Biden says Inauguration Day events may look different due to pandemic

"Events down in Wilmington, with President elect Biden, saying that the most recent jobs report is dire. Mr Biden says there is no time to lose this. Millions of people lose their jobs or see their incomes slashed. He is calling on Congress to pass an economic stimulus bill now With even more funding later. What W spat Low covering the incoming president in Wilmington, Mr Biden says he knows people are skeptical when he says he can get bipartisan cooperation. But the $900 million aid package, which he hinted he'd had a hand in shows Congress can work together. Any package passed in the lame duck session is not gonna be enough overall is critical, but it's just a start. President elect said he'd be asking for funding for testing vaccines and economic relief to get the country through 2021 in response to questions, he said he didn't think the vaccine should be mandatory, but that the public would have confidence in it when they saw him and he said three ex presidents getting it. He said his 100 days of mask wearing wouldn't be mandatory, either just a patriotic request in his inaugural speech. Which he said would not look like past inaugurations. Gonna follow again the science time keeping people safe, So it is highly unlikely Toby a million people on the mall. He also pretty much ruled out a parade. But he said he thinks it's important to celebrate that the event might look more like the Democratic Convention, which was almost fully virtual in moment. And Pat Lo que y W. NewsRadio.

Coronavirus Stimulus Talks Moving in Right Direction, Party Leaders Say

"This morning Democrats getting behind a scaled back stimulus toe. Try to restart talks for more. We're joined by Brown University Political science chair Wendy Schiller, professor Good to have you on with us this morning of morning where it seems like stimulus hopes. Spring eternal. But how much hope do you put in Speaker Pelosi in minority leader Schumer backing this bipartisan legislation that was worth about $900 billion it was put forward this week. Good morning, agent. Well, I mean, I think that they recognize that the you know the whole country is being hit really hard by this, but that they're the areas that are you know, traditional sport of Democrats are getting hit again really hard, and they had wanted direct aid for states and cities. They couldn't get it from Trump. They're not going to get from Senate Republicans. So basically someone like Durban and represents Illinois Big City like Chicago has to make a decision system Majority Minority Leader and them hard party and say, all right, we gotta get something you know if we you know, we especially unemployment, either top off or extension or some combination of those things on. I think the Democrats want to get what they can and not turn this into the first battle that Biden have the face once he's inaugurated. Is this about the pandemic, getting to the level that it's at now? Or is this a dose of political reality, given how the election turned out for the house, particularly with Democrats losing seats in November? I do think that the Democrats are not looking at a scenario that they hope to be looking at come January, which was a majority Democratic Senate and then picking up more seats in the house, where they could really, you know, right from ticket with Biden, so given that that's out the window. Even if the Democrats take one or two of US Georgia seats that's still not really a likely scenario you can control the Senate, barely. I have a very razor thin margin in the house now for the Democrats, So yeah, it's a political reality. But I think it's also about what they hope Biden can achieve What becomes president and taking one really big thing off the table before he starts that job, and I think that's a big incentive for them because then they could turn to things like infrastructure, which would also help the economy. Well, what's your sense of what President Biden could achieve. Given the realities of what Senate control is gonna look like either way, depending on how the Georgia run offs turned out, it's going to be a razor thin margin, no matter which way you slice it, and the president elect has said. Whatever gets past if something gets past, but during this lame duck session is going to be a down payment. For something much bigger. Well, right. I mean, this is what you know. Obama wanted a much bigger stimulus than he got in 2009 as well, and he had all three chambers. It's a very hard thing, particularly with it, you know, $3 trillion deficit and rising. So I mean, I just think one of the key factors. Both parties were looking at Tau look towards 2022. Because that's where both parties are looking right now, at least in the Congress side is that suburban voters were willing to split their ticket. And very noticeable voted Republican straight down the line voted for Joe Biden and maybe because it in like Trump. We don't know for sure, but they were willing to do that and then vote for Republicans in other offices, knowing that they're willing to do that means that they're up for Gramps, and I think that's the serve Achilles heel for the Republicans in blocking everything for Biden. I don't think they think they can do that and still safely hold onto the seats they want to defend in 2022, so that's where Biden and the Democrats have a bit of a bargaining advantage. In trying to get moderate proposal through that will help Cove it will help the economy will make suburban voters happy. I'm curious to get your take on how Biden has been starting to fill out his cabinet. Now. There are reports that he plans to announce his health team next week, and one of the names were hearing for health and human services. Secretary is someone that you're familiar with in your home state of Rhode Island Governor Gina Rowe Mondo That Gina Romano has done in an outstanding job in a very small state, but a very, very heavily densely populated state. So she's been dealing with sort of a big outbreak for a long time It subsided. Then it came back. She's been excellent communications and made some missteps very early on in terms of summer management with nursing homes, as other governors did, but generally speaking, has had very high approval ratings and has been thought to make this situation much better than it would have. Then, so she shown leadership in a very stressful time, And she's also communicated really well about why she's doing what she's doing. And I think any pick for HHS secretary has to be an excellent communicator because you have to basically explain the American people why we're doing what we're doing, and when we're doing it, and she's been doing that so consistently, and then it helps bring her state's not complete compliance. Bring her state along in a way that's been relatively successful. Are you surprised at all that, at least so far, we haven't heard any names of Democratic primary opponents on any of Biden's Cabinet shortlists. Well, he can't take. I mean, really. He just can't take anybody out of the Senate. Right? So that takes worn out that takes Sanders out. I know Sanders. People are very disappointed about that on. I think that's what Bernie was hoping for debris Sanders was hoping for, but you just can't take a Democrat out of the Senate. Even the Democratic government still can't do it right now, so that makes sense to me. I think people usually think people wanted him to get something he may still get something There's been talk about veterans affairs. But remember, you know, the Republicans have been relatively accepted to buy these choices so far, except for one choice. Neera Tanden for O M B. I think that's going to hit some some bumps along the way. Probably big bumps. But generally speaking, he wants a smooth Cabinet confirmations, You know process. So anybody who's super politicized more to the left of Biden for a top job. It's just probably out of the question, given the composition of the Senate. Only about 30 seconds left here. Do you think Attorney General Bar is on borrowed time after the voter fraud allegations from President Trump? I think during her borrow, looked ahead to the future and decided does he want to leave the Trump administration with any shred of credibility? And I think this move was designed to show that he wouldn't be try to leave with credibility and confirm the election knowing he's gonna leave anyway. And, you know, thinking about what's next so that he gets fired doesn't get fired. I think what he did was forward thinking for him. Not Miss Ellie and President Trump.

"I'm neat and i'm taraji. And today's driver is were not the co host of the ticket. Podcast and she is originally from and she's lived three years in the us before moving to canada where she's been for two years and she shares with us the differences she has seen driving in israel versus driving in north america. Welcome or not. Thanks so much for joining us today. Thank you and buffoni for inviting me. We liked starting off with this question because we like to go straight into the crazy before we dive into what type of driver you are. So what would you say is one of your craziest driving stories. Oh so i have a story. Or i wasn't a driver by i was riding on form by four in the lower. The uni in bolivia we were may be for france and we. We had a driver and cook and it's riser was driving in the seller. Salardu unit is Salt desert so it's a big surface off desert which is just made of salt and the driver was adjust. He navigated with no roads on or anything and one time we so tax on the road and the driver was approaching them very very slowly. Be an added. The back without Is so considerate. He doesn't want to frighten the dax but then when he got close to them you started to drive really fast and any coat one dark and he give the cook the dock and he said she's gonna make that for dinner and it was. I'm not sure it's funny. Maybe it's kinda freer carry kind of funny and but it was definitely experience that the i remember well. Do you stop the car with you in it to get the duck. Yes i stopped the car. He pulls the dock caught him on his neck. And just give it to the cook. I think because his wife and it was kind of Multiple day. I don't remember three or four days trip. And we had we had meals during the that's rape and the wife just cooked food for us and no one from my group a dinner that night at least knock back. That's that's hilarious. I mean what a surprising. Turn of events like oh. He's so nice. Oh no he's going to eat it. Yeah yeah it was really surprising. How is it driving on a desert compared to like just driving on the road we were wondering how did he navigate. Because it's really. It has a lot of mean i mean. It's very big dessert. Like think about that. We drove their into desert for a few days. So i'm not sure how big it is but it's really big so we were wondering how he navigated and how he couldn't find all the things that we saw the way because there were like lakes in different colors like amoroso lake and red lake and they were keno obnoxious that he showed us em and there were. There was a village in that word. The places that we slept in slept now like assault motel so we were wondering. How did he manage to find. All the stinks. Because if if you look all around you you just see white surface so you don't really see any reference point to help you navigate and there were no roads on their on the desert. Yeah that's what. I was wondering like everything's way. How do you know where you're going. I would end up like back at your starting point. It's like oh how they get here. Yeah it's a good good question. Yeah we wouldn't be able to do it by ourselves. Or i feel like i would get lost in the be stuck in the middle of nowhere and be like. Oh now so. I know like a lot of other countries outside the. Us tend to have. I feel like. I've heard that they tend to have more crazier drivers in bolivia. Did they. like. I guess abide by driving traffic laws or did they kind of just speed and do whatever they wanted to do. So in the salt desert most of the times. We didn't see anyone around now. The other places of been to in bolivia are easier a small towns or a big city. And i guess s most places have been to that. The drivers in the big city are more careless. I think more maura beeping and thanks dad. You have mentioned that you have lived in three different countries. What one

Fed and Treasury urge Congress to act now on virus relief

"Ranking member McHenry and members of the committee. I'm pleased to join you today to discuss the Department of Treasuries unprecedented response to support the American people throughout the pandemic. We continue to work to implement the historic cares act with speed, efficiency and transparency, But our job will not be complete until we get every American back to work. When I last testified before you in September, I stated that America was in the midst of the fastest economic recovery from any crisis. I'm proud to say. While there is still a lot more work to be done, that statement is true. In the third quarter, GDP grew by 33% annually, beating all expectations and a previous record of 1950 Americans are getting back to work. The October jobs report should the economy gained back 12 million jobs since April, more than 50% of old jobs lost due to the pandemic. The unemployment rate has decreased to 6.9% rate not expected by the blue chip to be achieved. Till the fourth quarter of 2021, the historic bipartisan care, Zack provided the economic relief that is critical to supporting the economy. Recovering. Additional economic slowdowns, however, continued to impair and cause great harm to American business and workers. Based upon the recent economic data, I continue to believe that a targeted fiscal package is the most appropriate federal response. I strongly encourage Congress to use the 400 55 billion and unused funds from the cares act to pass an additional bill with bipartisan support. The P P P has unused money of $140 billion that could be sent out the door immediately to support many small businesses. The administration is standing ready to support Congress in this effort to help American workers and small business that continue to struggle with the impact of covert 19 Charger has been working hard to implement the cares acting a transplant.

We've also divide It's significant resources to responding to enquiries from numerous congressional committees and individual members on both sides.

This was not a political decision. I was merely implementing the cares act. I'm happy to walk you, your staff or other members of the committee through section 40 29, which makes it very clear. I find it implausible that any member of the committee believed in voting for the cares act that you are authorizing me to invest $500 billion in Federal reserve facilities to make loans and purchase corporate bonds in perpetuity. With no expiration date. That is exactly What you would have to believe. If you disagree with my interpretation of congressional intent on the issue, and since I was personally there and negotiated most of these documents, I am very familiar.

