A highlight from SBF's Election FRAUD (Dark Donations EXPOSED!)
"We are, uh, here in the Bahamas, we are going to make it right. If you became a millionaire, would you keep working? The commander is here. What's going on right now? California's trying to figure out this thing. Don't think I got a pop in my butt. Yeah. Oh, I can. Welcome to BitBoy Crypto! Home of the BitSquad, the largest and greatest crypto community in all of the Interwebs. I just propelled from the ceiling, folks. I actually jumped off the monkey's shoulders there. Today is August 15th. It's the middle of the month. Wake up, wake up. It's the middle of the month. It is 11 .32 a .m. because we meant to start at that time. How are you doing today? We have on the boards today. Ah, it's me. Drew, we got the truth back. Where's Tim? Tim, I think they're offside at like some manager meeting or something like that. Probably at Applebee's, you know? Okay, yeah, I'm just the talking face, man. I'm just the talking face in the white hoodie. How are we all doing? Davenport's in the house. Alexandra G Studio, 388 Manawak, John Redman, Jay, Arth Vader, great name right there. We also got some junkies in the house. How are we all doing? Ben is in Dubai. We might cover that a little bit on X minute, but I think it's just time for us to get right into MarketWatch. How are we all doing? Crypto is doing okay. It looks like it ballooned a little bit early this morning. If we hit refresh, we're now down 0 .2. Okay, so we flipped into the negative here. 24 -hour volume. Still pretty low coming in at 31 billion. Bitcoin dominance unchanged at 46 .9. Gas might actually be unchanged at 31 Gwei. I think it might have been 31 yesterday if not really, really close. Alright, Bitcoin is now down 0 .5 % along with Ethereum. Let's see, we have BNB down 0 .6%. Nothing's really moving. If we go to finally find something in the single digits, it's Doge. Doge is down a little bit. Polygon is down 2 .2. And then we have our first real gainer of the day. That's TonCoin. TonCoin now up to 16 in coin market cap. I don't recall it being that high that long ago, so they're now up 4 .6%. Keep scrolling. Chainlink peeled back a lot of the gains there, so maybe I could be able to get some cheap Chainlink again. Let's see, we go to the top gainers. Hedera still gaining, still making moves. I think yesterday at this time, it was up 16%. Now, it is up 11%. So really like seeing that pump right there. Flexcoin up 10%. Radix up 6 .8%. And ThorChain, look at that. Weekly folks up 51%. RollBit up 3 .5%. But look at that. Weekly folks up 6 .5 % or 65%. So RollBit having some pretty good gains. Have you been getting any of these major movers lately? I was lucky enough to be in RollBit for months. I saw one person he posted. His last two trades was RollBit and ThorChain. What about you? Any of these major movers? Okay. It says Mike muted. Is your mic muted? Are they trolling you? Oh, no, it was muted. Oh, man. Guys, he just gave you the secret to the universe and gave you KFC's 11 herbs and spices. Secret stuff. But yeah, XDC was the last bump I had, and then I didn't get back in HBAR after its 8 -cent hump that it had previous to what it's got going on right now. Watching HBAR to get back into it, but then also seeing CASPA pull back a little bit. So I'm watching CASPA looking for my entry point. Well, speaking of CASPA, the number one coin in the top 100 that lost value today actually was CASPA. CASPA is down 8 .8%. Pepe is down 6 .3 % and Injective is down 4 .2%. Chainlink down 3 .7%. I was joking about buying some more Chainlink. Guys, I don't have any CASPA. I have zero CASPA. It is now down 20 % for the week. It's now below 4 cents. I said, you know, I like that little support at that, I think it was 3 .9, and now we maybe even potentially going below that. Yeah, it was the high here. So we're below the high here. We're below the high here. Does that mean we have another leg to go down? I'm not going to wait for 2 cents. I might go ahead and start scaling it now now that we're in the 3's there. Let's see. We hit max. It got as high. Yeah, that was just the recent relative high there. How high do you think it can go? There's no price memory. So there's no 2021 level to look at. I mean, I think CASPA is going to be a major mover in this next bull run. I think that DAGs, Constellation DAG and CASPA are going to have their own little narrative driven, you know, season in the market. It's nothing that, you know, I'm necessarily getting married to, like Metagraphs or taking over blockchain or anything like that. You know, a lot of people in this, in the DAG space think that way. I think it's just going to have a good moment of notice and notoriety in the bull run. And all you need is your time to shine and the lights to be on in an actual speculative bull run to really have good moves. So that's why I'm watching that one. Yeah. And we're still a ways away, folks. You know, we could still be two years from the high. We could be two years and two months from the high. I don't think it'd be much higher than 26 months. But guys, we still got a long road ahead of us before we have this blow off topper. Maybe not blow off top, but the top. All right. Well, speaking of... Not going to do that segue. Not going to do that segue. Oh. Let's talk about SBF. Let's get into the main story here. I'm glad I didn't do that segue. U .S. Grand Jury files new seven -count charges against Sam Bankman -Fried, files new seven -count charges. This is a little odd way of saying it, but seven new counts have just been filed against Sammy Boy here. Of course, bail was revoked last week after he leaked private conversations of Caroline Ellison. Also, you know, used the VPN. Judge did not like those actions. Well, the Grand Jury filed a superseding indictment against Sam Bankman -Fried, the founder of FTX. Among the indictment was that he covered, he cornered over $100 million in customer funds for political reasons. Another way of saying that is he used customers' funds to bribe politicians. Sorry, not bribe, to donate, to donate to politicians. It's not bribing, folks. It is not bribing. The Grand Jury argued that SBF knowingly used FTX's investors and customers' funds to enrich