Washington, DC - Two Greek Life Houses Quarantine As COVID-19 Cases Spike At University of Maryland
"Of hours until 11 p.m. Students at the University of Maryland are relegated to virtual learning right now, but that hasn't stopped Corona virus cases from climbing over the past week. Students who live in one frat house in one sorority house on the campus of the University of Maryland are now quarantining after multiple cases of Copan 19 were confirmed there in recent days. The student newspaper the Diamondbacks says the number of new cases on around campus has spiked over 400% In recent days, the positivity rate from university conducted testing a silly low 1.5. Percents. But in just four days last week, the number of students in on campus quarantine has gone from 4 to 64. Maryland has a capacity of 300 quarantine beds, and the school is still aiming to begin
"diamondbacks" Discussed on KOA 850 AM
"The Diamondbacks for the first time here in 2020 and we've talked about as we go inside the numbers here that while the Rockies will play Each member of the National League West 10 different times. It's not necessarily of 50 50 breakdown in terms of home and road games. This will be the only Home. Siri's for the Rockies against the Diamondbacks. They will play a three game Siri's in Phoenix to end the season. And they will also play the Diamondbacks in a four game set the final full week here in August in a couple of weeks, So that's one of the differences. They they do have mortgage aims. Here. It home was San Diego. And San Francisco. But for the D backs and the Dodgers, the Rockies will have them in Denver for just one Siri's out of the three. Siri's played Maybe That's not the worst thing in the world in that the Iraqis have dropped seven of their last nine games here in Denver. To the Diamondbacks. Arizona with guys like you tell Marty and others have really swung the bats well here, of course, Field Rockies are very hopeful that that trend will not continue. Here in this 2020 season. That's inside the numbers brought to us by Silver Leaf Mortgage, Colorado's number one reverse mortgage broker.

What's the Difference Between Turtles and Tortoises?
"COM welcome to brainstorm a production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff lauren. Boko bomb here at some point. Let's just say around two hundred and sixty million years ago earth got turtles. They looked strange. And these our modern mammalian times when lots of things are squishy and unarmored but during the late Permian epoch. Those early turtles were dressed in all the latest fashions. A short sturdy legs bony plates and a stiff splayed crawling strapped. Shortly after turtles made their evolutionary arrival eight fairly standard earth thing happened a mass extinction event. Although mass extinctions have happened with some regularity on our planet this one was a doozy and it wiped out almost all of the life in the oceans and over two thirds of the vertebrates on land. The things that survived had to have been pretty good at survival and it turns out turtles. Were we spoke about email with Laura Smith? A research scientist who specializes in herpetology at the Jones Center each way which is an organization in Newton Georgia that promotes excellence in natural resource management and conservation. She said turtles have a really successful body form. That hasn't changed all that much over time. They retained the primitive shell. Which is a really protective safe body design. Also turtles live in a lot of different habitats. Their aquatic and also terrestrial so living in a lot of different habitats has allowed them to persist. So what's the difference between tortoises and turtles all of the animals alive today that protect themselves with a Shell? Which is basically just a modified ribcage are in the order student. He's collectively we call this group of animals turtles but individually. We might call them different things based on where they live and some morphological and physiological traits. Tortoises are a group that are generally always found on land. Smith said they say that. Not all turtles tortoises but all tortoises are turtles be turtles are organisms with. Shell which might be in water or might be on land. A tortoise is a type of turtle in general both turtles and tortoises as well as other reptiles lay their eggs on land. It's what makes them different from Amphibians which need water for egg-laying end at least part of their life cycle because tortoises are a type of turtle. It's difficult to lay down hard and fast rules about what makes something tortoise ish rather than turtles but in general tortoises are always found on land whereas turtles can be found in aquatic or marine habitats as well as Land Smith said turtles and tortoises look different because of where they live a seat hurdle is only found in the ocean the females are the only ones that come on land and that's just eggs they have four legs but the front legs are almost like wings or paddles. They're not great for moving around on land at all because they're adapted for swimming quickly. Their shells have a low flat profile for cutting through the water. Compare that to a Galapagos Tortoise