Tahinis Restaurants Puts It's Entire Cash Reserves Into Bitcoin

"I think is this. Is chris coney speaking welcome back so you guys might have seen michael salo over the news media outlets recently. The ceo micro strategy You might be familiar with this already. So i'm not going to reiterate. The whole thing is about micro strategy put in most of that corporate cash reserves into bitcoin and then they make a business case for that so yes. We all familiar with that. We were just waiting for that first. Domino to start hitting and snowballing to other companies which is now happening. I was just browsing the old twitter as i do and chemicals this tweet from to heaney's restaurants who basically have just done the same thing and they have this tweet storms. I'm going to read out to you as to why they've done. What's microsoft's don as well now to heaney's restaurants. I've never headed them. But as far as i can tell. A canadian based company is a franchise of mediterranean restaurants. So that we go thus thus who. Who's talking here. So if you want to follow these guys check the tweets out. It's at the real to heaney's which ta h- h. I n i s to heaney's the real to heaney's that's the twitter handle so check this out. This is from the first of december. This was yesterday at five pm. Uk time so it says we converted our entire reserves to bitcoin in august. Twenty twenty. and since then we've been ridiculed and cold irresponsible fools in our community our reserves in dollah. Tam's doubled since then. Here's why we continue to buy bitcoin forever. Time for a threat. So festival says right that they did in august. Why is it took me this long to hear about it. Have you guys head about this already. Let me know if you already had about this book. This is the first. I've heard about it. And that's what august. September october november four five months ago. They did this. Maybe they just didn't say anything and didn't wanna say anything but it sounds like 'cause we've been ridiculed for it. Well they must've told somebody that follow is all the clients customers knew about it but i didn't say that we got so he goes the tweet storm the first thing they say is our current macroeconomic environment implies that there's going to be a ten to fifteen percent expansion twala monetary supply every year for the next three to five years in breakfast or more assets are going to inflate. Bitcoin is digital gold. And it's going to have the highest real yield because tween You can't pick any more of it old. The other investments are overvalued trades bonds our ethical stocks are grossly valued. Gold is a shitty says shitty store value that debases by two percent a year. Gold is a twenty twenty scam. You'll see governments and institutions pumping it to dump on retail investors who are misinformed because bitcoin is a thousand times better across all aspects. All these investments have some upside and more downside. In our opinion there is no way for the average person to get an etch. Bitcoin hasn't asymmetric proposition. You can get an edge here because it has a history that scared most people away. It hasn't been embraced by all the institutional community. That's changing fast. Now if you confront run this will this shift. Then you have an edge. It's being traditionally difficult to buy an old people can't pick up the phone and buy it if you go through the trouble of how to acquire insecure. It's that will give you an edge. It has all the technology upside of apple. Google facebook and amazon combined from a decade ago. And you saw what they did over the last decade. I get tweet namik says bitcoin is the so. That's a that's a combination. The fast fiber didn't i didn't segment in the b- go twenty six as they go on. Bitcoin is the successful successful digital monetary network. If you come into it right now you'll coming in at least so you're coming in at three hundred and fifty billion market cap. And it's unstoppable at this point so it makes sense to be at the ailey to this threat. Trend bowed pony trend. No threat as the price goes up. The value of the offering goes up because liquidity is the value proposition. This is an example of something where the higher the price the mo- value. We get the more people want to have it. And the more robust against this is not true with a stock as the price of a stock goes up it dilemma from its cash flow and it's p. price-to-earnings ratio goes from twenty to forty to sixty to a hundred as with many things as the price goes up. The risk gets higher with bitcoin. As the price goes up the gets lower. It's such a simple beautifully engineered. Winder that doesn't have all the competitive risks that so many other things have because it is so very simple is just twenty one million gold coins in cyberspace which divide all of the competitors. Bitcoin is the winner. They go on by one or a fraction of one and as people adopt the network value proposition increases as the technology gets better. The value proposition increases and his people like get more productive. They'll swap more cash flows into it and the value proposition increases. They go on to say and essential banks print more money. The value proposition increases again. That's just an elevator pitch. The bitcoin rabbit hole goes a lot deeper. If you're interested dilemma. Let us know we would like to thank the cyber hornets. The honey badges the huddle as the maximalists the developers and the good economists without them we would still be in the duck. Educate yourself look is when knowledge meets opportunity also followers for some amazing content. So they we got. They don't specify in this tweet stone. Exactly how much money into has millions of dollars they put into. Bitcoin as reserves micro strategy did actually say how much they put in. All this says in the fest we is. We've converted our entire reserves to bitcoin. So you know. One hundred percent of their reserves. So i suppose that means more doesn't it. What proportion of the company's assets will preserve the cash reserves. They put into bitcoin not the amount. 'cause if micro strategy said we've bought five hundred million dollars worth of bitcoin and that was only ten or twenty percent of their their reserves. It would make me less than putting all right. So i think that's a good metric. What proportion of the companies reserves not. How much money do they invest in it. Because that's more this objective risk that the company is taking rather than the objective value placed on the stack of money right so that we got restaurants the next company to put all of the business currency reserves into bitcoin. Who's going to be next. Who do you think's going to be next. Let me know.

But not with Senate Republicans. At the start of this crisis, Democrats came together in a flurry of negotiations. I was thickly involved in them with Secretary Mnuchin. To pass a bill that truly met the moment. Now we're about to reach a new, more difficult stage of the crisis. We need to renew that spirit that urgency that bipartisanship.

Moderna to seek FDA emergency authorization for COVID-19 vaccine

"We're hurtling toward. What may well be a horrible and deadly holiday season as cova cases numbers and hospitalizations. Continue to reach alarming highs over ninety thousand. People are currently hospitalized in the us according to the cova tracking project that's compared to the previous high of about sixty thousand in the spring and summer. So more by half just terrifying. We're also moving quickly towards something that looks like hope to vaccines yesterday. Dern submitted its vaccine for fda authorization aaron. What's the latest on that. Well akilah thanks to the incredible work of scientists and researchers. We've now got to vaccines that. Could start to be distributed to americans within days or weeks maderna's mentioned and pfizer which submitted a couple of weeks ago. As soon as the fda reviews and approves either one for emergency use people can start lining up to get poked. Yeah i am also in line to get poked but as you've been talking about on the show with this first round vaccines were not going to have enough for everybody all at once and we don't have one official plan for who gets to be at the front of the line. That's why the cdc's advisory committee on immunization practices or ac ip is having an emergency meeting today hammer out some guidelines for states on who gets there. Kobe shot i. Yeah so what do we know about their thinking. Well much to the chagrin of the kardashians in everybody who would love to feel just a little more normal by having a massless dance party on a private island. The vaccine will not be distributed based on how many instagram followers. You have or even whether your father invented the toaster strudel I'm really bummed. I that's my dad. I know. I know grudging wieners. The has already decided that the first people in line should be healthcare workers and people who live in long term care facilities like nursing homes according to dr kathleen dueling medical officer at the cdc staff and residents at these facilities have accounted for almost forty percent of all deaths from covid nineteen even though there are less than one percent of the total us population if you add healthcare workers and people who live and work at long term care facilities. That's about twenty four million people even with fda approval and firing on all cylinders. There will only be about forty million vaccine doses available by the end of this godforsaken year and both cohen. Vaccines require two shots. Which means that those forty million doses will be barely enough to meet the needs of the very neediest in this group. Yeah and then. It starts to get a little bit trickier when you get into the other. Essential workers and people with high risk medical conditions. Or you know older people right. So according to the cdc there about eighty seven million essential workers one hundred million high risk adults and fifty three million people sixty five years of age or older. And of course there's some overlap between these categories. These are the people that would be prioritized next but as you can see there are a lot of them if all goes well you could see fifty million more doses ready to go in january another sixty million in february or march doing math divided by to carry the one that means about seventy five million people could be vaccinated against covid nineteen by the end of the first quarter of twenty twenty one which means the more people who are at an elevated risk from covid. Then there will be vaccines and there will not be enough vaccines to reach herd immunity at first and it's going to be a while before we get there and so this is just guidance. According to current lame duck secretary of health and human services. Alex as our love connick guy. Lame duck state governments will ultimately determine how the vaccine will be distributed. But who knows if that assertion will hold after biden takes office on january twentieth knows. Well it's a little bit of an elephant in the room. Here you know. America has a long history of ignoring the needs of and in some cases actively hurting the health of marginalized groups like indigenous americans living on reservations. Black people hello Non native english speakers people experiencing homelessness and the mentally ill among other groups. So how can we be sure that the cova vaccine will just pass them over. That's a really important question akilah. I'm sure there are already rich and powerful people trying to figure out how to skip the line. There's nothing more american than that but the acp seems determined to make sure americans have faith in the fairness of this process. All of their meetings are live streamed. So if you're looking for something to do today you can go ahead and livestream. The meeting in all the votes are public. The fda has also having meetings on vaccines on december tenth and seventeenth. This whole process depends on the public trusting the vaccine enough to let somebody shoot two doses of it into their arms and it seems like so far at least the folks in charge are taking that responsibility seriously and all this is happening with derna advisor will still be gathering more data and monitoring for adverse effects as the first groups of people get vaccinated and then the companies will have to go through the normal. Fda approval process as well. This first round of approval is a fast track process. So getting back to normal isn't site kind of if you squint. It's not that far. It's right there it's kind of kind of. Let's put it this way between now and when everybody who needs to be vaccinated is vaccinated. You'll definitely have time to relearn that foreign language tried to learn in high school and if mostly forgotten about by now

How I Wrote My Book 'HTML and CSS: Visual QuickStart Guide 9th Edition' with Joe Casabona

"I was honored to write for for peach pit because all of the books i bought That taught me web development. Where peach pit books So i was like in the ranks of people. Dan cedar home Which is amazing so Anyway i reached out to them to see if they'd like to do a second edition of responsive design with wordpress but they told me the book was going out of print apparently People don't buy that many wordpress development books i guess they looked to other online resources for that. But my editor my publisher. They offered me an alternative to rewrite from. Scratch the ninth edition of each tim allen. Css visual quickstart guide And i was really excited about this in. Html and css book has a much broader appeal to than than a advanced wordpress development book plus for a while i taught html and css at the university of scranton. And i used a book. But i thought man. I could update This classic textbook right. it's a popular. I mean a book doesn't get to nine editions without being popular right So i could update this popular classic textbook to fit today's students and one of the reasons my editor wanted to go with me or thought about me was i also make online courses. And now they're they're quickstart guides and and some of their other books come with a video section right away edition and videos for the course so i could tackle more interesting contests concepts and do more of a show and tell that might be easier than you know going in describing a a big long process with words so i agreed and then we had to get into a couple of things before i could actually start writing. The first is for many publishing companies or for many content creation companies really The original author is generally offered first right of refusal. So that means in order for me to rewrite this same title from scratch They would have to go to the previous author and get their approval or their refusal really so they had to offer the previous author the the opportunity to rewrite the book straight because a couple of things are happening here first of all. If i wasn't writing it from scratch the way the royalties are setup. Is i would essentially split royalties with the original author if i was just working off his or her work. If i'm writing it from scratch that means now that the author is forfeiting any any royalties for for later editions. If people still buy the eighth edition he or she gets royalties. But the ninth edition. They don't get royalties because again. I started it from scratch and the previous author did not want to do the ninth edition. So we we proceeded from there. I had to do a proposal at that point Because i was working off of an eighth edition. I had a general idea of what i was going to be writing but it. But you know my my editorial team kind of said you know making your own But i had to justify reasons why was going to write this book so You know. I touched on the important parts like the huge changes that have happened since twenty twelve in the in the web development space in both html ncis s in the browser space There's been a big focus again on performance on Accessibility and things like that. And i wanted to touch on those things in the book as well so There was a lot to cover. I also look at the competition now. The main competition and the book that i taught from when i was teaching at the university of scranton was actually html nc s by john. Duck it. i think. That's a really nice visual book It's definitely what. I what. I've come to learn a in writing. My book is that it's definitely more of a teacher's aide in my opinion. I think it's more of a teacher's aide than it is a. I'm a person who wants to be self taught because yes there are a lot of graphics and explains things really nice but there aren't deep explanations in it. I think. I i think in this book my book. I do some more explanation. Mostly thanks to my editor but So that was that was the first process or that was the first step right get approval from the previous author and then create a proposal and outline