himself. It also claimed he sponsored campaign contributions to U .S. political parties to seek to influence cryptocurrency regulation. Now we have the U .S. Criminal Division is charging him with conspiring to commit wired fraud. Notably, the seven -count charge comes after the U .S. court revoked his bail, sending him to jail last week. His bail was revoked after he leaked the diary of Caroline Ellison with the New York Times. Meanwhile, his lawyer has contested the court decision. We looked into that jail. MDC Brooklyn, not a good jail. It is not a good jail where he is at. There's lots of allegations of bugs in the food, plastic in the food, feces everywhere. Just not a great jail that you want to be at. Owen, you don't want to end up there. Is that not the effect of altruism he was looking for? No, no. Wrong kind of cucumber. I mean, he's learning about liquidity pools. There's so many jokes we could say, but let's not go there. Sam Bankman -Fried's dark donations to the GOP came back to haunt him. He was accused of funneling $100 million towards political donations. They said they mostly hid the Republican donations there, but he was charged with seven counts there. He was accused of funneling $100 million towards political donations in the 2022 election cycle. Guys, and that's just the midterm elections. Can you imagine if that was a presidential election? I'm not saying it's a two -to -one, but they probably would have spent more money. Yeah, well, SBF was only outdone by Soros in the presidential election in 2020. It's something that I've been looking at for this entire three years. We're almost into the next election cycle, and this is just now being looked at. That's probably the most aggravating thing. And then the cut of GOP to Dem, of course, he did donate to both sides, but it's very, very weighted towards the blue side where his donations went to, I above 90%. think that number may have been changed a little bit. We're going to see some more details here. Let's get into it. I want to find out more. The indictment said he failed to disclose to the FEC that his donations came from customer deposits via Alameda. He did this by directing Gary Wang to alter FTX's code, which gave Alameda improper access to customer deposits. The court finally read, over time, he directed that Alameda's credit limit be raised so high that in practice, they were permitted to draw on FTX accounts funded by customer assets on an unlimited basis. He was also one of the GOP's largest donators there. Yeah, this is the number I was looking for. Among various donations, he gave $27 million to Protect Our Future PAC, a group advocating for pandemic preparedness. This was 95 % of the $28 million raised by that group, which spent $24 million on Dem House candidates. Other executives made donations in their own names. Ryan Solomay donated, here's the number, Drew, $24 .5 million to Republican candidates through the WinRed platform. So while 90 % might be or 95 % might be SPF's number, when you look at FTX, all their employees, it's a little bit more nuanced than that. But it's still leaning Democrat, but I think roughly around close to a quarter, close to a quarter has gone to Republicans as well. But I found it interesting that he didn't use his own name to donate to Republicans. He used someone else and he hid the salami there. I guess he didn't want to piss off his parents' friends. I was talking about this in the Morning Stream ATB. His parents were California university professors at an elite school hanging out in Palo Alto. How many of those people at their wine and cheese party have a MAGA hat on? Probably not that many. They have appearances to keep up here. Do you own DWAC stock, Truth Social Growing Fast? I did learn that the VEC was a principal investor in rumble. Is he currently still in on rumble? He was basically one of the big funders in the beginning. Rumble's an interesting thing to watch because it's really gaining what seems to be steam. Ahead of this next election cycle, a lot of people have looked for alternative places and platforms other than YouTube. Obviously, YouTube is still the most powerful, but it's seeming to grab a small portion of viewers and its interface is becoming more usable, so it'll be interesting to see if it actually has a play. Who's one of the main people on there? Russell Brand. Shout out to Russell Brand and a shout out to anybody who smokes Jeffries. All right, back to FTX here. FTX exec Salome depleted the fifth about campaign finance schemes. This is a persuasion technique. Campaign finance violation schemes is kind of setting the table before we get there. He plans not to testify at the criminal trial regarding the illegal campaign donations. He said he'll be unavailable to testify as a witness. He's unavailable, the filing states. His attorney has represented that if subpoenaed, he would invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self -incrimination. According to prosecutors, he told a family member in November of 21, which is the month of Bitcoin's high, that Bankman wanted to weed out anti -crypto lawmakers through political donations and that Salome himself would help to distribute. Salome, he's the right hand. Then Bankman, he was the left hand. He's going to go to prison and never mind there. All right, well, what are your thoughts on... Now it's coming out that Republicans got some money too. I mean, I don't think it really changes the narrative. I mean, sure, he's cozy with politicians on the left. I think he's just cozy with regulators and is trying to create a moat. And those who don't know what a moat is, once you're a tech company or any kind of company, say a billion dollars in revenue, you can then make a moat in your industry where if anyone tries to compete against you, they would need billions of dollars and you effectively create a moat from new competition. A good example is, is it the FDA that does drug approval? It's my understanding it can take 10 years and over a billion dollars to launch a drug. So what does that do? It creates a moat for the handful of pharmaceutical companies. And I think we're seeing the same thing here. FTX, he wanted to create a moat and be the only American crypto provider.