for example whose body can weigh up to nine hundred twenty pounds. That's almost four hundred twenty kilos with stocky elephantine legs a high dome. Shell and big scales on their exposed skin to protect them from predators and they wouldn't last long in the ocean but luckily they don't have to. The Smith said for the most part. There's not really one characteristic that tells you whether something is a tortoise or turtle but it's pretty clear if you see a little turtle on the side of the road and it has a sort of flattened shell profile webbed feet in the back smooth skin and some brighter colors. That's going to be a turtle tortoise. Have a heavier more dome? Shell and subdued colors as usual. The terminology can be confusing Box Turtles for instance which are widespread in the United States in Central America? And don't really swim or spend much time in the water. But they're still considered turtles rather than tortoises and then there are the terrapins. Which is the name given to aquatic turtles in the United Kingdom in the US aquatic turtles are just called hurdles with the exception of the diamondback terrapin which lives in brackish water in tidal marshes in the eastern United States? Both tortoises end hurdles have made themselves at home on this planet. We find both on every continent other than an Arctic with one exception. There are no tortoise species native to Australia. Smith said
MLB considering radical realignment for 2020 season: Grapefruit and Cactus leagues
"Bob Nightengale dropped a story this morning right now that MLB is considering a radical realignment for this summer okay if we can get going the grapefruit and cactus leagues that are spring training would become the league's we planned this year meaning all the teens who train in Arizona play in the cactus league yeah and all the teams are playing for a plan the grapefruit league and those are the real leagues this year those are the national American leagues so the cactus league division because giants Diamondbacks Rockies ETS Johnson is in the same division about that this is to keep everybody in there so it is so there's no travel yeah yeah yeah it yeah like the Florida team to stay in Florida it's easier to quarantine it's easier to not spread the Florida teams in the Arizona team standards are well yes thank yeah that's that's that's hard to even you know what honestly at this point let's go well it makes all right yeah it's hard yeah the idea of the giants the is the same divisions kind of juicy I mean maybe like let's let's go forward and having the same division all the time yeah but listen between you and me alone listening to that this could spell water losses for the two yesterday has tag match seven saves lives you know has tech has to Kevin Guzman said are you ready for bleacher Dave to be waving a highlight the same ETS fans in our diversions colors comes you wanted man we're

High-Dimensional Robust Statistics with Ilias Diakonikolas
"I'm really looking forward to diving into our discussion before we do. I love to hear a little bit about your background. Your primary research interests are in algorithms and machine learning and If the paper that we're going to discuss this time around distribution independent pack learning of half spaces with mosser noise Which one they outstanding paper award at Europe's it's any Your work is quite theoretical in nature Tell us a little about your background and how you came to working on this type of work right so I grew up in Greece. So and Bis where I did my Undergrad. I moved to Columbia University. For Grad School. My Grad school was In topic cold the theoretical computer science algorithms person and something the process. I realized that the best way to cover impact in the world if you're doing theoretical algorithm research used to actually work on algorithm questions the come from. Mossy learn against that this. Why why is that? Why is that the best place I mean? Maybe yeah maybe the phrasing is not really a good place because this is where this you know our listeners would all agree but I'm curious your thoughts thoughts so I actually started doing this before. It was popular because really I could really see that maybe not all of the theoretical algorithm but one looks some of them could be used in practice and you could see the sort of practical improvements in data analysis tasks so but like in I used to like doing a theoretical griffin. Chris just for the sake of doing it but sort of like after my fingers might the I started good ovulating towards ethical questions that if solved would actually have a product. The galleon bucked described for us. Broadly your research interests and focus so that we have a little bit of the context out of which this paper comes so I come interest within the algorithms in learning so this particular nerves paper. belongs High level which is called the high dimensional Obama's. Learning the idea. Here is that historically every machine learning algorithm needs to make some assumptions assumptions about the model where the data comes from so in some sense very roughly speaking every algorithm could could be viewed as a data fitting methods. You're trying to feed