New rule could allow gas, firing squads for US executions

"An amended rule published in the Federal Register means the justice department is quietly amending its execution protocols it means federal death sentences will no longer be required to be carried out by lethal injection and allows the government to use any other manner prescribed by the law of the state in which the sentence was imposed the death penalty information center says lethal injection still the most widely used method but some states to authorize electrocution expectation by nitrogen gas the gas chamber hanging and firing squad the rule goes into effect in late December and comes as the justice department has scheduled five executions during the lame duck period the change is likely to set off criticism from anti death penalty advocates Jennifer king Washington

Investing in Bitcoin

"All right we are joined today by zach. Prince and ceo of block fight zach. Thank you so much for coming on today. Guys them so pumped to be here. I listened to your show every week for the first time. I've been nervous to go on a podcast public speaking in a while. Because i'm just so happy to be herbs so excited to be the first guest talking about cryptocurrency on the animal spirits. Podcast i think is a longtime Well thank you for saying that. We are excited as well. We actually started this pocket. And i were just talking about this in november twenty seventeen so right into the teeth of bitcoin mania and we'll get into two point out. I don't think it's quite the say manic fever that we saw in december twenty seventeen. But why don't we just start off briefly for those who don't know anything about you. Give us a quick introduction. Who are you zach. The founder and ceo blocked by. I grew up in texas. I was always kind of an entrepreneurial slash math in finance minded kid. I guess i actually put myself through college as a semi professional online poker player so unlike a lot of folks are generation unfortunate to not be carrying a big amount of college debt. I always wanted to work in the financial services industry. But i finished school in may of two thousand nine so i ended up working in an advertising technology startup that was ultimately a really successful venture. We got acquired by google. I spend a little bit of time at google but learned that. I really enjoyed building things and being at smaller companies left google to start another ad tech business that got acquired and then more recently and most relevant for blocked by i was working in the fintech sector specifically the online lending side of fintech. So there was a big boom in that industry appear to peer lending online lending and alternative investing and i worked at one of the companies. That was the biggest aggregation of data provider of technology solutions to institutional investment firms that were participating in that asset class. When i was doing nat i became kind of like the fintech guy within my friend group and i started writing a blog which i don't think rather i just i didn't stay with it as well as the Clogs and built up a readership but writing. This blog is what led me to discover bitcoin for the first time back in twenty fourteen and one of the things that struck me about it initially was a lot of what happens in fintech is just a new front end on top of the traditional financial system. So you're doing something that banks already do but you're doing it with a mobile app with a much better user experience and it's faster and easier. You don't have to go onto a branch when i learned about big like. Wow this is something truly different. You've got a brand new asset built on top of payment network where i can move something around the world. Twenty four seven and it's not using any part of the traditional financial ecosystem. So i was screaming to no one on this blog and twenty fourteen. I think you should be taking a flyer on bitcoin. Maybe it goes to zero. But with a little bit of capital you should be investing in it and then from there kind of slowly and steadily went down. What people in the crypto currency industry referred to as the rabbit hole and ended up starting block five around the same time. You'll start started this podcasts. In the fall of two thousand seventeen to before we get into what blocked by does specifically. How do you explain bitcoin. Someone who thinks they know what it means or has no idea in is never really entered. This base of workers obviously digital ledger been well. I mean i think one of the actual biggest positives about bitcoin. The fact that the narrative seems to change so many times over the years. But how do you explain it to someone who doesn't really know what it is one of the things. I like to start with when i'm explaining bitcoin. People is the best analogy and kind of story. That i've ever heard demystified a little bit and the story is actually about the platypus. So back in the sixteen hundreds explorers from europe. We're going all around the world. They got australia. They found the platypus and they sent some specimens back to europe on the ship and the scientists back in europe rigidly thought. They were playing twisted joke on them. And they're like this animal can't be real. You stapled together a duck in beaver and you're telling us this thing lays eggs like there's no way this is a real animal. It took the scientific community about fifty years to actually accept. The planet was a real animal. Create a little part of the animal classification kingdom that incorporated the platypus. Another funky animals like it but the platypus was very real and the problem that bitcoin is had is kind of this platypus problem in the traditional financial services industry. Where is it. A currency is it. An asset is it. A commodity is security is at a payment network. Well it's not really any one of those things in a silo. It's a little bit of all those things and it's something completely new but it definitely exists and the reaction from votes whether it's jamie diamond or others who are now coming around to it but back in twenty seventeen. They were saying bitcoin fraud. It's a scam. It's only used by folks who are doing illegal activities. Those types of things come from a position of not actually understanding.

Apple reportedly steps up effort to build Google search alternative

Apple reportedly steps up effort to build Google search alternative

"Financial times ran a piece saying that apple is working on an alternative to Google search an interesting story. It's an interesting idea. According to the paper apple is stepping up efforts to develop its own search technology as us anti-trust authorities threatened multibillion dollar payments multibillion dollar payments. Google makes secure prime placement of its engine on the iphone already. There's so much about this story that's fascinating to me. It looks like first of all apple. Search engine is already running. Although it's not really a search engine exactly. The financial times says when people type in request for info from the home screen in iowa. Fourteen apple has started showing its own search results looking directly to websites rather than going through a third party in iowa. Fourteen today view. The report says the operating system shows apple generated list of search suggestions rather than the google results these results include auto compete style. Excuse me auto. Complete style. suggestions generated by apple showing that it is learning from its one billion users common queries. Okay see i kinda just want to read the whole story to you and then go back. Point-by-point it's the financial times. Why don't we start there. It's the financial times so of course. They're concentrating on the money. Part of it as if apple just started doing this yesterday. They keep saying that the doj is suing. Google for anticompetitive behavior at the center of that suit or near. The center of that suit is the fact that google pay somewhere between nine billion then twelve billion dollars a year to be the default search engine in safari. Everybody says for iphone. But it's for safari right. The doj in the past few weeks at right were suing. And i know we've known that that was coming for a while. But it's not like falcons can suddenly turn on a search engine from nothing. of course they haven't turned it on nothing Two and a half years ago. The got john john andrea. I'm sure i'm pronouncing that wrong He was the head of google search supposedly. They said it was to Increase their artificial intelligence capabilities and siri virtual assistant but he also brought eight years of experience. Running the world's most popular search engine the financial times. Points out. I mean sorry. It doesn't mean that apple is in creating an alternative to google i. I'm going to go ahead and keep reading. And then we'll i should have read the whole thing right. Experts financial times talked to Some of whom used to work for google. Say it wouldn't cost that much for apple to do this. And that apple has hired the talent to do it. That apple could do it because you can't just go in license somebody else's search technology if you're going to be an alternative google. I did not know until. I was reading the financial times story here and this could explain. Why dot go. I love duck duck. Go doug goes. Was privacy focused search engine and you can go there instead of google and you can type in your queries. And they're not being tracked and that's great They rely on being. It turns out their licensing beings technology. Now still your information as dang between you and duck duck go. It's not going anywhere. It's anonymous all that stuff. It explains why duct that goes results. Aren't necessarily as good as you might want. Duck tuck duck goes results to be apple. Can't just skin being. They can't just skin duck. Oh right they have to come up with something better if they're going to compete with google but not everybody thinks they're going to compete with google. Dan wong associate professor of business at columbia business. School said it would be extremely difficult for apple to ever catch up. Go-goes advantage comes from scale. He said and the endless user feedback helps to tune results and identify areas of improvement. Google gets hundreds of millions of queries every minute from users all over the world. That's an enormous advantage when it comes to data surprising. No one apple declined to comment for the financial times all right. There's so much about this. That's interesting and also i think kinda wrong in what. The financial times is arguing first of all. They're saying that apple is doing this because they're worried about losing the twelve billion dollars nine to twelve billion dollars that up. A apple gets every year from google for being the default search engine. I use siri as often as i can. I know people who don't use siri at all. Google still spending nine billion dollars even if he does get better. Google spending nine billion dollars for apple would not be a waste of money because there are lots of people who are always going to google it. They're not going to ask siri for whatever reason. I know that. When i'm out of the store i don't ask siri because i don't like to talk in public. I don't like to you know. Spread my business around. If i'm worried about a search engine tracking me. I'm certainly going to worry about you. Know saying out loud the grocery store or well. That's the only place. I go now saying out loud to the grocery store what i'm searching for. Nobody else needs to know that. At that point i will start typing stuff in at that point. Is it google that i'm going to. I have set my default search engine to duck duck go and that is another thing that this whole of this seems to sort of ignore. I mean the fact that we do have choices at this point. And i would imagine that somebody at least at apple will go ahead and argue. That what google is playing for is placement because people are lazy or people like google or don't realize they change it even though apple has made it clear that yes you can. Google earth could still pay nine billion dollars a year and not lose their money even if apple gets better at what. It's doing now as far as apple trying to build a search engine. That's going to replace google. I don't think so. I don't think apple is trying to replace a bill. The search engine that everybody is going to go to. Because i don't think apple wants that kind of headache. I think all of this stuff about siri better and about apple's being better. I think all of that is true. I think what apple would like is instead of going to any search engine you pick up your you ask a question you get your answer not kicking over to the. Here's what i found on the web. Not thinking oh. I need to go to google or i need to go to ulta vista wherever it is. I need to go to look up stuff. I need to ask jeeves by. Golly i think that's the part of this whole thing. That actually excites me. The most the idea that my virtual assistant could become more of an assistant unless a virtual thing that it could become a a source that i turned to to ask questions and get answers

