite imaging processing. I can imagine that as you said before. If you've got something where a machine learning model is being applied to particular thing with ten fifteen someone might say. Well I WANNA run a thousand years with analysis on this. We'll just stand up a thousand cores in the cloud bound by Intel. And see what happens. It's going to cost six dollars. I would say yes do that. But advise the DP decision whether it's with your vice president of business development at digital health healthy or not in the next three to five years. What are some of the big trends you think are gonNA come out around? What's possible how we're gonNA see things pivot because one of the things I'd love to do is give people come a couple of takeaway thoughts that they can then look at actioning You know do they have a great strategy in place said they got the right skill sets has HR department thought about this. Imagine given the year literally the bleeding edge. You a better position than almost anyone I've met for a while on the planet was sort of think about what's coming horizon. And what should people be thinking about? Yeah I mean I you know for for me personally I you know I see I see a big push especially in the healthcare space around personalized medicine. We touched on it a little bit here with with some of the solutions that we're working on it. Siemens but but I think again this concept of a personalized medicine. So it's not only finding kind of the right diagnosis and Whatnot. But it's also getting trying to create that personalized therapy plan. That's really optimized for for the individual here so stabbed like platforms that again really ingesting. Large amounts of data to be able to kind of figure out almost create. Kind of almost. Like a bit of of of you're me right there this digital twin concept that we talked about earlier. But but the whole reason why there's this concept the digital twenty and everything is because we're we're trying to push towards the concept of personalized medicine. So wouldn't it be great if I have a twin of Dez that I could actually then try out different different therapies to see which one is the most effective to declare the ailment that you have but in order to do that from a practical standpoint. It's going to require a lot amount and data and that data has to be really in kind of a discreet or curated form and what I mean by. That is kind of being A. It's gotta be in a form where we could extract that information and do something with it and I think that's a challenge rate that we have today from a practical sense with with all these new emerging technologies especially in healthcare as they're relying a lot on on on data but data may not actually be in that discreet or curated. Form that these algorithms and everything need you know. They might be just kind of buried. Might be just kind of like a scion of of of a patient history. You know that or a photo or something of that sort and and what we really want to do is trying to pull out all those different data elements and make them kind of discreet in interior basically finding meaning behind all that all that all that data so one of the one of the things that that practically needs to be done today is kind of making sure that data becomes an accessible in easily able to index and search and be able to pull out all the right pieces of information and arguably especially healthcare. A lot of that data is is not in that form today. You know a lot of providers say oh. Yeah we've accumulated history of ten twenty years worth of data. Whatever but you know if those those pieces of data again are just scans of a paper there. You're going to be difficult to to pull out what that clinical meaning is so so I think what what can be done right now is really kind of you know making the data accessible and preparing the information so that we can feed some of these new technologies in the future. This is this is something that's going to be a big challenge but something that If if done correctly then you can leverage all these great these great new and emerging technologies. That are happening today. Indeed and I had a startup of my own years ago where we were doing digital transmissions for healthcare environments. Bigly age care and I'd horror scenario around what you're just talking about with the protection data. Where an H? Person had to get their records and IT TURNS OUT. It wasn't in a cardboard box in a in a compactness storage space in the building. It was in a forty foot shipping container behind the healthcare center and had rained and everything in there. Turner Pep couldn't get the person's record so they had to go through all the scans and all tests again even though they didn't charge him a second time. Just the pain the drama. But I had this mental picture when you're talking about digital twins eventually having seem insulting year Intel palled Tamagotchi of myself. Which which I look forward to. I can't wait to download.

Race: Can We See It In Our DNA?
"June morning in Washington DC, and we're in the White House's East Room where a press conference is set up. There's an expectation in the air. Everyone stands and in walks President Bill Clinton. Clinton walks up to the Partium and faces a room full of photographers reporters and scientists behind him on a TV screen is some scienc- that very cheesy imagery, a double helix, and the words decoding the book of life. Good morning. We are here. To celebrate. The completion of the first survey of the entire human genome Clinton is announcing that the human genome project had hit its watershed moment and mapped out the human genome for the first time reveal nearly all three billion letters of our miraculous synthetic code and on that stage. One idea that was front and center was about race race had always been this concept that carried a ton of white socially. But did it have any scientific meaning will now this project had mapped the DNA of five people who had ancestry from across the globe, including Asia, Europe and Africa. So what did they find? Well that day in two thousand it was announced that on a genetic level. These people would basically no different ugly. One of the great truths to emerge from this triumphant expedition inside the human genome is that in genetic terms. All human beings, regardless of race or more than ninety nine point nine percent. The same one of the lead scientists on the project took the stage and drove this message home, the concept of race has no genetic or scientific basis. There's no way to tell one ethnishity from one another. So these guys might have thought they were closing the door on the idea that race was biological. But actually this announcement left the rice door ajar because ninety nine point nine percent the same that means zero point one percent different. So in the twenty years since this announcement, what has science found out about that tiny bit of difference between the soul does race live there. Because that's what some people starting to say. If you're looking at someone from China, you're looking at a man from Kenya. Yeah. There's something different about them. So your instinctive understanding is correct race is real these are biological fats. They're not sociological construct. And this idea that new science shows the races, a real it's taking hold in dot corners of the internet where white supremacists using it to make even bigger claims. The genetics proves the white people of the smarter superior rice. Okay. So what's happening here for centuries race has been a political and social idea, but where does science fit into this today? We're to answer the following questions. One. We'd new science can we see race in genetics and two if he can what those differences main like could one race be smarter than another. When it comes to race. There are lots of opinions, but then Dez science. Yet. This is actually an area science has missed up for a long time. We'll tell you about that too. Science says race is coming up just after the break. Episode of science Festus is brought to you by dropbox dropbox is more than cloud storage. It's an entire collaboration platform.