the data to model now. The issues that this assumption about the data coming from a model of a given type is very crucial so and typically do not want your algorithm to overfeed to this assumption in the says that in this assumption is that exactly through but if it's approximately through you want your algorithm to still work and unfortunately entire dimensional sailings. We realized about five years ago. This actually not the case even a very tiny deviation from the assume model could make the rub the machine learning algorithm very fragile so we in decided that okay we need to rectify his developed methodology to have robust learning algorithms for high dimensional problems. And so when you talk about high dimensional problems and perturbations are you thinking about things like the adversarial examples types of problems that we are familiar with where you've got an image high dimensional and you apply some some noise to it so that's a great question I was. I was expecting this question exactly to to throw a difference so these types of recital examples also some type of robustness the question type of buses but somewhat difference. Learn the one I'd like to discuss in particular in the certain adversary robust setting. What you have is if you train you train your network on some images right and then you perturb those images. In a way that's imperceptible to humans and see how the how the model learn performs. We have learned. That's actually under Boston. We need to do something to make it. Robust so the participations in the recital bus setting take place up test time so you train with a bunch of clean data and then you want to test on a set of corrupted data so the sending over Bosnia least with respect to this line of work is something that's called tests diamox. What you actually train on corrupting data. These two are related. So these two notions of Obama's isolated but they're also quite a bit different and you said they're called test time adapts. Yeah but the data is perturbed in training. So this is a cold time. Docs got what I'm GonNa talk about the It's called trading diamondbacks. Okay right so let me give you an example like the most basic example of that. I expect anyone could could understand with just a little bit of bug so if I give you samples like ID samples from public distribution. Like Goshen. And I ask you to find the expectation that mean value offer with distribution whatever samples. Come from let's say in in one dimension than what would you do to find the main value? Yeah you'd some them and divide by the number of samples you have. Yeah that's what that's about sir. Gold sort of empirical mean and we know that it works right. Unfortunately though if one of the summers they give you is not drawn from the distribution that you are strongly it was. It's out liar. Then the average doesn't work anymore was the betrayal far from the tool mean. It's not going to convert through mean even if you take infantryman samples. So what are we doing this case so for the one dimensional saving is known for like I duNno? Essential in statistics. So he still taking the average. You're taking staffing with the skull. The median. Okay. So we know that the media is robust to outliers and it's optimally robust for one dimensional problems right. Lie merging a generalization with this problem too high dimensions so now observing one dimensional points. You're observing high dimensional points every observation that you have is high dimensional. Let's say the dimensions and you want to do the same thing. You want to actually compute the expected value of the corresponding distribution now in the case of polling data. You will do exactly the same thing that you did. In the one dimensional case you would sam all the samples and the divide by the number of the samples so this is the umbilical meaning high dimensions and in the case of clean. Data it works. Now the difficulty is actually generalizing this dimensional and be mean when you actually have. Let's say ten percent of your of your samples being arbitrary. I would liars in this case. Unfortunately there is not an easy solution as taking the media meeting because the media in a high dimensional scenario isn't wall defined or because of the number of outliers you have. Let's these are great questions. So there are many ways to define north of a medium high dimensions for example. One thing that you could do is look at their coordinate individually and calculating the median. Coordinate and giving the dancer unfortunately this is not gonNa work they gonNA work is because you have many dimensions and in some sense. The noise can accumulate across dimensions. So if you let's say even a one percent of outliers then the answer you're going to get at. The end is going to be very large. In the worst case would actually depends on. Who would actually scale with the number of dimensions? And this is something that you can avoid. We know that you can avoid that if you look at like information theoretic bounds. But we didn't know how avoided with the computational efficient algorithm with a method that you can actually ran all right so what we did for years ago with a number of great