Michael Flynn: Trump pardons ex-national security adviser

"Former. Us national security adviser. Michael flynn who was convicted during the justice department inquiry into alleged russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election has been pardoned by president. Donald trump trump called his own action. A great honor whilst house speaker. Nancy pelosi called it an act of grave corruption and abrazen brazen abuse of power. Well which is it. And what kind of precedent does it set. Let's get the opinion of scott lucas professor of us. Politics at the university of birmingham scott. Good morning to you. Good morning do remind us of flynn's short-lived term. I think it was just three weeks in the white house. Well while it was only three weeks in the white house there was an import run up to the while he was on the trump campaign in two thousand sixteen. Because michael. Flynn lied to the fbi on two occasions and pleaded implied pleaded guilty to lying to the fbi about a number of conversations. He had with the russian ambassador. Sergei kislyak and december two thousand sixteen. Why were those conversations important because they were about an incoming trump administration lifting sanctions on russia. That had just been imposed by president. Barack obama over moscow's interference in the two thousand sixteen election and interference which of course favoured donald trump. So the was that that michael flynn on behalf of the trump campaign or trump transition was trading immediate political favors in exchange for russia's help The initially the trump administration tried to keep planning office in january february two thousand and seventeen but he had to be sacrificed trump's trying to create a firewall to prevent further investigation. That investigation didn't stop of course accommodated in the miller report which found that there was cooperation between the trump folks and the russians but the right wing insisted and kept pressing trump. You must pardon. Michael flynn he became like this icon for the misinformation that this was all a deep state plot to overthrow the president and we do at some point. That trump would probably pardon fled. It just so happens to come. Easy as trump is trying to cling onto the white house after losing the election in november. We'll see what kind of precedent does this set. I mean do you think that we'll see trump do similar in this. Lame duck period. Oh yeah i think there will be more. And i think that's for a couple of reasons but first let me remind you. That is not just that michael. Flynn actually lied to the fbi about the russia case. It's also that michael flood may have faced prosecution over being an unregistered agent for a foreign power. Taking hundreds of thousands of dollars shrunk turkey and russia for his work while he was on the trump campaign to the extent of making on voice of the turkish government. About extraditing a cleric who is considered an opponent of president aired on And that michael. Flynn was making more money of trying to get nuclear power plants for saudi arabia while he was on the trump campaign and the trump administration In other words trump is willing to give flint a pass for that for two reasons. One he wants to bury the trump russia a fair and trump still faces possible charges over obstruction of justice over trump russia. And secondly michael. Flynn could testify against donald trump in a number of proceedings that are ongoing at state and federal level. Trump wants to cut off that possibility. But you know what michael not. The only person who could testify against donald trump avoid that possibility and of course after trump's term ends in january. He is as you say likely to face. Many legal challenges is there any way he can preemptively. Pardon himself no. We don't think so. I mean no president has tried to pardon himself so we're on noodle legal ground but mostly glands say no that power can't be used to get yourself off the hook what donald trump could do however days before january twentieth. Joe biden takes office resign. Let mike pence become president mike pence pardons donald trump. That is an extraordinary scenario to to think of if it didn't happen in the interest of a united america do you think joe biden might pardon trump if he is convicted. I don't think biden will pardon trump because the scale of the abuse of power by trump as well as the possible crimes is is great probably greater than that of richard nixon in the nineteen seventies. But i what. I do think joe biden will do as is that he will not possibly. He will not push the justice department To do federal investigations in other words. Trump is in sort of a limbo but of lambeau at the federal level. However what joe biden can't do is issue commands to the new york state prosecutors who were compiling a series of cases against what would then be the former president and i mean. Do you seriously think that we could be looking at a feature where donald trump is behind bars. Look georgina there are many things that have happened. We could not visit for years. So i i wouldn't rule anything out at this point. I think donald trump's gonna go kicking and screaming and he as we've seen with his dispute of the election results. His attorneys will drive this out as long as possible. So trump might avoid prison but to avoid prosecution. Now i think even the donald can't get away with that scott lakers. Thanks very much

"I'm Sean to weird I'm Andy Taylor and I'm Justin Lemme? So, we were talking about off off the cameras and microphones about games. Because gaming is been a lot of fun. The, one of the big games that many people are playing. My daughter came over the other day and I guess she thinks I have every little piece of technology because you know she asked. Right then she asked me, do you have? Do you have a switch dead? No. Let's switch a light switch on the wall. What are you talking about? I remember the switch when I was a kid. It's what I got if I talked back way xactly. Ten switch is very popular, but it's you know it's kind of it was out there, but it's become even more popular now with this game. That everybody's playing that I don't understand I've seen videos for it. I've heard music drives. People nuts in the game. It's called animal crossing and apparently your play. I am yes and. So I have never okay so I I often nintendo switches a handheld console. It came out in two thousand seventeen. It is the fastest selling console I believe in history and that is including playstation and xbox well You cannot find an intendo switch right now because everybody wants to get this animal crossing, so I've already had the Nintendo switch. Animal crossing is a series of games that have been around since I I WANNA say the Nintendo sixty four days. Wow, so game that they. Game, but they release it. Every new edition of had one for the Nintendo sixty four. You had one for the Gamecube you had probably two or three for the game cube. Actually then you had a couple for the we the one for the we you on the three D. S. anyway now you've got one for the Nintendo switch and. It follows the same premise for those of you. Don't know what animal crossing is. This is according to the wikipedia page for it. Animal Crossing New Horizons. That's that's that's. This version's name is a real time. Social Social Simulation video game developed by Nintendo it was released on March twentieth of Twenty Twenty and is the newest mainline game in the animal, crossing. Crossing series, the story starts with a player living on a deserted island as a part of a nook INC getaway package so basically the the the concept of this game is you are a villager who decides to take this adventure to live on a deserted island. with the company called Nuke Inc and this Guy Tom nook provides you with a tent. To live in, and then he kind of guides you along the way of how to decorate the island how to bring in more people to live with you on this island, and it's not people animals. There's all different types of animals from dogs to bears to clowns to I. Mean just all kinds of crazy things you can find. There's hundreds of villagers that could possibly move in, but the whole idea behind the game is to Kinda just. To sit back and chill, so it was like almost like he's like. Sim City the Sims the Sims it's like the sims in a way, but there's not. It's not so linear in the Sims. Your sin had to wake up. Give for work. Go to work. Come back. Do his hobby go to bed. I know animal crossing. You can just do whatever you want if you want to spend the time. Shaking trees to gather loose branches to build things. If you want to dig up rocks and fossils and donate them to the museum. If you WANNA, run around and. Chat with your neighbors until the point where they get annoyed with you and tell you to leave him alone. You can do whatever you want to do in. This game sounds like everyday life for me. Exactly. Right. This addicting because. Him. addicting it is addicting. It really is addicting because every day I'm thinking about okay well, what am I? What am I not get done last night on my island? Oh I forgot to rearrange the flowerbed. Okay, so then I pop back on the next day Oh my goodness I pop back on the next day and I'm like okay I'm going to rearrange my flower bed. I'm going to relay these paths that these pathways down people to walk on oh I want to go over here and collect these oranges office orange tree I mean it's just super simple tasks, and it sounds ridiculous. I know it sounds ridiculous, but please if you. If. You're bored. Sitting at home, and you happen to have an intendo switch goget animal crossing. It is so worth it is such a fun low key game where it doesn't require a lot of time, however Oh, and the best part is. This is one of the best parts I want to say this. There's a streamer. Pretty, famous facebook streamer name Sachi all right. She has been playing a replica of deal or no deal every day using animal crossing so the characters. In the game all the. Multiplayer so people can come to her island and they come in, and she's got the entire board set up with these little packages, and they have to go and pick five packages and put them on the thing. It's the exact premise of dealer. No deal but what she gets out of it, so she has a bias. People have to pay like I. Don't know twenty. Twenty thousand bells bells currency in the game pay twenty thousand bells, and it goes into this pot, and that's what she uses to give away so that people are playing deal or no deal on animal crossing, and it is hilarious. That's kind of cool, so so I want to mention something so I, sent him an imaging skype chat and give a little context at. The same day that animal crossing dropped on switch. The new Doom Eternal game also dropped on twitter. Oh. Yeah, the right, yeah. L.

I didn't get to see that one. Yeah, I. One I. Did. That came out that Dumont and blue. We're talking about how great the graphics were really good. It really is that's a really another. A really good game to there's also there's also another game that dropped in during this whole pandemic, the final fantasy seven remake. Is. has been absolutely amazing race. Three parts right. It's coming on in I. Don't know how many parts, but it's coming out in multiple parts. Yes, so. This is just one part of the story line, but what I like is that they're expanding on the storyline, so you have the original final fantasy seven stolen also, it's not a one for one. It's they expand on it a little bit. Yeah, there's there's there's a little bit of expansion on some of the other smaller plotlines that they grew up so final. For those of you don't know final fantasy seven was one of the greatest games made. It was released back in one, thousand,.

"Yeah that sounds smoking. It sounds kind of like grumbling. Old Man way more like Donald Duck. They sound pissed usually are so. I guess the question is is like. Would you call it a quack? Still like people who listened to bird calls seem to think it's like slightly less of a pure quack on the female Mallard. The reason for these cracks I think is the reason for any bird sounds. I couldn't find any specifics. What is vibrating? But instead of a Larry banks like mammals or reptiles or other things. Birds like ducks in addition to Larynx. Have an organ called a searing which is lower down in their chest closer to the lungs so they still have a larynx with membranes. That the vocal folds which make vibrations that can make sounds of those but they can also make sounds with the searing which is closer to the lungs and it's like a bony structure surrounded by an air SAC. And it's like a resonating chamber. Which is how I think birds can make so many different noises because they have these two different vocal boxes. That can make sounds so. It's not just maller that totally wrong in my head other ducks quack but it sounds further away from the pure quack that you think of like duck sound and do they echo. What is that all about? So I don't know if any of you have ever heard Smith but apparently there's a myth that duck quacks don't echo. No THEY DO ECHO. They're made of sound And so the Heck Oh yeah. I feel like it's something cowboys. Were telling each other around the campfire billing. Yeah no honestly it sounds like something that somebody credible said on the radio in nineteen fifty five and then it's just become a Sonically speaking people have studied this and found that yes dot cracks do echo and they think it might have something to do with the length of the sound so like the way that a duck quacks with along like at the end of end of it can mask echoes that are bouncing back because echo is just a sound reflection but a researcher named Trevor Cox at Salford University Acoustics Research Center who normally studies like auditoriums and things like that did an experiment with a duck named Daisy Daisy crack in an annacone chamber which is one that doesn't echo and it sounded like this good very short and sweet but then they made Daisy crack in an echo chamber and it sounded like this sounds like to me like Mary. Spooky like the duck has come to claim your soul. There is audio online to prove that a duck quack does in fact echo. The the sad story is that at the bottom of this article. It's a daisy was kindly lent to us by stock we farm in Cheshire. This is a working farm open to public. Unfortunately daisy has been eaten by a Fox lives on that but also really funny of one. Yeah I mean that sounds like something that that they would say those people who are trying to convince us that duck quacks echo but daisy actually never existed. It's all lies suspicious. If you want to ask the science couch follow us on twitter at Sei. Show tangents where we will tweet out topics for upcoming episodes every week. Thank you to add ceremonies flux filter and everybody else who tweeted us. You questions this episode. Final Sam Bucks Gore's Sairy and Stephan tied with one Hankins Sam tied in the lead with two for the season. Sairy still in the lead but only by one point. It's very close in fact.