Fresh update on "davenport" discussed on SI Media Podcast
"Iron's done the Steelers three weeks in a row. I thought so. I thought this may be the longest stretch we haven't caught up to usually catch up every couple of weeks during the season. But it feels like I've watched him do a lot of Steelers games. Yeah, it's it's a part of it, but it helps when you have a repeat customer because, you know, the nuances of the season and usually when you do a game, you follow closely the next week. Like we had the Vikings two weeks ago in Denver. So when I watched the Monday night game, you're almost watching a little bit closer with a little more interest in what happens, what plays out after all the stuff that you had researched and discussed the week before. So when you get a repeat customer, it becomes a week that you can you can kind of dive even deeper. It becomes an enjoyable week to do even more enjoyable week to do the game. Speaking of travel and iron, I had him on this podcast two weeks ago and I asked him a question when I ask you, have you ever come close to missing a game? Yeah, I heard that with iron. I had not heard. I've heard most of his stories. I did not hear the sort of Spinarco was with him for that one. Right. Yeah. Yeah. I had not heard that. No, I I knock on wood, have not. I had I'll tell you the closest I came and it wasn't that bad at all. It was I was doing ABC college football and ESPN college football in the mid 2000s. And I did an ESPN game on Thursday night and did an ABC game on Saturday afternoon. It was Michigan, Michigan State was one of the best Michigan, Michigan State games in the series. It was a triple overtime game in Ann Arbor. Big comeback by the Wolverines. Braylon Edwards caught three touchdowns. Michigan rally to win. And that's my hometown, Ann Arbor. I couldn't get to the airport to make my flight to do golf on ABC on Sunday in Carolina. So I ended up going back to my house, which was the fortunate part. Got on a six or seven a.m. Flew to Charlotte, the Greensboro, excuse me, flew to Greensboro, did the golf tournament from the airport to the golf tournament. Went to look at the holes, called the three hours on ABC, right back to the airport, back home Sunday night. So it was a it was a true 18 hour trip to do the final round of that golf tournament. But that was the old that was about as close as I've come to missing a game because I'm not doing the Nets or any local team. Rarely are your network assignments stacked back to the back. And if they are, usually the company will make sure that there's private travel to get you to the next one. If you're doing a back to back 24 hours. Yeah. But back in those ESPN days, you're doing a lot of college basketball, NBA, college football. I guess I that's why I thought maybe in that. Yeah. So did you. So it was because the game went to triple overtime that you couldn't get. There's no shot, no shot at making like an eight thirty or something to Charlotte and drive to Greensboro or whatever that was. So I remember coming out of the big house and going down the street. And, you know, I live in the area, so I know the back streets to get there and every possible angle was cut off. And at some point I was 15 minutes in the flight and 25 miles away. Like we had no shot. So I just kind of went back home and turned around and did the golf tournament in a in a no no night in the hotel golf tournament. It was a weird time because nobody was broadcasting the fall PGA Tour events at that point. So USA Network did Thursday through Saturday, usually, and ABC aired like seven Sundays. So I had a stretch where I would do Thursday ESPN College with Herb Street and Corso. Saturday, ABC College Football with Tim Brandt and Terry Bowden and Suzy Schuster, Rich Eisen's wife, who's our sideline reporter for a couple of those years, and then Sunday go do the PGA Tour event wherever that was. And then and then go back to Bristol to do the Monday night studio show to wrap it up. So that was the busiest stretch I had. I had maybe six weeks like that every fall for about three years. How was doing the games with Herb Street and Corso? I wish I have a terrible memory. It's a big problem. Yeah. And I wish I had more of a recollection of Corso doing games. I mean, I know game day, obviously. I don't. Yeah. For some reason, I don't have that those memories of him doing games. How was that? It was awesome. Oh, my gosh. It was it was so much fun in the prep and so much fun on air. And then the time spent during those couple of days was just priceless. I I adore Lee. What a guy. I was reflecting on this the other day because I reached out to call Hubie Brown on Thanksgiving because he's he's my guy. I love him. I have a chance to work with studio shows or games. Vital, Corso, Hubie. I mean, three amazing people who continue to do quality work late into their lives. All coaches, all coaches with a great passion for teaching, all with distinct, distinct and distinguished personalities on the air. And and how lucky was I to get the chance at different points in the career to to be a part of all that. So, of course, I was of course, it was a blast to do games with. So Mo Davenport was our executive in the studio. Lee and Kirk really got their thing going after Kirk replaced Craig James on college game day. And they were on the road. So when they would go on the road to do the college football shows for game day on site with Fowler, I was the guy back in the studio doing highlights and the cut ins and the pregame to the halftime. And every once in a while they'd stay back in studio. We'd all work together. And so we get to the Thursday night package as ESPN starting to grow. A lot of Virginia Tech games, Georgia Tech, Mountain West, Colorado State, BYU. The idea Mo Davenport, our coordinating producer at the time, said, hey, how about how about you do the games with Corso and Herb Street? And our sideline reporter was Dr. Jerry Punch. And we had maybe three years together, four years. I forget exactly what it was. Late 90s, early 2000s. But oh, my gosh, we had an absolute blast. And it was kind of get in Wednesday, kind of speed meet both teams, do the game on Thursday and then Thursday night or Friday morning at four or five a.m. It was escape, Doc Punch to a NASCAR racer to his Saturday game, me to my Saturday game, Corso and Herb Street to game day. Man, it was it was a great time. And Lee brought that same Corso showmanship personality. You know, he'd make some coaching points throughout the game as a coach. You do this. And that was great. But the time sitting at dinner and talking to Lee and all that fun stuff. I just thought, Jimmy, this is right up your alley. The first football game I called for ESPN. Was the Florida, Georgia high school all star game. And Corso was my analyst. It was in Daytona Beach and it was the day after the O.J. chase. Oh, wow. So I am sitting in not exactly a four star hotel in Daytona. Corso's across the hall or next door. I forget. And the O.J. chase is going on during the Rockets next game in the NBA finals. Right. And it's any of us who are around or have seen the 30 for 30. That was like an all time day. Right. Anarchy, anarchy. Oh, my. That's one of my one of my favorite 30 for 30s, because it was so well done. The behind the scenes, the NBC of the finals, all of that. Yeah. Knock on my door. It's Corso. Do you believe this? And Lee set in my room and we sat for about 20 minutes and watch the chase play out. It was just an extraordinary day that I'll I'll never forget. But I don't know what was he was he doing? Was he doing commentary throughout the day? I think we were all just stunned. Like, oh, my gosh. Like, you can't can't believe what's going on. And, you know, Lee, obviously, through his history of college football, when O.J. had an impact in the sport and couldn't figure out what was going on and our cowlings and all of that. So of all things like, you know, you kind of remember your first game I've done, you know, hundreds of football games down. The very first one I did on a network TV was a Florida, Georgia high school all star game with Corso in Daytona. And the quarterback for the team from Georgia was Hines Ward.