golfers is we developed the first methods that is actually robust for estimating tied immeasurable distribution to constant number of outliers. So even if you have. Let's say twenty percent about liars and no matter. How highly dimension is the algorithm around sufficiently and gives you an accurate approximation of what's the general flavor or shape of this algorithm? I see so many versions. Maybe they easiest want is about Sort of detecting and removing the consequential outlines so we are in a high dimensional setting so the most sort of knives thing to try to do is detect out liars and remove them and after you do the venue just the output V. The men of the rest I will be the ideal methodology to solve the problem. They show is that this is impossible. We can't prove that it is impossible to actually detect the outliers in dimension setting. So what do we do so the next thing to try deuce okay? Maybe I cannot detect a remove. All the outliers. Maybe I contacted. Remove the ones that If I kept the data sets then they would actually skew the appeal coming by a lot. Turns out that this is something that you can do by using spectral move
Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner secretly competes in rodeo events
"Arizona Diamondbacks left hander Madison Bumgarner has been competing in rodeo events under the alias Mason's Saunders and even one of twenty six thousand five hundred sixty dollars and a team roping competition in December according to a story published Sunday by the athletic Bumgardner was told I told the website that he has discreetly competed in rodeos for awhile including in March of last year two days before pitching for the San Francisco Giants in a cactus league spring training game he's been roping since he was fifteen or sixteen and said he's been added so long that quote it's just part of who you are he's the twenty fourteen World Series MVP if he agreed to an eighty five million dollar five year contract with the Diamondbacks this past December and I'm sorry Courtney if I was the diamond backs I wouldn't be thrilled to find out that my ace left hander yes competing in rodeos in the offseason this is the same guy who got injured on a dirt bike do not remember that when he was with the giants and that was a serious injury that put him out for a very long time no wonder he was performing I guess you want to call that under a pseudonym or a fake name because had you found out about this the Diamondbacks might not have spent eighty eighty five million dollar a gigantic sum over a five year contract on this guy I mean it doesn't make any sense like I understand the thrill of competition and this is who we is but these risky things every sport has stuff like this written into players contracts that you cannot do I mean I always go back to when it when he got hurt in San Francisco a few years ago do you remember the month Taylor's thing when he was with the warriors he fell off the scooter when he went back to Mississippi for the offseason S. lied about it yeah that was a story that came to mind and I feel like any time something like this it comes to the light I'm not one of these people is like all the cool funny look how cute of the story is I'm like what is he thinking like you get injured and made these you know these are animals eat these things have a mind of their own they're powerful they're strong and certainly he's you know well conditioned and knows how to be around horses but you know that to me is way too big of a risk if I'm a professional athlete you know the prime of my career to take but you know he's done it before and that he is you know we don't really get that much of outside having serious injuries at receiver big penalty from the team for you know the motorbike thing according to have the details how did he come up with the alias of Mason's Saunders instead of going with you know his own name Madison Bumgarner sell it this came from directly from the athletic article that broke the story said quote if you competed as Madison Bumgarner every phone camera in the area that would have been trained on him he said so he devised Mason Saunders the surname is the maiden name of his wife Allie Mason is a shortened version for Madison and it's something allegedly his wife called him out in public so people don't recognize them so very clever I'll give him that but I don't think the whole thing is a buzz saw her story totally bizarre and the other thing is you know if this was an NBA player everybody would recognize them already because NBA players are actually recognizable it just goes to show you how anonymous baseball players are that the most clutch postseason pitcher maybe of all time can compete in rodeos and nappy racket I think what I know it's wild lake in the in the fact is here like he continues to go what do these very risky things it just doesn't seem to care yeah if you get caught I mean there's the photo in that athletic article where he's smiling and you know he's with I guess that it's a two person thing that team roping so I hope twenty six thousand dollars I hope that Madison Bumgarner did not keep that for myself given the gigantic contract he just signed in December the