"Read few and that's it or novell prize winning science. Yeah I love that fact. Good one of a duck's best friend is his concept of Sameness and different NECE. Stephan what do you have for us so in commercial fishing? There's a thing called bycatch which is like anything that you catch. That's alive that you weren't intending to catch and that could even be like juvenile's of species that you're actually fishing for but you don't want the juvenile's just want the adult right. It's like when you get when you get curly fries at Arby's but there's accidentally like one real regular they're like. Oh Hey but what I ordered like. It's a pretty big problem with fishing. I was reading about like shrimp trawling. I guess is the worst offender and on average you catch almost six kilograms of not shrimp for every kilogram of shrimp which is ridiculous and so different. Fishing methods will require different solutions. To mitigate that so gillnet fishing is a method where they have this wall of netting that hangs out in the water and the holes are designed so that if it can get its head in but then get stuck and can't get back out. But a lot of marine mammals get stuck in those nets also and so one of the ways that they've developed to deal with that. Are Things called pingers? Which one fish one fisherman called? Oversized hotdogs because that's kind of what they look like. They're not that big but they're bigger than a hot dog. I guess but they're just little devices that have a speaker basically that ping's different frequencies to try to deter certain animals like they're super loud and they play different tones and like with the range of hearing is very high much higher than humans. And so these pingers can play really high frequencies and that seems to be very effective at deterring them getting in the nets. And so we've been using those it for the past couple of decades and they've been really effective at deterring marine mammals. But people also want to see if these can be used to deter seabirds diving ducks because seabirds are also threatened by fishing. They estimate hundreds of thousands of birds get caught every year in fishing equipment. The gillnet fishing in particular seems particularly bad for diving sea ducks and so some people are wondering if we can use these pingers that are on these nets already to also deter birds. But we don't have a good sense of like what ducks underwater hearing abilities are like what frequencies they here and so researchers at the University of Delaware in collaboration with the US and the US fish and Wildlife Service are trying to figure that out there testing this on several different species of ducks and they take them from birth and they have them imprint on the researchers so that they can study them without stressing out too much. Okay good. They're basically doing what is very similar to like when you do a human hearing test and you play a bunch of different notes and then it's like okay. I can hear that one can hear that one but in order to tell what the duck is hearing they have to go through a whole process of training them. They have to get them to a point. Where when a light turns on they will die off and then while they're underwater? They hit a button. That like indicates. Okay the duck is under water and then they play a sound and if the duck. Here's a sound then. It's trained to go back to the surface and hit a different button and then it gets a reward so it's a very complex this is. Why don't you display them of sound? See they run away. That's what you want. The duck that in their suggestion box in this case like we're getting a sense of like the over like we're mapping out their overall like hearing. It's not just something okay. These things are making them run away so that whole process takes a long time and the master student. Who's heading up? That research was saying that it does take a long time but the birds are surprisingly trainable. So I think we've we've confirmed that DUCKS ARE SUPER SMART. But they found that between these different species of ducks. They seem to share a common range of auditory sensitivity from about one kilohertz to three kilohertz which is not as good as so like apparently fish have terrible hearing they can only hear most fish can only here up to one or two kilohertz which I did not realize just for reference I guess humans here to about twenty kilohertz until like whales and dolphins go way above that and so they have a lot of frequencies there that they can play with for these pinger devices but here because ducks range. Overlaps with the top of fishes range. It's like a little trickier to figure out if they can use the pingers. But this is sort of like first steps in exploring like mapping out ducks ear abilities and then seeing if they can help reduce all the birds that are dying in fishing nets and stuff. Yes it's the the the Duckie here nome project. Okay was that like a Human Genome Project. That was supposed to be like a human genome project area. Bad you gotta get out of Your House hang got thank God. So the facts we have to choose from our ducklings can print on anything so scientists use that to study whether ducks could understand concepts like same in different and they can and they found that their mommy is is a concept or stephens backed scientists use the ability of duck imputation to study the duck ability to hear a different ranges so we can try to develop duck pingers and were still. In the mapping phase of the Duckie here gnome project. It's gotta be a better something better than that genome like the microbiome and the collect the dome like just make up words. Yeah I kind of like it now. The second time you said did I liked it Syrian. I now have to choose between the Duckie here known projects and my mom is a concept three to one Sam Stephan. I'm glad to know what pingers are and you have. You have enriched my world with that knowledge I did not know about those until today but the fact that an idea can be printed on rather than an actual object is freaking hard everybody. It's time for ask the science couch except that it's mostly asked the science blanket for today. We've got some listener questions. Thank it for it. A finely honed scientific minds question comes from at Andrew t her. How do ducks quack? Also do duck quacks echo. Why slightly by that question? Just because I like better how ducks I'd never thought about this. obviously lots of lots of birds make weird noises so it's just the another noise but it is a pretty specifing noise sairy. I have no idea what's up with duck quacks. Did you figure anything out? Sort of so. I listened to a lot of cracks so much. So that the cat that I'm co working with kept looking over at me as I was not adopt cracks. So the the quintessential quack is made by Female Mallard ducks. It sounds like this. Become solid noise pretty standard quack? Ups like your your bread quacks. And they'll talk for a whole bunch of reasons like when they're separated from the partner but Male mallards make a raspy sound and other ducts. Don't even make cracks at all. They make clicking sounds like weird hall or or other things so this is a male Mallard back. Oh.

"They took a bunch of newly hatched ducks and they showed them pairs of moving shapes and the shapes were either exactly the same two different colors or two different shapes and so they imprinted them on the moving shapes and they showed them two other sets of shapes and gave them the choice of which one to follow and neither of the two new sets was identical to the set that the ducklings imprinted on but one of the payers had the same relationship to each other as the pair that they bonded with so if the ducks imprinted onto red circles than they were shown to purple circles and then a blue circle in the yellow circle they would always follow the Purple Circle for instance or if they were shown a square and a triangle and then they were showing a matching set of two different shapes and then a nine matching set of like diamond and a rectangle. They would follow the diamond rectangle because they were different. Researchers figured out that this meant that ducklings didn't see like two red circles or a square and a triangle but they could understand what same indifferent meant and they could use those like distinctions to make decisions about stuff so there are examples of primates and other types of birds that can do same indifferent but they have to be trained. A lot and ducklings are even better at understanding same in different than human babies. R ducks are so smart. I love that so ducks are very smart. The smartest of all babies ilise it makes me very sad for these ducks though. It is a little sad. My Mommy is the concept of difference. It's just an idea ducks wandering around. That is okay. They grow up and then they don't need 'em they don't need it anymore. Do we know anything about whether imprinting on an other animals that are not ducks or or other objects? Is there like an evolutionary advantage to that like? Do Ducts often get adopted by other animals or something? I think it's just like an accidental side effect of the general imprinting process. I don't think they adopted they do. There's those gotTa get it got adopted by that plane. Oh I forgot about that. Is that far from home plane bomb. That's true but I would imagine a lot of other things that would adopt a baby. Duck that their own with eat the baby. Yeah be like your baby. Even though I'm duck like there's a pretty small list of things that could be a baby ducks. Mom THAT IS DOC. That wouldn't eat the duck and it's like playing.

"From old. English deuce. Uc Yeah which is literally a ducker which comes from old English do can which is to Dow okay so named after the action and they were like. Oh what's that bird dude? And then they're like. Oh Yeah I don't really think of what ducks do as ducking but I can definitely see the connection between a diving duck. And now it's time for one of our panelists. It's me has brought three science facts for our education and enjoyment but only one of those facts is real. The rest of you have to figure out either by deduction or awhile gas. Which is the true fact. If you get it right then you get the Sam book if you are tricked then I get the Sam buck everybody. Are you ready for my duck facts? SAM DS. I didn't know I had audio and confirm we already talked a little bit about duck sex. So don't worry there's more we have for you today. The Duck microcosms crossover that. Nobody asked for ducks. Xs infamous corkscrew penises. It's even got occasional necrophilia. I don't know if you guys have read that scientific paper but how could you avoid it? And sometimes the real concern isn't the duck. You See. It is the microbe you don't which of the following is a real story of ducks and sex and microbes fact number one. Many birds including ducks use smell to attract their mates a smell that is driven in part by the residents of their microbiome but female ducks also heavily to discourage unwanted male suitors the Northern Pintail Duck has devised its own unique strategy mimicking the smell of imminent death after meeting with their selected partner. The one that they liked the female northern pintail will then rub their tail against the pickerel weed plant and then prospective suitors who smelled them would then be turned off and not interested and that confused scientists until they discovered that the center of the Pickerel Weed plant mixed with the female ducks natural oils created a body odor that resembles that of a duck who has been infected with a potentially deadly bacteria fact number two the Spiro keep bacteria as a spiral shape. Bacteria often found in mud and water. But they've also been found hitchhiking their way from male to female ducks via the sperm. Scientists have observed. The Spiro Keyed Braque's spira pillow coli hooking to an individual sperm cell and while many Spiro keets are pathogenic be pillow coli has taken a different path it aims instead to help its hosts of kind of though of course for its own benefit after latching onto the sperm. The Spiro key uses it's Fla Gela to propel the sperm helping that individual sperm move more quickly to the egg and out compete other sperms so it can land that bacteria in a new host which can then colonize or fact number three female. Birds have a tendency to pick mates with more lively ornamentation. Mallards of course are no exception. Female mallards tend to select male mallards with more richly colored bills. But this is not simply a matter of female ducks picking out the most handsome duck on the block many animals produce sperm with antimicrobial properties. And it turns out that a well colored bill is a handy marker for just how capable the male mallards sperm is at killing bacteria so male. Mauer's with less colorful bills produced sperm. That was less able to kill E. coli making their sperm potentially more damaged so fact number one. The northern pintail duck can discourage male suitors by mimicking the smell of imminent death by rubbing up against a pickerel weed. Plant fact number two. Scientists have seen a spy rookie that hooks on to a sperm and then propels it. That out compete others firm or a well. Colored Bill is a handy marker of how bacteria Seidel a mallards. Sperm is bacteria spiral shape. Yes Byron Keats. Are That's realistic. But then maybe hang. Just pick this one because it's the duck spiral spiral then. We're like. Oh yes they have nothing to do. You really don't need to have a spiral bacteria to fit into a duck vagina just for clarity. They're very small can they can go into any vagina. They wish I have built. Duck puppets in my. You've built duck side show and I feel like I remember researching what color mallards were and that being important somehow. So I'm GonNa Guess that one is a lie in just because I can't remember how I don't I don't think that was it. I feel like that one also has some elements of truth in it. I know that they're feeling color throughout season. Maybe like duck feet uh-huh because they can like cut off circulation to it which is how they can walk on like cold. Ground CHANGES THEIR FEATS COLOR. But that has nothing to do with bacteria and nothing to do with the bill so but the first one also sounds fake to me because I feel like I've heard like ants that do that or something like something that smells a dead who's also like corpse flowers. Yeah I like it though just as like a like an easy thing to do. Rub Your but with the plant and then triple leave you alone because they think you're sick are their animals that use plants like that. So we've seen in some primates them like using something as mosquito repellent Beatles or something like that. I don't know about other animals brushing up against plants. I it makes sense though 'cause they could smell it out. Yeah but maybe that's too many steps of logic to be like when I rubbed my but on this specific plan people avoid me are duct smart e. Yeah those are pretty smart. Most birds are are fairly smart in terms of of animals but also like it tends to be when animals are using plants. They're not like thinking about how the plant is useful. They might primate certainly dolphins. Yes some animals. Yes but usually it is like this strategy has worked and so this instinct has been developed. I've looked into the eye of duck and it seemed to understand me so I think it's pretty good gut level reaction. They just get such a bad rap and cartoons. I feel like they're pretty clever and cartoons scrooge mcduck could collect all that money by being forgot about him. Ducks are generally fools. I feel like that they could be generally fools but still financially literate which concerns me okay. I'M GONNA go with the Picker. We play it. I'M GONNA go at the spirals firms by this Bairo. Keep bacteria hooking up to the sperm. I'll I'll go with the colored. Bill Equals Killer. Sperm okay. We're spreading them out. You're giving me no chance to to get three points is what happened. And the answer is the colored. Bill makes more bacteria killing sperm. So apparently lots of semen has antibacterial properties. And I guess for obvious reasons. The bacteria can cause potential mutations firm they can also of course kill the sperm and that mutations might be passed on to the next generation so it's good to not have that and some scientists and to do this. They they had to use what's called clinical massage together. A bunch of samples of ducks firm And then they just compared the brightness of the bill to the ability of it to kill E. Coli and found that there is a correlation to those two things and there's a direct link. It's not like one means the other. It's that like a healthy bird is both able to have a brighter. Bill and produce more spermicide in its semen. So there's a number of things that will probably also be appealing and high quality about that potential mate like just more scientists studying duck sacks I we can't get enough of the other facts. Birds DO SNIFF. Each Other to choose their mates. But this thing was made up. And then no spiral spiral shape bacteria they do not hook up to sperm and probably wouldn't be able to help us sperm. They just sort of like go off to the left more than they would go straight but this was based on the fact that M- MOUSE BERMS DO sometimes hooked together to move faster as one. So if like if there's like twenty million sperm and like twenty of them are like let's work together you know. One in twenty is a better chance than one in twenty million. So that's how lottery pools that's right. Yeah everybody hooked together are some sperm. Just more predisposed to be like selfless or I don't know I did not. I did not look deeply into that. I was just like Oh that's interesting then. I was like ducks so yeah I don't know how why they apparently hooked together but they do seem to move faster when they do all right so I got to Sam Buxton. Stephan got one next. We're going to take a short break. Then it'll be time for the fact off welcome back. Sam Buck totals. I've got to Seri. Stephan are tied with one and Sam has nothing. But it's time for Sam to try and make way back in the factor off to panelists have brought science facts to the others an attempt to blow their minds the present tease each of a Sambuc to award at the fact that they liked the most. And here's how we're going to decide. Who GOES I? I have a question for you. Give me an answer. How many days is the incubation period for Mallard Duck Eggs? I think actually no this one. Oh Wow Sam. Sam thinks he knows this. Does that mean I should go. I don't know what is Game Theory saying the situation. That's not Stephan go. I two weeks fourteen days one month thirty days thirty or thirty one. Sam Is it February. It depends on which one that is. I guess yeah honey. Nine days sometimes closer as twenty seven to twenty eight days off no farther off. Why why do you why do you why do you know how many hey? I want I can tell you right now. I know that there is a pretty common trope in cartoons where a duckling will hatch and then think the first thing that sees is. It's mom and you might think that this is cartoon logic but because real ducts are ridiculous. Cartoon animals is a real phenomenon is called imprinting and it happens to some degree with lots of animals. But it's really pronounced with baby ducks geese and chickens and so the way it works is during the first two or so days after baby bird hatches after it's been incubated for twenty seven days if fixate on moving things in its environment and those objects kind of fhm selves on the birds brain so if everything goes according to plan it'll be looking mostly at its mom and siblings walking around so then it'll be able to tell it's family apart from other duck families and follow them around and stay out of trouble but these kinds of baby birds. Liking cartoons can pretty much imprinted on anything and scientists have been using that to explore. Just how capable of abstract thought animals might mean so in the seventies Conrad. Laurens was the first person to figure out. That imprinting was mostly visual thing. And not just instinctual and that you could kind of trick the bird to imprint on pretty much any moving object and this discovery actually won him the Nobel prize for chicken a bunch of goslings into following them around then in the nineties test was conducted where chicks like baby chickens imprinted on a red cube and then following mover was just sitting there. That whole knit moving it around or something so then after that they showed them other other shapes and cubes of different colors and let them pick which one they wanted to follow and they would always follow the cube no matter what color was so this showed that chicks were capable of generalization and they could make small leaps of logic about who the best person to follow us so this discovery was apparently a big deal in the world of like bird cognition and researchers are still trying to figure out like find the the limits of how capable they are abstract thought so in two thousand sixteen. They took a bunch of newly hatched ducks and they showed them pairs of moving shapes and the shapes were either exactly the same two different colors or two different shapes and so they imprinted them on the moving shapes and they showed them two other sets of shapes and gave them the choice of which one to follow and neither of the two new sets was identical to the set that the ducklings imprinted on but one of the payers had the same relationship to each other as the pair that they bonded with so if the ducks imprinted onto red circles than they were shown to purple circles and then a blue circle in the yellow circle they would always follow the Purple Circle for instance or if they were shown a square and a triangle and then they were showing a matching set of two different shapes and then a nine matching set of like diamond and a rectangle. They would follow the diamond rectangle because they were different. Researchers figured out that this meant that ducklings didn't see like two red circles or a square and a triangle but they could understand what same indifferent meant and they could use those like distinctions to make decisions about stuff so there are examples of primates.