No fatalities reported in Iowa as officials plan to demolish partially collapsed building
"And Iowa apartment building that collapsed on Sunday will be demolished. Officials in Davenport say the demolition of what was once the Davenport hotel will begin Tuesday morning. The collapse injured at least one person and displaced countless residents and business owners. It's not known why the building collapsed, but Davenport fired chief Michael Carlson says investigators are searching for a cause. There's been normal rental complaints, but there has been some complaints to the structure. We issued notice and orders to have those repaired. The building owner hired their own engineering firm to direct them and the repairs needed to be made. Residents have not been allowed back inside to remove their belongings due to the building's unstable condition. I'm Mike Hempen.
"davenport" Discussed on AI in Business
"Brought up the sending letters to senators, you brought up the customer service use case, tell me if this sounds crazy, but I'm almost wondering how we get out of this world. I imagine a world where if I have a customer service issue, there's nothing I hate more than being on the phone and sitting there and waiting. If I could prompt, this is what I need done, I need to cancel this, do this, and have either a voice or a chat system, go get that job done. Somebody else is going to have a chance to responding to me. I almost imagine a world where as a lawyer, as a senator, as a user who has companies that I need to do customer service with, I'm actually just sending my bots out to talk to theirs and then I'm looking at a dashboard of what the results were. Is that too far out or are there areas where you potentially see that happening? Well, you know, again, we've been saying that chat bots and automated customer service was going to be good. Not yet, but I do think this has enormous potential for being the thing that really brings that about and it may be none of us have to talk to anybody anymore. It just have your AI AI. Oh man, yeah, that makes me think about my future as a podcaster here, Tom, to be honest with you. Is there a time where I send you an email and you say, yeah, have my bot talk to your bot. And we just have a great conversation. We never know anything about it. Any closing notes that you would give to leadership. You've given them the idea for thinking about the value of their own corpus of data, being adamant about experimenting, but also being careful about legal, any other passing thoughts, having seen so many technology trends and waves come through your career. Anything else you'd want people to keep their eyes and ears kind of feel for. Well, I'm a sociologist. And so I think I'm always interested in what's the impact on people and so if I were running a company, I'd say to everybody in my organization, look, this is a really amazing tool and we're not sure exactly what's going to happen to the workforce, but we're pretty confident that the people who know how to use this best are the ones who are going to thrive in our employment and you might want to put yourself in that category and establish communities, establish little courses, et cetera, et cetera. I mean, you don't need a lot to learn how to write good prompts, but some instruction would probably be useful. And I think every company ought to be putting those things in place. So figuring out is Sally figuring out a great way to use this for, you know, LinkedIn marketing is Jeffrey finding a great way to handle customer service with certain use cases. And can we get a playbook? Can we train teams? Can we share ideas and make that a contrast effort? It sounds like it's what you're going out. Yeah, and you know, one thing that's very interesting I wrote a book a number of years ago called only humans need apply. And my co author, Julie Kirby had this idea of pretty soon we'll all be bringing our robot to work in a way, you know, maybe we'll all have our own personal generative AI system that we bring to work with us and increase our productivity and effectiveness enormously. I actually think that that's a really nice high note to sort of wrap up on because I think that's a positive vision. I think what a lot of people are fearful of Thomas that we're going to be run by janitor of AI systems that have the goal of selling ecommerce products that have the goal of capturing our attention and robbing us of sleep. And I'm not blaming any tech companies. I'm just saying business is business, but this idea of having our own AI could be cool. I am grateful time that I get to talk to you before that era, because instead of talking to your bot, I talk to you, and I'm grateful to our listeners for tuning in, maybe at some point you'll get the paragraph version of this interview, but for right now, you listen to me and Tom, we've taken the time to hopefully share some useful stuff with you so thank you for tuning in. And Tom, I know that's all we have for time. So thank you so much for joining us. Thanks for staying. It was great. Really enjoyed it. So that's all for this episode of the AI in business podcast. A big thank you to Tom for being able to be with us. Thank you to you for tuning in all the way through to the end of this episode. And we've just wrapped up our 5th of 5 episodes about generative AI and human reward systems. I hope that this was useful for you. We plan on doing more AI futures series. I believe that these topics are incredibly important to unpack with different kinds of people with different kinds of backgrounds, and we had a really all star group to be able to present for you in this particular series.

So I appreciate your perspective, feel free to join me on social. Otherwise, I sincerely appreciate your rolling with me. I love this episode with Tom. I'm really glad to be able to go on these journeys with you guys and move a little bit farther into the future. And I'm glad we were able to get it done this one. So thanks again so much.

And if somewhat painful to stop that but this is after all the golden age of television and it's not so horrible to stay at home and watch it all the time and i can talk to my wife during it a knighton eat up really good popsicle or change a glass of wine or something like that while i'm doing it so it hasn't been that bad. I think the comparison to previous periods wars or spanish flu pandemic or whatever where we had to just sit at home and just reading was about the only possibility. I really liked reading. But i like other things to this. Is nothing what we've had to go through. It seems to me. In comparison we'd been entertaining ourselves. Pretty royal late. Yes thanks to amazon and netflix and all the other online entertainment sources exactly. It's hard to keep track of them all there so many now every network wants to have their own own the customer relationships. Yeah i think we will have at some point analytics and a i that will tell us which ones are best suited to us. But i think now you gotta spend a lot of human time figuring out join sign up for the new peacock my getting something on acorn that.