Welcome back today. We're talking about race. And we're asking scientifically does it exist. And by that we mean that when you look at how DNA can you see consistent differences that separate people who are black or white or Asian or what have you, but understanding the science behind race is super complicated and messy poly because it has this dodgy scientific history. To tell us about it. We got professor Dorothy Roberts from the university of Pennsylvania into our office and put a microphone in front of a I have a giant puffy thing in front of my mouth fuzzy it's furry it's furry and pretty quickly. We got into the history of race and science thirty told us that really began in the seventeenth and eighteenth century in Europe. It was the age of enlightenment. Science in Europe was having a heyday and scientists were racing to understand the world around them. These typologies were classifying all of nature, they were classifying plants and animals and rocks. You know, other aspects of the natural world, and they included human beings. Colonialism was in full swing Europeans with sailing to Africa, the Americas and Asia and seeing all these people who looked really different to themselves, and so they started to categorize them too. And this was a particular pastime of this highly respected botanist, cold Khaldun, Nias kirwin may Swedish typology just had a very prominent enterprise of classification. Call slaughtered people into several categories, including European African Asian and native American. Oh, yeah. And he had some wild cod categories to like there was this one called you win lupine ass- or get this. Wolf boys for children raised by wolves really widdly that one didn't catch on. But what did catch on with some of the descriptions that he and other scientists gave? Of each race always giving Europeans the best adjectives. He's Dorothy white people are characterized as beautiful, and they're also characterized as the most rational and black people are described as prone to violence to laziness to illness to mental disorders, call also described Asians as severe and haughty while native Americans were reddish and obstinate. All through the seventeen and eighteen hundreds scientists ran with these ideas, claiming that you could see real differences in the bodies and brains of the rices and very quickly a clear scientific hierarchy was formed with white people at the top and everyone else underneath them. And all of the scientists thought they were being objective. But we can now see in hindsight that they were being woefully subjective. That's even too mild a term they were being racist. And part of the reason these ideas was so powerful was because they were very useful for justifying slavery as well as colonization more. Generally after all if science says that Africans or native Americans are less group of people, then it's okay to take them land. And enslave them it made the. Domination of white people over other people seem as if it was just following what nature had planned.
Saints open to bringing back Dez Bryant for 2019
"One player that's going under the radar this free agency period of saints wide receiver Dez Bryant, Bryan. Who's now free agent is coming off in achilles injury that could be possibly the final chapter of his eight-year career. But according to NFL reports he wants the comeback this season. And with the saints NFL analyst, Mike, thanks a saints could be interested. I think Sean would like to give him an opportunity again. He's coming off the D. Achilles injury deaths was looked as though yet loss of step even before that. So I think he just doesn't have a lot of options. But I think the saints would like to give him an opportunity. The last time Brian reached over one thousand yards receiving was in twenty fourteen with the
Where will Antonio Brown land?
"And Tonio Brown. I'm seeing a lot of different names. I theorized yesterday. Carolina could be interesting. They've got their lebian bell and Christian McCaffrey. They've got a defensive coach what they don't have with Cam who's not a great precision thrower. But he does throw a great deep ball is get them a big time home run threat. Do you think there's a place and it could happen? Very quickly. We're in Tonio Brown lands. I wanna make your podcast, which which is on overnight or whatever. And I'm worried that we're going to say something now, and he's going to be traded in the next two minutes. I'm going to try to give us a vague enough answer. So we can live online, Colin. I would say this don't just believe all the teams that are not how this works. There's going to be a surprise team. I love the Carolina fit. I actually think that's a really good one out of the conference another team. I would give you the New Orleans Saints. And you might be saying, oh, come on the saints have no money to spend. They've got all these guys. They've gotta take care. Mike thomas. There are ways to make it work. And if you think about what would Sean Payton has been about the last few years, it's making a splash going and getting the guy trading a first round pick for next year to get Marcus Davenport signing Dez Bryant, he denied it at the combine because his name was linked to it a little bit Sean say that we're not I wouldn't be shocked at the. The saints are making some phone calls right now. The question is can they get into Neo Brown for a second or third round pick? They don't have a first round pick.