"ducks" Discussed on SciShow Tangents

"From old. English deuce. Uc Yeah which is literally a ducker which comes from old English do can which is to Dow okay so named after the action and they were like. Oh what's that bird dude? And then they're like. Oh Yeah I don't really think of what ducks do as ducking but I can definitely see the connection between a diving duck. And now it's time for one of our panelists. It's me has brought three science facts for our education and enjoyment but only one of those facts is real. The rest of you have to figure out either by deduction or awhile gas. Which is the true fact. If you get it right then you get the Sam book if you are tricked then I get the Sam buck everybody. Are you ready for my duck facts? SAM DS. I didn't know I had audio and confirm we already talked a little bit about duck sex. So don't worry there's more we have for you today. The Duck microcosms crossover that. Nobody asked for ducks. Xs infamous corkscrew penises. It's even got occasional necrophilia. I don't know if you guys have read that scientific paper but how could you avoid it? And sometimes the real concern isn't the duck. You See. It is the microbe you don't which of the following is a real story of ducks and sex and microbes fact number one. Many birds including ducks use smell to attract their mates a smell that is driven in part by the residents of their microbiome but female ducks also heavily to discourage unwanted male suitors the Northern Pintail Duck has devised its own unique strategy mimicking the smell of imminent death after meeting with their selected partner. The one that they liked the female northern pintail will then rub their tail against the pickerel weed plant and then prospective suitors who smelled them would then be turned off and not interested and that confused scientists until they discovered that the center of the Pickerel Weed plant mixed with the female ducks natural oils created a body odor that resembles that of a duck who has been infected with a potentially deadly bacteria fact number two the Spiro keep bacteria as a spiral shape. Bacteria often found in mud and water. But they've also been found hitchhiking their way from male to female ducks via the sperm. Scientists have observed. The Spiro Keyed Braque's spira pillow coli hooking to an individual sperm cell and while many Spiro keets are pathogenic be pillow coli has taken a different path it aims instead to help its hosts of kind of though of course for its own benefit after latching onto the sperm. The Spiro key uses it's Fla Gela to propel the sperm helping that individual sperm move more quickly to the egg and out compete other sperms so it can land that bacteria in a new host which can then colonize or fact number three female. Birds have a tendency to pick mates with more lively ornamentation. Mallards of course are no exception. Female mallards tend to select male mallards with more richly colored bills. But this is not simply a matter of female ducks picking out the most handsome duck on the block many animals produce sperm with antimicrobial properties. And it turns out that a well colored bill is a handy marker for just how capable the male mallards sperm is at killing bacteria so male. Mauer's with less colorful bills produced sperm. That was less able to kill E. coli making their sperm potentially more damaged so fact number one. The northern pintail duck can discourage male suitors by mimicking the smell of imminent death by rubbing up against a pickerel weed. Plant fact number two. Scientists have seen a spy rookie that hooks on to a sperm and then propels it. That out compete others firm or a well. Colored Bill is a handy marker of how bacteria Seidel a mallards. Sperm is bacteria spiral shape. Yes Byron Keats. Are That's realistic. But then maybe hang. Just pick this one because it's the duck spiral spiral then. We're like. Oh yes they have nothing to do. You really don't need to have a spiral bacteria to fit into a duck vagina just for clarity. They're very small can they can go into any vagina. They wish I have built. Duck puppets in my. You've built duck side show and I feel like I remember researching what color mallards were and that being important somehow. So I'm GonNa Guess that one is a lie in just because I can't remember how I don't I don't think that was it. I feel like that one also has some elements of truth in it. I know that they're feeling color throughout season. Maybe like duck feet uh-huh because they can like cut off circulation to it which is how they can walk on like cold. Ground CHANGES THEIR FEATS COLOR. But that has nothing to do with bacteria and nothing to do with the bill so but the first one also sounds fake to me because I feel like I've heard like ants that do that or something like something that smells a dead who's also like corpse flowers. Yeah I like it though just as like a like an easy thing to do. Rub Your but with the plant and then triple leave you alone because they think you're sick are their animals that use plants like that. So we've seen in some primates them like using something as mosquito repellent Beatles or something like that. I don't know about other animals brushing up against plants. I it makes sense though 'cause they could smell it out. Yeah but maybe that's too many steps of logic to be like when I rubbed my but on this specific plan people avoid me are duct smart e. Yeah those are pretty smart. Most birds are are fairly smart in terms of of animals but also like it tends to be when animals are using plants. They're not like thinking about how the plant is useful. They might primate certainly dolphins. Yes some animals. Yes but usually it is like this strategy has worked and so this instinct has been developed. I've looked into the eye of duck and it seemed to understand me so I think it's pretty good gut level reaction. They just get such a bad rap and cartoons. I feel like they're pretty clever and cartoons scrooge mcduck could collect all that money by being forgot about him. Ducks are generally fools. I feel like that they could be generally fools but still financially literate which concerns me okay. I'M GONNA go with the Picker. We play it. I'M GONNA go at the spirals firms by this Bairo. Keep bacteria hooking up to the sperm. I'll I'll go with the colored. Bill Equals Killer. Sperm okay. We're spreading them out. You're giving me no chance to to get three points is what happened. And the answer is the colored. Bill makes more bacteria killing sperm. So apparently lots of semen has antibacterial properties. And I guess for obvious reasons. The bacteria can cause potential mutations firm they can also of course kill the sperm and that mutations might be passed on to the next generation so it's good to not have that and some scientists and to do this. They they had to use what's called clinical massage together. A bunch of samples of ducks firm And then they just compared the brightness of the bill to the ability of it to kill E. Coli and found that there is a correlation to those two things and there's a direct link. It's not like one means the other. It's that like a healthy bird is both able to have a brighter. Bill and produce more spermicide in its semen. So there's a number of things that will probably also be appealing and high quality about that potential mate like just more scientists studying duck sacks I we can't get enough of the other facts. Birds DO SNIFF. Each Other to choose their mates. But this thing was made up. And then no spiral spiral shape bacteria they do not hook up to sperm and probably wouldn't be able to help us sperm. They just sort of like go off to the left more than they would go straight but this was based on the fact that M- MOUSE BERMS DO sometimes hooked together to move faster as one. So if like if there's like twenty million sperm and like twenty of them are like let's work together you know. One in twenty is a better chance than one in twenty million. So that's how lottery pools that's right. Yeah everybody hooked together are some sperm. Just more predisposed to be like selfless or I don't know I did not. I did not look deeply into that. I was just like Oh that's interesting then. I was like ducks so yeah I don't know how why they apparently hooked together but they do seem to move faster when they do all right so I got to Sam Buxton. Stephan got one next. We're going to take a short break. Then it'll be time for the fact off welcome back. Sam Buck totals. I've got to Seri. Stephan are tied with one and Sam has nothing. But it's time for Sam to try and make way back in the factor off to panelists have brought science facts to the others an attempt to blow their minds the present tease each of a Sambuc to award at the fact that they liked the most.