but yeah he looks he's not there we is in this picture I mean I just think it's hilarious how almost incognito so many baseball players can live their lives in that matter just because they blend in because they're not these gigantic athletes by and large I mean they're not six eight or you know they don't think Shaquille o'neal out there everybody would be able to tell if you're you know for the most part with NBA athletes I just don't understand why when you have hit the genetic lottery anyway to be able to throw the ball a hundred miles an hour the end and to be able to make eighty six million dollars really it's more than that doing this why you would ever risk your body or put like what your fans in your organization is rooting for on the line so recklessly and you pointed out he already ruined the giants season aired my fantasy baseball season which is far more important Courtney by falling off of that dirt bike a couple years ago and here he is I guess he says I'm just going to live my life and Diamondbacks GM Mike Hazen told the athletic that quote he was not going to get into discussing specific contract language but you pointed this out that we know the player contracts have I can't imagine that the Diamondbacks are cool with their ace pitcher also being a rodeo road being a cowboy literally let alone they don't want to be a Dallas cowboy let alone in being a literal cowboy well I just remember a couple years ago at the end I felt combine whistle and was talking to Mike Zimmer about you know the quarterback situation at that point he had said that Sam Bradford had a degenerative knee I come to find out later that offseason I was speaking with Kyle Rudolph who said that he went skiing with Sam Bradford that off season right around the time of the combine so I'm thinking to myself you are here you are a health concern and you're going skiing or you could very easily risk tearing your ACL for a third time and you already had your season cut short because of injury like I wonder if these guys just do it for the thrill or maybe they just don't care because they have ungodly amounts of money to begin with if they feel like they can the kind of invincible they can do whatever they want but you do wonder like this has to be in contract language if you cannot do things like this because we know across sports there's certain things you're just not able to do I it's a liability reasons you ever been to a rodeo Courtney I half I went Mississippi when I work down there the show but county fair rodeo I've been to the Cheyenne frontier days shout out if you're listening in Cheyenne Wyoming on the ESPN radio affiliate there I gotta tell you it's oddly it is oddly entertaining but the the thrill of it is almost that you think that the that the ball right is just going to charge and block these cowboys into next year it is one of the most dangerous things I have ever seen and I never in my life once thought you know what it be cool to jump in there with these bowls and try to try this on for for my but how do you even practice you know you kind of just have to get in there and and take it on right yeah I guess I guess so what I mean I've seen the photos of Madison Bumgarner I'd taken the horse around the warning track at AT&T park when he was still a giant I just think that that's who he is this is got this guy is a country bumpkin at heart from North Carolina and I I just think that he grew up this way and it's always gonna be a part of him so he feels like Hey I'm an able bodied individual and I also have more money than anybody at this rodeo thing I'm gonna do what I want and it's somebody else take issue with it I'm sure they actually would found out about it right now well look I know why it's so good in the clutch in game seven of the World Series because if that that's nothing compared to facing down the eyes of a bull
Not his first rodeo: Bumgarner admits to roping under alias
"Joe Hughes is here with the secret identity of a former giants yeah pitching is just what former giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner does for a living what he does for fun that's rodeo we see Madison Bumgarner riding a horse at oracle park will celebrating the giants twenty fourteen World Series title but on Sunday we learned in a report from the athletic that Bumgarner spent part of his offseason competing any team roping competition under the alias Mason Saunders it turns out it's been something that he's been doing for awhile and he's been using the nickname is a way of keeping his exploits from spilling on to the larger baseball community fearing blowback from his employers in Major League Baseball the bomber to confirmed in an interview on Sunday that he came up with the name Saunders from his wife's maiden name and Mason was simply a shortened version of Madison he sent a five year eighty five million dollar contract with the Dodgers the Diamondbacks this winter the rodeo competition came up while Bumgarner was still a free agent back in December but he's also reportedly competed in similar events in spring training including one well he was still with the giants last spring before playing against the ace he says he's not trained to split his time between rodeo in baseball but at least not under the name Mason Saunders