Tom devonport you have shared so many great ideas and insights with us today on my quest for the best. I want to thank you for sharing with us the ideas of from your graduate professors who shared with you both taking in the big picture and another faculty member looking at being more data driven and how that's helped shape the areas of interest that you've pursued in your career. Thanks for talking with us about amazon. And how they're moon shots one's been very successful with their stores any other one. The jury is still out on but the idea's that they're bringing to us our serves inspiration for other things that we're looking at ears of ai. You share with us. The idea that in order to take advantage of ai. You've got to make time to think about it. You've got to raise your awareness of what's going on and you've also got to realize that maybe the technology is more and more affordable but don't wait because the consultants and the people that are required to implement it within your company are never going to get cheaper. You talked about the example with radius finance. And have they use it to make better mortgage decisions that are faster for the consumer and more advantageous for the company. We talked about in healthcare. How you can use ai. In order to solve very difficult problems and one of the big issues with using it to a higher degree is being transparent with it many consumers. There's more technology available than we're deploying because consumers and users aren't as familiar were trusting it as muffed trusting enough in order to have it used to wider degree. We talked about fico and how they use it. As an example of being more and more transparent and we also also described for us the importance of being able to use ai in a judicious way in order to use to your advantage.

"Maybe a couple of the errors that you've seen made and will be a recommendation for people to learn about it and we probably could have done a lot more than we. Generally due in part for privacy related reason so for example we've had software for a while that could do facial recognition in a retail context. And it sounds great instead of paying for a human greeter at the front door. Somebody's presence would be known as soon as you walk in. And the proprietor could read them by name and get a display of what they bought recently and so on. The problem is that many customers were just feel creeped out by that level of intimacy particularly if they weren't friends with the store owner or whatever you have to consider not only what are the technology capabilities but is this something that would really freak out. A customer. feeling at their privacy had been violated to some degree. Michnik off on that i think in other cultures save london. Which is the most camera embedded culture. I've ever read about or experienced where their video cameras that feed into centralized servers of just everywhere. You walk in london and they're much more used to their indoctrinated to the fact that they don't have these levels of privacy that are enjoyed another places and statement china huge amount of facial recognition used in china both for commercial purposes. If you are going up to a bank. Atm machine to use your atm card to extract cash. A facial recognition system will confront. You are in fact. The person who is taking out the the cash at many banks certainly used in ways that we in the united states would not find so appealing sometimes for law enforcement activities for adjusting your social credit score based on whether or not you jay or not. I don't think we would like that very much. But you're right. There are definitely differences across cultures and how much tolerance people have for that kind of application as we look to offer more opportunities for using ai to our advantage and business. What are some questions and issues. That business leaders need to address about their constituents and about introducing it in a way. That is both respectful and ethical in the use of ai because it can be used in a lot of ways that are gray or even on the wrong side of the law. Yeah i think the most important factor is transparency. About what you're doing if you are going to use facial recognition software and cameras put up a sign that that announces that say something about what you're using it for say something about whether you are keeping a record of the data or not. I think in the united states are willing to tolerate a fair amount of the business is honest with them about what they're doing about it and gives them the opportunity to opt out if they are uncomfortable with i think these days we don't really know in many cases exactly how customers will feel about something. Sometimes you do have to try out some new capabilities without knowing for sure customers will go along with it but i think transparency and the ability to opt out. We'll make a lot of people feel better about g nova example of a company that successfully been very transparent about what they were doing. Is they moved into new areas using ai. Technology one of the earliest applications. That use machine learning was the credit score which was pioneered by fair isaac and co now known as fico and pretty much. Everybody knows that there's such a thing as fico score or credit score. but i admire what fair isaac. Now i guess they call themselves. Fico has done to provide transparency in that credit score so you can actually go on their site..

"Power as it were they provide storage of course of your data but they also provide a number of in most cases free applications many of which have to do with ai. Now if you're a google cloud user you can make use of tensor flow very sophisticated deep learning system. That will help you do things like image identification and the same is true of microsoft and amazon and to a lesser degree from a cloud perspective. Ibm although they do have a number of watson services that are available in the cloud i think they're constraint for small businesses is no longer processing power having a big data center paying a lot for software. I think there are still some constraints. One is the time to think about how would fit into the business. The awareness of what's possible with as many small business people are buried in the day to day. Don't have a lot of free time to imagine a better way to do business. And frankly there are still some constraints of hardware and software and the technology in general get cheaper all the time for the people who really understand. I are not getting any cheaper. So if it's something where you need to develop an ai application yourself for some reason those people are not going to be turbo. Chief you can rent them as consultants as you pointed out. There are available some pretty easy to use capabilities and in certain areas like robotic process automation. You don't need data science capabilities. Almost anybody who's computer-literate can automate a small process in your business using some visual point and click tools you've written about and studied examples through consulting work as well as your research of small businesses. The embraced a i and even advanced principles. What's an example of a company that you've worked with or learn about closely that's been able to take advantage of the tools and benefited in some measurable way in the near term. Not in some far off way but in real practical terms it's helped their business. Sure i live in. I'm in sarasota. Now but i live in boston. During the more hospitable months of the year and i became aware of an ai company that supported mortgage underwriting reno relatively small company mostly using natural language processing to extract key data elements from all of the many over five hundred types of forms that organizations use for mortgage related information and so. They told me about their first. Customer company radius. Finance based south of boston so i was quite interested in them and i contacted the chief operating officer. He told me about what he did with a. I basically supporting the entire process not only extracting the information but also in most cases making a decision about whether somebody is a good candidate for a mortgage company and using robotic process automation to do a lot of the automated correspondence with a borrower to contact all of the different parties in the transaction before it had cetera so they using those technologies radius has been able to reduce their processing costs quite dramatically much less than other companies which means of course they can lower That can offer better rates to customers and still make a quite healthy prophet.