Act like goggles for site. A comb like mouth thing helps them filter early Q. Fallacies affect how they breed so we can love pond with ducklings or a good twitter thread but for their safety and ours. Don't just feed them. Bread Oh God to be careful feeding bread ducks. Twitter can really get angry. Oh really yeah. There's a bunch of people who like to feed bread to ducks and other birds and they get really mad at people who tell them that they are villains for feeding them bread but Sarah was correct. Don't just feed them bread. It's okay for them to have some bread. It's not great if they just have bread which can happen. If a duck finds a source of bread that is everlasting. They will choose to eat just bread if you allow them to guess. Ducks are just like us. Catch up duck. Oh yeah that's a great point say catcher up and I did for a moment. Think that's not a duck duck. It's a duck an animal crossing that's red and has a little tomato tomato. We love catch up and animal. Crossing is coming out and three days. So we've gotta get it'll be up by the time the episodes up. Yes you will never be able to find me again. I'll be island me and we'll have quit our jobs and three this. Sorry good I will. It's time for it's time for video games you guys. There's no doubt about that. So obviously we are not in the same physical location. Because we are social distancing as we all should be right now for a place with active novel coronavirus and what a wild moment but I am very glad. Talk about ducks today so sorry. What is a duck? Well IT TURNS OUT. A duck is a lot of different things. There is a family of waterbirds called the Nati- which includes ducks and geese and swans and there are a bunch of species within that family that are ducks and but not all of them. Because aren't ducks arche? Stocks are not ducks swans ducks. They're close Sarah Close. Is it one of those things where they're just not true? Ducks yeah you can call them a duck more or is it the other way. Where like you wouldn't call them a duck but they kind of are like a lot. Moths are actually butterflies. But they just like look like moths so we don't call them butterflies. There's enough functional differences between these birds an anatomical difference that they are separated into different tax. I think there are things that we call ducks because we see them sticking their butts up water and they're like eating the ground stuff that are not ducks loons or other birds. Not Lao Newell's COOTS. Yeah those things. That sound fake. But they're not ducks. Okay do geese and Swan have the corkscrew? Dick's they have Dick's okay. A lot of birds which is not over. Yeah Yeah Clinical Kissing. So they kind of like smush their holes together and the SMOOCH and then exchange genetic information but certain birds like ducks have evolved actual penises to penetrate and have penetrative sex and it's mostly because of an evolutionary arms race. I don't know I feel like everyone on. Twitter asks us about duck sex but everyone asking about. It means that they've read about it already but yeah. Ducks have a very intense like forty centimeter long corkscrew. Fallas and then the females have a vaginal chamber. That's corckscrewed the other way or has dead ends in it to make it harder for a full erection and ejaculation and scientists have studied this by like going to duck meeting farms and having ducks get really aroused and then basically mate with a plastic tube of different shapes like a straight plastic tube and a curly. Q. Plastic Tube and Other Direction curlicue Fayza Tube and be like. Oh it's harder and so they just think it's a way to prevent female ducks from having unwanted sex so with a male that they don't seem fit to have eggs with boy. It sounds complicated to be a duck but it also sounds complicated to be a duck scientist. You just have to get your plastic tubes. Ready again. Yeah you have to have a lot of different kinds of plastic tubes. You also have to go home to your family at night. And it'll what'd you do at work today? Well you know same as usual. Let's let's dinner a goose just a big duck which I did. Google is goosing big duck and Google agrees that goose is not a big duck. There are definitely things that are ducks and and we know what they are. There are species that fit into that. There's there's a clear classification which is night clear. Delineation between yeah duck comes from yeah. It's pretty straightforward. It comes.

"ducks" Discussed on Gun Talk

"Sometimes being in the gun media you get to some fun events at some very interesting places. So this week on the gun. Talk podcast with doing this interview from castle. That's right a castle stone castle and I'm with ducks unlimited on event and with me here is James Powell. James how you doing. I'm good. Thanks for having me on so James. Explain to people Greystone Castle. This place is unbelievable. Greystone Castle is like Piece of Old World Europe taken out of Europe and sat down on a six thousand Acre ranch in the Texas northern end of the Texas L. Country. Yeah a little were stunning. Yeah a little over an hour from the Dallas Fort Worth area and So we're here. We're doing kind of a mixed bag of all kinds of stuff where let's see. We shot sporting clays we did an upland bird hunt chucker pheasant and quail was nice. Dog Work said some pointers and also an English cocker who was a Rockstar. And then this morning we did a duck hunt got on a mixed bag of ducks and then this afternoon we're GonNa go after some Hong so You know for people who've never been to a place like this. How do you explain it? You know it's you know it's it's like you could call it a high end hunting lodge but it's so comfortable and casual and there's so much hunting opportunity year. It feels like just out Miller nowhere Texas. Yeah you've got you know big white till's running around you got ducks on stock ponds. You got these mixed bag up on. Heintz it's it's hit overuse the word Sportsman's paradise it kind of feels like that when you're here and be at Texas ranch. They have the exotics as well. Yeah the whole separate area for that so talking ducks unlimited and what? You guys are up to these days. I mean probably most of our listeners know ducks unlimited. But I'm imagine maybe people don't know everything that you guys do. Give us kind of the rundown of mission and what you guys are up to lately. Yeah so you know. Most people are familiar with the duck head logo right just an iconic kind of famous logo that you see on the back. Everybody's pickup trucks. You know on the certain parts of the country and I think a lot of people assume were just like a duck hunting organization. Yeah and that's that's not really true. So we were. We were founded by DOT Connors and back in nineteen thirty seven and we're overwhelmingly supported by duck hunters waterfowl hunters. We've got seven hundred thirty. Five thousand ISH members come from all walks of life you know. We've got regular members. We've got volunteers. Major donors corporate supporters. Because our mission. Our mission is actually wetlands and waterfowl conservation. Were right yeah and the work that you guys are doing along the lines of the fundraising. It's not cheap to do some of these projects that you guys are up to. I mean you're talking about changing the land or moving water or some of the projects. I mean it's some serious planning in biology and also construction. Yeah you know. A lot of it is We do is much. Wetland Habitat. Work is as anybody you know. A lot of people don't realize we don't just raise money and then give it to others to do the work. We do a lot of that work ourselves. We have biologists hydrologist engineers. We Design Wetlands Projects Water Control Structures. We do the work all over North America all the way from Canada down into Mexico. And it's it's moving to move and mud and moving water. Yeah yeah that's kind of what we do. You know being from South Louisiana in the world of Hurricanes. Water does what it wants to do. It goes where it wants to go so to make it kind of do something you wanted to do can be maybe interesting. Yeah I can tell us depending on where you are. Sometimes we'll go on and we'll do wetlands work where there was a natural wetland and got plowed under but then they realize it's not very good farmland because it does hold too much. Water wet will hold water so what work with the private land owner? Whoever and we'll go in and war we'll restore it back to a wetland. Eric can be very productive for wildlife and that can benefit the private land owner in all kinds of other ways. You know. It's a hunting opportunity. It's wildlife viewing. It's you know they can do. A conservationist property like that so we can work with all kinds of people in all kinds of places so if somebody's listening they go one. Not a duck hunter. I don't really care. Why would non duck hunters care about what you guys are up to sure so you know wetlands we like to call nature's sponges right so if you live say say you're somebody from New Orleans? You're not a duck hunter. You don't care anything about that well. The best way to abate and reduce the impacts of flooding is natural wetlands. They worked better than anything else. And then we've seen it's you know it's not just New Orleans and places like that that get flooding over the last couple of years. I think gosh the whole Midwest has gotten some type of flooding oh absolutely and the best way to combat the negative effects of all that you know that water is to restore natural wetlands and have them in those watersheds. Yeah so that. They'll absorb that extra water and release it more slowly into the watershed which reduces flooding that same process will remove Chemicals Nitrates All kinds of stuff. These wetlands filter all that stuff out of the water so the water coming out of these wetlands is purified. Yeah right yeah so. The water quality is better. The water quantity and control is better. And then it's not just about so if you're just like wildlife and nature in general there's nine hundred other species wildlife in North America. That either live part of their life. All of their life in and around wetlands. Sure we're benefiting mammals insects reptiles amphibians. If you're any type of hunter it's a worthwhile Endeavor what you guys are up to. Yeah if you're hunter fisherman fish nurseries along the Gulf coast for instance we we benefit pretty pretty much everybody if you look at it that way so I mean I. We've known each other for several years. In you know people listening May Not Know James is not just a guy who works in an office and helps you know. Do stuff outdoors guy. I mean let's talk guns ammo and stuff like that. I mean you do a ton of hunting So we've had some fun with guns you've brought. We've have variety of guns. We've been shooting this week. The Browning shock on the eighth five but the one that everybody's been really loving. Is that a five sweet? Sixteen that it's like a magic wand. It's awesome I mean you've got a chance to handle it and shoot it and it's just it just you look at something in you you that then comes right up to your shoulder perfectly. Your eye goes right on the site plane perfectly. It's swings. It's balanced Triggers excellent. I've just I'm in love with that gun in you know. They didn't do an eight five twelve gauge. And then just make it in sixteen gauge. It is shaped and sized for that platform for that gauge and Trusdale for young. It's yeah it's a trim handy little gun. I mean it honestly. It almost feels like it came from a twenty gauge and became sixteen. Gauges that kind of handy and tight. Everybody it was so funny without prompting never goes shot a few times ago. What is this This is a cool gun. What am I shooting here? Yeah Yeah it's got greater onyx. Two beautiful little gun and I think what a lot of people don't shotgun hurts don't realize is. The sixteen gauge itself is a very efficient Shotgun Shell if you look at it from my ballistic standpoint and the shape and the profile that sixteen gauge partridge. You know whatever you WANNA call it a you know the the casing. Sometimes there's just magic in a particular cartridge or or case in this matter the rage lately with the six five creed more and the six five creed more is just as a just found a sweet spot that it is inherently very accurate Because of these long bullets if it shoots flat but it's not a magnum. It's not beating you up and I find a sixteen gauge is like the six five creed more of shocking world because you know absolutely knocked. We're knocking down. We shot geese today and knock down Birds but it doesn't beat you up now. I think you know if you're if you're going after biggies pass shooting biggies. It's not for you. Yeah necessarily may twelve shots chill so efficient you know that powder pellet ratio and the remainder of it and it's just a very efficient shot. Shell in shooting any kind of Upland Birds Docs. It's perfectly fine for any of that. You know water fouling is maybe not the easiest hunting to get into our. You know as far as types of hunting go. There's a lot gear required. And there's you know you have to know some certain things yet. The decoys you've got calls you've got all the stuff We were shooting. I think we were shooting number force today. Twelve gauge number. Four th right so do you have a preference on Ammo? You know the Browning bloods that they just came out with. I think goose two years ago and then they just now came out with the sixteen gauge waterfowl. Shooting the twelve gauge loads last last year out of the five. The twelve gauge is one. And that's that's kind of become my go-to now I like the. I like the winchester loads a lot. The dry locks and whatnot but I think the Browning line has become my favorite pretty quickly you know and I find that the three and a half inch shells. I don't need them I don't ever use them. Don't need not inches as plenty now. And I think that's why the the sixteen gauge is seeing a little bit of a renaissance. Yeah right it's starting to create it kind of went away now. It's starting to creep back in. These manufacturers wouldn't be making these sixteen gauge guns if they didn't think there is a good reason to be making them in a market out there for him and the sixteen seems to when we talk about sixteen. We always have people chime in Alabama of sixteen. There's this kind of a niche following. It's like people on. We're GONNA talk about ten millimeter. There's a certain little Group that loves Tim Milimeter Pistols Right. There's a group that loves sixteen gauge Shotguns so we ought to talk about one of the reasons were down here in Texas is because you guys have a big event coming up. We do and kind of the idea between this. You know why we're here. Greystone North Texas is because we're launching for the first time ever what we're calling the ducks expo right so in in. May of this year. We're going to be at the Texas Motor speedway Just north of Fort Worth Dallas Metroplex. We've got the right of the hole. Fifteen hundred Acre property infield outfield. Everything and the expo is going to not. Just be for duck hunters. It's a new thing but it's really for everybody. We're going to have rifle. Ranges pistol ranges archery range. There you're hearing that right now. Everything you want. There's going to be shooting at the Texas Motor speedway they're building they're building basically a shooting range for us for this event. I mean it's right there in the Dallas Fort. Worth area absolutely. Luckily they have the lion to do that. You can get the permits to do all kinds of cool stuff out there. It's GonNa be amazing so it's kind of like you know when you go to you know people listening may be familiar with the ratio for. I mean you go the ratio you get to experience. Lots of different guns ammo scopes and check them out but you generally cannot shoot them but here you're saying that you're GONNA have those manufacturers showing off the dune products but then you can try out absolutely you know so if you know bread if bread is there winchester. Browning's there say Glock. Whoever is there with their farms? You don't just get to walk up and look at them. You can get on the range and actually shoot these things and see just how much you really like him. It's also just a cool idea. Say I'M GONNA go shoot at the Texas Motor speedway. Who really need you know it's cool those guys? They're they've been a lot of fun to work with because you know they're they're like us there shooters and hunters now. You're kind of telling me some of the different things that are happening there. This is something that it's not necessarily a leave your family at home. I mean there's a bunch of stuff that probably the wife or the husband or the kids are gonNA enjoy his well. Absolutely there'd be thirteen what we're calling villages at the speedway so again. We'll have the hunting area shooting. Area will have an ATV area Mountain Bikes kayaks canoes boats. Rv's there's a camping village archery village fishing village There's something out there for literally anybody that wants to come. So what are the dates this? So it's may fifteen through seventeen locates a Friday Saturday Sunday right middle of May Right. And how do they find out more information about it so you? WanNa go to the D. Website and Just look for the ducks expo information. It's D. U. X. is that right. Yes that's what we're calling short unlimited expo. We're calling it the ducks ducks yes. Cool okay. All right so the ducks expo coming in May and if people WANNA do more with ducks unlimited right. Now how do they find out more? Get involved like you were mentioning earlier. We're not just for DOT.