We'll take on Alex. Young Tuesday scheduled starters Jack Flaherty and former Cardinal Mike leak and for Wednesday afternoons finale Michael Waka and Merrill. Oh Kelly the cardinals continued to roll and are at a season best twenty two games above five hundred the redbirds record eighty nine and sixty eighty seven and we had to Arizona right now to preview the series with Mike Farren of diamondbacks radio also MLB network radio on Sirius Xm. You can follow. Oh Him on twitter at Mike Underscore Farren Mike what's going on. I Chris. I'm looking forward to seeing the cardinals. Boy Lots changed since he also bring a team is rolling a lot has changed changed since the all-star break a lot has changed since we saw the diamondbacks in Saint Louis Cardinals and I'm wondering first from your vantage pointed diamondbacks team and really a big chunk of the NFL was kind of hanging around in the wild card race for quite some time. What's the last month or so. What's the story been for Arizona Zona. Since we saw you guys in San Luis well I mean they got on a really good run at the end of August and into the first week in September and then you know boss lead against Cincinnati Cincinnati and gets four games set in New York and that's where really set them back. you know it was a team that had you know made some trains at the deadline that were interesting interesting and that they added a couple of starting pitchers that gallon former cardinal prospect and Mike leak blew fits pretty well leaks numbers all great overall but his last four or five starts at an excellent uh-huh and they traded away which allow them to free up some money and one of the players. I got back. Josh Ross is just pretty much mandalay field since since ideal provide you two weeks after that when they got caught some AAA Reno so It's been a team that I think has exceeded a lot of expectations this year. I don't think many people thought very highly of the diamondbacks coming into the year I think that they felt like they had a chance to least replicate last year's eighty to eighty record and and do maybe a little differently and I think with eighty winds right now are pretty good pace to maybe even exceed that with with three left against the Padre still after the cardinal series so it's a transition Russian year but it's one that were they were surprisingly competitive and a lot of people's minds and I think they're set up for a very interesting winter and and you know intriguing twenty twenty you know from just a storyline stamp point for me personally and I'm sure cardinal fans it was great to see Luke Weaver. Get back on the mound for the the diamondbacks over the weekend on Saturday two scoreless innings through just nineteen pitches first time that he's been on a big mound since May and I'm wondering just what you have seen or what you have learned about Luke in the short time that he's been a member of the organization Mike I know maybe a frustrating injury for for him this year but hard to work your way back at this time of year with with no minor league games to play in a what it was an what it meant for Luke and and maybe as well for the Organization Organization to get him in a game yesterday and maybe build some momentum towards the off season next year. I think I think this comeback. This season speaks a lot to Luke's workout got back and I think that's what stands out to talking to somebody who in the organization who said listen to this wasn't something good we were pushing for. This was luke wanted to do this. He we really really crushed the Rehab for you know what was a you know a flexor tendon and a UCLA issue and there were minor enough that they that no doctor recall recommended surgery but when you're talking about the money maker for a pitcher it's still going to be a little bit scary and I think that's the biggest thing that we've learned is about him. Is Your Yeah. His competitiveness is work ethic He's a very good pitcher. He's made a couple of adjustments. You know he invested on his own some of the technology with available now for pitchers this twitter to try and help refine his secondary pitches a little bit better and I think you saw a little bit more consistent Kerala and cutter this year you know still fastball fastball changeup says moneymakers and I just think it's you know it was a real positive. Step forward the fact that they got him onto a mound. If he's healthy and you know there's every indication to believe that he is going to be healthy going into twenty twenty Qian Gallon together or a very very good young duo that get help to anchor the rotation for the next several years yes so weaver of course part of the package for Paul Goldschmidt and I read kind of an interesting gene column in the Arizona Republic by Greg more that essentially said the diamondbacks should focus on ruining the post. Oh season for Paul Goldschmidt and making sure that he has to watch at home is there resentment in Arizona towards Goldschmidt getting treated like and the way you and I talked about it like my toilet like they drove personally to Gold Schmitt's hometown.