Increases in Extreme Precipitation Cost the U.S. $73 Billion
"Torrential. Rainstorms can flood homes. Wash out roads and bridges and destroy crops over the past. Three decades flooding from heavy precipitation has caused about two hundred billion dollars of damage in the. Us francis davenport is a phd student. In earth system science at stanford university. She wanted to know how much of that enormous price tag can be blamed on global warming. We've seen that extreme precipitation events are increasing in frequency or intensity and so we wanted to quantify what are the financial costs of those changes in precipitation. Her team analyzed historic rainfall trends and financial data about flood damages over decades. They estimated that between nine thousand nine hundred eighty eight and twenty seventeen about seventy three billion dollars. A flood damage can be attributed to increases in extreme precipitation. That's more than a third of the cost of flooding over those thirty years. So devonport says that people are already paying the financial cost of warming world. I think having those hard dollar amounts is really important for some of these policy conversations about what to do.

Well, most people around the world are happy to see 2020 gone, but for space enthusiasts Last year was actually quite a good one, providing bits of promising news amid the bleak headlines of disease, economic hardship and protests. It's a story by Christian Davenport at The Washington Post Christian What can we expect from NASA? Well, they're going to keep launching astronauts. They had a test flight in May of 2020 and then an operational one with a full contingent. Of four astronauts, three from NASA one from Japan, and they're just going to continue that pace. I mean, a lot of people forget that NASA up until just recently, just up until the basic flight did not have the ability to fly astronauts. That's because the space shuttle was retired in 2011. Hey, Sex is restoring that capability for NASA, and they've got two more flights with astronauts to the international space station coming up in 2021. So that's gonna be a big thing for them are their plans to get regular people aboard. Space X at some point, Cristian Yeah, And that's actually could come up in the second half toward the end of 2021 used to be the policy from NASA that private citizens weren't allowed to fly up to the international space station. From American soil. They devise that, and now there's a company called Axiom Space that is on one hand working to build its own commercial space station. Think about sort of private hotel. And platform in space, but also looking flights on space. Texas crude dragon for wealthy individuals, we're talking, you know, you got to spend 10 days on the space station crossed about $50 million for the right to be able to do that, though. You know, you've got to have a lot of money to be able to do this, but actually, um, will train you Secure the transportation with Space X and in this case will have sort of a guy, Um Michael Lopez, a luxury a former NASA astronaut who now works or actually in space, So that's another thing we could see coming in 2021, in addition to the sub orbital space tourism That companies like Virgin Galactic, founded by Richard Branson and Blue Origin founded by Jeff Hazel's want to do and they want to start taking people on trips just to the edge of space and back. What is the Starship Spacecraft? Well, that is Elon musk dream in a lot of ways, it's his next generation space craft. That would be when this thing gets going massive and be able to take about 100. People are so, um, to the moon or tomorrow. So now it's Falcon nine Rocket and its Dragon spacecraft. Basics, uses those and take astronauts and cargo and supplies to the international space station. That is an earth orbit. That's about 250 miles away. They're now working on space X is a much bigger vehicle starship that would be fully reusable to go to the moon and on to Mars. They're working on developing that right now. At their launch site and broke a chica Texas, outside of Brownsville, the very southernmost tip of Texas and they're doing demonstration flight. Um all of, you know, working right up to the new year, and that will be a big thing for 2021. Ellen hopes of that vehicle will finally make orbit for the first time next year. We're speaking with Christian Davenport at The Washington Post. His pieces called 2021 could be a huge year for space. Here's what's to come from NASA, Elon Musk, Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos.

NFL Playoff Futures: Who will make the 2020 post-season?