"Thursday December twenty six from the same day you also hear from the franchise quarterback Carson Wentz but going back to the content of Doug's presser here for a moment he's going to update us on the injury. Status of guys like saks who is dealing with a rib injury and Jordan Howard. Who is looking like? He'll return from his mysterious shoulder injury that has kept him out since he saw his last action in week. Nine against the Chicago bears dialing back on Zach Ertz for a moment might follow. Had this to say a couple of days back on. NFL Network regarding the possibility of playing on Sunday against the giants. You heard Doug Peterson yesterday. Talk about how he was going through the full gamut of tests after he had an x ray during the game on Sunday and look. I mean there's a lot that goes into this more so than just pain management. You Know Zach Ertz. You know what he's going to do he's going to tell the team yes. I'm good. I can play. I can play through any any pain that I have my understanding is. He's already trying to do that. But what are ribs. Ribs are meant to protect things that are not as solid as Ritz things that are softer things things that are more vital so the eagles are really going to take a hard look at this and say if he goes back out on the field based on all of the tests all of the imaging that we have taken is is he gonNA put himself at further risk for more than just the bones there for the vital organs there so I don't have anybody ruling him out or in just yet based on the sources is that I have spoken to but I've got more people saying don't bank on him being out there on Sunday against the giants more than people saying. Yeah he's he's GonNa play through it so keep an eye a close eye on this one. Throughout the week on Twitter Dr David Chow Aka pro football dot co tweeted that clip saying that he would lean lean towards arts playing because quote a he has already played with the ribs broken versus the cowboys be eagles. Short pass catchers and need to win see eh that is just who he is on quote. He has a great point there so hopefully Erz can make a go of it without re injuring himself. I'd assume he'd be on some sort of type of pitch count perhaps making the bulk of his contributions and snaps on third down and the red zone which is where he's made his biggest impact for the eagles breaking down that impact looking at just third downs. Erz It's ranks fourth among tight ends with twenty nine targets. He sold in eighteen of those one hundred ninety eight yards two touchdowns and fifteen first downs. Those numbers of course the highest on on the eagles in every category in the red zone among the league's wide receivers tight ends and running backs Earth's his tied for eleventh in Red Zone targets with sixteen and he has got eight of those with five touchdowns since joining League in two thousand Thirteen Zach hurts has been the most productive wide receiver or tight end in the air against the New York giants since two two thousand thirteen ninety three targets. That's I seventy receptions. That's I eight hundred seven yards. That's also I seven touchdowns that second only Jason Witten who says ten by the way and then thirty nine first downs. which is I so obviously? The hope is that he can go in some capacity and continue to be a giant killer. Moving moving onto some roster moves. These all happened on Christmas Eve as Ronald Darby was placed on. I are the quarterback running back Jay Ajayi was waived tight end. Richard Rogers was re signed wide receiver. Dante Burnett was promoted from the practice squad. And I swear I'm not making this up but river craft who was a wide receiver lever was signed to the practice squad and some quick programming notes here before we continue here tomorrow. You're going to get a jam packed lineup with a new. BGN radio from Jimmy. Kamsky branly gallon. May he forever reign also a new kissed and so lack that will look briefly back at the Dallas game before heading up a preview of the all important upcoming showdown with the giants silence. You'll also be getting a new on broad with the awesome and amazing pairing of Sam Wilson and Jessica Town and keep an eye out for new. QB SCO show which will likely be dropping on Saturday morning so apologize for the wonky week in terms of scheduling holidays are always a fun stretch to get through. I hope you had a merry Christmas. And now that we're mostly through all of those those things at should get back to normal hopefully next week. We'll be previewing a playoff game very soon. which is where we really bring the game? All right enough housecleaning. Doug Peterson chat with the media on Thursday is coming up next. Then we'll take a quick break and get you to Carson Wentz as he was at the podium early be on time when times involved they say what my coach told me talk with nothing. New Rib injury injury. He is progressing getting better. So we'll keep monitoring him each day but you know he won't practice. It was the approach with Jordan held. What's the approach? The approaches to continue to monitor him. And you know keep keep him coming up from the standpoint of getting him back into the offense I think mentally and physically a you know we gotta we gotTa make sure that he's in in game ready shape first of all sorts of conditioning. That has to go involved with that but the biggest thing is just getting caught up from mental standpoint in a pretty significant role obviously injury miles as well recently. How do you navigate that? I honestly don't think much has to change. I think Jordan is a is a piece to the puzzle. I think he can obviously add depth. You know But miles miles has been sort of hot hand here lately and we want to continue that painkillers thing or would you vote. What you gotta be cleared I mean I had one of these one time in in their discomfort. I mean it's it's not fun but yeah we we're GONNA make sure that he's he's ready before going back out there so not yet so We're GONNA continue tomorrow him today. He'll he'll be reassessed by doctors this afternoon and so the hope is that he gets excuse. Cleared maybe this afternoon refocusing or greater deal of those. Since you have padded for less giant's game will guys in Locker Room Said said the doctor attention elbow. Sort of.

"How liberalism is no different from Nazis in one Nazism, isn't that bad? Anyway. Which I stand. I still I still have that one for sale on Amazon. Right. I told you not to self publish. I let you try. You're going to end up spending more than you make you you're you're being a real out of cap on Nazi right? The. If I'm if I'm on a sinking ship and on my got one book for the next ten years. I'm gonna not because I'm so fucking noble and open minded, I'm gonna I'm gonna take the the feminist book because it's going to have more information that that I don't already have an don't suffer from, you know, I'm kind of like, I don't Dan just read my book give it a chance. I don't wanna know. I don't want to be able to if I don't wanna be in a convert what conversation I ever gonna have in the future where I'm going to be thinking boil boy, this would go so much better as bad as it's going. God it would go better. If I just had the academic chops to prove that maternity leave is unfair. I just don't have the fucking noodle for it. I do have the noodle for it. That's the problem. Whether I believe it passionately or not what I don't have in. My head is is the is the reasons why people be talking about other stuff, and I want to I want people to say that again. Do you? Stay on building seven. What's the what is the least popular opinion? I it's I Spencer said something really funny because we were talking about because I'm I'm gonna listen to the I'm gonna listen to the Jordan Peterson thing. But you were you were talking about the natural naturalists thing when you're going like some of this stuff is like people say you gonna listen to this guy. And then you listen to the guy and it's like, oh, he's so smart. And it's like they got a PHD and they're like, oh, man. They gave lecture and it was so amazing the way they broke it down, and like a lot of comes down to like naturalism tropes were like, hey, people aren't naturally monogamous or the way humans work, isn't like this or that. And it's like I said, yeah. But people don't poop in toilets naturally. Like, we just kind of took relate. And you and you said, yeah. Spencer summation of the naturalists fallacy is like like, hey, man, ducks don't be gay. That's the that's the fallacy people say, yeah, the naturalization see is ducks. Don't be gay. I didn't I didn't. I didn't sit in the retail that it's that people say, oh, this isn't natural. Therefore, it's bad. And then they say like, oh like an argument against gay marriage like being gays on natural. It's like duck duck aren't gay in the wild animals aren't gay. And then, of course animals are gained the wild. But like, but like that it's a fallacy that people make to prove their point when again, but I found sees an invalid argument by nature. Anyway, I do a lot of research. I love it. I'm on. I'm online all the time. Checking things Rian things who knows if they're good or bad. I don't know. It's the internet. But basically everything that I understand about during Peterson's just comes down to that fallacy. It's like, well, actually it turns out like lobsters like kill each other. And so like, it's fine to want. Kill each other. Or like, you know, it's just all that fallacy where it's just like. Well, no, that's not true. And it's anything else giving one of those talks. Somebody just starts from the audience going like, hey, I like your wife. I wanna fuck your wife. He's like sorry, excuse me. Like, he wouldn't have security escort that personnel. Right. Because he doesn't believe in marriage, and he'd be happy. If he is married to have a stronger person with a louder voice. That felt like talking at that moment like microphones aren't fucking cavemen. But I'm not I'm not I'm not speaking. I'm not lampooning this person. Because I don't want to commit the crime of like making you've you've maybe read or heard him. I'm just I'm just done Reese riffing on the idea of the people that go like, you know, monogamy is not a thing. Like in fifty eight countries and stuff. It's like. Yeah. Man..