"Wanted to talk about playoff odds and not not. Just who's gonna make the playoffs but also the nfc the nfc's a really weird place. The saints are plus three fifty to win this to in the nfc. None of us like the saints even are as good as they looked last week against tampa. There's still this unease with because breezes arm strength. It just makes me nervous. I'm starting to talk myself into the saints. Okay yeah okay so a couple of things number one. Smart people in july and august said wait until brady gets half a season under his belt and they're going to get better you know. No one cares. More about the details. And tom brady doesn't have a training. Camp does not as doesn't put pads on till till august fifteenth. He's gonna get better and better and better and so week one when when the bucks and the saints played. I threw that out. I said this this doesn't matter bracing to get better and better better. This was the closing the gap game for me. And then i didn't see that and obviously they were there whipped everywhere you know. Ali maher pet being out was a big thing with with with with people who started the game. But i think that this was bigger than than alley marquette quite frankly okay The the saints were able to get a four man rush the entire game. Are they able to pressure brady on half of his dropbacks when they had a four man rush. That's really good Since marcus davenport's come back in week five had the most pressures in football pressuring and football There's just something there. The problem at the beginning of the year was that lattimore and marcus williams were bad and those are two pretty good players and i think that you know a good pass rush. Ken console that those guys can get better and so with with brees. Listen there are. There are problems with the fact. You can't throw down the field. The offensive line is not as good as it has been in years hospice and matter with brees because he gets rid of the ball and a second. It's like peyton manning he doesn't need you know the the the best offensive line in the world and then lattimore who we were kind of dunking on because at one point he was giving almost a perfect passer rating. He owns mike evans. He own them. He is not given up a reception. Mike evans the last three games. They've played and so when if those guys play in the playoffs again. There's that match up. So i i don't. I'm feeling better about the saints. Now that i was two three weeks ago. Good coaching staff. I gary coaching staff. Yeah so the fear in this isn't just the saints but the fear is all right. What happens at their downtown in a playoff game. It's basically the lamar jackson corollary. How am i feeling down. Thirteen to three in the second quarter and they've just done a three and out. What were my emotions in that moment. That's my the saints because a breeze. I think that because they don't you don't think they're capable of a big play. Is that your fear if teams though like all right. They've got to air this out. They've got to quicken the pace and also it's amazing to me a cameras probably been the. Mvp think it's either him cook mahomes berry some order Okay i'm amazed at teams aren't just like all right. We're taking him out like bell. Check in his prime your. He got added as kids to the coaching staff and decided to throw a fight street. Drafts fail check All he would do me like chimeras not beating me. You can have everyone else on the saints. I'm not getting beat by that guy. I'm falling everywhere he goes. We're hitting him constantly. He's not beating me. Why don't teams do that with them. I don't get it okay. So first of all they have a of weapons. Thanks so she when michael. Thomas is healthy There's a lot they can do their you know. I think peter king early breakdown. His column this week about there was a play where the bucks dropped eight men into coverage and it was a weird play. They had their fullbacks put out wide and brees hit a random tight end. Adam traveling for a touchdown even throwing into eight men like that. There's just something their breezes still really really good so. I think it's a bit simplistic to say. Just take away kamara because they can do other stuff And they can. They can change their game plan so

We would have thought that would have happened by now. But there have been some delays and setbacks and and, of course, the Corona virus pandemic, But while it didn't have any people on board, it did have some payloads. Including some research that was placed outside of the booster that could be used to help the lunar lander that blue origin is developing for NASA in its quest to get back to the moon.

Very precisely on the moon on so that experiment was on board. The new Shepherd for their Askew mentioned there's 13th successful launch this morning. Well, delays and pandemics aside as you write, Lord and kind of has a motto of keeping a slow pace. Why, though they lost a contract with the Pentagon not too long ago? Well, you're right. I mean, the motto is Jeff Bezos has said that they wanted to go step by step ferociously. But there's been some criticism of the company that they've been moving too slowly at a time. When you see companies like Space six, you know, which got the orbit relatively quickly. They're flying humans. They of their first Ah, flight of NASA astronaut in May and brought them back safely a couple months later. That you know what is taking blurred and so long and they hadn't flown their new Shepherd's vehicle since December, So there was sort of a 10 month gap there, But I will tell you and I've been down to Cape Canaveral in Florida. You drive by the manufacturing facility that blue origin is building there, and it's matches. It is absolutely mind blowing. And it shows you, Jeff says. This is the most important work he's doing is working space. You think this is going to be a big part of his legacy is dedicated Tio spending a billion dollars a year of his own money into it until while they're moving slowly and deliberately. You can't bet against them. And next year could be a big year and it feels like we say that a lot In states like, but we're looking ahead at flying people for the first time in New Shepherd, they said. Today they were maybe a couple of flights away from doing that, And then they also hope to launch their new Glenn vehicle. That's the Big rocket that would eventually go to orbit.

Grown into the person and the leader that she is I mean we saw her two years ago, John Win, a US Open under controversial circumstances almost crying when she got the trophy not the happy tears by the way we saw her not comfortable in the spotlight. And we've seen her truly in this past year really just blossom into this amazing leader and I, you know I think we thought that it was possible but I didn't think at this young age in her early twenties that she would be the type of player person who would be leading our sport and it's amazing to see. We haven't had player willing to sacrifice really willing to. Do whatever necessary for the greater good and look past. Oh by tennis or my match or anything else put all of that ahead to make a bigger impact in it's amazing. I. Mean Honestly yesterday as all these stories kept coming through I was getting the chills and then she was just amazing just doesn't this is important and you know what happened. It forced that forced it allowed me to bring it up with my young kid something that maybe that I don't know what would have happened I'm talking to a six year old about why this is going on in the world and a lot of that is because of nine soccer. I think too that she had a lot of people within tennis scrambling. And someone said to me, I do radio shows lead said, well, isn't she the highest paid female athlete and Michael Do? That is like, yeah, all the more reason for her not to do like since when does that cut your way of anything that makes it all the more impressive that many business relationships that she needs to keep in mind I Did you have any insight what brought this on mean you know there's she gives it here. She's self identified. There's boyfriend there's yolks he was in Minneapolis. You any insight as to what? Spurred us. Not. Really you know I was fascinated during the pandemic lockdown about hearing in. About her going to Minnesota and being willing. To take such a strong stand honestly during a pandemic and we have so many crazy things going on right now and I was I remember thinking wow, that is really remarkable from her. And then when this all came about. You know my first reaction was well, I can't believe it, and then about five minutes later I'm like, yeah good for her and you know the the support of everybody in the tennis world from what I've seen so far at least on social media and other platforms, it's remarkable and I think that everybody knows. Now I mean we've had players in the seventies, lead us and be willing to sacrifice, and be will link to walk away and willing to fight for the greater. Good. A lot of that kind of went away and there was. All of a sudden, you get a player again that's like, nope, this is way more important than my tennis or anything else. I think that she she had the respect of everyone the tennis world she's now earned it from you know other people around the world. And all this is in the context of a major seventy, two hours away and nobody's going anywhere. Everybody's going. You've thought like give it was going to fly to a different destination I mean she's doing this when everybody is in. Lockdown Where are you? If there's a continuum here? We have this among our colleagues. Some people say, this is not this is reckless come back in twenty twenty one and other people say shows got to go on we don't even need. This bubble where are you sort of in the? Spectrum. You know when I first heard about these kind of plans these in I think it was about may of us Ta's maybe thinking about doing it in a bubble and I remember going wow, that's crazy. I can't believe that you've got all these people find him from all over the world. It's not as simple as everyone based in the states and figuring this out then each step of the way, everything nope this is going to be fine players can fly in from overseas. This is what we have organized is now hearing from players that are in this bubble for like the last two weeks hearing from people that are playing in the Cincinnati. Tournament in New York If, I were current player and I was experiencing that I don't think I'd play outside bubble now. They're talking about you know Rome minute robes out some kind of paper that going over their rules where they strongly the players don't go out to eat. Yes. That should be a rule I mean that's the kind of the behavior that could really bring down tournaments I mean unfortunately, if you WANNA play, you're going to have to really kind of be in a bubble and. You WanNa make sure everyone else around you is also though in a bubble so you don't pick it up from them or from their coach from their hidden partner from their trainer. So I think this this tournament can these tournaments continue to go through without anything crazy happening with no really positive results in the virus not spreading and then the US being able to contain it. I don't see how you don't. I. Don't see how you can play not in a bubble for the rest of of this pandemic. That's a real real reversal. I, mean it used to be I can't the USDA's being so strict and these these guidelines are oppressive. You're saying the opposite you're saying you go to Europe and these players are going to say, wait a second why are their fans walking around the grounds? That would be me and I'm obviously the eat everyone I mean we saw hal help scared to go into a bubble. So everybody has their own their own comfort level. If it were me I would not feel comfortable playing a tournament where I know that everyone could have gone out to dinner or could have gone to a nightclub and then be within six feet of me. The next day that is me so we'll see I mean in Europe, the cases went down it sounds like they're starting to pick up. Again, this virus is not going anywhere anytime soon. So to think that their past it or it's not going to happen, you can't have that mindset. You have to have the mindset if we're organizing something that it's around, how do we get? Away with not having it get into our atmosphere. It's it's a bubble life unfortunately.

Climate and Floodwaters Are Top of Mind for Some Iowa Voters
"Number one issue for Democratic voters in this presidential election season is healthcare but trailing a close second is climate change morning edition host. Rachel Martin it has been reporting an Iowa this past week ahead of the caucuses and she spent some time in the city of Davenport Mississippi River. The city was the site of record breaking floods last spring. How does the rising river in the threat from climate change affect how people vote? Here's what she found out. You talked to enough business. Owners down by Davenport's riverfront and you quickly quickly realized that pretty much. Everyone has a flood story. I got a call from my sister in law. That said I drop the kids off. I have to go downtown. The levee broke all the water started coming through the drains. And I get down here and we had four and a half feet in her basement. It was coming up to our doors and we just started sandbagging. It just caught my eye and then I went. Oh my God the weavers coming in that last voices Tim Baldwin. He owns an upscale pub right on the waterfront. Dan Bush runs another restaurant a few blocks away and we met them at low pies. Pizza joint. Andrew Lopez is the owner there. Margarita a really chill are red red sauce. It's got a really nice kick to it so you really don't need much with it. All three of these guys took a financial hit after the flood last year but they were the lucky ones. Some some of the businesses around the area had to shut their doors for good. I mean here. You are sitting couple of hundred feet away from the riverbank right over there so do just write this off or do you expect that this is going to keep happening. I think we're forced to take it seriously. That's Dan Bush. After the disaster he started a coalition of business owners to advocate for better flood. Prevention Science shows shows that this is gonNA progressively get worse uh-huh and that we actually didn't it didn't get as bad as it could have got this year The last big event was a nineteen ninety-three. Don't expect it to be another twenty five twenty seven years before it happens again affects your hearts about climate change and your political choices Andrew. I think it's a big deal and it's been getting worse and worse every year so I think it's signed the take a step forward in China or something about it. I you know I love these guys but we have a different political views. Where's the difference? Well the climate change as we hear about it every day through the national media media. I don't believe is our problem. I believe climate changing and I believe climate's been changing since the inception of this planet. Right all I know is what is obvious is to me and that is when it rains. Water has nowhere to go except to the Mississippi River but is it. Is it related to what driving cars I and eating beef. I'm not convinced of that. Damn I think this event definitely made me think more about climate than ever had in my life but Yeah I think we're at the point. Where the cause is not the conversation? It's okay we tim and I agree. It's happening now. How do we handle it? Their answers for that question are are different too. It's GonNa Shave Danny political choice this year. He says he'll caucus for Elizabeth Warren for lots of reasons including her plans to fight climate. Change Tim on the other hand and is a conservative. His primary issue isn't climate change at all it's the economy and he's voting for Donald Trump. We say our goodbyes. Then walk back along the river. We take a right near retail shops and eventually find our way to e second street where we meet any stop-loss. We've got a lot going on right now. So so that's why it's this. Andy runs trendy. Men's clothing store just a couple blocks from the river. I mean the whole community came together and it was. We were knees deep in water. I see and bagging all this area to protect you know our space power you preparing for the inevitability of it happening again. Since I've lived here we've only had one really really big flood And it was when I was young. I don't remember it so historically the are not very high but when you think of the environment the effects and everything that is included what's happening. The chances are a lot higher. Do those issues motivate you politically absolutely. She doesn't want to say who she's going to caucus for Monday but her fiance Kayla is all in for Elizabeth Warren. She's worried about our children and our children's children and what the environmental merriment earth is going to be like at that point because have kids. No we're yesterday. I got my apartment. Were Planning on it. Yeah in time a year. You're after the flood. Anne and Kayla are looking to the future like so many others. We talked with here and after tomorrow's caucuses they'll have a better idea of what that future might look like.
